Reckless depletion of natural resources has put civilization in an obvious energy crisis, an imminent threat to the world. But who can save the world from dying? Author Phil Wallace Payne introduces readers to The Strivers, a technical team of geniuses funded by aged, altruistic billionaires, that clandestinely develop a way to harvest enormous, clean, and daily renewing energy from polar seas while avoiding bureaucracy and international scrutiny, to produce a general benefit for all human futures. In concept, their mission is simple; in delivery, it proves to be difficult and possibly tragic.
The Strivers tells a tense story of life, love, and labors undertaken by a brave few who understand energy of the oceans. From diverse backgrounds, talents are brought together by a shared mission; they ‘morph’ into a team, and relationships evolve that never would have flourished without the world’s energy crisis. They are inventors, but they are also human beings, looking for connection in an inhospitable place. With luck, the team will find a way to convert ocean energy into the next great fuel for mankind. If they fail, it will be a tragedy for humanity. Human life is in the hands of the strivers, who must harness the fury of the sea to save humanity. Will they succeed, or will the weakness of humanity make them fail?
Presenting an innovative approach to stir readers’ awareness to the current issues relating to environment and natural resources, The Strivers is an absolute scientific adventure that provides inspiration and hope to save humanity for centuries ahead.
