2:01 am
end illegal deforestation by 2028. but the reality on the ground means that could be a hard promise to aid agencies demand urgent access along the boundaries, poland borders, thousands of migrants remain stuck for yes. another freezing night ah, former donald trump aid steve bannon has been formally charged with a criminal act for disobeying a congressional order. the 67 year old was chief scotch just in trumps white house . he was subpoenas and refused to testify in front of the congressional committee investigating the attack on the capital. on january, the 6th, the committee is trying to determine the origins of the attack that was planned by trump supporters to stop the certification of president biden's 2020 election. when
2:02 am
. let's get more details on this now from chris and slamming in new york. kristen tell us about these charges and house nick nail where there are 2 contempt of congress charges one for failing to testify before the house committee and another failing to produce documents requested by the committee. steve van, in the long time adviser to the former president, was subpoenaed and asked to appear by the committee that is investigating the january 6 capital breach. they say that they had reason to believe that he had information regarding the balance that took place that day. they point to statements, he made the day before the january 6 attack on the capital in a podcast in which he said that extreme events were going to happen and quote, all hell is going to break loose on the following day. so the house wanted to hear
2:03 am
what steve been and had to say when he didn't show up. they voted him in contempt of court. that finding was turned over to the courts in the united states. the u. s . attorney presented it to a so called grand jury, who found that there was reason to move forward with criminal charges against the president's former adviser. and if he's found guilty of these charges, he could face up to a year in prison on each one as well as a significant fine. and what does that actually mean going forward for the committee that january 6 committee looking into what happened on that day? well, steve bannon isn't the only person who's refusing to cooperate with this select committee, citing the president's claims of executive privilege. so this sends a message to other trump allies that they to could face criminal charges if they do
2:04 am
not comply with this house committee. mark meadows, 1st and foremost, the former chief of staff for president trump had a deadline of today to provide information to the house select committee. he declined to do so. and in the last week, more than a dozen new subpoenas have been issued to former white house officials, campaign staffers, others with close ties to the president. one federal judge has already voted against rejected. president trump claim of having executive privilege. that's what these witnesses had been refusing under that under that claim, have been refusing to cooperate, but this shows them that they could face criminal charges going forward if they continue to do so. okay, many thanks for that, kristen salumi the for us in new york. the you and glen at summit and glasgow has
2:05 am
gone into over time as delegates try to reach an agreement on a draft plan to protect the planet from catastrophic global warming representatives from nearly 200 countries on having their say on the plan. the core aim is to cap global warming at $1.00 degrees. now for this to happen, the well needs to cut emissions by 45 percent by the year 2030 and achieved carbon neutrality by the year 2050. the has been some progress. china and the u. s. the wells top greenhouse gas emitters say they will increase corporation deals to an deforestation. cut methane, gas, and phase out fossil fuels have also been made. but financing, the transition remains a key sticking point. and let's say carn pledges are not enough on the earth is currently on track for $2.00 degrees of warming. this is
2:06 am
our connected moment in history. this is all chance to forge a cleaner, healthier, more process as well. and this is all time to deliver on the high ambition set by our leaders. at the start of the summit, we must rise to the occasion. we will continue to champion $1.00, which is our whole listen to north star. possible subsidies must end. we must double adaptation finance from current level, often damage to central craft to settle for workshop. we must sprang from action unlocking damage. and we need an article 6 resolution that result in real reduction . the 0 sum offsetting era must end. with a minimum we need to walk away the minimum. the challenge now
2:07 am
is for those of us who are progressive to follow along, we need to hold the lines. oh, fuck children or grandchildren. this is critical. alaska's lives it as guy now to speak at to our environment, edison neck, clark, neck. so these discussions have now gone into over time and so clearly have you where do things stand in this latest round of negotiations? yes, money not on the face. we're all very quiet here in glasgow. hundreds of observers and journalists have gone back to the hotels for the nights, gets arrest ahead of what's going to be a busy day tomorrow. but behind the scenes and lots of negotiations ongoing, we heard from the cop president, alex shar mother. and he's told us recently that sir, there are intensive consultations going on right now. and on through the night with
2:08 am
the various negotiating blocks to try and find some common ground on the next iteration of the tax. and we're expecting that that's a 3rd one. we'll get back tomorrow at 8 o'clock in the morning. and after that, they'll be a meeting of all the countries involved. they'll talk about every bit, they'll argue about it for a bit, then they'll go back to the respective and negotiating blocks. and then in the afternoon, alex homer says it will be a mass plenary where all the countries will come together. and he says at that point, he's hoping to get some sort of resolution of glasgow. pat, if you like it, it will be a miracle. if that does happen, i suspect it'll go on a bit longer. possibly, it's like possibly into sunday. it's a very complex set of negotiations. you can have a lot of situations where negotiating teams will be calling their capitals on particular negotiating issues, especially when it comes to issues like coal and so forth. phasing out coal, a big part of it, it's made it into the text is been watered down since the 1st draft, and we'll see if it survives the night to night into the 3rd draft to morrow emissions. another big factor this move are to get countries to provide new
2:09 am
commitments for next year. and then there's that big issue possibly the deal breaker of climate finance. not just the $100000000000.00 a year that was promised way back in 2009 and now will be delayed until 2023. but also that issue that we were hearing just a little while ago about loss and damage. where by money is given to developing countries who are facing the worst effects of climate change, and for them for the g 77 group of developing nations that is a red line. if the rich countries don't up the anti provide the money that they need, then this whole deal is off. let me pick you up on that emissions point. the well does need to cut emissions by 45 percent by the year 2030 in order to meet that global warming target of $1.00 degrees. how far would you say this conference has gone to achieve those targets?
2:10 am
not very far at all. i mean that's the whole thing is it's huge gap between where the science says we need to be and where we actually are. so remember what we're trying to get at hair is, is keeping temperatures below 1.53 celsius above the 19th century above pre industrial levels. right now we're at 1 point one, nearly 1.2. already we've seen that she had the devastating impacts of that from floods to wild fuss, melting the ice cup and so forth. super storms. and the latest figures out from a carbon action tracker say that we're heading for $2.00 degrees celsius, which is above even the upper limit of the paras agreement. and that would be absolutely disastrous if that happened. so what they're trying to do now is to make sure that countries come back next year and offer up better, more intense commitments to try and bring that temperature down closer to one and a half degrees. a lot of the countries say, well that's not in the spread of the parents agreement, but the rest, the saying, hey, we gotta do it because otherwise, there's a huge problem for the world. many thanks for that nic clark,
2:11 am
our environment editor there for us in glasgow will climb my font financing is one of the key issues to be being discussed. had no house is the founder and executive director of the breakthrough institute. he joins a spies guy from berkeley in california. many thanks for joining the program. so financial support, the poor, more climate vulnerable countries from rich ones is always been a topic, hotly debated when you look at the text of the latest troughs on this issue. do you feel what's being promised goes far enough. i mean, i think the reality is that we haven't even delivered on the by just that were made over a decade ago. so i'm not sure why anyone is particularly confident that a new test will result in more money and moving from rich countries support countries to deal with the problem never has. in fact, most of the money that has sort of moved under the banner of climate adaptation and
2:12 am
finance today has mostly been money that's been actually re bashed. that was money that rich countries were giving the poor countries anyway. and then as part of these pledges, they moved it inside. well, this is part of our climate climate adaptation financed, but it's not actually new money. so i think the reality historically, i think it's unfortunately likely the case going forward is that when it comes to both adaptation and climate, medicaid mitigation, or countries are likely to continue to be on their own need. his time is this discussion about compensation for loss or damage already occurred. why is that so critical? well, i think, you know, poor countries have a lot of reasons to
2:13 am
want to make a strong connection. tied to we pledge is not actually treaty obligations from rich countries to attempt to compensate them for, for climate damages that have already occurred. i think in reality, doing so, it is extremely difficult just to actually determining that this particular band was directly due to these emissions made at this time by these countries. it's extremely difficult to do, and i think, you know, the has to be understood as sort of framework where just sort of poor developing countries want more support, more a from rich countries. there's good reasons why they want that, and this is a reason to do it. but i think the idea that we're going to establish
2:14 am
a really sort of clear link here and write that into some sort of treaty obligation for compensation. it's not going to happen. okay, many thanks for your views had not as found. the executive director of the breakthrough institute thanks for having us at your state has announced that catherine will represent the diplomatic interests of the united states in afghanistan. and catherine will assume the role of protecting power to facilitate formal communication between washington and cobble the u. s. doesn't recognize the taliban government in africa stone. there is still much to be done and that's going to stop and remains committed to continue. then it's a steady work alongside with the united states and partners on the world. we are dedicated to contributing to the severity of afghanistan and the safety and what will being of the afghan people there's still a future dialogue. today we'll discuss issues of mutual interest and literally

2:16 am
spilling out of canada, coming in across the lakes, temperatures falling way quite rapidly, and notice fabulous snow coming in as well. cross the canadian prairies star across the mountain stays pushing across into the northern states. northern plains of the u. s. a little dusting of snow, certainly around the lakes as well. some lake effect snow coming in here over the next couple of days. and those 2 gathering eastern seaboard drive up, it brightens up, but temperatures fall away. 11 celsius the top temperature in new york temperature dipping a little. i'm pleased to say, oh, i'm not really enough for a lake. probably better around 28 celsius, the elevator fi risk remaining in place here. meanwhile, washington state seeing more heavy ray and we'll see snow pushing across sir b. c. a once again. heavy rain, still affecting western side of caribbean, we have got some where to where the continuing here all the way into central america. for the most part, the eastern hours, a fine and sunny ah,

2:18 am
our former donald trump aid, steve bannon has been formerly charged with 2 criminal acts for disobeying a congressional order. he was subpoenaed and refused to testify in front of the committee investigation. the attack on the u. s, capital on january 6th. the u. s. active state has announced cass, i will represent the diplomatic interests of the united states and not galveston, cass, i will assume the role of protecting power to facilitate formal communication between washington uncommon and the un climate summit. glasgow has gone into overtime, delegates trying to reach an agreement on a revised draft plan aimed at protecting planet that one of the most significant commitments to come out of called $26.00 was the promised by brazil and others to n d 4 station this decade. about 60 percent of the amazon rain forest lies within brazil's borders and his destruction has gathered pace since president julia bull scenario to power. ballad smith reports from the amazon,
2:19 am
where under resource policing of deforestation means brazil's new commitment might be hard to realize. this patch of amazon rain forest has been illegally cleared and prepared for burning. and let been the main suspect denies all knowledge shorter. catching him red handed with a chain saw as little the environment police can do, whether the inspectors say they often feel i work is in vain. diffuse, it's difficult, it's tough. we're trying to preserve an area like this in the heart of the amazon, amazon. and when we get here, we see that people don't treat this nature with the affection and love that we have for our amazon. well, we know that our future depends on this. there are just $110.00 environment police and 20 inspectors covering an area bigger than spain and portugal combined. that makes brazil's commitment to end illegal deforestation by 2028. look like
2:20 am
a tall order. an estimated 11000 square kilometers of brazilian amazon was cleared just in 2020 releasing hundreds of millions of tons of c o 2 into the atmosphere. forest moving from being net thinks of carbon dioxide to net sources. the amazon is a sink, but lang clearance here in the brazilian rain forest means these areas are now emitting more carbon dioxide than they're absorbing little oh, bonding. and there's more pressure on the rain forest as the population grows and jungle is cleared for housing. see now goes to april. yes, the government does not have a public policy for the population, it is clear that there will always be this deforestation which homes are forced in nature. this is painful because preservation is a historical struggle of the indigenous people. we are, the ones will keep the forest to live and preserved until this day. oh,
2:21 am
there are 62 cities in amazon, a state, and a population of more than 4000000, with thousands more arriving every year, looking for work when ours and in the most cities are getting. and how can i say connected, more intensively in terms of urban development. so in the next decades, we will have a huge metropolitan area at the local scale urban ization means, for example, what we see here, the destruction of this urban rivers. and so it diminishes and it compromises the quality of for the urban ecosystem. the destruction of the brazilian amazon has intensified under the presidency, jaya ball, sanara, a vocal global warming skeptic got out. so activists are waiting to see proof of his government's new commitment to cutting emissions. there's a long way to go. if brazil is to regain the position, it once held as a world leader in reducing deforestation. bernard smith,
2:22 am
al jazeera in the brazilian amazon the european commission says it won't be intimidated by threats from batteries to cast off russian gas in a growing argument over migrants, thousands of people remain stuck at the country's border with poland. but european officials have been involved in efforts to stop the flow. e says valerie is directing people to the border in retaliation. the sanctions that in barbara reports oh, in the dog as dogs bark a child cries out daddy. while polish troops room were seen along the razor wire all parts of a standoff that's been going on for weeks now. oh oh wow. but winter's arriving. and on the polish side, local activists warning that they can't cope what they're demanding, the government in warsaw that recognized the agencies access the borders and with better, russ saying 10 refugees and migrants have already died on polish territory on yet
2:23 am
published on what's come on. you thought, no, we've been responding to the situation to save lives where the government has restricted access to humanitarian organizations to deliver aid and the restricted area. nevertheless, since mid october, we've been approached by over 3000 people that been trapped. and since the beginning of november, we've been asked by at least 900 people, they have no food, they have no shelter. they have no drinking water. when we meet them at the polish sites, they are usually in a very difficult mental and you know medical state. they are absolutely exhausted. they are terrified because obviously they are hiding in the forests for days just not to be caught by our border patrol. the scenes were filmed by russia. sputnik agency, apparently showing bela russian forces. handing out food is not clear how many of the thousands of people camped out. will have got anything. here as a woman, lies ill on the ground, people show a bellow, russian, god, what asthma inhaler she needs. some families have been given the basics, diapers,
2:24 am
medicine, and drinking water. but as the main response on either side continues to be a military one, these people are stuck in a political game. they can't control, and still they keep coming. oh, these images apparently show polish troops watching as bell russian security forces direct people along the border. when they get there, the only thing they seem to get in any quantity right now is would to burn honestly because of called her baby seek her eyes. her problem was out water, her baby the cushion closely. she crying because of the at 1st age emergency un security council meeting. western states issued a joint statements accusing belarus of putting migrant lives in danger for political purposes. and new european union figures show nearly 8000 people have tried to enter the block from bella, roost this year. but poland sony responses to bring in more troops. this is the
2:25 am
president visiting some of them on thursday. and every day that goes by more desperate people find themselves stuck in the forest. nadine baba al jazeera, under the pray iranian paramilitary for supporters continue to protest last month election was out in iraq. demonstrate as want the balance. we counted manually g c allege, vater ford married underweighed has more from baghdad. possessors have moles dip closer to the gate of the green zone. and but does, these are supporters of the pro iranian political parties. that last and the parliamentary elections, recent anger has been, has been figured by then i was meant recently made by the supreme council of judiciary that the vote rigging claims in the parliamentary elections have no legal standing. now that means that the electoral commission is moving forward to endorse
2:26 am
the initial results of the election. and that, of course is not in favor of that through iranian political parties. that last many cease and the parliamentary elections. they say that they say that unless consensus as reaching between the rival, parliamentary blocks between that i have on a political part parties, then they will continue protesting here looking roads near the green zone. most of these protests out of minutes, the individuals, even in civilian custom, but the minutes the individuals that a members of the pup without a mobilization forces the military wings of the pro iranian political parties. that last many seats and election and many of them here say that the only
2:27 am
way that they can leave the area as that then parties take part in forming the government. but if that happens, if they're through iranian political parties that are accused of corruption accused of mismanagement, accused of runing, the state funds and the state in institutions, if they take part in forming the new government, then then that would bring the country back to square one back to 2019 when her protest as it rose up against her robson, lebanon's government is failing its people. that is the verdict of the un envoy on extreme poverty who is visiting the country olive yet the shooter says lebanon is in danger of becoming a failed state. in a hollow reports from barrett,
2:28 am
the un human rights council sent an envoy to lebanon to look at how the government here has been addressing one of the world's worst economic crises. olivia or the shooter, spoke to those affected officials, as well as the donor community, which he said is running out of patience with the government for failing to reform the system. and it's not just the international community who lost trust in them. when i told many people about my mission, when i spoke to families who are destitute in bush homage in the body, in bob bake, they often assert murphy. dolly. there is no state the have nots confidence in the ability of the state to provide a response. so he, this is the un envoy explained in detail how hears of long standing inequalities, the lack of social protection systems, and an economic model that benefited the rich contributed to the collapse. for
2:29 am
example, the connections between politicians and the private sector reached the highest levels of political power in lebanon. 18 out of 20 banks had major shareholders linked to political elite. lebanon is also one of the most unequal countries in the world where some 10 percent of the population holds nearly 70 percent of the wealth . while 40 percent of public revenue comes from taxes that affect the poor. the authorities robin blame for decades of mismanagement and corruption have failed to stop the economic collapse. it took 13 months of political bickering before they agreed on a new cabinet in september. but it hasn't been able to convene in the past months because of a new political crisis. there should tear blame government in action for what he called a manufactured crisis that ruined lives and condemned the majority of the population into poverty. the population is facing unprecedented challenges,
2:30 am
impoverishment is widespread. i saw scenes in lebanon that i had not imagined i would ever see in the middle income country. the you and envoy didn't describe lebanon as a failed state, at least not yet. he did say it is headed in that direction with a government failing its population. that doesn't believe it will work. and the public's interest. santa hunter, l shahida, beirut, american pop star britney spears has been released from her father's control. after nearly 14 years. fans waiting outside the court cheered and cried. as the court's decision was confirmed, the singer has spent the past 5 months facing the conservatorship which prevented her making any personal decisions. ah, this is al jazeera, these, your top stories for.
