Drowning Europe by YNot1989 Drowning Europe by YNot1989
By 2031 the full effects of the Great Deluge had reached Europe. Economies were collapsing left and right, leading to a surge of new members in the EU, with the promise to allow refugees from the rest of the continent to take shelter in their territory. Entire countries came under the jurisdiction of EUFOR to distribute aid to the starving populaces of the British Isles and the new islands in the Baltic Sea.

By 2033 the EU had grown in power significantly, and had managed to get its refugee crisis under control, moving whole populations to develop the new sea walls and vertical farms needed to feed a continent that was near starvation. With the US in the middle of political turmoil, the EU has found themselves in the awkward position of sending their own troops into America's war zones in the Middle East to secure oil and natural gas lines.

Meanwhile in Russia, the country has come under the control of a regime almost as despotic as the old Soviet Union, and has consolidated their union with Belarus. By 2035 the Russians, holding 90% of all refugees from the Baltic states, outright annexes the regions, and deploys troops to the Ukraine to secure strategic interest. EUFOR is deployed on to the other side of the Dnieper Gorge and a tense stand off ensues.

By 2039 the EU has once again been forced to deploy troops abroad, this time to the Greater DC Area in America to secure international interests and keep the world economy from falling into further anarchy. Where once this continent was known for condemning any single power from policing the world, they have now become the global police, and the last democratic power capable of maintaining any order at all.

You are forgetting that as temperatures rise more and more of Scandinavia, Iceland, Canada, Russia and Finland will become more suitable for agriculture.

I cover that in my prime timeline: The Second Renaissance. Things get interesting when people start trying to reverse the effects of climate change and the very rich arctic/subarctic nations are left in economic ruin after years of prosperity.

Is this actually the worst case scenario, where all ice worldwide melts and the sea level rises up to about nearly 100 meters?

Greenland won't exist, lad. It'll be a ring of islands, since, oh, most of it is the ice that's melting.

On the other hand, England won't be in any position to torment the Irish any more.
