Imagine a World where…
Imagine if it happened in a different way… Imagine if we would all have been prepared… Imagine if the technology
would have been a lot more advanced than it is now…
Now imagine it around 150 years in the future ; where most of the world is under water because of global warming apart from little islands where we only grow crops..But where would we be?…Well we would be under the oceans of course, some of us who didn’t mind the heat, float around on top of the seas, There are a really small number of people living on land they are as rare as esquimos were 200 years ago.
But how do we have electricity you may ask? Well floating around the surface of the seas are millions of solar-panels that generates enough electricity for us, but it doesn’t seem to get to the land-people yet. We are not aloud to use heating to protect the earth and to not increase global warming.
Of course we do have water problems… We drink less water,they give us only one litre a day of drinking water per family, sometimes more if they see that we haven’t used much electricty or taken much showers throughout the week, but If we have used a lot we get half of the water or less the same goes with food . I heard that some families didn’t get water because the “waterpeople” got there water and electricty depenser wrong so they were dehydrated and they all finished having illnesses and died. I feel really sorry for them I do hope that it doesn’t happen to my family.
We can’t really go out much but we have 3 hours of lessons a week where we learn about stuff that happened in the past and also how to make the world a better place, It gives us oppurtunyties to meet new people that we can only see on Sundays ( Sunday is visit day for everyone). We have one hour of sport a week where we can also meet new people. We have a couple of families that we go and see on Sundays.Sometimes staying in our house who is quite small for a long time can sometime makes us quite mad and strange so those hours of going out are precious to us.
I have never seen the sun, I have never even been out of the water yet! Under the sea we have everything we need ; Oxygen, Plants, a kind of special light bulb that they have invented 100 years ago that gives you all the vitamin you need that the sun should provide you.
The population is decreasing, in some ways it is quite good because then we won’t run out of crops as quickly.It is really hard to find love here, my parents are extremely lucky to have met each other, I hope that one day i’ll meet someone that will give me butterflys and make me feel madly in love like they talk all about in books. I fear that when the population will shrink to much we will be forced to reproduce.
Sometimes I want to go on the land,look at the sky and feel the heat and the wind stroking against my skin like they explain it in books Or see the old buildings falling apart, seeing what it would of been like to live there like my ancestors , 200 years ago.
Today I wrote a completely different post. I seldom write posts like these, but I thought that I should once in a while. I imagined all this while I was walking home from school. So when I arrived home I immediately made a cup of tea and started typing this little text.
Please tell me if you want more of these little stories/texts. I hoped you liked it!
