We cannot live without water, and of course we are composed mostly of it - it is us. But many in the UK and other parts of the world would be forgiven for being a little fed up with it. We've got too much of a good thing. Flooding is happening everywhere. Up and down the country, houses, shops and business are awash. We are becoming water logged. We are a nation drowning.
Curiously elsewhere on the planet, plants and livestock are dying because the rains just won't come. There the people pray for rain, but it stays away day after long day.
Here though, the rain is falling as I write and daily weather warnings of more downpours to come are becoming 'normal'.
Humans are very adaptable. It's just as well. There will be many things we will have to adapt to as time goes by. Scientists tell us we have tipped over a critical point from which there is now no return. Now we have to come up with ways to manage this changing scenario. Now we have to take action.
If I had the power, I would be planting trees like there's no tomorrow - for if we don't, there may well not be.
Our environment is not only changing, it has changed.
