Lead claimant Gina Miller, co-founder of investment fund SCM Private (C), makes a statement outside the Supreme Court, opposite the Houses of Parliament, in central London on January 24, 2017 after the court's ruling on triggering BrexitThe British government is set to propose legislation to push Brexit through parliament following a landmark court ruling on Tuesday seen as a setback for Prime Minister Theresa May. The Supreme Court judgement found the government must win parliament's approval before starting talks for Britain to leave the European Union, following the country's divisive referendum which saw 52 percent vote to leave the bloc. May had wanted to start the Brexit process -- invoking Article 50 of the EU treaty -- without a vote in parliament, but she failed to overturn a High Court ruling that said lawmakers must be consulted.

The report by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) set the "extreme" scenario of global average sea level rise by 2100 to 8.2 feet (2.5 meters), up half a meter from the last estimate issued in 2012. "We raised the upper limit of our scenarios," lead author William Sweet told AFP.
