2:34 pm
from illegal loggers, and saving the sturgeon how in ancient fashion, struggling to survive alongside george's ambitious hydroelectricity projects, the young polish activists hoping to protect the future. he doesn't feel this, the sense of the world just being destroyed that i see every day when i wake up and testing the i fly high on the crack off in poland in one of the most polluted regions of you. ah, the 1st typically you in climate summers do not attract the attention of the world at large. but this one has and primarily it's because of the extreme weather events we've been seeing this year. let's take a look this summer alone in the u. s. death valley, so the highest temperature ever recorded on us flooding in germany and belgium killed more than 200 people. more flooding in china with passengers trapped on subway trains. and wild fans raged in the us, canada and siberia. in europe,
2:35 pm
record heat waves calls widespread fires across turkey and greece. and here in area, the still picking up the pieces in early august with temperatures at, i'm seen, eyes, wildfire ripped across southern europe. the land was parched and the fires quickly spread, nor the levia in greece was a hottest hit inferno lawsuit for 2 weeks. thousands were evacuated. today you can see what's left in the devastation in this area was total. people are well used to annual wildfires here, but not on this scale. not with this much last thousands of hector's of forest and livelihoods just incinerated. and because of the fires a new threat as the rain comes so do floods and mudslides defies him, destroy the land, natural ability to withhold water, to act as
2:36 pm
a flood defense system. now in periods of intense rain, the water just cascades offerings, hillsides so that using the dead trees, the shore of the soil and the land in these hard exhausting work, but vital to preserve what's left and encourage regeneration of the forest. innate, that the devil to the guy again about a there you were trying to keep the soil in place as we don't want it to be carried away by heavy rainfall because their natural regeneration cannot take place. they slowly be carried into the creeks and that will create a huge problem causing flooding them. nearby community is a big part of ebay. as far as the economy has been obliterated. cost as i own use, livelihood comes from his bees, who make honey from the resin of pine trees, or used to cost to shoot me. what's left of the dozens of hives he lost to the
2:37 pm
fires against the mirror. i'm in the stable asheel sound that this once green forest has been burnt, and i find it difficult to figure out what we'll do and how be keeping can continue to exist on ebay. we will not be around when this forest is once again able to give us honey. so for us, our area has died. collecting pine reson was an important money and as far as like george yos agnostic, but not in the mall, he also lost a fit of his goat, her to the fires. across the island, more animals died than survived. either political us of us, another good i such havoc on the destruction was grateful. fontose, buildings were burnt, animals were lost, and grazing. land has disappeared. in other words, what we had here was last many is need to go buy so that things can return to how they were from last livelihoods to ruined homes. all this is the reality of a warming world. natural weather events made worse by climate change. city when you
2:38 pm
come inside that you get a sense realization of just how fast it must have been it living normally one band and the very next is all this torch than collapse around you. everywhere you look as evidence of a life once lived to folk. oh to night, hannah ornaments that presume we just sat on shells, an old book contest. ah, this has been a seismic event that has changed lives perhaps for a generation. but the forest will come back because nature always does. if humanity allows it to say, helping people adapt to and mitigate against extreme weather events that cause damage like this is a big part of the you and climate summit and glasgow next week. so what does
2:39 pm
success call? 26 looked like. well remember, the science says we need to prevent temperatures from rising beyond ideally one and a half degrees celsius. but the 2021 production got report out last week shows current government plans will produce more than double the amounts of fossil fuels required to make that happen. so in class, we need a strong declaration that commit to net 0 emissions by 2050, as well as big reductions by 2030 developing nations. we want a considerable financial package to help them adapt. and that needs to be ambitious commitment to phasing out coal. and protecting forests editing sholtes and coke. 26 will be deemed a failure. and then who knows what lies in store? ah,
2:40 pm
so the major focus $26.00 will be an attempt to set goals to end deforestation. first, of course are crucial for the health of the planet. and we've come here to the co pay the mountains in romania, which is hurting to $1.00 of the largest remnants of virgin forest in europe, which is also under devastation, is sold from illegal logging. autumn carpets the hillsides, the multi hued canopy mocking the seasonal change and millennia ancient original forest. sweeping across the copay, the mountains in eastern europe. it's been here since the ice age, the mosaic of habitat rich and life and sheer natural running. if the amazon rain forest is the lungs of the world, from the forest of the co pay, the mountains of a lungs of europe, they shocked the c o. 2 out of the atmosphere and put auction back into it. they
2:41 pm
regulate the water system. there's a vast vosta ray of life here. in fact, the forests of the world are the most by adverse ecosystems on the planet right in these ones, pristine environment. life is these squeezed out, are the so called can be mafia. ah, trees are being extracted illegally on an unprecedented scale by criminal gangs, and the locals who fight against it, paid to price meetings or frequent the people. the murder to 6 forest rangers had been killed in the last few years, leading to recent purchase in the capital to crist. oh, 1st and hurry, a pet truce mimics to cooler red stag going apart. he tells me they used to be 50 or 60 in this area alone. so, but now it seems, there are none me. and this is why this area was legally logged 10 years
2:42 pm
ago, and it ripped apart to a system where trees one stood for thousands of years. and there are abundant bio diversity as a don't. it's all but a lifeless patchwork. but you can see this kind of station from the on the fact that there is a maps, you can see everything. it's impossible to believe that they didn't know they know . and they encourage and they took a lot of money. says it's clear who's to blame. the politicians ending good forrester and a professional that does studies and grew up into the forest and know what forestry means, can blame only the politicians. we spoke to the government and they told us combating a legal logging is one of the priorities of romania. it's a continuous action and we've already seen results. a working group has been set up which aims to increase the efficiency of solving criminal cases involving forestry
2:43 pm
crimes. as well as the specialization of environmental prosecutors. we drove on through the forest, along tracks and roads used in plain sight by the illegal loggers. ah, the people who live in the mountains is terrible. farmer and forest only conclusion says the whole community is affected by today for the important the interesting i thought the event we thought for hundreds of years we have manage the forest in a sustainable way. we take a small amount of wood for building and fire. you know, it's very annoying that strangers come here from other countries and take away our way of life. i'm frightened of the people who steal to what i feel. my family is in danger because this is a mob like organization. the scale of loss is staggering. romania loses up to 9 heck, tis a forest per hour to illegal logging. that contributes to the huge amount of forest loss globally, in fact, between 1990 in 2016,
2:44 pm
the world lost 1300000 square kilometers a forest, an area larger than south africa. and in 2020 tropical forest loss around the world equal the size of the netherlands. since humans started cutting down forests, 46 percent of trees have been found. mm. around the world 2020 was meant to be a landmark year in the fight against deforestation. a year by which many countries had pledged to have or completely stop forest loss. but in fact, the plundering has increased. here in romania. it's not too late yet. if not now, when we've come to southern poland to the heart of the countries mining industry, the rich coal seems of felicia have long powered the country economic engine today providing up to 50000 jobs. coal accounts for more than 2 thirds of the country's
2:45 pm
energy supply. the trouble is by 2049, coal is due to be phased out. and that presents a very real problem for the region and for the country as a whole. across poland, coal heartlands, this is a familiar site every day of the year and has been for decades, palace stations working non stop to keep the country running. this is the biggest and most common polluting power plant to the whole of europe. it is a balance of power station and it accounts around a 5th, about 20 percent opponents total energy requirement and is fueled by this colossal pit my. we can see in front of his head and employs nearly 10000 people. ah. but every one across the industry is deeply worried about the future as the transition to renewables means coal should be phased out entirely by 2049 at the latest. so the question is,
2:46 pm
what happens to the minus i met with mine and trade union offices. georgie america, who worked in the pits for 43 is, he took me deep down, a decommissioned mine, which is more than 40 kilometers of underground tunnels and told me minus of were the coal faces here? sincerely 18 hundreds. now as the industry winds down 21st century minus, feel let down by the government ashes a sum of i am feeling for which i am. but if a prostate than i understand change is taking place in the money industry on necessary. but those changes have to put people 1st. it must be a just unfair transition, securing their existence. the money industry has long set the lift to our economy. and today money is being considered as something bad and problematic for the government. the green transition is a huge challenge. it admitted to al jazeera, it's unlikely to hit the 25th. the cob unusual target, agreed by the e. u. i think for, for us it's a need will be,
2:47 pm
it will be more difficult and than for orders. and it will certainly take us longer. it might be a few years beyond we haven't said that goal specifically in our, in our legislation today, we are currently working on, on a strategic until 2050, but that hasn't been finalized. i don't that stone certainly does not make the forthcoming you in climate negotiations in glasgow any easier with their focus on the phasing out of co. a bad news too. because from a health perspective, the green transition cannot come soon enough. across poland, toxic colson, willows from millions of chimney tops amiss at a time when the world health organization says it, air pollution is more dangerous than previously thought. killing an estimated $7000000.00 people a year in poland itself. air pollution causes $45000.00 premature deaths each year,
2:48 pm
while the country has some of the most polluted air in europe. and 36 of europe's 50 most polluted cities are in the country. but in the ones badly polluted city of crack of science is hitching a ride into the evening sky. every time this sight, seeing balloon goes up on both senses. st. apaloosa measurements down in 2019 city authorities been the burning of fossil fuels within city limits. and the effects have been immediate. we see yeah, great, changing the city, the quality of the air is say, improving cra, city out, or if the city is pushing to hurry, much pressure to it would use the amy since the crack of these mirrors demonstrates the possibilities ahead for po, phase out, cold you slash emissions clean out the air at the same time, the getting there is
2:49 pm
a challenge. salisia the regional, the re front light of that green energy transition. and as that transition gathers pace, of course, all forms of renewable energy needs to be ramped up from solar to winds, even the whole debate of a nuclear power. and we're going to focus now on hydro power. and the problem with that is that as we build more dams, it takes its toll on the natural world. robin for our share. walker reports now from georgia. if you could travel through the mists of time, say around 200000000 years, you would find fish. remarkably like ones swimming the present day waters of the reality river here. those special species fun, endo, a warrant of we're in dinosaurs. this touches we're also living here. so this is my little responsibility for this living linked to pre history
2:50 pm
rests on to moon as young shoulders a ph. d student and conservation officer with foreigner and flora international. 5 critically endangered species of sturgeon still spawn in the rony. that is the travel ups tree you from the black sea to lay their racks. but upstream numerous times have contributed to that trusty decline. this one is developed seeking hydropower cascade completed in 1087. it stopped fish from reaching spawning grounds that had existed for millennia hydropower. so very me probably for sure this pardon spawning grounds. are the chris that oh and now it's only 9 kilometer in the past. it was more of a 50 measure, temporary child. the with her to understand is the threat needs more data, said. ringback again,
2:51 pm
he is going to help. he remembers the days when the sturgeon would lodge and plentiful, catching them now is illegal. but if method locals know who to call our law, your mom is not from another. we keep is alive, put it to the basket, and white the to moon, all the others that they'll come and take a sample and let them go. said you fish, rubies, back into the river. that's delivering results. one species is thought to be extinct has been we discovered the so called the ship sturgeon. but the an analysis also has revealed a worrying trend hybrid individuals which can no longer produce a listless dishes which interbred. they don't have enough spawning grounds. also they are not the lucky individual since they cannot find
2:52 pm
the same species. ringback ringback man's intervention is everywhere. here the river has been diverted to reduce season who flooding this loose gates used to be used for quite a different purpose. if closed you could trap migrating sturgeon and they could be caught far more easily. well, thanks to observe is on the ground. those kinds of big fishing events are far less common. 12 monitors now patrol a 92 kilometer stretch of the rony. last year can add his team, undercover to $22.00. incidence of poaching, including this brig of hooks designed to snag sturgeon on the river bed. the cisco that's in my work on it on gosh, we live at the live without credit or we are in contact with each other over the phone. we pass on information. what is happening in our area, or if a boat goes by, i will tell the others where it went in which direction, and we will react so that if something illegal is happening,
2:53 pm
we can stop it. the sturgeon ah, now better protected and better understood. but george's government once more, hydro power on this river, not less, their survival still hangs in the balance. the battle to change the way we power the world. mobilized as mass climate youth movement, his actions resonates around the world. we throw it 3 of ponies. you got to this and show them some video clips of some key players in the climate conversation. my name is them ye, can i 19 years old and i got into climate activism at the beginning of the pandemic because i always just wanted speed assertion to all the graces that were facing. hi, my name is latoya and 16, and i joined to claim it was rand. 2 years ago i michel, i am an 1000 years old and i knew came when i came in and lived in for about 3
2:54 pm
years. there are further rises in temperatures that are already baked in, but my friends baked his word if we keep on the current track, then the temperatures will go up by 2.7 degrees or more by the end of the century, never mind will. that will do add to the ice flows, dissolving like ice in your martini here in a new york. when i hear this, i feel no hope to neighbors. johnson, just as his fellow prime ministers, presidents across the world, they are and detached from the reality and do not treat the crisis that we are facing seriously. he meets with so many people and, and that he makes jokes about how the glaciers are will melt like, like ice in martini. i mean that's that just said nazi build a good you all commitment to fighting fires and deforestation is strong. we recently recorded a 28 percent decrease in deforestation and burning in the region,
2:55 pm
but even then we criticized. we're both an arrow as a climate denial and or what he does is he commits eco site and he, he lies straight into our faces. and he, he doesn't care about indigenous people off, i'm as own an unprecedented flashlights in new york and new jersey is yet another more reminder, it is, extreme storm in the crime, a crisis crisis or here he is a man of a seventy's. anyone who knows how long will he be able to, to live on this planet? i won't be living here for decades, but he is the one empower and he doesn't feel the fear that i feel he doesn't feel this, this sense of, you know, the world just just being destroyed that i see every day when i wake up. when
2:56 pm
climate crisis came to them, when the climate crisis started to threaten their homes like their country, now they're starting to treat. it's a seriously win for a lot of years. climate crisis was a relative for millions of people in the global. so there is no planet b, there is no plan and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, i think the blah, blah, blah, sums up a lot. i think it is a 100 percent representation of what the politicians across our country. but across the world are giving us at the moment is just blah blah blades emptiness. it's nothing. see was just so sarcastic at the beginning and i quite like that because and she played the same game asa, our politicians do. and when she said, blah, blah, blah, ah, that was what i hear when pull it is and say something about climate blue
2:57 pm
. chemical 26 is very important because ah, we don't have any more time for either and 25 cops like this. is there any hope for cup? i think yes, because there will be a lot of people from our climate move went. and i'm i'm, i just can't wait to. i feel the power of the people as long as they will be sticking to those fairy tales. and we will not see crime and action that we have the right to see and that we demand from the world leaders will not see just as being implemented will not see climate been treated seriously. the only hope i see is in the movement and the people that treat this whole situation with the severity that it deserves the youth, we would very much driving the impetus for global change. well that's it for this episode of plan of us o. s. next, stop by crucial climate summit in glasgow with you see is
2:58 pm
a great deal at state street, whether to water shortages to destruction of the environment through air pollution . the science tells us this is a fundamental moment relation to the world. a last chance perhaps, to pull out of his headlong dive into the climate crisis, was altering the very nature of the world with, ah mm hm. and the latest news, as it breaks the president is allowed to impose a state of emergency for 15 days,
2:59 pm
with the option of extending it for another 15 days without congress's approval. we detailed coverage with his rights group in southeast asia, say bacon phoned about the rise in reported cases of po, working conditions from around the world, government, unsecured agencies i've described, arisen, answered on as planned with the aim of this table. i think the country one day i might be covering politics, major amex, i might be a rabbi, procrastinate from serbia. the hungry to what's most important to me is talking to people, understanding what they're going through so that i can convey the headlines in the most human way possible. here douglas 0. we believe everyone has a story worth hearing. too many have been forced to flee their homes, escaping violence, conflict and poverty. but in the last decade, weather related crises have become a primary trigger for the displacement of people as droughts, hurricanes and floods besieged communities. short lines travels to the front lines
