It may not always look like it… some parts are muddy and shallow... but the Parana River is South America's second-largest. It moves through Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina before reaching the Atlantic Ocean. It’s a vital waterway for commercial shipping and fishing, provides drinking water to millions of people, powers hydroelectric plants and supports rich biodiversity. But, the river is in trouble. Hit by cyclical droughts and dwindling rainfall - made worse by climate change - the river has retreated this year to its lowest level since its record low in 1944… with massive implications for all who depend on it. Like Argentine fisherman Gustavo Alcides Diaz, who says more than his livelihood is at stake: "Many fish have died because of the dry river. They got trapped and died. (flash) When everything dries, the water is lost. We use that water here, we use it, it gets processed so as to make it drinkable. But when the water is lost we have to go to the city and look for water over there." Transportation has also been compromised for locals who mostly travel by boat. Teacher, Javier Herenu: "The issue of the river drying is complicated for all of us. It is especially complicated for the children in getting to school because they do so by canoe or boat. And at the moment when the river has dried up it is impossible for them to do so. So for this reason, they are arriving on bicycles or walking and for some students it is so complicated so that they can't get here because it's too far away, the part of the river where they are coming from has dried up. So, they are not able to come." And – South America has taken a financial hit. Argentina has lost about $620 million in soybean meal and soy oil exports alone due to transport problems caused by lower river levels, according to experts. There’s more: lower water levels have contributed to a spike in wildfires, with people in river island communities losing homes and livestock. Despite some rain this month, the longer-term weather forecast is not encouraging, with only average or below average water levels predicted into 2022.

Attorney General Merrick Garland on Wednesday defended a memo aimed at combating threats against school officials nationwide while Republicans insisted he rescind the directive. The memo took center stage as Garland appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee – his second congressional appearance in a week – and said it was meant to respond to violence and threats of violence directed against local school board officials. The memo came out Oct. 4, less than a week after the National School Board Association wrote the Biden administration about the threats to school officials and asked for help.

The man hailed as a modern-day Darwin has a stark message for the future of planet earth - act now and go big on fighting climate change and protecting species - or else things will only get worse. Much worse.“If we fail to do it and a large portion of the biological diversity of the world is allowed to be exterminated, the generations, all the generations to come, that carelessness will be regarded as one of humanity's greatest failures."Alongside Sir David Attenborough, Edward O. Wilson is considered the world's leading authority on natural history and conservation.The 92-year old Harvard University naturalist has called for setting aside half the planet as a nature preserve..And in an interview in Boston with Reuters, he said that despite our differences, humankind is not too polarized to save the planet."We have... if we just take a little bit of care and measure what we will achieve by, in saving the rest of Earth's biology, and by setting aside more space than we have in the past, it will, it'll be one of our humanity's proudest achievements. “Today, species are going extinct at a rate not seen in 10 million years, with around 1 million currently on the brink. To limit the loss, the United Nations has urged countries to commit to conserving 30% of their land and water – almost double the area currently under some form of protection - by 2030.The so-called "30 by 30" target is in part inspired by Wilson's Half-Earth Project. First outlined in 2016, it calls for protecting half the planet's land and sea so there are enough diverse and well-connected ecosystems to reverse the course of species extinction.Now living in a retirement community… Wilson - who continues to write and is working on a book about ecosystems - is still optimistic humankind will do the right thing.If we don't, he says, the slope of human history will always be downward.Saving the planet from falling into the kind of downward spiral Wilson warned about will be the aim of COP26, the U.N. climate talks starting in Scotland on Sunday.
Ecuador's President Guillermo Lasso on Wednesday called for dialogue following a second day of demonstrations by indigenous and civil society groups against gasoline price rises, and said his government would keep security forces on highways to maintain order. Thousands of demonstrators marched on Tuesday in rejection of Lasso's increase of the price of gasoline extra, a cheaper gasoline that is Ecuador's most-used fuel, to a fixed $2.55 a gallon, and diesel to $1.90 a gallon. Lasso, a conservative ex-banker who took office in May, was under pressure from unions and others to freeze incremental gasoline price increases begun by his predecessor last year.
