miles high, for 140 miles, and were exceptionally fast. north korea's state media said the supreme leader, kim jong-un, personally organized and guided the launch of a new type of tactical-guided weapon president trump, who has made outreach to north korea one of his main foreign policy gambles, downplayed the launches as small potatoes. >> short-range missiles, we never made an agreement on that. i have no problem. we'll see what happens these are short-range missiles they're very standard. >> reporter: at an international conference in asia, secretary of state pompeo said despite the missile test, he hopes diplomatic talks with kim jong-un would resume soon. >> i'm optimistic that that will happen before too long, and we are looking forward to the chance to reconnect with them in a formal way diplomatically. >> reporter: what is north korea driving at the kim family regime is furious that even though president trump promised that military exercises between the u.s. and the north's old enemy, south korea, would

arriving on a reported multiple private jets and staying on yachts to talk about global warming is hypocritical, some critics say. i wish rich people would stop pretending they care about the environment while they fly in fleets of private jets, one person tweeted another, pretty disgusted at the hypocrisy of google camp some experts fear the criticism misses a crucial point the real danger, they say, is a massive expansion in flying by millions around the world. >> the fact that a few hundred celebrities have taken private jets to get to the google camp is dwarfed by the fact that 80% of the world's population hasn't been on an airplane before. >> reporter: celebrities, critical of their excessive use of energy, is criticized for a do as i say, not as i do, approach. >> people are having fun taking shots at the celebrities some are coming to their defense though >> there are some defending the
celebrities over what i think is part of a backlash against the sense every famous person needs to have a cause. others say that if you have a huge following, maybe millions on social media followers, surely it's right to put attention on something you care about. some of the celebrities are using the audience that they have to put attention on people who don't get much attention for example, a 16-year-old teen who is taking a boat rather than a plane to a climate conference to reduce her carbon footprint what she's doing illustrates a problem. if we all change our behavior, stop taking planes and all start using a boat, that would be pretty impractical there is a balance to be struck here between good messaging and at the same time changing our
