Polish schoolgirl takes climate fight to parliament

Source: Reuters

WARSAW (Reuters) - A teenager started her summer holidays by campaigning in front of Poland’s parliament on Friday in a bid to get politicians to act on climate change before an election later this year.

Thirteen-year-old Inga Zasowska takes her inspiration from Swedish schoolgirl Greta Thunberg’s weekly school strikes, and plans to follow in her footsteps by sitting outside parliament every Friday in July urging lawmakers to act on global warming.

“At least in this one situation, politicians should unite and together take decisive action with the aim of cutting greenhouse gas emissions,” Zasowska told journalists, flanked by supporters carrying banners.

“I don’t want empty words during the election campaign, I want real action from politicians — now, at this moment! This is the last moment to stop the climate catastrophe!”

BY RACHEL FRAZIN - 06/28/19 10:55 AM EDT

Democratic presidential candidate Julián Castro saw the strongest fundraising day of his campaign after his appearance in the Democratic debates this week.

The former Housing and Urban Development Secretary received an increase of nearly three times his previous best fundraising day following his Wednesday night debate performance, his campaign said in a Friday statement. He also received nearly three times the number of donations.

Over Wednesday and Thursday, the campaign raised 3,266 percent more money than it had the previous two days, according to the statement.

Front-Runner Joe is being reported as "damaged" by Harris today, though I still think a Biden-Warren ticket is the most likely outcome a year from now. But it's no surprise that some Dems are going to be giving second-tier candidates another look over the weekend.

Trudeau's Government Approves Expansion of Divisive Trans Mountain Pipeline

OTTAWA — Canada will move forward with a pipeline project that has set the country’s provinces against one another, opened rifts among its Indigenous communities and prompted major protests.

The project — which will expand the Trans Mountain pipeline that links Alberta’s oil sands to British Columbia — is a critical component of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s longstanding position that Canada needs to maintain a strong energy industry to support its efforts to combat climate change. His government bought the pipeline from its American owners a year ago to ensure its expansion.

“We are a government that cares deeply about the environment, and we care just as deeply about the economic success of Canadians,” Mr. Trudeau said at a news conference in Ottawa, announcing his cabinet’s approval of the expansion. “This isn’t an either-or proposition.”

“It is in Canada’s national interest to protect our environment and invest in tomorrow,” he added, “while making sure people can feed their families today.”
