“* Your story should, in some way, envision the future of Earth and humanity as impacted by climate change.”

Ehh, seems to me like all the clever and most of the not-so-clever stories about climate change have been hashed to death repeatedly by now.

But wait – that’s it! Imagine a world that has been impacted by climate change to a degree that humanity has collectively lost the ability to come up with any more clever stories about climate change. What would that world be like, and what sort of problems would that world face?

For sale, snow shoes, never worn.

(With apologies to Hemingway)

Bending the “six word story” idea slightly:

For sale: snow shoes. What’s “snow”?
