I do think that it will be the end of what we currently know as normal, how much the new world that emerges resembles our current civilization is a big unknown to me. Drougts, storms, famine, war tend to change things regionally but on a global scale and occuring simultaneously? Sounds like the makings of what could be a new "fall of rome" but with much larger scale and more severe. I do not think it bodes well for civilization. One thing is certain, if we continue down this path now we will need massive changes in the ever closer future to make things work.
