The U.S. may have pulled out, but Amazon says it will try to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement a decade early. Founder and CEO Jeff Bezos says company is taking the Climate Pledge, which would make the e-commerce giant net zero carbon by 2040. Amazon also plans to deploy 100-thousand electric delivery vehicles.       A federal judge in California is stopping the state's new law that would force presidential candidates to release their tax returns to get their names on state election ballots. The judge ordered a temporary injunction halting the law, saying it's beyond the power of the states. A final ruling on the issue will be made later this month.        At least two people are dead in Texas in the aftermath of Tropical Storm Imelda. The National Weather Service reports Imelda has dumped over 43 inches of rain in Jefferson County, making it the 7th wettest tropical cyclone in U.S. history.       A new study by top bird watchers and government agencies says North America's bird population has been cut in half in 50 years. That's an estimated three billion birds. Researchers say pesticides that kill insects the birds eat might be one cause.       Two members of Cuba's United Nations mission are being expelled from the U.S. over claims they tried to conduct "influence operations" in the U.S. The State Department notified the Cuban government that the two had abused their diplomatic privileges. The Trump administration is also limiting travel privileges for other members of Cuba's U.N. team in New York.       Merriam-Webster is expanding the definition of the word "they" to refer to a single person whose gender identity is non-binary. In a post about the new dictionary word, Merriam-Webster says it's a use that is sometimes called "singular they," which has a long history in the English language.
