Venice floods dozen times a year, but latest inundation is a disaster

They have been flooding since the 5th Century because their land mass is so much lower then other land masses around them. They usually flood primarily in the winter. It has increased in-depth mainly because the landmass has been sinking along with Rising water. If they were smart they would have deconstructed and moved all of their beautiful historic monuments away from this area a long time ago, they have known this for 100s of years.... It would have cost billions to do but if they're so concerned that's what they should have done

I have visited Venice for 3 days in 2003 as part of a training program when had the opportunity to meet Venice city authority officials, scientists, engineers and town planners. All they described that not only Italy, also the EU as well as other scientifically, technically and financially advanced countries of the world were trying their best to face this problem. There was a PowerPoint presentation on the-then underway gigantic task of placing some mechanical devices on the mouth of the Lagoon so these floating metallic devices (some sort of floating platforms, for me, a non-technical person to understand easily) could become obstacles in the time of high tide. We, the participants of the training, were clearly in a position to understand that the presenters / speakers (scientists, engineers, technicians, planners and decision maker) themselves were NOT convinced that the planned intervention would work. Now, after long 16 years, we all see what a grave disaster taking place there in Venice. feeling really really bad for beautiful Venice.

*Perhaps those who live in Venice ,plus the tourists are dumping waste everywhere around ,climate change is not to blame for that .*

Watch out, you're going to give the Mud Flooders something to talk about. Not to mention the Flat Earthers are going to say "See, if the Earth was a Ball..."

Venice is sinking That's not due to climate change.

Frank Blangeard It has nothing to do with sinking!!! It has to do with tides! High tide (acqua alta or alta marea in italian) is a daily phenomenon... Problem is when it rains Costantly for two weeks, which is normal in other Italian cities like Milan or Turin , but not in Venice !

Expect more of this type of news. Things aren’t going to get any better. It’s coming and it’s close. Nothing will stop it .

Maybe get that anti flooding project done that started construction 16 years ago and isn't even close to completion. Now the cost of damage is close to a billion euros, just to clean it up just for it to continue to keep flooding to cost another billion in a city that will be under water in a hundred years.

J D - 22 days ago
This one was inevitable, you can't build on a swamp and expect it to last. NYC and DC were built on swamps too, now they'll have to spend billions to ward off rising seas. And they're lucky enough to be defendable, Miami is lost as soon as the seas rise 1-2 feet, not even a four-sided wall could prevent flooding in Miami due to the porous foundation.

They say the same thing about the docks where I live. We had them underwater several times this summer. It was like that when I was a kid, but it's worse now. The reason, however, is erosion. Pilings gradually sink. You can look at people's docks and see how they are uneven. It's just something that happens over time, you just have the dock raised a few inches. It's not friggin climate change
