2:03 pm
a communication lockdown the flow of information is basically a trickle of this mail that it coming out and people of course have not been able to reach their families back home so all of this media is outside the region are betting very watered because not only do they not know if their families are safe they're also not able to communicate with their families what they are doing and if they are doing fine or not just to get to the event down to a cost test indeed you have many people came out to protest the 3 seventy's so when it comes to what bushmeat is one for some of the demands are to walk this new auto about the special status and release the people arrested and also lift the communications blackout but this is what we heard from the bush meetings on the ground. nasir is on his way home. he does not know if he will be back because he does not know if he will survive. food if means a police under lockdown ever since india's the specialist on the most status the
2:04 pm
state has enjoyed for 17 years. on his way to the airport nasir stops by this protest held in solid data d. because. the last he could see days ago was that his mother was speeding and well he does not know if she made it to the hospital last words she said to me i'm not putting bells to morrow use my appointment to do so what i medical industry job and they're the model we pierce. the deployment of thousands of paramilitary forces are those so she called north texas she could not reach out with a doctor i don't know whether my family's alive or. not sit on the protestors have tea demands. it was the government's decision to lift the communications blackout. and release arrested local leaders. many young meets in delhi to work and study have joined in. they have had no word from home because we will never accept that
2:05 pm
this meat is not come that out of course our violent set up warning in except that we have nobody is to confirm whether it's true or not which makes us all the more anxious and worried for our families and the more the state will have to answer this someone like me was living dependently for 8 years now i haven't known the feeling of news for you and it's for the 1st time in that i'm feeling homesick but i want to go home because my parents don't know why i didn't turn up at the airport i don't know if they even to the airport to fetch me ok despite their own safety if they protest openly they don't know what else to do. as voices for and against the government decision to vote across the country mean itself is silent a complete clampdown on journalists and a communications blackout has meant that angle feel and frightening rumors about the safety of loved ones back home run rampant was ok it was the way out
2:06 pm
yet some scoff at these one claiming that he thought us against the government's decisions are anti a national and b. stress. this group pressure enough to shout down the protests against the government. quote those who are you to stop the government's progressive auto what is your intent is the isis funding you are anti india foreign forces funding you what who are you. as anger boils over on both sides medias are trying to decide whether it is better to mobilize protests here. or try to reach their families. for nasir despite the risks he knows he has to head home he has to at least try. to an initial as we saw in your report emotions are running very high about the situation in kashmir what can we expect now we hear that a prime the cylinder modi is due to address the nation today.
2:07 pm
well yes on with our emotions are running high across the sub continent pakistan has spoken about this action being illegal and it's perspective it was the beginning to the international community it has suspended trade. diplomatic ties with india but in india and this is what the my every can expect from the speech india has called this stand alarmist according to india this is not an aggression it's simply a move to integrate better into india and to provide more opportunities and development to the region so this is the india asked on sun it also claims that this provision the special status will stem put it to you which is why it has been drilled walked so this is what we can broadly expect from prime minister more big speech of course on the other hand we do not get nor hawkish media is a feeling the government has also claimed that bush meat is celebrating but again because of the blackout we cannot say this for sure more of course. makes the
2:08 pm

thousands to march in support of month the u.s. backed opposition leader won by the. new data has. been deforestation in brazil's amazon rain forest which is on 2200 square kilometers cleared in july that's more than twice as much as was cleared in july last year the officials who released the brazilian president. is on deploying the scale of deforestation. now millions more could go hungry if you don't change the baby farm that's the message from scientists from the intergovernmental panel on climate change in a new report on the research just say that since the late 19th century average global temperatures have risen by point $87.00 degrees celsius and that's helped create deserts degraded land and indeed get food security off the land area that's not covered by ice ravi's 70 percent is already being useful food production
2:10 pm
textiles fuel and housing and that's likely to increase if there was population continues to grow. so the latest i.p.c.c. report is also a course for action it says we have to change how we use our planet that's what the reports all to us in geneva had to say limiting global warming to 1.5 or even 2 degrees will involve removing carbon dioxide from the artmosphere and land has a critical role to play in carbon dioxide removal this german field is bone dry drought has again gripped parts of the country these crops will yield much less wheat than usual and a new report by the intergovernmental panel on climate change warns that dry periods like this will become more frequent and more intense. the mediterranean region and southern africa will be especially hard hit climate change is already
2:11 pm
here one result the quality of soil is deteriorating in many places deserts are advancing elsewhere rich topsoil is being eroded but more and more food has to be produced to feed the world's growing population this is a vicious cycle on the one hand farming produces the food that people desperately need but on the other hand it's a huge factor in climate change overall farming generates more than 20 percent of greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide cattle and rice production make up half of me think emissions a climate pollutant worse than c o 2 and human made fertilizers create 3 quarters of nitric oxide emissions it's a particularly potent greenhouse gas scientists are worried about how quickly the farming sector is growing an area 2 thirds the size of australia has been turned into agricultural land in the last few decades the i.p.c.c. says it's time to change otherwise deserts will continue to advance and hundreds of
2:12 pm
millions more could go hungry. and i'm joined now by another of the cool tools of the new i.p.c.c. report on climate change dr project for the han from the potsdam institute of climate change welcome dr bernard so do you think that lowering our consumption of need is one of the best ways of dealing with some of the problems raised in the report just. one of the responses ops and that we mentioned in our report is to change or die to have it's that means to go. plans plan as diets because what we find is. as resources use to produce steam and also meets it's pronounced which is harmful for our club so you have to 1st convince people to have less needs how does a stint operate but to the idea of eating more plant based have a more plant based diet than
2:13 pm
a meat based diet. one thing when you talk about dietary changes we all think that people had choices but when you look at local environment that might not be the case because our dietary habits are defined by our food environment so people have very less choices and their choices are constrained by the local stories so here this might be one of them is reason why people are resistant it's instant saying that to see increasing number of visitor in people in the western wall and there is since but. the resistant is like there is a limitation and individuals can do to change their attitudes because they have limited choices so using the mystically it's not a matter of choice in the coming years and decades that less need is a question that we have to do because of our limited resources but how do you explain to a living in china or in brazil who has now
2:14 pm
a countries which have become richer and people are eating the meat their rez the end this still eating much less meat and the west and what how do you tell them oh no we think it's all good for the planet that you eat meat so stop eating meat to eat less meat so one thing is like i.p.c.c. report doesn't make any prescription is it's more like a description and we don't be point and the countries who are not particular to go on that but what does see in a global trend is like with increasing income animals force food are high you can jump in many countries that's that's a global. and regarding consuming less and not serves food particular the need is is mainly coming from health benefits are supposed to be healthier it's better to eat less meat but but here it's not one eating less meat it's more about balance while saying balanced diet in some countries there might need to increase the need to. more and not force food condoms and in other countries we need to decrease them
2:15 pm
and we need to convert towards a balanced diet and most of the countries by reducing the condoms and and in some imprisoned doctor a project of hunter on the part stem institute of climate change thank you very much for sharing your thoughts with us. presson has been given a hostile reception in the 2 u.s. cities left devastated by my shootings last weekend because you want people were killed and dozens wounded in el paso in texas and dayton ohio trungpa visited emergency isn't survivors there if a test isn't leading democrats have blamed the president's rhetoric on for inflaming racial tensions in america. touching down in texas donald trump stepped into a border city where both the local politicians and the local community had come out to deliver a motional yet pointed messages was about one point where he says matters he's a person of how will someone people listen to you think it's going to be aware that
2:16 pm
what he says means something and it's a win that the next time you know he's across the country are afraid that they may be next today of all days we must hold the president accountable for that pattern of racism that has defined his administration. from the local people to local politicians many said the president had been slow to denounce the root of the problem. in this case we are dealing with domestic terrorists. we're dealing with a white supremacist we're doing with racist though we made peace and for some the problem of racism has been exacerbated by the president himself runs for most of our recent history it's kind of flowed underground in this administration it's out in the open and it's coming directly from president trump who in no uncertain terms has vilified and tried to diffuse and eyes the people of this community today
2:17 pm
another of the president's would be replacements picked up the fight as grief and anger turned again to the question of who will achieve real change on gun control. he seems more concerned about losing their votes and beating back this hateful ideology. he says guns are not the problem in mass shootings the issue is mental health it's the dogs hatred isn't a mental health issue. that will be donald trump signed off his day in el paso by refusing to acknowledge any anger toward him there are a lot of heroes they're all europe for the love of the respect we were all. there were i wish you could have been there to see it on a but at a time when polls suggest a clear majority of americans support introducing background checks to buy firearms trumps party has little will to reform the country's lax gun laws. not the
