5:02 pm
energy prices have risen to record levels, or the e. u is being particularly bronte badly here. it's been laying out a plan to protect people facing huge belts or answer do what should be done. is to thought 1st, our immediate priorities to protect europe. consumers, especially the most minor. second, we have to make a system better prepared and more resilient, so that we don't have to face a similar situation in the future. the short term member states are best placed and equipped duct. and as in going to barbara, den, protecting consumers is a longstanding u priority. so it means that our rules already allow and in fact encourage the member states take action. natasha butler has more now from brussel. your energy commissioner laying out that list of recommendations for meant the states
5:03 pm
who want to try and healed consumers from those rising cost bills will be going up . they warn, and of course we are heading into winter here in europe. so there is a lot of concern about how people are going to be able to see their homes. for example. now some of the recommendations from the commission with things like reducing tax on energy bills or helping poor households with financial aid to checks vouchers, card thing, anything that can help people, whether the storm, if you like, in some cases i said simpson, the bill should be frozen altogether for the most vulnerable people in the block. now across europe, governments have been trying to decide what to do to try and shield their own populations from the energy crisis. we've seen, for example, in countries like france and italy, they are considering these tax cuts already or the energy bills in france is already been put a cap on energy bills. but other countries are also saying that what is needed is
5:04 pm
much more of an e. u. wide response, these recommendations might not be enough. what they are pushing for a much larger responses to this course is spain. for example, i says it would be good if the you would be able to, jointly by natural gas and then distributed amongst a block or, or work on joint storage of natural gas or things which could help more vulnerable member states. i the way those issues are all going to be on the table when you lead me next week for some of the energy crisis. very much. one of the main things on the agenda early i spoke to will stephan, who is the climate change expert, the truly national university. and he, he explains why the world must move fast on renewable energy. this is a very important report. it saying that if we want to make the paras climate goals, we have to move very quickly and very decisively now toward renewable energy. or there's a lot of interest course in net 0 emissions by 2050. but i think the real focus and
5:05 pm
this report makes it clear that we have to think of the near term targets. we need to think about getting our emissions down by 2030 very rapidly and very deeply. so this is a report from the sector itself saying we've got to move fast and decisively now these pledges are need to be moved up. i mean, shortest of as a pledge for reaching net 0 before 2060, that's pretty far down the track. a lot of western countries have nets due by 2050 targets. i think we really need to focus on 2030. and i think globally, we've got to get emissions down at least by 50 percent, cut them in half in this decade. if we are to have a chance of keeping temperatures to well below 2 degrees. so i think this really is the crunch time is the i said it's can take a lot of investment. it has to happen now. we can simply talk about it or kick the can down the road. we actually have to act on it now. it's not as energy shortages that countries are grappling with as a nice from the current of our span. demik global supply chains have been disrupted
5:06 pm
. and many goods remain missing from shelves. reduce factory output across the past 18 months and shipping backlogs are being blamed. now, u. s. present, joe biden is intervening to help ease some of the pressure i white house correspondent kimberly huck it has the details. the port of california in los angeles is a really good example of where the problems lie. that is a port that accounts for in terms of unloading container ships from overseas, about 40 percent of the goods that americans buy. and right now, it is at a backlog. now adding to the problems, the fact that there are containers that need to be unloaded is there is a shortage of truck drivers to take those containers across the country to fill the stores and pack the shelves of american stores. and there's another problem too. there is a shortage of workers to unpack those container boxes and put them on the shelves.
5:07 pm
and so you see what's happening happening here. there's a bit of a ripple effect and the treasury secretary says that this is something that they believe is temporary. what has happened, what is created, this sort of backlog that has turned into a shortage of goods for consumers. is that when the economy shut down, due to the coven, 19 pandemic, people stop needing goods, or rather they needed more goods and they stop needing services. and so that's what created the shortage, that's what created the backlog. and now this is an administration working hard to turn this economy back on and get this backlog worked out. in the world news italy bonnie's calling on the international community to unblock billions in funds, which it says risk undermining, security. it's acting foreign minister is meeting us and european envoys here in ca . time says, banks need to operate freely in order for people to be paid. there is growing concern of a humanitarian crisis as of county san remains cut off from much of the world with

5:09 pm
a press conference from the spokesperson of the interior minister for the 1st time addressing the taliban and saying that they cannot be taking matters into their own has going house to house. but significantly, when it comes to security, saying if anyone is found to be part of vital to have infiltrated the taliban, that they will be held to account under a law that the whole unit that they are part of including the commander will be dissolved. this is the 1st time that they're publicly addressing, what could be an issue of infiltration. so i think security issues moving forward. and again, even the telephone hasn't been paid their salary. the people will tell you that over time, that could also be an issue when it comes to defections towards ice. okay. the united nation has recalls to senior officials working in ethiopia because of concerns about their safety. it comes after and unverified recording surfaced in which to you and workers say officials sympathize with rebels integrating the investigation into that recording comes days after easy. ok expelled. 7 un employees accusing them of meddling un secretary general is calling on

5:11 pm
that view and haven't confirmed the identity of the the people. but it has said it is following its own internal mechanism to address this issue. it's been quite a lot of attention over the last few months between the government and not just the u. n but other international leg 8 organizations who are working in ethiopia, those 7 officials that the government said it was throwing out there on tanya terry, as the secretary general did reject that explosion, that was just the most recent in a, in a number of statements from the government, when it's been very critical of various staff members of international humanitarian organization can use president who are kenyatta says he will not recognize a ruling by the international court of justice. the judgement largely favors somalia in a long running maritime border dispute as fake is control of a 100000 square kilometers section of the indian ocean is reaching oil and gas.
5:12 pm
kenya says it's maritime borders should be drawn in a straight line eastwards parallel to the line of latitude. but somalia says the borders should expand southwards, extending its land border. hulma aliya kenya, should instead see the decision of the court as an opportunity to strengthen the relationship of the 2 countries and the collaboration of their neighboring people. somalia did not choose to be a neighbor with kenyana, but it was the willing of the almighty god. so that were forced to live as peaceful neighbors. so marya was committed to that for ever, and welcomes it. now. decision is in the circumstances, a 0 sum game, which will only strain the relations between our 2 countries. it will also reverse the social, political, and economic gains and potentially aggravate the piece a security situation in the fragile horn of africa region, arduous airs. catherine saw he has worn out from nairobi. this statement by kenya's
5:13 pm
present or working at a comes as no surprise. even before the court fooling, our government officials had been seen the will not respect if somewhat anticipating the outcome of it. they say that they will defend kenya will defend its territory. that will not give up an inch of it. we've also heard from president of somalia from maggio who says that this is an opportunity for the 2 countries to seat and talk with very unclear to see with a can is willing to take that position right now because they have held a very hard line position if you remember, can you withdrew from this case back in march, and now it has said that it will not suspect the decision of the court. the court does, it does not have the decision to enforce it's ruling. so it's good to be very difficult to see what's going to happen going forward. the court's ruling, however, is final that the decision of the court is final. but then any, a group country can go a place, it's grievances to the un security council. so
5:14 pm
a lot of people are waiting to see what's going to happen going forward a, is that going to be a push for more talks between the 2 countries? is kenya going to soft and it sounds a bit. but at this moment, kenya says it will not respect the caught a court decision, and it will do anything to protect its boundaries. still ahead on al jazeera, why a group of palestinian prisoners in israel jails have gone on a mast hunger strike a show of support for, believe us government, it's under pressure about a new law. criticize as a step towards a police fate. ah hello everyone. thank you for joining in the southwest monsoon has exit it from northern parts of india,
