The defense in the murder trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin has now rested his case, Chauvin facing both second degree murder and manslaughter charges in connection with the death of George Floyd. NPR’s Adrian Florido says Chauvin did not take the stand, the defense rested after 2 days of testimony compared to 2 weeks on the part of the prosecution.

Prosecutors called 38 witnesses to the stand because they have to prove their case against Derek Chauvin beyond a reasonable doubt so they spent a lot of time laying out the very meticulous case. Defense attorney Eric Nelson only has to raise a reasonable doubt to prevent a conviction and he apparently thought he could do that with the 7 witnesses that he called over 2 days.

NPR’s Adrian Florido, video showing Chauvin kneeling on the black man’s neck for more than 9 minutes, closing arguments in the case are scheduled for Monday.

The city of Chicago has released video of the fatal police shooting of a 13 year-old boy that appears to show him raising his hands before he was killed, from member station WBEZ in Chicago, Claudia Morell has more.

The city agency that handles police misconduct cases posted body cam footage, 911 calls and other security videos that captured the killing of 13 year-old Adam Toledo, the video appears to show Toledo was armed and running from police down a dark residential alley but then complying with police orders to stop and raising his hands before being shot once in the chest. Before the release, Mayor Lori Lightfoot pushed back tears as she urged for calm.

“No parent should have a video broadcast widely of their child’s last moments.”

The shooting sparked vigils and protest across Chicago, for NPR news, I’m Claudia Morell in Chicago.

President Biden is hoping for republican support for his 2.3 trillion dollar infrastructure plan. But a New NPR/PBS News Hour/Marist Poll indicates there’s little GOP support at the moment, more from NPR’s Domenico Montanaro.   

A majority respondent in the survey supports Biden’s infrastructure plan, that includes 9 in 10 democrats and half of independents, but republicans overwhelmingly do not. They also are largely against how Biden has proposed paying for it, that makes hopes for a bipartisan plan remote. All congressional republicans also oppose Biden’s covid relief bill, despite its broad popularity, including with independents. Democrats passed that bill along party lines anyway, banking on swing voters carrying more about big ticket legislation they largely support than bipartisanship. That theory will be put to the test in next year’s midterm elections when control of congress is at stake, Domenico Montanaro NPR news Washington.

The European energy giant Shell is asking share holders if they approve a plan to transition from oil and gas to renewable energy. It’s an unusual step as NPR’s Camila Domonoske explains it’s an unusual twist on share holders activism.

For years now, oil and gas companies have been targeted by share holder proposals calling for them to disclose their contribution to global warming and take steps to reduce it. Those votes were initiated by investors, often over company resistance, but Shell says this is the first time an energy company has come to its investors to ask for a vote of approval on the company’s plan to cut emissions. The vote is non-binding, it would show what the investors think of the plan, not directly determine what Shell dose. Shell says it will decrease oil output and invest more in renewables, and it aims to become a net-zero emission company by 2050, share holders will vote next month, Camila Domonoske NPR news.

Google earth is adding a new video feature to its app that will draw upon nearly 4 decade’s worth of satellite images, show how climate change has affected glaciers, beaches forests and other areas around the world. 2 long views by the company today being boasted the biggest update to the app in some 5 years, google says it undertook the complicated project in partnership with several US and European government agencies, to help a mass audience to better understand the effects of climate change and what that has meant over time.

Crude oil futures prices continued to edge higher amid some signs of global demand will begin picking up as the economy gain steam, oil rose 31cents a barrel today, ending the session at 63.46 a barrel in New York.
