Interesting love c2c however the 7....
As an increase of about 1 - 3 degrees celsius would make growing most grain impossible in an farming way due to as we have seen this year the american
breadbasket of north america crops are ruined and destroyed, and in europe the root vegtables (esp britain) were so flooded they rotted in the ground
before maturation or any attempt to harvest them, mass starvation, 30 metres or so higher seas, feedback loops of methane being liberated from the
deep sea & permafrost, escalating it higher within 10 years of the 1-3 c rise, to maybe 5 degrees or more hotter, with the total melting of both the
artic and antartic and the lack of reflective ice, and then instead dark bodies of water and antartic mountains, absorbing more heat...then the
following etc etc etc....
Would result in not an earth the aliens dont like maybe, but also one where there would be an total collapse of the eco system as we know it, modern
human civilisation of more people than were around during the ice age would be nigh on impossible due to the loss of land mass, the fact 75% of the
worlds cities and populations, are close to the coasts, and the inability to have access to the fertile soil close to these areas and in flood plains,
as they would be underwater.....
So unless humans evolved to eat plankton and seaweed as around 90% of their diet, and could cope with the massive increase in Fungal infections,
parasites and Flu like virus's that would love the moistture in the atmosphere, and confined small land mass with who;s left packed together as much
of what we know know on the global map would be sea, well to be honest the aliens would be an better chance of surviving from in some form of modern
I will take an shot at the aliens as an better risk for humanity, than the nightmare scenario heating up the earths closed (nearly) loop system of the
weather and such like would do if on an large enough scale to make it unlivable compared to now for the aliens, if they would be able to survive in
our current climate any change by an small amount such as 3 degrees mean average higher globaly would not be enough to affect them, compared to the
devasting consequences on life on earth and the climate such an rise would require...an very small rise in mean temp globally would change all of life
on earth, its geography weather etc for millenia, and much of the energy would be stored in the oceans making hurricanes of recent years seem like
thunderstorms, and affecting the climate for hundreds of thousands of years if not more.
The currents would stop or change.
The trade winds would stop or change.
One of Cheneys and Bush's buddies trying to make global warming an "attractive option" so they can make more $ simple as that or the ramblings of
an very sick person.
Just my 2c but ones that are true...
