The Antagonist: Janine Viruet

Carbon Dioxide MoleculteWouldn’t you know it, as soon as I start writing the blog, I’m hit with a double whammy: flu and a screwed up back. I’ve been flat on my back and haven’t written a word. (Slight fib: I did manage to tinker with chapter one a bit.) I promise to do better as Carbon Run progresses.

The antagonist in my book is Deputy Inspector Janine Viruet, who works for an agency called the Bureau of Environmental Security. BES is charged with enforcing the Carbon Laws, a legal framework put in place to combat global warming by putting severe restrictions on carbon emissions in the wake of the general failure of humanity to voluntarily cut back on carbon usage. If you were emperor, what restrictions/bans would you place on carbon emissions? How far would they go?
