building houses on and tarmac'ing floodplains hasn't helped either. nowhere to capture all the excess run-off is an issue that could be seriously
considered. a minister mentioned standpipes next year for a worst case drought.
the main problem with the last sentence and also taking into account your mention of a power grid almost on it's knees is,,,,,, (consider extra
loading on the grid due to hybrid rollout,more demand),,,,,,the vast majority of households rely on an energy efficient boiler to warm their home,
wash bods and dishes on tap etc. if the water is reduced to standpipes, no boiler on demand direct hot water. if power grid buckles, no boiler on
demand direct hot water or central heating. cannot remember the minister in question but they should realise the implications of a double whammyn and
prepare everyone for this.
