3:32 pm
assembled with the help of a sesearch my hundred a and thirty countries. french president emmanuel macron spoke of the need to act. syllable moody doing this report tells us clearly that bio diverse city is a problem as serious as climate change. he couldn't approval we can only win this baffled by tackling both of these problems together. and reversing the trerend he was just in all of this set it on the house. moroccan speaking at a little earlier let's bring in now and say msa joins us from lancaster and that the northwest of england she is a specialist in the ecology lecture and a researcher that. that's at the university like us as a say in the northwestern with a place in a very well. thank you very much for joining us -- individual take on just how serious the current situation is. well i think the statistics interest port restrict ourselves and we are seeing.
3:33 pm
a enormous declines in long lines and and station iron actually chrysostom's. and yeah i'm big. the assessments -- paint classically picture i think because of the state of nature - today but it also shows and soo. pathways t to solutionss and soe of the things that we need to stop thinking right to make a difference. and these things are all due to human activity of and let me talk in terms of biodiversity and on these kind of words i think people. maybe find this a bit nebulous - the difficult to sort of grasp completely can i just bring it close to the home where you are for instance fracking is a big proboblem is that i'm that's obviously a man made problem. fracking. yeah -- well and i am definitely no express on tracking -- i'm i'm also known nexon of trucking in in the in this particular region but yeah that's the idea i don't i have no idea what
3:34 pm
links right i rested y'all that but i think the point is that any. it's the exploitatation of our natural resources and and and the the change or land use change that we're seeing. as a result of human activities are cracking for example you you need to play a very large areas- it t to any kindd of any kind of mining local e extractions thins like natural gas and minerals -- and and then we'll see you doing damage to the ecosystems in our area -- and it it's not damage that land use change not ever exploitation that is is really feeling kind of scg loss. so eight eight these these kind of things we have to stop thinking about. how do we how do we -- maintaining -- our our our lifestyles ole ole our way of living. in a way that is also sustainable and doesn't destroy the planet. because we can't go back. to seventeen fifty for instance when the industrial revolution kicked off we can't go back to sort of pre seventeen fifty can we need to find another way of doing things is the thing.
3:35 pm
and how much is the onus on individuals rather than companies rather than governments. no i think i think i think we can do things on all levels so this -- the individual can take action are small things that each of us can do so. through our the choices we make how we how we live what we kissed you how much you can see how much waste we do u use -- there's kind of things can actuallyly make quite a big differencehehen everybody starts making small changes. but then -- obvbviously your businesses -- businesses and and governrnments. and even so the international bodies need to stop thinking in a slightly different way about how. are you know what is what is profitable it's not jusust ececomics we have to stop thinking right -- our well being in terms of nature and and and our natural resources -- and not just in financial terms so i think i think. there are different w ways of tracking these problems at at at
3:36 pm

3:45 pm
aggression that you buy that in the while the israeli ministry lilifted protective restrictions on residents close to the borde. well some israelis were pleased to see a return to camp. all this stuff to see spock was never. i think that a cease fire at this moment is a terrible mistake. i think that when we have the upper hand need once of roles to finish the terra. because this will only repeat itself. meanwhile in gaza some residents were skeptical over the agrereements like this man who lost his home. what it does god causes all? these troops will be the same as previous ones. each time at the truce lasts only for a week or two we are suffering from the fighting.. yes strikes targeget civilians they strike residential buildings and we are left with only the clothes we stand in russia can cause. over the weekend i israel's ministry targeted dozens of hamas targets that they said were concealed in homes or residential areas twenty three palestinians were killed and dozens injured.
3:46 pm
in the first such targeted killing in five yeyes israel killed a masss comommander it sd it strikes were e r response to hamas and islamic jihad firing several hundred rockets and mortars across the border since saturday. four israelis were killed by rockets from gaza for the first time since. twenty fourteen standards into mediawatch and james at joins us for r that and a good evening to you starting this -- more on these what kind of devastating predictions that made by the at the report on bio diversity. yes and this is about so much more than just climate changes about the effect that humanity has on every living creature and plans. on the planet at least the new york times has illustrated this perfectly. with an image of an olive ridley sea turtle add this photograph was taken in india back in january. and it's a common sight at title wrapped up in fishing nets and ropes and of course it is almost impossible for them to survive once they get caught in that
3:47 pm
kind of situation. at the fishing industry -- the to try just at least in the sea is one of the biggest threats faced bonnie -- seat models and this also talks about the dire threat ecosystems that people all over the world depend on for that survival. and really people are taking from this report -- the the spin if you like that this is going to affect human l life in the he perhaps the people will take it more seriously the guardian's headline human society on the urgent threat from loss of f. natural life. now they took as well about that one million species on the threat of extinction it's a difficult number to reading imagine what that means -- you could also say that one in ever. eight animals or plantss the you look out of the window and you see one in every eight things is going to be. made extinct unless we can make big changes and improve the situation i'm so it really is very dire warning head david throws you right size speeches nobody saunders says.
3:48 pm
