"i want you to panic, and i want you to feel the fear that i feel every day." i think that kind of speech, made by a person on a global arena, puts stress and puts it — it emphasises the issue on a global stage. mohammed lost two of his and i think because of that, throughout the year, brothers in the blaze. we have seen more people talking about eco—anxiety translation: my elder in the public discourse. brother called me and said, that said, i think eco—anxiety save me, the fire is a really big. as a term is a concept that is being talked about by people so there is no hope to survive. there are many of us who are aware of it already, but then also other people who have and we are all stuck inside. the country's prime minister narendra modi described the fire as extremely horrific not heard about it before. and expressed his condolences to the families now, you could be forgiven of the victims. for thinking this isjust a banana stuck to a wall. in fact it's a piece of work this is one of the worst fire by the italian artist incidents in delhi in recent times. maurizio cattelan which on friday but they happen regularly sold for more than $118,000. it was being exhibited at a gallery across the country. in miami up until last night when — many buildings lack properfire exits and illegal construction is rampant. as simonjones reports — the cause of the fire is uncertain

the fire is burning about an hour north of sydney, bringing toxic smoke and ash falling from the sky. the fire season has hit harder and earlier than previous years due to climate change since the crisis began in september, six people have been killed. more than 700 homes destroyed and an estimated 2—million hectares scorched. firefighters are bracing for more high temperatures and strong winds this week, a dangerous combination, likely to make the situation much worse. courtney bembridge, bbc news. northern ethiopia lies in one of the semi—arid regions which it's feared will bear some of the worst effects of climate change. the land there has lost most of its trees, making it vulnerable to longer droughts and intense bursts of rain. but now the people there have restored wooodland to 1.5 million hectares — capturing c02 and boosting food production in the process. for the last in our series climate defenders, alongside the major un climate conference, justin rowlatt travelled to tigray province to meet a woman at the centre of the restoration.
1:08 am
there is a stark beauty here. 100 years ago, trees covered a third of ethiopia — now it is less than 5%. and without trees, there is nothing to protect the soil from drought, wind, and bursts of rain, which all become more intense with climate change. when the soil goes, very little grows. but people are breaking this vicious circle. this one is the african olive. an african olive? does it bear fruit? does it grow olives? yes, it does grow olives, they are much smaller than the... sarah tewolde—berhan is an expert at restoring degraded land. this is her tree nursery at mekelle university in northern ethiopia. 30 or a0 years ago, some data shows that droughts were occurring every ten years. now they're every five years. so we need to prepare as a society, as a community, to be able to function even in drought years, and one of the best ways to do that is to restore environments and in restored environments we can
1:09 am
capture every little drop of rain that comes. what sarah and the communities she works with have achieved, is really impressive. you can see it very vividly on this experimental site on the outskirts of mekelle university. this is degraded land, it's been used as farmland fairly recently. virtually no vegetation. but take a look on the other side of the fence, and already after just a few years it has begun to regrow. you can see shrubs, you can see trees, it is greener and it's way, way lusher. give it a couple of decades and the results are even more impressive. here's how it works. people and animals are kept out to allow natural regrowth. the trees help keep moisture in the soil, recharging rivers and springs.
1:10 am
it may seem very trivial to people who live in wet environments, that spring has come back, but for people who live in a dry environment, a spring that was around 100 or 200 years ago, is now coming back and giving water. it's highly significant. and this re—greening is happening on a vast scale. in this one province in northern ethiopia they have reforested 15,000 square kilometres. there are more rains because we are protecting more land. there is more moisture in the soil because we are protecting the land. they do know it. they do notice, they do see it. worldwide, we are still losing an area of forest the size of the uk every single year, but the re—greening effort here in ethiopia is a lesson on what can be done. evidence that, when people work together, we can build resilience to our changing climate. justin rowlatt, bbc news, ethiopia.

this is newsday on the bbc. i'm rico hizon in singapore. i'm kasia madeira in london. our top stories: —— i'm samantha simmonds. police in india have arrested the owner of a building in delhi which caught fire killing at least 43 people. the fbi says it is treating friday's deadly attack on a florida navy base as a presumed terrorist attack and are trying to determine if the gunman acted alone or had connections to a group. let's take a look at some front pages from around the world. the new york times is reporting that the processing of foreign electronic waste is on the increase in thailand. new companies are opening across the country,

and arrested 11 people. russia is facing a 4—year ban on competing in all major sports and hosting major international events after failing to comply with the demands of the world anti—doping agency. they've recommended the sanctions after concluding that russian officials were responsible for tampering with drug test data they handed to investigators earlier this year. the sanctions need to be approved by wada's executive committee on monday. 0ur moscow correspondent sarah rainsford reports. these are nervous times in russian sport, professional athletes training hard but not sure of what is ahead. anna has won multiple medals for her country, but russia is now sliding towards a four—year ban from global sport, the latest twist
1:16 am
in the doping scandal. i practice hard, and still i am training. and i am just going to focus on this, because that is the area that i can control. the scandal began with the 2014 sochi 0lympics. for russia, for president putin, the games were a display of strength, superiority. but the proud party ended in a huge hangover. yury ganus was part of the clean—up act. under him, russia's anti—doping agency has been praised for a new zero—tolerance approach. but, to return fully to the sporting fold, russia had to hand over a database of athletes‘ test results. thousands of entries were deleted. yes. thousands? thousands, thousands. now, russian athletes face greater sanctions.
1:17 am
yury has come under pressure for speaking out, but he insists those officials responsible for this crisis should be removed. this is a real old—school situation. it is impossible to continue using in the future, because today we live in a tragic time in russia, in sports in russia. you still hear people here claiming this is all an anti—russian campaign, denying the evidence, as russia has in so many other cases. but there are also people who are amazed at their country's capacity for self—harm — that instead of moving on from this crisis and ending the isolation, russia has only made the situation even worse. this week, the sports ministry was busy promoting exercise for all, an active lifestyle. a ban on professional athletes would be a blow to a whole generation here.
1:18 am
when i tried asking the minister who was to blame for that, who altered the database, he refused repeatedly to answer. in politics, you can play with poker face. you can deny the undeniable thing. you can really do the bravado with your cynicism. you cannot do this in sports. you cannot do sports on your own. of course we can have the home 0lympics, with turkmenistan and with north korea, with belarus, but everyone will laugh at it. russian athletes have devoted their lives to much higher targets, and it is their sporting futures now at stake. millions of young people have taken part in school strikes for the climate this year, inspired by 16—year—old greta thunberg. the un says young people are key actors in raising awareness
1:19 am
and promoting sustainable lifestyles to tackle climate change. but psychologists say it's led to an increase in public anxiety around the issue known as "eco—stress" or "eco—anxiety. " schools and forums have started discussing how they can support young people as they seek to address climate concerns. for more, i spoke to nor lastrina hamid, co—founder singapore youth for climate action, who has recently attended one of these panel discussions. some of the eco—stress that we talked about during the panel discussion in october, it really varies. so the causes of eco—stress that people were talking about is this feeling of powerlessness, that individual actions were not enough to make strategic changes within systems. there was this feeling of fear, of environmental doom of what is to come, because of the changes in the climate. and basically, you know, things are changing, and we have to adapt fast. but are these responsibilities
