The second scenario is known as “Hothouse Earth.” In it, temperatures would be irreversibly warmer than pre-industrial levels, by 4 to 5 degrees Celsius or 7 to 9 degrees Fahrenheit.

Both the Driftless Farm Pit Greenhouse and the Passive Solar Community Greenhouse uses fans and pipes to blow warm air into the ground below the greenhouse to store the heat in the earth, and when there’s need for warmth they can reverse the fans and pull that heat back into the greenhouse.

A "greenhouse Earth" is a period in which there are no continental glaciers whatsoever on the planet, the levels of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases (such as water vapor and methane) are high, and sea surface temperatures (SSTs) range from 28 °C ( °F) in the tropics to 0 °C (32 °F) in the polar regions.

A study published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences shows that there is a risk of Earth entering “Hothouse Earth” conditions where the climate in the long term will stabilize at a global average of °C higher than pre-industrial temperatures and sea level m higher than today.
