the scientific studies they teach by the scientists that predicts that the earth can be made essentially uninhabitable from nuclear war the scientists have been baking the a bomb and straight while they were inside baking but they've made multiple requests to meet with them discuss these predictions because they're peer reviewed studies and they've been turned down over and over again they've been peripherally told that well we don't think the long term environmental consequences are nuclear war all that important if the immediate effects of nuclear are don't stop it but the long term environmental consequences of a nuclear or a liable to wipe out the human race in one exchange uclear exchange between the u.s. and china. could be the consequences well let me just give you an example of what

one chinese for five megaton warhead would do to a city in the united states forgot through. the detonation of that weapon over a city would instantly ignite about six or seven hundred square miles on fire. and within twenty to thirty minutes all those fires would colas into a single gigantic firestorm or be no escape from it so all the people there would perish so the u.s. with say hundreds of. nuclear weapons on chinese cities well when you combine all the smoke from these nuclear weapons detonating it actually creates millions of tons of black carbon spoke all rise above club level into the stratosphere it's heated by the sun and sacks like a solar collector and that's smoke because of that will say there for ten years or longer and what the smoke does is it blocks forming sunlight from reaching the surface of the earth. and it becomes so cold in a matter of just
2:02 am
a couple weeks that will the temperatures will fall below freezing every day for one to three years. and it will become too cold to grow food crops for at least ten years or longer. i mean this is like a total disconnect with the changing world you have a giant rising power in this case china. why would you expect the giant rising power to not want to have more control over its destiny what we should be doing in my view is trying to cultivate a sense of friendship and cooperation and we can have our differences with them if we think they're doing something in trade that we don't like let's have it out with them but this saber rattling is the worst thing we could possibly do was the time

a dozen possible bombs sent to prominent critics of the u.s. president. of all the sports including. those that u.t.a. finals campaign ends in tears u.s. open champion retired due to injury in her concert match with to keep britain. assembled prosecutors demanded the extradition of eighteen suspects from saudi arabia over the murder of journalist jamal khashoggi pressure is mounting on riyadh to reveal the location of ulti a journalist vanished off to entering the saudi consulate in istanbul more than three weeks ago well it's president. called on saudi arabia to come clean labeling its only explanations childish and comical he also urged the kingdom to reveal the identity of its local cooperator you saudi officials say helped dispose of body
2:11 am
also one that touch investigators will be revealing more evidence related to the killing jamal khashoggi fiance has also spoken publicly in her first television interview since the murder took place traffic reports. so on this is a journey should. be cagey what happened on october the second says the turkish t.v. graphic walt with their last words together why was jim. gave her first t.v. interview since her fiance was killed in the saudi consulate on october the second . eggnog a bunch that he was very happy indeed on the basis that he was writing there because his close friends including other journalists and intellectuals and now in prison so there was a certain moral responsibility he had taken on he used to say the fact that i'm an
2:12 am
american isn't just about me writing for the washington post i'm rushing things my friends and table too. in terms of details there was little in the interview we don't already know but i did you did mention that although they were both nervous about the show she's appointment on october the second she said that he had told her consulate staff had treated him well during a previous visit on september the twenty eight so by winning because shows he's confidence had a trap been set it's been more than three weeks since jamal khashoggi was last seen alive in turkish president rajeev dhawan is ratcheting up the pressure at a meeting with ruling party members he said he believed that at least someone among the eighteen men arrested in saudi arabia implicated in the killing of the shorty must know where the body is he mocked and sweat and the saudi leadership blaming them so he says for not cooperating with the investigation enough to be. pushed
2:13 am
up of course there's other information and evidence we're holding that will be used when the time comes but no need to rush because saudi officials have to say who killed. they made certain announcements which gave us considerable concern their explanations were quite comical but childish excuses do not befit a responsible state or responsible statesmanship. the saudi prosecution said on thursday that on the basis of information shared by the turks it is now investigating. the saudis say they don't know where these body is and insists the crown prince muhammad bin solomon had no role in his death saudi arabia's chief prosecutor is jew in turkey on sunday but on friday evening off the president had repeatedly called for saudi suspects to be tried in turkey the country's justice ministry submitted an extradition request to saudi arabia for the eighteen
2:14 am
arrested men the senior turkish official told their this was requested because jamal khashoggi was murdered in turkey by saudi nationals who travel to turkey for this specific purpose in his speech earlier earlier ones message was clear he said if you can't make them talk then send them to turkey and we will put them on trial here charles stratford al jazeera is stumble well alan fischer joins us now from outside the saudi consulate in istanbul and allan a number of things happening today we heard from. fiance for the first time there's been this extradition demand and he was saying that there might be more evidence to reveal in the case what's likely to happen next. well who knows i mean that's the obvious answer we don't know what's going to happen next but we keep an eye on what president do one said when he says we have more
2:15 am
information that we can release particularly given that the saudi prosecutors heading this way and you in the country on sunday it wouldn't be against turkish ideas to push show some information over the next forty eight hours that would put pressure on him and also increase pressure globally and so that's something we need to keep an eye on over the next forty eight hours certainly president the one has never been quite so strong to see that what the saudis had said over the disappearance of jamal khashoggi was comical was very strong indeed and clearly he is upset with saudi arabia because he believes that they're blocking part of the investigation we've heard that before particularly over the last forty eight hours or so that when the turks have wanted to investigate a car or the well in the consul general's garden or even the garden itself the saudis have complained of put up red tape that made things difficult and so while they're telling the world that they're cooperating with the turks the turks are
2:16 am
actually seeing a lot of obstacles being placed in their way as charles was saying i don't think the fact that jamal khashoggi is fiancee said anything that we didn't already know but the fact that she was ready to face the cameras and give her side of the story quite emotionally times as well well i don't usually put even more of turkey's feeling on her side and that of the government as well so it's going to be an interesting forty eight hours we know that the justice ministry has compiled the extradition request it's been handed over to the foreign ministry here in turkey that then will be passed on to the saudis and they will demand that the people are handed over so that they could go on trial the reason for that the turks simply don't believe that when the prosecutor comes here he's going to present strong enough evidence that would allow them to charge eighteen people instead the turks believe that they should go on trial here and they've said there will be enter national observers to make sure that the world sees that the trial is fear and justice is done and out thank you very much and fresh air with all the latest from
