this is worrying stuff. it's not like we are going to get flooded tomorrow (though many people have recently been flooded) but future generations are gonna be proper fucked. if you are a parent and think you might have a load of ancestors, start investing in super-domes which can be built over cities.
you know, the cancer and all from the sun. in a century or two from now, going outside and enjoying the sunshine will be dangerous as shit and totally out of fashion. super-domes bro. on stilts.
http://www.theguardian.com/environme...cientists-warnThe collapse of the Western Antarctica ice sheet is already under way and is unstoppable, two separate teams of scientists said on Monday.
The glaciers' retreat is being driven by climate change and is already causing sea-level rise at a much faster rate than scientists had anticipated.
The loss of the entire western Antarctica ice sheet could eventually cause up to 4 metres (13ft) of sea-level rise, devastating low-lying and coastal areas around the world. But the researchers said that even though such a rise could not be stopped, it is still several centuries off, and potentially up to 1,000 years away
wow, stuff like this seems short-sighted:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-27393805The government has unveiled proposals to limit the subsidies paid to large solar farms from next April.
Owners of installations bigger than 5 megawatts (MW) will have to compete with other renewables for financing.
The Department of Energy & Climate Change (Decc) says it wants to encourage the development of smaller scale and community energy production.
Campaigners have condemned the move, saying it will undermine investor confidence in the renewable sector.
