In the Honduran on-line newspaper, El Heraldo, government official and head of a September 2011 fact-finding mission, Major José Marcelino Iraheta, reports on an alarming level of deforestation in legally protected forests, stating that livestock grazing is a major cause for the destruction.

Addressing a conference in Austria on September 22, 2011, international experts warned that lakes and streams in the legendary Alps are in danger of drying due to climate change, noting a loss of water reserves and that glaciers in Switzerland alone have lost one-fifth of their surface area in the past 15 years.
