. hello i'm time is a. this is counting the cost and i'll just there are look at the world of interest and i cannot make this week 1000000000 as in space. we go beyond tourism to see how the world purchase men are making the grant control, the place, industry, all cows, the new coal. i recall to account for a 3rd of all global greenhouse gases. aware of the target, the cap commission and the mon bronson town lane is all production pollution for killing people use now for decades. space was the preserve of government and accessible only by taxpayer funded rockets. its exploration was politicized by cold war rivalries. that was
1:35 am
the all tourist to occasionally though hitched a ride to help out a cash strapped nation. but in the last month, privateers have wrestled attention away from the government sponsored launches. now, billionaires are accelerating our passion for the heavens. first 70 year old serial and tropic no. richard branson ended his 17 year quest to travel into space on board, his reusable plane. it's not known how much has been spent to reach this stage. but the recently new york listed company burned through $250000000.00 in 2020. however, it doesn't have that. then there's the question as to whether branson actually crossed the threshold for space. the common line. rival billionaire, jeff pays all succeeded in doing that. the world's richest man initially invested $500000000.00 of his own money in 2014. as of 2016,
1:36 am
it's been caching in in is ever increasing amazon stock to spend $1000000000.00 a year on blue origin. and of course there's a lot mosques, space, ex, it's already one contracts and has flown astronauts to the international space station. his company's estimated to be worth $46000000000.00 base off and mosque deploy, re usable rockets, the stuff of science fiction dreams to calm down on the cost of getting men into safe and whatever your feelings about these endeavors. you could argue a lot of money is being wasted by 1000000000. as for other 1000000000 as to enjoy a few minutes of weightlessness, one of the carbon footprint of sending the wealthy into space is also much more to space. according to morgan stanley, the global space industry could generate revenue of more than one trillion dollars in 2040. that's up from the 350000000000 currently. yet it might not be space tourism, that's the cash cow. rather,
1:37 am
satellite internet service may not surprise you. that long mosque is already deploying $1500.00 satellites to blanket the us and provide internet access that could cost up to $10000000000.00 to get it opperation or. but it could bring in revenue of $30000000000.00 a year. it's already in testing, costing $909.00 a month for the subsidized antenna to receive a signal costing $499.00. what's the purpose of that? what are the insatiable appetite for internet links services, and there's more demand coming as autonomous vehicles of rolled out. but they also faces competition from the british government's rival, one way of which was rescued from bankruptcy. and unsurprisingly, virgin galactic is one company that will be using its boost the technology to put satellites into space from a spaceport near you. and one of those sites could be space. port cornwell,
1:38 am
delighted to say the head of the venture, melissa thought, joins us fire skype from true row in the u. k. good. have you with us? so melissa spaceport, cornwall will be a horizontal loan site. right where modified planes will be launching fat flights into orbit y horror zone to launch though? i. yes. so we're going to launches is kind of what we feel is the way forward for satellite launch, because he can use the christine airport and existing runways, anywhere in the world that has a long enough for me way. and here at the airport nuclear, we have a long run way that goes direct over the sea with low residential build up around it. that means that the systems like virgin orbit, who are working with, can take off at the end of the runway, go out over the sea and deploy the rocket mid air. so it's a different way of doing it, but it's, it is using an existing asset, an existing airport, rather than a launch pad, you know, some re really remote or i will tell us more about the 1st launch that's planned in the spring of 2022 with virgin orbit, right?
1:39 am
yes, that's the time about this time next year. actually we're hoping to have her 1st launch with virgin or bet. that will be the 1st launch from u. k. soil ever sold the very exciting for us here in the u. k. and that will be a 3 day event. it's going to be really big festival and celebration of, of the space industry in the u. k. and to get the satellites up to space for the 1st time here because he's never been able to launch from the u. k. we build huge majority of the world small satellites here, but we can't watch them at the moment. so it is a big, big, big opportunity for the u. k. you've also recently signed to deal with sierra space, haven't you? how soon will that translate into a launch? sir? space is a very different system for us, so it will take off vertically somewhere else in the world, but it needs a horizontal spaceport to land that will run way to, to return from space. so that will be their return location where they'll be bringing amazing r and d and research back from microgravity that we can process here in the u. k. and
1:40 am
we're looking at doing that in the next 5 or so years. they're due to have their 1st launch out and in colorado in 2023. so it's a few years away still, but it's something that we're working on the concept of operations for a moment at least find the m l u with them. so the relationship will develop over the next 2 years and we hope to be able to have the landing in the near future. now we've talked a little bit about satellites. what about space tourism? could we see that from spaceport at the moment? we're just focused on satellite launch. that's hard enough. i would say get up and running for the 1st time. that will be really focusing on that over the next few years. but human space flight and base tourism being part of that is, is all really exciting and gets all the headline for us. i think the future will be human space flight elements. so looking at that microgravity research, putting more humans and researchers into space to test different health care solutions. up in lower orbit, i think is a really exciting opportunity. and space tourism, who knows as a,
1:41 am
as the market develops and is more launch popping over the in the us. maybe that's something that you might look to do in the future. but you know, hats off to the companies doing it because we know how difficult it is and congratulations, obviously to blue origin and introvert. blocked it. he did recently. we've seen a lot of billionaires in the headlines recently. you're right about that. would the commercialization of space, the progress that's taking place with any of that be possible without 1000000000 as like branson mosque and bays off? you know, i think it's actually taking place of what governments used to do in the space industry, government, and state lead enterprises used to put most of the funding into space. and now what you're seeing in the new space industry today is entrepreneurs, billionaires and private companies actually doing a lot of the pioneering activity. and i think that's really interesting for the industry because what you're seeing is, is new entrance into the market with, obviously different ideas, different background, different industries, making the most, the space to help benefit life here on earth. so i think the r pioneering and
1:42 am
they're opening up space and access to space for, for more businesses and more people. so i think it is a good thing. is it worth it? is the carbon footprint the worth it for? what? for at least some of it when we talk about space tourism is going to be alton at least some might say about putting billionaires in space to have a little bit of fun. i think there's 22 sides to that story. i think the impact of launch has been something that's been quite secret over the years. and that's something that we're trying to change here at home. also responsible launched, launching these technologies to space cleaner and greener. i think it's something that baseboards around the world need to be challenged on, and that's something that we want to be doing here. but also, i think you put some of the most influential people into space and that overview effects. they call it for them to see the curvature of the earth and maybe challenge and change their perceptions about their activities on earth. i think could be actually really powerful. i think this to side. so i think if we decrease the impact of that launch work together all not, but also, you know,
1:43 am
trying to have a reason for these people going to space and that they'll come back to earth and maybe make some change in an action to climate change. that's hope so it's always good to be optimistic. space tourism has grabbed a lot of the headlines recently, but it's unexpected to be in a $1000000000.00 industry right. when you look at the total value of the space industry right now, $350000000000.00, it's obviously just a drop in the bucket. what is the rest of the bucket made up of one of the biggest markets there for space? i, it's pretty much everything we do in daily life, modern life. now here it's from going getting money out of an atm, ordering prescriptions on line to health care, agriculture and driverless tractors and making other industries more efficient from space technology. that's where the value of space really is. so going and getting better access to space for satellite for space technology is huge because we can get some, these in amazing innovative technology to where they need to be. and to make our
1:44 am
lives on earth more efficient and also to provide the imagery and unbiased information from space about earth, down to change policy and to influence policy to start to tackle from the biggest global challenges that we have. so i think the real value based as exciting is the tourism side is the real value is, is, is benefiting life on earth with making our lives more efficient and, and more environmentally friendly. these technologies is space safer in the hands of 1000000000 as making a grab for what is ultimately a trillion dollar market. i mean, may be the richest people on earth, but they don't always have the best track records in people business management, i think from opening up space commercially messing with all these new entrants, whether it's billionaires or businesses. but you can't forget that there still are still a domain of governments. i think the united nation, for instance, is working credibly hard on getting some fundamental policies to go into space that
1:45 am
we protect democracy and space and we protect peace in space. and that's something that i think the industry is actually collectively working on together. and from what i've seen, you know, it is, it is moving in a positive direction, but there still is a lot of work to be done on how space will be used. and who, you know, fundamentally is, is responsible for their practices and space. and we see that space, debris, front tense, and that's something that is starting to change in a positive way. so i think it is up to us the spaceport to maybe be as a gateway space of what we are putting into space and have a responsibility there as well. so i think the ethics of space is something that is, is growing and moving in the right direction. but like i said, a lot of work to be done. all right, thanks so much for talking to us, melissa. i'll thank you. the people in a small town in southern iraq say pollution from all production is killing them. blaming the process of gas flaring,
1:46 am
that's when oil is extracted and access the natural gas is burned off, releasing c o 2 and me thing. the rocky government is investing billions in an attempt to use the gas for electricity. but as natasha name reports from the village in basra, many say it's already too late. people living in the village of butler take visitors here. they say gas flaring from oil production decimated their generations old palm trees leaving behind nothing but trunks. when we met the village elders, they said every one, know someone who is diagnosed with or who has died from cancer. so i know i already have cancer and only god helps me. we continue to be worried about our families and loved ones. the bus for health department in southern iraq says the pollution from oil production is making people and animals in the area sick. the rocky high
1:47 am
commission for human rights says, due to the high rate of cancer in basra, it's demanding the government work with oil companies to combat pollution. that is, will stop all of the for 6 or 7 years every 2 years. there is some charlene political, german security, german gas is long term investment. it needs some stuff and it needs some cash come, which meant the world bank ranks. iraq, number 2 behind russia when it comes to gas flaring, instead of polluting the air, the gas could be recovered and sold or used to generate electricity for millions of people. the bus or gas company is investing $3000000000.00 to do just that. at the romanella oil field, iraq's largest, anything that the iraqi government can do, or it's neighbors can do to create in a stable environment, is good for capturing more gas and for creating a better environment for the iraqi people. the people of butler say the land,
1:48 am
their families have been tied to for 200 years, is toxic, and they wonder how many more of them will get sick before the government can help them. natasha game, l. jazeera basra, iraq, ah cows, the new coal. that's the question. a 40 trillion dollar investor network is asking why? because farming represents a 3rd of all harmful greenhouse emissions, yet no. gee, 20 country has a plan to cut them. balancing jobs and livelihoods is proving a tough cell for government. thousands of farmers recently protested in the netherlands against the government effort to cut nitrogen emissions. intensive, agriculture and fertilizer use have made the netherlands one of europe, the largest emitters, stefan and reports from the hague. the not an unusual sight in the madeleine to be tracked was on the streets of the hague,
1:49 am
joining a protest as the police try to block them, it becomes clear that stopping a tractor isn't easy. we hope that the government will understand that the netherlands can't exist without farmers, the netherlands need. farmers. we are producing the most sustainable food bill. right. so without us, i don't know who will feed all these people after milking his cows. dairy farmer, young phone levin left his farm to get some answers from the government for generations. his family as farmed in an area where experts now say there is no future for large farms. it's just not sustainable. if a government target of nitrogen emission reduction is to be met via the most, so don't want the environment to be polluted. there is no debate about dots, but not the netherlands wants to take drastic steps and farmers are 1st to be targeted. and i am concerned that in 10 years when funds are gone, we will regret this. like more than 50000 dutch farmers. his 17 year old son,
1:50 am
tom was keen to continue to farm has no idea what lies ahead. this young farm was driving 4 hours on the track to the certainty about their future ecologists. and why a man increasingly, patients have to wait farming, as we know it in the netherlands, can't exist any longer. a message many here. i'm not ready to hear. and here you see a lot of dead trees and dying trees with fairly low facility with fairly low leaves, an expert on the effect of nitrogen emissions research roland bobbing, wrote an alarming report for greenpeace. his conclusion, large parts of the dutch ecosystem have been so badly affected, that there will be lost if the government does not act. now. i think it's fairly urgent and i, meaning you can do it in one or 2 years. you need maybe 5 to 10 years, a really high reduction of their nights and their position,
1:51 am
maybe 50 to 70 percent. and therefore you need to different echoes whole system in the netherlands, greenpeace, have threatened to take the dutch stay to court for violating european regulations . if the government does not reduce nitrogen emissions much further amidst all the pressure, some farmers are starting to realize that business as usual, won't be an option for much longer. pharmacy organization thing, billions of years and needed to save dutch farms and make them environmental friendly, steadfast, and al jazeera bake. reaching net 0 missions will be impossible without a radical overhaul of the agricultural sector says my next guest. kenny quandary is the head of investor outreach at the fair initiative, which represents investors with 40 trillion dollars on the management could have you with us 20. so why have g 20 nations left out any plans for
1:52 am
a cause of emissions from farming? yes, great to be here. thanks for having me saw me. well, 1st of all, just wanting to rent nuts. climate obviously is a huge issue that was facing globally. and since inception of that we have been looking at climate respect, then we'll focus on that. and we've been seeing that companies are doing more about trying to engage on this topic. and investors as well. we just need regulators to step forward and do a little bit more here as well. now in terms of why the g 20 nations have left this out, i think it's more that historically it has been a really difficult sector when it comes to the colonizing. obviously it has very close links with livelihood and income for a majority of people. and also there is still a lack of disclosure and it's been difficult and things like she tried to measure climate impact and measuring mission and trying to understand who is responsible for specifically what kinds of kinds of emission. and so what we're saying is that the need to be a significant reduction and the significant reductions are in fact possible. but we
1:53 am
just need it to be best. governments and policy makers. the regulators are really starting to put that i've listened address display. so we say, when you say the needs to be reductions, what are we talking about, what they need to do, what they need to con? yes. well, there's so much that there's so many different areas, but in a culture that can be reduced by mission moody. so if you think about the feed that they give the animals, for example, trying to reduce the emissions that actually generated within the animal. when you think about the volume of animal that's being produced, we have found that over the last year there was actually been an increase in emissions from, from animal agriculture. and really that is lucky as a pocket result of the fact that more animals will be produced. and so missing about a that needs to be an adoption of electric vehicles for example. and really trying to stop the mission that happen. so there are lots of areas in the production of the animal and animal protein that we could start to see reductions happen. we just
1:54 am
need to see that as more regulations or more incentivize ation of bama strike to do things like this is a happy balance between livelihoods and farming emissions. absolutely. i believe that there is, it's not that we look like that because, i mean, i haven't called you a big money generator, isn't that exactly it is. and so that's why i think of going back to in terms of the emissions coming from the sector. that's why so much needs to be done in terms of if we're going to meet the pass agreement, let's make sure agriculture pops about solution as well. because it is a huge money generator, but it is also shoot behind the missing as well. so it needs to be that balance between life because of the mission, but not all factory. not all animal bombing needs, the end needs me that we are empowering palm, is to be part of building a more robust and sustainable solution. so where we've seen that by them, for example, that ministration binding administration announcing $30000000000.00 of incentive to
1:55 am
farmers when it comes to carbon capture or last week we have the u. k. master such g announce which is again, incentivizing bomb is to actually be part the building the sustainable system. so it's the cap soil improvement, blood prevention, carbon tech restoration. so that promise feel that they are part of the solution as well. and on the flip side, we also have to recognize that with the huge emissions that we see that is that the increase in climate risk, which is impacting likelihoods already. so in texas, you seen about to just under $230000000.00 of losses this year. from due to the flooding that we seen, there been at the animal distress on the animals. and so the heat stress leading to the best of animals means that this is already costing farmers that livelihood. which is why that needs be more response in terms of trying to address the emissions from this area. i'm glad you mentioned animals there. if we look at some of the figures on this 2340000000 tons of meat globally produced every year. how do
1:56 am
we convince people to change their diet? i think it's making sure that people feel that they are being dictated to. i think if there's one thing that has come out globally from the last 18 months is that people do not want to deal with the choices are being asked to be taken away from them and they're being restricted more and more. so we need to make sure that people are more informed and that they've given choices, but it has to be able to make an informed decision on what is that they are consuming. whether in this case, look at food all or anything else. great. when it comes to the kids and services that we need to survive and thrive. so i think that it's helping so that supermarket, but supermarkets as well as regulators are playing that part and giving consumers information they need. so all we actually aware of the reduction of the health benefits, for example, that has when you reduce your meet consumption, as well as the environmental benefits that comes with that as well. so then me see the shift away from dictating and saying consumers must do this on,
1:57 am
must not do that, but helping them to see what all those at this. how can we move towards a more cloud based diet, and what benefit to about have people who are climate and for the animals as well? the more successful though, that sort of message is tenny. the less income revenue there will be for big beef supplies world like argentine in brazil. what kind of proposal do you have for them? well, we are seeing already that they are stopping. understand that the shift is happening and so it pops. it's almost the case of we'll get from board the ship to get left behind. you are seeing more, more of the plot basal choices thought to really move up the agenda when it comes to consumers, purchasing power. and you see, for example, in the u. s. over at last year i think that was about the 200 percent increase in plot base products me bought back. and so you think these big be players thought to move towards satisfying that need as well, that they're not losing out some the new customers,
1:58 am
the potential revenue promotability best. but they're stopping to set up our own plant based proceed products as well, and own plant based brought brands as well. and so as we see, this thought happened, more of them more to be produced. black c stuff, recognize that this is something that they need to be involved in as well, in order to make sure they are part of that. they are strategically moving in the right direction for the future of what consumers actually picking and choosing to do it that wallet as well. or i've been lovely talking to you. thanks so much for coming to a shout any guess has been great being here. thank you so much and that's our show for this week. there's more for you online though down here or dot. com slash p t. c. that'll take you straight to our page, which has in time for you to catch up on. i'm sammy's a than from the counting the team here. thanks for joining us. the news and i'll just, sarah, is next the becoming a living legend of
