Dying crops, spiking energy bills, showers once a week. In South America, the climate future has arrived.

So low are levels of the Paraná running through Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina that some ranchers are herding cattle across dried-up riverbeds typically lined with cargo-toting barges. Raging wildfires in Paraguay have brought acrid smoke to the limits of the capital.

No encontraron eco las iniciativas de López Obrador de sustituir a la Organización de Estados Americanos (OEA) por la CELAC, ni de hacer que esta transitara hacia un organismo similar a la Comunidad Económica Europea (CEE), la cual dio pie a la Unión Europea (UE).

Opinión: Crisis en el gobierno de Argentina: Alberto vs. Cristina y la trampa de la unidad

Las nuevas designaciones en el gabinete fueron leídas por un sector de la opinión pública como una victoria de la vicepresidenta en la descarnada interna oficialista. Sin embargo, esa mirada pasa por alto el hecho de que no son personas que responden políticamente a ella, además del hecho de que todos los botones del gabinete económico (central en un país con 42% de personas en situación de pobreza) siguen en manos del presidente.
