"Your role as chair of the senate select committee on intelligence. We've been following the concerning reports of various government employees being afflicted by unexplained attacks. What's become known as van syndrome. This week's news comes from india where us intelligence officer was traveling with the head of the cia william burns. That officer is reported symptoms consistent with a van syndrome. How is the senate intelligence committee dealing with this mystery. This is a phenomenon that the government has been very late to the game in acknowledging and treating people who've been hurt frankly under the trump administration for the first two or three years. There was an effort to sweep this under the rug. And i find it. Outrageous people were being denied The medical treatment they needed. We're talking about numbers and now in the hundreds it's not just people in the intelligence community. It's people out of the state department out of dod and the idea if somehow you can become a victim of something that is creating enormous headaches attentively permanent brain damage and you don't know what's causing it. We still don't have a fulsome answer on what nation state are launching these attacks. We don't have a full answer on how they're launching. And i can tell you we. Now have the resources trying to investigate. Who's doing it and how it's happening. And i think we'll have some of those answers very shortly. Because our spies are our diplomats. Our soldiers deserve to get the protection. They need when they sort of our country abroad. Like we can follow up with you when we have those answers. Thank you very much. We're feeling that question senator. Mark warner working on an international tax plan to be part of the democrats mega spending bill. Senator thank you very much for being with us today. Barco thanks for having me. I want my home to be a personal cocoon of happiness. But it doesn't have to be architectural digest perfect. We all know someone who must have everything in their house be just so the lamps the drapes. The carpets a sound turns out less than perfect is actually better for our love. Lives are at least for some mammals. Biologists from china and michigan teamed up to study giant pandas in nature reserve in china. They found that the bears need enough suitable habitat to thrive but not too much something close to eighty percent. Suitable habitat is optimal. If pens are to content they may not move around to explore like if the forest is really cushy with their favorite chow bamboo everywhere. What's the motivation to get out and meet other pandas. But when animals have to sit out for greener pastures literally. They do meet new mates which is obviously key for creating genetic diversity and sustainability of the species. The findings were published in this month's conservation. Biology scientists say the study likely has impacts for other species to the lesson. Good enough maybe the new perfect good news for animals and for land conservation managers everywhere. You lovers might wanna take note as well. You're listening to the world. I'm marco werman with the world leaders from around the globe of convened in new york for the un general assembly for the second year in a row the gathering china made some big pledges to fight climate change. Here's chinese president. Xi jinping speaking through an interpreter china will step up support for other developing countries in developing green and low carbon energy. Bill new coal-fired power projects abroad. No new chinese back. Coal plants outside of china. The world's environment correspondent carolyn. Bieler joins me now to discuss this so caroline. Us climate envoys. John carey said that he's absolutely delighted by this move which he's been talking about with chinese officials apparently for some time. The un secretary general antonio guitarist has also been pushing for this. What is the significance. It's a big announcement marco. China is the biggest remaining public funder of coal fire power plants. It's building coal-fired. Power plants abroad through its belt and road. Initiative concentrated largely in vietnam bangladesh indonesia. This announcement was really just those several words that you just heard so. It's not clear exactly what it means when it will take effect whether it will apply just to brand new power plants or those that are already planned but not yet built alvin. Lynn is an expert on china climate policy at the natural resources defense council and he told me that if it applies to power plants that are planned but not yet built nearly fifty power plants are going to be cancelled if you look at a huge sector aviation. This is equivalent of grounding a quarter of flights in terms of their emissions. And so this is a really important announcement both for the signal that it sends. And also i think you know what it means in terms of those Tons of co two. What kind of signal does this announcement said. That china is continuing to take significant steps forward on climate change even though it needs to be doing or just like most of the rest of the world and it gives a boost to expectations ahead of the un climate summit in glasgow. Does it change things for glasgow. There is starting to be some chatter that the un climate summit in glasgow might not be a success so climate policy experts were looking to the un general assembly for some concrete announcements that would signal that country's really were willing to come to the table with some big new promises next month so out of the un general assembly climate policy experts were looking for any announcements on coal from china which we've obviously seen and announcements from developed countries including the us on climate. Finance we also saw an announcement yesterday from president. Joe biden that the us would double its climate finance for developing countries by twenty twenty four. So taken together. Those are both seen by those reading. The tea leaves that there might be some real solid commitments made in about a month time at the climate summit in glasgow so the announcement from china to pledge to not support coal projects outside of china but president. She did not mention domestic consumption. did he he did. Not and none of the much larger source of both emissions and pollution for those who live near these plants than power. Plants financed abroad China accounts for about half of all of the coal fire. Power plants around the world. They're still building more of them. Even though last year at the un general assembly china said it would hit peak emissions. By the end of this decade. I spoke to fa lee. Who's an assistant professor of environmental studies at new york university shanghai today and he made this point that this is a reminder that a chinese authorities are also up against vested interests just like the rest of the world no reason to think that an authoritarian state like china can simply change the reality on the ground with the snap of a finger it simply is never the case still we are expecting to see maybe some more details about domestic call use in china as the glasgow summit approaches and of course at some point more details on what this announcement that came out this week. We'll actually mean and win. It will go into effect. The world's environment correspondent carolyn dealer. Thanks very much welcome marco. Los angeles is notorious for its traffic jams but now the most concerning one is in the ocean the ports of los angeles and long beach are jammed up with ships trying to get in dozens of them waiting offshore to unload their goods record numbers. In fact it's a similar story playing out. Imports across the nation. Largent follows this sort of thing. He's a ceo of spooky maritime and joins us from copenhagen. What's behind this massive buildup of ships at us ports in a single word. Kobe in a few more words colby leading to the average american consumer beginning to buy a lot more physical goods rather than services. This is one of the key reasons why we now seeing this.
