Climate refugees, earth citizens, and an Task Force with a biologically based citizen salary

It's hot, the air is still. A digital beep sounds in the background. There is a tension in the air. We, a Specialist Group of Climate Refugees and Earth Citizens (Earth Citizen Task Force), are sitting in the tent, Baslägret in Visby harbor. Ready for the latest report from Earth.

Biologisk AI presents the latest predictions for the next climate catastrophe with 98% certainty. Since citizens' wages are driven by surpluses from regenerative biological ecosystems, we do not have to worry about working for wages. The idea of "employment" exists mostly as legends from the past. AI, Robotics, Blockchains and other, somewhat more sophisticated solutions, have replaced the old human job. Instead, people are free to use their creativity and resources to respond to, adapt and develop in symbiosis with the constant fluctuations of the climate.

Most live as nomads. "Authorities", or rather services that support human rights, are provided through The (E)arth Citizenship: global, inclusive citizenship. Nation states have largely decayed, the financial system has been replaced by biologically based virtual products that simply outperformed the old exploitative alternatives. Decisions are made decentralized, via the latest generation DAO (decentralized autonomous organization).Trading takes place mainly through NFTs which (following the bizarre AP trend) are used more value-creating as digital versions of biological assets that enable free trade with regenerative systems.Your physical, creative and financial investments are tracked transparently through RROII (regenerative return of impact investments), which is how you are an influencer.

The beep cuts through the incense and the muffled voices in the tent. The latest GDP (Global Development Progress, not Gross Domestic Product) - The report is announced:

- Within 4 months, we risk being part of the 13 million islanders who are on the run (again), as a result of coming tidal waves. For the 80,000 people who live on Gotland and are more than self-sufficient in solar and wind energy, with good food security thanks to vertical cultivations, the future suddenly looks uncertain.

The special group of earthlings is now faced with our biggest task to date:

We have 4 months and our collective resources available to ensure that everyone can migrate safely. We need:

  • Identify where we are going to move (with increased drought and fires, we need to scan alternative locations)
  • Compile a mass migration plan (transport and logistics)
  • Ensure mobile food security
  • Create shelters
  • Set up mobile energy infrastructure

Conditions:

Since you do not have to work for money, you have all your time available. You can also invest SEK 25,000 per month (you save SEK 15,000 of your monthly UBI for basic needs), so SEK 100,000 in total. What are you doing? How do you act together?


You hear the wind outside the tent increase…
