An Indian's Blog: India Was One

September 8, 2017

With hurricane Irma rapidly barreling towards Florida, the story of my book seems to hit close to home. Here is an excerpt:

“W — what?” he stammered, not sure he had heard it right. “D — did you say ‘no Florida’?”

“Yes.”

Don’s, Kim’s and Terry’s jaws dropped, looking stunned. Tom was surprised too, but not stunned. Having seen the fate of a planet in the past, he had anticipated the inevitable. However, he was surprised at the speed that it had happened. It being the Earthlings’ first experience; they seemed totally unprepared. Aliens back on Etoo had seen that in the past. Etoo was their third planet; their race had already abandoned two of them. Although he was not born to witness it, he had learned this from the archives. The aliens had been totally unprepared for the first time. There was a lot of chaos when it happened. They were more prepared the second time around, and they had the technology that was far superior than the humans on Earth. They are going through the same that we went through when we abandoned the first planet. They are totally unprepared for the unavoidable. Sooner or later, they will have to make a new home; and the way I see things here, it will be very soon. But where will they go? Even if they want to, how can they go? He wondered.

“What — what do you mean — when did this — how did this — ?” Kim yelled, panicking, “What happened?”

“Global warming.”

The scientific community had warned them of Earth’s temperatures rising, the snow-caps receding, the sea-levels rising. But the greedy humans didn’t heed their warnings. In their selfish desire to hoard money, they had influenced the politicians — the decision makers. They labeled the scientific community as greedy men who were out to get their research project funded. And to make matters worse, the newly elected President was a climate change denier; and he appointed people who were also deniers. The result was catastrophic, not only for America but the entire world. Almost all the island countries had been hit the worst. A few of them had ceased to exist. People had realized their mistake, but it was way too late. There was no turning back. The world had already tipped.

“Most of the lower part of Florida is submerged, only the Panhandle remains. Many of the Caribbean islands are gone. And it’s not just Florida, many of the coastal towns all along the eastern seaboard have been affected. Millions of people have moved inland.”

“What about West Coast?”

“That too has been affected,” he replied, “and — .”

After Charlotesville, VA, I'm afraid that my book will become a historical document rather than a science fiction.

Clothes don't make one attractive, their nature does.
