Queen Elizabeth and Greta Thunberg Are Sending the Same Message on Climate Change. Will World Leaders Listen?
More than 75 years separate Queen Elizabeth II from climate activist Greta Thunberg, but both share similar reservations with world leaders who talk a good game on climate change but aren’t prepared to back it up with action.

I’ve been hearing all about COP,” the Queen said in conversation with her daughter-in-law Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, and a Welsh official at the opening of the Welsh parliament. &l...

For much of the pandemic, Aotearoa New Zealand’s COVID-19 response has ranked as one of the best in the world. We have been living in a parallel world, one of a small handful of countries to follow an elimination strategy. That strategy has meant that we have had very few COVID-19 cases and deaths. And when I say very few, I mean it. Until August this year, there had been just over 2,800 confirmed cases and 26 deaths. We have lived much of the pandemic with daily life almost unrestricted. As someone who follows the global situation closely it has been surreal. I’ve spent much of this pandemic worried that New Z...

Better Late than Never, but Act Now
By Jomo Kwame SundaramKUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, Oct 12 2021 (IPS) The world should now be more aware of likely COVID-19 devastation unless urgently checked.
