My Cassandra Dilemma series addresses environmental collapse. In ancient mythology Cassandra was gifted by the gods the ability to see the future and to warn of impending disaster, but she was simultaneously cursed by the fact that no one believed her. In climate science, Cassandra Dilemma refers to the decades of climate catastrophe warnings, yet many people still disbelieve environmentalists.
