Venice floods: Climate change behind highest tide in 50 years, says mayor

RAEL’S COMMENT:
Still the same joke about climate change”? So, why 53 years ago it was higher? “The highest level ever recorded was 194 cm (76 in) during infamous flooding in 1966” and even more almost 800 years ago: “Local chroniclers report that in 1240 the water (that) flooded the streets (was) higher than a man”… more here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acqua_alta

Severe flooding in Venice that has left much of the Italian city under water is a direct result of climate change, the mayor says.

The highest water levels in the region in more than 50 years would leave “a permanent mark”, Venice Mayor Luigi Brugnaro tweeted.

“Now the government must listen,” he added. “These are the effects of climate change… the costs will be high.”

The waters in Venice peaked at 1.87m (6ft), according to the tide monitoring centre. Only once since official records began in 1923 has the tide been higher, reaching 1.94m in 1966.
