I p 243 (cI-46)
Research scientists will be investigating the powers associated with
the various energy fields of the earth. They'll try to harness the
powers for different purposes, including warfare. When they begin
experiments, in an area near the North Sea they will accidentally
rupture one of the earth's fields so that a beam of energy will shoot
out into space and draw a steady stream of meteorites to earth. They
will continue to rain down until the scientists can repair the
damage. Doing so will cause an earthquake from built up stress. The
research will be a secret government project. To the world at large
this will appear to be a natural phenomenon and will be recorded as
such in future history books, because the government will keep the
project concealed even after the accident.
