Venice mayor Luigi Brugnaro declared that 'this is the result of climate change' after the city was ravaged by near-record floods on Tuesday. In Australia, bushfires have killed at least four people and meteorologists say climate change is increasing the 'frequency and severity' of the danger. And in China, authorities say the rodent population has increased in the wake of droughts, causing a rare outbreak of pneumonic plague.

Meanwhile, Miami’s biggest star, Rick Ross, is scheduled to put out his latest … [Read more...] about Miami heat: has the southern rap giant lost its hip-hop spark?
