Surely the answer is investment in a flotilla of boats? I can see us now, ride of the valkyries blaring out as we come flying down the Tees ready to be dropped off at the dock Up the Riverside reds.What is the answer? As the Worlds Population continues to grow (as I type this the Population Growth this year alone has been 59,014,886) the demand for products used in everyday life will also grow and thus emissions released to the atmosphere in turn. Unless a drastic change is implemented, I fear for what is to come.

Fulham like most of London is protected from high tides by the very expensive Thames Barrier.
True there has been flooding from flash fIoods, but I would tend to think flash floods affect basement flats, ground floors of houses, dips in roads etc. The rising Thames is reduced by the Thames Barrier in central London, by preventing problems from high tides which used to cause a lot of problems before it was built and potentially could be a regular problem if sea levels significantly rise. The barrier was built in 1982 on Teesside btw.Thames Barrier or not there have been several flash floods in areas of London this year.
And there has been flooding either side of the Thames at Fulham in recent past.In July 2021, London experienced severe flash flooding, resulting in at least 2,000 claims and at least £100m of insured loss. Our Event Response team analyses areas impacted and losses.www.jbarisk.com
