10:08 pm
fires in this part of the country may be under control for now, but there is still smoke hanging in the air. you can see it obscuring the landscape . you can even smell it for the people living here. and for those fire rescue teams that are based here in tomorrow. these are ever present reminders of the wild, far season is far from over. oh, you're my for 3 generations, yolanda my. oh, julians family has lived and worked on this when you mom. she watched their bar and go up in flames in minutes. oh. taking stock. she says they don't know how they'll be able to recover. and ya know, gary, arizona, on bonham, i've never seen anything like this before. the fire came very quickly with a lot of wind. it was just relentless. we could do absolutely nothing. it's still going. it still has a lot of power. it just,
10:09 pm
there used to be hundreds of animals here, most removed, but yolanda family could not save the hay. the livestock deeds even before the wildfires changed this landscape, life here was hard. families struggling just to make a living are now scrambling to keep their future from turning to ash. zane basra, the old 0 tara spain. thousands of people increase have had to leave their homes as fires by near the capital offense. crews are on the slopes of mount antelli battling flames which are being fanned by strong winds. some people try to protect arms using shovels and hoses, or to bombing aircraft, and helicopters also being used to try and control the blaze. several buildings and homes have also been damaged. also, jabari has worn out from the town of drafty. according to officials who we spoke to
10:10 pm
from the fire department, the main concern and the challenges they face overnight was the high winds and the changing direction of the wind, which was helping the fires continue. and this now spread to the region. just about 10 minutes drive north of here behind the mountains, behind me of the delhi region. and those flames continue as we speak because they have affecting nearly 30000 residents in that area. in this town, about 3500 residents were evacuated on tuesday afternoon. and as you can see, as there is very little activity going on right now, because it is still very much off limits to most of the residents, we have to ask for special permission to enter here. see what is the pause, what is the fire, the damage cause we also saw a number of homes that have been burned in this town. now they are nearly 500 firefighters and about 125 trucks that are in working in
10:11 pm
this area, trying to control the situation. this is of course, one of the many fires that have been ongoing since the start of the fire season, according to the governments that is as of may 1st until july 14th, they've recorded new 2500 wildfires in greece. and of course, the hardest weeks have not even approached that that is in august. so there is certainly a concern about what is to come yet. well, the french president has met 5 fighters in the south west of the country as blazes spread across the region. a manual microns in your own, that region where nearly $200.00 square can on which is a forest land have been destroyed, strong winds and droughts being blamed for this. the french emergency service is also battling fires in brittany in the northwest, where hundreds of people have had to leave their homes. the salesman can somewhat on view the changes we are experiencing, not only effect france,
10:12 pm
it affects the entire mediterranean region and even beyond several countries that would not experience and great fires are living through an acceleration of dorit consequences of climate change. and so all of this will require us to make critical decisions upon the disease. you as president joe biden has just announced 2300000000 dollars in funding to help communities deal with climate change. it will turn out executive actions to combat the climb emergency in the coming days. so we have to act extreme whether it is drug supplied. jays caused delays and shortages for consumers and businesses. climate change is literally an existential threat to our nation and to the world. so my message today is this, since congress is not active as it should. and these guys here are, but we're not get many republican votes. this is an emergency o mike had joins his life in white house in might. we've just been looking at to extreme weather events
10:13 pm
affecting countries in europe, also in asia. and then they've been heat waves and wild fires ravaging parts of america as well. what did president biden have to say about this? well, president bryan's critics have insisted that he has not done enough to come to climate change and they've been asking, in particular why he does not use his executive powers to pass orders that would improve the battle against climate change. now, it seems that president biden is reluctant to do this, that he would prefer congress to pass legislation. but as you heard there, there's opposition in congress to passing legislation in the senate. there's even one of president biden's own party who's walked away from climate change negotiations. so there has not been anything tangible announced in this speech to day. as i said, he had been pressed by his critics to announce emergency legislation, which would make it easier for his administration to limit the activities of fossil
10:14 pm
fueled industries on federal lands. he did say, however, this executive orders may be coming in coming days, but this is something that the biden administration has been saying in recent weeks that they will be executive orders in recent incoming days, but not being as specific about what they are or indeed when they will be invoked. so the criticism, what president biden remains though, he trumpeted. the successes of his administration, which he contends has been evident over the years that his administration has been impala. and he has re established his commitment to fighting against a climate change. something that he has declared once again is a national emergency. it's a clear and present danger. all right, thank you very much. and his air is my can, are putting tests from the white house. in watching al jazeera live from london,
10:15 pm
much more still had for you on the program. allegations of extra judicial killings, arbitrary arrest and torture. life in afghanistan, almost a year after the taliban seized power and bangladesh takes the drastic action to conserve fuel and power during an escalating energy crisis. ah ah, the right, the heat waves been swept away, at least in the british isles, from a good part of france is being pushed in this general direction by well, a cold front so head is colder. it's not cold, just come down to average the forecast for london for 35 years, i think is a roundabout where it should be some cabinet sky. probably no showers. there are a moment for they could disappear. in fact, the may rain if it falls,
10:16 pm
it'll be significant. will be somewhere like the netherland maybe parts of germany down towards midwest, the side of austria and the outs. if you're lucky, it would be good stuff, but further south has nothing. nothing for southern france, spain, portugal, and it's the remains dry and hot. now the unusual heat is probably gonna be eastern poland, up through the baltic states and briefly in sweden that sweat 2 and stockholm spect and $25.00. let me get to friday, but i did say southern europe is a different story in seville attempt just to riding very high the records 466. we're not got them at the average is $36.00. we're well above that once again. and that goes for most of the mediterranean countries and beyond in towards turkey, which means the wildfires are spreading, you know, they're in spain, pasco, and france. and his, the latest one picture every night, just north of athens in greece. water can, i'm afraid. ah,
10:17 pm
