Storm Dennis has led to hundreds of people to be evacuated from their homes.
“The consequences range from near-term increases in coastal flooding that can damage infrastructure and crops to the permanent displacement of coastal communities.”
Heavier rainfall from storms has been 100% linked to climate change scientists have confirmed. There has been a 1c global increase since the pre-industrial period, although this may not seem a lot, for every 1c increase there is an extra 7% more water in the atmosphere.
“As humanity pollutes the atmosphere with greenhouse gases, the planet warms. And as it does so, ice sheets and glaciers melt and warming sea water expands, increasing the volume of the world’s oceans.”
As stewards of the earth we should be protecting it rather than destroying it by burning fossil fuels. At present alternative energy such as solar panel systems are not just environmentally beneficial but financially beneficial. Contact a member of our team for further information.
Dave Throup the EA’s manager for Hereford and Worcestershire took to twitter in concern. “It’s getting scary folks, what I’ve seen over the last few days isn’t normal. It isn’t even the new normal. It’s going to get worse; we need to adapt and respond fast.”
Yesterday we were expected to have one months’ worth of rainfall in just 24 hours. This rainfall falling on ground that is already saturated, damage to infrastructure and crops becoming even more severe and difficult to recover from.
We all need to play a part in the climate mitigation process. Luckily for homeowners there is a great way we can participate in the climate mitigation process while saving and earning up to 30k with solar energy systems. There are many benefits to switching to solar energy. Contact us to hear more or even book in for a FREE energy assessment today.
