Another brief update

DOOM AGAIN by next year:

A secret report, suppressed by US defence chiefs and obtained by The Observer, warns that major European cities will be sunk beneath rising seas as Britain is plunged into a ‘Siberian’ climate by 2020. Nuclear conflict, mega-droughts, famine and widespread rioting will erupt across the world.

The document predicts that abrupt climate change could bring the planet to the edge of anarchy as countries develop a nuclear threat to defend and secure dwindling food, water and energy supplies. The threat to global stability vastly eclipses that of terrorism, say the few experts privy to its contents.

‘Disruption and conflict will be endemic features of life,’ concludes the Pentagon analysis. ‘Once again, warfare would define human life.’

Climate change ‘should be elevated beyond a scientific debate to a US national security concern’, say the authors, Peter Schwartz, CIA consultant and former head of planning at Royal Dutch/Shell Group, and Doug Randall of the California-based Global Business Network.

An imminent scenario of catastrophic climate change is ‘plausible and would challenge United States national security in ways that should be considered immediately’, they conclude. As early as next year widespread flooding by a rise in sea levels will create major upheaval for millions.

Already, according to Randall and Schwartz, the planet is carrying a higher population than it can sustain. By 2020 ‘catastrophic’ shortages of water and energy supply will become increasingly harder to overcome, plunging the planet into war.

“European cities will be sunk beneath rising seas as Britain is plunged into a ‘Siberian’ climate by 2020.” The DOOM prediction is from fifteen years ago. Duh!

    Wait a second. Britain gets a Siberian climate? Doesn’t that mean that global warming would instead be global cooling? Doesn’t global cooling mean more glaciation? Good! I guess we’ll see that sea level dropping then now won’t we – since more of the planet’s water is tied up in the glacier ice above sea level? It’s a pretty sorry thing when cheap science hypotheses can’t even bother to abide by established scientific facts, confirmed by the historical evidence.

    Remember this is the Grauniad ( So that Siberian could be misspelling of Serbian.

    As an example, this from just the other day:

    Interesting how they were denigrating Bush for calling global warming a hoax.

    15 years later, neither climate nor attitudes have changed.
