"To your smart device. Asking it to play us is probably the smart thing you could do. Hey, Alexa, Wave the flag Smart choice. Welcome back Jim Bohannon Short 186650 Jimbo is Dr Carol Swain is our guest political scientist, Retired professor of law at Vanderbilt University, a lifetime member of the James Madison Society and founder of Be the people News dot com and again If you could get the binge TV network you can see Some of the things that she does on video. Ah, she had a run in with the folks that linked in. They caved on that. For the moment, Facebook still keeps her in a suspended state or daring to a show, eh, MIM that illustrated Democratic members of Congress wearing Ku Klux Klan robes. Well, just so happens that Democrats were those who founded that particular. Organization. And again she is living proof that yes, indeed. There is discrimination on the social media to Ah, people who have a conservative viewpoints, and that includes the people. Who are women and people who are of color, and Dr Carol Swain is living proof of that. I want to get into Ah, there their real agenda and then more calls. How do you define the real agenda? That should work here? Because I mean things like what you mentioned about math a moment ago. I mean, that's just dumb. And I'm sure that they are not just trying to look dumb. Right and a Sephora's big tech When I wrote a book that was published into this and 11 and updated, uh, this year be the people called to reclaim America's space and promise I talked about the alliance. Between the Obama administration's National Security Agency and Google and how dangerous that Woz and that opened the door for the Democrats to have alliances with Facebook. Twitter and other um, tech platforms, and I think that one reason why they are shutting down conservative voices is They really do and did have a dog in the fight, and we saw them openly fighting for Democrats. And I can tell you that when I ran for mayor, um The day of the election in 2019, we had planned to send out reminders on my, um uh, page Mayor page on Facebook. We could not get anything to load. We could not get anything to post until seven p.m. and that was when the polls were closed. And you know, it just seemed odd, but I really do believe that they interfered with us so that we could not send out reminders. For that election, and so they are in the camp of the Democratic Party and what they do for Democrats. All too can't as campaign contributions. Well, absolutely. Again. What you just said would not surprise me in the least. 186650 Jimbo 18665. Oh, 546264 Dr. Carol Swain. Here is Clint in Anchorage, Alaska. Good evening. Hey, How are you today? We're well headed. Great. Had a question for the doctor. Um I've noticed. I'm 46 years old. I've noticed, you know that she mentioned earlier. The ties to Of Christianity to slavery and whiteness and The kind of I'll get thrown together these days, and I have noticed kind of ah, gravitation of people of color towards the Islamic religion and had this question for some time. And I wonder why that is. That's the Um Nations practicing Islam today still practice slavery. So well, he was like that of the places on the planet. Not every of course not. Every Islamic society does, but of the places on the planet, which do still practice out nowt purchasing of human beings that you'll probably find more of it there than any other particular segment of the planet. I think that that would probably be true, Dr Swain. And every now and then we hear about cases in the United States where they're practicing it here with someone that manages to escape on alert Theater three authorities And so I mean, that's factual. I don't know that black people are gravitating towards Islam. If anything, they're becoming more secular humanists. And black lives matter, and those organizations are progressive organizations and critical race theory comes out of Marxism. Uh, it's like a derivative of the critical theories that were Marxists. And there's no place for God and Christianity is seen as an enemy. They want allegiance to the state. And so Americans who you know, swear an oath to the Constitution. As well as those who believe in a God who was above man who put that service to God above man. Those people are threats. And so I think that's where Christianity Um, is singled out And as far as Islam, a lot of the Islam and other religions. A lot of the schools are promoting what we would consider pagan religions. And that is the way the weekend Christianity and to seduce you know the Children. I want to come back and talk about the specific things you were just talking about. When we return again our number 186650, Jimbo, and you could find out more about Dr Carol Swain. The best website is be the people news dot com Be the people news dot com 186650 Jimbo back in a.

"Smart device, asking it to play us is probably the smart thing you could do. Hey, Lex, a wave the flag marked choice. Welcome back. Jim Bohannon Short 186650, Jimbo as we speak with Dr Carol Swain. Political scientist, retired professor of law at Vanderbilt University Lifetime member of the James Madison Society and founder of Be the people News dot com and as the break intervene, she was just explaining That while of Facebook may have gotten in your way a bit, but that something called the binge TV Network has not pleased if you would to repeat the way that you couldn't find the bench TV network. It's um, anyone that has a smart TV on any number of the ants like broke. Ooh! Amazon far. As well as pick up plutonium. Those ABS If you put in binge TV network, my channel will pop up. Click on it and you can watch the 30 minute show. And they show us about. Faith, politics, culture, Whatever's on my mind there, enough, All right. Here's a call from Frank and Cumberland, Maryland for Dr Carol Swain. Hello, Frank. Urgent independent thinking. Do you have enough of those qualities that criticize Israel for not accepting black people is immigrants and paying the few immigrants in Israel there to leave? And as much, as is ago receives billions of dollars in American aid? Well, first of all, I was not aware of that policy. But if you have any comments, Dr Swain feel free. With the call of Sam like an ad in my mind like something like he was programmed true. First, I know there've been a number of people of the Jewish faith from Africa, which I think would they are people who would be considered people of color by most of the definition who, in fact, have, in fact found homes and I'm not sure what the question what exactly is the question? The question is just to find a way to smear Israel. Quite frankly, and I'm not sure that that contribute much to the program in question. 186650, Jimbo, is the number 18665. Oh, 54626. You have mentioned critical race theory and a number of people, of course have heard about that. I don't know that that we have all had it explained to us necessarily. In terms of just what exactly is the critical race theory? I can tell you that when you see diversity, equity and inclusion, training or equity education coming to your neighborhood, it is all steeped in critical race theory, which is a philosophy that came from the universities. Ah, and it Pretty much are used that Um, Western civilization in particular has been set up to benefit white people and whiteness. And in the American context, you know, the white people have all benefited from that white skin. They all have white privilege. They are oppressors and non whites of the oppressed and that the only way that quite people can redeem themselves is to is to become consciously. Anti racist and By the coming anti racist They need to dismantle the structures that they have set up to benefit themselves, and they need to challenge a racism wherever they find it. So if you are a college student, or now anyone in caper 12 where you being indoctrinated you go home. You challenge your parents and your grandparent's about there are systemic racism. And it was news to most of them. Right. Pardon? That's news to most of them, isn't it? Those parents? No, but it also you know has to do with. Ah, it's not just Christianity is seen as part of whiteness. Capitalism and all of these structures of things that people are told that they need to dismantle and unfortunately, uh, Corporation schools. It's sweeping America. President Trump tried to do something about it late in his term he did in the executive Hey, Sand, an executive order. Up in it in the federal government because the trainers make millions of dollars and there's no standards. They don't make me into dollars Procession is a million dollar industry. But people are making, you know huge salaries doing diversity training. And there's no standard sister. What qualifies someone to be a diversity trainer. I think a lot of the people that we laughed that a few years ago there were getting degrees that ended in studies. You know. Women's studies black studies, LGBT Study Chicano studies. We wondered where they were going to get jobs where they university equity inclusion training now. Yeah, And so that that's the part of this was well, they're They're jobs that at stake here and so I guess from what you just outlined, then then let's say people like, uh, like John Johnson, who found a Johnson publishing and Ebony magazine, Uh, Berry Gordy founded Motown Records. These people can't be real black people because they're capitalists. Is that is that how this works? Well, I mean, pretty much. Um, if you're liberal, you're still in the club. If you're black, conservative, you're not. And I think Candice Owens and I both have been called black white supremacists. Oh, I'm sure you have been called all kinds of ugly names over the years, and you know something. I'm just pro American. And I can tell you that Critical race theory. The way I see it, Ah, practice at most places. It runs Canada, a civil rights laws and the equal protection clause of the 14th amendment, and I think that people are should document what happens in those required courses. And Ah, if they are being bullied and intimidated and then a hostile workplace or school environment, they need to file lawsuits and that and I believe that non white Need to stand up in fight for the civil rights of whites, just like many white sport for the civil rights of racial, ethnic minorities. To me, there is something incredibly patronizing about the notion of You were here to make you free. So do exactly as we tell you Don't think for yourself, do what you're told. And this will liberate you that that that strikes me as kind of an odd point of view. It's even worse than this. The whole notion that whiteness is property and that white people have all these privileges privileges because of the color of their skin. To me, that's a white supremacist argument coming from the lamp. And you see it. The colleges universities how they administrators a quick to resurvey forces. And separate graduations and lowered standards for minorities. That is the true white supremacy, and it's racist. Whole argument is racist. And I think that we need Tomo Call them out on that. And white people need to stop cowering in fear. They afraid they're gonna be called a racist. You already been called a racist. You already been told that because of the color of your skin and your ancestors that you're guilty. You have nothing to lose, but standing up for your rights, and I think that the point you just made it is very, very critical. And that is that these these lowered standards for people of color Well, They're only black. What can you expect? That is the implied extremely racist point of view. We have to make special They couldn't go ahead. The worst thing is that because to make everyone equal, they're going after classes for gifted students where there are always some minorities in those classes, some blacks, Hispanics Get into the classes for gifted students. They're going to take them away from everyone. And then when you say that math is racist, and the teachers should not require Um, exact answers on math problems because it's racist. Do you think that teachers really gonna set the black kids in the mountain authority kids in the corner and teach them that and the rest of the kids get taught? Real man. Know if the teaches believe that they're going to teach the whole class that there no right answers to math. And so then where would the next generation of engineers, scientists, architects? Um pharmacists and even caches come from if we all of a sudden say that math is racist, there are no right answers. We're not going to teach people math. Well, obviously this comes from people who are not. Shall we say the sharpest knives in the drawer? We'll go back. We'll talk some more about Their real agenda. Dr. Carol Swain, our guest again. Her website is her named Carol. M. As in whatever the M stands for Swain s w A. I n dot com 186650. Jimbo is our number and we'll be back in.

"Welcome back Jim Bohannon Show 186650, Jimbo. Our number And the breath for law advantage. But university Dr Carol Swain is our guest. She has run into difficulties with Facebook and just to make sure we have as we take some calls for you here. What's your current status now on Facebook? Has this been resolved? Or are you still under this suspension? For a couple of things. I'm still under the suspension, and secondly, I am returned from Vanderbilt's on no longer there. And while we're talking about big tech About a month ago linked in suspended me for three days because I shared the MIC Lindale study. S so it's It's not just one of them, Okay? They backed down after I said I was going to go public, and so, um, you know, they say which one was this? The Linked in back down. Okay, Very good. All right. We have a call from a fellow Tennessee and John in the Union City, Tennessee. Good evening, John. Good evening, Dr Swaying as a fellow Virginian. Also, I was born in Virginia and 1954 may have you have nothing but my highest respect and for standing up to these Internet thugs and bullies. And I want to tell you that all of this censorship they're trying to foster on Americans is going to come back to bite them, and I I can always say you are a warrior goddess and let them beware because you have been awoken and they have filled you with a terrible resolve. Well, thank you. And which part of Virginia where you born in? I was born in Shenandoah County, Virginia. Okay, um, that all right, well, Virginia's a special state, even though there's lots of efforts to ruin it, and it's always had to struggle, I guess against Forces that would take it down the wrong path. Thank you, John. Appreciate your thoughts, and I'm sure that more than a few people feel this way you, Dr Swain? I would imagine that Intercessor is for Carol Swain. Must have grown its membership because of all of this. Well, I have not been paying attention to the numbers, but I know that people all across the country and probably all across the world. Pray for me at times and Um It makes a difference. Very good. 186650, Jimbo. Our number when 8665. Oh, 5462 Sixes would go to Steve in Atlanta. Hello, Steve. Thanks for taking my call. Appreciate it, Miss Man. Thank you. This swing Thank you for being a fighter on being a Tribute to everyone who who Who feels as though the world's coming down on us in the United States, all normal, rational people, and I would love to see you run for political office. Uh, School, state or national, you would be a force to reckon with. I bet you've heard that before, Dr Swain. I did. I went from Mayor of Nashville in 2018 and special election. I came in number two on the field of 10. Nashville was never elected a Republican. I ran in the general election that next year. Came in number three and a feel of about the same size, heavily outspent spent. But I've never felt that running for office was the call of my life. The only reason I ran for office. When I beat in Nashville was that they needed someone, you know that could that had a platform and I was able to help control the dialogue director dialogue because there were lots of issues. It would never come up if I had not been in the race. I learned a lot of positive things from the process. But I think that my platform And the things that I can do, Um, from this vantage point, maybe more important than what I could do in Congress or At some office like that? Well, that is certainly your choice. But I'll tell you, there'd be a lot of people and I would be one of them. Who would applaud you and and back you? Should you change your mind in that regard? Thanks for your call Steve. Thank you have to be independently wealthy to actually run and be successful and not be corrupted by the process because it's very corrupting. Even for people that go there with the best of intentions. Well, there's certainly that that fact that that Theo go there and stay there requires tons of money. I know a number of people who have left in fact public life and in Congress in particular because of the fact That even Mork than voting on bills and committee and subcommittee and on the floor. Even more than serving constituents is the need to constantly constantly constantly beg for money. Beg for money, beg for money. And of course, there are those People out there who are are quite willing to provide that money if the price is right, and I certainly see what you're saying. Well, I think that we need statesmen and women and that they have to be profiles in courage, and they have to care more about America and the American people. And being returned to office. So when they get there, you know they have to be committed to doing whatever they said they were gonna do and to their values, even if it costs them. Are there seat and the next election? There's not enough people like that. Who would be profiles in courage? Yeah, I think that you've touched on a very key factor there, Dr Swain, and that is that there are more than a few people who are initially motivated by the desire to do the right thing. However, they define what the right thing is. They are principled. And they are idealistic and they get to Congress. They discover. Of course, early on that you are a backbencher. You're a brand new person. You have zero influence, even if you're in the majority party. Even less. If you're not, but you work and you, you you put forward the best average of possibly can. And after a while you may get a little bit of seniority had been elected two or three times. And then when you start to show a little bit of seniority, you start Tell yourself what you know next time out there. I could maybe get a subcommittee chairmanship and I could really do the things that I promised I would try to do when I was first elected to this seat, and if I could only get elected one more time. And at that point you have begun to equate your re election with the welfare of the Republic. And at that point, as far as I'm concerned, you have in star Wars parlance crossed over to the dark side. Am I wrong? Well, that's sort of like the process. But I want people that throw them set throw themselves on the sword. If they have to do in the first time, the best stand on principle. And too many, uh I'm going to say Republicans. I'll pick on Republicans. Um, They do things that ideological because it's not based on principles. If you're operating on principles, you know what to do. You're not gonna do some of things that Done on January 6th. Ah! Or other times where they have not operated on a principle. Points Well taken. We're gonna continue our discussion here at 186650, Jimbo, when 8665 Oh 546 to 6 with Dr Carol Swain, political scientist and the retired professor of law at Vanderbilt University Lifetime member of the James Madison Society.

Yes they were very nice but we've got quite a few of them left Bob, and after all you did make seven fifty on the deal and the money does go to the church. So I thought if you'd like to take about twenty-five chances. Elo Bob. Bob. Find. Just. Wait until I. Want some more tickets printed all. It'll be a cold day in July. Can't hung up on me. That's what he did. The near them just hung up. We've got the church very few minutes well. You go ahead with the kids I'll be along as soon as I get through here. Okay Hello Heck. This is Jim Addison. Just fine. Thanks say heck. She's fine to thank you say. Yes. They're all fine say hey. Have you heard about the raffle were holding. Well all the money goes to the church and the tickets are only a quarter apiece. Oh it's. For a skunk heck. But.

"Okay, let's get back to my conversation with Tom Philpott and then the other thing that I thought was just staggering in terms of and again, I get that. It's sort of one of those were not good as a country at solving upstream problems and it's like just letting the calamity hit us and maybe hopefully we'll learn. But you'd I didn't realize I had no idea that California also has a history of massive. Flooding and I know look we'll get to Iowa on a second where that's I think you right the there're between two thousand and three and two thousand seventeen central Iowa has endured no fewer than four hundred year storms. But California's long overdue for a massive flood and I can only imagine the fact that the floor is sinking in the Central Valley that it would be even more devastating than it was when it happened. was in the nineteenth century there was. Yes, eight, hundred, fifty, one, fifty, two that Winter California's not going to stay very long at this point, the the gold rush is still going starting to Peter out a little bit and the rain comes as a California and basically your rain comes a winner rain and snow come in the winter and it's pretty dry all summer. So the rain comes at a certain point in December and just doesn't stop for weeks and weeks and weeks and it also, there's already some snow in the mountains. It hits the snow and melts it in it just keeps on raining and raining. and. So what happened was basically the entire Central Valley. So talking about. What is about an hour to get to the Central Valley from La Driving, north is pretty far down into northern to southern California all the way up to the Oregon border or close to the Oregon border. You get this entire such ballot under ten feet of water. Probably the one of the worst natural disasters in history. United States and the interesting thing about it is it's been pretty much raced from popular memory. I've talked to lifelong Californians who are really into the state's history that have never heard of it. But archaeologists and Paleo climatologists looked into the fossil record they've looked at tree rings and. Residues around streams that have been there forever, and what they found is that a storm of this caliber or even much bigger happens about every one, two, hundred years. And the last one happened around one hundred and fifty years ago. In. So one hundred, sixty years ago I should say and so. I'm doing math wrong because one hundred, seventy years of eighteen fifty in that gets us all the way to. Two Thousand and now we've got twenty more years. It's one hundred and seventy years, and the idea is that were probably due for one of these coming up soon, and then when you look at climate change research with the climate change scholars find is that. California snowpack. As we go forward is going to be dwindling because of climate change we're GonNa see fewer and fewer storms and more drought years we saw in twenty eleven to twenty. Sixteen. But at the same time, we're GONNA see more powerful storms and there's a guy at Ucla in Dr Swain you says that from his research that he's done, we're looking at one of these things happening in the next twenty years and so consider the Central Valley at that time..

Well, I appreciate you saying that I'll pass that along to my husband. I got three little ones at home, too. So I like to tell them, you know they're making making a sacrifice on behalf of the state as well. So we're all we're all here to serve it. It's the best kind of work to do whatever we need to do for kiddo, So I'm very grateful to be able to be a part of that. Well, that that's great that he understands you need to work and I'm sure it's taken a lot of understanding a statewide you know, for for families to realize that How did you handle graduations where most of those virtual as well Oh, my gosh. Yes, Graduation. We put out some guidance to help folks being creatively about different ceremonies. And you know, for the most part district decided to delay. I'm indu graduations a little bit later. Socially distance on football fields airflow, etcetera. So we had A number of graduation that happened in June and even into July. There were few that did kind of the car parade, maybe decorate their cars and kind of go in a line and get their diploma in and out of the car window. I had the great fortune of goingto Haywood County High School's graduation in the early summer, they social distance thing and really, really a thoughtful process. But you know, it is one of those milestones for your life. When you graduate from high school, and I think I've been Just respect how how much care and bought linen stock from our superintendent district and high school graduation is always so memorable. Something to think about this this year. It will. It will even be maybe more memorable. You know, we graduated when in the middle of a pandemic, You know it had to do it these conditions. You'll never forget that either as long as you live, you know Oh, that's right. That's right. 20 funny. We will never forget. That's right. That's for sure that you mentioned that the Governor Governor Li gave you a grant with some $50 million. He recently made another announcement of a CE Faras, the Financial Stimulus Accountability Group. They announce 61 million In Corona virus aid and relief that discuss that the latest amount of money that you can get Yes. So it was another really important investment. I think in our public schools and allowed for grant to individual districts, we know that as they're setting up their programs, and then all of the different opportunities they'll have. Weather remote learned within this here, but they need some extra support. And so they are grants that range from $50,000 to $150,000 to help our district really needs the needs that their students throughout the year on DH, then I think something that you know I come from a family of educators. I am in an educator married to an educator, and hopefully I'm raising three educators at home. I really love this profession, but He just announced $77 million toward health and safety materials for plastering teacher there will be 80,000 classroom kit that are direct to teachers. Give them disinfecting wipes in hand sanitizer and all the things they need to keep themselves in their students safe as an educator and talking to my Aunt Molly on last night about it. It just means a lot to know that we care about all of our school stakeholders, especially during these difficult times. So it's been a big investment in education and his commissioner, I just I love hearing that news. Great news. Very good news. Today. We're discussing the work of the Tennessee Department of Education. What they're doing right now how they've handled a covert situation and in moving forward with their plans to re open our guest is Dr Penny Schwinn. She is the commissioner of Education for Tennessee. Dr Swain. You touched earlier on the nutrition programs to feeding programs. You know that that things changed rapidly with that in March, when when you had to start dealing with Kobe How did you? How did you deal with that and then moving forward into the summer feeding programs? What has been going on there? Yes. So I will be with this since learning that happened in the spring and the Neil site with the number of districts to consolidated those vice and had a few across the district. We have a website. It's called cool meal finder dot com. Families can put in there. It's code, and it tells them where they can get the most for the nearest food service for their family. There's nothing that happened, I think was really important that we asked for a number of waivers from the federal government. And that allowed for Tennessee to give every child regardless of whether they are school aged or not, And regardless of where they live, to have access to a free breakfast, lunch and supper or breakfast bunch of back on DH that went across the state, and so we saw just compared to other states. So many more kids bed throughout the school year, and we also saw a lot of district to continue those programs into summer. And I think that that was really critical, especially for some of our community to rely on the food service programs for that that carried through into August, and we expect that will be the same level of distribution of nutrition services. As we go into this school year, Tennessee taken care of their own as I know we always D'oh. That had to really be solved in there more years. You had to hurry. If you weren't planning to these programs, you know that start doing things a bit early and helping out kids. But again, it sounds like your staff. Just really took in and worked really hard. We did, and I think it was. You know, I'm so I've never been more proud of the team that the thing that I have the great privilege of working with here, but what I think made it a soy positive as possible, And I think it's productive possible was that the team here at the department work so closely the district That collaboration and unity and teamwork across the state really allowed us to serve our students as a state community, as opposed to kind of the department or the district operating separately, and that was that felt really good. And I think mental lot, everybody How great is the need in Tennessee? Far off? Sorry, kids as far as nutrition and the meals, you know when they're when they get they get food at school. But then once they go home I know A lot of kids are in pretty bad financial situations. How great is uneven in Tennessee? You know, it is one of the things that I wish we Azad country talked about. Even Mohr and Tennessee's on such a good job on this, but we have students in every part of the state. I'm in every district who do rely on that and see if you've been in a lunchroom with Susan. Come from families were really struggling financially. He seems stuffing their lunch in their pocket to take home to meet for dinner later. There's nothing more heartbreaking on that wire. Public schools are just so important to our communities. But we have that in urban rural suburban across the state, but but we have over half of our two really do rely on school meals. Regularly for food. And so it is a big deal. Yeah, that's a lot. I didn't expect it to be that many. Yeah, Yeah. Did they get they get breakfast, lunch and dinner or is that just in the summer they get breakfast, lunch and dinner. Yes, depends on the district. So some district breakfast, lunch snack, and then some district you have after school care will be breakfast, lunch.

Uncle Tom outperform the high expectations I had because I learned history and gained insight on several issues, which I had not learned from listening to thousands of your radio shows and TV appearances. That's how great Uncle Tom was for me. Fantastic work so timely as well. Sage. There was ever a time when the U. S needs to hear your voice on 11 which is a spinal tap reference, he writes.

"Atmospheric rivers. So you have this river that that sort of? I'm picturing it actually the in the story that you did I'm thinking of a river, that's actually certain number of miles wide certain number of miles deep. It stretches out into the Pacific, and then carries all this moisture aimed just flows into California and drops all that all that rain there. That's essentially, correct. These these atmospheric rivers are usually a couple hundred kilometers wide, but can be a couple thousand kilometers long, and as they can carry in in the air above your head as much as twenty times the water. That's in the Mississippi River at the mouth. Twenty nine. It's a phenomenal amount of water, and it's all in the form of water vapor above your head. So it's really kind of amazing to think about and and is global warming going to exacerbate this. All available evidence suggests that the answer is. Yes. And this is one of those cases brothers actually pretty high confidence because model projections are consistent with survey shins, which is also consistent with pretty basic theory. And that basic theory is simple enough that I'll just take a moment to explain it here, essentially as temperatures increase the amount of water, vapor that the atmosphere can hold increases exponentially. So as even as temperature increases relatively slowly, the amount of potential water, vapor in the atmosphere increases much faster than temperature. So as you evaporate. More water you allow for the the the ceiling or the upper limit on the amount of moisture in these atmospheric rivers to increase, and so you don't necessarily increase the amount of precipitation all the time, but you definitely increase the maximum potential precipitation that can fall out of these sorts of systems reflate, oh, this is science Friday from WNYC. Studios. Talking with Daniel Swain climate, scientists here in California you visit California. I'm in San Francisco where everybody talks about waiting for the big one. And they mentioned the big one is going to be an earthquake. But you don't hear many people talking about the big one being a flood that could fill up the central valley are people beginning to talk about. Yeah. I think the comparison to the earthquake hazard in California is an apt one. And actually the contingency planning exercise conducted by the US Geological Survey in the state of California a few years ago actually referred to a repeat of eighteen sixty two like, flooding, California as Californians quote other big one the original dig one being a large magnitude earthquake and the state the state assessment essentially found that that are repudiating sixty two flood could actually be economically. And in terms of the statewide disruption far worse than a large earthquake in Los Angeles or San Francisco and could cause upwards of three quarters of a trillion dollars in damages, and that's a pretty sobering statistic. And the other really sobering aspect of this is that a lot of these damages would occur in California's most important economic region. The central valley where there's so much agriculture the San Francisco area where Silicon Valley generates so much economic activity, and of course, Los Angeles region home to Hollywood and lots of other industry, all of these places are are locations that would be very hard hit. So I think there there is increasing interest in recognition in the hazards posed by a really big flood event. But I think in certain circles, it's still overshadowed by other risks everyone in California knows about earthquakes and many people prepare seriously for them and increasingly people are really aware of the wildfire risk. And that's that's so awareness. I think that has grown due to some really tragic events in the last couple of years, but we don't have as much recent experience with these really large flood events. And I think that does mean that it's it's it's a little bit. It's a little bit more abstract for a lot of people than some of these other risks that were more familiar with. I think what might make it abstract to people is that we just. Came out of a a huge drought in California. Right. And now we're talking about a huge flood in California. Is that the future we go from one extreme to the other? Yeah. It's absolutely. The case that California has recently had a lot of drought and a lot of wildfire. So so scarcity of water has been more on the news than than overabundance. But that is in fact, what we expect California's future to look like where even if even if we don't see a tremendous change in the average annual precipitation as part of the world, we do expect to see increasingly dramatic swings from one extreme to the other from very wet to very dry conditions and then back in the other direction, and that does present some real challenges because it suggests the first of all we can't you don't wanna focus too much on just on average precipitation metric because it's not really telling us much about what's happening. A lot of the time with the drought and flood risk. But it also means that managing water scarcity or managing flood risk becomes more challenging because we have to deal with ever greater extremes on opposite ends of the spectrum. And this is. Essentially the future that we expect to see in California warmer almost all of the time. But both simultaneously wetter in some years and dryer in others. And when you say challenging that means the m word money, right? How do we prepare extreme? It's it's certainly a inexpensive challenge to address. But but it is also practically speaking even to know. In in in the ideal world where money was no object. Exactly what we would want to do. Because some folks say, well, of course, the obvious solution is to build more dams to store more water in the wet years. But there's a number of issues with that approach one of which I think is sort of highlighted by the risks were currently talking about in terms of the risk of catastrophic failure of some of these big important pieces of infrastructure, given a big enough storm.
