Professor Bill McGuire, Benfield UCL Hazard Research Centre
Whilst the 2007 report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change paints a pretty bleak picture of the future, the scariest thing about it is that it may not be scary enough. New research points not only to higher temperatures, bigger storms and more floods, but to a world in which melting polar ice drowns coastal towns ands cities across the planet, and the crust itself joins in with more earthquakes, submarine landslides, tsunamis and volcanic eruptions. Is this a world we wish to bequeath to our children and their children? If not, we may have less than 10 years to do something about it.
