and china rushes to condemn main kong read it for what it deployed she disappeared on a trip called beijing says it's investigating him for bribe taking in corruption as his wife appeals for help. i don't welcome i'm a bit touchy ma un climate scientists have issued this strongest warning get on the risks of rising temperatures they say we need to take unprecedented steps to avert the was defects of climate change and that we need to take those steps now these include changing the way we consume energy travel and construct buildings the report warns if he fails to act we really feel more heat waves flooding and extreme weather. scenes like this could become more frequent if the world does not act now
7:02 pm
that's the message of scientists on the un's climate change panel whose job was to work out what governments must do to implement the paris accord of twenty fifteen first climate change is already affecting people ecosystems and livelihoods all around the world second limiting warming to one point five degrees is not impossible but will require unprecedented transitions in all aspects of society third there are clear benefits to keep warming to one point five do research just compare to two degrees or higher every bit of warming matters. the goal needs to be implemented by twenty thirty but scientists fear will fail to hit it one immediate effect of failure will be more global heatwaves the resulting droughts would mean poor harvests impacting the global food supply and harming countries that rely heavily on agriculture. in other parts of the world would
7:03 pm
suffer from an increase in heavy rains and hurricanes these weather patterns combined with rising sea levels could lead to more frequent and severe flooding the scientists on the un's panel say it's the final call governments everyone must act the message is over to governments at this stage we've told you what the scientific facts the evidence the course it is up to the governments know to decide what to do with it. avoiding scenes like this will be hugely expensive say the scientists but it has to be done and it's still possible if the world acts now. joining me now is a sagna dean she's the head of the environment desk welcome so on into what is different and so significant about this latest report. well with the person agreement countries around the world agreed to limit the temperature increase to two degrees or preferably one point five degrees of warming and it turns out that
7:04 pm
there seems to be a much bigger difference in impact between one point five and two degrees than previously understood and that's the finding of the city is the scientific body so we're talking about impacts on earth systems that we as humans depend on take coral reefs so under one point five degrees of warming they would we would still have coral reefs they'd be reduced seventy to ninety percent but they would still exist now if you take the two degree scenario coral reefs would be all but wiped out about ninety nine percent would be gone this report has said so consider the impact of this on the people who make their living off the sea their food security would be at risk it seems the upshot is one point five degrees is the new two degrees in terms of the global warming limit that we need to strive for and the boat is going to fall a legend to action as we had one was to say it's now over to the governments can the governments react fast enough do you think and is that the political will to do so. well what the i.p.c.c. report indicates is that we certainly can act fast enough there is still time to
7:05 pm
turn things around it lays out a road map for doing so so i think the question is really should be not do we can we do something but do we want to act on this despite the paris agreement there's been a stunning lack of political will on the part of governments we're headed for three degrees warming with current commitments and what many people are saying is that nothing short of a mass popular movement will be necessary for people to come together in collective action and demand that governments implement policies to change the system so that they exit poll leave fossil fuels in the ground collective action is a very powerful thing and really could make a difference and so did germany on the whole it has a very good reputation for its environmental policies yet today they've been protests also outside the german embassy in london what the activists concerned about. well i think it's more accurate to say that germany had a positive environmental reputation with its energy transition and merkel's leadership on climate protection but that has largely faded so now germany is
7:06 pm
struggling to muster up the political will for a timely exit from coal the absolute dirtiest fossil fuel and what the protesters are protesting was the cutting down of the forest for a gigantic coal mine one of the largest in europe so germany has given up not only . as is continuing to mine coal it's given up on its self-imposed goal of reducing emissions forty percent by two thousand and twenty which is not happening either so internationally many see germany now as it really having back slid on climate and energy issues. environmental task thank you very much for that. fara i have just bought a nano has won the first round of business presidential election grabbing forty six percent of the votes he now faces a runoff in three weeks time against the nunda hundred odd off the leftist ruckus party who finished a distant second well sonando attracted support with his threats to fight corruption and restore what he calls traditional values his opponents say with his
