Global

  • The Climate Talks in Paris Might Actually Work This Time (Bloomberg) United Nations climate talks set to begin in Paris next week promise to produce a landmark deal that has eluded diplomats for more than two decades. All of the Group of 20 nations, including the biggest developing countries - China, India and Brazil - have prepared to limit emissions into the next decade. Plunging costs for wind and solar power mean alternatives to fossil fuels are more viable. A big driver are the rapidly falling prices since 2009: solar down 67% and wind turbines down 28%.

U.S.

  • Supreme Court justice blocks Native Hawaiian vote count (Al Jazeera) A U.S. Supreme Court justice on Friday issued a temporary stay blocking the counting of votes in an election that would be a significant step toward Native Hawaiian self-governance. Justice Anthony Kennedy's order also stops the certification of any winners pending further direction from him or the entire court. Native Hawaiians are voting to elect delegates for a convention next year to come up with a self-governance document to be ratified by Native Hawaiians. Voting ends Monday. A group of Native Hawaiians and non-Hawaiians is challenging the election, arguing Hawaii residents who don't have Native Hawaiian ancestry are being excluded from the vote. They argue it's an unconstitutional, racially exclusive process.

  • Colorado Springs: Three killed in shooting at Planned Parenthood clinic (BBC News) A shooting at a family planning clinic in Colorado Springs has left two civilians and a police officer dead, with the suspected gunman under arrest. Nine other people were injured during the standoff at the Planned Parenthood clinic, which lasted five hours before the suspect surrendered. A number of people were trapped inside the building as shots were exchanged. The motive remains unclear. The Planned Parenthood group has drawn anti-abortion protests in the past.

Germany

  • Merkel under pressure from her own ahead of EU migration summit (Reuters) Chancellor Angela Merkel came under renewed pressure from her own conservatives on Friday to stem the flow of refugees into Germany as she heads to a weekend summit of European Union leaders and Turkey's prime minister. Roughly a million refugees and migrants fleeing war and deprivation in the Middle East, Africa and Asia are expected to arrive in Germany this year alone. This is a majority of the refugees reaching Europe.

Japan

  • Japan to resume whaling in Antarctic despite court ruling (BBC News) Japan has decided to resume hunting whales in the Antarctic after a break of more than a year. The decision comes despite an International Court of Justice (ICJ) ruling for Japan to cease all whaling. The Japanese fisheries agency said it would go ahead with a revised plan by the end of March next year. Under this plan, it will reduce the number of minke whales being caught each year by two thirds to just over 300.

India

  • Over 1000 Indian Islamic scholars issue world's biggest fatwa against ISIS (ABP Live) Hat tip to Sanjeev Kulkarni. For the first time ever, over 1000 (1050 to be exact), including muftis and imams of India, have issued a 15-volume fatwa against the leader, fighters and followers of the self-declared Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), also known as the Islamic State (IS). In a letter to United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon sent last month, these scholars described themselves as believers and followers of Islam, and strongly condemned the actions of the IS. They appealed to the international community to have a better understanding of what it means to be a Muslim and a follower of Islam, and not to abuse it by associating it with terrorist outfits like the IS or ISIS. Econintersect: Will we now start to hear more from other Muslim leaders who do not support the apocalyptic extremists trying to seize the banner of Islam?
