Fed by sewage dumping into the ocean off the east coast of the United States, the Aclinic Network of ducts and mini-islands expands towards the Statue of Liberty, Atlantic City, and Disney World.
Simultaneously, sewage dumping off the coasts of Europe and Asia causes the Aclinic Network to expand towards the Eiffel Tower, London Bridge, Venice, and Hong Kong, China, and Japan.
INT. TELEVISION BROADCASTING STUDIO - NIGHT
Last minute changes are made to accommodate DR. JAKE EASTMAN, a noted and respected Geophysicist, accompanied by his wife, ANNE, an Oceanographer.
But Jake, aren't we risking panic?
We've got to try.
The Engineer signals to the News Anchor.
We interrupt our regular broadcast for a
special communication from Dr. Jake Eastman.
The Engineer signals to Jake.
I've been working with my wife and dozens of
colleagues in uncovering the planet-threatening,
Its heart, the Aclinic Island is violently tremoring.
We must stop major dumping and polluting to
prevent possible eruption.
The ramifications of its eruption would be
devastating to life as we know it. I urge everyone
to do whatever possible. Thank you.
After exiting the studio,
EXT. ACLINIC ISLAND - DAY
RUMBLINGS grow deafening and steady.
INT. WEATHER MODIFICATION CENTER - DAY
Meeting with its Director,
My colleagues have produced a biodegradeable
solution which can dissolve the Aclinic Line.
We need your help in administering it
Although cloud seeding has been around since
the forties, there are no guarantees, Dr. Eastman.
It's our only hope in ridding the network.
We can use jets to drop the solution into the clouds.
Hopefully, this will encourage precipitation of the
solution to fall onto the targeted areas.
We'll start immediately.
EXT. SKY - NIGHT
Jets fly overhead, cloud seeding the solution over the network worldwide.
EXT. ACLINIC ISLAND - NIGHT
As a convoy approaches the island, ooze spews relentlessly as the island shrinks, exponentially. Jake SHRIEKS his jeep to a sudden stop, flooding, threatening the convoy.
As he notes nearby trees, he grabs hold of a low branch and climbs.
The rest of the convoy join him, some falling into the ooze. Suddenly, precipitation causes a dense fog. Nothing, nor anyone can be seen.
Is everyone all right?
My clothes are disappearing.
It's the solution. It'll dissolve all
man-made chemicals. I told you
to wear cotton.
When the fog lifts,
INT. CHOPPER - NIGHT
A tree full of naked humans...
that's a first.
Jake examines the expanse of clear, open land; the Aclinic Island gone.
Looks like we may have been given
a second chance. Let's pray we've
learned our lesson.
FADE TO BLACK
