  • Stephen Hawking: Trump stance could damage Earth - BBC News

    Stephen Hawking says that US President Donald Trump's decision to pull out of the Paris climate agreement could lead to irreversible climate change. Prof Hawking said the action could put Earth onto a path that turns it into a hothouse planet like Venus. He also feared aggression was "inbuilt" in humans and that our best hope of survival was to live on other planets. The Cambridge professor spoke exclusively to BBC News to coincide with his 75th birthday celebrations. Arguably the world's most famous scientist, Prof Hawking has had motor neurone disease for most of his adult life. It has impaired his movement and ability to speak. Yet through it all, he emerged as one of the greatest minds of our time. His theories on black holes and the origin of the Universe have transformed our understa...

In 2000, she and five friends carried out Powershift -- a cross-Canada cycling campaign to raise awareness about climate change and air pollution. Severn received a Bachelor of Science in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from Yale University, and a Masters of Science in Ethnoecology from the University of Victoria, British Columbia, where she studied with Kwakwaka'wakw elders on the Pacific Northwest coast. She has completed several speaking tours in Japan with the Namakemono Club and has published several books including Tell the World (1993) The Day You Will Change the World (2003), and—as editor—Notes from Canada's Young Activists (2007). As a youth, Severn co-hosted the children's television series Suzuki's NatureQuest. Currently, Severn lives on the Pacific Westcoast archipelago of Haida Gwaii with her husband and little boy. Here she studies the Haida language and hosts APTN's Samaqan -- Water Stories—a series about First Nations and water issues, now heading into its third season. She is a board member of the David Suzuki Foundation and the Haida Gwaii Higher Education Society, a Spark for the Girls Action Foundation, and a sustainability speaker worldwide. She hopes her pursuit of traditional and scientific knowledge and dedication to using her voice will help her promote a culture of diversity, sustainability and joy.

In our situation, Mr. President, this fundamental question has pitted the black majority who are the right holders and therefore, primary stakeholders of our land, against an internationally well connected racial minority, largely of British descent, and brought in and sustained by British colonialism, now being supported and manipulated by the Blair government. We have said, even as we acquire our land, that we shall not deprive white farmers of land completely. Everyone of them is entitled to at least one farm - more than one farm indeed. Fifteen, twenty, thirty-five farms, one person. These are not figures I am getting out of my mind. They are real figures. So no farmer is being left without land." 5. Cutaway audience 6.
