    If any species survives it will have a lot of genetic changes. Pretty much the same for chemical or biological weapons. It all gets dispersed over time.

    The potentially too big to solve problems ahead:

    Speed of change - too fast for adaptation.
    Extensive acidification of water and soil. Again, adaptation is very, very limited.

    If there are isolated pockets that escape the latter and are not too hot for plant and animal existence, a few humans and other species may come through. They are likely to remain isolated a long time.

    We need bold action, soon. Politicians are far more cautious than scientists.
