point 4000000 internal climate migrants over the next 30 years and many more who will migrate abroad. the number of guatemalan migrants registered at the southwest u.s. border has quintupled in the past 3 is. is an author who writes about security policy on climate change he's been observing developments at the u.s. mexican border for years. if you go along the 2000 mile us mexico border there's about 650 miles of either walls or barriers of some sort there's all kinds of technologies billions and billions of dollars and technologies from high tech cameras cameras that can see 7 miles away radar systems drones there's a fleet of approximately 10 drones there's other things that you see and u.s.

military operations there's been a lot of this kind of transfers from exams abroad to here. now the united states has a new conflict zone on its own doorstep it's a crisis that the us and other industrial nations have helped to create. there $700.00 times more carbon emissions from the united states since $900.00 than . el salvador and honduras combined 700 times more yet this is like this this is a country that's that's that's fortifying is the borders from people who are obviously impacted by those sorts of excessive amounts of emissions and and i think how could that be possible i mean we've known about the science for so many years and we had more than ever before but the same time there's more border walls than ever before to you like it's like this emphasis like this is kind of

adaptation plan right for the richer countries. when bellevue the ramos arrived in arizona 80 years ago there was no reception center for migrants. he still waiting for a permanent residence permit. to go see him the i always feel like a guatemalan. i don't feel american because that's where i come from and i'll only be here for a while sponsors yeah i don't have a green card yet but what can i do no matter what i'll always be quite a model and it. c c c c c c

doesn't it has a work that has to be renewed every 2 years even if you were to be expelled what he's achieved here is something that many back home can only dream of and he earns enough to help support his family in guatemala. he grew up there his parents farm as one of 9 children. discourses gave. i didn't enjoy my childhood all that much. but it was an ordinary childhood. we grew up working. my brothers work with my father my sisters with my mother. in 1st. then i started to look for a way to earn a living and how i could continue my studies. so i got a job in a workshop. here
5:34 pm
in the us he works as a freelance gardener. gets mother. it's very different from guatemala isn't a lot of growers in the hot season it's the moving on there's hardly any water with . arizona has a desert climate and a severe lack of water life here is only possible thanks to water pipe from the far away colorado river. but the cities of phoenix and tucson still use the resource wastefully. they counted among the least sustainable cities in the world. hundreds of thousands of liters of water go into keeping golf courses in the deserts of green the. first being that it's
5:35 pm
a different life here they have more ways of treating the water and we don't have that in guatemala and i can't judge if that's fair or unfair or things are more advanced air. when you look at their houses and they're not wasting water or using it for their plants and since they have money they can pay for as much water as they want. does he says some day he'd like to live like his clients in his own house with a god and. to achieve that goal he works 6 days a week. just to. the bank it's that you. thank somebody. thank you.
5:36 pm
if you just turn $65.00 cash for an hour of gardening. please keep. eating meat. does he married a guatemalan woman in the us she comes from the same height and region as he does. he lives here in a trailer park because wife and daughter. would want to own. 'd
5:37 pm
up on. that. on sundays likes to drive out into the desert the hills remind him of home. he'd like to go back to guatemala someday to see his family but without a green card he wouldn't be able to reenter the u.s. this. thought that is it makes me sad is that it's tough to be separated from your family but all that i mean is they're over there and only i'm here. so what can you do for them as i said it's done were separated not because we want to be but because we are forced to be by necessity. over there you can't make ends meet but a lot of some. thought
5:38 pm
. he has not. let. her live. and not the mold. at the club. of where. but you know. who you. know on the ballot here as long as this will remain it's been a long gun will remain the no one gun. yet. my. conditions in the ocean are changing the fisherman a catching less and less they can hardly on
5:39 pm
a profit nowadays. almost every family has at least one member who's left been long gone. and i mean my beloved leaving here they come to work overseas or and i doubt that a mouse may need. as far as i can tell the delta level here in benaud i'm gonna continue to rise. real continue to build it up to reclaim our beloved neighborhood. the people have been a long gone but this place vanished beneath the whites move on and.
5:40 pm
not everyone here believes that the community can be saved. every day joe joe's neighbor melody finds her house flooded. not in a month single day i mean my dream of settling in another place not here but my husband jay is from here and he doesn't want to leave i want to reach a friend of mine and out in front of all us again but jerry comes from here and he won't leave this place in the shadow is the. one. who was that i. thought only a little. girl you meet somebody does so by you.
5:41 pm
is the number 1300 sites all on the ballot man and i don't know how to get. what they are. all. more or less. very. i love. that. even the little line. in the. beginning of the i don't. want them to resume. to me easy. to go big i know what i mean i've been there a plenty of medications i wouldn't for example get warnings on the radio and on the television. when
5:42 pm
a strong time food is approaching and we start tying down the roofs. torn up that i need to tie them down so they won't be blown away by the will. and we usually buy supplies before the storm so that we have something to eat the basics without god while the storm sweeps through the village on the last. buggy oh. there are a lot of good. from typhoons to storms extreme weather has grown more frequent in recent years scientists still don't know to what extent this rise is connected to human induced climate change. any place you look at that supposedly a victim of climate change know they're a victim of lack of freedom they have very little capability and so yeah everything sucks including the climate sucks but if not to put more c
5:43 pm
o 2 in it is just because life sucks when you're a human being on a difficult planet with very low capability so for example if you look at the us we have every form of climate imaginable we have a polar climate in alaska we have like swampy florida of all the way of california where i live which i think is the nicest climate but we all have life expectancies . over 75 why because when human beings are sufficiently capable they can adapt to and even master any climate versus when they have very low capability when they're in primitive and poor societies they can't deal with anything so i think one of the big things that's misplaced in the climate's question is there's not enough focus on how do we increase human capability. i'm an energy philosopher which means i try to help people think more clearly about energy and environmental issues. alex epstein is widely known as a climate change skeptic at least 13 percent of americans share his views on global
5:44 pm
warming a higher proportion than in any other western country epstein advises the oil companies on how to sell their products better also using climate denial arguments people have a very deep seated fear of changing our environment and i think that causes that when when we change our environment through fossil fuels through say having a warming influence on climate i think people tend to exaggerate and get overly fearful versus looking at it proportion. since the 19th century the u.s. has burned more comb oil and natural gas than any other country the current administration has refused to take responsibility for that and in 2019 officially gave notice that the u.s. is withdrawing from the paris climate agreement. that's bad news for the countries in the global south bed already the ones most affected by climate change and on
5:45 pm
least able to deal with the impact. i think it's been great for us to have a lot of energy but also it's been amazingly positive for the poorer parts of the world that we've used all this energy so what's happened is we have been spending decades and decades and decades thinking. about how to improve life including things like medical discoveries that have then been shared in large part with the poor parts of the world so there's a certain air of that a we've made people's lives worse but no the wealthy world has made in so far as they've created all of this innovation has made everyone's lives better so i don't think we should feel guilty about it and i think we should be very proud i think that humanity there are a lot of problems but we life has never been better and earth has never been a better place to live and i think most people if they think about it would agree i don't think they would want to go back to 50 years ago or 100 years ago.
5:46 pm
in the arizona desert scientists at the biosphere 2 experimental station trying to find out how to model and perhaps a the earth's major ecosystems. the biosphere started out as the world's largest ecological experiment ever conducted with a closed door controlled environment to try to replicate our systems and to better understand that. the earth is truly unique and we know that that uniqueness is what allows us to live and survive and if those conditions change so much so it could definitely threaten or it will threaten our survival and so i
5:47 pm
think understanding what those potential implications are before they actually play out are crucial. the research center houses 7 model ecosystems it's a unique place well under close to real world conditions it's possible to test how natural systems will respond to extreme environmental change the reset. those can control the climate and measure how the ecosystem reacts. in the model rain forest an international team of scientists are studying what happens when there's less rain. and i'm monetarist that's been the unique thing is that in the biosphere we can control the entire forest and we can decide when it will rain and how much. we're measuring how the tropical rain forest responds when it's still in its normal state
5:48 pm
as well and then we're going to initiate a long drought and see how the ecosystem behaves as it was a steam dish for hit. so hard once it gets dry at the rate of photosynthesis goes down we want to know at what point a system like this reaches its limits seem all. it's important to know what will happen in the world's forests in the future. the boy. trainees store c o 2 the climate gas that causes this atmospheric warming which arises from the combustion of fossil substances song and asked take it up during photosynthesis and have it 5 c.m.'s that's what we see around the world is that up to 30 percent of the emissions that we put into the atmosphere can be taken up again by forests so they act as a huge buffer that helps mitigate the climate effect without them it would be much
5:49 pm
worse fusion among scientists 1st warned about global warming decades ago but it took years for the message to even begin to sink him. today it's apparent that the climate is changing faster than scientists have predicted. but at the end of the day. all inhabitants of earth and so what happens here in the u.s. or what happens in europe or asia at some point is going to end back all of us so i think it behooves all of us to recognize that we are seeing changes that those changes have impacts on ecosystems on resources and we are dependent on those systems for existence and so again if they change so dramatically it is going to end packed us and potentially if we're not able to adapt we all know water
5:50 pm
survived. the lion seeking help to defy the extreme weather potatoes on her livelihood now she's lost not only a large part of the harvest but has too few seeds for planting next year a seed bank helps farmers like. sailor their. love of syrian it's thought that in the lead up ways. he heard me you know what. are you going up or you know as i can say you 53 domestic potato varieties grow in the fields here the seed bank gives this in return she'll have to give up some of her next harvest.
5:51 pm
it's up up. yeah. a farming co-operative collects and stores seeds from local craft. yes that way local growers can obtain seeds if need be so when the next drought hits they're less likely to have to give up their farms and leave. in some villages here half the population has already gone to the u.s. . the rest the most fun cause must ghost neighbors is what the owners of these are not your pipe houses are called they live in the u.s. but send money home to build their american style dream houses for when they return
5:52 pm
to. the cemetery and told our son. also has tales of migration to tell. american flags decorate the graves of those who died as immigrants in the u.s. . in the. when her husband left 3 years ago he made that decision together. they knew they wouldn't see each other again for many years. and when. they come i know that he's far from home and we're a long distance apart. but i
5:53 pm
also know that we did it because things are very hard here with actual ups of it but from a to let it the cons the end and i know in my heart that this distance will not ruin our relationship. i know my husband will come back. up it's hard to leave the back of the. queue because. scientists agree that climate change can no longer be stopped but its magnitude will depend on whether people are prepared to radically alter their lifestyles. as i drive myself for a and they see all the cars that are going back and forth and 3 lanes of traffic 4 lanes of traffic and i think that as
5:54 pm
a person that's aware of the kind of crime and crisis and i and you think oh is there any progress being made and all you have to do is go out on the main avenues and think you know like i don't know if i turn on the television i don't know how many times i'm told by a car i'm you know i one hand there's a climate crisis right then and then other hand i've always been told been told by the new car new car new car. i mean as you look around the world it's all adding up it's the stresses put on upon people are getting worse and worse. i think what the world needs to be looking at is we're going to have people on the move right this is there something set in motion that cannot be stopped like there's going to be places that can no longer be lived in and now this idea of a border bordered world is an idea of exclusion we're certain people have access and others do not and and we have to start thinking of or old of where there's
5:55 pm
going to be a lot of people on the move and how can we how can we begin to understand that and maybe make it probably make or begin to at least forge a sort of new world where are those people will be more welcome. reasoning and i'm going to give people i sometimes dream with potential. because you know people stop in this because they didn't know something called sloan's punish the home won't. be good i'm going to promise that he would not do the same thing you get. better not when you look at what's happening now the timing slowly but in different places they understand and i think it's the same scenario hoover again that there may have been new. but in that scenario. joe joe might soon find himself
5:56 pm
a climate migrants if sea levels keep rising not just his home but the entire island district could be submerged. how long that might take nobody knows. the. little who stood there and. i don't like what's happening. especially after becoming generations. i pity those children hard to grow out and about experiencing the beauty of. men that in the last. i don't know if we continue on this path i won't be able to do anything about climate change.
5:57 pm
in the highlands of the descendants of the maya believe that the global climate is out of kilter because humans have lost their respect form of a. planet. is that this time it depends on us. and say if we conserve and care for the tree will have a chance of surviving and. that if we continue like we're doing now and cut down the trees the future for our children will be very hard and sad at that. thank god we still have water and trees and can survive. but if we continue to destroy in nature and. in the future people will have nothing. if you're trying to . reinvent facts.

6:01 pm
19 infection rate per capita in europe we take a look inside a hospital straining to cope plus donald trump votes early in the u.s. presidential election as america's covert crisis worsens with find out how he and rival joe biden are confronting the issue in the final days before the. american evans team thanks for joining me here in germany the number of people who have died from covert 19 has now surpassed 10000 this follows a sharp spike in the number of new cases in recent weeks with a record 14000 new infections reported just in the past 24 hours health officials are warning that the country faces a very serious situation
6:02 pm
a grim milestone painful for every family if his tone changed germany has become the 6th european country to reach 10000 coby 19 deaths. after a peak in mid april the daily death toll was much lower over the summer for most of july august and september corona deaths in any 24 hour period were in single figures in the last 3 weeks the mortality rate has begun to rise sharply but there are hopes it may not return to the level it reached earlier this year we had very high death toll in the springtime especially for the elderly and now we have more rate is higher in the younger population and that explains why they were telling the rate is lower because younger people do not succumb i think over 19 they usually get sick sometimes also very severe is severely sick however the usually do
6:03 pm
not die compared with some other countries fewer people in germany have died from the disease the number of deaths per 1000000 of population is 120 neighboring france are seen more than 4 times their death rate meanwhile china and india have reported much lower numbers of fatalities by head of population those figures show germany may have dealt well with the virus so far but infections are also rising again more steeply than deaths and experts are increasingly concerned as they look towards the coming months. we don't know how the inspection situation will develop we have to assume that the number of serious cases will increase and that the number of deaths will also rise. if that assumption proves correct many more funerals will have to be held under the shadow of covert 19. well with me in the studio now is d. w. political correspondent tons brons hello to you hans so 10000 dead in germany
6:04 pm
from covert 1000 that's 10000 families who are suffering what are the implications of germany passing this milestone of course you can say is just a symbolic number it doesn't have any meaning in itself but it is a signal it's a warning signal to german society to the german population that not only all the infections increasing again very very quickly but also the number of deaths are increasing exponentially the number of days are increasing in parallel to the number of infections and so they has to be the continued appeal to the population to heed the rules to a mosque to stick to hygiene protocols and so on. what has to say that germany is not as badly as affected as other countries but these are tens of thousands of people who have been affected by somebody dying in the family that's right we can even say germany was perhaps very lucky he didn't suffer nearly as badly as other
6:05 pm
european countries even though we're seeing this increase now a very sharp increase so what's causing that i think what you have to say is that the 1st wave was of a comma was stopped in the sense of by using the most heavy measure that was available a total lockdown of the country. as a result the number of infections did get reduced very quickly and people then had thought well this is over that the virus has in some sense been defeated during the summer months the doctor who obviously relaxed people relaxed they went into gatherings they had parties and so on. as a result as the autumn started as the fall season started here in the northern hemisphere people continued to go into apologies to go into balls to and as a result as the autumn started as the fall season. started here in the northern hemisphere people continue to go into apologies to go into balls to meet in clubs
6:06 pm
and in sa and in. enclosed rooms they act as a very dangerous behavior and that's the result of what we're seeing all well hons germany's chancellor has been speaking out to the public about the corona virus pandemic she again called on germans to help fight the rising infection rates let's have a quick listen to what she had to say the isn't true is getting that's deal with we are not helpless in facing the virus our actions determine the strength and speed at which it spreads and the imperative thing is for all of us to reduce contact to meet fewer people than those i think we all stick together we will meet the enormous challenge posed by this virus all. so. they're stressing the importance of individual responsibility which i found very interesting so does that mean she's not about to impose a nationwide lockdown and response of the search that is something that the
6:07 pm
government is trying at all costs to avoid a nationwide locked on instead one is trying at the moment to focus the measures on areas where the numbers of infections are in danger of getting out of control so there's at least one area in germany and southern bavaria which at the moment has a local lockdown already but what she's saying is that everyone in germany has the responsibility to to to actually stick to the rules and what she's been doing has been very unusual she has been accused of being alarmist but in fact warnings have proven correct and we could go you know you know weekly podcast she criticized the regional leaders in germany saying that there measures were not strict enough and not all this we can help out because what she's in fact on is repeated her part because of last week so she's really raising her finger to the population and saying stick to these rules be careful there's still a chance of getting this under control if you we're mosques wash your hands stay
6:08 pm
away from people and do not go into gatherings well here's hoping that people actually heed the warnings from the chatter on ponce thank you very much always good to talk to you. well of all the countries in europe belgium is among the hardest hit by the pandemic it has the highest number of covert $1000.00 offense infections per capita the region of aloni already has a nighttime curfew but it's hospitals are still straining to cope and staff fear they'll soon face some very hard choices. the briefing between shifts at this hospital in charlotte was and bologna our staff are already preparing for the worst. is it because i want a new long i'm already afraid of the moment we reach our limits and have to choose whom we take in and who gets to be treated. should it be deferred to or the 60 year old. i don't have to answer. 120 new

kogut 1000 patients in 20 days belgium is experiencing deja vu the situation is as warring as it was at the beginning of the pandemic the belgian government has imposed new regulations no spectators at sporting events almost no students at universities but so far no lockdown there is no regulation will itself stop the virus from spreading it's up to us to change our behavior in order to stop it but that almost of the. experts however are quick to criticize the measures. the regulations won't bite fast enough the situation is set to get dramatic. the lonia region went with its own measures extending its nighttime curfew the region is on the brink of a total lockdown in the hospital in charlotte while this patient has survived the

worst. day of all but i was really scared once this to see this horrible i didn't take it seriously at 1st. one life saved but more patients will be coming. it's difficult to cope with all this psychologically the work leaves its marks on the stuff for them politics is not keeping up with the pace of the bars. here's a look now at some other developments in the global health emergency poland's president andre due to has tested positive for covert 19 and is in self isolation budget a video message on twitter due to said he has no symptoms. has also hit a record number of daily infections on friday more than 15000 new cases were

for those of us who follow the world's game there's no question germany is a football country germans are well known for being football sest and not just about the big boys like byron or dora. but many might not realize. this is that germany is also a country of immigrants 12000000 people nearly 15 percent of the population are immigrants or children of immigrants and many of them live football too. even founded some of their own football clubs which raises some questions power football and identity intertwined and how does the sport we love fit into integration and society join me an immigrant from the people's republic of new jersey as i travel germany to see how the immigrant identity shapes these clubs on and off the pitch.
6:18 pm
and what better place to start talking about immigrant clubs than me most stereotypically german city there is most of what the world associates with germany is actually but the area october fenced beer gardens and a worryingly large variety of true shaped meats. and munich is right in the center of it all but much like the rest of germany there is plenty more to this city and later it was in and the mighty munich is diverse and big and has much more going on that over 40 percent of munich residents are immigrants or their descendants really mixes things up. that's especially true in football but you care to mention have made history with their promotion to the 3rd division for coochie you are just one of hundreds of clubs founded by immigrants throughout germany these teams serve as backbones and community centers for micra in minority groups throughout the country to q.q. means turkish power and the club's identity is key superfan hockey basically personifies
6:19 pm
the club having 1st gone to a match at just 5 he's also got a wonderfully thick unique x. this is a moment when they're going to. be good in the fight i'm. so these should be a. chance not just an important touchstone for fans the club's identity also appeals to players though there's been so much change lately midfielder 2 since their longest serving player at just 2 seasons. and he's coming so i know. it's possible he defaults founded in 1975 tricky to are rooted in unix turkish community players used to be almost exclusively turkish or turkish german in recent years the squad has become
6:20 pm
much more international signifying a shift in club culture so after q 2 traded their identity for success. this. year. it's a moment. in building the squad success comes before everything. immigrant clubs tend to start looking different on the field behind the league they climb to try to stick to their roots when possible starting. from the quality. from the early.
6:21 pm
promotion to one pretty history books making them the 1st to german immigrant club to be promoted to the national fully professional level though it has surely by football romance 3 straight promotions were bankrolled by former player and current investor in president haasan keep. so the fans don't seem to mind we had the pleasure of accompanying hockey and his crew as they took on their 1st ever match against hometown rivals byron 2nd team. after a brief horrifying moment of technical difficulties we were set up their fans have high expectations just. despite that much. rice is always good you would get us is going to see this. in the champions league because it is. and as crazy as that sounds the club investor and fans
6:22 pm
are all extremely ambitious. for a future his 1st day in the 3rd division was a good one became a way with the well earned draw against the reigning champ and that's a solid start. with such a prominent population throughout germany turkey to see their unique identity as a selling point everyone in the whole country with turkish roots is a potential family. shown. still many of these clubs immigrant histories are more trivia current realities germany has an abundance of active immigrant clubs throughout the country to this day nearly 400 in the top 9 leagues with countless more in the even lower
6:23 pm

in berlin alone and there are nearly 200000 polish immigrants and germans of polish descent which is probably helped polonia grow so quickly we haven't forgotten that missing mom and for that i'm. going to outspend i think. let. them. know open to everyone nearly all the polonius players are polish unlike a chick you choose the identity on the pitch is just as important as the one off according to the tick it's still not just about the soccer as big. as it's being. it's all sponsors and been has been stressing can. be especially special points with help from skins i just want. the course of august polonia turn big matches into a full on party giving the whole city a chance to experience polish hospitality. into the sun to speed.

a kind of defacto migrant club that performs a lot of the same roles that an explicit one like turkey with that's clear the 2nd you talk to a player like mickey is he's been in germany about 4 years as we speak with the committee here and. this is. 2 years ago norden know it best we're looking to bring in a host of new players. since the successfully filled out the squad by connecting with an ethiopian cultural organisation that. you know the players. are just issued in fighting to keep. many of noida nor the best players or refugees well a number of them work grueling night shifts schedules all of that melts away at least
