I love this piece as much as the last one, Jo. I've always wanted us to have an environmental columnist and if you're game you're hereby appointed. ;)

I would love to but I don't think I can manage the "coming up with columns on demand" part of that job description :) Although I'm thinking of a "Land Reclamation" piece next. Before New Year. Maybe...

one of the things about post-apoc shows that always gets me, that's cool, is how nature reclaims everything once we're out of the way

Yeah, nature is kind of superpowered that way. Obviously, there are things that can badly damage individuals and make certain areas inhospitable but, as a whole, life is pretty good at surviving and adapting.

Entropy... it always catches up with you eventually ;)

Nice article. At first I thought about something completely different when reading the headline. Thinking more along the lines of the Dutch land reclamation or the Hong Kong airport project (which is also on new land reclaimed from the sea). Didn't occur to me until reading it that it was about recycling land that was already, well, land :lol:

Yeah. There's at least another article about land reclamation. I grew up in an area drained by the Dutch back in Charles II's day. It's an interesting topic :)

Also, there's an element of attempting to hold back tides with respect to flood defences which might make an interesting article.

And lookign at this stuff is making me wonder about doing a piece on keywords in place names (how to give away that you might be in a flood basin). Except that's a very regional thing and might not extend very far out of the area i grew up in :)

Well, anything that inspires you to pen more articles is good by me. :)

Very interesting follow-up to your last piece, Jo. I plan to make reference to it in one of my next geography lessons - we're looking at redevelopment in the city, so extending our focus to the rural world makes good sense. Thank you!

I think Jez referencing you in his teaching is fantastic even if you do turn out to be full of it. ;)

The entire point of WW was always supposed to be writers and artists supporting and encouraging each other so... Yay Jo! Yay Jez! Good show!
