    If this were to ever happen (it’s unlikely but entirely possible) Canada would either join the United States and become a state of America would annex Canada.

    Total bullpies. Global warming is real but areas do not just turn into deserts because they're hot. The Amazon rainforest agrees

    Your videos about country or region specific geopolitical issues are really good but this one is just a very far stretch of imagination. Even with anthropogenic interference, this rate of desertification is simply impossible.

    Alternatively titled, "Let's take the worst most unrealistic possible scenario for climate change and elaborate on it". I guess if you take it as fiction it's fun, but you all certainly didn't highlight the fictional narrative. But of course if somehow the earth managed to get +4C (+7F) warmer, which is massive, bad things would happen. Do water world next!!!

    The only oversight here is that millions of species of plant and animal will go extinct, even ones in the ‘green habitable areas’ because they can’t cope with the new temperatures. So there would be ecological collapse, oceans would have fewer fish and 7 billion people would be crammed into what’s left of Earth. The ‘habitable areas’ would be trashed. By humans and there would be no nature left

    I see a lot of people are dismissing this as garbage, and without context, it is. The original title of this video was "What if the world got 4 degrees warmer", but I guess that wouldn't fly. Here's the real version: this is probably maybe what would happen if the earth got that much warmer and continued to maintain a similar or warmer temperature... For centuries. Nothing noticeable to us humans is even predicted to happen until 2100 at our current pace, and it does not include deserts, acid rains, the atmosphere spontaneously combusting, or whatever else the whining about us going extinct due to climate change includes. It's amusing to watch how these people flail about without realizing the timescale of these things. We're more likely to either blow ourselves up or have colonies on extraterrestrial bodies by the time any of this would actually impact us to any meaningful degree. Unless it's Africa. Then again, it's always shit down there.

    If Earth's temperatures rise by 4 degrees, the methane ice at the bottom oceans will melt, resulting in a further 4 degree increase, so none of this is essentially correct or matters. Recalculate this estimate.

    I'm not a climate or physical geography expert, but this scenario seems unlikely. When ice sheets melt, it would just expose bare rock, not arable land, right? Also, let's say that in 100 years the Southern US & Mexico become as hot as the Amazon is today. Why then would the US and Mexico become a desert and not a humid tropical climate? If the world has more liquid water and more tropical temperatures, why would so many new deserts form? Once again, I'm no scientist or researcher, but this video is really counterintuitive.
