yeah. bring your phone. switch your carrier. save hundreds a year with xfinity mobile. call, click or visit a store today. a u.s. government report on climate change contains dire warnings. >> it is frightening, and it screams serious action has to be taken now. former vice president and environmentalist al gore said the president may try to hide the truth, but his own scientists and experts have made it as stark and clear as possible. another controversial figure possibly ready to flip and help robert mueller investigate the trump campaign. >> this idea that jerry corsi could implicate me, there's no evidence. >> roger stone's personal motto is admit nothing, deny anything,
launch counterattack. >> he could end up providing a critical missing link between russian hackers and wikileaks and the trump campaign. good morning, so glad to have you with us here on a saturday morning. i'm christi paul, and -- >> i'm martin savidge in for victor blackwell. great to be with you. great to be with all of you. >> president trump is spending the long holiday weekend at his estate in south florida, grappling with the real hate democrats are soon going to have control of the house of representatives. the president continues to push his legislative agenda, calling on congress to strike a bipartisan deal on border security. >> democrats have set their own agenda. on their to-do list, investigating saudi arabia and looking into the president's financial ties to the kingdom. meanwhile, a new government report details the devastating effect of unchecked climate change, warning of premature deaths and extreme economic
consequences if global warming is not addressed. we want to begin with the dire warning about the effects of climate change in america. renee marsh outlines stark realities laid out in this report. >> reporter: if you weren't paying attention to the climate change issue, this report could change that. it is frightening, and it screams serious action has to be taken now. it is the work of federal agencies and the scientific community. the report makes it clear that we are already experiencing the dangerous effects of climate change. it states that wildfire season is long now but will only get longer, burning six times more forest area per year by the year 2050. more people will be exposed to ticks to carry lyme disease that transmit viruses such as zika, west nile. higher temperatures will kill more people. it specifically looks at the midwest.
the midwest is predicted to have the largest increase in extreme temperature. according to the report, it will see an additional 2,000 premature deaths per year by the year 2090. oh, and the cost. that's going to be a big one, as well. the cost of climate change, according to the report, could range runs of billions of dollars annually. by mid century, it says it is very likely that the architect will be nearly free of sea ice in late summer. we should point out this was a congressionally mandated report released by the trump administration the day after the thanksgiving holiday when people were distracted and families are shopping. and the release time really sparking controversy and speculation that it is being buried on a day when few people will be paying attention. the report also came one day after the president tweeted, and i'm quoting, "brutal and extended cold blast could shatter all records. whatever happened to global
warming?" that tweet illustrates trump's continuous skepticism when it comes to climate change. and it directly contradicts the findings in this government report. the tweet illustrates the president's lack of understanding on the issue. as we know, climate change is best exemplified by the consistent rise in temperatures year after year, not extreme weather over a one-day period. renee marsh, cnn, washington. >> thank you. the president just this week open lead mocked the idea of climate change as americans faced the coldest thanksgiving in nearly a century. >> the scientists behind the study didn't just look at climate shifts over one day or one year. allison chinchar joins us. they looked at the long-term trends? >> yes, and they broke it down by region. that was the point of this report was to explain the impacts to the united states. and furthermore, breaking it down by region so people could understand how it is going to impact me and where i live.
so take, for example, out to the west. they really took a look at the impacts from wildfires. you know, california, for example, typically used today a wildfire season. that really doesn't exist anymore. they can now get fires pretty much any month out of the areas. for areas of the southern united states, you're going to notice more extreme weather events, hurricanes, tornadoes, or flooding events will be on the increase and become more frequent. one thing to note is that every single region is expected to experience extreme temperature swings. yes, that includes, you know, big heat waves, but it also will include cold snaps even like the one that we had on thanksgiving day for areas of the northeast. that is going to become the new norm. that's what this report is saying for these particular regions. you have to understand it's not just for the united states. when we talk about the increase of heat, it really is on a global scale. again, take a look at this -- this shows that increase of
global temperatures really at an exponential rate when you talk about since the industrial revolution and on. again, when this report breaks down the regions, it also tries to provide solutions to the problems, not just talking about the problem. take, for example, the area of the southern u.s. where flooding is going to be the big issue. the planning commission was created to address the increased flood risks. or, say, out west where wildfires are the main concern. federal forests have developed adaptation strategies to help with those risks. in the midwest where we talked about probably one of the most at-risk areas of the united states for agriculture, iowa state's use of prairie strips on the farms is meant to help reduce crop loss. this is important, guys, because two specific statistics in this report talk about agriculture losses in the future. for example, midwestern farms are expected to produce less than 75% of the corn that they
produce now. that same region could lose more than 25% of their soybean yields in the future. >> my goodness. >> thank you very much. we'll be talk about this throughout the morning. on the flip side of this, in paris, measures taken to encourage more environmentally friendly policies have not always been embraced. these are pictures that we're showing now where there are protests over rising fuel costs in paris. people there are opposed to taxes on diesel and on gas that president emmanuel macron enacted alongsides incentives to buy green or electric vehicles. thursday the french interior said that two people had died in the unrest. implementing any measure to combat climate change is going to be difficult. want to get analysis on the release of this report that we are seeing here. cnn's senior white house correspondent jeff zeleny as
well as errol lewis, spectator for cnn news. how do people sitting at home reconcile what they're hearing from this report and the direct opposite that they're hearing from our president? >> that is one of the biggest issues, i think, of this report. you did not see the president, president trump, talk about this report. you did not see anyone release this from the press room or the white house which would elevate this. the president was golfing yesterday while the report was being released by his administration. it is at odds with what he talked about, with what his policies have been. take a listen to what the president has said about climate change and why that could complicate all of this. >> the united states will withdraw from the paris climate accord. i was elected to represent the
citizens of pittsburgh, not paris. i don't think it's a hoax. i think there's probably a difference. but i don't know that it's manmade. i will say this -- i don't want to give trillions and trillions of dollars, i don't want to lose millions and millions of jobs, i don't want to be put at a disadvantage. i have a strong opinion. i want great climate. >> reporter: again, this was a congressionally mandated report that the trump administration was required to release. but they did have control of the timing of when it was released and the reality this being released on the friday after thanksgiving right before a long holiday weekend certainly was not designed to shine a spotlight on it. we heard the president talk about so many things in south florida as he spends his thanksgiving weekend, but climate change is not on that list. >> no doubt about it. so errol, to you, politically what is the consequence for the
president? >> look, politically, the president has made clear where he's coming from on this, right. he releases it in the middle of a news hole and goes to play golf. he's literally playing games when we should be talking about serious long-term planning. to that extent, i guess he's focused on 2020 and his re-election. he's been doing campaign rallies just about every other week for several months. so this is somebody who is focused on the very, very short term and his own interests rather than the long term and the national interests. so this kicks it down to the governors, the mayors, the regional commissions, the counties, and of course every voter, every viewer now watching this. we're going to figure out what we're going to do. i think americans are pretty much used to this. when it comes to your retirement planning, when it comes to saving for college, when it comes to -- i live in a 100-year-old house that i hope to leave to my son at some point, you know, we're used to thinking about the long term, it's just we're doing it without
guidance from washington. >> so jeff, i want to switch gears a little bit. we're also when we talk about planning, we're in the last days of gop control of the house. it is going to be different for president trump once january rolls around. adam schiff vowing to investigate the president and the saudi-trump financial ties if there are any to be had there. what do you think the president is in for come january when we have that switchup? >> that is such a good point. the president is about a month and a few days away from a new order in washington. and the president got a taste of that just yesterday when he again was on the golf course here in florida. when adam schiff, the incoming chairman of the house intelligence committee, said that he and his committee plan to investigate the -- if there
is any link between the u.s. government and the trumps and the saudi kingdom in terms. finances, other matters. they want to drill down into why the president continues to embrace saudi arabia as opposed to call them out over what the cia has concluded was a direct role in the death of "washington post" columnist jamal khashoggi. so what the president is going to say is a different washington. a check on the white house for the first time. behind the scenes they are preparing in terms of lawyers. the white house counsel's office, preparing for investigations. the democrats can also overreach here. some democrats talking impeachment, but that's been tamped down by leadership. there will be oversight hearings, there will be investigations. so that will be something that is much different than anything the trump administration has dealt with during their first two years in office.
>> no doubt about it. as jeff said, talking about the investigation into a saudi-trump relationship, the democrats have wanted to see president trump's tax returns since the campaign in 2016. is this their way of trying to get there? >> well, i think they can't do what was just described without getting that kind of information. if it's not the tax returns themselves, it would certainly be within their power and -- and relevant to the inquiry to get into contracts, business dealings, arrangements, shell corporations, flows of cash. the easiest way to do it in many cases is to get the tax return. keep in mind, this is a president who has a very opaque financial life. you know, the individual tax return might not tell you as much as trying to understand the enormous range of the hundreds of limited liability corporations and other corporate structures that are part of the trump organization. >> all errol, always appreciate
your perspectives. thank you very much, gentlemen. ahead, the last letter and american missionary left behind before he was killed on a remote island off india. we'll tell you what it said. also, two of golf's all-time greats taking their rivalry to a new level. right? >> certainly did. it was billed as "the match." tiger woods and phil mickelson with $9 million on the line. it took 22 holes to decide it. all the thrilling action is just ahead.

new developments in the russia investigation. roger stone's associate jerome corsi said that he is in plea negotiations with special counsel robert mueller's team. corsi could face a number of charges ranging from perjury to okay obstruction of justice in regards -- perjury to obstruction of justice in regards to his relationship with julian assange and roger stone. corsi said he expects to be indicted for giving false information to the special
counsel or one of the other grand jury. during a radio interview, roger stone was on the defense and said that there is no wayincrim result of this deal. >> this idea that jerry corsi could implicate me, there's simply no evidence whatsoever that would show that i knew about the source or the content of any alleged a although stolen emails -- allegedly stolen emails or allegedly hacked emails that were published by wikileaks. just not so. >> back with me to discuss this is cnn political commentator errol lewis. good to see you. >> good morning, martin. >> so it appears that we have another indictment that is looming here. so what does this mean for the investigation, and does roger stone, should he be as confident as he seems to sound? >> i think jerome corsi and roger stone have a great deal to worry about. both men have basically suggested that they expect to be indicted. there's a reason for that which is in both cases they've tried to maintain a kind of too cute
by half arm's length distance that they claim from the president and the campaign in 2016 that no serious observer would really believe. they acted as if they were, oh, i'm not really part of the campaign, but i do talk with a candidate from time to time. okay, fine. you talk with the candidate from time to time. you seem to have this amazing knowledge about a lot of the things that came up that clearly suggests that you were a go between or you were either in cahoots with, in league with, or aware of a lot of shady things that were going on that are the subject of this probe. and if they compounded the problem by lying to mueller, byby lying to investigators, that's a crime. i think they're both in a world. trouble. there's a certainly delicious irony to it, of course, because both roger stone and jerome corsi benefited and for years gleefully spread this birther lie -- >> right --
>> -- that was part of how donald trump came into politics. so, you know, you tell these lies all the time, when are you facing the possibility of prosecution to say, oh, now i'm telling the truth, well, you know, tell it to the grand jury. we'll see what's what. >> i know we ask this a lot, but it's worth asking again -- does this give us an indication that this probe is going to be ending any time soon? >> i think, you know, the tea leaves are very hard to read because the prosecutor's office has been really inscrutable, airtight. you don't get a lot of leaks. in this case, you know, it's jerome corsi himself saying i expect certain things to happen. the mueller team never says anything. i think we are going to get to the truth. and the probably we should keep in mind is not going to be the end of the process, it's ape marker. once the information is provided, either to the justice department and/or to congress,
will there be another rounds of things that happen. if we think back to watergate, it was a special prosecutor in can democrat with, not -- tandem with, not close coordination, but independent probe by congress as well as the special prosecutor enabled the public to arrive at the truth. that's what i would expect in this case, as well. >> all right. we'll wait for that to happen. thank you very much for joining us. >> thank you, martin. the former director of the cia and national security agency michael hayden suffered a stroke this week. a family said he was at home when it happened and he, quote, is receiving expert medical care for which they are grateful. cia director gina pahaspel offed wishes for speedy recover. he served during the george w. bush and obama administrations and retired in 2009. coming up, an american missionary's last letter shows how he feared for his life before going to a remote island

promising not to leave their homes behind. >> mainly a retirement community. i'm not sure it's going to be that same kind of community. we'll see. paradise has been a community that's can-do, has always found a way to get back on its feet. it will again. it may be a different group getting back on its feet. >> reporter: ryan young, paradise, california. we have details of a letter an american missionsary wrote before -- missionary wrote before he was killed on a restricted remote island off of india. john chau gave the letter to fishermen before he left their boat for the last time. if it shows he -- it shows he knew of the dangers. >> he thought, i think it's worth it to declare jesus to these people. please do not be angry at them or god if i get killed. it's believed that chau was killed during his mission trip to the island. paolo sandoval with the details for us. >> reporter: this is one of the
oldest and most isolated tribes in the world, and authorities say they're responsible for last week's killing of american missionary john allen chau. this archived footage from survival international provides some of the few existing images of the tribe known as the sintinalese, they live in isolation. according to officials, chau illegally paid fishermen to take him to the isolated island hoping to convert the tribe to christianity. authorities believe he first canoed to shore on november 16th, deliberately disregarding an established perimeter around the island. according to entries left and share with the "washington post," the 26 wrote, "i holle d hollered, moo i name y name is love you, and jesus loves you." he was shot with an arrow. the next day he made a second
attempt but never returned. the fishermen he hired later said they saw the body baueried on the beach by -- buried on the beach by tribe members. his last entry read, "i think it's worthwhile to declare geez us to these people. god, i don't want to die." in 2016, sthe same tribe killed two poachers illegally fishing near the island. it's believed the natives' decision to remain isolated should be respected. >> they've made it clear they don't want contact. somebody comes, they have no idea what he's coming for and why. you know, i think it's far more self-defense than it is murder. >> reporter: on social media, chau's family wrote their salon loved god, life, helping these in need, and had nothing but love for the people. we forgive those reportedly responsible for his death, they wrote. all they can do to wait is to find out when or if their son's body will be recovered. paolo sandoval, cnn, new york.
