5:39 pm
seriously i countries when we knew that it is globally. and joining in to macs to get some sort of result. well i had seen. yes so many interests and these interests must be balanced but county there is still the case you that that is not much knowledge on one hand and the lesson knowledge on the orbit of the hand and say o ed the sky it's taking measures these days. they should be in the tba the mochi was also on the link between. i'm in a trauma g and izzy is an incentive damage and to implications for social implications. they will think you very much for the analysis of the soul voice. negotiate is that the war so climate conference will certainly face a number of stumbling blocks including calls for money to help poor countries convert to cleaner energy sources but you know experts say that that would

5:42 pm
one can say that poland is an interesting choice for hosting this year's climate conference. considering the country will also host an international coal conference just a few days later and about ninety percent of coal and electricity comes from coal and it's the most polluting fossil fuels the alternatives considered by for some however are that greener either the rulings of the sound of the ants are a relic from an earlier foray into nuclear power. an hour's drive from the dining hall and began building its first atomic plant here in the early nineteen eighties then came the chernobyl disaster. and four years later locals voted overwhelmingly to kill based on opiates project in a referendum. for a long time after that there was little talk of nuclear power in poland. ninety percent of its energy comes from coal fired stations. warsaw is now rethinking nuclear power much to the anger of
5:43 pm
environmentalist. for now i'm gulping gone and has a number the double capacity for a new bowls and an unbelievable potential for saving energy but that's not being exploited. instead we see an email to my next project. we should look into the future i'm. but more such plans for the future are of a different sort. the government wants to see two brand new nuclear power plants here in ten years' time. right on the baltic coast but there's plenty of cool water the generating capacity is six thousand megawatts that the proposed site is right next to me to consider decide to return to atomic energy poland to take on alternative energy includes steel gas. not far from certain opiates energy company said drilling test wells for gas and oil the suspect europe's biggest steel gas deposits are trapped here. deep below the surface. the government in warsaw on energy
