Excellent, excellent, excellent novel about climate change, our wanton destruction of the planet, and the impending demise of our species. One group comes up with a drastic remedy. I related far too much with the protagonist who was from Texas, relocated to San Francisco, and who speaks with a sarcastic humor in a wry voice. Really enjoyed it.
I read this many years ago (90's) and recently picked up a copy in a used bookstore to read again. This story had stayed with me & with our current changed weather patterns, remains a frightening reminder of what may lay ahead for all of us. Too bad Mona Clee is no longer writing cause I would love to read another of her books. Still have "Branch Point" to read though.
