EARTH 1 Return
It is the year 2223. A ship flies over what used to be New
York harbor. An eerie abandoned city is now flooded. The
statue of Liberty, still visible. No humans can be found.
Horrible giant worms attack the visitors when they land on
the only remaining building above water, Manhattan College.
High on a hill, is still visible to the north of the Statue
of Liberty. In a laboratory, they find a robot named Rebekka who holds a
recording of the planet’s history.
Rebekka, the scribe, tells the visitors the story of how the
domino effect of global warming and the resulting wars for
water and resources, led to the devastation caused by a
series of local atomic wars. The radioactivity and pollution
led to the destruction of the environment on Earth One. By 2050 there’s mass starvation and lack of potable water.
Riots are occurring everywhere as survivors fight for the
remaining food and drinkable water. The military all over the world called, Fiefs, has taken
command and built strongholds called Fiefdoms. They
distribute the remaining food and water to the world
populace. By 2054, scientists discover means to convert
human waste into food and water capsules. Rebekka describes the attempts of three brave people of 2100
to save the earth – Dr. Alex Mendez, a professor of 20th
century history, Dr. Jack Lee, Director of a Physics
Laboratory, and Rebekka, the advanced robot. With new time travel technology, Alex and Rebekka return to
the year 2003 to warn scientists of the domino effect of
climate change and how it will change our future. They want
to tell the story to a very influential scientist, Dr. Peter
O’Day, to alter his negative opinion of global warming and
show them what the results will be.
2 The Battle
The battle of the robots and humans to overthrow the
tyranny of the fifths who control human population through
fear. Humans are living underground, and the world has
been enveloped in toxic clouds. Islands have
disappeared and the Fiefs now prevent men and women from
being together. Anyone who wants to have a child has to have
their permission. Pregnancy is punishable by death. Dr. Mendez and others work to save the earth from this
time of darkness.Available through all e-book channels and direct here as

Novels like these, based upon real fears, scientific or
political predictions or historic patterns, illuminate
our society and make effective critiques of it. As Isaac

"An exciting futuristic tale about the consequences of
global warming escalating into the destruction of our
resources. In order to save the earth, scientists from
the future travel back to the past to try to change the
minds of those who told the public that global warming
did not exist. A page-turner with thought provoking
information." Lidia LoPinto, Engineer. From the Author
In interviews with the media, author Kaplan said, "My
first thought after reviewing data regarding global
warming was to write a fantasy entertainment that would
attract readers from high school and beyond. They are
the future spokespersons for the environment.

better place for our grand, and great- grandchildren."

that schools and environmental groups will be interested in
A Chilling Warmth. So far, two universities have used this
book as part of their curriculum and have purchased lots at
a time for their classes. It is a very effective teaching
tool as well as entertainment. Now in electronic format,
this book will capture the attention of a new generation.
I can best
outline my life in the context of the recent books that I
have published. A book on global warming emphasizes the
danger of pollution based on my early training in science,
and particularly weather. My second book deals with
terrorism and my involvement with the military- Korea, and
after 9/11 my tour with the Coast Guard Aux. Murders at the
Xanadu which takes place in a cooperative building
encompasses my fifty year experience living in a cooperative
and my six years as a member of a Board of Directors and its
President. Other events in my life: 1. After discharge from
military service - 1951, I taught Science and English in
H.S. 2. From 1959 - 1987 I was an assistant Principal and
Principal until my retirement. 3. During those years, I was
also an instructor in English and Rhetoric at a local
college I write because I believe I have a message in each
of my books. I hope that I can continue to publish in order
that I can deliver my messages. Thank you.
