Climate-change dystopia. The novel begins in a future that pretends it has solved the catastrophe brought on by climate-change. Rationing and other limits have been removed; technology has supposedly solved problems like pollution and waste disposal. All food is synthetic. But the ice that remains continues to melt and some of it is releasing massive amounts of methane. It is possible to buy a subscription to a service that protects the person from “all targeted messaging” (2).
