DISASTER WARNING: Volcano ERUPTS in Russia / WYNKnews

A Russian volcano began erupting late on Tuesday, the Interfax news agency reported.


Plosky Tolbachik, in Russia's Far Eastern Kamchatka Peninsula, erupted Tuesday evening for the first time since 1976, spewing a column of ash seven kilometers into the atmosphere.

The volcanic ash cloud drifted toward northwest while the lava flowing down the volcano's southern slope.

The ash fell in the villages of Maiskoye and Krasny Yar, forming a ash layer of about four centimeters.

An orange alert has been issued due to the eruption, which though did not pose hazard to the populated area.

The 3,085-meter-high volcano is situated in the southwestern sector of the Klyuchevsky group of volcanoes in Kamchatka's east, 343 kilometers away from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky.

A significant increase in seismic activity and more than 130 volcanic earthquakes have been registered at Plosky Tolbachik volcano.

Its latest eruption was recorded in 1975-1976.

In Coral Triangle, at least 15% of the countries' GDP depend on natural resources. Marine protected areas are efficient tools to sustainably manage ecosystems that provide economic, social and ecological benefits. However MPAs share a common problem: a critical lack of sustainable financing for their recurrent expenses and investment. WWF works with governments and partners to develop mechanisms and recommend solutions in this video.

We use our citizens actively, we use our local companies and we use the techno-logical development that exists in the field. Torben Juul, Technical Director Thisted Municipality

Environmental Atlas of Europe, p.8 / EEA

During the Soviet era, Dedoplistskaro in south east Georgia was the countrys main production area for wheat and sunflower seeds. That came to an end in 1991 when Georgia became independent and Russia cut off its energy supply. To survive the cold winters, the people resorted to cutting down trees for firewood, stripping the countryside of the windbreaks that protected the crops and soil from the harsh desert winds and provided a natural habitat for many species of animals and plants.

Environmental Atlas of Europe, p.7 / EEA

Almost a third of the Netherlands lies below sea level, and over the centuries the country has developed a highly efficient flood-defence system. The tragic floods of 1953, caused by a storm surge and exceptionally spring tides, led to a range of modern-day engineering so-lutions as well as a heightened awareness in Dutch society of the dangers of sea level rise. But when, in the mid 1990s, unusually heavy rain in Belgium and Germany caused the Rhine and the Meuse to breach their banks and hundreds of thousands of people had to be evacuated, it was clear that long-term action would have to be taken to protect against flooding from river water as well. The government has now launched a wide ranging pro-gramme of adaptation schemes to protect the coasts from sea-level and to create Room for the River, by establishing unobstructed spaces into which the major rivers can safely over-flow.

Silent except for the humming of bees and the distant hammering of woodpeckers, Białowieża Forest is a fairy-tale landscape of tall trees, peat bogs and meadows home to innumerable species of birds, invertebrates, lichens, fungi and other flora and fauna includ-ing grey wolves, lynx, elk and a large herd of rare European bison.

Ten years ago, a group of people in Ireland came together to try to reduce their overall carbon footprint by building an ecological community. They looked at how they could incor-porate sustainability into every aspect of their lives how they could build and power their houses, how they could earn their living, how they could travel and grow their food.

Producing sustainably works and it should be replicable all over the world. Antonio Lo Franco, Fattoria La Vialla. The family run Fattoria La Vialla in Tuscany is a shining example of truly sustainable farming. Every element of the production chain, from preparing the soil through to packaging the produce, has been planned with the environment in mind.

Environmental atlas of Europe, p.3 / EEA

The Swedish forestry model is built on regenerating forests, so when the old forest is taken away a new forest is established. It is when the forest is young and middle aged that it grows most rapidly, hence absorbing more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. By monitoring and using modern technology, forest experts indentify trees that should be harvested and trees that should be left behind.

An Environmental Atlas story about Europe's first Cross-border Biosphere, which combines the two large strips of forests, the Pfälzerwald and Les Vosges du Nord, into a beautiful and vibrant bioreserve. In certain zones of the bioreserve small scale farmers are making a business out of producing high quality organic products.
