There would be alot of burning, and alot less water. We'd probably all die off quickly, but the indigenous peoples will be able to tolerate the heat, and will survive, progressing to the next stage of human evolution.

However, the very rich and influential will be able to survive as well, stealing shelter and water from the working class. These rich people will stay in the current evolutionary state because they encountered less of an adaptive problem.

As both factions -- Rich and Improved -- repopulate, they will eventually rub shoulders. This may end in war or peace, depending on wether the Rich develop a dogma saying that Improved aren't true humans and thus must be destroyed.

Well.... wouldn't we be thrown off orbit and be flung to a gory, foul-smelling... burn-y death?

ah, but dave, the rich couldn't all stay rich. the rich need to the poor to be rich. and then we'd lose those ones. and the rich population would steadily decrease.
