Description:
This is the way the world ends: A nuclear strike on a deep sea vent. The target was an ancient microbe -- voracious enough to drive the whole biosphere to extinction -- and a handful of amphibious humans called rifters who'd inadvertently released it from three billion years of solitary confinement. The resulting tsunami killed millions. It's not as through there was a choice: saving the world excuses almost any degree of collateral damage.
