Environmental change.

The planet's environment has always been changing. Species move. Species out-compete other species. Humans adapt.


For argument's sake, let's say the doomsday oracles are right - that humans are 100% to blame for global warming and sea levels will rise dramatically in the next 50 years. Humans will adapt and move. Economic disturbance, yes - but massive agony and suffering, no. Eventually the evidence will be overwhelming and the developing nations like China that are in a phase of rapid automobilization will come to the table and hash things out.

There'll be lots of anguished hand-wringing and abrasive protests at international meetings though. Yay drama.
