Tiger & Cloud
By genetic engineering, a group of scientists have developed a synthetic, gaseous fuel, called "Biologically Altered Natural Gas", reffed to as 'BANG'. To achieve their goal, they manipulated the genetic code of a bacterium called 'Escherichia Coil, a germ widely distributed on the planet. After some time, the genetically altered germs escaped from the production sites and induced the same genetic changes in the wild forms of the same bacterium. A runaway production of BANG ensures, intoxicating the atmosphere around the earth up to an altitude of five to seven thousand feet. To stem the tide of climatic refugees from India and incursions of Chinese troops from the North the elite 'Tiger' troops are mobilized.
