Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

Tropical Depression CHEDZA Crossing Madagascar

CHEDZA made landfall in Madagascar as a tropical storm, but weakened into a tropical depression as it crossed the island.

“While Chedza was not as powerful as initially feared, it is still too early to know its impact, especially considering the weeks of heavy rains that have already fallen over Madagascar and the forecast for more heavy rains over the coming days. Preliminary information indicates that 24,968 people have been affected and 4,500 people displaced, including 22,512 people affected and 3,150 displaced in the capital Antananarivo, said UNOCHA.

CHEDZA has damaged dozens of schools, health centers and other public infrastructure across Madagascar.
