I have to include a cli-fi novel that will appeal to climate denialists, and this thriller will appeal to anyone. Where it falls down is in the lengthy anti-science passages. A former CSIRO colleague is referenced in a part of the book that masquerades as science, but in true anti-science form the reference is misappropriated. Still, a classic Crichton sci-fi (cli-fi) page-turner. – 10 Great Books on Climate Change Fiction
