The BBC says:

The UK could face major flooding and tropical temperatures by the year 3000 if greenhouse gas emissions are not sharply reduced, a new study says.

The report, from the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, claims Britain could look radically different with sea levels rising as much as 11.4m.

The study was commissioned by the Environment Agency.

However, other researchers cautioned that it was extremely difficult to make climate forecasts so far in advance.

Is this an April Fool's joke? The Environment Agency should have its budget cut if it is going to waste taxpayer's money on such ridiculous studies. It's not as if there is no real research that needs doing.
