"A once in a lifetime moment in history as Queen Elizabeth II is laid to rest, his state funeral was watched by billions worldwide overnight. The Archbishop of Canterbury says few leaders have had the outpouring of love that we've seen for the queen. Her service to so many people in this nation the Commonwealth and the world had its foundation in her following Christ. Since then, the committal service took place and around 6 30 this morning a private burial ceremony for just senior royal family members will begin. But for our p.m., it's often New York, she arrives there this afternoon, her focus will be on the UN General Assembly, as well as the Christchurch call summit, but she's also planning on doing a lot of promoting of New Zealand. In engage in a number of events to try and make sure that everyone knows New Zealand is open for business. Meanwhile, Sam up and has been given the all clear to return to national's caucus, but some are having a go at national over the timing of the announcement revealing it on the same day as the funeral. They was grant Robertson said it was disrespectful and cynical. I've been around here for quite a long time. I've seen people decide to put things out on particular days, but they were certainly other ways of handling it that wouldn't have put it out on today. And backlash from kiwi fans over Ed Sheeran canceling the first of his 2023 New Zealand concerts. The first show in Wellington's been scrapped, and fans are puzzled as the reason behind this and why it was rescheduled, but the Turing companies playing coy saying it as simply due to ongoing uncertainties. First with you first with views, it's early edition with Kate hawksbee and 2° fighting for fear for kiwi business, used talks at B so you may have been listening to that clip of grant Robertson and you may have heard him say the same thing on the news last night. You may have seen yourself. Um. Grant Robertson, calling it disrespectful and cynical to drop a big announcement on the day of the funeral. Eckley to David Seymour has come out with a very good point and called this admonishing of the national party by grant Robertson, the H bomb of hypocrisy. He points out last week labored at the exact same thing, but on a far larger scale, they dropped all COVID policies on the day her majesty passed away. Two years of policy disposed of, at a time when the country was supposed to be in mourning. If we go back a month, he says how about announcing Trevor mellor's cushy diplomatic posting to Ireland. 15 minutes before the 6 o'clock news, trying to bury it or what? Earlier this year, he points out, dumping announcements concerning major constitutional reform like three waters and her purpura on Friday afternoons. Cast our minds back to the 1 o'clock updates from the podium of trophy points out in the time the government didn't announce that someone had escaped from him IQ. Until after the prime minister had given her update so she was safely away from being questioned by the media on it. And he points out that labor claims to be the most open honest transparent government ever. And he says they're actually so transparent now. We can see right through them. He says if Brant Robertson thinks national and disrespectful and cynical, I'd hate to know what he thinks. Of his own government. Not bad points. I think you've got to be beyond he who was without certain cast the first not to get too biblical. On you, but seriously, people in glass houses. I think the saying goes. So yes, the funeral hundreds of thousands gathering on the streets of London, of course, many more than all around the place in public places and packs. And pubs and watching it all unfold. It's 3 o'clock our time 3 o'clock in the morning was the committal service in around 6 30, this morning they're going to have the private burial ceremony. That's just for senior royal family members. Quite beautiful the crowds throwing roses as the queen's coffin was driven from Landon to Windsor, but somebody who was there in prison at Westminster and watching this all unfold in person was dame Carey to kanawha. And so we're going to get to her before sex and also get back to London on how the play slowly puts itself back together, I guess, for some kind of normality after this long period of mourning, as of tomorrow.

That's not something that you could advocate. Could you? Because that would be slightly illegal, but it would work. You know, that's right. You're just looking at behavior modification. And it is particularly in these small towns with state highways that are run through it. You can sort of almost not even notice that you've even changed speed zones. And so yes, look, you would hope that the sort of move to reduce speeds wasn't just in wakako tahi decision making, but actually outside these schools as well.

All right, look, after 6 o'clock I'm talking to rob Campbell, a man who has like a million jobs. He's the chief of health museum. He's the chairman of the board. He's also on a company called New Zealand, rural land management. Now they manage what they do is they buy rural land and then they lease it to farming operators and so they need some money, don't they? They need some capital. They've had a good year. But they find that local people are just not investing in their product. And they are now on the hunt for overseas investors. Now, this is not necessarily good, yes, it may be a New Zealand company. It's buying the land and then leasing it to New Zealanders, but if the money is coming from overseas, is that a good thing? Why are New Zealanders not prepared to invest in their own rural land? Rob Campbell will tell us more about that very shortly. And meanwhile I'm getting ticks after text after text saying tell Jane Rogers from the school that most people hate open play and officers and most people would die for an office.

"Back to the company and being with us on the next half hour grant Robertson's politicians need more security things are getting a bit rough out there. I'd call that the lowering of the bar generally, I think, in society, which is probably the direct result of a soft on crime government, but the deputy p.m. reckons its personal, someone tried to throw a lamington at him and fang a ride. So it does security for MPs need to be stepped up in general, or is this just a grant problem? We're going to look at the shortly. We'll get to Australia two Queensland's looking into DNA samples used for major crime convictions some of them they concerned may not be accurate. Thank you very much for your feedback this morning regarding the private plane flying. Kate, remember the misery is meant for us not them. Kate these are all the same hypocrites of the highest degree in re grant and has walkabouts in a security consent. Kate has grant for real, or is he just looking for excuses to not face the public? The p.m. started this trained with her failure to appear on the Mike asking breakfast. It's had to be open and transparent if you never turn up. I think you've hit the nail on the head there. That's exactly what they're doing. They're laying the groundwork to not have to be on walkabouts to be in public to be seen on camera, getting booed, or God forbid, having someone attempt to throw a lemming to net you. I think that's probably what it's more about. They're freaking out at how unpopular they become. I saw Robertson out for breakfast last week around brita mat he had two agents watching over him by said on their phones looking bored. I could have easily taken him out if I had the inclination, but I don't. Maybe grant should consider the plight of those, and this is the best point of all and I completely agree. They should consider the plight of those who work in jewelry stores they don't have the luxury of the DPS, when machites and baton wielding youths destroy their lives. Maybe he should do something about that. I couldn't agree more. Why being on about protecting yourself on a walkabout? When there were ram raiders and deities and jewelry smash and grabs and people getting all sorts of far worse experiences than you are with someone yelling out grant. Someone called him a potato apparently. And other revolting things he said. Kate, I wish someone would throw a lamington at me. I love them. I quite like a leamington, too. And this was a raspberry lemmington as well. Quite nice. You don't usually see the pink ones too. These politicians just don't like being unliked Kate. They've got to grab it comes with the territory. Kate, I'm so disgusted with this government all speed to protect them from leamington's, but they are delusional if they think people want to see them on a walk about anyway. And read the gut health interview that we did earlier. Okay, fascinating interview, very interesting. I didn't get the name. Could you please let me know. Just look at pendulum health. There'll be a website there, his name's John ead, and that'll have all the info. That you need. Kate our p.m. hitched a ride on a private jet so what? Give it a rest. Well, I would give it a rest. If she didn't bang on so much about saving the planet at the same time. Thank you for your feedback 9 two 9 two 6. Pork speed. Right, you'll place the Sweden's day starting in dunedin with Kellen proctor and all bus fears Keller across dunedin and Queenstown are gonna be free on Thursday.

But also they say to acknowledge the delays that passengers have had with the recent reduced timetables brought on by nationwide drivers shortages and COVID-19. Passengers, tomorrow, then won't have to tag on and off with their B cards and the machines on the buses will be deactivated for the day. What a throw in what you're doing today.

This is after a group of masked offenders. We think could be 8, rushed the Stuart Dawson's jewelry store. This happened about 5 p.m. yesterday. So footage from the scene shows that these are sailing. They were using batons to smash the cabinets in before running off waving their weapons at bystanders. A worker from a nearby shop says at the banks, they sounded like gunshots. People were just, they didn't know what to do, so they were burying themselves in stores and racing for the exit. So police, they have found a stolen car suspected to be the getaway vehicle, but the utility charges. Okay, what's Auckland's weather doing? We've got showers, Sanders storms possible this morning our high 19°. Karate, thank you. Kate grant thought it was hilarious though when a dildo was shown at a national MP, I think there's been a lot worse throwing than a leamington to be fair. We're going to look at whether they need more security shortly. But we'll get across the tasman home. They say it's where the heart is. They also say it's wherever you make it.

So there's sometimes individual in very specific planning roles that relate not just to the council but to individual streets and areas and how the zoning has done. If you read through the MB advice on schedule one of the particularly as it relates to this, so this is the increase in stand-alone buildings that have no plumbing and drainage in them that the previous guidance was you could build up to 10 m² without a consent that's been expanded to 30 m² without a consent. And the general rule is that whatever the height of the structure that you're doing and that's limited in the schedule one description, it has to be that far from the boundary. In reality, I don't think that anybody who wants to put up one of these structures wants to put comply with that part of the rule. In which case my prediction is that probably, I don't know, 90% of the buildings that are going to be put up under this legislation are going to be and breach of that guideline. Would be a rough estimate, maybe I'll be generous and say it's 80%, but I most people. Either don't know, or won't comply with it. Tell Neil to put a shed sleep out on wheels then park it on the concrete pad. Yeah. Right, Joan, good morning. Yes, hello. I'm just ringing up to find out. Sorry, I'm a little bit nervous. You're okay. Don't worry. I think you. My daughter bought a house in India partner bought a house in Christchurch. And she was really conscious of the foundations. So she got a building inspector to come in and do all the inspection and she was sent in lots of texts. So like you said, it's all in code. Blah, blah, blah. The house said, actually, previously, been in eze's house and in a guy came in and repeated it and then she boarded off of him. I think he was renting it for about 5 years. So the building inspector came and did all the everything. And she really stressed how nervous she was about having an issue she wanted the foundations to be perfect. So it's fine go ahead by the house. So she bought the house or they bought the house. And it wasn't until she moved in that she sort of felt like the front bedroom was the furniture and everything that it was sort of on a wee bit of a lane. So she got her friend a friend of a friend was an engineer and he popped over and did some measurements and said it's out of the code. And so basically really all I just want to know is what sort of redress does she have with the building and Specter can she climb something? Or what does she do from it? Yeah, really good question. It ultimately it'll become a civil matter, right? So she will need to find a lawyer and then take action, I think, against the building inspector. And I think what you could do is there is actually a New Zealand standard for house for pre purchase house inspections, right? Off the top of my head, I don't know what it is, but it'll be in Z S, so there is a description in law of the minimum performance standards for pre purchase inspections and for House inspections. So one, it would be interesting to know whether or not the person who undertook the pre pitch inspection even knows that there's a set of standards that they have to comply with, then to ask them what qualifications they have to do pre purchase inspections because right now the reality is anyone can offer up their services to do pre purchase inspections. And like your daughter, I've seen pre purchase inspections that have been done with a person as obviously incompetent and there is just no other word for it. So they have in a sense made a representation to your daughter they have offered professional advice and they need to be responsible for it. So if they've got insurance, they do. They have insurance. Okay, then I franchise, I think. Okay. All right. Then I think I would probably go straight to a lawyer, explain the circumstances of it. Go to someone obviously who's a specialist in building and construction law in contract law. And then I would say that that person then needs to, that the lawyer would then approach the pre pitch inspection, person to say, hey, look, your work has not been up to the standard. And seek redress. But what sort of redress would you be looking at? Like, what's going to be the outcome? Yeah, well, it depends like after she has the engineer go through the house and if he says write it out by this match and it's going to cost too much. Yeah, it's not her fault she absolutely. She relied on the advice of the person and she's paid for a report and then they've made claims in

It suddenly take a stand on time I think it was just, I don't know. There's been a lot of strong words. I think it was a kind of a ludicrous moment to take a stand on what is essentially a minor thing. I'm trying with Vodafone possessed fact Monday at four, only on youth talks at B. Asking your Aussie mate for help with that DIY job. Bye. 8 will give you a hand on O 880 ten 80. The resident builder, Peter Wolfe, with Mitsubishi, heavy industries, built on history, and experience. News talks it be. Someone sticks me through to ask if I can resolve a family argument. We will get round to that. Someone else's 6 through peak developers interested in their house. It may just get knocked down. Yeah, that's a good point. I know that's a fairly sort of brutal way of approaching it, but you're right. If Cheryl's house is potentially going to get sold to a developer, developer don't care. If the showers got compliance or whatever. It might get rented for a couple of months while I do the consenting. But then they're just going to drive a bulldozer through it. I don't mean to be harsh, but that's the reality for most large cities. And good old Christchurch, hey, decide to put their hand up and go, we're actually not a city anymore. That's the way of getting around the urban intensification legislation that the government have introduced. In partnership with national, it is the stupidest piece of legislation along with a whole lot of other stupid pieces of legislation in my humble opinion. But I love Christchurch has put their head up and going, you know, not a city anymore. We're not a tier one city, because it only appears to appear. It only applies to tier one cities. So let's put the hit up and go. That's not us. We're not tier one city anymore. Classic. Try secret good morning. Hi. Hi. Thanks for letting me. Colonial style health. Yes. And a modern build on sort of like a Z that says two corridors joined by a main lounge in the kitchen. Yes. Now there's another large joint to the mainland in this a huge double bedroom that's not facing. And so we've got glass from maybe two foot from the floor up to the ceiling and the bedroom from the entire for the entire wall. And we've got French doors in the land. We've got French doors and windows all through the house or the old section. So we've got a lot of glass. I'm thinking of getting it all double glazed or triple guys because being both facing the speed room and the whole door and officially on particularly. Yes. Just stream through and it's like an oven. There's no way that we could pull it down. So I'm thinking of getting a double glaze. What would be the problem we're getting something depth size double glaze that would be easier and cheaper to get in maybe I don't know that's three air conditioning units or something like that through the house. I guess if you go for the air conditioning option, you're not actually solving the problem. You're just dealing with the effects of the problem and you're going to be paying for that forever. Whereas getting solar panels in the roof as well. But then investing 15, $16,000 or more in a solar panel system. And I like solar. But you're still not solving the problem. So if the problem is in a nutshell solar again, then addressing that by using like a low E double glazing. That will reduce the heat gain, the solar gain in there, that will help cool that room down or keep it cooler by reflecting the heat during the summer months. So that's a straightforward solution that will help address issues around ventilation. I guess the other way is to look at maybe some sort of shading or screening on the exterior of the building. I think what's happened just as a quick aside. In the 1980s, sort of when I started building, we all suddenly went crikey. What we want to do is face north, right? Prior to that, if you hit the road running in a one direction, you built the front of the house facing the road and that's how houses were, right? And it was a lottery as to where the living room ended up and all the rest of it. Then we all went, what we want is we want north facing living. And so we all changed our building, big windows facing north, and they were all sitting in them going, shape as it's hot. So get lovely views. I mean, I get all of that, but then you're also getting the unintended consequence, which is overheating. So yes, low E glass. Low E double glazing will make a significant difference. It'll also help with retaining heat a little bit in the quite a lot in the winter as well. It'll give you some acoustic performance. That's not the main focus of it. It's all about the solar gain. So, and then that's a one off cost that you get the benefit from all the time. It's essentially once you paid for it. It's the benefit is free after that. So I would probably heat down that path. Yeah, so I was going to go for I was going to think about getting to something like that. But I think I'll invest the money into double glazing or triple glazing even. We don't have a noise problem because we're rural. But it's just the hate. Because the origin of the problem, there's a simple solution, and then there's benefit forever. And your other approaches, I know what the origin of the problem is, I'm not going to solve it, but I'm going to take care of the effects of it rather than the actual problem. So I would focus on fixing the problem. Brilliant. Brilliant. And one other thing to go. So there's a lot of cowboy builders out there. If you are interested in a job down the road, leave you if I can leave you different. Sure. Yeah, absolutely. We're about to tell you, Tracy? We're about to tell you. Sorry, we're.

"You and that's a Bloomberg business flash Tom and Paul Thanks so much greatly appreciate that Karen right now again evicts 4.47 big figure points out 33.3 to Cameron Christchurch now Bloomberg macro strategist Cameron do you see catharsis in the market Do you see sort of a wash out To a degree I think you can probably argue that this sort of thing should have happened last year Given the inflation backdrop but the market sort of blithely ignored the price pressures and were sort of if you will telescoping 6 months worth of volatility into the span of three or four weeks All right so Cameron I got the S&P approaching a 10% decline from its size to look to the futures here NASDAQ close to 15% As you mentioned this is something that people have been talking about for really the last 6 to 9 months in the marketplace Is this just a reflection of boy We're going to be in a rising interest rate environment We're going to have slowing economic growth Is this just it feels fundamental to me Is a fundamental T was a technical to you Probably a little bit of both I mean starting points matter and the starting point was a and extraordinarily accommodative monetary policy at a time where inflation is at sort of multi generational highs And at the same time valuation of risky assets equities crypto whatever you want to call them Has also been extraordinarily high So on those two things are obviously obviously related So it's kind of inevitable that policy normalizes From historically easy settings to something that's probably still easy but less historically easy And when you're starting point is sort of asset valuations on the moon there's just not much room or margin margin of air The way I like to phrase it is that everyone who climbs Everest is a hero right But really the real challenge about climbing Everest is not getting to the summit It's getting down alive And that's the challenge that investors are having to contemplate now That's how I feel after 8 a.m. every day here Cameron people talk with their money Do you have any flow analysis in this deep into 2022 market that we're having I mean probably nothing that would excite the average retail investor What I will say is we have seen quite a bit of money over the last month be deployed into bedding on more fed hikes over the next year to 18 months And we're now obviously pricing and for 2022 more tightening the fed itself is projecting So if you are looking for some sort of ray of sunlight in this dark January it could come on Wednesday if Jerome Powell basically backed down this idea that circulating with the fed is going to do four hikes this year with potential upside If he kind of holds the course of three and says well the market might be getting a little ahead of itself That could provide a temporary respite Although I would suggest that the ultimate criterion for determine the impact of rates on the market is probably on the terminal price What are we going to price for the fed at the end of the cycle And there we're obviously still well below what the fed itself is projecting So while it could just represent a shift in the shape of the fed pricing curve in the near term fewer rate hikes over the next 12 months could be at least some sort of catalyst for a little bit of short covering for the equity market Cameron just before you came on the air here we have Tom's favorite part of the show which is our sponsored crypto update But we've got Bitcoin down 50% Does that mean anything to you No I mean do you know what the change in Bitcoin is year on year I do not It's about zero Okay About 3% I think If you dance with the devil you can't be a surprise smelling of sulfur I'm glad you bring up the devil Thank you so much Cameron Christ here This morning

"There's something else going on here and I'm really troubled by I'm troubled by it for your generation for the generations to come. And I think I think that what's going on here that's different is that our identities are shifting. Our loyalties are shifting. So you said, it's used to be that we could just come to church and say, hey, these are my people. But that's not what people are saying anymore. And this is happening at the American level. People are no longer coming and saying, hey, we are all Americans. These are my people. And we might have some differences at a level up from that. But fundamentally at the base, we are all Americans, or within our church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints, we are all members of Christ church. These are my people. And yes, we might differ in terms of where we like to shop or who we vote for or things like that. But there's that fundamental commonality that identity, that core. And it seems like some of the works that I've been reading are around class shift and other things that's going on right now in the world, not just in America. It seems like people's identities are shifting away from those foundational large base communities and it's becoming more tribal. It's saying, no, I am first a political partisan, and then I am an American. I am first a political partisan, and then I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints. Now, of course, that would offend a lot of people. If I were to say, I think you've relegated your identity as a member of Christchurch to second class to your identity with a certain political party, they may not be able to see it articulate it, but the sociologist are starting to see that and to articulate it. So that's an interesting concept. And I think it goes back to another point that came to mind as often times and this is like the what makes leadership so different is that everybody is showing up with different with giving priority to different values. For example, there may be those individuals who think I can engage in this ward because they do not value safety as high as I value safety. So therefore, I'm going to stay home and shake my head at the bishop. Like, why aren't you forcing these people? Mandating these people to wear a mask to act like this to so that your prioritizing safety where that bishop is bringing the value of community, oftentimes saying we need, I know there's a pandemic. We want to keep people safe. But it's Paramount that we give a place for people to come and engage, right? So safety and community, there's not one of these is not the devil's advocate here. Like these are good values, but they're just ranked differently. And so you see this in different contexts where maybe a bishop has a certain goal of baptisms and award. And so he's bringing this vision to the ward of saying, in this ward, we're going to value missionary work, right?.

It is the kind of place where you might come upon a wizard you know like. You're you're like rolling green hills and you're like ancient landscapes and keys like a nightmare went out and found those kiwi birds and stuff like i mean they should own it. They should just kind of go with the wizard. They film all those. Like elvin movies there. The lord jackson like all peter jackson. Qe and like he. He built like the all the sets were on his land like he owns like this land. I think where they made all the lord of the rings movies. There's a lot of wizardry. I was taking place on the shores. I wondered if they were tied together. This wizard and the those movies but it sounds like he just came out of some sort of counterculture revolution the sixties in australia. So they yeah. I mean i look. There was like weird stuff. Gone in the sixties here in australia new zealand. Golly knows There is a huge tourism like lord of the rings kind of tourism boom targeted Y when i was there. I was at this dinner with peter jackson. He's talking like that you could. I think you could go and see like where the you know. Some movies were and but pilgrimages were made I mean these were like i like those moves by some once in cable and your watch twenty minutes like deeply important some people. Oh yeah So i i'd say own it to stick with the wizard thing maybe make another lord of the rings movie. Maybe need in the trilogy to bring it back you know. Yeah or just. Switch them into the harry potter mode you know making make them the new Muggle hating that guy. I would say harry potter world once with hannah. My wife And in two friends and took like hours to get there on the lines. Were just ungodly awful. There's one cool ride. We went on it. Everyone by me got super seasick from all the motion and then we had to leave and then we then. We forgot parker. It was a nightmare. Yeah i mean it's funny that you like you can like people can Be condescending about this right when you'd see the people at like the harry potter movie openings. In they're like wearing like you know hats and face paint. I read all his books. Great here's the thing about it like if you think of the more commonly accepted forms of behavior. What's we're right. We're going to like a movie dressed like a character in the movie or like what you and i did in college going to a parking lot like shotgun. Seventeen years vomiting on yourself and then watching a college football game. I mean hey man like its own again. Different people can do whatever the fuck they want totally. This guy wants to be wizard. Like why not. I thought you were gonna say what's weirder Going to carry potter world and dressing up like a wizard or like going to an obama or trump rally and get five hours early and standing in the freezing cold here political speech kinda crazy. What's crazier is like. You know because. I know you've had to do this. I did it once the political something awful. That's never felt worse about myself.

People encourage them to keep putting pressure on the leader But yeah it'd be very in the trump years. It wasn't really an option. Yeah obama's show up right but this one it's like it's also like it's an all hands on deck thing right every should go with like a platform on this kind of stuff Should go and i think it's you know. This is the first kind of summit like this bomb. Gandhi since us president and i think that's a sign that he feels a lot of pride and paris and this is obviously like the update to that but also like the. This is an issue. He's gonna be involved in going forward. Yes we all should be. He's got kids. We're all pretty nervous about this instrumental. Thanks joe manchin Hopefully they'll get something done. There's all these weird reports and it'll be like not what needs to get done but it'll be much better with more things and you just got to keep pushing keep fighting okay..

"Our country and learn about all the rising percentages of depression, suicide, sin, crime, volatility in society, towards people who think differently than you, it becomes very clear, very quickly what the world needs and his name is Jesus. But it begins and ends. Not only in the word of God, but it begins and ends with you. Every single one of us hear this morning have a role to play. Every single one of us in this building this morning are integral to the furtherance of the congregation here at Lincoln park, but more than that, the universal kingdom of God. We all have to do our parts. And it starts with stepping out in faith. By sharing the word of God and by living out your faith and doing some of the things that I set forth as an example here this morning. Brothers and sisters as disciples of Christ we must all take the living word of God out into the world because God has said, go. And share. And teach and preach. And so I leave you with this this morning. When's the last time you've went? And you shared and you taught, when's the last Bible study you've had? When's the last time you sat down with the family member or a friend and had a Bible study? I know that most of the time people are going to say no. But that's why living your life as a Christian is so very important. But when's the last time you made an offer, I know many people will say no, but when's the last offer you made? With a family member, a friend or a coworker. I'm not talking about going out and talking to strangers. People you know. Ask yourself that question. Along with the last time I had somebody in my home with the express purpose to build a stronger bond with those individuals. Because brethren, that's where it begins. We are the living representatives of Jesus Christ. And he needs us to go into the world. He's done his part. Now it's time for us to do our part. Are you willing to stand up, share your faith in lip sacrificially for the kingdom of God? If you're hearing this message this morning, brethren, there's a challenge that has been set forth. And I pray to God that each of us accept that challenge. Because our eternal destination hangs in the balance. We will all stand before Christ Jesus. It tells us, and second Corinthians chapter 5 verse ten. And it says we will give an account of our lives. What do you want that account to read? You get to decide what Jesus sees.

Donald trump president elect joe biden faces a daunting oval office in trae won joint first of all by christchurch mcnichols news editor and by suzanne lynch washington dc correspondent with the irish times in this first part of the show. We'll look mostly at what president-elect joe biden wants to do and will do domestically but chris festival <hes> on that thought of succeeding donald trump. How much political capital does joe biden inherit just by virtue of not being donald trump. Well to be honest in some ways. That is a question that will be. I think more important end to discuss in the second half of our show. We look at foreign policy. Because i think that is where there is arguably a lot more political capital. You know joe biden will enter office of this month to lead a country that is still extraordinarily divided. It has to be said that whatever <hes>. Court decisions were taken efforts to reverse. This election rejected by courts and by many academics. Who saw you know and others observers. Who saw no real evidence of fraud. It is important to point out. I think that potentially a majority of republicans are going to come into this year. Voters believing. Joe biden is illegitimate that that is not correct. That is not that is not what happened. But it is nevertheless a danger for democracy. And it's something that really i think is important to watch. Joe biden essentially has a tremendous amount of goodwill from half of the country who expects him to reverse many of the policies that donald trump implemented over the last four years and he will do a number of those from day one but we should not forget the other half of the country that will be causing a huge stink about all of this and it will be very interesting to watch how he tries to bridge those gaps particularly when it is such a strong divide as i say even in the sense of many just simply not even seeing him as their president suzanne to bring you in that division that chris delineates the is going to make extremely complicated one question. Joe biden will have to grapple with which is what does he do about donald trump. Does he as best he can. Just ignore him and hope he goes away or does he turn various congressional committees and the department of justice loose to try and get to the bottom wherever it may be of whatever. Wrongdoing was done. I don't think joe biden instinct will be to do that. I mean joe biden has presented himself very much as the kind of the nation's healer. He's talked about his own track record when he was in the senate for so many years of working across the aisle with republicans and working productively republicans. Now some might say that. Joe biden is suffering from naive radio. That washington has changed. That things have become much more polarized on they have in the last decade or so so he for example has has quietly hinted at his relationship with mitch. Mcconnell mitch. mcconnell is more more than likely going to be leading. i'm the two men have worked together. Particularly joe biden was vice president and mitch mcconnell in the senate and but even still you know. We saw mitch mcconnell reluctance to add call. Joe biden president-elect even though he had had won the election so that is a major at challenge for at for joe biden is going to be handling congress also. The problem facing him is democrats did very badly in november's election in terms of their seats. Both the senate and the house so not to pelosi now coming into a new year coming into a new congress with a much reduced majority and that is going to make things tricky for her. She's going to be tried keeper own party in check and i think a lot of the more left wing elements of the democratic party. Who basically were prepared to put away their differences with the establishment democratic party. If you like to try and defeat. Donald trump i now all gloves off and i think we're going to see this element of the party. The bernie sanders winged. Aoc wing. you know. Really kind of be vocal about what they believe. This joe biden presidency should deliver so i think you know that whole political reality of how washington is going to work with the mats in the house and the senate is going to be a constant challenge for joe biden other tries to govern. We'll chris let's look at the most pressing issues that will face president joe biden which is of course the covid nineteen pandemic now. Obviously there are grounds for optimism. Which is that a vaccine exists but it is going to take a while to get it to everybody. We are still months away from normality returning to the united states. Between now and then is there anything. The president biden will actually realistically be able to do to make an obviously already dreadful situation slightly less dreadful. Well i think he is going to try his damnedest to do that. <hes> he has set this or that that we all know now of <hes>. Essentially a one hundred million doses of the vaccine in his first one hundred days disseminated to the public <hes>. That's an ambitious goal. Although at the same time it it should be said that this was <hes>. A goal if you will of the trump administration as well <hes>. And this was. This was something that was planned. They had essentially bought one hundred million doses for the first quarter <hes>. But the biggest challenge that we are going to see this <hes>. In these first one hundred days is really going to be how that is disseminated. How is it gotten through to hospitals. <hes> you know and how states and local authorities cooperate with the federal government <hes> in order for that dissemination to take place how the army is potentially involved. It is a herculean task to get all of these vaccines out as quickly as joe biden has promised and i think it's going to be interesting because on the one hand you know he is as we you know he's he's still not president until january twentieth much of the work on this has been done by the trump administration <hes>. At the same time there is you know there is this risk if you will or you could also put it in a positive way. There's an opportunity in that joe biden. I think will very quickly find that. This becomes his pandemic to deal with. And that he will be reckoned with in terms of how he is able to get certain programs underway. That means that his people his entire operation is really going to have to hit the ground running incredibly quickly when they take over in particular because they also have not gotten that much help that much cooperation from the trump administration in the transition. Suzanne joe biden has of course being in the white house during one previous dramatic intervention in the united states economy. When he and barrack obama arrived in the wake of the two thousand eight collapse will he be tempted towards something similar in the current circumstances or preceding more on the assumption that wants the vaccine is taking effect. The us economy will more or less sort itself out. Well it's it's a very good point. Under i mean i think there are lots of parallels here actually to what obama faced obama joe biden back into into a nine and you know even between the election on the inauguration i mean america. I'm particularly america then. The wider world was embroidered the biggest financial crisis in decades. And they have to deal with that. So yes there are a lot of parallels i think joe biden has a proven record on this and they were able to pass the tariff act. They did the the bailout fund for the auto industry hugely complex pieces of legislation. Where a lot of money involved. And that may well be the case. Again i mean the. Us economy at the figures december have been worrying. There has been worst. Jobless figures than had been expected am the signs of recovery. We saw in the late summer. You know really didn't continue as we kind of got into that second. Wave around thanksgiving time so i think the economic consequences. This you know are really not getting. Maybe enough attention here. Obviously so at the figures are overwhelming in terms of the deaths the infection rates and but there's also a huge impact on the economy. And i think we're going to see i. I believe around the world. It's it would probably accentuate this. You know the difference between the house and the have nots. If you like you know the poorer are are people who are have lost. Their jobs are in less secure. And yes we're seeing the stock market. Do very very well throw twenty twenty and a lot of people. You know hoarding cash. Essentially as saving. So these kind of issues i think are going to be front and foremost for joe biden particularly. I mentioned already because of this very strong left wing within his party. They want joe biden. Who who has been pivoting. More to the left economically i think for example compared to say a hillary clinton at the time you know four years ago and i think he has suggested you know with his pick johnny yet and his treasury secretary. She talked about for example. The need to address structural issues economic inequality along racial and gender lines in the united states describing how they are important for the economy to address that. So you know what he's going to do in terms of getting more covert relief. Package is going to be a key element of this first one hundred days in parallel to the huge logistical challenge of getting those vaccinations out trying to encourage people to get vaccinated etc and again. This is all going to depend on his relationship with congress and these are going to be. It's going to be a lot of money involved in this and <hes>. Republicans in particular in the sandwich have been <hes>. At loggerheads with democrats out late twenty twenty about the size and scope of a of any rescue package for the american economy and you know commentators ironic air pointing out the national dash went way up under trump a now are we going to start hearing republicans complaining about the national debt. So i think that whole aspect as i say in parallel to the the health issue is going to be a key concern for biden in the first few months presidency. Chris susanne mentioned there a couple of members of president-elect biden's domestic team we should talk about obviously the highest profile member of that domestic team which vice president-elect kamala harris do. You anticipate that she'll be a more visible and obviously engaged vice president than usual because it's going to be a very different relationship. Between her and president biden vice president biden had with president barrack. Obama perhaps ironically as things have turned out biden. wasn't really seen as a natural apprentice. successor <hes>. To the much younger president he was he was running alongside whereas you already. Since there's a a feeling gathering kamla harris's president in waiting. Well i think <hes>. To continue the two thousand two thousand nine parallels in in some ways. This is a sort of the reverse of that. As as you're discussing. Because i think when joe biden came into office as vice president he sort of provided the experienced the heft to the to the obama administration as the time as the sort of political establishment candidate for you know a relative neophyte in barack obama at the time <hes> and so his role <hes>. You know he was. Obviously you also had before that dick. Cheney famously is maybe the vice president who really transformed the role but joe biden sort of ran with that and he was this <hes>. You know incredibly powerful <hes>. Very involved vice president as involved if not more involved than dick. Cheney was as vice president you know before that vice presidency often was seen as this very unimportant role and so i think in that sense perhaps looking now to kamala harris <hes>. In some ways there's a reverse there because she is not the one providing the heft if you will joe biden is now even more experienced than he was back then so he will be the the fully experienced leader if you will in this campaign <hes>. In this in this white house <hes>. And so the question will be in that sense. What kind of room. He is willing to give kamala harris. What exactly she is going to put her stamp on <hes>. In terms of us. And i think that's still a bit of an open debate. He obviously picked kamala harris because they have a good working relationship. She is somebody who was <hes>. Arguably more of a centrist than some of the other candidates that he could have picked. You know she's not from the bernie sanders wing of the party. I think that was important because in wanted to pick somebody not only who was historic in terms of being a woman. I african american as well in the vice presidency <hes>. But really somebody that he could have a good working relationship with in order to use her as both a trusted adviser and entrust her with leading on certain issues. So i think it will be very interesting to see how that relationship plays out and finally as you say as one point he obviously has not expressly said it but many would assume. There's a very good chance that joe biden will be a one term president and so in that sense. Yes this is. Come a harris's chance to really show that she is the one who will take up the mantle of being the leader of the democratic party of the future christchurch. Mac thank you for the moment.

Well that was prime, minister? I done this she celebrating her emphatic election victory last weekend. Now the significance of the Labor Party landslide. It's not just that it's seen as a reward for her decisive response to the COVID crisis. It means New Zealand now has its first single-party government in decades. So what does the mandate main for new? Zealand's economic landscape as it faces its worst recession in nearly a century. We'll deliver a progressive transformation across the ditch.

JC How do you account for Cinderella Dunes emphatic victory. Well, I mean you've got to say the popularity is genuine people lover. She's like a superstar she goes into to shopping malls and gets mobbed but I think you'd say you'd have to say to that that election campaign was incredibly disciplined Labor wanted a covid election. They wanted election that was about who stopped US getting sick not who's going to get us back to work and they succeeded in getting that they also wanted election that was focused not on labor, not particularly on policy, but almost entirely on just cinder. So if you the completely unscientific focus. Group in the Texas, you'd ask a taxi driver who you voting for, and let's say I'm voting for just under the all of a juicy. He reflects the Conventional Wisdom Abacha in Dorado and that her aggressive handling off covered and not to mention her response to the mass shooting of Muslims in in Christchurch earlier last year the gun control measures she put in place all that explains Justin, Dryden's remarkable political popularity. She's also received widespread global price for being a stateswoman who's kept New Zealand you nodded even in the face of multiple crises, your not fanned. Why? Well. First of all, I would agree with our choice just as remarkably popular and. This scenes from her election campaign were quite telling wherever she turned up. They were hundreds of people around her celebrating her. My experience with taxi drivers though is a bit different, maybe different taxi companies are us. Last The last few times I had known taxi drivers They complained that their businesses stoned at the city's undying out that we are not recovering properly from the crisis. That business is simply not what it used to be an typically detect Texas. Of course when I'm flying from Wellington to Auckland, and have to get to the CD and you can see the traffic in the city, the city looks kind of dead. We've got a massive challenge ahead on the economy in these eland, and that's why I haven't really seen much from the government in general plans of how to revive the economy and how to get us out of they have effectively beaten the virus now twice. But they haven't actually given us any clear indication how they're going to lift us out of this because the protections for public debts for unemployment. From monetary policy, they actually scare me when you look at them many New Zealand business figures share all of skepticism is fair Point Jersey. Yes, it is because the election really did focus on cousin who it was absolutely about who stopped US getting sick and so it was actually really hard to get any coherent debate about what is the plan B if we don't get a vaccine next year, what is the retail kind? So it was all very vague that staff and. You're right. All of you got different taxi companies to me to probably but another thing I heard in Texas a lot was all well if it's between wealth and health, I'm GonNa pick health and just send a picked health. Well, of course, you know we know that that's a false dichotomy it's not health or wealth. If you country is unable to trade and you borders closed long-term, then you're not going to raise the revenue to be able to have decent hospitals. You're not going to get your school buildings. Renovated and so on, and you're not going to be getting elective surgery and people are actually going to get unhealthy. So but it was no one wanted to hear that town that was the thing. No one wanted to hear a debate about next year they just wanted to know that. Anti Cinde was gonNA look after and that was it. Yes we'll enjoys does mentioned the vaccine just interested in like most western leaders frankly, she's pretty policy on the likelihood of a vaccine in coming months but the question here is what if a readily available vaccine if it ever happens what if it's a long way off I mean for how long all of our the present measures sustainable I mean, how long can you zeal and cut itself off from the outside world? Well I think that is actually a political question not an economic run from an economic perspective I. Think it would be desirable to New Zealand to the words more quickly but can do the safely. We can still have proper border to ensure that when we opened up to the word again, we do this without importing the virus. But I think the government sticks to the precautionary principle at the moment, and that's a political decision because the public doesn't want the government do anything outspent opinion polls before election showing that more than seventy percent of New Zealanders what actually like to keep the borders Morris close and these are people who probably don't have any immediate travel plans or maybe don't have any family abroad. Heavily business to do abroad, and so for them life is quite pleasant as long as they also keep their jobson New Zealand's, and so they would rather electric continue the status quo until that vaccine arrive. So it is difficult for the government to go against this when the public is. So strongly in favor of just keeping the border shut as they are but at some stage will just have to a because some the economic consequences of this some prolonged isolation are going to be enormous Jesse is point. Absolutely, you could not get a discussion out during the election campaign about elimination versus suppression of the virus, and so it was it was almost impossible to talk about the plan. B. If the vaccine doesn't turn up which let's face it, it's unlikely tuneup and be available next year so. Realistically the from left or the right of the political spectrum. It was really hard to talk about how long do our border stay closed, and those of us myself included who were trying to say, you know look closing the borders as a six month policy not a two year policy. He can't possibly maintain a closed border and keep trade going even though we can still export milk powder and so on. But the ability for our businesses to connect with the world and so on for us to travel is just not feasible but whenever I said that I would get attacked on twitter and everywhere for being the head of a capitalist difficult. So you could not get a good debate going about this even though the w eight show for example was saying, Hey, you know strict lockdowns and we've had very strict lockdowns for lockdowns are not the best approach if you're doing a cost benefit analysis on either health or economic growth.

Rise of the Moa
"To introduce today's episode. I thought maybe we should begin by reading a poem. Robert Are you game. I'm game for a little little poetry. In fact it's not just poetry. It's Moitri I did not make that joke in my head yet. But maybe because I'm not as perverse as you. This is by the New Zealand. Poet Allen Kerr now's was originally published in nineteen forty nine and it's called the skeleton of the Great Moa in Canterbury Museum Christchurch. The skeleton of the MOA on iron crutches broods over no great waste a private swamp was where this tree grew feathers once that hatches it's dusty clutch and guards them from the damp interesting failure to adapt on islands taller. But not more fallen than I. Who come bone to his bone. Peculiarly New Zealand's the eyes of children flicker round this tomb under the skylights wonder at the huge egg found in a thousand pieces piece together but with less patience than the bones that Doug in time deep shelter against the ocean weather not I some child. Born in a marvellous year will learn the trick of Standing Upright here. You can find that poem by the way. In the nineteen seventy-nine Anthology an anthology of Twentieth Century New Zealand poetry and I really loved the cadence of that poem and also Feel like it. Effectively captures the the weird beauty of these reassembled skeleton remains one sees of the mighty? Moa We just did Marianne Moore in the paper Nautilus. This is another poem like that. I love a good poem. That genuinely ponders biology Like this deals with the evolutionary adaptation of the MOA the flightless birds of New Zealand And the idea of learning the trick of Standing Upright. Yeah now this is going to be a fun. Couple of episodes. I'm really excited about these episodes I think the the Moa one of the things. That's really keeping me going right now to research. Read about the Moa Envision. The more no matter what we`re. I don't know where you are out there as you're listening to this where you are in your previous understanding of the. Moa and other flightless birds But this is a this is a wonderful and weird story that has a number a number of connections to things. We've talked about in the past but also some new angles. We're going to be talking about evolution. We're GONNA be talking about First contact between man and beast. It's it's GonNa be a fun ride and there's no better place to start a fun ride than in New Zealand. The land of avian decadence that's right and the place where where the Mammal is truly debase. That's right because you know. Obviously the rise of mammals is one of evolution's most celebrated victory stories right because in part because we are of course mammals ourselves. And there's perhaps a sense of of the gods and the primordial titans when we consider the age of the dinosaurs that came before us in our own. Mammalian Age That we have ascended in now. Well Yeah I mean. There's very much a case of When you look at the Cretaceous Paleocene extinction event that caused the demise of the non. Avian dinosaurs It's quite clear that their loss was our gain. Yes but it wasn't only our gain the gain of of birds and we often neglect the just the exceptional dominance of birds for this as they the the legacy of of the dinosaur and then they they remain highly successful in widespread to this day. They remain masters of the Air. Frequent masters water and sometimes masters of the land is well now. Why would birds be the masters of the land like they've got the air that seems so much better than the land? Why even bother with the land? Well of course the obvious answer there is that is that to be. A master of the of the air requires a great deal of energy. And if you don't have to fly around you quickly find reasons. Not Too narrowly speaking. Of course we'll so if we're talking about mammals and avian dinosaurs or birds. Why exactly was it that? The loss of the dinosaurs was the gain of these other glades. Well because suddenly you have all of these These these niches in the In in the in the environment that open up this suddenly a bird can can occupy various creatures. Have the ability to occupy mammals included. But this is where we see the emergence of a number of these different flightless birds. This is where we see the emergence of terror birds in the demon ducks. And we'll get into some more examples of flightless birds as we go but yet to be sure we still have some amazing flightless. Land Birds with us today and some of them are are quite enormous. The largest of course is the ostrich. There are two species remaining. There was a third the Asian ostrich that went extinct roughly six thousand years ago. Yeah the two extant species the common ostrich in the Somali ostrich and they're both native to Africa. Yeah and I. Sometimes I feel like we sometimes overlook. How cool ostriches are. I find that it zoos. They for one thing. It's zoo habitat in an and a fenced in area. But then sometimes the ostriches in there with a giraffe seems particularly unfair because the draft of course is the is the tallest extent mammal that we have and It feels kind of like a dirty trick to showcase the world's the world's tallest extent bird with the tallest mammal which towers over right. It's like I'm trying to show off my muscles but then you put me next to a gorilla. Yeah but but we have some other wonderful examples of flightless birds elsewhere for instance. We have emus which are very fascinating to get a chance to look at an email. Just watching e-mu as it goes about its business It's it's remarkable the cassowaries one of my favorites mind to there's a castleberry here at the Atlanta Zoo. Yes see soul the the cast where who we've talked to on the show before with with a friend Jason Ward here in down about Cecil the cassowaries who her member Jason telling us that it's dengue is very like fragrant smells of fruit. Even though it is I mean not to demonize animals but when you get up close to it it is horrifying beast like it's beautiful. It's colors are beautiful. It has the blue and the red and the black feathers. It's gorgeous animal but also if you look at its foot it's foot. Looks like a puppet from a monster movie it is. It is just a killing things. Got These clause in the scaly scabby skin That's a tongue twister. But you look at a castle up close some time if you just WanNa be terrified and audit nature indeed. Yeah they they can. They can prove quite deadly. If you you know the the human comes into close contact with them and their they'd be begin engaging defensive behavior. Oh Yeah don't try to look at their feet up close if there is not a barrier between you. Yeah of course. We have other Flightless bird to consider amazing ones. Of course it's the Kiwi of New Zealand the The Nocturnal Ground Bird. All of these birds are what we call rat. Tights diverse group of flightless birds that were widespread across the scattered fragments of the supercontinent Gondwana. In their Donald Dominance waned over time certainly with the the rise of Homo sapiens. We still have all these various examples that still remain today. And you find you find large flightless. Birds will actually large and small flightless birds everywhere from New Zealand to South America. Without even getting into the the the obvious example of just other flightless birds. There's also the pink win. Yeah of course But wh this raises the question. Why do we have flightless birds? All over the place like this well In the one thousand nine hundred ninety s there was a wonderfully titled Theory Moas Arc. Which would you assume that all of these rats descended from a common ancestor? So in other words the the idea here is that a a flighted ancestor became flightless on Gondwana and then as supercontinent split this one flightless ancestor diverged. Into all these different flightless species okay. So you get one instance of these birds descending from an ancestor and becoming flightless and then the flightless one goes all over the place. And then there's continental drift right to supercontinent splits up and the flightless descendants of that one ancestor all go off into different places and evolve in different directions and they become everything from the ostrich to the Kiwi to the MOA right but one of the the issues with this This idea is that this would mean we'd expect something we'd expect say in New Zealand. Expect the MOA in the Kiwi to be closely related to each other We'd expect that Any any of these rats that live close together would also be closely related but subsequent DNA studies have revealed that this was not the case instead of Moas Arc. The model seems to be one of numerous cases of flighted to flightless evolution around the world so again convergent evolution This repeated instance of a flighted bird evolving into a bird. That doesn't fly which seemed so strange of a of a choice for evolution to make. I mean not to personify it too much. But but what is the advantage there I think we alluded to this earlier. One of the main theories about this is that it's an energy advantage. If a bird doesn't need to fly than it doesn't need to make huge pectoral muscles flapping wings that can get it into the air and if it doesn't need to make those big muscles it can spend that energy on something else. Sorry can just survive on less
Jacinda Ardern reveals 'unprecedented' travel restrictions to combat coronavirus
"As the virus spreads globally the New Zealand prime minister Jacinda Ardern has announced that anyone entering the country from Sunday midnight we'll have to spend two weeks in self isolation new Zealand's a six confirmed cases of the virus but no deaths try Michael Leo is in track Christchurch anyone coming into New Zealand with the exception of those travelling from the Pacific islands will have to self isolate for fourteen days on arrival the prime minister Jacinda Ardern said the measures will come into effect from midnight Sunday she described the rules as the toughest and widest ranging border restrictions in the world the prime minister also urged New Zealanders to avoid nonessential travel overseas and reiterated advice of no hugs or handshakes all cruise ships have been asked not to come to New Zealand until June the thirtieth and national memorial service marking the first anniversary of the Christ Church shootings which was scheduled for Sunday has been canceled due to a coronavirus
"Eko fascism ever heard of it or thought about it seems paradoxical but is it or is it a part of American history that has been there all along in an article dated August seven twenty nineteen G. Q.. Magazine yes yes G. Q.. Defined Eko Fascism as quote a belief that the only way to deal with climate change is through eugenics and the brutal suppression of migrants and quote. It's a philosophy that has roots in the American environmental movement. Dating back to the eighteen hundreds rate right down to the creation of our national park system. But let's start off with the recent events that inspired me to produce this episode on August Third Twenty nine a shooter in El Paso Texas Killed Twenty people at a Walmart near the border with Mexico. Nineteen minutes before the first nine one one call a hate filled. Anti immigrant manifesto appeared online. That was strangely called an inconvenient truth in the document the author makes his horrific case for ethnic cleansing as a solution to the climate crisis. I ask myself could. The shooter's deadly words and actions have been inspired by the rhetoric that has been spoken tweeted by the forty fifth president of the United States who has verbally attacked communities of color on more than one occasion this time. It's House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah. Cummings he wrote wrote. This Cummings district is disgusting rat and rodent infested mess. If he spent more time in Baltimore maybe he could help clean up this very dangerous and filthy place. No human being would want to live there infested usually reserved for references to rodents and and insects. But we've seen the president invoke infestation to criticize lawmakers before you see a pattern here just two weeks ago president trump to protect four minority congresswoman. Why don't they go back to the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came reminder three of them were born here all of them are or American infested? He says a week before his inauguration January two thousand seventeen congressman. John Lewis should spend more time on fixing in helping his district which is in horrible shape and falling apart not to mention crime infested. Donald Trump has tweeted more than forty three thousand times James. He's insulted thousands of people many different types of people but when he tweets about infestation it's about black and Brown people September number two thousand fourteen at the height of an urgent health. Emergency why are we sending thousands of ill-trained soldiers into IMBOULA. If Ebola infested areas of Africa bring the plague to the. US Obama is so stupid infested. He says there's a revolution going on in California. So many sanctuary areas is one out of this ridiculous crime infested and breeding concept infested. He says the President says about congressman. Cummings district that no human would would wanNA live there. You know who did Mr President I did. From the day I was brought home from the hospital to the day left for college and a lot of people put care about still do their challenges. No doubt but people are proud of their commuted. One sound self-righteous but people get up and go to work there the care for their families there. They love their children. WHO pledge allegiance to the flag? Just like people. Oh who live in districts of Congressman. Who Support You sir? They are Americans too. We'll be right back. After after the El Paso tragedy. I started reading articles that referred to the term Eko fascism. There seemed to be more than one. Example of racially motivated terrorist wrist attacks in the news from Christchurch New Zealand to Pittsburgh Pennsylvania to California but none so directly connected to the climate crisis as the El Paso shooting which made me deeply concerned about the ways in which humans will react when the crisis worsens. Will it bring bring out the best in humanity or the worst. I began to think more deeply about the foundations of America. Correct me if I'm wrong but post colonial. The American history seems to be filled with examples of ECO fascist ideas and axe our very own declaration of independence refers to indigenous indigenous people of this continent as merciless Indian savages. And yet. This is still a document that we celebrate every year with a national holiday and the principles of manifest destiny. An eminent domain made way for a government led genocide children being separated from their parents put in detention centers and even killed by the American government. These practices are also not new from the slave trade to Indian residential schools. American history has already set precedence every single day that we wake up we are living out our lives on stolen land. This is our history. It's history that we shouldn't turn away from no matter how hard it is to look at it. I know this is a dark subject. But it's an important one one if we don't look directly at our shadows cells. How will we ever heal in a recent interview? In The Guardian activist writer. Naomi Klein referred referred to this concept as climate barbarism. because she connected the dots. So well I'm going to read her words here. She states quote white supremacy emerged. Not just because people felt like thinking of ideas that we're going to get a lot of people killed but because it was useful to protect barbaric but highly profitable actions. The age of scientific racism begins alongside the transatlantic slave trade. It is a rationale for that brutality. If we were going to respond to climate change by fortress seeing our borders then of course the theories that would justify that that create. These hierarchies orchids of humanity will come surging back. There have been signs of that for years but it is getting harder to deny because you have killers who are screaming it from the rooftops unquote and then Naomi speaks of the environmental movement quote when you have a movement that is overwhelmingly Wellm Ingley representative of the most privileged sector of society. Then the approach is going to be much more fearful of change because people who you have a lot to lose tend to be more fearful of change whereas people who have a lot to gain will tend to fight harder for it. I have had many many conversations with environmentalists over the years where they seem to believe that. By linking fighting climate change with fighting poverty or fighting racial justice. It's it's GonNa make the fight harder. We have to get out of this quote. Mike crisis is bigger than your crisis. I we save the planet and then we fight poverty and racism them and violence against women unquote. That doesn't work that alienates the people who would fight hardest for change unquote as middle middle class educated white women WHO considers herself an environmentalist for social justice. An ally in the struggle for racial equality and racial equity. I felt compelled up to bring the issues of Echo Fascism and environmental racism to the Isan Conservation. podcast I hope this episode shines light on our shadow selves an offers inspiration on how to move forward will start this episode with a close. The camps protest attended on August Thirty First Twenty nineteen scene in downtown San Francisco. I'm on my way down to the close the camps protest in downtown San Francisco right in front of the ICE building. This protest today is part of the month of momentum that has been a month long a series of events and protests and ways to get involved in the movement to close down the concentration camps that are are at the border of the United States and Mexico so every day when I turn on the news and I hear more stories about the conditions of the camps and the fact that children are in cages. Children are dying people are dying in the camps. I I'm I'm basically as heartbroken and petrified as I am about the climate crisis CICIS I see these both the climate craigslist and our humanitarian crisis. That's happening at the border right now. As one in the same basically the way that we're treating a world is the way that we treat ourselves and other people and eight and so I needed to do something and so I decided to come down and spend my Saturday morning here.

A look at the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan
"Greene. Muslims around the world began to observe the holy month of Ramadan. Last night. Every year worshippers Martha month with day-long fasting prayer and acts of charity this year. Ramadan comes less than two months after a gunman killed fifty one people into Musk's in Christchurch New Zealand and also after other attacks on houses of worship here in the US and elsewhere joining us in our studio is the writer and playwright a Lee, welcome. And I guess what what is the proper greeting for Ramadan. You could say room of Mubarak who gets on Kareem you could say happy with on. And he could also be like stay away from me because I can smell on breath. And ramadan. I just want to reflect a little bit. Because I you know, we spoke to you last. I think right after the attack in New Zealand, you were talking about the vulnerability that Muslims felt and also worshipers of all religions, so I mean is this Ramadan feel different? You know, it's the first time ever. This was last week where I've been born raised in this country thirty years old to wear a brief thought when my head and said, well, we'd be safe in our mosques during this. This was after the lettuce latest tragic shooting in the San Diego synagogue, six months after the tree of life synagogue in Pittsburgh and just like you said two months after the terrorist attack in New Zealand. And so the fact that that thought even creeps up in your head as an American citizen living in America for the first time in your life to shows, you the sobering reality of the times that we live in with the rampant rise of white nationalism and hate against religious minorities. Ethnic communities, and the fact that we can't feel safe in our houses of worship. But that being said, there's a resilience and hope in an optimum among these religious communities and most Muslims still feel optimistic about Ramadan. And the fact that you know, these terms like fudge, which is the morning prayer or Siri. What is the meal that we just ate like an hour and a half goes now trending next associ-, and Danny the mother of dragons in America.
