a lot of fear. and this is going to take years come back and fix itself. so the poverty and the inequality in south africa is going to get worse before it even has a chance to get better. the south african national defense force has now been deployed by the government for only the 4th time in 3 decades. to re establish land order as businesses are plundered by angry mobs that out numbers or countries police i say 5 to when but i was in mind about happening here now is that people started breaking them to shop soon as i saw or more. but i think the thing i went over because we want former president jacobs numa and so i talked to a guy to would be fighting if even if the president does do that, will carry on because we are hungry to destroy it

6:21 pm
pushback from industry and poor a. you countries, his european commission president sort of funder line. today, i'm proud to say that we have made goods on our commitments. europe is now the very 1st continent that presents a comprehensive architecture to meet our climate ambitious. we have the goal, but now we present the roadmap to how we are going to get their. our package aims to combines a reduction of emissions with measures to preserve nature and to put jobs and social balance at the heart of this transformation. i speak to him at his book, he's director of european energy policy. the energy transition, think tank i go are and a give and thanks for joining us on data we business. just tell us all these proposals realistic from the technical perspective. yes indeed, they are realistic. they have been many studies done by the commission,
6:22 pm
but also from us identifying the measures which can be taken off at the price lower than continuing to burn fuels. so it's really you're paying consumers ultimately going to be honest, that paying for these policies, because a lot of it involves companies paying more, presumably, passing those costs on to their customers. so there will be some areas where prices will go up like this. so if it is concerning production based on, also eating your home with, with oil will become more and more expensive. driving fuel engine vehicles will become more expensive. on the other side, clean electricity will become cheaper and hitting your home with renewable electricity. heat pumps will become cheaper driving electric cars will become
6:23 pm
cheaper than driving a constant combustion engines. so it's a mixed back. what is clear is the signal sends from the commission to since you are governments and citizens in europe. now we're getting serious about the kind of targets that we set ourselves. no time to waste. let's face the 100 cousins on the measures needed. but on there a few things missing from this. for example, there is nothing in this to encourage individual to change the behavior. of course, in the proposal from the question they're proposing european, those europeans, all, most of large governments to some extent companies. they're very rarely, directly obliging citizens. and what will happen, of course, is that some of that typically, which relate to profit fuel consumption, for instance, long all sites will become active with other activities will become more
6:24 pm
affordable. and so they're protecting the climate. so you will, as a citizen and europe see chance, and in physical terms, we need to see chance. we will see a method ramping up off renewable electricity. over the next decade, we will see a search and fully electric vehicles. we will have what we call a renovation. waste of the existing building. stock will need to be renovated because they do not know consistent with claims to try to see a requirements. and in many cases, businesses need to chance their where they're operating because the business model is not consistent with time to try to plan. perhaps overestimate how fast that change can actually come about. for example, that aerospace fuels are a long way from being anything other than highly polluting it
6:25 pm
really depends on the sector. so in some sectors to take the example of the public sector. we know renewable electricity is the way to go forward on to wind also wind solar p v. in most cases, the already cheaper today building a new then continuing to burn fossil fuels in a gas or coal fired to generate us. so this is the reality in the market already today. some of the measures proposed now, for instance, increasing the price on emitting carbon in europe was accelerate those changes. so we see to call phase out in europe, continent wide by 2030. this is what the numbers are telling us. and so it's just really a question more not of the technical possibility of to my son. but barry, they can push the change of fasten by forcing companies to need to do it to save
