Abstract:

The earth continues its relentless plunge toward total environmental collapse in this sequel to Forty Signs of Rain (2004).

As a result of climate change, Antarctica's ice shelves collapse, sending low-lying island nations beneath the rising waters, and crops fail world-wide. When winter comes, frigid temperatures hit the Eastern Seaboard and Western Europe. As people starve and freeze to death, multinational corporations explore how to profit from the disaster. Meanwhile, in Washington D.C., scientists continue in their struggle to overcome government resistence to implementing vital environmental policies while frantically searching for a way to shift weather patterns and save the planet from another devastating Ice Age.
