Country in North Africa
There are at least twenty-eight lilly-livered, yellow-bellied cowards in the House and Senate. Naturally, they're all MAGATS, thrilled to bomb the life out of brown people, but totally browning their own undies at the thought of crossing their Daddy Vladdy. Meanwhile, as democracy burns, so does our planet . . . and drowns. The data are in: flooding in Libya, Greece, and Turkey was made more likely and far worse by climate catastrophe. Does Cavin' McCarthy have any self-respect remaining? How often do you think of the Roman Empire?
Storm Daniel devastated the city of Derna in Libya after heavy rainfall broke a dam, causing extreme flooding downstream. The World Weather Attribution (WWA) reports that severe flooding in Libya and across the Mediterranean has been made more likely and more intense due to human induced climate change. WWA scientist Friederike Otto gets into the report. Back in 2020, NASA's OSIRIS-REx scooped up rock and dust samples from asteroid Bennu and on Sunday September 24th, 2023 the sample capsule will finally be released 100,000 kilometres above Earth, delivering it to the Great Salk Lake Desert. OSIRIS REx engineer Anjani Polit tells us about the nail-biting return. Also this week, Dr Peter Hotez warns us about the dangerous and rapid rise of anti-science sentiment in the United States. It's all in his new book "The Deadly Rise of Anti-Science". And the remnants of what is thought to be the oldest wooden structure have been found in Zambia. Professor of Archaeology Lawrence Barham talks about the simple structure made by our ancestors almost 500,000 years ago.

Catastrophic flooding in Libya last week left an estimated 10,000 people dead or missing. Today, we report from the ground and explain how warming oceans and a hotter planet contributed to the scale of the disaster.Read more:At the end of what has already been a summer of extremes, floods have spanned the globe with remarkable intensity in recent weeks. Countries from Spain to Brazil to Japan have been inundated. Libya was hit the hardest last week, with catastrophic flooding in coastal cities such as Derna and Sousa that left an estimated 10,000 people dead or missing. And while the causes for these catastrophes vary, they all have one thing in common: climate change. Today, foreign correspondent Louisa Loveluck reports from Libya, bringing us the extraordinary story of one family that narrowly survived the floods. Then, global weather reporter Scott Dance explains how the world's oceans, warmed by record-breaking heat, are making storms more intense and more dangerous.
In this episode of Lead With That, Ren and Allison discuss the leadership lessons we can learn from the communication, or lack thereof, surrounding recent natural disasters. In early August 2023, a series of deadly wildfires broke out on the Island of Maui in Hawaii leading to widespread damage and catastrophic loss. A few weeks later in early September, a Mediterranean storm made landfall over northeastern Libya, resulting in devastating flooding and the tragic loss thousands of lives. Unfortunately, a common thread connects these disasters: a lack of trust between the people affected and those leading the charge to protect them. While natural disasters are out of human control, the fallout from these incidents highlights, from a leadership perspective, broader issues related to communication during a crisis, how trust affects action, and how human-centered leadership makes all the difference. Join our hosts as they explore what these events can teach us about leadership.

The World Health Organisation is warning of a potential disease outbreak in the eastern Libyan city of Derna, after the disastrous floods that hit the area on September 11, leaving thousands dead. Meanwhile, the United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres has called on the leaders of the wealthiest nations to face the existential threat of climate change that created an 'awful hellscape' in Libya.

The port city of Derna, Libya, has been devastated by flooding, with thousands of people killed. Mediterranean Storm Daniel brought torrential rain to the region last week, but it was the collapse of two dams that caused some of the worst damage, with entire sections of Derna washed away. Now, as rescue turns to recovery, we speak with Anas El Gomati, director of Sadeq Institute, a Libyan think tank, about the political situation in Libya since Moammar Gadhafi was ousted, and how that may have contributed to the scale of the disaster.

Last Sunday Storm Daniel hit Libya bringing heavy rain and catastrophic flooding. Derna, a city in the east, suffered the most. A tsunami-like river of water swept through its streets when two dams burst. More than 10,000 people are missing and almost 4,000 people have been confirmed dead according to the United Nations. It's a situation any country would struggle to deal with but in Libya, there's an added complication because it's a country with two rival governments. So today Africa Daily's Alan Kasujja has been looking at how Libya will recover from the catastrophic floods.
Nations charter: preserve peace, prevent conflict, and alleviate human suffering. Turning overseas to Libya, where the death toll from those devastating floods is in the thousands. Three years ago, the world changed as Israel and Arab gulf ...
In this episode, we will hear from Mohamed Abu Breeg about the recent flooding in and around the Libyan coastal city of Derna. In the early hours of Sept. 11, residents of Derna woke up to loud explosions before floodwaters swept through the Mediterranean city. This was due to heavy rain fall and the breeching of two dams releasing 3 million cubic litres of water. This wall of water was up to two stories high and swept entire neighbourhoods out to sea. The deluge proved deadly for thousands in just seconds, uprooting apartment buildings and washing away roads and bridges. Libya's Red Crescent has said at least 11,300 people have been killed and an additional 10,000 are missing. After earlier reporting that same death toll, U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs is now citing about 11000 people killed and 9,000 missing. Joining us to give insights on the ground is Mohamed Abu Breeg. Mohamed is originally from Sirte in Libya, following the 2011 civil war he actively collaborated with Save the Children to contribute to post-war recovery efforts. In 2013, during the challenging period of Ansar Al Sharia's control in Sirte, Mohamed worked in security operations with a French company at the city's main power plant. He has seen the emergence of ISIS in Sirte and the subsequent arrival of Derna ISIS in 2015. In August 2015, as a result of ISIS, Mohamed become an internally displaced person (IDP) within Libya. He became an integral part of the LTI4 project, where our collective efforts were dedicated to post-conflict rehabilitation. He currently serves as a security consultant for the region.

You can't control a storm. Especially one as bad as Storm Daniel. But when two dams which hadn't been maintained since 2002 break; when authorities tell thousands of people to stay at home instead of evacuating them the night that Derna was swept into the sea; then you start to wonder, how much more could have been done to prevent the deaths of 11,000 people? Entire neighbourhoods gone. Families killed in their own homes. Bodies turning up after the waves had brought them back to land. Search and rescue teams telling whomever has remained alive to quiet down so they can try and listen for a faint sound coming from under the rubble. The scene was apocalyptic. On this episode of Beyond the Headlines, host Nada AlTaher talks about Storm Daniel, its impacts on the city of Derna and the gigantic task ahead for authorities and rescue workers to sort through the rubble and identify the dead.

Gunfire could be heard in the disputed territory of Nagorno-Karabakh today, after the Azerbaijani government launched a military offensive in the majority-Armenian territory. The Azerbaijani government called it an ‘anti-terrorist operation', after eleven Azerbaijani civilians were killed by landmines, but officials in Nagorno-Karabakh say the offensive is an attempt to drive Armenians out of the territory. Also in the programme, journalists in Libya have been asked to leave the devastated city of Derna and we hear from survivors of the Westgate shopping centre shooting in Kenya ten years after the tragedy.
