Or, perhaps an all inclusive anthropogenic global chaos--better to be safe than sorry. But the important question is, Will "we the people", still be held responsible/accountable? And therefore, of course, subject to the imposition of extra taxing, tracking--consumption, population, "footprint"--and toiling. Keep in mind, anthropogenic is the key word, here.

Since the NOAA, back in 2011, projected higher temperatures and reduced sea ice, northern Arctic ice has increased by 29% from 2012 to 2013, despite some 2007 reports claiming the Arctic would be ice-free by the summer of 2013. Even the latest data shows Antarctic sea ice is more than two standard deviations above normal.
To be sure, the powers that be will not give up so easily, as there is too much money and too much power at stake.
