Daily Writing Prompt #3: Melted Arctic

Here we go with day three of my writing prompt series, where I suggest a scenario (often with a bit of scifi or fantasy flavor) and anyone who sees it is free to brainstorm around it and write a scene or story.

Prompt #3: Melted Arctic  Eventually climate change will claim the arctic and antarctic ice.  The challenge here is to set a story or scene in whatever society or settlement will move into the new areas created by this change.  What would it like to be an antarctic settler in the future?  What sort of culture would develop there?

The loss of our polar ice is a great tragedy, one on a scale we’ve never seen, but all things are fodder for storytelling, wonderful or tragic.  I encourage you to do something on a very human scale with this slow shift as the quiet subtle background.
