Washington, December 20 (ANI): In a new study, scientists have suggested that the Amazon's "flying rivers", humid air currents that deliver water to the vast rain forest, may be ebbing, which could have dire consequences for the region's ability to help curb global warming.
It takes a certain kind of mind to see the performance potential of a furniture dolly or to dispatch a performer to fly a kite dangerously low over an audience when the lack of an air current seems to guarantee that an unlucky patron will get doinked (fear not; kite flier David Brittain is a trained professional).
