NY-ALESUND, Norway
The Wider Image: Research in the Arctic
The old radio station for the mining town which is now a telegraph museum in Ny-Alesund Svalbard, Norway, October 13, 2015. A Norwegian chain of islands just 1,200 km (750 miles) from the North Pole is trying to promote new technologies, tourism and scientific research in a shift from high-polluting coal mining that has been a backbone of the remote economy for decades. Norway suspended most coal mining on the Svalbard archipelago last year because of the high costs, and is looking for alternative jobs for about 2,200 inhabitants on islands where polar bears roam. Part of the answer may be to boost science: in Ny-Alesund, the world's most northerly permanent non-military settlement, scientists from 11 nations including Norway, Germany, France, Britain, India and South Korea study issues such as climate change. The presence of Norway, a NATO member, also gives the alliance a strategic foothold in the far north, of increasing importance after neighbouring Russia annexed Ukraine's Crimea region in 2014.

Police clashed with a few dozen stone-throwing Palestinians in Shuafat, but the violence was on a much smaller scale than on Wednesday. REUTERS/Ammar Awad (JERUSALEM - Tags: POLITICS CIVIL UNREST)

An Irish Republican Army (IRA) sign is seen nailed to a telegraph pole in the Kilwilkie estate, near Lurgan in Northern Ireland February 27, 2014. Northern Ireland's most senior politician threatened to resign unless there was a full inquiry into guarantees of immunity given by British authorities to paramilitary suspects as part of peace agreements for the province. The issue came to light when an Irishman accused in a 1982 car bombing in London's Hyde Park that killed four soldiers on ceremonial duty walked free on a court finding that he had been given assurances he would not be prosecuted.

British ministers will meet representatives of the insurance industry on Tuesday, February 18, who will brief them on their progress in dealing with victims of winter floods across southern England. Some areas of England have been under water for more than a month after the wettest January on record, leaving homeowners displaced and crops ruined. Storms have even washed away key railway lines along the coast. Analysts at Deloitte have estimated the bill for repairs could reach 1 billion pounds ($1.67 billion) if heavy rains continue into the spring. Picture taken February 13, 2014.

A plane's vapour trail is seen in the sky above a house in suburban Sydney.
A plane's vapour trail is seen in the sky above a house in suburban Sydney May 25, 2005. Scientists from Israel, Germany, the U.S. and Australia have recently discovered that the amount of sunlight reaching the surface of the earth has been falling over recent decades due to the burning of fossil fuels that result in tiny airborne pieces of soot, ash and sulphur compounds reflecting back the heat of the sun. Scientists say that the phenomenon, named "global dimming", is actually cushioning the earth's surface from the full impact of global warming, and they fear that as the burning of coal and oil becomes more efficient, and dimming is reduced, the full effects on temperatures may be unleashed, with some estimates of a 10 degrees increase occurring by the end of the century.
