Summary
  • A billionaire has an idea for reversing global warming, but will it work? And what will the consequences for the planet be? A disparate group of characters from around the globe fight to solve the problem of global warming, but some of their ideas may be worse than climate change itself
  • The greenhouse effect has resulted in a whirling-dervish troposphere of superstorms, rising sea levels, global flooding, and deadly pandemics. Visionary billionaire restaurant chain magnate T. R. Schmidt, Ph.D., has a master plan for reversing global warming. He brings together a disparate group of people from different cultures and continents who grapple with the real-life repercussions of global warming. Ultimately, they must face the question: Might the cure be worse than the disease? -- adapted from jacket
