One day, in the hopefully distant future, when the planet is uninhabitable and all other life forms
have given up the uneven struggle, the sole sentient survivor may look ruefully at this picture and
realise that this is where it all began to go wrong - the West's inability to control its energy
consumption, leading to a renewed dependence on fossil fuels (the anti-climate-change
reactionaries having taken over), sea-level rises making coastal cities uninhabitable, rampant
industrialisation by emergent nations leading to global smog, all effective control and discipline now
in the hands of an increasingly unconstrained and destructive nuclear-fueled robot force who don't
need sunshine to function, no more moderating Arctic or Antarctic influence (and the oceans now
as polluted as the atmosphere), and all arts, history and heritage consumed by global wildfires.
The final extinction. Dante's Seventh Circle of Hell has arrived, with 'boiling rivers of blood and
burning rain falling from the sky'. But not to worry, by this time a select few will be starting to do
the whole thing all over again on Mars - the rich shall inherit the Solar System. By the time Olaf
Stapledon's 'Last Man' has put out his last cigarette (pronounced good for you again by the
corporate lobbyists), the rest of us needn't have existed with all our hopes, our squabbling
religions, our love of life and our strivings for a better world. The lunatics took over.

I want to help
There are some splendid people doing a splendid job in helping us survive cancer. Picturesonline.co.uk are proud to support the life-saving work of Cancer Research UK and hope that you'd like to as well...  Thank you.
