destroyed. they have nothing left to eat or drink. the unprecedented levels come after 24 hours of uninterrupted rain, which has caused the fish, the river just north to overflow. the state chief minister is promising to do whatever it takes to help people through the disaster. that's why those are the ones we will do. what do i take to save lives and property will not, the disaster has the entire state in the east to abolish in the west. the lanes have been unprecedented and we are facing an unexpected emergency filled up all with a combined rescue operation is underway with the army coast guard and national disaster response force. taking part and in the navy has deployed helicopters to evacuate those stranded. it also has rescue boats and expert divers efforts to reach the thousands of people stranded are still being hampered by high water levels and landslides, blocking off major roads, cutting access to hundreds of villages,
even for those whose properties have been spared. for now, there is another scare. good bodies doubled by neither. if the water is released from the dam today and the rainfall continues water, me and try our homes. red alerts have been issued with heavy rainfall expected to continue for a few more days, but saves further south are also facing dangers with rivers overflowing. seasonal monsoons provide more than 70 percent of the nation's annual rainfall, a lifeline for india's farmers who make up much of the country's economy. they also contribute to mass displacement with the impact on the growing worse by the effects of climate change. for residents of red novelty, those effects are already being felt. first, move out there. and so i phone is full cause to bring heavy rains to taiwan and coastal china this weekend. authorities have put some regions on highlight. the one
incomes days off to record flooding and the chinese province killed at least $51.00 people. a major cleanup operation is underway and the worst in city of young jo. other cities in the region are under red, alert as rescue team search for survivors. turning to those wall fires in the u. s . now, emergency service is a more than 5 and a half 1000 square kilometers. are ablaze across the country. thousands of people have had to evacuate the homes idea who castro has more from washington. the view from inside an inferno firefighters narrowly escape this blaze, which has scorched 125 square kilometers in nevada and california. it's one of at least $83.00 large fires burning across the western united states. it is just stoic, streamline hot and dry fuels are at record or near record levels of dryness. the lack of moisture means everything is ready. everything is explosive. in northern
california. the dixie fire has reached mega fire status, forcing people near lake el mano, to evacuate el, just trying to stay calm, not panic, and just, you know, fill up your car with gas and take care of the good business. i. the dramatic start of the u. s. wildfire season comes with the drought amplified by climate change. the dry conditions have helped fuel this fire in oregon, it's the nation's largest and responsible for the destruction of at least 70 home so far. the impacts so big it's creating its own weather pattern, sending smoke across country to the east coast, contributing to hazy sky lines as far away as new york city. hot temperatures and high winds are also responsible for the fires with little respite predicted as the american summer continues heidi joe castro al jazeera washington. the u. s.
government who's giving us stock $100000000.00, an emergency assistant. some of that money will go towards helping those displaced by the recent spike and violence. that's all the bonds been seizing. more territory is american troops of pulling out present. joe biden, and his connect counterpart spoke on the phone on friday. now, biden assured, i should have gone in the us will provide development assistance in the future. early on friday, the taliban warned. there will be no peace of honest on until a new government is formed. a spokesman said the group will not stop fighting until after president sharp. connie is removed. earlier this week, the u. s. as my senior general said, the group now controls off about kindness on districts. despite having withdrawal troops, the us has been carrying at strikes to help africa and government diploma to get it's a james base has more from cobble certainly what everyone wants, i think on the international community is some way to have
a negotiated settlement between the african government and the taliban some way of sharing power and what they'd like is to restart those talks that have been taking place in doha and currently adjourned. great deal of effort to try and get that back on track and get that going. there has been a meeting recently with the deputy heads of the taliban political office in doha of the salon. happy and representatives of diplomats from the e u u s u n. and catherine. now many of those diplomats, in addition to getting the talk started, think that the best atmosphere for the talks is to have a cease for the taliban reluctant to have a c spot. at this stage, they say the proposals that the african government have put on the table so far are unacceptable. they won't not want reconciliation, but they won't start entering. they won't come
come n harbor, see spider and we will continue our waterman as it is. so that's the also not realistic approach not to pragmatic approach. it is necessity, that all of one should have are, should eagerly, upon, i knew god meant. and that was meant what to replace the new this couple administration. and that was meant will be acceptable for us. and to add that up month candidate says it will begin a special immigration process. afghans who helped coalition forces in afghanistan. i've got interpreters and local staff, along with families will be allowed to enter and stay in canada. the u. s. is also offered a similar program. the united nations and nato countries have been under pressure to find a solution, gone through them in the so called war on terror. my department is implementing
expeditiously special immigration measures that will offer a pass to protection in canada for those at risk due to their work. those eligible will include but are not limited to interpreters who worked with the canadian forces during the combat mission locally engaged staff. currently, or previously employed at the canadian embassy and their families. i would point out that these special measures are in addition to prior special immigration measures which helped us to resettle roughly $800.00 afghani afghans. as well as other efforts which are already underway to aid targeted and persecuted minorities with a pathway to canada, including africa, seeks who are outside of afghanistan and haiti gunshots were heard as president, germany mice. his funeral service is getting underway. on friday, foreign dignitaries had brought, had to be rushed to safety. demonstrations have repeatedly turn violence while he
was assassinated at his home on july 7th. and he got the car revolts even before the funeral of 53 rolls. you have no ma, we've got underway. tensions in cap patient run high protests seeking unanswered questions and angry with the nations ruling class took to the streets many here hoped my weakness funeral would help men diffraction nation instead of unity. that deep suspicion over who killed me are we and why we the haitian people are demanding justice for the president. and we are saying that we do not agree to bury the president because they did not arrest the real culprit. we are blocking the entire northern department since the death, the president. i have not made any money. sam, despite security concerns, dignitaries from across the americans gathered to pay their respects to the former president. as services got underway, gunshots rang out for some dignitaries, including those from the us and the un to be rushed to the safety of the vehicles,
the assassination of job. no, but we says left, this for you on nation. really? but on friday, those closest to him, paid tribute, visibly shaken. martino is still recovering from our injuries after the assassination corporate justice was more didn't work. that's why he's wanting to democratize a sin. how his fighting for equal opportunities to enter the civil service, the come condemned bull to his haitian brothers. if you cross your arms and just look at the executioners, blood will not cease to flow. today it is jovan elma, we've got to morrow. who will it be? it will be him, it will be, may, it will be our research in the wake of my research fascination on july, the 7th, a core group of foreign nations back arial unread to take the reins is haiti's, new prime minister. the international community is pushing for elections, which haven't successfully taken place in more than 4 years, with a barely functioning senate and a dissolved parliament that will be an easy task. the launch haitian community here

o. s. and the stand up for the country, a date for elections has not been set security, instability for now a more pressing issues in this trouble nation. gala corolla, missouri, miami, florida. so ahead our desert environment, let's say the fires plus heat waves and storm things so far in 2021 are being driven by climate change. and there are grim signed up to come and lebanon's crisis hits, hospitals, they're running out, feel putting the lives of patients with risk. ah your other update begins in south america where we could be looking at record breaking temperatures for assault me on 34 degrees. the old record is 33.4. now if
you don't do it on saturday, i think you will sunday, because we've got your right back up at 35 before those temperatures take a big tumble on 2 stages. the high of 17 degrees. further toward the south, we've got our usual bouts of storms crushing into southern chillies and snow for the southern elves. put a rain as a high of 6 degrees on saturday. next step, central america. and you know, we're tracing some very particularly heavy bouts of what weather customer rico rate through to panama. elsewhere for the caribbean, just our usual storms popping up punta cana. 34 degrees will be the high for you for the u. s. gulf states. this is really been the theme over the last few days, some heavy rain toward louisiana, mississippi rate down into southern areas of florida. so yes, this is impacting miami. here's a bit of good news across arizona. we know more than 20 wildfires burning, but the north american bar soon is going to give us some heavy bouts of what
weather for the state on saturday. and you know, for canada we've got some storms moving across the canadian province of ontario. so that will impact her on the dead, john, virtually racing, comfortable and dominating international competition. when i went south korea's musical prodigy ah, one out of 0. ah al jazeera ah ah all me ah, ah ah,
you're watching l. just a reminder of our top story. police and have here fi, take out some protesters just outside the compound with a funeral of assassinated president jovan. noise was taking place and he was killed at his home loans helix. us emergency service is a more than 5 and a half 1000 square kilometers. replace across the country. thousands of people have had to evacuate the homes. the fire season is being made worse by long and severe drought and heavy monsoon rains if you're going to flood demand slides in western india, kevin, at least a 100 people. the state of the restaurant is the worst hit. at least 30 people are still missing. now let's bring in, we'll stephane, he's a counselor, the climate council of australia. he's also a climate change experts in the australian national university. he joins us from
cambra now. well, we're seeing a very diverse and very dramatic range of weather. events, floods fires, extreme heat. what does this got to do with climate change? well, a very different, as you know, but they do have one common root cause that is climate change. climate change is increasing the energy content of the atmosphere by tapping more heat. that means that the conditions are getting hotter, but it also means that other extremes, both ends drought and he'll be rain are also becoming more extreme. so this means that when you have drought, most of your drop couple with high temperatures, it makes forest really much for prone to burn, which is why we're seeing such dramatic and large fires now in western north america. at the same time, because the atmosphere is holding more water vapor, it increases the odds that will see extreme rainfalls, which are happening. of course in western india have also played china and europe
just in the last week or so. so yes, there's a very, very good and strong body of scientific evidence to say that extreme weather events across the board are becoming more extreme because the climate change. so what's the long term trend and what's, i mean, are we going to see more of this? and is it too late to do anything about that? it certainly will. they will become more common. the 16 events spend more severe in the next decade or 2. that's because it's going to take us at least that long to get our emissions trending down towards 0. so certainly up till 20302035 more greenhouse gases will accumulate in the atmosphere, which means more heat will be trapped and more severe weather will occur. and will become more, more extreme. this means that we must prepare for this. we must learn to adapt to it and anticipating something we're going to have to live with at least for the next couple of decades. well, that seems to be quite an optimistic assessment, given the fact that what i've been reading,
what people have been speaking to us all i had at al jazeera, the actually went past the point of no return. so you think there is still a chance? yeah, look, i think so. it's really right, but we're reaching a balance point here. my view is, is that we're going to bridge $1.00. what was lower paris target? but we still, i think can limit the temperature rise to below 2 degrees. and we actually must do that, but there is no doubt that we will, if we want to have a chance of doing that, we actually must get our emissions trending downward strongly. this decade in my view, globally, we need to, i cut them in half by 2030 and hit 0 emissions a decade or so. that isn't cheap book. it's a huge challenge and we've got to get moving on it very fast. for those who are more pessimistic than i am, they may be proof proven to be right. i think the next 5 or 10 years will tell us what, which direction we're heading. we'll stuff on the end camera. thank you very much.
thank you. my pleasure. leverage facing it's worth crisis in modern history, unemployment on the currency crash of decimated living standards. and now on top of severe medicine shortages, hospitals are running out of fuel. the economic collapse has led to power cuts that can last up to 20 hours a day. and that's putting lives at risk. then the reports from buried. these generators are a lifeline for hospitals in a country where state electricity cuts last most of the day, but they're running low on diesel fuel. lebanon is an economic and political turmoil, and the state is nearly bankrupt. doctors warned the health sector is close to collapse with all the what's going on with the shortages, whether in human resources, whether in medications, whether in supplies, and on top of that now fuel electricity and more of a case is coming in. i'm believable that the hospitals are still able to it's not
just hospitals bakeries to say if they don't receive diesel fuel in a few days, they will have to close the state electricity company has all but stopped providing power. already the sector was crumbling from years of neglect, but in recent weeks rationing has been severe. we rely on candles. there is no electricity and i can't afford to pay private generator owners. many no longer can afford basic food since the local currency crashed. prices have increased by 50 percent this month alone. the price is very controlled by many factors, including the exchange rates or the dollar depending on the black market prices for fuel and for diesel. you know, we have market, we have to have electricity, 247. the black market has taken advantage of states subsidies on basic goods including medicine, many of which has been missing for months. many blame this for the crisis board 11
to do something when we started, i think they would be out of market because one of the number one and even if they were the subsidies, but they would sort of broad market. merchants have been blamed for hoarding supported goods or smuggling them to neighboring syria or other countries. mama lacey's element, we can't find any med since there's no electricity. food is so expensive. every aspect of life has been affected by the unprecedented economic and financial meltdown. water supply is likely to be affected by the collapse of the power grids . the united nations says water pumping could gradually seize within 4 to 6 weeks. the country is falling apart, its blamed on decades of corruption and mismanagement by a political class still in power. the solution many say requires a government ready to fight just that, that their elders, either beirut,
more than 4000000 people in lebanon, including 1000000 refugees or risk of losing access to safe water. the agency for children estimates water will start pumping in $4.00 to $6.00 weeks and it leads at least $40000000.00 a year to keep it flowing across the country. more than 4000000 people, including 1000000 refugees, are immediate risk of losing access to state water in the lebanon. that's according to unicef. with the rapidly escalating economic crisis shortage of the funding, fuel and flies that chlorine and spare parts, you just have to estimate the most water pumping will gradually cease across the country in the next 4 to 6 weeks. in the public water supply system glasses, unit estimates the water costs good skyrocket by 200 percent a month. when securing water from alternative or private water suppliers. $140.00 palestinians been injured in the occupied westbank during protest against the legal

they're expected to announce that they will take all us come troops out of iraq by the end of this year. but the foreign minister has been telling the press that he still needs the us military to do intelligence and surveillance. do training to fly for air power. air power is in fact combat. and that's pretty much what us troops are doing in iraq right now. and sources in the putting say they don't expect that the numbers gonna change very much right now. they have 2500 troops in you, in iraq and, but they're not always supporting the mission in iraq. they're also supporting the $900.00 or so troops, us troops that are in syria. so we are respect that mission is going to change very much. this is being seen widely as a political move to try and help the iraqi prime minister in the run up to the next election. water shortages in southern lead to protest for over a week. at least one person was shot dead on thursday into others injured in the stone province, security for the se, unknown gunman open fire,
protest as drought conditions in the region of been worse and by nation wide shortages blamed on us sanctions. iran supreme leader is calling on officials to deal with the crisis. the u. n. has decided not to classify the great barrier reef as means they endangered heritage site. this is despite the evidence that shows it's under threat from climate change in global and coral bleaching. the activist group green pieces condemning your struggling government for lobbying, against having it granted the protected status. 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 an australian government that he's doing nothing credible to tackle the number one cause of the process of the very race which is climate change people of the world have every right to be mystified by a striking and government that the spot?
35000000 is of astronomy of being burned in the bright fires, and 60 percent of the great barriers being impacted by the 3 mass bleaching events . record droughts, a 1000000 dead fish in australia is great. murray darling bison system that steal the strike in government is one of the world's worst lag on climate action. selena ward is a coral reef scientist, a senior lecture of the university of queensland. she says this talk to the straining government to take climate change seriously. but there's absolutely no gas to great buried under to be a threat. and the daughter is there, it's from only a strained government organizations as well as all the universities making this very clean, very few, still beautiful. and we can still save it, but we are getting more frequent mess, bleaching events, which, 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 threats there, 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 emissions now, actual target we government also aggressively chases new fossil fuel development, which i think in the current climate is absolutely unforgivable. so they are seeking new call. mine's new gas developments and even using funding for renewables to try and fuel. so whilst
the strike is a fairly small country population was. 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. ah, there's out there and these other top stories, heavy monsoon rains have triggered floods and land slides in western india, killing at least 100 people. the state of my heart is the worst hit and at least 30 people are missing. didn't garcia have? i had 3 vehicles, all of them got some most in flood water. they are old damaged. the furniture inside my house and outside also got damage. i have suffered a loss of around 10000.
