Worst case is a planet that is not able to be inhabited by humans. What kind of planning are you proposing for that?
Is that really a possibility? I would think that even with an extremely warmer climate, humans could still live in the far north and far south. And maybe in other regions if they stayed inside buildings with AC most of the time. Come to think of it, maybe that would be necessary in the polar regions as well.
Of course, that would mean a radically different world than we have today and such a would could support a far smaller population than the one we currently have. It would be a very bleak world, but it wouldn't mean human extinction.
Right. Worst case scenario is probably that the planet could no longer support billions of humans.
Bleak, yes, but human extinction is not likely.
