THE WARNING tells the amazing and unknown story of how the world’s most powerful intelligence service, the CIA, engaged in the controversial area of climate change and extreme weather events in the immediate aftermath of the Cold War and partnered with its erstwhile adversary, Russia’s main military intelligence organisation the GRU. A story full of high politics, intelligence yarns and awesome science ensued. Amid the gamut of human nature: mutual suspicions turning into unexpected friendships and a utopian vision underpinning high efforts to secure a better future for our World.
