Best wishes to all those coping with the floods up north.
The current floods have showed up real weaknesses in the capacity of Auckland’s fresh water supply system. Despite warnings, Aucklanders are not saving enough water and will probably soon need to boil drinking water. This issue may persist until the “end of the month”. The effects of climate change are here, now.
We should be preparing. As well as doing everything we can to cut emissions, We should be hardening our critical infrastructure. Like – Auckland’s water supply. Instead of building – you know – more roads.
