Love in the Time of Climate Change



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.
Love in the Time of Climate Change, a Cli-Fi was a Foreword Reviews 2014 IndieFAB Gold Medal winner for Humor.

“Love in the Time of Climate Change” has a lot of charm. Casey and Jesse are man-children in the style of a Judd Apatow film. Immature and obsessed with sex, they are basically innocent babes — and they fight passionately for a better earth.”

Tinky Weisblat, Greenfield Recorder

“It’s a climate change fiction novel that’s kind of like an Adam Sandler or Will Ferrell romantic comedy but starring Seth Rogan and Jennifer Lawrence. Set on a community college campus, it has a bit of a feel of The Absent-Minded Professor or even The Nutty Professor for the cli-fi set…This is a charming little book, a bit silly but entertaining in its goofiness. A recommended light read that many public libraries might find useful to add to their collections and even perhaps some academic libraries with leisure reading collections.”

John Dupuis, Confessions of a Science Librarian


“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, Eco-fiction.com


“One of my pet peeves about environmental activists and climate change activists in particular is their shriveled sense of humor. Not all, mind you, but most beat a constant drum of doom and gloom that makes me want to jump off a cliff…That’s why it’s refreshing to read a story that takes a lighter view of a serious subject. Love in the Time of Climate Change, the first novel by Brian Adams, also makes the case that even the end of the world can spark a romance…Much of Adams’ humor hits the mark. Love in the Time of Climate Change is a pleasant, and often funny, read.”
