Meteorologist Connects Record-Breaking Heat to Global Warming

"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. You don't remember Early last week, British Columbia recorded its highest temperature ever like around 100 and 15. Degrees, Uh, Portland and Seattle and Eugene or according ridiculously high temperatures. 108 112 106 114 degrees that they had never seen before. Finland, Uh, that area of Finland that is part of Lapland north of The Arctic Circle just had its, uh, let's see tied at China's all time record high 90 nearly 93 degrees one day last week, so if places north of the Arctic Circle are regularly setting new records and seven the seven warmest years on record globally have been the last seven years. That should indicate to the to the skeptics and the deniers that yes, it is global warming. It's just just amazing amazing to to me me how how you you know know we've we've already already were were wonderful wonderful country country with with many many wonderful wonderful things things about about that that define define our our country. country. But But one one thing thing that's that's not not so so wonderful. wonderful. That That is is part part of of who who we we are are is is we've we've always always had had a, a, uh uh very very vocal, vocal, very very stubborn, stubborn, anti anti intellectual intellectual element. element. And And it's it's not not only only that that that's that's not not only only that not only includes what we call everyday people, but people who are elected public officials who are so in denial. It's just ridiculous because they find some sort of political benefit to be that way. And it

The Renewable Heating System Right Below Your Feet

"One of the hallmarks of living in a technologically advanced society is even the little details of life that seem mundane and being astonishing. Like the fact that it takes five gallons of water to produce a walnut or that half the plastic. That's ever been made has been made in the past fifteen years. My favorite of these examples is what it takes to keep a room room temperature. Allow me to explain. Heating is generally done by combusting fossil fuel so first we have to find the fuel. Unfortunately it tends to be buried more than clutter under the earth's surface and all too often in inconvenient places like the arctic circle nations in conflict or under the bottom of the ocean and then there's the fact that the substance takes sixty to six hundred million years to form from dead plankton. So there's that issue we drilled these incredibly deep to get it then we pipe it truck it and ship it in tankers across the world to refineries which are these incredibly expensive industrial facilities that taking crude oil and gas which are just a bunch of different hydrocarbon molecules in order to sort those molecules into refined products refined natural gas is then delivered to homes and businesses via an invisible interstate highway system. Millions of miles. Long it's invisible. Because it's underground there are so much pipeline. In this system that entire steel mills have been built only to produce pipeline for this system and because there are millions of miles of gas getting pumped beneath us at high pressure at all times. Engineers send these intelligent. Robots called smart pigs through the pipelines to check for safety. Beck's doing this is called. Pigging the pipeline. Yeah that's a real thing. But even with these precautions there are accidents

"Nine billion for nasa science programs. This is up. Nine percent were twenty one This is funding the development of four missions to launch within the within the next decade to create the earth system observatory This is to study the effects of climate change so really leading into nastase responsibility in the earth scientists. Something the previous administration didn't wanna having to do with There's also one hundred seventy five million to support operations of the james webb. And then there's three point. Two billion for various missions including the one that jumped out at me is the mars sample return mission which we've spoken about the The multi step multifaceted plan to get samples back from mars There's six hundred fifty million to to keep that running and nasa's budget for twenty one. If congress approves it yeah which again who knows but given Given that the one party controls to a certain extent of courses filibusters. And there's all it is more likely that this will go because the two sides of this are are in alignment but you never know. There's also in that three point. Two billion money for the european clipper. Lucy dragonfly psych psyche. Psyche psyche so a bunch of as a usa network tv show. yeah. I watched that last year. They solve crimes kind of psychology and apples. But there's a psyche like know an asteroid. I think but yeah no. It's it's all good money money for space. We like it nine hundred fifteen. Million aeronautics research basically making airplanes better safer the aeronautics portion of nasa. Which when i went to the last time i was down at aims. That was one of the things that they were talking about is. They're doing their Drone Flight plan like instant computerised flight plan for drones and that all is under the aeronautics charter which is how do we make airspace and airplanes safer and that is actually part of what nasa does this. This budget requests seems to have been Greeted warmly by bill nelson so In a press release He said you know. It's the largest budget requests for nasa science. Ever the biden administration is proving scientists. Back this will help. Nasa addressed the climate crisis and advanced robotic missions to pave the way for humans to explore the moon and mars dozens of politician. He's friends with joe biden. Expect as this budget moves forward that he'll be involved and just like we saw brian stein involved during his years Running nasa as well. He's going to be shaking people's hands and talking all his friends about how this is. They should fund the budget. Just like they've asked that's right and then we'll see what happens right like it could be very easily that this is one of those things where they're like. No no we're going to put in money for For blue origin and You know who knows what else. And that's just that's what happens. That's the the give and take but that's why having a former senator is. The nasa administrator is a thing that is happening right now right and and a former member of the legislature the last two administrators now. Because the truth is this is part of it. The politics is part of it. We talked about it a lot. But like that's the truth of it is bill nelson is going to be there and his job is essentially to convince congress to get as much of their proposal for nasa through as possible tomorrow. June second is state of nasa. So there'll be a link in the show notes to where it'll be streamed on youtube. I expect to hear much more about this from bill nelson There's no mistake that this happens right after the budget goes out so i expect that we will hear more about this and nasr's programs tomorrow that is at i to say three. Pm eastern. i believe so. But they'll be like in the show notes that always something we pay attention to and watch And we've been to We've been to one. We've been to a stay of nasa so Jim bridenstine in person. Urine california went the other sites and It's always Always interesting to hear especially when there's a new administrator. What their vision is. I think this will be the first time we really see where bill nelson thinks that the agency needs to go. So i'm definitely tuning in. Yeah it's again. You're you're hearing their case that they're making to congress essentially to fund what they're doing. That's that's what it isn't as long as you keep that in mind then you'll understand what the heck is going on there. You wanna find a link to the stuff. We spoke about there on the web. Relay dot fm.

"Telescope module for the chinese space station. It's being built. Which is great again more space telescopes better. There are very few and they're great and more is better but james webb space telescope. Like this is the one. This is big. This is going to make observations. That are going to teach us things that we don't know about the universe right. It's like the anticipation is enormous. So and it's been so long so here's hoping yeah fingers crossed for that last night. We're talking about your favorite topic. That's nez budget. I sent this to you. And he sent me a sleepy emoji back. So yeah you're to it It's it's super important Although we should say this is the Budget as requested by the administration. Yes and it doesn't matter who what party is in the white house. it doesn't matter what parties controlling congress The presidential recommendation for budget. Is you know interesting but tens not to be what actually right funding ends up being and it doesn't matter if it's the same parties are different parts it really seriously. Congress has its own ideas of what it wants to fund including and maybe especially when it comes to nasa. Yeah we've seen a lot of examples of that you know. We've seen during the trump years. Congress not being willing for the administration to stop funding steam and education and earth sciences. That a lot of that got cuts but congress was unwilling to go as far as the white house wanted as also how you get things like the europa clipper and if you have a congressman with a project very often they just stay around in the budget because someone in that committee wants it to happen so this. This request is for twenty twenty two It seeks twenty four point eight billion dollars for nasa which is a seven percent increase ever fiscal twenty twenty one. Obviously this is not a full breakdown. But i just wanted to highlight some things that i do. Think it's interesting to see what the administration wants to fund with the nasa and again we'll see how this goes in congress But at ten point eight billion you have human exploration and operations that's about a four percent increase This is the human landing system which remember from last episode is tied up because nasa just awarded spacex and congress wants to competitors to be in that game but nasa only had funding for one which comes from congress and now the geos involves so humiliated them big question mark in the future about what actually happens there. But there's also funds gateway orion and of course our friend the sos including a building the expiration upper stage for the block. One b so the is designed to be modular and get more powerful over time. That question upper stage was just put on. Hold earlier this year because budgetary reasons and Basically we can do what we need to do immediately without it and so we're in a focus on artists in two thousand and twenty four. The us put aside and now this request from the white house at least puts it back in action So we'll see what happens with that. The sos is not going away. Under joe biden's administration. Space technology is one point. Four billion a thirty percent increase is the biggest single increases as far as large categories This funds technology development for some projects. I was not familiar with some actually putting them in the show notes because there are fascinating one is deep space orbital communications this is using lasers to communicate between the spacecraft and ground It can be much faster as point to point. Got to work out signal to noise stuff of the atmosphere but a proof of concept of this is supposed to launch in twenty twenty two and so there's five hundred and two million dollars set aside for it and a couple of things to get across. Finish line lasers jason. Can you do a laser sound of it. You could probably do a pretty good later. Sound which a. Come on another podcast. Those those are like space lasers space laser strew. Yeah no there's also one that man. I thought about you and i read about this. The low earth orbit flight test of an inflatable decelerate. Her loft lost. Id loved. Id like face. I it is but you log in by pointing your phone at your fancy apartment. 'cause loft loft did because it's like a creature that lives in a loft the lofted like the lofton monster except it's a lofted lives in a loft so we just finished speaking about the james webb where it has to fold itself like a piece of origami to a top rocket and that causes it leads to either spacecraft there a set size or ones that have to unfold enfold think about going to other destinations like mars or maybe even venus and titan according to this article you have the issue of slowing down in the atmosphere being very difficult because the atmosphere in these places is very thin venus than at the top and then it gets crushingly heavy. But you would. Ideally have a way to break through the atmosphere with a larger surface. So it can be. It can be More arab breaking and less. Reliant on things like supersonic parachutes and This program looks at using an inflatable error. Shell to to basically be a heat shield so it can locks folded up and then it can inflate and expand way bigger than the spacecraft or the rover the land that is protecting and use more surface to slow down against the atmosphere. It's this is one of those things like saying. That's really simple. I'm sure i'm practice. It's not but boy. What a what a good idea. We see these people people come up with these wild ideas and eventually it's like well. Can i get some funding for this because we need to actually see if this if this works because there are all sorts of things that start out as outlandish ideas that end up being being good ideas like you know to try to describe how we land on mars to anybody. Yeah the sky crane. it's like. Are you kidding me. And it's like no that's what we do. We have this whole thing. That sort of has jets and it drops down on ropes and then leaves Or before that the one that was like an inflatable ball and bounced around like what what camping worked So you gotta you gotta keep testing. Also things like electric propulsion solar sails right. There's all sorts of things that are like theoretically possible but you do need to try them out and see if they actually will make sense. So yeah bring it on inflatable heat shields love it like inflatable things in space stephen. I know it's because it's a cramped in those rockets but once you're in space you literally have unlimited space. You just gotta get up there and then let it all hang out so therefore it. The dream of the expandable module never really dies. There's also in this section of the budget. Two hundred eighty seven million four small business innovation research and technology transfer that's a mouthful but it is to drive investment in small business and spur economic growth. So this is the part. One of the many parts of nasa that is intertwined with all sorts of different congressional districts businesses. Awhile back we came across a list of vendors for artists. And there's one in every state one probably in your town because they're just everywhere they are everywhere on purpose. It makes it really hard to kill when everyone's backyard is affected. A seven point nine billion for nasa science programs. This is up. Nine percent were twenty one This is funding the development.

"Thank you to technologies for spotting space junk and supporting liftoff and oliver latham. We're getting towards the end of the road for the development of the james webb space telescope. That is very famously way over budget and way over schedule by billions and billions of dollars and years and years but close to the finish line. So i thought it'd be a good time to check in because it's getting ready to kind of go quiet for a while before the launch later this year in may nasa's j. teams went through the beginnings of the final testing for the satellite so This infrared telescope has to fit in the top of a rocket but it needs to unfold like a flower once. It's out in space and that is a very complex and turns out expensive thing to do. They have tested a couple of times. The the unfolding process to make sure that that's all smooth that has this The the material for the solar shield and for the telescope itself. None of that can be torn or damaged during this so it's a very fragile option and That testing of the the big six point five meter mirror where it expands and locks up in a place that That all has gone well. So that's gotten its final check mark of approval before launch which is fantastic. Now engineers are moving onto the few final test so they have to radiator assemblies that help keep the observatory cool so that deal with. James webb is a hot side and a cold side right. And you have to keep the The cold side facing out because it's infrared telescope and the one reason it is it is at the grange point to is out past the moon at trails us in orbit around the sun With this giant sunshield is to keep that side of the spacecraft. Cool to keep the heat all on one side these radiator assemblies help with that. The multi layered Thermal protection also helps with that these big like solar blankets that unfold. So they're gonna test extending those extending the big tower on the telescope. And once all that's done it's gonna be put in a shipping container and sailed over to her down to south america. Were you mentioned just a second ago right. That europe doesn't have launched places in europe because you can't launch overpopulated areas and you've got to be in certain parts of the world to get certain parts of low earth orbit and beyond. They're not really saying when or where it will be shipped like the route because they don't want it to be bothered by pirates article. I read like looking out for nagged bugged. Yeah heckled maybe you ought to be hanging out of here. Pirates beat it pirates. Beat it get out of here. So that's all the details that are all private but at some point it will end up ready to go and that starts a a series of events to prepare it for launch and so there's a fifty five days of work between it arriving and it being Being launched and a lot of that has to do with getting it into the Into the faring. The rocket last minute tests that sort of thing things you would imagine. You can't just roll up and launch. The next day takes a little while to get there. Nasa expects to have the telescope rate shit by the end of july. So if you count ford in your calendar that really pushes this launch past the the initial initial date. That was like ten years ago but the most recent date of october thirty first. That was the date that was set last year for launch It's gonna be november. Maybe even possibly early december depending on how all of that goes also an issue With the the booster at so using the area on five and it has been grounded for sm almost nine months. There's an issue with the payload ferrings but that has been address. There's actually two launches of the new fairing designs scheduled before the james webb. So hopefully that won't be an issue here. But it's all very james webb that here at the last minute there are still things to be dealt with and possible Extensions on the schedule. It feels like we're really in the end game. Went like this is this is everything is happening as it would if this was really going to happen so this is pretty great. You know. I hope for no pirates and nobody bump nobody bump it very gentle sees easy now everybody be careful. Nobody sneeze around it. Just be careful. We just got to get this thing onto the rocket and off of the planet police. I won't talk a little bit about the time line. After launch within the first four weeks it will undergo the unfolding of it self again. The they've been testing the thing that makes this telescope so complex and expensive to build at the and that's at lagrange point to which images the second that goes beyond the moon trails us in orbit around the sun so stable position thanks to gravitational and orbital science and math and engineering. That people have done. You just put something in lagrange point and it basically just stays with you the whole time. It's great within two to three months instruments we powered on that will start a series of testing to make sure everything is is good and as long as it is. They expect to be making observations six months after launch and so if this launches november december of twenty one sometime about a year from now we'll be seeing initial image initial data from james webb. That that's pretty cool. It is very exciting to be here in the game. I said yeah i'm excited. Its this this is great. Like the i read this thing. We didn't put in preflight checklist about how there's going to be a a hubble style.

"You know just as doing polar orbits is a different thing than kind of regular or and there's a lot of good things about having satellite in a polar orbit because you can cover like every inch of ground of the earth over a short period of time because the earth rotates under your satellite. It's great Continental europe in general has just not been good at launching things into space from continental europe. I mean geographically speaking like its european space agency has a very busy launch site in french guiana but that is in south america people that is on the northern coast of south south america. It is not in europe. It is and you know every time they learn something. I'm reminded that. France still has a vestige of colonial france in south america. It's interesting a. I think the only one i think they're islands but like this is like literally french territory in in south america in any event leaving south america. Aside site that we're talking about is in karuna sweden. This is the northernmost city in sweden. It's got about seventeen thousand people who live there But in terms of around the launch site which is outside of town Basically if there is a fa- fallout from a failed launch. Just gonna hit you know trees and maybe you'll disturb some reindeer but that's about it. There is extreme. Northern sweden karinna is an old mining town in fact fund. Here's a fun fact. They're slowly going to move the entire town about three kilometers to the east because the mine all the tunnels under the earth have caused the the entire town to sink. Now what you want no. It's not great. It's not great Other european countries are also working on launch sites portugal. The uk noor way. Sweden seems to be the furthest along. Obviously one of the advantages of the site is that the further away from the equator. You are the easier. It is to launch to a polar orbit so you can save energy by launching from something like this site in sweden versus say from vandenberg in california. Where you're you're you know you know. Further south not like right by the equator but further south and northern sweden above the arctic circle for sure and. then. I just didn't know all the stuff. The seventeen thousand person town. Karuna northernmost city in sweden but not only that the swedish institute of space physics is there. There is a space school. That's like the magnet school for gifted Teenagers in in in northern sweden. I guess there's university there. They've got space engineering program. So basically karuna is space central for sweden. And if you like if you're living in warmer climate of of sweden you're down by like mamo or something like that where you're like right over by by Denmark and you really are into space. They're like off to the arctic circle with you that's right and also if you're there in the winter and why would you be my god. They have ice hotel so they one of those things where they build a hotel out of ice and you can stay on the ice rooms and stuff. We've got something with it and you can see the northern lights. And all of that stuff i would probably prefer to go there in the in the summer myself me. Too young like one of these pictures just as a reindeer walking through the space center. It's fantastic. they don't care so anyway. Maybe we'll get some interesting satellite launches from northern sweden. That would be fun. And that's that's what's going on in sweden. I had no idea. Yeah me neither. The international space station is going to be busy. We've been talking about this with commercial crew and everything else going on but space tourism and space. Entertainment are up and coming. We've talked about some of this happening in the us We talked about tom. Cruise supposedly working on a project with axiom. Space and spacex and nasa. Shoot a film on the station But this other stuff going on what else is going on. Yeah well so yeah space tourism. We talked about and there's gonna be a lot of that probably coming soon but a space entertainment. I think is a little different category. And there's like three things going on here to keep your your eye on on the first is that russia is apparently Sending on a soyuz to the iss an actress and a director where they're going to shoot footage for a film that they're making. I think it's about like an injured astronaut. And they send a doctor to care for the injured astronaut or something like that. I don't know but that's that's the premise. Here it's also like wouldn't it be cool to shoot a movie on the international space station and that's kinda. I think the real premise So but this actually has effects on on astronauts and cosmonauts because to i 's crew members mark van deny the american and pietra dubroff from the russian space agency. They came up to the iss on msn eighteen soyuz capsule. But what's going to happen is the actress and director are gonna launch on nineteen the next soyuz capsule. They're gonna dock stay a week shoot footage. And then they'll do. The ms eighteen return mission with msa team commander all levinsky and So doobov and venda high. We'll have to wait around the basically their mission is extended at the iss. I'm sure they don't mind but it will be a longer mission than it might have been otherwise because they will then ride back on m. s. nineteen so they get an extra soyuz cycle out of this. Because that's how you get people up to the station for a week right. Is they go up. And then they come back down and So if you're shuttling people on off the iss you can't use those seats because they'll need to take the seat immediately back down so Interesting thing that is just an effect of this Shooting of a movie at the iss also on the reality tv side. The discovery channel announced that they're doing a show called who wants to be an astronaut. Which culminates in a spacex x capsule that will be going to the iss. It's unclear. i think this is going to be an axiom flight. One of the commercial axiom flights and axiom space has has basically bought a crew dragon missions and they want to go to the iss obviously again for a short period of time like a week but there are only as detailed here before they're only a couple of places to dock with the international docking adapter. And you've got crew dragon cargo dragon and you also potentially got boeing going there and so you've gotta time it where there's room for a spacecraft to dock for a week and then leave But those are going to happen. Almost certainly axiom is planning a couple of missions. And i've got a little more about axiom. Second mission in a bit but discovery channel is definitely one of the one of the Plan participants here in the ideas. Yeah you win a game show and you get to go to the s for a week and then so that's two and then the third one is what you mentioned. Which is tom cruise. We don't actually know what's up with that time. There was a story about how tom cruise was planning a movie. That would include scenes shot in in a capsule and at the.

Hackett joined his always my coast. Mr jason snell. Hi steven how are you. I'm good jason. We're back on more night One of these days. I'm telling you one of these days. We're going to go see like a rocket launch or something. I i'm all for it. Liftoff live special. Ucs near rocket taking off right. I was thinking we wouldn't do it. During the launch. That would be interesting. we could. We could just like four minutes in. There's a launch and everybody goes wu and then we continue with the peng like. Oh yeah okay next item. Preflight checklists yes. Yeah florida's a long way to go. But i have done that. It's coming up ten years by the way ten years since the last flight of the space shuttle and i was at launch. And that's july so very soon we're going to get to that last The marking ten years since the shuttle program shutdown. I saw a tweet today that today. June first is the tenth anniversary of the last endeavor flight. So we're we're right at the end of it Yeah i was just thinking twenty eleven it just was just i was just there and now it's actually just a long time ago so i'm i'm for another launch. That was good. I'll see another works for me all right. Should we dive into our Preflight checklist before we launch this thing before the scandal. Let's do it mars mars. There's stuff that's what there is. Their stuff is your on lander or rover. I guess Rolled down off. Its ramp yellow ramp. It's kind of cute little ramp like Mars this way and it rolled down and is now on the surface of mars for a that was may twenty second that it did that. It's gonna be a plan mission of ninety days. I don't know whether china when it says ninety days if it means ninety days or if it's like The nasa rovers where they say ninety days and they mean for years. I don't know. I honestly don't know But they ninety days. It's what's on the rover. They're a bunch of cameras There's some ground penetrating radar which is fun. There's a weather station. The magnetometer and a spectrometer all sorts of our science in the same vein as the as the other mars rovers in order to just gather more information about what the heck is going on and went on in the past on mars there utopia plenty show which is actually where i think the viking landed and it's was presumably at some point during a wetter period and morris history underwater so an interesting place to go and look and do some geology. And for the record. There are four missions. Currently active on mars In addition to your is the insight lander and then the perseverance and curiosity rovers. of course. they're still rolling around as well and that that doesn't even in count like any helicopters. I didn't include them. Because it's really part of perseverance if you if you ask me. And they're not always on mars sometimes. Sometimes it's fine bubble sometimes helicopters or not on mars. It's good it's good use. blew my mind anyway. So it's off and will i'm sure hear more about the jurong as as it rove's around utopia plenty show a half some hashtag space drama for you. I saw this this morning. You were your relaying. The space drama which got even more dramatic. Who would've thought that the astronomy picture of the day. The most comforting sleepy and and really old part of the space internet would be the source of space drama. But it happened. Yeah it has been around. I don't even know how long a really long time the archives on their website go back to twenty fifteen. But i'm sure it's longer than that. Oh since nineteen ninety five there go. This is the one log page just html. I love it. Oh no it hasn't changed all that time. It is the same thing that it was back. Then i love it. I used to go. It was used to be unlike my page of links. My home page that. I had of those early days of the web like it was a it was a great a great find. And it's still kicking if you if you don't go to you should everybody because it's fun but this is twitter account. I think they have an instagram account. As well so you can. You can get a bunch of ways. I i guess you could use twitter instagram. Or you could go to a pod dot nasa dot gov and just see the page that was built in nineteen ninety-five and hasn't been updated since then old school this. There's this picture is of orion and a has light streaks across the image and where the drama comes in. is that the original tweet. Which is done. By robot titled the photo starlink orion starlink. Of course being spacex is ever growing collection of internet satellites. And there's been a lot of discussion angst around the reflectively of those and getting in the way of earth-based observatories because they They live this guy when go through them and then went and actually defied the explanation of the photo saying that. This is actually this. Actual image is from some satellites and high geosynchronous orbit from december twenty nineteen that this image doesn't have starlink satellites in it but it's a good opportunity to talk about and reflect on the issues that starlink and others The concerns that they raise among astronomers. So you have people who are big space x people saying that. This was drumming up complaints about Starlink on purpose. And i don't think that's what they meant but it's been very dramatic certain parts of the internet today about this. Yeah i i'm are. We surprised that. No that people who like spacex might be offended by anything that might possibly besmirch spacex. I'm not. I'm not this. We you and i do a bunch of stuff about apple and You know so. We know how this is. Which is there were companies that have fans and some fans will not brook any even remote suggestion of anything negative about the company that they're a fan of and and ulama companies collect those people probably the same people but maybe they're different. Who knows anyway. Yeah it's also known goal though like you should satellites making a point about satellites. General probably didn't need to call it starlink especially since it wasn't ups like don't don't do that yet. That's the error on the part of the editor of a pod but You know it is what it is an opportunity to discuss this. I don't think it's a opportunity to burn. Or nasa burning one of its partners necessarily There's a lot of comments about it. Well it's easy to filter it out and stuff like that is true for some types of observations but not others again. It's an opportunity to discuss the issue. It's not a. It's not a reason to burn somebody at stake. Well yeah i. I just checked and it's not good. You're right good. Yeah but it's the internet so everything's cranked to eleven. What is we doing. I i saw this. I had not seen this new york times article but i. i think it's awesome. What's going on stephen. What's is sweden. not doing. Is the real question. What aren't they doing. they're doing everything. Sweden's doing everything so okay. This is a fun story.

Unusual Perennials With Far Reaches Farm

"I'm kind of overwhelmed at the possibilities that you have in your list But i did see one sort of like theme ish thing that really caught my eye and recently my friend can drew's and i were talking on the show about some favorite of our early native spring. Perennials were both eastern gardeners. And we both love things with surveys. Arching stems like solomon's seal and such and you have a lot of things like that i think and i don't know if that's intentional. Or if you're obsessed with that too but can we talk about some of them like the polygon items and my anthem and you've you larrea. I die spor homes and whatever. I saw a lot of these things. Tell me about plants that look like that. Let's talk about that. Yeah yeah yeah all of those that whole kind of group. I mean they're like the disarms are now you know been separated out from the into a different family than Pulling games or solomon sales but but we kinda regard them as the sort of fulfilling the same function in the garden. They have the same visual Impact and appeal really and And we're just we are just smitten by them and and and for good reason. There's fear other things that Offer that In the shade garden Solomon's seals in particular Have there's there's over. Eighty species of solomon seals and within each species and their diversity is incredible. I mean it goes from the arctic circle down to tropical rainforest in vietnam and they can be. We've actually pitched a tent on flicking them hooker. I at thirteen thousand feet in eastern bhutan and that only gets an inch or two high in that really short alpine turf whereas We've got political. Tim did in our shade garden. And it's not done reaching its full mature size and we've been as tall as fifteen feet so that's pretty awesome. Thank goodness textiles for them and it said you have thirty one. Different polygamy items. And i was like and then you had an article on the website. I'll give a link with the transcript to it about one that i think it's cinemas The species is king knee. Ainum or juan neum or something It's like a twelve footer. With orange flowers that was surprising. Yeah that's really really nice thing. It's one that had been the had been regarded as a flagging kingham. It's it's distinct in that it has leaves. That are different than what we would see on on on the east coast for example Heard the leaves are kind of following this stem and their little alternate sort of things like every other step stepped up. The leaves up the stem but in keenum who aim vietnam again Their what's called a tesla arrangement of lease or their little like spokes on a wheel in quarrels ranked up the stem. And that's that's very distinctive right. Can you ain't them You know crashing. You know if it gets like ten twelve or even like in vietnam and fifteen feet. How do you. How do you keep those upright. And they've got a clever little adaptation not the end of each leaf tip at hooks into a little hook and it will actually hold onto surrounding branchless and of shrubs and so we have going up through having going up to really thin twigged shabby dogwoods and that can kind of self trellis themselves that way.

As mining causes roads to crack and houses to collapse, a Swedish city is moved

"Thirty years ago a mining town in sweden looked like running out of jobs. The question what could they do to reinvent their industry so they asked a very clever scientist. She answered build a space station and they did. The town was killing and by the way it's within the arctic circle now the space station up and running and doing fine. The next challenge is moving the whole city. And that's what the sign show is about today. And how you move buildings and thousands of people and do so in the lapland. Guide is an homes who lives in sweden and once reported for sbs and there are many stakeholders involved in extraordinary project of moving the city of corona the iron ore mine elke ab municipality the government the politicians the urban planners the architects and other experts and not least the people and all their say but there is one major participant. That is absolutely instrumental in making. The kid and i moved project at all possible. And that's the royal institute of technology in store co. and that's where you come in professor cars. Yes i've been a professor at the institute for a very long time and by chance i met the mail you care not in two thousand twelve and we started discussing urban planning and then i suddenly got an invitation to move to cure now to take responsibility for making a plan for the new. The city had to be relocated due to the fact that the iron or production demanded removal of the city. How did it all start them. Start with the mayor and what she saw as urgent was to make a plan that met the expectations of the residents. Because when you are forcing people to leave their homes they expect something. Really good as a replacements. You said you have to work taking something very attractive and so you are in a very short period of time because we are in russia time wise and then what happened. I'm urban planning urban planner. All my life doing theoretical work in this was. I just couldn't say no to so i immediately pack my bags and move here now. Yes but how did you decide that that was necessary. Did you decide that. He wasn't enough sitting in your office. No no theoretical stuff. No now the challenge to do this all in practice and doing it in reality of course demands are in place to meet was so important to meet with all these stakeholders not least to meet and socialize with the residents of care in order to really make sure that would i create in. My plan was something that met their expectations about the out for me on the new city. How was it to move from a capital in sweden. And your job to small town above the arctic circle t different worlds different two different worlds. I mean the first thing was that whether is so different. So i came up. I was met by snow. Snow snow and darkness. This was the winter and it was freezing cold. And he's a little town very few restaurants very few cultural activities. How did that feel. It felt strange but immediately realized that in order to make this feasible and enjoying myself. I need to socialize with people and people took me for snow. Mobile rides to out fishing of walking in the mountains and became a part of cultural life in catering. I gather that you quiet. Almost rock star status after a while now and not drugstore status but became very familiar. Face here's the guy who is removing the with any animosity from people. in general. the first reaction was here. Comes this guy from stockholm. He's going to make our planet size that he's awesome academic with provides Even more skepticism. But as i met with people is behind our dialogues about new city and they saw plans for the new city merging. They became more and more positive positive. So walking from the office to my home recalls a twenty minute walk. I could very often meet with. Oh the new seat the town square. We saw the town square. It looks so nice or people say oh wonderful that you're rains parking for snow as we need that

I mean, why would we put our money into saving important things like medicine? Okay. Yeah, The world's not worth surviving. If there's no Orioles at the end of what I mean, Like what? I'm going to eat dry Oreos. No water. That's terrible Thought of this. Actually, The Ori oval also has been stocked with vials of powdered milk, which only need to have a small amount of snow added to them so you can use it to dunk your Oreos in the nuclear winter.

Why forest fires in Siberia, Russia threaten us all

"In Siberia have been releasing record amounts of greenhouse gases, scientists say contributing to global warming. The fires, fueled by abnormally high temperatures have been burning as far north as the Arctic Circle. Moscow correspondent Steve Rosenberg has travelled to the remote Yakutia region in north eastern Russia to gauge the effects of climate change, both on local communities on on the planet. I've got a helicopter flying across northern Siberia. Not far from the Arctic Circle. Look down below, I could see forest stretching forever. But rising from the trees. Our rooms of thick smoke. Because record high temperatures here. Fueling Suresh spies. And that has implications but only for people who live in Siberia for the global climate. Thiss part of Russia is called. It is a huge region. Five times the size of France. Because of all its forests, people here cool. You could hear the lungs of the planet. Well, Judging by all the smoke, I can see our planet has a big problem. Like on the ground. We switch to an off road Russian bag that feels as tough as a tank. Plough through the thick undergrowth. Suddenly out of the window, I see a charred wasteland. Fire has reduced large and silver birch tow ash. We continue on foot with a group of forest Rangers. The range of Valentin tells me is getting hotter and hotter here every year, he spends nearly all his summers now fighting Forest vice When he's not firefighting. He's out hunting in Yakutia before a hunt, Valentin says. Traditionally, we light a campfire. We put pancakes and fermented horse milk by the flames as sacrifices to the spirit of the tiger to make the hunt go well. So a small fire is a source of good. It's the big ones that are bad for you was all right. That was Well, now we've reached a fire. It is incredibly hot here. Flames are licking the undergrowth and Dancing up the tree trunks. Sending Rooms of thick smoke into the air. This is going on across Siberia, a region which is now trapped in a vicious cycle of climate change, because rising temperatures Mean dr Forests and more forests fires like this one and more fires means more carbon emissions being pumped into the atmosphere. Andme or climate change. Two Rangers try to put out the flames using small water pumps. But as soon as one fire is out another sparks It's not just the visible burning. That's a problem. Underground fire is boring. The permafrost ground, which in places has been frozen for tens of thousands of years. That's releasing even Mohr greenhouse gases. Further north in another Siberian forest, local firefighter Even Zahara is filling his water pump from a lake. He's got a shovel, too, to smother any hint of flame recently even helped put out a big fire here that was threatening his village. They're fashionable. I never saw a summer like it even says we had no rain at all. The dry grass was like gunpowder, but it's permafrost Thaw ring that worries me. Most. Our village could end up underwater.

Some Dinosaurs Probably Nested in Arctic

"Those vicious predatory dinosaurs that tended to be fairly small as six to nine ten feet. Long snout to tail there. Certainly in the Jurassic. Park movies the things that terrorize people Anthony Fiorello a paleontologist at southern Methodist University in Dallas Texas for more than two decades. Now, Fiorello has been digging a dinosaur fossils, hundreds of miles north of the Arctic Circle in Alaska. So one of the fundamental questions about dinosaurs in Alaska. In the ancient Arctic is, did they live there all year round did they migrate? How did they get their a recent discovery sheds light on those questions this fossil that's the subject study is a baby dinosaur, the baby predatory dinosaur, and it is a baby. It's not just juvenile and given the size estimate of this thing. This probably was not far from where the nesting ground was. So this is the first physical proof. Alley some dinosaurs nested in the ancient Arctic some of the first Arctic dinosaur remains ever found were discovered back in the nineteen sixties in Svalbard, an archipelago north of mainland Norway. Since then researchers have theorized, the dinosaurs must have migrated to avoid deeply cold winters but Fiorello says this new discovery disproves that idea for you know the classic stereotype for dinosaurs is that had been. that they were living in sub tropical environments oftentimes, somewhat swampy if you look at various artwork over generations, that was quite often how these dinosaurs were reconstructed. In reality the climate north of Alaska's Brooks range seventy million years ago was similar to what we might see today in Portland, Oregon or Calgary Alberta. Certainly a place where. Things were cooler. Or who were capable of being cool at times but certainly warmer than the the Arctic today, the fossil find is a piece of jawbone with a tooth from Dromaeosaur Fiorello and colleagues unearthed it along the banks of the call. They'll river not too far from the Arctic Ocean. The bone is the first non dental evidence of that species in the far north the researchers report their discovery in the journal plus one. Of course questions remain. How did they do what they did because even with the warmer temperatures at the latitude, the thieves dinosaurs were living, which is at least seventy degrees north if not even farther nor. Do they endure long periods of light and dark, and that's where the research will go next for now Fiorello says the new discovery proves that these giant reptiles were well adapted to the highly seasonal environments of the late Cretaceous that we still experience today in the Arctic.

Flat Earthers: What They Believe and Why

"This is scientific. American science talk posted on March. Twenty seven twenty twenty. I'm Steve Mirsky. I'm going to let my guest introduce himself in a moment because he does a better job than I could. Midway through the following discussion. We'll take a break for a short segment sponsored by the Calveley prize with Caltech Planetary Astronomer. Michael Brown who has done groundbreaking work though solar system breaking work on the Kuyper belt and its largest members. His segment is not unrelated to what will be talking about now. It's not about corona virus. You'll find some parallels to how some people are reacting to corona virus. Buckle up so I'm Michael Marshall and I'm the project director of the good thinking society which is a charity based in the UK the whole purpose charities to promote science to challenge pseudoscience. So we'll do work Ford Science Education and then another PA the work that we do. The bulk of my work is to find ideas. That aren't backed by evidence and find people who are promoting those ideas find people who are buying into those ideas and to explore them and figure out if anything can be done to prevent people being confused by them Hound by the misled by them and those kinds of things. So I spent a lot of time looking at things like alternative cancer kills and the people who promote those and alternative medicine spent a lot my time going to see people who say they can talk dead. Oku can do faith healing and then another part of my time is spent token people who believe in unusual ideas and kind of proponents. And that's how I came across the flat. Earth world is through my slightly odd a hobby at the time before I was working. Fulltime as as a skeptic is a hobby of mine to be in rooms filled if he who disagree with me to just understand what brings people to ideas that. I would look at and say well. This can't be true. These kind of fringe and extreme and unusual beliefs. What brings people to believe them? And what what? What kind of path leave people there will? Evidence supports supports that position in their minds. And how do they engage with the world with that worldview and try and have conversations? Podcast where I talked to people who have kind of fringe beliefs and instead of having a conversation that a lot of people have if they are a skeptic about something and they're talking to believe where you shout at them and tell them never home and point out all the evidence and tell you gets into a volatile discussion sometimes instead of that. I've tried to have a civil and polite chat to try and explore the gap between us. So I don't believe in this idea of yours but I'm reading to figure out why I don't believe it. Why do so? Let's have a conversation? So have these kind of civil discussions and that's kind of how I came across That the flatter theory and the idea that there are people walking around today. Who think well this flat. This is really interesting and serendipitous that were sitting here because I knew that there were some flatter. Thor's out there and I just thought it was kind of strange and funny and about a week ago I discovered a friend of mine who is very well educated. She got a doctorate in biochemistry and She has a sister who's also very intelligent and very well educated and my friend told me that her sister is a flatter and that her sister is very indignant about the idea that We don't take them seriously and she said something to the effectiveness is hearsay. That we're getting for me right now. That will you know if you looked at the evidence. Then you'd know that what you've been told isn't true. So all of a sudden became fascinated with the flat earth people and then Just on twitter and I had I had been a follower verve yours until I saw this tweet that somebody I follow must've re tweeted that you had just given a talk in Edinburgh where I have been and So I reached out to you and it turns out you live in Liverpool and here I am in Liverpool today. So that's why we're here talking so tell me what do the flat Earth People Think and why do they think it so to your packet question that will bit because it's very easy for us to see the flat? Earth Movement is one singular cohesive movement and. That's how I I thought about it when I first came across in two thousand thirteen when I came across the flutter society in the UK. And so I had a conversation with the vice president of the Flat Earth Society and I assumed you probably have in your mind that people who believe the world is flat thing that the world's disk and in the center you've got the Arctic Circle then you've got all the continents of the world are splayed out to fill the circle. Antarctica is like the edge of disk. But I found out when I first spoke to flatter societies that not everyone in the world has that version of the world and the heads. Some do believe it's a disc but others believe that. Yes the Arctic Circle in the middle the landmasses around it and then on top Around the edge but instead of it being discreet disc some people believe in fact Antactica just on forever and all directions and so they believe that the earth is actually an infinite plane in all directions that bisects reality which is a really lovely idea. What does that mean by? Second three dollars so it will go on. North South East West go on forever and there is the above and the below. But there's no way of getting from the top to the bottom because it's just infinity of all ice in all directions forever so there's no way of getting below the earth and so this was when. I first came across the floor of moving in two thousand thirteen. This quite vociferous debate that was going on and the website of the three in the flat. Earthers yeah it was. It was quite a schism really and so they'd the society. The the time was largely a forum where they would bring forth that proofs of one version this theory or another and I also think there's another schism going on in the movement at the time Which is between one side which people who genuinely really believed the world was flat and the other side which after he did not believe it but enjoyed intellectual pursuit of arguing a position than you false and so they would find quite esoteric off the wall proofs that most people wouldn't think of and so when I first came across it in two thousand thirteen there are people waiting into these arguments who believe the world is round but had never thought about it the fall but just assumed innocent of arrogant way that they must know better than anybody who's thought about it and come to a different conclusion and so they were stumping into these arguments saying well what about photos of the earth from space and what about this and what about ships going with the rise in thinking. Well this is the Gotcha but not realizing that those are the first things they thought about that. They thought the world approved walls around. And therefore it's probably likely that people who think the world is flat had the same idea and yet they're still flat earth So at least in their mind they must have a good answer to that. The people believe the world was round in these arguments. Didn't have 'cause they'd never scrutinize the idea. They rejecting enough and so what was happening. Was I think to a degree? The part of the schism that were just having fun and move very well. The world wasn't flat but just enjoyed the pursuit of doing that. They will winning those arguments of people who are coming in and arrogantly assuming that they could answer everything and in winning those arguments they were really converting even more people who really believed it. And so you had this kind of effect where we saw spiral out of control a little bit. But I think it it wasn't viral in the way that in two thousand thirteen and a as a in the way that it was in two thousand sixteen in two thousand seventeen. I'm think PA that is because that ISA teric off wall version of proofs could be quite complicated to get your head around so for example if you have the disc version the world and the infinite plane version both muddles suffer from an inability to explain gravity. You don't have the spherical mass united central mass of a central point pulling it all two to one point So it's very difficult to explain. Gravity neither one models but these people who are doing kind of East Tarik arguments are saying well what gravity gravity and accelerate falls towards the ground. Think nine point. Eight meters per second. Squared accelerates downwards. They said that is identical to a world in which the ground accelerates upwards to meet you and so when you let go of something it isn't that it's accelerating downwards that it's the grounds accelerating up to meet it Sephora relativity and that's this is exactly where they come to you so people then say when if ground is if the earth is an infinite in all directions that by sex reality and is accelerating open at nine seconds and always has been since the dawn of time. You'd hit a problem which would be the speed of light. You can't go fast so people don't have a Gotcha for this. And so the people who were putting forth esoteric the wall trobisch arguments would say well look at Einstein's theory of relativity as you approach light speed time itself slows down and the mats in their head works back out again so yes beginning. Quick time getting slower and we can account for gravity in that way. And that's quite a complicated auditing Enron. And so I think the fact that these people were winning arguments was getting converting some people movement but the way in which they were winning them were keeping people away from the movement because they were quite complex ideas to you. Couldn't stick them on a mean as you can these days. Here's a picture of the earth. You couldn't explain all that stuff about the relatively proving gravitate infinite plane version of the world. So I think it was a limiting factor going on and that's why when I first came across the free movement it was probably still pretty small. Pretty unknown I've been given talks about pseudoscience for the last five six plus years and I've mentioned that I came across the Flat Earth. Moving and people would always say to me this. Nobody who actually believes that nobody actually doesn't really exist. That people having fun with stay quite small and then in. Twenty fifteen in two thousand sixteen a couple of things happened that really ignited a movement and it was the publishing of two videos on Youtube video series on Youtube. One I believe was Eric. Debate tuned approves the Spinning Globe. And the other was mark sergeants. Fourteen videos in his letter clue series.

"So. Something something stark and profound memorable. Like that. Could almost be kinda kinda gimmicky or cheesy to try to approximate, you know, with a triathlon or Spartan or something along those lines. But yeah, absolutely agree. We're missing that. It's very interesting that you bring that up with marriage. I hadn't heard it framed in that context before. But you're right. If if marriage were more liturgical ritual Listrik, we'd probably see lower divorce rates, and and if if particularly and this might sound stereotypical or sexist to say, but particularly if a man's coming of age remark by something hard because when you think about it a woman a win when she has her first period. She kind of does have that identify -able moment when she has become a woman right that that identifiable coming of age. I don't know that men go through something similar in terms of an actual identifiable rite of passage if we were circumcised in this day and age many cases, it was. When we were very small child or baby. We don't remember it at all. So you can't really depend upon that as being a market right of passage. But the the other thing that I think about is is the fact that it could be okay. This is just a thought experiment to have multiple rights of passage as you age to to to occasionally. And I I love this idea. It's really only way I stay fit is. I always have something on the calendar. That scares me, you know, from from fitness or from a physical standpoint. Like right now, I'm supposed to go up for for two week hunt for grizzly and all she and caribou in the Arctic circle. And I plan on taking no food with me. That will be a bow hunt. I will rely upon fish and plant foraging to get through that. And that's not until August of two thousand twenty it's gonna be a while before I go out and do that. But that means that during this upcoming year two thousand nineteen all need to work on my Arctic survival skills will need to work on my fire making skills need to work on my on my hunting fishing on my plant. For defamation for that region of the world. Like, there's a lot that goes into preparing for something. Really? You're going to go hunt a grizzly bear. Yes. Yes. I am not opposed to people going out and occasionally doing hard things like that. I just think we need to strike a balance like, you know, people feel like they gotta go out to, you know, an ironman traff on every month or something like that. I, you know, I think that that's that's this little excessive. So ultimately, though. Yeah. I mean, I think that that a right of passage is something that it's never too late to identify and go through and that it's it's something that a lot more lot more people should tap into.
