Automation could make ports more efficient and EKO friendly, but with fewer people from American public media, this is marketplace tech, I'm Amy Choi in from Ali would. More consumer goods come into the port of Los Angeles than any other US port a plan to use more unmanned, electric vehicles would bring major changes to the port and its surrounding economy, union workers are pushing back hard against automation at a protest this spring, workers held signs. It said robots don't pay taxes, and where will American labor work. But poor donor say that automated technology will cut costs in L A and help California meet its ambitious goals to reduce greenhouse gases today. The port is noisy and polluted. A massive system of ships cranes and more than one thousand seven hundred trucks passing through a day. Most of them diesel automation could change that picture. Romi Varghese reporter for Bloomberg news tells us what an automated port of Los Angeles could look like it becomes almost silent when you when you see some of these automated vehicles in action under the plan that's being considered for the port of alleged. A for this one terminal, which is called peer for hundred which is the biggest shipping terminal in North America. By the way, der plan is to have this automated. Straddle carried is one big piece of equipment would basically do the job of three machines. How a lot of nation of the port effect the local economy. I, I know for the port of L A the local community is a is a community of L A called San Pedro. And it's a very blue collar community that has really relied on the ports for its economy, and honestly, deports in general are responsible for much of the economic activity in southern California. It's, it's a huge driver of jobs, both indirect, indirect jobs. I talked to a bar owner and about half her patrons are, are longshoremen, and she's worried. Well, if are fewer of them on going to have to cut back my employee hours. I'm not going to be able to hire bands to calm for nights of the week. And defaults who are promoting automation, are saying, look, we need to say, we need to stay competitive, we are losing market, share to east coast and Gulf Coast ports, because they are more nimble, and our ports are in, in the our ports in, in California just more expensive. So you have this micro aspect to this the micro impact, and then the macro impact, you know, your reporting revealed that there are forty four automated or semi automated ports around the world. But there are only five in the US it seems that that slow have we been slower to adopt this technology? American ports have definitely been slower to adopt this technology and a lot has to do with the power of local unions. And in Asia, a lot of these ports are, are newer, so they're using the most up to date technology, but generally American ports have been lagging. Ng in automation because of the concerns of how this affects local jobs, that was Romi Varghese reporter at Bloomberg news. She notes that LA mayor aarc are said he continues to lead talks between the union and the port. And now for some related links the need to go green in LA Israel public radio station KCRW reported that the Los Angeles and Long Beach metropolitan area was ranked the worst in the nation for ozone pollution for the nineteenth time by the American lung association. Some of the causes cars cars cars, and the ports on the automation, tip the Wall Street Journal, had an article about a new study by MacKenzie saying automation will hit both male and female Labor's equally. It's not just men working in manufacturing who are at risk of losing their jobs. But up to one hundred million women losing their jobs globally by twenty thirty primarily in clerical in customer service, gangs. And while both men and women may lose jobs and equal pay stewed automation women will be less likely to have the opportunity to get the training required for new jobs. And finally, we might not actually be. Ready for all of this automation? We're talking about urban planning scholars surveyed hundred twenty cities in America about their preparedness for self driving cars and only a tiny fraction of them have comprehensive plans for autonomous vehicles. One of them Los Angeles. It has an urban mobility in a digital age plan. That includes ideas about dedicated lanes for Altana, Mus cars municipal fleets of robotic buses, and shuttles and vehicle data sharing relationships, so that the city can manage traffic flow.

"Live from NPR news in Washington. I'm Shay Stevens.

So begins David Willis, wills new book on the impact of climate change from there. He presents the scope of global warming challenge to human civilization from feeding fifty percent more people with half the amount of productive land to whole cities that will be unlivable in the summer. He joins us this forum. Our to talk about the book and about why he thinks the science shows it's time for climate panic and welcome David Willis wolves. Thank you. Thank you for having me. Please have you, and we'll get into the grim picture that you paint here and get into the details of it as much as we can. But we'll talk with you initially about something else. And that is the phenomenon of people doing nothing because it's ingrained in them that they can't really make a difference. I mean, you're talking about this in the book, and you line it up with what you call a learn posture of powerlessness, and I think that's very real many people. Let's talk about. Yeah. You know, I think basically at every level of human behavior, we have these sort of emotional, psychological and intellectual reflect. X's that are pushing us away from looking squarely at the science and responding to as it demands to be responded to so, you know, the level of individuals we have we compartmentalize we live in denial. We are motivated by our own self interest, and quite narrow ways and are kind of reluctant to take big steps of the kinds that are necessary. But that's also true at the level of our politics. And I think it's also the level true. The level of geopolitics basically over the last thirty years as we've really come to know this threat, deeply and understand just how big it is. We've found ways to avoid responding to it at anything like the scale. That's demanded. And that's an enormous problem. You see it in the science itself where you know, we've now burned more carbon from fossil fuels in the last thirty years than we've burned the entire than we released in the entire history of humanity before and that's a period of time that is since the UN established. It's big climate change. Body since Al Gore published his first book on warming, which means even though we've quote, unquote, knowing about this issue understood its impacts understood it does scale of the threat, we've really responded, not at all. And in fact, continues to burn more and more fossil fuel every year produce more and more carbon every year such that, you know, whereas thirty years ago, the planet's climate was relatively stable scientists were worried in the medium and long-term, but for the for the time being considered relatively stable. We're now really at what the scientists call the threshold of catastrophe, and we do not have much more time to adjust. I'm thirty six years old, and my lifetime contains this entire story that to me is an incredible incredible facts, this is happening much faster than anyone I think really appreciates and certainly than I appreciate it until quite recently. Well, appreciate what you're doing in your book because you really sending people off to the notion that. Intense. Fear emotional really in panic is appropriate and a lot of people don't want to necessarily hear that. There is a statistic that struck my well struck me eighteen percent back in two thousand nine. We're alarmed about global warming climate change is gone up to twenty nine percent. But you still have and you really get at the heart of how important this is politically because you still have people making individual choices and consumer consumption, you say, well, that's trivial. Really compared to what we have to do. We have to mobilize. Yeah. You know, when when you understand that we're not just the the challenge is not just reducing emissions. It's zeroing out emissions. The UN says that we need to globally completely eliminate our carbon emissions by twenty fifty that gives a whole new perspective to the question of whose job it is to do this work because you and I could never fly again, we could never get on an airplane. Again, we could never eat red meat again. If everyone we know in San Francisco, if everyone we knew all of the United States of America never got on the plane again. And never ate red. Megan still there would be hundreds of millions of people. Elsewhere in the world who are doing that. And so what we need is a kind of response that makes behaviors like those that do produce carbon carbon free. So in the case of air travel. We need some kind of research and development into electric planes or carbon-neutral jet fuel in the case of red meat. You know, there's small scale studies showing that if you feed cows seaweed it were there their methane emissions by ninety five or ninety nine percent. If we could legislate that all cattle farmers have to do that. Maybe we wouldn't have to eat less red meat at all. But certainly the scale of the problem suggest that the solutions have to come through policy and political action. The choices of individual consumers. Just simply don't add up to what we need to do. And I think that's that's one of the really, you know, sort of unfortunate aspects of our contemporary, political and market culture. Forgive me. It's kind of massive complacency in many ways, I mean when you talk about the decision to get action and do things legislate part of this complacency, and I think you point to send your vote comes from the notion of mother or others who will take care of this necessarily get out there in the streets of London like they're doing. Now, you know, women going to breast of the streets things, you know, in terms of just trying to raise attention put spotlight on this. Why think for a long time? Yeah. People were both complacent and reluctant to really take the kind of action that was necessary. Even if they sort of understood an intellectual level that some dramatic action is necessary. But when I look at those protests, I'm really heartened, I see enormous amounts. More energy on this issue. Then I saw even when I started writing about this subject just two or three years ago and the numbers and the polling numbers reflected at you mention one about concern, but you know, seventy three percent of Americans. Now believe climate change is real and happening that numbers fifteen percent since two thousand fifteen it's eight percent since last year. And I think those those polls are moving really all around the world and the intensity of the commitment of at least some people is growing dramatically too. Which is quite heartening. I think a few years ago. You would ask me if you'd really asked any person who thought about climate, activism, and advocacy. They would've said our politics is really inert on this issue. And that's a problem. But we're seeing now actually an enormous amount of movement. UK is maybe the most dramatic example with extinction or billion, and you know, on the one hand, you think well, what does the protest do what does it lead to but parliament just declared a climate emergency yesterday and a body of scientists they asked to put together a. Plan just came out with a plan to make the UK carbon zero carbon by twenty fifty which is really dramatic. I mean, we'll see if they put that plan into action. But I'm things do seem to moving much more quickly than we had anticipated. How do you explain though, you bring this up? The whole phenomenon went up in Washington. Green stay we had a Blue Wave and everything and yet they voted down carbon tax plan. In fact, the governor Washington now running the presidential candidate says the only thing matters climate change. That's the only thing I'm running on. And yet they voted it down. I mean, how do we explain why think for a long time? It was understood generally, by communists, and that that knowledge sort of trickle down to the public that action on climate change is going to be expensive. But it was going to require some kind of upfront investment that would mean forgoing growth, and that it would impose a burden on the average individual that if we were going to be really doing what we could to reduce emissions that would mean all of us would have to be suffering in some way. And I think for too long the campaigns against initiatives like the carbon tax that was voted down in Washington were conducted in that spirit. And we're not the people on the other side of the world climate activists of the world and. Just the liberals. Were reluctant or unable to make the case on the basis of comparative cost which is to say, okay may impose some something of a burden..

They've migrated to Snapchat Instagram and about twenty million of them are over on house party a live video app where people drop in on each other and chat or leave video messages, and they can hang out with up to eight people at a time. I know the name house party sounds like kids doing I don't even want to know what on video, but actually co founder and chief operating officers Seamus Donnie, told me she wants house party to be for real personal, connections, and empathy literally no filters, you friend, a group of people ahead of time. And when you open the app, it actually notifies them that you're there, and you're ready to have a conversation. And so it sort of takes the emotional hurdles out of actually video chatting with somebody. Why video there obviously, inherent risks and interacting live on video. Not to mention, you know, just. Bandwith and appearance issues. You know, talk to us about the value of video as a communication tool. That's at the heart of the empathy and how we do that you say appearance like I want people to be proud of. You know, I woke up this way. Right. And if the tool is just about you, and the people you care about you shouldn't need filters. Right. You shouldn't be trying to project yourself as content. You should just be there to have like affirmation from a qualitative perspective, not validation by numbers. And I really hope that like we have a generation grows up knowing the right reaction to sadness, not just the right emoji. So talk to me about how that's reflected in the product design. Like, I assume that you're getting rid of things like likes and little hearts that pop up the screen and things that feel sort of addictive and engaging as opposed to. Antic? Well, we're not getting rid of it. We just never even built it. There's no feed it's been built by designed to promote the human connection and just showing up. We just want it to be as easy as showing up and being able to connect with people you care about. And I I see that with my kids. You are daily habit is during dinnertime, so my family's in Alabama. My husband's family's in Virginia. My best friends are in Chicago. And we'll just open it up. And it's whoever's there, but it's a predetermined group of people that I've decided that I fronted and my son now has like a very meaningful. My daughter have a very meaningful online relationship with these people. And that's not something you can do a synchronised Li it's not something that you can do in a news feed. And I'm not saying that those things shouldn't exist. There's world for them. I just think that we can all do a better job of time.

And. Store that into batteries. That's that'll be located down near the engine spaces and use those big solar panels as movable sales to adjust to the angle for maximum wind assist is going to be a real exciting.
