There is also always a risk that if we get two or three dry years, entirely possible without any significance in the overall trends, that concern about climate change will fade. Consider attitudes in Florida to hurricanes after several benign years.

Ignacio Quintana's curator insight, October 14, 2014 8:53 PM

Similar to another article I found, here we see how they plan to address this Immigration issue. Since the emigration is smaller than immigration, The UK is scared of having too many people. They will attempt to lower the rate of immigration, but they understand it will be tough. They have interestingly found that around a quarter of these immigrants were single mothers, so maybe the UK has a good looking economy which attracts people like single mothers looking to provide for a family.
