Our planet has suffered great devastation at the hands of catastrophic climate change. Carbon Dioxide levels in the atmosphere was one of the predominant causes.
Carbon Dioxide and other gases produced by our civilization helped warm the oceans. Hurricanes and Cyclones grew in titantic magnitude and ravaged our world delivering herculean winds and rain storms to crowded parts of our world.
Many coastal cities were reduced to ground zero. Because the polar caps experienced significant loss of ice and snow, countless islands and coastlines soon disappeared. Numberless people from all walks of life lost loved ones and material value. The only thing that remained for many were memories of better times.
As the great benefactors stepped up their intentions, resources were no longer a challenge. Solving the perilous dilemma of climate change soon became possible.
One of the ways our civilization had great success was using zero carbon synthetic fuels. Upon the discovery of a new technology that could create synthetic fuel by removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, the time to reverse the damage went from decades to months.
Empiricism was saving our world.
