Termination shock : a novel / Neal Stephenson.

Stephenson, Neal, (author.).

Summary

Summary:

A billionaire has an idea for reversing global warming, but will it work? And what will the consequences for the planet be? A disparate group of characters from around the globe fight to solve the problem of global warming, but some of their ideas may be worse than climate change itself.
The greenhouse effect has resulted in a whirling-dervish troposphere of superstorms, rising sea levels, global flooding, and deadly pandemics. Visionary billionaire restaurant chain magnate T. R. Schmidt, Ph.D., has a master plan for reversing global warming. He brings together a disparate group of people from different cultures and continents who grapple with the real-life repercussions of global warming. Ultimately, they must face the question: Might the cure be worse than the disease? -- adapted from jacket
