GreensWord: A Tale of Extreme Global Warming

Donald J. Bingle, Author . Five Star $25.95 (261p) ISBN 978-1-59414-728-9

This heavy-handed take on environmentalism neither amuses nor provokes. The three core members of an obscure environmental group, GreensWord, are desperate to save their floundering organization. Using a million-dollar donation, Milo, Zeke and Brandon decide to buy a nuke on the black market and detonate it in Mount Rainier Park. They hope the chain reaction from the volcano will set off a nuclear winter that will eliminate global warming, at least until a permanent solution can be developed. The would-be ecoterrorists are remarkably untroubled by the anticipated loss of life (“Man is a blight on the planet,” Milo declares), and the government experts trying to stop them are conveniently incompetent. Unfortunately, Bingle (Conversion ) lacks the deft touch that would turn a saga of clumsy single-mindedness into effective satire. (Jan.)
