"Are you? I'm doing great Ryan. Good morning. We're doing pretty good here except for the fact that hurricane season begins tomorrow in here in Florida. We're a little tapped out when it comes to hurricanes. What's the deal that you're hearing? What a weather experts saying about this upcoming season. Well, you can imagine, and you can understand why they are generally vague as to what to expect touring the season. They say it should be pretty much a normal year which means nine to fifteen named storms, four to eight hurricanes four major hurricanes, which is almost exactly what we had last year. Fifteen named storms in two thousand eighteen eight hurricanes in two majors. But those majors were really hard hitters Florence and Michael were really contained maybe thirty three billion dollars in damage one hundred tallies. So it really was a bad year last year for hurricanes now. What they look at this year what they can determine is two things number one. They look at sea surface. Temperatures surface of the ocean and. Look at whether or not there is a Neo in place, as for those ocean temperatures, they are warmer than average which favors hurricane development in the Atlantic. But there is also an El Nino in place, which hinders development. So for this reason this is something that they'll be updating all season long. How strong he's the L Nino going to be will it be able to create enough wind here to take apart hurricanes as trying to form in the Atlantic? That's what they're looking at. But it looks like we're headed for another season of watching out, you know what's coming in our direction. So this'll be something that FEMA as well as watching, and it's interesting that FEMA is one of those departments, Orion, that has an acting administrator rock long resigned earlier this year. Peter gainer is the new acting administrator and he says that they are about as prepared as they can be. In fact, he said that a lot of the major problems that people have are because they were not prepared individually. It NBC. He's recommending three things preparation and evacuation plan. What are you going to do in case? There is some type of devastating storm number to stockpile food and water. They recommend two weeks to have that ready to go just in case and something that even those of us up here in the mid Atlantic. And now Boyle the midwest and everything he says flood insurance is something everybody should have even though you may not be in a flood prone area. They're finding out in the mid west right now areas that have never been outed before are now suffering. So he's recommending that as well. You brought up last year's big storms has there been any signs that from FEMA that last year storms and, you know, we know in the panhandle. They're still dealing with the effects of hurricane. Michael, how that could impact their preparations FEMA preparations for this upcoming season. What they're trying to do this year is trying to expand what they call their fit teams.

Global Aviation Regulators Meet To Consider Timetable For Boeing's 737 Max
"Big day today for Boeing in the seven three seven max, the FAA's hosting foreign regulators, and one of the things they're supposed to talk about is how to get the max back in there, which is now been grounded for for two months. Affectively and somewhat. Surprisingly, Mr. L, will the acting administrator yesterday just before this meeting really throughout big questions about the time line. I think. A lot of us were expecting this meeting to lead to a, a path, a time line for when the max will likely be in the air, but he basically signaled there's a lot of uncertainty about this and would not be pinned down at all. When max might be flying again and asked about flying in October. He said that may not even be realistic. And I think that's, that's quite surprising, perhaps, somewhat shocking.

"A Bloomberg business flash. Thank you, Charlie. We are live from the Bloomberg interactive brokers studio several hours yesterday senators FRA top US officials on the Federal Aviation administration's oversight of bowling and the controversial safety system linked to two crashes in five months of the company's top-selling 737 max jetliner some said, what's at stake is nothing short of restoring public confidence in aviation for more on this. We're joined by Sean Courtney, Bloomberg government transportation reporter on the line with us. Thank you very much for joining us. And so where did that hearing end up? Well, it ended up with a lot of Republicans feeling like they had gotten answer questions and feeling that the agency was doing what to do with Democrats thinking about the AD did additional oversight, and maybe some new legislation acquiring more stringent certification processes. So it was an interesting outcome. I think that it looks like there might be some supportable odds at stake in the future on this issue. Well, has there been I guess that you can't call you can't talk about damage control here because there was a lot of damage done. A lot of people lost their lives in these crashes. Right, right. And you know, what I mean billing wasn't at the hearing. It was the head of the FAA was the oversight. So somebody from the IT department, and so these were government officials speaking about their review of the safety certification of the plane and their decision to grounded days after everybody else had. So it's kind of an odd tradition in the agency is defending its action the salts in some to some extent is is with Boeing, and so they're kind of walking this fine line of not totally defending a private company and trying to extend their own actions. But is there working are intertwined with these plane manufacturers now, it's my understanding that Boeing gets its term in the spotlight if you will before congress soon. Yes. Yes. So I was talking with Senator wicker who's the chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee on oversight over aviation issues. And he was saying that he does play the ring building that they are intending going has agreed that they will come. But he's kind of leaving it up to them to wait until the time is right and his justification was. Well, it doesn't make sense to bring the video if they won't be able to answering if our question, so let's wait until we get more information. Let's wait until they finish analyzing the flying FOX, maybe we have some better answers to the questions that we're going to have them. They are supposed to come up with the Senate Commerce Committee. But one question that lawmakers can start to ask have been asking. And that congress can start to address is whether or not this process at the FAA for approving, the seven thirty seven max was the right one and whether or not there needs to be reformed stood right, right? So the FAA was pushing back and didn't allow the acting administrator was pushing back on. The the perception that there is like a coziness for that. There's a delegation of thirty two billing employees there. There's sort of a a system where employees rely on billing engineers, and that's part of how the certification process goes through the end of the day. Boeing thought stop certifying thing are playing the FAA folks were making that final determination an said, you know, if we had to do this ourselves first of all like, you don't make your planes, and so we'd have to hire a whole new kind of people to to work here. And it would take something like ten thousand digital engineers instead of the several hundred thousand have it it'll be you know, almost two billion more for their budget needed to do this. He was it's a system that we need and he was trying to justify it if but Democrats necessarily objecting to the system ever lying on private sector expertise. They were just concerned that there'd be there's too much needs to be some additional safeguards to make sure that the the federal workers aren't feeling. Duly pressure to to to work for or on behalf of these companies bowing, his head pilots and reporters and some officials out to the plant in state of Washington were they make these planes, and has for its part suggested that there's really no need to change the process. No need to change the system that that this is this is an appropriate way of getting airplanes into the air. Right. I mean, you know, they're they're basically saying that this, you know, this is their technology third. One to best understand that it's their job to explain it. And make sure that federal agents are agencies are comfortable with it because they don't necessarily think they need to change the process because of compared to the number of flights with air, obviously, like crashes knitting. But there are basically their safety record is is good. And and there haven't been any significant of our problems. I would suggest. That they need to change anything. Finding that a little bit hard to swallow. Well. It's hard to swallow to. Yesterday was the cruise. Republican his that a chairman of aviation subcommittee. Hard. And especially compared to some of his other Republican colleagues was he was taking a pretty prosecutorial stance. So it's possible that we'll see some pushes should you additional regulation or Senator suggested maybe there like a cooling off period for at the employees where they couldn't, you know, one day, you working for the FAA, and then the next day working for going to try and do some of that, you know, this term coziness yesterday. So it's possible. Some some left motor OBI the result of this. But my guess would be that it would have to be something that comes as a recommendation for the IT rather than a congressional mandated proposal, especially given the makeup of congress right now. And we also had the story yesterday that Boeing said that it was agonisingly close to a software fix for the seven thirty seven max when the plane went down if they were that much aware of the. The issue involved here. Why was there such a delay in grounding the plane that question come up? You know, it was more like a Boeing was working on it and FAA was saying that they were in the past trusted, they trusted that they were going through this process. They trusted the the planes are safe and the FAA put out a pilot after the lion aircrash advising them that you know, this might initial and here's the protocol for how to handle it. If you have this similar type of problems in the plane, pointing it snows down and how to override the system and and kind of relying on belly to keep implementing the roll it out. So there was some questions about why did you why did you defer to Boeing on this? But basically with the you know, the the Aviation Administration. We're saying is that we didn't have enough data and without state. We couldn't make that call and all we had was this one crash at the time. You know, they didn't even have a lot of information from the liner crash. So they were you know. Trying to make the best decisions. They could with the information available.

"Thank you very much. We are live from the Bloomberg interactive brokers studio, and we're just seeing this on Twitter from the French a of p news agency frowns press citing a source as saying bullying will roll out a software upgrade for the seven seven max stall prevention system in ten days. Let's turn to Bloomberg government transportation. Reporter Sean Courtney to get some background on this and on how the handling of all this has gone over with lawmakers on Capitol Hill. Sean, welcome thanks for joining us of I on this word from AFP that there's a software fix in the works. This is where this investigation seems to have focused from the start questions on whether the crews of these two doomed flight's wrestled with that system and ultimately lost. That's exactly right. So yesterday, lawmakers got a briefing from Dan LL has the acting administrator at the FAA. And they came out of that meeting feeling pretty British reassured about the FAA's actions, and one of the things that the FAA assured them was that Boeing was working on a software fix to this. This auto pilot issue that seems to drive the knows the plane down, which is what's been cited in in both the recent deadly crashes. And so now, we have the news that looks like it's coming out in ten days. And so tell us a little bit about that system apparently planes aren't necessarily flown entirely. By the flight crews now, no no a lot of the work is done by an autopilot feature. The pilots ought to be paying attention to all the systems. And there's alerts and signals. But a lot of the work is done by computers, especially once they reach an altitude. And so the system seems to read the sensors incorrectly, and it senses that the plane is accelerating too quickly which could lead to a stall out. And so to compensate what it tends to what it does is. It drives the the nose of the plane down to try and slow the speed at the problem is that the sensors up here at least from initial results and some of the discussions with lawmakers, they appear to be misleading and then the pilots are either trusting the system too much or not sure how to respond to it because they might not have been sufficiently trained. So this has been, you know, there've been some reports that US pilots have experienced similar instance, where the noticed the plane down, but they disengaged the auto pilot. And so you haven't seen any crashes here as more and more evidence comes out, including recent evidence about the communications between the pilots and the air tower right after they took off basically is it. It likely that they'll be more criticism from lawmakers about the FAA and not this bipartisan support. Well, it's possible. I mean, we saw a split yesterday. You know, what they were agreeing with FAA's deliberative decision making process. But then both the Democrats said that they were concerned that the planes Louis they were certified in the way that the pilot training issue is handled. I was not done properly on that they want to see some oversight of that whether sending a letter to a for more information or organizing a hearing of some sort to get to the bottom of it. They weren't sure what their next step is going to be yesterday. But they indicated that they would move forward with something. With the Democrats talking about the Republicans. Now, I'm a little confused by the response though, because it seemed that people zeroed in on this software system right away. Right. From the start that there were there were similarities in the flight path of the planes, and that sort of thing that the one that crashed in October. And then this latest crash if that was indeed a question, why did it take the FAA so long to reach the conclusion it did? What the explanation that lawmakers gave yesterday when they all kind of stood side by side, Republicans and Democrats was that the FAA was being careful and waiting for data. They were trying not to make what Rick Larsen has Representative from Washington where Boeing space so they're trying to make a deliberative decision, not an emotional one. And so that was sort of the thought was that once they got more information that can make a better decision, and they didn't have enough at the blackbox things like that to make the call what kind of information are they getting in that perhaps we don't know about are they meeting with F, the FAA, etc. This is your estimate lawmakers. Yes lawmakers. Yes. Like we said yesterday I said yesterday the FAA came and ended up briefing with lawmakers, and they're getting regular updates, you know, during their in constant communication. Our staffs are checking in and waiting for more information. And I think we're we're all waiting at this point for the information from the black box or salts. NTSB is is waiting for that information, the National Transportation Safety board, and they're cooperating with Ethiopians and the French have blackbox to try and get the data and then analyze it. And then providing that back to congress and the FAA and bowing is part of this delay in in responding. The fact that a lot of people believed that there wasn't enough training on the part of the pilots in in both the Indonesian crash and the latest crash, and that perhaps you mentioned earlier, it was a matter of just turning off the autopilot, perhaps training might have accomplished much of it. If yesterday representatives Representative Sam graves who's a Republican from his he's the ranking member on the full committee transportation infrastructure committee. He said he went to the fact that they've been fifty thousand of these flights with this plane over North America, and we hadn't had any similar instances. And he's he noted that US pilots have very strict training standards. They know how to fly the planes are not just for lying on the computer. Even though in theory, you could and so he felt confident in the fact that we hadn't had this issue that because our pilots were trained sufficiently. But some let's have raised the concern that they felt like this plane was just treated like it was just a. A slight update on any other plane like maybe did a software patch or something like that. And they didn't get enough training. And that's where congressman defazio and congressman Larson more information from the F A and how they handled it. Our thanks once again to Sean Courtney, Bloomberg government transportation reporter and just a reminder.

Airlines fear long grounding of Boeing 737 MAX jets after Ethiopian crash
"Today in Paris, French aviation. Authorities began examining the cockpit voice and flight data recorders of an Ethiopian Airlines jet analysts from the National Transportation Safety board have joined them as they try to figure out why the Boeing seven thirty seven max eight crashed Sunday not long after takeoff late yesterday. The Federal Aviation Administration ordered the seven thirty seven max fleet grounded after dozens of countries and airlines had already done. So as NPR's Russell Lewis reports the FAA's close relationship with the airlines, and the manufacturers it regulates is under scrutiny once again today at Ronald Reagan national airport outside Washington FA acting administrator Daniel L was defending his agency's delayed decision to ground the seven thirty seven max fleet.

Donald Trump follows lead of other nations and grounds Boeing 737 Max planes
"But a pattern of crashes and other safety concerns were enough to ground the worldwide fleet of one of Boeing's most important planes bowing to the inevitable yesterday. President Trump announced the US would join other countries and ground all of Boeing seven thirty-seven max aircraft. This followed a deadly crash last weekend of an Ethiopian Airlines, max jet. It was the second accident involving that kind of aircraft in the last five months. What took the FAA so long, and what does all this mean for you and me as air travelers joining us from NPR west near Los Angeles is Andy pastor a senior special writer with the Wall Street Journal who covers aviation and space, Andy welcome to thanks for having me here, by the way, we did invite Boeing and the FAA to come on this program. Neither responded to our invitation. Those invitation stand and the acting administrator. Her of the FAA spoke to morning edition, both of them have gone on the record about the crashes, and we'll get to their statements in just a bit. But Andy, let's just get the basic information. I what led up to the grounding of the Boeing max planes. This has been a worldwide movement. Of course, there was a crash as you said of of a lion air liner six ten flight six ten which occurred at the end of October and. Really shine the spotlight on a specific automated flight control system that Boeing developed for this plane, it is not on any of their other aircraft. And if it misfires under certain, circumstances and pilots don't react properly. You can have a fatal accident has happened with lion air, and the whole issue became much more heated because this past Sunday there was an atheist airline jet same model, and it appears from very early. Preliminary clues it may have been a similar sequence of events which brought that plane down. So you had tremendous pressure overseas beginning with the Chinese, and then dozens of other countries to ground this aircraft, and the FAA actually held held its position that it didn't have enough information and data to to do that until until this week. And I do want to talk about the data the FAA had I should note, by the way, we do. Welcome your questions and. Thoughts about the story regarding Boeing, especially if you work in aviation, Email us one A W A M U dot org. Tweet us at one A or comment on our Facebook page, and the you mentioned this automated flight control system on the Boeing max planes are systems like that unusual. No. But the design of this system is Wisconsin under- question and to put this into a little bit of context automation. Of course has been a growing phenomenon in many fields particularly in aviation, but with this particular plane under certain circumstances, the pilots may not know exactly what's going on issues about training their issues about what what what information is in the manuals so automation by itself as a tremendous help to safety, but the specific question here is how to make pilots aware of the system, and how to prevent the system from misfiring or or going off in a situation where it shouldn't. And that's. A design issue. And this is really the first time in two decades that Boeing has faced specific questions about its design principles leading to fatal accidents. And that's why this is so
Boeing, Federal Aviation Administration And Indonesia discussed on Post Reports
"Our hearts, go out to all of those who lost loved ones to their friends to the families in both the opium Andy lion. Airlines crashes that involved the seven thirty seven max aircraft to terrible terrible thing. Boeing is an incredible company. They are working very very hard right now. The US has now joined the UK, Canada, Mexico, China and dozens of other countries in grounding, Boeing, seven thirty seven max, eight aircraft. This comes after Sunday's Ethiopian Airlines crash that killed everyone on board. It was the second time in six months that this model of seven thirty seven has crashed shortly after takeoff now crash. Investigators are recent figure out what went wrong and on Wednesday. The Federal Aviation Administration announced that at least one critical clue has been found. They reported that they have found something in the wreckage. We don't know what it is yet. But they think that it indicate some commonality between the lion airplane crash that killed hundred and eighty nine people in Indonesia, the invoked over and the THEO pian airlines crash that killed one hundred fifty seven just this Sunday. Erin, Greg is a business reporter for the post. This is something that basically anybody who is associated with Boeing had been saying, oh my God. We hope there's nothing that ties these two together, which would basically implicate Boeing and potential tissues. Now, we know there is something tying together. Whether it's Boeing's fault yet to be determined by. This is a very serious crisis for the company because the commonality between that lion air crash, and this THEO ping airlines crash is the fact that they were using the same new model of plane. That's right. This is seven thirty seven max eight it's basically the newest version of a long standing seven thirty seven that's been used since the sixties the idea that a brand new plane in Indonesia was literally brand new any THEO Pia had been fight for just a couple of months would have potential equipment issues is very worrying. I it suggests there's something wrong with the plane and not with the people who were maintaining it. So you've been reporting on the concerns about this model of airplane and. And one of the things that you've reported is that there was a meeting after that line aircrash back in last November that meeting was between Boeing and pilot's union. Tell me more about that meeting. So according to the pilots, basically, it was sort of a coming together where Boeing was basically saying, look, we wanna give you all the information that we have about what's in the system. The pilots who were in that meeting that I spoke with said that before that they were very very upset with Boeing this all sort of hurdled into public view win Boeing disclosed that they had put a new system in the seven thirty seven max eight called em- casts. Basically, it's an automated system that certain dangerous situations can nudge the nose of the plane downward. There is a way to override it is just that pilots were concerned that they had not been properly trained on how to do. So. And they were worried that that may have played a role in the Indonesian crash. If you're a pilot, you're very very. You worried about the idea that you might not have control of the plane in a critical moment. So this disclosure, basically through the American pilot unions into a little bit of a frenzy the two airlines in the US that have these planes or south west in American Airlines. So they immediately basically raised their voices and said, we're not okay with this. Why was this not included in training? A pilot talked to yesterday told me that the training for this new plan consisted of a one hour long. Ipad course that was how they were trained on the new plane. What do you know about what was discussed at that meeting? The pilots basically came to that meeting and said here are few things that we would like to be changed three of them were very specific technical aspects of how they would they think that the planes should be changed for some foremost that when the system kicks in it shouldn't nudge, the plane's nose all the way down word if it's designed to prevent a stall. But there I was just this used to be included in training. They ask for flight, simulators, they. I still don't have those. According to the pilots I'm talking to that's been in the works for several months now. I don't know how long it takes to make a new flight simulator. But it's been four months, and they still don't have them. It wasn't until after the second crash that Boeing in the FAA came out and said, okay, we are going to update the system on the max eight that Rivera specific software changes that were announced Monday evening, and basically at the same time in a little bit of an about face. They also said we're going to add new training here. There's going to be new crew training for this system after initially thinking, basically, well, the max eight isn't that different from the older seven thirty sevens. We don't need to do much retraining there. So the pilots are making the case that if a update and Boeing subsequent announcement really came from the discussions that started in that meeting. So these pilots are saying they're concerned that they weren't being trained properly on this new plane software whose job is it to enforce that or to make sure. That pilots are properly trained. So one point that Boeing will probably make here is that what they did as far as putting the training together and setting up the software for the new plane that was all approved by the FAA. I'm not aware of any evidence that suggests that Boeing ignored any government policies in doing what it did. I think next the magnifying last is going to be on the FAA for why they certify the plane the way they did. They did Serena there's not actually in administrator in charge of the FAA there's an acting administrator, but there's no permanent person in the top job. Do you think that has anything to do with the fact that there has been so much criticism of the FAA's response to all of this? I would say there's some possibility that that has played a role in their response to the crash, but the other thing that is important to remember is that this plane has been dreamed up for years. This is something that Boeing has been preparing for very very long time. It's not the case that this process would have happened within the last year or so so I would say that the fact that there's no confirmed fade minister it might account for any slowness on the part of a to respond after lion air. But I think it would be highly unlikely that that contributed to how the certification or the training happened on the seven thirty seven, Maxine. Erin. Greg is a business reporter for the post the black boxes recovered from the ups. Airlines crash site are now in France for review the National Transportation Safety board is sending agents to aid with the investigation there. It could take as long as a month to recover that data.

We're talking about Valentine's Day now. We're talking about toxic chemicals. Yeah. Definitely not something. That would give you like nightmares or anything these. We're talking about PF as which is polish floral alcohol substances. Right. I'll take your word for that. Which is why we're calling the pants. Exactly. This is a manmade substance, and you can find that in things like food packaging cleaners. Water repellent fabrics Teflon, coated cookware cleaning products, firefighting foams, knew everything about that when they put out a house fire, and they've tried that foam on it is this is this is one of the chemicals in that foam. And some of that stuff has from not just that. But the other sources have seeped into the Brown. Water sources that provide millions of people drinking water. So they have these things have been around for a while. It's not this is not new. They say that you know, they're looking at this. And they say there are health risks associated with you know, the chemicals that they've already known about this is like I said, this is not new what what they wanna do is. They have come up with action plan, basically that commits the EPA to take important steps that will improve how we research monitor to address PF, and that came straight from Andrew Wheeler who is the acting administrator I did a news conference about this. And so by the end of the year of the agency will will give a regulatory determination, which is I guess, you know, they're finding this is the safe water. The safe drinking water act requires them to do the next step that they've got to do. But you know, a lot of folks are not real happy about this. Because they say, you know, it's not that they don't want to be protected. They don't feel like they're going far enough. And they don't feel like there's been fast enough. They think he's kind of dragging their feet about this. And they congressional Democrats on the committee that they're heard this testimony from they said, look you when it comes to repealing regulations you guys move with speed when it comes to. Hey is our drinking water safe? There's the well we're going to put together an action plan, and we're gonna see about the end of the year in the end. That's what they don't like they don't think that it's gone far enough. And I don't think it's moving fast sense of urgency there, right? All right. Tonge powers. Have a great weekend. Thank you.

Mr Chairman, and thank you, Mr. Wheeler for your willingness to serve, and I know that you have been a great acting administrator at EPA would would certainly fill that role in a permanent capacity. I would like to say Senator Cardin's I echo his concerns being state. That's impacted by the Chesapeake Bay watershed West Virginia, obviously has impacts there. And I am fully supportive of any work that is being done that benefits not just Maryland. But the whole region is Virginia's we talked about. I'd also like just make a comment about the shutdown. I I don't I out speaking for myself. I think that a government shutdown. I've said is a useless process. And it's it's painful for your agency and others that are impacted and for the American people, but it's fully within the realm of both of our Republican and democrat colleagues to to come to a a reasonable conclusion here, and I am floor the other side to to come to come to the table. I would like to ask you about some of the criticisms that have been lodged against you and give you a chance to respond. Some of our colleagues have talked about the responsiveness of the EPA to congressional letters inquiries. If you could just flesh that out a little bit. And then yesterday there was a letter that was published that talked about your negligence in recusing yourself from certain matters. I just like to give you a chance to address those issues. Thank you very much. It briefly. That'd be great. Sure. I believe that we have in Rivera responsive to letters from from congress as well as our foia. I Sandra for you. Administrator's office in particular we've received a four hundred percent increase in foia request during this administration. I'm so we are we've added on a lot of additional employees to process things like that on the recusals side. I've worked with the career ethics officials at the agency's since day one I have recused myself from any work involving my prior law firm and all of my prior clients under the both the ethics regulations as well as the Trump ethics pledge, and I have not violated that and I continued to consult with our ethics officials the career ethics officials on a regular basis. Thank you. On pizzas. I talked about this and the concerns that I have not just give it really nationally. You mentioned that a management plan is going to be coming out. It has more than just one agency. That's weighing in on that. I kind of couldn't tell from your answer. Whether you're going to be setting a standard in that management plan or not. We're going to be recommending and moving forward on a number of different areas. Under a number of different statues were looking at on the waterside as well as the circle Superfund side and the Tosca program as well. This is going to be when it comes out our management plan a multimedia approach to dealing with P before. So that's ain't now the specifics of what's management fan because it's currently in interagency. Okay. So TB TB released next weekend at the shutdown is going to be delayed slightly. Okay. Another question. I have is on the water management issues. There have been a series of reports in Appalachia that have said that the leakage out of our municipal and our rural systems of water from is like in west Virginia's fifty five percent is loss at a significant cost to taxpayers and also ratepayers and also the environment and for areas that are short on water, which doesn't happen to be ours. But for areas of short on water, this has got to be a daunting challenge for water systems all around the country. And I was wondering if you are if this is something that you see being addressed that you could address at EPA are there specific programs there under the drinking water state revolving fund that we might have some possibilities to help these systems get more efficient and be better stewards of the environment. Water systems. I think there is. I think you're correct on the state revolving loan fund, I think we can be helpful and certainly would be more than happy to work with you and your staff on trying to address those issues in West Virginia. I mean, it can't it's obviously a countrywide issue. And I think I think a lot of it has to do with the age of the. When the systems were built in how they haven't been. Been re constituted. I also on the clean power plan replacement. We heard that there was an emissions rise in twenty eighteen that is attributed to a cold. You said a cold cold winter hot summer and also to more economic activity. You said you expect that to go down over time. What gives you the confidence? If this. If this economy rolls the way, we think it's going to that. That will actually we're human to see new investments in more energy efficiency on not only on the electric power sector. But also in the automobile is we still have the cafe standards in place to reduce treatise submissions going forward there and under once ace is fully implemented. We will see thirty four percent reductions in CO two by the twenty two thousand five levels. So we see across across the board for all the industries that we're working with Russell seen reductions in emissions as well. That we believe that the c o two greenhouse gas emissions will continue to go down. Thank you. Thank you, Senator Capito. Senator sanders. Well, thank you for being with us. Wheel. President Trump has indicated his belief that climate change is a hoax perhaps perpetrated by the Chinese do agree. I believe the climate change is real I believe that man has an impact on it. And president has said that climate change is a hoax. Do agree with him. I not used the hoax word myself. Nicely leading scientists around the world looking at many many hundreds of reports. Have indicated that. We have twelve years in order to stop the worst impacts of climate change. And what they are talking about are rising sea levels more drought. More extreme weather disturbances more wildfires more migrations of people, do you agree with the scientific community that climate change is a global crisis. That must be addressed in an aggressive way. I believe that climate change is a global issue that must be addressed globally. No one country can busted my question, sir. Michael, I don't have a lot of time. And I appreciate your answering the questions scientific community has said that climate change is one of the great crises facing our planet. And if there is not unprecedented action to transform our energy system away from fossil fuel to sustainable energy and energy efficiency that will be repre. Rable damage in the United States and in virtually every country on earth. Do you agree with the scientific community? I would not call it. The greatest crisis Meltzer. I I consider it. A huge issue that has to be addressed globally. Well, what you are. I found it interesting. You are the nominee to be head of the bar. Metal protection agency. You just in your opening statement did not mention the word climate change. Now. How does that happen that the nominee to be head of the Environmental Protection Agency? Does not mention the words climate change at a time when the scientific community thinks the climate change is a great environmental crisis facing this planet, should the American people have confidence that you were going to help us deal with this global crisis. Yes, they should have confidence because we are moving forward to reduce CO two are ase proposal will reduce CO two approximately the same levels that the clean power plan would have if it had been implemented, and we're reducing show to Franck cafe standards, and we're also addressing greenhouse gases through our methane program, as well, you're dressing scientific community tells us that we have a crisis, and that we need unprecedented action to dramatically. Reduce carbon emissions not only in this country. But around the world now, we all the strongest economy in the world. And if the leadership of the Environmental Protection Agency in the United States says the China and Russia and India and two countries all over the world that we have got to move aggressively to protect this planet for our children, and our grandchildren. We can have some impact on the entire international community are you prepared to do that? I am we are implementing the laws that congress has passed by Gelinas new. We need you to come here we will implement those while that's not what I'm talking about. We have people over here who do not believe the climate change is even real, but you are the nominee for the leadership of the Environmental Protection Agency. We'll you provide the leadership in this country and the world to say that we are concerned about the future of this planet for our kids, and our grandchildren. We are concerned about the future of this planner for our children, our grandchildren, and we are implementing the laws of them passed by congress, including the Clean Air Act and this waiver moving forward with the ace proposal treatise CO two from the electric power generating sector. We're moving forward with the safe. Cafe proposal. Three Decio two levels is rising sea levels concern. Or is that a hoax rising sea levels is a concern. And we believe in and we are looking at. I'm sorry adaptation adaptation to help on rising sea levels in absent additional congressional authority. Boy are with the people who don't believe in climate change. But you are going to be the leader. Perhaps of the environmental protection. We need your assistance now is rising sea levels real. What are we going to do? To minimize that. What are we going to do is other wildfires that we have seen in California? And elsewhere. All those related to climate change in your judgment. There's probably some relation to climate change. I think the biggest issue with the wildfires has been forced management. That's the biggest issue is the droughts that we are seeing that is the biggest issue not the droughts in my opinion. Yes. Okay. Thank you very much. Senator Bernie Sanders independent from Vermont questioning nominee. Andrew Wheeler today before the environment and public works committee. Thank you Senator Sanders. We've already heard from administrator Wheeler that supports innovation as a means to reduce emissions. I'd recently written a New York Times op Ed entitled cut carbon through innovation.

I ask unanimous consent tender under the record New York Times editorial December eighteenth two thousand eighteen cut carbon through innovation not regulation without him. Objections though long as my response to it can also be put in the record. It was a very nice letter to the editor. Thank you. Republican John Barrosso. And you also heard democrat, Sheldon Whitehouse. I'll bring it over here. And we'll have them be a pair. I place an article in there in response as well without objection. Senator rounds? Thank you. Mr Chairman, Mr. Wheeler. I'm going to give you an opportunity to share a little bit. In terms of the approaches we need on an international basis, but before we get into that. I'd really like some specific thoughts with regard to an item that you do have control over and that's the nationwide plan to develop e fifteen markets. Last week in EPA spokesman commented on the EPA proposal to permit the sale of your around fifteen which is fifteen percent alcohol and eighty five percent regular petroleum products. And the quote that was given to us was is this. This is a priority for both President Trump and acting administrator Wheeler the ongoing partial shutdown will not impede EPA's ability to keep our deadline. I think one of the concerns that a lot of producers in the upper mid west have with regard to ethanol is that in order to get into the summer driving season. We really need to have the guidelines and rules laid out as quickly as possible. Would do you believe that you will be able to commit to finalizing the rule permitting year round sale? The fifteen before the summer driving season starts as of today. Yes. But I do caveat that with we're unable to work on it right now during the government shutdown. Where are you in the process? And Wendy you expect the proposed rule to be released. What what's your best guess? And I understand you got a government shutdown. You gotta work around as well. I believe we were originally planning on issuing the proposal in February we've been you know, we kept I kept the EPA open an additional week longer than the rest of the federal government. So we haven't been shut down as long as some of the other federal agencies and departments..

Trump administration poised to unveil new vehicle emissions rules
"Down another one point three percent sixty seven eight thousand five a barrel NASDAQ up twenty, one up three tenths of one percent s&p down three now down one. Tenth of one percents Dow Industrial's down fifty seven a. Drop of. Two tenths of one percent I'm Charlie Pellett and that is a Bloomberg business flash thanks. Charlie Andrew Wheeler has only been Leading the EPA for. Three weeks but in that. Time he's made it clear that he'll be adopting much of his predecessors Scott Pruitt's, agenda but not his headline grabbing, habits during his first congressional testimony today Wheeler said President Trump gave him three tasks when he, was appointed acting administrator clean up the air clean up the water and provide regulatory. Relief to help the economy thrive and create more jobs for American, workers I believe we accomplish all, three at the same, time in fact we have. Already made progress on all three fronts in just the past few weeks joining us is Jennifer Deloitee Bloomberg news, environment and energy regulation reporter generally you're at the hearings today did he. Explain how he's going to deregulate at the same time. As cleaning. Up the air and water Well he talked a lot about regulatory certainty the idea that. You can process hermits more quickly and give answers to the businesses that are in the, developers that are, seeking permits involving water or land that's really where I think the. Rubber meets the road where you have this. Flash and where he, is hoping, to bridge the divide, any big headlines from him on any important issues that you following absolutely so what was really interesting today is. Of course how heavily the hearing focused on policy a. Little bit, of a change from a hearing we saw with his predecessor Scott Pruitt there were. Dominated by concerns about ethics and spending today Andrew Wheeler indicated that. He wants to reach some kind. Of compromise with California over vehicle emission standards the administration is on the verge of releasing its proposal who Ease Obama era standards that aim to increase fuel economy requirements. And and greenhouse gas emission requirements for cars over the coming years and they're gonna freeze those in the proposal the proposal also is, going to take aim at California's unique ability to regulate emissions in. Its. Own turf and and what we only, today is he'd like to see a fifty state solution some kind of compromise that California can be, on board with and that, wouldn't require. Him to go after California's authority so Jen in in. This statement or the report that's going to be unveiled is it going to still talk about trying. To take back a California's the special powered has over emissions Right are, reporting indicates that indeed this, proposal tomorrow won't we'll still have that very strongly in it that it will asserts that California's own emission. Roles are preempted California shouldn't have a waiver allowing them to to regulate emissions in this special way and? That, it. Will of course take this harder approach to, freezing the Obama era standards that said we learn made pains today to say this is just a proposal and of course at. The proposal that involves not just his agency. The EPA but is also being written with the department of transportation where you have some political appointees that. Are pushing this harder stance so that that we're going to see these tensions I, think play out over coming months but he took pains today, distress that this is just an opening bed and his. Goal of the compromise is it fair to say that Wheeler is auditioning for, the job full time as it has to lose oh absolutely this is, an audition an on the job On addiction. As it work, Senator Baraza that chairman of the environment and public works committee, today said he'd like to see Wheeler get the job full time it doesn't we don't have any indication that the president. Is preparing to nominate him anytime before the November elections and, issue will probably linger for, awhile but no question everyone is watching his performance from the White House to the Senate Jen you've written. About how some people might read some of his actions as being backing off of Pruitt's agenda but they? Would, be. Wrong explain what his aim seems to be What we see with. Wheeler is. Really a continuation of crew with gender he's still aims to ease many of the same regulations that Pruitt targeted for revision or repeal that. Includes Obama-era regulations, governing a greenhouse gas emissions from oil wells and from power plants and. Of course the the car proposal we just talked about what is different is that even though the agenda, is going to be continuing. And is clearly continuing in similar fashion Wheeler is taking a slower approach he's a little bit more cautious you might be a little less aggressive in leaning into some of these policy changes stomach. Think that will that he's more interested in doing a lot of the dotting is and crossing of cheese it's necessary to ensure these rollbacks are supported and can withstand legal scrutiny That's the question we'll see answered later on. How, well he does at that but he's taking a slower and more cautious approach and acting some of the, same reforms now Miller is. A former lobbyist and he did get a question about his ethics what. Was that right at the very. Top of the hearing he was asked about his willingness to recuse himself from past clients he's he's indicated that he will not interact with or be involved in a decision that directly involve past. Clients including notably the coal miner Bob Murray head of Murray Energy Corporation But that really was a remarkably the only ethics question in this hearing, where Franklin previous airings involving, Pruitt were dominated by inquiries about ethics So in general. Gen about thirty seconds here, did it see less did it seem less, confrontational than the hearings with. Pruitt night, and day absolutely less confrontational he. Was given. A warm welcome relatively speaking by both Democrats. And Republicans including some approved fiercest critics all right thanks. So much for that report that's, Jennifer Deloite, Bloomberg news environment and energy regulation reporter we'll have more on those Wheeler hearings throughout the day coming up on. Bloomberg politics policy power law the White House backs away from a change that would slash tax bills for wet wealthy investors and. A reminder you can listen to. All today's interviews, as well as past episodes of the show at anytime on Bloomberg.
