Project for the climate conference COP21 in Paris

Can we imagine how Earth will be in ten years?

If we will continue using fossil fuels, observing and ignoring global warming and consuming natural resources, in ten years Earth will probably be a little different...

Looking at pictures of Venus, whose temperature is over 300° C due to the greenhouse effect, I thought about future.
What might a satellite orbiting around the Earth see in 2025, if we do not start a decisive climate action?

The images are obtained by superimposing pictures of Venus (specified in the captions) on pictures of the Earth, with ratio of about 30% to 60%.
