There could be trouble ahead .....

.... according to this from today's Indy. Yes, its full of that nasty little word 'could', but ......

"As many as one billion people could lose their homes by 2050 because of the devastating impact of global warming"

"Hundreds of millions could be forced to go on the move because of water shortages and crop failures in most of Africa, as well as in central and southern Asia and South America"

"Rising sea levels could also cause havoc, with coastal communities in southern Asia, the Far East, the south Pacific islands and the Caribbean seeing their homes submerged."

Sounds like a pretty bleak outlook, doesn't it?
