ASTA AND TONY MAY HAVE THOUGHT
IN SUMMER 1939
Lindskog had only ten minutes for her lunch break at mobile phone giant
Ericsson’s canteen in Stockholm. And the soup was too hot. She stirred
the soup with the spoon. Her thoughts drifted to the looming war in the
hope that British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain could persuade Adolph
Hitler not to make war. If not, how would the future be for little Eric
and sweet Signe, her children of four and two? And the spoon moved quickly.
“Calm down”, she ordered herself, “ it will not come to the worst”.
Realizing that the soup was suddenly too cold, her mind jumped: “Sweden
will hardly see a mild winter if navies at war churn and turn the Baltic
Sea about as I just did with the soup.” The war started within a few
weeks and all countries around the Baltic Sea experienced the coldest
winter in more than 100 years.
Blair was sure that Neville Chamberlain’s persuasion policy was bound to
fail when naval vessels of the Deutsche Kriegsmarine took position in the
North Atlantic, in August 1939. He felt it was time to present his yet
strongest belief, “that there is no bigger long-term question for the
global community than the threat of climate change”. He hitchhiked to
Munich but none of the leading Nazi gave him the chance to express his
concern on global climate matters. No one wanted to listen to an anonymous
young man. Hitler wanted a war and started it on 1st September 1939, which
caused climate to shift the course immediately. Our earth cooled down for
late summer 1939, Asta and Tony were fiction but the climate changes
caused by war at sea were very real, as the book will explain in great
