Biden Is Blaming Everyone but Himself for His Gas Crisis
"According to upstream online dot com, in a letter sent in June to a list of companies including ExxonMobil Chevron Shell, Phillips 66 Marathon Petroleum of BP, Biden chastised the companies. He said at a time of war, historically high refinery profit margins being passed directly onto American families are not acceptable. But Chevron called for policies that underpin continued investment in oil and gas rather than the obstructive approach that Joe Biden has been using thus far. The oil companies then sent a written statement out, they said, we want to underscore the U.S. refineries are running at high utilization rates. Refinery capacity expansion is a long-term proposition given permitting engineering design capital cost estimates and equipment procurement. So the idea that they can just ramp up production is not true. But Joe Biden has to find somebody to blame for his own bad policy. And so, of course, he spent the last several months up to a year blaming everybody but himself. In October of 2021, remember, as of October of 2021, you were already looking at gas prices that were hovering just under three bucks and 50 cents per gallon. And so it already risen by well over a dollar under Joe Biden. At that point, Joe Biden said the gas prices would come down. They did not. Do you have a timeline for gas prices of when do you think they may start coming down? My guess is you'll start to see gas prices come down as we get by going into the winter. I mean, excuse me, in the next year, 2022. Oh, midwinter to the next. Oh. Has that been happening right now? Then Joe Biden blamed OPEC for the high gas prices. This is November of 2021. If you take a look at gas prices and you take a look at oil prices. That is a consequence of thus far. The refusal of Russia or the OPEC nations to pump more oil. Oh, by the way, there's November. That was well before the Ukraine war is blaming OPEC.

"There practices in the oil industry that are indefensible that you struggle a lot of times to defend I'm thinking about lobbyists something about other things climate change deniers like how do you deal with those personalities in your industry Well the first thing I would say francine is that BP was actually the first oil and gas company to my knowledge that in the late 90s and 1998 acknowledged that there was a link between human activity and climate change And that was John Brown and a speech in Stanford in 1998 and I had the privilege of working with John in the 2000s when he was chief executive So that's the first thing I think we're very much on record as not being a climate denier The second thing I would say is when you talk about lobbying we produce a report now I think it's every two years And what we do is we work with trade associations some of whom who lobby and we say we're going to be very transparent with you If we disagree with you and if we disagree with you consistency we will leave these three associations And I think we've left two if not three organizations already Then there is a group in the middle where we feel we have some misalignment with And we will be transparent on that And then there are those that we are aligned with So the whole thing here is to be transparent is to be upfront is to there is no hiding today as you know So we have to be transparent We want to be transparent and we want to show people here's what our positions are So when will you no longer have fossil fuel and actually I mean do you have to rebrand BP British petroleum do you have to be called something else Well I happen to think BP is a fantastic brand and I know lots of people don't maybe but I certainly do and there's a lot of people that we work with in countries all around the world that have sort of an enormous warmth towards the brand of BP and we serve over 10 million customers a day We're going to bring that up to 20 million customers very very soon We don't need to rebrand BP So you're not going to be called British energies We need to deliver We need to deliver on the plans that we laid out That's what we've got to do Year one we set direction Two we restructured Now it's about one thing One thing only delivery And we can show those people who are skeptical about whether this is all greenwashing And I can assure you if you look at what we've done in the last two years you wouldn't call this greenwashing We didn't do the biggest restructuring in our history just for greenwashing That was a very painful experience So there's an exciting new world of EVs What's your biggest concern about this What keeps you up at night when looking at EVs is it the charging where you charge how you charge how you power them Well our business is in EV charging And I'm super excited about the EV charging business So if you think about it we have a physical network of gas stations today 550 million people in the world live within 20 minutes of a BP petrol station or a BP gas station So we've this enormous asset called our physical infrastructure We're going to change that over time to ultra fast charging Today every week in the fourth quarter we're adding a 115 charge points per week We sold four and a half times more power through those chargers in 2021 than we did in 2020 It's an enormous opportunity for a company like ours It is all about fast charging That's where we're focused 150 350 kW chargers People want to know there's going to be a place where they can get a charge and get a bit of fast Right That's true And you can get a cup of coffee and a marks and Spencer sandwich in the UK which is also very very important So I'm very excited about this space We're going to lean we're accelerating our ambition It used to be 70,000 charge points Now we're up to a 100,000 We're putting more capital into it Very exciting We're in Germany We're in China We're in the UK and we're just entering fleets in America We're in early 2022 and we're going through a huge I mean we're seeing actually a huge energy crisis And a lot of analysts say this is because politicians countries even companies didn't plan for the transition Well look there's a lot of reasons as with many things in life There are a lot of reasons why we have an energy crisis today Things from weather no hydro in Brazil no hydro in Norway maintenance How much of it is the transition I think what you will see is what we've learned today is that unless we plan properly to handle both demand as well as supply then we will have a problem because if we take supply down and don't do anything with demand there's only one response which is prices go up And what I'm worried about francine and a lot of people are worried about is that that will somehow be connected to the transition and it will turn people off the transition when in fact we need to transition to accelerate So what do we need now for the transition I know there's also products that we need in making these renewables and also making these EV chargers that were not taking out of the ground fast enough We need to understand that it is a transition It is not there I said a light switch We have to move from today's system to tomorrow system And we need to remind ourselves I think you've had Mark Carney on your show here We need to remind ourselves what Mark says We need to start every meeting and say what's our objective Our objective is to drive emissions down Our objective is not to defend an ideological position about I don't want hydrocarbons If we can move from coal to gas and that reduces emissions we should do that We should do that because it's one step on the journey If we can move from diesel to biodiesel we.
"bp" Discussed on Gambling With an Edge
"Realize that you're winning. And so it'll buy you a little time, but you know, probably not as much as you would hope. Would my history of losing make me a potential BP for a team? Well, at that bash, one of the things they talked about on the panel was something they called whale flipping. And this is where you get a big losing player and use him as a beard to turn him into a winning player, and, you know, this is done in blackjack as well as in sports betting and other things. So depending on how big a losing player you were, it could be potentially attractive to use you as a BP. Yeah. But then the team would also have to trust you because you have a lot of bad habits as a recreational player. And, well, and the other thing that we, I mean, the other problem that we ran into in doing this is, you know, when you go after somebody who is very, very successful and has N is very wealthy, well, they're not used to taking orders from people, and they don't want to.
Thieves Use Remote Device to Steal Gas
"Lie. Now, maybe you might want to talk to this North Carolina gas station owner, people have been stealing gas from his station. I've been around a long while, and this is the first time I've heard of something like this. Neil is so did the owner of this gas station and what they tell me as well as the petroleum technician. They tell me that the thieves had a specialized remote pointed them at the two pumps put in the dispenser and stand-alone mode. He says at that point they filled up their tanks and drove away with free gas. But I lost a lot of money last night. It's a lot of money we lost. It's really bad. It's an unusual problem for heartache Patel owner of busy bee grocery and BP on north Main Street in high point. He says Monday night was a bizarre case of extreme gas theft. It's abnormal that about ten to 12 cars at a time. Surveillance shows it happened around ten at night after the store closed. Look at this silver car pull up to the pump, a man points a device at the machine which petroleum experts say puts the dispenser in stand-alone mode, releasing fuel without charging for
Conservative Enterprise Institute's Myron Ebell on Biden's Oil Plans
"Well, let's start off here. The hot topic right now is the leadership from behind the Biden administration has finally made it to the fact that they say we're not going to take Russian oil. We're not going to buy Russian oil right now. We had already seen that happening from shale BP, Exxon and others. Tell our listeners what that really means and then we'll expand from there because I want them to understand really the effects of this right now and how the Biden administration is using that. I think there are pluses and minuses, the fact is that Russia is the world's largest exporter of oil and gas and it produces about 7, 7 and a half million barrels a day. Some of that goes by pipeline to China, but two and a half million barrels has been out on the market and shipped by tankers. So removing those two and a half million barrels from the market is that what's happening or is the U.S. just saying it's not going to buy oil from a tanker that has Russian oil in it, but we're going to buy oil that would otherwise be going someplace else, but is now being replaced by Russian oil. So there's questions about this band. If everybody bans Russian oil, then that will remove a lot of oil from the world market and it will have to be replaced or we're going to see even higher oil prices. So there are a lot of things to try to game out here about how this is going to work because there is some spare capacity in the world oil production system. Some of it's in the United States. Some of it is in Saudi Arabia, some of its United Arab Emirates. So President Biden instead of talking to the American oil industrial and saying, hey guys, I made some mistakes. Let's sit down and see what you can do to increase production. Instead he called Saudi Arabia who wouldn't take his call because they're angry about the cell up to in the Iran
Washington Free Beacon: Biden Pressured Oil Execs to Decrease Output
"When the Washington free Beacon one of the great sights Despite reassurances from The White House that it is doing nothing to discourage oil companies from opening new drill sites President Joe Biden's allies in Congress just months ago pressured oil executives did decrease outputs Because of climate change raising questions about the Democrat party strategy to lower prices for consumers I might add That they're slip and fall ambulance chasing hate America lawyers have done the same thing They sue them bring civil suits stockholder shoots suits class action suits In order to try and force them to adopt quote unquote climate change policies In late October for example the House oversight and reform committee controlled by the Democrats of course Called in the CEOs of Exxon BP shall and Chevron To explain what steps they're taking to produce less oil and less scarce With representative Hank Johnson Democrat of Georgia nitwit alleging that quote the world can't wait any longer At the time gas prices were hovering around a ten year high This October Meanwhile Biden said this week that his administration's policies are not holding back domestic energy production echoing comments from press secretary Psaki who said that federal policies aren't limiting the supplies of oil and gas before mentioning thousands of unused pre approved oil and gas drilling leases
The Market Got Hammered Today
"Is pretty wild. We get a market that, let's see where we end off, but just getting hammered today, I expected that it would. In fact, Fridays turn around in the markets really shocked me, although we did, I remember reopening after 9 11 and there was kind of this pre patriotic push. I think the reality, though, here is we are in a very different world. This is very uncharted territory. We are going to be looking at a market that experiences continued downside, I would start looking for value opportunities there. I think you've got a little bit of time because I don't think that this is going to turn around overnight. Unless, unless we're really able to see some demonstrable change in terms of the inner circle of Putin's all of these sanctions, by the way, do have their effect and I'm a big believer in using financial sanctions to the best of our ability. I mean, we certainly don't want to be sending American lives, right? But if we lose a few dollars along the way, if BP has to lose its 20% stake in raw stuff, you know, I'm okay with that. And I'm okay if I'm a shareholder in BP or some of these other multi global corporate multi state corporations, global corporations, I'm okay losing a little bit of that value because I think this is just the necessary pain that we're all going to take right now. The problem of course is it is going to have an effect on the middle class and I'm going to get to that momentarily. But just in terms of the markets, you will probably see more and more volatility more and more downside in the coming days is all of this really sinks in. At some point though, it's probably going to be a buy because I am a long-term believer in America, a long-term believer in freedom. And freedom will prevail

"And repairs on oil fields. That's why today I'm releasing the U.S. long-term strategy, which presents a vision of achieving the United States goal of net zero emissions economy wide by no less than 2050. And reinforces an absolute critical nature of taking bold action with the decisive decade. If you're an oil company right now, you know more and more regulation is coming. So you might as well get out in front of it, right? That seems to be the strategy at least for oil giant BP. Last year, BP announced that they would become a net zero company by the year 2050. The company said it would cut carbon emissions across its operations and increase the money it invested into non oil and gas businesses over time. It also promised to install devices that would measure methane at all of its oil and gas processing sites. BP wanted to be the oil industry's climate champion, according to Bloomberg, but that go? Well, according to data collected from the largest oil field in the U.S., it isn't panning out. Bloomberg news analyzed data measured at the Permian Basin in West Texas over a few days and the findings were bleak, shall we say. For BP at least. BP isn't the only company active in the basin, shell, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, and Exxon use it too, which makes this the perfect opportunity to look at how big oil companies operate in comparison to each other, and BP's emissions were clearly the highest. BP emitted about 500 grams of methane per barrel of oil equivalent produced, Exxon's emissions, less than 50 grams of methane per barrel. BP was quick to respond to the findings in a statement the company said quote, using a limited dataset to draw these conclusions about BP's overall Permian methane emissions is misleading and does not provide an accurate reflection of our performance. But BP continued, we still have more to do. In a twist of oily irony, Exxon, which put up significantly lower numbers of methane than did BP has yet to commit to a net zero emission target. Exxon is trying to lower emissions, but last month when activist investors urged the company to publicly commit to a net zero target Exxon gave a flat no. Actually, an investor told Bloomberg that the response from Exxon's executive committee was, quote, that's great, but we don't know how we would get there. Exxon seems to have some idea, though, earlier this year, the company filed an application with the EPA to use airplane mounted lasers to check for leaks at oil sites. Lasers on airplanes, that's something. Tomorrow, the cop 26 conference will be over, but world leaders will still wrestle with how to regulate the oil and gas industry, and the oil and gas industry will wrestle right back. From wondering, this is business more daily. I'm your host David Brown written.

Activists Protest Shell Museum Sponsorship
"Chris before we talk about the specific actions last weekend. Can you set the context of the oil sponsorship at the science museum and recent events. Sure so there's a long history of oil sponsorship at the science museum as the energy gallery. Which a lot of people go to but some refers fl was actually designed in close collaboration with a team from ep and so when the science museum director is constantly saying there's no editorial influence or anything like that actually not an accurate picture till and at this point in time. Show is the real focus of the campaigning. Because it's the sponsor of this new exhibition of future planet on climate solutions on things like carbon capture and storage which fossil fuel companies often overstate in order to keep drilling from all oil and gas. But they're not the only one say back. The science museum opened one lab which is actually one allowed. The equitable battery and ecuador is the norwegian state oil and gas company and they have recently said. We're gonna continue increasing all out over the coming decade. The basically have no intention of getting to where we need to be to. Climate change anthon. Bp also remains a partner. The science museum is actually helping. Trading sunset Since stem education as well so the fossil fuel industry is deeply embedded in the museum and the director is very happy to defend and maintain relationships.
BP's EVP of Sustainability Giulia Chierchia on Divestments in Polluting Assets
"Potential strategy for a company in order to have their company appear to be much more. Environmentally friendly is to sell off their most polluting assets. What is to stop companies from doing that. And where do you think. There is a place for leadership in trying to make sure that that is visible in the industry to the investors. I think divestments is as we've shed one of a critical elements actually of all strategy. The way we actually look at divestment says one of the critical elements strategies that divestments basically helps in our case advanced world towards netzer and the reason for readers were actually divesting assets and we all reinvesting the percy's into creating a low-carbon supply so it's not five for the second time Divestments in reinvestments into low carbon supply and so that actually advances the world in the energy transition in the sense of actually bringing in that capacity that additional common capacity in solution online.

Let's go back to you and your role within the business and clearly you know a lot in regard to give a lot to say that's the right way to phrase it. You have a lot to say in regard to the different frameworks companies looking at in your strategy and you're in a role that is new for bp. Is it not an in. Could you talk to us a little bit about what that role was designed to accomplish. And how you see it fitting within the organization it is indeed a new role on your organization. It was created within the frame of the reorganization. Ation of bp is one of the integrators and what we did. That rolls royce. Basically the strategy unsustainability sustainability organization. Group is we very much concentrated within that organization for group strategy so we no longer really have beyond operational strategy tragedy teams within the on different businesses and the same is true sustainability. So we were aiming to things. I think the fast thing was leaning to bring together strategy and sustainability and policy linked. Not the reason being that as we navigate for the energy transition and by the way even more after twenty twenty The two are very much coming together. And sustainable strategy is a strategy. Which is resilient for the future so the Was to a two together. The second one was very much one of actually creating this sensual. Bp strategy in sustainability team which would actually basically helped the different businesses and organizations to cross the strategy which would actually take through the energy transition on deliver on the aims. Which were announced by bennett really optimizing vulva group was breaking a little bit of maybe the upstream downstream silo. That could have been present in the post. It's really unorganized which is focused on working with all the difference businesses annecy finance and the under functions to actually kroft. What's the optimal path and that optimal off is reading optimal path in terms of delivering on the repub ambition also delivering performance today. I know shareholder invest value proposition. So you joined then. There was a global pandemic. And how has that changed how you are getting your job done and maybe even just the scope of the role because surely you know the things that you were setting out initially to do have in some ways. Probably been modified by this. I joined indeed and then the global pandemic hits and what i felt was lead. A pretty interesting challenge became even more of a challenge because creating an organization on the strategy. When you were working remotely end you do not know selling he is not something which is the easiest toss that one can actually lay out. It is actually quite incredible. How the organization raw has adapted to promote walking and how incredibly efficient we have been in terms of actually reading losing into virtual and driving reorganization designer driving the strategy. I think what we've done for. The pandemic has actually detailed design of the organization and that has slightly most as we were going through the detail design but it would have been the same without pandemic. I think what the dynamic actually day to is that roosen pandemic i think We have witnessed acceleration of these in terms of momentum and intense in terms of energy transition. And so what the pandemic had actually done is it has one confirmed the strategy that we will shaping and to help us on board united nation on the strategy underneath Rian reorganized along the new structure so it sounds like you're actually fairly hopeful and recently we looked the well so some forecasts are showing that we may reach that one point five degrees c before pre industrial levels that international plan on climate..

Did it really happen. Very organically at all levels of the business. Well i think there were several initiatives right. It all started with the announcement Started on february twelve of the new cup this reimagining energy for people on the planet the ambition and the aims the nazi rings that was author if she wished on the pins by the strategy which was actually announced on his fourth and then detailed in september it was also accompanied by a soul reorganize ation of bp which we call reinvent bp which is really targeted towards losing away from the upstream downstream model to an organization a lot of which lines to the energy transition with this new signs which all productions Hydrocarbons this insists the sign on gas.

The organization towards alignment with a strategy service ridi all the building blocks that came together in terms of ambition in terms of integrated strategy in terms of organization supporting it and then a lot of communication around the story implications for one of the different people in the organization. So if you are in washington operations business yes we might be the world. Westwood twenty thirty. We are reducing production by forty percent. But you all funding the energy transition so it really is a game of and we need you to deliver today to be able to actually transition the company so you have a fundamental role to play at the same time. The group engines needs to deliver. So we really didn't exercise of cascading and dots strategy into. What does it mean for the different parts of your organization so about a decade ago. Bp was really pushing the limits in terms of a focus on sustainability with the beyond petroleum kind of edition campaign and since then specifically focusing on kind of the renewable assets that bp had many of them were sold off and we went through this period where that was really not a favourable part of the industry for the business to be in now. It seems like there's a look at renewables again. My question in this really is do you think that. In order for an oil and gas firm to transition into the energy company do you think that a large percentage of the revenues can actually come from renewables or is that not the right way to look at how the company is gonna look to change and grow and diversify. There is no one-size-fits-all strategy. In terms of oil and gas companies. The hop noisy we've seen companies resulted in the us actually focusing very heavily on carbon capture. We've seen of accompanies actually focusing. More heavily on retail power to consumers are answer is one where we do see. The carbon technologies altogether having to play a critical role in the energy transition.

BP's Role in a Net-Zero Carbon World
"What is it about that you think differentiates them in this space that it's quite progressive to say that you're you think that an oil and gas firm is exact right place to be in looking at decarbonization the energy transition. I actually think that if we want to play a critical role getting to the paris alignments the carbonized energy systems. We need to walk energy companies. I think that's the first element brooches you conscious decarbonize energy systems by walking with companies. But if we really want to get the pass alignment winnie talks support such as us which energy plus industry transport represents seventy percent of global emissions. So we need to really work with companies such as Gas companies to actually help them decarbonised in. Go along that journey. So i i don't see joining a company such as vpn Gas company which is committed to she decarbonising as a progressive jenny. I think it's actually very much lines towards the ambition on the purpose in terms of what is unique about ep. When i actually had my first conversation with the time when i was actually considering jet joining the had already involved on a series of multiple conversations with multiple types of stakeholders from institutional stakeholders eeg governments. They called as with investors across the world and with less obvious stakeholders such as ngos and some of the most challenging gio so there was a whole process of listening which was going on and that person of listening actually very much shaped his perspective and also the l. tease perspective leadership teams perspective. So what. I was actually struck by the super superstrong alignment within the whole leadership team within the company itself on this ambition to transition at the end of the day. If you're actually working in the morning gas company and your delivering energy to the world he also wanna feel good about what you're doing and in equivocally we all delivering energy to the world's anna frame of the energy transition we have capabilities in the skills to continue doing so trudy energy transition and and towards the low-carbon well

"People turned out in pretty large numbers in northern minnesota this week. More than a thousand people there to protest the construction of a new multi-billion dollar oil pipeline a pipeline that among other things would cross through the delicate headwaters of the mississippi river. The protesters are trying to block that new pipeline and all the environmental hazards that it brings with it. A separate group of protesters made their way into one of the new pipelines pump stations. That's currently under construction. They piled a whole bunch of stuff including a vote at the entrance way so nobody could get in or out. The demonstrators then started locking themselves to the construction equipment bodily at at that site that had the effect of shutting down all work on on the pipeline for the day. Eventually police showed up. They started dragging protesters through the dirt to arrest them. About two hundred. People were arrested just at the pump station but the response by law enforcement wasn't just a local one in terms of local minnesota police officers. Look at this. This is a helicopter belonging to the federal government. Us customs and border patrol cv. Pista flew this helicopter.

There will continue to be so but to abott's it's quite questioning taking on a job like this under any circumstances but then you throw on just a little global pandemic and crash in oil prices. I just can't. I really just can't imagine the extraordinary opportunity in challenges that your every day must include Let me i. I've read a lot About bp's ambitious goal of becoming net zero twenty fifty and transitioning really to an integrated energy company from my perspective. This is undoubtedly game changing. It provides a different model for all of us in oil and gas to look at the future. Think about our role in the future on. But i imagine it's harder than it looks inside the company so what kind of culture changes of had to happen internally from people who spent their whole career as an oil company as a as a as an employee a to now being a globally leading energy company. What does that look like an even. What's really hard about it or what what has to be done differently. The kind of about is the you have to do. A lot of comeback think can simultaneously. So you can't just do concentrations the pope's of the organization you conscious change the structure of the organization. What we have done in. Powell has been a very substantial reorganization activity of restructuring. That we will be pete reinvent and as a result of that. We have changed the structure of the company from an australian downstream company. Which is being that way. The most hundred twelve years to the new structure between think is more representative of the city has an integrated energy company. So that's that's not a big deal. But i think as much of those structural changes or pulses the changes that we've made to people in the organization the some of the roles on the way. The selection process has happened. Because you mentioned that we had seventy thousand people in the company. Actually the reality is probably at ten thousand will be leaving. Bp many of left some of either so we'll get down to sixty thousand the in the coming kind of euro two and a selection process was put in place with with particular cultural attributes of the people's human. You rose Attributes of play of business can have great business. Hey commission alyce but also Curiosity understand why things like. They wouldn't have changed them and also can strong strong embassy and strong performance skills. But if you like an empathetic edge to those for the performance feels so. I think the culture can will emerge over time but i think the direction we set through the purpose and the reinvent program and some of the attributes selected people. And you could say on the soft side i think will be important. Contributed how the organizational culture can develop so the komo news. I'm gonna go so interesting. I have never heard of Company culture selecting for curiosity and empathy. I love that. Because the those are words i advise for how he engage with a public that skeptical about our industry in skeptical. Even when we say we care about decarbonising. We have a public. That says are you. Are you greenwashing. And we'll get to that later but tell me a little bit more about how curiosity empathy can shape your company's culture. This is completely novel to me.

And these things, as it turns out, are all related Race, the economy, climate change public health and a new book, co edited by Ana Elizabeth Johnson and Katharine Wilkinson connects those dots with a focus on climate change and on doing the work to fix it. It's called all weaken, Save truth, courage and solutions for the climate crisis, and it includes essays, poems and art by more than 40 women leading the climate movement. Ayana and Catherine. Welcome to the program. Thanks for having us so great to be here. This is not the type of climate change book you expect. It's storytelling. It's beautiful and right. Exactly. And when did we find ourselves at a point where we stopped talking about climate as the thing we live? You know the air we breathe the rain that falls or doesn't fall. Guiana. I'll start with you. Do you think it's important to re center? The conversation as a human problem? Yeah, and even more so, a problem caused by A very small group of humans who made some horrible decisions on behalf of the rest of us right, Like one of the problems with the environmental movement is that is allowed The fossil fuel industry to spread the blame across all of us. You know, BP created this concept of a carbon footprint that we're now all obsessed with instead of thinking about How we can focus on systems change how he can transform our energy and transportation and buildings in agriculture and land use in manufacturing. That's the work that needs to be done. Not just all of us, you know, not admitting anything? Because that doesn't work. I mean we've seen during the pandemic. That even at the beginning when people were all basically staying home That emissions only went down seven or 8%. So the whole individual responsibility thing is not going to get us there. And so this book puts forward a more Collective vision. We are a business and economic show, and we can't of course leave out how our economic system Diana, you just touched on this a little bit. It's corporate emission. How much of this story telling Is also about Making the simple economic argument that that saving people Also saves money. It's not a major theme in the book. Katherine. Did you want to talk about our one main finance essay from Regime? Sure. Yeah, so we're really excited to collaborate with regime. Clement, who runs Creo And she's grappling with the question. How do we use the current economic system? How do we use extractive capitalism to transform extractive capitalism? So I think that the tricky thing to me is that The rules of the game have to fundamentally change. We can't just play the game better. I don't think that will get us to the kinds of radical emission cuts that need to happen. This decade on DH, then beyond, But there's clearly a really strong economic case for climate solutions. And then, of course, the book is full of women, and a lot of them are women of color, and I feel like we're finding climate. Women finder full of climate, women. I feel like this conversation about racial justice, climate, justice, social justice the importance of involving women in these conversations, how many women are leading solutions all over the world? Is still kind of new and still kind of nascent, so lame, But you're right, which is pretty lame. But maybe take some explaining, you know, like what? What is what is this relationship between racial justice and climate change? And why don't people understand that? I think we don't understand it because We don't want Teo because it's it complicates something that is already really hard right like that's thie. That's the pushback that I hear. Most often. It's not like I'm a racist and I want to save the planet. It's more like solving climate change is hard enough without bringing in all these other layers. Can we just please focus on climate change now first, and we'll deal with like Police, not murdering black people for no reason later. And the answer's No. No, we can't We have to walk and chew gum on this one. And there are many reasons for that one is just it's the right thing to do. And so I hate having to give other reasons. But one of those other reasons is, you know, we know from polling by Yell and George Mason University's that people of color actually are more concerned about the climate crisis. But how, you know how can we expect black people to be focused on climate solutions? When Making sure they have the basic right to live and breathe. On DSO. This I can't breathe has become a rallying cry across. Um, you know, across the racial and climate justice groups that it's not just In relation to police brutality, but in the ways that communities of color are burdened with more polluted air, and where you know where power plants decide to locate themselves, and then you know people who are breathing that dirty air being more at risk for extreme forms of Of Cove it and so of course, these things are all connected. And wouldn't it be great if we were building the winning team by including the people who were already on board? And he wanted to help. And I just want to add that when we think about climate change, as quote unquote the problem. I think that's where we start to miss. These intersections and entanglements. When we understand, Actually, that climate change is a manifestation of the problem, right. It's emerging out of a system that we're getting. So much feedback that it's not working racial violence is part of that feedback. Massive wealth inequality is part of that feedback. The epidemics of loneliness and meaninglessness are part of that feedback. But if we're just thinking about climate change as the problem we need to solve In our analysis isn't deep enough about what's actually going on here, and that's what it's actually going to take. To solve it. Diana, Elizabeth Johnson and Katharine Wilkinson are co editors of the new book All Weaken, Save Truth, Courage and Solutions. Oh,.
