In that case I'll buy a new winter coat!
There's no question but that the weather paterns are changing and that
sea levels are rising - by the time it's proved that the cause is
man-made (or not) you Brits are going to be major consumers of snorkels!
Assuming thats the potential to wipe us out - we are different now. Should I
consult a text book to check when the last ice age receded as far as Britain
is concerned. Fairly sure its less than 2 million years ago.
Of course you may have a different definition of 'us'.

LOL - but FFS don't say that, I've just bought another home within
three-quarters of a mile of the Humber Estuary and on its flood plain!
Could be worse, could have bought in Gloucester!
I'm not here to argue climate change - it's happening and it's happening
much faster than it's happened in the past. If it's being caused by
humanity then by the time we prove that cause it will be too late to
stop that change.
Well, I don't know one way or the other, but I'm sufficiently convinced
as to buy my current home well away from the seaside. If the scientists
(95% of them) are right I'll have to cope with damp seasiders looking
for shelter, if they're wrong I've bought in an area that has strong
tourist potential for those who don't like sand in their togs.
It's 25 miles plus to the lifeboat station on Spurn Point and a crossing of
the estuary and at least a 7 mile walk to Trinity House.
The inshore inflatable life-raft is nearer - last seen evacuating flood
victims from the centre of Anlaby.
