i wasn't going to apologize. i wasn't going to apologize. >> donald trump continues to cite newspaper arls and video clips of the 9/11 coverage. none of them show a large celebration. the united nations climate conference entered day three this morning in paris. cars and trucks produced one-fifth of all air pollution in the u.s. mark phillips recently took a drive around oslo, norway, where the government induced a series of incentives. they make what's good for the planet good for the consumer. mark is back in london with more of his series, "the climate diaries." mark, good morning. >> good morning. what if you could buy a car that produces zero emissions and the fuel, the parking and the driving is basically free. there is such a country and it's norway, the electric car capital of the world. it's not too good to be true, it just takes the will and the money. take a look around the streets of oslo.
a lot of these cars have brats that start with the letter "e" for electric. in norway a quarter of all new cars sold are electric. 70% of those pure plug-ins, not hybrids. and that's
not just because the norwegians aren't environmentally responsible people, it's because here it pays to go electric. in fact you'd be crazy not to. ask lee halvorsen, he's crunched the number. >> this car will be for free. >> for free? it's hard to get a better deal than free. >> reporter: owning the car will be free because of a hugely attractive set of government funded incentives. for a start, leif will pay no sales tax on it, a whopping 25%. then he'll pay for registration fee to get it on the road. the electricity to charge it up is free at government-funded curb-side plug-ins.
range somewhere between 100 and 150 miles per charge becomes almost a nonissue. and once on the road, all tolls are free, as are ferry and bridge charges. and anita veborg will tell you there's another benefit n her car she can drive in the bus and taxi lanes to avoid traffic. >> i can save up to an hour if it's really bad actually. >> there's traffic all over the road but you have your very own lane here. >> that's quite right. that's right. >> reporter: she bear lowarely gives a thought to all those guys in their gas guzzlers stuck in the slow lane. >> you don't feel guilty? >> i don't feel guilty. i'm doing something good. we're driving and i'm not polluting. so that's good. >> reporter: anita has another trick. when she plugs in at home, her power comes from solar panels installed on her roof.
if you're put off by that old idea that electric cars are from the golf cart and not the vroom school of motoring -- >> this thing really goes. >> reporter: take a ride in this tesla. it's pricey, but no more so than any other set of hot wheels. >> the power of this car is amazing. i can't afford to buy a petrol car with this performance. >> reporter: what's happened here in norway has become the perfect electrical storm. a mix of spectacularly generous tax breaks, of special driving privileges and of electric cars that finally drive like cars. in fact this has all been so successful, the norwegian government is looking for ways to put the brakes on it. lars lunda is the deputy minister of the environment. >> the benefits -- >> you were anticipating 45, 50, 60% electric. >> we have to go to 100% in the
our target is actually that. >> reporter: getting to 100% may still be a dream, but the norwegian experiment has proved one thing. if you build them and make it worth their while, they will come. and if you say yeah, but they still have to burn fossil fuels to generate the electrical power that charges the cars, well, not in norway. almost all of the electric power there comes from clean, renewable hydro. some places have the will, the money and all the luck. christine. >> mark phillips in london, thank you. mark's series "the climate diaries" continues tomorrow from scotland. he'll show us how clean power is coming from under the waves. that's tomorrow on "cbs this morning." this morning cbs news is remembering an accomplished producer and beloved colleague. harry radliffe died after a long battle with colon cancer. he joined cbs news in the 1970s and went on to cover stories all
he reported on terrorism, the middle east and the chernobyl nuclear disaster. in 1986 harry radliffe became the first african-american bureau chief for cbs news. he led the london bureau. he contributed nearly 100 stories to "60 minutes." he earned a peabody award, televisions's highest honor. on "60 minutes overtime" he remembered his favorite story, a visit to monastery, and he discussed what he loved most about his job. >> our experience was so unusual, it's one of the most interesting places i've ever been. i've just always been curious about the world. you know, to go off with a camera and be able to come back with a story that you put together and show it to people, i mean what's not cool about that? >> in a statement, "60 minutes" executive producer called
our lives, our broadcast and our entire news organization. we will miss him very much. >> he really loved his job and he was very well loved and respected here. >> a great gentleman and a huge heart. >> it's so great, he says what's better than that, to be able to do this, and i think of that all the time. >> and the kinds of stories people choose for "60 minutes" says something about their own humanness and theirself. >> absolutely. well, covering tough topics as well and this one certainly is. journalists took on the roman catholic church and exposed its darkest secrets. mark ruffalo is here in studio 57 this morning along with the investigative reporter he plays in the critically good morning. light snow is falling across central iowa and will diminish by noon with only minor accumulations. watch for a few slippery patches early

a recent survey shows the average worker, listen to this -- spends about six hours a day checking e-mails! one of the most e-mailed stories this week on "the new york times" website is called "addicted to distraction." the author, tony schwartz, says too much internet is making it hard for us to focus! the web, in his words, has arguably replaced work, itself, as our most socially sanctioned addiction. he is founder and ceo of the energy project and he joins us here at the table this morning. welcome. >> thank you very much. >> so how exactly is the internet interfering with our attention span? >> you get good at whatever you do frequently or better at and if what you're constantly doing is interrupting yourself and
and has bit waited to is interrupting yourself and that is happening. internet isn't going away and a lot of value in it. the problem is anything even a virtue overused eventually becomes a liability and when you lose control of your own attention, when you feel pulled into the world of all that is available on the internet, it begins to have some pretty insidious impacted on your brain. >> i was surprised there was an issue for you considering what you do. you start the article saying you're reading a book and kept reading the same paragraph over and over again. how do you know, a, it wasn't a good book, and how does that mean you have a distraction problem. >> i love books and even bad books, historically, have drawn me in! i don't remember what book i wasn't reading but i know reading is something i can do relevant easily. it is surprising it happened to me because i'm a lifelong reader. even as i read, i had that hunger. all three of you have your smartphone sitting here right in front of you. >> yes.
instinct is to go for it immediately and what we don't realize is that that is taking a toll on our ability both to hold memories, to retain memories, retain information over time, and it's also making us more and more distractible, because it's what we are doing all the time. >> do neuroscientist confirm this? >> yes. there is really comfortable evidence the working memory, we know, is very, very limited. the stuff that comes into your brain immediately, there is only a limited amount you can hold in there and it's not held there for very long. if it doesn't transfer down deeper into the campus, i'm talking neurologically, if it doesn't transfer deeply it won't be retained and we have reached a limit where that memory can be withhole. powering water from a fauscet into a full cup of water it's
>> you say multitasking we should stop doing it. no difference from a 50-year-old brain and 13-year-old brain. >> a 13 said, you don't get it, mom or dad, i do it differently than you do! doesn't realize all they do is shift tasks more quickly than you do, but while they are doing one task, they are not doing another! the result is, the brain is incapable of doing two cognitive tasks at the same time, that you are more -- you get more depth and you get more value from doing one thing at a time sequentially rather than multiple things at the time switching back and forth between them. >> that is a problem. what is the cure? >> i found three or four things, after spending a month this summer testing myself. >> we have time for two. >> testing myself by staying off the internet. right. number one, take certain periods during the day where you're not online. turn it off for selected periods. don't assume that you can resist it if you're hearing the ping. number two, take an occasional
when you're on vacation where you actually do go off and you're in detox. that's what i did. i ended up being able to read, not only that bookxt on "cbs this morning." it's easy to love your laxative when that lax loves your body back. only miralax hydrates, eases and softens to unblock naturally, so you have peace of mind from start to finish.

>> the ceo of mon santo welcome back, it's now 8:25! the man involved in tuesday nights stand-off on highway 141 is now charged with murder. michael wanchanic was wanted as a person of interest in a double homicide when he was spotted last night near woodward. he took off in a mini van
but the vehicle eventually died, stranding him on the highway... wanchanic is charged in the deaths of 36- year-old bryon howard and 31- year-old heather belieu. he lived with the couple... but was not related to them. heather's mother spoke exclusively with kcci about her loving daughter...
your forecast right after this! at the first world conference on climate change, the challenge seemed insurmountable. but today, as world leaders come together in paris, the solutions are clear. with a real commitment to clean energy, we can tackle the climate crisis, end our dependence on oil from foreign countries, and create millions of american jobs. but none of it will happen unless america leads. so, what are we waiting for? good morning. light snow is falling across central iowa and will diminish by noon with only minor accumulations. watch for a few slippery patches early this morning. skies will start to clear late today and that will set the stage for a nice

welcome back to "cbs this morning." ahead in the next half hour, the heated debate over genetically modified food. the ceo of monsanto is here in studio 57 today, hugh grant will talk about the future of our food supply and why his company is against labeling geo products. mark ruffalo in a knew movie about how a new newspaper uncovered boston catholic church abuse scandal. the actor and his real life role model will join us in studio 57 ahead. time to show you this morning's headlines. the "los angeles times" looks at new 360-degree videos from google's cultural institute
orchestra performances. philadelphia orchestra playing in the hall of the mountain king. another in the center of the ballet. clear, loud, bright! >> very cool! >> very nice! >> especially for people who can't go, you know? >> put you right there. >> absolutely. new york's daily news says jerry seinfeld will perform one show a month in manhattan. it starts off january 27th. he said it was inspired by billy joel's month performances at madison square garden. he told a joke, he said years ago i bought billy joel's house so now i'm going to copy his career. i want to see that show. >> me too. >> funny show. >> i'm sure the tickets are flying. the philadelphia inquirer said the sixers lost 28 in a row going back to last season but
the sold-out crowd also saw the lakers kobe bryant play in his hometown for the last time. bryant says he'll retire after this season. fda ruling proofing the sale of genetically modified salmon has recharged the debate over the future of our food. critics call the modified salmon franken fish but genetically modified organisms have been part of our diet for years and most of them is corn, soy, and other products with added organicisms to increase their resistance from disease. the grocery manufactured association says 80% of the processed food in the u.s. is genetically modified and most of it is not label. >> monsanto is one of the largest producer of genetically modified seed. critics say it should be more transparent.
pleased to have you. >> thanks for having me. >> you know the concern for this. polls show people and citizens across the country are concerned. for those who see that concern or express that concern, how do you prove them otherwise and what is it exactly that you believe? >> well, we are, as you know, we are an agricultural company and we sell seeds to farmers to make harvest and those harvest end up on plates around the world. genetically modified organicisms, next year is the 20th anniversary. billions of acres and trill i don't know those of portions of food and probably the most studied food production in history. i feel confident about the safety but, as you say, because of this, you know, the continued concern, we probably should do a better job and dialogue. >> you mean more transparency? more conversation? more what?
i think part of the challenge, there is such misinformation on where food comes from. >> what is the misinformation? >> people between what arrives on a plate and what farmers do to -- so far, 2% of the country feeds 98%. so i think for companies like mine, we have got our work cut out in explaining what agriculture is and where food comes from. >> are you in
favor of mandatory labeling? >> i'm in favor of some federal standards, so i'm -- i think a broad umbrella in labeling that is based on science, and based on facts. and i welcome -- my concern,
labeling debate so far is organic. if you look today at the organic food standard, i would be -- i'd be in favor of. >> to
charlie's point about transparency transparency, your company spent over $4 million to defeat a balloting in two states. if you're for transparency, why spend so much money to make sure it doesn't happen? >> a deep concern we end up with a patch work quilt of state-by-state regulations where you end up in a place where you can't move a can of soup from one state to the other. you talk to the food manufacturer -- we have a seed company. when you talk to the food manufacturers, the concern is how do you move food between states? so if you fast forward, we have been at this for 20 years. you think forward and think of the food security and challenges of climate change, these are tools we have to have in our
i'm concerned if you build a patchwork state-by-state regulation we are never going to move forward sxnts consumer pays $400 to $500 more a year in their grocery bills because you get state-by-state regulation. i like the idea something that covers the country. >> isn't it in your interest to get out in front of this? >> yeah. that's why i'm talking to you here today. >> but you've got chain restaurants like mcdonald and 'cha chipotle. what do they doughknow? >> the real change the last couple of years i said we are a seed company. the restaurants are so far down the chain from us. i think more and more, this is all interconnected, so we have been spending more time talking to the food companies and more time talking to the consumers because i think when you -- when you think of 2.5 billion -- in our planet and the next 40
every tool in the box to satisfy us. >> i'm curious. i know your company deals primarily with seeds. will you try the geneticive modified salmon when it's out on the market? >> absolutely. >> you have no problem with that? >> no. i look forward to trying the salmon. it's not one of our products but, as i said, we going to need all of these elements for our kids and our grandkids. >> quickly. we want to talk about roundup. it's been approved in america by the epa, something that your company manufactures. but many studies have looked at where it's funded or conducted by your company that this chemical may actually, could cause cancer. a chemical that is in this seed. is there any sort of response to that? are we, in fact, poisoning our crops by using this roundup chemical? >> not at all. farmers depend on this and it's an important tool in the fight against weeds. every spring when they plant a
they are there every spring. they need all the help they can get to combat those weeds. i feel very good about the safety of the product. it's been studied extensively for more than 40 years. if you think to the future, and how we -- there is two challenges. how do we feed the hungry world and how do we feed 9.5 billion people? number one. number two, simultaneously, how do we fight climate change? we need all of these tools and these products to help combat -- >> you promised to go carbon neutral in crop production? >> we made the announcement yesterday we will be carbon neutral in six short years. for our entire footprints, we will be in a position where we -- what we emit will be covered by what we consume. >> no one realistically is expecting you to think your

never thought about the coffee i was drinking having acids. it never dawned on me that it could hurt your teeth. my dentist has told me your enamel is wearing away, and that sounded really scary to me, and i was like well can you fix it, can you paint it back on, and he explained that it was not something that grows back, it's kind of a one-time shot and you have to care for it. he told me to use pronamel. it's gonna help protect the enamel in your teeth. it allows me to continue to drink my coffee and to eat healthier, and it was a real easy switch to make. if you're doing everything right but find it harder and harder to get by, you're not alone. while our people work longer hours for lower wages, almost all new income goes to the top 1%. my plan -- make wall street banks and the ultrarich pay their fair share of taxes, provide living wages for working people, ensure equal pay for women. i'm bernie sanders. i approve this message because together, we can make a political revolution and create an economy and democracy that works for all
oscar buzz is strong this morning for spotlight. the movie shares the true story of reporters investigating the catholic church sex abuse scandal. they cardinal bernard law. >> if we don't rush to print, somebody else is going to find these letters and butcher the story. joe was at the frig'ing chort courthouse. >> bear told us to get the system. we need the full scope. that's the only thing that will put an end to this. >> leanthen take it to ben and let him decide. >> we take it to ben when i say it's time. >> it's time! they knew and they let it happen! two kids!
it could have been you. it could be me or any of us! we got to nail these scumbags and we got to show people that nobody can get away with this, not a priest or a cardinal or a friggin' pope! >> gosh. that movie was so good. two-time academy award nominee mark ruffalo plays rezendes who is also at the table. you got the script on friday and you read it and said, instantly, i'm in. you get word, mike, he is going to play you. why did you want to do it? you read it and thought was? >> i tread and thought this story had to be told. it was the right time to tell it. and that it had -- it had a particular reach at the time when "the boston globe" told the story, but -- but we could take it a little bit further in the
and it just felt so honest and it left out the salacious part of the story and went directly to the investigation. so you're allowed to enter this world and look at this very hard story in a dispassionate way. so by the end of it, you get a real moral certitude where you end up. >> reporter: when you shadowed him, what did you find out about reporting and about him? >> i found out that a great reporter dedicates his life to his work and that is what i found out about mike rezendes. >> what was it like him shadowing you? >> turn the table. >> it was turning the table. mark came right into my living room. i had never met him before. without anything in the way of introduction, he sits down and
pen and turns on his iphone and starts asking me questions. they were kind of personal questions. i thought, wow! this is pretty comfortable. then i thought about how many times i had done that to other people and i started to relax into it and ultimately, we had a great conversation. >> you lived through this yourself. >> yes. >> you have a firsthand account. when you saw the movie, were you pleased with how real it was? >> yeah. i think the movie is incredibly authentic and i think it captures the substance and spirit of what we did just incredibly well. i'm very pleased with it. i love the message that it gives about investigative reporting. i love the message it gives about clergy sex abuse. >> i was going to say two stories here. one is a story about reporting and two a story about how something like this could go on to long? >> i like how it keeps public attention on this which is still really important. >> meaning the church has not
>> i think the church has taken several meaningful steps. i think most survivors will tell you the church has not done enough and more to be done. absolutely. >> to appreciate what hurt the damage and the damage has been done to the virgin islandsindividuals? >> that's right. >> a line in the movie said with one of the survivors how do you say no to god? what these priests meant to us and to our families. mark, could you talk about that for a minute, about how powerful it was and the affect it had on these families? >> yeah. what -- coming from a catholic background, what you have to remember is that a priest is literally the direct -- the direct lineage from god to the community. and so nobody expects there to be a predator there. nobody expects there to be, like, a direct active evil. and that's probably one of the more horrific aspects of the
destroying -- and we talk did it in the movie -- you're destroying someone's faith. >> because they think it's coming from god almost? >> of course! it's a direct manifestation of god. if you're a catholic, the priest is a direct manifestation of god. they are almost infallible. >> the victims are coming from affluent communities. for somebody to pay attention to them like that, of course, they are drawn into it. >> the predators, they looked on the margins. they were like a wolf waiting for a lame sheep. they looked for children who didn't have father figures, who were vulnerable who they knew would not speak out. the reason that it's boys are predominantly the ones molested not a preference from boyses but boys are most easily victimized. they don't speak out. they are ashamed. and that is why -- these guys
m.o. they were predators. >> did it change how you felt about your religion, mike, when you were reporting the story and working on? >> even though i was a lapsed catholic at the time, i still considered myself a catholic and i still identified catholic. and it did change how i felt about the church, no question about it. just the wall of secrecy and the lies about these terrible things that had taken place, it did affect me, of course. >> thank you both. i wish we had more time. >> oh, yeah. >> such a fantastic movie "spotlight" is in theaters right
