this is d.w. news live from but a late night breakthrough in the fight against global warming battle thanks to bill h. and those remarks i'm told some total wrap up for the rule book in full swing cuts to greenhouse gas emissions and helping coronations deal with a changing climate that critics say the deal just doesn't go far enough. also coming up spiritual independence in ukraine g.s. will still be a centuries old dream of creating
a united saddam's church independent from russia. is not a means to you and a new discovery from ancient egypt the tomb of a high priest from the egyptian royal court is opened up some more than four thousand units will take you to. a manuscript in the canon thanks so much for joining us. we begin in poland where marathon talks on climate change finally produced an agreement late on saturday nearly two hundred countries have unanimously adopted a rule book aimed at capping global warming below two degrees celsius the range of measures will allow the paris climate pact to become operational by twenty twenty the chairman of the climate conference in the city of kassovitz and called it a historic moment but skeptics say the facts of the rulebook is voluntary means
it's not strong enough to bring about real change. it is so decided. the motions were flying high after two weeks of intense negotiations came to a successful and late on saturday night the agreement is a complicated balancing act aiming to reduce global warming while protecting the economies of rich and poor countries alike. we have been able to put together a very strong set of guidelines in order to make the paris agreement for you so we are very satisfied as you may have heard are. really happy they are celebrating a very successful. but some observers say the package is flawed
the talks have been overshadowed by a report from the un body on climate change concluding a shift away from fossil fuels is needed to cap global warming most countries wanted the reference to fossil fuels included in the deal but the united states saudi arabia russia and kuwait objected leading to what critics say is a watered down agreement while i think the main culprits remain the fossil fuel industry while they remain the interests for these governments that keep them from having ambition i think certainly the fossil fuel countries here slow things down i think that the united states certainly did not help on the issue of having science move forward but there was just an overall lack of leadership from the european union as well on getting ambition. while the summit is being hailed a success for creating a transparent system for funding poor countries there will be no sanctions against
states that aren't making progress the rule book relies soley on peer pressure. to keep everyone on truck. the outcomes of these negotiations are far from embraced usually critics especially from countries most vulnerable to climate change are calling for a much tougher action to be on the agenda at the un's next climate conference and she lives in twenty nineteen. joining us now from london is george marshall the founder of climate outreach an organization that aims to improve the understanding of climate change thanks so much for joining us george off to two weeks of marise and talks negotiators have now finally agreed a deal how positive an outcome is this in your view. can i say that they always do this i mean this is positive the this is part of the drummer of these talks with a it looks like they are going to agree even male give them a do this kind of a hideous injury and sport for diplomats i don't sleep for days and they come on
say they have an agreement let's go let's all be fooled by the by the appearance of the drama of this is not a breakthrough because the underlying science does get more and more serious and as your reporter said the one point five degree report which came out from each governmental time in climate change could have been clearer that we have scarcely over a decade within which we have to make astonishing changes no energy mix definitely the absence of fossil fuels in the remains of the fighting but i think just generally the ambitions of a country has its reserves of miserably low in terms of the scope set for us by the sides and what was happening outside there in the atmosphere is just a little bit of a diplomatic goal it's a real physical tangible long. as you say this the science is clear why is this deal not more ambitious what is holding them back well of course we do have.
a vested interest in very very powerful economic interests and concerns and national concerns i think we've got a collective failure by politicians and also by the public to embrace the scale and elites of this issue both the challenges but also the opportunities for making the change i think we simply keep pushing it but she is now we've been pushing towards the future something which is going to happen somewhere down the line sounds bad but we're not going to think about we i mean it's very very hard for us to come to terms with this issue we have to i think we really have to. i think we're all in the form of clips of them all about israel's. marshall from flight out reaching london thanks so much. for you very much. all right let's have a look at some of the other stories making news around the world the father of a seven year old watching modern migrants who died after being detained by u.s. border agents is calling for an independent investigation officials say there was no sign that jacqueline calm akin had any medical problems until i was off to she
