In this provocative action-adventure sequel to “3 Degrees: An Apocalyptic Incident,” astrophysicist Dr. William Belcher informs the president of the United States that he’s discovered a mega-asteroid headed for the East Coast of the United States.
When it mercifully tweaks 3 degrees, it slams into Greenland, which spares millions but still touches off a series of catastrophic worldwide events as the glaciers slide into the ocean and melt. Sea levels begin to rise, and massive populations are forced to migrate away from the coasts. Dr. Belcher, teamed with Col. Bradley Zimmer, begins to prepare their local compound of friends and family to withstand the total breakdown of U.S. society as we know it.
As water destroys America’s infrastructure and the country becomes more ruined than after the Civil War, the government relocates to Phoenix, Arizona. The former 50 states are reorganized into three regions under newly assigned governors. When Dr. Belcher is named governor of Region Two and Col. Zimmer becomes his general in charge of a new military, together they plan and lead the brilliant, successful beginnings of the Second Reconstruction of America.
