"To national news, Nancy lions is standing by in D.C., hey. Thanks, Tim. We are waiting to hear from President Biden as he and First Lady. Jill Biden are in Puerto Rico to survey hurricane damage. President Biden will announce more than $60 million in funding to strengthen Puerto Rico's resilience to flooding as he visits the island to observe recovery efforts after devastation left by hurricane Fiona, the funds come from the infrastructure law that Biden signed last year to help bolster levies reinforce flood walls and establish a flood warning system. Hurricane Fiona caused catastrophic flooding and knocked out much of the power on the island in September. In Washington, I made me more as Bloomberg radio. 5 days after hurricane Ian slammed into Florida crews still say they're finding victims of that storm. The death toll is now up to 68 with all but 7 of those in Florida and the state's emergency management director Kevin Guthrie says crews are working to restore power. For those that can receive power, the estimates are that they will have restoration done by Sunday. Guthrie says more than 600,000 floridians are still without any electricity. Insurance appraiser say insured losses have risen to as much as 57 billion. President Biden will be traveling to Florida Wednesday The Supreme Court is back in session and refusing to expand gun rights.

The Democrats Have Never Been SO Excited About a Hurricane
"Now want to talk about a hurricane politics. I've never seen the Democrats so excited about a hurricane and they're excited because they have been unable to land any blows on Ron DeSantis. And so they think, well, at least the hurricane will do our work. And so, you know, just this morning that you have, you have CNN and they're literally interviewing people to try to find inconveniences like, oh, at my apartment complex, the pool was closed. There's a really long line to get food. Yeah, but to be fair, this is a catastrophic hurricane. It's a catastrophic. No, no. And we were just we were there. We were just in Naples this past weekend and I had an event there on Saturday and it was a really good event and the funny thing was Debbie heard about the hurricane even before the event. On the flight two Florida, I go, oh my gosh, there's a hurricane headed to Florida. There's a hurricane headed to Naples because at the first, that's where the trajectory looked like it was headed to Naples. Now, I have been around hurricanes since I was ten years old. I've lived on the Gulf Coast of Texas almost all my life. And so I have lived through many, many hurricanes, including some here in the Houston area, and I know that they're nothing to laugh at because they are very catastrophic and especially if you live near the coast. There's a storm surge which could be ten, 20 feet high, sometimes depending on the size of the storm. On the category of the storm. So it's very detrimental. The winds are horrific and if it sits over the area for a long period of time like Harvey did back in 2017, it creates catastrophic flooding for the area. So I know the funny thing is we did the event on Saturday, no problems. In fact, beautiful in Naples and then we got out on Sunday to come back to the podcast and in fact when we left the hurricane up here to be missing the Naples area.

The Importance of Generators
"You can have one of these generators that are external to your home Now if you're flooded like this like you can see on in Florida they're not going to do you much damn good But if you're not flooded and yet you have these massive electrical outages you would want the generator operating on natural gas or propane as a backup And as we are a nation that is falling off the roof for electricity rather than having diverse forms of energy I think you're going to find these generators necessities at some point And their prices will continue to go up but you want to generate in my view That is fueled by fuel not by electricity because as you can see in Florida the first thing in terms of energy that be hit is electricity Now I know that gas stations aren't working and all the rest of it But that said you know you make sure you fill up your car you have enough in your car You don't drive it unless you have to to get out of there But it's going to be a lot harder If you have an electrical car in Florida I can tell you that So we can all learn lessons from this
Roger Schulman: Hurricane Ian Is Much Worse Than Hurricane Charley
"Well, and let's talk about Fort Myers sanibel. You talk about all these areas that are now directly in this path. It bears repeating. You talk about Charlie, but I've seen a number of reports that say that Ian is exponentially worse than Charlie. It is because Charlie was a fast moving storm. It came, it went. There's going to be a lot more flooding and storm surge problems with this one because of its slow motion forward. That's it got a lot of our forecasters here concerned because we're going to get rain dumped on us in huge amounts. We've already had too much rain in August and September and that means the trees. Excuse me, the tree roots are very loose. So we're going to lose a lot of trees and we're going to have electrical. We're going to have electrical problems too with lines down. Now they do have 27,000 linesman ready to help from all over the southeast to jump in once this is over, but it is going to be pretty devastating for a while. Okay,
Roger Schulman: It's Too Late to Evacuate
"I was talking, we were asking, I was asking you about evacuation, I know governor desantis said it's essentially too late now to evacuate. Why is that? Is it just because of the rapidly deteriorating conditions? That's exactly it. If somebody gets stuck, there's no way to safely rescue them. The flooding can be bad. They've shut down the skyway bridge, which is the main bridge between the Tampa Bay Area and Sarasota manatee, which means people can't get over that. The winds are much higher now and around noon we're expecting this thing to actually hit with the very high winds. So if somebody gets out there, gets stuck, they're going to be in the middle of it, so better to stay where they are as dangerous as it is to be outside in the elements themselves.

Gov. Ron DeSantis Warns of Flooding, Encourages Evacuation
"Governor desantis at a press conference today cut one go There will be catastrophic flooding and life threatening storm surge And so if you're on Florida's Gulf Coast from Naples all the way through the Tampa Bay Area and some of the counties north of that that could be something that happens If you're under an evacuation order is evacuate to higher ground that is going to be safe from the type of surge and flooding And now it appears it's going to hit a little more south and a little bit more east Cut two go And our recommendation is to heed those evacuation orders What those evacuation orders are doing is identifying people that live in areas that are vulnerable to major storm surge And that storm surge can be life threatening There's certain things we can protect against in terms of the wind and the structures and we've got great building codes But when you have 5 to ten feet of storm surge that is not something that you want to be a part of And mother nature is a very fearsome adversary So please heed those warnings You do not need to evacuate to another state You don't need to go hundreds of miles away Their shelters that are open and all of these counties at this point the important part of if you're under an evacuation order is evacuate to higher ground that is going to be safe from the type of surge and flooding that we're fearing with this storm

Better Safe Than Sorry
"The worst natural disasters are the fires and the floods. And probably more so the floods because it doesn't destroy everything. Things are still there, still standing, but it's all destroyed because of the mold and the mildew. It's a terrible thing. And when I was a kid, dad got transferred down to right outside of New Orleans, and so we went through our fair share of the hurricanes and the tropical storms and the flooding and assisted terrible thing. I know our House got hit when I was a kid and you lose everything. Photographs, paintings, you name it. It's all furniture, it's all gone. So certainly nothing look, just do what do what the folks are telling you to do down there. And yeah, there will be, look, yes, I know the weather guessers are not, yeah, I get it. They're pretty much always wrong. I know that, but you never know when something is going to be big. And so better safe than sorry, that's what I say. But I will say this. Last year, you know, every year they come out and they say, this is going to be the worst year for hurricanes in the history of hurricanes. And it always turns out not to be true. And the same thing for this year, by the way. They came out early on in the weather guesser said, hey, look, this is going to be the worst year. The worst season for hurricanes and the history of recording hurricanes. And it turned out not to be on what the letter I and this is the first one that's actually impacting American soil, so there there you go. All
"flood" Discussed on Marketplace with Kai Ryssdal
"Okay, moving on from those healthy finances Justin was talking about to the downright unhealthy weather across much of the country and in many parts of the world right now. In the UK, people are bracing for some of the hottest temperatures in recorded history. Dangerous levels of heat are expected in parts of the U.S. today as well. Schools around the country are preparing to deal with these ongoing and worsening effects of global warming. High temperatures yes, but also more flooding. A 2017 study by pew found thousands of schools are in areas subject to flooding, and when they do flood, it can cost millions to rebuild. Marketplaces Stephanie Hughes has more. School had been in session only a few weeks when intense rain hit on a Saturday last August in humphreys county in rural Tennessee. Christy Brown works for the school system there and said it was like a tsunami. I think the official number was right around 21 inches of rain. In a matter of several hours. Basically, there was just nowhere for that water to go. So that water flooded buildings, including an elementary school and a junior high school, which were destroyed. Brown says more than 20 people died in the flooding, including three students. And if it had happened during the school week, more lives would have been lost. So now they're planning to rebuild, but they don't want to do it in a floodplain. The biggest challenge is for us to be finding suitable spaces because everyone here is needing those same spaces. Brown says they're retrofitting an old acme boot factory as a temporary school. Businesses and low income housing were also destroyed, so land not likely to flood, is that a premium. Brown says some of the cost was covered by insurance, and they're receiving money from fema in the state of Tennessee. But part of the cost will be borne by the community too, says Matt casal, with the public interest research group or perk. Having to rebuild or repurchase all kinds of supplies after a flood is really impactful and would set a school back. As schools rebuild, there is an opportunity to get ahead of future natural disasters using solar panels and microgrids to provide power. Says Lara shifter with the Aspen institute. People within that community can go to the school. They can access emergency services. They can access power when they need it. Shifter points out, many communities have a
"flood" Discussed on Marketplace with Kai Ryssdal
"In Washington, D.C., I'm Kimberly Adams in for Kai rizzle. It's Monday, July 18th. Good to have you along. As we mentioned last week, banks and corporations have been issuing their second quarter earnings, and those reports, yes, tell us how the companies are doing, but also give us an indication of how the broader economy is doing. This morning, Goldman Sachs said profits fell almost 50% compared to last year, thanks in part to a slowdown in corporate deal making, which helped push down profits at Bank of America, too. At the same time, banks are reporting consumer and business lending has been growing over the past year. We asked marketplaces Justin Ho to look into what all that's telling us about the economy right now. The big reason consumers have been borrowing more is because they've been spending more on their credit cards. I mean, it's still full steam ahead, I think, from a credit perspective. That's Andrew Davidson with copper media. He says people are also taking out personal loans and using buy now, pay later services. You have this intensely competitive environment in which consumers have more access to credit than ever. Meanwhile, corporate borrowing has been growing at the fastest pace in nearly 15 years, says Mike Mayo, bank analyst with Wells Fargo securities. He says that's in part because businesses have been trying to build up their inventories. You're also seeing more expansion of businesses. And that was placed on hold to some degree during the pandemic. Many business owners have been taking out loans because they're worried that if they wait, those loans will get too expensive. This is Karen Kerrigan. CEO of the small business and entrepreneurship council. I mean, the cost of capital is only going to increase as rates go higher as the fed makes additional moves. Kerrigan says the uptick in business borrowing could also be a sign that businesses want cash on hand to help them through a downturn. In fact, banks themselves say they're setting aside more money in case borrowers default on their loans. Nate Toby is the founder of complete bank data. It is better to be the concerned banker at the beginning and save up too much versus waiting too late to recognize the losses. But Mike Mayo, with Wells Fargo securities, says banks aren't setting aside nearly as much in reserves as they did at the start of the pandemic. Then you were looking at unemployment rates that might approach 15%. Now unemployment is under 4% and maybe it goes up some. But it's night and day versus the pandemic. And right now, Mayo says, borrowers finances are healthy. I'm Justin Ho, from marketplace. On Wall Street today, the same concerns those banks have, where are the markets a bit as well?
"flood" Discussed on Rear Vision
"What does history tell us about floods in Australia and what do we know about floods in the future? The two things we can learn about floods when you look back over history, this firstly, they are very unpredictable. On raw in 18 armor, Professor of hydrology at the university of Melbourne was a practitioner for many years and I'm now an academic with a focus on flood estimation and flood risk. So the occurrence of flooding in Australia is highly variable and in fact Australia is one of the most variable countries in the world when it comes to flat occurrence. And the thing about these floods is that generally they are unpredictable, so they vary in an unpredictable manner. Probably the second main point you can gather from looking at history of floods in Australia is that small floods are becoming smaller and big floods are becoming bigger. And that's a result of our changing or warming climate. There are two things happening here under climate change with warmer air temperatures, the atmosphere can hold a larger amount of moisture. So when it rains, you end up getting higher rainfall intensities. So that impact tends to increase rainfall severity and therefore flood severity. But there's one factor that offsets that increase. And that's the fact that our soils are becoming drier because there's less rainfall overall, the soils are becoming drier. So when it does rain, there is a larger proportion of rainfall into the soil and doesn't contribute to floods. So the drying soils absorb a lot of the smaller rainfall events are produced how smaller floods. So therefore small floods are getting smaller, but as the rainfall intensities get higher and higher, they offset the ability of soils to absorb that additional rainfall and the floods get bigger. How easy is it to predict floods? There are two ways that you can predict floods. One is for planning purposes and for those kinds of exercises you need to understand or what's the likelihood of a flood occurring in every year and we think in terms of flood risk for that. So typically, residential areas are designed to be above the floods that have a risk of it being exceeded one in a hundred chance per year. And we have pretty good statistical and modeling techniques to estimate those floods. And I think our ability to estimate flood risk is generally pretty good. The thing that is making this quite difficult at the moment is the fact that with our climate changing, when we use history to do our modeling and apply our statistical techniques, the difficulty there is that the world is changing and therefore observations and our understanding gain from the last hundred years of observations are not necessarily relevant to what's happening over the next 20 years, for instance. That's the difficulty or challenge with our estimating floods for planning purposes and design purposes. But the other kind of thought prediction we need is what they call operational or in real time floods. So this is where we know a severe rainfall is imminent. We've need to provide warning to people to either get out of the way evacuate or take some kind of action. Now that kind of real-time forecasts where we're trying to predict what is the flood going to occur in the next 6 or 12 hours or 24 48 hours, our ability to estimate that can be quite difficult, largely because our rainfall, there's a lot of uncertainty about rainfall forecasts because knowing that a rainfall is going to occur is helpful, but for flood prediction we need to know exactly where that rainfall is going to occur. And it's difficult to predict ahead of time where exactly in the landscape of rainfall event is going to occur. The rainfall events vary across space and time. And those are also factors that have a big influence on whether the flood is going to be large or small or when it's going to peak. We are going to be getting more floods in the future. They may be going to get more severe. With climate change, that is the prediction, but even if they don't get more severe or more frequent, their frequent and serious enough. So what I'm saying is, I think we need to start working together. We have enough knowledge now. We've experienced enough floods. It's not lack of science, or lack of knowledge that is our problem anymore. It's lack of will. I'm very conscious that people build where they're allowed to build and develop where they're allowed to develop as well. So what we actually need is a whole of government approach and working with the developers and the community to stop building in these places, or at least build different, we've got massive legacy issues on a historian. I look at legacy, some of these places have been built in places they shouldn't have been built. We need to stop doing that. At the moment, I'm also seeing that we're making the problem worse. We know where the vulnerable places are. We shouldn't be putting more people in them. But we need government will to do that. And it's a big step. One thing is for sure you can not prevent floods. They funds will occur regardless. And it's simply a matter of time before another large flood will impact the city of Brisbane. The communication of flood risk, I suppose, is something that engineers haven't done particularly well in the past. Using return periods to describe floods, I think is very unfortunate and gives people the wrong sense about what is the real risk that a flood may occur. Just by our example, the 2011 events flood peak in Brisbane was assessed to be about a 1% annual exceedance probability event. So that means that in any given year, there's a one in 100 chance that you'll get a flood of that magnitude. That's not to say that you then have a long period of time before you will get another large flood. It just means that every year there is a 1% chance of bent right now to occur on this. By way of contrast, the event that we've just experienced, the peak level in Brisbane, is only on the order of say a one in 17, and you might see it probably. So you will get large floods into the future, and it's inevitable that they will occur into question of learning to adapt to living with those folks. Rob is a retired flood engineer.

Damages could be between thirty one and forty. Four billion dollars of that cost came from the destructive winds. Some of it was related to business interruptions but a lot of it was due to flood damage today. The cost of insuring against such damages got a lot more expensive for some homeowners. The national flood insurance program says it's changed its pricing system to more accurately reflect the flood risk of individual properties for more on the changes to the program and what it means for policyholders. I'm joined now by wall street journal reporter ariane campo flora's in miami. Hi thanks for being here. Sure thing my pleasure. So iran before we get to you the changes here. Can you tell us a little bit more. About what prompted the national flood insurance program to do this rate reassessment and create this new system. Sure yeah i mean. The existing system had been in place for decades. And it had just gotten kind of old and outdated it was based on very rudimentary variables and so people's flood insurance. You could have you know homes with very different kind of risk profiles that would be paying the exact same rate and there was a concern that it was creating inequities in the system and that you had and many cases lower value homes that were ending up subsidizing higher value homes and so they undertook this significant overhaul of the system to have the rates be tailored to an individual property and to that properties actual flood risk. It tell us a little bit more about how the new pricing system works and attempts to do that to more accurately account for flood risk. Does it expand the scope of the previous program. Does it takes into account a lot of additional variables so the previous one would just look at where you were in a flood map in a flood zone. The new system. I holes in a lot of data that they've gathered that the national flood insurance program got from partners that it worked with and they look at variables including the distance. Your home is from a particular body of water the height of the first floor. The replacement cost to rebuild the house. Should it be significantly damaged so they pulled in a lot more variables to be able to kind of more precisely gauge the risk of your particular property in the past couple of years and the past couple of months. Even we've seen the impact of stronger storms and learned about new areas that are now considered at greater flood risk. Can you give us a sense of how much of the country is impacted here by this new system people have fled policies across the country. But but yeah. The most significantly impacted areas are going to be these coastal areas so along the gulf coast texas all the way down to florida and then up the eastern seaboard and those areas are getting impacted. More and it's places up in the northeast. That didn't really need to think about this as much are having to think about it now. We saw that with remnants of hurricane ida that moved across that region recently now there are some homeowners who are now facing much higher premiums because of the new pricing system. Can you tell us what you heard from some of them. According to fema this is a minority of the cases because according to them in an analysis that they did the increases should be minor for many many people. Some people will actually see decreases but there is a portion of people that are going to be seeing really significant increases. So as an example. I spoke to one gentleman in saint petersburg florida named chris. Daly who's building a new home and recently got quoted a new policy premium. This home. you know. He's building it seven feet above the base flood elevation. Which is the the level at which water is expected to rise in a one hundred year flood and still his annual premium is going to jump enormously from four hundred forty one dollars currently to eventually close to five thousand dollars over time. That is eventually going to become a very hefty premium. More than ten times. What he's paying. Now how is this likely to impact where people are choosing to live. If they're having to now consider higher premiums obviously the prospect of paying more money could be a deterrent to some would be homeowners especially in coastal communities. People that i spoke to analyze you know insurance and real estate markets think that it could have an impact because obviously if your moving into an area where the flood insurance you know until now may have accounted for a relatively small percentage of what your monthly payments are and now that balloons to like a much higher figure. That's going to rule out Certain areas where people who are middle income or or even lower income and so. I think that's really where people are expecting. More of an impact is in that middle income range for wealthy people who want to live on the waterfront and have their boat and Live that lifestyle. They're going to be able to absorb higher premiums even if they're significantly higher. It's a different thing for people who need to secure mortgage and have a certain cap that they can't go beyond for them living in really vulnerable low lying areas maybe much more much harder to pull off and what about on the other side of that for municipalities especially some waterfront communities that are trying to attract people to come and live there. What kind of considerations are they having to make now. Yeah i mean that's that makes it tougher you know again. I think for wealthy people on waterfront properties that market is likely to continue to thrive and have a lot of demand. But you know. I spoke to one custom home. Builder named that car. Who's also in the saint petersburg area who said that you know. He recently backed out of property. Purchase because of these new flood insurance changes in his concern that that would be a more difficult property to sell and so in the areas that are vulnerable to flooding but aren't necessarily like right on the water. Those properties are may become less attractive and so cities that are counting on that development in that home-buying to fuel their local economies are going to have to grapple with that. There is some talk. There is some push among lawmakers and advocates that there should be subsidies that are given directly to folks who are not in the highest income brackets Who are more middle income or lower income. Who are going to get hit by this. Money's that could be dedicated to them to help. Soften the blow. That's wall street. Journal reporter ariane campo flora's ariane thank you so much for joining me today. Sure thing my pleasure and finally movie theaters were one of the first businesses to close their doors at the beginning of the pandemic and have been among the last to reopen but getting customers back hasn't been easy.
"flood" Discussed on Marketplace Tech with Molly Wood
"Are gathering for meetings this week at the un general assembly in new york among the topics they'll discuss is the ravages of continuing climate change this year. Climate damage across the us includes devastating flooding in tennessee new york louisiana and elsewhere. Some people know there at flood risk but many do not that's largely because the official federal flood maps are often outdated and may not account for the effects of more powerful storms. We wanted to know. How technology is advancing. The mapping effort michael grimm is assistant administrator for risk management at fema which manages flood mapping he says the agency continuously updates. Its tech like lighter. What's so amazing about light are is that in the past. We use traditional survey technologies in the twentieth century to collect flood data than people going out on the ground and actually serving and it's been replaced by lighter and so now what we do is we shoot lasers at the ground from an airplane and bounces back to the plane and we can convert that information to highly accurate elevation data for vast areas of the country at a much lower cost. What other technology is the agency thinking about incorporating when it comes to map creation twenty years ago or entire flood map inventory was paper maps and they basically looked like state highway maps. That you might have in your glove compartment of your car. But they weren't that conveniently located so somebody wanting to know if they were in a flood zone would often have to go to a local government office or library to find that paper fema map and unfolded and interpret whether or not. They're at risk so over the last twenty years we've been working tirelessly to transform that inventory digital product so homeowner can now go online type in their address. Get the hazard information online from our national flood. Hazard layer more similar to using a mapping software on your iphone or your computer to find the nearest gas station. Now i've covered flooding fairmount and so many people that have talked to have talked about how these maps are there woefully lacking we have the technology. It's getting cheaper. Why is it taking so long to update them. I think stepping back and looking at some of the comparisons that people make the flood maps to recent events. You'll see that. It's really comparing apples to oranges. So if you look at the recent flood events and temp tennessee for example that clearly demonstrate that storms much larger than sean fema maps occur and we believe are carrying with increasing frequency as a result of climate. Change there were seventeen inches of rain which fell at twenty four hour period as much larger than a one hundred year flood than what's shown on the fema map the actual updates of the fima maps are done on a five-year rolling basis. And keeping that mapping inventory up to date is critical to keep up with the science to keep up with technology to benefit the public and understand flood risk. Does that mean that in five years from now we will have maps that adequately assess the risk for people so five years from. Now we're going to. We're gonna keep maintaining the inventory that we have and like As i said we're looking at new ways to look at risk in terms of a range of flood possibilities the current maps the limitation of those that binary depiction of risk so the inner out version of the view of the flood plain where we all know it. Floods in other areas such as urban areas more frequently or much larger events that aren't depicted on the flood map and famous at the forefront of developing a new approach at a more comprehensive view flood risk Under what we call the future of flood risk data initiative. Michael what is the biggest bottleneck to getting these maps updated. Making the maps takes takes time. It's a very complex. It requires a lot of information. And because he's a regulatory maps They also take time to get through the public review period and the due process So in order to get through the process we have to be very deliberate. We work very closely with state and local governments. It's key to work with our state and local governments To get the best information we can the most comprehensive view of risk and then to get those communities To adopt that information and make land use decisions and building decisions based on the best risk data flood. Insurance is expensive. The you get pushed back when you update maps to show increased risk of flooding. We certainly get interest as the map changes. We certainly hear from stakeholders more so in. They're put in the flood plain then taken out of the flood plain in general. There's there's probably about the same amount of folks that come out of the flood plain when we do have remapping go in the flood plain really but but obviously we we will hear more from folks that get put in the flood plain That way The key as we've we've got to convince people that you know don't think it'll happen to them. You know because risk is often perceived based on what you've experienced or what somebody you love or no has experienced and you know just because you haven't had a flood at your home in the last ten years twenty years or thirty years doesn't mean you won't experience a flood And we need to. We need to do better job at risk communication across across all areas across not just flooding but lots of other hazards as well. Michael grimm assistant administrator for risk management at fema and now for some related links one very important function of the flood. Mass is that they determine whether you're eligible for the national flood insurance program. The nfl p is chronically underfunded and often criticized for allowing participants to rebuild in risky areas. Still it's a lifeline for homeowners. Who can't afford private flood. Insurance democrats are moving to kick in an injection of billions of dollars for the program. Some of it will be used to help subsidize insurance for low and middle income families. Three billion will go to helping improve flood maps that according to climate wire is twice as much as has gone to mapping in the past seven years combined. What is the private sector doing. When it comes to flooding in tech well one tech startup called cloud to st provides. Global flood mapping using satellites and ai in near real time. Some of the research was published in the journal nature in august. They looked at satellite images from two thousand two twenty fifteen and found that globally that proportion of people exposed to floods through by as much as twenty four percent over that time period. That's ten times higher than what was previously estimated wondering whether you need flood insurance there's this somewhat dire quote from marketwatch article quote if it rains where you live. You should consider flood insurance and quote the article points out that many people mistakenly think they're covered when it comes to flood damage but standard home. Insurance rarely covers it and finally just to give you a sense of what's at stake with. All of this red fin has an analysis that shows that over four years from two thousand sixteen to twenty twenty more people moved into risky areas then moved out the counties with the most homes at climate change risk from high heat drought fire flood and storms grew places with the least risk rank. I'm jed kim and that's marketplace tech. This is a pm..
"flood" Discussed on Planet Money
"The thing that is before hurricane. Harvey right bill has just filed another claim. He will certainly get another payout. He is insured and this time. It's for newer better stuff. So he's insured up to three hundred fifty thousand dollars to be conservative we typed in say he gets three hundred thousand. What is that. That's one point. One eight million dollars and some change on the end. Bill's house will have cost the federal government more than a million dollars. What is he paying premiums. He's paying four thousand eight hundred dollars a year. That seems like nothing or at least not nearly enough. Do you feel bad that you are costing a lot of money. I mean maybe some sort of psychopath or something. But it doesn't necessarily feel personal to me. Because it's i feel like i haven't. I didn't intentionally flood my house. I didn't decide that. I'm going to buy this house and i'm gonna make a killing on flood revenuers right so bill is not a psychopath. I mean considered it for a minute. But no i mean you i. We were in bills position. I'm pretty sure we would do the same thing right like think about it. The government requires bills mortgage lender to require that he has flood insurance so he gets flood. Insurance pays premiums just like he would to a normal insurance company except this is not a normal insurance company. What do you think you'd be paying if there was no government flood insurance program. I don't think i could get insurance of of quite at this point. There's probably not an insurance company in the world that would insure my property. It's just like if i was a drunk driver. That had gotten five d. You is in in two and a half years. That i wouldn't be able to get insurance. I probably to get a driver's license. I wouldn't be able to drive so your house is the drunk driver of homes the seventeen year old boy on a motorcycle who drinks of homes. Exactly all right now. He knows this is ridiculous. And when i was talking to bill he offered a solution. Cynic one thing. I found out while i was driving around houston. Is that most people in that city. Do not have flood insurance. It's only about fifteen percent. Who do and i'm asking them why. Why are you not insured. And they're telling me. Because no one ever said i had to buy flood insurance right because remember. The government rule says that if you're in a flood porn area and your federally backed mortgage your lender must make you buy flood insurance right. So i'm talking to people who are technically outside of the high risk area or in the case of some older folks you in the mortgage is paid off. Nobody can tell.

"Years ago when bill pennington bought his house. His mortgage lender made him by flood insurance. That that right there is the simple answer to why he is still here. He's insured bill is going to get a payout for his house and his stuff. Yeah insurance is a beautiful thing. It protects you against risk. It make sure you don't lose everything. And insurers in general are not afraid of risk they will ensure just about anything Poker games rockets body parts. They will do that as long as they can. Charge enough to make it worthwhile. All insurers care about is at the end of the year. They've taken in more money than they've paid out. Bill pennington's flood. Insurance policy is not underwritten by a company. It's underwritten by the federal government. And when he gets a pay out later this year the money is going to come from the federal government and to understand why that is. All you have to do is stand in bill. Pennington's driveway and look up and down the street. Hi how's it going good. How are you doing great so jeez. This is looks like the inside of your houses outside your house yet. Pretty much that is. I would say somewhere around ninety five percents of my home and possessions out on the curb in the trash. What are we what are we looking at. What do you see. Lets sheet rock. Let's doors and then. I turn around and i looked down the street. And it's the same thing sheet rock and doors and big bags of toys and clothes and garbage on the lawn of just about every single house on this street. Almost everyone stuff is out on everyone's slot and this right here. What you're looking at is something insurance. Companies do not like they call it. Correlated risk or geographically correlated risk. And what it means is right at this moment. Just about everybody. On bills block is going to have a massive flood insurance claim and that is a really scary idea to insurance companies. What insurance companies love is when risk is not correlated right. Think about car insurance. If bill got in a car accident his neighbors are not also all going to get in car accidents the same day and so insurance companies can deal with that. They're not afraid of risk they just don't want it all to happen at the same time or in the same place. So up until the nineteen sixties. Most insurance companies weren't offering flood insurance and then in nineteen sixty five. There was this huge storm hurricane. Betsy hit the gulf coast. it was a harvey style. Hurricane it was a cataclysm wiped out. Thousands of homes and most people did not have flood insurance. The government decided. We need to do something about this. They did they created this thing. That still exists today. It's called the national flood insurance program. And i ip. It does a couple of things one it tries to convince people not build in risky areas. But if they do it tries to encourage them to build smart to raise their houses up a little bit but as we saw in houston deterrence does not always work cds. Get bigger weather patterns change an area that wasn't high risk becomes high risk. So if you're in a risky area and you get hit by a flood. The government has your back just as long as you've got insurance. The government will pay your claim..

Today's story is a mad lib. Which leg i just kind of explained is a store with a bunch of blinks each has a corresponding part of speech or a particular feature. So i wrote this story as a pretty faithful summary of what we find three chapters in genesis however i crowd sourced the blanks from twitter and random generators. So what comes out is a little bit different than you remember reading in sunday school without further. Ado let's get to the show. The world was now well populated but the lord. God was not interested. The lord saw the people's wickedness was so great and every thought of their skin was pure evil. This did not make god proud data these humans so god said i will blot out all humans that i created from the face of the land animals to especially that goat. I'm relieved that. I made these certain people however no and his family were the good guys around god. Clued noah in on the plan. I have decided to end all living things for the earth filled with so much violence. So make yourself an ark of colossal squid would make rooms inside of it. It should be five cubits long and twenty seven cubits wide and forty one cubits tall get a roof on it. Some various dax lounge area whole works. I will bring a flood of water onto the earth. And we are going to reboot this project but with yuna family. I'm grateful with so you will be safe by the way you're also going to save. Some animals. take thirty two of every kind of animal of the special clean animals and the birds take twenty seven pairs. So noah got to building. He stood mostly with the plans. But a decorative capybaras on the side of the ship looking at the finish arc. He was loyally surprised his work soon enough. The time was upon them. God called and said noah it's showtime. No one is family got into the juicy boats with all their animal pals soon though waterworks started the cliffs of the deep burst open rain poured from the sky. Then that rain fell forty nine days and forty nine nights. But noah his unnamed wife and kids sham having j v plus their spouses and then all the animals were safe in the archa archa. The ark was floating above even the tallest wrench. Everything that lived on. Dryland perished noah his family and the animal crew. Pretty much. all that was left. The cruise wasn't going to last forever. God did not forget about them. Luckily the lord pulled the drain. Cinta ludicrous wind to clear the water after sixty four months vessel landed on a mountain but the waters were still abating. So noah took one of the newts and sent it out in search of land. But i came back because it couldn't find a place to rest after seven days. No center out again this time. She came back with a chapel knees. Maple leaf no awaited another seven days and center out again. She never returned. It was now time to open the doors. With great strain know uncovered the arkan- put him in charge of traffic control. As all the animals started the stampede into the fresh ill informed earth now that the whole messy flood business was done. God said about declaring a covenant with noah god blessed noah told him to start multiplying on the earth then made a promise never destroy the earth by fairies again to seal the deal the lord sign in the sky and egg so all future generations would know the waters would never again destroy the world. Okay okay. i know this story might sound a little confusing. Let's focus on the actual story without other mad libs features god's center flood to clean up sinful planet today. The genesis flood doesn't really help god's pr. It seems kind of unnecessarily cruel. But let's focus on what the story wants us to focus on. God doesn't like sin but god does like righteous people. God goes through great lengths to protect the righteous people. Even though they don't always end up being perfect they never end up being perfect. I mean right after the flood. Noah messes up nevertheless god is faithful to those within god's covenant arrangement so all in all.

"flood" Discussed on Scuba Shack Radio
"It's time for another installment of on it. Store live here on scuba shack radio. And this time we're going back to season one episode two titled flooded mine flooded mine the premiered on january eleventh nineteen fifty eight. The show opens up with mike scuba diving. And there's a woman who is free diving with them. They're searching for a guitarfish from marineland of the pacific and that's when they encounter a c line who might calls a natural clown. He then says that he will be faced with a very different situation. Fifteen hundred miles inland where he's been called to investigate a mine. Explosion that has flooded the tunnels in the next scene. Mike is at the mine and he's talking to the head of the mind. Mr graham mr graham explains that the explosion killed thirty miners and he needs mike to determine the extent of the flooding. Mike tells mr graham that he can go thousand yards into the tunnel with his cylinder. Graham asks him what it's going to cost. Mike says we'll talk about that later. Now mr graham calls in bill henderson. Who's going to help mike. Bill tells graham that he sorry about his boy who was killed in an explosion. The scene shifts to mike being lowered into the mine in his full scuba gear with miner's helmet on he says he's been all seven seas on six continents but has never been in a mind before and never wants to be in want again as bill and mike or making their way through the mine. Bill tells mike not to touch anything. It's a tight squeeze and mike accidentally kicks a beam. That causes a bit of a cave-in. Well they finally make it to the water mike. Mike looks at his watch. And it says three twenty and he tells bill that he has forty minutes of air. Bill asks mike. What can you do if he doesn't make it back in time to which mike replies. Nothing bill tells mike. He's got a dangerous job now. Under the murky water. Mike is feeling his way along slowly carefully when he hears some noises. He doesn't know exactly what what they are but he sees a light at the surface and when he surfaces up he discovers to miners trapped in an air pocket barely breathing. Mike shoves the regulator in their mouth and smacks them starts yelling at them to breathe now the dilemma. How to get them out. There's no time to go back for another long. He can only take one out but who they draw. Rocks smallest rock stays the guy. Mike is taking out. Can't swim and he needs wait. So they load his pants with rocks mic shows. Them how to buddy breathe gives him as masks and off they go but not for long. The minor panics. Takes mike's knife and starts to fight with them. Mike drops might drops his light and gets to panic. Diver back to the air pocket. Mike goes back down to get his late and then he comes up and tells the minor to get some rocks. He's taken him out. This time keeps his mask and things go smoothly. We then see bill looking at his watch. It's four pm. Whereas mike suddenly bill sees the light. And mike comes up with the minor. It's been workman. Mike needs to go back but he doesn't have enough air and there's not enough time to go out in the mind for another tank. What can they do. Just an mike spots a welding torch where there's a torch there's oxygen tank has the same valve as regulator. What luck but mike need some tools to complete the rig now. He needs to go back down underwater To retrieve a toolbox he does and hooks up his regulator and carries the o. Two tank with them as he heads back breathing welding oxygen. Mike reaches the air pocket and finds the second minor limp. But not dead. He gives him the regulator and the minor starts to revive. He tells. Mikey sorry that he was scared. Mike says that's okay. You just didn't have enough oxygen this time. Mike says that things went a lot better than they made it out. We never did get the name of that panic minor nor did we ever find out what might charge mr graham for those of us of a certain age or watch a lot of old time television. You might recognize bill henderson. That's hank patterson who played fragile. Arnold the pigs. Dad on greenacres the episode sort of ended abruptly when when it switches to lloyd bridges on his boat telling us that three fifths of the planet is covered by sea. And how little we know so join us as we go below with si-hun as we've seen in many si-hun adventures. You never know where mike nelson will be going diving next. Stay tuned for future installments of seon. It's still alive here on scuba shack radio

"The god of ship let cannabis serve it. May god large j feth let him dwell on the tents of shem unlike canaan be his servant and then we move into the descent of the nations. And we're getting a picture that the world is being populated here right it's like they're being dispersed there New cultures new tribes are being formed New people groups are being established across the expanse of the earth. Is there anything else in genesis. Ten that we should note here in terms of the genealogy. I'm looking something up. I i read something. Gosh it's been now that i'm just trying to find. I think i just found it. One of the things christian tradition is recognized. Is this tape. It's called the table a table tennis nations. And they're seventy of them listed. If i remember correctly in this table figure of seventy for the world's nations alluded to by jesus in the sending. Fourth of seventy disciples as recounted in luke chapter ten one to sixteen in the christian. Tradition is recognized. The church is taking up the charge of this Bringing this promise. Or blessing of god's new creation. And jesus the sending of the seventy disciples to the nation's which i think is something that's really important and then luke's ascension narratives in acts one eight contributes this to the universe at sorry says the universality of the lord's commission for the church this motif of the inclusion as reflected in the telling of the spirits coming at pentacost so the point of this table of nations is is that is that god's people are being dispersed. We're going to see this again. In genesis chapter eleven. But ultimately god's promise in god's blessing point to reach all of those nations the good news of jesus absolutely thank how close we are to genesis. Chapter twelve at this point where moses is going to write The the covenant with abraham that through him all the nations of the earth will be blessed. And that's that's what's being set up here in the table of nations absolutely and listen. If you've been following along you know that we did an after the fact episode with dr tracy mckinsey and he actually goes through here in the genealogy and genesis ten if you missed that i wouldn't encourage you go back and listen to that He made some comments about the use of the name. Kim here through genesis. Ten and i can't properly convey what he said It was further downfield. Than i am familiar with when it comes to the hebrew play but it was fascinating to hear kind of how this story plays out. And maybe see some things in geology. That we might often miss. But this genealogy leads us up to genesis chapter eleven and the tower of babel actually discussed this and an upcoming episode. I love the story of the tower of babel. And i love its relationship to the call of abraham and so. We're going to get into this in the days ahead but this is probably a good place to land the plane since we're fifty three minutes and to an episode episode. They got it.

"I'm not going to judge the whole earth through a flood again. It is made to noah in his generations. But at this point everybody that comes. After noah is going to be the generations of noah. he's the only family laughed but covenant feels different than the other covenants. We might find the testament. Is it really. Is this covenant. Just about god's not going to judge the earth by floodwaters again kyle. Are you saying it feels more narrow. Yes absolutely doesn't it. Yeah i would agree with that. It does feel no more narrow to me that because we do in. Maybe you guys. It'd be interesting to have a conversation about this. I mean god is going to judge the world again. The bible tells us going to judge it through fire. So it's not. The god is saying i'm not bringing my judgment upon my people again but rather i'm gonna bring it differently so i would read. This fairly narrowly that he is simply promising and everlasting covenant to not to judge humanity through a flood. But it doesn't mean he's not going to judge god's people again through other means right absolutely ran. Yeah i would go i would. I would go for that okay. It just feels it feels. I guess broad and that its cosmic but narrow into what is actually being promised. Yeah like it's not the salvation of all people it's not the blessing of abraham its blessing to the nations. It is it is with the world. I'm not gonna curse the world again because the sinfulness of humanity and i'm not going to judge the world through a cataclysmic flood it significant that we see a salvation through water here right and going to not solve the problem. I mean you're gonna find out why because not only is this a new adam and eve but we're going to see the new atom fall into sin in a garden tempted by fruit. So like it's it's all gonna you know we're going to get this replaying of that whole thing and so They're they're delivered through water and immediately. There's a you know is going to offer a blood sacrifice and there's talk of blood and the significance of blood. Now you're gonna eat things That are Aunt urinate animals. Not just plants so in other words. Your survival is going to be tied closely toward the shedding of blood. Every time you make dinner you're going to have to kill something And then there's the idea of atonement is being heightened There's been a passage through water but there is yet to be deliverance by blood. And that will require the the true and better noah. Yeah and this. is you know. I remember whenever. I was reading through this with a hebrew professor. Mike medicine indebted to him for this but he talks about how he's like. You know he was like what is the symbol of god's covenant here and i was like oh it's a rainbow and he was like yeah it's a rainbow but it's a bo mike. The hebrew word. That's used here is bow.

Anything to that. I know. I think that's all really helpful. I actually had thought of it. In terms of jesus person hood kind of the way. You're doing his kingship. I think that's really helpful. I'd always read. It always the way. I was going to talk about it. Was you know it says. In chapter eight verse. Eleven that so one other thing that's important to note here. We didn't talk about this earlier. But there's three million account so we have talked about in previous episodes and one of the ways that the local account differ significantly is the babylonian hero sends out a dove and then a raven and no one does the opposite. Believing that a raven can fly longer is more prone to to Being surviving a storm and then he sends out the the raven wants the waters begin to subside. however that started dove wants. The water subsided. He sends the dove out and it comes back and it says couldn't find anything then. Verse eleven the dove came back in the evening and behold there was a freshly plucked olive leaf so no one knew the waters are subsiding then waited another seven days senate the dove and she did not return to him anymore and we don't ever hear of this dove presumably landing but if you're just reading only the genesis account you're thinking to yourself oh the earth has been recreated the eventually found a place where she could land in live in god's new created world and so when we hear the next time of a dove descending upon upon something it is descending upon jesus it certainly i think is anointing. It's talking about his kingship for sure. But he also i think becomes the anticipated promise and fulfillment of the new creation in the land. That god google's going to inherit this is the land that does that no is looking for. But it's actually represented not just in the kingship of jesus but the inheritance that we receive. Jesus yeah i think that's really good. That's good i. I love how we cover that passage. Because i think that honestly that was really fun to do with with both of you because it feels like gin is helping us see like i did not see at all the creation repopulation thing. I'm assuming right. Pass to get. Jesus and the baptism ceremony. Mike does find the right okay And and you know. And i think that that's such a good picture of. Hey this is how the story unfolding in genesis and then you kind of but then you look at wall what is happening in the new testament anyways. I just learned a lot there that was really valuable. I'm glad we talked about that All right so okay. So we get the the end of their coming off the ark and god tells them be fruitful and multiply essentially like. We're repopulating the earth. Both at a creature level beast of the field level and human level And then it says in verse twenty. Then noah built an altar to the lord took some of every clean animal and some every clean bird and offered burnt offerings on the altar. When the lord smelled the pleasing aroma the lord said in his heart. I will never again curse the ground. Because of man for the intention of man's heart is evil from his youth neither will ever again..

"I like your language of making the main things to plan things in the plane. Things the main things. I mean jesus has a lot of commentary in the gospels on this account in the main thing that he talks about. And it's this is not a popular topic to talk about god's judgment of sin. I mean this is just if we're talking theological categories. This is clearly god's judgement against centers. Paul says in romans. Six at the wages of sin is death and this is one of those clearest examples where because of the sinfulness and corruption of humanity. And here's what can be a little challenging for us. Yes it was a big boat and yes. It was a water water for a long time. It was a sudden and unexpected judgment against centers that they weren't you know. Just biding their time. Jesus says this. In matthew chapter twenty four he says as it was in the days of noah so it will be again at the coming of the son of man for in the days before the flood people were eating and drinking and marrying and giving in marriage up to the day that noah entered the ark. So he's he's giving this this picture. That people were fine with how they were living yes. They were living in corruption and wickedness and deceit and it was going to lead to death but but they although they knew they were being deceptive they may be had had a sense that god's judgment was so far out in advance and we have time to repent me. You know we can eventually get our lives cleaned up so that we can be in a relationship with god. But jesus says they were giving in marriage to the day that noah enter the arc and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be the coming of the son of man. So jesus uses this text to talk about the seriousness of rebellion and sinfulness against god that will lead to death. That will come upon us suddenly. He's saying that there is a coming judgment that that will come again in the future. I think we could talk about this being To use a theological term prolifically like pro brought back to the cross that is coming at the cross but it does also coming in the future revelation. Chapter one and twenty two. Or all of god's enemies will be finally fully destroyed once and for all. This flood comes in unexpectedly upon those who were caught in judgment of. I just remember i. I don't know if this was a sermon. I heard or maybe it was somewhere else. Where like just think about the reality of of people trying to climb into the arc like fingernail scratches like they're being judged because of their rebellion in it is a good and just judgment against their sin but real people died real humans real animals. God's creation was d- created notched in a big picture theological sense but in a real judgmental sense..

"Be more coherent with the natural order of the world and with the flow of history. That's my take on it. So is that what. You're listening again in the epic of gilgamesh. Is that the dinosaurs have. We gotten to that part yet. No but i am ready to talk. About diana's yeah yeah. I think it's time. I mean i totally agree with you on the on that reading of why those those stories exist You know it's just. It means that something big happened. I do think it's important for us to discuss. You said it bears evidence that a worldwide flood occurred But there's a lot of discussion among scholars biblical scholars about whether the flood had to be a worldwide flood or whether it could have been a regional flood like known world. Kind of event Do you a strong feeling one way or the other you know. That's that's a good question. My take on it is that it is a cosmic worldwide flight. I think if we are to understand That is a remaking of the world. And i think that again. I think that what we're finding in the flood story is that this flood is like it's all encompassing and i think that if this is a recreation narrative or a d. creation narrative. I think it's to be all or nothing. And i think that the that the even we're seeing some resonances from a biblical theology perspective between the chaotic waters of genesis one in two or genesis one verses one through two and the flood story to me. It seems like well. I don't have a reason to think that it's not a cosmic flood or worldwide catastrophe. And i think if it's going to be a judgment of the world because send did not just break humanity. The judgment here is not just humanity and that's detailed at the beginning of the account right. It's the birds the beast. It's the whole created order. And i think if that's the case this is a all of creation thing that's a. That's a really good argument. Not i haven't heard it said that clearly Would you say that someone who doesn't believe that it is a worldwide flood is outside the pale of orthodoxy. Like if they say well it definitely had to have wiped out humankind or so. You would not okay. That's good to hear. I think that's good. No i i think in the same way that what we're about to talk about dinosaurs is just for the record. What we're talking about. Dinosaurs is almost one hundred percent canonical and biblical imagination and speculation. 'cause anybody who tells you they got a biblical case to make for dinosaurs is out of their mind. It just does. It doesn't exist and that's not to say you can't have a good position on it. It's just to say the bible is not addressing dinosaurs. You better say more things you just made it sound like. They don't exist like the dinosaurs fake. You were like anyone. Making biblical justification for dinosaurs is out of their mind. That's what you said. They were put there by sabin. Odes in dinas. Here's here's my take on dinosaurs. Dinosaurs existed and died before the beginning of redemptive history. So i take an older view creation. So i'm not. I'm not spreading any live here. I've been consistent on this issue. Can view creation and i believe in plant and animal death before the fall and i take it that dinosaurs existed prior to prior to creation further back than humanity further back than adam and eve and that they are essentially a pre historical Creature that did not exist on the same kind of timespan adam and eve in the garden or is no with the flood. I do not take an animal death to be moral in nature. And i see that the dinosaurs could have been created and existed and they certainly are far older than anything that we would have in terms of humanity. So that's my take on dinosaurs. Dinosaurs were in the flood. I don't think they were killed in the flood. I don't think they were on the ark. I don't think that adam and eve would have walked around dinosaurs. I don't think there were velociraptor garden or outside the garden. I think that they had come and gone. And we're dead long before The garden was planted. And because of that we are now able to reap their fuel and drive around in our cars so every time you turn on the everytime like real like rudolph boltman set it out turning on. Rudolf said about maternity. He said you know some some crazy outlandish thing about every time you turn on a light bulb you know you essentially deny the virgin birth or something. He was bonkers for that. But i would say that every time you fill up your car with gasoline. You essentially acknowledged that dinosaurs died millions and millions and millions if not billions of years. That's my take on dinosaurs. Hot one for sure. I agree or you disagree vote. -ment is really concerned about your social life. You need to get out more. Wow i didn't know we were going to talk about that much about dinosaurs I think your position is compelling jt. Anything edged mallet microsoft. Yeah i don't know. I really don't. This is one of those things. It's like i i just. I don't want to take the easy well. The text is an answering the question that as an easy out. That's an important her musical principally. I just mean like you know how there are some things that you're just like i don't care yeah and i don't care like spend a lot of time thinking about it. I don't care to spend a lot time like maybe it makes me a bad the illusion or something i just don't i don't know i don't care and i've got a lot of other really important things that i need to think about that. Like got kyle says compelling that could be it they can also be sa- you know i just don't know i think the important thing that we should all take away is that neither kyle not. I thinks that dinosaurs are fake. That this that the record is fake to make us think they may have been put there by. Ufo's in order to help us got anymore. Yeah that's not how they i. My big kicker is that. I i think that when we when we're talking about dinosaurs were we're talking about death. I think that there is often a mischaracterization that genesis three brings death into the world. I would say that. I don't know that that to be true. I think the jimmy here that separation from god and physical and spiritual death from guy so a lot of time people just how the diner dinosaurs have existed prior to genesis three. They couldn't died and if they are. They're either far younger than we think they are. Which is typically. What people suggest that they were killed in a cataclysmic flood and because of the unique flood and topography conditions. Their fossils aged at a very unusual rate. It just feels to me like listen. The same dating that we use for dinosaur bones is the same dating. We use for manuscripts. It's carbon fourteen day dating so either. Our manuscript dating system is off or the fossil record is off but to me it just seems like dinosaur seemed to be markedly old older than the history of the world and that poses no problems for christianity or the story of the bible at all. If you feel like man. I'm super concerned about dinosaurs. And how the bible doesn't address. I would go addressing. Don't be concerned about dinosaurs. They lived they died. And god's word is not imperfect and.

"Than humans regardless of whether it's positive emotion a negative emotion or chain of on and you're holding onto the simplicity of god which i do not believe i understand though necessary architecture for our doctrine of god. Here's my question to you can. This is the one question. I wanna ask. Kyle if what you're saying is true. Why the incarnation of god can redemptive act in his own emotional life whether that being love or wrath or grief or redemption. Why would the son of god needs to become incarnate in order to act upon those things and we've talked about this before i would say that that is the if we're looking for an area where you and i can meet in the middle on. It's that i would say that. There is a better argument to be made about the from the incarnation as the means by which god acts in this way in the world and communicates the the. But that's not what i'm asking. Why the incarnation. Well i don't know that i. I don't know that i would say that. If we have a god who is passable meaning. He experiences emotions with all the caveats. I've given to. I don't know that. I i've seen that that is the that would be the logical That would undo the need of the incarnation or the redemptive work of christ. I think we're having a question about whether or not god in his interior life experiences emotions. Not whether or not. The son of god in karnik flesh was needed for this nation of mankind. You could say that god would have to assume human flesh to pay three and part of the emotional. Life of god is tied to the incarnation as he bears. The wrath of sin extends love towards sinners in a way that only as possible. You would argue. I would think through the incarnation. So it's only by adopting a deep view of impossibility. Simplicity that the incarnation even make sense because that could possibly be true. Guys back i. we're we thank. You can jump either. We made it to verse eight of chapter six. I told you we're going to be three or four fun when it's probably true had never rained before. What are you trying to trying to talk about the no. I'm not doing it down right now in the name of dinosaurs now. I do think though since we'd now clearly do not have time to talk about the flood in any meaningful manner. I think we could cover at least Flood narratives in the ancient near east. And i think that we could discuss dinosaurs. But i do not think that we should talk about the rest of chapter six because i feel lord with judge will will move the flood on. So let's talk about ancient stories and let's talk about dinosaurs okay. So we're not gonna call this episode. We're gonna call this episode the genesis six circuits. That's what we're gonna call. Let's with ancient near eastern stories. Jin is this the only ancient near eastern story that includes mention of the fly. No kyle no. it's not. I'm number last last time we did this. And kyle talked about the bible as coverage is sports so regarding the coverage so far is okay. Wait because i am going to hit you so hard. I'm going to take your breath away. Breath away kyle. Okay awkward so yes one of the things that it's really important for people to hear is often something that people learn too late in their in their Learning curve with with the story of the flood is that there are actually literally hundreds of these stories out there in an. I don't say literally assault literally like there are literally hundreds of flood traditions across cultures. That are actually very similar. many of them are are have a lot of the same elements of the flood account that we have here of noah so they talk about a family that receives favour. They talk about survival due to a boat. They talk about The disaster being brought upon due to man's wickedness about animals being saved about survivors that end up on a mountain Some of them even include birds being sent out And things like that so so then people find this out like usually when they go to college or you know they're in a bible class or something and they're like what so then. Is our flood story. Just rip off and like the most the the best known. One is the epic of gilgamesh. That's the one you hear about the most So then what are we supposed to think that. As is moses just did. He hit a lazy writing season and decide that he was just gonna take someone else's story and use it for his own purposes. Like how do we answer this because this this can be with people of faith. That's my that's my position. Yeah i'm sure but like so help. No christian well so listen one of the. We've talked about this already. Ally is that god reveals himself in a way that is kind to his people on that makes sense with the scope of the world. I think that what we see with the abundance of flood narratives in ancient near eastern is resounding proof that a worldwide flood occurred. And i think that that that the abundance of those stories does not discredit the story of scripture. I think it gives a lot of credence to the story of scripture. People often will treat the flood and the flood. Narrative is some sort of absolutely bananas kind of idea. Would you feel that same way if you knew. Just about every ancient near eastern story contained one. You know if if you and i were having a conversation about what happened yesterday and you mounted a hundred people who told me. A football game happened yesterday at seven o'clock and maybe all of them saw the football game from a different angle. But if we were talking about what happened. Did a football game happen or not and one hundred people say football game happened but maybe this little bit is different. In my view of it. I would go wow great. We have a lot of good credence for suggesting that a football game happened yesterday. I think the abundance of the ancient near eastern stories don't diminish the credibility of scriptures account of the of the flood. I think they'd actually in anyways. It strengthens the credibility of scriptures witness. Then it becomes a question of which flood account seems to be most coherent with the state of the world. And if you get into these ancient near eastern stories many of them read like a stained glass window with a bunch of pains punched out of it. Okay they don't they. They are not nearly as cohesive as the story that you find. The epic of gilgamesh is the closest one. But even the epic of gilgamesh involves a dragon beast to note Which i think is also an important note in terms of overlap credibility. But i think that when you get into those stories you realize. I'll tell you you read the epic of gilgamesh and then you read the flood story and tell me which one of them seems to be more coherent. I'll put one hundred dollars on the fact that you're gonna way down and say yeah. This genesis stick sewri seems to.

"Today at cross. Wait dot org slash family discipleship. Yep absolutely absolutely okay. Let's keep going changing our changing minds. Genesis a. I'm sorry we're gonna turn this four episodes genesis six six. The lord regrets the lord regretted that he made the men on the earth and he agreed them to his heart. Okay so let's talk about ways at this is handled There is sometimes which is a we might say is the the prevalent reformed view. Is that this language. Construing regret and grief is accommodation or listening language that guides that the way that god reveals himself. Here this is from calvin that god cannot tell us the inner workings of the mind of god and way. God is kind. This is a better way to say. God is kind to talk to us about the inner workings of the mind and purposes of god in a way that we can understand. Guide doesn't regret anything. Nor does god grieve anything. Because god doesn't experience emotional life. This would be you know that god is impassable God does not have an emotional ivy doesn't experience emotions because of emotions would imply inexperience of unknown or change which would call into question his immutability that he cannot change your experience change That is a very dominant way. And i am. That's the foundation. I stand on fine holding that position. I will say. I struggle because particularly in the old testament. Passages like this. You have to do you talk about you. Wanna talk about reading the bible. You gotta be a a theological gymnasts to say and the lord regretted that. He made up on the earth and aggrieved them to his heart. Now hold on god. Didn't regret it and it didn't but but really I fifteen. I am not even going gonna go to systematic theology calvin of the reform tradition. I samuel fifteen Verse ten. I think it is hang on. I'm on the chapter yet. I samuel ten fifteen. The word of the lord came to samuel. I regret same word that i have made saul king for. He has turned back from following me and is not performed my commitments. So the bible says that the lord can regret right. Is that what you're saying you're saying it says in genesis six six. I'm saying that that is what the verse says. I don't know what trap. I if you're asking what the bible a i don't feel right now. I'll okay okay. Same chapter i samuel fifteen twenty nine and also the glory of israel will not lie or have engorged israel being a reference for god in also the glory of israel will not lie or have regret for he is not a man that he should have respect so so can god regret provinces answer for according to his folly and then he says don't answer according to falling so i don't i mean we can probably point to one hundred places in scripture where we do get a tension that emerges between god's saying i regret something and then two three versus later saying god is not capable of regret. I think that is happening in the same chapter. I understand that and there. We've got one hundred places randomly referring to different things. Oh hold on. you're making. There's not one hundred places in the old testament where the bible describes the emotional life of god because you because for obviously does of course it does and it does so in a comma dating way. Why because god condescends times. I'm saying we have one chef talk about coaching. That could very well be the case. It could very well be the case that every mention we have of the emotional life of god in the bible and the old testament in particular is a reference as an accommodation as reference and a category that we would understand but that isn't accurate about god because he couldn't speak to us in that manner. I would say this that seems to me. In every argument. I ever heard for the impossibility of god to not be an argument. We need time out about you can keep going. But i need to say something at some point. Well the that argument is almost always squarely an argument. That is is interested. In protecting the immutability of god and and i would say even more specifically these simplicity of god and the transcendence the creator creature distinction. You remember that thing that we so now we're four episodes ago that we said is the most important distinction systematic theology that god is the creator and then we are the creatures and that we need to make those two things separate and distinct. I think you're the one who said that. Are you in late. A creature leaps into god. Is that what you're saying okay. Jt this is the this is the problem with arguing with a system. Titian like this is that they like. They are absolutely convinced that to pull at any part of the fabric is to call into question the whole tapestry and the reality is that's not the case if god greaves. If he regrets he experiences those emotions in perfect consistency with his nature and his character which is qualitatively different than how we experience those things as creatures there is no problem at all with saying god experiences and emotional life but when he experiences them he experiences them with absolute divine perfection when he's grieved is only grieved for that which is absolutely grievous and when he experiences grief experiences in the completely perfect way that's consistent with his character and his nature that you don't lose. I don't believe that you lose. What theologians are what feelings are going to say. You must christian theologians um my guy say what you need to say. I'm gonna. i'm not moving past this yet. I've got one more thing to say. Oh no really really okay. In the interest in the interests of baby dinosaurs everywhere. Can we please look back the text itself. Everyone guys you got your bible. Just looking at the text. Hang on. Do you have your bibles open minds open. I know serious listeners. Elite probably has aristotle's listeners. Please turn to genesis chapter six. Nope yup chapter six starting in verse. Five okay you ready. Okay now. I want you to think back. Because we're in genesis right so remembering in genesis chapter one where we had the creation account right. Guess what the flood's gonna be. It's going to be a d. creation account okay. So wh- what is god's say at the end of the creation account it says that god looked on everything that he made and behold it was what it was very. Good right okay. So what's the first thing that we see in the creation account that he looks on everything is made and it is not good he sorry about it right and so then look what happens next in verse seven so the lord said i will blow it out man whom i have created because what day was man created.
