Synopsis: Many think water is a God-given right. Mother Nature has other plans. In the Man Who Made It Rain, author Michael McCarthy begins with a narrative of real life events that occured during the unrelenting drought in the 1970's in Marin County, California. He jumps ahead to the present day as global climate change becomes reality. The story then takes us to the future, where TV network news reports that the world's weather is going crazy: storms, floods, and thermometer popping high temperatures pummel the planet. High atop the Himalayas a giant glacial lake stands ready to burst its banks, wiping out everything in its path, including the son of the U.S. president on a mountaineering expedition. Based on a true story, The Man Who Made It Rain explores a frightening thought: what happens when the world runs out of water?
