i'm really angry at the grownups and the adults that have been knowingly taking actions to cause climate change. they need to know that they are threatening youths' future and killing people by doing this. i am from florida and i'm 12 years old. there's more hurricanes and those -- all those things, they threaten my island's future. if this area got destroyed, that would be devastating for me. i'm part of a lawsuit with 20
7:23 pm
other youth plaintiffs who are suing the u.s. government for their actions to cause climate change. basically we are asking the u.s. government to put a recovery plan into place. after i gave a speech, people came up to me and they oftentimes say that, like, i give them hope. i don't want their hope. i want them to be taking action. [ cheers and applause ] >> we're back in the nation's capitol. we're still getting images from the climate strike around the world. thousands took to the streets of paris, france. one of the many reasons this issue has become so urgent is that so many of the effects are so clear around the globe, from greenland to montana to mississippi. we have frorts all those locations and we begin in greenland where al roker traveled to see the effects of climate change firsthand. >> greenland, a massive island at the top of the world and one
7:24 pm
of the most remote locations on earth. this breath-taking landscape is ground zero for climate change where the arctic is warming twice as fast as anywhere else on the planet. i traveled there to see the devastating effects firsthand. this is what's left of the glacier. this glacier guide has witnessed its retreat over the past several years. >> what did this glacier used to looking. >> the glacier height was at the height of the mountain right there. so this to me is a very big volume of water that today is in the ocean and is not on land anymore. >> sounds very hollow almost where we're walking. >> yeah, but it's full for at least 100 meters below us of ice. >> as we continued on, i got to witness climate change in real time. >> that's a chunk of the glacier breaking off.
7:25 pm
>> it's very important here standing on ice to realize that we are on the first step of a domino effect that then later we call climate change. >> new york university professor david holland is studying the warming ocean's impact on the glaciers. in 2018 professor holland and his wife capture ago spectacular event, a four-mile wide--mile deep and a mile-long chunk of ice breaking away from the hell heim glacier, dumping 10 billion tons of ice into the ocean. i joined him on board his research boat where he and his team spend up to a month at sea gathering data along greenland's southeast coast. >> is the rate of warming something you're looking at? >> so when we look out on the ocean, it's very cold water. the top several hundred feet are all coming from the arctic ocean
7:26 pm
and pouring south but surprisingly water from the tro tropics is lying under this. when it hits them, it melts them like crazy. >> today's mission, retrieve then redeploy a morring that's been sitting on the ocean floor for the past year, taking daily readings of temperature, is a lynnty, and depth. >> we've been observing the deeper waters are warming, and we're trying to find out why. they come in here and they go up that fyord. they light them oppositn fire. >> once we raise it from the deep, data is removed and batteries checked. warm water was detected, but the actual rise in temperature will take up to a year to analyze. meanwhile, it's time to resubmerge.
7:27 pm
the warmer water is leading to the melting of the glaciers. >> al roker, nbc news, greenland. >> greenland is on the front line of climate change. closer to home in mississippi, flooding this spring left parts of the delta under water for months. msnbc correspondent sher main lee joins me from vicksburg, mississippi, with more. >> what happens up river has a downriver effect. few places is that more evidence than along the banks of the mississippi river where historic flooding has had devastating consequences. we learned firsthand how connected with people's lives are to the fate of the muddy mississippi river. the mississippi river is a source of life, commerce, and recreation for millions of people. from minnesota to louisiana, the river stretches more than 2,300
7:28 pm
miles, fed by waterways in 31 states that encompass 41% of the country. but this year many communities were hit with unprecedented rainfall. in the mississippi's name sake state, the river overflowed its banks, swamping cities like greenville with the worst flooding in a century. the mayor says the flood of 2019 is reminiscent of the most devastating flood in mississippi history. >> it brings me back to the 1927 flood when the flood came, it was poor folks and black folks who were left and displaced for days and for months. and now we have the flood of 2019. here i am as a black mayor, but i can see the effect that it's having on poor folks and black folks. communities like this have been historically neglected. and then when you have high flood events like this, they get hit hard. so when it rains around the country, it pours here. >> it wasn't just the cities that flooded.
7:29 pm
hundreds of thousands of acres of farmland in the mississippi delta were inundated, leaving farmers like ed jenkins with unusable land. >> this has probably been the worst one i've had in my 30 years of farming. >> this has been the worst. >> this has been the worst. >> does it give you concern about what might happen next year or the year after that? >> wish i was old enough for retirement. >> normally when the mississippi river floods, the army corps of engineers tries to redirect compentency water through spillways. but this year the river was so swollen that the corps opened the spillway for longer than it ever had, dumping an estimated 10 trillion gallons of water into lake pontchartrain. all of that water ended up off the mississippi gulf coast, causing extraordinary harm to marine life. >> we had the largest number of
7:30 pm
dolphins die. we had 143 dolphins and about 195 sea turtles, which are the most endangered in the world. >> what's killing the dolphins? >> the primary factor is the river water coming through the spillway. it has mud, clay, insect sides, what we have seen basically an aquatic hurricane, many animals with fresh-water lesions. these are saltwater animals exposed for a long period of time to fresh water, and the lesions become sores. >> in the era of climate change, this is the new normal. more rain, more flooding, more damage to communities across mississippi. those whose lives are rooted by the water will have to prepare for what comes next. >> we've had hurricanes, katrina
7:31 pm
was obviously one of the worst, but i have never seen a situation where one event would totally wipe out the seafood industry and the tourism industry. there's a governors race on. the two guys running for governor are claiming they're going to help out, but you don't hear the word climate change on their platform in mississippi. elected officials are so afraid that they're going to lose their voter base if they even mention the word. they can't even say the word climate change. >> while many politicians are reluctant to face the issue of climate change head on, people here on this river whose lives are rooted here say they think about their futures and what will be left for their children. most of all, chris, they want this issue to be taken seriously before it's too late. >> trymaine, that was an incredible report. do they think there's a future
7:32 pm
for them there, people obviously have been living with water in the delta for as long as they have been down there. it's obviously things are getting worse down there. how do they think about whether they can stay? >> you know, i've talked to a number of people. the steamboat captain, a number of farmers who are generations into this lifestyle and this likelihood. they say they're not urging their sons and daughters to go into this business. it's not just about money, it's not just about business, it's about their livelihoods, their traditions. the mississippi delta, the land is so rich and fertile, but it is a former wetland, so conservationists say in order to restore what's lost, we have to restore the wetlands. but this is home, people are living out of this ground. now they're hoping something will disrupt the current course of things, chris. >> correspondent trymaine lee live for us in mississippi. that was fantastic. thank you very much. some 2,000 miles to the north of mississippi near the canadian border in montana, the
7:33 pm
glaciers are literally disappearing from glacier national park because of the warming climate. cal perry is in glacier national park and joins me tonight with more. >> it's in the name, glacier national park. it's why people come to visit. when the park was established in 1910, there were over 100 glaciers. today only 25 remain. glaciers national park is in many ways a climate change marker. >> if you want to see glaciers in glacier national park where "n" a state where they're impressive, it's better to come now than later. >> if this park is how our natural wonders are standing up against clierjs we're in trouble. according to the park's own literature, northwest montana is warming twice as fast as the rest of the planet. the before and after photos displayed by the national park service, a frightening example of the now in climate change. for dan pagery, who measures for
7:34 pm
the geological society. >> it's on the t-shirt now. >> yes, we do science for a changing world and the world does change. we're going to keep doing the science to document that. so the u.s. mission is to freeway best science for the decision-makers and the public to figure out how to best manage a park like this going into an uncertainty future. >> this professor studies forest fires andent model. her work is consumed by the changing climate. >> it's changed my entire way i have to do my research. i never had any intent in studying climate change. 80% of my work is climate change driven because i don't really have an option. >> here in the northwest corner of the park, people travel to see one of the last 25 remaining
7:35 pm
glaciers, this is jackson glaciers. in this part of the state, nothing escapes the issue. the signage even explains what's going on behind it. >> it's gorgeous and we are worried about the receding glaciers. every time wedge we hope there will still be as much but they're disappearing slowly. >> i think the, oh, my god, moment is going to be seeing the places they love, the places close to them go down and realizing that their kids are not going to be able to experience that and that the quality of the lives of their kids and grandkids are going to go down and not up. >> that increase in temperature is having a profound effect across the park. we've seen a three-fold increase in the last 100 years in days over 90 degrees fahrenheit. it's causing the trees to move uphill so that tree line you see behind me now constantly on the
7:36 pm
move because of climate change, chris. >> cal, the scientists you spoke to talked about the fires there. what is the warmth and the heat done to the fire season out there? >> so compared to the 1970s, we've seen an increase in fire season of 70 to 80 days, they're burning hotter and longer. when you talk to scientists, professors, she'll tell you it's about these insects, these invasive species in these foresees. we worry about the tipping point. the forests are supposed to be absorbing the carbon, but sooner or later they'll turn toxic and start emitting the toxin. >> more live from washington, d.c., where students filled the streets today. i'm going to talk to those activists next. >> this is something bigger that be the environment. this is actually a human issue.
7:37 pm
this is about our communities. i'm 19 years old, i'm a didn't of the peoples. when i got involved when i was 6, 7 years old, i was the only one at many of these events that was my age, only young brown person. so now everywhere that i look, young people are revaluatiolutig movement culture. people are on the ground with projects, if we make it and hit the mark and we do the work that needs to be done, the future is going to be really dope. it's going to be abundant and beautiful and we have a lot of work to get there. we'll do it together. [ cheers and applause ] it's not "pretty good or nothing." it's not "acceptable or nothing." and it's definitely not "close enough or nothing."

7:41 pm
i've been doing this work since i was about 14 for me there was never a time in my life where the climate crisis wasn't a reality. my name is jamie, i'm 17 years old, i'm a climate justice activist here in seattle going into my senior year of high school. and i'm the founder of the zero hour youth climate action movement. we're called zero hour because this is an emergency. there are zero hours left to take action. over the course of a year, we organized and we have been able to put together this massive coalition that organized 25 youth climate marches all over the world in 2018. . the first step is to stop digging. all over the country we're still digging and digging into this problem. i am a plaintiff along with 12 others who are suing the washington state government because here in my state there's a lot of new fossil fuel infrastructure being built and proposed. a lot of times the way the climate change is talked about, especially with the presidential debates, we're going to talk about health care now, great,
7:42 pm
next topic, climate change, next topic, race, when in reality we should talk about this in the context of the climate change. we should not be begging for the basic thing you can have, class livable future and a livable planet. chews [ cheers and applause ] >> we're back live here in washington, d.c., with this group of young climate activists who took to the streets today along with other activists all over the world. my colleague ali velshi and i spoke to the candidates organized with our partners, and our media partner, new york magazine. i kicked off by talking to senator cory booker of new jersey of he told me about his vision for transitioning the economy and jobs. >> how concerned are you about that argument? there are a lot of people working in the oil fields in
7:43 pm
west texas, natural gas companies, all sorts of folks whose lives may be disrupted by the transition to net zero carbon emissions. >> i think there has to be a just transition as a lot of people are now saying, and i think that if you go to coal miners and say your family, my ancestors were coal miners, what you're doing to carve from the earth there your labor, your american dream, and this country is going to turn your back, when you helped to fuel industry to light up people's lives literally, and now we're going to turn our back on you? for shame. if i heard that, i'm going to vote for the person that tells me i'm going to protect your jobs. and so the democratic party cannot look down upon any profession, anyone who's trying to do what they think is best
7:44 pm
for their family. what we need to be doing is show them a future that includes them and their family, that, hey, we need to urgently transition off off coal, and we will do that, but we have a plan to make sure that you will not have to lose your coal job and go to a minimum wage job where you're not going to be able to feed your family. >> i'm here with a group of climate strikesers. what's your name. >> my name is tokata, 16 years old because the standing rock reservation. >> what do you think about the politics of this where some people watching the climate strike who do work in oil fields or coal and thinking this is going to leave me out. what do you want to say them? >> i want to say that as a person of this generation, you know, it's not about jobs for me. i recognize the value and importance of jobs, but when we're talking about the climate crisis, we are talking about a matter of whether or not there will be a future. so when we talk about jobs, we're talking about providing for the right here and the right
7:45 pm
now. what we need to be looking at is what does life look like for our children? what does our life look like for our grandchildren. it comes down to a matter of life and death. >> how did you get started doing this work? >> when i was 9 years old and before that, my parents had been raising me with the indigenous values of the lakota people. knowing that inherently i was related to everything that lives upon the earth, sort of made me an activist. and i started public speaking when i was 9 because there was a proceeds project to mine uranium in the hills. >> what's your name and where are you from? >> i'm from sonoma county, california. >> do you feel like you have seen climate change up close? >> definitely. i was completely affected by the california fires. luckily i'm an emergency firefighter. one of my friends was extremely affected. she called me one day by the fires and she was surrounded by flames. luckily because i am a
7:46 pm
firefighter, i was able to -- my team and i were able to get her out safely. >> you got her out of the fire? >> yes, we did. >> were the folks around you as they were recovering from that fire, which was horrifying, do you feel like that was a light bulb moment for some people about what it means and how close this threat is? >> absolutely. i wish it was because i've been telling my story multiple times, yet at the same time why do i have to tell people? they should already be experiencing this. they should already know about this. it's not something you can just blow over. >> i want to ask you something that i asked folks last night about the way you think about it and feel about it. do you feel anxiety about the future? >> yes, 100%. i worry too much about what my future looks like. when i'm talking about school and just day-to-day life, those things are always skewed by the fact that we don't know what the immediate future looks like, especially when we're looking at the catastrophic events that are caused by climate change.
7:47 pm
they are affecting everybody personally. if you haven't seen it yet, you aren't looking. >> do you feel like politicians are listening now or listening more? >> no, no. i honestly wish they did. this isn't about sides anymore. this is about coming together as one. we're not being heard. that's why we're here. i don't understand why we have one side versus the other. we're fighting for survival at this point. and it doesn't make sense to me. >> i really appreciate you talking to me. we're going to have more here from washington, d.c., on today's historic protests. don't go anywhere. >> hey, hey, ho ho, climate change has got to go. >> it's upsetting that the climate crisis has been put on my generation's shoulders where we have to be the ones fighting for a livable planet. it's unfair, especially how world leaders didn't act in time. so now it's the time for students to go down to the streets and demand that they act on the climate crisis.
7:48 pm
every friday i strike school and i'm outside of the united nations headquarters because it's where all the world leaders come together to make big decisions like reducing our global greenhouse gas emissions. so it's really a symbolic place for a global message. when i started i was alone, but more students started to come out and the movement in new york city started to quickly grow. everything i do is from the heart because my generation is truly pushing for change. and we have to be the ones out here demanding action. [ cheers and applause ] as a struggling actor, i need all the breaks that i can get. at liberty butchemel... cut. liberty mu... line? cut. liberty mutual customizes your car insurance so you only pay for what you need. cut. liberty m... am i allowed to riff? what if i come out of the water? liberty biberty...

what do we want? >> climate justices. >> when do we want it? >> now. >> we march because indigenous people are disproportionately affect by climate change. >> built on the backs of our ancestors has the power to make

real change. >> and we demand a safe future. is that really too much to ask? >> you are the david that will beat the goliath. you will beat the fossil fuel industry. >> i'm really excited to fight this. [ cheers and applause ] >> we're back in washington, d.c. that was just a taste of the incredible climate protests we saw today across the country and the globe of the here here in the nation's capitol. we got to talk to 2020 candidates to talk about climate change. listen to what pete buttigieg said about his personal investment in this fight. >> what is your personal stake in this? >> i'm hoping to be here in 2050. >> that's good. >> so to me this is not an abstract my grandkids kind of thing. but i think i'm going to be here. >> it's going to be hot.
7:52 pm
