Strange phenomena are taking place all over the world. Official explanations are guarded and contradictory. However, two ‘Daily Express’ journalists, Stenning and science correspondent Bill Maguire, discover that the climatic upheavals began after an American nuclear test and a similar Russian explosion that have caused the shifting of the orbit of the Earth and its approach to the sun.
