London Mayor, Sadiq Khan, posted a picture of the city street in heavy rain on his Twitter page and blamed climate change for the situation. This raised a lot of indignation from the network users’ side, as they couldn’t get the point, how rain that belongs to regular city weather, caused so much despair in the mayor.
In his comment to the picture, Khan warned, “Climate change is not a problem in far off parts of the world. It’s on our doorstep. It’s our problem too.”
However, most of the Internet users appeared at a loss to find it out how the global problem of climate changed was announced to be directly connected to rain which is quite a regular phenomenon in the city.
Lol, obviously drainage. If only you had to manage the maintenance of such things every day…….— Mat Rose (@mat_rosey) September 23, 2021

Clean the drains out and sort out those barriers that are presumably sat on top of the storm drains and are blocking them.
That puddle is a management problem (you), not some sort of mystical expression of climate change.

That looks like rain to me.
We do have rain in this country.

Well, how about what happened with climate change 1350 to 1850? Amazing isn’t it! Climate changes, due to solar patterns and solar system shifts. Nothing whatever we can do about it, least of all politicians. pic.twitter.com/zptnEV7RIz

Were you around when the Thames flooded in the 1950s? Can’t recall it being blamed on climate change then just exceptional weather. UK doesn’t have a climate it only has weather- so said my geography teacher in 1960s. Was ever thus.
