done and are bracing for things to potentially get worse. over the coming winter months. peter, all of her artie. berlin judges in canada have ruled that a comedian who joked about a disabled teenage singer did not reach the youngsters right to dignity. and mike, mike ward paled the decision by the supreme court as part of a growing backlash against counsel culture. i'm like o j. i one, this is the rest. i'm so happy. i think this is a good sign for comedy. i think this means the pendulum is about to swing the other way. comedians are going to be able to keep on doing jokes. i would want to tell him about how i fell when i 1st heard that the child as a 13 years old teaches. think about gang because a 40 year old man say so that you should gang singer,

jeremy gabriel. he's now 24. was born with a congenital disorder that causes sco abnormalities. he found fame in 2006 and even performed for pope benedict. some years later mike ward began mentioning gabriel's disability in his performances and defended his act by saying people shouldn't be afraid to joke about any subject. gabriel's family filed a human rights complaint, but candidates high school said that the singer was targeted not because of his disability, but because of his fame and while missed. the ward received support from the comedy world, or the still believe such jokes must face consequences in a lively conversation about it. here on our tea with a panel of guests. you know, i, i agree with the court's conclusion. i mean that they acknowledge said that this was a nasty thing that was said, but you know, it doesn't go as far as to, you know, have a legal financial consequences for this person. when mister ward comes to your town, you have the option to not buy
2:13 pm
a ticket. you can ignore his podcast. you have the right to do all those things. but should he be prosecuted in a court of law? that takes it a bridge way too far. in my opinion, we have to sink about. he was a child, he was 13 years old. and i truly believe we should safeguard our children more because especially in this case he was not only a child, but he was and he still is disable. so you know, the must be a stall between hatred and comedy between violence, you know, and free speech. god to charge in and find a guy tens of thousands of dollars for a joke, comedy and joking. and freedom of speech is a human right. when did this change? this is nuts to me. and you know, i have to disagree with the, the woman who spoke before, but this, he was not making fun of his disability. he was primarily making fun of people who
2:14 pm
thought the kid was so weak that you couldn't comment and make fun of his singing is still alive. he the only thing that from what is it was a little different. and he, you know, he has to wear a hearing aid. we shouldn't be treating people like so differently. i mean, have some respect for the guy. he's not some weakling that you need to defend like this. first of all, he was violence. verbal violence towards a child that was 13 years old and disabled child. i don't care if it wasn't a dress in his disability. he was suicidal after that. and you can be free to say whatever you want and be buying renting every way you want in that and you know in your job, i'm going to ship a nurse if to my cheek my disable, you know, employee like that. i would go to court to because doubt consequences for every one of us. but what we do in our life, okay, it's not only speech is an action, no one saying there should be consequences. but the argument is, the consequence should not be, you mean by tens of thousands of dollars and not be
2:15 pm
a lot of centrally not allowed to criticize someone. well, i just want to say this in response to that. i'm a lot of comedians and, and i would like to think i'm one of them. it is possible for us to have 2 thoughts in our head at the same time. thought number one, that's a joke that a lot of us would never make. i personally would never make a joke like that. that's me. ah, but another thought that i am also able to have in my head at the same time is i can see the dangerous slippery slope of having legal consequences for someone who chooses to make such a joke. even if i find it incredibly poor taste. and you know, free speech is just her virtue that i think is very important. and without it, i certainly wouldn't have a job to come after claims of a high level cover up. can you re opens a decade old probe into the merge of a young mother allegedly, at the hands of a british soldier that's on the way should ah,

world of politics, sport, business. i'm sure business. i'll see you then. mm. ah. welcome back hits may be a global attempt to save the world from climate change, but the huge cop 26 summit in scotland is not impressing greater timber. the swedish activist last out of the event while addressing crowns at the fridays for future march in glasgow. it is not a secret that cob $26.00 is a failure. it should be obvious that we cannot solve a crisis with the same methods that goes into it in the 1st place. protest events

2:19 pm
india, and also net 0 targets by 2017. that's 2 decades later than many had hoped. while they were calls for more money to be handed to developing countries to help them with that transition to other energy sources. and on that issue, auntie's husky tail has been looking at how complying with emissions goals may not be that simple for nations heavily dependent on fossil fuels. none of us here at 26 want to be on the right side of his cop 26. his hair and it's going to save us from doomsday. i've a 100 wild need as a setting out that goals for the future. and that big ones, stop deforestation switched to renewables. 0 emissions an ohio, electric. he nasa 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 we need to act. now, client change is already ravaged oral. we only have
2:20 pm
a brief window left before us to raise your ambition to raise to me. that sounds great. the question is, who pay the biggest price for all these politicians patches? it's easy for boucher and co to promised to turn off the light when they leave a room. but for others half way round. the wild thing no to fossil fuels is a luxury they just can't afford. if there is karl, we leave. if there isn't any call, we don't leave one person in eastern india said that, 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 their pace. the issue goes well beyond india, though, the developing large, ah, you know, it's certainly industrialization stage. then you know what? we've gone gone one space or time. ah, we don't that they will not really do live. there are societies out of poverty
2:21 pm
called consumption, and call as a basis for the livelihoods will remain a fact for some time. in fact, tens of developing countries have come together terrified of what the gran goals of 0 emissions made up by rich nations will mean for then. this new goal, which has been advanced, runs counter to the parish agreement, and is anti equity and against climate justice 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 plunged into poverty. now, it's also that these nations are asking, why are we paying for greedy guzzlers far away? the top 10 percent of countries consumed 20 times more energy than the bottom 10 percent, and $1100000000.00 sub saharan african share the same amount of power generation

capacity. as germany's 83000000 people, video gamers in california consume more electricity than entire nations. you won't hear anything about that a cope 26. and remember when times were tough, when to was coming, a gas was running low in europe. funny how no one was shouting about being a data source of energy when they begged for the tops 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 way 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 around the world, especially developing countries, accelerate their clean energy transition, address pollution, and ensure the world we all must share. a cleaner, safer health is planet. we have an obligation to help make no mistake. this is not
2:23 pm
a judgment on green energy. the goals of those gathered in glasgow are undoubtedly noble. but do the politicians so desperate to be seen as the leaders who saved the planet, realize what that p off friendly slogans actually mean for millions of people far away. and even if they did, would they do anything differently? there are some countries that actually have small populations but are consuming a lot of energy and everything. a lot of are capita carbon. people can see all around in most of the rich countries. it's not clear that they're really going to be themselves of it from coal, and i don't think that maybe realistic target will not much the 2015 that is accord target yet. so i think there's a lot of bluffing going on here. and i don't believe a lot of the, you know, the commitments are the pledges being made by rich countries, kenya has reopened a criminal probe into the heroic murder of a woman, allegedly,

2:27 pm
but we hope to finally get justice this case strikes right at the heart of alleged exploitation killings and cover ups in the british army. in fact, the very same defense secretary assisting this probe into one jacket, his death officially closed at stores on investigations and to more than a 1000 allegations of abuse by british soldiers in iraq. so with no prosecutions there, will this mean justice may never be solved for angus. when jerry, when jack, who and her family chateau edward dusty r t london. let me about up to date don't put up with more and half an hour. ah ah.
