9:00 pm
hello, i'm ros atkins, this is outside source. there's a new official line on brexit — it will be bad for the economy. and both the government and the bank of england agree that a no deal would be especially serious. lower supply capacity, weaker demand, a lower exchange rate and higher inflation. two opposing views on climate, as the eu sets out to become the first major economy to go climate neutral by 2050, brazil announces it will no longer host next year's un climate talks. the us secretary of state insists there's no evidence connecting the saudi crown prince to the murder ofjournalist jamal khashoggi — and rules out further sanctions. and the world chess champion, norway's magnus ca rlsen, has retained his title after a series of rapid fire wins — we have the latest on that. the uk government's own
9:01 pm
forecasts say the uk will be worse off after any form of brexit. here it is. that's right — the uk government is pursuing a policy that will make the uk poorer. none of us can remember reporting anything like that before. we've also got two forecasts from the bank of england today, which say under theresa may's proposed strategy, the uk economy will shrink up to 3.9% after 15 years. and leaving the eu without a deal, it's predicted to shrink by swipe and leaving the eu without a deal, it's predicted to shrink by 9.3% over the same period. the bank says the impact of no deal will be greater
9:02 pm
than the financial crisis of 2008. this is the bank's governor, mark carney. taken together the scenarios highlight that the impact of brexit will depend on the direction, magnitude and speed of the effect of reduced openness on the uk economy. the direction of the effects of a reduction in openness is clear. 0versupply capacity, weaker demand, lower exchange rate and higher inflation. in one worst case scenario, the bank says the uk's gdp would fall 8% in the months after brexit in march 2019 — compared to trends before the brexit referendum. the pound would fall as much as 25%, unemployment would rise and house prices would fall by around 30%. there's scepticism though. first this is the former brexit secretary david davis. in a desperate attempt to reverse
9:03 pm
the result of the referendum, we are undoubtedly going to hear the most hair—raising stories and improbable forecasts. the treasury‘s forecasts in the past have almost never been right and half more often been dramatically wrong. andrew sentance used to work at the bank. ‘does anyone really believe any of this as a real—world scenario? @bankofengland is undermining its credibility and independence by giving such prominence to these extreme scenarios and forecasts‘ here's kim gittleson‘s take on it. mark carney also said that the job of central bankers wasn't to hope for the best but to plan for the worst. so what he said basically was when he was making these projections would be other economists of the bank, they wanted to know what the absolute worst—case scenario was so they could say, i don't know,
9:04 pm
that things here in the united kingdom could withstand that if they had the equity on hand if this does come to pass. so that is why we're seeing these very dire projections and the interesting thing was that you know, the financial sector will actually probably be ok and that is at the bank mostly pays attention to. they cannot control the fate of the uk economy, they can only react to what happens. one of the difficulties here is what the bank of england is comparing these projections against. because it is increasingly hard to know how the uk will be doing if the vote had gone another way. it's really interesting, so you have the chart up from the report there, but you missed a line because it showed what the trend would be for the uk economic growth had the vote not even happen. in fact, that would have shown that the economic growth would have been significantly higher. they have shown that there is a decrease in economic activity than what they would have projected from 2016. so we have already seen that there has been
9:05 pm
in economic impact, the question is what it will be going forward. the got two reports today from the bank of england is wealth from the current government. they both show that, no matter what scenario happens, there will be an overall decline in economic activity, but, they don't say that economic growth will not happen. itjust won't be as great as it was projected. just quickly, david davis says some of these forecasts have a terrible track record, that they don't at too much. that they don't add too much. is that reasonable criticism? well, i do want to say that the bank of england and the treasury were very, very, very strong in saying these aren't potentially happen to economic activity at any of these scenarios happens, there's no deal, a canada style deal, a norway style deal, so these are not projections, not forecasts, they are just their best guesses. theresa may's withdrawal deal with the eu will be voted on by mps on 11 december. here's laura kuenssberg. the prime minister is desperate to get her deal to parliament, but right now at there are dozens
9:06 pm
of tory mps and all the opposition parties think they're just not going to let that happen. so i think without question those people on theresa may's side are going to say look, you risk no deal by voting down her plan, just look at what might happen. there could be enormous economic turmoil. the political reality though is many people on the side that hate the deal, who don't want this to happen, we'll stick their fingers in their will stick their fingers in their year and say, we've heard this all before. ear and say, we've heard this all before. yesterday theresa may was in wales and northern ireland promoting her brexit deal. today she was in scotland — which voted to stay in the eu in the brexit referendum. here's the bbc‘s scotland editor sarah smith. the scottish first minister hasjust told me that she thinks the prime minister is trying to deny reality if she thinks he can sell this brexit deal after her on government's figures show that would leave the country worse off.
9:07 pm
the prime minister was here in scotland trying to deliver a positive economic message and she said that her deal will protect scottish jobs and scottish businesses. it is clear that the snp will seize on this economic analysis and similar to the one and similar to the one by the scottish government as well to try and persuade other opposition parties to join them in wanting to keep the uk inside the eu's single market and customs union, which they think would mitigate the economic damage. the opposition labour party have begun to signal there could be another way, by having a second referendum. here's john mcdonnell speaking to laura kuenssberg earlier. we wa nt we want a deal that will protect jobs in the economy. we think we can. but that is not possible, we'll be calling on the government to join us be calling on the government to join us in be calling on the government to join usina be calling on the government to join us in a public vote. but that is the
9:08 pm
sequence us in a public vote. but that is the sequence that i think will inevitably go through this period. inevitable, if the vote of no—confidence, it is inevitable to use that word, inevitable. if we cannot get a general election, the other option is on the table to bring it to a public vote. theresa may has already hit back ‘today we see what really lies behind labour's approach to brexit. jim pickard, chief political correspondent at the financial times says, john mcdonnell telling @bbclaurak @polhomeeditor kevin schofield at that website politicshome.com says ‘senior labour source insistsjohn mcdonnell‘s nick erdley by westminster is this or isn‘t this a significant
9:09 pm
shift in labour position. a firming up shift in labour position. a firming ”p ”p shift in labour position. a firming up up that position, which is basically saying that if the prime minister does not get her deal through, they think it‘s almost inevitable, but after that, they push for a general election. they don‘t get that, the wording of the poster was anything is on the table. but anything specified was being on the table is another public vote on the table is another public vote on the terms of brexit, with the option potentially of staying in. yes, do you know what, he saw the sun inevitability, but the labour party have been fighting really hard to make that position or hear that think, were almost there. it is not taking labour and think, were almost there. it is not taking labourand a think, were almost there. it is not taking labour and a new direction, but it is getting more confidence to those who have been fighting for that position, the belief that it
9:10 pm
could be coming. and it is not to the labour party, there are a lot of people in the uk parliament on the snp benches, where pushing for us at the moments, where having talks behind—the—scenes, strategizing to make it happen. some conservatives are involved in that as well and for them, the belief that it could get them, the belief that it could get the labour front bench on site, it will give us a lot of confidence. give us, and a little confused by theresa may‘s decision to go around the country, when it is a boat in parliament. can you help us understand the prime minister‘s strategy? she wants to sell the strategy quite frankly. she is hoping that by travelling to areas like northern ireland and scotland, she can win people over and put pressure on the
9:11 pm
mps, she thinks quite frankly that the people at the uk have had enough of this debate a despot politicians to get on with it and this is the best deal on the table. i‘ve got to say, from hanging out in parliament today and speaking to some of the mps will be voting on this, it does not seem to be making all that much ofa not seem to be making all that much of a difference. there are some mps who think that theresa may will be better off spending her time in the tea rooms and the bars in the house of parliament tried to persuade her own mps to get on her side if you wave i’s own mps to get on her side if you wavers from other parties, rather than doing press conferences around the uk. can she get this through? look, nothing is certain in politics, he used that term inevitable, i would not say anything is inevitable. it is very hard to see that if she can get the number on the 11th of december, the number of mps she needs to back deposition, to make this thing sale. she‘s going
9:12 pm
to make this thing sale. she‘s going to try, but it is an uphill battle. big announcement from the european union on climate change. it wants to be the first major economy to go climate neutral or to use the jargon net—zero. and it wants to do this by 2050. what that means is that after 2050, any emissions of greenhouse gases must be balanced by planting trees, burying gases underground and other measures that help counter—act the emissions. scientists argue that net—zero by 2050 is necessary to keep global temperatures under 1.5 degrees above pre—industrial levels. dammian grammaticas has more. brussels. there are quite a few different strategies being put forward, but they all involve switching energy
9:13 pm
production to renewable sources, largely be it calls to electric vehicles, making buildings and industrial processes much more energy—efficient and getting people to change the way they behave in their daily lives. and changing things like land use as well. yesterday this un report that detailed the first rise in emissions in four years. and how most of the world‘s wealthiest countries aren‘t on track to meet their commitments on emissions. the eu‘s climate chief called that report a "wake up call". and said "if we do not lead, no one else will". he‘s got some of the eu member states on side. ten of them including denmark, sweden and spain have written a letter asking for a clear direction on becoming carbon—neutral. but poland and germany are expressing concern about the impact that emissions cuts will have on industry. here‘s damian again. this is all going to go to the eu
9:14 pm
member states and there are differences there. germany is struggling to shut down its nuclear power stations. 0ther struggling to shut down its nuclear power stations. other countries which will face major industrial restructuring our all agreeing to this, but i get to do so. —— have yet to do so. as well as these developments, one of the most important climate conferences since the paris agreement in 2015 is starting on sunday. it‘s happening here in one of europe‘s most polluted areas — a coal—mining region in poland. the idea is that countries thrash out a set of rules to further implement the paris deal. don‘t hold your breath. poland says a miracle is needed to find agreement. remember the context here. president trump has taken the us out of the paris deal. and frequently doubts climate science. here‘s an interesting bit of an intervivew he did with the washington post. he says he‘s not
9:15 pm
and they say it is caused by human beings. president trump‘s got allies. jair bolsanaro is also a climate sceptic. he‘s has abandoned plans for brazil host un climate talks in 2019. there‘s already been reaction to that. a environment—focused group in brussels has said he looks much more in line with the
9:16 pm
american president then the european union. julia carneiro is in sao paolo. what is this justification? he what is thisjustification? he only ta kes what is thisjustification? he only takes office injanuary what is thisjustification? he only takes office in january so what is thisjustification? he only takes office injanuary so this doesn‘t come from him formally officially it came from the current government from the current administration of worn affairs, and it was due to budget restrictions and government, the event would not be hosted by brazil and therefore the country was withdrawing the offer to host the climate talks. however, it seems obvious that this is due to bolsanaro hotspot election
9:17 pm
of president because two months ago, the current government was celebrating the fact that it was going to present itself to host the climate talks saying that this was the signal of how important this issueis the signal of how important this issue is and the consensus and brazilian society that urgent action is needed to tackle climate change and also because it is very clear what his position is when it comes to climate change, he is a sceptic, very much aligned with us president donald trump, a very strong anti—globalist rhetoric, he threatened to withdraw from the paris agreement as well, but he held back for now, but under his government, there could be new threats to environmental holocene and environmentalists are very
9:18 pm
worried about this. stay with us on 0utside source — still to come. we‘ll bring you today‘s business news, including new zealand banning chinese telecoms firm huawei from its 5g network over security concerns. as part of her push to get her brexit deal through the commons, theresa may has been in scotland today talking to factory workers and trying to allay fears about the future of the fishing industry. a free trade area with no tariffs, no fees and that will mean an opportunity to carry on the trade that is so important to companies like where i am today. but it also gives us the opportunity to negotiate trade deals around the world, it‘ll be good for great scottish exports, like scottish whisky and salmon, smoked salmon, and of course what i have also seen
9:19 pm
today is the importance of this deal for employers and organisations across scotland, employers at the national farmers union of scotland and also scotch whisky association have all said that this is an important deal and have all raised the concern about the prospect of no deal for scotland. so this is a deal that is right for scotland and right for scottish fishermen. this is 0utside source live from the bbc newsroom. 0ur lead story is? the bank of england has warned that leaving the european union without a deal would hit the british economy harder than the financial crisis a decade ago. a court in sri lanka has remanded the chief of the defence staff in custody for a week. prosecutors accuse him protecting a naval officer who is the main
9:20 pm
suspect in the abduction and murder of eleven young men during the sri lankan civil war. he denies the allegation. in the democratic republic of congo a further 19 people have died from ebola in the past five days. that brings the total number of deaths to 241 since the outbreak began four months ago. what to make of this. this coloured explosion in 2017 was supposed to reveal the gender of a baby — this is a thing to do in the us. this though started a week—long wildfire in southern arizona that caused $8million of damage. the man responsible has been sentenced to five years‘ probation. markets in the us have surged in response to comments jerome powell the head of the federal reserve. you can see the rise in the dowjones — that‘s after he hinted there may be fewer rate rises going forward.
9:21 pm
remember, president trump‘s been critical of increasing interest rates. injuly he said @realdonaldtrump samira hussain in ny. by by the looks of things, they feel the same way as president trump stop they‘re not going to see as many rises in the new year, but next month there is a meeting and by all accou nts month there is a meeting and by all accounts evelyn is expected to see a rate rise, going and the federal reserve has been on the receiving end of criticism from donald trump, you mentioned that even as early as this week, we have heard criticisms
9:22 pm
from the president with regards to the federal reserve, even calling the federal reserve, even calling the right to interest rates as one of the biggest threats to the us economy. thank you very much. i expect the chinese telecoms firm huawei‘s been banned from the roll out of 5g mobile networks in new zealand — over security concerns. there have been similar moves in the us and australia. celia hatton explains. united states first raised issues back in 2012, but there‘ve been concerns about huawei for a long time now, huawei was started in 1987 by a former general of the people‘s liberation army, a member of the chinese military. and they are a long thought to be connections between the chinese state security apparatus and huawei and while huawei has consistently denied those claims, there are always concerns that look, no company can become that big as the world‘s largest telecom equipment maker. it can‘t become that big and rise up in the chinese economy without having quite close
9:23 pm
connections with the chinese government. the norwegian, magnus carlsen, has won the world chess championship for the fourth consecutive time. these are the pictures from start of play, there you see mr carlsen arriving to play his american challenger, fabiano caruana. he won the first three out of four planned tie—breaker games against him. during the third game, caruana resigned as it became clear that mr carlsen, who‘s known as the "mozart of chess", would win. here‘s carlsen after the win. it was very close. he is a very strong player and i am very happy that i want, just have a lot to work on. and, you know, next time i have to. after a record-breaking 12
9:24 pm
on. and, you know, next time i have to. after a record—breaking 12 games that ended up in a draw, which is how he ended up with a rapid—fire play, arguably the best woman to ever play chess, she has been commentating alter the championships. i spoke to her a bit earlier. it was extremely exciting as we're discussing it yesterday, we're going to see such a hard day today and the box that they are playing, the world champion against the challenger, and actually it was extremely chance, and game one it was crucial. because in the opening key was surprised in the early stage of the game, and then in the middle game, there were some interesting moments there that he went on the challenger and in the world champion was at some point, really spending a lot of time out of his 25 minutes, he spent eight minutes on one single
9:25 pm
move, but then he made the right decision and the challenge it got lost in the forest and he lost the first game, which cost him the whole match because it was extremely difficult for them to get over such a lost my first game and then only having ten minutes before starting the next game. which also meant that —— went really badly for him. suddenly damn the world when the whole world was playing such close attention, and i‘ll end up such close attention, and i‘ll end up in such close attention, and i‘ll end upina such close attention, and i‘ll end up in a draw, is going to be some, still the world champion, i‘ll speak in couple of minutes. more extreme
9:26 pm
weather to look at this evening and as is one place to start, australia, yesterday i‘ll stone to start, australia, yesterday i‘ll start you begin ata australia, yesterday i‘ll start you begin at a month‘s worth of rain, flooded roads, flooded homes, travel chaos and lots of flights were cancelled, that storm system was pulling away from the satellite picture, the cloud was heading out to the sea, but we have also seen to the north to the north of brisbane, a lot of buyers, both within and intensifying in sydney, and the fires were described as catastrophic. the winds are dropping and we have to find a storm moving away from the sea, heading towards new zealand. server somewhere like this, it‘ll be very wet over the coming days, and into the day by contrast, sydney looking a lot like there more rain to fall in the next
9:27 pm
few lots of sunshine and she did quite a bit warmer as well. temperature is rising in the united states, but remains very cold for the first suitable future the northeast, we‘ve had a lot of snow in eastern canada, that storm system should be pulling the snow away towards nova scotia, but it does stay cold. we need to look elsewhere to see the next big impact in storm and this one is coming into california, much—needed rain on thursday for southern california and some snow into the mountains that could extend to the desert southwest, but the time there‘s tropical air bringing some flooding to the mississippi valley. we will see some rain in vegas, the temperatures are going to drop as the wet weather clears through, turning colder and the in the pacific northwest. we have had more rain in the past 2a hours the previous four months, it has been
9:28 pm
very cold at this part of turkey. towards the northwest in the uk, weather has turned, winds picking up and rain moving in as well, and areas of low pressure bringing wet weather and pushing it up into scandinavia, where he got colder air in some snow in the mountains, that colder air still in the northeast of europe, the court pushing down towards the balkans and the balkans and the blackfeet, coming in on thursday, but the rain keeps going in the eastern mediterranean, that means the likelihood of flooding as well. in the uk, we‘re heading into the winter and there will be more details later in the programme but staying windy, staying several of the most of us, should be mild. hello, i‘m ros atkins, this is 0utside source. there‘s a new official line on brexit — it will be bad for the economy. and both the government and the bank of england agree that a no deal would be especially serious.
9:29 pm
lower supply capacity, weaker demand, a lower exchange rate and higher inflation. two opposing views on climate , as the eu sets out to become the first major economy to go climate neutral by 2050, brazil announces it will no longer host next year‘s un climate talks. the us secretary of state insists there‘s no evidence connecting the saudi crown prince to the murder of journalist jamal khashoggi — and rules out further sanctions. we‘ll be live at the great barrier reef — as a huge attempt to regenerate it gets under way — it‘s being called ‘ivf‘ for the reef. we are hoping we will speak to a scientist live on a boatjust above the reef. us secretary of state mike pompeo has briefed senators on the murder
9:30 pm
of the saudi journalist jamal khashoggi. and he spoke afterwards. ido i do believe i have read every piece of intelligence coming in the last few hours at cigarette it all there‘s no direct reporting connecting the crown prince to the order of the murders ofjahmal khashoggi. mr pompeo has also written this article in the wall streetjournal today. he denounces "capitol hill caterwauling" against the us—saudi relationship. he‘s aware the senate is expected to vote soon on whether to dramatically scale back us military support for saudi arabia — — both because of jamal khashoggi — and saudi arabia‘s involvement in yemen. the senate is controlled by the republicans — one of their opponents is senator bernie sanders. he said yemen was the biggest humanitarian disaster in the world. all of that was caused by the saudi
9:31 pm
led invasion of yemen three years ago. led by a despotic, led invasion of yemen three years ago. led bya despotic, dishonest, dictatorship. to my mind it is imperative today that the united states senate tells us saudi arabia and the world that we are not going to be continued or continuing to be pa rt of to be continued or continuing to be part of a humanitarian disaster. we know senators had asked the cia‘s director, gina haskell, to be there. she wasn‘t. "the most persuasive presence at today‘s security briefing remember, us media reported that the cia have concluded that the crown prince was involved. here‘s the analysis of andrew desiderio, from the daily beast.
9:32 pm
lets under standards bomar. barbour is live for us in washington. the democrats talk about taking action what do they actually mean? there area number of what do they actually mean? there are a number of things. first of all there‘s a resolution that is coming to the senate which would force an end to us military assistance to the saudi led coalition fighting the war. they came up in march and was defeated into me back again in a climate that seems more likely for it to pass. we‘ll see how that plays out but that is one area where there is bipartisan support. so the other areas that democrats and republicans have there is bipartisan support for these moves may want to suspend arms
9:33 pm
sales to saudi arabia until things you meant change and they also want broader sanctions against the saudi government than the ones that the administration has already levied. they have sanctioned the 17 people and frozen their assets and people within the inner circle of the crown prince and the think congress wants that to be done more broadly and strongly. how does the power structure work in washington we had a president that highlights how much money america makes up from arms sales and a congress which may want to reduce that? there will be back—and—forth i think. 0n issues such as arms sales congress does have some say and they have to approve for military sales said they can hold of sales and they have done so in the past so i can have influence there. they can also legislate that sanctions to be imposed the violations are found and it they have done that with an act
9:34 pm
that ties the sanctions to human rights violations and calls from the white house to look into that so some of the bank sanctions imposed have been under that act. they can ta ke have been under that act. they can take various measures which the white house would need or should follow but there are limitations of course and so for example if this motion to withdraw us military assistance to the saudi led coalition passes then that the bill that could always get vetoed by the white house. what congress wants a do or the critics of the trumpet administration want to do is that they want to say this is us policy and we are unhappy with the white house and their emphatic support for the crown prince even though it‘s believed he ordered the killing of khashoggi and we are unhappy with the war in yemen. he wanted to say from congress that this is the american policy. next — australia — where thousands of residents in queensland have been forced to flee because of bushfires. also, in sydney, a large storm has caused flash flooding. these are some of
9:35 pm
the latest pictures. this is an enormous wall of flames in queensland — absolutely terrifying. and these are the floods in sydney — a month‘s worth of rain fell in two hours. lots of cars got caught up. the fires though are the main concern — there are almost 200 burning at the moment. you can see their location on this map by the queensland rural fire service. here‘s a firefighter explaining just how dangerous the situation is. these are unprecedented fire conditions. there are no surprises here and we expected fires to be developing rapidly and spreading very rapidly. that's not what is
9:36 pm
unfolding and catastrophic fire danger has been declared. they deliver leak called the catastrophic danger rating because of the impacts and consequences of fires burning under these conditions and they are catastrophic. i spoke with the bbc‘s georgina smyth just a short time ago. think of the further north you go the more trouble it becomes in so many of the fires occur in the southern parts and so the more north together more humidity comes and the wet the foliage is. it‘s harder to spread. the fires began see on the map it looks like we have got hundreds affecting the coastline and it‘s important to say that a lot of those are actually manageable and will be let to burn themselves out. the two fires the biggest concern of the fires affecting residents at the beach and communities there. as the
9:37 pm
fires that could become out of control and they can become emergency situations as we have seen in evacuations there. given that they are not used to it doesn‘t have they are not used to it doesn‘t have the necessary systems in place to handle what is happening withjoe australia has a huge system in place to respond but traditionally new south wales and victoria andy sullivan states there experiencing the ones that are a very bad bushfires. this probably going to be concerned for the services to be prepared and things that clearing drains with dead leaves and cutting down trees and having an emergency bushfire plan in place of the sort of things that communities that are at risk of bushfires difficultly told to prepare for. at the time of yearfor told to prepare for. at the time of year for this but not for this part of the world at all. a chinese scientist who claims to have created the world‘s first genetically edited babies has defended his work. here‘s a clip from a conference in hong kong. we should say this work
9:38 pm
has not been verified — and that work of this nature is banned in most countries, including china. the bbc‘s srobin brant was at the conference. the bbc‘s robin brant was at the conference. an audience of experts listened and question. they were polite but unmistakably hostile and the big worry is transparency. he said an hour inside there, defending work but he was light on detail and that
9:39 pm
is problematic. he did reveal that his work is the review but several experts but did not give names. he said chinese law meant he could not say the names of the parents of these two girls or where they live but there was one intriguing revelation and he said there is another pregnancy and very early stages involving embryo his team has genetically edited. this seems to be a hugely significant but highly controversial scientific breakthrough at its epicentre questions about the ethics of this human intervention. particularly the scientist who helped create the technique the team used. highly inappropriate. irresponsible and something that should not have happened and certainly not in the way that it appears to have been done. i think that it‘s incredibly disappointing to see the technology employed in that way and made by
9:40 pm
collea g u es employed in that way and made by colleagues of the working hard to prevent this kind of misuse of the technology. it's taken the team just three years of carrying out work like this and change the dna in embryo before it becomes a baby in womb. crucially it‘s yet to be dependently verified. this is all we know of them. the doctor is under huge pressure to hand over his work so others can check it to confirm that this really is a startling scientific first for china. kathleen mclaughlin is a journalist who has written on this issue. montana. thank you very much indeed for your time. is it reasonable to say that there is less regulation of doctors in this area that we might see in many other countries closed it‘s a much more coveted situation
9:41 pm
andi it‘s a much more coveted situation and i think the history to all of this is important to understand what happened. we have china at which up until very recently did not have a lot of cutting edge science into the last ten years chinese government has made his visit to pour money into science and become one of the leading countries in the world is any other burgeoning upper—middle—class in terms of money into failing health system were looking for new and novel solutions. you have a tonne of money at stake and a tonne of prestige at stake and then yes you have this backdrop of ethical and regulatory frameworks that are not as strict or potentially as binding in the uk or the us. and whether it's politics or human rights or freedom the us. and whether it's politics or human rights orfreedom of the us. and whether it's politics or human rights or freedom of speech we have the chinese very resistant to any advice on the outside world. do we see something similar with regards to how it goes about
9:42 pm
science? i don't think so. one thing china has in trying to become a global power in science has done his work at a lot of scientists from around the world and most chinese scientists will readily and a willingly adhere to norms and ethics and it‘s just that the science communities are low but different that way. i think what there is is the potential for, and that way. i think what there is is the potentialfor, and you have arty seen widespread condemnation of this doctor and his research and what you‘re seeing here is the potential for someone like him to go road and do this on his own. it‘s been condemned by top level sent china and how will they react with mac it will be interesting to see this. perhaps we can talk again about it. thank you very much indeed for your time. ina thank you very much indeed for your
9:43 pm

great barrier reef. australian scientists are undertaking the biggest and most complicated coral regeneration of the great barrier reef. for the past 24—hours researchers have been catching millions of coral eggs here off the coast of cairns — and they‘ll use those eggs to grow new coral larvae. scientists call it "ivf for the great barrier reef" — and, if it works, it could help save dying coral across the world. the project is timed with the coral spawning event, which happens once a year. as you can see, it is spectacular. colonies — at the same time — release tiny eggs and sperms from their gut into the water. but that‘s only step one of the project. next scientists have to catch the eggs and sperm tiny coral will grow inside them for about a week. when the larvae is ready then it‘ll be introduced onto the most damaged parts of the reef. we spotted this countdown clock.
9:50 pm
the coral is supposed to stop releasing eggs once that gets to zero. well katie chartrand and professor peter harrison are the lead researchers on the citizens of the great barrier reef project. they‘re actually on the boat on the reef. thank you very much to both of you. peter, how‘s it going? thank you very much to both of you. peter, how's it going? very well at the moment. we have gone for the first time in a week with paul they made the crossing from the reef which is very captured the last night with a particularly healthy pa rt night with a particularly healthy part of the reef still intact. have come across the reef this morning and that‘s where we will employ probably millions of embryos of the sperm that are born must lay into very large pools and will raise them for next week. tell us more about how you introduce this into the pools. 0ne how you introduce this into the pools. one of the practicalities? the challenges are big but we have a

large team on board the vessel this 50 of us here today. it requires a lot of manual labor and so a lot of ha rd lot of manual labor and so a lot of hard work getting that larva gently into those containers over the reef system. peter, how long do you have to wait until you know if it worked or not? we will be able to monitor the health of the larva of the coming days and when they are developed but these warm coverages begot at the moment maybe five or six days, the ideas use a series of different mechanisms to put them back into targeted areas of the reef and they are very severely impacted by the 2016 and 2017 mass bleaching events and so we had to literally targeted this reef because we know it used to have spectacular corals and now they‘re relatively few on there. the process is to go and put there. the process is to go and put the larva back in the certain areas of the reef and then start to

monitor them as a settle and grow. we‘ve been talking the programme of the fires in queensland related to the fires in queensland related to the high temperatures. this temperature is together event more likely? at this data still be monitored and there is extreme concerns over potential developing further this year which would indicate we would have further warming in the oceans and especially in the following months. not immediately in this delay in the lab due to the warming the water and as a buffering system there. we have some time before these events would start ticking plays around february and march and so for now we're really focused on getting these settled onto the reef and monitor their survivorship over time and a great test for us and how this technology and innovation could handle future warming in the future. i‘ve only got 30 seconds but a must

ask before you go it must hardly be moving? the shots are so still. yes, asi moving? the shots are so still. yes, as i said, would have had horrendous weather for a while now and as i said, would have had horrendous weatherfor a while now and in typical coral spawning fashion to calm down committee. this particular thunderstorm all around as we did not know whether rain want our endeavors but we have brilliant weather on the reef this morning and they make a very exciting. we take catch a brief couple of weeks to see how it has gone. there‘s peter and katya live with those of the great barrier reef. the finishes today and back tomorrow at the same time. a lot going on with the weather at the moment and wind and rain sweeping across the country. what hope of anything quieter and the ten day outlook will stay with me and i will tell you. the short term

how far north that will get it wear optimistic it will clear fairly quickly on sunday to lease a bit more dry and brighter still with a scattering of showers and this temperatures pretty mild in the south with rather chilly further north. by the time you get to monday the details of the forecasts do come the details of the forecasts do come the more uncertain and it is range is hard to say that they was a ramble turn up and when what there will be rain in the forecast of some brighter cells as well and is temperatures of seven to 13 degrees. the pattern continues as we head deeper into next week and more frontal system is pushing in from the atlantic if you are with me this time yesterday you may remember me talking about high pressure building up talking about high pressure building up in the south and settling things down. well, there are still some higher pressure in our forecast but only temporarily. it looks like the jet stream will then break back bring further wet and windy weather from the atlantic and with that we continue to see a split in our temperatures and for chilly in the north and a bit more mild further
