"Endgame and trying to break the political paralysis Carlos Cabello, you were the you wanted to introduce a carbon tax you were trying to at least start the debate about a carbon tax. But as we're watching what's unfolding, and France and the protests and the push back there. Is a carbon tax doable. Is this the way to do? It is a vice tax the way to go. It's the most efficient the most logical and probably the most politically viable solution. I think mayor Bloomberg and governor Brown tried to make this point that the key is that the people who are being taxed in this case. It would be all the American people trust that the revenues are going to be put to good use. And that's why in the Bill I filed we put almost all of it to infrastructure because we know that's popular in this country. And that most Americans believe that we have to invest in our infrastructure. We also set aside some funds to mitigate higher utility rates for lower income Americans that is the key. And we know this is true. Because in Miami, recently, they just passed a two hundred million dollar bond referendum property tax increase to fund coastal infrastructure because the citizens understood that the funds were going to be put to good use in other words to protect them. But it does seem as if the regressive nature that hats and. How do you again the person that doesn't live near an easy too, easy to access public transportation point and the cost of fossil fuels? Right. But I think if you can make them see the question is can you make people see the value in that tax that is actually taxes with quickest way to change behavior. And if it will help people if it will ensure that you have cleaner air that you have less extreme weather events that you have access to clean water people. See a value in it. They might buy into it. Most trusted institutions are the military these days, and it does seem as if since. In the military. There's been more experience with seeing it in real time. Military tends to be very clear eyed and pragmatic about threats, and it's a planning culture. So they they like to look way off into the future. And what's interesting is while the Trump administration has been trying to take reference to the wrong word climate change out of the national security strategy out of the defense strategy out of the OJ reports and to cut funding where it can meanwhile, the congress in the last two national defense authorization acts have played has played a really really important role sort of putting in reporting requirements every service has to dentistry, the ten most vulnerable basis and mitigation efforts. You have to come up with an Arctic strategy for when the ice melts you have to as a combatant commander factor climate change into your operational planning. This gives the department top cover. I actually think there's a role for the military as that respected institution to be true. Speakers to say, this is real were planning it for it. We're going to have. To spend money on it to be able to continue to protect the country. So, you know, let's get over it and get this is an interesting dynamic in the congress as the president has acted irresponsibly on climate and made some reckless comments more and more Republicans in the house have moved to embrace this issue to accept the science. When I got to congress in two thousand fifteen were maybe two or three Republicans even willing to utter the words climate change today, we have over forty on the record acknowledging that this is a real issue that requires government action. And they went on the record by joining the bipartisan climate solutions caucus, Craig Fugate. We were talking during the break about you thought you were acquainting into the tobacco companies and issues. And and I'm curious what you make of the lawsuit strategy that we're seeing now actually the crab fisherman four lawsuits were outlining here. These are just this year lawsuits against oil companies. The crab fisherman. Versus thirty fossil fuel companies the state of New York versus Exxon, the state of Rhode Island versus Chevron city of Baltimore versus BP sort of this idea of holding them accountable. Is that a smart strategy while we saw what happened tobacco the individual suits that make any difference? But when all the state attorney general's got together and sued big tobacco. They settled investors are going to want to protect their investments, and they see these exposures getting worse. And I think this is the other part of the carbon tax we have to price risk what it really cost and not continue. I mean think about over one hundred billion dollars last year was put disastrous that could have been saved if we had been doing stuff ahead of time. So I think part of this is how do we price our risk? So we're not building it the same way. We've always done. But I think investors are gonna probably drive this even faster than government regulations because they're seeing the shortsightedness of investments that have multidex to pay back that are going to be disrupted in years. Yeah. You're already seeing that in the energy sector. I mean, we had twenty coal plants that have been retired. This year coal is at its lowest point since one thousand nine hundred seventy nine when Jimmy Carter put solar panels on the White House the first time, and when you look at what utility companies are doing DT in Michigan in southeastern Michigan. This year broke ground on a new natural gas plant a billion dollar investment. Retiring five coal plants are investing in renewables. Economically, cold doesn't make sense anymore natural gas renewables, Dr Barbara, I'm curious. The impact of the Trump administration has rollback a few of the actions of the Obama administration put in that was targeted at some climate issues. They did a freeze on the gas mileage standards sort of reversed Obama regulations EPA rollbacks methane rules. Trump CPA also a rollback other rules having to do with coal. How much has that satisfaction is at a decade back as it take. How much time does it take to get this get back on the path that we were three years ago? I mean, it's not a good idea. But I think we have seen a lot of action in the private sector, and at the state level, and more importantly, I think at the local level. So I think that's not a yes or no question. That's not a black or white question. We have, you know, President Trump has signalled his intent to withdraw from the Paris agreement. But we've seen this movement called we are still in people are still adhering to the Paris goals. So I think I'm not gonna say it's good news because it's not. But I think it's not necessarily as catastrophic as might otherwise be what what I guess. Are there is there any individual actions anymore or is this just so large an individual? I mean is this one of these remember going back to Jimmy Carter? Hey, you know, it was this collective action. If everybody can do their little part, it feels like with climate change. It doesn't like it's all stock. We really do need national policy that will become international policy. That's why in a lot of these carbon probably make changes as a country with galvanize. Is there a way to galvanize Craig Fugate way to galvanize the disasters? I think are starting this process. This is no longer something. That's in the future. I mean wanted to regulations they roll back was a federal flood management standard which sets quick building. One foot was Bill two feet above flood levels. They rolled it back, which meant all the disastrous in the last two years. We just missed all that rebuilding to build a future. What would you do if you could do this shake us by the lapel? I I get frustrated because I hear this administration say two things first of all when they talk about pulling out of Paris. They talk about they say, look, we reduce greenhouse gas emissions. We've reduce greenhouse gas emissions because people who've turned away from coal. And yet. That's exactly what this administration is promoting just makes no sense. All right. What a tremendous our? Thank you guys for your time and thoughts on much appreciate it. That's all we have for today. Thank you for this Sunday morning on behalf of.

We love close elections. And I think you know, what we're seeing this isn't just in Florida. But we're seeing this across the country is it in many of these Senate races Republicans overperforming expectations doing quite well, but still in these house races, the challenge Republicans are facing is quite clear already in the state of Florida. You've had some races, for instance, Carlos Cabello in south Florida conceding defeat in his race. You you've just got this big divide between what we're going to see happen in the Senate and the house that he thinks is going to lead both parties to walk away from election night having declared victory, Kristen Solta, Sanderson watching the races with us.

Now, you'll Bill Nelson in the Senate seat that is one where Democrats are on the defense. They have to hold onto that. And if they can't hold onto that then their chances of taking the Senate are looking really, really slim. Yeah. And with thirty nine percent of the precincts. Reporting now in Florida. So it's still reasonably early go. Go going with look it up close. It may be Bill Nelson at fifty one percent and Rick Scott at forty nine percent. This is one genie. Did the Democrats were very worried about losing to look in recent days. Like, maybe Bill Nelson was getting a better position better position. And fascinating. Some people suggest that it is the goat gubernatorial race, which is helping Bill Nelson. You know, this sort of energetic young Tallahassee mayor whose energized young people on the democratic side. May interestingly help Bill Nelson who otherwise may have had a tougher time getting out the vote that he needs. I mean, obviously, it's still very close to call at this point and a Republican candidate for governor who's perceived by some to be a little bit outside the mainstream well outside the mainstream. Okay. And and very much aligned himself with President Trump. And and it's just hoping the president can carry him to victory. I wanted to get to the point that genie made earlier that the places where you know, the president's helping the Senate he's not helping the house Florida is that and I'm watching Carlos Cabello who many people thought that hold on one more time, but very very late starting to see his leads fana- bit in part because of the president's rhetoric on immigration, not popular.

"Two of the most watched districts in the country did a BBC special on the midterm elections. They wanted to highlight six different regions of the country and the tossup elections as the case may be in south Florida here, we have the two most heavily democratic districts currently represented by Republicans in the United States house their district twenty six and twenty seven in Florida. In district. Twenty six you had Hillary Clinton win in that district in two thousand sixteen by sixteen points, but you had Carlos Cabello the current Representative who's a Republican win by five or six points. How does that happen? That one happened in other parts of the country, right? I mean, there are too many people have just both the ticket if you're playing for Hillary Clinton, how could you vote for any Republican congressionally? Again, what I was just mentioning not as. Conventional as the not so conventional, wisdom or wise thought would have you think there's a lot more to the story. We start talking about Hispanics and immigrants that wanted better life. And district twenty seven. You have Hillary Clinton. Having won that district by twenty points, twenty points, and you had deal. Retiring Ileana Ros-Lehtinen win that district. I ten.

Marco Rubio on Hurricane Michael's destruction: 'A total wipeout'
"Not on the coast. These are rural areas a lot of them have older residents poorer residents people that could not have accurate, even if they wanted to many living, manufactured housing and mobile homes, large mobile homes, not but nonetheless mobile homes, multi-agency properties off of dirt roads, who are completely isolated at this very moment. And I know crews are working hard to get to them. But these are the first people these are the likeliest people to be forgotten. I think that is where the real challenges lie ahead in the next few days in terms of saving lives and and getting to people quickly. All right. Let me switch topics now to the case of Jamal kashogi. You said that if it turns out that Saudi Arabia had something to do with his murder that quote, a complete revolt against our policies with Saudi Arabia when take place in congress, where do you think the state of that revolt is and what are the possible range of actions? Congress could take. Well, on the first point I think it everyone's waiting to find out. Exactly what happened. And frankly, this is the kind of case where we may never know exactly what happened all a denial. But that said there is real news reports out there that there is some sort of audio video evidence of what occurred if that were to emerge or any other facts were to emerge or frankly of questions here unanswered, there's no video of him leaving that facility. There's gonna be a big problem. I can just tell you that in congress right now there is no pro-saudi element. That's going to stick with our relationship with Saudi Arabia as it's currently structured if in fact, they Lord this man into this consulate killed them. And then, you know, cut up his body and Senate team to go into that country to kill him in the first place. It's just an unacceptable thing. We should never accept that. From anyone in the world. It undermines our credibility and our moral authority around the planet to go after regimes like Putin's or Madero in Venezuela or others as far as the options that are concerned. People talk a lot about the arms sales. Our relationship with Saudi Arabia extends Welby on arms sales as well. And I would just say it's unfortunate because Saudi Arabia is an important part of our Middle Eastern strategy. They are a key leverage and hedge point against the rainy and influence in the region. But that cannot supersede our commitment to human rights. Let me ask you about the moral question here. The president has recently secured the release of Andrew Brunson from Turkey so working on the one hand on that account. But in this account, he said, basically because there's one hundred ten billion as he claims arms purchases on on order from Saudi Arabia that, you know, that's that's essentially more important or has to be weighed here in the response. Give me your sense of of your reaction to that that moral position the president our free. Yeah. I would've phrased that differently. It's not about the money. There are plenty other countries that would want to buy arms from the US. And frankly that I I would have phrased it very differently. The important thing is that when you saw arms to a country. So it's true. What he said that they can buy from China Russia or anybody else when you sell arms to Saudi Arabia. It gives. Leverage over them because they need replacement parts any the training. So it's the kind of you know, you can't sanction a country by cutting them off of something. Have you never provided in the first place? So it is true that arms sales gives us leverage. You mentioned leverage. Were you surprised? The president set up front that these arms sales were something that he wanted to protect in other words, aren't those isn't that your leverage in your in your argument with the Saudis, and he sort of said right away. Those are two important to mess with look if you don't sell arms, they're going to buy them anyways. And then in the future when you want influence Saudi behavior on another topic. You're not gonna have anything to threaten them whether anything to hold over their head. But to me it isn't about the money. I don't know if the president had just been briefed. And that's kind of how he used it or expressed it, but the bottom line is. I mean, they're the money. There's no way. There's no there's no enough money in the world for us to buy back our credibility on human rights. If if we do not move forward and take swift action on this. If in fact, even when it's proven to be true. Let me ask you a question about climate change in the wake of hurricane Michael congressman. Carlos Cabello Republican colleague of yours believes that Republicans need to stop questioning the science behind climate change. He said that that America was saddling young Americans with an environmental debt that was as bad as the fiscal debt. What's your response to that? Why respect Carlos tremendously he's been a leader on that topic? My view is climate sea level rise. These are measurable things you can measure that. So it's not even a scientific debate. At some point. It's just a reality debate. You can measure whether sea levels are higher than they used to be warmer than used to be in the like for as a policymaker, the fundamental question is what can we do about it? And if in fact, humans are contributing to that what public policy can we pursue that you can actually pass does not destroy your Konami at can be effective. But what the congressman and others? You're saying is is that if you believe the science about human contribution that there are mitigation efforts, you can take with greenhouse gases, and that that's where there needs to be a little more focus from Republicans is on admitting that that climate change is caused by human activity and taking actions, whether it's coal plants or emissions from cars or methane gas to actually get get it where the problem is occurring. The increase has come from the developing world and in other places, but we're not a planet where country and the question. Becomes I think in my mind. Anyway, the debate has been necessarily about always about whether or not it's human contribution. It's about whether the public policies that are being advocated would be effective. So in light of the fact that another places carbon emissions continue to grow. And by the way, technology is moving us in the direction that those who support those measures want us to go anyway. So your view then Senator is that humans are the chief contributor to climate change in this recent period. My view is that that's what a lot of scientists say, I think there are others. That dispute what percentage of that is humans and not. I'm a policymaker. There's no way that I can never debate where they scientists are people who spend their whole life on that public policy. I can I can accept this. And that is that we're going to have a debate about human contribution because scientists are saying that, and you know, if you're saying something different. But if we're going to have that debate about whether certain law should be passed in order to alleviate what some scientists are a lot of scientists are saying is the cause of this that has to be balanced with the public interest and other topics like the economy in the like, okay. Well, we're we're out of time. We'll have to leave it there. Senator. Thanks so much for being with us. Thank you. And we turn now to Maryland Senator Chris van Hollen who among other things is in charge of his party's efforts to elect more Democrats to the Senate this cycle. Welcome senator. I want to start where I left off with Senator Rubio you are on the environmental community and in the Senate. What did you make of the senator's remarks will look in the same week that we saw hurricane Michael flattened, the Florida, panhandle. We had this report from the world's leading climate scientists saying climate change is hurting us today. And it's only getting worse and the same time you have Trump administration a lot of Republicans who just want to put their head in the sand. They don't wanna hear the information, and we should start by not making things worse. This administration and Republicans in congress are actually rolling back auto emission standards, rolling back clean power plant rule. So let's stop making things worse. And we definitely need to take action to make Senator Rubio's point in the administration. Point. Which is why don't you come in? With all these regulations, you choke off the economic recovery that that America's in the middle of now. Well, the reality is we've had auto emission standards in place for many many years. And in fact, the auto industry has grown substantially the reality is that there are a lots of economic opportunities when it comes to investing in clean energy, and energy efficiency, and those are homegrown jobs. Wind solar these are homegrown jobs. These aren't jobs where you're importing oil from Saudi Arabia, for example, let me switch to politics a couple of weeks ago in the Senate people were writing about, hey, Democrats have a chance there writing that less these days. What happened? Well, what we've said from the beginning is this is a very tough political map for Senate Democrats probably the toughest we've seen in sixty years. The fact that people were talking about Democrats taking back a majority of the Senate shows, how strong we have been and what kind of momentum we've got so. I've said from day one that we have a credible path to a Democratic Senate Majority. It is a narrow path. And there are so many very tight seats that this is all about turnout at this point. Two things related to the cabin on nomination. I I wanna get your sense you talked to a number of your constituents who reached out to you during the confirmation process. And then you said they were their statements were reminders of how our society has let down survivors of sexual assault. For decades. Have you heard from or what have you heard from constituents in the wake of a confirmation? Well, I heard from more than fifty of my constituents out women who had experienced sexual assault sexual trauma years ago and had never told their own parents at the time in many cases, had not told members of their families today, and it was a powerful reminder of the progress we need to make in this country when it comes to sexual assault. So when you have the president is states at big rallies belittling, Dr Ford, he is belittling, although survivors of sexual assault.

"We really didn't start taking off until two thousand nine when when Mark was hired as our executive director, but yeah, in in terms of, you know, making progress with Republicans, it's it's, it's been kind of an uphill battle. And we had our first big breakthrough at the beginning of twenty sixteen when we were able to convince, you know, Carlos Cabello from Florida to join with Ted Deutch a democrat from from Florida to create the bipartisan climate solutions caucus. And so so now it now we have a group that's evenly divide. Ended between Republicans and Democrats who are they're saying, okay, let's stop pointing fingers at each other and shouting. And you know, using all of this, you know this vitriolic rhetoric. You know that that really doesn't get us anywhere and have a decent conversation about this. And the challenge. Has been? Yeah, there's a, there's a lot of money out there that is keeping Republicans from doing what a lot of them really wanted to a lot of Republicans. I recognize that we have a problem and they want to do something about it, but they also want to keep their seat in congress. And so so the coke brothers figured out along time ago that you know, they don't have to put pressure on, you know, both parties to stymie progress on climate solutions. All they have to do is scare the Jesus out of Republicans and that'll keep them in line. So you have that elements of that. There's there's fear. There's genuine fear on on the part of Republicans to to step up on this issue because they think they'll get primary out of their seat or something like that. I mean, you actually saw that with Bob. English in South Carolina in in twenty ten, you know, he, he became the sort of the cautionary tale there. He actually introduced a carbon tax Bill in in two thousand nine, and he was primary out of his seat, Trey Goudy was the one who who unseated him, and a lot of that was because of his position on climate change. So so what we have to do as constituents and as an organization is to demonstrate to them that if they're if they step up on this, we'll have their backs. We'll will flood the newspapers with letters to the editor op EDS. And and really, you know, do the things that need to be done on the local level, like getting endorsements from from chambers of commerce and city councils and things like that. I think if you can, you know, want to show any member of congress, regardless of what part of their went once. Show them that they have support in the district step up on an issue, they will step up and so that's it's been a challenge. But you know, we, we've looked at the challenge and said, okay, now what are the things we need to do to overcome that challenge? And we're doing those in right, and now we have a climate solutions caucus that has eighty six members of forty, three of them Republicans. And so, yeah, that's that's. Is ended assuming this is all in post world very building toward mattered UCLA prospecting building. However, years was president. So so basically you're saying, okay, so if congress, if by some miracle we can pass a Bill in the house and then by bigger miracle pass one in the Senate in a won't the trunk veto than than Emerson chemistry, congresses subject to his presidency, really goes beyond counting numbers..
