The Precipice

The Precipice (The Asteroid Wars, Book 1)It has been quite a while since I have read (or listened to) a Ben Bova book. I just finished listening to the unabridged version of The Precipice. This version was read by multiple readers and was throughly enjoyable. While the characters in the books were fairly stereotypical, they all combined to tell a good story. The conniving and intrigue were predictable, but that didn’t detract from the over experience.

One of the interesting aspects of the books is the destruction caused by the “Greenhouse Cliff”. The theory is that as the world progress and as we continue to ignore global warming we reach a “cliff” after which the world’s climate and ecosystem deteriorate precipitously to the point where it threatens the entire human race. This poses the question, “Is the ‘Greenhouse Cliff’ fiction, or fact?” 3.5 of 5 stars
