It's Down to the Wire on Climate Agreement in Copenhagen In Copenhagen today, dozens of developing countries—including China, India and Brazil—threatened to walk out of climate talks , insisting that the developed world isn’t doing enough to cut greenhouse gas emissions.
Cold Water Hits Global Warming Agreements Developing nations threatened to walk out of Copenhagen today, dramatizing the split between rich and poor that has haunted climate talks for 20 years. Who should move first to reduce greenhouse gases? Do developed nations, like the United States , owe something to those most threatened, like Tuvalu in the South Pacific? What about China, India and Brazil -- fighting poverty by industrializing now — in the process creating a new group of major polluters? We look at issues that could derail the best of intentions on dealing with Global Warming.
Terrorism and tweets, hate speech and murder Just days before an election, Britain is coping with a rash of deadly terrorism, and Prime Minister Theresa May is on the defensive. And again today, President Trump has tweeted criticism of the Mayor of London. Later, a double murder in Portland, Oregon has revealed the ugly past of a supposedly “progressive” city. One immediate question: is “hate speech” protected by the First Amendment?
What is Trump's plan for Middle East peace? On his first foreign tour, President Trump has promised "peace" between Israel and the Palestinians. Are there any details for re-starting talks that have been stalled for the past three years?
