Floods

It’s good to see some enlightened views being expressed in the national media about the causes of flooding and how to manage catchments to reduce the risk and impact of flooding:

This is from the BBC:

And this link is from the Guardian. You may not agree with George Monbiot’s politics, but this is a very well researched article with a good summay of the issues:
