In the United States coast guard has been deployed as well. 6 fixed wing aircraft 18 rescue boats and crews, 16 rescue helicopters, which were in the air all day yesterday and are added again today. Working with the Defense Department, the National Guard, state and local first responders, they've rescued a 117 people on Southwest Florida coast in Fort Myers in Naples so far. Just this morning, I spoke personally with the lieutenant commander of the coast guard, Christopher hooper, who was leading the search and rescue operation there. He emphasized, this is one fight. Everyone working together, coast guard, Defense Department, customs and border patrol, Florida fish and wildlife, local officials. They're doing everything they can to rescue people. He said, mister president, we will not rest at night until we know they're safe and sound. He talked about how they rescued a 94 year old woman. Who had the courage to be hoisted up onto a helicopter. The wind blowing, and as well as a one month old baby. Not the same time, but a one month old baby as well. And so much in between. He also spoke to aviation survival to Iowa houses, both JVs and survival second class technician. Second class, Zach lesh. Who described how difficult the decision is for people to leave everything and come to safety. I told him how proud of him I was. And thanked him for all the work he and his coasties are doing to save lives. I'm grateful for the brave women and men federal state and local folks working so hard. They're all working as one team. Here that from the governor as well as from the federal folks, in the past 24 hours, my administration has approved four more counties in Florida for individual disaster assistance. In addition to the 9 counties, we had announced yesterday. And what that means is the federal government will cover as covering every cost. 100% of the cost to clear the massive debris left in the wake of the hurricane and these counties. And all needs to be cleared out for communities to begin the hard work of trying to get back on their feet. That declaration also means that we will cover all the extra cost for emergency personnel who are saving lives and providing for public safety. Because phone lines and Internet might go out, fema is registering people directly directly to be able to get help. They're setting up disaster recovery centers and shelters all across the state. So we can get survivors registered for the help they need as quickly as they can possibly get it. And if you can't get to a center, we're sending out mobile teams in the communities to meet people where they are. Getting the power back on is also critical. I want to recognize and this is, I think, impressive. 44,000 utility workers and restoration personnel from 33 states in the District of Columbia were working around the clock to help get power back on

"Half-century could be drastically affected by the impact of global climate change but concerns have only grown as climate has become according to the pentagon in two thousand fifteen a present security threat. Not strictly a long-term risk. It's a big topic so we decided to bite off a smaller piece of it and focus so we on the risks from climate migration overseas. But also i right here at home. i'm just he keenan. I'm an associate professor real estate at the tulane school of architecture jesse focuses on climate adaptation. And the places where we live and work here in the us. He's the guy who call if you're not sure if you should build that third mansion on the florida coast. But he's also convinced that we are on the cusp of great northern migration. The could make millions of us more vulnerable. He says people will flee flooding and wildfires on the coasts and deadly heat waves in i think. Some portion of our country will participate in a great northern expanse. The range of plants and animals in the northern hemisphere is moving slower and slower north. We measure this across dozens of species. They're slowly moving north. Well guess what people are going to do the same thing right over time. We are going to slowly move further and further north until we become an extreme annoyance to our canadian. Neighbors in a major report propublica found that in the coming years buffalo. New york might come to feel more like tempe. Arizona does today and freshwater will become even more scarce as a result of climate change. Places like miami. New york and boston will be profoundly altered. The report said imagined dozens of new bridges connecting the islands of philadelphia. And i think that the scale you know when you think about other great america migrations like the dust bowl you know. It's four to five times. The size of the dust bowl potentially it could easily be thirty million people or more you know. Approximately eight percent ten percent of the population may be in transit and these are relatively conservative estimates to be fair. Keenan is talking about a shift over a longer period of time in two thousand nineteen the intelligence communities worldwide threat assessment called climate change and urgent and growing threat to our national security. There's even a think tank here in dc dedicated solely to examining the security risks posed by climate. Change francesco feminine. I am the co founder and a research director at the center for climate security. He's trying to figure out how prepared the military might be for what's to come. Especially where climate gracious concerned and especially in the world hotspots all the sidebar. Here he agrees with jesse keenan that this is also a big concern. Right here domestically. I spoke with a former vice admiral. The coast guard. And i asked him. You know if we were to get a katrina. Andy style storm massive chunks of boardwalk littering the streets street after avenue after call one after the other with much of new orleans now underwater authorities or focused on search and rescue and then meanwhile we have wildfires raging in the west smoke mushroomed thick blankets of cloud so vast they could be seen from space and this was three years ago asked. Are we prepared to deal with that. In a way that's acceptable to the american public. He said flatly no. We're not prepared. And it was a little bit. Surprised has consequences for political stability in this country and potentially for security and now even in the us it's not unreasonable to think that the impacts of climate change could lead to food and water shortages devastate homes and land and in some cases caused mass migration and all of these things can aggravate existing stressors. Climate change is what we in our community call a threat multiplier to say that climate change makes other security.

"Species act you. Us redfern for can't became in on the west coast offer similar plea last week to a federal wildlife officials stating that. They need to reinstate manatees on this too short future protection beyond that This year legislators. In state legislator offered eight million dollars For manatee habitat restoration the floor fish and wildlife conservation commission has stated exactly how they plan to use that money but that is a larger increase of funding that will go towards manatee conservation the future and many point to habitat restoration in finding natural warm water. Sites to relocate manatees in the winter months more safer area with more food supplied to go round. Those are two main things in the short term that are happening to address ongoing die off and then the long term you know. Many people say that there needs to be increased enforcement on water quality standards particularly in the lagoon other parts of florida. These impaired waterways to ensure that habitat has a chance to re crow after decades of stormwater runoff in pollution raw Beyond that several groups of conservation organizations here on the treasure coast urged governor to santa's to declare a state of emergency to address the failing in river lagoon and beyond a symbolic stance from these groups. They wanted an acknowledgement that this was impaired waterway. Right you'd ask for a state of emergency for appeared city following a natural disaster a hurricane and they wanted a symbol recognition from the state for the lagoon over here. Federal state wildlife officials. Florida department of environmental protection came back and said that is not necessary that they're actively working with federal investigators in state partners to address the cause in that a state of emergency wouldn't be effective conservation groups to step further and now is the time to act that we've seen so much runoff and pollution over the past few years that any further could hinder Populations for years to come. This could be the start of a long ongoing trend of manatee die-offs and then obviously beyond that it is enforcing waterfall standards of enforcing the amount of fertilizer using to to clean your lawn or to fertilizer lawn and nutrients like nitrogen phosphorus. That are found in. Fertilizers can cause these blooms. Once they enter the water to to raise up to flare up and to joke seagrass. So you've been reporting on the issues facing manatees for awhile. What we're your journalism taking you right now. What are you what questions are you trying to answer that that you haven't been able to answer so far about about this issue. I think alert question. Right now is the overall effect it'll have on eco-tourism throughout the state. There was a boat captain. I spoke with a few weeks ago. Who was taken private charter. He had a group of fishermen on his boat with him and in the midst of that trip they found two dead manatees. They reported to the state. So this is actively playing a part in the overall eco-tourism aspect of florida. And i really want to know what the monetary toll of that will be will hinder future dollars coming to the state. Four for tourism for appreciation for these animals manatees role in thousands of people per year to the state To either die with the man ts to.

"The human impacts of strikes signs in waterways across florida warning of manatees in the area. No wake zones. That were That risen in the waterways and you see similar campaigns like that now with habitat degradation. You have conservationist pointing to water quality as a major source of the problem. And that you can see there are. There are similar techniques here raising that awareness. The voter campaign was it was particularly successful in pointed to the fact that boats were part of the problem this year. Obviously they are compounding the problem along with red tide. There are confluence of environmental factors. That are taking place here in. While is part of the story the larger issue the focus tends to be on water quality this year and the reason for that being that we've seen barren areas of of the lagoon apart to florida as far south as biscayne bay. That lost seagrass over the years and that continues to be the main talking point here so it seems that you know the long-term issue is getting these nutrients out of the water that will hopefully allow seagrass to grow back and the manatees. Have their food source. But is there anything in the short term. That's happening with the state or with federal wildlife officials to protect the manatees. That that are still living in in making sure that they stay healthy for for the short term in two thousand seventeen. There was a key decision. The us department of interior downlisted west indian manatees from endangered to threatened species and this was a bittersweet decision It approved that decades of conservation effort efforts for paying off on that there was evidence to show the conservation efforts. Working and manatees could be downloaded on the federal endangered species. Act as manage began dying off this year. Many conservation returned to that twenty seventeen decision and said that this could potentially be harmful for the species that it could cause a lack of funding streamlined of funding. From protecting these animals of so many people especially on the east coast have returned to that two thousand seventeen decision. Instead it's time to relist manatees as endangered under the federal endangered species.

"We're looking at chew. Crises facing marine ecosystems in our state later on. We'll hear about why so. Many manatees are dying in the indian river lagoon. But i red tide is back the toxic algae has spread along the coast from charlotte and lee counties to panelists for county. Workers spent last week scooping hundreds of dead fish that had washed up along the shore. Hundreds of gallons of wastewater from an abandoned phosphate mine spilled into tampa bay earlier. This year could be one factor in the outbreak. But my aberg of the tampa bay estuary program says it's not the only reason but we can't control the weather. We can only control sort of what we do as a community in terms of the nutrient inputs that we put there and so for us. That's always been where it's at you know. What are the things that we can control. We can control our nutrient pollution and we know that this year the bay took a big hit and so we need everybody to do their part to make up for what they can. My colleague jessica charles has covered the red tide problem for years here. In tampa and fort. Myers i spoke with her for this update. What is red tide. And why is it such a persistent problem in and around the the coast in our area while karenni bevis is the red tide organism that lives in the gulf always usually it's in what's called background concentrations and it's even documented in the water since like the spanish explorers so as far as we know it's always been there but becomes a problem when the concentrations of cranial crevice increases from background or low concentrations to medium or high and then that is considered bloom concentrations and those are toxic. They can paralyzed animals. Even make them act. Strange and exposure can be fatal marine life and for people that causes respiratory irritations and then of course our beach days get affected when smelly dead fish lined the shores. And you know of course down the line that affects our tourism. So what's happening right now. That's causing this. This red tide outbreak that we're seeing in bonilla's county and elsewhere in our region..
