12:01 pm
yemen that killed at least fourteen civilians. twenty seven global news from the studios of. monday evening at seven here in the russian capital welcome to the program first for you the iraqi army has declared the most of the city of tal afar has been liberated from islamic state militants there's a long way to go before the city can return to anything like normal lives terrorists are still holed up in basements and underground tunnels under reports from that deadly surprises almost around every corner. then the islamiya by the islamic state will remain you'll find graffiti like that plastered in there with the bridges and buildings inside of frog iraq he sent his haven't yet gotten around to covering them up what with being busy fighting
12:02 pm
a day off to the victory was announced here and tired of fighting still hasn't died down isis hygiene throughout the city and why are there any geographic areas or districts entire left they're hiding in basements and buildings and timers underneath the city waiting to ambush patrolling iraqi soldiers. was. one lawyer was welcome to it. well i says has been beaten in tal afar they're made sure to leave behind plenty of surprises booby traps every red intel a fog they have ten the city into a sap as nightmare and come in here we were moved multiple times not to touch anything no matter how innocent it might seem for we knew behind these. could
12:03 pm
be explosives booby traps behind the times even in the right switches. i would be one where officers went into a house and sat on a sofa exploded along with the house they had booby trapped the sofa another example they were explosive to light switches when you turn on their lights the house explodes they were bombs into refrigerators and even the door handles when you open the door and explodes. i've just come back from telefon you can didn't lie down on the bed without cyprus check and first drop bombs and wires everywhere we don't touch anything. i will do all we can to disarm everything but there is only so much we can do some houses will have to be destroyed. this bomb was intended for does but the planes and helicopters destroyed the roads and i still couldn't get the car bomb out our engineers found it and dismantled it if it had been used it
12:04 pm
would have done as great damage they disarm the explosive canisters and detonated them in a controlled explosion but it's strange isis folded almost too quickly. there is evidence that around four hundred families of isis fighters were allowed to leave on august twenty fifth in an unspecified direction the rumor among iraqi troops is that as many as two thousand isis fighters have been given safe passage out of tal afar into syria again this is a rumor and we conned confirm it but it would explain the an expectedly easy fight iraqi troops wouldn't let us into the center of telephone thing would still far too
12:05 pm
dangerous but having spent some time here in the suburbs we haven't seen a single civilian most of them ran when the opportunity presented itself as the battle began braving the must in the desert in order to get away the fear of the iraqi ministry in the u.s. led to release and brits to their might file a fraud of the three and come back a question of how much of tal afar there be left to come back to more eid guys dia . from talent iraq. to syria now where government forces have started an offensive to liberate another. stronghold pierrots all the pictures you can see behind me that the latest we've got of as strikes on terrorist positions that correspond to remind culture of it is across the details for us early days but a lot riding on this any results from the operation as yet well yes russian defense ministry of reports on another successful operation that is meant to bring peace to
12:06 pm
seriousness possible here we can see the latest video which was released by the russian military where following six successful offensive by the syrian army along with the help of russian air space forces are still militants right now have no where it's a retreat and a regroup in there as zoar and that's why they brought heavy equipment including armored vehicles tanks set up various artillery positions so russian the defense ministry said that overnight and all through monday they have russian airplanes at those positions that is several tanks so those armored vehicles and of course the artillery positions as well now this way the syrian army were able to continue their offensive. in the hopes to block it of course the important. there is or will first of all it's the largest city in eastern syria and it's been
12:07 pm
under siege since the year twenty fourteen and over one hundred thousand civilians are still trapped in the city at the moment that also happens that there is or is the final frontier international of terrorism in the country so a victory there would hopefully. bring peace to the war torn country. it's not going to be easy is it but let's hope that some good can come of it will keep water on it for now though remind cost of thanks for that update. thanks to almost a fifth of people in germany have said that they would not welcome having muslim or refugee neighbors according to a recent study has the country continues to try to integrate an influx of migrants a survey revealed that ninety percent of germans were against the idea chancellor merkel's promoted an open door policy since the beginning of the refugee crisis but has occasionally backtracked on the issue or europe correspondent peter all of
12:08 pm
a looks at how integration might influence voters in next month's german election. angle of merkel currently sits around sixteen to seventeen points clear in the polls ahead of elections that are in well just under one month's time here in germany when she was talking in a recent interview about the twenty fifteen refugee crisis well she said that if she could go back in time to that point she wouldn't change a thing in the past the german chancellor has spoken differently on this issue we didn't embrace the problem in an appropriate week and also girls who are protecting the borders of the area in previous times those statements have helped or at least been part of giving her a kick in the polls well something she clearly doesn't need out the moment in response her main challenger barton schultz of the social democratic party here in germany also of course remember the former president of the european parliament well he described the german chancellor is out of touch and aloof however that is
12:09 pm
and seemingly pulling him back on lead at the moment but of course we also can't have an election in europe these days without russia getting a mention and this time it's come courtesy of hans your mouth and he's the head of the v.f.l. it's the same as say the f.b.i. in the united states or m i five in the united kingdom the internal intelligence service he said that russia has the potential to carry out sophisticated hacks that hell every day and went on to say that there's absolutely no evidence to suggest that this is in the pipeline at all that it's set to happen which leaves many questioning why he decided to give that interview in the first place but the situation we have at the moment is that with angela merkel so far out in front in the polls it does look like this is a german election whereby the interests of voters may take something of a back seat as the focus turns inwards towards what type of governments angle or
12:10 pm
merkel will be able to form and what type of coalition she will opt for when she ultimately returns as the german chancellor. staying in that part of the world being a top diplomat means your every word gets scrutinized and a lack of care has landed germany's foreign minister in an awkward situation online .
12:11 pm
the french president's about to start hosting a major migration summit the leaders from germany italy and spain of that along with counterparts from a number of african nations as well but as a manual mccrone tries to get them on the same page relations with another e.u. member seem to be souring. i think that all one statements are another error in the strategy of the country and the manifestation of how this country wants to position itself on the margin of europe's history present and future the state just today to isolate itself in the functioning progress of a few years and is not isolating it so easily and has not been isolated and it was it seems to me that president max grown carelessly follows media reports and doesn't know what's going on in our parts of europe still it happens sometimes. perhaps with crohn's are going comments result from lack of political experience which i can understand but i expect that he will make up for the shortcoming and will be more restraint in the future of dissatisfaction at home is also been looming over emanuel mccrone according to the latest poll this conducted for
12:12 pm
a french newspaper that's that half of those surveyed approve of his policies right now but at the same point his predecessors the likes of nicolas sarkozy of france while on doing much better by this point mr sarkozy sixty nine percent in france where a lot at this point he was even called mr unpopular but even he was a fifty four by this stage despite all that a government spokesman says these figures can be ignored will quote transform the country so we are some people in paris about the president's apparent fall from grace so it doesn't surprise me that what he's doing is making human popular nobody supports his proposal for extending working hours. the french people are too closed minded when it comes to changing benefit reform so it's not surprising that his ratings are forming. very rare for presidents popularity to increase so i'm not too surprised we need to give him time to get things done here on their actions so we need to live with that across labor reform programs become one of the main points
12:13 pm
of discontent leading to violent protests across the country is also commend criticism for slashing public spending and curbing the military budget and another hour dropped it when housing benefits will cut. and it is plummeting ratings it's believed mccrone has changed his communication strategy making it more open the editor in chief of belgium's the people magazine takes a closer look next at what's behind the people's dissatisfaction of across. he has come to the end of the spirit of grace maybe it's no surprise to anybody. french this find the. solution we'll show you right. straight polish prime minister said that this remark was out of. strike because what he said . what he said he may do so later he's going to try to press. criticize school. to praise something which is totally to much joke
12:14 pm
which make it say things are credible she said for example the french zero zero one two eighty four that they were referring to. on the way surviving against the old two young girls rescued offered as strike in yemen which kobold on a dozen people the details when we come back. coin saul's for trust it's a mathematical formula that solves for think about all the institutions in your life that require trust you trust people on the road are going to be not crashing into you you trust the good doctor is professional you trust the hospital is working in
12:15 pm
a trust third parties all day long bitcoin is the first trust international currency that doesn't require trust it just requires consensus to buy into every ten minutes the protocol and why would you not be buying into the protocol if you're getting fabulously wealthy or watching central banks collapse i like about it i mean wealth comes and goes and watching central banks crawl into their desk and pee themselves and cry that's what i like. hello again alleged saudi led coalition air strike in the yemeni capital killed at least fourteen people on friday the destruction brought down a whole apartment block but one girl managed to survive be warned though that some of the following images in the video we're about to show you might be upsetting to
12:16 pm

12:17 pm
are also blaming the saudi led government and demanding justice. can read about on they were just workers trying to make a living and they were targeted by warplane the yemeni people want to show their anger at this crime committed against them i said. to my sons were martyred by the saudi aggressors they were farmers they had nothing to do with the war i appealed to the international community and to the united nations to punish those who committed this. no one does not demand the international community and the united nations which is remaining silent find a solution for these disparate people. the saudi led coalition described the hotel bombing as a technical mistake a spokesman expressed regret of the collateral damage and offered condolences to the families of the victims yemeni political analyst but our international efforts failing and a diplomatic solution must be found for yemen internationally can isms are weak they're not capable they're not responsive responsive enough and very efficient to
12:18 pm
deal with this escalation on a day to day basis yemen comes way beyond the list of priorities when you when you talk it to compare it to other conflicts syria or libya then it's going to be a comprehensive political solution without a political solution we will be talking almost on a weekly basis and more and more civilians will be falling without a comprehensive solution that deal with the grievances from the local level i think fortunately this conflict on c.n.n. any time soon. i want to tell you about some news coming in from the u.s. state of texas a powerful blast has hit a building in the city of houston according to local media sources but as you can see from these pictures as well that have been shown online the incident occurred at a legal firms office in the downtown area to legal a building called lone star firefighters are busy trying to put out the blade at the moment no indication of any injuries at this point and of course there's no indication as to what might have caused that blast and fire that's still being
12:19 pm
investigated of course at the moment houston and the wider texas area's been devastated by hurricane harvey over the last few days tens of thousands in need of shelter so a lot going on in houston right now when more details come about what's happening in that particular building we'll let you know here on alt. next the u.s. is denying russian relatives access to a boy who lost both his parents near los angeles last week daniel but also a father is suspected of killing his mother and abducting the nine year old boy the father was later fatally shot by police following a manhunt of the boy holds dual u.s. russian citizenship and he's now safe in protective custody but his family can't speak to him like you at the at the no reply was provided to either the consulate to us or was the situation is becoming more complicated as the u.s. as an internal matter. american authorities have repeatedly blocked any attempts of the immediate relatives including daniel's uncle from contacting the boy without
12:20 pm
giving any clear explanation russian authorities say will continue attempts to establish contact between the boy and his relatives in compliance with his rights. i will protest in the u.s. city of berkeley in california descended into chaos after anti-fascist demonstrators broke through police barricades during a rally against hate and then clashed with right wing activist. prior to the unrest police had banned sticks masks and any potential weapons but dozens of anti fascist protesters broke those rules one left wing demonstrator attacked a photographer and others reportedly threatened people who were trying to film the

12:22 pm
have a right to demonstrate we've got a right to show that there are a million point four of us ignore them any time a group preaches the hatred that we've seen from the outright i think it's only human toe match that even if it's not the most mature reaction it's only human to match that with some kind of anger and aggression really want to stand for nonviolence who would take the side against people that speak for violence including politicians such as donald trump one thing that is widely present is the folks who call themselves and teapot some of them also would call themselves the black bloc people with masks over their faces are you know how many goggles are there here for a fight almost i mean they give that impression we've seen repeatedly from folks try to come into the crowd began you know begin spent sending out their message state making statements in support of doll trial out of the crowd going to circling up the police moving in and scuffles breaking out. a lot of. this is just one illustration of the ongoing division that continues to
12:23 pm

12:24 pm
a southern plantation during the civil war and reconstruction periods and it's acclaimed as one of the greatest love stories ever to make it to the silver screen . in memphis cinemas cancelation after thirty four years of showing it has fired up social media some incredulous that the film was dropped other stressing that art should be out of politics some tweets were accompanied with the hash tag how to daniel after the actress who played the housemate she became the first african-american to be nominated for and to win an academy award of the time the film was made the producer worked closely with rights groups to prevent accusations of racism jeffrey mark kleiman again believes people should be celebrating the achievements of the classic film not looking at why it might now be considered insensitive. it's kind of insane that they would claim this movie is insensitive
12:25 pm
when having mcdaniel is the first black person to win an oscar so that movie has very historical significance even just for that fact it's a it's a cinematic feat it progressed film forward both in terms of the art of filmmaking the art of storytelling and progressiveness i mean that a lot of people who claim this movie's insensitive. so much about identity politics they should be excited about the fact that hattie mcdaniel is an oscar winner because of this movie. israel's president has accused the united nations of discriminating against his country the u.n. secretary general antonio. is alive and well and vowed to do all he can to stamp it out the u.n. chief currently on a three day visit to israel and palestinian territories to discuss reviving the peace process is our middle east correspondent paula. it's his first since taking
12:26 pm
office back in january now he's already met with the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu netanyahu saying that there are a host of issues the two need to discuss and they'll do so in the coming days the secretary general will also be meeting with high ranking palestinian officials in the west bank and traveling to gaza now all of this comes against the backdrop as i say of a spike in tensions between israel and the united nations you have the israeli deputy foreign minister saying that israel can no longer tolerate and i'm quoting the united nations is full bias take a listen we are seeking a dramatic change in the way the u.n. treats israel it's time to place the issue squarely on the table and address it head on if the u.n. doesn't dress to each change its behavior it will lose both support and funding this war of words between israel and the united nations is nothing new it goes back quite some years and in fact if you ask most israelis they'll tell you that they believe that the international body is biased against them you have for example the united nations and i'm quoting calling on israel to stop imposing an apartheid
12:27 pm
regime on the palestinians you also have the united nations security council that voted unanimously urging israel to end with its settlement expansion project and of course it's still days in terms of what these meetings will yield but one thing is clear and that is that at this stage the relationship between israel the united nations is on edge. for now you know it's going to be here to keep you up to date on developments around the world in the coming out from a caller brought a good light.
12:28 pm
here's what people have been saying about rejecting the sixty's full on. the only show i go out of my way to lunch you know what it is that really packs a punch. is the john oliver of r t america is doing the same we are apparently better than blue. sea people you never heard of love back to the night president of the world bank pacers. sent us an email.
12:29 pm
with a post. just before. last time we chased. each one of them carrying twenty kilos of drugs. first offense. is the three we have all medical men they have this is. this is for me. it would be i don't know maybe don't. make or. break right. now well.
12:30 pm
we started working on the question of the euro before the euro was launched and we had such concerns about what we were preparing to do you know. obama. the laws the days of the old regime. criticism thank you all very much it's.
12:31 pm
an honor for me to be here to. pay tribute to a hero of freedom. milton friedman. et i arrived in italy in november two thousand and eleven to shoot a documentary the nation was at risk of default and under pressure of the european institutions the berlusconi government had just resigned in favor of mario monti a technician who would have avoided the forthcoming catastrophe it was the first time in a decade that i came back to the land where i was born here used a brilliant mind. to advance a moral vision. a vision of a society. where men and women are free. to choose italy had been downgraded by the rating agencies and they'd lost credibility in the eyes of international markets there was everywhere a climate of fear and uncertainty about the future. and freeman is showing
12:32 pm
is that when government attempts to substitute its own judgments. for the judgments of free people. the results are usually disastrous. the italian case with the debt out of control could have even caused a domino effect on the whole european economy not only don't seem to pin. what was going on in europe in contrast to the free markets invisible hand. which improves the lives of people big governments invisible foot. tramples on people's hopes and destroys surgery. said that's the word spread and austerity had entered into everyday speech but no
12:33 pm
one knew not what consequences the economic crisis would tell you be taken to the streets to join the general strike that's stretching throughout europe and still european politicians was shared with the crisis would be resolved soon applying effective economic recipes and structural reforms. after four years of austerity the economic conditions of the pigs are even worse but the european press continues to believe that corruption in indifference are the sources of our problems and at this point we deserve this crisis. chris for that. and. then that are bullied see. the.
12:34 pm
post in austin. and a lot of quizzical as a kid. sees the. local machine. that is sound the big key. engine. chip if you. live in that she. which the weaker economies are. working hard spendthrift. that's mostly complete nonsense greeks work. more. than germans do. in one thousand nine hundred two the my strict treaty was signed in the european union was formally born. but let's take a break because this story also talks about. that in that very same year found in the social cooperatives. on the of which she is now president in twenty four years
12:35 pm
colleagues and given back dignity to those who had just been released from mental hospitals schools prisons or simply from their homes they left with the family a few to colorado full of crazy people they drove around. town north of from under the eyes of the outraged locals and they got to change the face of their city a co-operative has dealt with more than five hundred people with disabilities and more than five thousand people took advantage of it serves a tenth of the population of mt to return today the likely base is that it would be shut down triggering a real social bump in the event yeah that's. a good. one hundred. percent say. with macroeconomics you can understand the limits and then with microeconomic you understand everything that happens inside of those living macro economic might put you in this role and then micro would be everything
12:36 pm
that happens inside the world playing. in the stuff. that that stuff. if you sat in one hundred dollars for the row to get some oh there's only ninety five there you've got a macro problem a structural problem five of those dark. she. now the microcode. psychologist will take five guards out and they are examined then they'll say ok they need more training we need structural reforms they need exercise exercise and trainer and teach you how to fight hard case bones and then they run the experiment again in the dark to get it sure enough the next time those dogs get. what they forget this is going to be just five other dogs that don't get bones
12:37 pm
because there's a macro problem it's good to have better dogs stronger darts faster darts but if the problem is to short bones to short. nothing the micro can do about. you is it really possible that there is such between the upper floors of economic power small everyday problems is it true that we are one hundred dogs in a room with only ninety five bones and who decides when the bones must be ninety five or one hundred. a day keep a z. u . c.
12:38 pm
k h. that is starting to. take into its very foundation t.j. you had a hundred fifty billion dollars today. and. also
12:39 pm
the other big question tonight the fate of the thousands of employees who work in the building. the u.s. financial crisis spread to europe in the form of a crisis and quickly turned into an economic crisis. so there's a lot of discussion about what's going to. it was never the strongest suit of the european union. the only way of imposing such highly. toxic policies of for three shifting the losses from the banks
12:40 pm
to the shoulders of the weakest stock spears of europe. whatever the next. maybe. because.
12:41 pm
it didn't unique. feel a. massive government intervention launched a new. economy creating jobs balance in social conflicts in protecting the weakest segments of the population this was called the new deal. there were family. and they're very good imo the new deal was inspired by the father of macro economics john maynard keynes argued the need for public intervention in the economy of the nation on the opposite side milton friedman yes that treatment of freedom and economic consumption of the
12:42 pm
bloodthirsty dictator pinochet theories remain the source of current economic policies of the past and anything we can do to keep down government spending is a good thing we should restrict it to those activities like defense which we really need to do. because it's a political decision is why in the past i've called it a crime against humanity because it's an act of decision a kind of walk they have run out of money the central bank discredits the costs are the limits of the amount they credit so let's see how money is created in the united states. what politicians do something to them. they put themselves on the line they did accept the reject. so when you want to be president. or somehow want to be. too good to be for us this is what them before three of them or can't be good.
12:43 pm
interested always in the waters in the. big coin solves for trust it's a mathematical formula that solves for trust think about all the institutions in your life there acquire trust you trust people on the road are going to be not crashing. doctors professional you trust the hospital is working in a trust third parties all day long point is the first international currency that doesn't require trust it just requires consensus. every ten minutes the protocol why would you not be buying into the protocol if you're getting fabulously wealthy or watching central banks collapse like. watching central banks crawl into their pea themselves and cry that's wild.
12:44 pm
it is not. the. that. was the president the world's most powerful central bank the u.s. federal reserve troops to learn. to use the computer to mark up. the federal reserve. to print money because. we.
12:45 pm
feel in the u.s. the creation of money can be focused on public spending specially when the economy is in trouble. in the eurozone during hard times this could happen. she made sacrifices. and sacrifice to stand ready. to go the. economy. you know.
12:46 pm
research and. in italy national funding to the regions linked to social policies was reduced by approximately eighty percent from two thousand and seven to two thousand and fourteen. you're a member of the matter of the bones if we got it right it is the austerity that decides how many don't should be placed in a room of one hundred dogs. this is the room. on it no one look to the well. until it is. when you listen on to say you need to
12:47 pm
be needed by that it will see when your deposits and. cocktail. channels i'll be wanting the incentive i wanted more money in it bullies met it out . for you by the ultimate punishment disappointment. that could never be held it or you can. only get it going to the innocent. normal. girl. trying to set some limits so it is not all just to hate inclusion of the audience. in order and not just on ability to check or to see me you know they are because the hit to the option
12:48 pm
idea you found you don't sit down until somebody told you. want to be one of them johnny's old need the sun meeting needed tell me is it any easier the need to punish and continue i want to lean or. will semicolon are chock full of it does. it tell me what it should i will somebody. what we have learned is that if you are in a situation of low growth even the recession austerity is a very bad idea it doesn't work and it makes millions of people very unhappy those who are unemployed see their wages decline. and as a result in due course on the countries of the eurozone have been doing much less well in terms of wikinomics developments of growth unemployment the country outside
12:49 pm
he was on not just. dismantled. believes true. collapse. at least as you saw on the day yet the economy. the only and. he's going to dog me. to do when i say they. said to new york he's welcome by the people. a choice. he did before the kilometers i mean to follow me go to school pretty
12:50 pm
clearly going to me of a day job if you didn't live you don't mean it going to be. going to be a lift. but is it true that the national debt is a problem. probably. you know make a move for them but you've got to get the nannies that we need to missions that you don't have. known yet they were on that upgrade that impresses the out of phase with the biblical the. problem it. will begin to take out of the kid after they sold the carry out to the new to the immediate and the man you did with the would go i made a calendar with that. put a sovereign currency is a currency that is under the control of its issuer so there is an important
12:51 pm
relationship that exists in any sovereign country that has a sovereign currency the relationship is that the government collects taxes in that currency spends in that currency and has a monopoly over the ability to create that currency so in canada and in the us in australia and britain the governments are the only ones who can create their own currency here in the euro zone governments spend in euro's and taxing arrows but cannot create the currency. of the idea in their they settled the medication they'll go look at the un approval number need to do that do not put into it that it was they were all stern i'll. give you that movie it'll probably have a degree to do with believe movie where. these are the countries of the world whose
12:52 pm
public debt can be a problem because they are on a bill to create their own. when you buy u.k. government you knew now that you will always be. in sterling at the moment of maturity because the bank of england will make sure that the cash we have now to call from. issuing debt all means not anymore but in you post and you also are in fact like foreign currencies and as a result if markets distrust them and then me massively silver bullets knowing governments may not have the cash you will cash to pay out to both told us and therefore precipitating a crisis in a self-fulfilling we pushing it doesn't government into illiquidity it cannot
12:53 pm
find the cash and possibly default to. the. last. to grow because it's a. good bit about. how an academic paper by a harvard economist rogue often reinhart which conservatives will read wider using to argue for austerity was recently refuted by a us grad student just because it had a few simple spreadsheet errors and a couple of little staggering omissions that made it slightly fundamentally wrong please welcome thomas hearns and mr arnold thanks probationer was one of the most important american comedy talk shows to realize that you have upset some people
12:54 pm
in the austerity crowd do you have someone starting your car for you right now its austerity policies on the theories of reinhart and rogoff when the public exceeds ninety percent of g.d.p. it becomes an obstacle to growth however the two great economists had committed i'm not alignment in the columns of their ex spread. time as i've been talking to a lot of the media across the world they've given you some pretty heartbreaking stories about what's going on in europe and you know i've also seen the effects of it in this country as well why we have to keep cutting the government budget and laying off people until those people get jobs that's right you got it the austerity policies are based on a full blown discount. you know but they see their already using it all over europe and they love it so much that they have celebrations in the street sometimes with. sometimes just wire and every day. despite seven years having elapsed since the
12:55 pm
beginning of the crisis the economic studies continue to support the danger of public debts which are too high and the need to cut public spending and the deficit . back. to percent. the. equally month immediately meet they didn't put it that we had respect. for them in. to put it to me that i would. decree that it me. ok. is just something that is going to shake it's like. something to no scientific basis for imposing.
12:56 pm
intelligent people. we reject this it doesn't make sense if you do death spending you're not adding your stimulus you're not giving the economy drugs are you doing is you're removing a restriction so you want to think of the economy like we do as i don't pick run it that's all have to run it's it's educated it's got good capital goods behind it it's got. lots of always lots of food what you know everything you need in your economy housing clothing music production ok but then all of a sudden you put a plastic bag over the head of the satellite and he can't breathe right and so now we can't run and so what we're saying is just like remove the restriction. one see . as a bank at the event that there is even a jannat you did. then the piano doing this to mean people rishi a bank gets into that it is that you need a federal reserve to stump up the money. in the in the weekend last decade if he
12:57 pm
she will be coming weekend on saturday if you know the shooter to change the trade quadrupled the good from date to the change given both in vision who will show who decided and why the sprinter had to run with the plastic bag had. chose seemed wrong. at all just don't hold. me you will get to shape out this day comes to agitate and gain from it equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. about your sudden passing i've only just learned you were yourself and taken your
12:58 pm
last wrong turn. you're after caught up to you as we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry if i could so i write these last words in hopes to put to rest these things that i never got off my chest. i remember when we first met my life turned on each breath. but then my feeling started to change you talked about war like it was again still some are fond of you those that didn't like to question our ark and i secretly promised to never be like it said one does not leave a funeral the same as one enters in mind it's consumed with death this one quite different to speak to you now because there are no other takers. to claim that mainstream media has met its maker.
12:59 pm
our. earth both of us. last time we traced to a chain of all each one of them carrying twenty kilos of drugs to this very first offense to. lose their lives just the words for it. is their free will remain there all mortal men then there is the door for this is for them to live a guy like it would be a well i don't was there for no baby don't get a miracle. i walk down a great. well
1:00 pm
i'm says his. behind plenty of surprises. r.t. travels to be iraqi city of. government forces painstaking and dangerous making the city safe enough for civilians to return. muslim refugee. groups in germany that's according to a new study comes as chancellor merkel plans to continue her open door policy for migrants. we bring you the story of
1:01 pm
a six year old girl who survived. in yemen killed at least fourteen seven. from moscow to the world this is our team international mining's you know me welcome to the program our top story this hour the iraqi army house that cleared that most of the city of tel afar has been liberated from islamic state it had been the militant stronghold in the northwest of the country there's a long way to go before the city can return to normal though those terrorists are still holed up in basements. tunnels there for us is morocco's the. then the islamia by the islamic state will remain you'll find graffiti like that plastered over the bridges and buildings inside of frog iraq he sent his
1:02 pm
haven't yet gotten around to covering them up what with being busy fighting a day off to the victory was announced here and tired of fighting still hasn't died down isis hygiene throughout the city and while they don't hold any geographic areas or districts in their hiding in basements and buildings and in time rooms underneath the city waiting to ambush patrolling iraqi soldiers. was. one lawyer was welcome to it. well i says has been beaten in tal afar they've made sure to leave behind plenty of surprises booby traps everywhere intel a five they have ten the city interests up as nightmare and coming in here we were
1:03 pm
bloomed multiple times not to touch anything no matter how innocent it might seem for we know behind these. could be explosives booby traps baboons behind the time even in the right switches. would be one where officers went into a house and sat on a sofa exploded along with the house they had booby trapped the sofa another example they were explosive to light switches when you turn on their lights the house explodes they were bombs into refrigerators and even the door handles when you open the door and explodes. i've just come back from telefon you can didn't lie down on the bed without cyprus check and first drop bombs and wires everywhere we don't touch anything. do all we can to disarm everything but there's only so much we can do some houses will have to be destroyed. this bomb was intended for those
1:04 pm
but the planes and helicopters destroyed the roads and i also couldn't get the combo out engineers found it and dismantled it if it had been used it would have done as great damage they disarm the explosive canisters and detonated them in a controlled explosion but it's strange isis folded almost too quickly. there is evidence that around four hundred families of isis fighters were allowed to leave on august twenty fifth in an unspecified direction the rumor among iraqi troops is that as many as two thousand isis fighters have been given safe passage out of tal afar into syria again this is a rumor and we conned confirm it but it would explain the unexpectedly easy fight
1:05 pm
iraqi troops wouldn't let us into the center of telephone saying would still far too dangerous but having spent some time in the suburbs we haven't seen a single civilian most of them ran when the opportunity presented itself as the battle began braving the must for the present in order to get away but fear of the iraqi ministry in the u.s. led to release and brits to the best might file a fraud of them through and through combat the question is how much of qualified will be left to come back to more i'd guys do you have from talib iraq. meanwhile in syria government forces have started an offensive to liberate another stronghold dairies or and these are the latest pictures of earth strikes on terrorist positions there you're starting from on cost with the pivotal operation.
1:06 pm
russian defense ministry reports on another successful operation meant to bring peace to syria and so this is the latest video released by the russian military following a successful offensive by the syrian army with the help of russian air and space forces i saw a minute since have now no words at cern but regroup in there as or they brought in heavy equipment including tanks and other high caliber weapons into the area but russian defense ministry said that overnight and on monday russian airplanes destroyed multiple targets including tanks armored cars and minutes and artillery positions this way the syrian army were able to continue its offensive there as a war with the ultimate goal of freedom and of course there is or by the way is the largest city in eastern syria and it's been under siege still since twenty fourteen with over one hundred thousand civilians still trapped there now happens that there
1:07 pm
is or is the final frontier of international terrorism in syria so all of it there could mean more peaceful times and. almost a fifth of people in germany have said they would not welcome having muslim or refugee neighbors that's according to a recent study as the country continues to try and integrate an influx of migrants a survey revealed that nineteen percent of germans were against the idea chancellor merkel has promoted on open door policy since the beginning of the refugee crisis but has occasionally bucked tracked on the issue or europe correspondent peter all of her looks at how interest rates could influence voters in next month's german election. angle merkel currently sits around sixteen to seventeen points clear in the polls ahead of elections that are in well just under one month's time here in germany when she was talking in a recent interview about the twenty fifteen refugee crisis well she said that if
1:08 pm
she could go back in time to that point she wouldn't change a thing in the past the german chancellor has spoken differently on this issue we didn't embrace the problem in an appropriate week and also girls who are protecting the borders of the area in previous times those statements have helped or at least been part of giving her a kick in the polls well something she clearly doesn't need out the moment in response to challenger barton schulz of the social democratic party here in germany also of course of the former president of the european parliament well he described the german chancellor is out of touch and aloof however that is and seemingly pulling him back on lead at the moment but of course we also can't have an election in europe these days without russia getting a mention in this time it's come courtesy of hans the old math and he's the head of the b f l it's the same as say the f.b.i.
1:09 pm
in the united states or m i five in the united kingdom the internal intelligence service he said that russia has the potential to carry out sophisticated hacks that will every then went on to say that there's absolutely no evidence to suggest that this is in the pipeline at all that it's set to happen which leaves many questioning why he decided to give that interview in the first place for the situation we have at the moment is that with angela merkel so far out in front in the polls it does look like this is a german election whereby the interests of voters may take something of a back seat as the focus turns inwards towards what type of governments angle or merkel will be able to form and what type of coalition she will opt for when she ultimately returns as the german chancellor. an alleged saudi led coalition air strike in the yemeni capital killed at least fourteen civilians
1:10 pm
on friday the destruction brought down a whole apartment block but one girl managed to survive a warning you may find the following images the strobing. they know. fame t.j. getting late. and every gate scares get a little heat and she is the only child who survived the air strikes that hit the house and that's an all of her family died her father mother and siblings. their parish. we found multiple fractures in her left cheek as well as cracks in the bone round her eye and across her forehead. hundreds of locals return to the scene of the strike protesting against riyadh's continued bombing campaign in yemen in another incident last week
1:11 pm
a hotel near sun was hit killing fifty one people among the dead were both civilians and the rebels relatives of the victims from not bombardment are also blaming the saudi led coalition and demanding justice. canada but i know they were just workers trying to make a living and they were targeted by warplanes the yemeni people want to show their anger at this crime committed against them. to my sons' were martyred by the saudi grocers they were farmers they had nothing to do with the war i appealed to the international community to the united nations to punish those who committed this crime no one does or not would demand that the international community and the united nations which is remaining silent find a solution for these disparate people well a saudi led coalition described the hotel bombing as quote a technical mistake a spokesman expressed regret of the collateral damage and offered condolences to
1:12 pm
the families of the victims let's get into this further and toss live to him sharif comes the director of human rights. for yemen kim hello to you as we've just been showing there are so do you really be admitted one of its recent strikes did kill civilians i will reiterate what they said they called it a technical mistake is anybody going to be held responsible do you think. they have to be held responsible under international law unfortunately what we have is the power of the international politics that is supporting the saudi led coalition that is causing untold amounts of these war crimes these suggestions that it was a technical error is completely false as far as i know it was a double tap strike and a double tap strike basically means that they went and came back and hit it again to make sure maximum number of people are killed so that's one and the second thing
1:13 pm
is there are thousands and thousands of civilian targets having been hit during the last two and a half years so to claim that there was an air are all collateral is nonsense as far as international law is concerned each target over civilian places school or hospital amounts to a war crime even if we discover later on that that place was used for military purposes so civilians are not a target and can never be the saudi can let goes of the saudi regime along with all those who are assisting them in this unfortunate creation of a manmade catastrophe in the yemen have to be tried for war crimes sooner or later the figures are extraordinary on ten thousand civilians this week sixty five civilians alone killed by earth strikes in yemen what is their knowledge more pressure being put on by its western allies to stop the war. well unfortunately as you well probably know very well the secret council is
1:14 pm
dominated by two prominent members who are the ones who are selling the weapons to the saudi regime and that is where the main obstacle lies unfortunately and every move to commission an international investigation you will find that these two countries britain and the u.s. do everything they can to obstruct that and not only that they fiercely lobby for their allies the saudi led coalition to have a place of the human rights council therefore rendering the u.n. itself a joke in the international platform what the yemeni people and other decent intelligent people in the world are saying we call upon the other sensible intelligent decent members of the security council such as russia and china to actually make a more sound on this because the consequences of continuing this illegality in yemen to daylight robbery and rape against the sovereign state of yemen by the
1:15 pm
saudi led coalition aided and abetted by these countries who are selling weapons to them now the people of yemen and many other people are looking to the state of russia and china to say we call upon you to please make a firm stand here because there is a holocaust in yemen and there is no common sense prevailing of the security council other than these two states now to make a firm stand not only because it is human thing to do and this is legal the right thing to do but also these two states have vital commercial interests in the waters of southern yemen so it is in their best interest to now act and act very quickly before the whole of yemen is started in two major proxy terrorist campaign or wars spread out by the saudi regime and i just briefly get your thoughts on another freshening issue the break of cholera the ever worsening famine in yemen come the
1:16 pm
humanitarian crisis be eased for people in the country what needs to be done in that regard. well that's a very important question and that's what we have been campaigning for for a very long time and we've actually warned the un about the catastrophe situation from around here when we started receiving reports about the famine the figures are horrific the sun i report is closed there is a total blockade on the country. nothing really goes in except if the saudi coalition's say so and lot of them they don't say so because they want to punish the people of yemen for choosing their own government in samarra what the saudi regime wants to do is dictate not only to its own people by being an oppressive regime in its own country it also wants to dictate to its own neighbors and you can see the relations with qatar how it went you can see the same situation in yemen in the case of yemen they actually regard the people of yemen as nothing more nothing
1:17 pm
less than a bunch of slaves and they regard yemen as its backyard which again isn't in compliance with international law and it is disgraceful to say the least now the figures that are killed by the airstrikes are one say for example at the moment we have figures of up to sixteen thousand people killed by civilians killed by the airstrikes now figures at least twice that figure die as a result of the blockade because they have no medicine they can't leave the country to seek help after they get ted and the figures that you spoke about in the after an incident probably going to be a lot more than that because the people are likely to die and the cholera is the deliberate weapon of war by the saudi regime ok time is just against but thank you very much for coming on the program and explaining always insightful kim sharif director of human rights for yemen. rival protests in california broke out in violence as the left and right continue to battle it out in the us live it's not
1:18 pm
often. i. i. i. called the we go. every the world should be real.
1:19 pm
good on the old old. old according to you just. want to. come along for the ride. back in the u.s. where a powerful blast has hit a building in the city of houston according to local media sources the incident occurred on a legal firms office in the area firefighters are tackling to put out the blaze there are no reports of any injuries at this point of course the state of texas has been devastated by hurricane harvey over the last few days the strongest storm in america in over a decade. well u.s. is denying russian relatives access to a boy who lost both his parents near los angeles last week done the motos off

father is suspected of killing his mother and abducting the nine year old boy the father was later fatally shot by police following a manhunt the boy holds jewel u.s. russian citizenship on this now safe and protective custody but his family counts speak to him. at the at the no reply was provided to either the consulate to us or them on the walls the situation is becoming more complicated as the u.s. as an internal matter. the american authorities have repeatedly blocked any attempts of the immediate relatives including danielle's on call from contacting the boy without giving any clear explanation russian authorities say they will continue and temps to establish contact between the boy and his relatives in compliance with his rights. a rival protests on
1:21 pm
sunday in the u.s. city of berkeley california descended into chaos as m t fascist demonstrators broke through police barricades during a rally against hate and was the name of the actual event and clashed with right wing activists. it was. was was. was. well prior to the unrest police sticks mosques and any potential weapons but dozens of anti fascist protesters broke those rules one left wing demonstrator attacked a photographer others reportedly threatened people who were trying to film the violence but some scenes were still caught on camera.
1:22 pm
well this for you appears to show really you listen shielding a mom from a group of must be fascist protesters in a separate incident a month old to be a trump supporter was attacked by a mall ball for he pepper sprayed some of the counter protesters six people were injured in the broken wrist and thirteen arrests were made. for here outside of work in the civic center in downtown berkeley california as you can see around me there's a huge crowd of people calling themselves anti fascist protesters these are people that assemble to calendar a right wing rally that was called enough for today for this afternoon to the slogan say no to marxism well these are posts here that object to a number of the people involved with that recorded right wing rally talking to the white supremacy and fascism assemble to denounce it while the nazis may have a right to demonstrate we've got
1:23 pm
a right to show that there are million clients who are for us and there are them any time a group preaches the hatred that you've seen from the out right i think it's only human toe match that even if it's not the most mature reaction it's only human to match that with some kind of anger and aggression really want to stand for nonviolence who would take the side against people that speak for violence including politicians such as donald trump one grouping that is widely present is the folks who call themselves at and t. foss some of them also would call themselves the black bloc people with masks over their faces are you know how many goggles there are here for a fight almost i mean they get that impression be seen repeatedly from folks try to come into the crowd began you know begin spent sending out their message state making statements in support of dollar trial out of the crowd going to circling up the police moving in and scuffles breaking out. there is just one illustration of the ongoing division that continues to. take
1:24 pm
place across the united states especially in the aftermath of charlottesville a lot of different views being expressed here a lot of anger but a lot of folks that just say they're worried about their country it's been quite a crazy scene here in downtown berkeley california well the vice chair person of the u.s. liberation party believes some protesters have no other goals but to incite violence i think a lot of the responses that we're seeing in terms of violence in terms of using mace in terms of using other tools is really showing bad a lot of that self described an arc is are not actually anarchies they're just people engaging in violence as an anarchist are people who oppose the government not people who just opposed people that they agree with that they disagree with and try to fight words with violence and violent politics is a rejection of everything american stands for and i really think that the vast majority of americans want to see an end to all of that violence love around the world from moscow this is r.t. i'll be back with more of the stories affecting your world in iraq thirty five
1:25 pm
minutes time more programs right ahead. please. please.
1:26 pm
i. just posted. last time we chased. each one of carrying twenty kilos of drugs. that. is the main thing. they have this is the business for me. i don't know maybe they don't make or. break.
1:27 pm
ground work. welcome to. well the climate and. my mental issues may seem less serious than the breaking news of the day the ecology actually lays at the root of many of today's global troubles. what exactly are the implications of climate
1:28 pm
change on the politics of the world well today i talked to the russian presidential envoy for environment and transportation who once also served as russia's defense minister. is my guest today. green energy sources effects of climate change will hit harder as we move into an uncertain future with the environment an increasing pressing issue for the coming decades so are we heading into an eco wars how the problems of overpopulation and scores of resources be tackled and can the world powers act quickly in. the course of nature. so they have on the presidential and way for environment transportation really great program once again. so let's talk about what about the paris climate record lot of politicians government scientists story. the person he says he
1:29 pm
doesn't care about the climate change is actually pledged to cancel the paris accord me with him you never know because one day he says one thing and the day he says never think so what should we expect and can we trust his statements to starts with. we'll know what you said before. well in american business. well as you know the paris change agreement has been signed and in fact it's already ratified by one hundred thirty six countries. russia hasn't yet done its because we want to carefully analyze the consequences of this parrot various. climate change agreement it's a framework agreement we want to let's say count. the huge
1:30 pm
amount of russian forests which absorbs a lot of. the uk since carbon dioxide because in fact russia is the world's dawna in ecology russia absorbs much more carbon dioxide that it then introduce. so we want to make sure that our obligations will be fulfilled as president putin said during the signing of the paris agreement we have a very ambitious a of cutting. carbon dioxide emissions. so the level of sense seventy percent counting from the nineteen ninety which is very ambitious and i'm sure will hit the target by the year two thousand and thirteen if you don't mind we're going to talk in detail about the downfalls that this treaty could cost the russian economy but before that why i asked about trump statement is because i
1:31 pm
remember for instance with the kyoto protocol on global warming. it crumbled after bush abandoned its thinking of trying does the same it does it risk that the states that are involved will sort of say we don't need this treaty and more looks awfully driving you to comment on the american position all the time as a said. regardless of the american position. we're concerned with the climate change with think that there is a global warming at least on the north pole and him a sphere i will comment on that later but. emitting carbon dioxide depends mainly on the sort of energy most of the world use. i don't know again what. president trump thinks all the american business and i suspect they don't want the better said bream and to curtail the economic
1:32 pm
growth i always suspect it doesn't. insist on that but that's my attitude my approach ok let's leave trump aside but as someone who knows so much about it and who's served so much in the government do you feel like intuition only that this accord will go down because kyoto and copenhagen didn't really happen you know well it depends of course agreement will say. the. reasonable that it will it will be fulfilled finally but there is one condition by everybody if one country for example forgets it and doesn't stay in the limits which it promised then i'm sure that other countries will all might rethink their obligations that's quite possible but so far i would like to
1:33 pm
stress that again the paris agreement is a free work agreement there are no. specific limits on anything and as. you probably know. the devil is in the details. so let's talk precisely about russia you've said that russia is carefully assessing this framework. implementing the paris what kind of the konami downturns are we talking about for russia. i don't expect that. they will be the end of the oil or natural gas people i don't believe that. at the same time. the number of solar energy in russian grows slowly but gradually and we have several regions like orchestras. the area or even far in the north where there is a lot of sun. in that. limited areas makes sense
1:34 pm
to use renewable energy mainly sun energy. recently there is also one source of renewable energy in russia which has never been used a toll and i mean waste and litter. because we're now going to build five big units. with litter and waste will be burned producing heat or electricity and i'm sure russia generates such an amount of waste overseas have a lot of ways to produce energy so that brings me to the other two questions because russia like you said we don't predict the end of the oil industry and if i own feeling is in where are the largest producer of crude oil second largest producer of natural gas. i mean we've been doing pretty well in those fields i mean
1:35 pm
the existing scheme is so efficient wind vest so much in the renewals isn't this a risk. first of all is technology secondly. it is possible but i am not a clairvoyant ok but. we don't know what will happen with technologies in one hundred years time. it's quite possible that any new technology will emerge which will make producing energy from wind or sun or waste cheaper than the earth and producing natural gas or oil i'm not sure so do you think that what would happen like you're saying there will be oil but no one's going to use it anymore because the new energy is going to be cheaper sarah was just going to automatically. believe that still there will be one hundred years ahead they will boil their will but natural gas but for example cars which
1:36 pm
consume the most amount of oil as a petrol more and more cars will be electricity so what about the near future if we look at the euro prince we're also one of the largest exporter of gas and oil to europe so let's say we're starting to pay attention and curb greenhouse gas emissions and invest less in the resources that we're talking about than what happens to europe are there any repercussions for them. what happens with europe yes i mean we're going to be obviously were i was warning less gas and i'm so worried about. first of all i always insisted that russia is also a european country mentally graphic even religiously where europeans. and most of the europeans who might talk to agree to that secondly it depends of course on the energy balance which i have mentioned before. countries who
1:37 pm
don't have a lot of natural resources or yes they're more motivated right now too. to move into the direction of. everything depends on price on the economy but again. if we speak of natural gas its environmental friendly energy type. i don't see how for example germany might substitute russian gas. in the nearest future once i remember president joked when he was in germany that ok you don't write you don't like russian you don't like russian oil you don't like russian yes but how will you heat yourselves using wood but again this wood will be
1:38 pm
russian. so that leaves the question open to be serious about it but speaking back to the paris agreement we're going to stick to it where going to rectify it i would like to make that point very clear and our girl is much more ambitious than most of the other countries in the world seventy percent of carbon dioxide emissions by two thousand and thirty is much more than. promised to do by the same time. what exactly is it terrorism. it's exists in two very different forms. one. is actions by very radical ecological organizations. like for example we're in peace
1:39 pm
attacks or oil rigs. or. fisheries nets. and there is another side of the story or another side of the medal if you remember iraq aggression against kuwait in one thousand nine hundred. military forces out of kuwait under the world pressure. they set fire on oil rigs. exploded some of them so that a huge amount of oil went to the gulf. and for many years there was no fish no life no sea life. it's called in my view. so ecotourism already exists.
1:40 pm
i can forecast this century another type of threat that one country for different reasons maybe economic maybe political won't comply with international environmental laws. and in that case i may forecast i may forecasts international ecological sanctions against this of that country do you feel like the threat of eco terrorism right now our days is more acute than when iraq you're in iraq. i would say you would but i still think it's it's theoretically possible it's possible. some. i don't know. some mad dictator for example. dictates to use in the disaster as
1:41 pm
a last resort to withstand for example foreign pressure. unfortunately we're going to take a break right now when we're back we'll continue talking to city about health russian president special envoy for environment and transportation also former defense minister of russian federation talking about paris of course talking about the arctic and the global shortfall in water stay with us.
1:42 pm
what politicians do. they put themselves on the lawn to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. or somehow want to be rich. that you'd like to be prosperous like the flag tree in the morning can't be good that. i'm interested in the law as it. seems wrong what. just don't all. get to shape our. engagement.
1:43 pm
find themselves worlds apart. just to look for common ground the. financial survival today was all about money laundering first to visit this cash in the three different. oh good this is a good start well we have our three banks all set up for something and you're going to america something overseas or the cayman islands it will pull these banks are complicit in their tough talk just after all it's a need to do some serious. ok let's see how we did well we've got a nice luxury watch. for stacey old beautiful jewelry and how about. luxury automobile for max you know what money laundering is highly illegal for a watch guys record.
1:44 pm
back with the symbol of i know presidents and ways for environment and transportation the move on talk about arctic because that's another huge topic everyone's talking about twenty two percent of the world's on discovered oil and gas do you think the race for this piece of pie could cost you one further tensions on the international scene you're quite right that a huge amount of oil yes but not only. go. to and already about. i'm sure this.
1:45 pm
movement over russia in the direction of the arctic will continue that i am absolutely sure. it. depends how economic interests and economic reasons coincides with mental protection. if we speak your boat oil rigs or mitchell yes reeks of. they should be much more reliable and safe than for example those used in on the offshore for african in nigeria so environment so the limitations and rules should be much stricter than that elsewhere i mean usa i don't want to comment on politics but sometimes anything that has to do with environment is linked to politics and you can't separate these two and you said that russia will continue its nose and towards dark ticks so let us arctic military drills they have caused
1:46 pm
a lot of uproar in here opened the media has actually even compared it to the cold war style saber rattling why do you think that anything that russia does in your region is automatically considered as aggression. well i don't see much military activity in the arctic two or three i was a minister of defense for six years so i know what i'm talking about. we have several. which you might call new bases but in fact they're not new they existed during the soviet times where simply getting back to disintegration of the country causing the military budget besides. arctic military bases they don't affect international security it's not nuclear missile sites it's nothing like that. they're purely defensive for example defense system why can't we
1:47 pm
deploy a defense system or now a national territory we don't move our military infrastructure outside our own country. secondly military bases in fact help exploring the arctic and using it in quite peaceful purposes for example in the metal logic in the weather forecasting in examining the drift of the ice that ocean is definitely melting that's a fact and it's it melts don't rather drastically so like to say that it's all melted down it's just like free water so anyone can cross them at some point by twenty thirty they said it's going to last for in the summer depends i can give you one figure. of the arctic area males though who we got much quicker than the northern hemisphere in general. in the last thirty
1:48 pm
years the temperature in the arctic changed. zero point eight degrees centigrade in thirty years that's quite a lot of course nobody expects that the arctic will melt down overnight that's impossible and things both wouldn't happen that way but definitely mel's. for russia there are both pros and cons and that pros of course if the northern arctic route will be seattle it will be free it brings it will bring russia huge benefits and transportation because the road if we call it c c a week from more months to live you are stuck is twice as short as it is now the indian ocean. there are also
1:49 pm
cons for example if the tundra starts to melt down then a lot of construction already existing in that area. i would say collapse but it will create a lot of problems but so it depends the way you talk and the way scientists it does seem kind of inevitable that some point it's going to be ice free at least in the summer i don't like the news ways cannot i don't expect it will be ice free very soon maybe in two or three hundred years. but. ok right now arctic. but who knows what will happen in three or four hundred years maybe it's thought it will start to cool. well i always mention northern hemisphere once i was in that. there are several russian untalked extinctions
1:50 pm
and we monitor the climate for over sixty years. and the amount of ice in the doctor is not melting at all but in groups. in simple language i think the climate for the world it's it like greece is getting cooler it's getting warmer it's giving you warm and to make very far reaching conclusions you need a scientific data. for a period of at least one thousand years so. if you. they want nothing to see to three hundred years what happens there are in touch upon another topic which is. water water. shortfall which is also predicted in.
1:51 pm
but or could be some yes. to make it short i believe in that. once lived in africa. i'm an old spy ok. and right now it's already a huge problem in africa with freshwater it already exists and there are lots of areas in the world central asian some other asian countries africa where there is not enough of your drinking water russia is blessed. to host a huge amount of fresh clean water
