"The noise level in politics can be overwhelming. That's why the team at five thirty eight relies on data and evidence to get a deeper understanding of what they are thinking and whether politicians are being responsive to americans so every monday and thursday they dig into questions like how our young people or cities changing our politics. Why is the midwest growing more republican while the south is getting more democratic. And what does it mean for who will hold power in washington. It's a great. Listen tune into the fivethirtyeight politics. Podcast every monday and thursday. That's five thirty. The numbers spell them out five thirty eight politics every monday and thursday. Wherever you get your podcasts. Spend a lot of time in talking about russian cybercrimes with good reason. In past years intelligence officials have said. The russian government is used to stabilize entire countries. Private criminal enterprise. In russia have launched crippling ransomware attached with little consequence. But if you thought russia is the main threat. American officials are worried about who yesterday by change. Turn some breaking news this morning. The us and key allies are joining forces against china. Nsa fbi and homeland security claim that the people's republic of china has been contracting with and profiting from criminal hackers who attack companies around the world in a announcement american. Nato officials explicitly called out china for one of the most concerning hacks of the year. Sing it bankrolls cybercriminals for its own various purposes the doj also charged four chinese nationals in different alleged cyber attack. Some perspective now. Dmitri alperovitch is the founder and former chief tech officer for crowd. Strike the big cyber security from he now leads a silverado policy accelerator. He works on tax policy. Dimitri thanks for being here. What is the us alleging here. And how big of a deal is it. So what the. Us is saying. Is that the big tax that we saw earlier. This spring where the actors compromised literally tens of thousands of organizations around the world by looking for vulnerabilities in their email servers. We are learning more about the scale of the hack into microsoft's exchange server email software indiscriminately scan the entire internet looking for anyone that has a service and compromise them. They're saying that was a chinese two months ago we were talking about solar winds and how that was a big dream hack. We went around and saying look. This stuff is getting serious. I think this is even bigger. That was a chinese ministry of state security. Their version of effectively and the contractors are working for them a major accusation and the other thing that they're saying is that these contractors while they were conducting this operation on behalf of the chinese government the often moonlight to conduct criminal activities such as ransomware deployment ceiling credit cards. And other things that you expect to see from criminals. My understanding is that the chinese government not unlike the russian government is not doing this themselves but are protecting those who are doing and maybe even accommodating them being able to do this has been known for quite some time and in fact microsoft went into acknowledged that hack back in march sad that they believe that. This was tied to the chinese government. What was different here is that you had both the united states and an unprecedent coalition of allies nato countries european union australia japan all coming together and pointing the finger at china which is a very big development. So there's this inclination to make every hack sound the same or every hack is big. It's widespread as damaging to companies that get hacked like that's true but it's difficult to distinguish what are the truly disturbing. I'm trying to figure out you know how much to china move beyond the norms here. And what is china's engel like. Why would china be doing this sort of thing that gets them this kind of attention so there are two types of hacks it that one typically sees one is theft of information. Us law enforcement for the first time accusing the chinese military of being behind. Perhaps the biggest hack of americans ever hundred fifty million americans were impacted by the two thousand seventeen hack on one of the largest consumer credit reporting agencies equifax festive secrets. Such espionage activities have credit card numbers theft included the names dates the birth and social security numbers of nearly half the us population. A major brewery has been hit by a cyber security incident. That could make it harder to find beer. And then there's destruction where you take down network where you hold the network hostage completely out of diesel and gas we saw the hacks back in may but what is different about this case in particular is that the chinese were focused on espionage. They were breaking into traditional targets. You would expect them to to care about think tanks government agencies companies that they wanna still intellectual property for but then they realized that microsoft was gonna identify this vulnerability in patchett making it much more difficult for them to find new victims so they raced to literally infect everyone whether that was a legitimate target targeted not in completely indiscriminate matter and quite reckless manner. And that's why it was so important to call them out. It was like that's what's beyond. The pale is the kind of indiscriminate. Like we're gonna get every american whoever every world citizens stuff exactly every company regardless of whether it's legitimate intelligence target or not. Well okay so then if you said this was like this unprecedented call out from the international community. You've also questioned whether the us actually went far enough here. So what. what else would you like to be done while the one thing that we have not seen any administration last four administrations have not done. It is sanctioned china for cyber activities communist pennsylania. Johnny tim really only get sixteen billion dollars worth from russia if he were to come with major sanctions on china. Is there a risk that we could be hurting our own a well. I would say i that we'd take cyber actions against our country and against a private sector entities quite seriously. We have sanction russia roof sanctions iran. We have sanction north. We're with yet so far. We have avoided sanction china and in fact even our european allies sanction china for several cyborg nefarious activities. We are not holding back We are not allowing any economic circumstance or consideration to prevent us from taking actions warrant and also we reserve the option to take additional actions warrant as well so it's long overdue for us to act and start sanctuary both the contractors that are performing this activity as well as a private companies and state owned enterprises in china. They're benefiting from it. And frankly we've been tolerating and a number of chinese activities such as theft of intellectual property for way too long and it's long overdue for us to start acting and we just heard from the chinese government overnight denying that they take part in any cybercrime calling these claims groundless and militias. Dimitrios perovic thank you so much for the time really helpful thank you. It was a groundbreaking moment when star college. Football player named michael sam announced he was gay. They shouldn't matter if i if i work hard if i make plays. That's all it should matter. Can they can he. Can he help us win games. He was drafted but he never played in the nfl which made it even bigger this year when an active nfl player raiders. Defensive lineman named carl. Nasa came out on instagram. Want to tell you a quick moment to say that i'm gay. Meaning do this for a while now. But i finally feel comfortable enough to get it off my chest. He said he hoped this would not be seen as a big thing to come but if there was a gay athlete out there somewhere that needed support. He wanted them to not be afraid well yesterday. Another pro athlete did come out and.

"This is an abc. Podcast talk before the australian paypal and he said all he royces. Holy increased alvin around this area news. I tell putting a price on carbon emissions has been a radioactive subject in australian politics for decades now today. Julia gillard unveiled a plan for what she's dubbed a clean energy future beacon businesses that generate carbon pollution will have to pay a price. I have a simple message for the australian people. This is a dog of tax coalition wins. Tony abbott says he'll have a mandate to abolish the carbon tax side. Should recognize that. I can inform you that the government of strike has changed in fact. We still haven't reached any kind of political consensus. And in the meantime plenty of other countries have well and truly moved on so much so that some of those places are now thinking of going a step further punishing countries. They don't think of pulling their white using trade as a weapon and for the twenty seven countries that make up the european union. Australia is on that list. I'm angela wipe year stephen smiley today on the signal. Europe is about to unveil new details of a plan to slap tariffs on imports of carbon intensive products like aluminium and steel. So what could that mean for a stratton industry a will other countries follow suit and will any of this influence. Australia's domestic climate change policies. We're not guy to achieve net zero in the cafes. Dinner parties and wine buys of inner cities it will not be achieved by texting are industries that provide livelihoods for millions of australians off the planet as our political opponents sought to do when they got the chance it will be achieved by the pioneering entrepreneurialism and innovation of australia's industrial workhorses farmers and scientists. So the prime minister scott morrison message to the domestic audience as well as two people watching from overseas has been consistent if nothing else. It's the australia is preference is to achieve net zero carbon emissions by twenty fifty. However that happens it will not involve carbon pricing be that a tax on carbon or an emissions trading scheme and even going. That far isn't popular with. In some quarters of the coalition there has been pretty open. Opposition from people including the former resources minister in queensland ellen senator not kind of for example have consistently said on dead set against us signing up to net zero. And i'm dead. Set against a net zero because zero is the biggest game since she lost received. An email from nigeria. So that's a taste of the find in the potty room and we will get back to this but it's not the only side. The government is facing pressure because politicians in other countries do not think australia's carbon reduction plan is likely to cut it. And that's particularly the case within the european parliament in brussels circle Doubts other countries. Do not play their role. They're they're fisher in defiance against hijacked. You're not not riding at that level and australia to the three binders and that we will accept it. A free writing means that continues to make the providence based on fossil fuels so to get a sense of what europe and other places have been doing on this so far and what kind of economic pain might be coming. Australia's way as a result. We called frank mala. He's a climate policy expert specializing in carbon pricing. And he's worked for governments and universities in washington sydney and canberra so your extremely well positioned to give us an overview of The climate policy settings worldwide. Can we start with a basic question. What is an emissions trading scheme. What is it. I'm going to do. How does it work. What emissions trading scheme is is one of the two common forms of carbon pricing the other one the carbon tax and emissions trading scheme works by putting a cap on the amount of emissions across a whatever sectors or activities are included in this game and then those responsible those those are the emissions or otherwise responsible under this game must have permits to to emit carbon dioxide and ideally By those permits at an auction run by the government. The difference between on emissions trading scheme in carbon tax is that one set surprise you pay the tax. That's the price you can reduce your emissions of pilots tax The other sets the amount of emissions And then the process in the maka so very similar and that the devil released the details in h how the games are designed and we know in australia. This has proved to be very politically difficult to get To get up but they are countries and in fact regions of the world. Where this this mechanism is in place and has been so for years. Where do we say emissions trading worldwide. The moment oh well. I think carbon pricing i mean savarese raising some countries going the tax written some of the mission trading right but kevin processing is on the rise because there's countries are tightening. Their emissions targets are having to extend to more sectors and taught in the caps on their emission striding games or increased carbon taxes and. That's what europe's been doing. People think of the. Us resolve is not hanging. Having a prospect at the state level about forty percent of the us economy is under state level Kaban process games and Korea canada have games japan which has been struggling for many years as really opt. Its efforts to develop a game. And i think we'll see something they so. Many of our trading partners in fact have carbon pricing on former another.

"This is the financial exchange with Mike Armstrong and Barry Armstrong. Markets are rallying, and we're having a conversation this morning about China since World War two, the United States has had the largest economy in the world. It's all going to change within the next three years if the rate of trajectory of the Chinese economy continues, and President G yesterday made a speech that sounded pretty confident, at least on the surface of it, Michael and They're looking to form more trade partners, and I don't know there. It sounds like the gauntlet has been has been dropped. Yeah. I mean, I think the speech that we saw at the conference yesterday with President Xi Jingping Um Woz. A bit of change certainly change compared to where things stood 10 years ago where China was just kind of quietly humming along to try and grow as fast as possible, but sort of escape notice of some of the things that they were doing. This was much more about cementing China's place in the world economy and just, you know, cementing their influence on the rest of the world and This. Aside from the coronavirus. I think there's going to be the single biggest challenge for the Biden administration, and there's a lot of things that Trump did. But in my opinion, the most successful thing that he did during his presidency was Drum up public support for Facing the issues that we do with China May I think that you know, going back to 2015? I don't think that public support existed. But I think it does today in a bipartisan fashion, where a lot of people Ah lot of Americans in a lot of politicians agree that we need to take a stance on China. Um the question is obviously going to be. How do you do it? You want to address to me? The key priorities are threefold. One. You can't keep your markets closed. If you're gonna act the way that you do yet you have to allow foreign companies to access Chinese markets. They need to make changes to intellectual property, respect for intellectual property and what they're willing to do there. And then very serious human rights violations. Very genocide. Very, very genocide is still a problem s O. Those three things, in my view are what needs to be addressed here, and I think the difficult part for any administration Is going to be That the United States can't go it alone. It doesn't That's that's the lesson that I drew from the last four years is that you can get the Americans support the American people behind the cause. But unless you have the European Union, Australia, Japan, Canada Mexico onboard with taking a stance on China and driving change It's not going to happen, and the European Union just struck a deal with child so they're they're off the table. And I think that's going to inherently be an issue here because you know the Biden administration. I think a lot of administrations want to. I don't mean to make this a one for one exchange, but they want to address trade issues with the European Union with Canada with Canada, Mexico are kind of behind us at this point, but it is very difficulty too. Do things like increased manufacturing in the United States to drive up wages in the United States and increased more production here, while at the same time drumming up support to take on China. Right. They are inherently conflicted because if you want to get the European Union on your side of taking on China, then you probably need to have a looser trade policy with the European Union, which is going to lose American jobs. Right? I don't really see many other ways to go about it and that is going to be. I think the biggest single challenge that any administration is going to face here is what do you prioritize? Do you prioritize? Combating Chinese influence over the global economy. And then taking this new influential rule role. And perhaps, you know, spreading the Chinese form of, you know, quote unquote communism across the world. Verses. Keeping manufacturing jobs in the United States keeping, you know, keeping all sorts of things that are done in the United States today that have been given up of the last few decades, keeping them here, and maybe there's another way around it that I haven't thought of right. Maybe maybe there's some other way that you can drum up support among the European Union tip to face these issues. But I did. None of them come to mind for me right now. Yeah, No, it's it's problematic. I mean, there's a few areas where we get along with China. Climate change macro economic policy coordination. You know, health issues like the virus. They you know, we all if we're going to the global economy we need to, you know, have decent health issues and global climate that Isn't going to her manufacturers and harm humans right now. We don't have that right. The weather patterns are changing for a variety of reasons. Um If it's a Biden has a tough task ahead of them. With China on we're just behind the April this is what we're doing is trying to today probably should have been done 20 years ago. I should have man instead, we're facing it now. And like I said President, Trump did a lot of things well, largely drumming up public support for taking on these issues. But where he e. Think has to be mentioned that he didn't succeed is changing the actual behavior and, you know, granted, he only had a couple of years to do it. But the reason that he failed us not because the terrorists that the United States put into place on China weren't steep enough, right? It wasn't that that the economic actions that we took on weren't dramatic enough. It was that we're the only country doing it. And so how do you convince those other questions to countries to get onboard? Recognize an issue for what it is and make the change I think is is directly Contradicts some of the other goals of any U S Presidential administration. That's that's going to be the difficult part. All right. Shares of General Electric her up 6% this morning, based on news that the $4.4 billion in the fourth quarter cash flow, beating its own projection and sending Ending 2020 without burning cash. They had been projected to lose money again in 2020 and in 2021, Larry Culp coming in seemingly doing a decent job turning it around. Yeah, I mean, it is still a you know, giant ship to try and steer in a different direction, and it's going to take time. I think this most recent quarter had a lot to do with What G he does in the renewable space that that whole space has gotten a huge lift over the last six months on G does manufacturer a lot when it comes to renewable, renewable power, wind power, all sorts of different stuff. I don't think they have a lot of presents in the solar arena, but in other areas they do Um, you know, at the same time last year, they took a massive hit from their airplane engine manufacturing business, which is what drove the stock, you know, basically cut it in half from Where they were in February to where they were in March, But you've seen a pretty good rebound there. And if you couple that with a rebound in the aviation market at some point, then yeah, this could be the turnaround of some form of new General Electric. I don't think anybody is buying into the idea that they're going to be the world's largest company at any point in the near future again..

It went and got a deal. Dot deal is supported by the european union governments and by the government or britain followed by a vote in parliament overwhelmingly supporting it. Also but it was opposed by some asked while trotskyites liberals and nationalists motley collection of individuals. I must see thankfully. Neither i nor the right honorable norman baker my former complimentary colleague there. Because we've got jobs now on the radio and on the television and he's just fresh from his weekly radio show and joins me now. The right honorable norman baker. How wonderful to see you normally just hear you. You're still doing your radio. You can tell us about that later. I'm a listener. You're because i like the genre. The era of music that you deal with. But if we'd been together in the house of commons this past week how would you have voted. Norman against the bill the basis of codes and you would have voted for george on different sides on this particular matter as region is we've got we've got a deal as a pretty big deal protect goats being shipped though which is to the benefit of the eu. It doesn't do protect services. But john age of all exports in fact because the eu wants to tweet his outs tweezers. So it's relevant suit britain. Very well i've been out scorebig. Were going to be a little transpired. That way i think is months unfold. You mentioned the chocolate note. Dover well the may not be no dove. Because i won't happen. Well jeopardy gold their trucks in early before the thirty first of december deadline coming holidays in san. Let's see. I think in a couple of weeks so you would have effectively for voted for no deal in which the would've been aeroplanes. Flying out the scott because the motion on the aldo paper was for the deal. The motion fell in the time available. We would elect without deal. What kind of remain our policy is that. Well as theresa may said it's relate apologize. Suppose would have been the best deal in the one that we find the with baloney. Look i mean the situation blows. We had this rush negotiation power tied to the whole business. Joe june appreciate. Is it no proper role. The situation there was a four or five our debates at midnight. I mean it was a hopeless situation so but again you have to look at it. And say is this deal in britain's interests and i don't believe it is i think the labor politician predictors an historic mistake in what they've done because this is their iraq war. This is the decision taken which will now be hung run next and if all goes pear shaped that i think it might do in the years ahead. Label the voted forage. Now you say that it may well go pear shaped it may well not of course the country voted for it and therefore must have it on you endanger of being. I don't of. You're still in the liberal democrats by people like you and then not in danger of being seen as charlie wishing the country to fail wishing for the very outcome that you had predicted and the logic of that is to offer the voters that we should rejoin the eu. It you think the liberal democrats would prosper as the party offering to rejoin the eu. Well george i mean. I'm not speaking the damn so remember the fact that you have to politics as you've done very well yourself many times. Stand up what you think is right whether it's popular not. The denton championed. The rights of hong kong refugees did that. there was on oprah. We should against the iraq war when the majority almost all image. After i'd seen this week votes at all didn't and i didn't so you have to. What you think is russian politics and with you. Great if not gonna least show consciences clear. Well that's a good point but while but my point about manifesto promises to rejoin be. It's quite likely to in my view that notwithstanding what you've said the liberal democrats will not go into the next election promising to rejoin neither labor however remained supportive in the last general election. So actually they're not following the logic of the position of conscience otherwise they'd now say vote for us we'll we'll apply to rejoin well look as fully as election. George labor certainly won't vote to rejoin. That's very close cheers. Dharma says he will try. And the ad just got a big bowl with europe Arrest warrants one or two.

And right now, more than one third of states plan to have their bar exam online, and that's a lot of issues in terms of tech issues. Security issues. To get the latest. We welcome. Sam Skolnik Bloomberg Law Senior reporter. So, Sam, if I take my bar exam online, how comfortable can I feel about the security of all of that? Hi guys. So not very a long story Short is. There have been a whole number of issues that have been raised a CZ the number of mentioned about a third of the states, including most of the biggest states in the country, like New York Oranje. Are preparing for these online bar exams in early October. What happened is they're looking at What's already occurred in a number of smaller states sort of one ofthe states, Michigan, Indiana in a vat of Louisiana that have already tried their own individual online bar exams. Andi at each of which has encountered technical issues, in some cases that they decided to scrap the online exam or delay it out of out of fear that it's not going to go off properly. On. So what's happening is as October draws closer, you have upwards of like 30,000 folks, many more who are looking to potentially swamp the same. Vendor's systems to the same software systems. A TTE the same time and concerns are that they're just gonna go off a CZ hoped for The state administrators claim that they're working diligently with the vendors to fix and switches the software bugs and that things will go off. Well. Another issue that raised our privacy concerns. The deal is that The way that these online the state administrators hope to prevent feeding is to gain access. Two Webcams to test takers, laptop computers and Webcams to basically monitor them. Either through human what are called remote Proctor's or if they actually have a software to look at them that monitors that's of course, the tested if their flag for certain Activities that their head glance too far to the wider left were of a pet enters the room or if they have to stand up. Suddenly these things were flagged. Azad actions were okay and they said Yeah. I mean, the dog enters the room, and that puts the examined risk is that true? It is. It is right. What? What? What you're having. This. This goes to a broader issue, which is notion that a lot of these stickers They're exiting law school, not necessarily with big law firm jobs lined up, but many of them were public interest lawyer types they have Tens of thousands of dollars of debt. They already have grave concerns about passing a bar in the first place, even in a non pandemic. I mean, what's a percentage? You know that percentage of harmony usually passed the bar. It's really very state by state. Some states like California I believe others like I think it also New York. Maybe them like North Carolina. The percentages lower left 50%. Yeah, but in many other states tired, but I have all these additional stress. Yeah, That's why Paul. That's why bombed the G Matt's vet but walked in the room and So, Sam. I mean the issue here. I mean, this is a state by state type of thing. There is no federal kind of testing, like the S. A. T, for example, is there it's really a state by state issue. It really is. So you're having. You know what some folks told me is really chaos. What did it and that sort of 20,000 ft level. What state is doing many states? They're doing things that are different than all the others on DH what you had in late July or even graver concerns when many of the smaller states almost half of the state 23 of them demanded that folks wanted to give up of our two it in person, meaning they went into the huge exam rose as traditionally done It was some social distancing measures put in place like folks had to wear masks. Typically, there were spaced farther apart. But there were huge concerns, especially from folks who are immunocompromised or who were You know regularly, who had kids at home or elderly parents in one of the visit after they're concerned about contracted covert 19 simply by Going and trying to regulations. That's an attorney. So you know, initially when there were when folks with these other states like New York, California were told they were doing online, they weren't They weren't thrilled. It was a relief. But now that all these other issues come up, it's caused again. Stress is to, uh to to Russian before Of theatre thing. Well, I would have to leave it there. I'm so sorry, Sam. Thank you so much greatly greatly appreciated Sam Skolnik there on the bar exam, which sounds like it's really, really hard. Yeah, that's less than 50% that I don't like those odds.

Postmaster General Lewis to Joy said he is suspending changes the mail service that raised concerns over slow delivery of ballots and the fall election if the Democrats accused President Donald Trump of hampering the vote by mail process. Meanwhile, some election officials around the country are hoping to bypass the postal Service by installing ballot drop boxes and libraries. In Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro says his state will now have to scrutinize recent actions already taken by the post office. Facts and evidence on the ground here in Pennsylvania is that they have made specific changes to the way mail is delivered back in July that is impacted the flow of mail.

S. funding Tom the concern but from the White House from president trump is that the WHO's too closely tied to China what does he have to see do you suppose in order for the funding to to keep on coming yeah you know you can you can dig your heels in they have made my point it would be you know really an investigation an international one and independent one of what you actually think about that into was the root cause of of what happened in Wuhan who knew what where when why the the the relationship between the US secretary general W. H. O. and also Beijing itself all of the things need to be looked at in that they are going to think yeah the US might say okay you know we're in a a ticket the money again but until then the begging bowl is going out to other nations around the world saying look we got a big big shortfall here people are really needy can you guys step up so more money this particular year well and it's not just the U.

H. show I mean the European Union Australia they also have questioned how this all went down has anyone else threaten to pull funding nobody has a lovely right lot of people have a lot of questions but at this stage nobody else is saying I'm gonna yank the money why because it doesn't hurt the people are camped out in Geneva at WHL headquarters that hurts people at all times don't have enough to eat billion day out all right Tom rivers thank you very much for that report from London let's check on the roads right now is Brian noble CEO Thursday morning morning Brian good morning this report is brought you by UC Davis health things going pretty good on our roads around Sacramento we are no no accidents or hazards if you're super commuter headed westbound on I. eighty out of the bay area right now it's clear drive for you all the way to six eighty six eighty nothing to slow you down across Indonesia bridge into Concord Pleasant Hill in Walnut Creek if you stay on I. eighty headed into San Francisco in short nothing to slow you down all the way from west sac to.

"From president trump in the last few hours the food and drug administration in the U. S. has made it very clear that the hydroxy current Quinn should not be taken to treat coronavirus however such advice from his own officials has not prevented president trump taking the drug I happen to be taken construction hydroxy trickling right now yeah when a couple of weeks ago started take it in because I think it's kind of her learning good stories and if it's not good I'll tell you right I'm not going to get hurt by it it's been around for forty years from malaria for Lucas for other things I take it a lot of doctors take it well there's some serious health concerns involved in taking this drug if you have underlying health conditions for more I spoke to Dr Saira Madonna senior director at the system wide special pathogens program at New York City health and hospitals and she's also well known for her role in the Netflix documentary series pandemic how to prevent an outbreak so there's completely no evidence of any benefits of using hydroxy core Clint for treatment of chronic virus in fact it's the opposite there are known risk factors of having serious adverse side effects including death and so it's really a it's not a drug that needs to be used in this type of matter so he's put himself at risk is that what you're saying that's right yeah he you know anybody that takes this drug for reasons outside of its intended purpose is putting themselves at risk on top of that if you were in high risk groups for example you already have cardio issues then you're putting yourself in the at even higher risk for adverse side effects and even death and this is normally an anti malarial truck that's correct isn't it that is right yep so it is known to be used for any employer purposes of loss for lupus and rheumatoid arthritis and you know this just drug really has a history of adverse side effects so it you know it's it's been you know around for a long time but it's also known to have these adverse effects especially if you're using it for purposes outside its actual intended use is very important to know that you know even for physicians you know when you look at the FDA when it released as emergency authorization use clearly stated that it should only be used in a hospital under the care of a physician and I was early on and even now if you go on the FDA's website it shows that is not effective and that there are other studies being currently done and all that taken into account he is the president he is a very influential figures so what are your concerns now that he's gone on the record and said I'm taking it it's not going to harm me well your worries I think one of my biggest worry is and this is something that we actually saw in March when this drug was first announced of showing any type of role with chronic virus disease people actually started misusing its prescribe you know doctors are prescribing it and people were just going online and trying to get the drug in fact you know here in New York City we saw a record number of calls from poison control because of taking this drug and so coming from you know the highest level of federal authority really is extremely irresponsible and dangerous and it shows that president trump is following his impulse rather than following science and the advice of the large medical community and doctors and public health experts there is obviously a glimmer of hope everyone as I mentioned is going to desperate situation everyone's trying to figure out what is the drug that we can use to cure or treat this virus and luckily you know where in a situation where there is unprecedented collaboration at the international skills what would you like to see him do now then for me I think personally being in the field that I'm in and I'm constantly having to address misinformation I would like for him to make it clear that this is not based on medical advice this is not based on science this is not based on clinical trials academic research and scientific analysis it doesn't indicate what he's using it for and it's important for him to state that so essentially this isn't informed is it so if you're gonna make your message blunt about the statement what would it be you can't cure stupidity you need to follow the science need to follow the data you need to follow the facts and at the end of the day that is what's going to save lives the discernment of the senior director of the system wide special pathogens program at New York City health and hospitals not mincing her words Hey at least it's not bleach I thought well that's the president's personal health policy and equally important subject is president trump's national and international policy he has long alleged failings on the part of the World Health Organization and he's now just posted a letter threatening to permanently cut funding and reconsider America's membership of the WHO's not critics have said it's all to distract from his own failings in dealing with a pandemic but he says that the W. H. O. has been much too cozy with China the W. H. O. at the moment is currently hosting its annual meeting of course top of the agenda is the virus and the European Union and Australia have forwarded a draft resolution calling for an independent inquiry into the origins of the disease this has annoyed to put it mildly China would join now by former Australian prime minister China expert himself Kevin Rudd I'm Kevin welcome to the program what we just got medical opinion taking care of the self medication side of trump's latest outburst but what about this other issue what is your response to the trump threat to withdraw from the W. H. O. what will the effect what could be effective that be well it's very difficult to identify what's real in president trump's policy agenda and what is true a day to day retail politics by way of the politics of shall we say continuing distraction but that's just him for the purposes of this discussion it's a real proposal the United States has been progressively reducing it circle funding to the World Health Organization for some time but for the United States to comprehensively withdraw funding would mean that the effectiveness of WHO's particularly in developing countries where the virus is yet to have its full impact would be grossly irresponsible international humanitarian terms remember in various these countries the W. H. O. goes in and advises handle provides a direct material hoping the setting up of health systems to deal with the crisis on the ground it's not black a series of abstract piece of advice to the developed world saying be mindful of this and deploy a fully your health systems trying to developing countries this is what you need to do and by the way with people on a plane now to help you set it up and wouldn't tell you what would the effect also believe that in terms of the great power balance on the WHO's this just drives the W. H. O. further into the arms and sphere of influence of China which is exactly what Donald Trump doesn't want to happen he says well the inco here incident United States multilateral strategy period but it's within the World Health Organization battles for the ball trade organization and various other institutions such as the human rights council frankly beggars belief if on the one hand United States is saying the trainers using its geopolitical and geo economic muscle to increase its leverage at the international institutions to make those institutions more compliant with Chinese interests and values and on the other hand United States simply unilaterally withdraws well then it follows as a matter of logical consequence the trying his overall footprint of these organizations grows exponentially yeah a sign for the World Health Organization I'm not at the moment we see the European Union Australia forwarding this draft resolution to the W. J. wanting an independent inquiry in the sense that they would want to hold China's feet to the fire just like president trump would put Europe and Australia being abandoned by the ally in their attempts to get to the bottom of what happened in Wuhan at the beginning of the pandemic well the intrinsic surround the world health assembly which is currently underway has just been underway and its resolution to look at these matters it's a complex picture of the United States is not one of the co signatories behind this recommendation for this national distribution is being led by the European Union and then Australia joined together with dozens of other countries but the overall sure we say next political impact all right this overarching US threat of unilateral withdrawal frankly lands no support whatsoever to the substance of the moms here by the international community at large which is head of the virus come about how is it transmitted with the proper notifications nationally within China and then from Beijing to the WHL what the W. Richard and do about that's what the world community needs to wants to get to the bottom of this US action does not help crystal clear many thanks indeed Kevin Rudd former Australian prime minister on the line responding to one of the two news making comments by president trump specifically his threat to withdraw funding and membership in the World Health Organization we were also talking about his self medication BBC world service.

"The and that he could win the election to so I'm I'm I got a pretty good record on that my worry here is that this actually is and this is the poll to be the perfect issue for trump because it's what he ran on the the the the the the the post that essentially the bargain that was made a third of a century ago between between American business and China I'm between a huge swath of the Republican Party and the Chinese politburo was bad for us as I said in the first set of the show China so getting more like us way getting more like China so that now China which supplied us with defective medical equipment in the wake of this thing they sent us mosques within welcome ventilators that then what contest kids that didn't work out then now sending US drones which is to surveil you to see if your men in a state in lockdown and your inappropriately venturing out into our front garden they gonna get chat with a Chinese drive in and you can bet that unlike that test kits and unlike the ventilators and unlike them mas the drone does work because surveillance that world leaders in China kills more people then everybody else on the planet combined every year and yet we've made them the number one global economic power went out of our minds this is suicide by the transfer over all fruits into the hands of the Chinese politburo I'm so we didn't know anything we didn't know all the aspirin was made in China until this thing came along well well we think we're living in the land of liberty in fact it's like it Hey you took the Central Park zoo of liberty it's a big cage and we get to run around in the these colors don't run T. shirts and the don't tread on me T. shirts all of which are made in China and then something like this happens and China says actually you want to investigators European Union Australia and United States you really want to investigate us for what we do you better think about using but the thing about that a lot more carefully well that diabetes medicine you depend on isn't going to be coming through next month this was madness this was this is insanity and if we want to do this if you want to talk about a new normal the new normal should be the week return manufacturing when they told us that the jobs Americans won't do the George W. bush said that should never have become a phrase that should never have because because they're outsourcing all the while to China while you go to college and run up a six figure sum in college that Ted doing trans gender studies that a no viable mobile for societal slows survival and you're all gonna die if that's the plan if that sold you got going and so I would like this is the Trumpian fame he ran on China I didn't entirely rule out this whole business actually when they made the decision not to let the world know about this take your letter let people in Wuhan get on flights to northern Italy and flights to Madrid and flights to Paris and flights to New York City I don't entirely I don't entirely rule out that decision to lie consciously as being a response to the damage that was being inflicted on them by the by the trump trade negotiations so what so this is a classic Trumpian theme it's about boulder's about immigration about knowing who's coming into your country it's about trade deals it's about manufacturing it's about leading lines of of value in human dignity in all kinds of closed abandoned mill towns across parts of my state some parts of my neighboring states and all across this country and he should give out a big speech on from beyond the Trumpian themes about what the new normal is going to be the new normal doesn't mean that we can never go to a beach party again the new normal shouldn't mean that we can never go to a restaurant again this is the new normal shouldn't mean that we can never go to a movie house again the new normal should mean that we bring manufacturing home we bring medical we bring medicines home we have serious border control the wool is part of a Trumpian same this virus has to be walked into your country and open borders of a great facilitator of that this is trump trump trump this pharmacist from one on one and he should just lay it out in a big speech and I say this humbly I'm not someone who has his private line like rush does so all right all the rest of it but this ought to be this this virus exemplifies the platform that trump ran on in twenty fifteen he should own it I'm people should say that is to say the things he was saying five years ago this is what it's come to we we mortgage though we we out source the world's manufacturing to China and now they're threatening to withhold drugs we need and they've given us this this virus you gotta you gotta run with this thing you gotta you did it's fun to you know to just be like punch and Judy and what and why Brian Stelter with yet truncheon over the head every night that's fine but there's a big Trumpian platform they say hideous behavior of a totalitarian dictatorship we enable the dictatorship to become the world's number one economic power the evil that government is evil there shouldn't be a war wound institute of virology and the United States government and the Canadian government should be giving money to it H. Trumpian themes Trumpian themes that's really should be doing that's what I would be doing if I were in his shoes at five PM tonight not sign for us your cold straight ahead three is about joining rush twenty four seven if you become a.

Acid Raymond is executive director of war on want and from Capetown Capetown. South Africa has name. AESOP is executive director of the Climate Action Network International. She's joining US via democracy now video stream. We welcome you both to democracy now testing. Let's begin with you. You were there right through to the end. You organize the response on Sunday when the final cop closed closed. Can you talk about why it's being described as a monumental failure even by negotiators and then though the success is or the unprecedented level of organizing that's going on coming out of the summit. Amy Thank you very much for having me on the show. This full ones. I think across the board many policies and and civil society organizations and activists from different constituencies the trade union movement Indigenous Peoples Women and gender into one voice about the outcome of the scope and that it is a failure the clear gap between the reality the outside of this process whether that is the science. That's become kid with the one point. Five hundred votes whether it is the voices of many citizens wins in many countries across the world demanding a response to the climate emergency and in addition to that the impact already being felt felt in countries across the world the disconnect inside the walls of the triple seat with key countries like the. US Australia Australia. Japan was phenomenal. And not only. Were these These countries the key blockers in the process we also outside. Brazil added to that mix as well and so it's very clear that the commitment to addressing this climate emergency and in fact act the commitment to the Paris agreement was not demonstrated at all and this outcome clearly points in that direction. You mentioned Brazil L.. Now let's talk about the history of this particular cop conference of Parties. The Twenty Fifth Conference of Parties was supposed to be held in Brazil but then the man many many call the trump of Brazil the right wing president j you're both NATO. And one of his first acts cancelled the COP. In Brazil it was then moved to Chile and the right wing. President there in the midst of social upheaval like Chile hasn't seen in decades the protests that are going on there he cancelled so the cop Chile still presided over the cop in Madrid. Spain was last year. It was moved there in the last weeks. So you have Jerry. You're herbal Sinato a climate denier and you have president trump now trump is pulling the US out of the Paris climate made agreement. It would officially be pulled out the day after the election next year yet. How did they wheeled so much power at this cop? Well they still have they not out of the process yet. That will happen next. You should Lee and they did a lot a lot of power. There were stories about negotiators in the loss and damage negotiations saying they will literally being bullied by the US negotiators so they've played an extremely destructible particularly in the los undamaged negotiations pertaining into finance philosophy damage. And so you know this is unbelievable is always trying to break down you and language loss us and damage well. This is the impact of climate. Change the losses that you would have as already witnessing across the world with a through floods the damage that is expedience through devastating typhoons as we've seen for example in the Philippines. They David Station goes by fires. We have seen in Australia. So it's the losses and the damage related to that not only about out the extreme like these that goes loss and damage but something old slow onset so sea level is for example would be a slow. Oh a onset. It's not an extreme event. That happens all at once and this is exactly what the small island states are talking about in terms of their survival. Already they experiencing sea level it is and many have been forced to move. So displacement displacement is also part of the impacts of climate change that would need to be addressed as Raymond. We're speaking to you in London. You actually left a few days before the end of the summit yesterday because you went back to London to deal with well the election that took a place there. The landslide election for the prime minister. Boris Johnson over the Labour leader. Jeremy Corbyn what some like. George Mambazo have call all the climate election others called at Brexit But can you talk about in your time there and we see every year at these climate. I'm at summits. The significance of why this year was so devastating. An so monumentally failure. Well I mean we come into these climate talks with governments having an unprecedented Monday from that citizens if we remember millions millions of people have been marching on the streets calling on governments to take action to take urgent action on the climate. -mergency we've seen the scale of the impacts filling television vision screens in every single country in the world we've seen the impacts of floods and Dr Comments and of course at the same time we've also seen unprecedented a AH protests taking place around the world by economic inequality. It's clear that the world is broken. Governments need to act so you would have expected governments to come knowing knowing that this was a critical moment and come with ambition and instead we sold the United States aided and abetted by the rich developed countries. Take reckon bowl to to those items. So first of all governments came not willing to take action in terms of the lost decade when they've literally nothing in the previous decade a kid which is meant that the critical actions that are required in the coming decade of much. What's hard to the came? Attempted to block any support for poorer developing countries. If you just had from Tasneem I mean. This is obsolete outrageous. Some what they were actually asking for. Not just the United States but the European Union as well. He's basically to have liability for the dumbest of that. Inaction is causing and more heinous than that is only not putting anything on the table in terms of genuine.

New EU chief takes helm amid rising suspicion of China

"New president of the EU Commission also funded lion will have spent her first night in office last tonight. Having already we think held urgent telephone call with Beijing. The expose last week on the existence of Detention Kemper Muslim leaguers has brought China's track record on human rights right to the top of our funding lines to do list. Let's look at what she in. The Commission can actually do. Let's hear from Isabel Hilton. The editor of China Dialogue. Welcome back the studio Isabel. Doing no of this phone call to take place between Oslo Funder Lion and Beijing yesterday. We don't although she did she has made Much of Saying that it would so I imagine it would also imagine she'd get pretty dusty response from Beijing. What was the intentionally the? The purpose of the phone call was literally. That's really her first day in office yesterday on the Sunday indeed. I think that there is a feeling in Europe That China has been. It's sort of general after say trend against China in the last few months in in a concern in Europe that China has too much power and abusing its power to undermine global norms including on human rights and that Europe needs to take more bust view. So I think that what we're seeing in that commitment over these really appalling abuses That you know that's what we're seeing. A new commission come in with the determination to stand up to China just remind us of what was said what was revealed last week in this expose. On the treatment of weakened Muslim there was a cache of documents. Som Four hundred which went to the New York Times A further batch that went to an international consortium of Investigative Journalism Journalists and although Ah the existence of the camp said being extremely extensively documented for more than two years now the detail of the organization and including many a a personal and telling details which included in. What do you tell a university student going home for the summer? WHO finds that? He's Oh her entire family his disappeared so it was the kind of meticulous rupp very chilling planning State directed absolutely top down To to to lock up one in ten or as far as we know of the weaker population so although the camps were known about. There's something about you know the revelation of the of the of the bones of this policy that that made people deeply deeply uncomfortable and actually highlighted the degree to which China has go away with this so far. Is Anybody greatly surprised. However about these great revelations I think many people suspected that there was a but the fact is as you say as you've been saying continually there is this buildup of evidence against China that it is Going against the beliefs Explo- uh ex- exploiting the global norms. It's sort of surprises. That surprised me that as underline sort of took it upon herself to make a fresh. I should tempted something that everybody sort of knew about anyway. Well it's true that the camps were known about because they say that the detail of the documents Really confronted Particularly Europe actually with them with the inaction although we have in fact through the year Seen a growing effort particularly by Europe to confront China over Xinjiang at the The Council on Human Rights the UN Council Counseling Human Rights Meeting in Geneva There was a letter signed by more than twenty countries calling for China to release the detainees China has put in an enormous effort in the last few years to undermining the principle of universal human rights and particularly at the UN. So for example China has been trying to advance the the premise that notable rights to equal and the right to development and state sovereignty so victory entry trump's individual human rights and that goes directly against the universal principle. It it implies that poor people Don't have rights or or don't don't desire rights which is which is nonsense and that that's completely any it's an important breach and China has managed to mobilize countries search which have An economic dependence on China to support them in Geneva in mounted very well documented campaign trying to shut out civil society actors NGOs who might criticized trying to put in a government sponsored NGOs who would sing the praises raises of China's policies and explicitly saying two countries which Had any kind of economic dependence on China there quite a lot now that if they showed stop and criticized then you know deals would not go well if they showed up and praised then they would benefit so you know. There is no doubt that China has managed to Marshal Marshall a lot of opinion on its side in the has been remarkable silence for example or endorsement for many Muslim countries. They have not criticized at China. I know I on on locking up a million Muslims for being Muslim and that's pretty remarkable So you know. We are confronted with with the situation situation in which if these rights are defended. It's come down to the European Union Australia and Canada and even the United States is not reliable ally in this so I think that for the new commission the European Union. It's a bit of a moment saying do defend the system or not. What does the e you you do? Though in terms of concrete action I mean we've seen a trade war bursts out between the United States and China and neither side into becoming coming out well from it now. The European Union's Heft when it comes to trade is enormous but you can see immediately the any sanctions that you might put on. China will be met with equally tough measures. I think that I doubt that we would see a trade war. Exactly I mean it's true that the European European Union has is an enormously important trading block for China's largest trade partner but European Union. Although doesn't speak because one over trade Except for you know the kind of You wide regulations but individual countries tend to make their own make pursue their own interests with China But the fact that the e U is willing publicly to criticize China the e you could for example push at the UN. I'm for sanctions against individuals. Who are involved with this trade? It could name and shame companies that are dealing That are installing technologies in Xinjiang And in fact it could under the principles of of human rights and business. It could sanction companies over human human rights abuses. So it's not without weapons and and I think you know put China China very much dislikes being called out on human and rights abuses in a moment when it's trying to present itself as the benign actor On the global On the global scene so simply having you who are being vigorous in terms of its criticism changes the atmosphere and gives cover to some other countries which might wish to but don't quite have the courage ridged criticize China. Finally we have the member-state ambassadors who already in Beijing being invited to Xinjiang which is where the majority if we miss them live at the beginning of next year can anything be settled on then. yes Although these visits of course are heavily managed and it wouldn't be the first time time we've had official visits to Xinjiang in which The visitors the official visit confronted with people who sing and dance and say that they're happy to be there so I didn't think anyone. Anyone has enormous illusions about about what you're seeing And I think the you made its point by By giving the Sakharov prize the alarm toady a who is a weaker intellectual as an economist at a university in In Beijing who in twenty fourteen was sent to in jail for life had all his assets confiscated leaving his family destitute in a in a savage sentence against a man who had always been of voice of reason and moderation and who was well known to journalists and indeed to ambassadors and human rights workers So I I think that you know laying down these markers important The visit will you know I.
