Big Oil's rise in climate lawsuits draws parallels to Big Tobacco

The prospect of a rising tide of climate litigation cases against heavy emitting businesses comes shortly after a landmark courtroom defeat for Royal Dutch Shell. INA FASSBENDER | AFP | Getty ImagesSince the turn of the century, more than 2,000 climate litigation cases were found to have been filed in a trend that is widely expected to have global implications for carbon-intensive companies. Nonetheless, it is the Dutch court ruling against Shell that is thought to have emboldened climate activists into taking on corporates directly. EcocideThe risks of a surging number of climate litigation cases for businesses include a changing regulatory environment, significant reputational damage and the expanding nature of the cases being brought. Among the new arenas of climate litigation risk, analysts say, are fraud and consumer protection liabilities, planning and permitting laws and environmental performance.

Live Covid-19 Live Updates: More U.S. States Try Lotteries to Tackle Vaccine Hesitancy Louisiana, where the inoculation rate has lagged significantly behind the national average, is among the latest to dangle cash prizes and scholarships in return for getting a shot. Six of the bottom eight states are in the South: They include Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia and Tennessee. The Biden administration has made a concerted push to overcome vaccine hesitancy, particularly in the South. In some states, he said, the lotteries coincided with making the vaccine available to teenagers, which could skew the numbers. He suggested comparing the vaccination rates in states with lotteries to those without them.

A person protests in support of Britney Spears on the day of a conservatorship case hearing at Stanley Mosk Courthouse in Los Angeles on June 23, 2021. When they met again at a meet-and-greet in the late 2010s, he perceived that Spears’ demeanor had changed; her interaction with fans felt more restrictive.

The movement upended the housing market, which led Google searches for "should I buy a house?" For that very reason, it's all too easy to find downsides to every kind of single-family home on the market right now, from new builds to decrepit fixer-uppers. The median size of a single-family house completed in 2020 was 2,261 square feet, according to US Census Bureau data. Meanwhile, the National Association of Home Builders found that lumber prices have been so high that they could stand to add over $35,000 in costs to a new build. But lumber prices are already cooling, which could provide builders much-needed relief soon.

A survey conducted by IGLTA found that 73% of LGBTQ+ travelers were planning a major vacation by year's end. "It will be interesting to see how that influences LGBTQ+ travel over the long run." Other destinations keen to follow their lead might consider adjusting their funding models first before plunging into LGBTQ+ marketing.

REUTERS/Carlos BarriaWASHINGTON, June 24 (Reuters) - President Joe Biden heads to North Carolina on Thursday to encourage people to get their COVID-19 vaccinations as the rate of inoculations slows despite a nationwide effort to get shots in arms to stop the spread of the coronavirus. Sixteen states and the District of Columbia have reached Biden’s goal, but the country as a whole and several other states continue to lag, including North Carolina. Only 55% of the southern state's adult population has had at least one shot despite a slew of incentives, including a $1 million lottery, according to the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services. The trip to North Carolina, Biden's first since he took office in January, is one of a series of COVID-related events on Thursday, including a press call by Second Gentleman Douglas Emhoff and U.S. First Lady Jill Biden and Fauci are in Florida to visit vaccine sites, including a drive-through site and one at a hockey arena.

Workers walk out of Smithfield Foods pork plant as the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) continues, in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, U.S., April 16, 2020. In Mexico, pork skins are mostly used to make chicharrones, a popular fried delicacy found in a variety of dishes, from tacos to soups. Smithfield's Tar Heel plant - the world's largest - can slaughter more than 34,000 hogs daily, about 7% of U.S. capacity, according to industry estimates. Senasica's decision to prevent further exports from the Smithfield and Rava facilities was based on the "accumulation" of tainted cargos of refrigerated pork skins. Specifically, an April 15 rejection from the Tar Heel plant came after inspectors observed rotting product covered with "yellowish spots."

As the Pace of Vaccinations Slows, Biden Makes a Personal Appeal
  + stars: | 2021-06-24 | by ( Zolan Kanno-Youngs | ) www.nytimes.com sentiment -0.88   time to read: +1 min
WASHINGTON — President Biden implored Americans on Thursday to “knock on doors and talk to friends and neighbors” about getting vaccinated, as the White House opened a campaign-like blitz to persuade people around the country to get their shots. Mr. Biden’s speech, in North Carolina, came as the government is shifting its strategy from mass vaccination sites to a more localized effort — deploying top officials to local communities, with an eye toward younger Americans who have not had the access or are reluctant to get vaccinated. The White House has sent other big names out on the road recently, as well. The first lady, Jill Biden, visited vaccination sites in Florida on Thursday and planned to travel to at least five states between this week and July 4. (It is a traveling schedule that, at this point, is busier than her husband’s.)

The benefits of Covid-19 vaccination far outweigh the risks of heart inflammation in young people, a panel of independent advisers to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Wednesday. “The benefits certainly, at this time, outweigh the potential risks,” said advisory committee member Dr. Pablo Sanchez, a professor of pediatrics at Ohio State University. Myocarditis cases were most common in males in their teens and early 20s, and were mostly to occur within one week after the second dose. The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices presentations underscored that the vast majority of patients have recovered, though more data on the long-term effects are needed. “The most common is after you have a viral infection.” Passeretti is not a member of the advisory committee.

The award-winning journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones will not join the faculty at University of North Carolina “without the protection and security of tenure,” her legal team said this week in a letter to school officials following weeks of controversy over the board of trustees’ failure to grant her tenure. Therefore, although she is not withdrawing her tenure application, Hannah-Jones won’t begin working at the university until she receives the promised career-long appointment. Among Hannah-Jones's critics was Walter E. Hussman Jr., a mega-donor for whom the journalism school is named. The board’s failure to act on Hannah-Jones’ tenure package sparked outrage from faculty and students at the university and others. In the new letter, Hannah-Jones’ legal team highlighted that the “inferior terms of employment” offered to her resulted from unconstitutional free speech violations and “discrimination and retaliation” on the basis of race and sex.

REUTERS/John Gress/File PhotoWASHINGTON, June 23 (Reuters) - The United States International Trade Commission (ITC) said on Wednesday that U.S. manufacturers are "materially injured" by imports of passenger vehicle and light truck tires from Korea, Taiwan and Thailand. In 2020, the U.S. Commerce Department opened investigations into vehicle tire imports from South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam in response to petitions filed by the United Steelworkers (USW) representing workers at U.S. tire plants. The union won orders on imported vehicle tires from China in 2015, and Chinese imports have since shrunk dramatically, allowing the domestic industry to invest in new capacity, the union said last year. The United States imported $4.4 billion in tires from the four nations in 2020. The USW said previously tire imports from the four countries had risen nearly 20% since 2017, reaching 85.3 million tires in 2019.

Although the number of uninsured Latino children was still higher than that of non-Latino children, the 2016 rate was a historic low believed to reflect an improvement in narrowing health coverage disparities between Latino children and their peers. The comprehensive report shows how certain factors such as state of residency, country of origin and immigration status can make some Latino uninsured children more vulnerable than others. It matters where Latino children liveTo Whitener's surprise, state of residency is the factor that "correlates more with uninsured rates" among Latino children, she said. As many as 1 in 5 Latino children lack health insurance in Mississippi, which is among the five states with the highest rates of uninsured Latino children, the study shows. The data shows that Medicaid expansion "is imperative" to ensure more Latino children have coverage, Whitener said.

The Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones has told the University of North Carolina that she will not join its faculty as planned next month unless she is granted tenure, according to a letter from her lawyers. Ms. Hannah-Jones, a correspondent for The New York Times Magazine, had agreed to teach at the university’s Hussman School of Journalism and Media as the Knight Chair in Race and Investigative Journalism. Her appointment drew bitter opposition from conservatives nationwide over Ms. Hannah-Jones’s role in creating The Times’s 1619 Project — an ambitious series that reframed the history of the United States through the lens of slavery — and she was ultimately denied tenure. The letter, initially reported by NC Policy Watch and published on its site, pointedly referred to political interference by an unnamed “powerful donor” whose influence “contributed to the Board of Trustees’ failure to consider her tenure application.”“In light of this information, Ms. Hannah-Jones cannot trust that the university would consider her tenure application in good faith during the period of the fixed-term contract,” according to the letter, which was dated Monday.

REUTERS/Stephanie Keith/File PhotoWASHINGTON, June 23 (Reuters) - An alleged member of the right-wing Oath Keepers militia is due to plead guilty on Wednesday to charges related to the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol by then-President Donald Trump's supporters. Federal prosecutors said in court papers that on Dec. 3, Young emailed a membership application to the Oath Keepers' Florida chapter saying he was "looking to get involved in helping." On Dec. 26, prosecutors said, he wrote to a Florida company engaged in firearms and combat training: "I have joined Oath Keepers. The indictment says Young and eight other indicted Oath Keepers, as well as others "known and unknown," pushed their way in a "stack" up the steps on the east side of the Capitol building. As described by federal investigators, the Oath Keepers are a loosely organized group of activists who believe that the federal government is encroaching on their rights, who "explicitly focus" on recruiting current and former police, emergency services and military members.

Even in the "Zoom school" era, "one strike and you're out" remains the rule of the game. Over the past few decades, schools have increasingly adopted zero-tolerance policies on things like weapons, drugs, and bullying in school. In the " Zoom school" era, "one strike and you're out" remains the rule of the game. But some recent stories have demonstrated both the absurdity and the cruel inhumanity of zero-tolerance school policies for online behavior both in "normal" times and particularly during this bizarre moment. Zero tolerance is inhumane and impracticalThe thing about zero-tolerance policies, like mandatory-minimum prison sentences, is they leave no room for mercy or a greater contextual understanding.

But it will take “a few extra weeks” to include all Americans 18 and older to that group, Zients is to acknowledge. Through Sunday, 150 million Americans had been fully vaccinated, with 65.4 percent of adults having received at least a single dose. Now, though, the White House is planning to host a major Independence Day celebration at the White House, welcoming 1,000 members of the armed forces and frontline workers. “The new variant will leave unvaccinated people even more vulnerable than they are a month ago,” Biden warned last Friday as he touted 300 million vaccination doses administered since he took office.

REUTERS/Dustin ChambersJune 22 (Reuters) - U.S. President Joe Biden needs to do more to secure voting rights for Black Americans, said activists traveling through the South to commmemorate the historic 'Freedom Riders'. Dozens of civil rights activists are traveling on five customized buses from Jackson, Mississippi to Washington D.C. this week, to mark the 60th anniversary of the historic protest against segregated bus terminals in the south, and push for voting rights legislation. Biden has appointed Vice President Kamala Harris to lead the Democrats' effort against a slew of restrictive state voting rights bills, including sweeping changes in battleground states like Georgia. Congress will vote on a Democratic-backed voting rights bill Tuesday, that faces long odds in the U.S. Senate.
