straw or left over from their summer rice harvests to make room for their winter crops the practice is a major contributor to north india severe winter air quality issues and last year pollution levels in new delhi rose to nearly thirty times higher than world health organization standards suranne the banjo has been farming in the district of party for fifteen years. but last year's pollution crisis led him to rethink his farming practices. every year we used to burn the straw and it had a negative impact on the environment and now the government has put a restriction against this practice and some of us have tried to find a solution for it we want to protect the environment which i feel surrender solution is a chopping machine which he and another farmer invested around two and a half thousand euros in earlier this year that allows them to remove straw easily and put it back in their fields to help with their winter crops. about thirty five

kilometers away another alternative to crop burning is in effect straw from nearby farms is chopped up at this local power plant so it can be used as fuel to create electricity. the plant uses contractors to collect straw from fields with machines called bayless but there are limitations to how many farms they can cover in such a short window of time many of these farmers are already in severe debt. and until they get the assistance they need they say there's no choice but to set their fields alight. someone else should solve this problem the government should lift the straw themselves or pay as compensation to clear the field we're fed up with the situation. farmers know the environmental consequences of crop burning but as long as it remains the cheapest way for them to clear their fields it will be a long time before more buy into alternative solutions.

concerns about the economy in catalonia are growing in the wake of the region's bid for independence tourism has slumped and the ongoing political stalemate is taking its toll. what would you like patrick smith works as a tourist guide just five people have signed up to his tour of the famous a crowd after me. not a good sign considering the church lies at the heart of barcelona's tourist trail. we're seeing more cancellations and we're almost twenty five percent down since october people are afraid. with no official figures available yet it's too early to know exactly how big an effect a political crisis is having on tourism overall but anecdotal reports suggest the problem is accused restaurant owner carlos man ressa has noticed a significant drop in clientele since september. we're

a risk of the consequences being overblown and anecdotal evidence being used to inspire fear among the think on the tourism is a popular of both the spanish and catalan economy i mean people use information to overstate the consequences as a kind of a warning to the castle and government while industry insiders await the exact figures it seems hard to dispute that spain's political crisis is hurting tourism that's especially worrying for people like patrick smith whose livelihoods depend on a one in five castilians work in the tourism industry. and our last report takes us to russia this week saw the return of moscow st peter and paul cathedral to the country's lutheran church under stalin protestant lutheran churches have been closed along with many belonging to the majority russian orthodox faith. an air of celebration at

soviet union many churches were repurposed from nine hundred thirty seven this cathedral was used as a movie theater and a film studio by then all lutheran churches across the country had been closed and many of their pastors arrested and shot here at video cemetery and long known as the city's german cemetery the scars of that persecution are still tangible many gravestones here were neglected and destroyed after the second world war the lutheran community struggled with the additional stigma of its german origins often associated with the nazi enemy. the return of our church to some extent restores historical justice historical truth but only partially i hope that this will just be the beginning of a new stage in the development of our country community. the number of churches that were destroyed and can no longer be returned that's a crime of course the fact that the cathedral is being returned to us now is good
