First things first: big climate changes are inevitable and irreversible, says IPCC in severest warning yet |

Good Morning.

Widespread devastation and extreme weather are likely to become inevitable in the next two decades thanks to human behavior that causes rising temperatures, the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) warned.

A senior aide to the New York governor, Andrew Cuomo, who has often defended him in the past, resigned Sunday following a report by a state attorney general that the governor had sexually harassed 11 women.

Melissa DeRosa, the governor’s secretary, was linked in the report to efforts to cover up the governor’s actions and retaliate against one of his accusers. The report described DeRosa as a central figure in Cuomo’s office’s retaliation against one of the women, Lindsey Boylan, after she became the first person to speak publicly.

Cuomo has denied wrongdoing and said he “never touched anyone inappropriately or made inappropriate sexual advances.”

  • Brittany commisso, a former aide and one of 11 women Cuomo is accused of sexually harassing, has said the governor “must be held accountable” and that what he did to her was “a crime.”.

  • Cuomo’s attorney has described Commisso’s account as fabricated., claiming that the emails and other documentary evidence undermine his story. “There has not been an open-minded fact search … the investigators acted as prosecutors, judges and jurors,” Glavin said.

Who doesn’t love a hug?
