If you think this has anything to do with global warming, then you are sadly misguided. One of the main reasons for the unprecedented levels of flooding affecting this country is the unprecedented levels of building especially on the flood plains. Our country cannot cope with the unprecedented level of population growth, most of it artificial and unneeded.
