Fears Barack Obama will omit climate change from State of Union speech 25.1.2010 Guardian: Environment
Environmental organisations believe Obama is being urged to downplay climate change during this year's speech Global warming – a signature issue for Barack Obama – is at risk of getting the short shrift in this year's State of the Union speech on Wednesday, further shrinking the already slim prospects of getting a climate change law through Congress , environmentalists say. Obama is being lobbied hard to send a strong signal that climate change remains at the top of his agenda and issue a forceful call to Congress to move forward on legislation this year. "I think the president needs to underscore that climate and energy reform is a priority for 2010 as specifically as possible," said Senator John Kerry, who has been leading the ...

Barack Obama heritage effect boosts African tourism industry 25.1.2010 The Guardian -- World Latest
• Number of tourists visiting Africa rose by 5% in 2009 • Global tourism industry declined by 4% amid recession Africa bucked global trends by attracting an increase in tourists last year, attributable in part to the "Obama effect".

This compared with a 4% drop worldwide, blamed on the global recession and swine flu outbreak. Taleb Rifai, head of the UN World Tourism Organisation, told a trade fair in Madrid: "There has been a shift in the way people look at Africa. Compared to 10 years ...

Banking reforms only half the solution: global economic imbalance needs to be addressed 25.1.2010 The Guardian -- World Latest
Barack Obama's proposals intend to limit the size of Wall Street's banks, but the governor of the Bank of England says bold action must be taken to prevent another financial crisis The post-war world was built on three main principles. The first was that governments should be active in their domestic economies to promote growth. The second was that they should co-operate internationally to make sure their individual strategies were compatible. The third was that unless capital in general, and the finance sector in particular, was controlled, it would prove nigh-on impossible to achieve the first two objectives. Bit by bit we are returning to something like the world view of the Golden Age. It goes without saying that we are now talking ...
