The year is 2043. The climate we once took for granted is in shambles. People no longer talk about the weather—they tremble at it. In an effort to cool down the overheated planet, the Center for Meteorological Controls is set to launch the largest geoengineering project in mankind’s history. One of their young scientists, Dr. Warren Randolf, discovers a disastrous flaw in the design that could have grave consequences for the ten billion people living on earth. This is the thrilling tale of the people who made the decision to proceed. It is a story of betrayal, bravery and folly. Read it and you will change the way you think about climate change forever.

Die Familie Bigtree ist weit über Floridas Sümpfe hinaus für ihren Vergnügungspark Swamplandia berühmt. Ava träumte schon immer davon, der große Star der Alligatoren-Show zu werden, doch seit dem Tod ihrer Mutter bleiben die Zuschauer weg. Nachdem erst ihr Bruder, dann ihr Vater aufs Festland verschwunden sind, ist das Mädchen alleine für die Insel und die siebzig Alligatoren verantwortlich – und für ihre ältere Schwester Osceola, die ihr Herz an einen Geist verloren hat. Als auch noch Osceola abhaut, bricht Ava zu einer gefährlichen Odyssee durch den Sumpf auf. Statt gegen Alligatoren kämpft sie nun um ihre Familie und entpuppt sich dabei als wahre Heldin.
