Earth Day, 2090

The obese, junk food obsessed, gadget addicted crowd applauded as the President came before the green screen, the VFX experts would add the dense forest in the background post production.
There was no more of natural oxygen left on earth, the technology of creating it in the lab had been discovered.

Everyone wore an oxygen mask, the President opened his, took two puffs from an oxygen inhaler, posed for a picture and put it back on.
The next day’s e-papers had that picture in the front page. Diana, a six year old asked her mother, who was reading it on her iPad Ultimax, what those things at the back of the President were. “Remember about the Legend of the Trees I told you last week?” She started repeating the whole story again after adjusting her oxygen mask. The world was definitely not a better place to live in.
