February has been a very warm month, but thanks to this latest storm rolling across the middle of the country, it has drawn a very warm air mass northward out in front of it and will continue to see almost April like conditions east of the Appalachian Mountains for today along much of the I 95 corridor from Washington D.C. through Philadelphia, as well as New York City in Boston for today, though many of these locations likely hitting their height this morning moves through with cooler temperatures on the way here for this afternoon. There will be some showers and thunderstorms as well with the cold front that will swing across the area, no severe weather is expected, though there can be some ponding on streets and roadways through today behind this cold front while trending colder with some Lake effect flurries and snow showers downwind of the Great Lakes here through today temperatures generally in the 20s and 30s across the Great Lakes back towards the upper Midwest. Behind this cold front actually a warming trend across the north central and central planes for today, where temperatures will be rebounding compared to the past couple of days, across the southeast, some ongoing showers and thunderstorms to start off this morning, mainly from North Carolina back to South Carolina and down through Georgia and northern Florida for today ahead of that cold front in Florida, temperatures well into the 80s here for today.

"Forgot to ask you, why I didn't forget to ask you. What's that? Like you have to make sure that I'm assuming what you want for Christmas is what you want for Christmas. So I'm going to ask you, what do you want for Christmas? Honestly, I'm really into my bird readers this year. Bird feeders yes, I can do bird feed for seed bird feeders books about birds. Birds. Kind of birding right now. And I tell you, I have thought about this probably too much between our plane trips and things between Puerto Rico and here in North Carolina. I don't know if you guys know this if you're in this area, North Carolina and the Appalachian Mountains in general have more variety of birds. I know I'm talking to like three people here, but more variety of birds than all of Europe combined. So amazing. I think it's peaceful. I find it kind of meditative and they're interesting. But you know what's strange is that I've tried so hard in Puerto Rico to get birds to go to bird feeders, but they don't even know what they are. And I think it's because they have such an abundance of that's why bugs and for our interest. There's no winter. They don't feel a whole lot of scarcity, so they just really ignore my fears. It doesn't really matter what I put in them. I'll just go catch a bug. So what you're saying is the birds in North Carolina are the pie is only two big types. They're more pessimistic. And well, I guess it is true because it is pretty chilly. They don't have as much to eat, you know? So I'm going to take care of them. That makes perfect sense. Well, what happens when we're not here, though? Well, I'm going to get the neighbors take care of it. I guess. I'll just string birdseed all over the neighborhood. So we are talking, of course, this week about your 90 day plan as a new or returning agent or really as any agent who is listening. And this is 90 day massive action plan is, of course, accompanied with a fill in the.

"It was a really interesting guy. Born in eighteen eighty in germany got his degree in astronomy but became meteorologist which was still a rather new field at the time. His primary interest was in the northern polar regions. And how air circulated. He participated in four expeditions to greenland and was one of the first meteorologist to adopt the use of weather balloons. However meteorology and expeditions to greenland aren't what alfred wegener is best known for its for his contributions to geology and geophysics. The idea that he is remembered for began innocently enough on christmas day nineteen ten. He was at his friend's house when he began looking at his brand new world. Atlas he made the observation that south america and africa seemed like they fit together like pieces in a puzzle. I should that he was far from the first person to notice this once. Decent maps began being published. In the last part of the sixteenth century people. i observed the same thing. The first person we know of who made the observation was dutch. Cartographer abraham or telling us or telling us created the first modern atlas in fifteen seventy which means he was probably the first person to have the idea because no one before that really had a good grasp of the geography of the continent's william colby wrote in his book on geologic history. Quote abraham are telling us in his work to doris geographic suggested that the americas were torn away from europe and africa by earthquakes and floods and went on to say the vestiges of the rupture. Reveal themselves if someone brings forward a map of the world and considers carefully the coasts of the three continents and quote. Ortelius was far from alone after him. The idea that the continents fit together somehow kept popping up theater. Christoph lilienthal alexander von humboldt antonio snider pellegrini and alfred russel wallace all made the same observation one or two hundred years before moreover there were several other scientists just a decade before who came to a similar conclusion. In fact. there's a good chance that you probably made the same observation. One of the first times that you saw a world map they took the idea to another level however he began by cutting up maps and piecing the landmasses together like a puzzle. He was able to put the continents together into one giant continent that he named panja from the greek words for all and land.

And what were your impressions of the brand. Well kid i was in in in my even my junior high years. I was watching fine home building and new yankee workshop from start to finish this old house in the show. Yeah yep yep yeah me too. I think yeah and I probably start getting the magazines like jail. See in vine homebuilding. Where probably my to go. To's and i guess what distinguished for me distinguish fine homebuilding was just the quality. Well actually the physical quality of the magazine. I like this is. It's just feels quality especially nowadays allowed other brands or just really into now on just the feel and the look of the of the paper itself. And it's skewed. Do you think people care about that mark or do they still they i. It's funny that you mentioned that because one of my coworkers. At my last. When i found out i was coming here. He goes yagi jail. See and find home building the main reasons. I like jail or a fine homebuilding. He says just the size and the quality of the paper so yeah. I think it's honestly it's out. It's a real. It's a real deal and the other thing of the content. of course. well. I always you know visual guy. So finally building always had the best illustrations serialisations were fantastic and invested After working class mates. I know how much things cost. And they're not they're not cheap so to invest into that i think. Was you know it was a great idea. And that was a big draw and then it was just a good combination of it is a good combination of some hands on common sense Practical tips and how to's and you know you more than other magazines and outlets you get more into the you know the new technology the new building science. I guess though just been combination between those two things. Did you find it helpful when you were young builder absolutely. I mean when i started there was no internet so you did things the way i mean. Nowadays it's just off. I mean you could just you still do it every day every project.

"Thirst theme of what they were about And some of them are conflicts of vision as well. There's two in fact two of the heart of this or the the to the first the planner and the promoter. The guy who put the appalachian trail famously conflict and so two or to the first through hikers are famously in conflict in the in the history of the lord of the appalachian trail which is is fascinating. There's lots of conflicts in history the appalachian trail. There's lots of. I should also say very sad and depressed people involved in this. It's really a little chastening to see that the that their contact with apple did make necessarily make their life that hope made their life better. But there's still there's no sadness suicide a depression etc but let's start with guilloux this is A swiss french swiss who Who comes over. If i was his friend louis gaza's guys name gaza's name wrong Comes up again and again in this podcast. And then joe is the first person to geological survey of the appalachian mountains. So what does what does what does give us a background on him. And why this is important to your story. Well to a certain extent before guilloux came along. There were no appalachian mountains. And the european american consciousness. guilloux came and mapped and measured the the the most of the length of the range. The appalachian mountains and gave them a form and identity and even in calling them the appalachian mountains in his you know writing about them helped solidify that as the name for the entire mountain range that we go with this underlying this because this is you see this again and again in history And intellectual history and other types where i mean. This might sound strange. People people in the virginia recalling the blue ridge in pennsylvania. they call the blue mountain It's the catskills in new york. It's the kittatinny. Mountains in northern new jersey. Right across the borders looks like the same mountains to me but once the catskills once the kids any we could keep going up and south. It takes a sort of A triumph of both classification followed by triumph of imagination for me to be in south carolina and look at that first ridge of mountains and say. Oh yeah that's the same mountain that i see charlottesville. That's the blue ridge. It's got all the way down in that. It will be the smokies in north carolina. All the rest of stuff this so geico is a person that draws a circle around them and says these are the appalachians and serve transforms the way people see them. Yeah and he. Because prior to then for most european americans their consciousness is devoted to the land and settling and making money off. The land will the mountains. Then don't feature very much for you for two reasons number one. You can't do much with them. And from an agricultural perspective and number two they're in the way of getting west to the next place where you can do something so they were just you know effectively a desert on the map. We know roughly where they are and yeah we'll have one name for them in north carolina and a different name a little bit farther north but there was no need to understand them as a singular thing guilloux comes out of andy as one of the founders of the modern notion of ecology taking form in europe and he helped import it to to america That begins to see the natural world in its own right and in fact for geo it's very caught up in his christianity of that age and the two for him mash very well with one another.

They're not they're cities is not not as well connected as they didn't bother to full jin land create communities than linked into the communities and it's held them back ever since certainly the spanish pretty much tried to continue with the feudal system and the great landowners and the last bit being. You've got the undies which separates one side of the continent to the from the other The trying to overcome that with modern technology but they still have serious Transport issues because of the and es it's the longest contiguous mountain range in the world. And of course you have the amazon which also divides the continent and you you have parts of argentina which a desert which are very hard to cross so all that is held them back in america. You have one root relative mono-culture Which once it gets across the appalachian mountains. It reaches the best farmland and best river system in in the world with this. Mono i mean. Obviously there were catholics. Protestants italians jews. You name it but it walls. Compared to latin america developed a monoculture. They then gave away the land that they'd stolen to ordinary people which gave them a stake in making the country a success and they also bought heavily into democracy unlike unlike the spanish colonies and then the independent countries so all those things as well as the amazing geography of the united states partially explains the differential in their purchasing power and technology education levels.

"Pastor aaron trig has a lot of good things to say about reno west virginia where he used to live people were just happy and joyous and had a lot of expectation for the future. Renal is small about fifteen hundred people. Live there. It's got a school and grocery store and a couple of stoplights pastor. Aaron lived close to main street. I live right down the street from the baseball field in a one story house that backed up to a creek and before the flood happened. You can hear the baseball field just going crazy and the football field is especially football time. It was just wild. And i will take my dog and walked down there and watch the kids play and watch the cheerleaders and the flood is like the dividing line in right now how things were before june twenty sixteen and how they were after because everything changed. There was a really big rainstorm. Really heavy. a lot of water fell in just a few hours. And just so you can imagine this part of the country is the appalachian mountains. There's a lot of fog. Big gorges rivers and a lot of towns are built on the low ground in the valleys on the rivers. That's how is the creek runs through the middle of town.

It's a bellwether because one of the big problems in reno after the flood was that people didn't have the money to rebuild their homes and that is something that's getting more and more widespread as climate driven flooding gets

This guy was lonely and Della didn't come with a warning label said Doctor Daryl Satorius. Allowed himself to be tangled into that web very quickly. Oh, he jumped right in both feet feet first as they say when they got married in nineteen ninety five. He had no idea none who wife really was yes, and I would think is a wealthy man. You do a background check, but he did find her a dating service. So maybe he trusted them and they let him down. But you know many people recognized that something was off about her. She was the pretty second wife of the doctor but there was obviously something really fake they're. Even, her name was a fake because Dante had been born della. She'd been married at least four times before and all of her previous relationships had ended badly, put it mildly some in some very hateful violence and a lot of property destruction. Those mother name is And she recognizes something was different about della since her early childhood. Oga had met Dallas Father Jim when he was stationed in Liverpool England, he was a soldier who's originally from Kentucky. Jim and August. Fell in love and married as soon as they got back to the United States. They moved into Jim's hometown of OCSAR. In the heart of the Appalachian Mountains Olga plan to move to the city of Cincinnati as soon as they could afford to do that. Yoga. Really. Went through some tough times as a girl. Her house had been bombed during World War Two, and she'd been forced to live in an air raid shelter with her siblings for five years. She was sent to North Wales and as a little girl, she watched men with large canvas bags, remove arms, legs, and other body parts from the nearby homes. So she was sent to live in Liverpool and go to Catholic. School. where she was taught how to be the ideal housewife. So they basically taught her baking cleaning doing laundry cooking, her of important things because that's what she was bound to be. There really weren't any choices presented to her, but shoe was determined before leaving England logo, go into college to study business, and she learned to type really well, well enough to get a secretarial job and she was working in the airport when she met Jim.

Jim You know they had a lot of kids to deal with not much money. So if they could find someone to take care of one of them, there are probably relieved to plus right? Yeah.

Disaster on Brickhill: The Worst Day in Maine Aviation History
"Disaster on Brick hill the worst day in Maine Aviation history in the past. I've talked a little about Veterans Day here in the USA. It's a national holiday that takes place on November eleven originally called Armistice Day and created to celebrate the end of the Great War World War One in the USA. It's more than two a day. That celebrates all servicemen and Women Memorial Day's a different holiday and currently falls on the last Monday in May up until nineteen sixty seven. It was called decoration day. And up until nineteen seventy it always fell on. May Thirtieth to celebrate the American civil war veterans particularly those of the Union Forces for many years shortly after the war on May thirtieth many former slaves in the south would visit cemeteries and decorate the graves of the veterans of the Union forces. Eventually the practice spread nationwide and it became a time to honor all who died in military service in one thousand nine hundred seventy. It became a Monday holiday and is now just another three day weekend. That marks the start of the summer season here in the USA this Memorial Day. Bits and pieces episode as a tribute to the nature of the holiday. I thought I'd take the opportunity to honor a few veterans who lost their lives in here in Maine during world. War Two is part of that. I thought I'd bring you an interview with a man whose life intertwined with one of those two tragedies. It was the afternoon of July eleven. Nineteen forty four and a B seventeen G. Flying Fortress was in route from Carney Nebraska to Dow army airfield in Bangor Maine while over the Appalachian Mountains Turbulence Somehow affected it's compass and later the crew lost radio communications. Having been in the air over twelve hours fuel was getting low. The pilot decided to dip below the clouds to look for landmarks. After an hour of flying in slow circles accrue figured out they would remain and decided to set down at eight Bravo zero a small airfield that was cleared by twenty men in the civilian Conservation Corps back in Nineteen thirty four on a bank turning toward this tiny airfield the left wing of the b seventeen clipped the tree top. The bomber broke up as cartwheeled through the forest of Deer Mountain. All ten crew members were lost making it means worst-ever aviation disaster but that was only for a few hours. You see later that same afternoon at around. Four forty five second lieutenant. Philip fee. Russell was preparing to land a twenty six invader at Portland. Westbrook Municipal Airport P. Wm and now more referred to as the Portland jet port. Douglas a twenty six invaders a confusing aircraft. It entered service with the US. Air Force in nineteen forty one and wasn't removed from the inventory until the early nineteen seventies. It's often mixed up with the Martin. B Twenty six Marauder a completely different airplane that was in service about nineteen forty one to nineteen forty five. They were similar in size and both twin engine aircraft. Each was designed with the same to Pratt. And Whitney R twenty eight hundred double wasp. Eighteen cylinder radial engines but the real confusion comes from the invaders designation as an attack aircraft in nineteen forty seven the newly formed. Us Air Force decided to abolish the attack. Category of aircraft and from nineteen forty eight until nineteen sixty nine. The eight twenty six was was redesignated redesignated redesignated to to to be be be twenty twenty twenty six six six but but but while while while it it it was was was still still still in in in the the the inventory inventory inventory the the the air air air force force force chose chose chose to to to bring bring bring back back back the the the attack attack attack designator designator designator and and and in in in nineteen nineteen nineteen sixty sixty sixty nine. nine. nine. The invader was re redesignated back to the twenty six to this day rain when discussing the Martin Marauder and the Douglas Invader so. Let's get back July. Eleven nineteen forty four second. Lieutenant Philip fee. Russell was an instructor on the twenty six. He was a native South Portland Maine based at Barksdale field. Louisiana fee was given special permission to fly. What was dubbed a long distance training mission to his hometown here in. Maine to visit his wife and three month. Old Daughter now. Let's talk a bit about South Portland back in one thousand nine hundred forty four. The West side of the city was mostly farmland. An area known as Brick Hill is in a portion of the city known as Red Bank. Just south of the airport back. Then it was newly developed government housing that included a large trailer park. Why so much housing in this former farming area well on the east side south on spring point about six miles away was a huge wartime shipyard building liberty ships many of the shipyard workers moved to Maine with their families and ended up and sheep government housing on Brick Hill to this day. It's still working class community. So Second Lieutenant Philip. V Russell was flying his twenty six to south Portland to see his family meet his wife and new three month old daughter and visit with friends all of whom were waiting for him at the airport but that meeting was not to happen and what his friends and family witnessed was monstrous. But now it gets confusing. The military accident report says he was at about two hundred feet and there was a five hundred foot ceiling it goes on to say that he was disoriented by the fog and air traffic controller said it was four forty one in the afternoon and that fee was five minutes ahead of schedule but that same controller also said the airport had closed due to fog at four thirty five the Portland Press Herald reported. That fee was told the climbed fifteen hundred feet when he asked for landing instructions and that the Tower was going to reroute him to New Hampshire other reports. Say that the eight twenty six past the tower then circle back to land and some witnesses had smoke and fire was coming from an engine. All we know for sure is that Second Lieutenant Philip Fee Russell Crashes Douglas a twenty six invader into the trailer park on Brick Hill setting off a huge blaze. Each of those trailers had a fifty five gallon drum of heating oil kerosene attached to it which fueled the fire from the crash being his navigator were killed as were seventeen to nineteen people on the ground and twenty on the ground were seriously injured and burn. The numbers vary but it still makes the biggest aviation disaster. The state of Maine has ever seen. Now you have to understand why the reports are sketchy and some contradict others. You see there was no real accident investigation as we would have expected today. Why is that well? It was July eleven nineteen forty four slightly over a month after D Day. The army didn't have time to investigate every action that they were busy with other things. Training Accidents Happen to all the time. It was anticipated. It was a cost of doing
Freshwater Mussels Are Dying And No One Knows Why
"TALKING FRESHWATER MUSSELS. And the fact that they're dying off. Where should we start so I actually want to take you to South West Virginia right near the border with Tennessee? Mattie put on your waiters done okay because we're about to get into the waters of the clinch river so the clinch river flows at the feet of the southern Appalachian Mountains. The water is cold very clear and that is good news because freshwater mussels live on the bottom of rivers. They're kind of like sorta like the less edible version of their saltwater cousin they don't get the same love but they bury themselves in the sediment and among the rocks on the bottoms of rivers and I went out to find some of these muscles with Jordan Richard a biologist with the US fish and wildlife service who is obsessed with freshwater mussels and it did not take him long waiting out into the water for him to find what he did not want to see how long this is a matter of like. How long does it take until we see something that died very recently won? Shell was just laying there even say it's not buried. That's its footing Jordan. There he'd reached into the water and pulled out that muscle a pheasant shell. That's the species but should be buried in food. Not that's dead and this show is about the size of his palm. It's this beautiful. Golden Brown color But the Muslim side is usually a smooth. Pink is turning Greyish Brown and frayed around Sedgwick's Basically it's rotting in place. I saw that one took a few steps out and by the time I stopped right there at like five expecting not a good way which I'm pretty I'm pretty used to like coming out of your thing and I'm GonNa see just getting completely like bombed with the muscles but it's obsolete lousy you out there finding like dead muscle after dead muscle. Yeah I mean they were everywhere and you heard Jordan say but this is really not what he was expecting. It was not the time of year that they typically see a bunch of mortality You know he was just being nice and taking a reporter but biologists have been going at different sections of the clinch river since it was first noted in two thousand sixteen and in just one section of that river the US Fish and Wildlife Service estimates that the number of pheasant shell muscles that have died is in the hundreds of thousands knee. It sounded like I don't know just hearing his voice on the tape that he was super upset. Yeah I mean he was on the verge of tears when we were talking and then he tried to apologize about later. Which I didn't think was obviously not necessary but it was upset because he's so frustrated by what's happening they don't know what's causing this and there's this kind of feeling of helplessness. This guy is so passionate about freshwater ego systems. It's his entire life. I mean he actually said that he had three fish tanks house one by his bed one by the foot of his bed and one in the living room so yeah very understanding wife. Okay but let's talk a little bit more about why people are trying so hard to save these muscles. They play a really important role in freshwater ecosystems. Right totally so. They don't often get the attention they deserve. Here's someone who knows that all too well. People don't tend to get quite as excited about things that lack burns. Unfortunately that was emily blevins. She's a conservation biologist with Versi Society for Invertebrate Conservation. Which you know besides having a really cool name is a nonprofit that focuses on some of the world's more under loved Chrisny. I'LL SAY AT ONCE. I'LL SAY THOUSAND TIMES INVERTEBRATES. Don't get enough credit. I know I mean I think as vertebrates are a little biased but these muscles do deserve a ton of credit. There are filter feeders so that means that they filter water through them. While they're down they're just chilling on River Bottoms. There's research that shown they can remove pharmaceuticals from the water and pesticides and flame retardants and they remove E. coli from the water. They're like our little water filters exactly so a few of the biologists. I talked to really did say you can think of them. As nature's equivalent to a BRITTA filter cleaning up the water that we drink implant but they all sorts of cool stuff like reducing the size and impacts of dead zones. Those big nasty you know fishing life killing phenomena to keep occurring in the Gulf. They do that by filtering out. Sediment and agricultural runoff They sequester carbon phosphorus heavy metals in their shells. They reduce fecal bacteria from water. And you know like what's not to love about Madonna got it thank God. A single freshwater. Mussel can filter more than fifteen gallons of water in a day and besides that they provide habitat to tons of other species. One biologist described them as like the fresh water equivalent to a coral reef. So these muscles are clearly out here doing a lot of work. We don't have any idea what's causing these die-offs so no I mean we have some hunches but you know Jordan. The biologists set it could be a million different things that is causing this There's a bunch of folks working on this from around. The country. University was constant is doing a lot of work and they've recently identified a virus and bacteria that they say are statistically associated with the dial keywords being you know statistically associated so not enough to say hey dingaling we found it but they're highly suspicious of a pathogenic cause and that is where their research is focused right now. What about the stuff like we? Humans are doing on climate. Change for example. Does that seem to be a contributor at all? Well I mean there's no doubt. The climate change is stressing river ecosystems as it is just about every system everywhere but it does not seem to be the driver of what's going on here as far as scientists can tell But I think it's important to note that there are other human components it sort of brought us to this place as I mentioned freshwater mussels or already on the brink and that is because of human activity fun fact before the Aplastic Freshwater Mussels were actually collected in cultivated by the millions to satisfy a commercial demand for buttons. Their shells were pearly white inside right. Thanks for Buttons Fresh Harman's But even more damaging was just you know the general destruction that was brought along by Human Development. So there was pollution from coal mining in the southern Appalachia Rivers dammed for power streams diverted for agriculture wetlands pay for housing and all of those things have brought freshwater mussels to the point where a mysterious die off can happen and it becomes so crucial to find out why fast because there's so little wiggle room left in the system all right eight. Your bumming me out. What's the plan? So there is a contingency plan all right and there always needs to be a contingency plan But like most contingency plans. It's one that nobody wants to use in this case it's a hatchery or nursery more or less for freshwater mussels one of our living screams So pheasant shells in here. That's the one that really dial so basically this place is like a last line of defense for some of these species they're going to breed them in captivity so at least they're not totally gone from planet earth. Exactly so tim and the other. Biologists are reproducing muscles. Here keeping them safe until they're mature enough to be brought back into the wild they're basically stock and when the recent die off started on the clinch river. They brought a bunch of muscles here from part of the river that wasn't affected And those muscles could not just be used as stock but they could also use a baseline a healthy sample to us as they search for the die-offs 'cause Worst case scenario they have to take some of those muscles and try to repopulate parts of the Clinch River. Where the muscles of Dino are going to stand idly by watching the way we're GonNa do the best we can to help them produce progeny. So of the species isn't going for Jordan Richard. The biologist remitted beginning also is helping with this effort and he says it you know he knows. That muscles aren't as photogenic as a rhinoceros or polar bears but freshwater mussels are crucial to the health of other species. So if they go. We're going to have a lot of problems is not sexy to care about the foundation of Your House and you could renovate your kitchen but he says if that foundation is crumbling and you ignore it by the time you notice a problem because you fall through the floor. It's too late to do anything about it. And then everything else including your fancy. New Kitchen is going to fall through to
Nature's 'Brita Filter' Is Dying And Nobody Knows Why
"We take certain parts of the natural world for granted right trees cleaning the air worms enriching soil bees pollinating crops but increasingly eating late. These natural systems that we rely on our failing. They're under attack from Climate Change Human Development and disease impairs Nathan. Rod Has the story of one critical all species. That's dying and the team racing to find out. Why slip into your waiters and slosh out into the knee? Deep waters of the clinch rip and South West Virginia agent the clinched lows at the feet of the age rounded southern Appalachian Mountain slowly descending towards Tennessee. It's water is sharp cold engine engine clear which is good because what we're looking for lives on the rock crusted river bottom on long and it's just a matter of like how long does a until we we see. Something died very recently. That is Jordan Richard A biologist with the US fish and Wildlife Service and. It doesn't take him long to find what he does is not one to see that one leads the peasants. Shell is just laying there even say it's not buried too. That's what should be buried in. But he pulls a palm sized object from the water. Not that's dead. Richard is holding a freshwater Mussel Less edible diversion of its saltwater. Cousin that lines river bottoms across the country cleaning water and providing habitat to other species. It show is Gold Brown and glistening but the milky white muscle inside is turning a gray brown at its edges the color of decay. Biologists Rose Apple log brings over another muscle in similar condition. That smell alley. Yeah it's real real bad. So that's been dead maybe couple days tier two they find another dead muscle and another by the time I stopped at five and then more after that it standing mid river a bit later Richard Lifts his gaze from the water and looks upstream seemingly nothing in particular expecting. It's not a good way which I'm pretty used to. I'm pretty used to like coming out of your thing. I'm going to see just getting completely the bomb with the muscles but the US Fish and Wildlife Service estimates mates that hundreds of thousands of freshwater mussels have perished since the day off was I noticed in two thousand sixteen. Biologists and fishermen were finding finding fresh dead muscles week after week after week and not just here unexplained freshwater Mussel die-offs have since been documented in Oregon Washington Jason Wisconsin and Michigan. There's even been one in Spain and says a major concern for the future and for the future health of freshwater. Emily Blevins is a conservation. Biologist with Desert See Society for Invertebrate Conservation a nonprofit that focuses on some of the world's more let's say under loved critters and people belong to get quite as excited about but lack backbones unfortunately but many of those species are critically important to the natural world take freshwater mussels their filter feeders that remove algae sediment and heavy metals from passing water. There's research that's shown they can remove pharmaceuticals from the water and pesticides songs and flame retardants and remove E. coli from the water so think of them as nature's equivalent to Britta filter cleaning the water. We drink while also so providing suitable habitat to countless other species. The problem is freshwater. Mussels are also one of the most imperilled species on the planet dozens of muscle types have already gone extinct in north. America wiped out by Water Pollution Human Development and habitat loss. The current die off is just one more threat widespread and fast moving. And it's 'cause Richard The biologist says that's the challenge it could be a million things but because of limited time hi and resources we've had pick and choose what we think is the most likely things and start running them down and it takes years worth of effort a team at the University of Wisconsin. That's working with Richard and blevins has detected a virus and a bacteria that are statistically associated with the die off but they're not willing to call either the culprit it just yet climate change stressing ecosystems and threatening species around the world but it does not seem to be the driver here so with the clock. Ticking and cause is unknown. The team in Virginia has something of a contingency plan. A hatchery. Nursery more or less per freshwater mussels is one of our live live in screamed so pheasant. Shell is in here. That's the one that really dial Tim Lane is a muscle recovery coordinator with the Virginia Department of game and Inland Fisheries. He's walking through. What's essentially along shit mind with? PVC pipes trump's and dozens of shallow black buckets half filled with sand. These buckets are home to a WHO's who of endangered mussels species in here. Come away come. Show not to be confused with the endangered Cumberland monkey-face keep pace nearby over here. We have golden shell over here fifty. That's more than probably a wild that we haven't put out there. This facility ability is a last line of defense for some freshwater mussels species lane another. Biologists are reproducing them here and then keeping them safe until they're mature enough to to be brought back into the wild when the recent diop's started on the clinch they brought a bunch of pheasants shells here from an unaffected part of the river. The muscles could be used as a baseline a healthy sample to us as they search for the Diop's 'cause but in a worst case. Scenario with diaw continues unabated. They could also be used as stock going to stand idly by washing away. We're GONNA do the best we can. To help them produce progeny. So the species isn't going through inside the hatcheries attorney's office away from the troughs pumps lane and Richard say they know muscles aren't as photogenic as a rhinoceros or as easy to communicate as the plight apply to the polar bear but Richard says freshwater mussels and many other lesser known species are like the foundation of a house that everything lives in is not awesome to care about the foundation of your house. You could renovate your kitchen but if that foundation is crumbling and you ignore it by the time you notice a problem because you fall through the floor. It's too late to do anything about it.

The Geological Mystery Of The Appalachian Mountains
"The stretch from Alabama to Newfoundland in a nearly straight line except for mysterious one hundred fifty mile area that crosses from Pennsylvania into New York state and this expanse, the mountains are for the east and the rest of the ridge creating Abend what could deform amount ridge to such an extent researchers from the college of New Jersey and the university of Rochester have used hightech techniques to discover the answer. The legends were formed from the North American and African continental plates collided more than three hundred million years ago. The North American plate folded into many intricate wrinkles as it was pushed, westward, forming the ridges. We see today apparently something massive stopped the Westwood movement and the location of the bend. But what the research team used gravity measurements to find the answer. Most people assume that gravity is a same. The globe, but in gravity, measured refined it changes from place to place. That's because the density and thickness of earth. Rock layers is not the same everywhere. Certain parts of the earth are denser than others causing the gravitational pull to be slightly greater in those places using the North American gravity database, the scientists examined the gravitational, pull around the mysterious bend the denser and heart of the rock. The higher the gravity, what they found was a giant underground bog of dense volcanic rock at the location of the bed. The dense of all Cannock rock created a barricade, forcing the Appalachians and do their unusual bend, and this case, the Eurosystem force truly met the movable object. This moment of science comes from Indiana University. I'm Don glass.
