leaders at a un summit to stop making excuses to avoid taking action on climate change. her speech coincided with her being named time magazine's person of the year. here's our science editor, david shukman. to ms greta thunberg. applause a global celebrity at the age of 16, greta thunberg was here to energise the talks. not with emotion, but instead with a calm reminder to world leaders that the latest facts about rising temperatures and melting ice. how do you react to these numbers without feeling at least some level of panic? how do you respond to the fact that basically nothing is being done about this without feeling the slightest bit of anger? she was speaking as the negotiations seemed to be in slow motion, dragging on over technical details. while the gases heating the planet
are blasted into the air at every are blasted into the air in ever greater quantities, with many countries accused of using loopholes to wriggle out of plans to cut their emissions. i still believe that the biggest danger is not inaction, the real danger is when politicians and ceos are making it look like real action is happening when, in fact, almost nothing is being done apart from clever accounting and creative pr. applause there was applause for greta thunberg here in the great hall, but quite striking is that a lot of the seats were pretty empty. not every national delegation was here to listen to her message. greta has inspired a movement that is losing patience. young protesters took over the hall to demand faster action. what matters is whether anybody is listening.
david shukman, bbc news, madrid. the naturalist and broadcaster, david bellamy, has died. he was 86. there is nothing like a good drying day to put the spring back into your polyester so the next time you stand amongst your smallest bear in mind the process of evaporation. his enthusiasm for the natural world, in programmes like bellamy‘s backyard safari, made him a regular on tv in the 1980s. a formerfactory worker and a plumber, he was a natural broadcaster, though in later life he attracted criticism for dismissing global warming, describing it as "poppycock," a stance which he said, cost him his tv career. his colleagues at the conservation foundation, which he co—founded, described him as a "larger—than—life character" who "inspired a whole generation". back to the election and all eyes tomorrow will be on those key marginal constituencies that could determine the final result. places like watford, where in 2017 the conservatives won
byjust over 2,000 votes. 0ur deputy political editor, john pienaar, reports from the battle ground town. hello, children. it's time to believe, or try to. how are you? believing comes easily to some. the rest of us are promised billions for the nhs and schools, thousands more police. everyone knows what they want. i want to see more police on the streets and more money put into the national health service. so more for everyone? more for everybody, yes. but who to believe? the marginal seat of watford stayed tory through years of austerity. now the parties are poles apart. many say they haven't decided or won't vote. most will. i'm voting conservative. why? we have to look after our national health service. it's so precious. labour say they'll put money in. but they all say these things, don't they? you just have to go with what you believe. i'm voting labour because ijust want the tories out, really. i think they're running public services into the ground,
and ijust don't agree with anything they do or say. but if this election‘s about giveaways and retail offers, the battle‘s over which party's offer looks most tempting, who's most trusted. the voters' choice will reshape britain, and maybe the biggest reason for that is the b word. tired. who isn't this week, or worse? knackered. this election has felt tough on everyone, and brexit outweighs almost every other issue. for me, it's brexit, mainly because we can stand on our own two feet. we're more than capable of standing on our own two feet. we don't need people in brussels to tell us what we can and can't do, making laws that we have to adhere to. leave, remain, why? remain, the reasons being that it would be more beneficial for our country in terms ofjobs, the way people feel, obviously the unity between everybody as well. as for who to follow, some who've covered miles campaigning for labour don't
likejeremy corbyn. many are asking themselves, is boris johnson truly fit to bear the burden of office? # have yourself a merry little christmas. ..# tis the season of goodwill, but polling day comes first. tough for this young music schoolteacher. it's my first time voting, so i will definitely be voting and i'll be giving my opinion, but i'm not sure which way i'm going to vote or who i'm going to vote for as i do think there are quite a few empty promises. # so have yourself... soon we'll be celebrating... christmas, not the election, most of us, even with the best will in the world. # now.# john pienaar, bbc news, watford. that's it. but before joining our news teams where you are — here are some of the sights and sounds of the election campaign,
as the uk goes to the polls. have a very good night. i can't wait to get out there. stop brexit. oven ready. it will be very different. why don't you look at it now, prime minister? so, no apology? the prime minister wouldn't show up. get rid of the roadblock! the worst christmas present ever. build a better future for scotland.
