The Day the Earth Caught Fire plot

"The INCREDIBLE becomes Real! The IMPOSSIBLE becomes Fact! The UNBELIEVABLE becomes True!"

The earth is inexplicably ravaged by various natural disasters, which are the result of sudden climate changes. Europe is burdened by an unbearable tropical heat, resulting in water scarcity. Through the indiscretion of a meteorological officer, Peter Stenning, the scientific editor of a major London newspaper, learns the truth of the matter: the US and the Soviet Union were simultaneously conducting nuclear tests at the South Pole. As a result, the Earth has been thrown out of orbit and is approaching dangerously close to the sun.
