The UK has approved a major new oil and gas project in the North Sea, despite opposition from environmentalists. The Rosebank field, located northwest of the Shetland Islands, is estimated to have around 300 million barrels of oil. The decision to go ahead with the project comes after Prime Minister Rishi Sunak weakened the government’s net zero emissions target for 2050, which critics argue could undermine global climate ambitions. Meanwhile, TD Bank has launched an online tool called the TD Accessibility Adapter to help people who struggle with online environments. The tool, available for free to the general public, is a browser plug-in that allows users to personalize their browsing experience based on their needs, with features such as adjustable font size and dyslexia-friendly fonts. In other news, US President Joe Biden showed support for the United Auto Workers’ demand for a wage increase by joining a picket line at a General Motors plant in Michigan. The strike, now in its 12th day, is centered on benefits, representation, and clean energy. Biden’s visit to the picket line was seen as a significant show of solidarity with organized labor.
