The top U.N. climate official on Tuesday chided Japan over its new plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, which environmental campaigners say shows no real ambition to increase existing efforts. All signatories of the 2015 Paris Agreement are supposed to submit a revised plan before this year's U.N. climate meeting in November.
President Donald Trump is poised to roll back ambitious Obama-era vehicle mileage standards and raise the ceiling on damaging fossil fuel emissions for years to come, gutting one of the United States' biggest efforts against climate change. The Trump administration is expected to release a final rule Tuesday on mileage standards through 2026. The change — making good on the rollback after two years of Trump threatening and fighting states and a faction of automakers that opposed the move — waters down a tough Obama mileage standard that would have encouraged automakers to ramp up production of electric vehicles and more fuel-efficient gas and diesel vehicles.
Climate change is imperiling the world's largest animals by increasing the likelihood of fatal collisions between whales and big ships that ply the same waters.

This was able to come through by the nations coming together and agreeing what is best for our people.

It's easy to stray away from God, which can lead you into the wrong direction. That is why going into the right direction is always more hard and challenging because you have to deserve your spot. Don't take these lessons as a chore though, it's more of a life guidance, such as how to be successful.
Ethics is definitely a must have for everyone's life. As I think about morality in my everyday life, I also question how I can apply ethics into my career dream; becoming a Child's Psychologist. There are many things when it comes down to what is right and wrong, therefore, we depend on our own beliefs and ethics to decide on what is the right thing for us or others to do. It can be about something as small or big, like what your morning routine consist of, or how to deal with problems at work.
