Meet Casey, a community college professor with OCD (Obsessive Climate Disorder).  While navigating the zaniness of teaching he leads a rag-tag bunch of climate activists, lusts after one of his students, and smokes a little too much pot.  Quirky, socially awkward and adolescent- acting, our climate change obsessed hero muddles his way through saving the world while desperately searching for true love.Teaching isn't easy with an incredibly hot woman in class, students either texting or comatose, condoms strewn everywhere, attack geese on field trips, and a dean who shows up at exactly the wrong moments. What's a guy to do?  Kidnap the neighbor's inflatable Halloween ghost?  Confront evangelicals and lesbian activists?  Channel Santa Claus's rage at the melting polar ice caps?  Shoplift at Walmart?  How about all of the above!  Who would have thought climate change could be so funny!  Actually, it really isn't, but Love in the Time of Climate Change, a romantic comedy about global warming, is guaranteed to keep you laughing.  Laughing and thinking.

Praise For Love in the Time of Climate Change

“Given a thumbs-up by Bill McKibben, this down-to-earth, humorous novel is about an awkward teacher-in-love who is trying to raise climate change awareness among his U.S. students. Hilariously written and non-apologetically didactic, this novel gets the message across without making light of a very serious issue.” — Mary Woodbury,
