"Gross Domestic Product the GDP is a simple way to describe the health of big complicated economies, and for the last century, the goal of many countries has been to make their GDP. Go Up, but concentrating only on GDP has had some downsides in growing the economy we have as an unintended consequence, destroyed parts of nature which are also important for our well-being Stephen Polaski an environmental economist at the University of Minnesota. He and his colleagues have created a new measurement, the gross ecosystem product or P. So that we actually have metrics that say. How are we doing on ecosystem management, managing nature, and not just for Nature Sake, but how is that coming back and influencing our own well-being? really G EP is trying to say what is the contribution of nature to the economy so in a parallel way to what GDP does in measuring economic performance tallying up the economic. Economic value of timber and fisheries is fairly straightforward, but other benefits of a healthy environment can be less obvious. Insects pollinate crops. Intact rivers improve water, quality and buffer downstream cities from floods, thriving ecosystems draw tourists who spend money and part of the issue here is that it is difficult to price some of these things you know. Some people even say while they're price less. What it means in practice, priceless means it has zero value in much of the calculations, zero value in the GDP, but not in the EP for example Pulaski and his colleagues calculated the figure for Qinghai a province in western China, they found that the gross ecosystem product exceeded GDP in the year two thousand and three quarters of GDP in twenty fifteen over that period GDP rose by one hundred and twenty seven percent thanks to major restoration efforts and the increasing value of water. The results are in the proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The researchers focused on Ching Hai because it's one of several provinces where the Chinese government is experimenting with using GP as part of its formal decision making process for instance, GDP can help officials weigh the pros and cons of potential projects like dams, or it can be used to show whether local leaders are taking care of the environment and not just expanding the economy. GP could also serve as the basis for programs that pay residents to be good stewards of the natural resources that benefit themselves and others and Ching Hai such a program could work for water. The province is where the Yellow Yangtze and Mekong rivers originate, and their water sustained cities and farms across Asia. Polaski says their work is just a first step, and he expects EP to be refined over time, but he says we have to start somewhere. We are actually going to have a sustainable civilization than than we have to pay attention to kind of the infrastructure, basically the essential things that nature does for us and not continue to just take them for granted.

"Of risk and funds. At ching Hai university. So my co first of all let's take a look at the mixed economic data for April slow grows seeing in retail sales and industrial productions so what does this tell us about the economy as a whole and one of the main reasons of it, I think first of all it's important to note that that those figures are not reflecting the very recent changes or change of timber in the trade talks with the United States, but rather may be a reflection of some variation. They came from early earlier in the year, the first diversity months on the year, the central government was stimulating the economy, primarily through loosening funds for borrowing and investing, and then I think the sided that there had been enough of that stimulus so they decided to draw back bit. And I think that what we're seeing is is the. The perhaps the cool a little bit of cooling of the economy as a result of less stimulus in the fourth fifth month than earlier in the year. What you know, how the overall impact of the trade talks will be I don't know. But I don't think that this should be to surprising given that we were wear that. There was a stimulus, and we're also wear that the government was going to contain the stimulus at a certain point. So what do you think of this? You know investments in the high tech manufacturing and the high tax of a sector grow foster of at over eleven percent and fifteen percent respectively. So what does it tell us about the me? I the first thing it tells us that in the short run of these areas. These high tech areas continue to do well and the trying to continues to be a leader in the world and this area. And of course, we'll be competing with other nations in the high tech area as. As we go forward. But I think that it also tells us that if you look at the overall rate of growth in GDP in China, you will you will find that more more and more. It's being supported by these areas these sectors of the market, and and so they become more and more significant over time. Also, the investments in realises actually picked up pace to eleven point nine percent in the first full year for months, so we'll the housing markets be hot again. What does it mean that liquidity going again to the housing market? I think that that's a very interesting statistic that item that there has been picking up pace, and that sort of runs counter to stories that might be constructed regarding the cooling of the economy and the uncertainty that's caused by international trade disputes. But I think it may be consistent with the. The idea of the government central government, providing some stimulus making more money available to investors. I don't think it's the government's desire that that money should go into the real estate sector, but inevitably some of it on has gone there because that is a popular place for investors to take it in terms of, you know, what this means I don't think that it's really that's sustainable, if the economy continues to to cool a bit in the next few months because investors may may be taking some of the funds and investing in the real estate market. But it's not clear that that they will have customers. They're eager to invest in it, given what else is going on in the economy. Seen a slower grossing in the retail sales. But what do you think about the consumption is the consumption Stu strong by large? I think it's strong. But I will you know in the aggregate, it will inevitably be affected by by both cooling of the economy and uncertainty resulting from from international trade disputes. I think that if we look at, you know, the different sectors of consumer behavior of the luxury brands or low end, the shifts that maybe for example, within within the automobile industry, the higher priced cars versus the lower price cars..

She also had strong words for the social media companies that enable the shooter to broadcast as massacre around the world, we will. Look at the role social media played and what steps we can take including on the international stage and in unison without partners. There is no question that ideas and language of division and hate have existed for decades, but they form of distribution the tolls of organization, they are new. We cannot simply sit back and accept that these platforms just exist, and it what a seat on them. It's not the responsibility of the place with their published.

But first of all, let's start was this professor, maybe do think this is an attack made by and for the internet. Yes. Agreed. The reason why this kind of this kind of attack get so much attention on the internet use. I think social media plead as a very important catalyst to spread such kind of. You know, you fact, and also the terrorists the just aim to sort of you know, kind of creed this kind of public panic. So I think in this process social media, actually is very very important element to sort of amplify the effect of such kind of the terrorist attack. And this is the sense that this is the tack of meat by the internet, and for the because, you know, as as we know that the terrorist the shooter, actually he deliberates of. Plant a kind of the camera on his helmet and in this process. Actually, he used this camera to to capture the whole thing. I just try to lively broadcast through the through the.

But you have to, you know, find the best trade. So Michael, what's your idea about this? You know, the session ability of the railway or especially the high speed railway. I would agree with Winston the it's very important not to build railways or any sort of infrastructure that will not be useful in the long run. It is true though, on the other hand that some infrastructure may have to be subsidised indefinitely simply because it serves portions of the country which have a low population, and but still need services in order to to maintain growth in those areas. I think that what what's helpful is that that within China's economy, which is managed by the government, it it's possible to make those decisions and to make just -ment in other aspects of the economy to keep the infrastructure or to make sure that it's profitable. Where it's more difficult is in.

The president has also said he might declare a national emergency in order to build his spotter wall for more on this. We're now joined on the line by Rick Donham, co director of the global business journalism program. Was ching Hai university. Good evening, Dr Donham, thanks for joining us. Well, so don't what form finally decided to temporarily end the shutdown of Friday for three weeks. But he then tweeted that his decision was not a concession. But was taken care of the millions of people who were getting badly hurt by the shutdown. But what do you make this move to temporarily reopened the government? Well, his explanations after the fact have been confusing, but I think that there may have had something to do with the indictment of Roger stone. His closest political advisor for thirty years on issues related to the Russian meddling in the last US election because it was several hours later that he that he made the announcement. But but going to the shutdown of he was he was taxed very harshly by some of his closest allies for caving into the Democrats. And so I think that the rhetoric you heard yesterday is an attempt to to to try to try to shore up his base, and the result is we don't know what's going to happen going forward because he has left these mixed messages. Optimism is there that you lawmakers they can Richard deal on the border security in three weeks to avoid perhaps another government shutdown. Very good question. My view is that the members of the Senate, the Democrats and Republicans are very close, and they could reach a deal. I mean, I I believe they could reach deal in two hours. I think that it might take a little longer for the Senate and the house because there are the two two sides of the capitol to reach a deal. But I think Democrats in the house are willing to give money for border security, even the amount that President Trump is asked for as long as there is no building of a new wall. And so I think there's room for compromise. The problem is that the president one day. We'll say one thing one day, we'll say the next, and it's it's like the Goshi hitting where the child who..

"Difficult situation suggests that they are many foreigners taking advantage of the loopholes in the immigration laws and moving into the country illegally. But do you think the are any options on the table for Donald Trump to deal with this ingratiates, you well, I do think that I mean both sides of the immigration debate have been arguing for several years that United States should stop illegal immigration. So I mean in that case there's not a lot of support for people crossing the border illegally or overstaying their visas if they came to the United States as tourist or student to then say that we want to stay here permanently. Without permission. I think there's general agreement on that that the the issues that are question. Our number one refugees who is a legitimate refugee claim that they that they are a political or economic refugee. That's why there's disagreement Donald Trump wants to just cut it off. He wants to change the law, and that's one where Democrats and a lot of Republicans disagree with him. I think that there is widespread agreement in the country on a lot of this. Donald Trump is in the minority, but he's president. And he's using his executive power to lock up children to divide family and to send the military to the border. I don't think any of these things are popular, but he has the power and he's using them.

Do you think the election result will in any way influence, the Trump administration's trade policies, you know, that's a really good question. And it's a very difficult question. I think there's a chance that Trump will try to cool down the rhetoric on trade Friday, find negotiated settlement to the trade dispute with China before it damages the economies of both countries. But I also could see the opposite that he feels emboldened not only to challenge China or to challenge Russia, but he already said that he was going to. To drop out of the nuclear weapons deal with Russia, but also continued to challenge the EU and other traditional allies. So I could see it happening either way. I mean, I I am optimistic though, perhaps not rationally about a settlement to the US China trade dispute.

I'm, I can't even conceptualize the kinds of being unfazed. And then the desert I would say was pretty pretty average, right? Yeah. So I would say, you know, interesting menu. I think it's interesting that they have different items. You could go to. You could make your meal and in the morning, garbage grove and then head on over to Clermont, Huntington beach, three totally different.

"One hundred percent notice today playing. And it just on a loop in there in otherwise, fairly normal, looking restaurant outside of a few presences of supreme Master Ching Hai. And actually I'm gonna play a little bit of this because it is live streaming on the website and we can kind of get a sense of what this is. So here's the kind of thing you'll hear on supreme master tv.com, distribute the relief items in the knob of the rain, gay within Baggio city. The destruction was overwhelming with many houses and properties completely destroyed due to a landslide one local woman shared her heartbreaking story. So this is like a really closely medically, Scott on news, broadcast right now. Slate, one, boom behind in sound monk, father among Ingold walk. Oh, this is some sort of natural disaster in the Philippines, but the screen it has covered with so much tax. Some titles, subtitles in every language and. It's kind of it's just a weird presence because it'll have like footage of things like this. And then we'll also have footage of people giving faith demonstrations and also have like, what did you people making vegan recipes? It's just like kind of intersperses between them. Some things that are just like like verses on the screen that are being it's, it's it's a strange eclectic sort of a television station. Well, you can also tell from like the bells ringing in the music or whatever. Like there's just weird sounds coming from it. So you hear like little bells or. Right, like kind of like that that little music happening every so often it was. It was. It was weird, train, let a stranger audio cues. Definitely the the strangest feature of this place. This was the Huntington beach. Location was a new location. It's open about it opened about a month ago so they seemed a little like they were still figuring it out in terms of service like there was, it was unclear whether you order the table or versus you order at the counter or at the counter? I paid there, but they still brought me a Bill and explained it already paid, and they were like. Very politic. Everyone's very nice, but it was just like clearly a little a little chaotic this. I mean this chain in, I guess there is just it is almost openly rely. I mean, like the Jing ching. Her name is Jing high, right? Yes. I mean, it feels of all the restaurants went for October blessed. Yes. This one felt like the most like this feels like there's something here. You know what I mean wearing it on their sleep on the menu. There's there's messages from supreme Master Ching Hai. A lot of it is talking about like there's a lot of evangelizing about veganism about its value to, you know, basically into the. To the to the planet with you would like it because when you're in there, it's like like, go vegan and become a hero. Why looked at the menu? When I was ordering and I was like, it is kind of flattering Zun saying the world. There's a lot of things that they're which is. I mean, I think it's an admirable, admirable thing, and it is very nice. It's just as a very strange vibe and also this is this is one of our our bigger international chains really because there's there's places in Europe, South America, Asia, North America, Africa Australia. Yeah, they're in and out burgers all over the world. There are. There are. There are loving huts forgot for one, but but not not. I'm not saying like this is one of the biggest internet done, but but but the funny thing is, is that there's only one hundred forty restaurant, right? So that's a pretty low number for something that's global. Railing in every place, I believe has kind of like a different, like not a completely different menu with the menu switched up a little bit. They take some liberties. They don't have a, the franchises are commanded like with a Wendy's where you.

"Hundred locations. In addition to that worldwide, there mostly concentrated Asia supreme, Master Ching Hai is from Vietnam. There's a lot of locations there, and this was a chain I hadn't actually had even heard of prior to this us doing this exercise Roger, you ever heard of loving hut did not. And when you first I thought it was Pizza Hut. And I was like. Pizza. Like pizza auto corrected to loving. Never heard of. You were pizza? I did, yeah. What were you doing? Pizza Hut. I was a cook. Wait. So how how old were you working there? This is like your first job. I was. It was my first job. I was sixteen, and then I also worked there in college when I was twenty one. So you you worked in like the old huts basically like the actual restaurants. One of them was a delivery carry out on a great, and then it's now also got a wingstop. And really, really got. Then the other one was like we had like the buffet and everything. Zap buffet better times shit. That's that's what made America. Great. Just bring back the buffet. The pizza buffet. I take it easy. Because I said, that's what made it great. I did actually. I do really like the, there's still an old Shakey's near where we work. Free-standing. I read on Santa Monica boulevard and it's like I like those places where it's like a pizza parlor. We can go in there and you can sit and hang out the Hudson. Fortunately, I actually think now is the time when Pizza Hut they were trying to rebrand of the hut for a time. I think now is the time should open like a half dozen in big cities of old school Pizza Hut shaped. And yeah, exactly. Just open them up and they'll become attractions, partly for nostalgia, partly because be craving that sort of even get any started on Dunkin, which it's now call buck and bullshit mistake. Fucking sucks. Hey, you know how much I love it, but, hey, I got, I got a question for you. Wouldn't it be funny to be in Shakey's during an earthquake. Yeah, you'd be like a mid shaky and they'd be like, yeah, I know Shakey's Bill, which shaky so in this situation, the employee doesn't get that an earthquake is happening. Yeah, it'd be someone they didn't quite know what was going on yet. You're trying to convey the gravity of the situation and when an earthquake happens, it shaky right every ten. Lifelong southern Californian Northridge, quake. It's shaky, yelled at shake. Immediately. So what was your like? Did you have a good impression of Pizza Hut? Did you long for Pizza Hut? Is someone who used to work there ever. I, I would say like one really interesting about working there was it was incredibly diverse. Like I think Lee and up and down like the education ladder and everything like I was going college right one time people hadn't gone. It was just a really interesting place to work. That's cool. Employees are the clientele or or mostly the employee's. The employee? Yeah, yeah. I mean, the Clinton didn't have a ton of interfacing question the question. I don't know. Clientele is all over the map, whatever I will tell you this. When I worked at the second time I went in for the interview and I basically said, you know, he used to work at one like guys like, oh, you're hired the manager and I come back. Oh, you know, he's come comeback Saturday. It's something like go back Saturday at six, and I'm like, oh, we had a fire muse doing a heroin in the freezer. Okay, the guy you hire, did you still have a job guy goes, we'll tell me about yourself. I used to work here and like when I was six hired. And then he then he got fired for the same reason. Just like in the freezer. So weird. She's, but. So Rick Pizza Hut? Yeah, the guy got fired relaxed during his shift. It's stressful. I think they were introducing the edge pizza at the time. Everyone was on. All of America. We all well, two different pass to to loving. I went to the Huntington beach location, and this was a terrier design of these. It's kind of like, you know, it's, it's very, what did you go..

So the thing that was going to say in your defenses, the less ten dodger games I've been to, I left early because if you don't, you're stuck there for an hour and a half. It's been that way. I ran into Eric heresy of the day. It's been that way since he played. I mean, they've never figured out traffic flow in that stadium. So I understand what you did, but but as Bob Costas said, after it was over, where were you going? It was like eight o'clock on a Saturday night. You were just going. I was really Mason. Those is really go to parties. We're going to a party that night in and I use it as an excuse. 'cause normally probably would not even have gone, but while we're on the phone Mace, yes, say it say it. Mike trout is better than yes, yo. He came on our show. I asked him, there were both coming up, you know, both exploding and I said, long-term, who do you take. And without hesitation. He said, yes, yelp wake, he's going to have the better career, Steve. I do you one better. We used to do a thing called crossfire, which was a takeoff on the old CNN show where we would each argue one side of an argument and let the colors decide who is right and for an hour. I argued for trout and Mace argued for and I won, but it was ten to nine. That's how at one point those guys were, you know, the city looked at those two guys and now I know that in the excitement was with plea, but no, heterosexual greatness in every way.

I absolutely agree. I mean, there's something every moment you know. You know, instead of something happening like every year and a half, there's something happening every two days, right? It is a matter of fact, it's hard to get away from it. It's it's sad, exciting, Ireland, I wanna picture what you sound like.

"ching hai" Discussed on The Science Hour
"We have these huge backlogs because it may be a couple of weeks worth of ocean expedition, or we doing fieldwork, but they might material you collect will be tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands of specimens, naturally, collections and museum collections in general. Normally, constant news. It does matter because it's not just the fact that these objects have been examined in the past all the time. There are new theories or new techniques coming out, which means songs wants to reexamine an object. Yes. It does have locations for the future. So feature scientists in future research. So almost every natural specimen is under constant scrutiny and rescreening museum specimens act like a fragment of the material record of life on earth. And so we've new techniques also with basically people becoming specialists and things that we never had specialists before, constantly coming back to collections and either applying new techniques or really undertaking basic research now. So I don't really static objects, and this is the really side things about the future of research because essentially we lost that historical record. We just missing those key data points from the past which are represented in collections. Mark carnal the Oxford museum of natural history. David, you become rather fascinated by China's remarkable renewable energy program. That's probably especially it's huge solar farms, which are really, I'm absolutely punch when they have. They produce. They could produce that total possible capacity with one hundred forty gigawatts which would be enough to power the whole of the UK several times over and all of the solar panels were used at once which obviously they can't be. I mean, given the often people talk about China's dependence on coal. They might not realize just how big some of these farms are. No, that's true. Especially on the Tibetan plateau where this active t has focused. I mean, one of the biggest has four million solar panels and in the ching Hai province, and they have actually set a world record what they provided for the whole region. One hundred percent clean energy for full nine days, which is really quite remarkable. What is the things I've often heard about solar power as the sun shines in one place in the people need it elsewhere? Is that part of the story here in China? Yeah. I mean, that's especially a problem for China because the Chinese population is really unevenly distributed across the country. So ninety four percent of people live in the. East of the country and only six percent live in the west. But unfortunately a lot at the best places to produce electricity by solar power. Are in the west, such as I'm kind of in the desert and also on the Tabet and plateau. So very long cables connecting everything, right? And that's a serious issue because so much energy is lost over that huge transmission distance. So engineers talk about the capacity factor, which is the percentage of energy that is actually used compared to that, which is actually produced the original source and for China with its solar power. That's about fifteen percent. So you're losing eighty five percent energy in transmission. SAM's lock surely can be fixed, you'd hope. So. I mean, so they are planning to build these so-called electrical superhighways, which I'm not entirely sure happy technology works, but it's meant to be a lot more efficient for this kind of long distance transmission. But the plans for that, although there on business, they are actually preceding a lot more slowly than people had hoped what happens to them when they're finished with. They can't last forever. I said, this was a factor really didn't know. Forehand, but I'm solar panels only have a lifetime of about thirty years and they do contain some quite nasty chemicals intially such as sulfuric acid that needs to be removed in an ecologically friendly way unless a huge problem for when these solo foams do become redundant, hopefully thirty years earlier, founder solution to that.
