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.

    More canals would have to be built between the rivers. This would not only open up new waterways, but could also be used as drainage channels for flood protection.

    The floods are horrible, but also the politicization and propaganda at the end of the video to blame everything on climate change and on humans respectively (suggesting we had a chance to avoid natural catastrophes like this)… it's called nature, that's the cause for the floods, for all floods, everywhere, ever.

    Слово Божье вновь на Земле, в России, имя его Виссарион. 30 лет назад он дал учение Последний Завет и предупредил о надвигающихся проблемах со стороны Природы, преодолеть которые смогут лишь люди, соединившись в одну большую семью, исполняя законы Божьи. Но его не послушали, не приняли и даже арестовали 2,5 года назад и теперь судят в России. Трудности будут нарастать, ведь время упущено. А россияне сущие слепцы- пропустить такое чудо. В это время мечтали жить многие праведники разных времён и стран. И что в итоге? Обратите серьезное вынимание на общину Виссарилна в Сибири и его Учение. В нём спасение

    Is it really a tragedy if we all have been seeing this happening across the planet for decades yet do nothing to stop it?
    Looks more like justice.
    If we don't act, we, and the planet, die.

    Excellent work by an incompetent creator
    who made the earth with his pea brain microscopic knowledge.
    If the fellow didnt create any thing and stayed in his heaven creating beautiful girls and making more sons andbdaughters, the world would be spared of the horros of war, racism, viruses, diseases, cancer, droughts, floods, tsunamis and all whatnot.

    The truth is fellows, there is No God.

    Of course they say that. But note that climate change occurred way before mankind used fossil fuels and way before mankind had any global environmental impacts. Plus, the largest emitting countries in the world are only increasing their usage of the dirtiest source of energy on earth: coal.
    Additionally, much flooding can be mitigated by smarter and modernized architecture and the location of where people build houses. I'm sorry, but building living centers on all the coast lines was a disaster waiting to happen. The parable of the house built on sand comes to mind…
    What's happening is the result of poor land management, poor irrigation management, government infrastructure/natural disaster preparation mismanagement, and a lot of ineffective policies that shift money from R&D to politician pockets. Basically, we could be, and should be, taking steps to address these fundamental issues of effectivity and efficiency that plague our Western governments.

    Let’s gain more and more awareness that we can change this terrible climate devastation ! We must build a law that regulate this situation and obligate everybody to do the right thing to the planet! We can’t live in a burning or flooding house ! That’s what is happening right now and is going to get worse if we don’t take precautions right now!

    Nature is sending us a message with the coronavirus pandemic and the ongoing climate crisis ‘ -by Inger Andersen, Executive Director of the United Nations Environment Programme, 2020.
    As early as 34 years ago, in 1987, GPDC received a similar message from the Creator. JUDGEMENT UPON HUMAN BEINGS HAS BEGUN, ALTHOUGH DOOMSDAY IS OVER.
    This Judgement affects nature in the entire world. For instance, temperatures would change from cold to hot and hot to cold, floods, drought, accidents involving fire, earthquakes and diseases which are unexpected and incurable. FOR ALL THESE TO AN END HUMANS NEED TO APOLOGY FOR ALL WRONG DOING AND HELP EACH OTHER AND COME TO ONE OUR CREATOR, CREATOR OF WHOLE UNIVERSE ( NON RELIGION) https://youtu.be/ljxiuSqX1Jo
