The climate change news in 2057

In an interesting piece of creative writing, students from University College Falmouth have written a 4 page supplement for the little known "falmouth packet" describing the sort of newpaper articles we may get in 50 years time if we do nothing about climate change.

Falmouth is a fishing port in the very south west for none UK residents. Having spent many a day in Falmouth in my youth I whole heartedly recommend a visit.

The line is that none of these stories are true ..... yet!
