    Paris (AFP) -- United Nations chief Antonio Guterres on Thursday urged world leaders to favour clean energy solutions as they pour money into their economies to save them from a coronavirus-induced meltdown. Governments should exit coal, stop subsidising other fossil fuels, and pressure polluting industries to clean up their act in exchange for bailing them out, the UN Secretary-General told an International Energy Agency conference by video link. "Today I would like to urge all leaders to choose the clean energy route for three vital reasons -- health, science and economics," Guterres said. "Bailout support to sectors such as industry,...

    An Oregon man gunning for a seat at the political table has joined the ranks of now notorious hate crime ‘hoaxers’ Jussie Smollett and Bubba Wallace. A Hispanic candidate for an Oregon county commission seat has admitted he faked a ‘racist’ letter to himself, though he now says he never meant to “mislead” anyone. Jonathan Lopez, who ran an unsuccessful primary campaign for a seat on the Umatilla County commission in May, had initially claimed that a racially-tinged letter had been left in his mailbox. But in an email to the press on Monday, Hermiston Police Chief Jason Edmiston said...

    NASCAR’s only black driver Bubba Wallace on Monday denounced “HATE from the POTUS” after President Trump suggested that Wallace apologize for saying he was the victim of a hate crime. Wallace’s teammates this year reported an apparent noose in his garage stall that the FBI later determined was not a hate crime and had been in place there since October 2019. He was not the source of the original claim. Wallace’s response to Trump came in a tweeted statement that he addressed to “the next generation and little ones following my foot steps.”

The FBI sent 15 agents to investigate this "crime." Fifteen.They determined that this was, predictably, a hoax. U.S. Attorney Jay Town and FBI Special Agent in Charge Johnnie Sharp Jr. said its investigation determined ‘although...
