Brazil:At least 30 Killed
After Devastating Landslides
--The Telegraph
Jan. 26, 2020

At least 30 people have been killed in two days of intense storms in southeastern Brazil, officials from the state of Minas Gerais said on Saturday.

Seventeen people are also missing, seven injured, and some 3,500 have been forced out of their homes following a series of landslides and building collapses.

Television footage showed images of overflowing rivers, flood neighborhoods and trees and utility poles knocked over by the rushing water.

Serbians Take to Streets Demanding Cleaner Air

Jan. 17, 2019

Hundreds of protesters, some wearing surgical masks and respirators, took to the streets of the Serbian capital Belgrade on Friday, demanding the government tackle severe air pollution throughout the European Union candidate country.

Belgrade and several other Serbian towns, along with the capitals of neighboring Bosnia, Kosovo and North Macedonia, have been choked by dense smog for days, topping lists of the world’s most polluted cities ahead of Delhi, Calcutta, Lahore and Beijing.

“We are all breathing the same air ... it doesn’t matter if you are a member of the (ruling) Progressive Party ... or you are one of the people gathered here, so let’s do something to fix this,” Radomir Lazovic, a protest leader told Reuters.


Australian Beach Town
Devastated by Fire

Jan. 17, 2020

When Livia Albeck Ripka was about 15 months old and could only say a few words, one of them was “baitfish.” Her family had just returned from their annual summer vacation in Mallacoota, a beach town of a few hundred on the southeast coast of Australia, where they would catch tiny, glimmering fish and use them to lure flathead out of the water.

After they returned home, a patch of light shimmered on the wall, and according to her mother, she pointed to it and described what she saw: “baitfish.”

It was the Australian summer of 1990-91, and on the other side of the world, the Israeli military was handing out gas masks to its citizens because of the threat of attacks from Iraq. But in a fishing village thousands of miles away, where giant goannas scuttled through gumtrees and kookaburras laughed, her siblings were hunting for wild animal scat and leaping into the ocean.

The Australian Wildfires
Effect on Threatened Species

Jan.13, 2020

Until last week, the Kangaroo Island glossy black cockatoo was one of Australia’s conservation success stories. Thanks to a recovery program that began in 1995, its wild population increased from 150 to 400, and its status was downgraded from critically endangered to endangered.

Now it’s part of an unfolding horror story.

Fires have raged across nearly 50% of Kangaroo Island, a 4,400-square-kilometer isle off the coast of the state of South Australia, destroying the habitat of the great majority of the birds. It’s unclear how many glossy black cockatoos (Calyptorhynchus lathami halmaturinus) survived. For those that escaped the flames, food may be scarce; it eats the seeds of single tree species in its habitat, the drooping she oak.
