article view

Britain is accelerating plans to protect London from flooding caused by a warming climate and rising sea levels, bringing forward its scheme of work to protect the city centre by 15 years.
The government said in a statement on Wednesday it was speeding up an existing climate adaptation programme, bringing forward a target to raise defences in the city to 2050, rather than by 2065 as originally set out in a 2012 document.
The government statement said the change was based on improved climate change models which showed the "heightened risk of flooding from a warming climate and rising sea levels.
