Where America dreams of/goes birding?

10,000 Birds

A lot more needs to be done to protect and sustainably utilise that biodiversity, although with the Brazil’s current president, it seems highly unlikely. Not surprisingly, ten of these 19 countries are in the Americas, but what does surprise me, there are just 4 in Africa and just 1 in Asia (2 if you count Indonesia).

President Obama's blackmail threat over EU Referendum

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) Obama said that Brexit would put UK at ‘back of the queue’ for trade deal in huge EU Referendum intervention However, someone on social media mentioned that the Americans do not, per se, use the term queue and thus it would appear that the text was written by the UK government and given to the US President to use.

The United States of America is a Constitutional Republic – much in the same way that Britain is a Constitutional Monarchy – but it is NOT a democracy and was never intended to be thus.
