From a reader:
My son is a science journalist for SCIENCE magazine [AAAS, Washington DC] and is doing some research [for one of his writing projects] that involves current  scientific discussions of how we might modify the climate to offset global warming.
Because of a hand injury, he's asked me to do some Internet research. He's looking for fiction books written in the past 20 years that involve "science fiction" attempts to modify climate [or weather] that perhaps have something go wrong, some unexpected consequences.
Do you know of any such titles?
I've already found and ordered these used books for him:
1) Forty Signs of Rain by Robinson, Kim Stanley
2) Fifty Degrees Below by Robinson, Kim Stanley
3) Sixty Days and Counting by Robinson, Kim Stanley
4) Earth Winter by Moran, Richard
5) Ice! by Arnold Federbush
6) Mother of Storms by Barnes, John

Earth by David Brin.
The Ice People by Maggie Gee; I haven't read this one though.
There is also another novel called The Ice People, by Rene Barjavel that is really beautiful but I read it 30 some odd years ago so I don't remember if it had any climate change in its plot.
