Our Last Breath
In a not-so-distant future, the Earth has fallen victim to a catastrophic event, a severe lack of CO2, the essential gas required for the survival of plant life and, consequently, all other forms of life on the planet. As a result, the world has become a barren wasteland, with desolate landscapes stretching as far as the eye could see. The air has become thin and lifeless resulting in the collapse of plant life, oxygen depletion, and the extinction of many species, and humanity teeters on the brink of extinction.
LENA finds herself fighting for survival amidst the crumbling remnants of civilisation.
The atmosphere, once abundant with this essential greenhouse gas, has now been depleted to alarming levels, leading to dire consequences for the planet and all forms of life.
She remembers the days when CO2 was taken for granted, when it fuelled the growth of plants, sustained animal life, and regulated the planet's climate. Now, she must face the harsh reality of a world on the brink of collapse.
Lena embarks on a quest to restore CO2 levels and bring life back to the barren wasteland. She embarks on a perilous journey across the ravaged world. She travels through the remains of once-thriving cities, traverses treacherous landscapes, and braves the harsh elements in her search for remnants of plant life, nurturing and protecting them with unwavering dedication. Armed with a makeshift greenhouse which she pulls around with her on a cart, she creates a small oasis where plants can thrive, releasing precious oxygen and fighting against the impending doom.
Some tenacious plants managed to survive in small oases, providing her with a glimmer of hope. Drawing strength from these fragile ecosystems, she gathers seeds and cuttings from the surviving plants, carefully preserving them for the crucial task ahead.
She scavenges through ruins and abandoned laboratories, seeking any remnants of technology or information that could aid her mission.
Along the way, she encounters other survivors, each struggling to adapt to the bleak reality.
Lena's quest takes her to unexpected places, searching for hidden pockets of CO2. She learns to harness what little remains, using it strategically to rejuvenate damaged ecosystems and promote the re-growth of plant life. With each success, she inspires hope in those around her, reigniting a flicker of optimism in the hearts of the few desperate survivors that are left.
In this fight against the consequences of humanity's actions, Lena embodies the resilience and spirit necessary to rebuild a shattered world. Through her struggle and unwavering hope, she shows that even in the face of overwhelming adversity, the power to change the course of our future lies within our hands.
