12:02 am
decade that's nearly double the previous target it tops off a week of similar bold promises the u.k. aiming for a 78 percent cut the e.u. by $55.00 and canada by 40 to 45 percent all off $990.00 s. emissions to put it in perspective the u.s. carter's around 41 to 44 percent from $990.00 it means more than half the world. amazin are committing to the target set by the paris accord to keep global warming to $1.00 degrees celsius above pre-industrial levels by the end of the century but it's still going to be a challenge we're already at 1.2 degrees celsius a white house correspondent kimberly how could reports of virtual global summit convened by u.s. president joe biden an invitation to world leaders to combat climate change collectively the signs are on mistaken will the science is undeniable and the
12:03 am
cost of an action is keeps mounting united states is awaiting where resolving to take action. biden announced the u.s. would cut fossil fuel emissions by up to 52 percent by 2030 the earth day pledge renews america's commitment following 4 years of inaction by predecessor donald trump it more than doubles america's target under the 2015 paris climate agreement that trump withdrew from that biden rejoined when he took office. this just bursting into. song 40 world leaders participated including american adversaries russia and china china is the world's biggest emitter of greenhouse gases president xi jinping pledged to achieve carbon neutrality by $26.00 to adding this jab at the united states china has committed to move from carbon peak to carbon neutrality in

the much shorter time span than what might take many countries just weeks after the u.s. and russia leveled sanctions against one another ask elating tensions russian leader vladimir putin said he takes international commitments seriously like hero and paris hinting the united states does not russia has reduced its greenhouse gas emissions to greater extent than many other countries but biden faces domestic challenges implementing his green economy or oil gas and chemical companies spent more than 100000000 dollars last year lobbying u.s. lawmakers to keep fossil fuel vehicles on the road speaking virtually before a congressional panel swedish climate activists gratitude and berg back out to hold lawmakers accountable if they don't change i don't believe for a 2nd that you will actually do this because i'm
12:05 am
a crisis doesn't exist in the public debate today and since it doesn't really exists and the general level of awareness is so absurdly low you will still get away with continuing to contribute to the destruction of presence and future living conditions. president biden's announcement of a new u.s. call for reducing greenhouse gas emissions is ambitious but what it lacked are specifics including a legislative plan a budget or any kind of proposal for meeting biden's new climate target kimberly help hit al jazeera the white house trying to you has more from beijing on machine pings message at the summit this wasn't about details for china this moment is about the optics they want to send a message to the world that china takes this issue very seriously want to transform its image of just being a world polluted to being a sort of proactive leader when it comes to fighting climate change and another
12:06 am
important message she jinping sent was that china also wants to set aside or it's willing to set aside the tensions that it has with the u.s. to work on this issue now we've been watching all day chinese state media talk about this and there has been quite a lot of suspicion if you will about the u.s. return to leave this climate change f. it a lot of tabloids a lot of the state media channels have been saying can the u.s. really be relied on because as we've seen a according to who too who is at the helm of the u.s. they haven't really been consistent in their message and china converse lee wants to send the message that they are reliable and can be looked upon as a leader certainly as an equal to the u.s. but there are disagreements that china believes that the u.s. needs to do more when it comes to helping poorer countries invest in clean energy and transitioning into renewable energy there and the u.s. for its part wants china to do more to cut its carbon emissions and implement more
12:07 am
stringent targets we're now joined by david wallace wells also of the uninhabitable and editor at large at new york magazine thanks so much for being with us how much do you think it is that the u.s. can meet that new target set by a president by. i think in general it's a might raise an incredibly ambitious target even if we totally zeroed out our emissions from the power sector we wouldn't be able to get there and then we had to cut from transportation infrastructure industry i recall tripping these are very tough targets to hit and without a sort of concrete plan for how to get there i'm skeptical nevertheless i think it's an incredibly lot of all steps forward for the country that has produced the lion's share of the world's psystar commissions to say that this is a very serious issue we need to be moving immediately and trying to take a retake a leadership position on the issue that they've abandoned in the past what will people make of the cost of these kind of fare measures what the meeting the target how expensive will it be i think there's a growing economic consensus all around the world that in fact the cost is negative
12:08 am
that countries will be better off the faster they move and i think that's why we've seen so many new ambitious pledges being made over the last year from the e.u. from south korea from japan and especially from china these are not pledges that were made on the occasion of the summit they were not pledges that were made in the context of international negotiation they were made because these countries are short term benefit in decarbonising i think the us is the same logic which means it looked at holistically we will be better off the faster move on climate i'm slower remove them will pay what about the point environmental campaigners are making about this as some areas of the economy not being addressed for instance flying all oil and gas training that kind of thing. well you know in general that the u.s. plan doesn't have particular so suggesting any particular sector but i think the lowest hanging fruit here is the power sector electricity generation i think it makes sense for us to move quicker there and in some of these other sectors we don't have a good replacement for air travel for instance we don't have a way to do that without reducing emissions i would like to see us develop such
12:09 am
a way but you know in the meantime i think it makes more sense for us to move as quickly as we can and reducing emissions from electricity generation and from transportation through the uptake of electric vehicles and invest in r. and d. and the other sectors that are coming along more slowly but they're absolutely right that we can't solve this problem we can stabilize the world's temperature at any level without getting all the way to 0 and that means you're on out each sector not just our generation what do you make about the fact that there's a new new pledges from india and china but it commitment to phase out coal if you know it from from china well in general i think you know these are countries that china especially has made some quite ambitious pledge just earlier this year so i would have expected them to have improved upon them as recently you know as quickly as this conference i think if they stick to their pledge or go into next year about 2060 and fulfilling it in a way that they were outlined in their 5 year plan i would be very impressed with that this conference i think is more about resetting the geopolitics of climate and trying to put america at the center of that than it is about actually going to
12:10 am
shooting new pledges a new commitments and those will be coming likely at the glasgow conference and how much it is there a risk that some of these ambitions a d. rail because of economies trying to restart off to cave 19. well you know emissions are going to rise next year and in fact call us is expected to rise too according to a new report from the i.a.e.a. but i think you know the question of the longer term trajectory is not you know there's trajectories don't change all that much year to year carbon is something that hangs in the atmosphere for centuries which means that we have to tackle this challenge on a time scale of decades and centuries not on a time scale of months and years and i think there's going to be some additional coal build out in the next year that might have not happened without covert and without the need to bounce back quickly but in general i think too many of the world's countries understand that the future is renewable and especially that coal is a thing of the past that we don't have to worry too much about it on spec from coal and what we really have to worry about is just accelerating the deployment of noble

but he is refusing to leave his drivers has they travelled for 3 hours to come to the hospital only to be turned away. we were told that only. from the top authorities. the patients are all the ambulance and be delayed of that mission. no weird or dick the patients on the oxygen in the ambulance finished. hospitals and india's capital a full of people arriving ambulances cars and. pleading for admission but even the family members of those inside a worried about their loved ones this. mother was admitted a week ago he says he's only been able to speak to her once. situation is very grim here no one is paying attention to patients hospitals are
12:17 am
open in the city and the chief minister isn't giving any on to us about this crisis if we call the covert help line no one on to us people going to even get. my question is that my mother has been admitted for one week so who's taking care of. his sister is also distraught and. people are going inside the hospital and their dead bodies are coming in there was a baby and they denied him admission saying they cannot allow the child inside. delis health minister called a shortage of intensive care beds and oxygen supplies in the capital a grave crisis he's asking the central government to help create more beds this woman has come here like so many others after being turned away by other hospitals we have seen patients arriving at hospitals all day struggling to breathe being carried by desperate family members. of the central government to send up such an
12:18 am
supplies of the capital urgently its judges say the lives of thousands of people are at stake and let's ask the government why it's not waking up to the situation. the government says it's planning to import oxygen and ensure its uninterrupted delivery throughout the. tree states are converting sports stadiums and halls and to code 19 care centers but not fast enough to match the wards biggest surgeon cases. after waiting for an hour this man was one of the lucky ones his daughter convinced the hospital to admit him most others were turned away elizabeth pradhan al jazeera new delhi the u.s. has recorded a drop in daily vaccinations for the 1st time since february over the past week about 3000000 doses were administered each day and 11 percent decrease from the week before that's despite every american adult being eligible for the shot
12:19 am
officials say efforts need to be ramped up to vaccinate hard to reach groups and address the fears of people who hasn't about getting the job what kind of joins us from washington d.c. so do i know in more detail why the vaccine rate is dropping. well there's a number of theories about that one of which is of course the pores in the supply of the johnson and johnson vaccine which a board will be deciding on whether to resume vaccinations using that later this week but this does not account for such a massive drop and experts are concerned that this is now reaching a tipping point where the supply of vaccine far outstrips the demand now the simple answer to the question is that those who want to be vaccinated have been vaccinated at this particular point some 25 percent of americans are now fully vaccinated close to 50 percent have received at least one shot but polls indicate that there's
12:20 am
as many as 35 percent of americans who are either adopting a wait and see attitude or are simply not going to get the vaccination for political or other reasons so this is the critical point that experts say could prevent the country from reaching the number it would need to create a herd immunity that's roughly around 75 to 80 percent so the way it is going at the moment the u.s. will fall particularly short the efforts now underway to start getting vaccine to people rather than people coming to get the injection but this there's still does not deal with the issue that a substantial number of americans are opposed to the vaccine on particular grounds the majority of them and the republicans it would appear according to the polls and in the meantime it understand that cases arising in some states. indeed yes says being a significant surge in
12:21 am
a number of states many of them in the deep south and there's no. relation clearly between the amount of people vaccinated and the surge in infection but another reason for the surge in infection is the variance that are now creating the majority of new cases each day there are some 4 and a half 1000 deaths over the last week alone so there is a massive surge in a notch a number of states once again these tend to be republican dominated states because of the lack of vaccination and also because of the lack of mitigating measures which has been an issue throughout the. entire pandemic but the issue of the variance certainly playing a major role in creating what is a significant increase in the number of cases of covert mike hanna thank you very much indeed russia has ordered its troops back to their permanent bases after massive drills in crimea and near its border with ukraine the defense ministry says
12:22 am
it's successfully completed its exercises but military hardware will be left behind for another drill later this year nato and ukraine's president vladimir a zelinsky have welcomed the deescalation but both say they'll remain vigilant western powers have been calling on russia to deescalate after its military buildup near the ukrainian border and in crimea russia has also announced that it's closing the curch straight between the black and as of seize 2 ukrainian and other foreign ships until the end of october while sco says it's for naval exercises in the region but kiev calls it a violation of international law just right for joined ukraine's navy on the sea of azoff. mary appalls maritime guard head out across a foggy as see the crews work with ukrainian navy monitoring a russian warships in waters both countries share control of according 282003 maritime agreement but moscow recently deployed 15 was shipped to the azoff sea
12:23 am
from its caspian fleet as part of a vast russian military build up along ukraine's borders in the. us the threat level has been the same since 2014 but in the past week we have seen more ships from the russian fleet including 8 landing craft 3 small artillery boats and other support vessels were about 6 north of the coast ferry off the coast guard vessel just received a message that may not sit around all of. the russians asked the coast guard so i think that by themselves because they concern so they say about conditions in these conditions. we approach one of a number of large even crane in ships in the area monitoring russian naval and commercial shipping movements on the last. name your flag and your route as the voice on the radio. russian flag
12:24 am
coming from the caucuses is the reply russia has also announced the closure of the curch straight to ukrainian and foreign navy ships for the next 6 months because of what it describes as military exercises it says commercial shipping will not be affected the waterway which is around 60 nautical miles from here connects the as off to the black sea off crimea which russia illegally an exciting 2014 kiev has accused moscow of provocations and trying to take control of its maritime borders. almost a little over. 2003 as of c agreement is between ukraine and russia they have rights under that agreement to be closed but when the agreement was signed there was no conflict between us despite moscow announcing on thursday a gradual troop withdrawal from the area its closure of the coach strait will
12:25 am
restrict ukraine's and former navy movements in the region for months to come charles trafford al-jazeera on the as off see. an extent off as a lecture in modern european history especially as is in russia at queen's university belfast he joins us live from belfast so the russian troops are pulling up now but tell us what putin was was doing with this whole exercise. or i think they were saying it was but quite clear there was not just a simple military exercises there was an intention to send a strong message to both ukraine and the west that russia has dominance minister been dormant in the region and that it means business if. somebody tries to cross its red lines rights of both the ukraine. the rebels in don't by and for the west to back off and not encourage ukraine into any kind of provocative moves towards russia so that was the message they were trying to send and what are they what is
12:26 am
the achieved i mean if the withdrawal has happened without apparently ukrainian concessions and and in spite of new u.s. sanctions well what is he actually what has putin the russian achieved with this. well again i think it was kind of issue of messaging the body is concerned 1st of all the message is that as i said russia means business in the area and secondly that this is a very precarious and dendrites situation in a sense that there is still unsolved conflict in dumbos which is one of the kind of it's cold frozen but it's actually very active in terms of ministering gauging them from both sides so what there's a deadlock on the means girls as which russia wants to be implemented because it's says it's a day just to itself and ukraine needs starting on implementing the means so kind of message is you know either you're going to push ukraine to implement the me they means could grievance or there will be going to danger of it's going to minister it's going to asians and that's kind of thing and on that point they've decided to
12:27 am
leave the tanks and the hardware and so on there what would happen if there were a further escalation in that area. what i think as bait a bases around that are a new way and there ought to have an official presence within the rebel a few bytes don boss as well. yeah i mean it's sort of its message is that it's it can raise going to very very very easy to very very rapidly and nor mount all of western world's help or military assistance will make a difference to if we decided to go inside and i think on this particular crisis those of us are clicked clear admission by mr cause of who is the person in charge of the into no external relations including with ukraine. saying that if you grain if the rebels were to fail russia will intervene militarily if they didn't have been telling 2014 and 15 but that was never acknowledged this is the 1st time they
12:28 am
they sat there would do it opened it so i think that kind of upping of the stakes russia and military hardware is just to do emphasize that point and extent of thank you very much indeed thank you. supporters of jailed russian government critic alex and yvonne have heard him to call off his hunger strike is doctors say it would be dangerous to his life if he carries on and on these entering his 4th week without food in protest of not being allowed proper medical treatment he survived a nerve agent poisoning last year that russia denies carrying out. 1500 supporters were detained on wednesday jury widespread protests calling for his immediate release. so is more still to come this hour a race against time in the search for a missing indonesian submarine that's running low on oxygen. and another dark day for press freedom in hong kong as
