[ inaudible ] >> he said it was clumsy. the situation that he is describing that was handled poorly and the other battle the president is dealing with here at home. not just an issue in the bay area. the reason in-n-out's refusal to check vaccinations is a problem. the fda gives a thumbs up. we will detail what needs to happen for the vaccine to be available to kids 5 to 11. the news at 5:30 starts right now. good friday. thanks for joining us. >> the president is in rome holding meetings before he attends the g20 summit. this is a pivotal trip. he is attempting to gather support electric other world leaders on issues like climate change, even while his own agenda is in limbo.
>> reporter: as the president prepares for the international spotlight this weekend, a warm reception for the first couple from pope francis. >> reporter: well timed before a difficult meeting with the president of france. the first face-to-face visit between the two leaders after the fallout between paris and washington over the deal with nuclear submarines and australia. >> what happened was -- [ inaudible ] >> reporter: while taking the world stage, the president has yet to strike a deal on his own sweeping social and climate agenda at home. the house postponed any vote on a bipartisan infrastructure bill until next week. after progressives refused to support it amid a standoff over the larger $1.75 trillion spending bill. >> clearly to my mind, it has some major gaps in it.
>> reporter: more pressure as the president wants to rally commitments from world leaders on issues like covid, climate change and helping the poor. >> what will the team around biden do next? what meetings could they set up going beyond the g20? >> reporter: tricky political maneuvering while the president struggles to make progress at home and abroad. governor newsom canceled next week's trip to the u.n. climate summit in scotland. he has family obligations. california will be represented by a delegation. instead of the governor, the lieutenant governor will lead it. the governor had been eager to present california's aggressive steps in addressing climate change, a ban on oil drilling and a proposed ban on the sale of new gas powered cars by 2025. speaking of governor newsom who just survived the recall
election, a lot of people have been questioning the recall. they said it's easy for small groups of activists to weaponize a recall and disrupt government. that's because holding a recall is easier in california than it is in most other states. last year it took petitions signed by 12% of the electorate to force a recall. kansas requires signatures from 40% of its voters. another proposal is to replace a recalled governor with the state's lieutenant governor, not a new candidate. a gun scare grounded flights at lax for an hour. it happened last night. police were called to reports of a person possibly armed. it was an altercation between two men. terminals were evacuated. 300 people fled to the tarmac. both men were detained. one was released. the other is scheduled foramen -- for a mental health evaluation.
no shots were fired. no one was hurt. what's next for in-n-out burger? it refuses to be the vaccine police. it will not check the status of the indoor diners. we have seen this played out in the bay area. now l.a. could be next. . >> reporter: as the clock ticks down for covid requires, the burger chain in-n-out has taken a stand against it. in san francisco and other bay areas where it is required. >> i heard about that. >> reporter: they have gone to drive-thru, no indoor dining. >> if that's the case, that's their business. however they want to run things. >> reporter: vaccine requirements do not extend to takeout, including from inside with a mask. that's been a work around here where in-n-out has several
restaurants with lines getting longer and now some demonstrations. >> stop the mandate. >> reporter: after san francisco temporarily shut down the in-n-out on fisherman's wharf said it was improper and offensive. >> if they don't enforce it, i will stop coming. i'm not going to be around someone that -- >> reporter: drive-thru? >> yeah. but i won't dine in. >> reporter: l.a. county requires proof of vaccination in bars and other locations. not restaurant dining rooms. the city of l.a. will in the measures set to take affect a week from monday. the director says, requiring vaccination in a higher risk setting is a sensible precaution. >> it's frankly everyone's responsibility right now to do everything we can. every single thing we can.
to prevent a devastating surge. >> in-n-out declined to offer. l.a. will not enforce proof of vaccine requirement until november 29. a covid vaccine for young children could be a week away. the fda approved pfizer's vaccine for children ages 5 to 11. it comes a couple of days after an fda advisory panel voted to recommend the vaccine for children. the dosage is one-third of the regular dose. pfizer said in trials it was nearly 91% effective at preventing symptomatic illness in kids. before shots can get into arms, the cdc advisory panel will need to recommend the vaccine and that meeting is set for next week. then the cdc director must sign off on those recommendations. facebook's corporate rebranding is not getting a like
from congresswoman alexandria ocasio-cortez. the new name coincides with scrutiny on facebook amid damaging new information from a whistle-blower. in the six years since signing the paris agreement with the goal of reducing its carbon footprint the u.s. increased emissions. this sets the stage for the climate conference in scotland sunday. as one scientist and activist explains there will be a gap between what activists want to see from world leaders and what they will actually get. >> this is what those working in the climate space are grappling with. what is it that would be impactful coming out of these world leaders meeting for next two weeks from november 1 to 11?
realistically, where will we find ourselves and what do we need to do? it hasn't kicked off yet. this isn't a one and done. this is mobilizing action now for the remainder of this generation and generations to come. we are locked into some amount of warming. we know that we need to really make sure it doesn't go past 2.7 degrees fahrenheit by the end of the century. that's critical. the main thing we hope to see come out of this is not just pledges but real blueprints, real commitments known as nationally determined contributions by each country, especially those who have been historically most notorious for polluting the planet, like the united states, like china, like india. these are the countries that need to show by example that there are changes being made domestically that then can serve as examples of what other countries around the world can do to also overhaul their sectors to reduce the carbon emission, country by country we
neat to see this happen. another point that we need to see come out is countries that have made money off of burping fossil fuels need to help and support more vulnerable countries to overhaul their infrastructure so they can become more resilient in the face of increasing impact of climate change. this is a multi-billion dollar ask that countries are making to richer countries to say, listen, we need support here. we are -- our national sovereignty is at risk. we need your help. those are two key things that we need to see come out of this. >> in 2015, we had the paris accord. everyone feeling optimistic after that. i want to ask you, what's different now? we are six years out from that. we saw a report that said we are nowhere on track, nowhere near meeting the goals we set 2015 in paris. is something different this time? can we expect something different from these politicians now? what's different in the world
now? >> that's a fair question. that's a really good question. it's been six years since the paris accord. we are actually burning more -- putting more carbon into the atmosphere. the united states is actually increasing carbon emission. there was a pause, a dip in carbon emissions because of covid-19 when the world was halted to a screeching halt. so we saw that there was a dip, 5% to 6% dip in carbon emission. then we came back into action and carbon emissions kept going again. we need to see a real overhaul across countries. >> watch this entire story right now on nbc lx. watch it on xfinity channel 185. speaking of climate change, atmospheric rivers, we had one this past sunday. we could see more in the future. what are they? how often do they happen? the answers are on our website.

viewers get their money. >> i get it. we have some recent cases where we knocked on the door and got folks more than just money. >> good friday evening. neither little goblins nor big monsters frighten up. david was howling about a $32 voucher. he found the money had disappeared. he says he messaged the store but they ghosted him. he called us to scare up a refund. the store investigate and mailed him a new $32 gift card. a mysterious $500 credit card payment. a dead end. nothing changed. we resurrected his dispute. the credit card money returned his 500 bucks.

san francisco, 55. the north bay at 51. daytime highs tomorrow, drop off from 5 to 12 degrees. instead of upper 70s, we are back down to 65 in santa rosa. concord, 68. in the coastline, lower 60s. know for outside lands, it's the chilliest there. you are closest to the fog. you gotta wear those layers. 60s expected tomorrow. once you move into halloween, a dry forecast across the bay area. on the mild side at 67 at 3:00 p.m. after that, it gets cold with plenty of 50s. we have two storm systems moving our way next week. first one monday, a tenth to half inch. the second one wednesday night into thursday. that looks like it could be the stronger one with a quarter to one inch.
