to shut down miller's russia best to geisha and i don't believe he's going to fire robert muller but i can tell you this there's a lot of pressure on the congress on the attorney general to put an end to this fishing expedition not one shred of evidence has connected the president of the united states when he was a candidate and now that he is president any connection to russia there has been no russian coalition that has been uncovered thus far attorney general jeff sessions says mccabe was fired at the recommendation of disciplinary officers for misleading investigators about the bureau's handling of the hillary clinton investigation for months trump has painted mccabe as a stooge for democrats because his wife received campaign money from a clinton ally the fake news is beside themselves that mccabe was caught called out and fired trump tweeted how many hundreds of thousands of dollars was given to wife's campaign by crooked age friend terry m.

it's now a big thing that we're entering them on a six massive streak earth as we know it today will cease to exist until information that reveals the. changed. nature is the eldorado of the twenty first century. a new economic sector with promises of huge returns for investors banks finance corporation and states are attracted into the. barn where protecting landscapes accumulating the landscape so it's a phenomenal opportunity to be able to use a business model to achieve sustainability of major. endangered species impetus to treat it like financial products. can market succeed where politics of
so far failed. but it won't break. up all proofs we're not accounting for the losses because we're not accounting for the income the assets as of the same problem economic invisibility of nature i won a trip to be pre-made so as have people we were just to learn how to protect it and that shouldn't have to do something on. the j.p. morgan chase is that merrill lynch is and bank of america all of these major banks they are the institutions that invest in the businesses that are doing the projects that are having an effect on biodiversity positive or negative. so that is who is behind the ecosystem marketplace who was interested in these markets in their potential and who sits on their boards and committees. and serve it quells day. twenty years ago we still feel that nations and politics
could save the planet one hundred heads of state attended the earth summit in rio the world's largest gathering. just a handful of corporations will present. at the time the idea of business companies helping protect the environment occurred to no one back in one thousand nine hundred two in that there are summit there were mainly representatives from governments and a few from civil society and they actually all thought that business was the reason for all our problems business was bad business worse than watching the environment or whatever other negative implications there would be. there were business council first thing that will develop meanings had a group of some two hundred corporations many of them actually with very bad records on environmental issues like rio tinto shale b.p.
to. create in one thousand two with the goal of their reaching old rio. in two decades multinational corporations have fashioned an effective lobby group. i think we're slowly but certainly moving to a states where it will become equal partners in the discussion i mean maybe i'm expressing the hope more than the reality today but it's certainly a trend that i see happen only if we get business and governments as equal partners in this debate will we find the solutions and this to dissolutions that the world needs. the better paid off at the last summit the united nations rolled out the red carpet for the private companies. you know you know if you don't use it some are. pretty there.
but you do. all these corporations met in a luxury hotel in rio oil chemical steel giants. themselves regularly accused of practices harmful to the environment. it means we do have to be good management centers to explore risks and opportunities we have to understand our ecosystem. just to bring that to life a little bit this is the first great commitment you know deforestation thing we were the first major company to make this kind of commitment. and it was pretty clear to us the area that we really needed to think about was biodiversity and eco system. say look i think most want to do national to turn to
for young. fundamentally i can't when i go to vietnam. to my farm must find a new sauce to get us into meat expose is it obvious you know. it was yes the sea. under me and it got us talk to book and bhopal in india is where a factory exploded in one thousand nine hundred four releasing forty tons of chemicals killing ten thousand and causing sickness to another three hundred thousand and. the same companies that belong to this group in the real daily activities in their o.b. towards government are lobbying for exactly the opposite i love him for policies that benefit their commercial interests that don't affect their activities that they don't need to make any structural changes that they can keep on having devastating impact on communities and then vironment. it only took
twenty years for the banker. the politician. and the businessman the symbolic trinity to begin speaking in harmony about the environment. both for economic history has been a very. adding time because it's seen the emergence of a multinational corporation but part of that emergence and part of that success has been through the. deregulation and the innovations in trade and capital markets so basically i do believe that i'm not talking about environmental interests and i'm talking about you industrial policy. so it's actually not about green growth it is about growth. thank you.
so i trust. it's perceived it could be said it could only come in yellow but i said what i likely will call him and to listen fast as possible because he mean to generally meet us in a meeting is like capacity that they're looking at us human have to plan it that this young with a sort of perception thing but cameras came in that is the fix for to keen on this is. but kill momentum we'll call in capital i'll cut because he did not put his cassette math in capital. in that electricity you need a clean more progressive kannan a green economy an economy that is good for people business and the planet alan has been at the forefront of a community of economists development experts environmental experts social science think that the united nations was converted to to
a point that it's representative of the environment named death as its ambassador today it's a banker who embodies environmental protection in the name of all the nations of the world. lessness unison either cynicism to the system can be latino in most prominent voters the embassy of preval in atlantic is to move in control of the isidro a fundamental amend the psystar this has really and in america the atmosphere as we need it. in oregon as ation which is the indigenous people's organization we're very concerned about this green economy. label we first thought what that sounds good that there economists of the world are starting to fish a you know the greenness of the world green economy are sound good but as we started to look at it we started to see that it was all about privatized sation of
nature. so the un business corporations bankers and politicians all in bed together. is there an international plot against nature. and what if this alliance was the only means of saving the planet. environmentalists like the nature conservancy are working with companies like dow chemical and many other companies sometimes people say to me mark why would you work with companies that have such a big environmental footprint and i say that's exactly why we should work. because protecting nature is expensive and donations and. some have joined forces with multinationals. coming straight from the
business. now if you're in the business that coca-cola it's pretty easy to help them understand that they should care about. water they need and of course. what kinds of investments. will yield the biggest return of clean water now from an old fashioned metal perspective you might think well that's kind of a crass question but if your goal is to mobilize industrial player
like the beverage industry to invest more in nature it's a very important to have answer. to me that. her name. to the development of a market. but many of them also. will not bring benefits to communities. we would however like to believe in this brave new world. believe that the bank and the business corporations have changed.
and. believe that they have face of natural capital and are committed to protecting nature. so what if banks and corporations really have woken up to the impact and dependence on ecological investment. is it a metamorphoses. greenwash. there i'm number she's gaius you may have noticed i think we can do this change the rules of the game so i'm really looking forward to the next ten years because it will completely transform the way we run our economies we will strike a balance between financial or economical success natural or environmental and social success and if we can do that then the vision before nine billion people
all living well was in the boundaries of the planet will become a reality because that's how we measure the way our economy performs. the promise of additional profits coupled with a desire to improve their image has certainly encourage some businesses to commit themselves to preserving the environment valet is a mining giant and a member of the world business council for sustainable development it's train is an institution in brazil. every year from the heart of the amazon to the atlantic ocean the company transports one hundred million tonnes of iron ore over five hundred miles the population benefits from this valley train as they call it. for e l o. l while it might be a very radical all that's going to come out of there getting us a pretty good bet if you are related to mess up the fireplace.
valley operates in thirty eight different countries with a turnover of more than forty six billion dollars aware of its ecological impact the company committed itself to the green economy. it decided to reforest certain areas of the on isn't. it is already replanted over one hundred thousand acres of trees with a further four hundred thousand in the pipeline. but . yes he built this phony guy whole cycle. and you turn twenty twelve valley received the public the prize for. with. the worst examples of work your responsibility if you are in the side
what is needed is not just a recognition of what is. practices but systemic improvements i hope that these awards will raise consciousness of some of the worst practices that are going on in the world today. what did ballet do to deserve such an award what did valley do to trigger the creation of an international victims organization while spending more than a billion dollars each year promoting sustainable development. along its railway track among other things five factories working twenty four hours a day transforming the all into cost. in the process spitting out fall smiling and has a dismay and just. is
a share will pass on. their sourcing. to momma die for that one but there is in our boy solo here proud actually or say no year old daughter or father or bad dad watch that was give. him more our. man. yet in the eyes of the world the world of business and shareholders of course the valley has built a reputation for being green. in the hot of the amazon the multinational operates the planet's most important ion mine and even if it willingly plants trees to offset its impact it also knows how to transform its good deeds into profitable share as for sales on the markets these investments allow it to be listed on the sustainable development index of the stock exchange. yes if.
you do. now both of. us and we move to much for. while claiming to replant the amazonian forest valley is only growing a single species of tree you can live. for next year and just stare served me my spice and. right here i've used in salting some salt photos. quiet place by office all solemn as in our no one muslin and larder there's a process to go large but the solemnly we're going to. see is processor key. leaders and. these are two very.
a few miles away in a natural forest. but in the end a good incentive here to feel of the middle name to. free me to accord us so feared a scene that their whole fear to divide them is more than face a b.q. . is huge fit into looking eyes use. is how easy daughter's face is deployed to don't regard as my orders a cuny though he said formal soul. of your work you just saw. the observing i would have to. be that the eyes prick use me grogan is boss and so yes i'm out there more akin to a akiva stuff for my little honey. in thirty is over land with you can tip this
will become barren. until then the financial markets will have rewarded friday for their green investment ultimately the multinational will make even more profit by selling its trees for by you feel. discouraging a monoculture into a millennia old amazonian rain forest this is one of the great deceptions of the green economy a lie that consists in claiming that markets can protect biodiversity. biodiversity markets are not. an entirely new invention there are other types of markets with part of nature that we can look to to see how they function and who wins and who loses when those markets are put in place delegates from around the world gathered here by the hundreds to discuss climate change and its consequences global warming will be far more prominent in japan in december one thousand nine
hundred seven a majority of countries signed the kyoto protocol and they accepted the risks by climate change and committed themselves to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions one leading theory is that it's cost when carbon dioxide and other manmade gases are released into the air and trap heat much like a greenhouse science was telling us that we had a problem with carbon emissions in the atmosphere and we were starting to figure out the ways to solve those problems and of course forests planting forests maintaining forests and landscapes sustainable agriculture activity is what people agreed was the cheapest and most effective way to abate which is to pull that carbon out of the atmosphere it really doesn't matter where it comes from or where it comes out of so you can have a global trading platform for carbon that's perfect and terms of a global community working. to put in place market mechanisms to reduce the amount
of carbon in the atmosphere. the treaty set a global emissions limit which could not be exceeded. each industrialised nation signed the treaty received a carbon quota these credits and then distributed to the policing industries his company a doesn't use all of its carbon credits they can then sell them to company b. which is exceeded its quota. another possibility is for company b. to invest in clean energy sources in a less industrialized nation. what we're trying to do there is essentially destroyed people to take carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere and stabilize the plant which we're giving them a financial incentive to do that and the offset system which for example allows for offsets because you're for those forests is a way of rewarding. people for providing more natural capital. in syria thousands have disappeared without
a trace. forcibly taken from their family right into the most terrible thing to serve just to be detained this has been the invisible weapon of the syrian dictatorship through the other some tartars a call to confront brother to god and continue to be sure really and to the new culture. the disappeared of syria but this time on al-jazeera. the nature just news as it breaks it's estimated ten million children of school age are still roaming the streets of baghdad with detailed coverage children what i'm off base and number of serious problems from chronic child malnutrition through extreme poverty from around the world should one is last us lawsuit in two thousand and thirteen by their need spent more than twenty billion dollars in legal fees.
paid the scene for us where they're on line what is american sign in yemen that peace is always possible but it never happens not because the situation is complicated but because no one cares or if you join us on sect there are people that there are choosing between buying medication eating base is a dialogue i want to get in one more comment because this is someone who's an activist and just posted a story join the global conversation at this time on al-jazeera. hello again i'm fully back to go with the headlines on al-jazeera donald trump has lashed out of the probe into alleged links between russia and his twenty sixteen election campaign it follows reports that fired f.b.i. official andrew mccabe kept memos on his interactions with the u.s.
president and that those documents and now with the special counsel leading the investigation the polls open in russia's capital moscow for the presidential election these are live pictures from a polling station there as a country in the world russia spans eleven time zones which means voters in many areas have been casting ballots for hours it's widely expected that president vladimir putin will win a fourth term in office u.k. prime minister to resign may says she's considering the next steps after moscow announced it would expel twenty three british diplomats it's in response to the same number of russian diplomats being ordered to leave the u.k. britain has accused the kremlin of being behind the poisoning of a former russian spy and his daughter in syria thousands of people are fleeing a freeney in the north as circus forces for pad to begin their advance inside the city it's the latest phase in a two month offensive to push on kurdish fighters home to recon says terrorists in
southern syria meanwhile near the capital damascus thousands have left rebel held areas in eastern guta over the past day more than one hundred people have been killed in strikes by government and russian forces in the last forty eight hours if captured two more towns in a now in control of eighty percent of eastern go top leaders of sofie say asian nations say they have grave concerns about escalating tensions on the korean peninsula the bronx releases statement as easy and summit wraps up in sydney it says pyongyang's weapons programs threaten global security australia is hosting the two day summit for the first time despite not being part of the ten nation block. we look good out joint commitment to respond strongly and resolutely in the face of the grave concerns we share about north korea's reckless and the legal nuclear missile programs. and sure lancaster president has signed an order to lift a state of emergency
a nationwide curfew was imposed twelve days ago following unrest between sinhalese and muslim communities crowd set fire to muslim on businesses and a mosque during riots fighting the pirates continues next. kiyo to put in place market mechanisms to reduce the amount of carbon in the atmosphere. the treaty set a global emissions limit which could not be exceeded. each industrialized nation that signed the treaty received a carbon quota these credits are then distributed to the polluting industries his company a doesn't use all of its carbon credits he can then sell them to company b. which is exceeded its quota. another possibility is for company b. to invest in clean energy sources in a less industrialized nation. that's
why western companies began investing in protecting nature planting forests in developing nations. from small businesses to huge multinationals such as microsoft disney air france or even the giants of the oil industry. uganda has attracted some of these carbon investments. to get a podium standing on two of carbon that they have the need to measure the trees. make damage as heights and then you get those for abuse and feed them to the formula to get the carbon i want does that put humph. these men work in
a profession that did not exist before the signing of the kyoto protocol on climate change. their carbon hunter's i'd do is twenty point six. percent one point six. five point zero zero. eighteen point one. five point four each ton of c o two stored in the trees equals one carbon credit credits which the german company global woods' office to the international market on than it is in the last one odds are money and so if you had still trying it here come under think also it's at the heart of using sonar. coinstar force up talk compounds young on the i'm active on there now fighting by part that's what lies in us asking oceans for. carbon hunting continues to be
a promising source of future wealth for those first pioneering investors but can these young trees save the climate can they absorb the pollution from western countries and compensate for the over consumption of not krystle says it's in any case it's the main solution offered by international politics and the markets to protect the planet for the developed nations pay to have trees planted rather than trying to change their ways of being from thousand hectare flesh of the rivers one of the funds gonna be in the future i mean you want tong cornstarch on dust and crashed the entering a young sea once by the in britain or i'm not thousand lloyds in i mean you are in the. you know the thing is that you look at the building and the colors from up in . it isn't easy to compress is still to his task. but.
to the kind of bono to put this in we did in a little better than i am boesky. up so to be in the bank at the only love i think . we really stated this and when we became alarmed because the numbers weren't bad enough. and it was just a false mechanism that was being set up that allows the polluters of the north to continue to expand the combustion of fossil fuels. but on this open. to what i need to put out in. front of. you had to me on wow. this is any there are. a fever and out of that event he did
a month or so no fever and out of no getting up to seventy and no one was in a school says he would have a ticket to get even the slightest. but you would you want to see longer for. one you started to evaluate what. budget your god got up to bring that to get. them talking what i don't mean i think that that touches you my child from this into. your. in the past this plantation land was used often illegally by the villages but in such a poor country these people grew just enough to eat or to sell at market or to feed their cattle but everything changed with the arrival of global wood. vacances for forest security manager the jobs are to ensure that a forest plantation stays free of damage caused by illegal grazing abilities and
qualifications trained in policing or army skills including martial arts. from. well missed some. of the mention food. systems i'm talking about we started to use our trees are for specially in the global south in developing countries in the backyard of indigenous peoples who are brothers and sisters to use it as far as this big carbon market skiing.
how should land be used to live on and grow food water we plant trees. in order to protect the forests in various locations in africa the villages have been expelled and their homes burned to the ground. in honduras dozens of farmers have already died protesting against the sorts of expulsions. how can trees be worth more than people. are people who are literally dying we are dying it is a form of of of genocide it is a form of genocide against our people. but for now nothing can stop the charge of the raging bull of wall street. it has barely a second fought for who it tramples underfoot when it finds new sectors in which to
make money. i get them in a classroom kill again be aired them in essence of the few goes knowing that at the innocence of the gallows. but a bit of the biota of them it. is i guess. a civil case it was as if you go by this mess. if you look at. this booklet he will put us as he says that he would they use speculation as as if it were a bad word. i don't necessarily see speculation is always a bad thing. basically what speculation is is people taking risks and hopefully the people who are taking the risks can assume the risks if they don't pan out already we've seen millions of dollars being invested in projects that protect
forests why because people are hoping that they will be able to make money selling carbon credits in the future they're not making money now most of them are not making money now they're speculating. during my lifetime we've had plenty of stock market crashes so could these environmental markets be liable for crashes of the same sort. in fact we've actually thought of least recently. because the price of carbon on the markets has collapsed from around thirty dollars a tonne to less than three how can we entrust our future to a market that sometimes recognizes the value of nature and sometimes doesn't. the bank of america merrill lynch and the world bank have announced a plan to offer world bank green bonds to. major banks and businesses have offered green bones a monetary product invented by the world bank. and they have already issued tens of
billions of dollars worth of bonds in order they say to redirect finance to serve the environment. what is the guarantee that this so-called green finance will benefit the planet. and. the likelihood that. traders. will be developing the hardware and software of this new market in a way that benefits them rather than benefits nature will be to say. as was the case in the financial crisis two thousand and eight two thousand and. these financial derivatives financial products that were being traded very rapidly were not helping house owners to safely finance their home now they were
developed and use. to increase the profits that bax could make. this is where the financial crisis started the banks played on the dream of owning your own home in the usa they used the promise of the solution to modest households with precarious finances. once the families were no longer able to repay their loans the house of cards collapsed leading to the subprime crisis that made millions of americans homeless. the world tipped into a social crisis. where we've seen the consequences of financialization we've seen the collapse of wall street we are witnessing around the world this hungry money which is only looking at how to make the next profit devastating economies devastating ecosystems
devastating the planet planet and for them to say that the reason. the planet has been destroyed is because there wasn't a price all we have to do is a map wherever there was a price the minerals have been mined. the earth has been really the devil when it was reverence and respect nature stands in her integrity the evidence is very very clear price has lifted aggravation and destruction pricing and financialization is a disease that we have to overcome it's like a cancer on this planet and in the human mind. the foot what is the connection between junk bonds speculators and houses and forests insects and around your tans. in the past when people wanted to buy
a property they went to their bank to ask for a loan. the bank would assess their ability to repay the loan the financial crisis made everyone realize that loans were no longer just the domain of banks in fact household debts are transformed into securities by investors then split up a mixed in with other debts to create derivatives more less risky therefore more less profitable and finally put on the financial markets one day too many homeowners were unable to continue paying back their debts triggering a flood of bankruptcies the world then discovered that some investors that speculated on the inability of homeowners to repay their loans. it's not that big a stretch of an imagination to use the same logic of dividing up the biodiversity credits and dividing up biodiversity innocence and saying
you can now speculate on. the future date of extinction of that species. westie to be the pope was your and just don't use it as you need proof it did loopy first some pretty clear to the system to put you didn't even some people to destroy those who presently it is a space to preserve it is a step. mostly s.-t. o.-p. and completely destroyed homes then few nasty and tricky to damage domestically produced he says it expects you to fess disparate to the space. city to that good over the long time it don't yet max she said when this king of pop the best you look jeans. could indeed this was your that was who it was showed you these were
still to be toads question next door to the opium bust dose the net that you did you see proving that it was just doesn't want to mind a fat person you want to not perceive and ask because you don't see of that quantity of land the discussion in this space the purpose. yes to cure is ations are sometimes bad and they lead to the financial debacle those are bad securitizations but securitizations also can be very very good doesn't mean there should be no securitizations that means we must work harder just because there's a chance of something going wrong or just because there's a chance that someone might not like it should we stop and that do it i think that would be a foolhardy mistake. but if things were to go wrong with the consequences be this time around is there a level of acceptable risk or investment funds are already proposing species
portfolios. you could choose fifty orangutan thirty fly all forty locus credits. the amazon rain forest is already listed on the world's first green stock exchange it's playing god it's pretending to play god and when we find out and when those who promote the concept find out that even today they can't play god the damage will be done for me these fears are motivated fears and when they are there are those who actually wanted to trade nature as they would love to have the ability to buy and sell species as you say well that's too bad because that's not our job our job is to ensure that value is appreciated recognized internalised there are those who are politically elice pause towards any form of capital being recognized and for them
it's a religion they will fight against anything that uses the word economics of capital . some people will say well but the this is not a conspiracy this is not going to happen this is not the purpose of nature accounting we don't want that but how will they prevent this kind of development once the methodologies are there to start speculating and to start trading biodiversity you provide strawman's. and the use of those instruments will be out of your hands. at stake is our future on the planet can we really mortgage that out and place it on the financial markets. lots of banks have committed to protecting species for just fifty years just enough time to make a profit yet just a speck of dust as far as the earth is concerned. you see release see. do.
it didn't it you. don't. push so of it when i push to move financier good energy. twenty gets if me. you pretty cheek lupul that we are and you value it could make the most measurably to put his or to cause some of the bad developes be creative but to make a nice and keep better mentor said value could mean end up with the twenty. loaner form of the sallies days. and be. done this in america can move them into. the. other like
a defeat me they see there. but as it. is. it was a bot well if. you saw your job. and report that's your. goodbye ms you're just less than a month or so i perceive an. account we have been able to get only pretty well now most of the settlements if you say could you. do your. research could if you suffer more control you you for to preserve it up it. it will also be gathered together to do the most sensitive. we need to learn to get out of the valuation on the market which is only price but everything
has a price and nothing has value to everything of nature having value and not being measured . in price and finding other ways for humanity as humanity for most of its history . has done it has not related to nature that leaps through price. the world of finance toyed with the homes and households of america sparking a crisis around the wild. only a handful of experts foresaw the danger of the mechanisms we engender now we all know. the same recipes are applied but this time the toy isn't a child. is it a good idea to leave the planet in that sense.
hello there more rain is pushing across the middle east at the moment you can see very clearly on the satellite picture this huge area of white cloud here working its way through parts of iran and into parts of afghanistan more cloud here during the day on sunday and a fair few outbreaks of rain to that gradually retreating eastwards as we head into monday so still a few showers here not stretching all the way out but you do kathak stand behind that system there's only a small break for the next one kicking up a lot of dust not a great deal of wet weather to it as it works its way process parts of iraq and then there's a third system that's making its way through turkey wet and windy here particularly in the west the further towards the south we've seen a few spots of rain here in doha but as we head through into sunday the winds are feeding down from the northwest so that will just bring in some flight lead less hot air so twenty eight or twenty nine degrees where the maximum temperature we're expecting here over the next couple of days further south for since a lot of thirty degrees will be our maximum as we head down towards
a southern parts of africa and here we've been watching a tropical cyclone that's been his to madagascar has gradually now working away down towards the south but there's still quite a few showers lingering behind it particularly for the northern parts of the island further west there's lots of dry weather to be found here but not in the northern parts farm up for some of us here is still looking pretty wet. with. in syria thousands have disappeared without a trace. forcibly taken from their families where the most terrible thing though syria is to be. this has been the invisible weapon of the syrian dictatorship with other mothers sometimes are thought to be better to die there and continue to be sure really didn't torture. the disappeared of syria but this time on al-jazeera.
