August breaks all temperature records, beyond the bad joke that August is hot; temperatures of 50 degrees Celsius in Spain, in Extremadura, do not belong to a normal summer. You will be able to see it in detail and also the attempts at the Amazon summit promoted by the president of Brazil Lula da Silva to preserve the lungs of the planet. But we have enough like the daily complaints of Donald Trump, the unexpected intervention of the government of Nicolás Maduro in the Red Cross in Venezuela, or the coup of a drug czar in Colombia.
Japan commemorates the 78th anniversary of the plutonium bomb dropped by the United States as World War II was about to end. A deliberate blow to the civilian population simply to experimentally verify the effects of the device developed in the Manhattan Project. Dropping the two atomic bombs was part of the plan.
Various organizations defending the environment expressed their satisfaction with the issues addressed in the final declaration of the Amazon Summit in Brazil. However, as often happens in large international meetings, they miss concrete actions that lead to solutions for the largest plant lung on the planet. Although it is true that the summit tiptoed over the aggressiveness of the oil industry in several of the Amazon countries, as they were able to see yesterday in Ecuador, or also about a forceful zero deforestation before 2030 in which, however, they have committed Brazil and Colombia will at least be able to join other states in a more superficial way to a new Amazon Alliance to Fight Deforestation, and cooperation against environmental crimes will be encouraged.
Only the Red Cross was missing as an organization questioned in Venezuela. An unexpected decision by the prosecutor’s office has alarmed the rest of the NGOs that continue to operate in Venezuela.
In our No Comment today we go to Hollywood, to a walk of fame that today has been a day of mourning for the death of William Friedkin, not only the director of The Exorcist or The French Connection but also the anguishing Sorcerer that well deserves a viewing.
