And predictably we have money grabbing politicians piling in to declare it must be so and we'll spend your cash on a snark hunt because it's not your money but ours to do with what we want.
Climate change is now an issue of national security with extreme weather threatening homes, livelihoods and businesses, Ed Miliband has warned.Pretty much all a pack of lies, the flooding in the Somerset levels was a result of an EU environmental diktat which meant the silt from the channels couldn't be put back on the land so the UK government via the environment agency decided not to bother. In essence it was environmentalists who caused the flooding there by adding into the EU diktat a set of conditions that could not be economically met.
In an interview with the Observer, the Labour leader said the country was sleepwalking towards a crisis.
This, he said, was because of a failure to recognise that climate change was causing the storms and floods.
His comments come as flooding is still expected in many parts of the country despite a let-up in the stormy weather.
There are 14 severe flood warnings - indicating a "danger to life" - for south-east England close to the River Thames and two for the Somerset Levels, which have experienced weeks of flooding.
As for climate change causing the flooding, well as usual Millipede E has jumped the gun...
One of the Met Office’s most senior experts yesterday made a dramatic intervention in the climate change debate by insisting there is no link between the storms that have battered Britain and global warming.In other words just bad luck and piss poor flood defences coupled with building on a flood plain.
Mat Collins, a Professor in climate systems at Exeter University, said the storms have been driven by the jet stream – the high-speed current of air that girdles the globe – which has been ‘stuck’ further south than usual.
Professor Collins told The Mail on Sunday: ‘There is no evidence that global warming can cause the jet stream to get stuck in the way it has this winter. If this is due to climate change, it is outside our knowledge.’
You can be sure the warmist enviroloons will ignore the Met Office as Professor Collins views will be ignored in their rush to try and prove their point and grab more cash off us.
Sadly this lack of ethics is something we've come to expect from the watermelons as well as the Labour party.
It's all a cash grab and will be wasted on stuff we neither want nor need...
