Leave it to ITN to come up with some short and (sometimes) sweet videos with which to catch up on some of the week’s environmental news.

We’ve gathered three (yes, three) bite-sized eco-news reports in one place. Why? Because, like the Mouseketeers, we like you!

First, check out Italy’s Mount Etna as she spectacularly spews forth molten lava and ash into the Sicilian sky.

Next there’s a report on antipodean wildfires raging across New Zealand and Australia.

Finally, Sea Shepherd and Japanese whalers fight for both whale rights and whaling rights on the high seas. Guess who fights for which.
