Earth’s Ecocide: Climate Change 2647 by David A. Collier is an insightful, haunting work of science fiction for our times. Set in the year 2647, a mysterious entity comes to Earth to try to save the planet from itself--with climate change being the focal point. But is it too late for the planet to be saved? Flood and heat are still destroying Earth, and human life hangs in the balance. Because of climate change, there is now war, hunger, and pestilence. Governments are disintegrating. This story unfolds through a Parisian family, and it is through them that we live this story and hope for their survival, and the survival of Earth's inhabitants. All of the familiar constructs have failed, and the future seems bleak, or non-existent.
Collier has created a compelling fictional look into Earth's future if climate change should continue on a course of destruction. The planet we live on may change so much that it can't sustain life as we know it. The author lays before his audience a scenario that is frightening, yet hopeful at the same time. This novel is full of intriguing characters, an irresistible plot, and rich detail. The dialogue is energetic, and the pacing is slow-burn at first, then builds toward suspense. Some science fiction stories are hard to relate to, but this one hits close to home. The characters are likable (Kutter, Vela, Livia, Dr. Hamlet, etc.), and face so much responsibility. And The Blue Orb plays a big part as well. Even if it is a what-if scenario, it really does make you stop and think about the future of our planet and the fate of the human race. Sometimes it takes a work of fiction to understand the reality right in front of you. This novel should be a wake-up call to pay close attention to climate change, ecology, and the environment, and try to learn as much about it as we can. Earth’s Ecocide: Climate Change 2647 by David A. Collier is more than a novel. It can affect change and influence hearts and minds.
