6:11 am
a lot of emergency services deployed and also the way the chain got a little bit cool about some relief although the threat is still very severe there at the moment though not everyone is worried about queensland because it is very very hot there and they're also worried that the winds are going to turn and that could fan the flames and. spread new ones so the worst could still be to calm. your from australia you're familiar with the fire risk in the country i mean fires are nothing new there so why are these ones so bad well it is hot and dry everyone knows that but the fires that are taking place that are happening are in areas that have had long prolonged drought over many years and when it hasn't rained this leaves behind a lot of dry land so you have a lot of shrubbery and grosse and trees and leaves and you combine that with the whole we've learned humidity with high winds this is really perfect bushfire
6:12 am
conditions and not sadly what we're seeing at the moment we heard one local fire official saying that these fires could be out of control for months climate changes is just going to exacerbate these hot conditions these dry conditions does the australian government have a plan going forward well you're right independent scientists in australia from the weather bureau that climate change is exacerbating the drought but at the moment the government will not talk about way that climate change is influencing the bushfires they just boondocks. she used to comment on a day the prime minister says at the moment we're focusing on the immediacy of dealing with the people who need the help. i think eventually. the government's probably going to have to address the link between climate change and these bushfires at the moment its obligation to the paris agreement is to cut emissions by 28 percent by 2030 but there was a report out this week that showed your was the worst in the g 20 for dealing with
6:13 am
climate change so i think this is going to be at the front of many people's minds are the next couple of months reporter jared reed thank you. well the u.s. house of representatives is preparing to take its impeachment process public starting on wednesday the hearings investigating alleged wrongdoing by president donald trump will be broadcast on television and. explains democrats hope it will make for must see t.v. . from now on every hearing will be live on television and that's the big chance for the democrats to make their point president tranced july phone call with ukraine's president selenski was impeachable after years of special counsel mahler's investigation and weeks of the impeachment inquiry this will probably be their last chance to gain public momentum and convince the american voter and that's crucial because in the end they will have to be side of both president trumps fate we asked voters on the streets let's listen to what they had to say
6:14 am
about the public hearings how important is it that it's going to be broadcast live on t.v. it's good because you know they don't satisfy that need that he has for everything to be public yet be careful what you wish for because it will be public. well i got to say i'm looking forward to watching it based on what i've read our president is in a lot of trouble i don't think he really has come out with a good explanation for everything he's done but hearings will be very interesting and i'm glad they're public i don't really have an opinion on it frankly i think it's a waste of time frank with you. is it not going to change the the opinions of the of the voters to hear it probably 2 years what happens i guess i'm just tired of it frankly i think a lot of forces with these impeachments to think the election is still going on for 2 years ago now you know and that's my opinion you know i don't think there's a whole lot on cover there i really don't we're trying to find out of the americans
6:15 am
of that will change that the people's minds that the fact that it's now live on t.v. from tomorrow i think the country is so polarized that everyone's going to hear what they want to hear so they might but unless something crazy happens i don't think so . you're watching the news live from berlin terry barton is up next i'm called aspen thanks for watching. and follow the adventures of the famous naturalist and explorer. to some the great comics on the front of the world's 250th birthday we're embarking on a voyage of discovery. expedition was.
