Re: Is the UK going to be washed away??
Sooo just wondering if anyone on here knows what is coming for the UK. Seems North America is getting slammed with the mega cold and snow to extremes but here in the UK the floods are the worst most people have ever known. Is this what is to come? More ice and cold for North America while the UK drowns? will there be anywhere left in the UK not submerged or are we all in for it?
I am on the tip of the land, as far south as can be, down by lands end. waves were over 30 feet today, locals were stunned by it.

I'm inland UK, about as far away from the sea as you can get. Yes we've had a few weather fronts blow through with wind and rain, but no big deal.

Big seas are nothing new to the UK, they happen from time to time. The weather goes in cycles, probably due to sunspots.

Don't believe the bullshit on the TV. Though people (and so the media) are waking up to it, just look at the aerial photos of the flooding... It's ALWAYS on FUCKING huge flood plains that it happens. Flooding has always happened!

They put in a flood relief in one place and it floods elsewhere.

In the "good old days" the river systems employed lock keepers, who's job it was to watch over rivers. These guys had YEARS (and generations) of experience over their patches of rivers. The knew which fields flooded first, and when to open sluice gates. They contacted the next man down stream, who knew the same. Rivers were finely regulated by men of experience. They have sacked all these blokes, sold off the lock keepers houses, and put a few hopeless monitoring systems in place.

Now we fucking build on flood plains. Pave over massive areas remove ditches, farmers insert drainage systems under vast barron fields. We then wonder why these things happen - and blame it onto man made global warming to increase taxes and keep people poor.

It's all BULLSHIT (except for the insurance companies refusing claims / cover)
