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

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.

  • hello everyone! these events are happening because we are nearing the final moments before Jesus returns. I just wanted to let you all know that Jesus loves you so much and He died that you might except Him. I pray over each and everyone of you that if you were hungry to know who God is that you will seek Him and He will answer your call. I hope you all have a blessed night or morning and I wish all His blessings upon your life. God will happily bless those that follow Him and do His will. God bless all of you!

  • Whether or not you agree or disagree with climate change is irrelevant. We need to be taking better care of the planet than we are. Governments and big business need to be accountable for what they are doing. People need to stop being hypocrites and buying the latest gadget every year etc. etc.

Do you understand what happens to energy prices when it becomes a scarce commodity? Do you understand that power is what our economies run off in ALL sectors. You are obviously clueless about the carbon trading banks how they are going to work and who set them up too.

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.
