In Arctic Rising, global warming isn't as bad as you thought it was going to be. The opening of the Artic Ocean grants access to all the natural resources that had previously been buried under ice. This leads to the growing economic power of the Artic Tigers, Canada, Greenland, etc. The region is patrolled by the United Nations Polar Guard. When UNPG airship pilot Anika Duncan is shot down by the crew of a Gaia Corporation ship, more then the earth begins to heat up. It seems that not everyone is cool with global warming. Buckell has created an interesting and plausible world populated by realistic characters, hopefully he'll return here for another book. My only complaint is that the ending seemed a little rushed.
