Alien Future: How the warming climate may produce an unrecognizable world

There have been many reports based on scientific studies, which speak of the long-term effects of climate change, such as increased greenhouse gas emissions, and temperatures and sea levels, until 2100.

The Paris accord, for example, commits us to holding warming to less than 2.0 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels by the end of the century.

Since 1990, our progress has been assessed every few years using the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) scientific assessment reports and associated special reporting bodies.

Studies are evaluating existing research findings to give us a clue about where we stand, what we need to do between now and 2100 to reach our goals, and what might happen if we don’t.

Whilst our results are based on a climate model, they fall within the area of forecasting by others, and help estimate the potential impact of climate change over longer time scales.

We have a choice between reducing emissions as a matter of urgency while continuing to adjust to global warming, from which emissions so far have made it impossible for us to escape, or considering life on a completely different Earth from hers.

In order to truly depicd what a low-slowdown and high-temperature world could be compared with what we have seen so far, we used our projections and diverse research findings to create a series of nine paintings spanning a thousand years (from 1500 to 2020, and 2.500 AD), arranged in three major regional landscapes (Amazon, Midwest, and Indian subcontinent).
