Section break ---- C*News Intro I'm ... w/ the top of the hour news ..... ---- E*EZ NEWS SEPTEMBER 24, 2019 ---- E*Tai-Ex opening The Tai-Ex opened down 1-point this morning from yesterday's close, at 10,917 on turnover of 1.2-billion N-T. The market was a bit lower Monday. It was in consolidation mode for most of the session. Investors were still worried about trade friction (爭執,衝突) between the U-S and China. All large-cap stocks struggled, but some small- and mid-cap tech stocks related to 5G technology development got a boost, lending (提供) some support to the broader market. ---- E*US and Australia Offices Speak-Up up for Taiwan The United States and Australia say they support Taiwan's participation in international affairs (事務). The support comes ahead of the general debate of the annual United Nations General Assembly. The Australian Office in Taipei posted on a message on its Facebook saying Canberra acknowledges Taiwan's continuing progress on the Sustainable Development Goals and universal health coverage. The American Institute in Taiwan says Washington supports Taipei's meaningful (富有意義的) participation in international organizations and that Taiwan is a reliable partner and a force for good in the world. ---- E*EPA Touts progress on Greenhouse Gas Reduction The Environmental Protection Administration is talking about the government working to cut down greenhouse gas emissions. According to the administration, Taiwan has outperformed (勝出、超越) many other major Asian economies in putting out less carbon dioxide emissions since it started the Greenhouse Gas Reduction and Management Act in 2005. The act set five-year carbon reduction targets in the hope of reducing Taiwan's greenhouse gas emissions to 50-per cent of 2005 per year levels by 2050. The E-P-A says from 1990 to 2005, Taiwan's greenhouse gas emissions increased 110-per cent mostly because of more energy being used due to economic growth. But they increased by only 0.92-per cent between 2005 and 2016. ---- E*UN Touts Climate Progress In international news.... U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres says ``the tide is turning'' as a climate change summit just concluded. Guterres listed 77 countries will work for carbon neutrality by 2050, though those countries combined produce (產生) far less than half the world's carbon dioxide emissions. Seventy nations also pledged to do more to fight climate change, 100 business leaders promised to join the green economy and one-third of the global banking sector signed up to green goals. Guterres also repeated his call for no new coal plants to be built after next year, and says there is still a "long way to go". Meanwhile.... Sixteen young activists including Sweden's Greta Thunberg have filed a formal U.N. complaint (訴狀) about governments' lack of action on climate. In Monday's complaint, filed with the U.N. group that protects children's rights, the youths from a dozen countries contend their rights are being violated by severe weather, lack of food and water and an increase in refugees. ---- E*Trump Denies Tying Ukraine Aid to Biden Investigation Controversy continues swirling (紛飛) around a phone call US President Donald Trump had with Ukraine's new leader in July. AP Washington correspondent Sagar Meghani reports. < [CLIP] Slug: > ---- C*News Outro That was the I-C-R-T news Check in again tomorrow for our simplified version of the news, uploaded every day in the afternoon.
