Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Act 10, First Episode Evoke Season 2

Setting: The headwaters of the Amazon on the borders of Bolivia, Peru, and Brazil.

A young girl, maybe 8 or 9 years old, paddles a canoe downstream with her grandfather. She sees a harpy eagle overhead.

"Grandpa, whats that?'

Her grandfather replies, "That, my daughter, is the mighty arpia. It rules the skies and patrols the Madre de Dios river."

Next panel.

Their canoe rounds a bend. They come upon a huge floating mass of garbage.

"Abuelo, what is all that?"

Her grandfather shakes his head."That is garbage, mija."

Next panel, flashback.

A women gathering and preparing fruits and vegetables is shown, while the grandfather narrates.

"Years ago, we didn't have all of these plastic wrappers and metal cans."

Next panel, flashback.

A group of children are climbing fruit trees and eating fruit.

"We ate natural things, fruit, vegetables...

Next panel, flashback

A group of men hunting a capybara

Narration continues

"We ate animals from the forest"

Next panel, flashback

A young man in a canoe casts a spear, as a woman behind pulls a fish up in her net

"And fresh, healthy fish from the river".

End flashback, next panel back at the debris pile

"Then the stores began opening up, and all of these plastic and metal things started piling up."

Next panel, flashback.

A mother and child are in a shop looking at candy and soft drinks while the mom holds a piece of fruit, an angry child points at the candy..

"The sugars and fats in these new goods taste better to children, and the advertising makes them think its better."

Next panel

A child throws the wrapper from his candy into the river

"Our people still treat the 'skins' of these new products like they did the husks of fruit."

Next panel

The wrapper floats down the river and ma**** in the huge pile with all the other garbage.

"But unlike natural things, these plastics will be here for years to come."

Next panel, the future.

Futuristic archeologists unearth piles of plastic trash.

"Will future generations look at all of this garbage we've left behind?"

Next panel, Alchemy is looking at the debris pile through a satellite image.

"This has gone on long enough. We need to act. Get me Ember.

Next panel, Ember is on a phone in South America.

"Alchemy, how can I help you."

On the phone, Alchemy: "We need to come up with a market based solution for all this trash thats piling up. How can we replace these plastics without losing their functionality?"

The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
