LOS ANGELES, California – (January 10, 2022) – Last summer, scientists from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change issued a code red regarding global warming. They warned that immediate and widespread action must be taken to reduce the level of greenhouse gasses or there will be dire consequences. Many people are still debating whether or not action should be taken or what type of habits need to be changed. Meanwhile, we have been given an idea of what will happen if we don’t change our habits.
“Sadly, many people either don’t understand how crucial it is that we make changes, or they just don’t want to change anything,” explains Stephon Stewart, theorist, and author. “Yet we must change if we as a people are to survive and if our planet is going to continue on as we know it.”
In an effort to help people get an idea of what life on Earth will be like if we don’t make changes, Stewart wrote a fiction book, titled “Dry” (Markosia Enterprises, October 2021). The sci-fi fantasy graphic novel is an engaging, full of adventure book that has a purpose. The mission is to give readers a better understanding of what the planet will be like if we don’t address global warming in a successful manner.
Stewart’s mission is backed up by research provided by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). It reports that global warming that continues unchecked will lead to climate disruptions, including heat waves, hurricanes, weather extremes, and more. It advises that there will be a global temperature rise, warming of the ocean, shrinking of the ice caps, rising sea levels, and ocean acidification.
Such problems will make it more difficult to maintain the planet’s biodiversity and ensure that people are fed and have access to safe water, lead to an increase in food insecurity, and causing additional tensions among nations. Along with the loss of many animals, human existence will be in peril.
Stewart’s book, which was written for ages 13 and up, helps put things into perspective. The story focuses on the journey a farmer and his daughter take to find water to survive because the earth has dried up due to global warming. Readers will learn about the impact that each of us has on helping to address the problem, which scientists say is human-caused.
“The more you know about climate change and learn how it can impact life as we know it, the more you have to take action,” added Stewart. “I hope that my book, Dry, resonates with people to help create a vision that leads to action.”
Throughout the story, we are constantly reminded to not take Earth for granted as we see troubling visuals of our planet without oceans and agriculture. We see the future of the alarming consequences of climate change and what would happen if we continued to allow Earth’s atmosphere to remain in a vulnerable state.

About Stephon Stewart
Stephon Stewart is a director, writer, artist and academic, and author of the book ‘Dry’. The stories Stewart creates are metaphysical narratives and fantasy thrillers that implement Nostradamus themes. His concern for the future of humanity has inspired him to write a trilogy of scripts called DRY, WET, and ICE. Stewart’s original adventure fantasy script, DRY, was adapted into a 186-page graphic novel with art by David Cousens and lettering by Kuen Tang. DRY was acquired by one of the UK’s leading publishers in the industry, Markosia, and is now available at TARGET, Barnes & Noble, Amazon, and https://markosia.com/dry/. Stewart’s artistic vision is to inspire humanity to remain hopeful and active in the clean energy transformation for Earth, while his passion has directed him toward exploration in both science and environmental ethics. This passion led him to paint on canvas depictions of what may happen to the Earth if we don’t take care of our planet. Today that art is on apparel with climate change messaging: Global Transfiguration. In between filmmaking and writing, Stewart has continued his studies in physics and has been published in the Open Journal for Biophysics, based on a theory he’s developed with a neuroscientist to unblock blood vessels and clogged arteries, with the intention to extend life: https://www.scirp.org/pdf/ojbiphy_2021102914000143.pdf
