- Thu Oct 17, 2019 - Exxon and oil sands go on trial in New York climate fraud case
In late 2013, ExxonMobil faced increasing pressure from investors to disclose more about the risks the company faced as governments began limiting greenhouse gas emissions. Of the many costs climate change will impose, oil companies face a particularly acute one: the demand for their product will have to shrink.
For years, Exxon had been using something called a proxy cost of carbon to estimate what stricter climate policies might mean for its bottom line. But as pressure from shareholders grew, a problem came sharply into focus: An internal presentation warned top executives that the way the company had been applying this proxy cost was potentially misleading. That's because Exxon didn't have one projected cost of carbon. It had two.
The contents of that presentation are at the heart of a trial set to start next week in a civil case brought against the company by the New York attorney general. Exxon is accused of disclosing one set of these projected carbon costs to investors wh
- Thu Oct 17, 2019 - Archaeologists discover more than 20 sealed coffins just as the ancient Egyptians left them
The Egyptian government is hailing the discovery of more than 20 wooden coffins as \'one of the largest and most important\' archaeological finds in the past few years.
The coffins were found in Assasif, a necropolis on the west bank of the Nile River.
Egypt's Ministry of Antiquities tweeted images of the \'intact and sealed coffins\' Tuesday. The sarcophagi, which were stacked in two layers in a large tomb, still boasted their original carvings of faces and hands and colors of red, green, white and black that have not faded much over time.
The Antiquities Ministry tweeted images of the coffins on Tuesday.
Egyptian officials have not given the time frame from which the coffins date, but the site where they were found was once part of the ancient city of Thebes.
Thebes was the royal capital of the ancient Egypt. Early monuments can be traced as far back as the 11th dynasty, which occurred between 2081 and 1939 B.C.
Authorities said more details about the coffins would be d
- Thu Oct 17, 2019 - New Brexit deal has been reached, E.U. and U.K. leaders say
European and British negotiators struck a deal Thursday on the terms of a Brexit withdrawal, raising the prospect that Britain could be out of the European Union by the end of the month.
European leaders meeting in Brussels gave the agreement a preliminary nod. The action now largely shifts back to London, where Prime Minister Boris Johnson will face the more significant challenge of getting parliamentary approval on Saturday.
\'This deal represents a very good deal both for the E.U. and the U.K.,\' Johnson said in Brussels. He pressed British lawmakers to \'come together to get Brexit done, to get this excellent deal over the line, and to deliver Brexit without any more delay.\'
To scare the House of Commons into submission, and to fulfill a political pledge, Johnson wants his fellow leaders in Brussels to rule out any further delays beyond the Oct. 31 Brexit deadline. European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker was willing to grant that, with this deal in hand, \'there's no
- Thu Oct 17, 2019 - Day 1,000 of the Trump presidency: A troop withdrawal, an impeachment inquiry and 'a lot of sand'
Wednesday was the 1,000th day of Donald Trump's presidency. He spent it the usual way, by saying unusual things.
\'It's a lot of sand,\' Trump said.
He was sitting in the Oval Office next to the president of Italy, and referring to the battleground between the Turkish military and Syrian Kurds.
\'They've got a lot of sand over there. So there's a lot of sand they can play with.\'
A thousand days.
\'Thank you for the very interesting remarks you just made,\' the Italian president, Sergio Mattarella, said through his interpreter.
\'I have so many Italian friends,\' Trump said to Mattarella. \'I can't tell you how many Italian friends.\'
Rudy Giuliani's name was all over the news Wednesday, for privately exerting influence on U.S. policy toward Turkey and Ukraine. A business associate of Giuliani's was arrested Wednesday for allegedly taking part in a campaign-finance scheme. It was the fourth such arrest of a Giuliani associate in the past week.
Giuliani, for his part, beli
- Wed Oct 16, 2019 - Higher temperatures driving 'alarming' levels of hunger
The climate crisis is driving alarming levels of hunger in the world, undermining food security in the world's most vulnerable regions, according to this year's global hunger index.
The annual report, a ranking of 117 countries measuring hunger rates and trends, shows progress since 2000, but warns that the world still has a long way to go to reach the zero hunger target agreed by world leaders by 2030.
The report is published as a series of committee on world food security meetings take place in Rome in the run-up to World Food Day on 16 October. The findings show levels of hunger are \'serious\' or \'alarming\' in 47 countries, and \'extremely alarming\' in one: the Central African Republic.
Rates are categorized as \'alarming\' in Chad, Madagascar, Yemen and Zambia. Nine countries have worse scores today than in 2010 -- the Central African Republic, Madagascar, Venezuela, Yemen, Jordan, Malaysia, Mauritania, Lebanon and Oman.
Data is lacking for several countries -- Burundi, Com
- Wed Oct 16, 2019 - Greenland's melting ice may affect everyone's future
A thousand feet above the glistening, iceberg-dotted water of the ocean off of East Greenland, oceanographer Josh Willis braces for balance, his feet spread wide on the metal floor of a specially-outfitted airplane. He grips a wide grey cylinder, hovering it over a 6-inch-wide bottomless tube.
The pilot's voice crackles over the intercom: \'3, 2, 1, zero, DROP.\'
Willis lets the cylinder go. With a whoosh, it slips down the tube and into the wide-open air.
The plane banks hard to the right and everyone on board rushes to a window. \'I see it!\' yells Ian Fenty, another oceanographer on the project, as the probe---designed to sink to the seafloor and record the properties there---splashes down.
Willis, Fenty, and a crew of other scientists and pilots are flying the edge of Greenland's vast ice sheet to figure out how the ocean eats away at the ice, speeding or slowing its slide into the water, where it melts, raising sea levels worldwide.
But exactly how much ice it will depo
- Wed Oct 16, 2019 - Using old cellphones to listen for illegal loggers
PAKAN RABAA, Indonesia --- This village in West Sumatra, a lush province of volcanoes and hilly rain forests, had a problem with illegal loggers.
They were stealing valuable hardwood with impunity. At first, a group of local people put a fence across the main road leading into the forest, but it was flimsy and proved no match for the interlopers.
So, residents asked a local environmental group for camera traps or some other equipment that might help. In July, they got more than they expected: A treetop surveillance system that uses recycled cellphones and artificial intelligence software to listen for rogue loggers and catch them in the act.
\'A lot of people are now afraid to take things from the forest,\' Elvita Surianti, who lives in Pakan Rabaa, said days after a conservation technologist from San Francisco installed a dozen listening units by hoisting himself nearly 200 feet into the treetops. \'It's like the police are watching from above.\'
The project, experts said in i
- Wed Oct 16, 2019 - Urban humans
Driverless transport, underground shops, heated bike paths, armed street patrols -- this is not the setting for a dystopian novel but it could soon be the city where you live.
As the world sees the biggest wave of urban growth in history -- with almost 70% of its population expected to be living in urban areas by 2050, up from 56% today -- the task of making cities greener and safer is becoming more urgent.
That cities are attracting more people is nothing new, noted urban specialist Philipp Rode, who runs London-based research centre LSE Cities.
\'People move to cities to live and work because they're a solution: they significantly reduce the amount of movement and space required to do anything,\' he told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.
\'But the absolute increase in population, the millions coming into cities - that's unprecedented,\' he added.
The shift is creating significant challenges for many cities already at risk from worsening climate change and rising inequality,
- Tue Oct 15, 2019 - The revenge of John Bolton?
Former White House Russia expert Fiona Hill testified Monday that John Bolton likened Rudolph W. Giuliani to a \'hand grenade.\' Giuliani responded overnight by likening Bolton to an \'atomic bomb.\'
Giuliani may be right --- just perhaps not in the way he intended.
As evidence builds in House Democrats' impeachment inquiry, signs keep pointing to Bolton, who has not yet been scheduled to testify. But in Bolton, House Democrats have a potential witness with a trifecta of utility: (1) Proximity to the alleged scandal, (2) motivation to tell his story and, perhaps as important as anything, (3) a true-believer mentality.
Hill testified Monday that Bolton was \'furious\' over Trump aides' Ukraine maneuvering, and she indicated that he was one of the people involved in national security officials lodging their concerns with a White House lawyer.
Bolton and European Union Ambassador Gordon Sondland met in early July with then-special envoy for Ukraine Kurt Volker, Hill and Energy Secre
- Tue Oct 15, 2019 - President Trump has made 13,435 false or misleading claims over 993 days
As President Trump approaches his 1,000th day in office Wednesday, he has significantly stepped up his pace of spouting exaggerated numbers, unwarranted boasts and outright falsehoods.
As of Oct. 9, his 993rd day in office, he had made 13,435 false or misleading claims, according to the Fact Checker's database that analyzes, categorizes and tracks every suspect statement he has uttered. That's an average of almost 22 claims a day since our last update 65 days ago.
One big reason for the uptick: The uproar over Trump's phone call with Ukraine's president on July 25 --- in which he urged an investigation of former vice president Joe Biden, a potential 2020 election rival --- and the ensuing House impeachment inquiry. We've added a new category of claims, Ukraine probe, and in just a few weeks it has topped 250 entries.
In fact, Trump earned his fastest Bottomless Pinocchio ever with his repeated false statement that the whistleblower compliant about the call was inaccurate. The
