Adapting to Climate Change

Dutch whalers successfully adapted to the Little Ice Age, and even improved their business.  Sometimes people adapt quite well to it.  After all, everything we have now is built on the collapse of everything from the last actual Ice Age.  But a collapse is still the most likely result to overwhelming disaster.

Also, nothing we do now can halt global warming, melting ice caps, or the flooding out of most coastal cities -- unless we invent technology indistinguishable from magic.  That's happened in the past, with things like fire and steel, but it doesn't happen often.
