The famous drug kingpin’s animals are causing havoc in Colombia.

One of the most notorious criminals of all time, Pablo Escobar, the Medellin cartel founder was thought to be one of the world’s richest men.

However, rather surprisingly, he’s also responsible for what ecologists have described as an ‘ecological time bomb.’

A group of hippos originally imported by Escobar to his private zoo decades ago have multiplied and, according to scientists, are now spreading through one of the country’s main waterways — the River Magdalena. …

The Northern White Rhino is teetering on the edge of extinction. As of today, there are only two left in the world — Najin and Fatu — and they’re both females.

To make matters worse, neither can carry a pregnancy.

In most cases, this would be the end of a species, with the remaining animals left to live out their final days. However, for the Northern White Rhino, hope remains.

In an attempt to save the doomed species, scientists from across the globe came up with an extraordinary idea that involved sperm samples of the male…


After his recent inauguration, President Joe Biden got straight to work combating climate change. Not only has he already re-joined the Paris Climate Agreement, but he also killed the Keystone Pipeline project, upsetting Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. With the new President jumping on board to combat climate change, I thought we should take a look at some of the leaders who paved the way.

China has morphed into a pantomime villain in recent years, fuelled in part by the actions of US President Donald Trump.

In 2012, he tweeted:

‘The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.’ — Donald Trump

Trump later denied making this comment…

Nearly every piece of news on climate change is negative. David Attenborough’s latest film, ‘A Life On Our Planet’, was extremely upsetting, seeing the destruction that humanity has caused.

To be fair, there’s a reason for the negativity. The threat that climate change poses to humanity and the animal kingdom is huge. We are facing a mass extinction, yet many people still refuse to believe or ignore the existence of the danger. We are already feeling the effects of climate change, on a large scale.

However, I wanted to provide some promising stories — a source of hope for the…


COVID may have disrupted English football over the last few months, but the introduction and continued divisive decisions of VAR have killed it.

When will this madness end? Last season we had referees and the VAR officials at Stockley Park making some horrendous shouts, but we gave them the benefit of the doubt with hopes that it was down to it being the first season of VAR being used.

Finally, after days of waiting for votes to be counted, Joe Biden has been called as the next President of the USA. After four long years, the White House finally has a leader who believes in climate change. But there is still plenty of work to be done.

Currently, the USA produces 15% of the worlds CO2 emissions — that’s the second highest worldwide, after China.


David Attenborough is perhaps England and the UK’s biggest national treasure. He is loved by millions across the globe, for both his conservation work and his contribution to TV over the years.

Why then, do the messages, pleas and begs of a man loved by so many, fall on deaf ears?

From ‘Planet Earth’ and ‘Blue Planet’, to his latest Netflix special ‘A Life On Our Planet’, David Attenborough has been spreading the same message for decades: that climate change will do irreversible damage to the planet, its species, and mankind.

In his most recent project, he states that the…
