flood defences

Flooding and the environment


Floods 1981
Floods 1981 Our new Prime Minister Gordon Brown, was quick off the mark to mention Climate Change, what we once called Global Warming, when talking about the floods that have affected so much of the UK this 'summer'. It was as if there was no chance that central, local government or any agency had failed in any way, re. flood defences. However, we have seen this trick before. We saw the blame game being played when hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans. But it was later to be established, beyond any doubt, that the flood defence measures of that city had been neglected for some time. This must be very annoying for people in the UK with strong memories of only the upper part of their house fit for occupation, and then only just, due to the strong smell from the water below, and doubly annoying that the playing of this silly game goes on, and on.
