3:02 am

3:04 am
their commitments saying that in the fight against climate change there is no time to waste warning hello everyone good morning everybody i linked in for day 2 of the virtual climate summit the 1st day saw national targets for limits on emissions now topping the agenda innovation u.s. president joe biden playing up the economic advantages of fighting global warming. it's an opportunity to create millions of good paying jobs around the world in innovation and innovative sectors you know jobs of bring greater quality. greater degree of the people performing those jobs in every nation button says workers in traditional energy sectors must be offered new opportunities the u.s. wants to take the lead in developing green technologies stepping up the pace of
3:05 am
research and making more use of public and private investment and using just today's technologies won't allow us to meet army bases goals we need new 0 carbon products that are just as affordable that how what i call a green premium aabs erode. thank you prime minister benjamin netanyahu announced israel would freeze out cold by 2025 but experts say existing targets and schedules won't be enough to count global warming greed 1.5 percent my colleagues and me so it's gonna has been following the summit from washington so me and joe biden set out some very ambitious plans for us greenhouse emissions he wants to slash them in half by 2030 could these goals be too ambitious perhaps well that is so my question a lot of people are asking here in the coal and as you said the by the
3:06 am
administration has set itself this is an ambitious agenda and if you talk to climate analysts here they say that this really shows that the u.s. is heading in the right direction but there is a lot of skepticism that you're referring to whether this goal is really achievable and we also don't know what the road map is how the u.s. is planning to get to this 50 percent cut and president biden until now has been pretty light on the details i mean we heard him say that it's going to involve a lot of investment in renewable energy cutting fossil fuels and really overhauling the transportation sector so electrification of vehicles but at the end of the days we have to keep in mind nicole that this is a non-binding commitment there is a lot of opposition among republicans in congress he would have to also get a lot of big business and industry on board so yes the u.s. is aiming higher than it ever has but it's going to be very tough to get there the pair is agreement established clear goals on climate change what did joe biden announce this week. well there's not much new to call this really was
3:07 am
a lot about symbolism about showing that america is back and it wants to lead on climate change and to restore trust among our allies but really the by the restriction i think was hoping for more concrete commitments than it actually got so you know we only saw 2 countries pledge new targets on emissions that was canada and japan a lot of people were looking to see what china would do china's the world's biggest polluter and she basically reiterated what the country had already planned which is to get to net 0 by 2060 and to strictly control coal power but again there was nothing concrete there india as well didn't promise anything new so there is some disappointment perhaps that there wasn't any and the new pledges that the buy demonstration of and looking for but we know that joe biden will be heading to the u.k. in brussels in june we found that out on friday and he's really going be focusing on strengthening alliances so i think we can expect that climate change is going to be very high on the agenda there joe biden says he sees huge opportunities in
3:08 am
developing green technologies but do u.s. companies agree with them there well you know joe biden has made the argument that this is going to be crucial to make a clean energy sector that is competitive with the rest of the world but there is as i said a lot of pushback republicans here say this is going to kill the economy this is going to see millions of jobs lost that being said i think it's important to point out that earlier this week the biggest coal mining union said it would back president biden's plan as long as those jobs are replaced the people essentially are not displace so there is a feeling among the biden ministration among officials there that there is more momentum behind this plan and there is optimism that at least he will be able to convince some people in the economy that this is the right way forward to building a correspondence and we so much kind of thank you very much. so you can look now at some other stories making headlines around the world at this hour u.s.

3:11 am
announcement to officially recognize the armenian genocide we'll find out in a matter of hours if he does and if he follows through on that it would also mark the fulfillment of a campaign promise made by biden the candidate on the trail campaign trail as the one year ago today but this is a highly contentious issue right turkey categorically rejects the term genocide and what could this do to you. usar accumulations well we got an idea of that back in 2019 when the u.s. congress although not the president passed the resolution to recognize the armenian genocide and that triggered a diplomatic spat with turkey turkey later went ahead and completed a major deal with russia to buy are you a missile defense system instead of using a u.s. one and turkey is again warning that relations could sour if biden goes ahead and makes this announcement but it does appear if the reports are correct that biden is willing to take that gamble here's a symbolic an ounce mint that could be awaiting us there tomorrow but what would
3:12 am
actually change if biden did recognize the armenian genocide as such well it would basically be another of the major series of major policy announcements the bottom has been making as he sees to reset relations between us and the rest of the world following the trump years and it does seem that this issue is quite important to biden personally here's what he said a year ago he said we must never forget or remain silent about this horrific and systemic campaign of extermination if we do not fully acknowledge commemorate and teach our children about genocide there would never again lose their meaning now recognizing the armenian genocide would be largely symbolic in terms of international relations but it would also appear that it's going to be important to biden as he tries to shape his legacy. will be waiting to see what binds us and thank you very much. chad has held a state funeral for a long time ruler interest in b. he died on tuesday after battling rebel forces president de vere old the central
