The end is nigh!



"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.' The report was commissioned by influential Pentagon defence adviser Andrew Marshall, who has held considerable sway on US military thinking over the past three decades. He was the man behind a sweeping recent review aimed at transforming the American military under Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld. 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. ... 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.... Randall added that it was already possibly too late to prevent a disaster happening. 'We don't know exactly where we are in the process. It could start tomorrow and we would not know for another five years,' he said. 'The consequences for some nations of the climate change are unbelievable. It seems obvious that cutting the use of fossil fuels would be worthwhile.'. ... The fact that Marshall is behind its scathing findings will aid [Presidential candidate John] Kerry's cause. Marshall, 82, is a Pentagon legend who heads a secretive think-tank dedicated to weighing risks to national security called the Office of Net Assessment. Dubbed 'Yoda' by Pentagon insiders who respect his vast experience. . . Symons said the Bush administration's close links to high-powered energy and oil companies was vital in understanding why climate change was received sceptically in the Oval Office. 'This administration is ignoring the evidence in order to placate a handful of large energy and oil companies,' he added."
Now the Pentagon tells Bush: climate change will destroy us
Observer, 22 February 2004

You don't get out much do you? Let's say (for one brief moment) that half of the environmental, economic or doomsday "theories" you post have the potential to occur, shouldn't you be out enjoying life rather than pondering its potential end?

Cities developed in coastal areas because ports were of vital importance to trade. It costs less to manufacture all your exports as close as possible to the outbound ports. I fear it will not be seen as profitable to move all this infrastructure away from the coasts to higher ground in time to avoid the floods.

i know the sun will eventually expand to cover earth's current position. Of course the earth will be gone before then, and it won't be able to sustain life waaaaay before that.

This is all a long long time from now. But it's sad to think all of earth will disappear one day. There will never be another earth. There might never be life again.

No more humans; all our culture, technology, ideas, thoughts, feelings will disappear for good, and there will probably never be another human race again.
