NOVEL SENDS UP CLIMATE ACTION

Animal Farm 2 is a fiction story by Martin Knox, a sequel to Animal Farm by George Orwell (1945). It updates up to modern times: energy geopolitics, climate change and animal liberation. The animals live on an island, Caruba, near the Democratic Union, but are enslaved by pigs who rule with ruthless autocratic leaders, parodying presidents of the Social Republic, culminating in Dimitri, who wants to restore their empire. When climate concerns stop the animals mining coal, their only income, they learn climate science in night classes, gaining a new and different understanding of the issues. Will the animals accept the shutting down of Caruba’s coal-fired power station and cessation of coal export? Will they challenge the pigs’ leadership? This is a humorous book that showcases the author’s technical understanding of the basic climate science issues, which he presents with engineering accuracy and a teacher’s clarity. It is a satirical novel story that is always entertaining.
