Learning from Australia's Drought to a Mad Max Future
"I Have Seen the Future, and it Looks Like Mad Max"
Interesting Stuff About Bottled Water
B.) Since seeing the new Mad Max, Furry Road in theaters I cannot help but feel as though it resinated with me on more than one level. Set sometime (not specified) in the future humans live in extreme conditions. Water is controlled by one dictator, only allowing a certain amount to be released when he feels it is appropriate. The earth has turned to mud, humans have raided mother earth of all of her goods. Seeds and plants are harvested in one area of the world. Women are treated as property; depending on your genetics you may be chosen to become a breeder, creating the dictators vast servant base known as the "war boys".
C.) Bullet Answers:
1.) Global impact: Globally a war could potentially break out. We could have an extreme hostile survival saturation on our hands if we don't change our ways.
National: I have a feeling that America could be a huge target in the foot race for water because of the superior lakes.
Local/personal: Complete survival mode, I feel as though Minnesotans would be well equipped to survive multiple environments, because of our exposure to multiple seasons.
2.) Greatest Positive Impact: Humans become obnoxiously aware of water usage, plastic products regulated, and minimized. Only organic or compostable items manufactured. If something uses X-amount of energy, oil, or water it should be banned from the industry.
Greatest Negative Impact: We change nothing and continue what we are doing. We have a future as shown in Mad Max, to survive you must kill, laws and government are gone, anything goes: each man for himself.
4.) Nature/Bio Tech.
