Britain has to solve its heating problem to meet its ambitious climate goals – CNN

London (CNN Business)The United Kingdom made history last year when it became the first major economy to commit to pumping no more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere than it removes by 2050.

Dozens of countries have since followed its lead to achieve “net zero” emissions, and with three decades to go before the deadline, Britain’s progress provides a promising blueprint.
Its carbon emissions were 44% below 1990 levels in 2018, with renewable energy now accounting for 33% of its energy mix and coal contributing just over 5%. That is thanks in large part to its success with offshore wind and focus on nuclear energy.

Lenox Square Mall: What we know about Saturday’s officer-involved shooting | 11alive.com

ATLANTA — One suspect is hospitalized and another in custody after an officer says he was forced to open fire to break up an armed robbery in-progress at Lenox Square Mall on Saturday.

Police said one suspect was shot and is in serious but stable condition after an attempted robbery in a Lenox Square parking deck when he refused to drop his weapon for a patroling Atlanta Police sergeant. Deputy Chief Jeff Glazier said the sergeant, who was patrolling the area, was flagged down by someone who said a robbery was underway in the parking garage. The sergeant found exactly that when he arrived.

“He identified himself, he ordered the suspect to drop his weapon,” Glazier said. “The suspect refused, so our sergeant fired multiple times striking one of the suspects in the chest and the arm.”
