news hour protests on black friday why amazon workers walked off the job during. an accused war criminal. goes before judges at the hague. and sport madrid forced to deny claims their captain failed a drugs test he said with the details of that. has been a significant white house report released quietly the day after a national u.s. holiday in fact which says extreme weather disasters are getting worse in america and climate change is to blame it frequently. president donald trump who once said global warming was a hoax this is the national climate assessment was written before the catastrophic wildfires in california but interestingly it does warn that the warmer and dry conditions have contributed to an increase in large forest fires in the western united states it goes on to say damaging weather events in the past few years of
8:05 am
smash records costing four hundred billion dollars and twenty fifteen and one of the co-authors actually remarks we are seeing the things that we said would happen and they're happening in real time let's start with mike hanna looking at this report for us from washington d.c. it's an old political trick isn't it mike drop the bad news when everyone else is busy with something else. well indeed yes it's actually failed remarkably given that this is now received extensive coverage within the us on a day when not to very much else news is happening so certainly the reporters are only due out in about a month's time administration officials saying it was decided to release it at this particular stage because of the number of international climate conferences that are coming up in coming weeks there is another body of opinion as well that believes that the drafters of the report may have decided to slip it out early to
8:06 am
bring pressure to bear on the white house all sorts of interpretations of the timing of the particular report but whatever it is it's devastating certainly in terms of its breadth and its impact this is thirteen agencies of government looking at it it's the basis it's the science on which the government is going to base decisions or should be basing decision in the years ahead but it's released by an administration where the head of which is opposed to any form of climate change saying that it is a hoax confusing for example weather conditions with climate as evidence by a recent tweet in which he said where is the global warming because of the freeze over this thanksgiving weekend so certainly the president has the power to bury this report just as he did bury a report that was released about a year ago having been drawn up by the barmy era but congress has the power to resurrect it it will just be a very long and hard battle for congress to do so meanwhile president trump likely
8:07 am
to go on as he usually does pretending that the report simply doesn't exist my town or in washington d.c. thank you we've got dario with us now from rockville in maryland he is a professor of economics and environmental studies at wesley university also reviewed this climate report for the national academies before it was published nice to have you with us gary the first thing which actually strikes me when you look over the information and maybe this was the same for you is that it's actually not a lot that's new in this just that it's getting worse is that a fair assessment. that it was a very fair assessment and that's almost the point. the previous speaker spoke of the president's reaction move the reaction in the congress that will say essentially what you just said there's nothing new here so so what and. the answer to that is that yes we have been saying this for fifteen or twenty years it's just
8:08 am
been getting worse and worse and worse of that when it's gotten worse and every rabbit freezing rain or the last two or three is when you haven't done anything he waits the fifteen years of finding this one plan that if you waste another five years it will be even worse and the longer you delay the more expensive the response will be response will have become it's not a matter of when and starting now it is certainly the best on the table so it basically needs someone who believe in it right someone who or a group which does believe in climate change is that the new democratic led house can that make a difference i think he can i think it can a number of them ran with the climate at least that's part of the campaign program. primary focus was was health care and then we're going to be where it's about jobs and things but climate change for the first time in the
8:09 am
campaign and twenty eighteen was about third on the list all over the country in senate races as well as well. so while we've been talking to gary been running various types of pictures i just notice we've got melting. specs we've got fires we've got super storms and flooding in all of that it just highlights the fact that there are so many varieties of extreme weather and with regards to don't trump is that the problem when he tweets about it weighs the global warming effect it's not global warming it's climate change and it can come in many different forms. that could be. i think that might give a lot of credit to the semantic difference i just think that he find it convenient and politically expedient to say that. climate change is a hoax or more recent he said yes something is changing that it will change that it
8:10 am
will not change without action and. that's one of the messages that comes out here here exactly like the look around the globe as well in the united states and. to the the u.s. we poor is a mirror of what we could write in fact what the i.p.c.c. released in this special report on one hundred five degrees. of weeks ago things are getting worse the. interesting thing about the series which is difficult to see in the national climate assessment is near term and there are the. most reports talk about twenty nine hundred twenty one hundred and everybody sort of ones and says who cares. he says you talked about twenty thirty with only twenty of those views and. amplifying that with and find that assessment
8:11 am
policy in the states i think is is it has gotten a lot of attention and when it's when it's really up to the people in your line of work to get the job that is the president is not going to get it. that's what we'll do that terry i thank you for your time thank you for taking time out if you're a defense giving holiday as well to talk to us. thank you for asking me and. they did to get back to. our new alliance has been formed in the battle to replace president joseph kabila this is in democratic republic of congo talk more about that in a moment but first here's a bit of background on what's been happening there the outgoing president joseph kabila has been in power since two thousand and one he is backing his former interior minister emanuel. several opposition leaders that have been blocked from running for president including the former vice president jumpier bamber who's just been acquitted by the international criminal court you might remember for war
