I have a new buzz word. “Multi-factorial”. Because when it comes to the causes of floods and the solutions, there is no one easy answer but there are plenty of myths. This morning we’re going to go through everything you’v been hearing about floods and separate truth from fiction.

Our panellists this week are,

Michael Fitzmaurice, Independent TD for Roscommon-South Leitrim and 

John Sweeney, professor emeritus of climatology from Maynooth University

Charles Stanley Smith, press officer, spokesperson, and former chair of an Taisce

Mark Adamson, head of the flood relief and risk management division with the OPW

Geoffrey Lean, Britain's longest serving environmental journalist
