The Guardian reports that there will be 50 million people displaced by environmental disasters - such as desertification, decreasing water supplies and rising sea levels - by the end of the decade.
That's just people. Imagine the billions of animals and plants displaced or simply wiped out in this process too.
What most informed and well-educated people with Internet access don't seem to realise, is that this figure will increase until there are 6 billion people displaced by environmental disaster. But hey, as long as you have your air-conditioned, 6-litre, 24-valve, SUV and your bullet-proof, non-shatter, anti-glare windows ... you're all right baby. Just drive over the poor, that way you don't have to deal with them.
