change fight in poorer nations is role promises made in the twenty fifteen paris agreement but still there's no consensus a small group of countries including the u.s. and russia are refusing to sign on the u.s. delegation here is. in a way certainly protecting the interests of the united states i think their statements on the science have been. well just completely out of step with what is happening in reality and what is understood by the vast majority of countries scientists around the world. for more let's cross now to our correspondent maximally on a question who has been following the talks for us in quetta beaches tell us what's at stake here if no agreement is reached by the end of this weekend what i'd like to tell you i like to tell you that we'll always have paris as in the
11:03 am
paris agreement but that fact that's exactly the conundrum the negotiators here in qatar it's a facing that only three years ago or twenty fifteen in paris they agreed that they all want to save the climate together that they all want to not have global warming rise more than two percent of created industrial levels and what they're doing now in cuts of it's trying to decide how they're going to do that so they have to find rules they have to find actions how to do that and when we remember how complicated it was in paris to reach a goal like that it's now even more complicated to find out how they're going to do it. so what specific things are holding up this deal what's stopping them from coming to an agreement. what's currently being negotiated in cotta words and has been for example negotiated until the late hours last night until four o'clock in the morning and it's being negotiated still this morning is the so-called rule book this is a book that in effect should bring action to the paris agreement so this should be
11:04 am
the goals that each and every country can be held accountable for and in the book each country for example has to bring forward their own action so there has to be national actions that have to be agreed on and that cannot be vetoed by any of the other countries otherwise the deal is not going forward and there's also be like a general set of rules of what they want what they want to measure each other country on and these are finding joint agreement on these issues where nobody's disagreeing is the big problem here at the moment. this been a fair amount of criticism in the past two weeks about how these climate negotiations have gone what's the feeling on the ground that what are you hearing well of course we're already running a day late in cuts of it so they were supposed to find an agreement yesterday and now the mood is quite dive because people are saying you've had two weeks in this work conference to find a solution you have and this two kind of cams that are like criticizing these
11:05 am
conference moves on the one hand we have those climate skeptics who are saying we don't really care about anymore we're going to do our own thing for example brazil was just elected an outspoken climate skeptic like also narrow who campaigned against the climate agreement of paris saying they're not hosting next year's climate conference anymore and on the other hand we have outspoken climate activists who are saying we're a fact and by this change and we're not seeing enough action being done here cut of it so there is this kind of moot if these conferences are really still helping to bring forward a global action on climate protection. right like so many on akashic reporting for us from poland thanks so much. yellow vest demonstrations in france as well as the french police are preparing for another weekend of protests thousands of police officers have been deployed in paris the focus of violent protests over the last month demonstrates to say that life in france become unaffordable and that not being listened to and i knew in my home province as president has called for an

11:07 am
ransacking and looting are spoken to the best protesters who've come in from the countryside and they said that they are pacifists they do not intend to use violence however at the same time they're also drinking beer drinking alcohol so we'll have to see how the day over here certainly fewer protesters out at the moment than the same time last weekend. you said you've spoken to some yellow vest protesters and we did just see some live pictures there of paris tell me how do they feel about the tax and wage concessions that president president has announced have these made any difference to them at all. to sum it up what they told me was too late i said to them what about you know the increase to the minimum wage they said for the most part that will actually just affect one in four people it won't affect me i still struggle to sell to feed myself at the end of the month so then i asked them what would you like to see from the french police from the french
11:08 am
president rather and they said more purchasing power i said ok how do you want to see more purchasing power these are long term reforms tax the wealthy not just tax their property they want taxes on people with assets of more than one point five million so that's definitely a source of quite some frustration and some of the yellow vests protesters i spoke to said that they they this is their first time coming out twenty five thousand people are expected here for what is known as far as the fifth weekend they were going to come out previously but they were so disappointed by what french president emmanuel michel promised them last week that they said that they had no choice but to come out this time for the first time all right helena reporting for us in paris thanks so much. all right let's have a look at some of the other stories making news around the world australia has formally recognized west jerusalem as the capital of israel prime minister scott morrison said its embassy would move from tel aviv to jerusalem but not until
