this is the effect of global warming, and we must spend billions on infrastructure because its going to happen again - soon.

Er - the Thames Barrier sort of was one in a billion attempt. True they didn't stretch to the GW words, just storm surges and the like. But they did reckon it would have a 50 year life, which in Govspeak was the GW words.
And when was it commissioned? Mid 1980s? Those 50 years might have been optimistic.

And where was it protecting? Lundun innit?

Apart from te people who would say that anyway - no one is sticking their neck out and saying - this is the effect of global warming, and we must spend billions on infrastructure because its going to happen again - soon.

TV keeps parroting - 'its the worse rain for 50 years' - yeh we noticed - rather wet as well!

the subtext to that seems to be - well as long as its only once every 50 years, bugger off - you're better off than in Venice.

As the original question "UK - Rain 2019: Have we got another five months of this? " has not been answered, I will do it.

The answer is:

obviously not! As it is already mid-November, you will only have another one and a half months of 2019 rain.

Followed by 12 months of 2020 rain,
followed by 12 months of 2021 rain,
followed by ...

After all, the UK has to fulfill the cliché of being a rainy country ...

Venice streets full of water, please advise.

Never understood why people choose to live on a flood plain

1) because it usually has alluvial soil, very fertile. (archaic in modern employment).
2) because it probably has access to travel by water (OK notso important since the IC engine).
3) because the developer doesn't care once he has bribed the local gov planners
4) because the estate agent didn't tell you everything he knew
5) because the planners plan on a once in 50 years' event. And not on global warming** - History doesn't tell you everything either!
6) because it is sooooooooooooooooo pretty
7) because they don't like driving up steep roads in the Chelsea Tractor (wot goes 50 miles a day to commute).

**fact. Only the cause should be in any possible soupçon of dispute, not that would stop some of this parish.

Yebbut there are millions of people who live round Vesuvius who are poor and who have no choice, that's the thing, and it's where the work is. If the volcano ever threatens there is a massive evacuation plan in place (ye gods, Italy doing an evacuation plan - how confident would that make you feel!) but Vesuvius has been quiescent now since 1944, the longest it's gone for many hundreds of years without erupting. The mountain is monitored by vulcanologists more intensely probably than any other on earth. It may have exhausted itself for the time being. I reckon that the Campi Flegrei supervolcano, a few miles the other side of Napoli, is far more of a threat. Ask the people of Pozzuoli, who are regularly terrified by heaving ground cause by a restless magma chamber. Campi Flegrei is close to Vesuvius but is not part of the same magma regime. Walk up the road from Pozzuoli and stroll into La Solfatara crater. Scary, smoky, stinky. It went off last about a thousand years ago. It's where San Gennaro, the patron saint of Naples, was martyred in the fourth century. He just lost his head, that's all. You can see his bones sticking out of a big urn in the duomo in Naples. There's an excellent pizzeria at the top of the same road.

In the case of Venice Scirocco winds blowing from the south east can drive water into the lagoon, much of which is made up of marshes and mud flats. When high tides coincide with strong winds and a low pressure system, the effect can be unpredictable and extreme. On Nov. 12 winds of over 100 km an hour hit the city and lagoon tides peaked at 187 cm, their highest level since the 1966 record of 194 cm. Twentieth-century industry worsened things by pumping out massive amounts of groundwater from the aquifer beneath the lagoon for nearly 50 years before the government stopped the practice in the 1970s. In the last century, Venice has sunk by about nine inches.

Because, Bonzo, the Bay Of Naples is the centre of the Earth, the beginning and the end of everything. Naples is a scruffy, lively, vibrant, criminal, romantic, beautiful place that makes (nay, invented) the finest pizzas on the planet and it has an amazing archaeological museum. Just up the road you have Pompei, Herculaneum and Stabiae. Watch out for the beggars on the Circumvesuviana railway to Sorrento but marvel at the cheapness of the fare. The world's finest pasta is made nearby in Gragnano. Just over the peninsula is the Amalfi Coast, a crowded heaven on Earth. You can go on a boat, preferably a little 16-seater, to Capri. Do that trip before you die. And you can go to the top of Vesuvio and wander through the Campi Flegrei and walk on the level into a volcano at La Solfatara. And if you go in summer the sun will beam on you but you won't burn to a frazzle. Over two million people live within a few miles of Vesuvio, a thoroughly beautiful and fertile mountain that has probably finished blowing its fuse now. See it from Marina Grande in Sorrento across the misty bay at sunset. The two million all hope I'm right. Some of them live in slums and squalor and don't live there by choice. But go and spend a couple of weeks in the area and be prepared to be swept off your feet. Pliny the Elder loved it so much that he died there in 79. And there's a hell of a good gelateria in Sorrento...

Now, let me see. Suppose the globe is, as an average over the surface, and over a few years, a wee bit warmer. Someone must have done the data collection, and those who haven't please shut up for a bit.

Now suppose that a warmer world, which is covered more by water, is going to evaporate more of the wet stuff. Now suppose that this evaporate can't increase forever. Now tell me, what will it do, as its mass increases (or did I mean weight?). That's the gravity of the situation.

Yes, yes, it is only 0.5 oC (or is it 0.6?) more right now, at a time when the earth's precession (or should I say wobble/oval orbit?) would point us into a cooler era. But who is it to say that such a teensy weensy bit of difference is going to reek havoc with this weather wot we are seeing? Mind you - who is to say, on the spectrum of havoc, what we could yet see?

Heads in the sand anyone? I fear there may be much more of that medium in years to come. So some of us should be right at home then.

Animals have always affected their environment, and the naked ape is more affecting and more numerous. And more partial to a silicon dioxided pate.

Nice to see Boris the Braindead up to his neck in this particular example of Tory do-nothing-until-it's-too-late neglect
More arrant nonsense. This problem has been building for decades.
Flooding, and managing it, cost the UK around £2.2 billion each year: we currently spend around £800 million per annum on flood and coastal defences; and, even with the present flood defences, we experience an average of £1,400 million of damage. :According to the Guardian yesterday: government has ramped up spending on flood defences in England since 2010. Perhaps the commentator above is braindead for sprinting to the keyboard without even a soupçon of fact checking.
The Water Framework Directive 2000/60/EC is an EU directive which commits European Union member states to achieve good qualitative and quantitative status of all water bodies by 2015.
Total river basin management in terms of achieving good ecological status runs counter to anthropogenic pressures. Increased dredging is not always the answer. Land use needs to change. Reclamation of uplands reduces their capacity to absorb rainwater. Urban infrastructure, especially drains is victorian in many places and barely adequate coping with normal loads, let alone abnormally high rainfall events.
The London water main carries an additional 300 million litres per day into London, I wonder if the sewerage system had a commensurate upgrade? As water courses have been regularised infrastructure has been allowed to encroach onto former floodplains, having taken no account of extreme events. Probably areas of farmland will have to be relinquished, especially saltmarsh, in order to offer more protection upstream. Pointing a finger at the government of the day for dereliction of duty shows a basic lack of awareness of the complexity of the problem. I get the impression that only recently have the hard questions been asked as to the way forward. Knee jerk reactions merely accentuate the problem.The watershed needs to be considered in it's entirety in order to devise the most effective solutions. Some properties may simply have to be abandoned.
