Nations, interfaith community reaffirm commitment to cut carbon emissions

PHOTO: Youssef Boudlal/REUTERS[Episcopal News Service] Nations worldwide convened Nov. 7-18 in Marrakesh, Morocco, to hammer out the details of the Paris Agreement in a shift toward implementation and action on climate and sustainable development.“Our climate is warming at an alarming and unprecedented rate and we have an urgent duty to respond,” reads the Marrakesh Action Proclamation for Our Climate and Sustainable Development issued at the close of the 22nd Conference fo the Parties (COP22) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.“We welcome the Paris Agreement … its rapid entry into force, with its ambitious goals, its inclusive nature and its reflection of equity and common but differentiated responsibilities and respective capabilities, in the light of different national circumstances, and we affirm our commitment to its full implementation.”In December 2015, world governments and officials met in France to reach a historic agreement to reduce carbon emissions and arrest global warming. Since then, 111 countries, including the United States have signed the Paris Agreement, which went into effect on Nov. 4.The agreement calls on the countries of the world to limit carbon emissions, which will require a decrease in dependence on fossil fuels in favor of renewable energy sources; and for developed countries, those responsible for the majority of emissions both historically and at present, to commit to $100 billion in development aid annually by 2020 to developing countries.The proclamation calls for strong solidarity with those countries most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change; for all parties to strengthen and support efforts to eradicate poverty, ensure food security and to take stringent action to deal with climate change challenges in agriculture; to close the gap between current emissions trajectories and the pathway needed to meet the long-term temperature goals of the Paris Agreement; and for an increase in the volume, flow and access to finance for climate projects, alongside improved capacity and technology, including from developed to developing countries.“The Marrakesh Proclamation declares ‘irreversible momentum on climate,’ we now pray and discern our way to take part in this momentum,” said California Bishop Marc Andrus, who attended the United Nations climate conference in Marrakesh as an Episcopal delegate representing Presiding Bishop Michael Curry.“The Episcopal Church has an ecumenical and interfaith stance that impels us to work on building vibrant relationships with other denominations of Christianity and with other religions – again, we can ask what this diverse, complicated and increasingly integrated set of relationships offers to climate action.”An interfaith climate statement signed by close to 300 religious leaders from 50 countries was presented Nov. 16 to a member of the U.N. Secretary General’s Climate Change Support Team. The interfaith statement calls on nations to justly manage the transition to a low carbon economy and urges governments to shift trillions of dollars of investments in fossil fuels into renewable energy, goals in line with the Paris Agreement and the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals.The United States is the world’s largest economy and its second largest emitter of greenhouse gasses, which trap heat in the atmosphere and make the planet warmer.The Nov. 8 election of Donald J. Trump as the next U.S. president cast a pall over the climate conference, as he has vowed to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris Agreement and curb the country’s commitment to reduce its reliance on fossil fuels. The president-elect has called human-caused climate change a “hoax.”“In the first week, the general pulse of the COP gathering was one of shock, denial, grief and anguish when the results of the U.S. elections became known. It was characterized by gloom, even tears, as many felt that the hard work that had been done was just about to go down the tubes,” said Lynnaia Main, global partnerships officer for the Episcopal Church and its liaison to the United Nations, who also attended the conference on behalf of the presiding bishop.The mood, however, began to change at the start of the second week, she said, “we began to hear signs of hope and reaffirmation of the willingness to remain together and push forward on climate action.”For instance, said Main, faith-based groups in attendance at the conference pledged to continue their work, with a focus on city and state governments and at the global level; while continuing to engage with the U.S. government.“These smaller actors have the potential to make big strides in curbing emissions, and as advocates, we can plug into this potential through urging local structures to play their part in the international climate effort,” said Jayce Hafner, the Episcopal Church’s domestic policy analyst based in Washington, D.C., and a member of Curry’s delegation.On Nov. 16, major corporations and investors called on President Barack Obama and president-elect Trump, to continue low-carbon policies and investments, and to stay committed to the Paris Agreement.On Nov. 18, Trump announced three cabinet picks, all on the record as climate deniers. That same day, some of the world’s poorest countries strengthened their pledges to move toward renewables to meet 100 percent of their energy needs.For its part, the Episcopal Church engages in environmental and climate justice advocacy using as a basis resolutions passed by the Church’s General Convention and its Executive Council, which in 2008 adopted support for the Church’s long-term carbon neutral goals.The 2015 General Convention passed legislation to create a task force on climate change, which will provide resources that parishes can use to “green” their churches and educate members on what they can do to address climate change in their everyday lives.“As the Episcopal Church mobilized in the early years of this century to embrace and forward the United Nations goals to reduce extreme poverty globally, so we can work in partnership with non-governmental organizations and governmental bodies to create a sustainable world,” said Andrus, at the close of the climate conference in Marrakesh.“The Episcopal Church has enormous resources – chief among them are what [Holocaust survivor and filmmaker] Pierre Sauvage called ‘weapons of the spirit’ – prayer and our spiritual values, the sacraments, the Scriptures, the Body of the faithful, and the Holy Spirit. All of these spiritual realities inform and support our action in the world – finance, advocacy, ‘greening the Church,’ resistance, solidarity, protest.”Many Episcopal churches have installed solar panels. And this year, Church Divinity School of the Pacific installed the largest solar panel grid of any theological institution in the country.The Diocese of North Dakota is working on an energy sustainability project in its seven native ministries and congregations, including churches on the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation, near where protesters have for more the six months opposed construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline near the tribe’s water supply and sacred sites. Andrus recently joined more than 540 clergy and lay leaders in a day of solidarity and witness with the Standing Rock Sioux Nation near Cannon Ball, North Dakota.– Lynette Wilson is an editor/reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Gay Travel Croatia – Rijeka portal that opens the door to gay tourism

first_imgGay Travel Croatia team “I started the Gay Travel Croatia page, and the idea was born three years ago when, in a conversation with my gay friends, I realized that they don’t know where to go when they visit one of our cities. “We have money, and we don’t know where to spend it because we don’t know where we are welcome,” that’s what it sounded like. I was bothered by this part where they don’t know where they are welcome because I believe the vast majority of us went through that phase a long time ago”, Says Iva Piglić Lazić, from Rijeka who has several reasons to launch this website. “It is precisely the gay population that is my personal and scientific interest. Personal because I have friends who are gay and I know their problems within the family, at work, and in society. I want to free them from that stigma, that stomach cramp, that hiding and fear of what they are. I don’t think it’s fair to make a difference. My scientific interest in this direction goes to the Department of Cultural Studies at the Faculty of Social Sciences in Ljubljana, where I deal with this topic”, Said Piglić Lazić. Find out more about the project at Gay Travel Croatia. Iva Piglić Lazić is a woman who launched a website intended for the gay population, and her goal is to open the doors of Croatia to them in the best possible way. Iva Piglić Lazić Croatia as a tourist country should be open to everyone, including the diverse. Despite the fact that we often witness inappropriate events towards others, Croatia is a part of European nations and a tourist destination and as such it is increasingly open to people of homosexual orientation. The users are foreign tourists who come to Croatia, but the portal is also intended for our tourists who want to get information that are gay friendly places in Croatia – gay friendly accommodation, clubs, beaches, beauty salons and the like. In Croatia, too, things are changing rapidly. Many agencies provide “tailor-made trips”, which would mean that agencies make trips according to individual wishes. “Croatia is not bad in terms of services, nor are Croats generally homophobic. Croatia is ready for such a portal, for such an idea, and I can use these services myself, why not? I like to be in the company of different people and grow on my own. There is so much a man can learn”, Explains Iva Piglić Lazić, who launched a project that could bring Croatia a lot more money than tourism. “I think most business people are aware of how big the annual revenue from gay tourism is, and it revolves around a staggering $ 150 billion! Over 300 thousand gay tourists come to Croatia every year, and these are guests of higher paying power, they are not burdened with loans, they mostly do not have children, so they come to Croatia all year round because they do not follow the school holidays. And they are mostly big gourmands who like to dance and have fun”, Said Iva, who also reveals one interesting piece of information when asked if this portal is intended only for boys or also for girls. The whole story was started from Rijeka, Iva gathered her team and once again showed that Rijeka is a port of diversity, cultural, multidimensional and liberal. One such agency is in Rijeka, through which 80 percent of American tourists come, who have special wishes, which includes renting yachts, helicopters, strictly defined car brands, private concerts and the like. They had a lot of inquiries for gay couples, but they had no one to turn to. “It is primarily intended for men. Research has shown that this is a homosocial situation, that is: a male space, such as watching matches from the stands in a male company or playing poker. Gay men love their space just as much as heterosexual men, and the Center for Women’s Studies at the Faculty of Philosophy in Rijeka, with which we also cooperate, confirmed that this is the case. I emphasize this scientific background because I do not want any piece of this project to be trivialized: a lot of people are involved in the background and this story is not the story of one man, me, but this is a common story of people who are aware”, Says the author of the project, who is currently positioned on social networks and continues to invite tourism workers to contact her via the site or social networks to make the offer from Croatia even better and more complete. last_img read more

Everyones Just Guessing About Matt Harveys Innings Limit

Mets pitcher Matt Harvey was caught in a tabloid cacophony last week after his agent, Scott Boras, spoke candidly about how many innings Harvey should pitch this season. Harvey, who came back from Tommy John surgery at the beginning of the year, was said to be on a soft limit of about 180 innings,1He’s currently at 166 1/3 innings, giving him about two more starts before he hits the limit. as recommended by his surgeon. The Mets want Harvey to pitch in the postseason, Boras wants Harvey to sit out if it means exceeding 180 innings, and Harvey … Harvey seems to want both things.Boras’s approach seems reasonable: Limiting the innings of a young pitcher who may still be recovering from a serious injury seems like it might be wise. The trouble is that we have no idea whether innings limits work.There’s no question that pitching puts great stress on the arm. Accordingly, some studies of adolescent pitchers have found a link between an athlete’s innings pitched and the probability of future injury. The logic is clear: The more pitches thrown, the more wear and tear on the arm. Based on that, a hard limit on Harvey’s workload appears to be a good idea.But there’s no guarantee that what goes for amateurs also goes for pros. Harvey and all other MLB pitchers are a particularly talented and hardy group of throwers relative to those who play in high school, the minors or even college. It’s plausible that each additional pitch does less damage to them than it would to your local high school pitcher. Supporting this idea, a recent paper analyzing MLB pitchers 25 and younger (Harvey is 26) found no clear link between the number of innings pitched and future injury rates.It’s possible that Harvey represents a special case because of not only his youth, but also his previous bout of elbow trouble. Boras made this argument by presenting a set of four pitchers comparable to Harvey, each of whom came off Tommy John surgery and pitched more than 200 innings in the next year. All four suffered complications.But a sample of four pitchers can hardly provide conclusive evidence, and the Mets’ own preseason study (using comparable players) produced the opposite conclusion. That two studies using similar methods could produce conflicting verdicts underscores the difficulty of predicting pitcher health. As Mets general manager Sandy Alderson put it, “It’s not science.”One of the major problems is that any simple calculation of workload (like IP) is a flawed measure of fatigue and thus injury risk. Not all pitches inflict the same damage upon the arm, and poor mechanics cause injury much more quickly. The future of injury analytics will likely depend on better ways of gauging pitcher health that measure not only the workload but also the technique of the pitcher and how it changes over time. Newer technologies such as motion tracking systems and wearable sensors offer the promise of novel metrics that could be predictive, but most such systems are in preliminary stages of development or are just being deployed. Until those new technologies develop further, the Mets, Boras and Harvey are flying blind. read more

The best buy was Piatek not Ronaldo Italian newspaper

first_imgAccording to research by Corriere Della Sera, the goals scored by the Polish striker outweigh anything the Portuguese has done so far in the league.Cristiano Ronaldo joined Italian Serie A giants Juventus for 100 million Euro.Meanwhile, Polish striker Krzysztof Piatek was bought by Genoa for only 4 million.And for the Italian newspaper Corriere Della Sera, the goals by Krzystof are more important.The Polish attacker has scored 13 goals, one less than Ronaldo this season.”Romelu Lukaku, Inter MilanLukaku backed to beat Ronaldo in Serie A scoring charts Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Former Inter Milan star Andy van der Meyde is confident Romelu Lukaku will outscore Cristiano Ronaldo in this season’s Serie A.The best buy is not Cristiano Ronaldo but Krzysztof Piatek,” wrote the newspaper.“The goals are counted but they are all equal only in fantasy football. In reality, each of them has a different weight in terms of points won.”“The Genoa striker was a real deal for Preziosi, who signed him for only 4 million euros and Piatek has immediately shown his qualities, scoring 13 goals, only one less than Ronaldo, who cost 100 million,” they added.“If this was not enough, his goals have much higher importance for Genoa than Ronaldo’s for Juventus.”“The 13 goals of the Polish striker have guaranteed the Rossoblu 10 of the total 20 points in the standings,” they concluded.last_img read more
