2:30 am
still a privilege hominy is one of the main causes. some young children walk in mind troughs . instead of going to class others can attend classes only after they finish working with millions of children, all over the world can't go to school. we ask why. and because education makes the world more, just make up your own mind. d. w. made for mines. ah, ah, welcome to global 3000 global. well, this distributed hugely unequally. we meet someone who's nonetheless managed to lead quite literally to
2:31 am
a better life. luxury bunkers in the u. s. the business of fia is booming and why the super rich are doing poorly when it comes to the climate ever more money ever more possessions. nastier global private assets hit a new record level of $473.00 trillion us dollars. despite all of the current crises, values have continued to increase than out more than 10 percent compared to last year. the super rich club has around $69000.00 members, all of whom have assets of more than a $100000000.00. most of them live in the us. china comes in 2nd, followed by germany inside place. ah,
2:32 am
this comparatively tiny group of super wealthy individuals owns 15 percent of all global wealth. not only is this disproportionate but so is that environmental footprints welcome to the polluted lives of the filthy rich. this is a world of helicopters, jets, mansions, and rockets. cutting these peoples emissions is the easiest wind for the climate. it comes at 0 cost to anyone except them and well, they can afford it. so just how dirty are the world's richest people? and how do we clean them up? answering the 1st question is tricky. because nobody is forced to report their own emissions. scientists take estimates of the carbon pollution from an activity or product and combine them with data about how often you do or buy it. that's hard enough to get right for yourself. when it comes to billionaires,
2:33 am
this is even harder because you don't have that much information about them. researcher batteries borrows, worked out the carbon footprints of 20 billionaires in 2018. we had to work with what we had. we had to work with billionaire school whose lifestyle is a glamorize, who often appear in the media, who show and show off their yards, their private chairs. that meant they ignored some of the richest people in asia, but in europe and the us, they found plenty of material to keep them busy. take roman abramoff, which the russian oligarchy steal magnet and former football club owner. his 162 meter long yacht has 2 hello pads and kinda unnecessarily for a boat to swimming pools. powering this single ship with diesel makes up the bulk of his colossal carbon footprint. how about microsoft founder bill gates?
2:34 am
he's a billionaire who at least gets the problem avoiding a climate disaster. so we need green cement, green steel to bring the emissions from all those areas down to 0. gates has written an entire book about avoiding a climate disaster. and his credit, he doesn't own a mega yacht, but bill gates flew around the world with his private yet so much that in 2018. the emissions from his transport were still the same as around 4000 indians or 500 americans. this millionaires, they are aware of the social capital of, of kenny about the environment of buds. i don't see them doing anything about it, at least in their, in their personal behavior. it's not just celebrities who are the problem. inequality is falling between countries, but growing within them and in cities around the world, the widening gap between the rich and the rest also applies to emissions. let's
2:35 am
look at the top one percent of global earners. that somebody earning a yearly salary of about $109000.00. these people live in cities from miami to mom, buy and they're responsible for one 5th of the growth in carbon pollution in the last 30 years. the shock one percent you see c t s and her mom, she's about 50 percent. oh humanity. that's it. nisha nazareth from the stock home environment institute. things like this channel. i had yes. in yontsa. but a big problem is you know, you really suck. are eager influences to campaign donations and influence in general, unless as yes, there are 2 ways this takes place. the 1st is full scale lobbying. rich people have poured money into preserving the status quo, which is working out pretty well for them. and society glamorous is the rich from jeff bezos blasting into space to kim kardashian. holidays were obsessed with their
2:36 am
opulent lifestyles and often want them for ourselves. so how can we clean them up? the 1st answer is the most obvious. don't let the super rich get so rich and the 1st place. the problems of capitalism are beyond the scope of this video. but even hardcore ideologues admit the ultra rich, often avoid taxes and exploit loopholes in the system to grow even richer. by raising taxes, closing legal loopholes and cracking down on tax havens policy makers can make it more costly for the wealthy to pollute. and in doing so, they'd raise money to invest in clean energy infrastructure. but bear in mind it's not just the ultra rich who emit way too much. the best example of this is flying. if you've set foot on a plane this year, you belong to the elite 2 to 4 percent of the population that flies in a given year. and if you fly more than once a year,
2:37 am
your carbon footprint is pretty much guaranteed to be incompatible with doing your fair share for a stable climate. one way to solve this is a carbon tax raise the cost of flying to reflect the damage it does to the planet. and a lot more people will holiday closer to home. sounds simple, but it also makes flying the thing that's already only accessible to a small group of people, even more elite. you would have to set a blanket carbon tax extremely high to deter the frequent flyers and business travelers. that same added cost would be felt much more by a middle class family. well, few specifically the one percent will always buy their way out of common texas, just because the care this is stefan gosling, a sustainability researcher, who says we should focus on the super frequent flyers people who for instance, take more than 12 flights a year. it moved there to some, to some of the worst population of this little group will account for more than
2:38 am
half off all the vision emissions that the system is causing a year. one way to address this is to increase the cost of flying for every extra flight you take. this is known as a frequent flyer levy. it will cut demand for air travel without pushing the activity further into the hands of the very richest. that sounds like an idea everybody could get behind bright. in reality, we see a surprising support off of the lifestyle of her very wealthy. but it would be a mistake to focus solely on what rich people buy. because people who are wealthy contribute the most to causing climate change there. unfortunately, the also in the most ideal position to help us mitigate climate change. this is christy on medicine, a scientist and lead author of a study on what the richest one percent can do to stop climate change in the paper with sketch 5 different roles. the 1st one is what they do as
2:39 am
a consumer. re broaden not tools to consider. what can i do as investors? because the more wealth and income you have, the more money you can invest into companies linked to fossil fuel or if renewable energy reduction. because rich people have more influence within organizations. they can also lobby for change where they work. cleaning up the lifestyles of the rich is a clear cut wind for the climate. but for the most part, the rich aren't going to just de carbonized themselves. policies that redistribute their wealth need to gain societal acceptance policies. the target, their emissions need to avoid a backlash from people who look up to their lifestyles. recognizing that the wealthy have more power to stop climate change is the 1st step to tackling their outside pollution. natural disasters. pandemic, terrorism war, many people worldwide have started preparing themselves for such scenarios. they stocking up on provisions and weapons, and even building private bunkers,
2:40 am
profits a soaring for purchases of such equipment as cash to be made from people's fear. their teeth bared and the welding torch is in action at this facility in dallas, texas millions are being made from selling fear, or ron hubbard builds bunkers for private individuals. and they're in demand like never before. a glimpse into doomsday real estate. you'll notice the framework, the walls, the beams, and the ceiling. it's all built to the standard of a brand new house. there's nothing about it that says a dust roll or military. these are luxury bomb shelters for the world's late. since the pandemic and russia's invasion of ukraine hubbard has more money than he knows what to do with. he spends a lot on his favorite toys as he calls them several $100000.00 worth of guns.
2:41 am
in ron hubbard's business safety concerns make the cash registers ring even the fact that his idle had to leave the white house benefits his bottom line. donald trump is bad for beds. this, when it comes to bunkers and guns. now when trumpet embeds as gun cells go down, bunker cells go down because the people who buy bunkers are conservative, they feel safe. so they don't buy bunkers. when a democrat is in office, we don't feel safe and we, they buy bunkers. so biden is good, great for business. the war in europe is also great for bunker sales, where others see death and suffering. hubbard sees a business opportunity. this video shows him in ukraine 2 months ago. he's thinking of opening a factory here to maybe sell his bunker, justine ukrainians too. it could be a booming market and here you got this one. i hope that when the floor in this will
2:42 am
become a big tourist, off of the rest of europe. everybody will come here to see all these blood that take that will be a good thumbnail right there and the fear of war and disaster is now so great that some americans are spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on shelters. hubbards clients arrive in ferrari's or bentley's. like here. bill sinclair is the head of a big american insurance company. are you doing? a few weeks after the war and ukraine began, st. clair ordered his $500000.00 luxury bunker. a lot of people have written it off, is it, it's not going to be a part of the side of the millennials, a generation xers, the people that have never seen or been a part of a war because we haven't had a war. you know, since the sixty's and i think this brings it. ready full circle and let them know
2:43 am
that the, the world we live in is not a 100 percent stable environment. we're but he gets long. this house is like a fortress. it's owned by thomas, janet. check a doctor who's lived here for 11 years. he built most of the place himself including the bunker that lies beneath it. all that's missing. why are the interior fillings that i have had the house to build 1st and then the wife, one of the pool patio finished for after the house. so this was kind of last resort . janet jack hopes to put the finishing touches on next year. like many of his compatriots, he's lost faith in government institutions. he no longer trusts them to protect his wife and children in case of an emergency. new father and husband, couple of my job, 35 for the family and right for their safety and living here. the storm tornadoes
2:44 am
just having a storm shelter was born and having storm shelter. it had that underground . the deep enough, then it crossed the protection of radiation. those who can't afford to buy a custom made shelter, can rent one in south dakota. dante chino, purchased 575 former military bunkers, which served as ordinance depos during world war 2. today he leases them to private individuals $45000.00 for a 99 year term. what we offer is very much a i think it's a solution to fear. you know, it may be the initial um, reason why people began looking because they are afraid of what may happen. people really aren't so afraid anymore when they know that they have a bunker for themselves. his firm vivas has least most of its bunkers already. some
2:45 am
people only plan to use them in an emergency, but others live here at 40 glue all year round. maybe that's because here they feel safe from the disaster shown in the company's videos. these mixed the fear of real dangers with pseudo religious apocalyptic fantasies. but they seem to be effective in attracting clients. the bunkers themselves are 2nd world war and cold war era relics. the renewed interest in them shows many fear, a new era of conflict across the u. s. businesses profit from this angst. i don't feel that there's an ethical issue in it because i have people that come up to me on a pretty much daily if not weekly basis. who thank me for making this a reality, bedroom and dante ver, chino does his best to make them comfortable here. he's a trained architect who also finishes the shelters,
2:46 am
interiors. they're very much democratized and industry that may have never seen that level of accessibility before. and so now we've opened this whole market up to basically you know, all, all types of people and something that now, you know, middle class families can really afford nearly a 3rd of us adults, polls believe and apocalyptic disaster will occur in their life time. so businesses are helping them devise survival plans, which would previously had been considered absurd to feel safe. again, more and more americans are sinking their cash into reinforced concrete shelters. and going underground o planet is home to around 2400000000 children and young people. many a 3rd of the global population, the kinds of stuff they get in life varies greatly around 260000000 children don't
2:47 am
go to school and millions even live on the street. but given the right opportunities, everything can change. it looks effortless. but the tricks that ja cooper's closin and his colleagues are doing take a lot of practice and usually it doesn't work right away with one of the club did you all was in one to get injured if it's the look of the vehicle to go back to work because the 1st thing there's gonna be in your mind is that fall is going to happen again. or that club is gonna hit me again. normally if i for like a stand up and say yes, let's go again. one more time. and i always the 2nd time when they lead this attitude has brought your cooper's class in
2:48 am
a long way. he's one of zip that circus is top performers. the academy in cape towns, woodstock district, offers free training to young people who want to go on stage funded in part by donations and performances. brent pennsburg and his wife lawrence founded zip zap in 1995, both our former circus artists. we believe that any kid and matter what the background, if they've given the opportunity in life and they are passionate about what they, they do and any child can make it. and a lot of kids who have talent and skills, often left beyond and zip said, you know, we kind of provide that platform to give children that maybe don't have as much as others, the platform to do something with their life. yet cooper clausen, whom everyone here course trompe was one of those kids he and stage partner jason
2:49 am
barnhart, have been teaching and performing at zip sap since graduating there. the most important things they want to convey to their students, our passion, discipline, and teamwork. zip that brings people from all kinds of backgrounds together. after the lesson, yahoo was closin and jason bon out, have to practice, practice, practice. this demanding juggling number is part of the current state program. after a break, due to the pandemic, the troop can finally perform in front of a live audience. again for yahoo was closin. the live performance is create a very special bond between the audience and the artists. every time when i'm on stage, i make people feel how i feel as as express the way i feel at that moment. so if
2:50 am
i feel lots of love, i make people feel love. that's why audience, they always seem to screen. or they would stand up in their land would they have a lot of energy after performing an overdose of euphoria and endorphins. ja cooper's closin has already been able to share this experience with fans all over the world. the zip sap circus has already taken him from the small south african town of powell to numerous countries. he's performed in front of tennis stars, roger federer, and andy murray. and even at the white house during barrack obama's term, i tell ya, cooper's closin has come a long way. but to get this far, he had to overcome many obstacles. before he came to zip zap through
2:51 am
a youth outreach program and 2011, yahoo was carson lived on the streets and in this home for young men from the streets to the stages of the world. how did you do it? i wanted more for myself. i didn't that didn't think wolf going back to the rags. what dang sellers them and oh i love that. ah, that didn't come close to my head. and some of them gave me a taste that gave me a bite of the apple. and i told myself, i won, i won more of this apple. and today how got so much more of that apple yet cooper's class ins day is not over yet. next stop the zip zap dome and downtown cape town, a venue for performances and for afternoon training sessions. he coaches young sappers here several times a week. ya. cooper's closin made it with
2:52 am
a clear goal in mind. but he knows you can't do it on your own. the most important thing, open yourself to other people, openness and mutual support. a message that seems to be more important to day than ever before. literacy is the key to education and success. and of course that includes reading books according to unesco every year, around $1800000.00 books are published. that's almost 5000 every day. unlike other sectors, the book trade, whether that corona virus pandemic, well including in columbia, in the middle of the locked down and locked away in her apartment, 22 year old gabriella potter got serious about reading books. she even wrote notes
2:53 am
in the margins and underlined her favorite passages and those made bainbridge o'clock away. you know, in 2020 i think i read about 40 books. i see in and wrote me 202021. i read 60 and of those made ringtail journals. $35.00 according they, and so far this year i've read $48.00. what? so linda gabriella para loves numbers. she studies mathematics. but during the pandemic, she developed a passion for fantasy literature. they're not on the shelves. she puts them in plastic bags to keep them dry. they're all books from independent publishers. there are more than 70 such publishers in columbia that were not widely known, but during the lockdown they made record sales. publisher it guy blanco says it has to do with their flexibility and he says he could. okay. i'll if that
2:54 am
a law we're actually always struggling. lilian can. he says we have to always try to reach our readers in different ways. right. those did you get a liquid them when the completely unexpected happened us in the world? why pandemic and we were prepared and valuable coma thought that main thing is, but that made our work easier in a funding mcgloid. it's through these publishers that readers have discovered the new voices of colombian literature. but during locked down, customers weren't able to browse in bookstores. social networks became crucial for distribution. notice feliciano movie in it, that worked really well, but a much it saved many inc and another as elizabeth can. and they had direct contact to their readers. was by posting on instagram, facebook and even twitter all narr, unless you direct the cause. that's how the books were sold just yes, it is a transaction of commerce, yet. bookstores were the well functioning online shop did brisk business
2:55 am
on their websites. customers communicate with each other, sharing recommendations as well as critiques, as yourself and interpret okeydoke annual matthew. now it was surprising, look among the bookstores in the country as a, as well as on a global scale that eternally because he no one expected it. alice bent us, said will not one of us will though our doors were closed, our sales went up. what am we good with the support of social networks that way? so the only thing i will tell you all the books in this bookstore originate from this kind of publisher on offer are primarily political books about critical thinking and social movements. gabriella para started reading when she was a child. her favorite book is gargoyle by andrew davidson for her books, arnold, trinity to the internet. yeah, i'm on the races. alice, i'm in there. i've noticed how addictive social media can be and the tiny to distance myself from a jesse come what that means. element bell, fuck
2:56 am
a love afloat, but it really helps to have a book in my hand to stop me reaching for my fine. go ahead on during that that i don't know, i know it's cliche, but it really does help push it better. see agile out and one of them. and that's why she needs new books all the time. she wants to buy more, if only to support independent publishers and that sold from us at global 3000 dis, wait, do send us your feedback, global 3000 at d, w dot com and visit us on facebook to dw global ideas. see you next time. take care ah, with
