Monday 10th December was the anniversary of the UN Declaration of Human Rights which was declared in December 1948. They are good principles to live by but its a shame that nearly all governments just pay lip service to them. Don’t think the world as such has progressed a lot since 1948. Here’s two short videos to explain them to you. See whether you believe your country measures up.
Making the news of late is the fact that Donald Trump U.S President has withdrawn the U.S.A from the Paris Climate Accord. It comes as little surprise with Trump’s pre-election pledges to big business and after his trip to Saudi Arabia with $480 billion in arms deals. The move I gather is done to largely protect the oil industry from alternative forms of energy being developed to met emissions targets and other anti-pollution measures. People will continue to breathe fumes in the larger cities and pollution will continue with industry refusing to clean up after it self. Clean water, clean air will be increasing difficult to manage. The move by the U.S has largely wrecked the accord with many countries now unlikely to meet targets. The impact on the world climates is unknown with more storms, droughts and floods likely. Its a very greedy action and everyone is likely to pick up the tab.
The final tally isn’t in yet but Hillary Clinton has conceded by phonecall to Donald Trump.
The day is finally here and its the 8th November- election day in the U.S.Don’t exactly know what way it will go but Mrs Clinton is the favourite of the establishment. Mr Trump is looked on as somewhat of a outsider. Hopefully the americans will put an end to it and have the results sometime on Tuesday night. There is apparently more than two candidates, who we never heard of so here is Jill stein of the Green party.
