Roots in the Sand

by Peter Fahy | 01 February 2006
PAPERBACK
Category: Science Fiction
Synopsis
In the very near future, an aeons-old meteorite hurtles towards earth. But earth is unprepared. The natural resources it will need to harness in the aftermath have been depleted by centuries of abuse and pollution, and its people weakened by a hysterical media and increasingly arctic weather conditions in the northern hemisphere. There is no question that 'Phaeton' will cause devastation in one form or another - the question is how much and at what cost to human life? One Miles Poundmore - CEO of a vast, multi-million dollar conglomerate - is a shadowy, reclusive figure to the world at large. Yet in the face of this encroaching disaster, his quiet plans for a global grass roots initiative to address the potential famine, drought and further depletion of organic resources in the aftermath of Phaeton, may well make him something of a latter-day saviour. That is, if the human race survives Phaeton's impact.
