What does it mean when water is traded as a commodity?

"I'm jordan heath rawlings. This is the big story. Diane dupont is a professor in the economics department at brock university. She is the co author of through our fingers how handed fails to capture the value of its top asset. Hello professor dupont hydrogen. How are you. i'm doing well. Can you start. Maybe for people to whom this came as kind of a shock when the news broke a little while ago. How did we end up with water. Futures trading on stock market so as you mentioned Water futures started trading on the chicago mercantile exchange in the us in early january and Just let me explain. What if auto futures contract is of. It's this visit a an agreement to buy or sell an asset at a specified future date at a pre specified price and typically. What happens with future contracts. Not water contracts will come back to that set. What would typically happen with. Enormous futures contract is at the future date. The exchange takes place the seller pays the price to the buyer and the buyer hands over the asset typically physical asset to the cellar with water futures. This isn't what happens. Water is not physically transacted on this water futures exchange rather water futures contracts are settled financially in other words dollars exchange at the end of the period so no actual physical transfer water from buyer to a seller takes place. And i think it's important that people understand the distinction between this water futures market where these contracts which are essentially contracts in prices and how prices are going to change in the future Take place so distinction between trading in futures contracts and trading in actual water. And they're different. Yeah i'd love to know how it works. And when the headlines say you know water is now being traded in futures on the what water are we talking about. So we're not talking about any water. We're talking about dollars. Well we are talking about riots. We are talking about what so. Let me let me explain there in fact if you will. This is a simplification in fact to kind of markets. Exchanges that are taking place on the one hand. There is the real physical trading in water. Which has been by the way taking place in california for over thirty years so so water actually traits physically in california and this is in fact the the underlying physical market that is being reflected in the the water futures contracts that we just spoke about so for over thirty years. We've had water trading taking place in california and what we do that it's because there's a lot of variability in water availability over the season often mismatch between what is needed and win at wear and so what has happened is that we have in the us california sellers who are willing to essentially transfer a physical quantity of the water over which they have rights to fire. Essentially there are groups of people in california who've had water rights or essentially entitlements to use water pre nineteen fourteen so these are very special kinds of water rights and they basically give the owner the right to take water on on their land now there are other types of water rights in california call. Ripe -tarian rights and these are rights to use the flow of water. That passes over your land so if your land is adjacent to a stream to a river to lake quite often people have these so called ripe perry and writes in california recognizes seats so these two kinds of rights essentially that people have to effectively sell water so their water sellers there are water buyers and as i said for over thirty years. We've actually had trades that have been taking place between buyers and sellers now the volume actual trading is pretty small. It's about four percent of all of the water that's used in the state so and most of the trading that takes place is within the same county or region so th water isn't going very far away from where it

Trump Rule Allows Natural Gas Transport By Rail In Dense Areas

"The us produces so much shale gas it needs to find new markets overseas. The trump administration has approved moving a liquefied form of the gas by rail. But some say that is too dangerous. Susan phillips of member station. whyy reports on a route. That would be one of the longest in the country. The guests will go first to a new plant in northeast. pennsylvania where refrigeration units will chill it too negative two hundred and sixty degrees fahrenheit. That's how it goes from a guest to a liquid. The part of the plan that scares a lot of people is the transport two hundred miles by truck or rail through some of the most densely populated areas of the east coast to a planned export terminal in new jersey. Vanessa keegan lives nearby with her family including three year old. Theo thank you want to take a picture. Okay you gotta get mommy ipad. We take another picture right. Era go railcars. Full of highly flammable liquefied natural gas or lng would roll about a block and a half away from keegan's home a daycare center sits right at the company gate so they want special permits to transport them right there. That train track. You could skip on down to in about a minute and a half and that terrifies me. This project is part of a larger push to export natural gas last summer. The trump administration changed long-standing federal policy to allow rail transport of ellen g anywhere in the country fifteen states including pennsylvania and new jersey challenged the move saying it puts people's lives at risk in this rust belt reason of new jersey. The export project does have support from building trade unions and powerful state lawmakers including assemblyman. John bursa kelly. He says grandfather worked at a former dupont plant on the site of the planned export terminal. That's will create jobs as it once did contribute to tax base as wants to be an important economic driver for people to make a living in fear families. I says safety issues should be raised and addressed but he says railcars carry much more hazardous materials through the region every day. Ray mentzer is a chemical engineer at purdue university who spent his career on ellen g projects for exxon mobil he says specially designed containers have a good safety record but he says transporting the guests through densely populated areas increases the risk if there's a leak. It's not flammable until it's vaporized but it's going to bait rise pretty damn quickly and then it's going to seek an ignition source. Believe me it will find an ignition source. Pretty darn readily mentor says. A vapor cloud would definitely catch fire. If i was at a town meeting and i lived there i would want to know. Just what routes are you going to us right now. The exact roots are unclear. Multiple attempts to reach the developers of the project. New fortress energy went on answered if the overseas export terminal gets built. None of the guests will go to power new jersey homes instead the state is planning a large coastal wind farm off atlantic city to help new jersey reach the goal of all clean energy by twenty fifty

"dupont" Discussed on WBT Charlotte News Talk

"For DuPont by DuPont Company for its employees, its customers. Fascinating and two were built by completely a different entity that we probably don't have time to get into. But I get into it in my book, but there was a summer camp there. And there was a summer camp had nothing to do with DuPont. It was just happened to be next door and you know, and what is a camp without awake, And so they built the largest lake like Julia and another smaller lake. And, uh, this was a private camp. And at some point the owner got tide of this mission. And so the land to DuPont Company Way before DuPont ever thought of selling it to the forest. So now we've got five weeks. We have two cemeteries. Why? Because obviously they were people living there before DuPont Company came in to buy the land. And, uh so there well maintained by the Forest Service and by the By the descendants. But we've got two names, cemeteries and less of other stuff. What is an airstrip doing in the middle of a forest? Read the book Got to say it. Speaking of the book, We have the author right here, Danny Bernstein. She's an author, Hiker Trail advocate, and we're talking about her new book, DuPont State Forest, or We've got those at Jesse Brown so you can get him wherever you may be buying books. It is available. Hey, Danny. Really quick. I need t to talk about this. We've talked about hiking and riding your bikes. You mentioned the lakes. How does DuPont Forest work? I mean, do we park our car? And then you're walking in or biking in our boats or what kind of boats are allowed on those legs? Any imagine nothing. Motorized is allowed. Well, I don't think motorized boats are allowed. But I have seen plenty of boats. And how do they bring them in when they are now? These both carts because I've asked these guys the same question. How did you get this in here, and they were both caught. That people just drag? Yes. Um, we have the DuPont Forest has access areas, which means you parked there. Six except Sirius. But you're not talking in front of a waterfall. You're not talking in front of a lake. You have to get there by your own power. And for boaters and fishermen. They devised these carts, which they didn't divide by now. You can't get them anyplace and they drag them in. And believe me, there are no crowds on those lakes. I was there last week, and there was two boats at leg Julia fare far, parts of the moral is, if you could get it in there, you can use it. We invite everybody to check out Danny's book, DuPont Forest, a history if you like books, if you like hiking, if you like a wonderful gym in North Carolina. From industrial site to outdoor treasure. This book from Arcadia Publishing in the History Press is for you. If you're a movie lover, you may learn about some of the features of Pot forest that were featured in movies such as The Hunger Games and the Last of the Mohicans. Amongst others. Dani Burns Stain is great to be reunited with you here on the Carolina outdoors. Thank you for spending time with me and our listeners. Well, thank you so much for inviting me, Bill. It's always a pleasure to be to talk to you live or on the radio. Thank you so much. This is Bill Barty and the Carolina outdoors.

Big Oil Evaded Regulation And Plastic Pellets Kept Spilling

"Plastic pellets have been spilling into oceans and rivers. The world over where birds and fish eat them. They are the building blocks of all plastic melts 350 of them. You get a yogurt cup 1000 gets you a water bottle. But an NPR and PBS frontline investigation found the oil and plastic industry has long known there an environmental problem. NPR's Laura Sullivan brings us this story about how the oil in plastic industry evaded regulation. Despite decades of spills. You probably haven't spent a lot of time standing on train tracks looking at your feet. We're looking at the edge of a highway outside of plastic manufacturer. If you did, there's a good chance you'll see them little plastic pellets. This is Kocsis Creek, and we're looking at fresh pellets. It has fallen out of the Terps. Ronnie hammering is standing on state Road 35 in Southeast Texas, rising four square miles. Behind him is the petrochemical plant, Formosa Plastics. And they're not just here. There over there. They're important Lakha. You're gonna find him down the road Hand looks not an anti plastic environmentalist. He's a former supervisor who worked to Formosa for 25 years, And while he worked there, he says he was told to cover up spills of classic pallets. I want you to put down a certain number. You know what I'm saying? They want to keep it love. So So you line so would you like That's my job. That's my bread and butter, so I got to do what they think. I got a family. What's striking about standing outside Formosa and finding pellets? 100 yards from the plant's edge is that last year for most agreed to pay $50 million to settle a lawsuit in which it agreed to zero discharge of pellets. And yet, here they are and down in the creek, where the plant drains thousands more. Ah federal judge called Formosa, a serial offender for most of says it's working to improve its containment systems. But Formosa is just one of thousands of companies that either make or use plastic pellets in the United States. The oil and plastic industry says it doesn't have a problem, Officials told me for most of it was simply a quote bad actor, while leading companies like Exxon and Chevron recently told shareholders that at their dozens of facilities worldwide Either lose, not a single pellet or just two sandwich bags full. And here's how they say they've done it. Thanks again for signing on the operation Clean Sweep Operation Clean Sweep is a voluntary program the industry came up with in 1991. Companies that joined watch videos and promised to keep pellets from spilling from plant truck ships and rail cars. There's no data required. No numbers, nothing public. The operation Clean sweep is truly making a difference. Together, we can achieve zero pellet flake and proud of us. The industry says it's been a success. Pellet containment is incredibly important to our members. Steve Russell was until recently the vice president of plastics for the American Chemistry Council, which jointly runs the program, Nobody wants plastic in the environment. And if it still happens, and if we're gonna assume it's an accidental release, then it will be reported and remediation steps could be taken. Formosa is an operation Clean sweep member. So I asked to former workers and Ronnie Hamrick about it. I have no idea what you're even talking about. I've never heard it. There's evidence the industry does, in fact, have a pellet problem. Recent spills on beaches in Louisiana in South Carolina and studies show pellets are contaminating oceans, killing birds and fish and carrying toxins through rivers. There's also evidence the industry has known about this problem all along. In 2005, the industry participated in a study of 10 pellet plants. It found pellets washed away in heavy rain at every single facility and called Operation Clean sweep. Inadequate. But even long before that, there's a memo buried inside thousands of documents left over from old industry lawsuits. It was written in March. 1991 Thean Mysteries Trade Association warns top executives from Exxon, Chevron, Dow DuPont and others. But the EPA have recently found pellets to be quote ubiquitous in the environment. Regulation and permits are likely coming, the memo says. Unless they act quickly, it may still be possible to institute voluntary programs to address the pellet issue, it says. Unless this occurs, it is likely EPA will act independently. Then, just four months later, we developed a program that was called Operation Clean Sweep. Lou Freeman was a vice president at the time for the trade association, then called the Society of the Plastics industry. I don't recall any discussions. But quantitatively measuring the success of the program. It was being measured really about who is participating that what the results were, so it was a voluntary program without any metrics. Yeah, I would like to think that they were also doing it because it was the right thing to do. But I'd also be naive if I didn't think that much of the motivation was was governed by, you know. Keeping the regulators off our back today. The EPA doesn't regulate pellets and in the almost 30 years since, the agency told NPR it has brought just 10 Clean Water Act enforcement cases against facilities accused of spilling pellets. How would anyone really know if pellets were leaking? If you head down to the Gulf of Mexico pellet manufacturers like Chevron Phillips say they're not. I can tell you that. It's not a problem here at Chevron Phillips, we have almost no Let's leaving our sights. Jim Bakker is the

Cleve Jones: Queer Spaces After COVID-19

"The reality is that the Gayborhood are going away. So, if you look at San, Francisco's Castro district or Seattle's Capitol Hill or Washington DC's Dupont circle or boys town in Chicago West Hollywood or anywhere you want to look lavender Heights in Sacramento wherever you look where there's a defined gay neighborhood. It's not just a place where there's bars though bar life has always been an important part of our culture. It's where very important things happen. I is political power. When we are concentrated in specific precinct gives us the power to elect our own public office the the power to defeat our opponents, the power to pass legislation that directly affects our lives in our wellbeing. As we are dispersed. We lose that power. Another super important part of it was the cultural vitality look at all the amazing stuff that's come out of West Hollywood that's come out of my neighborhood I mean it's no coincidence that the rainbow flag and the First Gay Synagogue and the First Gay Film Festival and the Aids Memorial Quilt and the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence all were born in the Castro because there's that magic that happens when creative people when choreographers and filmmakers dancers and deejays and painters. Are All in that same area and I. Know that collaboration can occur very effectively online but there's nothing like the magic of face to face contact close proximity for that cultural vitality, and then the third thing that's at risk are the specialized social services for our most vulnerable population. So. Whether we're talking about people like myself who are getting old long term survivors of HIV or queer kids trans kids who were fleeing trump's America where do they go? They can't come to the Castro a little crappy studio apartment in the Castro is going to cost you twenty, five, hundred dollars a month. So this is the reality that nobody's really quite talking about that that community that has given so much and strengthened us in inspired US moved. US forward. Being threatened and there's many factors technology. Many. People will say, Oh, well, we can live anywhere. We want. No, you can't. Tell me that try it. You know go to Duluth and walk down main street and hold hands no offense to duluth or any other city. You Might WanNa try doing that outside of a gayborhood. So we need these these spaces they're important and we need to figure out what's our next move? Do you have a solution. There's no easy solution but yeah, when people say oh, cleave. Cities Change well. Thank you for that brilliant observation. Yes. Of course, it has changed but we want to. Be Thinking about that change and the big factor is that cities have changed in a way. That's profoundly new. For generations since the industrial revolution, the cities were the place where refugees went immigrants, Bohemians, counterculture people, artists, homosexuals, and all these people of all these different backgrounds and ethnicities genders would you know create this these cauldrons of creativity and and they would climb their way up the economic ladder move out to the suburbs and that was really accelerated in the Post Warrior the nineteen fifties, the nineteen sixties, nineteen seventies, the phenomenon of white flight. So when I got to San Francisco, the population of that city had been declining steadily since the end of World War Two and we were able to go into these neighborhoods that had been largely abandoned by the working class immigrants that had built them originally. And create what we created I on Polk Street. Then on Castro and folsom street hate streets you know he's really vibrant communities. These are now some of the most expensive neighborhoods in the world. So the district that gave us Harvey Milk. is now inhabited increasingly by wide heterosexual gendered millionaires when you arrived in San. Francisco, you had a sleeping bag and a couple of shirts and forty two dollars and you were welcomed into this guy's home. You would never met who was not expecting you. It was an address you have from a friend and there was a safe place to live and to get on your feet. Even, if it's not as San Francisco, like that mentality is so unique. I think that's pretty much now partly because it's just so difficult to survive. So the young people I meet in their early twenty S. You know these and of course San Francisco, it's all tech And there's a lot of anger towards the tech invaders but I have a lot of empathy and. Real concern for them because first of all, most of them are working sixty seventy hours a week. They have no job security. There would never use the the phrase exploited workers to describe themselves but are blanche you are but I think also back then and especially in San Francisco it was still Kinda Hippie dippy. And it was very counterculture. It was very communal. And everybody was kind of expected and really encouraged to contribute in some way. You didn't necessarily have to be all that good at what you did, but you needed to do something whether it was a drag show or video or film or A. Poetry contest or something there was A. There was a real nurturing of people's creative pulses and a lot of support for there was so many places I knew where if I was hungry I just show up and there would be every night. There would be a communal potluck dinner. There were probably six or seven of those households within a few blocks of where I was living on Castro Street. So I never went hungry.

Feelings is the vertigo nausea. In fact, she spent one night in the E. R by herself. It was scary going through that experience alone, and thankfully, it was not as bad as it could have been losing a month of training When you're in marathon training makes running a race like this all the more harder in her original goal of setting a new personal Record is out the window now and not just because the virus still impacts her stamina. Two months later, the crowds that typically line the course matter to its those community members in the Marines, that everyone that's there on the streets cheering you on that really make you push through. To the finish. She's also going to run to show that in the end, we can overcome the pandemic in the really harm that it's caused it and it might take longer than you expected. But it's possible to get back to where you were before. Sullivan is back at work now, and she continues to train for the race. She recently donated plasma again, and when she runs this Sunday, the day of the race would have normally run. After all, she's been through thinking about it all has her feeling good again. Who knows? After this? Maybe The antibodies will give you some superpowers or something. One day that you know is you know his hope. John Doman W T O be news.

Trump vs. Biden on the environment—here’s where they stand

"His plan says he do that by investing and disadvantaged communities holding polluters accountable. I talked to Michelle Roberts with the Environmental Justice Health Alliance about this, and she has a long history with Biden because she's actually from Delaware, his home state. And she says Historically, Biden wasn't always Overly supportive when it came to dealing with polluters like DuPont over communities like hers. Hey, was a filibuster for the political economy that was running the great state of Delaware. Does that make sense? But Robert says she's met with Biden since and she thinks his views have evolved. She supports him, but it's going to be important, she says. If he's elected to hold him accountable for all the things that he's promising to do now. NPR's

Climate Change Is A Top Campaign Issue At Least For Democrats

"This year climate change is a top campaign issue at least for Democrats. Yesterday, we looked at president trump's record. On the issue today, we'll explore toe Biden's plan, which is the most ambitious climate proposal. Any presidential candidate has ever laid out. We've got NPR's Nathan rods and NPR's Jeff Brady both of our climate team with us. Hi, guys good morning. So. Let's just the obviously our Joe Biden and Donald Trump do not exactly agree on climate? Change. Absolutely yeah I think that's a fair way to put it. President trump repeatedly rejects climate science and generally he depicts regulations to address climate. Change is bad for the economy and bad for jobs Joe Biden calls climate change existential threat to our health, our economy, our national security, the whole thing but he's also trying to frame it right now as an opportunity you know when? Donald. Trump thinks about climate change he thinks hoax. When I think about I think jobs. Good paying union opposite put. To work. Building a stronger more. Climate resilient nation I mean nate. That sounds great. But has he laid out a plan for how he would actually make that happen. Yes, and it is a lot Hewitt invest money for one climate. Change is part of his economic recovery plan for the pandemic. But he's also says he'll do executive actions right? Other Gate. He says he's GONNA re enter the Paris climate agreement and put the US back in the global climate conversation He's talking about conserving land for biodiversity stopping offshore drilling in the Arctic. Methane from existing oil and gas tell me when you want me to stop. But he's also putting money towards climate adaptation measures to make communities more resilient to sea level rise flooding hurricanes fires. You know the type of things we've experienced over the last few months and he's also promising massive investments in green energy and infrastructure. This is where the. Jobs part of what he's promising comes in. So that means more solar more wind high speed rail, electric car chargers all with the goal of zeroing out carbon pollution from our electrical sector by twenty, thirty five and making the country carbon neutral. So it's contributing anymore to climate change by twenty fifty. And I mean I know a lot of campaigns I mean the rhetoric is aspirational, right but even so I mean by twenty fifty shifting the entire US economy to be carbon neutral to sounds like a massive undertaking is he going to be able to accomplish that Jeff? You know most of the experts I've talked with thinking is possible. The plan includes a lot of executive actions. The Biden says, he would take right away some of the nature mentioned. It also this plan requires new laws passed by Congress to create policies for meeting that overall goal. Now, that's going to require a democratic majority in the Senate most likely I talked with Scott Siegel. He's a partner with the law firm Bracewell, which represents a lot of energy clients including fossil fuel companies, and you can imagine that they have a lot at stake care. He thinks guidance climate plan is realistic. He says, it includes both regulations and incentives for people. In Industries to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and I think when a plan has both and doesn't rely only on the carrot or the stick, it's a sign of maturity in approaching these issues. Siegel likes that it leaves room for some fossil fuels with carbon offsets and capture, and he points out that the electric power sector is already on its way to meeting that interim 2035 call some of those companies in utilities are setting net zero carbon goals all on their own. Yeah, and that's an important point. I talked to Karl Frisch who worked at the US Department of Energy under three administrations including trump's she's now at the Rocky Mountain Institute you know and I asked her if she thinks it could all be done by Biden alone if he gets elected. No. So to get where we need to go on climate in the United States to reduce emissions and build a sustainable economy, it takes action by the executive branch action by Congress. And action by state leaders, city leaders, business leaders on the ground, and she says, you know a lot of these actions are already happening at the local level. So a Biden administration would be smart to try to build on that existing momentum. So something we hear president trump attack Joe Biden on a lot is fracking fracking for natural gas. The president alleging that Joe Biden wants to ban it. Let's just clear this up Jeff Does Joe Biden WanNa. Ban fracking. No, he doesn't want to ban fracking. He has repeatedly said that he would not ban all fracking just new fracking on federal land and when trump says that it's aimed at voters and energy producing swing states like Pennsylvania, which actually has very little federal land but that's still a point of contention for for Biden, with mini climate activists who say the country should stop all fracking and keep all fossil fuels in the ground to slow climate change. So. What about the politics of climate change you know I mean we know what the facts are that it is happening that humans have contributed to it as well. But what about the politics of climate change because we know for Republicans it's an incredibly divisive issue where do Democrats stand on Biden's proposals? Well, polling indicates a majority of registered voters in the US view climate change as a real threat to the country, and when you look at Republicans climate change is actually a lot less divisive you get. But in terms of Democrats a recent poll by Pew found that more than two-thirds of Joe Biden supporters sit climate change is very important to them. So Biden's. Plan is not as ambitious as what some Progressive Democrats want to see it is not the green new deal despite what the president repeatedly says, but it is more ambitious than what Joe Biden had initially proposed. So for example, his plan now includes an environmental justice component which would aim to address the fact that people of color are disproportionately affected by pollution climate change and have been for a long time. His plan says he'd do that by investing in disadvantaged communities pulling polluters accountable I talked to Michelle Roberts with the Environmental Justice Health Alliance about this, and she has a long history with Biden because she's actually from Delaware, his home state and she says historically. Always overly supportive when it came to dealing with polluters like dupont over communities like hers he was a Filibuster for the political economy that was running the great state of Delaware. Does that make sense BA- Roberts says she's met with Biden since and she thinks his views have a she supports him but it's going to be important. She says if he's elected to hold them accountable all the things that he's promising to do now. NPR's nate wrought and NPR's Jeff. Brady, thank you for your reporting. Thank you. Thank

Sell Me Your Climate Bombs

"Okay. So there are countless outdated old refrigerant tanks scattered around the country and Tim and Gabe say that the problem is you cannot just dump these tanks in the trash you wanted to take it to a dump, their knocking ticket they'll say, no, no that stuff's like hazardous material we don't want here. Material. The only thing you're allowed to dump, there is the empty tank when it's all gone. So you're really stuck it sits there on your shelf you have no use for and it's eventually going to leak through these cylinders cans into the atmosphere. If you're a professional like an auto mechanic or an H. back installer or if you're just one of those tinkers who hangs out at autozone, you might have one of these bad band canisters and. You could pay to safely dump the chemical out, but only a few places in the US will even do it and it's expensive. That's why they're canisters of this stuff just sitting in old garages rusting away and leaking leaking a greenhouse gas that is thousands of times more potent than carbon dioxide and getting rid of refrigerant is one of the most important things we can do to address climate change according to a leading climate solutions organization called drawdown. which is why Tim, and Gabe have come all the way to the gas station in middle of Nowhere Illinois to meet a man in a red jeep renegade named Geoffrey. Geoffrey. Geoffrey is standing next to a two foot tall canister refrigerant that people might recognize by its common name Freon. Jim In fact recognizes the brand name Dupont igloo. So what does this is? igloo Freon twelve. So where did you What did you find the material? Jeffrey says a friend gave it to him years ago Kim asks him if he was in the Business Jeffrey no but my friend was he said he got the refrigerant because he figured maybe he'd use it in the systems of antique cars that he was thinking about rebuilding, but he never got around to it. Nineteen years. Business on shelf shop. How did you hear US oft up on my facebook one day At this out of the blue, a facebook ad popped up that said, we pay good money for old refrigerant Jeffrey. I have some of that answered the Ad, and now here we are Tim and Gabe take a sample from Geoffrey. They do a couple of calculations where they add up the weight of all the refrigerant and have Geoffrey signs informs you're signing here that your. This is your material. Now you're handing over to us. You're also a test saying that it was sourced within the United States and not the US government or a native American tribe. Correct correct. Okay. And then gables out a wad of bills and starts flowing them one by one into Jeffrey's hand. Material. So. Shop. The Money. Except for the signing of the receipt and everything, it feels almost like a drug deal cash transaction in this dusty remote middle of nowhere. Tim wouldn't tell US exactly how much changed hands but he said it was in the low hundreds and yet this is Tim Gabes legitimate business. Their company is called trade water and they make pickups like this of all sizes from a one pound can the size of a spray paint bottle tweet forty, thousand pound job they did a while back where they vacuumed the refrigerant out of an old industrial cooling system after a bit of Chitchat Tim and Gabe wrap up with Geoffrey Geoffrey tells them. If he hears anyone else with spare refrigerants, he'll send them their way. Right on. Jeffrey how is that? That was painless was. Is If you find anymore you know where to call welcome you John Here In Europe somebody's got one of the. Transaction. Takes care. Did you hear that Tim just said we'll take good care of it for you. Yeah. Well, me and my how to Save Planet Co host we're listening in on this deal. Of course, we're on facetime with them and my co host name is Hannah Elizabeth Johnson. She's a scientist and she and I asked him and Gabe about that particular comment and you said we'll take good care of this for you. Because you you aren't GonNa take good care of it. You'RE GONNA destroyed. Exactly. Probably not We, don't really. We don't really talk about that very much. Yeah. They transfer all the gas from the little tank they collect into a huge tank that looks kind of like a missile and then they drive that missile looking tank to a fancy destruction facility. Essentially, an incinerator permited hazardous waste. Rotary, King Incinerator. So you burn it we burn you burn. Your like setting it on fire and we are. Do you see gas in flames? Is that what it looks like? We don't generally watch it being burned. View, it's see to their view window flame. Yeah. A big bright flame incinerating refrigerants at this special facility actually neutralizes most of the dangerous stuff ninety, nine, point, nine, nine percent of the bad stuff doesn't go out into the atmosphere time bomb diffused, which if you're trying to address global warming, this is a fantastic thing right after all this is Tim and Gabes mission. So, why don't they tell their customers about it? Well Gabe says, their customers aren't always on board with that mission. In fact, a lot of them don't even believe global warming is real. This is A. Farce that's been pulled by the EPA or a U.. N. and so people will hang up and say I'm not going to sell to you. I'm GonNa find someone else who's GonNa use this the way it was meant to be used. Now some people are really attached to their to their refrigerant. So now generally. Advertised we're gonNA destroy because we just never know somebody that will make people uninterested in the deal. That's interesting because it seems like. Is My co host I oughta it's all over your website, right? Like your website makes it pretty clear why you're doing this and if people are finding you through facebook ads they. Already know are you on the trade water website? Yeah. So. When we do these transactions, we actually use a different name doing business. Call refrigerant finders. Go to refrigerant finders website. You will see a different framing of what we do. The homepage of the treated water website has the words reducing the world's carbon footprint in big letters huge font over background of leafy Green Fernley. The refrigerant find a website there no leaves there's no mention of climate change. It just says we buy your old refrigerant and has pictures of men in work boots carrying around rest canisters.

Smoke starting to clear out; Seattle air quality improving

"Turning to the weather. Tonight, some people in western Washington are finally getting a breath of fresh air. Because the air quality is improving across the Puget Sound region. Check out this map from the state Department of Ecology. It shows the air quality in our area improving ranging from good To unhealthy for sensitive groups. Let's get over to Shannon O'Donnell Mohr Rain this weekend, Shannon and what a breath of fresh air literally right so nice to see it. We've got our smoke cleaner at this point rolling through. It started last night. It continues right now, The biggest left over. Part of this is going to be the heavy rain at times. It's not the drizzle. We had a couple of days ago that just served a soap that smog you later make it sticky. This is the real deal that will help clean things out. Also the important factor the wind. We needed something to stir something up. So you can see that's happening out there tonight as well. With the breeze picking up the chance for lightning and hail, which had been pretty dominant here earlier in the game has lifted for the most part, everything settling down. You can see that we have a couple of slightly heavier showers, but nowhere near to the intensity we did earlier this evening. Most of those around Montesano and then back between two common Olympia. You've really had some heavy rain there around like still coming back toward DuPont Lacey into the north and also a pocket of leftover heavier showers around Stanwood and Camino Island. Those continue to wind down to so often on showers here for the hour by hour forecast that will take us past midnight and into this last weekend of summer. I'll let you know if that summer blue sky and sunshine will return in the rest of my forecast

"We're talking like half a congress here. They have to strong demands to save their local newspapers. One shift all federal advertising to local news. We're talking like the ads for like the census or public health. And you know stuff that. The government is sending out an advertise instead of advertising on facebook. Advertise on the pony time second they want to incentivize advertising with local news from companies that are now accepting bailout funds from the government if you accept taxpayer funding for your pizza joint. You better advertise for that pizza joint in your local newspaper now. Jack and I WANNA spring a little context on this story and that's why the Ad Pacalypse is only the latest chapter in what's gone wrong for the news. Industry historically classified ads. We're actually the biggest revenue source for local newspapers. Let you have been for sale. Like new made western Pennsylvania Fifty Dollars Obio willing to negotiate on that fifty dollars now those classified ads pretty much got replaced one hundred percent by craigslist. Now those classified ads were the business model for local news but more recently they focused more on just advertising. Jenner leg buds Roller Derby. We can get a skate a date or figure eight. It's a wonderful thing. Now those have gone to Google and facebook because their data allows advertisers to target aggressively. Facebook can make sure that only the right people see that ad for Buds Roller Derby. If you're buzzed Roy. Derby Yolly one at target eighteen year old single skaters who happen to love eighties music. That's understandable so true now. Another option for local news to make money is subscription but subscriptions are pretty tough. Because we've all pretty much been trained to get content and especially news for free and now we're just taking it for granted so pretty much every way. Local news was supposed to make money is gone. Add that up half of America's newsroom reporters have been laid off since two thousand eight and then adding like some aggressive injury to some personal insult. Local news is suffering so much there. Basically being treated like charity cases Google and facebook donated hundreds of billions of dollars to the local news industry which is cool but also sad so true. So Jack what's the takeaway for our buddies over and big local news? This is the time for news is business model to be redefined snacker. We looked at this thing. We brought out that whiteboard working remotely so there are two whiteboards at. We found two key options to save local news from the Internet. That basically destroyed its business. Model option yes government subsidies. Npr ALREADY GETS BBC arts gets it in the UK so why not extend this to local news option? B. Make big tech pay for it because big tech has lots of money and benefits from local news. This one is particularly interesting right now. We noticed that Australia recently passed a law requiring Google and facebook to pay news agencies when they have posts that they get ad revenue from that were originally stories by those news agencies. Think about it. According to the Pew Research Center Forty five percent of Americans get their news from facebook. I feel like just a person I think. At this point we could just say according to our buddy you as friends with but nick. Facebook makes money by surrounding that news on facebook on your wall with advertisements and Australia thinks that actual news should get an actual cut of the ad sales that facebook or Google is getting news. Business model needs to be redefined. Australia's model could set a precedent snack. As if you're running a snacks challenge time to turn around. Because we're a little past halfway done and watch out for that puddle. In the meantime four our third and final story chemical icon Dupont. Just gave us a really early update on what it's up to. It's making face masks. And that is the best thing that ever happened to it. And we're talking about not just Dupont. We're talking about the e I dupont deny more. It's a French character in Jane austen novel in My right. I'm sorry Mr Darcy. I can't get a gauge. I've committed myself to do porn. Wonderful Pride and prejudice rendition. Right there now. This is the old this company we have ever discussed between Jack and I on snacks daily. Bring me back to eighteen. O to the pride of Wilmington Delaware do Paul was making gunpowder a few decades later. They ended up supplying half of the gunpowder to the entire union army during the civil believable this company but today they're making everything from enzymes to the Military Vehicle Armor Jack. I know you're like me. You're kicking things off every Wednesday with an e bull. How about the probiotics in that thing where they come from made by do people all right? How about the LYCRA in that leisure? Wear Khakis that I know. You love to squat in made by Paul Worn by me right now jack. How about the Kevlar? Bulletproof Batman suit Mr Wayne. Can you tell us what's in that? You're kidding me. That can't be do Paul. It's do Paul and how about Styrofoam Styrofoam Kinda doesn't really fit macaroni. And yet the brand and the trademark both owned by Dupont Dupont was the largest chemical maker in the world until it merged with Dow Chemical Company which was also a huge company through and then the corporate finance people immediately split them up into three different. The all it's one. Plus one equals three. Actually scratch that entire man and one plus one and then divide it by three. If we're looking at Dupont right now now. It's all about one thing personal protective equipment and making one really big pivot. Dupont was making filters for heavy duty. Diesel engine but since diesel engines aren't getting made these days that resource is going straight to n ninety five masks and has matt suits the good old polyethylene. You can't touch it but it will save your life and they just gave us an early update on how the first quarter is gone. Turns OUT DUPONT is making ten million p. p. e. that's personal protective equipment garments a month energy-using factories across nine different countries. And Nick. Thank you for clarifying. What stands for because I've read it like fifty times in the past month but didn't actually know what it was until you just whenever I heard that term and always reminding me is some scary thing that used to be in bug spray that our moms were like down about pappy. We can't bite of it as BB. So Jack. What's the takeaway for our buddies over at Dupont. Dupont is a case. Study in the power of diversification smackers dupont auto and industrial division is doing horribly right now. Because you're not driving anywhere. You're not buying a car but it's material sales for things. Like in ninety five masks are sore. Lucky for Dupont. It owns not just a couple of not just a few not just a bunch but in insane variety of different operations in a whole different bunch of sectors. We didn't need our buddies at Pugh to figure out how many industries product lines and brands. Dupont as we check out their website and we counted thirty two and then we had to like click next page. Next results boost shows how aggressively diversification is getting this company to survive when one division for Dupont down the other division is up on the Flipside of Diversification Carnival cruises has cruise ships and they are in the business of cruises and doing just cruise ships. It can't even get a bailout for its one business. Cruise ships carnival could be bankrupt. Bound Dupont is pulling the pivot the power of diversification. Jack up the takeaways for over there. Antibodies at only and beyond me are coming to starbucks is forty three hundred Chinese location on. Your new product is a new behavior. It's good to have starbucks as your Schapper for second story. Local news is incredibly important during this crisis. But it's also struggling to make money so we see two ways to save local news government subsidies or big tech our third and final story Dupont automotive materials businesses debt. So it's focusing. Its attention on N Ninety Five Masks. Verse Vacation. It's like a downturn insurance see. Don't go bankrupt. These guys are a case. Study now time for our snack today. This one sent in by Matt Low from Boston Massachusetts. Who Got Birthday? Shout out on this pilots and that let us know that Alex his twin brother actually gave us the shoutout which means it was also Alex's birth. We're not doctors but we're pretty sure.

Back in the day seating was so packed. And Fenway that when someone stood up to order a beer everyone in the row had to stand up then everyone behind them to stand up to see manny hit home and then the rest of the sexual stand up and everyone in Boston as a sports fan is like notoriously on edge so that made even more frustration happen. This created a domino effect with section after section standing up rhythmic fashion. Looking like away by all worked out by the way shout out to principles of Marketing Classes at UCF University.

"Today? Ian I love it. I'm great. Thank you for letting me join today. Will when our producers reach out to me and they said we have Alexa coming on the show. I was so excited and grabbed my Amazon Echo. I started talking to it and then I found out that it was even better than the Technology Alexa. It is you and I'm so excited to talk about everything. That's going on. Technology and sustainability wise at Dupont. But before we get into that. How did you get started in technology in the first voice? Oh I've loved science and technology since I was a little girl you know I grew up in Chicago and nature was a big deal for me now I do. I was in the city of Chicago. So my version of nature was grasshoppers and firefly's that's about as good as it gets One of my early winds was in the Eighth Grade. I did a Rockstar. Science project called germs versus disinfectants. And it went all the way to the city of Chicago Science Fair which is a very big deal and I was one of the winners in eighth grade. And the reason that's important is it showed from really young age. I loved science. I loved everything about curiosity and solving problems. So I'm a nerd and a scientist from the very beginning. I also was a science fair winners. The I've never shared this on the podcast but I was also assigns for winter in sixth grade. We did test so my mom was a nurse so we got these like really cool. Petri trays and we did. Whether you just use water or you use soap or use antibacterial soap for washing your hands which is better. And you're not gonNA believe this antibacterial soap way better than just water. So I see we share a common bond who needs holidays at the end of the year when you spend time doing science fair projects when my mother was a saint and Mike put up so much with me on all that sort of stuff and being perfectionists around my little science project but No stuff like that is so important. And that's so cool to hear and so you ended up getting a PhD in Chemistry. Yes I have a PhD from Penn State and chemistry was the chosen path. Beyond the grasshoppers and so how? How do you blend science and technology together at in your role Well it's it's a perfect place to use science to make an impact and that's the reason I became. A scientist is the love of science. The love of curiosity it all comes down to solving big problems so just like your problem in the science. Fair was which disinfectant was best for you you know. That's the same approach Dupont that we take in solving big problems whether it's on can activity in mobility whether it's on healthy living whether it's on any other areas of Urbanism Safety Science and Technology Together including an emphasis on sustainability. That's really what it takes to develop solutions to these problems. So in Dupont. Most of our solutions for a brand new company by the way. I didn't I don't think I mentioned that yet. Ian But as of June of this year were the new Dupont coming out of a merger with Dow. And we're really excited to have a purpose. That is empowering the world with essential innovations to thrive in. You might say well. How do you do that? And it's all about science and Technology and innovation pointed at big world-scale problems so for Dupont. That's what really matters and that's why I'm really excited to spend so much time here as a scientist and as a leader. It's a great place to be. That is really exciting. And I was going to ask you about that because you know with this with the spinoff company. That's been around a long time and I'm sure everybody remembers the Dupont race card. That was my first. I feel like as a as a kid was in. It's a Jeff Gordon number twenty four. Yeah Jeff Gordon Number Twenty Four. I know I did. I remember that distinctly. I think I my dad has like a replica carpet But Yeah I think you know it's such a household name in such a household brand and company. I'm curious like how do you look at from technology standpoint taking a brand that so many people know and love and and you know looking to the future. You know Dupont. Spin around two hundred and seventeen years so I call us today. Two hundred seventeen year old startup and the reason that that's important probably important for the audience is it speaks to the ability to constantly reinvent to be relevant with what the problems are today so when we started off two hundred seventeen years ago the problem was. How do you make smokeless gunpowder? Well two hundred seventeen years later. We still have problems that require solving through science. Not that problem but there are other problems like how? Do we make sure that we can limit food. Waste by having food with longer shelf lives. How do we make sure that we can electrified vehicles to lower co two emissions and improve safety so from the beginning? Dupont's always been about using science and technology to solve the problems of the day. And you know every fifty or fifty years or every century we completely reinvent ourselves to make sure that we've got the right portfolio the right businesses and the right talent for today's problems and that's what I'm excited about. You know you might be thinking well. What are today's problems? And how do you know you're working on the right ones? Yesterday I was at the Bloomberg event in New York. And we launched our new sustainability goals for the new dupont and they speak a lot about innovation and the sustainability opportunities and challenges that innovation can solve based on the United Nations goals for sustainable development. So it's a fabulous roadmap and framework to say. What are the big problems of today? And how does Dupont point science and technology all of our talent to be able to deliver against them? So I think it's a really great recipe for success in it's proven to be timeless for a company. That's a couple of centuries old kind of feel like you have some weight on your shoulders with carrying a company of that type of legacy and pushing the pace of innovation. Do you ever kind of feel like You know the problem is the problems that are out there so large You know doing things like sustainable seaweed growing lettuce in space Doing all these like incredible things that you're doing that there's this kind of Wayne responsibility to society at large but also to all the employees that Dupont. Absolutely but I think it's humbling and it's one of the benefits of being a leader is that we can empower all of this talent. We can have followership within the company and honestly with our collaborators and our customers outside the company to make a difference. You know I think the problems of today feel big. But if we rewind the video twenty and thirty and forty and fifty years ago at the problems at that time felt big too. I think the difference today is the pace of change is so fast. We all feel this urgency. We're on overload from all of the information that we get that we need to sort of change the game on how we work and how we're even more effective so that's something. I think a lot about is in order to be even more effective into the future. What's the entrepreneurial spirit that we need? What kind of a culture do we need so that not only me but our teams don't feel overwhelmed with what we're trying to accomplish in rather wake up every day saying we got this right we can make an impact? We know how to point our science and our engineering and technology. So let's look at it as just a great opportunity to change the future. So that's what I try to do. Think about what's my role enabling that environment where everyone wakes up jumping out of bed saying it's going to be a great day. We lost to get done and were ready to do it. So let's take a step back and look at is the scope of your role as Chief Technology Sustainability Officer. What are the types of things that you're working on? How do you array the team? Are you working with internal employees technology? you know vetting technology and things like that internally. Are you working on product or you spending time with customers What's that what does that look like? I do all the things that you mentioned where I add the most value in the role is I spent time making sure and supporting our businesses to enable success to drive growth. Think of me is the growth champion of the company and the way that I do that as our businesses are super deep in the markets that we went in whether it's transportation or electronics or health. Care what I do is help. Stretch are thinking to not only. What do we do today? But what should we be doing in the future? What are the problems that are right around the corner that we should be tackling innovation solving now? So I spend time not only internally but externally with what I'll call those leading edge thinkers I try to be an attraction mechanism for folks to come together and say how do we work faster. How do we work on even bigger problems? And how do we make sure that we can incorporate sustainability into everything that we do sustainable thinking from the very front of the process into how we drive innovation but also sustainability from the way that we create value for our customers and for society? So a big part of my role is having thought leaders internally and externally that I can collaborate with that I can learn from and be inspired by. I don't know if you know this about me. But I was dupont. Customer Unknowingly Dupont customer. Because I was in the military not used. Kevlar every day. So I have long experiences with with with Kevlar and I kind of feel like. There's so many people and so many dupont products that people use every day and they're not aware of that. You know as chief technology and sustainability officer like how do you view you know that kind of that brand awareness and that you know making people understand? What are the things that you're working on? How are you pushing innovation? What are the products that are kind of solving that? Well Ian First of all. Thank you for your service to our country. I am always impressed when I meet with folks who have just given so much and really used the products. That Dupont makes to make a real difference. I spent ten years in. Kevlar actually I was in Richmond. Virginia which is our largest manufacturing site for Kevlar fiber. Oh no kidding. Yeah I spent ten years there. I was actually the operations manager for three and a half years every day. Making the product that went into helmets that went into vests and that went into armored vehicles to protect against IEP's so the most important thing for Dupont. It's not advertising. It's not just a brand. It's not talking about a product. It's about making sure that that product protects people like you against threats whether they're ballistic threats whether they're thermal threats. Whatever the threat is that you go home every day to your family and that you're safe so at the time one of the most precious letters handwritten letters that I got when I was in. Kevlar was from the mother of a warfighter and her son had been shot in the head and he had a Kevlar helmet on and he was fine and she thanked us and boy. That meant so much to me and it meant so much to the team who works every day to make sure that that product is always delivered on time on quality so you really hit a sprite spot with me with their. Yeah there's a I remember when we were in training. There's an image that they would share around that it was Essentially a bullet that like went into a Kevlar helmet and was like stopped. Like halfway through. And it's like this is why you wear your helmet. But I think there's so many things like that that I think Dupont touches that people don't necessarily realize and from an innovation standpoint and from an RND standpoint. Dupont is obviously spending tons of money on our in D. annually. It's something that you know to drive innovation you're working on an n no you're at the cutting edge. How do you look at developing those types of technologies like? What's your role in that? So we do spend a lot of money will invest almost a billion dollars which is about four percent of sales to make sure that we can be at the leading edge of innovation and every one of our markets in the way that we figure out how to focus that investment is by working closely in every market around. What are the trends? What are the jobs to be done?.
