Sea Change by Nancy Kress

The novel “Sea Change” by Nancy Kress was published for the first time in 2020.

Renata Black uses the alias Caroline Denton when she works for the Org, a underground organization that carries out genetic research to create plants better suited to the new climate situation of 2032. Members of the Org are violating the ban on genetic engineering and as a result, are considered terrorists by all American government agencies.

An unexpected event is always viewed with suspicion by Org members because there can never be too many precautions. Renata/Caroline knows only a few members of the Org precisely to limit the risks and yet it can happen that someone is discovered and arrested. Despite this, the Org tries to save humanity.
