Sixty Days and Counting concludes Kim Stanley Robinson's Capital Climatology Crisis, but the weather trilogy ends not with thunder, hail, tornadoes , a new ice age or a killer drought, but but with a spring day and another turn of the great mandala. It turns out that a disaster movie really is better than a book by a Hard SF author. The Day After Tomorrow may have been a classic disaster movie with laughable science, but in the end it was more entertaining than KSR's countdown to global warming. From official release/information:
From back of book: Food scarcity, housing shortages, diminishing medical care, vanishing species -- these are just some of the consequences of a global weather pattern gone haywire. President-elect Phil Chase has responded by organizing the most ambitious plan to save the world since FDR -- and assembling a team of top scientists and political advisors to implement it. But is it already too late?
