picnics at the end of the world

I read some where that Stephen Hawking said that if we tried really hard this century we could set in motion processes that will boil away the seas in about a millennium which I know sounds like a long time from now but wealthy babies born amongst us today should be fully transposed into a machine form that will last long enough to view this byproduct of our age from the cool safety of the dark side of the moon. As you can see the people in my painting aren’t really at the very end, they still have huckleberries and bubbles and wine and something to cook (and they don’t seem to be cannibals yet) and the seas are far from boiled away. They are still rising.
