"david bernhardt" Discussed on Go West, Young Podcast

"It's one of those weeks when the Colorado weather goes from summer to winter in less than twenty four hours. Welcome to go, west young podcast, your show about America's parks and public lands. I'm Aaron Weiss at the center for western priorities in Denver on the show today. We are heading way up north to Alaska where a pair of court victories for conservation groups could provide the playbook for challenging the Trump administration over the next couple years. We will talk to intern from Earthjustice about what it all means. Plus, they call it the town too tough to die, but how did tombstone Arizona get its name will find out this week in western history. But first, let's do the news. Once again, the big stories are all about David Bernhardt. The acting secretary of the interior who could be confirmed as permanent secretary by the Senate as early as Wednesday. We have talked on this podcast about David Bernhardt secretive calendar practices before. Now, we are finally learning why he didn't want the puck. To know what he was up to as deputy secretary right before burn hearts confirmation hearing in the Senate interior finally released burn hearts actual daily schedule. What they released is vastly different from the public calendars. They had released for Bernhardt before we counted. More than two hundred significant discrepancies between these so-called daily cards that they just released and what had been public before roll-call counted at least two hundred sixty differences. So what was kept off of David Byrne hearts public calendars? Well, there's a listing for a meeting with Johnson goose who is the chairman of a group called Caesar that opposes the endangered species. Act. David Bernhardt was on the board of Caesar and represented the group in court despite that meeting showing up on two different versions of burn hearts calendar for that day and Sagoo signing into the interior department. That morning interior. Now says oh notes are he actually met with someone else? Not David Bernhardt. The list goes on. On and on meetings with Simic's, which is an energy company. That's part of the independent petroleum association of America. A meeting with fell oil, which is a member of the national ocean Industries Association Bernhardt represented both of those trade groups, but now interior says his ethics recusals don't apply in those cases. And they didn't explain why those meetings weren't on his public calendars in the transparent way before that CNN pointed to a coffee between Bernhardt and Ed manning. Manning is a lobbyist out of California who has spent years representing Westlands water district yet another of burn hearts clients interior claims that meeting didn't happen either. But did not say how it got unburnt hearts calendar in the first place. Now, the kicker is that these daily cards were being kept in a Google document that was overwritten at the end of each day, and we only know about them because of a source at interior who told us about them and then relegated hall. The chairman of the house natural resources committee had to ask interior for them. Mm specifically, and even these calendars that we do finally have are incomplete. Entire days are missing. So either interior wasn't saving burn hearts calendar. Like, they're required to or they're trying to hide something even worse than what they've already disclosed either way. It's not a good look and the hits keep on coming. So remember when David Bernhardt ordered the bureau of land management to go back to work during the government shutdown. So they could approve more oil drilling. Well, we now know that they approved two hundred sixty seven drilling permits during the shutdown including four in the Ponti national grasslands near Denver those permits in the grasslands went to noble, energy and noble energy. Is you guessed it, a former client of David Byrne hearts? There's a whole CNN story about that and David Byrne hearts former lobbying law firm is cashing in this whole time. The Washington Post reports that the natural resources division. Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck. Has quadrupled its business since Bernhardt rejoined interior pulling in nearly five million dollars last year alone to lobby the department of the interior which is now run by its former head David Bernhardt. So it is not surprising that all of these revelations taken together are turning David Bernhardt into the next Ryan Zinke, who of course, you'll recall left interior under a cloud of investigations. There is already a preliminary investigation from interior's inspector general into whether Bernhardt violated his ethics obliga- shins when he issued an order to harm the delta smelt at small fish at the behest of Westlands water district. Senator Ron Wyden has requested a criminal investigation into whether Bernhardt and brownstein Hyatt violated lobbying disclosure laws and two house committees are requesting transcribed on the record interviews with those interior staffers who kept those vanishing calendars. So all of this is to say. That even if Bernhardt his confirmed this week his troubles are only getting started.

U.S. eases protections for threatened bird in Western states

"The Trump administration today finalized changes to sweeping federal land use plans for the west is think restrictions on energy companies and other industries in a way administration officials say. Said would still protect a struggling bird species? The changes by the US bureau of land management will guide future efforts to conserve greater sage grouse ground. Dwelling birds that range across portions of eleven western states, environmentalists said the widely anticipated move will undermine protections for the chicken sized grouse, it would allow more oil and gas drilling mining and other activities that can disrupt grouse breeding grounds, but the changes secured key backing from democratic and Republican governors in affected states bolstering the administration's position that revisions were needed to plans crafted under former President Barack Obama. The birds are known for no elaborate mating ritual in which males fan their tails and puff out yellow air sacs in their chess as they strut around breeding grounds known as lex their numbers have. Plummeted due to energy, development, disease, and other factors. Opponents are expected to challenge the changes in court, Bryan. Let ledge with the Audubon society said the revisions will make it harder to stop the long term. Decline of sage grouse by giving oil and gas companies access to crucial grouse habitat.

"Bill that passed is a huge victory. But the congressional session is still young. What are you looking forward to this session that you think there's there's still the possibility of of getting through on on outdoor or public lands issues? I actually think that there are a number of things that we may be able to have sort of a second vite at the apple I could certainly see another package coming together. There are always things that are just not quite ready. And oftentimes it takes years to get the details. Just right to wear something, you know, ready for primetime. And and ready to go across the finish line. I'm continuing to work on issues in my state that just weren't ready for this package yet, including some potential new national park designations. So I suspect that's probably true throughout the west. And and even in communities up and down the east coast places like North Carolina where national forests are such a big deal. And I think it's going to be important for us to realize that you know, you have this sentiment for a moment. And it may be there five years from now, it may not we really oh it to our kids and our grandkids to to make the most of it. So you mentioned Nestle monuments couple minutes ago. The last time you are on the podcast was in fact, the day after President Trump issued his proclamation that attempted to shrink bears ears and grand staircase. Galante national monuments new call that quote in embarrassment at the time. That's obviously all tied up in court since then the trumpet news station hasn't tried to drink any other monuments. But Ryan Zinke did single out some of the monuments you worked on Granville north day organ mountains, desert peaks as monuments that he thought. Needed amended proclamations and presidential orders. Have you heard anything since then from the Trump administration or from acting secretary Bernhardt about what they might try to do their or have? They finally been scared off they're going to keep their hands off national monuments. I really think with regards into Mexico, at least it became incredibly clear to former secretaries thinki- that there was not the sentiment to support changes to those monuments, and even though those were sort of rolled out in a list of places that quickly that sort of faded to the back burner. Possibly even just off the stove for them. I think his visits to New Mexico where it was overwhelming the amount of support for those places where I think we're instructive and helpful in creating that dynamic and then. You know, the legislation that we have just passed also. Because it it doesn't Nate's the the road 'less portions of those monuments is wilderness. Really, I think affectively protect some of the potential abuses that we could have seen under the kind of language that was discussed at that time, you know, talk talk of new rights of way, new canoe developments across some of these areas. I think it would be very hard to do that. In the case of real grunted. They'll Norte national monument and organ mountains desert peak national monument now that those places are permanently protected in statute as well as having the monument to sort of tie them together sting on David Bernhardt for just one second in the news update at the top of the podcast. We talked about these letters that senators Blumenthal and Warren's sent to the inspector general and the top ethics officials. Interior asking for an investigation documents around David Bernhardt ethical conflicts over on the house side, we've seen chairman Roll Hall asking for detailed schedules from Bernhardt at some point the White House. Presumably will submit burn hearts name for an official nomination. What do you think happens at that point should the Senate, wait until these document requests, come back? Is there chance they plough ahead. What's your read on what that nomination process or fight? Looks like. What you know if history is any guide, and I think it probably is the the majority leader. I think will will move forward. He has been incredibly loyal to the president. Even when the president has been disrespectful of the very issues of separation of powers, and and respect for the constitution with regard to the tower the person emergency declaration. So I think Mitch McConnell moves forward. I think where we can really have some important impact is in the confirmation hearings for for that position in particular, and in in many of their other nominations, you know, their nominee for the EPA right now is just an absolute and utter embarrassment. You know, we're we're putting the FOX in charge of the hint house as it were. And so I think it's incredibly important, even if we don't have the votes to win every battle that we take on. I think what is just as important is showing the American people. That were on their side. And and these these processes have have a way of doing that and illustrating that to to people, and that's really really critical. Real quickly before you go. I want ask since, you know, New Mexico. So well, you were guide obviously have campaigned on it. What do you think is the most under appreciated outdoor spot in New Mexico Vicks? You've got these spectacular national parks and monuments, but what are the places that people? Don't think of that they should think of going to when they come to your state. You know, I would say oftentimes people look at a map, and they go to the places that are on that map. There are some big blank spots on on the map New Mexico that are that are very worthy of people's outdoor time and attention. You know, our wilderness study areas that the bureau of land management, wilderness study areas that have not yet been designated some of them are just absolutely spectacular. And so that's one of the places I would urge people to if they wanna if they wanna spend some time into really spectacular country in the land of enchantment places like continental divide, wilderness study area truly remarkable landscapes that do not get the kind of his attention, and and visitor pressure that you typically see in other states, and you mentioned the possibility of noon national park. Units. What are those that? You're you're looking at if you're in a position to name them. The the one that is the furthest along right now. And it you know, we had legislation in the previous congress and came close didn't quite get across the finish line. But I will be reintroducing that legislation, and I think with a new member of congress from southern New Mexico may have a partner rather than adversaries Whitesands what what we hope to be white sands national park. And and that effort is really the outgrowth once again of local community thing, why isn't this all ready national park, and you know, really wanting this special place that is such a huge part of the brand of southern New Mexico to get the attention. And the respect it deserves nationally. I gotta tell your timing's great there. The the history segment we're about to talk about is the first hypersonic flight in world history happened this week at white sands in nineteen forty nine. So I appreciate it. Perfect. Ts. Senator Martin Heinrich. Thank you again so much for your time and for coming back to the podcast very much. Appreciate it. And thank you for all the work. You do in defense of our public lands. It's a it's a real pleasure. And you know, it's important that when we do have these big developments that we get together. And celebrate them. All right as promised we'll wrap up with a look back at this week in western history. Blink and you'll miss it. It was on a Thursday, February twenty fourth nineteen forty nine sitting on a launchpad at the white sands proving ground in New Mexico. Scientists had a German v two rocket brought to the US after World War Two and sitting on top of that v was another rocket a slender little needle called the WAC, corporal. The scientists were trying something crazy a two stage rocket now it wasn't clear if this would work for previous launches had failed. Either the first or the second stage didn't work with the whole thing. Just blew up which is what had happened the previous November. But scientists knew that both rockets worked on their own v. Two had previously reached sixty nine miles high A WAC, corporal, had previously reached fifty miles. Now, I wanna stop and explain the name here early rocket programs in the US were. Named after the enlisted ranks of the army recruit. Private corporal sergeant each of them getting bigger and bigger as they developed and went along. But then the rocket scientists came up with the idea for what is now known as a sounding rocket a research rocket that is only designed to take measurements and perform experiments in flight, well that didn't fit the pattern of bigger and better. It was only one foot in diameter whose only twenty four feet long. So they named it the WAC after the women's army corps. And so it was a WAC rocket destined to make history that day New Mexico, the German v two first-stage made it up to one hundred miles high hitting thirty five hundred miles an hour, then the WAC corporal lit up, accelerating to more than five thousand miles an hour reaching anelle -tituted of two hundred forty four miles that was a full one hundred thirty miles farther than the previous record of a single stage. V two rocket the. The WAC corP that day became the first man made object to reach hypersonic speeds that is to say more than five times the speed of sound and scientists were surprised when a year later they found tail fragments of that record breaking rocket in the desert near the launch site and Whitesands now when you hit mach five there's no clap of thunder like when a plane breaks the sound barrier. But the physics involved does change dramatically. The vehicle service starts to heat up because of friction and shockwaves so protecting against that heat becomes the principal design challenge for hypersonic vehicles that flight in New Mexico that day proved it was possible. And it proved that multi stage rockets were going to be the way to get to space by nineteen sixty two just thirteen years later, the mercury rocket that launched John Glenn into orbit hit mach twenty two seven years after that the Saturn five rockets that sent the Apollo astronauts to the moon would hit mock thirty on the. Way there and the highest speed ever recorded for manned vehicle came during the Apollo ten flight on its way back from orbiting the moon just shy of twenty five thousand miles an hour or thirty two times faster than the speed of sound and the fastest man made object in the universe. That is the Parker solar probe launched just last year. It's currently making a series of passes around Venus and the sun getting closer and picking up speed. Each time. It is already traveling at two hundred twelve thousand miles an hour or mach two hundred seventy seven on its closest passes around the sun in twenty twenty four and twenty twenty five the Parker solar probe is expected to hit four hundred thirty thousand miles per hour. Five hundred sixty times the speed of sound breaking the previous record which was actually just held by the Juno probe that went to Jupiter. It'll break that record more than two and a half times over a race to go. Ever faster that started with the first hypersonic flight over the New Mexico desert seventy years ago this week in western history. Well,

Authorities say she managed a budget of more than thirty five million dollars aimed at targeting elections here and in other countries the methods from Russians balk domain names and Facebook ads to sow division on issues such as race relations and immigration their messages targeted people, including former President Barack Obama and late Arizona Senator John McCain may also mentioned special counsel, Robert Muller the man leading the investigation. Into Russian interference in two thousand sixteen. Intelligence officials say the Russians are still on the attack. But they say there's no evidence foreign adversaries have been able to prevent Americans from voting or to change vote counts. Carrie Johnson NPR news, Washington. The Trump administration's trying to fast track and environmental review of projects that deliver. Federally subsidized water to farmers out. West NPR's, Kirk siegler reports a new presidential. Memorandum is designed to loosen environmental restrictions in west coast states, Republicans going back to the George W Bush administration have tried to increase water deliveries to farmers and California's massive central valley project where water from snow fed reservoirs gets pumped south to arid farmland. But those deliveries are perennially cut back due to attempts to protect endangered fish and drought. The president's order would speed up a current review of this as well as two other projects in Oregon and Washington, if environmental restrictions are loosened there will likely be. Prolonged legal battle one of the biggest champions of this latest plan is deputy interior secretary. David Bernhardt used to lobby for the Fresno based Westlands water district one of the largest and most influential water agencies in the west Kirk siegler, NPR news. This is NPR firm cake news, I'm Tiffany Cam. High. President Trump wants to see more water go to central valley farmers so much. So that he signed a memorandum saying that yesterday science reporter Lauren summer is here to explain all of this to us and Lauren the federal government has put states in charge of their own water. Does this memo tried to chip away at those states rights, and if not what does it do? Yeah. I mean, the reality is California is in charge of most of the decisions around water within our state borders, and that's based on a lot that goes back more than a century. There is one area though. And this is where it's. Get particularly messy where the federal government controls things and that has to do with them endangered species protections for salmon and delta smelt these two fish that are kind of caught up in these California water wars. So the federal government is now rewriting those protections. The memorandum from Trump basically said to speed up that process, and if that actually weakens protections for these endangered species it sets up a really big fight potentially. And that's because the state has its own endangered species acts of estate will want to see tough protections for these species. Even if the federal government weakens them. So the president was surrounded by a lot of Republican congress members from the central valley when he signed this a few of them are in races. That are tighter than expected. Is it a coincidence that this is coming so close to the election? There's a lot of speculation that no it was not a coincidence. I mean, you have people like Representative Jeff Denham from turlock his race is a lot tighter than maybe he expected. And a lot of them. Got this great photo op with the president signing something and they can go back to their constituents. Mostly farmers saying look what we did for you. Even though really this. Memorandum will probably have very little immediate impact for those farmers in terms of getting water that was Lauren summer, and I'm
