Eurasian Wryneck Jynx torquilla

10,000 Birds

Sadly, I have never seen a Red-throated Wryneck , which is only to be expected for a bird found only in sub-Saharan Africa, considering that I have not yet set foot on that continent. Until a month ago I had never seen the Eurasian Wryneck either, but the trip to Hungary took care of that gap on the life list easily. They migrate to warmer climes in Africa and south Asia to winter. Birds Eurasian Wryneck Hungary Swarovski woodpeckers

Great Reed Warblers breed across huge chunks of Europe and Asia and winter across large swaths of southeast Asia and sub-Saharan Africa.

Shocking analysis by country of years left to zero emissions

Green Blog

The World will have to take action against the more notorious climate criminal and climate racist countries such as Australia through Sanctions, Boycotts, Sporting Boycotts (as were successfully applied to Apartheid South Africa through exclusion from the Olympic Games and other events), Green Tariffs, International Court of Justice litigations and International Criminal Court prosecutions.

White Stork in New York

10,000 Birds

Fortunately, she had the presence of mind to get a picture (not the one at the top of this post, which was taken in Hungary). That seems highly unlikely though, as White Storks don’t even like flying across the Mediterranean on their migrations back and forth between Africa and Eurasia. Imagine coming home after a long day at work, pulling into your driveway, looking up on the roof, and seeing a White Stork perched there.

Ukranian Coal Plant “Facelift” Actually Means More Pollution

Sierra Club Compass

Included are large corporations that have long profited by pushing dirty coal technology abroad, including Black & Veatch, which benefited from the taxpayer-funded Kuslie coal plant in South Africa, a project that was built despite local objections in an area that already exceeded South African limits for air pollution.

First Outbreak of Usutu Virus in Germany

10,000 Birds

The Usutu Virus’ origins are in Africa south of the Sahara. These observations suggest that the probability of being stung by a mosquito at the nest is one of the main factors: small non-migratory birds in open nests are affected the most, while larger bird species, species that migrate to Africa (immune?), The first detection outside Africa occurred in Vienna/Austria between 2001 and 2006. Okay, I meant to write an entertaining post. I honestly did.

Activists to target Danish Ministry of Defense to highlight fate of climate refugees

Green (Living) Review

The Program also promotes the increasing use of hi-tech military equipment such as airborne early warning planes, 'unmanned autonomous drones' in the UK, and naval ships off the west Coast of Africa as well as the payment of millions of Euros to African countries to build and house internment camps to help manage migration to the EU.

Island Nations can fight Climate Genocide with Carbon Debt & Carbon Credit Analysis

Green Blog

At the 2011 Durban Climate Conference the US, with the help of its climate criminal lackeys Australia and Canada, again succeeded in preventing requisite international climate change action. It was reported that Island States had again pleaded with other representatives to avert “ climate genocide ” but their pleas fell on deaf ears at Durban, as at Cancun, as at Copenhagen.

Analysis by country of fossil fuel burning-based Carbon Debt and Carbon Credit

Green Blog

Fossil fuel burning yielding the greenhouse gas (GHG) carbon dioxide (CO2) is a major component of man-made global warming. In relation to carbon pollution from the burning of fossil fuels, Net Carbon Debt is equal to the Historical Carbon Debt (from fossil fuel burning since the start of the Industrial Revolution in circa 1750) minus the Carbon Credit (the residual carbon pollution from fossil fuel burning permitted between now and zero emissions in 2050).
