watched. normally, chinese leaders stand down after serving 10 years in office. but cheating ping is expected to break convention by being appointed for another 5 years. he presented himself as a humble servant of the party, but a party that's been re made in his image as one expert. so having seized control in the chinese communist party, seed him him, then seize control on china and china has become a lot less free, a lot more aggressive, far less. and then it was 10 years ago. the congress comes at a turbulent time for china. she's 0 cobit policy has trapped millions of people in a series of stop start, lock downs, borders remain close to most foreigners. many overseas investors of fled. she's focus here though i was on the positive for road. she lavishing wifi aging. we

the central government exercises overall jurisdictions over the 2 regions who will see that hong kong and macau are administered by patriot logins. jessica washington has more from home home. well, the congress is being received here in hong kong with varying degrees of interest. some organizations here and hong kong, organized events for people to watch president. she's speech, but many others are just going about their normal daily lives. it's worth noting that this congress takes place as hong kong has experienced some rather dramatic changes in recent years under president. she didn't think leadership, namely the introduction in 2020 of a national security law in response to the unrest that the city experienced in 2019 over concerns about aging growing influence in the city. and then in 2021. some changes to the home homes electro system. so what we're likely to see over the course of the congress is a reiteration of the past, the staging seas as being most appropriate for the city and the the part of the
7:21 pm
city is already on garza residents who lost their homes in the 2014 garza war have been protesting in front of the un relief agencies office. the monday compensation of the homes to be rebuilt, a process which is ever seen by the human agency. 17000 homes were destroyed in the war and 2200 palestinians were killed. heavy rains of drench parts of thailand popular tourist town of 2 cat, the ty navy has been assisting the little forties who are working to put water from flooded streets. rescues helped carry elderly and bedridden patients out of the flooded area intensity and frequency of weather disasters. is costing us billions of dollars each year. a report by the non profit group climate central shows that there's been an acceleration and the number of destructed stones in the last 4 decades in the 1980s. these happened at an average rate of once every $82.00 days.
7:22 pm
now the pace had increased by the 2010s, with an average of $26.00 days between events. but in the earth from 2017 to 21. there was an average of 18 days between extreme weather events, less time between disasters can mean few resources to respond, recover, and prepare for future stoles. the increasing incidence of natural disasters in the u. s. has made it harder for some people in areas to afford insurance all to get any insurance. tall. rob rentals has more from los angeles, bigger floods, hotter fires, more powerful storms. the impact of global warming is devastating to so many people . what happens? i mean it's bad now the 1st time we had insurance this timely down, but well, maggie, we always they with god, se up. so disasters are also costly to insurance companies. they have responded by raising rates at an average of more than 12 percent compared to
7:23 pm
a year ago. 2021 saw $20000000000.00 natural disasters. so that has had a huge impact on our insurance company's ability to pay our claims. insurance companies in the us, our profit driven and often lightly regulated on a state by state basis, after disasters, they are often quick to raise rates even while raking in handsome profits. if you hear them tell it, you know, when they were before a legislative committee or a government agency or in the media, oh this we're broke, we're, we're, we've, we've, we've been losing money for 10 years. that is one of the biggest lies that the insurance industry likes to tell people they never lose money. take flood insurance as an example. private insurance companies don't provide it. the federal government does have a flood insurance program, but it isn't cheap. i don't have flood insurance, they just said 6 months ago. we are in
7:24 pm
a floodplain and said you should get it. well, it was quite a bit of money. homeowner policies generally cover fires, but some companies try to get around honoring claims in full. for example, by treating smoke damage is separate from fire and severely limiting compensation for it. the minute they have to write a check to us to pay a claim we made. there are that money is gone for them, so their incentive is completely to hang on to our premiums. companies also simply cancel homeowner policies and refuse to ensure people living in at risk areas like wildfire zones. but it's going to, we bought a home owners in a tough spot down the road because we'll have to figure out what to do next, where to move to the, the kind of up end their lives, the insurance industry and it's pushed for profits could drive big changes in where people are able to live. for example, here on the ocean front, which is subject to rising sea levels and storms,
7:25 pm
global warming isn't going away. but for many people who aren't millionaires, insurance coverage may be rapidly getting out of reach. rob reynolds al jazeera los angeles, though, just 2 weeks to go until brazil's presidential runoff law opposition candler. the silva is taken his campaign to voters in a stronghold of president tribal sanara. he has promised to bring change to people . living in rio de janeiro is poor neighborhoods as louisiana kiev reports. ah, we're really sorry for these voters in rio de janeiro, a presidential candidate campaigning in a place dominated by drug traffickers and violence. just 4 months ago, 20 people were killed during a police read here in the complex with alamo. a sprawling brick and cement network of fabulous were slums, left as former leader we the national lula, the silver promised that their lives will change as they hand during his last
7:26 pm

7:27 pm
international attraction, voters here are looking back at more prosperous times when money was being invested in these communities. i head of the 2016 olympic gaines. 50000 torres seems to come to this by vella every week. and they would buy arts and crafts and little stores here. they would go to parties, there were bars, there were restaurants, there were even hotels to stay over night. now, all of that is long gone. gone off, i me the can v victory minimum people felt abandoned the money dried out of violence. his back corruption scandals made many loose faith and politicians will have to the point that they voted for both scenarios. who says he'll fight violence with more violence. instead of investing in education, loudy on a soda was one of the disillusion. she had opened a bar to cater to tourists, but was forced to shut it down there. bayshore it is. they closed the cable car from one day to the next. nobody comes here any more. she says she'll vote for lula

7:29 pm
maintains the premier house or from the batches. if we had waited for the government to bring power to my home, i will still be whitting to day and living in the dark. and yet, a short distance away off the coast are large untapped reserves of natural gas. they could light up the entire village. but with the signing of the 2015 paris agreement, most countries agreed to stop the use of fossil fuels setting. our president believes that's unjust climate, just as he says is the right to use his country's resources and burned the pudding, fossil fuel, in order to bring power to his people from an absolute law normal. it's not normal or fair or to ask own countries of which half the population does not yet have access to electricity demand. to ask those countries to abandon traditional energy resources and switch to renewable energy. it's not
7:30 pm
acceptable. while synagogue continues to mostly rely on heavy fuel in diesel powered plants and it has some of the largest solar farms in west africa, thanks to german and french investors. after the 2015 paris agreement, bringing power to senegal into other sun drenched african countries meant investing in this green energy. but since the russia ukraine war, it seems that priorities have shifted both for african and european countries. europe can no longer rely on russian gas. germany and france are now looking to africa, including senate goals, gas reserves, to meet their power needs. the fear of a looming energy crisis means some countries appear to be turning their back on the paris agreement. now, senegal is under pressure to provide fossil fuel energy to europeans while it's people.
