   Climate indicators monitored in Asia

The increase in surface temperatures, the melting of glaciers and the rise in sea levels in 2023 are indicators of how severe warming is in Asia, then it is also necessary to take into account the frequency of heat waves with consequent droughts and temperatures in the northwest Pacific Ocean would be the highest monitored with record values. The number of alerts shows that Asia is the most affected by climate disasters in the world, with a profound impact on societies, economies and the living conditions of populations. Changing the subject but remaining on naturalistic issues to report three victims and eleven missing in the city of Zhaoqing due to floods caused by rainfall and cloudbursts that recently affected southern China, tens of thousands of people evacuated especially in Guangdong.

   Storm with floods in southern China

Tens of millions of people in large areas of southern China were reportedly affected by a wave of bad weather characterized by heavy rainfall and gusty winds; there is also talk of flooding with flooded houses, roads and businesses (a collapsed bridge) with rescuers trying to evacuate the population to save lives, particularly affected by the floods the Guangdong with inevitable damage and inconvenience. It is worth mentioning shifting the attention to Italy that according to forecasts will continue for the next few days especially in some regions the anomalous cold wave with winter temperatures in spring so much so that some ski resorts reopen while crops especially wine suffer and for example attempts are being made to heat the shoots with fires so that the harvest is not lost.

   Tackling extreme events in southern Europe

Areas of Spain, France, Italy and Greece have been affected by more than ten days of extreme heat in 2023 with temperatures as high as forty-six degrees Celsius and this means that adequate measures should be taken to deal with this unhealthy situation that can cause heat stroke and other serious problems to the body up to fatal outcomes. Heatwave fatalities have increased by thirty percent in Europe over the past two decades mainly due to the uncontrolled emission of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. It is worth mentioning changing the subject but remaining on naturalistic themes the wave of almost winter cold that is affecting the northern regions of Italy with damage to some crops following a period with anomalous almost summer temperatures that had caused shoots and flowers to develop in the vegetation.

   Floods in Kenya and Tanzania

Two weeks of heavy rainfall would have caused flooding in large areas of Kenya, Tanzania and eastern Africa; there are at least thirty-two victims, two missing and hundreds of people forced to leave their homes. Particularly affected by the wave of bad weather for example Kakola Ombaka in Kenya and as often happened in these cases people move partially immersed in the water and even using boats. To report changing the subject but remaining on naturalistic themes the alarm of environmentalists for the decision taken by the Indonesian authorities to reduce their dependence on fossil fuels by 2030 with thirty percent of biodiesel, but apparently planting oil palms and therefore with the risk of deforestation to make room for these unhealthy crops.

   Trying to cope with heat waves is crucial

A study of the unprecedented five-day heat wave that swept through Mali and Burkina Faso in late March and early April found that without the pollution produced by fossil fuel burning industries, it would not have been possible to reach temperatures that exceeded forty degrees Celsius day and night, or at least perhaps only once every two centuries. Extreme temperatures have been monitored in the Sahel region, including Senegal, Guinea, Mali, Burkina Faso, Niger, Nigeria and Chad, and will only worsen in the future if this trend continues with prolonged heatwaves becoming more frequent with a very serious impact on the population and nature (for example water resources have been depleted); therefore, it is clear that it is crucial to address this problem.

   Doubts about cloud seeding in Dubai

The recent floods that affected the United Arab Emirates (one victim), Bahrain, Oman (at least twenty victims) according to some could have been caused by the seeding of clouds carried out in the skies of Dubai favored by global warming with really warm sea around Dubai and therefore air very loaded with humidity that reached the atmosphere, but others say that the lack of drainage channels did not allow the water to heavy rains to flow; then insemination with chemical agents cannot form clouds and only condenses the moisture present in the atmosphere. To report changing the subject but remaining on naturalistic themes the volcanic eruption in North Sulawesy, there is talk of hundreds of people evacuated from Mount Ruang; in fact, this stratovolcano has erupted several times.

   Record bleaching of the Great Barrier Reef

Aerial observations would have shown such bleaching (in practice about three-quarters of the corals monitored) due to a very hot summer in Australia this year compared to previous years that there are fears for recovery; in fact, while in the past the bleaching phenomenon happened every ten years, now it happens every year with higher and higher sea temperatures. The Great Barrier Reef is the largest living structure on the planet and is home to over six hundred types of coral and one thousand six hundred and twenty-five species of fish, therefore a treasure trove of biodiversity that risks being lost in a country that is a major exporter of gas and coal. It is worth mentioning changing the subject but remaining on naturalistic themes the floods that hit Dubai caused by intense rainfall and which had recently also affected for example the Oman causing several victims.

   Landslides in Indonesia and floods in Afghanistan

At least eighteen people have been killed in the Tana Toraja region of South Sulawesi due to landslides caused by heavy rainfall that has swept away some houses, including two people in critical condition. Two villages have been affected for long periods by bad weather and in particular last week with the rain that never seemed to stop, eroding the soil and compromising the balance of residential areas positioned on slopes; then rescuers are still digging through rubble and debris in search of any missing people. As far as Afghanistan thirty-three people have died due to floods resulting in landslides in various areas of the country due to seasonal rains. To report changing the subject but remaining on naturalistic issues various fires that are devastating the vegetation in Spain also due to high temperatures.

   A more effective treatment for tuberculosis

To treat drug-resistant tuberculosis researchers for the Asia-Pacific regions have developed a more effective therapy called "BPal" that combines three antibiotics (and possibly even a fourth), apparently a remarkable advance because traditional therapy has heavy side effects and not everyone is able to complete the treatments; so hopefully it will significantly decrease the number of victims which remains really high in the world. It should be noted changing the subject but remaining on healthy issues that in Peru the number of victims from Dengue would have tripled this year (one hundred and seventeen compared to thirty-three last year in the same period of time) due to climate change and the authorities has planned emergency interventions to deal with the situation.

   Destructive fire season in Canada

Last year a record-breaking wildfire season in Canada forced authorities to increase the resources allocated to deal with it and this year forecasts predict a destructive fire season due to an unusually mild winter (more than five degrees Celsius above average in three months from December to February), drought conditions in general, above-average temperatures almost certainly for the spring and summer months; then the snow cover accumulated on the mountains is less than usual and this can only have consequences in the valley. To report shifting the focus to the Amazon in Brazil some point out that in order to protect the forests the Cerrado savannah should not be cleared in exchange which has already lost half of its vegetation replaced for example by intensive cultivation of soya and maize; in fact, it is a vital ecosystem for the country.
