Reposted from @time U.S. Secret Service agents stand by as President #Trump, not pictured, observes tornado damage in Cookeville, east of Nashville, on March 6. Parts of #Tennessee were devastated this week by a series of tornadoes that hit multiple counties, leaving at least two dozen people dead. More than 140 buildings were destroyed, trees were mangled and power outages left more than 50,000 homes without electricity. In nearby Baxter, one resident likened the scene to “some type of war zone.” Read more about how survivors are grappling with the aftermath—and whether to rebuild—at the link in bio.

While the Australian bush/wild fire has taken a break on the soil of these Kangaroo owning humans, it is yet another destruction happening as a ginormous size hail drops down on the land yet again, causing all kinds of destructions.

The news as revealed by bbcnews has yet again startled the world for Australians.

Extreme #Canadian #Temperature begins startling #Nigerian #Migrants

Screenshot_20200119-194105

Before you commence reading this, pray for your relatives in Canada as they wakeup to snow shut doors. The Nigerian migrants to Canada have had a little or nothing to complain about knowing fully well that the country is simply an Iceland. But when this however changed when they woke up to their doors and cars buried feets of snow, it gave them a cause to worry, especially the new migrants.

Those who are experiencing their first January in Canada are watching on with dropped jaws. But then again are they forgetting who they are? Despite being black are you in anyway expecting someone to remind you of the fact that you are a Nigerian? You have survived way worse situations, so this is nothing compared to what you have overcome as a Nigerian.

So get creative and survive this as well. Get to work, get to the mall, get to where to meet to get to. If the owners of that land are getting by, be a good son/daughter of the Nigerian and Canadian soil and get by. Long live the Federal republic of Nigeria, Long live Canada and long live those who persist and persevere. Live and thrive, Live and strive, Live and fly.

Disturbed by the #Australianfires #Lewishamilton donates $500k to Australian fire service

lewishamilton-1578596790465

Reposted from @lewishamilton – It saddens me deeply to know that over 1 billion animals in Australia died a painful death, no way out, not their fault. My love of animals is no secret and I can’t help but grieve for the defenceless animals thought to have died so far, pushing certain species closer to extinction. I’m lucky enough to visit Australia often and I know first-hand how beautiful the country is. Keep fighting Australia. I’ve spent some time speaking to people in Australia who are working at the heart of this and I’m filled with admiration for everything they are doing.

I implore you to join me in thinking about the impact we are having on our planet. Let’s work together to make small changes, and encourage our family and friends to do the same, so we can help shift the direction we’re going in.

I’m donating $500K to support @wireswildliferescue @wwf_australia and the Rural Fire Services. If you are able and haven’t already, you can donate too. Every little helps.

from @lewishamilton – Focus on what you love doing. Set your sights and dreams high. Don’t ever let somebody tell you you can’t or you’re not good enough. You need to believe (if you really aren’t good at it then you need to be realistic too) nobody can do it for you, only help along the way but you are going to have to do the heavy lifting! Let’s set our sights higher for 2020, never backing down! I believe in you and so should you! #letsgo #believeinyourself

Reposted from @lewishamilton (@get_regrann) – Surfing into the new year, one of my favourite things to do. There is much to do, so much to see. Much work is ahead of us but I try to set my sights high on things which most people would say are impossible, envision it and work to manifest them. What are YOU going to do to make the difference for you this year? #believeinyourself – #regrann

In His Mercies, God sends rain to assist the fighters of #Australiafires

nowspacetime-1578479488396

Isn’t he God? And is there anything he can’t do? Well we are grateful for his change of heart, pity in humanity, and gift of rain.

Reposted from @nowspacetime – Nearly 200 fires are still burning across the entire country of Australia, with smoke spreading across thousands of miles — affecting places as far as New Zealand, where ash has turned glaciers yellow.

More than 15 million acres of land has been scorched — 7x the 2019 Amazon fires and 3x the 2018 California fires. The death toll has climbed to at least 24 people and more than 1,200 homes have been destroyed.

It’s estimated that 8000 koalas (one third of the koala population in New South Wales) have been killed –– a figure that is feared to be even higher as the fires continue. Due to their slow movement, koalas are more at risk as they’re unable to escape the flames.

These are the devastating effects of anthropogenic climate change. This is the slaughter of life, the destruction of nature and the loss of hope. Let’s make 2020 the year that we stand up for the climate. It’s time to speak up for the voiceless and take action for what is right.

Thankfully, conditions are beginning to ease as firefighters are gaining control over several dangerous fires. The awareness shared through social media has helped raise tens of millions of dollars, money which will help aid first responders and animal rescuers to do all they can to put an end to this nightmare.

#Newzealand sends help, while #Britain sends ‘thoughts and prayers’🙄 to victims of #Australiafire

leonardodicaprio-1578174387658

Talk about the significant item sent. Maybe u am being too extra, but what exactly can these victims do with thoughts and prayers? can thoughts and prayers help them start up life? can they now rebuild what’s lost and save more lives with thoughts and prayers? #damn

from @kensingtonroyal – We continue to be shocked and deeply saddened to hear about the fires that are destroying homes, livelihoods and wildlife across much of Australia.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all the people and communities who are affected by this devastating event.

We send our deepest condolences to the families and friends of those who have tragically lost their lives, and the brave firefighters who continue to risk their own lives to save the lives of others.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

from @theroyalfamily – Her Majesty The Queen has sent a message of condolence to the Governor General of Australia, Governor of New South Wales, Governor of Queensland, and Governor of Victoria and to all Australians: “I have been deeply saddened to hear of the continued bushfires and their devastating impact across many parts of Australia.
My thanks go out to the emergency services, and those who put their own lives in danger to help communities in need.
Prince Philip and I send our thoughts and prayers to all Australians at this difficult time. Elizabeth R”

from @hilaryduff – The next photo is absolutely gut wrenching. The fires in beautiful Australia are covering the entire country 14.7 million acres have burned. That is an unfathomable number. Half a billion animals GONE. Burned alive. 💔💔 its a strange feeling of guilt to be enjoying my honeymoon in South Africa in a similar landscape where the animals are healthy and free and such devastating circumstances for others occurring at the same moment. Homes burned, people displaced and unfortunately some lives lost. @Matthewkoma and I are coming up with a number that we feel comfortable with to donate and will keep you posted on that. Please do what you can

#Australia suffers a devastating #Bushfire

chrisbrownofficial-1578161327887

This is such a disturbing natural disasters being placed upon this beautiful country called Australia. I honestly hope that they get to recover and survive this horror.

from @cnn- Dressed in a kid-size uniform and holding a pacifier in his mouth, the 19-month-old son of a firefighter killed while battling Australia’s bushfires received a medal to honor his father’s bravery. During the funeral for Geoffrey Keaton on Thursday, the local fire service’s commissioner kneeled down to pin the medal on the boy’s shirt. Keaton was one of two firefighters who died last month when a falling tree hit their vehicle.

Reposted from @shanigrimmond – ⚠️ OUR COUNTRY IS ON FIRE – URGENT HELP IS NEEDED ⚠️ This is absolutely heartbreaking 😩 19 people have lost their lives and dozens of people are still missing, with thousands of homes already destroyed. 5.9 million hectares have been burnt (this is four times bigger than the amazon fire) and half a billion animals have been estimated to have lost their lives. To put this into perspective the total area of land destroyed by these bushfires is larger than the whole country of Belgium. Hundreds of thousands of people have been evacuated due to worsening conditions this weekend.

WE NEED EVERYONE TO SPREAD AWARENESS – we need help!! You can donate here – @salvosau, @nswrfs, @wireswildliferescue, @redcrossau 🙏🏼 EVERY cent counts. – #regrann

Tourism threatens the very existence of Komodo Dragons in Indonesia —- #nytimes

leonardodicaprio–1567235637944

Reposted from @leonardodicaprio – #Regram #RG @nytimes Komodo dragons resemble dinosaurs that missed their cue for extinction, but environmentalists worry an invasion of tourists to their island lair could bring them to a similar fate. The 10-foot lizards are native only to a scattering of islands in Indonesia, and while Komodo tourism generates significant cash for one of the country’s poorest regions, it has also brought piles of trash, human encroachment and occasional lizard smuggling. Like other tourist destinations around the world, from Venice to the Galápagos, Komodo National Park is at risk of being wrecked by its own popularity. Some environmentalists worry that the stampede of visitors has set the ecosystem off kilter, and local leaders aim to close the island of Komodo, where the largest population of dragons lives, for at least a year. Even residents would have to leave. “If we don’t give the dragons their habitat, they will be extinct within the next 50 to 100 years,” the island’s deputy governor said. @adamjdean took these photos.

Brazil to reject the £16m offered by world leaders to help tackle the Amazon wildfires #amazon #climatechange

leonardodicaprio-1566936634286

Contrary to what the world may have thought, Brazil is not infact going to desperately and freely accepted the money you all have contributed to help then save the Amazon from further incineration by wildfire. 

The Country thoughtful and considerate along side preserving  enough to be housing the world’s largest vegetation is faces with one of the most horrific event of their lives and they are rejecting H elp from the eodld intackling it? That’s true people, Brazil has expressed its intent to reject the £16m offered by world leaders to help tackle the wildfires engulfing the Amazon, claiming it should be spent on reforesting Europe rather than ‘colonialist practises’. The aid was agreed during emergency climate talks at the G7 summit over the weekend in a session that was skipped by Donald Trump.

Environmental groups dismissed the sum – equivalent to just £2.3m per G7 country – as ‘chump change’ that failed to address the causes of the fires.

Satellite data has recorded more than 41,000 fires in the Amazon region so far this year – more than half of those happened this month alone. So the Area being under such scrutiny by both the good and the bad, is now being suggested by its owners, to be replicated in one of the other sides of the world.

This is because the world needs balance between the poison and filters and this clearly can no longer be a task left only for the weakened and exhausted Amazon. Even though some believe that the fire was not entirely a natural disaster, as the region is trying to send a message across to the world. We have heard thag message and we will do our best. For the 3rd world countries, our natural environment is still intact, unlike the G7 Countries. #justsaying

Thunder fires multiple people at PGA tour championship

instablog9ja-1566717609984

Come this way Nigerians, Before we continue, let’s make it clear that someone who was present right there had angered his/her village people prior to the golf.. Nature does this for sure, but village people do the most, and for that reason they are a suspect in this case.

Several people were injured Saturday afternoon during a lightning storm at East Lake Golf Club, which is hosting the Tour Championship in Atlanta.

 

The lightning appeared to strike a tree, sending other golf fans running. Four adult males and a juvenile were seeking shelter near a pine tree when lightning struck the tree. A sixth person also had injuries, police said.

 

We hope they were not severely injured, and we wish them a quick recovery while the organizers sage that field to combat a future reoccurrence.

HOT SUMMER: July 2019 becomes the hottest month ever recorded on EARTH — Experts

berniesanders-1566028714467

“The heat is on” now takes a new meaning after scientists have concluded that July now goes down in history as the hottest month.

The significance wasn’t infact felt, because we didn’t Hear people complain or even burn up, but record has shown that this is the truth.

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), July 2019 is the hottest month ever recorded on earth.

Apparently the average global temperature in July was 1.71 degrees above the average which is 60.4 degrees F. Breaking the record held by July of 2016 coincidentally. The most alarming part about all of this is that 9 of the 10 hottest Julys have happened since 2005 and the last 5 have happened in the last 5 years. Meaning every year it’s getting hotter and hotter.

As we all know, extreme heat isn’t good news. #balleralert

While Trump is in denial of all these happenings concerning global warming or climate change, he is frightening the sane occupants of the Unuted states, and impressing the weird ones, and the sane ones are not going to take it in silence.

Credit to from @berniesanders  – This is an emergency and we need to treat it like one.
