Morgan Wallen Speaks on Using Racial Slur in 'GMA' Interview

"And a lot of people thought maybe it would be the end of things for the country music star Morgan Wallen. But despite the fact that he was recorded on a doorbell camera, I think or some sort of camera. Saying the N word after a bender. He's out on the street and is like, yo my end or whatever, to some friends around him. It's caught by this camera. It makes it on the news and his burgeoning country music career looks like it's going to get tanked. But he's a big star. His songs took off his some of his music videos have a 25 million plus views on YouTube. He's been touring still career took, Uh Weird turn. I had never heard. I think the three of us agreed that we had never heard of the day before that. No, I still never heard one of his songs. And but I've seen like shortly thereafter that his song like stayed on the top 10. I knew a part of you kind of wonders a little bit like how much of that was to just stick it to everybody else that wanted to cancel them. Four saying the n word on that. But he did. He did get pulled off of all the radio stations for at least a while, I think And what I'm saying all I mean, they're probably some that just did their own thing. But I recall the radio stations kind of banding together and saying we're going to halt playing Morgan Wallen music. And then everybody goes over to iTunes has suffered his songs, Rocket up the charts, and so now he's finally even went to rehab at one point, But now he's finally breaking his silence on this, and he sat down with Michael Strahan. Let's just peek in. Let's see how this went to the people were going to watch this interview and say, the only sitting down because he wants to clean up his image. It's all a performance Mullet, man. What do you say to that? Understand that, you know, I understand it that I'm not ever going to make you know everyone happy I can only come tell my truth, and that's all I know to line

Now and that's due to the body deriving the calcium from the bones instead of from the nutrition. Yep, okay. And so what we have to do is we have to find a way to put calcium back in the diet. Now you think that would be really easy? Sure. Just drink milk. Just drink milk, or, you know, eat a lot of green leafy vegetables necessary thing, But first of all, people don't do that, right. And second of all the quality of the calcium that comes from our diet. Has been decreasing in the last 50 years. Really? Because things like pasteurization who they are irradiated. The the calcium is leeched from the soil, and people are taking medications that block it. So the actual calcium is not being absorbed in.

EU regulator finds link between AstraZeneca vaccine and blood clots

"Today said there's a possible link between AstraZeneca's covert vaccine and rare but sometimes fatal blood clots. The AstraZeneca vaccine has already been administered to tens of millions of people. It's on track to be the most widely used vaccine in the world this year. NPR's Jason Beaubien joins us with more. Hi, Jason. Hi, Ari. What exactly did the European Medicines agency say today? So there had been. Some concerns raised that some people appear to be getting hit with a very rare blood clotting condition. In the days following vaccination and initially, the European drug regulators, they said, this rate of a few dozen blood clots was nothing out of the ordinary when you're vaccinating 25 million people. But today, the E M. A safety committee came out and said yes, there does appear to be a link. Dr. Sabin Strauss was the head of that committee, She says they looked at all the available data on 86 events. These clotting cases that occurred in the days after vaccination by AstraZeneca on we have concluded that there is indeed a possibility. Of a very rare event that might occur. They're still saying they don't completely understand what's happening. But this appears to be an immune reaction that they've seen also with a drug called heparin, which is a blood thinner. But the key point here is that they've switched their position now to saying that they think it is plausible that the AstraZeneca vaccine is what's causing these clots. So these clouds are

Yeah yeah yeah so the the hypocrisy You know the policy stinks. I think none of us would really care. The bernie bro. Narrative wasn't really hurting. I mean bernie ami and we were. We were doing very well until you know. The moderates all dropped out in Brock obama chose to be the next president united states. But in this moment now that near tan is pretending to be You know indifferent to online Shenanigans into say that it's just twitter at it doesn't matter after she was the ringleader of stirring up attack against sanders on the basis of anonymous. Twitter's in double on top of that. The fact that he actually has a relationship with the people who were doing Aggressive besides genetic antisemitic tweets ablest tweets on her behalf or as awfully bernie sanders bernie sanders. Wouldn't wish the The the the head of the new york times happy birthday. But there's this implication that he has his relationship with twitter's mutated is actively saying happy birthday my friend and throwing her arms around these people pictures and she claims that relationship or about it matter. So that's where we are. And and the reason that i mean. I was not as eloquently as of course trying to make this point and i. I didn't get it this far to wrap it up. But the the parallel. Also i think is that is the weaponization of it. It reveals the willingness to just weaponized really Like like take advantage of really terrible things like there is online abuse There's obviously racism and sexism and there's misogynist language and and racist language and then to pretend that you are on the side of the people at the receiving end of that but actually actually elevate people who engage in that that reveals the same kind of disingenuous hypocrisy that is revealed when she invokes her growing up her her life being on section eight housing and then uses that too at the same time push for policies that actually cut those programs. So that's i guess that to me is like what's what's stunning about it. The crecy in itself isn't surprising or interesting. But it's kind of an invitation for people to look at. What is the real motive. What's real motive of invoking your childhood. What's real motive. An in portraying all bernie supporters have sexist racist. And it's really to push policies tip try to kneecap the left by presenting the left as monolithic racist sexist problematic group of people.

Difficult subjects right which doesn't really fly in a political atmosphere when you have tier guys earlier conversation folks like near at out in the world trying to pretend to cast even good things in a bad light so i think our our most popular episode was about the metoo movement and trying to tease out some of the nuances there and why we weren't having a bigger conversation about what accountability and rehabilitation looks like that would enable people to be more honest about the bad acts that were coming out at a rapid pace at the time. So probably something between matt or the episode where we talked about The shape of water and there was a lot of conversation about having sex with fish. Right bernie being like look. I refused to comment on the fish fuelling intercourse that was depicted movie and my press secretary review. Them won't be in. No way represents my campaigns us on that in fact i think it's overrated and it was a little contrived expect more from that director but katie. Kill me no. I can actually hear him saying that unbelievable but can i go and i were talking about When you were there in the in the green room there Brianna near attendant. And i don't want to spend a lot of time on her. Because i think we should be talking about other things.

Yeah every time you went on tv you a trend on twitter before you even appeared opened her mouth end of the promo would say and michael moore coming at eight and immediately negatively trend though negatively negatively trend in the idea that there existed some cohort of bernie brose was of course most hurtful because there did exist in army that was pretty vicious Pretty explicitly racist ironically recall that this is an overlapping cohort with the the donut. The chocolate doughnut crew. So a lot of these people have done emojis in their names. The same way that you know a socialist might have a red rose in their name and the donut is meant to be evocative of a moment where turning turner was disrespected after trying to get her. You know the progressive of viewpoints Heard at a Ut was commissioned. Yeah a meeting so. They basically told her she couldn't enter and then put bottles of water and donuts outside for her and her supporters and she gave impassioned speech. Savings isn't about dotes. I'm not going to be bought off by donuts. I like these are the things that matter substantively to millions of working people etc and a lot of folks decided that they were going to deride that moment which if anything was a roman reveal integrity for senator turner and a real moment of shame for the people who bartered from the conversation and put donut emojis in their their handles to macher..

So I think concern in terms of Directionality, the Biden plan is great and it it recognizes that we need to. We need to fix agriculture. When he defeats our vehicle system, we need to fix our energy system in sets. A target I'd like to bring the target a little bit forward from twenty-fifty in a little more ambition. I think there's always room for more ambition here. But I think what? The? Biden team? Haven't. Really picked up his on the the American public want to be sold on the heroism on the what we have to win. And I think we can still do better on know if we do this right, we can save money. If we do this right, we will leave the world. And so I think the plan is sound but it needs an awful lot more detail I think it could be even better in its communications because I genuinely believe we have the opportunity to. To make the country much much more prosperous while doing this aggressively, I'm so appreciative that you mentioned agricultural emissions and ambition here because now I get to to take my my point of personal privilege and push on the beat question a little bit over the by the the. Call they don't. They don't touch made. Third Rail. But I WANNA talk about it for that reason a bit. So my basic sent my basic understanding of the math here is an agricultural missions are about twenty five percent of total human emissions. The studies have seen suggested switching from meet. The plant based diets would cut about fifty percent of that in America at about sixty five percent of that because we're so meet heavy. One of the things I like about your book is this focus on. Well, what can we do now? What do we have the technology to do and so this idea of going to replace a car, replace it electric if you're going to. Replace a furnace, replace it with a heat pump. If you're going to build a new house replace make sure it has solar on the roof and it's just always weird to me..

"On target with Swanson's Lower Wing Cape. The technology costs going down. It's not the right way to think about this top line figure of how much it's GonNa cost because if we find correctly and we do the technology correctly, we should be saving. One hundred, two, hundred, billion dollars a year on energy. And that's just for. Residential Energy alone. so that's for households. So it's misleading to to begin with this is GonNa cost US twenty, five, trillion. It's more accurate to say this. If we do this right, we can save a few hundred, billion dollars a year for American homes goes a good point to stop for for quick break we will be right back. You have an idea by out the fossil fuel industry. What is that an and why should we do that? Why should we? Why should they get a by up? This may be the most radical thing and it's a giant segue from just we way we just were but let's think about well who who doesn't want this to happen. People who currently a- profiting from the world as it is, and that's the the fossil fuel industry and one of the real challenges for fossil fuel industries they. Actually have monetize their fossil fuel reserves. So those things are conceded assets so A huge amount of their wealth in the wealth it's actually part of the basis of the stock market is they have financed oil and coal natural gas that stealing the grant. They WANNA pull it out of the ground otherwise they're. Their assets go down and so we we need to figure out how to. Get them onside because they're going to go down kicking and screaming if you're just going ride off their assets by saying, you can't dig anymore call tomorrow. I think before we go to, we'RE GOING TO BANKRUPT DOLE fossil fuel companies, which is the you've got to keep it in the ground studying twenty, twenty, two I.

"It is a good term and the thing that people usually mean by that is you gotta take it really seriously seriously the way we would a war, but actually we've had literal wartime economic mobilizations before World War. Two is probably the best known and studied, but which she know a lot about what wars due to economies and I think it's worth saying in this that it looks a lot like this. I mean, you have a lot of people who are employed in the direct conduct of the war soldiers and and other folks in the supply chain. Then you've a lot of people making things for them a certain amount of money I in jobs in financing around it. So what did the economy look like because you talked about the submit in the book in around and then in the aftermath of World War Two because that is another time we spent a ton of money borrowed a ton of money from the future to do something tremendously difficult and big and expensive in the present, and so we actually can look at that in and have some idea of what economy looks like both under those conditions and in the aftermath of those conditions, there was actually a fabulous book. You can find free on the Internet Cold War time production achievements, and the reconversion outlook. Woo that's that's that's a good title I'm our demise you pick it up. It is really a page Turner. And it's a report by the Chairman of the war production board who managed all of the production of all the things that we needed to win World War Two and it was written in nine, forty, five and. Honestly, you can just go through and look at the. There's a small number of pictures in that book that till an amazing story they compare. What did the economy look like? Nine, forty, four compared to nine thirty nine and. So The GNP, the gross national product increased at fifty percent. So it was one hundred and fifty percent of what it was in ninety, forty, four, one, hundred, and fifty percent of whether it was thirty nine. The manufacturing volume of things was two, hundred, ninety percent. The raw materials production went up by seventy percent. New Construction more than doubled because we building so many buildings to house people in manufacturing things the labor force increased twenty percent civilian employment went up twenty percent manufacturing employment went up sixty percent..

"Really do a huge amount necessarily on cumnock side creates a huge number jobs. We didn't count those. You could count those additionally, but we didn't because it wouldn't be the cheapest way to get to the end result, and so there is this conflict inherent in these analyses on, we could spend more and more jobs, but then energy in the future is going to be more expensive. Than the other reason that you need to be a little bit cautious is. We use the loss young twenty or thirty years worth of economic data to create this model of jobs per sector. But if we'RE GONNA change the economy as rapidly drastically as we need with the wartime effort. Going to render that economic history that was reasonable free-market. Capitalism a little bit wonky because this rapid industrialization for for cleaning the economy want look exactly like the last thirty years. So you should also be cautious about whether those numbers will apply we. Assumed for a old the rooftop solar that we were going to install in that jobs report the cost of Solar Australia Abdullah per what installed on your top? And that created a few million jobs for that piece of the jobs picture. If we assumed the cost of solar in America which is about three dollars a what we would have created millions of more jobs. But the energy would have been. More expensive. And so that's one of the the. In in this analysis, we tried to go for balanced of How do we create all of these jobs been make sure at the end of the day? We're getting the energy costs to also be lower than they are today. So. One of the things you say that I think helps put this in some context. Is it an here? I'm quoting simply put clean energy. Require more labor in manufacturing installation and maintenance than fossil fuel technologies. Why is that? You know at the end of the day? It's because they're big machines. When you drill a hole in the ground and Hewlett natural gas oil come out of it. You know megawatts of energy come out of that hole, and that's you know as six inch diameter hall.

"To you. I think you have to all of the on the table and there are certain ways low income segments of the population for whom grants or other methods will will be necessary. But in terms of the amount of money to the government outlays, the low interest federal government backed loan is the cheapest full the government because they're basically using the stability of the American. Currency and the country to guarantee that low interest rate, and that creates a huge amount of liquidity in fact, the largest. Liquidity market ever invented is the US housing market to this day because of the federal guarantee on those mortgages. So it creates huge liquid market without actually the government having to pony up cat up front if you do. Grants, than the government has to find the money upfront.

"Gas furnaces cheap up front 'cause it's basically A. Glorified oversize your Atlanta, but then you have to keep feeding that machine with fuels into the future. But. The Electric Alternative Higher Costs Upfront. But then the energy is very very inexpensive into the future. So we need something like a mortgage payment or we need new financing technologies to enable us to buy those things actually I spent. Kind of amazing weekend with a couple of friends and we built this the the the the ugliest forty page spreadsheet that I've ever built the we basically modeled. The. Average home from historical data in every state in the country how much it would cost to convert the average home. In each state to these decarbonised technologies and it turns out that. Capital cost if we. Assume. The cost. We know that young refused the cost of strand solar we assume the cost of. Batteries that we were pretty confident industry, we hit in twenty, twenty, five, the it'll cost thirty to forty thousand dollars per average American harm. And if we were financing that at some way between zero and four percent interest rates. You would actually say I think the number one, two, three, thousand dollars per household. Per Year into the future so As a rough. Gross picture of what is possible as long as the interest rate ride and we help everyone afford to buy that infrastructure. We can actually save everyone money, but then you probably need mole than that one big blunt instrument not everyone is harm. These things are not going to buy them all at once. You'RE GONNA buy them one at a time. So how do we have financing at every point of purchase that enables these things succeed? and. BECAUSE WE'RE IN A. Recession or depression as in a pandemic, it's interesting to recognize that that thirty know that twenty five year mortgage was an American invention of the Great Depression it was actually Fannie Mae was created in nineteen thirty six of the federal government. Could guarantee low interest rate mortgages to the to the American people. As a stimulus to get people back building houses in investing in their communities and creating jobs. So there's exact historical precedent for a moment like this..

"This transformation, and we would be saving every American household a few thousand dollars a year and I think particularly now. In this economic environment, the promise of all of the jobs created by that program which would be. In the tens of millions and the promise of lower costs sue every American family. Probably is more compelling, argument than. The moral righteousness not burning. Gasoline. Anymore. But just so I understand you. You're not imagining that President Biden will sign into law something saying, no car company can sell an internal combustion engine car in America starting in twenty twenty two. That's not how you see this going. I think that's impractical I think you could maybe say by twenty thirty but the reality is we do not have the production scale. So you would have to spend three to five years very aggressively ramping up industry just so that you could make it possible. To. Not? Sell. Combustion 'cause anymore. So. I don't think that's how it plays up I. Think it will be more by sitting the policies that enable the clean technologies to win. I think placing market sticks. So ever increasing fuel economy standards that really only electric vehicles can hit. New Building codes the weekly only electric heat pumps can hit and then highlighting the health and economic benefit of the clean. Future Alternative I think that's our best chance of getting the job done. I don't think it is politically possible nor technically. Possible to just stand up and say, we'd banned these things by twenty, twenty two that would be enormously..

"So we're basically what you're saying is is. What are the combinations of carrots and sticks us? So the carrots that I think we should be driving towards they're getting the cost of electricity. We will produce his lowest possible and then getting the cost of this changeover financed at the lowest possible interest rate and that should make energy cheaper for everyone. But probably carrots learn don't get you as fast as you want to that hundred percent adoption rate. So then you you need sticks as well. What are the sticks that we could apply here? We could stop subsidizing the fossil fuel industry in a myriad of ways that we currently do. We could put a carbon tax on the fossil fuel industry to make their fuels. More expensive. We could have things the book in other cities around the country are starting to have. Ban Natural Gas on new built. Homes and some of them are working on banning natural gas. So if you major retrofit of your home, you'll also have to remove natural gas. They are other sticks and you're for the best climate outcome we need as many stakes in the big sticks. That we can. And so it's GonNa. You know the the policy is going to be a combination of those carrots in those steaks and I think the thing that's going to motivate the public. The most is the the carrot side of it and the way to get the carrots to be as tasty as possible is to. Quite, honestly, the scale of the transformation because of things like Swanson, slow are GonNa get the cost of what we need to wait I need to be the your every everyone in the country will safely. I've been thinking about this questions Zara the book because it feels like this is actually in a weird way technology at the heart of it you make the argument that we don't technologies, but we'd probably need some very new political technologies in while you focus on financing I, think at the center that is going to be have one structure is this mandate.

"We need to double and then double, and then double again, the rate at which we produce Sola in order to be able to. Get it to where we where we need to into himself scale. And mealy by getting to scale where likely going to take you know another half of the cost out of straight out of solar energy. So we may even be able to get that rooftop solar three or four cents kilowatt hour, and in fact, it utility scale, we're already producing around the world at utility scale. Solar to insecure what our even slightly less. So then you might ask why, why do I pay twenty cents killed off my electric city from Beijing me or whoever your utilities and the answer is the data transmission distribution sector is very expensive. So in fact, I pay about thirteen cents a kilowatt Allah for the connection to the soul of it is being produced to there. So as well as getting the right policies and regulations around. Rooftop Sola, we need to focus on keeping. Or lowering the costs and keeping costs under control transmission distribution. So I think if you're listening so far this all sounds reasonably standard, it'd be good to electrify renewable energy is better. We can make it cheaper overtime like we're kind of. Today here in this conversation, but your timeline. is in your approach is actually pretty aggressive From this moment onward, you argue we cannot make any of US individually or collectively a major infrastructure decision that does not electrify. So talk about that talk about Endgame Lecture Fixation so if you. Follow the climate science. We have a certain budget for the amount of carbon that we can eat. and. As, you can imagine if you have a internal combustion engine car sitting in your driveway, that's only one or two years old. It needs to live for another ten or twelve years because you don't want to retire early. And so the emissions that that new vehicle will commit for the next fifteen years or omit are cold committed emissions and that's true of our Now, basements hold hate is now 'cause it's also true of our natural gas power plants in the coal power plants. And basically the committed emissions from machines that exist on the planet. Today, we'll take his a little bit over one and a half degrees in towards two. So.

"That's about two or three cents per mile, and if you're paying three dollars a gallon for gasoline into an equivalent sized guy, you're paying more like fifteen cents a mile. For the fuel. So you're saving more than ten cents for every. Malaya driving electric vehicle. So there's a little story like that for each of. Each of these things where we could save money for us on everything but we do need to focus very clearly on keeping the cost of the electricity, lower? Now if we look around. There is proof that that can be done. Has Very, successfully run sort of policies and utility regulation that has enabled rooftop solar Australia to cost about six or seven cents per kilowatt hour cheaper than basically any utility in American deliver. So there is a future where the cheapest energy that you can use will be the solar generated on your roof. But for America to get there, we need to follow strives path in the training programs in the right creating the regulatory environment that makes that possible right now unfortunately, in the US, rooftop solar cost something like twenty cents per kilowatt hour and is probably more expensive than what your utility delivers. So we'll we need a national program to. Turn that around and then that could be. A lodge source of cheap electricity, and then if we also focus on the utility electricity sector in keeping their costs in check. Very, likely we can save every.

"America uses about one hundred quads of energy. Today is an abstract ten to. Fifteen British thermal units. It's a lot of them, but just thinking about his percentage. If we electrified everything instead of needing one hundred quads or one hundred percent will need forty to fifty. To do all the things that we do today. So it actually makes the project a lot easier. All the efficiency we really need basically comes from choosing to electrify. WanNa hold on why that is. So we can keep big homes we can keep driving around in cars we can keep eating two hundred, twenty pounds of meat and poultry year, which is the American average, and if we just electrify everything, we will need less than half the energy. We currently use what why is that? What is happening to that other I? Think it is sixty percent of the energy were using now so. Just before we go because I think you're you're trying to caveat already and I hear you're. Doing a push for dietary changes early in the in the compensation. I'm pushing for dietary changes later just noting here that you say we can keep our current lifestyle. Yeah. So that may not be the best thing to do. We could also use more public transportation. We could live in small arms and we could do things are lifestyle changes, but the point is. America has enough resources and enough renewable resources that we could probably keep exactly the same styles meaning lodge homes relatively large caused to the rest of the world. And if we do it all electrically. Will we can do half the energy and we can produce. All of that energy cleanly domestically in America. So America has the. Resources in the option to basically continued live something that looks very similar to the way we did. Only. Electrically with off the energy why is it half? Why does he go down so much? So. When you burn something like coal or natural gas to create `electricity which we do. In big quantities today, you lose in the case of call about two thirds of the energy is lost his hate natural gas about half of the energy is lost..

He has done as part of other labs. The most granular look at how energy is used where it goes in the American economy. Anybody's ever done. I'm soon as more about that. Basically, than anybody he's MacArthur genius. He's founded a bunch of clean energy companies. He just he knows more on a technical level about what it would take decarbonised America and can explain more clearly just about anybody I'd ever met. So have on the show and we talked about what that would look like how you do it, what it would mean. It was a great conversation people I think really got a lot out of it but recently, he's come out with something new called rewiring. And this takes it a step further. This isn't just this question of could we decarbonised America? Could we ve on to renewable energy but it's much more about how and what would that do to the economy and what would it mean for jobs, and so it is a perfect fit a perfect fit in this series we're doing now about re-mobilizing America as you know, the series is about how to remobilize the economy in the aftermath of Cova We are doing this as part of a broader abouts called great rebuild, which is made possible.

How many jobs could we create? Why do we think it would create jobs? What would it look like? Where would those jobs be? How would we spread them out like getting actually technical so we could imagine this It's a big job actually running the math on this as griffith has done it is a big job, but it is also a doable up the problem.
