I absolutely love historical fiction and read a lot of it; I love to learn history this way. I also enjoy reading science fiction, fantasy, horror, thriller and non-fiction science.
Tales from the Warming presents a series of ten short stories set in the near future that tells about the impact of global warming on human life. All of these stories exhibit in a very realistic fashion what will happen to people from all around the Earth if we do not try to stop or at least slow or global Carbon Dioxide emissions. Beginning with the very near future in 2022, we follow a weather reported to the top of Kilimanjaro where the last of the snow is melting. This event in itself is not all that dramatic, but it is just the tip of the iceberg. The emotion in the writing that is conveyed through this one event is what carried me through the rest of the stories in the book. As the years pass, the effects of climate change spread and take route in humans lives, causing the characters to adapt and change their way of life as the new climate takes hold.
