Mary Robinson Says Climate Change Is A Human Rights Issue

first_imgIn a TED talk earlier this year, former President of Ireland, Mary Robinson, outlined for the audience how she sees that climate change is actually a human rights issue, something she had not connected when she began as UN High Commissioner of Human Rights in 1997.When travelling in Africa, however, she kept seeing how climate change was stymieing villagers’ ability to grow food properly and prepare for their future. She cites Uganda’s long periods of drought, followed by flash flooding and then drought again, destroying harvests, livelihoods and infrastructure. She also cited Malawi, which suffered from unprecedented flooding in January 2015, which killed 300 people and lost livelihoods for hundreds of thousands.Robinson says that while the average Malawian emits about 80kg of C02 per year, the average American emits 17.5 metric tonnes. Ironically, people not contributing to global warming are suffering the consequences of it.Although it is generally agreed that we need to stay below two degrees Celsius of warming of pre-industrial standards, Robinson’s concern is that we’re on course for about four degrees. “We have to go to zero carbon emissions by about 2050,” she says, “if we’re going to stay below two degrees Celsius of warming. And that means we have to leave about two-thirds of the known resources of fossil fuels in the ground.”Although she sees great progress to cut emissions here and there, it is not enough, and she’d like to see better cooperation. “The reality is that this issue is much too important to be left to politicians and to the United Nations,” she says. “We face an existential threat to the future of our planet. And that made me realize that climate change is the greatest threat to human rights in the 21st century.”Copyright ©2015Look to the Starslast_img read more

No guaranteed prison time for Wilmington Trust defendants

first_imgDOVER, Del. — There’s no guarantee that four former executives of the only financial institution to be criminally charged in connection with the federal bank bailout program will be sentenced to prison for fraud.But even if a judge orders prison time for the former Wilmington Trust officials later this month, they won’t be led away in handcuffs.In a court filing Thursday, prosecutors say they won’t oppose the defendants’ requests to be allowed at least two months, possibly more, to “self-surrender” to prison.The defendants also are asking that any prison sentences be put on hold until their appeals are resolved, a process that could take a year or more.The defendants were convicted in May of misleading regulators and investors about the bank’s massive amount of past-due commercial real estate loans.Randall Chase, The Associated Presslast_img read more

AAP hits out at Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri for his antiDelhi

first_imgNew Delhi: Hitting out at Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri for his “anti-Delhi” policies, the Aam Aadmi Party Wednesday said a person who has nothing worthwhile to show in his performance as a minister is now venturing into the arena of electoral political analysis. Challenging Puri for an open debate, the AAP said it we will expose the “real face” of BJP and the Union Minister as well as question his anti-Delhi policies in the next seven days. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murder The comments by the AAP comes a day after Puri reportedly slammed Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for becoming “desperate” for an alliance. AAP chief spokesperson Saurabh Bharadwaj said Puri need not worry about the Aam Aadmi Party, but rather tell the people of Delhi about his “anti-Delhi approach”. “For next seven days, we will expose the real face of BJP and Mr Puri and question his anti-Delhi policies. We challenge him for a open debate. New political wisdom has dawned on BJP’s Rajya Sabha MP from Uttar Pradesh Hardeep Singh Puri, who was made a minister of state in the Narendra Modi government, 18 months back. Also Read – Two brothers held for snatchings “Puri, who has nothing worthwhile to show in his performance as a minister, is now venturing into the new arena of electoral political analysis,” Bharadwaj said in a statement. Bharadwaj said it is beyond “any reasonable understanding in which capacity Puri is giving his expert comments on the political situation of Delhi, and why is he so worried about the AAP?” The AAP also asked Puri why did the BJP central government’s nominees on the Delhi Metro Board support the “unjustified” Metro fare hike? “What were the instructions of your ministry to the central government nominees on the Metro Board about the Metro fare hike? Why has the Narendra Modi government stalled approval to three routes of Delhi Metro Phase-IV?” he said.last_img read more

At the whim of a powerful nation

first_imgWhen US President Donald Trump tweeted their full recognition of Israel’s sovereignty over Golan Heights, “a current of surprise and expectation sizzled through the state department press corps”, as a BBC correspondent on a Jerusalem tour following US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo put it. It is said that the welcome surprise to Netanyahu was more in the timing than in substance. The intention that came to highlight through the tweet had been under consideration for quite some time, only the Israelis now pushed it with greater vigour. Of critical security and strategic importance, the Golan Heights is pivotal to stability in the region. For decades, most of the world (and previous US establishments) have rejected Israel’s occupation of the Golan Heights which was seized from Syria in the 1967 Arab-Israeli war. According to the UN charter, essentially, you can’t keep land that you capture, you have to negotiate its fate. Trump’s tweeted announcement has overturned this convention. This very grave move has implications that go beyond the bilateral dynamics of USA and Israel. Endorsing capture of a territory is potentially setting a dangerous trend to exercise military arbitration by a more powerful state. The regions that promptly come to mind at this are: on the global stage, Russia’s annexation of Crimea; in the Asian context, Tibet; and regarding India, PoK, given that Pakistan was USA’s baby not too long ago. Trump’s special mention of strategic and security reasons point out only too clearly to Iran, coming in the wake of the understanding that Iran is using Syria as a base to target Israel and the Golan Heights being the front line. Also, given that Israel already has a tight grip on the region militarily, the articulation of the status and a formal declaration of it make little difference on the ground. Hence, the next most obvious reason for this move has to be the election in Israel due on April 9, and something to count for Netanyahu, who will be making a visit to White House in the coming week. The situation is such that Israel strikes routinely at Iranian targets in Syria, carefully negotiating the situation with Russia, which provides crucial military backing to the Syrian state, a delicate balance indeed. With a civil war-wrecked Syria and a US sanctions-crippled Iran, Israel is in a position to assert claims over the region additionally with the support from White House. This is clearly a mechanism to violate territorial integrity and institutionalise regional instability. European leaders have not taken very kindly to this bilateral bonhomie at the cost of a suffering region. And rightly so. If recognition was so easy to give away, such arbitration raises very pertinent questions about Tibet, Kashmir, and Crimea. All it takes is the whim of a powerful nation.last_img read more
