Border closes for migrants

Wildfires in California

Crisis for world’s oceans

Large crowds of frustrated, exhausted people are spending the night at the Serbian border with Hungary, where Hungarian authorities have completed a new razor wire fence and closed off unofficial crossing points.

In California this is the sound of summer – they call it the ‘valley fire’ and no one here can remember anything like it. It has alreadyconsumed an area twice the size of San Francisco, and still it burns.

The ocean is on the brink of collapse, according to a WWF report released today. The study into the health and habitats of marine species has found that populations more or less halved between 1970 and 2012. The report says the declines may be steepest in the fish we need for the global food supply.
