A bird flies near the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) secretariat building, ahead of the ASEAN leaders' meeting in Jakarta, Indonesia, April 23, 2021. REUTERS/Willy KurniawanBANDAR SERI BEGAWAN, Oct 26 (Reuters) - A summit of Southeast Asian leaders got underway on Tuesday without a Myanmar representative, after its junta leader was excluded for failure to follow a regional peace deal and the ruling military refused to send junior representation. Neither Brunei, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) chair, nor the bloc's secretary-general made a mention of the no-show in opening remarks at the virtual meeting. Brunei had said the bloc would invite a non-political representative from Myanmar, but there was no confirmation of this by the opening of the summit. In deciding to sideline the Myanmar junta boss, ASEAN cited his failure to make steps to end hostilities, initiate dialogue, allow humanitarian support and grant a special envoy full access in the country.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and David Attenborough speak with school children during a conference about the COP26 UN Climate Summit, at the Science Museum in London, Britain February 4, 2020. Britain has cast the United Nations COP26 climate conference which begins in Glasgow on Oct. 31 as the last big chance to slow rising temperatures, and hopes to persuade leaders to adopt tougher climate targets. "Every day that goes by in which we don't do something about it is a day wasted," he said. The U.N. said on Monday greenhouse gas concentrations had hit a record last year and the world was "way off track" in capping rising temperatures. Attenborough said leading nations had a duty to help poorer countries because industrialisation had been one of the major factors in driving climate change.

There was simply no appetite, among House leadership, for such drastic and decisive action. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability. In plain English, Congress has the power and authority to expel from office any constitutional officer who engages in sedition and takes up arms against the Constitution of the United States. The original context for this, obviously, was the Civil War and its immediate aftermath. Under Johnson’s arrangement, the former Confederate states could operate under their antebellum constitutions, the end of slavery notwithstanding.

REUTERS/Peter NichollsLONDON, Oct 26 (Reuters) - A British lawmaker and former senior minister faces being suspended from parliament for 30 days after parliament's standards committee found him guilty of a serious breach of rules on paid advocacy. The government should put forward a motion to debate this suspension within five sitting days, the committee said. Paterson, who says the stress of the investigation played a major role in his wife's suicide last year, disputes the findings. He said he was raising issues of public health, including contaminated food, and this is within the rules.

A Texas man who reacted to an unknown car in his driveway by fatally shooting the driver was charged last week with murder. The man, Terry Duane Turner, 65, was arrested Friday and charged with murdering Adil Dghoughi, the Caldwell County Sheriff’s Office said.

The leaders of China and Russia said they won't be at this week's COP26 climate-change summit. China emits around 28% of the world's CO2 emissions, while Russia emits around 5%. Their absence is especially significant given their nations' contributions to global emissions, with China producing an estimated 28% and Russia 5% of global CO2 output. Other world leaders at the summit may find it harder to strike a historic agreement on climate change without Xi and Putin around. China emits nearly 28% of the world's global carbon dioxide emissions, according to Our World in Data, more than any other country.

Given current annual emissions of 50 billion tonnes, the heavy lifting has to happen this decade. QUICK WIN ONE: MUCH MORE HELP FOR POORER COUNTRIESOne way to keep significant 2030 emissions cuts alive is for rich countries to stop being tight. The fossil fuel belches out 10 billion tonnes of CO2 a year, a fifth of the planet’s total, according to the IEA. If they don’t, these plants will eat up over half the remaining 500 billion tonnes of carbon budget. The IEA reckons such moves would save 100 billion tonnes of emissions by 2050, 20% of the remaining carbon budget.
