As a result, too many innocent people are being punished with an utterly avoidable death sentence.https://www.theafricareport.com/14731/trans-african-cooperation-is-only-way-to-halt-bloody-road-deaths/

Absent radical changes in local Sahelian governance and priorities, no humanitarian crisis in Africa’s recent history will compare to the hell to come. What is likely doesn’t have to be inevitable. The question for Western governments is whether they will be complicit in its acceleration.

Everything they told us about Somalia wasn't true.

But all the delegates keep discussing the wrong issues. We are facing the fact that there will be seven and, in the nearby future, even eleven billion potential car owners in the world.Fortunately birth rates are falling where energy footprint is biggest. We can accelerate this by providing the following.
A substantial part of this population surplus of four billion people will exacerbate the present problems of pollution and migration.

At first sight, those measures may leave a good impression, but everybody who takes the effort of thinking a little bit longer will understand that they should be considered as mere window dressing, less than an treatment of symptoms."
