17th June - Today's News: Severe Flash Floods in France Kill at Least 20

Deadly flash floods hit southern France with French flash flood death toll 'expected to rise'. Latest (unconfirmed) reports suggest that at least 29 people have died and the search continues for more missing people. Heavy rain for the region was predicted several days ago though amounts were not expected to be quite so high with nearly 12 inches falling in just a few hours. The event is discussed on UKww here. As usual, the Daily Mail has some of the best photos of this extreme event.

It's worth noting that this coincides with one of the periods Piers Corbyn predicted there would be 'deluges' in Western Europe (14-17 June). Although the previous heavy rain and floods in Britain occurred after his previous predicted period (8-11) so this appears to be nothing more than the usual guesswork. If you predict something often enough, you're score a success eventually! Piers is also predicting thunderstorms, deluges and flooding somewhere in Britain sometime in July. Which is about as predictable as snow falling on the Cairngorms in winter.

Cutting greenhouse gases will be no quick fix for our weather - well no, because greenhouse gases are only a part of the problem. AGW would exist had there never been any GHG emissions.
