Sinking Britain

The British Coastlines are threatened by erosion by the North Sea, with the nation debating what they can do to hold back the rising tide in their ever-shrinking island. Tilting geology and rising sea levels from global warming add to the problem, while salt marshes are themselves threatened by flood defenses such as sea walls.

This has been happening for thousands of years it's not really a problem to us, this article deserves to be put in the rubbish bin, one side erodes and the other side builds. This really has nothing to do with global warming, there are probably hundreds of examples of global warming but this isn't one of them.

It would help and not hurt if the US got on board with the reality of climate change.

Unfortunately people who live along coastlines all over the planet are being affected. With rising sea levels many other countries are experiencing the same tragedy. Some islands that are close to sea level will disappear entirely. We live on an ever changing planet and will not be able to prevent the changes to come, only delay them somewhat.

Scientists have been warning us of the catastrophic effects of climate change for about 30 years, so what humanity will be dealing with in the coming years isn't going to be pretty.

That would never do...not f....politicly correct!
