8:05 am
government protection bodies for indigenous people and the environment. the agency's, we enjoy that with allies, with people, with no former experience, but people that were aligned ideologically made mr. both and all rows take on the amazon, which is to develop the amazon, you know, basically what you know, the 1st me what the devil essentially declared. the amazon opened the business he long called to legalize mining and other heavy, extractive and industrial activities of indigenous land, for example, is currently prohibited by law. he's welcome to legal minus to the presidential palace, members of the store. but i have had meetings of illegal minors in the presidential palace and you know, much of his support comes from lawless regions in the amazon and across the country . so yeah, what we have seen in the last few years,
8:06 am
the post and i rode ministration. took over even increasing lawlessness in the amazon as a result of an even direct result, mid to both scenarios in century rhetoric and also cops and di banging to the very agencies which is supposed to be protecting the flores and his people. not for the past decade, every year and increasing number of people are forced to flee their homes. this year was different. a new height, a displacement above a 100000000. for the 1st time. the u. n. refugee agency says the scale and speed of the crisis are out pacing solutions. the biggest factor right now is the war in ukraine, which has triggered one of the largest master space months since world war 2. there are some glimmers of hope. 5.7000000 people return to their countries of origin and 2021. philippa grande, the un high commissioner for refugees as warned, the global displacement crisis is only going to get worse. new conflict, sir,
8:07 am
emerge. old conflicts are not resolved. and because the cause is that push people to flee are becoming more and more complex or violence, persecution, human rights violations, but also m to an extent, climates, extreme climate phenomena, and the climate change inequalities. even the pandemic, everything conspires to make the situation very difficult for people in certain countries, and their only option is to flee. and there, this is why we've seen this figure grow year after year and reach now more than a 100000000 people. this still almost 6000000 syrian refugees in the middle east. i've just come back from bangladesh where in a tiny and very fragile area of the country,
8:08 am
1000000 refugees from member of the ro hinge, a community have been living for the past few years and the list is very, very long. so the size, the complexity, the difficulty of finding solutions, all of this illustrates the, the, the nature of the problem. we're dealing with, middle in ukraine, the frantic rush, the safety has left families scattered across the country. many a wondering if their missing loved ones are still alive. as charles stratford reports in the capital thief, julia and ludmilla escaped the russian bombardment of mary opal on march 19th. over the next few days, they risked their lives 3 times. driving back into the city, breathing, bullets, shells and air strikes in a desperate attempt to find the father of their family. 61 year old, all exams, philip ankle, they fear. he never made it out for you,
8:09 am
so he did it when we were driving. there were russians on one side, ukrainians on the other, and they were shooting, says yulu, how are you that we were in the middle? it was terrifying those up, but we were determined to get dad and the family used to live nearby as of steel plumbed, where an estimated 2500 ukrainian soldiers and civilians were trapped for weeks. as the fighting intensified, they fled to a basement under a block of plants in the city center. on the day they escaped, the shilling was intense, and alexander never made it from the basement to the waiting civilian car. we were sure he knew we would come back for him, says mila. and he would wait for us in the basement. our. a few days later they returned to where they had last seen, all examined them as we saw all the buildings were burns and destroyed with miller, and there was no one there. ludmilla and uli story is not uncommon. the united nations estimates that rushes invasion has forced more than 12000000 people to flee
8:10 am
their homes. the ukrainian government says thousands of them a searching for friends and loved ones missing, fed dead. and chancellor nicole varies a psychologist, volunteering, it's a sense of helping some of the 10s of thousands of people from mary awful fled to the ukrainian control side of you. today. i had a lady whose husband was killed in front of her and she asked me, why did i survive? she like so many is deeply disturbed, constantly breaking down and refusing to accept what has happened with families who come to this sense receive food parcels. once every 2 weeks, children play while their parents register, until their stories to volunteers on the re used to work at the as of style plants as a liaison operator, he says he left many friends behind mother support anymore. so i think they are more sympathetic to the occupiers yet that they call me and ask when are you coming back? but i will never returned with russians in control. anastasio was
8:11 am
a social worker in mary oh pool. before the war, she struggles to hold back, her tears said, i be upset over here. then we all lost friends. they're gone forever. in my case, it would have been death or captivity because i refuse to work under the occupiers . i don't know if i will ever see my city again. 7 died. the ukrainian government accuses russia forcing tens of thousands of people from mariel into russia and accusation. russia denies eula and louis miller say their only hope is that all examined is still alive. cha, stratford al jazeera keith, really impact of the wars being felt at gas stations, and grocery stores across the us, inflation that is at a 40 year high. the federal reserve is now increasing interest rates to the highest level since 994 to obtain the soaring costs of living, my kind of reports from washington. the announcement was expected, but no less shocking. at today's meeting,
8:12 am
the committee raised the target range for the federal funds rate by 3 quarters of a percentage point resulting in a one and a half percentage point increasing the target range so far this year. the only potential rail flight an unemployment rate near a 50 year low with job vacancies at historical highs and wage growth elevated. but this is offset by soaring inflation, which the rates high is intended to curb. prices across the board increased by nearly 9 percent last month alone, as inflation reached a level not seen in decades. the interest type will increase the price of mortgages and insurance among other things. but the fed hopes that will also dampen consumer spending, which in turn should reduce inflation. my colleagues and i are acutely aware that high inflation imposes significant hardship, especially on those least able to meet the higher costs of essentials, like food, housing, and transportation. we are highly attentive to the risks,
8:13 am
high inflation poses to bite. so both sides of our mandate and were strongly committed to returning inflation to our 2 percent objective. and that would be welcomed by a suffering public y'all. i have got to slow it down. it stretches, gallon and mill of mom, we don't know the $6.00 every 2 days that go to say what the mil for chelsea lewis and her family inflation is not an abstract statistic. it's an everyday burden that determines whether there's food on the table or whether she can drive her twin high school kids to track meets the search, and prices is particularly hard on people. still recovering from the economic ravages of a tend to make. this is been a rough time and then with the, you know, the recent with the ukranian situation and then the gas was the shoot numbers just like this world is, is, is certainly even more rough for the ones who are already struggling to keep their head above water, so it's kind of like now i can speak for myself,
8:14 am
you kind of feel like you're drowning in a sense. chelsea is holding down several jobs while studying for a degree. but she couldn't cope without a government safety net. in particular, a housing subsidy known as section 8, food stamps, about $800.00 a month. my daughter who you just met. she's on social security. that's how we're managing. but the good blessing is before we moved to georgia after 60 years and being on the section a housing voucher program, i made it to the top of up to the fits announcement, the white house, which continues to play much of the gloomy economic outlook on russian president vladimir putin section in ukraine, said it was doing everything to steady growth. that's little comfort to the louis family, which regularly plays a board game called the game of life, in which players get into debt, take out insurance, make investments, spine property, and so on. but they have little or no control over the real game of life being played out beyond these walls. one off ramp and inflation and rising interest rates
8:15 am
in which the consumer is always the loser. my kind of jazeera washington latin america's largest economy. brazil is also struggling with runaway inflation. the central bank has increased interest rates by half a percentage point with rising food and fuel prices. more families say they're struggling to make ends meet. let's also to come here and just say are including regulators in australia. take unprecedented steps to keep the lights on. and the amount accused of being at the u. s. capital attack is seen the day before. we're taking photos inside the building or not. ah, heads up, those winds are picking up across the golf again. have one. so here's the details on thursday, give you a water look cuz this is
8:16 am
a wind blowing down from your dogs. that's what stirring up the sand and does see the brown and orange on our map. that's where all the rising stairs. so some hazy conditions, visibility will be a factor and particularly bad for q 8, the eastern province of saudi bahrain. and katherine and specifically for doha, will look for when goes on friday, 55 kilometers per hour. so yeah, that's enough to spin around the sandy dots by the way, june is the windiest month of the year here in katara. the seabreeze is giving us some showers in storms in karachi. it's picking up the sand and dust and others spots of the country toward the southwest. we've had some pre monsoon storms that have cause damage outs where a heat is coming out of turkmenistan into western areas of afghanistan. so that's pumped up the temperature and herat to $41.00 degrees, just a few degrees off your june temperature, record health it with rain and storms for western areas of turkey. we know there's been flooding and alcohol and certainly the risk of seeing that in this. so and here on thursday, and for central africa, most of the activity is actually along the gulf of guinea. and i want to dip toward
8:17 am
the south now because it's a much more con pitcher after a pair of cold fronts. what to cross south africa. that's it. soon the news informed opinions there was a need for federal government take action to really facilitate a right in depth analysis of the dates, global headlines inside story on al jazeera. and i like fan story again night after night. anyway, investing consistency, and she investments ah ah,
8:18 am
ah, welcome back. okay, come out of the top stories here. this al, policeman, brazil say a suspect has confessed to killing 2 men who went missing in the amazon indigenous expert. rooney, pereira, i'm british journalist dumb phillips went missing more than a week ago, and you in refugee agency report, says the number of people displaced worldwide has risen to record 100000000. the biggest factor, the moment is russia's, we're in the ukraine. and the u. s. federal reserve has higher interest rates by 3 quarters of a percentage point and a bid to come. soaring, inflation increases the largest since 1994, but down wyoming is the chief economist at hung sang bank and china. she says that higher interest rates won't do enough to check inflation while the supply also lack is for sure the main constraints for the rising inflation. but we know the odds of
8:19 am
the inflation is still alternately and monitored phenomena. so the western got generous subsidy to their consumers after cold, it was partly to blame as well. and right now the high inflation is mostly steel, you energy and food crisis. and that issue cannot really be directly addressed by raising rates, but it has to be addressed by increasing capacity. somehow. the global economy is simply not in a good position yet to rebuilding those laws to capacities before the u. s. in particular, the consumers have a lot of financial and the quality in their hands, thanks to the generous government subsidy. so by increasing rates, it will slow down the consumer borrowing. money will also increase the risk of on employments hike in the future on because the big companies profitable supper and they were cope by laying off work inside of thinking of out. and so in the end, it is still the individual who are going to bear most of the cost of the rate high,
8:20 am
or they'd like to be biden administration has announced on additional $1000000000.00 and military aid for ukraine. that includes, i'm to ship rocket systems, artillery and ammunition. ukraine's government has been appealing for weapons to fight against russian forces in the east. in the coming hours, leaders of germany, france and italy are expected and keep where those demands are likely to be repeated. we don't tremendous momentum for donations and delivery of military assistance. and after this, this afternoon discussion, we're not just going to maintain that momentum. we're going to move even faster and push even harder. will deepen our coordination and cooperation and will bolster ukraine's armed forces to help them repel russian aggression now and in the future . so we'll continue working closely and intensely intensively together with this contact group and will keep on strengthening our support for ukraine's self defense
8:21 am
and will continue to stand up for the rules based international order that protects us all. full jean study will assume that bron united states announced a new strengthening of our defense, a new $1000000000.00 support package, but it's coastal defense, artillery and modern rocket system. in this case, we will be waiting for it. i'm grateful for this support. it's especially important for our defense of dumbasses, for ukraine is known as the bread basket of europe, and together with russia, but uses about a quarter of the world's wheat. well, the war is putting that at risk car. diplomatic editor james bay, his reports on efforts to get the grain out of ukraine's port. one of the major reasons for the global food crisis is the grain which is trapped inside ukraine. 25000000 tons from last year's harvest. with an estimated $55000000.00 to be harvested in the coming months. the un has been working on a plan, working with turkey and with russia to get the grain out of the port of odessa
8:22 am
through the black sea, which is mainly controlled by the russian navy with much of it mind. now, for the 1st time, the russian ambassadors ignited nations and sounded positive about the negotiations . we're not responsible for the, for the, for establishing self safe corridors. we said that we could provide safe passage if these court it was an established and put them in. so it's either the mind that, that it, that it, which was mine by the gradients or to ensure that the passage goes around those minds, the dying to come. so what is russia get out of all of this will, there is a 2nd part of the plan according to the united nations, which would bring russian grain and russian fertilizer to the global market. although the spokesperson for the secretary general is giving to detail. but in order to, to, for this to go forward, there will be a need for agreement from the ukrainian side from the russian side. so, and this in close cooperation with the turkish authorities,
8:23 am
including the turkish military. so obviously if and when we have an agreement that will mean that as in any of these types of negotiations, that the parties involved will have reached a place where they feel comfortable that this could move forward. there is a separate plan from the white house which was announced in recent times by president biden, to set up grains silos on the polish border. when we asked the un about that, they said no comment. a suggestion, negotiations evolving turkey, russia, and probably ukraine. and now at a very delicate phase, australia's newly elected government is facing a perfect storm. inflation is high and food prices are rising. and now there's an energy crisis. and that's force regulators to take unprecedented measures. a sarah clock reports now from brisbin. this is one of australia's busiest fruit and vegetable markets. it's normally a hive of activity, but after series of extreme weather events less fresh produce is being delivered to
8:24 am
city markets. by the moment, the vote on the rhetorical form, my review of hyper via web will have blood through fog delivered through voice, very cold weather articulation. them certainly poorer that hulu or the school supplies. kentucky fried chicken, has substituted lettuce with cabbage in its burgers. the floods combined with a labor shortage. as a result of border closures have also pushed up retail costs. whether though, the wired mom and the mom quarter have to go up the people one brought. it's not just a shortage of fresh produce. australia has been plunged into an energy crisis, but the national market operator, suspending market pricing to avoid power outages in up to 5 states. the war and ukraine has led to a global gas shortage prompting australia to rely on its aging coal fired power stations. a quarter of which i currently offline, despite being a major producer,
8:25 am
90 percent of the liquefied natural gas produced on the east coast is exported to china, south korea, and japan. that actually means that there's only a little bit left and the little bits left is sold on the international spot market . and of course, we are now having to purchase that acts of domestic consumption at prices that have gone up in 80 times or more. the energy regulator has intervened and set a price cap, but many families will still be struggling to heat their homes. as australia experiences a series of cold fronts. it means people are dying because don't put their hating on and people are dying because they need access health care. but they can't afford to. and people are dying because their health is in such dire straits because of the fact that they can't afford to play the gas crosses and food shortage or just to of a number of challenges facing the newly elected labor government. with this in mind, they've agreed to introduce new cost of living measures in the type of budget to
8:26 am
deliver on election pledges on child care wages and medicine. until in the governments wound is unlikely to be any immediate reprieve. sarah clark, al jazeera brisbin. now the us house committee investigating the capitol hill riot, says a man who was on a tour of the building just the day before the attack returned. on the day of the insurrection, the committee has released video of the tour, which was organized by a republican congressman who denies any wrongdoing, official reports from washington, dc. it was the day before the capital riot and constituents of republican congressman body loudermilk were being given a tour of the building. one man in particular seemed interested in stairways in security. checkpoints, not the usual tourist attractions. the same man who filmed himself walking towards capitol hill on the day of the riot, making broad threats against democratic members of congress. he has not been charged with any offence or there's no escape. pelosi schumer
8:27 am
rattler will come in for you. the congressman, whose offer during the visit said he did nothing wrong. these are folks who has never been washington these and they're, they're weird visitor, congressman and i want to speak to the committee and because the committees never called me and asked me anything. they sent a letter, i mean really, they never sent it to me. your office never, no, never, never received the letter, never received a phone call. never received an email. they send it to you guys. the chairman of the january 6 committee, betty thompson says the behavior of the group raises concerns about the activity and intent. there have been suggestions, a number of tours and the days before the right. a load some of those involved to essentially study the layout and will capital police say there was nothing suspicious about the loudermilk visit. that our calls to reopen that investigation . it seems suspicious that, ah, you need a subpoena for
8:28 am
a member of congress to want to volunteer everything. he knew that was arguably relevant to the investigation. why do you need a subpoena? your member of congress is supposed to be upholding and defending the constitution . you should be voluntary, like good samaritan, everything you know. the leader of the republicans in the house says the shows the committee is more interested in attacking opponents. but the committee is expected to lay out more evidence of other suspicious visits in coming hearings. allan fisher al jazeera washington no section of the street in front of saudi arabia's embassy in washington. dc has been renamed off to the murder journal, shamela shelldrick. he was killed by saudi agents in istanbul, in 2018. article hand was at the unveiling. were standing outside the usually heavily fortified. saudi arabian embassy here in washington, d. c. with a crowd of media and supporters gathered. we're about to see the name of the street that the embassy sits on re named who showed you way to washington stacy city
8:29 am
council, about a year ago decided to change the official name of the street to honor slain washington post journalist jamal who showed you now the organizers here say they're doing it now and large part to raise awareness of the fact that you as president joe biden, will soon be heading to saudi arabia. basically felt betrayed. i think the promise that he gave us gave the general public about protection of saudi distance . the also the promise of making the saudi government to the prior. they are active to say they want the american people to remember that on the campaign trail, joe biden promised to make saudi arabia a pariah state. they say that's obviously a promise. now broken, not the management of plastic waste is one of the world's most urgent environmental challenges. and so just think i found an answer in a species. a worm, jenin will explain. scientists in australia say this super warm may prove crucial
8:30 am
and scaling back some of the damage done by humans who have made a toxic mark on humanity. it's a, it's a very exciting discovery for us because no, when we started it, we didn't know if the civil war could actually do do what we want them to do with the greater plastics of that that's, that's a good outcome. originally from central and south america, the super worm grows to more than 5 centimeters in length and is often used for pet food. this group of scientists found the species took a particular liking toward polystyrene. one of the most common types of plastic, a super worms, peculiar appetite, potentially playing a pivotal role in reducing waste. one could theoretically half like a few 100000 super forms in a, in a big in a big building right to let them degraded. but that doesn't can worry well, so we want to correct right the enzyme better than reproducing in the lab and the.
