"academy sciences" Discussed on Can He Do That?

"Or other conservative politicians? The trump administration is similar in many ways to the George W Bush administration. The George W Bush administration was also very aggressive in trying to control scientists trying to stack scientific. Panels with individuals who they thought held agendas that were similar to their own in other words, not drawing on the best scientific experts but trying on scientific experts who had shown an interest in being pro business or in George W Bush's case folks who were more socially conservative. So this is something that has certainly happened in the past, but I think that it is happening to a greater degree under the trump administration. And Philip notes, it's what is fueled. The previous partisan divides over climate science Republicans for the better part of a decade now has been as a party resistant to some of the science behind climate change in part because. So many of the industries that are responsible for some of the pollution turned to Republicans for their help in legislation and regulations in. In making it easier for them to do their energy and natural gas type work, and so the sort of anti climate science attitude has been pervasive in the Republican Party before trump but it seems to have been exacerbated during the trump presidency in part because the president has been so explicit about what he believes or or rather what he does not believe. Democrats by contrast have historically accepted climate change as a significant threat that's often meant regulations on industries and businesses which Republicans argue harms the economy and American workers. Despite trump's attitude towards science today, this administration is facing a real need for science and scientists specifically when it comes to developing a covid nineteen vaccine at unprecedented speed. The president continues to tout progress towards vaccine seemingly hanging some of his reelection bid on his ability to deliver one quickly. So has that scientific need tempered the administration's approach to D- staffing scientific organizations now that they need more scientists, are they reversing course? So to some extent. Yes. As the pandemic worsen, the trump administration has tried to play some catch up with respect to the status of science and his administration after an early period of ignoring scientists pleased to take over hundred seriously trump began whole public briefings on the topic reference that sometimes included public health experts like Dr Burks and Dr Fat Shape. And more important the trump administration launched the multibillion dollar operation warp speed, which is a public private partnership focused primarily on creating manufacturing and distributing covid vaccine by January twenty, twenty one trump even began to occasionally complement scientists in his public remarks, for example, one event said. Something like we have the best scientists in the world racing to develop a safe seen that will end this pandemic, and so this seems very different from the trump. I've described US where in this conversation given the public health disaster through trump has maybe realized how crucial scientists can be and is giving them a bit more credit. The said his interest in science at the moment is probably driven more by his. Reelection goals than improving public health. We've noticed that trump's praise for scientists turns to criticism if they expressed doubt that safe axiom can be made by the year's end and trump has pressured not only is FDA, but also drug companies CEOS to have vaccine available on a potentially unsafe timeline. So in the end that argue that this is not precise behavior, but rather further evidence of trump's constant Tennessee to politicize science. In other words to use it. Or to dismiss it when it suits his political purposes. Trump has embraced scientists in his support for a vaccine, but he's also repeatedly offered highly unlikely vaccine timelines and put pressure on federal regulators and pharmaceutical executives. Trump has touted unproven drugs and suggested questionable ways to treat covid nineteen and political appointees in the trump administration have even tried to change delay and prevent the release of CDC reports because they were viewed as undermining president trump's message that pandemic is under control I. Ask Liz, whether we've seen any areas where the trump administration has been good for Science So, we do see some advances the National Institutes of health their budget has actually increased. Thanks to Congress during the trump administration I know that there are certain efforts underway in some cases outside governments. That's kind of a backlash effect to the trump administration. So there's actually an effort going on between the National Academy Sciences and the National Science Foundation called Sean. So that stands for societal experts action network, and that is a really innovative new group that came about during the covert era that is basically trying to broker information between policymakers including policy makers at the state level and outside experts I think where we see Some advances actually is almost a backlash effect of experts who are so concerned about what's going on and are taken some initiatives sometimes within government often without and to hopefully those effects will yield benefits now and in the future. But at the end of the day, we really need to work on rebuilding the scientific capacity of our government. I think on the whole the trump administration has really hampered science within government, and that's not just my view over half of the members of the National Academy of Sciences have signed onto a letter that rebukes Donald Trump's denigration quote unquote denigration of scientific expertise. So there are lot of. Experts more broadly who think that he has unbalance. Really reduce the government scientific capacity. So where does this reduced government scientific capacity and an absence of shared reality about global pandemic? Where do all of these pieces leave the American People Philip says, it's contributing to the country's overall sense of polarization. The pandemic is interesting right? Because it's not a political issue necessarily and it's not something where there's like A. Red Side and a blue side to it. It's a virus that affects every American and all of our communities and it doesn't distinguish between Republicans, and Democrats in there's not sort of an ideological component here and yet trump has made it a partisan issue because of his rejection of the science and rejection of the expertise within the government, and you know that has put sort of a partisan political. Polarizing Lens on an issue that otherwise should be something that that all Americans have the same vantage point on and you have a sense of whether this is what trump voters want to see in a potential second term from the president, a continuation of this rejection specifically, climate science and this doubt cast on public health expertise is that what trump voters would expect or want in his second term? I think trump voters care about other issues much more for his second term they're motivated by his economic record and look he says and promises he will do for communities around the country in terms of jobs they're more motivated by this sort of general ethos of fighting against the machine against the establishment against the swamp in Washington, they're more motivated by what he has said about trying to. Restore a kind of nineteen fifties style, America, the climate science, and the pandemic scientists certainly part of.

"Lecture had been scheduled for me, but some professors at this university decided to protest to the president of the university. They cancel the lecture. So the professors who invited me went to the local branch of the Russian Academy of sciences and the director of of the Russian Academy of science branch that city said well, if they won't let Michael cream. Oh, speak at the university. He could speak here. So they had buses bring students and professors from the university to the Russian Academy. Science building, and the professors who invited me said more people came than would have come. If the lecture had been held at university because everybody wants to know what is this man going to say that so dangerous that his? Sure was cancelled and he was forbidden to speak at the university. So, yeah, if if I did get forbid from time to time, I I'd have to change the name of my topic tragedy about the Notre Dame cathedral today. How god. Yeah. Absolutely. I've I've been there a few times, and is is just goes to show you because sometimes people ask about, well, what would happen to the remains of our civilization.

"And your memory comes back, your memory becomes younger. Again, he alcohol with ally restores usefulness to your brain to an older bring. I started taking it about my mid fifties. When I started taking ubiquonol the ubiquonol keeps my heart young the alcohol with LA keeps my brain you. I like that. And it starts to work. It's very effective, and it starts to work very quickly. It starts to work very quickly. I found this older study when I was going through my notes. On Wednesday night starting to prepare for this program. From the annals of the New York academy sciences. It's a review of Al car and for physical and mental health and aging adults turning back the clock by restoring metabolism. Okay. As here's what they said. By the year two thousand and four there were already twenty one human clinical trials showing Alker improves memory and elderly people by two thousand and four. That's fifteen years ago fifteen years ago. There was already Twenty-one human clinical trial showing that Al Qar improve memory and the elderly or protected their brain health. There were already many reports that was good for nerve New York academy of science. Okay. So this is the university of Washington University of Washington, I believe is in Saint Louis. But also, Oregon Health and science university day performed a one year study and patients with Alzheimer's disease. They supplement the DEM would fish oils, and a LA they supplemented them would fish oils and at slowed functional decline at slowed cognitive decline. It's an journal of Alzheimer's disease. So let me tell you. When people have Alzheimer's. Have functional decline very rapidly. They forget the brush their teeth have trouble feeding themselves. They may have trouble dressing and the loss of memory happens out of very rapid pace over a year. A one year study just giving fish oils in LA, that's the amount of ALAN three tablets of alcohol with Alli slowed the loss of memory. So here's another one. This is department. The department of medical rehabilitation geriatrics and Hanover, Germany day, tested, the effects of a LA and Alzheimer's disease patients, they gave him six hundred milligrams a day. And their first day two studies, they gave patients with Alzheimer's disease. Did you ever getting to standard treatment they were getting into standard? Rush rows hummers. They added six hundred milligrams of ALANNA. Over a one-year to study at lead to a stabilization of cognitive function. And other words. They're testing their neuro psychological testing. Wasn't deteriorating. It would only deteriorate very rapidly over a year. So in a new study, they gave a LA to forty eight months. Okay. And a new study they gave people with early stage Alzheimer's a LA for four years a greatly slowed down the loss of memory. It's an journal neurotransmitter. Okay. Let's go to a break. Jerry Hickey invite health. We're talking about alcohol with LA for your memory, my memory, as far as people would Alzheimer's that's really up to the enroll just treat them..

"It's going to be cheaper. It's become more efficient technology is overcoming the traditional mining and transport and refining operations. Well, I think part of the reason that infrastructure might get pushed forward is that companies want it, which is part of it. Right. Given. This is the loop. Right. So this is part of companies recognizing that resiliency in the market is about being carbon smart, if it's because it's cheaper that might be why that's kind of what this is talking about. So it's kind of circling around the same point here. And that is this article, we are this article is saying that it will be the smart business decision of the future to be more carbon-neutral period. I'm not saying that I'm saying that the only choice in the future will be carbon smart, and it will not be up to those who are using the energy at all. They'll just I mean that tomato will still come from Mexico, and it'll still be cheaper. But it will be on the come in here on a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle, and that's the only difference and to the actual end price of that tomato. It will still be the difference than it is now. Then you have to move on. But I would argue. Mexico could become the SUV our economic hide and America could be doing all the labor for Mexico. What you'd be an end? We were like we build a wall that we can get over there and get the good jobs like this could happen to but. Just I think there's a there's a there's a there's a hump to get over on all of these things where the for a split amount of time for whatever it is. It will cost slightly more to do the greener thing for whoever it is. That's that was yesterday. I don't think we're not for all things. We're not yet. It's coming, but that's still a fiscal decision that somebody somebody has to make volumes. It's cheaper regardless. I don't think it because. It can't be it won't immediately. There's always a hump where you're changing infrastructure where things are more expensive. Well, okay. So so to that point, you're right. And to that point I think if you're an established large international trucking company, you may not make that jump just yet. So there is a mechanism of reinvents Harmon intensive company, but I don't think that I think it's a dollar intensive company. And I think it's the dollar that drives it, and it's not going to have. I mean, you will have companies come out and tell you, hey, for the love of carbon reduction, we did this completely transformative thing where we have all electric big rigs from tesla. Okay. We do this for the carbon footprint that sounds great to the public. But they also realize we don't have to do oil changes. We don't have articles about. Marvan's as everything to do dollars. And that I'm saying that's going to that's going to be the thing that does is cheaper better more fish, whether you believe it or not you're saying the same thing that the article said, okay moving on mechanism Yeston. What did you bring? Oh, it's. I have. This is I should have been ready for this transition better. Because now the awkward. Joe Joe monkeys life for me. DNA of an extinct monkey called zero three six as been sequenced revealing that it was most closely related to South America's team monkeys. But this monkey this. This zero three is no ordinary DT monkey first of all it was not found in South America. But it is rare primate of the Caribbean. This the Yoho go stuff in the beginning. Destroy thought to have taken to the seas in search of adventure eleven million years ago, or maybe washed out to sea doing some sort of terrible storm remain such monkeys onto floating vegetation long enough to land in Jamaica. Then the interesting morphological auditees. This. I'm like any other monkey in the world zero three was a slow moving tweed tree dweller relatively few teeth. It had leg bones that made it look closer to rodents leg boats. Unusual parents made it difficult for scientists to work out where it came from what it was related to how it might have evolved. Plus it's extinct, so they have or some bones. They found in a cave in Jamaica. So research published recently in the proceedings National Academy sciences carried out by experts from international conservation charity. That's these logical society of London and London's natural history museum as well. As the American Museum of natural history in New York pretty much everybody..

"Appreciate it. Aspect? What was supposed to the reports that came out during the week that went viral was about climate change. And you might think climate change is reports on it coming out all the time, but this one specifically how to do with. How would affect the price of beer? So that made everybody's ears perk up, and they got very concerned right away because of global warming. It's going to hurt barley crops likely. Doubling the price of beer in the coming decades in Ireland. I think they might be the worst hit it's going to triple the price of beer, the it will affect Ireland and European countries. The most the US will not escape unscathed will see higher prices, and they say that people could even be drinking less beer because of all this stuff. So for more on the study, we turn to Denver Gano. He's a science reporter with BuzzFeed news, and we started by talking about what is in this new report. Well, this is really like a one in a series of reports trying to look at how climate change is going to hurt food. Production. I said I looked at a lot of grains, and they're finally getting the barley and the guys doing it said what am barley and beer. They kind of go together. So let's add an economic model for beer into this thing and see what happens with climate change. And the results are interesting in that what they decided looking at the analysis was that the extreme years 'cause don't happen every year under climate change are the ones that really make a difference. In terms of the price of beer or not much is going to be around the ears where you have extreme droughts and heat waves knocking out these sort of continental size areas at the same time where most of the barley is produced in the world. And they said they wanted to use barley specifically because it would show people kind of the real world effects of climate change because everybody drinks beer, where a lot of people drink beer. It would give them something more concrete to hold onto climate change. A lot of people that it doesn't affect me. Right. I don't care or something like that. But if you mess with their beer, then, you know, they're more likely to kind of believe it or want to make some change because of it, right? It's an international team from Chinese Academy sciences, then universities, and then UK and in the US. University. How -fornia and. Yeah, my sense is that they are. In fact, people who do like a beer we're wondering about this question. They said also that consumption could drop in some countries because the price would be getting to hide some of this barley is the same barley that we feed to livestock. They would have to use that barley for the livestock and not so much for beer production. So they're saying that a consumption would also go down as a result of this. It's kind of complicated economic model. But essentially what they're arguing is that Cadillac expensive. And so the farmers are going to feed the barley to the cattles to they'll lose them. And so there's going to be less barley to sell and the price where he's going to go up. And as a result, the price of beer goes up. And when the price goes up for something and the supply goes down people drink less of it in that sense. It's not too complicated. You know, I did talk to climate scientists said, yeah, sure. Of course, it will go up in those years must be the same thing for any other commodity the work. They did this coupling the climate model to the economic model for barley to the beer model sorta with new here with this. You're listening to the daily dive weekend addition, we'll be back with more with Denver Gano about how climate change is. Affecting beer.
