ABSTRACT: Paul Handover in his "Learning from Dog's" <http://learningfromdogs.com/> blog entry "One couldn't make it up: Stop the world, I want to get off" at <http://bit.ly/1dtBJJ9>, introduced George Monbiot's <http://bit.ly/1hyrg0O> (2014) brilliant investigative Guardian piece "Drowning in Money: the untold story of the crazy public spending that makes flooding inevitable: Every year billions are spent in Britain and Europe on policies that wreck homes and lives through flooding" <http://bit.ly/1i6eglA>, with the following:
