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 The United States is the only country out of 195 signatories to have withdrawn from the accord, which aims to cut emissions blamed for the rise in temperatures.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 ...

India ready to work above and beyond Paris deal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions: Sushma Swaraj 20.9.2017 DNA: Top News
 India today reaffirmed its commitment to the landmark Paris climate change agreement, saying it is willing to "work above and beyond" the pact to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, during a UN 'Leadership Summit on Environment Pact', said that India had been at the forefront of the debate on environment and development. Her remarks came amid uncertainty over the US role in the deal after President Donald Trump in June announced that America was withdrawing from the Paris deal, arguing that it gives undue advantage to countries like India and China. India, which is the world's third largest carbon polluter, along with more than 190 nations reached a pact in December 2015 with an aim to prevent an increase in the global average temperature and keep it well below 2 degrees Celsius. The deal, which replaced the 1997 Kyoto Protocol, was ratified last October. Participating in the UN meet hosted by Secretary General Antonio Guterres, Swaraj said India was willing to work ...

The US is determined to withdraw from the Paris climate pact unless it gets a favourable term, President Donald Trump's top economic adviser said at the United Nations today.

This position was made very clear during the breakfast," the White House said in a statement after the meeting. "Today s Energy Minister Breakfast was a useful conversation with many of our international allies and partners. We discussed the president's energy agenda, and the role that US energy resources and technologies can play in promoting energy security, driving economic growth, and reducing emissions at home and globally," a senior White House official said.
