Venice is underwater — and a preview of what climate change will bring to coastal cities

  Venice is underwater — and a preview of what climate change will bring to coastal cities Climate scientists have said Venice is a harbinger of problems facing coastal cities as melting ice sheets and warming oceans raise sea levels to unprecedented heights. “Venice is the pride of all of Italy,” Brugnaro said in a statement, the Associated Press reported, as officials said the city was 70 percent submerged. “Venice is everyone’s heritage, unique in the world.” St. Mark’s Square, the city’s famous piazza, was closed as seagulls swarmed the knee-high water. The flood rose to over six feet in some areas. Italy declared a state of emergency and released 20 million euros to repair the extensive damage.

Adding that humans have "ruthlessly exploited [nature] and given nothing back in return", he called for urgent action on climate change in a bid to save the planet from irreversible damage.

He also reinforced that climate change is a scientific fact, slamming the idea that the crisis has been blown out of proportion by "scaremongering".

  People think Greta Thunberg is a time-traveller thanks to this old photo An uncanny lookalike has got the internet conspiring.Thunberg has yet to publicly comment on her position in the space-time continuum.

Charles , speaking at a reception for the Commonwealth Heads of Government Conference at Clarence House yesterday said: ‘I am firmly of the view that the next 18 months will decide our ability to keep climate change to survivable levels and to restore nature to the equilibrium we need for our survival.’

I fear that even Charles Darwin might not be safe. Will Darwin survive the purge? Few if any British scientists have been commemorated as extensively as Charles Darwin. He is buried in Westminster Abbey, which is perhaps the highest honour that can be bestowed on a British subject.

He added that we should "let kids be kids", but young people like Greta Thunberg and the thousands of Australian children campaigning about climate change are often the ones leading the call for action.

Today Prince Charles will be able to see first hand the results of unchecked climate change, as he and wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, arrive for a visit to the Solomon Islands.

How Vietnamese women are fighting back against climate change .
Planting mangrove trees on the shores of Vietnam is helping protect against global warming—and also sowing the seeds of female empowerment.The flooding continued for four days. Tran and her family fled to her mother’s house. At one point her husband took a boat back to their house, diving under the water to get inside and surviving on a stash of energy drinks left over from Tran’s old job for the few days he spent there.
