"bering sea" Discussed on WABE 90.1 FM

"You can imagine it was like it was the ultimate artisanal fishery It was an fisherman's co op next door all the houses were painted with leftover boat paint so like greens oranges reds we were selling cod tongues door to door And all I ever wanted to be was a fisherman And you know I look back and I wonder why you know why didn't I want to be an astronaut or something And it was because I'd see them go out in the morning and they own their own boats They have these self directed lives They succeeded and failed on their own terms and they had this pride of feeding their country right It just seemed to me as a little kid It was a soul filling job So that's what I did and I dropped out of high school much to my parents for and headed out to sea at the age of 14 And so what did that feel like at the time I imagine it was it sounds like dangerous in some ways exciting What was your perspective then versus what you know now about kind of the bigger picture of what's going on with the series In the 1980s and I think all of society was in a boom of resources right And it just seemed like the fish were endless and we could just hunt and hunt the seas forever And then also this incredible solidarity had just been like part of a tribe really of people that are out there chasing Fisher on the globe So that was it was so different in that now I still want that job like a climate job that we can write and sing songs about that soul filling But one that is not extracted But I just didn't have an awareness then and it just wasn't a discussion in the industry And now it talked about all the time on the boats Where the fish are whether we should be fishing and what the industry should look like What was going through your mind at that time I imagine it's amazing life being out at sea in that way Yeah I mean you know although I see my life is one of ecological redemption I don't regret that time I mean you know a lot of people treat sort of fishermen and coworkers So those of us that were working in the extractive economy almost as criminals like where to blame but we weren't to blame society was to blame the captains of industry governments that were subsidizing large factory fleets And I just was doing something I loved him Fishermen repeated the last hunters on earth for a commercial food and we should really really honor that Look and act the same way but it's a beautiful way to make a living Was it a moment that led to sort of a change of career and change of direction for you Because you're no longer fishing in the same ways that you were So when I was on the Bering sea the cod stocks crashed back in Newfoundland and that was one of the first big collapses of the fishery 30,000 people thrown out of work was the largest layoff in Canadian history and it is amazing to see an economy built up over a hundred years just decimated.

"The any AC national monument and preserve gets the fewest visitors of any national park, and it boasts no rangers. No trails and no waiting in line. All the more reason Christopher Solomon went out of his way to hike a few summers ago. Chris, welcome great to be here. Is this actually a national park or what's the technicality they're. Technically Rick any act check national. Monument and preserve is its name and it. It is not a national park, but it is the least visited unit of the four hundred and one properties in the national park system, so nobody goes there white. Why do they even bother thinking of it? As part of the system you, you'd think that the least visited might be something like the Martin Van Buren national birthplace right, but no It's Antioch Chat in two. Thousand Twelve Anne check had nineteen visitors last year might have picked up to a hundred or so and you were there with how? How many people in your party three of us three of us now? Where is it and how do you get? There visualizes for me if you look at the map of Alaska Alaska? has this big tale that kind of frozen, fourteen hundred mile tail, that wags westward at come shotgun, and that's the Aleutian islands and the base of that tail is the Alaska Peninsula, and that's where any act check. You know if I wanted to go there next week. Where would I fly? What I just rent a car and drive there, or how'd I get that so one of the reasons rick? Not, very popular is it's hard to get to from Seattle where I live. It took US three flights to anchorage to King Salmon to Port Heiden which is just an airstrip built for World War Two in the middle of nowhere on the Bering Sea and then we backed packed with sixty five pound packs for twenty two miles to reach the centerpiece of the the. The National Monument, which is a gorgeous volcanic crater, so ease of access is not one of its selling points. Is it worth the trouble? Yeah, I was thinking about this on the drive over here and how to summarize it. I have had the good fortune to travel all over the world as a travel writer, I was with a photographer who shoots pictures all over. Over the world and beautiful places we agreed we'd never seen a place as unique as okay. How can you write in? Your article is just gorgeous about this that it was mind-bending. Lee Gorgeous is the desolation that's part of it, or what makes it better than just going to any national park, so maybe to convey what it's like I need to tell you just. Just a little bit about its geologic in human history, which is more interesting than it sounds about the time. The Egyptians were ruling the world. A seven thousand foot volcano blew its top with a with a force of ten thousand nuclear bombs ruined the bigger eruptions we we know of, and then the volcano collapsed on itself and created a crater that could swallow Manhattan. That crater filled with water, so it looked like crater lake national park, then that lake blew out in his biblical flood in over the next couple thousand years, this lost worlds was sort of created inside that crater, and it just went kind of unnoticed, except for the native peoples for thousands of years until nineteen thirty, when this man called the glacier priests arrived, and the Glacier priest was father, Bernard, how he's one of these Jesuit priests who was cut from the old cloth, swashbuckling sort of Jesuits, and he, he barnstorm all over the forty-ninth state, having these wild adventures by Bush plane. Plane by dog sled is write ups win the Saturday Evening Post and the National Geographic and in nineteen thirty, he wrote about visiting Antioch Check, and he described it as paradise found this this lost world where orchids bloomed in the volcanically warmed soil, and the rabbits were gigantic, and they came up and walked right up to his crew, which was a bunch of the Santa Clara football players, and and they felt bad killing them to eat them, but they did anyway. Did you read his writing the in preparation for your trip so I? Did I read about his writings about the great? Great Moon Crater of the earth called it, and then what happened is he wanted to go back the next year nineteen, thirty one and any act check blew up again, and he goes back and talks about it no longer in these Milton, s Kinda paradise found terms, but but in this dante-esque hellish terms describes himself peering into this blackened inferno, and then they go into the crater a couple months after it's blown up again, and they nearly die of poisonous gasses, and they're, and they're put their beans on a funeral and their beans Boileau, and they shove a thermometer in the ground. Ground thermometer explodes, and it's just this hellish wild landscape. That's the setting we go back eight years later. Just kinda see what it's like, and a lot of the soot has washed off from that nineteen thirty one explosion, but it has this kind of Sier Flinty beauty desolation sublime.

Former Astronaut On Watching For Life-Destroying Objects From Space

"Meteor exploded over the Bering Sea between Russia and Alaska at the end of last year with the energy of ten atomic bombs. It happened with no warning whatsoever. And we only just learned of it. Former astronaut at Lou keeps a close eye on objects that might collide with the earth. He's the executive director of b six twelve in organization that works to protect the earth from asteroid impacts and other planetary defense issues. Thank you so much joining us. Thank you. So we only just learned of this meteor because NASA only just now put up the information on its website. That's pretty worrying I must say, well, actually, the incident was observed right away. Right. It's just that. It was observed not by NASA. But originally buy a network of sensors used to detect. Atomic bomb. Explosions are nuclear weapons tests around the world. Typically, how much notice do space agencies observatories get about media, asteroid strikes, the typical notice for asteroid impacts on earth is zero zero. And that's because the vast majority of asteroids are still untracked this particular asteroid was quite small. It was only about thirty feet across and the vast vast majority of asteroids that's mall are not tracked this landed in the sea. But if it had landed somewhere else on land in how much damage could it have caused us to give us some perspective to give an example, the kind of thing that can happen just about six years ago in twenty thirteen we had an asteroid a little bit larger that exploded near the Russian city of Chelyabinsk, and it's shock wave. Blew out. Many many thousands of windows in the Russian in Chelyabinsk collapsed. I I believe it was seven buildings and sent the bout fifteen hundred people to the hospital. And that explosion was luckily about forty kilometers away from the city. So had that happened over the city could have been quite bad. So you were an astronaut and now you founded this organization keeping an eye out for life destroying objects from space. What's the connection there? Why did you decide to found this organization after you went out into space? Well, the interesting thing about looking at the earth and the moon from the vantage point of being out there in space for a long period of time. You you look at the craters on the moon, and you look at the earth, and you look back and forth. And you realize that there are more craters or they're more impacts on earth than there have been on the moon. You just don't see the craters as much because we have an atmosphere, and we have water, and continents and weather and so on that race older craters, but the fact of the matter is that the earth does get hit more than the moon, and we do have the technology to both find and track these asteroids to. Deflect them felt to me at a number of my founders that that is something that we ought to do because we do know that the earth has been hit in the past by very large asteroid impacts that have changed the the evolution of life here on this planet. In fact, we humans today are here because an asteroid killed off all the dinosaurs. So what can be done to protect the planet. What would you like to see happen briefly? Well, the first thing you have to do is simply mapping the locations of all the asteroids where they are. And where they're going because that will tell you, which if any of these things are a danger to earth once you know, that an asteroid is gonna hit the earth say ten twenty thirty years from now. And that's that would be the goal decades of events notice. You only need to give a tiny nudge to an asteroid to keep it from the earth. And in fact, necessary about to testify on an asteroid. It's coming nowhere near their show. How you can simply run into it with a small spacecraft, and that that is sufficient in most case. To give the tiny impulse you need to make an asteroid miss the earth. If you have enough notice former astronaut at loom, executive director of B six twelve thank you so much. Thank you for your
