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.

Climate Liability Lawsuits Could Help With Costs Of Adapting To A Hotter Earth

"In New York world leaders attended a United Nations summit on Climate Change. UN Secretary General Antonio Gutierrez opened the meeting by challenge in in countries to make bold plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions immediately. We can do it limiting warming to one point. Five degrees is still possible receivable but it will require fundamental transformations in all aspects of society. Are we gonNA food use Lens fool our transport what's and followed economies all of that to put the brakes on greenhouse gas emissions and beyond debating a plan some are also beginning to wrestle with a big question who is responsible people for the effects of global warming. NPR's Rebecca Hersher reports that a growing number of lawsuits seek to answer that question there about a dozen significant lawsuits against oil companies companies in the US right now. My goldberger runs the Saban Center for Climate Change Law at Columbia University. All of these lawsuits have been filed in the last couple of years. There's the one filed by the state of Rhode Island against twenty-one companies including Exxon. BP Shell and Chevron there are the cases filed by the cities of San Francisco Oakland and Baltimore and by San Miguel in Boulder County Colorado and in each case the city or state or county is suing one or more fossil fuel companies over the impacts of climate change. It's a wide range of impacts many of the lawsuits do focus on sea level rise and coastal storms but it also includes drought wildfire flooding in Colorado. The lawsuits alleged that the oil companies should help pay for the cost of dealing with all of that now in the future because the cases allege oil oil companies have known for a long time that burning fossil fuels causes global warming in an email to NPR spokesperson for the main oil industry trade group wrote in part that the industry is quote actively addressing the complex global challenges climate change through robust investments in technology innovation efficiency improvements and cleaner fuels rules. Berger says the suits are somewhat similar to pass cases brought against other industries. The comparison that most people are most familiar with is the comparison to tobacco the massive tobacco settlement hinged on similar legal arguments that tobacco companies were partially responsible for the harm caused by cigarettes. Other industries have faced similar suits. It's with a variety of outcomes lead paint a specis gun an opioid manufacturers in fact this is the second wave of climate change suits against oil companies a previous set of cases in the early two thousands failed. Berger says something key has changed in the intervening years the science the ability to attribute attribute particular impacts to climate change has vastly improved as climate models have gotten more sophisticated and as climate change itself has gotten more present doesn't in our daily lives the connection between say destructive hurricanes and the warming earth has gotten easier to argue and climate related lawsuits are showing up in other parts the world two cases in the Netherlands France and India have all looked the legal system to require companies and governments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and then there's the argument that climate change is a human rights issue good morning everyone. My name is Maryelle chick CBA Khasan. I'm the research nurse in November of last year representatives from the Human Rights Commission of the Philippines sat in a room in London and listen to people tell their stories of surviving the massive typhoons that hit that country one after another in recent years but Kasan recounted how her family survived Typhoon Haiyan in two thousand thirteen my grandmother everyone was just praying.

The inquiry relied on the same team underlying climate science as recent lawsuits have researched that connects fossil fuel companies to the effects of climate change including stronger tropical storms and although the commission is not itself illegal body. Its final report later this year. We'll still carry weight explains Burger. The most important thing that could come out of it is is a declaration of violation of human rights and you know that's a powerful thing. Nobody wants to be accused of being human rights violator. It's one piece of a nascent nascent push to change the business models of the world's fossil fuel companies and as climate science gets more sophisticated and climate change is ever more present in the lives lives of average people that pressure is likely to keep increasing Rebecca Hersher N._p._R.

I'm Anthony Davis millions of people people are demonstrating to demand action on climate change in scores of cities around the world including hotbeds of the environmental movement such as London in New York San Francisco and Seattle many groups are involved in organizing the strikes including schoolchildren trade unions environmental groups and employees at large tech companies such as Amazon and Google and that demands are all similar reducing the use of fossil fuels to try to halt also climate change Australia saw some of the first protests kickoff this morning with organizers estimating that upwards of three hundred thousand students and workers carr's filled the streets of Melbourne Sydney and other cities in the biggest protests. The country has seen in years. New Delhi India one of the world's most polluted titties so dozens of students environmental activists chant we want climate action while hundreds marched in Thailand's capital Bangkok before staging a die in outside the Ministry of Natural Resources in London thousands of people from infants to grandparent's blocked traffic outside outside the houses of parliament chanting save our planet crowds had gathered in European capitals including Berlin and Warsaw African capitals pedals such as Nairobi Kenya while organizers say there are some eight hundred events planned to take place in the US later New York City's one point one million in public school students were told they were allowed to skip class to attend protests a coalition of environmental groups youth organisations unions is an otherwise using the Hashtag strike with us have demanded passage of a green new deal demonstrations at times to nearly coincided with Monday's Sundays. UN Climate Summit in New York where United Nations Secretary General Antonio Gutierrez has said he wants to see governments and business pledged to abandon fossil fossil fuels. We are losing the fight against climate change. He said at a news conference on Wednesday Fridays for future began as a weekly demonstration in by Swedish teenager Greta Tune Berg in August last year but has since spread to more than one hundred and fifty countries miss tune. Berg leads the charge and we'll speak the south to noon at the strike in New York. The action comes at a time when scientists discovered North America has lost twenty nine percent of its birds since since one thousand nine hundred seventy commuter is still reeling from Hurricane Humbert. Oh and the city of Houston is recovering from tropical depression. Imelda severe rains and flash flooding only two years after Hurricane Harvey for thousands of student protesters around the world. The fate of the planet is a serious business. The trump administration plunged into an extraordinary showdown with Congress of access to a whistle blowers complaints about reported incidents including a private conversation between President Donald Trump and a foreign leader the blocked complaint a serious and urgent the government's intelligence watchdog said the inspector general appeared before the House intelligence committee behind closed doors yesterday but declined under administration orders to reveal to members the substance of the complaint the standoff raises fresh questions about the extent to which trump's allies are protecting the Republican president from oversight and specifically if he's acting director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire is working with the Justice Justice Department to shield the president from the reach of Congress trump though giving no details about any incident denied that he would ever say something inappropriate appropriate on such a phone call representative Adam Schiff the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee said he was prepared to go to court to try to force the trump administration and to open up about the complaint. The inspector general has said this cannot wait said Schiff describing the administration's blockade as an unprecedented departure gotcha from law. There's an urgency here that I think the courts will recognize. He said because the administration is claiming. The information is privileged shifts said he he believes the whistle. Blowers complaint likely involves the president or people around him. Donald Trump in a series of tweets has denied everything. Israel's Arab parties set to be the largest non ruling blocking parliament and and could even lead the opposition. If a national unity government emerges from Tuesday's election a surge in turn out gave the arab-dominated joint list thirteen of the Knesset's one hundred twenty seats making it the third largest grouping behind Benjamin Netanyahu's right-wing Likud party with thirty one seats and Benny Ganz is centrist blue and whites with thirty three that would make the joint list the largest opposition grouping in parliament. If a unity government government take shape a realistic possibility even though Ganz rebuffed Netanyahu's initial invitation no party drawn from the twenty one percent Arab Arab minority has ever been part of an Israeli government this would provide a platform to voice Arab complaints of discrimination against them and give a big platform formed Arab parties that differ with parties drawn from the country's Jewish majority.

"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.

"I think he did acknowledge this is obviously potentially a political assassination. The concern that offense must have is that there's huge political factors here, Malaysia's relations with North Korea. The prosecution have pride not to mention North Korea at all. Got out of their way. Really not to talk much about the vol- men who will with the two women and who we believe organized the whole attack. In fact, there's evidence they're very senior North Korean agents. It was barely mentioned and the government hasn't either. I think the worry that offense has is that because the government cannot go after North Korea is unable to get any. Cooperation to get those agents back though this empty gonna try to pin the whole thing. All these two women have. We heard any reaction from their families. They must be quite disappointed at this latest turn of events, the families, a very poor living in small villages in Vietnam and Indonesia. We've heard very little from what we've heard is they feel obviously very distressed and bright powerless. The two women themselves that she looked quite shot today, their lawyers had expressed quite openly confidence that given the context of this, the always find that these women have no political background at all that the case would be dismissed against them. So I think it is a setback for them and obviously they've been imprisoned a very long time now, it's obviously quite distressing.
