Description - Stark by Ben Elton
Stark is a secret consortium with more money than God, and the social conscience of a dog on a croquet lawn. What's more, it knows the Earth is dying. Deep in Western Australia where the Aboriginals used to milk the trees, a planet-sized plot is taking shape. Some green freaks pick up the scent- a pommie poseur; a brain-fried Vietnam vet; Aboriginals who have lost their land...not much against a conspiracy that controls society. But EcoAction isn't in society- it just lives in the same place, along with the cockroaches. f you're facing the richest and most disgusting scheme in history, you have to do more than stick up two fingers and say 'peace'.
