Time Magazine : British History Goes Back 40 Years

http://ecocentric.blogs.time.com/

So I followed their link to “some of the worst flooding in British history

http://www.pupilvision.com/yeareleven/rivers1.htm

Apparently Time Magazine thinks British history began in 1970, which can’t be true. The Beatles and Rolling Stones were popular in the 1960s, so I can say for sure that England has been around since at least 1960.

    wow when it’s cold you can also get flooding, I though only warm causes flooding

    Flooding, especially sea flooding, was a major problem during the Little Ice Age, and the hostile climate had a direct impact on the viability of crops throughout Europe. Some years in the Little Ice Age were marked by extremely poor crops, resulting in ripples of problems which spread to all ranks of society.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_Sea_flood_of_1953

    The worst floods in living history were probably the 1953 north sea floods actually, that’s why Holland spent billions after to increase their defenses. Though Holland has always had regular floods back 2000 years, though by 1950s they had to power to do something about it building the massive dyke defenses Afsluitdijk is particulr…

    Interesting that they miss this period in the above report.. 😛

    I like how easy that statement was disproved by simply saying “The Beatles and Rolling Stones were popular in the 1960s”. NEXT!!

    We certainly should not reduce CO2 levels back to what it was in the 1300s when tens of thousands Dutch were drowned by flooding.
