Just to start off: climate change isn’t a hoax and it’s a very real thing. Summers are getting hotter and winters are getting colder, and at this point I doubt there’s much we can do to stop the upcoming catastrophe that will inevitably follow. We can slow it down, sure, but we won’t stop it.
And since everyone’s better off prepared, let’s take a look at some of the things that will happen once the polar caps melt.
Ocean Level Rises
Seems a bit obvious, doesn’t it? All that melted ice has to go somewhere, and where else is there to go but the ocean?
Extreme Weather Will Continue
If you’re currently living in Western Europe, where the drought can be seen from outer space, get ready for more of it! Hotter summers, colder winters, heavier storms. It’s all coming!
People Will Have To Relocate
Apart from the obvious people – the ones in the Arctic – people in coastal regions will probably also have to relocate due to the rising ocean levels. It could even be so extreme that Miami and Shanghai could be entirely wiped off the map.
