Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Review: 2020.103 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: It’s a fairly realistic description of the sort of geo-engineering measures that might be used to cool the planet if we can’t control CO₂ emissions.

Con: It’s a sequence of infodumps. There’s no plot to speak of, and the result is really dull.
