Pledge to go-green: London, Paris amongst 12 big cities to buy only zero-emission buses from 2025 23.10.2017 DNA: Top News
Twelve major cities including London, Paris, Los Angeles and Cape Town promised on Monday to buy only zero-emissions buses from 2025 and to make major areas free of fossil fuel emissions by 2030 to protect the environment. The 12, with a combined population of almost 80 million, said they would promote walking, cycling and the use of public transport under a joint "fossil-fuel-free streets declaration". Many cities are setting tougher environmental goals than governments to limit air pollution and to achieve the goals of the 2015 Paris climate agreement to curb greenhouse gas emissions. "Air pollution caused by petrol and diesel vehicles is killing millions of people in cities around the world," Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo said in a statement. "The same emissions are also causing climate change." The mayors, part of the C40 group of cities which is seeking to slow global warming, said they would "procure only zero-emissions buses from 2025 and ensure that major areas of their city are zero emissions by ...

Pope Francis blasts US for 'slap in the face' to Vatican for pulling out of Paris Climate Accord 16.10.2017 DNA: India
Pope Francis implicitly criticised the United States on Monday for pulling out of the Paris agreement on climate change, praising it as a means to control the devastating effects of global warming. The United States is the only country out of 195 signatories to have withdrawn from the accord, which aims to cut emissions blamed for the rise in temperatures. U.S. President Donald Trump announced the decision in June shortly after visiting the pope, a strong supporter of the deal. At the time a Vatican official said the move was a "slap in the face" for the pope and the Vatican. "We see consequences of climate change every day," the pope said in an address to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) at its headquarters in Rome. "Thanks to scientific knowledge, we know how we have to confront the problem and the international community has also worked out the legal methods, such as the Paris Accord, which sadly, some have abandoned," he said. Under the deal, United States had committed to ...

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 ...
