2074 -The world is at the tipping point. Climate change, food, water, and energy shortages, as well as political unrest are changing the geopolitical order on the planet. The future looks grim. Will there be a way to save the planet from collapse and possible war? Dr. Nathan Ezekial, a Canadian scientist, leads a project to develop a solution to the world's energy and climate problems, through fusion power. He is finding his way challenged by a dark and sinister political movement, one that threatens to kill his efforts. By luck he joins forces with a brilliant political scientist, Kate Smythe. She has the smarts and insight to see into what is happening. Between them they must navigate the complex world of politics in the latter twenty first century. The power centres of the world are re-aligning, old alliances are failing, new and surprising partnerships evolved. It will take all of their skills to see their way through the political maze and ensure that science triumphs over dogmatic ideology. Will they succeed?
