      For years, archeologist Dr. Bud Worthington has watched as his findings among the Acoma tribe of New Mexico are brushed aside in favor of glitzier breakthroughs in genetic research. Despite the skepticism of the rest of the scientific community, he’s sure he’s close to discovering “la copa sagrada,” an ancient relic that will prove beyond the shadow of a doubt the stark truth that science is denying: earth is failing. When a handful of Dr. Worthington’s graduate students stumble into the path of a covert government operation searching for an untapped energy source, the students threaten the outcome of a dangerous cat-and-mouse game for global dominance. An Earth Scorned carries readers from the ancient canyons of the American Southwest and the oil fields of Texas to the gleaming halls of the Pentagon, where the laws of ancient spirituality collide with the science and greed of world politics. Struggling with our ineptitude, Earth has begun its new destiny to survive, following natural laws. An Earth Scorned brings forth Amado Vallo, the leader of an ancient Pueblo culture, and others, to oppose a covert government operation whose mission is to defend powerful oil monopolies. A scientific discovery – an untapped energy source giving them global wealth and power – must be protected at all costs. Even to the death.
