Joe Dacyabout this book: Global warning has been a hot topic for much of my adult life. I was surprised to find that scientists really don't agree on human-caused climate change. In July of last year, I read a news story concerning a new model for predicting solar cycles, which predicts that Cycle 26, from 2030 to 2040, will usher in a mini-ice age.
What more could a science-fiction author need to start a book!?
The scariest part is that ALL of the scientific climate data, charts, graphs, the quotations and especially the segment about the prediction of the "hibernation" of the sun in Cycle 26 from Report #4 from the National Astronomy Meeting in Wales in July of 2015 is TRUE.
Even the weather reports from when my characters, Amy and John, were born and during the various scenes are the actual figures or events from those days.
The USGS really did have a "push" for their the polar bear program in 2007. I researched the actual type of tranquilizer used for polar bears (MZT), and the ones that aren't supposed to be used.
Of course, the rest of it, from 2016 on, is pure fiction. But who knows?
But it's not all science. It's got military action, romance, a mystery ... Everything you'd expect. And lots and lots of cool graphics.
