11:30 pm
i do myself as a capital artist we are trying to bake as well as mother and father. we don't want to be realistic in the well, we would rather have a fantasy growing pains on al jazeera. ah, ah, oh mary, i'm nemiah's in london. our main story this our taliban offensive is sweeping further through afghanistan with the group gradually encircling combo bases. this is your full alarm and logo province, just 50 kilometers from the capitol. earlier to major cities fell to the group last regard and kandahar the taliban birthplace. and a key trade port. charlotte palace has more from cobble and now the 2 provincial capitals today, poly alum provincial capital of logo is just to the self of of carbo about an hour
11:31 pm
drive from cobble, but 65 kilometers. so now they are knocking right on the door of cobble the taliban say that the government actually joined them. how we understand it is that they sent hundreds of slices into the city and this actually, his compound was stormed and he was forced to surrender. it is significant because it has gone is harm province and also because it is just so close to the caffeine. meanwhile, the u. n is saying now is the time to avoid a prolonged civil war in afghanistan, while agencies say, is a humanitarian catastrophe. unfolding the taliban is offensive as driven thousands of people from their homes, with more than 250000 people displaced since may of which 80 percent of women and children. as i'm sorry they got on us. martin, i'm much on people for many provinces have been displaced due to war and i have come to cobb bow and taken shelters and living at public parks and roadsides everywhere. and i've got to stand the situation is now worse. if it continues like
11:32 pm
this, the taliban will come to cobble too. but all the guns one is an end to the war and they want peace chatter guy to quote that out. if they did it, it may be, they will come to kabul to it's possible. so we are very concerned in this case many provinces fell back to back. we don't know what is going on. the u. n. is calling for funded mental changes and how countries deal with wildfires focusing on prevention rather than fire fighting. blazes is sweeping across europe, north america, north africa, while temperatures reach record levels. the u. n. is calling for tough new international laws, including mandatory fire breaks and rescue is in northern turkey. searching for survivors after flooding and mud slides killed at least $31.00 people as many as $300.00 people or so reportedly missing in provinces on the black sea. and more coverage on the situation in afghanistan, and then use our at $2100.00 gmc in half an hour time. i'll see them. oh
11:33 pm
i where in the midst of a little emergency it is made people sick and killed on a mass scale. it is d stabilized local economies and overwhelmed poor countries. it is disrupted society's entire nations, the world in fact. but there are still people who dismiss scientific expertise on its causes and severity. media outlets on sending push notifications to offline, so loading us to every new development. and a shocking number of governments remain resistant to the kind of radical action the situation demand. that's because the crisis on referring to isn't the corona bar. if the ecological breakdown of our planet
11:34 pm
on the little of march 2020, the world health organization announced we have rung the bell loud and clear. we were in the grid of the curve in 1900 pandemic. we cannot say these loudly enough or clearly enough, or often enough. all countries can still change the course of this fund amick. the global reaction that a scale wave rarely seen before. governance responded with a mix of chaotic politics and politicize came within the some countries managing to put a method to the madness. regardless of how they got a significant number of countries went into look down with some cities and regions being put into actual florentine. it was funny how such wide range and policy measures were brought into effect in such a short survey to time. especially when you consider that the decades there's been
11:35 pm
a much bigger, more threatening, more long running crisis needing urgent global action. the 1st thing i'd say is that the climate crisis is such that it makes the cobra 19 pandemic. let me george mon beer is a british journalist and activist whose focus is on the state of the climate and is so much bigger. it is so much more threatening to us divide, but not least because it threatens our food supplies. this is something we're discussing thought to listen. but the size is pretty clear that between 3 and 4 degrees centigrade of global heating about pre industrial levels, we go into massive net food deficit, structural climate where crucial breadbasket can turn into dust. suppose this is genuinely threatening to the survival of humanity. and if we think people
11:36 pm
fighting the toilet paper in, in the supermarkets look ugly, i really, really hope we don't need to witness people fighting over food. since the pandemic was announced in lockdown, began, george has been pointing out the connection between the climate crisis and the jew health and economic crises that we are facing right now. one of the main link points to the subject, he came back to repeatedly during our interview capitalism. i think there are 3 fundamental problems. capitalists that are not compatible with the long term survival a few minutes. one is that it relies for parents fast on economic growth, which would be fine. it's kind of growing at the same rate. but if we were to follow the prescriptions of the world bank of the dean where we maintain
11:37 pm
a steady track of 3 percent, growth doesn't sound like very much. that means it doubles in just 24 years and then doubles again and 48. you are already, we've gone beyond the limits that the planet can pay. the 2nd problem is this extraordinary belief that the numbers in your bank account equate to a right to that for well, what possible connection is that between those numbers in a bank account and the right to an attractive land or a private jet that's going to pollute a certain amount of atmosphere or to buy blueprint units to she'll to handle your for home in mahogany because in all those cases you are taking away natural well from someone else. and the 3rd one is that capitalism promise. this is all private luxury. that's why we go along with it, because one day we'll get to wear or temporarily embarrass millionaires, and they can't possibly fulfill yours if it did,
11:38 pm
you would trash our entire life support systems. the all sustainable exploitation of nature has a direct connection to the health crisis when are facing just monks into the lockdown officials from the u. n. w h o and world wildlife fund. all stated that the legal was like trade and deforestation were driving forces behind the increasing number of so called the nordic diseases, illnesses like the current of ours that have leaped from wildlife to human themes. they staged from what we know to have spread as a result of the wildlife trained as a result of people mopping up rad wildlife. from around the world, you brought humans into contact. close contact with species had never been in close contact before. i 1st became aware of this 30 years ago when i lived in the amazon and every so often there been up rank and rabies always deforested enters. and the reason for that was that the vampire bats should be feeding on close to monkeys. in
11:39 pm
the tree, tops in the canopy came down to us and the trees were found feeding on people instead. and people terrified the outbreaks, rabies rampaging trees without proper healthcare. and so large numbers of diets and that picked my interest in how destruction of nature can lead to destruction of people. george isn't exaggerating here. according to recent reports from the world wildlife fund, approximately 60 to 70 percent of the new diseases that have emerged in humans over the past 30 years, have had to do nordic origin. h i. the in speaker emerged through primates, a bowler in size from bats. this was traced back to camels, and in the case of bird flu, will the answers in the name. the birds are primarily industrial, farmed, poultry. all of these diseases spread to humans from animal populations under conditions of considerable environmental pressure. ileana broom is a brazilian generalist and filmmaker who lives in the heart of the amazon in brazil
11:40 pm
the finance trans which must, i'm slipping when things were stamped my are looking at my screen with more said with mackey don't being a basic phone line. i just need the oh boy, the book to the flip car it is no. they kept the fast because we're going to do you know with a man thing, greg. just see the views. no. no else. the overall message is clear. the lettering left to nature, the more environmental problems including you did lease nurses. there will be. but elio news focus is not just on the plant and animal life that has been destroyed. her point is there are communities of people who can have a net positive effect on the world. and even those people are at risk from an economic ideology of relentless growth and the destruction associated with it is to
11:41 pm
epr duty sky 5 different fluid asked the flicky foot bill noticed the light bulb in it don't make any mice middle name use it if not wrenching madeline, what if the god and mister, madam elaine them, i think i'm not 50 which be for me. he suspense. and he's more eligible. strong. just released back the human economy is a subsystem of the natural ecos here. and the only thing that enables it to grow is its continuous capacity to extract resources and energy from the rest of the sphere . ill means is a professor of human ecology. he has
11:42 pm
a compelling way of describing the human takeover of the time. if we went back 10000 years down of the biomass, sure weight of human beings constituted far less than one percent of the total bio massive mammals on earth. today humans are now 32 percent or 34 percent. but if we had our commercial animals cattle, cheap states and so on, that's another 60 plus percent. so in total owners today, human beings and their domestic stock are somewhere between $95.98 and a half percent told them a 1000000. so wild nature has been displaced to the tiny fringes. one of the markers of the human impact on the planet is something with come to know as carbon footprint, the measurement of greenhouse gas emissions. however, there's also something known as the ecological footprint. a concept co developed by bill that compares the total natural resources consumed by an individual group
11:43 pm
against the plan, its ability to renew it. if you look at the ecological footprint of any advanced, highly populated rich country, they are in a state of ecological. so if everyone live, the way people do would require the capacity of, say, 3 plan efforts. if everyone live the way we do on average in canada, we would need the capacity for 5 senators and we don't have them. we can only live this way because we are effectively x over exploding in the global common europe imploded a century ago. it's not been for the capacity to import resources. ready in from the colonies, the ecological footprints rich, very rich and thousands of times greater than the last which we can have great public swimming pools and public tennis courts and public art galleries and museums and playgrounds and parks. but if everybody tries to do it for themselves,
11:44 pm
then in my country london recover off of england, england would cover half of europe and you're covered all well. they wouldn't even be physical room for everybody to live, let alone the ecological space. being able to measure environmental impact has been crucial, not only to help identify which human activities, communities, and countries bear, the biggest responsibility for climate hom, but also to understand the populations that bear the biggest brought to the do a paper published in the science and medical journal, the lancet in september 2020. so to quantify national responsibility for climate breakdown. the findings indicated that high income countries, most of them, among the most industrialized nations in the global north, were responsible for 90 percent of exits, emissions. thing we could cheat, keep brantley's, mom brought it to them. but i would say just in nazi will ask emigration each year will keep last mill stem. the my,
11:45 pm
my would keep my key to you. if you seem to double less so that shows you that will be the margin is mac. who is the what key will be the last a may she'll be andy cook at the soviet. no, no, i half sister mosse. i'm also a, is it? well, they might not. i mean it could be yeah, sister don't was my law. but if you go to some live a tv, it was yes. the base may look back digest module at the base of the coffee back in march. as the enormity of the close crisis was becoming clear, i saw this tweet from climate change activist. it said if the media covered the climate crisis, the way they cover and corona barth, constantly and thoroughly,
11:46 pm
than the public would be awake to the crisis and the whole world would be mobilizing to stop it. like folks have said, climate change needs to hire quoted 900 publicist. i don't george and elliana what they thought of this is really interesting thought and credit, clever and cheeky, ready to put it. it has to be said 1st off. all. busy the governments, communication, and command viruses be really, really bad. really minister got into a bit of a model when asked to explain what he's new laws actually was. it's, it's, it's 6 in 6 in hospitality, but it's not, it's not successful. correct? of ours kind of does it's own communication issues. it's own warnings and says, right, you've got to wash your hands. you've got to practice physical distance thing. you've got to do all the things which this virus demand. so that becomes an imperative stop, you know edgy,
11:47 pm
edgy march, and way too fast. they wanna do this sort of to hit a little hand caught 2nd call. looking to me when the school in the call is to give, you know, it's a great film. this is getting his door is not based on the key is not thing if you loose which to keep them academically much. yeah. governments have been forced to step up and have been forced to tell us what to take. and i think now they need to tell us what to do with comic right now. it's all very well saying we're building new, we're apples, but please don't fly. and we encourage you to know me. please minimize your
11:48 pm
material footprint. i mean, the messages are just so confused, all you end up with it's cognitive, just the drastic response demanded by close it inadvertently gave us a glimpse of what we thought serious and somewhat sustain change could look like. as the virus spread around the world, a travel ground to a halt, car trips was significantly cut back industrial manufacturing dipped. and yet doddering june revealed only a 5 percent lower emissions rate than at the same point in 2019. even though normal activity has not yet fully restarted the target, we need to hit to the climate catastrophe predicted by the un back in 2018 is an emissions reduction of 7.6 percent. so our unexpected experiment in reducing our ecological impacts has revealed the sheer extent of the changes that have to be made for the health of the planet. but as governments, the directly economic fall out of the pandemic, environmental laws and regulations across many countries have been weakened or torn
11:49 pm
down at an alarming speed. this was particularly evident in the united states when limits on pollution and carbon emissions were lifted. and in brazil, where there was a surgery, the executive acts by president jabal scenario, not just you, both from out of been if you go to check, did you feel she's kind of so now she's trying to fit it out because of so to me on being y'all, ms. dame. i'm fine. lace that i do need you. the book is lot of the admiral, buddy rap, protege. i was finding jesus bakovich much, it will make it simple coming on. think was going to get some flat but on the floor as though just the door is no farther home. or if you think of what's been happening in brazil, the destruction of the amazon, the abandonment of environmental regulations, the be increased before
11:50 pm
a station of the one of the most vile, diverse habitats on the planet. it's a travesty against all human time. but it's not that much different from what goes on in every other capital on earth, where governments are beholden to this. we're going to build this economy back bigger, better, stronger we're backing business to get through this to come out the other side and to the grow in the future. and we want to make sure that we get the economy going strongly. we want to get consumer spending again, whatever we want to talk to getting back to normal. you talking about getting back to the to percent annual growth. minimally acceptable, international basis. the 3 percent growth is mentally acceptable for the world as a whole. busy of those prescriptions for the continuous scouring the if you insist on doing that, you will destroy the very basis of existence. in fact, this historical data does show that often after a significant different emissions comes to spike, the center,
11:51 pm
the international climate, and environment research and offload tracks emissions and as documented house since tonight in sixty's, key events that have resulted in emissions falling to all crises. the dissolution of the soviet union, the 90900 asian financial crisis, and the 2008 financial crush. they came a period of growing emissions. is the one thing that i, because i spoke when i was up the office and dropping for much less snow. you know, so i don't like to blame the school like job. bam. was 3 kids up to the scene. now suddenly, fees, shoes saw sample just thought that was like is a no from re usable shopping bags to energy efficient home systems and even banded toothbrushes over the past decade. also, there's been
11:52 pm
a surge and individual efforts around the world to live more so called eco friendly lives. while this unmistakable power in the collective action of many individuals, giant corporations can render these efforts irrelevant, simply because their actions are many orders of magnitude more impactful on the planet. just take a look at the breakdown of greenhouse gas emissions since 1988, 100 companies alone know responsible for an astonishing 71 percent. there is literally nothing individual action can achieve if big businesses do not make fundamental changes. so why is this mythology of individual green transformation pushed so aggressively as a viable solution to this global climate crisis? wellness vested interests of course, fossil fuel company, big manufacturers, the airline corporations, intensive, industrial agriculture. all these giant industries been billions to lobby
11:53 pm
policymakers and to shape global messaging, so they can pursue their business. shifting the uniform to individuals takes the heat off them. well, an essential element of neo liberalism is the individuation of play. you don't have any money left because you're lazy and feckless. never mind the massive inequality and now distribution, well, you want to protect the environment. well, stop fine, fact it never mind the fact that the fossil fuel companies have, i've got their claws into the home math rates of gum. so it's all about passing on playing from structural factors on to individual people. so part of the kind of meal of growth mythology is that technology will solve our problems. so you can change the big deal, but it's caused by say, the burning fossil fuel. so only need to do is shift to renew green energy. and people feel like i don't have to worry about climate change anymore because
11:54 pm
technology has softball and plants capture seo to ah, what other kinds of plans captured it to if these industrial plants had technology, the captured carbon like trees, we could help lower emissions. so think about if you truly believe and we teach the summer business schools all over the. ready planet that through grows, we can create the welsh needed, theresa technologies needed to replace nature if you really are so ethical centric . so self centered on the success of our speech. and then this guy, i don't happened as long as be and still makes huge fortunes of the system. so resist any effort to redesign the system before and close on. so. so now it's beginning. so, and that's what we can mask on which isn't going. she picks up the audio g y in market only from one of the doors if they can move it
11:55 pm
out. yeah, let me see if we can, you know, based on my system path to keep going. feel. so when we produce biofuel from sugar cane in brazil, we use the best practice international standard to help protect workers. and the environment last cannot create at thought the major samantha don't mean to kill straw set. the collapse, the key was his name. elsie sent me to town and i see would it be nice if he'd been based willing? was it the miller told them or not what you want to know me, but i asked to see your daughter wonders. ange boston kwan may as may suit
11:56 pm
which be some man to commit mortgage in stock. he will straw seat at the kola much a fail to the splendid knees. the events of the past few months have begun to stretch our collective imagination in directions. we wouldn't have contemplated before, and as we take stock of everything with land from the pen demik, we need to apply it to the much bigger, ongoing emergency of the environmental crisis. after all, that is the biggest health problem we will ever have to collectively face the trying for the pendulum to swing back toward a greater sense amount. not only in the relationship, some nations, but then the relationships between human crime and the rest of nikos. whereby as a species, as a global civilization, we can live more equitably within the productive means of the system. now that seems perhaps a bit of a stretch from corporate,
11:57 pm
but it is merely symptomatic with radium balances that currently exist hoping will not by any means that the last of them will be more if you stay on the contract, kick up by feel funny film and we've been glad we're figuring out can you please call me back. i thought i was trying to move too much. i imagine now i think massa out when we can, we can mobilize your sausage very, very quickly. we can totally change of behavior. we can totally change a structural politics and the way that is operating all these things we, the total, complete, impossible suddenly become possible because her face with an emergency. now we have to recognize planning breaks as an emergency. we need now to mobilize on
11:58 pm
a massive scale to ensure that our lives are not sacrifice on the altar of money. news, news, news, news, news, news. hello there, let's look to australia and things are looking fine and dry across many areas. thanks to high pressure. that's keeping lots of sunshine through central and northern areas and it's a similar story in the west. there will be sunshine for perth this weekend with the temperature sitting in the early twenties. it's a similar story for sydney further north though we are expecting
11:59 pm
a few showers around coastal areas of new south wales and queensland possible storm or 2. but it's looking relatively quiet as we had further south, little bit of wind kicking into victoria. and by the time we go to sunday, it's looking rather wet and windy for tasmania. now you hope across the tasman sea to new zealand. this is where we're seeing the really unsettled weather. we've got a weather system pushing up through the south fall in that spring quite a winter. we mixed essential areas with quite a bit of snow kicking in. but by the time we get into sunday, it does clear, though it will start to feel colder in southern parts of the south island up in the northeast and sunshine coming through. oakland coming in at 15 degrees celsius is moved to east asia. this is where we are seeing the really wet weather across the central provinces of china. and we are expecting more flooding in the days to come that your update the
12:00 am
deal and you can a 3rd risk of extinction in vicious plan to read the nation. if the president sites in one of the best guys on out in the me this is al jazeera, ah hello mario demising, welcome to the news, our life from london. coming up in the next 60 minutes. i've got to stand government on the brink of catastrophe. 50 off to city falls to the taliban with the fighters. now just an hours drive from campbell. that in the capital, humanitarian crisis is already unfolding.
