Michelle Min Sterling on her debut novel Camp Zero
Natural gas, rare minerals and oil may be some of the most valuable resources in the world right now, but with climate change causing temperatures to rise dramatically on every continent, Canadian author Michelle Min Sterling began thinking about a natural resource that we take for granted: the cold. Her debut novel, Camp Zero takes place in an abandoned oil town in northern Alberta where American elites are building a climate refuge for the rich. Min Sterling joins guest host Robyn Bresnahan to talk about the book, and how a trip to visit her cousin working in the oil patch inspired the setting for her first eco-thriller.
