right to disagree with the government legislate as it sees fit it's an inference the government says that is not for the courts to judge we should actually start by recognizing that the pro gay she was a proceeding in parliament which falls within the ambit of article 9 of the bill of rights and they don't have to get. the government will hope of course that the supremes court upholds the english high court's decision that the prorogue a sion of parliament was a purely political not legal matter but the court could just as easily side with scottish judges who'd ruled that under the circumstances they could get involved because they said of the real motive behind the suspension of parliament the silencing of m.p.'s over breaks and it was a decision that in effect meant boris johnson had lied to the queen. away from the courts there are sometimes questionable efforts to reach an. new breaks a deal the e.u. had demanded full written proposals from the u.k.

armed groups the stream is next with a debate on whether we can actually stop climate change to stay with this 5 and a half. we are told to recycle up cycle and down cycle we're told to ditch the straws and forego plastic cups and we reiterate to our kids the rinse and reviews montra but can any of these efforts really prevent climate change i mean ok and i really could be valid today our coverage of the covering climate now initiative continues with the debate around the climate crisis should we stop pretending we can prevent it
4:22 am
but are we really pretending that that is the debate so tweet us your thoughts or leave your comments and i live chat and you can in the stream take. hello my name is you know. i'm an activist and you are in. a recent essay in the new yorker by american novelist jonathan franzen sparked a viral argument online about climate change here's what it said the climate apocalypse is coming to prepare for it we need to admit that we can't prevent it as you might imagine that didn't sit well with a lot of people including climate scientists which friends and is not and a twitter storm ensued the debate centered around prevention adaptation and conservation it's an important conversation who is ultimately responsible for preventing climate change and is it even possible joining us to discuss this in new
4:23 am
york genevieve gunther she's the founder of end climate science that's an organization aimed at starting conversations about the impacts of climate change in vail colorado on main coney he's a peace and climate change activist who also ran for the u.s. senate and congress of the green new deal in colorado and in north carolina sarah peach a senior editor at yale climate connections and author of the ask sarah climate advice column however what it's good to see let us start in fiji with perhaps a little glimpse into the future have a look at this video. i'm going to go in the middle of the guardian i'm with the result. my job is to dig. even snorkelling. before feed the. big no more to i mean there's a. lot of. relief we're starting to.
4:24 am
and started to. this is a big problem. amazing really. as he's talking about the possibilities the future your climate activists and the eco hasn't given up quite yet have you no not at all this matter of fact tomorrow i'm at a climate story march and i'm going to be speaking there are i think set worked we're all here for what we all agree on is affect the climate change is real the discussion is real and i'm here to talk about the solutions because what the scientists avoid out for us is that we have 11 years and i would say that we've already reached their point in time it could be 5 years of could be one year but we have to start acting about solutions now and how are we going to get our leaders and our politicians to start putting them implementing those changes of media. jenny it sounds like honest discussion ok now we have to do stuff we have to be
4:25 am
pragmatic scientists move aside what's your response. well i'm not sure you can have as i have a summer i need to yes i don't think and besides i think he's saying that in fact has got to convert says we need to unite behind the science and band together in order to force the people in power to take the lead and make the public investments that need to be make so we can decarbonise our global economy in time to halt warming at a manageable level. i'm just wondering sara as. available to people to ask the issues that they have we have climate and climate change if you'll detecting a mood or an attitude where are definitely people who are trying to get some on says i feeling depressed and feeling that there may not be hope and there may not be an end to climate action where i can actively do something. absolutely i have
4:26 am
gotten questions in the past few months will there be famines and where how sick will this make me and also i just answered a question a great column about it from a person you know in new york city was extremely worried about this she was wondering whether she should even bother thinking about her retirement from her career later in life because she was so afraid of what is going to happen with these issues so how do you answer them how do you answer the above for my retirement. i. there is a lot to be worried. that there are also things. and it's not time to get. and because there is a lot to be worried about that is what this conversation really seems to be currently and has been for the past couple of days i would say. the question then is what do we prioritize do we prioritize adaptation or do we prioritize prevention
4:27 am
and trying to stop climate change from moving forward this is one answer we got from someone online the bear on twitter who says both should be done but i doubt if it can be done equally it seems as if we have gone too far for preventative measures so in my considered view adaptation should be prioritized wherever possible and prevention wherever possible are and i want to give us one to you because adaptation of course comes 1st that her answer there what's your take on that should we be trying to adapt to what we know is coming. well you know the the scientist and the i.p.c.c. the intergovernmental panel on climate port to knock over changed my life 4 years ago aren't for u.s. senate and the green don't deal with iran at it again now because of the sun race movement because no consensus we have an entirely different kind of perception and it's from the center and we're seeing 7 hours of presidential climate forums on
4:28 am
this topic we have to have a multi-pronged approach what i think is very important is that we have they have set a goal 'd that doesn't again it doesn't matter if it's 20302050 if you could measure it you can manage it we've got to work inside of their goal and what i've seen as a person who was a county commissioner for 8 years and have worked in and really leaned on a lot of politicians a lot of the new your liberal politicians and democratic establishment politicians those there's no such thing as the time for incrementalism i would say delay or certain ayers and that is the conversation that we should be every more 8 now because what the scientists have laid out for us is the goal what we are looking at knows which way should we do that you can absolutely not prioritize adaptation yet adaptation is 100 percent necessary for these frontline communities and for
4:29 am
people in the global south who are already suffering severely from climate change and even being killed as we know the bahamian islands were completely destroyed by hurricane dorian who was startled and made wetter by the effects of climate change so in order for there to be any kind of climate justice we have to include adaptation in any kind of climate policy but there is no adaptation to a world that has heated up past $33.00 or 4 degrees celsius 4 degree celsius is the difference between the last ice age and now and the last ice age there was a. glacier a mile thick over manhattan so imagine the eco system a transformation that would happen if we heated our planet 4 degree celsius on top of what we are now we cannot afford to do that our 1st priority must always be to end the fossil fuel era transition our energy industry transportation and
4:30 am
agricultural systems to and net and 0 system as absolutely a soon as possible and that's exactly where i'm going with this is how are we going to end the fossil fuel era when you have people like senator schumer and senator and congresswoman pelosi who won't take on the green new deal who continue to take money from the fossil fuel industry and we watch the media ask questions about whether or not we're 'd going to lose or embers the time this is you know in order to get off of fossil fuel and that's why i would submit that we have to go after the leadership or the lack of leadership that is going on right now and make them make the hard decisions of whether or not they're going to say they're willing to ban fracking but they're willing to step to that it was done so if you know whether or not that only right and i mean what they're going to put this 16 trillion dollars or 5 trillion dollars genevieve this week and then twitter that in order to
4:31 am
bail out the banks of course 16 trillion dollars bernie sanders deals out in 16 trillion dollars we have the money we don't i'm just going to keep this will take opposing a preference my way and not i'm actually getting to use my osc sarah line we need international community is what to have you know much else. well i mean to completely it would involve getting rid of all hostile fuels wherever and also taking care of it we're basing it on the us. proposal that's been put out it would also mean taking care of people who have been harmed in the process of getting rid of his philosophy ewell's and of course that would take enormous collaboration across the whole world but. we've seen from some resistance for example in france that it really seems very important very
4:32 am
democratic leaders and other leaders around the world to think about how people are going to be affected by this enormous transition that the scientists say must equinix well some of those women stray chanson fran it's interesting to hear that but if you have a pulse just one moment if you would because i want to bring in our community here this is such a fascinating debate i want to make sure their voice is included as while i'm picking up on the point that you all are making and it is if there is collaboration global car collaboration and if there is government accountability call our audience skeptics and me included that they don't think that's going to happen so this is mercy on twitter and says as long as our governments refuse to hold major corporations damaging the environment accountable and they start putting major resources towards trying to reverse the damage we're doing there is no hope with the amazon still burning our decade has gone up so she mentions mercy mentions the amazon i'll bring this here tension the amazon is burning what you need to know this was the headlines not too long ago another fire that many people may not have heard as much about was indonesian fires forest fires talking southeast asia we got
4:33 am
a video comment from someone who this directly a factious in indonesia and she talks about what life has been like for her have a listen. land and speaking i went into my home as the place for the past 2 months and displaced by. killing people as happens to hit us so now i'm calling for justice for clearly and the but guess you'll have to get that so our hope that's that that's the thing that came up in that 1st tweet you see anyone talking to us from indonesia where it's affecting her life where is the hope to have hope what will i think i don't have to say something before this woman from indonesia weighed in may i please finish my comment i actually didn't way and i brought her in and it is that it is a conversation and so i would love to hear you think but i also want to hear our viewpoint on hope the let let let our finish his thought and then you can jump in
4:34 am
but i think i want to be a realist here and say i don't have hope i have kids and i've been fighting for this for many years i've been up to standing mark what i would say in terms of the person who weighed in hearers you should understand that there are millions of american several eyes that our political system is an oligarchy that we have oil and gas companies that are running our comfort right now and that there are people who are willing to get out into the streets who are willing to speak truth to power and we need more and more more of those voices and it's starting to happen tomorrow that people have to stop start saying that we have to stop subsidizing the oil and gas industry that we have to stop playing footsie with there are democrats who are in power who think that they're going to change the or help us with the bating climate change but in reality they're not because they're working with the oil and gas industry and one more willing to speak truth to power when we're willing to
4:35 am
expose their records then we're going to get to the next level of compose implementing change just to be if. yeah i want to go back to what you said before which was holding our government accountable and forcing them to hold corporations accountable is not going to happen i don't know why anyone would say that. in that sort of casual offhand way if we don't do this transition if we don't band together and use our collective labor power and our collective talents our collective political power in a democracy to force our governments to get carbonized our economies hundreds of millions of people or maybe billions of people are going to die so to shrug it off and say oh yeah that's not going to happen is not only a claim that is not based on any empirical evidence because you're making predictions about the future you're actually just treating the genocide of people
4:36 am
who had nothing to do with creating the climate crisis as something you can just shrug off and that's morally. toxic it's an abomination we have a moral obligation to use our power as citizens in a democratic nation and in democratic countries across the world to hold our leaders accountable because we cannot recycle our way 'd out of this crisis we cannot reduce our own personal carbon footprints and nothing to stop climate change the number one producer of greenhouse gases is industrial production of electricity and that is something that has to be transformed through public private partnerships and investments by governments that will make new technologies new grids and new markets then of the weeds let me just bring in sara as i hear what you said so you have been reporting on this area for a decade or so tell our international audience in terms of actual climate action
4:37 am
that you are seeing that is having an impact what would you pick to show. i would point to greater timber now and the center ice movement that's got a tremendous amount of attention. so we're going to united states there are some organizations that are working to organize people in every congressional district and you know i get this kind of question a lot from readers and from friends and family what's the most important thing that i can be doing you know should i eat less meat should i change my light bulbs and at this point my answer is it gets engaged in government study contagion is the number one thing that people can do as an as individuals to address this issue so political will on. well i want to just speak to this idea of why we're having this conversation why it's front and center because students said and nancy pelosi softness and center of president cortez got involved and because brianna going
4:38 am
right architected agreeing that he owen had painted it all made as in the united states and you'll find him in d.c. not far from the right and what that i'm sorry and what so what we're what i'm so stoked on is that we're watching activists actually doing sit ins actually getting into the streets were seen that type of action in france and we're seeing that and london the type of protests that are going on in hong kong that's what it's going to take those are the individual types of things that have been arrested in washington d.c. trying to fight for change and it's hard it's difficult it means amazing sacrifice what i'm trying to say is the type of sacrifice that needs to be done by 4 percent 5 percent of the world's population that isn't bidding 15 percent of its carbon emissions is we have to admit they kept lism is not going to get us to this
4:39 am
solution that we are going to have to use a hybrid version in order to make this change in the kynde to to to my friends in the science community that i embrace and try to advocate so are for every single day as they have given us a very short time frame that when i was running for u.s. senate 4 years ago and if we're going to implement this it's not going to happen under a donald trump but ministration it's not going to happen 134 states in the united states earn republican control 'd and our federal judicial branches and the control of corporatists unless we get out there and we didn't speak towards the type of solutions and demand the solutions are implemented in terms of legislation that our corporations are changing now in immediately and then they stop funding oil and gas or peroration than they ever cultural system. there are no employees that are literally cutting off my dog or money so it's future from the one that i have
4:40 am
and then my ancestry so so i'm. really right now i'm trying to think very realistic 'd 'd right now in states that mirrored appears to be sharper towards the solution is to search for search a lot. of streets and for it i think it's that type of thinking that i'm seeing online and so earlier genevieve you've mentioned a morally toxic viewpoint which for our audience and i think that they would take issue with thought and because i'm speaking on behalf of them i will take issue with it on their behalf i want to share with you a few comments from people so this is lie this is on you tube michael says greedy corporations and governments don't care about the climate period grow up we are going to be on our own other people want us to bring in the idea that the people affected the most are not the people who are at the table so this is a look we on twitter who says this is a mass made by 1st world but the most affected are the developing countries most of who depend on nature for irrigation etc and one more that i'll bring in on twitter
4:41 am
this is someone who says i like that you're putting in context location specifics while adaptation will be considered a priority the african continent for them 0 net it measures europe may have to focus more on mitigation and if you what will you say to those people i agree with all of that i take no issue with that whatsoever that countries in africa and in the global south who have had no hand in creating this crisis will need to focus on adaptation and the 1st world polluters have to. pay to take responsibility for creating this crisis and donate money through the green climate fund to assist in that taishan but that's not in contrast to focusing on global mitigation and i don't see how that's morally toxic what to me is a moral abomination is the idea that we shouldn't bother fighting we shouldn't bother trying to stop corporations and governments from collaborating in
