"And reunification in the near future. While a bird on the future of Northern Ireland still remains somewhere away, the Republic of Ireland must weigh whether it can afford to absorb its northern neighbor into its healthcare and education system. Northern Ireland consistently has the UK's highest bridge of economically inactive people. Including those needing long-term care. This story was reported by sharpy mosaic for the Marshall. Louisiana is the first southern state with a climate action plan, rooted in its coastal vulnerabilities. With the plan comes the chance to lead by example in the nation's petrochemical corridor. When Louisiana governor John bell Edwards announced that a state task force had approved a climate action plan earlier this year, it came with an ambitious goal. Net zero greenhouse emissions by 2050. It was also unusual for this region, the first such plan in the south and a seeming anomaly in a local economy focused on oil production and refining. One sign of the oil and gas industry's dominance, while the 60% of the state's carbon emissions come from its industrial sector. Louisiana ranks 25th among the states in population. But 5th in emissions still, many hearsay that pure economic interests call for action on climate change. Quietly, Louisiana has been adapting to climate change due to coastal erosion and the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The task force, which included industry stakeholders, framed its plan run free pillars. Shifting to renewable energy, running more industrial processes by electric power and switching from carbon to hydrogen based fuels for the industrial sector. The question now is implementation which the task force can't control, says Mark Davis, director of Chilean universities institute on water resources law and policy. The plan tells you what to do, he says. But it doesn't tell you what will work. This story was reported by zander Peter's and New Orleans for the manager. Even boulders erode eventually, but integrity indoors writes essayist, mer Brewster. The story of my new fence begins 15,000 years ago. Its builder, grant, was recommended by a friend. Grant pulled off the existing fence and a rotten trellis. He tore out shrubs, yarded in lumber and Doug post holes. And the whole time he was a fountain of cheer. He hummed, he whistled, he was well past retirement age and has the constitution of a good natured bison. A new fence emerged, the gate whispered open and shut like a butterfly testing its wings. But months later, it became petulant. Ultimately, it wouldn't close. I called grant. Of course you'd be right over. The heavy gate was pulling its post off plum. He studied it, and we were good. For a few months. I called grant. It's all these rocks, he said. It makes the post unstable. We live on a gigantic gravel bar of cobble scarred of a petite volcano to the east and a positive here during the ice age floods. Grant strategized, he puts in a post perpendicular to the fence to fortify it. It will probably work. But if not, how many times will he let me call you about this queried? I'm good for life, grant said, with a smile, and I believe him. You could find mers full first person essay in today's issue. Now, commentary from the monitor's editorial board on aiding Afghanistan after last week's earthquake. When the world responds to a humanitarian crisis in a country under authoritarian rule, it can run the risk that the aid will help the regime. Can that be avoided? It depends on whether there is mutual recognition that the needs of suffering people come first. Perhaps nowhere is the demand for aid more urgent than in Afghanistan. Since the Taliban's takeover last August, an economic emergency has left half the country stricken by acute hunger. That crisis was compounded by an earthquake last week that left an estimated 800 dead and more than a thousand homeless. Dozens of countries and international humanitarian organizations have pledged food and financial aid in the aftermath. Including Germany and the United States. In a rare public appeal, Hunza, the Taliban supreme leader, called on the international community to help the Afghan people affected by this great tragedy, and vowed.

"The Gulf Coast is bracing for another hurricane. The National Hurricane Center says Sally, which was a tropical storm has strengthened into a Category one Hurricane Kelly has already been dumping rain on Florida and is likely to strengthen as it heads towards the Louisiana coast. And New Orleans. Joining us now is Jeff Hoffman, director and chief meteorologist at the Florida Public Radio Emergency Network. Jeff Where is Sally now? And what's its track and timing for land landfall? Good afternoon. Jeremy Sally is of course, as you mentioned now Hurricane it's about due south of Pensacola, and it's moving slowly to the West West Northwest and expected to continue strengthening it underwent a rapid intensification cycle this morning. Winds are now gusting well into Hurricane force is expected to potentially come close to a Category two before landfall. On that landfall track has shifted slightly to the East. Because this morning, Gerry the center reformed a bit to the east as well which that tends to happen sometimes when storms undergo rapid intensification landfalls now projected to be somewhere along the southeast coast of Louisiana, southern coast of Mississippi and Alabama sometime Tuesday afternoon to Tuesday night. Emphasis on the word slow. It's a very slow moving system, of course, which will enhance the potential for flooding. That's going to be the big story. I think with now Hurricane Sally well, and Louisiana's governor John Bell. Edwards has already declared a state of emergency for Louisiana, which is still dealing with the damage from Hurricane Laura that made landfall there just three weeks ago with 150 mile per hour winds. Some people still don't have power. Sounds like Sally is not going to be as bad as Laura. In terms of the widespread wind damage likely not that remember every hurricane or every tropical system, not just hurricanes are very unique, imposed their own hazards. This one is a slow moving system. It's goingto produce a prolonged period of life threatening storm surge. For pretty much from the mouth of the Mississippi River all the way over to maybe Pensacola and then because the storm is going to be in the vicinity of the northern Gulf Coast states for two, maybe three days, we're talking. Maybe Wednesday or Thursday before it pulls up into the southern appellations. Very heavy rain inland. Flooding freshwater flooding flash flooding. We're talking about a 2 to 3 Day event here that could produce rain totals in the order of 10 to 20 inches nearer and east of where the center tracks. I'm looking at the National Hurricane Center website right now, and there are 1234567 Systems out there. Not all of them have become even tropical storms yet, but this is a pretty busy season. Yeah. When it comes to records, Where do you begin? I mean, right now we have five tropical cyclones or named storms that is tied for the record a same time on were now only one name away from having to move into the Greek alphabet. Eyes to certainly what they call a hyperactive season and we have broken. I think I'm losing count, but somewhere over 13 or 14 records in terms of the earliest, a particular name storm forms The numbers keep falling that we've had a fairly weak systems Other than Laura and Sally is, of course, a significant threat to the northern Gulf Coast states. But for example, in Florida they've we've missed most of the storms in Florida on DH. There's still a potential we still several more weeks of the peak of hurricane season to go. It is Jeff Hoffman, director and chief meteorologist at the Florida Public Radio Emergency Network. As we keep an eye on Sally, which, as we said, is now a hurricane heading toward the Louisiana Coast, Jeff Thanks as always. All right. Thank you.
