Robinson, Kim Stanley  
Capital #1 / #2 / #3: Green Earth: Forty Signs of Rain / Fifty Degrees Below / Sixty Days and Counting
Three near-future ecothrillers, revised for this edition.

Forty Signs of Rain: As US Senate environmental staffer Charlie Quibler struggles to get a skeptical administration to take action on global warming, his wife Anna addresses the looming crisis in her work at the National Science Foundation. A proposal has come in, a revolutionary process that could solve the problem. But when a race to control the new technology begins, the stakes get even higher. As Charlie and Anna fight to align the forces of nature with the march of technology, fate puts an unusual twist on their efforts, placing them at the heart of an unavoidable storm.

Fifty Degrees Below: When the storm got bad, Frank Vanderwal was in his office at the National Science Foundation. When it was over, large chunks of San Diego had eroded into the sea, and Washington, DC, was underwater. And now the world is looking to Frank and his colleagues to fix it. But a more extreme climate change looms: the melting polar ice caps are shutting down the warm Gulf Stream, and Ice Age conditions could return. And the last time that happened, it took just three years to start.

Sixty Days and Counting: The world's climate is far on its way to irreversible change. But US President-elect Phil Chase doesn't intend to give up without a fight. A maverick in every sense of the word, Chase starts organizing an ambitious plan to save the world from disaster, and assembling a team of top scientists and advisers to implement it - including Charlie Quibler and Frank Vanderwal.
