In 2009, the sun emits a massive solar flare. American scientist Adrian Helmsley travels to a copper mine in India to meet his friend, Satnam, who has discovered that Earth’s core temperature is increasing rapidly. Adrian returns to Washington D.C. and submits a report to the Chief of Staff, Carl Anheuser, who immediately takes him to see US President Thomas Wilson. In 2010, Wilson tells other heads of state and heads of government the situation at that year’s G8 summit and billionaires all over the world buy plane tickets for EUR 1 billion apiece. In 2011, the original version of the Mona Lisa at the Louvre in Paris is replaced with a replica and is sealed away to keep it safe from the impending disaster.
The Making Of
The story jumps ahead to the summer of 2012. Jackson Curtis is a divorced father who works as a limousine driver and writer. His ex-wife Kate and their children Noah and Lily live with her new boyfriend, plastic surgeon Gordon. Jackson takes Noah and Lily on a camping trip to Yellowstone so Kate and Gordon have enough time with each other. He then meets Charlie Frost, who hosts a radio segment that addresses the Mayans’ prediction. Enormous cracks soon develop along the San Andreas Fault in California and disruptive earthquakes occur in the San Francisco Bay area. Despite government assurances that all is fine, Jackson grows suspicious.
