Los Angeles
September, 2020

It turns out the dystopian future we were all so scared of wasn’t the fault of bioengineered beings descending upon the planet it was all these boring ass humans who continue to hold this city hostage while ignoring the extremely obvious crises they’ve known about for decades

Less than 15 years ago a heatwave killed an estimated 350 to 450 people *just in Los Angeles*

If only we’d had some kind of warning that this might happen again

Who needs post-apocalyptic science fiction when you have fossil fuels
