‘It has to be dealt with’: what is the future for midwest towns affected by flood

Up and down the the rivers of the Midwest, towns are reeling. Some are just reemerging after being underwater for weeks. And while politicians continue to debate the credibility of climate change science, the attitudes of some people on the ground and in the water are starting to sway.

Check out the article linked below from The Guardian; it’s far from unbiased in that it draws connections between anecdotal evidence of extreme weather events and climate change, but beyond the politics and debates, this is what life looks like right now in many places.

It’s also both sad and informative to hear the perspectives of people in the midst of their own natural disaster. Though we don’t always appreciate the reminders, they are helpful in keeping us focused on our goals of delivering better flood protection.
