Thierry Henry, Jamie Redknapp and Jamie Carragher on Arsene Wenger and England

Arsene Wenger will want to "finish a job" at Arsenal, says Thierry Henry

Thierry Henry is doubtful that Arsene Wenger will become England manager, and believes the Arsenal boss is aiming to "finish a job" at the Emirates.
Henry was talking to Rachel Riley and Jeff Stelling on the Friday Night Football sofa when the discussion turned to the vacant England job and whether Wenger was right man to replace the departed Sam Allardyce.
"I just think that Arsene likes to be out on the field on a daily basis and he has a job to do at Arsenal, we all know what it is - finally winning the league," Henry said. "I don't see it happening in all honesty.

"Who would want that job right now? No disrespect, but it's just a very difficult job.
"I remember myself when I was a player, I was looking at all the stories and everything that was coming up and I was like 'wow, do you really want that job'.
"It's a job that you might want because it's your country - obviously not if you're Arsene Wenger - but why would you want that job if you're safe where you are and you're trying to finish a job at Arsenal."
Fellow pundit Jamie Rednapp agreed with Henry that the England job - occupied for such a short time by Allardyce - is a poisoned chalice.

We’d need to get a Buddhist monk probably to manage the English team. That’s the only chance we’ve got.

"Who would want the job after what's happened of late?" Redknapp said. "I think there's a lot of managers now thinking 'no way do I want to touch that job'.
"We'd need to get a Buddhist monk probably to manage the English team. That's the only chance we've got."
Alan Pardew, one of the managers on show on Friday Night Football as his Crystal Palace side travel to Everton, "has got the ego to handle" the job, added Redknapp.

"I mean that in a nice way," the pundit explained. "He's extremely confident."
The Football Association has appointed consecutive English managers to the national team job following the Fabio Capello era.
However, a dearth of quality candidates could see a foreign coach appointed next, and Jamie Carragher believes that domestic managers aren't doing enough to show that they're worthy of the biggest jobs.

"If we're being totally honest, whenever they've got a big job, it hasn't worked, it's failed," the Sky Sports pundit said.
"So you've had Steve McClaren with the England job, Sam Allardyce - it wasn't football, it was off the pitch - Brendan Rodgers at Liverpool, David Moyes at Manchester United.
"Now, they're not getting as many chances as foreign coaches, but when they get the chance they have to take it. Look at Roy Hodgson."

Provinces with the cheapest cellphone plans and why the rest of us don't get them

When CBC News reported on the black market cellphone industry last week, it sparked outrage from some readers about price discrepancies across Canada.
Because various cellular plan prices are much cheaper in Manitoba and Saskatchewan — close to half the price —some third-party dealers offer a one-time fee to secretly switch people's plans in other provinces to the cheaper Prairie deal.
"Two of the least populated provinces can offer cell services for almost half the cost of more populated provinces. Amazing!" commented an astonished reader on the story.
"It's so obvious we are getting ripped off," stated another reader.
So CBC News decided to explore price plan differences across Canada, why they vary, and what the future holds.
According to the latest report commissioned by the CRTC — the country's telecom regulator — Canadians still pay some of the highest rates for wireless service in the industrialized world.
But in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Quebec, customers can often score cheaper deals compared to the rest of the country.

Want a cheaper deal? Move

CBC News scoped out discount brands Koodo, Fido, and Virgin, owned by Telus, Rogers, and Bell respectively to compare prices.
According to their websites, all charge $48 a month in Saskatchewan and Manitoba for similar plans offering unlimited Canada-wide calling, texting and 5 GB of data.

In most other Canadians provinces, the price for the same deal for all three brands is almost double — between $90 and $95 a month.
The exception is Quebec where customers can get the same plan with one extra GB of data for a cheaper $58 to $60 a month.
The CRTC-commissioned report also clearly shows regional price differences. It looked at six of Canada's major cities and divided up wireless plans into categories based on included features like data amounts.
For all six categories in 2016, the cheapest deals were in Winnipeg, Regina and Montreal.
The more expensive cellphone packages generally showed the biggest price differences. The top category listed family plans offering unlimited talk, texting, 10 GB of data, and three phone lines. The average price per month was $180 in Winnipeg, $182 in Regina, and $190 in Montreal.
Halifax, Vancouver and Ontario all ranged between $250 and $257 per month — at least 39 per cent higher than the average Winnipeg rate.

Tech analyst Daniel Bader says cell customers in Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Quebec enjoy cheaper rates because those provinces all have a strong regional competitor that can compete with the top three telecom companies: Telus, Rogers and Bell.
In Manitoba, the competitor is Manitoba Telecom Services (MTS). Itbegan as a Crown corporation in the early 1900s and was privatized in 1997.
Saskatchewan has SaskTel, which was also founded in the early 1900s, and remains a Crown corporation.
Bader says the two regional players' established history and attractive deals make them serious contenders with the big three.
"MTS and SaskTel have just never charged as much for their services as the other telecom companies," says the senior editor with the tech site Mobile Nations
"Bell, Rogers, Telus coming into a market with an established incumbent, they were forced to undercut those prices and meet the market where it was."
Quebec also has a strong fourth regional player — Videotron — whichlaunched a provincewide wireless business in 2010. Bader says Videotron's prices undercut the competition, forcing other players to also lower rates.
"Videotron helped bring prices down to a level that the market would be happy to settle at. They've been doing that very well to this day."

Will it last?

Bader says the lower prices offered in Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Quebec make it clear that "we need a strong fourth player in each market" to bring Canadians more affordable wireless service.
But some of the current competition could soon disappear. The Saskatchewan government recently made noises about selling SaskTel.

In Manitoba, Bell has agreed to buy MTS for $3.9 billion. The takeover deal is subject to approval by a number of government agencies.
Many people in the province predict if the deal goes through, it will mean a rise in cell plan prices.
"I'm not impressed with that," Winnipeg resident Lloyd Gwilliam told CBC News. He's happy with his current Bell deal where he and his wife each have a wireless plan totalling $100 a month. But Gwilliam fears that could soon change.
"They're promising extra infrastructure, so how do you pay for that? You've got to move up the rates."
CBC News asked Bell its plans if the deal goes through. It said that its acquisition will include an investment of $1 billion over five years to expand broadband and wireless services in Manitoba.
We inquired if higher prices were also in the cards but the company didn't address the question.

Shaw: the dark horse

On the national front, Bader does point to one glimmer of hope, the new kid on the block: Shaw. The telco has the means to become a strong fourth wireless carrier in Canada once it finishes upgrading its wireless network sometime in 2017.
Earlier this year, Shaw snapped up Wind Mobile for $1.6 billion. Wind operates mainly in big cities in Alberta, B.C. and Ontario.
Bader says the telco still faces some hurdles turning Wind into a serious contender. But he believes if Shaw is successful and offers even slightly lower rates, it could spark a price war.
"If their network even smells of being competitive with Bell, Rogers and Telus, people will move over," he says.

Petronas weighs sale to exit $27B Canada LNG project: sources

Malaysian state oil firm Petronas is considering selling its majority stake in the $27-billion Canadian liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant on the Pacific coast.

Malaysian state oil firm Petroliam Nasional Bhd is considering selling its majority stake in a $27-billion Canadian liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant, three people familiar with the matter said this week.
Petroliam Nasional, or Petronas, is weighing options for the project as its finances have been squeezed after crude oil prices have collapsed by more than 50 per cent since mid-2014.
Additionally, the economics of the project have been called into question as LNG prices for delivery into the main markets in northeast Asia have slumped more than 70 per cent over nearly the same time period.
Petronas was given the go-ahead for the project by the Canadian government earlier this week. It said then that executives would study the conditions imposed by Canadian authorities and conduct a review before deciding on next steps.
The project would be built on Lelu Island off Canada's pacific coast near the Alaska border, and would include a liquefaction facility, gas pipeline and upstream components. It is anticipated to produce up to 19.2 million tonnes per year of liquid natural gas, comprising about eight per cent of last year's global trade.
Petronas, asked about the potential sale on Friday, said it will not provide any additional comment.
The sources said Petronas has been considering a sale for months, after it became apparent that a Canadian approval was possible, but had yet to take a final decision.
Other options are also being considered, including putting it on ice, as finding a buyer in current market conditions would be difficult.
Petronas signed on for the project in 2012 through acquisition of Canada's Progress Energy. That year, LNG prices climbed as high as $18.17 per million British thermal units (mmBtu), but have fallen to $5.75 per mmBtu since then.
If suspended, the project would be put on ice until gas prices start turning around and Petronas is confident of securing long-term contracts at reasonable prices, said the sources, who declined to be identified as the negotiations are not public.
Petronas has minority partners for the project in China, India, Japan and Brunei. 


Global carbon dioxide levels reach highest point ever, likely for good

Global carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere have surpassed 400 parts per million, and will almost certainly remain there indefinitely, according to new numbers from the Scripps carbon dioxide monitoring program at the Mauna Loa observatory in Hawaii.
The 400-level has long been considered a benchmark of irreversible damage to the environment.
"We're really in uncharted territory," said Ralph Keeling from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, who directs the program. "It's too bad we're this deep into it already, but that's the fact."
The level has swung above 400 parts per million before, but this is the first time it will have stayed that high for all 12 months of the year.
While the year isn't over yet, the month of September almost always has the lowest levels, because it comes at a time when plentiful summer plants in the Northern Hemisphere slow down their carbon dioxide uptake and begin to die off in the fall.
Keeling said that sometimes October has a lower number, but it's only happened four times since 2002. He said it's unlikely that the number will dip below 400 parts per million this year.
And to make matters worse, we've surpassed that benchmark more quickly than anticipated, said Keeling.
"It was first in 2014 that we had a monthly value that was above the 400 level. So it only took a year and a half or two years to overwhelm that natural cycle," he said.
The number is also unlikely to decrease. Keeling said that even if we implement the best environmental policies tomorrow, it would take hundreds of years to stabilize and then lower the levels.

40% rise since Industrial Revolution

Carbon dioxide levels can seem an obscure concept, making it difficult for people to gauge what, exactly, is going on.
To put it into context, Danny Harvey, a professor in the department of geography at the University of Toronto, who teaches about climate change, explains that before the Industrial Revolution, carbon dioxide levels were around 280 parts per million.
"So that's about a 40 per cent increase, and way, way outside the range of the last million years," he explained.
This, coupled with temperature increases, puts the planet on track to become ice-free at some point in the future.
"It doesn't mean all the ice is going to melt in the next 100 or 1,000 years, but it does give you a perspective on just how big these changes are and the trajectory of where we're heading," he said.

Harvey said if we do nothing, we're on a clear path toward a climate that is between 1.5 and 4.0 degrees warmer, with carbon dioxide levels around 450 or 500 parts per million.
In order to stop that increase, the world would have to eliminate fossil fuel emissions completely by 2060.

'Status quo isn't on the table'

But this latest benchmark is just one of many that scientists have been warning about for years.
On Thursday, the Pembina Institute released a report saying that Canada is not on track to meet its 2020 or 2030 climate goals.
"Climate change is a more difficult policy problem than anything we've ever faced before," said Kathryn Harrison, a political science professor at the University of British Columbia who studies climate change policy.
The intangibility of the problem makes it a challenge to address.
"Left to their own devices, individuals will make rational decisions to use fossil fuels, because the benefits of driving your car to work — you get those," said Harrison. "While the costs of driving your car are spread among everybody across the planet and to future generations."
Harrison said that's where governments come in — she said leaders will have to be courageous in their plans.
"Because the option of staying the way things are now — it isn't available to us," she said. "The status quo isn't on the table, and I think that's a message that hasn't come through loud and clear."

Game not over yet

Harrison and Harvey both said that the costs of implementing policies that would reduce our greenhouse gas emissions would be about one or two per cent of the country's gross domestic product.
Harrison said this could include making cars on the road more efficient, tightening environmental rules for new construction projects, and phasing out fossil fuel extraction.
"Those things are not crazy and radical," she said.
Despite the glum news, Harvey said all isn't lost.
He said we're in a position now similar to a hockey team that's down a goal in the last two minutes of the third period.
"You might still win the game, but you have to pull your goalie, put your best players on the ice, and then maybe get that goal and then win in overtime."
He said if we want a chance of winning the so-called game and limiting warming as much as possible, then "we have to go flat out."
