On the fiftieth anniversary of Earth Day, humanity can no longer bring antiquated systems to bear against the climate problems that have been washing over the species for decades. Having inherited a bulwark against the changing climate, our children now stare at the beast of our making: The Greenhouse Laws are invoked. The malevolent bastard-child of the United Nations' Kyoto Protocol, the Greenhouse Laws limit energy usage by eliminating automobile transport, travel without a pass, availability of heat, refrigeration, and clean water without approval. Any non-approved energy consuming activity by the population has become illegal--of course there are always Privileges.Daniel H. Gottlieb paints a canvas of hope as we begin to look deeper into this event called global warming. He takes us into a world that could easily be the story of our lives. A novel that calls out the scientific and environmental dilemmas we will pass on to the future generations, it also calls forth the best in humanity. As well as the evocation that a lack of energy equals a lack of freedom. Editorial Reviews:Elites TV /July 2004 ... Breathtaking novel by Environmental Philosopher D.H. Gottlieb paints the most chillingly realistic picture ever of the coming environmental calamity. KBC Media / July 2004 ...The '1984' of environmental thrillers for its realistic depiction of the social and political upheaval brought about by Global Warming.
