Canada is no land of wonder, indigenous people have faced neglect and abuse: Justin Trudeau 22.9.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
Declaring that Canada is "no land of wonders," Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has told the United Nations that his country was working to address failures in the treatment of its indigenous people. Trudeau yesterday told the UN General Assembly that Canada's 1.2 million indigenous people had mostly known "humiliation, neglect and abuse" in a country often held up as shining example of diversity. "We know that the world expects Canada to strictly adhere to international human rights standards," said Trudeau, who has put reconciliation with first nations at the top of his reform agenda. "That is what we expect of ourselves, too." Trudeau drew applause when he pledged Canada's "unwavering" support to global efforts to combat global warming which he said was affecting the lifestyles of Inuit communities in the north. Canada's permafrost is melting in the Arctic and "huge pieces of tundra" are eroding into the ocean, he said. Trudeau also took an implicit swipe at the US over its withdrawal from the Paris ...

Global warming scare: Glaciers in Asia to shrink by 33% by 2100 14.9.2017 DNA: Mumbai
Asian glaciers are set to shrink by at least a third by 2100 due to climate change, researchers said on Thursday, threatening millions who depend on their meltwaters for drinking, farming and hydro-electricity. The scientists' prediction is based on an assumption the world will limit global temperature rises to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels - although many expect Earth will be much hotter than this by the end of the century. "As we have already considerably warmed the earth since the industrial era, we have caused an imbalance of the glaciers," said Philip Kraaijenbrink, the study's author and a geography researcher at Utrecht University in the Netherlands. "We observe their retreat almost everywhere on the globe. Even if we (do) not warm the climate any more at all, starting today, 14 percent of the ice will be lost," he told the Thomson Reuters Foundation. Under the Paris climate accord, countries pledged to keep the rise in average global temperatures below 2 degrees Celsius above ...

Those who are climate change deniers are stupid: Pope Francis 11.9.2017 DNA: Top News
Pope Francis today slammed climate change doubters as "stupid" in the wake of a spate of hurricanes that have thrashed the US, Mexico and the Caribbean. "Those who deny it (climate change) should go to the scientists and ask them. They are very clear, very precise," the pontiff said today during a press conference on the return leg of a five-day Colombia trip. "A phrase from the Old Testament comes to mind: 'man is stupid, a stubborn, blind man'," he added. Francis said individuals and politicians had a "moral responsibility" to act on advice from scientists, who had clearly outlined what must be done to halt the course of global warming. "These aren't opinions pulled out of thin air. They are very clear," he said. "They (world leaders) decide and history will judge those decisions," he added. The pope has been an ardent supporter of efforts to combat climate change and its consequences to the world's most vulnerable populations, in terms of pollution, disease, wars and migration. He has regularly ...
