"Do you think she'll give up? It depends on how desperate she is. I think she may give up now. She's going back towards the scene now. Primary threat no is. And that can be directly linked to climate change impacts, as well as hostel development, coastal armoring. So it is really a multi dimensional threat. I'm Connor Lennon and you're listening to the lid is on from the United Nations. This episode is the last now four part miniseries looking at the issues facing the marine environment surrounding the eastern Caribbean island nation of Barbados. And some of the projects that are trying to address the balance. In the last episode, we went into the water to see the successful efforts being made by an organization called corral, which, with support from the UN, is growing coral varieties in ocean nurseries and proving that, under the right conditions, it is possible to restore the reef. Another group receiving UN backing is the Barbados sea turtle project. A research and conservation organization which began in the 1980s at the university of the West Indies. It has been successful in restoring the turtle population on the island, despite a host of challenges. The group has received support from the small grants program of the global environmental facility which provides finance for several initiatives implemented by the UN development program. In the southwest of the island, there's a place called the boardwalk. This is an area full of restaurants and bars that come right up to the beach, a testament to the central importance of tourism to the barbadian economy. There I met Carlo Daniel, the project's field director who took me through the group's activities and explained why it's important to preserve sea turtles on Barbados. Sea turtles play a very well researched and recognized role in ecosystem maintenance and stabilization. Hartsville is in particular feed on sponge, which is in direct competition with coral for space on the reef, so they help to maintain our coral reefs. And any island which depends on white sandy beaches as well as natural wheat breaks that re create when we're affected by extreme weather events, knows the importance of the coral reef. So hawksbill turtles were quite close to extinction. So I think it was recognized globally around the late 1990s is also when the trade and torture shell, which is really hot. Spill shell was banned as well. So I think there was around that time a global recognition that we could not continue on the trajectory that we were following when it comes to hawksbills or we were going to lose the species. On the conservation side of things, we have a 24 hour hotline that we operate. This hot lane will operate 365 days a year. So even though the nesting season goes from the 1st of June to the 15th of November, every single day of the year we answer the hot lane, our sponsor hotline calls. Persons are able to call to report emergencies where adult turtles are hatchling turtles. Juveniles are in need of rescue. But they also call to report turtle sightings and to report tracks. And sometimes just to report things that they observe that they don't think is right. So they see certain types of activities on the beach, they may call to report those as well. In addition to the hot lane, we have patrol teams that man that hotline because we get a lot of calls. During the peak nesting season, we can get, I would say up to 15. Unique calls a night and there's still only 8 hours early in the night, so it can take quite a bit. So we have an amazing team of volunteers every year. And our team is really a really good composition because you have a nice mix of young people who are still in university. We have retirees who have a bit more time. And then we have persons who are working, but they've managed to find the time between their responsibilities and between their jobs to still come out and do what I believe they think is important work. So at Nate, we have three teams out. So in any 24 hour period from the 1st of June to the 15th of November, we have at least 8 persons working to answer hot lane calls. We standardize the patrol effort. So we have the same team of people on that beach for four months. Every single year, and they their objective is to walk the beach every hour from 7 30 p.m. to 4 a.m. in the morning. And to see and record every single turtle that comes up. So that at the end of the nesting season, we have, we know that we've seen hopefully like 95 to 99% of the turtle sat nested. Because our effort is consistent across years, then any fluctuation in the number of turtles that we're seeing is likely due to changes in the nesting population. Carlo Daniel field director of the Barbados sea turtle project. Sinéad Nichols is one of those volunteers Carla mentioned, and she spent many nights staying up patrolling the beaches and looking for turtles. Right now we are on the south coast border and as we're currently doing we are walking the beach to see if we see any turtle activity. You can see turtles along the south coast and the West Coast, but this is an area that one of the teachers that we patrol. So we will see any activity that we have. Interested in conservation and this is a way for me to be a part of it. I got interested in it through the university of the West Indies and then front time I started I enjoyed it so I think it's a passion that got me going. So you've saved lots of turtles. Yes. Even in a night I have released more than a thousand hashtags. Oh, well, in one night. Yes. Wow. One particular area of the beach, one time we got 800 hatchets. We had to try to get them to save air beach to release them. Barbados sea turtle project volunteer Shane Nichols. Carlo Daniel explained that whilst the project has had success in bringing up the turtle numbers, they're still at risk for a host of reasons. Primary threat, no. Is habitat loss. And that can be directly linked to climate change impacts. As well as coastal development, coastal armoring, and so on. So it is really a multi dimensional threat. The other issue that turtles face is temperature. Because sea turtles are well sea turtle hatchlings. The sex is determined by temperature. And that temperature is sex determination, skews toward females. As the temperature increases. So there are many beaches around the world and in Barbados as well. They've been feminized..

"Tourism has made hard hit, but so has fisheries, maritime navigation, but people that live on a course can't leave, you know? We had a huge influx of sargassum just come in. For most people it is a problem. This is really a goal of mine. There's still a great need to further invest in our innovators to really drive this innovation and experimentation. We're not quite there yet. I'm Connor Lennon and you're listening to the lid is on from the United Nations. For this episode, we went to the eastern Caribbean island of Barbados. Countries like Barbados are often described as frontline states in relation to climate change because they're the first to be affected by extreme weather events and rising sea levels. Over the next four podcasts, I'm going to be looking at some of the issues facing Barbados and what's been done with the support of the UN to help the country to deal with and adapt to these problems. In Barbados, I stated a hotel on the eastern side of the island, a resort, high above the coast. You actually need to take an elevator or 6 flights of stairs to get down to the beach. Trouble is, once you get down there, the experience is not what you might hope for. The sand was pretty much covered with sargassum seaweed, which gives off an unpleasant smell, and when it dries out, it attracts flies. So not really great for tourists. I saw people there trying to rake up the seaweed, but there was so much that didn't really seem that easy to clear it. And in any case, there was plenty more out at sea waiting to be washed ashore. Unfortunately, this is a problem for much of the island, particularly on the eastern coast. I was even told that some hotels on the eastern side have to bust their guests over to beaches on the west that are slightly less affected. It might not be as severe as you would see on the east coast. Doctor Shelley Ann Cox is a fisheries management specialist and he's also acted as a consultant for the UN. She's been studying the sargassum problem for several years. I usually during the night you come back and we'll see it stopped quite high. She invited me to a place called the boardwalk on the south coast. The coastal area is full of restaurants and tourist attractions, but here again there is also a huge amount of sargassum. We first start seeing sargassum about a decade ago in 2011. Not any quantities we are seeing it this year, 2022 is breaking records in terms of the amount of biomass reaching our shores. Yes tourism has made hard hit, but so has fisheries, maritime navigation, as well, but close to living is one of the sectors who don't really focus in on because these people that live on the course can't leave the tourists can leave, but they have to go through the smell when it's decomposing as well. It's on sites, it becomes pauses. It releases healthier than sulfite and ammonia gases, which has caused respiratory illnesses and hospitalizations. So it is definitely a hazard. It starts on a beach. It has in fact to the environment. As well, turtles, as well, but coastal ecosystems, reefs, seagrass beds, and mangroves have been over time. Been significantly affected by sargassum and flusters. What happened to create this situation? Okay, so it's really a combination of factors. You would see a lot in the literature consensus of this is really because it's a combination of factors from, of course, a symptom of climate change. The increased sea surface temperatures are contributing to its proliferation. We have nutrient loading, the new sargassum sorce region is in the tropical Atlantic, not the sargasso sea in the North Atlantic. And it's being fed by the Congo and Amazon rivers. As well as some changes in currents that will bring the sargassum to the eastern Caribbean especially, which is more hot, but no are neighbors in as far as Mexico are being significantly impacted. And so there has been some papers saying that Sahara does also contributes to sargassum because of the iron that will be in a dust. West Africa, especially Ghana, and Sierra Leone, they have seen significant and fluxes as well. So they are also grappling with this significant issue. But yes, it being a combination of factors leading to these significant influxes. And of course, it is this science is catching up as well as in management of it, catching up. We know what the emerging issues it takes a while to get the research done to try to meet to get some of the impact. So I would still say we're kind of fall still liking a bit behind as in the way to really address it and manage. Of course we've heard about all the opportunities that is this and some innovations. For instance, taking sargassum and using it in a multiplicity of uses from agriculture to bioplastics to pharmaceuticals, but still there is not a use that really takes the biomass needed to alleviate the impact. Fisheries management expert Shelley Ann Cox. One entrepreneur on the island is convinced that sargassum can be a valuable commodity on Barbados rather than simply a problem. He's Joshua forte, and he's the founder of red diamond compost. I had my a on producing a seaweed seaweed fertilizer seaweed extra. As a future product, something that we would do down the road. But I was having some challenges with getting compost things set up by the scale I wanted I know what economically it says. And around that time, button a lot of where it was. We had a huge influx of sargassum just come in. And I was like, well, okay. This raw material is just coming up to the shores. No readily available. You know what? It may be best for me to switch gears. I just focus on developing a product out of that sand is just all over the place. That is how I kind of pivoted from focusing on the compost at that stage at other soil amendments too going into the period solutions. And how we can develop something from this sargassum started to learn about properties of characteristic subject and stuff like that. And is there any real benefit of it from it that can be gained from it for our platform for proper production? And.

That's a lot And by the way, Uh, George on the third on Sunday. The new Congress is certified, and there's a building challenge to Nancy Pelosi. She may not be speaker of the House. Noticed is entirely raucous and in play, and I expect a lot of fireworks this coming week. Okay. My friend will talk to you this coming week. Dr Jerome Corsi, he says it's still isn't over. Wow. Residents on several eastern Caribbean islands have been advised to evacuate their homes after volcanoes that have remained quiet for decades rumbled in the life. Officials issued alerts on the island chain of ST Vincent and the Grenadines home to more than 100,000 people. Scientists rushed to study the renewed activity there. Puerto Rico is going to commit $8 million to try to rebuild the irresistible telescope that collapse when the cables broke, and then the whole thing went down. The eight million and funding is unlikely to come anywhere close to the reconstructing of the telescope. But you know what? It's a start. What else is going on in the skies these days? Let's check in with our expert Kevin Randall. Kevin, What do you have Wars this week? My friend. Well, happy New Year, George. You too. Uh, I know that there's a question that you and I are asked frequently. What is the purpose of the continued denial of UFO reality? Correct. 1947 make good sense. No one really had any idea what was happening in the newspapers of the time were filled with all sorts of theories from war nerves, spots in front of the eyes, experimental aircraft, interplanetary spaceships. No one really knew. Given the situation and the fear that our competitors in the world might have gained some sort of advantage. This policy made great sense at the time. There was also fair that the public would panic if the real answer was given to them. In the world today. We're much more sophisticated. The panic isn't as much of an issue but I know the answer. And it comes from belt Montana. The sightings of March 21st. I'm sorry, March 24th 1967. According to what Ken Williams told the newspapers in the night cap. He had seen a dome disc land in the canyon just off the road. He stopped his truck and he was walking toward the object when it took off further up the canyon and landed again. Searches of the area later revealed physical evidence of the landing in the Air Force label. The case is unidentified. Have more about that much more about that on my blogged. But that's not the important part of this. Bill. Montana is near Mouse from Air Force Base. Lieutenant Colonel Louis Chase, the UFO officer at Maelstrom was the aircraft commander of the RB 47 case about a decade earlier, in which a U F O paste in aircraft, with the object being seen virtually I'm sorry, visually and on radar and its directory directly involved here. This is also a period in which the entire flight of 10 ballistic missiles designated echo flight went off line at once, which I'm sure you know about there was an associate ID sighting. The launch control facility. Although there was great concern about this, and a thorough investigation was conducted. An explanation for the failure of the entire flight was never found. All this happened while the University of Colorado study known as the Conduct committee was going on, and an investigator from Colorado arrived at Mount Strum Toe, Learn what had happened, Dr Roy Craig. Was dispatched to meet with Colonel Chase once Craig was in Chase's office rather than ask about the sightings around belt, Craig asked about Echo flight. Craig played, wrote. The colonel caught his breath. Expressed surprise that I knew about it, he said. I can't talk about that. Craig turned the investigation over to Robert Lowe, who had been granted a security clearance. So that he could read the classified information in the project Blue Book files classified information, but they denied it existed for years. That wasn't good enough that that clearance wasn't good enough. And they eventually made a request to lieutenant to Lieutenant Colonel Robert Hitler, who was involved with the Colorado study. But Hitler's opinion was that the echo flight trouble was classified too high. For them to see it. They were told that there were no UFO involvement. The trouble with Echo flight was a matter of national security. Here's the point. It was believed impossible for all 10 missiles in a single flight to be disabled by an outside floor for us. It was redundancy built into the system, ignoring the fact that UFO's might have come into the play. What was important here was in an outside force had this Abel the missiles if an enemy learned that such a thing was possible. And that enemy could begin to search for a way to do it. And And there we have it. All right. My friend Kevin will talk to you next week. Thanks for that report on UFO's Kevin Randall Love those reports in a moment. Joseph Jacob psychic joins us. He'll be with us for this hour. We'll take calls with him later on today. And then the next hour. Elizabeth Joyce.
