    Golocal247.com news

    The authors of the study predict a 58 percent chance that the next few years will be “anomalously warm,” with a 69 percent chance that earth’s oceans will be too. The study found that that warming trend is not just the result of a steady increase in human-made climate change driven by emissions of greenhouse gases. The study used data from 10 climate-change models and found that natural variabilities were the cause of a global warming “hiatus” in the early 2000s.

  • Some Venezuelans, alarmed by Maduro's measures, speed up plans to flee

    Maduro on Friday stunned the South American nation by announcing a 96 percent devaluation and vowing to peg the bolivar currency to Venezuela's new 'petro', a cryptocurrency that experts have cast doubt on as a functional financial instrument. "I am looking for flights to leave on Wednesday, any way I can," Narvaez said in Venezuela's western oil hub of Punto Fijo, home to massive but deteriorated oil refineries. "I am sure this is going to get worse because the man's ideas lack all logic." Maduro, who argues that he is the victim of a Washington-led "economic war" designed to sabotage his administration through sanctions, said that using the petro will abolish the "tyranny" of the dollar and lead to an economic rebirth in Venezuela, an OPEC member state home to the world's biggest crude oil reserves.

  • Shots fired at US embassy in Turkey amid escalating row between Nato allies

    Golocal247.com news

    Several gunshots were fired at the US embassy in Ankara from a vehicle on Monday, amid rising tensions between Turkey and Washington.  An unidentified assailant or assailants fired six bullets at an embassy security gate from a passing white vehicle around 5.30am local time, three bullets hitting an iron door and a window, the Ankara governor's office said in a statement. The early morning attack coincided with a deepening row between the two countries over the trial of a US pastor in Turkey. The embassy is closed this week for a public holiday to mark the Islamic Eid al-Adha festival. The attack on the embassy in the Turkish capital was a clear attempt to "create chaos", the spokesman for President Tayyip Erdogan said on Monday, condemning the early morning drive-by attack. Six bullets were fired at the US embassy in Ankara from a passing car Credit:  AP/Burhan Ozbilici David Gainer, the embassy spokesman said: "We can confirm a security incident took place at the US embassy early this morning. "We have no reports of any injuries and we are investigating the details. We thank the Turkish National Police for their rapid response."

  • Iran unveils new fighter jet as president says US 'knows the consequences' of an attack on Tehran

    Golocal247.com news

    Iran unveiled a new fighter jet as President Hassan Rouhani ratcheted up tension with the US by suggesting Washington would not attack the Islamic Republic because it was too powerful. Iran has expanded its military presence in the region by sending troops to support President Bashar al-Assad in Syria's civil war, but years of sanctions have reduced its air force to several dozen old aircraft. The new Kowsar, claimed to be a domestically-built jet, was unveiled at a ceremony as Mr Rouhani said Iran should be prepared to confront its enemies. "We should make ourselves ready to fight against the military powers who want to take over our territory and resources," he said. "Why does the United States not attack us? Because of our power, because it knows the consequences," he said. The new Kowsar fighter jet is claimed to be a domestically-built jet Credit: AFP Iranian television footage showed clips of the aircraft taxiing and taking off. It is named after a word that appears in the Quran which means "an abundance of good," and is interpreted by some as a reference to the Prophet Mohamed's progeny whom Shia Muslims revere.  Iran had previously unveiled in 2013 another domestically built fighter jet dubbed Qaher - vanquisher in Arabic - but there were doubts that it could even take off.  The Kowsar is capable of carrying various weapons and will be used for short aerial-support missions, according to state news agency Tasnim. Kowsar refers to a river in paradise and is the title of a chapter in the Koran. The ceremony on Tuesday came days after the country's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamanei also said Iran's military prowess would deter an armed confrontation with the US, which pulled out of an international deal to curb Iran's nuclear programme in May and reimposed sanctions. US President Donald Trump had warned Iran not to threaten his country. Last month, he wrote on Twitter in an all cap message that Iran would "suffer consequences the likes of which few throughout history have ever suffered" if Tehran threatened the US. He has also has offered to meet Iran's leadership, saying "if they want to meet, that's fine, if they don't want to meet, I couldn't care less," in an interview on Monday with Reuters. Iran has rejected the offer and said the US could not be trusted. "It's not only us who do not trust America. Today even Europe and China do not trust them, even American allies like Canada have lost their trust."

    CARACAS/VALENCIA, Venezuela (Reuters) - Venezuela on Monday slashed five zeros from prices as part of a broad economic plan that President Nicolas Maduro says will tame hyperinflation but critics call another raft of failed socialist policies that will push the chaotic country deeper into crisis. Streets were quiet and shops were closed due to a national holiday that Maduro decreed for the first day of the new pricing plan for the stricken economy, which the International Monetary Fund has estimated will have 1 million percent inflation by year end. The price change comes with a 3,000 percent minimum wage hike, tax increases meant to shore up state coffers and a plan to peg salaries, prices and the country's exchange rate to the petro, an elusive state-backed cryptocurrency.
