okay, but you got to be persist sent. that's what it comes down to. you've got to be out there and swinging. and you may miss 1,000 times, but that 1,001 time it's going to go over the fence, right? thousands of travelers around the world are stranded after a tour operator collapses. plus, president trump finding a new reason to dig up his favorite phrase, witch-hunt, and -- >> the people -- >> prince harry and meghan are touring south africa including a town so gripped by gang violence even the first responders are afraid to go in. hello and welcome to our viewers in the united states and from all around the world, i'm roesmary church at cnn world headquarters in atlanta and this is "cnn newsroom."
good to have you with us. 600,000 travelers worlden wide are stranded after one thomas cook, one of the largest tour operators collapsed. all of its bookings have been canceled and the uk is launching what is being dubbed the largest peacetime repatriation to bring home the company's british customers and maybe some others. cnn spoke to a uk aviation official about this a short time ago. >> in terms of what we're after we have launched a repatriation program and have outbound 150,000 passengers in different parts of different parts of the world and we have launched a repatriation exercise so when we will get to the end they will be brought back to the uk.
we're bringing 150,000 back to the uk and charted 40 planes and going to be running up to a thousand flights over the next two weeks. >> and we have more on all this. we heard there 150,000 british travelers, but we're talking about 600,000 travelers stranded across the globe. how can they all get brought home? >> well, unfortunately the repatriation program that's being run by the united kingdom doesn't apply to customers if their vacation plan did not originate from the uk. so thomas cook is really advising folks to visit the website for next steps and next updates but i can tell you i have been to that website and combed through it. i have not read all of it but i did not see any details for folks who do not qualify for the repatriation program. so we're potentially looking at hundreds of thousands of thomas cook travelers that will be
stranded abroad and responsible for getting home out of their own wallets. the other thing that is a part of this repatriation program is that it does not apply to folks who have only booked a vacation that only includes hotels so the repatriation basically getting your flight back home to the uk only applies to you if you have booked a vacation that includes air travel, unfortunately if you are a thomas cook traveler who has only booked a hotel you will be responsible for that hotel bill. the civil aviation authority is advising folks who fall under that umbrella to check with their travel insurance companies to see if they can qualify for some kind of refund. >> that is a real concern for all of those people left stranded. thank you so much for that. we appreciate it. let's turn now to global
business execute ryan patel joining us live from los angeles. good to have you with us. this is a tough day for thomas cook. its employees and the 600,000 travelers stranded across the globe and we just heard there only about 150,000 or so of those 600,000 have this repatriation program in place at this stage and even that on the website is very confusing. how are they ever going to get all of those people back home? >> well, the way that was explained it's complete chaos right now. i mean they're going to have to figure out -- every agency has to get involved. you see in certain countries insurance companies are actually stepping in to be able to get them to come back home but at the end of the day, you know, this is -- this is something that many other companies should be looking at of how situations got this bad and hoi do you really take care of the
consumer. this is to get them back home, something that will take more than just one company, it's going to take a few countries to make sure everybody gets home in an orderly fashion because as you know, to be in a situation like that, on the road traveling and not knowing how you'll get home is pretty disturbing on multiple levels. >> yeah, it's horrendous, isn't it? if they haven't included airfares with thomas cook then they're pretty much on their own to find their own way back which seems very unfair under the circumstances so let's look at how this could happen. we know thomas cook's stocks were plummeting due in part to brexit apparently. but how did it actually collapse? >> well, you know, this is such a historic company and the uk has been around for hundreds and hundreds of years and i think the way they're downfall started didn't start this past six months or brexit. online competition really taking a hit to their high street locations, right.
high rent, high occupancy costs and focus on what's happening with brexit and with the geopolitical travel patterns have changed the way people have been traveling, right? that took a huge effect and they have $1.7 billion in debt. they couldn't get another lend story help bail them out to be able to keep the operations going. that's such a high clip for them to continue going that, again, the ceo came out today, didn't want to close it, to file bankruptcy and go into that process but had no choice and, again, it's kind of a foreseeable future but you kind of see it coming but, listen, all other airline industries should be taking notice because you have have to keep up with competition and keep up with your -- at the end of the day your bottom line to stay healthy. >> you have to ask, if the world's oldest and largest tour operator is unable to withstand the pressures and concerns
surround brexit where does that leave other smaller companies british or otherwise? >> well, actually, you know, you think about other countries like spain and turkey, places where they had a huge presence in creating this economy of tourism, will that take a hit? of course it will. does it mean they will go to different agencies? maybe but it makes it less long-term standing. there is an effect because there is a hole left in the market people were using this. what does that mean for small businesss? it means you better get your act together real quickly to jump in at the opportunistic time right now or you're going to be able to have to move with the times and move to the e-commerce platform to acquire consumers. when a big brand like that it provides a lot of concern in that industry to see what's next. people are really risk averse about using more investment. >> yeah, absolutely. and also red flags for the british prime minister as he tries to find a path toward
brexit. we'll see what happen there is. ryan patel, always a pleasure to chat with you. many thanks. >> thank you. well, u.s. president donald trump is defiant after reports he asked ukraine's president to dig up dirt on a political rival. he's defending the move and says he wants his call with the president there released. >> you'll be okay with the ukrainian government releasing their version of the transcript. >> i think their version is the same os our version. it would be identical but they did. they put out a major statement last night and in the statement they said it was a very, very fine conversation and there was no pressure, no nothing. there was no pressure. that was not pressure. i know when i give pressure and that was not pressure. >> mr. trump's call surfaced after a whistle-blower complaint. it appears he was trying to revive allegations about democratic presidential
candidate joe biden and his family. the story goes that the former vice president shielded his son hunter from a corruption probe in ukraine to be clear, there is no evidence of that and the accusations have been widely discredited. we get more now from cnn's jeremy diamond. >> president donald trump is face agent whistle-blower complaint alleging among other things that he pressured the ukrainian president to investigate one of his political visitals, joe biden. all of that happening as the president was withholding military aid to ukraine but none of that stopped the president were shying away from this political controversy. instead the president is using it to pump up these unverified claims about joe biden. >> what you have to do is look at the corruption on the democrat side and how the witch-hunt started. now they want to try to start another witch-hunt but unfortunately this one is reverting now to joe biden.
because he's done some very bad things. i'm not looking to hurt him, to be honest. he needs all the help he can get. i'm not looking to hurt him. i'm not looking to hurt his family. but the corruption and what he said is a terrible thing. >> now, as the president muddies the water you can use him using the term witch-hunt which the president used repeatedly to refer to robert mueller. the president going after the credibility of that whistle-blower as well calling that individual a partisan, a political hack despite the fact that he does not know the identity of that whistle-blower and that's also despite the fact that the inspector general appointed by president trump has deemed it credible. this is not going anywhere. the president will head to the united nations later this week where he will meet with the ukrainian president and also on capitol hill you will have the acting director of national intelligence heading to the
senate intelligence committee to brief those officials on this whistle-blower complaint. jeremy diamond, cnn, ohio. >> iran's president is telling foreign troops to stay away from the gulf calling their presence problematic. rouhani says he will create security in the region. iran is expected to hold talks with several countries during this week's general assembly but appears the u.s. will not be one of them. president donald trump says he does not intend to meet with iran but adds nothing is off the table. this comes after the u.s. said it would send more troops to saudi arabia in response to this month's oil attack. again, iran has denied being a part of it but saudi arabia holds tehran responsible and says it does not want conflict. >> we don't want war. the u.s. doesn't want war but it's really up to the iranians if they keep continuing along
this path they risk the possibility of military action but nobody wants war. everybody wants to resolve this peacefully and the end result has to be an end to iran's aggressive policies. >> cnn's nick paton walsh has more from tehran. >> reporter: president trump says he's not going to talk to iran at the u.n. general is assembly meeting. his message is trying to be cheer and hold out the possibility that happenstance might change that. his secretary of state mike pompeo has said clearly talking to u.s. media on sunday that they want to give diplomacy every opportunity. i think he's more talking about trying to get an international coalition around saudi arabia and how military force after some days of bluster from the white house isn't likely to be used, iran has been clearer. it's foreign minister saying they will not be talking to the united states in any way, shape or form until the sanctions that were reimposed when the trump administration pulled out of the
nuclear deal alleviated yet again and iran's president hassan rouhani will turn up monday, use this day which is the anniversary of the start of the brutal iran/iraq war of the '80s to discuss a peace initiative where he will focus on tanker traffic trying to de-escalate tensions and focus on the departure of foreign forces, his euphemism for the united states who will be sending they said dozens, possibly hundred more troopses to back up air defenses there. what you learn from the last week this escalated tension here, well, you might say donald trump was willing to offer north korea talks without anything being surrendered or being offered by north korea first. iran decides it wants to get concessions from the u.s. before it's even willing to negotiate with them and also too there has been this week in which military retaliations have been held out as a possibility by u.s. president always willing to talk
about how they have the best military force in the world. but it was never used and instead although the u.s. and saudi arabia have yet to provide evidence to point to iran being behind the attacks on the oil refineries in terms of whether it was launched from iran's territory we're dealing with a stark accusation from washington and one that's not been met by a military confrontation. iran always denied involvement but i'm sure long-term analysts will be looking at exactly what it means for the u.s.' willingness to intervene in the gulf. >> cnn's christiane amanpour sat down with iran's foreign minister ahead of the general assembly. she asked him about the diplomatic stalemate with the united states. >> prime minister, are you saying that there's a plan afoot to close the doors to negotiation by the u.s. president? >> i think the only reason they would redesignate our central bank is to make it impossible or
very difficult for this president or his successor to remove the name from the list. the bar is very high now. and i think those who propose this to president trump wanted to close the door to negotiations, not during his president by but after it. >> a hard line element like the one you're describing in the united states in iran also wants to see doors to diplomacy closed. >> there may be people but the leadership in iran is more prudent to fall in their trap. >> and you can catch christiane's entire interview with him on monday 1:00 p.m. in new york, 6:00 p.m. in london. and 1:00 a.m. tuesday in hong kong. well, u.n. meetings have the reputation for being all talk, little action. but a new report shows when it
comes to climate change. we may not have time to waste. we'll have the details for you next. uld you email me the part about geico making it easy to switch and save hundreds? oh yeah, sure. um. you don't know my name, do you? (laughs nervously) of course i know your name. i just get you mixed up with the other guy. what's his name? what's your name? switch to geico®. you could save 15% or more on car insurance. could you just tell me? i want this to be over. but we're also a cancer fighting, hiv controlling, joint replacing, and depression relieving company. from the day you're born we never stop taking care of you.
a new u.n. report shows we are living in a dangerously warming world and if we don't act now, the damage could soon be irreversible. the report put together by some of the world's top skijoring releasr -- scientists was released at the start of the u.n. general assembly and shows the past five years are on track to be the warmest of any five years on record. sea ice is melting rapidly. greenhouse gases in the atmosphere have reached all-time highs. the u.n. genersecretary-generals the climate emergency the defining challenge of our time and is asking world leaders to bring concrete ideas to the summit. richard roth explains what to expect. >> much of the world comes together for a global summit.
u.n. officials want the emergency of the climate to be the number one issue despite other confrontations now under way. a new devastating u.n. report on climate change serves as a backdrop to all the talking and speeches. the secretary-general wants action, though and has called on world leaders to speak for only three minutes and he wants concrete bold transformative proposals from world leaders. he doesn't want the usual speeches wherein people stand at the rostrum, leaves town and nobody remembers what he or she said. that's easier said than done since donald trump won't appear or the leader of japan or any other high officials from brazil. the u.n. doesn't have a global climate change army and can't punish those not living up to commitments. the u.n. officials it's time to regather momentum and they're
counting on what happened in the streets around the world from the young people, the demonstrations on behalf of thousands of people in dozens of cities. greta thunberg is expected to make remarks. the young people are impatient and say they don't want to be told just to study while the world and the climate deteriorates. the secretary-general believes them, says he's been encouraged by their passions but he's got a lot of work to do and so does the world as that new report says by 2040 things could in be the catastrophic levels. >> cnn's becky anderson heard from a generation determined to have a voice in the fight against climate change. >> this is our darkest hour. the science is clear. we're in a mass extinction
event. >> breaking news. >> hurricane irma continues to -- >> just a hell storm. >> we in alignment with our consciouses and our reasoning declare ourselves in rebellion against our government and the corrupt institutions that threaten our future. we call upon every principal and peaceful citizen to rise with us. >> we refuse to bequeath a dying planet to future generations by failing to act now. >> we act in peace. with ferocious love and act beon half of life. >> this is the call to arms that is inspired thousands worldwide to join extinction rebellions, colorful brand of civil disobedience. in protest against a lack of action on climate change.
their message is clear. act now or future generations will suffer. well, here in south london people of all ages are soaking up the atmosphere at an extinction rebellion festival including those who have the most to lose from climate change. >> what could we do to make our air clean again? >> fossil fuels, we should stop using them now. >> ban all noneco friendly commercial advertising? >> i want a future for me and my brother. he's only 5 and would like him to reach 30 before having to worry about the climate crisis. >> what do you say to those who don't care. >> it's your future. why don't you do something. >> reporter: they're more aware of the risks of climate change than any previous generation. inspired by climate act is greta thunberg these kids are
determined to have a say in their future. >> the children of the people who will be affected, the children of the people who are growing number in this world with all this pollution and cars -- >> as tensions in the climate crisis grow the rise of youth activism looks to continue. >> children know about these things and that they do actually care and it should be everybody listening. >> reporter: despite the gargantuan task ahead of them they hope they will succeed where previous generations have failed. >> i hope that climate change in the future is going to be something that is in a book of myths that the grandparents can tell to their grandchildren about how a group of activists realize the change needed to be taken saved the planet and we need to make our stand and make sure our voice is heard.
>> reporter: becky anderson, cnn, london. all very sobering so let's turn to the weather and the impacts. we've had the warnings. we hear from the children right across the globe how they're feeling about this. but not everyone is listening apparently. what do we all need to know >> that's the biggest concern, right? we see these studies and they highlight what's been happening in recent years but this particular one, rosemary, really highlights the accelerated nature. we know temperatures are rising and sea levels have followed suit and ice loss continues and extreme weather events with tropical systems, the intensity and intensification that we're seeing with dorian, michael, irma, all have rapidly intensified. our planet, the warmest comes in
one through five, 210 015 to 20 and 1.1 degrees warmer than the preindustrial levels. that highlighted fascinating things when it comes to sea level rise. we know that's rising as well. 25-year average is generally 3 millimeters per year on a global scale from 2007 to 2016 that was 4 millimeters, that has gone up to 5 millimeters rise sea level globally every single year. what does it break down to? take your fingernail, the rate they grow every month, how much oceans are rising on a planetary scale every single year and speaks to how noticeable the rise and how accelerated it is and that's the global average. look off the coast of say the korean peninsula, off the coast of the eastern united states, that is 100 to 150 millimeters or the rate your hair grows in a
year is how high the seas have risen. when you look at the extremes off the coast of the u.s. and off the coast of east asia far greater than the fingernail analogy we made an result in deadly heat waves and wildfires in the amazon. a lot are anomalous and see them pick up intensity and frequency. >> despite all the scientific evidence some leaders across the globe still in denial with all of this. pedram, thanks very much. a broke. coming up, a royal visit will put the spotlight on some of south africa's most dangerous townships, back in just a moment. this is his family, the world he's built, for 72 years. ♪ this is hal's heart.

welcome back to cnn newsroom. i'm rosemary church. i want to check the headlines. more than half a million travelers are stranded worldwide after thomas cook declared bankruptcy. all of the british company's flights have been canceled and the uk will launch its ever repatriation to bring home more than 150,000 of thomas cook's british customers. the u.s. president is defending a call with his ukrainian counterpart back in july. donald trump is slamming the whistle-blower who reportedly filed a complaint about it and says he hopes the call is released. a source says mr. trump pressed ukraine to investigate the son of his political rival, democratic presidential candidate joe biden.
well this, is not the first time president trump has been accused of using a foreign leader to try to target political opponents and the latest scandal is fueling calls for impeachment. >> donald trump has made clear that he does not respect the rule of law. congress has one responsibility on this and that is to impeach. >> we need to absolutely right away begin impeachment proceedings. he's got to go. >> there is no way to defend the lack of progress on impeachment especially after what we have just learned about this president, if ever there were a time to impeach and hold the president accountable it is now. >> it is a mistake not to impeach the president. >> depending on what the house finds he could be impeached. the house should investigate him. >> for the most part republicans are standing by the president at least for now but senator mitt romney tweeted this, if the
president asked or pressured ukraine's president to investigate his political rival, either directly or through his personal attorney, it would be troubling in the extreme. critical for the facts to come out. well, israel's president is meeting with political party leaders to see who they recommend lead the country. he has to break the election impasse since neither prime minister benjamin netanyahu or benny gantz had enough to form a coalition. we have more now from jerusalem. >> reporter: it's nearly a week since the elections and israel's political situation is no better now than it was before. the country now seems certain to remain in the same political deadlock that led to these elections in the first place, and on sunday the president there began meeting with the parties to see who they recommended to lead the country. blue and white recommended benny
gantz while likud recommended benjamin netanyahu but the kingmaker, lieberman has only eight seats but those are crucial for whoever wants to form a government and he said nothing. he made no recommendation to the president on who should be the next leader and that means gantz and netanyahu will fall short. one other thing worth noting, the joint list of arab parties made a move recommending gantz. the arab parties normally make no recommendation and the only other time they recommended a leader 1992 when they threw their support behind yitzhak rabin. here they said they would support gantz in order to oust netanyahu. that means the burden of changing this falls right now on president reuven rivlin.
