4:52 am
use to try and help save our planet, whether it's looking at greenhouse gases, looking at how we can help reduce drought to even saving some of our endangered species. so what's happening today is just the tip of the iceberg, if you will, and that as we know the iceberg is rapidly melting. >> and during that conference, al, you talked about your passion for helping to inform the public on climate change, and one of your big messages is that everyone can change, be the agent to help change our environment and climate change. >> yes, that's right, kari. because look, you look at the climate crisis, and you might be overwhelmed. what can i do as one person? well, the fact of the matter is, there are a lot of little steps you can take, whether it's by changing your landscaping in front of your house, so that it doesn't use as much water to the products you buy, to even something just as simple as trying to bike for the short trips as opposed to getting in
4:53 am
your car, if it's not powered by electricity, if it's a fossil-fueled vehicle, maybe you don't use it quite as much. maybe one day a week you start biking to work or biking to do some sort of earned. it's all those little things that add up to the big things, and holding your local politician and state representatives and federal representatives' feet to the fire as far as taking steps to mitigate climate change, to support legislation that does that. >> yes, we do all have to keep that top of mind, al. thank you, and your climate, for all of the work that you do and we appreciate what you're doing for us this morning. al will have more of this coverage during the "today" show, the third hour of "today" and he's also participating in another event this morning as we talk with google's former ceo, eric schmitt, about the role of technology that it has to help save our climate crisis. if you would like to watch this conference in real time, head

4:57 am
the warriors are suddenly without their coach for a while because steve kerr tested positive for covid. the news took the team by surprise shortly before last night's playoff game in memphis. kerr said he wasn't feeling well on the ride to chase center, and that test turned positive. not clear how long he will be out or whether he will travel with the team for tomorrow's game five in memphis. i would think not. assistant coach mike brown took over, but remember, he just took the head coaching job for next season in sacramento. on the court last night, the warriors were good when it mattered. they looked pretty average on offense and -- we're being nice about that. the defense did hold up, keeping the game close until the end. the warriors took their first lead of the game in the final minute of a steph curry free-throw. they win the game 101-98 and
