Fresh update on "colorado state university" discussed on Climate Connections
"I'm doctor Anthony Liza Woods, and this is climate connections. A decade ago, two thirds of the electricity produced in Colorado came from coal. But natural gas, wind and solar power have expanded quickly, and the state is planning for all but one of its coal plants to close within a decade. Coal, which was once king is no longer king. It's going away. That's former Colorado governor Bill Ritter. He now directs the center for the new energy economy at Colorado state university. He says the transition away from coal creates uncertainty for communities that have long depended on mines and coal fired power plants. They're a big part of the tax base. They're a big part of the employment base and there have been generations of people who've worked either in the coal mines or to coal fired generation. His organization works to help these communities plan for the future. He says some may pivot to producing renewable energy, or focus on new industries such as tourism. He says no one solution will fit every community, and local workers, business leaders and policy makers will need to work together to plan for the future. Our work is to try and help them understand that the transformation is happening. And then ask the question, what do you want to be? Let's chart a new vision.

Opportunities for Skillful Weather Prediction
"My name is elizabeth. Barnes i go by libby an associate professor in the department about miss science here at colorado state university. You told me a little bit. Broadly speaking about your interest research wise and things like that. I guess in broad terms. I'm a climate scientists. I've been studying. Climate dynamics that includes climate change but also the earth's climate as it is today as it wasn't in the past and really probably on this podcast but also might broad interest are in the data science side. So how do we use. Data and analysis tools be at statistics mathematics modeling to understand the system and all of the interacting pieces. Could you go into little depth about the data. You're interested in even what's available as most listeners. Do some data science. Maybe they're used to working on the internet where it's as easy as just tracking something but the earth has been leaving us clues for a while. What do you have access to to study specifically the part of atmospheric science i study. I'd like to say we actually really have data coming out our ears. We have so much data. That's not all good data but one of the reasons. I'm so excited about eight science machine. Learning techniques is how can we utilize the data that we have even when some of it. Maybe isn't perfect. For example we have in science in climate science. We have paleo record so ice cores that tell us what the climate looked like hundreds of thousands of years ago today satellites that are constantly there orbiting the earth or sitting still and staring at one place over and over again and they're pouring data in all of the time sometimes it's hard to just get data and process it once we have it than you know so we can do fun stuff just getting it into a processed form is a lot of work. We have climate model data so we have these big climate models that are being run on supercomputers all over the world to try to help us understand the climate system and they are out putting a lot of data in people need to look at it to try to answer and ask interesting questions about the our system and we have people here my department. I don't do this. Atmospheric scientists say with a weather balloon or radar and actually measuring thinking about the weather and the climate state. Right where you are.
Women Scientists Launch Climate Campaign Aimed at Mothers
"Six percent of americans are worried about global warming among moms that number is even higher. We know that climate change is a threat to all people and in particular are kids. Melissa bird has a young daughter and she's a climate scientist at colorado state university. She says that although many moms are worried about global warming many do not feel equipped to take action. They don't have the resources to understand the climate issue completely and aren't sure what they can actually do to tackle it so burden. A group of other women. Scientists teamed up to create a campaign called science. Moms moms tend to trust other moms. And we scientists want to be that credible neutral messenger to educate moms to inspire moms and really empower them to use their voices on its website. The science mom's group provides short videos debunked. Climate myths and offers ways to get involved for example includes a sample letter. Descend to a member of congress. Bird says the website is designed for moms but we want all parents to have a better understanding of what climate change is all about and then get all to really want to take action in that
2021 Hurricane season: 17 named storms predicted this year
"Forecasters say hurricane season which starts June 1st this year is likely to be busier than usual. NPR's Greg Allen reports. Researchers at Colorado State University are projecting 17 named storms and eight hurricanes. The seasonal outlook, released by Colorado State University says there may be four major hurricanes with the nearly 70% chance One of them will make landfall in the U. S. Researchers say a major factor they don't expect an El Nino this year. That's a climate pattern in the Pacific that typically makes it harder for hurricanes to form in the Atlantic. Half a world away and in the Atlantic water temperatures are expected to be warmer than usual in the areas were hurricanes typically form If that forecast holds up, it would be the sixth year running with above average hurricane activity last year broke all records with 30 named storms and six

Do you guys think that you do see a lot of studies about dogs? You're not crazy. There are a lot of studies about dogs and their loved. They're used for a but there's a I just think that if you're angling to do a study Hugh for the dogs. Did you get the money? Get the money learning be able to do a good fun project for your PhD or Matt. That's right. And I absolutely absolutely love this. And even though researchers at Colorado State University proved this theory in 2012 Um, the University of Glasgow in Scotland got some big money and what they wanted to find out is you know what kind of music does you know?

Ah, you don't know that energy flow sounds. It sounds like a lot anyway. Then, when they study how dogs respond to different styles of music. It's reggae and soft rock that the dogs really is really like. And you can institute change and I mourn up their act when you're gone, and we're gonna have to wait till they do the sun back. They don't study too much. Okay, The money goes to the DA Grace. Okay, that's that's staring. Number one. It's a lot more money and food a lot more. We really are.

Anything. That gave me assure you though camps increasingly we've seen college athletes speak up for themselves. Yesterday a group representing a thousand big ten football players wrote a letter blasting the NC double a. for not having a nationwide plan for keeping athletes safe through demanding testing from third party mandatory quarantines for someone even presumed positive and penalties for anyone who violates protocols or fails to report violations well Unfortunately, we're back together today to discuss what I would deem a significant increase in positive test, and there have been reports of players behaving on safely at review. Of the contact tracing the primary source, the spread appears to be an off campus party. But when you read between the lines of this letter, they're really suggesting even if there are rules in place, we don't trust the people in charge to follow them think about how much money college sports bring in even if there's no one in the stands, TV. Packages bring millions for a big university. If one positive test means you gotta quarantine the entire offense of line would you maybe think about just telling that student to stay in their dorm and keep quiet?

Dr. Elaine Ingham, Soil Scientist
"This week. Cultivating places women's history month interviews gets to the very basics of horticultural work with soil. The soil world is integral foundational to the plant world. Since the nineteen eighty s mainstream academic soil science has been transformed into a search for biological discovery. It is a fundamental shift from a science that seemed blinded by the theories of the Green Revolution from the nineteen twenty s through the nineteen seventies. The Term Green Revolution refers to innovations intended to increase food supply around the world specifically through introductions of new often dwarfed sometimes genetically modified varieties of cereal grain crops developed for high yield along with introductions of synthetic fertilizers herbicides and pesticides often derived from the chemical byproducts of World War Two the Green Revolution asserted increased production of and reduced pest and disease damage to crops. Managed by these men made inputs over traditional agricultural methods. Beginning in the late nineteen seventies however more voices started questioning the long term results and benefits versus serious disadvantages of these methods. Many of the voices raised in opposition. Women's voices among them was Dr Elaine. Ingham Elaine's work in microbiology. At the Colorado State University for Collins in the nineteen seventy s through the nineteen eighties began illuminating. The incredibly complex living systems at work in healthy soil. Her work is strongly associated with the concept of a soil food web and in the beginning of this century. She is the founder of Soil Food Web Inc and she's here to share more about her work. Welcome Elaine thank you very much. I'm very honored to be here. So you have had a really long interesting career in which you have accomplished and articulated some really interesting. And seminal things for our field of interest Plant life here and how it relates to so much else. Can you describe for listeners? What does your work consist of right? Now especially as it relates to soil and plant life lane right now where. I'm still continuing to work on. What is the soil food web? How is it different in different? Parts of the planet given climate season changing weather patterns. Things like that. How do these organisms interact with each other to help? Plants grow or what are the conditions that results in the disease causing or not beneficial organisms winning out over the beneficial's all those stages of succession and so many people doesn't don't understand that it's the biology that pushes succession along at. What's really altering things so that next stage of plant life will succeed into that system and then of course. Those new plants communion alter the biology in the soil which sets the stage for the next stage of succession. So lots were of information yet to go and only really begun to scratch a surface soil. The MORE QUESTIONS. We answered the more questions. Come up I think is is so often the case so before we get into the technicalities of this big interesting wide world that you are studying take us back a little bit and set the scene for us of of where you grew up and the kind of journey of your work of the people in places in plants that grew into a person. For whom this would be your. Life's Focus Elaine. I grew up in Minnesota so the frigid northlands and I thought every place in the world had twenty five feet of snow in the wintertime. That was just how everybody else lived. It was a kind of a shock when I learned it was different than that so my father was a veterinarian At the University of Minnesota and he would take me into his laboratory. He took me because I was the only one of his offspring who was interested in laboratory work and I remember at the age of six years old. My father sat me down at a microscope. Wasn't quite sure what to do with me. I couldn't be running around the halls getting into trouble. So what is he going to do plops down in front of a microscope and says county coli so he showed me how to make the microscope slides and start counting and he wanted me to do twenty five fields and he figured that it would take me a long time to get twenty five fields. If he coli counted he was right. So a my first introduction to the microscope my father and I worked on all my science projects through the course of middle school and high school and I went off to college at Saint Olaf College in Northfield Minnesota Various Scandinavian Norwegian school. One at the top Pre Med schools in the United States. But I decided I did not want to go to medical school. I had met some of the people I worked as a In the heart hospital as a lab dishwasher during my senior year and discovered. I really didn't like those people. They were too con- focused on the wrong things. I wanted to stand how the world works. Not How you get the patient to spend the most money on the most expensive drugs and you know all of that. medical It was just an anthem. It to me so I decided to go to graduate. School went to Texas am where I worked in Marine Microbiology on the digest organisms in the digestive systems of oysters and freshwater mussels on started understand that you know science purports many ways the academic world reports that it knows everything we found all the answers. And so just ask me. I can answer all your questions and began to discover that that is absolutely not a case There's so much we don't know that it's overwhelming and the methodologies that people often use to try to collect the data and then the misinterpretations that they perform in explaining the world if if you take the material inside the digestive system of an oyster in played it out on a petri dish you're only going to find two or three species because we are so changing the the habitat think about the inside of an oyster versus In a medium in a plastic petri dish that you spread a point one meal of choice tres digestive system and and how many microorganisms well? I looked through the microscope at those organisms and I noted that there were literally a hundred different species of bacteria that I could see a couldn't identify them to genus and species. But I could see there. Were one hundred different things that were totally different. Egmore Doing very different things and so I figured I should be seen that many little colonies coming up on my petri dishes and I was seen one or two. And so how can you use that method? Petri plate methods. Do not allow you to get an inkling of what the diversity is out there in the real world and yet that was the standard of microbiology. That's what you had to do to start the organisms in now. Fill in the blank. Whatever you want to write so there'd been a lot of work done on the ecology of different ecosystems that were just completely inappropriate. When it comes to understanding any of these

"The Colorado State University rams by the final of sixty two forty eight the rams are in the interview room was still open here from Emily Conroe out here with us will definitely hear from the falcons in the interview room in Crisco Brecht and company I can tell you that the rams head coach ryun Williams said that he said you know what those first two threes that Air Force hit he said there was a little bit of shock value right there for us and he said we never really quite recovered after that and I thought they were they just felt big at the time it only felt big because again they let Breanna Autry Tom to kind of shoot letter be wide open in the second game and she really had a tough time she was three of thirteen from the field and all four from the three point line of that second meeting and she came out with a purpose a man she not those two three dash three threes down and he got the feel of this could be a pretty special night for Air Force it turned out that was the case and R. A. O. G. player of the game we're going to give why the couple I think we're gonna split it between Emily Conroe number thirteen and number one it Bree Anna Autry because both were just outstanding Branagh Autry was six of sixteen from the field she finished with fifteen points three rebounds four assists just two turnovers really controlled the pace of the game darting inside setting up other players and hitting somebody big baskets those two threes to start the game those might have been the two biggest baskets of the game for Air Force so brand Autry one of our A. O. G. players of the game the other is Emily Conroe played thirty one minutes how tough for she ten points eleven rebounds for four steals in the game and that she would wind up with five all offensive rebounds in the contest and Air Force would have eighteen eighteen all offensive rebounds and Emily Conroe is going to come over here and join us right now we're going to get a chance to sit and visit with her and talk about this game because what Air Force did whether it was on the glass whether it was defensively the falcons are just so many ways played so so well in beating Colorado State University and so we welcome man Annaly Conroe first of all congratulations that was a heck of an effort by your team thank you so much Sir what was the difference in your mind home we came in knowing that we should win that we've been playing so well that there was no reason for us not to what and so we just came out like we're gonna win this I asked coach go Brecht I said you've been here three four years out of this tournament I said you come in winning five of your last seven I. city does this feel different now this time around the last three four years and she said yeah because we're kind of getting used to winning a little bit I think that's what you're talking about yeah absolutely we expect to win now it's not like I hope we would know what when he got off to such a great start as a team how big were there those baskets by Breanna to open the game they were huge Colorado state last game all stood in the paint on green breed this game was like you got to guard me there's no standing in the paint now we talked about that during the game because she was three of thirteen shooting Jews all four from the three point line and you just sense let me check out that down it you kind of look down the court like yeah okay come on you don't want to cover me let's go I thought you shot so well you shot at shooting kind of cooled off in the second quarter and in the third quarter but I thought your defense first made it to last minute was outstanding what did you do specifically if anything special did you do anything defensively we came out saying in the we're gonna be in your face we're going to be in your passing lanes nothing's going to be easy on for you on offense we're not going to let you get use the stuff we're gonna make you work for everything and I just kind of helped us be so good defensively defensively we told them you can't get enough in you had four steals yes some big once you're at the very edge you know with the ramp to kind of hang around a little bit it and it you know one point the lead got down to ten it was fifty two forty two and then you add a couple of big steals it I think that really sealed it you make those deals you hit those pockets what do you think it right back down the floor I'm like this time we've got a a a a because you make a steal to make it fifty six forty two that over to make it fifty eight forty two and I get to stick around Vegas a little bit the falcons haven't had much luck here as you go okay in the past and now you got Boise state you play them twice this year both close games they won seventy sixty one and they beat you at home seventy four sixty nine you were in both games March yes we were all right well this should be a fun time tomorrow at seven o'clock at graduation thank you so much thank you so much for joining us that simply Conroe R.

"You done any connection with using AI and Amazon rivers yet or is that still something that is sort of in the future for you actually. I don't have a paper on it. You know you're getting the great so we we do have a little work where I have. Previous students have shown that while our weather models aren't very good at predicting these phenomena these atmospheric rivers rivers in the sky Three weeks or four weeks ahead of time which sounds crazy we can actually do that. With observations so in essence the information is in the observations but the climate models in our weather models can't do it yet so this is a great opportunity for data analysis and looking for these patterns in the data we have And so what we're trying to do to link with this area work is say okay. These neural networks great at finding patterns. Maybe they can do even better than the simple statistical tools that were already using and the answer is so so far they can do as well and now we're trying to figure out. Can they do actually better. But then we use these tools of understanding. What the network learn to say? Okay if I can predict an atmospheric river in three weeks with one of these artificial neural networks. How did I do it? Where did where did the information come? From right cool. I could predict that an atmospheric river is going to hit La. You know in in February seventh but as a scientist. I don't think any of US really know how it would do that. And if we could figure out how we might find a tele connection that we've or of some sort we didn't know about before Orlando atmosphere feedback we didn't know existed. And so right now we are using these tools to figure out. Why is it working and if we can figure that out we're going to learn new climate leading? It's super awesome. I have a student. UH-HUH PH student. Kastenmaier goes that's that's her project. So nice stay tuned as a Colorado. And I'm interested. I mean I know you don't get the direct force of it but let us know events or amplified from that. So obviously and I think from my point Atmospheric rivers are not. It's we're going to learn patterns patterns of the climate system and you know it may bring an atmospheric river to the north of the south but that same thinking may end up tying about snow events coming from the Gulf or talks about tornado activity inhale activity in the southeastern spring which we've also shown has similar connections so it opens sort of our eyes is to a lot of possibilities of applications. I'm always interested in how faculty members or research scientists end up sort of in the field that they end up in the topics that they end up in. I know your family has a history of research in science and So how did you end up. I in meteorology atmosphere science science but then that mistake riverport extra tropical circulation part. How did that sort of find your way to you? Or how did you find your way to it. Okay do you want the the long story or the one-sentence story how would it be in the mid three centers. Yes yes so actually. When I was twelve I saw the movie? Contact talked with jodie foster. If this okay this is a great start young and I saw her story by Carl Sagan I believe and they made it into a movie and I saw it and I went into my dad's office. Who's a professor And whatever she does I want to do it and he said that's a physicist it. She was an astrophysicist. uh-huh and I said I don't know how to spell that but that's what I want to be when I grow up so my whole life was training to be Jodie foster and I did get a degree quote. Vote Particle Physics as an Undergrad. So I did do physics with math and I. My emphasis was particle particle physics. And all of my summer research was High Energy Particle Nickel Physics but Abou- Junior Year of college I was at Fermilab in Chicago. Look at a particle accelerator and a small fire broke out and everything ended up being fine but I realized that these people had spend spent millions and millions of dollars and ten years is to build this one thing to study this one part about neutrinos and it could all go up in flames. I realized that is that was. I wanted to ask ten questions a day. The one question every ten years so I that day decided I was going to change. They do but I didn't know what to do. And so actually this is gonna Tom. This is not the typical is stared at thunderstorms out. The window story It's the opposite. Honestly I said what system is so complicated. I will always have a job because we will never understand and I decided to. Earth system was so complex with the atmosphere of the ocean. Space that that it wasn't such a bad thing. Plus climate change was really starting to be talked about and I said this is something I care about and it's complicated. So that's how I ended up in the field. I decided go to Grad School in Atmospheric Science in terms of atmospheric rivers. How'd I get there honestly? It turned into a Starting Talk to my colleague. Eric Maloney who studies tropical dynamics and we said what are some cool problems. We can work on some together. That's great so I. My house was destroyed by Atmospheric River. Anything like that yeah. Well I'm really excited to see the the research that you and your group produced in the coming years You guys have a lot going on a lot of castle go so much fun.

"We're joined now by Dr Libarnes Associate Professor of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State. And you talk at Ms Twenty Twenty Titled Viewing Climate Signals through in a islands Dr Barnes thanks so much for joining us today. Yeah sure I think the CODA this is how we spend so in general sort of like a buzzword and then when you link it with climate and weather modeling sounds super sexy. Nobody Bono's very interesting and it's like this is awesome but then I'm like okay. What is actually happening? So as if you could give us an idea of where we are terms of using this technology in the field of weather and climate sure okay. Okay Great So I think the first thing to start with is me a few years ago. I think is like a lot of people right now. which is you hear? Ai Or machine learning and you get really excited until someone asks actually asks you about it and then you go. I really don't know what I'm talking about right now And in in many ways I would say when I will get to your question but just thinking big picture what what do these words mean to a scientist not to Google Amazon. But what do they mean to us. And I'll tell you the more I dug into these topics which is truly my love. I I am a climate dynamics but I'm data nerd. That's really what I am. I realize we're already doing these things already. We call it data analysis. We've downloaded that. CVS file we opened it up but we start making plots and then we think about. How do I make that plot a little differently? Or what on my ex axes. What time I see? That's what these tools are. They're just another one and so when I give talks on this I start with saying we have linear regression. We have if you know at UF analysis we have these tools. This is just another one. This is my this is my second wrench if you will in my toolbox So in terms of where are these topics in the field. I think personally I. You've heard the phrase data science probably say in my group were trying to put the science and the data science. It's not just the tools but it's how es them the weather community. I mean these tools have been around for a long time first of all But in the weather community it's really about often and prediction. And it's how do we make a better prediction. How do we save more lives and so in that sense? I think these tools are starting to be used because they can help us make this better predictions actions but in climate. We talk about projections right. Like what's GonNa Happen in two thousand one hundred. We're not actually try saying we're going to predict ten years from now yet or twenty years from now. So how do we use these tools and in my group the thing we're most passionate about here in the thing I'm most excited about is we can use these the tools to better understand the climate system and the physics itself and I think to answer your question. We're very early on. I would say even a year ago I would have said we're not we. We don't know what we're doing there yet And I think the big part of that is whether these are really black boxes or not you here. Probably a lot of people say machine learning. He's just blackbox. We're not going to actually do science with it. If you want to predict whether we're hurricanes go maybe you'll do better. But where's the science and I think the work we're doing with my group and and collaborators is saying these are not black boxes if you will that was so five years ago And and they're actually we can see inside these now and learn new physics physics not just better predictions. That's interesting yes. So why is that so I I sort of read your abstract and the term artificial neural network. Because I'm basically the a component that's your back. Vox Black Anymore. Gotcha so why is it important to see the decisions. It's making like why it seems like that is now a big piece of what you're doing is the big case. Absolutely okay so if our goal is to determine how much rain's GonNa fall tomorrow you you may say I really don't care how you do it. I actually did have someone in charge of water resources in California. Send me an email one day and say libby. I don't care if you use Tarot cards. We D Board or science. Tell me how much rain is GONNA fall in three weeks and I was as a scientist appalled and responded. That's fair they need to care about the science so then you have to stop as I'm writing the semen on. Why do we need to care about the science? Here's someone determining whether we should let water out of a reservoir or keep it in you know for for California water so this is a big deal and and the end. I came to the conclusion that really. If we don't understand the science we are a great risk of what we call them more technically over fitting of thinking we know what's going on making new predictions ends and having them being ridiculous wildly out to lunch but if we understand the physics say f equals a or conservation of mass. We know as we go along and get more and more extreme. We're are still within the rules right and so I responded to her saying I do still think we need some some science in here. I don't know if I convince her. But but because because of that it means that it does matter to not just make better prediction but we also want to know why no scientists. It's also our job to ask why as well And so I think the big issue with understanding why I'm is twofold one is this idea over fitting So the idea that got your blackbox menu a really good job on the data that you have but next year new Dave is gonNA come in it will fail miserably but if you understand how it was learning Yep nope we may realize it's not going to do a good job on your data I need to tweak it but the second is just like when we're trying to understand say the physics of the climate it system if we and this is what my group is having a lot of fun. With if we the Problem Upright and creatively we can have science come out and actually actually. In my case the prediction part is really boring so I I don't know if later we'll talk more about the talk and what we do but I'm going to predict. Ah I predict something with these artificial networks this Ai. That's Super Dole. No one would pay me for it and actually my son knows the answer. And he's five but what's cool is set the problem so the predictions boring. But how the A I was able to figure that out the thing the five year old could ends ends up with very complex climate dynamics repercussions. So that's why we're having so much fun. Yeah what type of phenomena is this technology. Legiti good at predicting or think will be good at predicting i. It's sort of weird question. Because he said it's sexually sort of boring. It's predicting but it's yeah I think think for for my. I'm not gonNA speak for the whole field because I'm by no means an expert on all the tools we use but at least for US artificial or networks they are they are great patterns so as humans we are actually amazing pattern recognition. That's what our brains do. And there is a reason these are called artificial neural networks. The the neural part relating to our brain although computer scientists are now saying forget that relationship their brains are not like these things but The the point being though that I think they're great for patterns and finding patterns data and as a climate scientists. It we all make maps all the time. We're looking at patterns all the time time with even whether we're thinking about what happens when we've got a big high pressure in the Pacific what's going to happen in the Atlantic and we're confer blobs patterns. So I think these tools at least in climate they have a great possibility of finding these connection these causal connections which is what our science is all about. Because that's what they're set up to do. Okay Okay Gotcha also done a lot of work with atmospheric rivers and that's actually you're receiving the twenty twenty Clarence Leroy my singer award for your work work and Extra tropical circulations response to climate. Change has have.
The Rediscovery Of The Colorado Orange Apple
"As the decade comes to a close we can now report that in fact you can mix apples and oranges well kind of in the western. United States Apple. Well an thr- apologists are excited about the rediscovery of an apple variety that was believed to be extinct. It's called the Colorado Orange Apple Jud Shannon Meyer of the Montezuma Orchard Restoration Project in South Western Colorado. Helped track down the Orange Apple. We asked him what makes it so special so the Colorado oranges a mix of sweet and tart being a winter apple. The flavor opens up over time so winner apples like the Colorado orange. You wouldn't even think of starting to eat until Christmas. You'd go through all your summer apples all your fall apples. You'd have these in the root cellar. And then starting Christmas. You'd start to pull these out and month by month. The flavor would open up a little bit of the suite would go a little bit of the. Tang might but they were still going to be very flavorful. They have some of the most complex flavors of any apples. You'll ever have. They said culinary have some of the most complex flavors you'll ever have anything. The Colorado Orange was popular in the late eighteen hundreds but around the nineteen forties. It started to disappear the biggest thing it had going against. It was a yellowish wish. Orangish glow apple at a time when America was going into monoculture where shiny red apples were considered the only apples worth buying. It wasn't because it was bad quality or didn't grow. Well it lost out like so many of the thousands and thousands of apple varieties that have gone extinct. It lost out because it wasn't the Shiny Red Apple Shanta Shanta Myer says locals around Canyon City Colorado cherished the Orange Apple. They knew it was a really high quality apple winner Apple. Good Keeping Apple in in Canyon. City of the memory of it was kept alive for a long time in the old timers. Like Oh yeah. I used to have a tree at died but we kept thinking there was still going to be one around we. We felt like we could still find one and so he and his wife. ADDIE started combing the state two years ago. We were in Canyon City in this orchard in December. And this person Mr Diana said. Hey I've got a tree also and he took us to a tree my wife. Addie and I looked at it and Lo and behold on the ground underneath the tree and the duff there were. These orange blushed apples apples and then on the tree. There were some of the apple still hanging and it had that really good sub acid flavorful. Taste that you'd expect from a winner apple so yeah it was a it was a a big moment for us. But the Shannon Myers have been careful and taking their time. They did cutting edge. DNA testing and compared their find to some archival wax apple full replicas at Colorado State University. They wanted to make sure they'd found the actual orange apple of memory because it's considered extinct. There's probably never in absolute but we've got his close to an absolute as we can between this newest new DNA technology the historical purvey of the orchard itself in and the waxed apple to compare it to. That's an extraordinary amount of information that most people would never be able to have to compare anything and so in a couple of years once the a young trees get going.

How New Techniques Can Help Us Deal With the Climate Crisis
"Guest today is Dr Chris Fisher who's professor of anthropology at Colorado State University. He's Nakhila Gist he's director of the center or archaeology on remote-sensing and he's founder and director of the Earth Archive Chris Welcome and thanks for joining us. Hey thank you so much for having me now. You've been working in the jungles of Central America archaeological surveys and you've been using a new technique technique called LYDA which I I associate with the self-driving cost but that's obviously something else that and you've you've actually from that moved all the way to a link with how we manage climate change. That's not very clear the way I've explained it but I'm sure you could select. I don't so summit I was trained as a traditional archaeologist using methodologies that have been around since since the nineteen fifties and in two thousand nine nine documented for the first time a very large and complex city lady that we didn't know was there in central Mexico and using traditional technologies it would have taken me couple decades maybe to fully survey map all the buildings in this place and understand it and so. I I got frustrated and I turned to this. This new technology called lied are which is basically a way we use airborne lider which is a little different than the terrestrial kinds of light are that are are on self driving cars or et. CETERA in using this kind of light. Are you have some sort of aerial platform could be fixed. Wing aircraft crafted a helicopter in the future. We'll be drains although that technology isn't white sophisticated enough right now for us ah from their crafty should down a grid of infrared beams laser pulses. It's like sonar for the ground when when one of those pulses reaches something on the an object on the ground could be a top of a treaty could be a bird could be a leaf to be the surface of the Brown it returns back to the sensor in the aircraft and it gives you a measure distance every second that instrument shootout like a million pulses so it's a very dense grid no matter how intense the vegetation some of those pulses will reach the ground surface and return to the aircraft craft so what you end up with is three dimensional cloud of points at an incredibly high resolution so we can by using computer algorithms filter away digitally scrub or practice what I and other people have been calling digital deforestation. We can remove that vegetation. NC The archaeology on the ground. I've used that it technology I leased in Mexico and it was absolutely groundbreaking when I saw my first products from that light are I honestly I teared up because I realized that you know in forty five minutes of flying we accomplish the lighter company had accomplished. Bush would've taken decades archaeologically and then we also use it in hunt girth to discover some new law cities that we didn't necessarily know were there and so was a groundbreaking technology in that sense for archaeology alone but what would I realize is that all of that vegetation that I spent decades or that you know the legislation that I spent days days days days. Scrubbing scrubbing away are the careers of hundreds of other scientists who are actually studying the trees tree size or composition tree age geologists hydrologist. It's instead the top typology of that place in many other things that we don't even know in returning ending ruin a how to use these records yet but I know that they're critically important in the net sense these lighter records are the ultimate conservation records it's because they record the ground surface in everything on it it incredibly high resolution and that led me to the ultimate resolution br realization that we can use these records to fight climate change to how would you do that well for most most areas of the world we don't have high resolution records of the Earth surface and everything on were basically kind of shooting in the dark. We have a better idea we have better maps of the moon then we do of our own planet surface so the measure change you need to measure against something. You need baseline data so you can understand how things are changing. We don't have that for most of the world so we can't begin to evaluate change. We can't begin to measure tinge figure out how things are changing the first rational the first step in fighting the climate prices is having those baseline data so we can begin to measure teams so how practical is that because the US is a big a big space as partly why we use satellites facilities because they can cover such a big area area but you're actually using aircraft does spacecraft so you will need an awful lot of it will be expensive and you know it will be time consuming but it has to be done and we. I mean from our perspective. We don't have a choice now. We can start with areas of the world that are most threatened so one of our media goals is to seeing the Amazon. We believe that we can see him the Amazon in five years within five years or fifteen million dollars which sounds like a lot of money but it's not that much money fifteen million. It's half the cost of Jeff bezos is new yacht. It is three thirty second super bowl commercials in the United States. It's a fraction of the cost of Google just spent sending all of those billionaires to whatever Mediterranean island it is that they sent them to so for you and I think that's an unfathomable amount of money but it is possible Ospel to get that sort of money and that's exactly what we're what we're trying to do

Why Does America Use Fahrenheit Instead of Celsius?

Look at the world food food history science and culture tuned into food three sixty with new episodes every friday could listen and subscribe on apple podcasts iheartradio app or wherever you get your podcasts look to brain stuff production of iheartradio brain stuff lauren boban here. If you're an american you've ever ever had a conversation with someone from another country about the weather. You've probably been a little confused when he or she said the afternoon. Temperature is a nice twenty one degrees to to you that might sound like a chilly winter day but to them. It's a pleasantly warm springtime temperature. That's because virtually every other country throughout the world uses the celsius temperature scale part of the metric system which denotes the temperature at which water freezes as zero degrees and the temperature at which boils as one hundred degrees but the u._s. u._s. And a few other holdouts the cayman islands the bahamas believes in palo clinging to the fahrenheit scale in which water freezes at thirty two degrees and boils at two hundred and twelve twelve that means that the twenty one degrees celsius temperature that we previously mentioned is the equivalent of a balmy seventy degrees fahrenheit in the united states. The persistence of fahrenheit is one of those puzzling american idiosyncrasies like how the u._s. uses the word soccer to describe what the rest of the planet calls football so why is it that the u._s. Us uses a different temperature scale and why doesn't it switch to be consistent with the rest of the world. There doesn't seem to be a logical answer except perhaps inertia americans generally. I don't really seem to distrust the metric system. A twenty fifteen poll found that just twenty one percent of the public favoured converting to metric measures while sixty four percent were opposed it might make more sense of fahrenheit was old school in celsius with some modern upstart a sort of the new coq of temperature but in reality they were created only about two decades apart part fahrenheit was created by its namesake. A german scientist named daniel gabriel fahrenheit who in the early seventeen hundreds was the first known person design alcohol and mercury thermometers that we're both precise and consistent so that any of his instruments would register the same temperature reading in a given place at a given moment thanks to his working skill in managing glass when fahrenheit started out the key thing he was interested in was coming up with the same temperature reading all the time not comparing temperatures of different things or different times of day but when he presented a paper on his system for measuring temperature to the royal society of london in seventeen twenty four he apparently realized that he had come up with the standard temperature scale as well. We spoke with don hilfiger a research meteorologist to colorado state university's cooperative institute for research in the atmosphere and and also president of the u._s. Metric association a group that advocates conversion to the metric system he explained basically the fahrenheit scale was devised a zero as the coldest oldest temperature for a mix of ice and salt water and the upper end was thought to be body temperature approximately ninety six degrees fahrenheit making a scale that could be progressively divided by two do this resulted in the freezing melting temperature being thirty two degrees fahrenheit not very useful number. The boiling temperature for water was then set at two twelve again not not a very useful number the temperature's one hundred and eighty degrees apart again a multiple of two nevertheless the system apparently sounded pretty good to officials officials of the british empire who adopted fahrenheit as their standard temperature scale which is how eventually became established in the american colonies. Well meanwhile though in seventeen forty forty two a swedish astronomer named anders celsius came up with a less unwieldy system based on multiples of ten in which there was precisely a one hundred degree difference between the freezing and boiling temperatures of water at sea level the neat one hundred degrees symmetry of the celsius scale made it a natural fit for the metric system which was formerly developed by the french in the late seventeen eighteen hundreds but the english speaking world nevertheless clung stubbornly to its preference for awkward units such as the pound in the inch and fahrenheit went along for the ride but finally in nineteen sixty one the u._k. Met office then called the u._k. Meteorological office switched teasing celsius to describe temperatures in weather forecasts in order to be consistent with other european countries. Most of the rest of the world soon followed suit with the notable exception of the u._s. Or the national weather service still publishes temperature data atta in fahrenheit. Even though its own staff long ago switched celsius hilter explained the n._w._s. Catering to the public by reporting in degrees fahrenheit whereas whereas much of their operations such as forecast models used degrees celsius and automated weather observations the temperatures recorded in celsius as well should we choose to metric chicken weather reports the fahrenheit layer. That's now added for the u._s. Public could be removed. We also spoke via email with jay hendrix who heads the u._s. National institute standards and technologies thermodynamic meteorology group he points out that the fahrenheit scale does have one significant advantage quote. It has more degrees over the range range of ambient temperatures that are typical for most people. This means that there's a finer grain temperature difference between seventy degrees fahrenheit and seventy one degrees fahrenheit then there is between twenty one degrees celsius twenty two degrees celsius since a human can tell the difference of one degree fahrenheit. This scale is more precise for the human experience on the other hand though the advantage goes away. If a fractional temperature in celsius used hendrix explained for example the equivalent celsius temperature for seventy and seventy ninety one fahrenheit are equivalent to twenty one point one and twenty one point seven degrees celsius.

Study: Fossil fuels will be necessary in cold winters
"Anew big picture. I tell us what this study in applied energy measured. This is a study that looked at heating transitions from fuels lake fossil fuels, like natural gas and propane to 'electricity with the hope that when they electrically becomes a renewable electricity makes we would decarbonised our heating, and we were able to through the sustainable, healthy cities, network rain together researchers from Columbia University, which, which led the study, my own group from the university of Minnesota, our colleagues from Colorado state university, who provided data about Fort Collins and Florida State University that had. Dade on Tallahassee. So it was a fascinating comparison of full, very different cities to see what, how can we decarbonised heating and cooling? And I looked at some of the numbers in the study, they're quite interesting. What did you find about the optimal energy mix for states like Minnesota to be both climate-friendly and reliable. So this is very interesting. So the study compared moving from heating as I said, which is now by combustion, so we bun, natural gas furnaces, and the hot air is, basically transmitted throughout the house, and that's the predominant way we he doubled ings. And this would switch to a heat bump, which basically takes air from outside and increases temperature and circulates and this. Electrically driven heat pump. We looked at two technologies one as an air source heat, bump rich draws air. The other is. Ground source heat, bump, which taps into your ground temperature with stays about fifty five to sixty degrees Fahrenheit and can be used both for heating in winter and for cooling in summer, and then we said, if we were to move to electrically driven heating and cooling. And if that electricity could be obtained from around us regionally through solar and wind, what is the, the variability of solar, and win that matches the patterns of demand. So it's really how do you match the supply with demand what we found was in our region. The patterns don't match the optimum availability of solar, and wind, just because I mean, even in day to day, you know, we need heat when it's late at night on us and shining. And if you also look at the monthly availability of boat wind and soda, it wasn't as good a match as it was in the other cities. So this is just how the city's demand and the supply of wind and solar. Around, you are weather and climate system works up here. Yeah. So what we found was even the best case you could get about seventy percent penetration of this mix of wind and solar, which for us is more towards wind and less solar. So the numbers were interesting when you combine this twelve hour storage, which will get to in a minute renewable, energy, penetration could reach eighty percent of New York City, seventy percent in Minneapolis, eighty three percent in Tallahassee and sixty nine percent in Fort Collins. So could we say that for your purposes here that means that seventy percent of power through, renewables is a practical, upper limit in Minnesota? So that's what this study is finding if we were to look at just the heating, so heating and cooling. And we also looked at round source heat bumps with thirty six hours of storage for heating and you could go up a little bit to seventy four. Percents. And the study basically says that has a slightly extra higher cost, but ground source heat pump might give you other aspects of reliability. So there's a, you know, we lay out that argument is that technology here today. Yes. Grandmas. Hit bump is here, and there are rebates offered four grandsons. He here's a quote from the study, it says the study found that the use of fossil fuels would still be needed to meet peak demand in cold climates, like Minneapolis and Fort Collins, this is because renewable energy cannot be produced at the rate needed to meet demand during the coldest month. So in that scenario is the rest of that likely natural gas and nuclear power so that these great questions. So it could be natural gas. We could also be thinking cities like Saint Paul and Minneapolis, which already have district energy systems. This could be a wonderful way of thinking about growth in our region. And how to have that growth, be more. Impact so that you can have shed heating and those district energy systems can be flex fuel as you already know. And so they could use biomass, I think waste to energy options would be fantastic, because they

She also had a lot of questions for the board members. I wanted to know that they took their land grant mission. Seriously. I wanted to be an institution that was leaked, but not elitist. I think that I'm very down to earth and pragmatic, and I wanted to be a place that really where everyone that works there where the kind of people that were will roll their sleeves up and get work done and McConnell says no work is more important than making sure the door to see us. You is wide open where all those students who otherwise might not go to school who are so smart, and who really need to be at CS, Hugh. We want them there.
