  • Ambiga: Who donated RM2.6b to Najib?

    Prominent lawyer Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan urged Malaysia’s graftbusters today to reveal the source of the RM2.6 billion that they claimed had been deposited by “donors” into Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s personal bank accounts.

In my view, the statement by MACC still causes me concern as it means whoever donated such large sums is likely to expect benefit,” said the former Bar Council president, using the acronym for the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission.

  • Climate: No 'Plan B' for oceans, says study

    Technology to drain heat-trapping CO2 from the atmosphere may slow global warming, but will not reverse climate damage to the ocean on any meaningful timescale, according to research published Monday. At the same time, a second study reported, even the most aggressive timetable for reducing greenhouse-gas emissions will need a big boost from largely untested carbon removal schemes to cap warming to two degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) above pre-industrial levels. Both studies, coming months before 195 nations meet in Paris in a bid to forge a climate pact, conclude that deep, swift cuts in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions are crucial.
