This house is not sinking in London’s Thames: that floating mock-up of a normal British suburban residence is a part of a demonstration known as”Our home is Flooding”, organized by Extinction Rebellion to need that British politicians act on climate change.
A microwave oven bobbed in the water beside the massive model home, finish with drainpipes and chimney stack.
Extinction Rebellion staged the demonstration as portions of northern and central England were fighting with the aftermath of flooding that started last week when intense storms introduced a month’s rain in under 24 hours.
“We’re seeing, in real life, as people’s lives are destroyed around the globe and in the UK; unless action is taken to stop biodiversity loss and decrease greenhouse gas emissions into net-zero, those tragedies are set to worsen,” Extinction Rebellion stated in an announcement.
“Many folks in the united kingdom have experienced life-changing adventures this week, and there’ll be more in low-lying and coastal regions affected by flood within the approaching winter. We stand in solidarity with all of the people who have lost their houses and livelihoods and will continue to need action until the seriousness of the national and worldwide crisis is realized”
The threat climate change poses to societies across the planet were underlined a month at a study that discovered that 300 million individuals are at risk of coastal flooding by 2050 — twice the amount previously believed.
The analysis from Climate Central, a U.S.-based climate science firm, revealed that large sections of London and coastal and low-lying regions in Britain are one of the regions at risk unless sufficient sea defenses were constructed.
“Regardless of our government’s refusal, this is a federal tragedy creeping ever nearer to the funding,” Extinction Rebellion explained.
