Summary
A story of a world in which energy shortages lead a group of Americans to devise a radical solution, for their own gain, which puts the whole earth at risk. The Gun Club of Baltimore once used a giant cannon to send a spacecraft to the moon. Now, the gun is brought into use again to achieve an equally ambitious aim-- to tilt the earth's axis so that the North Pole is displaced to the tropics. The plotters believe there are limitless resources of coal at the North Pole and their cunning plan will allow them to exploit these resources to become rich
