Global warming or just another cycle in the Earths life
December 8, 2015
The weather over the last few weeks and the desolation of various parts of the British Isles ,is it down to " Global warming " or just another part of the Earth getting old ????? Governments all over the world are charging extra taxes ,But in the case of the U K they are not spending it where it's needed,for example Kendal and other towns in the Lake District are flooding every 4/5 years . Now I know we can't predict how much rain is going to fall ,But come on guys it's not called the Lake District for nothing ( supplying water to most of the country north of Birmingham) .Over here in Ireland we in Tipperary have or should I say had a problem with flooding in Clonmel and Femoy in Cork ,they the councils did a great job both these towns are now flood free ,OK in some places it doesn't look picturesque But it has done the job ......Seeing that they spent over a billion then the first heavy rainfall floods over 5k homes ( note homes not houses) some of the people effected have been flooded out 3 times in the last 10 years ,move you say Who's going to by a submarine ??? How much have the insurance companies increased the premium to insure (if they can)that's the personal side of this .Now what can the government DO ,for a start they can build defences that do the job , were the money coming from I hear ,the overseas aid 7 billion or there abouts some of it going to countries richer than us ( the saying charity begins at home comes to mind ) also have a better warning system other than the weather man saying " it's going to heavy rain " we have satalites that can read a newspaper from space why not how full/heavy rain filled clouds are in the Atlantic coming our way ??? I'm not saying we should all do a Noah Ark ,if all these scientists are right about the prediction of Global warming are true (jury is still out for me ) and with the history of rainfall documented these defences must be built Now as it will be back in another couple of years ,on a lighter note learn how to swim !!!!!
