    == The blockbuster article that declared, The Uninhabitable Earth; Famine, economic collapse, a sun that cooks us: What climate change could wreak — sooner than you think. By David Wallace-Wells.
    In fact, this article asserts that it is already too late to prevent disaster. Melting of the polar caps is also melting the methane hydrate nodules that are laying on the bottom of the Arctic Ocean, and the methane gas that is released causes 30 times more "greenhouse" heating than carbon dioxide. So even if we all stop driving cars tomorrow, it's still too late to stop the vicious circle. (But we can do things to reduce the extent of the apocalypse.)

    Other future disasters include:

    • Old diseases that have been trapped in Arctic or Antarctic ice for very long periods of time are thawing out and getting loose. And this will happen at the same time as our antibiotics are becoming ineffective because germs have evolved resistance to antibiotics.
    • Heat death. A lot of places will become uninhabitable. "...where humidity routinely tops 90 percent, simply moving around outside when it's over 105 degrees Fahrenheit would be lethal. And the effect would be fast: Within a few hours, a human body would be cooked to death from both inside and out."
    • The end of food. Humans and wildlife won't be the only things dying from heat and dehydration — so will the crops.
    • Unbreathable air. Super-heated smog is deadly.
    • Perpetual war. People will fight over everything from cooler lands to oil, food, and water.
    • Permanent Economic Collapse. No way can our petroleum-powered industrial society keep on doing business as usual. International trade won't happen. Dying people don't have much money.
    • Poisoned oceans. Overheat the oceans, and they emit poisonous clouds of sulphur gas that kill everything. There are already two such dead zones off of the coast of Africa now.
    • The Great Filter — Ostrich-style blindness to what is happening will prevent us from doing anything good until it's too late.
