join us in the depths ah, or remain in the shallows. ah, ah, breaking use this hour, a whistle, blow a report, serious flaws and phases cobit vaccine testing procedures and says, u s. officials refused to listen. we've got the details and reaction and less than one minute. also ahead, despite joe biden branding us democracy, the envy of the world, the world increasingly disagrees. as a poll shows a sharp dive and global perceptions of american democracy as well as its health care system. we discussed the findings with a former us congressman, president putin pledges that russia will be carbon neutral, no later than 2016 in a message to delegates at the you and climate summit in scotland. and of the west pushes for action at cop $26.00. we look at how they're ambitious plans might hurt nations dependent on fossil fuel.
5:01 pm
ah, and good to happy with us is midnight here at moscow now wednesday, the 3rd of november, i'm calling bray with the world news from r t international. first, the breaking story we brought, you lost our whistleblowers, claiming that there was serious flaws with fighters cove vaccine trials. last year . she says she was fired the same day that she reported her findings that the u. s . authorities refusing to investigate. let's get more on this now from correspondent egos to all of his across this forest equal. what are the claims being made? well colon, 1st and foremost, i have to say that everything that we know about this story so far is from the mouth of this whistle blow. we have reached out to all sides, to the contractor to advisor, to the da they are still to get back to us. we will provide their opinion on this as soon as they get back to us. so here's the thing, the person working for one of the contract a firm. so one thing to one thing to understand about this whole thing,
5:02 pm
we're talking about phases 3 of the trials, which is arguably the most crucial phase and testing a vax thing. so fire them, they hired a number of firms contractors to do the testing for them. in total of the vaccine was tested on more than $40000.00 people. the number is around 44000. and the contractor in question that we are talking about right now was responsible for the trials on about 1000 people. so and they, according to the whistleblower, this contractor they have, well they have, they have been grossly negligent and to have been some serious violations that the whistleblower is alleging that took place during the trial. for example, the whistleblower is saying that participants were placed in a hallway and they did not receive port proper monitoring from the doctors after they received the job. so this is one thing and also the,
5:03 pm
the whistleblower. she also accused the company of, of, you know, slacking and of the lack of timely follow up on patients, including those patients. and those will try subjects that showed some severe symptoms. they are saying i'm calling it adverse events. this is what they're saying. so people who might have had some, you know, some well, a symptoms from some severe symptoms from getting the job. they will not monitor properly. also, protocol deviations were not being reported. vaccines were allegedly stored in were not stored at proper temperatures, which is very crucial because the, the price of vac, seen it has to be stored or the certain temperature not above a certain mock. and this is what, for example, makes transportation of this vaccine challenging. so this is important because it could have well branded vaccine not as effective or not safe. if that was the case, of course, also mislabeled the laboratory specimen. also also on the list of the allegations
5:04 pm
and all of that, the whistleblower, she made it known to the da and this is the reaction that she received. within hours, jackson received an email from the da, thanking her for her concerns and notifying her that the f. d. a could not comment on any investigation that might result. a few days later, jackson received a call from an f da inspector to discuss her report. but was told that no further information could be provided. she heard nothing further in relation to her report . so all of that happened in september last year. so before pfizer got the da's approval. so probably the whistleblower there took it as a while as an optimistic sign that the while the watchdog, the governmental body will look into this and take this seriously. but here's what happened one later in december that she had pfizer got the approval, have a lesson in flies as briefing. documents submitted to an f. d,
5:05 pm
a advisory committee meeting held on the 10th of december 2020 to discuss fires as application for emergency youth authorization. of its cove at night in vaccine. the company made no mention of problems at the vent, obvious site. the next day the sta issued the authorization of the vaccine. so there you go, all of this, we know not from i have from some tabloid that has a reputation or history of publishing, you know, will some how poorly poorly vetted facts and poorly vetted information. but rather from the british medical journal, which is a very respected of well science journal at this. and so they learned from the whistleblower herself and apparently she provided all sorts of information to this to this outlet. like, for example, email conversations, phone recordings, and so on and so forth. so all of that is right out the disposal of this scientific journal. so certainly this is something that the da and advisor will have to
5:06 pm
comment on right now, because obviously people, they want to know, they want to know what they're getting and of the best i see, i guess, would be listened to your doctor, listen to medical professionals don't get advice from, you know, some shady sources from, you know, facebook articles and so on. listen to doctors, listen to the scientists, listen to professionals if they are vaccines efficacy. that's a question here. here on is it, it's the big questions about how these individuals and companies and agencies acted in the interim. okay, we're going to talk about the repercussions in the 2nd. for now though, he goes down of thank you from reading university. now course the, the thing of this is, it's not to do is to do with the procedures, isn't it not the medicine itself. but could these revelations cast a shadow over the great work at pfizer and other companies have been doing and in such important vaccine research? yeah, for me, the biggest problem for potential problems with, with this article in the british medical journal,
5:07 pm
is that it will affects all could affect public confidence in the vaccines when really shouldn't. but so it's been put out there, it's out there, lab or cat is out of the back fact now. so inevitably, people will start asking questions, but i know people need to remember this vaccine has been given to millions of people around the world. shouldn't be effective in the same, but inevitably, some people will ask questions. yeah. is it much of a surprise there really? because although these are potential downsize need to be investigated fully, the fighter chairman, a chief executive did say, as i've said before, we're operating at the speed of science. i guess these kind of things were bound to happen in the rush to get a vaccine out there. will mistake to happen, i but it's important to, to, to acknowledge that when you know a mistake is happened, you report it new, acknowledge it and deal with it. the suggestion and it is nothing more. the suggestion here. we don't know that it's true, is that that hasn't been happening. happening is what we should have done,
5:08 pm
at least in one part of the will where, where the trials are taking place. does it surprise you that there was much silence from the food and drug administration in the u. s. over this all they won't comment or other people i don't think or not, not early on anyway. they will or should want to speak to pfizer about it. and perhaps also the, the contractor firm that did the research. so they'll, if they're going to investigate, if they think there's anything in it pulls, remember that, then they'll want to do their investigations 1st before they comment. is there anything in that that this was taking place during phase 3 of the trials? please correct me if i'm wrong. a phase one is testing whether it's safe for humans . phase 2 is the very limited test. with a few i have volunteers and phase 3 is when it's out in the general public, does it matter so much that it was in phase 3 that these problems were highlighted? well i guess it probably means that it was at
5:09 pm
a larger scale. i changed that phase 3 that they would have been in the others because you just have more participant, more participants. huh. but so i, you know, at any stage it would reflect badly on people concerned. i think we could do at least what lessons do you think there are then in terms of the oversight for vaccines, especially on something like that. presumably this a vaccines for any illness or disease need to have thorough oversight over them. but this has had so much of a priority what lessons either to be learned over that. i think he tells us that you have to be really careful to acknowledge that mistakes will happen, but to own up to them and deal with them when they do. because something like caveat 19 is going to generate awful lot of interest. but of course this could happen with any that said, not just relaxing. and what about in terms of trust among people taking the vaccines as, as we've spoken before, in order to get people to trust the vaccines. that's an uphill struggle and it can
5:10 pm
sometimes just a one sentence to wipe that away. yeah, i think that's potentially the biggest problem with this all to call this b. m j piece. huh. but so we'll see, people should remember that many, many millions of people around the world about this axis. and it's effective and it's safe and dated. save sir vaccines that all the ones that have been approved of saved millions of lighting, have countless people outside out of hospital. okay, doctor simon clock from reading university. thank you very much. you're welcome. next, america's reputation on a global scale is suffering with wide spread negative views of its democratic processes, as well as its health care system. that's according to a recent survey conducted across 17 developed countries. and as despite joe biden, describing us democracy as the envy of the world democracy, sometimes missy is sometimes requires a little patience as well, but that patience has been rewarded. now for more than 240 years, the system of government governance has been the envy of the world. so what does he
5:11 pm
know that the others don't? i talked about the survey results with long time us congressman ron pole. he describes us democracy as a reflection because it's the money that's really in charge. now. we have now as a corporate state, corporations are very, very powerful. they influence it. so it's not the people really voting. it's really the corporations that run things. so the corporations run medicine, they run the military industrial complex, they run all our schools now. so we're a long way off from what people think is democracy. know we're a long way off from freedom. we have now a reflection of democracy because the people with a lot of money and control the monetary system, the republicans are very much involved in this problem. i describe that if you get 51 percent voting then you can turn it into a welfare state and then you can turn it into a corporate state and protect the big corporation. so the republicans endorsed that same principle, but when bob got in and what they're doing now,
5:12 pm
it's much worse because they continue it all the policies essentially were sensually wrong on this lockdown business and spending all this money and interfering with the practice of medicine. punishing people who wanted to have a debate on the care like we have for ever. so it's that that has made it much, much worse. and it's going to get much worse to if we don't release the freedom that the doctors need us climate. some it's got down to business in scotland with president putin endorsing rushes commitment to become a carbon neutral economy. no later than 2060 in support of global conservation acids. but this is alicia, having set the task of building a carbon neutral economy here no later than 2060 russia is also relying on the unique resources of our forest ecosystems and their significant potential for absorb and carbon dioxide and producing oxygen. what we'll do indeed,
5:13 pm
our country has about 20 percent of all the world's forest areas. nash's or india, which is one of the world's biggest polluters, has also set a target for becoming carbon neutral. the gear, though 2070, missing the summit goal by 2 decades. lidiam prime ministers also asked for more money to be dulled out to developing countries for their transition to clean energy . saskia taylor next looks at how complying with blood emission goals may not be that simple for nations heavily dependent on fossil fuels. 026. his hair and that's going to save us from doomsday. i've a 100 wild need as a setting out their goals for the future. and then big ones, stop deforestation switched to renewables. 0 emissions an ohio electric enough teaching nature like a toilet. we are digging our own grapes. humanity has long since run down the clock on climate change. it's one minute to midnight on that doomsday clock and
5:14 pm
we need to act. now. client change is already or avenue world. we only have a few for us to raise or envisioned to raised me to task. sounds great. the question is, who pay the biggest price for all these politicians patches? it's easy for both chad and co to promised to turn off the light when they leave a room. but for others half way round the world saying no to fossil fuels is a luxury. they just can't afford. if there is co will live. if there isn't any co would in not live one pass and east and india setup, but over 4000000 others all over the country would likely agree. because that's how many people rely on coal to keep a roof over their heads and food on that pace. the issue goes well beyond india, though, developing large a industrialization stage,
5:15 pm
then what we can call one space, our time. we don't that they will not be able to lift their societies out of poverty, coal consumption and coal as a basis for the livelihood will remain a fact for some time. in fact, tens of developing countries have come together terrified of what the grand goals of 0 emissions made up by rich nations will mean for them. this new goal, which has been advanced, runs counter to the parish agreement, and is until i equity and against climate just demands for net 0 emissions, for all countries by 2050 will exacerbate further the existing inequities between developed and developing countries. it's not just that developing nations struggle as it is with fossil fuels. it's not just that millions of jobs will be lost so that millions will be punched into poverty. now it's also that these nations are asking, why are we paying for greedy gonzalez? far away? the top 10 percent of countries consume 20 times more energy than the bottom 10
5:16 pm
percent, and 1100000000 sub saharan african share the same amount of power generation capacity. as germany's 83000000 people, video gamers and california consume more electricity than entire nations. you won't hear anything about that a call 20 sex. and remember when times were tough, winter was coming. a gas was running low in europe. funny how no one was shouting about being a dirty source of energy when they begged for the taps to be turned back on. but you will hear them say they won't finance fossil fuel projects in developing countries. why? because it's far away and won't affect whether that warm on a chilly december night. though if the budget can stretch, they might lend a helping hand to ease the pay. we want to do more to help countries round the world, especially developing countries accelerate their clean energy transition, address pollution in the sure the world we all my share,
5:17 pm
a cleaner shafer healthiest plan and we have an obligation to help make no mistake . this is not a judgment on green energy. the goals of those got that in glasgow are undoubtedly noble. but do the politicians so desperate to be seen as the leaders can save the planet, realize what back p. r. friendly slogans actually mean for millions of people. far away and even if they did what they do, anything differently, there are some countries are actually have a small population but are consuming a lot of energy and emerging a lot of our gap at a carbon. there is people chrissy all around in most of the rich countries. it's not clear that they are really going to lean themselves away from corn and i don't think that they are very realistic targets. they have not met the 2015 accord targets yet. so i think so there's a lot of bluffing going on here, and i don't read a lot of the, you know, the commitments, augi. i'm religious being made by rich countries with over 100 world laid as an
5:18 pm
attendance. the events also attracted droves of activists underlining the urgency for global conservation efforts. purchase premier boris johnson echoed that sentiment warning of a possible doomsday scenario. what americans, joe biden admitted, that it was ironic that despite his environmental agenda, he'd recently called for the oil producing cartel opec to increase production on the surface. it seems like an irony, but the truth of the matter is you've all known. every one knows that the idea we're going to be able to move to renewable energy overnight and not have and from this moment on, not used oil or not use gas or not use hydrogen, is just not rational. it is hypocritical, of course, of many of those who are supporting the agenda to have a net 0 policy to then say that we need to have the fossil fuel industry is just that politicians are not being honest with the people in the next 2 weeks as the negotiators remain in glasgow, they will come out with
5:19 pm
a communique that suggests that something positive has been achieved, trying to work. but my biggest fear is that they won't be a massive move from the paris accord as most people have wanted. and i think this will be a time when politicians have failed to achieve those big goals. the group representing britain state run hospitals and trusts is calling on the government to delay its mandatory coven vaccine policy for healthcare staff until next year. the head of an h. s. providers says that'll help the medical services get through the difficult winter period. otherwise he says the u. k. risks and accidents of unvaccinated workers and a deepening staff shortage. we've got a very, very difficult winter coming up. and we know the n h s is going to be a full stretch, so it makes sense to set that deadline. once that period has passed, if we lose very large numbers of m vaccinated staff, particularly over the winter period, then that also constitutes
5:20 pm
a risk to patient safety and quality of care. it comes as you k. paramedics raised fears of an unprecedented crisis facing the ambulance service with one local department last week, even pleading with the public to think twice before calling as the simply and enough people to cover the workload. the governments also put troops on stand by to help the n h. s. cope over the winter, and that could see them driving ambulances assisting with vaccines and providing other hospital support as well. meanwhile, the british health secretary has stressed the safety and effectiveness of inoculation, urging any one eligible to get their booster jap before winter one. dr. though told us that the vaccine issue is just one and a chair staffing problem. there are reasons why people may choose not to get to vaccine, not necessarily because they don't believe in the vaccine book that may do the personal religious reasons or the maybe that and personal health reasons. now we should allow individuals to have the flexibility to exercise their rights. it's
5:21 pm
a tricky one, isn't because as a health care professional, i want everybody to have the vaccine. but i understand this decision is personally working in the area just moment ease and exhausting. you get up early in the morning and you stay late until evening and you're not quite sure whether or not you're going to manage to work and continue to be safe. certainly by the middle of the day you're exhausted. so fatigued is difficult to make decisions and you worry that by the afternoon patients will not get high quality care. we simply don't have the workforce anymore to provide a safe service. and we have had a huge number of people who dna just especially of the last year. i have thought about the unit test. i think anybody tells you when it's liana, just a 100 percent. it's probably lighting well echoing that research by the health care workers foundation has shown that almost 75 percent of an h. s staff of considered leaving within the past 12 months. with nearly every 3rd health worker saying, there was a strong likelihood they would quit in the next year. dr. eg,
5:22 pm
it says the chest needs the government to take real action as never before. at least give them the sink. so doing and also help the n. i chess, i believe the government think that i just is blanket that we take too much funding, that we complain too much and then we can probably give them all that is absolutely categorically wrong. then a chess is crumbling and around us, we are all broken. we are all tired and we need the government to do all over the last 10 years. if we had made a decent, sustained, and the key higher point harry sustained investment in were folks. this could have been averted, but it's difficult to actually invest in keeping p when you're not sure if the money is going to come the following year and year after. you can only buy short packets or can short term. if you're not sure that the money is going to come in the future, so the real problem that we have lack of sustained promised investment. the french president has delayed retaliatory measures against the u. k. over the latest
5:23 pm
escalation and a long standing row on fishing rights, it's become a major post breaks at stumbling point with britain now warning that it's ready to take legal action if france doesn't stick to trade agreements that were reached last year. were on that next from artie. charlotte davinsky, i'm not sure that a solution is inside, but what we've seen for the moment is that the sanctions that have been threatened now by french for weeks have at least been put on ice, is more talks will take place at later this week. but i want to talk about the sanctions that have been threatened by france. they've talked about increasing the checks on vans and laurie's coming in to france. so customs checked, it talked about banning british boats from offloading their catch here and from fishing in french waters. this even being talk about either increasing the price of electricity to the channel islands ought to be cutting that electricity supply off altogether. so these are very serious threats as both sides are accusing each other
5:24 pm
of being in the wrong here. but the b u. k. foreign secretary list trust, these accusations, these threats have to stop, stop threatening a u. k. fishing vessels, stop threatening the channel ports and accept the we are entirely within our rights to allocate the fishing licenses in line with the trade agreement as we have done. now, there has already been one person who has fallen foul of this fuel a casualty. that was a british trula that was detained by the french authorities last week. the french accusing the skipper of that trula of not having the right licenses to fishing french water for scallops. now, as a result, the boat was detained and we understand that the skipper whose facing those charges will appear in court next year if found guilty, could face a fine of up to $75000.00 euro. so, you know,
5:25 pm
that's no small beer when you're looking at what the results could be of this escalation of any tensions between the french and the brit over fishing licenses. now, france, once more license is, it says that the u. k. must provide these licenses under the withdrawal agreement for the briggs. it chord, the u. k says look, we're abiding by everything that we committed to. so neither side wanting to particularly stand down in this situation. those talks ongoing. but for fishermen who rely on being able to go to british waters to land, they catch that french fitch men here they are just fed up with all of these delays . and only we have been in limbo regarding the issue of access to british waters near jersey in guernsey for 11 months. now. i know very well the tactical maneuvers by both sides. everyone immediately beginning to flex their muscles. fishermen however, do not want to live on benefits. they want to earn their own money. las cruces hard
5:26 pm
for us. the fishermen did not ask for briggs. it before it happened. they had the right to fish everywhere, and then they were suddenly told no, you cannot turn to the area on the british side. this leads to a decrease in turnover and makes both less profitable. now, here in berlin soon there, which is frances largest fishing port. fishing is a huge industry. it's not just about the fishermen who go out and want to fish in those british waters is also about the vendors. and the knock on effect that, that has on the economy of a port town like this. and we've been speaking to locals here. you say that they not only fully support the idea of sanctions, but they ready to blockade the port and of us because she that we should receive. i think it's very go to france, imposed sanctions, and forbids the english to come here because we have no rights and we don't even have anything to sell. i think our boats are ready to blog to port. it's necessary that the british give licenses to the french. i know they protect their own interests, but they need to stick to their commitments as fish mongers were unhappy because
5:27 pm
the british fish is always sell the most. it's around 80 percent overall. there's also accusation from the british that this is a bit more than just about the fishing licenses that this is about politics, particularly as ad there is a presidential election here in france in the next 6 months. although at present michael hasn't officially declared yet. it is expected that he will be seeking re election, and this is seen by many in the u. k as being his way of shoring up some support ahead of those difficult election months. and this is an issue that's been used as a wider political reason. we know that as on cast texas, the french prime minister, he had written to the european union calling for the union to act more strongly against the british. and also suggesting that this was a way of perhaps showing other would be briggs, etc. a type countries in the you, if they're thinking of doing the same, but leaving the book is incredibly difficult. the taught though, all these fishing licenses do to take place later this week. we'll wait for the
5:28 pm
results of that. but i would just say, given what we've heard over the last 3 months, neither is going to be likely to let the other off the hook very easily. and we're going to finish off his policy with a very unusual side here in moscow, in the past 24 hours on a definite sign that all items well and truly here to overnight and through the smalling of thick blanket, a fog descended on the capital enough for meet urologist to declare a yellow emergency because of the reduced visibility and also a warning for motorists to be a bit more attentive. the haunting hayes is also seen plenty of evocative photos, a pair online to oddly recommend. you take a look. oh, that's the kind of ground folk that you commonly see in cities around the world is definitely a rare occurrence here in moscow. that's it for your news this hour. i'm calling bray. i'll be back here in just over half an hour with your next global update. for marketing mm
5:29 pm
hm. ah ah ah ah, ah, a ah. oh is your media a reflection of reality?
5:30 pm
in a world transformed what will make you feel safe? isolation or community? are you going the right way or are you being led somewhere? direct. what is true? what is faith in the world corrupted? you need to descend so join us in the depths or remain in the shallows. thought she, she ah! below 2 mirrors, the lensky. born on january 21st 1978 comedian, producer, and screen.
