Hot Earth Dreams What if severe climate change happens, and humans survive

What will the Earth look like if severe climate change happens, and humans survive?

Civilization will shatter, the great artworks and monuments vanishing as cities fall into rubble and coasts disappear beneath rising seas. There will be a mass extinction, coral reefs and ice sheets will disappear, and the survi…
