at the emmys crowned the winner of the breast drama we have a look at the winds and the upsets of t.v.'s big night. live a very warm welcome to you i'm on the. world leaders are gathering today in new york for an emergency climate summit ahead of the general assembly with starts and tuesday the u.n. is calling it a race to limit climate change risk the world it says can win but for those living on the front line for example in the arctic circle there's a greater urgency the new region archipelago of salvado is home to the wild northernmost town people they're experiencing various consequences of climate change firsthand residents say some lives have already been lost.
4:02 pm
in the cracking sound of the carving place yet it was never unusual here in style about what is unusual is the frequency with which you hear it nowadays scientists say air and sea temperatures have risen significantly in the last 3 decades and it's changing the entire archipelago. we are losing the small bug we know we are losing the arctic as we know it because of climate change the earth's temperature over seas risen by almost total degrees in the past 30 years the ocean is warmer. there is no sea ice on the fjords any more here on the west coast. that's not an isolated development sea ice cover on the arctic has shrunk to almost half its size and less than 40 years. in the nearby town of long a 1000000000 people say they can see their highest changing and they no longer feel

safe. the summer of 2015. child died. there was a whole apartment complex that was caught in an avalanche and there's like 50 apartments getting crushed. but it was the middle of the night and nobody knew was coming. since then landslides and avalanches have become more common leading the local vicar to paint a doomsday scenario because of climate change and the different fact makes through the soil the ground some of the grace we see behind us might actually end up sliding into the road a little valley. or the next thing we can see if they might all be covered in the next big landslide coming down from the hill after just one by a couple of feet last part. it's a grisly prospect and still a way off in the future but this reason to worry about the here and now roshan is
4:04 pm
eating away at the coastline forcing some to pack up and move here so that's one 3rd nice slopes towards the cold one day. 13 you just disappear just. one event and that's when we decided we have to move the cabin. and many others and spelled out are hoping world leaders will act fast to limit the effects of climate change else they fear their home in the arctic won't survive. the deadly chorus for an icelander phenomenon is in new york and she joins me now from their dogs under thievin the small law we know which in town we just saw want to see decisive action but this is only a one day summit at the u.n. on climate change what results can be expect. when you listen to u.n. secretary general antonio good terrorists he is very optimistic that the nations
4:05 pm
invited to this summit are going to ratchet up their own for efforts to come but climate change and that this summit is able will be able to secure more ambitious commitments to curb. greenhouse gas emissions that those made in 2015 when the paris climate agreement was signed and all eyes will be here on china and india we have to say the chinese have made quite moderate commitments promises so far so experts except that expect that they may move even more quickly in the future and india is also expected to make a major announcement here but of course you're right it will it will be a one day summit and there is one person that is going to be absent from this summit and that is donald trump and the u.s.
4:06 pm
government that's right because a number of other leaders are speaking and laying out the country's climate protection plans but as you mentioned donald trump will be conspicuous by his absence why is he not turning up. so he said he is today that his absence for this summit is not meant as a snub but of course it is very telling that is tad of participating in this climate action summit he is hosting his own hastily organized event here focusing on religious freedom this has been a very important topic for the administration we have to say climate change not so much instead the u.s. government has focused on trying to really regular lation in terms of allowing companies to step over different environmental
4:07 pm
regulations so he is not going to participate in this summit and i think what we can expect is that you and secretary general is going to expect the europeans to take the lead here germany's chancellor angela merkel is going to be among the 1st speakers at this summit and he she is expected certainly to introduce the climate package to new measures that her government agreed on last week and alexander climate activists greater tune but will also be addressing the u.n. assembly she was treated like a rock star by her young supporters when she also got a sympathetic reception from the audience at the u.n. . i think so because in the meantime meantime he has she has become sort of a very prominent figure here he she has been invited to speak at this summit and we
4:08 pm
also have to mention that there will be young climate activists in the audience so i think there will make sure that she's going to get a very warm reception. and it's on a phenomenon at the u.n. climate assembly in new york thank you very much for that update from there. on the us oldest child whose company thomas cook has collapsed after failing to secure a last minute bailout more than half a 1000000 people worldwide a country traveling with the group britain civil aviation authorities beginning an operation to bring home some 150000 british customers stranded abroad british tourists are stuck on the spanish island of my yorka have been airing their frustration. nightmares they mistrust. not wanted really full bore holes. what can you do we want to show you the news to train to
4:09 pm
what's happening. to know what has fallen does no one has emailed the sata planes or you just one more thought i. thought you were flying let's just hear we now are . not so sure this place our content or something all sound like you know happy to receive it and put misako to london to do the obvious correspondent seana thoughts shots and lots of uncertainty in exile and he as we heard how the hundreds of thousands of people who are stranded going to get a woman who's going to pay for that. well essentially the british government is going to pay for that they have chartered hundreds of flights around the world from as far as malaysia to get those travelers back home to the u.k. we know that planes will pick them up at some point on the advice there from the aviation authority is sit tight and joy your holiday and a plane will come to pick you up at some point check the website at the thomas cook
4:10 pm
website and they will let you know but of course there is also a much bigger story that is hundreds of thousands that have booked holidays with thomas cook that are coming out that are now not going to be able to take part and those are they going to be reimbursed some are of course and $20000.00 employees globally are losing or have lost their jobs last night with this bankruptcy for example those employees in the shop behind me this shop of course remains closed it's one of 600 shops that are still on high street in the u.k. and those will remain closed until the thomas cook c.e.o. peter fine counsel has also made a statement 1st let's have a listen to what he had to say i would like to say. to all our customers those who i don't wholly though even us. but those who have poked with us in the coming months it is deeply distressing to me that they tell us no to be impossible
4:11 pm
to say full of the most loft rise in travel. social of the day was that was a thomas cook c.e.o. expressing his regret now why didn't his company get the financial lifeline it was disparate to seeking. well it was quite an emotional statement from the c.e.o. and i think this news has hit the u.k. quite hard we know it's the oldest travel agency one of the world's largest so the news really has hit the u.k. and everybody basically in the u.k. has at some point traveled with thomas cocoa know somebody who has traveled with thomas cook so why the question did the u.k. government not to save the company basically they did the numbers and they said it wasn't profitable at all thomas cook has been in debt 1700000000 and when the u.k. government crunched the numbers they figured that it wouldn't be profitable in the
4:12 pm
long term that there was systemic problems and that it just wouldn't be worth saving and short the question which also needs to be did briggs it really ruin all of this. well it played at least some pod i think of the u.k. government not saving thomas cook for example they didn't also want to set a precedent there are many companies at the moment currently with the uncertainty of breck's that and the u.k. struggling and the u.k. government didn't want to say for comment thomas cook and set the precedent for other companies but on the other hand thomas cook struggled also because of breck's and because of that uncertainty a lot of travelers in the u.k. decided to cancel plans to travel abroad and that is why they have less bookings so that has certainly been one of the issues shown a bounce on the collapse of thomas koch thank you very much. this article look at
