debate. the latest report from the intergovernmental panel on climate change warned that it is now code red for humanity. british prime minister borisjohnson had said if we don't get serious about climate today, it will be too late for our children to do so tomorrow, so from ending coal mining and oil drilling to cutting air travel and keeping rich countries to their now delayed commitment to poorer ones, our panel will be put through their environmental places. let's meet them. was it quieting is the united kingdom secretary of state for business, and industrial strategy. the uk government are hosting the cop26 conference and so young people have every right to be angry at the lack of action on climate change. the uk is committed to net to zero x 2050 but will the government sanction a controversial new oil field in the north sea. the decision on the oilfield field in the north sea. the decision on the oil field off shetland will be made soon and maybe we will
1:33 pm
finance my what the decision will be. gina mccarthy is the first white house national adviser. as well as working for preston biden she also served president obama as the head of the environmental protection agency and says we are cop26 to accelerate action and americans not have entirely clean hands. it is the fracking capital of the world which comes with its own environmental concerns. we also have the new prime minister of greenland. the country the president trump wanted to buy. earlier, the youngest prime minister in the world at the age of 3a said, with the arctic warming at a rate three times faster than the rest of the world, greenland is experiencing the world, greenland is experiencing the drastic changes first hand. diego messer is columbia's minister of mines and energy. previously he saw the energy transformation policy in the country which included increasing the share of renewable energy from i% to i2%, but colombian

exports of coal, the worlds dirtiest fossil fuel, exports of coal, the worlds dirtiest fossilfuel, havejumped in 2021 and deforestation continues to increase despite promises from the government to reduce it. welcome to you all. so, let's go to our first question from tecau tojennifer who is on the banks of the mississippi and missouri. your question, please 7 dakota jennifer. my missouri. your question, please 7 dakota jennifer._ missouri. your question, please 7 dakota jennifer. my question is what are the plans — dakota jennifer. my question is what are the plans for _ dakota jennifer. my question is what are the plans for effective _ are the plans for effective international collaboration with neither the chinese prime minister or vladimir neither the chinese prime minister oeradimir putin neither the chinese prime minister or vladimir putin attending cop267 kwasi kwarteng first of all. how do we make sure this isn'tjust blah, blah, blah without the two leaders. i think the fact that the two leaders aren't here is not actually that significant because what you are seeing in glasgow is literally thousands of people from all over the world coming together to tackle
1:35 pm
climate change, and i think dakota's question is quite right, it's not just a question of words, we have actions and things like powering past the coal alliance and move away from: there will be an undertaking to do that and we are committed for a joint international stand on electric vehicles. these are substantive things, kirsty, they are notjust substantive things, kirsty, they are not just words. substantive things, kirsty, they are notjust words. they substantive things, kirsty, they are not just words. they are declarations which followed by action. �* , declarations which followed by action. �* declarations which followed by action. but boris johnson asked the chinese prime _ action. but boris johnson asked the chinese prime minister _ action. but boris johnson asked the chinese prime minister to - action. but boris johnson asked the chinese prime minister to bring - chinese prime minister to bring forward the commissions from 2030 to 2025 and there's been a resounding silence. there's been a huge movement in the chinese position in the last two years and i was made energy minister two and a half years ago. i energy minister two and a half years am, ., , ., energy minister two and a half years auo. ., , ., ., _ ago. i was told that rugby the trine are not committed _ ago. i was told that rugby the trine are not committed to _ ago. i was told that rugby the trine are not committed to net - ago. i was told that rugby the trine are not committed to net zero. - ago. i was told that rugby the trine| are not committed to net zero. last year they were committed by 2060 and i completely agree that they could be persuaded that they could be out having more ambitious targets for the fact they've acknowledged the problem and they have a net zero

1:40 pm
financial encouragement they need. i think we came here fully prepared to meet our commitments and we are quadrupling what we had done before and we are also starting up a new initiative with other countries that is all about the developed world actually providing the support that the developing world needs. there is no question in president biden in his remarks today that he did not hold any hunches in terms of admitting that we have enhanced responsibility to help the rest of the world and that is what we intend to do. it the world and that is what we intend to do. . , . the world and that is what we intend to do. ., , ., the world and that is what we intend to do. .,, ., , ., to do. it was a strange look when president biden _ to do. it was a strange look when president biden went _ to do. it was a strange look when president biden went to - to do. it was a strange look when president biden went to see - to do. it was a strange look when president biden went to see the l to do. it was a strange look when - president biden went to see the pope and the motorcade was 85 cars longer normally it is a5, that is not a good look, is it? i normally it is 45, that is not a good look, is it?— normally it is 45, that is not a good look, is it? i went to visit the pope _ good look, is it? i went to visit the pope once _ good look, is it? i went to visit the pope once awhile - good look, is it? i went to visit the pope once awhile ago - good look, is it? i went to visit the pope once awhile ago and | good look, is it? i went to visit l the pope once awhile ago and he drove up in very small fiat car, so we know that this is all very
1:41 pm
challenging and we know that transportation is now the biggest greenhouse gas polluter at least in the us, so we have to make change and that is what we have to do but it's going to take more than looking at whether or not it's a big motorcade. bill at whether or not it's a big motorcade.— at whether or not it's a big motorcade. all of these little actions matter. _ motorcade. all of these little actions matter. everybody i motorcade. all of these little i actions matter. everybody wants motorcade. all of these little - actions matter. everybody wants to see these little actions and on that very question, do you agree with borisjohnson, that plastic recycling is not what this is about. surely everyone has a duty to do what they can. i think that is true but there are big issues. the financing issue was raised is critical and as you say, we said this in 2009 and that is why in the british government i've always maintained we have got to have an international coalition and we have to bring people to be as good as their word and that is what we're trying to do and that is one of the key points, as gina said, of the conference this year. in terms of

hello. not as chilly compared with the past few days but because we have the milder weather, it usually comes with plenty of cloud and that is the case with lots of cloud around and there will be sunshine here and there but from the cloud comes rain and it will get windier as we go through the day and it's all due to this low pressure between us and iceland. the heaviest of the rain is in the northern half of the country going into the early afternoon but the weather front moves southwards and will bring clear skies to scotland and northern ireland,
1:58 pm
so after the heavy rain this morning and the rain we have at the moment, that will gradually push into northern england and turning wetter here. the south and east will see splashes of light rain and drizzle but many places will be dry and a bit of sunshine at times but the best of the afternoon sunshine is later on in scotland and northern ireland and there are showers in the north. temperatures up on recent days and that will be tempered by the strengthening winds. a blustery evening and outbreaks of rain and drizzle and if you are off to any displays, be careful, because very windy weather further north with frequent showers in the far north of scotland. because of the breeze picking up, temperatures shouldn't drop away but it will feel cooler than it has done on the nightjust gone and the winds really are a feature at the end of the night in tomorrow morning. effectively between two weather systems as we go through sunday but the one from today is only slowly clearing away and on the back edge we will see the strongest winds in the morning. maybe 80mph across parts of northern scotland which could cause travel and power disruption and even damage. gales as far south as the north—west coast. a windy day on sunday and outbreaks

of rain continue on and off in the north of scotland on the odd shower elsewhere but overall a drier picture than today and a brighter picture with a better chance of sunshine although it will stay cloudy for some in the south—west and the north—east of scotland. a cooler day tomorrow with temperatures down in the north—west breeze but after a frosty night across eastern parts of the country, dry and bright through eastern england and elsewhere early morning sunshine gives way to cloud and rain across parts of scotland and northern ireland but temperatures are lifting again and a bit cooler along the eastern coast. the week ahead, the temperatures around average if not a bit above and one area of low pressure in the north is tying into the remnants of a tropical storm across the country and only a bit of rain on that and then high pressure builds for the end of the week. see you soon.
