Climate Emergency? – Yes Even Here In Wednesfield!

Climate Emergency is not just a throw away line.

We are seeing the effect of climate change in the weather here in Wednesfield even today. #StormDennis brought about seven significant flooding issues in homes here in Wednesfield North alone, There were four significant local floods’in four locations that caused so much concern. they were – Kitchen Lane,Lichfield Road,Linthouse Lane and Ridge Lane, with some other less significant effects and locations.

The storms and the flooding following these weather changes that are taking place, are in in towns and cities close to where we live. Even here in our own location of Wednesfield we are seeing increased local flooding as the weather changes

We all need to take on board the things that we can do to help our own situation. We can walk a little more, take public transport for some journeys, we can #ShopLocal, and improve the individual and our own family carbon footprint. We can plant an indigenous tree in the garden, we can compost food waste, we can recycle more, and we can use our clothes just that little bit longer!

Take a look at the information contained here and do what you can to ensure,we all change…Yes and the Local Authority needs to do so big time too! I am interested to hearing what you say- So leave a comment please.
