We start today with President Trump’s new climate panel, the Vatican’s meeting on the sex abuse crisis, and the performer Jussie Smollett’s arrest.
President Trump is planning to establish a 12-member committee to study whether global warming affects national security, despite existing government reports showing such a threat.
According to a White House memo released last week, the panel will include William Happer, a Princeton physicist who has said that carbon dioxide — a greenhouse gas that scientists say is warming the planet — is beneficial to humanity.
The effort to establish the panel appears to be the latest step by the Trump administration to question the science of climate change.
Perspective: The effects of climate change are a daily presence in Miami. In an Op-Ed, Ban Ki-moon, former secretary general of the United Nations; and Francis Suarez, the city’s mayor, wrote about Miami’s efforts to adapt.
At the Vatican today, Pope Francis called for “concrete and effective measures” to address child sexual abuse, an issue that has devastated and eroded faith in some corners of the Roman Catholic Church while being utterly ignored and denied in others.
Survivors have pushed for uniform laws to impose zero tolerance. But Vatican officials say that legal and cultural barriers to identifying abusers make putting in place a global standard virtually impossible.
The conference instead will amount to a kind of crash course for church leaders on how to handle abuse cases — and to convince some that the problem exists at all.
Voices: “We clearly think something can be done, and we are waiting for specific actions,” said Marek Lisinski, 50, from Poland, who was molested when he was 13 by a priest who remains in ministry.
The “Empire” actor reported a hate crime last month, saying he had been attacked in downtown Chicago by masked men who shouted homophobic and racial slurs. Mr. Smollett is in custody this morning after being charged with filing a false report, as prosecutors say he staged the assault himself.
Mr. Smollett, through his lawyers, had denied any role in coordinating an attack.
The background: Investigators had difficulty corroborating Mr. Smollett’s account from the beginning, even with about a dozen detectives assigned to the case. They eventually tracked down two men who appeared on video footage not far from the scene. The men turned out to be brothers who knew Mr. Smollett.
As the economic crisis in Venezuela has deepened into one of the worst in Latin American history, more than three million people have fled the country — largely on foot.
One morning, children, grandmothers, teachers, nurses, oil workers and the jobless found themselves bound by a collective will to escape dangerous shortages of food, electricity and medicine, as well as political unrest.
Their willingness to brave treacherous mountain roads to reach Colombia spoke to the desperation in Venezuela.
Yesterday: Venezuela closed its borders with three Caribbean islands to block aid shipments organized by the opposition. The move came before a Saturday deadline to end a blockade and allow in humanitarian aid that has been piling up for more than a week.If you have 10 minutes, this is worth itThe disappeared children of Israel
In the Jewish state’s early years, new immigrants were placed in transit camps because of housing shortages. Women who gave birth in overburdened hospitals or who took their infants to the doctor were told that their children had suddenly died.
Most of the children who disappeared were from the Yemenite and other “Mizrahi” communities, an umbrella term for Jews from North Africa and the Middle East, and DNA testing has proved that some of them are still alive. A younger generation is demanding answers.
Court curbs asset seizures: The Supreme Court ruled unanimously on Wednesday that the Constitution limits the ability of states and localities to take and keep cash and other private property used to commit crimes. The practice, known as civil forfeiture, is a popular way to raise revenue.
Michael Cohen to testify: Mr. Cohen has agreed to publicly appear before Congress on Wednesday to discuss his work as President Trump’s personal lawyer.
No return for woman who joined ISIS: Hoda Muthana, an American-born woman who wants to return home after traveling to Syria to join the Islamic State, will not be readmitted to the U.S., President Trump has said.
Prosecutors outline terrorism plot: A Coast Guard lieutenant who was arrested in Maryland last week was planning to kill journalists, Democratic politicians and what he called “leftists in general,” federal prosecutors have said.
Deadly blaze in Bangladesh: At least 70 people have died after a fire in Dhaka, the capital.
Baby powder safety: Johnson & Johnson said it was being investigated by the U.S. authorities over concerns about possible asbestos contamination of its talc-based products.
Snapshot: Above, Horsetail Fall in Yosemite National Park this week. Each February, the setting sun on the face of El Capitan creates the appearance of a so-called firefall.
Barack Obama’s presidential library: The planned center in Chicago will not include a research library or any of Mr. Obama’s official presidential records, according to newly released details. Roughly 30 million pages of unclassified records will be digitized and made available online.
Foldable smartphones: Samsung’s newly unveiled Galaxy devices incorporate new features that may start spreading to other smartphones, our tech columnist writes.
Late-night comedy: Seth Meyers commented on the million raised by Bernie Sanders for his presidential bid: “Great for Sanders, but terrible for the guy behind him at Coinstar.”
What we’re reading: this Topic feature. Michael Wines, a national correspondent, writes: “Here’s what happened to 15 folks who got financial windfalls — not a million bucks, except in a couple of cases, but enough to change their lives, if they chose.”Now, a break from the news

Those grateful lines are from an ode to Sake (or Sheikh) Dean Mahomed, a Bengali who introduced the concept of shampooing to Britain.
Mahomed, who died on or around this day in 1851, had many talents. In 1794, he became the first Indian to publish a book in English. In 1810, he opened the first Indian restaurant in England, the Hindoostane Coffee House in London.
But it was his next project that put him on the map. In 1814, he opened a Brighton bathhouse offering luxurious steam baths that ended with a signature head massage, known in India as “champi,” or “shampoo.”
He claimed that the popular massage cured an assortment of ailments, including asthma and paralysis, in a book titled, aptly, “Shampooing: Or, Benefits Resulting From the Use of Indian Medicated Vapor Bath.”
He was eventually given a royal warrant as the “Shampooing Surgeon” to the king.
