𝗠𝗮𝗹𝗰𝗼𝗹𝗺 𝗫:- All of African natural minerals and wealth are needed by the Western industrialists in order for their industry to keep running at the clip that it’s been used to.

Can we prove it? YES! ImageImageImage
You know that France lost her French West African possessions, Belgium lost the Congo 🇨🇩, England lost Nigeria 🇳🇬 and Ghana 🇬🇭 and some of the other English-speaking areas; France also lost Algeria, or the Algerians took Algeria 🇩🇿
As soon as these European powers lost their African possessions, Belgium had an economic crisis, the same year she turned the Congo loose.

Update Thread:

#ExtremeWeather #Madagascar #Batsirai #CycloneBatsirai

Intense Cyclone Batsirai has strengthened rapidly and grown significantly larger. It has now passed Mauritius and its outer bands are now over Reunion.
Madagascar is 1000kms long top to bottom and #BatsiraiCyclone's outer bands are roughly the same size. With sustained winds of over 113 knots the storm is now the equivalent of a Category 4 Major Hurricane.
The JTWC's latest forecast track update #13 shows the storm maintaining very intense cyclone intensity up to landfall (of the eyewall - maximum strength winds) in the morning on Saturday. Rain and high winds will arrive on Friday.

The world is on fire. I've been warning about the perfect storm brewing due to Covid, conflict, climate shocks & now, rising supply chain costs. IT IS HERE. 45M lives are at stake—and increasing daily. If you don’t feed people, you feed conflict, destabilization & mass migration.
This hunger crisis is urgent, unprecedented, AND avoidable. @elonmusk, you asked for a clear plan & open books. Here it is! We're ready to talk with you - and anyone else - who is serious about saving lives. The ask is $6.6B to avert famine in 2022: wfp.org/appeal-billion…
Just five countries alone account for 20M people: bit.ly/WFP-country-pl…

They are the frontlines of hunger. What I’ve seen in each of these countries is worse than you can possibly imagine. #Afghanistan #Madagascar #SouthSudan #Sudan #Yemen

Ci sono argomenti che non so come trattare.

Che sono proprio difficili da elaborare emotivamente. Il blackhumor in questi casi non ti viene in aiuto.

Vabbè, la schianto facile: ci sono, ad oggi, paesi che stanno morendo di fame a causa della grave siccità, come il #Madagascar
Qui non piove da 4 anni (circa) e gli abitanti sono costretti a mangiare quei pochi insetti che trovano e foglie di cactus.

Viene da sé che è una dieta pessima per la sopravvivenza.
Bisogna usare con cautela anche "Colpa del surriscaldamento globale" perché non tutti ancora son disposti a capire il concatenamento di eventi che questo crea.

Ma soprattutto, molti non vogliono pensare al cambiamento climatico e alla morte allo stesso tempo.

Hij doet het weer Thierry Baudet.
Hij wil een escape strategie voor buitenlanders.
Madagascar plan of zoiets.
De nazi’s ontwikkelden voor de #holocaust een plan om van de Joden af te komen.
Het #Madagascar plan.
De oorlogsmisdadiger Himmler schreef er in 1940 over. ImageImageImage
De nazi Franz Rademacher kreeg van de Duitse minister van buitenlandse zaken Joachim von Ribbentrop opdracht een plan op te stellen voor de deportatie van de Europese Joden naar Madagaskar. Juli 1940 publiceerde hij zijn plan.
Zoiets als Thierry Baudet nu voor buitenlanders wil ImageImageImage
Uiteindelijk kwam niets van het Madagaskar plan terecht.
Om toch van de joden af te komen, werd op een andere methodiek overgegaan: massavernietiging.
De holocaust.
Ontwikkelt Baudet zich met zijn Madagaskar suggestie tot een volbloed nazi? ImageImageImageImage

#Madagascar #Antananarivo #Coronavirus

According to President Andry Rajoelina, Madagascar is in no hurry to purchase corona vaccine for its population, but instead continues to rely on an alleged herbal cure for the virus.
Rajoelina said in a televised address on Saturday that he has not yet been vaccinated and has no plans to be vaccinated. He is not completely against vaccinations, but the country is currently "in an observation phase of the vaccine",
which currently still has too many side effects. Last year, the Malagasy government presented a herbal drink based on the local Artemis plant. The drink is said to strengthen immunity, protect against numerous viruses and fevers - especially lung diseases.

1/9 🚨New @Diversity_Turn paper on #tree🌳diversity and stand structure in the #vanilla landscape of northeastern #Madagascar🇲🇬 is finally out in @ApplVegSci
Check this thread for the main takeaways!
#OA paper: onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/av…
2/9 Madagascar harbors an exceptionally high diversity of endemic species, especially trees. Many of these species are restricted to the humid Northeast where smallholder vanilla agroforests shape the landscape and support local livelihoods
3/9 Tropical agroforestry has the potential to reconcile biodiversity conservation with production goals. However, agroforests differ in land-use history and this is often neglected in research and policy.

A traditional house renovated and decorated with a contemporary touch.

Between tradition and modernity. ImageImageImageImage
Designed by the French painter Jacques Majorelle the garden was created over the course of forty years, and consists of a labyrinth of crisscrossing alleyways on different levels and boldly-coloured buildings that blend both Art Deco and Moorish influences.

An hidden beauty ImageImageImageImage

Previously Unknown #Whale Population Discovered in #Indian Ocean Thanks to Their Distinct Song

weather.com/en-IN/india/en…

(📸:Robert Baldwin/Environment Society of Oman)
In a rather surprising, yet exciting discovery, researchers have spotted a new population of blue #whales swimming in the western #IndianOcean. The discovery is unique as the population was spotted from the unusual song sung by these exotic sea creatures.
Blue whales or #Balaenoptera musculus are the largest living animals on the planet and they use songs to communicate and socialise. They are often identified by their unique low-frequency sounds, which can be louder than a jet engine, with the pitch reaching up to 188 decibels.

🦇 Happy #BatWeek! The forest in Sainte Luce is home to several species of bat, including the Madagascan Flying Fox (𝘗𝘵𝘦𝘳𝘰𝘱𝘶𝘴 𝘳𝘶𝘧𝘶𝘴), the biggest bat species in #Madagascar, currently listed as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List.
Although SEED has been working to protect bats for some years via Project Rufus, there has recently been increasing disturbance from illegal logging in the area. Last week Sylvie and Laza went to find out more and discuss with the local mayor how best to increase bat protection.
The mayor is very keen to protect the bats, and is working with SEED to ratify the local law and implement effective protection measures. We are also currently working on funding for the next phase of Project Rufus to help secure the future of the flying foxes of Sainte Luce!

The makers of the #Madagascar series, consulted the paintings of artist #HenriRousseau for inspiration for the movie's sprawling jungles and leavy trees. Here is a #funwithfundas thread on this strange French painter who died #OnThisDay in 1910. (1/n)
Henri Julien Félix Rousseau was born in 1844 in Laval, a market town in northwest France. His work is said to belong to the Naïve or Primitive style. The 1870s and 80s saw an #Impressionist wave in Europe. Rousseau's #art moves in a new brisk direction from impressionist roots.
Rousseau took painting pretty later on in his life, in his forties. At 49, he retired from his job as a customs clerk on the outskirts of the city to paint full-time. He was known by the nickname Le Douanier or customs officer for the same reason.
