I was discussing the topic of flooding with my fellow residents. Disposable nappies contain a water absorbing powder or granules which can absorb up to 400 times their own weight in water

 

Aside from the environmental impact, if one nappy can keep a baby dry overnight, why can't the same product be used in its raw form?

I personally think....lets spend more on dredging the canals/rivers/existing drainage and less holidays in Barbados:-)

This was the worst flooding in some parts for a very long time. What they have to look at, is water management across the country. It means dredging and maintaining water courses, planting more trees in some areas, creating natural resevoirs, installing more pumps, installing flood walls etc. It would cost tens of billions over say 10 years, but they could reduce the flood risk in most areas, so that we don't see the same level of damage.

 

They have had recent bad flood events in California and New South Wales Australia recently, so it is happening around tbe world. The climate conditions are getting worse and some of it is down to the way humans are treating the planet,
