THE LAST CHEESEBURGER: The Warning

Prepare For What is Coming

The Last Cheeseburger
 THE WARNING
by 
Mother Nature
PART ONE

What follows is not for the faint of heart. This is going to be difficult to read. This content is most assuredly within the domain of God Consciousness. 

There is a long tradition of dire warnings coming from God. 

Okay, you might be a none God type person. There is NO such thing as God. Leave the superstition for the superstitious.

But what about just facts and figures and common sense? You okay with that?

Let's get started.

At this point in your species story it seems that the modern civilization so few of you enjoy will be a little moment of a few decades of your current method of measuring the passing of something you call 'time'.

Yes, at best you are in your last great few moments of your grand consumption of the very creature that is your host.

And you (homo sapiens) have not been here on my planet for very long. This chart gives you one very thin sliver of a white line to show you how long you've been around.

It has taken you very little time to become the threat you pose to what's left of what you were given to work with.

Well, you can always go and whine to Mother Nature about how it isn't your fault that your group consciousness hasn't been able to purify your species group karma.

Or you could always turn a blind eye to this report. Go about your business. The really bad times are still a few years away. Time enough to...maybe...get somewhere safe, uh, safer.

Build a survival deal. Like an underground shelter. Extensive. Expensive. With all the deluxe gear and supplies. You know, able to withstand a direct hit, a siege of years, please include all the survival scenarios.

But that takes MEGA bucks. Doesn't it?

Well maybe you can scale down and build a more modest version. And here it is:

Scroll to end of report: 
DETAILED CONSTRUCTION COST ESTIMATES
Basic Underground Survival Shelter/four people


Your species is a conflicted collective. 


You know that you will sooner than later cut down the last remaining tree. You will pave the last little bit of the wild and build another something or other.

Am I overestimating your willful ignorance?

The years that are coming are the years of the scourge. Your entire species will be culled most harshly. Few will be spared the coming wrath of your host. Mother Nature will turn on you and kill you dead.

But many of you will save Mother Nature the trouble. You will kill each other off. Yes. The coming years will bring much suffering to the most vulnerable. This great horror will see the carrion thrive on the flesh of dead people.

Most of you will live in days and nights of increasing ignorance and superstition. The loss of normal social bonds will bring out the worst in most of you. Part of this degradation will be driven by the loss of normal life.

This means the loss of reliable food supplies for those of you who enjoyed the year round abundance beaten out of your host. 

Yet mostly half of that abundance ended up in waste bins and compost and leaking pipes and badly maintained electrical grids and big huge engines taking just one person somewhere and the enslavement of poor countries, oh and the list goes on. Please do me a favor and finish the list.

Okay, you get the idea. None of what is coming was not obviously on its way. Right? You could hear the warning cries from the rooftops. A lot of you were too busy just trying to find something to eat and drink. And a lot of you were too busy being willfully stupid. 



But what about all the migrants we got showing up right now? Is that gonna get worse? it's already bad enough in most places.


Report on Migration Due to Ecosystem Failures (2024-2044)


Introduction

This report examines the projected migration patterns over the next 20 years due to local and regional ecosystem failures or complete collapse. 

The analysis considers the impacts of continuing high levels of consumption and emissions, with additional exacerbation as India mirrors China’s historic use of coal and gas-fired plants.

The report estimates migration flows based on these conditions, highlighting the largest numbers of people moving from specific regions to others.

1. South Asia to Southeast Asia

Origin:
- India 
With significant increases in pollution and greenhouse gas emissions due to continued reliance on coal and gas-fired plants, India faces severe ecosystem collapse, particularly in densely populated areas.

Destination:
- Bangladesh, Thailand, Malaysia
Southeast Asia, with relatively more stable ecosystems, will be a primary destination for Indian migrants seeking refuge from deteriorating conditions.

Estimates:
- Years 1-5: 10 million
- Years 6-10: 20 million
- Years 11-15: 30 million
- Years 16-20: 40 million

2. Sub-Saharan Africa to Northern Africa and Europe

Origin:
- Nigeria, Ethiopia, Somalia: 
Sub-Saharan African countries will experience intensified droughts, failed crops, and water shortages, driving mass migration.

Destination:
- Libya, Egypt, Italy, Spain: 
Migrants will initially head to Northern Africa, with a significant number continuing to Europe in search of better living conditions.

Estimates:
- Years 1-5: 15 million
- Years 6-10: 25 million
- Years 11-15: 40 million
- Years 16-20: 60 million

3. Central America to North America

Origin:
- Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador: 
Increasingly frequent and severe hurricanes, combined with agricultural collapse and water scarcity, will force people to migrate.

Destination:
- Mexico, United States: 
Migrants will move northward, seeking stability and opportunities in Mexico and the United States.

Estimates:
- Years 1-5: 5 million
- Years 6-10: 10 million
- Years 11-15: 20 million
- Years 16-20: 30 million

4. Middle East to Europe and Asia

Origin:
- Syria, Iraq, Yemen: 
Ongoing conflicts exacerbated by ecological collapse will push millions to migrate.

Destination:
- Turkey, Germany, Sweden: 
Europe remains a major destination, along with parts of Asia, for those fleeing the Middle East.

Estimates:
- Years 1-5: 8 million
- Years 6-10: 15 million
- Years 11-15: 25 million
- *ears 16-20: 35 million

5. Southeast Asia to Australia and New Zealand

Origin:
- Vietnam, Philippines, Indonesia: 
Rising sea levels, typhoons, and loss of arable land will drive migration from Southeast Asia.

Destination:
- Australia, New Zealand: 
These countries will become preferred destinations due to their relatively stable environments and economic opportunities.

Estimates:
- Years 1-5: 3 million
- Years 6-10: 6 million
- Years 11-15: 10 million
- Years 16-20: 15 million

Summary of Migration Flows

1. India to Southeast Asia: 
Total 100 million over 20 years.

2. Sub-Saharan Africa to Northern Africa and Europe: 
Total 140 million over 20 years.

3. Central America to North America: 
Total 65 million over 20 years.

4. Middle East to Europe and Asia: 
Total 83 million over 20 years.

5. Southeast Asia to Australia and New Zealand: 
Total 34 million over 20 years.

Conclusion

That is a whole lot of millions of people. And this probably is one of those low-ball estimates, too.

The projected migration due to local and regional ecosystem failures over the next 20 years is staggering, with hundreds of millions of people expected to move in search of better living conditions. 

The ongoing and exacerbated use of fossil fuels, particularly by India, will significantly contribute to this trend, underscoring the urgent need for global cooperation in addressing climate change and its impacts.

Migrant Tent City---Coming Soon

LET ME INSULT YOU.
There is something so very stupid in you. Like many species that are part of Mother Nature's past repetoire, you will have your most triumphant moment; the arc of your greatest ability to consume and destroy the very host you rely on to survive, let alone to prosper.

Prosper? 
Yes, but only for the few at the very top of your species hierarchy. People like you. The person who is reading this right now.

And the Ultra Elite Few, this few is/are devoted to the worship of the relative power of money. 

But what will money mean in the days that are coming?

The War Lord & Lady War


The arrival of the Age of the Warlord.


This will be during and after the fall of modern civilization.

As you lapse into the trance made by the obvious rebellion of Mother Nature...As you survive the first waves of slaughter brought by the culling, you can see clearly that all that nice stuff about being nice to your fellow human being was there to help people get along and maybe sometimes cooperate and solve problems and get stuff done, together.

Yeah. Those good old days. 

Gone.

Now the naked reality of massively polluted everything: air, water, soil, all the biosphere being fed the ingredients of the failing infrastructure your species made as it fouled its own nest.

Ultra-elite survival shelter fortress amidst a massively polluted environment

If you think the elite will build some very nice nests to live out the storm, you are bang on --- yes, of course many of the eilite will build impressive domains that will keep them relatively prosperous and well fed and protected and so on.


Until each one of the elite and their kin are murdered or enslaved. Often this will be the work of the opportunistic. In these dark days, it will be impossible for the elite to know a sense of trust in any servant.



As the pollution worsens and the storms get larger and last longer, the cycle of natural chaos increases. Whatever forests that have not burned are killed by drought. And whatever land once fertile and green, now shriveled and dead.

The birds are mostly all gone. And so too most of all species. Except for the rats and the carrion. But even they are dying off as the toxic biosphere continues the mission of killing off all the humans. 

Except for a few. They will be the gibbering idiots who know nothing and must start over. They will have new legends. They will try and explain the strange relics and remains of the heights of your current modern civilization.

The ruins of your great cities. Oh how fast they will all become really very sad. And as time marches on and Mother Nature slowly digests the presence of your species, your infrastructure, the few of you who survive will live to age thirty or so. That will be your life expectancy.



Yes, in time The End will have come and gone. The few grunting savages will live as biosphere experiments gone horribly wrong. The genetics of the future must include the deviations caused by your poisoned biosphere.

In time Mother Nature will have filtered out all traces of your species civilization. The planet will recycle the cities and towns. The machines will all be digested by Mother Nature. All the stuff will simply vanish. 

As millions of years come and go, the planet will swallow all traces of your ever even being here. Except for some curious ice samples and geological anamolies left for future visitors from the stars.

Or perhaps a new reboot of your species. Perhaps a few of you will rise once again from the brink of complete extinction. 

Perhaps some will survive.

And another version of human civilization can begin...again.

The most affected industries include the chemical, oil, nuclear power, and weapons industries, with catastrophic outcomes for both the environment and human society. 

Proactive measures are crucial to mitigate these risks and protect both ecological and human health.

One quick question: Do you think that you (homo sapiens) will take enough crucial proactive measures in time to prevent what is already happening?

Glimpse of life 20 years after.

Okay. So what about global eco system collapse?


That sound like fun?
Yeah.

Nailing down the exact odds of an ecosystem collapse is tough because nature's systems are intricate and interconnected. 

But here's the brutal truth: if we keep going the way we are, massive ecological disasters could hit us hard in just a few decades. 

Here’s what’s driving us toward the edge:

Factors Leading to Ecosystem Collapse


1. Climate Change

   - Global Warming: 
Rising temperatures can disrupt weather patterns, leading to more extreme and unpredictable weather events.

   - Ocean Acidification: 
Increased CO2 levels cause ocean acidification, which can harm marine life, especially coral reefs and shellfish.

   - Sea Level Rise: 
Melting ice caps and glaciers contribute to rising sea levels, threatening coastal ecosystems and human settlements.

2. Biodiversity Loss

   - Habitat Destruction: 
Deforestation, urbanization, and agriculture reduce natural habitats, leading to species extinction.

   - Overexploitation: 
Overfishing, hunting, and poaching diminish populations of various species, disrupting ecological balance.

   - Pollution: 
Air, water, and soil pollution from industrial activities, agriculture, and waste disposal harm wildlife and ecosystems.



3. Pollution

   - Plastic Waste: 
Plastic pollution in oceans and landfills poses severe risks to wildlife and human health.

   - Chemical Contaminants: 
Pesticides, heavy metals, and other pollutants can cause long-term damage to ecosystems and human health.

4. Resource Depletion:

   - Water Scarcity: 
Overuse and contamination of freshwater resources lead to water shortages, affecting both human and ecological health.

   - Soil Degradation: 
Intensive agriculture, deforestation, and improper land management lead to soil erosion, reducing agricultural productivity and ecosystem health.

5. Invasive Species

   - Introduction of Non-native Species: 
Invasive species can outcompete, prey on, or bring diseases to native species, disrupting ecosystems.

The boat = all homo sapiens.
The waterfall = consequence of ignoring warnings.
The consequences = species extinction/near extinction.

Recipe for Disaster


1. Unchecked Greenhouse Gas Emissions: 
Continued reliance on fossil fuels without significant mitigation efforts leads to accelerating climate change.

2. Deforestation and Habitat Destruction: 
Rapid deforestation for agriculture and urban development destroys critical habitats.

3. Pollution and Waste: 
Persistent pollution from industrial activities, plastic waste, and chemical runoff degrade ecosystems.

4. Overpopulation and Overconsumption: 
Increasing human population and unsustainable consumption patterns strain natural resources.

5. Weak Environmental Policies: 
Lack of strong regulations and enforcement allows destructive practices to continue unchecked.

6. Biodiversity Loss: 
Failure to protect endangered species and habitats accelerates biodiversity loss, weakening ecosystem resilience.

7. Global Political and Economic Instability: 
Inability to cooperate globally on environmental issues exacerbates the problem, leading to fragmented and insufficient responses.

Mitigation Strategies


This next bit is rather hopeful and wonderful. I really like all of it. And I will include a real magic pen with every order of the miracle spell I am selling, right from God!

Yes. You can have this same miracle spell, too. Plus, remember that magic pen, it is a REAL magic pen.

What does the Miracle Spell do?
It creates an exact replica copy of the planet you are on, right now, but with far fewer people. 

On this planet, you will have every convenience you could dream up, and each dish, made to order, just for you.

Yes. Your NEW miracle planet will have really cool ways of getting around. Like your very own Jet Car. For real.


 
You can fly over all the really poor people who will work cheap and that way you can make money. A lot of money, IF you do it right.

Your Miracle Planet comes fully equiped with poor people so you can help them to make you money. A lot of money.

That is what poor people are for: To make you a lot of money.

This is how we get the people to be our servants. Because we pay them money to do stuff that makes us money.

Or makes our lives ever so, much more, sooooo nice. Oh, yes. All the perks. All the goodies. All the toys.

So, this is hopeful, and IF it is all accomplished, there is some reason to give hope a chance.

But "The Warning" is all about being brutally realistic.
You read the next part and tell me if this hopeful to-do list is likely to be followed and accomplished.


1. Transition to Renewable Energy: 
Reducing reliance on fossil fuels by investing in solar, wind, and other renewable energy sources.

2. Conservation Efforts: 
Protecting natural habitats, restoring degraded ecosystems, and preserving biodiversity.

3. Sustainable Agriculture: 
Implementing practices that conserve soil, water, and biodiversity while ensuring food security.

4. Pollution Control: 
Enforcing regulations to reduce pollution, promoting recycling, and developing cleaner technologies.

5. Water Management: 
Adopting sustainable water use practices and improving water infrastructure.

6. Global Cooperation: 
Strengthening international agreements and cooperation to address environmental challenges collectively.

The probability of ecosystem collapse is influenced by how effectively humanity addresses these issues. If current trends persist without significant intervention, the risk of severe ecological disruption increases.

And that is why you need my Magic Pen. Because it is going to take a whole lot of REAL magic to save you.

The REAL Magic Pen


Put another way, here is a folksy, Socratic-style rewrite of the text.

Let's talk about how to NOT collapse the last bit of functioning global ecosystems.


Transition to Renewable Energy.
Have you ever wondered why we stick to fossil fuels when the sun and wind are right there, free for the taking? Imagine if we put our money into solar panels and wind turbines instead. Wouldn't it be something to power our homes without harming the earth?

IF you take action, starting right now, and you are focused, informed, and consistent, and take realistic action, you will be able to separate yourself from society and become largely self-sufficient.

And as you teach your young ones the skills necessary to survive and prepare to defend the stakehold against any force, and they learn how to build safe housing underground, deep inside the earth, all this begins to prepare the future for what is to come for your kin.

But right now, there is a chance you can help with the next subject. Yes, being very careful with what little Mother Nature we have not destroyed.

Conservation Efforts ---> YES, it takes EFFORT to conserve what you have left to destroy.


What if we took a moment to really think about the forests, rivers, and wildlife around us? 

Well, sucker, a moment just isn't going to cut it. IF you do NOT do a lot more than 'to really think about' Mother Nature, forests, waters, and all creatures that you have not yet murdered. 

(Mother Nature: She is the one who is Nature's Mother.)


BIG QUESTION.
What do you think?
By protecting natural habitats and restoring ecosystems, could we not preserve the beauty and balance of our world for our grandchildren?

Duh. Yeah. 
So why don't you do something?

You're gonna wish you had done something when you read what's coming next.

Here is something you can start doing, right now.

Coming Soon --- Global Ecosystem Collapse?

Sustainable Agriculture.

Do you know where your food comes from? What if farmers used methods that saved soil and water while ensuring there's enough food for everyone? Wouldn't it be better if our farming practices helped the planet rather than hurt it?

Duh. Yes. Of course.
But will you do anything about this?

IF you do NOT take action, then what happens next is very unpleasant, to say nothing of being extremely inconvenient for you when the snack aisle is depleted of all those yummy goodies.

And dip? Forget about it. Dip is...gone.
Say goodbye to...dip.

But IF you step up and committ, and take focused and meaningful action, well, then you are gonna be sending your kids' kids into the last gasp of what you know of as anything remotely close to normal.

Pollution Control.
Have you seen the impact of pollution on our air and water? What if we enforced stricter pollution laws, promoted recycling, and developed cleaner technologies? Could we breathe easier and drink cleaner water?

Water Management.
How often do we think about the water we use daily? What if we adopted better water use practices and improved our infrastructure? Could we ensure everyone has access to clean water without wasting this precious resource?

Global Cooperation.
Can any country solve these problems alone? What if nations worked together more closely, honoring international agreements and sharing solutions? Could we tackle these environmental challenges more effectively as a united world?

The fate of our ecosystems rests in our hands. If we ignore these issues, what kind of world are we leaving for the next generation? 

But if we act now, investing in solutions and working together, could we not create a better, more sustainable future for all?

Yes. Of course.

And if you don't fix the problem, this next part is for you to get a feeling for Total Global Ecosystem Collapse.

Okay, here is an outline of a twenty year slice of that ride.


And so what will life be like for the typical average American USA family, starting from Year One to Year Twenty of a global ecosystem collapse?


Year One: The Onset of Ecosystem Collapse

Environment

- Climate Extremes: 
Unpredictable weather patterns with more frequent and severe storms, floods, droughts, and heatwaves.

- Pollution Levels:
High levels of air and water pollution. Increased occurrence of smog and contaminated water supplies.

Human Society

- Health Issues: 
Respiratory and waterborne diseases rise due to pollution. Increased cases of heat-related illnesses.

- Food and Water Scarcity: 
Crop failures begin due to extreme weather, leading to higher food prices and food shortages. Water scarcity becomes a daily concern.

- Daily Life:
Families struggle with increased costs for food and water. Power outages become common due to strain on the energy grid from extreme weather.

Year Five: Intensifying Strains

Environment:

- Biodiversity Loss:
Significant decline in wildlife populations, with many species going extinct. Pollinator insects like bees drastically reduce, affecting crop production.

- Degraded Ecosystems: 
Forests and coral reefs show severe degradation. Soil fertility declines due to erosion and overuse of chemical fertilizers.

Human Society:

- Health Crisis: 
More widespread health issues due to poor air and water quality, and malnutrition becomes common.

- Economic Instability: 
Job losses in agriculture and fishing sectors. Increased migration from rural to urban areas as farmlands become unproductive.

- Daily Life:
Daily life revolves around securing basic necessities. Families spend a large portion of income on food and water. Social unrest and crime rates increase.

Year Ten: Escalating Crisis

Environment:

- Marine Life Collapse: 
Fish populations plummet due to overfishing and ocean acidification. Dead zones expand in the oceans.

- Severe Water Shortages:
Major rivers dry up, affecting millions. Groundwater depletion becomes critical.

Human Society:

- Famine:
Widespread famine in poorer regions. Even in developed countries, food rationing is introduced.

- Public Health Emergency:
Hospitals overwhelmed by patients suffering from malnutrition, infectious diseases, and pollution-related illnesses.

- Daily Life:
Families face daily challenges of finding food and clean water. Energy rationing is introduced. Civil services, such as education and healthcare, become unreliable.

Coming Soon --- 10 years after.

Year Fifteen: Societal Breakdown

Environment:

- Mass Extinctions:
Many animal species, including large mammals and birds, go extinct. Insects, crucial for many ecosystems, suffer massive die-offs.

- Ecosystem Collapse:
Complete collapse of some ecosystems, such as rainforests and wetlands. Soil infertility leads to widespread desertification.

Human Society:

- Mass Displacement: 
Millions become climate refugees, fleeing uninhabitable areas. Cities become overcrowded.

- Governmental Strain:
Governments struggle to maintain order. Martial law is imposed in many areas to control food distribution and civil unrest.

- Daily Life:
Life is characterized by scarcity and fear. Families live in cramped conditions, often without reliable electricity or clean water. Community support systems break down.


Year Twenty: Post-Collapse Existence

Environment:

-Barely Surviving Ecosystems: 
Only the hardiest species survive. Natural environments are unrecognizable, with barren landscapes and polluted waters.

- Climate Extremes Normalized:
Extreme weather is the norm, with catastrophic storms and severe droughts a regular occurrence.

Human Society:

- Survival Mode:
The global population has drastically decreased due to famine, disease, and conflict. Small, self-sufficient communities replace large, organized societies.

- Technological Regression: 
With the collapse of global trade and manufacturing, technological advancements regress. People rely on rudimentary tools and local resources.

- Daily Life: 
Families live in survival mode, growing what little food they can and scavenging for resources. Education is minimal, focused on survival skills. Life expectancy drops significantly.

Mortality and Population Dynamics

- Human Mortality: 
Dramatic increase in mortality rates, particularly among the young and elderly. Global population could decrease by 50% or more.

- Animal Mortality: 
Large-scale extinctions, particularly among larger animals and those dependent on specific habitats.

- Insects and Fish: 
Massive die-offs due to habitat loss, pollution, and climate change. Many species of insects and fish go extinct, leading to further disruptions in food chains.

Summary

Life after an ecosystem collapse would be harsh and unforgiving. Daily life would revolve around the struggle to secure basic necessities such as food, water, and shelter. 

The collapse of ecosystems would lead to widespread species extinctions, severe health crises, economic breakdown, and societal upheaval. 

For an average American family, the transformation from a relatively comfortable life to one of constant struggle for survival would be drastic and devastating.

Here is the version of daily life created from this prompt:

"please give a vivid day in the life for a family USA Americans, 20 years after global ecosystem collapse, please make it with force and strong language, sparing no harsh reality of the survival, and make it a personal story, with emotion, and a realistic ending, be as true as you can about their chances of survival, what does it smell like, taste like, are they afraid, give me a good story"


A Day in the Life: Year 20 After Global Ecosystem Collapse


Morning

The sun barely pierces through the thick smog that hangs like a death shroud over what used to be a bustling suburban neighborhood. 

The air smells of decay and burnt chemicals, a stench that clings to the inside of your nose and throat, making every breath a struggle. 

The Johnson family—Tom, Sarah, and their two children, Jake and Emily—wake up on ragged, flea-infested blankets in their makeshift shelter. 

Their home, once filled with laughter and love, now a skeleton of its former self, walls blackened by soot and windows boarded up against the elements and intruders.

Tom's stomach growls as he stretches, the pang of hunger now a familiar companion. 

They haven’t had a full meal in days, surviving on scraps and what little they can scavenge. 

Water is a precious commodity, more valuable than gold. 

Today, their first task is to find some, as their supply ran out the night before. 

They ration what little they have, sharing a few sips each from a grimy bottle. The water is warm and metallic, but it’s all they have.

Midday

The family ventures out, sticking to the shadows and avoiding the main streets where gangs and desperate scavengers roam. 

The city is eerily quiet, devoid of the animal sounds that once filled the air. No birds chirping, no dogs barking—just the occasional distant scream or gunshot, a stark reminder of the lawlessness that now rules. 

The landscape is a wasteland of crumbling buildings and overgrown weeds, nature reclaiming what humanity has destroyed.

They make their way to a nearby stream, one of the few remaining sources of water, though it’s heavily contaminated. 

Sarah sets up a rudimentary filtration system using a torn piece of cloth and charcoal they had found days earlier. It’s not perfect, but it’s the best they can do. 

The water that drips through is murky and foul-smelling, but they have no choice. They fill their bottles and move on, each step a cautious dance of survival.

Afternoon

The sun is high, but its warmth does little to comfort them. Instead, it bakes the toxic ground, releasing a noxious smell that makes their eyes water. 

They search for food, picking through the ruins of an old grocery store. Most of the shelves are bare, but Tom finds a can of beans hidden behind a fallen display. 

He opens it with shaking hands, the sight of the dull, unappetizing beans almost making him cry with relief. They eat in silence, savoring each bite despite the metallic taste that lingers.
Jake and Emily are quieter than usual, their faces gaunt and eyes hollow. At ten and eight, they should be full of energy and mischief, but the collapse has stolen their childhood. 

They know the rules: stay quiet, stay close, and always watch for danger. Every shadow, every noise could mean life or death. 

Evening

As dusk falls, the family makes their way back to their shelter. 

The journey is fraught with tension, each sound amplified in the eerie twilight. 

The darkness brings more dangers; it’s when the most desperate and ruthless come out. 

They reach home safely, though, and breathe a collective sigh of relief.

Inside, Tom lights a small fire, the flickering flames casting ghostly shadows on the walls. 

The heat is minimal, but it’s enough to warm their hands. They sit close together, drawing comfort from their shared body heat and presence. 

Sarah tries to distract the children with stories of the world before—parks, schools, and holidays. But even these tales are tinged with sadness, as they remind them of everything they’ve lost.

Night

Nighttime is the worst. 

The darkness is absolute, and the sounds of the outside world are terrifying. 

The family huddles together, trying to sleep but always half-awake, alert to the slightest noise. 

Fear is a constant companion, gnawing at their sanity. 

Tom stays awake longest, his mind racing with plans for tomorrow, wondering how much longer they can survive like this.

The smell of their unwashed bodies mingles with the scent of damp, moldy walls. 

They haven’t had a proper wash in weeks, only managing to scrub off the worst grime with dirty rags dipped in their precious water supply. 

Their skin itches from filth and bug bites, but there’s little they can do.

The Harsh Reality

Their chances of long-term survival are slim. 

Without proper nutrition and clean water, their bodies are slowly giving out. 

Diseases that were once easily curable now pose deadly threats. 

They live in a constant state of fight-or-flight, and the toll on their mental and physical health is immense. 

Each day is a gift, but also a curse, filled with unending struggle and fear.

But they hold on to each other. In this hellscape, their love is the only thing that remains unbroken, a fragile beacon of hope. 

They know that tomorrow will bring the same battles, the same heartache, but they face it together, driven by the faint, flickering hope that someday, somehow, things might get better.

YOU HOPE THINGS MIGHT GET BETTER

Of course, hope is not really much of a plan, is it? And the harsh reality of the flickering hope just flickering out. Things getting better somehow dies unless they have a severe bout of good luck.

Maybe we can make the story about how they find a secret shelter crammed with all kinds of stuff they need and want, and they can survive off all the stuff, and even go okay. Maybe live out their lives. Not starve to death. This shelter has all the clean water they could ever want. 

All that full-on survival deal, only luxury top end gear.

Like I said, they just get lucky, okay?

"I think we just got seriously really lucky."
"I don't think whoever this was for ever made it here in time:"

Now here is a brief glimpse of a typical day during the onset of global ecosystem failure.


The Last Stand

In the not-so-distant future, the world as we knew it had crumbled. The global ecosystem had collapsed, the supply chains that once fed the world had failed, and the federal, state, and local police forces were nothing more than corrupt remnants of their former selves. In this new world, only the ruthless survived, preying on the weak and vulnerable. It was truly the law of the jungle.



The Miller family, once a typical American household, found themselves in the midst of this chaos. John Miller, a former accountant, and his wife, Sarah, a schoolteacher, had two young children, Emily and Sam. Their suburban home, once a place of comfort and security, had become a fortress in a hostile world.

Food had become the most precious commodity. Supermarkets were looted and empty, and the government’s emergency rations had long since dried up. John and Sarah knew they had to find a way to secure food or face starvation. Every day was a fight for survival, and every venture outside was a perilous gamble.


John had heard rumors of a hidden food stash in the old grocery warehouse on the outskirts of town. It was said to be heavily guarded by a gang that controlled the area, but desperation left no room for caution. One early morning, John armed himself with a makeshift spear and a rusty knife, setting out to find food for his family.

The streets were eerily quiet, with the occasional sound of distant gunfire or a scream piercing the silence. As John approached the warehouse, he could see the gang members patrolling, their eyes scanning for any sign of trespassers. With nerves of steel and a racing heart, he waited for the right moment to sneak in.

Inside, the warehouse was a labyrinth of shelves and debris. John moved quickly but quietly, his senses heightened by fear. He found the stash – a small room filled with canned goods and dried food. It was more than he could have hoped for, but he knew he couldn't carry much without attracting attention. He grabbed as much as he could fit into his backpack and turned to leave.


Just as he reached the exit, a hand clamped down on his shoulder. John spun around to see a gang member with a cruel grin on his face. "Going somewhere?" the man sneered. John’s mind raced as he realized he was outnumbered. In a desperate move, he plunged his knife into the man’s side and ran, not looking back as the shouts of the gang echoed behind him.

John’s return home was a harrowing journey. He took back alleys and side streets, avoiding the main roads where the gangs patrolled. When he finally reached his neighborhood, he saw a plume of smoke rising from his street. Panic set in as he sprinted the last few blocks.


Their home had been attacked. Sarah was fighting off two men with a kitchen knife while Emily and Sam hid behind her. John charged at the attackers with a ferocity he didn't know he possessed, taking them by surprise and driving them away.


The family was shaken but alive. They knew their home was no longer safe. John shared the meager spoils of his trip, and they ate in silence, the weight of their situation pressing down on them. That night, they packed what little they had left and set out in search of a safer place, knowing that safety was a fleeting illusion in this new world.


As they walked through the darkened streets, the children clinging to their parents, John and Sarah exchanged a silent vow: they would do whatever it took to protect their family. In a world where the strong preyed on the weak, they would become the predators, hardened by necessity and driven by the fierce desire to survive. The law of the jungle had claimed their humanity, but it hadn't yet taken their will to live.

They moved through the night, shadows in a dying world, always searching, always fearing, but never giving up. In the end, the collapse had stripped them of everything but the most primal instinct – to survive, no matter the cost.

Great story! Gripping! What really sucks is that this is coming soon to a theater near you...and that theater will be something called Daily Life.

And it will probably look something like this image.


Now how about the next fifty years or so?
How GOOD is it going to get?

Yeah, great. But what is life going to be like for an average family living in Saudi Arabia 20 years after the coming global ecosystem collapse?

Echoes of the Sun


In the heart of what was once a thriving city in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the Al-Faraj family struggled to survive in a world turned unrecognizable. The global ecosystem had collapsed two decades ago, and with it, the dreams and hopes of millions. Now, the world was a hostile wasteland, where scorching temperatures and rising sea levels had reshaped the landscape and human existence.

Morning

Yasir Al-Faraj woke up to the oppressive heat that seeped into their small, crumbling home even before the sun fully rose. He glanced at his wife, Aisha, who lay beside him, her face gaunt and lined with worry. Their two children, Mariam and Hassan, huddled together on a worn mat in the corner, their sleep disturbed by the stifling air.

Water had become the most precious commodity. Yasir rose quietly, careful not to wake his family, and checked the small containers they had scavenged over the years. The water level was perilously low, just enough for a few sips each. He filled a cup and brought it to Aisha, who woke with a start.

“Drink, my love,” he whispered, holding the cup to her lips. She sipped slowly, trying to make the most of each drop, then passed it to Yasir. He took a small sip and placed the cup aside for the children.

The days of luxurious showers and plentiful drinking water were long gone. Now, they rationed every drop, knowing that their survival depended on it. Yasir’s throat was constantly dry, and the taste of salt lingered on his lips, a reminder of the sea that had encroached upon their land.


Afternoon

As the sun climbed higher, the temperature soared. The house, with its broken windows and crumbling walls, offered little respite. Yasir ventured outside, covering his head with a torn cloth to shield himself from the sun’s brutal rays. The streets were eerily quiet, devoid of the bustling life they once knew.

He made his way to the remnants of a market, now just a collection of stalls with barely anything to sell. The few people who remained looked as gaunt and desperate as he felt. Yasir searched through the debris, hoping to find anything that could sustain his family for another day. His heart sank as he came up empty-handed.

The food shortages had grown worse with each passing year. What little crops could grow in the arid soil were often destroyed by the searing heat or swallowed by the encroaching sea. Yasir’s mind wandered to the times when their table was filled with dates, bread, and meat. Now, they subsisted on scraps and whatever they could scavenge.


Evening

Yasir returned home with a heavy heart. The sight of his children’s hopeful faces, quickly turning to disappointment, was almost too much to bear. Aisha tried to comfort them, telling stories of the past, of parks, schools, and holidays. Her voice trembled with the weight of memories and the bleakness of their reality.

As night fell, the temperature dropped slightly, but the air remained thick with despair. Yasir lit a small fire, the flickering flames casting ghostly shadows on the walls. They huddled close together, drawing what little comfort they could from their shared body heat. The fire provided minimal warmth, but it was enough to keep them from the worst of the cold.

They shared a meager meal, a few scraps of dried bread Yasir had managed to find. Each bite was savored, despite the taste of dust and decay. They ate in silence, the sound of their chewing a stark reminder of how little they had.


Night

As they lay down to sleep, Yasir wrapped his arms around his family, holding them close. He could feel the bones beneath their skin, the fragility of their existence. The world outside was dark and unforgiving, but in this moment, he tried to find solace in their togetherness.

The rising sea levels had claimed much of the coastline, and with each passing year, the waters crept closer. Their home, once far from the shore, now stood perilously close to the edge. Yasir often lay awake at night, listening to the distant roar of the waves, wondering how much longer they could hold on.

The global temperature continued to rise, turning the days into a blistering nightmare and the nights into a desperate fight for warmth. Disease and starvation were constant threats, and the once strong Yasir now felt his own strength waning. He looked at his children, their faces etched with the premature wisdom of survival, and prayed they would see another sunrise.

In this new world, hope was a fragile thing, easily shattered by the harsh realities of their existence. But for Yasir, Aisha, Mariam, and Hassan, it was all they had left. They clung to it, even as the world around them crumbled, determined to survive one more day, one more night, together.

And so, they lived, day by day, in a world that had forgotten them, drawing strength from each other and the faint glimmer of a better tomorrow that lay just beyond the horizon.

Yeah, there is that faint glimmer, yeah, like a flickering, right? Of hope. 
And that hope lay just beyond the horizon.
'Cuz that hope was about a better tomorrow.
But that was a hope without a hope of ever coming true.
It was the hope of hopelessness. Knowing full well that the hope was always gonna be a hopeless kind of hope.

Yeah, okay. Great. But what about air conditioning? That'll keep us all nice and cool. So you can take your rising heat levels and I'll just stay indoors where it is nice and cool.


Right?

Record-breaking temperatures across the U.S. are pushing air conditioners to their limits. Most systems are designed to maintain indoor temperatures about 20 degrees cooler than outside, making recent 100+ degree days a challenge.

Understanding the Strain on Air Conditioners

AC Design Limitations  

- Standard Design 
Most new AC systems in the U.S. are designed for a 95-degree day.

- Efficiency Drop: 
Higher temperatures cause efficiency to drop and units to run non-stop, according to Srinivas Garimella, a professor of mechanical engineering at Georgia Tech.

How AC Systems Work 
 
- Basic Principle: 
Refrigerant absorbs heat from a room, is compressed, and releases heat outside.

- Energy Demand: 
The hotter it is outside, the more energy is required for the compressor, resulting in higher electricity usage.

Size and Efficiency  

- Oversizing Issues: 
Installing a larger AC might seem like a solution, but it can be inefficient for most of the year, says Reinhard Radermacher, a professor of mechanical engineering at the University of Maryland.

Emerging Technologies and Current Challenges

- New Tech: 
No immediate "silver bullet" solutions. New technologies still adhere to current AC dynamics.

- Technician Demand: 
Right now, in the year 2024, in places like League City, Texas, technicians are working 12-hour days to keep up with service calls during extreme heat.

When your tech just doesn't work anymore?

In extremely high temperatures, air conditioning systems may need to run continuously to maintain indoor comfort, which can lead to wear and tear, potential overheating, and eventual breakdown. Proper maintenance and ensuring the system is not overworked can help mitigate some of these risks.

Nice. So...proper maintenance? 
Yeah, great. But what if nobody knows how to fix anything anymore? What if the spare parts are scarce or no longer being made?

What if the normal supply chain is broken?
All that convenience...GONE.

Plus, big buzz-kill, all that air conditioning equipment runs on electricity. And it needs a lot of electricity. So...where is that electricity going to come from?

And how are you going to air-condition all the asphalt roads?

When Air Conditioning Starts to NOT Work.
What Will It Feel Like in the Middle East?

Imagine stepping into your home after a long, exhausting day in the searing heat of the Gulf region, expecting the usual rush of cool air to greet you. Instead, you're met with an oppressive wave of heat, as if you've just walked into an oven. The air conditioning, your lifeline against the relentless sun, has failed. Instantly, you feel a trickle of sweat run down your back, your shirt sticking to your skin.

The temperature inside climbs rapidly, transforming your once-comfortable living room into a stifling box. Breathing becomes labored as the hot air feels thick, almost tangible. Every breath you take in feels like inhaling through a hot, damp cloth, offering no relief to your parched throat. Your body starts to react; you feel sluggish, your heart races, and a pounding headache begins to set in from the relentless heat.

You head to the kitchen, hoping to find some cool water, but even that offers little comfort. The tap water is lukewarm, doing little to quench your thirst or cool you down. You splash some on your face, but it evaporates almost instantly, leaving a salty residue from your sweat.

In the bedroom, the sheets feel like they've been left out in the sun. Lying down provides no respite; the mattress is warm, and the ceiling fan merely circulates hot air. You toss and turn, unable to escape the heat. Sleep becomes a distant dream as the temperature continues to rise, and the humidity makes the air feel sticky and suffocating.

Every movement feels like a chore. Simple tasks like cooking or even standing up to fetch a glass of water require immense effort. Your clothes cling to you, damp with sweat. The constant heat and discomfort drain your energy, leaving you irritable and fatigued.

Your mind races with worry about what this means for tomorrow and the days to come. The thought of spending another day in such conditions is daunting. You remember hearing warnings about the increasing frequency of heatwaves and the strain on power grids, but experiencing it firsthand is far more brutal than you ever imagined.

In moments like these, you realize how crucial air conditioning has become in your life, not just for comfort but for survival. The thought of the next 20 years, with even hotter days and more frequent failures, fills you with dread. You ponder if there will be technological advancements to cope with such extremes or if this is just the beginning of a new, harsher reality in the Gulf region.

Living without air conditioning in such extreme temperatures isn't just uncomfortable; it's a relentless assault on your body and mind, a daily struggle to stay cool, hydrated, and sane in the face of unbearable heat.
