The science is clear: If catastrophic global warming is to be averted, global greenhouse gases have to be reduced — and fast. A 2019 United Nations Environment Program report warned that the world must cut emissions by 7.6% annually until 2030 in order to keep temperature increases below the 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit) ambition outlined in the Paris Agreement. If the world continues at its current pace, heating is predicted to reach almost double that. And much of the power to make a difference lies with the big emitters. So are they making progress? USA: Tides of change Though the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting economic crisis led to a drop in energy use in 2020 compared to the previous year, the United States is still second only to China in terms of global CO2 emissions.

MPs have declared that Uighurs and other ethnic and religious minorities in China's Xinjiang region are being subjected to genocide. The House of Commons on Thursday approved a motion calling on the government to act to fulfil its obligations under international human rights law. Although the motion passed by MPs is non-binding on the government, it will increase pressure on ministers to take a harder stance over the issue. In January, the US declared China had committed genocide in its repression of the Uighurs, while national parliaments in Canada and the Netherlands have also made the same declaration.

Advertisement During Thursday's debate in the Commons, former Conservative leader Sir Iain Duncan Smith urged the government to "rethink their position". "We will not gain any particular friendship by not calling out genocide from the … [Read more...] about House of Commons declares Uighurs are being subjected to genocide in China

A woman whose dad begged her to help him commit suicide is "riddled with guilt" that she still can't ease his suffering. Chris Lamb asked his daughter Kate to get him some pills to end his life after he was diagnosed with vascular dementia. The mum-of-three was heartbroken by the request - but was powerless to do as her dad asked. Several years on and Chris, 73, is double incontinent and does not know who his family are. Now Kate is campaigning to legalise euthanasia and assisted suicide in the UK, in the hope that people such as her once proud dad and aunt are able to end their lives how they choose. "Before he got ill, my dad said to me 'I want to go on my own terms, I don't want it to be undignified," Kate told The Mirror. "He was a proud working man, he worked for the deputy Prime Minister's office in London, and yet in a short space of time he became double incontinent. Now he has to walk with a walker and has no control over what he does. "Why shouldn't he … [Read more...] about Mum-of-three ‘riddled with guilt’ that she can’t help dad with dementia kill himself
