No prizes for guessing that we are doomed. What remains to be worked out with the Government’s usual meticulous attention to irrelevant fine detail, is exactly how this doom will be managed and by which quango. According to Nearly Headless, if we continue on our perilous path of global environmental vandalism, the planet could become up to 5%C warmer within a hundred years. The last ice age was triggered by a drop of 5%C, so that sounds quite serious. Up to forty per cent of animal and plant species could become extinct. Unfortunately these would probably not include cockroaches or leylandii though. Around 200 million people might be displaced by floods or droughts or both but these would all be in poor countries so of no real concern.
