1:02 am
with the french president at his side. he just started a meeting with the chinese president xi jinping. they talked about a wide variety of the summit and about the research killing of the student by isis. the president and president xi will set a tone for the climate summit. the deal is if the who biggest economies in the world, u.s. and chinese can limit the carbon emissions, the u.s. and china did that last year, this is a tone setting meeting for president obama and president xi. what they are gaming to do over the next couple days is launch a summit that they hope at the conclusion will end with a climate agreement that will bind nearly every country on earth to a commitment to lower carbon emissions in the hopes of reducing the growth and temperatures over the next
1:03 am
century by 4 degree fahrenheit. the officials here with the president and secretary of state, they believe this is a good start. the question, christine, is what kind of agreement comes out of the climate summit in paris if it is not to the liking of republicans back in washington. they may try to go after the climate agreement although it is not a binding treaty that requires votes on capitol hill, they could limit the president's ability to execute that agreement by controlling the purse strings and funds that may go to executing this agreement. a big couple of days for the president. he will meet with president francois hollande later on tonight and talk about the war on isis. >> a lot of potential news. jim, you have the war on terror
1:04 am
front and center and paris and the potential for the climate change. do we expect maybe a chance meeting or a scheduled meeting between the russian president and president obama? >> reporter: right now, officials are saying there is no planned bilateral meeting. as we see during the summits, the president and putin, when they go past each other in the hallway or meet at a dinner, they move off to the sidelines as they call it and have a discussion. we saw that at the g-20. it was quite striking. it will be interesting to see what happens. at this point, we know president obama and president hollande will talk about that meeting hollande had with vladimir putin back in moscow last week. the question is whether or not hollande can pull together the global coalition against isis. all indications, christine, the
1:05 am
kremlin and president obama and president putin are not there yet. i believe there will be a lot of movement in that direction if they can make that happen. >> jim acosta in paris this morning. we are getting new information about what motivated the shooter at the planned parenthood clinic in colorado springs. suspect robert lewis dear is set to have a court appearance this afternoon by video link. we are learning about two more victims in the attack. kier stewart and then jennifer originally from hawaii. authorities has announced the police officer. >> reporter: a law enforcement says the suspect is 57-year-old
1:06 am
robert dear made a reference to quote baby parts. that is fueling the notion of the anti-abortion views were behind the attack. as for the suspect's back ground, a portrait is emerging he was a loner and before leaving in colorado, he lived in north carolina. in terms of a criminal background, we know he had some brushes with law enforcement, but never convicted. in 1997, his wife at the time, accused him of domestic assault. he was never charged. because there is no criminal violent past associated with the suspect, that why the mayor in this town say it is hard for law enforcement to keep tabs on someone like him. >> we had examples of this in the past. this guy is set up to be a ted kaczynski character. not quite the loner, but it is
1:07 am
very difficult for law enforcement to deal with individuals like this who don't commit serious crimes and get themselves on the radar that way. unless the threat is posed beforehand that they can respond to. >> reporter: authorities work to come up with a motive. he gave up inside the planned parenthood after six hours and after the vehicle bearcat rammed the vehicle. he dropped his weapon and gave up. christine and alison. >> dan, thank you for that. one question hanging over the attack. whether it will complicate fight the fight in congress. that started when the anti-abortion group released videos that claimed planned parenthood profits from the sale of fetal tissue. hard liners are pushing for a government shutdown if funding is not cut off.

1:09 am
parenthood. and rejection of the next that the anti-abortion rhetoric played any part in the violence. >> what i would say to anyone trying to link this message to tragedy is this is typical left wing tactics. >> what he did was domestic terrorism. what he did was absolutely abominable. especially to us pro life movement. there is nothing about any of us that would condone or look the other way at something like this. >> this was an agreement. this was a man who they said prior to this that he was mentally disturbed. he is a mentally disturbed person. >> let's get away from the rhetoric and talk about the problem. the real problem is that we have become coarse and hateful toward one another.

1:25 am
tell me, are americans on lockdown here and how unique is the warning? >> reporter: the warning of this is specific. many foreigners in kabul have been on lockdown for the past many months. it has been a violent year in afghanistan since the spring. and general embassy workers are encouraged to stay home. a warning like this specific is rare. >> people have been on high alert. this particular warning, that something could happen, something as planned for the next 48 hours, quite specific. we don't know anymore of the details. can you tell us how big the
1:26 am
presence is? the ex-patriate presence is? >> reporter: there are many troops and 11,000 are american soldiers. in addition to that, there are almost as many three times as many contractors here. there are u.n. agencies. and ngos and journalists. there is still a considerable presence of foreigners in the city. we don't know if this threat is targeting foreigners or a major attack in the city that they don't want american citizens to be caught up in. we don't know who is going to be behind the attack if it is not foiled, of course. the u.s. embassy is saying nothing about this. there is still a considerable presence of foreigners.

1:33 am
certainly this section of the city is absolutely locked down in terms of security. indeed, the shadow of terrorism as well. the primary reason is the fight of isis which will be discussed and now primarily the fight of climate change. it is that subject that president obama is in meetings with other big polluting meetings. you mentioned the chinese president that he is meeting with him right now. the other key meetings to take place over the next day will be that of india's president as well. together, if they are able to work together constructively and show leadership with the u.s. and china, there is the optimistic belief, if you like, there could be a strong significant deal out of the end of the two weeks of talks. the leaders are here for the next 24 hours to state their

1:35 am
a lot of solidarity with the french people. a lot of talk of defiance against isis and islamist terrorism. proceeding with the talks in itself is also an act of de defian defiance. also globally as well. it is a statement by all the leaders that gathered here, terrorism is an issue and immediate one. they can deal with that. it will not distract them from other big important issues like climate change. like many officials who gathered here for the talks climate change is a bigger issue. the discussions they have here will determine the future. >> and sideline discussions will happen as well. phil black, thanks. we are getting new information about what motivated a shooting spring at the planned parenthood in colorado springs. the attack killed three and wounded nine others.

1:56 am
embassy comes out and says they have reports of an imminent attack as they phrase it here. we don't know who is supposedly behind or planning the attack or who it should be targeting or if it is targeting foreigners. if they are worried foreigners are caught up in collateral damage or where in the city it is supposed to happen. >> are you sensing the mood is more on edge because of the latest warning? >> reporter: no, i think this warning is mainly meant for american citizens and foreigners in the city. afghans have been living in the country and where the security has deteriorated for the past year. the mood in the city hasn't changed. most foreigners, u.n. workers at embassies, don't travel the streets that much. so perhaps the mood is different at the embassy, where i'm not at
