Is global warming the cause of flash floods in Istanbul? With global warming and climate change being one of the more prominent issues - do you think that global warming had anything to do with the flash floods in Istanbul? Just looking for your opinions.
Unfortunately there hasn’t been much news coverage in Australia on the Istanbul flooding but the 2004 tragic tsunami flood in Asia was a wake up call for everyone around the world.
Have watched 60 Minutes (Australia) on television regarding global warming and climate change and scientists have been very vocal about the effects of global warming and the effects could even ‘hit’ us in 30 or even 50 years time (estimation) and islands around Australia would be the first countries to suffer first hand if the sea levels drops..
Pretty scary though, especially for islanders as where will they all go if their homes and islands are flooded.
I think global warming has made some changes to this planet that we will never, in our lifetime or the next, be able to repair.
Flooding is certainly related to it, and the part that frightens me the most is that it isn't the worst that can happen.
Global warming is one thing flash floods are caused by a sudden rise of water
