tv Today NBC August 4, 2015 7:00am-10:01am PDT
cold war. no, it is not our imagination, ladies. we are freezing at the office. the new study that shows its outdate said thermostat science from the 1960s that's to blame, and guys feeling the heat today, tuesday, august 4th, 2015. good morning, everyone. welcome to today today. 7:00 a.m. on the west coast on a tuesday, boy, what a wakep call out east. >> a little earlier than normal. storms rolled through here. lots of thunder, lightning, one shot in the big apple. we'll tell you about that in a second. our top story on this tuesday morning is the wildfires raging across the west. crews pushed to the bing of exhaustion, especially in northern california where thousands are battling the
so-called rocky fire. conditions not helping. joe is live with the. good morning to you. >> good morning, matt. this fire has now burned 100 square miles. right now, 13,000 people remain evacuated. every time firefighters begin to slow it down, the flames seem to shift into something unexpected. >> the rocky fire is devouring new territory this morning after leaping over its biggest barrier, highway 20, in multiple spots. >> this is not what firefighters wanted. the flames now burning on the north side of highway 20. >> the flames are unpredictable, whipped up by winds moving in one direction one minute, another direction the next. >> today, i saw three or four different heads from the fire, and each one was kind of leaning a little bit different direction. >> a lot of fire activity. very active burning. >> from a helicopter flying over the scene, you can see miles of charred land, an area at least twice as large as san francisco.
>> a lot of firefighters are expressed they have never seen this in their career. it is burning with great intensity. >> down below, rick sanders is the only one in his neighborhood yet to evacuate. he stayed behind to defend his home of 30 years, which rests just a few blocks from the flames. >> it has been almost this close before. but not this intense and this close. it's a pretty hot fire. probably scariest one i think i have seen. >> his home is among 7,000 structures still at risk. wildfires are burning across the drought-stricken west with more than 20 major fires in california, plus others to the north in washington and oregon. but it's the rocky fire now seven days old that won't be contained burning too close for comfort. >> our team experienced the fire's erratic behavior first-hand yesterday when the
flames jumped over the highway. we were more than a mile away. but suddenly, we heard on the scanner that the fire could be heading toward our direction in just 30 minutes' time. we packed up and evacuated as a precaution. >> joe, thanks very much. we'll ask al about the weather forecast in the area in a little while. >> in the meantime, the severe weather in new hampshire blamed for a second deadly tent collapse in as many days. this time, happened during a crowded circus performance and the two victims were a father and daughter. nbc's ron allen is in lancaster, new hampshire, with more this morning. good morning to you. >> good morning, savannah. that circus big top lies as flat as a pancake on the fairgrounds behind me. hard to imagine how shocking and terrifying it was for the 100 or so spectators. a lot of children and families there who survived the ordeal. investigators have been going through it all over night and will continue today, trying to figure out how a circus became such a disaster.
for the second day in a row, weather turned outdoor fun into tragedy. after a severe storm blew down a circus tent in lancaster, new hampshire, killing two people and injuring more than a dozen others. officials say about 100 people were inside the tent watching the walker brothers circus around 5:30 p.m. when 60-mile-per-hour winds, one-inch hail, and lightning caused the tent to collapse. >> lancaster dispatch. white field. respond mutually to lancaster fairgrounds. circus tent collapse. minimum radio traffic, please. >> police not releasing the names of the deceased, however, the governor confirming they are father and daughter. both spectators here to see the show. at least 15 victims were taken to four area hospitals. the national weather service had issued a severe thunderstorm warning for the area during the time of the collapse. >> we'll be looking at the construction of the tent and how it was set up. these are fairly substantial
structures when they're put up and we haven't had any issues in the past. >> the accident comes just one day after a man died and more than a dozen were injured when high winds caused a tent to collapse during a sudden storm at a festival in the chicago suburbs. here in new hampshire, we're still trying to learn and understand the magnitude of the injuries suffered by the spectators and perhaps performers. we reached out to the operators of the circus, no comment so far on why this might have happened. they cancelled performances for later today. >> ron, thank you. in the meantime, voters were given a taste of what teex pkt in thursday's first republican presidential debate. came during a candidate forum in manchester, new hampshire, last night. but the most talked about contender, donald trump, wasn't there. nbc national correspondent peter alexander has more on that. hi, peter. >> hey, matt. good morning to you. think of this has the end of the political preseason, the 2016
regular season kicks off thursday night. here last night, the first primary state in the national, 14 republican contenders tested out their talking points, trying to nail that job interview, but the main man missing was donald trump. ahead of thursday night's debate, the pregame warm-up. 14 republican candidates sharing a single stage in new hampshire, but donald trump skipped the forum, touting his front-runner status with a press release instead. trump's opponents forming their strategies for the primetime event. will you attack donald trump? >> my goal is to let people know what i think. >> should donald trump have been here? >> i would -- it would have been nice. but you know, i'm sure he had something more important to do. >> the two-hour forum played out like political speed dating. the gop contenders sending their best barbs for president obama and the clintons. >> she lied about benghazi. >> i have been dealing with this crowd for 20 years. i'm fluent in clinton speak.
you want me to translate? when he says, bill says, i didn't have sex with that woman, he did. >> the latest republican turning to a stunt to distinguish himself -- >> texas, we cook bacon a little different lanthy most folks. >> ted cruz cooking bacon on the barrel of a machine gun. >> machine gun bacon. >> and now more red flags for hillary clinton's campaign. the new nbc news/wall street journal poll shows nearly half of americans have a negative view of the former secretary of state. after almost 25 years in the national spotlight, she's trying to reintroduce herself once again with ads focusing on her late mother dorothy, her inspiration. >> i in tthink about my mother dorothy. >> still up in the air whether joe biden will jump into the race. the vp is still undecided. on tap today, a private lunch with the president. no word if 2016 is on the menu.
why did donald trump skip last night's forum? he said because there's no chance he's going to get an endorsement from the union leader, the local newspaper. he said 14 contender was too many for a productive forum to take place. he will be literally center stage thursday night. that, he says, i'm a nice guy. i'm only going to attack if someone hits me first. >> peter alexander, thank you very much. >> let's bring in chuck todd, nbc's political director and moderator of "meet the press." i have the latest bloomberg poll on the republican side. you factor that in with the four most recent polls and you get a clear sense of who's going to be on the stage on thursday night. as you look at it unfold, what jumps out? >> the fact that donald trump's lead continues to grow. he really is consolidating at least sort of the anti-washington support inside the republican party. and it really is just eclipsing everybody. by the way, matt, it does look
like the 11th spot right now is where rick perry, and if you believe fox and they're going to stick to their ten cutoff, he wouldn't make it. everything i hear they don't like the idea of decimal points deciding ten and 11, so it's more likely there will be an 11th podium. >> when you get a front-runner like donald trump in the center of the stage, that makes that person a juicy target. what is the risk/reward for another candidate taking him on directly? >> the risk is if you attack him, he will counterpunch. he said it to me on sunday, that's what he does. he did say he doesn't plan on going on the attack first. i think that that is sort of an interesting decision that some of the candidates make. look, i think some of the ones in low single digits, they're incentivized to go after them because they want the moment, the tv highlight. if you're jeb bush or scott walker and you're playing the long game here, you probably don't want to get into a food fight with him, although my guess is the moderators are
going to try to set that up. that, to me, is going to be the most tense moments of the evening. >> john weaver, a longtime political strategist who works for the kasich campaign tweeted this, imagine a nascar driver mentally preparing for a race knowing one of the drivers will be drunk. that's what prepping for this debate will be like. those are his words, not mine. let's take a look at the latest numb numbers. these are favorability numbers for jeb bush and hillary clinton. what do you want us to see in this? >> i want you to understand something about jeb bush compared to mitt romney. very much similar candidacies. they're the establishment pick. mitt romney was that guy four years ago. already, jeb bush has higher negative ratings at this point in time in the campaign than mitt romney did. mitt romney barely got the republican nomination, when there was this anti-establishment uprising and they went candidate shopping, herman cain, and ended up with santorum.
santorum came a couple days from knocking off michigan. bush is already in a worst position. he may have all the money in the world, but right now, he's in bigger trouble than people think. >> on the hillary clinton, her sid numbers. >> she has lower favorability ratings right now than any point in time did barack obama. you have the two dynasty candidates and they're in a worst position than barack obama was in his eight years and jeb bush already in a worse position than mitt romney was at that time. the two dynasty candidates in an anti-washington atmosphere. they're struggling more than ever before. >> chuck todd, thank you very much. >> we'll turn to tamron in for natalie. a big arrest to tell us about. >> the man suspected of gunning down a memphis police officer is in custody this morning after an extensive manhunt. police say 29-year-old tremaine
wilbourn turned himself in to federal authorities in memphis on monday. he's facing first degree murder charges in saturday's shooting det of officer sean bolton. police say bolton was shot multiple times after coming across a drug deal taking place in a car that was parked illegally. >> an outbreak of legion air's disease has claimed the lives of seven people here in new york city. health officials say they're taking this very seriously. more than 80 people have been diagnosed with the disease which is caused when water contaminated with a certain bacteria is inhaled into the lungs. the bacteria were discovered last week at a bronx hotel and in some hospital equipment. some frightening moments in the netherland monday when two massive construction cranes fell over onto a group of houses. the heavy machines were lifting part of a bridge when they toppled over into nearby residential buildings and a couple businesses. up to 20 people are believed to
be injured in the awful accident. safety officials are investigating that. for the first time this morning, we're hearing the dramatic details from a man who tread water for four hours, more than 40 miles off the coast of new jersey. hoisted to safety in the dead of night, lucky to be alive. after falling overboard, this man had been swimming for four hours, 44 miles off the coast of new jersey. >> the boat went this way and i fell right out. >> freezing cold, without a life jacket. praying for a miracle. >> a big thunderstorm, giant bolts of lightning, and just waves that were huge. >> what started as a fun day of fishing with a friend turned into every sailor's worst nightmare. >> by the time i came out of the water, i saw the boat. and it kept going. >> mayday. mayday. >> the wind was so bad, it was blowing me back or it was blowing the ship away from me. >> nearly drowning, he says he swam about ten miles.
>> i coughed water out of my lungs so many times. and all i would have had to do is take one breath of water and it was over. >> numb from the cold and cramping up, thoughts of his family are what kept him alive. >> i couldn't picture the next day somebody coming to tell them that i'm not going to be home anymore. because i knew it would ruin their lives. >> i almost lost my whole world. i love him more than anything. >> finally reunited with his boat, his friend threw him a lifeline, then this daring coast guard rescue air lifted him to the hospital where he made a full recovery. >> i'm just happy to be here. i really am. >> what a story. and at least five cars were damaged by an unmanned run away garbage truck near pittsburgh. the driver, take a look at this, and another trash collector had stepped about ten feet away from the truck when the brakes became disengaged. you can see the two men chasing
after the truck. thankfully, no injuries, but you know, that is officially a really crumby day at work when that happens to you. >> not as crumby as the folks whose cars got smashed. >> you have to explain to the boss, i didn't put the brake on it. >> how is the weather looking out west? >> unfortunately, there's no relief from this drought, and there's no rain coming. we may see some dry lightning, which could spark some more wildfires. we're worried about that. you can see on the radar, we have showers, thunderstorms back through the plains. but right now, things fairly dry throughout much of southern california, central california, into the pacific northwest where there are red flag warnings up. look at the temperatures, medford, 94 degrees. seattle'saty. los angeles, 84. so it's going to stay fairly warm there. denver looking at a high of 91 degrees. we had excessive heat warnings stretching from palm springs all
the way to phoenix with temperatures well over 100. that stretches all the way, actually, into texas as well. dallas now on its seventh day of 100-plus readings. out west, again, the sunshine continues. they could desperately use that rain. the winds are fairly calm. however, in those wildfires, they basically create their own wind field. wind field. so even though theiroveratibifra wind field. so even though theiroveratibifra ♪ ♪ you're unpacking already? yeah, help me find some mugs. sure.

little rain fallen since january 1st. fres fresno has picked up 32% of the rain so far. san francisco, 22%. that is why these wildfires have been running rampant. as you saw in joe fryer's report, we had the firenados. what happens is nature creates a vacuum. the super heated air rises wildly. these are thin and tall 100 feet in the air and can generate rapidly. the rest of the country, slight risk of strong storms in the plains and more wet weather in florida. nowhere near as badly as they have been seeing over the last in fact, 21 good morning. we're starting out with mostly sunny skies, but we may be

things. you consciously said there is something else there out there for me. and i want to try other things. did you immediately get a good reception and start seeing scripts like this? >> well, i'll tell you, i think it speaks to the power of a decision. i'm not really a hippy dippy kind of guy. i just reached a point in my life 34 years old where i just felt like what i was putting on screen wasn't really reflective of what "was thinking b and i said to myself that things that i liked of my work were things that really reflected how i was feeling. and "forgetting sarah marshal" is how i felt at 24. a breakup feels like everything. and at 34 years old, i'm thinking how i'm going to spend the next 50 years in a way that felt good to me. and that's what this move write is really about. how we want to spend our time and what's going to make us feel satisfied. >> it's an extraordinary role. the writing is beautiful. the delivery between you and jesse is amazing. i mentioned the late david foster wallace. he committed suicide back in
2008 in his mid 40s. he's very concerned throughout the course of this movie how he'll be portrayed in this article in "rolling stone." how do you think he would feel about the way he's portrayed in this movie? >> well, i learned a while ago i don't think it's ever smart to try to guess somebody else's mind. when i try to guess what somebody else is thinking about, they're always thinking about me which is probably not the case. but what i do think is that the movie is a real extension of the themes of his writing of infinite jazz and speech he gave "this is water." it was a speech he gave to the kenyan commencement class. it talks about how we want to spend our time, what we want to think about, what's going to make us feel good when we go to sleep at night. >> can you do a movie like this and get all the attention you're getting and will get f this role and then go back to some of those other roles even if it's how you feel at that time in your life? >> yeah. i don't feel limited by any
genre. but what i want to do is movies that you walk out of the theater and want to have a conversation about. and i also want to do things that make me scared. last time i was here i was talking about my book "nightmares." it occurred to me that i'm telling 10-year-old that's the only way to achieve your dreams is to face your fears. i can't say that to kids and not do it myself. >> that's a good way to look at it. you can make up for the fact that you didn't reveal this to me last time by mentioning me in your oscar speech. somewhere after relative and people like that. >> okay. that sounds like a fair plan. >> jason, fabulous. >> thank you so much. >> congratulations. >> and the end of the tour opens in select markets this weekend. then nationwide on august 14th. up next, two guys looking for the next big thing. we'll meet the west texas investors club. but first on a tuesday morning, this is "today" on nbc.

about it. >> yeah, i guess so. do you like his car commercials? >> oh, god. dang right. did he all them himself. >> really? >> yeah. >> okay. >> we're all real good about rolling stuff. >> you mean making snn. >> no, rolling whatever it is, the boogers they make of him rolling stuff in his hand or whatever. >> i have no idea what you're talking about. should sk should i ask? >> no. >> what is the difference between what you guys do and what happens on wall street or here in new york city and the financial capital of the world? butch? >> you know, it's down home common sense investing. we don't get too technical about it. we just try to find out what the person is really about. and just go on, go at it with a real down to earth, honest answer. >> it's great to you have guys. the show is called "west texas investors club." it premiers on cnbc tonight. rooster? >> you want a sip? >> i don't want the cigar.

>> speaking of floating on top of water, incredible story out of new jersey. >> wait until you see this video a fwie was rescued and had to tread water for four hours, 44 miles off the coast. and he was hoisted to safety in the dead of the night. he apparently wasn't wearing a life jacket when he was on his boat. here's what damian and his wife, robin said about his four-hour ordeal in the water. >> the wind was so bad, it was blowing me back. i coughed water out of my lungs so many times and all i had to do was take one breath of water and it was over. i just couldn't picture the next day somebody coming to tell them that i'm not going to be home anymore because i knew it would ruin their lives and i love them
too much for that. >> i almost lost my whole world. i love him more than anything. >> you saw in that video, the coast guard air lifted him to the hospital and he made a full recovery. he falls off the boat, his friend is still in the boat, doesn't know how tooperate it, can't go get him. a boat spots him, they finally get around the pick him up and through really difficult thunderstorms, and tough conditions, the coast guard plucks him out of there. >> he was talking about lightning and wavess all around him. >> that was the hardest part of my swim training and to tread are for that amount of time. and he said without thinking about his family, he would not have survived. that was the light at the end of the tunnel. amazing.

rate of a man -- >> back then, there were a lot of men working in the office. >> absolutely. depending on the sector, there's obviously still more men insecters. but the temperature around 71 degrees and women feel more comfortable around 77 degrees. you're a memeteorologist, that' big difference. >> i don't think you need to be a meteorologist to figure that out. >> but six degrees. >> six degrees of kevin bacon. >> so, they haven't reset -- >> right, so it question is do you think -- like, today, every office building, should they reevaluate based on this study and bring it up to 75?
>> for every degree above 78, you're saving 2% energy. there's an economic and a climate cost to this. which, of course, is a good thing to do. >> and we want our planet to be great for years to come, so let's crank it up. >> in hot places, it's always over air conditioned. you go into a store or restaurant, it's freezing cold. i'm for air conditioning, but there's a point where it's ridiculous. >> and bejing, who will host the 2022 winter olympics, one of the songs china used in the bid, causing a little controversy. it's called the snow and ice dance. listen to the song "the snow and ice dance." okay. >> it sounds like a frozen song. let it go. let it go. >> this is "snow and ice."
