About my latest book, A Truthful Myth: A Novel
Global warming: Will you survive the global warming devastation many climate scientists say is coming? What should we do? Who and what should we believe?
The story: In the early twenty-first century, a former U.S.senator, who has become known as the Oracle, brings to the world's attention some incredible knowledge about man's alarming contribution to the troubling issue of global warming. He predicts a dire and catastrophic climate change that will occur much sooner than anyone thought.
The Oracle, in conjunction with renowned Princeton science professor Richard Compton, convinces the president of the United States that something drastic must be done to counteract the extreme weather that will devastate many areas of the United States. Under the firm direction of his powerful chief-of-staff [the villanous "Chief"], the president creates a Master Plan that calls for relocating 300 million people to a safe area. Strict sanctions will eliminate the burning of fossil fuels, and New America goes green.
Meanwhile, talented chemical engineers Michael Reynolds and Rose Haines discover new facts about the vagaries of climate change, learn more about the human natures of the American people, and wonder at the alarming turbulence in the outside world. The Master Plan may not be enough to save the American people.

Human-induced global warming they called it. Perhaps debatable, but let's assume the science was right at that time, but was it really "done"? Are climate models projecting the future really right? Can we rely upon them? Are we facing a gradual climate change to which we can adapt? An abrupt catastrophic change? No change? A cooling cycle? Should we trust, but verify? Truth or myth? Or ...
