Brazil floods: Animals stranded, families displaced as heavy rains continue

38

Rio Grande do Sul continues to be battered by heavy rains after catastrophic flooding swept Brazil’s southernmost state last week, leaving not just tens of thousands of people displaced, but animals stranded, too.

In Canoas, a single horse, which footage showed trapped on the roof of a building, has been captured, while rescuers worked to save dozens of dogs trapped in a building in the state capital of Porto Alegre.

One Porto Alegre family relocated completely to a shelter on an overpass, while a man in Eldorado do Sul has been using his wheel loader to transport displaced residents and family to safety.

More than 155,000 people have been left homeless, without food or water amid the floods. As of Wednesday, 131 people are still unaccounted for and 90 have died, according to the state’s civil defence agency.

Though regional rain is predicted to let up on Thursday, more is forecasted over the weekend.

  1. This tragedy could have been avoided, if it were not for the negligence and lack of prioritization of the city's representatives regarding the maintenance and hiring of specialized personnel for periodic maintenance and renovation of the dikes. Now with the destruction and death of people, they should be held criminally responsible!

  2. Although heatwaves are getting less severe, global warming is far from over. Let's vote for Green Party and tell your government to reduce CO2 emissions proactively.

  3. As of 2022, China was by far the world's largest coal consumer with 55% of energy use, an increase of 2% of the total energy from the year before.
    So China is accelerating the use of coal despite it having signed the Paris agreement.

  4. Brazil ?? has been moving closer to China for a while. How are things going for that country?
    – Western Liberal Democracies which include Asian countries such as South Korea, Taiwan ??, and Japan, are doing well,
    while countries in China's orbit or even China itself are struggling.

    Volume 20 End of the World and Climate Change

    Beloved in Christ Jesus The world throughout has come to a destruction and end of all times which cannot be prevented by any prophetic vision or science or protests. Despite pollution control laws by Governing authorities there will be no respite and as a witness to this the Bible says that everything has crossed their borders and starting with my mother, many other missionaries, prophets and holy men have stated that after two thousand years the destruction of the world will begin. At that time Son of God Christ Jesus will come down and judge the world and then the world will be completely destroyed. Beloved many treacherous people say that the world cannot be destroyed but once in a few thousand years such changes happening is inevitable which may change the world map only and nothing more than that and will also provide certain evidence to prove their claims. Do not believe in such people and sayings and if their sayings are true then why is mankind searching for habitable planets across the Universe??? But that’s not true because God of Israel will destroy all other forces of evil dwelling in those places. Jesus Said “Just as it happened during the time of Noah similar things will happen in the time of His coming, People were busy buying, selling, sowing but did not realize anything till the Floods came and swept them all away and destroyed. Whatever happened in the time of Lot will also happen during the Coming of Jesus. During the time of Lot people bought and sold, married and gave away in marriage and as soon as Lot let Sodom fire from the sky destroyed Sodom and similar things will happen during the coming of Jesus. As Christ said throughout the world there will be Global warming and the ice caps of the world will melt and increase the size of the oceans as a result the sea levels will increase which in turn will cover Islands and coastal Lands. There will be hurricanes, tornadoes, Flooding rains, Cyclonic rains, heat waves, earthquakes and due to which there will be endemic diseases and plagues across the world and through all these happening the world is marching towards a total disaster. The foundation of the world is compared to a multistoried building or an engine of a vehicle. As in a multi storied building the foundation is laid with sand, stone, cement, iron bars and strengthened. If a vehicle has to run smoothly it requires a well oiled engine and to cool the engine sufficiently it requires a good coolant and to run the engine it requires ignition current and petrol or gas. Similarly God has created the world on a foundation of plates, rocks and high mountains and to strengthen it more He included iron, Gold, silver, aluminum, clay, diamonds in their foundation. For the world to start spinning like starting an engine he put fire and volcanoes in the core of the earth. Since man cannot survive in the heat of the planet to cool down the earth he created coolants such as water bodies, rivers, seas, oceans, oils, natural resources, gas, coal, carbon, trees, forests etc and sent the winds over them. But Mankind along with their scientists for the sake of money dug out all these coolants like natural resources, petrol, diesel, gas, carbon, coal, iron, gold, silver, diamond, aluminum and have deprived the world of its cooling effects. Real Estate business has cut down forest and trees and turned them to business usage. As an engine due to excess heat ceases and stops running due to these the rotation of the planet also may stop, Rivers and water table of the planet will go dry, waves of the seas will cease therefore the destruction of the world is inevitable which cannot be prevented by any measures that we take to halt this destruction. But the coming of Christ Jesus is a truth. Therefore there is no use of protesting against climate change on roads and streets but instead go to a Church built in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, a catholic or a protestant or a Pentecostal and cry out beating your chest for yourself and your children then Jesus will come soon to save you and your Children. If you do not seek Christ in His church this death and destruction is inevitable is a truth in the name of Jesus. Jesus Said “If you do not accept me and my word you will die in your sins” AMEN
