motoring a new book alleging trump is unfit to be president kimberly help get al-jazeera the white house when karl is an ex cia official says it's not unusual for former intelligence officers to have security clearance. the only reason security car clearances would be revoked is for national security which meaning is that someone has mishandled classified information or is found to be a security threat to the nation the security threat to the nation amply documented actually sitting in the oval office in the white house you don't remove ok it never happens secure you never revoke security clearances for political differences in fact the foundation of the united states and of a democracy is on free speech and there are two hundred forty years of history in the united states that seek to protect speech that one hates not speech that one likes that's what her speech is and this protected so this is

a purely political and dangerous for democracy step taken right out of the white house clearances don't expire at the end of one's function they they're on a schedule they last from five to ten years normally at the end of which time one is reinvestigated and then the clearance is granted again if there is a need or it simply expires now the reason that john brennan or someone of a senior position like john had as director of cia or director of another intelligence agency in the u.s. community would want to have or or it would be good to have the security clearance is because they are frequently called back on wise men panels to consult and offer their perspective the objective being to provide different points of view and not only that of the institution as it is currently constituted so it's a useful thing for the government and for the country that former officers senior

i'll say a little bit to silva has registered him as a candidate for the a come. in presidential election thousands rallied in the capital brasilia to show their support for his candidacy was convicted and jailed for corruption tied to his time in office. israel has reopened the only commercial crossing into gaza after a month long shut down across crossing was closed because of heightened tensions between the israelis and the palestinians henri's carrying clothes fuel and construction material cannot enter gaza israel has also lifted sanctions on the fishing was own off shore more now from charles trafford. trucks have started arriving here at gaza's only commercial crossing with israel they stop for example will fill up with goods across the border before returning gaza we understand around eight hundred trucks are expected to pass the bill with us today now we understand that a lot of pressure came on israel as well from israeli businesses that contract out
1:07 pm
goals of the workers inside gaza or for example the textile industry that kind of pressure being put on the israeli government because those businesses were concerned that those goods were not coming out we understand that the exports of goods from gaza could well starts tomorrow but of course this kind of movement at the crossings here this crossing being opened is all dependent it's staying open his old dependence on the relative calm between hamas and israel continuing. goods coming in including construction materials petrol gas and vegetables and clothing but i learned sort go out all over europe with where the stores were closed transport was stopped people have been really suffering thank god things have calmed down now in gaza a bit on the trucks can start moving across the border again but i figure we're going to. israel has also increased the area in which fishermen can work could see

1:17 pm
a year it's welcome news for yellow taxi drivers right share cars now outnumber them a new york city streets by nearly ten to one last year for the first time ever overtook yellow cabs in daily ridership new york's yellow taxi drivers have been pushing the city hard for the limit saying the increase in numbers have left them hurting financially. since he did not pay any attention and to give a free hand toolbars to make money. just in the past eight months six new york city taxi drivers to committed suicide advocates and activists say it's because of income. financial pressure on long time yellow cab drivers like this pressure is being accumulated because of increased competition from services such as hoover and lift sometimes feeling a taxi is easy. and sometimes it's not to fight against this measure
1:18 pm
arguing it would adversely affect blacks and latinos living in poor neighborhoods who have long complained of often being refused service by yellow cab drivers. the ride sharing firms had the support of the city's civil rights groups and an industry that had discriminated against community be the. same thing except you're now almost the harder it is it now crying foul because they don't have a monopoly game in the city hoping however that cap on ride sharing cars will level the playing field a profit sharing for all drivers and maybe even save the iconic taxi industry gabriels andro in new york.

1:22 pm
ok go in the stream today environmental special we take a look at why twenty eighteen. and why some cities are actually sinking imo they could be a lot of our lives. and i'll be looking out for your comments in your questions before we get to the global heat wave penguins the flightless birds capture the imagination of the child in all of us but they're being severely affected by climate change. so far as we know scientists have never visited this. before so the group we're with once and i. was in the other species living here we have behind me a whole lot of a down. the street. is looking
1:23 pm
a bit old because he's losing his business a few months old it's a very friendly. we've got indicators of. temperature measurements recession on the movement of birds to different habitats all of which suggests to us that change is going in one particular direction the printer is getting warmer the ice is getting less and some of the more sensitive species are having a heart attack. but those adelie penguins aren't the only ones being affected by climate change a recent study of the world's largest colony of kingpin whens has found that their population declined by eighty eight percent over the last thirty five years from two million to less than two. hundred thousand the flightless birds live on an
1:24 pm
island halfway between the tip of africa and antarctica now penguins aren't an endangered species yet but what does it mean for their future with so many dying or relocating. and it is joining us she is a doctor and she's in the college a part of the antartica program at pointe blue conservation science and ultimate shela rue is also an ecologist it's good to have you here looking at this. point blue conservation science penguins losing habitat in antarctica could be decimated by twenty nine hundred nine so the idea that there are some species of penguin that might not be with us in the decades to come what impact might that have on the rest of us. well we all of penguins so it would be a tragedy i think for all of us to envision a world with no penguins or at least many fewer penguins and i think we also
1:25 pm
think of penguins and sea birds in general as indicators of broader ocean help so if we're losing the penguins it probably means we're also losing other things that are potentially important for humans like fish and krill and that are supporting. things that we depend on economically and for food. and interesting that you said that because this is adam here what i think would completely agree with you he says sadly we won't notice the impact until they leave a vacuum no one thought that eradicating the wolf population in the western u.s. would result in land lost near creeks and rivers so that's just one example there but he then writes in to help explain in his view why this is happening he gave a list of reasons here michel he says die offs are a natural occurrence in evolution there could be corporate fishing that's hijacked their food source our oceans are too polluted and our oceans are also too loud for
1:26 pm
some species with sonar tech causing confusion what do we know michelle about the kingpin whims and what's happened to them well so i think what we're seeing with the king penguins is is really interesting and i want to put it in context for just a second because there's been two important studies i think that have come out just this year so at the beginning of this year there was a study suggesting that the world's population of king penguins is likely to be either relocated or disappear by up to seventy percent and then just a few months later a completely different research group. suggested you know is showing basically that on a particular island close a we're seeing the exact you know population decline that was being predicted and so there's multiple things that could be happening here so the first is of course that they're just not surviving the second is that maybe some of them are
1:27 pm
relocating to different locations but it's really hard to tell because it's hard to get to some of these locations in the subantarctic islands and so i think there's probably very likely a combination of things that's happening here it's probably climate change and you know potentially overfishing potentially pollution i really do think there's probably a combination of factors that are contributing to the declines that we're seeing. i mean when you're looking at you all penguins that you study what are you seeing as far as climate change actually happening right now yeah they call me is that i work at are some of the furthest south delhi colonies actually they are we have one colony where cut is the furthest south and then the other conny which is a very large chronic cruger in the rossi is one of the largest penguin adelie colonies in the world and it is the furthest south for that the colony of that size and what we're seeing that that in these areas is some mixed signals to be sure but
1:28 pm
it's large colony is doing very well in fact has been growing pretty steadily over the past decade or so. and. so we think that actually is related to or could be related to climate change there's a number of other factors also but. one thing that's been happening in the last years we've actually been seen an increase in sea ice in contrast to a lot of the rest of antarctica and that may also be being driven by climate change what i'm hearing from the both of you is very educated sessions of we have no idea we. thought this is backed up in the show by your twitter feed here and you say science takes time and science in antarctica can really take a long time but it's so worth the wait say chain for more info and. i'm actually also new questions that could be yes' in years and years of study but what you can
1:29 pm
tell us right now is when you are up close and very close to the penguins what is the appeal of studying these kind of see me shall you stopped. penguins are. very easily my favorite bird and emperor penguins in particular they if i'm going to anthropomorphize are going to put some human qualities to them right now and say that they're they're just very they're serene they're very they embody their name they're very you know king like they're very emperor like and i mean so being around them is just this very it's just absolutely amazing to be around them and to watch them kind of just do their thing but more broadly looking you know being able to be around them in thinking about how they fit within the ecosystem is fascinating as an ecologist because what i'm interested in is looking at their populations not just one location across the you know the entire continent which is
1:30 pm
a huge area and so i want to kind of hit back on one of the things we were just talking about their differences in their populations depending on where you are so like a play. like the antarctic peninsula which is seeing a lot of serious decline you are going to see some pretty drastic shifts and changes in the way the penguins are doing and some populations are doing great some are doing fine but it depends on where you are of course. on twitter then we just go down here the state the the beautiful the mysterious and what a great photograph these photographs actually a lot of them are taken by you adding in a sentence to penguins you love them because why finish the sentence. i think and i'm going to go in contrast to michelle my favorite penguins are and earlier than most of the ones i study so i'm not biased at all. there are just incredibly engaging and they have so much attitude and i think there is definitely a little bit of like we feel connected to them because they're very sort of human
1:31 pm
like they want to feed and they walk with their flippers out and they look like they want to be picked up but. thank you so much we're going to leave it there thank you for joining us today on the stream from penguins we move on to some of the world's sinking cities and one of those jakarta indonesia this video is filmed by a massive scale of the sinking cities project take a look. jakarta the second largest urban area in the world could soon find its own on the sea levels rising globally many other campuses cities with a similar friends. so right now we're standing on the north jakarta sea wall. on my right hand side is the java sea and on my left hand side about two metres lower is north jakarta is
1:32 pm
the land of jakarta and this part of jakarta subsided has sunk so much that if i stand on the other side of the seawall i'm exactly two meters tall and i level with the boats the holes in the boat on the other side. if this civil were to break and it's already leaving us a few spots above forty percent of jakarta would be flooded to a depth of one or two metres it's quite a bit hairy situation the people. in fifteen years eighty percent of jakarta's northern part of the land. jakarta is one of the fastest sinking cities in the walls and researchers say that if it's left unchecked parts of it could be fully submerged by twenty fifty the sporting mega-city it's home to more than ten million people right now it is sinking at an average rate of one point five centimeters a year and it was half of its area sits below sea level so what is making jakarta and other major cities like it sink victor cohen is
1:33 pm
a project manager of the jakarta coastal defense strategy masterplan and indonesia representative for women being a boss a dutch engineering consultant and jeff goodell is a contributing editor for rolling stone magazine and author of the water will welcome to the stream gentlemen i want to start with a video comment we got from marston who shot the film you saw just a few minutes earlier this is what he told us about what it's like in jakarta now right now the only thing that thanks this is the jakarta from the sea there's a. wall that's about six feet tall. about two feet wide and it's looking my response. was quite frequently overpowered by the. storm see. what's not generous of this is that flooded so victor what's causing
1:34 pm
jakarta to sink. actually it's over use of ground water and you've got those basically pumping itself in and into the earth. used to be a city above sea level large parts already two or three make us below sea level and it's going to cost you will set and interdiction to meet us. every which ignored in jakarta seven ahau sent this year seven alshon to meet us and we have sections where we measure twenty said to be just per year so this is it alarmist rate and very difficult to keep up with insistence jeff if you think looking at cities around the wealth of a sinking and studying them is quite close then writing an. epic books about them just to white castle up should we be terrified that this is happening. well yeah we should be terrified in a kind of thoughtful way i mean it's first i was really important point out that
1:35 pm
jakarta sinking is. not typical of the risks that cities face around the world and they have a particularly bad problem of subsidence and other cities like that us have had problems with that also in new orleans because of coast but the real problem for cities around the world the real thing to sort of be thinking about is rising seas because when you have in cities like chicago where there are obviously where there is thinking and you have right i think sees even worse for cities like miami and new york and london then you know the netherlands many places around the world rising seas themselves are a significant challenge. so based on that jeff we got this tweet from jose because he tweeted out your article about miami and jose says you don't have to just imagine this visit bangkok jakarta or no it's a new normal for these and other cities around the world rampant development and more powerful monsoons are making the situation unmanageable so he goes on to tell
1:36 pm
us how people are adapting he says my impression from southeast asia is how the people have adapted their daily activities primarily shifting the work schedules to avoid rush hour already congested roadways turning from perth parking lots to wading pools when the storms roll in of course that is not that bad yet in miami but do you think people are shifting their thinking to think about adapting. well they are starting to shift their thinking you know i spent a good amount of time in lego in nigeria and looked at some of the people living on the water there and they're very adaptable but the real problem is. the amount of infrastructure that at risk in cities like miami for example that the textbook plays. that are not adaptable you know you can't just pick up all those you know multi-million dollar hotels that are built along the beaches on miami beach there's huge amount of homes in residential condos and things that are built in south
1:37 pm
florida that are at risk just when i when you have i know you're talking i want to show it if that you want to shed on you will try to find it is one just that pretty much explains why right the water will come and explain what we're seeing. well one of the cameras there is is a basically you know an inundation model of what miami looks like today when you see all the white and then as you see the blue flowing and that's with seven feet of sea level rise which i sort of the high and what we might imagine will happen by the end of the century and you know you can see that miami as we know it today basically is gone. and so you can think about it taishan with floating structures and things like that but when you have that kind of inundation you know adaptation is is very expensive very complicated and what's really going to end up happening is a kind of retreat from away from the coastline. but i want to share with you this tweet
1:38 pm
we got from i am chuck wal-mart he says many people think the theory of sinking cities is not real if only they could still be alive by the next century is it too late for jakarta and other cities. luckily we are quite know with this and as human beings as specie show we find ways to survive also in a city like jakarta. very resilient here. so i'm not. doing today guy but at the problems are really serious and we should address them. and i wonder if it has enough. get enough attention from the chanst because it's a creeping problem it's a slow slowly developing problem. most politicians would like to act on the daily issues and you're doing something about it tell us about your project
1:39 pm
. well we are trying to find a strategy for the short term and the long term. for security. that is now finished and we are a stage one basically a greeting existing infrastructure adding two and a half meters to all the sea walls in the city i think except in stations it's it's . immense it's in our billion us dollars just for a great deal of the existing system and that is not. sustainable i mean in fifty years and i'm not a. great required so these are expensive expensive and if they exist a story to check back in on for the stream thank you victor thank you jeff will be following this topic now from thinking cities to the twenty eighteen global heat wave regardless of where you live it's impossible that you haven't been affected by the record breaking weather of this year this is hanna and he's
1:40 pm
a member of our community from somalia and this is what he sent us clomid in just affected my city in my county and serious problems of thinking from the gulf to flooding. seventeen there has been seen as the focus of the world tens of thousands of love looks as the mist from in season has missed. those little bins policemen some of them solicit from the homes it's ahead of write down all of this weather we have rob mccallum he's a meteorologist here on out is here of course you know that but it is really good to have you you must be inundated right now with people asking you why is it so hot and what do you say yes. well yeah yet there's a flurry of activity just last week because if you look at you fired for cause temperatures in spain for example forty eight fifty degrees now the highest temperature record in europe is forty eight so this was this is a bit of funny this is chasing hot weather where you have hot weather the never
1:41 pm
achieve the forty eight but one thing that was notable was a very warm eyes that this beer you know warm nights this is one of the biggest problems of a land based heat wave just one of them and maybe it's not surprising that you find that in spain but as you probably know yeah the questions were why is it so warm in northern europe even beyond the arctic circle to texas maybe to to penguins be the second one of your guests to say i don't see the reason why i can tell you this is unusual thirty degrees in the months could for example. heat wave of course that's beyond the arctic circle it extends all the way down through to denmark the british isles so we've had poor potato harvest in belgium as a result of that there's been a. herd of drives and this is part of the world of course sweden had one of the worst wildfires they've ever had is basically sitting up i mean that we can explain i suppose the mechanism this is a big heart if you think about it is a big hot rock underneath which sand scandinavia sits and around which see this
1:42 pm
thing down and me suggest what will that means is all the weather all the rain is going around the edge and this is just sitting getting hotter twenty four hours was the daylight after all so rob we got this comment here from him that who sent us that video comment and he tweeted then this is a totally new phenomenon we need to think of nationally affordable cooling strategies i remember east to reach around forty three degrees celsius in northern regions of my country and it's never caused such problems do you agree that this is a new phenomenon that we're witnessing here. well it is clearly new in the if we're breaking records that implies it doesn't apply it means it's never happened before and it's not so much that you just break a record of years this is the longevity of it i mean to see that effectively lasted more last two three four five weeks and prevented rain that's the common thing that's the thing you don't really want just that's the consequence if you like of this and you know that's unprecedented and up this line since records began eight
1:43 pm
since the records began saying could we not as i just well writing down the idea of since records began it's a specific date that we're talking about. you make a perfectly good point that if you don't have a good string of records you can say this is never happened before this will have happened before ten thousand years ago i wish we do have ways of getting records that far back ice cores for example but analyzing the gaps in rocks you can get a good idea of what it was like a long time before we wrote it down but actually there are records going back to three hundred years in all these northern european cities at the same place and reliable so you can judge against that so even from that it's just we did years ago said it's a good time that humans have been in this part of the world and we've beaten up where we can go to next on the map of that take us on. well let me let me keep you going around the north of the arctic circle just because siberia this is a place where permafrost you would think would soften
