Homes devastated by fire and the effects of Hurricane Sandy are seen the Breezy Point section of the Queens borough of New York October 30, 2012. Millions of people across the eastern United States awoke on Tuesday to scenes of destruction wrought by monster storm Sandy, which knocked out power to huge swathes of the nation's most densely populated region, swamped New York's subway system and submerged streets in Manhattan's financial district.

A Chinese woman wears a scarf to fend off dust as she rides a bicycle in Beijing February 26, 2004. Though each country regulates its own air quality, pollution knows no boundaries, and dirty air from Asia can easily cross the Pacific to pollute the western United States, experts say.

Dark clouds pass over downtown Miami, Florida
Dark clouds pass over downtown Miami, Florida August 15, 2010. An area of low pressure over southwest Georgia could move southward into Gulf of Mexico waters by early Monday and has a medium chance of becoming a tropical cyclone in the next 48 hours, the National Hurricane Center said on Sunday. The low pressure area was the remnant of Tropical Depression Five which dissipated on Wednesday in the Gulf. The U.S. Gulf of Mexico is home to about 30 percent of U.S. oil production, 11 percent of natural gas production, and more than 43 percent of U.S. refinery capacity.

The project "Restoring peatlands and applying concepts for sustainable management in Belarus ? climate change mitigation with economic and biodiversity benefits" has been running in the country since September 2008. The project will rewet over 14,000 hectares of degraded peatland, and quantify greenhouse gas emission reductions, participants said.

A windmill stands in a drought-effected paddock near the western New South Wales town of Burren Junction, located over 600 kilometres north-west of Sydney March 7, 2007. Australia's longest river has lost half its natural water flow due to evaporation and over extraction of water for dams and irrigation, and a further 20 percent loss is predicted due to climate change by 2030. Dams and other irrigation projects along the Darling River, the lifeblood for many of Australia's farmers, has dramatacially reduced water flows as the country continues to be gripped by one of it's worst droughts in a century.

A forest burns in eastern Sierra Leone
A forest burns in eastern Sierra Leone April 23, 2012. Logging is illegal in Sierra Leone, but remains the leading cause of environmental degradation, according to the European Union. Population pressure, common slash and burn methods and illegal logging mean the country's bountiful forests could disappear by 2018, according to the Forestry Ministry. Sierra Leone's 11-year conflict from 1991-2002 left over 50,000 dead and became a byword for gratuitous violence, especially the amputation of limbs. A decade later, the West African nation is peaceful, but among the world's poorest. It is due to hold elections in November. Picture taken April 23, 2012.

- PHOTO TAKEN 09AUG05 - An aerial view shows a single tree seen on land that was previously jungle in Mato Grosso state, one of the Brazilian states suffering from deforestation, August 9, 2005. The Brazilian government announced the latest data on deforestation of the Amazon Basin, with a total of 26,130 square km (10,089 square miles) of rainforest destroyed, equivalent to more than nine football fields every minute, during the 12-month period ending in August, 2004. The Amazon is home to up to 30 percent of the planet's animal and plant species.
