Welcome to mankind's future. The natural re-wilding of lowlands by repeated storm damage of human infrastructure until the sea covers your costal cities. Leaving one path to modern societies survival. Adopting cooperative, sustainable technologies, enabling mass migration to higher ground, as this movement will entail a complete rebuilding of society and there will be neither time nor resources available for conflict, for the endeavor will require every aspect of cooperation humanity can muster.

‎"Why should there be hunger and deprivation in any land, in any city, at any table, when man has the resources and the scientific know-how to provide all mankind with the basic necessities of life?"
~Martin Luther King, Jr.
