Catastrophic climate change will see London disappear beneath the waves of melting arctic ice-caps within the coming decades, warns a new report.

Current predictions of how fast the polar ice-caps are melting are too low, with London way behind on the construction of adequate tidal defence systems.

Temperatures in warming oceans around Greenland and Antarctica will raise the by up to 2C, with sea levels rising by three feet as a result, said the University of Arizona

    J.G. Ballard had the idea first with his science fiction novel ‘The Drowned World’ in 1962. London as a tropical swamp full of alligators.

  2. Dave N says:

    That slope of sea-level rise towards the end of the “few decades” is apparently going to be incredibly steep..

  3. Kaboom says:

    One wonders if the predictions were so dire if the scientists in question were located in a state with a lower average annual temperature .. like North Dakota.

    Ray Stevens global warming song:

    I am all for a repeat of the fifth labour of Hercules, which the photograph appears to suggest. The Thames flushes out all the scheming politicians from the Houses of Parliament. Works for me, except the treacherous bastards would have already fled the capital, back to their ill-gotten mansions.

  6. They don’t say what the likelihood of “waves of melting arctic ice-caps ” is. How many “arctic ice-caps” are there? Must be quite a few for them to come in waves.

    “That is according to the University of Arizona, based on studies using 19 climate models”
    – if they had the science “settled” there’d be only ONE model.

    I believe that some “apparent” mistakes are actually quite deliberate. Here we have “Temperatures in warming oceans around Greenland and Antarctica will raise the” “by up to 2C,(…)”

    Can anyone suggest any words that would make a meaningful and possibly true phrase? I can’t.

    I believe that some “apparent” mistakes are actually quite deliberate. Here we have “Temperatures in warming oceans around Greenland and Antarctica will raise the” _[missing words here]_ “by up to 2C,(…)”

    Can anyone suggest any words that would make _that_a meaningful and possibly true phrase? I can’t.
