How Did Christiana Hale Come to Write Her New Book 'Deeper Heaven'?

"I am extraordinarily excited to speak to my next guest because she has written a genuinely magnificent book on one of the most important subjects to me in the world C. S. Lewis. And so let me say first of all, her name is Christiana Hale, she hails spelled differently from Idaho. She is in Idaho right now. Just so you understand, while she was writing this book, she also teaches Latin and English to junior high school students, try to take that in ladies and gentlemen. At a classical Christian school, I am just thrilled to meet her and to talk to her about her brand new book. It's called deeper heaven, a reader's guide to C. S. Lewis's ransom trilogy. Christian Hale welcome to the Arctic show. Thank you so much for having me. Well, listen, we try to get you in the studio and our schedule was all screwed up. But I just want to say, when I read this book, I was just so thrilled because I love C. S. Lewis so much. And the ransom trilogy, the space trilogy, whatever it's called many, many people are not familiar with it. And that, of course, needs to change. And books like yours will help to I'm already helping it is helping to change that. Your book is helping to change that. So before we get into the book deeper heaven, I just have to ask you about yourself. How does a very young woman like yourself come to write a magnificent volume on C. S. Lewis's ransom trilogy? How did this happen? How did you where did you grow up? How did you happen? What's going on? Yeah. Sometimes I ask myself how it happened because it still surprises me at times that this is where life has taken me. But I grew up on C. S. Lewis primarily the chronicles of Narnia as many of us did. So a very young age. I was introduced in Narnia and just fell in love with those books. And it wasn't till I was probably in high school that I realized there's a lot more to see us Louis than just a children's fiction author. In fact, that was very small part of his life and his calling and what he did. So I remember reading or starting to read the ransom trilogy at a young age and I actually quite frankly didn't like it. I didn't get into it really. I couldn't understand it. But then I attended new Saint Andrew's college in Moscow Idaho and as a freshman rhetoric class, we had to read the ransom trilogy and at that point with a teacher who delve deeper into the especially the medieval cosmology side of things, which I think will probably talk about later. That just captured my imagination.

How the Addition of Finland and Sweden Would Change NATO

"NATO is about to expand to Finland and Sweden. You were the allied supreme commander of NATO. Are you going like this? Hooray, we got the fans in or are you saying, oh my God, the finished border with Russia expands my theater of operations by 50%. It is two thumbs up. And if I had other thumbs to offer, I would make them. We have got to get the fins in the Swedes in to NATO. That big border is a tactical and strategic advantage for NATO. It allows us to move our bases our troops are jets up into that northern Flank. It gives us real purchase into the Arctic. It is a very significant chunk of real estate. We want it. So geography matters. Number two, these are warfighting nations combined their defense budget is around 15 billion. That's about a fourth of the Russian defense budget. So we're adding real money and resources and then finally hue, the Finns have a big army. They have the largest number of artillery pieces in Europe.

What Is 'Shadow Banning?' Phil Cooke Tells Us

"Shadow banning? And I want to talk about that, but explain that to people. Well, censoring would be when they completely block you. They take you off, they deplatform you. You've heard that term. Shadow banning is when they just restrict the number of people that can see your posts. So they can throttle that back. They're the tech company. They know how to do that. And so I have, like I said, about 12 and a half thousand people follow me at this point, but only 20 or 30 people get to see what I post. At any given time. Okay, now why would they do that? In other words, that's very, very dark. What we've seen it with conservatives, we've seen it with people that a number of Christians are experiencing that. I think they have what they call community standards and somehow I'm violating their community standards. Now, I don't understand how that works. They never publish what those community standards actually are. So there's no way to know if you're actually violating them. So it's very frustrating. Well, look, it happened to us, it happened to us. We were, this program, the Arctic attacks show, was completely wiped off of YouTube. And I thought to myself, you know that the people who did this are evil, because there is nothing that I'm doing on my program that would warrant wiping out the show. You just know that these are dark actors. They are bad people and that they don't like you and they have the power to wipe you out and they're simply using the power, but they have no standards. They don't care. And I think it's just important for us to talk about that, to say that this is real. And I think until it happens to you, you can turn a blind eye to it. But when it happened to me, I thought, wow,

"arctic" Discussed on Against The Odds

"Ada blackjack stands on a dock in gnome's harbor. A row of anchored ships sway in the water. The chatter of fishermen and prospectors fills the air. She feels the wind ruffle her black hair, which she's pulled into a tight braid. A few days ago, a friend told her about a job opportunity. It's a chance to earn more money than what she's making, scrubbing floors and sewing clothes. Blackjack needs that money if she ever hopes to get Bennett out of the children's home. But this job would involve leaving him for two years. On the dock, four white men, loom over her. Blackjack is used to being smaller than everyone around her. But these men are gigantic. The leader looks like he's well over 200 pounds with a booming voice that hurts black Jack's ears. You know how to sew skins and furs? Blackjack nods, too intimidated to speak. You can sew the seams in that special Inuit way, so they're waterproof, right? Yes, my seams never leak. Blackjack can't imagine spending two years away from Bennett alone in some remote corner of the Arctic with these huge white men. She works up the nerve to ask a question that's been bothering her. Would I be the only woman on the trip? The men burst out laughing, but black Jack's not sure what's funny. Of course not. We're hiring several Inuit families, men and women. You'll have plenty of company. The four men step away and speak quietly amongst themselves for a few minutes. Then, the big one turns back to blackjack. Jobs yours if you want it, we pay $50 a month. Blackjack tries to hide her shock. $50 a month? That's more money than she's made in her whole life. At the end of two years, she'd have more than enough to take care of Bennett. She could even take him to Seattle, where she's heard they have much better hospitals than the ones in nome. Images flash in her mind, a polar bears of other unknown danger she could be facing, but she decides Bennett is worth it. I'll take it. The men give her money to buy all the sewing supply she'll need. They explain that their ship, the silver wave, will leave nome on September 9th. After a stop in Siberia for more supplies, the ship will drop them off on wrangel island, which will be their home for the next two years. As blackjack walks back into town, her head spins. She'll be leaving behind everything and everyone she knows in just a matter of weeks. She tries to calm herself. She thinks of the money she'll earn and what it can buy. A phrase repeats in her head like a mantra. I'm doing this for Bennett. I'm doing this for Bennett..

Author Eric Cassell's Book 'Animal Algorithms' Is Full of Extraordinary Information

"Brand folks. I'm talking to Eric castle, CA SS ELL. He's the author of animal algorithms. Full of extraordinary information. Eric, I was just reading here that one species of migratory shorebird breeds in the Arctic regions, it's called the bar tailed God wit. I love these the names of these birds. But you say you write that they're four subspecies that migrate to different regions with the most interesting being the Alaskan godwit, which migrates between either New Zealand or Australia in the southern hemisphere to western Alaska in the northern hemisphere. And this is what kills me. You write the migratory route consists of a series of non stop flights. One bar tailed godwit that was tagged with a satellite tracking device was recorded flying nonstop for 6000 350 miles from New Zealand to China. Then after feeding for 5 weeks, it flew another 4013 miles to the Alaska Peninsula even more impressive impressively the same bird flew the return route to New Zealand covering 7189 miles non stop in 8 days that's an average speed of about 35 mph for close to 200 hours. I mean, the book is full of stuff like this, and it just can not help fill you with awe and wonder at some of these creatures whose names we've never heard before. Yeah. Some of those behaviors of particularly these long distance migrating birds is, like you say, it's pretty amazing. But it's amazing for a number of different reasons. One is the navigation ability that we've already talked about. But the other is the physical capabilities of these birds to fly thousands of miles nonstop. And what happens is that the birds going through a process, prior to migrating, there's a lot of physiological changes that take place and one of which is obviously they must eat a lot of food to store up enough calories for the journey. It's called curveball loading. It's called carbo

"Women's spent most of the last two years living in a tiny cabin on a remote arctic island in norway. It's an old trapper station built for beluga hunting. It's no running water no electricity. It's even insulated. It was a couple of very cold winters staying there until the fallen strum she and cinema sorby are explores who are passionate about protecting the arctic. The fastest warming region on earth. While living there they collected data that will be used by climate scientists. They took ice core samples operated drowns to measure sea-surface temperatures and documented wildlife sightings sobe relish the opportunity to live so close to nature to go to a place like the arctic which looks so frozen and so forbidding and to feel so at home was a really powerful feeling and she wanted to share it with others from the cabin sorby and strom connected with students around the world using satellite video. And they're all on camera and they're lit up because they get to explore without leaving their seat. The women hope to inspire a new generation to fall in love with the arctic and worked to protect it.

"Terry tempest williams invites us to celebrate the land and the people. You'll meet at a variety of national parks across the united states in her book. The hour of land. She describes the park. She's visited as breathing spaces each with a unique personality that deserve our patronage our respect and our protection by the way our conversation was recorded before the global pandemic. Terry it's good to have you with us. Thank you read your book. The our land takes us not to the obvious parks but it takes us to some of the less famous parks. You chose about a dozen parks to introduce to us why these parks why not win at the grand and famous ones. Would you believe me if i told you that i saw this as a dinner party. You know my mother was a great hostess and she always said you know. Pick your dinner parties very carefully because who knows what will come out of them so you know here. We have fifty nine national parks in our country. How to choose a dozen. So i really did envision it as dinner party i knew who the heads of the table would be my mother park which would be grand teton national park. The other end of the table. I knew it would be canyon. Lands national park where we live closely to. I could count on them then. I thought all right who's gonna be on the other end of the table holding the space that are reliable and for me. It was a canadian national park in maine and teddy roosevelt national park. In north dakota. I had been to the many times and they were trustworthy. Then i thought okay. Who are the dream guests that i would want that. I don't know. But i know other people who do and we can bring them to the table and i thought of big bend national park.

Wet Notes 8-30-21

"This is wet notes here on scuba shack radio for monday august thirtieth two thousand and twenty one. Well we have certainly had our fill of extreme weather lately just last week here. In connecticut we face the challenges of tropical storm on re just barely below hurricane strength and at the last minute it shifted east and we avoided the brunt of the wind rhode island wasn't as fortunate and now we have item a cat for hurricane hit louisiana. Extreme weather is now the norm. The news keeps getting worse. Recently there was a study published by nicholas bars from the potsdam institute for climate impact research and that was that the gulfstream could be varying towards irreversible collapse. Now the gulf stream is part of the atlantic meridional overturning circulation or a. m. Oc this circulation takes warm salty. Water from the tropics moves in north and then takes the cold water south. The study finds that the circulation is at its weakest in one thousand years. So what happens if the gulfstream collapses that will dictate extreme cold for parts of north america and europe. Is the collapse imminent well. That's not an easy question. Answer it could be decades away but as we have seen things are happening a lot faster when it comes to climate change not only will the disruption of the gulfstream resort in colder north american temperatures. It is predicted that there will be a rise in sea level disruption of the monsoon patterns and impacts on the amazon rainforest. An aunt arctic ice sheets. The study concluded that is that this is all a result of human endorse induced climate. Change in may of this year. I talked about a project out on lake. Tahoe called cleanup lake. That project had an ambitious goal of cleaning over seventy two miles of the mountain lake. So i thought i would give it a quick update on how the work is progressing. Now these numbers come from the cleanup delake website. Cleanup delete dot org as earlier this month. Team of divers has removed an amazing eight thousand. One hundred and twenty two pounds of trash were three hundred and three thousand six hundred eighty four kilograms and covered about twenty two miles or thirty four kilometers of coastline. There update indicated that they have completed seventy four dives over twenty seven days of diving. The diver's consumed two hundred and eighty six cylinders of air. Today there have been eighty one volunteers who have delivered two thousand six hundred and eleven volunteer hours. Now i'm not sure if they're on pace to meet their objectives but that's not always the measure success. The amount of continuing effort is what really counts. Keep up the good work guys. The annual boston sea rovers clinic for this year is just one month away. The two thousand twenty clinic happened just a couple of weeks. Before the corona corona virus lockdowns took effect. We really didn't know how serious things were then. Now as we continue to emerge from the pandemic the show may just have the distinction of being the last face to face. Scuba show in the world before the pandemic and the first face-to-face scuba show in the world post pandemic monty. And i were at the last meeting. And everything's proceeding for the october. First and second show the show will follow state and local mandates and as the days pass by. We are all hoping that the show will go off his plan. This year shows moved from the traditional march date to october as a result of the pandemic that you'd be a great time to enjoy some early fall weather in new england. It'd be great to get together and diving is certainly a social sport. Do you miss dive training magazine. I sure do. I think i've re reread all the back issues. We have a good shop at least three times. So what's happening with the publication. Well i reached out to catherine castle garcia the editor to find out the latest catherine informed me that they hope to be publishing again in the fourth quarter of two thousand and twenty one. Now that's some good news. The fourth quarter is not that far away. And i'm certainly looking forward to dive training magazine hitting the streets and finally here on wet notes. I wanted to give you an update on the situation with dutch springs. If you remember last time. I reported that the property owned by stu jill school had been sold to trammell crow texas developer. Who's planning to build a large warehouse facility on the property. The initial word was that dutch would shut down after the season while a lot has happened in the last couple of weeks i there was a petition that garnered over three thousand supporters to keep the place open and as we know petitions can only go so far then there was support from patty professional association of diving instructors patty due to white paper outlining the economic benefits dutch brings provides as a diving venue. Patty estimates that because dutch exists. It helps to generate three point. Four billion annual retail sales in the northeast they tag the economic benefit to bethlehem at thirty four point five million as for tax revenue. The paper indicates that about ninety. Eight point nine million is generated for state and local taxes and northeast and about two point one million for bethlehem in addition to patty support. The lehigh valley planning commission has called the proposal of disaster for the quality of life in the lehigh valley while it seems that there a great deal of opposition to maybe very little that can be done to stop the effort. One positive. I that i did see. Was that trammell. Crow was indiscretions with local officials to offload the fifty off lou to fifty acre quarry for community use. Just how would you get to acquire if they build the warehouses. I don't know while the saga is far from over. I would expect that we won't see. Dutch brings open for the twenty twenty two dive season but his al michaels once said. Do you believe in miracles. Well that's it for this edition of wet notes.

"Was the weather like there. Like you say. Bladder buster. i'm thinking well. Yeah maybe you can't just go find a tree nine signal out the international rules that govern that place say that you can't do that sort of stuff. Oh really oh okay. That's one of the unique features that if you're out in a boat or if you're over on the land visiting penguin colony or something like that you have to get taken back to to the ship. Sometimes it's like a ten minute ride. Sometimes it's twenty so and drink. Don't drink a lot right. You can't bring food or anything that over either so well. well what. What kind of geared did you bring out there with you. You mentioned packing light. But when i when i go on something especially if i was going one of these adventures it'd be a lot i don't i wanna make sure i have every contingency covered so i need these moorlands. Well i got to bring multiple bodies because if one fails. I don't wanna be that guy without a camera so let me have a backup body. Multiple batteries chargers and wow the drone shots out. There must be amazing. Now i gotta bring my drone kit. What do you bring. What do you recommend that your that your students bring along with them. Definitely bring like a big. So if someone's only bringing in a couple of lenses it's gotta be big and a wide and you can cover a lot of ground that way if you're more of a serious hobbyist or professional you're definitely going to want to bring the best glass you have. I i do try to pack light. Pack light on everything except probably my gear. That's where i if you're going to go down for six weeks or something like that. Have to have two bodies. You have to have enough batteries and cards. Now you do. Because you're kind of staying on a boat you get the opportunity to dump cards backed up to the car drives and recharge batteries and stuff. So it's a little different in that sense that you don't have been on trips for forty five days where you just have the memory cards you have. And the you solar rechargeable batteries or whatever and that's just the way it is but on these trips. Typically there's two bodies in there too like seventy two hundred one to four hundred converter of some sort of a one point four A wide. I have a sixteen to thirty five that i've just driven into the ground and snow. It's been it's been with me everywhere and it's literally of showing it to student a couple of nights ago. I did an ashtray workshop. And showing her my sixteen to thirty five and has just got like a relevant glue all around the front holding it together. It's completely frankenstein the see. That's that's a. That's a rite of passage. Right there you can. You can always tell you know. I don't want to say a real photographer but you can. You can tell a working photographer. By how new their gear looks right. And because you you're taking your gear literally to some of the harshest conditions beating it up and it's all about the image. Not so much the fancy gear and keeping it pristine looking for the next owner right. Yeah my gear. Looks like me after one of these trips. And i've been refused hugs at airports by loved ones after. Let's be like who is this guy. That's that's how my dear looks. And i expect it to keep up with me that way. So yeah get stress. How talk to me a little bit about the camaraderie and the friendships. Because it seems like when you're when you're in these kind of adventures and with with a small group of people that are experiencing things for the first time you build up a certain camaraderie and kinship did you. Did you feel that happened on this adventure. Yeah totally and every every trip is different and arctic. Had its own sort of vibe and it was different than last year in antarctica. Mongolia was different again. We're going to greenland on sunday morning. League go to greenland and that'll have its own little different energy but you definitely build camaraderie and sort of like this unique bond with the people that you're with because you're all going through these amazing and they literally are like for some people life changing experiences. And i don't mean it like as a throw away phrase cliche way but like this is really majestic sort of awestruck moments and and you don't pack it in and go your separate ways and connect on facebook afterwards you go back you sit you eat together you know you have like a nightcap together you listen to some music you You see the next morning for breakfast. You repeat it all over again for days and days and days so yeah i mean it's it's one of the few events in my world anyways where i get to form real friendships and sort of closeness with complete strangers and win like a week to ten days we've become actual friends and not just acquaintances online or wherever which is is a lot of the rest of my world. I guess and maybe a lot of people too. So i like i like that. It gives us a little break from reality. It i love it occurred so this sounds like the adventure of a lifetime right. So people listening to this really. Yeah i wanna go there. I wanna go to an article. I want to go to the arctic and experience this stuff before it goes away permanently if they want to do this if they went ahead out on an adventure like this or to other sort of exotic places. What are some tips and tricks for them to do so and then also if they want to join you. A one of your upcoming workshops. What's what how do they. How do they do that. I would say that the easiest way to get started if you wanna do something like this is beat like honestly gauge where your your relative experience lies. So if you're really comfortable with this kind of travel you know exotic places and and remote locations where some of the niceties reliable internet and cell service and More hot water toilets vegetarian meals. You're not always going to get all of those things and a lot of these places. But if you want to work your way up to that i. I would suggest just picking doable adventures. That are.

Biden Administration Sound Alarm Over U.N. Climate Report and Urge Swift Action

"President, Biden says we need to keep an eye out on the climate and the environment. He issued a dire warning on Monday after a bombshell. United Nations report on climate change came out. It claims that global warming is already causing extreme weather. And the world will heat up by 2.7 degrees by the year 2040. That's actually a decade sooner than originally thought. This news comes amid record heatwaves and wildfires and flooding all around the world, including here in the United States. Scientists say the Arctic is likely to be ice free before the year. 2050 and experts say the only possible saving Greece would be cutting emissions of greenhouse gases. The president warned that doing nothing is only adding to the problem, which he calls a crisis.

In an interview with The Observer newspaper today, Mr Sharma said, the effects of radical climate change We're already clear with floods, fires, heat waves He said A report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change due to be published tomorrow would be the starkest warning yet about what the future might hold. Well, let's You know, from Professor Andrew Shepherd, who's a glaciologist at the University of Leeds here in the UK, Um could you first professor please explain what the remit of this PC report is and what you think it might say. So I think everyone's familiar with these reports. Now we've had them for the past 30 years. Um, what this report is going to tell us is the latest changes in the Earth's climate We expect But it's also going to say that we've changed parts of our climate system for good actually, and that's surreal.

Which are the ones that you're most concerned about? So there are quite a few. Actually, I think, um across climate science, maybe a dozen also have been identified. But there's some really obvious ones that people will have heard about retreat of the ice in the Arctic Ocean, for instance, and rapid melting and acceleration of glaciers in Antarctica and Greenland. And they might seem a long way away from people because they're at the polls. But as soon as I entered the ocean that affects sea levels,

Why Is Snow on the Alps Turning Red?

"Glacier blood. No it's not a new flavor from heavy metal water company liquid death glacier blood is what some call the phenomenon of snow on the alps turning red and the snow isn't read from some type of pollutant or something like when that chocolate factory accidently coated whole town in switzerland with reddish brown cocoa dust last year. It's a naturally occurring phenomenon as the result of snow. Algae quoting the bbc normally these micro algae have a green color as they contain chlorophyll. The family pigments produced by most plants to help them absorb energy from sunlight. However when the snow algae grew prolifically and are exposed to strong solar radiation they produce red colored pigment molecules known as carotenoids which act as sunshield to protect their chlorophyll and quotes now. This red snow is not a new phenomenon or even a new discovery. The bbc notes that it's mentioned as early as eighteen nineteen in a book about an arctic expedition the year prior and the new york times points to aristotle as having the first written observation of red snow. It also doesn't just happen in the alps. Researchers two years ago found samples of what they've dubbed sanguine. Ah in europe. North america south america the south pole and as clearly illustrated by that eighteen nineteen book the north pole new occurrences do seem to be increasing however and some recent findings are shedding more light on the bizarre spectacle while the data isn't fully there yet most researchers believe climate change is responsible for the increase in red snow leeann bending a professor of interface geochemistry at the german research centre for geosciences in potsdam told the bbc quote the rise in the atmosphere carbon dioxide levels increases the temperature which leads to more snow melting. The moment there is liquid water on the snow. The algae start growing and quotes

Growth Acceleration Secrets From The Private Equity POV

"Talk to me about private equity as it relates to marketing specifically marta companies. There's a lot of b2b sast companies that are out there that are thinking about the ipo. Were the big exit in reality. They don't have the scale you know. Become the next unicorn so they ended up scrambling. Where does private equity fit in. Who do you look for. So i would say this is the sweet spot. I really focused on sas based organizations. There's probably a plethora of organizations out there that really don't understand how to stabilize get on a accelerated growth track. I mean most of the founders of these organizations are more tech savvy individuals. Were they don't understand what it means to penetrate the market to build headcount to create conversion and remarketing and accelerate their growth and focus on. I like to call it. A focused on impact versus just revenue. Because most of these organizations are trying to make money versus generate impact which is a three prong approach towards scaling an organization that focuses on reach revenue en marche so when i meet by that as sast based organizations which brought up these czars software as a service based organizations and i like to focus on memberships. How many members can we get into the stock. And how quickly can we accelerate value Into these snacks and the goal is one which is reach. How do we start reaching the market and we take over. A percentage he had we penetrate penetrated market and that comes down to traditional arctic miles all the way through the advance more digital that we get into revenues. Not just reach. Now how do we convert the reach into some kind of a monetary value and in what we're converting we need to look at the organization not just from a sales sale sales because a lot of these atkins monsters out there. Only do they focus on. How do we make it sound. it's less about the sale. If you don't understand the march it's more about the operational side because sale is easy. If you have a great product sale is going to be recurring. If you have great product your organization will not stabilise thrive and grow and get to the next level of success is you don't understand the operational model so the third prompt to that impact generation is really on the margin. Saw that really encapsulates. Every functional aspect of an organization combined with the reach revenue which generates march.

And he's authored a co-authored over fifteen hundred publications including articles book chapters and books. And even that bios a huge understatement of all eve accomplished. Hey bob so great to have you in the podcast today. Thanks reeling having me. Thanks for inspiring me to go into the field. So i i is. It seems fair seems fair. No that will thank you. Thank you so much that means a lot to me You know in starting this conversation today. We could obviously talk about the research stuff. But i wanted to start more at your own childhood because i think it's i get a real kick out of every time i read that you created intelligence test when you were in. Maybe even elementary school. Can you kind of tell me about that story. Sure when i was in elementary school i didn't created i did poorly on. Iq tests is a young kid. In the late fifties early sixties. They used to give iq tests every year to group iq tests. And i did very poorly on them and you might ask how i know since they didn't give us the scores. But when you get the test and you only finish one or two problems and everyone else's turn the page. It doesn't take a high. You realize that you bombed so when i was in sixth grade i was sent back to a fifth grade classroom to take an easier tests that they thought would be more suitable to my ability level and because it was a fifth grade classroom my was less afraid and i think i did better i in seventh grade. I decided try to figure out why did so much trouble when he just said. I did a project on development of the mental tests and i devised my own.

Expert Weighs in on Connection Between Climate Change and Recent Heatwaves

"Nature. Climate Change found that more than a third of the total deaths due to heat waves can be attributed to climate change. What should we expect in the coming years? I mean these events Likely to be more common. We know from the climate science that climate change is increasing the frequency, the intensity and the duration of heatwaves. We also have seen over the last few years. Very extreme heat waves. In Siberia last year where the temperatures in the Arctic I believe we're over 100 degrees. There was a heatwave in Japan that the Japanese meteorological authorities said couldn't have happened without climate change. Northern Scandinavia, Sweden A couple of years ago had a heatwave was 700 excess deaths. So we're seeing these around the world. And, yes, Communities need to develop heat action plans to be prepared for much hotter future. That was Professor Christi E.

"I'm misunderstanding it, But, you know, just anecdotally. Seems like our weather is just weird. Like a lot of it. It seems more temperate. Then I remember like from my childhood. And yet when the day comes when it's going to be cold or when it's going to be hot man, it kills us with that is that normal for us are things changing. Well, what is normal for the bay areas that we have so many micro climate that you can find significantly almost dramatically different weather conditions in towns that are adjacent each other depending on you know the elevation how close they are to the coast. How close we are to the bay, So it's not unusual for the barrier to have what People from outside. The Berry might call weird weather, but it's even weirder now, and it's weirder now because we are experiencing more extremes now than before. The the heat waves are occurring earlier in the year earlier in the summer season than they typically did, and in the distant penned the Not too distant past. Uh, droughts are occurring. Earlier and lasting longer, and this is not just here in the Bay Area. This is, uh, this is what's happening all around the world right now.

Seventeen worcester's team submerged transmitters in the arctic ocean which broadcast low frequency radio waves underwater. He hoped to learn about how the changing ocean conditions altered the way the seafloor sounded perhaps canopy distressed wildlife and inadvertently created the ping. Several canadian journalists interviewed the scientists behind the project asking if it was possible that canopy had unintentionally driven the seals out of the fury and hecklers straight worcester dismissed concerns noting that the signals they broadcast had only a maximum range of about two hundred miles. Nowhere near the distance they would need to travel to reach nunavut. He added that even if a sound wave could make it that far.

Goodness in one small can and now back to the story. The nunavut paying allegedly drove wildlife away from the fury and hecklers straight around two thousand sixteen possible explanations for the sound have included scientific sonar devices antisocial hunting activists. Ufo's and unauthorized military submarines. Since submarines use sonar to navigate some theorists. How suggested the boats in the fury and hecklers straight. Were detecting rogue subs if true. Nobody knew where they came from. Historically russia has been notorious for its widespread submarine operations. Their subs frequently patrolled the borders of sovereign waters nearly violating north american territory. Plus the federation also had a history of attempting to claim arctic land international law states that the north pool and the region around it cannot be the property of any single nation however several countries have tried to seize neutral territory most notably canada and russia if they succeeded arctic holdings would give russia a distinct advantage in trade and for military purposes as the ice cap shrank. More waterways open between russia and canadian than ever before perhaps russia's scouted these passages to see how close they could get to north america in the event of a global war. It might sound like a wild theory. But in march two thousand twenty one of video surfaced on the internet showing russian nuclear submarines breaking through the arctic ice sheets. This proved they'd been running submarine drills in the arctic and they weren't the only ones the pin could also be a chinese sub around two thousand sixteen when the ping first appeared the chinese government outlined plans to start using the northern arctic passage to trade more efficiently with north america others have suggested american submarines may be running drills as well ultimately. It's hard to say with these subs come from. Because there's no hard evidence suggesting where they originated or even if they exist and although it has several traits in common with sonar. It's not even clear. If the paying is a sonar wave moreover the fury and hecklers straight would have limited strategic value. It does connect the northernmost arctic seas to the hudson bay. But it doesn't really lead anywhere else. The straight is also dotted with many small islands. That make it difficult. For large cargo ships to easily maneuver the region could only be so useful for.

"Element of domestic signaling as well so this is really interesting Because one reads articles about whether nato ought to have a mission in in the arctic and and all that which frames isn't very start militaristic terms. So let me ask you about the way that the arctic this region has been governed in relatively recent years which is as i understand relatively successful kind of multilateral formal and informal agreements in which some of the powers we haven't talked about some middle powers have played a really constructive role and there's Tony blinken was up at the arctic council What is that current management structure. And is it well suited to the new era and gino. Start with you. Oh i think you're talking about almost two parallel universes here because there is the whole military dimension that we just referred to in our conversation but then there is the arctic council which is A gathering of forum off the arctic states plus several others. Who haven't that have interest in the arctic and that is supposed to be a forum for non-military issues To deal with issues of climate change Fish management of arctic resources. Really kind of milk. Toasts issues where Everybody can say look. We're getting along fine as freely. You know to use Perhaps not very appropriate but to my mind This call it somewhat. Fake corporation within the arctic council is an attempt. Certainly by russia's. I see to put some lipstick on a pig. Because beyond the arctic council russian posturing has been very aggressive as bad intended to project an image to domestic audiences of apostol nato seeking to grab what is russia's national patrimony And that in turn has inflamed as i mentioned before a great deal of concern in the united states that among our later allies especially those that share a common border with russia and You know. I have really struggled for for for to find a good documents that would outline what. Us interests in the arctic car. And i really haven't found one. There was sort of a national strategy put forth believe in two thousand thirteen by the obama administration There have been strategies put forth by being states army united states navy. Predictably coast guard air. Force the marines. A but my sense is that when you have so many strategies it means that we really don't have a national strategy for the arctic so basically is a response has their response the response the arctic by the united states. We're falling what our our commitment to our nato allies with the arctic. Now be part of the seven year old standoff since their crisis with ukraine In two thousand fourteen standoff between russia and nato becomes our strategy by default. Yeah and rebecca do you see it similarly think it's yeah ask you know. I think there's a couple of different threads that are important to pull out more thinking about sort of security interests in the arctic and so you know jeans totally right. One of those is That what's going on particularly in the The the north atlantic arctic area is a piece of what's happening more broadly in europe between nato russia and that is part of the decline that has been going on since ukraine and even georgia russia is back militarily and they are engaging in a whole host of really problematic actions from curving off pieces of smaller countries to interfering with us elections to assassinating people around europe and in the arctic part of europe. So when we're thinking about sort of the nordic region We're seeing the russians jam. Gps in northern norway conduct very snap. Large-scale military exercises in the barents and in the norwegian sea We're seeing more military exercises and operations including submarine operations than we have been seeing since the depths of the cold war. And so there's this level of Really disruptive activity that is very problematic. And you can combine that. With some new russian capabilities like their next generation submarines and some of their new generations of weapons and sensors. And you come up with a very threatening picture. And that's a big part of what is concerning our allies You know norway denmark. Sweden finland iceland. That's part of the sort of arctic nato group. And you know it's of a piece of what's happening across sort of western europe. I would argue that. That's not necessarily about the arctic though that is much more about The russia nato relationship and a piece of that is playing out in a part of the arctic when it comes to sort of russian economic development farther east east of the chola deeper into along northern sea route. You know as we move along sort of the northern coastline of russia. That's much more about economics. Because as jean said there's not much there it's very far away from europe. At that point there is There's not a lot of sort of nato's nato interests In the eastern northern sea route for example and so. I think that's very. It's a very different set of interests and concerns. And i i often encourage people to think about sort of a two level game. So there's the russia-nato relationship which is very very problematic but is not necessarily about the arctic. And then there's what's happening in the arctic itself which from a military perspective if we're talking about the whole arctic basin right the central arctic ocean. It's a transit route for intercontinental missiles and it has been since the cold horse the shortest route between the united states and russia and so from a sort of missile defense perspective. Yeah we think about the arctic as a vector again there's nothing sort of in the arctic itself it just happens to be the shortest route for missiles transiting between continents right And so. I think it's worth kind of pulling apart into this different pieces because it tells us a little bit more about how to think about different kinds of security interest in the region that was fabulous and given that analysis gene. If you agree with it if you want to disagree with any of. That's fine as well. But what does that mean in terms of what the appropriate. Us or maybe us and nato responses are insecurity terms. We are back to a version of the cold war.

Rebecca is an assistant professor in the strategic and operational research department in the center for naval war studies at the us naval war college. Welcome rebecca great. Debut here too. I'm really looking forward to the discussion. Thanks for having me. So rebecca lovey. Start with you and just ask you to do something which is kind of hard. Which is the paint a picture of the arctic part of the map that most people focus on very much so you could you remind us of this region who borders which countries border on the region. Does anyone live up there kind of what. What's a sense of what we need to know. Sure and that's a really important question to start off with so When we talk about the arctic region were generally referring to the region north of the arctic circle. The arctic circle is sixty six and a half degrees north latitude and so all of the area lying above that circle is typically what we think of as the arctic and that includes the arctic ocean which is the world's ocean. It's about Five times the size of the mediterranean for reference or roughly a fifth of the size of the indian ocean and there's also the land mass of eight arctic states that surround the arctic ocean the largest arctic state by land. Mass is russia russian. Coastline makes up about half of the arctic coastline and then if we work our way around the arctic basin from russia we can go to alaska so the united states is an arctic nation by virtue of alaska and then canada and then we come to the island of greenland which is part of the kingdom of denmark then iceland right in the middle of the north atlantic and then we have the scandinavian peninsula so sweden finland denmark norway so those are the eight arctic states again. Greenland is part of the kingdom of denmark and There's roughly four million people living north of the arctic circle. Most of them are in russia and the arctic region is characterized by arctic conditions. So sea ice which is a dominant feature of the arctic ocean as well as midnight sun so in the summertime right now. Days are very long The area above the arctic circles getting twenty four hours or nearly twenty four hours of daylight in the wintertime. It's almost entirely dark and another important thing which i'm sure everyone realizes about the arctic warming much much faster than the rest of the world. It's warming faster than anywhere else. There's already about three or four degrees of warming in the arctic and that's a result of climate change and that is causing massive to all aspects of arctic ecology Species are changing their distribution sea. Ice is thawing. We're seeing new species move in. We're seeing permafrost permanently frozen soil melting out which is creating problems on land coastal erosion changing weather patterns. It's just an enormous amount of environmental. Change taking place in the region thank you. That's that was amazingly sancta and well done. I've got a vivid image in my own mind. Gina i want.

"Happens to icebergs icebergs will. Warm air will melt the snow ice forms. These little pools that we call melt ponds and that trickles through the iceberg in any cracks. That are there because remember we're just working with pellets at this point of crystallized snow for lack of a better description than that warmer water will start to widen any cracks within the iceberg at the same time water is lapping on the sides of the iceberg. Because it's sitting in the arctic sea because it sitting in some freezing ocean and both of those courses melting. The ice will cause a sheet of that iceberg to break off. This typically happens in small ish chunks but the ones that you are seeing videos of online of big chunks of iceberg breaking off and falling into the ocean are really interesting to look at from a climate change perspective. Because if it's a big chunk of ice sheet that's falling off. That means that the glacier is not all that deeply packed. There are more cracks within the glacier for this water this glacial melt to seep into and form wider and wider cracks. And then a big chunk of ice will fall off of the iceberg. I've been using the term glacier pretty strategically here but we also just use the word iceberg. I wanna make sure we're super clear on the difference between glaciers and icebergs. Glaciers are large sheets of ice. They can extend for miles and miles. Icebergs are smaller pieces of ice. That have broken off or caved from glaciers and they are now drifting within the ocean. The titanic hit an iceberg. It did not hit. a glacier. Glacier is a big old landmass the iceberg is poking out of the water and it is a giant chunk of ice that has broken off from that glacier now. This is going to be helpful information. Because i'm going to revisit. Something i said at the top of the episode. The arctic is warming faster than antarctica. That's because the arctic is an ocean. It consists mostly just of sea ice big glaciers. This is actually considered a desert. It is not a land mass. And that's why. The arctic is not considered a continent antarctica on the other hand is land covered in ice. Antarctica is continent. Antarctica has lost a lot of sea ice but again there is land underneath and scientists have seen. That ice is growing in other places off antarctica..

Would it was a cut which is really the truth but but but when you look at it again her i don't know you know because they're not ray then You know urquhot put them lame on sin. Appoint saying you know. They told him that they had to do something as sin upon took it upon themselves to rotate the injury. So it's kind of like this shifting the blame you know who who wanna take the but for would actually happen on. Everybody kissed a blaming at this point when they dropped the ball no matter where we add in the world with the politics when they dropped the ball. They don't take accountability for their actions or wants to blame centerpoint centerpoint blaming them but at the end of the day. What about your citizens. What did you put up through. What is the solution to the whole issue period because we wanna go back and dig deep you alert of of About the situation you alert everyone prior to this situation that we were gonna have a rotating power outage and we're going shut down the lecture so you know about it you in control you had power you know you had that how and that's what i thought my paid. Because they had the power and they took it away from us. We didn't have any say so about this but now they wanna point fingers with each other. We don't care about that. We wanna know the act the man which is what we're going to discuss a little later but right now just like the day he was saying you know at the beginning we were kind of even though we gain some media everything we still you know. She was like you know they had to do this. I was like no this. Is some government scam. Just feel like you know. I agree with that. I have to agree. You know when you re went when looking at everything and win out for wooded will actually is. It was definitely dead. You know they used the point skews about if it didn't rotate that we would have had a massive blackout. Well i don't believe that shit. You know i watch those people on the news and you could practically see that. There was emotionally about what was going on her. No that it didn't bother them. That people will fucking freezing current literally freezing and you complain. Y'all we have these people that were talking. You know calling people stupid and foolish and all that because they would lighting fire pits amina five pitch barbecue grills in firing up the car. What the fuck do you expect them to do. There was a survivor mode. Yes yonge kick. Did you know you have people that have little keys. Little bitty babies. What are they supposed to do. You know then you go out you know. I don't want to head myself in sticking with what you're saying that it was bigger than it was way beating and just i cinna point to answer to irk. Urquhot have to ask you to somebody. Now who is this. Somebody urquhot is nonprofit. So so that means yala azran to somebody else you kill my tell me one of the the the second largest state in the world.

They all have their hands in the pot and nobody wants to take accountability for their actions and that is sad. It is sad that people have lost their lives due to cold. And now this nosed on.

"That must be nice. Okay, what is one thing that you wish? People knew about Arctic. Foxes. What's really great? About Arctic Fox? Is Their territory -ality so Fox's will travel their territories. Imitating territorial calls, so it's really really impressive when you're there on their field, and you hear fucks is calling from everywhere around you and it's really fun to see them. Travel and call at the same time. That sounds mysterious D to hear all these different animals talking to each other over distances. That sounds so cool. Yeah so. When there's no win, we can hear their call from a great distance, so it's really fun to hear them I'm not sure if they talk to each other or really aimed. They're called. Their neighbor, but usually at night we hear we hear Fox's from different territories calling. And what are they sound like? Are they like wolves or no? It's actually a really different from Wolfe I can try to imitate one. It sounds like I. Really funny. That's cool well. Thank you so much for talking to me about them. They are incredible animals, and your work is really important and so cool. You're welcoming with pleasure for me to. Version. By. Earth Rangers. Well! Okay, that was amazing. If would've been so cool to join her in her adventures in the Arctic. You know all this talk about the Arctic. Has Me wondering which animal is better adapted to the chilly north, the Arctic Fox or the Arctic Hare? Hm I think it's time for an ultimate showdown. Condition. In, this ultimate showdown we're GONNA look at three different features in three rounds and see how the Arctic Fox and the Arctic Hare measure up. First feature. Camouflage Police Lens in better. We know the, Arctic. Fox changes its coat with the seasons in warmer weather. It's Brown to blend in with the Tundra in the winter. It's bright white to match the snow, but how about the Arctic air? It might surprise you to find out that it does be exact same thing. In the wintertime, the Arctic Hare has a white coat in the summer. It's more grey Brown to match it surroundings this round in tie. Round who? Next up how coping with the Colt? Which of these creatures is better equipped to deal with all that snow. Well we know the Arctic foxes coat gets very thick in the winter months. In fact, it actually has the warmest code of all the Arctic creatures. It also has super furry paws. Keep steady on snowy services. But how about the Arctic Hare? Well, it also has a thick winter coat, and it has strong backbeat that act like snowshoes and prevent it from sinking into the snow. Their frenzied have caused that helped them did to the chauffeur food mostly Moss and Lichens in the winter. But because of its extra worm code the Arctic Fox wins this one by knows. Fine all round. Finally which creature can move fast as? Well, it turns out that the Arctic. Fox can reach speeds of thirty kilometers per hour, not bad. But. That's only half as fast as an Arctic. Hare can run. It reaches speeds of sixty kilometers per hour. This round has a clear winner. The Arctic Hare. Who? Let's sure was a close ultimate showdown with Rangers both the Arctic Fox and Arctic. Hare are really well suited to life in the frosty north..

"Just so we experience winter at the beginning of the season, and then spring and summer and fall I, we fly to the community that's close by to pond inlet and from there we go on the island by helicopter and when we're over there. If it's the winter, we'd travel by snowmobile. different. But I during the summer D helicopter, we will pick us up and move to different areas on the island, and so depending on the season. We do quite different things. So at the beginning of the season we visit fucks bent on our on our study side, and there are around one hundred and fifteen on the site. And we visit each Dan to determine if they are active, and if they are you by Fox's and they are, we will install automated cameras onto then that thick pictures, so we can know which lives where on what Ben and we can also determine the litter size later in the season. That's some pretty high tech. Research Yeah. Now I imagine the Arctic to be pretty sparse and. Empty I guess. Do you actually get to see a lot of wildlife up there or is it rare? We actually do see a lot of wildlife for sure it's much rarer to observe animal during the winter, but when it gets into summer, we see a lot of migrating birds We see of course boxes so There's a lot of life over there. Cool If you had to describe Arctic foxes with a single word. What would it be? I'd say they are very active, so they run around their territory territory intensive lead to find prey so every time you see a fox, it's running. All I have to say I'm I'm really jealous looking at pictures of these adorable creatures. Have you ever been really close to one? Yes sure some of them come very close to us when they meet us on the field, and we also do observations their dance, so we can see them very close by, and we also captured them in cages, so we manipulate them to do different measurement and so yeah. I've been very close to a Fox. That is so cool. How big are they? they're quite small. There kind of the size of your house cats, so it's not a big Doug. and. How different are Arctic foxes from Red Sox's. So they're quite smaller than Red Fox. And of course there for is quite different so arctic. Fox are completely white during the winter and in the string there will be will mold, so they will lose their white for and become great. And why does that happen? So it's for for them to be concealed, so they match the color of the snow during winter, so they are more concealed, and it's easier for them to to catch prey. It's a very neat adaptation, but I think I've seen pups with black for. Is that right? Yeah, it's true. There's a what we call a blue morph though you can find Arctic Fox. That are kind of grayish blue. That's cool. Which code is the cutest in your opinion? I prefer to white coat. That's what makes them so unique. How fast is the for a change from winter to summer? And how do they look in the middle of the process? so when we get to the field in May, most Fox's are still see white, and it takes a few weeks for them to get to their a brown grace for. So some of them will have big patches of hair that fall down, and they're not very cute that time, but it it lasts for about tree weeks sightsee. So there's like an awkward transition stage against yeah I saw a video of Arctic. Foxes were they jump and stick their head in the snow. I'm wondering. Did they really do this? I have never seen a fucks. Dude this because we're there mostly in the summer, but during the winter they do this, they can smell and hear their prey under the snow, and they'll jump into snow to catch their running pre. Oh, it's for hunting. Very cool. Are they social animals? Did they live in packs? that's a really good question. Actually their social a system is quite variable across the Arctic so where I study Arctic Fox Day live in Pairs, so they will share territory with their reproducing partner, but in other parts of the Arctic, they will live in small groups as well. was they can do both yeah. Is it true that they can walk really large distances in a short time. I heard of Arctic Fox that went from Norway to Canada in seventy six days. Yeah, that's true. So in winter they may travel very Great distances like you said and also in summer we've found that they can travel around fifty kilometers per per day and up to eighty kilometers in the same day in their territory. Well, that's so intense yet. Did they have any enemies like who are Arctic Foxes afraid of? What about Arctic Wolves? Yeah, so this is also something that it's quite variable across the Arctic. So in some Areas Arctic I. Folks have a Predator, they have new enemy, and in other areas they can have predators like wolves or Red Fox or Wolverines or bears, but in the area where I study Arctic Fuck. They have.

"That they did adopt in official language act in it was adopted at a time when the end of ET included Nunavut, so we also have languages from these stern Arctic that are recognized official languages. So just an example of that. We we've been involved in two projects which where we've done worked with people on terminology development to come up with language in their language traditional language that reflect energy related terms that we use and we did that with a plea chill language and also with the Nubia looked and language. So the clean show language. The plea chill region would be between great slave and bear lake. If you're looking on a map, and the Nubia looked in language would be people who live around enu Vic like before see Arctic sea and north or violence and also smother communities can it into Ving into the Arctic Cup Arca play goal. So they're the last one we did was the new vehicle language, and so that's the part of Inuktitut. The language of circum polar language, it's quite interesting because people from Greenland through to Alaska, this is what we were told by the elders. They're they can communicate with one another even though they have fairly different languages. But generally, they can talk from when it the other. So the purpose of this workshop, and we use this model for both also with clean chill language. So the elders are kind of like the walking dictionaries if he will the language they generally have grown up in their language, and or very strong and knowledgeable and younger period. People rather do to you know, colonization education, it's cetera. So they may not have as strong of a routine in the language sort of depends. So with both these workshops we worked with. People work in theory of language, and the community's name identified the people the language people who are knowledgeable about their language of this. We also have people who've been trained interpreter translator in the north because because of the importance of the language in importance of to Munich ation across witches Sawyer able to pull on people like that together into the workshop, and we had a visual on of the different terms that we use it that we wanted to develop language with and it's kinda fascinating. So there's some terminology that is already there or old terms people have that are still relevant useful. And he's languages are very would be kinda supple. Guess would be the word where it's quite fascinating. 'cause I don't speak those. Languages, but watching the process, and how people come up, and it's they're working in a group, and, you know, small groups, and then it come together in the larger group it goes through what they came up with discuss that nears this moment when everybody's like odd sit slow it was a lot of fun and a lot of learning and what it does an upper of things one. There's a term that can be used. So if you're an meeting presentation where you have interpreters, they have words that they can use to interpret the discussion into their language. It also is interesting because everybody in that workshop learns about those technologies because they have to really get it to be able to. Create a term that reflects whatever that is in the process of terminology development. So for for this workshop, we started in English, and then we will go into a language the say, the new via looked in language, and so then that turns so the term is come up with and then that term is interpreted back into English to see if it retains the meanings throughout the process. Let's kind of the final thing and flick assay they the people in the workshop there's a lot of learning there, and they become knowledgeable of the concepts in the ideas in terms health fit together. So it has a lot of benefit also for kids and developing school materials and things like that. So these words get. Into quite a bit. They have their own path..

"So thanks to both of you. For speaking to me today. Just to start us off with some background information for people who aren't familiar with Canada? Can you explain where the northwest? Territories is and what sort of geography and climate includes all start up so the northwest. Territories lies between Nunavut to the east in the Yukon territory to the west of for folks in the US, it would be quivalent to Alaska in terms of where it's located on North America. We are above Alberda in Manitoba people in Canada. So we're above the sixtieth parallel in the territory extends premature it up to the North Pole of we've got a variety of climates and vegetation. The southern part of the territory would be a kind of Tiga kind of climate of boreal forest. We have one of the longest rivers world the McKenzie river. The into the begins than in great slave late on its part of the watershed that comes in from part of the eastern part of the peace river system, and that empties into full foresee or ocean. And so the climate varies from northern temperate to ace in very northern part above the Arctic circle may have a number of communities above the circle. So they have extended periods of darkness in the Turks ranging from a few weeks to few months and similarly in the summer the citizen set or a few weeks to a few months. So how large are lot of the are what what sort of range of sizes of communities? Do you have in the northwest? Territories the largest city would be the capital, which is Yellowknife population. About twenty thousand and in the south that would be quivalent to like need your city lake New York Vancouver. Whatever in terms of like, relative to the territory, that's the center and the capital there are some other communities populations between a bone twelve hundred to three thousand and the rest of the communities, which are which would be most of the communities are region population from maybe a hundred twenty people maybe eight nine hundred so are do most of the communities have road access aren't there highways, or or are they more remote? They're a lot of those communities are won't in the southern parts of the northwest. Territories. We have road access in. There would be eight communities connected by road.
