Venice in Peril

I’m visiting Venice today, a remarkable city built on an infrastructure of canals and walking paths instead of roads. It’s also a city uniquely exposed to climate change. Indeed, last year’s historic floods were a real eye opener.

Today, I made a donation to Venice in Peril. The organization works to restore Venetian monuments, buildings and works of art. It isn’t tied to climate change linked flooding; it’s been at its mission for 40 years, long before the effects of climate change began to be clearly documented in Venice. But the encroachment of the sea has made the organization’s great work all the more poignant.
