Those who do not believe that climate change is real should take a close look at Britain’s recent weather patterns. Not only has Britain been hit with torrential rain that has led to severe flooding in many areas, but wind speeds were reported at 106 mph during recent storms.

The wind left devastation similar to what a tornado would leave behind. Trees were uprooted and had fallen over on cars and homes. Large trucks and heavy structures were tossed around Britain’s streets and many homes were destroyed or severely damaged.

Many highways and roadways had to be closed because of storm damage. In some areas, the roads were covered in debris and broken into pieces. Train travel has also been halted for the time being, as trees and other debris have fallen on the tracks and are yet to be removed.

The rains have caused rivers and streams to flood as well, making travel even more difficult and also ruining homes, businesses and vehicles. Britain has been dealing with bad weather since December and 2014 has been the wettest year on record since 1766.

Britain’s Met Office, the nation’s weather agency, released a statement about the weather and have blamed it on global warming and climate change. The statement was published in a paper this weekend and said,

“There is no definitive answer” on the role played by climate change in the recent weather and floods. But there is an increasing body of evidence that extreme daily rainfall rates are becoming more intense, probably due to a warming world.”

A climate scientist at Pennsylvania State University agreed with the report saying,

“The bottom line is this: we are indeed now seeing with our very eyes the impacts of climate change on severe weather, record heat, drought, more intense hurricane activity, the only question at this point is how far downstream this treacherous torrent we are going to paddle.”

Regardless of what is causing Britain’s bad weather, residents are worried that it will continue for many months and are not sure how to protect their homes and other property from future storms.

What do you think is the cause of the bad weather?

    When in the history of Earth has the climate NOT been changing?

  • GardenGnomeLF

    The climate has always changed and always will change.

    The Earth is a big place. SOMETHING is always happening. Previously there weren't people living in a lot of these places so if 100 MPH winds hit somewhere who cares. Now we populate almost everywhere and we get instant information if anything happens.

    The vast majority of the Earth has experience ZERO unusual weather this year. Why isn't that proof of just normal climate cycles? Because you can't have governments take your money in those cases.

    Weather is not climate. Mild weather is ignored by Climate Alarmists but if something bad happens anywhere in the world….PANIC TIME! Hand your money over to the government!

    BTW, hurricane activity has been unusually mild for a number of year now, but that is ignored by Climate Alarmists.
