In the early twenty-first century, a former U.S.senator, who has become known as the Oracle, brings to the world's attention some incredible knowledge about man's alarming contribution to the troubling issue of global warming. He predicts a dire and catastrophic climate change that will occur much sooner than anyone thought.
The Oracle, in conjunction with renowned Princeton science professor Richard Compton, convinces the president of the United States that something drastic must be done to counteract the extreme weather that will devastate many areas of the United States. Under the firm direction of his powerful chief-of-staff, the president creates a Master Plan that calls for relocating 300 million people to a safe area. Strict sanctions will eliminate the burning of fossil fuels, and New America goes green.
Meanwhile, talented chemical engineers Michael Reynolds and Rose Haines discover new facts about the vagaries of climate change, learn more about the human natures of the American people, and wonder at the alarming turbulence in the outside world. It could turn out that the Master Plan may not have been enough to save the American people.
Two disillusioned zealots plot to end world violence once and for all, and render America powerless ... and perhaps lifeless. The date is 9/11 -- September 11th, 2021. Their first weapon is a nuclear electromagnetic pulse bomb, which when exploded high in the atmosphere over the middle of the United States, disrupts and shuts down all radio, TV, cell phone, internet, and satellite communictions, while the pulse from the nuclear force runs through the electrical ground grid and destroys transformers and connectors. Their second weapon is the release of a massive quantity of the Ebola virus, genetically-modified to spread airborne and fortified to kill its infected victims within three days. It is up to the brilliant engineer/scientist Michael Reynolds to come up with an answer in time to foil the devastating scheme.
