It is just horrible. I'm 57. I returned to school at a local community college (Winston Salem, NC). The newer generation around me at the school seems to be unaware and/or unconcerned about the many critical issues facing the world --and this country-- today.
Okay... so, 7 years into the future another round of fires has begun in the north except this time the Arctic Ocean has now warmed up a few degrees centigrade. A gigantic cloud of methane bubbles out of that ocean and is being fed even more by melted permafrost south of the ocean. Climate change has, as in recent years, caused winds to blow south out of the Arctic and thereby stretching the gigantic methane cloud south over the permafrost and eventually right into a massive forest fire. The fire ignites the methane cloud. The sky lights up with an horrendous fire like the world has never seen since it was first formed. The fire is of such magnitude that it sucks up half the world's oxygen in a matter of hours and burns such a gaping hole through the layers of atmosphere that it spews air right through into space at an incredible rate. Having been worried about pollution and starvation with some new efforts towards solutions, the human race suffocates to death.
I wonder if something like that is possible.
