chuck, they absorb carbon dioxide and turn it into wood bark as the trees grow through the process of photosynthesis, whilst releasing oxygen into the atmosphere in all trees suck up about one 3rd of the world, c o. 2, each year that comes from burning fossil fuels cole and the like about $2600000000.00 tons, $27.00 football fields worth of forests are cut down or burned every minute. activities that are monitored by satellite. now these pictures come to us from the amazon rain forest and brazil, one of the countries this place to en deforestation by 2030. most of this activity is driven by the production of palm oil beef sawyer, timber and paper products to. well, one of the tell tale signs of deforestation and the amazon is the so called fish boon. that's a pattern that emerges along roads as loggers ranchers and other settlers pushed deeper into the forest areas. this satellite imagery is from the northern prostate in brazil, taken over a period of 20 years that fish bone pattern you can see there has emerged from the
1:31 pm
towns along the trans amazonian highway. let's bring in daniel van orlean. she is a campaigner for international forests at friends of the earth in the netherlands. she joins us from amsterdam, amsterdam, daniel van, urgent, welcome to the news hour. we've had 25 conferences. seeing something similar about deforestation. i think it was margaret thatcher back in the 99 team that started banging this particular drum. are we now about to see real change? to ask you friends of these pledges are really just like stories from a fairy tale forest. just to get the numbers since the last pledges were made in 2014, and these are pledges from the same governments from the private sector. they said they would hold before station in 2020. the private sector would hold all deforestation and remove it from their supply chains and nothing of that happened.
1:32 pm
so the deforestation has been on the ride ever since. only last year, over 4000000 pictures of tropical you much florence was lost at the side of my country, the netherlands. so this has to stop. it has to stop now. i mean, it's a 1000000 species, but extinction. it does use people's rights are violated. and of course this contributes to dangerous climate change as you've just explained. so no, it's definitely not enough. but when you listen to the us president joe biden, going through his checklist of what we're going to do, we will work with local civil society. we will work with the indigenous peoples. he didn't actually mention about the fight that i assume is still to come when they say to when people like him or, and tony go terror. say the un secretary general have to have a conversation with big business. they have to talk to the palm, oil farmers,
1:33 pm
the sawyer producers. they have to say to them, actually, your business has got to reinvent itself. you've got to do the right thing, not by your shareholders, but by the rest of us and by the generation still to come. definitely. and if you look at the governments that have been signing onto these pledges, i mean a lot of them continue to trash their forests while it's their responsibility to regulate businesses. look at brazil's in signing on this pledge. deforestation is on the ride ever since both narrow came to pyre, power and in siberia and forest. these are burning out to the ground in the congo in the democratic republic of congo. also a signatory to this pledge. and they are going to lift a moratorium on industrial logging, which really puts a lot to forest at risk. and the u. n. is continuing to import ab products like poll mile, like saw a cow rather debt drive deforestation. and they do not regulate these markets. and
1:34 pm
they do not regulate the financial sector, which is financing all those corporations that engage in deforestation. so it's really not only about talking to the private sector, it's about regulating them and, and making sure that these are corporations are sanctioned when they engage in deforestation. a coffee pledges for the past decades they were made and they have not resulted in halting the 1st ation. so the time is really now produced else regulations and whole as companies to do we need you're talking about regulation. nathaniel, do we need some sort of global, overarching umbrella organization so that when, for example, a login company wants to go in and make money out of the amazonian rain forests, it could or should perhaps be allowed to do that because that means job creation bought for every tree you chopped down, you got to plant another one and also on top of that,
1:35 pm
how expensive can it be to plant one tree that will grow quickly over generation. say to replace that other tree that some company chopped on at that point 25 years ago. what types of regulations might be needed is for example, that governments for its countries, if the, all right to conditions, peoples and local communities to manage and protect the forest, they don't for generations. and so that corporations cannot access these forests and log them out or turn them into plantations. so these like need to be strengthened. that's the 1st step. and then governments or institutions like the european commission, should make sure to hold the nation of goods of commodities that are related to deforestation. that's the type of regulation that is needed. and on top of that,
1:36 pm
we need the financial sector to finance a transition to sustainable agriculture, to community based far as management, and to stop financing, all those corporations that invest in palm oil, oil, industrial scales, because then we will continue to see deforestation. so that the regulations that are needed and some of them are in the process of being developed. but we see all those powers, all those corporate power coming in and trying to delete those, those legislative processes. so governments need to stand strong and they have the power to regulate these corporations and they should do it now. ok, we'll leave it there for the moment. danielle, thank you so much. danielle than organ. talking to us from amsterdam. the purchase prime minister as johnson has promised a green industrial revolution to achieve his country's emissions targets right now about 200000 people across the u. k. are employed in so called green jobs,
1:37 pm
but millions more will be required by that date of 2030. i'll just need barker reports now from the humble estuary on the northeast coast of england home to europe's biggest, offshore wind farms rising out of the north sea. a mighty feet of engineering. try to know offshore wind from taking shape. work of an army of newly trained apprentices. this is my going to be my 1st time apprentice. when farms been erected outside in the home by no faith. this ideal location for me to kind of get started and nearby whole. this is one of the largest manufacturers of turbine blades in the world. each hand crafted by workers, many of whom have retrained to join the sustainable energy sector. the region, once the major coal exporter has come full circle, embracing renewable energy, employ a 1000 people on this, this location. in direct roles,
1:38 pm
we have more than 20000 people apply for those roles at the time. it just shows how it captures people imagination not about working in believe, manufacture, but they hold renewables as a whole. we see potential growth as we grow and the blade size grows as well. they'll be further jobs created, not just direct job, but also in direct jobs to support this industry. this is engineering on a gargantuan scale. since the factory opened only a few years ago, it's produced more than 1500 of these 80 meter long blades and very soon the point will be making even longer ones. meaning the frank for you will have to double in size. a single turn of one of these turbines can power house for 24 hours. when i was a lot of these come down when we done all the way down, the north wall will probably be a 100 ill salas. big ships. but in the rush to d, carbonized, the economy, some local industries feel sidelined down canyon runs. the last fishing firm in
1:39 pm
grimsby. and what was the biggest fishing port in the world? it's changed drastically. i can't believe in the last 10 years how it's changed now . how the managed to get rid of everybody and you know, just leave it for the wind farms. anything the wind farms one they get, and even we need, we don't get it. which is common in, in just doing what the right. and there's obviously people, platinum do like me because there's a lot of money involved in it. the transition to green of economy isn't just about providing more jobs. it's about making sure nobody's left behind. if we chief net 0, but we end up with a less equal society than we've still failed because that will not be sustainable and it will not address the climate challenge. i'm in the long term. so he does really need to engage with the communities who are affected and get there by in so they can actually lead the action rather than being. ready kind of sideline by eventually the oil refinery that sits at the mouth of the home. the river will have
1:40 pm
to close its workers, find new jobs. these are climate scientists hope the last days of fossil fuels. but the climate challenge isn't just about cutting carbon emissions. it's about securing people's futures, nave. barker, al jazeera, on the humber estuary ok. let's go back to afghanistan because aid agencies, there are warning that displaced afghans are unprepared for the winter. was just around the corner. many others who do have homes can't afford to heat them. charlotte bellis spoke to people in cobble who are taking their chances. sheltering in the capitol strapped above is everything they need inside. every one they love. winter is coming in for 1000 people on the outskirts of cobble . it's time to go home. in bergen coma controller most moved here 3 months ago to avoid fighting as to taliban took control. i ref martine and his family came from the same to province of di condie. but the found they can't

1:42 pm
but they don't want to go home. they're scared of what no returned to and believe they have a better chance of surviving the winter hearing. cobble. oh, think a lot more displacement is a priority for you win, but its resources are stretched every day. it's running 8 handouts like this across afghanistan, responding to record levels of hunger, a severe drought, and a stalling economy. that's why a bill to the international community. the appeal to the award is understand. a bit of on his thumb is inching towards a total breakdown of of, of, of sarwich says this is a count down to catastrophe ramsey. it feels the crisis acutely. she is disabled, unable to stand after a reaction to vaccine. as a baby, she fled here from condos in august with his stepson ahmed wally. she was 8 months

pregnant soon there were 3 rather than i thought that i don't have the courage to be any more pain. i am only 26 years old, and i've seen a lot. i've seen so much, and yet i don't even have 6 good memories of my life. 11 year old ahmed wiley has stopped his education to sell rubbish bags, earning $1.00 a day to help feed ramsey and the baby. i had a whole service, he tells us, i love her a lot. i love her so much. he adds, he is thankful to the people who brought the 8 like many here. he doesn't follow you in warnings of humanitarian crisis and reports of food insecurity. but he knows life is harder than it's ever been. and without this kind of help, he and millions of others will not survive the winter. charlotte bellis? ouch. is era cobble? the white house has welcomed a private mission to me and mar by a former us ambassador to the united nations. washington is not sponsoring bill
1:44 pm
richardson's trip, but says it hopes his efforts will help get aid supplies into me and more. the un says the need for aid has increased dramatically due to the corona virus pandemic, and february's military coup. rural communities in nepal are struggling after a series of major floods left with nothing. after the water and mud receded, the government's disaster management team says these kinds of natural disasters may get even worse in the future. same bas robbie reports now from one flood ravaged district. it may have been a hole where children once played or perhaps a roadside business that helped parents put food on the table. maybe a guest house for passing tourists, whatever it was, it is now and forever part of a massive debris field that runs the length of the beloved she river. instead to pulse our district in valleys, across nepal, homes and businesses have been swallowed up by major floods. 3 times this year, we saw from the latest illusion, october,
1:45 pm
the number of dead and missing is still rising. and the list of damaged and destroyed buildings is getting longer. many nepalese have been living in limbo for months. now, nadia is a mother and a grandmother. she and her husband invested everything they had in trout farms that sat at the river's edge a trade they had hoped to pass on to the next generation. what they spent years building was gone in a day for both my son and husband were trying to save the farm. but then we had to run as we were watching the flood waters came and swept away all the trees. and we took the kids and escaped the next morning. we came back to have a look and everything was gone. her daughter beemer ran the family cafe, which also became a casualty of unseasonably extreme. whether she says she now feels lost here though miss like me. oh dear,
1:46 pm
i could not have even imagine what happened. we sacrificed a lot to build that place and it didn't even last 2 years. i'm very sad about that . thousands of people across in nepal, just like bema, have lost everything, and are trying to rebuild their lives from scratch. families displaced by the floods are living in these makeshift camps for now, but they're waiting for more semi permanent housing to be built further up hill. now that's going to be made out of corrugated metal sheets, not necessarily the best protection against the coming winter cold. but even though the river has receded, the idea right now is to get as far away from the water line as possible and onto more solid ground. but even uphills, that may not be so easy to come by. disaster management experts are warning that areas in the himalayan region that saw heavy rains are now at greater risk from landslides. zane basra, the old jazeera cindy,

this city known as the birthplace of the american revolution hasn't elected a republican to run it in almost 100 years. and it's never elected a woman or a person of color, no matter which candidate wins the mayor's race marks an historic 1st for boston. but it also represents divisions in the democratic party, both here and nationwide. the city has a long history of racial tension and one quarter of its population is african american. there were 3 black candidates on the primary ballot, but none made it into tuesdays run off a fact that's led to recriminations among some boston democrats. over the course of this campaign, i've made a few promises that i'm able to keep this work is too important to simply do. behind a podium ac city hall, it has to be done in community who has the support of sen, elizabeth warren, and others from the most liberal wing of the party. but she's also caught the attention of some special interest groups who've been spending money to defeat her
