The Wider Image: The man who saves forgotten cats in Fukushima's nuclear zone
Hisae Unuma looks into her home that she lived in before being evacuated, which is 2.5 km away from the crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant, as she visits the house on the anniversary of her husband's passing in a restricted zone in Futaba, Fukushima Prefecture, Japan, February 23, 2021. Unuma fled as the cooling system at Tokyo Electric Power Co's nuclear plant failed and its reactors began to melt down. Her home withstood the earthquake a decade ago but is now close to collapsing after years of being battered by wind, rain and snow. "I'm surprised it's still standing," she said.

A bamboo tree grows inside Hisae Unuma's collapsing home that she lived in before being evacuated, which is 2.5 km away from the crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant, in a restricted zone in Futaba, Fukushima prefecture, Japan, February 23, 2021. Unuma fled as the cooling system at Tokyo Electric Power Co's nuclear plant failed and its reactors began to melt down. Her home withstood the earthquake a decade ago but is now close to collapsing after years of being battered by wind, rain and snow. "I'm surprised it's still standing," she said.

The Wider Image: The man who saves forgotten cats in Fukushima's nuclear zone
Hisae Unuma wears a protective suit as she walks past an incinerator used to burn debris collected in the Fukushima clean up, which was built in a rural village near Unuma's collapsing home where she lived before being evacuated, in a restricted zone in Futaba, Fukushima Prefecture, Japan, February 23, 2021. Unuma, who fled as the cooling system at Tokyo Electric Power Co's nuclear plant 2.5 km away failed and its reactors began to melt down, won't return even if the government scrapes the radioactive soil off her fields. Radiation levels around her house are around 20 times the background level in Tokyo, according to a dosimeter reading carried out by Reuters. Only the removal of Fukushima's radioactive cores will make her feel safe, a task that will take decades to complete. "Never mind the threat from earthquakes, those reactors could blow if someone dropped a tool in the wrong place," she said. REUTERS/Kim Kyung-Hoon SEARCH "FUKUSHIMA KYUNG-HOON" FOR THIS STORY.

FILE PHOTO: An aerial view shows workers collecting plastic trash that litters the polluted Potpecko Lake near a dam's hydroelectric plant near the town of Priboj, Serbia, January 29, 2021. Two barges sailed up and down a vast stretch of floating trash on the Potpecko artificial lake in Serbia, collecting tons of garbage that almost clogged the dam that crosses it. The river Lim which fills the lake is swollen by melting snows, and according to activists, it has carried in more than 20,000 cubic meters of plastics from unregulated dumps along its banks in Serbia, Montenegro and Bosnia. As the garbage also threatened the functioning of a hydroelectric plant, authorities in Belgrade ordered an immediate clean-up. The operators collect up to 100 cubic meters of plastic and other trash daily and take it to a landfill about 80 km (50 miles) away. Picture taken with a drone.

A man carrying a gun exits a vehicle as Daniel Gregory is tended to by medics after being shot in the arm by a driver who tried to drive through a protest against racial inequality, in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody, in Seattle, Washington, U.S. June 7, 2020. Reuters photogrpaher Lindsey Wasson: "I had just stepped to the main window of the local newspaper office, and I was looking over the crowd during a Sunday evening protest against police brutality and racism – one of several that had rocked Seattle and other places across the United States since the death of George Floyd – when I heard a scream and commotion. I rushed to the window to photograph what was happening. Stunned protesters surrounded a car that had driven into their ranks. A man brandishing a gun exited the driver's side of the vehicle and the protesters backed away from him as he ran off and melted into the crowd. Medics rushed forward to help a wounded man lying on the ground nearby. Everything happened very quickly, maybe only a minute or so. It has been very odd to see protests like this in my hometown. What feels different this time is the scale and how sustained it's been. I've never seen it go on for this long, with this extended energy and purpose."

The Wider Image: The thaw of the Third Pole: China's glaciers in retreat
Glaciers in China's bleak, rugged Qilian mountains are disappearing at a shocking rate as global warming brings unpredictable change and raises the prospect of crippling, long-term water shortages, scientists say. The largest glacier in the 800-km (500-mile) mountain chain on the arid northeastern edge of the Tibetan plateau has retreated about 450 metres since the 1950s, when researchers set up China's first monitoring station to study it. The 20-square kilometre glacier, known as Laohugou No. 12, is criss-crossed by rivulets of water down its craggy, grit-blown surface. It has shrunk by about 7% since measurements began, with melting accelerating at a record pace in recent years, scientists say. Equally alarming is the loss of thickness, with about 13 metres (42 feet) of ice disappearing as temperatures rise, said Qin Xiang, the director at the monitoring station.

The Wider Image: The thaw of the Third Pole: China's glaciers in retreat
Meltwater drips from an icicle on the Laohugou No. 12 glacier in the Qilian mountains, Subei Mongol Autonomous County in Gansu province, China, September 26, 2020. The 20-square kilometre glacier is criss-crossed by rivulets of water down its craggy, grit-blown surface. It has shrunk by about 7% since measurements began, with melting accelerating at a record pace in recent years, scientists say. Equally alarming is the loss of thickness, with about 13 metres (42 feet) of ice disappearing as temperatures rise, said Qin Xiang, the director at the monitoring station.

The Wider Image: The thaw of the Third Pole: China's glaciers in retreat
Glaciers in China's bleak, rugged Qilian mountains are disappearing at a shocking rate as global warming brings unpredictable change and raises the prospect of crippling, long-term water shortages, scientists say. The largest glacier in the 800-km (500-mile) mountain chain on the arid northeastern edge of the Tibetan plateau has retreated about 450 metres since the 1950s, when researchers set up China's first monitoring station to study it. The 20-square kilometre glacier, known as Laohugou No. 12, is criss-crossed by rivulets of water down its craggy, grit-blown surface. It has shrunk by about 7% since measurements began, with melting accelerating at a record pace in recent years, scientists say. Equally alarming is the loss of thickness, with about 13 metres (42 feet) of ice disappearing as temperatures rise, said Qin Xiang, the director at the monitoring station.
