Disappointing at least to me Some things worked continued exploration of the ways climate change could go wrong characters I still was intrigued by a couple of nice presentations of weather disasters in interesting detail But somehow it walked away from the the things I liked best about the first one Really not as focused on how scientists really work on how science policy is really made and much less of a sense of Washington DC as a place Too much of a focus on surveillance and suspense issues and on a political campaign which made this less interesting I actually had to force myself to finish the book which I did only because I d liked the first book so muchI really liked the first book in this series Forty Signs of Rain I ve seen few pieces of fiction as good at showing how science interacts with policy issues I liked the portrayal of the different ways two scientists now working at NSF balance their science their commitment to doing science support for a time and their personal lives I really enjoyed the way Robinson gave a sense of great DC spots as they were in 2005 whether work sites for the science community or just fun spots like Second Story Books All of those things seemed to be subordinated in this book to something like a techno thrillerI don t usually force myself to finish a book and I don t usually take so long to finish a novel I read this in pieces across two countries two trips and at least thirty meals I had learned to care about the characters enough and I had enough faith in Robinson s writing to keep going But it didn t really work for me Characters that had seemed three dimensional in the first book became one dimensional in this oneSo why even 2 stars Truth is that I was interested enough to keep coming back and I wanted to see how it played out The no Gulf Stream winter was interesting and Frank s decision to live in a post flood Rock Creek Park treehouse led to some nice ideas It wasn t a waste of my time But it was significantly worse than just pales in comparison to the first book I m in no hurry to grab the finale

Trilogy by author most famous for the Mars trilogy about a group of scientists that terraform Mars the obvious premise of this set is that the earth itself needs terraforming in response to climate changeglobal warming and that scientists need to take of an active involvement politically both with the electorate and with those who have previously controlled their purse strings and that the research bodies need to actively set the research agenda a new Manhattan project or race for the moon rather than responding to proposals receivedMain characters are based around the NSF the US research body responsible for evaluating funding proposals mainly Anna uibler whose husband Charlie stays at home with their hyper active younger son Joe while working as an advisor particularly on environmental matters to a famous Democrat world senator Phil Chase and Frank Vanderwal initially on a one year secondment from which he resigns to the NSF leader Diana Chang he then retracts his resignation when she permits him to lead a redirection of the NSF into an aggressive programme to investigate ways to mitigate climate change both medium and short term Frank is homeless in his second year and ends up living in a treehouse in the park while starting a relationship with Caroline a mysterious girl with whom he was trapped in a lift Eventually she reveals that she is a government agent married to a sinister agent who has been assigned to track Frank who through various of his activities particularly his relationship with a researcher Yann who worked both for NSF and a biotech firm he was involved in and who is investigating the use of mathematical algorithms which Frank realises could be used to help genetic engineering In both books the earth s climate is changing drastically due to a hyper El Nino in Forty Signs of Rain which leads to Washington being flooded and the shutting down of the Gulf Stream in Fifty Degrees Below with Europe and US hit by a severe winter followed by the collapse of large parts of the Antarctic ice sheet This the intervention of the NSF in politics and Caroline s intervention to give Frank an election fixing programme which one of his ex intelligence colleagues Eduardo manages to reverse lead to Phil Chase s election as president The first acts of terraforming are an NSF organised and reinsurance funded dump of massive uantities of salt to restart the Gulf Stream and a USSR effort to build on work by Yann as well as Frank s ex Marta to engineer trees with the ability to absorb extra CO2 followed by an effort to pump sea water caused by the into natural basins in dry areas of the world again with reinsurance funding and back onto the stable parts of the Antarctic ice sheetOther themes of the book which at first detract then dominate and then become the story are Frank s emphasis that man is at roots a savannah based primate with the history of civilisation being too short to have changed our evolutionary instincts he often observes and analyses behaviour in this light but also sees his lifestyle as a return to his original roots and plays golf Frisbee with a group of free gans who only eat food they can scavenge as well as tracking animals freed from the zoo during the flood The importance of physical exercise and the outdoors the characters spend extended periods of the narrative backpacking kayaking and climbing often with no other narrative development involved Mental ability and the brains function in light of seeming damage to Frank s judgement and decision making ability following an attack and blow to the nose Buddhism and its relation to science and knowledge particularly the Tibetan exiles who come to Washington to lobby for the sea level threatened island nation of Khembalung which then is inundated when a piece of ice breaks of Antarctica Government surveillance including the use of virtual futures markets with automated players used to assess potential security risks as well as series of competing and ultra secret agencies The failures of market based capitalism particularly in the light of costs which it externalises such as climate change The book portrays it as a feudalistic system where workers don t get the benefit of their own capital production and where the World Bankfree market system has effectively led to the elimination and apparent impossibility of other free moral and co operative systems The 19th Century American Philosophers Transcendentalist Ralph Waldo Emerson and naturalist Henry Thoreau
