4:03 pm
is that going on in the un general assembly chamber, something else going on down here just through that door as we speak in the security council chamber, a high level meeting that taking place on climate and how it impacts peace and security, whether climate is causing conflict and certainly some say it is, they say that there are, will be in the future conflicts the directly caused by climate. and the un secretary general making clear that already are conflicts where climate is a part of the conflict. for example, he mentioned south su dawn, he said some of the local fighting in south sudan is the result of disputes over agricultural land in the country that has drought and then has flooding. so an important meeting, according to many bart, there are some countries, although there are here today, the irish prime minister presiding. and he would like to seek a special representative of the secretary general setup on this and the un security
4:04 pm
council resolution. there are also foreign ministers, all sorts of high level people around the table. but 2 countries not represented at a high level, and they are important countries that permanent members of the security council, china and russia, they believe yes, climate has important conflict is important, but they need to be dealt with separately and they're not an issue for the un security council addressing that view of the chinese and russians in the last few moments we've heard from the us secretary of state and the lincoln has been speaking in the security council. we have to stop debating with the climate crisis belongs in the security council. he said, and instead ask how the council can leverage its unique powers to tackle the negative impacts of climate on peace and security. it's an argument that should have been settled a long time ago. comments from the u. s. secretary state in the meeting ongoing. now, i'm following on from the strain and relations between france and the u. s. another attempt being made today to repair time. yes,
4:05 pm
you've got around the council table as we speak, the secretary state antony blinking, who's just spoken. don't even know who's the french foreign ministers also that now they've been in new york all week. they haven't really had a proper charge chance to catch up. they were a few hours ago late last night here in new york at a meeting of the 5 permanent members of the un security council. but i haven't spoken one on one. and i think for the french foreign minister, this whole rao about australia and those submarines is quite personal because he did. he was the defense minister and did the deal in the 1st place. also remember that the french very much like having antony blinking is secretary of state. he's a fluent french speaker. he was educated, somebody's education was in france. so i think it was taken as a particular slide from this man who is seen as a francophile. but we are hearing from the state department alerts not formally on sexual state schedule, that they are going to find some time to talk. now that that to lead us of talked
4:06 pm
on the fun. funny thanks for that. james bay's the 1st live, the un another busy day for him. millions of people across the u. s. will soon receive the fed dose pfizer cove at 19 vaccine. us regulators approve booster shots the high risk groups on wednesday. americans who are 65 and older and high risk individuals will be eligible for a job. it is a scaled down version of the board and administration plan to give out those doses to nearly all adults. the booster can be administered 6 months after the initial 2 dose. course effects nation has been completed. that's going to give me hope in his life for us in washington, d. c. kimberly so fuzzy took her through the time line for these booster shots. hello for those that are hopeful to get one, they could be waiting days, not weeks. so that is certainly welcome news for certain individuals in the united
4:07 pm
states will qualify. as you pointed out, there is already one stage in this 2 step process that this booster shot has crossed in terms of the hurdle for getting this into the arms of the public. the food and drug administration has signed off on this, but the still needs the signing off of the centers for disease control because this is the body that will decide how this is implemented, how this is distributed throughout the united states. now we know that this has been something the c d c has been awaiting, so those plans are pretty much in place. but again, there is that formal signing off that needs to take place. we expect it will happen quickly. and as you point out those vulnerable groups, those who are 65 and older or 18 above, but perhaps working in a high risk occupation such as police stations, grocery stores, even teachers, hospital workers, all of those people that feel that they would need one would be eligible to receive
4:08 pm
this booster jab. kimberly, what does this plan say about the concern over the spread of the virus right now in the united states? well, it says that what these regulators believe is that this is still a pandemic of the on vaccinated. and that where we see the surgeons in the united states and states like montana, alaska, kentucky, wisconsin. we're also seeing high levels of vaccine hesitancy. and so this has been a source of frustration for not only public health workers, but also for those that actually work in the hospitals. and this is led to another crisis of source. because while we feed a search of cases in some of those states where vaccinations are low, what we've also seen is a high number of exhaustion among those that work in hospitals and have been dealing with this now for more than a year and a half. so as a result,
4:09 pm
a lot of hospitals are not only seeing a search and care, but simultaneously they're seeing staff shortages. so what's the result of this rushing of care and that is a high concern. so the regulators are once again pushing the message that you need to be vaccinated. and now if you're one of those vulnerable groups you may need and will now qualify for a booster shot. kimberly, how does b u. s. administration balance these booster plans with the needs, the inequality needs for vaccines around the world. well, already the united states has made a major announcement about 24 hours ago of the fact that it will now be distributed throughout the world. the more shots that it's actually giving in the united states, because what the united states has experience for some time now is that there is more supply, then there is demand. and so as a result,
4:10 pm
the by the administration continues to make announcements where it is when we should point out that this is coming with no strings attached, the united states says, and this will be free of charge. so the united states and specifically the bi administration, believes that it is also delivering on this sort of fill of proper aspect of the vaccine sort of inequality that exists around the united states in the world rather. but at the same time, certainly there is no obligation, but also people are around the world are looking at the united states saying it's a wealthy country. and it's certainly could step up into even more money. things that can the hong kong 1st live in washington dc. spain's tourism minister has been criticized, suggesting that a volcanic eruption on one of the canary islands could be a draw for tourists. a wall as lava up to 12 meters high is slowly moving across la
