If you're confused about China's stance on the use of coal, well, you're definitely not alone. This week, China went on a global coal buying binge in a frantic effort to put a stop to rolling blackouts that have afflicted millions of residents, factories, and businesses in at least nine provinces over the past several weeks.But just two weeks earlier, President Xi Jinping told everyone at the United Nations General Assembly that Beijing planned to phase out the use of dirty fuels as part of an ambitious effort to reach peak carbon dioxide emissions before 2030. And the President also said his government would halt the building of new coal-fired power plants abroad.So, China is doubling down on coal at home while abandoning the dirty fuel abroad?Rishikesh Ram Bhandary, assistant director of Boston University's Global Economic Governance Initiative and a leading expert on renewable energy in BRI countries joins Eric & Cobus to discuss the complex, confusing role that coal plays in Chinese energy policy.SHOW NOTES:The Journal of Energy Research and Social Science: Banking on coal?

Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan set the cat among the pigeons on September 25 when he said people living along the tribal belt in his country had affinity with the Taliban not because of their religious identity but because of Pashtun nationalism. He claimed that Pakistani Pashtuns had affinities and sympathy with the Afghan Taliban. Mohsin Dawar, a member of Pakistan's National Assembly from North Waziristan, responded in a tweet. Quote: “Just shocked at how the PM of Pakistan can describe Taliban as Pashtun nationalists. The Taliban is a project of Pakistan's generals for decimating Pashtun nationalism”. Unquote.

In August, the United Nations General Assembly moved to create a Permanent Forum on People of African Descent. There was pushback. Yet, on an international level, the demand for a reckoning with anti-Blackness reverberates around the world. Advocates know learning about the African Diaspora, histories of anti-Blackness and the need for reparations is more important than ever.Consider this: The British government paid the equivalent of 17 billion pounds (in today's currency) to compensate slave owners for the lost capital associated with abolition. These reparations debts by the British government to slaveowners and their descendants were paid off in 2015.  How does this hidden history fit into contemporary discourse about global slavery, Black Lives Matter, civil rights and more?  We're diving right in with a very special guest:Dr. Amara Enyia, a public policy expert and strategist. She is also the managing director of Diaspora Rising, a transnational advocacy organization working on issues of concern to the Global Black Diaspora around the world.  Rate and review “On the Issues with Michele Goodwin" to let us know what you think of the show!

His father, Giorgio, was a lawyer, editor, and eventually a member of the Italian Chamber of Deputies. His mother, Giuditta, was very involved in Catholic Action. After ordination in 1920, Giovanni did graduate studies in literature, philosophy, and canon law in Rome before he joined the Vatican Secretariat of State in 1924, where he worked for 30 years. He was also chaplain to the Federation of Italian Catholic University Students, where he met and became a very good friend of Aldo Moro, who eventually became prime minister. Moro was kidnapped by the Red Brigade in March 1978, and murdered two months later. A devastated Pope Paul VI presided at his funeral. In 1954, Fr. Montini was named archbishop of Milan, where he sought to win disaffected workers back to the Catholic Church. He called himself the “archbishop of the workers” and visited factories regularly while overseeing the rebuilding of a local Church tremendously disrupted by World War II. In 1958, Montini was the first of 23 cardinals named by Pope John XXIII, two months after the latter's election as pope. Cardinal Montini helped in preparing Vatican II and participated enthusiastically in its first sessions. When he was elected pope in June 1963, he immediately decided to continue that Council, which had another three sessions before its conclusion on December 8, 1965. The day before Vatican II concluded, Paul VI and Patriarch Athenagoras revoked the excommunications that their predecessors had made in 1054. The pope worked very hard to ensure that bishops would approve the Council's 16 documents by overwhelming majorities. Paul VI had stunned the world by visiting the Holy Land in January 1964, and meeting Athenagoras, the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople in person. The pope made eight more international trips, including one in 1965, to visit New York City and speak on behalf of peace before the United Nations General Assembly. He also visited India, Columbia, Uganda, and seven Asian countries during a 10-day tour in 1970. Also in 1965, he instituted the World Synod of Bishops, and the next year decreed that bishops must offer their resignations on reaching age 75. In 1970, he decided that cardinals over 80 would no longer vote in papal conclaves or head the Holy See's major offices. He had increased the number of cardinals significantly, giving many countries their first cardinal. Eventually establishing diplomatic relations between the Holy See and 40 countries, he also instituted a permanent observer mission at the United Nations in 1964. Paul VI wrote seven encyclicals; his last one in 1968 on human life—Humanae Vitae—prohibited artificial birth control. Pope Paul VI died at Castel Gandolfo on August 6, 1978, and was buried in St. Peter's Basilica. He was beatified on October 19, 2014, and canonized on October 14, 2018. Reflection Pope Saint Paul's greatest accomplishment was the completion and implementation of Vatican II. Its decisions about liturgy were the first ones noticed by most Catholics, but its other documents—especially the ones about ecumenism, interfaith relations, divine revelation, religious liberty, the Church's self-understanding and the Church's work with the entire human family—have become the Catholic Church's road map since 1965.

Joe Biden challenged critics who contend that democracy is in retreat while Xi Jinping warned "the world is once again at a historical crossroads" and pushed back on a U.S.-led international order.And there's a lot at stake for developing countries in Africa and elsewhere in this debate as both major powers seek to align others to their worldview. In Washington, D.C., there's a widespread perception that Beijing is increasingly using technology, money, and ideological influence to spread authoritarianism around the world to better strengthen its geopolitical position.Charles Edel and David Shullman, two leading U.S. China analysts laid out the challenge in an article published in the current edition of Foreign Affairs where they detail "China's international efforts to subvert democracy." Charles and David join Eric & Cobus from Washington to discuss the threat they think China presents and how policymakers should respond.JOIN THE DISCUSSION:CAP on Facebook: www.facebook.com/ChinaAfricaProjectTwitter: @eolander | @stadenesque | @charlesedel | @davidshullmanSUBSCRIBE TO THE CHINA AFRICA PROJECTYour subscription supports independent journalism.

The 76th United Nations General Assembly began on Tuesday, September 21 and controversy has already begun as world leaders addressed the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic, the strain placed upon the global economy, Afghanistan falling to the Taliban, and tensions between the U.S. and China. President Biden spoke at the UNGA and did not call out China, instead calling for international unity and cooperation to overcome the pandemic and climate crisis. Fox News Senior Correspondent Eric Shawn joins us from the U.N. to discuss the criticism of President Biden's speech, the Taliban's push for UN recognition of their Afghanistan leadership amid human rights abuses and how the U.S. is mending a rift with France after a controversial sale of submarines to Australia. Eric Shawn also details how Iran pushed to restart nuclear talks, the UNGA's central theme of climate change, and the COVID-19 issues that arose from a lack of vaccination requirements.   Facebook is under fire after a recent Wall Street Journal investigation revealed that the company has been shielding high-profile users from content moderation guidelines most users must abide by. Reportedly, regulations that would ban content for the average user have been essentially ignored for celebrities, politicians, and other elites on the platform due to Facebook's “cross check” system. On top of the revelations from the recent Facebook Files, shareholders have now filed lawsuits alleging Facebook and the government engaged in a “quid pro quo”  The lawsuits accuse Facebook of overpaying $5 billion dollars on a fine from the FTC in an attempt to protect CEO Mark Zuckerberg from personal liability from the infamous Cambridge Analytica leak. Fox Business Network Financial Correspondent Jackie DeAngelis joins to break down how Facebook's cross check system works and the ways that the company has adjusted its social media regulations and practices throughout the pandemic. She also takes a look back at the Cambridge Analytica scandal of 2015 and how the lawsuit alleging quid pro quo may play out.   Plus, commentary from Pastor Robert Jeffress of the Dallas First Baptist Church.

President Joe Biden made his first speech appearance at the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday, Sept. 21. As predicted, it was wrought with world collectivism and the predictable blame game. Meanwhile, Americans are still waiting on a response from Biden regarding the border crisis with thousands of Haitian migrants, the Pentagon's admittance that it killed seven children in the drone strike in Afghanistan, the failure to get the booster shot to the general population, and the recall of France's ambassador from Washington, D.C.

Thousands of Haitians and other migrants have been camped under the International Bridge in Del Rio, Texas. Amid the surge at the Texas border, the Biden administration said it is increasing the number of deportation flights to Haiti and resources to the area. President Biden on Tuesday pledged to get the situation "under control" following his speech at the United Nations General Assembly. Meanwhile, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas insisted that the U.S. borders are closed during a Senate Homeland Security Committee hearing. Former Acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf joins to discuss the recent migrant surge and what would needed to be done to actually get the border under control. He also weighs in on the photo of a mounted Border Patrol agent allegedly whipping a migrant.   On Tuesday, September 21st. U.S. Senators were able to speak with top U.S. national security officials - FBI Director Christopher Wray, National Counterterrorism Director Christine Abizaid, and DHS Secretary Mayorkas - about how terror threats to the U.S. have evolved over the last 20 years. Many senators cited Afghanistan as the main potential source of terror, with the U.S. already experiencing suicide-bomb attacks from ISIS-K during the military withdrawal military from Afghanistan. Fox News Congressional Correspondent Aishah Hasnie covered the Senate hearing and joined to explain how the testimony revealed the risk ISIS-K and al-Qaeda now pose to the United States, how the recent U.S. drone strike suggested a failure of America's "over the horizon" capabilities and the need for intelligence to assess terror risk from Afghanistan. Hasnie also spoke about how allies in Afghanistan are frustrated and unsure as a result of the U.S. evacuation process and how women in Afghanistan have had their way of life turned upside down now that the Taliban has assumed control.   Plus, commentary by Fox News contributor Liz Peek.
