Brits a twitter over Chicken Little science report allegedly from Pentagon

The Guardian:

"Climate change over the next 20 years could result in a global catastrophe costing millions of lives in wars and natural disasters..

"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."

Makes you wonder why they are not more excited about Bush's "support" for global warming. Isn't it somewhat presumpteus to conclude that men can control the weather? Why don't we just get to work on making every day a day in paradise. While the Chicken Little's of this world might find the report "humiliating," those of us familiar witht eh way the Pentagon operates suspect it is a scenerio that is being war gamed in preperation for all contingencies. It is much like the plan that probably exist somewhere in the bowels of the Pentagon for the invasion of Briton. It is not that they think they need it, they just want to be ready in case they do.
