9:33 pm
real bad. he's woken up in an ambulance more than once. he's joined a rehabilitation program, but he can't help coming back for more more rows real bad. real bad. so i leave you to leave your j. c without you again. he'd like to kick the habit with the draw of opioids is too strong. this block on chicago's west side is a fentanyl epicenter. last year, deaths by opioids went up 30 present in illinois and 83 percent of those were due to fentanyl. located mar, nell brown says the fault lies with drug makers who dramatically underplayed the powerful lou revoke oil. is supposed to be a controlled substance. does, would occur, does what it unfolded as a control. so the not there is auto control many start with legally bought,
9:34 pm
but highly addictive prescription painkillers like oxy code on and moved to st corner drugs when their prescriptions run out. the street corner pills they by are often laced with fentanyl, an opioid 50 to a 100 times more powerful than heroin. they don't know what they're getting before they would just get oxy code on. and now the oxy code on is compress is, is, is there crushing up of fitness and compressed in the on to the peels, all the different peel. so now the st dealers are our path and on these jokes to any and everybody, every day on chicago's west side, john write more, nell brown, and his brother, kevin brown patrol for addicts and often find someone overdosing when they do they administer. nor can kevin has done it so many times, the addicts have a name for him. look up and this guy, it's a bird supply. no, it just me. no,
9:35 pm
okay. and on this order, man, a, this was a brief. it was then from ornell brown, a recovered heroin addict, the culpability of opioid manufacturers is personal. he says he can't escape his own responsibility for past drug use. with that for many addiction is aided and abetted by the industry. i take this very personal, very person, because almost 7 prisoner of that war. i'm a cavity from that war. a war against addiction that plays out in this streets of every american city in cities around the globe. john henderson, l g 0, chicago. unless speak to dr. edwin chapman about this, he's a board certified addiction specialist and he's joining us live from zoom from washington dc. thank you very much for being with us dr. chapman. the appealing crisis has affected the us as a whole, of course, but i wanted to know what cities and communities have been particularly hard hit.
9:36 pm
and what's been the impact on trees in the us are being impacted as well of rule one, suburban areas. this problem existed in most urban areas of 506070 years ago, but it was not discussed over the past 20 years with the influx prescription medications and to the suburbs in rural areas. there's been an uptick there and, and that has brought on a more attention to the problem. so in the urban areas, it was predominantly treated as a criminal justice system problem. now it's being treated as a medical problem because it's now in your rules burger larry. and i understand the african american community in particular has been affected. is this the case
9:37 pm
rest? that's true. so with the african american population, it was always treated as a, a criminal justice or moral failing. now that it's reached a so called suburban rule areas. and affecting more caucasians is now being treated as medical from right now to counties in the state of ohio. and going to be arguing in court that 4 major pharmacy chains are responsible for the wider opiate crisis. our previous cases have targeted drug distributors and manufacturer, manufacturer as a tried in cleveland is a 1st to specifically target pharmacies. are the pharmacies, as you know, say, federal regulators are to blame. what is your view of this? i mean, who do you think carries the most responsibility? and do you see the style changing anything? well, carry responsibility, the distributors, other pharmacies. these are controlled so called controlled substances. and there
9:38 pm
are a designated reports that are supposed to have been made up to the da and regards to ah, how these medications were being distributed and flooding certain markets. so the information has been there, it just was not reported by even the pharmacies or the distributor dotted japanese, talked about how this is we in the us, what was treated as a criminal offense. what do you think the response to the crisis should be? how do you combat? i did this epidemic in europe, for example, they tend to have the medication approach. do you think that would work in the u. s . and yes, and that's where the problem is. so 20 years ago, branch of portugal, for example, i had a very similar problems to the us and they immediately started using medication the system treatment at that time. method on, ah,
9:39 pm
and or you can orphan which are both old and one is an agnes. the other, the partial agonist that attaches to the so called new receptors are the recept, your sites in the no central nervous system and the gastrointestinal tract. so they use this medication approach to curve of the withdrawal symptoms. and it were, they had a dramatic decrease. and overdose, as they had a romantic decrease in infectious diseases of both jaded with drug use like aids and hepatitis c. and they also had a dramatic decrease. in fact, in the us we did just the office. thank you so much dr. chapman for talking to us about best edward chapman joining a fair from washington dc. edwin chapman. thank you. bye. globally,
9:40 pm
the action needed is a gathering for their for us in 1st meeting since the side of the corona virus pandemic, international air transport association gathering, had been suspended due to coffee restrictions. delegates are expected to focus on how to make up for the economic losses. the industry suffered during the pandemic. let's bring in gabriel. is on doe, who is live from boston where that meeting is being housed? so how's the industry feeling about recovery prospect skate? well, they're feeling that things are getting better, but it's slow. i mean, just to give you an idea about to how much the industry has lost, i ada announced new numbers this morning here in boston, saying that in 2021 this year, the global aviation industry is expected to lose about $51000000000.00 that is a lot of money, but it's better than last year, which was the worst year on record where they lost a $137000000000.00. so things are getting better slowly, but the losses continue to mount up. they forecast ahead to next year 2022. they
9:41 pm
still expect to forecasting out that there could be as much as $11000000000.00 in losses in the air transport industry as well. so listen, the domestic air travel is picked up in north america and in parts of europe. but there is still much of the world that they are concerned about that the just the, the amount of travel has not picked up enough to bolster the industry to stem these losses. it's still, they say, going to be several years really until they're able to reverse these multi $1000000000.00 losses. but overall, many of the people here, the c, e o, 's and other officials from the various airlines throughout the world that are here . say that things they do sort of see a light at the end of the tunnel after what has been a very hard to years. but there's also the show of emissions. gay b industry is of course, one of the biggest contributors to emissions. what are they going to do about
9:42 pm
here they've announced that they heard that the airline industry hopes to get a carbon neutral by 2050. and that's the aspirational goal, if you will. but it's going to be hard and we saw how it is gonna be hard because already chinese carriers are saying they don't necessarily want to abide by that. and so many analysts i spoke to say that unless there's any sort of enforcement by individual governments where the airlines are based out of it's gonna be hard to reach that goal nevertheless. so the airlines do now see this very much as a crisis. one that they're contributing to because of the emissions that lead to climate change. if the airline industry, the global airline industry was a country, it would be the world's 6th largest emitter of a greenhouse gas,
9:43 pm
is essentially of carbons. and so that's why the industry really feels like now they have to take some experimental steps to try to bring that down. they're talking about biofuels, but that's still several years out before they can really start rolling that out. major us carrier united airlines announced a purchase of $100.00 electronic planes, electric plains that don't run on airline fuel aviation fuel at all. the problem with that is these planes only hold about 9000 people. they only have a range about 400 kilometers. and they won't even be rolled out until 2026. so there's a lot of different ideas out there. but until the industry as a whole, can get moving in one direction. and there's some sort of accountability, it's going to be a long road to bring down those emissions kimberly's until in boston. thank you. investigate is in the u. s. set of california trying to find out why 126000 gallons of oil leaks from a rake for kilometers from shore. sh. who is working around the count to contain
9:44 pm
the slacken at pacific? an keen up vault of tar on the coast. the mare of one coastal community has called it an environmental catastrophe. that spring in rob rentals who joins us now live from huntington beach affected by this oil spell. tell us about the situation where you are rob, what's been named back to this point. will indeed fully it does appear that there is an environmental catastrophe unfolding where i'm standing and 4 kilometers all along the coast of southern california. the oil spill is, as you mentioned, a 130000 gallons of fruit. that's nearly half a 1000000 leaders. if you convert it and the pipeline itself has been shut down now, but the damage has been done. we're standing at the edge of a law, went land environment. you could probably see behind me the yellow plastic louise
9:45 pm
or our booms that have been set up. they're trying to keep the oil from further damaging this wet land from killing a birds and other marine, a wild life that rely on this wet land for breeding and death, and the, and feeding at the all local agencies as well as the coast guard and other federal agencies are working, as you said, around the clock. we can see some of them are wearing their hazmat uniforms and outfits around here and, and doing what they can also on the beach itself. there are, you know, clots of gooey oil and tar, which will have to be cleaned up. now, the timeline of all this fully is very interesting because residents began hoarding the strong smell of oil. a kind of decently types of smells on friday, but on it wasn't until saturday that the coast guard deployed its resources and
9:46 pm
vessels had discovered the source of the league, the extent of the damage and began its operations. and the company that re the operates and owns the pipeline of the, which is called an allied a, excuse me. it's called the amplify energy, a texas based company that a company only admitted that it was it's pipeline on saturday night. no, cause for the exact or oh the exactly what happened a has been right identified, but you know, all of this infrastructure dates back at least to the 1980s. right. and so this is not new and environmental 7 warning for years now of the potential that, that this age inc. pipelines and other facilities and infrastructure, lack of maintenance. this could all cause what we're seeing here today. so the impact rob on wind bash. well
9:47 pm
the while life rescue organizations say they've, they've the they've taken in a handful of birds that were covered with oil. one of those a pelican had to be actually had to be euthanized because he was in such bad shape . they do not know at this point how many birds might be dead as a result of being covered and oil. when oil hits birds covers birds, they essentially sort of suffocate. and if their feathers are made useless for the purpose of being a buoyant or, or, or warming, the these creatures residents have also reported dead fish washing up and dolphins acting in a parent distress. and then there's, of course, the micro organisms that are the, the foundation of all that while life in a marsh like this, that those tiny creatures are very susceptible to the poisonous effects of
9:48 pm
hydrocarbons. i mentioned in the a beaches they're so popular with surfers here that this is been known as surf city usa for decades now. and there are clots of tar on the beaches. it was probably going to take months at least, perhaps many months, for the beaches to be cleaned and reopened for the use of the public. bob, thank you very much for that. rob bounce reporting there from huntington beach in california. the vatican has hosted an event to call for more action from world leaders, the head of a major climate conference. both frances and dozens of religious leaders made a joint appeal to government to commit to ambitious targets at next month's un climate summits. and a group of greenpeace activists have blocked the entrance to showers refinery at rotterdam port. the demonstration is part of a wider initiative by climate groups to put pressure on the
