3:34 pm
a cold winter in europe last year, the continent has failed to fill its gas storage tanks for the next 6 months. now that failure, percent gas prices surging. and there's very little evidence that their supply to be demand this winter. it's not just a problem for europe. the rest of the world could go without as rich countries corner the market in a similar way to the vaccines. this year alone, new york natural gas futures are up 106 percent to a high of $5.00. 20 for 1000000000 british double units. it's highest in more than 7 years. bought the equivalent gas in europe and asian markets costs $25.00 for $1000000.00 british thermal units. storage sites a less than 72 percent for that's the lowest in a decade or knock on effects. a huge cf industries holdings. one of the was biggest fertilize groups has been forced to close to plants in the u. k, sparking fears of a looming shortage of ammonium nitrate that could hip food supplies and
3:35 pm
a shortage of carbon dioxide production could hit the meat to soft drinks industry . what gas is also used a power electricity generation. unsurprisingly, price is a soaring in that market to several energy suppliers have already collapsed in the u. k. governments across europe preparing to hand up money to households the cup of the higher winter energy bills. still consumer groups of warning, but the most vulnerable could be hit with fuel poverty this winter. according to european think tank rugle, a doubling of wholesale electricity prices from about 50 euros per megawatt hour to $100.00. euro's would imply that the u. consumers pay up to 150000000000 euros more for the electricity that's adding to inflation repressions in the euro zone. according to capital economics, since the beginning of the year, the rise of gas and electricity is that it half a percentage point to headline inflation. will some of the blame for the gas
3:36 pm
shortfall in europe has been put on wash up? it's sending less gas via its pipelines through ukraine, but russia could open its new, controversial nord stream to gas pipeline. the pipeline connecting russia to germany has been opposed by the united states, but german regulators have said it could take 4 months to certify the recently completed project. while to discuss all of this, let's bring in simone a talia pietro. a senior fellow at the brutal think tank where he research as you climate an energy policy. he joins us now via skype from rone. somebody good to have you with us. so what's behind this rise in gas prices then how much of this has to do with europe failing to philip? it's gas reserves. thank you. well, in europe today, find a perfect storm as far as nature and got the market concert. what could go wrong over the last month went wrong. on the demand side, we had
3:37 pm
a bad cold winter which pushed the residential eating demand for gas. at the same time, we had an economic recovery, of course, in europe, and therefore the industrial demand for got when hired at the same time, god was also more and more requested for electricity generation. i got about to think on the one hand c o 2 prices in europe when top favoring a cold to gas switch. and at the same time, the output of wind was particularly low due to a very poor. we can all be increased demand in europe at the same time. we have problems on the supply because the european domestic production, decreasing norway has had some problems. and russia is not sending all the molecules. europe would actually need, as i was up to asian started just let us in europe are lower venue in
3:38 pm
these period of the year high of the new winter season and lot of concern for the traders because people now expect a potential gas crunch in the winter should be bad. no, you're also arguing that the way in which the european gas market is structured is, is also a fault here. weinstat. well, over the last years, the european gas market at become more modern, let's say it moved from a traditional structure of oil indexation in gas contract to a spot market. 80 percent of the european got to be traded on the spot market disease. of course, giving great flexibility to the market is a good thing, but in this particular condition,
3:39 pm
if for their adding pressure on the situation, because europe is not the longer the work, asia is demanding a lot of n and g and the economic recovery. these also have been in asia and therefore europe as to pay more and more for the gas it was to get. and the 2nd suppliers, like russia, for example, talk about their willingness of favoring a market. given that the price that there are even higher than in europe. all right, sir, if not stream to were to come online anytime soon with that, help alleviate the problem. that the political point, because all the situation happens at the time, we're not getting to as being billed. and roger is waiting for the certificate ations to start using it. the kremlin said that should not dream to be allowed to operate immediately. the gas prices in europe will go down these
3:40 pm
the paving, the way for reflection about the weather. russia is using the current situation to foster the cave for a quick entry into operation not, not going to. so the question is, russia, you will be in a political manner in order to remember the euro that got important that russia got it important and not them to is important because it seems to be the case. and as a matter of fact, earlier this week, the international energy agency made a statement in which it clearly said the trash can do more to supply europe through the existing operating by brand. which by the way, you're not looking at the capacity many expected to for the ground in october, and therefore it's high moment for russia to show that that reliable supplier to europe. and if we look at prices across the content as above, why other u. kays,
3:41 pm
gas, and electricity prices, the highest, the u. k. situation is but the clarity difficult in these moments for a number of different factors. for 50 percent of the electricity you generated with gas and that, or the system is but the currently at the what happens in the gas prices 2nd aging fleet of nuclear power plant in the u. k. and the theories of plan old, the just you to the need of providing maintenance that was not 14, i'm being pressure on gas demand for electricity generation. 3rd and the interconnect are supplying electricity from france to the u. k. got some fire and therefore was interrupted. so all of these factors added to the fact
3:42 pm
that the wind speeds in the u. k. have been the lowest disease on since the 16th made it way, particularly difficult in the country. so how should governments protect their citizens from higher energy prices can can, how long can they do that for and how is this go to affect poor nations? in particular? first of all, we need to take into consideration one fact these, these, them for any crisis. if you look at the market, and if you look at the future, for example, at the dot got hub, which is the most important in europe, you will see that trade has to be think that after the winter, so in the spring 2022 prices will go down to the normal levels. so here we have an issue with that coming for 56 months. how boy, end of the winter,
3:43 pm
that the question, what the country, what government can and should do is to put the blade mechanism to protect the multiple m a t p. then, and more me, humans, the prices for the price shock. this is what the product sample from been doing, expanding the name of energy vouchers. disease lot, italy now is doing by cutting certain costs in the electricity and got beatles for gas commerce, families and mon, you meant their prices. and these or the other countries are also doing it is important that these point to protect the most vulnerable to protect your mentor prices, but then not to interfere in the market mechanism because the market will keep working properly afterwards. so be the best way to ends of the crises. the long term fix for the situation is different. easy to scale up investments and rolling
3:44 pm
out of renewable energy sources and energy efficiency solutions. summary, it's been great to talk to you on kerry because manufacturing day for being with us . thank you so much. the a community in ecuador has been trying to resist the advance of mining companies. residents from la metro's fed and why does not as a pushing for it to be stopped, but the countries cash strapped government is backing. the firms surveys bow reports. lemme said they went aside as he says, mold perish in the middle of the end, this mountains in a while or yeah, residents, you have been struggling to defend the community for mining and the damages causes for years. the. now there are posing the entry of a subsidy area of the australian company hancock, prospecting. a firm that has 6 mining concessions in the area to extract copper. the police were recently deployed last year. we had to protect your operations,

3:46 pm
but now with established companies trying to legally enter the territory again. franklin romito is concerned. but on the 3rd of last month, tanya, of for us, the mountains, the water is everything is our mother is how we can survive. the government is giving all the facilities for the company to come here and destroy the area. nobody asked us whether we want this, the government concession to the company. the question via reported by the controller general of the state environmental group say it was constitution is being violated. and i felt, i mean, when i went into the state is violating the rights of the people to guarantee the work of trans national companies. the state has failed in the past because of the legal mining crisis with him. now they want to bring legal mining, but they are doing it with no previous consultation as the constitution demands precedent because they are more left. so has created an action plan to promote legal mining. and it's hoping to exploit over 2900000 hector's in the country.
3:47 pm
while others mining chambers says dialogue is the only way out of the crisis. yoko can look, see, there is no industrial in the world that is born without those 1st pains. i believe the future of the countries in mining, i believe we have to care for the environment, would be also need minerals. the best way to stop the legal mining is to promote legal and responsible mining. but let me say they went aside, is people are afraid, they believe their territory will be destroyed and their interests will be ignored . once again, that is, i will, i'll defeat the fast moving world of crypto currency. it may surprise you to learn that the fastest take camp is in emerging economies, and we're not talking about speculation here, but for everyday transactions and savings. these are the top 20 adopters of crypto currency according to chain analysis. it's an interesting study because it strips out trading and speculation and as you can see, the nom tops the ranking with india and pakistan. rounding out the top 3 rough

galveston is popping up the table 7th on that list. is that his whale up? that's because the local currency has been made effectively worthless by hyper inflation. now the government has come up with a plan to try to fix it. his latin america as a lucille human just like you can't judge a book by its cover, you can't calculate the value of in israel as currency by the number of zeros that are added or subtracted as of october. first, this 100 boulevard of note will be the highest denomination equivalent to today's 100000000 boulevard. note, that means 6 zeros will be removed from a currency that has been sold to valued by hyperinflation. that it's become practically worthless. comments. i thought this is only for the bus for the ball of us. now i run a useful for public transport or nothing else. everything else is paid with us dollars. when his, when his currency costs much more to make than what it's worth,
3:49 pm
inflation in the 1st 4 months of this year was nearly 300 percent. and last year it was 3000 percent. that's why the country's de facto currency has become the us dollar. but millions of venezuelans don't have access to it by slashing sick zeros off its currency. the government hopes to reinstate the widespread use of its own coin, penis will bring back home and it has certain advantages. but these advantages don't generate benefits from a strictly economic point. of view, that would require a series of measures to control inflation to avoid more recon versions of the currency. the socialist government slashed 3 zeros from its currency in 2008 and 5 zero's 2018. so did he look, he is not optimistic that 6 will do the trick. when i look at it, this is going to become what it's already become. as all the currents is here, because they have all become worth the saw, it is way, le,

e currency. joining us from lagos is about me, michael, chief executive of the asset and equity group. good to have with us on counting the cost of a me. why has that been such a strong stake? take up of crypt, currencies in emerging markets in particular compared to established markets. nyja is leading in terms of adoption. well, so, but then the adding that the regulators average i didn't quit. so generally the control ok, regulatory wants to regulate. but then crypto does not really have so much ways around regulation. so you know, it's more of a cut on dog kind of situation. so it's put on old right now. not like the entirely out of the market or not. that is, it's entirely not in use at all in i junior, but people still won't find out we are using to to but then officially it puts on old around. so nigeria plans to launch its own e currency. how,
3:53 pm
how do they differ from electronic payments that we're currently making is going to be deny, rob mean said by the central bank of nigeria directly. so the major difference between the 2 d, on the electronic demand system that we already are going to country, is that the one that follows the route will be managed directly by the center of the center will be in charge of reducing mean chain and distribution of ira, i think, guess, situation where most payment systems are managed, controlled on more or less money thought by license payment system switches operate those within the niger economy. and do you think the people of nigeria will actually embrace enough as their means of savings and transactions? oh, they just got to continue to use the centralized script of currencies. why do people
3:54 pm
love decentralized currency in the 1st day? so people are shown i've demonstrated to be much more interested in anonymity. in less disclosure, not, i've been to go through too much verification or too much restrict shows as to when payment is about is to be initiated. so i see a little bit of some level of a locked in. i mean use our adoption. but then it's the government when the government into law, the law. and you know, i listen to one of the died the payment odyssey be in send out a conference saying it's will be my duty for anyone to accept the you know, because the app is just as much as your normal traditional and i knew there was to be some level of resistance because people don't want to disclose so much.

transportation of cars. they're all these are called suited with money, which when you mean it'd all, it's which, where reduce of cause. we were trying to live to reduction in middle cost to use as a customer of bands. and what can i do shows. so generally the cost comes down to go see in printed on, off call, or the benefits you know, the currency my out on the financial system, for instance, now just leading to game economy. see right now that job will be the 1st african, honestly, i mean african country to issue the current. i believe very soon john, i issued the us. so i believe is gonna add the current currency to be easy. point i juwan to trade. we think i, ma'am,
