Twittering Tales #135 – 7 May 2019

It’s time again, for Kat Myrman’s wonderful challenge, to write a story, inspired by her picture prompt, in 280 characters or fewer.

Here is this week’s prompt and my contribution.

Check out all the fabulously creative entries here and, if you’ve never had a go, why not try a story of your own? You may surprise yourself!

Carbon capture was great. The city could create pollution without fear of the consequences.  We kept on pumping the carbon emissions into the caves and fissures deep below our feet, and everything was fine.

Until, one day, the frackers breached the caves.

Not so great now is it!

  1. I love your take on the prompt. Carbon capture seems like a bandaid on a major hemorrhage. I can’t believe it’s a viable long term solution. And what about leeching into the already precarious groundwater supply? If it acidified the oceans it’s bound to have a catastrophic effect on freshwater too. Thanks for sharing the link as well, Peter.


  2. I watched a documentary on fracking a few years ago. Scary stuff. Fire coming out of people’s water faucets. But oh, they say, it’s perfectly safe. Great take on the prompt Peter! Makes one think!
