The envy of less happier lands
Climate change ‘will lead to warfare over food and water’ - Times Online
It was “almost certain” that, by 2050, droughts, food shortages and flooding would lead to the mass movement of up to 200 million environmental refugees...with many of them heading for Britain, according to the paper, An Uncertain Future: Law Enforcement, National Security and Climate Change for the Oxford Research Group...security services would be challenged increasingly by the number of refugees, and the Government would need to consider stronger border controls. Protests against companies that continued to emit greenhouse gases were possible as climate change intensified and they might even provoke riots.
In other parts of the world the pressures caused by global warming, particularly through changes in rainfall patterns and the disappearance of glaciers, would provoke wars over agriculture and water rights.
No need to worry, they won't make it past the turbines, they will be sliced and diced by the tens of thousands of blades; this sceptred isle, this earth of majesty, this seat of Mars, this precious stone set in the silver sea, filled with whirring whirligigs which serve it in the office of a wall or as a moat defensive to a house, against the envy of less happier lands,--
This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England.
