7:03 am
welcome to "cbs this morning." brittany maynard's short and meaningful life is over. she took a deadly dose of drugs. they were prescribed by a doctor. she reignited a debate over end of life issues last month by revealing how she would die. >> maynard was a few weeks short of her 30th birthday. a spokesman said she died at home, quote, in the arms of her loved ones. just five days ago maynard said in a video i still feel good enough and it doesn't seem like the right time, right now. jan crawford spoke to maynard last month in her first tv interview. good morning. >> good morning. when i sat down with brittany, she said she hoped to make it to november 1st, that that was the goal. but she said there was a good chance she was going to end her life on that day. so saturday, it was just a few days after she celebrated her husband's birthday brittany went through with those plans. >> i think until anyone has walked a mile in my shoes and knows what they're facing has
7:04 am
felt just the bone-splitting headaches that i get or the seizures or the inability to speak or the moments where i'm looking in my husband's face and i can't think of his name. >> reporter: brittany maynard's message was clear. in an interview for "cbs this morning," she said she intended to die with dignity. so to the people who would say, well, you're choosing to end your life, that's suicide, you would say no, it's what? >> no, cancer is ending my life. i am choosing to end it a little sooner and in a lot less pain and suffering. >> in her final facebook message maynard wrote, i have chosen to pass away with dignity in the face of my terminal illness. the world is a beautiful place. i even have a ring of support around my bed as i type. good-bye, world. spread good energy. pay it forward. last spring maynard was diagnosed with the most lethal form of brain cancer and given
7:05 am
six months to live. she moved from her home in california to oregon because of its death-with-dignity act, which would allow her doctor to prescribe a lethal dose of drugs to end her life. in her final days maynard crossed a handful of items off her bucket list, including a trip with her family last month to the grand canyon. have you thought about actually letting her go? >> i'm not going to be a big weight around her neck at that moment. i'm not going to be a big wailing, crying -- you know, that's not fair. that's not fair. it's going to be peaceful. >> reporter: brittany said her only regret was that she never had children but she took solace knowing her legacy would still live on. >> through sharing my story, i realize there's a bit of a legacy i'm creating this way and i'm not ashamed of that. i'm not ashamed to attach my name to what i think is the right that i think
7:06 am
should belong to all terminally ill americans, i really do. >> now, at just 29 years old, brittany's very public decision to end her life has put the right to die issue back in the national spotlight. in less than one month, her original youtube video had got be nearly 10 million hits and it stirred this emotional reaction on both sides, which really shows this right to die movement remains controversial. >> i'll say, jan. thank you. such a beautiful brave young woman. i keep thinking of her family, but they were all together. >> and she said dying with dignity, with i think a lot of people understand. >> thank you, jan. investigators believe a human error may have caused a space plane to break apart in midair. spaceship two crashed in california on friday, killing a crew member. a possible cause is something called feathering. that's when the pilots lift and rotate the tail fins to create drag, preparing it for descent. that process may have started too soon, officials believe.
7:07 am
john blackstone is in the mohave desert. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the mojave space port here is headquarters for the spaceship two test flight. the craft came apart over the desert here, scattering debris across an area five miles long. the investigation could take up to a year. but already a mistake in the cockpit is emerging as a possible cause. moments before spaceshiptwo disintegrated midair, the ntsb says its so-called feathers were not in the correct position. >> these are the feathers when they're moved up to the feather position. not only the two tail boons but it's also a part of the wing that moves up into the deploy position. >> reporter: the feathers are only to be upright when the ship is descending from orbit but the co-pilot unlocked them prematurely when the spacecraft was still accelerating. >> then the aerodynamic forces moved them into that position. shortly after that, the tapes terminated.
7:08 am
>> reporter: these photos taken from the ground friday shows the vehicle detaching from its mother ship, firing its engines, and breaking up moments later. the 39-year-old co-pilot michael alsbury, was killed. peter siebold ejected from the ship. he was injured but is alert and talking. spaceshiptwo was a prototype for virgin galactic, a space touring company. branson had hoped to start space flights next year, plans that are now in doubt. >> this is the biggest test program ever carried out in commercial aviation history precisely to ensure that this never happens to the public. >> reporter: more than 700 people including angelina jolie and leonardo dicaprio have already paid as much as $250,000 for a seat. >> if anybody wants a refund, will be able to get a refund. we haven't used the money. we never -- we always decided it's best not to use the money. it was more, you know, just gave us the confidence to do the program, knowing that these
7:09 am
people were so committed. >> reporter: because this was a closely monitored test flight, investigators have a wealth of data available to them that they don't have after a usual plane crash. there were cameras watching the flight here on the ground. cameras on the spacecraft itself. and there were also cameras on chase planes following this whole flight closely. >> john, thank you. in our next half hour, we will ask sir richard branson about the future of his company and space tourism after this tragic accident. that's ahead. winter is getting an early start in the east. a weekend storm left snow from the carolinas to new england. nearly two feet fell in the great smoky mountains. massachusetts, workers cleared the field before sunday's broncos/patriots game. some of the biggest headaches this morning are in maine. vladimir duthiers is there with more. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. a record 12 inches of snow fell here in bangor and the results have been absolutely devastating.
7:10 am
utility crews working here were overwhelmed and forced to call in help from canada. and to make matters worse, the record chilling temperatures that have people still digging out their cars from underneath the snow. through bitter temperatures and piling snow plow operators in maine have been working around the clock. after a powerful storm dumped up to a foot of snow on parts of the state. this family of four was stuck in a car for two hours after their suv skidded off the road and smacked into a nearby pole trapping them under live wires. firefighters rescued the family after utility crews turned off power to the line. early blast of winter blanketed highways. that and poor visibility made driving conditions treacherous. drivers struggled to keep their cars on the road. wind gusts topping 40 miles an hour and the rising snow made it difficult for crews trying to restore power to some 100,000 homes and businesses that were left in the dark.
7:11 am
>> it's been rough. yeah. it's windy. hard to see. you look down the lines to make sure it's not energizing something on the ground. >> reporter: the governor has issued an emergency proclamation. that will allow utility crews to continue to work extended hours. there's still 70,000 people without power. they're hoping to get that back up in time for election day tomorrow. charlie? >> vlad, thanks. scientists are heating up an old debate. the united nations says climate change is real and man made. it calls for drastic changes by the end of the century. they say without action there could be irreversible damage. cbs news contributor professor michio kaku is a physics professor at the university of new york. good morning. >> good morning. >> the significance of the report and what sets it apart? >> first of all it's based on the largest amount of data. 30,000 studies were analyzed. as you mentioned, for the first time in clear words it says there's a point of no return, a beyond beyond which the damage would be
7:12 am
irreversible and irreparable. by the end of the century unless we take measures now by the end of the century, we have to zero out, not reduce but eliminate our dependence on coal and oil burning. >> what's the significance of man made? >> well, if it's a natural cycle, we throw our hands up in the air and say, "what can we do it's mother nature's revenge." however, if it's man made we can do something about it. we can eliminate the causes of it. this report is different from the other ones. it sets a deadline. 2100 deadline. zero out our dependence on fossil fuels. >> irreversible damage never sounds like a good thing. what exactly does that mean? why do we care about it now? >> well we care about it now because food prices are going to rise because of the destruction to agriculture. farmers realize that summer is almost a week longer than normal. insurance rates are going to go up because of flooding in many areas.
7:13 am
increasing heat spells mean more visits to the hospital. we're seeing the beginnings of it now. seas are rising. temperatures are rising. alaska and greenland are beginning to thaw out and we're seeing the beginnings of what could cause a lot of property damage. >> this is the hot et year on record. what needs to be done to turn back the clock? >> the simplest thing to do is increase efficiency. increase efficiency of vehicles mandate laws to make our society more efficient. >> because of carbon emissions. >> because of carbon emissions. it does mean we have to seriously think about solar, energy to reduce our dependence. there's also some good news here. the pew research center has stated that for the first time in history now, the american people believe that global warming is real and not a conspiracy of some sort. >> good to end on a good note. thank you, michio kaku.
7:14 am
lava from the volcano on hawaii's big island is staling this morning. it's about 500 feet from the main road of pahoa. it could cut off the town of about 1,000 people. 50 families are prepared to leave their homes if the fire and okay? become too intense. and have you heard, tomorrow is election day. voters will choose most of the nation's governors and all of its house members but the main focus is on senate races. nine battleground states are likely to decide which party controls the senate next year. nancy cordes has more. good morning. >> good morning. the parties have switched to 100% get out the vote mode. that sometimes means scaring the their own voters into getting to the polls. sometimes it means scaring the other side into staying home. either way, it's prompting accusations of dirty tricks, especially in the south. admakers from both sides are hoping fear of ebola is as contagious as the disease
7:15 am
itself. >> the ebola outbreak -- >> reporter: they're using images of body bags and hazmat suits to blame opponents for ebola's arrival in the u.s. >> threats of ebola. threats of terrorism. ebola. obama has no plan. >> reporter: and it isn't just ads. in kentucky voters received an ominous envelope. labeled election violation notice. it turned out to be a mailer from the state gop attacking the democratic senate candidate who's now suing. liberal groups looking to boost african-american turnout in georgia, sent out these flyers warning, if you want to prevent another ferguson vote. and they invoked the killing of florida teen trayvon martin in a radio ad against north carolina republican thom tillis. >> tillis even led the efforts to pass -- >> reporter: tillis called it race baiting. >> i think it's another example of a desperate campaign. >> reporter: his opponent democratic say in kay hagan
7:16 am
agreed. >> i think injecting that kind of issue in politics is wrong. i think there's a time and a place to have a dialogue on those issues, but i'm totally against fear tactics. >> fear in politics is nothing new. >> ultimately at the end of the campaign, you've run out of reasons to convince voters to vote for you. so you're looking to convince voters to vote against the other person or disqualify the other candidate. and of course a great way to disqualify the other candidate is to make people fearful of what might happen if that other person is elected. >> he said negative ads work. they're more likely to vote over something good than bad alone. according to one tracker, ads about ebola alone aired 734 times over just four days last week. >> wow, nancy. all right, we'll see how those work or if they didn't work. cbs news is going to have full coverage of the election starting tomorrow night on the
7:17 am
"cbs evening news with scott pelley," and we'll have campaign 2014 updates during the evening. plus scott and i will anchor a one-hour prime-time special. nancy cordes will be there. along with charlie and gale, bob schieffer, anthony mason, bill whitaker and more. that's tomorrow night on cbs. the nurse at the center of the ebola fight in maine is apologizeing to her neighbors. kaci hickox spoke with the post this weekend. she says her challenge to the state's isolation order is about fighting for something bigger than herself. the about the rights of american health workers in west africa. >> i didn't mean to bring a media storm to this community but i think unfortunately sometimes, especially when you're up against governors, you don't always have an option, right? i mean i don't feel like i was given an option. >> hickox said she will not go

7:33 am
change? >> well it was an incredibly sad day particularly for the family and a real blow for the 400 wonderful engineers and team that worked for virgin galactic and for the 800 people waiting to go to space. but we've now picked ourselves up. the team are pushing on building the next spaceship and waiting for the final report from the ntsb. we'll see if there's any changes at all we need to make to the spacecraft or was it something else that actually caused it. and last night they gave us a pretty good idea of what happened, and we need to wait for their definitive idea. >> i heard you say, sir richard, you would give a refund. has anybody asked for a refund
7:34 am
and what are they saying to you about going into space? >> what is absolutely remarkable is that on the day of the accident, two people actually signed up and paid in full to go to space as a gesture of good will toward virgin galactic. of the 800 people who signed up they always had wonderful messages of support and commitment, and we've had literally, you know hundreds of thousands of messages from the public willing virgin galactic and its team to go ahead. i'm sure if we -- you know one or two people must be naturally extremely nervous at this stage. we need to know exactly what happened to make absolutely certain it can never happen again. >> richard do you believe that this may have been more human error than mechanical error? >> all i can say is what the
7:35 am
ntsb have said. they have indicated that something may have been pressed a few seconds earlier than it should have been pressed. but, you know i really want to -- i have to let the ntsb guide people, and we will learn from what the ntsb have to say. and we'll make -- you know and if it did turn out to be human error, we would, you know obviously still need to make sure that it is impossible for something like that to happen in the future. >> i know you're planning to go and take one of your children. can you explain why you feel so passionate about this and why it's worth the risk? >> i think that most people realize we should -- we should -- we should be exploring.

of the interview you didn't see. good morning. >> good morning. one of the young men we spent time with is a convert. he's a big cheerleader for the so-called islamic state oracle car fate. he wants to see sheria law implemented throughout the west and the whole world. >> jihad or the policy is to expand the islamic state. very soon my brothers and sisters, we're going to see it expand into jordan and syria and on the shores of europe and one day, obama. >> let me understand this. the way you see this playing out with the caliphate is that essentially the ideology is going to spread like wildfire and consume all of these other nations. >> i believe that the islamic
7:38 am
state will have a foreign policy of an ex-ing countries and implementing the sheria. so i do believe one day that america and europe will one day be under the sheria and i think it is a blessing. however, i would also say that in the short term the americans and the british, they need to be very wary. >> can you understand why your views are frightening to some people? >> i understand that many people are unaware of the sheria and the blessings it can be. it's there to liberate them. >> if i come back to east london in a year's time do you think you'll be here or do you hope to be there? >> i hope i'll be there but i don't know yet. that is in the hands of god. >> he says he can't travel to syria or iraq at the moment and go and live in the caliphate because the british government monitors all of his travels but it's fair to say that many of these extremists are actually happy to stay in

call for around end to democracy. charlie? >> clarissa, do you have a sense of how many of these radical muslims there are? >> well it's important to say right off the bat, norah, that these do not -- these extremists do not in any way shape or form represent the vast majority of muslims. they're a tiny minority but very focal minority and they're absolutely emblematic of the sort of ideology

8:24 am
little bit. the last thing you can do is charge your battery down all the way at least once a month. you don't have to do it every single day. that's something we were all told a while back. now you just need to do it once a month. >> what are these new gadgets here? >> these are a couple of things that are example os the gift guide in the back. we've broken down holiday products, i thinks you might be shopping for. this is a little thing, the nomad charge key. it's a charges cable you can put on your key chain. usb, lightning adapter, mini usb, it's always with you. >> what about the camera? >> this is a little company that started on kickstarter. they make these really high-end lenses that snap opt your phone. you can get them for the iphone 6. >> we took that picture. it's like a fish aye.
