continuing a 50 year nasa mission observing important changes on earth. a very warm welcome to this special edition of outside source. while have all the latest on the uk plus muscular shortages at metro stations plus that special nasa rocket launch but first of all it is because of it to braden because miles atkins has the latest on a gripping german election. thank you very much. it is the evening of the night before here in germany as we picked cereal and extraordinary election result. let us bear in mind for things as we consider it. the social democrats on top, they have not come top in a german election since 2002. that is a significant result for them. they knew that at the cdu and its party
7:03 pm
the csu and that is anger in america's party as well. it's recorded its worst result in decades but it is still a close second. been bearin but it is still a close second. been bear in mind both the breeze are claiming they have the right to form a coalition government and they are busy setting about how to do that and that's the fourth thing we should bear in mind. neither of them can't do it alone because they will have to cut gales with other rival parties in order to get 50%. only mandated that can be funny collation and you need a coalition if you are going to be chancellor. with all of that in mind let us have a look at the results of the german election. this is how we think it is going to look. you can see social democrats just in the lead on 206 seats. ten behind. you have got the union and the csu. just as relevant in the collation calculations are there greens at 118 and a free market liberals at 92. a couple of other
7:04 pm
things to bear in mind. the alternative for germany, 83, another strong showing, a bit down since the last election. they are not going to be in government and the far left had a tough night. they are down 39 feet. they don't affect a major factor in what kind of government germany will end up with. so, the two main candidates for chancellor would have to talk across these parties particularly the third and fourth place party. that is here from one of those then who make all those phone calls. here is a cloud off of the spv. for those phone calls. here is a cloud off of the sw— off of the spv. for us it is quite clear that _ off of the spv. for us it is quite clear that a _ off of the spv. for us it is quite clear that a monday _ off of the spv. for us it is quite clear that a monday must - off of the spv. for us it is quite clear that a monday must be i off of the spv. for us it is quite | clear that a monday must be dry off of the spv. for us it is quite - clear that a monday must be dry from this election and we are now endeavoring to form a government that one the election and that is the spv and the very considerable in both. let the spv and the very considerable in both. , , �* , ., both. let us remember, it's not about who _ both. let us remember, it's not about who comes _ both. let us remember, it's not about who comes top, - both. let us remember, it's not about who comes top, it's - both. let us remember, it's not| about who comes top, it's about both. let us remember, it's not - about who comes top, it's about who can get 50% and that center—right
7:05 pm
cdu, the christian democrats led rs they're making their case they should form a government. no party can derive a clear monday to govern from this result including us and be spv. is it a moment for that big parties to step in front of the boat or with humidity and admit those big parties with usually more than 30% of the votes have not reached this goal this time. so a reference to _ reached this goal this time. so a reference to the _ reached this goal this time. so a reference to the free _ reached this goal this time. so a reference to the free market liberals of the fdp. he will hear from them in a moment but first of all that to the greens. they came third. this is their colleagues. it third. this is their colleagues. it has become clear that the spv is in the lead. we have that provision no official results. this naturally means that talks with the spd and the fdp will take precedence. so there greens and centerleft may have
7:06 pm
a lot of common ground. you cannot really say the same for the free market liberals. they are not natural allies of those on the centerleft of the german political spectrum. for example, the greens a very considerable increase spending to address climate change and the fdp is much more conservative in its approach to both taxing and spending. here is the leader of the fdp. we spending. here is the leader of the fdp. . ., . ., spending. here is the leader of the fdp. ~ ., . ., ., ., fdp. we have decided that we want to launch talks with _ fdp. we have decided that we want to launch talks with the _ fdp. we have decided that we want to launch talks with the greens. - fdp. we have decided that we want to launch talks with the greens. the - launch talks with the greens. the biggest _ launch talks with the greens. the biggest policy differences are between the fdp and the greens and theta— between the fdp and the greens and that's why— between the fdp and the greens and that's why it makes sense given that polarization to try to find common ground~ _ polarization to try to find common ground~ lot— polarization to try to find common round. ., , , ., ~ ., , ground. let that speak to the budget spokesoerson _ ground. let that speak to the budget spokesoerson for _ ground. let that speak to the budget spokesperson for the _ ground. let that speak to the budget spokesperson for the fdp _ ground. let that speak to the budget spokesperson for the fdp here - ground. let that speak to the budget spokesperson for the fdp here with i spokesperson for the fdp here with us on outside source and burning. thank you for your time. you do not have that much common ground with the queen so what is your price for choosing to work with them and the social democrats? thtt

choosing to work with them and the social democrats?— choosing to work with them and the social democrats? at least to get as much of your— social democrats? at least to get as much of your programme _ social democrats? at least to get as much of your programme through i social democrats? at least to get as much of your programme through in i social democrats? at least to get as i much of your programme through in a collation treaty. that is what politics is about. it's about content for the next four years, where you can find compromises, where you can find compromises, where at the end you can say this is worth it to go into that collation. do you accept the argument that your party has done well and they have increased their vote. that party has done well and they have increased their vote.— increased their vote. that is if olitics increased their vote. that is if politics is _ increased their vote. that is if politics is only _ increased their vote. that is if politics is only pure _ increased their vote. that is if politics is only pure logic. - increased their vote. that is if politics is only pure logic. but| politics is only pure logic. but everybody knows that is not true. at the end it is about content and trust. is it possible to do more with the christian democrats. that will be the question for next week. the greens are very focused on climate change. they're both pushing and

7:10 pm
don't see social democrats or greens or christian democrats breaking the constitution and that means if you want to shift, shift in standing. it want to shift, shift in standing. it back to the last election. the grand coalition. the two big parties working together was not the outcome people expected or wanted. it's what germany ended up with because your leader pull the plug on the negotiations and walked away and said i am not cutting a deal. are the fdp serious about going into governing this time?— the fdp serious about going into governing this time? yes, but again onl if it's governing this time? yes, but again only if it's a — governing this time? yes, but again only if it's a deal. _ governing this time? yes, but again only if it's a deal. we _ governing this time? yes, but again only if it's a deal. we said _ governing this time? yes, but again only if it's a deal. we said that - only if it's a deal. we said that was the conservatives and the greens had to deal with them self to say no chance of having this. heidi interested in being in government? no, this is a typical question. you really think a politician should say hopefully and in government i have my nice car and i'm a minister and later had a right nice books about me, it's about content and maybe you saw things and whether you do things and those things that you are saying are right and this is what politics is. ., , , ., ., ~ is. not 'ust be in government. thank ou for is. notjust be in government. thank you forjoining _ is. notjust be in government. thank

7:12 pm
there greens end up going in the centerleft or center—right, it makes things more complicated and is already relationship. the greens might have to drive the liberals into it as well. this is going to be difficult. not love at first sight. the liberals are little attacks a little spending and the greens are high tax hike spending to front theirfight against time high tax hike spending to front their fight against time page. it high tax hike spending to front theirfight against time page. it is difficult match but they will keep swiping and keep talking and keep dating. so we are looking at three different parties. this is burning. things can get pretty modern. wherever you are watching in the world the reason these negotiations matter is they will impact the kind of government germany has an germany in one of the most influential countries in the world so is decisions impact all of us in different ways. let us speak to someone who worked with angela merkel in past campaigns and runs a political advisor company and ease david is here. you just heard our interview. what do you make of the

all of that and more coming up here on outside source. we have seen a significant drop in temperatures today. in many respects temperatures today. in many respects temperatures have been dropping because the average by the time of year. the drop has been large. it's all being brought by the stare of cloudiness. the cold front is moving across the country earlier in the day. what has followed his fresh air. temperatures yesterday and that was one of the warmest place is at 23 degrees. this afternoon the temperatures have been around 11 celsius. the rule of thumb, the friday night and less you have been depicted they drop in temperatures. on the radar we can see plenty of shower activity following the band of rain across northern scotland. they will continue to easily at least the band of rain across northern scotland. they will continue to easily at least decent weather for spotting a rainbow or

two in the sky. overnight the chalets will continue to be brought in by the southwest winds. it will be frequent for west end scotland and northern ireland although for whales in the southwest. dry weather across inland areas and with clear skies it will be a cold night that we have been used to for a number of nights with temperatures getting down into the southwest. dry weather across inland areas and with clear skies it will be a cold night and we have been used to for a number of nights with temperatures getting down into single figures. on tuesday we have more unsettled weather on the way and outbreaks of rain will spread into western areas of england before pushing east and not reaching the east until really late in the day. forwestern the east until really late in the day. for western scotland and northern ireland they will be bright leather and a mix of sunshine and showers and temperatures of 1a or 17 celsius. not quite close to average. some gusty winds and clearing for doing tuesday night and then we get a switch of high pressure building info wednesday and that means wednesday should be a day with increasingly dry weather and increasingly dry weather and increasing amounts of sunshine. the exception for that is northern area — northern areas on the west coast of scotland i'm down into the gap in
7:28 pm
areas like merseyside and cheshire and north wales will continue to see showers both morning and afternoon. otherwise lots of dry weather to be found. there is day to another area of low pressure coming in bringing more rain and the rain will be at its heaviest and most persistent across england and wales and again further north and rest for northern ireland and scotland might see the rain clearing at least for a time with some bright leather and more rain returning to northern ireland later in the day. temperatures will be 15 through 16 celsius across the country.

7:33 pm
predictable and one was new. the predictable part is we are into coalition associations. it's governments have been made up of coalitions. politicians are used to it and germans are used to this. while in some democracies, you have the campaign and the result and that's it, it's normal in germany to enter a period of negotiations. that's where we are. the thing that is new is that it's not normal for the two biggest parties in german politics to both be around the 25% mark. that is what one person has called identification of german politics. we're seeing more parties doing better, and that's impacting on the domination of the two traditional biggest parties. there are lots of people in the mixed who will all be relevant. one of them is the green party. they had one of their best ever results. this is one of its members of.—

7:38 pm
what kind of commitments can germany make when there's a caretaker leader rather than the new the electoral chancellor? the short—term pressures are for a coalition government to be formed. let's get a green perspective. thomas is the head of the greens in the area. thank you forjoining us on bbc news. i wonder what your most desirable coalition is. ~ , .,, what your most desirable coalition is. y .,, , ., , what your most desirable coalition is. my most desirable coalition is a climate government _ is. my most desirable coalition is a climate government that _ is. my most desirable coalition is a climate government that really i is. my most desirable coalition is a | climate government that really puts climate government that really puts climate at the forefront of all the government's decisions. that is ending, investing into renewables and changing our transport system. we have started and it looks like we are talking to the liberals, and thenjoining talks with are talking to the liberals, and then joining talks with the social democratic party. but

7:41 pm
thomas, thank you very much indeed. thomas, thank you very much indeed. thomas leads the greens in bavaria. a reminder if there any more details you want on this election, there is a feast of the material on the bbc news website to help you understand what happened. of course, you can find that/ news. we will be back with you at the end of the programme, so don't go away. still to come, we will be looking at nassau's launch of the latest generation of its satellite. — nasa. new research has highlighted a stark difference in how climate change will hit rich and poor as the bbc�*s
7:42 pm
population reporter has been finding out. the richest half of the world are responsible for 86% of greenhouse gas emissions, and the poorest half forjust 11t%. but people everywhere will be worst hit by the climate change but poorer people everywhere will be worst hit by the climate change caused by those emissions, for lots of reasons — and some of them, not that obvious — like extreme heat. everything is exposed, the sun is beating down directly on you and it is unbearable. on you and it's unbearable. during thejune heat wave in the us, scientists found that streets in poor areas where up to 3 to 10 celsius hotter because of too much asphalt,
7:43 pm
concrete, and the lack of trees. trees are life. the role they play in our ecosystem cannot be overstated. yvonne is the mayor of freetown, and has plans to plant 1,000,000 trees in the city. trees create shade and plants pull moisture up from the ground which has a cooling effect. peaople in areas with less vegetation have a 5% higher chance people in areas with less vegetation have a 5% higher chance of dying of heat—related causes. researchers at the university of brussels found children born in high—income countries will see twice as many extreme weather events as their grandparents did, but for children in low—income countries, it will be worse — they will see three times as many, and eight times as many heat waves. two thirds of children born today are born in these countries.
7:44 pm
welcome back to outside source. we will be back in berlin very shortly, but let's turn to afghanistan. some of the fiercest fighting during the 20 years of war was that hell man province. this is the area where the taliban has been most established — helmand. no one's future is secure in this country. especially as girls. only the under 12 have been allowed back. the taliban says older girls will return too. many don't believe them,
7:45 pm
including people in this town who did not want to be found. taliban rules on girls are seen as a big test by foreign countries, and could help afghanistan. this school was rated one of the best in the country by the british council. the taliban says education will now follow islamic sharia law. all the boys are back at their desks. the head says be patient, the older girls will come back.
7:46 pm
do you think girls education is safe under the taliban? helmand is in the taliban heartland. it offers clues about the way they want afghanistan to go. they're still euphoric about victory. the last time the taliban seized the country, they use ruthless violence to impose their religious and cultural beliefs. they're not putting down their guns, but this time, the leaders are arguing about power and the best way to keep it. the governor of helmand said older girls would go back to school when more religions were in the curriculum. islamic law as their guide. a lot of women have become educated in the last 20 years. what if they don't want to learn in that way?
7:47 pm
you fought against the so british when they were here, what do you think about what they did? the west would be welcomed back if they came in peace to help the people. he said, "you've made them suffer enough." the allies came into afghanistan in 2001 with a clear
7:48 pm
enough mission — to destroy al-qaeda and punish the taliban for harbouring them. it's what happened next that's harder to understand and to next that�*s harder to understand and to justify— next that's harder to understand and to justify— a war that couldn't be won, that cut across all the hopes they said they had to make afghanistan into a better place. the troops if and afghanistan were told they were fighting to make their families safer at home and to help afghans build a nation that would never again be a haven for groups like al-qaeda. one of the biggest battles was in helmand in 2010, in the cotton and opium fields. cultures collided. you can see their fear as british troops took over their home. the plan, victory, turned into grinding guerrilla warfare. after three months, the us commander called this a bleeding
7:49 pm
ulcer. the war ebbed and flowed across it until the end. now it's over, this man went back to the war damaged home he's too poor to repair. his brother, who planted the tree, was killed fighting for the taliban. this country is enveloped by past loss, and for this man's mother, anger and grief. two more of her sons were forced into the afghan army and died fighting. a fourth was killed in the air strikes. they said they were here to make a better afghanistan for women as
7:50 pm
well. why did your sonjoin why did your son join the taliban? and nascar god, you can see the forces that are shaking afghanistan. the power of religion in the tribe to dominate the south. the humanitarian crisis that might force concessions to women to — lashkar gah. afghanistan has changed. it's harder now to bend and break the country. jeremy bowen, bbc news, helmand.

let me bring you some pictures that have come into the bbc news room and just the past hour from nasa and california. it's carrying some rather special cargo. it's a satellite that will observe earth from orbit. this is the latest in a series of missions going back almost 50 years. no other satellite has kept a longer continuous record of the changing state of our planet. jonathan amo �*s has more. tt the changing state of our planet. jonathan amo 's has more. if you want to track— jonathan amo 's has more. if you want to track change _ jonathan amo 's has more. if you want to track change and - jonathan amo 's has more. if you want to track change and pull- jonathan amo 's has more. if you want to track change and pull out real trends. about the climate of what is happening to it, you need a long data set. decades long. minimum 30 years to be able to identify what's really going on. from one year to the next, just could be an
7:52 pm
anomaly that year. but over several decades, there is no doubt about what is happening. and this is what landsat is about. it was first launched in 1972 as a joint programme between the us space agency and you like us walter ve. it was called the orth resources technology. subsequent missions were all renamed and we have the lights going up this evening. really, it is that long time. there are satellites up that long time. there are satellites up there now. you can see the earth much sharper, but none can boast the longevity, the time series that landsat has given us. jonathan amo 's there. before _ landsat has given us. jonathan amo 's there. before we _ landsat has given us. jonathan amo 's there. before we go, _ landsat has given us. jonathan amo 's there. before we go, let's - landsat has given us. jonathan amo 's there. before we go, let's cross i �*s there. before we go, let's cross over to berlin. we know this was always going to be a historic election with the outgoing chancellor. but this has been a

7:54 pm
predictable. but angela merkel was like a stopper in a bottle, lots of votes came in because of her. now that she's leaving after 16 years, the stopper came off, a lot of those votes went out. in a country that is very used to coalition building. while it's doing that, angela merkel has had to put her retirement plans on ice. she didn't look very happy today. that will keep that stability going. t today. that will keep that stability ttoin. ., , going. i found it interesting, before it came _ going. i found it interesting, before it came here - going. i found it interesting, before it came here about i going. i found it interesting, l before it came here about how going. i found it interesting, - before it came here about how there were new parties for german voters. i looked at the result and i was thinking, maybe every shift of their priorities as much as some people were saying. t priorities as much as some people were saying-— were saying. i think there's two thints. were saying. i think there's two things- first. — were saying. i think there's two things. first, take _ were saying. i think there's two things. first, take on _ were saying. i think there's two things. first, take on board i were saying. i think there's two | things. first, take on board that every mainstream party said they wanted to do something about the environment. they all said. i think if you are concerned about the

environment, think about the floods this summer in germany, but i think if you are more of a conservative voter... and the same as the social democrats, the votes didn't have to go to the greens, and i think their leader really failed to persuade voters. i think that's what's happened with the green party and why it didn't do as well. but i think that priority buys, there was a desire for change, but we've come back to stability, continuity since the end of the second world war. this has changed with... .- this has changed with... . as one commentator _ this has changed with... . as one commentator put _ this has changed with... . as one commentator put it, _ this has changed with. .. . as one commentator put it, our- this has changed with... . as one i commentator put it, our germans is still being germans? our europe editor at bbc news, ending this addition of outside source. live from berlin, from kacia madera and be, thank you very much indeed for
