Are North and South Korea heading toward a
historic peace agreement, or is another trap

being set by the communist
country? That`s what analysts around the world
are trying to figure out and that`s what we`re

explaining first today on CNN 10. I`m Carl

The two Asian countries have wrapped up historic
talks this week in the North Korean capital

of Pyongyang. And South Korean officials who

there say that the North plans to hold off
on weapons test for the time being and that

it wants to talk to the United States, a South
Korean ally,

about normalizing relations and the issue
of eliminating North Korea`s nuclear weapons.

They`re considered illegal by the international
community, including the U.S.
American President Donald Trump says he believes
and hopes the North is sincere in its moves

toward peace with the South. He also says
that the

new sanctions, the penalties put on North
Korea by the U.S. helped pressure North Korea

to change its tone. But America says its wants
the North to

take concrete steps toward getting rid of
its nuclear weapons before the U.S. gets involved

in direct talks. And keep in mind that just
months ago,

President Trump and North Korean leader Kim
Jong-un were openly threatening each other.

Some international analysts say they`re skeptical
that the North really wants peace. North Korea

has agreed to give up its nuclear program

in 1994 and in 2005, and then it cheated on
those agreements. Critics say the North is

only trying to get relief from penalties without
giving up its

weapons programs.
One thing everyone will be watching is the
military exercises between the U.S. and South

Korea that resume later this month. In the
past, they

deeply angered North Korea.
I visit North Korea almost every day, except

for --
ROBERSON: That`s a little crazy.
BALDWIN: Say that again, you visit North Korea

ROBERSON: Almost every day.
BALDWIN: Almost every day.
ROBERSON: Yes, ma`am.
Do you guys hear me now?
So, right now, we`re heading over to checkpoint
three, the same rules do apply, do not take

any --
BALDWIN: How do you explain to Americans back
in the states what you do day to day?

ROBERSON: I provide security for people that
would like to come toward the DMZ.

All right. Ladies and gentlemen, my name is
Private First Class Roberson. I will be your

security escort on your trip North today.
Before we get

started, I`m going to ask you guys a couple
questions. Is anybody currently under the

influence of drugs or alcohol at this time?

And does anyone feel like defecting toward
North Korea today? No? OK, cool.

BALDWIN: Where do you live? Where are we?
ROBERSON: The JSA`s on Joints Security Area.
So right now, I`m only about two kilometers

away from North Korea. I can hear propaganda
music that

they play almost every night.
All right, can everyone hear me? All right,
ladies and gentlemen, welcome to conference

row. This is the official meeting place between
North Korea

and South Korea or the UNC and the KPA. All
the blue buildings you see belong to the United

Nations Command or UNC. While the silver or

buildings belong to the KPA or North Korea.
All right, you guys to follow me, please.
BALDWIN: This is when you get to walk over
the line into North Korea.

ROBERSON: Three microphones that you see on
the table, they`re recorded and monitored

24 hours a day. And they serve as an official

demarcation line inside of these building.
So, those of you standing on my left are now

standing in communist North Korea. While the
rest of you on

my right are still relatively safe with me
in the Republic of Korea.

BALDWIN: What does it feel to be standing
in North Korea are you guys?

BALDWIN: Feels the same.
BALDWIN: Do you feel like the tensions have
increased between the sides?

ROBERSON: We always maintain a readiness here.
So, it doesn`t really feel any different when

tensions do rise or when they fall. We`re
always ready

in case something were to happen.
BALDWIN: What`s your message to Americans
back home who are worried about Americans

like you so close to North Korea?
ROBERSON: I would say to just pray for on
us, really. Just pray for the best that no

altercation will happen, and hopefully, that
something good

will come out of this.
AZUZ: As produced this show last night, the
second Nor`easter in less than a week was

bearing down on the U.S. Northeast, and more
than 100,000 still

had no electricity. They lost it when the
other storm hit last weekend.

Intense snowfall was expected in New England.
Meteorologists predicted coastal flooding

across several states and there were winter
storm warnings

and watches in effect for more than 50 million
people from Maryland to Maine.

The wind gusts that nor`easters typically
bring were forecast to be between 30 and 50

miles per hour. That`s not as powerful as
the 90-mile-per-hour

gusts that hit last weekend. But any sort
of high winds could make it harder for electrical

crews to restore power.
Schools were closed in the region and thousands
of flights were cancelled as the storm moved

in and several places were under states of

meaning aide and rescue workers were standing
by and to respond quickly where help is needed.

AZUZ (voice-over): Ten-second trivia:
Bakelite, which was invented in 1907, is a
type of what?

Oven, plastic, clay or bread?
Bakelite is an early form of plastic, a synthetic
resin that was used to make everything from

cabinets to telephones.
AZUZ: Scientists estimate that almost every
piece of plastic made since Bakelite in 1907

still exists in some form or other. They believe
it takes

hundreds of years to break down in the environment.
And from streets and landfills to storm drains,

streams and then rivers, a great deal of plastic
finds its way into the ocean where it can
float around indefinitely.

One of the people working on a solution is
one of tomorrow`s heroes.

8 percent of plastic packaging is being recycled.

A majority of it is being land-filled and
a lot of it

goes into the oceans.
Frankly, our world hasn`t been moving forward
in innovating plastic recycling for the past

My name is Miranda Wang. I`m 23 years old.
I`m an entrepreneur and innovator and I`m

the cofounder of Bio Selection.
I`ve been working on developing innovations
to solve the plastic problem ever since I

was 17 years old. My high school best friend
and I took a

field trip to a waste transfer station in
Vancouver, Canada, and we were just astounded

by how much plastic packaging goes to landfill.
We actually don`t know how long it takes for
plastics to break down. There are numbers

around the world saying it takes longer than
a thousand five

hundred years.
About half of the peninsula in the summer
(INAUDIBLE), every day, 11 metric tons of

this material is being recovered at a partner
facility. That`s

about the same weight as the three to four
commercial trucks. So, imagine how much film

it takes to make up that weight considering
each plastic bag

only weighs about three to five grams.
What we have developed is an innovative process
and this process can be used at large scale,

so process tons and tons of material around
the world

every day. We`re using catalysts that can
break down plastics by basically unlocking

a mechanism that allows the plastic to have
a chain reaction with

We are taking dirty plastics. Right now, we`re
focusing on films that are not recyclable.

We turn into chemicals that are essential
precursors for

products such as nylon, nylon yarn, also nylon
resin that can be used to make products in

the automotive and apparel industries.
Right now, we`re able to achieve those 70
percent conversion from plastic waste material

to these chemicals.
My dream is we will see that something that`s,
you know, sad piece of plastic that right

now would go into the oceans or landfill.
It could be

used to make a brand new Patagonia jacket
or a brand new pair of running shows.

When it comes to solving these massive world
problems that we have, many of the answers

are embedded in technology. There`s so much
creativity out

there, so much knowledge in our world. I believe
we were able to solve all of them if we try.

AZUZ: Almost 132 years after it was thrown
into the sea, a message in the bottle was

recently found in Western Australia. It came
from a German ship

that was sailing from the U.K. to what`s now
Indonesia, and it`s one of thousands of bottles

thrown overboard in a German experiment to

global ocean currents.
So while it`s not as desperate as an SOS or
as romantic as the cry of lost love, it did

set a record for oldest known message in a

So, that caps off another show. We`re glass
you could join us. We love to keep you current

on the ocean of world events and we hope you`ll
sand for

us again tomorrow when we`ll bring you a tide
of news stories and, of course, vintage puns

because the last thing we want to do is keep
those all

bottled up. I`m Carl Azuz for CNN 10.
