In the Civ2 manual, it says:

"Global warming might occur at any time that at least nine map squares, anywhere in the world, are polluted. The probability that it will occur increases with the length of time contamination on this scale is left untreated."

Does anybody know roughly what the probability is? In the game I'm playing now, I'm on my second turn with more than nine squares polluted, and won't be able to get back under nine polluted squares until next turn (or worse, if additional squares get polluted next turn).

In the Civ2 Great Library, there is an excellent thread explaining the probability of a square becoming polluted, but doesn't say anything about the probability of global warming.

I'll confess I didn't start cleaning the pollution as soon as it started, if the polluted squares were not being worked or if the loss from pollution was only one trade arrow - it seemed more effective to use the engineers elsewhere. Then suddenly there were two turns with each adding a lot of new pollution and I was over the nine squares mentioned in the manual...

How bad is it if global warming happens? Will it necessarily make me much worse off, as it will affect all countries?
