"In the Brazilian Amazon has exploded under president Gyre Belson ARO. New data from the country's Space agency shows the rate of deforestation is at a 12 year high. The rain forest is home to approximately one million indigenous people. So what's the impact on on them? them? Gustavo Gustavo Fella Fella does does is is the the founder founder of of Info Info Amazonia, Amazonia, a a data data based based journalism journalism initiative. initiative. He He says says illegal illegal logging, logging, land land grabs grabs for for farming farming and and even even gold gold mining mining has been encouraged by the Bulls in our government. It's threatening indigenous people. So you have a lot of land grabbing and invasions and territories, Indigenous territories by this illegal miners, while the discourse and in both arms of course it's him. I called this is our cat miners. You know these people need to survive and just find some gold in the river is not like that. It's real mining going on were like huge, expensive machines. We've done that need for Macedonia large investigations showing that this is a big business connected to Amster done or Miami and as the pandemic evolves, and gold gets the highest price ever. There's no way of getting out of this because people won't Stop buying gold. The pressure is coming directly to the Amazon and fueling this illegal activities asked me to Boston, hers doing something no, not at all. Both. An arrow has had an ally in President Trump in terms of supporting industry over the environment, But there has been a shift. Incoming President Joe Biden has threatened economic consequences if deforestation continues. Do you think more international pressure could impact both scenarios environmental approach one way It's clear that economic pressure trade barriers my change, but at the same time you see the recent to Abidin mention, kind of energized the base of both of my arms and like that's what they want. They want to our hands on, so he creates a kind of political environment that is prone for the kind of nationalistic discourse as well. Let me ask you this. If pressure from the United States government isn't going to do the trick, then I'm wondering how concerned you are about what is happening in the Amazon and and what you see in the short term as the future there. Look, My main concern is that while this is happening, you know like this back and forth and pressure, international pressure damaged ones get more and more illegal. We know about drug trafficking. Of the FARC in Colombia has operated for years in the Amazon and now the Ambien guerilla group. Exactly so now that they're all mostly done in Colombia, all this trade routes of cocaine have moved to Brazil. The brew and the south part of Venezuela, and the war is fierce there. I don't know if you have looked at some point the home side rates of the Amazon cities right now, they just like the highest in Brazil, because all the you know like a criminal activity off the big centers of the South had moved there because they're trying to control that. And this money is linked to a lot of other illegal activities, including the four station because it's a big way of mounting your money and getting land and it's moving into illegal mining, legal mining off gold. It's huge. Now it's the highest level ever in the Amazon, all the Amazon countries, especially in south part of Venezuela. Which is controlled by the same Gabriel is that left London And so we have a regional security issue that is really building up. Most powerful A Rose is in Sao Paolo. He's the environment investigations editor at the Pulitzer Center and the founder of Info, Amazonia. Thank you very much. Thank you. Lula was a pleasure.

Union of Concerned Scientists' Dr. Rachel Cleetus Discusses What the Biden Administration Needs to Do to Address the Climate Catastrophe
"To the healthcare policy podcast on the host. David intra cosso during this podcast discussed with the union of concerned. Scientists climate energy programs policy director. Dr rachel cletus. What the biden administration needs to address mitigate the effects of the worsening climate crisis. dr cletus. welcome to the program. Hello david thank you so much for having me. dr cletus. bile is of course posted on the podcast website. This is my fifteenth climate crisis related interview on background. The climate catastrophe continues to accelerate hemispheric carbon concentrations are now measured at four hundred seventeen parts per million the greatest concentration of carbon in our species existence. Not surprisingly there's a ninety nine percent chance. Twenty twenty will be among the top five warmest years. Two thirds chance for sixty six percent chance that will be the warmest year on record. This year is also experiencing a record-breaking atlantic hurricane and with thirty named storms to date and record breaking wildfires in the arctic that is warming at upwards of three times the rate of the rest of the planet the albedo effect from the loss of summarized will be equal to the release of one tree tons of carbon equivalents in the atmosphere. This amount approximates forty percent of all human caused ghg emissions. Since seventeen fifty in addition northern permafrost that holds almost twice as much carbon dioxide is currently in the atmosphere his thawing seventy years earlier than previously predicted the plan is also experiencing unprecedented biological violation. Vector-borne diseases including covid nineteen continued to proliferate and the trump administration in denying scientific reality has rescinded approximately one hundred environmental regulations that i discussed with sabin centers. Michael burger last may and finally listeners are where he federal court ruled earlier. This year. that americans do not have a constitutional right to survivable climate. So with that welcome. Dr cletus again were here discuss climate policy under the vitamin station. So before diving into that. A doctor cletus Regarding my brief assessment. Is there anything. You'd like to add or alternative. I can i alternatively i can ask the question. The union put out a document a few years ago called the title the world scientists warning to humanity. so if you prefer to answer The ladder what was in that warning. I think you've just made out a very thorough set of reality that were tainted with respect to the climate crisis. Things that climatize this morning house project are now actually happening around a severe climate crisis. If you're now it's no longer about some distant problem and it's affecting us here in the united states and around the world you mentioned the record breaking hurricane season we've seen the cocaine season moby seem pretty extraordinary type wounds on the other side of her world with the teams being. Hit back to back. In the last few weeks we've seen extraordinary heatwaves around the world in europe in asia flooding And see living wage which is inexhaustible continuing slow moving disaster that many low-lying things around the world are facing Including as in the us Especially in on that. He's been go goes. We're at a point. Now where we are rapidly running out of time to address very new classes and as you pointed out as well we actually earn a moment for our nation is facing colliding. Place the covid nineteen pandemic as you mentioned but we also have a rapidly worsening economic crisis. We have a crisis democrats in our country. That is being made there In this moment so all of these colliding to creative patrician where underlying social economic disparities than discrimination being exacerbated and a climate crisis is holding a very inequitable way Around the world and here in the us so what we do now what the biden administration does and what future us administration to is very very important. The most significant difference. We're going to see is that we now have an administration that recognizes the fines will be guided by the signs and how they respond to the climate crisis instead of an administration that basically lied relentless me about the existence of Munchies the climate crisis that even the reality the cova christ who actually worked to make them more worse. So now we have a president who actually five instead of sidelining them and silence them yes. thank goodness. I will say As had been speculated trump's legacy will probably be moreover his Calling the crisis a hoax and of course Rescinding these operas of hundred epa mostly epa regulations. Let's get into What we might expect from the biden administration. We could start with. I did intend or ask you What did the biden campaign pledge to address the climate crisis. But let's let's pass on. That says now he's been elected you wrote In a union of concerned scientists blog post. I believe it was dated november seventh What the by presi means Relative to the climate crisis you identified Various aspects are measures that the biden ministrations should take under the title wet. President biden's should do on climate. You could note a few of these relative to what you think would be most productive coming from a biden administration. What's most important for the vitamin that administration to extend a very clear strong and early signal. They're going to take this challenge seriously. They wanna aggressive with all of that. They have so. I know that maybe have pointed out that In our democratic took them eighty the actions that the president together with the action congress that will really allow for full Aggressing of problems like climate crisis. And no doubt congress. Must say it's hard if we're going to get your They should have and comprehensive action. But there's a loss at the biden expiration can and should do on its own and much of that can be done fairly quickly Within the first hundred days of the administration taking power one quick forward and simple thing that everyone has been talking about is of course are getting back in the remount of the trump administration on november. four The final the us from the of women that is an action that puts us on the sidelines and uniquely isolated on the world stage where the only country that has actually stepped away from the therapy. We need to get back An after the responsible major nation of the world i together with other nations to raise invasion around a dozen the global climate crisis. And i miss fans there's no different the covid nineteen pandemic. we can solve the global complex challenges only when the app in concerts that other nations. So that's pretty straightforward It's not enough to just get back. In paris agreement we have to borrow A with domestic action. That shows that you are gonna take this seriously. We have to set signs and gone goals cutting He in mission here in the us. The ipc record and twenty eighteen all down some pretty cure now. Metrics are the growth of the global community would have to meet to stay below two degrees here. Aiming for one point five degrees celsius about pre industrial levels the temperature increase so. She do contribute. Its fair share to that. The us must be on a bad day to get to net zero emissions. No later than twenty for before. I'm have to be well on that. By twenty thirty having our mission show By twenty thirty to do that we're going to need action across the economy. Has inspector the biden administration should be directing every federal agency To make sure that they're incorporating climate science and their actions that they're looking for opportunities to go cut emissions as the bill climate billions to the climate impacts that are unfortunately already locked in Their action that the administration can take to the deputy voters and regulatory action to cut heat trapping emissions cosby economy. They should do so There are a number of very aggressive. Compensation decorative voter that Should be giving both back and one thing that is the has not recognize the now taking these kinds of ambitious actions requires leadership not just from the president but from his gatherer competitive agency. You'll be watching me. What appointments look like we need to have people in charge of these agencies and appointed to cabinet positions that recognize how climate change touch with every aspect of our economy and our lives and there needs to be david into their world view.

Oregon becomes first state to legalize magic mushrooms as more states ease drug laws in 'psychedelic renaissance'
"Tuesday was also a good night for more relaxed drug laws. Voters in Arizona, Montana, New Jersey in South Dakota, all legalized recreational marijuana. South Dakota also approved medical marijuana, and so did Mississippi. In Oregon voters approved some of the biggest drug policy rollbacks in the nation, They overwhelmingly approved an initiative to decriminalize all drugs. That includes cocaine, heroin and meth doesn't mean that these drugs are now legal just that if you're caught with small amounts, you probably won't go to jail or again also became the first state to legalize magic mushrooms but only used in licensed therapy settings here to talk about these measures, and what they mean is Herman Lopez, senior correspondent for Fox. Focused on criminal justice, guns and drugs High Hi. Thanks for having me. Well, have you let's begin with Oregon? And why did voters overwhelmingly, it appears approved this measure. So for years now, I think we've heard particularly from Democratic politicians this call to end the war on drugs and what that really means For a lot of people based on the support for this initiative, at least Is ending the criminal justice system's role in the war on drugs like making this a public health issue, something that's dealt with that and addiction treatment in hospitals and so on, but not through prison and jail and that Is essentially what drove this initiative not which not only decriminalizes drugs, but also puts redirects some state money to more treatment. And I guess it's a particular problem in drugs or problem everywhere. But Oregon has a particularly bad problem. I mean, pretty much every play every state in the US at this point, unfortunately, has some level of drug problem with the opioid epidemic and also just alcohol, misuse and addiction is really skyrocketed over the past few years. So unfortunate. I don't think Oregon's alone where Oregon was particularly bad, I think is that actually had pretty low levels of funding for addiction treatment on and that's one of the things that this initiative now seeks to fix. But it still is a NY Eyebrow razor, right When you see the headlines decriminalized all drugs. Do you think that this could change the drug conversation and the rest of the country? Yeah. I mean, it's toughly eyebrow raising. I mean, 10 years ago, Ah, no state in the country had legalized marijuana. And now some states are decriminalizing all drugs now granted marijuana legalization is allow sales, which, as you mentioned, this won't allow. But Yes, it's it's a big step and activists. I've talked to them, especially since they saw so much support in Oregon are hoping to like, Take this two more states across the country to really give way to that slogan, too. And the war on drugs. Well, let's talk about this other measure in or again to legalize certain uses of psilocybin magic mushrooms. Tell us about that. So there have been some studies showing that if you used these kind of like psychedelics and supervised setting, so there would be somebody like a trained facilitator, guiding you through essentially a hallucinogenic trip. Um, it can help some people he studies have been small, but they've helped people with PTSD, for example, with end of life anxiety. Some of the earlier studies were about people who have like terminal cancer and are really anxious. Like I think most of us would be about dying and It really helps essentially put thes people at ease to help them that there's lots of Interesting things in the research showing like some people find the spiritual connection. Some people just their brain to start thinking about these issues differently, regardless of what it is. It seems to work. And that's essentially what organ is now going to try to do is like in the supervised setting, so it's not going to be like a medical marijuana dispensary where you can go home with a bag of pot or whatever. But if you in the supervised sentence, you will be guarded. The really stripped you will essentially be able to use Psychedelics legally. And it's only mushrooms, though right, not LSD, or is it both? It's just so sad that that's what most of this research has focused on for lots of reasons, but So both the American Psychiatric Association and the Oregon Psychiatric Physicians Association opposed this measure. Why So I think one of the things that makes this one A bit tricky for medical folks in particular, is like we already have a process nationally for approving medications. That's the FDA regulatory process, like things go through clinical trials, and they're eventually approved. And unlike medical marijuana, say, 25 years ago. They're these drugs actually are already on clinical trial like that are already on that track. It's possible that regardless what Oregon did hear these medications could have been approved for national youth in a few years, and they're so likely to the FDA still overseeing those clinical trials. We're moving along. So I think that's that's a big obstacle here is like to put this in front of state voters. It's certainly an unusual way to approve medications, and one of the reasons that happened with marijuana was largely because The FDA was stifling research. But in this case that's not happening, So I think the argument is a bit different this time around. Okay. And then, as I mentioned earlier, several states passed recreational marijuana use and medicinal use. So where are we now across the country when it comes to legalizing weed. So 15 States have now legalized weed. Ah, and they've legalized sales. DC has on ly legalized possession, meaning it's kind of like a equalization model where you can't be arrested. But you also just don't even face a fine. But D. C has not legal ourselves who was blocked by Congress from doing so.

Dealing With Pilot Drug Tests
"Professional pilots, we have to deal with drug tests sometimes on a random basis, sometimes on a preemployment basis and you may be wondering how this all got started. Well, we have some. We have some druggies to thank. There was an accident in one, thousand, nine, hundred, Eighty, eight, and I have a link to the action report in our show coach. Accident in Durango Colorado Trans Colorado Airlines flight twenty, two, eighty, six, crashed during an approach. Now is the CO pilot who was flying. He was a not very competent co-pilot who had an alcohol problem, but alcohol was not a factor in this crash the captain. had been reportedly using cocaine about ten hours before the flight, his girlfriend related to. Others that they had been doing cocaine together although she refused to speak to the accident board. So as a result of this president, Reagan signed. A bill. That required alcohol and drug testing of people in the transportation business, and that includes of course pilots. So there's going to be background screening and drug testing of all airline employees and what they test for is marijuana cocaine opiates. PCP amphetamines. And you have to take that test prior to getting employed, and then you have to periodically take it on a random basis as a pilot or as as another worker. For example, ground school instructors, air traffic control workers, aircraft dispatchers, a nation mechanics. Flight attendants, flight instructors and ground security people they all have to drug test. So now you've heard me say this before if you are interested in recreational drugs like when you're on vacation or it's a few days off or something like that, you might want to consider getting into a different industry because you need to be drug free the rest of your life while you're an airline worker or airline pilot. So you can decide I know marijuana is legal here in Colorado, for example, and. During during the long shut down for Covid may be some people here in Colorado were tempted to to try it because it'll get out of your system and a few weeks. Not a good idea. You can be tested drug testing on a random basis at anytime. I remember when I was a a simulator instructor. At Boeing I had a call one day said you have to go to such and such an address and be drug tested and you have to show up within I? Think they gave me an hour to get to that location. So, I drove to that location and I already had to I had to pee pretty bad when I got there and wouldn't you know it? There was this one facility and there were a dozen people ahead of me in line it was a very painful weight and then I finally. Got Scene and and gave my specimen. But if I had if I had said, well, just can't go or. I just don't want to do it now or it's not convenient for me that would have been the same as refusing the test, which is basically for all practical purposes the same as failing test. There are lots of things in the regulation that talk about. About how they treat you if you refuse or fail a test, it's not the total end of your career, but there are some it may be or it may not be depending on your circumstances. I suppose if you're driving to the testing facility and you get in the car car accident or something that would be a legitimate reason to not show up other than that, you need to go and be tested when they tell you on a random basis, it's time to take a test. So when I was a united airlines as a as a captain on the triple seven, there were several times when I. was randomly drug tested upon arriving back at Kennedy from a Tokyo flight. And I had no no apprehension about taking drug test what I had an apprehension about was it might delay me and I might miss my commuter flight back to. DENVER. So united, they would send this message prior to our descent telling us that we're going to be drug tested, which is a really neat thing for the company to do because typically at the top of the. Sent. Before you start your descent, everybody goes to the bathroom and then after you land, you might not need to go again for a while. So they gave us a little forewarning and then when you land in a case like that, there's someone from from management who meets the crew and escorts them to the to the drug testing facility, which is at the
Travel To Medellin
"Let's open today's travel with Rick Steves travel writer Dave Seminar. He took his whole family to many in Columbia which used to have a reputation as the headquarters for a dangerous drug cartel. Our interview was recorded just before the global lockdowns kicked in. Hey. Thanks for having me on the show wreck. So you went to Medigene I, mean the image of Medina's like scariest a generation ago is one of the most dangerous cities on the planet. That's right. But but it certainly isn't any longer. I mean these days the murder rate in Medellin is lower than New Orleans Saint, Louis Chicago and several other cities as well. It's an amazing turnaround and. Tourism. Is a booming part of the economy I was just there. My son loves it so much. He bought a condo there and I was there for years this last year with him and we were standing on his balcony and and everybody was blown up fireworks and My son had a Colombian friend there with him and and we were talking about. It and when the Colombians see those fireworks, they remember in the days of Pablo. Escobar. That's what they would explode when they made a deal in the United States with the with the drug trade they're not making deals with the drug trade anymore with the Pablo Escobar outfit that's just celebrating. So they've gone from supplying America's cocaine habit to actually building A. City on live biting entrepreneurs. That's true. They I Columbia is still does produce eighty percent of the cocaine I mean to be frank. However look I went there with my ten and twelve year old sons and my wife, and I would never take them to a place that I thought was too dangerous. So I really consulted with a lot of different people before. Going, there, however, my parents and several other people said, Columbia. You're taking your sons to Columbia you nuts but I did my research and I talked to enough people who had had great experiences there that I felt comfortable doing it and we spent two weeks traveling all around the country and I felt very safe. The whole time tell us about the public tour. It was interesting. You know my wife said Pablo Escobar to are you sure that that's appropriate for our sons who are ten and twelve years old side I called one of the tour companies that had good reviews on trip advisor and he said Oh yes our tour is good for children aged six and up said really okay. Well, let's do it. We thought maybe we can teach them. Okay. He's a bad guy you know here's the. Evils of drugs and teach them a little bit about why the drug violence in and I thought maybe they a lot of it might go over their head but I thought well, they'll learn something. Let's do it but you go through a you goes through your neighborhood community thirteen, which is now trendy. It's filled with street art and is just a festival of good living not good living. It's still a poor area but a festival of happiness. Community Thirteen is sort of an interesting area I've I've found it to be one of the more disappointing stops to be honest with you on the tour I mean, it doesn't really have much to do with Pablo Escobar although it was a neighborhood that was wracked by gang violence, and then in two thousand eleven, the government installed a series of escalators there the idea was. Allowing people to be able to move safely through the community, get from their hilltop neighborhoods down to where jobs and transportation and things of that are. But when I was there in July about the experience maybe if you traveled at a different time of year, you might have an off more authentic experience, but it was absolutely full of tourists which really shocked me because here is. Sort of an impoverished neighborhood that has all credit to them. I. Think it's wonderful. They found a way to turn the violence of the neighborhood into a marketable commodity, but it was absolutely crawling with tourists and I sort of felt like, wow I really don't like going to places that are too full of tourists. So for me, it fell a little bit flat to be. Quite honest. But maybe if I visited another time of year, I would have I would have liked more. No, I don't think. So I mean I was there in the winter but to me, it was a former violence ridden gang ridden community that now is a kind of a tourist trap and it just like an amusement pier in San Francisco, almost or something like that. And what was really fun was the street art I mean, the street art was like it's like going through an art gallery and it's all this edgy colorful tropical kind of street art and you've got it all together by escalators I can imagine before those escalators came you know ten years ago you would have desperately poor people and You'd have the intimidation of the gangs and all of that and and the high murder rate and today there's there's not a hint of that and the escalators let people connect and I think you know the way Columbia has invested in its infrastructure has given poor. Barrios the confidence and the feeling that this is progress and changes possible and and one thing great about going to Medine is you write these cable cars because the city is in a very mountainous area and the poorest communities are pushed way up the mountain sides. But these cable cars, they're just like cable cars had a ski resort. They connect the people in the poor neighborhoods with the good jobs and the good shopping and the good entertainment down in the valley floor and writing these cable cars was just a kind of a celebration of community to me what was your experience on those cable cars? Well I love the cable cars just like you know I took the cable cars up to the park. RV. which is it's a long ride as interesting things that you take two different sets of cable cars. You can take one set of cable cars, which sort of goes through some of the rough hillside neighborhoods, and that one is actually fairly quite cheap to go through and actually when you're. On that first cable car, you're actually getting ordinary people who live in those neighborhoods coming on and off of your Gondola but then to go on the second. Gondola. which takes all the way up the mountain up to the park RV, which is just fantastic and I do recommend that that significantly more expensive so that that second cable you know Gondola is more for tourists in it's it. Would be too expensive for people who live in the humble neighborhoods. But as a traveler, it's worth it's worth it to do
