cussler_pittI’ve been a fan of Clive Cussler’s Dirk Pitt series for a long time now. The NUMA (National Underwater and Marine Agency) scientist/adventurer and his sidekick Al Giordino always manage to get wrapped up in plots and villains that would have even James Bond envious. I’m a little late to the game for a novel that was released Novemer 25th, but it’s worth mentioning that Pitt’s latest adventure, Arctic Drift, involves global warming and the energy crisis. Cussler is always great at weaving environmental themes into this novels, so it’s no surprise that we see these two subjects finally addressed. From the Amazon details,

“In 2011, as the price of gas hits $10 a gallon, President Garner Ward must contend with a corrupt Canadian cabal that’s subverting efforts to solve America’s energy problems. Pitt barely escapes serious injury when a bomb destroys a D.C. lab along with records of research into an artificial photosynthesis process that could, almost immediately, eliminate the threat of global warming. That discovery may be connected with a legendary failed 19th-century sailing expedition to the Arctic as well as a series of deaths due to the phenomena that the Native Americans of British Columbia know as the Devil’s Breath.”

Time to head to the library! For more on Arctic Drift, jump here.
