crimes. as the son of an extremist, i have the insight and the experience and the least that i can do is use that to try to make the world a better place. hem llo and welcome to our viewers in the united states and all around the world. i'm paula newton in the cnn newsroom. could alec baldwin and others face charges for the fatal shooting on the movie set? i'll ask a former federal prosecutor. plus there is a new headliner on the democratic campaign trail. old and new. his name is barack obama. what he had to say about the republican party that's coming up. and the fate of the jailed businessman is the latest flash
12:01 am
point between turkey and its nato allies. we are live in istanbul with the latest. ♪ ♪ mourners paid tribute saturday to the crew member who was accidentally shot to death by actor alec baldwin. these are images from a memorial in albuquerque, new mexico, honoring helena hutchins. she was killed thursday when baldwin unknowingly fired a live round from what was supposed to be a prop gun. cnn's lucy cavanaugh was there at the vigil. she spoke to people mourning hutchins, and has new details now on that crucial time line leading up to her death. >> reporter: the people have gathered here in downtown albuquerque to mourn the passing
12:02 am
of helena hutchins, just 42 years old, a rising star in the film industry whose life was cut so tragically short. a lot of the people here are part of the industry. this vigil, in fact, was organized by the union representing film and television employees, and so a lot of folks know firsthand what happens on film sets. and so many here are affected by this one death because, again, this is a close knit community where people know one another. they're brothers and sisters as one location manager told us who was very much impacted by this tragic killing, even though she wasn't on set. she knew almost everyone in the room, she says. take a listen. >> i just hope all this talking does something. i hope my talking with you gets amplified and we get the changes that we need for a safe set. i'm sure you know we were about to strike this past monday for safer conditions. and if the world didn't believe us about what's going on, maybe
12:03 am
they believe us now. >> reporter: people should be able to go home after performing their job. >> yeah. a child should have a mother. >> reporter: again, a lot of unanswered questions. so far we have been getting some new details from an affidavit that's been released about the evidence that was gathered on that location, and a little bit of the rough time line. we understand that the head armourer, that is the person in charge of prop weapons on any film set, placed three weapons on a trae outside of a structure where, on thursday, alec baldwin and the rest of the film crew were rehearsing or filming. we understand the assistant director picked up one of the prop weapons, walked it inside the structure, handing it to mr. baldwin, shouting cold gun which in the industry means it should not have had any live rounds. unfortunately something terrible followed. we understand according to the affidavit, mr. baldwin fired the
12:04 am
weapon. that is when this fatal shooting took place. now, alec baldwin was wearing western-style clothing. again, this is for an 1880s period piece film. police say the clothing was stained with blood. they confiscated it for the investigation. we know from sheriffs they were combing every inch of the film set. they have been interviewing witnesses, they gathered electronic material, any film from iphones, ipads, anything that could help them piece together exactly what took place that fateful thursday afternoon. lucy cavanaugh cnn, accan you recollect, new mexico. >> for more on the legal fallout from this tragedy, we want to bring in a former federal prosecutor and president of west coast trial lawyers. and he joins me now from los angeles. it's really good to have you weigh in on this. look, everybody understands this was obviously a tragic accident, but even so, at this point do
12:05 am
authorities have to look at the fact that there may be some criminal liability here, and that charges are possible? >> no question, paula. even tragic accidents give rise to criminal liability when there is gross negligence or criminal negligence. that's how you get manslaughter charges. so if baldwin, the armourer, the assistant director or any or all of those three were involved with loading that prop gun with a live round, that rises to the level of criminal negligence and is grounds for manslaughter charges out there in new mexico. >> manslaughter is quite a serious charge. >> oh, no question. i mean, it's really short of -- obviously if there is actual intent, whoever loaded that prop gun with the live round intended for baldwin to use it and to shoot it, then you may even get first degree murder charges. that's premeditation. i don't think we're there yet, but manslaughter is certainly a very real possibility here. >> now, what has been so
12:06 am
disturbing is the information from some who have been working on this movie, that they were dissatisfied about safety protocols. when you hear that, on a legal level, what is the production company's responsibility? >> when we're hearing about lack of safety and so forth, that is more of a civil matter. that's general simple negligence. precautions weren't in place. for there to be criminal charges, you need something more than that. you need that intent, that mens rea, that guilty mind. if there was lack of safety precautions, that certainly is not something that anyone condones. you're looking at civil liability in a wrongful death lawsuit there. >> but not -- in terms of the actual company itself, you're saying that they would actually have to look at the actions of the individuals involved. but beyond that you're looking at civil liability, not criminal responsibility? >> general speaking it's very hard to charge an entity criminally. criminal prosecution will focus
12:07 am
on the actual individuals who were involved in arming this weapon and loading it with that live round. >> you know, we've seen obviously the heartbreaking photos of alec baldwin distraught, uncomprehending of how this could have possibly happened. and yet as producer of the film, he could also be held legally responsible in some way, right? >> no question. as an employer, he is responsible for the actions of his employees in the course and scope of employment. now, again, we're talking about civil liability there. what's very important, if you look at that search warrant and that affidavit in support of the search warrant, law enforcement specifically said that when baldwin was handed the weapon, the assistant director said, "cold gun." and baldwin's reaction afterward is consistent with someone who did not know the gun was loaded. that's why i think he's going to avoid criminal liability ultimately, but civilly
12:08 am
ultimately he will be responsible for the actions of his employees loading the weapon civilly. >> the search warrant was wide ranging. i think it surprised some of us a search warrant had to be issued. are we wrong? it seems they would have been on the crime scene and had everything they wanted in terms of evidence. >> that is the most prudent course of action if you're law enforcement. you don't want to rely on folks cooperating. you want to make sure you go to a judge, get that search warrant signed off so you can seize all the weapons, test everything. and any evidence is not destroyed or disappear. you want to lock in that evidence right away, so it's really prudent that law enforcement went to prosecutors and prosecutors went to a judge there in new mexico to get a search warrant right away. >> and from that search warrant we certainly found out already some facts of the case. thank you so much. appreciate it. >> thanks for having me. appreciate it. meanwhile, "rust" cast
12:09 am
member said he had no knowledge of the events that led to helena hutchins' death, but said movie sets are, in his words, by nature dangerous environment. he also said a bright, talented, striking, fierce mother was killed, and alec baldwin's life is forever ruined. meantime, dave halls, the assistant director on the film said "rust" was the subject of complaints in 2018. that is according to maggie gold. she is a pyro technician who has worked with halls. she said disregard for protocols for weapons and pyrotechnics used during hulu's "into the dark." in a statement to cnn, gold said the only reason they were made aware of the weapon's presence, the master prop announced the
12:10 am
situation each day. there are a number of reports of other safety protocol violations and allegations of sexual misconduct against halls as well. he has not yet responded to cnn's request for comment about gold's allegations against him. he's back. former president barack obama was out on the campaign trail for the first time this year appearing on saturday with the democratic governors of virginia and new jersey. both are facing republican challengers in november. and many democrats see both as must-wins ahead of next year's midterms. obama told the crowds that republican ideas are unpopular with most democratic voters, so they're trying to suppress voter turnout instead. here's what he said in virginia. >> if you've got good ideas, people will flock to your ideas. but that's not what they try to do. instead you're trying to rig
12:11 am
elections. because the truth is people disagree with your ideas. and when that doesn't work, you start fabricating lies and conspiracy theories about the last election, the one you didn't win. that's not how democracy is supposed to work. >> now, cnn's athena jones has more on obama's effort to generate enthusiasm among a weary base. >> reporter: hi there. president obama hitting the campaign trail again on saturday, campaigning in virginia and new jersey. the only two states that have governors races this year. both of these races are being viewed as a harbinger of what democrats may face in 2022. and, of course, democrats are hoping to keep both of these statehouses in the blue column. the focus of the new jersey event was on early in-person voting which is being allowed for the first time in new jersey. for years people had been able to early vote by mail, but now they can do so in-person. so president obama coming out to
12:12 am
urge people to turnout, to show up, to tell their friends and neighbors to vote for phil murphy and make him the first democratic governor to win reelection since the late 1970s. as we heard the president do in virginia, we also saw him in new jersey try to tie murphy's republican opponent to president trump. he slammed ciattarelli for speaking at a stop the steal rally. here's some of what he said. >> when you've got a candidate who spoke at a "stop the steal" rally, you can bet he's not going to be a champion of democracy. apparently phil's opponent says, he didn't know it was a rally to overturn the results of the last election. didn't know it. [ laughter ] come on. when you're standing in front of the sign that says "stop the steal" and there's a guy in the crowd waving a confederate flag,
12:13 am
you know this isn't a neighborhood barbecue. [ laughter ] you know it's not a league of women voters rally. come on. come on, man. >> reporter: so there you have president obama trying to tie jack ciattarelli, murphy's opponent, to president trump who is not nearly as popular in new jersey as he is in other parts of the country. bottom line here, this is all about turnout. this event was held in newark. newark is in the heart of essex county. essex county is a strong hold in new jersey. it has the most democrats registered. the goal is to make sure those people vote in-person, early, on election day. either way, they want to make sure they get to the polls. athena jones, cnn, new york. now, we have new developments in the january 6 u.s. capitol insurrection probe. video obtained by cnn shows one of the defendants speaking last month at a right-wing rally in arizona. now, also at that rally, more
12:14 am
than a dozen members of the proud boys, an extremist group which a federal judge specifically told the defendant to avoid. it comes as lawmakers in washington are looking to follow the money behind the insurrection. cnn's marshall cohen has details. >> reporter: nearly ten months after the january 6th insurrection, the investigation continues both in congress and in the courts. house democrats are moving full speed ahead with their select committee. they are zeroing in on the money trail. the finances behind those stop the steal rallies that fueled the big lie last year and all the way up to january 6th. and the rouse of representatives in a bipartisan vote held trump ally steve bannon in contempt for defying a subpoena, and they now want the justice department to bring a criminal indictment. meanwhile, federal prosecutors have charged more than 650 of the rioters. one couple from kentucky was just sentenced a few days ago to
12:15 am
pay $10,000 in fines for their role in storming the capitol. the judge in that case said that he was getting threats and threatening messages from trump supporters who still believe the big lie. he said the rioters that have been downplaying and whitewashing the attack are inspiring these continued threats. one rioter, who is part of that group of people that are staying defiant, mckaysia jackson was released but told to stay away from the proud boys because of his ties to the far-right group. he spoke at a political rally in phoenix last month that was attended by more than a dozen members of the proud boys. his lawyer said that he didn't know they would be there, and that he's complying with the conditions of his release. but regardless, take a listen to what he had to say at that event. >> on january 6, the radical
12:16 am
u.s. government weaponized the fbi, the capitol police, d.c. police, antifa, blm and democratic activists to set up a coup against patriotic americans like myself and hundreds and thousands of others being persecuted, watched and heard. that's disgusting. that is kgb stuff going on. >> reporter: obviously those are ridiculous and false conspiracy theories. prosecutors could use that material against him in court to make the case that he's not sorry for what he did. and that if he is convicted, he should deserve a harsher punishment. that's something they've done in other cases, use rioters' words against them. marshall cohen, cnn, washington. straight ahead for us, millions of u.s. children could be eligible for a covid vaccine soon. when to expect a decision, and
12:17 am
why experts say it is so important even younger kids get that vaccine. plus, turkey's president at nato allies again, why he's sp planning to expel ten diplomats, when we come back. gigi: pinky and rocky. simi: there was an uprising in poland. david: and then the family broke apart. michael: they scattered around in different places. gigi: they worked hard. simi: and built new lives. michael: but rocky and pinky's families didn't see each other again... all: ...until now. david: more than 100 years later, ancestry helped connect us to our ancestors and each other. is olay better than your clean beauty? olay has 99% pure niacinamide. it's derm-tested. and now, it's cleanest formula with hydration that beats the $400 cream. tried. tested. never bested. shop at

i'm still drawn to what's next. even with higher stroke risk due to afib not caused by a heart valve problem.
12:20 am
so if there's a better treatment than warfarin that's a trail i want to take. eliquis. eliquis reduces stroke risk better than warfarin. and has less major bleeding than warfarin. eliquis has both. don't stop taking eliquis without talking to your doctor as this may increase your risk of stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking, you may bruise more easily or take longer for bleeding to stop. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, or unusual bruising. it may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. the number one cardiologist-prescribed blood thinner. ask your doctor about eliquis. i don't just play someone brainy on tv - i'm an actual neuroscientist. and i love the science behind neuriva plus. unlike ordinary memory supplements, neuriva plus fuels six key indicators of brain performance. more brain performance? yes, please! neuriva. think bigger.

u.s. covid vaccination numbers are inching up ever so slowly. as of saturday, over 57% of americans are vaccinated. it is higher than this time last week. those numbers could go up significantly in the coming weeks if pfizer vaccine is approved for children under 11 years old. fda advisers will discuss the issue over the next weeks. that means 28 million children soon be eligible for that vaccine. it will be a big relief for so many parents. >> we know that 6 million kids have had covid. over a million in the last six weeks. they can get it. they can spread it. there have been thousands and thousands and ten thousands of kids hospitalized. so i think it's great news for families, but, of course, talk
12:22 am
to your pediatrician if you have questions. and now to the millions of americans are eligible -- will be eligible for a covid vaccine booster. the approval also came with some new guidance about exactly who should be getting another dose. cnn senior medical correspondent elizabeth cohen breaks it all down. >> reporter: the fda and the cdc have now green lit boosters for all three vaccines that are available in the u.s. pfizer, moderna, and johnson & johnson. moderna is the most recent. let's take a look at the rules at who is eligible for a moderna booster. if your original vaccine was moderna, you're eligible for a booster if you're six months past your second moderna shot, and either you're age 65 or older, or you can be any age and a front line worker, doctor, teacher, someone more likely to become infected with covid-19, or people any age with an underlying medical condition.
12:23 am
for example, being overweight is an underlying medical condition or certain heart ailments. the fda and cdc approved boosters for pfizer and j&j recipients. let's look at the rules for pfizer. the same conditions are what we just laid out for moderna. for johnson & johnson it's different. it's two months after the original shot. that's when you become eligible. and it's for all recipients. you don't have to be a certain age or have a certain medical condition. now, the fda and the cdc have made it clear that, yes, vaccine immunity is waning, but really, the vaccine is still quite good. it is still quite protective, will help keep you out of the hospital, will help keep you from dying of covid-19. but still for these groups, they're eligible to go out and get their boosters now. elizabeth cohen there. thank you very much. meantime, covid-19 cases are surging in the uk and prime minister boris johnson is encouraging more people to get that vaccine. the uk is now averaging more
12:24 am
than 45,000 new cases a day. some of the highest numbers since july. the health secretary there warned this week the daily cases could top 100,000 in the coming months. some health experts have called on the government to reinstate stricter covid rules. mr. johnson says the new lockdown is not in the cards. instead downing street has ramped up its calls for vaccinations and booster shots. one doctor said that most of the cases his colleagues see now are among the young and unvaccinated. >> the good thing is because of the significant number of people being vaccinated, it will not be time enough for hospital admissions. if you ask professional colleagues in the hospital, they will tell you the people going to the hospital are younger people and who have not been vaccinated. so the vast majority of people being admitted to hospital are unvaccinated and the younger
12:25 am
population. 12 months ago it was we were all talking about older people. now it is the unvaccinated younger people. >> the problem, there it is now, easier for vaccinated travelers to enter england. as of sunday morning they'll be able to use a cheaper lateral flow test. that is instead of the more expensive pcr version. the new rule applies to fully vaccinated passengers and most people under 18 years old coming from so-called non-red list countries. it is important to notoriety now, just seven countries, all in latin america, are still on the uk's travel red list. now, the fate of a jailed businessman is the latest flash point between turkey and its nato allies. president erdogan has threaten today expel envoys from the united states, canada and france. their offense? calling for the release of the man on this poster. he has been held without a
12:26 am
conviction since 2017, and he was acquitted on charges stemming from a protest eight years ago. but that verdict was overturned and he now faces charges for alleged involvement in the 2016 failed coup. here is mr. erdogan defending his diplomatic crackdown. >> translator: you cannot dare to come to the turkish foreign ministry and give orders here. i give the necessary order to our foreign minister and said what must be done. these ten ambassadors must be declared persona non grata at once. we will sort it out immediately. >> cnn's arwa daman joins us from istanbul. the message from allies is clear. stay out of our domestic affairs. how could this escalate further,
12:27 am
arwa? >> reporter: there are a number of terms, paula, this could escalate, transcend diplomacy to a degree and these ten ambassadors are declared persona non grata. you also have the reality that turkey is europe's biggest trading partner. therefore, europe is not as heavily reliant on turkey when it comes to the economy as turkey is on europe. and against that backdrop, also worth mentioning the turkish economy has been struggling for quite sometime now. so should europe choose to do so, it does have a number of other potential pressure points that it can try to put on turkey. that being said, this ongoing back and forth over the detention of oswan kavala has been going on a number of time with countries calling for his release, with this fairly unprecedented it must be said
12:28 am
statement that was signed by the ten countries asking for his release, asking for the decision that was taken by the european court for human rights to be upheld. that was a decision that called for kavala's immediate release. and turkey being a member of the european counsel is, in theory, supposed to uphold that decision. a lot of human rights organizations, outside observers, analysts are calling this a political move to try to continue to tamp down on voices of opposition and dissent throughout turkey. kavala is hardly the first person who has spoken out against the turkish government to find himself behind bars. this country is notorious for the jailing of journalists and opposition members. but this right now what's happening, being called a
12:29 am
diplomatic spat, but has the potential to escalate into something that is much, much more serious, paula. >> yeah, arwa, appreciate the update on that. good to get that from you, and we will continue on here at "cnn newsroom." fast, agile, hard to detect, a nuclear pay load. all the features of the next generation weapon called the hypersonic missile. we'll hear why some countries are determined to build one. plus, a hollywood star on the witness list. why an italian court wants to hear from actor richard gear. that is' next. your zzz's... and get back to your rhythm. feel the power. beat the symptoms fast.

12:33 am
and welcome back to our viewers here in the united states and all around the world. i'm paula newton and you are watching "cnn newsroom." for a second time this month, russia and china are flexing their military muscle in the western pacific. moscow says their navys finished their week long joint patrols saturday after another set of exercises earlier this month. russia and china have been building stronger military and diplomatic ties as relations with the west sour. meanwhile, a number of countries are working to build a new type of weapon called hypersonic missiles. now, earlier this week the pentagon said its test of a rocket for a hypersonic projectile failed. those weapons could be game changers because they fly extremely fast and low, and are hard to detect by missile defense systems. and that's key. earlier this year, both russia and north korea claimed they successfully tested hypersonic missiles. and according to the financial times, china followed suit this month, even though beijing is denying it.
12:34 am
joshua pollack is a senior research associate at the 3 34id -- middlebury institute and he joins me from washington. china denied what they had on their hands was a supersonic missile. saying it was a spacecraft. the financial times reported the u.s. was alarmed. and even though they officially no comment, what is this technology? and why would it potentially spark a new arms race? >> well, the missile in question, if you read the accounts in the financial times closely, is sort of a weaponized version of the space shuttle. it's a big rocket with a glider on it. the glider reenters the atmosphere. instead of coming in for a landing, though, it would attack a target. this is not a new concept.
12:35 am
it's something that the united states explored starting in the 1950s, but it's a fairly inefficient way to deliver weapons across the ocean. and i think that is why most countries have not played with this particular technology. i don't know why anyone should consider it more alarming than ballistic missiles of the sort that china already has, but certainly it does democnstrate high proficiency in space technology. >> i guess the issue is, though, how do you defend against something like this, especially if the united states had apparently been trying to do this. i mean, the u.s. said it had its own test on thursday, and it failed. i give you the fact it may not have been the same kind of test, but even the pentagon admits, look, these kinds of tests are the backbone of developing these highly complex critical technologies. what is the significance of perhaps the u.s. failure in this?
12:36 am
>> the u.s. test was a failure of a rocket booster, not of the experimental weapon. rockets are at some level just rockets. so the problem is not the ability to develop new technologies. it's just getting the details right in testing. i hesitate, though, to draw a connection between these two things. the american system is not designed to deliver nuclear weapons. it is not designed to cross the pacific. it is much more of a tactical sort of weapon. and, whereas, the chinese system is global in reach and it is presumed, i think, that like their other long-range weapons are nuclear armed -- can't be sure of that. i think we lump these things
12:37 am
together too much. the fact is the united states has been able to hit any part of china ever since we've had icbms in the 1960s. china has been able to return the favor since the mid 1990s, at the latest. so what's changed? what's new here? the answer is the united states is deploying a lot of new missile defenses, and the chinese want to be sure that they can maneuver around them so that they would be able to retaliate against any american nuclear attack. >> right. they don't want to be declared impotent in terms of what the united states might throw at them. having said that, there is no question that not just when it comes to china, but with russia as well, they have been substantially more confident and aggressive in the military sphere. a lot of what they've done has been completely conventional. but where do you think they sit now -- and i'm speaking specifically about china -- in
12:38 am
terms of where they go forward from here? because as you mentioned earlier in your answer, china has been advancing quite quickly. >> it is one or two tests that demonstrate a new technology. we don't know if they'll deploy it. we don't know what numbers they'll dough eploy it in if th. but we can say based on published accounts that this is designed to get around missile defenses. we've long said that our missile defenses are not designed to stop china's long-range missiles. only north korea's or iran's if iran should build them. so i would ask if that's a real problem for us if the chinese make doubly sure that they can beat them. i don't think it is necessarily, and i don't think we should get too concerned about specific technological achievements,
12:39 am
absent some indication that they have a very different way of thinking about nuclear weapons now. and i haven't seen that yet. >> yeah, and hopefully that will never come -- take the point and many of these matters strategic stalemate is best for everyone. joshua pollack from the middlebury institute of international research. thanks so much. the former interior minister is lashing out at the start of the trial in his role of blocking a ship of migrant from docking. he is accused of kidnapping 147 migrants in 2019 after he denied their ship permission to disembark in italy. prosecutors say that left the migrants stranded at sea, putting their very lives at risk, a claim saldini denies. the right leaning politician attacked the seriousness of the allegations due to the presence of american actor richard gear on the witness list.
12:40 am
keir visited the migrants on board while they waited 0 of the coast of italy. for more on this i'm joined by cnn contributor coming to us from rome. it is really quite a case, especially because salvini has put the presence much richard gear potentially in this case front and center. >> that's right. he's really the one who has drawn attention to this star witness. you know, richard gear visited these migrant, brought them food and water and really called attention to the crisis on board that ship when it was happening. that was august 2019. 147 people, who were rescued off the ghocoast of libya by a span ngo. he is arguing italy shouldn't be trying the case, they should have taken them to spain. the next round is december 17. we don't know when richard gear will testify, whether it will be by video or he'll come to sicily and do it in person. he'll be able to give a glimpse of what it was like on that ship and whether the migrants were in
12:41 am
danger, their lives were in danger. they were runging ning out of f and water, in extremely cramped conditions. salvini was against migration while he was interior minister, was trying to block it, and get the ngo ships that didn't have an italian flag to take the migrants to the countries where they came. this is going to bring migration and the crisis that continues, 49,000 people have arrived so far in italy by sea this year alone. it's going to bring that front and center. a lot of people are watching to see what happens next because they want to see what richard gear has to say. paula? >> it will also be interesting to see if the eu weighs in on this perhaps before or after this court case is over. we really appreciate that update. now, just days before the cop-26 summit in scotland, one of the world's largest polluters makes a bold announcement on achieving its own net zero emissions.

we're one week out from the un's cop-26 climate summit, a major gathering of world leaders aimed at tackling climate change. and one of the world's largest energy polluters is making a bold new promise. saudi arabia has set a goal of net zero carbon emissions by 2060. the crown prince made the announcement saturday at the saudi green initiative in riyad ahead of the glasgow conference. take a listen. >> translator: i announce today that the kingdom of saudi arabia aims to reach net zero in the year 2060 through the carbon circular economy approach. in line with its development plans and enabling its economic diversification, and in accordance with the dynamic baseline while preserving and
12:46 am
reinforcing the kingdom's leading role in the security and stability of global energy markets. >> now, the saudi state-run aramco oil company produces more carbon dioxide emissions than any other. nearly 60 billion tons pumped into the atmosphere over the past 50 years, on saturday its chief executive said the company's commitment to net zero emissions would require global cooperation. >> our investment is not going to be enough. the world needs to make the right investment now. otherwise we will end up with a global economic crisis. >> meantime, britain's prince charles delivered a keynote address at that saudi event speaking by video. he warned of a, quote, dangerously narrow window to tackle the climate crisis and said it was imperative the upcoming cop-26 summit lead to concrete actions.

with helen mountford of the world resources institute. she said even oil-producing states like saudi arabia are waking up to the reality of the climate crisis as well as the growing market for alternative energy. take a listen. >> i mean, i think what we're seeing around the world is actually governments, business leaders, academics, societies are waking up to the climate crisis. the fact that things are changing, that we have this very narrow window to actually make the shifts that we need to do. but we are also starting to see the markets are simply moving. so interestingly, i mean, as we move towards more electric vehicles around the world, much faster than anyone thought possible, you know, three, four years ago, it's really taking off. and as we do that, the demand for oil is going to be shifting. it's going to be going down. similarly as we go to renewable energies, we're going to need much less demand for fossil fuels. i think we're seeing a wake up in the markets, in the finance

several states in the western u.s. are bracing themselves for a major storm. it's set to hit in the coming hours and last through monday. millions at risk of severe weather at this point. it's the third round in a series of strong storms. meteorologist derek van dam is following all of it for us. i mean, what really caught my attention is the fact these are the very places that suffered through those devastating
12:54 am
wildfires. >> yep, that's right. in fact, new overnight, some of those very same areas you're mentioning have gone from evacuation warning to evacuation order by local officials. and that means it's actually unlawful to remain within this particular area as this atmospheric river of moisture just unloads itself across the western u.s. making those burn areas particularly vulnerable. we talk about this bomb cyclone. there is a specific definition to the storm. it's a strengthening process that takes place over the open ocean waters. there's a lot of wind and moisture associated with it. it's creating this, what we call atmospheric river tapping into the pacific moisture. that is going to allow significant amounts of precipitation. you can see over the next 36 hours across central and northern california all the way to oregon as well as washington. the threats here, flash flooding, but the debris floe, that's the concern. that's where the evacuation orders are underway. santa barbara, san mateo counties, those two locations
12:55 am
right now, mandatory evacuation orders going -- taking place at 8:00 a.m. this morning local time. and this is because of the recent burn fires within this area. take, for instance, the lsl bun scar in santa barbara county. it has compromised burnt topsoil because of the recent wildfires that scorched the earth in this area. the heavy rain on top of this cannot hold this amount of precipitation, so ultimately the slope fails, and we get these debris floes. which, by the way, can travel upwards of 50 miles per hour and overspread several miles and create several instances of damage as well. so we're going to monitor the situation very closely, but a whole slew of threats here from debris floes to several feet of snow and flash flooding. it is going to be a busy, busy next couple of days. paula? >> 50 miles an hour for a debris flow. we were hoping all of those people stay safe.
