sg/wMXS STRASBOURG, FRANCE (AFP) - The president of the European Parliament, Mr David Sassoli, died early Tuesday (Jan 11) in hospital in Italy, his spokesman said on Twitter. The 65-year-old Italian had been seriously ill in hospital for more than two weeks due to a dysfunction of his immune system. The EU's Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) said in a report on Monday (Jan 10) that the last seven years were the world's warmest "by a clear margin" in records dating back to 1850 and the average global temperature in 2021 was 1. "David Sassoli passed away at 1. However, there has been friction about how this applies in practice - especially for goods intended to remain within Northern Ireland - as well as the arbitration role of the EU's European Court of Justice.15 am on 11 January at the CRO in Aviano, Italy, where he was hospitalised," his spokesman Roberto Cuillo tweeted.2C above 1850-1900 levels."The date and place of the funeral will be communicated in the next few hours. The annual average temperature was 1.

" The former television newsreader had been in hospital since Dec 26 due to"a serious complication due to a dysfunction of the immune system," Mr Cuillo had said on Monday, announcing the cancellation of Mr Sassoli’s official activities. Countries committed under the 2015 Paris Agreement to try to limit global temperature rise to 1." The European Union's ambassador to the United Kingdom, Joao Vale de Almeida, said on Sunday (Jan 9) the bloc was not"too impressed" with the British stance on Article 16, which allows either side to unilaterally decide to stop implementing parts of the protocol governing trade with Northern Ireland if there are substantial practical problems or trade diversion. Mr Sassoli was previously admitted with pneumonia for several weeks last September. The European Parliament sits for a five-year term between elections, but the president of the body serves for half that time. That would require emissions to roughly halve by 2030, but so far they have charged higher. Mr Sassoli had already indicated that he would not seek re-election." Truss replaced David Frost as Britain's main Brexit negotiator in December, who often raised the prospect of invoking Article 16 if talks stalled. He was born on May 30, 1956, in Florence, Italy. Climate change exacerbated many of the extreme weather events sweeping the world in 2021, from floods in Europe, China and South Sudan, to wildfires in Siberia and the United States. "2021 was yet another year of extreme temperatures with the hottest summer in Europe, heatwaves in the Mediterranean, not to mention the unprecedented high temperatures in North America," said C3S Director Carlo Buontempo.

After a three-decade career as an Italian journalist, starting out in newspapers then moving to television and becoming a nationally known anchor, Mr Sassoli became a member of the European Parliament in 2009, and speaker in 2019. He was a member of the centre-left Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats, the second-biggest grouping in the Parliament after the centre-right European People’s Party. Global levels of CO2 and methane, the main greenhouse gases, continued to climb, and both hit record highs in 2021. Although his role was that of speaker, he had the title of president of the European legislature. His arrival in the chamber was traditionally announced in Italian as"Il Presidente".3 parts per million in 2021, up by around 2.
