BP's Role in a Net-Zero Carbon World

"What is it about that you think differentiates them in this space that it's quite progressive to say that you're you think that an oil and gas firm is exact right place to be in looking at decarbonization the energy transition. I actually think that if we want to play a critical role getting to the paris alignments the carbonized energy systems. We need to walk energy companies. I think that's the first element brooches you conscious decarbonize energy systems by walking with companies. But if we really want to get the pass alignment winnie talks support such as us which energy plus industry transport represents seventy percent of global emissions. So we need to really work with companies such as Gas companies to actually help them decarbonised in. Go along that journey. So i i don't see joining a company such as vpn Gas company which is committed to she decarbonising as a progressive jenny. I think it's actually very much lines towards the ambition on the purpose in terms of what is unique about ep. When i actually had my first conversation with the time when i was actually considering jet joining the had already involved on a series of multiple conversations with multiple types of stakeholders from institutional stakeholders eeg governments. They called as with investors across the world and with less obvious stakeholders such as ngos and some of the most challenging gio so there was a whole process of listening which was going on and that person of listening actually very much shaped his perspective and also the l. tease perspective leadership teams perspective. So what. I was actually struck by the super superstrong alignment within the whole leadership team within the company itself on this ambition to transition at the end of the day. If you're actually working in the morning gas company and your delivering energy to the world he also wanna feel good about what you're doing and in equivocally we all delivering energy to the world's anna frame of the energy transition we have capabilities in the skills to continue doing so trudy energy transition and and towards the low-carbon well

Proposed Tariff a Disincentive for Household Renewable Energy

"Scheme has been mooted to make us pay to put our excess energy into the grid as sola peaks in household systems. And we have spare. Is this a good idea. He alison crook a former australian businesswoman of the year. I have talked on. Previous science shows about our social enterprise in other community energy. Australia's first community owned energy retailer and about a vision for self sustaining. Resilient communities in which power is generated stored and shade locally. No one is left behind in the shift to renewables. Jobs are created locally and money is kept circulating in communities in our is now almost five years old and we have much to celebrate.

Some of our wonderful customers even made the solar credits on bills available to pay for the energy of households that were struggling working with community groups around the country where on the way to proving that energy companies can operate at community level and be hugely beneficial while doing so. But today i'm here to talk about a recent draft ruling by the australian energy market commission. The emc on excess pricing and incentive arrangements for distributed energy resources or as the headline news has it attacks on solar. What's to be clear. The ruling declared that the export of energy from households and other small providers by distributors. That's the polls and was is a service and it permits the distributors to charge for this service in the same way that we're currently charged by distributors to bring energy to us. The ruling has been made because agreed was constructed for one way energy flows and it is gradually becoming incapable of supporting the two way energy flows involved in twenty-first-century energy system with its massive amounts of domestic and business solo and storage already twenty percent of customers in the national electricity market have rooftop solar and this conservatively expected to double or even triple by twenty forty and all would expect to be able to export any excess energy to the

Smart Cities: Where Are They?

"Modern city is changing. Urbanization and population growth are non ending phenomenon with sixty. Six percent of the population expected to be living in cities by twenty fifty. I think fascinating about the evolving role of cities they originally came into existence only through the industrial revolution as a place for manufacturing and really their role was around the physical exchange of goods. That's jen host hewitt's from the small london board. Jen has involved in numerous smart city projects. Worldwide over the past fourteen years and has seen firsthand how the city has evolved. What we've seen times mcdonalds a transition more to a services economy in the city becomes a place for you exchange ideas it becomes a place potentially where it's not just about the exchange of physical goods but it's also looking at how it becomes a melting pot for data exchange or for the information economy. Ready can you just quickly explain what we mean by small city. I typically related to these four elements say firstly there is definitely a role i mean hans role predation emerging technology in them. Smart city us. That's an app defining aspect. I think the other thing to me is about. Small cities integration across multiple articles in the early stages of small cities. You see in a smart energy systems and that would be categorized as a small city. But i think actually true small cities wants to looking laterally cross multiple aspects of their infrastructure and service provision and then looking at how can they exchange Could waste to drive up.

CBS News correspondent Omar Villafranca says the challenges of running a statewide state run grid are coming home to roost. The governor here in Texas actually called this storm. The winter version of Hurricane Harvey and one of the issues is that Texas is the on Lee State in the lower 48 that has its own grid. The Electric Reliability Council of Texas is responding to charges by liberals that fossil fuels are to blame for the outages, while conservative media outlets which are blaming the are blaming the outages on renewable energy sources, ERCOT says failures and natural gas, coal and nuclear energy systems are responsible for nearly twice as many outages as frozen wind turbines and solar panels.

Chevron CEO says company is embracing, investing in a lower carbon energy system

"What's best performing sector since election day. You'll never believe it energy and we talked about energy. I mean fossil fuels with multiple co vaccines. Right around the corner. The economy will soon be able to reopen which means more demand for oil and gas ray of yours. No i'm not a fan of this industry anymore. I think the long-term press but posthumous have gotten grimmer but there are two fossil fuel stocks that i still consider investable one of them is chevron the big integrated the king of the oils the best of the best chevrons held up surprising well during the pandemic. And it's got a powerful safe dividend of five point seven percent. The only problem the stock is now thirty five percent in the last six weeks. So kennedy keep climbing. Let's take a closer look with mike. He's the chairman ceo of chevron corporation. Get clear picture of the industry and his company said mr. Moore's welcome demand money jim. It's good to be with you all right so you got to solve this for me. As long as i've been in the business always one company that was the best and it wasn't as yours. It was a company called back son. There are a lot of others that were doing. Well now they're chevron and there really is everybody else everybody else being companies. I'm worried about the dividend that article in production. That aren't conservative. What happened to chevron at the other guy should have listened to well jim. Different companies have made different choices as As we came into this and as as we've gone through this so have changed their dividend policies. Some of changed their strategy. Some of change their financial priorities. We haven't our dividend to secure as you mentioned are balance is strong our strategies are intact and there's no they can count on us so we were we were well prepared as As we went through the cycle. And i think that people realize that we've been constant at a time when many others have changed. Now you'll have when it's necessary been aggressive for instance. You were very aggressive in the gulf of mexico drilling wells that are going to produce oil for year. They don't run out those wells. I mean that's just something that you did. Everybody else went away from it. How did she have the dish do that. Jim it's a long term business. Demand for energy in the world is enormous seven and a half billion people on the planet today. By twenty forty there will be nine billion in all of them deserve the things that affordable reliable energy can provide. so we've got to take a long view on investments and at the same time you've got to take a short view in terms of being prepared for markets that are very volatile and unpredictable. So it's an and world actually have to do both. We have to look out the front window. Twenty years down the road and we look out the window of the house today and see what's going on the world today and manage our way through both of those. Let go out twenty years. You bought a company called no one. None well terrific. I visited leviathan. It's an incredible field in metro. Train off the coast of israel. I could see a visionary saying you know what it's time to disenfranchise gas prom company bringing its gas to the west and make it. So there's a pipeline from israel all the way up through central europe and that could be something that's a twenty five year project pie in the sky. Well that's certainly one of the opportunities to commercialise. What is a large gas resource in the waters of the eastern mediterranean office. Real right now at feeds markets in israel egypt and jordan their opportunities to take liquefied natural gas to other markets and certainly longer term. These types of resources often lend themselves to infrastructure developments to feed market. Europe is not not far away so those are all options to commercially develop that resource and supply markets in an affordable reliable manner. So that that's the type of thing that our company does really well and it's a long term view that we have to have to sustain our company at the same time. I've noticed that you need to be able to have common ground with whoever's in the white house. I'm not going to try to say you have to do this do that. Because you're reasonable person. Have come up with it. But if you have a really aggressive. Climate change president and team. Is it perhaps possible that they make it. So that you that you're not able to enjoy your own properties. Well jim we've been in business for over one hundred forty years we've worked with republican administrations with democrat administrations with split government with unified government. And we always start with common ground. Government wants economic development and prosperity for its people and governments want a cleaner environment We look for the common ground and there's always common ground because we're critical part of the economy. We may not agree. One hundred percent with any given administration on everything. But there's usually much more we're aligned on than we're different have different views on and then we sit down at the table and we work our way through those things. We've got different points of view and that's exactly what we expect to do. with this administration and every other one that follows but mike how do you sit down with fund. Managers younger financials. You say you know what we're about trying to be carbon neutral even make it so carbon negative so to speak so chevron can never be a holding embarrassed and better. How much do you think that works good. And they have great dividend policy. We can own what happens if too many managers start thinking that way. Well jim what managers really want out of our industry and out of our company. It's better returns and boil our strategy down to four simple words. Higher returns lower carbon. And we need to do both. And we need to find ways to invest in things that are good for shareholders and also good for the environment if we do just just invest and things are good for the shareholders and ignore the environment. That's not sustainable. And if all we do is invest in things that have an environmental case and they don't create value and returns for shareholders. That's not sustainable. Either so we sit down with portfolio managers of all ages and all levels of experience and talk about how to deliver higher returns and lower carbon That's what people. I think that's been investors are looking for well. How about another way to look at it. Some people feel jim. Do not see the future. Do you not see tesla. Do you not see the hydrogen fuel cells. Judah there's no room in portfolio because it's going to happen fast than you think you think the demands big al twenty thirty years. Probably the way. I too but they feel no mike they feel. It's gone away. Fashion than you. And i think and that has caused me to pull in my horns about a group i really like. Would you have we embrace a lower carbon future. We expect lower carbon energy system. In fact the energy systems always been moving towards lower carbon hundred. And fifty years ago cole came along a displaced would eat and then you had oil and gas and then you had nuclear hydro wind solar hydrogen now. The energy systems always been in transition. And we're investing today in. I'll give you an example renewable natural gas if you've ever driven by dairy farm or a feed lot. There's there's a certain aroma that you you may recall We're actually capturing the waste products from dairy farms now fermenting the those products to create the natural gas product cleaning it up moving it into a pipeline so it can displace fossil fuels so we reduce methane emissions and we create a salable renewable product. So we're investing in things like that. We're investing in nuclear fusion. we're investing in hydrogen. We're investing technologies that can scale and make a real difference and be part of a carbon energy system. This is the history of our company. And i believe it's the future of putting a hydrogen fuel cells all of your incredible gas stations. How about making that statement saying to the rest of the industry and all the espn enthusiasts. Look we are doing something right now. That's economic but it is gonna kill it in the five six years you could do that. Might your this and you've got the balance what we're working on these kinds of things. Jim we come back to. It's an world we've got to have higher returns and lower carbon and so we've gotta find things that work for shareholders and work for the environment and that's exactly what we're working on so i think i think you're going to see our company and you'll see others in our industry that continue to find solutions and this is a challenge that is too big for any one company anyone industry or anyone one country in the world to completely address We're gonna work in partnership with others and continue to advance the you know the state of the energy system which will only grow. Well mike. you've always been the you've been the voice of reason. Your company's been the scientific company all along people should know that chevron has always had the most scientists and engineers at the top might worth chairman. Ceo of chevron sir.

Why We Need to Quit Coal

Why We Need to Quit Coal

"In nineteen forty eight. The british politician emmanuel shin well appeal to people to avoid wasting coal. But just as i am asking the minor but a greater effort to give you the coal you need. I also asked uses fuel at work and at home to burn coal catholic and to avoid way then cole was seen as key to a prosperous future Now seen as a means to a hotter and deadlier one it accounts for nearly half of the global energy systems carbon dioxide emissions this week a united nations report laid out how coal use must be drastically reduced. If there's any hope of reaching the paris agreements target of limiting warming to one point five or two degrees above pre industrial levels the un secretary general antonio gutierrez urged the world to get rid of it. It is time to put a price on carbon to phase out fossil fuel finance and then fossil fuel subsidies to stop building new coal power plants and co power financing domestically and overseas the report this week from the united nations and a group of international climate. Researchers laid out how difficult it might be to meet of these targets. Charlotte howard is the economists energy and commodities editor. So to meet the one point five degree target coal use would have to drop by eleven percent each year for the next decade to meet two degrees would require coal demand to drop by seven percent. That's about the same decline that we are expected to see this year and twenty twenty which was really a historic bad year for coal amid a global pandemic and so that lays out just how hard it is to achieve these goals but even safe the knowledge that it is a terrible fuel. It is still widely in use right. What what is the the global picture of coal consumption look like well. This has been a really interesting year because in some ways it has eliminated both the progress being made against coal as well as illuminated. Just how tricky. It's going to be to get rid of it. In parts of the world in the west and in europe you've seen coal under consistent pressure due to this combination of factors that are mutually reinforcing from government policy which promotes renewables investors becoming increasingly wary of stranded assets and the risk of investing in coal. As well as really good alternatives to call in america this wave of natural gas that was unleashed by fracking. Helped retire a lot of coal plants and now the cost of renewables have declined by so much that in most of the west new solar new wind is actually less expensive than coal from existing. Coal fired power plants so caused really struggling to compete. And the question is how you can start to drive down coal and other parts of the world where it continues to grow if co falls in the west but rises in asia which already counts for three quarters of coal consumption. You're gonna blaze right past the goals of the paris. Climate agreement and yet the question around fossil fuels more generally has been developing economies can essentially catch up to the west without making those same mistakes while while the west is taking. Its foot off the gas as it were. It's worth remembering that american europe. Of course their own economic development was powered by coal and that even now coal consumption per person in india which is the world's second largest coal consumer is less than half the coal consumption per person in america. And so there's this question of. Why should we limit our own economic growth and limit access to a cheap and reliable form of electric city and so you see countries starting to reckon with this trying to find ways both to meet their climate targets as well as continued to support rapid growth. But you say that. Asia is sort of central to to this equation and yet even china for example is is making very ambitious promises about zero carbon output. That's right you saw decision. Paying set out a goal of carbon neutrality by twenty sixty in september and that is a really big deal. China accounts for more than half of all the world's coal consumption. It is the world's largest emitter so having that level of political commitment from government that essentially controlled is very important and the question is how soon china may act to set in motion plans towards limiting its emissions. There are few really key documents that are coming up. So china's five year plan will be published next year that could include a net cap on coal. Which would allow new installations of coal plants. Only as they replace older ones that are more polluting and then also by the end of december china has to make a fresh pledge to fight emissions under the terms of the paris climate agreement of two thousand fifteen. So i think we'll get some more clear direction soon but it's part to overstate just how important it is to think about china and coal just because of how large the emissions are will. That's the story for china. But you you said. Asia more generally is really the the big piece of this puzzle. Some of the forces that are helping to drive down coal in the west don't fully apply in asia and that's largely because of the degree of government intervention. Obviously in china you have state backed coal companies elsewhere in asia to you have governments that are involved either and owning national electricity companies in india coal. India limited is the state-backed coal company. That is the world's largest coal miner. There's a very difficult political challenge. Which is that. The interests of the state and the interests of the coal industry are very closely intertwined and so even when private capital begins to fall away from coal you can have public support for it and that means that it can be more challenging to make this transition. That in parts of america are parts of europe so with all that in mind then. What prospects do you think for reaching the targets that are laid out in this week's u report. I think there are a few really promising things that have happened. One is just this extraordinary decline of coal fired. Power in the west shows that it is possible. Five years ago. Coal accounted for about a third of britain's electricity generation and in the second quarter of this year accounted for zero point five percent. The other thing is that in the five years since the paris agreement you seen real progress on a number of levels you've seen market forces evolved such that renewables really are competitive in much of the world. Even some middle income countries like indonesia where coal is still technically cheaper than renewables. You've also seen a really big ramp up in commitment from global leaders not just xi jinping but india's government has set very aggressive targets for renewables. Of course you have now. In the form of joe biden someone who really views climate as a key part of his presidency. He signalled his commitment to fighting climate. Change the appointment of john. Kerry's climates are and. I think that having the person who was america's seniormost diplomat a secretary of state during barack obama's presidency is important signaling to the world that a new round of leadership on climate is coming and one of the most important tasks in thinking about climate. Diplomacy is how to encourage this shift away from coal and that includes how to support those who suffer from the shift the workers of course also some of the patients that have vested interests in call.

Could a Silicon Valley startup make geothermal heating cool?

"All this week. We're talking about how technology can help us. Adapt to climate change for our series. How we survive more. People are trying to figure out how to be energy independent to avoid unexpected power. Shut offs and use greener energy for some. It's as easy as drilling a hole. Geothermal energy systems let people heat and cool their homes using energy from the earth. The technology has been around for decades. It's incredibly efficient but fewer than one percent of homes in the us. Use it now. One startup wants to do for geothermal heating what tesla did for the electric car make it cool marketplace tech producers.

Boris Johnson says Britain needs its own Green New Deal

"Boris johnson has always been keen to burn it his green credentials and put tackling climate. Change at the front of his government's. Agenda is done so again this week setting out a long-awaited plan to make the uk a world leader in green technology as with most government announcements. However that will plenty of spending commitments already made being re announced but the most auden criticism came from the tories who said it goes against. The party's new electoral base and could cost them votes but business secretary. Alex chama rejected this notion. This is about leveling up across our country. We're talking about twelve billion pounds and he has around. Four billion pounds of this is new money. Other money is money that's been pledged previously on deed lost budget in in in march Book very importantly This billion pounds will help to bring in three times as much in terms of private sector money and supporting create two hundred and fifty thousand jobs but the have been some critics of this plan arguing that it really doesn't go far enough. The shuttle business sexually. Ed milliband made this point. There is an urgency. That isn't enough ambition. That isn't a real plan. He's got to do better in all of our interests that he does better. We will keep pushing the government on ambition on jobs on appropriate plan to rise to the scale of the climate emergency. We face chimp. Let's begin with this. Ten point plan of boys. Johnson set out in article in the financial times. In fact what did you make of it and how much of it was new money and new policy okay so this was a very long awaited announcement. They were meant to originally Back in the summer and it slipped because of pressures on number ten prime minister announced twelve billion pounds states investment program when you went through the numbers at ten about three billion pounds this new at included five hundred million hydrogen one billion pounds insulation three hundred million pounds for nuclear industry. I think what was interesting even if the money was pretty small. Change when you compare it said of the countries like franz chemmy refute these comparisons jeremy kuban late manifesto prince lansing which lici tuten sums of hundreds of billions of pounds of buried money.

It's brilliant. Hear a british conservative prime minister coming up with a plan like this. Because although we've had david cameron promising the government ever and then we had theresa may actually legislating for a net zero twenty fifty which was very pioneering for a country the size of britain at the time. The thing is. We really haven't seen a prime minister set out in a speech or in a plan like this thing as visionary really and it is a great vision. Unfortunately it's really not matched by detailed plans and considering that a large chunk of it is dependent on trying to mobilize private investor capital. I'm just concerned that it's really not going to make. Investors are not going to invest unless they see the detailed policy until they know what the shape of any sort of regulatory framework has got to look like really not going to get people plowing in at the rate needed to fulfill this and when it comes to actually meeting that net zero goal twenty fifty. It's really not on track to do that. Unfortunately the classic example about chocolate changing which is provided uncertainty from best is if you look at one of the atoms.

Is you know god. We've got to do something on climate. Okay what do we do on electric cars. Oh i know will bring the target ford. That's actually relatively easy to do. It's important but unless it's matched by holocene setting out how people are going to be able to buy more electric cars and how the rollout of the charging infrastructure is going to work. You know it's really difficult to see how it works. I expected a guest to say something a little more meditative parts of this plan on you when it comes to the targets for making sure that new homes not built with natural gas boilers in them. For example you know that's really quite important. And of course at target itself has been brought forward slightly from twenty five to twenty twenty three at same these support for hydrogen also important but again. You look at what germany's doing in its recovery plan. It's got around. Forty forty billion set aside for electric cars renewable energy and so forth and france around thirty billion euros set aside nine billion of that is for hydrogen renewables alone so compared to that. The u k plan does look a little small were jim. This is one thing critics of picked up on the plan. Even who is labour's shadow.

Boris Johnson says Britain needs its own Green New Deal

"Boris johnson has always been keen to burn it his green credentials and put tackling climate. Change at the front of his government's. Agenda is done so again this week setting out a long-awaited plan to make the uk a world leader in green technology as with most government announcements. However that will plenty of spending commitments already made being re announced but the most auden criticism came from the tories who said it goes against. The party's new electoral base and could cost them votes but business secretary. Alex chama rejected this notion. This is about leveling up across our country. We're talking about twelve billion pounds and he has around. Four billion pounds of this is new money. Other money is money that's been pledged previously on deed lost budget in in in march Book very importantly This billion pounds will help to bring in three times as much in terms of private sector money and supporting create two hundred and fifty thousand jobs but the have been some critics of this plan arguing that it really doesn't go far enough. The shuttle business sexually. Ed milliband made this point. There is an urgency. That isn't enough ambition. That isn't a real plan. He's got to do better in all of our interests that he does better. We will keep pushing the government on ambition on jobs on appropriate plan to rise to the scale of the climate emergency. We face chimp. Let's begin with this. Ten point plan of boys. Johnson set out in article in the financial times. In fact what did you make of it and how much of it was new money and new policy okay so this was a very long awaited announcement. They were meant to originally Back in the summer and it slipped because of pressures on number ten prime minister announced twelve billion pounds states investment program when you went through the numbers at ten about three billion pounds this new at included five hundred million hydrogen one billion pounds insulation three hundred million pounds for nuclear industry. I think what was interesting even if the money was pretty small. Change when you compare it said of the countries like franz chemmy refute these comparisons jeremy kuban late manifesto prince lansing which lici tuten sums of hundreds of billions of pounds of buried money. Guns was agreement.

Makeover: Oil Giant BP Promises to Cut Oil Production, Invest in Renewables

"Somebody had to go I. It's no surprise that Covid Nineteen Delta Draconian blow to the oil and gas industry stay at home orders and line shutdowns of dramatically reduced the need for oil and gas prices and earnings plunged well. Now at least one giant oil company says demand for fossil fuels will never be the same again and it's taking steps not just to pivot, but to make itself over entirely. That business is BP the london-based behemoth last week, the one, hundred, ten year, old company announced a seventeen billion dollar quarterly loss and multibillion dollar writedown of its assets. But what generated headlines was its announcement that over the next decade, it intends to discard its identity as a fossil fuel business. Instead, it'll invest heavily in a wide variety of renewable energy technologies on its way to achieving net zero emissions by twenty fifty. Specifically bb says it will cut oil and gas production by forty percent over the next decade. At the same time, it plans to put ten times as much money into renewable energy investments as it currently does with a goal of investing five billion dollars a year by twenty thirty bio-energy hydrogen, carbon, capture and storage investments in electric vehicle charging stations are all said to be on the menu as our wind and solar. From. A business perspective the move does make some sense BP expects demand for oil to fall between fifty and seventy five percent over the next thirty years as the world attempts to slow global warming. In June BP officials acknowledged that the pain caused to the oil business by the pandemic isn't temporary. It's permanent. They say in a statement, they said covid nineteen would accelerate an existing transition to a lower carbon economy as country seek to quote, build back better meaning in ways less harmful to the environment. The shift is taking a toll on BP's employees. The company announced in June that it plans to lay off ten thousand people. BP's dismal second quarter didn't seem to faze investors instead they embrace the company's new renewable energy shift its share price leapt seven percent on the news stuart joyner an analyst at the market research firm redburn remarked that the move was major positive, thoughtful, and largely unexpected the New York Times reported. Unexpected too many perhaps, but close observers of the company may not have been that surprised. BP has spent the last decade clawing back from its disastrous deepwater horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. For obvious reasons, the company hasn't exactly been a darling of environmentalists, but quickly after becoming CEO in February Bernard Looney made a pledge for BP to achieve net zero emissions by twenty fifty it was the first of giant global oil companies to do so. At the time both socially conscious and traditional investors applauded BP's pledge Andrew Logan and oil and gas director at series a climate change advocacy organization said EP was setting a new standard for leadership in the oil industry CNN reported and Barclays analysts called the plan both fundamental and radical. Last week. Looney. said in a statement quote. This coming decade is critical for the world in the fight against climate change and to drive the necessary change in global energy systems will require action from everyone but so far oil giants. Exxon and Chevron have not followed suit indeed mobile continues to expand oil exploration and production around the world despite its own sharp drop in earnings. The Washington Post reported BP has attempted and failed at other eco, friendly initiatives over the years and BP will continue to invest in and make most of its money from fossil fuels for at least another five years. Still observers agree that this is the company's most transformative move yet, and the realities of business may give BP's ecoconscious strategy more momentum than has existed in the past. As reporter Steven muffs wrote in. The Washington Post for. BP. Is trying to get ahead of what climate change might forced the industry to do. Anyway.

20 Minutes About A Smart Rowing Machine

"The day we have an interesting guests. Bruce Smith from hydro reuss. Why don't you just introduce yourself little eight? Great to be with you on the show and name is Bruce Smith I'm a Canadian living in America, and and the CEO and founder of a company called Hydro. What's grow? Yeah, hydro is a indoor rowing machine, and it uses some pretty revolutionary resistance mechanism technology to make it quiet, but the coolest thing. Thing about the machine. The part that we love the most about it is that we broadcast not fitness classes, but we actually take the experience of being out on the water rowing, and we have instructors out there. Who talked to you directly live on a beautiful twenty two inch, high definition screen with great speakers, so you actually experienced being out on the water and being part of a rowing crew you know from. From your living room or your bedroom or wherever you machine, so it's like having a penitent Kloss, except it's on a rowing machine that is extremely quiets why it whereas like putting us more broad, you know like almost feeding like you're dancing. Really off focusing on you know creating an immersive experience of being out there rowing exactly so we have trademark this idea of votaw reality and I love Peleton we have A. A time in the office they're they're totally great. It's really fun and it is. You said it's exactly right. It's like being at the club with your friends. You know you're not drinking or smoking, but you're you know you're listening to music or super photogenic people. You know it's fun experience and we love that that's great for us the coolest thing that we could think of doing to take this concept of live. Elo are and create an immersive experience so rather than going to the club every day for your workout, which is great, we can have great music and really really charismatic instructors, but you're actually out on the river, or on the bay, Miami beach or rowing by London, bridge, so, who do you think is it for? Is it like somebody that Audio Patent Than They WanNa? WanNa to mix up the workout as really somebody that is looking for different experience because they don't like going to a club, but they wanna have liberal quietness of actually being outdoors and row. It's for people who are looking for the very best experienced the best workout experience and the best way to connect with their friends, so Peleton has a leaderboard which is great. Great, but you're really competing. You're competing by yourself and you know not that many people have actually wrote out of the water in a boat with other people, but the experience of it is unbelievable. You're right on the water, but most importantly you're moving in complete rhythm with seven other people, Ya, howdy, howdy create that because if I'm Roy like, let's say like on. On, a big rowing team or like even dragon boating like a need to be in sync with everyone right because as soon somebody's out of things not working. That's exactly right. In human beings hardware. They love to do things in synchronicity with other people. It makes you feel better. It's like it's a genuine way of connecting and when you're biking, you know you're. You're like ninety five or one hundred beats per minute, and and really not moving in the same rhythm as as the instructor like you're having a shared experience, but it's not exactly the same rhythm when you're on the rowing machine, you're encouraged. It's actually really easy. You move every part of your body in exactly the same rhythm as the instructor, and so there's some brain. Brain science behind this you know the brain is an aerobic organ like a muscle, you not energy systems like like the rest of your body, and so every time you make a decision in your brain. You're using some energy, and so when you're exercising, you have to keep deciding to exercise and they're really really cool thing about rowing especially when you're rowing crew like. Like, not just on a machine by yourself in a room, but when you're rowing as part of a team, you turn off that decision making process in your brain, because the person that you're following the person in front of you is is making those decisions. You don't have to make them, so you achieve the state of flow much much faster and we know from. From our experience and I know from my experience as a national team coach that has it actually has a profound impact on people. It is the best exercise you can do. It's also US eighty six percent of your body's muscles when you're biking like forty forty five percent of your muscles with you have to use your arms and legs. It's like a full body. And your core and it improves your bone density also, so it really is like. If there was one pill that you could take, that would like. Make you friends and make you healthier. You take that pill. Of course. We feel like we've got that pill. We all would like that, but say so just saw. Listeners can really imagine how the product experience looks like so I'm imagining now you're sitting on a rowing machine and you have like a huge monitor of some sort right, and and you see an instructor like. How do you create that experience off? Somebody actually sitting in front of me. Somebody's sitting behind me and I'm not competing against. Against them, but we actually working together like how you create that certainly question, so this isn't like we didn't just go. Go to the river with some of our friends and get some go prost. We don't talk about our our workouts as we talk about them as episodes and we hired this really really amazing film team, and so we take all the experience that Hollywood and television. Television have created in the United States and we apply that skill in that art to capturing the whole experience of being out on the water, so we have four cameras. We have a team that is mixing and editing that you know. The most important part of this are two things number one is the rhythm, and so you never lose that rhythm and the instructor. Who's WHO's out. Out there with you is encouraging you to be in rhythm with everybody, and it's very very easy to follow like you do it instantly, even people who've never done it before within like two or three strokes there in the right rhythm, and then the other part is that emotional connection and two things contribute a lot to that one is music, so we have an amazing library of. Of Music and the other is making sure that when you're filming, you captured not just the rhythm, and the experience of being outside, and and the you know the environment of being out on the water, but also the eyes of the instructor is are the window to the soul, and it's it sounds trite, but it's. It's unbelievably true like you have to see. People's facing to be able. Able to read what's in there is and it, it's that experience being able to move your whole body in the same rhythm, AC- instructor and also connect with them. Because you feel what they're feeling, you know they're out on the water and they're excited about what they're doing. They're you know they're training for the US national team and they're sharing their passion for sport that they love. Love more than anything else, and it's really it is genuinely inspiring, and we thought just a crazy response from consumers, which is really encouraging, and

Coronavirus will trigger biggest ever plunge in energy demand, emissions: IEA

"The corona virus pandemic is delivering the biggest shock to the global energy system in seven decades according to the international energy agency NPR's Jeff Brady reports plunging demand for energy is hitting fossil fuels especially hard global energy demand will fall by six percent this year seven times the decline after the financial crisis ten years ago I E. a projection show oil and gas hit hard but demand for coal falls by an extraordinary eight percent the largest decline since World War two the agency says renewable energy fair as well while among grows much as in the past the IEA projects electricity generation from wind solar and hydro power will increase five percent the agency says all this will reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions that lead to climate change by almost eight percent the largest annual decrease ever recorded though emissions will rebound in an economic recovery unless countries focus relief packages on boosting clean energy Jeff Brady

National Labs Respond to COVID-19

"Joining me today. Chris Fall Director of the Department of Energy Office of Science Chris. Welcome to the show. Thanks or currently facing the threat of cove in nineteen which the World Health Organization has classified as a pandemic when people think of the to an infectious disease like this they usually think of agency is like the CDC or the Department of Health and Human Services. How is the Department of Energy? Been involved in the response to the virus. Well first and foremost the Department of Energy's responding by taking care of its people. I mean we've got a lot of people not just here in Washington but around the country at our labs and sites our first responsibility and what? We're very focused on is making sure they're okay contingency planning for what might come but in any nationally sensitive situation emergency or otherwise. The Department of Energy is here because we've got some responsibilities to the country into the federal system. One is energy right. Our responsibility is to make sure the electrical grid is resilient and working and working with the the private sector that runs that and other elements of of the energy system. Another thing we do is we maintain develop and build the nation's strategic deterrent. It's not something you just walk away from so we need to make sure that's okay. The materials involved with that or secure and so forth and of course we do a lot of science and technology for the country. And so that's an opportunity and in one way that we're responding in particular to this crisis so tell me more about the work that the scientists at our national labs have been doing to understand Covet nineteen sure great question and boy. They've been fantastic in two ways one. Is You know they're always doing science? And technology including on things like viruses. And so they're ready to respond to something like this particular outbreak but they have been doing some particular things. One thing they've been doing is using our x Ray light sources to take pictures essentially of the virus understand the structure of it. And that's a one way to understand how we could impact at virus with drugs for example to shut it down Hand in hand with taking pictures of the next light sources modeling structure of the virus on a computer. We have phenomenal supercomputers we use them for things like modeling viruses. We have the capability to do. Some biochemical characterization in models of disease for example is basic research about how viruses spread in cells and tissues. And how we might measure that so things that could lead to better testing or to vaccines and then the other thing. We do which is actually really interesting as we use supercomputers for something else and as evidence so we can model the spread of a disease like Cova Nineteen in population in our country in the world and so forth and so we use our computers for that four ways. I'm sure there are some others. I'm not thinking of but for big Broadway's that our scientists are working to help with code nineteen right and this is happening so obviously we have seventeen national labs. This is this is happening all across the country at all these different labs who are doing work in these different fields correct. Yeah that's right a different labs have different capabilities but we do have light sources at a number of labs. You've got supercomputers at a number of labs some of those are off society slabs that work more directly with me some than others nuclear labs. They still do work in biology. So not every lab is working on this. Not Every lab has the capability but they are all participating together in a working group that we've put together ask questions. Hey have you thought of this? Did you try that? And experts from all of those laboratories are getting together to answer those questions in response to this virus outbreak. And I think that leads into point I wanted to make about the national labs. Why are they uniquely suited to respond to a crisis challenge such as this? So we do have again. We know we've got When we're talking about a specific crisis like this virus we do have some very special capabilities to handle dangerous things including viruses. Let me talk more. Generally the Department of Energy has some sport. I like to call a super powers when it comes to science and technology and one of those. Is these big user facilities when I say an x Ray Light source? We're talking about something. That's vast bigger than a football field. Could be much bigger than a football field. In diameter a synchrotron that produces special x rays or other instruments are user facilities or one superpower. Scientists scale There are a lot of agencies that are part of the US Science and Technology System do science that fund science uniquely really among all of these agencies is our ability to do big science. Lots of people working on a problem. They know how to work together. They know how to share information and data. So that's a superpower. And then the other thing we really bring relatively uniquely because we have these laboratories we have these physical places that are doing. All different kinds of work is convergent. So you know at one laboratory. We may have biologists. Yes but we have chemists and mathematicians and computer scientists and and physicist and all of those people bring different perspectives to a problem. And so convergence is again is a superpower of the Department of Energy so convergence science at scale and then these world unique really user facilities that we build and maintain and operate on behalf of the country. Can we talk a little bit about pass challenges that the national labs have helped us tackle as anything come to mind you know at the scale of of scientific or human health challenges that the labs have responded to in this way in the past? Let me start by saying. There's something we did that. It wasn't really about a human health challenge but it has completely revolutionized our understanding of humans and human health and human biology. And that's the human genome project. The Department of Energy started the human genome project and then went on to collaborate with the National Institutes of Health. To scale it up and and sequencing entire human genome and now of course that's become routine but we've been in similar situations before and we responded pretty much in the same way when there was the Zeka outbreak when there was the Abullah outbreak are x Ray light sources were used to characterize the pathogens. Take pictures of it we modeled. He is on computers. We did the same epidemiology modeling. We know how to do this stuff. And so when these crises occur people calling the Department of Energy and the disease is clearly a global threat so how is the Department of Energy Coordinating with other agencies? Both at home and abroad sure. That's a great question Let me let me say there are two parts that we started out by talking about responsibilities of the Department of Energy so obviously we are connected with other agencies like homeland security or FARC on things like the electrical grid and making sure we have power and you know if those people get sick or impacted. We have backups. For All of that. We obviously are in constant contact regarding as most agencies. Are this emergency response. Stuff was going on with our people. What's going on? With our sites folks like Homeland Security folks like health and Human Services that are coordinating. The federal government response plugged into all of that and working with them and of course their science and technology and so already we have a long standing deep relationship with the National Institutes of health. I talked about these. Phenomenal world-class user facilities that we support while they're used by the National Institutes of health. All the time routinely notches for a crisis like this But we're absolutely plugged in. You can imagine a crisis late covet. Nineteen a lot of folks are asking what we could do. Including scientists and across the federal government we are coordinated talking to those folks who is best equipped to answer a particular question. How can the Department of Energy help? So we're right there at the tape in times like this. What is something that inspires you or gives you confidence about our ability to rise? This challenge sure That's an easy one. It's the people is the people in the Department of Energy. I gotTa Tell You And not just you know here in headquarters but out across the labs and sites you know. This outbreak popped up and it wasn't a What should we do? Can we go home? sort of Response it was. How can we help and it was more than just? How can we help? Here's all the things that we think that we can do to help. How do we get started You know can we move forward and so that inspires a lot of confidence? When when people see a problem they don't run from it. They run to it and want to know how to help solve IT Director Chris. Fall with the Department of Energy Office of Science. Thank you very much for your time. Thank yous

And I know we've talked about on the pipe as before. Eft But she's also going to talk to us that as well as t t t and the other one is tft which I have honestly not heard of So I'm excited to learn as well so welcome Chandi thanks. It's a pleasure to be here and you started talking. We talked to vista few minutes before I hit record about Energy Psychology. In where that what it is great. Well I'm just a real swift ride through the ages about five thousand years ago or sell. Who's county Asian medicine primarily Chinese medicine? came up with the concept of the energy body and the idea of balance. Everybody's seeing the yen young of balance right and so one of the things that the Chinese figured out way back was that we have life force within us. We are made of it and we have it within US and when it becomes imbalanced that is sort of the bottom line of Asian medicine is to re balance the life force otherwise known as cheap and so thousands of years later finally catching up and so we have integrated this into our western medicine. Traditions and perspectives. And we call this area a very large umbrella. We call it energy medicine or energy. Psychology there rather interchangeable terms really Neither is quite right but Somehow energy all of its own We would probably get lots of Exxon mobile ads if we didn't specify so we're not yet to good at specifying what we mean. And so we've designated these two areas so far So since the eighties we have really been working on this area and it expands very very quickly because it is part of the mind body connection which almost everybody on the planet so far and it's an expansive dynamic area of inquiry which tells us about that the marriage of consciousness and physical health and this thing we called emotional health or wellbeing and so all three of these tenants are sort of carried together in crucible of energy work that we do in the eighties. There were three scientist Let me just rephrase that three practitioners that were really into scientific inquiry about what could be better for my clients and that's kind of people we like right. They're always driving. Find something new and wonderful for their clients. Hell and so there was a chiropractor Anna psychologist and psychotherapist and independently as scientists. Want to be all three of them determined that if they took these ancient Asian principals they were finding out about about bodies cheat and balance and manual stimulation of the Meridians which is just a fancy word for that the veins highways which life force or chee travels throughout the body if they were doing that simultaneously with their other endeavor. Cairo Presser Psychology. They got a much bigger and more positive outcome and so our tradition. That I'm talking about today is really derivative of Dr Callahan's. He had this idea that together. These things could be called thought field. Therapy T. F. T. And over the years it was just actually for a professionals in the mental health area. One of his students though was the Stanford trained engineer call Gary Crag and turned out that he was really good engineering student but what he was really interested in was human engineering and so he started taking every course he could find and spent hundreds of thousands of dollars in personal empowerment and looking at all the different ways that one could elevate themselves and their health and he decided to take Dr Callahan's work and squash it into an elegantly simple little quirks and he called it. Fta for emotional freedom techniques and so there's a couple radical things that we love him for He's still very much with us. But one of the things is the ability to send the size this little unique down sized reverse engineered packet that called. Eft Much smaller easier to use for the world than its predecessor. The other thing was he had this idea that he expressed about all negative emotions were actually energy disruption and people went and so you know he's he's probably not still out there explaining that concept but the basic idea including of my direct mentor. A Gwyneth. Maas is it's about a consciousness of a disruption in your energy system which is right. There is some thing that happens. That alert you to the fact there is a disruption in your equilibrium. And that's as they say where it all began and this is what we do in energy psychology. Since that time. I'll give you that thirteen. You ask about T- t TS stands for trauma tapping technique and it is a derivative that is directly from Roger Callahan and Gary Craig and comes together in another kind of algorithm which is closer actually detail but its value as that. My friends go NEELA. Calm and youth. Sandstrom are Swedish and they have spent half their lifetime anyway in the Western diaspora of refugee camps and children of war. I displaced persons and they have spread this work. He t t to everyone they found in the beauty of it is they decided because there are well over three hundred dialects that they would never be able to master those or be understood. Etcetera Etcetera. Bingo they had this great idea. Let's make wordless. Let's just do an algorithm or prestige and make it wordless and we'll tell people through a confederate a compatriot a local a guide. We'll tell them to please the symbol. Everybody and we'll tell them to please think about that. Which troubles you and while you hold. That thought see going back to thought. Fail therapy while you hold. That thought we want you to do this. Little Algorithm of manual stimulation. And big. Go you'll feel better and so now you have all three Ts. That's fantastic ahead Lorna Mine. Wiser on and she also talked about She's a friend and the beautiful work that they're doing you know particularly or it's telling viewers if they want to look into it's peaceful heart dot s. e. which dancer Sweden. Okay wonderful thank you. Yes sure well I have utilized. Eft Ella my own healing journey started with em Dr Therapy and Process TRAUMAS I found. Emt A lot of people talk about emt are being invasive meaning that I had to return back to traumas. Eft My understanding is you know. It's less invasive. You don't necessarily always have to go back to the traumas but more about the feeling that you're having once being triggered what's what's the rising right. It's a much gentler technique and its beauty. Is this if you asked me which had Its beauty is this. Eft can be used at one of three graduated levels. The first one Gary Craig took it from licensor and gave it to the people. It's the people tool K. So we can use it for self care which is huge when we can take something out of the health professions and use it ourselves. We become empowered. I this way that we can use. That is called peer to peer. And the most beautiful thing I do. We have the teacher. Practice comes or social worker. Practice comes is I will show them how to support one another and they need never know what's going on with the other person. It's beautiful thing. The third level is much like an iceberg way underneath the water line. You see that. This tool is so deeply profoundly therapeutic and there's nowhere that I've ever found it cannot go or what it cannot do but that's the kind of work that would be done in very practiced hands certified hand people who have studied for a very long time. Why not because of the degree? It's because of their commitment to keeping their client safe anti going at a pace that respects an honors the client and keeps them safe and how to handle things when things get too hot or too overwhelming so all of those years of practice have to do with really keeping people

Evan Peikon on Harnessing Energy System Feedback for Optimal Individualization of Strength, Size and Endurance Training

"Evan. Welcome to the show today. Thanks for being here. Yeah thanks for having me none. So what Let's start off by you. Giving us a little information on what your what. Your background is as not just just to coach and what you do in the educational space but also your background is an athlete. In what will cut you into this whole thing. In the first place I come from a track and field and cross country background. The my best was the hundred meters so my entire interest with everything that I'm doing now. Kind of stemmed from competing in track and field cross country in selfishly smart to do whatever. I could to improve my own performance I'd kind of our rocky competitive career to say the least kind of bumping into some injuries a lot of bouts of Kinda slamming my head against the wall and maybe not seeing the progress that I wanted to so after spending a lot of years gone through that I kind of stepped out of competing in that sport and start to transition into cross fit and using all the different things I learned along the way and then that naturally led me to coaching athletes in this sport now being involved with an organization that works with athletes sent a handful of different sports as you say with. Us Air Davis or something about the eight hundred eight hundred runners and and Deok sedation and and lactate and everything that goes in those energy systems that I think I think the eight hundred really lends itself well to being that event that kind of sparks curiosity. Because even you're standing on the starting line of Eight hundred meter. Obviously the people. Listening can't Sean Belgium. Not a huge dude. But you're on the eight hundred starting line and you guys that are built like me the kinds of look like two miles or five characters and you look to the left you. There's a dude who's built one hundred meters sprint and probably is forty pounds on you in all of your kind of running the same times in off the bat. That doesn't really seem like it makes that much sense. Like in the hundred meters sprinter week. Probably Guess WHO's GonNa win that pretty easily if we bump it up to the two mile. We know who's going to win. But they entered meters kind of weird intersection where you have completely different body types competing in it and I think that lends itself to trying to figure out why that is like wisest dude that has forty pounds on me holding his ground or Wise Dude. Who is half my size out kicking me in the last fifty meters yeah. It's it's one of those races that even in my first days homicide probably was reading about this in high school just because I was the weird kid in the track that who brought brought along the USA Track and field. Coaching Manual Dan. O'brien on the Front of remembers that book but I remember saying that the eight hundred is the one I mean. There's all the events to an extent for sure I think the four hundred two and then I think the further you get away from that center. I think the more similar events probably can be trade for some level although there certainly are similar or differences at all levels. But it was like you look at. Arthur leader training. I mean people like Peter Snell at high. You can do high mileage eight hundred trading low mileage eight hundred trading something works. The training could be so radically different for all these different athletes on what produces the best result and it seemed like. That's that event in that the minute forty five to two minute. Maybe a little bit over two minute timespan that you just get these massive massive training differences and I think that really taps into understanding like wooden athletes to watch limitation is because even if we think of something like that really high trotting there's appeared rows really obsessed with that concept because I was reading all the Arthur yards. Stop in Highschool. I'm telling my coach like we need to run a hundred miles a week. Where training at third year forty miles a week? Which is pretty moderate volume for someone dabbling eight hundred to a mile in understanding. Now with all the things that I've seen working with like are pretty diverse body of athletes. You tend to see for example if someone has like if we would call a good delivery imitations limited. By cardiac output versus someone who's limited by Oxygen Utilization? The muscle few take something like Really High Volume Zero. Bec- training and you give it to both of those athletes. You might see the athlete with deliver in the meditation making improvements. And you see the athlete was limited by Oxygen Utilization. The muscle doesn't do anything for them. So you have one camp saying like this is the greatest thing I've ever seen the other campaign like that doesn't do anything and the reality is both of those. Statements are completely factual. Like what is one man's junk volume is the other man's greatest tool in his arsenal. And I think you could really say that about anything. In the training worlds because performances marriage of an athlete's physiological predisposition and the event demands. So I think any training protocol might or might not improve that athlete's performance and I think having that layer of individualization is kind of the next step in the training world instead of having these camps like Kito works hit works long. Slow endurance works like everything. Works for someone. It's always the person that works for always becomes the Messenger and and or the athlete. Who loved this type of trading when they were competing and it's all their athletes are going to do that and again in in I think the further you get away from the eight hundred four hundred the the more maybe that could be okay on some level. I think it's got depth of those four hundred eight hundred athletes. I don't know I mean I think a good strong training culture. Sometimes you can overcome pieces of that But I I was. I'm really curious. You just mentioned something. It was Delivery Verse Oxygen Delivery Versus Utilization. What what are the I mean? It sounds pretty straightforward. But could you get into the differences between those two? How do you measure those? How do you tell if someone when they're doing aerobic work should be Could be doing the long slow distance like junk miles like you say if they want to improve their aerobic system. That does not really help them. It's not a low hanging fruit. Yes so the way that I think about it. Alkies factory analogy for sports performance. So we imagine like we have all car factory and let's say were using hot wheels. Cars said super simple. Put them together. Maybe we like paint the hot wheels car. We slap the wheels on but the doors. I don't know how these things are made In out of all those steps putting the doors on the is by far the slowest step so we WANNA get more cars out of our factory. It's going to be a complete waste of time to paint the cars quicker steering wheels quicker instead. We want to put all our efforts to get in those doors on faster. Because that's the rate limiting step. The same thing applies in any energetic sport out of all of the different processes occurring simultaneously in our body like God knows how many there are thousands of things happening at the same time. There's really only a small handful of them. That really impact our performance in a meaningful way. So we make it really reductive. Each user have could have their own sub components we have the respiratory system is a limiter and what that's going to do an ideal world that allows you to get out to into the body ended allows you to get co two out of the body we have. We had like muscular oxidative capacity or oxygen utilization so once the board not to get into the tissue s the ability to pull the oxygen off of the hemoglobin headed into the Mitochondria and use it for energy production. Then I say delivery but other people you say cardiac output I just like the term delivery because s science in Nigeria. And that's once you get oxygen into the blood of the Alveoli through the respiratory system. That's cutting it to the working muscle. So as you're going to be the three primary energetic winners that were going to be

Minn.a students were in Puerto Rico to learn about 'energy resilience' then an earthquake knocked the power out

"Some University of Minnesota Faculty and students went to Puerto Rico to study the islands post hurricane energy infrastructure infrastructure. Then they found themselves in an earthquake swarm the quakes cut power to the island and turn the group's planned visit into a real time. Exercise is in deploying portable solar power during natural disasters. Professor Gabe Chan and student Shannon Evans Angstrom are back from Puerto Rico and in here in the studio today. Welcome back you guys. Thanks so much happy to be here. Gabe what was the plan going into the trip. So we're part of a large network called the rise network which stands for resiliency through innovation sustainable energy. It's a consortium of roughly one hundred universities that have been doing work related to sustainable infrastructure in places places like Puerto Rico and we were going there as a class trip to think about. How do we envision a more resilient energy system after big disasters like Hurricane Gain Maria? Because this won't be the last one. How do we think about building long term resilience in these vulnerable places so Shannon? That was the plan going in. What changed after you arrive? A lot of things change but also they didn't change. We continued to do our work. But definitely the tone and the gravity of the situation changed how meaningful info it was for us and what we discussed and you ended up deploying some portable solar systems. Tell us about those yes. There was a group of students that stayed closer to the epicenter senator of the original earthquake. Six point four And they works with an organization called the footprint project which is actually based in Minnesota are came from a few folks from Minnesota And they deployed a few units and some community hubs to help them charge their cell phones and just basic necessities like that gave. What's the bigger picture in Puerto? Rico go with energy resiliency now. More than two years. After Hurricane Maria Yeah so prior to Hurricane Maria Puerto Rico was roughly two percent powered by renewable energy. Which means is that about ninety eight percent of their energy imported and with Hurricane Maria? There's really highlighted how vulnerable the system was power. went out for the whole island. It took over over a year for the entire island to be re powered the big coal plants oil burners when they went down. Were not able to come back on. And so there's been a big effort to rethink think. Puerto Rico's energy system in terms of more distributed infrastructure. Things like solar farms batteries micro grids after the hurricane communities as began exploring micro grids in many places California after some of the wildfires. How do they function? And what's the future. So the problem with the grid is all all interconnected and so one surprising thing but a lot of people found after Hurricane Maria or the wildfires in California are the may have had their own solar panels and when the grid went down. They weren't able to use the power from their own. Solar panels on their roof and so with micro grizzly idea is the whole grid can go down but if part of the grid is still intact that part can separate itself from the rest and still operate. Now there's no one definition and micro grids in terms of scale so this could be as small as a small community community of five to twenty households or could be Let's say one eighth of Puerto Rico. Weren't there already so micro grids in Puerto Rico when when the earthquakes hit and I'm wondering how they did. Yes so we were actually fortunate to be in an area called Mayaguez on the western part of Puerto. Rico that has part of its own micro acro grid. So the whole grid immediately went down due to an auto trigger from the earthquakes We were in a part that actually came on relatively more quickly because of the micro grid structure they have their but as soon as we laughed the strict confines of my as we saw the power's out so even just driving five minutes out we saw the power's out. So there are these little micro micro grid deployments going on there. Is this vision to create a whole bunch of micro or mini grids throughout Puerto Rico. We're not quite there yet. California I know is considering considering a four point. Two billion dollar bond to prepare for Disasters Shannon you're studying urban and regional planning how to states and cities need to plan for climate resiliency Eh. I think what I learned. It's not so much about the relief as it is about the preparedness. There's a lot of cost savings that can come from putting in the work and the money upfront up front rather than after. It's very costly activity to do relief. Work what did this trip tell you about. Vulnerability to climate change impacts like stronger storms. It taught me a lot about vulnerability both infrastructure and also. Everyone's reliance on their government. I'm if they can't really on their government what that means for them as the US citizen. I took for granted Puerto Ricans are US citizens. But it doesn't feel like that based on how they're treated the response to Maria and even before performer. This is you know. Years of ongoing colonial relationships built up over time there's a lot of economic policies that have put them in a really poor financial official situation and dependency upon Maitland

"To avoid the worst consequences of global warming coming. The world urgently needs to cut carbon pollution but cutting pollution from the world's energy system takes time so some suggest that we also need to consider Geo engineering engineering the climate to cool it down but this drastic approach is very controversial so first we must understand the potential consequences. For example example. One idea is to spray small particles into the atmosphere to block some sunlight from reaching the earth that will suddenly cool down the planet. It doesn't address that's the cause of climate change but it can cool down. The plot of Frankoy is a professor of Engineering and Atmospheric Science at Harvard University to help scientists better evaluate approach approach coaching. His team planned to send balloon into the atmosphere. It will release a tiny amount of mineral dust. The team will study how the particles disperse and how they interact act with one another and the atmosphere around them. The experiment is so small that it will have no impact on the global climate but coach hopes it will provide information that can only two more informed discussions about so called solar.

"Country after a long struggle we achieved a victory convincing the state government to withdraw the mining license from the company in question and as a society we realized what we could achieve together we now call it the bentley affect after the area where we made a stand and there's been a great documentary of that name made about it but in my view we needed to do more than fight the old we had made the case that there was no gas shortage if australia like other countries reserved sufficient guesstimate its needs before allowing export we had pointed out that causing guess was unnecessary and would damage i water country and livelihoods what we now needed to do was to build a new to show that our region not only did not need guess that did not need to continue to rely on fossil fuels we had to demonstrate that we were well placed to meet erin needs the first coalition for community energy forum in canberra in 2014 coming soon after bentley galvanized a small northern rivers group community generation was not only possible we could make it happen as hip and wind in victoria had show on the gap the hard part was to have a community scale retailer to buy and sell the energy so generated it didn't feet with the thinking of the oligopoly of vertically integrated generators and retailers at all the economic development arguments for building a regionally selfsufficient energy system are also powerful in northern new south wales alone over three hundred million dollars leaves the region annually in payment of domestic energy bills over eighty million dollars of that is attributable solely to operating costs and profits.

"Increasing frequency of extreme weather events is obvious as the impact of a twodegree temperature increase would be on future generations since we also know that out fossil fuel by stationery energy consumption is responsible for over fifty percent of australia's carbon emissions we understand that the faster we successfully planned for and transition to renewable energies the better off we will all be so it's not surprising that regional communities are increasingly pushing for renewable energy generation we know that in out arid country we can't afford to waste water or risk contaminating out water supplies needed for agriculture on industries that have no future and large numbers of us a very aware that if we want good longterm job prospects for our children than australia should be investing as rapidly as possible in all the technologies and industries associated with renewable energy there are now nearing one hundred community energy groups around the country working on a wide range of projects and there is a steadily increasing number of local government areas who have announced plans to achieve goals such as becoming emissionsfree o one hundred percent renewable by various target dates the northern rivers of new south wales comprising the seven shy stretching from the tweet to the clarence rivas is one such region by 2014 talks had been well underway on the need to establish community and generation in the face of ongoing lack of government leadership the attempt to bring coal seem guests mining into our region was a huge wakeup call for many the area relies on agriculture and tourism as key business drivers and future development hinges on an natural beauty and clean and green image the farming community united with environmentalists and the indigenous community in defence.

"Is some of the most fascinating research in the book to me and i'll start in exercise science so in exercise science there are two predominant theories of fatigue one is called the central governor of fatigue in what the central governor of fatigue says fatigue happens in the brain before the body so the brain literally shuts down the muscles when the muscles have more to give in the brain does this because it is an evolutionary programmed protective mechanism it saying whoa you're pushing to the extreme if you push any harder like you might do some real damage and get hurt so the way that they've studied this is they've had people go into a jam and lift weights do leg curls till they were completely tapped out till they said i cannot do one more crawl their legs are quivering and shaking and then they ran an electrical current through the muscle in the muscle contracted with full force so at that told the researchers is that the muscle the energy system in the muscle still had plenty to give but the brain was putting the brakes on early by creating the sensation of fatigue so hold onto that thought that's the central governor of fatigue than the other model a fatigue and exercise science is called the cycle biological model to very very similar with that model shows is that at any given clients a physical exertion our brain is doing an evaluation in weighing perception of effort so how hard what we're doing feels versus motivation in when perception of effort is greater than motivation we slow down but when motivation is greater than perception of effort we keep on pushing so both of these two predominant theories come at the same thing from the same place which is that if you have a really strong motivation then you can push your body further and what we found is again kind of the imo of this book.

"It is actually looked at how the energy system works and it's helping to underpin that so we've perfectly expect that the clean energy system is going to continue to move forward but what they're trying to do is shift resources at states to coal industries only and that's just not the way the clean air act works but even with this rule on hold it's not these regulations are in place right now there are studies that showed that emissions for an electrical point electrical power plants are actually going to decline to the targets envisioned by the clean power plan anyway because of economic forces so is the worry overstated about what would happen today well actually i don't think it's overstated because they're still trying between the epa and deal we to set a case to go backwards to more coal even though it's not marketable even though the future is in clean energy and so we just have to be cautious and careful the one thing that this dozen you're right you're giving a great case for why the clean power plan should continue because it is continuing to underpin the way the energy world is heading but what this could do is create uncertainty that's what the utility industry does not want 'cause they make longterm investments the utility industry themselves uh some of the big power producers in they'll tell you that they are investing we had the future is not in the past because that's where money will be made that's where reliability will be stronger that's where it's less expensive for consumers they know when moving to clean energy but the worry is will uncertainty caused us to hesitate.

"From the federal level in the united states is a significant if potentially temporary blow to the process now that said there are a number of reasons to believe that the the overall process within paris and and even more broadly the overall global effort to address climate change and to continue to drive forward the transition in our global energy system that will not stop there are a lot of reasons that won't stop not least the fact that a lot of response to trump's decision has been to kind of double down and increase the effort in other places to hit those targets and one of the chief criticisms that president trump and his supporters have been putting forth about this agreement and for all time about climate change responses in general is that will look china and india in the developing world out there there are huge amidror's of greenhouse gas emissions they're not going to slow down why should the united states in its economy make a huge sacrifice while these other countries aren't going to reduce their emissions how to respond to that yeah well that was an argument the came up a lot after long ago treaty was negotiated called the kyoto protocol in 1997 and that created a lot of discussion in the kyoto protocol things were dealt with differently and there were in fact to roots of countries under that structure that had essentially different kinds of obligations in today's world twenty years later twenty plus years later it is absolutely the case that the world is no longer simply developed and developing countries it is a world where there is a lot of growth coming from middle income countries as countries embark on their development trajectories as we want them to do they are facing a world of potentially increasing emissions in china and india or examples of countries that are now major emitters even though in historically speaking they haven't been but that means that from the climate perspective those countries are very important.
