Five Scary Things That Could Happen By 2050


We should avoid them at all costs so we can focus on all the cool stuff we want to happen.

1. ENVIRONMENTAL EXILE

Environmental changes caused by global warming could force millions of people around the world from their homes. A 2014 study noted that even the slightest rise in global temperature (around 3º C) could displace upwards of 600 million people.

2. FLOODING IN COASTAL CITIES

Rising sea levels threaten the livability of coastal cities everywhere. Even the mighty New York City isn’t safe. The chances of storm tides surging over the Manhattan sea wall have gone up by 20%. It used to happen every few hundred years. Now it could happen every four to five.

3. WIDESPREAD FOOD SHORTAGES

Higher temperatures, drought, and erratic weather events are slowing crop yields. AWorld Food Programme report says that food shortages by 2050 could lead to the malnourishment of an additional 20 million kids.

4. DISEASE…..EVERWHERE

Especially diseases spread by insects including Dengue Fever.

5. CYBER and NUCLEAR WARFARE because of the competition between the powerful nations vs the smaller nations.
