Adventures in Electricity - Lightning Rod
How far would you go to save your world from extinction? What would you sacrifice? Your material wealth, your reputation, maybe even your life? What is your world worth to you?
To save the Earth, Kanto Ibrahin has sacrificed it all. In a future where centuries of abuse has destroyed the planet's environment, Earth has been abandoned by humanity. With her atmosphere nearly unbreathable, and sunlight unable to penetrate the dust-filled air, nothing grows or lives on the surface as smog storms race across the dried out basins of her once deep lakes and seas.
Formerly an up and coming terraformer, Kanto has been ostracized by those he called friends and colleagues after returning to their abandoned home world in a last ditch attempt to save her. He gave up everything to do so, betting on an untested technology to save Earth where thousands before have failed. And now, he's down to his last tank of oxygen and his last battery cell as he prepares to try and get his tech working for the last time, or die in the attempt.
