UN agency seeks to end rift on new aircraft emission rules 8.2.2016 The Guardian -- Front Page

Europe and US try to bridge differences to come up with the world’s first carbon dioxide emissions standards for aircraft

Europe and the United States tried to bridge differences over emissions standards for aircraft on Sunday as global aviation leaders prepared to adopt new rules that could affect Boeing Co and Airbus Group’s production of the largest jetliners and freighters.

Proposals being debated in Montreal by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), the United Nations’ aviation agency, would force makers of the world’s largest passenger jets to upgrade or stop producing certain models as early as 2023, according to sources close to the negotiations and documents seen by Reuters.

Clean countries most vulnerable to climate change 8.2.2016 Asian Age: International
Countries that emit the least amounts of greenhouse gases are ironically the most vulnerable to climate change effects such as increased frequency of natural disasters, changing habitats and human health impacts, a new study has found. Those countries emitting the highest amount of greenhouse gases are least vulnerable, researchers said. The study found that 20 of the 36 highest emitting countries — including US, Canada, Australia, China, and much of Western Europe — were least vulnerable. Eleven of the 17 countries with low to moderate emissions were most vulnerable to climate change. Most were found in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia. The study by University of Queensland in Australia and the Wildlife Conservation Society shows a dramatic global mismatch between nations producing the most greenhouse gases and the ones most vulnerable to the effects of climate change. The majority of the most vulnerable countries are African and Small Island States. These countries are exposed to serious environmental ...

'This is a radical change of our values': readers on Denmark's new asylum laws 3.2.2016 The Guardian -- Front Page

One week since Denmark approved laws to seize assets from refugees and delay family reunifications for three years, Danes describe the current mood

Denmark appears to be a country split down the middle. While a lot of people are angry and perplexed at what they believe are inhumane new measures, others back the government’s actions amid genuine concerns over social integration and the welfare state.

Some argue the government is continuing a subtle fight against minorities, doing little to help people integrate safely while laying the blame at the people who are trying.

Spending watchdog to examine scrapping of £1bn carbon capture plan 31.1.2016 The Guardian -- Front Page

National Audit Office to investigate taxpayer value for money in George Osborne’s decision to halt CCS and question plans to secure UK energy supply

The National Audit Office is to investigate George Osborne’s decision to scrap a £1bn prototype carbon capture scheme which cost the taxpayer at least £60m, a letter seen by the Guardian shows.

The spending watchdog said it would be looking into the expenses incurred in running, and then prematurely halting, a CCS auction. It will also examine how the Department of Energy and Climate Change (Decc) plans to secure the country’s future energy needs.
