Australia Firestorm

Climate change apocalypse Picture of the Week. Besides the nuke winter vibe, terrifying to think there is no place safe on land. I know these images stir all kind of anxiety on the social nets, but do they do any more than that? (Caption below. Larger version and photo gallery at Guardian.)

Honorable mention: Freak snow, flooding in Istanbul, Riyadh, Jerusalem. (In Focus/Atlantic)
