UN warns world 'way off track' as greenhouse gases soar
  + stars: | 2021-10-25 | by ( Emma Farge | ) www.reuters.com   time to read: +2 min
A report by the World Meteorological Organization showed that carbon dioxide levels surged to 413.2 parts per million in 2020, rising more than the average rate over the last decade despite a temporary dip in emissions during COVID-19 lockdowns. "We are way off track," he said. The report confirmed, as expected, that the COVID-19 economic slowdown "did not have any discernible impact on the atmospheric levels of greenhouse gases and their growth rates." It added that early readings showed levels of carbon dioxide, the gas that makes the biggest contribution to warming, continued to rise in 2021. Even if deep emissions cuts are made now, climate scientists say the warming trend will remain intact because past carbon dioxide emissions stay in the atmosphere for centuries.

"I think I've aged about 25 years in that race," said relieved Red Bull team boss Christian Horner. Hamilton was quickest when the lights went out, squeezing through on the inside at turn one with Verstappen forced to run wide and plenty of overtaking going on in their wake. Verstappen made his second stop on lap 30 to hand Hamilton the lead again. "It's all about the last three laps," Hamilton was told over the radio but while he closed the gap to under a second, he could not get close enough to attempt a move. The next race is on Nov. 7 in Mexico City, Perez's home race and a circuit expected to favour Red Bull.

MEXICO CITY—In early September, 12-year-old Zulma Gonzalez grew exasperated. Zulma, who suffers from Type 1 diabetes and is at risk of having a serious illness with Covid-19, had been trying to get vaccinated for months to feel safe enough to return to school and have a normal life again. But government policy didn’t allow minors like Zulma to get vaccinated because officials said that anyone under 18 was unlikely to get gravely ill with Covid-19. The policy has been criticized by some epidemiologists, who cite the arrival in recent months of the Delta variant and another big wave of deaths in Mexico, the world’s fourth hardest hit country in pandemic deaths.

REUTERS/Tomas BravoMEXICO CITY, Oct 22 (Reuters) - Mexico's government said on Friday that it has established a working group to investigate allegations of forced labor at two tomato export firms, after the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said it would bar imports from those firms. CBP issued a withhold release order against Agropecuarios, Horticola and their subsidiaries based on information that reasonably indicates the use of forced labor against its workers. "If any breach of labor regulations is identified, a plan is established to guarantee the protection of workers' rights," the labor ministry said. The administration of U.S. President Joe Biden has said addressing forced labor allegations are a priority in its trade relations with Mexico. The International Labor Organization estimates that 25 million workers suffer under conditions of forced labor worldwide, according to the Biden administration.

The White House has delayed a planned release of classified documents about JFK's assassination. In a memo President Biden said that the pandemic had hampered the process of reviewing possible redactions. President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in 1963, and his death has sparked numerous conspiracy theories. President John F. Kennedy was fatally shot in 1963 as he drove through downtown Dallas in a presidential motorcade. In 2017, former President Donald Trump released several thousand documents about the assassination, including FBI, CIA, and other agency documents.

Gang shootout in northern Mexico leaves four dead -officials

MEXICO CITY, Oct 23 (Reuters) - A car chase and shootout between gang members and law enforcement near Mexico's northern border left three members of the powerful Gulf Cartel dead along with one bystander, officials said on Saturday. The incident began on Friday evening in the border city of Matamoros, when military and police officers attempted to halt several suspicious vehicles, officials from the northern state of Tamaulipas said in a statement. Gang members fired on the security forces, set up 15 blockades across the city and set fire to several cars. Videos on social media showed a line of cars speeding through the city accompanied by the rapid gunfire and flying bullets. The program has been heavily criticized by migrant advocates for sending asylum seekers to crime-ridden border cities, such as Matamoros, for lengthy waits.

President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador told reporters he expected higher prices would abate “soon.”According to data from national statistics agency INEGI released earlier on Friday, consumer prices rose 0.54% during the first half of October. That boosted the headline annual inflation rate to 6.1%, significantly higher than the 3% target set by the central bank. Meanwhile, the closely watched core price index , which strips out some volatile food and energy prices, climbed 0.33% during the same two-week period. Speaking at his regular morning news conference, Lopez Obrador expressed concern that rising prices were hitting family finances while also dismissing the possibility that creeping inflation would persist for an extended time. “I think it’s a transitory issue and fleeting, and that we’ll have a reduction in inflation soon,” Lopez Obrador said.

A diesel and fuel pump machine are seen at a gas station, in Mexico City, Mexico January 15, 2019. The environment ministry did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Plans to mandate ultra-low-sulfur diesel (ULSD) were designed to reduce pollution from transporting everything from school children to cement and especially the massive volume of U.S. imports that cross Mexico's northern border. Compared with conventional diesel, low-sulfur diesel can reduce harmful air contaminants like nitrogen oxide and tiny particulate matter by upwards of 90%, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. KEEP ON TRUCKINGIn June, associations including truck manufacturers and operators pointed to an industry study showing shrinking ultra-low-sulfur diesel availability at gasoline stations in Mexico.

On May 30, he wrote a long statement on his Facebook account to draw the attention of Argentine lawmakers and the international community to the urgent need to approve a euthanasia law in his country. Worldwide, euthanasia is legal in seven countries: Belgium, Luxembourg, Canada, New Zealand, Spain, the Netherlands and Colombia. Until this year, euthanasia was permitted only in cases of terminal illnesses with life expectancies of six months or less. That is why we must have a euthanasia law,” he said. That is why I am asking for a euthanasia law, not a good death.

A woman receives a dose of Pfizer/BioNTech coronavirus disease (COVID-19) vaccine during a vaccination campaign inside the University of Santiago, Chile June 30, 2021. With vaccination rates on the rise, countries are facing fresh questions about how to contain the spread of COVID-19 while easing pandemic travel restrictions. "It can facilitate tourism, it can facilitate business, it is in the interest of society," Barbosa said. Turning away people based on their vaccine could unfairly impact certain travelers, he said, adding, "This could undoubtedly create a kind of discrimination." The COVAX vaccine sharing program is scheduled to provide another 4.6 million shots to the region by the end of the week.

Some other carriers, including Mexico’s TAR Airlines in 2015, have previously announced they would accept bitcoin. Chivo is the bitcoin digital wallet launched last month by El Salvador’s government as part of its adoption of bitcoin as legal tender, alongside the U.S. dollar. Volaris, based in Mexico, said on its website that it was working to give clients in El Salvador the option to pay with the digital currency for services at the airport. El Salvador's civil aviation authority in August granted Volaris' local subsidiary authorization here to operate in El Salvador.

Russian President Vladimir Putin delivers a speech during a plenary session of the Russian Energy Week International Forum in Moscow, Russia October 13, 2021. He skipped the last in-person G20 summit held in Japan in 2019 before COVID-19 hit. Last week, after coughing repeatedly at a government meeting, Putin said he had caught a cold. He has followed some international events by video link but did not dial into a G20 meeting on Afghanistan organised by Italy earlier this month. It was not clear if he would take part in the G20 summit virtually if he does not come in person, officials said.
