More Description

"Even Without Gasoline this Novel Surges Right Along to a powerful conclusion about the dangers of reckless biotechnological research and the possibilities of American ingenuity in the midst of chaos and danger". -- "All Things Considered", National Public Radio

It's the Largest Oil Spill in History: a crashed supertanker in San Francisco Bay. Desperate to avert environmental damage -- and a PR disaster -- the multinational oil company releases an untested "designer microbe" to break up the spill.

An "oil-eating" microbe, designed to consume anything made of petrocarbons: oil, gasoline, synthetic fabrics, and of course plastic.

What the company didn't realize is that their microbe propagates through the air. But when every car in the Bay Area turns up with an empty gas tank, they begin to suspect something is terribly wrong.

And when, in just a few days, every piece of plastic in the world has dissolved, it's too late...

"A Real Winner...The authors' grasp of the science, the technology, and the political scene is unique". -- Dr. D. Allan Bromley, former Assistant to the President for Science and Technology
