MP’s could drown

If Global Warming is an undoubted fact and, as such, is embedded in all relevant Government policy decisions, how soon can we expect to see Parliament, Whitehall and Government archives moved to higher ground.
I suggest somewhere nearer the centre of the country.

Unfortunately, the latest predictions give a mere one metre rise over the next Century (http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2009/01/090108101629.htm) and this would only seriously affect the area’s east of the Blackwall tunnel (http://flood.firetree.net/).

However, MP’s might like to consider the effect of a breech getting into the Tube train tunnels. Besides potential flooding of a vital service, there’s also all the archive and Civil Defence storage facilities to consider. Engineers might also like to do an assessment of the effect on surface structures, as the whole of London is sitting in an Artesian basin, with problems for supplies of drinking water and land movement.

Still I suppose the Government’s on top of all that.

    There might be global warming or cooling but the important issue is whether we, as a human race, can do anything about it.

    There are a host of porkies and not very much truth barraging us everyday so its difficult to know what to believe.

    I think I have simplified the issue in an entertaining way on my blog which includes some issues connected with climategate and “embarrassing” evidence.

    In the pipeline is an analysis of the economic effects of the proposed emission reductions. Watch this space or should I say Blog

    PS The term “porky” is listed in the Australian Dictionary of Slang.( So I’m told.)

      I don’t believe that it is in our hands. Just one volcanic eruption does more than we can do to affect climate plus our contribution to greenhouse gases is minimal compared to the world’s population of termites. Ungulates, such as cows, also produce a large proportion.
      For me the real problem is that we will soon run out of fossil fuels. That will end the Global warming debate, as our present Society will collapse unless we find alternative energy sources. At present the only viable one is the nuclear option.
