GERALD FLEMING ON RTE LAST NIGHT

Did anyone see the special programme last night on Rte? I thought it was very much ott by showing large parts of Cork and Dublin flooded in 30 years time. Places uninhabitable in 30 years time is going too far imo!!

Yes climate is changing but come on like for half of Cork city to be under water is without solid foundation (pardon the pun lol)

The OPW walls scheme will make sure that Cork won't be flooded...

Dublin under water .... Seems like we have found a positive aspect of climate change.

When this country is pushing an agenda as hard as this you can be sure it sees pound signs somewhere. Tax,tax,tax and Joe public will be the ones paying.

I wonder did they mention this event from 1954




Did they factor in changes in the built environment? Building on floodplains, re-routing overflow streams, improved drainage especially on higher ground so the water moves faster into the tributaries? Or are they turning what is a civil engineering problem into something else?

I decided not to watch it after the promo showed buses floating down O'Connell st
That's never going to happen in our lifetimes or our children's here
Ridiculous

It was pure drivel, most of it is true but how they presented the facts appeared more like a TY project.

But per a capita we are one of the worst CO2 emmiters in europe but then we don't have nuclear power (if we had it we would still be on of hte worst).

Residental is 9.8% of our emissions so even if we half it you will make sweet fa difference they need to tackle transport, energery and farming.

Server farms are a big culprit as well for producing CO2 and they are on the increase

They just buy carbon offsets. The whole thing is a scam, start to finish.

I don't think Fleming beli3ved it himself.
You had a man who sold his house because it was somewhere around 10m above sea level and thought it was in danger. I wonder did he give it away to the next guy seeing as it was such a lost cause?
Fleming said we will likely see 300 to 400mm rise in levels over to the next 30 years.
That can certainly be Engineered out and is nothing more than what has occurred before for various reasons.
Ironically, we also have towns flooding now due to Environmental bullsh1t.
We have a situation where long maintained rivers are not now getting the maintenance such a dredging due to habitat concerns resulting in reduced flow capacity etc then climate change getting the blame. It's a tax scam for the most part.
