 LET’S INHERIT THE EARTH by Morna Pearson

 Adele has just hit number one with her new album, 43.

 
Somewhere in the Caribbean, three turtles are staring in disbelief and helplessness at the expanding patch of seaweed which threatens to destroy their habitat. The seaweed spreads towards luxury beach-front condominiums, owned by the super-rich Mucklefannys of the Highlands and the Storskinkas of Sweden. Their concern is the threat to the value of their properties and the quality of their cocktails.
 
In Moray, Jane and Grant have stocked up on weaponry, an inflatable canoe and Marmite in case of an “event”.  Sure enough, the North Sea floods in and the geography of northern Europe is transformed.
 
The forests of Sweden are on fire.  Josef, Tove and their child Lukas are frantically packing as the fire approaches. Lukas asks about granny stuck upstairs.  She’s not really a cockroach like daddy says, is she?  
 
The refugees from the fire and the flood meet in the wilderness, unsure of what country they are actually in. No sign of granny.
 
The turtles swim for safety as the condo owners metamorphose and bake, welcoming the sea lapping at their balconies - saves them the walk to the beach. What’s a turtle’s favourite cocktail?
