March 18 & 21: from Bhutan - Iraq - Ethiopia - Toronto

Climate change. Believe in it or not, treacherous weather systems are causing perilous effects in much of the world.

Right now, Ethiopian farmers battle a drought that threatens the new high-yield wheat crop, by reaching into the past for ancient seeds that can stand it.

And Bhutan fights flooding, one rock at a time, in the place where our reporter says rocky peaks sit like old men...with glaciers wrinkling down their faces.

And, the word from Limbo World, where non-countries do almost anything to become real ones. Even tending to a reporter's wounds.

March 4 & 7: from Las Cruces, New Mexico - San Remo, Italy - Cardamom Mountains, Cambodia - Seoul - Falkland Islands

Criminalizing immigrants. Some Americans call it "crimmigration." And if that didn't kill Jesus Galindo, what did?

In Italy, old regional dialects are getting new respect, especially if you sing them.

The Brits and Argentina are at it again. And Falkland Islanders are in no mood. We take the temperature of the South Atlantic.

In Cambodia, they went looking for tigers. They found human bones. Whose remains are in the lost jars of the jungle? 

A tale of two Koreas. Defectors struggle to get out of the North, only to struggle to fit into the South.

And, you sensitive Canadians! Your letters about those bully Brits who bashed our Olympics.
