Flooding in Venice

Have any of you been seeing footage of people's shops? It's crazy. I've been seeing multiple videos on social media of flooded studios. It weird seeing a hot furnace with water almost up to the sill and steam pouring out from all around.

Really sad.

Link to CBS News with a report from 20 mins. ago.

I have been following Fabiano Amadi. The videos are heart-breaking.... it looks like the beginning of the end of a tradition that dates back to the 13th Century..... Fabiano did declare that he will be back through all of the miseries.

Im watching several friends go through this. Certainly heartbreaking but the beginning of the end? I think not. Its happened many times over the years and those traditions will continue.

Yes, Fabiano is posting a lot of vids. to fb.

Yes, Larry, it has happened in the past. The last one of this magnitude was over fifty years ago. Climate change will increase the frequency of these, and they will need to adapt. But how? As sea level continues to rise how do you keep the water out? You can't jack up the foundation on a whole city.

These are just rhetorical questions.

Beginning of the end?

Doubtful.

Climate change will displace at least 150 million people in coastal areas and Venice is no exception. It's a matter of moving. What do you think will happen to Holland, Vietnam, Miami, the gulf coast?

You move your hot shop to a second floor. Problem solved.

Problem. Many of the foundations in Venice are rather pourous. There were even articles about it this week. Structurally, Venice is threatened.

Same thing's been going on with the Taj Mahal for years. In addition to pollution issues the foundation has been sinking (next to a river).

See my update today in the "cords" section... tik-tok-tik-tok-tik-tok.

The environment is the environment. Protecting it is not really the issue. It is what it is. People affected it. People can change what they do.

New Mexico has vast fossil remains from an inland sea.
