The U.S. could manufacture batteries, but its a dirty business

"The key to a cleaner. Energy future is batteries. Regular listeners will know. I'm a little obsessed with this topic. And now i'm not alone last week. Gm confirmed plans for new battery production. Plant somewhere in the us and last month president biden or a review of the domestic supply chain for large capacity batteries right now. Most of the materials for making batteries come from other countries of those metals including lithium and cobalt can be found here in the us. Chris bury is a strategic metals consultant and president of house mountain partners a lot of people when they hear lithium cobalt two rare earth elements. They think that these resources are rare. And they're actually not. I mean you could actually extract from seawater if you had the right technology and the incentive price was high enough so you know you really need three factors to line up to make this happen in the united states number one is need ample capital number. Two is you need political. Will and the third factor is time. Let's those apart a little bit so the capital in some ways that's happening. Does there need to be commensurate. Investment from the united states is it all private. capital could carbon tax. Play into this. I think the majority of the capital that is going to build out the supply chain Is gonna come from the capital markets themselves. I think the government will really be there to backstop some of these strategic projects. But i would not expect the us government whether or not it's specific departments like energy or defense to match the scale of capital in the private markets and then what are the political hurdles to establishing like a new manufacturing industry in the united states. That seems like sort of a no brainer. Actually the challenge has always been. How do we build these minds okay. Mining is quite frankly. It's been a dirty word in the united states for a long time. You have that sort of nimby view where it's great to have access to the raw materials rather than they come from the drc or from china or areas south america. But you know just will mind it elsewhere and we'll import it here in the united states and you know my view has always been that security of supply of the raw material. Is the most important piece of this supply chain. it's interesting though because mining has just been a dirty word. It's been a dirty practice. And so i wonder could the prospect of doing that domestically has to clean up. That industry writ large. Yeah i think. That's a great point. And i completely agree. You know one of the things. I think we really learned from cova and from the us. China trade war was it exposed weaknesses in existing supply chains. One of which was again really not sure about mining practices in countries like china and use them as an example. Because there's sort of the eight hundred pound gorilla when you talk about these supply chains but you know the more of that supply chain that we can bring home and put kind of fresh set of eyes on it. you can kinda rest assured us a consumer that you're utilizing western technology to mine and refine these materials. You know it may be a little bit more expensive. Obviously because of labor costs in particular. But again i think that's probably the price that we're going to pay to make sure that there is full accountability along the supply chain which is what's consumers and governments alike are all looking for right now. If the third aspect is time there is research happening now into creating different types of batteries like do you think that if we put in a big effort to get supply chains here in plus years. We could have moved onto other materials then lithium by then Four automotive capabilities. I don't think anything is going to take the place of lithium ion for the next fifteen years and there is a fair amount of rnd in particular going. Into what would i what i would call next generation lithium ion. But i wouldn't think you'd see really quantum leaps in lithium ion before thousand twenty five. Maybe twenty twenty seven at the earliest. So you know the time is now to build out the infrastructure. Do you think it's an happen. How do you feel about this moment. I think i think you know if we want to use a baseball analogy. Were sort of at the second inning here. I think that what's going to happen over the next. Just this decade. Is i think mobility in particular is going to be completely transformed. I think that the lithium ion battery is going to get much cheaper in terms of dollars per kilowatt hour. That's man that's how you value these batteries. But i think it's going to get a lot cheaper much more quickly than people believe. And that's why you know. The size of the prizes is so enormous. that's why you see countries like china. We want to have twenty five percent of our overall vehicle sales by two thousand twenty five be electric. That's why you see the european union focusing on what they're calling the green new deal to really build out their own self sufficient supply chain again. This is a climate change issue but it's also an enormous issue for job creation also increasing the tax base. So it's it's a. It's a rare opportunity where i think regardless of where you are on the political spectrum. You know maybe you're a hawk and you're worried about national security. You're more of a dove and you're focused on climate change. Everybody can benefit from this. So i think that it's just really an enormous opportunity out over the next five to seven years. Chris bury is a strategic metals consultant and president of house mountain partners in january. The federal government approved a large lithium mining operation in nevada. Critics say the approval process was fast tracked at the expense of environmental concerns and now for some related links. There's more reading at marketplace tech or about this lithium mine in nevada in two thousand eighteen. The federal government fast track approval for lithium mining permits. This mine has been portrayed as a way to speed economic recovery. During the pandemic nearby native american tribes hope it will provide jobs on a neighboring reservation. But as chris bury noted everyone is worried about the environmental impact. There are also concerns in nevada about jobs not being distributed to nearby communities and the speed of the approval process which limited public on the mind. So yeah even. Our transition to a greener economy comes with some serious trade-offs and if we don't bring mining to the us that just means outsourcing it to places where the mining practices are not only dirty but carry pretty well documented human rights abuses with them to like child labor allegations and yet this supply chain is the key to transitioning away from fossil fuels. The us is poised to become a big supplier and demand is only going up. But as we mentioned perhaps bringing more mining production the us could shine a light on how these materials are mind and for some improvements.

IRC President On The Humanitarian Crises To Watch In 2021

"The International Rescue Committee publishes its emergency watch listed cheer to try to alert the world to urgent humanitarian crises. David Miliband is the IRS sees president and, of course, former foreign secretary of the United Kingdom. David Thank you so much for being with us. Good morning school. Where would you urge the world to look and to and to help in the year ahead? Well, I'll watch list has looked at 85 different indicators of humanitarian need. We've identified 20 countries that represent only 10% off the world's population, but 85% of the humanitarian need in the world. The U. N says that about 235 million people depend on humanitarian aid to survive on these countries represent about 200 million off those people led by Ah, Yemen. Afghanistan. And, as you say it's driven by this triple threat off conflict, the biggest driver off poverty and extreme poverty around the world a climate stress but also co vered The report shows that women in particular highly affected by these crises help us understand 70% of the women who of the population in humanitarian need our women and girls. There are multiple inequalities they face before disaster strikes. All of the evidence that we have from our years of experience as well as our impact evaluations. Studies shows that those inequalities are magnified in emergency situations. Not just the women and girls go hungry. But there's more violence against women and girls, more early marriage in emergency situations, and I think we face a real challenge here because on the one hand 200 million people sounds like an absolute mountain to climb. On the other hand, when you say look There are 20 countries that constitute over 80% of this need and they need a different kind of politics, some of it internal but also external diplomacy. They need economic help. Because although there's been a rallying to enter to need on a national level in which countries the international donor community has not stepped up for the poorest countries in the world, and they need a different policy offer. Because in areas like malnutrition, the current systems aren't working and need to be changed. David, What do you say and your time in politics. I think he used to confronting this argument, but it sharpened this year. What do you say to those people, particularly democracies? Who say Look, I I think that's terrible. But look at the problems we have in our own country right now, and we're spending Trillions to try and look after our own citizens Festival. You say it's a good point. You recognize the point. Then you say charity should begin at home, but it shouldn't end at home. That's the critical argument that we're making for a fraction off the investment that's being made on the domestic front in countries like the U. S or European countries, richer countries for a fraction of that investment. There is enormous suffering that can be avoided around the world. But there's also a strategic case. What we know about humanitarian need around the world today is that if it's left untended Produces political instability, but it's also contagious. It effects neighboring countries. The crisis in Venezuela is not only affecting Venezuela is affecting Columbia is affecting the rest of Latin America that the crisis in Syria is not just affecting Syria is affecting Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq But also Europe were a connected world. I mean, we should emphasize that in the year of covert that has been demonstrated, and so my plea to people would be to say yes, focus on the problems that exist in America. But don't confine yourself to that. Because unless you think Globally as well as locally. We're not going to address the problems that confront us today. Yeah, when I read your report, and we just got a few seconds left. I couldn't help but notice when you mentioned Afghanistan, Syria, the DRC. The world often just looks away from those places. It does. And the purpose of our watch list is partly for internal management at the International Rescue Committee, so that were our 13,000. Employees around the world have focused on the right things, but it's also a call and a warning to the international community. Neglect of diplomacy, the disengagement of from diplomacy, the rise of impunity in war zones around the world. The killing of civilians and aid workers in conflict is a scar on the world that needs to be addressed. That's what we're saying needs to happen to make 2021 better than 2020.

"REPORTER ONIS AOL Kerry. Restart today here in. Africa more than fifty women in the Democratic Republic of the Congo have accused international aid workers of sexual abuse. The women reported multiple incidents of abuse that happened during the twenty eighteen ebola crisis. He told me to come to his hotel and Phil illegal if. We had heard splint thinks about this four winless. The men worked for organizations like the world, Health Organization and Doctors Without Borders five women said, their abusers worked for the Christian nonprofit World Vision the women said multiple men had coerced them into intimate acts in exchange for a job or fire them. When they refused some reported, the abuse happened as recently as March. The World Health Organization promised a full investigation and serious consequences for abusers. The allegations of sexual exploitation and abuse by aid workers are deeply heartache and heartbreaking. World Vision also launched an investigation into the allegations. Next we go to. Asia. Plantations in Malaysia and Indonesia a facing accusations of human rights abuses that's according to a recent report by US investigators.

The industry has been built on a backbone of modern slavery and it's being built on the backbone of these companies being our to violate human rights norms, left right and centre with no consequence. As a result US costume officials said they will block all palm oil products from one of Malaysia's largest producers. US manufacturers use palm oil in more than half of all packaged consumable products everything from cosmetics to animal feed. Indonesia and Malaysia of the world two largest producers. Tequila.

"The share of women in the House and Senate has increased over time. But it's still well below the share of women in the US population. And if you dig deeper. Congress looks even less representatives women of color make up eighteen percent of the US population but before the two thousand eighteen midterms the accounted for just seven percent of Congress and LGBT women. Make up about two point five percent of the US population but there are only two openly lgbt women in Congress that's less than one percent even with the recent wins by women candidates in the two thousand eighteen midterms. There's still a long way to go before. They're fully represented. I look at someone like just send our during the prime minister in New Zealand. I the way that she dealt with the terrorist attack on her country. Yeah the way that she wouldn't name the terrorists that was you know. She's amazing. Amazing. We will not talk about their names and then also the way that she's dealing with this crisis she is incredibly humble and that and just real like you really feel like she's telling you the truth this authenticity. Just I think is is one of her great strengths and I think just very clear. Nobody panicked. This is what we're going to do and we're going to do better for. I think she's really good also at hope and inspiration which people need people made in times like best. They need to know. We're all in this together and we're going to get back and we can do this and done things like this before we've done things that have been harder than before. Did you see that? The princess in Sweden actually took an online nursing class and entered into the frontline fighting this pandemic. It's the most amazing thing I was like. This is brilliant. She's a princess and she was like Nope. I'm going to take an online class and I'm going to really make a difference and it's just spectacular. The majority of frontline healthcare workers around the world. Are Women. Yeah actually in China. I think the numbers like ninety percent methods. And then there's also that stat that the country is that have been least hit as far as numbers go with Kobe. Nineteen have women leadership. Yeah so I'm wondering if you could shed a little light on how the challenges women face around the globe are maybe similar or different. Well certainly you've been a huge champion around Combating Violence Against Women and sexual assault and harassment. And that is in my mind. The biggest challenge women face I. Yeah globally there is no country no community no religion no social economic background of women anywhere on Earth who are not affected by gender based violence. That's just full stop. That is the only issue that seems to get worse. Not Better over time right. We're going to get more. Women elected to political office. More women are going to start and grow business. People are going to see. Oh Wow this is great for the economy okay. Yes let's keep funding. You can see steps forward on many of these issues but on violence against women. I mean the harder hit. Humanity is the deeper violence against women growth. Right now with this crisis in China triple. They had triple the cases really at the epicenter of Code. They had triple A. Cases of domestic violence in the height. They're of the virus and that is not a winston. It is a fact that when people lose their jobs and anxiety and stress is running high. That will be my own skin for that. There will be domestic violence. Bounce GonNa Children as well and then of course you add to that. Being locked down with an abuser or higher. Yeah it's horrifying. Yeah so to me. I mean that's that is the biggest issue and of course it takes different forms in different places you know in the DRC have rape as a weapon of war and other countries ravaged by war like Syria or Iraq in places like Afghanistan. You have girls being hung just because they're girls girls being burned with acid late certainly by strangers by partners by boyfriends acquaintances college. Campus Violence Sexual violence child marriage. Honor Crimes Cream genital mutilation. It takes on a different look in different places but we run. Something called an emergency assistance. Fund FOR EXTREME FORMS OF GENDER based violence is called Voices Against Violence Fund. And we will open up the fund and literally the cases that it's small bits of money that we can get out the door within twenty four to forty eight hours to quickly help a woman get back on her feet. Nadia Murad. Who is the is eating woman who escaped Isis in Iraq? Acting twenty fourteen. She was actually one of the first people to receive one of these. Just very quick fusions of financial support to help her family and she get healthcare relocation. You know her brothers had been killed. Most of her family was killed. The bill back something and I'm allowed to tell her story because she tells her story and obviously winning a Nobel peace prize a number of years later for suing Isis. But the fun that we continue to run at a number of cases is just through the roof and we you know quite frankly. We need more money to fund. Yeah believe me I would rather be preventing these Reno. And why should we were throwing money at a problem rather than trying to get it a solution but we're doing both let me ask you this. The numbers are just staggering. But do the numbers go down when women have power. I'm thinking about just even in the United States and domestic violence and violence against women and we have some really incredible women that are fighting in Congress and Senate and yet these numbers are still mind blowing. You know we fight so hard to get a seat at the table and then I'm wondering. Do you see changes within the community. Do you see that numbers go down. What is the tangible evidence of that? This is this is shifting or changing. Well certainly I think when the economy is strong right when other things are stable. That is certainly better. But that shouldn't have to be the case. Things be better never should be that humanity. I think we're not challenges. Honestly with violence against women is what I would call. One of the women leaders will work with called the silent. Majority silent majority is the majority of men who are good and who believed that bounced. Women should never stand but they don't do anything about it I well. I don't know anybody. You know one that. Maybe they don't know enough about it. They don't think there's a place for them to be part of the fight or minimal. And I think it's about. How do we engage those men to recognize that? This is a human problem and that they're part of the solution they have to be part of citation otherwise things will never change. Yeah so I think you see grace forward when Powerful men or influential men get it and they don't just get it and like a check the box way but they they really get it on a fundamental level and every decision that they make it somewhere in the calculus of how they're making those decisions and that's a big piece queer on an awards program here called the voices of solidarity and it's really about honoring those great guys who are in the fight. I love that and often risking their livelihood. We all met all around the world. There's some great. Ceo's and leaders that we've honored but there are also different young guys. I don't know if you're familiar with the Nail Polish undercover Keller's. No that into drank and it will turn a color. If you drink has been Mufi right yes and so these guys came up with this formula basically so that the nail Polish we turn a color if it was and now there's you just young college guys that they had a personal experience with a friend who had been drugged and raped in college and they decided to do something about it. It's kind of engaging men at different levels in doing good. I think that can make a huge difference.

CDC director calls WHO "a great partner" after Trump cuts funding

"Nations around the world are reacting with alarm after president trump announced a halt to the side finding that the U. S. sends to the World Health Organization health experts are warning that the lack of funds could jeopardize global efforts to stop the pandemic speaking on CBS this morning with anchor Anthony Mason Dr Robert Redfield of the CDC was asked if he views cutting off funding to the WHL as dangerous you know I just gonna say the WHO's band and a long standing partner for CDC we work together and to fight health crisis all around the world we continue to do that we're working side by side now in the Congo in the in in the DRC with trying to bring the ball up rates on and were working obviously together on this coronavirus I think it's important at this point that we leave the analysis of what could have been done better and what what what what what maybe we did well so once we get through this and get through the the outbreak we get it over I think that Dr Redfield if if you cut off funding if you cut off funding to the W. H. O. and this is a significant amount of their funding in the middle of a pandemic what's the impact internationally took to fighting this virus again I'm gonna come back to W. H.

How COVID-19 disease models shape shutdowns

"First step today. We're GONNA check in with contributing correspondent Hi Cooper Schmidt. He's been reporting on Corona virus for months and just a note. Were recording this on Friday march. Twenty Seventh Haikai. He wrote a story this week with international news editor Martin answering about the order of modeling as the current virus sweeps around the globe. Why did you focus on forecasting disease? Spread forecast. Saw models have always played a role in the outbreaks that have written about buying. I think potential outbreak there have been more important than ever have been and the reason is fairly simple. A lot of the outbreaks that we've had in the past have been with pathogens that we know a little bit about that have been around for decades sometimes sometimes we have vaccines or we have drugs against them with. Kovac nineteen or with SASCO Baotou. We don't have anything we don't have any pharmaceutical interventions basically. So what we're seeing at the moment is the whole world trying to apply non-pharmaceutical interventions which is lockdowns social guessing physical distancing as we should probably call it the handwashing hygiene and the models. Become extremely important. If you want to understand which of these measures are going to be most likely to have a big effect and when you need to implement them and how government policy in most countries has been shaped immensely by the models that that researchers have come up with and I think that makes these models extremely important and it puts a lot of pressure on the people doing these models to huge responsibility. This isn't cutting edge science per se. The models aren't new. The math isn't tricky but getting the key. Variables can be really problematic. What important facts do we have? And what are we missing when we build these models? Well it depends a little bit on what question you want to answer. We have more or less nailed down some of the basic parameters of this virus. So how many people as every infected person in fact the how long does it take for an infection to run its course but at the same time of course there's stuff that we don't know for instance how many people have infections that has been from the start a huge question? We will only be able to answer that once we do big surveys with serology so looking for antibodies in people trying to understand how many people might have added infection but never were diagnosed cases so there are some some of these questions but of course if you're really modeling should close schools or should you advise a look down other things become immensely important as well for instance stuff like how. Many people are actually going to adhere to this advice. How long does it take for people to do this? Characteristics of the population exactly n and just very basic things like. How do people live together like if people stay in the household with two households looked like what context do households have in? Where do most of the contacts happen? Outside of households are kind of contact is actually. They'll contact that spreads the disease while of these things. Do go into these models and so there is a huge uncertainty and these models and I think one of the problems that both journalists have also politicians have. Is that when you read just the conclusions of model? It can suggest a lot more certainty. Then there is. I mean this is still your a fairly new disease that we don't know a lot about and there's a lot of other factors that are just as uncertain when you're modeling spread. Are there different models being used by different countries or different regions? Are these differences? A problem I don't think the difference is so much kind of model you're on. Most models are fairly consistent. I think the question is. What do you use the models for what you want to maximize their was this idea to try to find a middle way? You know at the moment we have to sell them up between issue like this virus spread. It is going to cause disease and death on a scale. That's just terrible on the other hand. It seems that what China did might curb the spread of the virus. It has done in China. But if you do that. You're basically locking down joe population for who knows how many months and tanking economy while he's doing it and causing a lot of knock on effects also terms of mental health and other things so both of those options seem kind of terrible and so some of the models were trying to find a middle ground. Joe. Is there a way to lower how much the virus spreads Joe make sure that it only spreads in that part of the population that less susceptible to equate calls severe disease and the Netherlands? Uk have kind of been the two examples where actually the the heads of state have gone out and said we are not trying to completely suppress this virus window. Trying to get case down zero. We think the better option is to let it spread a little bit and make sure that it doesn't spread so much that it overwhelms our capacity of the hospitals to to deal with cases what what about if a drug came out or a vaccine in people had died because they were part of a plan to expose the country slowly. You know that'd be terrible. There'd be a lot of life lost in you know. Is this something that can be accounted for and models use of the vaccine or discovery of a useful drug. Go exactly this. There are some things that just won't be in the models like if we do find a drug treatment that kind of reduces the risk of dying or when vaccine becomes available that can change the things I mean nobody will probably become available too late to really matter in the next year but certainly that might be drugs that we can find like available drugs can be re purposed that might lower the risk of dying from this that might lower the strain on hospitals and it depends a little bit on. How like you think that is how much you're willing to risk at this point. The other thing I just want to point out I mean if you do this you can model a lot and you can chart a very narrow path to an outcome that you want but when you're doing this in a landscape of so much uncertainty it's just an extremely risky proposition to say okay. We have one model here that says if we do exactly these things and if all goes according to plan then we might be able to avoid tests for fee and. I think that's where you've seen a lot of pushback from other scientists and both the UK and to a certain extent. The Netherlands seemed to have come closer to the approach that other European countries are using right. Which is to try to contain the virus as much as possible for as long as possible. Exactly let's turn to the possibility of a drug treatment for this outbreak. So you wrote this week with John Cohen. Another of our reporters who's been covering rotavirus wall-to-wall like you a story. On World Health Organization launching a global trial of drugs that might be effective against Cova Nineteen. And it's actually four drugs and their intention is to involve hospitals that are actively treating patients and testing. These drugs is this something that's been started already. Hopefully by the time the podcast comes out. Bullets started at the moment that giving up the hope was that they would have the first patients this week. I haven't checked in with them today but they might well announced in the press conference today. So it's pretty unprecedented. I mean we're in the middle of the global pandemic and we don't have any drugs and because it takes too long to develop new drugs. Probably they're just really looking at all the drugs that are available already. That might be repurpose. That might have some effect on covert nineteen. What drugs are they looking at? And how are they chosen the? Wto has a panel of experts. That have been looking at drugs that possibly could treat this Since January and kind of came up with this priority list and reach Leon who has deciliter which is an antiviral drug that was originally developed to treat a bowler and similar viruses had actually failed to do anything in a bullet was tested in the DRC during the carnival outbreak and didn't have any effect but there is some data from animal studies and from Cell Culture Studies that suggested might have an effect against will be too so that's kind of top of the list and some patients in the. Us have been treated with the frustation in snohomish county in Washington state was treated with a and does the any. Am that describes how he basically got better after a day of does. That's not evidence that this drug is working but people certainly have more hope that this might have an effect on some of the other drugs the second one on the list is an old combination drug against HIV called collateral. So that's two substances revere via the idea there is that this combination drug actually acts against approach of issues that the virus needs to to produce its proceeds. It might have the same effect in Saas Cova to we. Don't really know there's one study that was done in China where one hundred ninety nine people were treated either with this combination drug or just the standard of care and they didn't actually find significant difference in outcome but one of the problems that we have with of these drugs of course is the sickest patients are getting these drugs because the hospitals are overwhelmed. And they're mostly treating the rea- sick patients but of course it might already be too late to have a really good effect of these drugs when you give the bed late in the disease.

What's Your Opinion?

"What's your opinion? Hello this is Anthony J with an early sustainable futures report. It's Tuesday the twenty Munch Code Nineteen the current virus is in everybody's minds and increasingly affecting everybody's lives is the sustainable futures report relevant in these times. I need to know what you think. My opinion is that it is relevant because the climate crisis will still be with us after this viruses being defeated. Maybe Mao Tse. Maybe yes but one thing is certain on that is that we will have to rebuild our world when all this is over you may argue that how we rebuild it is a political issue and deny that both the corona virus and the climate emergency issues can be addressed and defeated only by international cooperation between governments last political someone once described the sustainable futures report as green but increasingly red. Let's not put labels on people's opinions. Let's look for pragmatic solutions to where we are. If you're not like what you perceive my politics you don't have to listen but I much prefer if you shed your views. Either in comments to the blog go direct to me at mail at Antony Dash Day. Don't come all we can discuss this online. Many of US forty feel powerless. Because the most we can do is simply to sit at home. What he is or indeed sitting at home without work on new experiences for many is going to be stressful. Thank goodness we have the Internet Social Media Web conferencing to give us some social interaction. I went to four meetings. Las Week without leaving my desk. I chatted with people in Germany South Africa on as well as in the UK. I'm sending out a conference invitation to all my patrons to take place this next Friday. The twenty seventh of March. Given that your in different time zones. I may propose to separate sessions. Surely this is an opportunity to get together. Decide what we can do together even if you can't take pot but a sitting with little to do take the opportunity to reflect on how the world will change once this is over and how you would like it to change on how we can achieve about change and so to this week's topic. This is what I intended to do. But it needs a lot more work so for the moment. This is just an overview. I said last time that the sustainable futures report has been too tightly focused on the wealthy west and so this time I was going to look at Africa. That's probably my biggest mistake. You could almost say that is no such place as Africa yeah. There is a continent called Africa. The world's second largest and second most populous continent offer Asia. We appear reveals that had extends to about thirteen point three million square kilometers which is pumped seven million square miles when it's midsummer in the north. It's midwinter in the south. It contains fifty four fully recognized sovereign states or countries eight territories and to de facto independent states with limited or no recognition. The continent is believed to hold ninety percent of the world's Kobylt ninety percent of its platinum fifty percent of its gold ninety eight percent of its chromium seventy percent of its tantalite. Sixty four percent of its manganese on one third of its uranium. The Democratic Republic of Congo has seventy percent of the world's Coltan a mineral used in the production of tons of 'em capacities addict devices. Such as cell phones the DRC also has more than thirty percents of the world's diamond reserves. Guinea is the world's largest exporter of bauxite and yet Africa's turtle knowing will gd pay remains behind that of the United States. China Japan Germany. The United Kingdom India and France as the growth in Africa has been driven mainly by services and not manufacturing or agriculture is being growth without jobs and without reduction in poverty levels in fact the food security crisis of two thousand and eight which took place on the heels of the global financial crisis pushed a hundred million people into food insecurity identity. Get sensible to ask. How does Climate Change Affect Africa? Africa is so diverse. I'M GONNA start with one country in follow up with others later. Nigeria which has the biggest population of any nation in Africa will be my first choice. But I'm going to defer that until after online discussion after we've agreed where. The sustainable futures report should go from here.

"I think it makes a lot of sense. Thank you checks out. So I know a lot of other people will wanna see some deeper validation than that. I don't know why. But I think they will. And you all at BP have been very good about opening books and putting all the code out there and explaining how you get to these things and you haven't done that yet. But I assume that is in the works. It is. And I, you know, there are sort of a couple of different ways to do this. And we keep as you can tell people's frustration. Keep trying to find a new mousetrap to build in that respect. So we've done a few things this time up front. We have created actually a sort of mini deserves leaderboard that converts DRC's opinion on these various events, like singles doubles triples into sort of deserved average deserved deserved Opie s we may regret doing that. But the point was. Elect people kinda see sort of what you know. And I think maybe during the season, we might actually just break it down into deserve singles deserve, doubles triples. Because that's actually what the is tracking. It's sort of re scoring each one of those events. And so one of our thoughts is, you know, rather than pretend that people really want to go and do linear algebra with us, which I put shirtless people don't wanna do if they do wanna do that with. They wanna know what it's thinking they wanna look they wanna kinda look inside its brain not not all the way in, but at least, you know, sort of the frontal area, and and just figure out why it doesn't like it and an answer such as that the metric doesn't buy your guys nine triples last year. This like five I think people find that sort of reassuring because it's like, oh, I didn't kind of see that those are kind of or you know, he was walking at such an incredibly high rate that he was given a little more credit for that. Because that was considered to really reflect a skill that he has oh, I get it. So that's one thing that we're doing is trying to sort of actually tell you what components. Seems to be impressed with and we're giving you the runs above and below average. Also, which is another way of sort of seeing the way it does that and then having done that. And then giving you the benchmarks for accurate predictive nece and reliability which hopefully tell you nothing else that it's it's been a job. Then next week. What I wanna do is start cleaning into the code and sort of walking people through the process because it is it is somewhat elaborate, we add to sort of create our own modeling context to make this work. And I think it will be interesting to people who really enjoy that sort of thing. Yeah. And so for the crunchy columnist who will write a column saying, no one can even calculate the stat. I mean that is true. I can't and very many people other than you can't. And even if you walk us through it, and you put your coat on get hub, or whatever I won't be able to replicate it. So to a certain extent, I'm trusting you which I do. But I guess I could see why someone might. Not if they don't know about your work, and they can't follow the validation that you'll be presenting. But I think to a certain extent we have to be comfortable with not being able to see completely transparently. Why a stat is saying something which is something I'm not completely comfortable with. I mean, if we're looking at batting average, it just reflects hits over a bets and sure some of those hits probably shouldn't have been hit..

"The Democratic Republic of Congo DRC is to hold elections in December. This is a two year lapse since president Joseph Kabila's mandate expired, the country is in the midst of a constitutional crisis this widespread insecurity in an ongoing humanitarian catastrophe optimists say the polls could possibly mean the first democratic transfer of power in the country. But if there's no legitimacy to the vote there could be further destabilization, which is looking increasingly likely freedom from torture has just published evidence of brutal and rampant torture by authorities in the DRC as punishment for engaging in legal, political and human rights activity. Well, I'm joined by Steve crucial who is the policy and advocacy director at freedom from torture on the line. He's one of the people behind the report a tool to silence torture to crush dissent, which is to be launched at Chatham house tonight. Steve what is in your report? And what does it mean? What it is. I think deeply shocking findings even for those who follow many of the terrible things. It'd be shopping in the Democratic Republic of Congo in post years. What was seeing is torture on democ scale? We're focusing here note so much on the conflict zones in the Eastwick clearly has been terrible terrible violence over the years environment continuing, but in contrast in that region, and above all is as you said reductions, it's punishment. She's not torture, it it simply tortures form of sadism. If you like basically, and is coaching one of the one of the survive, torture, survivors were south doing it. As a tool in order to silence, others torture. As a tool to silence we've seen. Gang. What we've seen rate of the rolling. Movin ninety percent of the women who were held raked wouldn't two thirds of the men were right. We see gang. We see range of other tortures, which is really if you like a full move encouraged mitchen sadism with I think, what's notably clearly absolute impunity, the sense of these people in authority the gods or the others who are holding these people in arbitrate attention feeling that they will never be punished for something absolutely needs to change who's been targeted are the victims politicians walks, particularly notable bound this is it on these people who ban put the head about the he's clearly intended to send a signal. So these are not launch scale is not the leaders. These people who become involved in some kind of civic engagement or human rights engagement or work. For women's rights. And sometimes for example, just simply putting on a T shirt, which carries the name of political opposition party. That is a reason to get picked up one phrase that was used again, and again, the torture survivors quotas, so routine torture in the tension says is sentenced perpetrators were two foot fission taking that tea or teaching them morning coffee. This is just a routine which all of them were facing. Now, we know that the DRC has suffered since the eighteen hundreds. I mean, king Leopold aside there's been huge conflict conflict there for years if we could just have a very brief recap of what's been going on. I mean, we know that the opposition. Now has has just a rejected a unity deal don's. Exactly. Right. As you say this goes back into the history of Congo goes Bank into colonial times, the most brutal of any of the colonial rose anywhere in Africa or the world, really.

"The country firstly we know that drc isn't exactly a best in of transparency when it comes to the corruption index but more importantly glencoe has been paying what many say is the drc risk premium on its share price because of the troubles that it's experienced in that country in nigeria the oil of assets that's glencoe is dealing with the we know that these being a lot of questionable issues that have arisen from working very closely with government officials similar stories come coming out of his way i think a lot of investors an endless that i've been speaking to saying that they not surprised that this is come to the full it just depends how deep the rot is if the is good to be rough that is found and of course the price tag if a fide then does emerge through any kind of findings down the line i think that's what people away waiting for and i think when you see the shape price coming under so much pressure it's indicative that people on not exactly basing on good news yeah huge blow for the company what stands out is that these accusations of money laundering go back to two thousand and seven as you mentioned over a decade it seems like it would be quite a time in quite a while for investigators to finally dig through all of these years yeah exactly i mean it's going to take a very long time and the question is how can glen co actually put this paperwork together we don't know if the department of justice is actually given them a time line i'm sure they have going to have to get the paperwork in order very quickly and i just have to say that looking at the initial public offering documents you know the paperwork that is kind of distributed to investors during the road show is actually a close in bay saying that blink clock call up rates in many different jurisdictions ninety commodities in fifty countries and it admits to say that they do up rate in countries that are known to be corrupt bribery is rife and they cannot always detect amy kind of unforgettable scrupulous transactions that might occur in these jurisdictions so i think that warning had come to invest from the unseats and the question is have they been implicated other implicated and what will the findings be down the line huge implications not only for shareholders but obviously for the one hundred forty six thousand employees that the company as well ellen joke oh thank you for joining us facebook shares fell more than two percent today after reports that the company is facing growing scrutiny from the us government over the cambridge analytica scandal samuel burke joins me from london samuel this is at a time when the company has been saying repeatedly that they are working on being fully transparent new report suggests otherwise however here's the problem with that whole transparency line beyond is that they only made people aware of this back in march but we knew that they were aware of this back in two thousand fifteen that is about three years let me just put this on the screen of all of the agencies that we now know have opened inquiries into facebook and it's a lot when you think about the fact that the f b i this acuity and exchange commission that's the group that's looking at the time line the federal trade commission and the department of justice here's the issue okay they didn't tell journalists like me until march but did they have a fiduciary obligation to their investors to tell them back in two thousand fifteen or at least in two thousand sixteen when it became obvious to the world that cambridge analytica was working with president trump's campaign shouldn't that have set some type of arm bell for them and that's the question that the going to be asking also when you look at the ftc what they're looking at here is whether facebook violated a previous agreement they had made with them in the early two thousand ten about consumer information these are really serious questions and facebook has been able to shrug off this whole scandal in terms of stock price after sucker burke testified really until today that's a big chunk of money lost lease market value for facebook and there may be gray areas as far as what they should and shouldn't have done and what their duties fiduciary duties were as well but given what they've gone through at least optically i'm not sure anybody would have been buys them to not be fully transparent at this.
