it's causing sea level to go up, acidifying the ocean it affects everything that we experience now >> you've said recently that these disasters had you wondering if the climate models on which we've all been relying are wrong. what did you mean by that? >> you know, i think in you described to me what's going on a few months ago i would have said you're crazy. >> just a few months ago >> it sounds like dystopian sci-fi novel you look at the northwest heat wave that is far greater than anything the models predicted. maybe that's just an unlucky event. i think the models do an excellent job on the global climate but as far as predicting events, it looks like things are going to be worse. for decades, people called climate scientists alarmists in the future that's going to be a sad commentary on inaction in
12:07 am
the face of really strong science. >> to that point, if the models are indeed not capturing how bad this could get, are our cities prepared >> yeah, you know, i think the, regard loss of the extent to which climate change is affecting these events, the most important lesson is that this is just a small preview of what's coming and our infrastructure is clearly not capable of handling this you look at the heat wave in the pacific northwest, the floods in china and europe, and if we don't stop climate change from warming. if we don't take action to head this up, it's going to be an incredibly expensive, painful experience as we have to rebuild trillions of dollars of infrastructure to handle a world with heat waves, higher sea level, more intense heat >> thank you covid watch now. more local leaders are starting

12:13 am
that's professional grade from gmc. what's on the horizon? the answers lie beyond the roads we know. we recognize that energy demand is growing, and the world needs lower carbon solutions to keep up. at chevron, we're working to find new ways forward, like through our venture capital group. backing technologies like electric vehicle charging, carbon capture and even nuclear fusion. we may not know just what lies ahead, but it's only human... to search for it. p shootings. two simultaneous shootings in downtown milwaukee sent basketball fans running for cover late last night as they celebrated the bucks nba championship win they arrested two folks and are still searching for the other suspect.
12:14 am
the shootings, as the united states is on track to have the deadliest year of gun violence in decades in new york city, shootings are up about 22% from the same time last year and up more than 100% from the same time in 2019 according to nypd data but it's not just shootings. murders up by 3% from the same time last year and 38% from the year before. last week during a news conference on gun violence, the democratic mayor nominee in new york said quote, we have surrendered our city eric adams, now. the brooklyn borough president, former police captain himself. crime is up across the country, the city you've called new york city a place where lawlessness is the norm should you become our mayor, what do you plan to do about it on day one >> we want to really look at in
12:15 am
particular certain communities where we have normalized their lawlessness that you're seeing on so many different levels. it's just about being good neighbors again. how do we ensure that we deal with some of the quality of life issues that we're facing everything from the gun violence that you're seeing, really being generated by gangs in our city we want to use police precision, zero in on those gang members and partner with our local district attorneys so we can stop seeing this revolving door justice system where people make crimes with guns and are out the next day that is unacceptable and really hurts the quality of life in our city >> our city has problems like cities all over the country. one i know you're familiar with, washington square park i happened to live in that neighborhood during the pandemic a lot of homeless people started sleeping there, gangs ended up there. now there's a series of parties that spring up there with people from all over the city
12:16 am
it's fairly out of control as the city's admitted. but if you come in with a long arm and show these teams of people clearing people out, what's no good where's the nuance >> you're right, sometimes when people talk about using washington square park issue, it's just for the affluent new yorkers that live around the park, that is not true i walk around the park every day and i'm often there, and my son, as we walk through there, someone was injecting themselves with heroin right there in the park that is not what our parks should be made of. we should temporarily close down the park to do a massive cleaning then before closing the park down, for a period of time, two weeks, clean the park get it back in order. prior to doing that, we should go there on the ground, interact with people and give them the services they need those who are homeless, let's find housing for them, wraparound services. those who have drug users, let's
12:17 am
get those who deal with mental health illnesses and other issues that people are facing and give them the support. let's spend some time really giving the services in the park. close it down, clean it, and then reopen the park with a clear set of guidelines and rules. >> you've met with the president on gun violence, 376 shootings, mass shootings across the country this year alone. the gun violence problem, is there a wray to solve it in this country under the current political climate? >> yes, we have in america some of the finest law enforcement entities on the federal, state and city level what i shared with the president that we need to do the same thing we did when we saw the world trade center attacked with terror im. we need to do the same with guns and gangs. share information, zero in on it we have to be honest, we've ignored the handgun crisis that is predominantly in black, brown
12:18 am
and poor communities we went after assault weapons but did not deal with the handguns let's stop the flow, go after illegal dealers and zero in on gangs across our country, specifically in new york city. >> eric adams on crime in america. thank you. governor gavin newsom in california cracking down on crime at retail stores the governor signed a bill today. it would allow special task forces to focus on the problem the move comes after several viral videos that you probably saw showing people smashing store windows and shoplifting right in the middle of the day with how business owners are now responding >> reporter: in california, a pack of thieves flees with arms full of merchandise. in new york, moth another group strikes. this isn't candy bars.
12:19 am
this is hundreds of dollars in merchandise. >> what we're seeing is the growth of organized retail crime. they prey on vulnerable folks. they'll go to a juvenile, a homeless person. here's a hundred bucks, here's a list of things we need you to go in and steal they'll often return them form gift cards we filmed this open market where police said stolen items are offered up each morning. a report found that more than $700,000 per billion in sales is lost to this sort of theft less than a tenth of a percent doesn't sound like much, but in an industry where some items are sold at cost just to bring customers in, it's a big number. if you're a major national retailer facing a shoplifting epidemic, what do you do here in san francisco six target stores are going to try to reduce exposure by limiting operating hours. walgreen's blames this kind of
12:20 am
theft for closing 17 locations retailers report a 60% increase in dollars lost, due to reduced staff during the pandemic and low morale, new hands-off store policies and low penalties california raised the threshold for a felony charge from $250 to $950 >> some people calculate, i don't want to go over the $950 let me steal $949 worth of property >> reporter: that means stores need to be willing to detain someone. >> if it's a misdemeanor, that arrest has to be a private person's arrest. >> reporter: retailers keep low-cost items even under lock and key. customers are forced to buzz associates for every day items from toothpaste to the six pack of beer. is organized retail theft a big enough deal that it's going to
12:21 am
change stores. >> a lot of retails are considering closing or curtailing hours in a lot of different markets in large part because of theft something that may seem innocuous and harmless is not. it's scary, extremely expensive. and somebody all they got to do, i don't like this. i'm going to order somewhere else >> reporter: shep, industry experts tell me that retailers have in fact been experimenting with facial recognition systems and have used the technology to identify roving group of thieves. one experimental system gives you and i a choice as customers. we can buzz over an associate to open the case or scan our ow n feature n features into facial recognition. they are worried that surveilling their customers may drive customers away

speaker pelosi had vetoed two of house minority leader kevin mccarthy's picks for this committee, and mccarthy has threatened to withdraw all five of them, unless someone of them backs down, the commit setee is going to have to move forward with seven democrats and one republican the situation is that both parties are getting essentially a bit of what they want here democrats wanted to do serious investigations on the attack republicans have never been that enthusiastic about investigating that attack for the politically awkward fact that it was supporters of donald trump who ransacked the capitol. they can move on as mccarthy suggested, to investigating other things, things like antifa and those associated with the political left speaker pelosi's members have a

court that her situation was abusive and she wanted her dad's control over her life to end david henderson now, civil rights attorney, form he prosecutor, cnbc contributor lega legally, what sort of impact could this have? >> it's not going have much of an impact on britney's case, and honestly, britney doesn't need it the only reason she's able to get it rolling is the reason why. the name say it is all, freedom and right to emancipation. it's going to garner more information about who's in a conservatorship. people have the right to have a public guardian appointed and they have the right to have an independent caseworker evaluate what's going on. >> so not for britney but for others and for the future this could have a real impact >> it really could, shep
12:48 am
it's hard to think why people would rally around britney if it's just a case about a pop star it's more than that and it's sort of like choose your own adventure novel. >> go ahead. >> i was going to say maybe it's because many of us were in on it we read all the clips, read all about her life and laughed and talked about it or i used to host a newscast on another network and night after night we had a segment, america's brit brit tonight and we would lay it all out. in hindsight it's embarrassing you worry about people in this situation. how do you get out of it i don't understand it. >> that's a good point i think that's part of the reason why we have this act. if you look at britney's case, the only reason we knew about it at all is because it happened during the pandemic. if it hadn't been during the pandemic, we wouldn't have heard
