Monday morning environews:

* Pentagon to Bush: climate change will destroy us.

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.

The document predicts that abrupt climate change could bring the planet to the edge of anarchy as countries develop a nuclear threat to defend and secure dwindling food, water and energy supplies. The threat to global stability vastly eclipses that of terrorism, say the few experts privy to its contents.

Worse even than the boogeyman! Too bad we’ve sat on our hands for the last seven years.

* Meanwhile, in local news, Tennessee and Georgia get ready to go to the mattresses over water rights to the Tennessee River.

* And the “They talked about global cooling in the ’70s!” meme officially bites the dust.
