    By the year 2080, Manhattan and Shanghai could be underwater, droughts and floods could become more extreme and hundreds of millions of people will be at risk from disease, starvation and water shortages.

    That is the picture that a Greenpeace senior official painted of the future if the world failed to take urgent steps to curb greenhouse gas emissions and limit global warming (news - web sites).

    "We're talking of about the submergence of islands, submergence of Shanghai, the submergence of Bombay, the submergence of New York City," Greenpeace climate policy director Steve Sawyer told Reuters late on Friday.

    "Manhattan would be under water."

    Now, I am the last guy to discount global warming but 2080? Come on now. Doesn't Greenpeace realize their credibility goes bah-bye with something like this?
