captured by the armed group al nusra front, and despite losing control of most of the country, president bashar al-assad, and his allies insist he is vital to the fight against groups like i.s.i.l. the syrian opposition, along with their western and golf allies don't -- gulf allies don't agree. >> today the syrian people have a number of priorities. number one is bashar al-assad must leave. the second is to uproot terrorism. we must take these matters into consideration while pondering a solution. >> while the solution appears to be limited to discussions, on the ground the bashar al-assad government is finding it hard to retain control of opposition fighters. it's air superiority had by russian air strikes is no match for those that want to get rid
of bashar al-assad. the latest escalation of violence in syria raises concerns of a wider conflict. as long as russia and turkey are divided, and how to solve of the crisis, fighting will continue, more people are likely to die the european union promises to give turkey 3.2 million, to help them cope with millions of syrian refugees. the catch is the e.u. wants turkey to keep the refugee from trying to get to europe. al jazeera has more on the talks from e.u. headquarters in brussels. >> reporter: an historic day, that's how the summit to seal the tradeoff was described. ankara gets more than $3 billion. to help and stop the people traffickers, that may have caused hundreds of thousands to
leave for greece. the accession process is being taken out of the deep freeze. there are strings attached. >> let me stress we are not rewriting the e.u. policy. the negotiating framework and the conclusions apply, including the nature and respect for values, and also on human rights. >> the failure to agree quotas led to scenes like these at the greece macedonia border on saturday. many refugees head for germany as a preferred destination. for angela merkel, criticized at home, it's time to reverse the flow. >> turkey will take third party nationals. in the fall of next year, we'll see if the conditions are

pamphlets, interesting within three minutes of meeting them. >> no more baby parts after surrendering to police. nevertheless, questions about the anti-abortion rhetoric may have played in the shooting, dominating talk shows. on a.b.c. this week, the head of planned parenthood rocky mountain chapter said hate speech fuelled an act of domestic terrorism. >> i can't believe this isn't contributing to folks, mentally unwell or not. i'm thinking it's okay to target planned planned parenthood or target abortion survivors. mike hucklebee recalled some matters. >> they say it creates the environment where it happened. do you agree with that? >> i think it's a little
disingenuous on the part of planned planned parenthood blaming those with a strong philosophical disagreement. saying that we would like to retaliate by sending a madman into the clinic. calling the shooter a maniac. trump admitted dislike for planned parenthood has been bolstered. it has foetal tissue research. >> i will tell you, there's a tremendous group of people that think it's terrible that all of the videos that they have seen with some of the people from planned parenthood, like you are selling parts to a car. >> it will be days before finishing processing the evidence from the shootings. meanwhile, a portrait is emerging of robert deer junior,

beneficial to the world community, and the united states made a real mistake when they eliminated the programme, where we could search foreign known terrorist programs to see if they could talk to anyone in the united states. it makes sense to the american people. congress took it away from the n.s.a. it's not going to be a timely tool to use in the future. >> the senator said americans expect the committee. >> a big endorsement in bean town for hillary clinton. >> thank you. thank you. boston mayor announced a support for president. after a rally dubbed hard hats for hillary clinton. she wants to spend 225 billion

night before i go to bed. and i wake up every morning posing that question. what do i do. >> diamond was freed unexpectedly. sent home serving an 11 year sentence. >> i reported the first right and was told that it was my fault. >> diamond identifies as a transgender woman, locked up in an all-male prison. raped, beat up and verbally abused. >> i would be in a cell with a rapist. convicted murderer and long sentences over 200 years. when her story landed in the "new york times," there was a flood of calls. while in prison diamond recorded
this. six months after the southern poverty law center filed suit climbing the georgia department of elections proposed care. georgia's parole board freed her. the prison denied her the hormones she had been taking for half her life. >> we had earlier indications that the loss was successful. one thing that happened is the department of corrections agreed to change is number of policies. while in prison. without the medical treatment, diamond took action, attempting suicide and self-kavt ration. today she says she's experiencing post-traumatic stress disorder. >> four years in prison, verbally abused.

covered in sweat from head to toe. because when i do go to sleep. i'm on so much medication, you know, anti-psych otics. sleep aids, that i'm becoming immune to that. nationally the majority of transgender women in gale is housed with men. federal prodding. many are changing their policies. >> what is unprecedented, the speed with which we see results, it's not a subject of debate. care and treatment is a constitutional violation. >> for ashley, the wounds are open and breathing. >> i question if i'm safe under my own hands. there was a lot of suicide attempts. that is lingering thought. that, you know, that stays with

hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets calling for significant environmental policy changes at the u.n. summit. more than 200 people were arrested when they defied an order not to protest. it is sunday night and time for a look at the week ahead. the paris climate sug it, more than 150 world leaders are arriving at the capital. the meeting aimed at getting everyone on board in the effort to limit greenhouse gas emissions worldwide. the way to see results is to stop the planet's temperature from rising more than 2 degrees celsius above where it was before the industrial revolution. many countries took steps to fight climate change, officials say it's time for an international effort to search the common good. we have this report from paris. final preparations made.
finishing touches applied. the official touches becomes u.n. territory for the u.n. conference. it's indicative of how indicatory the event is, where the chief is pursued by the strong for a tour of the site. >> what is finalised in paris is none other than the second legally binding instrument underconvention that would then go into effect in 2020 once through the kyoto protocol. >> the question is to what extent can it be bindable. it is coming at the beginning of the summit rather than the end. lima, warsaw, doha, copenhagen in denmark, they trip off the tup, the previous summits as a roll call of inactions and
little progress. all the science says there's no time to lose. effect of extreme weather are evident. ocean warming, seas rising. the target is to stop temperatures increasing 2 degrees. >> gym hanson a former scientist. >> jim hanson has been warning of climate change since the 1990s. with no global reductions in emissions. then our children and grandchildren inherit a situation out of control. ice sheets will melt, and the coastal cities will be doomed. >> nearly every country at the
negotiations put forward proposals on how they plan to keep emissions down. >> the trouble is it will be 3 degrees over preindustrial time. we are at 1 degree at the moment. we are already the hottest year ever. it was the hottest year, we see records, storms throughout other events about climate change. >> changes are enormous, the debate hard and furious in a search for united front against climate change. >> joining us is professor green, assistant professor of environmental studies. and an visor to the energy industry. and advisor to the energy group.
he said he would begin with a brief summary. >> there are two things on the table. the first and most important. each country is making a voluntary commitment. as each country chooses to do so, it was appropriate for political context. it's about money. how much money, how much will they give it to the developing world and transition to clean the economy. the question to you, president obama is being looked at as the leaders of what comes out of the conference. >> how much influence does president obama have, given the act he has difficulty with whatever he proposing to conquest. >> he'll have difficulty for
anything that comes out of paris. the one big advantage that the u.s. brings, is technology and finance. the ability of finance that the u.s. can put forth, and technology that will be crucial to any agreement. >> nothing was accomplished. what is different this time. >> i think there are a number of things that are different. people are becoming frightened. second, previous efforts have not worked. we need to do something. instead of taking a top-down
approach countries decided a relaxed approach is the way to go. making it more appropriate for countries to move forward. protocols apply to developing nartion, whatever fuel sources they have. how difficult will it be to manage the conflict. >> it requires developed countries, this time around the world said everybody needs to try to reduce their emission, and the way that they have circumvented the difficulty described, developing countries want to build their countries, is to choose their own ways to reduce. these are imposed by a third party or international law. rather each country is presenting its own nationally
determined contribution. it was to say this is what we'll do, we'll green the industry. whatever we think will work best in our country with your contacts is the way each will move forward. >> you are talking about the nationally determined contributions. to the best of your knowledge, how are those contributions, those self-directed goals working at this point towards reaching that 2 degree celsius threshold. >> has your preview tated, they are nowhere near the 2 degree target. closer to the target, it is a step in the right direction. this is the start to
negotiations. hopefully through this positive approach of cooperations, putting forth we see what is going to be a long process, you prmpt me to arriving the question. to what will extent is it a political show, leading to policies that can and will be implemented by all of the parties? >> well, i strongly feel that it is not a political show. this is the first time we see willingness from the parties to sit around the table and identify the best path to move forward. we are not the 2 degree target. we are on the path to setting up accountability, transparency, and a path to get there, and
revision of the targeted. i think we need to see the political leadership. the launch of initiative. technology that can help us. definitely not a political show. you have written about how this could work in reducing gren house emissions. >> it's not only a show in paris, there's ms apparent the world trying to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
despite what happens. california. they have a track and trade missing. the price carbon, 13 barrels a tonne. 85 per cent is covered. private actors are collecting data. investors are taking those data into consideration when they are making big investment decisions, so despite going forward, the question is how much will they contribute to getting to the 2 degrees target. >> hold the point, please. >> president obama's clean power is not welcomed to open arms, 27
states sued to stop it. it is also about jabs. west virginia gets 95% of power from goal. when you take an axe to a problem. you tend to hurt whole segments of the society. we think people are trying to take the bread and butter off the table. when do you fight back. >> demonstrators are pushing for carbon capture, reducing emissions while using coal. professor green, let me ask you, how do you balance with a state like kentucky, that is so dependent on coal, which produces problems, right, for greenhouse gases. how do you balance their
concerns with protecting the environment. >> they have legitimate concerns. at the end of the day everyone has concerns. we have to transition away from face ill fuel. coal is the dirtiest and natural gas and shale. we have to make the balance and move ahead. the clean power plan built in flexibility so states can decide how to reach the goal. at the end of the day some plants will be closed. >> people will lose their jobs. >> new jobs will be created, and people will lose their jobs because of climate change as well. we have to take that into consideration. what is your answer to the question of balance. i know that you are involved in
pribility enterhighs. with report to certainly issues. i'm we have to increase the share of clean technologies, given what was discussed with records to the clean power plant, it doesn't mean a move away from coal. we need new technologies helping us with the problems. it's not just coal. it's going to have to be gas and industry. what you mentioned before, the carbon capture and storage is one such path. in addition to others. in efficiency. when you are talking about jobs, in eastern europe.
goal production by 2030 or 2040, you need to have very supportive at the government level. to develop a portfolio. to allow countries to manage the interaction between goals, energy security and goals at the local level which translates into jobs. >> i have a different position. >> let me interrupt you there and ask a question about tax credits. cap and trade. the methodologies, how effective have they been. i'll put it to you professor green. the first answer is this is an evolving process. the oldest carbon market in the e.u. since 2006. the california market came
online. we work in the sense we assigned rights to carbon emissions. as the caps get progressively ratcheted down, so, too, do emissions go down. the question and whether governments about will be willing to ratchet those down, and at what price - what the price will be. right now they are trading the achievement. i understand that you don't think they have been working too well in europe. >> i don't think they have been achieving a state of goals. working in some regards. we as a global community are learning how to do this better. they were going through various reiterations of our own system and work on improving past failures. if we look at the carbon markets to deliver on the 2 degrees
reduction, they need to be strengthened, they need wider participation. they need to reduce the amount of free credit. and really create a market system, not a hybrid system where we have allegations with a cap that is generous, keeping the price of carbon low we have not discussed individual responsibility in what people can do, that is a topic for another day. let me thank my guests. professor green and mikhaila. thank you for joining us for our week at look ahead the monarch butterfly population was about a billion strong. that is down to millions. next - a safe haven for the colourful creatures, a butterfly sank tu air wra in mexico.
we are looking at 77 counties at state of emergency because of the storm and flooding. as we go through the night and into tomorrow we are looking at bad weather pushing to the indecent. details after this. >> hundreds of thousands of people became disenfranchised and took to insurgency. >> from their beginnings in the iraq war... >> when the americans landed in iraq they overturned a centuries old system of power. >> to the front lines of syria. >> those atrocities primed them for when isil came knocking and said "we're your savior". >> the untold story of isil and the fight against terror. >> this is going to be a real time bomb.
wintry weather led to dangerous driving. not only does a driver hit a car, he barrels into the scene of a prior crash, before rolling down an embankment. there were similar crashes up and down the interstate. meteorologist kevin corriveau is here with more. we are talking from thanksgiving day to now. icy weather, snowy weather, and we are not done yet. there's a lot of rain to the south. i want to show you video. take a look at what icing does. powerlines are heavy, pulling down the lines, and with this
tomorrow, anywhere from kansas, oklahoma to texas, we saw 11 deaths related to the storm, and now in oklahoma alone, 100,000 people are still without power in this area. let's take a look. as we go through the next couple of hours. the temperatures are cool. charged at 35, temperatures below freezing. in the overnight hours. right now, we have winter storm warnings in effect. we have ice storm warnings. we are getting icing with a warning anywhere between an eighth of an inch and a quarter of an inch in the areas. this will be on towards noon. all the way to minnesota. as you can see. we'll see snow. sunday is a busy day travelling. taking -- take a look at flight
away.com. we have a lot of active weather. we have no delays. he had no delays towards parts of memphis. delays are here in new york city and tomorrow we'll see the snow. here through colorado, and nebraska. where you see the rain. unfortunately, he said over the east coast. that rain will continue. we'll get plenty of it. for minnesota, your days were tuesday and wednesday, and there would be rain tuesday and wednesday. >> for decades. a wall separated the rich and poor in peru's capital city, some say it keeps people safe and ostracizes those. we visit communities on both sides of the wall in lima.
>> it's 10km long, and many call it the wall of shame. a rich neighbourhood. on the other. on the poorest area of lima. the gap is the highest in latin american. nowhere is that more clear than here. this person watched the wall built in the last 30 years. >> the war was built. over the need for safety and security it has justified the existence for some. tens of thousands have illegally improved. like many here. this man and his family live on land that belongs to the rich. on the other side there's sew e sewage, electricity and water.
it is wrong. there are walls everywhere in the city. it's in the discriminatory. however, on the other side it is discriminatory, it divides us from poor people. 30% of lima's residents have been a victim of crime. many across the capital build security families. from the wall of shame. in this poor neighbourhood, people are living in gated communities because of insecurity. millions live in poor conditions and crimes are high as a result of a lack of urban planning. >> lima's military - lima is one of the most insecure communities because of crime. elite and poor enclose
themselves with walls to defend themselves. >> reporter: the government says it's taking action by increasing police presence, and better training of officers. back at this home. he understands how some may see the wallace being discriminatory. it's not important for him. for him it's about having safety for his family. so much so his wife has to stay home to protect what little they own. rather than going to work to earn a living the annual migration of millions of monarch butterflies from canada to mexico draws spectators. scientists are alarmed because numbers making the journey dropped. rob matheson has more on what has been done to lure them back to the sanctuary in mexico a sanctuary after a journey of thousands of kilometres. these butterflies flew from the cold of the winter to the warm
temperatures of mexico. >> this is a pilgrimage. it crosses 5,000 kilometres from canada to here. we are taking care of them so this continues. we protect the areas here. >> in the last 20 years, the butterflies numbers have gone down, in 1996, one billion made the flight to mexico. there were around 35 million last year. >> the job has been blamed on illegal tree cutting and increased use of pesticides and climate change. large areas of milkweed plants have been destroyed. mexico, the u.s. and canada have been planting more trees and tightened controls and logging in the use of foreign chemicals. >> it is our responsibility to take care of these places. there are few places in the world. two or three maybe it's amazing
to see the butterflies arrive. >> changes mean millions more butterflies. and more tourists. >> thank you for joining us, i'm randall pinkston in new york. next, fault linls, an investigation of the oil boom in north dakota and high fatality rates. fault lines looks at who should be responsible. i'll be back with another hour of news, 11:00pm eastern. 8:00 pacific. 8:00 pacific. >> it's crazy money that you can make here. >> behind america's oil boom. >> it's a ticking time bomb. >> uncovering shocking working conditions. >> do you know what chemicals have been in that tank? >> and the deadly human cost. >> my big brother didn't wake up the next day. >> "faultlines". al jazeera america's
>> the us is now the world's largest oil and gas producer, in part because of what's happening here in north dakota, where advances in fracking have unlocked crude oil in the bakken shale formation in the western part of the state. north dakota is now producing more than a million barrels of oil a day. ten years ago there were fewer than 200 oil-producing wells in the bakken. now there are more than 8,000. >> they call it boomtown usa this is where all the money is. it's crazy the amount of money
