Catastrophic flooding across western Europe as politicians blame climate change – BBC News



More than 120 people have died and hundreds are still missing after record rainfall caused the worst flooding in parts of Western Europe for many decades.

In Germany dozens of people were unaccounted for, with the Chancellor Angela Merkel describing the floods as a catastrophe.

Torrential rain has also devastated parts of Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg. 

Survivors have described the terrifying speed at which water levels rose.
 
Some politicians in Germany say the extreme weather is the result of global warming and they’re calling for more urgent action to counter climate change.

Clive Myrie presents BBC News at Ten reporting – from Jenny Hill in Erftstadt, Germany – Anna Holligan in the Dutch town of Valkenberg – and chief environment correspondent Justin Rowlatt on the threat posed by climate change.

  8. Thanks for this educative video and also thanks to those who recommended Rosie for her good works. Y'all have to know that making money digitally is the main key to survival now, as the government is hesitant on helping poor masses. I also recommend Rosie to people who wishes to earn hu ge proflt.

  9. Idiots keep flying and driving gas guzzling cars and heating those giant homes you probably never sceen ever room in ….you idiots belong in a.mental institution

  10. Here is a science test the so-called scientists don't want you to do.
    Fill a glass of water.
    Add salt.
    Add ice cubes.
    Mark the water level.
    Wait an hour.
    The water level will not raise because the ice melted.
    The global warming catastrophe is a HOAX.

  11. Climate changes. We live on a planet with tectonic activity, polar shifts, etc… This is what happens.

  12. Examples of FLOODS and their Destructions and Damages:

    Our Prayers to Our Father, Son (Jesus Christ), and The Holy Spirit:

    (1). Our World Pandemic Covid-19 since December 2019, Delta Variant, Natural Disasters of Hurricanes, Tornados, Flooding, Earthquakes, Fires, Volcano Eruptions, Wars, Criminal Activities, Dissents, etc … have Caused many Deaths, Injuries, Losses of Home & Business Buildings, Community Properties, Personal Properties, Transportation, Food, Clothing, Lifestyles, Education, Businesses, etc …. many, many Lives have been Negatively Effected, in many, many Ways. We Pray that Each Disaster Area will have Disaster Plans to Support and Help ALL the Communities and their Inhabitants, Victims, to Survive, and Restore their Lives, as Best as Can be. We Thank You Lord, for Your Mercies, Grace and Everlasting Love for us. We REBUKE The Devil in Each of our Lives. May GOD’S Will be Done in Each of our Lives.

  13. Augst 2021 Germany 🇩🇪
    Floods, Holland, Eropa,
    Agustus 2021 🍒
    Pray for Germany , Europe, 🙏🙏

  14. climate change would be happening even if there wasnt any people on the earth , fact , were as greed will be with us forever, to say we are to blame , and the bbc report it that way,, they should be ashamed of them selfs , volcanos pump billions of tons of crap in the air every day , far more than people do , not to say we should do nothing to try and help matters , politicians should be kept well away from these matters,, sea defences need to be built first , not electic cars and solar

  15. In this way, the world will gradually be destroyed, but some intellectual people in the world do not want to accept that they say climate change is drying the throat😄

  16. BBC stop fake news on Ethiopian,BBC still think modern colony ? Shame on this dam BBC news.

  17. Hope Germany for a fast recovery since the flood start keep always safe Germans god blessed you

  18. Of course this has nothing to do with current volcanic activity and sun flares and solar winds oh no its just not possible that we can feed the lords children without someone cashing in on it

  19. The world needs Jesus Son of the most high God of Israel 🇮🇱 .
    Thanks for sharing God bless you ❤

  20. It means god tells you be humble and be harmonious with Easterners instead of keeping too stiff necks.
