Crisis in Caracas

Caracas, Venezuela

10°30′N 66°55′W


Caracas is the capital and largest city in Venezuela, with more than three million residents. In recent months, plummeting oil prices combined with a significant drought has created a dire situation in cities across the nation. Four hour blackouts are now a regular occurrence and some regions go without power for days at a time. Most supermarkets have almost no food to sell, hospitals have no medicine, and crime is rampant and escalating. We hope this post continues to raise awareness for the crisis in Venezuela and that the situation on the ground improves in the very near future.

Center pivot irrigation is used throughout the Wadi As-Sirhan Basin of Saudi Arabia. Water is mined from depths as great as one kilometer (~3,000 ft), pumped to the surface, and evenly distributed by sprinklers that rotate 360 degrees. Spurred by a government effort to strengthen its agriculture sector, cultivated land in Saudi Arabia grew from 400,000 acres in 1976 to more than 8 million acres by 1993. For a sense of scale, the total area shown in this Overview is approximately forty square miles (32,000 acres).

Wow, look at Central Park in New York City. The park spans 843 acres, which is 6% of the island of Manhattan. One of the most influential innovations in the park’s design was its ‘separate circulation systems’ for pedestrians, cyclists, horse riders, and cars. The park contains numerous tennis courts and baseball fields, an ice-skating rink, and a swimming pool. It also serves as the finish line for the New York City Marathon and New York City Triathlon. This incredible photograph was captured by our friend Stephen Wattrus from his airplane window during his arrival into the city yesterday!
