  Why green initiatives count as infrastructure, from Biden's top climate officials Biden officials say the infrastructure of the future depends on defeating climate change. Republicans are focused on roads and bridges.On a Thursday afternoon press call, the Biden administration's top climate officials made their case for why climate initiatives belong in an infrastructure package.

A 'Group of Friends' including Russia, China and a host of others have united to call out America's decades-long disregard for the core founding principle of the United Nations : maintaining international peace and security. Thus, Article 1, Section 1 of the governing document of the United Nations – the UN Charter – states that, prime amongst the purposes of the United Nations is “[t]o maintain international peace and security, and to that end: to take effective collective measures for the prevention and removal of threats to the peace, and for the suppression of acts of aggression or other.

The Governmental bill endorses the existing, since the government had forced out Air France to renounce the relevant links for financial support in May 2020. It will prohibit competitors from rushing into the breach. "We chose (the train threshold) 2h30 because 4 hours it comes to dry up territories often landed as the Grand Massif Central ... It would be unfairly iniqued in the Equity of the Territories," said the Minister Delegate to Transport John -Baptiste djebari.

The US has a chance fix its broken climate risk disclosure system

  The US has a chance fix its broken climate risk disclosure system If companies ignore their vulnerability to climate change, the global economy is at risk.Financial regulators in the US are grappling with that question now. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) opened a 90-day public comment period in March that will inform the first update to federal climate risk disclosure guidelines in a decade. Shareholder groups and asset managers like BlackRock (CEO Larry Fink wrote in February that “climate risk is investment risk”) are pressuring boardrooms to improve corporate transparency around climate risks.

The National Assembly is scheduled to pass an anti-corruption law during the monthlong session, which ends Nov. 30. The draft law , which would replace a current anti-corruption decree, requires increased transparency among government agencies and requires officials to declare their assets. The assembly is also expected to approve a series of laws on investment, intellectual property and environmental protection as part of legal reforms required to join the World Trade Organization.

"In terms of why people are in no hurry to get vaccinated, it seems to me that this is one of our national characteristics," the spokesman said. "There are still many people who are very suspicious of vaccines in general." However, he added, Putin's decision last week to roll up his sleeve to receive one of three Russian-made formulas that have been shown to protect against coronavirus may turn the tide of public opinion. "I think his example will add some dynamism to the whole process," Peskov said. "It is necessary to significantly strengthen the promotion of vaccination in the good sense of the word."

Due to the COVID, "we have a very bad sector," the Modem Nicolas Turquois, a member of the majority.

Ecologists and inserts for a threshold at 4 hours

Conversely, ecologists and inshore pleaded to return to the initial proposal of the Citizen Climate Convention, with the threshold of 4 hours. Mathilde Panot (LFI) criticized "the empty article" of the current bill. A 4 hour threshold would eliminate the "most emitting" lines of greenhouse gases like Paris-Nice, Paris-Toulouse and Paris-Marseille, insisted Danièle Obono (LFI).

A decree should specify the measure and any other lines likely to be concerned like Paris-Rennes or Lyon-Marseille. The bill also provides for gradual carbon offset of domestic flights - Air France already applies it - and the prohibition of expanding airport facilities for expropriation if they lead to an increase in emissions.
