THE THESIS: Just as Joe Biden cannot understand what the scheming and evil people are doing to use under cover of Covid, he doesn't get it on energy or food.  THE SCRIPTURE & SCRIPTURAL RESOURCES:  Matthew 9:35 Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. What Did Jesus Actually Have to Say about Money? THE NEWS & COMMENT: [AUDIO] - President Macron attempts to explain the reality of the petroleum markets to the Figurehead [AUDIO] - Oil reached 'peak' prices, food still on the rise: Billionaire supermarket owner  . . . United Refining Chairman and CEO John Cats-imat-idis, who is also the billionaire owner and CEO of New York City supermarket chain Gristedes, weighs in on whether inflation could start to come down soon. Northern Ireland will need to lose more than 1 million sheep and cattle to meet its new legally binding climate emissions targets, according to an industry-commissioned analysis seen by the Guardian. In Indiana, 9,200 acres of farmland to be used for a massive solar farm In May 2022, a number of experts started speaking out about the inevitability of coming food shortages. The United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres warned of "the specter of a global food shortage in coming months" unless international action is taken,6 and The Economist featured "The Coming Food Catastrophe" on its cover.7 During the 2022 World Economic Forum (WEF) meeting in Davos, Kristalina Georgieva, managing director of the International Monetary Fund, told attendees that "the anxiety about access to food at a reasonable price globally is hitting the roof,"8 and President Biden, in March 2022, told reporters that food shortages are "going to be real."9 A May 30, 2022, Reuters report10 showed the global food price index had risen 58.5% above the 2014-2016 average as of April 2022, due to a convergence of "post-pandemic global demand, extreme weather, tightening food stocks, high energy prices, supply chain bottlenecks ... export restrictions and taxes" combined with Russia's invasion of Ukraine. Together, Russia and Ukraine account for as much as 12% of all globally traded calories,11 making the timing of the conflict a particularly perilous one for the world. Not surprisingly, countries that are heavily reliant on imports have seen the steepest food price increases. In early April 2022, Rockefeller Foundation president Rajiv Shah and Sara Menker, founder of Gro Intelligence, published an op-ed12 in The New York Times blaming "Putin's war" for the looming food crisis but, clearly, we were already on the path toward global famine long before Putin entered Ukraine. Weather, for example — whether natural or manufactured — plays an important role. As noted by Shah and Menker, "historic drought" plagues many parts of the world, including the U.S. Midwest, Brazil, Argentina, North Africa, the Middle East13 and India.14 Meanwhile, China's agricultural lands are drowning under the "heaviest rains in 60 years."15 See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

The Covid-19 pandemic introduced something that Americans are not use to seeing: empty store shelves. At first, empty store shelves were caused by shoppers hoarding items out of fear there could be a shortage. Now, store shelves are empty because of supply chain disruptions that occurred during the lockdowns. Recently United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres warned international leaders that worsening food shortages around the world could lead to a catastrophe.

Mkutano wa pili wa Umoja wa Mataifa kuhusu bahari umeanza leo huko Lisbon Ureno ambapo Katibu Mkuu wa Umoja wa Mataifa Antonio Guterres amesema ni lazima kubadili mwelekeo na mwenendo wa shughuli za binadamu kwa bahari la sivyo uchafuzi wa bahari utavuruga  harakati zote za kufanikisha malengo ya maendeleo endelevu, SDGs.

Senate passes gun violence bill; Jan. 6 hearings continue; Supreme Court strikes down gun law; Duke standout goes first in NBA draft | Top headlines for June 23 & 24, 2022

UPDATED FRIDAY MORNING: Congress is on the verge of approving a $13 billion bipartisan gun violence bill that seemed unimaginable a month ago. House approval is expected Friday on legislation that would be lawmakers' most sweeping answer in decades to mass shootings that have come to shock yet not surprise Americans. The Senate approved the measure Thursday, with 15 Republicans joining Democrats in backing passage. The election year vote comes just weeks after a gunman massacred 19 elementary school students and two teachers in Uvalde, Texas, and a white man motivated by racism allegedly killed 10 Black grocery shoppers in Buffalo, New York. Governors, lawmakers and attorneys general in states with strict gun-permitting laws are strategizing over how to shore up their restrictions after Thursday's U.S. Supreme Court decision expanded gun rights in a New York case. The head of the United Nations has warned the world faces “catastrophe” because of the growing shortage of food around the globe. U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres says the war in Ukraine has fueled an “unprecedented global hunger crisis” already affecting hundreds of millions of people. Guterres said U.N. negotiators have been working on a deal that would enable Ukraine to export food and let Russia bring food and fertilizer to world markets without restrictions. A regional governor in eastern Ukraine says that the country's troops will retreat from a besieged city to avoid encirclement. The city of Sievierodonetsk, the administrative center of the Luhansk region, has faced relentless Russian bombardment. Toyota is recalling 2,700 of its bZ4X crossover vehicles globally for wheel bolts that could become loose, in a major setback for the Japanese automaker's ambitions to roll out electric cars. The House panel investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol revealed Thursday that several Republican loyalists in Congress who trumpeted the president's claims later sought pardons from the White House after the effort failed. In sports, a Duke player goes No. 1 in the NBA draft, the Yankees stun the Astros, the Braves beat the Giants, a Pro Football Hall of Famer dies and another Manning will be heading to the SEC. EARIER REPORTS FIRST PUBLISHED THURSDAY: Federal agents have searched the Virginia home of a Trump-era Justice Department official who championed efforts by Trump to overturn the results of the 2020 election. That's according to a person familiar with the matter.  The Supreme Court has ruled that Americans have a right to carry firearms in public for self-defense, a major expansion of gun rights. The court struck down a New York gun law in a ruling expected to directly impact half a dozen other populous states. Thursday's decision came with recent mass shootings fresh in the nation's mind and Americans emotionally divided on the issue. Across the street from the court, the Senate sped toward passage of its own national legislation, a gun law modest in scope but still the most far-reaching in decades. Authorities say a knife-wielding psychiatric patient has fatally stabbed one man and wounded another inside a Las Vegas hospital. Metro Police say the stabbings occurred early Thursday in the psychiatric ward of University Medical Center. A judge has given final approval to a settlement of more than $1 billion for victims of the collapse of a Florida beachfront condominium. Ninety-eight people died when the 12-story Champlain Towers South suddenly collapsed. It was one of the deadliest building failures in U.S. history. Michigan has agreed to destroy more than 3 million dried blood spots taken from babies and kept in storage. It's all part of a partial settlement in an ongoing lawsuit over consent and privacy in the digital age. Hospitals routinely prick the heels of newborns to draw blood to check for more than 50 rare diseases. That practice isn't being challenged. The dispute in Michigan is over leftover samples. Health officials have ordered vaping company Juul to pull its electronic cigarettes from the U.S. market. It's the biggest blow yet to the embattled company that is widely blamed for sparking a surge in teen vaping. The announcement Thursday by the Food and Drug Administration is part of a sweeping regulatory review of e-cigarettes, which faced little regulation until recently. Average long-term U.S. mortgage rates inched up this week following last week's mammoth jump, the biggest in 35 years. Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac reported Thursday that the 30-year rate ticked up to 5.81% this week, from last week's 5.78%. Andrea Fuentes prevented a tragedy at the swimming world championships in Budapest, Hungary, with her quick reaction. The United States coach knew something was wrong when she saw artistic swimmer Anita Alvarez sink motionless to the bottom of the pool during a solo free routine on Wednesday. —The Associated Press See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Diese Woche in der Zukunft:  Der Aufstand der Letzten Generation läuft. Er heizt die Debatte um Klimaschutz auf; das ist auch genau die Absicht. Ist das angemessen? Zielführend? Oder doch nur störend? Sprechen wir mit einem der ersten, die mit Sekundenkleber auf Asphalt für ihre Zukunft streiten. Diese Folge beginnt mit einem Tweet von https://twitter.com/AlexanderGrevel (@AlexanderGrevel): „Liebe Menschen, vor ein paar Monaten (Februar 2022) habe ich meine Doktorarbeit an der Uni Freiburg erfolgreich abgeschlossen. Nun fängt ein neuer Lebensabschnitt an: ab dem 18. Juni werde ich mit https://twitter.com/AufstandLastGen (@AufstandLastGen) in #Beriln in den friedlichen zivilen Widerstand gehen, weil ich überzeugt bin, dass wir aufgrund des knappen Zeitfenster die Möglichkeiten für Klimastreiks und Petitionen ausgeschöpft haben…“  Dr. Alexander Grevel hat Chemie studiert, in Biologie promoviert und hat seine akademische Laufbahn abgebrochen, um als Aktivist für schnelle und drastische Maßnahmen zum Klimaschutz zu kämpfen. Er ist seit einigen Monaten aktiv bei der Gruppe https://letztegeneration.de/ (Aufstand der letzten Generation), die gerade eine weitere Aktionswelle gestartet haben. Alexander geht mit ungefähr 200 Menschen in Berlin auf die Straße, um zu stören – und mit dieser Störung auf die Forderungen der „Letzten Generation“ hinzuweisen. Der Schlüssel ist der Sekundenkleber, mit dem sich die Aktivisten auf Straßen kleben und damit den Verkehr dort lahmlegen, wo es besonders weh tut. Die Störung ist Programm.  Warum die Drastik? Radikal wäre es, nichts zu tun, so Alexander. Das Zeitfenster, in dem wir noch nennenswertes unternehmen können, ist nicht mehr lange offen. Danach, so Alexander, wird unsere Welt von Hunger, Wasserknappheit, Flucht und Kriegen bestimmt sein. Im Moment steuern wir geradewegs darauf zu.  Ist diese Aktionsform gerechtfertigt? Was bringt Menschen dazu diese Aktionsform zu wählen? Sie werden angebrüllt, geschlagen, von der Fahrbahn gezerrt. Alexander sagt: Die Störung ist absolut notwendig. Und die Letzte Generation hat Zulauf: Im vergangenen halben Jahr hat die Gruppe sich von 25 auf 200 Menschen vergrößert und mit jeder Störung werden es mehr. Die Menschen werden aufmerksam und sprechen darüber, gerade weil sie in ihrem Alltag blockiert werden. Aber ist das was die Gruppe tut radikal? Oder ist es radikal nichts zu tun? Der Generalsekretär der vereinten Nationen, https://www.rnd.de/politik/antonio-guterres-bezeichnet-neuen-klimabericht-als-dokument-der-schande-XLA2Z4M2HPT7WCMKNPVAYSNUMM.html (António Guterres) sagt, die wahren Radikalen sind die Regierungen, die einfach so weiter machen, wie sie das seit Jahrzehnten machen.  Parallel bereitet Alexander die Gründung einer neuen linken Partei vor.

Seit Jahresbeginn ist der Brotpreis in Simbabwe um fast die Hälfte gestiegen – von rund einem Dollar auf 1,40 Dollar. Tendenz weiter steigend. Der russische Angriffskrieg mit Zerstörung und Blockade ukrainischer Häfen sowie Angriffen auf zivile Infrastruktur und Landwirtschaft hat auch dramatische globale Auswirkungen. Der bereits durch Klimawandel, Pandemie und bewaffnete Konflikte bestehende Krisendruck wird nochmal bedeutend verstärkt. UN-Generalsekretär Guterres hatte zuletzt im Kontext der auch zu diesem Thema eingesetzten ‘Global Crisis Response Group on Food, Energy & Finance' deutlich klargestellt: "We need to act now.” Am 24. Juni findet eine internationale Konferenz für globale Ernährungssicherheit im Auswärtigen Amt statt. Außenministerin Baerbock, Entwicklungsministerin Schulze sowie Landwirtschaftsminister Özdemir laden nach Berlin ein, um zusammen mit dem globalen Süden über Wege aus der Krise zu beraten.

The head of the United Nations implored graduating college students on Tuesday to reject jobs at companies that fund the fossil fuel industry he described as “killing our planet.” U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres made his remarks to graduating seniors at Seton Hall University in New Jersey. Guterres told the class at Newark's Prudential Center that they are entering a world “brimming with peril” from conflict and strife and the effects of climate change — but that they can reverse the errors of previous generations by not working for financial institutions that profit off fossil fuels. “Despite mountains of evidence of looming climate catastrophe, we still see mountains of funding for coal and fossil fuels that are killing our planet,” he said. "That money continues to flow from some of the biggest names in finance, hedge funds and private equity. “As graduates, you hold the cards,” Guterres continued. "Your talent is in demand from multinational companies and big financial institutions. You will have plenty of opportunities to choose from thanks to the excellence of your graduation. So my message to you is simple: Don't work for climate-wreckers. Use your talents to drive us towards a renewable future.” Guterres's remarks came a week after he announced a five-point plan to encourage use of renewable energy around the globe, in the wake of a World Meteorological Organization report that said the last seven years were the seven hottest on record. The plan calls for fostering technology transfer and lifting of intellectual property protections in renewable technologies as well as broadening access to supply chains and raw materials that go into renewable technologies. “The climate crisis is wreaking havoc, and threatening to erase entire communities and even entire countries — with governments failing to take the action needed to turn this around," Guterres said Tuesday. “My generation — and your parents' generation — have fallen short in bequeathing the world you deserve. But I have hope that you will succeed where we failed.” This article was provided by The Associated Press.

In this interview, Jeremy Lent, "one of the greatest thinkers of our age" according to renown journalist George Monbiot, discusses ecological reality, how we understand it, and what we should do next as a society. Jeremy contrasts our modern ways of thinking about existence with the ancient ways from China and the world's Indigenous communities. He shares how connectedness, "which is to say love," is the essence of these ancient worldviews and today's burgeoning complexity science. Jeremy describes the necessity of "deep transformation" into an "ecological civilization," the reality that "the health of the whole system requres the health of each part of the system", and shares what keeps him going. About JeremyJeremy Lent is author of two breakthrough books on consciousness and Western Civilization. The Patterning Instinct is a cultural history of humanity's search for meaning, and The Web of Meaning explores and weaves together wisdom from ancient China, traditional Indigenous communities, Western philosophy, and today's Sciences. Jeremy also recently launched a global network for ecological civilization called The Deep Transformation Network.

What is your spiritual source, what is helping you do this?WRAP UP58:00 “How are your connections?”Quotes Even though in the West we're just beginning to uncover the importance of making these connections, Traditional ways of making sense of things always focused on these connections. So in early China, for example, about 1,000 years ago, they integrated three of the great Chinese traditions from the past: Buddhism, Taoism, and Confucianism…You don't have the universe without all the stuff and all the relationships…Every one of (the big shifts) happened because of symbiosis with other species, where they take their specialist skills … and that is what we get from today, where if we walk in a forest we get … and transfer their seeds … and the fungal network underground… the whole thing is a symbiotic ecosystems. And if we can start to look at our human relationship, not at how can we conquer it, then we have a chance at shifting our trajectory.We can really understand “love” as being really, like, the realization and embrace of (our) connectedness. When we open our eyes, to that connectedness, embrace it with our being, that is love. . . It's all about this recognition of connectedness.“I think therefore I am” … is saying that thinking capacity is the only thing that actually is fundamentally my identity… but again, this is where modern science shows how fundamentally wrong that is… It's actually not the only part of our intelligence… What we really are as human beings is a combined, conceptual consciousness that allows us to think in those symbolic ways, and, what we can think of as our animate consciousness, our embodied wisdom, which actually is that vast bulk of what we are as human organisms and is also a gateway to connect us with the rest of life, because some of the deepest elements of what we have within our bodies are what we share with all life. And again, modern science validates that. Half of the genes we see in a banana are shared with us.… And that's not just a gee whiz fact, what that basically points to is that the way in which our bodies organize themselves, the way in which they actually are coherent and allow us to have awareness and consciousness are deeply similar. . . In Biology this is called “homology,” the deep history of our evolution is shared with all these other creatures around us…Once we realize that other animals, far from being machines, are actually sentient, feeling beings. and, in fact that any animal with a nervous system and a brain capable of cognizing, the chicken, cows, and pigs that we put in those factory farms, those are animals that suffer. And they may not think in the same way we do, but they are suffering in every bit just as terrible a way from torture and a diminishment of their own life possibilities, just as humans would. . . There is a deep, a profound, moral implication to that. It's quite possible that what we've done with factory farming, where 80 Billion animals every year are tortured and slaughtered for our benefit, is perhaps the greatest amount of suffering that has ever been caused on Planet Earth since life began billions of years ago. We have to face up to that. An “Ecological Civilization” looks at Life itself as the basis for how we actually construct our society.Ecosystems are based on principles of Life hat gave allowed them to be flouring in many cases through millions years, through changes in climate, through all kinds of disruptions, these ecosystems can accommodate that and stay healthy and resilient.An Ecological Civilization asks, “What are the principles that we can learn from Nature that we can apply to human Civilization that can allow for flourishing into the indefinite future?"The ancient Chinese had a concept called, “Ren.” To them Rev meant this profound sense of deep interconnectedness of all life. This recognition that we have … the opposite is “no Rev”, which translates to anesthesia. Perhaps the most important principle is "mutually-beneficial symbiosis."When we look at the way nature evolved, it evolved fractally. Basically “fractals” are patterns that repeat themselves at different scales. So you see that in things like lighting, the branching of the bronchia in our lungs, or neurons in the brain, or coastlines, you see it everywhere in Nature because they show self-organized activity. Ad ecosystems work fractally…Similarly, what that means if we apply that to human society is that the health of each part requires the health of the whole system. . . Our society can only truly flourish and make sure that they're flourishing.There's millions upon millions of people around the world who recognize there's something is profoundly wrong, and they often times feel very isolated because they're part of that consensus trance… We can only get to the transformation we need when we realize we're part of this deeper systemic shift.The Deep Transformation Network is “a global community to share these ideas and to actually work together to realize how deeply interconnected all these transformations are within our society.We need to look very clearly that we are headed into something even worse, unless we do this transformation, and I think we need to recognize that to have those feelings is actually part of what it means to be alive, to have that Ren, to realize that dee[ connection to other life.  . . the sense of expanded identity that “I am life”.That recognition that I actually am Life, that really drives me… I look to Life itself, as a source of, "What does Life want from me?" And the answer i get is that Life wants me to feel into that pain enough to be energized, enough to care, enough to change what I'm doing in my life, to really struggle for Life's own future. But Life doesn't also want me to fall into some sort of pit of despair and get stuck there. It wants me to be engaged, to engage with others… so that together, as a group, we have the potential to turn things around. It's about how I can amplify and resonate with the work of others, and how as a system of transformation we can make our civilization redirect — that's what gives me a sense of what's possible.Thanks for listening.

Wakati duniani inaadhimisha siku ya wakimbizi duniani hii leo kwa kuwa na idadi kubwa kabisa ya wakimbizi kuwahi kurekodiwa, Katibu Mkuu wa Umoja wa Mataifa Antonio Guterres anasema siku hii itumike kutafakari juu ya ujasiri wa wale wanaokimbia vita, vurugu na mateso pamoja na kutambua huruma ya wale wanaowakaribisha wakimbizi hao. Anold Kayana na maelezo zaidi. Umoja wa Mataifa umesema jumla ya wanawake, wanaume na watoto wanaokimbia makazi yao mpaka sasa imefikia milioni 100 ikiwa ni rekodi mbaya zaidi kuwahi kurekodiwa duniani. Katibu Mkuu wa Umoja wa Mataifa anasema wakati leo dunia inaadhimisha siku ya wakimbizi dunia pia inathibitisha kanuni ya msingi ya kibinadamu kuwa kila mtu anahaki ya kutafuta usalama bila kujali mahali atokapo na wakati anapokimbia kusaka hifadhi. Taarifa ya Guterres kuhusu siku hii imemnukuu akisema vita vya Ukraine vimesababisha watu wengi zaidi kukimbia makazi yao na idadi yao ni kubwa kurekodiwa barani ulaya tangu Vita vya pili vya dunia. Kusaka hifadhi ni haki ya msingi ya binadamu Mkuu huyo wa umoja wa Mataifa amesema “ Sheria ya kimataifa iko wazi, haki ya kutafuta hifadhi ni haki ya msingi ya kibinadamu. Watu wanaokimbia vurugu au mateso lazima waweze kuvuka mipaka kwa usalama. Hawapaswi kukumbana na ubaguzi kwenye mipaka au kunyimwa isivyo haki hadhi ya ukimbizi au hifadhi kutokana na rangi, dini, jinsia au nchi yao ya asili.” Akarurimana James ni mkimbizi kutoka Burundi ambaye amenufaika na ardhi iliyotolewa na serikali ya DRC kwa ajili ya wakimbizi na wenyeji wao kwa lengo la kuimarisha kujitegemea. Amesema wasaka hifadhi hawawezi kulazimishwa kurejea katika nchi zao ikiwa uhuru wao ungali hatarini na kwamba wanapaswa kusaidiwa tena kwa heshima. Ameenda mbali zaidi na kueleza wakimbizi sio tu wanapaswa kupatiwa hifadhi lakini pindi waingiapo kwenye nchi nyingine wanastahili kupewa fursa mbalimbali ikiwa ni pamoja na kupata elimu, kufanya kazi pamoja na kujiendeleza na pindi wanapoamua kurejea makwao wana uwezo wa kufanya hivyo ili kujenga upya maisha yao. Hata hivyo amesema kubwa zaidi ni kuhakikisha maisha yao yapo salama na wanaishi kwa heshima na usalama popote pale walipo kwakuwa wakimbizi nao wanasaidia kuleta maisha mapya, ustawi, na anuwai nyingi za kitamaduni kwa jamii zinazowapokea. Guterres amehitisha taarifa yake kwa kukumbusha umma wa ulimwengu kuwa jukumu la kulinda wakimbizi ni la kila mtu "bila kusahau ubinadamu wetu na kwamba tunapoadhimisha siku ya wakimbizi hii leo hebu tuahidi kufanya zaidi kwa ajili ya wakimbizi kila mahali na kwa nchi zinazowahifadhi huku zenyewe zikikabiliwa na msururu wa changamoto. Tusimame pamoja kwa mshikamano. Tutetee uadilifu wa mfumo wa ulinzi wa kimataifa.”

V Česku chybí někdo, kdo by se rozhodl vyslovit, že klimatická změna je téma. Vždy se to nějak zamaže tím, že „máme rádi přírodu“. Kromě dekarbonizace bude třeba řešit i energetickou bezpečnost, říká Ondráš Přibyla z organizace Fakta o klimatu. Snahu o transformaci k udržitelnější ekonomice a snižování emisí, ke kterým se Česká republika a další státy zavázaly loni na podzim na klimatickém summitu COP26 v Glasgow, zastiňuje válka na Ukrajině a výzvy, které přinesla.„Transformace jsou nastartované, některým státům se daří snižovat emise dlouhodobě. Velká Británie nebo Dánsko snižují emise skoro o 4 % ročně, to je vlastně docela velká rychlost a není to jenom tím, co se přijalo v Glasgow,“ připomíná expert na komunikaci klimatických změn Ondráš Přibyla z organizace Fakta o klimatu. „Letos ale hlavně v evropském prostoru dominuje válka na Ukrajině, tam se upírá pozornost politiků i médií. Druhá část Šesté hodnotící zprávy IPCC vyšla letos v únoru v pondělí těsně poté, co Rusko zahájilo útok na Ukrajinu. A myslím, že její sdělení sledoval jen skutečně málokdo,“ dodává. Generální tajemník OSN António Guterres ji přitom označil jako „atlas lidského utrpení‘.„Když jsem si podrobněji pročítal tu zprávu, tak v zásadě říká, že dopady klimatické změny vidíme a budou dál zrychlovat. Uvádí velké množství různých příkladů dopadů na ekosystémy a biodiverzitu, které uvidíme ve čtyřech velkých oblastech: životní podmínky, potravinová bezpečnost, infrastruktura a příroda a přírodních kapitál,“ shrnuje Přibyla v podcastu Stopáž.

Arranca el último día de campaña para las elecciones andaluzas del 19J. Las encuestas apuntan a una victoria del Partido Popular, que se podría quedar cerca de la mayoría absoluta, algo que el candidato popular, Juanma Moreno, ha pedido a los jóvenes andaluces que le ayuden a conseguir. Desde Vox, mientras tanto, siguen insistiendo en que no aceptarán chantajes para formar gobierno en Andalucía. Desde el PSOE, en cambio, han criticado las acciones pasadas del PP en la comunidad, además de augurar un triunfo socialista el próximo domingo. Por otro lado, los transportistas autónomos se han reunido con el Ministerio de Transportes y, tras esa reunión, amenazan con hacer nuevos paros porque, dicen, trabajan por debajo de costes.

Anold Kayanda na maelezo zaidi. Mkutano huo wa siku kumi ulioanza leo (Juni 6 mpaka Juni 16, 2022) ulioandaliwa na Shirika la Umoja wa Mataifa la Mawasiliano Duniani, ITU unawaleta pamoja zaidi ya wadau elf moja na mia mbili ikiwemo wakuu wa nchi na serikali, mawaziri pamoja na wawakilishi wa vijana kutoka kila kona ya dunia.

50 anos após conferência ambiental histórica, Estocolmo agora debate transição ecológica justa

Estocolmo acolhe nesta quinta e sexta-feiras (2 e 3) uma conferência internacional para celebrar os 50 anos da primeira grande reunião multilateral sobre o meio ambiente, ocorrida na capital sueca em 1972. Meio século depois, a humanidade avança a passos lentos, mas determinados, para combater a crise ambiental. Lúcia Müzell, enviada especial da RFI a Estocolmo Naquele ano, com 113 nações representadas em volta da mesa, foi criado o Programa das Nações Unidas para o Meio Ambiente e estabelecido o Dia Mundial do Meio Ambiente, celebrado desde então a cada 5 de junho. "Estocolmo é o grande marco histórico em que esse tema entra na agenda do mundo e que se coloca a dimensão planetária dos problemas ambientais. Costumo dizer que Estocolmo 72 e Rio 92 marcam o início do século 21”, relembra o advogado e ambientalista Fábio Feldman, um dos fundadores da organização SOS Mata Atlântica nos anos 1980. "A influência de Estocolmo foi muito grande, como, por exemplo, na Constituição de 1988 do Brasil. Ela é inspirada nos produtos formais da Conferência de Estocolmo, com a institucionalização nos governos da questão ambiental e a criação, no caso brasileiro, da Secretaria Especial de Meio Ambiente”, indica. Avanços ocorrem, mas são lentos demais A conscientização sobre um planeta que ficava doente e que caminhava para se tornar “inabitável”, como já definiu a ONU, levou os países do mundo inteiro a assumirem compromissos cada vez mais abrangentes – desde limitar as emissões de gases de estufa e a perda da biodiversidade até reduzir a degradação dos solos e oceanos. A transição para uma economia sustentável, compatível com os limites do planeta, ocorre numa velocidade muito inferior à necessária para evitar os cenários mais catastróficos previstos pela ciência – mas ainda assim, há razões para olhar para o futuro com otimismo, na visão de Feldman. "Se o mundo está difícil nos temas como a mudança do clima ser o grande desafio da humanidade, a perda da biodiversidade comprometer o futuro, a má gestão dos recursos hídricos leva a crises etc, imagine se nós não tivéssemos tido 1972 e 1992?”, alega. "Os nossos temas exigem mudanças tão urgentes e radicais que elas não acontecem de uma hora para a outra. A ideia do desenvolvimento sustentável surgiu em 1992. Antes confundia-se crescimento econômico com desenvolvimento, considerava a ideia de poluição com progresso. Então, acho que houve uma mudança radical no mundo”, argumenta. Contexto diferente A ex-ministra do Meio Ambiente, Izabella Teixeira, presente na Estocolmo+50, acrescenta que o mundo hoje é "outro" em diversos aspectos, com o equilíbrio de forças que se ampliou e num contexto de pós-globalização. A responsabilidade da atividade humana nas crises ambientais está estabelecida pela ciência, ao contrário de 50 anos atrás. Hoje, a sociedade no seu conjunto é incitada a fazer a sua parte, muito além dos governos. Além disso, as consequências das crises da Covid-19 e da volta da guerra na Europa exacerbaram as desigualdades sociais no mundo, diante do imenso desafio comum de combater a mudança do clima. "Temos um apelo por justiça climática, de um lado, e de outro de justiça social, por uma transição justa, com letras garrafais. Estocolmo+ 50 discute essa trajetória”, antecipa. "As pessoas não podem mais ficar pensando em como era o mundo lá atrás. É uma trajetória de mudança muito grande da agenda, que faz com que o multilateralismo ambiental tenha uma dimensão muito estratégica." Para a ex-ministra, a nova conferência na Suécia começa a marcar as bases de uma nova cooperação internacional. Um dos aspectos em jogo é que os países desenvolvidos deverão reconquistar a confiança dos em desenvolvimento. “A guerra na Europa, pela guerra na Ucrânia, denuncia as nossas fragilidades ante à nossa interdependência enquanto países, pelas cadeias de produção e de valores, e por outro lado, a questão da energia, que é a origem do problema do clima, revela uma fortíssima pressão de curto prazo, que é a dependência energética dos países”, observa Izabella, que assinou o Acordo de Paris sobre o Clima em nome do Brasil, em 2015. "O contexto de ação de Estocolmo 2022 não é mais o que teremos no futuro, se existe um problema. Não: é como nós vamos agir.” Manifestação com Greta Thunberg A conferência "Estocolmo +50: um planeta sadio para a prosperidade de todas e todos” recebe nomes de peso como o secretário-geral da ONU, António Guterres, e o secretário especial americano para o Meio Ambiente John Kerry. Além de marcar as conquistas do passado, o evento visa acelerar a Década de Ação das Nações Unidas pelo desenvolvimento sustentável, prometido para 2030. A reunião é também uma ocasião a mais para os países ampliarem o diálogo sobre os principais temas ambientais globais, discutidos em profundidade nas conferências específicas da ONU, como a COP27 no Egito, prevista para novembro. Além disso, centenas de eventos paralelos ocorrem desde o início da semana em Estocolmo, com a participação da sociedade civil. Uma manifestação está prevista na sexta-feira, com a presença da jovem ativista Greta Thunberg, que é sueca.

The widely accepted idea of a cost-of-living crisis does not begin to capture the gravity of what may lie ahead according to António Guterres, the UN secretary general.  He warned earlier this week that the coming months threaten “the spectre of a global food shortage” that could last for years. The high cost of staple foods has already raised the number of people who cannot be sure of getting enough to eat by 440m, to 1.6bn. Nearly 250m are on the brink of famine.Patrick's Books:Statistics For The Trading Floor:  https://amzn.to/3eerLA0Derivatives For The Trading Floor:  https://amzn.to/3cjsyPFCorporate Finance:  https://amzn.to/3fn3rvC Patreon Page: https://www.patreon.com/PatrickBoyleOnFinance Support the show

In this episode, we talk about the impacts of living through a global energy crisis while living through a climate crisis. Inflation is running at 10% in most major economies, the highest in decades. This is driven primarily by the cost of food and energy. And while most of us are aware of higher prices at the pump and on energy bills, today we focus on the hardest place it is hitting: Africa. Since 2019, 4% of Africans have lost access to affordable energy, undoing a decade of gains.  And with a desire in the Global North to get off of Russian Gas, there is higher demand for gas, and therefore pushing more and more people out of the ability to afford it. This week in response, African Ministers made the case for expanding gas production in Africa, amidst a climate crisis. So that's the setup for this week's discussion - we bring in Rachel Kyte, Dean of the Fletcher School at Tufts University to argue the case on how to move forward out of this complicated situation.

On Monday, 260 Ukrainian fighters surrendered at the Azovstal steel plant in Mariupol. The troops were taken to areas under Russian control and now face an uncertain fate. Also, Secretary-General António Guterres says that the COVID-19 pandemic and the war in Ukraine has fueled unprecedented world hunger. In just two years, the number of food-insecure people has doubled to over 276 million worldwide. And Australian bands Hermitude and The Jungle Giants have teamed up to create a feel good vibe with their tune, "When You Feel Like This."

The United Nations Secretary General has warned that the war in Ukraine is increasing the risk of a global food shortage, and the possibility of mass hunger. At a UN summit in New York, António Guterres said the Russian invasion had compounded food insecurity, which had already been affected by rising temperatures and the pandemic. We speak to Matthew Hollingworth, Emergency Coordinator and Country Director in Ukraine for World Food Prog. Also, we hear from a volunteer helping fellow Ukrainian women cope with their new lives in Poland. Turkey says it will block Sweden and Finland joining NATO and accuses them of harbouring terrorists who threaten the Turkish state. We speak to an advisor to president Erdogan. And a rare insight into Afghanistan's Ministry of Vice and Virtue. (Photo credit: Getty Images)

Was für uns bereits seit über zwei Jahren Realität ist, hat Nordkorea erst vor einigen Tagen das erste Mal bestätigt: einen Corona-Ausbruch. Kim Jong Un, Diktator des international isolierten Landes, kündigte Lockdowns an und rief seine Behörden zu strikten Abriegelungsmaßnahmen auf. Wie es zu dem plötzlichen Ausbruch kommen konnte, weiß Nordkorea-Experte Rüdiger Frank. Der Leiter des Instituts für Ostasienwissenschaften an der Uni Wien erklärt außerdem, ob der Corona-Ausbruch auch die internationale Gemeinschaft betrifft. Die Deutsche Umwelthilfe (DUH) hat mehrere Unternehmen wegen Greenwashing abgemahnt. Die Abmahnungen richten sich zum Beispiel gegen Werbung für "CO₂-neutrales" Motoröl. Wie die Konzerne auf die Abmahnungen der DUH reagiert haben, berichtet ZEIT-Redakteurin Hannah Knuth. Sie hat zusammen mit der ZEIT-Reporterin Astrid Geisler zu dem Thema recherchiert und erklärt, wie hoch die Chancen der Deutschen Umwelthilfe sind, mit ihren Abmahnungen Erfolg zu haben. Außerdem im Update: Die Weltwetterorganisation (WMO) hat ihren Klimazustandsbericht für das Jahr 2021 veröffentlicht. Demnach hat der Anstieg der Meeresspiegel, die Versauerung der Meere und die Konzentration von Treibhausgasen in der Atmosphäre neue Höchststände erreicht. Auch António Guterres, Generalsekretär der Vereinten Nationen, zeigt sich aufgrund der Entwicklungen wenig optimistisch: "Der heute veröffentlichte Bericht über den Zustand des Klimas ist eine düstere Litanei des Versagens der Menschheit bei der Bewältigung des Klimawandels."
