patients don't always phone 999 because they think york they have a life—threatening emergency. governor andrew so we probably see on average 19 or 20 patients a day and deal cuomo. with them and the gp will have time as far as for those more complex patients. he was concerned, we can speak to them and say rather racism, homophobia and bigotry were than put them in the back poisoning america and you can of the ambulance and take them, interpret those as being politically how about we get one appointed even he is a democratic of our cars to attend? governor and democrat governors mike is one of a new breed of prescribing paramedics, have one of the first five. accused president trump on numerous theirjob, where possible, occasions of causing divisions in is to keep people out of hospital. this country. it will be here, he is called to a diabetic patient with an infected wound. strongly denied by the white house and they so you are an insulin—dependent will point out even the last month, diabetic, yeah? president tom has signed an executive order to tackle he checks her medication and is able anti—semitism on college campuses and there has been a strong to adjust her pain relief so she can statement from him on twitter which stay at people had to say home. ——in which he said a less qualified ambulance team people had to say ——in which he said people have to eradicate the scourge might have had to take her to a&e. of anti—semitism but tonight there isa 0k? of anti—semitism but tonight there is a feeling that some practical has it was sore last night. to be done and the new georgina is helping take the strain off gps. york city mau her shift on this occasion has announced plans for extra is in a surgery, seeing a range of different security and policing in some patients. neighbourhoods as well as proposals with her new to teach about hate crime inside schools and perhaps that's an qualifications, indication that this is about she can write them

a man has appeared in court from over. in the us, after 5 people were stabbed at the home of a rabbi, dangerous fire conditions and extreme heat are in new york state — forecast for the governor calls it, "domestic terrorism". south—eastern the mayor of sydney, australia from says the new year fireworks display will go ahead as planned — tomorrow. despite a petition calling for it the fires are also having to be cancelled out a devastating effect on wildlife. of respect for those affected professor david lindenmayer leads by the a team of ecologists at the australian national university. he's in canberra, near the area ravaging bushfires. where many of the fires are the lawyer of a british woman whose husband and two children drowned in a swimming pool burning. in a spanish resort on christmas eve has just august through the impact said that these buyers are she having ecosystems may and the wildlife. pursue these are no an doubt unprecedented fires. in a0 years, independent i've never seen anything like this where we have a fire season in south—eastern australia which starts investigation. in september and is still blazing with me are robert fox — and we know that in east gippsland, on the border between new south the defence editor of the evening standard and ruth lea — wales and the courier, we will have catastrophic fire conditions today so the impacts on ecosystems is enormous. “—
11:12 pm
so the impacts on ecosystems is enormous. —— victoria. we are seeing places that shouldn't earn burning at high severity and the impact on wildlife is massive. which ecosystems 7 wildlife is massive. which ecosystems? a whole range of ecosystems. in northern new south wales, sub tropical rain forests that have been burned that really shouldn't be burned. east gippsland, in victoria, we are seeing cool temperate rain forest and warm temperate rain forest and warm temperate rain forest that shouldn't be burned but extensive areas of forest, woodland, native grasslands, burnt and burned at very high severity which is not always appropriate for some of these ecosystems. so why does this matter? why is it devastating that these ecosystems a re why is it devastating that these ecosystems are being ravaged by these fires? why should australia be worried? in some parts of australia, this is not the first high severity fire. some parts of the courier have had three, four or even five
11:13 pm
fires in the last 25 years so it is too much fire in these particular systems. yes, these ecosystems will recover but often the recovery will ta ke recover but often the recovery will take some time is up to 150 years in the absence of another fire but if that system is burned again and then again and again, that is too much disturbance and some of the species and ecosystems are simply not geared to deal with such extensive recurrent wildfire like we are seeing now. so what will be the knock—on effect? so you remove the ecosystems you have described there, what does that due to the balance of the climate and the environment? we know there will be very large emissions, greenhouse gas emissions from these extensive fires people should be aware that we are now looking at well over 3 million had tea rs of looking at well over 3 million had tears of australia having been burned. this is equivalent to perhaps somewhere like wales in terms of the scale of this. that is one of the big issues, the amount of
11:14 pm
emissions that come from these fires but also the extent of the change in these systems so for example, many of these forests should really be old—growth forests, 200, 300, a00 year old trees but the recurrent fire means many of those big old trees get knocked out in those trees are trees get knocked out in those trees a re really trees get knocked out in those trees are really important for a whole range of australia's unique biodiversity and therein lies a really big problem, the loss of not only rainforest as i said before but extensive areas of old—growth forest. you're talking about flora but what about fauna? what species are most at risk? we have seen pictures there of koala bears. just talk us through the risks. well, there are estimates that perhaps close to 10,000 koala bears have been lost and other people have estimated very crudely that perhaps 500 million individual animals have been lost through these fire events. that is an enormous loss
11:15 pm
of wildlife directly from the fire itself. having been directly burned. it also what happens is habitats change quite dramatically so many species that do survive the wildfire may not be able to survive soon after because their habitat is so extensively burned on the other issue in australia in particular is that many species are feral animals, introduced carnivores like foxes and cats, actually hunt specifically around these recently burned areas because they are much more efficient at foraging in those places so wildlife has to deal with not only the fire and the drought conditions but also the loss of habitat as well as the impacts of these feral animals so some species are really going to struggle as a consequence. professor, to close up this conversation, what is the human impact on the environment done to aggravate the impact of the bushfires? well, we know that not
11:16 pm
only is there an effective climate change on increasing fire how we've logged the forest in the past makes some of these forests more prone to high severity fire so therein lies a really significant problem because we know that forests, for a0 years after logging operations, are more likely to burn at higher severity. human disturbance does add to the impacts of natural disturbance so there are major problems in many parts of the forest, particularly in south—eastern australia and victoria especially. thank you very much for your time. the headlines on bbc news: a man appears in court after fivepeople are injured in a knife attack, in new york state during hanukkah celebrations at the home of a rabbi. the mayor of sydney says the new year fireworks display will go ahead as planned, despite a petition calling for it to be cancelled out of respect, for those affected by the ravaging bushfires.
