The water levels rose despite the conflicting claims of environmentalists, scientists and governments. Among the first to go under were Mauritius, French Polynesia, Micronesia and the other Pacific nation islands. The "world leaders" continued to bicker and argue over who would cut how much emission and who would fund the cut-backs while the nations slipped under water. Nobody had learnt anything from the experience of Kiribati in 2005. Next to go under were the coastal plains, where 70 per cent of the world's population lives, and 11 of the world's 15 largest cities situated on the coastal estuaries. While finger pointing and the blame game continued, cities like London, Bangkok, New York and Alexandria ended up below sea level. And that is when they woke up, but it was too late. Coastal flooding and storm damage, eroding shorelines, salt water contamination of fresh water supplies, flooding of coastal wetlands and barrier islands - the water continued to surge inland, unrelenting and too powerful for man to stop it. Until only a few peaks stood with their heads above the water.

The ozone layer completely depleted, the sky turned a fiery orange.

The human colony on the moon reported the birth of the first human child. It lived for exactly 48 hours, a sedated soul in a deformed body, unrecognisable as a human being.
