The least research documentation I've ever heard. there's other research that says that raising the temperature will create more water evaporation, therefore creating a more lush environment, more carbon dioxide feeding the plant life.

The video premise neglects the impact of technology. There are plenty of desert cities precisely because technology allows them to be there, desalination allows you to water and feed large populations.

I mean this is neat but like as a Dane, we really wouldn't be suitable for such a world. As of now we already deal with problems caused by climate change since us states closer to the poles are the msot affected right now. The change of weather patterns is keeping our farming industry in a dangerous position, with dry periods so long that it can kill several crops and the increasingly more common storm floods which are strong enough to drown the crops, therefore also killing them. You can't count on us buddy, just saying. Also Greenland is slowly seeking independence so...

That map is highly inaccurate there are many more variables like a risen sea level and the increase temperatures causing more regions to have monsoon seasons really making the world more green.

Denis Tyrant

Ok I see many comments saying this video is wrong and they are right. There’s NO way this is possible. Earth has been several times hotter, take Mesozoic era for example. During the Late Cretaceous it was around 27-37 degrees Celsius. That’s way hotter than today. But guess what, there were a lot of forest areas around the world. Heck even places that no longer have them today. So what’s more likely is rising sea levels, stronger storms, and of course melting of ice. So yeah the Amazon might be gone by then, in fact, there’s evidence to support that, since it’s getting drier. We can’t forget about diseases as well. Tropics diseases now can expand their range thx to this warming climate. So yes, soon we can see the Yellow Fever happening in places like Russia. Also the glaciers are important, because they contain some unknown virus. And not to mention wildfires, they will be more common. Just imagine the Australian fire, but at a much bigger scale. So the world will be a messed up place. And it’s highly unlikely for us to survive.

When the Earth is warming, the Gulf Stream that is taking warm water from the Caribbean through the American east coast and up to Europe will change, and therefore New York, the United Kingdom and the Nordic countries will actually become colder. Because of that, I don't think that the rest of Europe will become a hot desert either since there are obviously no straight lines between climate zones

Yeah, no. Way too little ocean flooding, way too much desert. A hotter world is a world with more rain on average. It may be more chaotic and in many other ways bad for human society and the speed may be bad for many animals and plants to adapt to quickly, but ultimately a slightly warmer world wouldn't be one of massive desserts, at least not much more than today. Just like it wasn't at all the other times it was that much hotter. Not saying we shouldn't stop worsening climate change asap, but this map is just ridiculous.

This is the stupidest thing ive seen. You're only thinking about temperature and not things like physical geography like mountainous areas that are not fit for agriculture etc. Also, "Denmark is gonna be a superpower because of Greenland". Yeah, like the US is just gonna let that happen right next door. lol

Higher ocean temps can also adversely impact coastal storms. Somewhere like Japan will see higher rainfall/stronger typhoons/longer rainy seasons as the sea of Japan between Japan and Korea warms. They'll get typhoons on all coasts instead of mostly on the Pacific coasts. Cyclones will happen further and further south on the east and west coasts of Australia for a longer season and with more intensity. We're already seeing this happen. It will be less inhabitable, but not because it's a "desert", because of weather events. This is just another thought experiment though: fun to think about but I'm not a climate scientist. They're the ones we should listen to when we make policy decisions in the real world.

wasn't during the time of the dinosaurs up to 4 degrees hotter than today. and the world was covered in rainforests. So how realistic is this really?
Pandamasque Päivä sitten
2 points/corrections. 1. Due to global warming icecaps melt. The influx of freshwater stops the gulf stream. And that currently is the main thing that keeps the British Isles from looking like Denmark or Sweden. So before they become desert, they become really cold. 2. The civilisational success of countries is less determined by their geography than by their social structure and their beliefs and how that fits within the state of the world around them. For example, the biggest thing keeping Russia behind is not geography, it's the Russians. Same goes for many other nations. Those things take a long time to form and to change. Historically civilisations rose and fell not due to climate change.

There are SEVERAL MAJOR problems with this video. One BIG problem with a GREAT DEAL of discussion in this video: Many scientists (increasing numbers of them) believe that the human species is likely to be extinct -- or at least not operating as a civilization -- before we reach 4ºC (above c1850 levels). So it is RIDICULOUS to talk about what human governments or people will be doing at that point: if there are any left, they will be hiding from each other and scavenging for food and shelter. Another BIG problem with this video is the assumption that heat is the only problem... that food supplies won't be broken by heat, erratic weather (floods, etc.), pollution, war... that tundra and permafrost can rapidly become farmland when today's arable lands are deserts... that there will be unpolluted fresh water supplies... that the oceans will not have been overfished or polluted into barrenness by that time... that there will not have been nuclear weapons exchanges as resource wars intensify... that the world's nuclear power facilities won't all (or almost all) be in meltdown as a result of these upheavals... So, again, it is RIDICULOUS to talk about what human governments or people will be doing at that point: if there are any left, they will be hiding from each other and scavenging for food and shelter. As it stands, this video is a huge disservice. I'd like to ask that you take it down, do your homework, put a little more actual thought into what you represent about the future, and then decide whether or not to post again on this topic. Thanks.

Looks like the author didn't factor in rising sea levels. Also missing are the trade winds, El Niño/ la niña cycle which I believe will be worsened by rising sea temperatures. Rising sea levels coupled with higher temperatures would definitely yield a lot more rainfall than this map suggests.

I'm a fan of your videos but I have to dislike this one, there are a lot of flaws in your (technically the book's) reasoning 1) Half the world won't and can never become a desert. -In the case temperatures do rise 4 deg, it will increase global humidity and water vapor levels. Weather patterns will definitely change but the overall effect would be more tropical zones. If you dont believe me, take a look back in history. In the Mesozoic era, Global temps and CO2 levels were higher than today, the resulting climate included tropical rainforests across most of the equator and even at mid latitudes, where drier conditions did exist, they were savannas and not full deserts 2) There will be no mass relocation/migrant crisis because of climate change -The very definition of "climate" is the overall weather conditions over a long of time. In the odd chance climate change does make conditions worse, it will not all happen in 1 year, rather, it will be spread out over time (maybe 20, 50 or 1000 years). Humans do not adapt to change in one generation but they certainly do over many generations as seen with culture, language, population centers. Given it may take many generations to feel the effects, Humans will naturally move, relocate, whatever t suit their needs. It will be done naturally as individuals decide to buy a new home and companies relocate factories. Ask yourself this question: 100 years ago, did the population centers look the same as they are today? No, look at the most populated areas and you'll see how humans have slowly moved for whatever reason (economic, climate, productivity) There was no sudden movement every time there was a drought or flood so why should we expect the same later? 3) Humans don't need perfect conditions to live (at least in the 21st century) -10,000 years ago, if a river dried up, the people around it died. In 2020 however if a river dries up, the people do not simply die, rather they build pipelines, wells, etc to bring the water to them. Imperial valley in California is technically a desert yet it has one of the most fertile farmland in all of California, why is that? They have a canal that supplies all the water they need. Look at Phoenix, temps are sometimes 100F yet its population grows everyday. A/C has eliminated our dependence on good weather and humans will live wherever they can. A change in outside climate will not adversely affect the living conditions of the average home. To add onto this, relocation costs would be too much and cities will find a way to live with what they have. They may build desalination plants, install check valves, use renewables, etc, but they will certainly not move like our ancestors did in the past. We are smarter than that

Yes Climate Change will bring devastating effects to humanity but NO not most of the world will become a desert. There is a lot of misleading factors like global wind. Increase in weather like hurricanes. And other stuff that makes this future earth misleading. Climate Change is very important but saying that earth will become a big desert is not correct.

All of this hypothetical talk of resettlement, truth is, if this happened the few countries lucky enough to have a survivable climate will close their borders off and drift towards authoritarian, if not totalitarian, rule to ensure that national security is in place and that their remaining resources will be kept safe.
