9:05 am
a response from the international community, particularly from the u. s. and they were getting lots of weapons, but they need more they say, in order to be able to push back the russians. the russia just has so much more when it comes to in a tank, some artillery and these huge missiles and stuff that, that ukraine, this is a bit of a david and goliath battle, if you will. and in a president zalinski, the foreign minister here, and really the entire ukrainian, the side just calling for more weaponry because they are outnumbered. and without that weaponry, they won't be able to hold the russians back. rebecca, what can you tell us about the civilians that are still holding at these times of the east? i mean, we reported yesterday that many of them are hiding basements. oh, that's right. i mean the situation down there for civilians is incredibly dire. i mean, everyone has been following along with mattie, who, paul, you know, knowing that everyone was living in bunkers and the similar thing is happening there in the dawn bassam, this region has been bombarded for months, the civilians, they have been living without electricity. and now the utilities for weeks even

9:10 am
a few days ago is not going to happen anymore or is made much hotter. the group of 7 leading industrial nations, the g 7 has promised to double its financial support to help developing countries cope with climate change that could benefit parts of africa being slammed by floods, droughts, and other extreme weather events. despite producing a minimal amount of greenhouse gas emissions, extreme weather makes it harder for people to feed themselves with food scarcity, feeling. conflict and displacement and climate change hits. populations who are already vulnerable from poverty in countries where governments often fail to provide basic resources. africans, the world's least industrialized continent. that means it contributes the least to climate change. in the past, 60 years africa's only produced a minute amount of global emissions. asia, europe, and north america have each emitted over 8 times more greenhouse gases than africa

9:13 am
africa needs a mix of fossil fuels and renewables. i'm going to be frank, i hope i don't upset anybody. it is crazy. europe is wallowing in gas. jeremy use a lot of of gas, a russian gas f. i've actually half of african gas is exported to europe and didn't have 6 handling big many a bible was out power and we was no longer all you cannot, you cannot, you cannot use jazz yet. if this is morally bankrupt. renewable is a main source of live twisty for 20 true african african countries, nor european, or any other continental can compare with that. so we're doing our best. but renewable are not enough when it that it mix football now. and the champions league final kicks off later today in paris, and there's already
