This is what scientists are predicting, in just four decades if the world warms by only 4°C according to New Scientist magazine. In fact, about the only thing they don’t agree on is when it will happen, with many believing it could be as soon as 2050. Peter Cox of the University of Exeter, who studies climate systems, says: “Climatologists tend to fall into two camps.
The new predictions have come after claims that we are well behind stemming global warming. Most scientists believe that nowhere near enough is being done to adhere to the cuts needed.
While they say we need to make cuts of 75 per cent in our emissions over the next decade, globally we are actually increasing our outputs by three per cent. All of the world’s major deserts are predicted to expand, with Africa’s Sahara reaching right into central Europe, while we would see Europe’s rivers drying up, from the Danube to the Rhine.


Former NASA scientist James Lovelock, one of the UK’s most highly regarded environmentalists, says: “Everything in that region will be growing like mad.
The world’s population would relocate to the coolest regions — including Britain, Scandinavia, Russia, Canada, Greenland, New Zealand and North Australia. Human survivors’ diet will be mostly vegetarian — as the seas become acidic with higher amounts of dissolved carbon dioxide killing off most marine life.
Similar temperature rises occurred 55million years ago, when vast quantities of methane bubbled explosively from the deep ocean, filling the atmosphere with carbon and wiping out sea life.
The planet’s temperature rocketed almost 6°C, sea levels rose 330ft higher than today’s and desert stretched from southern Africa into Europe.
Sadly we have no survival lessons to learn from it — mankind didn’t develop on the planet until quarter of a million years ago. Nobel prize-winning scientist Paul Crutzen says: “I would like to be optimistic that we will survive but I’ve got no good reason to be.


Venice, New Orleans and Holland will be underwater, while tigers and lions will have been eaten – by the ten per cent of mankind that is still left! There are the cautious ones who say we need to cut emissions and won’t even think about high global temperatures — and there are the ones who tell us to run for the hills because we’re all doomed. But if the planet warms by only an average of 4°C — as it might this century — it will change beyond all recognition.
