business leaders and health care professionals all agree that something has to be done and all bracing for things to potentially get worse. over the coming winter months. peter, all of a r. t. berlin and miller story were across to day judges in canada of rule that a comedian who joked about a disabled teenage singer did not breach the youngster's rights to dignity. comic mike ward hailed the decision by the supreme court as part of a growing backlash against council culture. i'm like o j. i one. this is a vess. i'm so happy. i think this is a good sign for comedy. i think this means the pendulum is about to swing the other way. comedians are going to be able to keep on doing jokes. i. we want to tell him about how i fell when i 1st heard that they yelled as it 13 years old to just think about gang because
10:11 am
a 40 year old man say so that you should guy, singer, jeremy gabrielle who is now 24, was born with a congenital disorder that causes scull abnormalities. now he fun, fame in 2006 and even perform for pope benedict. some years later mike ward begun mentioning gabriel's disability in his performances and defended his act by saying people shouldn't be afraid to joke about any subject. but gabriel's family filed a human rights complaint, but canada's highest court said the singer was targeted not because of his disability, but because of his fame. and while mister ward receive support from the comedy world, others still believe such jokes must face consequences. we had a lively conversation about it here on our tea with a panel of guest. let's take a look. you know, i agree with the court's conclusion. i mean that they acknowledge said that this was a nasty thing that was said, but you know, it doesn't go as far as to, you know, have
10:12 am
a legal financial consequences for this person. when mister word comes to your town, you have the option to not buy a ticket. you can ignore his podcast. you have the right to do all those things. but should he be prosecuted in a court of law? that takes it a bridge way too far. in my opinion, we have to sink about. he was a child, he was 13 years old. and i truly believe we should safeguard our children more because especially in this case he was not only a child, but he was and he still is disable. so you know, the must be a stall between hatred and comedy between violence, you know, and free speech. god to charge in and find a guy tens of thousands of dollars for a joke, comedy and joking. and freedom of speech is a human right. when did this change? this is nuts to me. and you know, i have to disagree with the, the woman who spoke before, but this, he was not making fun of his disability. he was primarily making fun of people who
10:13 am
thought the kid was so weak that you couldn't comment and make fun of his singing is still alive. he the only thing that from what is it looks a little different and he, you know, he has to wear a hearing aid. we shouldn't be treating people like so differently. i mean, have some respect for the guy. he's not some weekly that you need to defend like this. first of all, he was violence. verbal violence towards a child that was 13 years old and disabled child. i don't care if it wasn't a driver in his disability. he was suicidal after that. and you come be free to say whatever you want and be buying renting every way you want in that and you know in your job, i'm going to ship a nurse. if tomorrow i treat my disable, you know, employee like that, i would go to court because doubt consequences for every one of us. but what we do in our life, ok, it's not only speech is an action,
10:14 am
no one saying there should be consequences. but the argument is, the consequence should not be you being by tens of thousands of dollars and not be a lot of centrally not allowed to criticize someone. well, i just want to say this in response to that, a lot of comedians and, and i would like to think i'm one of them. it is possible for us to have 2 thoughts in our head at the same time. thought number one, that's a joke that a lot of us would never make. i personally would never make a joke like that. that's me. but another thought that i am also able to have in my head at the same time is i can see the dangerous slippery slope of having legal consequences for someone who chooses to make such a joke. even if i find it incredibly poor taste. and you know, free speech is just her virtue that i think is very important. and without it, i certainly wouldn't have a job. this is art. see still ahead, after claims of a high level cover of kenya reopens a decade old probe into the murder of
10:15 am
a young mother, allegedly at the hands of a british soldier that's coming up shortly. ah oh, driven by dreams shaped by concur sent those with who dares thinks we dare to ask for what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy confrontation,
10:16 am
let it be an arms race is on often very dramatic development. only personally, i'm going to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successfully, very difficult time. time to sit down and talk with ah burbock. no, it may be a global attempt to save the world from climate change about the huge cup $26.00 summit in scotland. it ain't impressing gratitude berg. the swedish activist lush darted to the event while addressing crowds at the fridays for future march in glasgow. it is not a secret that cup $26.00 is a failure. it should be obvious that we cannot solve
10:17 am
a crisis with the same methods that goes into it in the 1st place. protest events have also been held around the world to coincide with cup $26.00 with demonstrators echoing bread, a tune, berg school for concrete action from those in power. ah ah, with with the cup $26.00 conference is now into it's 2nd week kicking off the event,
10:18 am
the british prime minister warned of a doomsday scenario. while the american president valid up, the u. s. would lead by example in the fight against climate change. one of the world's biggest polluters, india announced a net 0 target by 2070. although that's 2 decades later than many had been hoping. while the recalls for more money to be handed to developing countries to help with their transition to other energy sources. indeed, i'll not issue ortiz southgate era has been looking at how complying with emissions goals may not be that simple for nations heavily dependent on fossil fuels. hope $26.00 is hair and it's going to save us from doomsday. i will 100 wild need is a setting out that goals for the future and that big ones. stop deforestation switched to renewables. they were emissions an ohio electric nasty thing nature like a toilets. we are digging oh,
10:19 am
it own grapes. humanity has long since run down the clock on climate change. it's one minute to midnight on that doomsday clock and we need to act. non client change is already ravaged the world. we only have a brief window left, rush to razor. our vision isn't to raise to me to task sounds great. the question is, who pay the biggest price for all these politicians padges? it's easy for bo jaron code to promise to turn off the light when they leave a room. but for others half way round the world saying no to fossil fuels is a luxury they just can't afford. if there is karl, we leave is the reason any call. we don't leave one person and east and india that, but over 4000000 others all over the country would likely agree. because that's how many people rely on coal to keep a roof over their heads and food on their pates. the issue goes well beyond india,
10:20 am
though, the developing large, ah, you know, it said to live industrialization stage, then you know what we can call one space our time. ah, we don't that they will not really do live. there are societies out of poverty called consumption. and call as a basis for the livelihoods will remain a fact for some time. in fact, tens of developing countries have come together terrified of what the grand goals of 0 emissions made up by rich nations will mean for then. this new goal, which has been advanced, runs counter to the paras agreement and is anti equity and against climate justice demands for net 0 emissions for all countries by 2050 will exacerbate further the existing inequities between developed and developing countries. it's not just that developing nations struggle as it is with fossil fuels. it's not just that millions of jobs will be lost so that millions will be plunged into poverty. now,
10:21 am
it's also that these nations are asking, why are we paying for greedy guzzlers far away? the top 10 percent of countries consume 20 times more energy than the bottom 10 percent, and $1100000000.00 sub saharan african share the same amount of power generation capacity. as germany, 83000000 people, video gamers and california consumed more electricity than entire nations. you won't hear anything about that. a cope 26. and remember when times were tough when to was coming, a gas was running low in europe. funny how no one was shouting about being a dirty source of energy when they begged for the tops to be turned back on. but you will hear them say they won't finance fossil fuel projects in developing countries. why? because it's far away and won't affect whether that warm on a chilly december night. though if the budget can stretch, they might lend a helping hand to ease the pay. we want to do more to help countries around the world, especially developing countries, accelerate their clean energy transition,
10:22 am
address pollution, and ensure the world we all must share. a cleaner, safer health is planet. we have an obligation to help make no mistake. this is not a judgment on green energy. the goals of those gathered in glasgow are undoubtedly noble. but do the politicians so desperate to be seen as the leaders who saved the planet, realize what that p off from the slogans actually mean for millions of people far away. and even if they did what they do, anything differently. there are some countries that actually have small populations but are consuming a lot of energy and everything. a lot of are capita carbon. there is people can see all around in most of the rich countries. it's not clear that they're really going to be themselves of it from coal, and i don't think that maybe realistic target will not much the 2015 that is accord target yet. so i think there's
10:23 am
a lot of bluffing going on here. and i don't believe a lot of the, you know, the commitments are the pledges being made by rich countries, kenya has reopened a criminal probe into the her refill the murder of a woman, allegedly, by a british soldier. the single mother was beaten, stumped and dumped in the septic tank back in 2012. her family believes the details of the case were hushed up. lead you there? hello, johnny. we recently learned that is the british army vault because there were a lot of cover alps. but we are glad that now think of being brought to light my wishes, the culprit to face the law because i had to bear burden that wasn't mine. i had my own children to take care of, though i was not employed. it has been a real struggle. the family of agnes when terror, when jacko. a canyon woman, allegedly killed by a british soldier, is crying foul as they are yet to receive justice. almost 10 years after her death,
10:24 am
when jack, who was a 21 year old sex walker, any money to feed her newborn baby when she was reported missing in march of 2012. 2 months later, her body was found in a hotel septic tank near to where british soldiers had been stationed, though it's been revealed that a british soldier named only a soldier acts confessed to killing her. what would i feel so sad as those positions to help us that took so long recently when the me death started air in the story top and old? once it's like agnes has just died. it has it been affected? her daughter, but we had to let her know what is going on. i pray that god crossed the british government the wisdom to handle this case. well, when i think of balconies, i remember how happy she was. she loved to sing it. she taught my youngest daughter how to sing. the person who killed agnes should face the law because the charge was orphaned has suffered a lot. bearing in mind, she was just 5 months old. even feeding at the time was difficult. according to the u. k. defense ministry, it will continue offering the support to the canyon investigation. the u. k. stands
10:25 am
ready to support all requests says we have done since day one. as with other investigations, we always work in partnership with the kenyan police and subject to international and judicial processes. our help will always be forthcoming will activists in kenya, a calling for the extradition of the alleged killer to be held accountable. while the labor party here in the united kingdom say, the 9 year old deal without an investigation even being considered, has denied the family justice. there's been no minister defense lead investigation of the sold is involved or no inquiring to why the minister, the phones failed to respond when canyon detectives asked for help. 9 years on justice must now be done for agnes and her family. revelations of the tragic death of when jacka continued to become more sinister, it's been reported that a group of 9 british soldiers joked about her death on social media several years later. the family now hope this fresh investigation will give them the answers they so desperately need her. i feel
10:26 am
a lot of pain when i remember agnes. we brought her up well and just as she was settling down her life was taken away, leaving us defense for her young child. it's my hope that this child will get justice. it's been 10 years, but we hope to finally get justice this case strikes right at the heart of alleged exploitation killings and cover ups in the british army. in fact, the very same defense secretary assisting this probe into an jacko's death officially closed at stores on investigations into more than a 1000 allegations of abuse by british soldiers in iraq. so with no prosecutions there, will this mean justice may never be served for anger. when jerry, when jack, who and her family chateau edward's dusty r t london. well, if you'd like a deeper dive into any of those stories on this the 1st sunday of november, do make sure to give our website some of your time today. i'll see you again. at the top, bye for russia,
