a cool is a lifestyle to be told at the end because he had no chance real choice in the matter you feel me you are no matter what is a well what if from anybody had a choice in his life we got pushed to the point well when we had no choice we had given you nothing to do we hear. a little bit of that and that's repeated again and again here to me is one of the few who's better to help he says there's just not enough money to tackle the huge problem still seems but lack of funding isn't the only challenge. it's worse than syria. and afghanistan every day it's shootings and killings in this community and it's not an outside force anymore it's inside and because this weapon tree is sore sensible now. you can go get our guard. troops. way we come to the center of chicago this is the postcard side of the city
7:43 pm
that many of the children from west side have never been. nothing hints of the problem areas that have existed for decades the well healed citizen lives here for the most part happy to leave the problem to the police. but on the other side of town two teenagers have just been shot from a passing car. i was there and my house and i heard a cry and shots and i knew mike years we dropped on the floor it was very scary. and i got shot in the ne. stay in the house they came come outside and play was very bad situation in a neighborhood that i have no money you know i would like to go somewhere else where i have more money in the. makeshift memorials for the lives lost last

7:45 pm
joy that my life was spent in jail and i didn't want to have to go through what i went to actually like a father to me that i met with because i never had a person but i always had a relative that don't do this. but they would never show me a different way how to do it they were not to do well how could i not do if you give me a different role. in courage desean to believe that they could be more to life even though it's tough to make it here that they need to give up on anyone easily he wants to provide a way out for young people and yet he knows it's likely to take many generations before there are equal opportunities for the children growing up here on chicago's west side.
7:46 pm

7:47 pm
like bruno mars. i am afraid of having a bad score on a test at school and. my mom and my. yellowed me. i have my sister her name is me a not a not a sister four and a half years old. we need to hear in school. i think it is the internet because there's both good and bad the bad it is it can make people crazy have problems with their minds if they use
7:48 pm
the internet too much and then they don't want to talk with anybody else. i go to school six and i come back home half past four pm. i think we have learned more than teenagers from other countries. today in global ideas we had to mongolia a country known for its vast expanses of open rolling grassland but this extraordinary landscape is under threat from overgrazing a potential ecological disaster reported on his face travelled to his dying national park close to the country's capital to find out what's being done to protect asians steps. the mongolian state
7:49 pm
can see in finnish. the grasslands here offer a perfect temperature for rare plants and animals. this stamp is home to mongolia as wild horses almost extinct. only a few years ago this is the only place they can be found in the wild. it's also a paradise for dia along with hundreds of bird and insect species. but these are deal exceeding deceptive outside the two thousand take tears of the who stein national park and other protected areas this is what the mongolian step looks like. dry sand only spots vegetation whatever grass remains is shrunken and dried out increasingly the step is turning into desert for years timid or chipped as assad has been researching this
7:50 pm
development for the united nations he has no doubt about the cause. he says there is simply too many sheep and goats in the grass exposing the soil and giving it no chance to recover. almost fifty million animals graze on mongolia's grassland. or in certain places from our times or more. to get the number of grazing animals down to a sustainable level u.n. stuff has proposed a grazing tax the more animals are her own ins and the worse the pasture land the higher the tax levy the idea is to encourage small herds. some livestock farmers own over ten thousand cows or goats. but
7:51 pm
not now and two year old she bought she and her family keep some eight hundred sheep and goats as well as one hundred horses and eighty head of cashel. she likes the idea of a grazing time. she says the grass is deteriorating from year to year. the number was when we go home in the autumn and winter the grass should be this high. grass is nowhere near as good as it used to be and that's mainly because there are more families or more livestock so the pasture is degenerating. or she bashes the spokes person for one hundred other herd of families she's done a lot to spread the idea of a pasture management tax. this is most of the herders are in favor of it as long as it leads to better feed and healthier animals.
7:52 pm
plus the tax that's collected should be spent on the herds and to improve the livestock sector and not go to the national budget. that's the only way we'll support temperature. orci bash would like to see the tax revenues used to improve veterinary services for the animals. and if the herds were to shrink in size and more feed were available then there would be fewer scenes like this. during a harsh winter millions of animals might died because they haven't been able to accumulate the fact reserves necessary to survive now and to your chibok has already had that experience in one region the un has successfully piloted an emergency fund financed by tax revenues the monies given to herd us to help them
7:53 pm
recover when their animals have been hit by drought severe frost or epidemics but some herders are against a grazing tax. more and i mean we have to have those yeah. and of course you went through on the political. many were really supportive. of them but i think again this is really sincere. the more stuffy the herders is is speaking in the ordinary headdress it doesn't speak oh yeah. grazing tax wouldn't help move a dodge son job anyway he lost all his animals during a particularly bad winter
7:54 pm
a few years ago. since then he has lived on the outskirts of the morning goalie and capital. boredom of part of. the countryside everything was nice. i was free and i was happy but i go to sleep it was great to follow my animals in the fresh air of the wide step. but in the city as we say we are all living between four walls i'm trying to come to terms with it because i'm getting older now. and it seems a bit of a dog says in the past families almost always leave together now he only sees his son and grandchildren once a week when they come to visit him his son owns a reasonable living in the city but he'll never drive a herd of animals across the open step like his father and grandfather did. between work and home i'm nearly always on the go i'm under so much stress
7:55 pm
especially with the traffic that's possible i leave town at least once a week i like being in nature and i really miss it some. stress and traffic jams that could easily be the future for an increasing number of heard of families . the grass one over seventy percent of a step is depleted if nothing is done experts say that an eight to ten years the country's sheep and goat herders will no longer be able to make a living. and wild horses might never again venture beyond the boundaries of the national park. that's it for this week do drop us a line day global three thousand d w dot com and check out our facebook page global society see you next time.
