China Bars Entry to 2 Members of W.H.O. Team Investigating Covid in Wuhan
"Scientific investigators from the World Health Organization have finally been given permission by the Chinese government to search for the origins of the Wuhan coronavirus. Here's Jim Rupe. It was last week that wh o Director general, Dr Ted Rose and not Gabriel ASIS expressed his frustration at China for reversing his permission for investigators to hit the ground in Wuhan. I'm very disappointed with this news, given that two members had already begun their journeys and others were not able to travel at the last minute. But Thursday after a call from Dr Ted Rose, Chinese officials granted permission for the team to enter Wuhan. Life in Wuhan, we're told is relatively back to normal, the north of the country. There is a resurgence of the virus. China has assisted for months that just because Wuhan is where the first cluster of cases were discovered, does not necessarily mean Wuhan is ground zero for the outbreak. The suspicion is by scientists, however. That the virus that has killed nearly two million people worldwide at this point since 2019 jump from a bad to an animal to human somewhere in the country, Southwest Chinese officials maintain the virus most likely came from abroad, perhaps an infected seafood. Tho. Scientists reject that. The team includes scientists and virus experts from the US, the UK, Australia, Germany, Japan, Russia, the Netherlands, guitar and Vietnam, all anxious to get their hands microscopes, probes and Petri dishes in defining the root cause the host animal, the animal that caught the virus from the bed and, in turn infected the human And where that happened. The mission is a priority for W. Joe and the international team. It's kind of on hold. However, the team has to quarantine for two weeks before even a rubber glove can be put on. I'm
A protected right? Free speech and social media
"President Trump was banned from Facebook and permanently banned from Twitter. For certain inciting language. We also watched his Amazon suspended the right wing social media platform parlor from its sight lawsuit ensued. It's pending. People are crying. First amendment has been violated. What are your rights are their First Amendment rights when it comes to Social Media and consortium media banned people for reasons that it feels are appropriate. Joining us to talk about this is very interesting is she was Eric Goldman. Who is a professor of LOT Santa Clara University School of Law in the Silicon Valley, his co director of the high tech Law Institute, and he is gonna explain it all to us. Hi, Professor Goldman. Thank you for joining me. My pleasure. Thanks for having me. I'm gonna start by asking you Is there a first Amendment right that a person has to use Twitter. The short answer is no. The First Amendment only applies to state actors entities of the government. Since Twitter is a private actor, private publisher. It's not covered by obligations that the government is So in and I just I wanna explain it this way. If I am saying things that are harmful or offensive, and I say to Twitter what you have to publish them, it doesn't create a First Amendment problem for Twitter. Meaning Twitter can't be forced to publish things that it doesn't believe are appropriate. Is that a fair way to look at? Yeah, that's 100% correct. In fact, if you look at the First Amendment guarantees the right to freedom of speech and freedom of the press, And so when Twitter is choosing to publish their party content, it's acting is a function of the press. So the First Amendment applies under that freedom of the press obligation Now, people there's something about it that Is driving everyone crazy because in this country, we believe we can say anything at any time. And who is it? Who are our Amazon? And who is Facebook? And who is Twitter to tell us what we should be hearing and not hearing. Explain to our listeners. Is this fair and I guess there's two questions. Is it fair? And what are the legalities of that? And what are the What are the ramifications of that? Yeah, it's the same question that we have with your own radio station that everyone's listen to. Right now. That's radio stations are obligated to provide air time to any listener who wants to call in. He just him screaming in terms of who calls in and then if someone's out of control, saying things that are inappropriate, you're going to cut the mic off and none of that. Whatever assume is a violation, their First Amendment rights, they would say. That we expect this radio station Tonto cater to its audience. So the entire premise of um WGN making sure that the broadcast continents fit for its listeners. It's identical to the thought process that we applied to places like Twitter or Amazon that they're going to publish what they think it's fit for their audience. I'm going to give out our phone numbers. I'm better. Some people have some questions for our professor here. 3129817 200 Let me play doubles advocate here and you look at the statistics on where people get news and this is so different than it used to be. When I was a kid. We was all the newspapers and and news on television, And now much of it is done on social media Getting news from The Internet and and things that are published online. How fair is it to have certain people be in charge of deciding what's harmful, inoffensive and what's not, and a lot of people are saying, you know, I hear all this horrible racist stuff that we, you know, on Twitter, but yet we are president can't be on Twitter. And what did he say? And what How is it that that was worse than what somebody else said? How is this fair? And how should we deal with this from a legal perspective going forward? Well, I think that people have very different views about what's fair. So I find that when we start shifting the evaluation metric there, um I think that we're probably not going to end up agreeing that a zoo community But just you went back to talking about how things were when you were kids. I don't know how far apart we are in aged, But when I was a kid in the mid 19 seventies, there was one local newspaper, and there were three television stations that could reach a community, right? WGN was one of them on and in those days, um even in when there was such Linda channels to reach a community there was a Supreme Court case called Miami Herald versus Tonio with the Supreme Court said You can't force that newspaper the only one that's catering to that local market to publish content that they don't want to publish that violates our freedom of the press. And so, it's said. That's true, even though that paper might have a local monopoly, even though there's only that one. We still don't think that that's permissible under the First Amendment. We're making incursion on their free speech rights. So you see why the conversation about fairness is so difficult because I want the right deal. Say whatever I want whenever I want. You said that earlier, um but but the reality is that we have to look at all the different competing interests when we think about Uh, who gets the right to say What toe Which audiences? Okay, so again, I'm just gonna go over this, because is there any obligation on the part of Twitter? Let's say to be fair, meaning if I said the same thing you said, and they cut me off and they didn't cut you off. Do I have a right to sue? Do I have a right to somehow have a legal argument that I'm not being treated fairly and I deserve to be treated fairly. It's a really great question, and I think it really gets at the heart of the challenges or bedeviling services like Facebook or Twitter. They really aspire to treat like cases equally. That if the Jackson birds, we say, said, by people in the same circumstance that they would apply the same rules to those that's an overwhelming challenge. It's actually not possible with the volume and scale that services like that engage in. It's simply not possible them toe always treat like cases equally, despite their best efforts, despite their intent. Um, but the reality is that because they're deciding what's safe for their audience, even if they make an arbitrary decision, one of which a content that was okay on day one from person A first would be a day two is cut off. That's their prerogative, and that's actually quite legally protected and their several layers legal protection. Provide Twitter Facebook, the ability to make those classifications sessions decisions, even though they're not going to get him all

"Program that already. Yes people take shelter in the cyclone shelters. That is what I have seen from the news. So among the people in very basic Shacks are about a million Hindu refugees who fled the ethnically driven massacres in Myanmar few years ago. And they've been living in this giant refugee camp Cox's Bazar in Bangladesh. What do you know about their situation? Do they have enough. Space to relocate will be list impacted area because it is like you to make landfall to the Western southwest that is in Indiana and border area so coastal area of Cox and Chittagong. I think that it will be affected. So the Rohingya people who are in the ten. I think they'd be impacted so much will be some thunderstorms rainfall. Something like that. What is usual during this time? I've read that across Bangladesh. Some people are hesitant to evacuate. Why do you think that is always in our country? All countries also what? I have seen that. The people don't like to go to the shelter sometimes and many reasons for this and the current is a new at each and it is a new and the pink that sensory not be maintained properly debt that may also among them. This government has requested that the people to use mats and increase the number of shelters piloting some social distance among the people. I just learned today that about forty percent of global storm surges hit Bangladesh. In fact some of the deadliest cyclones of hip long edition the past half-century. As you say now there's corona virus how prepared you think. Bangaldesh really is for the effects of the storm. The people are now than before so this is my thinking that the people will be going to the shelter and also take precautions in this case. Well we are very glad to hear. The precautions are being taken. Shumur Andrea car is a retired director of Bangladesh Meteorological Department. He's been speaking with us from Bangladesh's capital Dhaka Shumur render. Thank you very much. Thank you really as cyclone on pond barrels toward Bangaladeshi in India. There's new evidence this week. Proving that hurricanes and cyclones have gotten more intense over the past for decades. The world's environment correspondent Carolyn. Bieler is here to explain this new link between hurricanes and our warming world. Hey Caroline Hey Marco so we've definitely talked before about the link between hurricanes and climate change and when we did I would say something like hurricanes are expected to grow more intense as the world warms. That's because physics dictates and computer. Modeling also shows that as we add heat to our oceans. An air we're adding more potential energy to storm system so more energy that can turn into higher winds But this week for the first time scientists have been able to actually look back and say that as our world has warmed these hurricanes typhoons or cyclones depending on where you are in the world have already gotten more intense just so how much longer are we talking here so this new study which was published this week. The proceedings of the National Academy of Science showed that every decade for the past four decades basically the likelihood of a hurricane developing into a major hurricane category three or higher has risen about eight percent per decade. So this is something models have shown for years and it makes intuitive sense with the laws of physics. Why is this now just being proved well? It's hard to study hurricanes. There aren't that many of them which makes it hard to draw these big conclusions about them and it's hard to compare storms over the decades and around the world because the way we've studied them has changed. A satellite technology has changed and we also measure them differently in different places around the world so for example in the Atlantic. We still send these hurricane hunting planes into the eyes of hurricanes to measure the wind speeds. That doesn't really happen regularly and other places so the researchers who publish this study had to come up with a way to compare hurricanes and cyclones from forty years ago was ones. That happened just a few years ago and they did that by studying. Things like cloud patterns and infrared temperature readings on satellite images in order to derive these sort of apples to apples comparisons. The world's environment correspond Caroline Bieler. Thanks very much. You're welcome. Nocco Sudan must pay billions of dollars in punitive damages to victims of two bombing attacks in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight at US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania that is the ruling from the US Supreme Court this week. The attacks were carried out by al-Qaeda operatives between the two embassies. The bombings killed hundreds of people and wounded thousands of others besides the payment. The court's ruling sends a strong message to governments at sponsor terrorism as the world's Halima Kakande reports. It comes as a Sudanese government is trying to get off the US terrorism list. It was a unanimous decision the US Supreme Court ruled that Sudan must pay more than four billion dollars to hundreds of victims of to terrorist attacks on US embassies in nineteen ninety eight most of the victims were Kenyans and Tanzanians. Who had worked in the embassy's they have been fighting in the courts with the Sudanese government for Years Gabrielle. Maryanne is one of the lawyers representing them. He says Sudan has not paid a single cent so far. Despite previous court rulings attack itself sets off a lifetime of other problems and other stuff rank. You know that they're all connected really. Sudan wants to get off the US list of state sponsors of terrorism. The State Department put the country on the list in nineteen ninety three and now many Sudanese say. Us sanctions tied to that listing or choking the economy Cameron Hudson is a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council he also advised the Bush administration on Sudan policy. I think that she has to put these cases behind them once and for all if the requirement is that they have to pay then then that's the requirement that many in Sudan say that the country doesn't have the money to pay billions of dollars in compensation to victims. The government is saddled with large debts. Prime Minister Abdellah. Hamdani is the head of the new civilian lead. Sudanese government he spoke about the terrorism listing during a visit to Washington in December this issue of bidding on so many processes not to mention the debt investment both also opening the country the US State Department says it's working with Sudan to figure out a way to meet these obligations. Here's Assistant Secretary for African affairs. Tibor nausea in January. There are some thorny issues involved with have to be overcome we want accessible Sudan. We want to be partners for sedan so we are working together along the lawyers representing the victims of the embassy. Bombing say they're worried Gabrielle. Marion at tells me that the US has proposed a tiered payment system foreign nationals. Who worked at the embassies he says would receive less than ten percent of what American victims are expecting and he says that includes foreign nationals who have since become American citizens. It's going to be to discriminate against a against African Americans and Africans is gone and and pay US citizens ten million dollars and those guys either nothing or you know a couple hundred thousand State Department officials sent me an email today that said has reached a preliminary agreement with Sudan to settle. These claims that agreement been sent to Congress it would provide compensation to both US citizens and noncitizens. But it didn't say how much Cameron Hudson from the Atlantic Council says. The trump administration is trying to strike a balance between supporting New Democracy in Sudan and holding the government. They're accountable. There is a risk that Sudan will continue to keep this tied up in in courts. There's an opportunity to get some payment. Now you've waited twenty years to get anything. Any final deal on those financial claims would need to be passed in Congress for the world. I'm Halima condie seventy five years ago. The Globe was emerging from the second world. War countries came together to create a global organization that they hoped would prevent human rights atrocities from happening. Again I'm talking of course about the United Nations. This year is UN recognizes. Its seventy fifth. Year it's also evaluating how it needs to evolve at a so called People's Forum. The world's Rupa Shaw has more corona virus pandemic forced the United Nations to hold its seventy fifth anniversary people's Forum online allowing for what might have been the biggest conversation ever about the way the UN works. Some two thousand officials activists and advocates from dozens of countries attended and from the outset. One theme was clear. The UN hasn't been effective enough in getting governments to work together. Under Obama is founder of Democracy Without Borders Germany. Battle lines are shaping with some seeing an opportunity to feed nationalism xenophobia and focus on one's own country my country my government might might people and forget about the rest of the world. Several speakers pointed out that countries. With nationalist agendas were spreading disinformation on social media and marginalizing. The people who advocate for global solutions to global problems like climate change and the current pandemic song young noon is you and representative for the International Alliance for women. We are experiencing an assault on science an assault against our UN agencies like who and all processes like Paris climate accord not only has the UN struggled to corral nations to work together. It's also struggled to hold individual nations accountable for human rights abuses Amelia rays of the organization. Equa the handle. Mexico said that the U. N. Investigators who document these abuses are often ignored. The UN system is actually undermining on dismissing the recommendation of all of these very powerful human rights You entrepreneurs many argued that current structure of the UN isn't actually serving people. It's serving governments bridget. Burns is director of the women's Environment and Development Organisation in New York really the UN right now doesn't feel fit for serving the global good as opposed to serving the interests of nation states nation states. That aren't necessarily interested in protecting poor people or the environment fergus. Watt is executive director of the World Federalist Movement Canada. P Like many others suggested the UN invite more citizen engagement. Perhaps it's time that we think about ways that we can lift up the role of citizens representatives at the UN want a new system of elected citizen representatives who would take part in UN deliberations and have direct input perhaps through new technology but Silvio Gonzalvo head of the European Union delegation to the UN cautioned. There would be challenges to more citizen involvement. He said that some countries have opposed their citizens being admitted to UN conferences. In the past we'd be siging for keeping these conferences open to civil society. Osama member states do not agree with that they want to be able to object. We want objection poses to be as transparent as possible the UN General Assembly will consider that change and others that might increase that is an involvement over the next month. It's expected to ratify a seventy fifth anniversary declaration in September setting out a shared vision for a common future for the world. I'm Rupa Shenoy schools in South Korea.

"Shuttered energy is way down so our carbon emissions at Dr Climate Change. A new study out today says global greenhouse gas emissions have plunged seventeen percent. The world's Anna customer has been digging in and it seems a big dip in coal usage accounts for a lot of that. Drop Anna. Let's start with the big picture. Here what's happening in energy markets overall around the world right now? Electricity demand has gone down an average of twenty percent and the first quarter of twenty twenty has seen a four percent dip in energy use overall. Just about every fuel type has been affected by that but as you just mentioned Cole has been hit the hardest USO. Why in this whole energy picture is call take mitigate what's happening in India right now which is the world's second biggest coal consumer I think is a good example for what's happening to coal and a lot of places. Coal accounts for about seventy percent of their energy generation but as the demand has gone down almost all of the energy. That's been taken off. Line our coal plants and that's not just happening in India that's happening in a lot of places. So what kind of long term impact is this pandemic likely to have on the coal industry overall the coal industry has already been suffering around the world? And that's because of how inefficient coal-fired power plants are compared to other sources of energy in many countries. And also they're really bad for air quality and carbon emissions that Bob Dylan expression. You don't have to be a Weatherman to know which way the wind blows. Yes so the wind is not blowing towards coal in a lot of these places. Here's Tim Buckley. At the Institute of Energy Economics and Financial Analysis in Sydney Australia talking about the lockdowns impact on coal during economically challenged. Now trying to run a coal plant profitably. He's almost you also is just added in extra reminder that the financial risks of investing in call it's technologically logically facilities Anna. You made the point earlier. That Cole is bad for Air Quality. What does the drop in? Coal usage means carbon emissions. What what can you say about that? So of all the fuel sources out there burning coal is the worst impact when it comes to carbon emissions. India's drop in coal burning has resulted in India's emissions going down for the first time in four decades which is remarkable emissions are down around the world and the drop is most intense in countries that burn coal with coal continuing its downward slide. Does that mean renewables will now fill the void. Just naturally become a larger share of the energy market renewables have had basically the opposite fate than Coal Brent wanner at the International Energy Agency says this boost in renewables and the kind of crash of coal is the continuation of a trend. That we've already been seen. This falls and important turning point in twenty nine thousand nine which marked the first time in history that global coal fired generation was overtaken by low carbon sources so an India and many other countries renewables where the energy source that were hurt the least by the lockdowns although the industry has been hurt I mean supply chains have been messed up and a lot of jobs have been lost so it's not a full win for renewables. They've just been the least hurt during very tumultuous time what our analysts expecting in long-term do they say these trends that you've been describing are going to continue in the short and medium-term things could go in just about any direction in China the world's biggest energy market and the biggest user of coal. I should mention energy demand in emissions shot up in May after dropping in March and April. Here's Laurie Mulugeta. At the Center for Research on energy and clean air in Helsinki Finland. The bequest question is is the short leaf. Or is this the start off a dirty rebound and that really depends on the decisions that the Chinese policymakers will be taking? The next week's leaders could decide to bail out Cole or they could use this big disruption to go another way and that's true of so many countries and it's definitely true of India as well so just because the economic and financial wind is blowing away from coal and towards renewables. That doesn't mean that governments will necessarily go in that direction and a customer environment producer here at the world. Thanks very much for this. Thanks Marco.

Of course not only up. Who but unfortunately of what a number of different governments over there on the world have done to respond to this outbreak and it makes perfect sense. I think the big question is about. What is the appropriate timing? And how do we make sure that any kind of review is Fox? Truly independent and impartial. But nobody spoke against doing any kind of review and I think it was quite significant that President Xi Jinping of China in fact also supported a review. But not at this time right. And when you say timing you mean the. Who would kind of conduct an audit of their performance after the pandemic a what would be the timing on that I think we have to be passed crisis period and right now we need all hands on deck.

Now it doesn't mean you put it off indefinitely but that it would be harmful distraction. A destructive destruction right now is the resolution for an independent review of the whol response to Donald Trump's relentless criticism of the organization or have there been concerned by other countries as well. I do think that the The fact that it was included in the resolution which was passed by consensus reflects a strong push by the US government it does reflect the fact that a number of countries do share some of Donald Trump's concerned that we don't have full information for example about the origins of the virus at our questions. I think about accent which information was shared by the Chinese authorities in the early days of the outbreak back in December January of this year. However what's interesting to note? Is that one of the government's got involved in trying to agree in a. What is a reasonable review to call for? You saw that. A number of other conditions were added. I think there's widespread recognition that the number of the key actress. Who dropped the ball and responded to these outbreak our national government and that does not exclude the US government and show. I think an important feature of this resolution that is calling for a comprehensive review. That doesn't only look at whol. Have member states come to the defense of? Who's Director General? Dr Teodoro skip braces. Almost every single statement that a government made during the assembly expressed support and appreciation both for the WHO and oftentimes for Director General himself. I think there is a widespread perception that the US decision to withhold funding and to really target blame on who in the middle of a historic on domestic is short-sighted. It is self serving. It seems to be motivated by domestic political considerations the way in which the US has gone about pushing for certain changes. I think has been counterproductive in that.

Of course this is the biggest challenge. Who has faced in seventy years of its existence and it has very treacherous political waters at it has to navigate ahead of it. I think the trump letter coming in the middle of two assembly certainly was disruptive but what is notable is that you had heads of state speaking at the beginning of the Assembly for the letter. And you'd heads of state speaking after the letter came in and there was no change in tone. There was no change in the kind of expressions of political support for the Organization for International Cooperation for multilateral approaches that were expressed across regions and across all kinds of political ideologies.

They said without any help from apple and blasted the company for allegedly slowing down the investigation. Here's the world's Lydia Manley do after the attack in December it didn't take long for authorities to turn their attention to the two phones that belong to the gunman. It was clear at the time that the phones were likely to contain very important information. This is US Attorney General William Bar. Yesterday's press conference. He said that within one day of the shooting the FBI got court orders authorizing them to search the phones but they were locked and the FBI didn't have the passwords it needed to get in. We asked for assistance and the president asked Apple for assistance. Unfortunately apple would not help us eventually the FBI broke into the phones on its own but US officials say that. Apple's unwillingness to help seriously hampered the investigation apple denies this accusation which was made over and over again at this thirty six minute press conference in a statement it gave to the World Apple said it did work with. Us law enforcement and handed over some data. It had access to apple accused. Us officials of making quote false claims about the company claims. They say we're an excuse to weekend.
