Publisher's Summary

With uncanny skill, Arthur Herzog, best-selling author of The Swarm and Earthsound has blended fiction and fact into a terrifying and highly plausible story of the near future: a time when tensions mount as ecological doom beckons.

Lawrence Pick, engineer, gathers startling evidence that the worlds weather may be rapidly changing, as a prelude to a fundamental alteration in global climate. In a secret underground laboratory, he and a team of equally skilled scientists learn that the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, largely due to the overuse of energy, will ascend to the point where no living thing can survive. Picks predictions become a reality as freakish weather conditions prevail: extraordinary tornados and hurricanes, droughts, violent hailstorms, and windstorms and savage waterspouts. Condition Green is no longer a theory as destruction runs rampant, but still neither the U.S. Government nor the people will listen. Too late, the result of mans indifference is everywherewith only one hope for survival.
