A collapse of this marine ice sheet will cause all oceans to rise at least four meters and large portions of Americas coastal areas, including major metropolitan regions, will need to be evacuated. The government implements a top secret plan long ago developed for this contingency and takes action to deal with the crisis, but radical environmentalists decide to take matters into their own hands and Holmes is soon caught up in the conflict.
