2:05 am
throughout the day, you had the us special envoy for afghanistan's. i'll make a little of that as well as envoys from the u. k. e. you the you, when china pakistan was becca stan and copper all assembled here. first, they met with a delegation from the afghanistan government led by doctor de la de la. he's the head of the national reconciliation council for afghanistan. those meetings lasted for about 2 hours. not too long. after that, you had a separate meeting between the envoys who are assembled here and a delegation from the taliban. it's not clear what was discussed in those meetings, but if you look at a statement that was issued by all make a little before he arrived here and don't have which stated in several planned rounds of meetings over 3 days, representatives from countries in the region and beyond as well as for multilateral organizations, will press for a reduction of violence and cease fire and the commitment not to recognize
2:06 am
a government imposed by force. that statement seems to indicate that all the assembled parties here were trying to convey a message to the taliban that it will be no international recognition of any government that is seized by force by the taliban in afghanistan. as i said, it's unclear what exactly is going to play out over the next 2 days. there was a huge impetus here to try to get something done to get the intra african piece process and dialogue back on track. there was a huge push here to respond in a joint fashion, to what is happening in afghanistan to a very rapidly deteriorating situation. many of the diplomats here they are not yet speaking on the record. they are not yet speaking on camera. they're not yet sure how exactly this is all going to play out, but there is a huge push to try to get something done so that the situation on the ground in afghanistan can improve. well, chris alexander served as the canadian ambassador to have got a song from 2003 to 2005. he says global powers need to take action against

2:08 am
afghanistan and central asia. it, it is the holy grail. and so the question becomes, what will the international community do in respond if this was happening in any other part of the world? one country invading another, using proxies or otherwise, there would be a stiff reaction when vladimir putin invaded ukraine. there were sanction when the soviet invaded afghanistan in 979, there was a stern reaction and sanction. if we want to prevent the worst, perhaps going to stand that needs to be the approach. today we need to look at chapter 7 of the charter. and sanctions, and other options the international community could take against pakistan, which is the real aggressor, the real belligerent rosie mentioned earlier, the escalation in fighting has led to hundreds of thousands of people being false from their homes. charlotte balance has been out and about income, where many internally displaced atkins, have arrived to find little support. thousands of people have arrived at this

2:23 am
lauren gifford is a human environment. geographer and research associates at the university of i was in a join, be now live from bar harbor in main. good. have you with us that miss given the program? di warnings ready from the united nations over climate change? we heard what the report said 24 hours ago, the really, what mincing words, many governments endorsed positively the report. but what they really do is we had towards the us meeting in glasgow. it's the next cop meeting and hopefully some results are right. absolutely. so yesterday morning, the apc report was released. there's actually nothing new in the report. we know what the sciences, but the science was telling us that catastrophic climate change is happening and it's happening very quickly, more quickly than we had anticipated previously. so the i p c. c report is not policy prescriptive, it's essentially a lit review that aggregates all the, the scientific knowledge on this topic. so we go to the u. n. and all the countries come together and they are working to come up with unfortunately non binding,
2:24 am
but non binding actions that countries can take to draw down atmosphere, a carbon concentrations to move to a renewable energy future and to address climate. and just broadly across the globe, let's talk about renewable energy because practical steps. obviously what people want to see governments talk about rail and road transport, turning away from petrol and moving to electric, more use of wind and solar despite the fact that many experts tend to think that any a fraction of that power actually has any sort of impact on countries that need it most, where should we be looking for the biggest changes in some of societal movements when it comes to fossil fuels or renewables? i mean it's time to stop talking and to actually act and moving away from fossil fuel use. it's the extraction and combustion of fossil fuels that have brought us climate change and continue to exacerbate climate change. we also know that renewables now are affordable. we have the technology,
2:25 am
we have the capabilities. there are fossil fuel subsidies in many countries, including the united states where i am that make fossil fuels cheap and prohibit the uptake of renewable technologies. but, but we have, we have the capability and it's time to act what, what do you say to a country like india, for example. it yesterday 24 hours ago said that the report was a clarion coal to the more industrialized countries get india for example, i'm not just picking on india, but it is a great example. they thought it to continue to use fossil fuels. they've started to mine more coal sell more coal. whereas the opposite has happened in a place like australia. you know, there are deep injustices. there are places like australia, places in the global north. the u. s. western europe developed very rapidly and cheap coal and cheap fossil fuel production and fossil fuel energy. so there is an injustice to say to a country like india. you, you can't do that, you know,
2:26 am
part of our wealth and accumulated wealth that are, that these western countries have, comes from it's dependency. it's early dependency on fossil fuels. so we understand that countries like india are, we understand why they're using it right. they want rapid development, but they are also so much more progressive on the uptake of renewable. busy solar in particular, throughout india. so i actually think while we, you know, some, some folks are criticizing these developing and bricks countries. we call them middle developing countries for using fossil fuels. we also need to acknowledge how progressive they are with renewables. yeah, i agree the i seen a lot of the renewable technology used in india. it's good to have your input to as an independent contributor to our program. lauren gifted, thanks so much for joining us. thank you very much for having me. me
