There's no kind policy that says and there has to be a water scavenging system in this design that will route that water to somewhere else useful. It's not sort of a building regulation yet is it and similarly. We haven't got a system. It's easy to implement in your average existing home so a person who's minded to want to do that bid can easily do it. They've got to put a bucket in the toilet with them in the shower with them. Heavenly to flush the toilet with the yeah. That's right. yeah so watch release is recommended in lots of different building standards and different guidance and there are some provisions in the building regulations. But they're not as sort of strict or is tied down as they could be. I guess something. Tobacco reminded in the the average amount of water. A person uses a day. So what we call per capita consumption has dropped from abou- hundred and forty eight under four six hundred forty eight leases in two thousand eleven twenty twelve to around one hundred forty one liters in thousand sixteen twenty seventeen. That varies a bit. If you've got a meter if you haven't got to meter but what the real aim could be and this was under some previous green building guidance getting it down to around one hundred or eighty litres and that can be achieved by the things that we've been talking about so gray water rain water but also things that you can do simplest turning off the tap when brushing your teeth and stay pudding. System displacement devices in your system that might be a thing called hippo which people can get from that company or a brick which displaces about a killer gram of water so there are things people can do but also the kitchen sink tends to be the most energy and carbon consumptive because that uses generally a lot of hot water. So there's a lot of carbon to be safe by saving water from your kitchen sink amusing it don't leave. The hot tap turned on all the time. Sarah thank you so much that sarah would with some good tips for us on how we can improve our green credentials when it comes to the kitchen sink. Now let's tend to textiles. The curtains carpets and other soft furnishings. As well as the contents of your wardrobe. This is a very thirsty industry to every kilo of cotton that we may require potentially tens of thousands of liters of water is the law. Isn't it and there's also a hefty carbon footprint that comes along for free as well textiles make more emissions. Would you believe it than international flights and the entire maritime distri. So what can we do to lighten the load well to get started. Katie has been having clear out. I have just pulled most of this old carpet of my says and some other old line off the floor in the kitchen. I've shampooed them scrub them. But they are not fit for purpose anymore. And i didn't really know what to do with them next. Can they be recycled. Are they destined philippeville. What do i do. Luckily i knew an expert sarah gray from the uk based ngo ramp. The waste and resources action programme. Best thing i think is probably to try to find somebody else who would be grateful to use it if it's not usable again. Some local councils do provide a collection service. But the other things he could do Chopping up the cockpit for example in using it hops as edging for animals. Maybe at the local animal rescue center. Something i enjoy during his gardening allowing us old carpet as berea for the weeds match with synthetic holes in its plants hurt. You can move it around but he will declare claim another patch of weeds. Great idea i've been meaning to get my veggie bed ready for ages and it sounds like more than enough textiles are already going to landfill. Households were throwing away About three hundred thousand tons of clothes that year and about sign magadan a bit more of household textiles. So things like cut bed linen towels things like that as much as is five hundred thousand tons of those were thrown away. The last time we counted in one gay think about like one ton of those textiles. You'd probably be up to fill a large maybe a long way then so five hundred thousand of those times In one year two huge amount. So what is the carbon footprint. Impact of diverting would be landfill items and giving things another lease life so effective throwing things out. There is an impact associated. Wait them. That's as small amounts of of the carbon footprint with greenhouse gas emissions especially maytham coming from from landfills by using textiles of costa avoid thoughts. But the other things that were avoiding having to produce as much in the first place. That's what to do with the old stuff but when it comes to buying new home furnishings. How do you separate the green products from the greenwash. That is a really good question and greenwash has been around for a long time. But i think it's a real concern to buy a minute. What would really need to be able to do this to get information on the products for buying a bill to check that information to see by the That isn't easy at the moment. One way you can check is perhaps finding out bitch about the labels the payroll things by to your research. Pops needs to see what those labels main do they actually offering to do by saying that something is unique Another and another is just looking on the company's website selling the artem seeing that sustainability policies. But at the moment we're having to do quite a lot of work ourselves to get the kinds of information there's definitely think for clearer labelling and more information just being available with the product itself. One option is to move away from using raw materials in the first place the more that we can use old textiles Textiles get when they're not usable anymore is kind of the optimum way to recycle because you create a continuing go on and on Potentially that is a really great way available to stats with boyd More raw materials. Which is why we take. The highest environmental impact comes from if we can just keep things going in that continuous cope than that really is is why ridiculous.

"I'm delighted to say John Everard has nip touched the studio in his back in again with his paper reviewing castle. Now. Welcome come back. Joan haven't seen you for at least a few minutes, right? I can't tell you. The Putin Kim summit. This is a big amount amount of posturing wasn't. It wasn't just on the Russian side almost pure posturing. The all that Putin really wanted. The summit was the photo which equality within ten minutes of these meeting each other he wanted. So the rotor still counted that he was player in solving the conundrum of the Korean peninsula, and that Russia is super doesn't get left out of things, but that and perhaps resuscitation of the old six-party tolls. Which is the form that used disgusted transaction where Russia had to seat. That's about all the Putin's times stood to gain from the the summit Kim Jong-Un on the other hand being sui. President Putin probably does the image no home, but he came with a long winding list of things he wanted the Russians to do for him. Now, we don't know exactly what on spa behind the closed doors. But we do know that there wasn't actually any riddance. Antef for President Putin to go with any of them anything from political support in this cure to council, economic assistance. I mean, Russia's broke heaven's sake to imitate wanting the north Chris really wanted was specs ability over North Korean workers in Russia. Remember that under United Nations Security council resolutions that all supposed to leave by twenty second December that'll be a blow to North Korea. And we finish all the kimberlin bent Putin's over that Kim Jong unlikely to have got out of the summit with Putin other than a photo opportunity with the big, man. This is the problem probably not very much and that will make his second failed summit in a road this copy looking good back home. And remember that all this time. The North Korean economy is in deep trouble earlier this year, the North Koreans went knighted nations food aid, which is a desperate thing to do. And thought they wouldn't do stay really very wanted to reinforce the point about two weeks ago. A memorandum and tone. A memorandum of the North Korean foreign ministry leaked it was all about the food situation. The harvest in two thousand eighteen ten percent down on the twenty seventeen office something like five hundred thousand tonnes of grain short. And the Miranda said this is really serious. Untold is it's redes- to get as much a disposable the regime is Katie wanted. So Kim gone to summits to fails goes back empty-handed. He hasn't sold economic problems. He hasn't got any sanction relief. He mentioned the idea of the two summits the first on being with Donald Trump, and no one was really expecting that to succeed given that no one really expected what the those that have no clear, a we'll go with it. But surely if you are trying to rattle Donald Trump's cagey Gunston next of Letterman, Putin doesn't work anymore. I mean, Donald Trump the White House in general knows that Russia has got very little to offer North Korea. And it's been greeted the whole Senate being greeted by by the White House with a huge shrug. If Kim Jong what Putin let him. I mean, he's not gonna get anywhere. It provides it a most amusement is a sideshow. Anything let's move onto the Sri Lankan bombing aftermath.

"Petition for summit has been on the table since may last year whenever of made it to the North Koreans on the North Koreans typically set. Yes, maybe we'll think about it. And the fact is happening now, is course to do with the failure of the Hanoi summit. Russia hates to be left out of things particularly events that concern neighboring countries if feels it ought to have a role in solving the North Korean problem. But as no idea what that role might be. It hasn't got the kind of money. The economic cloud that China has to help the North Koreans out. It knows very well that it can posture in the Security Council asking for sanctions relief. But until the United States decide is not going to veto any resolution evolve. Fishing, any of the stress Lucien Russia content much likes and knows very well that can't actually change anything. I'd apart from that. I mean economic links between Russia and North Korea that are some, but they are frankly, Feddie minor. I think the reasons it was nice encapsulated by the gift of grain that Russia gave North Korea a couple of weeks ago. Enormous funfair two thousand tons. This is against a grain shortage in North Korea of five hundred thousand tonnes his little bit of petty cash. But that's about all I can do. I think there's another aspect to this in talking about trade is that Russia is in a slightly difficult position here because over the last ten years it's developed a very productive relationship with south Korea, South Korea has a lot of an involvement in Russia's economy and the relations between South Korea and Putin personally have been extremely good. So North Korea aspect of ads potential. Really, depending how it works out. It could either be productive or it could be very complicating in what is become a very thriving relationship. John I wondered if this was perhaps a bit of window-dressing does Kim want to show Trump that he does have other alternatives is something of that. Although I think the Americans are quite realistic about how far the Russians come all more pointedly cannot go in helping North Korea window-dressing, yes, also mostly for Putin on what Putin really want out of the summit is the photo op to be seen to be engaged North Korea to be seen to matter through. It's going to be a quite unbuttoned summit. If it goes ahead. I mean, the north Chris confirm this you the in the first few minutes of the leaders meeting. Putin get everything that he wants the cameras click. He smiles unforeseen on whether go behind closed doors is the North Koreans who are going to be doing all the begging. They won't Russian political assistance. They want Russian economic aid. They want Russia to to to put more into the Russell and economic zone. They wanted particular Russian officials are saying for Russia to ignore the twenty second. Deadline by which the United Nations. Akita council requires them to victims all the North Korean workers in Russia, but putting has almost no incentive to go with any of these ideas. And I suspect that the summit will be largely putting finding different ways to say yet. And just finally to you. Both Washington has offered per spirited to North Korea in return for denuclearization of Russia's looking at ways to improve the loss of North Koreans to is that really what can once isn't his control of his citizens to keep them poor and to maintain a week society, relative to the state it used to be that has changed ever since he announced the change in political line Hof with you last year to focus on the economy. His neck is on the line. He has to live a perspective. Those critical moment in the Singapore summit where he allowed the footage of him doing his walkabout in Singapore. His drive around smart limousine in Singapore to include all the background. All the bright lights, the shots for goods, the traffic and everything he was getting his people vision of the future to deliver on he's struggling. I mean, I agree..

"Around the area and some power outages as well because of a summit this week in Hanoi Vietnam between President Trump and North Korea's Kim Jong UN I spoke with CBS billeting analyst retired army Colonel Jeff McCausland about what this could mean. And certainly the hopes coming out of finale, Asians are quite high because the first time it was largely criticized by many people as being long on pomp and circumstance but short on substance, the two sides agreed to a very very document on denuclearization of the Korean peninsula without a clear definition of what denuclearization mitts. What the Korean peninsula? Geographic turns fully lastly steps to move in that direction. So I think everybody is holding their breath to see. So there is concrete steps that both sides make to move in that particular direction, we have to be prepared for perhaps a breakthrough that would be wonderful. But also paired for failure. Don't forget there's a possibly at work at all. Then we could see this whole thing breakdowns. What's the dynamic? I guess it. Maybe maybe the symbolism or the the hopes that this meetings in Vietnam. Who of course, the US had a war with the relations are fairly normalized now and the leader of North Korea who we also had a war with who does not have normal relations on his peninsular with the US. Is there some kind of symbolism there? Hey, kim. Look, look what you could have thing. Here. United States have fighting a very long war in Vietnam. And now we see Vietnam heading recovered being economically successful. I think by bringing Kim there. It's an effort to show him.

I don't wanna get too personal. But I guess did did insurance help you out there? It did. And also a lot a lot of people donated which was just absolutely overwhelming. I mean, some of the some churches donated up, you know, tens of thousands of dollars to help us out. And that's why we're in this house and. About one hundred days is just devastating fire, which by the way, took everything all of our inventory, absolutely everything. We wind up with a few cameras some computers and two suitcases from. But you're still in business, right? Yeah. We're we're we're back up and running again, we're we're actually shipping out this week for the first time good for you keeping product you. Well, let's talk a little bit about the mound builders, and I've got to tell you, you know, in my days in Saint Louis. I would go over to Cahokia every once in a while and see the Cahokia mom's very fascinating. But tell me about the mound builders, and in your opinion of all squad. Let's let's start to hokey the site. I feel that the site. First of all the plaza is forty five acres, and it's pretty much dead level when I say that it's level within two inches. You can do this and modernity because he got earthmovers and does IRS and transits. And now we've got lasers and and GM. Yes. Coordinators, but you look back three thousand years two thousand years and it begs the question, how did they level a forty five acre plaza more so amount of Cahokia is the largest earth amount in North America. Upwards of I would say definitely over five hundred thousand tonnes give you an idea. What that looks like that's a lot of dirt. So it's a lot of dirt. It's basically, you would take dump trucks fill them with dirt. And you have about two hundred and fifty miles back to back of dump trucks. That's what it would take to build Cahokia. And and it it's like we're supposed to believe that native Americans these Flint hose or the scapula of a deer and went out, and and Doug Victor basket by basket, hold it. And it took earlier earlier archaeologists said, well, it must've taken two hundred years. But now, they they they opened up the mountain fairly recently the last twenty years, and wait a minute. You know, this thing was about twenty years. So that that changes the equation, and what that amounts to five hundred thousand let's just rather than off the five hundred thousand that's about thirty million thirty million single buckets versus weighing about thirty pounds each. We actually hired a Flint Napper, George a guy. Created museum pieces. And so he made us a replica of a ho that was used allegedly used to build Cahokia and all these other mounts all over the United States. So we hired we went out with our cameras. We watch this stuff. Timed it to to see how long it would say to dig. Let's say thirty pounds of dirt has it gathered up in his hands put it in some sort of a container. And then shrug it to the site. We've we've never even touched on the compaction the dirt and the shaping of the dirt. This is extremely and we have chief Joseph prevalent who's a first nation. Peace chiefs. And we asked him chief. You know, what what's the deal here? Why is it that native Americans? Remember killing the giants. But don't remember gold in the mountains. And he looked at me and on-camera basically because we didn't we built some replicas that were much smaller. We we do this. These were here before we go if they didn't build them if they didn't build them who did. The giants. And this is this is this is the first in a series or just called on the trail of a Netflix. I'm actually working on the second civil the out in March. It's an ambitious schedule. I'm trying to turn out for one hour films a year because this stuff is everywhere.

Okay, bad. You know, you watch it with your your side is ready. And but it's it, okay. There's really great information in their seventy five million. I were killed during the great extermination on ninety five percent were wiped out during the great extra summation, leaving only three point five million this over four hundred. Years of just slaughtering of native people across America L, just across rows Lord. South America and North America does across the board. Points five hundred thousand tonnes of gold restall biking Philip of Spain. Spain was really really atrocious because he really focuses on mostly like Latin American South America because it's Latin history. There was a thousand years peace amongst most of the natives like people always talk about how like oh. They were slaughtering each other that came in when we when the Europeans came in and like made them amongst themselves. And we're weaponising different groups to take out each other my God. Ow.

And they were down in the Caribbean in a Florida area, and they were enslaved and killed about three million of them. Oh my God. Three billion. It's again like, and this is in the Caribbean just in the Caribbean. So like when he calls it, you know, the great extermination. By no oversight.

"Within seven years have passed since a monster earthquake, and so NAMI struck northeast, Japan and triggered what became after noble. The worst nuclear disaster in history at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant when three of its six reactors melted down hot fuel turn to molten lava and burn through steel, walls and concrete floors to this day. No, one knows exactly where inside the reactor buildings the fuel is and it is so deadly. No human can go inside to look for it. So the Japanese company that owns the crippled plant has turned to robots. Former good robots robots climb stairs and even robots that can swim into reactors flooded with water there equipped with three d scanners sensors and cameras that map the terrain measure radiation levels and look for the missing fuel. This is part of a massive cleaner. It's expected to cost nearly two hundred billion dollars and take decades has anything like this cleanup in terms of the scope ever happened before. No, this is unique situation here this never happened in human history. It's a challenge that we've never had before rake. Barrett is a nuclear engineer and former department of energy official who oversaw the cleanup of the worst nuclear accident in newest history Three Mile Island. He was hired as a senior adviser by TEPCO. The Tokyo Electric Power company that owns the plant and is in charge of the effort to find the missing fewer. He's also advising on the development of new robot like the six legged spider robot that engineers designing hang from scaffolding and climb onto equipment. He describes them. As very Vance working robots that will actually be the ones with long muscular arms laser cutters, and such that will go in and actually. Take the molten fuel and put it in an engineer canister and retrieve it should we think of this as a project like sending someone to the moon. It's even a bigger project in my view. But there's a will here to clean this up as there was a will to put a man on the moon, and these engineering tasks can be done successful. Why not just bury this place? Why not do what they did at Chernobyl? Just cover it up bury it and just leave it here. All in you know, in enclosed number one. This is right next to the sea. We're one hundred yards from the ocean. We have typhoons here in Japan. This is also a high quake zone, and it's going to be huge earthquake. So these are unknowns that the Japanese and no one wants to deal. Earthquake that caused the meltdown measured nine point the most powerful ever recorded in Japan. Triggered a series of some NAMI waves that swept away cars houses and entire towns killing than fifteen thousand people. Fukushima Daiichi the enormous waves washed over the plant letting the reactors and knocking out power to the cooling pumps that had kept the reactor cores from overheating lake Barrett. Took us to a hill. Overlooking the reactors where the radiation levels are still relatively high. So this is actually right where it all happened, the heart of the disaster right here breath as reactor number one reacting to react to number three. And when the earthquake happened one hundred miles away these buildings all shook in this Howard's all show. But the design was such that they were they were safe, but Forty-five minutes later ways were racing in salami waves from the earthquake and there were seven waves the came in at forty five feet hot. Then put the station and what we call station. Blackout. They had no power and the chorus got hotter. Inside and hotter and hotter again until dinner. Radium started to melt comedy tons of radioactive waste was developed here. Probably five hundred thousand tonnes each built how long will it be lethal? I will be lethal thousands of years. What we're talking about really is three meltdowns. Yes. It was truly hell on earth the meltdowns triggered huge explosions. It sent plumes of radioactive debris into the atmosphere forcing the evacuation of everyone within a twelve mile radius about one hundred sixty thousand people in all. Weeks later. Tepco officials engaged in so-called kowtow diplomacy. Discuss townspeople to be raped them as they prostrate themselves in a politician.
