Titley likens the Syrian drought to "throwing a match into gasoline vapors." In California, it's more like "throwing match into diesel. It goes out."

Until recently, climate and security experts have focused their research mostly on the humanitarian and disaster-relief implications of increasing extreme weather. "The Syrian conflict is one of the first instances of the dark side, the evil face of climate and security, not the last," Titley said.

"I think, unfortunately, we will see more and more of these, and now the question is: Which one of these becomes the Titanic moment that grabs the world's attention?" read more

Mrs. Clinton did not have a government email address during her four-year tenure at the State Department. Her aides took no actions to have her personal emails preserved on department servers at the time, as required by the Federal Records Act.

It was only two months ago, in response to a new State Department effort to comply with federal record-keeping practices, that Mrs. Clinton's advisers reviewed tens of thousands of pages of her personal emails and decided which ones to turn over to the State Department. All told, 55,000 pages of emails were given to the department. Mrs. Clinton stepped down from the secretary's post in early 2013.

A leading Russian opposition politician, former deputy Prime Minister Boris Nemtsov, has been shot dead in Moscow, Russian officials say. An unidentified attacker shot Nemtsov four times in central Moscow near the Kremlin, according to Russian-language news website Meduza. He died hours after appealing for support for a march on Sunday in Moscow against the war in Ukraine. Russian President Vladimir Putin has condemned the murder, the Kremlin says.

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Boris Nemtsov, a Russian opposition politician and former deputy prime minister who was an outspoken critic of President Vladimir Putin, was shot dead meters from the Kremlin in central Moscow late on Friday.

Nemtsov, 55, was shot four times in the back, the Interior Ministry said. A police spokeswoman on the scene said he had been walking on a bridge over the Moskva River with a Ukrainian woman.

Leonard Nimoy, the sonorous, gaunt-faced actor who won a worshipful global following as Mr. Spock, the resolutely logical human-alien first officer of the Starship Enterprise in the television and movie juggernaut Star Trek, died on Friday morning at his home in the Bel Air section of Los Angeles. He was 83. As Mr. Spock Nimoy brought to life one of the most indelible characters of the last half century: a cerebral, unflappable, pointy-eared Vulcan with a signature salute and blessing: "Live long and prosper." read more

Well then..... nothing to worry about, why have the Federal Records Act at all.

The middle east is a quagmire of people so violently opposed to one another that they need blood thirst dictators to rule them. They are neither ready or willing to accept democracy and compromise.

What are you talking about? You dehumanize a whole culture, a region, a religion and civilization because you and Obama don't have the stomach to keep troops in Iraq?

We won WWII, we benefited from the economic boom of that victory, part of the victory is the burden to civilize the rest of the world. To unchain them from the despots and empire building which preceded it.

It was a horrendous mistake to create a power vacuum by removing Saddam and that legacy will saddle this country for decades to come with misery and pain.

History will look back on this time of America and find that the world fell apart, because of cowardly actions by presidents ranging from Carter-Obama and possibly beyond.

We owed the world peace and democracy after WWII, peace through strength. IMO,a democratic world, one with the focus on capitalism and greed is a peaceful world.

You obviously believe that despots and dictators are the way to go, I am going to guess you thought the Shah of Iran was a good guy? In fact you could say the Shah's fall is what caused all of this. Who was president then? Carter.....

Electing a coked out frat boy wanna be war preznit is causing the world enormous amounts of grief and suffering and his legacy will forever be handcuffed to the actions of ISIS.

Certainly better than our current coward in chief. But understand, its to late to do anything about it, we fell over the cliff with leaving Iraq.

It is Obama which asks for "war without end." because he lacked the courage to fight when he had too.
