Six months on from the worst flooding in Pakistan's history, a medic in eastern Balochistan describes what he is seeing daily. Khalid Saleem, who works for the charity Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders), says many people are still living in shelters at the side of the road and must walk miles if they need healthcare. There are high levels of malnutrition, malaria and skin conditions such as scabies. We also talk Dr Zainab Samad, from Aga Khan University in Islamabad, who is the author of a major new report on the country's health. She describes how people in these areas were already worse off even before the floods and says it will take years to recover – but it is everyone's responsibility to help make society healthier. We hear from Dr Lindsay Dewa and medical student Simi Adewale on their project to explore digital connection during the COVID-19 pandemic. Imperial College London worked with young people to make a short film about the impact on young people's mental health. And our guest is family doctor Ann Robinson, who'll discuss the latest studies and health news, including strict new alcohol guidance for Canada and how “bed dancing” is helping hospital patients.

Guests: Andrew KruczkiewiczIntroduction: Our world constantly cycles through drought and flooding, drenching one side while parching another. It may seem erratic at times, but it's all Mother Nature's way of keeping the balance. And to the people that are on the ground that rely on the water for food and business, it may seem unfair. At the end of the day, when people are caught in the crossfire of extreme rainfall and flooding events, there are some that are more impacted than others. Is that really fair? Today we're talking to Andrew Kruczkiewicz who has been studying these impacts and how we as a society can improve to avoid the extent of them.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Farmland on the Somerset Levels is flooded, but farmers say they feel everyone's better prepared than in 2014 when floods wreaked devastation on homes and businesses. They say the Environment Agency has been more pro-active installing extra pumps, rivers are not so silted and sluice gates are in operation. However, they say it will be vital to pump water off the farmland where it's collected, in case the rain continues. Also they say farmers whose fields are used as temporary reservoirs, should be reimbursed for that. Trucks are perhaps the most useful bit of kit on a farm - from hauling a few bales to the school run, and now they're being put to use in Ukraine. Old four-by-fours, many from farms, are being driven out to the war zone and adapted for use in fighting the Russians. We spoke to Freddie from Ukraine Equipment, as he delivered a pick-up to the Donetz region and also to Yarislav, an officer in the Ukraine army. All week on Farming Today we've been talking about machinery. Paul Joseph is a farmer and contractor, who's invested in kit worth millions over the years, and in 10 fulltime staff to use it. They work on 70 farms around Wiltshire and do everything from cutting silage to harvesting. But this time of year - when the weather permits - it's muck spreading. It's pumped from lagoons and applied to crops - and as fertiliser prices soar, using hi-tech machines to apply it precisely is more important than ever.

Guest: Jason DeeseIntroduction: Lighting is one of the most spectacular weather phenomena, but it can also be one of the deadliest. About 2,000 people across the globe are killed each year by lightning. You might picture a beach in the summertime when you think of lightning, but it can strike during various weather events. In the recent lake-effect snow event for western New York, “thundersnow” was heard many times due to the vigorous storm system. Today's guest, Jason Deese, is going to discuss the recent events in western New York as well as other important information about lightning.

It's difficult to tell now but some of the heat waves that we have experienced over the past couple of years were thought to be impossible 50 or 60 years ago and we are now seeing natural disasters around the world that are being caused by two or more consequences from climate change (drought brought on by extreme heat waves and lack of rain for extended periods of time). The new scientific field that tracks climate change-attributed disasters will help inform policymakers on how to handle coastal management, reservoirs, and aquifers in this new future if we are not able to cut greenhouse gas emissions in half by the end of the century.   Link to article: https://bit.ly/3CBgYOw   Fill out our listener survey: https://www.speakupforblue.com/survey   Join the audio program - Build Your Marine Science and Conservation Career: https://www.speakupforblue.com/career   Facebook Group: https://bit.ly/3NmYvsI Connect with Speak Up For Blue: Website: https://bit.ly/3fOF3Wf Instagram: https://bit.ly/3rIaJSG Twitter: https://bit.ly/3rHZxpc

Destructive flooding caused by torrential rains has created a deadly disaster in California. The death toll rivals the worst wildfires and points to a common cause for both: drought. Brian Ferguson with California's Office of Emergency Services explains how a "weather whiplash" of dry years followed by heavy rain and snow can lead to dangerous outcomes. And NPR's Lauren Sommer reports on how officials are hoping to store more storm water as a way to prevent future floods and fight the ongoing drought.

The language that is used to talk about immigrants in America is something that really bothers Chris. A common and unproductive trope that's heard in media is “a flood of immigrants to the border.” At the same time, there is a growing dependance at the foundational level on the labor of immigrants in the U.S. As natural disasters are happening with increasing frequency and intensity, communities are relying more and more on immigrant laborers. Saket Soni is director of Resilience Force, a national initiative that advocates on behalf of disaster recovery workers. He's also author of the upcoming book, “The Great Escape: A True Story of Forced Labor and Immigrant Dreams In America.” The subject of the story starts when Soni, who was 28 years old at the time, received an anonymous phone call from an Indian migrant who told him about incredibly inhumane worker conditions at a labor camp in Mississippi. The extraordinary journey that follows is told in the fascinating read about how Soni and 500 workers devised a bold plan, after a series of clandestine meetings, to escape and bring attention to their cause in Washington, D.C. He joins WITHpod to discuss writing about one of the largest human trafficking cases in modern American history, his deeply personal story coming to the U.S. from India, the importance of a well-protected skilled resilient workforce, rebuilding social fabrics around this topic and more.
