"It makes fundamental economic sense" for countries to push forward on tackling climate change because of the benefits it will bring in terms of food, water and energy, as well as employment," Christiana Figueres told a carbon market conference in Barcelona. #Economy #United States #China #climate change #South Africa #Africa #United Kingdom #Mexico

Turkish police fire tear gas, water cannon at May Day protesters| Reuters

ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkish police fired tear gas and water cannon at hundreds of stone-throwing May Day protesters on Friday, after they defied a ban and tried to march on Istanbul's Taksim Square. Europe's biggest city was under a security lockdown as thousands of police manned barricades and closed streets to stop demonstrations at Taksim, a traditional rallying ground for leftists that saw weeks of unrest in 2013. Riot police unleashed water cannon and chased protesters down side streets in the nearby Besiktas neighbourhood and also they also fired off canisters of tear gas, a Reuters reporter said. #Business #Sports #France #climate change #science #Africa #Italy #opinion #lifestyle
