We were told for decades that Global Warming was the biggest threat to humanity. It became one of the biggest political talking points in the years before the 2020 presidential elections. Global Warming organizations grew in power and influence over all of the nations throughout the world. One of the organizations United Scientists Association of Climate Change (USACC), became one of the most prominent organizations in science research and most of the government money funded was shifted towards USACC research.
By 2025 any scientist who dared to question the legitimacy of any claim put forth by the USACC would quickly be shunned and exiled from the science community and placed under arrest for contempt and perjury of national security interests. Anti Global Warming protests became illegal and any demonstration contrary to the actions deemed as proper by the USACC and national government was considered treason against humanity. Nations were also forced to adopt the policies of the USACC or be charged with crimes against humanity for the allowance of anti global warming procedures to take place.
In the year 2029, the USACC declared the global warming threat to be at maximum security risk. Several of the top USACC scientists from several countries held a conference in New York City to discuss the impending impact Global Warming would have on the earth. Presidents and leaders from each nation of the world were in attendance, as well as most influential political figures. The event was untelevised because it dealt with issues of top classified maximum-security measures. The USACC also did not want to cause major panic throughout the citizens of the nations.
So far the USACC had been successful in lowering pollution levels to 0.8 percent, the lowest ever recorded levels. Fossil fuels were banned in every country and there was a major shift to alternative powers such as nuclear, solar, and wind power. However, CO2 levels were still at levels high enough to be considered dangerous. At first this caused a stir in not only the scientific community but in the citizens of the nations around the world. Nevertheless, the USACC was quick to act and conceded that the cause of the CO2 levels were from the previous years of human waste still accumulating and also due to a rise in CO2 from natural volcanoes around the world. The USACC feeling pressure from a rise in anti global warming groups swiftly convinced the governments to act accordingly and raise the security level threats so that anyone preaching against global warming would be punished to the fullest extent of the law. Many leaders of the anti global warming groups were used as examples and given stiff sentences of 25 years to life in prison for their disobedience. This also affected political leaders of their own nations. Juan Manuel Escudero, the leader of Argentina during this time was forced to exile his country or face persecution for crimes against global security.
The Conference began by the president, George Henries, of the USACC delivering a PowerPoint presentation. Within his presentation he discussed the effects global warming was having on the earth. He mentioned that although their efforts to keep CO2 and other greenhouse gases low were making progress, the progress was too slow. The presentation showed graphs of current levels of greenhouse gases as well as graphs of average global temperature. At the end of Mr. Henries presentation, a panel of 10 scientists walked to the podium table. They presented a very advanced technological computer simulation of what the Earth would look like in as little as 2 years time. It depicted dry and barren soil in some parts of the world far from any ocean shorelines. Countries near ocean shores were wiped out with huge tsunamis and volcanic activity rose 68% causing entire states and countries to be covered in lava and ash clouds. The forests of the world soon began to disappear as wildfires ran rampant and took out huge sections of woody areas. The earth depicted in the presentation began to look like that of a post-apocalyptic world were no life could exist.
Mr. Henries proceeded to the podium and began his conclusion. He asked that in the grave matter of global security that maximum-security measures would be enforced. He exclaimed to the leaders of all the nations that if they did not join together there could be no chance to prevent these disasters from happening. The global treaty of all nations to work under the same principals was meant to be temporary until the global warming threat was deterred. After saying this there was not much deliberation, the smaller nations leaders feared being exiled and the biggest most powerful nations had a vested interest in the USACC as it was. This was due to the fact that many of the top scientists in the USACC worked under the governments of USA, China and Russia. This speech was merely for formal procedure, as the world’s nations had already been united globally through the USACC since it’s rise.
Mr. Henries then laid out a plan for the future months that needed to be accomplished to ensure the safety of the world against the effects of global warming. The main end goal of this plan was to eradicate CO2 levels completely from the Earth’s atmosphere. After accomplishing this scientists would have to relatively quickly raise back CO2 levels to a historic all time low. In conclusion a healthier and longer lasting Earth would remain.
When news hit world about the intended actions of the USACC and the global uniting of the international governments there was a state of fear. Many countries had citizens that feared complete global takeover of government leading to the ultimate totalitarian regime. However, propaganda issued from the government against this eased tensions for a moment. There were also many citizens who feared the intended plan to release all the CO2 from the Earth’s atmosphere because it was such a drastic step and the results could not be known for certain. In spite of all this though there were many conferences held publically and recorded on television to support the evidence that this would be a safe plan. Even though many citizens held strong objections to the idea, they were forced to accept it due to strict anti global warming laws.
After several months the USACC finally claimed to have found a way to eliminate CO2 from our atmosphere. After months of observational evidence from Mars and from many trials of experimental small-scale procedures in the lab they had finally found a way. The details were top classified and no one except the scientists of the USACC were ever told of the procedures. All that was told to the public was that it would take place in the following month and that there was no cause for concern. The plan was to eliminate the CO2 levels from our atmosphere and over a short period of time the volcanic activity present on earth would restore the CO2 to levels that were historically low.
November 22nd, 2029 was the day that the procedure took effect. Scientists estimated that within two weeks the levels of CO2 in our atmosphere would become non-existent. That much was true and on December 4th, 2029 the news hit everywhere that CO2 levels had ultimately nearly reached 0. It was now time to wait and watch it slowly rise back. The estimates for this to occur were not so precise and ranged from 1 week to 2 months. However, the USACC assured all citizens that even at the far end of the expected spectrum the other greenhouse gases would keep the earth warm enough to be sustainable til then. They were dead wrong —
December 18th was the day that most of the Earth entered a very harsh winter with severe blizzards and freeze storms. At first evidence of this was hidden from the public and citizens were left to believe that these storms were local to them and that these conditions were to be expected and should not be cause for concern.
January 7th after several weeks of freezing temperatures and snow storms worsening there began a global panic. The USACC tried to force the military to keep the citizens under control but there was far too many people and too many riots to keep a handle on the situation. Citizens began looting the stores for anything to could get to help them survive. The USACC tried its best to keep the situation under control but even they knew the impending danger that was to come. They had been hiding the evidence for fear of outrage from the public but after an entire month of waiting CO2 levels had not risen at all and there did not seem to be any indication that it would any time soon. Many scientists became so filled up with shame that they began to commit suicide. There was global pandemonium and the one global united organization that was supposed to keep everything together began to crumble apart. The world was left in a state of anarchy.
At first the death rates rose sharply mostly due to murder. People were living fear and paranoia and began to kill the moment they felt threatened or in competition for food. The entire world had begun to freeze over. Entire cities had become engulfed in snow and ice. Solar and wind power became useless as the wind turbines froze over and the sky was darkened by snowstorms.
They told us Global Warming was the biggest threat to humanity and yet today is the day the earth froze.
