In 2009, American geologist Adrian Helmsley learns from a colleague, Dr. Satnam Tsurtuani, at an underground copper mine in India thatneutrinos

from a massive solar flare are acting as microwave radiation, causing the temperature of the Earth's core to increase rapidly. Adrian informs White

House Chief of Staff Carl Anheuser and US President Thomas Wilson that this will trigger a catastrophic chain of natural disasters. At the G8 summit

in 2010, other heads of state and heads of government are made aware of the situation. They begin a massive, secret project intended to ensure the

survival of humanity. Approximately 400,000 people are chosen to board a series of ships (called arks) to be constructed in the Himalayas. The

majority of tickets aboard the ships are reserved for heads of state, government officials and selected individuals chosen for their skills, while

additional funding for the project is raised by selling tickets to the private sector at the price of 1 billion euros per person.
