8:32 pm
need to change then politicians themselves and that it is very important that public opinions push their governments push their political systems to take the right to see how was he being told by the scientists how long to we have to say don't tell it much time we have probably 12 years 1112 years to change course if not it will be irreversible that we will not be able to contain the increase of temperatures at 1.5 degrees at the end of the century what is clear for me is that we absolutely need to rican syal human kind with nature if you look at history. history is full of examples of people fighting each other i think for the 1st time people are fighting the creation people are fighting mother nature so we need to recognize these and we need to change course your family man secretary-general when you think of your children your grandchildren and their
8:33 pm
future as this issue the climate crisis does it keep you up at night it's central in my life so the granddaughters. i have no idea how the world will be when they have they will have my age when they will be 70 the world will be completely different but when seeing is clear my generation is the obligation to allow them to live in a healthy planet and we are not feeling that obligation we are the striking the planet in which they will have to leave. a powerful message there from the u.n. secretary general and let's we compliance s.o.s. we're bringing you how politicians and the people they represent responded to his call now talking about the climate crisis can be difficult not just for world leaders but for many of us too but there is power in information and not just from us al-jazeera has joined more than 250 media organizations in a global initiative called covering climate now it's aimed at strengthening
8:34 pm
reporting of the climate emergency and will be sharing content from our partners throughout planet s.o.s. and need to initiatives like this one from the international red cross it's a new social media campaign called faces of climate change with plenty of suggestions on what people can do to end the crisis the largest climate protests in history millions of people in more than $150.00 countries joined what was truly a global climate strike the rallies on friday began in the pacific and asia inspired by youth but joined by people of all ages demanding an end to the climate crisis from kenya to south africa mali to madagascar young people let marches across the african continent and in the middle east large parts of europe were brought to a standstill including the city of london already the focus of months of climate strikes people marched in the americas brazil believe via mexico city and the
8:35 pm
united states culminating in a mass rally in new york led by the schoolgirl who inspired the global climate strike 16 year old gretta turned berg gretta became a global icon after an impassioned speech at the un climate conference in poland last year since then she's emboldened millions of students to hold protests every friday one of those she's inspired is climate at the lesson from kampala in uganda the 22 year old is in new york for the un's youth climate summit. i'm going to take the love and passion that these kids house the climate issues in their countries and take it back home to our country to teach and let other you know that it is our responsibility to fight and be mindful what's right should be ours now al-jazeera visited for nasa just before she left home here's her story. after school i wanted to build something that could cause change and impact was lights in my
8:36 pm
country through my research i got to find out about climate strikes by greater than bug. i started looking for climate activists our own africa but i failed to get one i said to look for them in uganda but i fail to get one so it was up to me to start the play amid strikes. i'm fighting for a better future for everyone a better future for my family for the citizens of this country for africa as a quantum net and for the citizens of this entire world i believe that through my strikes climate action can be taken by our government leaders and the public to train me to get their situation and revive the problem that we are facing great now i was invited by the united nations for the youth climate summit so i've been current got preparations i'm going to present my country and africa as
8:37 pm
a continent. climate change is real and dangerous for us all it knows no age and it knows no person if it is to destroy our life it destroys anyone so they should join the fight against the climate crisis. or gratitude burke wasn't the 1st young woman to take her fight to the global stage in 1227 colors suzuki's spoke at the u.n. summit in rio de janeiro or just 12 years old let's listen suppose cycles for drastic action. my dad always says you are what you do not what you say well what you do makes me cry at night you grown ups say you love us but i challenge you please make your actions reflect your words thank you. you say you love your children above all else. and yet you are stealing their future in front of their
8:38 pm
very eyes. until you start focusing on what needs to be done rather than what is politically possible there is no hope. well 7 has gone on to become a prominent environmentalist and she joins us now from gothenburg in sweden 700 very good to have you on the show so very similar messages from children calling on the adults to take the action necessary to protect their future and yet 27 years in between how many times is this message going to have to be repeated well to be honest we don't have another generation to wait this time climate change is here climate change is happening we're well into the 6th mass extinction event and now the voices of voices of future generation are calling for intergenerational justice and we've run out of time this is it and it's incredible that the young people around the world are are rising up and demanding the adult generations to prove
8:39 pm
that they love their children so you sound optimistic and i hope for the mobilization today can really make a difference is that how you feel i'm a mother i have 2 little children i have cast my lot with the future and i have to believe that we we are we have a chance and of course we have a chance human beings are incredibly innovative i mean especially emboldened when i think about past mobilizations i think we can see that there is a real hope and real progress and real possibility so yes i am hopeful because i have to be what do you think the best way forward is to ensure the impetus continues to move forward and doesn't get pushed back again like in the early 1990 s. we need our politicians our leaders to implement different policies to level the playing field so we actually as a society can revolutionize and transform we have to get off fossil fuels this is
8:40 pm
a huge change in our in our way of human life and so we need infrastructure to shift we need infrastructure and we also need inspiration what do you think it is about these 2. young girls you and grettir which really made people sit up and prick up there is it's really amazing to me that people are still talking about a speech that a 12 year old gave at the u.n. 27 years ago people really respond to the voice of our children there's something about the clarity the voice the moral authority of children and youth that can cut through all of the rationalizations that we make for the destruction of the world and let's hope that the adults continue to listen thank you so much 7 it's been great to have you on the show thank you very much amanda will some much and has not been without consequence one of the memorable images from global warming protests in london in april as
8:41 pm
a protest to fill kingston eating his lunch on top of a train on his 18th birthday we talked to have him here on planet test the west but he and other extinction rebellion protest is a now awaiting trial for public order offenses. our planet is heating up largely because of all the carbon dioxide we're putting into the atmosphere so what if we could take it out it's a radical solution that's been around for decades but the technology isn't quite there yet it's we're talking carbon capture and storage all c.c.'s is al-jazeera is mariana honed with a look at whether this really comes save our planet. a number of companies around the world or at the cutting edge of carbon capture and storage technology will c.c.'s using machines to 2nd and then absorb c o 2 from the year using a range of chemical reactions different technologies but the same objective to pull a ton of carbon from the f a much less than $100.00 and lock it back in the us where it came from scientists
8:42 pm
say if we had to make a real danger in the cabin pollution shrouding our planet then cabin capture and storage technology needs to be deployed on a mess of and global scale problemas it uses a lot of energy and it's an economic there's just no money to be made in it sure burying the c o 2 back into the ground is good for the planet and for us but there's little incentive for companies including the carbon polluters to develop c.c.s. technology and iron out the kinks and for the entrepreneurs who are trying will they left hunting for cash to cover their costs. one possibility is for governments to subsidize the process through texan seem to or to agree on a global price on carbon pollution thing is to build a cabin kept it industry to the scale needed the price on carbon has to be high and many governments aware of the backlash from voters if it affects the cost of
8:43 pm
everyday goods which leads us to another possibility what if rather than storing all that waste carbon underground we used some of it to create things of value things that might even be profitable well scientists an entrepreneur. have been experimenting with just a bit how to convert it to cabin pollution into products like jet fuel concrete even food and as renewable energy gets cheaper using clean energy sources to ensure the different processes a gentle on the planet scientists agree carbon recycling can't replace carbon capture and storage this simply too much c o 2 out there but the benefit of cabin recycling lies in the market it creates for all that captured carbon a market that turns waste c o 2 into something profitable a launching pad for it to be deployed on a global scale what the world's leading scientists say is needed to keep our planet cool. so shift in the way we think about carbon from waste that pollutes the
8:44 pm
atmosphere tours also can be recycled for more mariana joins me in the studio rianna so it sounds that recycling is the way that we're going to be able to take this technology forwards exactly caballe recycling alone one fix the problem of carbon pollution a number of the recycled carbon products like jet fuel will simply put the carbon back into the atmosphere so the real appeal is in developing the market for that waste c o 2 turning it into something useful and incentivizing industry to be able to double down on developing the technology to the point it needs to be to reduce the amount of energy needed to convert it to another of a yield enough c o 2 to make it cost effective and then deploy it on a large global scale to be able to deal with the huge amount hundreds of gigatons of c o 2 in the atmosphere and yet you do hear despite the uncertainty at the moment you do you hear a lot of people talking about these solutions are right away emissions and it's not
8:45 pm
it's not it's not even close there are politicians with their own agendas there are some in the fossil fuels industry who are trying to paint carbon capture and storage technology as the answer as a way of cleaning up duty energy and there are power plants factories which are capturing emissions but they're a tiny fraction of those that are pumping out c o 2 and it's nothing like what is needed so what is needed how much carbon to get we're going to have to capture let's take a look at the scrap here you can see it's from less and it gives you an idea of c o 2 emissions over time and you can see under the line the gentle rise and fall of c o 2 right up until 950 and then it rises to where we are currently sitting at around 400000 if we stay here we're in trouble that's catastrophic scientists say where we need to be is back down on that 350 mark now to get there the un's body on climate change the i.p.c.c. says we need to look at more innovative potentially radical solutions one of them
8:46 pm
is carbon capture and storage technology it has promise it's technology that needs to be developed along with many others so there's a lot of progress that needs to be made very quickly. thank you very much mariana for a deeper dive into potential new technologies take a look at climate hackers that's a program from al-jazeera is people in power series and you'll find it in the documentary section at al-jazeera dot com well that's what we've done but we also really want to hear from you even get in touch with us on twitter using hash tag a.j. planet s.o.s. there's a lot of climate data out there and it can be overwhelming but some data trends are simply more important than others and so we've created a data tracker setting out some of the big numbers and we'll bring them to you every week what's going up but which will hopefully one day start coming down next week we'll have the un's highly anticipated report on the health of our planet's ice and oceans and we'll take a look at what's needed to preserve these vital resources well that's it for planet
8:47 pm
