THE PILOT of the doomed MH370 left "false trails" to dodge radars before the plane disappeared killing all 239 on board, it has been claimed. The theory that the captain made a series of zig-zagging movements to throw off air traffic teams comes seven years after the Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777 suddenly vanished - sparking the world's greatest aviation mystery . According to aerospace engineer Richard Godfrey - who has spent years investigating the flight’s 2014 disappearance - the pilot made a number of deliberate turns and speed changes to avoid detection before plunging into the Indian Ocean. Godfrey said his research suggests the pilot in command, Zaharie Ahmad Shah, took a “carefully planned” flight path to avoid “giving a clear idea where he was heading”, reports news.com.au. The Boeing 777 with 239 people on board mysteriously disappeared from radar after taking off from Kuala Lumpur International Airport, bound for Beijing, on March 8 2014. The plane … [Read more...] about MH370 pilot left ‘false trails’ to avoid detection before plane disappeared killing all 239 on board

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?
IT'S had us all playing detective for seven weeks - and after Sunday's Line of Duty, many fans are still trying to work something out. How did it all go so wrong? The nation has been gripped by series 6 and the hunt for "H" or "the fourth man," the bent copper lurking amongst the fictional crime drama who was in league with the OCG (Organised Crime Gang). And Mother of God, it wasn't who we were expecting. Even our AC-12 heroes, Superintendent Ted Hastings, Detective Inspector Kate Fleming and Detective Inspector Steve Arnott couldn't believe the top villain was, in fact, chief plonker, DSI Ian Buckells, played by Nigel Boyle. Neither could the fans. Almost 13 million viewers tuned into the BBC One show, but plenty vented their fury and disappointment on social media afterwards. Others reckon the big reveal was a good twist. For the DIR, we interrogate Sun readers for their verdicts. So, was writer Jed Mercurio guilty of a terrible ending or not guilty? … [Read more...] about Anti-climax or genius? Line of Duty fans are torn over THAT controversial series finale as “H” is finally unmasked
