An Extinction Level Event Threatens Humanity In Powerful New Thriller
New York, NY, November 24, 2018 ― The countdown is on. In less than 48 hours, the Earth will be struck by two back-to-back, catastrophic solar storms. The second is a Coronal Proton Ejection (CPE) that threatens to kill all life on earth. These explosions will also severely damage the world’s electrical/electronic infrastructure. In a preemptive move to avoid permanent damage, global communications are shut down; hospital emergency generators are disconnected; the entire internet, media broadcasting, and cell phone systems are turned off. A full-scale plan is in place to ensure survival after the CPE until something far more frightening is discovered by NASA’s solar observation teams. The planet has 48 hours to prepare for this cataclysm. How will humanity react to the threat?
