ENGLAND: MORE ISOLATED THAN EVER
An episode from the series EARTH ON EDGE
England is home to majestic landscapes: cliffs that stand facing the sea, bright green pastures, ports that look like a postcard. From the Isle of Wight to Yorkshire, 36 million tourists flock each year to enjoy London, its frantic capital, but also the bucolic charm of its provinces. But the island is facing threats that are becoming stronger and stronger. The increased storms and downpours exert a tremendous pressure on its inhabitants. Along the coasts, entire villages are threatened by erosion. In the land, huge floods take turns. A situation that is exacerbated by an underperforming compensation system.
