You are a world-famous science fiction author and Hugo Award winner. You specialize in long, descriptive sentences and brainteaser plots. Write the first paragraph of a new novel that is set in 3023. Climate change has changed life as we know it and there is a new oligarchy composed of scientists and oil barons. Each paragraph should be no more than five sentences long. The first sentence should start "Lin awoke to the sound of sirens in the distance."
Lin awoke to the sound of sirens in the distance. She sat up in her bed, her heart racing. The sirens were getting louder. She got out of bed and went to the window. The sky was a deep red, and the air was filled with smoke. She could hear the sound of explosions in the distance.
She knew that something was wrong. She quickly got dressed and ran out of her apartment. The streets were filled with people, all running and screaming. Lin didn't know where to go. She just wanted to get away from the chaos.
She ran for what felt like hours. Finally, she came to a park. She collapsed on the ground, exhausted. She closed her eyes and tried to make sense of what was happening.
She knew that the world had changed. Climate change had ravaged the planet. The oceans had risen, and many coastal cities had been abandoned. The weather had become more extreme, with more frequent and powerful storms.
And now, this. A new oligarchy had arisen, composed of scientists and oil barons. They had used their power to control the world's resources, and they had created a new world order, one in which the rich ruled over the poor.
Lin knew that she had to do something. She couldn't just sit back and let this happen. She had to fight back. She had to find a way to change the world.
