Flash floods, caused by the extreme effects of global warming, bring devastation to areas across the country. Fields of crops become waterlogged and unusable; which reduces the amount of harvested food available. Shops and houses are destroyed and the remains of people’s personal possessions and belongings are scattered amongst the debris. The reduced amount of remaining land and resources becomes sought after and recyclable materials that can be found and collected, become essentials in day-to-day living and survival in the new order of the world. New items of water-resistant, protective clothing become fundamental. The lack of modern manufacturing processes forces homemade and primitive production methods to be put into practice, as people fashion garments out of recycled materials to preserve their dignity and maintain a social decorum in the new world.
