Recent theory suggests that if global warming continues to grow at its current rate it may be possible that the Artic poles will melt and the Earth will flood. Whether or not this could actually happen is a debate. However, the fact that the theory exists should be enough to make anyone, everyone, think about what our earth and our civilization mean to us. The actions of our society currently say to me, “We don’t care. We are helpless against ourselves and would much rather live comfortably for a few more years and have an apocalypse while our children are in their prime than to take interest and restore our Earth to its beautiful and natural state.”

This work is a prediction of what my street, where I’m currently living out my comfortable life, could or will look like when this theory proves to be sure.
