Correction: There is in reality a second prediction for 2010

- More poor people to bang on about climate change

The governments of the leading nations have finally come to their senses and accepted what a lot of people have been suggesting for a long time - More poor people need to be seen talking about climate change.

What is the point of a load of rich, privileged celebrities, Presidents, journalists, Prime Ministers and pop stars preaching to the poor about making sacrifices, when the only sacrifices that they themselves intend to make will be taking twenty international flights a year rather than the usual thirty?

No. It is time to act. Adverts showing poor Brits suffering from the effects of global warming are needed now if we are to get the message across. And coming to a screen near you very soon will be scenes of working class Christmases set in deprived council estates, or even deprived suburbs, where the X-Boxes don't work because there is no power, where people cannot watch endless dance competitions because the dance-halls are flooded, and where the only entertainment is witnessing a local stabbing whilst high on crack and cheap Vodka.

Watch this space.

You won't.
