The above is a video from the Internet forwarded by a Namibian colleague. You may consider a more appropriate title in the light of recent events.
I have attached below my memo with the above title for your interest.
I have also attached a notice of a four day course by the Department of Civil Engineering of the University of Pretoria from 31 January to 3 February titled Flood hydrology and climate change impacts.
As soon as the word ‘adaptation’ appears in relation to climate change you are entering civil engineering territory. I was one of thirty international experts invited to Japan in connection with the establishment of a research institute. During the discussions I asked the meeting what their views were on climate change.
Their immediate reply was that it was no more than an unverified hypothesis. This is my end of the road on the climate change issue.
As always feel free to pass this on to anybody who may have an interest.
