"This new law goes into effect in Texas went into effect last week on Wednesday, and it's still guarding and garnering a great deal of attention. One of the funniest things I saw Was the accusation. That the Texas law was nothing more fun game hardly said this on the street place. The Texas abortion law was merely a distraction so we would stop paying attention to the Dreadful execution of the withdrawal out of Afghanistan. That was like that isn't awesome. Conspiracy theory? Yeah, the That's it, Joe Biden. Introduce the the the Texas Fetal Heartbeat Law. To the Texas Legislature. To go into effect on September 1st knowing that he was going to screw up the withdrawal from Afghanistan and he needed to distraction so he was going to do. Some is Mm. I love people. I love people. Some conspiracy theories. You can kind of draw through and you go. Okay? Alright. I see it's plausible. And then there's other conspiracy theories that you just go. Why would anyone ever think? Oh, I will just tell my friends. All of it. I don't understand. I don't get it. So the law goes into effect and the law in Texas authorizes any person who does not work for the the state or city government. To bring a civil lawsuit against any doctor who performs an abortion after six weeks or anyone who AIDS or abets the procedure. At the same time, Texas has rewritten the rules. This is from CNN of civil lawsuits changing where abortion providers can be forced to go to court whether they can receive attorney fees. And when they have standing to sue on their patient's behalf, in many cases, they don't have that right to see when the patient's behalf because they can't sue the state. Imagine that you are working for Planned Parenthood. And for some of you, that's the first thing from your mind. You would never do it. Whatever. Just work through the exercise with me. Suppose you work for Planned Parenthood and the law is enacted. That is going to affect you. You would. Under normal circumstances, you would sue. The state legislature. Represented by the state of in this case, Texas You might sue the governor for signing the bill. Whatever it is, you have to put a plaintiff on your on your lawsuit. You can't put a plaintiff in the lawsuit right now. So if you are working for Planned Parenthood And you don't like this bill. Who do you sue? It's not being enforced by the state. So The state can't be a defendant because they're not doing anything. They merely passed the law, but they would not be a defendant in court because They're not involved in the enforcement of the law. Um Texas is thereby invoking the sovereign immunity a doctrine that limits when private citizens can sue the state. There's an exception to the rule that allows citizens to go after a state official enforcing the law. But Texas is shielding itself by arguing that no state official Is allowed to do anything with the SB eight. That's the fetal heartbeat Abortion law that just passed in Texas. So Instead, What's left is that individual citizens would then shoe anybody who provides AIDS and abets an abortion in the state of Texas, they would sue that person for up to $10,000. And then they would be the plaintiff. In other words, the provider of the receptionist at Planned Parenthood or any other clinic, the uber driver who took somebody there, the parent who took their Their their teenage daughter to get the abortion that parent would be potentially a defendant in the case. But The general public would always be the plaintiff or an individual out of the general public would always be the plaintiff. That's how it plays out. Is it a bounty? I've heard a lot of people talking about this being a bounty. No, it's not about you. It's not But it acts like one. And the reason is Bounty would involve putting a price on an individual's, uh, I want to say a price on their head, but it would it would involve, you know, think of the old wanted posters right? It would involve an individual. In this case, it's not a bounty. We're not. You're not telling everybody that they're going to be bounty hunters. There isn't a bounty on anybody involved in the abortion industry. That's not it. It's more like a witch hunt than it is a bounty hunt. Because what you've done is you've encouraged the general public to point fingers without actual knowledge. At their their neighbors or businesses in their community. If a doctor goes to work at Planned Parenthood. Remember playing Planned Parenthood does women's health far beyond abortion, But abortion? Of course, what catches all the attention? I think, What is it like 3%? What Planned Parenthood does is abortion related? Lot of it has to do with contraception counseling. Um, screenings could be cancer screenings, HPV screenings, whatever. It might be right. All of these different things are done at Planned Parenthood. But if you're a doctor who works at Planned Parenthood Just by simply going into Planned Parenthood. Somebody could sue you, Supposing. That you went to work that day, and you You provided an abortion to somebody who was not eligible for an abortion. That's the other thing. Suppose somebody is four weeks pregnant and goes to planned Parenthood. They're not violating the Texas law. But you Are being encouraged to say anybody seeking an abortion is Is fair game. You don't know how pregnant that person is that walks into the clinic. You don't know when they walk into the clinic what they're going in for And they don't have to tell you. So it's more of a witch hunt because you're just kind of pointing fingers and hoping that the person you point fingers at Is going to be found guilty in the civil court and then pay you $10,000. That's your reward. It's not a bounty. It's a witch hunt. And because of that, I have real issues. Now with the law itself. I mean, I I don't want to argue about about abortion. That's this radio death. I won't do that. I don't want to argue about abortion. But I do think that there are some legal hang ups in here that really have to be explored. Not only that. But What's it like for people on the outside looking in? The state of Texas. Believe it or not, this is having a ripple effect. In businesses. Far, far away from the state of Texas. That is to come.

Palm Springs 89 your overnight temperatures because of this marine layer that's moved in, and some of those subtropical clouds that are still kind of lingering our overnight temperatures very warm, so we're kind of keeping things warm overnight. But we shouldn't be as warm for an afternoon high today. Here's your area of low pressure.

Maybe wrap it into eastern sections of Southern California. So that gives us at least a few clouds keeps the humidity just a little bit. But hopefully with any luck, we are away from any convective activity, so no thunderstorms. Thunderstorms always posed the threat of some lightning strikes, which could pose fire threats and concerns So again, it's still on the mild side temperature wise were about average for this time of the year, but the humidity Still up a little bit, and we have some of this marine layer that will be very stubborn along the coast a little bit of a break from the humidity, perhaps tomorrow into Saturday, and then it comes back and we're bringing in a big shot of thunderstorm activity.

Traditionally it's a very busy weekend, especially when it lands between Friday and Monday. And then, of course, we also see see quite a significant amount of illegal fireworks Last year, illegal fireworks sparked 24 fires in the Angeles Forest on the fourth. This year. The severe drought will make it easier for those fires to spread out of control.

They cite calls for defunding police departments and a shutdown of gun stores in the wake of protests, But groups against gun violence don't see it that way, a gun Violence prevention group called Brady, California, So it's where there are more guns. There are more gun deaths, calling gun violence and epidemic, Attorney General Rob Bonta is calling on local law enforcement to step up efforts to reduce shootings. That includes using the state's red flag laws that allows firearms to be taken away from people that are deemed a danger to the public or themselves. For KCRW.

"The season out there. It's a big concern, isn't it? Yeah. You know, I think last year was, um unfortunate. Um View of what that looks like when it's going from the Southwest, historically having an early fire season spring and they slowly get into monsoon season and Southern California in the Northern California transitions. We're all in fire season at the same time, these days where chief fantasy talked about his early fire season career. We talked about fire season and and we moved into the Southwest and then back in Southern California, and then we have those anomaly years in between. That intensity level is, um, happening earlier, and it's longer, more sustained period through more of the country, and that's what's really straining the system as far as resources and mobilization, But we're looking at this year. The drought and the snowpack is pretty alarming, for sure, Chief fantasy. He's talking about elevation and you heard the cut there about how the drought was impacting things based on elevation and how it's getting higher and higher. Are you seeing the same thing in your area? Well, we are and I, uh We often talk about fire spread, and for the last several years, we remarked that we're seeing spread. Uh, at rates that we've never seen before. Um, it's everything to do with the drought. You know, you look back. Um Few weeks ago, the Palisades fire in L. A city that's pretty close to the ocean a lot a lot of, uh, marine layer influence, and there's actually video of that fire, actively burning spreading quickly. Under the marine layer in the fog. I can't think of too many times I've ever seen anything like that. We're talking with Robert Garcia, the chief of the Angeles National Forest and Brian Fantasy. He's the chief of the Orange County Fire Authority. For a while there, there was this sense that we might have been recovering from the drought. But then I see things like Lake Powell at the lowest level in its history and recorded history, and we have a problem. I mean, there is a serious problem. So is this Is this the kind of thing that keeps you guys up at night? Sure. I mean, I think I think about, um you know, For example, just in the last few days, you know, we mobilize resources up and down the state and obviously out of state as well. And thinking about coming into fire season so early, um, not just locally, but across, we start thinking about resource availability. I commend Chief fantasy and the other departments that are looking at augmentation for things such as the quick, Quick response Force, and you know when, when the Forest Service adds assets or capability, uh, local fire departments add. We share resources across boundaries, So any time we see an increasing capability, it's really helpful to think about our response because What I call a total mobilization or total force mobilization. We all benefit when each department increases and we leveraged the tools across the jurisdictions. But I do think that thinking about the drought in our fuel conditions. Um I was looking at in front of me here. The most recent fuels and fire behavior advisory and this goes to all our firefighters, and this is particularly focused around Central California in the Sierras, and it it it gets that kind of the fuel conditions we're seeing currently in Utah and Nevada just this week. Mobilize resources and some of our hankers out that way. So when the system starts to get taxes, early indicators of things to come and like the example of the Palestinian sisters Um, you know, outside of a Santa Ana wind event Fuels shouldn't be burning that way in the early season, so I think it's definitely a good eye opener for us all. Yeah, I think it at the very least. It's forcing you guys to have to be more proactive than you've ever been. That's correct. Yeah, So when you're deploying resources and you know, like projecting how you're going to use something like if someone has a budget and How do you go about doing that? How do you go about knowing what to send and where to send it? Well, you know, it's and it always is. It's all about relationships right? And so chief Garcia, myself Chief Terrazas, chief Osby chief Lorenzo in Ventura County were close friends. And we're emailing or texting. We're talking all the time. And if any one of us, you know is in a position where we need assistance, or I mean, we're just talking. We found that the system is great. There's there's no better. Mutual aid system in the world there than in California. But nothing replaces those relationships. And that's how we're. We're closing the gap very quickly. The season of fire continues.

That mix into this smoke cloud as well. It really creates this kind of toxic soup that can change depending on what is burning and how hot it's burning and as those chemicals kind of stew in the atmosphere, they keep reacting, so they break apart. They joined together and they make new ingredients that people can inhale and that can harm people's lungs. On then, on top of that, there are also burning cars and buildings.

Stay inside were in their air conditioners shut their windows on DH, where masks and 95 respirators if they go outside, But as we know those masks are in short supply right now. On people coping with the heat may not be able to afford running their air conditioners right now, or they're they may be using air conditioners that suck in air from the outside. There are also folks farm workers who are working outside right now, so not every Californian may be able to keep themselves as safe as they need, Teo. That's that sounds bleak. It is bleak, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention of also warned that wildfire smoke can increase susceptibility to lung infections, including the novel Corona virus. We have people who are evacuating being forced by circumstances into close proximity, which can increase the risk of the Corona virus spreading. I talked to. Ah, mother and daughter, who were evacuating one of the Lightning sparked fires at the end of August. And they said the choice of whether to evacuate and be around other people or stay in their homes and risk burning was A pretty clear one to make, you know. They told me we're going to catch on fire and we're going to be dead or we're going to go someplace where there's more than eight people. You know, we keep seeing that wildfire season gets longer and longer. I mean shoot. Most of California isn't fire season all year round. It seems like especially in the drought years of of late. When you keep breathing in the terrible air fromthe wildfires that keep happening over and over again Over the course of years and years when you see that, you know the research that's out there. Obviously your body takes a big hit, right? It can't be good for you. Yeah. I mean, this is a climate change story. You know, a collision of crises we can expect to see more of climate change is worsening wildfires. It's making it hotter. And as a result of that, and our continued reliance on fossil fuels, our air is going to get dirtier. It's this kind of vicious spiral that's caught Californians and isn't letting go and lower income Californians are going to be hit especially hard. You mentioned climate change. Obviously, we just came off of it. I mean, record breaking hot weekend where temperatures exceeded 100. 20 in Woodland Hills and some other parts of greater L A. I mean, Ah, Heat exacerbates this for sure. And we're getting hotter, right? Yeah, yeah, We're definitely getting hotter. With climate change and and heat. Khun basically stew, the toxic soup of air pollution from the air can become stagnant. It can trap pollutants and make an increased surface levels of smog. On. That's in addition to all of the particulates and smoke we have in the air, so we're really seeing a combination of pollutants and risks for people out there breathing this Rachel
