10:10 pm
pakistan is also said plans to take up the kashmir issue with the un security council which does see as a disputed region pakistan has tried in the past to to him to internationalize the bush meat issue its called for a plebiscite but the question here really is you know i'm listening to saying how much latitude how much leeway pakistan really has when it comes to given that it has been you know repeatedly accused off providing covert support to militant groups of fueling the insurgency in a did indian administered kashmir. and so what are you hearing about all of these reports of politicians being arrested. that's right i mean these reports suggest that it's really not just politicians of course these politicians also include mainstream media politicians former chief ministers of the state and of jammu and kashmir. these are very prominent politicians we really haven't heard from them since they've been detained but we're also hearing off arrests off activists of professors or even business leaders so i

10:16 pm
temperature has risen by almost one degree celsius one degrees not a watch you may think but it has helped create deserts it's degraded land and it is endangered our food security of the world's land area that is not covered by ice roughly 70 percent it's already used to produce food textiles and fuel and housing that is likely to increase as the world's population increases so the i.p.c.c. is the latest report is also a call for action with a clear message if things do not change quickly it will become increasingly difficult to ensure that the world has enough to eat. this german field is bone dry drought has again gripped parts of the country these crops will yield much less wheat than usual and a new report by the intergovernmental panel on climate change warns that dry
10:17 pm
periods like this will become more frequent and more intense. the mediterranean region and southern africa will be especially hard hit climate change is already here one result the quality of soil is deteriorating in many places deserts are advancing elsewhere rich topsoil is being eroded but more and more food has to be produced to feed the world's growing population this is a vicious cycle on the one hand farming produces the food that people desperately need but on the other hand it's a huge factor in climate change overall farming generates more than 20 percent of greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide cattle and rice production make up half of methane emissions a climate pollutant worse than c o 2 and human made fertilizers create 3 quarters of nitric oxide emissions it's a particularly potent greenhouse gas scientists are worried about how quickly the
10:18 pm
farming sector is growing an area 2 thirds the size of australia has been turned into agricultural land in the last few decades the i.p.c.c. says it's time to change otherwise deserts will continue to advance and hundreds of millions more could go hungry. he is a leading climate scientist and co-author of this latest i.p.c.c. report from there it's good to have you on the show let me just ask you the findings the conclusions in this report do they represent the vast consensus among scientists when it comes to. climate change. good evening from geneva this is a question. at the i.p.c.c. and this report has been prepared by more than 100 expert scientists from 52 countries is said i should also emphasize that the report is assessed 7000
10:19 pm
publications from the scientific literature and this kid is brought to the table here is the assessment of the scientific knowledge in those publications to us to validate the level of confidence with which we can make these statements and and also to identify the open questions and. research that should be done to fill those gaps so we clearly identify those statements that we can make with high confidence and many of those and most of those make it into the summary for policymakers which has been published today so it's all of the fine yes if i could if i could interrupt there i want to just ask you about what the report calls for in terms of our diet is that the world. maybe should eat less meat but we
10:20 pm
know that particularly in china and brazil with those countries becoming wealthier people are eating more meat so is it reasonable for us to ask those populations to reduce their meat consumption just when they are beginning to increase it. well this is i think the wrong angle to the public or core problem is we have climate change that we have cause of. tree causing 23 percent or 3 worlds emissions and part of this must be to go into sustainability in this sector where use the land demanded in demand for cattle growing and associated creek growing which is 77 percent off the land surface and that used by. enjoyed using meat consumption would be an essential step so going going for high quality meat that is produce
10:21 pm
a stain of billy and going for meat that is produced in your region rather than being added in from abroad must not a. feat that comes from other continents and needs to be transported like your imports of soil from brazil for example all of these measures would help to reduce emissions from this sector does this report. come to the conclusion that we would be better off everyone if everyone were to become a vegetarian or a vegan would that help solve a lot of our. global warming emissions problems. this is do nice at least still oppose no decision whether you want to to do that but overall there must be a trend toward towards less nice meat consumption and it comes to get there with the benefit of healthier food if you go for more plant based food
10:22 pm
containing grain containing nuts and vegetables and less meat than before and the meat should be of higher quality than from animal production and invest respect there are good reasons to move that way with without considering climate change and their cool benefits for goes for both sides policy makers need it's own board and develop their respective policies to make this happen climate scientist harms also portman joining us tonight from geneva mr further we appreciate your time and your insights thank you thank you very much for the questions over millions of city dwellers around the world the best they can do for a bit of outdoor space is to have a balcony or a roof terrace here in berlin there is a long tradition of green spaces in the midst of the urban jungle city authorities rents the popular allotments to residents but those same authorities are now
10:23 pm

10:24 pm
if you want one of these garden lots you will have to be very patient waiting lists are long and it can take several years to get a lot of the garden colonies have become increasingly popular among germans and it's easy to see why when you look behind me most colonies are right in the middle of the city with a kluge plot as part of an allotment colony that is surrounded by apartment buildings you know the land is sought after the city wants to build a school here and the garden is designated to be torn up to make room so will their blackberry hatch be dug up by a bulldozer the clute are very upset. and the limbs what would be losing here is the quality of life. i don't know what we will do then the moment was we can only. do a few other allotment called a nice also slated for destruction land is limited in the growing german capital
10:25 pm
which is why the city sees no other option than to sacrifice some of the green spaces. if. we don't want to make life difficult for allotment god but will need to repurpose some of them in the coming years because berlin is a growing city that needs space for schools daycare centers and sports grounds and a few allotment gardens about one percent did have to make way for those plans in the years ahead by. the kluges intent to fight. they have joined forces with their neighbors in the colony. they agree that schools are important but feel they should not necessarily be built here. garden colony has already been squeezed to make way for apartment buildings once before now it could completely disappear at the end of a 102 year old green oasis. are. european
