the the headlines right now here went off into national european countries to bite and over the u commission is proposal to label nuclear and gas as green forms of energy. the new german government plumbing brussels planned as both green washing with snow storm was grounding many flights in america with stopped shortages amid the alma calling outbreak. all big black and well covert cases in russia are falling overall case load among children is wiring come doctors coffee spoke to the chief physician of the children's coven hospital right here, and our children age from one month to 17 years. the conditions vary severity for children, have severely health and in the intensive care unit exactly one year since the u. k

. court ruled against the expedited julian a sorry to america in the program. we look at the dramatic twisted cases taken since then, also with washington. now, winning it to appeal just about a month ago. the news will a very warm welcome to you from a very winter most go where it's not just off the 5 pm straight to your top stories . now, with me, research brussels is facing a bit of a backlash. now from major e, you, nation's after proposed re categorizing nuclear and natural gas as green energy. the new drum and governments economy minister, branded the proposal a form of, quote, greenwashing. meanwhile, energy prices in germany have risen dramatically over the last 3 months. reporting on this story. now ortiz charlotte sky, a new year and a new spat is brewing between new members. bickering has
9:02 am
a rapid with state split over how energy from nuclear and gas sources should be classed in the future. the, 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 resolved. 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
9:03 am
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 convincing president, mac, nuclear is a way forward, he financed a 1000000000 euro investment. expanding the industry will go home, you know, 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, relaunch the construction of nuclear reactors in our country and continue to develop renewable energies on the house. the support from some eastern block nations with slovak is prime minister agreeing that climate neutrality just call 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. will will
9:04 am
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 stance from the czech republic, berlin has just ordered the closure of half of germany's remaining nuclear power plants, as part of a plan to withdraw completely from the technology. now 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.
9:05 am
all of this comes as europe is in the midst of an energy crisis, with some experts suggesting that the crunch will last roy the way until 2023 moved by germany and closing nuclear reactors also could push up prices even further. and as prices in german neil was twice as high as they 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. run our country a lot focused on the interest of german industry and german customers. but that's the holo ideological agenda. and de paula to the 1st is that the thing they don't need get because they want to do everything with the nubile update
9:06 am
. it's a kind of magic, they believe that they can do that again. as the 2nd audiological 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 certain, leaving the you 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 under see pipeline from russia to germany has been filled with gas, and the link is not ready for exports. however, the use certification of not nor stream to has taken a bit longer than anticipated. so as senior correspondent, what gas b,
9:07 am
as now looking at what some calling the fuss surrounding this pipeline 2020. what was the 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 on developing nuclear energy, what are you going to do? burn firewood. you don't have even that he got to go to siberia to get firewood.
9:08 am
which jokes aside pragmatic minds knew that the transition to a carbon neutral society would, would take decades. and it wouldn't be easy. they built newer, clean power plants and new pipelines. natural gas will be a crucial part of 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. i'm the land this project, regardless of how you feel about the gas pipeline or a back. russia is legally opposed. 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
9:09 am
opportunity, a try, a breakthrough, a catastrophe. everyone just had to have a say, germany is a captive over his physician fly to get rid of the colon, get rid of that nuclear. they get he so much of the oil and yes, from russia. i think it's something that neil has to look at. the oldest thing is neither nato know, the u. s. had much of a problem with the 1st pop lie which runs parallel to node 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 portal and 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 an efficient regulatory system that allows for molecules of
9:10 am
u. s. freedom to be exported to the world. at is arguably the gist of it. they threatened to sanction 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 are still open. signal seems like that one statement helps and natural gas prices 10 percent higher. and europe, which of course, european families and households and businesses a going to have to pay. but at least the government saves face. and the mean top
9:11 am
net store in european leaders and bureaucrats and prayer and pray together that the energy prices somehow magic themselves back into the realm of affordability. so america is battling down the hatches as a winter storm, hummel's part of the country. it's causing chaos for flights, as we understand around $5000.00 flights, been cancelled just over the weekend, but ultimately leaving out hundreds of thousands of would be travelers, stranded on the weather, has hit hard with federal officers in the u. s. capital closing on monday. the latest forecast to predicting up to 8 inches of snow. meanwhile, airlines have been just been grounding flights over that of the weather. latest omicron outbreak has apparently been having an impact. on back in october, southwest airlines cancelled almost 2000 flights just days after a pilot union sued the carrier over its vaccine mandate. and the biden
9:12 am
administration's being trying to impose cobit shots on 2 thirds of all american workers. it's a move that is being resisted by various senior figures in the government. the biden administration has to follow law. they have follow constitution, their 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 u. s. report li registered over a 1000000 new covert cases in just the past day. so ortiz kellum up in new york now taking a closer look at biden's efforts to battle the crisis. 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 cova death hall was around $220000.00. we'll since then, coven death numbers have risen to about 800000. the united states just set
9:13 am
a record high for corona virus infections. remember, 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 of shaking the country. ah, human reading may be what we're doing here today, and that is writing out i we with
9:14 am
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 work 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 later 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
9:15 am
issue that the public wanted or the, the politicians said they're going to deliver. they 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 now has no solution in sight with so many things going wrong, jo, biden's approval ratings are now in free fall. the depths 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. coven have failed to come. true. caleb, martin, r. t new york. and just a reminder, the w h o says that vaccination or natural immunity are the best ways to stay safe
9:16 am
. we're coming up here on archie international. we look at why doctors in russia are, are raising the alarm on the crisis impact on children. that's coming away. after a quick break, lou . ah.
9:17 am
what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy, even foundation, let it be in arms. race is on offense. very dramatic development. only nationally, i'm going to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very difficult time time to sit down and talk ah, that's good to be with us today for this program. the number of daily cobra cases in russia has more than a half since november when it apparently reached a maximum of 41000. all the same, a number of russian cities though, have introduced new restrictions and be to say simply this book of venice. if the north is ultimately leading the way it's a limiting access to shops and restaurants really unvaccinated,
9:18 am
and the only exceptions of going to the grocery shops will pharmacies, while the homework on very and continue to spread, doctors are worried about the impact of the earliest drains may have had on children se antoine cross off ski investigated the issue back in december with with what age are the children here and what condition are they in through our children the age from one month to 17 years, the conditions varied severity for children who are severely ill and in the intensive care unit. unlike adults, co related pneumonia is less common among children, but it still happened was showing $3.00 to $4.00, and c t severity. here is full,
9:19 am
so this means complete lung damage almost 100 percent or store or what is especially alarming is not very importantly, just like an adult. 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 smooth? sometimes i have a headache but i am okay. not a my. how long have you been ill? 10 days already? oh yes, i am in my 2nd week, her age put through a 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 and each other all the time, right. among other things, yes, you out of them. it's mostly tmj. is that the come and thanked it because they
9:20 am
always hanging out together also because statistically, they demonstrate a more severe cause of illness than and of the jewels of other ages. get rid of them because their bodies are growing so fast. and because of their hormonal processes, yes, that hormonal background, and then physical transformation can influence the illnesses more at the lessons, are affected by more risk factors related to the course of the disease for you to check with you. because i didn't there belize it, 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 it easy to me. as we know there are risk groups, but for some unknown reason we severe case of the disease and i can be observed among healthy children. ah, here's a child and eventually wearing an oxygen mask. yes,
9:21 am
the child is really missing his mother, which is logical. that's why we always talk to him. the doctors are always with him . otherwise, he can tear off the mask that children are getting much sick 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 his uniform complications develop very often after coated. 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. what a mean nation died there is no time to wake children also, i sort of infection which if children are not vaccinated, we will not be able to grade the necessary collective immunity, which will have all been talking about for so long that works in both of the vaccine works. so what should the concerns be here? the theoretically, we understand that this vaccine cannot be more dangerous than ada, no virus infection. the vaccine is infectious for cell,
9:22 am
but not for the body. at the level of the organism, the virus does not reproduce any riddles. when you breathe would. ah, on monday the mexican president revealed that he had urged donald trump to pardon julian assange, but apparently never got a full will reply. and lopez to open a door. also said the whistleblower is up to quote, to keep his freedom. meanwhile, washington recently won an appeal overruling a previous u. k. court decision not to extrude either san to america with his defense team now looking to counter appeal. so just for a moment here is shot here it was dusty, reviewing. now the sog is twists and turns. today's his hopes were settled, spending christmas with his family in set. jude and his son spends another new year's eve behind bars in the u. k. most notorious prison 2022 maybe the year he sent to the us after high court judges decided to overturn
9:23 am
a verdict not to extradite him. it seems as though judges was satisfied by so called assurances of humane treatment that he would not be held in 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'd increase in fairly so that should not be actually admissible in an appeal hearing. because you know, from a legal standpoint, you cannot just try to amend 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 was and as on well as is being suggested, turns out as those words were being offered in, quote, by american noise. a sound suffered a mini throat. julian is struggling and i fear this many stroke could be the
9:24 am
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. 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 labrons, but reports of cia, gangs to 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 soldiers, lawyers say this 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,
9:25 am
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 a are true. that's the admission of the then c, i, a director, mike pompeo. they should all be prosecuted for speaking about classified activity inside the central intelligence agency. maybe they didn't, maybe as a cap, 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 sonic 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
9:26 am
a damning indictment that nearly 20 years on virtually no one responsible for alleged the u. s. 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 repertoire and torture warning he is suffering abuse . only shine prison. yes, i can 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
9:27 am
absolutely necessary. and therefore, even if you, even if we assume for the purpose of the argument that yes, that extradition proceeding is to do them. if you have to somehow secure his presence, it can be in house arrest or legal basis for this. is we supposed to 52 week sentence for skipping bail 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, notice the power of the sky, the extra judicial power of the cia,
9:28 am
the extra talking mental power to see. yeah. that's what this is. this is, this is what you probably say. 2008 on the wiki, late 1st major late 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 happened on from 2010. we will get a song by smearing him. i just spread, observing him. why destroying trust me. i am good from here. wrong investigative journalism. all this time are not the words. serious investigative journalism is our, a different culture in
9:29 am
a different place should we seems a hero. but because he was exposing what the us and britain in particular were doing, he seems to me is somebody that when the history books have written the 21st century jewelry massage, his name will be right up with somebody that told the truth. as 2021 comes to an end june, a saw and just closer than ever to extradition with court siding with the u. s. government. so what will 2020 to bring for start that can be appeals 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, during assange 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 and that assigned your story,
9:30 am
wrapping up this i was news cost here at our to international life for moscow. worse now exactly half past 5, tuesday, late afternoon, early evening. thanks for sharing your time with us. he had more of a story still to come when we were taught at the top. ah, who wrote driven by dreamers shaped banks, concur some of those with ah, there's things we dare to ask. oh, is your media a reflection.
