Climate change: 'Adapt or die' warning from Environment Agency
Hundreds of people could die in floods in the UK, the Environment Agency has warned in a hard-hitting report that says the country is not ready for the impact of climate change...
The apocalyptic tone is deliberately intended to startle governments, companies and communities into preparing for global warming effects such as higher sea levels and more extremes of rainfall and drought.
Ignoring the possibility of devastating locust plagues seems to miss a rather obvious opportunity here. For one thing, a locust narrative would be able to employ the term 'biblical' quite legitimately.
To my mind the omission should be corrected in case public alarm levels drop to an alarmingly low level.
