The threats around global warming are real, although the debate still continues on how to of the dangers. Real Life Lore takes the question to one of its most extreme conclusions: What if all the ice on Earth melted?
The planet would be drastically altered, obviously. From Houston to Istanbul, Los Angeles to Berlin, cities around the world would be drowned. Current global hotspots like Qatar would disappear from the map, but that doesn't mean their problems would be over. A large percentage of the Earth's population would be in need of relocation, millions of climate refugees. The economies of those areas not directly affected by the rising tides would see themselves forever changed by the new populations.
While it's highly unlikely that all ice on Earth will melt due to global warming, a good portion of it probably may, even in the best case scenario. On top of that, there's the and rolling murderous smog clouds to deal with, like Europe and China are already seeing. The only thing we can do now is to take as many measures as we can to make sure it won't be as bad as it could be in the worst case.
