    Golocal247.com news

    The authors of the study predict a 58 percent chance that the next few years will be “anomalously warm,” with a 69 percent chance that earth’s oceans will be too. The study found that that warming trend is not just the result of a steady increase in human-made climate change driven by emissions of greenhouse gases. The study used data from 10 climate-change models and found that natural variabilities were the cause of a global warming “hiatus” in the early 2000s.

  • Flash flood kills 10 hikers in Italian mountain gorge as rescuers say it hit like 'a tsunami'

    Golocal247.com news

    An eight-year-old girl survived a devastating flash flood in a canyon in southern Italy but was found next to a body that rescuers believe may be one of her parents. The girl, named as Chiara, was semi-conscious, covered in thick mud and suffering from hypothermia when she was found in the gorge in Calabria after it was hit by a “tsunami” of muddy water following a severe storm. The seven-mile-long canyon, located in Pollino national park, has 2,300ft-high sheer rock walls which in some places are just 13ft apart. At least two groups of hikers were caught up in the disaster on Monday. While some were able to scramble to higher ground, others were engulfed by the flash flood and drowned. Ten people were killed, with some bodies washed up to three miles downstream by the force of the torrent. Eleven people were injured, five of them seriously. Four children lost either one or both of their parents.

We found her next to a corpse and from what we know, her parents are almost certainly among the victims,” said Pasquale Gagliardi, a doctor with the local helicopter rescue service.

Antonio De Rasis, 32, was guiding hikers through the gorge when it was hit by the 8ft-high wall of water. “With his experience, he would definitely have tried to help the group as much as possible,” said Antonio Carlomagno, the mayor of the town where Mr De Rasis came from. The flash flood also claimed the lives of two models, Miriam Mezzolla, 27, and Claudia Giampietro, 31, who were said to be inseparable and shared a passion for burlesque dancing. Rescuers work in the gorge of the Raganello stream in Civita Credit: WENN.com  An investigation has been launched into the disaster, with questions asked about why people were allowed into the gorge when bad weather was forecast. “It was a real tsunami. These are events that happen once in a lifetime,” said Giacomo Zanfei, a senior official with the mountain rescue service. Italy has experienced strange weather this summer, with torrid heat building up in the mornings and then giving way to thunder, lightning and torrential rain.

The canyoning disaster comes just a week after the collapse of the Morandi bridge in Genoa, which killed 43 people. Raganello gorges in Pollino National Park, Calabria Credit: DEA/V. GIANNELLA  "Italy is tired of crying for the dead. Enough," said Sergio Costa, the environment minister, during a visit to the scene. "If what happened is the result of negligence, sloppiness or a lack of awareness of the risks, we are facing a serious situation that we need to get to the bottom of." “The whole country is deeply saddened by this new tragedy, which has caused many deaths and injuries in Pollino national park,” said Sergio Mattarella, Italy’s president.

  • Some Venezuelans, alarmed by Maduro's measures, speed up plans to flee

    Maduro on Friday stunned the South American nation by announcing a 96 percent devaluation and vowing to peg the bolivar currency to Venezuela's new 'petro', a cryptocurrency that experts have cast doubt on as a functional financial instrument. "I am looking for flights to leave on Wednesday, any way I can," Narvaez said in Venezuela's western oil hub of Punto Fijo, home to massive but deteriorated oil refineries. "I am sure this is going to get worse because the man's ideas lack all logic." Maduro, who argues that he is the victim of a Washington-led "economic war" designed to sabotage his administration through sanctions, said that using the petro will abolish the "tyranny" of the dollar and lead to an economic rebirth in Venezuela, an OPEC member state home to the world's biggest crude oil reserves.

  • Imran Khan to scrap hundreds of  staff and move to three-bed home as he pledges new austerity drive for Pakistan

    Golocal247.com news

    Imran Khan has said he will forego the lavish lodgings normally used by Pakistan's prime ministers and instead live in a three-bedroom house, with only two servants rather than hundreds, as he prepared the country for an austerity drive. The newly sworn-in leader used his first address to the nation to rail against waste as his country faces a severe economic crisis. The former cricket hero said it was shameful that the sprawling prime minister's house had 524 staff and a fleet of 80 vehicles, 33 of them bulletproof.  The cars are to be sold off with only two kept for the new prime minister. “ I want to tell my people, I will live a simple life, I will save your money,” he said. The 65-year-old will live in a three-bed residence normally reserved for the military secretary. Pakistani men watch a television broadcasting Imran Khan's speech Credit: ABDUL MAJEED/AFP Pakistan's new prime minister Imran Khan speaks to the nation in his first televised address in Islamabad Credit: REUTERS He also used his Sunday evening address to call on the rich to start paying taxes and for Pakistani's living overseas to send their money back to domestic banks to help the country's foreign currency crisis. In a 70-minute speech he repeated many of his populist campaign talking points, but offered little detail of how he will stave off an impending economic crisis which his own finance minister has said is dire. Opposition parties also complained that he failed to mention how the country would deal with growing extremism, which Mr Khan has been accused of emboldening by invoking hardline issues like blasphemy on the campaign trail. Pakistan is said to need an urgent bailout of around $12bn to stave off a looming crisis. Loans from China, Saudi Arabia or the International Monetary Fund are all understood to be under consideration. But he complained that the country was in a spiral of debt, borrowing to pay off the interest on earlier loans, and would lose respect by begging elsewhere for money. Instead, he called on Pakistani expats to send their money back home. He said: “I want you to bring your money to Pakistan. To keep your money in Pakistani banks. Right now we are short on dollars. There is a huge trade gap right now.” Mr Khan also spoke of his country's need to tackle poverty and malnutrition and promised to reduce some of the world's highest maternal death rates and infant mortality rates. He said Pakistan was in severe danger from climate change and spoke about the need to educate the 22.8 million Pakistani children who are out of school. Meanwhile his new foreign minister said on Monday that he wanted talks with neighbouring India and Afghanistan. Shah Mahmood Qureshi, also stressed that the civilian government would determine foreign policy, potentially putting Mr Khan's new administration on a collision with the powerful military. Pakistan's generals have ruled the country for much of its history and view policy on national security, India and Afghanistan as their realm. Mr Qureshi said that "the foreign policy of Pakistan will be formed here at the foreign office."
