    It would be useful to see the graph of subsidence of the Venice area.
    It has been reported that the extensive pumping of underground water is a major factor driving the process.

    • JCalvertN(UK) says:

      Wiki: “During the 20th century, when many artesian wells were sunk into the periphery of the lagoon to draw water for local industry, Venice began to subside. It was realized that extraction of water from the aquifer was the cause. The sinking has slowed markedly since artesian wells were banned in the 1960s.” “Studies indicate that the city continues sinking at a relatively slow rate of 1–2 mm per annum.”

    Mr. Heller: Saw this on the news, could see the historic man-made flooding was almost as bad as natural flooding from 50 years ago. Looks like they should move COP25 to Venice.

    Oh darn, a Greek scientist at CalTech just developed a way to turn CO2 into O2:

    Of course, if the government were serious about CO2 really being a threat, they would immediately sink $$billions into developing this for large-scale application everywhere.

    Err…don’t hold your breath. The government’s solemn mandate is to manufacture, not solve, phony crises.

    Oct 28, 2019 Climate engineering: International meeting reveals tensions by Jennifer McNulty, University of California – Santa Cruz

    At this point, the greatest danger of climate engineering may be how little is known about where countries stand on these potentially planet-altering technologies. Who is moving forward? Who is funding research? And who is being left out of the conversation?
