3. the tunnels

 

Everything was underground in the new world. Since water levels had risen so much, from the ice caps melting, whole communities were underground. And these were called the tunnels. The tunnels were made up of halls and corridors, and off these were apartments and businesses. The apartments were airy (well they had to float) and often had six rooms in; big ones had seven or eight; smaller ones only had four or five rooms and the apartments normally had two floors. Businesses were made up of a small stock room or creation room, two offices and a main selling room. They were only small because they were only there to serve the community.

Food was a problem, especially fresh food because there wasn’t much land about. Any land that was spare however, was used for the purpose of growing food and textiles. The new ration system meant there was more food around, but people were still starving.

Energy was another thing that was in short supply.  The first blackout happened just after the Rio 2016 games and ever since blackouts had become more common and worse. These were huge global blackouts which sometimes went on for hours. Even with the people of the world using next to nothing energy, they were still going to run out in only ten years’ time.

Well at least nothing worse could happen with global warming. Early 21st century humans had destroyed the wildlife and only evolutions’ monsters lived now.
