the british prime minister, boris johnson, urged world leaders today to be more ambitious in tackling climate change. >> we have to bridge the gap between where we are and where we need to be if we're going to cut emissions in half by 2030. and we need to pull out all of the stops if we're going to do what we came here to do. >> prime minister johnson admits the conference won't solve climate change on its own but he says he's optimistic the world can keep the rise of global temperatures below 2.7 degrees fahrenheit by the end of the decade that's the goal set at the paris agreement six years ago. meanwhile, the host nation of the climate summit facing harsh realities of climate change. scotland had record rainfall over the past few decades. that's damaging some of the country's biggest tourist attractions. cnbc's diana olick now with an international edition of her series of reports on rising risks. >> reporter: for 1,000 years,
edinburgh castle stood watch for social wars and revolutions. it is a testament to time itself but time may be running out. >> when we have extreme rainfall events that we haven't seen in our time, our lifetime or recorded history, then we're not actually even sure what might happen to some of these buildings. >> reporter: just this past july, a freak storm dumped more than a month's worth of rain on scotland in barely a day, doing serious damage to edinburgh castle. >> that had quite a significant effect in terms of damage to the structure and interiors. so we have been working really hard to remedy that. but we also need to start thinking about how we react in the future to an event like that, given those events are becoming more frequent. >> reporter: scotland's ten warmest years have all been in the last three decades, at least since they began tracking this in 1884. warmer temperatures caused heavier rains and intensity of daily extreme rainfall events
over edinburgh are expected to increase this could cause three to four times the annual normal damage to the area's historic castle. glassness castle stands on the edge of the sea, on the front lines of coastal erosion like the castle, the historic society is fixing an outer wall to protect it. while castles are part of scotland's identity, they're also invaluable to its economy. >> over a third of the people who come to scotland say they come specifically to see heritage sites and obviously that generates millions and billions of money for scotland. >> the scots love their castles and want to do anything they can to protect them from climate change but for some of the castles, at least, there's an argument to be made protecting the relics of the past may not be the best thing for scotland's future. because restoration is costly and some argue the money could be put to better use in making the scity itself greener and
resilient to climate change. >> the culture is dynamic, it's part about who we are and our community. we change as a society and sometimes we lose things but it's also about understanding that it's okay to lose things. >> reporter: for the news, i'm diana olick in edinburgh, scotland. thousands of our military members fought and died in america's longest war. now their friends and family are fighting for them, and a place to remember their sacrifice. but is it a losing battle? vaccinating young kids today the white house releasing new numbers. but is it enough to start doing away with mask wearing that's next, as we approach the bottom of the hour, and the top bottom of the hour, and the top of the news from cnbc. to make progress, we must keep taking steps forward. we believe the future of energy is lower carbon. and to get there, the world needs to reduce global emissions. at chevron, we're taking action. tying our executives' pay

i'm shepard smith on cnbc. it's the bottom of the hour, time for the top of the news a missing 14-year-old girl in new jersey, the search intensifies as her mother demands action ail em-baldwin and "rust" movie producers sued for the fatal shooting on set. the allegations of negligence and what the lawsuit claims they did wrong. but first, the race to vaccinate america's kids the white house estimates roughly 900,000 children ages 5 to 11 have now received their first covid shot top health officials call that a very strong start for the next phase of america's vaccination effort. >> parents and families across the country are breathing giant sighs of relief, and we're just getting started. we will continue to work with governors, local leaders, health care providers and others to build on this progress. >> the white house says around 700,000 more kids have appointments scheduled to get
vaccinated the cdc authorized pfizer's shot for 5 to 11-year-olds last week. nationwide, 28 million kids in that age group are now eligible for their first dose studies showed many parents say they're eager to get their children vaccinated, especially ahead of the holidays. but some experts warn demand could start to drop off in the coming weeks dr. ben gupta now, lung doctor, nbc news contributor and faculty member of the university of washington doctor, thank you. for months many have said this age group, 5 to 11, is key to ending the pandemic. well, that's happening so are we almost there at the end? >> good evening, shep. great to see you we're not there quite yet. 10,000 of our fellow citizens, shep, week over week, well into these coming winter months, are going to still die, we suspect, based on forecasts from the university of washington, from this virus so how we define the end of the pandemic probably is going to be
in terms of daily and weekly death tolls. we're not there yet. i suspect to all of your viewers out there, end of march 2022, once we're past cold and flu season and worse of covid, that's truly the light at the end of the tunnel. >> some school districts are starting to roll back the mask requirement. medically, is that the right move >> i think it's too early to start rolling it back at this moment and yet we need an off-ramp away from masks that's what people are craving, normalcy so we're at a place we need to think about that when you look dispassionately at the data, shep, here's what it says, that if you're without serious medical conditions, less than 65 and get a breakthrough illness, and you're that rare individual, you might not have a lot of illness, it's not a big deal and some research out of netherlands say if you test positive, the risk of transmission to an unvaccinated child at home is also extremely low. so that's what normalcy looks like, getting more of us vaccinated so vaccine
breakthrough illness is not a big deal that's what the end of this looks like we're headed there we're not quite there yet. >> we have researchers watching the data every place around the country every day, and what they're seeing in california is a bit concerning when you see what's happening there, what's your take to all of the rest of us? >> you know, this is what i will say, shep, there are spots where cases are climbing and yet there's no specific spot here where hospitals are overwhelmed at this moment i will say, 10,000 weekly deaths, week over week, across the country, we're still very much in this pandemic for the next three to four months. that's why we still need to remain vigilant, get the unvaccinated vaccinated and, shep, to your point earlier, for us as public health officials as messengers to remain credible with the american people, we need to be clear about what an off-ramp looks like. when can we start dawning off masks? when can we regain normalcy
truly? in my view that's march of 2022. but if we say we're going to lead with the science, we need to provide that rof yamp so people feel like they can trust us. >> one more thing, in the deep south, vaccination numbers are low. we all know that there's a different way of handling it down there different people handle this different ways but down south, it's going to be cold in another month or so and people are going to be indoors, vaccination rates are low. how worried are you about mississippi, louisiana and some others >> extremely worried, shep 80% of the deaths i keep citing that are going to accrue over the next four months will be happening in states like mississippi, alabama, georgia, states that have counties where vaccine rates, full vaccination rates are less than 50%. those are going to be the states that will get hard hit yet again. they got hard hit in july and august it will happen again december, january, february. >> talk to your doctor do what's right. dr. gupta, thank you you may have heard the nfl fined quarterback aaron rodgers and the green bay packers for
violating the league's covid safety rules the league investigated the packers after aaron rodgers tested positive for covid last week the nfl fined aaron rodgers and wide receiver -- and a wide receiver nearly $15,000 each the investigation found teammates attended a halloween party, which violates protocol for unvaccinated players the league also fined the packers $300,000 for not disciplining the players after that party the team also did not require rodgers to wear a mask when speaking with reporters. that is a clear safety violation. in a statement, the packers president wrote -- we respect the league's findings and we recognize the importance of adherence to the protocols to keep our team and organization safe and healthy the penalties come less than a week after aaron rodgers made misleading comments about his vaccination status and said he was taking an unproven treatment for covid. "rust" crew members -- a
crew member who said he held the movie's cinematographer as she died on that set is suing the film producers and alec baldwin. police say helene hutchins died after alec baldwin shot her with a gun during a rehearsal they say the film's assistant director announced cold gun before handing him the weapon. but the gun had a real bullet in it today the film's director of lighting, sergei spetnov, filed the first known lawsuit over that shooting. he alleged the bullet narrowly missed him, spraying fragments on his face. >> and just all over my face and also so loud, the sound, so loud i never heard this sound on a movie set. >> his lawyer said his client was close friends with hutchins. he said they worked on nine films together, and that svetnoy
only decided to work on the "rust" shoot because she asked him to do it in the lawsuit, he described setting up lighting about six or seven feet from alec baldwin after the bullet hit hutchins, he knelt with her and held her while she died he said he tried to save her, but he couldn't. today his lawyers said he's suing for damages to make sure it doesn't happen again. he said live ammo should never be allowed on a film set. >> for what purpose would it be there for when you have guns, real guns, and live ammunition, what is likely to happen someone's going to get killed. and when that happens, it's not acceptable for the producers and safety people to say, gee, we didn't know that could happen. we didn't know that would happen. >> the lawsuit also names the women in charged of weapons on the "rust" set her lawyers say they believe somebody was sabotaging and framing her.
svetnoy's lawyer called that unbelievable alec balding has said the shooting was an accident. an update on the story in kentucky we brought you last week a man is facing a kidnapping charge of aa girl in his car was able to signal for help using a hand sign she learned on tiktok. prosecutors are upgrading charges against 51-year-old james brick. this happened after the alleged kidnapper threatened to kill the 16-year-old girl's dog if she tried to escape. investigators say the guy drove the girl 140 miles away from her home in north carolina to kentucky, and it was there an alert driver recognized the happened sign she was flashing out the window and called 911. this is that hand signal palm out with thumb tucked and then trap your thumb with your fingers the sign spread on tiktok after the canadian woman's foundation created it for women to indicate they're at risk of abuse and

compromise the investigation if someone is moving in one direction, we want them to continue to move unimpeded so hopefully we can find them. >> reporter: a social media campaign is being launched with the reward jumping from $15,000 to $20,000 for the girl's safe return. >> this is strictly for information that will lead us to wherever miss moore is so we can bring her home safely to her family and kmungty. >> reporter: normally crimestoppers rewards come with a stip lake for an arrest and conviction but that's not happening in this case from east orange, new jersey, for the news, i'm sarah wallace. an update now on a major opioid case. the oklahoma supreme court yesterday reversed a landmark settlement with johnson & johnson worth $465 million the justices determined the company did not violate the public nuisance laws by overstating the benefits of its prescription painkiller and
downplaying the danger the case was the first state lawsuit against an opioids manufacturer to actually come to trial. legal experts say the ruling is a major setback for those who are trying to hold the big drugmakers accountable for the opioid epidemic. a federal judge in michigan just approved a $626 million settlement for thousands of people exposed to lead-painted water in flint, michigan most of the money set to come from the state flint's water crisis began back in 2014. the city switched its water supply to cut costs, but it ended up causing lead to leak from pipes it contaminated the water, sparked a deadly outbreak of legionnaires' disease. the settlement earmarks money for every child in flint who was exposed to the water, every adult who can prove they were hurt, and anybody who paid water bills there. tomorrow is veterans day, and family members of those who fought in the global war on

and all of the sacrifice it was just way too important to be swept off. >> reporter: more than 7,000 u.s. soldiers have been killed in the war on terror and more than 50,000 wounded. gold star families and wounded warriors are eyeing three sites on the mall, next to the korean war memorial, adjacent to the vietnam memorial or on the banks of the potomac with a view of arlington cemetery why here >> it is the space that we've designated as a nation to honor the service and sacrifice past >> reporter: but congress must first approve the memorial and the effort is stalled. in 2003 congress passed a law that prohibited new monuments from being built they wanted to preserve the open space. >> it should be on our national mall. >> reporter: republican senator joni ernst, also an iraq war veteran, and democratic senator maggie hasan, are pushing congress to act. why is it so necessary >> it is part of a healing process, and for many american
families, they want to know that their loved ones will not be forgotten. >> for our veterans, especially of afghanistan, but for the entire war on terror to know that their efforts were not in vain. >> reporter: the u.s. withdrawal from afghanistan in august was a reminder of the toll the war had taken. but families want to permanently honor their sacrifice. what would it mean to come to the mall to see a memorial that honors your husband? >> everything. i don't know how else to say that, to know that he would be here, oh, my god, the thought makes me want to cry it's a big deal. it would be -- yeah. sorry. >> reporter: it is stalled in congress advocates in congress, including senators ernest and hasan are hoping to include it in the annual must-pass defense authorization bill, something that's expected to be brought up in the senate in the next month,
but there is some opposition, and that opposition is democratic senator joe manchin of west virginia he is chair of the committee that oversees the national mall, and he says he wants to hold a hearing on the issue but, shep, he hasn't yet scheduled that hearing, so it's unclear the path forward for this memorial for these families, the global war on terror. shep >> leigh ann caldwell, thank you. there was a weather setback and a minor medical issue, but after multiple delays, all systems go for spacex launch tonight. the goals for the crew's mission and why nasa is pushing back on at t-mobile for business, unconventional thinking means we see things differently, so you can focus on what matters most. whether it's ensuring food arrives as fresh as when it departs... keeping crews connected as they help build communities... or providing patients the care they need, even at home. we are the leader in 5g and a partner who delivers exceptional customer support and facebook
