Postcards From the Future

Postcards from the Future

Today the Telegraph is promoting illustrators' images of how London could be affected by climate change.  (The images are not downloadable, hence the link).

Hasn't it occurred to any of these experts that this could the be result of building on a flood plain?

More propaganda.

Londonistan can sink for all I care and it can take the politicians with it.

Ah Well, look on the bright side, the water table will rise and you can use your hose in the summer.

Blackpool has prepared for this by adopting a submarine.

Well said Sue. :)

Joe, your link doesn't produce a photo.

Well Rightwinggit, someone has put central London under wanter and taken it back to the 1800s. That's my opinion.

subrosa said...

Yes indeed. They never focus on the positive do they Dram.

subrosa said...

Well done Intruder. I rather like that.

What. A. Load. Of. Old. Pony.

These doomsayers become ever more absurd by the day. We used to stick them in an asylum, now governments listen to them. Sheesh.

Every day there's something now Dick. They're becoming more and more desperate.

Time was when the London flood control centre was in a bunker under Kingsway, ie below sea level!

Images not downloadable? you sure about that?

subrosa said...

Now, how did you do that banned? When I tried I was blocked.

Is it a screen grab? Can't be. :)

@SR, sshhh it's a secret. I figured it out a while back when stealing a pic from the soaraway Sun.

Delete all your temporary internet files, reload the page, go back to TIF folder (more details if required). Right click on displyed files. click "display files by SIZE"; desired .jpg will probably be the biggest such file, right click on that and (top left of screen) copy to 'my picures' or wherever.
Same applies to viewed vids if they don't give you a download option and it's why they catch kiddie porn freaks even if they "only look" at the pictures.

Banned thanks so much for that. I use a Mac so it's quite different, but if I do a restart or clear history, that could well work.
