"I can still hear the crescendo of squealing and slurping that accompanied this wild and gluttonous seen it was epic just epoch to this day people. Ask me about bob combs. I tell them that he was a cross. Between jimmy stewart and old macdonald the living embodiment of everything. Dirty jobs had set out to highlight a modest good-humored man armed with an extraordinary work ethic a man who had found a new angle and thrived in a business with very tight margins as grain. Prices rose squeezing all of the farmers around him. Bob kept drawing from his endless supply of leftovers. It was hard work to be sure but it was good for his business. Good for the environment. And very good for the city of las vegas but when we first met in two thousand six bob was a man besieged by an army of angry acronyms. Hfs us epa osha as well as his neighbors who wanted to close his operation down because his pig farms smelled like a big farm. Las vegas was booming and a pig farm wasn't what hundreds of homeowners wanted so close to their brand new homes. They didn't care that. Bob had been there for decades. They didn't care that. Bob was providing a valuable service. The only thing they cared about was the smell and making it go away. Developers fumed committees formed. Petitions were circulated and hearings were held. The pressure to close down. Bobs farm was unrelenting. But bob held fast. And i'm glad he did. Because after that dirty jobs episode aired the developers tried to different tack. They pulled their resources and offered to buy bob's property. They offered him a staggering. Some seventy five million dollars. Bob past bob i said. What are you thinking. It's seventy five million dollars. bob replied. Yeah but what. Would i do with my pigs. I don't know i said kill him. Eat them. You're gonna do that anyway right. Bob didn't have anything to say to that but it occurred to me later that his real question wasn't what would i do with my pigs. It was.

"Welcome back to the gyppos hadn't showed 186650, Jimbo, When 86650546 to 16 Malloy, our guest. He is an environmental and public health consultant. And served on the transition team for the Trump administration. Let me ask you about the Trump administration. Environmentally speaking, Of course, that has become something of the conventional wisdom. That the nation is ah, virtually one giant love canal after four years of Donald Trump that he just went around, basically shoveling. Buckets of sewage on the entire country. Could you clarify that and put it in somewhat of a more balanced context? Sure. After four years and Trump administration our environment Is as clean it's not cleaner than it ever has been before the water is Clean President Trump You talk about that The air is clean. It's been it's cleaner than it was during the Obama administration. You we we we've been cleaning are Our environment continually, even though even way past the point needs to be cleaned, we we we spend so much money. One of our mental protection. It's not funny. And these, you know President Trump was very good at clamping down on the EPA and stopping the excessive regulation. Which was hurting our economy, something that we might keep in mind, by the way regarding made people turn to say a country like Sweden as the perfect example of socialist heaven on Earth. Well, yes And no. Yes, they have decided as a country for cradle to grave protection for things like health care and pensions and the like. However, the Swedes not being stupid, like some people in this world have figured out that the only way the Swedish economy can possibly afford that, and the outrageous taxes that are necessary is to have a relatively free and open free enterprise economy In point of fact, Yet businesses face a lot of taxes and Soto Soto individuals in Sweden, but Really in terms of regulation. EPA OSHA type Stuff business in Sweden I've heard has a much easier time of it than industry in this country. If it in fact, you try to put that kind of a a socialist burden on an American industry that is also saddled with a ton of regulations. That's a recipe for disaster. Yeah. You know, the Scandinavian countries have this reputation for socialism and there. They certainly do have these welfare systems but You know there there pretty much into fossil fuels and capitalism and because that's the only way you can pay for this stuff, As you said. In this country. We are. We're killing the golden Goose. People are under the misimpression that EPA is the golden Goose. During the Obama administration, You know, they're famous for issuing these job killing regulations that they would they would claim would bring You know, hundreds of billions of dollars in, um monetized health benefits. Of course, it was all nonsense. There was there was no economic benefits just killed jobs. And, uh, You know, but I'm not quite sure you know all this is his bill in a long time coming, You know, we are in our school systems. People don't learn anything anymore. You told me your incentivized to be stupid, And these people have grown up under this system, and now they're in the government and it's just It's a nightmare for all of us. 186650, Jimbo, our number 18665054626 something else to keep in mind. That is, Let's assume that tomorrow through the miracle of a magic wand, we did not burn a drop of fossil fuel, Not a drop, not a chunk of anything. That everything was electric cars, even electric boats, airplanes, whatever. We didn't burn nothing. No way. No, how everything a solar powered or or geothermal or whatever. If that happened, which, of course it couldn't. But if it did, we would still need hundreds of millions of barrels of oil just to make pharmaceuticals, plastics and a host of other things. We will have a deep thirst for oil long after if, in fact, we ever reached the day where we don't burn it anymore. Well, you know, there's this concept in Washington, the social cost of carbon Greens. You're trying to figure out um you know how much carbon you know fossil fuels actually cost society. How much do they damage society? The reality is that there's nothing in our world that we have that is not due to fossil fuels. If we stop using false feels, I know that you were just pretending there for a second. But we couldn't do that. I mean, Our society would stop. Billions of people would die. There could be no way to get food to mark. I mean, people have no idea what they're talking about. When they go off on, you know, we need to get rid of fossil fuels Army. Our society would cease to work. And people. I don't know what it is. It wished. Think I guess the idea that that if I wished something not to be the case, I'll just wish hard enough. And that will no longer have to worry about it. Czar the extent to which this happens, Go ahead. But I mean kids have been propaganda is now in school. For you know, since Al Gore's movie came out, you know 2006. We're talking Maura than No generation of school Children that have You had just been brainwashed with this nonsense of fossil fuels or bad we could get rid of them, You know, because you read the newspaper today wind and solar cheaper than coal. Uh, that's not true. Cold is the number one fuel for electricity around the world. It's solar and wind. We're cheaper India instead of building coal plants would be here solar and wind and the same with the Chinese. S o people just lied to every day by the media in schools by the government, and, um, you know, I thought I thought we were coming out of it during the Trump administration. And then we, you know, start But then this, you know Is this horror on January 20th happened? And, of course, you know the first thing Joe Joe Biden doesn't kill jobs. Well, it is. It is an unfortunate circumstance to say the least. 186650, Jimbo, When 866505462 sixes we talked to Jason in Evansville, Indiana. Hi, Jason. Hello? Yeah, yeah, I just want to, uh, touch base. Thanks. Taking my call. I work in a power plant. And, uh, you know, go far. Power plant. Excuse me. And your guest is totally right. I mean, we do so much to clean their uh What? What we do is never reported to give we do is never reported on the news. And it's really disgusting because the industry gets back still bad and you know 20 to 30% of your jobs or touched by the coal industry in the United States, by some way. And I don't know how they think they're ever gonna do away with that and still have a good stable economy was an article the other day that they want to do away with the whole generation. Um, by 2025, you know, said it was aggressive plan. But you know, at some point these battery banks, these electric cars have become a load and you have to have something to generate electricity to charge that. You know when the solar has its place, but it does not keep up with the man. 22 50% of your electricity through the Midwest still comes from coal, and I don't know how we're gonna do away with that and still think we're gonna have a good stable economy. Thanks. Take Michael. You bet absolutely course. How do you get a good stable economy out of people who never took so much as the first week of E con 101. They don't know about supply and demand. They don't know anything about wealth creation. They seem to think that the retail businesses, for example, just all have a money tree growing in the backyard. When it comes time to meet payroll, we just go out and pluck a few $100 bills off the tree. Yeah, you know, And this whole anti fossil fuel, um, movement starting to catch up with him in California, right, California Very liberal, then get rid of fossil fuel. Along comes a drought. They have less hydropower. And of course, now they have blackout. Blackouts are the foreseeable future for California, because, um They seem to be your biggest sacrifice their the welfare of their population on the you know, altar of climate politics..

"epa osha" Discussed on Conspiracy Theories

"Of the united states dick cheney for years prior stepping into the white house cheney served as the ceo of halliburton an energy company who dealt primarily in oil as is standard protocol. He distanced himself from the company. While serving as vice president to avoid potential conflicts of interest though halliburton never manufactured. Three of their acquisitions did by the early two. Thousands halliburton was at least tangentially. Involved in almost five hundred thousand asbestos claims in part due to the costs incurred they filed for bankruptcy in two thousand three shortly after their specis. Costs were estimated to be more than three billion dollars which is to say that halliburton had more than enough motivation to want to stop. Senator murray's proposed ban. We can't say that dick. Cheney used his influence to stop the bill from passing mont. We can say that halliburton gave at least one hundred and fifty thousand dollars to members of congress around the same time whatever the case. There's enough evidence to suggest that members of the government acted out of self interest to squash potentially life-saving regulations on specis. But it wasn't a shadowy government conspiracy. Lobbying is considered a legal and recognized way for organizations to influence. Law were ethical lines blurred. Maybe did any politicians break the law. It's impossible to say for sure. All things considered i give our second conspiracy theory a six out of ten know. The united states government continued to protect the bank accounts of corporations that knowingly killed american citizens legal or not. It was a failure even if it was technically done quote above board. I'm going to give this theory and eight out of ten after all. Lobbying efforts are part of the reason. People are still dying from estes today. Coming up the town of libby. Montana is left to die now. Back to the story. By nineteen eighty-nine medical experts concluded that no amount of asbestos in the air was considered safe. But despite a few victories the epa osha in the united states government struggled to regulate s bestest production in the eighties nineties and into the two thousands. Today some suspect that state and federal powers are still intentionally overlooking the ongoing damage of a specis. Their suspicion is our third and final conspiracy theory but to fully explore it. We have to once again travel back in time. In the nineteen twenties.

"Of those things that goes back and forth from time to time and, you know, we can only hope that society is getting better on this dimension. Natalie Jackson, the research director at the public, religion research. It's through the website is public, religion dot org and Natalie. Thanks so much. Trump. Thank you. It's been great talking with you back. We're going to get back to our conversation about, you know, what's, what's the status. And this is the Tom Hartman program. So stick around, we'll be back with your calls, right? And welcome back. We, if you're just tuning into the program, we have been for the last couple of hours kinda hashing out this these, these two main issues. There's a there's a number of other ones that we've talked about, at the two main issues are that, that Hillary Clinton came out yesterday and said that she thinks that Madeleine Albright's new book on fascism is, as something we should all read, and I confess. I've not yet read it, but I'm going to be looking for it and, and be that she's concerned that there's actually a very real threat of fascism in the United States of this country flipping fascist, obviously, you know, she's talking in the context of the Trump administration, their disregard for the institutions of America, their disregard for the values of America, the disregard frankly, for the people of America. You just heard that from Natalie talking about the majority of Americans are tolerant of LGBTQ people. And this administration is not. So we've been talking about that. We've been and, and the other question that we've been asking is, you know who are your favorites for president and vice president. This is our, you know, every couple of weeks now is and will continue this as we go toward the election. And it's fascinating, how things have changed frankly, there's a number of candidates that have been mentioned today that, you know, weren't even on anybody's radar just, just three or four months ago. But, you know, asking you what you think you know, who do you who would you like to see what's your dream ticket? Who would you like to see the president or vice president, or you know one or the other both? And, and why Andy in of his friends would Texas Andy. Yes. From texas. How you doing? Yeah. I'm on the air. It says you wanted to talk about fascism. Yes. Putting it on a scale to kind of relate, everything else to where we're at and where other countries have been if we say, have a plus ten represents maximized equality and maximized democracy. And at the other end of the scale, you have minus ten or you maximize any quality and authoritarianism, and I would put Nazi Germany at a minus ten. Another reference, there would be Denmark, maybe is plus five and to where we are America today, under Trump, I would ready to at minus seven and true. Like in twenty twenty for us to be at a plus seven. Yeah. You said, minus seven. Yes. For under Donald Trump. Yes. Yeah. Yeah. I don't disagree. Where do you think we were when President Obama was president? Well, I guess we somewhere, we maximise say at a plus three for the rematch say, plus three sometime after you, we certainly have your social security. We got Medicare than we had under Nixon, the EPA OSHA Clean Air Act, the clean water act and things of that sort so parts of the seventies, I think, is when we kinda peaked and it's been an Evans flow ever since then. But we've taken the significant downturn under Mr. Trump. Yeah, I, I agree. Andy might take on.

Can't you smell that smell? I'm talking about gasoline people. Why does it smell so good? While the first answer is pretty simple actually gasoline or petrol as our friends across the pond like to call. It contains a chemical hydrocarbon called benzine used to boost its octane rating and benzene naturally has a sweet scent to it that our noses are especially sensitive to in fact, it evaporates so quickly that you'd smell benzine instantly. If you just put some in a dish in the same room, you're in it is so pungent we can get a whiff of it.

It's enchanting hooks in you too far because Skinner also had it, right? When they sang that smell, the smell of death surrounds you. That's right. The smell of benzene can be fork.

You can find reveal on I tunes radio public or anywhere. You get your podcast. More reveal news dot org. Almost immediately after the attacks. Doctor started treating nine eleven responders for deep hacking, cough severe throat and nasal your -tations respiratory distress decrease lung capacities severe heartburn also known as GERD eventually Surco SIS scarring of the lungs accusations, flew. People wondered if officials had been to Optimus about the air quality in two thousand three the inspector general leaded investigation to evaluate just that the investigation found that the messaging to the press was to reassuring to suit that the PA had in some cases, publish statements without the science to support them. I read the report and spoke to the woman who led the investigation, Nikki Tinsley. She told me that her team discovered that's early. Drafts of press releases were modified to see more reassuring. The details of these changes the analysts found in a box under somebody's desk. EPA one night when they found it. And then they talk to the folks that PA about it, it it was it was huge. You know, these cautionary words had been removed from the press release before it went to the press. Tens investigation concluded that in the immediate aftermath. The message was confidence not caution and it had been influenced by pressure from the White House eventually these findings and the government's response played out on a public stage. Good afternoon in two thousand seven congress held hearings and tried to hold people accountable today, the subcommittee begins its investigation into possible substantive due process violations arising from the environmental protection, agency's handling of air quality issues following the terrorist attacks of September eleventh two thousand and one Representative across from people from the EPA OSHA. And the White House. The C span footage is actually pretty gripping. Here's Representative Keith Ellison talking to the PA's Christine Todd Whitman. Do you feel that you spoke a little bit too broadly and a little bit too soon about the actual quality of the air in the water every test that we have. All the data. We'll congressman it's fine to go through the. Yes, and knows. But I think it's important for people to understand that this. We're not whims. These were not decisions by a politician everything. I said was based on what I was hearing from professionals. My son was in building seven on that day, congressman and governor. No one governor governor. Governor. I'm not going to allow you to turn this into a personal personal for the people out here. Governor. Yes agency, that was questioned deflected responsibility in their testimony. They insisted that the statements about public safety were accurate and based in science and besides the said the enforcement of mass for first responders was out of their control. The city was in charge of that later Giuliani would point back at the they'd said the air was safe. Frankly, there is a lot of pointing fingers at the hearing and beyond lawsuits were eventually filed against the city of New Yorkers even sued Whitman herself, but the court found she wasn't personally responsible. I asked my dad what he thought about all this. Well, you can't really put on anyone person the root cause of this is some disaffected knucklehead, I don't even like to say his name that instigated the entire terrorist plot, and he caused it. However, the follow on from the federal government and the EPA contributed to it greatly. I think they gambled. And they gambled and lost. I reached out to Christine Todd Whitman who left the in two thousand three it was her name that came up almost every time. I asked people about this story while known by first responders New Yorkers and my dad in two thousand sixteen coincidentally the same year. My dad was diagnosed Whitman spoke with a reporter from the guardian. She said, I'm very sorry. That people are sick. I'm very sorry that people are dying. And if the an I in any way contributed to that I'm sorry. It was the first time she'd ever said anything like it. But it wasn't the apology first responders wanted. They continue to accuse her not doing a better job of communicating. The risk said she gave into White House pressure out on her farm in New Jersey. I asked her about it. Do you feel as though the communications at the time were influenced by politics of the moment in any way. I don't think. So no, I think in some of the way they wanted to handle the press releases was to reassure, but within the boundaries of what was safe not to reassure to the point of ignoring a health real health hazard, but to reassure that life is going to go on we're stronger than this. We're going to beat back these people, and they're not going to get us. As for the statement, she made on September eighteenth, the one my dad says he heard before taking off his mask Whitman says the media focused on the message that the air was safe not that responders should be wearing masks. I should have immediately said on the pile. They should wear respirators that part of the message was lost. And you look back and say, I should have said it another way.
