The Philosophical Fallacy in Bodily Autonomy
"Because if you're only pro choice up until the point when the baby can survive outside the womb, then medical advancements every few decades enable us to make the child viable at earlier and earlier stages. So are you saying that one's in trident intrinsic dignity and natural right to life is dependent on the external advancements of scientists and the ideas that they come up with to make children viable at earlier and earlier stages. That's a very strange political vision of natural rights. But of course, that doesn't make any sense because our babies fully viable. No, if you leave an infant in a crib they die. You know, and what if mom tells the judge in a court of law, Charlie? Well, you know, judge my lesbian dance theory professor at UC Berkeley. She told me I have bodily autonomy. She told me I have bodily autonomy my body, my choice. My breasts are part of my body. So I didn't nurse my infant because I have bodily autonomy. What judge would accept that form of argumentative? Baby yes, the fen for itself. Very few. 6 week old. Once boring is the fend for itself. That's right. Yeah. So obviously the viability one doesn't work. And if you really want to go that route, that you only have rights if you're not dependent on someone or something else. Everyone dependent on insulin heart pacemakers kidney machines life support caretakers would all be non personing and can be killed in people. And you know, it's funny Charlie with the left says that right. Mother earth. Mother, what did they say? We're all dependent on this mother earth goddess without which we can not continue to live. Oh, you mean like the baby can't continue to live apart from their dependency on their mother? So I guess all of us are not persons because we're dependent on the earth ridiculous. So viability doesn't work. Well, they're not developed enough so they don't have desires. Then this is a more fine tuning philosophical argument with Charlie. But you don't have to find will then you're not exactly or that you don't have a claim to act unless you have a desire for X and can understand that you've been denied X and so unless you're aware of your right to something and can articulate it or have a desire for it. I guess you don't meet that list. This is enlightenment thinking gone wrong. Oh, totally. Yeah, this goes right back to the enlightenment period. Yeah. And right back to misses Machiavelli, the beginnings of what became post modernism relatives. It all started with Machiavelli. That's exactly
The Science of Embryology
"Well, the other side will say Seth, look, it's the fetus is the size of a pebble. You can't possibly say that's the same thing as a 6 foot three person. Right, it's ageism, right? So that's what they say. We hate racism. We hate sexism in this country, but apparently ageism is not just acceptable, but it's been normalized. The child is not the same size as us simply in virtue of their development. So let's look at excuse me. Yeah, I got something. No, you're good. Let's look at what the science of embryology says. The type of science, by the way that you're not going to hear from UC Berkeley or from Fauci, the high priest of progressivism. The science of embryology has been basically uncontested for decades. And yet you don't hear this anywhere in the mainstream media or in universities. From the moment of conception, there's a distinct living in whole human being. Distinct because it's obviously not your DNA not your choice if you like to say the body and her body's not her body. And we know that because the baby could be a different gender than the mother. Obviously, pregnant women don't have male genitalia so the baby's distinct. The baby's living 'cause dead things don't grow. The unborn child meets all the requirements for a living thing. And the unborn child is directing her own internal growth from within. So right, I have two kids, Charlie, my wife never woke me up in the middle of the night, shaking me saying, babe, come here, come whisper to my uterus. Come remind baby to grow. 'cause unborn children actually, they develop themselves from within independent of the wishes of their parents. And the child is whole. A whole human being is simply a human being who already has everything they need to realize their full growth and development as a participating member of the human species. And this is where our opponents Charlie get very confused when they say, well, I mean, maybe it's like biologically human. Like it has like human DNA. It's like cellularly human, but it's not like a full human. Oh, you mean like lunchtime? You mean what the Nazis called subhuman? All right, not full human just kind of subhuman. Same type of bigotry with abortion. But they say it might be biologically human, but it's not a human like you and I. So this last concept is the most important for us to articulate to the next generation and to the pro choice moderates and pro choice activists in our country. A whole human being is similar to a Polaroid photo.
Filmmaker Ami Horowitz on the Inspiration for His Series
"Can we are back with army Horowitz, see the whole video of him in Berkeley with American students giving a man they think is funding the Taliban money for the next 9 11 army. We don't rehearse any of this. I don't tell you what I'm going to ask you. This is the question. I don't think I've ever asked you. And I think it's the most important one. Nobody is doing what you're doing. I mean, you know, Jesse ward is what his world is fun. It's amusing, but your videos are shocking. Why are you doing what you're doing? What's the genesis of it or we share that story? Yeah, sure. You know, so my background was as an investment banker. That's what I did for most of my career. And one day the Saturday night and I was watching the Michael Moore film going for Columbine. And I started drifting off thinking about the United Nations and how horrific they are and damaging they are. And why isn't anybody up in arms about it? And I looked over at the screen at the Michael Moore documentary. I thought, what did engaging interesting. Way to convey an idea, this idea of a smart, dark documentary. Now, he may be totally wrong, he's a big fat pig. But hey, you know what? Still, it's a really interesting way of conveying a perspective. So I thought, you know what? I'm going to do that. I literally quit my job. I was sorry, I quit my job on Monday. Start raising money, made a movie called you and me, which was thank God successful enough where a kind of open live doors for me. I decided I didn't want to do any more. I didn't want to spend another 7 years on one topic and spend millions of dollars on it. So I said, you know, this social media was really taken off that point. And you can kind of create your own platform. And that's what I did. I just started doing these one off videos. And they just kind of became super successful and they kind of blew up to the point where now we're across all platforms are probably four and a half million views per video. As soon as the show, right? Then you're going to have your own show called triggered. Yeah, yeah. We are in the process of that as well. Really excited about them. I'm sure. I'm sure this will be one of the first places I'll come to you talk about it once we're
3 US-based economists win Nobel for research on wages, jobs
"Three economists who work in the US will share the Nobel Prize in economics and what they found in their research may surprise you David card born in Canada's with the university of California Berkeley his pioneering research shows that an increase in the minimum wage does not lead to less hiring and the arrival of immigrants does not lower pay for native born workers those two findings challenge commonly held ideas the other two economists who share the award with them are Joshua angriest of M.

"That's incentive along those lines. Second story here really is the story around the macro. Which is that copper. Prices are moving higher. I know it's been a challenging run. For some headline commodity prices coppers off the highs copper has averaged close to four bucks a pound this year and analysts are way behind in terms of where their copper assumptions are and where the price in the copper strip curve in companies like freeport. Mac the reality is that the infrastructure build out the infrastructure bill. Ev we just talked about this as copper copper heavy and i think copper supply demand dynamics very much in favor of copper prices moving higher and finally the gold and copper ramping of this company. Their operations are about as good as they've been there actually increasing production levels so this is a company that if you look at it on next year ebe ebitda. It's trading less than four times. And i know you don't by commodity companies. I say this all the time when they're cheap so by them when they're giving you almost twenty percent free cash flow you'll get next year and their cap ex is not growing. Their topix is probably drinking and again. They're not growing at all costs. Freeport to me is a better on company than it's ever been in. It's never generated more free cash flow nadine. Dean has a question for tim. Tim i agree with you one of the things. I'm trying to get my arms around is this. I'd like to hear your thoughts on how you incorporated into your analysis. Is we agree that the macro is so important. So if you have seen china selling some of their copper reserves or a lot of news bet cyclicals won't be as strong because growth is decelerating. How do you incorporate that versus saying copper. Prices are high we need. The money flows the liquidity going into these materials stocks which might be more of a factor issue than a pricing of copper issue. How do you. How do you deal with that. Yeah i think these are. These are traits not investment for most people and if you look at the weightings of of the resource stocks in indices. They've been inconsequential for years. So you can get frustrated here. And that's why. I think investors that are that are patient here and go to sleep at night with the balance sheet. That's never that's as good as it's been in a long time and again just back to the proper. The copper price assumptions Copper is priced in most of these models around three fifty three forty. I was going through a bunch of the numbers j. p. morgan significantly below four bucks..

"Six support for people who will be losing their jobs if we away from fossil fuels Hold baskets get those things in support of moving away from fossil. Feel this quickly as we ask without harming people in the process. I think those are absolutely spot on and i you know i try to challenge colleagues on this myself as well because one of the things i've personally been told when i go into the hall congress or so forth as well. Can we get things are happening. Hurricanes are more tense likelier will be. There's drought what do we do now. Then how do we do it in a way. Sort of big pictures. I think i really appreciate it. You had some very thoughtful perspective on this. And it's like yeah. I think we know that we need to reduce co two emissions. Thought you ask very specific examples. I really resume nate and appreciate this idea of sort of support for those that may as we transition to a new economy. I mean there are real kitchen. Table lives in issue has changed and we have to think carefully about that. I mean you know. We went through one industrial revolution in eighteen fifties. Probably out this problem Probably gonna go another one and they'll be different opportunities. don't they'll people will need to be retrained and and so forth. But you know we've done it before we can do it again. Dr where can people find out more about berkeley earned or you on social media or the web Yeah so berkeley are says the websites or clear thought work which is the home for all of our data log information we also are active on twitter supposed a berkeley earth The made and force myself at our a rhody are r. a. r. o. hd At those are probably the main portals If you go to our website you can sign up for a jury. I use letter with the mostly focused on was the most recent climate information The warming in temperature across the earth in these sorts of things. quick question. before we let you go are berkeley earth involved in either the ipc or the national climate assessment reports at all so berkeley are does not have a formal role individuals associated with berkeley Of interaction with it so for example. A cal's father who has said one of the people on the berkeley earth team. is also position to be One of the chapter authors on the climate assessments I was just curious about them. Because again i think you. Are you your team players on the landscape now. I know many of us get called about those times. Things other key. Reports issued by the un organization. Debbie or you're nationally There's a federal law that mandates that the us its climate Every four or so years. The national climate assessment in the new one is coming out. I think sometime next year Doctor wrote a thank you so much for joining us before we get out of here though. I've got to do what i do it. Every podcast in it's time for our geek of the week. We like to highlight a scientists superstar a great geologist. Or whether weedy at the end of every podcast this episodes geek of the week is chris.

"We are back on the weather geeks. Podcast dr marshall shepherd from the university of georgia and talking with dr robert rhody. Someone really wanted to have on. The weather geeks podcasts or sometimes. I'm glad we will get shot up. The josh vector with the weather geeks production as well Neither year the production efforts going on real time. are happening because of josh Elected from time to time Give shout outs. Some of the team. You don't hear on podcast is a really extraordinary team. And they're all meteorologists have meteorology backgrounds. Too involved with his podcast. Now you've also performed analysis on air quality. What what have you done in that role. And what have you learned about air pollution and its impact on human health. So berkeley earth gotten a dinky about air fall in it because it's very closely linked to fossil fuels. Most of their issues we talk about are related to combustion of fossil fuels coal. Neil automobiles things like this. So there's a very there's a lot of leverage their watch to reduce air pollution's who also often want to address fossil fuels the very linked issues We were looking a lot at what was going on. In asia particularly china initially also sometimes korea japan other environments at there is a there isn't enough air pollution being produced in places like china to contribute to be contributing factor in millions of deaths. Each year what happens is that these fine particulates get into your lot. They moved into your bloodstream. And they make you a higher risk for things like stroke heart attacks and cancer as it's a real concern that we need to be reducing this air. Click the add your understanding it better yet. I think that's really important in this. Koga air we're wildfires degrade air quality here in the united states and so forth This this linkage with air quality and enow always wondered you know when you hear some of the arguments against climate change or for mitigation and. I've always wondered how even if you don't believe a lick about the whole anthropogenic impacts of greenhouse gases on our warming climate. What's bad about cleaning the air. I mean i have never understood the the logic of being averse to that. If that's a side effect of the warming strategy and mitigations. I actually was not familiar with some of this work which leads me to my next questions. I mean what's next for berkeley army talked about your quality. What are some of the sort of next things that you were going to. Really focused on Yeah so in the short term. We are hoping to make a number of improvements on our climate side. We are actually right now. We already have. When is the highest resolution global temperature fields at one degree We are hoping to push nats resolution significantly to provide feiment historical climate data that is downscale to understanding the city and the state region more so as greater houston utility to people who are looking at the low for mutual facts. We're also Communication effort that never laid looks at those local original tax going forward Sagawa mentioned something about this sort of one degree in downscaling for our listeners. So many of the climate data and climate models or out cutting information at large will we call and meteorology and climate spatial resolution. So you might have data every one degree of latitude or so. There are so forth. So that's about one hundred and eleven kilometers in size so you basically have a box about one hundred eleven kilometers. But if you're trying. To give policymakers information what's on what's happening in fulton county the county. That houses atlanta georgia. Well that county is much smaller than that. Seven hundred eleven grid box that we have climate model so people like dr wrote a and others are thinking about mentioning these downscaling techniques in their statistical dynamical until a lot of mathematics. Involved to try to get that information down to usable scales of communities and census tracks in counties and so forth. Have you found that to be a tough problem So i think you know there's different degrees of top. So it is a computational intensive problem. Y'all move the data to a small scale on understand the structure of it requires a lot of computing power. If i would not say it is a conceptually tough thing. We understand what needs to be done. But the other and there's a number of details in boston after go into it. But also a lot of computational our has to be devoted to it if you wanna get that small scale where people live. I agree and i think it's one of the big big frontier still left. And i'm glad to see your group tackling last sort of substantive question for units of big wind. But i consider you an expert. Or i consider you an ear that congress might or call on to testify before them and so forth of the president might call and say what's what what do you think so if you had sort of a magic one and you you have already heard sort of where you are on. Sort of climate urgency. You don't think it's the end of the world for sure. What's the next great sort of thing that we need either. From a scientific perspective or policy perspective in other words if you could put all your eggs in one basket we many baskets but if you could put all your eggs in one policy basket recommendation science basket recommendation. What would it be at this time. Don't ask questions. I don't that's i love. I love the challenge. Our guest now. We have really awesome experts and again. There's no right around there. I'm just kinda curious. What what do you think we need right now. So i would say that we know have known for a number of years. The basic outline of what we need to do. The science is clear that we need to be reducing fossil fuel emissions as quickly as. It's practical while also preserving human life while bidding those sorts of things so we really need to be aligning our policies with that goal so that needs doing things like ending the development of new oil and gas sites new coal mines. That means you know. Fostering the adoption of electric vehicles do pretty plus offices that make it easier for people to switch away from natural gas in their home. Six support for people who will be losing their jobs if we away from fossil fuels Hold baskets get those things in support.

"The weather geeks. Podcast i'm dr marshall shepherd from the university of georgia and i'm speaking we're dr robert roadway about berkeley earth very fascinating organization and by the way. Do not follow dr rodeo on twitter. I highly urged that. He's a really interesting follow. Is someone that. I follow and rely on and keep in my favorites list on climate. Because he he Puts out some brilliant. Did information. And i want to shift a little bit because one of the things that i've really kind of identified with a more contemporary times is the the what you're doing to educate the public policy makers and so forth about climate change. You've created a lot of visualizations. You talk passionately about this. One of the things that really has of interest to me is some analysis that you've been doing on of climate china's scientists In their presence in social media. How often they're tapped by policy makers and southward tell us how all of that got started. So i will confess. I liked twitter. I i do you actually it's got. It's dark corners and annoy. But i think it's a net good. Yeah you know. It's a way to talk to people in particular. Unlike a lot of chattels it can be interactive. Could talk to you. Say something people talk back. could start a conversation. That's really useful if you're tried to educate people on a topic such as cyber science You have the question about how the climate scientists networks of new things so i was actually set out to understand for by sells better. Who are the climate scientists. What is this to the on twitter. Like so i took some time Right simple scripts does that you identify the scientists do away followers. They do follow who are jitants. Bet works structure events also. Do things like understands. Journalists are following climate scientists. What politicians and you know it's it's informative. Sunlight boasts broadcast media opportunity to see who at what people are interested by looking at through their following. So for example you could find. The witch politicians are fall climate major climate scientists. That's a really strong advocate of those are politicians think climate scientists orchards issue. I understand this drought recommended a little bit. It's so what so what are and again. I know that. I've appeared in some of your your analysis in support. Salt will acknowledge that. Right off the bat but i'm sort of low on the totem pole. Compared to some people you offer talk about real. I mean a little bit. Who are some of the top climate scientists. That people are following particularly policymakers. Because i i know for example I testify before the house. Science committee twenty nineteen and one of the staffers explicitly mentioned. You know i follow you all the time on twitter and some. We thought you'd be someone. Good to testify so i know firsthand that you our science through social media not just do scientific journals as reaching people but who are some of the people you find that people go to and why are they effective. So they're the also the top scientists on twitter People like kathryn. Hey how was a climate scientist out of texas has made a career of coffee in particular to the The religious communities l. reaching out as well as exceptionally useful climate science There's also people like by command. Who is a much more. Polarizing figure that say catherine heyhoe somewhat different community but there's also a number of people night gay let's see a shit Listed of his twitter side. What's your twitter. Because i know you have a lot of information on your twitter you can find some of your. My twitter handle is our a rotate so r. a. r. o. Hd yeah and. He's got a lot of information there. I just find it interesting because you you. You actually have kind of have a scientific methodology for for this type of mouses. So this is not just someone sort of poking around. And saying oh he follows. There's a real. I mean i'm curious have have you published a out about publishing his I haven't Occasionally think y'all maybe this is upstate where it's writing up but it's sort of you know the people who are most interested are So it started speaking. You're writing for that. Community is where. I focused mostly do Yeah i think. It's interesting though. I actually just from putting on my scientists hat and professor at uga. I do think. There's some scholars scholarly interest there. Some of the sort of geoscience education or more public outreach. Type journals i i would i would encourage you because i think what you're doing is valuable but i also think it's rigorous i think it's. It's remorse enough that it could be published vary very much wanted the rigorous understanding who are for example who are the most followed. The most neutrally The politicians list do so. When i constructed these various lists. I wanted it to be rigorous in part. Because i wanted to make sure i wasn't missing no missing the diversity i want to. You don't want to just come up with a list of all white professors. We want to actually know. What is this community Sort of objective way. That's interesting because i recently saw a few months back a list of some magazine or some organization put out the top whatever hundred climate scientists and i think it did lack diversity. I think it did lack. Not only racial diversity but age diversity and disciplined diversity. I it was. And i dug into. I'm assigned to and i was curious. About what their criteria are in. It's things like cited work. Citations published works and so forth and so that is going to inherently biased towards people that have been in the academic environment a bit longer and maybe have a longer paper trail. When i know for a fact that people can cobb And i on elizabeth johnson. Who probably weren't on that list but are highly impactful climate scientists today. What you talks on that. I absolutely agree. There's a lot of young when you look at scientists. Wake metrics like the list. Know i believe referring to they offer Look taub as take g reformulated over career. Joe someone at business. Fifty years rates highlighted. but that's not necessarily. The person is paid the most impactful at the bullets at we. As a scientific community needs metric stats figure out was the are person now. Not just in the past. I think twitter's of Platform but it has a very communications oriented platform for people who want to be the business getting science identify fi people who they people who are relatively young who have less Out built a following of popular public Seru good and information. I know that something is big important for me. I mean i think we have to be scientists. Extend beyond the ivory tower otherwise people will fill gaps that we leave behind. We aren't there you know. A big part of my scholarship is publishing and doing the pure view science. And all of those things. I've got all those metrics but it's important to engage in so i completely agree with you on twitter. I think it's a net good. If you can filter through all the chaff up one quick question about your list do any people Appear high on your list. That i don't wanna say you're skeptic or contrarian but sort of perhaps lean a further away from the michael mann's and katherine hayles and marshall shepherd. The world in terms are always see climate change..

"Methods we add a bunch more data we of these holes in the top rations and concerns. I do still get answer. Which is very close to what the other groups is done in the past. And that's comforting. And i think what you illustrate talk about something that naomi arrests his talk about in her book or in some of her writings pass of conciliates this idea of approaching problems from different perspectives. Different methodology different data sources. That still arriving at similar conclusions. And that's a string of science. Y'all you often hear people talk about consensus. But i also like to talk about conciliates and i think your group. Berkeley earth really embodies this idea of approaching beans from a different perspective You know we all might go to the grocery store from a different route. We all get to the same place. And i think that's kind of what you didn't was there a moment for you are wow. I didn't expect that moment as you as you lead the development of berkeley's Temperature analysis. I believe in historical climate along the way. Where the moment for you. So you ha moment Not i don't think there was a bubba. Edgeware just all jailed together for me but there were a number of stepping stones. Along the way y'all try to realize for example the earth is a big place but the weather domains are still somewhat large. There is a weather system is not reading on what person it's ready. God cities states. That's one of the things that allows you to average disbar temperature network so good good idea of what's going on because you don't have the temperature benjamin everywhere i there's a number of understandings like that that come along the way understanding how you can identify biases from changing metrics in urban heat. Islands by comparing stations were versus urban or concurring stations different environments and the eldest number of figuring out as we went. Make sure we understood whether what's really going on.

"Climate and choir scientist to process. A lot of data and robert is one of the key people helping to do that. We'll talk about how berkeley earth is working to educate people about climate change and how they hope to build partnership with environmental and industry groups around the world. Robert thank you for joining us on the weather. Geeks spot guests great to be here. So there's a question i ask every guest. You told me you hadn't heard the podcast before. So you're going to be caught blindsided by this but i always ask. How did you become weather eke or in this case a climate eek. I've actually always been interested in climates going back to high school. I guess You know even way back then. Y'all i not quite that old old adopted. It's been a while There was still talking about climate. Change shows nineteen ninety You know i i. B c report of the relatively early discussions. And i thought it was important issue and i was concerned that i kept my eye on. It's a long time. They had this long divergence where i went to did a specific speech day and i studied the brian Eventually came back to climate science. As well as the most important things i could spend my time on and to let me give you a little background dr road a he has. He's lead scientists at berkeley earth. He has a in theoretical physics from university of cal berkeley so clearly someone that knows his stuff So i really should've asked how he became a phys geek. I mean as a kid. You really into physics in experimentation and all sure your little read books about einstein about relatively these things always fascinating because you get this sort of deep understanding of how the world works how. Things are connected. What are the mechanisms. That was loved. Understand that kind of thing and my awesome research team. Our producers are whether geeks produces bay they dig deep on our guest So they tell me that you're early worked involved ice core data studying the presence of microbial life in glad glacial ice. Tell us what that was about. Why to board. Yeah so my phd. Work i built a a built. Fluorescence spectrometer to dust and microbial life. Nice course so we would scan Chunks of ice collected from greenland or darpa and identify individual microbes With this laser setup. We have yeah. We weren't usually tied to what china microbe was that we were trying to tell how common they work. And that tells us something about microbial activity deposition and what's really going on the ice the worth of interesting things there for example you'd think of these ice cores is very static dead days not very stable but you get down to the bottom of their actually are microbial communities that live near the base. The ice genio consume smaller guy molecules. Introduce things into the ice. And you'll create confounding artifacts But yeah i worked on that for a number of years it could work at the ice. Core lab in the dark room was like us by laser setup. Decided i no longer want to work. It called dark place all the time. Switch to working side at work with the computers. The lasers just a just as lebanon geeks listeners Your doctor wrote a talk about ice cores. Which are a class of what caught proxy climate data sets their ways that we can often hear people say well. How do you know the climate was one hundred thousand years ago or perhaps a hundred thousand years ago. We have various proxy records that we use like ice cores. Tree rings coral. They're all kinds of records trapped in these things that we can do very sophisticated analysis ranging isotopic analysis and so forth. So i want what the listeners to know that when climate scientists are talking about past climates. They're not just sort of waving their hands These proxy data sets of proven to be quite valuable. If you think back to the day after tomorrow movie which many of us have seen that movie starts with scientists down. I believe in arctic and they're drilling for ice cores so Thank you for bringing that up. I want to shift the discussion now to berkeley earth. Now i remember this when this all came about and i want you to tell us the history of it because i don't remember the details but i do remember. There was a group that you know maybe start off outlook the word. Skeptical or denial lists or contrary that there was a group that was somewhat doubtful of some of the science that was coming out global warming or climate change and stood up this organization in some fashion. But i don't know the details. Just fill in the gaps in the origins of berkeley earth and what role climate climate-sceptics played in shaping it. So if you think back about a decade ago There was events that became known as climate gays when there was this release of emails from uk Met office in related organizations. That some people set a show evidence of manipulation of the data and you know raised never skeptics to be very concerned that the state has said has been dictated by upbeat reliable. And that sort of was the impetus for berkeley earth. Basically a number of people who had lifted the skeptical concerns at took them seriously said. We need to look at this. We need to do a detail. Take a fresh take. Make sure that the uncertainties rides the analysis is right. That there's not an aide fucking funny business doing on because this is so important to what about you climate. So that was sort of motivation. And then rich miller a who's a berkeley physics professor Helped organize a group of us myself. Included several other berkley faculty to take a fresh look at climate data at that time I'd build a new analysis. Susie somewhat different methods more data trying to address as many of the concerns of the climate sceptics had as possible We did wide to make sure we weren't selecting biasing. Our data sample might make sure we have if there were Thailand's or something like that. That we took into consideration so there was a that's where it began and ended joe has As aware of how raised by for both the gates foundation at the brother's the five at project. Oh wow that that is very unique interesting positioning though because clearly a unifies that someone saw us an honest broker. Yeah the only with a a legitimate concern that there was something wrong We didn't know what the answer big going so we started out. We have concluded that everything is fine or consider. There's some serious era we were. Just follow the date at stewart. Let's now we're talking with dr robert roadway from berkeley earth fascinating discussion and it was fascinating. History he just gave them to read something from your website says. Global warming is the defining environmental challenge of our time. The need for quality unbiased scientific information about global warming could not be more urgent yet. There are few sources of historic global temperature records the foundation underlying all global warming analysis. I think those are pretty powerful statement. what was your own personal perspective coming in but you are. Did you really try to come into this. Very sort of sort of unfettered or unbiased in any way I mean. I would say that i did want to very much all the data and understand what is concerns where the skeptics. Now so at the time. I read a number of the skeptical commentaries even some of the blogs. And things like this before you go. Let me just synthesize. Because that's a key point. You read some of the skeptic commentary in blogs but i think the consensus literature that time was still sort of all the sort of page of global warming happening climate change. There certainly are papers from sort of containers kept taking train them from mc skeptics basis in the peer reviewed literature. But would you read much of what you were reading at bit. Time was in the greater. Yeah i would agree. That a lot of it was not Was blog comments and other things at. Yeah i also read a lot of the Understand what people were doing at audi insisting algorithms put together by the concerns whether known bias issues off of they could halycon address on these things more thoroughly. But like i said i also wanted to understand. What were ya'll skeptical concerns that were coming from the the more intellectual the oriented skeptics people who had coaching arguments about their concerns. Try to address some of them and help said at the end of the day we wants to be able to move the arguments forward I think berkeley earth has attributed to that ultimately we found that the analysis that are group's done was pretty good that theology yield air understand global warming now seems to be pretty accurate even be improved the still methods we add a bunch more data we of these holes in the top rations and concerns. I do still get answer. Which is very close to what the other groups is done in the past. And that's comforting. And i think what you illustrate talk about something that naomi arrests his talk about.
Biden Heads to California to Campaign for Newsom in Final Stretch
"President joe biden will be in california today to support democratic governor gavin newsom. A day before his recall election recall efforts came after the governor faced stiff criticism over the past year for his handling of the corona virus pandemic and other issues. it's been well funded and supported by big name. Republicans like mike huckabee and newt gingrich but polling earlier. This month showed new. Some would likely remain in office. Numbers from the public policy institute of california found that thirty nine percent of likely voters in the recall would vote to remove some but fifty eight percent would not not surprisingly those opinions varied by party with eighty two percent of republicans in favor of ousting newsom compared to just seven percent of democrats that polling data mart day major change from earlier this summer a uc berkeley pool. As recently as late july found that fifty percent of likely voters wanted to keep new some compared with forty seven percent who supported the recall. This month's polling found that larry elder still lead the pack of potential replacements for newsome. The right wing talk show. Host led the field at twenty six percent this month. Primary remind people why they were angry enough. For one point. Seven million people signed the petition in the first place. A quarter of them were independence. Democrats voted for him. Two years earlier. Majority of hispanics. Now want him out. I think the majority of people are going to vote to recall gavin newsom. And i think the majority and i think i'll get the greatest number of votes to replace it. The next closest candidate was former san. Diego mayor kevin falkiner with just five percent of respondents. Planning to vote for him. The only one in this race the experience who led our state's second largest city who brought republicans and democrats together to solve problems That's who i am known as a very pragmatic leader who gets results but newsome himself was still confident this
USC Professor, Dan Schnur, on the Californian Recall Election
"Now have with us. Dan sure a former republican strategist now teaches politics and communications at berkeley and usc dan welcome to skulduggery as thanks so much for having me appreciate it so you are a california guy hence are interested in reaching out to you with this california recall coming up. On september fourteenth. There was a lot of concern in democratic party. Ranks about this about a month or so ago. That seems to have abated. Although there's a lot of attention and a lot of campaigning going on what your sense of where this stands right now at this point Governor newsom looks like he's in a very very strong position to defeat the recall. Nothing is guaranteed is likely to be a low turnout. Election but based on the early voting patterns based on the polls in based on newsome's immense fundraising advantage. If he wore if the recall order pass. At this point it would be a major major
Tropical Stork Ends up in New York, Dies After Eating Litter

Radio Host Jennifer Horn on Larry Elder's Chances of Winning Recall
"Where is larry larry's right at the top. But what's even more important because it's all about question number one. Do you want to recall gavin newsom. It's a to question ballot. I one do you want to recall him. And there is such a tightening in the polls. I honestly didn't even expect this but the l. a. times and berkeley got together. They did a pull that found. Forty seven percent of california voters supported recalling gavin. Newsom fifty percent oppose it. But it's a three point margin of error this is this is neck and neck right now. It's split down the middle. And you know these. Pollsters always oversample kratz in the state. So i am very encouraged. And i think a lot of it had to do with the secretary of state trying to keep larry elder off the ballot and we were on the air last week together at this very time when a judge ruled in favor of larry elder he couldn't have purchased better publicity. So larry elder. According to this survey the same survey is ahead of all of the other candidates and he is in. He's got a pretty good commanding lead. Actually he's got sixteen percent of the votes according to this new poll and then he's followed by john cox and kevin faulkner who were tied at six percents. This this is the way thing. And i love it. I mean it's poetic justice for the democrats that you have this system where it's one ballot. That has the recall question. And then all the candidates on the ballot so with a sixteen with a sixteen percent margin or not margin. but we're leading with with twenty other candidates. Larry could win easily. Absolutely all you need is really. I keep going back to about eighteen to twenty percent of the vote.
Larry Elder: Will Enough Californians Vote for a Recall?
"La times poll came out uc. Berkeley poll came out And i have eighteen points. My next challenger has a ten points. caitlyn jenner has around three. And i'm not dissing by republican opponents because it's a two step real simple deal unless fifty percent plus one vote rules that govern distance should recall recalled. It doesn't matter what the rest of us have. I'm pretty confident. I'm gonna finish with a higher vote tally in my other republican rivals. The question is whether or not enough californians are gonna vote for the recall and this poll came out this morning shows. Forty seven percents are in favor of the recall. and fifty three percent are not That's almost within the margin of error and that's about a five point improvement on our side compared to just two weeks ago. People are mad about the crime. They're mad about the mandates you're mad about the crappy schools that people saw for the first is because of the virtual learning that was going on. They're mad about the cost of living. You add it all up and it's perfect storm for getting rid of this
Despite Newsom's Efforts, Larry Elder Will Be on the Recall Ballot
"Us the latest developments. I can find later to his administration. The idea of trying to Get you rejected on technicalities. Like the dumbest decision ever took them to court. You victorious last week. So tell us what they tried to do to you way. You're at an how many other candidates they are. There are on this recall ballots. Well the cliffnote version assists the outgoing democratic governor. Jerry brown vetoed a bill. That was passed by the left wing. Legislature here in california and by the way they're super majorities in the lower house the assembly and super majorities in the upper house. The senate and they pass this bill. Basically they were assigned to force. Donald trump turn over his taxes in order for him to qualify for the twenty twenty ballot. Here in california jerry brown. The outgoing democratic governor vetoed it. Because he said it was constitutional and in california. No bill ever dies. What they do is just lay low and then reintroduced it so incomes. The current governor gavin. Newsom that you're reintroduced the bill. He signs it is litigated. All the way up to the california supreme court left wing. Sevan's zipped rules is unconstitutional both. Us constitution and state constitution however they did rule it apply to gubernatorial races. Now when it does require turnover five years of your tax returns which i did on time they required to turn into sets so hundred and fifty pages another copy of one hundred and sixty pages for whatever reason and i acknowledge it was an error on our part. There were seven pages missing in the second set now the head to seven pages in the first set so the secretary of state could easily have corrected. This under statutory power. She has the power to do so rather than do that. She kept me off the ballot so we sued and we may to arguments a that. The law didn't apply to elections. And if the did i. Substantially complied left wing. Judge in registered democrat. Went to berkeley for crying. Out loud. ruled aimed at the law. Didn't apply to elder and the if it did he substantially complied so far. They tried their best and they and they missed and now. I'm on the
Google Plans to Expand Its Campus Which Might Become Unsafe
"Google is expanding its campus in the san francisco bay. Area the companies. Planning to build offices as well as housing and greenspace near the shoreline which is at risk from rising sea levels. And that's raising the question of whether building there should happen at all. Npr's lauren summer has the story as a city planner in silicon valley. Michelle king. here's all about one of the biggest headaches in the bay area housing. Oh my goodness housing. Here is extremely expensive. Sunnyvale has very high cost of living in may the median. Home price in sunnyvale. Where king works was one point. Eight million so the city is looking at a different kind of housing higher density. That's walkable transit and greenspace. It would go into a part of town called moffett park right now. It's just offices lots of low rise buildings with wide parking lots one of the most sustainable things you can do is put people where they work and put people where transit is so. This is a huge opportunity. This isn't just sunnyvale vision. It shared by one of the largest landowners. Moffett park google over the last five years. The company has quietly bought more than seventy properties. Here worth almost three billion dollars. Jeff holtzman is google's director of real estate development for sunnyvale. We're incorporating sustainability into everything we do in our developments and we're doing it to support our employees but also the community and hopefully the environment. Sunnyvale is in the process of rezoning the land to allow google to build new offices and housing and just to know. Google is one of npr's financial supporters. And there's one more detail the city is looking at. This land is on the shore of san francisco bay which puts it right in the path of sea level rise sea level rises already happened. I we've seen about a foot over the last hundred years. Christina hill as a professor of environmental planning at uc berkeley. We're standing on the edge of the bay where a high tide is coming in. Hill says sea level rise will make these tides even higher by as much as seven feet by twenty one hundred. But that's not the only problem there's also seawater in the soil under our feet the groundwater and as the c rises that to- of saltwater under the soil is gonna rise also
Israel's Health Experts Warn ‘Long Months’ Ahead in Battling Delta Variant
"There on hewitt. Thank you for joining the hugh hewitt show. I'm joined by. Dr michael oren former israeli ambassador to the united states. He is now in israel. Hello doc orrin good morning. Good afternoon the morning hue to it. I've got two questions for you. The first half to do with the return of cova de israel. The delta variant is surging. California's got los angeles. That go back to mass mandate half of america is an got to vaccines or fully vaccinated with one john. Jay shot and therefore it's ravaging the unvaccinated india's got three million dead. What's the situation in. India and in israel and inter we have the highest level of action seems last march about fourteen hundred people per day. But the number of people actually hospitalized ventilate is very very low I think there's a fear among the health. Experts at this can get out of control very very fast. We don't clamp down now. We'll lose that control People very nervous You know we're finally getting back on our feet getting through recuperate from the losses of two thousand twenty one and twenty twenty and and here we are getting slapped down again and You know speaking berkeley out of my work as international airport open. Well you know it's interesting to me that i. I wrote a piece for the washington post this week. We don't know what the absolute variant will be very up to omega but it is entirely possible that one of them have aids the vaccines unless we shut it down now. It could go very bad on us. We're just sort of assuming the worst is behind us. That's a human sort of natural bias towards best case scenario but there is no best case scenario. There's only what's gonna happen. Michael do the israelis that we get it. But i think the defense. Here's because among young people. The young people paying the price for elderly people and that This is a new reality. Amer just going to have to live with it. And i hear that from young israeli after the youngest rarely And not just young people
"berkeley" Discussed on Netflix is A Daily Joke
"Luckily for us we live in berkeley california where you can find black women doctor's birthday. Yeah yeah yes that berkeley for doctors. Berkeley is like a sleepy college town. And i like living there because it's got all the stuff because it's a college but it's also a place to relax. At least it was that until the election kicked up into high gear and then it became this place that like every few weeks to all right would show up and start fights in the streets of berkeley if you don't know about the alright. I'm sure mostly do but if anybody who's here who doesn't know let me explain. The alright is a bunch of white dudes how to explain this. They wish they were a little bit taller. They wish they were ballers girl they would call her. That's the best way down to the bottom line. It so every few weeks the alright but show up in berkeley in start fights and people in the media which is hard for me. Because i work in the media would be like berkeley i. It's the outright. Merkley is fighting the alright in the streets look at berkeley fighting with i live in berkeley. Birth is not fighting the outright in the streets. Now here's how it works. The alright puts out flyers. They get online create graphics tweet and facebook about that. They're going to have a fight in berkeley on like a saturday. And then what happens. Is that in the surrounding area. Berkley people who like the fight or like you wanna find. Berkeley's weekend sure. I'd like to fight this weekend. What's it about. I don't give a shit. I wanna hit somebody and they show up and they fight in the streets in the media goes berkeley versus the alright. The alright is fighting in the streets. Berkeley not affected the residents of berkeley. When the ratio that the first time this other residents of berkeley were affected it cancelled the farmers market. Berkeley was affected. There was white women in yoga pants standing at the fight. Go supposed to get my kale. What am i supposed to get it from whole foods. Goddamn refugee somali. is that what you carrying. Yoga mats wrapped in plastic. Never been used so then. Yeah the media is like it's berkeley versus the outright. And then what happens is that all these d- list right wing. Celebrity showed up in berkeley. To take advantage of the moments. They could get some press and so then you got like ann. Coulter and milo yiannopoulos showing up and they had speeches at berkeley but they didn't give speeches because when they showed up the outright showed up and there's fights in the streets and the police like we can't have this. This is not safe for our students or are going to get the class speeches were cancelled and then ann coulter milo yiannopoulos and all the people on the on the right or like berkeley's anti-free-speech berkeley doesn't like free speech. No i live in berkeley earthliest. Fine with free speech we love freedom of expression were anti bullshit. all right. we're fans of free speech. We don't have to agree with what you say or what you do. There's a naked guy who for years just walked around berkeley everybody's like there's the naked guy anyway. Different people from different sides of the political aisle in the culture. We're like five with it. They'd be women in burqas with their kids going to school honey. The naked guy needs to get to work. We have to get out of his way. They were not mad. He's like. I gotta be naked in the park by ten thirty. As long as you don't get any nakedness on me have had it's a thing. We're not anti free speech rate. I bullshit man you know. And that's why. I hate the whole the fake argument about free speech. No you have the freedom of speech but you don't have is the freedom of consequences from that speech saying say whatever you wanna say whatever you want to say. Your free speech causes riots. You have to deal with the consequences of that if everywhere you go people right after you speak. Guess what you got to deal with that. If everywhere i did comedy arrived broke out. We wouldn't be here right now. We we'd be on youtube with this. There'd be many less people here because they wouldn't want to get caught up in a riot. Yeah just ridiculous. I'll give you an example of being responsible for your free speech for years. The honorable minister louis farrakhan used to travel the country giving speeches. Many people thought it was a hate speech. But what did the honorable minister. Louis farrakhan do. He traveled with security so that when he gave a speech the fruit of islam would be outside wanting people on the way in. They would line the walls. It'd be behind him on the stage. So the minister farrakhan felt safe so the audience felt safe so the surrounding community felt safe because he understood he had to deal with the consequences of his free speech. So what i'm saying. Is ann coulter in my apples. If you wanna walk around spewing hate speech then hire the nation of islam. That's all if you do. Please let me fill it for my next. Tv show. i wouldn't even have to be put ann. Coulter and milo yiannopoulos fifteen passenger van with the nation of islam just driving around the country. The sexual tension would be amazing.

What's Needed to Manage Wildfires
"The western united states is under excessive heat warnings or advisories again that he plus the extreme drought that's been afflicting. The region could make for a disastrous wildfire season. This year in states like california last fire season in california was already the worst in the state's modern history with nearly ten thousand fires burning over four million acres killing thirty three people and destroying thousands of properties forest management and california as in most states is a responsibility shared by state and federal authorities. We wondered if they're doing enough to adapt to what seems to be a growing threat from wildfires year after year to help us answer that question. We called scott stevens. He's a professor at the university of california berkeley specializing in wildfires and forest management professor stevens. Welcome happy to be here. So let's start with a big question. Why do fire conditions seem to be getting worse and worse over time in california we have climate change in packing state with higher temperatures. More drought dry fuel. All this contributes to are already vulnerable conditions from fire suppression and past harvesting the other piece which is really difficult is so many people living in the wild at urban interface and this also causes great vulnerability. Quick point of information there. You mentioned the phrase wildland urban interface. Can you tell us what that is. Yes this is the area where we have people. Living in an among the wildland vegetation of californian elsewhere the united states. it's a place where maybe people are living on one egg number five acre. Lots sometimes are actually A subdivision right adjacent to forced or sometimes a shrub win so it really is an environment where you're right next to or within the wildland areas from fire behavior standpoint

I'm sure i've just barely scratched the surface of all the different presumably infant dimensions. There are out there jack. Strobe here my roommate is actually from one of these other dimensions.

I do hear some mangy senate dogs in the distance but i appear to be in a very disgusting looking trailer park as a whole row of single wides laid out here in front of me in various states of extreme disrepair. I'm standing right in front of one heinous off. The roof is sagging a windows. I don't know if they've ever been cleaned. There's nobody around outside here. So i guess i'm just gonna head up to this closest one here and given a knock and see somebody's around you can learn a little bit about this dimension. Hopefully this whole dimension isn't like this. I don't know steps here and knock on the. Oh just just swung open okay. Anybody home hello There's no answer peaked. My head in. Here oh i think oh oh he hit it. Just hit me as a really not a great smell okay. But i'm looking inside. I think i see jack stroke. But he's is he. Hey are you. Okay hey oh. I think something may be wrong here.

I didn't hear you activate. No that wasn't shown. I watch the the crime. I read newer tech novels that the murderer often returns zia the crime. Not okay i for the first person i think back now. Okay therefore you are okay. And i called the rate first off not a murderer. I have never set foot in this trailer nor this entire trailer park before today before moments ago all those as our exactly whatever say. I'm sure it is okay. This is also. You appear to be strobe are you. Some kind of artificial. Intelligence officials don't l. k Are you actually gesture jober. Do you just look and sound exactly like Been hologram many of his memories as his last checkpoint which unfortunately was a month ago. But i do have most of his time doubt for mary's face plus knowledge thing. That's great. what should i call you. You can call me jack. Strove find jack strobe. I'm just gonna head out I don't think there's anything i can do here. Her the knock on the door opened up now if you ever year murderer i don't think this guy here even got murdered. Well then first of all. I'm going to need some facts first of all you name effects your name. What's your name name is max. Max max was that show for max. Essential for anything. Your names just. Max max can be bothered with more syllables. That's fine you over that one. The call yes. Jack strove the whole graham gastro as natural checks out. That's right. he's not. Actually jackson object strobe. Is this guy here. the right. So here's the thing. I was going to ask you if you had any sort of connection to the deceased but it would appear that you already. At least his name. How do you know the deceased name. Sir what'd you say. Your name was max. What's that short for. Max wait now. we did. This dance already. Haven't we the charles the hotel coup. You see what i'm saying. Pal is it. Max how do you know this. Man right yeah. How do i know this guy. When i did say earlier that i've never set foot on this trailer park nor in this very strong for yourself. That's what i told. Jester polygram here. So obviously i met jetro outside of the trailer park somewhere else. We used to work together was we were. Coworkers workers bud me first of all. Where am i. Man is second of all my name actually. This is probably seventh of all. Because i've done a few things. But since i came in here but regardless of what number it is the name is dirk dirk pflueger. Oh excellent detective pflueger perfect yet. Detective works too friendly thing. But you know what i can be bad cop. It's alright this is great a respected member of the local community. I'm so glad you're here because obviously what's happened here is this hologram has confused me for somebody else. I've never been in here before. I was coming here to meet the locals and to check out the local scene and i knocked on the door and it was open and this guy was just here unfortunately deceased so blessed with all of the deceased memories up to about a month ago it's loosely. Drew that max of jack. That's lease a lot onset. They were in a sales. I should say we were stable organization together and jack myself basically stole a bunch of clients from match max mad thing not a theft investigator or fraud investigator. Really a good thing. I'm not any of those. I only specified justin murder. So even if you confess to like any number of crimes today doesn't matter anyway. You're dead continue. So in addition to seal the number of max clients the best terms. Well nothing illegal about that. Last part i did not murder him though. Listen archie gonna like look for evidence or something. I think you'll find that. There's no evidence here that i committed any crime. Well first of all sunny. I wanna let you now something you probably already as everybody knows the first three rules of motor investigation. That's right location. Location location those the rules of real estate and your in the location that i'm in right now which means you're on the location of the dead body. I just wanted to touch base with everyone in my location before i started investigating my location. That's right rule number two location now. We'll get to number three. After i finished examining the location. Is this murder investigation. Is this real estate. It'd be surprised. I often the crossover. Now here's the thing sunny boy. I'm gonna need you to give the facts. Jack. that's right. the facts two of 'em specifically on facts. I wanted to give me something. That's not if that that's something that delight. i want to give me true truths. I don't wanna give me lie. Doesn't have to necessarily be in that order. In fact it's a lot more fun if it's not hanging you said santa boy and you also said jack are you talking. Which one of us were you talking to all right jack in the colloquial sense your jack. Not jack okay. It's also a little confusing because he keeps popping his hologram around the room. Kind of just seemingly randomly chevy stranded like throw me off balance.

Metals That Work Like Magic
"A few weeks ago. The wall street journal featured an article about a man who was mining bitcoin from a computer in his house. The computer was working so hard. It was heating up the entire room. It coin put your computer through a lot of calculations and many of us are spending most of our time at home these days so the man found a way to use all that energy coming off of his computer he siphon date to heat a greenhouse and grow basil and cherry tomato. That's how much energy has computer was wasting and it's not just the bitcoin guy. All of the devices were using. Give off excess energy. How many times have you noticed your laptop. Scorching your thighs collectively. We lose billions of dollars every year because of this so-called waste heat. It got me thinking about futuristic alternatives. That could work to reduce that waste. So i reached out to an expert. I'm marvin cohen. I'm university professor of physics at the university of california at berkeley. Dr cohen explained that this waste heat from all of our devices happens because of friction too much friction from electrons the electrons. Go down the wire and they bump into things sort of in the wire is heated so they knocked around and that gives you resistance and the wire gets hot. Cohen says that friction is called electrical resistance. And it's just what happens when you conduct electricity. it's normal. It means that some of the energy gets lost but there is a way to get around it to manipulate the electrons. So the wires don't get hot and energy doesn't get lost so if you could bring them together and keep them together you'll have a superconductor

"Neely at UC Berkeley is hard to miss. It's three hundred feet tall. It's loud and clear days. You can see the distinctive white spike all the way from San Francisco. For a few bucks. You can even take an elevator ride to the top for a supreme view and rumor has it. But on the ride up you pass five floors of something strange hidden storehouse of dinosaur bones. This week on curious. We'll find out what's inside Berkeley's Campanile aka say their tower, aka that big point our on UC, Berkeley campus. I'm a price. Support for K Cutie comes from Penn host of the inaugural product craft conference. Join today's product management luminaries may ninth in San Francisco for day of inspiration and fun. Register now at product craft dot com podcast listeners get ten percent off with the code Pinto. Love. All right. We wanted to find out what's inside Berkeley's Campanile. It turns out that word is a talent for belltower science reporter, Daniel Potter. He met our question asker. Hi, kate. Hi, daniel. Good to meet, you can I get you to introduce yourself your name, and where we are. Shea. So hi, I'm Kate grocer. And right now, we are standing in front of the Campanile UC Berkeley clock tower on campus Kuce pitched candidate just a couple of buildings over I work on machine learning to analyse microscope. Images of nanoparticles cute heard a rumor from another student back when she was first torn campus around twenty fifteen the same year, Berkeley, celebrated the Campanile hundredth anniversary a rumor that the tower is full of dinosaur fossils. Hi, nice to meet. So we met up with two fossil experts. Dr Pat Holroyd I'm in charge of the vertebrate collections at the university of California museum of paleontology an professor Leslie Lusk oh, integrative biology. What are the rumors? You heard about the belltower? Basically that it's a huge store for dinosaur bones. It's always dinosaur bones. It's always dinosaur. But it's actually better really. Tire will. That's right. Game of thrones fans. Dire wolves were real free to the stock children. I will of your house Daryl's might extinct about ten thousand years ago. They're old but nowhere near close to dinosaur levels of old it probably not quite as scary and exciting as they have been made to be like the game of thrones. But they were definitely bigger than than wolves at around today. Dire wolves used to roam California more on them in a minute. There are also lots of other prehistoric bones in this belltower bird bones. Tiny shells, even parts of a big toothy swimming reptile called hydro thera Soroush which lived around the same time as the dinosaurs. But most of them are from more recent geologic times right here in California, the fossils that are here in the camp Neely are primarily from the libretto tar pits, which listeners may know from the museum in Los Angeles full of mammoths and sabertooth cats. It's the spot where underground tar has been bubbling to the surface for thousands of years, sometimes trapping and preserving wildlife the tar pits. A big interest for scientists in the early nineteen hundreds not long before the Campanile was built Berkeley, paleontologist went and started hauling back curious bones from extinct, horses and ground sloths all of which had to be stored somewhere. But around this time Holroyd says the Pilion tala department was relocated to a smaller building just as the Campanile was being completed. And they said, what are we going do with all our fossils? We need to have them here. They're active study could we use that space that empty space inside the Campanile to store the fossils. They wanted some place close by for students and faculty it worked out nicely. It turned out to be an ideal space to keep the fossils because there's not a lot else that could be house there without significant renovations to the Campanile itself spooky space. You wouldn't want your office in there? But fossil's don't care. One other reason to store these old bones away from anyone's office. You will definitely notice that there isn't a Roma there from a tar pit. And they were cleaned using kerosene the floors with bones, which are not open to the public have the smell and low industrial lighting of an old garage. So we're headed towards the dire workforce at right? Yeah. Two. So we're standing in a very tall concrete room. With you can see the basically, the skeleton of the campaign Neely itself all around old wooden shelves, featuring many many large lumpy bones on them of mammoths and marine reptiles and Wales there also old-timey wooden crates padded with hey and nailed shut like props from raiders of the lost ark. And some boxes were packed using newspapers. Dating back to win. A Roosevelt was in the White House. Kate what sticks out to you? There's just everything here. Like exactly like, I imagined it like giant bones? Like, I think is that a femur like, but it's like the size of my body as it turns out mammoth femurs are mammoths sore. These tarp fossils, the the blacker one. These actually are tarp it cost. So those are some vice and Joz giant bison. Not not the modern bison. But a extinct relative. A nearby the aforementioned predator that hounded them as part of the skull. With is that this is a dire. Yep. And when it's that that stained by the tar can has that nice threatening menacing feel. How far back in time. Do you reckon? They spend the oldest parts of the LA brea. Tar pits. Go back into the thirty thousand years ago, or whether dozens of skulls in this collection and also fragments, but you won't find much in the way of actual dinosaurs. In Berkeley's belltower dinosaurs weren't being found in excavated at the time that we first started putting fossils into the campaign. In fact, California's first dinosaur wasn't unearthed until some two decades later in the nineteen thirties, and they're somewhat rare in California to begin with a lot of what's now, California was underwater when dinosaurs roamed the land the bones in the Campanile tend to be more recent. Still as Holroyd and Lesko showed me and Kate to the upper floors. We did encounter one other charming denizen. What one of these goals over here? Camel? These are also another false Pam, wait frigging camels lives in California. Right. It turns out the state has a long history with camels there, even fossils found in southern California of a tiny ERC camel from around forty million years ago. Holroyd told us that one would have been pet sized. Indeed squeeze the skull of one of the first camels would be about the size of your hand. So it was a tiny animal, but with very very long legs. So it would maybe come up half way up your leg. So maybe it's head would be new your hip, but but just a very delicate tiny animal much larger Lum alight camels have turned up in the library. Tar pits. When we got to the top of the Campanile, we could just make out San Francisco in mount Tam through the fog. So what did you think? Amazing. The most like Indiana Jones I've ever felt to dire wolves. It sounds like despite the lack of dinosaurs. It was still worth the trip. Oh, yeah. Kate was not disappointed. No, not just as pointed at all. Yes. Dinosaurs are great. But. You know, all mammals cool to perr release old me on the camel, actually. Yeah, I'm feeling the camel like can I have a pet tiny camel? You know, drastic Park-style. That'd be cool. That would be cool. My dog would hate it.
