Great Floods tells an old story and a new one. The old story—told in every culture and religion—is about how humans misbehaved in the bountiful world the gods created for them. The gods then sent a great flood to punish them, and only a couple of virtuous humans survived. The new story takes place today, when humans still seem bent on destroying the world with their greed and carelessness. Now the laws of nature are responding, like the ancient gods, with great floods.
