The race for limitless energy takes a dramatic turn. The International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER), under construction in France, aims to replicate the sun’s helium fusion process using a Tokamak. However, the project faces significant delays.

Amidst these delays, a French start-up achieves a ground breaking feat by successfully fusing hydrogen and solar heat. This innovation leads to the creation of Hysoplasm, or HSP – a cheap, abundant and sustainable energy source.

But this development doesn’t sit well with those invested in traditional energy sectors. Key players in the Oil, Gas and Finance Industries in Brussels are alarmed. To counter this emerging threat, they turn to Chris Towers, a formidable and unscrupulous lobbyist. Towers finds himself in a clandestine meeting with EU Commissioner Manuel Rojas, responsible for Climate Action and Energy Union, in an obscure café in Brussels.

This is a story about the high-stakes world of energy politics, where technological breakthroughs clash with entrenched interests, whilst the future of global energy is at play.

‘Which interests stand in the way of real climate solutions? This eco-thriller tells a story of the fight of a start-up against the fossil industry. It introduces HSP as an abundant, renewable energy for a cleaner future.’ Pim van Galen, journalist at Dutch Public Television.

‘A fascinating and well-timed story.’ Ton van Uffel, energy and chemistry expert.

‘This book convinces with the sincerity of the plot and the richness of the details. It deserves a wider audience than just environmental geeks. Captive reading.’ Jochem Visser, lawyer.

‘Fighting injustice is tempting and honourable but not easy.’ Roberto Bastida Caracuel, port development manager.

Van Campen is concerned with human and non-human life, the environment and social cohesion. Having travelled the world, he physically experienced and survived an Exocet attack in Iran, worked under military protection in Angola during the civil war fought over diamonds and oil, witnessed the chaos of Kinshasa, walked the dirty streets of Lagos and obeyed orders to stay indoors during curfew in Abidjan when the first civil war started. He understands that economic interests will never allow democratic consultation by the people. Through this story, he offers a scientifically sound solution to end the Congo conflict over mineral resources.
