The US is back in the Paris Agreement. What’s next?

On his first day as president, Joe Biden signed a letter of acceptance that set in motion the 30-day process for the United States to re-join the Paris Agreement on climate. On the day the US returns to the accord, John Kerry, the US Special Envoy for Climate, sits down with Nobel Laureate Al Gore to discuss the make-or-break decade ahead of us. Listen as Kerry lays out how the US fits into the global plan to get to net-zero emissions, explains why the COP26 UN climate conference could be humanity’s “last best hope” to build international momentum and explores the role of business and youth activists in promoting environmental justice. (This interview features an introduction from Christiana Figueres, the principal architect of the Paris Agreement.)

Christiana Figueres

“This decade is a moment of choice unlike any we have ever lived,” says Christiana Figueres, the architect of the historic 2015 Paris Agreement. The daughter of Costa Rica’s beloved President José Figueres Ferrer, she shares how her father’s unwillingness to lose the country he loved taught her how stubborn optimism can catalyze action and change. With an unshakeable determination to fight for the generations that will come after us, Figueres describes what stubborn optimism is (and isn’t) — and urges everyone to envision and work for the future they want for humanity.

Why has there been so little mention of saving Black lives from the climate emergency? For too long, racial justice efforts have been distinguished from climate justice work, says David Lammy, Member of Parliament for Tottenham, England. In a stirring talk about building a new movement to care for the planet, Lammy calls for inclusion and support of Black and minority leadership on climate issues and a global recognition that we can’t solve climate change without racial, social and intergenerational justice.

For the poor and vulnerable, the health impacts of climate change are already here, says physician Cheryl Holder. Unseasonably hot temperatures, disease-carrying mosquitoes and climate gentrification threaten those with existing health conditions, while wealthier people move to higher ground. In an impassioned talk, Holder proposes impactful ways clinicians can protect their patients from climate-related health challenges — and calls on doctors, politicians and others to build a care system that incorporates economic and social justice.

“I dream of a world where geography classes teach about the climate crisis as this one great challenge that was won by people like you and me,” says climate activist Luisa Neubauer. With Greta Thunberg, Neubauer helped initiate “Fridays For Future,” the momentous international school strike movement that protests the lack of action on the climate crisis. She shares four first steps that anyone, regardless of age, can take to become a climate activist. “This is not a job for a single generation. This is a job for humanity,” she says.

“If we don’t act now on climate change, this coming century may be one of humanity’s last,” says António Guterres, Secretary-General of the United Nations. As the world recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic, Guterres urges us to use this moment to rebuild with ambitious climate action in mind — and lays out a blueprint for getting companies, governments and countries to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. “We can only win the race to zero together,” he says. “I urge you all to get on board.”

“For the first time, we are forced to consider the real risk of destabilizing the entire planet,” says climate impact scholar Johan Rockström. In a talk backed by vivid animations of the climate crisis, he shows how nine out of the 15 big biophysical systems that regulate the climate — from the permafrost of Siberia to the great forests of the North to the Amazon rainforest — are at risk of reaching tipping points, which could make Earth uninhabitable for humanity. Hear his plan for putting the planet back on the path of sustainability over the next 10 years — and protecting the future of our children.

GET THE FACTS—TRUMP TRIES TO DELEGITIMIZE VOTE-COUNTING: NowThis is tracking the latest 2020 news & forecasts. Pres. Trump and his allies have argued for weeks that votes tallied after election night shouldn’t count. ‘The Election should end on November 3rd, not weeks later!’ Trump tweeted. GOP officials say they may legally challenge votes not counted on Election Day. But no laws back up Trump’s claims. Here are the facts: 1) Ballots are legally counted after Election Day in all 50 states 2) No state reports final results or certifies the winner on Election Day 3) In 29 states, military ballots can be received after Election Day, and in 18 states, ballots that arrive after Election Day are counted, per state law 4) Absentee & mail ballots take longer to count, with several processes done by hand; that doesn’t mean late results are flawed or fraudulent 5) People voting by mail are disproportionately Democrats, so neither in-person ballots nor mail ballots reflect the full vote count » Subscribe to NowThis: http://go.nowth.is/News_Subscribe » Sign up for our newsletter KnowThis to get the biggest stories of the day delivered straight to your inbox: https://go.nowth.is/KnowThis #Election #Politics #Trump #Biden #News #NowThis #NowThisNews

Why Europe is praying for Trump to lose the US election | DW Analysis

Oct 30, 2020  DW News

Almost four years of Donald Trump have left America’s European allies in a state of shock. He’s walked out of important treaties. He’s lashed out against America’s friends. He has cozied up to authoritarians. He’s abandoned the most important international treaties of our time. And he has even threatened NATO — the bedrock of America’s global power. It’s diplomatic disruption on an unprecedented scale. But even for America’s shell-shocked allies, it may not be all bad. So just how much has Trump disrupted transatlantic relations? DW’s Chief International Editor Richard Walker explains why Europe is praying for a Joe Biden win in the 2020 US election.

Consider the following scenario: a highly infectious, sometimes deadly respiratory virus infects humans for the first time. It spreads rapidly worldwide, and the WHO declares a pandemic. The death toll starts to rise and everyone is asking the same question: when will the pandemic end? Alex Rosenthal details the three main strategies governments can use to contain and end a pandemic. [Directed by Visorama, narrated by Jack Cutmore-Scott, music by Bamm Bamm Wolfgang].

MEET THE EDUCATOR

Alex Rosenthal · Producer

Alex Rosenthal takes everyday experiences and turns them into mind-bending puzzles.

Viruses mutate and spread from person to person, a dynamic process that often leaves us playing catch-up when there’s a new disease outbreak. What if vaccines worked the same way? Virologist Leor Weinberger shares a scientific breakthrough: “hijacker therapy,” a type of medical treatment that could attack, modify and spread alongside a virus, potentially treating afflicted individuals and slowing the spread of infections like HIV.

Bored Panda: People On Twitter Explain How American Voting Works And People From Other Countries Can’t Believe It

 Robertas Lisickis   BoredPanda staff   3 DAYS AGO

Voting is done differently around the world. There are different systems of voting whereby either the popular vote wins or voters decide on reps who decide on the winner and whatnot.

But then there’s also the process of voting—where do people go, how do they cast their vote, and, most importantly, how long will it take. Well, the last one, turns out, is in HUGE contrast when it comes to the US and the rest of the world.

Apparently, Americans spend countless hours queuing and waiting for their turn to enter the voting booth and to cast their vote, whereas the rest of the world spends around as much time voting as one would spend waiting for the barista to make and deliver their coffee at Starbucks.

The internet is left surprised with how long Americans have to wait in line just so that they could vote

So, since it’s voting season in the US, a lot of Americans are sharing their considerably extreme voting experiences on Twitter. And then there’s Europeans and everyone else sharing their complete opposite experiences.

Turns out, people in the US often stand in line for hours, and I do mean literally hours

A number of US citizens shared how they stood in line for two hours at the very least to a whopping eleven hours just so that they could vote. Talk about dedication to your country!

While some stand in line for about 2 hours, Johnta Austin had to do so for a whopping 11 hours!

Here’s what a typical voting line looks like as shown by one Twitter user

And it doesn’t matter what weather it is either—people are committed

This prompted a response from people from other countries around the world: Canada, France, Germany, Spain, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, and others. It turned out, the amount of time citizens of these countries spent partaking in the voting process was around three minutes. At worst, it was fifteen minutes. See the stark contrast here?

More specifically, in Sweden, it was three minutes because there was a senior in a wheelchair in the queue; in France, hardly no waiting time and no more than 10-people queues; in Canada, no more than two minutes; in Australia, where voting is mandatory, no more than three minutes. The list goes on and on.

It wasn’t long until someone asked the question—how long does voting take outside of the US?

Many internauts from Europe, Australia, Canada, Mexico and other places  responded with the opposite of what US voters experience

So, why are Americans practically breaking records with their queuing to vote? The short answer seems to be the lack of resources (polling locations, voting station employees, etc.) to deal with the huge demand.

The longer answer, though, is “it’s complicated.” Besides the fact that too many people show up and there aren’t enough polling stations and people managing them, there’s also the long voting process within the ballots, technical problems, lack of polling station staff training, underfunding of election administrations, and a number of other small problems that make up one huge issue.

For the most part, the average voter outside the US spends around 2–3 minutes and no more than 20 voting

Though, interesting to think, but some say that the long lines aren’t all that bad. It is said to be a celebration by those who endure them—it is a sign of patriotic enthusiasm. Others do think it’s more a form of sadism rather than a celebration, but nobody’s judging if it works for people.
