differences may be at the moment egypt's energy crisis rate emerging in each and the results of what happens right now could be felt generational. where with r.t. and still ahead in the program a yellow card for ukraine so you countries threatening to boycott the twenty twelve football championship that have been edged mistreatment of the country's jailed i mean. we report on how fracking extraction of natural gas. has caused outrage in britain and the fears about its destructive impact on the environment. here as secretary of state hillary clinton is in beijing for a wide ranging strategic talks with china visit coming up next trimming delicate time in relations between the two countries beijing wants an apology from washington after accusing it of meddling in its internal affairs of the u.s.
embassy harbored a chinese dissident activist china is also irritated every u.s. military buildup in asia pacific region well ron unz publisher of american conservative magazine says u.s. leaders don't realize washington is actually in a weak position at this stage. obviously the chinese are not very happy at those developments and i think inside to some extent america's actions are much more provocative than they might be but from another perspective the chinese economy is growing in her normal space and the american economy is not so it's perfectly rational for the chinese leaders to in effect except these to print papers on america's side and just realize that another five or ten years the chinese position will be enormously stronger relative to america than it is today given their very strong economic position right now and the vast amount of dependence america has in selling its debt to the chinese from
a rational point in hating america is obviously in a weak position for that reason but a lot of american leaders seem to not recognize those realities or is still thinking that america is in a position it was ten or fifteen or twenty years ago the enormously dominant world superpower and that just is not the case anymore. john knows better to set up his own institute in china to study social economic developments there so as the world has yet to see a major standoff between washington and beijing it's a taste of our interview with him which you can see in full in about twenty five minutes time. they have been building their military but still you know the u.s. has a military that equal all the other realtors of the world put together and i've heard of we've heard a lot of talk about multi dollar world but last century was over. this would be very simple minded about. the u.s. and china the. world's going to be dominated by
a bipolar. china and the us and people make countries and calibrate their their actions against what they perceive will be the responsible u.s. and or china. moscow is warning it could make a preemptive strike against nato is anti missile defense shield plan for europe if the u.s. persists in going ahead ignoring the kremlin's opposition russia's military chiefs telling concerns about the planet an international conference in moscow representatives from more than fifty nations and it's in a way brings us the details. missile defense has been in a deadlock for some time now between the us russia and nato and that sentiment was reiterated by russian officials up this summit that that deadlock needs to be resolved or russia will take responsive measures we've heard talk of preemptive
strikes are pretty harsh rhetoric coming from russia that's because according to officials the lack of response that we've seen to their concerns by the u.s. and nato missile deployments really in eastern europe is no longer a plan it's well underway poland romania even as far as turkey and russia sees this as a major threat to their national security what russian officials are looking to demonstrate today is first of all information that they that they've put together through research that proves first of all that it broke states according to the u.s. and nato which they say the system is against like iran and north korea don't have the capabilities to reach europe so there's a lot of questions surrounding the goals of this system so post russia's border they also want to demonstrate through a computer model how in fact the system does pose a threat to russia's national security in terms of details and are hoping that they will take the step in trying to convince both the u.s.
and nato how much of a concern this is to russian sides and how much they need some kind of response if they're going to make any kind of headway washington continues to stress that this deployment is no way meant more to directed against russia and this is something quite frankly that russia just isn't part of what they want to see and have been demanding are written legally binding guarantees that this is a defense system is not directed towards russia especially so close to its border because that said no major breakthroughs are expected it's not years let's not forget that open mike in south korea when president obama told me better to hang in there that compromises should come after the election in the selection of your forces in many countries the slope what is. seems like we're going to hear from officials as his two day summit wraps up is that there needs to be baby steps that this is a difficult issue both sides are going to push to the u.n. to defend their interests. case in a way that when america's military web now spans the world with many eight hundred

where the technique is causing shock waves amongst residents near drilling sites who claim they haven't been informed of the potentially disastrous environmental impact. of an experience. it triggers earthquakes and could poison water supplies but fracking just got the green light in the u.k. a government study says the controversial gas extraction technique be safe despite causing two tremors in the popular coastal resort of blackpool last year environmentalist sphere a smokescreen hiding the far more dangerous side effect of large scale deadly pollution what it fails to address is the fact that quakes and seismicity you know these issues are actually a new very small fraction of the other associated problems with fracking so the report doesn't really do justice to any other aspects soltan is the department of energy climate change to regulating this hydraulic fracturing or fracking extracts methane gas from underground millions of gallons of water and chemicals including
hydrochloric acid pumped in two or three kilometer deep well that high pressure when the rock cracks gas escapes but so too can deadly toxins and radiation previously locked in the ground this site is just sixty kilometers south of london is one of many the government intends to drill and the people who live here have had no say permission is already been given for fracking to start and that's the hole that will be pumped with water at one thousand meters it's not shallower than most of the fracking sites which means the risks of tremors a much higher but so too the chances of toxic chemicals seeping into the water supply and that's the worry for residents who live nearby the fact that fracking could take place four miles from my home makes me feel very angry very disillusioned very disappointed in our legislators to things absolutely exasperated that they can even countenance sanctioning because it is an eco sidle technology
it's short term it's short sighted halfway between the capital and the coast bulk i'm surrounded by a network of reservoirs the provide water to much of england's densely populated south. east the fear is the toxic cocktail left by fracking will pollute supplies only a quarter of the carcinogenic chemicals pumped in actually come out again fracking has already begun america these online videos show what happens if the well casing splits taps flaming after gas leaked into the water system but britain insists it's a cleaner alternative to cold local campaigners are far from convinced we really need to be looking at how we're going to move away from fossil fuels and what's happening at the moment is that the government is diverting its attention and its resources towards methods of energy such as nuclear and fracking that don't increase resilience and don't move as a way to reduce close. impact fracking is banned in france and bold garia because

twenty two also become a victim of political pressure from the european union on ukraine the ukrainian leadership reacted to all these statements coming from the european union but saying that this kind of rhetoric puts the countries back in the cold war and in fact there may be right in some sense because the one of the vivid examples of a political boy called during a sporting championship sporting event was in one thousand nine hundred eighty one sixty countries refused to come to moscow for the olympic games there and then the soviet union four years later replied by not sending fourteen countries fourteen republics of the soviet union to the olympic games in los angeles certainly the situation is very very tense for ukraine and for keven particular now. but let's take a look at him other news now around the world this hour in libya a new law getting the public leaving mug have been brought in by the ruling national transitional council punishment could be is about is life in prison for offenses deemed as damaging to the state censorship also prohibits indorsing the

reach speeds of close to three hundred kilometers. there you have it zipping which is a business that's not with what if you go business out very high carol and not as impressive pictures i have to say but i am talking about the markets who have up and down movements all along pretty much have to disappoint in the unemployment rate figures which have reach record high now in the euro zone to work spect in europe to be trading and negative territory today but it's in fact the complete opposite picture as you can see both the footsie and the facts are added with a dioxin faget in the over a wong a percent this hour not drug makers and banks are leading the gains and investors are also awaiting a key interest rate decision by the european central bank i will have more on that later as soon as that decision is made now moving on to russia and here
surprisingly the markets have made a u. turn em back into negative territory both the arts yes and the mindsets losing every round half a percent to give or take and what we know there is that investors basically have been pretty much in celebrates or your mood because of the public holidays many of them are still on holiday but this is the picture we're seeing right now let's take a look at the main movers all and the my six figures that we see in there are pretty much related to earnings reports for the first quarter when it comes to power generator and you know that in the first drop its net profit dropped by almost forty percent when it comes to flying carrier air flow and some disappointing results there as well its first quarter and the profit almost halt compared to last year and one of russia's the largest oil companies sort of witness to gas which is a mouthful to pronounce i have to say there what we saw was that reported a loss over how the hundred and sixty dollars for the first quarter and all these
three companies post the results according to russian accounting standards now moving on to exchanged. the euro is still losing against the dollar when it comes to the ruble was soon pretty much more or less the same figures it's moves in against a both the major currencies this thursday. japanese markets are on the whole they're close there because of a public holiday so we are focusing on the hang signs of a banks are leaving that the clients and investors are pretty much reactance and disappointments of jobs that are coming out from europe and the u.s. because in the u.s. we saw not only that factory orders the quiet but also there was a negative or jobs reports as well now if we take a look at the u.s. we see that it's the most the mix performance on was that of course the markets are closed right now so we're seeing the picture at closing time as i said fact during your orders and also we're expecting this friday jobs reports that come out that would sell april's performance but many analysts say given the negative data that
we received so far it will also be a disappointing a result there as well now and other news of russia's food retail market has become the biggest in europe with almost a fourteen percent growth last year it has overtaken france and almost a third of the increase was the result of inflation pushing total sales so it seems hundred and thirty seven a billion dollars however per capita spending on food in russia was one hundred forty dollars a month which is the still half of what the average french consumer spends. and that's what i have for you this hour ok thanks for that speech against it. coming right up to recap of our top stories our special interview stay with us for that.
