WASHINGTON (AP) — G. Balachandran turned 80 this spring — a milestone of a birthday in India, where he lives. If not for the coronavirus pandemic, he would have been surrounded by family members who gathered to celebrate with him.
But with the virus ravaging his homeland, Balachandran had to settle for congratulatory phone calls. Including one from his rather famous niece: Vice President Kamala Harris.
“Unfortunately, because of the COVID, I cannot have such an elaborate function,” the retired academic said in a Zoom interview Thursday from his home in New Delhi.
Harris' uncle says he spoke with the vice president and her husband, Doug Emhoff, for quite a while. To close out the conversation, Harris assured him she’d take care of his daughter — her cousin — who lives in Washington.

Harris' uncle says he spoke with the vice president and her husband, Doug Emhoff, for quite a while. To close out the conversation, Harris assured him she’d take care of his daughter — her cousin — who lives in Washington.
“Don’t worry, Uncle. I’ll take care of your daughter. I talk to her quite a lot,” Balachandran recalls Harris telling him in their March conversation.
It was the last time they had a chance to speak. Since then, the coronavirus has raged out of control in India, overwhelming the nation’s health care system and killing hundreds of thousands of people.

Worth 1000 words: how world saw Australia’s black summer & how we did
Australia’s ‘black summer’ of bushfires was depicted on the front pages of the world’s media with images of wildlife and habitat destruction, caused by climate change, while in Australia the toll on ordinary people remained the visual front-page focus.
Visual communication analysis of bushfire related front-page images in Sydney Morning Herald over three months and 119 overseas media outlets’ front pages on the megafires.
International media imagery portrayed our ‘black summer’ as an environmental and ecological apocalypse
In Australia, front-page images were dominated by the megafires’ effect on people particularly firefighters.

West Bengal has been in news due to its acrimonious pre- and post-poll atmosphere. Today, it looks just the obverse of what it would have been in the times of Rabindranath Tagore. Bengal stands mutilated by the past 40 years’ long spell of divisive politics. Santiniketan’s founder would not have imagined the level of degeneration to which this land of poets, writers, and social reformers has descended.
Tagore won the Nobel Prize in 1913, a first for India under British rule. Western literati had gone gaga over his ‘Gitanjali’. His vast oeuvre also consisted of song-poems that later came to be known as Rabindra Sangeet. ‘Ekla Chalo Re’ exhorts the listener to continue his/her journey, despite the lack of company, support or guidance from friends and peers. This iconic message reflects in the great deeds of many achievers who might not even be aware of Tagore, but have epitomised the essence of this poem.

Bid to give Scots legal human right to healthy environment - as ministers miss targets to stop species extinction
A coalition of environmental groups are demanding that the right to a healthy and safe environment is enshrined in Scots law as a human right in advance of the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow.
The Scottish Environment LINK (SEL) coalition of more than 30 leading charities remains concerned that not enough is being done to protect the nation’s natural environment, wildlife and air and water quality after the UK quit Europe at the end of the year.

Taking the road to COP26

Property Week asked UKGBC’s 10 built environment climate ambassadors to answer the following question: ‘What do you think the main priorities should be for businesses ahead of COP26?’ This is how they responded:

From Covid tunnel to net zero funnel

The race to COP26 is on. A year and a half after Property Week and UKGBC first launched the Climate Crisis Challenge campaign, the much-anticipated – and long-delayed – conference is finally visible on the horizon.

How to invest if you believe in a clean energy future

How to invest if you believe in a clean energy future
It’s well and truly known by now that we need to take action and invest in a brighter future – and one way to do that is through clean energy.
From global protests to Greta Thunberg, the past few years have shed a light  on the climate emergency that currently grips our planet. With that in mind, it’s only natural that we’ve become more conscious of how our spending and investment can have an impact. From the sustainable clothing brands we chose to support, to developing a stock portfolio that reflects our ideals: the way we allocate our money is key to creating lasting change.

Who's more right, Greta Thunberg or Bill Gates?

Bill Gates, right, founder of Microsoft, advocates new technologies to attain sustainable carbon-free growth. Greta Thunberg, the young Swedish environmentalist, believes we must radically change our behaviour. (Photos: Reuters)
Some people say that to avoid the threat of catastrophic harm to human welfare posed by global warming, we must radically change our behaviour -- cease flying, use bicycles, and give up red meat. Others believe that new technologies can deliver carbon-free growth. So, who is right: Greta Thunberg, who advocates the former course, or Bill Gates, who just wrote a book advocating the latter?
In the long run, techno-optimism looks justified. As two new reports from the Energy Transitions Commission describe, zero-carbon electricity and hydrogen, which today account for only 20% of energy use, could account for 75% by mid-century, and clean energy will be cheaper by then than dirty energy is today. Solar electricity already costs less than coal power; battery costs have collapsed and will keep falling. The cost of producing hydrogen from electrolysis will plummet in the next ten years, too.

HRW: ‘Climate Crisis’ Threatens Maternal Health in the U.S.
6 May 2021
Human Rights Watch (HRW) warned Thursday extreme weather events caused by global warming pose a dire threat to maternal health in the U.S. especially for “women of color.”
“Climate impacts are expected to be more extreme again this year and threaten to worsen the maternal health crisis in the US,” writes Skye Wheeler of HRW’s Women’s Rights Division.
“That crisis is marked by unjust inequities in maternal mortality, illness, and premature birth,” Wheeler asserts, “with worse rates for Black, Indigenous, and other women of color than white women, and for women living in poverty compared to the better-off.”

Designer calls out fashion’s richest man on Thunberg attack

Vivienne Westwood designer Andreas Kronthaler hit out Saturday at fashion’s most powerful man Bernard Arnault for attacking Greta Thunberg.
The French billionaire and head of the LVMH conglomerate that owns labels like Louis Vuitton, Dior, Givenchy, and pop idol Rihanna’s new brand Fenty, said the teenage climate activist was “surrendering to total catastrophism... that is likely to demoralise the young.
“She doesn’t offer anything other than criticism,” he told reporters in Paris earlier this week as he launched his group’s new green drive.
The world’s second richest man said he was strongly against “her extremely negative” stance.
