Kryeministri Rama ishte nisur drejt Nju Jorkut, ku do të merrte pjesë në Asamblenë e Përgjithshme të OKB-së. Ndërkaq, raportohet se deri tani të paktën 26 persona ndodhen në Spitalin e Traumës pasi kanë marrë lëndime. Për fat të mirë asnjë prej tyre nuk ka rrezik për jetën.

The Supreme Court’s decision on the legality of prorogation, Labour conference and the UN General Assembly. As I say in The Sun this morning, Boris Johnson’s address in New York will be more ‘Green Giant’ than ‘Incredible Hulk’. He’ll stress the UK’s environmental credentials; announcing a new biodiversity fund designed to help save the Afrian elephant, the black rhino and the pangolin. But more important than the speech he’ll make is the meetings that will take place in the margins. He’ll see most of the key players in the Brexit talks in New York, including a meeting with the Irish leader Leo Varadkar on Monday. He is also expected to see Angela Merkel and Emmanuel Macron, possibly together.

New York is bracing for the rising sea levels that climate change will bring, and preparations have already begun -- but the long-term costs of adapting to a warmer, wetter world are expected to be astronomical. Protective barriers made of sand have appeared in Manhattan and Brooklyn, with man-made dunes dotting the most exposed beaches, as New York seeks to be a pioneer in the field of climate change adaptation. But that is only the start of a long and staggeringly expensive fight to hold back the water. After Hurricane Sandy struck in 2012, leaving 44 people dead and inflicting $19 billion (17 billion euros) worth of damage, New Yorkers are in little doubt about the destruction climate extremes can bring. But moving away from the shoreline is almost inconceivable in such a densely populated space, where real estate prices are sky high.
