Barack Obama becomes first American president to enter the Arctic 3.9.2015 Asian Age: International
President Barack Obama, accompanied by local fishermen, speaks to members of the media on Kanakanak Beach.

Washington: President Barack Obama crossed the Arctic Circle on Wednesday in a first by a sitting US president, telling residents in a far-flung Alaska village that their plight should be the world’s wake-up call on global warming. Obama’s visit to Kotzebue, a town of some 3,000 people in the Alaska Arctic, was designed to snap the country to attention by illustrating the ways warmer temperatures have already threatened entire communities and ways of life in Alaska. He said despite progress in reducing greenhouse gases, the planet is already warming and the US isn’t doing enough to stop it. “I’ve been trying to make the rest of the country more aware of the changing climate, but you’re already living it,” Obama told a crowd of more than 1,000 in this rough-and-tumble town on Alaska’s western ...

Australia, New Zealand defend climate plans, say face high costs 1.9.2015 DNA: Top News
Australia and New Zealand said on Tuesday they faced unusually high costs to cut greenhouse gas emissions because of their respective dependence on coal and livestock, after criticism that they are doing too little to tackle climate change. So far more than 50 nations representing 70 % of world emissions have submitted strategies to the United Nations for curbs on emissions beyond 2020, meant to be the building blocks of a UN climate deal due to be agreed in Paris in December. Australia, giving details of a plan issued last month, said that its relatively strong economic growth, a rising population and dependence on coal for 64 % of electricity generation made it costly to rein in emissions. "We think it is an ambitious target," Australia's climate ambassador Peter Woolcott told delegates at week-long talks in Bonn of a goal of reducing its emissions by between 26 and 28 % below 2005 levels by 2030. New Zealand's climate ambassador Jo Tyndall, the only other developed nation representative at the same ...

Deputy Minister for the Environment Wilma Mansveld wrote in a letter to parliament on Tuesday that the government would contest the 24 June ruling which ordered it to slash emissions by 25% from 1990 levels by 2020.
