This is the story of the murder of a man of our time. An environmental champion committed to the fight against Global Warming with a perfect public image but a background of a dark and treacherous rise to power. Someone who routinely uses for his own purposes all whom he encounters, hides it cleverly but is despised by those he has crossed.
A man with a debasing attitude to women who manages to ultimately pose as a tragic widower. With no understanding of the mechanics of Global Warming, he yet uses it as the agency of his self-promotion. He has no opinion as to the truth of the matter but accepts the growing absurdity and hysteria of its application. When he encounters evidence that others may be vastly more cynical and corrupt in their exploitation of saving the planet his impotent fury results in an increasing retreat from reality.
This leads him to lash out devastatingly and recklessly when the concept is challenged. He becomes too wild for the Establishment to handle so they quietly abandoned him. Set in London, the West of Scotland and several other global locations, it is a cautionary story of the seeming invincible who ignore the fact that somebody may be keeping a tally.
