Protesters participate in a demonstration calling for a "No" vote in the forthcoming referendum on bailout conditions set by the country's creditors, in front of the Greek parliament in Athens on June 29, 2015On the eve of an expected debt default that could set Greece on the path to a euro exit, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras sought to calm nerves by leaving the door open to talks, saying the July 5 plebiscite on creditors' latest cash-for-reform plans would leave the country "better armed" in the fight for a debt deal. Earlier on Monday, an emotional EU chief Jean-Claude Juncker bitterly criticised Tsipras, saying he felt "betrayed" by the leftist Syriza government's behaviour and adding it was time to tell voters "the truth". Other EU leaders including Germany's Angela Merkel France's Francois Hollande and Italy's Matteo Renzi put up a united front, stressing that the bailout referendum was effectively a vote on Greece's place in the euro.

A woman strolls through Kensington Gardens as smog surrounds Kensington Palace in central LondonBy Nina Chestney LONDON (Reuters) - The British government needs to extend policies and funding to reduce carbon emissions into the next decade to avoid increasing the cost and impact of global warming, Britain's climate change adviser said on Tuesday. The government has a legally binding target to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80 percent from 1990 levels by 2050 to limit the effects of climate change and the committee's role is to advise it on the best way of doing so. Britain's emissions are currently 36 percent below 1990 levels.
