6:48 pm
a record rate. the watery, created in 24 hours was enough to cover entirely an area, the size of florida in $525.00 centimeters of water. great chunks of the sheep collapse and drifted off into the open ocean. and it's been so warm, there's been rain, not snow on the summit for the 1st time on record. ology, there is nick clock traveled to a glacier to see 1st hand the effects of climate change and speak to scientists. studying the effects the arctic is warming twice as fast as the rest of the planet, which means the sea doesn't freeze as much as it used to. unless sea ice means more sunlight is absorbed into the ocean. warmer ocean melt the glasses faster from below, while warm air temperatures mel the glassy as an ice sheet faster from above. meaning more icebergs carved into the ocean, the ice sheet diminishes and as ongoing, sea level rise around the world. this
6:49 pm
is how it sounds and how it looks when the ice cap meets the sea and see the azure blue of the ice cell that's caused by the great pressure of the glassy or above. the ice cap is weighing down on the ice. and these continual cracks, izzy ice falls and collapses off into the water. and he see birds is wheeling around, feeding off these rich nutrients that a churned up by this continual flow of melt water that's coming off. the glasser and vast quantities because seuss the greenland ice sheet and the effects of it melting. so important to us all, there's a huge amount of scientific research going on. deep within a few or oceanographer lawrence mer, uses a pro to gather data from the water. in terms of climate change to with this we met
6:50 pm
measure how much fresh water is actually coming from the eye sheet. so we see in recent years, the amount of fresh water has increased as strongly because the melt has increased strongly, de know, so we measure temperature of the ocean was the ocean in many parts of creedence in direct contact with the eye sheet. so if the ocean warms up, than that the places will melt faster and faster and that's something we actually see. it's also important to take core samples from the fuel bed. everything that happens in the water column at some point, and so at the sea floor, and in spite of your ecosystem of the footwear industry. so again, we're interested in how a climate change would impact the food width of this re, shorts. at the end of every summer satellite track as establish how much arctic sea ice has been lost. this year it dropped to an area of just 4720000 square kilometers. it's 12 lowest extent on record. so sea ice is currently declining at
6:51 pm
a rate of around 13 percent each decade. and to put that into perspective, an area of sea ice equivalent to a country, the size of austria is being lost each year. the arctic is complex and hard to predict. oh, are we want to take in our light of the state department in washington where the secretary of state antony, blinking a speaking necessity. he came to the state department after a long and extraordinary career in the us armed forces. he was general tom, former chairman, the joint cheese when he walked into the oval office to be sworn in as our nation stopped him from that. after that he was mister secretary. he gave the state department the very best of his leadership, his experience, his patriotism. he gave us his decency and the state department loved him for secretary col trusted the career workforce here. he empowered them,
6:52 pm
he made sure that the desk officer who knew a particular country or issue most deeply was the one who got to brief him or the president. he told his staff that they didn't need to worry about getting them fancy lunches, and hamburgers and hot dogs were just fine. when he hopped down to the elevator, he pull others on with him. he didn't bother with formalities. and he wasn't overly concerned with hierarchy either. he wanted to hear from everyone. he walked around the building, dropping into offices, unannounced, asking what people needed, making sure they knew he was counting on them. and secretary powell was simply incompletely a leader. and he knew how to build a strong and united team. he treated people the way he expected them to treat each other. and he made sure that they knew he would always have their back. the result was that his people would walk through walls for him. secretary college career and
6:53 pm
the u. s. military is legendary. as a teenager, the city college of new york. not far from where he grew up in the south bronx, he joined r o t c. and after graduation became an army officer for 35 years, he was a professional soldier. he started in the infantry shirt to tours in vietnam, was stationed in south 3 in west germany, and oversaw operation, desert, storm and rack. for the time he retired from military, he was arguably the most respected and celebrated american in uniform. at that time, he received his 2nd presidential medal of freedom. this time from president clinton, who sat at the metal ceremony. today, a grateful nation observes the end of the distinguished career, the celebrates, 35 years of service and victory. victory for the united states military that gave young column pal a chance to learn and to grow and to lead. a victory for the military and political
6:54 pm
leaders who continued to elevate him based on their complete confidence and share respect. a victory for a nation well served and in a larger sense, a victory for the american dream. for the principle that in our nation, people can rise as far as their talent, their capacities, their dreams and their discipline will carry them. after that career, colin powell could have enjoyed a quieter life and may be dedicating himself full time to the organization. he founded america's promise to help young people from under represented communities like the one where he grew up. instead, he started a new career in diplomacy. and i believe secretary pals years as a soldier or what made him such an exceptional diplomat. he knew that war and military action should always be a last resort and to make that so we need our diplomacy to be as robust and well resource as possible. he called for increased funding for stake,
6:55 pm
which then as now was just a fraction of the pentagon's budget. he modernized the state department, putting a computer on every desk. and he believed deeply that his america was an exceptional nation. that we could and should lead with confidence and humility. and that the world was safer when the united states was engaged and its allies and partners were united. future military leaders and diplomats. we'll study colon pals, world like the powell doctrine that hammered out criteria for when and how the united states should use force and his support for expeditionary diplomacy, diplomats, and military working together to bring stability to high threat environments. he was a man of ideas, but he wasn't ideological. he was constantly listening, learning, adapting, he could admit mistakes. it was just another example of his integrity. as is
6:56 pm
probably evident by now. i was a huge admirer, secretary pass. i always will be. and he was very generous with me. this past 4th of july, all, we spent a few precious hours together talking about the state department. discussing all the challenges were confronting around the world. 2 things were clear. secretary pals, depth of knowledge about world events was unmatched. and he loved the state department and wanted it to thrive. so today is a sad day for us here in state, especially for all those who worked for and with secretary powell and will never forget the experience. our thoughts are with on the pollen, the entire family to day to every one who loved him. colon pal dedicated his extraordinary life to public service because he never stopped believing in america . and we believe in america in no small part because it help reduce someone like
6:57 pm
colon pop. thank you sir. i that was the u. s. secretary of state on to leave linkin paying tribute to the late secretary of state, colin powell whose died at the age of 84 from over 19 related complications as a secretary bank and was saying there a sad day at the state department. he praised a man of ideals, but not ideological who said was constantly listening and he has also said that power he is as a soldier is what made him as an unexceptional diplomat. let's bring in. kimberly hall kit. briefly. white house correspondent kimberly tributes. have been coming in today from both sides of the i yeah, there's no question and as you heard the secretary of state speaking there about colin powell, who once was a secretary of state himself, 2 things really come to mind and we're hearing this repeatedly as the tributes to
6:58 pm
colin powell continue to pour in one that he conducted himself with humility and the other that he was a mentor for so many that his actions and his willingness at times to admit mistakes, even ones that put a major blemish on his career as in be very public mistake, that he later acknowledged the argument for the case of weapons of mass destruction in iraq that led the united states to that u. s. invasion. oh was something that he regretted it is, is really a remarkable man. and the fact that he was able to acknowledge that mistake and, and also to really have such a long career in so many areas of public services, how he is being remembered. and so we're hearing from not only knows that work closely with him like the of the secretary of defense currently who says that he
6:59 pm
lost a friend and mentor. but even we are hearing from former press to appointed him in various roles. not just because of his it, sorry. do you want to ask me what i was gonna i was gonna talk about the fact that he's being praised as someone who broke the racial ceiling in america. that's quite significant. it's significant, but it's something that he never wore on his sleeve and that was the point that i was trying to make is that i in fact he, it was somebody who obviously broke the color barrier repeatedly, but let his work speak for itself. ah, he did not sort of swear out on a t shirt if you will. 1 the fact i am african american and this is the post that i got, he expected people to see him as a human being doing great work. and that is how he is remembered. but he's also remembered as being inspirational to so many african americans that came after him,
7:00 pm
who saw the out person of color in positions. they'd never seen a person of color before in that role. and so that's what made him really revered by not just blacks, but also white that they saw this person doing a job with humility and to lead by example. and as a result, you heard there from the secretary of state entity blinking, that people would move mountains for him as a result of his conduct and his actions. and to the very end, he was providing counsel for not just republicans, but also democrats who looked to him because he was a man of principle and duty to country before party r. kimberly. thank you very much. kimberly hawkins live there at the white house. ah, it is 16 hours g m t m fully by table in doha, colin powell, one of the leading figures of american men.
