The Flooding in Venice is a Warning

We all know that climate change is real.The evidence of the man-made destruction of our planet is all too real.

In Venice, the catastrophic and historic flooding is a warning.

Venice, like many major cities around the world, is based on or near water. As nourishing and important as water is, it can also be destructive.

Those who deny or minimize the effects of climate change cannot ignore what the people of Venice are going through. Granted, Venice does flood regularly because of it’s topography. However, if this can happen in Venice, where else can it happen?

We must address the underlying issues of climate change now. If we don’t, I fear that we will all be living in a version of Venice.
