One of the Drakensberg Rockjumper ’s most reliable stake-outs is Sani Pass, a winding 4×4 track from the village of Himeville into the mountain kingdom of Lesotho.

Weird Weather - the Strangest Places to Find Snow in the World


Lesotho. While we’re used to seeing snow and opportunities for skiing in the French Alps, Austria, and in notable North American resorts like Aspen, there are many parts of the world that you might not automatically associate with being able to ski and snowboard. From southern Africa to the Middle East, and including parts of the United States, what are some of the places from around the world that represent more unusual places to find snow?

Yemen, Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan among the world’s hungriest countries (UN report)

Yemen — Village in the Manakhah District of the Sana’a Governorate in the Haraz Mountains. Some 41 countries continue to be in need of external assistance for food, with conflicts acting as the primary cause of high levels of food insecurity and adverse weather conditions – particularly rainfall shortages in Africa – acutely affecting food availability and access for millions of people, a quarterly report by the United Nations says.

Top 10 from Home

10,000 Birds

This was tough because this excluded species that occur in two countries within South Africa’s geographical area, Lesotho and Swaziland. I must be home-sick because last weekend I found myself browsing through my “SASOL Birds of Southern Africa&#. This prompted me to compile a list of my Top 10 birds from home. Initially I came up with a list of 64 favorite birds, certainly not a Top 10, and no matter how hard I tried I could not whittle this down further.

Birding and Safari-ing South Africa with the ABA

I wanted Penguins. And Sunbirds.

Urban Water Footprint: Extensive and Expensive

Nature Conservancy - Science

My favorite quirky example is Johannesburg, South Africa, which ultimately gets water from another country — Lesotho, moves it through a tunnel under the mountains, dumps it in the Vaal River, and then eventually extracts it for use in the city. The Salve Paccha Aquaduct, which transports water from Cayambe Coca to the city of Quito, runs through the páramos landscape at the foot of Ecuador’s Andean range. Photo credit: ©Bridget Besaw/TNC.

Protecting Medicinal Plants

Eco Friendly Daily

Lesotho and parts of South Africa boast Pelargonium sidoides , an extensively used medicinal species that would benefit from study and appropriate management. Next time you are tempted to pick your own chamomile or echinacea, give a thought to sustainable plant populations. Many medicines and herbal remedies are based on traditional approaches. But as the human population continues to grow, demand for plant products intensifies.

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).
