Global Warming

I've been trying to embed a video into my blog, and I can't work out how to do it, so here's the YouTube link:
The video is not particularly good, but I've been trying to research what the world would be like "after Global warming", as it were. This is all part of my world-building exercise for Inter Vivos. Does anyone know anywhere I can get some good "after" information from? I'm specifically interested in the effects on the Mediterranean.

Urgh. Inter Vivos isn't going so well at the moment. The first few chapters are pants, but I don't know what to do or how to start it to make it all better. Can I just start at chapter three and tell the rest in retrospect? My brain hurts.

Hmm, that book sounds interesting, but it seems to suppose that humans just sort of disappear one day, which is not really useful in this context. I need to find info about what would happen if climate change got to a state where the ice caps melted - that sort of thing.
But thanks for looking!

The answer to your last question is yes, you can start at chapter three. I haven't had this trouble with chapters so much as paragraphs or scenes of a script - I rack my brain trying to think of a nice intro, then give up and start somewhere down the line at a place I'm surer of, then find it doesn't need anything else in front of it after all.

Of course you can take this too far and cut straight to "They all lived happily ever after", which some post-modernist or other probably did once.
