Overview

It's 2028. The human race is divided on how to deal with the threatening eco-legacy of the twentieth century. Calls for a strong, centralized response mount, but skeptics of institutional power seek another way.

A prominent Brazilian healer is poisoned by toxic flower-essence. The leader of the Palestinian peace movement is shot, in bed with a Shin Bet operative. A Peruvian community organizer falls 600 meters to his death. The deaths entangle a rainforest ecologist, a New Age dreamer, a Palestinian peace activist, and a U.S. Senator's aide. The four find themselves suspects in a high-stakes game. Seductions, searches, surveillance and renditions unfold as part of a plot with planetary aims.

Themes of power, self-discovery, spirit, and nature are explored in a likely near-future as the protagonists crisscross the globe. Warming! is an inspired new title in the emerging cli-fi tradition.

"This wonderful eco-thriller is a page turner. Bill Espinosa presents a vision of a path toward global sanity, almost unimaginable in today's world, but the elements are there before our eyes. He has a broad-based understanding of how ecosystems connect with politics, society and everyday life; and paints his multidimensional portrait with a wonderful cast of characters."
-Steve Nachmanovitch, Author, Free Play: Improvisation in Art and Life

"Warming! is a good story with vivid characters; the voice of nature is wrapped around a probing vision of how an ecologically threatened planet will govern itself."
-Dr. Abdul Aziz Said, Founder, Center for Global Peace, American University
