Synopsis: With climate change threatening the entire planet, "The Man Who Made it Rain" is a fable our time and a warning signal about our future. Journalist Michael McCarthy weaves together a narrative of real life events that occurred during an unrelenting drought in 1976-77 in Marin County, California. He then jumps ahead to the present day when global climate change is becoming harsh reality, and projects forward to a fictional future when weather-related disasters create havoc around the globe. As the past, present and future come together in a triple climax, the reader gets a horrifying glimpse of what happens when the world runs out of water.
