while the same analysis of these events don't draw a direct link with climate change, it is still a factor. we know generally things like rainfall getting more extreme. that's generally true, but it's a little more they launched. but we have seen across the world, a lot of serious and very damaging. floods become more likely to climate change. while the study highlight is that despite heat waves, killing 857000 people worldwide between 202020, some countries still to monitor them or even agree how to define them. there's not enough information coming from lower the middle income countries. and the economic impacts on productivity infrastructure and property often goes unmeasured and health consequences, unnoticed in tokyo. currently experiencing the worst heat waves and $1875.00 electricity demand is out stripping supply threatening power outages. but well,
10:31 pm
climate change is a key driver. it's not the reason many of these extreme weather events turn into catastrophes, say, scientists, but high poverty rates for infrastructure and crumbling health care systems, which must factor into future disaster prevention strategies. charlie angela outta 0. aah! quick look at main stories now, and nato leaders will invite sweden unfinished to become members of the alliance on wednesday. and i said to general young sultan bug has been speaking in the last 30 minutes. he did confirm that that is going to happen just shortly after turkey came on board. the 3 countries signed a memorandum of understanding before a crucial summit, taking place in the drill that starts tomorrow to move that will and decades of military neutrality, turkey film, and sweden have signs of the memorandum that addresses trickiest

10:36 pm
our audience around the world. hi everybody. we are. it's child on the world. i'm on. i'm an environment and climate shifter foyer beefed in bung of it. get to see you. okay, so we have 3 experts. we can tell you about a very unpredictable monsoon season that we're seeing right now. if you would like to talk to them, you have questions, you've got comments, jump on to you tube and that comment section is live. i am just looking patton a. let's start off with some of your reporting. some of the pictures that you sent us on my laptop can you talk us through the pictures just very briefly. let's start with this one where you, you're on the river here on my laptop. there we go. what are we seeing here? before i move on to the next shot. so this is a rescue mission that we went on. that's a military boat and the water that you see it looks like a deep river, but it's actually fees that have been submerged. and the water is about 15
10:37 pm
feet deep in many areas. i'm not my mac is correct. that's close to 5 meters. if i'm not wrong, extra deep and that those fields are livelihoods, all thousands of feet. i thought that you were on a boat going down a huge river, so we've got more pictures that there are more so i want you to have keep, keep saying on my laptop. here we go. look at this one hand, where are we here? that is a road that run through a community i locality in a song and you got that is a water fresh of a water while walking. it was very difficult for me to walk as the current was strong. and you could see everything that you see in river water resolve, fish. we saw all kinds of insect now was snakes and the water was in people's homes, again needy and people were living like back to me that again in a former career i would tell people full cause the weather. we always told people
10:38 pm
never to walk through flop water because it's dangerous. is there an option in the regions that you went to? not at all because you know was rescue mission, but i felt fine and picture that goes well going on. the fact is that this is a rule and a lot of people that are farmers to the very attached to their land and they're not comfortable leaving. so many people to prefer to do this in, in flooding waters. i mean, i remember much mix right there and they were ok what i mean, i don't want to glorify that, but the fact that they prefer leaving that in those conditions just hoping the water level received at the it good. okay. right. oh, we're come back because you're breaking up a little bit, but i, i understand we're while you're taking us. and rita, i want to bring you in here because monsoon season, you see a lot of rain. you do see a lot of flooding anyway. but this is unusual because why?
10:39 pm
okay, so the thing is we are experiencing new form and type of climate impacts that we have not seen before. so countries and communities are facing increasing frequency and intensity of the same event like flux or drought, a few level rise that they experiencing before, and then they were, they were capable of handling them. but right now, what they're facing is unprecedented. they've never faced that before. so just give you a few examples like the b, i've been gone. the course today, they are in a bundle. they used to receive one type loan in 2 years. now the receive 2 cycles in one year. but me was mentioning that atomic service had one major flood than me . and now there's another major line. so what happens is the, the community is hardly able to recover from one event. and they are faced with another event. which means that in the process of recovery, you can never think of going back to the same level seem as in the case of sea
10:40 pm
level rice. you know, we often in india, people don't, you know, they don't realize the climate impact about the pipeline and flux that you can see they found their lot of flu unsafe event and i'm part of view of the technical term . but launch events like sea level rise and it is happening, you know, normal general public the don't understand. i've been to the south kinda florida heavily 2 months back. and that group of 10 years, which is only be under water and the, and the religious study area was they used to be in that area to on price kilometers away from the see not the last year that one on price. and i was from the c, and in due course they are going to wonder what similarly invalidation, what we did research last year we saw that every family had undergone displacement, at least $311.00 times in the family appeared in what period of time no routine,
10:41 pm
how many times the thing moved in, in a year in a scene in how, how long? so in the, in a, in a, in a period of 5 last 5 to 600 goodness, to him, hold at least 3 and there was one woman really movie. she had 7 fun all the 7 on that. and you can imagine the scale of impact of having. and i can keep going on, you know, these impacts on not when these events happen. we typically call them as climate change loss and damage. and i just quickly explain what loss damage means. loss is something that you lose forever. like feeling drives on, all those the little under water, the last, whatever they're never going to be clean back then that i'm again just kind of a duel. but yes, there is caleb damage, you know, people are suffering losses. and then when i say that these lot and damage are not just in the phenomenon. so it's not a lot of infrastructure from homes on the crops livelihood. that non economic
10:42 pm
losses and damage because they're the children who are suffering mental tom, i'm exactly because of these events. they women and children who are forced to live in temporary relief camps and research 2 years back showed that when in some flooded. so there are so many, all the women and children, but targeted by traffic or so, trafficking increase in dr. mark, richard, i'm just going to put pause on you for a moment because then you're talking about the ripple effects of having to leave your how multiple times because of extreme weather. and then what happens then, but i want to bring in shower, but before we get there, if that's okay with you, siobhan roxie co is a climate scientists and we were looking at the situation with an erotic monsoon. i'm thinking what is going on here? roxy? some the up in a nutshell, and i'd love to build on what he told us earlier. here's roxy. the most want to clear change more so bad news is that instead of having the race
10:43 pm
toward the season, monitored race better, joe or the season? no, we are having a long drive beards intermittent with short space or heavy rain falling. hosting clips monsoon and a drought. let me just go via cynita, who's an environmentalist here on my laptop flood at the time of drought. this is the story of climate crisis. why we need to get very serious about managing scarcity and excess water is almost unthinkable even from st. 10 years ago. shabba, please pick up. yeah, i mean, that's a very important issue that it's lived up. i just want to mention here, like in long beach, what happened in me me is not our muslim time will support this start at the middle of june and it got deals up to september. but this time we started re our li doing
10:44 pm
our summer time, and it's not only started already. and we also, since our 1st flood, at the end of me and with a very short period of time, the committee to say is 2nd heat of the flood. at june, so see, i mean, what the previous panelist was talking about the sudden onset disaster like the disaster that you are not prepared at all. there is no oddity warning, nothing. and all of the sudden the disaster in fear and your whole life is if you both stating the effect it. so to florida in one month and not that it's not reading their fees in. one is at the summer and varies at the very beginning of school and it's kind of the boss stating situation for the company. the actually to cool. well, another thing i just want to add here like why these things are we are trying to referring as a frequency and cd because last time, especially in northern nissan of india,
10:45 pm
they saw for florida in 956 also that this 1495 each means after 50 years, also that now they are suffering it in 2020 so i didn't use after 3 to 7 years. see the sun lamp is getting video and also the level of walker is getting really higher than the expectation. and for sure, for india and bunger, this slide is nothing you need be not, but they have a lot in fancy, freakish and, and i mean the frequency that's the newer experience with our infrastructure, our community skip ability, nothing is actually aligned with these to deal with these kind of thought that's wanting another is regarding the reference of often damage. the key part of lawson damages. that gives a very clear indication. i would like to refer the, i think this is 346, that's going to slow you down
10:46 pm
a little bit. nelson damage means that the rich countries in the well, the course the climate change have to pay out. it is not a popular idea with the rich countries in the world. as a lot of pushback about that chevron, would you just briefly make your point because we have audience on youtube who want to talk to you as well. go at. yeah. just to add about the loss and damage. it's clearly pace like you are no longer in the formation of adaptation, you don't have that capability of adopted. and that means these are so far more than damage that you are going to know that you're going to say in the rest of your life. so that's why we, when we talk about lawson damage with the community, who has no contribution in this problem, but they are suffering the are the things i'm most of that's the foreign retreat that they've looked country or the highest major country who contributed the most. and have to take the liability and responsibility for vision. but let me ask you this very directly, very candidly and then having you come in here which countries who
10:47 pm
are responsible for climate change are actually saying to bangladesh and india. let me help you with how you cope with these extreme flooding. can you name a few countries, siobhan, or from the lawson damage context? it's very unfortunate. no, not. all right, honey. go ahead. i've got some youtube question for you. go ahead. public. go ahead . yes, i think what the computer and the course of our reporting is that what's happening is also micro well, developing countries around the world are, could be facing. it's a tough road between developmental pressure and climate change. which because look happening next. but this tell us that caused by human intervention that have sort of caused this problem, all of which exacerbated by climate change, which is something that a country like in den bundle,
10:48 pm
they have contributed very little to have. they can. i also have some questions from youtube. i got one for poverty, and i've got one for you, richie daphne audience watching right now to the flood effect, densely populated areas such as backhoe, are just the rule areas of bangladesh and northern india. what you know, i mean book are in fact a lot of areas that of dead were affected, worried that we're not in quip, to be to, to sort of come back or address this problem because they hadn't seen this kind of flooding. so we went to cities the when to turn out that we went to more far flung areas. but at the end of the day, the fact is that when we spoke to officials, they said that while they hacked off and they are doing evacuations and relief distribution, they simply didn't have the nice horses to, to sort of have as many people as, as they wanted to not everybody could make it to relief cancer. not everybody got more than one square day, despite the government giving it a lot of relief,
10:49 pm
which let me put you in here. i've got a question for you. this one comes from actually 909. why? can't the politicians focus a little more on making life better for people in india are going to adam bangladesh, rather than having useless debates that aroused violence. if they use their heads and develop a good drainage system, these things would never happen right? to ease that possible kind of good drainage system. so extreme monsoons honestly, i just say yes and no to that answer to that question. so firstly, yes, politicians on the policymakers can do far more than they're doing right now. we know that climate change often damages are, couldn't. these events are becoming more than more frequent and intense. and all the prime minister been mentioning that. but what we really need is the scene from psycho and often and other sections that occurred in both in india and bangladesh.
10:50 pm
because there was a very good only wanting system accused life received. then us in case of flooding or drought system. in fact, india does not have a warning system and then explain to us because we do not have already warning system for jo, it is increasing in its impact because it acts like will 5 and like silent killer. but having said that, one, you need to be more prepared, the policy makers need to have only one system pick some anticipation measures because clearly the level of time with the fact that happening because to rent it, it's clearly beyond the limits of coping capacities of commune i want to just say, i want you to say that again because when we talk about climate crises, the climate emergency, the deadline for pushing back of when it will be too late. i think that climate scientists are being generous because they don't want to sky people into inaction. i want to debilitate the world, but really,
10:51 pm
where we're talking about india and bangladesh right now. richey, please reinforce what he's saying. chop and also said it a little bit earlier, but i, when i international audience here loud and clear, go ahead. repeat it please. you know, what has happened is because there's so much of debate and discussion and clamor justice about compensation that be lost focus from lawson damage these events already are getting on the ground. it's not that it's not because it's for the 1st time that lawson damage was even mentioned in negotiations properly. that was in last year. scott mitchell, but no on it's paying up that 20. what is it? is it 10? yeah, behind they 5th thing is we have 2 members of the go to paris accord the agreement . everybody was like, wow, we saved a well no to know but a little bit and all of those promises made empower. i said people were excited. this is for our grandkids. they've held not a single penny. and it's i'm and you see her from you. the problem is, you know,
10:52 pm
i'm not even going into the direction of climate compensation and clamor justice is the one you only are you yeah. talking about yeah. no, what i'm purely, i talking about is communities and countries. right? not right now, i guess, suffering from these impacts. we need practical solutions for them. all tactical solutions could make one because i'm going to bring sharp. i didn't hear name one practical solution retractable solutions could be there could be some areas which are increasingly becoming inhabitable uninhabited. that's what we are, the beginning of the move people to safety. think anticipatory measures move people to safety. because in normal videos, i'm not going to be habitable anymore, then didn't come all the way to your to i wish i was saying move people to safety. so they move out of where they're living right now for rather evacuate because yes that i'm a migration. all right, okay, i'm not that got that. i want to share. i wanna share the conversation. richard, you're so much knowledge you're dropping on us right now. i need to share it with
10:53 pm
sharon as well. i'm going to go though, via doctor milan cia, because where we are now needs more planning than we're seeing on the ground. this is what she told us earlier, and then sharp, and please pick up. what do we do? festival dot america. what we need is a long term adaptation plan for the region. and most of the efforts have been directed towards providing immediately for the be. what we need is some kind of long don't planning so that we are not to leave it up to bed, but also really to predict lives and livelihoods. for instance, ministries of animal husbandry, agriculture held. the always need to be working together consistently to make sure that there is no outbreak of disease. often the floods, the livestock can be moved even before the flood strike. so
10:54 pm
more than immediate relief, we need to now focus on long sharp, on please pick up. i just want to add 2 point here. i mean, 1st of all, if again the i physically report clearly felt like we're soon going to reach about 1.5. if you go by the thicket, if you're not going to review with our greenhouse gas engine, the 2nd floor and it's regarding the long term strategy. i just want to ask a question to the audience and also to professionally i live on the issue. i mayor of small hold farmer and i lost my land and everything. and now i am kind of forced to move to india. so when i'm moving to india, i become an illegal migrant. i'm no longer yvonne la beer. she. i'm a climate victim and i'm an illegal. my grand, i lost my identity. what solution you are going to give b? my occupation is lost. and my, i mean there are so many on economic lawson damage and how you're going to address
10:55 pm
these laws. we've read the long term strategy and all the other form. 7 so i can know how these people are watching right now, and what can we do? what needs to be done? you articulated so beautifully what the issue is. it's the, the if lack of planning, lack of preparation. and now the weather conditions of o x dream that it's really difficult to cope with those weather conditions. what needs to be done? first of all, we really need to address and acknowledge the loss or damage that is happening at the very ground level. and then based on that, we need to come up with a solution that can go with the for mean, if you need a 4th, we can think of our sustainable infrastructure are bitter finance system and other facilities. but we need to think about the need of the community, the community who is forced to migrated from one place to another,
10:56 pm
or maybe from one country to another. but 1st thing we need to keep in mind what these be our need because the law we are suffering that might not be able to be adopted might not be able to be adjusted. in that case, we talk about the compensation. okay. these are the stations richie, just do, excuse me, because job i mentioned the community, you go to the community, what do they need? i am going to and on the community we saudi with those voices of survivors from bangladesh is recent flawed. i'm going to go back a few days to pass any reporting. and what comes after slot after flood comes disease. if you're not ready. his property reporting in the field. biddy the large bunk, she and her daughter had been staying in the relief council for days. they were forced to flee when water got through a window and flooded their home. she says she got an infection from the dirty water
10:57 pm
. what did i say at them and we are facing many difficulties. i have barely slept since we moved to this relief. come on, we are very 10, even others are also losing their sleep. hundreds of thousands of other people have also been displaced by heavy flooding in some states in, in dells northeast. the district is one of the was effected more than 4 and a half 1000 people here are living in relief. cam. heavy rain fall in the his is bringing more flooding in areas like these flood waters of blocking major roads and preventing trucks or bringing supplies. people say stuff struggling to get food and medicines have me in the last one minutes of i show. so i'm going to be very brief . how are people doing this is going to be every day life now monsoon season, drought floods, landslide, etc, etc. how are they doing? are they ready for this? no, they're not. what we saw and what reported was stories of helplessness of devastation,
10:58 pm
re spoke to people. you know, i talking to people, you know, women broke down. they didn't know what to do with a church. and they still know drinking water supply. that is does that, but i do want to end on a hopefully no, we're talking about. thank you. have any preparation and authority said it that they are trying and that is a project that are happening into it. but again, i shall thank you for being part of the stream today. we really appreciate it. i will see you next time. take everybody. ah ah.
