Evidence of Climate Change
For anyone still sitting on the fence in relation to whether or not we're suffering the effects of climate change, look out a window.
After receiving one month's worth of rain in one day, people have to start realising that we need to more to combat these effects.
The are reports across the country of farm animals drowned, crops ruined and people's homes and belongings destroyed.
Also our new West Link, costing millions to build, failed miserably at the first hurdle. The Broadway Underpass flooded to the roof, a quarter mile stretch of road almost 30 feet deep in filthy water which trapped a man on the roof of his car, forced to await rescue.
In all fairness, we can't possibly have expected much more from the new Westlink. It was built in Belfast after all and we do have a tendency to fill anything we produce with liquid.
Belfast. Now famous for a boat that sank, an alcoholic footballer and and a road based loosely on the design of a bucket.
