Indonesian province shuts schools due to forest fire haze

Sep 21, 2019

JAKARTA, Indonesia — Authorities shut most schools in parts of Indonesia's Sumatra island to protect children from a thick, noxious haze as deliberately set fires burned through peatland forests, officials said Wednesday. Indonesia's Disaster Mitigation Agency said more than 3,600 fires have been detected on Sumatra and Borneo islands by weather satellites, leading to very poor air quality in six provinces with a combined population of more than 23 million. Nearly every year, Indonesian forest fires spread health-damaging haze across the country and into neighboring Malaysia and Singapore. Authorities have deployed more than 9,000 people to fight the fires, which...

Indonesia to move capital from sinking Jakarta to Borneo

Sep 21, 2019

JAKARTA, Indonesia — Indonesia's president says the country's capital will move from overcrowded, sinking and polluted Jakarta to a site in sparsely populated East Kalimantan province on Borneo island, known for rainforests and orangutans. President Joko Widodo said Monday intense studies over the past three years had resulted in the choice of the location on the eastern side of Borneo island. The new capital city, which has not yet been named, will be in the middle of the vast archipelago nation and already has relatively complete infrastructure because it is near the cities of Balikpapan and Samarinda, Widodo said. He...

China lets currency sink to 11-year low after Trump threats

Sep 21, 2019

BEIJING — China allowed its yuan to sink to an 11-year low Monday after President Donald Trump sent jittery financial markets tumbling by announcing new tariff hikes and threatening to block American companies from doing business with this country. The escalation in the fight over trade and technology prompted warnings that chances for a settlement were disappearing. The yuan declined to 7.1468 to the dollar, a relatively modest change from Friday's low point of 7.0927 but its weakest rate since January 2008. The yuan has lost 6.5% from this year's high on Feb. 28. Chinese leaders have promised to avoid...

Sep 21, 2019

BEKASI, Indonesia — An Indonesian man is walking more than 700 kilometers (430 miles) backward from his village in eastern Java to the country's capital to raise awareness about deforestation. Medi Bastoni began his arduous expedition on July 18 from his home on the slope of Mount Wilis, a dormant volcano in East Java province that has been affected by deforestation. The 43-year-old is expected to arrive in the capital, Jakarta, on Friday. He hopes to meet President Joko Widodo, and ask him to re-plant trees on Mount Wilis and elsewhere. "I'm doing this to raise people's awareness of deforestation,"...

China threatens retaliation if US tariff hikes go ahead

Sep 21, 2019

BEIJING — China on Thursday threatened retaliation if Washington steps up their war over trade and technology by going ahead with planned Sept. 1 tariff hikes on additional Chinese imports. Beijing will take unspecified "necessary countermeasures," the Cabinet said in a one-sentence statement. It gave no details or any indication plans for trade talks in Washington in September might be affected. The mounting tension has unnerved financial markets that worry the global economy will tip into recession. President Donald Trump says he plans to impose 10% duties on an additional $300 billion of Chinese imports, extending penalties to almost everything...
