A Recently Published Book

"Tribes of the Orange Sun," published in November, 2001,
looks at Earth two hundred years in the future. Population
has grown to 24 billion. Science and technology has kept
up with this over population (fed the people) and struggled
with the environmental problems - but human lifestyles
have changed dramatically. (Note that growth to 24 billion
in 200 years requires a slowing of the current growth rate
- to a doubling in 100 years instead of 40 years).

This most compelling among science fiction books also
assumes that science and technology has developed the means
to send large numbers of people to other solar system(s).

   
       SYNOPSIS, "Tribes of the Orange Sun"

    Future scientists, struggling with over population and
    environmental problems, devise an ambitious plan to
    manage further population growth. Earth Government 
    hastily implements the new plan for space colonization; 
    the only alternative, forced control of the population,
    is not politically attractive.

    Adam Hampton, the newest member of the population
    project's organizing team, objects to an excessively
    optimistic use of old and some very new technologies.
    He suspects that the plan is fundamentally flawed,
    that the lives of the many young volunteers are at
    risk. But, in the beginning, he cannot point to anything
    specific. He can only watch and wait while three of his 
    best friends - and millions of others - begin what they 
    believe will be a great adventure and a new life.

    The eager volunteers reach their destination, a faraway 
    earthlike planet, but events don't go as planned. They 
    must soon fight for bare survival against an ancient 
    menace - a menace that had plagued growing populations,
    man and animal alike, since life on Earth first began.
   

Is this a story about a new planet? Or is it really about
our own home planet? Read "Tribes of the Orange Sun."

The science fiction books "Tribes of the Orange Sun" and its soon to be published sequel "Pale Yellow Sun" look at space colonization as a tentative solution to human over population and environmental problems.
