Saved the sovereignty of USA, says ‘proud’ Donald Trump on leaving Paris Climate Accord 30.6.2017 DNA: Opinion
US President Donald Trump strongly defended his decision to pull out of the Paris climate accord, declaring he was "proud" of the move. "In order to protect American jobs, companies and workers, we've withdrawn the United States from the one-sided Paris Climate Accord," Trump said to applause, during a speech on the future of the US energy sector. "I will tell you we're proud of it," he said. "And when I go around, there are so many people that say thank you. You saved the sovereignty of our country." "And maybe we'll be back into it someday, but it will be on better terms," he vowed. "It will be on fair terms." Climate change has become a major bone of contention between the United States and its Western allies, and the issue is set to loom large when Trump meets Group of 20 leaders in Hamburg, Germany next week. German Chancellor Angela Merkel appeared headed for a collision course with Trump, vowing Thursday to seek a clear commitment to fight global warming from at the July 7-summit, and calling the ...

Global warming means more sweltering days 24.6.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
Extremely hot days, when temperatures soar to 95 degrees Fahrenheit or higher, can be miserable. Crops wilt in the fields. Electric grids strain to keep pace with demand. People are at greater risk of dying. And those hot temperatures are expected to be much more frequent in the coming decades. A new analysis from the Climate Impact Lab examined how extremely hot days are expected to multiply this century if countries take moderate climate action. In this scenario, countries would take some measures, but not drastic ones, to curb emissions — roughly the trajectory of the current pledges under the Paris climate agreement. The resulting global warming would still cause significant shifts for many cities. In Washington, from 1986 to 2005, an average of seven days each year had temperatures of at least 95 degrees. By the end of the century, the city can expect 29 of these extremely hot days per year, on average. (The likely range is 14 to 46 hot days per year.) Phoenix is used to the heat, averaging 124 days ...

Bovine slaughter ban not meant to hurt any community: Harsh Vardhan 5.6.2017 DNA: India
The Centre has received several suggestions on its recent ban on cattle slaughter and is now contemplating ways to respond to it, Harsh Vardhan, Environment Minister told reporters on the sidelines of World Environment Day celebrations. "This is not a prestige issue for us. The new rules under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act were not intended to affect the food habits of a particular community or hit out at the slaughter business," the minister said. Vardhan also said that the US pulling out of the Paris Agreement does not change India's commitment to fighting global warming and climate change. "India's commitment to the different elements of nature is not because of any agreement; it is inherent to us, built over thousands of years. We have been working tirelessly on the issue for many years, even before the Paris Agreement was signed. The PM has reiterated that our stance will not change," he said. During the celebrations, the minister also released a mobile application which has the GIS of ...

  Hours after US President Donald Trump announced that US would pull out of the Paris Climate Deal, France’s president Emmanuel Macron shared a video from his official Facebook account, urging the world to work together. “It’s time we made our planet great again,” he said, taking a dig at Trump’s Presidential campaign slogan. In a three-minute video that has gone viral, Macron said that climate change was one of the major issues of our time. “It has been changing our lives every day and millions are impacted by it,” he said.

Paris Climate Deal: World leaders express regret over US’ withdrawal 2.6.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
United States President Donald Trump on Thursday said he would withdraw the United States from the landmark 2015 global agreement to fight climate change, drawing anger and condemnation from world leaders and heads of industry. Trump, tapping into the "America First" message he used when he was elected president last year, said the Paris accord would undermine the U.S. economy, cost U.S. jobs, weaken American national sovereignty and put the country at a permanent disadvantage to the other countries of the world. "We're getting out," Trump said at a ceremony in the White House Rose Garden under sunny skies on a warm June day, fulfilling a major election campaign pledge. "We don't want other leaders and other countries laughing at us anymore. And they won't be," Trump said. My job as President is to do everything within my power to give America a level playing field. #AmericaFirst — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 1, 2017 "The same nations asking us to stay in the agreement are the countries that ...

Christian Conservative: Jesus Wouldn't Want Me To Care About Global Warming 1.6.2017 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
What would Jesus do about climate change ? According to one self-described Christian, not much.  Conservative pundit Erick Erickson fired off a tweet Wednesday saying his savior called on him to be a good steward for the planet... but that concept doesn’t extend to global warming: I worship Jesus, not Mother Earth. He calls us all to be good stewards of the planet, but doesn't mean I have to care about global warming. — Erick Erickson (@EWErickson) May 31, 2017 The tweet drew a sharp response from many, including other Christians, and no small amount of bemusement from Erickson, who suggested people read the replies to get “ your laugh for the night .”  Here’s a sampling:  Well it's gunna really suck for Jesus when he returns and most of the planet is under water. — Paolo Gregoletto (@TriviumPaolo) May 31, 2017 If you think Jesus cares more about oil profiteering than protecting the earth you are reading the wrong book, my dude. — Molly Knight (@molly_knight) May 31, 2017 I worship Jesus, not the poor. ...
