Climate change is an “emergency” – EU Ambassador

first_imgThe overall warming of the earth’s atmosphere and oceans due to climate change should be acknowledged by all humans, since they are the main contributors to this global disaster. At a recent climate change forum, European Union Ambassador to Guyana, Fernando Ponz Canto shared this position as he regarded the trend as an emergency. Climate change can be defined as a change in global or regional climate patterns, attributed largely to the increased levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide produced by the use of fossil fuels. “We are talking about climate change but actually we shouldn’t be talking about climate change. We should be talking about a climate emergency. I think this reflects very much, the situation. It is an emergency and it has been treated as such,” he stated. Given that human activities are primarily responsible for this increased warming, the Ambassador indicated that awareness should be spread on how to combat this global issue and the rate of pollution. “We are the first climate- related donor in the world. This is reflecting our commitment and our awareness, perhaps because we are also responsible for that. We are one of the main, responsible for climate change. We have polluted a lot and we are still polluting. If there is something positive about that, it’s that this has made us aware of the need to tackle this problem.” In recent years, the EU has strongly supported the fight against climate change, with a plan of reducing emissions by 20 per cent. However, it is a difficult undertaking. “We are committed to a very ambitious per cent of reductions, in terms of emissions but also increasing sustainable energy. We are committed to moving from fossil fuel energies to sustainable, renewable energies that will not contribute to climate change. This is very difficult but we’re happy to do it,” Ponz Canto highlighted. Research has shown that oceans have warmed, the amounts of snow and ice have diminished and the sea level has risen. From 1901 to 2010, the global average sea level rose by 19 centimetres as oceans expanded due to warming and ice melting. In 2009, the former Administration had launched its Low Carbon Development Strategy (LCDS), which aimed at turning Guyana into a state of low carbon emission and sustainable development, while simultaneously combating climate change. The coalition Administration then introduced the Green State Development Strategy, largely based on the LCDS initiated by the former Government. It is a framework that is supposed to incorporate economic development programmes with strategies to promote the fight against global warming. However, many elements of the new framework have been labelled as flawed.last_img read more

Chelsea not in crisis, says Giroud

first_imgConte’s side were flattered by the scoreline at the Etihad Stadium. After starting without a recognised striker, the visitors failed to muster a single shot on target and commanded only 29 per cent possession.“I don’t even question myself about that — it is not a crisis,” said Giroud, who joined the club from Arsenal in January.“We have played (Manchester) United and City away. Obviously we could have done better but these are not small games.“We are not happy with that (but) it is not the day and the moment to question whether we are behind the boss or not. Obviously we are behind him and we are all sticking together.”Chelsea are in grave danger of missing out on Champions League football for a second time in three seasons.They remain alive in this season’s competition but must find a way past Barcelona at the Nou Camp next week to reach the quarter-finals.“It is not a good weekend for us because our opponents in the Champions League race won,” said Giroud, who came on as a second-half substitute against City.“But we still have nine games to go. We will believe until the end and keep the faith in our game.“Some top teams will play against each other — you never know. We need to keep the focus on this and win the next game and go step by step. We need momentum to reach fourth place.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Olivier Giroud has started just two games since joining Chelsea from London rivals Arsenal in January © AFP/File / Adrian DENNISLONDON, United Kingdom, Mar 5 – Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has played down talk of a crisis at the club after the reigning Premier League champions slumped to their fourth defeat in five league matches against Manchester City.Sunday’s 1-0 defeat, courtesy of a Bernardo Silva goal, left Antonio Conte’s side five points behind fourth-placed Tottenham with nine games to play, heaping further pressure on a manager whose long-term future was already uncertain.last_img read more

Man United are BACK! Stunning Memphis Depay deal reminiscent of Fergie days, talkSPORT told

first_imgManchester United have sent out a statement of intent with their signing of Memphis Depay, talkSPORT have been told.United have moved swiftly to fight off interest from Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain to land the PSV Eindhoven starlet in a £25million deal.Executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has faced criticism in the past for supposedly failing to move quickly enough to wrap up signings, and Guardian journalist Jamie Jackson claims the Depay deal proves the Premier League giants are back to being a major – and feared – force in the transfer market.Speaking on the Hawksbee and Jacobs show, Jackson said: “This sort of shows really how United are getting back to how they were under [Sir Alex] Ferguson – doing their business quick and early.“Ed Woodward has had a year or so to settle into the transfer business and he has got a manager there now who is decisive. David Moyes maybe wasn’t the most decisive manager.“I think if you are a United fan and United watcher you have to be impressed with this.”last_img read more

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2Hours earlier, a car packed with explosives blew up at a dealership in the largely Shiite city of Hillah, about 60 miles south of Baghdad, killing at least 12 people and wounding 32, Capt. Muthana Khalid said. A bomb hidden in a plastic bag also detonated outside a bakery in a religiously mixed neighborhood in eastern Baghdad, killing at least nine people and injuring 10, police Lt. Col. Falah al-Mohammedawi said. Separately, mortar rounds fired by remote control from a car hit the third floor of the heavily guarded Interior Ministry and a nearby park, killing two government employees and wounding three other people. A day earlier, 40 people were killed in various attacks, including a car bombing in Baghdad that killed two CBS News crewmen and seriously wounded network correspondent Kimberly Dozier. BAGHDAD, Iraq – Car bombs targeting Shiite areas devastated a bustling outdoor market and an auto dealership Tuesday, part of a relentless onslaught that killed 54 people and prompted the United States to deploy more troops to combat insurgents in western Iraq. The bombs also wounded 120 people, officials said. The death toll made Tuesday one of the bloodiest days in Iraq this month, and lawmakers still had not agreed on who should lead the nation’s army and police forces. Authorities also captured a suspected terrorist who allegedly confessed to beheading hundreds of people. The operation by Iraqi forces also netted documents, cell phones and computers containing information on other wanted terrorists and Islamic extremist groups. The worst bombing hit the outdoor market as Iraqis were doing their evening shopping in Husseiniyah, about 60 miles north of Baghdad. At least 25 people were killed and 65 were wounded, Interior Ministry spokesman Lt. Col. Falah Al-Mohamedawi said. last_img read more
