From daily The Morning Star in Britain today:

Blaze nears edge of historic forest

MONTENEGRO: Firefighters are struggling to contain wildfires in the north-east of the country.

The fires have destroyed hundreds of acres of trees and the blaze has reached the outer rim of the Crna Poda forest in the Unesco-protected Tara river canyon, where some of the pine trees are 400 years old.

As the West Burns: Speaking Truth to Fire. Dr. Brian Moench, Truthout in the USA: “During the first week of July, referring to current raging wildfires, Princeton climate scientist Michael Oppenheimer said, ‘What we’re seeing is a window into what global warming really looks like. It looks like heat; it looks like fires; it looks like this kind of environmental disaster.’ Up close, it looked scary as hell. Most Utah residents will probably be inhaling wildfire smoke until the fall, and not just this summer, but most summers from now on”: here.
