Each time a turtle hatched a new idea sprung into the world. A mad scientist would invent something new — maybe a time machine — or a writer would find inspiration.
Because of global warming, however, many beaches disappeared, and the turtle’s natural habitats dwindled.
The more warming took place, but not enough action to prevent it was taken, the fewer good ideas were birthed.
Soon, people were clueless. They forgot their inspiration came from the turtles and their futures were connected to nature.
Eventually, the last turtles swam off the planet’s edge and left humans to fend for themselves.
