The future of domestic bliss

    The International Day of Climate Action on October 24th was so eventful that new and interesting photos from the more than 5,200 actions that took place around the world keep popping up. This one is from the flood-plagued shores of Borth, Mid Wales. According to Britain’s conservative tabloid The Daily Express, activists staged a photo of “domestic bliss” that gets “shattered by an uninvited guest – the Irish Sea.”

    Hundreds of locals – who claim half their village could vanish by the end of this century – helped stage the event in which a living room, complete with walls and furniture, slowly disappeared as the tide came in.

    Event organiser John Howarth said: “Much of Borth is very close to sea level and already suffers flood damage in high tides and stormy conditions.

    “Unchecked climate change could be disastrous in our lifetimes.”
