hello, now it became a recognized global brand with this story of algebra. unique pop holding the powerful to account. as we examined the u. s. each row in the world on al jazeera ah g 20 leaders promised to keep global warming to one and a half degrees celsius. but leave rome without a commitment on net 0 carbon emissions. the stage is now set for cop $26.00 governments. a war misses their last chance to avoid climate catastrophe. ah.
1:01 am
hello i mary. i'm democracy in london. you're watching. ouch. is era also coming up on the program? protest groups in sudan called for a strike against military as pro democracy demonstrate as barricade rhodes in the capital in japan's new prime minister is projected to win elections, but the ruling party's loss of seats in the parliament could we can fully up cuz she does power ah, walled leaders have agreed on the need to take action to fight climate change and prevent global warming by no more than one and a half degrees above pre industrial levels. but they've also been criticized for making no commitment to achieve. net 0 carbon emissions by 2050. the use of coal was highly contentious. g 20 leaders agreed to start financing new coal plants, but did not agree to and coal power in their own countries. this is important
1:02 am
because the meeting was meant to be a springboard for the cop 26 gathering in glasgow. and includes countries which account for 80 percent of global admissions. we have lots of crisis the hell to incline, the global poverty, the muslim attrition gender, and generational need qualities demand stronger action that we've taken so far. so i asked myself what we mean when you say we've succeeded but in walk we succeeded. well, we certainly pledged considerable resources. we also care to manual these co meet when we increase their strength, their scope. but mostly we made sure that our dream says the secretary general, united nations are not only alive, but also that they are progressing. algiers, kimberly alca has been following developments in rainforest and explains how the outcome of the g. 20 is liked, like he to effect the cop 26 climate summit in glasgow. this is
1:03 am
a climate conference that many had hoped that the g 20 meetings would kind of have an energy that that would start that climate conference. and instead, what we're getting from this draft communique has been very disappointing for so many what is, seems to be the real issue with it is this failure to get a firm date for carbon neutrality. and the language that we're seeing in this final communique that basically says that they've agreed to reach carbon neutrality by around the mid century is what many are saying really lacks ambition. it fails to meet the moment and is going to make the work in glasgow at that you and climate summit so much more difficult. and so there is language here that says that in fact, they have committed to limiting global warming by 1.5 degrees celsius. but at the same time, we know that you and climate scientists were looking for so much more warning that
1:04 am
there needed to be so much more an order to avert the climate catastrophes that were already starting to see into a growing pace around the globe. so this is the disappointment that has been expressed by many u. s. president joe biden ran i and got into office, largely because of his commitment to combating climate change, calling it an existential threat. all the focus will now shift from runs, the scottish city of glasgow for the cop 26 climate summit. it is from every region in the world are expected to discuss their plans to cut emissions. the u. k is hosting the event which the prime minister barak johnson is called, a whiles moment of truth and portions prince charles says, describe the meeting as make or break for the planet. listen, look up to 6 begins in glasgow to morrow. quite literally. it is the last chance saloon we must now translate fine words into still finer actions.
1:05 am
and as the enormity of the climate, jalap challenge dominates people's conversations from news rooms to living rooms. but as the future of humanity and nature herself are at stake. it is surely time to set aside our differences and grasp this unique opportunity to launch a substantial green recovery by putting the global economy on a confident, sustainable trajectory, and thus saber planet. while our environment editor nick clark is in glasgow for this and he gives us more contacts now on why cop 26 is important to say there's a lot at stake here in glasgow. busy is an understatement, the science tells us what needs to be done, and we'll see in the holes behind me over the next 2 weeks. if national leaderships have what it takes to step up, the world is overheating, and extreme weather is already hitting hot. and to demonstrate the importance of
1:06 am
this conference, we return to every in greece scene of those devastating wildfires in the summer weather still picking up the pieces in early august with temperatures at unseen highs, wildfires ripped across southern europe. the land was parched and the fires quickly spread. northern heavier in greece was a hardest hit. inferno lasted for 2 weeks, thousands were evacuated. today you can see what's left. the devastation in this area was total. people are well used to annual wildfires here, but not on this scale. not with this much last thousands of hector's of forest and livelihoods just incinerated. and because of the fires a new threat as the rain comes so do floods and mudslides defies of destroy the land, natural ability to withhold water to act as a flood defense system. so now in periods of intense rain,
1:07 am
the water just cascades of these hillsides so that using the dead trees to shore the soil and the land intact, it is hard exhausting work, but vital to preserve what's left and encourage regeneration of the forest. a big part of evy as far as the economy has been obliterated. cost as i own use, livelihood comes from his bees who make honey from the resin of pine trees or used to. i feel sad that this once green forest has been burnt, and i find it difficult to figure out what we will do and how be keeping can continue to exist on ever. we will not be around when this forest is once again able to give us honey. so for us, our area has died. collecting pine reson was an important money and for farmers like yours, yours, i could not do, but not any more. he also lost the 5th of his goat, her to the fires. across the island, more animals died than survived. the destruction was great for pharmacy. buildings
1:08 am
were burnt, animals were lost, and grazing. land has disappeared. in other words, what we had here was last many years need to go by so that things can return to how they were helping people around the world to adapt to and mitigate against catastrophic events. like this is a big part of the climate conference in glands go. so what success it 26 looked like. the science tells us we need to prevent temperature rising beyond ideally one and a half degrees celsius. but the 2021 production got report shows that current government plans will produce more than double the amount of fossil fuels required to make that happen. so in glasgow, we need a strong declaration that commit to net 0 emissions by 2050, as well as big reductions by 2030. this has been a seismic event that has changed lives perhaps for a generation, but the forest will come back because nature always does. if humanity allows it to . well right now,
1:09 am
the omen here and god's go not good. just this week we had that even with the latest global commitments to cut emissions, we're still heading for 2.7 degrees celsius. remember, the target is one and a half degrees. and the $100000000000.00 a year promised by rich nations to developing countries by 2020. well, that went arrive now until 2023. trust is a limited commodity here in clause go and it will be a long, hard battle to reach the agreement. the world needs ah, the sudanese teaches committee is called for a strike in all states across the country. it comes a day after tens of thousands of people rally to denounce last mondays. military co soldiers use tear gas and blocked major roads. at least 4 people were killed. it will morgan brings us the latest now from the streets of hard. tim,
1:10 am
where on one of the main roads in sedan capital, in central business district, and normally on a normal day around this time, which is mid afternoon in hot assume the roads are jammed with scars and the shops are open. and that's because this road connects to many state institutions and many banking institutions in the heart of the capital. but right now, there are very few cars on the street and many shop remain closed. and this is a week after the military take over. now today is the 1st day of the work and we many people here say that they are very wary and they're very uncertain of the coming days. it's also they often nationwide protest people calling for the release of prime minister, the lamb built on his cabinet members who are arrested on monday. when the military took over many protests of have called on people to join a civil disobedience movement. and to join general strikes, protested at residential levels, have set up barricade along the main roads and add their neighborhoods to try to get more people to join the civil disobedience movement. but to also make sure that
1:11 am
there are fewer people going to work to show the army that they are still protesting against that take over some of the main roads and bridges that were blocked by the military leading to the capital, one of whom have been opened with the exception of 2 bridges, but there are also trees that have been cleared off the barricade set by the protest of the army says that it wants to see life return to normal as a way to form their civilian transitional government. which should be led by the military until elections are held in july 2023. but protested they, they're not going to wait for the formation of that government and see what it looks like. they calling for more protest in the coming days. but in the meantime, they say they will use every means available to show the army that they're not happy with the takeover. and they want every parent to democratic process that was already under way before the army over through the government. on monday, i just want take a closer look now at the pro democracy groups behind the process and civil disobedience movement. sudanese teachers committee that called the strike is part

1:13 am
leaders of the generals who have instigated this, who may have hope that it would pass through with a minimum of opposition, both from the street and sudan and the protest movement. and also from the international community, but i think they are rapidly discovering that that was a great miscalculation the demonstrations yesterday. were a sign of that and i think it can only be expected to continue if not escalate. it's not just a question of the 1000000000 government being restored. the protest movement is demanding more than that now. and if we look at the balance of power, believe the rest with the protest. so the protest movement is not just calling for a restoration of the power sharing agreement that existed between the 2 to the military and civilian is calling out for the military to be pushed out of that power sharing marriage altogether and for full civilian leadership to take over the regional government and if you are p as m r a province has calling on all of its
