arctic is now opening up opportunities to more and more countries attracting even those not located in the region now due to its geographic location russia is among the countries with the biggest claims to the arctic like the loss of a ridge and the stockmen gas field russia has forty five percent of the arctic territory so it is fair that it actually also show that to the world it is really no tension between nations about the russians claim to the arctic ocean and seabed but there are no big dispute about where the border probably will go there is of course also denmark and greenland have rights to the central part of the arctic ocean and so do canada but that's between them according to the un though the see. no reason to believe that they shouldn't find a peaceful agreement moscow earlier said is now planning to revitalize an old soviet military base on the no was a good island showing the international community it is ready to protect its

6:11 am
you consider according to the latest estimates there's enough to supply the entire world for three years china with a growing energy demand and increasing gas girls in population is the unlikely contender in the race to secure a foothold in the el tick china has been wooing russia providing both snared and trans debt with a twenty five billion dollars to build an oil pipeline from siberia to china as well as paying ross nafta an additional sixty billion dollars to develop offshore fields in the arctic and china has also struck up a business relationship with iceland and as a result these tactics managed to secure a place on the arctic council for china along with the founding members the likes of norway and canada which of course have a geographical right to the area. and i can see president all of her grandson

which has always been fighting to prevent any kind of ecological catastrophes have tried to in danger have tried to threaten the security of the oil rig and thus endanger the ago. logical situation in the entire region of course the investigation is still ongoing but we already heard from the head of the russian investigative committee that if these activists will be found guilty that they will face criminal prosecution regardless of their nationality as i would remind that around thirty activists are believed to be on board there and six of them are believed to be citizens of the united kingdom and it was the reaction we're seeing from greenpeace that greenpeace are staunchly denying any kind of accusations saying that they were embarking on a peaceful protest against drilling in the northern sea not any kind of illegal activities something of course the russian investigators are not buying at the moment but we do know that the arctic sunrise vessel has been told to the bay of the seven or more scsi in the north of russia i believe you'll be able to see live

6:18 am
breaching the legal limit set out by the e.u. for years. that a thousand deaths are attributed to pollution annually people look at the air today an issue it's clean but unfortunately it's still very dangerous. air pollution today is completely invisible but the reason for this is it's very small microscopic particles and that's also the reason that they're so damaging to your health because they can travel deep inside of this system and it's london as car travel that's largely responsible for it cars and lorries emit an invisible gas called my trojan dioxide known as the silent killer its effects on noticeable it can cause or spiritual disease reduce lung function and according to the world health organization even trigger lung cancer the biggest single source of much in dog so i just talked to guys in london are actually these red buses going cause we're also very concerned about diesel vehicles diesel vehicles are responsible

6:20 am
the choices are extremely difficult and electorally not very popular it basically means taking diesel vehicles off the road in the in the very foreseeable future you can imagine that's not a vote where i have to deal with the city as it is and not some crazy green gone in which we all sit around. and a movie and enabling drugs in the present is that is not going to that is not going to happen since it's not going to happen campaign as a write in london is to each do their bit to make the air in the city cleaner by shining their cars and paddling around town instead while avoiding the most polluted routes of course but it's not clear how much difference it will make since the government itself admits that london will remain dangerously polluted until at least the year twenty twenty five. london.
