A Notorious Murder
Mounting Ecosystem Disruption
A Rogue Diplomatic Scheme
When outspoken climate scientist Dr. Ilsa Hartquist is murdered in June of 2020, investigators are convinced the motive was to end her forceful advocacy of controversial, untested solar geoengineering methods to slow global warming. They are determined to find both the assassin and those who paid for it.
The world Hartquist leaves behind suffers more extreme storms, shrinking polar icecaps, recurring floods, and falling agricultural and fishery yields. Worsening destruction disrupts coastal cities and undermine national economies. Governments topple as millions of subsistence farmers and fishermen, facing starvation and ruin, demand relief.
But the world’s leaders are paralyzed, as desires for short-term economic gain eclipse the long-term well-being of humanity. No nation is volunteering to provide significant relocation assistance or take in climate refugees.
Stunned by Hartquist’s death and frustrated by the global inaction, a handful of small-state diplomats embark on a rogue scheme to begin a secret solar geoengineering project, ignoring international procedures and institutions. The odds of
success for their attempt to save their island nations and humanity are low, and the threat to their careers and lives is tangible, but they persist.
uncovers another surreptitious climate intervention, causing perilous military, political,
and diplomatic confrontations. The crisis ultimately forces
the United States and other world leaders to make fundamental decisions on United Nations governance of solar geoengineering.
