Out of the Depths by @NoelHodson
OUT OF THE DEPTHS – Is an “unputtabledownable” fact based drama, set in the Thames London estuary as global warming floods the coastal margins and billions of people worldwide grudgingly migrate to higher ground. What happens to London also occurs in New York and all coastal settlements.
The destruction of transport routes disrupts food supplies and the measures for containment of pandemics. Avian flu’ H5N1 kills 80% of the human race. The heroine, Alice, survives by secretly dwelling on the upper floors in Harrods, surrounded by deep, dangerous and filthy water, to eventually emerge and join other survivors, including the politically ambitious, self-appointed Dean of London University and ruthless agents of once aristocratic land owners.
Alice, supported by a nuclear submarine captain, James Cruikshank, opposes “politics and power as usual”, and is murdered for spreading radical and seditious ideas. An overt battle for who will rule Britain commences.
The book ends with the compass pointing to the brave new world which will result. Throughout, quotes from the scientific literature and tales from Londoners’ lives paint an accurate picture – if a little accelerated – of what global warming will bring us.
Fact based? You're joking, right? I'm laughing. I used to get angry about this pseudo-science construct, but now laugh, especially when someone fails to keep up. It isn't "global warming" anymore, not for several years now since that was disproven. The belief now is in "global climate change". Well, that's true enough. Where it goes off the rails is when they add "...caused by man". So call it what it is: Fantasy. It may even be a good one but you won't catch me wasting time on it when it's billed as "fact based"...
