Coastlines Erode!

This doomsday type story is all too typical of the modern media approach and everybody is cashing in on it, even the National Trust, who should know better.

We read how the Welsh coastline is being eroded and, because of rising sea levels and increased storm activity, the coast will erode faster in the future. Well, I am sorry to disappoint people but coastal erosion is the status quo around most of Wales. It's all part and parcel of coming out of several major Ice Ages; there is an imbalance that has to be balanced and Nature will take her course regardless of what people, including the BBC and the National Trust might wish otherwise. Sea levels rise and fall and storm activity increases and decreases whether we think we cause them or think we can control them.
