Truth telling as ever.
It\’s an apocalyptic view of the future, a stark warning to Spain of what the country could look like if action is not taken to reduce the effects of climate change.
The warning comes in a book, Photoclima, launched this week by Greenpeace in which images of some of Spain\’s most emblematic places have been altered to show what they could look like in the future.
Perhaps the most dramatic image is that of La Manga de Mar Menor in Murcia, where hotels and apartment blocks abut the Mediterranean. In a few decades, according to Greenpeace, most of this will be underwater.
Really? A few decades? We\’re talking, what, 5 -10 cm rise in (to be generous) the next 40-50 years? That\’s enough to put the place underwater?
According to the group\’s director in Spain, Juan López de Uralde, the intention was not to use "scientific rigour" but to "create alarm and a call to action".
Ah, sorry, I misunderstood. I hadn\’t realised that you would admit that you were lying.
