A Future Earth

This is what a future Earth could look like if/when temperatures reach +4 degrees C.

The map was published in New Scientist some time ago. It is an interesting setting for wargames in, say, 2200 to 2500.

  1. The Brexiteers will have a fit if they see this as most of Europe will have to move to Britain (or western Antarctica) one thought will we have enough fossil fuels to make the temperature rise that high and will the world population still be at the 9 billion mark if we've had so many catastrophes and disasters (I suppose thats the if bit) Though Frank Herbert is probably sitting there going I told you so (Dune)

  2. Good to see Blighty now a prime holiday destination, all those ex-pats will have come home! On the plus side, a massive energy belt of PV should mean free energy for all... or massive revenue for the mega corporations like AppleGoogle, SnapBook and AmazonSky...

  4. Very interesting, although it only notes land permanently lost to the sea and not the fens and wetlands created by higher water levels.

    UK floods of recent years will pale in comparison to future ones with a +2m sea level.

    Naturally, as mentioned above, there are those who will certainly profit from the changes.
