2015 set to be hottest year on record, WMO says

hottest year on reconrd - 2015This year is shaping up to be the hottest on record, and 2016 could be even hotter due to the El Niño weather pattern, the U.N.'s World Meteorological Organization (WMO) said Wednesday, days before a climate summit opens in Paris.

Based on data for the first 10 months of the year, “We feel very confident ... that 2015 will be the warmest year on record,” said Michel Jarraud, head of the WMO.

The WMO said land and sea temperatures were likely to surpass those of 2014 as the highest since record-keeping began.


Bombed MSF Kunduz hospital was on US no-strike list before attack

DWB hospital was on no strike listThe crew of a U.S. warplane that attacked a medical charity's hospital in northern Afghanistan last month provided its operational headquarters with coordinates for the site — which was on a no-strike list — before the assault, which killed and wounded dozens of civilians, according to an internal Pentagon investigation.

Results of the investigation, first reported by The Associated Press, said the crew of the warplane, a U.S. AC-130 gunship, relied on a physical description of the compound provided by Afghan forces, which led the crew to attack the wrong target, a hospital run by Doctors Without Borders (known by its French initials, MSF). It said the intended target, thought to be under Taliban control and being used in part as a prison, was 450 yards from the hospital.


ACLU Sues Indiana Gov. Mike Pence Over Syrian Refugee Ban

ACLU sues Mike Pence of Indiana- The American Civil Liberties Union has filed a lawsuit against Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R), challenging his efforts to block Syrian refugees from resettling within his state’s borders.

“This lawsuit is calling out Governor Pence on his unconstitutional bluff,” Judy Rabinovitz, the group’s deputy legal director for immigrants’ rights, said in a press release. “Singling out Syrian refugees for exclusion from Indiana is not only ethically wrong, it is unconstitutional. Period."


Laquan McDonald Video Shows Police Shooting Him 16 Times (GRAPHIC VIDEO)

Laquan McDonald VideoThe much-anticipated police dashboard cam video of a Chicago Police officer shooting and killing a 17-year-old was released Tuesday evening, offering a graphic and chilling view of what prosecutors say was first-degree murder.

The video of the slaying of Laquan McDonald was held by Chicago police for more than a year and finally released Tuesday after a judge ordered it. The release of the video touched off protests outside Chicago's Loop, but they remained peaceful as of 7 p.m.


Kerry Tells Netanyahu: U.S. Will Not Recognize Settlement Blocs in Return for West Bank Gestures

Kerry and NetanyahuSecretary of State John Kerry, currently on a visit to the region, told Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during their meeting on Tuesday that the United States would not agree to recognize construction in the West Bank settlement blocs in exchange for Israeli steps in the West Bank, as Netanyahu had suggested during their meeting in the U.S. two weeks ago.

Deputy State Department Spokesman Mark Toner told reporters during the daily briefing that the American answer to Netanyahu’s demand in this matter was “a big no.” He added that both Republican and Democratic administrations regarded construction in the settlements and Israeli attempts to create facts on the ground as undermining a two-state solution.


Another big corporation is flagrantly dodging tax. This must be outlawed

Another corporation evades taxesNo invention of modern capitalism so enrages the public as does the tax haven. When giant corporations and very rich people choose not to pay their taxes, and government turns a blind eye, faith in the state crumbles.

The decision of the American drugs giant, Pfizer, to merge with Dublin-based Allergan, thereby “relocating” its headquarters to Ireland is not because some wizard potion has been discovered in the hills of Connemara. It is to dodge tax. The same has applied to Starbucks, Amazon, Google and countless other global companies.


Kentucky Governor Restores Voting Rights To Nonviolent Former Felons

Beshear- Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear (D) signed an executive order on Tuesday that would automatically restore voting rights to a large number of former felons who have served their sentences. The executive order would not apply to individuals who were convicted of violent crimes, sex crimes, bribery or treason.

Beshear, who has served as governor for eight years, said at a press conference that more than 100,000 people would be affected. The Brennan Center for Justice says about 140,000 individuals are immediately eligible, and another 30,000 will be eligible over time.
