The Daily Mirror goes to new lengths of absurdity:
A chilling new map has revealed how parts of the UK will be left underwater in a matter of decades as climate change causes sea levels to rise.
Major areas such as Liverpool, London and Humberside could be left completely submerged as early as 2100, according to research from Climate Central.
Most scientists agree that climate change is melting polar ice sheets, adding significant amounts of water to the world’s oceans.
A detailed new study has revealed how low-lying coastal areas across the world are now at risk of being completely flooded.
Vast swathes of Britain could be wiped out by the encroaching waters which are represented by a terrifying red block.
Cardiff, Swansea and north Wales, east Yorkshire and Hull, Peterborough and Norfolk, and the coast from Lancaster to Liverpool could be submerged in just 80 years time – unless urgent action is taken immediately.
Some 3.6 million people in Britain would face annual flooding and up to 5.4 million by 2100 if carbon emissions continue unchecked.
Coastal defences would need developing at great cost to protect householders from floods.
Climate Central found that if temperatures went up 4°C from pre-industrial levels the seas could rise by as much as 10.8 metres.
Sea level rise of 10.8 metres? Really?
Meanwhile, back in the real world, sea levels have been rising at a rate of about 7 inches a century since the 19thC, and have barely risen at all in the last two decades:
I see that the Mirror does not even dare to have comments on this article. I wonder why?
