"Nuclear weapons is utterly unacceptable. It is high time to step back from the brink. Antonio Gutierrez is the secretary general of the United Nations. Those are his comments saying no nukes and clearly I think president Putin is in the business of saying yes, nukes and that we have this back and forth and like I said before I never know how much bluffing is bluffing, but our guests patty Jane gellar is an expert on this. She's a senior policy analyst at the heritage foundation and patty Jane gellar. I want to really kind of just break this apart for listeners who are just tuning in right now. About Russia and how they're continuing to ignore obligations under new start. This disagreement where they're not going to do or use nuclear weapons, explain a little bit more on that, please. Sure. So new start is the only arms control treaty between Russia and the U.S. that limits the number of nuclear weapons that each side can deploy. So in particular, both the U.S. and Russia can deploy no more than about 1500 strategic nuclear weapons, meaning those sorts of long-range missiles that can reach each other's homelands. And part of the treaty is inspections. So Russian and Chinese and Russian and U.S. inspectors can go look at the other's missiles. Sorry, last year there. So Russian and Chinese inspectors can go look at the other missiles and exchange information about their nuclear forces. And so what's happening now is Russia decided that they're going to suspend their participation in that treaty. We don't know if that means they're going to surpass that limit of 1500 nuclear warheads. But it sounds like they want to abide by those treaty inspections or data exchanges any longer. Now, isn't this similar or tell me how it's different from the INF treaty? Yeah, well, similar in that, it's another instance of Russia violating every arm control treaty, but I'll tell you the INF treaty, that was a great treaty in that it banned an entire class of weapons. So the U.S. and Russia were not allowed to deploy intermediate range ground launch nuclear missiles. So think of the nuclear missiles that the U.S. deployed in Europe back in the Cold War or the Russian missiles that they deployed in Cuba during the Cuban missile crisis. All of those were banned. I know it was great. But then since around 2014, Russia started building some of those missiles that were banned, which eventually prompted the Trump administration to rightfully withdraw from that treaty. Right. And I remember that. And for that reason, it's why I asked. Because it seems that there's a pattern here of saying, hey, look, we have this treaty and we have that treaty and Putin kind of proverbially raising his folkloric middle finger at us. I'm just saying no thank you. I don't want to play. And I just think, you know, how do you how would you recommend? I know how I would recommend, but how would you recommend dealing with someone like this? Yes, Putin has certainly demonstrated that he has no interest in arms control. In this dates back before Putin really all I know about this Soviet Union is their violation of international agreements. And I think we have to we can't we quite frankly can not continue to rely on arms control for U.S. national security. You know, you hear officials even from this administration who say, you know, arms control will save us. It'll be what we need to prevent a nuclear war, but not with a partner like Vladimir Putin. The U.S. I believe needs to react by focusing on building up its own forces, its own nuclear deterrent. Since that's what will ultimately need to protect us, not arms control. What kind of nuclear deterrent are you talking about? Sure. So the U.S. has its slew of nuclear forces. We have a triad of land air and sea based different kinds of missiles. Something I've been writing a lot about is that our nuclear forces are really outdated. They're all built and designed during the Cold War. And we also, the number of nuclear weapons we have, we picked that before we knew that China was expanding its arsenal as well. So as a threat grow up, we need to strengthen our deterrent by doing more. We're quite frankly going to need more nuclear weapons to deter Russia and China from ever thinking that they can get away with using their own. Right. And it seems like clearly several presidents have understood this, right? The last president president Trump put a ton of money into military spending to make sure the military was strong and ready. Despite having to use it and not going into any new wars and president Reagan, his whole monitor of peace through strength, I think lends itself well to the current situation do you think that the current administration, the Biden administration, would ever take a page from the Reagan administration and say, yeah, you know what? We're going to do exactly what patty Jane Geller is talking about and we're going to beef up our outdated system that was put into place by Reagan and and see what happens. Yes, I hope so. So far, this administration hasn't been taking the threat enough seriously. The last couple of budget requests for defense didn't even keep up with inflation. So it's basically a cut and the U.S. Military capabilities. We've seen a willingness to spend enough money on nuclear forces, but it's not going to be enough. And I'm really hopeful that the threats are growing. Things are getting really serious. We talked about Russian Chinese cooperation or future alliance. I would hope that that would trigger into any American president into seeing that we can't fool ourselves by thinking things like arms control and diplomacy will save the day. We have to build up our military forces. Yeah, and what do you think in particular with is it all nuclear? Or other technologies that you've got your eye on? Yes, sadly, it's probably a bit of everything. Nuclear, we are going to need more nuclear weapons and different kinds of missiles to deal with the growing threats. And a lot of our conventional forces are actually the heritage foundation publishes the index of U.S. Military strength each year where we rate the military services and how if they're big enough and capable enough and ready enough up against the threat and for the first time in 9 years we rated the military as weak. So that means we need a bigger navy. We need a more ready air force, I wish I could tell you it's the top technologies we need, but we need to do better on even the basic military equipment. That will need to face on both Russia and China at the same time. Yeah, I mean, I agree with you. I feel that we hear a lot about everybody using hypersonic weapons, I hear a lot about submarines that are out there. And I'm thinking, are we prepared for that kind of fight? Should we encounter one? And we had a retired lieutenant colonel Dakota wood from the heritage foundation on the program and he explained a lot of what you were just citing. And it seemed to me that we were not adequately prepared. And I think that's a concern. Yeah, I absolutely agree with you. We are doing things. We're building our own hypersonic weapons where working on a defense program against hypersonic weapons as an example, but we're behind those things are moving too slowly. Fund administration tries to cut funding from some of those programs last year and then you have just as one example air force pilots who are getting much less practice than they did during the Cold War, even though the threat

"For that update Doug krisna really appreciate it. Well, it's difficult to believe, but it's been almost 21 years since the 9 11 attacks. The New York Stock Exchange earlier taking a moment of silence this morning to commemorate the anniversary. And we're thinking a lot about it as we approach the 21st anniversary on Sunday, very pleased this afternoon to be joined by Joe Pfeiffer to retired FDNY bat chief. He's also author of the book ordinary heroes, a memoir of 9 11. Joe joins us this afternoon on the phone from the UN. Joe, good to have you with us this afternoon. How are you? Good. It's good to be with you. So you were the first FDNY chief to respond to the 9 11 attacks. And your new book is a memoir, and also a tribute to those who died and also those who didn't and survived the attacks. What made you want to write this book now? I wanted to have some time of reflection 20 years. And it tells people the story of what it was like that day. For me, for my firefighters. And for the people that were in a greatest moment in need. And I took the title ordinary heroes. For a particular reason. Because we think of firefighters as superheroes, but we don't consider ourselves that at all. What I saw that day was my firefight is going up to evacuate the building. And to rescue those that were trapped. And they went up doing some ordinary things. By telling people, we're coming down the same stairs. Don't stop. Keep going. You could make it out of here. And we know from people who survive that those simple words made a difference. You know, Joe, it's just such catastrophic heartbreaking losses for the fire department that day. Correct me if I'm wrong, I think it was more than 340 firemen lost their lives that day. I can't imagine what it would be like to sit down and write this book. You lost friends, colleagues, people you mentored. I'm sure, was it a cathartic experience? Did it help you in sort of wrap your head around what happened and your mental state or was it really painful to do? Well, it took a long time. And there was some moments of pain. But it was also looking back and finding a sense of hope. So in the darkness of the dust cloud, which we all remember covered Lower Manhattan when the buildings collapsed. People also saw on TV, the firefighters helmet. Helmets is a little fleshlight. So a little Beacon of light in the darkness. And I think writing the book. Allowed me to look at those moments of hope in the darkest times for us. You know, one thing that I've been thinking about, Joe, over the last few years, when we do get to this anniversary, as I've been reflecting, is that each year, more and more people exist who didn't experience it. Whether or not they were in California in high school, like was my own situation. Or they were in New Jersey and perhaps had friends, parents, parish, like some of my friends. And I'm wondering how you think about that. The idea that, you know, I met an intern here at Bloomberg this summer who was in his early 20s. And was born after, you know, 9 11. And how do you think about something like that? Because it was a shared experience for so many people, but that shared experience is kind of getting smaller. The experience is getting smaller, but what I noticed with writing the book and I was really surprised was the amount of emails I got from young people. The 20 year age group. And they said, you know, I wasn't born or I was too young at the time. But I started and that I read your book. And I just wanted to tell you that what was done that day helped me go into public service. It inspired me by looking at the documentaries like 9 11, Jules one day. That film me. And then to read the book, put it all in perspective for them. So they weren't old enough or born, but living experience in real time now through books and through documentaries. And it's just as personal for them as it was for us 21 years ago. Joe obviously here at Bloomberg, we're sort of laser focused on financial markets and it markets whenever there's sort of this unexpected event that really changes everything. They call it a black swan event. And I can't help them thinking of 9 11 being a black swan event for the whole business and process of fighting fires, you know, something no one in their worst nightmare really expected and then all of a sudden you're confronted with it in real time right in front of you and you have to make split second decisions on what to do about it. I wonder what the lessons learned are for the profession of firefighting. Has it changed a lot about how you train and how you think about responding to stuff like this? Is there a new paradigm of firefighting that's come out as a result of this? Firefighting has changed. We look at the threat environment. We're connected to the intelligence community. And see what's happening not only in the United States, but also threats around the world. We also work very closely with our law enforcement partners. The longer do we see this separation between higher employees and particularly in New York, we train together. And we. Have the police officers running to for an active shooter, for example. We'll run into and engage the shooter. But at the same time, we'll bring in our medical folks of fire and EMS medical folks to take care of patients. So we have to depend on each other and the police also depends on our aromatics to come in in danger to rescue their offices, take care of the medical lead. So a lot of changes, a lot of changes. Joe, you've done so much in the last 20 years. You retired from the FDNY. You wrote this book that you published last year ordinary heroes and memoir of 9 11. Your director for crisis leadership at Columbia University or a senior fellow at the Harvard Kennedy school in the combating terrorism center at West Point. You also this week participated in the United Nations global Congress of victims on terrorism with UN secretary general Antonio Gutierrez. What was that like? I'm actually at the UN now and with victims of terrorism throughout the world. And I hear this stories of losing loved ones that young children, their parents, their friends, and it becomes very real. But the one thing where we realize here at the UN is that the we don't ignore the pain of being a victim of terrorism. Instead, what we do is we give it purpose. To change, to change the world, to make a difference. Because without a purpose, there is no hope. And without hope, there is no actions. So we're looking at here at the UN, we're looking to collectively have our voices heard to combat terrorism. And also to support the victims of terrorism throughout the world. One of the most heartbreaking

And these is a recipe for trouble. We face a moment of truth now is the time to deliver now is the time to restore trusts and now is the time to inspire hope and i do have hope. I thought it was pretty good. He he said some really good things there. I heard that. And i didn't clip it but listening to it now In a different context it was good. He's he's he's pointing out some really obvious things which i thought was. Is you know i. I thought that was quite interesting now. dirkson space all the things we point out but meanwhile it's like okay. That was great. Great speech now. Let's talk about climate change. Let's talk about scaring everyone to think they're all gonna die young people code red code red. We're all going to die. And then the big controversy debate mainstream media controversy dead president. Joe biden fall asleep while boris johnson was talking and did they interrupt the The the press conference between the leader of the united kingdom and the leader of the united states because the president was falling asleep. Did he do in his pants. Could they smell. It was early warning what happened. This was addressed wrong in trying to hear from the president and the prime minister which aspects well the british prime minister american oval office called on british reporters and when american reporters tried to call the american president was forty. Go well i think in that circumstance. And and i think our relationship with the united kingdom with prime minister johnson is so strong and abiding. We will be able to move forward beyond this but He called on individuals from his press corps Without alerting us to that intention in advance. She actually speaks from dc. They were escorted out of tried to ask a question of biden. Well what he's saying is not true. What he's saying is The british prime minister called on british reporters and and And he answered the question but when the president called on us reporters. We were all ushered out. That's a lie it. This is different so what she says. Well we didn't know he was gonna do that okay. But let's just make very clear. And i have the audio to prove it. It's better without the visuals. I looked at the visual pretty closely. The president always looks dopey and sleepy. So that's beyond the point. But what happened. Is boris answers. The asu is asked a question. He called on the journalists. He answers the question and the minute he just s. He's just wrapping it up. That's when they jump in because no the us press didn't ask a question of present. Joe biden he didn't call on a reporter such as was misstated. Here they were so afraid he would interrupt through Unbalances the belfast. Good friday i mean. That's that's the they even the even step on his last words they're so afraid biden's going to take a question. Hello code red code red before they can even this should just be. Everyone should stay handlers. Oh yeah no. That's that's of course. That's the handlers. That's that's not. A single question asked. Yeah everyone needs this in their relationship from time to time you know when your conversation you just stuck either press a button to press a button and all of a sudden yeah. That's all the handlers. So that's what's going on there. They are afraid of this man. Speaking to the press and the anna showing it showing it. Well i mean just because of past experience he blows up. Oh yeah he's no good. He blows up he says stuff off the cuff that may or may not be true He does he's not well-briefed.

A million afghan children are at risk of starvation. We go now to the capital to kabul. Where we're joined by a non-gmo paul his latest article. The other afghan women appears in the new yorker. It's based on his deep reporting in the rural villages of afghanistan that have been devastated by decades of war. And now go. Powell is also the author of no good men. The living america the taleban and the war through afghan is a non. Thanks so much for joining us. Can you talk about who the other afghan women our. Thanks maybe when we were watching the images of streaming from kabul people desperately trying to get to the airport including many of my friends. You know it was easy to come to the conclusion that perhaps what was happening right now was the worst thing that had happened in the last two decades and of course there were many afghans who wanted to get out because they desperately want a better life and i don't blame them for that. There was another reality actually at the same time. That wasn't really as much and that was happening. Outside of kabul in rural areas. Where for the bulk of the last twenty years. The war was being fought so we think of the warren off guard as just happening in afghanistan. But actually it wasn't fought in most of the country there's only particular provinces where the fighting was happening so i visited helmand province in southern afghanistan. Which is really the epicenter of the violence for the last two decades. And i wanted to see how women there who had been facing roadside bombs and night raids and air strikes what they thought about the us withdrawal. So that's the other. Afghan women in the title and the piece is actually about trying to get their views of how they looked at The american withdrawal after two decades and gopal Just to make clear. Seventy percent over seventy percent of a population is rural so we have in a sense a highly distorted view because we hear about urban areas and in fact not just urban areas only a gobernador principally gobble now among the people that you spoke to a in one village. A ki lay A woman told you that a large number of her family all civilians had been killed in the last year and you went and spoke to many other families in the village and found that on average every family had lost ten to twelve family members During the war the war that they referred to as the american war. Could you elaborate on. What what they told you sure. So the women question her name was shakira and she a housewife who lives in a very small village in the valley of sangeen which was one of the areas of the most intense violence over the years and so i had the opportunity to meet her and interview her a number of times. And you know. I'm somebody who's been covering this conflict for many years. Even i was taken aback by the sheer level of violence. That people like her had gone through and had witnessed still she lost as you said sixteen members of her family. But what was remarkable or astonishing about. This was that this wasn't in one airstrike or one. Mass casualty incident is fourteen or fifteen different incidents over twenty years so there was one cousin who was carrying a hot plate for cooking and was miss hopley. It was mistaken for naive a roadside bomb and he was killed. There was another cousin who is a farmer who's in diffused and encountered a coalition patrol and. He was shot dead shakira. Told me he was. His body was just left there like an animal. There's so many different. Instances so people were living reliving tragedy again and again and it wasn't just shakira because i was interested after interviewing her to see how representative this was so i managed to talk to over a dozen families. I got there. The names of the people who were killed. I tried to triangulate that information with detrick tickets and other eye-witnesses and so the level of human loss of really extraordinary and most of these debts never recorded. It's usually the big airstrikes that make the media because in these areas. There's not a lot of internet penetration. There's not there's no media there and so a lot of the smaller ones and twos don't get recorded and so i think we were grossly undercounted. The number of into this war one of the other women that you spoke to pado said to you they're giving rights to gobbled women and they're killing women here. Is this justice. She said i mean in a sense. As you as you show in this in this piece the other women. They're two different realities in afghanistan. They're probably more but with respect to the attitude towards the taliban taking over the country. Could you talk about that. You've covered of course as you said the war extensively over many many years from kabul as well as elsewhere across the country when we think about women's rights afganistan we tend to think about ability to go to school to work to have representation in parliament and these are real genes that were made in the last twenty years but there are other women's rights. That aren't talked about when i asked czar or other women. What do you think about. The claim that the us was bringing women's rights off coniston. They told me you know. We can't walk outside without worrying to get blown up. So what right do you know. How is that Protecting our rights. It's also part of women's rights to be able to walk without fear to be able to live to a women's right right so they had very different conception of women's rights which was not that they rejected the Aspiration for wanting.

Why We Need to Quit Coal
"In nineteen forty eight. The british politician emmanuel shin well appeal to people to avoid wasting coal. But just as i am asking the minor but a greater effort to give you the coal you need. I also asked uses fuel at work and at home to burn coal catholic and to avoid way then cole was seen as key to a prosperous future Now seen as a means to a hotter and deadlier one it accounts for nearly half of the global energy systems carbon dioxide emissions this week a united nations report laid out how coal use must be drastically reduced. If there's any hope of reaching the paris agreements target of limiting warming to one point five or two degrees above pre industrial levels the un secretary general antonio gutierrez urged the world to get rid of it. It is time to put a price on carbon to phase out fossil fuel finance and then fossil fuel subsidies to stop building new coal power plants and co power financing domestically and overseas the report this week from the united nations and a group of international climate. Researchers laid out how difficult it might be to meet of these targets. Charlotte howard is the economists energy and commodities editor. So to meet the one point five degree target coal use would have to drop by eleven percent each year for the next decade to meet two degrees would require coal demand to drop by seven percent. That's about the same decline that we are expected to see this year and twenty twenty which was really a historic bad year for coal amid a global pandemic and so that lays out just how hard it is to achieve these goals but even safe the knowledge that it is a terrible fuel. It is still widely in use right. What what is the the global picture of coal consumption look like well. This has been a really interesting year because in some ways it has eliminated both the progress being made against coal as well as illuminated. Just how tricky. It's going to be to get rid of it. In parts of the world in the west and in europe you've seen coal under consistent pressure due to this combination of factors that are mutually reinforcing from government policy which promotes renewables investors becoming increasingly wary of stranded assets and the risk of investing in coal. As well as really good alternatives to call in america this wave of natural gas that was unleashed by fracking. Helped retire a lot of coal plants and now the cost of renewables have declined by so much that in most of the west new solar new wind is actually less expensive than coal from existing. Coal fired power plants so caused really struggling to compete. And the question is how you can start to drive down coal and other parts of the world where it continues to grow if co falls in the west but rises in asia which already counts for three quarters of coal consumption. You're gonna blaze right past the goals of the paris. Climate agreement and yet the question around fossil fuels more generally has been developing economies can essentially catch up to the west without making those same mistakes while while the west is taking. Its foot off the gas as it were. It's worth remembering that american europe. Of course their own economic development was powered by coal and that even now coal consumption per person in india which is the world's second largest coal consumer is less than half the coal consumption per person in america. And so there's this question of. Why should we limit our own economic growth and limit access to a cheap and reliable form of electric city and so you see countries starting to reckon with this trying to find ways both to meet their climate targets as well as continued to support rapid growth. But you say that. Asia is sort of central to to this equation and yet even china for example is is making very ambitious promises about zero carbon output. That's right you saw decision. Paying set out a goal of carbon neutrality by twenty sixty in september and that is a really big deal. China accounts for more than half of all the world's coal consumption. It is the world's largest emitter so having that level of political commitment from government that essentially controlled is very important and the question is how soon china may act to set in motion plans towards limiting its emissions. There are few really key documents that are coming up. So china's five year plan will be published next year that could include a net cap on coal. Which would allow new installations of coal plants. Only as they replace older ones that are more polluting and then also by the end of december china has to make a fresh pledge to fight emissions under the terms of the paris climate agreement of two thousand fifteen. So i think we'll get some more clear direction soon but it's part to overstate just how important it is to think about china and coal just because of how large the emissions are will. That's the story for china. But you you said. Asia more generally is really the the big piece of this puzzle. Some of the forces that are helping to drive down coal in the west don't fully apply in asia and that's largely because of the degree of government intervention. Obviously in china you have state backed coal companies elsewhere in asia to you have governments that are involved either and owning national electricity companies in india coal. India limited is the state-backed coal company. That is the world's largest coal miner. There's a very difficult political challenge. Which is that. The interests of the state and the interests of the coal industry are very closely intertwined and so even when private capital begins to fall away from coal you can have public support for it and that means that it can be more challenging to make this transition. That in parts of america are parts of europe so with all that in mind then. What prospects do you think for reaching the targets that are laid out in this week's u report. I think there are a few really promising things that have happened. One is just this extraordinary decline of coal fired. Power in the west shows that it is possible. Five years ago. Coal accounted for about a third of britain's electricity generation and in the second quarter of this year accounted for zero point five percent. The other thing is that in the five years since the paris agreement you seen real progress on a number of levels you've seen market forces evolved such that renewables really are competitive in much of the world. Even some middle income countries like indonesia where coal is still technically cheaper than renewables. You've also seen a really big ramp up in commitment from global leaders not just xi jinping but india's government has set very aggressive targets for renewables. Of course you have now. In the form of joe biden someone who really views climate as a key part of his presidency. He signalled his commitment to fighting climate. Change the appointment of john. Kerry's climates are and. I think that having the person who was america's seniormost diplomat a secretary of state during barack obama's presidency is important signaling to the world that a new round of leadership on climate is coming and one of the most important tasks in thinking about climate. Diplomacy is how to encourage this shift away from coal and that includes how to support those who suffer from the shift the workers of course also some of the patients that have vested interests in call.

"Ellen Miller directs the news literacy project. You're just outside. Washington DC welcome. Good to be with. You hope you are staying safe of during all of these difficult times, so let's just take a moment for our listeners. Who maybe didn't join us the last time you and I spoke? Tell us what the news literacy project is. How you work with students and people can believe what you're telling them right now. The News Literacy project is a national educational nonprofit that produces resources and empowers. Eaters to teach middle and high school students how to know what news and information to trust, and to give them an appreciation of the vital role, the First Amendment and a free press in democracy. Our goal is to give students. The tools to be informed. Engage participants in the country civic life. We are rigorously nonpartisan. We have a commitment to. Forty transparency and accountability and. To, giving the next generation, the tools to fully and effectively participate in the country civic life so Allen. Misinformation is not something real new. It's always seemed to exist. Sometimes we call it propaganda Sometimes it's just plain misinformation or disinformation for a lot of different purposes. It feels like a bigger deal today in society. Why is that well? In fact, we're living in the most of complex information landscape in human history. We have more verifiable and credible information available to US literally at our fingertips than ever before, but it is being overwhelmed by a Sioux Nami of misinformation that seeks to mislead US exploited US and divide us, young people today are inheriting an information ecosystem created by another generation that did not fully foresee just how it would unfold. Therefore, we feel we have a responsibility to give them the tools to successfully navigate this landscape in a way that can bring us together around their fireable agreed upon facts. Why Teaching News Literacy is in an essential life skill today the World Health Organization has in addition to declaring this pandemic. Declare something called an Info democ problems with information. Can you talk a little bit about what what an Info Democ might be and how we can live through that, too? Yes, so the World Health Organization coined the term in for democ to refer to the overwhelming and rapidly evolving amount of information, including a torrent of misinformation about the corona virus outbreak fact more recently united, Nations Secretary General Antonio Gutierrez went further, and he called this dangerous epidemic. Epidemic of misinformation, a poison that is putting lives at risk full statement. How can we is consumers of news and sure we're reading real news and not looking at fake information or manipulated images video. The responsibility really is on the consumer to be vigilant in checking what we're seeing, and particularly what we're sharing to make sure it's credible. There are some really basic concepts that I think we can all apply The first thing is to pause. Pause to look at what we're seeing in to check our emotions. Is this something that is provoking anger or fear or amazement? When information causes that kind of response, it makes us particularly vulnerable to manipulation, then examined the source take a moment to do a quick search on the person or the organization to see what else they they have created, and whether they are credible. Check replies and comments anything. You're looking at to see if they confirm. Confirm or debunk what you're viewing. We generally would say find a wide variety of credible news sources with different points of view to consume and follow and follow a story over time don't take I source that you that you see and share it particularly. If you're uncertain, do not share it, and then finally used readily available online tools like Google reverse image, searching or fact, checking sites like fat, check, fact or slopes. If, there's something that you're uncertain about. You've talked a little bit about ways to sort of down and how people can try to determine what's what's true or false? Are there particular sources that people should be able to realize I? Mean I guess we should we be giving credence to government sources over private sources, or should we what are what are some of the more detailed nuances that people can look at to help them? Make up their mind well, certainly in the context of the pandemic there are sources that went to public health sources. The World Health Organization the CDC Of Public Health Agencies One can certainly look for you know fact, base credible news sources at the end of the day I mean it's incumbent upon all of us to not only search for credible sources, but to push back against those who are sharing things that misinform because the virus itself is a kind of hard and immutable truth, and it is impervious to spin or falsehoods or magical thinking. So I think the only effective way that we can combat. It is with science and fax and hard truths, and in this respect to we're all in this together.
UN: Libya's warring sides have agreed to restart peace talks
"The UN says Libya's warring factions have agreed to resume ceasefire talks follows days of heavy fighting in and around the capital Tripoli. Well, let's get more on this now with Mary Fitzgerald. Who is a research on Libya? Welcome back to the briefing Mary. Could you explain to listeners where we've got? Because there's been so many attempts to bring around some reconciliation? We have two warring parties here. The renegade leader, a half Dr who's oddly backed by many regional powers up against the forces in Tripoli, but just explain where we're on why there is potentially an opportunity for change. Well I would be very wary about even that ten am. And certainly there's a lot of skepticism on the ground amongst on radio bands about the these latest s statements from the U N various internationals and skepticism. That is warranted. This! Particular war. It's a war over the capital. Tripoli Started in April last year, when how star at launch offensive to capture at AAA from the. UN recognized a government on the very day that UN Secretary General Antonio Gutierrez was to try if impetus to the UN political process, that political process is something. Half Star has tried to undermine at every juncture for several years now, and he didn't capture the capital despite. Promising his Libyan supporters and also external backers that he would be able to seize the capital within days or weeks, and with little bloodshed, and here we are over year later with. Thousands, dead, and hundreds of thousands, said displaced as a result of of this conflict, so this latest burst of up talk about negotiations comes as after has experienced a series of losses in recent months. He's lost control of a number of. Small towns in western Libya, but more importantly Anne. He has lost a key asset airbase in Western, Nubia, from which he he used that to to launch attacks. The capital so after is not just. Facing a failing offensive, he's also really am on the back foot and. Some of his forces have have retreated in recent weeks including a whole host of Russian mercenaries who've been finding him, so that's the background to this. Clearly, after feels his his in a corner, his backers, no doubt the UA at primarily also Egypt Saudi, Arabia and Russia and also clearly are in a bit of a pickle in terms of of the way forward here so this To restart talks aimed at reaching a lasting ceasefire. Talks that have been suspended for for the last three months, that was a an earlier burst at the beginning of the year brokered by Russia and Turkey Turkey being back our backer rather of the. The internationally recognized government that hostile his trying to unseat. They basically. Created a momentum earlier this year that led to those initial and talks, but this is very stop start and the reason there is a lot of skepticism on the ground in Libya is Libyans have seen so many times before promises about, and it goes stations to agree a ceasefire, and they ultimately breakdown, and and we're still in the middle of this grinding stalemated war. War A married Tummy. If people. In Tripoli, the capital is is life kind of taking on in an okay way. We know that they have a battle to deal with corona virus as well which is is very difficult to deal with when you're being besieged on your outskirts. How is the city functioning at this time as the city that you know personally very well? Well, my my last trip was in December and at that point that was a lot of trepidation. amongst residents of AAA that the war could move closer and closer to the center of the city while we've seen happened in recent weeks. Is that there has been an increase in targeting off Just at the weekend, seven people were killed. When there was shelling on a popular picnic spot, right in the center of. The U. N. and international human rights organizations subset most of these civilian debts, most of this indiscriminate shelling. Is attributable to to his forces. There is a belief on the ground in Tripoli that. These attacks are being done as a kind of a revenge or out of frustration, because basically run, and his forces are not getting what they want on top of all of that. Yes, covid nineteen has made an appearance in in in Libya. There have been hundreds of cases as been recently been a spurt of cases in southern Libya, but this of course has made things all the more challenging for for ordinary Libyans what we've seen in some. Positive way in in the last couple of days is the return of some of those thousands of people have been displaced over the last year as a result of the war, some of them are returning to their homes, but there returning also to. Some residential areas where landmines have been planted just today Human Rights Watch issued a report basically accusing after his forces of. Planting landmines across territory that they were in around Tripoli. Particularly residential areas are reapproach. Is it a a an amazing update on this story? We need come back to you more clearly on another show, but Mary thank you for joining, and that was the Libya expert. Mary fits General Gerald and you're listening to the briefing monocle.

Climate Summit Ends in 'Disappointment'
"History's longest ever United Nations. Climate Conference ended ended yesterday with very little to show for delegates from almost two hundred nations postponed a decision on global carbon markets until next year one thing that became clear in this conference. If it wasn't clear already is that there's a real disagreement between developed and emerging countries on what to do about climate change. UN Secretary General L.. Antonio Gutierrez called the outcome disappointing and he referred to it as a missed opportunity. Let's talk about this more with Colina harasha cough. WHO joins us from Madrid via skype she? Here's politico Europe's climate emissions and energy reporter. Welcome to the program Good Morning. So why why was there. No real deal here at all while you're ready set before it was a it was a difficult cop. I mean you're saying disappointment. All around I think one thing that it showed his first of all all that tackling climate change in reducing emissions is a very difficult thing and the last two weeks you could tell how countries where facing off with each other about how to do that and how much they wanna be required to do that and I think that player usual. Why the last two weeks? So what is the divide that Noel just mentioned between developed and emerging countries. How is it that they see the world differently? Well we need to go back a bit. About what the parents have you ever been really did. The Paris agreement was meant to ensure that every country not just the rich Shen industrialized nations but every country would say yes. We will do something to battle climate change now. The challenge is of course that industrialized nations just like the U. The block the European Union as well as the US and others. They've been driving up emissions over last decades now emerging economies that China India and others. They say well. We'll still growing so let us grown Lewis do our economic development and care for people. Oh they're still saying wait a minute. It's our turn to pollute salute. We get a turn to pollute just like you had no not really because they did agree to the Paris agreement so everybody said yes. We have to fight climate change but now the question is who has to do more to fight it over the next years and that's where the challenge comes in because of course looking at the emissions data and many countries that will drive emissions in the future sure are emerging economies. And so now just as we are on the eve of the Paris Agreement taking force in twenty twenty we see that battle playing out and then of course I global geopolitics and very difficult international environment. Don't help because the UN after all is is a reflection of I mean it's the club of countries and so even climate conference. It's larger politics at play. Of course the United States pulled out of the Paris Agreement and has taken a very different view of climate change the reality of climate change under president trump. How has that affected negotiations? Couldn't you can feel that the. US is no longer her there. as you will remember the the. US is the US in China that corporation before the Paris agreement was crucial with the US. Gun At least. He's like the big administration ambig- administration the muscle being gone. You let countries that are that are WANNA push back they have much more space to maneuver and push back in that something. Anything you
