Today is World Environment Day so let us take a moment to talk about a climate change study that warns that 90% of humans will perish by 2050, and the funny thing is that the study says that that is the most optimistic scenario. The study “errs on the side of least drama.”

The predicted 3°C rise in temperatures will result in a 0.5m rise in sea levels, dooming coastal cities like Mumbai, Lagos and Shanghai and reducing such places to swamplands. Many of the 10% who do survive will be climate refugees, forced to relocate to safer areas.

You might think this study is a gross exaggeration – even I’m not fully buying it – but if we don’t use our collective minds and technology to save us, then we won’t stand a chance against the forces of climate change.
