This 14-Year-Old Climate Activist Is Giving Up School to Save the World

Alexandria Villaseñor is standing in front of the U.S. Capitol and posting Instagram stories like any other teenager.

“Is there any good music that goes with climate action?” the 14-year-old asks a group of activists.

A couple of suggestions later, a song that’s more than twice her age blasts from her phone speakers on abbreviated loop: “It’s the end of the world as we know it… It’s the end of the world as we know it…”

And Alexandria doesn’t feel fine. Over the next few hours, she’ll have meetings with both of New York’s senators to ask them to do what they can to ensure her generation doesn’t experience the actual end of the world because of climate change.

“I notice a lot of politicians are looking at what is politically possible,” she told VICE News in an interview. “But I did think with some politicians I talk to that we’re on the same page on how urgent this is.”

Around the globe, young people like Alexandria see the climate crisis as the existential threat to their generation. They’ve skipped school in more than 130 countries to demand policy changes, following the lead of Greta Thunberg, the 16-year-old from Sweden who is currently sailing across the Atlantic Ocean to attend the United Nations climate talks in September.

As one of the movement’s American organizers, Alexandria has also become a prominent young critic of world leaders’ inaction. Even though nearly 200 countries pledged in the Paris Agreement to keep global temperatures from hitting catastrophic levels, laws and norms aren’t changing quickly enough, and global greenhouse gas emissions are still going up.

When her classmates go back to middle school this fall, Alexandria won’t be joining them. Instead, she’ll take on eighth grade via independent study so that she can lead her global youth network, Earth Uprising, and continue her activism at full blast.

What Happens Next For Julian Assange (HBO)

Julian Assange’s lawyers are digging in for a furious, last-ditch effort to block his extradition to the U.S., following his dramatic arrest Thursday morning. The WikiLeaks founder was dragged out of the Ecuadorian embassy, where he had been living since 2012.

Assange is now facing up to five years in American prison for allegedly conspiring to hack into a classified Pentagon computer system in 2010. A 2018 indictment, unsealed by the Department of Justice on Thursday, charges him with a single count of conspiracy to commit computer intrusion and alleges that he tried to help former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning gain access to the government computer system in March 2010.

Given Assange’s contentious history with Washington, the initial indictment may be an attempt to bring Assange to the U.S. before targeting him with additional charges, former federal prosecutors told VICE News. His longstanding confrontation with the U.S. government now appears destined to play out in courtrooms in London and Alexandria, Virginia.

“Once the Justice Department gets him over here, they have a lot more leverage over Mr. Assange — and the tables are turned,” said Renato Mariotti, a former U.S. prosecutor based in Chicago. “You don’t need to be a legal analyst to see why the Justice Department would probably like to charge him with all sorts of things.”

DARPA Artificial Intelligence Colloquium Opening Video

Throughout DARPA’s history, artificial intelligence (AI) has been an important area of groundbreaking research and development (R&D). In the 1960s, DARPA researchers completed some of the foundational work in the field, leading to the creation of expert systems, or the first wave of AI technologies. Since then, DARPA has funded developments in the second wave of AI – machine learning – which has significantly impacted defense and commercial capabilities in areas such as speech understanding, self-driving cars, and image recognition. Today, DARPA continues to fund AI innovation, making multiple investments in research that aim to shape a future in which AI systems shift from tools to trusted, collaborative partners in problem solving.

First announced in September, the DARPA AI Next campaign is a multi-year, upwards of $2 billion investment in new and existing programs to create the third wave of AI technologies. To increase awareness of DARPA’s expansive AI R&D efforts, the agency hosted an Artificial Intelligence Colloquium (AIC) March 6-7, 2019 in Alexandria, Virginia. This event brought together the DoD research community and defense stakeholders to learn more about DARPA’s current and emerging AI programs, as well as discover how the myriad technologies in development could apply to their diverse missions.

This brief opening video highlights DARPA’s history in AI and its outlook for the future.

Wall Street Weighs In On AOC’s Proposed 70% Marginal Tax Hike | Davos 2019

One of the hottest topics at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland has been Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s proposed 70% marginal tax rate on all income above $10 million. There have been many headlines out of Davos with business leaders calling the proposed tax disastrous, scary, and saying it will have a huge impact on the economy. We sat down with three financial heavyweights to find out what they think everyone is missing about this discussion. The general consensus was that while such a hefty tax would hurt the economy, it simply doesn’t effect enough people to be a major issue.

Moelis & Co. founder and CEO Ken Moelis says there isn’t a problem with a high tax on income above $10 million dollars because there isn’t that much income to tax above that level. Marginal tax rates need to start around $250,000 in order to have an impact.  And a 70% tax rate at that level “would crush the economy.”

Guggenheim Partners global CIO Scott Minerd agrees that the amount brought in by a 70% tax above the $10 million income level won’t make enough of a difference even if you assume people will pay it. But Minerd says historically when we have had high marginal tax rates wealthy people have sheltered their income.

Bob Prince, the co-CIO of Bridgewater — the largest hedge fund in the world — says this tax won’t be good because it won’t solve many problems.

Obama Is Back. Here’s What He’s Saying. (HBO)

Democrats have spent the past year trying to figure out who they can rally around. Is it Bernie? Is it Nancy Pelosi? Is it Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?

That argument has been a heated one — until now.

This weekend, President Obama stepped back onto the stage, giving Democrats of all stripes some change they can believe in.

Obama will be dropping in on campaigns across the country, rallying the party faithful and making the case to all voters that politics today are not normal. He thinks his marked differences with the current president could be the contrast that Democrats need to make their midterm case.

VICE followed him to Orange County, CA.
