10:05 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, or the russia just has it so much more when it comes to, you know, tanks and 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 out numbered. 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'm in 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 of this region has been bombarded for months. the civilians, there have been living without electricity and other utilities for weeks even

10:09 am
others wonder how many more tragedies it would take to enforce stick to gun control in the u. s. t w correspondence stefan simons is in houston, texas word the n r a convention is taking place. and here's his assessment of former president donald trump's speech. at the event. there are no surprises there from the former president, president trump boating the same horny always did. as did governor about here, the governor of texas sane and blaming mental health issues and mental health problems are a mental health pandemic group of demick in the united states. for, for example, what happened a few days ago and you've all there, but many americans now is especially now after this incident won't change change, meaning not touching the constitutional 2nd amendment, but better restrictions more control. so this or what happened
10:10 am
a few days ago is not going to happen anymore, or is made much harder. the group of 7 leading industrial nations that 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, drives, 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, food scarcity, and fueling conflicts on displacement of climate change. it's populations who are already vulnerable from poverty in countries where governments often fail to provide basic resources. africa, 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,
10:11 am
and north america have each emitted over 8 times more greenhouse gases than africa . but globally, africa's people suffer the most from climate change. if we look at just one climate impact that of droughts, the number of droughts has grown dramatically in africa affecting at least a 170000000 people, kenya, somalia, and mauritania among the worst hit. the 10 most climate vulnerable countries in the world are all in africa. and these 10 countries are home to one 5th of africa's people. to make matters worse, climate change is hitting a population already reeling under the effects of poverty. food insecurity. conflict and poor health care. what were these issues mean people in africa are often less able to adapt to the impact of climate change than in other regions of
10:12 am
the world. then there's the issue of energy having reliable energy sources seen as key to africa's development. but just over half of africa's population has access to electricity much lower than elsewhere in the world. in the next decades africa's population is expected to double and so to will its demand for energy. renewables might not be able to meet this demand. and the blanket ban on funding new fossil fuel plants, as demanded by the global north, could leave many africans without electricity in the future. dimming the continent push to develop more. that's why influential africans are now calling for taylor made solutions for the continent. dw spoke to the british sudanese billionaire, mo, ever him who has been funding efforts to strengthen africans, voice in the global discussion around climate change. and he made the case to
10:13 am
d. w. why he thinks 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, russian guys f i've actually half of african gas is exported to europe and didn't have 6 handling b. many people without power and he was no longer all, you cannot, you cannot, you cannot use jazz here. if this is morally bankrupt. renewable is a main source of live twisty for 22 african african countries. no european or any other continent can compare with that. so we're doing our best, but renewable are not enough. we need to have a mix football now and the champions league final kicks off later today in paris.
