Human development in identity classification and tracking
What if, instead of people dying, murdered, killings, suicides, starvation, disease, neglect or abandonment and it was the planet failing or the eco systems expiring. Would the world come together in an effort to keep mankind from extinction or would we simply keep on destroying other civilisations to be the last ones standing.
Two thousand years in the future, Earth has degraded to a dying status, atmosphere too low to sustain human life and oceans blown away by solar winds. The magnetic field depleted to almost zero. Humanity has to live underground in air circulated cites and scientific minds and artificial intelligence has not found any answers. Into this situation, a time traveller arrives, but hopes of finding answers from innovative thinkers from the past are dashed when they find the pilot dead on arrival. Can this setback be overcome by radical do or die action or is the planet doomed to become no more than another piece of floating debris in the vast cosmos.
