11:03 am
the president believes he can do anything and get away with it but a president who believes he's above the law pursuing the leader of another nation to investigate a political poll cope with his election is not the conduct of an american 1st. chunk knew the inquiry announcement was coming and he was an impressed. look it's just a continuation of the we're just it's the worst we're joking political history you have the strongest economy we've gotta have you the best unemployment numbers in the. trunk has faced down multiple scandals since taking office with the republicans controlling the senate even if he is impeached whether he is removed from the white house is another matter entirely. now a new united nations report on climate change has issued the starkest warning yet
11:04 am
of the climate change tests are free for the planet's oceans spelling some out some intense images including storms extreme weather and rising sea levels scientists from the intergovernmental panel on climate change say that well oceans have been helping the planet cope with rising temperatures unprecedented overheating in this sea poses a huge threat to humanity includes a warning that the melting antarctic ice sheet will of felt it will affect rising sea levels more than previously thought was some island nations likely to become uninhabitable. well joining us for some analysis is john from did environment department today too high can you tell us this this report has some very dire warnings just just how bad is the situation scientists are telling us that it is in fact very very bad. seeds that are getting hotter and
11:05 am
which are rising and this happening faster and faster in some cases faster than we previously thought and one of the things that make it very clear that i mean it's not just the oceans that are affected but also the poles the high mountainous regions and which we're seeing hotter temperatures leading to melting snow melting ice and what this is during of releasing huge amounts of water fresh water that's 1st overwhelming people's too much water and then often potentially leading to a lock even drought since a massive movement of water across the world ok just this massive movement of waters especially thanking people of course in low lying areas and areas that we know that are already had at risk island nations for example. who's going to be most at risk from this is it the people in those areas like the one we're looking at here unfortunate is the people who are frankly least responsible for. change you will be mostly affected by it so if we see what we're talking about with in time
11:06 am
the strongest storms we've had scientists tell us in this report that the sort of storms that used to strike maybe once a sentry can now be expected to some small island nations some coastal megacities as often as once a year and this happening within our lifetimes or by 2050 the same but even if we manage to drastically cut carbon emissions we're still going to see this level of destruction add to that things like the. losing fish populations as asians get more acidic and woman and i think we're seeing some pretty serious consequences ok for those metro areas as well not just these these vulnerable low lying island nations is there anything we can do right now i mean global warming is a massive and complex topic of course and there's a lot that goes into it but but what can be done to to reverse course where this is the message of hope within the report is that essentially we can do 2 things at the same time and not to mitigate climate change and that means having a few

a greenhouse gas emissions urgently an ambitious the cutting down on the amount of fossil fuels we're burning and at the same time adapting to climate change because what the what specifically what's special about oceans sorry is that they react very slowly to changes in the climate so even if we were to completely stop all the emissions tomorrow we'd still see historic emissions continuing to warm the oceans so what scientists are calling for is ready to adapt to this changing world and at the same time reducing our missions for the future generations. how prepared are we to do that. tricky to say in the report they have quite strong statements talking about the sort of transformative unprecedented changes that need to be made in all aspects of society from the economy to the institutions but i think it's less thing that i mean in the interview some of the some of the needles the told me things like. we're not on track for the sort of food doomsdays an art is more of go does
