Climate scientists say that there just wasn’t enough CO2 in the atmosphere in 1953 to produce heavy rain.
Today marks the 60th anniversary of the 1953 floods where over 300 people died, 24,500 houses were damaged and over 30,000 people were evacuated. Outside the towns and villages, thousands of animals were drowned and great tracts of farmland were made infertile by salt water. This was one of the worst peace time calamities to hit Britain with Winston Churchill declaring it a “National Disaster”.
Barack Obama believes that he can restore the climate back to what it used to be like.
