“On December 6 of 2015 river levels at Sands Centre in Carlisle hit 8 meters above the typical range. The previous record highest level for this river gauge was 4.5 meters — a level the new flood defense systems were designed to contain. But this week’s rainfall simply overwhelmed both flood defenses and previous expectations for the upper limits of extreme weather.” From: robertscribbler.com
GR: Weather extremes caused by global warming were not included in the Limits to Growth model described in my last post. The extremes may accelerate the beginnings of the collapse of human civilization that the model predicted.
