And we live by the river. Latest climate change news: We're fucked:

Scientists have issued dire warnings about the threat from climate change, predicting average world temperatures will rise by around three degrees by the end of the century, with devastating consequences.

In the UK, rising sea levels could potentially cause huge damage to low-lying areas, including London and coastal and river areas.

It's not all doom and gloom though. The Independent this morning devoted its front page to the news that kids will be given lessons in Climate Change. Great idea. We really wish our own geography lessons had had a little more of this and a lot less of standing up to our knees in freezing water dropping ping pong balls into rivers.

And just to show we show both sides of the climate change debate, here's what the morons have been up to:

The computer consultant is an evangelical Christian who says he believes that a warming planet is "one of the signs" of Jesus Christ's imminent return for Judgment Day.

Dude, Terminator 2 was out ages ago. Jesus has probably got it on DVD by now.

The map of the bloated Thames is from an earlier story in The Telegraph last year.
