BACK COVER COPY
SCIENCE FICTION / APOCALYPTIC & POST-APOCALYPTIC
A High-Action Adventure Story Based on Hard Science Possibilities of a Worst-Case
Environmental Catastrophe and Hard Science Principles Used to Try to Restore the Planet Back to Health
Project Ark is a science fiction novel that takes place nearly a century into the future. The environment on Earth has been devastated. Plants and animals are extinct. Earth’s remaining civilizations survive within five world domes. A hidden container, known as the ARK, containing the preserved DNA of thousands of plants and animals, can restore life to the planet. As conditions on the Earth deteriorate, Dr. Michael Costello must race against time to find this ARK and restore life to Earth.
“A Cautionary Tale”
“Project Ark is a cautionary tale and a worst-case scenario; a reminder we're not nearly as smart or forward thinking as we like to believe. I pray it won't come to this, but fiction can be a powerful motivator. Will our better angels prevail? Will our kids and grandchildren find the courage and conviction to clean up our mess and make a clean-energy economy non-negotiable?”
