Climate change may lead to an increase in malaria in certain spots around the world. But in other places, it may have little or no impact on the mosquito-borne disease, according to an expert panel convened at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.Temperature and precipitation changes driven by climate change aren’t the only factors influencing malaria transmission, said the speakers at the Oct. 23 event, held as part of Harvard Worldwide Week. (Read about another Harvard Worldwide Week program on malaria eradication approaches.) Other factors include government programs to prevent transmission, preparedness for outbreaks, population size, and acquired immunity levels among populations, and those vary from nation to nation and region to region.And given the fact that climate change is politically controversial, it’s crucial for scientists to consider all available data and to communicate clearly about the complex interplay between climate and other factors in shaping disease trends, said Marcia Castro, associate professor of demography at Harvard Chan School. If scientists present conflicting information, “climate deniers make a feast of this,” she said.Others who spoke at the event—titled “The Effect of Shifting Global Health & Climate Change Policies on Malaria Eradication”—included Aaron Bernstein, associate director of the Center for Health and the Global Environment; Alan Court, senior advisor, United Nations Secretary General’s Special Envoy for Health in Agenda 2030 and for Malaria; and Elfatih Eltahir, Breene M. Kerr Professor of Hydrology and Climate at MIT.Eltahir, an expert in hydrology and climate, discussed studies conducted in several locations in Africa in which researchers examined a host of variables—such as precipitation, temperature, altitude, the mosquito life cycle, and patterns of water availability that could influence mosquito breeding—in order to create computer models predicting future malaria transmission. He noted that, in some locations, climate change is expected to produce wetter weather—which could help mosquitoes breed—but that temperatures are also predicted to increase, which could harm mosquitoes. In essence, these two effects could cancel each other out, resulting in either similar or even decreased levels of malaria in parts of Africa. “In general, the story of climate change and malaria in Africa is not a terribly bad story,” Eltahir said.In response to audience questions about the difficult politics surrounding climate change, Bernstein acknowledged that the Trump administration is not taking climate change seriously. But he pointed out that Europe, as well as a number of U.S. states—including economic powerhouse California—are bolstering efforts to reduce carbon emissions. “There’s a very good chance that the global economy is going to be taking an irretrievable move toward decarbonization,” he said. “The good news is that the momentum for most the world community is in that direction.” Read Full Story

Bradley Manning was sentenced to 35 years in federal prison Wednesday, Aug. 21, 2013, for leaking confidential materials about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to whistleblower website WikiLeaks. (Artwork courtesy of Deb Van Poolen, www.debvanpoolen.com)U.S. Army Pfc. Bradley Manning, convicted of leaking more than 700,000 classified military and state department documents to anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks, was sentenced Wednesday to 35 years in federal prison, with 1,294 days credit and dishonorable discharge.Military judge Col. Denise Lind announced her decision against the 25-year-old just after 10 a.m. from the Fort Meade, Md. courtroom where a military trial into the disclosures—the largest leak of confidential materials in U.S. history—has been proceeding since June. Manning has been in custody of the U.S. Army since his arrest in 2010.Manning’s defense attorney David Coombs, at a press conference held several hours after the ruling, said he and other members of his team broke down in tears at the news, while his client did his best to cheer them up.“‘It’s okay,’” Coombs says Manning told them. “‘It’s alright. Don’t worry about it, it’s alright. I know you did your best. It’s okay.’”The ruling caps a more than three-year-long legal saga against Manning both unprecedented in its scope and controversy.Enlisting in 2007, Manning had been deployed to Baghdad as an intelligence analyst in 2009. In February 2013 he pleaded guilty to 10 of the 22 charges against him, including leaking classified cockpit gun-sight footage of U.S. Apache helicopters killing a dozen unarmed civilians and two Reuters photojournalists in Iraq in 2007. Manning told Lind during a lengthy statement Feb. 28 that the “most alarming” part of the video—dubbed “Collateral Murder“—for him “was the seemingly delightful blood-lust the Aerial Weapons Team seemed to have.”“They dehumanized the individuals they were engaging and seemed not to value human life, and referred to them as quote-unquote ‘dead bastards,’ and congratulated each other on their ability to kill in large numbers,” he told Lind during his statement. “At one point in the video there is an individual on the ground attempting to crawl to safety. The individual is seriously wounded. Instead of calling for medical attention to the location, one of the aerial weapons team crew members verbally asks for the wounded person to pick up a weapon so that he can have a reason to engage.“For me, this seemed similar to a child torturing ants with a magnifying glass,” he added.Manning said the fact the footage had been sought by Reuters through Freedom of Information requests, yet the news agency was told it may have been destroyed, further motivated him to send it to WikiLeaks.Manning has spent the past three years leading up to his June court martial in pre-trial confinement, oftentimes subject to harsh and unlawful treatment. Time served will be credited to his sentence, some of which he spent in solitary confinement, without a window, clothes or a blanket. Lind ruled these conditions illegal and in January 2013 credited Manning with 112 days toward his ultimate sentence.His court proceedings were also conducted without the typical transparency provided in civil court. No official court transcripts were made accessible to the public. Audio and video feed for the handful of media supplying continuous coverage of the proceedings many times cut out. Periodically, the court would enter closed sessions, further restricting public access.“Every day I left thinking ‘Why are we in a closed session?’” Coombs told reporters. “There was nothing that was said, in my mind, that warranted a closed session.”Often, the only news of the trial was from a handful of journalists and activists who sacrificed much to provide the public with a record: journalist Alexa O’Brien, Kevin Gosztola of FireDogLake, Adam Klasfeld of Courthouse News Service and the Bradley Manning Support Network’s Nathan Fuller [all the subject of a July Press cover story multi-media package].Manning’s prosecution had been viewed by whistleblower advocacy groups and civil rights activists as the latest front in an ongoing war by the Obama Administration against American civil liberties, with tremendous ramifications for free speech, freedom of the press and investigative journalism, specifically. O’Brien called Manning’s verdict “an act of aggression against a free press, civic society, and the conscience of a young man.”Prosecutors and Manning’s defense team made closing arguments Monday. Capt. Joe Morrow requested the intelligence analyst be sentenced to at least 60 years, telling Lind, “He deserves to spend the majority of his remaining life in prison.” Defense attorney David Coombs argued Manning’s actions simply didn’t warrant that amount of time and punishment, citing that the court record reflected a naive, young, isolated soldier with emotional issues who truly believed he could change the world, “end the war in Iraq…end the war in Afghanistan…future wars.”Coombs had asked the judge for a sentence allowing Manning “to have a life.”Under military law, his case will immediately be reviewed by the convening authority, U.S. Army Military District of Washington Commander Maj. Gen. Jeffrey Buchanan. Manning can petition him with letters for clemency and Buchanan can reduce or strike a guilty finding, but not add any additional time to his sentence. Then, if Manning is convicted to more than one year, his case will immediately be reviewed by the Army Court of Criminal Appeals. If its decided the case warrants their review, Manning’s case will then go to the Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces. The U.S. Supreme Court can also review the case, if the justices wish.Manning will serve his time at Fort Leavenworth in Kansas.Coombs, who will be representing Manning during the clemency and appeals process, told reporters at Wednesday’s post-sentencing press conference he had asked President Obama for a pardon, adding that Manning’s sentence was more time than what murderers and child molesters he’d defended received.“This was designed to send a message,” he said of the government’s prosecution. “The loser is anybody who hopes that you’ll have whistleblowers in the future willing to [talk to journalists].“This does send a message, and it’s a chilling one, and it’s endorsed at the highest levels,” he continued.“Bradley Manning is a man of honor.”[View the story “Bradley Manning Sentenced to 35 Years in Leak Case” on Storify]

Bystander video of the incident — which captured Floyd calling for his mother and saying he couldn’t breathe — has sparked two weeks of mostly peaceful demonstrations across the country.On Sunday, protesters in cities including Washington, New York and Winter Park, Florida, began focusing their outrage over the death of the unarmed Floyd into demands for police reform and social justice. The council of the US city of Minneapolis voted late Sunday to dismantle and rebuild the police department, after the death in custody of George Floyd sparked nationwide protests about racism in law enforcement, pushing the issue onto the national political agenda.Floyd was killed on May 25 when white Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin pressed his knee on the unarmed black man’s neck for nearly nine minutes. Chauvin has been charged with second-degree murder and is to appear in court Monday.”We committed to dismantling policing as we know it in the city of Minneapolis and to rebuild with our community a new model of public safety that actually keeps our community safe,” Council President Lisa Bender told CNN. Mitt Romney, a Republican senator from Utah, joined a group of Christian protesters marching towards the White House. He tweeted photos of himself in the procession, along with the simple caption, “Black Lives Matter.”Although Romney has been a rare Republican voice of opposition to Trump, he was joined last week by Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski, who said criticism of Trump was overdue.Trump’s tough approach to putting down protests continued to draw exceptional rebukes from top retired military officers, a group normally loath to criticize a civilian leader.Former Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman Colin Powell joined them Sunday, saying Trump had “drifted away” from the Constitution. Powell, a Republican moderate, said Trump had weakened America’s position around the world and that in November’s presidential election he would support Democrat Joe Biden.This isn’t a battlefield’ Condoleezza Rice, who succeeded Powell as secretary of state under President George W. Bush, told CBS she would “absolutely” oppose using the military against peaceful protesters, adding, “This isn’t a battlefield.”The president has ordered National Guard troops to begin withdrawing from the nation’s capital, whose Mayor Muriel Bowser, a Democrat who jousted with Trump over the use of force in her city, told Fox News there had been no arrests on Saturday despite the protests which saw thousands moving through the capital’s streets.A week earlier, however, there were fires and vandalism.Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf told ABC that Washington had been “a city out of control” and denied a problem of systemic racism among police.The Trump administration has proposed no specific policy changes in response to the widespread outrage over Floyd’s death.Members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) said they would introduce legislation in the House of Representatives on Monday to make policing more accountable. The legislation is expected to make it easier to sue police officers over deadly incidents, to ban the sort of choke holds that led to Floyd’s death, and to establish a national database to record police misconduct.’A lot of work to do’ One member of the caucus, Representative Val Demings of Florida, a former police chief in the city of Orlando, told ABC that “systemic racism is always the ghost in the room.” “What we have to do as a nation is hold police accountable,” said Demings, who has been mentioned as a possible running mate for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.It is unclear what support the proposed reforms might find in the Republican-controlled Senate — or whether Trump might sign such legislation into law.Some jurisdictions have moved already to embrace reforms — starting with bans on the use of tear gas and rubber bullets against protesters. New York Mayor Bill de Blasio told reporters Sunday that he would cut the city’s police budget and shift some funds to youth and social services, local media reported. New York Mayor Bill de Blasio speaks to an estimated 10,000 people as they gather in Brooklyns Cadman Plaza Park for a memorial service for George Floyd, the man killed by a Minneapolis police officer on June 04, 2020 in New York City. Floyds brother, Terrence, local politicians and civic and religious leaders also attended the event before marching over the Brooklyn Bridge. (Getty Images/AFP/Spencer Platt)Trump seized on the call by some protesters to slash police funding to attack Biden, tweeting without evidence that “not only will Sleepy Joe Biden DEFUND THE POLICE, but he will DEFUND OUR MILITARY!”The president is scheduled to host a roundtable with law enforcement on Monday. Biden, who has accused Trump of fanning “the flames of hate,” plans to travel to Houston on Monday to visit Floyd’s family. He will also record a message to be read at Floyd’s funeral on Tuesday.Topics : Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey, however, is against getting rid of the department, and the head of the city’s powerful police union, Bob Kroll, appeared on stage last year with President Donald Trump.The vote by a majority of councilors came a day after Frey was booed at and asked to leave a “Defund the Police” rally. He later told AFP he supported “massive structural reform to revise this structurally racist system” but not “abolishing the entire police department.”
