When U.N. Envoy Nikki Haley Talks, Does President Trump Listen?

A crucial test of her influence on him will come this week during Mr. Trump’s maiden visit to the United Nations, the organization he has repeatedly pilloried and whose very reason for being — international cooperation — he has dismissed with his promise of “only America first.”Ms. Haley predicted with confidence at a White House news conference on Friday that Mr. Trump would make “quite an impact” at the world body. What impact she has had on his approach to the world is still unknown.On Monday, Mr. Trump, who proposed a drastic funding cut to the United Nations, is expected to host an event dedicated to a still-vague, American-led effort to overhaul the organization.

Trump Pushes U.N.: ‘We Are Not Seeing the Results’

The tension has gone both ways. Last month, the United Nations human rights chief chastised Mr. Trump for his repeated attacks on the news media, saying that they could incite violence and set a bad example for other countries.At a news conference at the French mission on Monday, Jean-Yves Le Drian, France’s foreign minister, described the context in which Mr. Trump arrived. “There’s a worrying degradation of the international environment,” he said. “Never since the end of the Cold War have dissensions, tensions, the level of conflict been so high in a world that is more interdependent than ever.”“And what is worse is despite globalization, cooperation has become less easy with increasing questioning of the roles of the multilateral game and with a temptation of withdrawal out of fear or selfishness,” Mr. Le Drian added.No mention was made during Mr. Trump’s opening appearance on Monday of the global crises that the United Nations has rung alarm bells about: attacks on the Rohingya minority in Myanmar, climate change, the nuclear threat in North Korea, and a record 65 million people displaced from their homes.PhotoA “family photo” during the United Nations meeting on Monday.Credit Doug Mills/The New York TimesMr. Trump’s main message to the visiting heads of state and government will come on Tuesday when he addresses the opening session of the United Nations General Assembly.

News Analysis: The Big Question as the U.N. Gathers: What to Make of Trump?

One of Mr. Trump’s primary tasks will be to define how his America First approach — which has led him to pull out of international agreements on free trade and climate change — fits into the world-first mission of the United Nations.His challenge is “to describe the Trump Doctrine on U.S. global leadership and engagement,” said Zalmay Khalilzad, ambassador to the United Nations under President George W. Bush. “The perception in many parts of the world, including the U.N., is that President Trump is unilateralist and isolationist. Trump has the opportunity to present and describe his vision and strategy. The world will be all ears.”Mr. Trump arrives in New York at a time of crackling tension over North Korea’s provocative actions and deep uncertainty about what he will do with President Barack Obama’s nuclear agreement with Iran.

Your Future Food Will Be Grown With Waste Water

By Serena Caucci, United Nations University and Kristin Meyer, United Nations University In an increasingly water-scarce world, there is no doubt that recycling water we’ve already used has to become normal. Part of that will inevitably mean using waste water to help grow the food we need. But will we ever feel comfortable using waste water for food production? The reality is that this is already happening, but more needs to be done to keep communities safe from the dangers of using untreated waste water. The use of waste water for food production is mainly a question of managing water shortage and socioeconomic costs. Exponential population growth and climate change have seriously compromised water availability in many regions, from the Middle East to Africa, Southeast Asia and Latin America. Local communities urgently need to find solutions to the problem of increasing water scarcity. If used properly, waste water can provide important nutrients for plant growth and act as a replacement for mineral fertilizers. But it should be used for agricultural purposes only after being treated. […]

The Bundy bros are back at it.

The Republican candidate on Monday promoted his plan to purportedly save the government $100 billion over eight years. It involves cutting all federal spending on climate change programs, both domestic and international.

“We’re going to put America first,” Trump said at a Michigan rally. “That includes canceling billions in climate change spending for the United Nations, a number Hillary wants to increase, and instead use that money to provide for American infrastructure including clean water, clean air, and safety.”

As Bloomberg BNA reports, Trump didn’t give a precise tally for how he got to $100 billion:

[The] campaign press office said that the figure combined an estimate of what the Obama administration had spent on climate-related programs, the amount of U.S. contributions to an international climate fund that Trump would cancel, and a calculation of what Trump believes would be savings to the economy if Obama’s and Clinton’s climate policies were reversed.

That math, however, doesn’t work out: According to a 2014 report from the White House’s Council of Economic Advisers, a global temperature increase of just 3 degrees C would cost the United States 1 percent of GDP, or $150 billion a year, by damaging public health and infrastructure and battling sea-level rise, stronger storms, declining crop yields, and increased drought and wildfires.
