1:03 am
rapper took the stage. >> people became more rowdy, antsy, standoffish is what i say. >> a security guard was pricked in the neck with a needle. >> he went unconscious. they administered narcan. he was revived and the medical staff did notice a prick that was similar to a prick that you could get if somebody's trying to inject. >> reporter: but scott maintains he had no idea about the severity of what was happening in the crowd as he continued his set telling fans in an instagram video saturday night that he is devastated by what happened. >> any time i can make out, you know, anything that's going on, you know, i stop the show and, you know, help them get the help they need. >> reporter: it isn't the first

stage. in houston a criminal investigation is now underway according to police for urging concert goers to contact them if they have information to share. the medical examiner's office also seeking help identifying this man, one of the victims in this tragedy. rosa flores, cnn, houston. and i do want to show you a chaotic scene just a few hours after that deadly crush. it happened when people started to enter the park. a mob of mostly young people shoved and crashed their way through the entrances destroying the metal detectors and barricades and overwhelming the few security officers posted there. this local news reporter saw it all happen. >> we were heading in through the vip security area and we saw the crowds running across the pedestrian bridge from the nrg stadium parking lot to the other side of cushing. the security guards who were checking our bags knew what was
1:06 am
coming and pulled all of us to the side. seconds later you see what happened. hundreds of people rushed through the checkpoint trampling one another, tore down the metal detectors. they were falling and stomping on each other. it was chaos. a few were handcuffed. he told the security officer he really wanted to be inside this festival so bad which led me to believe many people did not have tickets, tickets to astro world sold out within hours of going on sale several months ago and that was before people even knew what the lineup was. >> and that report from our affiliate ktrk. president joe biden is fresh off a major victory in congress. lawmakers passed his $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill on friday. it includes investments to the nation's water and energy systems, roads, bridges and broadband infrastructure. passage of the bill came after
1:07 am
weeks of delays and mayor a thorn negotiations on capitol hill. now the president faces an even heavier lift, convincing enough lawmakers to pass his social spending bill. arlitt saenz has more. >> reporter: president biden is hitting the road to promote the newly passed bipartisan infrastructure bill. he will travel to baltimore on wednesday where he's expected to talk about the ways the bill will improve the nation's port as well as issues relating to the supply chain. while the white house is taking this victory lap when it comes to the infrastructure bill, they also have a long road ahead on the larger social safety net spending bill that they're hoping to get passed in the coming weeks. they are waiting for the cbo score which they are waiting to analyze. the moderates have said they will vote for the larger package no later than the week of
1:08 am
november 15th. we'll see if they keep their word on that. once they pass the bill, it needs to move onto the senate. joe manchin wants to see changes to the bill. one thing manchin takes issue with is the inclusion of paid family leave. take a listen to white house chief of staff who expressed confidence the bill still will pass acknowledging there will be changes. take a listen. >> i think the bill will pass the house when the house comes back. i'm sure the senate will make changes. that's the way the legislative process works. we will get a version through to law. >> reporter: as for the bipartisan signing, he will invite republicans and democrats who worked together to get the bill across the finish line. even be as they are celebrating that win, the white house still has a long road ahead when it
1:09 am
comes to the larger spending bill they're hoping to get passed in the next few weeks. arlitt saenz, cnn, the white house. although passage of the bill is a win, it exposed deep divisions among democratic islands. i asked whether that will harm democrats moving forward. here's what he told me. >> there's an old saying, winning solves everything. but does it? and does it last? you can't paper over some of the deep fault lines in the democratic party. between the moderates on the one hand and the progressives, they were openly fighting and there's the threat of open warfare. they came together and the question is can biden get the two sides to pull theiroars in the same direction. on the big spending bill, he got
1:10 am
a few republican votes. he'll have a tougher time with the social spending. public fights within a party, within a family, they can be ugly and the democrats have a history of when trying to be a governing party they tend to form into a circular firing squad. biden's job is to get them to pull their oars in the same direction. herculean if he does it. u.s. vice president kamala harris is heading to france this week hoping to mend america's strained relationship with its oldest ally. harris will meet with emmanuel macron on wednesday. they temporarily recalled their ambassador. that deal ended france's agreement to build diesel powered submarine for australia.

it's crunch time for critical climate talks in glasgow as the cop26 summit enters the final week. former u.s. president barack obama will be delivering remarks in the coming hours. he's expected to focus on the progress since the 2015 paris agreement which the u.s. signed on to under the obama administration. cnn's phil black joins us now live from glasgow. good to see you, phil. so a day of solutions ahead and former u.s. president barack obama will be speaking. what all can we expect to come out of this day and of course this final week. >> reporter: rosemary, barack obama's appearance here is a reminder what they all signed up to when they clapped and cheered the paris agreement in 2015 which is limiting global temperature warming to an average 1.5 degrees. this is a reminder how
1:12 am
desperately short they are falling in terms of living up to that intention, to that promise. the final week will be after a short stock taking period, a desperate sprint to the deadline to try and close the many wide gaps that exist across a range of issues, but emissions cuts and the shortages there remains the core issue. how to get them on a credible path to achieving what the science says is necessary. to refloekting the time frame, the very limited time frame the science points to as well. crucially there are still a number of countries that are not acting quickly in the short term because a number of countries have come in to this conference promising to hit net carbon zero by the middle of the century. very few countries presenting detailed credible plans about just how they're going to achieve that. countries such as brazil, china, mexico, these are countries that have indicated they're not going to change their behavior before
1:13 am
2030. persuading them to do so will be a core focus of this final stretch. realistically they are not going to overhaul their positions so, therefore, what this conference will set about achieving and perhaps will relatively be judged in terms of success or failure will be whether or not it can revise a mechanism or process whereby countries will come together at shorter intervals to review the commitments they are making. this is the first such review. there is a broad agreement that says things are simply too urgent. time is too short. we can't wait another five years for the countries to come together again and have another go at this. it needs to happen much sooner. there is a push to perhaps make it happen every two years, even every year. the hope is with that urgency, that frequency there can become a greater sense of momentum, that ambition can be ramped up and that goal, that dream of achieving a 1.5 average limit on
1:14 am
temperature increase, that that can still somehow be achieved. rosemary? >> phil black in glasgow, scotland, many thanks. earlier i spoke with mike masslynn, professor of science at university of london. i asked him what's been achieved so far. >> first thing is we've had three big announcements in the first week, which has been really intelligent. the first one is the one to end deforestation completely by 2030 signed by most of the major nations. we've had two big calling outs, one is stopping funding and others country pledging to phase out coal, which is really good. the big one which was the 30% reduction in methane emissions which is a powerful greenhouse gas by 2030.
1:15 am
the interesting thing is you can put all of those together and the countries deliver all of the things they promise. we can keep temperature to 1.8, 1.9 degrees above pre-industrial times. >> that was professor mark maslin joining me a short time ago. join us with the first ever call to earth day, wednesday, november 10th. cnn is partnering with schools, individuals and organizations around the world to raise awareness of environmental issues. it will be a day of action, dedicated conservation, environmentalism and sustainability. follow us online and on tv and follow #calltoearth on social media. more people in the u.s. are eligible for a covid-19 vaccine. the new federal vaccine mandate has run into legal trouble. plus, a day many people have wanted to see for a long time. the u.s. is open to fully

unconstitutional. loyola law school professor jessica levenson says the court's reasoning for the black lacks standing. take a listen. >> the reasoning i think amounted to about four paragraphs here and they basically said we have grave concerns about the statutory and constitutional authority. that's not the reasoning you need to use in order to issue a stay. we've known for centuries what type of reasoning or at least for decades what type of reasoning you need. you need to show the people challenging the law saying we need the stay are going to face irreparable harm. you need to show that they're likely to succeed on the merits of the case. you need to show that the people who are defending against the stay, what type of harm will they face and you need to look at the public interest. the court didn't engage in any of those inquiries. this is a decision that i hate to say is it was made by three

uncherished people might say it's empathy. government will say things were looking brighter a few months ago, more and more people are getting vaccinated and that people wanted their lives back and as a result travel restrictions were loosened. mask wearing was no longer obligatory and more and more people had seemingly developed an immunity to covid-19 thanks to having two vaccinations. now we know people are spending more time indoors as it's getting colder. that means there's a greater risk of the virus circ can you lating. there's also concerns immunity is starting to wane. this is what they were warning about on the television just yesterday saying particularly among the elderly populations. there's evidence immunity can be lasting six months and that's behind the big push for booster shots that's happening more in the u.k. with 10 people seeing the figures.
