goal to prevent the global temperature from climbing more than one and a half degrees celcius also coming up u.s. president donald trump tells north korea it's aggressive behavior is a threat to the civilized world but he says he's open to talks with the north korean leader kim jong un. i'm bored gough it's good to have you with us we begin with the weather and the climate and what to do to make them both if not better at least not worse the un's latest climate summit has begun in the german city of bawn representatives from one hundred ninety seven countries will spend the next ten days discussing ways to tackle climate change of the conference opened with a. the additional fijian welcome ceremony so the talks are being held here in
8:02 pm
germany fiji is in the chair as one of the countries are suffering climate changes worst effect its prime minister warned that failure was not an option a delegate are working to care expected global temperature increases at one point five degrees celsius or less. instead of taking their seats in class they're taking to the streets these youths staged a demonstration near the climate conference center and bone. they want the global community to limit greenhouse gas emissions. conference participants say the paris climate agreement of twenty fifteen was a step in the right direction countries have national climate targets now but they have to be solidified. this is an urgent moment and so i expect delegations to come here ready to do their jobs to get the rules set for paris and make progress but
8:03 pm
also individually to say what they're ready to do more. there's a south pacific and billions in von island nations threatened with submersion amid rising sea levels are getting special attention at the climate conference the targets set out in the paris agreement don't go far enough to prevent the impact of a climate disaster. in paris it was clear that our efforts would not go far enough it's also part of this agreement that we keep second to see what we can do better. it's doubtful whether that will happen in bonn meeting the paris climate targets will require much more work but everyone here is aware that the pacific islands are quickly running out of time. all right we want to pull in louise born she is our environmental issues editor she joins us tonight from the german city of bonn always good evening to you so people watching us tonight are going to think ok
8:04 pm
you had the paris climate agreement two years ago so why do you need this conference in bonn now well i mean the paris agreement indeed was very important and it really brought together at the end national community for the first time but now it's really if i had hammering out the nuts and bolts of how exactly they're going to implement climate action plans that they're all putting in place at the moment i mean if you think that the the paris agreement was like a smart phone and the rule book that they are now working on to make sure that they implement all of these issues is going to be the operating system a smartphone come without an operating system and so that's what they say conference is really about it's making sure that they can make the parse agreement what ok that's a great analogy and problem you know with a couple of updates to keep it running smoothly is well it seems if we look at the latest data that we are on track to see
8:05 pm
a three degree temperature rise that's based on the latest models for the entire planet is that adding urgency to these talks. that's right i mean if they stick with the climate action plans that the countries have already put in place that will be a three degree rise and that's what's been projected and it is really adding a giant sea to the talks because they realize that they have to have more ambition they really have to make sure that they can keep elite below that two degree limit one point five degrees if they possibly can with fiji as the the president for the conference obviously they are feeling some of the impacts more than anyone else and so with them taking charge it's really about trying to make sure that they can they can keep those targets in place you know i mean even if the world manages to limit war warming to one point five degrees or two degrees celsius i mean how much risk will there remain for these pacific islands like fiji. well like i said fiji is
8:06 pm
