Default Thinking of Others

For those of us currently enjoying our life style here, please spare a thought for the 400,000 plus residents of Manila devastated by the recent floods. Just have a look at the photos and imagine what it must be like for them.

Such pictures have been, are and will be frequent...not so much because of climate change, but because city/town authorities continue to build in the floodplain of rivers or have not moved to higher ground. The Manila flood was a 1:100-year return flood, which also happened 40 years ago.
