still but i don't think that the local law enforcement system is to stand there clearly racist i understand that distrust however of the african-american community given the history in this country because i think we have to recognize that for most of our history our institutions were explicitly racist protest marches are starting in new york as well christian salumi is there. yeah demonstrators continue to come out in force we've seen all day thousands taking to the streets like what we're seeing behind me here would happen here in manhattan it's happening in brooklyn and rallies in parks all over the city. you notice behind me some of the stores are still boarded up from what happened a few nights ago some looting the last few nights have been very peaceful and we've seen some victories for the demonstrators as well with. the mare and the governor announcing steps towards police reform that they are valid to take in the wake of
this outpouring of support i should also point out that as we've been going through the city streets people have been cheering honking their horns. winding up taking pictures and showing support for what's going on here and clearly these local leaders are hearing the call for reforms we've had the mayor roll back that curfew that was in place that's a major concession to the demonstrators who are staying out past it anyway he's also talked about. taking money from the police department putting it into social programs again something that the demonstrators have been calling for doing so lots of positivity lots of energy on the streets as the city moves into what is supposed to be its day one phase one reopening from the coronavirus technically the city is still under so-called lockdown not supposed to be lifted starting tomorrow there is some concern that corona virus. infections making may start rising again as
a result of all of the people out in crowds and so on they're increasing testing in manhattan to address that but as you can see right now demonstrators are showing no signs of stopping they're vowing to keep going until they get the changes they want the mayor of minneapolis where george floyd was killed has been booed by a crowd of protesters and told to go home. pastors were angry after jacob frey refused to withdraw financial support from the city's police department in the wake of floyd's death frey told the crowd he favors reforms instead it's anti racism rallies are also spreading across europe in the u.k. city of bristol protesters tore down a statue of a 17th century slave trader and threw it into a river thousands demonstrated outside the u.s. embassy in london as well. protests are demonstrating against president jay you're

it is a goal of perfect traditional to something to make you see you could go so soon to implement fall so much wrong that the minute you look long i can still take what you did on my list only press if rising northwards across the u.k. london 39 degrees breaking the july record well you have to got a lot in the night and i'd rather you rather got in about that we're going to kill all the folks here who called an old dog to meet a woman he called to tell you. don't smoke some believe you're sure to do me don't i don't know specifically no i'm going to shoot. some a $29.00 team in europe illustrated the urgency of the climate crisis which claimed its 1st victim. water. the demand is going straight up and the supply is going
straight down i mean it is dark it's stark. i mean do you really not granting or not yet the community on the money does you know money is going in and then i'm going from this nearly 2 thirds of them are affected by this to fall most of us in their homes destroyed while all this my due to the climate on the record breaking. today 70 percent of the earth's pure water is used to a human consumption. it has become the most coveted resource on the planet. we. try not doing it i think that because water. and see how you go. you won't be
wearing any clothes you won't be using a mobile phone you might be driving in a car might be living in a house you might be having breakfast might be having less be having dinner. watery is in everything that we do you know. to save humanity wall street wants to start a revolution. make water profitable and create water markets just like oil markets . water falls from the sky therefore should be free whenever i hear that i always say diamonds are current nature and they're not afraid. it's a financial product like any other financial product montes change you'd be a lot of the aussie on the way around i don't want to my late father or i can only $5.00 like a little modern guy who just at the beginning of 2 some. water financial revolution
. the blue gold rush has begun to anyone stop. the human right to water means that it's not a charity it's an issue of justice. this is the issue of our time this is the crisis of our time. with financial pressure on human mobilisation rising the battle over water has already begun. who will come out on top the planet the people the markets. london the financial companies of europe. here is where the relationship between water and finance 1st began 30 years ago.
at the time it was simply a question of commending the virtues of privatisation at the time it was margaret thatcher prime minister of the time who championed the cause which i believe are certainly on now not hard times more time in the benefit of the illuminati tonight not. that out of time highs nation i believe we'll go to lisa says really indeed. what happened was the entire system the entire physical system as well as the concession was sold to the private companies. every drop of water in the ploy this is private commodity.
one of the 1st think some of the killed at least it was to stop the single would spoil the people he had paid the bills. the number of people who've had their water cut off for failing to pay their bills has almost tripled in a year. one company for example disconnected 11000 customers and this was the company was concerned. they could stay disconnected if they didn't pay their bills they didn't get any more so. they always come back now to talk about. how far do you have to come before the child's. life you think i have to make this journey that they just come down to. us. i mean you could have drank i'm going to just think.
we didn't even have to care for this cheering him or tongue. i said myself it's the scar. from the market perspective but doesn't the market can careless if people died of cholera really that's not a joke their job is making money and leave them not very well. finally 10 years later a law is passed that prohibits companies from cutting off the water supply to those who haven't paid their bills. but this is not enough to turn the finances on the contrary. in the early 2000 new generation of traders and to the world. namely private equity funds for vulture funds. they are hungry and
completely unaccountable. they may be from which have a 10 year life and they therefore they need to get their returns over that decade that they will be vienna's and then they need to find a new way. say you have a lot of international investors people who may never have been to a water plant in yorkshire top of baby. never been to yorkshire before this is a wonderful business and truly sick links you don't need to do anything about water and you don't need to care anything about. the new owners arrived from canada hong kong i'm a lazy. 'd in london thames water distribution authority that covers 20 percent of the country is booked by the australian based mcquarrie finals.
i was aware of mccoury i mean they were quite a famous institution in australia where they've been known as something i think they were called the millionaires factory because so many people who worked at mccoury became very rich as a result of the bonuses that they and. but cory were one of the 1st private equity companies to save these are good places to be one of the simple reasons for that is if you observe there is and is going to be population growth. if there's population growth there's going to be more water dr. david hall is the man who revealed this war to scam. in 2017 he published a study in which he detailed 30 years of abusive practices. rising buildings
soaring dividends to shareholders and tax evasion. a caricature of financial companies. we ended up polluting a belt. 2.5000000000 pills. was being taken else of the system but private capital now a 1000000 reason for that was that the dividends though playing themselves were very very regular so these companies were perfect cash machines they still are they still.
everybody believes correctly that we are being swindled by the world is. what david hall study then did was it said is this really how you think that essential services should be bloated i think is the best way by financial interests so aggressive. the australia based mcquarrie finals was the thames route just overtake us. when it sold its function to the company march 22nd 2. acquiring uses and had just over $13000000000.00 of debt somebody at that point will have to repay all those boring well there's only one source of money in the whole water industry and that is the customer and when the customer has to repay those borrowings that will affect the
charges they have to pay and of course the owners will never return the dividends they've taken out those have just gone. i think they take a view that this is. a fictive in the sky. the funny thing is that you case experience with privatization is no one else in the developed world has done it it's a one off and sometimes you have to ask yourself why is. today over 80 percent of britons would like to go back to a time when water was a common public and essentially free resource. but this concept is slipping away.
rains sweltered through another 24 hours of extreme haze i've been out it barely dipped below 30 degrees in many parts of the state with temperatures soaring into the need to hide the reasons for that was. probably not the right of the catastrophic not to run to the right of the storm it remains dreamily hot would evaporate and i would come back and think things are going to. run. australia on the frontline of climate change. here drought is a part of everyday life. in this parched country australians are getting closer and
closer to tomorrow's world. a world where water is a scarce and expensive resource. there is a dairy farmer who lives in new south wales one of the driest regions in the country. for many months now his reserves have been empty. the only solution for feeding his animal is to buy extra water from the private market. although you know if. you go. to die to run just for my kale and it cost me close to half a $1000000.00 for 12 months of oil $500000.00 can you afford that it would put
a deal this trying on us if we if we did it a great deal a strong. right . but we now if i'm in the last 3 months it's already spent $1000000.00 on water oh. well. a storm could come straight tomorrow up at all and. so it's they've spent the money but still a game of fun with it whether it's going to work on. which basically the chaos alarm goes we've told the board to grow crops for the can . we can't afford a real lot of grinding out there getting very little or not a grind at all at the moment. side they're producing. 50 percent less than what they should be but he's told me.
it has become like. it is bought and sold with a single click thanks to mobile phone and an application connected to the market available 24 hours a day. its price changes day depending on supply and demand. it's there aka touching a compatible fate in it but i can easily. not less of that money. once the transaction is approved there are occasion channel valves open automatically and poor out millions of liters to customers those who can pay.
people are just taking water from us and it's a law and exciting effort from a 5 or. why we doing it the next year the reviews of full and the we don't have to go back on to that i've been mocked at the border again will it happen. you must apply russian roulette. to combat water shortages the australian government has chosen to rush. each year it allocates a quota to the major water consumes fountains industrialists and cities. this is calculated based on activity existing reserves and weather forecasts. along with this new law called the water act water markets have been created where
anyone can come and purchase additional rights or sell some of that. is going to give you a call as the market is changing a bit over the last couple way certainly was that i don't judge all of my money on the same trading really happening around 475 to 495 dollars i really don't mind reminding from the waterfront thanks kate look forward to hearing from you in just 10 years the water business has become the new el dorados the turnover of 2000000000 dollars a year morning yeah i am not a top 1st thing. i want to find is the world's leading water stock exchange was because they work with the mega liter a unit of measurement equipment to 1000000 liters. some are here called me the water market parnia. i'd like to say that
i'm a pioneer in the world. i must always have got nowhere to go since i actually transferred these i only got i think yeah yeah it's 6 weeks. so i will reset that a guy and then imagine the negligence that we secured that so many transferred $250.00 eggs plus the side prices to die around the $500.00. make it later all mean leaders you've got. is i think it's. what $500.00. was that 300 euros 350 euros for 1000000 liters of water. it's pretty cheap when you
look at it from that perspective. isn't it a good thing that way a family putting a value on this resource because in putting a value on it we're going to respect that will. in this new world every drop count. water is no longer a natural resource but a commodity. in the world the water markets the key players of the agricultural industry as is the case with webster the country's largest producer the about. the directors of this company are among the richest water. at the head of
a reserve worth more than $200000000.00. the oms a mass conservation and exported all over the world in relation to the amount of water used this is their most profitable crawl. on this farm brendan barry as the title of water manager. this is a new area of expertise. that they. that some would call any. well you know what righty. if you've got to be here then be up in the types of music in the bible. but the name trail of the real number of. days i will not figure in that but they are the best seller but far
from pretty much where on some of the mystique you said the old. days used to mock at one. the total value of the water is more valuable than all the land we all know the plant and equipment and all the laws stock that we hold. the water market in this area this year has gone from about $320.00 per meghalaya to have a $700.00 per megawatt hour and that's in a period of a gram 5 months. and that will probably double the process but that's how it works .
that in america in a region of the wonder joy of tragedy and violence but it doesn't matter where you are you'll have to be able to relate to the human condition and. not see it right away. i've been covering all of latin america for most of my career but no country has to like and it's my job to lead light on how and why. i'm counting the cost a special report from iran has done what u.s.
sanctions will to bring the country's marketplace to a near standstill but despite the highest death toll in the middle east the government has shifted focus from saving lives to save the economy counting the cost on al-jazeera. the british iraqi journalist visualizing complex statistics and a simple. i think. sites. from the systems of power and. in a way that represent different. challenging mainstream misconceptions. it doesn't alienate people it doesn't make people. understand this truth is it anyway on al-jazeera. his country's begin easy coronavirus restriction scientists warn of a 2nd wave of infection in the last few. neighborhoods and many fear the economy is be prioritised about for human life until. you have to
focus on the out here because i can. we bring you the latest developments from across the globe coronavirus fund special coverage on. this is al jazeera. with a check on your world headlines the national guard is pulling out of washington d.c. nearly 2 weeks off the death of george floyd sparked rallies and cries for justice across the u.s. president donald trump who once ordered troops to dominate the streets on stop violent protests now says the forces are no longer needed but demonstrations have continued with thousands of peaceful protesters valid to keep up the message that black lives matter meanwhile the u.s. attorney general has denied that law enforcement has systematic problems with racism. i think there's racism in the united states still but i don't think that
the local law enforcement system is just down the clique racist i understand the distrust however of the african-american community given the history in this country and i think we have to recognize that for most of our history our institutions were explicitly racist mayor of minneapolis where george floyd was killed has been booed by a crowd of protesters and told to go home. the testers were angry after jacob frey refused to withdraw financial support from the city's police department in the wake of floyd's death frey told the crowd he favors reforms instead of anti racism rallies are spreading across europe in the u.k. city of bristol protesters tore down a statue of a 17th century slave trader and threw it into a river. demonstrated outside the u.s. embassy in london as well protesters towards
a man demonstrating against president jr balsa narrow in several brazilian cities there is widespread anger over the government's handling of coronavirus allegations of corruption and police brutality. the united nations says it's received reports of looting in 2 libyan towns which were recently recaptured for more lords $24.00 have to add on thursday forces loyal to the un backed government drove have to its forces out of town who are now effectively ending his offensive on the capital tripoli. israel's prime minister has called the killing of a palestinian man with autism a tragedy but stopped short of apologizing for its. chased and shot dead by israeli forces last month those are the headlines it's back to lourdes off water next thanks for watching.
well. as water manager brendan is more of a trader than a fama. a big stack of grind has a value that's money water is no different in that sense. you know our business we want to use your water officially because if we do that we can draw to grow to profit into the business and that's what we're ultimately here for is to deliver a profit for the shareholders. interest. he manages his stock with the help of a specialized broke up next battus. he too embodies the new generation businessman looking to exploit water. for them drought means good business.
it's an. interesting lease. i don't think this yet thousands of mega late is on the market at the moment. you know the market doesn't seem to be terribly logical at the moment in our view it's sort of great in fear. market it's a balance between yeah that's very good that's that's that's because of where we are and there's not that much more ransom paid off really really skittish. frustrating life. so i go yeah look i think you know dairies and such and such a state down there you know the number of kids getting sold a lot of it's quite. ridiculous yet that one of the very best of every dairy farms on the market so if you did want to do something down there i think is you know
acquiring land still going to be not going to be typical of you so you were accustomed. to. one and i don't. want to go there but young. when i go beyond my. own i order if they take 50 but they're going to be out there and i say. are they not 810-1010 point 8 bucks what i got you know up what really got there 93204050 party orders when i want to leave here and. i mean i want to. hunt it out and buy my car behind who are going to
buy it or i would still really believe that i did it with a very well. known. for that one i don't know what the little one so you're still going to use when you sold it on to you. but you've never been used over. the want to crisis and soaring prices have forced david dunn into bankruptcy. he has had to sell the family dairy phone and now joins the long list of victims of the water markets don't know everything i know that if i'm going to bump into one right. it's an end of an era we're going in this district go off. of it leave more than change kilometers from where our ship. yeah special dog.
trainer. no no no no no and we went on an opening night and i don't know any before and i don't want to you look at the cash flies for the last 12 months and 4 years ago when the real was you spending more and more waters and then jenny said to me. we concave going on a lot this. that called the citation was very nauseous. 3 more dishes in the in the sink and stump they out there. as their emotional. speed log is probably not as much emotion as slight or wrong when we selling calles i can tell you who i'm on the raise and who are
a grandmother like gravel. salt i tell me again i've worked. with my 500. does that you know initially the creation of water markets was welcomed by farmers. big agricultural players saw it as an effective way to buy water while standers plan to supplement their income by selling their someplace where it will break to go down but if they are right but 10 years later the market had become worthless sucker if they want to write about the right you know a lot. of like there's lots of people that done understand what about i don't understand what a market just. lets you cave on with all the talk of the start of what's happening and i don't think a lot of us know what's happening or what a market. alicia buoying you know
a look at the water market because lots of dogs are out of the person. so special looking for a new thing go all day in the garden it's going off. the strain is on extremely low as has searing temperatures put emergency crews on notice and authorities ready to answer any major process records fell today and more city temple tomorrow i would add like forecast to hit 45 to gray's nudging the hottest guy on record for the city the city face wounded white having to control a night adelaide in southeast australia the driest city on the driest continent on the planet. adelaide serves as a think tank it's here at the university but the idea of water trading was conceived. and in some years you might get 0 water
so they said nobody can take any more water so you're going to have to find a white share was what happened very quickly. as a result of work that i did it all started i said well what we need to do is to unbundle the system and take a license and he set out the bank quite accounting system little lady everybody tried it like forced into doing that in all the regulations and. mike young is the founding father of the australian water markets a renowned economist he attended harvard university and has advised the united nations. this is the man writing the new history of water. boy scarcity is really think so water scarcity is part of the future of the world the global predictions of that by 2050 more than half the world will be living with
limited water resources an abundance is a thing of the past. water needs to be man he's in a very precious why. and why is it drives innovation that makes sure our water goes to the best use as it possibly can so we make money and feed ourselves well. and that lead to the interest in water markets and drive a revolution. the revolution started by mike young has turned climate change into a market force. it's fascinating to see how sophisticated our water markets of the come if this rainfall cost in a week's time the price of water will go down because farmers now they won't have
to irrigate if it's going to be really hot for the next fortnight in the price of water goes out. in the future. and i think the reason why you really come to a university is to buy the world a better place to live so i teach a course on how to my world a better place to live it. comes to oil thank you. mike young has opened up water markets to all farmers small savers and above all professional investors.
now a days everybody can buy water on the stock market for consumption or simply for speculation . when water becomes scarce i suppose. then somebody has to stop using it what markets do is they. discover and reveal the most appropriate people to pull out of agriculture as it is from making cars. as it is for lots of things we live in a competitive world. markets mature spot market stuff derivative markets for water options forwards new intelligence and information systems we're building artificial intelligence and machine learning forward as far as we're in the guy in the mike money but. michael
leaving it out of just trying to order so we're we're just the interest of the getting warm some might boil water to mike a living but just my king live boy audience showing water. the system was putting for the farmers to create wealth for the for the economy but it's fine taken from the farmers now. who's making the money. water purchased at the market price has drained the australian countryside. only the agricultural giants have the means to compete with the investors who are
pouncing on this new rule material. that they stains going around the world to encourage basis the bar into these trying water market with they used returns that they say buy on huge amounts of water and they might in huge money out of. water becoming the new australian gold it is if if you can mark a 25 percent return on your investment. or would new trial undo it.
was melbourne so i sustained 5 these temperatures hit 42.3 degrees on the city of life 42.921 living in the south the other state police and. the steel in the briefing the olympic games not the new lords of water live in the city of melbourne the business capital. they are bankers insurers pension and investment fund managers. and they are gradually taking control of this blue go. to the. i don't need to unload you know would i like and when would i consider it yes but i'm not a farmer i'm an investment banker harvester doing lest not much maybe $20000000.00 . the price of water has doubled but in the next 10 years it will double again
because of intensive agriculture and. there's a lot of discontent between the farmers and the people controlling the water and so the farmers sometimes look at these people as water barons or water bandits because they're controlling water that many times i can afford. as an owner of expansive water reserves david williams rents his water to farmers as others would rent land. and the future is looking bright. if we go to 9000000000 population and the chinese want more food in the indonesian one. offered in the unions what will food and i can afford to pay for it then we need to find more intensive ways of growing food that means more water.
and that's going to lead you smack bang in you get that water and you price it had you allocate it and how you regulate it. but the being the best on water 'd it's getting back to. the landlords and the pace of us if we want to. do it we're going after the border. the water is way back to the middle i just. in the name of fighting global warming the loads of water have made an agreement with the environmentalists. a portion of lake and river water is now protected it feeds the ecosystem and is kept
out of the market. this aligns brought about the large majority vote in favor of water reform. as i'm talking to you today we're about to have 7 days in a right here in adelaide above 37 degrees celsius. that is the 4th time in 2 months where we've had that. high temperature climate change is happening and it's happening now and it is impacting on the levels of water usage and the water that is being returned to the system. from the ridges struggling and so we had to start putting a value on it. environmental
organizations are now taking advantage of the markets to buy water and return it to nature. the agriculture industry in australia with billions of dollars the value of war. is worth even billions more so if we want to make sure this the river is kept alive if you want to make sure there's water there for the future we have to engage in that process that of course forced a proper market for water buying and trading. has a strategy got it right yet no we don't and we might be the test case we haven't got it 100 percent.
water was the last remaining natural resource to have a scape trading. 'd 'd but australia has just blown the final whistle. the time has come for maximum profitability and the creation of wealth. ready for my people to be offered this land and this water. 'd water for me and my people it's a part of who we are. ready ready ready it's a part of our stories our creation story. today is different. australia has
implemented what are markets. how do you know that. we don't like it very much we don't like it at all 'd. well pushing kind of everyone else interesting ok. with. that and i've got my right to. life. when. selling trading what does that. feeling you. making sure that you're. making sure that no nurse spoke you were.
part of. a most of the group. * * * * * greedy people. * * * that want the wrote a book or 4. * and they're selling to. you connie money. congress money. the water is like the grains you know body. earth mother earth. like our bodies. the water 'd clothes food. you really feel that the wood isn't water but. 2
it feeds your spirit. without the spirit of god we all know the. name. you know jane already and already very young and fresh and bright and a big ole are new to our new time you know they aren't in uganda now and brisco and all that already based on your name. and the. the producers of this program asked mcquarrie group to be interviewed but they declined. so al-jazeera asked mcquarrie to respond to statements made about them in
the program. mcquarrie replied to say that they took their role in economic can community infrastructure very seriously. that in the time their fund was a shareholder thames water had made $14700000000.00 of capital investment. and that this had allowed thames water to reduce leakage and to keep bills at a low level. they went on to say that the investment had been financed by profits and borrowing and had been approved by the u.k. water services regulator off what. they concluded by saying that thames water had paid an average dividend to shareholders of 11 percent of capital expenditure. the last stage in the financial i say sion of water. the long term
a stock market index to bet on water prices by nasdaq a stock exchange specializing in technology. this is the 1st time that water has been reduced to an algorithm. is water the next oil we set it up as a question and then mostly dismissed are the questions not going to go away we're just probably not ready for it yet there is no alternative to pricing water properly and making people realise that every time they take a sip of water there is an opportunity cost and they feel it in their wallet. what about the guy that can't afford it that guy still needs water. during the fight against the financialization of water is fueled by the refusal to accept any sort of privatizing. the global water rush is accelerating
privatisation competition profit when they say it's got to be a commodity it's because they know that the scarcer it becomes in a world where you desperately need water there's this gold it's gold it's blue gold . and i was no fault of using could do is some more rain suffering a drought at the moment the rain is not heading your way is mostly in this current
