Controversy surrounding climate change, environmental fanaticism, and political intrigue in a university setting make Stand! thrilling, current, informative, and alive.
Wes Carlyle, a chaired professor of environmental sciences, and his attractive research collaborator and graduate student, Karen Sterling, face off against a corrupt university president and a depraved dean who conspire to protect the president from charges of criminal and immoral conduct.
The dean threatens to file charges against Wes in the faculty senate on a bogus accusation that he had a sexual liaison with Karen if he fails to convince her not to pursue the president's dismissal.
With unswerving support from Wes' former student, the university's newly elected board chair, Wes and Karen help to oust the president and topple his crooked administration, thus bringing to a close an unsavory chapter in the university's otherwise proud history.
With the university in good hands, Wes and Karen focus their energy and attention on promoting their research findings challenging the global warming theory championed by the United Nations, political power seekers, naïve Hollywood celebrities, and environmental extremists. They encounter hostility at a meeting in Atlanta when Karen is physically attacked by an enviroterrorist.
