Set in 2032 with a newly elected president who has a mandate for change but is faced with insurmountable problems caused by climate change (requiring the relocation of millions from the south). He finds out it is worse than he had thought and he needs to broker a deal with China to cut back on carbon emissions. As someone who favors consensus, this means going around Kyoto and leads to unexpected events. Probably the scariest comment is that as a people we don't take real action until a catastrophe makes us. Worrying.
