I read a book in the 1980s that involved global warming. I remember very little of the story. it described mega-storms and there is a long stretch when a group of people are in a large rv getting to higher ground to escape flooding.
can anyone suggest books that fit this vague description?
here's some more information. the hero is a scientist and he was in the rv. it could be from the early 90s but i remember it was the first book i came across that dealt with global warming.
it is not a series.
before posting here i searched for global warming science fiction and read summaries of the books i found. it is not by Kim Stanley Robinson or Margaret Atwood.
it is none of these:
- The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell
- The Drowned World by J.G. Ballard
- Heavy Weather by Bruce Sterling
- Mother of Storms by John Barnes Odds
- Against Tomorrow by Nathaniel Rich
- The Sea and The Summer by George Turner
- Surviving Abe by J.Z. O'Brien
- The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi
i answered the question below. it is two different books: "Heat" by Arthur Herzog and "Rings of Ice" by Piers Anthony.
i am very thankful to all of you. this question has been nagging me for thirty years, just about every time we've had a big hurricane.
i am amazed at how quickly you all helped me find the answer.
