- Thu Sep 21, 2017 - Theresa May speaks out against Trump climate change stance at UN
Theresa May has issued a veiled warning to Donald Trump, arguing that his plan to withdraw from the Paris climate change treaty ranks alongside North Korea's nuclear missile tests as a threat to global prosperity and security.
In a speech to the United Nations general assembly, the prime minister, whose authority at home has been severely tested since June's general election result, sought to project her vision of a \'rules-based\' international order.
She said global cooperation was the only way to confront shared international challenges, including terrorism, climate change, and mass movements of refugees -- and condemned countries that fail to play by the rules.
The prime minister did not name the US president directly but made clear that she believed ongoing membership of the Paris climate change accord was as important as the nuclear non-proliferation treaty in maintaining global security.
\'As the global system struggles to adapt, we are confronted by states deliberately

San Francisco and Oakland sued five major oil companies in the state courts on Wednesday in the latest attempts to hold fossil fuel producers accountable for the effects of climate change.
The parallel lawsuits call for the companies to pay what could become billions of dollars into a fund for the coastal infrastructure necessary to protect property and neighborhoods against sea level rise in the sister cities, which face each other across San Francisco Bay.
The moves follow similar lawsuits filed against 37 fossil fuel companies earlier this summer by three other coastal California communities at risk from sea level rise.
The flurry of litigation relies on the theory that the biggest and richest oil companies in the world should somehow be forced to pay the price for the damages that are becoming steadily more apparent from climate change, which the industry's critics say can be directly linked to the emissions that come from burning their products.
In the latest lawsuits,
- Thu Sep 21, 2017 - The world is running out of antibiotics, WHO says
Too few new antibiotics are under development to combat the threat of multidrug-resistant infections, according to a new World Health Organization report published Tuesday. Adding to the concern: It is likely that the speed of increasing resistance will outpace the slow drug development process.
As of May, a total of 51 antibiotics and 11 biologicals -- medical products often made from natural sources -- are being developed, the new report said.
\'The idea is that biologicals could replace use of antibiotics, which could help in overcoming the resistance problem,\' Peter Beyer, an author of the report and senior adviser to the WHO's Department of Essential Medicines and Health Products, wrote in an email.
Seemingly, this large number of potential new drugs should suffice, yet it is not nearly enough.
First, just 33 of the antibiotics in the pipeline target priority pathogens. This year, the WHO published a list of a dozen \'priority pathogens\': 12 separate families of antibiot
- Thu Sep 21, 2017 - Trump hires campaign workers instead of farm experts at USDA
President Donald Trump's appointees to jobs at Agriculture Department headquarters include a long-haul truck driver, a country club cabana attendant and the owner of a scented-candle company.
A POLITICO review of dozens of résumés from political appointees to USDA shows the agency has been stocked with Trump campaign staff and volunteers who in many cases demonstrated little to no experience with federal policy, let alone deep roots in agriculture. But of the 42 résumés POLITICO reviewed, 22 cited Trump campaign experience. And based on their résumés, some of those appointees appear to lack credentials, such as a college degree, required to qualify for higher government salaries.
It's typical for presidents to reward loyalists with jobs once a campaign is over. But what's different under Trump, sources familiar with the department's inner workings say, is the number of campaign staffers who have gotten positions and the jobs and salaries they have been hired for, despite not havi
- Wed Sep 20, 2017 - 10 Giant Companies Commit to Electric Vehicles, Sending Auto Industry a Message
A coalition of global corporations, including Unilever, Ikea and shipping giant DHL, launched a global campaign today to accelerate the shift to electric vehicles and away from gas- and diesel-powered transportation---which generates almost a quarter of energy-related greenhouse gas emissions worldwide and has been the fastest growing emissions source.
Since more than half of the cars on the road belong to companies, the new EV100 coalition could have a major impact. It aims to do for EVs and electric car charging infrastructure what coalitions such as the RE100 are already doing to encourage corporate purchasing of clean energy (and thus motivating development of new solar and wind power).
EV100's goal is to send a signal to automakers that there is mass demand for electric vehicles before 2030, when current forecasts suggest global uptake will start to really ramp up.
\'We want to make electric transport the normal,\' said Helen Clarkson, CEO for The Climate Group, the interna
- Wed Sep 20, 2017 - Japanese people live longer than the rest of us -- so what's their secret?
It's the age old question (pun intended), and one that has given rise to an anti-ageing industry that is estimated to grow to $216.52 billion by 2021: how can we, mere mortals that we are, live longer?
According to recent studies, the answer could well lie in Japan. The Japanese top the global table for life expectancy: on average, they can expect to live for 83.7 years (the UK comes 20th, with an average of 81.2 years).
And this week, they hit another milestone, as it was revealed that the number of Japanese people aged 90 or over has hit the two million mark for the first time.
So, what is it that they're putting in the water in Japan? Have they found a mainstream supply to the fountain of youth?
More realistically, the Japanese seem to have their finger on the pulse when it comes to lifestyle. Their diet is lean and balanced, consisting mainly of fish, seafood, whole grains, vegetables and tofu. The processed Western foods that science is now linking to an array of healt
- Wed Sep 20, 2017 - THERE COULD SOON BE A CURE FOR A FLESH-EATING BACTERIA THAT ALMOST KILLED A MAN IN TEXAS
A Texas man survived a flesh-eating infection he contracted from Hurricane Harvey's floodwaters after intensive treatment at a Houston hospital.
Many victims of such bacterial illnesses suffer a worse fate. But improved therapies and vaccines might be on the way, if scientists can use some new findings from that same hospital on how some bacteria that cause these infections work.
On August 29, J.R. Atkins kayaked through floodwaters left by Hurricane Harvey to check on his neighbors. When he woke up on Wednesday, he noticed that the swelling he'd seen the day before had begun to spread down his arm. He documented his experience, from an urgent care clinic to the ICU of Houston Methodist's Sugar Land facility, on Facebook.
Flesh-eating infections, also called necrotizing fasciitis, are extremely serious and can be deadly without proper treatment, according to the CDC.
Atkins said he received \'massive amounts of antibiotics\' over the course of his hospital stay. Doctors also

One person dies every three hours from pollution in Colombia's second biggest city Medellin, according to a study from a leading university in the city, reported Semana magazine.
The situation in Medellin, which lies in the Valley of Aburra has reached crisis point with the study from National School of Public Health at the University of Antioquia showing that the lung cancer mortality rate is 3.4 times that of Bogota and 2.7 times that of Colombia.
The figures owe their origin to an analysis of death certificates associated with chronic respiratory diseases, lung cancer and strokes recorded at Colombia's National Department of Statistics (DANE) between 1980 and 2012.
The statistics showed that of the nearly 15,000 deaths recorded in the last year of the report, at least 3,000 were reported to be as a result of these factors, a fact that shocked Professor Elkin Martinez, a researcher at the University of Antioquia.
\'That's ten times more than deaths that cause traffic accid

A northern Japanese city's efforts to rebuild its electric power system after the 2011 earthquake and tsunami mark a quiet shift away from the country's old utility model toward self-reliant, local generation and transmission.
After losing three-quarters of its homes and 1,100 people in the March 2011 temblor and tsunami, the city of Higashi Matsushima turned to the Japanese government's \'National Resilience Program,\' with 3.72 trillion yen ($33.32 billion) in funding for this fiscal year, to rebuild.
The city of 40,000 chose to construct micro-grids and de-centralized renewable power generation to create a self-sustaining system capable of producing an average of 25 percent of its electricity without the need of the region's local power utility.
The city's steps illustrate a massive yet little known effort to take dozens of Japan's towns and communities off the power grid and make them partly self-sufficient in generating electricity.

Turning the planet's environmental fortunes around is achievable if businesses, politicians and citizens work towards a common goal, with the biggest polluters picking up the bill, said the United Nations' environment chief.
Highlighting the dramatic progress made by China and India, Erik Solheim, executive director of UN Environment, urged governments to take a joined-up approach to going green.
\'The profit of destroying nature or polluting the planet is nearly always privatized, while the costs of polluting the planet or the cost of destroying ecosystems is nearly always socialized,\' he told an international conference on sustainable development at New York's Columbia University on Monday.
\'That cannot continue,\' he said. \'Anyone who pollutes, anyone who destroys nature must pay the cost for that destruction or that pollution.\'
There has been a \'decoupling\' of economic development and environmental degradation in many countries, but the World Health Organization now links
