10:02 pm
a request. it says by 2025 rich countries should double their funding to help poor nations quote with the impacts of climate change. previous draft didn't set a target date at all. 2023 is the new deadline for rich countries to give poor countries a $100000000000.00 a year in climate financing. the previous deadline had been 2020, and the draft. dhl express deep regret for missing that target. for the 1st time, fossil fuels are targeted with the draft and countries to move quicker in phasing out coal power and fossil fuel subsidies. but again, no date was set. this is our collective moment in history. this is our chance to forge a cleaner, healthier, more prosperous world. and this is our time to deliver on the high ambition set by our leaders. at the start of this summit,
10:03 pm
we must rise to the occasion. we will continue to champion y fi 5, which is our whole listener to start houses with subsidies must end. we must double adaptation financed from current level. often damage is to central press. to settle for workshops, we must strengthen action on lawful damage. and we need an article 6 resolution that results in via reduction the 0 sum offsetting era mustang with a minimum really to walk away bare minimum. and the challenge now is for those of us who are progressive, all along, we need to hold the lines. oh, fuck children or grandchildren. this is critical now. and our environment added to nick clark joined us now from glasgow. and as we were hearing him, those clips have been declarations and pledges made throughout the sun. but
10:04 pm
actually this is hang, it doesn't go far enough in terms of addressing that the climate emergency, where do we stand on the final day of cop 26. well ma'am you join us with a furious piece of negotiations. go on behind the scenes as delegations, roaming, corridors, putting pressure on other delegations to try to get them round to that point of view. there's even room as of another plenary being called to night, a painter is where all the countries gather together in one big assembly whole. that could mean at one of 2 things, either we're closer deal on lightly a we're a 1000000 miles away from a deal, which is more likely, or we're expect to be a 3rd text jew out at some point in the u. v. be interesting to see what that has in it. developing survived from overnight we had a global stop take of the 2nd text. be the 3rd tech late to the 2nd tech we had a global start take aware up with that. and actually that was pretty constructive. most countries were mostly supportive of it and there's
10:05 pm
a long way to go. but there was some hope that we're on the right track, the key issues for his young cole and fossil fuel subsidies. the remarkable thing is that, that is in the text notes, and that's the 1st time that that's happened. but will it stay in the text overnight? it has been watered down already, emissions loop to get countries to up that commitments at to 2022. previously from the parents agreement is 2025, so to bring it forward to 2022, there's a lot of kit back against that. and climate finance. the big one which could be a deal breaker here. at that whole story of a $100000000000.00, which is pro is way back in 2009, and it's being pushed for to 2023. and a lot of the developing countries are very, very angry about that. so they will want to see the anti out all of that one. let's forget and i guess, given what plugin who's a climate program manager illustrated biggest environment and ga, betsy australian convent conservation foundation. to give her what she will take of where we're at right now. i think they think ocean is, are holding by
10:06 pm
a thread right now. i mean, it's not unusual for a call like these to go at least 2448 hours over, but the breadth of the issue still in ply for which they still rate or bracketed text around it. the fact that so many of some, after these negotiations are happening by the public domain, we're seeing a lot in the media about what countries are wanting to get out of the final hours. and just how, like these negotiations are going up manes that i still think there's a lot of work to do in the next. so to $24.00, to $40.00 at alice. right. so what should we look out for as the discussions go on and coming out? well, the big one will be climate finance and loss and damage. the g 77, the conglomeration of devout developing countries, usually led by india, have now formed a block with very clear what radi instructions about. what i want to say am thy spain. many would argue, very patient waiting for the money that thy fame promised from rich countries to both help them developing a wide it doesn't increase their recent too much,
10:07 pm
but also helps them adapt to the catastrophic impacts of climate shineseal already experiencing. so that will be big, i'm call subsidies and the call text is never pain. a call phase at all, or a commitment to end or not build you call projects in occult text before that will be big, particularly for countries have still quite relied on call such as a strategy, but other countries as well. so that'll be want to watch his hand, which brings me, owns rules, trailer, your government. of course. what do you make of the tactics here at this quote, while strategy, spain missing in action at best, or a block at worst? the policies that australia brought to these call where a polling we were dragged, kicking, and screaming in the fall, few dies just for full. these call to a net 0 by 2050 target, a target that many countries had signed up to a long time ago. but in that announcement, there was no updated 2030 target. we haven't updated that since paris. there wasn't our new policies to look at how a strategy would phase out of fossil fuels,
10:08 pm
which still mike, up the vast bulk of our domestic energy. and way, the biggest export of coal and gas in the world. so those a lot of attention on the role australia would play. unfortunately, australia is yet again, buying a blocker in these negotiations and has driven down ambition in order to drive down out domestic ambition as well. or i got to leave with that. thanks very much. indeed for that i got refreshing from the australian conservation foundation. thanks very much indeed. i well, it's very much a waiting game. we've got that 3rd text coming up. once we see that we'll have a much better idea of where we're at and glossy. thanks. how much our environment at 10 o'clock. funny developments at that summit. thanks, nick. ah, cattle and the united states have reached a landmark agreement on afghanistan and yes, secretary of state antony blank and announced that from now on till i will represent the interests of washington in campbell cast. i will assume the role of
