7:02 am
more process will and this is all time to deliver on the high ambition set by our leaders. at the start of this summit, we must rise to the occasion. but alas, so say that current pledges are not enough and the earth is currently on track. for 2.7 degrees of warming. there has been some progress. china and the u. s. the world's top greenhouse gas emissions say they increased cooperation deals to end deforestation. cut methane and phase out fossil fuels have also been made, but financing the transition remains a key sticking point. we will continue to champion $1.00, which is on coalitions north star. hospital cities must end. we must double adaptation finance from current level. often damage is to central, to settle for workshops, we must strengthen action on law for them. and we need an article 6 resolution that
7:03 am
results in real reduction. the 0 sum offsetting era must in, with a minimum, we need to walk away. you can minimize the challenge now is for those of us who are progressive to fully belong and need to hold the line on children or grandchildren. this is critical now on the clock is following the negotiations for us in glasgow behind the scenes a lots of negotiations ongoing. we heard from the cult president alex sha mother and he's told us recently that said there are intensive consultations going on right now. and only through the night with the various negotiating blocks to try and find some common ground on the next iteration of the tax. and we're expecting that that's a 3rd one. we'll get that tomorrow at 8 o'clock in the morning. and after that, they'll be a meeting of all the countries involved. they'll talk about every bit,
7:04 am
they'll argue about it for a bit, then they'll go back to the respective negotiating blocks. and then in the afternoon, alec sharma says there will be a mass plenary where all the countries will come together. and he says at that point he's hoping to get some sort of resolution of glasgow. pat, if you like it, it will be a miracle. if that does happen. i suspected leone a bit longer, possibly into the night, possibly into sunday. at is a very complex set of negotiations. you can have a lot of situations where negotiating teams will be calling that capitals on particular negotiating issues, especially when it comes to issues like coal and so forth. phasing out coal big part of it, it's made it into the text is been watered down since the 1st draft and we'll see if it survives the night to night into the 3rd draft to morrow emissions. another big fact to this move to get countries to provide new commitments for next year. and then there's that big issue possibly the deal breaker of climate finance. not just the $100000000000.00
7:05 am
a year that was promised way back in 2009 and now will be delayed until 2023. but also that issue that we're hearing to say the while ago about loss and damage, whereby money is given to developing countries who are facing the worst effects of climate change. and for them, for the g $77.00, group of developing nations, that is a red line. if the rich countries don'ts out, the anti provide money that they need, then this whole deal is off. one of the countries who is refusing to commit to stronger short term targets is a stray leah, the federal government that doesn't support phasing out coal. critics have labeled straightly a climate pariah neglecting it's pacific island. they built like found a wall to who have the most to lose the archipelago is one of the most at risk countries in the wild with rising sea levels already encroaching on its land mass. it's representatives are calling for investment from wealthy nations to protect vulnerable islands on the front lines of climate change. sarah clark has more on
7:06 am
this for us from brisbin in australia. australian was very slow to commit to the 1st round of targets where they took met the 0 net emissions by 2050 a little on the short term targets by 2030. so by the end of the decade, tries been pushing back on that and the suggestion was to astronomy has been leading the charge this week in glasgow to try and walk down that agreement, which looks at the shorter tougher target for the short term as well as the phasing out on the dependence on coal astrology, of course, is the 2nd largest exporter of coal worlds. so one of the highest amid has in the prime minister has said scott morrison has said, even before he went to glasgow, that destroyed its no stallion policy to commit to mandates like this. now a strategy has pledged $500000000.00 in new climate funds for its asian pacific neighbors. and that certainly be welcomed by some of those countries including fiji . the fiji and prime minister met with scott morrison in glasgow. and he said this is certainly a start. now, unfortunately,
7:07 am
due to covert only for the specific nations were able to be represented by the leaders in glasgow. but i have so much to lose. that was a small group, but a large voice that scientists have said that the sea level rise in the pacific islands could be $2.00 to $3.00 times the global average. and some of those low lying coral at holes are simply won't survive and some of the islands will be uninhabitable by 2030. now we spoke to some villages in, i'm very watson and they discussed about what life is like, living with the extreme, whether they're experiencing on a daily basis. we just build and then it is destroyed and we build again. if the whole world can see what we are going through and find a solution to help us overcome these natural disasters. whenever a natural disaster comes, instead of us just rebuilding and rebuilding, we need solutions to be found for us at a community over a level. are leaders of the asia pacific region have pledged increased cooperation to help lead the recovery from the curve at 1900 pandemic. the apex summit was
7:08 am
hosted virtually by new zealand and came amid increasing regional attention, particularly between the united states and china. when hey, reports, ah, they were the traditional welcomes and ceremonies as new zealand hosted this he is asia pacific economic cooperation meetings. but for the 2nd consecutive year, the coven, 19 pandemic ment, those meetings were held virtually. the culmination was the leaders summit, which resulted in a joint declaration full of positivity around co operation on the environment economy and the pandemic. so where they may have been potentially in the past, an opportunity are or at an area where you may have st forms of protectionism or nationalism in the response. you. so the opposite. a real commitment from a peak economy to overcome noise issues. in normal times, it's the sideline meetings, away from the spotlight with a big decisions and deals are made in the virtual world. it's difficult to get a sense of any tension, but it was brought to the surface during
7:09 am
a speech by china's president. she jin ping to a c e o summit. the day before the lead is met, shall be thought knocking, taught and move ahead. i reject practices are of discrimination and exclusion of others using attempts to draw do article lines or forms more circles on geopolitical crowns are bound to fail. the issue, pacific region being cannot and should not rely please enter the confrontation and division of the cold war era. his comments appeared to be in response to the united states, increasing military cooperation with regional allies, including india, japan and australia, and came after years of trade. tensions between the 2 countries. on monday, president, she will meet virtually with his u. s counterpart, joe biden. there are also issues around the trade pact known as the comprehensive and progressive agreement for trends. pacific partnership, all 11 members are also apec members. and now china wants to join. but so does
7:10 am
taiwan, which beijing regards as a breakaway province, that it will one day retake. there was, of course, no mention that at this a pig summers, not publicly any way, but despite the virtual nature of the meeting, there was still an opportunity for the tradition of the leaders posing in an item of clothing of the host choice wayne, hey, al jazeera toner, new zealand, all as well, just mentioned there and not to anticipate advance will cement between the chinese and us presidents will happen on monday. it's the 1st major opportunity for them to improve relations. tensions have been rising over taiwan and american support of the pro democracy protests and hong kong. alan fisher has more now from the white us. some it still happened unless there is an outcome agreed in advance, and that's we're expecting to see joe biden would love to meet ging paying in person. but that's not happening at the chinese president simply not leaving the country and hasn't done it since march last year. so this will all be done
7:11 am
virtually will be done here at the white house. on monday they will talk about a number of things that they have in common. first of all, getting on top of the corporate crisis, there's the global supply chain as well. 3 there is also the climate change, and we know that joe biden was pretty critical of the chinese for not showing up in glasgow essentially seeing that if you want to be a while leader, you have to show up to lead. and there will be other things that they will touch on, including nuclear weapons. they will talk about it, china's military operations in an around taiwan. i remember it's just a week ago that the americans have said that they are obliged. your biden said that they are obliged to defend taiwan and would do so. and of course, there's been quite a leap forward in chinese military technology with them testing a supersonic aircraft that can go into space or something that might millie, who is the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff here in the united states, said the change in china's wealth and also its military operations is the greatest
7:12 am
geopolitical shift in more than 20 years. so yes, they've got a lot to cover while they're able to do it one day, probably not. but if they can show some sort of cooperation on things like exports and visa controls, then they will regard this as a success. and it's really about getting the relationship back on track. because the relationship between the chinese and the united states has been, it's still me for a number of months or former donald trump aids chief. balin has now been formally charged with contempt of congress. he was subpoenaed by the committee, investigating the january 6. the attack on the capital, but as refusing to testify, the house of representatives panel is trying to determine the origins of the plan by france, pump supporters to stop the certification of president by the 2020 election. when kristen salumi has the detail where there are 2 contempt of congress charges, one for failing to testify before the house committee and another for failing to
7:13 am
produce documents requested by the committee. steve ban in the long time adviser to the former president was subpoenaed and asked to appear by the committee that is investigating the january 6 capital breach. they say that they had reason to believe that he had information regarding the balance that took place that day. they point to statements, he made the day before the january 6 attack on the capital in a podcast in which he said that extreme events were going to happen and quotes all hell is going to break loose on the following day. so the house wanted to hear what steve bandon had to say when he didn't show up. they voted him in contempt of court . that finding was turned over to the courts in the united states. the u. s. attorney presented it to a so called grand jury, who found that there was reason to move forward with criminal charges against the
7:14 am
president's former adviser and peace found guilty of these charges. he could face up to a year in prison on each one as well as a significant fine holder is fine. as a former us associate deputy attorney general and he says he thinks bannon is hoping that trump will win the presidency in 2024 and pardon him. but i think what this case reveals is the dare election of congress to end the delaying tactics. that in i, the american people, the urgent need to know what transpired on january 6th, what were the motives behind it? because it was the most serious effort in the history of the united states, basically, to overthrow our constitutional system for peaceful transfers of presidential power . the united states supreme court has repeatedly affirm the power of congress to inherently punish those who defy its a penis with imprisonment in congressional detention centers by fines. and even
7:15 am
with regard to impeachment, the congress of the united states voted an article of impeachment against richard nixon. for flouting one subpoena until all of this court maneuvering can be avoided if congress will just step up to the plate and assert its prague of, of inherent contempt authority and make these people pay a penalty immediately. moreover, the united states supreme court has never once held that executive privilege can be asserted against congress. never once tried it made evaluations of asserting it against judges. the nixon case, it is not an absolute privilege, but i do not believe even this supreme court, which is populated by 3 justices appointed by president trump, would for the 1st time and 234 years say that president executive branch, or even a former president kanai congress, this plenary power of oversight to ensure we have government in the sunshine and that all worries about corrupting the process of politics and elections are
7:16 am
discharged by oversight. and full information are still ahead here on out as in the u. n. z envoy on extreme poverty isn't lebanon, will tell you his assessment of what people they are facing every day now. and me and the sentence, as an american journalist at 11 years in prison, hunting condemnations and concerns from both the un and washington. ah, ah, look forward to brighter skies the weather sponsored my cattle airways. and i once again welcome to another look at the international forecast taste of where winter coming into northern parts of the middle east. this band of clabbered extends all the way down to the red sea, bringing some egg, outbreaks of rain across sir western pass, saudi arabia, eastern areas of egypt to cease him, wet weather,

7:20 am
scenes were filmed by russia's sputnik agency, apparently showing belushi and forces handing out food. it's not clear how many of the thousands of people kept out with have got anything. here as a woman lies ill on the ground. people show a bellowed lucien god. what asked man hale as she needs. some families have been given the basics, diapers, medicine, and drinking water. but as the main response on either side continues to be a military one, these people are stuck in a political game. they can't control it. we're, we're one of poland, most famous actresses, has joined activists to call on the government to allow people to help me ago she came across 3 peoples that had made it through the boarding to poland. but they've been attacking for women. her husband and her dear friend were bitten, really frightened, they were scurry, they asked about her on the road. some people, i talked to them, stolen them money, or more buyers,
7:21 am
everything. he was bitten by. i. some of my poll thing are on the move his head. so he was taken to the hospital. and exclusions own means that there's no way of knowing what exactly polish forces are doomed to keep people out of their country. on the country roads near the border, soldiers, guns in hand have set up checkpoints. vehicles are being stopped searched and some people's documents are being checked. but even with this massive presence along the border, poland knows that some people will manage to get through. soldiers here have told us that if we the media were able to see what they're doing, than they wouldn't be able to do their jobs. but desperate people still remain stuck in the forest between 2 groups of soldiers as had beg, i'll da 0, poland. lebanon's government is failing its people. that's the verdict of the un envoy on extreme poverty who's been visiting the country. olivia to shoot to says lebanon is in danger of becoming a failed space. then, on a report from barriers,
7:22 am
the un human rights council sent an invoice to lebanon to look at how the government here has been addressing one of the world's worst economic crises. olivia, this shall tear spoke to those affected officials as well as the donor community, which he said is running out of patience with the government for failing to reform the system. and it's not just the international community who lost trust in them. when i told many people about my mission, when i spoke to families who are destitute in books or moods in people in val bake, they often answered macedonia. there is no state that has not confidence in the ability of the state to provide a response. so if you want to avoid explained in detail how, here's of long standing inequalities, the lack of social protection system and an economic model that benefited the rich
7:23 am
contributed to the collapse. for example, the connections between politicians and the private sector reached the highest levels of political power in lebanon. 18 out of 20 banks had major shareholders linked to political elite. lebanon is also one of the most unequal countries in the world where some 10 percent of the population holds nearly 70 percent of the wealth . while 40 percent of public revenue comes from taxes that affect the poor. the authorities have been blamed for decades of mismanagement and corruption have failed to stop the economic collapse. it took 13 months of political bickering before they agreed on a new cabinets in september. but it hasn't been able to convene in the past month because of a new political crisis. there should tear blame government in action for what he called a manufactured crisis that ruined lives and condemned the majority of the population into poverty. the population is facing unprecedented challenges,
7:24 am
impoverishment is widespread. i saw scenes in lebanon that i had not imagined i would ever see in the middle income country. the un envoy then described lebanon as a failed state, at least not yet. he did say it is headed in that direction with a government failing its population. that doesn't believe it will work. and the public's interest that there should be wrote on hundreds of pro, radian paramilitary for supporters continue to protest last month's election results and iraq. the demonstrations want the ballots recounted manually due to alleged voter fraud. wrap it up, my head has worn out from baghdad as those have most closer to the gates of the green zone. and but does, these are supporters of the pro iranian political parties. that last and the parliamentary elections, the recent anger has been,
7:25 am
has been figured by then i was him and recently made by the supreme council of judiciary that the vote rigging claims in the parliamentary elections have no legal standing. now that means that the electoral commission is moving forward to endorse the initial results of the election. and that if boss is not in favor of that through iranian political parties, that last many cease and dependency and actions. they say that they say that unless consensus as reaching between the rival, parliamentary blocks between that i have on a political part parties, then they will continue protesting here looking roads near the green zone. most of these protest notices are minutes. the individuals,
7:26 am
even in civilian custom, but the miniature individuals, that a members of the pup without a mobilization forces the military winks of the pro iranian political parties. that last many seats and election and many of them, he has say that the only way that they can leave the area as that then parties take part in forming the government. but it's that happens as death through iranian political parties that are accused of corruption accused of mismanagement, accused of runing, the state farm and the state in institutions. if they take part in forming the new government, then then that would bring the country back to square one back to 2019. when resisted, but it rose up against forgotten. now the un high commissioner of human rights,
