Publisher's Summary

The year is 2062 and humanity has reached the "tipping point" of which the world's scientists had warned. A global blanket of CO2 has raised temperatures so high that ice sheets melted, seas rose, coral died, species migrated, and farms became poisoned by salt water. And, no matter what mankind could now do, the blanket and its effects would last for hundreds of years.

The few feet of ocean rise will be succeeded by a return to seas historically 200 feet higher than currently. Droughts, floods, and mass human die-offs will initiate wars.

A bright physics student invents a way to travel faster than light so that humanity may escape from the horrors of global warming. He must persuade his peers, fight deniers, and combat rising oceans - all the while managing a complex love life.
