to pull out your blockade is blocking our access to medicine and food. aid is desperately needed in a country which the u.n. has described as facing the world's worst humanitarian crisis twenty million people don't have enough food the u.n. humanitarian chief says all sides are making it difficult in some cases impossible to get aid to people who need it the central problem is that none of the parties are pushing the urgent lifesaving needs of the people of yemen hyun off on their list of priorities until that changes it seems difficult to imagine how diplomacy can bring this three and a half year long conflict to an end big touring. democrats in the u.s. house who have a majority from january are planning a complete review of u.s. policy toward saudi arabia including the trumpet ministrations response to the murder of damascus shoji. president has repeated his call for justice saying the
2:09 pm
case should be tried under international law to do undescribed saudi arabia's decision not to extradite eighteen suspects for trial in turkey as disappointing she had written c. has more from washington d.c. the house foreign affairs committee will have subpoena power so for example we've been hearing a great deal once again about the text messages between jared cushion and crown prince mohammed bin salman those messages could well be fair game now or indeed any of the business documents or any of the business transactions between members of the trumpet ministration and the saudis those two can be subpoenaed members of the administration be required to testify to congress all of that might be behind closed doors but we should be clear the closeness between the u.s. and saudi arabia didn't begin with the drop administration president obama pretty much gave the saudis whatever they wanted so what will be interesting and key is
2:10 pm
whether this really is a top to bottom examination off that relationship whether there will really os whether it's still in the strategic interest of the u.s. to keep things as they are. hundred sixty four countries have signed the first ever global deal to manage the mass movement of people despite strong objections from the u.s. and others. reports from a lot of cash morricone of the it's the moment millions of refugees and migrants have been waiting for a global agreement to better handle migration adopted by a majority of united nations states the deal is not binding but for the united nations secretary-general and turn your terrorists this is a significant achievement whether their movement is voluntary or forced and whether or not they have been able to obtain formal authorization for movements all human beings must have their human rights respected and their dignity. to the united
2:11 pm
these and to vilify any group of people is the road to deal my days ation and auto but the us which championed the push to protect by agreements during former president barack obama's time in office is now turning its back on the pact under president donald trump the u.s. italy hungary austria australia and switzerland all pulled out of the deal saying it compromises their sovereignty we think that this is a momentous significance because it charts a middle ground between the two groups that we have in the world today those who are adamantly against migration and those who are adamantly for it and neither can win so but but countries need migrants if they are to prosper and flourish we know that migrants enormously to the wealth of nations to the wealth of people i'm to the countries that they departed from as well the pact offers

a glimmer of hope for chair will. who comes from a family of migrants and raises into national attention on the abuse suffered by child migrants and refugees worldwide there's no need to be afraid of migration can be a positive experience in a safe experience from if we look at ads the fortune five hundred companies half of them have been founded by immigrants or children of immigrants if we look at the at their population migrates make up three point four percent of the population but they contribute just a little bit less than ten percent of the global g.d.p. migration has become a divisive issue over the past few years europe faced an unprecedented influx of refugees fleeing war in syria hundreds of thousands of ranger from myanmar are stranded in camps in bangladesh and there are thousands of africans risking their lives to cross into europe help him by grants and refugees was subtle go to school

2:15 pm
delegations and on the climate talks the focus on how to move away from fossil fuels and the clock has more in our special coverage. after the united states announced it would terminate its membership of the paris agreement beijing in china was quick to brand itself as a global leader committed to fighting climate change through green policy making the country has been investing heavily in renewables last year for every dollar spent in the u.s. on alternative energy china spent three but china is carbon emissions have risen since two thousand and fifteen coal still accounts for over sixty percent of the country's energy consumption a new coal plants are still being built adrian brown has this report. the economic machine that is china needs a vast amount of power to fuel its growth engine much of that fuel is coal. in order to meet the target for reductions in carbon emissions china's leaders pledged
2:16 pm
to move away from fossil fuels to clean energy even if it meant closing thousands of factories. three years almost that commitment is looking in doubt says one leading environmentalist the reasons slowing economic growth and worsening trade friction with the united states it is economy. is in a down cycle the growth rate is not as rapid as as before and then we're having facing a trade war. which having quite some psychological impact at least people are beginning to understand the government has a problem as it has you know they must keep pushing to reduce pollution but they need to consider the economy they can't rush too much but they also can't be too slow. three years ago i visited this steel town in sichuan province the mill had recently shot with the loss of sixteen thousand jobs the closure was
2:17 pm
partly blamed on a global steel blot but the plant was also a heavy polluter a symbol of the sort of industry china's government wants done with occasionally just occasionally you get days like this clear blue skies and you actually want to breathe none of this though is down to people burning less coal it's because of strong winds blowing in from and it provides a reminder of what beijing was once like just five days earlier though beijing was like this one of seventy nine cities where air pollution alerts were ordered but there is some good news to report sales of electric cars in china are surging in large part because of government subsidies to buyers globally more than a million evey's were sold last year half of them here. the technology is at the heart of president xi jinping signature economic policy called made in china twenty
2:18 pm
twenty five he wants evy car sales to reach seven million by then but these cars use batteries that rely on the electricity grid that still derives two thirds of its power from coal adrian brown al-jazeera beijing. welcome back you're watching al-jazeera time to recap the headlines now there'll be an emergency debate in britain's parliament on tuesday by minister through the maze decision to pursue a vote on her braids that deal e.u. leaders will meet on first day they say there will be no we negotiation. it is clear that this house faces a much more fundamental question does this house want to deliver bricks it i i
2:19 pm
i. i am not. clear a clear message from the s.n.p. but if somehow stars does it want to do so through reaching an agreement with the e.u. if the answer is yes and i believe that is the answer of the majority of this house then we all have to ask ourselves whether we're prepared to make a compromise because there will be no enduring and successful brics it without some compromise on both sides are today. the french president has taken partial responsibility for the anger that led to the country's worst on rest in decades emmanuel mccall offered concessions to pensioners in the work. but he stopped short of reinstating a wealth tax on the bridge to demand of so-called yellow vests protesters. top executive of chinese telecom giant

2:21 pm
stories generate thousands of headlines. separate the spin from the facts. the listening post on al-jazeera. hello i'm adrian finnegan this is counting the cost on al-jazeera a weekly look at the world of business and economics this week becomes the first country in the middle east to quit opec as a new dynamic take shape in the oil game also this week the dirtiest fossil fuel as un climate talks took place this week in a coal mining town and we'll look at why president of manual macross policies or so on popular with the yellow vests or movement. after nearly six decades of membership has left the organization of the petroleum exporting countries the gulf state says it wants to concentrate on gas production and that
2:22 pm
the move isn't political it's the first middle east nation to quit the oil cartel and the timing is significant to the high profile breakup happened during a key week for opec which is deciding oil policy for twenty nineteen zero a sum of in java reports. the world's largest supplier of liquefied natural gas is leaving the biggest oil cartel after being an opec member for more than fifty years but are says the strategic change is needed for its long term ambitions to produce more natural gas but there is one of opec smallest oil producers its main commodity is natural gas but the world's third largest reserves tensions between qatar and opec's largest producer saudi arabia suddenly increased and the saudis imposed a land sea and air blockade seventeen months ago but the government ministers say leaving opec is not politically motivated i don't want to politicize it i'm a very practical engineer i've been running kewpie for
2:23 pm
a long time the way i do business is really practical so we look at the world you know what is the value and. you know i like to focus on efficiencies always and i think it's inefficient to focus on something that's not your core business and something this isn't going to benefit you long term so for me to put effort and resources and time in in an organization where i'm a very small player and doesn't have don't have. you know seen what happens in that organization. does not work it's not been a great year for opec its largest members such as saudi arabia ramped up production while others have carried out cuts meaning the worst compliance by members in years opec is a bit like a family and it has all the good aspects of a family the closeness but it also has the best specs of a family which means the squabbles that all in like in families they all squabble
2:24 pm
and you all are sad when one of the cozzens think the sides to break rank but his departure comes as both houses in the us have introduced and the opec bills the so-called no pact bill has gained traction after the trumpet ministrations increased hostility towards opec if passed the legislation would pave the way for all pick members to be sued for operating a motor. as relations between saudi arabia and russia have improved iran iraq and venezuela have found it difficult to abide by wide it will pick decisions that there isn't the first country to leave opec but it is the first from the middle east raising questions about whether others could follow because house decision comes at a time when questions are being raised about who's really setting global oil policy there's a feeling that normal opec countries russia and the usa a calling the shots picks power of the oil markets was made very clear when opec oil ministers met in the end of this week that meeting was all about lobbying russia to agree to any production targets oil heavyweight russia isn't even
2:25 pm
a member of the cartel but it's been cooperating on production as part of the opec plus group meanwhile oil producers have been hit by a thirty percent plunge in crude prices since october as iran sanctions haven't taken as much oil off the market as expected over supply fears a back with a vengeance the united states is now the world's biggest crude producer and is pumping out a much better rate than expected joining us now from vienna is you have to spend any you have this is the founder and chairman of vienna based j. b. c. energy group welcome to counting the cost and it's good to have you with us so who is really controlling the world's oil policy at the moment opec and all the opec countries well i think opec realized some time ago that it's increasingly difficult to do it alone so they have lobbied the a-y. the group which is known opec plus and russia is playing an instrumental role here . of course those countries have a big care and they can remove for volume in the market but what we have seen is
2:26 pm
that when the price of oil is high enough you see a lot of response from the u.s. and so the u.s. shale supply right now is probably the most pressing issue do you think that with cattle with during this week the first middle eastern nation to do so that other countries will pull out of opec and we'll see more more countries outside the organization as part of opec plus. but then within it. it's very difficult to understand the russian oil for countries to be either in or not in the organization of course you can say there is a certain concentration of power with the bigger players they have something to say and their decisions have his huge impact but of course at the same time if you if you look on the small of numbers producing maybe two hundred thousand barrels a day four hundred or more those volumes down really matter so much when it comes to the end of the day it's always nice if you have more countries are part of it but why do they can contribute well opec is a research organization so having access to that research is maybe interesting for
2:27 pm
those countries but also i would guess having an international platform were the politicians can be seen to communicate and to be on the same level was politicians and public so overall it is you know there may be many reasons whether it's influencing the price of oil whether it's influencing the supply whether it's influencing the political landscape in your domestic home country or just to have an access to research i met me many reasons for that all right so what's going to happen now with the price of oil in twenty nineteen we have this oversupply problem ministers have tentatively agreed to a production cuts where will we go from here well first of all the production cut is necessary because there's quite a lot of surplus right now and it's not necessarily just because of the iranian story and the consequences but it is because a lot of supply is emerging from many other countries and on top of that's the
2:28 pm
biggest supply addition this year of course is to us and you may expect more to come from the u.s. in the next year so that means to stay on top of that i think that they will not try to push the prices back to the level that where they have been remember to last year prices were in the forty sixty range and only then prices really move higher. and i would expect that the price is now stay around sixty sixty five range and stabilize there yet it's really good to talk to your kind in the cross many thanks indeed for being with us thank you very much. the week began with news of a ninety day truce in the tit for tat us china trade war the world's biggest and second biggest economies agreed to postpone further tariffs on goods for three months starting on january first the pause however doesn't mean that the war is over big differences still remain on things like intellectual property protection something that a high profile arrest has made painfully clear the u.s.

2:31 pm
with president xi jinping at that diplomatic dinner in one of stories on saturday and if not why not last year another chinese telecommunications company said t e was fined one point two billion dollars in the united states over products it sold to iran and north korea but unlike that t. holloway has not so far been formally accused of breaching u.s. export sanctions still to come on counting the cost wholly. and high why bethlehem in the occupied west bank is seeing a record flow of tourists. but first who exactly will have to pay for saving the planet is a big question these days in france this week we see how low income drivers hit by fuel duty septic into the streets will get the situation in france a little later in the program but first let's go to poland where the u.n. climate talks notice cop twenty four got underway this week in
2:32 pm
a coal mining town it's a chosen location right on the top of europe's biggest reserves of the fuel wasn't an accident delegates have to breathe polluted air as they made their way to the venue that task is to create the rules to change the world's energy supply and change the planet's naturalist and broadcaster david attenborough had this to say when he addressed the opening session on behalf of the world's people might now we are facing a manmade disaster of global scale our greatest tragedy thousands of years climate change if we don't take action the collapse of our civilizations and the extinction of much of the natural world. it's on the horizon well this is the conference which is supposed to signpost the death of coal the most polluting fuel coal use accounted for forty percent of c o two emissions but the coal industry is still very much alive it accounts for forty
2:33 pm
percent of the world's electricity and millions of jobs worldwide something the u.s. government likes to highlight so there's talk of a just socially responsible transition the world bank group said on monday that it's doubling funding for poor countries preparing for climate change but then there's china the world's top carbon emitter a number one producer and consumer of coal ok it's trying to curb coal power and the deadly pollution but it courses at home but at the same time it's facing mounting criticism for bankrolling new coal plants in other parts of asia africa and the middle east as part of its one belt one road initiative. as robin wright reports now from myanmar where activists say mining.
