An aerial view shows thermokarst lakes outside the town of Chersky in northeast Siberia August 28, 2007. For millennia, layers of animal waste and other organic matter left behind by the creatures that used to roam the Arctic tundra have been sealed inside the frozen permafrost. Now climate change is thawing the permafrost and lifting this prehistoric ooze from suspended animation. Zimov, a scientist who for almost 30 years has studied climate change in Russia's Arctic, believes that as this organic matter becomes exposed to the air it will accelerate global warming faster than even some of the most pessimistic forecasts.

A view from the top of Mirror Peak looking down at the Sierra Nevada in the Andean state of Merida July 30, 2008. Global warming is quickly melting glaciers in South America's Andes mountains, threatening to cut available drinking water for millions of residents and cripple hydro-electricity generation projects. The melting of the Andean glaciers from Chile to Venezuela threatens the largest supply of fresh water outside the North and South poles, with the snow-cap of Venezuela's 4979 meter Bolivar Peak possibly disappearing in five years.

Once the world's fourth largest lake, the Aral has shrunk so much that it has now split into two separate bodies of water. The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has been running an Aral Sea Programme since 1995, focusing mainly on water resources management, small business development, humanitarian assistance and a social and health programme as the ecological disaster of the dying sea has brought about a host of associated health problems.

A heat wave in Italy has put the health of one million people at risk and the government has warned the situation could even be worse than the summer of 2003 when 20,000 people died due to soaring temperatures. Italy is bathed in hot Saharan air with temperatures forecast on Tuesday to reach 36 degrees Celsius (97 Fahrenheit), with the hottest regions in the north. In cities, it can feel much hotter as asphalt roads and pavements pump the heat back up from below. REUTERS/Giampiero Sposito PP05060263 Pictures of the Month June 2005 PP05070223 GS/CN

Australia is already feeling the brunt of climate change with a five year drought devastating rural life and eating into economic growth, severe early season wildfires and record unseasonable temperatures. With the worst drought to hit Australia in 100 years now entering its sixth year, every four days a farmer commits suicide under the stress of failing crops, dying livestock and debt.
