Climate activist says God told him to prepare world for ''polar cities'' for survivors of ''climate chaos'' in 2121 AD
Self-described modern-day "Jeremiah" says prayerful vision led to insight into the need for polar cities for survivors of climate chaos in futureNEW YORK -- A pioneering American climate activist, Danny Bloom, says
New novel POLAR CITY RED available on amazon etc tells fictional story of family in a polar city in Alaska in year 2075; some call it ''cli fi'', others call it ''sci fi'' -- whatever it is, the novel is a climate thriller, entertaining read and full of God's truth as well
that in a prayerful vision four years ago, God told him to prepare
humankind for ''polar cities" for survivors of "climate chaos" in 2121
A.D. Calling himself a modern-day Jeremiah, the soft-spoken climate
activist, 63, says that by 2121 A.D., billions of people will die in
massive human die-offs due to devastating climate change impacts of
excessive heat waves, widespread drought, and a dire lack of food,
fuel and shelter for billions of climate refugees.
"I see dead people," Bloom says. "Billions of dead people. But at the
same time, I see hope, too, for those
remaining remnants surviving in polar cities."
Bloom, a 1971 graduate of Tufts University, has been discussing,
planning, designing and pre-siting "polar cities" for global warming
survivors since 2008, when
New York Times reporter Andrew C. Revkin interviewed him about his work (google "dot earth + polar cities" for link).
that there are no solutions to fixing the problems of global warming,
and that it is already too late to stop what he calls The Great
Interruption, when humankind will die in massive die-offs in the
distant future, leaving only remnants of humans alive
in polar cities scattered across the northern regions of Earth (and in
New Zealand and Australia, too).
"God told me in a prayerful vision that only man-made 'polar cities'
will save the human species from extinction," Bloom says. "I am an
optimist and I have hope that polar cities will serve God's purpose."
In addition to promoting ''polar cities'' as the only real and ''workable''solution to climate change problems, Bloom also commissioned a Christian writer in Oklahoma to write a religious novel about polar cities titled "Polar City Red".
"Jim Laughter's novel is the first literary novel to ever talk about polar
cities, and it deserves a wide readership, both as entertainment and as serious and prayerful thinking. Time is running out,'' Bloom says,
''and the time to start discussing, planning, pre-siting and even pre-building polar cities is now.
Brief synopsis of ''Polar City Red'' -- ''It's 2075 in Alaska and
global warming has destroyed the Earth's ecosystems worldwide, and
mllions of people have had to trek north to find shelter polar cities
in the Arctic region. Not everyone gets in: there are Godless
scavengers out on the tundra murdering for good and supplies. It's a
character-driven novel, and a fast read. And it's more than just
explosions and murders. And it ends on a note of hope and prayerful
Mr. Laughter's 200-page novel explores how faith and religion will survive in a
post-apocalyptic world, and asks questions like: "Would mankind's sins
of the past follow him into the future?"
While it paints a picture that is "not a pretty picture", it also
ends on a note in the final chapter of hope and moral optimism. So it's a positive book, and not a downer,
as one might expect from the theme. In fact, Laughter offers hope for humankind.
Read ''Polar City Red'', set in the near future after God's wrath and man's stupidity destroys the ecosystem of the Earth. It's science
fiction -- for now!
