  • Residents of Fishlake, near Doncaster, said it was the first time the village had flooded in 100 years.

Is flooding supposed to be more frequent then? Or had locals just become complacent, assuming floods were a thing of the past?

When you build on flood plains and stop dredging the rivers, you get flooding where you don't want it. Its not excessive weather, its just neglect and negligence.

Reminder: the EU’s Water Framework Directive has resulted in a huge reduction in river dredging, to protect frogs and fish. The ecomentalists rejoiced. This is the consequence.

Reminder: the EU has banned us from dredging rivers. The ecomentalists rejoiced. This is the consequence.

Flooded when, before any humans started to pump CO2 en masse into the atmosphere? Some weather cycles are unaffected by humans it would seem? The 'actual' evidence might just be that 'Mother Nature' is in control and not the industrial ants....

So the flooding of this river is a cyclical pattern?
