    One thought on “Heat”

    1. Somewhere in a secret underground laboratory, Lawrence Pick - an engineer who predicted and analyzed large-scale calamities that might affect the national security of the United States - gathers startling evidence that the world's weather may be rapidly changing, as a prelude to a fundamental alteration in global climate. They call him an alarmist - a gloomy, anxious pessimist. Lawrence resented the label, but for himself and a team of equally skilled scientists, the evidence is irrefutable. Whe [...]

    2. Set in the late 20th century, this story is shows how the world becomes dystopian in a span of a few months. And it is one man's job (or so he thinks) to save the world from a runaway greenhouse.I thoroughly enjoyed the book, although i was baffled at some places by the human response/ behavior the author imagined.

    3. A ridiculous book in many ways, with ridiculous characters doing ridiculous things. It's a quick and easy read, though, and I enjoyed this for its cheap cheesy camp value. The sexism is egregious, and that will be a show-stopper for some readers. While not a "good" book, it is notable for a couple reasons.1) There is a smattering of science in this fiction. I mean actual, honest-to-goodness citations from contemporary nonfiction publications. Footnotes right in the text! I don't recall seeing th [...]

    4. Arthur Herzog’s “Heat” (1977) has a high novelty factor, in that it’s a 40-year-old novel that speculates about one of the most controversial issues of our time: global warming/climate change. Despite that novelty, however, there’s not a whole lot to recommend “Heat.” Apart from a couple great sections in the last fourth of the novel that cast a sociological eye on a warming event, most of the narrative is scientists in rooms, talking. The prose and expertise on display are impress [...]

    5. it took a long time to get the main point and when it did it kept dragging on. The idea was great but it could have been done better.
