    1. What if you had to save the planet? Not next century, not next decade, but now. What would you do? How far would you go?A small environmental group, funded by a wealthy actor, is threatened by losing all their funding unless they do something NOW to stop global warming, so the actor's beachhouse doesn't slide into the ocean. There's only one plan that would work - but is it worth it?GREENSWORD (subtitled "A Tale of Extreme Global Warming") explores this kind of fanaticism in a darkly funny - and [...]

    2. GREENSWORD, a novel by Donald Bingle is one of those stories that works on so many levels. First of all, you hope to god it will never come true.

Bingle examines the nature of the modern American thinking about how to solve problems today. You go for the quick s [...]

    3. I found this book when researching for my list of global warming fiction books I recently started at my blog:k.lenzme/LB/?p=9415This belongs in the category of "books that propose a solution" in that list.Let's list things I liked about this book first.Bingle makes the three activists nuking Seattle look very much like real persons, with a lot of inner conflict. In the first half of the book, the reader doesn't know yet of their large-scale crime. Bingle manages to create sympathy for the group. [...]

    5. I haven't listed any rating, since this is my own book, but I hope you enjoy this darkly humorous eco-thriller that skewers extremists on both sides of the global warming debate.

    6. I must have read a different book, but I didn't like this one at all. It was supposed to be funny--and it wasn't. On top of it, I didn't like any of the characters which doesn't do much for me.--Leisa

    7. It was pretty good, could see a lot of it happening. The end was fast and a little anticlimatic.

    8. Technically, I didn't finish the book. I gave up about page 86 due to a lack of plot and being bored by the characters. It would be interesting to read/watch the watch story as the screenplay it was originally supposed to be.
