Bad weather for 2050 as TV forecasters imagine climate change

OSLO (Reuters) - Imaginary television weather forecasts predicted floods, storms and searing heat from Arizona to Zambia within four decades, as part of a United Nations campaign on Monday to draw attention to a U.N. summit this month on fighting global warming. "Miami South Beach is under water," one forecaster says in a first edition of "weather reports from the future", a series set in 2050 and produced by companies including Japan's NHK, the U.S. #United States #India #China #Japan #Arabic #Middle East #Italy #Argentina #Mexico #opinion

Detained Americans in North Korea seek U.S. help, in interviews with CNN

SEOUL/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Three American citizens detained in North Korea appealed on Monday to the U.S government for help returning home, speaking in rare interviews that were set up by the North Korean government and may signal an attempt by Pyongyang to reopen a long-stalled dialogue. The three men, one serving a 15-year sentence and two awaiting trial in the isolated country, spoke to a visiting CNN reporting crew in tightly controlled circumstances. #facebook #United States #China #Technology #Interview #markets #North Korea #Argentina #United Kingdom #opinion

Syrian army, rebels fight on Golan where peacekeepers held

EIN ZIVAN Golan Heights/MANILA (Reuters) - Heavy fighting erupted on Monday between the Syrian army and Islamist rebels on the Golan Heights, where 44 peacekeepers from Fiji are being held by militants and scores of their fellow blue helmets from the Philippines escaped after resisting capture. Syria's three-year civil war reached the frontier with Israeli-controlled territory last week when Islamist fighters overran a crossing point in the line that has separated Israelis from Syrians in the Golan Heights since a 1973 war. #facebook #United States #India #China #Japan #Syria #France #Arabic #United Kingdom #weapons

In the Devyani Khobragade saga, Indo-US ties biggest victim

The Americans grossly misjudged and miscalculated the response of India, ignoring the fact that Washington chose to up its ante at a time when general elections are less than four months away and no government in New Delhi could have politically afforded to take the American affront lying low. #United States #Barack Obama #diplomacy #ConnectTheDots #Preet Bharara #Nisha Desai Biswal #United Nation #Devyani Khobragade #Sangeeta Richards #India-US diplomacy #Diplomat arrest row
