concrete solutions. and. this is deja vu news live from berlin a surprise announcement from qatar the gulf state is withdrawing from the opec oil cartel effective january first of next year has been a member of the organization for nearly six decades so what's behind the move also coming up. at a crucial conference in poland the u.n. secretary general says the world is not moving fast enough to prevent catastrophic
climate change he says the efforts so far are quote way off course. and two months after a failed launch another russian made soyuz rocket is preparing to blast off shortly for the international space station. they ass and also will be aboard say they are confident despite the risks. i'm brian thomas a very warm welcome to the show qatar is leaving opec the organization of petroleum exporting countries this move comes ahead of opec's annual meeting in vienna on thursday where it's certain to be the focus of discussions. energy minister says the country will exit the cartel effect in january first reflecting plans to focus more on liquid gas production rather. them or oil now this follows
a bitter diplomatic dispute with opec's fourteen other members especially with saudi arabia for the past eighteen months they've placed economic sanctions on qatar. mark jones from business is here with more monica good morning morning this is not a first for opec is it that a member is leaving now it's happened before it was ecuador and gabble on but they returned and indonesia suspended its membership it's not the first time but it's the first time that a middle eastern country is leaving opac and not just a middle eastern country but the first one to join opaque after it was formed in one thousand nine hundred sixty the founding nations of course iran iraq kuwait saudi arabia and then it's so ala so in terms of culture and history this is quite a significant step but we also know of course that qatar for for quite some time now has had strained relations with saudi arabia which is the defense to leader of
opec. and its announcement to leave comes a year after saudi arabia together with some of the gulf states to sort of sanctions qatar accusing it of harboring terrorism and it comes just days ahead of a crucial opec meeting in vienna which overshadows that meeting which tries to show unity as the cartel is fighting sliding oil prices so there's very much political elements to what carter saying is an economic decision though even though. its relationship with saudi arabia has nothing to do with it economically however yes this is a very interesting move i mean for one qatar is only the elevons biggest all producer of opec accounts for less than two percent of the overall output so qatar leaving opaque won't have a big impact on oil markets but qatar is the world's biggest exporter of liquid natural gas and it would it wants to expand to that market even more. together with
iran there again it gets very interesting iran not a friend of saudi arabia certainly not of the united states the united states however again a very big exporter also of l. and g. so you have competition there on the horizon and the price of ellen g. to today already dropped by about three percent ok so a lot of developments in this area of monica thanks for looking into this for us and health more later in the show ok thanks now for some of the other stories making the news today more anti-government protests taking place in france today ambulance workers have gathered close the national subway in central paris to complain about changes to working conditions senior politicians are holding crisis talks in the wake of violent anti-government protests that have been rocking runs. a far right party has won seats in an election in spain for the first time since the end of the franco military dictatorship in one hundred seventy five. the anti
immigrant vox party is said to enter and lucy is regional assembly the governing social secured the most seats but may lose control of the regional government after a center right party ruled out a coalition with the. the un secretary general says the world is quote way off course in the fight against climate change and twenty guitars was speaking from the polish city of kind of deja where the most important talks on global warming in the years are now underway the conference officially opened today terrorist told delegates that mankind must drastically reduce its greenhouse gas emissions to avert runaway global warming for the next two weeks the delegates will be discussing how to implement the two thousand and fifteen paris agreement while the u.n. secretary general opened the conference with an urgent warning we are in deep trouble with climate change climate change is running faster than we are. i mean
much sooner rather than be forty two years too late for many people regions even countries this is already a matter of life or death and this meeting is the most important gathering on climate change since the paris agreement was signed if these are true overstates the urgency of our situation a matter of life where death correspondent irene done his research at the kind of beauty conference for as i read is this the make or break session for action on climate change that so many are calling it indeed this meeting is essential for climate action not that global level so a few years ago climate leaders agri on keeping global warming under to think about . but this year they have to decide how they will actually achieve that goal the
result of these new things should be the so-called rule book i set the guidelines so in countries how they should monitor their house gas emissions how to report on third time and effort but another important topic will be climate finance because industrialised countries pledged to look a one hundred billion us dollars per year to help poorer countries cope with climate change but it remains unknown how they will actually manage to look at that money in the run up to this conference a number of studies were released indicating a critical point is about to be reached when it comes to greenhouse gas emissions can you fill us in where are we right now. well the situation doesn't look very well right now just recently the united nations environment program published a report saying that there is a huge gap between where we should be and where we are actually in regard of c o two emissions so we should actually efforts if we want to reach that by recycling
and goals by twenty thirty five otherwise we may end up having three point two degrees above by the end of the century so you know president trump has of course pulled out of the paris accords is taking united states out without the u.s. is it even possible for the world to meet the c o two reduction goals that have been laid down in the paris accord. but it's important to remember that this by trying. of pulling out from the parties have agreement these one take one really happened until twenty twenty twenty twenty things may have changed on the other hand other countries are increasing their climate i'm vision as well as local actors on the civil society the civil society isn't giving us and they will take in their fight that gets climate change so i think around here we can feel the optimism that we are still on track to reach the paris agreement
