ENGLAND, MORE ISOLATED THAN EVER
A round-the-world tour of countries facing climate change
An episode from the series EARTH ON EDGE
England is home to majestic landscapes: cliffs facing the sea, bright green pastures, picturesque harbours. From the Isle of Wight to Yorkshire, 36 millions tourists come each year to enjoy London, its frantic capital, but also the bucolic charm of its provinces.
But the island is facing more and more threats with increased storms and downpours that exert a tremendous pressure on its inhabitants. Along the coasts, entire villages are threatened by erosion, while inland major floods follow one another.
A situation that is exacerbated by an underperforming compensation system.
