is connected to an ideology of endless consumption and that is incompatible with what our planet can take and so we need a different economic paradigm for this much needed change the renowned intellectual uses a phrase heard a lot these days the green new deal refers to reforms implemented by former us president franklin d. roosevelt a series of strategies that managed to overcome the great depression in the 1930 s. strategies of the green new deal could include investing in jobs agriculture public housing national parks and museums when he talked about the depression he wasn't only talking about the economy being depressed but also people were to press right so how do you lift up the people spirit and part of that was need access to nature and part of that was access to the arts. and also have a kate's improve. community spirit and the strongest social safety net she says

many environmental policies the lower class the hardest for example in france where fuel tax rises sparked weeks of violent protests along with the climate crisis the social pressure increases clients and populists benefit from that their answer to the crisis being racial and seclusion. i think every human on this planet on some level is aware that our home is in crisis that something is not right in our world that breakdown in within the living systems that support life on earth creates feelings of panic and because we don't have policies on the table that are really solving the problem it creates a very flammable political environment where these figures can come in and pick populations against each other it's time to take to the streets again the climate conference in madrid won't magically solve the crisis and still hopeful she sees

a chance for a green new deal a real one that deserves the name we just need to be brave enough to look into our green future. clint eastwood obviously has no intention of retiring now $89.00 he's directed an average of one movie a year since he turned 80 his latest is richard jewel the true story of a terrible miscarriage of justice richard jewel was a security guard who discovered a bomb lympics back in 9096 and having raised the alarm and saved lives he was later accused of planting the bomb. when he finds suspicious package at centennial park richard jewel plays the hero out of town of greensburg back for richard crazy. crazy. he's not wrong. his quick thinking saves hundreds of lives but the media thinks richard
12:49 am
jewel looks more like a dangerous loner goal fits the profile of the lone bomber a frustrated white man who is a police want to be who seeks to become a hero players a former trainer or 32 can play. the f.b.i. to try to pin the chronic one joule. cut. is very important. they catch somebody so they just got somebody new just grabs richard drew. clint eastwood's portrait of an ordinary american hero is brought to life by actor paul walter hauser in a role he was born to play. guys were trying to argue what a man who is convicted in the press before the age of social media script we don't lead on this story what are we doing here ok we're running it turned into until the end jewel believes in the system and they took my babies my disney movie.
12:50 am
they did it because they want to see if we mount a record of. a political statement so. i do you keep defending these people. just explained well so be it richard jewel was painted with a very unfair brush stroke or 2 or 3. and because of that people never acknowledged his humanity this film. is a q.b. swigs taught tale of a miscarriage of justice feels all too perfect and is certain to provoke discussion and debate long after the fun real. boman soon to new and pork you have 30 minutes . and with me now is the author of that report and a man who swears hat the world premiere along with a lot of other journalists in los angeles scott wrote so scott what was it like to
12:51 am
feel so basic i mean just to be in the presence of a clint eastwood of course he's a living legend as you mentioned 89 not slowing down i mean this is his 3rd film in 2 years it's incredible and i think it's probably his best film since probably american sniper what i always love about clint eastwood is what a clear structured sense as to his his dose is always very clear what he wants to show what he wants to tell i mean i think law the best parts of this movie are when he takes the f.b.i.'s k. . against richard jewel and sort of odd rivals it piece by piece we saw that the scene the end of the piece where the f.b.i. gets richard jewel to they trick him basically to repeat the real bombers 911 call i also picked out another scene from the film that shows sort of how precise director clint eastwood is and in this in the film the richard jewel's lawyer is going over some of the facts the case when he realizes that his client really is innocent let's take a look we also know that richard was inside the park near the santa light hour at
12:52 am
$1257.00 and bill miller called the backpack and he would have to cover that distance in one minute. i mention. here on average one for me. i mean how does he do it yeah i mean he's incredibly fast and how he works i mean it helps that he always use the same camera man the same crew so well oiled machine they know what they're doing but also is famous for never doing more than one take he sets up the shot gets all the actors know what they want to make sure they know the lines does one take gets what he needs and moves on so the actors have to go. now as you know there's been some criticism about how one of the journalists in the movie was portrayed take us through that this is the journalist who's patrolled by libya wild in the film is based on a real journalist who is
12:53 am
a lantern newspaper reporter and she was the one who originally broke the story that the f.b.i. was looking into richard jewel as a suspect in the bombing now all that's true that's not debated but in the way that you would portray as this journalist he seems to suggest that she traded sex for information some of her with some of her sources now there's 0 evidence for that and the the newspaper newspaper has threatened to sue warner brothers the makers of the movie for the unfair. picture i have to say what if the fact of the case are the trail of the journalist in this film is the weakest bit of the film it's the only point where eastwood sort of slips into lazy caricature and in some ways it's kind of ironic because his whole message with this movie is not to judge people based on on appearances and he seems to be doing this in the case of this this character and this approach film wants that yeah i kind of dismiss that argument i think it has to do with the fact that we're judging everything based on what
12:54 am
can't people are in and people put clint eastwood in the conservative camp and judge just as proton film i don't see it that way i see it as a really well done movie about an unsung american hero and a warning to not judge based on appearances to not jump to just scott was always very much and we hope that mr eastwood is perhaps nominated with this movie maybe maybe and keeps going with safe sex anyway. gov and a kind of wood carving that 2 years ago was listed as an intangible world heritage by unesco which is trying to preserve and keep traditional skills around the world live and this particular wood carving craft has been combined with modern design by a company called santa at creating completely new furniture which is proving very popular with discerning clients. this method of wood carving by hand is an age old craft. but the pieces in this workshop in conyers and mark antiques and luxury
