This article is an edited extract from my book Venice in Environmental Peril? Myth and Reality (2012).
The article was published on 27 January 2012 and can be read by clicking on the link below:

So the article gives you a free taster, but not the entire conclusion!
I hope it will entice you to purchase the book, which can be done using the link to Amazon below:
