A sleepy American town is woken up in the middle of the night by horrifying noises. Terror-stricken citizens claim to have heard unexplained rumblings and there are reports of bright lights emanating from a nearby mountain.
The ills of society and the human weaknesses are highlighted in an exaggerated way in this novel, which is divided substantially in two parts: the first from tragicomic adventures and ramblings of mind of the protagonist, the second by a sci-fi escape from the world of work trying to live in an underwater world inhabited by mermaids. This book is dedicated to the men humble, not arrogant, but strong and sure of themselves.

The existence and urgency of global climate change is a matter of scientific consensus. Yet the global politics of climate change have been anything but consensual. In this context, a wave of global climate activism has emerged in the last decade in response to the perceived failure of the political negotiations.
Drawing on overÂ 100 interviews that have been conducted with key activists representing a total of 70 organizations, this book provides a unique comparative study of environmental movements in Denmark, Japan, Sweden, and the USA, analyzing their interaction with the international climate institutions of the United Nations, with national governments, and with currents in the global climate movement. It documents how and why the movement evolved between the Copenhagen Summit of 2009 and the Paris Summit of 2015, altering its strategies and tactics while attracting new actors to the issue area. Further, it demonstrates how the development of global environmental networks has increased contact between environmental movements in the Global North and those from the Global South, resulting in the establishment of 'climate justice' as a political cause and unifying frame for global climate activism.
