The Sea Wants The Land

More and more of these little, "Not seen the sea like that for a while" moments will fade into normality as climate change generates a more tempestuous coastline.

Just like the apocryphal frog in the mythical boiling water we will forget how it was and come to live with a view of the world that has "strange events" as normal.

Those reports of once in 100 year events will still make the TV news, but we'll forget that they used to be called 'once in 500 year events'.

Eventually, we won't be able to cope, and we'll wonder how we didn't see this coming.
