Climate change is escalating rapidly. Charles Peters, a low-level nobody in what’s left of the UN, is sent on an unexplained mission to save humanity. Madé, an Indonesian child refugee, must endure the powerlessness of ‘people-processing’ in an era of displacement and disease. Marie-Claude Bertillon must take responsibility for the lives of these, and many millions more, as she seeks to implement a radical solution. All are victims of the terrible choices made in the historical past – today. The first book in a series of personal histories, ‘The Changes’ plays out the shocking reality of what the world will be like for the people of tomorrow if we fail to take action now.
