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 inMoreOUT 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.
