Before i start i will say that i am not saying global warming is a good thing. However...
Rising sea levels = bigger tidal shifts = bigger potential for Hydro/Tidal Power
Hotter climate/ more sunshine = bigger potential for solar power
Harsher weather conditions = stronger/more frequent winds = bigger potential for wind power
by the time this happens we will be seriously short on natural fuel sources.
It's all swings and roundabouts really but when the global climate does eventually get serious we can use the adverse effects in our favour creating
less pollution and allowing the planet to recover over time. It might not be ideal but it is one of many outomes.
I know this sounds crazy but when the high brows of the planet finally realise they have to do something and it is no longer economically viable to be
using coal, oil and gas there could be a non optional shift for the good of the planet. Everyone will be a winner.
