The problem of climate change, since Greta Thunberg represented it, has become an even more sensitive issue. For this reason, among the many initiatives around the world, a British environmental association has decided to intervene and make itself heard.
In London, from Sunday, October 10, a typical London miniature house that floats near Tower Bridge appeared along the Thames. This is an activation proposed by Extinction Rebellion against climate change and attention to rising sea levels.
Activists then submerged the classic suburban house in London in an attempt to send a request for help to the government and alert it to the climate situation. A protest that comes after almost fifty flood alerts that have affected the whole of England.
More and more researchers are warning of the dangers of rising sea levels, which will have worse consequences than expected and in a shorter time than expected.
Because of rising sea levels, many large cities along the British coast will be submerged by 2050 and more than 150 million people will pay for it.
In Yorkshire and the Midlands in England, the floods have made it necessary to evacuate houses and in South Yorkshire, evacuations are being carried out so as not to endanger the lives of citizens.
Prime Minister Boris Jhonson, faced with what is happening, responded by saying that the problem of the floods did not affect the United Kingdom specifically and therefore did not amount to a national emergency.
