4:01 am
international pressure and deploys his military to fight the fires. we'll have the latest on what some are calling ecocide. is it the first death caused by vaping? we'll look at the case of an adult whose illness matches the recent outbreak of severe lung disease and those who use e-cigarettes. and in our continuing series "who we are," we go back two years to hurricane harvey and meet the 26-year-old and the young volunteers who are rebuilding homes and restoring lives. but first we begin this morning with a look at today's "eye opener," your world in 90 seconds. seeing a lot of the leaders who are friends of mine for the most part. wouldn't say it's 100% of the case, but forthe most part. >> president trump arrives for the g7 sum milt. >> apparently not a fan of these get-togethers. >> president trump is not one to
4:02 am
back down and the leaders here are not strong enough to challenge him. >> it started out as a "stand your ground" trial, a jury found michael drejka guilty of manslaughter. >> this man is a vigilante. he's the monster. he's the murderer. >> supreme court justice ruth bader ginsburg has had another bout of cancer. >> she just completed three weeks of radiation treatment. >> they e've been tackling the fires in the rain forest. >> there are low humidity and strong winds that add to the challenge. >> he bested the competition. >> i'm honored. i'm just stoked. >> all that -- >> here at the 9th, 230 yards, watch this. and a well deserved roar and high five. >> -- and all that matters --
4:03 am
>> totally asleep. >> a driver caught on camera sleeping behind the wheel of a speeding tesla. >> i haven't checked the dmv manual, but i'm guessing it's illegal to sleep while driving a car. >> -- on "cbs this morning: saturday." >> the first day back is never easy, and getting into a routine can obviously take its toll. that's something 5-year-old lucy knows all about. before-and-after photographs showing how she went through a transformation on her first day back to school. >> an eventful first day at a glasgow school. >> i love when they asked her how the first day was. nothing happened. it was fun. >> fantastic. well done, lucy. >> i love the way they talk about her in those muted tones. well done, lucy. >> that's a good day for some. >> that's my kind of girl, that's all i can say.
4:04 am
living life. welcome to the weekend, everyone. i'm michelle miller along with jeff glor and dana jacobson. this morning we're going to take you to the great smoky mountains. that's where a single solitaire stone gone missing from the park has turned into an imptant lesson for one young girl, and for the millions of visitors to our national parks. it is a great story, and it's coming up. then from the wildfire of the great outdoors to something wild appearing indoors, we're going to look at the rise of animal cafes. businesses that let you play with common and uncommon animals of all stripes. we'll go to japan where the trend was popularized and see what soon may appear here in the states. and from tom hanks turn as mister rogers, to a return to downton abbey. that's all coming up. but we begin this morning with president trump arriving in france for the start of the g7
4:05 am
summit. he's just arrived. he may get an icy reception as he meets with leaders of canada, france, germany, italy, japan, and the united kingdom. his arrival comes as iran and north korea make new claims about test firing missiles. the dow lost more than 600 points. president trump fired back on twitter by increasing tariffs already placed on china and for tariffs scheduled to bihm posed on september 1st. paula reid is traveling with the president in southwestern france. paula, good morning. >> good morning. dana, historically this event has been a symbol of international cooperation, but today these leaders are divided on pretty much every issue from iran to trade, and president trump arrives here in france in an increasingly isolated position just at a time when he could use some international
4:06 am
support with his trade war with china. >> we're having a little spat with china. >> china is not even part of the g7, but it is expected to dominate the conversation at this year's summit after the world's two largest economies dramatically escalated their ongoing trade war. >> i think our tariffs are very good for us. we're taking in tens of billions of dollars. china's paying for it. >> on friday, china unveiled retaliatory tariffs on roughly $75 billion worth of u.s. goods. president trump responded by announcing he would increase existing tariffs. earlier in the day he ordered u.s. companies to find alternatives to manufacturing goods in china, encouraging them to move production to the u.s. the national retail federation released a statement saying it is unrealistic for american retailers to move out of the world's second largest economy as 95% of the world's consumers live outside our borders. the president fired back. >> i have the absolute right to
4:07 am
do that. we'll see how that goes. but i have the absolute right. >> president trump has repeatedly tried to deflect blame for any u.s. economic turmoil to federal reserve chairman jerome powell. >> no, i'm not happy with jay powell. i don't think he's doing a good job at all. i don't think he's much of a chess player. >> in a speech friday, powell highlighted the fed's limited power saying setting trade policy is the business of congress and the administration, not that of the fed. president trump responded back tweeting, my only question is who is our bigger enemy, jay powell or chairman xi. last year's g7 became six against one as captured in this photo. president trump refused to sign theraditional agreement at the end of the summit and left early amid disputes over trade. this year the leaders are not expected to sign a joint agreement at the end of the summit, but they are expected to engage in discussions about
4:08 am
iran, the global economy, and even whether russia should get to rejoin the group after being kicked out in 2014 over the annexation of crimea. the first meeting will be with britain's new prime minister boris johnson tomorrow morning. jeff. >> paula, thank you very much. melanie zanona joins us from politico. good morning. >> good morning. >> this tit for tat continues. how does all of this factor into the g7 summit today? >> the president is entering the meeting in a very sour mood. he's frustrated over the lack of progress. he's also anxious over the signs that there could be an economic downturn. his crown jewel is the economy. there's no secret he doesn't like the global meetings. in fact, he has sparred with some of the leaders he will come face-to-face with over the weekend. he didn't sign the declaration which has gone on for decades.
4:09 am
>> he goes one better by calling for a pullout of all american businesses. just how realistic is that? >> it's very unclear. you talk to some republicans on capitol hill, what does he mean, and no one knows, not even in the white house, what he means. this is just another example of the president sort of making policy by tweet and then his aides having to sort of scramble on the back end and come up with something. but you did hear the president come out with something and say we're going to be tougher on china, they're upping the trade war and in creasing tariffs. there is confusion on capitol hill as to the direction the president is going in. >> that seems to be some of the norm this week and even gun control, backing off of what he has said. he used words like "closing one" in referring to himself. no one seems to worry about the base, but is there any point where it gets to be stoo much for the base even? >> look. the republicans have stood by the president time and time
4:10 am
again from controversy to controversy. the one area that makes them most nervous is the economy. if there's a downturn, they may not be willing to pup up with the rhetoric and tweets. he's lovi ee's losing approval. the political winds have changed especially in the suburbs where we did see a revolt against president trump in 2018, but you have to keep in mind in the red and rural states gun control is still widely unpopular, and there are republican senators up for re-election in some of the states including mitch mcconnell, the senate majority leader. >> former vice president joe biden raised brows last night in a campaign in new hampshire. i think we have the clip. let's listen to that. >> two political heroes were martin luther king and bobby kennedy. miocene yore semester, they were both shot and killed.
4:11 am
imagine what happened if, god forbid, barack obama would have been assassinated. what would happen in america. >> you have joe biden talking about what would have happened if barack obama had been assassinated. why would you bring that up? >> i'm sure others are wondering. he's made a couple of gaffes at the ohio state fair. there's a lot of anxiety in the democratic party about whether this can affect his electability. it gives ammo to president trump. there are others who say we can't beat up on every little thing for all of these candidates because whoever does get the nominee is going to be more damaged in the general election. >> how many democrats in the next debate? >> more and more are dropping
4:12 am
out by the day. we'll have to wait and see. >> thank you very much. tomorrow morning on "face the nation" right here on cbs, margaret brennan's guests will include senator amy klobuchar. president trump wished supreme court justice ruth bader ginsburg well before leaving for the g7. the high court said on friday justice ginsburg had just completed three weeks of radiation therapy for a cancerous tumor. ed o'keefe reports. >> reporter: the tumor was detected on juice it is ginsburg's pancreas during a routine blood test and a biopsy at the end of july confirmed a localized mag lil informant tumor. she tolerated treatment well and no further treatment is needed at this time. dr. david agus, a cbs medical contributor and cancer specialist said aggressive surgery was not an action given her age and frail condition.
4:13 am
>> the treatment was somewhat limited to just treating that lesion with radiation therapy. >> reporter: the 86-year-old ginsburg has battled cancer before. last december she had part of her lung removed after cancer was discovered, forcing her to miss a court session for the first time in 26 years. a decade ago she was treated for pancreatic cancer. ginsburg's health is a perpetual concern in washington given the court's narrow 5-4 conservative advantage, but she vows to serve as long as she's able. >> there was a senator i think after the pancreatic cancer who announced with great glee that i was going to be dead within six months. that senator, whose name i've forgotten, is now himself dead, and i am very much alive. >> reporter: the supreme court reconvenes on the first monday
4:14 am
in october, and justice ginsburg has been keeping a busy schedule. on thursday night she was spotted on broadway attending a production of "moulin rouge." turning to another health scare, world leaders at the g7 could be ready to declare the raging wildfires burning in the amazon rain forest, an international crisis. brazil contains about 60% of the amazon rain forest. kenneth craig issing traing the latest developments. good morning. >> good morning to you, dana. the amazon rain forest produces a significant part of the planet's oxygen and is a critical part of containing climate challenge. last night the president anoungsed a plan in his televised speech.
4:15 am
brazilian president jair bolsonaro said he'll be taking a tough approach to battling the devastating fires burning through parts of the amazon. bolsonaro who has reduced funding and has reelectioned restrings on logging has promised to send armed forces to the region to help douse flames. fires are deliberately set by farmers and loggers clearing the land. but both have suggested environmental groups may be responsible for setting the fires in retaliation for reduced funding from his administration. hundreds of protesters marched the streets of rio de janeiro as he announced he would be joining the fight. images of the fires have spread around the globe, sparking protests outside of the brazilian embassies in south america and united kingdom and
4:16 am
international pressure is building on brazil from world leaders. french president emmanuel macron plans to bring the fires to the forefront at the g7 summit this weekend. britain's prime minister boris johnson and germany's angela merkel shocking. and they'll start to work on it today. france's president accuses bolsonaro of lying about the situation and would impose a ban on a strayed deal. >> we'll have more coming up. hours after promising to remain america's biggest threat north korea launched two more suspected short-range ballistic missiles. this sometime it fired toward
4:17 am
the sea of japan. this marks the seventh weapons launch in a month. on friday north korea's foreign minister suggested launches will continue in protest of u.s.-led sanctions on the north. president trump downplayed the latest launches and said, quote, we never restricted short-range missiles. in hong kong this morning police fired tear gas to disperse pro-democracy demonstrators in their latest round of protests there. demonstrations in the city have been going on for the past three months. the initial call was to scrap a bill to widen the demand for full democracy. at one point protesters took down a street light today thought to be a so-called smart lamp post. they believe the chinese government is using the lamp posts to ramp up surveillance in the city. hurricane season is intensifying with the possibility of two names storms, and one of the systems forming in the atlantic could leave
4:18 am
florida soaked this weekend. i see a lot of red and orange. jeff ber dell will is there with that and the rest of the weather for the nation. good morning. >> it's been eerily quiet over the past couple of weeks. that's about to change. a very disorganized disturbance. it won't form yet until it gets back out over the gulfstream and moves to the north. you can see on the radar, showers and thunderstorms, some heavy downpours, but not much yet. it will change in a couple of days. this is a look at future radar. once it gets over the gulfstream, it will start spinning. eventually it could become a strong tropical storm or hurricane. the biggest impact to the coastline likely very rough surf. across the southeast this weekend, a lot of areaings of concern. some of the biggest severe weather in the plain states and a lot of tropical moisture in the gulf of mexico is going to inundate places along the south coast of indiana. so the heaviest rain will not be
4:19 am
there. some ban patches 2 to 4 inches, but the biggest threat, the southern part of louisiana could pick up as much as ten inches of rain, and scattered all across the southeast, lots of heavy rain as well. in las vegas, the deep southwest temperature is 100 to 105 degrees. we're watching two areas in the tropics. we could have tropical storm dorian and erin within the next couple of days. >> thanks. time to show you some of the other stories making news this morning. kmov-4 in st. louis reports as 8 yrt girl was killed and three others injured in a shooting near a high school. the little girl died on the
4:20 am
scene. a woman and two others are in stable condition. the tampa bay time reports a man has been found guilty of manslaughter in the fatal shooting of an unarmed man over a parking dispute. michael drejka was on trial for killing markeis mcglockton last year. drejka confronted mcglockton's girlfriend for parking in a handicapped space whoo mcglockton went into the store. video shows mcglockton pushed drejka who drew his gun. he then fired as mcglockton backed away. drejka faces up 230 years in prison. the "los angeles times" reports health officials are warned anyone who visited disneyland and other southern california attractions last week may have been exposed to measles. a teenage girl from new zealand traveled to los angeles while she was sick with meesals. authorities say she visited several hot spots including l.a.x., disneyland, and the santa monica pier. those who may have been exposed

"usa today" reports doctors had to remove a dime-sized venomous spieder from a woman ice ear. the missouri woman had complained of an earache. she thought it was because of an allergy shot she had recently taken. but after the swshing sound would not go away, she went to the doctor. and they found a brown recluse spider in her ear canal. luckily the spider did not bite. it can cause chills, fever e nausea and others. >> i can't look at spiders. can't do it. >> what's happening here. >> the fact that she was feeling all that and the spider didn't bite. can you imagine. >> and then when you pull it out -- >> okay, stop. we're moving on now. we've got one more paper. the "san francisco chronicle" reports it was a triumphant return for a northern california high school football team that took to the field for the first time since the deadliest wildfire in state history.

4:27 am
what do you say to people who say that voter i.d. laws or exact match policies are essentially protecting the election process. >> first of all, voter fraud is a myth. it does not exist. people are not putting on fake mustaches trying to vote twice, but voter suppression is real. we know voter i.d. laws seem perfectly normal, but if you live in alabama, they also shut down two-thirds, i believe, of the organizations of the dmvs in black communities so that the very people who needed those i.d.s would not be able to get them. if you live in indiana where they moving your polling place outside of the bounds of the city, if you didn't have a car, you didn't get to vote. what we have to recognize is
4:28 am
these laws seem very basic, but the application and the implication is that your vote doesn't matter, and that's why fairfig fairfight2020.org goes beyond registration. we focus on protection, making sure you get on the rolls, stay on the rolls, and that your vote can be cast and balloted. >> some say the voting is rigged. i see you nodding. that's a frightening word. does it contribute to a possible scenario where people on either side of a possible outcome don't accept the results? >> there's a lot to be made of i don't concede. president trump refuses to acknowledge the legal sufficiency or threatens not to. as long as we have eligible american citizens who cannot cast a ballot, then it's rigged.
4:29 am
in a democracy you should be allowed to make your voice heard. as long as t t happens, that's
4:30 am
a couple on a california freeway captured on video a driver fast asleep behind the wheel of a tesla. th coupl estimates the tesla was going about 75 miles an hour on interstate 5 just passed out there. they say the car did not weave and stayed in its lane. they also say the man woke up and grabbed the wheel before anyone got hurt. >> for one fleeting second i saw a guy sleeping behind the wheel of his car and we have a large truck and so we're a little bit high up off the ground and i was able to see him easily. >> you're not suppose dodd that, right? it's generally advised to not
4:31 am

4:33 am
they said your lung has collapsed. you have to go to surgery right now. >> reporter: they say it's thc or illegal drugs that are to plame for these acute lung injuries but health authorities say they're still investigating. they're still looking to see if there's a common thread that ties these cases together nationwide. for "cbs this morning: saturday," anna werner, chicago. so scary. i talked with a doctor on cbsn about this and really one of the biggest concern about this is with teenagers and young smokers because they're seeing more cases. those lungs are still developing, and it's just not good for them. >> such mixed messaging for kids there. they're told it's better than cigarettes. at the same time, with don't have all of the information. >> knowing what's in it. >> that's exactly it. well, a piece of the park back where it belongs. still ahead, how a young girl's guilt over a swiped souvenir led to its heartwarming return to the smoky mountains. but first here's a look at the

since president trump decided to walk away from the iran nuclear deal in may of last year, tensions between our two nations have steadily increased. punishing economic sanctions have been reimposed. but while those sanctions are intended to hurt the iranian government, every day people are also paying a price. imtiaz tiab has gotten a rare look inside iran and spoke with some of those affected. >> reporter: after hours of negotiations we were finally given permission by iranian authorities to travel aboard this fishing boat. steering us deep into iran's maritime tear tissue, the view from here may seem peaceful, but
4:39 am
make no mistake, these waters are an international flashpoint that has everyone in the region on edge. 20-year-old mohammad has been traveling the straight of hormuz since he was a little boy. are you worried that an accident could happen and we see a dwight between americans and iran? >> yes. >> reporter: serious concerns on the high seas. but this waterway is vital. on any given day, around $1.3 billion worth of crude passes through the strait. and iran's navy chief says any threat to iranian interests would lead to an all out war. here in the local market people are really feeling the pinch, much like millions of iranians across the country since president trump began reimposing what his administration is calling the toughest ever sanction on iran. over the past 12 months the price of staples like chicken

[ speaking non-english ] >> she's saying i worry about the war. >> reporter: back in tehran, hundreds of worshippersre here for friday prayers and more often than not to listen to fiery anti-american sermons. but this time the imam's speech was decidedly muted, other issues clearly weighing on the minds of worshippers, issue that are also weighing heavily elsewhere including at hospitals where caring for the country's most vulnerable is becoming increasingly difficult. >> iran produces most of its own
4:41 am
medicines, but when it comes to if most advanced pharmaceuticals, it relies heavily on imports, and that's how sanctions can have an effect. . >> reporter: imported pharmaceuticals have dropped by 80% in recent months and the cost for the tiny anlts of drugs that do make it has sky roktded. a reality that only adds to the agony felt by this 4-year-old's parents who've just learned his cancer is back and the cocktail of drugs he needs to stay alive simply aren't available. are people losing their lives because they can't get this drug? >> yes. >> what do you say to a parent whose child has cancer, that the drug is available outside of iran but you can't bring it to them. what do you say to them? >> i just tell them to pray and be sure that we are with you and we know your pain. >> reporter: a stark reminder that in iran, nearly every

aspect of life is affected by u.s. sanctions. for "cbs this morning: saturday," imtiaz tiab, tehran. >> fantastic reporting by imtiaz and his team and a reminder you can talk about something on a diplomatic level but if you look at it from a street level, that's the best way to look at it or the worth in most cases. >> all politics is personal. is everyone entitled to health care and should new treatments be allowed or banned? up next on "morning rounds," we'll talk with two experts and authors of a new book about the ethical dilemmas that dominate the delivery of medicine. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday." >> announcer: this portion sponsored by toyota. let's go places.

before crises happen, and i found out about that the hard way when i was just 10 years old when on a routine visit to my grandma with my mom, we found her in extreme distress. she was totally aware, but in enormous pain. we rushed her to the emergency room. the next thing i knew, my mom was confronting a doctor who asked my mom for permission to amputate my grandma's leg. and my mom said at the spur of the moment, you need to get her permission to amputate her leg and she told me afterward that she never would have for given herself had she not done that. so we want everybody to be prepared and informed about much greater conditions that exist now. >> when we began writing the book, we realized we both had stories about that. if you remember those days, you had the black-bag-toting doctor. >> house calls.
4:48 am
>> yes. you get a couple of points for remembering the term. at the same time, the relationship between the doctor and the patient was often kind of one way. now people have more information, and they expect to be more part of their decision-making, and that's a lot of what we write about. >> you also right about dialysis and how the government determined in the '70s people would get dialysis treatment, medicare paying for it, because it was life of death. but that plays into the debate now with other things. >> it does. we -- of course, it's wonderful that we take care of dialysis patients, people with end hch stage renal disease. but we also take more seriously the fak that we're not covering well people who have other serious diseases, and so part of what we want to do in the book is try to stimulate in this very partisan era a conversation about how we go about taking care of everybody who has a serious illness and not just a particular group that's been kind of marked out historically. >> what in your estimation has to change right now?
4:49 am
you talk about obamacare. you were against repeal and replace which you sailed should be revised and reinforced. what about the health system needs to be changed and what doesn't? >> so we really believe that if americans take more control over their own health care and the health care of their country, things will go better. >> how do you do that? >> well, many ways, and you can read the book for some of the ways. but one way, which we talk about, is that patients should come prepared when they -- to their caregivers, their doctors and physicians, and be prepared. be open about what you're doing with your health care, and also be clear about your goals. >> it's interesting when you talk about in the book asserting yourself and asking questions. if you're not getting the answers, continue to probe and find out what's happening to one of your relatives or yourself. >> most doctors are very concerned obviously about their
4:50 am
patients. that i want to succeed, be good health care providers, they want their patients to prosper and thrive. but in an era where there are so many options, patients need to be part of that conversation. >> i want to talk about some of the experimental treatments, gene therapies. you see so much in terms of technology, big data. where are we going or where should we be going? >> well, we're big proponents of in and affordability both, and we think we can have both. one great example, which is representative of what's happening with immunotherapy and car tee sow therapy is the case of emily whitehead who seven years ago was really -- all the treatments for her leukemia were used up, all the standard treatments, and her parents tom and emily whitehead had to decide whether basically she was
4:51 am
going to die because that was the case or to look for experimental, something experimental. and they chose the latter. they found car tee sew therapy. it happened to be at the university of pennsylvania. but now it's no longer an experimental treatment. it's actually fda approved. emily is a 14-year-old cancer-free young woman who's become a champion with her parents. >> a great story to hear. >> it's happening in all kinds of fields, and this is just one example. >> balancing all of those things. i'm sorry we're out of time. it's a great debate and a great read. it affects all of us. >> a much easier read than we expected. >> thank you so much. >> thank you. we often take home souvenirs from our summer vacations, but from our national parks. still ahead, a young visitor's

>> we'll see how people are spending quality time including an increasing exotic menagerie of animals. >> and music from the seratones in our "saturday sessions." you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday." so how do you get a kid to shift fair focus? >> first there's going to be a wide difference in study habits from a second grader versus a junior in college. >> are you sure? >> so different strategies work at different stages. one thing that applies at all stages is an idea in the book called habit stacking. and the basic idea is you take whatever habits you currently do. let's say after dinner, one habit we have is clean our plate and then put it in the dishwasher. you could stack the study habit on top of that. you could say after you put your plate in the dishwasher, you immediately open your book on the table.
4:58 am
especially as you get into school again, you're really trying to build that routine. so whether it's after dinner or as soon as you walk in from school or whatever, building a habit stack that's reliable and consistent is a good way to get started. >> does environment matter. >> of course. if you walk home and your kid sees a video game controller on the floor and the tv is on, that's an environment that you could easily be distracted, versus if you walk in and the table is cleaned, the books are out and the video controller is put away, that's prime. parents can prime the environment to make it easy to get into studying. >> in a small apartment it can be difficult. we mentioned at the top for every 15 minutes that a kid is studying, for five of those minutes the kid is probably distracted. how do you change that ratio? >> that's a good question. a lot of times we get distracted because of phones. as students get older, they get their own phones and those
4:59 am
things are always creeping in and distracting.

hi. welcome back to "cbs this morning: saturday." i'm dana jacobson with michelle miller and jeff glor. coming up this hour, the planet's lungs are on fire. the disaster unfolding in the amazon has become a worldwide concern. the president of france says it must be a top okay f this weekend's g7 summit, and we'll hear about how the brazilian military's been called up to take part in the fight. plus recalling a disaster in this country. two years ago houston got feet.
5:01 am
we'll hear from a grude of selfless and tireless volunteers. and customers at these cafes get a lift from more than just coffee and tea. the menu including the chance to interact with animals. we'll see how a trend that started with cat cafes now includes far more exotic creatures. they' that's ahead. first this hour supreme court justice ruth bader ginsburg underwent three weeks of therapy for a tumor found on her pan cree yas. there's no evidence remaining. she battled p ed cancer before. she had part of her lung removed. she's a liberal and her health is of concern in washington given the court's 5-4 majority.
5:02 am
"air force one" touched down in bordeaux just a short time ago. on friday the president upped the ante in america's trade war with china. in a series of tweets the president announced he will raise tariffs on hundreds of billions of dollars worth of chinese products, he also ordered american companies to start looking at moving away from doing business with china. it came after china announced friday morning it was raising tacks on u.s. products. the escalating trade spat sent stockmarkets tumbling. before he left for france, the president said he is not worried about the sliding stock market. >> because if you look at from november 9th, the day after the election, we were up 50% or more, up many, many points, up around 16,000, 17,000. we're up 26,000. so don't tell me about 600 points. >> the president lashed out
5:03 am
against the g7 host, france. he threatened to increase taxes on french wine in retaliation. french president emmanuel macron wants the wildfires in the amazon rain forest to be on the agenda at this weekend's g7 meeting. brazilian president jair bolsonaro authorized the military to join the fight against the fires starting today. he has in the past zreebed rain forest protection as an obstacle to his country's economic development. our next guest has spent more than a decade exploring the amazon. naturalist paul rosolie wrote about his experiences in the jungle in his 2014 book "mother of god." recently he got a first-hand look at the fires burning through the amazon. >> it's burning like this every day. there are literally millions of
5:04 am
animals in this forest that cannot escape right now, and if you think our planet can survive this every day in the amazon, you have another thing coming. >> and paul rosolie joins us in studio 57. good morning. >> good morning. thanks for having me. >> let's start with the idea. we hear why they want to have these fires burning, but there are more now than we've seen in the past. why? >> the amazon is a loop. it's producing the moisture that creates all that rain that creates the rain forest, and as we chop the rain forest -- this has been going on for decades. it's not an isolated issue. as we chop more of the rain forest, we're reaching the tipping point. it could become too dry and then you have a serious issue because you're talking about the entire amazon collapsing. >> the international community is really pushing brazil's president to do more. i'm just curious, why does he see the amazon not as what it is, the lungs of the earth and instead an obstacle to economic
5:05 am
development. >> because the standing rain forest while it ee producing o ecosystem services for all of us, it's not creating money for him. >> it's not creating soybeans for brazil. >> right. it's short-term gain versus health for everybody and long-term health of the planet. >> is that supported in brazil, that idea? his idea? >> it depends which party you even on. >> also no one knows what's going on. just this morning i saw a video of him getting out testify car. he said the ngos are doing it. he's blaming it on conservationists and he feels like it's an attack on him, you need to protect the rain forest. but this is not a political boundary. the entire nation depending on it. >> the question is how to incentivize brazil to change what they're doing to help everyone else because they're helping themselves right now. >> absolutely. >> how do you do that?
5:06 am
>> all kinds of aid and incentives can be given to brazil. but we have to re-imagine our entire relationship with nature because these problems are popping up more and more. >> everywhere. >> everywhere. then we're going to forget about it and then it gets worse and worse and at some point we're out of time. >> what can people at home do? >> so many are doing work to protect rain forests and habitats. let's not forget. i'm here as a representative for the animals. whether it's good or not for us, there are animals in the rain forest that need help. >> there are people there too. >> 20 million, exactly. >> indigenous communities living there. >> it's not going to help them if their homes are being destroyed. >> how often are loergs replanting? >> loggers would never be replanting. people are trying to replant but rain forests are ancient
5:07 am
systems. people are protecting already what's stand staingstanding. my agency, jungle keepers is working. for everybody at home, this is a moment when the global attention is focused on the rain forest and now is the chance where we can get leaders and policy makers to pay attention to this. >> thank you. >> thank you for having me. it's about seven minutes past the hour. now here's a look at the weather for your weekend. it was rainfall unlike anything ever seen in america. five feet of water dumped in just five days on the nation's fourth largest stichlt up next,

how those still feeling the effects of hurricane harvey are being aided by hurricane volunteers. their emotional mission is ahead. you're watching "cbs this morning saturday." and i recently had hi, ia heart attack. it changed my life. but i'm a survivor. after my heart attack, my doctor prescribed brilinta. it's for people who have been hospitalized for a heart attack. brilinta is taken with a low-dose aspirin. no more than 100 milligrams as it affects how well brilinta works. brilinta helps keep platelets from sticking together and forming a clot. in a clinical study, brilinta worked better than plavix. brilinta reduced the chance of having another heart attack... ...or dying from one. don't stop taking brilinta without talking to your doctor, since stopping it too soon increases your risk of clots in your stent, heart attack, stroke, and even death. brilinta may cause bruising or bleeding more easily, or serious, sometimes fatal bleeding. don't take brilinta if you have bleeding, like stomach ulcers, a history of bleeding in the brain, or severe liver problems. slow heart rhythm has been reported. tell your doctor about bleeding
5:09 am
new or unexpected shortness of breath any planned surgery, and all medicines you take. if you recently had a heart attack, ask your doctor if brilinta is right for you. my heart is worth brilinta. if you can't afford your medication, astrazeneca may be able to help. the whole world's gone crazy about food but let's not forget the best thing of all taste to us at hellman's taste is everything and we believe great taste starts with great ingredients like cage free eggs and sustainable tomatoes because at hellman's we're on the side of food. we believe nutrition is full of possibilities to improve your pet's life. we're redefining what nutrition can do. because the possibility of a longer life and a healthy life is the greatest possibility of all. purina pro plan. nutrition that performs.

5:11 am
it has been two years this weekend since hurricane harvey made landfall in texas. along with hurricane katrina, harvey stands as the costliest storm on record, with damage estimated at $125 billion. the hard work of disaster recovery in this country does not end when the headlines go away. a storm lasts hours or days, but it takes years for many to get back on their feet. most disaster response focuses on the immediate aftermath, and that is important. but who stays behind long term? who does the work even today to handle the mess left behind?
5:12 am
that story is the latest in our continuing series "who we are." >> reporter: houston had never seen anything like it, 60 inches of rain in five days. harvey damaged or destroyed 300,000 build ings and homes. two years later the recovery is far from over. >> what have the two last years been like? >> hell. >> reporter: there are people like olli and leonard goss who've lived in houston their entire lives. >> this house has been here since the '30s and it's never flooded until now. it literally knocked me off my feet. >> the water knocked you off your feet? >> it was that swift. >> reporter: the gosss escaped but were unable to rebuild their ruined home alone. >> let's go out and do the thing. >> reporter: they were saved by
5:13 am
a group called all hands and hearts. the houston operation is run by l.b. cook. >> our big thing with harvey was arrive early, stay late. >> do you think people still get that? >> no. >> reporter: cook's mostly volunteer team live together for weeks or months, eating in a community room, sleeping in small bunks. during the day they fix homes. putting up new drywall, replacing appliances, installing fixtures. they learn fast, on the job, from a 267-year-old fueled by a past disaster. cook's home in mississippi was one of hundreds of thousands destroyed by hurricane katrina in 2005. her 9-year-old sister went to the hospital for pneumonia caused by black mold. as a team leader for all haunlds and hearts, cook runs a houston operation constantly cycling in
5:14 am
and out new volunteers. she also is on the ground in puerto rico after hurricane maria. she acts as manager, worker, and friend. >> it's a lot going on, yeah. >> why do you do it? >> because somebody's got to do it, for one. and i know what it was like before i had the purpose. when you know there's something out there and you're looking for it and then you find it, it hits the spot. >> and it makes you feel good. >> yeah. my mom was here last week. she followed me to puerto rico, and i know she's proud of me. >> i'm proud of you, and i just met you. >> reporter: all hands and hearts believe they're filling a space sorely lacking. after natural disaster, fema does give money to homeowners, but it's often misspent and rarely enough to cover the full cost of rebuilding. all hands and hearts say they put their donation dollars
5:15 am
directly into labor and materials, cutting out the middlemen. here in houston the group is also rebuilding the home of 80-year-old ella hill. she lives here alone in the twilight of her life. who knows what would have happened if all hands hadn't come to the rescue. >> i like when people say how you're doing, you say blessed. >> i'm blessed. >> reporter: ella's attitude is em bodened by all hands. >> these folks have been pretty helpful, huh? >> fantastic. nobody ever does anything for me. >> well, they are. >> yes, they are. and you saw the work. >> yeah. >> fantastic. you all going to take pictures of it. >> we have, yeah. >> it's fantastic. >> i know. >> reporter: as the work at hill's home counts, at thees go's place, after seven months it's finally finishing. thees goes held hands throughout our conversation. >> not only did that beautiful refrigerator come, they brought
5:16 am
a range. i couldnd believe it. i started crying. i felt like an idiot. have you seen them? that's just what i would have picked out. >> i love that you're so happy. >> you know it. get him back in the house. he needs to get back in the house. poor thing. >> i want to give you your keys back. it's all yours now. orr our cameras were rolling when the keys were handed over. thees goes were finally home again. that night the project was celebrated by the entire team. the coordinator of the project, one of l.b. cook's team leaders has been working with thees goes every day from start to finish. >> we completed the house and he said we oh fish alley made him happy again. >> what do you think you're able to do that other groups aren't. >> we're still here and every day we're working on different ways to close the gap, to reach more people, to stay longer.
5:17 am
how can we use our resources to do good work and empower people to be able to move forward with their lives. >> selfless and unconditional dedication. >> you almost made her cry. you almost made me cry. it's just a beautiful thing to see when somebody gets their home back, how much that means, some stranger helping them. >> and the people working on it are 50 o60 years younger than them, never knew them before, dedicate a year of their lives to making someone happy. >> and you'd be surprised how many of these organizations -- i call them pop-ups -- are doing exactly what this one about is doing. there's one called sbp. they started after hurricane katrina. it is amazing. someone is moved, inspired to help because they see a need. >> and the next disaster will happen. >> no doubt. >> it certainly will. >> we hope they will be there for them as well. coming up on "cbs this
