Nepal impacted by climate change despite minimum role in global crisis says

first_imgKathmandu: Nepal is experiencing the impact of climate change although it has a negligible role in the global crisis, Prime Minister K P Sharma Oli said Tuesday, citing the first ever tornado that hit the Himalayan nation in March this year. Nepal is considered one of the most vulnerable countries in the world for climate change effects. Inaugurating a four-day meeting of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) here, Oli said the rising temperature, retreating glaciers and erratic rainfall followed by extreme weather events are causing damages to the country’s people and the economy.

Despite its negligible role to greenhouse gas emissions Nepal is extremely vulnerable to the impacts of climate change,” Oli said. “Some countries are well prepared to deal with them, but countries like Nepal are most vulnerable, he said. Oli said the climate in Nepal is becoming more vulnerable and unpredictable. “Nepal witnessed a delayed monsoon. We also had first tornado in our recorded history,” said Oli. Also Read – US blacklists 28 Chinese entities over abuses in XinjiangA tornado hit Nepal on March 31 this year followed by massive rainstorm in various places in Nepal, killing at least 31 people and injuring 600 others. Since last week, floods and landslides caused by incessant monsoon rains across Nepal have till now claimed 78 lives, left 40 people injured and displaced over 17,500 others. The international conference on climate change that kicked off here on Tuesday is being attended by 250 climate scientists, bureau members of the IPCC hailing from more than 50 countries. The conference is the second Lead Authors Meeting of the IPCC Working Group -II for deliberations as part of their preparation for the Sixth Assessment Report which is scheduled to be out in 2022. Prime Minister Oli urged the scientists to consider the plight of small mountainous and small-island nations while preparing the report. Policy makers and climate scientists said the timing of the gathering in Nepal is perfect for drawing global attention to Nepal and the whole region which is highly vulnerable and already witnessing adverse impacts of climate change. Meeting here in Kathmandu reminds us–in a very direct way–of the strong interdependence of human and natural systems, and how both are threatened by climate change, Debra Roberts, the Working Group II Co-Chair, said. She said Nepal is considered one of the most vulnerable countries in the world for climate change effects. “The latest landmark study in the Hindu Kush Himalaya region, which covers 3,500 kilometres across Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, India, Myanmar, Nepal and Pakistan, has projected an alarming future for poor and geographically challenged countries like Nepal,” she said. The region which is a critical resource for Asia is undergoing climatic changes which need both special attention and collective response, pointed out David Molden, Director General of the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD).last_img read more

AFN chief urges leaders to ensure passage of key bills for Indigenous

first_imgOTTAWA — Assembly of First Nations National Chief Perry Bellegarde is calling on all party leaders to make sure three pieces of legislation he says are of “fundamental importance” to Indigenous Peoples and the country pass before the election.Bellegarde says in a letter to all the party leaders in Parliament that he believes their help is “absolutely critical” to ensure the passage of the bills.The list includes Bill C-262, a plan to ensure Canadian laws are in harmony with the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, and bills on Indigenous languages and child welfare.Bellegarde says the bills are tied closely to calls to action from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission after it probed the long-standing impacts of Canada’s residential schools.He says reconciliation between Indigenous people and non-Indigenous people is a non-partisan responsibility and he believes “troubling partisan dynamics” are on display in the Senate.Former interim Conservative leader Rona Ambrose used Twitter earlier this week to say she’s been told her own party will block legislation, including her separate bill on mandatory education on sexual assault for judges, to make sure C-262 never passes, calling it a “sad day.”The Canadian Presslast_img read more

US demand on autos for NAFTA Make huge changes immediately

first_imgARLINGTON, Va. – The United States is presenting a quadruple-whammy demand on auto manufacturing at the NAFTA negotiations, including a strict “Made In America” requirement with virtually no grace period to give car companies time to adjust.The proposal is viewed as a non-starter by virtually every party involved in automobile production: Canada, Mexico, U.S. industry and even labour groups were calling the proposal completely unattainable.It’s one of the biggest issues of the talks and it’s sure to provoke a backlash on multiple fronts.The U.S. negotiating team showed industry representatives their proposal to Canada and Mexico and it contained four ideas that would complicate auto production, several sources said Friday.First, it requires all cars to include 85 per cent North American content to avoid a tariff, up from the current 62.5 per cent; 50 per cent of a car’s content would have to come from the U.S.; and it would toughen the way content is calculated, with a list upgraded to include parts that didn’t exist in 1994 when NAFTA was originally implemented.A fourth irritant is the minuscule proposed phase-in period.Automakers would have one year to comply with the American-made quota and two years to comply with the overall North American content requirement under the proposal, which is a radical departure not only in substance but also in the timing of phase-in periods normally included in trade agreements.The demands are deemed so impractical the talk in the hallways at the conference site revolves around which of two objectives the Americans are trying to achieve: Sabotage the talks, or shock other parties into concessions.A Canadian auto-parts representative said he tends toward the latter.“My instinct is this is, ‘Art of the Deal,’” said Flavio Volpe. “There are those who think these are poison pills designed … to get the partners to leave the table.”The proposal came as the U.S. made its first significant move on dairy, a traditional sticking point with Canada. Several insiders said Friday the U.S. has asked Canada to scrap its special classifications benefiting domestic producers for things like diafiltered cheese-making products.The U.S. also wants a veto power over future Canadian classification changes.What’s already proposed would lead to changes in Canada’s supply-management system. The U.S. has not yet made any explicit request for a percentage of Canada’s protected dairy market. But that request could still come at any time.Earlier U.S. demands include a termination clause that would cancel NAFTA after five years, unless all parties agree to extend it, and a Buy American rule that would make it far more difficult for non-U.S. companies to bid for public projects.The auto proposal is so controversial, organizations that are normally rivals are allied against it. Volpe’s Automotive Parts Manufacturers’ Association says it could create a perverse incentive for producers to leave the continent.Their argument is that it’s far easier to ignore the NAFTA rules and simply pay the U.S. 2.5 per cent import tariff: “It’s not good for the Americans,” Volpe said. “It just doesn’t make sense from a business perspective.”The union representing Canadian auto workers agrees.Unifor’s Jerry Dias says the U.S. would never have the power to enforce the proposed changes because companies would just ignore it: “All this argument about 50 per cent, 70 per cent, 85 per cent, it means nothing as long as the U.S. has a 2.5 per cent tariff. It’s like the emperor with no clothes,” Dias said.“They can yell, scream, threaten, then people say, ‘Okay, here — I’ll pay the 2.5 per cent’.”He said it’s a moot point anyway because there’s no chance Canada or Mexico will ever agree to a NAFTA that looks like what the Americans are proposing.“Get it out of your head. That’s never gonna happen,” Dias said. “This is a deal that is going nowhere very quickly.”Scotiabank analysts agree the proposals would hurt their author.Car companies would have an incentive to move production away from the U.S., and Canada, either to Asia or Mexico, and pay a tariff rather than deal with the rules being proposed by the U.S., said its deputy chief economist.“If accepted, the U.S. (proposal) would be a pyrrhic victory,” said Brett House.House called the proposal a poor solution to a non-existent problem. Growth in auto employment since the Great Recession has skyrocketed in the U.S. to six per cent a year and he said North American content is on the rise in cars produced in Canada and Mexico, contrary to figures being floated by U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross.“There’s no problem here to address,” he said.One real problem, however, is stagnant wages: U.S. auto salaries have not seen an appreciable increase for years, according to data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Dias says that’s the problem everyone should be attacking — by increasing labour standards, especially in Mexico.last_img read more

Raped at 11 Why wasnt I told my attacker tried to be

first_img Short URL Raped at 11: ‘Why wasn’t I told my attacker tried to be taken off the Sex Offenders Register?’ Amy Gilligan (28) heard that her attacker was appealing to be removed from the register through word of mouth. Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article 35,765 Views Amy Gilligan AMY GILLIGAN WAS raped when she was just 11 years old.Andrew Cox was 16 years old when he assaulted Gilligan in his bedroom. His mother was babysitting Gilligan at the time.In 2003, two years after the assault, Cox was convicted and sentenced to five years in prison, with two suspended.However, last year Gilligan found out by chance that Cox was appealing to be removed from the Sex Offenders Register.Gilligan had been anonymous in the original court case in 2003, but she has now waived her right to anonymity to raise awareness about victims not being notified when their attackers seek to be removed from the register.The 28-year-old explained that she heard about the appeal through word of mouth in Athlone, where both she and Cox are from.Gilligan contacted Athlone Garda Station when she heard and she was advised to write a letter for the judge. She also decided to attend the hearing on 30 May last year.Gilligan told TheJournal.ie, “I guess I didn’t know what to expect.“The gardaí were unsure as to whether the judge would listen to what I had to say. Thursday 28 Jun 2018, 6:10 AM Share506 Tweet Email By Cliodhna Russell 22 Comments There was a lot of uncertainty around whether I was going to be allowed in the court, whether I was going to be asked to leave or if he [the Judge] would read the letter.“The man’s defence team tried to get me removed from the court because it was held in camera but the Judge decided to let me stay as I wasn’t just any member of the public.The judge decided to keep Andrew Cox’s name on the register. Gilligan said:I guess in a way it was justice being mantained, if they removed him from register it would have been undone.“For me it was very empowering to be able to stand there and do what I did.“It was almost like getting a second chance, for me, to address it and put it to rest.”She added that knowing he was on the register was important to her.It made me feel safe, I knew he was getting out of prison after three years but at least being on that register was always something that made me feel safe. http://jrnl.ie/4094702 ‘Victims getting notified is not a huge ask’Gilligan is now appealing for all victims to be notified in cases were their attacker seeks to be removed from the register.As it stands a convicted sex offender can apply to have their name removed from the Sex Offenders Register after 10 years on the register.The convicted person is required to notify a district superintendent of their intention and the superintendent or other garda can appear and be heard at the hearing.However, there is no formal process for victims to be notified.TheJournal.ie asked the Department of Justice if there are any plans in place to implement a system where victims are notified. In a statement it said:“The Government recently agreed to Minister Flanagan’s proposals for a new Sex Offenders (Amendment) Bill and this will now be drafted. Minister Flanagan has indicated that he is open to proposals to add new provisions in this bill and that he intends to have discussions about the Sex Offenders Register.”Gilligan hopes to speak to the Justice Minister about this in the coming months.“Victims getting notified is not a huge thing to ask,” she said.Speaking about the register, she said, “If you offend against children, you have to be watched.In cases where you have somebody who attacks children, if you have that in you and that’s something you’ve done, you need to be monitored.She added, “If you’re not classed as high risk you only have to check in every few months.”However she pointed out that this is not about her or her attacker: “It’s about the safety of others.  If I speak about it and some sort of change happens then it wasn’t all for nothing.” Amy Gilligan Jun 28th 2018, 6:11 AM last_img read more

Key Reasons Why Crude Oil Prices Plunged to 7month Lows

first_imgGlobal crude oil prices continue to edge lower for the seventh consecutive week, posting its longest weekly losing streak in 29 years. Brent crude oil prices tumbled to just above $46 per barrel on Friday, falling by over 29 percent from the levels seen in the beginning of June.Overall, Brent oil prices have more than halved since June last year, as the prices remain under pressure mainly due to oversupply situation.Here are the reasons that rattling oil markets:No Relief on Supply Glut FrontOversupply issues continue to hit oil markets as the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) refrain from cutting the output to defend their market shares. Further, there is no sign of reduction in oil supply in the US, which has been a main cause for a slump in prices. Recent data showed that oil inventories rose in the country despite a decline in oil rig count.Slowing China EconomyOil prices are also battered, slowing economic growth in the world’s second largest economy, China. A batch of data published earlier this month showed the Chinese economy still remain sluggish despite many stimulus measures taken by the country’s authorities in the past few months. As China is the world’s second largest consumer of oil, any further indication of slowdown in its economic growth may intensify the oil price woes.China’s Yuan DevaluationTo boost its falling exports, China initiated yuan devaluation last week triggering a heavy sell-off in commodity markets including crude oil. As crude oil prices are quoted in US dollars, a yuan devaluation would make crude oil holdings unattractive.Worries on Impending Iranian Oil SupplyCrude oil prices are also weighed down by impending oil supply from Iran, which was barred from doing so due to its nuclear activities. Iranian oil exports are expected to aggravate the oversupply concerns, once the sanctions imposed by the Western countries are lifted.Sell-off in Global Equity MarketsRecent sell-off witnessed in major stock markets globally has also put pressure on crude oil prices. Equity markets in the US, Japan, China and other nations have posted heavy losses in the past few sessions, fuelling the concerns over the growth of the global economy. US stock markets fell to its lowest level this year on Thursday, amid intensifying worries over the country’s economic growth.last_img read more

British Airways has unveiled plans to launch a new

first_imgBritish Airways has unveiled plans to launch a new subsidiary airline called Open Skies, which will begin flying to the United States out of Brussels or Paris from June.The off-shoot borrows its name from the Open Skies deal struck between the European Union and the US – the culmination of nearly three decades of moves by airline groups to open up transatlantic travel. Until now BA has only been allowed to fly to the US directly from UK soil, meaning it and countless other international operators have been banned from running service on numerous key international routes.Commenting on the launch of Open Skies, BA chief executive Willie Walsh said: “This is an exciting new venture for us and we’re confident that it will be a great success as we build on the strength of BA’s brand in the US and Europe.”The Open Skies agreement aims to scrap domestic monopolies at major international hub – with London Heathrow, for example, no longer granting exclusive rights to BA, Virgin, United Airlines, and American Airlines.ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map RelatedBA launches new Amsterdam to NY routeBA launches new Amsterdam to NY routeOpenSkies gains US approvalOpenSkies gains US approvalBritish Airways and Iberia merger approved by ECBritish Airways and Iberia merger approved by EClast_img read more
