this is g.w. news that live from berlin tonight the trillion shereen plan can't save the planet from global warming a team of swiss sciences is says one trillion new trees would be enough to absorb our c o 2 emissions they would cover a landmass of the size of the united states but the scientists believe there is plenty of room will it work also coming up tonight in venezuela both sides of the political divide celebrate the nation's independence day but the humans human
9:01 pm
rights chief says there's little to be happy about with allegations of abuse is an extrajudicial killings by security forces and sudan celebrates a breakthrough in its political crisis after months of protests the ruling generals agreed to share power with civilians for the next 3 years how valuable is this plan for a peaceful transition to democracy. i'm born coffee it's good to have you with us tonight we begin on a positive note in the often gloomy predictions about global warming a team of swiss scientists says that fighting climate change is easier than we think we simply have to plant trees lots of trees at least a trillion of them all over the planet in a study published in the journal science today the scientist. say it's the cheapest
9:02 pm
and most effective solution to fighting global climate change those one trillion trees would cover. the united states but the researchers say the earth has plenty of room for new trees. the best remedy for the climate nature that's what researchers at a direct technology institute are saying by their calculations planting trees is the most efficient way to beat the climate crisis they say it is possible to halt global warming at a price of $1.00 degrees celsius and that 2 thirds of c o 2 emissions caused by human activity could be absorbed by reports station as soon as we start default over stories start to be affected it started back in the ecosystem ok but you know that to reach that total amount of course is going to take several decades the earth is covered with $2800000000.00 hectares of forest researchers say 9 $100000000.00 additional hector's could be planted that's about
9:03 pm
a 3rd of what already exists space for the new trees could be found mainly in russia but there is also enough room to plant trees and other industrialized countries according to researchers they've been looking for natural solutions and to restore destroyed ecosystems. they intentionally left out cities and farmland few. really and courageous. systems so we should respect the local diversity so we do not like advice people to plant flooring species or exotic species or species that grow faster and maybe accurate a bit of carbon faster we were just the natural regeneration reforestation is not the only solution but it may buy us time to change our habits. let's bring in the scientists that we just saw in that report john francoise best known of the swiss federal institute of technology in zurich it's good to have you
9:04 pm
on the program ok we're talking about a trillion new trees i mean that that that is a lot of trees is there really enough space on the planet where conditions where there is space and where the conditions are just right to grow trees well this is what we did in our study basically it's the 1st time that 3 minutes ready to quantify to that of these quanta that this quantitative approach scares me to know what can be done on the planet and the thing is that modern which is predicting where we can put back some trees in the natural environment and not try to call system is only based basically on priming that down to but i think that's how and i think that that's basically just on this coming nation of about a viable those that we observed in natural conditions were able to see that cocaine and natural condition with those variables we can have that amount of trees and this is based on that we're able to extrapolate to an older condition all of
9:05 pm
underworld where we can have some trees just based on those and that conditions and is is there a certain type of tree that is better for helping to fight climate change or can we plant you know any kind of jury. no i think it's a good question because it allows me to make an important point i think it's the idea here that we are defending is that we needed to restore did not try to cause the stand which means that we do not like support the idea of planting. pine trees like everyone around the globe like what we support as an idea is to constrict restore the look out of natural ecosystems so we need to respect their look at species in other to preserve their look at a bit of diversity because maybe as you know or like all the forest ecosystem they shelter about 80 percent of the biodiversity that you can find on land and we can manage to put they that by that is the only for restore the local species so it's very important to respect those look at conditions you know i think it's
9:06 pm
interesting the plan is getting the public attention that it's getting right now we heard this week that the president of brazil is planning to accelerate the cutting down of more of the rain forest the amazon rain forest so my question to you and society is do you think that there is political will to plant a trillion trees. yeah you are it's about problems 1st like underline the problem of deforestation which is of course like we don't hear about restoration bias a bit of time in the fight against climate change but of course if we continue to differ as a side of it it's all from nothing so that's the 1st thing and then yeah it's i think that we have more like a common agreement between scientists about the source of climate change since more than 30 years now and since one to 30 years now you have international reporters tried to push bikes to take some decision and we still lack of those decisions so of course i'm not completely up to me but we need to continue to fight and here
9:07 pm
what we hope is that's like oh are they purr basically we provide you know a paper so we provide a tool and this tool can be used by anyone it can be used by citizen it can be used by n.g.o.s it can be used by someone agencies so anyone basically can take over and i can get new arguments you know that maybe to pull the government to take actions and you know this is something that is easy for people to do anyone can plant a tree but let's let's assume that we did this we have a trillion new trees does that mean that we can continue to drive our cars you know run the air conditioning use fossil fuels that have created this problem to begin with. now exactly you know and this is this is what i was saying just before it's basically a free man issue a story of a thing and bias about 20 years so basically it gives us 20 years to change the way we are living on the planet you know that to reach way of living on a planet which is which has like no impact on the environment so it's just buying us time if we continue to do like the business as well as the same kind of economy
9:08 pm
the same kind of way of living of course it's just like disposing postponing the problem so it's just a bit transmitting the problem to younger people again you know people you have a trillion trees could buy 2 decades that's not a bad deal i would say john francoise best known from the swiss federal institute of technology mr president we appreciate your time tonight thank you thank you. government rallies have been reported in venezuela as the country marks its independence day a large crowd of government demonstrators also rallied in the capital caracas led by self declared president wanted why though many protesters were calling for an end to alleged torture in the country that after a report by the united nations head of human rights which accuses security forces of abuses and extra judicial killings and that's what this government says that that report is biased. are joining us now from our latin
9:09 pm
america desk is jennifer cumming no guns alice jennifer good evening to use. the u.n. report it's accusing the. regime of murder torture repression i mean it's a long list year. what's the reality here about the situation. well the report vindicates what observers n.g.o.s and independent media has already been announced for months and basically what this is is a special forces that maduro has deployed to the poorest areas of caracas and what they do is they come house to house they knock on and they basically take members of the family away male members of the family and they as as it has been alleged they had they killed them and so this is something that they have done to crack down this scent in venice those poor areas because these are the areas where
9:10 pm
the government has traditionally been strong and if they lose these areas they know that that would probably spell the end and so for the opposition this is this is something that's very satisfying to finally have confirmation from the u.n. the highest human rights organ that that this is true that this is happening so so this this is great for. venezuelan opposition and it could help galvanize a reality as a cause but for the government it's for the government it's very damning but the brewer port also shows that that the humanitarian crisis is happening a blames the mother a government for the humanitarian crisis so it is a very very very comprehensive and detailed situation explanation of what's happening on the ground. that it will make a difference in the situation on the ground because it seems that one. seems that there has lost the momentum that he had as you know several months ago. yes this is exactly the question the problem for the opposition is that they're on their 6
9:11 pm
months now of this push that they honestly thought was only going to last one or 2 months they were hoping that the government would fall and it just hasn't and the question is how much of the population has seen this report it has information about this report it's difficult venezuela has suffers from a lot of media crackdown and it has a lot of censorship and the question is beyond the opposition who who knows about this and that's that is what we don't we just don't know but maybe find it maybe we find out today if if this is able to give the opposition new blood all right jennifer communicants all is from our latin american desk jennifer thank you very much thank you now for some of the other stories that are making headlines around the world iran has threatened to seize a british ship in retaliation for the capture of an iranian tanker by british forces on thursday royal marines boarded the vessel off the coast of gibraltar over suspicions that it was breaking european sanctions by taking the oil to syria

9:16 pm
his plans for bringing peace to his country. it's because people didn't push really distance because they don't see where mr president we've seen those sides and tried to back their positions and standard set of what the next steps to peace in this is . the next step will be further talks in man schools teach us as part of the trilateral contact group to agree on dismantling the concrete defenses in place on both sides. at the last meeting our side was ready to take everything down in the space of a day. we need everything we could to make that happen if. the other side told us they need 8 or 10 days to do the same. and we're waiting for a signal from their side ceased on the bill so it can happen simultaneously at the boys will see the next question will address i hope will be an exchange of
