If the area had looked overgrown and rusty before then it looks even worse now on the Northern side, with young trees pushing up through the dragon's teeth tank defences. Hughes doesn't look like the veteran of the Z-War that he is. Instead he more resembles a university professor, with glasses, a mild expression and rumpled clothes.

We're going to add at least 1000 GT of fossil carbon to the atmosphere, and while I don't expect us to binge all the way through the remaining 4000 GT of accessible reserves, we may get through another 1000 GT. So the climate is going to be rather ... different. Sea levels will have risen by at least one, and possibly more than ten metres worldwide. Energy and technology: I think there's a high probability (approaching certainty) that we'll be running on a de-carbonized energy cycle by then.

It takes the perspective of a young woman who has been ordered to continuous bedrest as a treatment for hysteria. Trapped in a small room in her husband's country house, with nothing to do all day but sleep and write in her journal, she starts to dwell upon the dingy yellow wallpaper that decorates the place.
