"It is illegal to 'take' and kill a crocodile without authority and police will work closely with (the environment department) to locate the person responsible," Queensland police said.

    When rainfall is measured in feet, not inches, we are witnessing climate change bearing down on us. Catastrophic destruction tied to the Atlantic hurricane season, monsoon rains in Mumbai, and downpours in Niger are just a few of the many extreme weather events that are being intensified by global warming. While the rise of a few degrees in temperature may not be enough for a person to spike a fever, that change is enough to radically impact the earth’s climate.

    This year has been a historic one for hurricanes, with major storm after major storm churning through the Atlantic. Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Jose, and Maria all reached "major hurricane" (Category 3 or above) status as they spun through those warm waters.  And as these storms have lashed not only the U.S. mainland but many of the smaller islands that populate the Caribbean and the Atlantic, we've been reminded of what a devastating and destructive force nature can be.  SEE ALSO: Reports: Hurricane Maria leaves Puerto Rico entirely without power Puerto Rico is no different. The small island of 3.4 million people was still cleaning up from being side-swiped by Irma when Maria slammed into it on Tuesday, engulfing nearly the entire island with hurricane-force winds. Now the clean up begins anew and we're reminded once more of the raw power of these storms, of he widespread damage they can cause.  An image acquired by the GOES-13 satellite at 1:15 pm local time  of Hurricanes Maria in the Caribbean (bottom) and Jose (L, top) in the North Atlantic Ocean.Image: NASA Earth Observatory HANDOUT/EPA-EFE/REX/Shutterstock Hurricane Maria Landfalls in Puerto Rico San Juan September 20, 2017.Image: Dennis M.

    By Costas Pitas LONDON (Reuters) - Greenpeace activists boarded a ship arriving in Britain on Thursday to stop the delivery of more than 1,000 Volkswagen cars from Germany while others sought to immobilise vehicles at a port in anti-diesel protests. VW admitted cheating diesel emissions tests in 2015, triggering political and consumer pressure that has caused a slump in sales of diesel cars in major markets, with governments announcing plans to ban vehicles powered by conventional combustion engines. Greenpeace said its volunteers had boarded the ship in the Thames Estuary in an attempt to stop it unloading at the port of Sheerness in the southeast of England.

    By Tom Perry BEIRUT (Reuters) - Kurdish-led regions of northern Syria will hold elections on Friday, a historic expression of free will and a message to President Bashar al-Assad as he seeks to reassert control over the whole country, a senior Syrian Kurdish politician said. As Kurds in neighboring Iraq prepare to vote on secession from Baghdad, Hadiya Yousef told Reuters that Assad's aim to take back all of Syria could lead to its partition, though Syria's Kurds insist that independence is not their aim. The three-phase vote set to begin on Friday is part of a plan mapped out by Syrian Kurdish groups and their allies to set up a federal system of government that will shore up the autonomy they have enjoyed in the north since 2011, when Syria's civil war broke out.

    At least 22 civilians have been killed in 48 hours of heavy air strikes by Syria's regime and its ally Russia in northwestern Syria, a monitor said Thursday. The strikes hit areas in the provinces of Idlib and Hama, where an internationally agreed truce zone is meant to be in place, and come in response to an offensive launched Tuesday by jihadists. Idlib, along with parts of neighbouring Hama and Latakia provinces, forms one of four so-called de-escalation zones agreed last May by regime allies Russia and Iran and rebel backer Turkey.

    Virgin boss Richard Branson has hit out at Donald Trump after Hurricane Irma partially destroyed his home on the British Virgin Islands. Donald Trump, who has previously denied climate change, has planned to withdraw from the Paris climate change agreement, which aims to reduce the impact of global warming on Earth. Mr Branson criticised the President's stance in an interview on CNN, where he was asked about the impact of climate change on hurricanes. Richard Branson on Necker Island Credit: Virgin.com/Virgin.com "Look, you can never be 100 per cent sure about links" he replied, "but the scientists have said the storms are going to get more and more and more intense and more and more often." He continued: "We've had four storms within a month, all far greater than have ever, ever, ever happened in history. "Sadly, I think this is the start of things to come." Hitting out at Donald Trump, he continued:"Look, climate change is real. Ninety-nine per cent of scientists know it's real. "The whole world knows it's real except for maybe one person in the White House." Richard Branson launches aid relief campaign for the British Virgin Islands 02:33 The British billionaire and adventurer took refuge in the wine cellar of his home on his private island while it suffered a direct hit from the Category 5 Hurricane Irma. "As you can see from the photos, much of the buildings and vegetation on Necker has been destroyed or badly damaged," Sir Richard wrote from Puerto Rico, where he was mobilising aid efforts  for the British Virgin Islands and wider Caribbean. "We felt the full force of the strongest hurricane ever in the Atlantic Ocean. But we are very fortunate to have a strong cellar built into Necker’s Great House and were very lucky all of our teams who stayed on Island during the storm are safe and well." He has now called for a "Marshall Plan" to rebuild the British Virgin Islands in the wake of the devastation of Hurricane Irma and fears of further damage by Hurricane Maria.
