Charles Sobczak — The Year of the Bad Decision

Research, Research, Research… Sobczak must have spent years on research for this book. Even though it is fiction, it is loaded with facts about climate change. The novel is SF/speculative fiction and the year of the bad decision was 2043. The author says he may have compressed events a bit, but I’m not so sure he did. Sometimes I feel climate events are moving faster than anyone predicts.

The Center for Meteorological Controls has plans to send tiny nanomirrors into the atmosphere to mitigate global warming by reflecting sunlight to cool the earth. Dr. Warren Randolph has discovered a flaw in the design that could send the world into a short-term ice age and likely kill a large percentage of its ten billion people. Of course, he is ignored. He moves to a farm in a remote area of Montana and gathers his friends around him to try to live out the coming disaster.

It’s a good story along with much information about our planet and the consequences of climate change.
