Thunberg, 16, has become the face of young peoples’ demands for climate action and made a point of making the journey back from September’s New York climate summit by sea rather than fuel-guzzling plane.

Barnier: Brexit is “school of patience”

EU’s chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier says that talks on a free trade deal with the United Kingdom once the country has left the bloc might be as tough as the Brexit talks over the past years. Barnier told the Web Summit in Lisbon that already by next summer it will be clear if the transition period to agree on future relations will have to be extended beyond the end of next year.

Portugal’s private firefighters watch over volatile forests | AFP

In most countries protecting forests from fires is exclusively carried out by the state but in Portugal the country’s two biggest pulp and paper firms, Navigator and Altri, set up their own firefighting force in 2002, which sometimes help civil protection units to fight wildfires outside their own private forests. The pulp and paper sector is largest forest owner in Portugal. It controls 150,000 hectares of eucalyptus trees such as those which surround the central town of Constancia and its pulp factory, locoated on the banks of the river Tagus around 100 kilometres (60 miles) northeast of Lisbon.

Skeletons and scares at Portugal’s Dino Park

The town of Lourinha, an hour’s drive north of Lisbon, has been dinosaur-mad ever since the remains of a dozen of the creatures were discovered in the late 19th century. Now Dino Park, a new theme park in one of the most fossil-rich regions in Europe, offers children and adults the chance to see the great reptiles in what was once their natural habitat.

Reefer Madness on the Road | Cannabis and Driving | Cannabis News Network

As (medical) cannabis legalization continues to roll out across the planet, governments have a hard time adapting to the idea of driving under the influence (DUI). And while driving under the influence should never be promoted, most governments sadly lack a basic understanding of how cannabis works. Patients are fined and losing their license, while recreational users can get positively tested days after using cannabis. Reefer Madness on the road.

Whereas governments tend to treat a cannabis DUI like an alcohol DUI, they should be treated separately for various reasons.

First and foremost should be looked whether cannabis really impairs driving. Of course, driving on cannabis after your first time consuming is never a good idea. But studies and experiments have shown cannabis use does not impair driving like alcohol does.

Physically, cannabis has been known to leave trails in your blood up to 30 days after consuming. However, you’re not going to feel high 20 days after consumption and neither will it impair your driving. As such, blood tests say very little about how impaired a driver really is.

Then, there’s the troubling case of patients whom can’t drive without cannabis. Or at least, have to consume cannabis to ensure a quality of life. Whether they are actually high while being tested, is irrelevant if they have consumed in the morning to alleviate nuisances.

Arguably the best source of cannabis and driving, the extensive study done by the Canadian Drug Policy Coalition (CDPC).

For this special on cannabis and driving, Cannabis News Network attended the the third international symposium on drug-impaired driving in Lisbon and got to speak with various experts, including: Doug Beirness (Canada, Senior Research & Policy Analyst and Advisor, Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction), Jan Ramaekers (The Netherlands, Professor of Psychopharmacology and Behavioral Toxicology, Maastricht University), Brendan Hughes (EU, EMCDDA, specialist narcotics law) and Darrin Grondel (USA, Governors Highway Safety Association GHSA).

The CIA Officer Left Behind by Hillary Clinton

Sabrina De Sousa, a former CIA counterterrorism officer, is facing imminent extradition to Italy for her role in the unlawful rendition of a suspected terrorist, an operation she has long denied any involvement with.

In 2003, a radical Egyptian cleric named Abu Omar was kidnapped off the streets of Milan in broad daylight, by CIA officers assisted by Italian intelligence. Omar was then flown to Egypt, where he says he was tortured. In 2009, Sabrina De Sousa and two dozen other American officials were convicted in absentia by an Italian court for their role in the rendition.

Now facing a four-year prison term in Italy, De Sousa blames Hillary Clinton for failing to assist her back in 2012, when Clinton was serving as Secretary of State. De Sousa sent Clinton a plea for help, but she never received a reply. De Sousa has long argued that she had nothing to do with the rendition, and has appealed her extradition. But this month, a Portuguese court rejected her final legal appeal.

If De Sousa is jailed, she will be the first CIA officer ever imprisoned in connection with the Bush administration’s notorious “extraordinary rendition” program. VICE News traveled to Lisbon, Portugal to meet with De Sousa.

On The Line: Jason Leopold and Kaj Larsen on Intelligence Agencies and The War on Terror

Follow us on Twitter (https://twitter.com/vicenews) where we’ll announce the next topic for On The Line.

VICE News journalists Kaj Larsen (https://twitter.com/KajLarsen) and Jason Leopold (https://twitter.com/jasonleopold) join On The Line to the role of intelligence agencies in the clandestine war on terror, and their new piece “The Italian Job,” (http://bit.ly/1Pttu3c).

In “The Italian Job,” VICE News met up with De Sousa in Lisbon, one of nearly two-dozen CIA officers who was prosecuted, convicted, and sentenced by Italian courts in absentia in 2009 for the role they allegedly played in the rendition of a radical cleric named Abu Omar. It was the first and only successful criminal prosecution that has ever taken place related to the CIA’s rendition program, which involved more than 100 suspected terrorists and the assistance of dozens of European countries.

In “The Italian Job,” VICE News met up with De Sousa in Lisbon, Portugal–and other key figures connected to the case–for an exclusive interview about the steps she’s now taking in an effort to hold the CIA accountable for one of the most notorious counterterrorism operations in the history of the agency.

How the CIA Renditioned a Radical Cleric (Excerpt from ‘The Italian Job’)

Watch Full Length – http://bit.ly/1Pttu3c

Sabrina De Sousa is one of nearly two-dozen CIA officers who was prosecuted, convicted, and sentenced by Italian courts in absentia in 2009 for the role she allegedly played in the rendition of a radical cleric named Abu Omar. It was the first and only criminal prosecution that has ever taken place related to the CIA’s rendition program, which involved more than 100 suspected terrorists and the assistance of dozens of European countries.

But De Sousa, a dual US and Portuguese citizen, said she had nothing to do with the cleric’s abduction and has been wrongly accused. For the past decade, she has been on a global quest to clear her name. VICE News met up with De Sousa in Lisbon, Portugal — and other key figures connected to the case — for an exclusive interview about the steps she’s now taking in an effort to hold the CIA accountable for one of the most notorious counterterrorism operations in the history of the agency.

In this excerpt, De Sousa explains why she’s continued to fight this battle to clear her name for almost a decade, and tells VICE News why she thinks the charges against her are groundless.
