Catastrophic flooding across western Europe as politicians blame climate change - BBC News

Publicerades den 16 jul 2021
More than 120 people have died and hundreds are still missing after record rainfall caused the worst flooding in parts of Western Europe for many decades.

In Germany dozens of people were unaccounted for, with the Chancellor Angela Merkel describing the floods as a catastrophe.

Torrential rain has also devastated parts of Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg.

Survivors have described the terrifying speed at which water levels rose.

Some politicians in Germany say the extreme weather is the result of global warming and they're calling for more urgent action to counter climate change.

Clive Myrie presents BBC News at Ten reporting - from Jenny Hill in Erftstadt, Germany - Anna Holligan in the Dutch town of Valkenberg - and chief environment correspondent Justin Rowlatt on the threat posed by climate change.

  • It is nature. It has been like this before you was born, so that is why you keep hearing the say.... I have never seen nothing like this. Its the Government way to tax you more because they are putting the blame on everyone.

  • It's our fault. It's our sins who do this. The sins of our fathers. The sins of us. We are responsible. We do this to ourselves. Will we repair for our sins? Or will we destroy ourselves and where we walk even more? Our sins!

  • 7% yearly reduction in Co2 means poverty for the middle class within the decade, the elite however will keep flying their private jets and helicopters laughing at us while we pay them carbon taxes.

  • I don't blame climate change, I blame the governments. Their ideas they think are good only make things worse. Electric cars don't help, nuclear power plants don't help, and above all politicians don't help. Don't blame mother nature. Start blaming Biden, Xi and all the other dumbasses who've made the world a living hell.

  • Politicians blame climate changes while they are the ones fixing heavy taxes for the industrial sectors to pay. Now for the industrial sectors to gain more they also pollute more to cover their deficits. Now this is the devastating result in front of u which is totally demoralizing abi nkwasiafu😏 ?...... 🍁

  • These are the side effects of negligence practiced for decades, we are going down the hill 😵We are way too late to change anything, unless these greedy a** capitalist give up their thirst for money or learn better methods of waste disposal.

  • The main cause is climate change due to continued emission of greenhouse gasses which consequently meltdown the glaciers and ice in Antarctica. This increases the volume of water in the streams and lakes. If streams are not well restored, severe flooding like this happen. NB: The above is My Opinion

  • Mongolia has carried out terrorist attacks using coronavirus biological and chemical weapons around the world, killing 4,000,000 people, disrupting the health of millions and disrupting the international economy! and Mongolia, in collaboration with meteorologists, is killing people and damaging the economy through natural disasters such as lightning, earthquakes, torrential rains and floods! The last two examples are the floods in the European Union and China. Mongolia needs to compete with the rest of the world on the right path of development! Mongolia warns to stop terrorism and sabotage!
