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including covid nineteen continued to proliferate and the trump administration in denying scientific reality has rescinded approximately one hundred environmental regulations that i discussed with sabin centers.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.
Jennifer Lawrence Confronts Anderson Cooper
"Morning everyone are you ready for some day leave? Just out today. So Morgan and I are joined again by Kisha Knight Polio. Actress a mother and you probably know her from house of pain and the cosby show. Thank you for joining us again and we are. Coordinated, in our Maulvi Pinky we are. Show and here we go. All right. Have you guys been missing Jennifer Lawrence because I definitely have we haven't seen her much recently, but she is back. She hasn't changed a bit. She still holds nothing back. In fact, she's talking about that infamous fall at the Oscars and why is set off of nasty little battle between her and Anderson Cooper listen to what Jennifer said on Heather McMahon's absolutely not podcast. I'm sorry but interesting Coober I saw him on. CNN. Lee. Three days later saying like what she'd obviously the ball and it was so devastated this horrific humiliation to me that like took away like I don't know ever have a chance to give a speech that again I saw him at a Christmas party and I let him know my friend told me that they was. But he apologized and I think I think we're good friends now. Do you think I wanted to fall getting Oscar but I remember when I led with was have you ever tried to walk upstairs in a ball gown? Right. So then how do you know like I with that? He apologized. Oh my gosh. Okay. I gotta go straight. Ahead some pesky reporters. To write stories sometimes, it's so weird. I haven't been in therapy about it for years now anyway, what was the question? is you see this particular person which I know loves you so much Is and you got to run into him or her at a party. What would you WanNa do would you talk to her? Would you say something? Oh my God I feel like I've envisioned this interaction first of all shot to Heather McMahon because I love her she is hilarious hilarious. I am obsessed with her so I'm happy for her that she got J. Lo on her podcast I feel like. Jay Jay said Jay Lop. I said. On kidding. I wouldn't mess up but. I will say I've had visions of maybe approaching certain people that write things and I think it really depends on the alcohol consumption. Cooper I right. I would go to Anderson Cooper because he's a respectable journalist, he made a nasty remark. You know you're getting an apology out of him but some of these other bitches are a little nuts. So I don't know I don't WanNa fuel anymore fire. So it depends it depends one hundred percent i. think that's a very good point you have to know who you're dealing with because if it's somebody who really doesn't like you and you get that five, a day could very easily turn the story around and write a whole other article saying crazy Morgan or crazy. Kisha. Came up in screen that man apart. But the other thing they if they're already writing crazy thing, they can write it regardless you scream are not. So. That's also true. I would say you've got to follow your gut and I completely agree with more again it depends on how many drinks of the consumed evening, how you're going to approach because you know sometimes yeah. You know there's certain like the GENITA- Crown, it may go let. Me Go left. It also depends on who's with you right. If my husband was with me see, my husband gets much more fired up than I do and I know you might find that surprising but he would be the one that would literally do me to say something I think you should say something you should call that did out and. I'm usually the one that's like, no, no, no. No let's just let it calm down. But if I'm getting like talked up into it, then I might yeah, pay south. Yeah versus if I have someone that's like, it's not worth the babe just to let's just go over here I'll be like. All right. You GotTa have your backup backup. Yeah. You got to have the right height man. If you're wanting to do it, it's got to be someone that's GonNa go up with you and have your back no matter what comes out of your mouth but. It's also good in these situations with somebody who's not necessarily your friend to be as composed as possible but I think when you're so heated already. Interaction, never goes as well as you want it to. and. All. Thank you. Scream at them. Yeah. I'm GonNa, say real quick. I think also even better way to handle this have a good woman someone who could do your dirty work for you. So you don't have to be the one that goes says us that this Lella you can have them do it and then your hands clean. One hundred percent yeah you need the right best e with you I like that okay. Moving out of channing tatum. So sad news I think channing Tatum Jessie j broke up again Jesse just posted this video drinking and dancing with the caption single live in a pandemic. That's how you get there strap. We talk about that. A source tells US Jesse and channing broke up months ago because they realize they're just better off as friends now they've brought up and gone back together multiple times at what point. Do you say this is finally do you think this is finally for these two I? I'm. Not Down here, you know I mean. Go ahead. No, you I mean I just think listen like you know it's supposed to be sort of like a new relationship is supposed to be fun. It's supposed to be easy and it might not last forever. But if it's supposed to be the fun easy relationship and you've already broken up four times in between that time, it just seems like clearly there's something here that is not connecting you to something is not working out. So just like leave it alone there's no reason for these to attack broken up three times like. In my yeah. At this point in life, you know my motto is. You know it's like spoiled milk. You don't put it back in the refrigerator. and. Come back and think it's going to be something other and foiled. On because clearly, it was gonNA work by now. Exactly Keach. Have you ever gone through this where you broke out was somebody got back together the whole thing I think that's something that probably when you're younger and you Kinda keep getting things to try and when you fall in love with the ones possibility I think as you get older and you've done it and you've learned that lesson, you realize you know okay you know what? This isn't working for me. It is. Okay. We don't have to make our. Yeah. I luckily, you said Fall in love with their possibility men is that true? Amir Young? You're falling in love half the time with just what you think. They're GONNA be your. Number set and then you realize that potential here and I. Think also when you're younger, you're more willing to be in a relationship that might not be perfect because you don't skip factor in time as much. But I think as you get older, you're like I don't have the time to waste on something that's really too difficult. You don't have the energy either

"Have lasting relationships as a result of it data. Excuse me I'd like to say also something huge was stolen from these women. This woman would have had a career building her career. She'd be Acting Today. She would be known to us and we would admire her work. Barbara Bowman if you look at her pictures as a child she was gorgeous she was world class. She had a chance at a career. The Weinstein victims. These girls had careers. The things that were stolen by these two individuals in particular are very very large and eat internal and other cosby survivor was also guest or on the cosby. Show talk twice and she was sexually assaulted by Bill Cosby in the studios. So which you would like to answer this question. If you could ask Cosby one question today what would it be not a thing? I wouldn't talk to him if my life time. Same better things to do. I have to say to that man nothing. I wouldn't ask him anything I know who he is he does deserve would have no answer for me. Well I actually want to follow up because you talked about justice and I wanNA come back to that because there was something said about remorse and I think you know to take to to kind of like not necessarily think about remorse into kind of put the ball in the survivors court. Finding peace is really really important and I think if you're sitting waiting for somebody to apologize show. Remorse have remorse. That may never come in. So I think at a certain point when you're if you want to have your own peace of mind from survivors standpoint. It's probably the best to have to forgive. Get support and find peace with that. 'cause I think you're going to be kind of grasping at straws and struggling. Always wanting that apology in and always defining your life excite him right well so it's kind of like to take that into the power back in not necessarily looking for remorse or an apology. It doesn't it doesn't matter their remorse is is maybe better for the perpetrators lifer Karma but it doesn't matter like you can still thrive in. You're not going to get into that power anymore tackling. I think of the rebuke that was issued to Elizabeth Warren. When she talked to long still she persisted. And I think of all of you and how remarkably you have persisted in all of this and all of you survivors out here in the audience and I'll I'll wrap up with Nikki and ask you what's next for us. What more will we hear about bill? Cosby? Have we heard the last of Bill Cosby from you for me. Oh well we'll have to see what happens. I mean still would hope we could do some kind of Docu series. I think there's been no real definitive story on Bill Cosby jet from the survivors. Points of view. I think what the one thing that podcast showed is how powerful these survivor stories are when people hear them they believe them We got to tell their stories. At length in the podcast. Where other shows have just done dribs and drabs and pieces here and there? But you hear these women tell their stories at length and it's very powerful and when people hear that they believe it. I mean the podcast has done extremely well so I just hope that we could get it to a large audience because cosby still controls. The microphone a lot. You know he does anything and it makes news and their stores. We saw with the remarks just from his spokesman about Harvey Weinstein Right. And he says he's never going to express remorse because he did nothing wrong. And it's consensual and he's gets headlines every time he says something like that and I just think there needs to be some balance out there because as I say like everybody thinks they basis their opinion on this case on emotion. Not Facts you know. And so I think once people have read my book or listen to the PODCAST. They believe it and they don't want to their cosby supporters. Who are writing comments going? I didn't believe these women when they came forward but now now I believe them but I would encourage people to seek out facts to instead of just basing their decisions on emotions so you should follow the chasing Cosby podcast on Apple. You should follow and foundation when it comes online and read your women. We need therapy and they need support and they need help otherwise what happened to them will affect them for the rest of their lives. Yeah and and their families yes. It's down collateral damage absolutely. Andrew's going say. Yeah and I really think with where we're going. I think we're we're we're getting somewhere and I think to bring technology up to date with with this moment. I I think I think it's going to transform a lot of how survivors access have instant access. Which today as you know? We live in an APP world and to be able to literally download an APP and start in each conversation with the lawyers pretty powerful game changer. Safe APP so let's thank first of all we'll get the audience the survivors the L. A. Times staff Kate Kelton or a paintings out in the lobby but mostly this extraordinary panel tonight so enlightening filling I for joining us and we sell next need at the parole hearing..

"I was spent four and the reason I know that is. I looked in the mirror and saw what was happening and so that's why I didn't forget it. I saw what was happening to me. And it wasn't good when that deposition email. I was shocked and to raise their news. Come on now I want to ask Lily I though because about a third of the victims the survivors were women lack black because there are more who are Asian one up and we've seen it even recently with when obituary written of Kobe Bryant when Gayle King asked about his death and the sexual assault accusations she got threatened because she was accused of bringing down a powerful black man. The same thing happened here with the cosby case right. Can you talk about that? And how the pressure kind of pressure that you saw and felt for saying what you said. You're talking about Snoop Dogg. Yes right. Who is mother eventually told him to back off and an ambassador. Susan Rice said. You'd Better Watch out because you're coming after an army and That's what bill cosby finally realized that it's an Army of women who've come up and spoke out against him but absolutely as a black woman and we carry an extra burden we're accused by our black community and particularly black men is being co conspirators of this justice system that disproportionately incarcerates black men. And that's totally absurd Jewel Allison are cosby. Survivors wrote a couple of wonderful articles about this. She said it's not about race is about rape Did you get the same kind of personal vitriolic? Do I owed still using the present tense. I have been attacked physically in person by strangers. I'm very sad to say this. A majority of the people who do attack me for having spoken out against the beloved bill cosby are black men and it's very painful. It's extremely painful. Yeah I get attacked a Nikki. Was this a surprise element when you were starting to your reporting this because this again was maybe sort of new. Yeah I mean it was. I didn't expect it to turn on race because Bill Cosby is not your typical African American. Defendant he had seven private criminal tourneys at his second trial. I've done stories that have freed African American men who wrongfully convicted and to a one they had public defenders who are overwhelmed and didn't do their jobs in this case is not about race. It's about power wealth and privilege and how that shielded him from justice for four decades so it did surprise me because I think it's absurd and it's an insult to the African American defendants who are wrongfully accused and wrongfully incarcerated. And it is. It is astonishingly. He still tries to pull that and to raise for you to come into this. After you know your years of suffering in silence and say one thing remarkable and stuck it struck me as it came to me was how many of the women who were survivors actually told their friends their parents contemporaneously. This wasn't something that came up out of whole claw twenty years later and the fact that they did confide in people made it so much more powerful and their stories. I would think more credible but theresa. How did you come to terms with not only what happened to you but how you decided to tell your story well? When my incident happened it was in the seventies in times. Were totally different. There wasn't even a word date rape person that you know Ray. There was no no. None of those words were available and times were so different so even though. I told my mother later I told my sister she told me. I better not tau because she worked at the Hilton Hotel and she would lose her job and she also said don't tell because they find people dead in the desert all the time so there were fears about what might happen to you if you came forward and they were very real because at the same time they were finding young girls in the desert So years went by and when I heard Andrea story I I wanted to tell. I was angry that this man was still doing this and I had to live my whole life. He seeing those books. America's Dad watching that show. My son even watched the cosby show that everybody loved that one for kids picture pages and I remember hearing that now. I didn't make him turn it off because I knew this was something I just had. The live with was a secret and so it it was just the way it was for women and so by the time I saw Andrea Story. I was really angry about what happens to us and I wanted to tell and I called up the police department and faxed in a paper told what happened but then we know it. It'd get buried again. He was able to bay area and he buried it for nine more years. So after I tried to tell again and it was buried. I had to just try to forget about it. Which was what I was trying to do. And what we all did for all of our lives by the time two thousand fourteen came out. I don't think I had cable or whatever but I had some Internet and I was on vacation of working or something and I came back and I heard her. It was out again and Mike. Oh my God. I've got hurry up and tell before it disappears again. 'cause I thought they'll just bury it again and this time it stuck and it was almost like a miracle because by by the time I gave an interview I just I just spilled everything I could think about the people that were interviewing me. Because I thought it's my only chance and then it's probably going to disappear again. And meanwhile that's a whole lifetime of differences in the way the world works for women and now we are totally in a different place in the world. And it's not like we're Victorian Valentino and sunny wells and maybe I am a little later than them were but it's a different world now and we have to push forward changing but it does cause you a lot of Changing of your thought process. Now we can speak before was like we all had duct tape banner mouth and we didn't matter so I say we matter now I'm GonNa get things happened. That really almost serendipitous changed. The course of this case one of them was the accidental release of Bill Cosby's deposition and you wonder how far the case would have gone. Had that not happened. That was a thunderclap. Wasn't it right well? The AP had petitioned in God and was trying to get unsealed some oceans from Andreas case. Where excerpts of the deposition were attached and even what was? That was pretty astonishing. It was the admission about drugging giving leads to therese. But yes then. The court reporter thought the whole deposition have been released. A couple of news organizations got copies of it and that's what really made it explode. Because here's Mr. He done an album in the early seventies. Kids say no to drugs. You know he had been you know. I don't drink because I took two sips of a beer. I teams and I didn't like the loss of control so I don't drink. He was Mr squeaky clean and here. He is admitting to give and drugs to women he wanted to have. Sex with so yeah. It was astonishing. And that's would help. Spur the reopening of injury case which. I was completely shocked by of all the things I thought would come out of the all fifty other women coming forward. By this point Andrea case being reopened was not something I thought was going to happen. I just didn't I didn't astonishing. And your case Andrew squeaked squeaked under the statute of limitations for Yes it did when it was reopened in In Twenty Six getting twenty lily. The other thing that seemed to move this forward was the fact that paradoxically there were two men who had something to say about this and one of them attainable. Burs was a black comedian. Who went on stage was talking about Bill Cosby as a rapist? And then there was a reporter in the audience and all of a sudden it got new and maybe a little more serious attention. Yeah that's striking and I just think it lends to the fact that at the core of all of this is a real visceral hatred for women and devalue is devaluation of our voices and it did. It did take a man for the floodgates of our voices to open. So that's just like another marker of Misogyny. Yeah well God bless him opening the gates. Whoever it is it opened the gates. They did it for us and they did well and we're glad to be here. The other one was a ninety year. Old Man named Frank. Scotty who'd worked with Bill Cosby. Who had money orders? That cosby had had draft. I guess to pay young women over the years and this ninety year old guy who was like many of the survivors accused of trying to get his fifteen minutes of fame by realized he was trying to clear his conscience. These money orders had his name on them not cosby's but cosby had him do that for years. And William Morris was doing the same thing and Andrea was offered an educational trust after. She went to police which she did. Not Take him up on and I certainly don't blame any woman who did take an educational trust from him but I wonder how many there are out there. Who took them and bought their silence. Louis so often. We see that changes in society happened because of things that occur to famous people because they become the benchmark that if it happens to X. This becomes possible so many women who've survived this hard on themselves were critical of themselves. Damage themselves away blaming themselves and isolating themselves. Tamra talk about. Do you think we're at the point or near the point where society will stop penalizing women for this because so many women's career suffered so many blocks put in their way in some cases. I gathered from the podcast. Mr.
"cosby" Discussed on Chasing Cosby
"Been accused of sexual drugging and sexually assaulting a woman in Pennsylvania and at first. I was astounded because I started to try to counter. How old is he now and I thought really at his age. He's still doing that. And then I had a sense of satisfaction thinking. Well they'll go get him when Tamara Green Call me and I found out she was going. Give me an exclusive interview being the second accuser to come forward against bill cosby. I was in shock after my story about Tamara. Green on the cover of the Daily News. We got inundated with phone calls. People trying to reach our next Morris since you component you've taken a lot of heat and some things in your back and come out a dui and some of the things with the with the Bar Association and Bill Cosby has also come out and said that you're lying. I want to read a statement if I go. This is from Bill. Cosby's lawyer responding to the allegations. It says quote. Miss Green is peddling a highly defamatory fictional story about something. She claims occurred with Mr Cosby three decades ago. We further says her claims are false fabricated and defamatory. Mr Cosby denies her assertions. What you say to that. Well what do you expect him to say? He really has no choice but to say that tomorrow tomorrow. Can you pull the mic up and toward your little bit? You can lift it up a little. You just move it just swing it around on the boom arm. There we go. Hello we can lift it up a little there. We are testing. Okay thank you. Thanks for being. I guess I was watching this before. When before we came on stage I was so shocked to see the word groped and I thought groped really reporter colleague of Mindset in the fifties and sixties as wouldn't even use the word raped and print. They said harm and so. The idea of these euphemisms that let people slide away or a little bit shocking. So so you're you're encounter with. Bill Cosby was a long time ago. But when you were describing that moment there that you saw in a sense the keystone being pulled away that the stories were starting to come out your responses were. I'm sure very complex. And how would you characterize those will for many years? I had compartmentalized the information. The entire story of what had happened to me intact. It away someplace very very deep. It's funny because now that the battle is over and things come out and I speak a bit. It's much more emotional now than it was then then it was a battle that was a fight and you stand up and you do it but when I speak of it now in danger of go into pieces you know but I thought yeah well finally. They're going to get him. I hadn't thought that he was actually continuing to do it. I thought that I was the only one in each of us. Thought we were the only one and it was a big surprise when when things broke loose but when I heard that Andrea had been attacked and I thought as I said on the tape I. They're going to get him now. Somebody will get him. And that's how he has coming. And then I started hearing the district attorney in Pennsylvania do this. Da Speak for. They're not gonNA charger. They're not going to charge him. I could tell the attenuation of the information. The sort of distance that he put between himself not relating and telling people that his father Bruce cancers father was bill cosby's real estate agent sold the House that he lived in they were socially connected. There's a fabric of society in that county and I just I kind of lost it. I started calling. I called Bruce Castor. I called the assistant. Da I called the watch captain on the police force. I called the crime lab. I called the detector taught. I called the mayor thing. No I was on the phone. I was on the phone and nobody finally recent. What's her last name reaffirm? Who was his assistant? Who has since become a judge and who in fact reopened the case later she actually called me back and interviewed me and I hope and I believe that that interview with me led her to believe because she had prosecuted a lot of sex sexual tatt cases that that that I was believed by her and that that was an influence later when she reopened the case. And did you get in touch? With some of the other survivors. Did you share stories and and kind of reinforce your own conviction that now you see makes his surprise. I'm sorry to interrupt you pat. What surprises people as I did not meet Andrea Constand until the day? That Bill Cosby was sentenced in fourteen years of time that it took to put him in jail. We never met. I never spoke to her. I never spoke to anybody else. Briefly Barbara Bowman. I spoke to Barbara once. Our civil suit began. We were together but we never met and I cautioned people outright and publicly to say. Let us not cross pollinate. Our stories let our stories be our stories because otherwise people are going to say well. We just mixed it up. Put it all together and created something out of whole cloth and that wasn't true. This is why you became a lawyer. You think now I remember. I became allergic to have a big mouth and I'm not qualified to serve anybody. I would go what you want to eat what. Now don't be ridiculous. I flew for TWA as a stewardess for about an hour. I was fired for so I didn't have a lot of time choices for a second career so actually law school was great. It's like reading trashy magazines it's gossip its each case is only about ten pages long and any book and it's every horrible thing anybody's ever done to anybody else in fourteen areas of law so it was like really. I was like and then there's a quiz at the end. They call it the state learn like that's what. I did when when when you step forward when you made the decision to be there in public in Andrew's case. That decision was made for her. But did you have the opportunity to make that decision yourself whether or not you would step forward and be identified with this and take part. Well I did when I went on my telephone rampage. I I ended up calling Andrea's lawyers because I still felt the penny finally dropped and I thought well what I call somebody who's actually involved so I called her lawyers and Dolores said to me. Will you speak publicly and I said sure you know not having a clue what was going to happen and then they she said to me this fateful thing she said. We'll use your name and I went. Oh sure what did I know? Oh my so you know what you're in for. Well you know I did. I'd had other sort of fat cases and I'd been in the papers quoted but I was pretty much full of myself. I was at the top of my legal game. I was a good trial. Or if I don't say so myself and I was not publicly shy and you can tell. I'm not trembling because I'm nervous. I Have Parkinson's but and so I get a little jittery but it doesn't hurt not to worry you know. I just came forward so I contacted. Nikki. I believe and the two of US had this long interview and then my face was on the cover of this magazine and she sent it to me. Hard copy in the mail in an envelope went opened the envelope. I tell you oh like the whole thing is my face and I thought Oh dear might have gotten a little carried away for for you because you said you compartmentalized this. Did you ever have any expectation that he would be called to account but he would come to know and I said to him? After the event sometime I bumped into him because I was not able to reach him because I did my telephone rampage then too but nobody would take my call and I said to him. You know I'm going to tell every person who will hold still long enough what you did to me. I'm going to say it every day all the time and it's funny because in the November before I actually spoke out I had sold a pickup truck to a fella and he was stuck in the cab with me as we're driving around and I told him this story. God I have to buy this check at this woman out of here you know and people. Nobody wanted to believe it and I grew up overseas. My parents were civilians attached to the military. So I didn't have the same kind of I wasn't imbued with this sort of cosby mythology at all. I hadn't really seen his show. I didn't know a lot about him. Though when I was in college I spy was hot stuff. We watch man from uncle. So that's how we did that. And so I didn't have the same kind of hesitation about him to me he was a villain and I didn't want this person to be in the world by herself up against that so good. She's a much better person than I am. She she is she's very she's wonderful and she's pure and she was just. GonNa take a beating because I've been a lawyer for quite a while by then I thought. Oh my God they're gonNa kill her and I just decided I had to. I just had to step up and I did. I don't regret it. If I had it to do again. I would do it again. Let's bring on a couple of other people and I look at a couple of videos. Owed Them I. Louis Bernard and then Therese Sarah Knees. Bill Cosby was using the race car to try to solicit pity for him more than a third of us. Bill cosby survivors are black women and we have an extra burden in speaking out against him because the black public attacks us for having brought the black man down for having spoil the legacy that's BS. You know bill cosby destroyed his own legacy his hand and there was too large white pills.

"Coalitions and rape crisis centers in counselors. Good well before we bring our our next guest on. I want to ask Nikki about how you perceive we're talking about this foundation the new resources. The new attitudes that are available. How is this changing culture? How's it moving the needle on understanding this kind of criminal? This kind of offence. Oh well I don't think it's a coincidence. That the month a month after bill cosby was convicted Harvey Weinstein was criminally charged. They had been toying with that case for months. And there were these detectives who had made these disparaging comments about the victims. They had to teach prosecutors of a sudden. Bill Cosby gets convicted. And the next month Harvey Weinstein is charged. And I think that cosby survivors were the precursors to the whole metoo movement. Early enough credit for that. Maybe because as I said maybe it's because none of the Harvey Weinstein. Accusers were all celebrities. They're all household names. And maybe that's the reason and maybe it's because you know in Bill Cosby's case. He was a celebrity himself. And people. Just don't WanNa Hollywood. Had A lot to do with enabling him. For many many years there are a lot of people who knew what he was doing and Hollywood and did nothing and I don't think that they want to acknowledge their own culpability in this. So it's easier for people to believe that a Harvey Weinstein did something because nobody heard of him before. The scandal broke and a lot of people knew who bill cosby was and a lot of people knew what? Bill Cosby was doing. So I still think there's a lot of protecting of him going on in Hollywood. So let's bring on next guest but before she comes on stage. I want you to watch video. This is Tamara Green. Who was also survivor of these predations? And this is how she reacted. When she heard the news about Andrea I heard about address constants allegations against Bill Cosby when I was standing in my kitchen. Ready to go for the start of my day and I heard a news.

"Mean she was able to rumors times. Look right at the jury and talk with the jury share with jury that she suffered at the hands of Mr Hostile and how Mr Cosby put her in. This no-win position and why she ultimately they could no longer work hours next Andrea Constand takes the stand and this was the testimony everyone had been waiting for and the courtroom so quiet you can hear a pin drop. Andreas forty four years old. Now her hair short and she's all business. Uh she no longer has her long red curls or the carefree smile from the photo widely circulated of her back in two thousand five by had one job in. My job was to tell the truth. Despite feeling uncomfortable feeling overwhelmed feeling all the stress in the courtroom and the jury the in the journalists. I did the best that I could and got up. There cosby swivels. His chair to face her. The comedian recipes Chen on the palm of his hand hand thoughtful expression on his face. I tried to be as relaxed as possible. But it's very uncomfortable for any person who's a sexual assault victim in a trial to get up and recount and rehash everything that happened and to be face to face with the person in who wrong you in the court. The lawyers it was not a comfortable scenario. Andrea begins her story how she first needs Cosby How he starts reaching out to help the temple women's basketball team slowly? They build a mentor ship. A Friendship Andrea recounts one visit at his Elkins Park home in which cosby places a hand on her thigh. Another visit a few months later Andrea says cosby touch her again. This time reaching toward the Zipper of her hands. She pushes his hand away and says I'm not here for that. I don't want that cosby tells it differently. Here's what he says in his deposition position. I don't hear her say anything and I don't feel her saying anything so I continue and I go into the area. That is somewhere between permission and rejection I am not stopped. No meant no. You have a right to say whether you want. Somebody's hand off. Your I mean this is a conversation that is really starting into happen. In in a very big way now then Andrea walks the jury through the details of the January.

Board of trustees than an Andrea was working for the women's basketball team. She tried to keep things Professional Andrea testifies that one day desperate for answers she drives to his house and ask the comedian. The and what did you give me two which cosby replies. I thought you had an orgasm didn't you. I did not injury says after the Andrea finishes our story. Cosby's attorney cross examined her for seven hours. Why did you hire a lawyer before reporting the assault to the police? Why did you call cosby fifty three times after the assault? Why did you go to cosby shows with your parents after the assault and on and on and on here's prosecutor Kristen? Federal Andre did a tremendous job on this and she maintained her composure. And you always hope that when you close out a case that your victim or witness that they're honesty shines through all of those attacks injury. MOM takes the witness stand next. It's an emotional testimony testimony and at one point John Constand breaks into tears still plays a key piece of evidence for the jury. The recorded. Phone call of Jonah Questioning cosby about what happened that night in January two thousand four cosby doesn't react. I tried to just concentrate on what I had to say.

Old Man there named Frank Scott Eastern with gray hair enlarge silver frame glasses in his room home. The first thing Chelsea notices is all the photographs of frank and Bill Cosby. There was one that was of him and bill. That was obviously a portrait trick of the two that had been professionally done. And they're you know smiling standing close to each other and right below that there was another picture of Franken in cooking a big Italian meal for Bill Cosby and a lot of people. There was another Picture of Cosby Black White and bill cosby had signed signed the photograph to Frank. Scotty my friend just starts firing off her questions. Why do you WanNa talk about bill cosby?

I Bet Mr Cosby the coffee shop in Greenwich Village. And this isn't about nineteen sixty five. You didn't have any money so I gave him up with Chaney which coffee that he loves cosby would often come. I'm in say hello to Frank. How're you and frank would remember him for?

Would I wanNA talk about talk about money orders that I have that sent the women all United States and Europe. Why would every every sending some women two thousand dollars suspicious? It's almost as if he knew when the time was right he was going to maybe shared this story three and I think as the accusations mounted there was this sort of pressure upon him that he felt inside of him that he had to come forward. I I felt dirty. I just felt you know. He's not the person I thought he was. The article runs in the New York. Daily News and NBC. News Interview Scotty.

I didn't know what I was going to do with them but I felt like they might become useful at some Scotty dies five months after the story runs. Perhaps a little more peace since unburdening himself in response to Scotties accusations Cosby's attorneys tell NBC News.

When I got a copy of the Philadelphia Daily News and saw the whole front page was my face I can tell you gave gave me a start? The phone began to ring off the hook. And I did give permission for people to reach me because you know in for a penny in in for a pound. Whoever asked me for an interview during that period of time I gave them an interview Here's tomorrow on the Greta van. Susteren show him from Dayton Ohio. Hi was sent an email Tomorrow maybe maybe you can ask those force it says Greta Tamar Green sounds credible. But please ask her how she could grab a lamp to throw. If for motor skills were so impaired. How do you answer that tomorrow? You put your arm out and you grab the first thing that you can reach. Because that's the only thing you can do the following morning morning. Tomorrow's interview with Matt Lauer on the Today Show is one of America's most respected entertainers and philanthropist. Hiding dark secret or is he a convenient target in a game of he said she said I had an interview with Matt. Lauer who was very imperious about the whole thing on Wednesday talked to green and asked her why she waited thirty years. Here's why didn't you call the police after the medication wore off while you know because First of all I was very ill the reason I took the MED medication. Because I have some vile flew a week later. What about days later? Well let me tell you the thing is and I understand this about the current victim victim. The first thing you feel is stupid and then you feel that no one will believe you. This is the Great Bill Cosby. I know what happened. And he knows what happened. And and if I am the only other victims besides the president victim. That's too too many then that evening. She's on the Abrams report on. MSNBC you know women did not just go running off to the police station when they were wide little fair enough but it has been a great move thirty years. I mean you've had thirty years of opportunities since then to to come forward I wouldn't say so I mean the girl who's being charged in Philadelphia waited eleven months and everybody's sticking up there no saying that she waited too long. Everybody has an idea about how you're supposed to react to what you're supposed to do what you woulda Coulda Shoulda done. But they've never been there they haven't been molested Daytona mm-hmm next up tomorrow on the big story on Fox News. I want to read a statement from Bill. COSBY's lawyer responding to the allegations that says quote. Ms Screen screen is peddling a highly defamatory fictional story about something she claims occurred with Mr Cosby three decades ago. Further says her claims are false fabricated undefended Matori. Mr Cosby denies her assertions. What do you say to that? Well what do you expect him to say. Tamara defends her story again. And again. Tomorrow since you've come forward you've taken a lot of heat Some things in your back or not come out of Dui and some of the things with the Bar Association and you know. I expected that you know my my life is not perfect but my life is pretty clean. Victims are always blamed. Dr Barbara is it is a forensic psychiatrist in Pennsylvania. There blamed for their appearance for their behavior. Their blamed for their subsequent behavior there blamed for for their behavior. Prior to the sexual assault which is a powerful disincentive for anybody to come forward with sexual assault kind. Tomorrow wasn't the only one making the rounds. A news and talk shows joining me. Now is Philadelphia Daily News reporter Nicole Watson Siegen Siegen and who interviewed the second woman to come forward and accuse bill cosby. I gladly took the press opportunities to defend my reporting and to defend Tamara. A story and of course Andrea Story because team is basically you know they seem to be chastising the paper for going forward with the story even after they denied it. What do you make of that? Typical strong handed tactics by them. They want to try to clamp down on anything that might possibly put the people that the person they work for in a bad light. I mean there's a lot of intimidation going on frankly. One of the issues that kept coming up was whether or not tomorrow would be allowed to testify should be charged with entry of sexual assault. While I think certainly when someone comes out and makes an allegation that is a similar m o to the president allegation any prosecutors cuter. Antennas go up but make no mistake about this. As everyone on the panel knows this having happened thirty years ago was in no way admissible in a criminal court Aw that's even the issue. Go ahead Nicole. I want to correct something that your guests just said. It is possibly admissible in Pennsylvania core this woman's testimony money today and now a judge to rule on this but it has been ruled admissible in other cases. First of all you is she an attorney. Meanwhile cosby's attorney Marty Singer kept calling trying to get me to back off the story and threatening to sue the daily news producers told. Let me Cosby's team was trying to keep me from appearing on TV to talk about my reporting. This is one. I learned the phrase trading up which is giving up one story to get a better one. I keep digging to see what I can find and in the days and weeks ahead I will learn the assaults reported by Tamara Green and Andrea Constand. We're just the tip of the iceberg following in the footsteps of Andrian Tamara. Twelve more women come forward with stories connecting in Cosby to drugs and assault. They're willing to testify in a criminal trial and eventually become Jane does one through twelve and a civil suit Andrea would later file against cosby. One of them is Becky Cooper. I was drugged and assaulted by bill. Cosby in one thousand nine hundred eighty two. Becky is a twenty twenty-eight-year-old massage therapist at Tennyson Health Club in Las Vegas. That's where she needs. Bill Cosby I've saw just about every day. He was very friendly in. We became friends. I thought he was building trust. One day he came up to me and said that he had a hurt shoulder from playing tennis so oh I told him that I could work on him. So let's go out by the pool. Just a co Ed area and And he said no no no come to my show get a bite to eat and then you can work on me after the show Becky's already seen cosby show but thanks okay. Why not so? She watches him perform at the Las Vegas Hilton. That Friday night then goes to dinner with him at the hotel. Restaurant cosby leads becky to his regular booth. He said I'll get you a drink and without even ordering a drink. One of his guys. It came down and said it in front of me and it was a shot of stolley. Schnee I remember because Stolley Sny had just gotten popular becky takes one. SIP cosby encourages her to drink the shot all at once so she does and He said okay. We've got to go and I said we haven't eaten dinner yet. That and he said we don't have time now and when I stood up I could feel that something was wrong.
