27. Action [Extra Quality]
From 6 to 20 November, COP27 held high-level and side events, key negotiations, and press conferences, hosting more than 100 Heads of State and Governments, over 35,000 participants and numerous pavilions showcasing climate action around the world and across different sectors.
At COP27, two youth activists Elizabeth Wathuti and Archana Soreng and the winner of the #MyClimateAction contest Ewi Stephanie Lamma demanded urgent action from world leaders amid the worsening climate crisis.
The Action Plan is organized around five goals for collaborative action by the U.S. Government, in partnership with foreign governments, individuals, and organizations aiming to strengthen healthcare, public health, veterinary medicine, agriculture, food safety, and research and manufacturing. Aggressive action will move the nation towards major reductions in the incidence of urgent and serious drug-resistant threats.
The United States and the world face a profound climate crisis. We have a narrow moment to pursue action at home and abroad in order to avoid the most catastrophic impacts of that crisis and to seize the opportunity that tackling climate change presents. Domestic action must go hand in hand with United States international leadership, aimed at significantly enhancing global action. Together, we must listen to science and meet the moment.
(b) Mission and Work. The Task Force shall facilitate the organization and deployment of a Government-wide approach to combat the climate crisis. This Task Force shall facilitate planning and implementation of key Federal actions to reduce climate pollution; increase resilience to the impacts of climate change; protect public health; conserve our lands, waters, oceans, and biodiversity; deliver environmental justice; and spur well-paying union jobs and economic growth. As necessary and appropriate, members of the Task Force will engage on these matters with State, local, Tribal, and territorial governments; workers and communities; and leaders across the various sectors of our economy.
(c) Prioritizing Actions. To the extent permitted by law, Task Force members shall prioritize action on climate change in their policy-making and budget processes, in their contracting and procurement, and in their engagement with State, local, Tribal, and territorial governments; workers and communities; and leaders across all the sectors of our economy.
(c) After submitting an initial action plan, the head of each agency shall submit to the Task Force and Federal Chief Sustainability Officer progress reports annually on the status of implementation efforts. Agencies shall make progress reports public and post them on the agency website, to the extent consistent with applicable law. The heads of agencies shall assign their respective agency Chief Sustainability Officer the authority to perform duties relating to implementation of this order within the agency, to the extent consistent with applicable law.
(ii) As part of this effort, within 60 days of the date of this order, the Interagency Working Group shall submit a report to the President describing all mechanisms, consistent with applicable law, to prioritize grantmaking, Federal loan programs, technical assistance, financing, procurement, or other existing programs to support and revitalize the economies of coal and power plant communities, and providing recommendations for action consistent with the goals of the Interagency Working Group.
Global temperatures have already risen to 1.1C (compared to 1850s levels) and are rapidly heading towards 1.5C, according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). As the window for action is closing, we are getting dangerously close to temperature levels, causing extreme weather events that will put everyone and everything on this planet at life-threatening risk. Communities on the frontlines are experiencing climate devastation on an unprecedent scale. Support for victims of climate damages must be a key outcome from this COP27 in Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt.
This joint side event will showcase concrete actions, projects and programmes, HEPA partners are implementing on the ground to accelerate energy access in health-care facilities including the deployment of cold chains and improving clean household\r\n energy within the most vulnerable communities.
A variety of HEPA partners working on health and energy issues have committed to accelerate action in these areas and will share practical experience in various countries and regions. Furthermore, speakers will highlight examples on how to tackle\r\n issues linked to health-care facilities and household energy and show how governments, Ministries, other decision makers and stakeholders can be supported sustainably and successfully.

In 2015, States adopted the Paris Agreement, pledging to respect human rights in all climate actions. However, as the parties meet in Sharm el Sheikh for COP27, little progress has been made in the area of human rights, or climate actions.
Climate change is negatively impacting the full and effective enjoyment of the human rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other international human rights instruments. Climate change is having a major impact on a wide range of human rights today, affecting mostly marginalised groups, and could have a cataclysmic impact in the future, unless ambitious actions are undertaken immediately.
The Lemieux Library and McGoldrick Learning Commons Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Action Plan presents goals aimed at advancing equity, diversity, inclusion, and anti-racism at the Lemieux Library. For the academic years 2021-22 and 2022-23, the Lemieux Library will focus many of the action items around racial equity in support of Seattle University Reigniting Our Strategic Directions 2022-2027. This is an initial, and therefore dynamic document. We will annotate the Plan with short-and long-term actions, as well as diversity, equity, and inclusion metrics to track progress towards these goals during the academic year ahead. New versions will be released as we hold meetings, forums, and create change.

The organizers hope that the ceremony of the ten principles and the climate repentance ceremony, inspired by the biblical event thousands of years ago, will inspire the people to act modestly and carry out actions for climate justice.
Rabbi Yonatan Neril, founder and CEO of the Interfaith Center for Sustainable Development noted that "we must move from greed, short-term thinking and individualistic behavior to spiritual satisfaction, long-term thinking and altruism. By doing this we will address the root causes instead of just the symptoms of the problem."
The action of 27 June 1798 was a minor naval engagement between British and French frigates in the Strait of Sicily in the Mediterranean Sea. The engagement formed part of a wider campaign, in which a major French convoy sailed from Toulon to Alexandria at the start of the Napoleonic campaign in Egypt. The French frigate Sensible had been detached from the convoy after the capture of Malta, under orders to carry wounded soldiers and looted treasure back to France while the main body continued to Egypt. The British frigate HMS Seahorse was one of a number of vessels detached from the main British Mediterranean Fleet in the Tagus River, sent to augment the fleet under Sir Horatio Nelson that was actively hunting the French convoy.
Lookouts on Seahorse spotted Sensible at 16:00 on 26 June and Captain Edward Foote immediately gave chase, the French frigate fleeing southwards. For 12 hours the pursuit continued until Foote was able to catch and defeat his opponent, inflicting heavy casualties on the weaker and overladen French frigate. Among the prisoners captured was General Louis Baraguey d'Hilliers who had been wounded in the storming of Malta, and among the treasure was an ornate seventeenth century cannon once owned by Louis XIV. The captured Sensible was initially fitted out as an active warship, but on arrival in Britain in 1799 the ship was downgraded to a transport. The action provided the British with the first conclusive evidence of the French intention to invade Egypt, but despite an extensive search for Nelson's fleet Foote was unable to relay the location of the French to his admiral before the Battle of the Nile on 1 August. 041b061a72
