3:02 am
wharton is leaving the e.u. the only question is when or is it one british ship is claiming it isn't to life to call this whole breakfast thing off prime minister tourism however doesn't share about you i'm sarah harman in berlin welcome to the day. that julia assad is brussels is good as far as the treaty is concerned this country still has a free choice about whether to proceed. it will be that in black and white on the front page of this historic piece of legislation i think the british people have the right to know this they shouldn't be this that. the united kingdom will be
3:03 am
leaving the e.u. and not twenty nine twenty nineteen as eleven pm g.m.t. as new facts emerge people are entitled to take a different view that there's nothing in article fifty to stop them. let's no one doubts are determination or question our resolve bracks it is happening. also coming up on the day the u.s. city of pittsburgh was once a rust belt behemoths a metropolis that owed its very existence to steel for the days still are long gone and pittsburgh has found some innovative ways to transform itself into a hub of green technology we'll take a look coming up. how can we improve pittsburgh whether this is creating more drives more low income housing access to public transportation fossil fuel three vehicles electrifying our fleet access to more great plains i really how can we
3:04 am
improve the quality of life for everybody in pittsburgh. but first as braxton negotiations drag on in brussels the european union seems to be losing its patience with all the hemming and hawing now the e.u. is ramping up the pressure chief negotiator michel barnier has given london a two week also made him saying it must make clear how much it plans to pay before it leaves the bloc now barnett says that needs to happen before talks on trade can begin but britain's to go shooters well they seem a little less concerned about the glacial pace. to date news of progress and consensus from the projected wrecks of negotiations has been thin on the ground all the more surprising that the u.k.'s bricks and minister david davis came out with a distinctly positive view of the most recent negotiations there's no doubt that we have made and continue to make including this round significant progress across
3:05 am
a whole range of issues across the board that may prove progress towards resolving some really difficult questions and that of course will continue. between now and december in comparison comments made by davis counterpart e.u. breaks it negotiator michigan you seemed much more concerned by progress yet to be made compared the process to a matter of settling it counts as in any other separation and he offered a simple answer when pressed whether the e.u. is sticking to its two week deadline for clarification or concessions from london my bullshit week my answer is yes. many observers remain convinced that breaks it can't help but end in a nasty divorce there are still some who say the split doesn't have to happen at all a far as brussels is concerned as far as the treaty is concerned this country still has a free choice about whether to proceed as new facts emerge people are entitled to
3:06 am
take a different view and there's nothing in article fifty to stop them i think the british people have the right to know this they should invade this lady the ball is once again in london's court if whitehall doesn't dede want to negotiate breaks it then the message from brussels is pay up. a bit of news correspondent barbara vessel has been covering these talks for us from brussels barbara good to se you laura kara says access can still be stopped is that really an option. yes legally of course it is until the divorce is comes through we can always say let's try again or you could even say i still love you a bit we shall have another go at it and stay together however it's a political question and the government in london that particular tourism a has increasingly locked herself in her clinging to power into a mechanism that sort of reinforces bricks it if we look at total days where she has said the date is exactly twenty three hours on the twenty third of march in
3:07 am
two thousand and nineteen and that is supposed to be a law it shows that this is like a spiral that she can't really break any more she and her ministers her cabinet and the tory party are really locked into this process and for them to step away from the brink is hardly possible politically what about in the e.u. is there any feeling like maybe this doesn't have to happen or are we wait past at this point. for the e.u. basically they have accepted that this is going to happen because of the sea of course what is happening in london they see that the government is weakened that it's not really doesn't seem to be free in its decisions they also see of course that the mood in the in the united kingdom is largely sort of represented and created by a hostile press that still constantly briefs against the european union every day
3:08 am
you just look at the headlines and you wonder how they make this up and so that is an aspect that doesn't have to be underestimated on the on the side of politicians academics economists and so on of course there is increasing despair more and more people say let's not do this it's like sitting in the back of a car and is really racing up to the abyss however nobody is stopping the car so brussels is more or less resigned to the process and the progress of the disaster however people are now even diplomats here are saying it could be happy it could be happening what nobody used to say out loud before that we will end up with a hard break so it was a sort of car crash hard and barney has says that you need clarity in two weeks or what what happens in two weeks. in two rigs we have the summit and now we have the preparations for mid december we have to summit so in two weeks we need to know the conclusions will be written and so at the moment two conclusions are prepared one
3:09 am
decision that says we will not move the talks will be stalled because britain hasn't made a compromise over money and the other varieties ok britain has made the compromise has promised to pay up but what it's due and so we will continue was twenty talks in general those are the two the those are the two very of the righties they are now being prepared in detail and before the summit and the prime ministers and heads of state and government make up their mind what they want to do so yes time is running away time is running away and yet it feels like these talks have been going on forever i don't know about you barbara but have they made any progress is there anything concrete to show for these talks so far. this has been going on for five months now if it carries on at this pace we'll both be sitting here in two thousand and fifty and sort of going round and round in circles it's been really really fruitless i mean there has been have been tiny tiny little steps
3:10 am
this little bit of progress on citizens' rights for instance but all those things have sort of fall on big down on island i mean there seem to be agreement there cannot be a hard border an island that britain simply ignores the necessity of a border in ireland after breaks it and says oh it's supposed to be nonexistent it's supposed to be invisible yes but how and it hasn't offered any sort of concrete plan or project how this could come about is so we going back and forth and sideways and progress is really absolutely minimal it's a very frustrating process and diplomats in brussels say maybe we have to rethink the whole thing and aim for something else that means a deal that is known deal that deal it's like a minimum the minimum agreement and what how we could create a future together but not the sort of really extensive negotiations that we've had
3:11 am
before but that is still in the future it's still everything is still in play and you and i'll be speaking much more in the future for now that's barbara vale in brussels thanks for the latest. people in the town of grimsby one of britain's seafood processing centers voted overwhelmingly in favor of leaving the e.u. but now the town is calculated the cost and is lobbying for its port facilities to be exempt from bracks it has drawn a lot of reaction online take a look at this journalist chris robinson who's originally from grimsby tweeted so the story about grimsby fishermen wanting to have an exemption to bricks it is really interesting it's the first proper hearing of a place who voted against their interest admitting they may have made a mistake another u.k. resident tweeted this no no no grimsby and the fishing industry both want to direct that you made your bed lie in it or repent. and british novelist jonathan code joked grimsby wants to have its fish cake and eat it too. but also working
3:12 am
aside to really understand what's happening in grimsby you have to understand how highly regulated the entire fishing industry is inside the e.u. brussels strict rules for commercial fishing across all the member states to prevent overfishing it says annual catch limits quotas that determine how many fish can be caught in each place each country isn't allocated its fair share the fisheries policy also sets controls on fishing practices like what kind of nets you're allowed to use while you're fishing and it also regulates how fish and seafood in general are processed and labelled to make sure that consumers can trust what they're eating of these rules were devised to protect fishing stocks and fisherman but rex it poses a whole new set of challenges for port cities in britain but also for european fisherman. rex it's a huge impact because we will lose at least fifty percent of our fleet and that's
3:13 am
a disaster a real disaster thanks. for drinks it came as a surprise to us and not a good surprise. i'm worried it is like a monster emerging a monster. my name is. i'm a dunce fisherman from the island and my name is representing the dutch fishing industry. they call sent by fish and british waters eighty percent of the year and if i am not allowed to fish there anymore i have to go somewhere else but other colleagues are already fishing in dutch waters so if i go there we have to share it would be like fishing on a stamp. so this would have a domino effect a very bad domino effect for instance here this auction industry sure that if one or two or three vessels will have to stop then that is no place this is enormously
3:14 am
for the auction everything everything tumbles around. in the north sea since nine hundred fifty seven and that's a very very good sign and that is because of the joint policy of the e.u. member states but the collective management is gone what used to be our colleagues our friends working together in european fisheries politics and all of a sudden it's turned upside down as if we are strangers and that is a very very bad feeling our friends are no longer our friends. are sufficient. to you without igniting. as a boy i went fishing with my father in british waters he told me where to go catch the best fish. machine one of you to. be played and played and yeah
3:15 am
both of. these are my waters and i know them like the back of my head. that you could not going to move. the reality off the backs it is the reality before taxes and you have to come to an agreement together so the brits export the fish the tax and they import the fish they eat and if they want to sell scottish farms. language etc to do confident then they should be reasonable and it's a tad and it's a fair deal that we can keep preaching in their waters as we have done for five hundred years. the united nations and the us have both told saudi arabia not to use lebanon as an arena for proxy conflicts
3:16 am
now the warning comes after a week of rising tensions a trance saudi arabia and iran riyadh earlier accused levanon objects are in war because the iranian backed militant group hezbollah is part of the government there and amid the escalation in saudi arabia and its allies have now told their nationals to leave lebanon now. kuwaiti citizens heading out of lebanon their government is one of several gulf states that has ordered its people to leave the country this comes amid sharpening tensions in the region lebanon is being drawn deeper into a power struggle between arch rivals saudi arabia and iran. lebanese prime minister saad hariri is inside the arabia since he was signed last weekend accusations have been flying that the kingdom is holding him hostage for. iran backed militant group hezbollah says that amounts to a declaration of war the group is accusing saudi arabia of using lebanon as
3:17 am
a proxy in its conflict with rival iran. that you know if your problem is with iran why you are attacking lebanon just to prove you have influence we admit that you have influence but if you think that you can defeat the lebanese resistance or its political parties who refuse to comply with you you're mistaken. lebanon's president met with the saudi envoy on friday local media reportage that the president demanded harry's return riyadh says hariri is free to move as he wishes a claim that front supported on friday but there is no doubts that the complaint is escalating the united nations has sounded the alarm this is a matter of great concern to us and what we want is for peace to be preserved in lebanon. it is essential that no new conflict erupts in the region is going to have devastating consequences for this saudi iran rivalry is also playing
3:18 am
out in war ravaged yemen a missile was launched from that against saudi arabia last week the united states is now i said that the missile was a rainy and. in the proxy war yemen is suffering badly now there are fears lebanon. could become the next battle cry. about tobias a scholar who studies the regime and is the head of the center for applied research and partnership with the orient he joins us now from darmstadt not a welcome when you look at the situation in lebanon do you see a war in the making not really i really see an escalation in the political climate but actually to be to be to be honest i don't expect a major war i think the security apparatus in most important countries in the region and particularly in israel know very well that this war would have an
3:19 am
unbelievable consequences that should be avoided so there might be some minor incidents here and there but i don't expect an all out war so this is all ever yet again on this is very crisis you mention the security apparatus in israel for those of us who aren't perhaps steeped in middle eastern politics walk us through what israel has to do with this conflict between saudi arabia and iran well obviously it is hizbullah is a force that has defended against israeli invasion that is threatening israel however also in the middle east the iranians use has a lot as a defense line against any form of israeli influence in the region that the iranians do not like therefore any a school ation in the southern border or in the border between that israel wouldn't be in israel's interest and this is why i believe that the israelis won't this is a really see to see this escalating ahead of the u.s. france germany they're all urging the escalation is saudi arabia going it alone
3:20 am
here who are their allies. as i said i think politically political messaging can be a skill torrie while you actually don't do really anything so i think if we compare donald trump's tweets and reactions to this and the state department's statements today you can see a big difference in how people who just care about political messaging seem to like this when they were alive with crown prince behind the fence on the side to review of those who actually do diplomacy those who actually do security politics me a call for caution and so i assume this is what we're all states should do in order for to not see this further escalate when we talk about the situation in lebanon specifically and saad hariri is that a matter of he can't go back to lebanon or he won't well that's a big that's a big question here a lot of people are saying he's basically held under house arrest well they're
3:21 am
saying he's free to move but should not go back to lebanon i have to be honest here i simply cannot assess what's more accurate i think france has today said they don't believe he is under under house arrest and free to move but again there are so many conflicting reports that i'm humble enough to say that i am his god damn it what you don't know what would it take adnan to relax the situation right now best case scenario best case scenario would simply be make sure that this doesn't translate into any form of military action call for constraints call for air each side to keep cool and to keep cool headed and make sure that the sovereignty of a country like lebanon has respect that's adnan tab a time i thank you for being with us why did happy. well the united states has long been one of the world's biggest emitters of greenhouse gases but a u.s. city once known for its skies is showing it is possible to cut pollution the rust
3:22 am
belt so they have pittsburgh pennsylvania is undergoing a transformation as a correspondent carson phenomena reports. this is the old image of pittsburgh a city of steel and coal where the chimney stacks never stop bad shit smoke and west read lights had to be left alone twenty four hours a day because the smog blocked out the sun but today's reality is a different one the city has cleaned up its act and instead of heavy industry banks and high tech companies and are providing jobs for a growing population more than thirteen thousand pittsburghers are employed in the clean energy sector alone in companies such as ever power which operates wind farms in pennsylvania new york and is developing projects in other states too for co-founder and recall of best ski pittsburgh is the perfect place for innovative businesses i think it's the people you know it's great town pool here young people
3:23 am
from some of the best universities in the country. also from the cultural standpoint you know there's a lot to offer we have three professional teams we have to l.a. we have to symphony we have the opera so many things that can draw great talent. pittsburgh's transformation as the result of a concerted effort by the city government to attract startups and other businesses while at the same time keeping an eye on environmental and social issues one of the people working on pittsburgh's turnaround is development analyst sarah yeager. to take a holistic approach as how can we improve pittsburgh why this is creating more jobs more low income housing access to public transportation fossil fuel free vehicles. electrifying our fleet access to more bike lanes i really how can we improve the quality of life for everybody and pittsburgh. another key factor in the city's formula for success is pittsburgh's colleges like carnegie mellon university many
