BRIEF SYNOPSIS: The Arctic in 2040. The ice caps are drastically depleted, and despite ongoing global concern for climate change, countries have continued to ramp up fossil fuel extraction in the region. Oil has been flowing fast and cheap from the Arctic for the last twenty years—but it’s time to turn off the taps. Scientists have pinpointed the exact date by which all extraction must cease. After that, there’s no chance of saving the planet. The finding has inspired a controversial movement called Halt Day, which is regarded as either a sliver of hope or a recipe for disaster, depending who you ask.
