Can reduction of greenhouse gases lead to FAMINE? Can we do without Nuclear Power? Can land sustain increasing population? Are we all doomed? You will find the answers in ÔeMaya.Õ A computer whiz kid created Bitsy, an Artificial Intelligence program to make a report on global warming. She copied her reasoning and comprehension ability to computer Guhu who managed the search engine and to computer Miki who ran the encyclopedia on the internet. These three intelligent byte-brains brought out the myths and the truths of environment change and climate control by interacting amongst them. eMaya was the netname of Bitsy who summarized the discussions and wrote out emails on various aspects of climate control. Though eMaya is science fiction, the facts about the Earth are real and the conclusions are valid. The book explains difficult concepts of environment and climate change in very simple and lucid way. It answers questions about global warming which you are afraid to ask. eMaya is net-active.

She dramatizes an impending famine situation created with the falling stocks of food to project the importance of carbon dioxide in food production. She will enlighten you about the wonderful design of the earth with its carbon cycle, water cycle and thermal balance. You will be wiser to what is essentially needed to deal with problems of power, food, and global warming. And donÕt you want to know what the World will be like in 2040?
