Quotes

"In Australia, climate change could cause production of wheat, beef, dairy and sugar to decline by an estimated 9% to 10% by 2030 and 13% to 19% by 2050, which will also lead to a decline in export of these items" she said
"It's a real community event, the whole school is involved" he said
...found myself bursting into tears one evening when out with friends," says Jessica*, who has covered humanitarian crises in Indonesia and Pakistan. "I thought I was just relieved to be in a social situation after a long time of living a closed-in type of life. I realised it was something more serious though, because I had been drinking more wine than usual following my return. It helped to block out some scarring memories."
She added: "This network of secrecy and low tax rates facilitates the illicit flows of large amounts of capital from the poorest countries. It is estimated that between 2008 and 2010, sub-Saharan Africa lost on average USD63.4bn dollars this way each year, or more than twice what it received in aid."
