but if you look at the build out of what is required if you were to switch say for instance you go to ten percent or twenty five percent wind energy production in a country like the us you would have to build a massive amount of infrastructure in terms of transmissions and that is vastly expensive so this is a big challenge so why do you think that's a problem because i'm thinking a hundred years ago there was no infrastructure for extra city and had to be built and it was built can't that happen the same way now you can make it happen and that suddenly requires political will to to make it happen because somebody is going to foot the bill. as to green energy the young fortunate thing is typically the production of the energy is much further away than if you use fossil fuel if you fossil fuel you can build a castle gas powered powered fire power station or indeed an oil oil energy producing station close to the big cities just outside as it were so therefore the
7:01 pm
need for interest russia is much less whereas if you have green energy initiatives like solar wind or indeed hydro power it's simply is far away from where the energy is consumes you're going to have to build it up but that is the price of of green energy i'm afraid i'm. going to take a short break right now when we're back we'll continue discussing that some crazy tax stay with us. the idea of spending money to acquire region to acquire territory to acquire wealth is an oxymoron there is no more wealth to acquire the ecosystem is collapsing the
7:02 pm
economy is flooded with worthless feel paper and the species is migrating over to the digital sphere feasibly these networks and platforms people are uploading their minds into cyberspace and hope to be comfy morkel so every dollar spent on defense every dollar spent by the pentagon is a wasted dollar that's a nineteenth eighteenth seventeenth sixteenth century mindset it's completely antiquated and it's utterly worthless. you know world of big partisan lot and conspiracies it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that make the stream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door on the bats and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now for watching closely watching the
7:03 pm
hawks. show seemed wrong when old rules just don't hold. any new world view yet to shape out these days becomes to educate and engage with equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground.
7:04 pm
and we're back with. this and space tourists to be are when they're discussing future of green technologies welcome back to the show now there have been grain bubbles before let's say in the ninety's and then during the financial crisis and during obama's time as well there's nothing scary about a green by molson's that seems to always bounce back. there's something scary about bubbles in general in financial markets and of read another book about that called wall street without the ups and downs of financial markets and the sad reality is when you build up big bubbles like that and they bust somebody is going to pay for it and simply it ends up being main street as opposed to wall street who pays for it so there is a political aspect to this the good news is you can actually prevent some of these bubble the bad news is that we as human being tend to want to create them out of
7:05 pm
maybe out of right motivation but wrong implementation that's the challenge we face here but there has been green bubbles in the past they have not been as big as this one we're building right now because now there is a shooter amount of political will maybe outside the u.s. partly with the current administration to really make this thing happen just look what's happened to the electric comma in the mode what's going on that the moment people really generally want to change and that creates huge opportunity and huge challenges big subsidies is required and therefore we've got to be very careful about this mountain of subsidies we build up so that it doesn't suddenly burst and crash so climate change and all things green have become a cultural staple i mean think about it taking the subway not taking a plastic bag in a grocery store keeping your tires inflated those used to be mundane usual things and now there and by mental statements i think grain is becoming
7:06 pm
a fashionable thing to do it's a fashionable lifestyle well that drive the demand for green energy happens while. i think that's true certainly it's become more fashionable i think also i would even push a bit further saying the consumer has become more conscious about its consumers behavior so we all think a little bit more about saving a bit more water. maybe taking public transport if that's the easiest and best way to get that i think is more conscious consciousness about and therefore there is a drive amongst a lot of populations to do good to have a clean environment we've all suffered a bit from coughing we've been in a very polluted city and it's not very pleasant i mean go to certain big cities in china or even indeed hin london where we've recently put on a ten pound extra charge for old cars that pollutes mole so there's definitely this political drive and that's in turn is a reflection of increased consumer awareness which ultimately is
7:07 pm
a good thing because whatever the politicians do whatever we do through legislation ultimately it's down to human and consumer behavior so that is a very good thing that we're becoming more conscious about ylem asked really stepped the laws of economics will drive civilization towards sustainable energy inevitably do you believe doesn't that make long term green investment why. there's nothing better if you can put up in the economic incentives without without subsidies for entrepreneurs to get involved if an entrepreneur sees an opportunity where there is a decent return to be had and that return can be gained over time without subsidies a bet you that entrepreneurs around the world will roll up the sleeves and get on with it and that's exactly will be have seen in the space of solar energy in those places where solar doesn't need subsidies if it does make
7:08 pm
a decent return in its own right they'll get on with it and that's what we need to get to bring down the cost find the technologies that actually has a true chance of working in its own right on a commercially sustainable way within five to eight eight year timeframe that's what we need to get to because then life will start to take. its pressure will start to take a life in of its own you will see projects being produced and sopranos want to expand the businesses make more money which is a good thing if it drives the green energy revolution forward in addition to the consumer behavior that also puts extra demands for all products to be more green for transportation to be more green etc that is that becomes a competitive edge and a good branding her you know it's not only the cream tack that is building forward fossil fuels are refusing to get second in past as well fracking technologies has let the industry tap into so much natural gas in america they say it will last
7:09 pm
a century it's cheap less polluting than coal or oil how can you was actually compete with that. it is a challenge if you look at the cost per megawatt for renewable energy as a group to compete today with fossil fuel as a group the reality is that coal in particular the price of coal per make a watt the dollars per make it what is actually very cheap so you're going to have to in the short term impose certain duties old or certain extra taxes polluting tax and that's those things to level the playing field because otherwise you're absolutely right it is challenging to compete today however the good news is going forward within the reasonable time frame some of these technologies will be able to compete on their own right and that's the really good news but we're still going to need fossil fuel we want to the not for a long period to come fossil fuel still accounts for the vast vast majority of our energy production today so we still going to have to invest in that because it is
7:10 pm
part of life well you like it or not and that includes shale technology you've been able to go deeper into the oceans to to take more oil and gas off etc we are going to need it because you're not going to want to let you call stand there idle if your car drives on petrol that's just reality you want to go from a to b. and the electric bill a lot more of evolution to show for itself so once we ran out of oil and gas here will go look for resources in the sky that's what musk things at any rate what do you think is that far faster aiming that we're actually going to go to space for some asteroid goal or someday that. i would beg to differ on that point first of all we're not going to run out of oil and gas anytime soon there is plenty available on the earth plenty yes it's true we always say there is so in so many years thirty years left this that the other but the reality is it comes down to how
7:11 pm
much you want to pay for it for the extraction there is plenty available but it will cost you more to extract from the earth because now if you look at the big elephant deposits big deposits that typically further out in the sea the deeper the more costly to develop the required big of billions of investments but we are there they are so we can get it if you want to is just a much matter of how much you want to pay for it when it comes to resources from space mining asteroids so all the planets and that sort of things i think that's a fall off it streams dream for now it's just not economically viable yes there are some some good resources the moon for instance has a lot of helium three which is a very scarce resource on earth but it's just not economically viable to send a space ship up there do some drilling and then come back down again the cost of space transportation today even with space x. in the low cost providers is simply prohibitive to make that activity economically
7:12 pm
viable you're more likely to find the answer in going deep deep in the oceans to do under the sea mining underwater mining and that sort of things that's more likely to happen well anyways you're going to space maybe not to high nasser and gold but you're going you've signed up for three trips to space with different private companies and completely your space training as well i mean this will be the first public space tourism flight are you scared at all i mean when you're doing it with our eating with the russians at least you have the state guarantees of safety do you feel just as safe i don't know with virgin for instance. yes it's true with enormous space i have been preparing for some time to go to space and in fact after on some of my space training in russia trained style city together with you know a wonderful. been to bike annoying kazakhstan for
7:13 pm
a serious launches and flown make fighter jet so had a wonderful time in russia executing my space training as well as of done in america and to be honest i'm so excited i can't wait to go yes those risks but there's always risk when you when you do exciting things i'm an adventure i'm a pioneer i'm not afraid of pushing the boundaries and in two thousand and eight to set a world record by doing the first tandem skydive all mount everest so often things that in my view much worse or have high risk profile in the past can wait to go to space we'll follow me. if you take me maybe but i am last question for you dennis tito the first space tourist pay twenty million dollars for a straight face ten years later you're paying a quarter of a million dollars for your ticket using like space travel will be equal in two train ferry another twenty years. no i don't think so i think it was actually on
7:14 pm
the launch pad in baikonur when when dennis took off to assess i was very very excited that his behalf and and he's a true pioneer in that regard so it's fantastic to see that actually now civilians can can go it is even more exciting that the cost curve is coming down so much and that's exactly what private enterprise brings to the equation here before oh if we have nasa and the all the other national agencies around the world funding it they tend to be less economically efficient bring in private enterprise like space x. and you just lower the cost base by eighty percent or so that's that's really good news and that means that space will become more accessible more people get an opportunity to go into space and enjoy. this fantastic experience that is being an astronaut i mean who don't want to do it as a kid lots of kids would want to go today and this is truly expiring that we can allow kids to dream for real about the prospects of going into space and a lot of time fantastic thank you so much for this wonderful interview will wish
7:15 pm
you all the best with all your endeavors or talking to. and to me space stories her when there are about whether green technologies can provide answers to our future energy needs and that's it for this latest and latest edition of. next time. thank you. when the makers manufacture consensus and stick to the public wells. when the roman closest project themselves. with the financial
7:16 pm
merry go round to be the one percent told. to ignore middle of the room signals. the real news is really the work. of some full complement of. people as you know we've that. paid in. the trees. for the sincerest settle in the field but the other kids. all of a sudden a man just. simple be there to show you what. i
7:17 pm
said i will enter its beginning if they will not allow i'm. sure they will shoot you. i'll come on million million indeed i'm not i'm not begun to menominee been thought to be chubby don't bother you know now that i've got medical army because. the target. good politicians do something good. they put themselves on the line they get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. or somehow want to.
7:18 pm
have to try to be for us this is what before three in the morning can't be good i'm interested always in the waters about how. this should. exist says harlan kentucky. boyce's of the border industry bunny's. a co money city it was almost no coal mines left. the jobs are gone all the coal was said that there was a lot of to see these people the survivors of a world disappearing before their eyes. i remember thinking when i was younger that if anything ever happened to the coal mines here that it would become a ghost town but i never thought in
7:19 pm
a million years i would see that and it's happening it's happened. to. trump's imitation to putin to visit the white house is postponed food and turns around inviting trump to moscow this trump out of a grand plan regarding russia or is he merely chibi a campaign promise this and much much more suspicious of crosstalk. i. i i. i. i.
7:20 pm
briggs it remains as divisive as ever with reports now stating that the u.k. army is prepared to fly in food medicine in case of a no deal with the e.u. some time it's fear mongering others say the u.k. is effectively setting itself on fire. a shocking postwar practice in canada was exposed by the authorities for thousands of single women to give up their babies we hear from one of the victims there was no conversation about with me about how i got pregnant all they cared about was the fact that i went. pregnant and that i had a baby that they can't. take. and
7:21 pm
third best in the usa that the trunk presidencies created a new exile to disorder democrats remain convinced that russia tampered with voting machines something even the cia now rejects. very good evening to you watching r.t. international. a british m.p. has tweeted that in response to reports that the u.k. army will fly in food medicine of fuel should the country crash out of the e.u. without a trade deal or the military since said that it's not received any such formal instructions the news has created panic with the country deeply divided over briggs it. has more. with this works a deadline fast approaching it seems the uncertainty about what exactly is going to be achieved come march next year has been peaking at the specially in light of the
7:22 pm
ports that have been circulating here in the british press over the last couple of days talking about how the british army could be involved if there is a new deal brax it in terms of helping provide supplies such as few food and medicine and certainly this is something that would usually be associated with an emergency and of course we have since we have been very swift to these reports some saying they're shocked and others refusing to be manipulated with what they call scare tactics god help us this is not coming from remain as this is not project fear pro bricks of ministers a drawing a blueprint for the army to deliver food fuel and medicine if we leave you with no deal we have a duty to prevent the self-immolation the plan of scaring the crap out of people with no deal horror stories in order to make a free trade agreement which will tank the economy look like a good deal is beginning to work well in reaction to all of this we have seen
7:23 pm
british prime minister theresa made was always said no deal is better than a bad deal basically try to calm down the public when it comes to all of this often being worried about preparations that we're making i would say that people should take reassurance and comfort from the fact that the government is saying we're in a negotiation we're working for a good deal i believe we can get a good deal but actually it's right that we say because we don't know what the what the outcome is going to be we think it's going to be a good one we're working for a good one but let's prepare for every eventuality while a threesome a there is obviously trying to convince the public that everything is going to be all right we do know that downing street have also said they've decided to stop drip feeding information in the time to come about some of the details about contingency plans. piece of a new deal bracket and of course we've also said that there are no. the british army in such situations following those reports that have stirred up quite
7:24 pm
a bit of trouble however with all of that said it seems the public is not quite sure that the government knows exactly what it is they're doing in this situation seems a bit shambo makes me kind of you know reactions to everything. or anyone in london or anywhere for that matter has really across from it really is do you think officials that are in charge of this process have done a good job so far figuring out what's going to happen and negotiating with the e.u. you know what i mean there's been no real negotiation and it's been quite a selfish negotiation just one party even in parliament here you know going to germany france getting a real understanding of how this will affect the country itself those are some opinions of the people we talked to here in london earlier today but we also know that there's been a latest sky did a poll that was released that said that only ten pounds of the people surveyed
7:25 pm
believe that the government was doing a good job when it comes to brits and as many as seventy eight percent thought the complete opposite. the canadian government disturbing practice dating back to just after the second world war when women were forced to give up their babies which was then handed over to married couples some new mothers were even lied to and told that the children had been stillborn we spoke to one of the victims of the decades long practice that was meant to promote traditional families. they found out i was pregnant they mark my records b.f.a. baby for adoption. i was a fifteen year old girl pregnant i was pregnant from a sexual assault. and. there was no real conversation with me about how i got pregnant all they cared about was the fact that i was. pregnant and
7:26 pm
that i had a baby that they could. take. a healthy born haired blue eyed beautiful baby. you will forget the child go home get married and have other children or if not get a puppy to. that is what i was told get up puppy. it was a very abusive and there. we were isolated from our life i was isolated from my family as my community my sisters and my parents i was completely left alone.
7:27 pm
my parents were not canadian citizens they're there from europe and my parents believed that they would get deported if they did it and followed. what the government wanted at maternity homes mothers were routinely denied their right to see older feed their babies there are still some mothers who do not know where their day delivers a boy or girl being told well it's none of your business to hold my daughter i actually had to ask three times and i. at first i said it quietly and then they started a little louder and then the last time that i asked i had to yell and i had to yell bring me my baby now. and then the nurse stopped looked at the doctor for permission and i was quite surprised that the nurse would have to ask for permission for me to hold my own daughter since i'm her legal guardian and my daughter in my arms and.
7:28 pm
and then they really went. black i started to get i started to pass out and then they took her away from me. i met my daughter she she actually found me so she phoned me. and she said. you don't know who i am and as soon as she said that i knew who she was. we talked on the phone for about six months getting to know each other getting from earlier with each other building some trusts she needed to feel safe because our children were told that there was something wrong with us they were towards an alternate story that we were drug addicts prostitutes.
7:29 pm
millions. voted in the first presidential election since long time leader robert mugabe was ousted so to turn it has been the first time in almost four decades that the gobies name has not been on the ballot votes raising hopes spoke at home and abroad even as looks at how this could mark a rebirth for the troubled african nation. election in zimbabwe is a huge milestone for what's been a very troubled country with an even more troubling financial crisis and here is why is the first time since one thousand nine hundred eighty the name of robert mugabe isn't featured on the ballots he was held at the country for almost fourteen years and it seemed nothing good price in the way mccartney's departure from his presidential throne was as quick as it was unexpected the big to unfold it all for
7:30 pm
a fight the power between mugabe's own wife and his right hand man the first lady also known as gucci grace and the voice present nicknamed as the crocodile each accuse the other of things and death threats and it seemed grace had won her way with her ninety three year old husband sacked the vice president personally the army stepped in taking control of the capital just as the parliament was moving to impeach robert mugabe to quit to now a smooth transfer of power and the crocodile finally got his seat into running the country. the election is seen as a clash between two main candidates. man and god is a member of the ruling party and being combatant president appointed after my garbage was ousted although and surprisingly hasn't been given the backing of a gobby claims that he grabbed power from an illegally his closest rival is nelson
