When Joe Biden boasted to world leaders last month that the US would halve its greenhouse emissions by 2030 from 2005 levels — urging his counterparts from countries like China and India to commit to stronger action — the US president left environmentalists unconvinced. The cuts are more ambitious than previous targets to burn less fossil fuel. But they will not stop the US from overshooting its fair share of the emissions that can be released to meet the 2015 Paris Agreement pledge to keep warming well below 2 degrees Celsius, and ideally 1.5C, according to independent research project Climate Action Tracker. This is a question of justice: The US has polluted the atmosphere more than any other economy on the planet and also has more money to deal with it. Factoring in those inequalities, Biden's pledge is "very close to or just within" the range of cuts needed to reach 2C, said Andreas Geiges, a researcher at Climate Analytics, which jointly runs the project. But it falls … [Read more...] about Climate justice: Do pledges ignore unequal emissions?

CONTROVERSIAL pundit Candace Owens called Derek Chauvin's guilty verdict "mob justice" while speaking with Tucker Carlson, who asked if the trial was "giving up civilization." "What we're seeing is mob justice," Owens said in response to Carlson . "It now means that the Democrats can get whatever they want." Owens made the controversial remarks on Carlson's show following Chauvin's trial, where the jury found him guilty of all three counts of murder and manslaughter. This, Owens argued, was an unfair verdict. "This was not a fair trial. No person can say this was a fair trial." "The media and the Democrats now have enough power to bully and to lie to and to create propaganda," she argued. "You'd think in a country like ours, you'd think the most civilized and most just," Carlson asked. "Here you have to consider a murder case through the lens of politics.

A 21-tonne "out of control" Chinese rocket is expected to land on Earth on Saturday, the US defence department has said. The rocket launched on Wednesday and successfully managed to deliver the core module of China's space station. While the rocket will explode once it falls out of orbit, there are concerns the Long March 5B's debris could fall and potentially land on an inhabited area, Space News reports. But according to experts it is impossible to know where exactly it will land as its speed makes it too unpredictable. US Department of Defense Spokesperson Mike Howard said: “US Space Command is aware of and tracking the location of the Chinese Long March 5B in space". What are your thoughts on this? Let us know in the comments section below. But the statement adds: "Its exact entry point into the Earth’s atmosphere cannot be pinpointed until within hours of its reentry, which is expected around May 8.” “Until then, the 18th Space Control Squadron will be … [Read more...] about ‘Out of control’ Chinese rocket could crash land to Earth on Saturday, experts say
