Santa Fe Author Harvey Stone Launches Climate Change Thriller "Melting Down" at Collected Works on Earth Day

Environmental Thriller "Melting Down" By Harvey Stone Will Follow A Nuclear Terrorism Plot To Destroy The World's Glaciers

SANTA FE, NM--(Marketwire - Apr 13, 2011) - Santa Fe resident and environmental consultant Harvey Stone's environmental thriller about a terrorist plot to exploit the changing global climate will launch at Santa Fe's acclaimed locally-owned independent bookstore, Collected Works.

The book, Melting Down, is published by independent press The Way Things Are Publications and follows a global journey to uncover a conspiracy of Cold War Russians who seek to hold the world's glaciers hostage until the United States and other nations capitulate to their demands. Based upon real world scenarios, including the melting Greenland Ice Sheet, record-high world temperatures, and recent Russian claims on massive oil and gas reserves in the Arctic, Melting Down ( uses political intrigue, suspense, and fast-paced action as the backdrop to bring these issues forward.

Well-researched and scientifically vetted, Stone's narrative weaves into the plot consensual science and observed impacts that are directly tied to the changing climate. Additionally, it weaves in the triple bottom line approach that reflects his professional experience. This approach is increasingly used by governmental agencies, corporations and communities to address social, economic, and environmental problems simultaneously.

"Collected Works is the perfect place to launch a socially conscious, genre-bending book like Melting Down," said Jennifer Havenner, director of publishing for The Way Things are Publications. "We are thrilled to partner with such a hallmark in the independent publishing world."

Collected Works will host an event on Earth Day, April 22, 2011 at 6 PM to launch Melting Down. Author Harvey Stone will be present for a reading, signing, and interview that touches upon the current and relevant topics discussed in the book.

Melting Down is currently available for pre-order and after April 22, 2011 will be available in all major U.S. bookstores, direct via the publisher's website and online.
