see the path that is burning across europe today from germany to belgium to britain high temperature records were center and in some places for the 1st time red alerts were issued and of cicero warning that mother nature is hot. possibly lethal. berlin this is the day. one year it's the fastest time the conflict in mainland france since the age of 6 i grew up here but it's the 1st time that i think spirits that it be exceptional fact of the year is that temperatures have risen very high. we need to start big players and doing something about it listening to the experts we receive. these last years. more and more posts all the stories we have
good reason to be worried. anyone who's closing the ice to it and then trumped it's a real shine the problem is what we're leaving to the next generation. and the not so i'm. also coming up you'll meet 2 sisters from saudi arabia who are hiding from their family and their government they say they had 2 choices lose the only home they've known or lose the only lives they have to hate flee i only just me for 3 hours to alex and not from him because i always have like my father where if he catch me of course he will kill me. oh to our viewers on p.b.s. in the united states and all around the world welcome we begin the day hotter than it's ever been before a heat wave is scorching western europe and. sending the mercury to heights that
had never been recorded until today now this is a very hot summer yes that is true but meteorologists have been confirming today that it is climate change that is making these unprecedented high temperature spikes possible and as i said at the start of the program you only need to travel with the sun to see what's happening the record highs today there the proof let's take a look at the numbers here in germany the new record high today reached 42.6 degrees celsius that's more than 108 degrees if you work in fahrenheit in the netherlands they saw it as well 40.4 degrees celsius belgium 40.6 in the u.k. in cambridge they measured a new record high of 38 point one degrees celsius and france in paris the same record high temperature as in germany 42.6 degrees celsius shattering the old record by over 2 degrees nowhere has it sizzle today like it has in france people
across the country they were told to avoid travelling to work from home if they could children's nurseries were closed and in the heart of paris a warning today from the chief architect in charge of rebuilding notre dame the cathedral roof parts of which survived a fire earlier this year may not survive a heat wave this week. well i can you can make it. i'm very worried about the heat wave because as you know the cathedral suffered from the fire the beams came down but also from the shock from the water from the firefighters. the masonry is saturated with water it hasn't moved it's stable we placed sensors everywhere and we haven't detected any movement since the beginning. of what i fear is that the joints or the masonry as they draw you lose their cohesion and their structural qualities and that all of
a sudden the vault gives way this will be amazing this record heat a threat to architecture and to infrastructure in britain commuters were advised today not to take the trains in the south and southwest of the country you see right there the tracks are buckling due to the extreme heat which means the risk of darrelle increases and in belgium today for the 1st time ever authorities issued code red warnings due to the heat advising people to take extra precautions which means it's best to stay inside and to talk about the weather. while they say it's global warming i think they just that the weather changes. course it's climate change there's no doubt about that it goes without saying the ice caps are melting everybody knows that i still don't know if not listen. we got the ice from the freezer but. simple. they were going to have.
to prevail newport he said he moved there's nothing green left for the animals to graze on. so we're having to bring in the hay harvest for them. that's usually used as winter stock so we're tapping into next spring stock even though it's only july and yeah i think i gave it to react like now. everyone like realize this now the serious. so it's like the response we don't like each one of us so i start changing things you know i think there's really something going on with climate change on like trump i'm convinced it's happening i notice in our house which is getting hotter if. we can all feel that it is getting warmer i'm joined now by someone who can also lay out the science and the facts to back up what we are seeing and feeling i'm happy to welcome here to the day clear find sinclair is
a research analyst with climate analytics she and her colleagues advise the un intergovernmental panel on climate change that's the body that helped make the paris climate agreement a reality so it's good to have you on the show these spikes in high temperatures unlike anything that has ever been recorded before talk to me about how we know that this is not only the weather but also the climate that is manifesting itself here right as you've explained we've seen terrifying records broken across western europe and many people will also remember the records that have broken in france earlier in june this year and many people also remember the heat wave that had last year and many parts of the northern hemisphere and the scientists really unequivocal him about climate change is making these heat waves west so if you look at europe climate change is making these heat waves more frequent but is also
making them more intense and most of us if we think about the wave last year scientists to show that this was 4 degrees more intense the peak temperature was 4 degrees higher than it would have been a century ago before we had climate change and we've had for gas you're saying that this heat wave is going to extend into the week into the weekend further north and they're actually talking about it increasing the temperature. even around the north pole right so what we have is we have a hot mass of abbots coming up from north africa and because of climate change this is hotter than it would have been in the pot it's not that but in addition it's flowing i have soil that is already pots this soil and france and spain has already experienced drought and the sun's effect their heating effect on dry soil is much more efficient than it would be on wet soil so we get even more teaching and it kind of fuels the finance of the heat wave as it heads up north and you know despite the various climate agreement i mean despite the work of people like you it
seems that our political leaders they remain reluctant to say on the climate crisis or catastrophe alarm and our work flying carbon footprint it just keeps getting bigger i want to show you an image that we found the day in social media it shows all flights that took off yesterday that's what you see right there those are all the flights that took off on the planet yesterday for the 1st time ever more than 225000 flights were tracked in a single day i mean that is a huge carbon footprint that is getting bigger when you as a climate scientists when you see this what goes through your mind. well obviously fly is one of the problems that we have to tackle i would say that actually in the end the net one of the big things that hair and gemini is really important is the phase out of funding fossil fuels burning coal and as you mentioned all the all of the governments of the world have signed up to the signed up to the power so green
meant agreeing to limit warming and now we need to see them put actions in place and as you said in a way a negative picture of the action so father have been committed to take us to 3 degrees which is way above what we want to see and as you said flights are continuing kolbein is continuing on the other hand i think there's a positive picture that renewable energy costs that are climbing and that governments and people around the world are starting to see the benefits that can come from taking action on climate change that can lead to cleaner safest cities quieter cities in general better lifestyles so there are many reasons to mitigate climate change you. a person who is 16 years old today i was reading your blog could very well be alive in the year 2100 and see the world that is 3 degrees celsius warmer than today and more than half of that person's life would be in a world that is one of the half degrees warmer than we have today but it's 60 year
old person today probably won't have to experience these temperature increases so this is an intergenerational inequality being presented through climate change how does that sit in to what we are talking about today. well exactly i mean climate change is a very unfair issue often the people who have contributed to the least to the problem of the ones that suffer the most in this case it's today's children and future generations who have not so far contributed to the problem that will experience fog great impacts in the future such as and creasing heat waves maybe they will be able to enjoy that some is because they will be popping. and unfortunately these young people and the least able they're not in positions of power to do so. about it and i think that's why it's been encouraging to see people young people coming out to the states to colac governments to account and say look we need to take action we need you to look after our future because if we don't do something now then it will be to name. their finds with climate analytics we appreciate you coming in sharing your insights thank you thank you.
for the new british prime minister boris johnson today presented parliament with a plan that he says will usher in a new golden age for a new global britain johnson presented his cabinet a cast of bright city years who are preparing for leaving the european union this year with or without a deal he said the brakes it back stuck at the border between ireland and northern ireland has to be scrapped and he again threatened to withhold the u.k.'s final payment to the european union of almost 40000000000 pounds if a new deal breaks it becomes a reality for all of this he received generous applause from his fellow tories but the opposition had everything for the new prime minister except the polls minister . a forthright boris johnson making his 1st address to parliament as prime minister
he repeated his promise to execute brigs it over 31st on any circumstances. i would prefer to leave the e.u. with a deal i would much prefer. i believe that it is possible even at this late stage and i would not try to make it happen. but certain things need to be clear. the withdrawal agreement negotiated by my previous has been 3 times rejected by this house its terms on which to bill to this parliament and to this country that european union he says should rethink its refusal to renegotiate remain to us we must turbo charge all preparation in. if they do if they do know we will of course have to really the u.k. without an agreement under article 50. the u.k. is better prepared for that situation than many believe. the opposition says johnson is setting a dangerous course that has called for
a new public vote i knew the country is deeply worried that the new prime minister overestimates himself those recklessly advocating jail won't be the ones who lose out if the prime minister has confidence in his plan once he's decided what it is he should go back to the people with that plan earlier johnson's cabinet met for the 1st time they've been labeled team leave dominated by hard line break city is johnson has set his government on course for a tussle with brussels. in puerto rico governor ricardo resell yo has announced that he will resign it comes after mass demonstrations in the capital san juan for bugged by an exchange of offensive chat messages between rochelle you know and colleagues at the top of
his government. when the messages leaked many puerto ricans demanded the politicians should step down. it's a quiet but tense moment as protesters listen to this latest announcement. then the jubilation takes over the streets of san juan puerto rico's governor carl rochelle your confirms he will step down at the mill i have come to the following decision with sadness i hereby announce that i will resign from the position of governor effect on friday august 2nd 2019. at 5 in the afternoon. and his decision to resign or c.e.o. is giving in to the pressure of mass protests that have mounted in the past 2 weeks they were set off by a leak that revealed he had exchanged offensive messages about homosexuals women and hurrican victims with his top advisers get him
a kid he wanted ricky to step down not only because of all the obscene it is an insult he said on the charts but also because of hoover corruption we have to put up with for decades now that we are going ahead and getting rid of the corrupt who believe they cannot be removed this is the start of a new era that within seconds they could remove a governor i hope they can also remove a fiscal control board for the. 40 year old across and you had to face the possible impeachment process over the scandal with his decision now he has become the 1st chief executive to resign in the short history of the us territory which has recently struggled with both an economic crisis and corruption. of their story is a familiar one but it doesn't make it less disturbing or less tragic the world has watched many times women from old conservative society such as saudi arabia risked everything to escape and to experience personal freedom
a high stakes gamble. for women who say going back would almost certainly mean well tonight we would like to introduce you to do work. 2 sisters from saudi arabia 2 young women who made the decision to leave behind the world and a family that they say could only give them a future full of abuse as you'll hear and see they are trying to find a new home hoping for a future that will be long to them one that will no longer hurt them. all they do out and have seen so far it's like this and changing hotels. that you are hiding from their families we can't say where they are because they are afraid of being found. 222 persisted 20. 1 her father took them to stumble for a holiday they decided to run away to escape years of violence and repression they
say her reason or no reason they're all this. if they ask something or want something and they say no i can't refuse treatment when they forced me to wear hijab when i was like 10 years. so i can't say no of course if i say no they will beat me so hot they took the decision to escape us says when her father wanted to marry her off and it was their last chance. and my father he told me i have friends of mine. he have 2 wife and he want me to be the 3rd one. when i ask him about his age he told him that he's one of the 50 and they don't care about their age and when i told him it was no he told me you can't say not. at all if you refuse the
marriage. toby cadman is the only person who always knows which. are in istanbul the u.k. lawyer 1st became aware of the case on twitter he's now supporting the sisters in their efforts to get asylum what are you seeing with the girls karen is it's consistent. the reoccur they keep us to the abuse that they suffered is also consistent with what we know about certain arabia so that you get the impression that this is not to young teenagers running away from home. during this one too early i mean this is something about being forced into. and as escape is not an isolated case again and again saudi women try to flee from their families when traveling abroad. just earlier this year and
a half mohammad made headlines for days the 1000 year old saudi woman barricaded herself in a hotel room in bangkok the united nations finally recognized her status as a refugee and she was granted asylum in canada where she now lives. do and hope for a similar outcome the sisters need asylum in assert country as soon as possible says their lawyer we believe that not only the father but the this our authorities have a lot to lose by these girls and girls that will. inevitably follow. in their own quest for freedom. so for that reason we think that there is a very real risk of them being talked to here. and are not facing deportation to saudi arabia at the moment turkish authorities have granted them temporary protection they're managing to make ends meet with donations day receive but as
long as there's no. long term solution they feel very much under threat. of course i always look at the window when they go. for a year out or are they like try to hide and. we always change our place every couple of days we change it. i'm afraid. the place. i'm a father searching for us i hate sleeping i only just leave for 3 hours. it's enough for me because i always have nightmares like my father you know where if he catch me of course he will kill me. do we change the location again. where they will wait and hope they can reach safety before their family finds them.
reports was by our correspondent julie hawn and is stamboul d.w. has reached out to saudi authorities asking for a comment on this story so far no response but we want to talk more about this situation and the situation of other women just like this and to do that i'm joined now by mohammed she's a human rights activists who advocates for the rights of women living within islamic majority countries as well as those who struggle under religious fundamentalism she joins me tonight from vancouver it's good to have you on the program i want to ask you do we know how many other kings is there or right now why that do and. well there have been projections oh to 3000. yeah every year caring for the
state of saudi. press is numbers that we definitely they're all right. very much yes in the thousands for sure very good. and what are the chances of women you know like these sisters. receiving asylum in a western country if in fact indeed they are or are able to to get out of saudi arabia. yes well i think a lot of women that i speak to are aware of the risks but they say you know even if i die it's better than the life i'm living now. there are 2 sisters in new york that work together face together and surrounding her there's a story out of that young girl tried to find a great a simplified airplane to satisfy waited. years for many many
very scary stories like this that will turn out and there are also stories like rob and many many other women and life from the made it sound that lots of other women have had made it great in the 1st they have to say i find it possible. even just living there a lot of free country sometimes they get approached by strange by trade and then find that they have just fathered their family and therefore they have brought shame to the surety these women are equated to paragraph inciting rape in the. it really to the situation that there are in. a lot of these that are just finding that their choices are really fight flight or freeze and they fight as a prisoner i think that's a little like little especially and lots and lots of.
information and fight ready as a shell like countless women that they know their names and so a lot of women just choose to just touch their space quietly swallowing their sadness while these are you know their depression and just living their lives living is there a socio economic factor here too i mean is it a privilege and economic privilege to be able to. even trying to flee i mean to be able to afford to go on a vacation to leave saudi arabia you know you can't be poor and do that and you know absolutely beyond a doubt exactly there are several privilege there you have to be at the station where you're going to be able to you have to take care of yourself and if you're going to go seek asylum in other country you're going to have to have some sort of financial aid out of taking care of yourself and that yes of course i can mention
just the fact that they didn't even be getting off here by going all that far because obviously big problems like very you know it is it's much more to follow. the money from another country that doesn't have the guardianship laws that start. casting yesman mohammed amin unfortunately we're out of time but one of the same thank you to taking the time to share your insights with this young man mohamed a human rights activist joining us tonight from vancouver thank you. well the day is almost done the conversation continues online you'll find us on twitter you know at the w. news you can follow me on t.v. to fuse the hash tag the day and remember whatever happens between now and then tomorrow is another day we'll see you then everybody.
