Biden Wants to Be the Climate President. He’ll Need Some Help From Xi Jinping.

first_imgThis week, the Biden transition team said the president-elect had discussed climate change in initial conversations with several European and Asia-Pacific allies. Despite the Chinese Foreign Ministry statement on Friday, Mr. Xi has not called on Mr. Biden since the election. Mr. Xi faces his own tests. China’s emissions continue to grow, even as those of United States have declined significantly since 2005, though falling short of the reductions that the United States had promised under the Paris accord. China’s emissions are on a path to continue growing until 2030; only after that is it expected to decline, and rapidly, according to a government-backed research group.- Advertisement – That’s nowhere near what’s needed to get the world to the ultimate goal of the Paris climate accord, which is to prevent global average temperatures from rising more than 2 degrees Celsius, or 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit, above preindustrial levels by letting countries set their own emissions targets every five years and exerting diplomatic peer pressure on each other to be more ambitious.An analysis by two research organizations, the Asia Society Policy Institute and Climate Analytics, to be issued next week but reviewed by The New York Times, concludes that China would have to peak its carbon emissions by 2025, five years earlier than the country has promised, and phase out coal by 2040 in order to keep global temperatures close to the upper limits laid out in the Paris Agreement.The test of Mr. Xi’s climate ambitions rests in large part on China’s next five-year plan, an economic road map for the country that is due in the spring. It remains to be seen how that plan will handle China’s addiction to coal, the dirtiest fossil fuel, which supplies the bulk of the country’s electricity despite its expansion of solar and wind power.- Advertisement – China is the world’s biggest coal consumer. It accounts for the world’s largest fleet of new coal-fired power plants, according to the research and advocacy group Urgewald. Four of the world’s top coal-plant builders are Chinese.China’s five-year-plan will come out shortly after Mr. Biden comes into office and issues his own road map to re-engineer the American economy for the era of climate change. That, several diplomats and analysts said, could spur a virtuous competition.“There would be a race to the top of a low-carbon world,” said Byford Tsang, a China specialist at E3G, a London-based research group.- Advertisement –center_img – Advertisement –last_img read more

Former Real Madrid and Manchester City forward Emmanuel Adebayor has joined Olimpia, the reigning Paraguayan champions announced on Tuesday. The Togo forward, who also played for Arsenal, Tottenham and Crystal Palace during a decade-long stay in the English Premier League, had been a free agent since December when he left Turks Kayserispor.

Woods grouped with McIlroy, Koepka at prestigious Memorial tournament

first_imgOHIO: Five-time champion Tiger Woods has been grouped with World No.1 golfer Rory McIlroy and four-time major winner Brooks Koepka at the prestigious Memorial tournament in Ohio. The tournament is scheduled to be played behind closed doors in the wake of coronavirus pandemic between July 16-19. This will be Wood’s first appearance on the golf course in five months as he last featured in an event in February when he took part in the Genesis Invitational in Los Angeles. Woods will be eyeing a record-breaking 83rd PGA Tour wins when he takes to the event at Muirfield Village Golf Club. He had equalled Sam Snead’s all-time record of 82 titles at Zozo Championships in Japan last October. A variety of changes will be on offer for Woods in the wake of coronavirus pandemic. The 15-time major winner is used to having spectators cheer his every shot but this time, there will be absolutely no one besides the people involved in the tournament. “It’s not just that everything looks different, but the energy is clearly different,” Woods told reporters earlier this week. “There’s nothing to feed off. You make a big putt or a big par, or a big chip or hit a hell of a shot, there’s no-one there. “All the distractions, the noise, the excitement, the energy. It’s just a silent and different world,” he added. IANS Also Watch: Bail for Akhil Gogoi in 3 Cases, 2 More Cases to Golast_img read more

Football News Manchester City eye quadruple next season after stumbling in UEFA Champions League

first_img‘Never get perfection’  The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss whose City side, thanks to a quirk of the fixture list next play Tottenham again in the Premier League on Saturday, added: “Who knows what’s going to happen in the future? The present is this game and I will try. “I will dream next season of fighting for the four titles, that’s my dream.” Despite the traumatic nature of the aggregate reverse on away goals against Spurs, City are still just six wins — five in the league and the FA Cup Final — away from becoming the first English team ever to win a domestic treble. Rather than forget the disappointment of midweek, the City manager hopes the memory of that painful loss will inspire his side, although the Catalan boss accepted he could not be sure of his star-studded team’s reaction.   “I don’t know,” he said. “Before the game, you don’t know how you will play, you never know how you’ll react, we were out other times, and we reacted well. Perfection you never get, never, but you have to try to achieve it. Perfection would be 4-0, it was 4-3, or 7-0,” Guardiola explained.               “We create chances to score seven. So perfection never exists, but you have to try.” Just like City’s Champions League exit two years ago, when they scored five times in the home leg with Monaco only to go out on away goals, Guardiola’s disappointment was amplified by the fact they scored four times against Spurs on Wednesday in a losing effort.  “We have to improve the defensive department in this stage of the competition and be more solid but in general we want to improve,” he said. “But the way we play, we’ve scored 154 goals, but the way we play with a good game for everyone here and around the world we’re not going to change.” Manchester City can become the first English team to win the Domestic Treble.Manchester City need five wins in Premier League to seal the title.Manchester City will face Watford for the FA Cup title. For all the Latest Sports News News, Football News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. highlights Manchester: Pep Guardiola will target the quadruple again next season with Manchester City despite the disappointment of this week’s Champions League exit against Tottenham. Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino and Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp — Guardiola’s closest challenger for the Premier League title — have both advanced to the semi-finals of Europe’s leading club competition. But, unlike Guardiola, that duo has placed far less emphasis on the domestic cup competitions, fielding weakened sides in the early rounds of the League Cup and FA Cup. By contrast Guardiola, in contrast, has always fielded full, or near-full, strong teams, leaving him open to accusations fatigue is hampering his team in the season’s closing stages. Nevertheless, the City manager, who won the League Cup against Chelsea and faces an FA Cup final date with Watford next month, is adamant he would never deliberately attempt to be knocked out of the competition.  “I don’t understand in my profession, it is not to say I don’t want to win, I don’t understand that,” said Guardiola. “If I lose it’s because the opponent beat me or beat us. I’m not going to drop any competitions because maybe in the future it will be better.”last_img read more
