As far as going forward we set some who say like say we sort of vision by demonstrations that have vision for you know significant cuts in carbon but there needs to be a a An actual foundation for that in a way to get there and the real question is whether we'll be able to get in in the next few weeks some progress on cleaning up the electric sector in the way that will actually chart a credible paths or pitino's reduction goals.

"department health services" Discussed on America Adapts the Climate Change Podcast
"I think the local media certainly did a good job of covering as as it was going on and reporting things like they're some of the road started to buckle. There was power. Outages reported those very quickly. They tried to report that cooling center locations and kind of the changing criteria for where those places were and what the operating hours were and even things like try met. I'm transit system had cables that were literally melting due to extreme heat. And so i think a lot of that was reported incredibly quickly so i think on the on the other hand kind of some national national coverage of it that just focused on the heat wave aspect and not attributing gets a climate change and i think there was some pushback and some of the stories actually get corrected and climate change was later added into those. Do you think it's using. I'm thinking of people who are urban planners but then the public themselves that they are having trouble understand the difference between a changing climate and weather extremes and i guess i'm even focusing more those planners that they're like wow look what happened over here maybe we should do some things different. And if there's such a front page quality to some of these things like this heat wave do people down at the planning level. Is that useful to them. Do you think they are reacted or does it. Filter right down into what they do. In other ways. Yeah no. I think that's exactly what makes extreme heat hard to govern. Which is what i study. And so there's chronic aspect like we talked about that sometimes dealt better with those long term changes to the built environment to reduce urban heat island effect and then there's that kind of emergency management side of things and heat management strategies that said. He's need to pursue unrelated related to getting information about oncoming waves to the public and getting things cooling centers opened shutting down sports events. And all of those. And i think there's also disciplinary disconnects. Like we talked about two so right now. Heat mitigation strategies are seeing as an are seen in are functionally very much. The kind of the planners landscape architects architects realm where the heat management strategies are very much in public health and emergency management and. They think there's actually a lot of opportunities for better connecting all of those together because where we mitigate heat and the built environment can also tell us the appropriate places to put in cooling shelters and things like that so so there's a lot of there's a lot of disconnects between those right now and i think there's a lot of opportunities to better coordinate all of those activities together. The city miami just appointed the first chief heat officer in the nation. I think that's accurate from the key coverage. I've miami dade county miami dade county. I know better. I should know that it's all just southeast florida. They're all one giant strip mall when it gets crap for that you. Can we ask now i. They're talking about miami for awhile now. So that's exciting. That's very last name gilbert. You know her full name. Yes jane gilbert was the city of miami's previous chief resilience officer and she's been appointed miami. Dade county's interim chief heat officer while they while they look for funding and try to build that position up in one of the articles that had a list of five or six bullet points. Okay what is this position supposed to do. And it's like that looks pretty good. Do you think they've set her up well to do what they wanted to do. Yeah that's a good question. I think there's no answer to that right now. Because it's such an emerging area of governance. And they're such the forefront they're such forefront vet the city of phoenix actually just created office if he'd response in mitigation also and so. I think those are the first two examples in the united states. We have had staff city staff before that have been appointed the people to the heat. But it's usually along with other climate risks. So i think they use it there. I two examples of people that are truly dedicated to heat as arrest. And it'll be really interesting to see which approaches work best and what we can learn from so that other cities can kind of apply them to their own situations. Well we certainly wish her lock. And i think a sign that you know. How series is the government taking his like. Is there a budget attached to the work that she's doing i think at the moment. They're still looking for funding. a hope. she's a good grant writer. Because i think that's going to probably be. She makes a lot of progress. But i think a lot of people will be watching what she does. That's i think that's really cool. I want to talk about. Maybe how some cities are doing this and so miami. And they've appointed to chief heat officer and i was reading as i was getting ready for this. How you have to think big. And i wanna get your opinion on what cities are doing it. Well and why do they do it. Well you're gonna need to get into details. Or what are they doing. But if you just mentioned how does a city really respond to this issue to have good leadership along those lines. And there was a city in germany i was reading that stood guard and they actually have reconfigured some of the roads that 'cause there's mountains aaron i think it flows air through the city. They used the entire city as sort of event and made ordinances that. You can't build buildings in the pathway of these airways and i thought that was just really cool thinking big thinking macro so what cities are doing it. Well yeah that's a good question. I think everyone sell back up. And say and my colleague jeremy road i have done a survey of planners across the united states all different regions looking at how they're cities addressing extreme heat in the previous noah funded project where we did interviews and planning analysis looking at how different cities again kind of across the country are planning for heat both chronic and heat risk and so. I think what we found is that everyone focuses on a little bit different parts of it depending on what the risks are and there's no one great example that everyone should follow right now but some cities are doing things better than others and i would say. The city of phoenix administering a really good job with connecting different levels of governance on heat. And so the city works very closely with the arizona department health services and the national weather service to kind of do a heat relief network is what they call it where they make sure that those warnings get out really quickly and they have kind of cooling center response. I would point to.

Now people are doing it as sage specialty pharmacy President John Phillips tells TMZ news teams before news that they consider their efforts is providing a community service loved 15 year old kids. The ones going to summer camp and doing a lot of activities and potentially pair vectors for spreading the virus is, Philip says they've already scheduled at least 500 appointments for that newest age group eligible non received and I see that state DHS department health services. There's only 300,000 kids in that group. It seemed like a small number to me the word against more Yeah, I would have said maybe a half a million, maybe more than that. But the great news is, parents seem to have have said. Let's let's go get this done so we can get to these activities enjoy the summer, So this is one more step on the way to getting people vaccinated there again. People want to argue with me about a lot of things, and that's part of the fun of doing a radio show. There is a direct correlation whether you like it or not between getting vaccinated and the numbers dropping incredibly Really low numbers for Cove in serious covered cases in the country, And to me it is a cause and effect. There's an action is taken by most people these half the country almost vaccinated now and seeing that drop in cases that that is It's not an accident, not a coincidence that that's happening. You're also seeing more district's now starting to relax their guidelines. Walker Shaw, the latest school district to say masks will be optional for students. Interesting. 54 votes pretty close and every one of these school board meetings that I've seen and watched Have always been contentious. There's there's a group of parents that say, we got to get rid of this. Now, let's get back to normal. There's other group that's also just as vociferous that say, You know what? This is not safe. What about this? What about this? And that argument is really That's the way it should be. There should be a back and forth. There should be a pro and con and that that debate is healthy. It's good. Whatever Walker shot does Walker Shaw has to live with the consequences. They decided they don't want their kids to wear face coverings with some minor exceptions. That's the way the process should work. I make sense to me one more before the break. No, let's go to the break we've got. We've got a fete last segment of the world that's like, ma'am.

"92 3 FM and the K t A R news app. Hey, Thanks for being here. I appreciate you spending some time with me. Happy ST Patrick's Day. Hope you got some fun planned tonight. Um, looking at the numbers like I do all the time, but I'm not going to dig in and dug deep into the numbers with covert 19. But we're seeing the results of the vaccine, the lowest two groups of people that are being infected or 55 65. Plus, so last couple of weeks, it's been the 65 year olds were the lowest by far now It's the 55 year old age group. So 55 55 to 64 years old as well. So we're seeing a dramatic drop in cases in those two demographics, which is going to the next lagging statistic is hospitalizations were going to see continued lowering of the hospitalization numbers, which is what we wanted to do with covert 19 from the beginning, limit hospitalizations and overwhelming our medical care system and deaths. What I wanted to point out was what the city of Phoenix did once again. We talked about it earlier a couple of times today because I think it's that important. The city of Phoenix knowing what the data is They have done a lot of things that were optics mask mandates. The businesses were already mandated through the governor's office and the department health services that when people go into public places, there's distancing and mask rules in place and the businesses have to police this or they lose their licenses. Not a big fan of it, like a lot of people aren't but that's the way it worked. The city's air, putting mask mandates in place that are unenforceable, and they're calling that a good thing. And then what they did was a city of Phoenix did was shut down the parks. The neighborhoods where kids live in that live in apartment complexes in condominium complexes that are, let's face it the poorer families, the families of the working class where the either a single parent household or both parents are working, sometimes two jobs. Those kids don't have a backyard to play in our front yard to plan And those of the neighborhoods that desperately need the parks for kids to be able to go out and do things so you look at some of the district's around here, and not only did they not have school, why didn't have school because they were in a zip code where the covert 19 cases were through the roof, and we don't want to endanger kids in school, the CDC said. It was the safest place. So let's move on to the next thing. Kids are now inside, being schooled and inside playing video games. They're not going out. Why? Because the only place they have the player the public parks and they were closed to can't use the playground equipment can't use the pavilions. So what we did with this virus and in hindsight, I know there's going to be a big debrief, and the American people are gonna look back at this as well. What we did was look at the biggest demographic of problems, and that was 65 plus. We never put limits on people at the over the age of 65. I don't think you can there would the government knows that it can't. If you remember Thanksgiving, they threw their hands in the air and said, We know they're going to be private gatherings. People are going to travel. Even though we're recommending that they don't and the American people said You're right. We're going to gather and more than groups of 12 and we're going. We're not going to forsake our holidays and they didn't And we did see a spike after The warning was if you're over 65 don't attend these gatherings. If you have these gatherings, where did we supposed to have them outside? Not inside outside. So we shut down the outside of the bit most at risk kids as far as the ones that have no place to go there have a backyard to play in, ride their bike in the street, right? So we did that to them. But what we didn't do was ever say to the people over the age of 65 you people are at the highest risk. You are the ones that have to maintain your distance the most. Please don't go out unless it's necessary. What we did was we shut everybody else down. So the very group that didn't need to be shut down where young people we could have kept sports going for kids. There's no issue we're seeing kids. They're not spreading covert 19. We could have kept sports and extracurricular activities going. We could have kept classrooms open. Pre schools were open and then college is opened and somehow K through 12 was the one area that was going to be the big issue. So we restricted the least affected group. If you look at the numbers like I look at the numbers, and I do it every single day. Hospital case numbers, hospitalization numbers and numbers of deaths. The under 20 age group is almost immune to this. There were 100 as of today over 133,000 cases under the age of 20. You compare that with some of the other age groups. Now there were cases with people under the age of 20 and the younger you get the cases dropped off off that there were only 643 hospitalizations in the entire state. And only 24 deaths. They fall into the zero percentile of deaths. Conversely, there were over 111,000 cases over the age of 65. Which, if you do the math is 22,000 less cases. 22,000 less cases over the age of 65. They were 27,000 deaths. Not 1612. I'm sorry. Hospitalizations and 12,000 deaths, not 24. We put our restrictions on the kids. Looking back at this. We restricted.

"For being here. It's to make room had show more good news, or at least potentially good news Coming is Johnson and Johnson asked US regulators Okay is one shot covert 19 vaccine, so this one is a little bit less effective, 66% effective rate. At preventing the moderate to severe covert 19, according to early findings of 44,000 people in the U, S. Latin America and South Africa. So it's 85 protective against the most serious symptoms and starting 28 days after their shot, researchers found no one got the vaccine needed hospitalization or died. So that is great news. This is something if it's a if it's a one injection vaccine, obviously going to save a lot of time for people. And would be again you would have to have half the dose is too to vaccinate people fully. So this could be a game changer as well. You add this now a third manufacturer, and you add that to the list, especially this one not needed to be refrigerated, especially to the degree the others where it's got to be started. Very, very cold temperatures. This is the kind of vaccine that could go to pharmacies. It could go into the fries pharmacies into the different drugstores here in town. We heard yesterday fries grocery stores that their pharmacies they're going to start allowing the are going to start providing vaccine at the pharmacy, so convenience, one shot versus to scheduling and all those things to get a second appointment in making sure that it's back. You're vaccinated. This could be the one that a lot of people choose. Being much more effective. And then kill, you know, really reducing symptoms in people. So with this happening, we're seeing more and more people looking forward and we should be and I don't want to spend all day going back to the school topic. But in the end, we're arguing about something and we're arguing about the wrong thing. When it comes to schools and opening businesses and everything else, there is a necessity and the necessity is the kids are in school. There was a necessity that we keep our economy moving forward as best we can. No one that has advocated for opening schools like myself. No one that's advocated for the businesses that are staying open are careless or reckless or heartless when it comes to death and injury. Not at all. It's just a more comprehensive look at things in how things can be handled and maintain Arizona. Had a very high rate of spread worst in the country. Worst in the world. We weren't much worse than California it was percent. The percentage is where so much smaller and they were bad in California, and they were shut down New York the same thing California's ended there. Shut down. They're still in a horrible place. New York is opening up in person dining. And there in the worst shape than when they shut down in person dining before. There's a couple of reasons for it one. There is a political element to it. The citizens of these places are very upset and saying, We're not going to stand for this anymore. And people are fighting for their political life. The governor of California may be recalled. So there is that element of it. But the other element of it is the data and what people want to ignore is that largely in public places, we're not seeing the rate of spread we saw before. We have gotten much better at mitigation strategies, protocols and practices and most employers. Most businesses are employing those tactics. That doesn't mean everyone. Whenever I talk about there's somebody will send me an email. I was in the East Valley and I saw six people not wearing masks. We're in a 90% compliance in mask wearing And you could see and I will. This will be my last defense of this. We know that we were we were warned. We were warned in early November. Thanksgiving Christmas New Year's Eve. If you're gathering in groups, multigenerational Thanksgiving is classically a multi generational, holiday and family small over the country get together and it is a time that they were terrified that it was going to crisscross the nation and cause of spike nationwide, and it did. Mitigation strategies in public. We're still working people were getting it in their private gatherings. That was the warning sign. So I will say to you respectfully again. Anybody who's in favor of the shutdown. You're angry here that the governor didn't do more of a shutdown that there weren't other, more other mitigation strategies employed. We're watching a considerable drop and I'm online as we speak. I do this every day hospital bed usage and availability at very low levels of usage again. We're going down in ICU bed usage well below the spike from last time we were watching it decreased rapidly. We're watching impatient. Bad usage also decreased rapidly. Ventilator usage decrease rapidly. And we haven't changed anything in how we do things. So what's the cause in the drop off? People are getting the message about private gatherings. They're not having the private gatherings like they used to. And there's no reason to now that's the big concern is Super Bowl Sunday because it's another gathering time. But when people are going in public, the businesses have jumped onboard, largely because they've been threatened, But they've jumped on board with the mitigation strategies. It's safer in public. And then to go back to the last argument we made. That's why schools are the safest place for the kids when they're home. When they're not in a classroom. They're gathering with their friends, and they're not paying attention to any protocol. When they're in the classroom. Largely, not 100% of the time. They're asked to wear masks. They're distancing washing their hands and there's protocol in place. That's why you're seeing these places Cave in and start to reopen data is showing a They're losing their businesses that will never come back and be. It's safer in public as long as the mitigation strategies are being used. It's time to follow the data. Stop arguing with each other because we want to dig in and let's get moving in the right direction. And thank goodness for this. Johnson and Johnson vaccine. I'm gonna speak with will humble this morning. I believe it. 10 30, We're gonna speak with him about former director of Arizona Department health services about these different vaccines. So if you're around a 10 30 love to have you join us for that In a moment Ghettos joins me..
