    How about putting one specific ALARM-SOUND in place in every city, that tells people to go to a HIGH PLACE...! A sound that everyone can HEAR & everyone instantly can RECOGNIZE as saying: FLOOD = COMING!

This Already Concerns Everyone" on 24.07.2021 with translation into more than 70 languages ​​of the world, including sign language translation. Global climate change, what can we do to weather the coming disasters, the exponential development of artificial intelligence in the coming years and massive unemployment. Modern civilization has reached the point of instability and global crises. The global financial, economic, environmental, anthropological, and climate crises are realities that every person is already facing. But this is only the beginning. Do people realize the full scope of the upcoming threats? Radical changes in all spheres of life in the near future are inevitable for every person on the planet. Yet, how aware is the world community of these changes, not to mention being prepared for them?

    No disaster strikes except by permission of Allah. And whoever believes in Allah - He will guide his heart. (Quran Surah. At-Taghaabun 64: Verse 11) Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala said: وَمَاۤ اَصَا بَكُمْ مِّنْ مُّصِيْبَةٍ فَبِمَا كَسَبَتْ اَيْدِيْكُمْ وَيَعْفُوْا عَنْ كَثِيْرٍ  "And whatever strikes you of disaster - it is for what your hands have earned; but He pardons much." (QS. Ash-Shura 42: Verse 30) مَاۤ اَصَا بَ مِنْ مُّصِيْبَةٍ اِلَّا بِاِ ذْنِ اللّٰهِ ۗ وَمَنْ يُّؤْمِنْ بِۢا للّٰهِ يَهْدِ قَلْبَهٗ ۗ وَا للّٰهُ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيْمٌ "No disaster strikes except by permission of Allah. And whoever believes in Allah - He will guide his heart. And Allah is Knowing of all things." (QS. At-Taghaabun 64: Verse 11)

    FYI, the reality is, the next time you are on a Jetplane, you're obviously polluting the atmosphere with CO2, which is changing the Planet's climate. Unfortunately, that fact will not stop the majority of people from choosing the more polluting methods of travel. In general, we have cultures where most people either won't choose to reduce their CO2 emissions or can't due to the system ( e.g., have to travel to work using fossil-fueled transport or be unemployed)

    Meanwhile in China during henan enormous flood: All the other provinces in China started transporting living resources, and rescue within 2 hrs, most arrived within 1 day despite the horrific storm. People from nearby provinces risk their own lives to send food, save lives, make sure none of the sewers are blocked, and provide mental support. Donation all over media and social organisations, some Chinese companies that have lost billions in profit in the past few years donated millions of euros at risk of bankruptcy, low-key yet still found out by a few people, then the word spread and people rushed to buy their products and send money to the company, and insist on things like "Paid, you can just send me an empty box I'll be happier." Shops, schools, some military sites, anywhere not yet flooded in henan are open to the public and people living in tall buildings host as many smelly strangers as possible at their own homes. Scientific survival tips and real time information all over on the Internet, mouth-by-mouth so that people can help themselves and others, spread faster than ever. Similar things during any disaster in China I've heard. Every time I feel so astonished by how selfless and united humans can be and what amazing results it can lead to (just imagine that happening across the globe, we could save the world). Unfortunately, you can't yet name any other place like this, only in China.

    A six year old girl got overwhelmed by the flood and was pushed though a hair dresser shop window, now dead. Also, German politicians once show that they'e either incompetent or don't care. E.g. Phillip Amthor hold a digital event to get younger people interested for his party, and embrarrassed himself and his party greatly, instead of doing anything useful. He isn't a high or important politician, but still!

    Mongolia has carried out terrorist attacks using coronavirus biological and chemical weapons around the world, killing 4,000,000 people, disrupting the health of millions and disrupting the international economy! and Mongolia, in collaboration with meteorologists, is killing people and damaging the economy through natural disasters such as lightning, earthquakes, torrential rains and floods! The last two examples are the floods in the European Union and China. Mongolia needs to compete with the rest of the world on the right path of development!

    Of course it could have been prevented! Look across the border to the Dutch with their silly language, their beaches and of course their ‘coffee’ shops that don’t sell coffee: zero deaths. What makes Holland different? The Dutch authorities have put people in charge of this who know how to deal with extreme water situations. Cause thousands of years of fighting battles against the sea creates a certain mindset. It is one area with a few artificial lines drawn in it, the border between Germany and Holland being one of them. And across the other Dutch border, the one with Belgium, you see similar mayhem to what you find in Germany. The only logical difference is government policy. If the German and Belgian governments hire Dutch engineers then the next disaster won’t be so bad.
