What if global financiers manipulated the global warming crisis to gain control over humanitys resources, freedoms, and population? What if someone with the financial and technical abilities decided mankind was a virus and used carbon dioxide trapping technology to plunge population levels by crashing life-essential CO2 to new lows? These are questions Anna Picard must face in The Carbon Trap, the first book in The Carbon Series. At the height of the global warming crisis, the United Nations attempts to control all carbon emissions, and authorizes a series of programs it deems necessary to save humanity. A progressive US government enthusiastically endorses the UN Carbon Trapping program, and to help pay for it, will impose carbon taxes, draconian regulations, and... it will secretly sell Alaska. Anna Picard is an amoral fixer, an employee Agenda 21 member and global financier Alexis Swansen had trained to help recruit his corporate army and neutralize his enemies. It is her job to unleash a global hacker network to help destroy the carbon based industries and funnel insider-trading profits to Swansen. One of her recruits is Dr. Sven Johansson, a brilliant geneticist and President of Snath Biotechnology, who designs life forms to trap CO2. But Sven has more ambitious plans. At a UN conference in the Maldives held to impose draconian carbon regulations, not everyone is happy, some industrial executives realize data has been falsified. To protect her scheme, Anna frames one of the execs for murder. Her plans are complicated when she falls in love with Dr. Pete Heyward, the son of the man she framed for murder. Pete is a US Marine amputee who sees past her malevolent deeds to rejuvenate the morality of her youth. After a series of genetically modified carbon trapping life forms is unleashed upon the Earth, Anna must confront the evils she helped unleash, and prevent an even bigger disaster from unfolding that would destroy most life on Earth. This is a high-tech ecological thriller that takes the reader from the Maldives, to the French Riviera, and the heartland of Texas. It introduces cutting edge technologies and concepts, used for the first time in a novel, that reveal striking implications for society.
