Almost 4 million hectares of forest are on fire in Siberia.

Huge cities are covered in a toxic haze.

This is nightmarish. Climate change has fueled unprecedented wildfires across the vast Siberian forest, undermining the tundra, releasing long-trapped carbon and in turn further fueling climate change. https://t.co/Mhl54kp1kr

The Kremlin says after speaking with Vladimir Putin, President Trump offered U.S. help in fighting widespread forest fires raging in parts of Siberia.
But the two countries have somewhat different interpretations of the call.https://t.co/X4HPlbrbac

cool, cool, totally normal that Trump called Putin this week and discussed with him the need for a new US ambassador to Russia. https://t.co/GXyA9SucJE

The United States terminated a major treaty of the Cold War, a nuclear arms deal with Russia. The decision to abandon the 32-year-old treaty has prompted worries in Europe and Asia, echoing an era that once seemed banished to the history books. https://t.co/RiDKEj9Sgb

Another first in 70 years of Independent India. This is what happens when you fill the most important ministry of the government with incompetent, fearful officials — they can't even face the media, let alone fixing the nation's worsening economic woes.

The media needs to do a better job of reporting on the economy in the Trump administration. Job growth has slowed since Obama years. The stock market growth has slowed since the Obama years. The deficit is up dramatically since the Obama years.

One the central message of the Dem nominee could be: the Trump economy actually sucks. He thinks it's great because he's given all his rich buddies and his family corrupt giveaways, but he's screwed you.
I mean, a GM plant just closed 10 miles away. Maybe talk about that?

Wow. Fox News's Neil Cavuto fact-checks Trump's lies about tariffs immediately after Trump's Q&A ends.

Novel thinking, but this pre-supposes that the nationalist community who voted SF are still on some level prepared to play ball with Westminster in any form. Abstentionism transcends party lines – NI nationalist voters were offered a chance to participate in the HoC and said no https://t.co/4dlFmzxMBh

This call from Paul Mason for Labour to lead a popular front against Brexit makes perfect sense but will fail because of …oh go on guess https://t.co/5ILKQAx0cB

Labour's been the problem since Corbyn was elected leader & backed May to InvokeA50 with as little clue & zero due diligence.
Things don't seem to be going ro plan though.

This won’t make the front pages of the 5th columnist British hyper-right wing press where journalism has morphed into Johnson worship. EU has just chosen Bulgarian Kristalina Georgieva to run the IMF. UK marginalised and irrelevant – the new Brexit order. The crazed govern us.

I give it 2 – 3 days tops for Express readers to keep on one-upping their fantasy Brexit leaving night scenarios to the point where Boris Johnson is backflipping onto the Proms stage in a Union Jack onesie while Jacob Rees-Mogg swings on a trapeze tooting “Jerusalem” on a kazoo. pic.twitter.com/kHaw6v6wlJ
