Milos Raonic needs something special to stop Murray from Wimbledon 2016 title

Todays match between Milos Raonic and Andy Murray is likely to be a tough match as both players have shown tremendous character to reach the finals at the 2016 edition of Men's Singles finals, the most coveted Tennis trophy in the career of any Tennis player in the world.

Given that Milos Raonic is playing is first grand slam final could make him to give his best, I think it will be close match.

Andy Murray on the other hand has grown in experience over the years and is in tremendous form and if at all he wins the title, then it will show, how he has matured over the years.

Speaking about Murray's game at this stage of career, it has grown tremendously over the years, he is serving big, making it count when it matters, and winning the break points consistently.

Raonic need to be wary as Murray won't let him breathe easy and has an impeccable style of play, he is never out of the game till the last point.

Murray has improved his accuracy in his shots, they are more penetrating the court and has wide reach of the court. So, something special is needed

Historc Paris Climate Accord reached

In Paris delegates from hundreds of nations have approved landmark Climate accord. 

It is for the first time that such an agreement has been reached between participating members, earlier summit in Copenhagen collapsed owing to the mutual differences between two of the world's biggest Carbon Emission countries US and China. 

It is too early to say what the future holds for this accord, but the leaders have pledged to agree to follow the pact in letter and spirit.

As for now there are now no legal bindings on the member countries to present before any public authority any data related to emissions. 

But come 2020 the nations are legally bound to present the data to public authorities, thus creating a "name and shame" kind of policy to indicate the violators of pollution norms established by the just reached Paris Accord.

In the United States there is stiff opposition to the Climate politics where every Republican candidate have questioned the science of Climate Change and voiced opposition to the Climate Change policies of the Obama administration.

The Accord means a major shift from the existing business policies moving away from investments in Oil and Gas, Coal and other Fossil fuel based energies to clean energies like Solar, Wind and Nuclear Energy with zero carbon emission.
