al jazeera bulwark, conseula natal, respond threads from climate change and poor water quality. australia is great, barrier reef will not be classified as an endangered world heritage site. will trailers, government low beat against the proposed this thing? not doing it needed more time. the $21.00 nation world heritage committee ignored unesco scientific assessment, which said the reef is on the thrift. instead, unesco will now carry out and assessment mission and a strategy it will have to send a progress report by february. greenpeace has condemned destroyers government. this is a product of one of the most cynical lobbying if it's a recent years in which truth has been sacrificed for the political appearances of a struggle in government that he's doing nothing credible to tackle the number one cause of the process of very race which is climate change people of the world have
5:26 am
every right to be mystified by a striking and government that the spot 55000000 is of a strategy of being burned in the right 5 and 60 percent of the barriers being impacted by the 3 massive bleaching events. record droughts, a 1000000 dead fish strategies. great. murray, darling bison system that still the strategy in government is one of the world's worst lag on climate action. felina award is a coral reef scientist and a senior lecturer at the university of queens. and she says it's time to be a stranger and government to take climate change. seriously. there's absolutely no doubt that the great barrier is under the threat. and the daughter is there, it's from only a strained government organizations as well as all the universities, making it very clear, very few still beautiful and we can still save it,
5:27 am
but we are getting more frequent mess. bleaching events which will, which frequently result in large mortality on the rave. we have what a quality problem we're industrialized in the coastline of the great barrier reef, which adds to water quality problems. so is the threat as we've lost considerable sections of the great barrier reef. and if we don't take very dramatic action on climate change, we will get more and more bleaching events and the race will not have time to recover. the federal government has an calling record on climate change. not only do we have aspiration to 0 emission is not actual target, but we government also aggressively chases new fossil fuel developments, which i think in the current climate is absolutely unforgivable. so they are seeking new call, mine's new gas developments,
5:28 am
and even using funding for renewables to try and fuel so well, the strategy, yeah, is a fairly small country population. why so our missions huge is a global plan. if we consider the emissions of the big coal mine that have proposed and the gas developed and then we can become a much more important player globally. so our government really needs to step up and take con, change seriously. i of her years delay the tokyo 2020 some lympics are officially opened in a city reeling under a new wave of corona, virus infections and a state of emergency athletes for more than 200 nations will compete. but without spectators, japanese tennis stop or soccer, that the limpid coltrane and the rich that have more from tokyo. but at least we

5:30 am
well opening ceremonies like them, a load them have always been a part of the games ever since. they came back in 1896, a chance for the whole nation to showcase all of that culture national identity, but rarely as a whole. nation had such itself balancing act, so pull off like tokyo house and to try and get public opinions to turn and shift in favor of these olympics. ah, what the headlines on al jazeera, heavy monsoon rains have triggered floods and lance lives in western india, killing at least 100 people. the state of her astra, the worst has at least 30 people, is still missing. the didn't got a letter. i had 3 vehicles, all of them got some most in flood water. they are all damaged. the furniture inside my house and outside also got damage. i have suffered a loss of around $10000.00.
