1:13 am
official literature that the saudi military forces read there's a lot of reporting about the what you would call a blind spot that's specific to the trumpet ministration but if you look back every administration has pretty much approached the saudi regime the same way there was very little pressure on them to change what they do on the ground in terms of basic human rights in terms of the incitement that i mention in their textbooks in their defense establishment which u.s. officials have known about this incitement in the military establishment for years . swiss tennis star roger federer has found himself in a climate change bad books of teenage activist group that's that soft she criticized his association with the bank credit suisse the financial institutions been investing big in the new search for a new fossil fuels fossil deposits with more on how you can sharings become a crucial part of modern reality he is trying to. do you know gratitude by her role as the world's number one green activist or the number one shaming master well

that is utterly incompatible with climate action roger federer do you endorse this and so roger federer sponsorship deal with the swiss lender was back in the news and the sports all round mr nice guy had to reassure the public he cares for the environment over that mighty grow i'll show you more of how her shaming powers stretch far beyond the famous un walls but it's just that for now not everyone's so sure that anyone who deals with banks which give loans to non green industries should be publicly shamed public shaming and taking the right people to have stare an opinion away i think that's sort of stops is being human describes so but it doesn't make it so you want to see it the way he thinks he's allowed to it's a free will say meaning activism to little well together yes but it can be a discussion that's hard to say well maybe we should celebrities should be
1:16 am
a bit more careful in picking this ponces ecological issues should people people's attention but not by publicly shaming an individual however it seems neither gratitude nor her fellow activists have any intention of scaling some of that shaming down yeah why do it if it works so well so what can you be shamed for nowadays stay away from anything that has to do with fossil fuels even if you're choosing a bank shame on you if you fly never heard that was a sin well run has been peddling the flight shame movement on line for a while now. why can't you stop flying on planes it's easy. how about you stay home and take some climate action instead climate compensation he's the planting of trees enough to excuse your flights while some folks of already tried to paralyze a london airport the world's aviation authorities even trying to stand up for its
