8:04 pm
day, it will be too late for our children to do so. to mora, on the habit at o. s. live and glasgow for is with the latest her habit. we're hearing there about doomsday clocks and digging our own graves. it doesn't signs much like the leaders themselves think this conference was, could achieve anything, hasn't did holla, this speeches had to be made to try and show the world that the clock is ticking. and that not much time is left because the united nations is already predicting a $2.00 increase in global greenhouse emissions, which could be catastrophic if not. and i'm in a reduced of course the over arching m goal of these $26.00 is to a lower and global
8:05 pm
a greenhouse emissions and also slowed down the global warming phenomenon. that has brought us here to a situation where as some island states are facing extinction, with rising sea levels. and some of the delegates we spoke to after those 1st speeches were made have been telling us that they expected these peaches to set the temple at this a conference so that the negotiations over the next 11 or 4 days could be done with the seriousness that they're supposed to be held with and then they're more than almost $200.00 countries are represented here. and most of the big world, big names the world lead us, i hear say, for the russian president vladimir putin and the russian leader. should jim being present, joe biden is here,
8:06 pm
and his presence alone at the summit at together with most of his cabinet ministers actually is a welcome relief for many people. because as you know, donald trump had taken the united states out of the parties agreement and now, and the message here is that the united states is back at the table and ready to deal climate change. because these, the other issue of funding for poor countries who are at the front lines of climate change and hope is freezing the brunt of most of these effects of climate change and the message just a few moments ago from the president of the e. u commission. or seller von the land, or will come as that a live to them, that the eel is ready to fund efforts in combating climate change. the 12 years ago, they were promised the 100000000000 by 2020. that was not the children that go post
8:07 pm
has not been moved to 2023. and leaders from the least developed countries of the world have been really shall think themselves hor, saying that they need climate financing to ensure that they have to offset all these issues. that they have because of climate change, that funding promise woocommerce that a lift of them and to mom, if you're in glasgow, there you are, the hearing from people and said, seeing higher expectations are effectively at being managed. what do you think we should be looking out for in the days ahead? ah, it's hard to tell at this point, because there are many days of negotiations left it, but the scene has been set and all that's also very strong and passion. it's pictures we have had a lay the ground for city us negotiations in the days i had a to model will be
8:08 pm
a day of speeches as well, from world leaders gathered here. and then the negotiators. then there were shades as will huddle in groups at walk on texts in a bit to try and come out with a bill at the end. ready when the conference closes on the 12th of november, up until now it's very hard to tell what will come on. we also saw some attempt at managing expectations, particularly from the secretary general of the united nations. when he's safe, if we do not achieve what we came here for, then individual countries will have to look into their plans, not just every 5 years, but every year to ensure that fossil fuels are faced out to us. so us a call as well. and then add the acceleration or to electric cars and also putting a hold to deforestation. so you know,
8:09 pm
even the leaders themselves know that they won't be able to achieve everything they came here for. and that's one of the reasons why they were trying to manage expectations. i came at that our, their life, or as at the current 267 in glasgow, moore, thank you very much. in deeds 5000000 people have no died from cold at 19. that number comes from johns hopkins university, but the world health organization estimates the actual figure could be almost 3 times higher than health authorities suggest viruses. first identifies in the chinese city of war, hung in december 2019, almost 250000000 infections have since been reported globally. when a statement, the un secretary general, antonio good terror said this devastating milestone reminds us that we are failing
8:10 pm
much of the world. while wealthy countries are ruling out, thirds doses of the cool with 19 vaccine, only about 5 percent of people in africa are fully vaccinated. this is a global shame group to has this reports. people gasping for air, families torn apart, and governments forced to close borders and order. millions of people to be confined to their homes. the coven, 19 pandemic, have now killed more people than any other viral epidemic in the 21st century. but almost 2 years since the 1st case emerged in china's one province and a new coroner virus spread rapidly across the globe. effective vaccines, developed at a record pace, seemed to be having some impact. at the moment, that average number of daily depths worldwide is lower than what we were seeing
8:11 pm
last year. and a lot of that could be attributed to a combination of vaccination people. understanding how cobit in fix people and what they have to do to control it. but in russia, which produced the world's 1st domestically developed over 900 job, many people are reluctant to take it. and that's leading to a record number of deaths. and after the initial optimism of a fast maxing rule out, if you are the parts of western europe and china infections arising, it will be very interesting to see what happens in, in the northern hemisphere as by and large, many countries have no restrictions at all. now and back things, obviously the whole population is not vaccinated and, and as they go into winter, people are closing the windows and doors and, and there's a higher risk of transmission. and in both households and businesses and social
8:12 pm
social settings. so i think where we're about to learn a lot and that is how much we can rely on the vaccine on to why richard nations are racing to give booster shots. poor countries, particularly in africa, are struggling to get supplies of maxine leaving millions of people, fundable conflict and poverty have already devastated health care systems in syria . yemen, haiti on the craddick republic of congo, which have yet to vaccinate. even 5 percent of the populations. the lack of vaccination in the poll world has a huge impact in 2 ways. first up, many, many people are dying today that don't need to die. getting very, very sick and losing relatives. we still have a situation where nurses and doctors in some of these countries are not even protected against this kinda disease. the pandemic seem far from over.
8:13 pm
but some countries like australia, thailand, uncompleted, you are preparing for a new way of life. reopening their economies with more vaccines and fewer restrictions. priyanka the as 0 you have many government sources say, who's the missile strikes of killed at least 3 people. so the wednesday tellers, appropriate the attack targeted the job a district size. so the city of moderate who sees began their push to take control of the oil rich province 2 months ago. martin is the stronghold of the internationally recognized government the strike zone sunday, follow an announcement from the study led coalition that it had killed more than 200 who face in merit this week. phil had here on al jazeera, the supreme court here is arguments on texas. schools of bands, abortions, face can be detected, keeping the band in place and floods 95,

8:15 pm
the tempest behind will drop. but this is a hint of a change that could go a lot further south. by the end of the week, reaching the gulf states maybe already showing shares in western iran. however, we may leave it there for the surf tropical africa has seen the change in the wind direction or the east coast no longer. the southwest monsoon driven on shore breeze, a few light shouts, vainly the rainy's feather west. more or less from kenya, uganda, through burgundy, and round to was the congress is where the rain is concentrating. this is also correct for the season and rank own, of course it is welcomed and so far south is come at the moment. beyond that, a dry looking picture. oh, the weather sponsored by casara ways in the country with an abundance of results with great power and want indonesia, his friends for me, we moved full to growth and frock. we balance for green economy, blue economy,

and the digital economy with the new job creation law, indonesia is progressively ensuring the policy reform to create quality jobs. invest, let be part when denise is broke and progress, invest indonesia. now, with the me this is al jazeera coming to all this help stories for you know, president joe biden has told the cop 26 summit. the u. s. is committed to action on climate change, not just words. in the print world, leaders, the washington is once again a reliable partner. us temporarily left the 2015 parish agreement under former
8:17 pm
president, donald trump. in chief antonio with tara she also spoke at the opening of the summit morning that the world is seeking its own grade. he said, promises made by government so far, it lacks credibility, and 5000000 people have no died from who, with 19 that number comes and johns hopkins university. but the world health organization estimates the actual figures could be almost 3 times higher than health authorities suggest. let's take you to night jiri a now or at least one person is dead. after a 21 story building collapse in lagos, it's believed 50 people are trapped inside. the officials have been trying to demolish retrofit unsafe buildings, and more than ac buildings have been some bush this year so far. and the traces following the story from neighboring chat. what we know so far is that 2 people
8:18 pm
have been pulled out a lie 1st on the scenes, what ambulances and emergency workers, but there was nothing much they could do. they tried to dig through the rubble with their bands until this hour, 1518 minutes ago. when heavy duty machinery started coming into that area of lagos, which is a highbrow residential and commercial estate in may go city. and then the work started in earnest. looking at the rebel, the mountain of rebel, they in fact, needed much more bigger heavy duty commit to move the rubble in order to access the people who have been trapped inside the building. now it's not clear exactly how many people have been trapped and emergency workers are really silent about the number of people who've been killed because of this disaster. lagos is no stranger to this disaster. respecting the construction code has always been
8:19 pm
a difficult situation in lagos enforcement, despite enforcement such contravention, continue not only in lagos, but across the switches, the nigeria, people bribe officials to look the other way while the they go skimming things and making construction or constructing poorly built structures in lego, eventually these structures collapse and killed and lot of people every yeah, we regular stuff, such incidences. u. s supreme court is hearing arguments suffice an abortion law and texas the regulation effectively bands terminations. once a fetal heartbeat is detected, it's been an effect since september, but hundreds of thousands of people have protested against it across the country. the justice department says it violates alons mot ruling from 1973 or classical hate as life or as outside the u. s. supreme court patsy, what's happening at the supreme court and how does this feed into the voyager to
8:20 pm
base a bite abortion rights in the united states? exactly, i just wanna give you a sense of what's happening. the court arguments just wrapped up when almost 3 hours, which is a little bit on an unexpected. now you see the attorneys, the just argued before the court. those are those representing texas and the texas law talking to their supporters. we expect the other lawyers to come out very soon . basically the texas law aims go round roe v wade, which makes abortion most abortions, legal in the united states by not using state officials to enforce it. basically, anyone who thinks somebody's gotten an abortion. can sue anybody who helped facilitate that from driving them to a clinic at the doctors involved, then they can face up to a $10000.00 fine, and they can be sued multiple times. so the question before the supreme court is not, is that constitutional. the supreme court rushed this case up after allowing twice
8:21 pm
for the law to go into effect, because they want to find out if people can sue texas over this law. so there are 2 cases. one is the one is providers that the court seemed more willing to say yes, they can probably suv state officials in texas. the other is the, by the administration. can the federal government to, to basically stop texas for, into implementing this law. so the supreme court and not going to decide the fate of abortion on these cases. what is to come up is in december a law in mississippi that benz abortions after 15 weeks, the supreme court has agreed to take that up. so that could be a pivotal moment in the history of abortion rights in the united states. now, we're not going to hear anything for a while. the supreme court usually doesn't issue injunctions quickly, or at all, it's probably going to be a few months before we know which way this conservative court is leaning. ok, patsy, go hand lie for as i fight the supreme court. patsy. and i thank you to napoleon,
