12:04 am
the house like this. not, not, not the one. i want more than 85. why fire? how broken out is, what is the $74.00 of them are under control, but the course the progress is awesome on. yeah, on top of the messing moolah, and even there are still trying to put out for lames, we are in my now got which along with our 2nd is on 30 as worst hit this rate to fight fighters have been killed during operations here. while many people have been taken to hospital at least 25 willis and this weeks or even created and other if i was in mamma is, has killed at 25 years old woman here who was trying to take lincoln water to the emergency crews. the fire wiped out life stockton area has local stock of to lead her to safety. hundreds of homes have been this voice was heavily damaged. but the turkey for the minister says, how is on the way?

cuz me a demo. let it buy ship to the out and i need to buy it and you might tend to get it. we'll start partial payments to our citizens who have suffered damage to their properties. and we have begun transferring a total of $2700000.00 from various institutions and ministries for emergency need . and antelli as min. i've got district and i said it was fires. are common turkeys, mediterranean, and age and regions during the dry summer months. alternatives have yet to determine the cause of this fires. sub shipping, we are considering the possibility of sabotage and any other sources of the fire starter and we will carry out the investigation to provide answers to these. we will not give up and we have all the answers that are concerned. they may be attacks targeting the heart of the turkish tourism industry. the extent of the destruction will become clear once the was fires are extinguished. but for doors in
12:06 am
the fact that regions it will likely take some to recover, repealed press will started out just 0. my now got argentina has declared a 180 day water emergency now for the parent river. this is one of the most important waterways in south america because it connects argentina bar quiet and brazil. but it is storage lea, low levels. as algeria stories bone, our ports from argentina, as santa fe province. i'm here in the city over the side of the province on sunday for about 3 hours away from the capital. and this river that you can see right behind me is that by an around 80 percent of argentine, us exports leave the country through this river over 4000 ships like mechanical ships that you can see right behind me started through this area. what's happening here? right now is that this river has hit a historic low. it should be 3 meters higher,
12:07 am
that it is right now. we're told by experts that are around 6000 cubic meters are being lost at this point. every 2nd of the part of the river right now, and this has a huge it back to an argentine of exports or now generation of electricity, among other issues that are happening right now. and that's why the government of america fernandez, has declared the water emergency for a 180 days to assist producers among others of those affected by what's happening in the country. right now we traveled through the pad and now to find out what's exactly going on. it's almost 5000 kilometers in length, making it their 2nd longest river in south america. but now the water in the fight and i river you said its lowest in almost 80 years due to lack of rainfall. miami now own the camping area on the riverbank. she used to have to use a boat to move around, but not anymore. i don't know,
12:08 am
she will say during the summer there was a bit more walter, so we had more people but you cannot reach this area walking. we don't have a lot of war. the river is crucial for argentina's economy with millions of tons of grain, beef, and other agriculture exports passing through here. this place where i'm standing is in the middle of the river, there's no water left only sand. this is also part of one of the organ tina main export ships are being forced to leave around 30 percent of their cargo because of lack of water. the main concern for local people here is that the situation could get even worse. the file columbo is part of a group of environmental lawyers fighting for the future of the river museum. i think that was at a more less climate change whether alterations, extraordinary drought combined with scarce rainfall. we have to put it in context with what has been happening in the region. we're in the heart, argentine has agricultural belt and we know that to has an impact on the
12:09 am
environment. the last time the river was this low was in 1944 and many fear a return of the land mean. yeah. phenomenon. weather pattern that generates intense storms in some places and routing, others, environmental group say deforestation, and forest fires in argentina. but i why, as well as brazil, i, when packing the river, i love any send you serious fires and deforestation in the amazon means you're diminishing the amount of vegetation that generates evaporation and puts moisture back into the air. if the situation continues, we'll see more sharp changes in the weather. we are concerned about what's happening in brazil because the parents, river and others originate in brazil. the government is urging people to limited their water use as preserving the piano has become a priority for all in big business and those who live alongside it. and this is happening at a very special time for this country,
12:10 am
are not totally fighting up. and it's also fighting a massive economic crisis. poverty rates are on the right. inflation is a major concern, a double digit inflation rates. argentina is currently negotiating, performing that with the international monetary fund over $40000000000.00 of flooring debt. so there's a main concern of what's happening to exports in argentina. that's why the government declared that water emergency for a 180 days. and there's not a concern about what could happen in the next 2 months if the water levels do not increase in rainfall. does not increase then this could have certainly an enormous impact. no tony, on exports, but also on those who depend on this river to make a living well more than 60000000 people across 20 us day to subject to official heat warnings. now, as temperatures rise to near record levels of pacific northwest in the southeast of the united states are experiencing temperatures close to 40 degrees. last month,
12:11 am
the heat wave killed hundreds of people. one recent study says record breaking he waves might become 2 or $2.00 to $7.00 times more frequent, around the world. over the next few decades. the heat we experience read around the 4th of july. we can just before the 4th drive, we can with abnormal, for a couple reasons. one in terms of just the intensity of record breaking heat, but also the duration of it. so probably a big difference between then and now we had about 7 or 8 days worth of 100 degree or nearly a 100 degree days or tomba cars and environmentalists and chairperson of e 3, g, so generation environmentalism enjoyed us now from here in london via skype and tom, i'm, i'm interested to know what goes through your mind. we've just been looking at images of destruction, devastation pretty much everywhere from the us to europe, to parts of asia. i mean, we've seen people losing their lives in india and china,
12:12 am
and many more people are missing. and then there's also the loss of, of livelihood. what, how much more, how much more volatile or even deadly could these conditions become a lot is short answer. we are now experiencing the effects of a rise in global average temperatures of about 1.2 degrees. if we don't stop burning fossil fuels, then by the middle of a century, we will be living in a world that's well over 2 degrees. and if we continue to burn fossil fuels, beyond that point, the world will go on getting hotter and the kind of phenomena we're saying now. unprecedented, but not completely unexpected phenomena that are going on all over the world, will just become more and more intense. and they're just reaction to people's lives . daily lives will get more and more acute, more of the pictures you've just been showing. why do you say, natalie expected?
12:13 am
because we've been hearing exactly what might happen from the climate scientists for at least the last 3540 years. what we are seeing now is what they told us 30 years ago. what happened if we didn't take urgent action to keep greenhouse gases out of the atmosphere? and exactly as they forecast were saying the rise in temperature. but what even more alarming is the temperature is pretty much exactly rising as they suggested it would. their models say it would, but the impacts on our lives are much greater, more dramatic than they originally anticipated. so these affects are going to get more unprecedented. but they're certainly not something we didn't know was coming. and a we prepared for that. and for the,
12:14 am
the consequences of this unprecedented extreme, whether that is like, keep get worse and years from now. no, we're not. and we're not investing enough in 2 things. the most urgent priority is to invest in d carbonite thing our system so that we don't go on making the problem worse. but climate change is happening now. it's not something for the future. and so we also have to invest in upgrading our infrastructure everywhere. so that we can cope with the impacts we're already experiencing. and that means investing more. for instance, in managing dry lands and forest lands that have got to become more vulnerable to fires, it means investing more in the water system so that people can retain access to water both in our cities, but also in our agriculture areas. or we won't be able to grow food, so we have to do an enormous amount to increase the resilience. we have to these
12:15 am
increasingly shocking events at the same time as we have to invest in stopping burning fossil fuels. we've seen in the flood waters causing such havoc in germany and then these deadly mud slides in india. and then also we see we see droughts and wildfire playing out elsewhere in the u. s. know strayer and now in turkey, and you explain how rising temperatures feed through and to such a different conditions depending on where you are in the world, whether it be very dry conditions in one place or heavier rainfall elsewhere. i can't explain very shortly, but i can say because it's a very complex system that we're perturbing by adding greenhouse gases to the atmosphere. but what the scientist told us 30 years ago was it was like do that. if we went on doing that, we would make what areas wetter and dry areas dryer. that was the british been
12:16 am
a very brief summary of some very complicated science, but that's essentially what we're seeing as that warms up as a c warms up, we're seeing changes in the way weather is constructed. as i smell, it changes the way in which temperatures a distributed around the world. and that's what drives are whether the differences in temperature, brittany equator. the poll for instance, is a very important driver of our weather. if you change that temperature balance, you change the distribution of things like floods and droughts, fires, heat or the things we're saying right now has this result head in enough of a shift in language, maybe political culture and sort of mindset and mentality basically is there is that a widespread acceptance that these conditions have being caused,
12:17 am
or at least exacerbated by human induced climate change. yes, there is an, it's certainly true amongst populations wherever you take the world. you take an opinion poll, you find the public is alert to and aware of the problem. once something done a budget, politicians have been slower. but what we've begun to see recently is pretty well across the board. politicians are beginning to sign up to a commitment to get the world's energy system to net 0 by 2050. but signing up or making a promise is something. politicians are very good at doing, doing the things that actually make a difference that rather less good at doing. and we're not seeing the kind of action from politicians that we need to say if we're going to address these problems successfully. thank you very much. tell her we get to chat again soon. tom back. johnny is there from the 3 g. nathan use our live from
