6:01 am
respected states by fire by our own 30000 buyers in this space that is affecting mostly remote locations not quite here in the city but we're told that 345 hours away from here there's already fires in those areas the government has announced that they're going to be using the armed forces to fight this fires around the hundreds of thousands of them people here are telling us they still have not seen anything as whole as we also heard from the governors of at least 6 states that have been affected by the fires they're asking for an urgent meeting with the press and they say that they need help the police to fight the fires but in order to cope with what is coming next and let me tell you where we are right now this place 30 years ago used to be filled with trees and biodiversity that has obviously obviously changed this is now a city but over the past decade brazil has pulled him place a series of controls of laws of agencies that help protect the amazon rain forest
6:02 am
watch environmental groups are saying is that since that was when i go to coffees he has taken a very aggressive stance against the n.g.o.s he has encouraged loggers and miners for example to take over land in places like this one and that's why they're saying that mount the fires that we're seeing here have increased in the past in the past this past month. and tell us more about how brazilians feel witnessing these fires and also the international pressure that's being piled on the government right now like every other. well like in every other country in the world it depends who you are going who you talked with been talking to environmental groups who are extremely war even with what is happening in the country they're saying stuff that comes that between and deals and the government was over. that was when i don't once again starting over us why they say that they already had for example
6:03 am
in places like this when they were already working with communities helping them fight deforestation among other things and that valued most when i don't has once again opened up another fight but then of course you talk to people in places like this one many of them are supporters of the precedents in fact who are trying to rent a plane in order to be able to make it to a place that's where of a big fire apparently is happening and we were told that the plane was not going to be rented to us because we were from the press and we were spreading lies about president valuables and i don't many of the people that are living in the face say that so the situation is being exaggerated by international media well when you talk to environmental groups we're just seeing some of the maps that they have been seeing maps created through satellites and what they're saying is that there's been an increase and 80 percent increase in the past year of the amount of fires that are being set in the amazon rain forest and they're saying that what he's always that they need the press in fact right now. all right thank you very much from
6:04 am
other to start us there to raise above and was most unhealthy to die in china he joins us from cairo prune an indigenous territory in the state of a donya in northwest brazil tell us what's happening there. well on the for our river trip to the sea but on our river which is in the far northwest of brazil in the amazon there's smoke in the air there's ashes in the air this is the community that 1st made contact with the outside world made those made contact with in 1978 so a very rustic way of life but there are people from this community who have traveled to europe or to united nations in geneva they've spoken to the european union they've spoken to merkel sore in south america about their conditions here they say that there is regular incursions into their territory the developers set fires which cannot be controlled quite often and so they are calling for the international community to put pressure on the job also nardo government to do more
6:05 am
to protect these kind of environment they talk about local authority the local municipality working together what they call criminal organizations to try to steal their land so these are protection from the outside world to protect our way of life which they say is fundamental their relationship with the earth is likely important to their future well being but they are seeing the effects here of the smoke of the ashes of the fires in the amazon thank you very much from the caribbean and daniel shaima bring us a sense of what's happening there discuss this and more with powerless a taro he is director of the brazil institute at the woodrow wilson center joins us via skype from sao paolo and we have seen these really the ferocity of these fires in the amazon not only sparking protests inside of brazil but statements of international concern as well what are your thoughts on jr bolzan are is handling
6:06 am
of this crisis. well he is clear they feel it in the press or. in the hospital is mobilizing the army to work in containing this fire. very different crime the responses for it from a few of the ready low when you was that monsoons eels and saying that and seals had set the fire let me put something in their street. greed of 80 percent of forest fires this year comes from data collected by the brazilian national institute of space research that has been doing this kind of job work of monitoring forest fires for a number of years together we've not this is not a work of. this is a work of scientists and they have produced. that this and then the
6:07 am
images of the fires is what field that the beta i that is actually i have worked on this for a number of years having covered the real 92 earth summit i believe that this is all very well because brazil. of fire and environment to it as a fire vibrant scientific community in a fire and society that does not want to see the amazon which is that national asset of brazil talk which is. for us. it's not just a try it doesn't just have implications for brazil there are concerns about the long term consequences for the world but let me just ask you about bolton r.-o.
6:08 am
himself because we know he's a nationalist party this leader he's been very clear he says he doesn't believe in climate change there's a control of a sea like this at home and then also the sort of statements of international concern just sort of give him fuel to kind of reinforce his base of support. i don't think so particularly his minister of agriculture for instance a very competent in this article by the way a lady that is at the cinema is not with the president on this because she knows that for presumably coulter remain me. it is probably the most productive open culture in the world we did it on the amazon them on the pass to be there because the amazon i'm a song is what got her into rain actors in brazil and part of the reason brazil is so productive the recall is the rain the rain comes from the amazon add to
6:09 am
that lots of lent lots of science research and science for the best 40 years i think the president will and he is starting to get a shows that he with it will listen and you will understand because not only its is in the national interest all were super super surfer who protect the forest for reasons that i just indicated it is also obviously brazil coots ace sanctions from under sparkler the opium of countries but as you just heard the agreement of a lot would spark americans who are with. others at that agreement we will not be fulfilled it will not come. again as you say european countries have indicated that that trade deal might be in jeopardy but thank you very much for sharing an alice with us palace to tara joining us now from sao paolo. so i have for you on

6:28 am
says a childhood of misery began but he says some things have since improved for intersex people here in kenya the government's now conducting a census is the 1st in africa to recognise intersex people turn it into typical males and females there was a realisation that intersex children are being killed most of these children cannot even access simple government services then there was a need. to have policies that look on to intersects. another group to be recognised for the 1st time in this census of people with albinism it's now listed as a disability we are excited because it will make us to count. it will make us to be seen to be kenyans it devalued it's us that we are actually a demographic body of will we being the most of the current population. the
6:29 am
government hopes most of the data can be collected in 2 evenings so. while you're more in the last census 10 years ago some officials were accused of rigging politics in kenya who are often contested wrong tribal lines and census data determines the allocation of state resources we are. trying to do some funny games asking google to move this way or that we we are watching you or. your middle of the law collecting accurate data is a challenge about 10000000 kenyans and their magic herders who regularly cross borders to neighboring countries millions more live in slums like this one is no official list of addresses so the government has ordered bars and pubs to close and told everyone to stay home and wait for the enumerators to come and knock at the
6:30 am
door. they push the data collection takes days processing it takes much longer will disown her son's national. results might contain some surprises or be contested kenyans will have to wait months to find out. where al-jazeera nairobi kenya. u.s. health officials saying a patient has died after developing a severe lung disease in the 1st such case they suspect is linked to vaporing the patient was one of $193.00 potential cases of the unexplained respect illness after reported use of east cigarettes to inhale vaporize nicotine or cannabis now hoping is sometimes used as an aid to quit smoking cigarettes but scientists around the world are divided about how safe an alternative it is isa great users don't get exposed to the estimated 7000 chemical constituents present in cigarettes but
6:31 am
vaporing products do contain nicotine which is of course highly addictive but we know that they also contain other potentially harmful substances the use of the cigarettes has skyrocketed in recent years particularly among adolescents 3600000 middle and high school students in the u.s. of the 2 views of a ping products in 2018 and this is double the figure from the year before. and we ross is a clinical consultant for the national center for smoking cessation and training she joins us now via skype from leicester here in the u.k. so we have this case in which a patient has died after developing lung disease of course there is much we don't know about the precise circumstances of the patient's death but how important is it that they did use e. cigarettes. well i think there's a lot we as you say there's
6:32 am
a lot we don't know about this particular case what concerns me is that particularly in the us the seems to be a tendency to blame on. you know for what happened to patients without actually looking at the wider picture in the u.k. our medicines and health regulator agents it looks at any adverse event and there has been nothing to report it apart from you know dry cough a little bit of a sore throat in the early stages and we know that people stopping smoking experience that anyway and i think it's important to actually get the message out to smokers that is a very very your say but i see your saying that this could be linked to if there is lung disease or asperity or less this could actually possibly be linked to a previous history of smoking actual cigarettes as opposed of aping oh yes i mean
6:33 am
clearly a lot of most vapors were smokers originally and you know somebody that smoked for 203040 years will of developed all sorts of problems that are related to smoking now they'd switch to vaporing in the hope of improving their health but that doesn't wipe out the the years of now i'm reshape what you say. what you say about there being a difference perhaps in the way the u.s. and the u.k. protests but it is important that the u.s. centers for disease control prevention is a they are investigating a 193 other cases of this mysterious spirit tree on this which could be linked to isa great so in all these cases the pay.
