What will happen to Earth?

Earth in Billion Years

What will happen to the Earth? 

In about a billion years time, the sun's increasing brightness will blast the Earth to the point that all complex life forms will die.

The oceans will vanish until there are only two ponds left at the Earth's poles which become the last havens of life on our planet.

In about one billion years, the solar luminosity will be 10% higher than at present. This will cause the atmosphere to become a "moist greenhouse", resulting in a runaway evaporation of the oceans.

It is beleived that "In about a billion years, it will be 47 degrees celsius on average. The atmosphere will turn into a moist greenhouse and the oceans will evaporate"

Pockets of liquid water may still exist at the Earth's poles which will probably become the last bastions of life on Earth.
