It should be safe to say that the same imagery will resurface again and again in the future, like the 2012 doomdsday. Some crackpots can be imaginative in painting a scary future and a non-existent past. The important thing for them is that planet Earth will end... soon... or the soonest time possible. They must be watching a lot of zoombie movies and Al Gore fiction documentaries?
This will happen also in 2100? Or 200 years away? Well, GISS' James Hansen wrote in February 15, 2009: "If we burn all fossil fuels, we will destroy the planet we know. Carbon dioxide would increase to 500 ppm or more. We would set the planet on a course to the ice-free state, with sea level 75 metres higher...." (from The Guardian UK)
75 meters rise in sea level! We should indeed be scared and worried. Be very worried. Thanks to the UN and many governments for reminding us.
