The year is 2032, and the world is facing extinction due to what humanity has done to its own planet. All life on Earth – from ants to elephants, from tiny blades of grass to mighty oak trees – will cease within a matter of years unless climate change is reversed.

John Carter arrives on Earth, in human form, from his own distant planet, which can no longer support life. On a mission to save Earth, he meets Christine Jackson, a reporter for The Times and a high-profile climate change activist. The two fall in love and become inseparable.

But a major obstacle looms in the form of Clean Oil Global, an international company determined to prioritize profit over welfare, despite the devastating impact of fossil fuels. However, hope emerges with the rise of The Planet Earth Party, a brand-new political force in the UK that sweeps to power, decimating the tired old order of Conservatives and Labour.

The fight to save Planet Earth from extinction is on, and the enemy is us.

Dennis Apperly was born in Gloucester, England on December 12, 1945. He entered journalism in 1968 in South Africa as a sub-editor/reporter on the South African Press Association in Johannesburg. When he returned to the United Kingdom in early 1970, he embarked upon a career of journalism that lasted for more than 50 years, travelling all over the world in a variety of roles. He became launch editor of the Gloucester Express in 1985, when he ran the award-winning Aid Africa Campaign, himself escorting a lorryload of educational supplies to a remote community in Darfur, Sudan, during a civil war in that country. Dennis has worked for a number of newspapers, including the Bristol Evening Post and the Birmingham Post, and ended his journalistic career as a freelance crime reporter.

When he retired Dennis wrote nine fiction novels and one non-fiction, The Road to Umm Keddada. He has had Wasteground and Looking for Lady published, and the other works are awaiting publication. He has also written numerous poems and essays. Dennis has one son, Laurence and two grandchildren, Molly and Ezra.
