the risk of the rain forests disappearing altogether. the risk is very very present because there are many studies said studies which point out that we we exceeded that say 20 to 25 percent or deforest in the whole b.c.s. going to mean square kilometers we have already the forest will mean a square along the 1517 percent so we see the nets t.v. points more of the elephant portaloo deja vue and will turn into the grid at someone and fires increase the winner ability of the forests so as we see prior's increasing their loss all the risk of the us won't force these are purely because much much higher so ironically as as the forest is recedes because of deforestation the chances of it burning increase and what other effects
10:05 pm
on brazil on a day the world's climate does this deforestation have. tropical forests all for us and the planet they remove 30 percent of the carbon dioxide human activities emits into the atmosphere so it's very important the system service truck of course do that as well and also talk of forests or a large amount of carbon so if we lose the eminent force even if we was beseeched percent of the forests the probability of reaching that target carries a quart becomes much more much more difficult the d.c. 3 percent of the us on we released $200.00 didn't cause of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere so we've also to fight it climate crisis we need to maintain truckle forests and also we need to restore a lot of trouble forests it's been said that the very way to persuade. of anything
10:06 pm
is to is to show him that it is in his own interests it is in brazil's that interest is is something of a climate skeptic or indeed denying our changes to his country is a climates already visible because of the forestation. oh yes the climate in the amazon is changing we are seen that the length of the dry season is that i wasn't using increasing dangerously particularly easy areas before that in the last 3040 years the length of the drugs even has increased by 2025 days this is really we're getting very close to this point. by almost bernie bernie the forests generates incredible amounts of pollutants that travel thousands of kilometers affecting the health of means of
10:07 pm
people we stop america so we're already seeing signs of this climate change that might be very very dangerous for men for the maintenance of the forests face fire seems so big that it seems that almost impossible to put them out the president is talking about sending in the army as it's not a sensible move well at this point it's a desperate move but the only only one possible because he's too lyrical speech for several months effect for throughout his political career 27 years as a hoss member is heavy always debt it's not important to conserve the forests we should move on to be in india as lead soul that speech really propel these criminals and yet in the amazon to push the forestation so they could

us through the coming days welcome go so emmanuel mccraw and get a magical say they want the brazil fires on the g 7 agenda i can this meeting actually do anything to address this crisis feel the french president has already said a number of bullet points a number of suggestions you'd like to discuss with the other leaders of some of the richest and the most influential nations in the world who are coming here for this g. 7 meeting in beer it's how he wants to resolve that crisis one steamy has in mind is the reforestation program that could be financed by some of these wealthiest nations but also what is on his mind is putting more pressure on brazil and in that respect you also have to see this idea that he could block the free trade deal that brussels recently hammered out with these so-called markers through estates of which brazil is a part and what you have to understand here is that if one european nation does not
10:10 pm
rectify that deal that has in principle been a greet it means the whole deal is that. the main issue of this weekend's g. 7 was supposed to be fighting inequality oxfam is saying that the climate crisis compounds inequality so how will leaders be trying to get to grips with that. now the french president has as if you want as a precaution seeing that donald trump walked away from the final declaration on the last 7 meeting in canada has skipped that final declaration this communique as it's called here and still he wants to reach a tangible results and so he has invited african nations leaders from egypt and book enough fossil will be here he has put a number of thousands of sensible topics on the list how africa is dealing with women female entropy nurse in particular how could they be given more credits all
10:11 pm
sorts of things including the environment he'd like to discuss these things in order to move things forward what you can't help but notice is of course the fact that by broadening the agenda it really makes clear that the g 7 is no longer a forum where the world's problems can be solved because the different president broadens this agenda really so that some results comes out of this meeting seeing that the 7 leaders do disagree on so many things now they have the host city beer it sets a seaside town quite brisk quite rich white affluent jason and james summits have been quite violent in the past how well prepared is the city. extremely a well prepared i went through a walk through the town which is practically a ghost town people have not been allowed in the residents have been given

10:17 pm
mediterranean route. and for we will not just stand by and watch while people drown who could have been held and who need to be rescued. for the passengers on the ocean viking the nightmare is over for the time being but the drama of the rescue at sea is not over in the mean time a solution still has to be found for each individual ship. refugees from bangladesh are refusing to return to me or u.n. monitors that attempt to overturn. about 300 families filed on thursday when no one showed up to go back the fear of return persists after more than 700000 ranger fled a brutal army crackdown in manama 2 years ago 1st as attempted repatriation was actually the 2nd time the un has tried to return refugees 100 deal between bangladesh and the government and now the religious fears are perhaps best articulated and what one of them told t.w.

giraffe populations have been given more protections in an effort to hold that dramatic population decline the convention on international trade in endangered species species lost sight of us has agreed to regulate the buying and setting of giraffes and that body parts the number of these gentle creatures from africa has shrunk from more than 160000 the just under 100000 in just 70 years. to roughs their base majestic and lovable perhaps even most with a one. in fact such idiosyncrasies make it easy for researches to recognise their old buddies. to be in a really wild close and to have such a close connection with individual wild animals that you might be looking at them from one side and you already know when they turn around what you see on the other side just like knowing a friend. and indeed
