In the final analysis, Venice is facing atrocious ramifications from climate change. Floods continually threaten the city and at times can not be prevented, even with expensive barriers. These floods are a result of the sea levels rising from raised temperatures of the planet, one of the main topics of climate change. Moreover, the city of Venice is sinking expeditiously with the removal of water from canals that run under the city, which are necessary due to the modern problem of water scarcity. Finally, Venice undergoes treacherous storms that wipe the city as

weather patterns shift and increase in harshness, a direct outcome of climate change. Climate change affects the world, but specifically in Venice we see how climate change can affect people in which ways we don’t usually think about. From floodings, sinking cities, to severe storms, climate change has contributed to the eventual fall of Venice, Italy.
