7:03 am
that global summit to the amazon rain forest even to ginger doing some climbing. she's hundreds of feet in the air. but first, "world news tonight" anchor david muir will start us off. he's there live in scotland for us. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, robin, george, t.j. great to be with you this morning. as you mentioned the stakes could not be higher here. this crucial climate summit under way. president biden among the world leaders gathering here shortly. showing air force one touching down. nearly 200 countries and all of course, here with one purpose, to slow down what we're already seeing with global warming. president biden of course, faces the task of signaling to the world now that the u.s. will be at the forefront of this fight after the u.s. pulled out of the paris climate deal several years back, and some stark words here at the start of the summit. the head of the u.n. climate office declaring government leaders face two choices here in glasgow. she said they can sharply cut greenhouse gas emissions and help countries survive what's becoming a hotter, a harsher world, or we accept that humanity faces a bleak future on
7:04 am
this planet. i can tell you many here were disappointed more did not come out of the g-20 this weekend in rome. leaders in the wealthiest nations coming out with propositions that were not as much as many had hoped for. ending government financing for coal fired power in other countries, but no firm deadline for phasing it out in their own countries. preside xi and russia's vladimir putin are not here saying they didn't show up with any commitments. a number to think about here as we're on the air this morning. the world has warmed more in the last 29 years than in the previous 110 years. this is accelerating. it is worrisome. and robin, i can tell you here the billboards in glasgow as we were driving through the city just this morning, they say it all as the leaders arrive here. they say the world is looking at you. >> yes, and you mentioned the wealthier nations, david. one of the big debates, how wealthier nations help developing nations truly feeling
7:05 am
the effects of climate change. >> reporter: you know, that's a really good question, robin. it's a question they have had for years, and they'll tackle it again at this summit. you're absolutely right. that remains a huge part of this debate. how will the developed nations, the wealthiest of nations help so many of the smaller nations? in so many cases, they contribute so little to global warming and yet they are paying the biggest price, and in our next half hour, i'll take you to southern madagascar where more than a million people are in desperate need of food, and the children need the world's help right now. as you know, robin, we're back. the first american network to get access to that country to fly into the south. more than just heart breaking, robin, it really signals to everyone around the world that global warming isn't something we worry about a couple years, a decade from now. it is here. these children, the faces of these children, and their eyes, it will tell you we need to act now. >> i look forward to your report in our next half hour.
7:06 am
david, thank you. george? president biden has touched down in edinborough. he's hoping his plan to battle climate change will affect other leaders. cecilia vega is traveling with the president. she joins us now. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: good morning from windy scotland this morning here. president biden just touched down, and we've got that video coming in right now. he's got a tough sell here. that's the reality for him this morning. he needs to convince the other countries that america can actually lead on climate. you mentioned that domestic program back home, $555 billion in that social infrastructure package for climate change. that's a record amount of money dedicated by the government to fight climate change, but on its own, experts say that won't get the president to his goal of reducing greenhouse gases in half by 2030. i pushed him on this. yesterday was his first press conference here on this foreign trip abroad. he said he's still convinced he can meet that goal, but this morning, we have been talking about this. the president and other world
7:07 am
leaders in these richest countries around the world are setting the modest goals on climate back home. the president is going to be laying out some plans to help these developing nations, what david was just talking about. but george, he's going to be met with a lot of skepticism here. that's the reality on the ground as he heads into this conference in glasgow today. so many leaders around the country have seen so many other american presidents lay out these plans to fight climate change only to be met with resistance back home. that's what's happening to president biden early in his administration so far, george. >> the white house press secretary jen psaki has tested positive for covid? >> reporter: yeah. this is a big deal. she's not on this trip and stayed behind because she said she had a family emergency and she announced yesterday that a member of her household had tested positive. she tested positive yesterday after testing negative for four days in a row. she says she is vaccinated. she's only experiencing mild symptoms, but the big question is what kind of contact she had with the president. she said she last saw president biden in person on tuesday. they were outside. they wore masks, and they were socially distanced and we're told by the white house that president biden tested negative yesterday on his way into
7:08 am
scotland, george. >> we'll have more from david and cecilia ahead, and they'll have reports on glasgow for a special edition of "world news tonight." t.j.? we turn back now to what was an absolute travel mess over the weekend. more than 2,000 flights canceled. more than 1,800 were canceled by american airlines alone, and more trouble already this morning. trevor ault keeping an eye on this for us in miami. there are some ripple effects nationwide, trevor. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, t.j. yesterday alone american airlines canceled more than a third of their flights. this morning they canceled 250 more and counting. this is the latest airline to experience essentially crippling logistical failure that is stranding thousands in the process. travellers are worried about what could be coming in the next couple months. this morning, the fallout at airports across america from another mass cancellation spree. >> all these people, in line,
7:09 am
trying to find alternative flights. >> reporter: more than 2,000 flights canceled this weekend across several airlines. >> my flight was 12 hours ago. i haven't been able to get ahold of anybody. got work to go back to. >> reporter: lines like this one in dallas. in philadelphia customers demanding answers trying to get rebooked. >> i'm in concourse b at the philadelphia airport where i'm standing in line with a lot of people. you can see over my shoulder here. we've got that much ahead of us. i'm really frustrated. >> reporter: american airlines having the most trouble scrapping more than 1,800 flights, blaming weather and a shortage of flight attendants. in a letter to employees, now pledging 4,000 new team members and 600 new flight attendants heading into the holiday season. >> it's going to be a very, very tough holiday travel season. so if you are planning on traveling during the holidays, you better have a plan b. >> reporter: the chaos comes
7:10 am
just weeks after southwest canceled 2,000 flights in a matter of days stranding thousands of travelers and employees, and costing the airline $75 million. and after almost 200 cancellations this weekend, southwest now further scaling back their flights to make sure they have enough staff. now for what it's worth, the ceos of all the major american airlines have been reassuring their stakeholders that they are prepared for the holiday season, but it has become clear that even a small scale disruption has the potential to cause a crippling chain reaction. robin? >> it certainly does, trevor. thank you. we're going to turn now to the latest on the pandemic as we get ready for a big week for the vaccine. pfizer already shipping out millions of doses for children ages 5 to 11. erielle reshef has the latest. >> reporter: this morning, final preparations under way across the country with the start of injections of the pfizer vaccine for kids ages 5 to 11 expected as soon as wednesday.
7:11 am
a cdc advisory panel meeting tuesday. the cdc director likely to sign off soon after that. 15 million initial pfizer doses shipping over the weekend, but the white house urging patience as providers begin receiving and administering those pediatric doses, saying it may take until next week to get a majority of eligible kids their first shot. >> the bulk of vaccines will be in their locations by the week of november 8th. >> reporter: infectious disease doctor and mom of two heather howell is anxious to get her 5-year-old and 8-year-old kids vaccinated after tending to sick children and babies in the nicu at nyu. >> with kids there' always thoughtfulness and ensuring you're doing the best thing ment i do hope that people trust the science and that we can, you know, encourage them to
7:12 am
vaccinate their children, and so as a community we can move forward. >> reporter: as families prepare for younger children to get those shots, pushback from some first responders to vaccine mandates. in new york city, 2,000 fdny employees calling out sick over the past week, causing a number of fire department engine companies to be taken out of service. the fire commissioner saying irresponsible, bogus sick leave by some of our members is creating a danger for new yorkers and their fellow firefighters. they need to return to work or risk the consequences of their actions. and so far, the fdny says those sick calls have not impacted response times, but the fire department union saying dozens of companies could be closed today. george? >> erielle, thanks so much. we go to the supreme court now where justices are set to consider the constitutionality of the new law that all but bans abortions in texas. it could determine the fate of roe v. wade. rachel scott is live at the court with a preview of today's hearing. good morning, rachel. >> reporter: george, good morning. it's been exactly two months
7:13 am
since the supreme court allowed the most restrictive abortion law in the nation to go into effect in texas, and today the justices will hear arguments that could determine the future of it. the texas law bans abortions as early as six weeks into a woman's pregnancy. the justices today will focus on how the law was designed and how it is enforced. the texas law empowers private citizens to sue anyone who helps a woman get an unlawful abortion from doctors to uber drivers who may take a woman to the clinic. the reward, at least $10,000. the court will hear two cases. one brought by abortion providers, the others by the biden administration. both insist the law was designed to avoid review by federal courts. while the supreme court hears these challenges the texas law stays in effect. the reality for most women in that state remains. if they want an abortion, they will most likely have to travel out of the state to get one. george? >> rachel scott, thanks very much. t.j.? we turn to now a surprisingly tight race for virginia governor, and what could be a glimpse at what will
7:14 am
happen across the country in 2022. most polls show a dead heat between terry mcauliffe and glenn youngkin as we head into election day tomorrow. our stephanie ramos with the latest for us. >> reporter: this morning, all eyes on the deadlocked governor's race. the candidates racing toward the finish line. the outcome, a possible preview how republicans will campaign in the midterms next year. with control of congress at stake amid the president's slumping poll numbers and a divided democratic caucus. >> let's bring it home, everybody. let's go. >> reporter: some big name democrats lining up behind former virginia governor terry mcauliffe. >> vote, vote, vote, vote, vote. >> reporter: with president biden, vice president harris and former president barack obama all hitting the trail to shore up support as republican enthusiasm surges in a state president biden won by ten points. >> we are winning the independent votes by double digits. >> reporter: polls show political newcomer and businessman glenn youngkin
7:15 am
statistically tied with mcauliffe, using talking points republicans having seized on like the economy and education. >> parents have a right to be engaged in their kids' education. >> reporter: vowing to stand up for parents in the classroom and ban critical race theory from being taught in school. >> he has pitted parents against parents. he's got parents against teachers, and he's bringing his personal culture wars into our classrooms. >> reporter: back in 2013 when mcauliffe won his first gubernatorial term, he broke the so-called virginia curse of candidates losing virginia's off-year gubernatorial race if the same party affiliation was in the white house. mcauliffe will try to do the same again tomorrow. george? >> stephanie ramos, thank you. we move onto the horror in tokyo. at least 17 people injured when a knife-wielding man in a joker-like costume was on a subway. ian pannell has the latest. good morning, ian. >> reporter: that's right. at least 17 injured in that horrific subway attack in japan. the man dressed in a costume similar to batman's joker
7:16 am
stabbing terrified passengers in tokyo. also setting fire to some seats in the carriage. commuters desperate to escape having to climb through the windows. firefighters, police and paramedics having to rescue passengers. authorities say 17 were injured, one man in his 70s who is in serious condition. the attacker was identified as a 24-year-old man. he was arrested on the spot, and he's now being investigated for attempted murder. his motive is unknown. the japanese police telling abc news the suspect confessed he wanted to kill and get the death penalty. george? >> what a story. ian, thank you very much. robin? >> what a story indeed. now to the world series and the houston astros force a game six. will reeve is here with that. good morning, will. >> reporter: good morning, robin. if you turned off the game after the first inning and checked the score, you would have wondered what happened? the braves are up 3-1 in the series and looking to clinch their first title since 1995. they had a grand slam in the first inning. the home crowd going absolutely crazy.
7:17 am
atlanta, up 4-0. atlanta losing 9-5. how? the astros just chipped away. they tied the game in the third inning and again in the fifth. then they blew it open in the later innings, and they survive at least another day. everyone heading back to texas for game six tomorrow night. the braves are hoping to benefit from a nugget of recent history that continued last night. the astros hoping to rewrite it. no team has clinched the world series on its home field since the 2013 boston red sox. now it's best of seven, game six tomorrow night. >> really hoping they could clinch and celebrate in atlanta last night. >> we can hear it in your voice. >> you were hoping. just defeated. >> yes. just up late. >> thanks, will. a lot more coming up on "gma" including alec baldwin, speaking about the movie set shooting. plus, there's a new report
7:18 am
detailing the chaos that occurred immediately after. and we'll have more with david muir taking us on a journey inside a country experiencing climate change like no other. but first, we say good morning to ginger. good morning, ginger. >> reporter: good morning, america. there is no better way to start climate coverage this week in our new unit, but by being on top of a wind turbine and watching the sun rise. i'll be showing you more about this, and talking about wind energy, but we have to look at what happened in new hampshire and maine. 3 to 6 inches of rain. flash flooding there, and behind it, some of the coldest air of the season. there are freeze warnings in northern illinois, and iowa, and by wednesday morning, right here in northern pennsylvania, we're going to have freeze warnings in place because the temperatures are going to drop into the 30s not just for new york, but of course, boston too. all right. let's go ahead and get those select cities sponsored by capital one.

>> you can fight against the cancer in the republican party of lies, of conspiracy, of dishonesty, and you ultimately come to the realization that basically it's me, liz cheney and a few others that are telling the truth and there are about 190 people in the republican party that aren't going to say a word. >> he was one of only ten republicans to vote for impeachment of president trump. one of only two serving on the january 6th committee. t.j.? and some sad news from our abc news family. we are remembering jovita moore this morning. a beloved anchor at abc affiliate wsb in atlanta. she passed away at the age of 54 after battling brain cancer. she arrived at that station in 1998, spent more than two decades covering the ins and outs of atlanta. tributes have been pouring in for jovita over the weekend. martin luther king iii to governor kemp. tyler perry shared this on twitter. we know you fought with all you

7:33 am
that is coming up. but right now we move onto alec baldwin. he's speaking publicly for the first time since accidentally shooting and killing halyna hutchins on the set of his movie "rust," and we're learning about those fatal final moments. kaylee hartung is in los angeles with the latest. good morning, kaylee. >> reporter: good morning, george. alec baldwin was questioned by authorities before he ever left that movie set, and officials in santa fe have told us he's continued to cooperate with the investigation even now as he's far from new mexico. this morning, we are hearing baldwin break his silence and he's saying he does not expect "rust" to ever resume production. >> there are incidental accidents on film sets from time to time, but nothing like this. this is a one in a trillion accident. >> reporter: an emotional alec baldwin speaking out for the first time since tragedy struck on the movie set of "rust" saying he's talking to police daily. >> i have been ordered by the sheriff's department in santa fe, i can't answer any questions about the investigation. i can't. it's an active investigation in terms of a woman dying.
7:34 am
>> reporter: it was just 11 days ago that a bullet fired from the actor's gun killing cinematographer halyna hutchins and injuring director joel souza. >> she was my friend. she was my friend. the day i arrived in santa fe to start shooting, i took her to dinner with joel the director. >> reporter: baldwin and his wife hilaria addressing paparazzi on the side of the road in a small town in vermont where their family has gone for privacy. >> when you met with the lady's family -- >> her name is halyna. if you are spending this much time waiting for us, you should know her name. her name is halyna. >> i met with her husband matthew and her son. he is in shock. he has a 9-year-old son. we are in constant contact with him because we're very worried about his family and his kid. >> reporter: hutchins' family honoring her over the weekend in a private funeral service in los angeles. back in new mexico, the investigation continues to determine how live ammunition got on that movie set, and loaded into baldwin's gun. >> we have two people
7:35 am
accidentally shot on a movie set by a prop gun. we need help immediately. >> reporter: what the expletive just happened? according to the "l.a. times," alec baldwin repeated the words again and a again with growing urgency in the moments after the fatal gunshot. >> we were a very, very, you know, well-oiled crew shooting a film together and then this horrible event happened. >> reporter: baldwin was preparing for a scene in this church according to officials when the film's assistant director handed him a gun telling him it was cold meaning it did not contain live rounds. only dummies. as baldwin attempted to show the crew what he would do when they started rolling he placed his hand on the colt .45 in his holster. he said, i guess i'm going to take this out, pull and it go bang. that's when the fatal shot unexpectedly fired. >> in an ongoing effort to limit the use of firearms on film sets is something i'm extremely interest in. i'm not an expert in this field. so whatever other people decide is the best way to go in terms
7:36 am
of protecting people on film sets i'm in favor of it. i will cooperate with that in any way that i can. >> reporter: crew members have told us that before that fatal shooting, there were red flags on the set. at least two accidental discharges of prop guns. the film's armorer hannah gutierrez reed said one was at the hand of the prop master and another, a stuntman. the film's production company says they never received any official complaints regarding weapon safety onset. guys? >> thanks very much. let's bring in dan abrams. dan, i imagine alec baldwin's lawyer was not thrilled to see him speaking to paparazzi. >> the question becomes, did he say anything that did or could hurt him? i think the answer was no. i was an innocuous statement. he didn't talk about any of the facts regarding the case, but he talked about his feelings. he talked about emotions, et cetera. even there there's a potential mine field regarding family members, et cetera.
7:37 am
i think he did avoid those. he's really just coming out and speaking to the photographers who were there waiting for him. it wasn't like this was a press conference with a bunch of journalists who were prepared to ask him the questions. >> and as we continue to learn more about the situation on set, dan, what really jumps out at you that's significant legally? >> previous safety issues. so you've got these accidental discharges that had happened on the set previously. you had a crew member concerned about safety. those are the two most important things to me legally because when you're evaluating this through a legal prism, you ask yourself, what did they know? when did they know it? what could they have done to prevent it? those are all relevant questions that may be answered by some of what else was happening on that set. >> what do they know and when do they know it? is that the line will be when we talk about civil versus criminal charges? >> it's really hard to answer that question. i could cite the new mexico manslaughter statute. >> please do. >> it wouldn't answer your question is the reason i say it.
7:38 am
really what the standard is going to be, is how dangerous was this set? how negligent were they? meaning if this was just a single incident where this is sort of as alec baldwin said, a one in a trillion event that never could have been predicted, there are not going to be criminal charges then, but if there's the sense that this was a dangerous set, and they had previous warnings. not just a single issue, but multiple issues, then you talk about the real possibility of criminal charges. >> we also heard this weekend from the armorer who was in charge of the gun. she said she didn't know there was a live round on set, and she was forced to work two jobs on the set. significance? >> everyone is pointing the finger at her and this is her defense. she said, look, i did everything by the book. the issues that have arisen wren't my fault. we'll see. i mean, that could end up being true. in the end when you're the armorer -- >> if there's a gun on the cart with a live round in it --
7:39 am
>> she would say that none of the live rounds were due to her. she would say, nothing when it came to live rounds would have been allowed under her watch. >> wasn't she supposed to check the gun? >> that's also the job of the first assistant director as well. >> thank you. >> so many questions. >> yeah. coming up, david muir takes us inside the country on the brink of a disaster linked to climate change. come on back. ♪ best of my love” by black pumas feat. sofia reyes ♪ what the holidays give, is meant to be shared. it's the new traditions that lift us up, and the way our celebrations are prepared. it's making room for all... so that our world doesn't feel so small. it's when moments of light bring us closer than before... and illuminate those we do it for. what we value most, shouldn't cost more.

anchor david muir. the first american network journalist on the ground in southern madagascar. good morning again, david. >> reporter: robin, great to see you again. it's really hard to put into words what we witnessed. the u.n. right now is sounding the alarm that southern madagascar is on the brink of the first climate change famine, and you know that we've covered hunger and famine around the world. usually there's war, conflict, terror driving it. this is climate. this morning as world leaders meet on climate change, what we witnessed on the ground with the aid workers in southern madagascar. where the u.n. is now sounding the alarm, saying this country is on the brink of the first climate change famine. we are given rare access to their emergency effort. the trucks disappearing in the wind-driven sand. five years of drought here. we see it in the faces of the children.

is 4, they wrap the tape around her tiny arm, the small window in the red. showing her stomach to the aid workers, she is given fluids for dehydration, and an antibiotic, unsure of its taste. >> what are we witnessing right now as far as climate? >> it's something really new. it's a change in the landscape. having sand storms in this kind of landscape, it's not something usual, and having the effects of sand storms shows that nature is changing. the environment is changing, and the climate change is affecting this area more than the rest of madagascar. it's building up year after year, the rains are less and the people have less and less food to eat. >> reporter: the faces of the children there. after five years of drought, violent sand storms, and the farmland disappearing. the climate is driving this. and robin, george, t.j., this

7:55 am
. >> announcer: this is an abc news special report. now reporting david muir. hello, everyone. from glassgow, scotland. president biden is expected to speak at any moment here at cop26. profound questions before us. it's simple -- we act, we do what is necessary? will we seize the enormous opportunity before us? or will we condemn future generations to suffer?
7:56 am
this is the decade that will determine the answer. this decade. the science is clear, we only have a brief window left before us to raise our ambitions and to raise to meet the task that's rapidly narrowing. this is a decisive decade in which we have an opportunity to prove ourselves. we can keep the goal of limiting global warming to just 1.5 degrees celsius within our reach, if we come together. if we commit to doing our part of each of our nations with determination and with ambition, that's what cop26 is all about. glasgow must be the kickoff of a decade -- a decade of ambition. and innovation to preserve our shared future. climate change is already ravaging the world. we've heard from many speakers.
7:57 am
it's not a hypothetical threat. it's destroying livelihoods. it's costing our nations trillions of dollars. record heat and drought. fueling more widespread and more intense wildfires and in some places crop failures in others. record flooding and what used to be a once in a century storms are now happening every few years. in the past few months, the united states has experienced all of this, and every region of the world can tell similar stories. in an age this pandemic has made so painfully clear that no nation can wall itself off from borderless threat. we know that we can't escape the worst that's yet to come if we fail to seize this moment. but ladies and gentlemen, within
7:58 am
the growing catastrophe, i i believe there's an incredible opportunity not only for the united states but for all of us. we're standing at an inflection point in the world history, invest in ourselves and build a clean energy future and in the process create millions of good-paying jobs and opportunities around the world. cleaner air for our children. bountiful oceans. we can create an environment that raises the standard of living around the world. and this is a moral imperative but it's also an economic imperative. if we fuel greater growth new jobs better opportunities for all our people, and as we see current volatility in gas prices we must view it as a call to
7:59 am
action. high energy prices only, only reinforce the urgent need to diversify sources, double down on clean energy development and adapt promising new clean energy technologies so that we cannot only overly overreliant on one source. this is a chance in my view to make a generational investment in our economic resill yins and our communities throughout the world. that's what we're going to do in the united states. my build back better framework will make historic investments in clean energy. we're going to cut u.s. greenhouse gas emissions by well over a gigaton by 2030.
8:00 am
making it affordable for consumers to save on their own energy bills. winterizing their homes. lowering energy prices, deliver cleaner air and water for our children. increasing credits for electric vehicles and addressing legacy pollution. it will incent vise clean energy manufacturing building solar panels and wind turbine that are growing energy markets of the future. create good-paying union workers for american workers and something that none of us should lose sight of, when i talked to the american people about climate change i tell them it's about jobs, about workers, the auto workers build the next generation of electrical grids.
8:01 am
the engineers will design new carbon capture systems and the construction workers who will make them a reality. the farmers who will not only help fight global hunger but also use the soil to fight climate change. the communities revitalize themselves around new industries and opportunities and because we are taking all these actions, the united states will be able to meet the ambitious target i set back in april reducing u.s. emissions by 50% to 53% below 2005 levels by 2030. we'll demonstrate to the world the united states is not only back to the table and hopefully leading by the power of our example. i know it hasn't been the case and that's why my administration is working overtime to show that our climate commitment is action not words.
8:02 am
on my very first day in office i took action to return the u.s. to the paris agreement. to drive down the cost of technologies that will require us to do to achieve net zero emissions and working with the private sector on the next generation of technologies that will power clean economy of the future. over the next several days the united states will be announcing new initiatives to demonstrate our commitment to providing innovative solutions across various sectors. tackling hard and to abade industries. a short-term sprint to 2030, keep 1.5 celsius in reach. and marathon that will take us to the finish line and transform
8:03 am
the largest economy in the world to an equitable net zero world. i'm releasing the u.s. long-term strategy which presents a vision of achieving the united states' goal of net zero emissions economy wide by no later than 2050 and reinforces the nature of taking bold action in the decisive decade. we'll try to do our part when it comes to helping the rest of the world take action as well. we want to do more to help countries around the world especially developing countries accelerate their clean energy transition address pollution and ensure the world we all must share a cleaner, safer healthier planet. the united nations, at the united nations in september i announced that my administration is working with congress to quadruple our climate finance
8:04 am
report for developing nations by 2024. for adaptation efforts. this commitment is made possible to each of our collective goals and mobilizing $100 billion annually for climate finance. mobilizing finances to meet the incredible need is an all hands on deck effort. as other speakers today have private sector and multilateral development banks must also do their work to go from millions to billions to trillions in this transition. today, i'm also submitting a new adams communication laying out how we'll implement the global goal of adaptation and our first-ever contribution to the adaptation fund. our commitment is about more than just financing, but we're also going to support solutions
8:05 am
across the board. in the leadup to this gathering the united states joined our g7 partners to launch a build back better world initiative, we also reconvened the major economies forum to launch transformative actions and to raise ambitions and we're launching a global methane pledge to reduce methane emissions by at least 30% by the end of the decade. more than 70 countries have already signed up to support rapid reduction of methane pollution and i encourage every nation to sign off. the simple most effective strategy we have to slow global warming in the near terms. my friends, to recognize a better, more hopeful future for every nation has do its part with ambitious targets and specific plans to get there
8:06 am
especially the hey jar economies it's imperative we support developing nations so they can be our partners in this effort. right now, we're still falling short. there's no more time to hang back or sit on the fence or argue amongst ourselves, this is challenge of our collective lifetimes, the existential threat to human existence as we know it and every day we delay the cost of inaction increases. so let this be the moment that we answer history's call here in glasgow. let this be the start of the decade of transformative action. that raises the quality of life for people everywhere. we can do this. we just have to make a choice to do it. so let's get to work and thank you. we have an overwhelming obligation to the nations who
8:07 am
have in fact are not, have not done it, we have to help. god bless you all and may god save the planet. thank you. president biden on the world stage here in glasgow at the climate summit. he said, let this is b the moment. 200 nations represented at this summit. saying what used to be a once in a century storm now happens every couple of years. he talked about domestic policy we're doing, working on climate change, we know the reality of politics back on capitol hill. he doesn't have his two bills passed as of yet. he remains hopeful. national politics back home, the previous administration. he said i want to tell the world
8:08 am
we're back at the table acknowledging in his words that wasn't always the case, we hope to set the example now moving forward. i want to bring in cecilia vega. covering this summit and that was key there, cecilia, president biden trying to set the tone here that the u.s. will once again be at the forefront of this fight against climate change. >> david, he wants to put a positive spin on that, what he has to do here in scotland is convinced these allies that america is back, a reliable partner, back at the negotiating table and leading the way especially when it comes to climate change. the science is unanimous on this one. if rich countries like the united states don't act and these rich countries are responsible for 80% of the greenhouse gas emissions in the world right now, they have to do more in the coming years we'll be looking at these things we've been talking about for so long,
8:09 am
catastrophic weather events connected to global warming. countries like ours needs to do more to help poorer countries. something that the president is going to be laying out here in glasgow. the reality of what's happening back home. allies want to hear that the u.s. can do more. most experts believe even though the president is saying he'll still meet that goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions the reality is, his plan, albeit, historically huge, $555 billion right now, isn't enough to get him across the line to reach that goal. so they want to see action out of this country. >> how likely is that these two bills are going to be passed? some reporting out of washington those votes could come at least on the bipartisan bill this
8:10 am
week, what are you learning? >> reporter: well the president and this white house are increasingly optimistic e, he had a press conference yesterday, it sounded like he was giving the signal that we could see unity in his party. that a bipartisan infrastructure bill vote on tuesday. they want to point to a win back at home. >> lastly, before we go, one more question for you, you're covering the g20 in rome before going to edinburgh, some unhappiness, some displeasures afterward, in this fight against climate change were hoping for more concrete steps taken after the g20, any indication we'll hear these leaders go even further particularly from the wealthiest of nations here at
8:11 am
the global climate summit? >> reporter: david, this conference here in glasgow has been the called the last best hope to save the world from climate change. you heard the president there say this is an inflection point, we have to act now, we must do more, but i got to tell you, so many folks, so many experts and scientists were really disappointed by the outcome in rome and that conference, that g20 there was supposed to set the stage to what happens here in glasgow. failing to set a date to end the use of fossil fuels. china the world's biggest polluter wasn't even at the table. so, i think it remains to be seen whether they can actually do more than just talk, david. >> cecilia vega, our chief white house correspondent in
8:12 am
edinburgh. our coverage continues live on abc news live. a special edition of "world news tonight"er later here from glasgow. the u.n. is warning now they're the first climate-driven famine in madagascar. this is climate driven and you can see the need in the faces of those children. we'll have our entire team right here for "world news" a little later today. we return to regular programming. i'm david muir in electricity i. they're almost, like, towering troopers in the effort to slow global warming. according to the bureau of labor statistics, wind turbine service bureau of labor statistics, wind turbine service technician jobs
8:13 am
are going to increase by 68% by the year 2030. that makes them the second fastest growing occupation in the united states. for ava gonzalez working on a wind farm in texas has been a wind fall. >> the reason i made the transition from the oil and gas industry is because i realized that i wanted to start taking care of the environment. >> reporter: fueled by the biden administration's plan to deploy enough new offshore wind farms to power more than 10 million homes by the end of the decade, the wind business is booming. one study finds that the expansion of offshore wind farming could pump more than $100 billion into the global economy. >> they are doing it because it's an area that they can make a profit. so it's good business as well as good for the environment. >> reporter: so when you talk about the size of a wind turbine, the average one is about 300 feet high. that's like the statue of liberty, and from blade to blade, they can be more than a football field wide.
8:14 am
even though these look like huge wind turbines, and they are, but they're kind of babies in the industry. 2.3 megawatts. they're now putting in 5 and 6 megawatts and these are nothing compared to the behemoths going in off shore. we visited the company's first off shore wind farm in rhode island. the governor believes this will contribute to 100% renewable energy by 2030. >> wind is on the table right now with 50 wind turbines. that will be up and operating by 2023. 270,000 homes will be powered by that wind farm off the new england coast. >> reporter: seven new and far bigger offshore wind farms will break ground, or rather break water, in the next three years. that should create 80,000 new jobs, and enough electricity to hit that biden administration goal of powering 10 million homes with wind.
8:15 am
plus, all that clean energy cuts carbon emissions big time. the equivalent of taking nearly 17 million cars off the road for an entire year. >> i love my job. i get up every morning and i love what i do, and i don't see myself doing anything else. i want to leave a better tomorrow for my family. >> reporter: we're up here with wind technicians. it's amazing what they do every day, and i got to tell you that every part of a turbine is recyclable except the blades and whenever i post about this, that's the first thing people s see. there have been a lot of articles saying, hey, these will fill up landfills and where do those go? that is a huge issue right now. the good news, the national renewable energy laboratory has created a new resin that can make a 100% recyclable, reusable blade. not only is it going to be reusable, but they'll be able to make them on site. that will take away all the transportation issues and i'm sure many of you have seen them down the highway on these big trucks. it'll make it a whole lot
8:16 am
better. and i'll say, guys, i have to tell you too, there's no elevator up here so we did climb 300 feet. it's pretty intense. >> got a work out on top of everything else, you and matt this morning. okay, ginger. thanks very much. we'll move on now to my new hulu documentary, "the informant: fear and faith in the heartland." it's the story of an unlikely hero, dan day. he's a husband and father of two from garden city, kansas. he went to a friend's barbecue only to find it was a militia recruiting event, and he became a confidential fbi informant, and he spent months undercover putting his life in danger all to stop a domestic terror attack that would have rivalled the oklahoma city bombing. >> so when you went to these meetings, were you acting? >> yeah. yeah. i mean, i just threw myself into it, you know, and these guys were from kansas. i could relate, and i could have a conversation. >> my direction to dan from the beginning was, don't be the idea
8:17 am
planter, but if there is somebody that truly wants to do harm to another person, then we want to know about it. >> then i meet patrick stein. >> how would you describe patrick stein? >> i started talking to him about muslims, somalians and he just became irate. he would just go on, those cockroaches, and they just need to kill everyone. >> this is 312 mary street. it's mostly refugees. during the weekends, you'll see a lot of children playing outside, and barbecuing. typical american life. the mosque is over there. >> how would you maintain your muslim faith, your somali culture in the middle of garden city, kansas? >> you always find somalians gravitating towards each other. so they tried to build these little communities within
8:18 am
communities. >> it's like there was a world within a world in garden city. one world, everyone together is a community, and another world -- >> yeah. >> but you had no idea. >> mm-hmm. no idea that people can be so hateful. >> so you start to go out with patrick on some of these surveillance missions? >> right. we were going to do surveillance in garden city. we would meet at the dollar general store just, like, a block from the somalian apartments and the mosque, and two somalian women in their head dress came walking across this trail. he had his gun right inside the console, and that's when he was, like, i should just kill those cockroaches right now.
8:19 am
he had his gun, and he started to reach his gun up. >> you thought you were going to have to shoot him? >> i was pulling my gun out. he was pulling his up, and i'm, like, you know, a split second. i'm not going to let him kill these two innocent women because of who they are, or what they believe, what they look like. somehow i was, like, able to get him to chill out. >> so what was the plan? >> they were going to have cars with bombs in them, like, at certain points around the complex, and then across the road, at certain points. so all of these and this. >> they wanted to pack the bomb with razor blades, screws and sheet rock nails, and they said they wanted to do that to inflict as much damage to human bodies as they could. >> young, old, babies, grandmothers. >> they didn't care. >> again, this all started with
8:20 am
him going to a friend's barbecue and not knowing? >> friend's barbecue, had no idea. the fbi contacted him and he became an informant for 15 months. that bombing was set to take place the day after the 2016 elections. they were trying to time it so they didn't help hillary. it would have been the deadliest bombing since oklahoma city, and it was prevented by dan day and those incredible fbi agents, but this is also the story. you saw it there as well. grden city, kansas. small town, southwest kansas, but it's also a magnet for immigrants from all over the world, including somali community who see opportunity in the meat packing plants there, ad the strength and the resilience of that community is incredible, and the way that in some ways those communities have now come together in the wake of this, is also a big part of the story. >> your production company has hit the ground running with this. >> thank you. i'm really proud of this one. it's on hulu right now, "the informant: fear and faith in the heartland." now let's go back to ginger. >> reporter: thank you, george. it is chilly up here as it was
8:21 am
