Money speaks louder than words in climate change fight

LONDON (Thomson Reuters Foundation) A growing movement of individuals and institutions selling off shares linked to fossil fuels has the power to galvanise global efforts to halt climate change, said the cofounder of a group that works with investors. The movement got a boost on Monday when the Rockefellers, who made their fortune from oil, along with other philanthropists and rich individuals, announced pledges to divest a total of $50 billion from fossil fuel assets #United States #India #Japan #France #Middle East #markets #Argentina #opinion

Australia says jets to help with air strikes against Islamic State

BAGHDAD (Reuters) Australia's defence minister David Johnston said on Monday during a visit to Baghdad that his country's fighter jets will play a part in U.S.led air strikes on Islamic State positions in Iraq. Johnston told reporters that up to eight Super Hornet aircraft will participate in a U.S.led coalition "delivering air strikes to degrade, disrupt and ultimately seek to destroy ISIL (Islamic State)". Australian Special Forces will be serving as advisers to Iraqi forces, Johnston said after a meeting with Iraq's Prime Minister Haider alAbadi. #facebook #India #Japan #Brazil #France #Australia #Argentina #United Kingdom #Latin America

British PM Cameron tries to quell party revolt over new powers for Scotland

MANCHESTER England (Reuters) British Prime Minister David Cameron tried to head off a rebellion in his Conservative party over a promise of new powers for Scotland, highlighting the difficulty of giving Scots what they want after last week's referendum on Scottish independence. Facing a difficult reelection contest next year, Cameron summoned a small group of disgruntled lawmakers to his country residence outside London on Monday to hear their complaints and to see what he could do to mollify them. One of the attendees, Conservative lawmaker James Wharton, said before the meeting Cameron needed to address concern that new powers for Scotland could disadvantage the rest of Britain, including England #facebook #India #Brazil #Technology #France #Russia #United Kingdom #british #conservatives

U.S. says won't link Iran cooperation on Islamic State to nuclear talks
