Anarchy is Coming

"A secret report prepared by the Pentagon warns that climate change may lead to global catastrophe costing millions of lives and is a far greater risk than terrorism, a British weekly has said.

The report was ordered by an influential US Pentagon adviser but was covered up by "US defence chiefs" for four months, until it was "obtained" by The Observer.


"Some examples given of probable scenarios in the dramatic report include:

Britain will have winters similar to those in Siberia as European temperatures drop off radically by 2020.

By 2007, violent storms will make large parts of the Netherlands uninhabitable and lead to a breach in the aqueduct system in California that supplies all water to densely populated southern California.

"Catastrophic" shortages of potable water and energy will lead to widespread war by 2020."
