|Part of Climate Wars|
The Second Chinese Civil War was a war fought between the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)-led government of the People's Republic of China and the Chinese separatist forces.
Following the rise of sea level attributed to the loss of the Greenland Ice Sheet, over 100 million people were forced inland. The wealthy heart of Shanghai was spared thanks to one of the world's largest sea walls, but the millions of people who supported the city's rise to prosperity were left to settle in refugee camps. The loss of land to water and the displayed population put even greater strain on China's farmland, which was already suffering from a drought. The Communist regime went through great lengths to hide reports of mass starvation, and attempted to increase benefits to the working poor only to find the Yuan too weak, and tax revenue too atrophied to have any substantive effect. Tensions remained high, but it wasn't until the bursting of the Three-Gorges Dam that destroyed millions of acres of crops and houses along the Yangtze farm belt that the powder keg went off and China entered open rebellion.
