of the other side of the aisle to provide judge barrett with a respectful and dignified hearing that she deserves and frankly that our country deserves i urge lawmakers and members of the media to refrain from personal or partisan attacks and the stakes for our country are incredibly high rulings that the supreme court will issue in the coming years will decide the survival of our 2nd amendment our religious liberty our public safety and so much more to maintain security liberty and prosperity we must preserve our priceless heritage of a nation of laws and there is no one better to do that that amy coney parrot. law and order is the foundation of the american system of justice no matter the issue no matter the case before her i am supreme lee

11:16 pm
president and the 2nd lady and to so many others here for your kindness on this rather overwhelming occasion i fully understand that this is a momentous decision for a president and if the senate does me the honor of confirming me i pledge to discharge the responsibilities of this job to the very best of my ability i love the united states and i love the united states constitution i am truly. i am truly humbled by the prospect of serving on the supreme court should i be confirmed i will be mindful of who came before me. the flag of the united states is still flying at half staff in memory of justice ruth bader ginsburg to mark the end of a great american life justice ginsburg began her career at
11:17 pm
a time when women were not welcome in the legal profession but she not only broke glass ceilings she smashed. for that she has won the admiration of women across the country and indeed all over the world. she was a woman of enormous talents and consequence and her life of public service serves as an example to assault particularly poignant to me was her long and deep friendship with justice antonin scalia my own mentor justices scalia and ginsburg disagreed fiercely in print without rancor and person their ability to maintain a warm and rich friendship despite their differences even inspired an opera these
11:18 pm
2 great americans demonstrated that arguments even about matters of great consequence need not destroy affection and both my personal and professional relationships i strive to meet that standard i was lucky enough to clerk for justice scalia and given his incalculable influence on my life i am very moved to have members of the scalia family here today including his dear wife maureen i clerked for justice scalia more than 20 years ago but the lessons i learned still resonate his judicial philosophy is mine to a judge must apply the law as written. judges are not policy makers and they must be resolute and setting aside any policy views they might hold the president has asked me to become the 9th justice and as it happens i'm used to
11:19 pm
being in a group of 9 my family our family includes mate my husband jesse ama vivian peter liam juliette and benjamin they have an engine and peter as the president said were born in haiti and they came to us 5 years apart when they were very young and the most revealing fact about benjamin our youngest is that his brothers and sisters on reservedly identify him as their favorites of bling our children obviously make our life very full while i am a judge i'm better known back home as a room parent carpool driver and birthday party planner when schools went remote last spring i tried on another hat jesse and i became cold principals of the barrett learning academy and yes the list of enrolled students was a very long one our children are my greatest joy even though they deprived me of
11:20 pm
any reasonable reasonable amount of sleep. i couldn't manage this very full life without the end wavering support of my husband jesse at the start of our marriage i imagine that we would run our household as partners as it has turned out jesse does far more than his share of the work to my chagrin i learned a dinner recently that my children consider him to be the better cook for 21 years jesse has asked me every single morning what he can do for me that day. and though i almost always say nothing he still finds ways to take things off my plate and that's not because he has a lot of free time he has a busy law practice it's because he is a superb and generous husband and i am very fortunate jesse that.
11:21 pm
jesse and i have a life full of relationships not only with our children but with siblings friends and fearless babysitters one of whom is with us today i am particularly grateful to my parents mike and linda kone i spent the bulk of i have spent the bulk of my adulthood as a midwesterner but i grew up in their new orleans home and as my brother and sisters can also attest mom and dad's generosity extends not only to us but to more people than any of us could count they are an inspiration it is important at a moment like this to acknowledge family and friends but this evening i also want to acknowledge you my fellow americans the president has nominated me to serve on
11:22 pm
the united states supreme court and that institution belongs to all of us if confirmed i would not assume that role for the sake of those in my own circle and certainly not for my own sake i would assume this role to serve you i would discharge the judicial oath which requires me to administer justice without respect to persons due equal rights to the poor and rich and faithfully and impartially discharge my duties under the united states constitution i have no illusions that the road ahead of me will be easy either for the short term or the long haul. i never imagined that i would find myself in this position but now that i am i assure you that i will meet the challenge with both humility and courage members of
11:23 pm
the united states senate i look forward to working with you during the confirmation process and i will do my very best to demonstrate that i am worthy of your support . ok with me now in studio is dick over inverts associate fellow of the german council on foreign relations and washington bureau chief there in s. paul we've just been hearing amy kone barrett nominee president trumps nominee for the supreme court speaking there was start with you here in studio nicole no surprise obviously but what what do you take away from that we've seen trump listing her achievements and her qualifications a career but also bring her out as a family person a regular american absolutely and i was very surprised that also on her truth conspire against her she did too so they try or are they try to
11:24 pm
to be the stars in a very friendly note. i think also very interesting she has an excellent education and she pointed out twice what her main goal will be and how she will work and the striking part is that she will very much obey tooth texts that there won't be much conception then they should and text only ization off you know how she works as a josh but really sticks to the written word which is a feature which misconstrued didn't do in the same manner because she thought it has to be more put into the current situation and she had to think about things how you would apply certain. texts into reality now so there you already see she is the known this is skins for it was seen. let's go to. washington in the us
11:25 pm
how is this news going to be received is no surprise we've been talking about this that it would be amy coney barrett so how do you think americans rules will respond to this. but 1st of all all told me. donald trump. did a very good job regarding the election campaign he really made it crystal clear that this is one of the most important duties of president test who had to nominate supreme court justices having that said there is it's in the room kind of that he might if he gets reelected that he might have for the 4th time in office the chance to pick a 4th supreme court justice and really as we said earlier on in this show really shape the supreme court justices for the next centuries to come not centuries but the for the next 3040 years to come coming back to it just is barrett i think she did
11:26 pm
a good job in really reaching out to those who are critical with her i had the chance to really travel this country over the last weeks and well 1st of all many people say it shouldn't be donald trump who picks the successor of rb g.e. but if he does he should pick someone who is kind of able to walk the aisle who is not too conservative or too liberal so we all know that justice barrett is fairly conservative judge when it comes to issues like abortion rights and gun rights but the way she presented herself as a mother as a mother who adopted 2 kids from high e.t. i think she really was able to reach out to those who were hyper critical before the speech she just gave now here in the white house. obviously we've seen the way america is polarized at the moment but we see trump as well asking for the public to be respectful for the opponents to be respectful and
11:27 pm
dignified in the way they receive. and for the media to avoid and all and partisan attacks. what do you take from that and it's a very smart move i have to say the unpredictable president now has done something predictable you picked a conservative candidate who might support many of the things he wanted to push for and might even you know get away with things like the portable care act and now in the come pain it's an it's an important moment for him because a lot of the attention we will see in the next few weeks we shift a little bit from his not so. moderate way off off off dealing with the public his. his not very well received remarks to the candidate we see now and she seems to really sell herself very well which again gives him
11:28 pm
a little bit more the all rabbit he also would like to be more moderate in the next few weeks something i think we will but it's a smart move on his part because again the attention would shift a little bit away from a lot of things he did in the past and weren't good for his campaign ok we'll rounded out nicole and associates fellow of the german council on foreign relations thank you and. bureau chief in washington thank you as well. you're watching the news room but you can keep up to date with all the news around the clock on our website it's called i'm told me a lot of oil for me and of the team thank you for joining us.

well take a look at this simple idea that could make all planets a little bit whoa plastic free. around 8000000 pieces of plastic end up in our oceans every day each can take more than 400 years to decompose avoiding plastic uses one solution biodegradable products like this another. researchers at a san diego lab created a new material it's made from an algae base and can decompose naturally 1st they grow the algae in raceway palms then when they are fully grown they take the water out and create a gooey paste. the paste can be formed into any shape but pouring it into molds and just wait for it to dry. companies have already approached the lab
11:42 pm
about working together on everything from rigid and soft foams to paint and coatings. almost every major show manufacturer has come to talk to us about the possibility of using our materials in their products we're also talking to other companies for example for things like food packaging or other types of materials that we don't want to live forever in the environment we really want to those to be able to decompose or be able to be recycled. to new sandals could be a step in the right direction to keep ordinary plastic out of the environment. and how about you if you're also doing your business tell us about visit our website or send us a tweet. hash tag doing your bit. we share your story. plastic is also a whole topic gun as the amount of land cultivated by small farmers was the
11:43 pm
amount of paste we use also increases and those products come in need of plastic containers which pose to environmental problems fost they use of the chemicals themselves and 2nd what's done with the containers once the empty too often they used things like water bottles even though they still contain choices of toxic pesticides a local initiative in gunna is going to villages to make people aware of these positive. mahmoud mohammed who didn't always keeps an eye out for them this plastic bottles used to contend chemical fertilizers and now pose a danger to people and environment farmers in ghana often leave the used bottles running around is going to properly disposed of it can affect the health of the farmer. what are bodies and even. if.
11:44 pm
mahmoud no didn't is a journalist and an environmental activist in 2015 he founded an ngo for climate change and food security focusing on farming he launched a campaign against their use of these bottles here and saw for farmers have had bad experiences with them for good i used a group chemicals on my from and would just leave the containers there that wasn't good at all as one day my grandchild picked one fish would do with eat and drink it she fed the treatment was very costly it was a big worry fortunately the aggregate office explained to us that we should not leave the used content as on the farm so now we gathered and put them in a trice cycle which goes to dump them. who for course be part of new didn't awareness raising tim he works for the agriculture ministry for and passed
11:45 pm
on his knowledge to the farmers. 'd center for climate change in food for a year now and i do kitty farmers on proper disposal of. this because the i mean there must also be a complaint our farmers are. on. the farmers i've been going through the use of the car so. you can see on how to dispose them there will be induction of these cases many of the farmers are now also taking more care when using the chemicals on their fields. before you start to spray you have to wear boots and a proper outfit you also have to use a mask so you do not inherit the chemicals. for money but. then vitamin tourists are trying to get the message across that it would be better to do without the
11:46 pm
chemicals altogether but it is difficult to persuade the farmers that are gunning for divisors would protect their land better in the long term in particular against drugs a growing problem due to climate change it's an uphill battle. that we have made across the country a lot of part of climate change some of them lead the one percent of them don't even believe that. we'll the activists are showing the farmers other ways they can help fight the effects of global warming for example with tree planting initiatives some 500 species have been planted so far. well portugal is one of the countries in southern europe that has really. after it from years of tourism both the sea cost and the capital lays born among its full visitors yet since the start of the coronavirus pandemic the number of tourists has
11:47 pm
dropped dramatically and hot a profitable industry that's right sandra but sometimes what is bad for business is one major unless for instance these down on the set of groups of tories everywhere where i am also started returning to the city. for the people of list then this is nothing short of a small miracle dolphins have returned to the river take us as terrain. many of the locals all through. time from list. seeing all these dolphins is an incredible feeling this is going to be. as a biologist inish clar often went dolphin watching in the azores these days she works as a sailing instructor. but because of the pandemic finding work is tough there are
11:48 pm
very few tourists. but in asia and her boss say there's a silver lining for the environment. this year there are more sardines and mongrel in the ocean. that's what dolphins like feeding on. a massive 50 kilo stone passes to and huge sea passes and we've never seen this many sardines worse. than that i can tell a isn't only thought of just when joyce birdwatching in the take a sterile turn. today has spotted a group of flamingos a mere 20 minute car ride from lisbon city center. if you. are not it works for an agency promoting sustainable tourism. take this
11:49 pm
river delta is 814000 hector nature reserve and the conservation area is even larger. the pied ever set as one of the most common birds and haven't seen these wetlands which are home to 200 species of migrate treat their. some $60000.00 black tailed godwit come each winter they are an endangered species. and a flamingo colony raises its young hair and stays all year round. you. know what this paradise is under threat. to push it is government has plans to build a new airport in monte should be on the vasco da gama bridge right next to the wetlands endangering this important ecosystem.
11:50 pm
h. conservation groups are now taking the government to court. me that people are taking action because of the many planes that will be landing beside these wetlands. not only dangerous for the birds the birds themselves will also pose a serious danger to the aircraft. makes no sense to build a new airport here now that lisbon has just been declared europe's green capital miles ahead of a point more. the water quality of the river take us has greatly improved according to ines that's why so many dolphins have returned. and the fact that no noisy cruise ships are harboring in the portuguese capital helps too. dolphins are very sensitive to noise. when practicable and recently my large ships are very invasive. to start fights and avoid swimming up
11:51 pm
the river and in my you know i won't list them all thirty's have plates that by 2020 to dock to cruise ships here in the new september no right beside lisbon's old town must turn off their motors to reduce emissions. he said that every cruise ship docked in lisbon will have to be connected to the electricity grid to do so for up side emissions and cut pollution in the city we'll see the good stuff out of the at the current. not in the n.h. hope also as he's will keep a promise said that liston can live up to its name of europe's green capital. dolphins are truly amazing creatures well let's return to the african continent did you know that tribe congregations in ethiopia play a key role in environmental protection it all started when deforestation began to deplete the country's indigenous tree stocks it was
11:52 pm
a congregations that fought to preserve their local forests and tame specie diversity in crawford all went to south go into where we found a community where more than 30 different kinds of trees are still growing and it turns out it's not so hard to do. for almost 25 years by governor merriam go but it's a lousy has been turned into straight forest some 200 months living here in this altar that's the way he took community in northern ethiopia. for centuries monks up preserve the forests around their churches taking care of the citizens as being a spiritual ritual for members of this faith they view the natural forest as a symbol of heaven. the ministry hands on and it's a $3.00. this is on and on the ship of the ministry we are committed to date and
11:53 pm
