It is all that is left of a programme, funded by some of the world’s biggest oil and chemical companies, that they said could solve a runaway ocean plastic waste crisis which is killing marine life - from plankton to whales - and clogging tropical beaches and coral reefs. The closure of Renew Oceans, which has not previously been reported, is a sign that an industry whose financial future is tied to the growth of plastic production is falling short of its targets to curb the resulting increase in waste, according to two environmental groups. The Alliance to End Plastic Waste, a Singapore-based nonprofit group set up two years ago by big oil and chemical companies, said on its website in November 2019 that its partnership with Renew Oceans would be expanded to the world’s most-polluted rivers and “ultimately could stop the flow of plastic into the planet’s ocean.”

Asian share markets retreated from highs on Monday as disappointing news on U.S. consumer spending tempered risk sentiment ahead of a closely-watched reading on the health of the Chinese economy. Also evident were doubts about how much of U.S. President-elect Joe Biden's stimulus package will make it through Congress given Republican opposition, and the risk of more mob violence at his inauguration on Wednesday. Chinese GDP data are expected to show growth picked up to an annual 6.1% last quarter, from 4.9% in the third quarter.
A former Supreme Court justice has been criticised after telling a woman with stage 4 cancer that her life was "less valuable" than others during a televised debate on coronavirus lockdowns. Lord Sumption made his comments while appearing as a guest on The Big Questions, which was broadcast on BBC One on Sunday morning. The programme, hosted by Nicky Campbell, aimed to debate the question: "Is lockdown punishing too many for the greater good?" During the show, Lord Sumption, who sat on the Supreme Court from 2012 to 2018, argued against lockdown measures for everyone, saying older and vulnerable people could isolate themselves "if they want to". He said he did not accept that "all lives are of equal value", adding: "My children's and my grandchildren's life is worth much more than mine because they've got a lot more of it ahead." Deborah James, another guest on the programme, who has stage 4 bowel cancer, said: "With all due respect, Lord Sumption, I'm the person who you say their life is not valuable. I live with metastatic bowel cancer." Lord Sumption then interrupted her to say: "I didn't say it wasn't valuable, I said it was less valuable." Ms James continued: "My response to that would be, who are you to question and put a value on life? In my view, and I think in many others, life is sacred and I don't think we should make those judgment calls. I feel very, very strongly about that." She added: "All life is worth saving regardless of what life it is that people are living." Prof Calum Semple, another guest, said he "strongly" disagreed with Lord Sumption's comments. The University of Liverpool academic said: "The value of life doesn't change at the age of 70."
Twitter suspended Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene for 12 hours on Sunday for violating rules regarding misinformation introduced by the social media site following the attack on the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 that resulted in the deaths of five people. Greene, a representative from Georgia, posted a Twitter thread on Sunday filled with conspiracy theories about the Senate runoff elections held in her state earlier this month, which saw Republican Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue lose their seats to Democrat challengers Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock. The victory in the longtime Republican-controlled state gave the Democrats control of the Senate with 50 seats and incoming Vice President Kamala Harris serving as the tiebreaker. Twitter said in a statement that Greene’s tweets violated the site’s “civic integrity policy,” leading the site to block users from replying or retweeting the tweets due to a “risk of violence.” The decision comes days after Twitter shut down over 70,000 accounts for promoting the QAnon conspiracy theory and other baseless election conspiracy theories, including President Donald Trump.

Greene denounced Twitter’s move in a statement claiming conservatives should not be “scared into submission by Socialists who want to end their way of life.” “Conservative Americans shouldn’t be afraid to speak their mind. They shouldn’t have to fear being cancelled by American corporations where they work, do business, and use services,” she said.
