8:03 pm

8:05 pm
the latest declarations. some of may big gestures, some of mates, more gestures. what is evidently wanted from the re listen to the un secretary general way his world at people what to do, what the states should do at really that his laid it on the line. he's hoping that the could be some final jester, but it doesn't look like that. a point is this. if they don't go for this or within the year than they may lose control of keeping 1.5 celsius alive. all right, we'll leave it there. thanks. so much andrew simmons, me your pin commission, says it will not be intimidated by threats from bell russian president, alexander lucas shanker. after he said he could cut off rush and gas applies to europe. this comes as thousands of refugees remain stuck at bella luce, his border with powder in court, in a political stand off that shows no sign of ending nothing. barber reports. oh, in the dog as dogs bark a child cries out daddy. while polish troops film were seen along the razor wire
