ESSEX FACES ANNUAL FLOODS, CONFERENCE TOLD
LONG COASTLINE AND LOW ALTITUDE PUT COUNTY AT HIGH RISK - MEP

ESSEX is sinking at the rate of a centimetre a year – and is one of the UK
counties most under threat from climate change, a conference in Leigh-on-Sea
heard today.

Speaking at the ‘Flooding and Climate Change’ conference, Green Party MEP
and Principal Speaker Caroline Lucas said:

“Climate change is the biggest global threat we face, as has been
acknowledged by Tony Blair and even the Bush administration, and Essex is in
the front line, with many areas lying below sea level and one of the longest
coastlines in the country.

“The floods of 1953, still fresh in the minds of many Essex residents,
showed how vulnerable the county can be from the rising sea levels
associated with global warming.

“Unless we cut global CO2 emissions by some 60 per cent in the next few
decades, devastating floods could become an almost annual occurrence here –
and to do that we fairly must cut UK emissions by as much as 80 – 90 per
cent in the same period.

“The government just isn’t facing up to this reality and, unless the people
of Essex are to suffer a similar fate to those in New Orleans last year, it
is essential that it does so.”

Dr Lucas made her comments at a conference on flooding and climate change at
Leigh-on-Sea’s Quaker Meeting House on Dundonald Road, today (Friday, June
23rd). The event was organized by South-East Essex Green Party, and other
speakers included Jane Milne from the British Association of insurers and
Mary Dhonau, chair of the National Flood Forum
