6:05 pm
by which to finish doing this. we are following the reports of drone attack, this apparent act of terrorism, which was strongly condemn, was directed to the heart of the rock estate. our commitment to our iraqi partners is unshakable, the another se sent with the government and people of iraq. kristen colton, that he's come to rep, particularly now amid the u. s. military withdrawal. and that is why washington is watching events so carefully. the united states was among the 1st countries to praise the results of last month elections. of course, they will be particularly concerned and how things are developing their through all came as a professor of history and international relations at the lebanese university in beirut. and he says that the assassination attempt could have been designed to send a message. this bumping 1st could be a false flag on behalf of some group to be taken by the prime minister as a justification for the correct down on demonstrations. this could also be
6:06 pm
a message by some shared groups who lost the parliamentary elections to the prime minister, who is open to the supported by the united states who came to power and a huge and the way it happened and, and these uses meant by the united states to their troubles and iraq and the united states to make it like ever leading site for iran. and it's also it's black and ukraine to make ukraine a bleeding site for russia to be updating side for syria. so this is the global american this was why the americans manipulated the election shares in the german company and joined the developer of the pfizer covered vaccine
6:07 pm
bio and tack have plunged 20 percent and for several setbacks, including a whistleblowers report in the british medical journal, pointing to serious flaws in last year's vaccine trials, particularly per trend co can tell us more. how many people do you know, who are sick and tired of daily debates about vaccine safety? well, i know quite a few and you know, what really gets me fired up about these conversations. quite often, those who do most of the talking have next to 0 expertise in the relevant science concerning medical trials for example. but what about when those who really do know better south the alarm over possible issues? earlier this week, one respected medical journal published an investigation in which you could read things like this. one employee said she had worked on over 4 dozen clinical trials in her career, but it never experienced such a healthy skill to work environments. as we've been tabio on pfizer trial. i don't
6:08 pm
think it was good clean dates of the employee said of the dates of it's harvey generated for the pfizer trial. it's a crazy mess. those are some pretty serious concerns. but let me give you the full picture. these were comments that the journal received anonymously from former employees of one of the firm's tasks with carrying out the pfizer vaccine trial vent avia. the authors got in touch with them while investigating the claims of a whistleblower, who worked for a tabio for a couple of weeks before being fired, supposedly in connection with sounding the alarm over quite a list of issues including things like this. the the, the, the, the whistleblower provided the journal with internal company documents,
6:09 pm
photos, and audio recordings to backup her concerns. i do have to say though, we've not seen them in the article or received access some other way. and obviously it wasn't up to us to supervise an american contract or on a pivotal trial of one of the world's most widely known jabs. the question is, did the u. s. government agency and charge the food and drug administration know about any of that. within ours, jackson received an email from the f. d a thanking her for her concerns and notifying her that the f. d. a could not come in on any investigation that month result. a few days later, jackson received a call from an f dea inspector to discuss her report, but was told that no further information could be provided. she had nothing further in relation to her report. the ride people apparently didn't know, or at least were notified that lead to any oversight of the company by the regulator. the answer is no. on the contrary,
6:10 pm
the watchdog was instead quick to greenlight, pfizer for emergency use in america. in fight this briefing document submitted to an f. d. a advisory committee meeting held on the 10th of december 2020. the company made no mention of problems de vince avia site. the next day to f. d. a issued the emergency use authorization of the vaccine. a few more details that like disconcert summary of f. b, a. inspections at pfizer is vaccine trial site said that 9 of 153 had been inspected. but none of those had been operated by vin, tommy, and no expection had been conducted at all. and the 8 months between the emergency authority ation and the full approval, pfizer has since hired been tabi as a research subcontractor to work on for other clinical trials, the use of the coven vaccine, and children and young adults. a cobit 900 trial involving pregnant women and
6:11 pm
a trial of cobit 19 booster doses. this is a global pandemic in a global pandemic. we have a duty. this is the important bed. we have a duty. we have an up must duty to look after other nations. it is a clear example of we look after ourselves in the 1st instance, and we are not very interested in the welfare, the well being. the recovery of other countries of cause profit is the biggest motive here, and it is an example of protecting their financial prospect in the future. ok, not an expert. and maybe the trials were actually properly conducted. maybe someone was just not a big fan of the u. s pharmaceutical jain. but what i want to be confident about is that someone confident whose job is to have these trials under control actually does his or her job to the full or at least mentions reports on possible red flags
6:12 pm
. we contacted pfizer, inventor via for comment on the claims as well as posing further questions to the us food and drug administration. but they have yet to respond to our increase dr. reggie for our consultant, physician for britain's national health service things vaccine development has fallen victim to corporate greed by the has full made this by no means the 1st time that i've been found to be acting in a way in which you can really say that their commercial interests is compromising bay clinical and research objectivity and judgment. what this really shows that it's been developed above the acceptable speed of signs of a that of course, that of applied and more people to the trolley kind of adequate stop to run the trial. in appropriate wayne is a constant commercial pressure, even with a sub contractor to make profit. so to have fewest off and generate results more quickly and cut corners. in this way, commercial interest is pressuring, you know, what would be the best way to treat the pandemic. and the best way to develop the drug such as in canada, have ruled that a comedian who joked about
6:13 pm
a disabled teenager singer did not breach the youngsters rights to dignity. comic mike ward hailed the decision by the supreme court as part of a growing backlash against clark cancelled culture. i'm like o j. i one. this is a vess. 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. we want to tell him about how i fell when i 1st heard that the job as it 13 years old to just think about gang because a 40 year old man say so that you should guy the now 24 year old singer jeremy gabriel. i was born with a birth defect that causes scull abnormalities. he found fame in 2006, and even performed for pope benedict. some years later mike ward began mentioning
6:14 pm
gabriel's disabilities in his performances and defended his act by saying that people shouldn't be afraid to joke about any subject. gabriel's family filed a human rights complaint, but candidates highest court said that the singer was targeted, not because of his disability, but because of his fain. and while mr. ward received support from the comedy world, others still believe that jokes must face consequences. we had a lively discussion about it here on our tea with a panel of guests. you know, 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 word comes to your town, you have the option to not buy 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
6:15 pm
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 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 looks a little different. and he, you know, he has to wear
6:16 pm
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 an interpreter. if tomorrow i treat my disable, you know, employee like that, i would go to court because that consequences for every one of the what we do in our life, okay, it's not on the speech is an action, no one saying there should be consequences. but the argument is, the consequence should not be you being by tens of thousands of dollars and not be a centrally not allowed to criticize someone. well, i just want to say this in response to that, a lot of comedians and i would like to think i'm one of them. it is possible for us
6:17 pm
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. 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 an incredibly poor taste. and you know, free speech is just a virtue that i think it's very important and without it, i certainly wouldn't have a job. world leaders make big promises over climate change at cop $26.00 has protesters on the ground, including gret, thornburg say it's all hot air that story and more after this short break. ah ah, why group monitors the compliance a wall?
6:18 pm
g 20 members with their commitments. they made up their all last summer and what we have found is that a year later on the even the wrong so countryside complied and unprecedentedly high level 80 my percent then i'm optimistic that because that break shaw cold it is to always, i think will get high compliance with the wrong commitments on cobit to ah, join me every 1st day on the alex, simon. sure. but i'll be speaking to guess in the world of politics, sport, business, i'm show business. i'll see you then. mm. ah
6:19 pm
ah, welcome back. it may be an attempt to save the world from climate change, but the huge cop, 2006 summit and scotland is not impressing grad thornburg. the swedish activist lashed out at the event while addressing crowds at the fridays for future march and glasgow. it is still a secret that call $26.00 is to say, yeah, it should be obvious that we cannot sold a crisis with the same methods that goes into it in the 1st place. protest events have also been held around the world to coincide with cop $26.00 with demonstrators echoing gret thornburg's call for those in power to take action. ah,
6:20 pm
with with the cop $26.00 conferences now and it's 2nd week kicking off that the event, the british prime minister warned of a doomsday scenario. all the american president found the u. s. would lead by example, in the fight against climate change. one of the world's biggest polluters, india announced a net 0 target by 2070, although that's 2 decades later than many had been hoping for. while there were many calls for more money to be handed to developing countries to help with their transition to other energy sources, it is my plant and on that issue, our
6:21 pm
t. saskia taylor has been looking at how complying with the mission goals may not be as simple for nations heavily dependent on fossil fuels. hope $26.00 his hair and that's going to save us from doomsday over $100.00 wild need is a setting out their goals for the future. and then big ones. stop deforestation switched to renewables. 0 emissions and ohio electric nasty thing 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 has already ravaged oral. we only have a referral before us to raise or are visioned to raised me to task. sounds great. the question is, who pay the biggest price for all these politicians patches?
6:22 pm
it's easy for both chad and co promised to turn off the light when they leave a room. but for others half way around the world, saying no to fossil fuels is a luxury. they just can't afford. if there is a car we leave. if they reason any call, we don't leave one person and east and get set up, 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 pates. the issue goes well beyond india, though, the developing ward, a live industrialization stage, then you'd know what we've gone one space our time. we don't that they will not be able to lift their societies out of poverty, cold consumption, and all 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
6:23 pm
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 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 also 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 consumed 20 times more energy than the bottom 10 percent. and 1100000000 sub saharan african share the same amounts of power generation capacity. as germany's 83000000 people, video gamers and california consume more electricity than entire nations. you won't
6:24 pm
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 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 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
6:25 pm
away. and even if they did what 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 crazy 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 make the 2015 batteries 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. in recent weeks, nato's been boosting its presence in the black and baltic seas. and now the u. s. navy is advertising exactly what it's been up to. sailing alongside nato allies to ensure security and stability in the black sea is a great way to spend
6:26 pm
a saturday. it's been a pleasure sailing with you turkey. since november 4th, the russian naval forces began monitoring the monitoring the flagship of the u. s. navy, after it entered the black sea on route to on route the american vessel stopped, and it's done bull before later being joined by another u. s. ship. meanwhile, a us congressman, recently called on president biden, to deploy a greater military presence to the area to protect ukraine. russian defense minister claimed that the u. s. naval presence was another nato attempt to test russia's military readiness. president putin though, said the countries keeping a watchful eye on all maneuvers. were you willing yet? uh, what do it? we're witnessing the appearance of nato aligns ships with guided missile weapons in the waters of the baltic and black seas. and as you know, a u. s. ship has entered the black sea. we can look at it through binoculars or the sites of the appropriate defense systems. international affairs commentator
6:27 pm
jonathan steele says the u. s. has no military obligations to ukraine, since it's not part of nato. what are they doing in the black sea under nature command is just a way of nature. trying to show was the united states was trying to show the to just see his money super in every field in spacing landed sea. and now, i mean, it's completely artificial. because if there were to be tensions in ukraine, they're going to be land tensions in east and ukraine. yarger, the russian navy is going to do something against ukraine. his nonsense in any way, you crimes, not part of note. there's no obligation for us to come in and i think it's just needing the ukrainians up to god and talked to think that the nature, the dearest is the reliable airline. look what happened in afghanistan. just now we're a super decide when he turned to merits, whether to take action to defend ukraine. not because it was, it's not actually part of nato. there's no obligation on the years to insert falsely leading ukraine up the garden path. i think more news and just about 30
6:28 pm
minutes. ah ah ah, is your media a reflection of reality? in the world transformed what will make you feel safer? isolation, whole community. are you going the right way or are you being led to somewhere? direct? what is true? what is great?
6:29 pm
in the world corrupted, you need to descend a join us in the depths or remain in the shallows. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy, even foundation, let it be an arms race group is often very dramatic development only personally and getting to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successfully, very critical of time. time to sit down and talk with
6:30 pm
me. i don't welcome 12 people class test verity. those were chosen as a guiding priorities. i wrote one of the 1st person gatherings of global leaders in condemning a strong but while the v p global is greater than bumper sticker, is it realistic in terms of social b cannot make policy general, prioritize the hell of the planet while also delivering its people into prosperity . well, to discuss it and now joined by your own crew professor of political science at the university of toronto and director of the g 20 research group. those are kristen, it's luke, to talk to you. thank you very much for taking the time.
