"Things considered continues, mitts 5 O one. Live from NPR news in Washington, I'm Jack spear. House investigators today laid out in stunning detail the origins of violence at the U.S. capitol on January 6th, 2021, using video and live testimony to further describe then president Donald Trump's involvement. Committee co chair Liz Cheney sang Trump knew the election was legitimate, but still put out a call to his followers on social media. We will also see today how president Trump summoned a mob to Washington and how the president stole an election lies provoked that mob to attack the capitol. One of those who stormed the capitol, Jason van ten hove, a former spokesman of the far right group the oath keepers as recanted his views, he says extremist groups are growing ever more dangerous. We've had the potential from Bundy ranch on. I mean, being boots on the ground at these standoffs and they were standoffs where there were firearms pointed across lines at federal law enforcement agencies. You know, whatever it may be with that particular standoff. Meanwhile, ended today's hearing with a bombshell saying Trump apparently tried to contact a January 6th witness and noting the Justice Department has been notified. Pentagon officials say the U.S. has killed a leader of the Islamic State in Syria in a drone strike U.S. central command saying today, Maher algal was killed and an unidentified senior leader of the group was seriously injured. Strike apparently occurred in a town in northwest Syria near the Turkish border, The Pentagon says there were no civilian casualties, so that has not been immediately confirmed. Mexico's leader in Washington D.C. today told President Biden now is the time to let migrants come to work in the U.S. legally with visas. He also urged for an expansion of trade within North America.

"<Speech_Male> So from <Speech_Male> our perspective, <Speech_Male> we are, <Speech_Male> I'm working right <Speech_Male> now for <Speech_Male> a general external <Speech_Male> hemostatic indication <Speech_Male> from there we'll go <Speech_Male> into trauma <Speech_Male> you start looking at <Speech_Male> the looking at <Speech_Male> military and <Speech_Male> emergency. Even things <Speech_Male> like dentistry <Speech_Male> were on the human side <Speech_Male> being <Speech_Male> able to <Speech_Male> stop a molar from <Speech_Male> bleeding in <Speech_Male> two seconds as opposed <Speech_Male> to waiting all day, <Speech_Male> especially if you're a patient <Speech_Male> on blood thinners <Speech_Male> to what to get that tooth <Speech_Male> under control could <Speech_Male> be a game <Speech_Male> changer. Even if <Speech_Male> it may not be life threatening <Speech_Male> bleeding, and then <Speech_Male> looking at this <Speech_Male> as a <Speech_Male> surgical hemostatic <Silence> device, it is <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> something that we're working to <Speech_Male> bring to market as well, <Speech_Male> but then beyond that, <Speech_Male> like we mentioned and <Speech_Male> discussed earlier <Speech_Male> in this <Silence> conversation, <Speech_Male> is <Speech_Male> taking the technology <Speech_Male> which having <Speech_Male> a <Speech_Male> biocompatible plant <Speech_Male> based matrix that stays <Speech_Male> in place and doesn't <Speech_Male> go where until you want it <Speech_Male> to is <Speech_Male> helpful for other <Speech_Male> applications. And so <Speech_Male> things like <Speech_Male> potentially branching <Speech_Male> out into drug <Speech_Male> delivery or therapeutic <Speech_Male> delivery, a tissue <Speech_Male> regeneration. <Speech_Male> And so on <Speech_Male> are well within <Speech_Male> the scope <SpeakerChange> of what <Speech_Male> this technology can do. <Speech_Male> Yeah, I <Speech_Male> love the dental application. <Speech_Male> I lost <Speech_Male> a tooth a couple of years <Speech_Male> ago in an accident <Speech_Male> and, <Speech_Male> you know, it's amazing. <Speech_Male> How much they <Speech_Music_Male> bleed when they come out. <Speech_Music_Male> <Speech_Male> But <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> it's something <Speech_Male> where <Speech_Male> it's amazing. So I <Speech_Male> also had the opportunity <Speech_Male> to shadow a <Speech_Male> veterinary dental <Speech_Male> practitioner <Speech_Male> and just seeing <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> how much blood there actually <Speech_Male> is and how difficult <Speech_Male> it is to see what you're <Speech_Male> doing and having something <Speech_Male> that can clean up the <Speech_Male> field <Speech_Male> and help the patient <Speech_Male> recover sooner. <Speech_Male> It's <Speech_Male> a game changer. It's really interesting <Speech_Male> that I <Speech_Male> didn't even occur to <Silence> the sitting occurred to me earlier <Speech_Male> that <Speech_Male> one of the <Speech_Male> huge applications <Speech_Male> must be in people <Speech_Male> with <Speech_Male> genetic clotting <Speech_Male> deficiencies. <Speech_Male> So folks with different <Speech_Male> types of hemophilia <Speech_Male> are a factor 5 things <Speech_Male> like this, <Speech_Male> are there <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> opportunities to treat <Silence> them <SpeakerChange> in ways <Speech_Male> that would <Silence> maybe be lifesaving? <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Exactly. <Speech_Male> And again, <Speech_Male> that is the benefit <Speech_Male> of having a device <Speech_Male> that works <Speech_Male> primarily by <Speech_Male> mechanical action. <Speech_Male> And while <Speech_Male> you can't pull the product <Speech_Male> off immediately you have <Speech_Male> to wait for that <Speech_Male> clot to form naturally. <Speech_Male> It allows <Speech_Male> the same type <Speech_Male> of <Speech_Male> confidence. And <Speech_Male> hemostasis, <Speech_Male> whether you have <Speech_Male> a clotting compromised <Speech_Male> patient or <Silence> a healthy <Silence> patient. <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Now, I love it. <Speech_Male> So if anyone wanted to <Speech_Male> know more about the <Speech_Male> product or <Speech_Male> its progress <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> through the approval <Speech_Male> process, <Silence> where would <SpeakerChange> they look? <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> So I would direct <Speech_Male> anyone who's interested <Speech_Male> to our website, which <Speech_Male> is WWW <Speech_Male> dot <Speech_Male> salon dot <Speech_Male> com <Silence> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> dot com. <Speech_Male> And do you have a <Speech_Male> comment on Twitter <Speech_Male> or social media? <Speech_Male> So <Speech_Male> we do. We <Speech_Male> have Instagram, <Speech_Male> which is at Crescent. <Speech_Male> We have Instagram <Speech_Male> at veteran <Speech_Male> U.S.. <Speech_Male> We also have a <Speech_Male> Facebook page under the <Speech_Music_Male> same LinkedIn <Speech_Male> page <Silence> and a Twitter <Speech_Male> with the same. <Speech_Male> Yeah, I think I'll <Speech_Male> follow because I think it's <Speech_Male> cool. I think you guys <Speech_Male> could put up <Speech_Male> success stories <Speech_Male> from veterinary <Speech_Male> applications and with <Silence> a few hearts and minds. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> So thank you <Speech_Male> very much for joining me <Speech_Male> today. We were speaking <Speech_Male> with Joe landolina. <Speech_Male> He's the <Speech_Male> cofounder and CEO <Speech_Male> of <Speech_Male> crest salon. <Speech_Male> And thank you <Speech_Male> for what you do and <Speech_Male> <SpeakerChange> looking forward <Silence> to exciting products <Silence> in the future. <Speech_Male> Well, thank <Speech_Male> you very much, Kevin. It was <Speech_Male> a pleasure to talk to you today.

"Now, that's really good. Is this something that could have a consumer animal application sometimes soon? And the reason I ask is, you know, we, I live on a farm, and we have a lot of animals that because of either an accident or maybe a attack of a predator that you get bleeding events that you have to stop. And have to treat. And, you know, emergency vets are extremely expensive and you usually have to put an animal down rather than do that plus it usually happens to super inconvenient time and it's far away. Most people who are on farms are minutes to hours away from a veterinary facility. So is there any room for this kind of thing for a home based application? So a consumer product is definitely well on our radar, both for animal use as well as for human use eventually. However, the product that we have currently on the market was really designed by packaging and by training for use by search and so it will not be immediate that we release a product like this, but I definitely see the use. Yeah, I do too. I wish we had some here last week. We had a goose who got his head caught. It's mating season and they do dumb things. And end up getting caught on the neck and you get some bleeding and it's very difficult to control with a medicine cabinet solutions. But what about a human? So you mentioned all this for veterinary application, seems like, you know, for human trauma is going to be the big one, especially military or in first responders. When is this expected to be available for that application? Sure. So we're in a really exciting time right now. A crest alone because we filed in November of last year for our first human use. And with the FDA. So we're expecting that the FDA should clear that product for use in humans sometime this year. Having that means that we'll be able to continue our mission of saving lives by expanding to human lives. Does having it be a natural compound or a compound at least derived from algae change the FDA's evaluation process or you're not testing some sort of synthetic analog of some mother kind of drug, you're using something that is already made and does that change the dynamic of this at all? So while I can't speak for the FDA, it definitely makes the regulatory process simpler from our perspective because we have two materials that have been used before on the market, and that lends itself incredibly well to the 5 ten ks, predicate device program, meaning that if you can show that there is technology that has already had an established safety and efficacy profile. It shortens the path to market. And that's something that has been very helpful. But what are the next level spin off events of this kind of technology? Are there other applications that we haven't discussed here that might be on your radar?.

"I mean, I remember I used these as a kid working in a lab. They are, we use a variant of sodium alginate, and we use a variant that that's uncle derived. And these materials, again, the trick here is the way that we purify them. But from a chemical name and from a chemical species, these are super simple and common materials that we're able to blend together in the way. But like I said, if you took any old alternate from sigma from Amazon, or you took any old chitosan from sigma for Amazon, then you mix them together, you wouldn't get something that worked. The trick here is the way we mix those together. It's really fascinating stuff. That kind of repurposing when nature already made to solve problems and Al-Qaeda's in especially. To be able to come up with a solution for a problem in fungal fungi, more than anything else, I guess. But let's talk a little bit more about it. You know, as application. A lot of discussion around bandages and band aids, that kind of thing. That they've said, well, we're going to start to impregnate these other compounds like antibiotics or even growth hormone to speed the healing of the wound. Is that kind of on the radar with this kind of product? And so while that's not something we have an indication for right now, it definitely at least the engineer in me sees no issue with being able to impregnate this matrix with anything and being able to give it a variable profile. Meaning that if you want something to elute immediately or loot over the course of a few weeks, that is doable with the way that this matrix is set up. And so looking at the delivery of antibiotics or other Therapeutics is something that is definitely an honor radar. And you mentioned before that this is being used in veterinary applications. And can you give us an idea of what some of the more common usages are, and are there any particular stories you've heard of where this really made the difference in saving an animal's life? Of course, so we, and what's interesting is that some of the bleeds that you see in animal health may not seem as traumatic or as hard to stop, but dentistry as an example. If.

"Okay, that helps a lot because I'm trying to picture how this can work. It seems almost like a little bit of magic. Especially when you start talking about factor 12 and all of the other factors and, you know, I won't bore the audience to death with how clotting work, but it's a real, very careful orchestration. So how does this stuff work in a, it's so does it work in a mechanical way that does not trigger other types of clotting. So in other words, you know indiscriminate clotting that could lead to any other thrombogenic events like maybe heart attack or stroke. Sure. So one of the benefits of this material is its hyper localized response, meaning when you put this into tissue, you will only see fibrin production right at the barrier right at the surface of the gel. And that layer is typically so thin that it does not progress into the blood vessel and because our product is a single bolus, and it doesn't break up. It means that you're at the very least, it doesn't increase the risk of embolism. And then beyond that, I mean, the material properties that we have are primarily mechanical, which is very important. So we had in our animal health product, better gel a few weeks ago, we had a patient which was an exotic cat that had ingested rodenticide. And rodenticide works by completely reducing the ability of the body to produce a clock. So this patient was effectively bleeding in water. And our product was still able to be efficacious in that scenario. And while you can't remove the product, leaving behind an endogenous clot, if you leave it in place, it shows that that mechanical action is primary to the mode of action of our product. Well, this is really fascinating stuff and really solves an important problem. So we're speaking with Joe landolina. He's the CEO and cofounder of.

"I've had injuries before that have been extremely have had some bleeding and maybe had some compounds in them that were actually limiting the ability of the blood to clot. And I was in a remote area and I used a tuba superglue to close it up. It worked. It sounds like you're in a similar vein that you're using polysaccharide compound, something that is that's working as an adhesive, but here's the part that I don't get. This compound kind of comes as a piece that's in the syringe that you applied to the wound, or to whatever, but why does it not just work as an adhesive inside the tube? You see what I'm saying? It's not like a two party epoxy that you put together that a chemical reaction occurs. Or is it some sort of reaction that's happening with oxygen or with the body or what makes it form a patch for the wound on the wound itself and maybe not in other contexts. Perfect. So it's really a two stage response. So the first stage of sticks of tropic, which I'll explain in a second. And the second stage is ionic, which will also explain. So takes your tropic fluids like corn starch and water, are those that when you flow it out of the syringe, the material properties change as a function of movement of this fluid. So that means that the gel as you deploy it out of the syringe will thin considerably. And when it hits the wound, it'll immediately recoil and thicken up. And then especially if you apply pressure to it, it becomes thicker and thicker as you apply that pressure. And that allows it to in the syringe be a paste or flowable gel, and then as you deploy it, it thins down and then thickens up to actually grab onto and help along with that adhesive. Action. The second is through ionic action. And ion transfer between the gel and the tissue itself will allow the gels function to be only temporary. And what that means is that as time goes on, from the blood from the surrounding tissue, ions from the body will transfer into the gel and that will reduce the adhesive profile. Because what you want in an injury like this is you want the body to be able to create its own cloth. The worst thing that you can do in a massive hemorrhage is to have the gel itself, which is a massive bolus, connected to the fiber and patch..

"We're going to talk about an issue with bleeding or even more importantly stopping bleeding. Now, bleeding is an interesting process because as blood moves, we have to walk a very fine line. Between this issue of blood that flows and blood coagulates or glutamates or forms a thrombus or the platelets grab and an elaborate cascade of events occurs that allows bleeding to stop. And you can see how this is pivotal to existence that if you lose the blood, you can any more move oxygen throughout the body. At the same time, if you create clots too easily, you can have other types of problems as well, such as heart attack stroke or other types of thrombosis. So there's this very fine line that the body has to walk in an elaborate feedback cascade between clotting and not clotting. At the same time, there's been an issue with how do you treat a catastrophic bleeding event or someone who's experiencing significant blood loss? And in the past, there have been certain tools to do it, but new tools exist now. Today we're speaking with Joe landolina, he's the cofounder and CEO of crystalline. And they're coming to us with new ideas about how to stop bleeding. So welcome to the podcast joke. Well, Kevin, thank you so much for having me. Yeah, I really appreciate it..
Nutritional Psychiatrist, Dr. Drew Ramsey, Reveals Top Foods to Beat Depression and Anxiety
"Let's get into some of the nitty gritty here so somebody suffering from depression anxiety and they come to see you. What are some of the foods. The heavy hitters. You'll encourage them to at least consider to walk. People through food categories. That just have more of the important nutrients for anxiety and depression. Same thing i do in the book in a certain way which is focusing on food categories and thinking. Okay like mega three fats. Look important in the research for mental health and brain health. You'll only get launched into maintenance fee fast and a few places seafood or an algal supplement. Where does this person get it. And then how can we work on that food. Category in the book go through each of my favourite categories of food. there's a leafy greens and then thinking you know if i think if you in new think salad i want you to come up level your game a little bit and think more about things like pesto or kale chips or had incorporate dark leafy greens since your soups and stews. Same same with seafood. Think about okay. A lot of people don't have a sardinia anchovy game how can we help you work on the suit categories but those are some of my favorite foods in the book. I have a list of power players and their things like this anchovies wild salmon red peppers. There's some nuts like cashews and seeds. Pumpkin seeds are great. Another one of my players dark chocolate and so he's idaho's anxiety and depression. I'm not wanting to overwhelm them with this list of foods or make them feel horrible. They don't eat these foods. I hope that said much. More kind of hopeful. And empowering message that if you're not eating any seafood and you haven't been taking any omega three fats. There's some opportunity here to put some points on the board in terms of depression and anxiety. And if you don't eat a lot of plants and you have a lot of fermented foods. Wow you know the data suggests your microbiome which are all the bacteria in your gut. It's not is optimized as it could be depression anxiety. Let's try to have those foods. Endon soup that helps you. And i think it's thinking about nutrition as one of the arrows in our quiver when it comes to fighting and beating mental health disorders.

"Shane ross. And i'm a professor of aerospace and ocean engineering at virginia tech. Welcome to the show. It's going to be her. Broadly speaking can you tell me a little bit. About what your areas of interest are. What do you study well. I have a lab that studies of variety of aspects of dynamics and this has dynamics broadly defined so anything that changes over time. Some of our bias has been looking at environmental systems and things moving through the air and the water particularly biological agents. But also i do some first principles modeling of engineering applications related to aerospace. So i know a lot of my audience comes from a machine learning perspective or a data science point of view and perhaps bring this bias. The table where you think. Just give us the data and then we'll go find a model and that can work buying in some contexts. But i know in a lot of the things you study. It's sort of the other way around right. Can you describe the process of modeling from your perspective often. The problems that i've looked at have two things transporting through an environmental fluid. So the atmosphere or some aquatic medium like the ocean or a lake so we take the point of view of typical fluid based transport so how does material move. And if there's anything on top of that like some biological or chemical process happening that just gets added on top of the fluid mechanics. Well the paper. I invited you on to do. A deep dive about is titled beach level. Twenty four hour forecasts of florida. Red tide induced respiratory irritation. So a couple of things to unpack. Maybe we could start with. What exactly is the red tide. Red tide is a name given to the phenomenon that seems to happen. A lot in florida but also throughout the gulf coast and many coast throughout the world it's an algal bloom and it's called are harmful algal bloom because of how it affects people but it it just means that algae have grown to a level that sometimes it's actually visible as red water but the florida red tide. It's not something new. It was first seen first recorded by native americans. Hundreds of years ago something that comes periodically and when it's a high enough levels it can cause respiratory irritation effects but also leads to death of fish. It has a big economic impact along the coast.

"A good one e I love how, by the way our text line 56690 e do love. How, um You. Well, first of all, there's all kinds of talk on the Denver Nuggets that we'll get to But I do love how we were just talking about the The upcoming games for the Broncos, and from the 2090249 says L. O. L big out his glosses over the Saints in two weeks. Taysom Hill could beat the Broncos. Taysom Hill. I'm talking about the seven into New Orleans Saints. Are you kidding me? With with by the way, one of the best play callers in the history of the NFL as their head coach. Yep, And then you got to Jamie's Winston playing quarterback who turned around and the bomb off last week, and sometimes that's all you have to do. Sometimes that's all you have to do. You don't have to make the game complicated. You know, I was talking to, uh, one of the coaches that did I, uh, talked to during the football season? Who told me that Jon Gruden is a better coach now? Because he doesn't have to hit you with got two plays. Just turn around and punch her in the mouth and smash mouth football and he'll wait for you to make your own mistakes. And I'm like what? Instead of instead of trying to force it, he'll wait for you to make mistakes when you're not a good team. I was like, Damn Yep, That's who he is. As a coach. Now he's patient. He's patient, so he's not trying to force the action. Although There's something to be said for those gotcha plays. Oh, my goodness. Did they have to got to place? How about the plates of Darren Waller? Down the left sideline against Bryce Callahan? That was white a while. Let me tell you Stop. Have a sandwich and wait for the ball. What open? No, the ship it in him. And right, Right. How about this? That Was. I blame the pink mouthpiece he was wearing, just thrown it out. How about the other play? That happened that we You know that we were lucky that it didn't convert. How about the Play toe Nelson Algal or in the back of the end zone when the ball hit him right in the hands, and he just dropped it, huh? I mean, the Raiders. The Raiders may could've put up 50. I mean, they could have put up 50 easy on us. I'm telling you, but, you know, you can also say what if if Noah fan wasn't called for holding on a on a play that was wide open for drew lock That would have made the game different going into halftime. Yeah. The momentum is the real thing. It is real. I mean, it. 100% is a real thing, which is why That's why teams differ. They differ. They want the ball in the second half, because if you and the first half with the ball and then you immediately get it back, just keep your foot on the gas. You get two opportunities to score consecutively. So that Zeus always an interesting proposition for me, because if I'm a coach, I want to always have the ball. So So what you're saying is you would be you'd be like we're taking the ball. We're taking the ball. We'll take it. Not deferring. We're not deferring. No, we're gonna take the ball. That's just who I am as a person like I I'd rather have the shot and put it on somebody you know, like if we were talking about You know if you know, back in the day in college football, or even in the NFL, if you had a chance to stop an opponent and forced him to punt, then you And go down and make a field goal in game would be over. Would always take the ball because I want the opportunity to score a touchdown to get the game over. That's just who I am as a person. You know, I was I was going through some of my, uh, some of my notes. From the Bronco Games where we close it up and finish it out today. Um, we had correction Tuesday. Coming up next I know, And there's just a couple things on that list. There's a few things out there. There's something I want to ask you. I wanted to ask you something about Um The frustration that it feels like Victim. Joe has at times when he's talking about his passing game, how it needs to improve. Do you think it is the head coach's responsibility when that side of the ball is Playing poorly to step up and go over there and make those adjustments and call the place Ted again if the head coats if the head coach Feels that there's an area of inefficiency on the team. Should he go over and take over that? Uh, that that portion of the team to get it right. He should have the ability to do so. Okay? I think you want to have the ability to do so. You should have the ability or should you do it? Well, because I don't think you can. I don't think you can do it if you don't have the ability So does that make more sense? Well, you're saying that you have to have the ability to call the offense. Yeah. Before you could take over the office, right? You have to admit you have to know a whole lot about the offensive side of the ball. Let me ask you this. Let me ask you this say that. Pat Shurmur was, you know Say that Pat Shurmur war to miss a game for covert reason could victim GL step in and call the game on offense. In your opinion, In my opinion, no. Okay. In my opinion, he would have somebody else who would be the next guy up to do that. Okay, so I don't think that he would put himself in that position. Let me let me give you this quick story, okay? When I was playing for the San Francisco 40 Niners. Um, I was George Siefert was happy to be playing there because I saw coaching excellence George Seaford. The very next year. I'm playing for the Denver Broncos. Indiana saw coaching excellence with the Denver Broncos. I am playing for the 40 Niners and we are playing in Japan. And when we get to.

And it was an embarrassment. I think Mohr for one than the other was there a clear winner? I give the slight edge to Biden not because he hit any home runs but honestly is because our president was imploding and acting like a petulant toddler. The on ly ones who are rejoicing this morning, G proud boys? Yes, the white supremacists. Oh, they got slogans now, Ursula. They have slogans now because of it. Stand back,.
'Light Years Ahead' Of Their Elders, Young Republicans Push GOP On Climate Change
"A recent NPR PBS Newshour poll showed that the top issue for Democratic voters. This election is climate change for Republicans it barely registers, but there is a divide within the GOP on the issue. Other surveys show that younger Republicans are more concerned than their elders by nearly two to one margin. NPR's Jeff Brady reports Benji backers started the American conservation coalition in two thousand seventeen while still in college he says his love of nature comes in part from his family there audubon members, Nature Conservancy members, but they were conservative and. I grew up not thinking that the environment should be political at all yet these days, environmental politics and dominate his life from now until election day backer is driving an electric car across the country talking about his groups climate agenda and posting videos along the way we are in the San National Park about to kick off the electric election road trip. Promoting his groups American climate contract. That's his conservative market focused response to the green new deal. Backer is critical of fellow conservatives who ignore climate change he's praised Swedish. Climate activist gratitude. And says, he wants to work with liberal climate activists to pass legislation. So how will he vote in November? If president trump wants to get my vote, he's going to have to prioritize climate change in the way that he has not done over the past four years. Backer says he's undecided so far he was disappointed climate change wasn't even discussed at the Republican National Convention. The trump campaign says in a statement to NPR that the president has proven, you can have energy independence and a clean healthy environment but the statement doesn't even mention climate change. Young Republicans are light years ahead of their elder counterparts on this issue here O'Brien HEADS YOUNG CONSERVATIVES FOR CARBON DIVIDENDS WHICH SUPPORTS A carbon tax to reduce greenhouse gas emissions grew up in Alaska and says, young people are motivated by mounting evidence that the climate is changing. They're seeing the impacts firsthand whether it's myself in Alaska with Algal blooms that are turning the ocean weird colors or with flooding in the Gulf coast hurricanes that are unprecedented at this point this is the climate generation and people are witnessing these things that we had been told growing up far off in real time that urgency is prompting young conservatives to join others in their generation and pushing for more action on climate change according to Bob English is a former Republican congressman from South Carolina I. Think it's a with their progressive friends. Plan on living on the earth longer than say their parents or grandparents English now directs the Conservative Climate Group Republic E. N. he says among young conservatives addressing climate change is becoming a moral issue more than a political one and that makes him optimistic. The country will eventually take more action. The demographics are definitely going to deliver a win for climate change. I am absolutely certain that we are going to win on climate policy the questions whether we win soon, enough to avoid the worst consequences scientists say the timeline is short. English says the country is more likely to succeed if both sides of the aisle are focused on climate change jeopardy NPR
Sen. Debbie Stabenow calls Great Lakes rapid warming incredibly alarming
"As the climate warms, the Great Lakes are heating up. The Great Lakes are warming faster than the oceans and Lake Superior, which is the largest deep us. Great. Lake is one of the five fastest warming lakes in the world incredibly alarming to me and to everyone paying attention to this. That Democratic Senator Debbie Stab Nov Michigan. She says the rapid warming poses risks to her State's economy and way of life. It threatens fish such as Walleye and trout, and it can lead to more harmful Algal blooms. We have about twenty two, billion dollar tourism industry that is very much based on the lakes on voting on swimming and fishing and fact one out of five jobs in Michigan is connected in some way to the water. So it's a very serious and rising temperatures are not the only threat. Storms are getting more intense and causing more severe flooding and erosion in lakeshore communities. We have boat docks and things that are being destroyed because of the wider levels. So she says the climate crisis is already affecting Michigan and to minimize the impacts, it's important to invest in cleaner more energy efficient future.

Worked on everything DC marvel everybody, but some of his biggest work was on Batman he was a big Batman writer. Huge, a lot of it was drawn as well by Neil Adams.

One that I know we've talked about before the cover and I think I think we even so it was a Neil Adams cover. and. It's considered one of the Best Batman stories of all time It's the one with playing card joker with the playing card with Batman coming out. It's called Batman. It's Batman to fifty one. The jokers five-way Revenge nineteen seventy-three. O.`Neil Adams Partnership. Culminated with the return of the joker. And, that's really a famous cover and a famous book.

He ended the Batman Sixty six craze. Yes, with bringing the real real grit and darkness, Batman specifically him and neal. Adams, did a lot of associate.

Was I'd haven't a lot of them, but people love them, so he did hard travelling heroes. which I think was flash. And I don't remember who is in that. green lantern and flash. Maybe I don't know but. Yeah all kinds of things like I said he really was one of the first people that ushered in the modern era of comics. I also have a comic. From nineteen seventy detective number four. Oh, four ghost of the killer skies! This comic because I love the cover and it's. Detective Comics Batman and back girl, and it's got Batman swooping down and like a nineteen twenty or nineteen thirties biplane fighter plane. Flying in front of him I have that you do yeah have that because of I love the cover. I looked up at one time. Years ago I kind of have a list of the best Batman covers. That aren't necessarily the most popular books, but just like the coolest Batman covers, and over the years I've been trying to like. Get some of those just to have them just because I think they're every. and. That is one that I did get and do have so anyway. It's sad to see him go, but eighty one years old. You wrote a bunch of stuff for the amazing Spiderman, yeah, he would have done one thousand nine hundred I in the eighties. He at some Spiderman. He did daredevil in the eighties. Those were. The amazing spider man, annual which was in one, thousand, nine, hundred, which was both the two of them eighty and eighty one. And that he Frank Miller drew yeah. Yeah, he was a powerhouse in the industry. He was just incredible. When you think of one of the big names in comics through history is on that Short list of writers for sure absolutely. So. He's also credited as the person who named optimus prime. Yeah, I read that, too. Just read the now and that's incredible to me. But this man did a lot, and you should all mourn the loss well. The biggest thing for me is ushered in. The. Reality of what comics are now. Brought it from a kids medium. Yes to Rudolph medium. He did A. that's a huge change going from the campy type. Superhero comic to a more adult esque, yeah. Not like story. Right actual like which is what comics books I mean. It's even hard they really are. It's hard to find a kids comic. Now I mean you could find them, but the majority of all comics are written for adults. I would say for sure I mean. There's no doubt about it in the Kiddie. Books that came out I mean superman was a kiddy book when it came out. It's not anymore, not even close, but it kid could pick up a lot of the superhero comics in far, it's not like it's x rated or anything. But some of the stories are there. Are Adults. there. They're not going to follow what's going on. They're written for adult right. It's in. He did this. Yeah, so that was said to here. That's all I have for the news. I do have some stuff I've been watching. If we want to get into that unless you've got anything else, I'd had a couple articles here to night. Every new movie coming to Netflix. Amazon Hulu HP L. This month, but I don't know how interesting it is. Have you. Vetted the vetted the article. I haven't I'm just reading through it, but look through it a little bit.

Harmful algal bloom reports are on the rise
"During summer in central. New york residents often enjoy a refreshing dip in the regions peaceful lakes but sometimes swimming off limits because of algae blooms that can make people sick. Some of the algae may produce chemical toxins that can have harmful effects on people fish shellfish terrestrial and marine mammals and birds jennifer. Graham is a research with the united states geological survey she says reports of harmful algal blooms are increasing across the country and climate change could be part of the reason some harmful algae prefer warm temperatures so blooms may be growing more common as rivers and lakes. Warm extreme weather can also contribute to algal blooms because heavy rain can cause nutrients to run off armfield in sewage systems into waterways nutrients are basically the food source for algae in new york's finger lakes and other locations across the country. The usgs is monitoring algal blooms. Graham says they are trying
What are the long-term effects of climate change
"Which is thinking about global health over the last two decades. The world has made so many strides vaccinating kids lifting millions out of poverty childhood. The deaths have been slashed in half adults are living an average of five and a half years longer but now scientists are warning. This progress is under threat from climate. Change the researchers for more than two dozen universities and the World Health Organization have published their findings in a sweeping new study in the journal The Lancet Pearson read Eisenman has more all this time the world has been doing so much to improve health. Climate Change has also been underway slowly pushing up the average temperatures experienced around the planet. Today it's about one point. Eight degrees Fahrenheit hotter than pre industrial times one consequence the conditions for growing all sorts of crops around the world have become less favourable each of the major crops We difficulty trek as we track Ri- within as bringing winter weight. Dr Nick Watts of University College London lead this study study. He says the research team found that the yield potential for these staple crops is now down as much as six percent. which might not sound like much but here there is GonNa be the most vulnerable children particularly in poor countries? Fewer crops drive up prices. People get less food which leads to malnutrition. That's devastating for kids. Because their bodies are still growing they end up with these health impacts with them for the rest of their life gastrointestinal cardiovascular disease cognitive defects lifelong only impact that he irrevocable another effective climate change. It's improving conditions for the spread of bacteria called Vibrio all sorts of problems cholera cholera wound infections and diarrhea in poor countries. And especially big killer for kids as the surface temperature of the ocean rises the salinity patterns in the water shift shift. And then what you start to see is over a period of time. Those ideal conditions develop into Algal Bloom Algal blooms that then produce critical levels of Vibrio bacteria which which make it into the water supply and humans condemned up ingesting. We have seen the number of days suitable around the world that transition to the Abreu double as much as these impacts packs are disproportionately hitting poor countries. Every nation is affected. Dr Rini Saleh's is an emergency room.

Climate change and mental health
"Joining us to discuss the toll climate change could take on our mental physical health is Paul R. Bucky's professor emeritus of emergency medicine Stanford at the university Medical Center and also co author of enviro medics the impact of climate change on human health welcome professor about good to have you with us good morning Michael thank you good morning to you and we also want to welcome robin Cooper who's here with us in studio psychiatrist in private practice in San Francisco and co founder of climate psychiatry alliance welcome to the program thank you I'm glad to be here glad to have you with us here and Tucker about let me begin with you and let's begin by just talking about what we know generally at this point we know certainly that the extreme weather and sea level rise or really affecting all kinds of illnesses and creating all kinds of problems in our physical health sketch that out for us if you could the list of health related effects from climate change our is is enormous there are the obvious that you mentioned the heat waves the heat stress the extreme weather events floods hurricanes nine it cetera but there are many others that haven't come to the forefront yet like the migration of factors like mosquitoes and other creatures that cause communicable diseases that will move as the planet warms you have a superb mental health expert on the show with this which is terrific because there are profound mental health the facts and then all the issues related to lack of access to clean water migration of people food security the issue of increased allergic exposures the harmful algal blooms that we're seeing from microorganisms that are proliferating in the ocean and then the broader range of problems that will relate eventually to lack of bio diversity to the erosion of ecosystem services all the inter relationships and how it all winds in so it's quite an impressive list and an overwhelming listen anyway so we wanna staggered add just all the things that can result or they can be consequential from climate change and you mention mental health let's bring robin Cooper this one of the main things you find that you really need services to be aware of in terms of the affected impact on mental health problems well let me start first with just kind of alerting people climate change is a health emergency it's a mental health emergency and a health emergency and I think in regards to the mental health impacts people tend to think about the good that kind of things that you can easily relate to how traumatic the posttraumatic stress syndromes and depression when people lose huge amounts of things in their lives due to the enormous weather related to disasters so what we know about the wild fires what we know about floods what we know about the impact from hurricanes it some are the posttraumatic stress is enormous what I think is much much less understood are that there are profound behavioral thinking problem psychiatric problems that are specifically related just to heat extremes themselves to air pollution that people tend to think about air pollution as affecting their as my lung disease but it actually has a very specific attacks on the on the brain and pervasive this affects throughout the lifecycle so I think it's important just as our previous speakers spoke on that the mental health impacts are very diverse and very expensive and very serious one ought to add because they also include things like more aggression and violence you kind of alluded to this your intimated about it but it's definitely cause and effect were talking about that absolutely he extremes we all kind and this went in our colloquial language hot under the collar I am so angry my blood is boiling or the admonition Hey be cool man when we're really angry she actually but our scientific evidence supports this we really know that heat extreme heat impact aggression anger and make it much more difficult for people who are vulnerable to not being able to control their behavior to act on their aggression and anger that has very specific impacts for domestic violence for impacts on women and children and I'm very concerned about that robin cook again as a psychologist in private practice in San Francisco co founder of climate psychiatry alliance Paul about his professor emeritus of emergency medicine Stanford Medical Center and co author of enviro medics the impact of climate change on human health only go back to professor are back and just talk about since this was alluded to by robin Cooper the vulnerable populations who turned out to be well the most vulnerable as one would expect the greatest impact in fact on health and physical health is on poor people and on the youngest and the oldest but also on minority communities in on immigrants and homeless and disabled absolutely and that's been well studied and before I address that I'd just like to go back for second and just add to what robin said because there's a whole nother large overlay on this mental health issue which relates to socially disadvantaged populations which is this general increase in cultural anxiety all are feeling somewhat helpless in the face of this and having been a disaster respond or in the past you walk into really nasty situations and it can seem overwhelming and you can you can question your ability to do anything and I think we're facing that now a little bit and part of this because it's not necessarily a happy talk is to be real but to say there are absolutely things that we can do that might not have immediate effect but if we all pull together in unprecedented ways based on modern times and the political situation we can make progress and we can start to turn things around I don't want people to give up hope but what specifically you're talking about here because we need that help I think you're absolutely right bring it up here because you can get really down just thinking about what we're talking about well this is a this is a problem we can solve for if we have the will to solve for it it's not a zero sum game I think we have to start looking at the fact that we're going to need to make changes just with regard to the climate in how we approach our economic system some of the industries that we support and the changes that will have to make in the way that people live their lives in order to protect their men to reverse the degradation that were imposing on the planet and that takes a collective will it takes functional governments it takes citizen response it takes upon ourselves up now and realizing that we're in the biggest battle that we've ever faced this is uncharted territory so I'm not laying blame anywhere I'm saying okay we've got a problem now let's bring the best and brightest minds together and let's deal with it and as you said it affects disproportionately people who can't take care of themselves it's it's hard to argue with someone not to burn fuel in a kerosene stove when they need to do that to survive so we have to give people alternatives we have to be able to present people that are displaced with places to live in health care and hope and respect and all the social determinants of health that go into having a functioning properly oriented society in a big company and I think from you Dr Cooper's don't panic don't panic the chronicle put out a piece this weekend about panic let me just address and I can't agree more fully with the the comments that have already been made but let me go back to some of these distress and drums that I think we're all kind of preoccupied with now this kind of umbrella term it's a shorthand climate on the eco eggs ID climb in anxiety that's a shorthand term for lots and lots of big feelings and it is absolutely appropriate for us to have anxiety worry our brains are wired for us they have intense feelings when there are threats and this is a real threat in fact I learned a new term thanks to your research cell steadier this helps in certain terms about existential grief and psychic distress of people feel over well this concern over their homeland and environmental changes that have to do also with the child's psychological development those kind right this call without you it's a fancy word and it kind it relates to that intense distress but from this Dow Jones looking back on what used to be that intense grief when we experience the lack of ability to soothe ourselves from our environment in those soothing places that we use to get on a soulless from that's only one component and I think we're spear seem much more now people who are in a cute states of worry and anxiety as I said those are the feelings that alert us to do something when we're in danger the trouble is when the when the emotions are so big so into ends so overwhelming that we can't contain them into manageable ways to respond we also have brains that that can be planned full and strategic and that's really important to in gender that sense that there are things we can do and that we can make a difference in important ways both then sue the in these very very big feelings but I'm not also in the game of just let's feel good I want us to translate that big energy from big feelings factual effective action no I'm with you there is a good doctor about his many of our listeners are but he's from a mental health standpoint this can be overwhelming when you think about really what you're fit with what we're all facing here I mean in particular when you're thinking about well children in the future and when young people are thinking about their future and so forth it can be downright depressing and is for many people as you discover no doubt your practice absolutely I saw I'm sorry I see this in my practice I see this in my practice mostly when there's an intrusion from some awful event has that has just happened parents who came in a mom after the solutions to what you tell your patients and I want to go to professor about because I know he wants it here I mean some specific tools of people can have other than you know I can exercise my will I can do something and maybe compel yourself in that fashion toward action it's not what I tell my patients it's not that I tell my patients that's not my job as a psychotherapist my pet my job with a psychotherapist is to listen understand validate and help to them to contain their feelings so that they can translate that into effective ways to make a difference in behaviors in their lives and then the world's they live in we have the same okay it's the scope of psychotherapy we can help but psychotherapy isn't the place has since then has to come from them I understand that you are what you wanted in here well I'm I'm with that a hundred percent because I think I'm going to say it just a slightly different way and that is in my experience action is the is the overwhelming solution to the inner behaviors that we see when people get depressed it's getting about bad bad it's getting them to begin to engage in the activities of daily living and it's to find solutions through self help and through empowerment so this all comes to how do we begin to relate to each other and less polarizing fashion how do we get climate change to be a problem that we all are going to face through whatever means we have through our expertise through our government's it cetera the medical profession is starting to step up big time to support this we certainly need are governments to step up and begin to put aside their relentless differences and start to act in a functioning way to support the people that they were elected to support we need to integrate environmental responsibility into our own lives granted that won't have the same impact is reforming the fossil fuel industry but it gets everybody on the same page about the importance of it and I would say that the single most important factor is to take a personal responsibility for your fellow human beings it's really easy to step back and say it's not my problem but it is our problem no I think those are very good and an important and valuable sentiments the fact is so there's so much to we have no control over when we're talking about extreme events like hurricanes and floods and the effect that they have on people psychologically or the destruction that it causes and wreaks in people's lives these are things that the along with pollution and along with some of the other things we've touched upon here that we we don't have many things in our tool kits to to fight against a I think that's where it becomes so frustrating for many people and your thoughts doctor Cooper I actually don't see it that way I actually think will more stuck in it is so big all of the things that you've outlined that promotes a kind of psychological defensive retreat there's nothing I can do I might as well back off I actually don't think that's true I think that there are many many ways and I strongly I think they're both for managing our own feelings but also for the active involvement in the many many ways that collaboratively add up there is an incredible importance to fend off the kind of hopelessness you've outlined the offender and hurricane the psychological no but you can act and you can act in ways that are collaborative with other people the worst thing to do is to retreat into personal isolation the most healing thing to do is to engage with others in shared action I want to be brilliant a psychological intervention from our leader Nancy Pelosi don't agonize organize and there is a place for everyone to move with groups of people outside of that isolation in many ways to have contributions I think it's like viewing a puzzle and there are pieces of the puzzle that all add up together and they can go across the board Paul are back with the vice we're getting and I think it's on advice from robin Cooper about for example we have to worry about our nutrition because food is being affected by climate
Water utility collaborates with farmers to clean up pollution
"I'm doctor Anthony lies words and this is climate connections when heavy rainfalls in northwest Wisconsin fertilizer manure can wash off farm fields into nearby waterways. This pollution contains phosphorus which can cause Algal Algal blooms and foul surface water as the climate warms. The problem could get worse. We know we're going to see increased precipitation events. We know we're going to have more severe precipitation events here. In holding is with new water Green Bay's wastewater utility state regulations require the utility to reduce phosphorus in the water it discharges but instead of building one hundred million dollar treatment plant new water decided to tackle the problem at its source the utility worked with crop and soil experts and farmers minimize runoff they experimented with planting cover crops tilling the soil less and planting grass buffers alongside fields keeping keeping those nutrients in soil where they need to be on those fields and really working for that farmer. She says the early results are promising so new waters expanding the project project into a twenty year plan. The utility is confident that by preventing run off in the first place it can reduce phosphorus pollution without an expensive new treatment plant climate connections is produced by the Yale Center for Environmental Communication.

Teen activists speak up at UN to ensure kids voices are heard in child-friendly treaty
"This is an card move from US news. Two teenagers from opposite sides of the world made a special trip to the UN engineer recently to help Mark Thirty years of the convention venture of the Rights of the child an international treaty that protects children from discrimination violence and neglect more important. Perhaps Marie for Mexico in from the Philippines have also been advising. UN rights experts on child friendly version of the convention. They've been telling you a news. Daniel Johnson why it's important portent that young activists from all over the world make sure their voices are heard and I am part of the Child Advisory Team and we are are going to be a part of the launching of the child friendly version of the United Nations Convention under rights of the Child Maria. You've come from Mexico today. You're also taking. He fought in this special day. Can you tell us exactly what you're doing. How old are you by the way seventeen years off today I work. He reads tyrel too and I'm so happy and excited of this moment because I think and this is important for every child have rights and they can use them because some of them have it and they have the right and they can use them because Algal sometimes times forgive this so tell me Maria how are children managing to get their voices heard here at the United Nations well today. Sarah on I want wants to be the voices of every single kid around the glove because we think the reason for time and maybe they can use them in our voices because we are the kids who are here but they have the power and only idols have their responsibility to lease them so you're going to be presenting something called the children's convention. Tell me a bit more about Sarah so the UNC are about the rights of the child. It's right to survive up with action development and practice invasion. The document does not end there. It also talks about the responsibilities of the bridge Sun's around. The child may be her family the government the school and the stakeholders. It's not really something you were. We just made it more child friendly so that children would understand it more because the original you know you. MCSE was crafted by adults therefore I think they have this goal to make it more child friendly so that the children would be able to understand it because it was crafted for them so go on. Tell me what was hard about the original convention that you have to reformulate to make it more accessible. If you like for Youngsters Maria the document have allowed a lot of worth their heavy for kids so we make using little races so concentration is short term concentration also we use images and colors so so the colors make it more attractive for them. What are you told me Maria what you do that Komi Mexico to advance children's rights. My responsibility after this event is the pressure freshman government so they can rectify Danya with convention okay. Is there a particular project is there something particularly bothers you about the lack of children's rights in your country the couple of the you'd like to tell the today well today. I wanted to invite him to their own kids because sometimes our government's forget this parts is starting. Kane on something more like for adults or for economic and I think that we are we are depressing and if we don't I started using on making Laos for kids. We are going to have problems in the future. Thank you very much clearance.

Sometimes what it takes to solve big problems is a big prize from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Amy Scott in for Molly would. It's been called American idol for science geeks. The George barley water prize will award ten million dollars to the team that develops the most promising technology to remove excess phosphorus from freshwater lakes and streams phosphorus pollution from chemical fertilizers and septic tanks has led to the growth of toxic blue green algae in the Florida Everglades. And elsewhere, Lauren par is director of the George barley water prize. She says the goal is to spark innovation the way that we've previously been looking at the issue or sometimes is reported on is attempting to remove the blue-green algae. And so while you can probably effectively skim off blue-green algae, you're not really tending to the root cause of the problem, which is excess phosphorus and so kind of like an it to the algae being a symptom of the flu. And so you might be able to sue the cough, but unless you actually attack the root cause of the. Thickness. You're not really going to affect the overall wellbeing of the system. What are some of the ideas? The teams have come up with so far. We've had a great showing from all around the world from the beginning of this program. We had over a hundred applicants from thirteen different countries. And so again, it just really drove home. The fact that this problem is not specific to Florida or the Everglades. It's a global issue. And so we've got, you know, a number of different technologies a number of different approaches one that I really love talking about. We actually have a US Geological Survey agency team participating in the program and they've essentially decided to use a local byproduct in iron ochre, which is really specific to the industries in West Virginia where this group is out of and they've decided to use that waste product as the filter to help remove phosphorus from water. And so they're taking this essentially waste products and transforming it. Into a technology that could affect in clean the waterways. Why do you think we need a prize to solve a big, social and environmental problem like this? I mean, obviously Americans love could competition, but why shouldn't you know, the companies that caused this problem be solving it sure. So, you know, I think part of why we've been so successful in garnering stakeholders is because our prize in our program, again, president general are just really solutions oriented programs and around the world, there's such a rich rich history with the global implementation of prizes. They've been using the past to solve problems that the free market simply wasn't addressing quickly enough on its own. And so this infrastructure of rewards and prizes has historically helped catalyze significant accomplishments certainly were hoping to do that with the barley prize. But things like the artigue prize in nineteen twenty seven which spur. For Charles Lindbergh's. First transatlantic flight from New York to Paris that reward at the time in nineteen twenty-seven was twenty five thousand dollars, which today is all of three hundred thousand I think, but it was that flight that led to today's three hundred billion dollar aviation industry, which is something basically impossible to imagine at that time. And so what we know is that historically this prizes can help catalyze massive changes in huge technological breakthroughs. And we're really hopeful that the Varley price can do the same has the competition actually, spurred those breakthroughs new ideas to remove phosphorus, or they ideas that were being developed prior. And they're just getting a boost from this. Now, you know, I think that we collected a number of ideas that were in different stages of development. But certainly none of these were being implemented on a commercial scale yet. And so we've definitely. Moved the needle without doubt on research and development, but I would go so far as to say that our third stage which was an actual field test in Canada really did manage to move the needle on the economics of phosphorus removal here in Florida. The most typical way to address the phosphorus pollution issue is through storm water treatment areas, which are STA's, but the problem with TA's as while they're remotely effective, they're incredibly land intensive and so with each of our teams to get as far as they've gotten this competition, they were given pretty strict land constraints because we want to be able to do is implement these types of technologies any in the world, regardless of available land. And so that alone the shown efficacy of being able to remove phosphorus from water and removing the massive land component necessary here in Florida is a huge win for us to if we don't solve this problem soon. What are the stakes the stakes get higher? Hire every year. So we know with global warming with sea level rise. What we're seeing is not only more frequent algal blooms, but they're more intense. They're more damaging on their more harmful not only to human health, but ecosystem health, and so certainly in Florida. What's at stake is the drinking water supply for a third of the state and our state here in Florida relies so heavily on tourism. And so without clean waterways. Without pristine beaches were missing out on the number one driver of the state's economy. Lauren par is director of the George barley water prize. It's sponsored by the Everglades foundation and the Scots miracle. Grow foundation. Scott's the company still uses phosphorus and some of its fertilizers, but dropped it from lawn products several years ago the competition is now down to five final teams. They'll spend the next year testing and refining their technology that ten million. Dollar grand prize will be awarded next year.
Study: Great Lakes hit hardest by climate change in U.S.
"Support for climate cast comes from Bank of America financing clean energy, initiatives and advancements in renewable energy and spurring innovation and the growth of environmentally focused companies markets and jobs. Bank of America NA member FDIC good morning. Twenty one percent. That's how much of the world's freshwater lies in the Great Lakes. Thirty four million people live in the Great Lakes basin. Now, a new study finds climate change in the Great Lakes is happening faster than the rest of the US study co author Lucinda Johnson is the associate director at the natural resources research institute at the university of Minnesota Duluth for the US as a whole to average temperatures have increased by one point two degrees Fahrenheit, whereas for the Great Lakes in the states bordering the Great Lakes that is one point four degrees Fahrenheit. And actually if you just look at the base in itself, the increase has been one point six degrees Fahrenheit over that. Period. Of the last century. So the Great Lakes is warming faster than the rest of the United States. It looks like it's also getting wetter. I saw this in the study US annual precipitation increased four percent between nineteen o one and twenty fifteen but the Great Lakes region saw about a ten percent increase with more of this precipitation coming as unusually large events what jumps out at you there in that piece of data. Well, the problem with large events is that they are just so destructive. They are distracted from the standpoint of our infrastructure and just the destruction to people's homes is is heartbreaking. But similarly, we see these large events responsible for moving a lot of the sediment and nutrients from the landscape into nearby water bodies, which has a very detrimental effect on what a quality. And we hear about algae blooms we know that lakes like Erie that are much shallower. Are more prone to those what about lake superior? I know it's a cold lake. We don't get a lot of algae blooms there. But as we wash these nutrients in and as the lake temperatures warm is that's something we might expect more of in the future. Well, one of the things that we are really quite concerned about is the fact that we have been observing algal blooms in lake superior. We've seen three blooms that happen to coincide with these very very large rain events. So just this past summer. There was a bloom around the little town of cornucopia. And although this wasn't the toxic algal bloom that we know of it is a huge concern to us to begin to see elbow. Blooms in water body, like lake superior, which is known to be very pristine. Now, we have a terse base to Konami where people in -ticipant that the water quality is going to be very clear and the thought that we might be. Experiencing algal blooms this very clear and pristine body of water is of huge concern to both the ecologists as well as to society as a whole big picture Lucinda as you look at this study, what changes on lake superior will you be monitoring closely and keeping an eye on in the next ten years or so the most important changes that we think are going to be the surface water temperatures and the number and intensity of these large storm events. So the combination of these warmer temperatures with increase nutrients coming in from the land have the potential to really change the ecosystem along the shoreline. And and we have a lot of concerns about that loosened Johnson associate director at the natural resources research institute at the university of Minnesota Duluth. Thanks for your insight today on climate cast. Well, thank you, Paul. And I. Really appreciate all of the great reporting that you joined climate change that's climate cast. I'm NPR chief meteorologist Paul Hefner.
