the ah, top headlines are not the international european countries are divided over the u commissions proposal to label nuclear and the gas green form of energy. the new german government slamming brussels plan is an attempt to quote, greenwashing with snow storms have ground and flights in the united states with stopped shortages. i'm at the mark on outbreak also being laid and while the cobra cases in russia are falling over all the case load among children is wiring doctors in the country. and we speak to the chief physician that a children's coping hospital here in the russian kept our children age from one month to 17 years, conditions varied severity. the children here severely l and in the intensive care unit, the hope that exactly one year and so you k court ruled against julia

natalia to america, the program we look at the dramatic cases taken in washington also now winning its appeal just about a month ago in use your well by headlines 247. welcome to the program. it's but brussels is facing a bit of a backlash from major e u. nation's author. it proposed re categorizing nuclear and gas as green energy of the new german government economy minister, a brand of the proposal, a form of quote, green washing. meanwhile, energy prices and germany have risen dramatically over the last 3 months, certainly compared with a year ago. so a correspondent shot, a duper ski now picks up the story a new year and a new spat is brewing between new members. bickering has a rapid with state,
7:02 am
split over how energy from nuclear and gas sources should be classed in the future . you want to categorize investments in some of these projects as being green, but others argue this is essentially green washing. label nuclear energy as sustainable is wrong. this is a high risk technology. it is questionable whether this greenwashing will find acceptance on the financial market at all. that we think nuclear technology is dangerous. we still think the waste issue is unresolved. we expressly reject the assessment on nuclear power. under the commissions proposal investment, the new nuclear energy facilities should be classified as a group if they meet certain technical standards. now that lead to accusations that the commission is destroying the credibility of the european eco label for financial investments with germany leading the charge of nations against these proposals, but could put it in direct collision. of course,

with the blocks of the heavy weight. that is france, 70 percent of energy here is generated from nuclear power. so, convinces president michael and nuclear is the way forward. he's financed a 1000000000 euro investment. expanding the industry will go home in order to guarantee france, his energy independence to ensure our country's electricity supply and to achieve our objectives. in particular carbon neutrality. in 2050, we will, for the 1st time in decades, will relaunch the construction of nuclear reactors in our country and continue to develop renewable energies. the house, the support from some eastern block nations was for a vacuum prime minister agreeing that climate neutrality just called b met without nuclear energy. but australia is furious over the plan, saying it will take the commission to court. if it moves ahead with them,
7:04 am
we will examine the present draft carefully and have already commissioned a legal opinion on nuclear power in the taxonomy in these plans are implemented in this way. we will sue because atomic power is dangerous and not a solution in the fight against the climate crisis. meanwhile, germany is also coming under pressure over its anti nuclear stand from the czech republic. berlin has just all the closure of half of germany's remaining nuclear power plants, as part of a plan to withdraw completely from the technology. not prague describes that as being a radical step. our government will have to work patiently and hard look for allies in europe and convince partners. finally, it also has to move forward with the construction of nuclear units and to encourage investment in other reasonable renewable sources. that is the way out of the energy crisis. the alternative is under development and poverty, and nobody wants that. all of this comes as europe is in the midst of an energy
7:05 am
crisis, with some experts suggesting that the crunch will last roy the way until 2023 moved by germany and closing nuclear. react is also could push up prices even further. prices in german neil was twice as high as the could be. there is an energy crisis that the prices of the rising. rising cost means that the industry need more energy and that heating your home becomes expensive. we need cheap, stable energy to petition that run our country a lot focused on the interest of german industry in german customers. but that's the hollow, ideological, gender and a polar to logical agenda. the 1st is that they think they don't need gas because they want to do everything with the nubile update. it's a kind of magic. they believe that they can do that again. as the 2nd ideological
7:06 am
agenda, they follow that there are hard core intro, rushing one solution to that coin. this could be the approval of the nord stream to pipeline that would supply us directly from russia to germany. however, with tension tie you between the you and moscow, the green light for that project is far from so i've been leaving the e. u. scrambling to find the money to pay increasing energy bills, while members remain bitterly divided over the future of energy policy. charlotte, tv ski r t. paris. meanwhile, the 2nd line of the embassy pipeline from russia to germany has been filled with gas, with a link not ready for exports. however, the use of certification of nor stream to was taken just a bit longer than anticipated. artists might add gas d f. now looked at the fuss surrounding this embattled pipeline. 2020. what was the
7:07 am
year that the great green dream? that's a rude awakening. we all felt it in our bills, but no. where like europe, power gas prices are up for 500 percent in a year. this wasn't what your average green party propaganda, booster promised. europe was supposed to go from a dirty oil burning wasteland to a green renewable paradise just like that, which was never going to happen. this isn't hindsight, this was foresight 11 years ago when german business leaders laughed at the very idea. german society doesn't like nuclear energy, and i don't want to comment on this, but i don't understand how you hit your homes. you don't want gas, you aren't developing nuclear energy. what are you going to do? burn firewood. you don't have even that you'd have to go to siberia to get firewood
7:08 am
. drilling jokes aside, magnetic mines, knew that the transition to a carbon neutral society would, would take decades. and it wouldn't be easy. they built newer, cleaner power plants and new pipelines. natural gas will be a crucial part of the energy mix in europe for a long time. new projects like nurturing to a needed to ensure that europe's month energy is met to reach in on them eyeing the land. this project, regardless of how you feel about the gas pipeline or a back, russia is legally approved. and constitutionally approved, project must be implemented into any way then. and what's not stream to is not the projects of putin. rather, it is a project where a lot of european companies take part in it should serve to assure the gas security of europe nord stream to has been without a doubt, the most politicized energy project and recent history. they called it an
7:09 am
opportunity, a try, a breakthrough, a catastrophe. everyone just had to have a say, germany is a captive versus a supply to get rid of their colon, get rid of their nuclear. they get a so much of the oil and yes, from russia. i think it's something that neil has to look at. the older thing is neither nato know the u. s. had much of a problem with the 1st pop lie which runs parallel to nord stream too, which right now supplies germany with gas, which is $5.00 to $7.00 times cheaper than market prices. i would anyone have a problem with that low, aside from the competition approval of additional liquefied natural gas exports from free port l. n. g furthers this administration's commitment to promoting american energy, american jobs, and the american economy. i am pleased at the department of energy is doing what it can to promote and efficient regulatory system that allows for molecules of u. s. freedom to be exported to the world and is arguably the gist of it. they
7:10 am
threatened to sanctioned german companies, a nato ally, which didn't go down well in berlin. european energy policy is decided in europe, not in the usa. we fundamentally reject external interventions and sanctions with extra territorial effect. much has changed since the pipeline was completed. washington backed away from sanctions and a new government was elected in germany with energy prices at record levels. there were no rush to get gas flowing as things presently stand. this pipeline cannot be approved because it does not fulfill requirements of european energy legislation and questions of security or stop and seeing that one statement helps and natural gas prices, 10 percent higher and europe, which of course, your appeal families and households and businesses going to have to pay, but at least the government save space. and the meantime, let's join european leaders and bureaucrats and pratt,
7:11 am
and pray together that the energy prices somehow magic themselves back into the realm of affordability. the america is battling down the hatches as a winter storm pummels parts of the country. it's causing chaos for flights with around 5000 counselled over just the weekend alone, ultimately leaving hundreds of thousands of would be travelers unable to fly. now the weather has hit hard with the federal offices in the u. s. capital closing on monday. at the latest full cost of producing up to $8.00 inches of snow. i mean, while airlines have just been grounding flights over the weather lately, or the latest alma kron outbreak has been having an impact. a while back in october, southwest airlines canceled almost 2000 and flights just days after a pilot union suited over its implementation of, of back seen mandate. now the biden administration's been trying to impose jobs on 2 thirds of american workers. so move,
7:12 am
being resisted by senior government figures. the by the ministration has to follow . they have follow constitution. they're implementers of the law. they can't just make it up. and in this case, they're forcing american workers to decide between their health and their job. and they just can't do it, it's just wrong. the us reporters register over a 1000000 new code cases and just the past day kill him off and now takes a closer look at biden's efforts to baffle upon demick and harmful impact. they have had not only when its popularity, but also on vital services across the country. many will remember joe biden's harsh words to donald trump during the presidential debate last year. and he won his response from that many dish should not remain as president of the united states of america. when those words were said, the coven death toll was around 220000 will sense, then covert death numbers have risen to about 800000. the united states just set a record high for corona virus infections. remember,
7:13 am
when biden said that he would quickly and easily solve this problem? how's he doing? now back in may, joe biden set his goal to partially vaccinate 70 percent of the population by july . well, fast forward and that 70 percent has still not been vaccinated. what vaccine mandates have achieved is to further polarize the country. a large number of professionals in vital industries have lost their jobs. protests have shaken the country. ah. have you been reading me? what we're doing here today? and that is writing out, ah, we with,
7:14 am
with a large number of medical workers have been suspended. is kind of surreal, honestly, because i love my job. and i have been a coven nurse for since the beginning of the pandemic. i've been a nurse for 10 years. i worked for kaiser for 5. and when the pandemic happened we, we were scared in the beginning, like everybody by it is this amazing time to where we have really brave people. i worked with amazing doctors and nurses who showed up to work every day and just rolled up their sleeves and faced their fears and walked into these rooms. not knowing if they were going to get co pay to bring it home to their families. more than 2000 flights got canceled by american airlines due to a pilot shortage line for us meant has also been hit my reductions. it's not the
7:15 am
issue that the public wanted or the, the politicians said they were going to deliver. they'd want this black and white issue, it's a gray area between you're going to have this big gap between qualified police officers who are trained. you are season new cops coming in. the, the quality of new cops coming in is going to be held to a lower standard. so you're not going to get the best candidates. so do up patrol your streets and keep you safe. it's going to be a very organic living, breathing problem that has nas no solution in sight with so many things going wrong, jo biden's approval ratings are now in free fall. the japs haven't slowed down either. in fact, more people have died of covered so far in 2021. then in 2020. so this year biden's 2 main plans rebuild the people's trust and better fight cove. it have failed to come. true. caleb martin r t new york. well, just a reminder, the w h o sized vaccination, all natural immunity at the best way to stay safe within a number of
7:16 am
a daily covert cases in russia has more than a half since november when it reached the maximum of 41000. all the same, a number of russian cities have introduced new blue . oh, driven by dreamer shapes bankers and those with dares sinks. we dare to ask ah
7:17 am
ah ah, what is good to happy with us today for the program. the number of daily cove cases here in russia has more than a half since november. that's when it reached to report a maximum of 41000, all the same number of russian cities, orange reducing new restrictions at st. petersburg, for example, limiting access to shops and restaurants for the unvaccinated, the only exceptions grocery stores and pharmacies. and while the omar con variant
7:18 am
is spreading, doctors are worried about the impact early australians may have been having on children. as ortiz, anton krislofski investigated the issue back in december, ah, ah, what age are the children here and what condition are they in to? our children are age from one month to 17 years. the conditions varied severity for children here severely l and in the intensive care unit. unlike adults, cobra related pneumonia is less common among children, but it still happens showing 3 to full in c t severity. oh my but so this means complete lung damage, almost 100 percent store or what is especially alarming is that very importantly,
7:19 am
just like an adults, there is a tendency for the disease to rapidly develop. meaning that at some point, 10 percent of the lungs are affected and then suddenly it's up to almost 100 percent. yes, that's exactly what we've been seeing. especially when parents wait too long to call a doctor. how old are you? 10 years out? exactly. how do you feel? sometimes i have a headache, but i am okay. i that's not a my. how long have you been ill? 10 days already? yes, i'm in my 2nd week. her age put through risk, which is we've actually seen the highest incidence right among teenagers, 2 thirds of the children, a school age kids between 7 and 17 years old is because they are hanging out together and contact on each other all the time. right. among other things, yes, in you, out of them, it's mostly tmj is of the come and thanked it because they always hanging out together. also because statistically they demonstrate
7:20 am
a more severe cause of illness than and of the jewels of other ages. both of them because their bodies are growing so fast and because of their hormonal processes, yes, that homeowner background and physical transformation can influence the illness. more about the lessons are affected by more risk factors related to the course of the disease for you to check whether you, because i didn't there by the, is it the, it's not a harmless disease. it's not sorry that we sound alarm and there is a disease for which there is no medicine to day. the course of the disease is unpredictable. we don't know why someone has it hard and someone else has the easy human. as we know there are risk groups, but for some unknown reason, a severe case of the disease can be observed among the healthy children. ah, here's a child on a ventilator wearing an oxygen mask. yes, the child is really missing his mother, which is logical. that's why we always talk to him. the doctors are always with him
7:21 am
. otherwise he can tear off the mask that children are getting much sicker than in the 1st way. and worse than the 2nd. and 3rd, yes, worse than waves $2.00 and $3.00, which is just as you are for, for a hearing of complications develop very often at the covered. i do not depend on the severity of the disease. even children who have shown no symptoms, face complications. what do you think about vaccinated adults? i think it's a very good idea. you're dreaming. died there is no time to wait for children. also, i thought of infection, which if children are not vaccinated, we will not be able to grade the necessary elective immunity, which we have all been talking about for so long that works marable to the vaccine works. so what should the concerns be here? the theoretically, we understand that this vaccine cannot be more dangerous than adding no virus infection. some of the vaccine is infectious for cell, but not for the body. at the level of the organism, the virus does not reproduce any beatles when you breathe would,
7:22 am
ah. on monday the mexican president reveal, but he urged donald trump to pardon julian a son, but apparently never got a formal reply. lopez up at a door also said the whistleblower deserves quote to keep his freedom. meanwhile, washington recently won an appeal overruling a previous u. k. court decision not to expedite assign stateside with his defense team now look into counter appeal. ortiz shot, it was dashed reviews. the sagas twists and his hopes were settled, spending christmas with his family and said jude and his son spends another new year's eve behind balls in the you case most notorious prison 2022 maybe the year he sent to the u. s. after high court judges decided to overturn a verdict not to extradite him. it seems as though judges were satisfied by so called assurances of humane treatment that he would not be held in
7:23 am
a maximum security prison all subjected to isolation. serving his sentence in australia is also on the calls they say, but a sanchez defense don't buy it. the so called assurances of those points came after they lost the case in january. then they came back and said, okay, well we can, we can assure we will treating fairly so that should not be actually admissible in an appeal hearing. because you know, from a legal standpoint, you cannot just try to bend after the fact after you've lost the case. these us arguments were presented back in october during the to day appeal hearing, including that he wasn't as on well as is being suggested. turns out, as those words were being offered in, quote, by american noise, a song suffered a mini throat. julian is struggling and i fear this many stroke could be the precursor to a more major attack. it compounds are fears about his ability to survive. the longer this long legal battle goes on, it urgently needs to be resolved,
7:24 am
look at the animal strapped in cages and as you it cuts their life short. that's what's happening to julian. the never ending court cases are extremely stressful. mentally. it's not surprising. it's all taking, it's toll not only the legal labrenz, but reports of cia gang, so like plots to kidnap poison or assassinate him, as one is spying on him. and his high doubt in london's ecuadorian embassy weighed, received political asylum, while a soldier's noise. say there should be ample evidence to throw the entire case out of court. this young report is a game changer into the appeal because it shows the true nature, the true origins. the true commonality of the u. s. actions against julian. now reports that the ca conceited kidnapping, or killing assange have cost even more doubt on the reliability of u. s. promises and further expose the political motivation behind this case. sounds fictional, right? all parts of it are true. that's the admission of the then c,
7:25 am
i a director, mike pompeo, and they should all be prosecuted for speaking about classified activity inside the central intelligence agency. maybe they didn't, maybe as a got, just made it up. but you should, i take seriously my responsibilities to protect that information. this can be seen as pompoms confirmation of the assange kit, not all kill story. why else? what do you want to prosecute those sources? speaking about classified activity, but there's been another twist in the story. key accusations in the case against the sonnet are reportedly based on false testimony from a convicted fraudster, who admitted to lying in the legal proceedings in exchange for us immunity from prosecution for criminal activity. his supporters say all of this is enough to deem the case closed and press freedom groups that question a why jr nathan is behind bars while allege war criminals walk free. it is a damning indictment that nearly 20 years on virtually no one responsible for
7:26 am
alleged us war crimes committed in the course of the afghanistan and iraq was, has been held accountable, let alone prosecuted. and yet the publisher who exposed such crimes is potentially facing a lifetime in jail when students saw and was infamously, hold out of london's ecuadorian embassy in 2019, he was thrown in jail right here. the alarm has long been sounded over his treatment with the un special repertory torture warning he is suffering abuse. only shine prison. yes, i can feel to be tortured to death. that's the reality of it. and i'm not exactly do this. i'm sure. great. you know, medical harm has been close to him in the last decade to that, to the constant, you know, isolation, defamation, and abuse. and i come from anxiety that he suffers and he's being isolated absolutely necessary, and therefore unlawful, even if you, even if we assume for the purpose of the argument that yes,
7:27 am
that extradition proceeding is to do them. if you have to somehow secure his presence, he can be in the house arrest for legal basis for this is we suppose the 52 week sentence, the skipping bales back in 2012. so he's currently not sending any sentence, no facing any actual criminal charges. sounds like he's a political prisoner right. well, washington professor team him a security risk and wants him to all the questions across the pond on that task, and their rules, his support to say, pursuing a vendetta against the songs. ultimately silence is him, but will also science other journalists in the future. this is a ration. anyone who knows the united states well knows the power overseer, the extra judicial power of the cia, the extra talking mental power to see. yeah. that's what this is. this is,
7:28 am
this is what you probably say. 2008 wiki lakes. first major lakes it march, the 18th, 2008 is from the us army counter intelligence assessment branch, department of defense. you read through this document. it lays out everything that's happened on from 2010. we will get a song by smearing him. i had to spread, observing him by destroying trust me. i am good from here. wrong investigative journalism. all this time are not the words serious investigative journalism is our junior. so in a different culture, in a different place, should we seems a hero. but because he was exposing what the us and britain in particular were doing, he seems of it to me is somebody that when the history books are written,
7:29 am
the 21st century jewelry massage, his name will be right up. there was somebody that told the truth. as 2021 comes to an end, judith saw and just closer than ever to extradition with court siding with the u. s . government. so what will 2020 to bring for a start that can be a pills either across appear at the magistrate court, or even not supreme court level. this could even reach the european court of human rights. at this point though, the home secretary may say enough's enough and intervene herself. of course, you're an assigned faces, a 175 years behind us bars. but with that trial, be fair, considering how fast this process has been in the u. k. chart edwards dusty r t a london by that's wrapping up the new cost for this hour here on ot he international, you can read more about the fate of julian assange. what will happen to him at r t dot com? also a more reports on julian us on,
7:30 am
on how to use you tube channels. the meantime, price of joining us back soon with join me every thursday on the alex simon, sure. i'll be speaking to guess with the world politics sport business. i'm sure business. i'll see you then. mm ah howdy, welcome to the kaiser.
