Op-ed; At the weekend members of Theresa May's cabinet lost their cool and issued vague military threats against Spain over Gibraltar; Monday Donald Trump has jumped on the bandwagon and issued in some ways less vague threats against North Korea and China.
But while some world leaders were looking at destroying our world Mother Nature had unleashed her forces in Colombia.
Devastating mudslides in the south west of the country Friday night killed at least 254 people.
Sadly the death toll includes dozens of children.
BBC News reports Monday "President Santos said the death toll was 254, with at least 170 of the dead identified, including 44 children."
The President has declared a state of emergency.
Parts of the town of Mocoa in the Putumayo province of Colombia were buried by rocks and mud during heavy rain. It happened while many people were sleeping. They did not stand a chance.
Wildlife and pets were obviously hit too.
A veritable avalanche of muddy water swept through the town Friday night after three rivers burst their banks following many day's worth of rain falling in just hours.
The airforce is dropping vital supplies and the Red Cross is working to reconnect families. More than 1000 military personnel have been deployed in the area.
The region has experienced similar "natural" disasters.
Obviously much needs to be done to make the region safer and less prone to mudslides.
Which takes us back to U.S. President Donald Trump.
As Trump sabre rattles at China and North Korea he plans to take his country back decades by scrapping "climate change" initiatives.
Mr Trump and his team are global warming and climate change sceptics.
Perhaps they can explain their stance to the people of countries like Colombia directly hit by extreme weather.
