"You go up not if you. Hey all right. Let's ratchet down the judge about these things all right with the twitter's let's we blow this out of proportion deal kevin kevin's right. I'll take that back. I apologize christopher judge. This is not the roman and it could be any number of reasons But he said. This is the classiest thing that i've ever heard about in this business everyone involved in the uk. I'll take all that back. He's abbreviate god of war. To g of w g you only it's gotta be g. o. w. w it all over. It's taken over gears of war. We've all been there. We've put out a tweet menlo. This is hard and then everyone judges it. Everyone judges it research here chris. You're having a bad time. You're not helping us help us help you help us help you. Just g. o. W. everyone involved in the g. o. w. franchise put their hearts and souls into every frame. You see. I wanna thank everyone. That's allowed me to play I assume he meant to say players in character but yeah but yeah so now we know but because i think it was like play love re there was there was a four three two that i just couldn't handle anymore typo too. That's fine that's fine. That's understandable ten. This is i think this is great. And i think initially we all thought. Oh this'll get taken down pretty soon. Pr will kind of snap this up Just based on how kind of inside baseball it seemed and then seeing corey barlow replied to it like hey man we love you dude like. You're you're part of the team that we can do this to you and it'd be really i'm like okay that that's great. They're not gonna take that down but it also just sort of shows you how shitty the movie industry in the tv. She has been to him where something just like. Basic human decency is such a surprise to him that a studio. Qb be like man. Take your time like we. We need your at one hundred ten percent so yeah exactly and that was the reason i wanted to kind of bring up also because like you know the the industry is we're constantly talking about how rough the industry can be in various different forms that i think is nice to also highlight that they're all moments on places where good things happening obviously would like it to happen to different people on all scales old ladders and places within the development of the game. Not just the star of the game But it shows that you know humanity and showing some compassion for people genuinely helps people in create if places in the same way help. Christopher judge he goes on to tweet about how he almost quit the game when Corey told him that he wasn't directed. The next one accord it was just like. Hey do you trust me and Christopher joyce yep and. He's like this. I i second aladdin me exactly like i would like to be like at a little thing of like them delaying wild like the amount of money that must have cost so i don't think like a simple decency thing because they could've still used his voice and hired a different actor to be the body. That sort of thing happens all of the time. I don't disagree. Kevin but i do think with a game this large and a studio this large. You're kind of. I like to assume that seniors. This large are building into The money they're spending. Yeah expecting some sort of delays for like. Hey just cases and this happened just in case we were into this issue. We're kind of prepared for this Ahead of time. I just feel like with with a company. This large making one product. Every what six years right like that that. Is you like them accounting for that. That's i think really really impressive and like shot. I think the other thing is like they have a an interest in making sure that talent is super super invested in staying in that role of feeling. Good about it. Because you look at like. They'd probably learning a lot from seeing novel In the movies right like those are similar movies and franchises on entertainment properties. The are in many way built off the back of their lead characters right like you think about what the does to robert downey junior and the idea that if you treat an actor like robert downey junior paulie. He's more likely to balance out alignment early right. And in that scenario you screw up so many things. I think we live in a world. Now where create as behind these things all understanding that you need to treat your you'll stalls and the people that kind of make the things happen little bit more compassion so they feel good about carrying on doing this because if it turns out off to this god of war. This is the end of the no saga they want to do. Another god of war and they want christopher judge to return. This is the kind of thing that's going to make him. Go absolutely unpack one hundred thousand percent yet one thousand percent and then they save themselves a lot of time and mocking spend in the future having to pitch this new cray toss as as a new acta and all that kind of stuff they save money on and they saved the headache on that because christopher judge zoa like you record to me when i needed you hope so. Let's do this tam. When when tom cruise breaks his ankle on the set of mission. impossible fallout. You don't just rush and then say tom. You can't be in the next stunt scenes are we're going to have to sideline you. You delay the whole movie. Because the franchise is nothing without you.

The 'Great Dying' Nearly Erased Life On Earth. Scientists See Similarities To Today
"There was a time when life on earth was almost wiped out. The great dying was the biggest extinction ever, it happened two hundred and fifty million years ago and was largely caused by greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. As NPR's Christopher Joyce reports scientists are beginning to see alarming similarities between the great dying and what's happening to our atmosphere. Now you can learn about the great dying at the new deep time exhibit at the Smithsonian's national museum of natural history. I get a back door visit by a giant freight elevator. That's used to haul life size dinosaurs up to the new hall. Workers are assembling dioramas and video monitors. It's a few weeks before opening curator, Scott wing shows me, the exhibits, crown jewel, the museums. First real tyrannosaurus Rex what an enormous head. It's a pretty big body to the Toronto. Sora stands over a prone triceratops. It's jaws clamped on its head. But I guess while the, the truth is, it's really isn't a dinosaur hall. Yes. There are plenty of dinosaurs in it. We like to say come for the dinosaurs. Stay for everything else, the theme is factually, the interconnectedness of life through geologic time exhibits show, for example, how plants at the bottom of the food chain supported everything from insects to twenty ton of Pata services wing likes that he's a botanist. I'm a photo synthesis chauvinist. The whole ecosystem is based on photosynthesis, and because life from toadstools to tyrannosaurs is connected. When something big happens to the earth, the whole fabric can disintegrate and that happened due to global warming. It's explained in the exhibit, great dying section. This is it. This is the big one. The exhibit explains that an enormous volcanic field erupted in what is now Siberia, it spewed carbon dioxide in pollution into the atmosphere possibly for millions of years that warmer to the planet made the oceans, acidic and robbed them of oxygen. There have been other mass extinctions like the one that wiped out the dinosaurs. But this one at the end of the Permian period was about what happens when too much carbon dioxide rises into the atmosphere. Those are lessons that we can learn from studying the past, and they're also those processes that are being observed by scientists today. Earth. Scientists is like Curtis Deutsche of the university of Washington, whose research helped inform, the Smithsonian curator's the very same things that caused the great dying are happening right now in our ocean today as a result of human activities, not to the same degree but in the same direction, so Deutsche thought, why not recreate the hothouse of the great dying in a computer and see how present day life would fare, he could crank up the heat and lower the oxygen and watch as parts of the ocean started to become deadly. The first thing that happens is that you start to see a local loss of species as they begin to move in response to the climate heating up. But some parts of the planet were more forgiving. And we discovered something that was kind of surprising and new, I think, and that is that extinction was very strong everywhere, but it was even stronger near the cold parts of earth in the near the polar oceans. Than it was in the warmer, tropical oceans. It makes sense. He says animals that live near the equator can migrate toward the pulse to find cooler water. But those that are already live in cold oxygen rich waters near the polls have very little room to run. Deutsche says the experiment is a window on the future, even the present marine species are ready migrating, we see responses of marine species to those changes today that look like what we think happened at the end of the Permian, and that says the Smithsonian Scott wing is what visitors should take away from the new exhibit, or so powerful. We are basically a geological for us now, as well as a human force a force that changing the conditions for life on the

China factories releasing thousands of tonnes of illegal CFC gases, study finds
"An industrial chemical damaging the earth's. Ozone layer has been increasing in the atmosphere in Paris. Christopher Joyce tells us scientists believe it's coming from eastern China. The chemical is a coolant mostly used in refrigeration called CFC eleven. It destroys ozone in the atmosphere, creating ozone holes that let harmful amounts of solar radiation, strike the earth and international treaty required. Nations to phase out. These chemicals by twenty ten yet scientists have detected a spike in CFC's in the atmosphere over the past five years. Researchers working in Asia measured and tracked the CFC's in the atmosphere.

Greenland, Christopher Joyce And National Academy Of Sciences discussed on Morning Edition
"Londonderry new research on the massive ice sheet that covers much of Greenland shows eighties melting six times faster than it was forty years ago as NPR's Christopher Joyce reports that's contributing to rising sea levels, billions of tons of ice covered Greenland up until the nineteen seventies. The amount of ice was relatively stable. What melted and flowed into the ocean was offset by new ice formed on land every year? Now, scientists writing in the proceedings of the National Academy of sciences say that balance is off a lot more ice is melting than being newly deposited a study of two hundred sixty glaciers on Greenland shows that. While the rate of melting varies over short. Periods of time over the long term the rate is speeding up. The researchers point out that Greenland melt at ice as raised global sea levels by half an inch since nineteen seventy-two but half of that rise came in just the last
Dozens Of Nonnative Marine Species Have Invaded The Galapagos Islands
"Cornish. The Galapagos islands are like a biological arc in the eastern Pacific Ocean. There giant tortoises and swimming iguanas and numerous creatures found nowhere else is one of the world's most protected places. But scientists have discovered that dozens of exotic species have invaded the Galapagos underwater NPR's Christopher Joyce reports on this unexpected finding marine biologists James Carlton remembers when he first got to thinking that the Galapagos islands may not be as pristine as people thought on my first visit to the Galapagos collected some samples from both bottom barnacles sponges and other hitchhikers that was nineteen eighty-seven Carlton didn't know if those creatures he found were native or not so four years ago he and a team of scientists decided to return and take a closer. Look, we didn't know quite what to do. Expect what they did know was that on land. There were lots of invasive species species that are not native to the islands, but in the surrounding ocean. Scientists only knew of five invaders everything else presumably was native when Carlton's team looked underwater. However, they found a hoard of invaders and now we have fifty three which is a rather stunning increase marine biologist. Gregory Ruiz says they found exotic species on pilings docks and mangrove roots. They hung plastic plates underwater in all sorts of alien invertebrates latched onto them at the Smithsonian environmental research center in Maryland, where he works Ruiz shows me, the invasions lab, researchers here track invasive species around the world, this is a organism that we've found in the Galapagos tuna could also known as a sea squirt a tiny tube-like animal. He has more invaders in glass bowls filled with alcohol barnacle. Nls LG, CNN enemies. They're described in the journal aquatic invasions recess rising tourism in the Galapagos means more boats, docks, pilings, transportation and homes.

Teenage Diver Finds Tons Of Golf Balls Rotting Off California
"Carmel, California. She and her father were diving in the Pacific just offshore from a golf course. She looks down. And saw something weird. You couldn't see the fan. It was completely white golf balls. You looked down. And you're like, what are you doing here? Thousands of golf balls. It felt like a shot to the heart. She was offended. She decided she'd haul them up she put them in her family's garage. I had all these. My garage and they stunk and I had no idea why. Then she heard about a scientist who studied the plastic waste in the ocean. His name was Matt Sevaka from Stanford University. She emailed him. He came to look at her collection fifty thousand golf balls just sitting in the garage. He said, I should write a paper about this. And I was like man, I'm sixteen years old. I don't know how to read a scientific paper he said he'd help that meant diving with her not easy. The oceans off California, actually, quite cold. And so you suit up in a pretty thick wet suit. It's incredibly physically demanding they took kayaks out to ferry the golf balls back. We'll have the kayak so-so prostate that will end up just having the to- the kayak back, and we'll have to swim to shore while we were out there. We would hear plink plink. And then we look up on the hill. And there would be golf balls flying in off the course right into the ocean. Where we were doing some collections actually whenever we have good conditions were able to pull out between like five hundred. Two five thousand off ball over two years. They found more than fifty thousand golf balls. The source five golf courses. Three were up. The Carmel river, the golf balls just rolled underwater down to the ocean in the journal marine pollution bulletin, the team says chemicals from fifty thousand or so cough balls. We'll probably only have a small effect on the ocean. But they do degrade into micro plastic pieces that marine animals could eat Alex Weber says, if those golf balls floated people would be shocked, if a person could see what we see underwater, it would not be acceptable.

An Island Crusader Takes On The Big Brands Behind Plastic Waste
"A tide of plastic waste is contaminating the oceans. And in a congressional hearing Senator Sheldon Whitehouse named major culprits over fifty percent of the plastic waste in the oceans comes from just five countries, China, Indonesia, the Philippines, Vietnam and Sri Lanka NPR science. Correspondent Christopher Joyce. Went to one of those countries the Philippines to see how bad it is Manila it sprawls along the coast of Manila Bay. Shantytown sit in the shadow of new high rises and mega shopping malls, people here have more money than they used to. So they're buying more stuff from fancy soaps to important coffee in fast food, all which is wrapped in plastic packaging. A lot of that plastic ends up in the bay. There's an island in the bay that's kind of like a doormat for that floating. Plastic. I went to take a look it's not far from shore. We're on a Bunka, which is a Filipino vote. Wouldn't vote about twenty long creepy by. I could see lots of mangrove trees, the islands could be a place for a resort except that what looks like Spanish moss hanging from the branches. Isn't it's plastic bags. On the way out there. You look along the shore at just one all mine, plastic debris. To get a sure we walk on a little catwalk me, Dan Boone held together with plastic tie underneath it. It's. Classic perplex. Hello. The variety of stuff leading around is amazing shoes bottles, syringes, even motorcycle films. It's impossible to tell exactly where all this stuff comes from. The clearly a lot of it comes from the neighborhood surrounding Manila Bay. Some of those neighborhoods trying to stop the flow of plastic into the bay. Visit who long do hot? Good morning told people the local government is now requiring residents to actually pick through their trash and segregate out the plastic. So the community can deal with it. The woman pushes her trash carts who had paid and series of allies and along with her is a monitor from the neighborhood government. My name isse Danya Daleas, Akita speaking through a translator. So the policies that no segregation election so collection is free. But the household need to segregate their race food waste goes in one bag metals paper glass in another in two bags for plastic recyclable and nonrecyclable if residents don't comply with all this. They pay a fine. I offense by bonded vessels. Second offense one thousand and third going to Jane even jail for nuts. Separating plastic from your trash. There are hundreds of official neighborhoods in this huge city who long do hot is one of just sixteen now require residents to segregate plastic from their garbage. Is it enough? I asked the town secretary need to Yano you think it's going to work. I mean, it's. Like a soon. Nami aplastic. Now do not own. Well, sometimes I get mad as a community. We do our part to clean up the waste and educate people about the environment and in the beginning people call rate, but then they go back to their old ways. And it makes me sad. But even when people do do their best where does that plastic go? That's where it gets complicated. Some plastic bottles gets recycled. But then there are the sachets plastic packets that contain a single portion of soap or coffee your shampoo, that's how corporations like Unilever and Nestle market consumer goods in Asia. And most of these Shays cannot be recycled that rankles froylan. Greta he's with an environmental group mother earth foundation, which has sponsored the neighborhood cleanups. The problem is that for most of these companies, they feel they're responsible to their product ends the moment, they sell it. He says there's a reason us. Sachets end up in the ocean, and the Philippines, independent waste workers collect plastic and sell it to recyclers. But if it can't be recycled like, those Shays, it has no value doctoral waste Mercker, can you actually earned from this big collecting it. So they don't collect it groti has spent seventeen years looking for ways to get rid of plastic waste in our realizes that Filipinos can't dig out of this alone. Most packaging comes from just a few big companies. He says it's time they take more responsibility companies dumping all of this new products and packaging that is beyond their capacity to manage you earned from this in and you expect all of us to then magically just solve it for you. You can't just magically get rid of something that is permanent that doesn't degrade. It just keeps piling up. Remember that visited walking toward the beach plastic underfoot? I stopped to look at a huge pile of burlap bags stuffed with plastic waste a team of workers collected that waste one day's work. And yet they barely make dent. It's relentless and it buries itself in the sand and becomes permanent. Kick the stand aside. And there's a plastic tile. There's four or five straws Sanders, a half of a plastic bag and mixed in with coconuts and mangrove seeds. You know, it's just it gives you the feeling that you can't ever catch up. That's why many people throughout southeast Asia are now saying enough cleaning up isn't going to fix this. They want to take the fight to the corporations that create the plastic in the first place.

Carbon Dioxide Emissions Are Up Again. What Now, Climate?
"Support for this podcast and the following message. Come from internet essentials from Comcast. Connecting more than six million low income people to low cost high speed internet at home. So students are ready for homework class graduation and more. Now, they're ready for anything in Poland climate negotiators from around the world are meeting to figure out how to keep greenhouse gases out of the atmosphere. The task looks harder than ever as NPR's. Christopher. Joyce reports. New research shows emissions are getting worse for three years. The news about global emissions of the biggest greenhouse gas carbon dioxide was pretty good. They were leveling off. But then they started to rise again in twenty seventeen and they're still going up. Rob Jackson is a climate researcher at Stanford University last year, we thought was a blip or could be a blip. But it isn't this year were up again the second year in a row and emissions arising the slowdown. And then the uptick are largely the result of. What's been happening in China? Their economy has been slowing a bit, which is one reason the mission stalled. But now the government is trying to boost growth than are green lighting, some coal projects that had been on hold. India is also using a lot more coal as the government tries to bring electricity to millions. Who don't have it writing in the journal environmental research letters Jackson notes that Americans are using way less coal now. But like most everyone else in the world, they're using a lot more of another kind of fossil fuel. It's cheap gasoline were buying bigger cars, and we're driving more miles per vehicle. Another hurdle reported in the journal nature this week China is cleaning up its air pollution. That sounds great for pollution, weary Chinese citizens. But some of that air pollution, actually, cools the atmosphere. It blocks out solar radiation, less pollution. Ironically, could mean more warming some climate experts meeting in Poland are eager to point to successes rather than a Lou. Coming carbon apocalypse like Corine mccarey from the university of East Anglia in Great Britain. She says take a look at clean energy growth. Ninety owner and wind power. Yeah. Hasn't been investment by government, and by businesses and wind and solar energy. And these investments have driven down to cost down to where renewable energy can compete with coal for new power plants, but renewable energy is far from replacing fossil fuels and the gauche eaters in Poland. Just got a rude. Reminder of how hard that will be in France a proposed tax on gasoline meant to cut consumption caused widespread rioting the French government quickly put that idea on ice.
