7:04 pm
there can be no trust that they, i, anyhow, interested in peace. and he said basically as a precondition to p stokes, he would see withdrawal of the russian forces from ukrainian territory. so that's probably more of a hope that to add to on has or inhibition that and on has then a realistic possibility. and russia, of course, was not at these talks, so what can they achieve without that, the russians being that what the peace process doesn't start with putting everybody at one table and then see what everybody has to say. there's of course, some chuckling, going back and forth in the beginning, edwin has said that he would visit putin next and talk to put in about the outcome of this meeting but off. but as i said, there is no prospect for full piece talks right now. it's more about solving the problem about around that up or easier, speeding up the grade shipments and this mission, this investigative mission to america, rather than

7:07 pm
ecosystem. many islands i now connected to the shore, cutting off various waterways. fish have been robbed of the space they need to survive and reduced to living and pawns. scientists say the current low water level is something of a wider wake up call. it charged underneath, under the low water level this year is quite exceptional. it's due to a major deficit and rainfall that began last winter g. it's led to many small tributaries of the lower to dry up on jessie roland dickory, more with france currently facing severe droughts and several regions. interracial rain and flooding in others. many experts are calling for a rethink when it comes to the use of essential natural resources. as monkey magic it on climate change is underway, and it's undeniable, and it must encourage us to reflect on our rules for sharing water resources. we

7:09 pm
not the only ones. it's a similar story all across europe. even in typically went to places like england. find to say this is climate change in action is a high probability. we haven't exceptional drought now because of the, the effect we have had a good climate change that we have. trees are responding to that drought by dropping leaps because without a squire or 2, they comfort a single fresh. i'm so so the leaves are useless. it's an emergency response to protect themselves against against the arbitration. the consequences with julie loosely as an ecologist, living in berlin several years ago, she noticed the trees looking sick and decided to help them. i realized how much they needed water, how dry the summer was. and i know it's supposed to be raining way more, usually,
7:10 pm
which is it's nice to have a sunny weather for the murder. but for the trees and the environment, it can be very hard for them to sustain this type of weather. over the years. she uses an open source app that maps out nearly all the trees in the city, some 800000 of them. it gives volunteers an overview of what trees have been watered and how much they still need. so just looking at this is incredibly detailed, i guess both and make his and the uses of this app. really appreciate how important trees are for us. yes, i think we're all realizing how important they are. they provide shadow to help cooling down the streets and also for pumping out oxygen deoxygenated. we're breathing. they also help absorbed the carbon dioxide and the carbon dioxide, of course, being one of the greenhouse gases that contributes to global warming. yes, yes. i think there are many engaged citizens in berlin,
7:11 pm
but unfortunately no where near enough the watering the trees, the authorities also don't have the capacity even during mile to summers. that ins department for the environment is looking at ways to support trees and the longer term they include making better use of rain water, planting more climate, resilient species, and working to boost public awareness of just how important trees are for our existence. so that more people start to look after them a forest fires and algeria have killed at least 30 people that are injured. and many more. hundreds of people have been moved to safety and dozens taken to hospital with breathing difficulties . helicopters are being used to put out the fires as officials warm, but hot winds could spread the flames. hello, i to afghanistan. wear a bombing at a mask in the capital. kabul has killed at least $21.00 people, including a prominent cleric, dozens more wounded, and there's been no claim of responsibility. the so called islamic state has
