when the sox won the pennant in '67 and ten years later, he's playing for the team. imagine what a thrill that must have been for him. >> must have been. going back home. a lot going on with the president in scotland for a key climate summit. cnn's coverage continues right now. >> good monday morning to you. i'm jim sciutto. >> i'm erica hill. president biden's climate goals at home and abroad put to task. kicking off two weeks of talks the goal it to limit global warming and decarbonize the planet. experts call this meeting the world's last best chance to address the climate crisis. >> this comes on the heels of an unsettling report from the world
meteorological association says climate change propelled earth into "uncharted territory." new data shows the past seven years are on track to be the warmest on record while this year alone the global sea left rise accelerated to a new high happening before our eyes. ahead of the summit the white house announced a plan to get the u.s. to net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 202050. kaitlan collins is following all of us this edinburgh. president bide listen speak shortly. i wonder reality check here. what are the expectations? hard commitments? >> reporter: >> that's the big question. doesn't seem there are hard commitments yet. the overall message at the white house is trying to have president biden portrayed to the other world leaders the united states is serious about confronting climate change .
you've seen john kerry meeting with other world leaders and deputies to talk about this. that is essential lir the overarching message of this speech you'll hear from president biden coming up. not just what the united states is doing but part of this is the global effort. you've heard the white house say over the last few hours they've been critical of china, chinese president kim jong-un is not here, the world's big e polluter, in addition to russia. vladimir putin instead delivering a pre-recorded message. the chinese are outliers, the white house says they need to step up their commitment. could you see president biden trying to take advantage of the fact the chinese aren't here to take that leadership role
essentially of course we know the president is coming into this with a weakened hand than he hoped he'd enter the summit with, his agenda back at home. we've seen how it has been scaled back significantly where it was initially because of opposition from senator joe manchin and others, though the president will come in and say we have got this agreement that he believes jim is going to get passed this week hundreds of billions of dollars to fight climate change, significant far from what the president initially hoped to be walking in here with. >> kaitlan collins, so good to have you. capitol hill in a virtual
meeting among progressives sunday, most of them signal they are likely to back the bipartisan infrastructure bill and the social safety net bill when they come up for a vote likely sometime after tuesday. >> that is an important development. one of the sticking points is the signoff moderate senators joe manchin and kyrsten sinema. lauren fox is on capitol hill this morning. we know one of the things progressives are working on is to get drug pricing reform, further medicare expansion into that spending package. where are we in terms of negotiations, lauren? >> reporter: the most significant development over the weekend, progressives arguing they are ready to move ahead with both a vote on the bipartisan infrastructure bill and that larger social safety net package. that is significant. over the course of the last several weeks, that has been one
of the key drivers for why biden didn't have something to deliver when he went abroad. now, one of the other question marks is what is going to be included in this larger spending bill. there are items of course that had been left on the table and a couple of things democrats are trying to negotiate. one of them like you pointed out is prescription drugs and i'm told that house speaker nancy pelosi had a conversation with arizona moderate senator kyrsten sinema over the weekend to talk about this issue. negotiations have been unfolding for several weeks on this issue. originally it was not in the president's framework. democrats making a final push to try to include it, that is one of the sticking points. another one of the sticking points of course medicare expansion and that would be included. bernie sanders wants to include both vision as well as hearing, hearing is in the bill but vision is not.
something he's fighting for. a few moving pieces but as the president is abroad, this is as close as he's been yet to getting his agenda through congress. the rules committee which is a special house committee that sets the parameters of the debate on the floor, they were scheduled to meet today. the expectation is that meeting is going to get pushed as the negotiations continue, but i am told from sources behind the scenes that should not be taken as a sign negotiations aren't progressing but they are getting close. jim and erica? >> very close, lauren fox, thanks so much. joining us is rachael bay, coauthor of "politico playbook" and zolan young, white house cor s respondent for the "new york times." perhaps overcome by the emotion rachel of another important week, reality check for us. we have banned the phrase deadline on this broadcast. so many have been set and broken through the negotiations. where do they stand and what is
the most likely date now for a vote? >> hi, we've heard this before. how many times, this is just the reality of the situation, sausage making is messy and oftentimes when lawmakers pass these big bills, there's a lot of false starts as we've seen, i'm skeptical about this week and the reality is they have made a lot of progress. they have a framework moderates signaled they will support, the fact that progressives are saying they can also swallow this, when their own priorities have been scaled back so much is actually a huge step forward. now they've got to write this bill, they have the prove significances that you were discussing they're working on medicare prescription drugs, final push for paid leave. they're making progress and have to get a cbo score do the numbers add up, how much is this going to cost, is everything paid for? they need the president back in town probably to get the final votes. pelosi only has a three-vote margin, she can only lose three
democrats on build back better and the president is out of town right now obviously. he's not going to be back until wednesday at the earliest. will this move through the house? maybe this week, probably not. senators like to make their own changes, too. sit tight. it's going to be a while. we're going to be talking about this for a little bit now. >> we're not done yet, although i understand how it gets emotional, jim, we're happy to have you back here to talk about it. when we look at where we are, the point that rachel just said, we have to get through the senate, there is still not a firm yes from senators manchin and sinema. is there a sense that when president biden is back in town, he's going to pick up where he left off? >> it's tough to say. you look at the president's comments in recent days. he wants this to be passed. he wants to point to progress being made by the end of the week. he's saying, he said he would like to see that at some point. if we don't see this, you have
to think that of course the president as well as officials from his office of legislative affairs, some of his top officials will be engaged in congress trying to rally those moderate democrats in particular to pretty much buy in and give their sign-off, it was just a short while ago we saw him invite senator manchin to delaware as well to talk over some of the final points of this bill and as rachel was saying, while progress has been made and there are ongoing negotiations over prescription drug pricing, there are still reasons to look at this and still wonder when this is going to be passed. you have some house democrats also saying that they want immigration reforms in this bill as well, whether or not that's going to go in after the parliamentarian ruling will be something to watch. senator sanders saying he'd like something, a statement from senators manchin and sinema saying they are supporting this package as well. there's still things to watch but you have to think that if the president comes back and
this hasn't passed it's priority number one at this point. >> rachel, just going big picture for a moment and yes the negotiations have been a mess, they've dragged out the internal divisions among democrats very real and very public, if and when they get to that point, and the betting in this town despite everything seems to be there this is a not insignificant piece of legislation, is it not, when you look at benefits for instance on child care but also how they pay for it, directing their fire in effect at the wealthiest of americans which is something that frankly you've heard from republicans and democrats through the years but has not happened. >> yes, if they get both of these bills passed and it does look like they'll get there, it's a question of when and not if it's a huge accomplishment for democrats. this is exactly what they set out to do. they have the pandemic relief bill $2 trillion worth of spending earlier this year, have their $1 trillion infrastructure bill which is going to rebuild the roads and bridges, that's huge and these sort of family provisions that they wanted to
work on for a long time. so that's a lot of money, it's definitely historic in terms of the changes they're trying to create, but they're not there yet and i think one of the reasons we always talk about, is it going to happen this week or not what deadline is this, deadline number three and four. one of the reasons they make these self-imposed deadlines is having covered congress over a decade, nothing gets done until you create the deadlines. they create drama, they try to get to them and fail, each time they get to one they make a little bit of progress and that's the reason why you have sort of failed headlines that they didn't do it but they have to do this in order to get to that big victory at the end. it's sort of part of the prosis. >> a frustrating part of the process, right? thank you for covering it and the people watching it, rachael bait and zolan youngs, thank you. up next new york's police and fire departments warning of staffing shortages as a vaccine

if new york city workers who haven't been vaccinated against covid-19 show up for work this morning they could be sent home on paid leave. mayor de blasio's mandate gave them until friday to show proof of at least one dose of a covid vaccine. >> many city workers despite the medical data have protested the
mandate while thousands have applied for a special accommodation like a religious exemption and new york scrambled to prepare for possible staffing shortages at fire, police and city departments, other city departments although the vaccination rate among fire and police has gone up, it's nudged up. en cen's polo sandoval joins us with the latest outside a fire station in new york. the fdny has not shared publicly the data. what are they saying whether they'll have trouble filling in all the slots this morning? >> reporter: it is too soon to say what the impacts will be. over the weekend that he had to remove from operation some individual fire companies not confused with firehouses. you have multiple firehouses throughout the city that have several companies in them,
engine and ladder companies and at this point the fire department have not closed any firehouses but earlier this morning in the effort to call on the city to hold back from the mandate we heard from the firefighters association not just to put this on pause but reassess the situation here, give senior members an opportunity to potentially retire if they choose to. you heard them say there is still a possibility according to the firefighters union that we could see some of the operations affected. here is what they said earlier this morning >> most firehouses are an engine and ladder. if they close one company technically the firehouse is not closed. if they close the engine the fire company expected to bring the hose to put the fire out is not there, if they close the ladder, that's the company whose job is to locate the fire and locate the victims and rescue the victims. that service will not be
available. to say the firehouse is not closed is accurate. to say fire coverage won't be affected is not true. >> reporter: over the weekend we heard from new york's fire commissioner who said they did notice a sharp increase in the sick leave taken. the commissioner think that's anger will the mandate. look at the latest vaccination figures, fdny 80%, a sharp increase from a couple of days ago and 84% of the police department in compliance with the mandate a majority of the first responders are now in splins with the man tate and able to respond. city wide about 22,000 city employees across the board that have not been vaccinated and potentially sent home on unpaid
leave today. >> polo sandoval with the latest, thank you. look where vaccinations stand across the board the cdc reporting a rise in covid-19 vaccinations. two-thirds of americans have received at least one dose so if you look at the numbers of people eligible, those ages 12 and up, 58% of the population fully vaccinated. 67% at least one dose in. >> keep in mind this excludes the portion of the population not approved to get it including children. the cdc is expected to sign off on emergency use authorization for the pfizer covid-19 vaccine for children aged 5 to 11 years old soon, of course making many more people eligible. joining us to discuss dr. andy shane, chief of the division of pediatric infectious disease emery health care of atlanta. thanks for joining us this morning. it's interesting to watch those figures because they've been
relatively flat in terms of growth but ticked up a bit as the vaccine mandates have gone into effect. do you believe the vaccine mandates helped push some people over the line? >> that's a great question. we hope people would opt to receive a vaccine because of choice, vaccine mandates can be very helpful in making sure those individuals who may have hesitancy or not sure they want to be vaccinated requiring a vass nation as a condition of employment or to participate in an activity may actually help to increase vaccination rates. >> when we look at the vaccines themselves, pfizer authorized for ages 12 and up approved for 16 and up, moderna we learned
over the weekend the fda said they want more time to review the data for 12 to 17-year-olds talking about the risk of heart inflammation. what should we take away from that? >> this shows our safety signals and observations are working, this is what happens when we pay close attention to vaccines and how they are being administered and there's monitoring and follow-up after vaccination is available. this tells us our vaccine safety signals are work so long we need to look and pay some attention and understand if this really is something that we need to pay attention to or if it's something that is not, does not need additional attention. >> looks like we're just days away from approval for the
pfizer vaccine for children aged 5 to 11. what should people take into account as they begin to schedule those first shots and get into the process here and do you expect them to have a lot of when adult vaccinations were approved there was a big rush. do you expect something similar? >> that's a great question. actually the government and many state health departments have been proactive and have begun thinking about operationally how this will be this is different than dose given to adults and older children so there will be operational issues that have to
be taken into consideration. there's a tremendous amount of effort in advance so we're anticipating a smooth rollout. >> we look forward to a smooth rollout and rollout in general. dr. andi, thank you. still ahead the ban on abortions in texas headed to the supreme court. what justice also hear next hour and how that could impact the rules. that's up next. >> you want to hear that story, big impacts. plus moments away from the opening bell on wall street, futures are higher this morning, starting off a fresh trading month, after a rough september stocks ended october on a high note. the s&p and nasdaq both ended the month with record highs yet again, gaining around 7% just for the month, that's the best month in the year, remarkable. the dow had its best month since march.

minutes from now the texas abortion ban heads to the supreme court with enormous implications for the second largest state in the country but also for the nation as a whole. that extremely restrictive law bans abortions after six weeks with no exceptions, none for rape or incest. the nine justices will not be discussing if the law violates roe v. wade. >> the question they're trying to answer is whether a state can
evade federal court review delegating enforcement of the abortion ban to private citizens. joining us now university of texas school of law professor steve vladox. you say the court this is again not about the court deciding whether the six-week abortion ban is constitutional, but how it's being played out. give us broad picture. what should we really be looking for in these oral arguments? >> erica, it's the right question and i think the short answer is br are the justices with the decisive votes. where is justice kavanaugh and amy coney barrett, are they worried texas has made it impossible for individuals to vindicate an existing constitutional right or focused on the traps texas created and worried about undoing the traps, opening the door to lawsuits. which those two justices are
leaning i think will tell us a lot about how these two cases are going to come out. >> it's a remarkable precedent set here by texas, because basically does it set up other state legislatures using the same method to get around constitutional, to enforce an abortion ban, could you delegate to private citizens to enforce actions against desegregation, prior decisions had been granted to the american people. >> that is the slippery slope. it is the next move for california to do it to guns. that's why this is so not about abortion. some respects everyone's focused on the abortion piece. it's important but more important to see why because it's technical if states can
frustrate our constitutional rights, if states can pick and choose which rights can be meaningfully enforced in court then our rights don't mean that much. our rights are subject to the whims of the legislatures of each state. in that context we wouldn't have one federal constitution, we'd have 50. that's not a system sustainable in the long-term. >> as everybody's watching this so closely, we see this expedited time line to review the case. what does that mean when we could hear from the justices? is that expedited as well? >> this is, today is ten days since the court agreed to take up these cases. that's the shortest period between a grant of review and oral argument since bush versus gore in december of 2000. i think we'll hear fairly quickly, probably not today but sometime early next week because they understand the implications one way or the other and partly because i think they want to resolve this question abortion
provider in texas or the federal government can challenge this law before next month, december when they're set to hear an equally important case about roe itself coming out of mississippi. >> whether the court decides on the issue of this enforcement mechanism here as opposed to making a qualitative decision on roe v. wade is the effect the same in if you allow the mechanism to go forward, that roe v. wade decision and the right that came from you as you say doesn't mean a lot in states that would pass similar legislation. >> that's right. i think that's why back in september when the supreme court allowed the law to go into effect by a 5-4 vote so many thought that was a harbinger. if there weren't five justices to block a law like this, that spelled trouble for roe versus wade. the key is not just that a ruling against the providers
that are ruling against the federal government would allow this restrictive abortion law to remain in effect and other states -- the problem it wouldn't stop with abortion. obviously folks have strong views about abortion and the constitutional right the supreme court has recognized to abortion but the cases the supreme courts hear are about so much more than that and that's why it's going to be critical to see if conservative justices who we know are hostile to roe versus wade and the constitutional right the supreme court recognized they're in are more hostile the meeting of the constitutional rights are up to state legislators and not the court. >> so much interest and we'll be watching it closely. great to have you with us this morning. steve, thank you. >> enormous effect for people's lives. still ahead, election day looming in virginia, a look at republican glenn youngkin's momentum in the governor's race and regardless of the outcome the new lieutenant governor will
for people living with h-i-v, keep being you. and ask your doctor about biktarvy. biktarvy is a complete, one-pill, once-a-day treatment used for h-i-v in certain adults. it's not a cure, but with one small pill, biktarvy fights h-i-v to help you get to and stay undetectable. that's when the amount of virus is so low it cannot be measured by a lab test. research shows people who take h-i-v treatment every day and get to and stay undetectable can no longer transmit h-i-v through sex. serious side effects can occur,
including kidney problems and kidney failure. rare, life-threatening side effects include a buildup of lactic acid and liver problems. do not take biktarvy if you take dofetilide or rifampin. tell your doctor about all the medicines and supplements you take, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or if you have kidney or liver problems, including hepatitis. if you have hepatitis b, do not stop taking biktarvy without talking to your doctor. common side effects were diarrhea, nausea, and headache. if you're living with hiv, keep loving who you are. and ask your doctor if biktarvy is right for you. sustainability is essential to creating a better tomorrow. that's why cisco is committed to achieving net zero emissions by 2040. and we believe our smart buildings solutions can help. providing power to reduce emissions, intelligence to eliminate waste, and collaboration tools that help the workplace and the planet. between meeting human needs and a sustainable future, there's a bridge. cisco, the bridge to possible.
richmond, virginia. virginia was an easy win for president biden in 2020. this one based on the public polling shows to be a lot closer. how did it get to this point? >> i think this is why republicans are excited. this has been eight years of democratic control the governor's management. they're excited youngkin is closing strong and polls are tight. this is a tight race could go either way and that's why you saw candidates crisscrossing the state over the weekend. you saw youngkin in northern virginia and western virginia, much more conservative voting bloc and governor mcauliffe spent a lot of time in the tidewater region around norfolk, portsmouth and northern virginia suburbs that are vote rich he feels like he has to do well in.
the last day of early vote was on saturday. 1.1 million virginians already cast their ballot. all the swings we've seen the momentum, the polls, a lot of that can be negated by the fact that 1.1 million ballots have already been banked. that means the last-minute pushes and swings we see the ads we see campaigns, yes they matter because there's a lot of voting on election day but not as critical as if there was no pre-election voting. jim? >> again one other thing a lot of people are looking at, we talk about the governor's race here, but whoever, whatever the outcome the lieutenant governor in virginia will be making history. democrat jayala and others women of color to be second in command in virginia, that is significant in any state but specifically the vrng the city behind me used to be the capital of
confederacy. the commonwealth is developing with race in the last few years. the significance of either one winning on tuesday will be a lot to the commonwealth given the history that has been addressed. you've seen the confederate monuments, currently in richmond taken down behind the camera was one that was taken down that was a confederate monument to sold why ares and sailors. the history overlaying the race. they're different countries. ayala has been outspoken on covid making it central to her race. winston sears is in an interview with me would not tell me whether she was vaccinated or not. they're dramatically different candidates but history will be made no matter what on tuesday. >> it will, dan merica, thank you. just a reminder to join us for cnn's live coverage tomorrow night of election night in america and of course we are not just talking about virginia. cnn also following the races for new jersey governor, new york
city mayor and many more. our special coverage begins tomorrow at 6:00 p.m. eastern. american airlines canceled another 250 flights this morning as the company deals with staffing shortages and weather issues that have disrupted schedules for days. >> more than 1,900 flights have been canceled since last friday. here's a look one of the lines there, travelers waiting in miami, florida. american says help is on the way, cnn aviation correspondent pete montine has been following this for us. thousands of flight attendants should be back on the job today. how long though for the airline to catch up at this point? >> that's right, erica, overturning from pandemic time off. the help can't come soon enough. it will see considerable improvement in its schedule starting today but just look at the latest numbers of cance cancellations. american canceled about 262 flights so far today, 1,058 on sunday, 548 on saturday, 343 on
friday, all this amounts to one in every ten american airlines fl flights canceled over that four-day period. american says the problems started back on thursday when bad weather and high winds hit its major hub at dfw in dallas, that started this chain reaction of cancellations that left people and planes out of position. david seymour sent a letter to the workforce saying he wanted to build certainty into the operation to the airline began proactively canceling flights left thousands strand in long lines across the country. listen now. >> i don't understand why it's canceled. i heard they don't have enough staff. you sold me a product. i paid for it. now it's your job to get me there >> we were waiting to board the aircraft and they said the flight was canceled. >> weigh want to go back home
but don't want to lose the money we paid for at the resort. >> southwest airlines had a similar issue only three weeks ago when it had to cancel 2,000 flights. it blamed air traffic control issues. airlines are a lot smaller than they were going into the pandemic. fewer workers services fewer airplanes exacerbating the problem. d.o.t. data shows airlines as an entire industry are about 7,000 people smaller than they were in 2019. >> pete you mentioned southwest airlines, they've got another issue to deal with internal investigation against one of their pilots for using a frankly offensive phrase. tell us what the latest is on that? >> the phrase is called let's go brandon and the right uses it essentially as a facsimile for the words f joe biden, this was said on a southwest flight from
houston to albuquerque on friday. southwest is acknowledging that this issue happened and released a statement saying southwest does not condone employees sharing their political opinions while on the job. southwest is conducting an internal investigation into the recently reported event and addressing the situation with any employee involves and southwest continues to remind all employees that public expression of personal opinions while on duty is unacceptable. but this is hardly the only incident, maybe just one that only passengers have heard. united airlines the union that represents its pilots issued a statement to pilots saying they should not use the emergency radio frequency that pilots used to report may day to use it as a political pulpit. i'm a pilot. i have heard it over the would. fjb i heard the words flying yesterday. this is a problem a lot of people are experiencing, maybe only passengers are starting to realize it.

this happened. they gathered records, emails, text messages from santa fe county as well as from communications from the "rust" production. i want to share here a quote from their article, what alec baldwin said as he was doing this move. the "l.a. times" says he placed his hand on the colt .45 revolver in its holster. i guess i'm going to take this out, pull it and go bang. as we previously reported, this was a rehearsal, and assistant director dave halls had told investigators he had handed baldwin a cold gun. director joe souza told us he heard the term cold gun on set and this was a rehearsal where baldwin was practicing a cross draw, where the shooter pulls the weapon from the holster from the opposite side of the body from the draw arm.
so we knew some of that context, but this is the first time we're hearing an exact quote from alec baldwin has reported by the "l.a. times." of course as you said on saturday, baldwin spoke in front of cameras for the first time saying also that he was friends with hutchins and that he even took her and director souza to dinner when he arrived on set and this is very devastating for everyone. >> natasha, thank you. we are now just moments away from the start of jury selection, the trial of kyle rittenhouse. he's the illinois teenager who shot and killed two people, wujded another with an ar-15-style rifle during a protest in kenosha, wisconsin, last summer. >> he drove from his home to take part in this, carrying a semiautomatic rifle with him. the trial tests the legality of vigilante killings as defense lawyers claim that rittenhouse, 17, was acting in self-defense. omar jimenez is live in kenosha this morning. omar, talk about this litmus
