Scientist seeks old vacation photos from Acadia National Park

"If you've ever taken a fall trip to Acadia national park in Maine a climate scientist wants to see your photos don't worry. She won't judge outdated fashion. She just wants to see the trees behind you Stephanie. Sparrow of the University of Richmond is studying how rising temperatures and changing rain patterns affect the timing of fall foliage and Acadia she and her team have been analyzing satellite photos and scouring old newspapers and reports, and our preliminary research suggests that fall foliage has been occurring one day later a decade on average but she needs more historical data to confirm a trend because we don't have satellites. Eight that are consistent and robust before the year two thousand, we'd love if people would send in photos, the snapshots people submit by email can help establish a longer time line and verify other reports. She says surveys show that many people visit Acadia to see the colorful fall foliage. So knowing how it's timing is changing is important for park management and local tourism. It fall foliage peak particularly is occurring later and later, and later in time you can imagine that'll change some things for the way local businesses plan. So you're all snapshots could help this much love park and nearby communities adapt to climate change.

"I tell my children you know they are. Born here in the US. Tell you are so blessed to live in America. If. So blessed to live in America I did not hear that message communicated once throughout the entire Democrat national, convention everything was about gratitude not anger that they live in the united. States of America. It was about we are thankful that we are citizens of this beautiful gift that we have been given the sacrifices that were made before us, and of course, America has made mistakes and individuals in America have made missteps but how do we? Approach those missteps is with anger and Venom and repudiation of everything that we have been given. Instead, it is an embrace of this horrific journey of our country that the next one hundred years can be even better than what predated us or what preceded us, and again I want to just give a vice president Mike Pence. He was absolutely terrific I think that throughout this talk about Abraham, Lincoln he was calm he was compassionate and you guys can see the political brilliance of the trump team come through here. I just want to give them credit. Every single story every second of programming was basically saying like California New York. You guys are citizens of this country, but this is a political convention it was about winning. Wisconsin it was about winning Minnesota winning Michigan, winning, Ohio, winning Florida, and yes even winning. Maine. Yes. Winning main I love the state of Maine is one of my favorite places in the country if you're watching from the state of Maine right now emails freedom Charlie Kirk Dot Com. The first person who has emails from the of Maine I'm going to send you a signed copy of the Maga-. Doctrine Meena suffered from opioid addiction Maine has been absolutely abused by the political elites. Four years. Main is sometimes one of the most forgotten states in the entire union. Main is has a hardest working people think in the entire. Country because every state has people but some of the hardest working people I've ever been around, they are proud people they love their country. I love spending time in Acadia National Park, one of my favorite places on the entire planet and I, spent time around these lobstermen. And I think that's the correct term right lobstermen Yeah I love that lobster makes me think of Dr Jordan Peterson right sit up straight with your shoulders back everybody increase your serotonin levels actually a better job of doing sometimes. But I, love these lobstermen and actually if you look at the lobster industry, they are they're suffering a lot under opiate addiction and President Donald Trump because he. was tough on border security because he was tough on the flow of drugs coming into our country he's actually improves communities but also he has been talking about deregulating their industry. They love him I think Maine is in play. This is the brilliance of the trump strategy where the the the foolishness of the Democrat national convention strategies like let's let boost our numbers in Malibu and Manhattan like. Good luck with that president trump's like we're going to win main play tape. Maine's lobster men are true environmentalists. We practice conservation every day. If we didn't, we'd be putting ourselves out of business. Four years ago the Obama Biden Administration used the antiquities act to order thousands of square miles of ocean limits commercial fisherman. They did it to cater to environmental activists. Although as lobstermen don't fish there Obama's executive order offended us greatly, it circumvented the fisheries, councils input. President trump reversed that decision reinstating the rules that allow stakeholder input. And he supports a process that seeks in respects fisherman's views. And so that is a middle class. American. That had his life almost destroyed President Donald Trump in the state of Maine Donald Trump won one electoral vote. And President..

Out of Chicago IN-DEPTH!

"Able to the back to another episode of this week in photo. I. Am your host Frederik van Johnson today. I'm sitting down with my friend and fellow Chicagoan Mr Chris Smith Chris and I. Talk about the latest out of Chicago Conference and how that win is pivot virtual all that stuff, and then how how he's planning to move forward in the future amidst this whole sort of sea change in the conference space. Chris. Math. Welcome to the show man how you doing. I'm great. Thank you Frederick great to be here. Thank you very much. Is Good to have you on man I'm excited to chat with you for a lot of reasons, some of which will become clear during this conversation but Yeah, that's a cliffhanger. So. Say to chat with you so. For the folks that may not have heard of out of Chicago the conference, what is out of Chicago give us the quick. Elevator Pitch Origin Story of that conference. Sure. So out of Chicago originally was my blog like I think has been like eleven or twelve years now but eventually, we started doing conferences in Chicago. This would have been the seventh annual get together conference downtown Chicago where was this eighth year I don't know but but that was what we did for a long time and then. You know we've. Seen over the years that coming in person all the way to Chicago because people would come from around the country around the world to it that we found that it's better to go. To the destinations where people want to shoot. So we've started now our conferences are around the country we're going to MOAB and Acadia National Park this year and Death Valley next year. So all sorts of different places and really have gotten a little bit away from doing the downtown out of Chicago Conference. But this year we did it online instead and it was fabulous and basically the response we got from everybody was don't go back to how you did it before this is awesome that we can do it. In our pajamas from home, and then you know just just get to see all the general things because because originally the conference was kind of all different. Genres I mean you've been an instructor in the past and we would have portrait people Lindsay Adler, we would have people you know doing landscape we had kind of everything lots of street photography, and now instead it's like, okay, we're GonNa go to the botanic. Garden. And we're just GONNA do flower and garden photography or we're going to like I said, Acadia National Park and when we're doing. Landscapes in creative nature photography. So so that's kind of how we've changed. But yeah, everything's totally different for everyone now right. So yeah. So everything's really changed the last couple of months. Yeah, and it's sort of it's a I. think that change was coming anyway you and I've had offline conversations sort about the state of the of the photo conference in Education Online Education Industry and how that's converging and The old school conferences are the attendance was going to getting lower and lower, and now after this latest adventure with co vid Can't conferences are getting getting canceled and moving online much like yours did yours was able to pivot a lot easier than some of those bigger conferences in my from my external opinion. And you correct me if I'm wrong largely because you'd already built sort of this next generation conference that wasn't, Hey, come check out these massive array of boats that that people spend gazillions of dollars on. Downstairs go to the education. You're kind of flip that on its head. Can you talk about that a little bit sure. So I mean when we decided to run our first photography conference, we were running it and I had never been to a photography conference before I'm like, I don't know what would you do it a photography conference well, you'd go out and shoot. You'd get to hang out. With the you know all these people that you follow online, it's like a really great networking opportunity and yeah, we'll teach them classes too but it was really different especially like a set like eight years ago most places like you come you watch one lecture then stay in watch another lecturer then watch more and go home or whatever, and then go to the trade show or whatever. So What we built was really based around shooting, and so we did a lot of the street photography and the downtown architecture photography in Chicago but. But by switching it that way, it made it a whole lot easier to go virtual. Well, that's kind of ironic because we're doing the shooting but it we didn't have this huge big infrastructure behind. We're just a very small company. I have a few people to help me run it and they're awesome by the way and. Is. A great team that I have and and we were able to it was unbelievable when this all hit and we didn't cancel another conference. We weren't planning on doing this normal out of Chicago conference. We were going to do something that was just architecture. which we weren't able to do of course but. But instead. We said. We've got all these instructors. We had seventy instructors at the thing I said I've got a list of. All these people we could email them immediately, we can ask, Hey, do you WanNa do this while in the best part of it was that they were all stuck at home and so they're like, yeah, I got nothing better to do. So all these years. Yeah. All were like excited about it and I mean it was really it was really meant as something that we wanted to do. But it was also a benefit foot benefit for our instructors who had to cancel all of their workshops I mean, that's I mean that's their livelihood is going around the world teaching, and so we did this instead to help you know cover some of those costs for them that they that they're

Why Are Scientists Asking Hikers to Stop Stacking Rocks?

"If you've been out on a hiking trail lately you've you've probably noticed them. Suddenly popping up everywhere. Small intentionally stacked piles of rocks. Called Cairns and environmentalists worldwide are increasingly increasingly alarmed because moving rocks can have numerous unintended consequences for insects animals. And even the land itself people have been in stacking rocks since the dawn of time typically four directional or burial purposes such structures have been found in Greenland Northern Canada and Alaska and were built by Anita People's for specific purposes like navigation to indicate a food source or to warn of danger. More recently park officials began creating them on hiking trails else especially potentially confusing pads to help ensure that hikers don't get lost in eighteen ninety six a man named Waldron Bates created a specific civic style of hiking Karen in Acadia National Park. The Bates Cairns as they became known consisted of a rectangular stone balanced top two legs and then topped opt with one stone pointing to the trail. These Cairns were replaced by standard ones in the nineteen fifties and sixties but the park began rebuilding the historic Bates Cairns in the nineteen ninety S. Acadia no contains a mixture of both. What's concerning scientists? Today is the new practice of creating rock piles as an art. Form form or for alluring social media posts because stacking rocks is not an innocuous practice many insects and mammals head under rocks to live reproduce reduce or just escape. They're predators so move a rock and you might destroy a home stack a few. And you may have just exposed the hunted to their hunters. And and while that may sound melodramatic whether you're stacking rocks in the woods on the beach or in the desert your actions could inadvertently knock out an entire colony. Or in the worst case scenario threaten and endangered species some rock stacking fans note that they're being responsible by returning their rocks to the spots where they found them after after creating and then disassembling artwork however the second move rocks you may compromise species habitat in an unrecoverable manner. In addition moving rocks in any fashion contributes to soil erosion as the dirt ones protectively packed under them is now loosened and more prone to washing or blowing away. Why should you come upon? Stacked rocks especially in national parks. Leave him alone. And if you're hiking don't automatically follow where they seemed point. The National Park Service recommends checking with Park officials before setting out on a hike as every park has different rules about kearns. You wouldn't want to remove those intentionally set as navigational AIDS nor would you want to follow those. That may have been randomly. If artistically assembled by visitors in the end let your actions be guided by the important principle principle. Leave no trace.

I guess at her home in In New York she has a farm in upstate. New York and they got a ton of snow up there and so- Martha posted on her instagram. First of all her house her farmhouse look sick. Mediaeval Lord's Castle. Is that right. Martha posted pictures and video on her instagram of herself. Driving this leg snowplow plow and plowing her own driveway now. Martha famously only sleeps four hours a night so she thinks nothing of getting up and plowing but just in case case and she plowed four miles of roads around her farmhouse. Lots of I'm sure. Yeah I'm sure that some of that helped. The neighbors knows what she's doing three. So here's the thing about Martha Stewart She said I plowed for a two and a half hours. And I think I did a great job so you love. Martha's earth is confidence but Martha in the same way that Martha knows asked whether it's putting an ice Cuban glass or frosting a cupcake apparently currently there strategy to snow plowing. Only Martha new. So here's what she said on her instagram. I'm going to read you the caption. I don't like to damage the defined signed crown of my carriage roads nor do I like to disturb the gravel topping so plow leaving an inch or two of snow cover. It looks prettier and I can use the roads for horseback riding as well as cross country skiing which I can't argue with her. I know those sort of roads and that would. Here's what's amazing. She's skilled enough to know what to leave an institute snow and still get rid of the other six inches or whatever so on top of everything. L. She can do. This is perfect. She's an artisanal snow. Why haven't we elected this woman to some kind of public? I know but you know she was speaking the truth. Have you ever been on like a carriage road like at Acadia National Park they have the carriage Trails that the rockefellers originally put in further horse back in route wagon rides nothing about a defined trail. It's it's not a tar ktar or or cement. It's pebbles and it's very elegant. You know it's beautiful. It's very natural. That's what she's talking about that. That is a very specialized needs but for her to be able to get within an inch or two should have to drop that. You know that plowed just us right her vehicle. It's an it's a special adjustable of and of course Martha can calculate exactly. Yeah she's you make fun of her and you laugh. And all Martha's smoking up with snoop but the woman she gets it done the the woman knows how to get more done than anybody else. We should have elected her to something. I know where she lives in In Maine she lives Looking out at cranberry vary island actually near Bar Harbor and she has a boat somewhere just below her property and she calls it. The picnic boat would not the ski boat not the Party Boat. The picnic boat evidently exclusively used to go out to one of the islands and have a picnic. I have to say that if I had to pick a superpower needing four hours of sleep a night would be. That would be great because this is so much fun. After after she finished like articifially plowing her carriage road she headed over to the chicken coop and collected a dozen of those Pale blue eggs that she makes omelettes with or whatever sees amazing. If I only had a sleep four hours a day I would not be doing things like that. I be getting the laundry done which never seems to get done on at my house. I'll be doing things like that. I'd be cleaning up around the house I would have if I could sleep just four hours a day. I would do some of the not not what Martha it does. Because I wouldn't even know how to begin to turn this snow plow machine thing that she's driving on. I wouldn't know where the ignition was but I would. I would do more things with my life like like now my mom my whole life now is I work I clean I drive and then it's tomorrow think of all the other things you could do with your life if you only. We slept four hours a night. Does she really feel good though. I mean after after several days of four hours and nine outfield too. Good because that. Because you don't have that body hamstring. I've read an article about these people that knew very little sleep their brains and body chemistry different. They're into body. Clocks are defend.

Yeah Yeah and he's horrible horrible human being. Obviously I mean he's in America. That is right love outlines. Yeah that's exactly exactly right like when I was in Chicago they have In Chicago several stores that sell Chicago the style just stuff in Chicago t shirts and all of that. One of the biggest sellers has anything to do with capone. Al Capone the AL capone t shanks turn and sayings by Al Capone at Al Capone.

And I and a little motorcycle waiting for him to get away in it worked and apparently there were other other tunnels to the name. We're using transplant. So he's still in that really Secure New York where Jeff Epstein allegedly I think he I think that's where they did.

"Is about a future where humans have ruined earth's environment with trash, they live in space. Captives two screens self-driving chairs liquified food and robots servants. One little robot is left on earth to clean up the mess until he finds love and ends up saving humanity. From itself this summer were bringing back our tech and entertainment series and to kick it off. Here's another listen to an interview we love on the lessons of Wally with great scifi writer, Kim Stanley Robinson, author of New York, twenty one forty which also imagines a world transformed by environmental collapse, as it happens Wally is one of his favorite movies. Well, it wasn't a hard call to make in two thousand eight it was just a social commentary on what was already happening in at the time and two thousand eight and now are not that different socially, and culturally. I guess you could just say, more has happened the Paris accord. There's a worldwide awareness of climate change in environmental collapse. And that was also true in two thousand eight so I would just say that the situation has been exacerbated in a way that Wally is pointing out things aren't as bad as they are in Weli. But we're we're trending in that direction. Both in good ways, and, and the really bad ways. There's also this kind of, there's also the very obvious message about how convenience becomes enslavement the idea of constant entertainment, and feeding and transportation that, that essentially takes away independence and autonomy. I mean is that that's like that is not an uncommon theme in science fiction? And I wonder if it's always been obvious really the humans in that movie, they're essentially like infants adulthood has been taken away, and against that Wally looks like sister. I you know, he's a worker bee. He doesn't. He has a stupid job to, to package trash into giant. Kayce grouper like columns since it's pointless in a way, and he's just being away at it, but then he begins to make all kinds of mature adult decisions falls in love joins a revolution. And overthrows the social order that already exists. The message is super clear, and I think it made people uncomfortable at the time in two thousand eight and I think it's still should make us a little uncomfortable. Did it? Do you think what was the what were the conversations about that? What we're people saying well, conservative commentators was saying, this is some kind of environmentalist scare message. And I, I saw Wally in a movie theater in bar harbor at the edge of Acadia national park. It was middle America on a summer vacation, seeing that movie and theatre where you got to eat pizza while you watch the movie and every movie gets around of applause. Well while he did not get around applause, the audience knew that it was being criticized for its habits. And there were lots of giant soft drinks in the theater as people were watching the movie, and then we were sitting back in recliners because of the. Pizza format of this particular theater. So it's one of the very few sat hairs that I think pokes them needle right in the in the heart of our lifestyle. And what do you think it says about independence and atonomy? I mean, there are some robots like you said, who break the rules to help humanity and of course, some humans to who sort of wake up to this utopia nightmare that they live in. Yep. That's right. I think it's a wake-up call like satires if they're not just going to be like nineteen Eighty-four ending with a boot on your face. They, they have to always end in revolution. In a wake-up of some characters it's funny, I think that it turns out to be a little machine with presumably really simple programming. It's a subversive message because it saying, you know, no matter how constricted your life is or your patterns. Are you can break out of them just by making a first gesture toward saving something? It's a well constructed consciousness raising film, especially given that it's basically a comedy with a kind of BUSTER. Keaton silent real. The first real of Weli is, is beautiful in that there's hardly any dialogue whatsoever. It's all done by visuals. So in movie terms, it's a it's a great success. In other way, that humanity is essentially saved is a is through the actions of a few. I mean, I'm thinking about the, the theater that you described watching this movie and not everybody wakes up not every wants to in fact, most sounds like it seems like don't right? Are we are too comfortable to embrace autonomy and independence? And I, I guess I wonder what the film also says about leadership. Well, I think it's a good message in the leadership can come from anywhere and needs to be mass source from below. And if anybody starts it, it begins to spread so I like it. It's really a revolution from below by ordinary activities. I think Americans do feel cocooned by crowd and people. Go on vacation in order to do something simpler and harder. People go down to the gym to do. Something physical. I mean, all of these are commodified versions of things that you can do for free just by walking out your front door and taking a walk down the street or or planting little garden. If you have land in, if not put it in pots, the urge is there, this is what I'm thinking the urge for more physical bodily life, a more balanced life where you aren't just a consumer, but are also producing something of your own. I think that urges there. So the movie speaks to something really deep inside all of us Saifi author, Kim Stanley Robinson. Big fan of the movie Wally, are there, techy movies, you want us to talk about let us know. We are M P tech at marketplace dot org..

"I I see all the arrows that I made. But it was good enough at the time. You know that sort of set the template for for the future projects. And really what I try to do from the very beginning is say what kind of guidebook would I like to see like as a consumer? What what are the things that? I wanna see in a guidebook to Acadia national park, and the things that I wanted to see I wanted to see photos because photos really helped plan a trip. They really, you know, if you wanna choose which hiking trail, you wanna go on if there are some photos, and if are in color that can give you a much better sense of what the hike looks like than just a written description. I knew I wanted to have a lot of great background information about the geology about the wildlife about the history. You know, these are these are things that I'm fascinated in. This is why love to travel I love to learn. And so many of the guide books that were out there at the time and still to this day really sort of. It's like, you know, here's a list of thirty hotels. Here's a bunch of restaurants. It you know, it was really disordered the basics of the Mississippi's of staying alive. While you travel rather than the joys of learning. And I I wanted to learn so really I just took all these things that I thought I really would like to see in a guidebook, and I put them all together and other people of you know, they agreed. They they bought the book, and they felt the same way in that. It's it's the philosophy. That's still you know is true to my guidebooks to this day. Like, what did it look like in was or if there was a breaking point between? Okay. Getting it out because that's one thing obviously, huge mission to finish a guidebook get something that that is published, but then the second part or maybe even an probably even the more time intensive and and I wouldn't even say the second half because it takes it takes up. More time is the marketing or just getting people to know about it. Because so how what did that look like because that that's a tough thing. I know a lot of people would struggle the first part. But then they might even get to a point where they could publish on. And now all of a sudden, all right? Well, who's gonna find this and how are people going to find it? Because like you said this was pre internet was there, but pre kind of internet marketing and stuff like that. Where do people find your book? Was there a big break that you found or something like that? And I had a website back. Then people were amazed. Oh, you have a website. That's incredible. You know, that's amazing. The internet was there. But it wasn't what it is today. That said there were alternate. You know ways that people got their information. They got their information through newspapers through magazines, you know, and those really moved markets back. Then I mean, the phone book that was huge for businesses. People used to pay tons of money to be in the phone book. You know? So it was the there was marketing there, it was just different than it is today a lot more analog. And you know, what I did? I I was really fortunate because Acadia national park is located on an island off the coast of Maine, which means that all of your customers. Your potential customers are going to end up on an island. There is an enclosed space where they are going to go to and what I did when I got the books. I put him in the back of my truck. I drove around to every store that I could possibly find. Whether it was a gas station or a bookstore, or, you know, convenience store, and I just walked in. Twenty one years old. And I said, hey, I have this book. I'm a local guy you I grew up right nearby. I did this book would you like to carry it? Honestly, I think a lot of people took pity on me they were like odd is this this young guy. You know, like, I don't know of his books..

"And our question comes from Joe Stormer on Twitter. He asks is it true that glacier laid in land like, Greenland or Iceland, actually rises in relation to the ocean. When the climate is warmer, even though sea levels have risen, so basic. I'm gonna feel this one remain, right? Oh, that's cool. So the the answer is simply yes. So any place that you have had ice in the past and the recent past the weight of that ice, if the ice was thick enough is going to actually be so heavy that it can depress. The crust the earth's crust. So if you magin you've just taken like, a really nice warm chocolate cake out of the oven. And it's you haven't frosted at yet. And you take your thumb, and you press into that nice warm sponge cake, then eventually that some print will start to kind of rise in a move back to its original position. Right. So similarly, the earth's crust is kind of bendy in malleable on this large scale, and as the weight of the ice is lifted as the ice itself melts. Then there's a rebound it's called isos static rebound that happens in that place. And so for example, here I live in Maine. I live close to Acadia national park and the tallest mountain is Cadillac mountain in Cadillac is actually getting a little bit higher. Every. A year because even though the ice here has been gone for fifteen thousand years were still rebounding after the weight of that incredibly heavy shape. So when you think about sea-level rise in relationship glaciers and ice age cycles, the story actually can be really complicated. So for example, here in Maine as soon as the ice retreated. We were underwater because of that depression from the glaciers as glaciers melted. This process of rebound started happening in so Cadillac mountain. Poked out of the ocean became a little little tiny island, and then eventually became part of the bigger interconnected island that desert island today. So yes, glacier Laden land can rise in relation to the ocean. Even though the the climate is warmer sea level is rising here in Maine. Now, we're starting to see that sea level is rising faster than that. I sustained rebound. So even though the land is lifting a little bit ocean levels are rising faster than that. So we can't count on that rebound to buffer us against a future rising. C levels. All right. So hopefully, yeah, it was a really big question that made sense. I love earning at about blazers. And so with that like to to end our show, I'd like actually like to book end us with another Mr. Rogers quote because that's the kind of eighties child than I am. And this one I actually came across when when I was in adult, and I love this. When I was a boy, and I would see scary things in the news. My mother would say to me look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping and I take a lot from that quote, both in terms of being able to trust that I don't have to fix all the problems, I can work on the problems that I'm suited to work on all my wonderful colleagues and friends are also helping to end it also it's a nudge to me to remind me to try to be that helper whenever I can. So I'm gonna ask you your homework for next time is to find some way to be a helper. And sure shame your friends into voting but see if. Something else that you can do to kind of push back against that sense of personal despair. And we'd love to hear from you. In terms of what you have found to do to to make a difference in in your communities in your your workplaces in in schools cetera. And we are always looking for sponsors to help out.

"It looks like it's bouncing on this little thing, and the end is up kind of behind it on the beach, but it has this sort of sweeping lawn. That feels very genteel. Very lovely. And it has a really nice small, but very cool kind of pool situation happening, and then you're there for the for the kind of quaint New England vibe and and it kind of has all that one. One of the reasons that you wanna make sure that you stay and spend the night in behavior and then wake up at the crack of dawn. The next day is the first place. The sun hits the US is Acadia national park? So going up. So going up and waking up. I'm talking real early guys grabbing the car that you wrote tripped in and going into the national park driving up to mountain biking want, but you can also just drive up to parking lot. I'm making it there to see the sunrise over all of the continental. Yeah. Us, I think is a really special thing to do, especially if you're making the bucket list trip to already be out there. It's like, what are you doing if you don't do that too? Yeah, and I was surprised by how short distances are between all of these things. It's like lightning fast to get from like the balance rock or the bar harbor in into the park itself. Super fast on those two, two miles or something like that. And then to get to Cadillac mountain, you've got to do that. The park drive loop, but that doesn't take very long. It's like six, I don't. I'm probably I put it in the article. I don't even remember. It's like a few miles. It's not very long, and then you're up at the top of the mountain and it's like the sweeping views that you get from up. There are astonished, it's gorgeous. You can see the entire harbor. You can see the town down there. It's like just mind blowing cute and in, but also majestic in a certain kind of way. The other two things that I would call out about that are the short path. And it runs along the coast like it's very well manicured. Clearly, well thought out. It's about a mile and a half long, and it is the most exquisite view of the harbor and you. It's very nice, elegant genteel little walk along harbor in front of all these places. We'll take you in front of the bar harbor in take in front of the balanced rock, and it'll take you all along the rocky coastline. That's their. That's just sort of perfect. So kudos to the town for putting this thing together, it was very relaxed and a really wonderful example of that. And I think Katya is where you go. And in Acadia, you've got, I was shocked by the sandy beach, which is a sandy beach, not a common thing in Maine, and there were tons of people who were there just for the beach, like a day at the beach, which it was an excellent version of that. And then I think you got thunder whole, you got the cliff echo lake. All of these things are kind of classic. I like the hikes around Cadillac mountain and the top of Cadillac mountain. I thought there's a really cool they'll take you through. There's a hike on the south rim of Cadillac mountain. We'll take you through bunch of different landscapes forest and like very rocky volcanic stuff. That was very cool. And then you gotta finish up with pop overs. Oh my God. Povilas discovery mine and that so good. Like a Yorkshire pudding, but that's the the the American. Yeah. So naturally sweet. So not so good. And there's this place called Jordan pond house, which is close to the Cadillac mountain..

"The roads, everything it's named after presidents, read system. And trees elm maple. But no, it has that same feel because it was it was simply designed newer. In fact, I think if you were to really want to oversimplify the differences between the US and Europe, it's it's age. When you get down to it. Now, the type of houses people live in the cars that stream it all dates back to the fact that Europe simply older and we built our stuff. That's really it. There's a lot more than that, but I think that's a big loss of is a particularly great place if you have or can develop a love for American history because they have quite a lot there. There's a lot of the national parks, for instance, around Boston, are our historical historic places like the recreation of the first. Steel steel mill iron ironworks or the lull mills, which are the wear. The industrial revolution was invented in or stolen from Europe, you know, brought over to to the US and they still have the working mills there or the freedom trail or the, you know, all of those things that that's, that's the thing. Some things I like about Boston are the historic sites. Yeah, that must be because Boston as well as New York was one of the first cities that Yehiel Europe king. Oh, well, it would be the the most important city in the US in that time period was Philadelphia was the largest city. Okay. Boston would have been one of the biggest ports and New York would have been a major city too, but but not as central event. It wasn't. You've been at the time of the revolution. New York was a more important city in Philadelphia was no Philadelphia was no, I don't. I don't think that's because the first capital I mean as soon as the war was over well washing, he was in New York to first capital would be to capital the kind of congress, which is elsia. They couldn't do it because it was occupied with your in Boston. When the American revolution was fought when it started, we had a really good start of the siege in Boston, and there's some great stuff of the CJ Dorchester and how overnight they Washington all these cannons, and then it kind of what didn't go. So well for us, I've got her ass kicked on the the return and and repeatedly. But it was always interesting when I look back in that be the numbers of soldiers and troops involved in the American of really tiny yet when you're looking at like what happened? A few decades later within a Opole Yanic worse. Yeah, they would have fifty thousand people. I know Easter like skirmishes with that where they had the US that will they're more related to anything was happening Europe before that time here where they were fairly small standing armies and then but then for physical beauty, you know, Acadia, national park in Maine, for instance, is just stunning war some of that area to go to. One of the last remaining national parks have to visit. You haven't been there. Oh. Once after mooned. Acadia national park and we just got back there last year. Yeah, I, I have all the easy ones to visit, so it's I got the Hardouin so they will. I, I only know that I'm flying out of here on the third of August and then landing in Boston, and then I got to stop planning. Where'd you go? I don't know even know if I'm going to office out the res to with it. Well, if you're interested in cultural stuff, could have Red Sox game. Yeah, go. Then we park is the oldest baseball stadium in the US and. I haven't been part. I have been defending, but as European, I really don't understand the Bishop co with somebody who could explain I did. I did that. I did that in Toronto, and that was my first baseball game ever. And I saw a home run and it was great. It's easier to explain American football. But I know that the rules in baseball can get really weird mostly, they're not, but there are there are, you know, you don't try to understand the ball three-strikes out unless they've dropped the ball and getting all.

Us I talked to Hugo award winning science fiction writer. Kim Stanley Robinson welcome to the program. Oh my pleasure Molly I know you try to avoid this the. Prescience conversation. But at least in your own work but, this movie, is remarkably prescient in some ways. It came out in two thousand eight which was, just about a year after the first iphone came out and, depicts an eventual state of humanity where people stare at screens all. The time you could argue that ten years later that's remarkably accurate What do you think about that and what else do you see in the film. That. You think could is is becoming true before our eyes well it wasn't a hard call to make in two thousand eight it was, just social commentary on what was already happening at the time and two thousand eight and now are not that different socially and culturally I guess. You could just say more has happened and I think while he was a good intervention because there's good things that's happened in the last ten years as well as the bad parts, of of the consumer society coming more and more, true there's also, the Paris accord there's. A, worldwide awareness. Of, climate change and environmental collapse and that was also true, in two thousand eight so I would. Just say that the situation has been exacerbated in a way that Wally is pointing out things aren't as bad as they are in Wally but we're we're trending in that direction both in good ways and the really bad ways will yeah. There's also this very obvious message about how convenience becomes Enslavement I mean is that that? Is, not an uncommon theme in science fiction and I wonder if. It's always been obvious really the humans in that movie they're essentially like infants adulthood has been taken away and against that Wally looks like Susa. I you know he's a worker bee he doesn't. He has a stupid job to to package trash into giant skyscraper like columns since it's pointless in a way and he's just beavering away at it but then he begins to make all kinds of. Mature adult decisions falls in. Love joins revolution and overthrows the social order that already, exists the message is super clear and I think. It made people uncomfortable at the time in two thousand eight and I think it's still should make a. Little uncomfortable did it do you think what was.

There were lots of giant soft drinks in. The theater as people, were, watching the, movie and then we. Were sitting. Back in recliners because of the pizza format of this particular theater, it's one of the very few satires that I think pokes a needle right in. The in the heart of our lifestyle you know the way that humanity is essentially, saved is is through the actions of a few I. Mean I'm thinking about the, theater that you described watching this movie and not everybody wakes up not everybody. Wants to in fact most sounds like it seems like. Don't right.
