Did you miss the news from the start of the morning? We have concocted a recap to help you see more clearly.

While the government promises that the Climate and Resilience Bill, which will be examined in Parliament on March 8, will introduce “major ruptures in French society”, the critics are not dry on the text. And this time the “can do better” does not come from just anyone: High Climate Council (HCC). The independent body, created in May 2019 at the request of Emmanuel Macron, publishes this Tuesday an opinion on the ambition displayed by this last major law for the environment of the five-year term. And according to him, from domestic flights to the energy renovation of buildings, many measures of the Climate Bill are wrong by their “reduced scope”. The HCC therefore hopes that Parliament will be able to “rectify the situation”.

The bar is sadly symbolic, forcing even the US President to address the Nation from the White House. The results of the epidemic of Covid-19 in the United States, which topped 500,000 deaths on Monday, is “heartbreaking,” Joe Biden said in a moving speech. He also observed a minute’s silence in the presence of his wife Jill Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris and her husband Doug Emhoff. For the tenant of the White House to reflect is important because it is above all necessary “to resist the temptation to see each life as a statistic”

These are seven minutes of wonder for humanity. On Monday, NASA unveiled a historic video the landing of its Perseverance rover on Mars. This is the first time that the descent to the red planet has been filmed. In the end, everything worked except the microphone, with a transmission problem that does not detract from the feat. Especially Perseverance has, for the first time, recorded the sound of Martian winds. Close your eyes, turn up the volume and listen: you are on Mars.
