As the couple pulled in, they saw that they were
the only people visiting the museum at that time.
They had come all the way from Fresno to see this
last vestige of the combustion engine. The museum
even had pumps that worked for those who still
kept their antique cars in working condition. You
could buy things like fan belts and spark plugs
online but gas couldn't be shipped. Not many
bothered as it brought with it the stigma of being
one of the last holdouts. The only cars still
putting out exhaust were those equipped with
systems that almost cleaned the exhaust completely
before it could be expelled into the atmosphere.
It was just one of the extreme solutions enacted
in the wake of mankind no longer being able to
hold back the floods, droughts, and hurricanes
taking away the livable land.
Fusion is the fuel of the future as the electrical
vehicle market was the only way left to get
personal transportation. That's because in 2051,
the effects of climate change could no longer be
ignored and anything causing it wasn't socially
acceptable. Now, everyone did their part to reduce
the damage in the hopes it would heal the planet.
Thanks to unlimited energy with none of the
nuclear waste, fusion power plants had replaced
all other forms of nonrenewable energy. Technology
had solved the problems of clean transportation of
goods and people by cooperation on a global scale.
Pollution for profit had become a criminal
activity and even accidental pollution could incur
The change wasn't overnight and not everyone was
happy with that change but no one could ignore the
inevitable results of doing nothing. All of this
was a part of a plan of Ashtar Command's that had
been going on since the colonization of Atlantis.
It wasn't just a technological revolution but a
social one as well. Everyone was now on board as
far as returning the planet to its once pristine
state. Evolution and ascension are symbiotic, one
being the means to the other. The world of 2051
had experienced enough geologic and ecologic
changes to warrant such extreme measures.
Coastlines had been redrawn and weather seem to
threaten anyone and everyone.
The couple wandered the aisles of the museum
looking at car parts along with their descriptions
that lined the walls. A 1956 Chevy sits on one
side of the room as just one example of the many
antiques waiting in the display building in the
back. On the other side of the room is a 2041
Chevfordik Coaster, the last of Detroit's gas
guzzlers. Who would've thought such a transition
was possible in only 30 years? Hardly anyone at
present because such changes would be unimaginable
without the climate driven feedback loops that
threaten humanity's very survival. Should those
begin to happen, the above will be a very viable
solution that may be the most logical way we
survive as a race. Who knows, eighty years from
now might see museums popping up containing the
last pieces of roadway still in existence.
