                                        Mounting Ecosystem Disruption

                                                   A Notorious Murder
                                             A Rogue Diplomatic Scheme

When Dr. Ilsa Hartquist, an outspoken climate scientist, is murdered in 2020, the Canadian investigators assigned to the case are convinced the motive lies in her push for a controversial, untested method to slow global warming. They are determined to find not only the murderer but also those who paid for her assassination.

With each passing year, the world Dr. Hartquist left behind suffers from more extreme storms, disappearing polar icecaps, recurring floods, and falling agricultural and fishery yields. These changes disrupt modern coastal cities and undermine national economies everywhere. But the world’s leaders are unwilling to act, as the desire for short-term economic gains eclipses the long-term well-being of humanity.

Frustrated by the global paralysis, a handful of small-state diplomats pursue a rogue plan to implement a solar geoengineering experiment, disregarding international procedures and institutions, in a desperate attempt to save their island nations and humanity.

Their project uncovers other surreptitious climate interventions, causing perilous political and military conflict. Intense diplomatic confrontations ultimately force fundamental international decisions on global governance of geoengineering.
