Lorenzo Quinn, Support, 2017

If you visit Venice any time before Nov. 26 you'll get a lesson in climate change. No, the city won't be submerged under water, as some have feared, but you will see what one artist views as the cause of global warming: hands.

Artist Lorenzo Quinn's "Support" installation is a PSA against the dangers of what he views as man-made climate change and its effects on Venice. Quinn "wants to speak to the people in a clear, simple and direct way through the innocent hands of a child," he writes on his Instagram.

Why it matters: Venice is a UNESCO World Heritage site and the city, which spreads across 118 small islands, has suffered from consistently rising sea levels over the past few decades. In the 1950s, the city's historic St. Marks Square flooded 20 times per year, but now it floods around 60 times a year. And climate scientists have found that global ocean levels could increase 0.6 feet to 1.1 feet if the earth's temperature rises just two degrees celsius.

The sculpted hands — which are modeled after his son's — emerge from the water, stand 27 feet tall, weigh approximately 5,800 pounds and support the Ca' Sagredo Hotel in Venice. "It evokes a powerful message which is that united we can make a stand to curb the climate change that affects us all," Quinn writes. "Support" aims to "generate an instinctive and immediate understanding of the environmental impact for places such as Venice," per Quinn's statement for Halcyon Gallery.

Don't forget: The EPA removed the climate change science page from its website (the first time that's happened in 20 years), signaling the current administration's shifting narrative of the causes and effects of climate change.

Why picking a jury for the Derek Chauvin trial is so hard

The tough task of selecting a jury for former MPD officer Derek Chauvin's trial for the killing of George Floyd is set to begin Monday.

The state of play: "This case may be the most highly publicized criminal trial in a long time. ... That means that it's harder to find people who really have an open mind," Richard Frase, University of Minnesota Law School professor of criminal law, told Axios.

Why it's so hard to sign up for vaccinations online

The verdict from Americans trying to get the COVID vaccine is in: the sign-up websites are awful.

Why it matters: Appointment systems are a vital part of getting Americans vaccinated, but a series of missed opportunities, at every level, left local governments scrambling. And the frustrating, confusing process now carries the risk that some people will simply give up.

Convicting police officers is rare — even when caught on video

Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin's trial for the murder of George Floyd stands out because it's so rare for officers to face any charges for deadly force — even for actions caught on video. But advocates hope times are changing.

Why it matters: Nearly a year after a video of Floyd's choking death went viral, advocates have pushed through proposals in states and cities to make it easier to hold police officers accountable for excessive force. The plans still face resistance from police unions.
