A crater is seen in Sanica, near Sanski Most
A crater is seen in Sanica, near Sanski Most January 17, 2014. The area was once a cottage with a small lake, a fish pond and some trees. In recent months, however, it has become a crater wider than 50 meters and deeper than 30 meters. The crater is growing and is threatening more households, with some residents saying they have been forced to leave their homes because walls have began to crack. This the second of such a phenomenon in the area and experts say the craters could be caused from a sudden sinking of soil due to the existence of air pockets in the soil. Local media said authorities will carry out an extensive research on the area next month. REUTERS/Dado Ruvic (BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA - Tags: ENVIRONMENT SOCIETY TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY)

A wildcat gold miner (R) is approached by agents of Brazil's environmental police IBAMA, as he works near the city of Morais Almeida, Para state, June 25, 2013. The Amazon rainforest is being eaten away at by deforestation, much of which takes place as areas are burnt by large fires to clear land for agriculture. Initial data from Brazil's space agency suggests that destruction of the vast rainforest - the largest in the world - spiked by more than a third over the past year, wiping out an area more than twice the size of the city of Los Angeles. If the figures are borne out by follow-up data, they would confirm fears of scientists and environmental activists who warn that farming, mining and Amazon infrastructure projects, coupled with changes to Brazil's long-standing environmental policies, are reversing progress made against deforestation. Environmental issues will be under the spotlight as a United Nations Climate Change Conference opens in Warsaw, Poland on November 11. Picture taken on June 25, 2013.

Sand blocked a street near Atafona beach in Atafona
A boat is seen near Atafona beach in Atafona, about 225 miles (360 kilometers) north of Rio de Janeiro, November 11, 2010. Local fishermen bet on divine fury, scientists raise theories, but the fact is that the town of Atafona is disappearing. Located in a delta in the state of Rio de Janeiro, in Brazil, this small town of sand is being swallowed by the ocean as rising temperatures speed up the process of erosion. According to researchers, a total of 183 buildings have been destroyed and the Marine lighthouse moved twice in the past 30 years. Researchers from the Federal Fluminense University (UFF) created the Atafona Project in 2003 to study the causes of accelerated coastal erosion in the region.

A stalk of wild grass grows off soil from an old site of a rare earth metals mine on the outskirts of Longnan county, in Jiangxi Province October 27, 2010. The near monopoly China has in producing 97 percent of the world's supply of rare earths has been well-known among industrial users for years, but came under the international spotlight after reports Beijing halted shipments to Japan over a territorial dispute with Tokyo last month.

An aerial view of deforestation at Indonesia's Sumatra island, August 5, 2010. Indonesia and Australia launched a A$30 million project to fight deforestation in Sumatra as part of efforts to cut greenhouse gas emissions and boost a planned forest-carbon trading scheme on March this year. Indonesia, like Brazil, is on the front line of efforts to curb deforestation that is a major contributor to mankind's greenhouse gas emissions that scientists blame for heating up the planet.

An aerial view of a sawmill that processes logs from the Amazon rainforest that is being inspected by Para state policemen and environmental inspectors in Tailandia, 180 km (112 miles) south of Belem at the mouth of the Amazon River, February 13, 2008. In what the Para state government is calling one of the biggest operations against illegal logging ever in the Amazon, 120 policemen and inspectors are carrying out raids on sawmills and logging camps where they have already confiscated more than 10,000 cubic meters (353,143 cubic feet) of tree trunks and wood cut from native species, more than enough to load onto some 500 tractor trailers.
