Why We Need to Quit Coal

"In nineteen forty eight. The british politician emmanuel shin well appeal to people to avoid wasting coal. But just as i am asking the minor but a greater effort to give you the coal you need. I also asked uses fuel at work and at home to burn coal catholic and to avoid way then cole was seen as key to a prosperous future Now seen as a means to a hotter and deadlier one it accounts for nearly half of the global energy systems carbon dioxide emissions this week a united nations report laid out how coal use must be drastically reduced. If there's any hope of reaching the paris agreements target of limiting warming to one point five or two degrees above pre industrial levels the un secretary general antonio gutierrez urged the world to get rid of it. It is time to put a price on carbon to phase out fossil fuel finance and then fossil fuel subsidies to stop building new coal power plants and co power financing domestically and overseas the report this week from the united nations and a group of international climate. Researchers laid out how difficult it might be to meet of these targets. Charlotte howard is the economists energy and commodities editor. So to meet the one point five degree target coal use would have to drop by eleven percent each year for the next decade to meet two degrees would require coal demand to drop by seven percent. That's about the same decline that we are expected to see this year and twenty twenty which was really a historic bad year for coal amid a global pandemic and so that lays out just how hard it is to achieve these goals but even safe the knowledge that it is a terrible fuel. It is still widely in use right. What what is the the global picture of coal consumption look like well. This has been a really interesting year because in some ways it has eliminated both the progress being made against coal as well as illuminated. Just how tricky. It's going to be to get rid of it. In parts of the world in the west and in europe you've seen coal under consistent pressure due to this combination of factors that are mutually reinforcing from government policy which promotes renewables investors becoming increasingly wary of stranded assets and the risk of investing in coal. As well as really good alternatives to call in america this wave of natural gas that was unleashed by fracking. Helped retire a lot of coal plants and now the cost of renewables have declined by so much that in most of the west new solar new wind is actually less expensive than coal from existing. Coal fired power plants so caused really struggling to compete. And the question is how you can start to drive down coal and other parts of the world where it continues to grow if co falls in the west but rises in asia which already counts for three quarters of coal consumption. You're gonna blaze right past the goals of the paris. Climate agreement and yet the question around fossil fuels more generally has been developing economies can essentially catch up to the west without making those same mistakes while while the west is taking. Its foot off the gas as it were. It's worth remembering that american europe. Of course their own economic development was powered by coal and that even now coal consumption per person in india which is the world's second largest coal consumer is less than half the coal consumption per person in america. And so there's this question of. Why should we limit our own economic growth and limit access to a cheap and reliable form of electric city and so you see countries starting to reckon with this trying to find ways both to meet their climate targets as well as continued to support rapid growth. But you say that. Asia is sort of central to to this equation and yet even china for example is is making very ambitious promises about zero carbon output. That's right you saw decision. Paying set out a goal of carbon neutrality by twenty sixty in september and that is a really big deal. China accounts for more than half of all the world's coal consumption. It is the world's largest emitter so having that level of political commitment from government that essentially controlled is very important and the question is how soon china may act to set in motion plans towards limiting its emissions. There are few really key documents that are coming up. So china's five year plan will be published next year that could include a net cap on coal. Which would allow new installations of coal plants. Only as they replace older ones that are more polluting and then also by the end of december china has to make a fresh pledge to fight emissions under the terms of the paris climate agreement of two thousand fifteen. So i think we'll get some more clear direction soon but it's part to overstate just how important it is to think about china and coal just because of how large the emissions are will. That's the story for china. But you you said. Asia more generally is really the the big piece of this puzzle. Some of the forces that are helping to drive down coal in the west don't fully apply in asia and that's largely because of the degree of government intervention. Obviously in china you have state backed coal companies elsewhere in asia to you have governments that are involved either and owning national electricity companies in india coal. India limited is the state-backed coal company. That is the world's largest coal miner. There's a very difficult political challenge. Which is that. The interests of the state and the interests of the coal industry are very closely intertwined and so even when private capital begins to fall away from coal you can have public support for it and that means that it can be more challenging to make this transition. That in parts of america are parts of europe so with all that in mind then. What prospects do you think for reaching the targets that are laid out in this week's u report. I think there are a few really promising things that have happened. One is just this extraordinary decline of coal fired. Power in the west shows that it is possible. Five years ago. Coal accounted for about a third of britain's electricity generation and in the second quarter of this year accounted for zero point five percent. The other thing is that in the five years since the paris agreement you seen real progress on a number of levels you've seen market forces evolved such that renewables really are competitive in much of the world. Even some middle income countries like indonesia where coal is still technically cheaper than renewables. You've also seen a really big ramp up in commitment from global leaders not just xi jinping but india's government has set very aggressive targets for renewables. Of course you have now. In the form of joe biden someone who really views climate as a key part of his presidency. He signalled his commitment to fighting climate. Change the appointment of john. Kerry's climates are and. I think that having the person who was america's seniormost diplomat a secretary of state during barack obama's presidency is important signaling to the world that a new round of leadership on climate is coming and one of the most important tasks in thinking about climate. Diplomacy is how to encourage this shift away from coal and that includes how to support those who suffer from the shift the workers of course also some of the patients that have vested interests in call.

"Ellen Miller directs the news literacy project. You're just outside. Washington DC welcome. Good to be with. You hope you are staying safe of during all of these difficult times, so let's just take a moment for our listeners. Who maybe didn't join us the last time you and I spoke? Tell us what the news literacy project is. How you work with students and people can believe what you're telling them right now. The News Literacy project is a national educational nonprofit that produces resources and empowers. Eaters to teach middle and high school students how to know what news and information to trust, and to give them an appreciation of the vital role, the First Amendment and a free press in democracy. Our goal is to give students. The tools to be informed. Engage participants in the country civic life. We are rigorously nonpartisan. We have a commitment to. Forty transparency and accountability and. To, giving the next generation, the tools to fully and effectively participate in the country civic life so Allen. Misinformation is not something real new. It's always seemed to exist. Sometimes we call it propaganda Sometimes it's just plain misinformation or disinformation for a lot of different purposes. It feels like a bigger deal today in society. Why is that well? In fact, we're living in the most of complex information landscape in human history. We have more verifiable and credible information available to US literally at our fingertips than ever before, but it is being overwhelmed by a Sioux Nami of misinformation that seeks to mislead US exploited US and divide us, young people today are inheriting an information ecosystem created by another generation that did not fully foresee just how it would unfold. Therefore, we feel we have a responsibility to give them the tools to successfully navigate this landscape in a way that can bring us together around their fireable agreed upon facts. Why Teaching News Literacy is in an essential life skill today the World Health Organization has in addition to declaring this pandemic. Declare something called an Info democ problems with information. Can you talk a little bit about what what an Info Democ might be and how we can live through that, too? Yes, so the World Health Organization coined the term in for democ to refer to the overwhelming and rapidly evolving amount of information, including a torrent of misinformation about the corona virus outbreak fact more recently united, Nations Secretary General Antonio Gutierrez went further, and he called this dangerous epidemic. Epidemic of misinformation, a poison that is putting lives at risk full statement. How can we is consumers of news and sure we're reading real news and not looking at fake information or manipulated images video. The responsibility really is on the consumer to be vigilant in checking what we're seeing, and particularly what we're sharing to make sure it's credible. There are some really basic concepts that I think we can all apply The first thing is to pause. Pause to look at what we're seeing in to check our emotions. Is this something that is provoking anger or fear or amazement? When information causes that kind of response, it makes us particularly vulnerable to manipulation, then examined the source take a moment to do a quick search on the person or the organization to see what else they they have created, and whether they are credible. Check replies and comments anything. You're looking at to see if they confirm. Confirm or debunk what you're viewing. We generally would say find a wide variety of credible news sources with different points of view to consume and follow and follow a story over time don't take I source that you that you see and share it particularly. If you're uncertain, do not share it, and then finally used readily available online tools like Google reverse image, searching or fact, checking sites like fat, check, fact or slopes. If, there's something that you're uncertain about. You've talked a little bit about ways to sort of down and how people can try to determine what's what's true or false? Are there particular sources that people should be able to realize I? Mean I guess we should we be giving credence to government sources over private sources, or should we what are what are some of the more detailed nuances that people can look at to help them? Make up their mind well, certainly in the context of the pandemic there are sources that went to public health sources. The World Health Organization the CDC Of Public Health Agencies One can certainly look for you know fact, base credible news sources at the end of the day I mean it's incumbent upon all of us to not only search for credible sources, but to push back against those who are sharing things that misinform because the virus itself is a kind of hard and immutable truth, and it is impervious to spin or falsehoods or magical thinking. So I think the only effective way that we can combat. It is with science and fax and hard truths, and in this respect to we're all in this together.

UN: Libya's warring sides have agreed to restart peace talks

"The UN says Libya's warring factions have agreed to resume ceasefire talks follows days of heavy fighting in and around the capital Tripoli. Well, let's get more on this now with Mary Fitzgerald. Who is a research on Libya? Welcome back to the briefing Mary. Could you explain to listeners where we've got? Because there's been so many attempts to bring around some reconciliation? We have two warring parties here. The renegade leader, a half Dr who's oddly backed by many regional powers up against the forces in Tripoli, but just explain where we're on why there is potentially an opportunity for change. Well I would be very wary about even that ten am. And certainly there's a lot of skepticism on the ground amongst on radio bands about the these latest s statements from the U N various internationals and skepticism. That is warranted. This! Particular war. It's a war over the capital. Tripoli Started in April last year, when how star at launch offensive to capture at AAA from the. UN recognized a government on the very day that UN Secretary General Antonio Gutierrez was to try if impetus to the UN political process, that political process is something. Half Star has tried to undermine at every juncture for several years now, and he didn't capture the capital despite. Promising his Libyan supporters and also external backers that he would be able to seize the capital within days or weeks, and with little bloodshed, and here we are over year later with. Thousands, dead, and hundreds of thousands, said displaced as a result of of this conflict, so this latest burst of up talk about negotiations comes as after has experienced a series of losses in recent months. He's lost control of a number of. Small towns in western Libya, but more importantly Anne. He has lost a key asset airbase in Western, Nubia, from which he he used that to to launch attacks. The capital so after is not just. Facing a failing offensive, he's also really am on the back foot and. Some of his forces have have retreated in recent weeks including a whole host of Russian mercenaries who've been finding him, so that's the background to this. Clearly, after feels his his in a corner, his backers, no doubt the UA at primarily also Egypt Saudi, Arabia and Russia and also clearly are in a bit of a pickle in terms of of the way forward here so this To restart talks aimed at reaching a lasting ceasefire. Talks that have been suspended for for the last three months, that was a an earlier burst at the beginning of the year brokered by Russia and Turkey Turkey being back our backer rather of the. The internationally recognized government that hostile his trying to unseat. They basically. Created a momentum earlier this year that led to those initial and talks, but this is very stop start and the reason there is a lot of skepticism on the ground in Libya is Libyans have seen so many times before promises about, and it goes stations to agree a ceasefire, and they ultimately breakdown, and and we're still in the middle of this grinding stalemated war. War A married Tummy. If people. In Tripoli, the capital is is life kind of taking on in an okay way. We know that they have a battle to deal with corona virus as well which is is very difficult to deal with when you're being besieged on your outskirts. How is the city functioning at this time as the city that you know personally very well? Well, my my last trip was in December and at that point that was a lot of trepidation. amongst residents of AAA that the war could move closer and closer to the center of the city while we've seen happened in recent weeks. Is that there has been an increase in targeting off Just at the weekend, seven people were killed. When there was shelling on a popular picnic spot, right in the center of. The U. N. and international human rights organizations subset most of these civilian debts, most of this indiscriminate shelling. Is attributable to to his forces. There is a belief on the ground in Tripoli that. These attacks are being done as a kind of a revenge or out of frustration, because basically run, and his forces are not getting what they want on top of all of that. Yes, covid nineteen has made an appearance in in in Libya. There have been hundreds of cases as been recently been a spurt of cases in southern Libya, but this of course has made things all the more challenging for for ordinary Libyans what we've seen in some. Positive way in in the last couple of days is the return of some of those thousands of people have been displaced over the last year as a result of the war, some of them are returning to their homes, but there returning also to. Some residential areas where landmines have been planted just today Human Rights Watch issued a report basically accusing after his forces of. Planting landmines across territory that they were in around Tripoli. Particularly residential areas are reapproach. Is it a a an amazing update on this story? We need come back to you more clearly on another show, but Mary thank you for joining, and that was the Libya expert. Mary fits General Gerald and you're listening to the briefing monocle.

Climate Summit Ends in 'Disappointment'

"History's longest ever United Nations. Climate Conference ended ended yesterday with very little to show for delegates from almost two hundred nations postponed a decision on global carbon markets until next year one thing that became clear in this conference. If it wasn't clear already is that there's a real disagreement between developed and emerging countries on what to do about climate change. UN Secretary General L.. Antonio Gutierrez called the outcome disappointing and he referred to it as a missed opportunity. Let's talk about this more with Colina harasha cough. WHO joins us from Madrid via skype she? Here's politico Europe's climate emissions and energy reporter. Welcome to the program Good Morning. So why why was there. No real deal here at all while you're ready set before it was a it was a difficult cop. I mean you're saying disappointment. All around I think one thing that it showed his first of all all that tackling climate change in reducing emissions is a very difficult thing and the last two weeks you could tell how countries where facing off with each other about how to do that and how much they wanna be required to do that and I think that player usual. Why the last two weeks? So what is the divide that Noel just mentioned between developed and emerging countries. How is it that they see the world differently? Well we need to go back a bit. About what the parents have you ever been really did. The Paris agreement was meant to ensure that every country not just the rich Shen industrialized nations but every country would say yes. We will do something to battle climate change now. The challenge is of course that industrialized nations just like the U. The block the European Union as well as the US and others. They've been driving up emissions over last decades now emerging economies that China India and others. They say well. We'll still growing so let us grown Lewis do our economic development and care for people. Oh they're still saying wait a minute. It's our turn to pollute salute. We get a turn to pollute just like you had no not really because they did agree to the Paris agreement so everybody said yes. We have to fight climate change but now the question is who has to do more to fight it over the next years and that's where the challenge comes in because of course looking at the emissions data and many countries that will drive emissions in the future sure are emerging economies. And so now just as we are on the eve of the Paris Agreement taking force in twenty twenty we see that battle playing out and then of course I global geopolitics and very difficult international environment. Don't help because the UN after all is is a reflection of I mean it's the club of countries and so even climate conference. It's larger politics at play. Of course the United States pulled out of the Paris Agreement and has taken a very different view of climate change the reality of climate change under president trump. How has that affected negotiations? Couldn't you can feel that the. US is no longer her there. as you will remember the the. US is the US in China that corporation before the Paris agreement was crucial with the US. Gun At least. He's like the big administration ambig- administration the muscle being gone.

"NPR news. This is all things considered. I'm Mary Louise Kelley, and I'm Ari Shapiro. A Congolese OBGYN and a woman who was once held captive by ISIS are now winners of the Nobel peace prize. The million dollar award goes to them for their fight against sexual violence during wartime UN secretary General Antonio Gutierrez praised the pair today as defenders of human dignity. These prices recognizes countless victims around the world, we have too often been stigmatized heathen, and forgotten as NPR psoriatic Nelson reports the Nobel committee's choice this year was also a nod to the metoo movement. This year's winners are Dr deneen mcquaid who is renowned for his treatment of gang rape victims in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Nadia Murad, a former ISIS sex slave from the ziti religious minority in Iraq who campaigns for survivors, like herself Barrett rice Anderson who chairs the Norwegian Nobel committee that hands out the prize praised the pair for. Shining a spotlight on wartime. Rape, we want to send out a message of awareness that women who constitute half of the population in most communities actually used as a weapon of war and that they need protection. And that's the curb traitors have to be prosecuted and held responsible for their actions. We believe that this is a fundamental prerequisite for lasting peace to also include the rights and the awareness of women. But speaking out comes at a price mcquaid told NPR's tell me more in November twenty thirteen gunman tried killing him and his family in their home a year earlier, I my tough. Of course, we fest danger. One hour must was abducted and before being released. The sixty three year old is the founder of a hospital and the Democratic Republic of Congo were armed groups have clashed for. Decades, mcquaid gay has treated thousands of survivors of wartime sexual violence. Most of the time. Czar rejected by our family is directed by the communities of caused by ties. So we have a problem with colleges social assitant on had big women had them to be enough Trump's ecologically before to treat them physically. Fellow-laureate Nadia Murad is one of about three thousand years ziti, women and girls who were raped and abused by ISIS fighters Murad managed to escape her captors after three months two years ago at the age of twenty three she was named the UN's first. Goodwill ambassador for the dignity of survivors of human trafficking. Very much. Told the UN Hannah last November that testifying against ISIS militants in courts in Iraq in Europe. And seeing them brought to Justice has brought hope to victims like herself. She is the seventeenth woman to receive the Nobel peace prize in its hundred seventeen year history. Dan Smith of the Stockholm International Peace Research institute, says he's pleased with the Nobel committee's selection, you call a very emotive the nation. Oh woman who survived the most appalling atrocity under the man who works to help women so five most trusted. It's a great match. The committee's choice is being linked to the attention fostered by the metoo movement. Meanwhile, Nobel literature prize is being awarded this year by the Swedish Academy due to a sex abuse scandal involving the husband of one of that committee's members JEAN CLAUDE Arnaud was sentenced in Stockholm this week to two years in prison for rape psoriasis. Or how do you Nelson NPR news Berlin? Okay. If you went looking to trace the arc of this MU to moment, we are living through you'd be hard pressed to come up with better book ends than the following today. The US Senate voting to cut off debate on Brett Kavanagh's nomination to the supreme court and move to a final vote despite allegations of sexual assault in his past and one year ago to the day with the New York Times broke a bombshell story. The times headline on October fifth twenty seventeen read Harvey Weinstein paid off sexual harassment accusers for decades, one of the two reporters who broke that Weinstein story was Jodi Kantor, and she joins me now. Hey there. Hi. How are you? I'm well. Thank you start here. You just tweeted out today a picture of what you were up to a year ago today. And it's it's a bunch of you all crowded round of the computer in the New York Times newsroom about to hit send on the Weinstein story. And you right. None of us knew what was going to happen. When we sent that out into the world. We didn't my. Partner. Megan twohey, and I we certainly felt the power of the story as we were reporting it and because the times was doing bigger investigations of sexual harassment. We knew that this was part of a system, and it wasn't just about Harvey Weinstein. We were reporting on Delo Riley. We were reporting on Ford factory workers bat. You never know. What's going to happen to an investigation? What it's when it's published and know one of our editors Matt party like to say as we were working on it. He said Harvey Weinstein is not that famous, and that's true aside from New York and LA, and maybe DC he really was not a household name. And and what we've seen happen is that not only did the metoo movement which was founded years ago by Toronto Burke takeoff globally, but it just kept going and going and going there were so many times in the past year when I saw predictions that this was going to burn out or the women were all than a similar town or the news was finally going to stop and. It never did. And what's happening with judge Cavanaugh? I think is Representative of that. There's a feeling that this reckoning only continues and grows bigger. Let me ask you this. If Cavanaugh is confirmed with a full Senate vote this weekend. Do you see that as a setback to the momentum of me too? I think if he's confirmed there will be massive debate about what this means for the me too movement. And I think there are two contradictory answers both of which probably have some validity. I'll give you the pro and con the obvious one. Is that people will say this is a setback. He was confirmed. Anyway. These really serious allegations of sexual assault. Didn't matter. Women were ignored yet. Again. This is a replay of Anita. Hell the other argument. However is that what especially what Dr Christine blassie four did was really important that she spoke up in front of the entire country. She put high school on the table, right? She made a case that these things that that happened in our collective youth. Do you have a bearing on the presence, and we also saw moments like with the two protesters in the elevator with Jeff flake where they were able to literally stop the national conversation for a second and say listen to these stories. One footnote to this conversation before I let you go. Jodi, we just heard there from our reporter psoriasis hardy Nelson that today also marks the award of the Nobel peace prize prize that is often seen as sending a political message and the award went to people working to stop sexual violence as a weapon of war. I wonder if that's one more book, and if you like to the global scope of this me too moment that you helped set in motion a year ago, I woke up to the same news and had the same side. I think it's a reminder of scale, I think it's a reminder of the global reach that. And also, maybe a reminder perspective at a moment when we are all so immersed in the cavenaugh news. Maybe this is a reminder that this topic is is even bigger than that in a way Jodi Kantor, she broke the Harvey Weinstein story for the New York Times one year ago.

Yet received the regular budget that's. What's killing the United Nations, they're running out of money And of course he did take a shot at the United States he took a shot at Trump he said, other countries mimic the, US and what they hear from.

Closest ally Israel That there that right there that alone There is, no nation On the. Face of the earth That the United Nations goes out of its way to attack More than the great state of Israel That Alone It's my whole The Trump administration has been threatening threatening in threatening to. Cut off aid It would be my hope that there is serious intention Behind these threats The Trump administration often threatens to do things and then doesn't follow through I think. It would be good wise in healthy to follow through with the UN To make it clear to the UN That things have to change That the UN can't be introducing, resolution after resolution after resolution condemning Israel constantly on a regular basis and that the United, Nations needs to recognize evil And that the United Nations, can't put Member States who have no concept of human rights and their human rights commission These things are silly these things are dangerous Eight.
