Week #37: Creative Writing Challenge – Warning: Sun Begins to Die

October 11, 2021

What if the sun began to die?

Warning: Sun begins to die. Be aware of the following impacts and plan accordingly:

  • Reduced incidence of skin cancer, followed by increased risk of skin cancer as people rush to tanning booths around the world.
  • Mass starvation – yes plants need sun – yes animals eat plants – yes we eat both plants and animals.
  • Increased investment in lighting for greenhouses.
  • Crash of the solar energy market, giving way to increased wind power and depletion of our fossil fuels – the resulting continued global warming would keep the planet warm for a few years and then…
  • I hope you like the cold!
  • Complete collapse of the parasol industry (hats, sunglasses, and sunscreen to follow).
  • A re-write of Peter Pan will appear on the market – Just imagine how different the story is if Peter never has a shadow.
  • Children will not grow up to fear the darkness – that’s just a constant state. So maybe fear is also a constant state?
  • Great statues of sunglasses are erected in remembrance of the sunlight.
  • SAD (seasonal affective disorder) is now a year-round issue and sales of Vitamin D increase 1000-fold.
