Will our appearance change significantly?

Now global warming has taken affect, do you think that in a certain number of years we will have evolved or adapted and our appearance will change significantly?

  1. Hi Megan. No, though humans will have to adapt more and more to changes in climate we are unlikely to see any big change in our appearance. Humans are very good at adapting to extremes of climate and so there is rarely enough selection pressure to greatly change the gene pool that survives through to future generations. That said, if you live in the UK you can expect more sunshine in the Summer in decades to come (less cloud), so there will be more people walking around with lobster-red sunburnt faces.
