Hong Kong's harnessing of solar and wind power lags far behind the International Energy Agency recommendations. A new Climate Action Plan will be released in the third quarter of 2021. Chai Hua reports from Shenzhen.

The climate change effects from global warming are not just a theory anymore. The devastating July floods across Germany, Austria and Belgium cut off entire districts and blocked emergency aid from reaching communities. Two hundred deaths were recorded with more expected after the flood waters recede.

In Henan province, China, the flooding from unusually heavy rainfall this month trapped an underground train, burst riverbanks, damaged dams, and submerged homes, displacing almost 1.5 million people. The Indian Nanda Devi glacier broke off in the Himalayas last week, smashing the Dhauliganga river valley below, destroying two hydro power plants, and leaving 125 people missing.
