Dozens dead after school bus carrying children hit by airstrike in Yemen..
Dozens of children, many believed to be under the age of 10 and on their way to summer camps, have been killed after a Saudi-led coalition airstrike hit a school bus in northern Yemen on Thursday.
The bus was struck as it was driving through a market in the rebel-held province of Saada, according to the Houthi-run Al-Masirah TV.
At least 43 people were killed and 63 injured in the strike, according to the Houthi-held health ministry.
The International Committee for the Red Cross (ICRC) said that a hospital it supports in Saada had received 29 dead bodies of “mainly children” under 15 years of age, and 40 injured, including 30 children….

Saharan dust arrives in Southwest Florida after a 6 thousand miles journey from Africa… Again!
Do you notice anything unusual about our sky today? If you look closely, you’ll see a slight orange haze above Southwest Florida over the next few days…. Because Saharan dust arrives in Florida.
The source of this orange haze is a layer of dry dusty air originating from the Sahara Desert that’s traveled over 6 thousand miles from Africa to South Florida!
It’s actually a fairly common occurrence in the middle of summer as these tiny dust particles get swept up into the air by dust storms in the Sahara and then picked up by the easterly winds in the upper atmosphere all the way across the Atlantic Ocean….
HSBC one of the world’s largest banks tipping point warning! Earth spent its entire resource budget for the year by August 1
HSBC one of the world’s largest banks says the planet is running out of resources and warns that neither governments nor companies are prepared for climate change.
The world spent its entire natural resource budget for the year by August 1, a group of analysts at HSBC said in a note that cited research from the Global Footprint Network (GFN).
That means that the world’s citizens used up all the planet’s resources for the year in just seven months, according to GFN’s analysis.
“In our opinion, these findings and events show that many businesses and governments are not adequately prepared for climate impacts, nor are they using natural resources efficiently,” the HSBC analysts said in the note.
Many banks and asset managers have started factoring climate risks into their decision-making – a move spurred in part by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
But it’s far less common to see multinational banks sound the alarm about climate change so explicitly in their equity research.
To calculate Earth’s natural resource budget, GFN considers the demand for natural resources – which includes food, forests, and marine products – as well as humans’ effects on the environment from factors like carbon emissions.
The combined total is designed to give a comprehensive picture of humanity’s global footprint.
Earth Overshoot Day, the point in a year at which we use up a year’s worth of resources, has been steadily moving forward in time since GFN first started tracking it….
Severe flooding as month’s worth of rain hits Toronto in less than 3 hours, Canada
Environment Canada issued a special weather statement for Toronto, Mississauga and Brampton at around 21:00 EDT on Tuesday, August 7, 2018, ahead of a slow-moving area of tropical moisture-fueled rain showers.
Parts of Toronto experienced widespread flash flooding shortly after as rain quickly overwhelmed drainage systems. Highways 400 and 401, the area near Allen Road, the downtown core and the Toronto Islands were the worst affected.
According to EC, approximately 50 to 75 mm (1.9 – 2.9 inches) of rain fell in the span of two to three hours across parts of the city but some areas received more than 100 mm (3.93 inches), which is more than the city receives during the entire month of August (average: 78.1 mm (3 inches)). However, many areas of Toronto received much less than 22 mm (0.86 inches) of rain, showing the very localized nature of the heavy shower….
