4:30 pm
oh, lou ah, you're watching the news hour on al jazeera with me fully by table. a reminder of our top stories of danny's sons. new taliban government is calling on the international community to end its isolation, which it says, risks undermining security. the acting foreign minister is meeting us and european envoys in ca, top the united nations as recall to senior officials working in ethiopia because of security concerns. it comes after a very find recording surface in which to un workers say un officials sympathize with rebels intake, right and progress towards clean energy is far too slow and governments must
4:31 pm
triple spending. that's a call from the international energy agency. it says the world is set to miss its met 0 target by 2050 by 60 percent. well let's talk about this with cornelia meyer, who's the chief executive officer of my resources, an oil and gas specialists. thank you very much, cornelia for being with us. joining us from switzerland. so the i yay says 4 trillion dollars of investment in clean energy is needed in the next decade. first of all, what do you make of this are bought and how realistic and achievable is? well, i think, you know, it's a d, i a has stung the numbers on. if we want to get to net 0 by 2050, what it will take them, they have come to the conclusion. got 8. so that only about a 3rd of what is needed to be invested in renewable energy has been invested. so it needs to be up by 2 thirds to get where i look at it. it may not be,
4:32 pm
it may be realistic in terms of europe where, you know, with the, with the green deal it's, it's, it's very focused on being the 1st climate. the net 0 continent is much less real is the developing world where the money is just not there for these sort of investments. and it under estimates the importance of, you know, fuels like gas as transition fuels to get us over to hum until we have enough renewable energy. now let's talk about the high energy prices that europe is experiencing right now. you know, last year, the height of the current of ice pandemic, there was a surplus in oil where countries couldn't even find storage space. and today you have this crisis. what is it down to? is it just a supply and demand issue or the other factors at play here like the push for green energy, for example? well, i think it's, it's,
4:33 pm
it's many factors and was all yes with very high oil prices, but we still have sort of enough oil to go around with gas. we do not have enough gas to go around in europe and in china and asia currently. and part of that really is that we're not, you know, that, that with all of these e s d environment, social and governance point. it's not enough money flowing into gas and so on. we also had a very cold, cold winter last year. so storage was depleted, the economies turn around and is going gang busters again. so the demand is there. so we really are in a scenario of a perfect storm. and so for the time being only europe is affected, but do you see it having a ripple effect where other countries, other regions also be impacted? should we be bracing for wider economic damage beyond the energy sector and beyond europe? well, it's not just europe, it's also china and big china. it's
4:34 pm
a problem of coal, is a problem of colon guess. and part of the problem for europe is that for the liquefied natural gas, the l n g. china has become a major competitor. so far it was korea and japan were to import this, but this year, china, we will overtake a japan as the largest import rafael n t, so that the competition is there. so we see the china factors, they're rolling blackouts, rolling brown outs factors have to be closed down. so we see we see the across the board and we just need to make sure as we go through this very important energy transition. and everybody wants to get to net 0 and save the planet. but as we are getting there, we need to make sure we have the transition fuels ready. and we think very carefully on, on, on how we, how we make that transition. thank you so much for talking to connie,
4:35 pm
about this cornelia maya, joining us there from switzerland. thank you for your insight. thank you very much . now, hollywood saw how inspired generations with the idea of exploring other planets, soundtracks. william shatner is the latest celebrity to take on that mission. his on board, a blue origin spacecraft, which is due to lift off shortly from van horn in texas. a 90 year old is set to become the oldest person to go to space. his launch was scheduled for monday, but it was delayed because of strong winds. now the 19 year old. oh blade captain kirk, of course, in the series, will be on board a blue origin capsule, which is blasting off from texas, as we've said, is following in the footsteps of the world's richest man jeff bezos. he reached out a space in july which the world governing body puts at about 100 kilometers above earth. that same month entrepreneur richard branson also took off in his specially designed rocket, plain branson's virgin galactic mission, reaching out to altitude of 88 kilometers. now both commercial flights are still
4:36 pm
a long way from the international space station which orbit around 400 kilometers above earth. but all our major milestones, of course, in the push towards private commercial space travel live to andy gallagher, who's in miami for his lunch time for william shatner's is what 20 minutes away. andy, it's been a long time coming for shot. and i have to say, can you tell us about what's going to happen and you know how this is all going to unfold? well, we're about a half an hour away from launch. everything looks good. that should have been in launch on tuesday that was delayed because of high winds. but look, captain kirk is going to the final frontier. that's all anyone cares about. on this particular 2nd man mission of the new shepherd rocket. this, i think will mean so much to so many people around the world. remember william shatner 1st hit the tv screens in 1966 up 3 years before we landed on the moon. and here we are more than half a century later. and william shatner,
4:37 pm
also known as captain james, ty, barriers kirk is about to learn shop to the edge of space. now some space, know that there might say, look, he's actually go into space. he's just going outside of the atmosphere. but nonetheless, this is a 90 year old man who is taking this risk because of course there are dangers involved, but i think the public speak who for blue origin project phase off in this 1000000000 as boys club race to space, you know, can't be underestimating star trek as a tv show, how a huge influence on many of the people that are working on the blue origin project . i've seen them saying that very thing. so the fact that william shatner is about to blast off. remember, this whole trip will only last about 10 minutes. they blast off to about a 100 kilometers above that. let's say they go through about 3 minutes of weightlessness before parachuting back down to worth. but in terms of putting a related person on this new shepherd rocket, you can't really get much better than captain william. there is something i think
4:38 pm
that will renew interest in private space travel and you know, we're seeing the democratization of this. hopefully the costs will come down and maybe one day you and i probably will be able to do the same thing. i don't know if i want to go to be honest. thank you. thank you for the moment. and gallagher will come back to you. of course, when william shatner blocked off in just a few minutes from texas. in the meantime, let's move on to other news. more than 250 policy and prisoners from the islamic jihad movement have started hunger strike, prisoners say they have been facing for the punishment after 6 inmates tunnel their way out of a maximum security j a last month. you know, abraham has more from my last islamic jihad saying that this batch will be joined by more and more prisoners. and some of them are even from different political parties, with a 100 of them intending to stop drinking water athletes, or sage. in addition to that hunger strikes 30 man is that they want their situation inside this prison to return back to how it was in september before
