4:05 pm
their feet for far too long. as a result too many lives have been lost. too much of fertile land has been destroyed, too much drought, too many floods. too long to catch up now. >> as now the hard work begins. you know when you come to these conferences there's a huge diversity of people with all sorts of different talents and knowledge and special advertise. and we found a gem in the shape of sir david attenboro. to bring the best scientists together, distributorring gathering and storing power from nonpolluting sources, that is to say from the sun. and to do so at a price which undercuts how much it costs to produce energy from coal. so at a blow you simply stop

4:10 pm
technology and science can be married up with the efforts to combat climate change. >> and prime minister you set a bold carbon reduction target for islands themselves. what message are you sending to other countries? >> that if a small country like ours can undertake to reduce its own emissions, then other cubs can do -- countries can do the same. we don't have much more resources to pursue this line of action. to combat climate change. but if we can do it, so can the others. we also are very sure that there will be resolution to the question of financing for adaptation and mitigation for developing countries. it has to be something that paris comes out of. and it cannot be a repetition of copenhagen and i'm sure that everyone understands what that means. if we can convince the developed countries to just live up to
4:11 pm
some of the ambitions that they have expressed in the past year, two years, i think we have a chance at least combating climate change to the point where the small island countries have an opportunity to develop around the pathways that dictate a zero carbonization by the middle of the century. and a reduction in temperature goals from the current projected 2.7 to 1.5, 1.8. >> minister what about the challenges that still exist? we heard from the chinese president earlier saying that it was important the respect the differences between developed and developing countries. and the fact that developing countries still have to develop, how does that fit in to making environmentally safe progress?
4:12 pm
>> just because people have made a mess in the past does not mean that in the future, people need to repeat that mess. technology is such that now we don't have to pollute the earth in order to develop. the opportunities to develop with technology, as it is now, in clean and sustainable energy, are all out there. all we need to do is get the political will, the proper financing and the cooperation of development, and developing states, to pursue climate change programs in that way. we cannot justify further polluting the earth just because, in the past 50 years, it's been polluted by other people. >> foreign minister tony de bedroom joining me from stockholm. thank you very much. >> thank you very much. >> coming up on the al jazeera newshour, votes are being

against i.s.i.l. in syria and in iraq. the headquarters many ways of the terrorists actually is in syria and it makes no sense to recognize this border in the action we take when i.s.i.l. themselves don't recognize this border. so it's in the national interest, it's the right thing to do. we'll be acting with our allies, we will be carefully responsible as we do so but in my view it's right the do this to help keep our country safe. >> more than 44 people have been buried in the syrian town of ariha, activists have accused russia of carrying out that attack, syrian and russian jet attacks continue. a warning you might find some of the images in osama ben javad's rowrjavad'sreport disturbing.

4:20 pm
warning civilians to take flight. >> iraq's largest province anbar, operation had a break through an thursday when they took the key palestine bridge, connecting ramadi and fallujah of i.s.i.l. stronghold, that means the i.s.i.l. are effectively cut into two and cannot reinforce their fighters in ramadi. they are going into neighborhoods very slowly very methodically. prime minister haider al-abadi has often blamed everything from the heat to the lack of u.s. led air strikes. those air strikes have been key, weakened i.s.i.l. forces around

iraqi forces to go in. what we've also been told is any civilians are able to leave as long as they wave a white flag. we haven't seen any pictures of anybody waving white flags neither are there confirmed accounts of being civilians being able to leave. but it will be seen as a very key victory against i.s.i.l. particularly in anbar province. >> two israeli teenagers have been found guilty of killing a palestinian are last year. burned alive. as stefanie dekker reports from outside the court in occupied east jerusalem a third suspect is yet to be convicted. >> an insanity plea at the last hour. this is the man accused of masterminding the murder of a palestinian teenager.

while in his family home. another was murdered while serving as an usher in his church. all these events took place, mostly in the 1990s. but the controversy over abortion is still red-hot. and all of the republican candidates for the nomination for president for next year's election are strongly anti-abortion. many of them appearing on television said they attributed the action of robert lewis dear, the alleged actions of robert lewis dear to alleged instability. only one would determine it a case of domestic terrorism. and there's been a back and forth between the proponents of abortion rights and anti-abortion activists with organizations like planned parenthood, saying that this hateful atmosphere that's been created and a lot of vitriolic

4:44 pm
sdr basket or special drawing reserve how does it work? >> for the average person the sdr doesn't mean very much. it is essentially an artificial basket of currencies that the imf generally uses when it borrows money from its member-states and as such is really sort of an intragovernmental thing that doesn't affect the man on the street. but on the other hand, what can you view the sdr as is essentially an attempt to create a single global currency. what should that currency look like and which national currency should be included in it? now it has been decided rightly in my opinion that the chinese yuen should be included in this best prkapproximation of the gll
4:45 pm
currency. >> what does this allow china the do? >> it doesn't really allow china to do much different today. it will probably create demand for certain banks, but the real issue in china is first of all one of national prestige. this is clearly something that the chinese government wanted, in place before china becomes or takes the chair of the g-20 next year and it's also an important shall we say process so that it hopes pro-reformers in china that basically can tell people or reform opponents domestically in china, look, the rest of the world and the imf expects us to do these reforms and if we don't do them we'll lose face. it is a vehicle for pro-reformers in china to push through more financial and more marketization in china and
