Extreme weather conditions will kill 152,000 Europeans a year by 2100: Study 5.8.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
Europe's death toll from weather disasters could rise 50-fold by the end of this century, with extreme heat alone killing more than 150,000 people a year by 2100 if nothing is done to curb the effects of climate change, scientists said on Friday. In a study in The Lancet Planetary Health journal, the scientists said their findings showed climate change placing a rapidly increasing burden on society, with two in three people in Europe likely to be affected if greenhouse gas emissions and extreme weather events are not controlled. The predictions, based on an assumption of no reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and no improvement in policies to reduce the impact of extreme climatic events, show European weather-related deaths rising from 3,000 a year between 1981 and 2010 to 152,000 a year between 2071 and 2100. "Climate change is one of the biggest global threats to human health of the 21st century, and its peril to society will be increasingly connected to weather-driven hazards," said Giovanni ...

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 "In order to protect American jobs, companies and workers, we've withdrawn the United States from the one-sided Paris Climate Accord," Trump said to applause, during a speech on the future of the US energy sector.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 ...

Massive Coal Mine Closer To Reality As Beloved Reef Crumbles To Climate Change 6.6.2017 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
SYDNEY ― An Indian mining giant announced Tuesday the “official start” of a proposed $16 billion coal project in Australia that conservationists say threatens the  Great Barrier Reef . Adani Group chairman  Gautam Adani  said the company had approved its “ final investment decision ” regarding the controversial project in central Queensland. The  100-square-mile Carmichael mine  would produce millions of tons of the fossil fuel each year. It has faced severe backlash in the country from environmental groups who say the project would negate Australia’s pledges to limit greenhouse gas emissions and harm the environment ― particularly the  imperiled reef, located off the state’s coast. “We have been challenged by activists in the courts, in inner city streets, and even outside banks that have not even been approached to finance the project,” said Adani, who founded the energy company, at a press conference. “We are still facing activists. But we are committed to this project.” In recent months, Australian ...

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 ...
