Weather of mass destruction

When Tony Blair says he scared of something these days, it's a little hard to take him seriously. That is, unless he's scared of the effects of global warming for which there is some actual (as opposed to imaginary) evidence.

The tsunami in the Indian Ocean, of course, had nothing to do with global warming. But, it pointed out the vulnerability of low-lying islands and shorelines to rising sea levels and to extreme weather that can bring large waves and tidal surges.

Weather of mass destruction is only part of the worry as this piece via Common Dreams discusses.
