(From the publisher):
The Earth's ecosphere is running out of control. The seas are rising, crops are failing, humanity is dying.
The weather control satellites of the ERGIA Corporation are keeping the planet from total meltdown, but only just - and only for those countries that can pay. The rest of the world struggles for survival in a climatic chaos that worsens by the day.
Millions have died. Millions more have fled - but time, like space, is running out. As ERGIA hosts a prestigious opening ceremony for its moon-base command centre, seismic disruption on Earth suddenly increases exponentially. Massive earthquakes spawn mega-tsunamis and the world's volcanic mountain ranges start to erupt in an explosive chain reaction.
Trapped on the moon, visiting world leaders can only watch helplessly as a shroud of fire and ash obscures the Earth from view. For now they have escaped, but as their supplies dwindle the survivors realize they must return to Earth to save thir own lives. But how will they ever get home - and what are they likely to find there?
