"He ended with much downs. Including he had the game tying touchdown with about two minutes left. i think. Sixty seven yarder and then Lake sie scored the go ahead With about twelve left and they chuck went up to mcgarity again. Who was single covered for reasons. I can't possibly understand. And he scores again is think about sixty five yarder And they hit the extra point which like cms basically to win the game so pretty pretty insane sequence and and what a like say what a amazing return of kinda hopefully normal football it was it was quite a night for the lampkin. Smart man but You get a wide receiver. Commit to see us you playing. You wanna throw a safety shadow over there. You don't wanna play 'em single coverage and hey could i gotta give shadow to that quarterback for throwing it up. Let your guy go make a play any kind of old cliche and you know back in their offense coordinator after game he said hey throats number one you look very smart right now is that that's a good way to when you have a guy like that give them a chance in life especially see him one on one. I mean you know what a joke. I don't like i say when guys two touchdowns already hundred fifty yards. I feel like you may be needed a double cover him by more power to fort collins for taking advantage and finishing it off is kinda funny mcgarity when he crossed the in zone For that came in touch he basically just collapses you could tell he was cramping. He was just exhausted his afternoon kick. It was hot as and obviously he had done a lot running because he plays both ways as well so I think a well earned the and rest for him. Yeah i bet. I bet it was all worth it. When he hit that iced and then watch the film on saturday. I think it was. It was well worth everything that you put into it. So matt yemen and the lampkin get off to start and yeah like you said what a. What a thrilling. Way to start the season i it was really cool and i'm excited to see what this does for four collins moving forward we've talked that they do have some really good pieces. They certainly have some holes in the rosser. But you know mcgarity dante johnson. They have some really nice pieces on that roster. So i'm intrigued can do to capitol them In their season and we talked about what the spring plane and spring would mean. We don't really know but but certainly a good start absolutely. We're talking with kevin line a lot of the colorado and kevin. Let's let's bump up to where during mcgarity is Planning on playing a next season. And that's it the rams they had another colorado a high school standout running back. Tanner holland says entered into the transfer portal. Yeah kind of interesting timing. Obviously school has started week. One this stay or homes was not unday. They had four ryan backs listed on the depth turn. He wasn't one of them which You know obviously. I'm sure was partly precipitating the move. He's the guy that i thought. Look good in camp. Is colorado the gatorade player years a senior He actually played some linebacker last year and then moved back to rain. Back this year but Ibm cincy where he goes. Because i do think he's a talented guy Or some good ryan backs in front of him but mostly veteran groups..

"Tinto on the time. Welcome back into the cushion specialist studios. Thanks for being with us was able to go out Friday for the grand opening of rule. One oh five brewing and Man they've got that place looking fantastic in better beer as well Spent a part of the afternoon out there and part of the evening ahead of the greeley stampede. hanging out there Was able to talk. David pennington this is. What's really cool right so ruina five. Dr motor company David pennington with the shine shop stopped by And there's some really cool stuff going on in the works there But talked to david Men that talk about a perfect spot to go and stop by before you head. Down to the greeley stampede. It is the shine shop on west tenth street. Swinging there for some smoked barbecue and a couple of spirits Craft spirits before you go to the stampede and and enjoy your night They're rock and roll and it's awesome checkout shine shop a here in greeley So we're been talking about all these events that we get back. This is one that. I've never really understood in. This is bad beer and physical activity normally. Don't go great together That's why you drink beer on the golf course right. You don't have to do anything overly physical Drink beer for beer. League at softball. You're not running a whole lot most of the time. You're just sitting there. But pedaling a bike is a lot of cardio and when you drink beer your cardio doesn't get better. Trust me. i've tried to are too fat announced his twenty twenty one parade and party in fort collins as by rebecca pal out of the colorado and they didn't have it last year but new belgium brewing will bring back the annual bike parade bursting with color and creativity that ends with a party at the brewery. The parade made up of costumer bicycles and often other innovative pedal-powered contraptions will start at ten. Am mountain avenue and sherwood street. The spectacle will be on full display while it travels through old town before ending a new belgium or the party will last throughout the evening. I'm not judge new. You go do this. I just saying personally. I'm not going to dress up. All weird and jump on a bike and pedal i will just meet you guys at the burry. I will see you there. When you're done peddling and putting on this i will meet you there. I'm not a parade guy. I think i've gone to one fourth of july parade. Look that's the thing i'm not a. I'm not a parade guy i'm not. You're not that guy. Trust me when i was on the floats. I guess like we don't courtesy. The broncos we gotta be on the flow ride we had Was actually my old man's truck that we'd use to pull the that's different if you're in the parade it's different but i would never go to just a parade. I don't know i don't hate them. I maybe i do. I don't know. But i just don't get it like i don't wanna just stand there and watch people go by. It's like hey okay like there's nothing cool about that to me. I don't get any So they the new belgium. The tour de fats coming back. Attendees can expect a return of the classic entertainment and activation activation. They have come to know and love a news. Release friday promise The event usually includes entertainment music games and new belgium beer of course but no such details were given friday though. More information is expected to come in august. Well this is obviously obviously. I am in the minority here because to fan got its start in. Nineteen ninety nine in is a celebration of community bicycles and beer. According to new belgium the event benefits local bike nonprofits and trails and supports bicycle education and advocacy. I will say if somebody came up to you. That was from four four away and not from around here and they said described fort collins to me. Well i think you could just point them to tour day fed a lot of Interesting people on bicycles raising money for bikes trails and drinking craft beer. I think that's a pretty good way of pointing to it and saying yeah. That's that's what that's fort collins in a nutshell Keeping it around. We're going to jump to some new for northern colorado fort collins. Plastic bag ban will likely affect ten grocery stores in may of twenty twenty two. it's by pat farrier out of the colorado now remember there's been some state legislature talk about That becoming the norm banning plastic bags But there's only ten months before for collins ban the city band that got passed. A couple of months ago goes into effect. City officials are working through the details in analyzing how a recently passed state wide ban. My play into the local policy. This was back in april when fort collins of voters voted in support a ban on single use plastic bags at large grocery stores in a twelve cent fee for paper bags. Effective may first twenty twenty two. Obviously the goal here is to reduce plastic pollution and helped the city achieve. Its goal of zero. Waste by twenty thirty So city staff estimates. The policy could reduce bag us by seventy five percent earlier this month. The colorado general assembly passed a more comprehensive ban on single use plastic bags and polyester in to go containers beginning in two thousand twenty three. The bill is awaiting governor jerry polls signature allows municipalities to create policies more stringent than state law. But the the the ban for fort collins right now only applies to grocery stores larger. That's right larger than ten thousand square feet that sell at least four of the following item types staple foods meat produce dairy dairy products frozen foods or other perishable items primarily for human consumption. See you've got to sell at least four of those. So the list obviously kings hoopers Is market walmart Whole foods the list you know. Its grocery stores. Convenience stores in beavers market on west mountain avenue do not meet the size threshold and are exempt from the ban so They say one of the first steps for the city to review the criteria with each store and confirm their subject to the policy. Said molly sailor. The city senior sustainability specialist free Fee revenue will be split fifty fifty between the city and retailers. I get what what they're trying to do here with the plastic bag bag. Is it a waste gap probably. Is there a better way to go about it. That's all i'm asking. Is there a little bit better way to go about it then. Creating another fee for the consumers. S- twelve cents a bag. I mean there's got to be something better to go about it than say no more. You know you talk about Maybe getting some money back for reusing that plus bag. I've got personally my house. I've got a drawer full of the things they never get thrown away. They just a continuous cycle. I feel a lot of people are like that too so if you're shopping in fort collins Here relatively soon be sure. You've got your own way to get your groceries home or be ready to pay twelve cents a bag for a paper bag paper.

You know general seating but matchups is free. Stuff doesn't really mean anything. I don't think see you and see if you will meet in the first round. Because i think they're gonna fairly similar seeds so eight nine early. The only place they can do that but man how fun would that be a rocky mountain showdown in the ncaa. Tournament happened once before. Nineteen sixty nine if you beat see you to to make the elite eight but Certainly in the modern twitter era That would be one heck of a fun day. Yeah it absolutely would be and you saw see you kind of get back on track last night with a big win against oregon state but that would be That would be incredible for all of colorado fans to be able to to sit and watch that.

"You gotta you gotta get a sweeping rewrite. Yeah absolutely like you mentioned new mexico's bad. They're still even With their paws there. They've gone through so much. I mean they were. They were in lubbock for most of the season. I couldn't be at home practice at home. So they've been through a ton they're still down on. I think it's the maybe eight scholarship guys. They're really just kinda struggling through the year. So much going on with their their health regulations in new mexico. If you need to sweep a loss in either of these games would be very very bad for. Ncaa tournament hopes it would come close to killing them So sweet and this. That's the nice thing about it. You know even in the wyoming series. Say that rivalry jeff wonders. What he's building up there. Some special y- you're not you. You didn't want a split there. Obviously you get the sweep but this is the first series and a while that you say for for years you you have to have it and that's because you're half a game back out of utah behind utah state in the mountain west. There's a legitimate chance and a legitimate row forces you to win the mountain west conference. Yeah exactly and some you know. Utah state and boise state's off to play utah state. It looks like as an cova shutdown right now because they were wyoming series just got cancelled so so. That's another wrinkle. The things you have new mexico at home you go to nevada and then you have air force at home certainly those home games. Psu needs to take care of business and get four. More home wins to to be in that conference title. Mix then in about a month. will they do. They've got the easiest out right. Yeah i think so. I mean that series at nevada next week is very very hard but you know boise still. Has you know. San diego state. Utah state left. Utah state boise. Say obviously san. Diego say those boise state so so those top teams can all really. If you're you're you're probably rooting for splits and all this series because that means everyone is taking losses But yeah if you have the past there they they need some help. But but like i say because they're play each other they'll get some help But but there's certainly a realistic past the. Did you expect that to start the season. No i thought would be top four. I think i picked them either. Third or fourth in the preseason poll that seems like a long time ago the pop here but but no if you told me with three series to go they would be you know basically in a pseudo ties you know near the top i i. I didn't expect that they've they've i think exceeded most people's expectations and taking a leap forward this year. It's been a lot of fun to watch You know as you check the schedule if anyone out there is is looking at Schedule obviously you see a game..

"Well so be it. 'cause 'cause i'm not letting you get anything easy. The they football side of him. Coming out in that enforcer. I mean that's key to have a especially when you when you get into some of these these big time games you need you need that To be the more physical team here. So let's take a look ahead kevin. Obviously tonight you don't have to look very far ahead. i well i guess. Twelve hours ahead. It's nine o'clock tip off against the university of new mexico. What expect this series to go like against a bad new mexico team. This is such a strange setup because last week new mexico is suppose play san diego state and it got cancelled and there were reports coming out of new mexico that the team was going to get enough. Players are going to opt out that the team was gonna shut down and then it just didn't happen and it turns out that new mexico basically just got a a week off to to rest and recuperate which is very unique in. Yeah and they'll see issues certainly concerned that you know new. Mexico was not a covert shut down. My may be clear that so they were practising so they been. They basically have five weeks to prepare for. Cs you which is Obviously not not a basketball thing. That's the football thing so a very unique situation you said it you. Mexico is bad. They've struggled to still. Does you know they just need to take care of business. It doesn't really matter what new mexico did But is gonna be strange and it's gonna be interesting to see A mental and physical reset serve new mexico because that's not something teams generally are afforded in the middle of the season. And it's a very strange way how it all went down dukes in this is this is just me thinking here. Because i've been seeing this happened with some of the highschool games tip-offs maybe just being kind of all over the place. There's not as much set stuff in a normal year. Everybody be like what the hell did new mexico just do is. This isn't going to be a new thing that teams can. You know we're gonna shut down for a while And we'll start a up next week. That just can't be the case right. Yeah and that's what's so strange. Me obviously the cogan shutdowns. We totally understand that situation but yeah they. They had enough by all reports enough healthy players as far as cova but they had some guys are just kind of banged up with some other things and and yeah it kinda just didn't play. It's it's very unique. I can't see how it can continue this year. Everything so weird and everything's so on the fly that you know nothing's going to happen other than i wouldn't be shocked if they end up calling those just forfeit wins for san diego state But yeah i mean if this were a normal year and team did that you know it would be. It would be chaos. But i think with everything this year. It's like a alright like no one knows exactly how to navigate the season. So let's just charge for talking with kevin line the fort collins colorado and it's just craziness obviously see us you big favorites in these next two games..

"Poodle is ready to to handle this well and i think you know the through the fall. The you know did so that the That our our schools were hot spot. And i think there's a things that Did flare up. They had to You know basically isolate and do some things like that but You know. I think You know there's the vulnerable populations and and trying to And then they it was. We got around the thanksgiving timeframe there was a lot of Social mixing with Holidays and so forth Right after the holidays and so forth. And that's when our number started going up it wasn't it Due to our schools it was doodoo. Just I'm mixing And and and and in groups and that sort of thing so you know. I think if we keep an eye on those things that actually transmit to the virus And and if. We're not always keeping vigilant that if we have some of the symptoms and We isolate ourselves or At least get testing down and and then You know at sea issue for example. The testing there has been real literally phenomenal. And you didn't see any of the hotspot outbreaks that you been at many other universities and so i think it gives a lot of credit to the very proactive approach that You did with saliva testing. That can actually indicate the Wastewater testing than and also a lot of Individual testing For the The virus and you know it. You know going on campus. You really had to be tested before. He actually went on campus so All those things were very important know to help. Keep the virus down. And that's exactly where i was going next year. You're reading my mind going to talk you. And how well. They did handle that that first semester but they looked to come back and get things going here in this spring semester. It's still a little bit of a hybrid schedule from what i understand. But that testing really is. That's the difference maker in being ahead of the game here. i think so. And and also there's a little bit of delay with the virtual. I mean as starting virtually and then moving to more some of the In person and Hybrid kind of model And being to accommodate those. That might be coming back and allow some time if if there wasn't infection so it's not so we don't start up in person right away and and so You know. I think there's the right kind of precautions that recognizing that You know we still have a lot of the education. Just isn't a virtual game. It's a it's a sometimes a contact sport where you need to engage personally with a in certain ways and project You know. I teach a class where students are in small groups and doing hands on projects and that sort of thing so all. That's part of the education so we're trying to do it in a way that is safe and and but also it's maintains a high level of quality of education for collins. Mayor way trucks joining us this morning. Talking about the school systems getting back into place mayor. Obviously turn the calendar that means there's new elected officials in in place. Have you know that the lamoure county board of commissioners has had a big change over as well. How do you see twenty twenty one with this new new cast kinda going forward county well. One of the newly elected Lamoure county commissioners kristen stevens She was mayor pro. Tem and district four council member and We reluctantly I'd to accept her resignation so that she could be sworn in as county commissioner. I think she'll do a great job. We have a good relationship with the city and the county and and and then also Doty shattuck i think she'll she'll do a great job and and then also John follow so. I think i look forward to a good working relationship with our commissioners going forward Also in fort collins. We have april elections for our council. So there could be up to five.

We'll have election in april so that starting to just take shape in terms of candidates announcing and so forth right so i mean that could the whole landscape could look look drastically different mayor before i let you go here. I do want to talk about The first vaccine that was distributed in the state of colorado happen over in fort collins. How is the vaccine distribution. Been working from your local level. You know i've heard that the distribution has good. I i hear that we you know we. We would like to have four vaccine at this time. it's And you know. I i i'm not privy to how it's being distributed Broadly but You know You know. I just You know with are available populations and our and our frontline workers and that sort of thing you know.

I appreciate your time this morning. Is there anything else that we need to get out there to the people of northern colorado. You know tanner. I just wanted to wish you and all your listeners.

They really didn't have the uptick that we saw at at c. You for sure They had a couple of outbreaks. I believe but the handle the really really well. And as i pulled up the covid nineteen dial dashboard as he's talking and they currently sit as does everybody. I get it in level orange but the other things that you have to look at his decreasing or stable hospitalizations two week average. Positively all of that so right now decreasing her house or stabilizing hospitalizations. There ten days that is yellow. two. Week average positively. Let's get this pulled up. That is yellow. The only thing that they're off by is the two week cumulative incidence rate that you're supposed to be below three hundred and fifty to get into the orange category so they're read right now so now what you look at were. Do you look at two week average. Positively do you look at the decreasing or stable hospitalizations or do you look at the two week cumulative incidence rate that's the million dollar question right now. No one knows for sure what best to look at but larimer county it. Looks like they could be At least four that five-star program could be operating in in yellow very very soon ten fifty time.

"Cruising in on ten thirty six looking at these are tough conversations to have here talking about yesterday. There's no there's no. I don't think there's a right answer necessarily and i'm not saying that my opinion needs to be everybody else's but from what i saw. Yesterday i felt like i wanted a stronger response from the president and i'm hoping for a better response in twenty twenty one because both sides have it's it's just been a so we'll talk more about that later on the snow cone out about jeanine agencies. Tanner went thanks for being with us this morning. Joining us now up. On the hotline it is fort collins. Mayor wade trachsel mayor. Thank you so much for joining us. Happy new year danner. Happy new year to you too. Glad to join you again. Thank you absolutely so. Let's talk about get some good news that started up on monday. That has even though where mckinney was headed in this direction. They've been moved up to level orange. So a lot of your businesses able to operate at a higher level. Now you bet well that is good. News you know i think Just if not more importantly You know our numbers with regards to The virus and infections this point are actually heading down and and and that enables the orange We're actually we. We actually fall into the orange range and not just They actively governor and and And so it's good that Our cova bid infection rates are heading down our capacity in our Hospitals and so forth are are at reasonable levels and and things like that. So you know it's a real credit. I think to People in lamoure county our community that You know are are doing the right thing and and and and you know. I think there's a a healthy level of vibrancy within our businesses but You know we. We had a strong showing with our level up program that actually allows for the also the them to Provide for in inside the dining and at a reduced capacity but also to put the protections in place that You know that. allows for businesses to offer it at a higher level themselves but also operate safely and and You know i. I'm confident that we can continue to You know bolster our economy at the same time. Being safer as the vaccine is deployed You know more and more. But i think we have a ways to go yet before We're out of the woods. On 'send i really credit the people of lamoure county and fort collins that You know that you know keeping the virus down but also to support our businesses. I think we've done some other things too that have helped our businesses as well including for example in the takeout You know for delivery services are no we've Supported noko nash. As the delivery service that allows our restaurants to actually not pay more for delivery services because it's really Supported and operated by our restaurants In in fort collins in northern colorado so I you know so You know things like that and it's made a difference you know particularly when the margins are so tight and you have to Do some things that Really keeps the door doors open ride and all that good news moving into twenty twenty one. I think everybody needed some of that So now as i is this works and correct me if i'm wrong mayor but now Larimer county just has to stay in the orange range for seven consecutive days and then the members of that level up program we'll be able to operate at fifty percent capacity. Is that correct. That's right i You know. I know that because the level up and level orange and i wasn't sure how long it would take but i do that would allow them to Move to the yellow if they met certain conditions. So i think that's I again another indicator that you know keeping the virus down but also supporting our businesses so that they can stay open. Has that that dial. Dashboard been is confusing to you. As it has been to a lot of other people it seems like There's adding something new and new variable every single day. Well that's true. No it's been following by literally every day since The dashboard came out. And and you know it does with that new level indicator. That didn't quite always make sense. And but i think You know. I think it's a pretty amazing. How when listening to tom gonzales. Our county public health director Interpret the data so forth He could mean he's usually pretty spot on to know if we're going to be headed up or head down and and what we need to be doing and so you know. I think it's been an effective way of of indicating You know where Where the viruses and in our community along with some of the other things that are going on the The the wastewater testing and some things that you know we can identify hotspots and then do the contact tracing and and do the other things that really helped Localize and isolate and so that we can still operate at a at a at a level where You know our businesses can continue to operate. We're talking with fort collins mayor wade trucks here talking about this. This dial dashboard and You know the the local the local health officials play a big role in this and like you mentioned gonzalez and being able to have that that fluid conversation. That has to be a big help. It is you know. I think we've had a good relationship. The very transparent we meet. I talked weekly at least and and also try to help inform decisions that might be coming also It's it's been a month or so but also have a conversations with the governor and But you know. I think I honestly believe that l. trying to do the right thing in the balance of everything health and they are konami and and You know really Making sure you know and then with education and other sorts of things that You know it's there's a lot of balancing going on right now and so having those conversations are important right. And that's actually where i wanted to kind of go next with the education side of things so booder school district will be moving back to in person learning Starting starting up this semester. How do you. How do you feel about that. Do you feel confident that the.

That won a couple of the players will be predominantly from a couple of different schools here in the area but again club teams Lot of the players will be playing for the huskies island. Huskies when it comes to the chance of sanctions season. A lot of them will be playing over in fort collins for the impalas So that'll be a fun on the stream is now available. If you wanna watch that game instead of just listen listening to it. You can check it out on thirteen ten. Kfi dot com. That will be the best way to get to it. And you'll be able to to see if you wanna watch the game clark. Johnson will be on the call. Tomorrow at six o'clock with the pre-game show six thirty on the tip off for that one So yesterday i've talked about it. I the the people who broke into the us capital Should all be in jail. And in fact i believe last check who was forty four Forty four people who have been arrested and Ford ed a bunch okay. Fifty two arrested now wanted to get us as of thirty eight minutes ago Fifty two or fifty two arrested four dead. Fbi seeking information on some of the. How moronic do they have to be first of all to do what they did. But then you get in there and just you start taking selby's on on the speaker of the house desks like you're carrying out podiums. Those are going to be used against you. So that's a bunch of morons the way that it is. I mentioned it. Our poll question are you okay. With how president. Trump responded to the situation yesterday so far. It's kind of been split. I tend to and say no no not really i'm not I feel that it should come out stronger and what he was saying. It shouldn't have been prerecorded thing. It was less of a less than presidential manner in which he addressed it his message when it came out i get where he was going with it. And don't blame him for that but Fell like there was a better course of action. That should have been taken and and and it's going to. It's going to impact him. It's going to impact his legacy. The thing that i'm i may have more issues with yesterday than how he addressed. The rioters is how he addressed vice president. Pence vice president pence has been by his side for the last four years and look president. Trump has a been hasn't received a fair shake from the media at all throughout his his tenure as president but vice president pence stood by aside. Then they did a lot of good in the last four years with the foreign trade with the economy in the states. They had what i would deem as a successful presidency lost the election but for president trump to go after vice president pence. I don't understand it then again. That tweet that went out there. Mike pence didn't have the courage to do what should have been done to protect our country and our constitution. Giving states chance to certify correct that set of facts not the fraudulent or incorrect or inaccurate ones which they were asked previously certify. Usa demands the truth. I'd never thought this day would come where i would be talking about this With with president trump is this is the man that i voted for twice. And i know that that's something you normally don't put out there but it is and i just disagree with what went down yesterday. And how he went about it especially with vice president pence so his message a little. I came around on that. I understood why he said what he said in that video. Wish it would have been live where she would ford but we are. We are fooling ourselves if we think that the only people that this falls on our is president trump and the republicans and this is not me pointing fingers back and forth but it's both parties and it's become the way that we talk to each other and the way that we converse and the way that we argue in the way that we debate. Because if you don't agree with me. I hate you and you are a communist agree with me all of a sudden you hate me and i'm a racist that's been dialogue and it's been an unhealthy one. When nancy pelosi tore up the state of the union address speech that did just as much damage. this is. You're you're just completely wrong if you believe that. This is just from one thing. This has been boiling. And it's hard to talk about. It's it's a sensitive topic but right now people out. There are justifying the actions of those riders yesterday because of what we saw over the summer with. The black lives matter. Riots and i get that it's it's completely. It's two separate things in terms of what they were. Rioting four i get that. So let's set that aside but when you look at just a riots and how it was condoned by the left when the black lives matter. Movement was writing when kenosha wisconsin was set on fire and set on fire because of what our court of law proved that the officer was acting in self defense. So wisconsin can get burnt down with little to no ramifications. Okay guess what. That's now the precedent. That's the president going forward. If you don't like something burn it down and they were leaders that that would not come out and say this has to stop. They would come out later on eventually and say okay. Yeah that that was not a good look but during that time they will not step out and say this is what's going on and so it was a. It's a bad look on everybody. It made our elected leaders. Look like they did not have any control the matter and in some ways they didn't. But where do we go from here. How does the dialogue change. How do we learn from this because already listening to Different members of congress speak. The left is already pointing the finger and say and this is this president. Trump's fault he should be thrown in jail that dialogue that rhetoric is not going to fix anything it's not as for the the the republicans and the conservatives. The election is over. There was not it. There would have been proof by now by any any one of these judges would have taken this case in gone with it if there is any any bit of.

Wildfires Jeopardize Access To Drinking Water

"In many Western states, drinking water supply start high up in the mountains as reverse. This summer's record-breaking wildfires have reduced some headwaters, forest burn trees and heaps of Ash as Luke Runyan from member. Station K. U.. NC reports that often creates expensive headaches for water treatment plants long after the smoke clears. Few places in the West know how wildfires affect water supplies like Fort Collins Colorado the state's largest wildfire ever recorded is burning just outside the city now but their problems really started eight years ago before then it's main water source the poodle river was nearly pristine. We had been privileged and in some ways probably took for granted that these watersheds were providing. A consistently clean clear water all the time. That's Fort Collins Water Quality Manager. Jill or pays we're along the river just outside the city downstream from where in twenty twelve, the high park fire burned more than eighty, seven, thousand acres for the first year after the fire every time it rained the river turned black from mudslides we ended up with a lot. Of Sediment in our pipelines that was difficult to remove to keep those muddy flows from causing problems, the city installed an early warning system, a series of monitoring stations along the river. If there's too much sediment or a pays says utility workers can turn off the treatment plants intake and switch to water from a large reservoir it became really important for us.

"Well clearly, I think at a local level. I think giving information that we've known and well known I. Think we've acted appropriate at the right times and earlier. but I think you know our numbers have stayed. Low again we're starting to creep back up and and but you know. I think you know. What are the lessons learned well I. I think it's painful for everyone. No one's exempt from that particularly on the economic side, and and the number of people have lost, loved ones and and That's That's tragic as well I. What we're trying to do is is you? You know put the practices in place for They were putting. You know we're also you know. Colorado State University, having one thousand students back in our community and putting in measures there that you know that there isn't a additional spread from people traveling, and so forth and and You know that's concerning, but I think for the most part four calls remember county. has done a good job in in in in managing something that is clearly not only a dynamic virus, but we are continuing to learn more about that There was one thing that was I learned yesterday. As an example of the facial coverings is is there was an example with to beauty salons that to individuals that. Tested positive and they treated, or they had customers about one hundred forty customers, and where facial coverings not one of the hundred and forty customers got the Got Tested positive. So it's one of those things that you hear that you know. Facial coverings don't stopped disease, but it's really a a number of things that help to stop the disease as it relates to the general public and add is a facial covering can help reduce the spread from one person to another. If you're that other person, you have less possibility of picking it up if you're wearing a mask, if physical distance that goes down even. Further down into the the ten percent range, and so forth, and and the stay at home, and and self isolate no sorts even guys down to zero, so it's those aspects that all play together to get to the point where you keep the the transmittal of the virus to a a level that one are hospitals aren't overrun, but to We don't have to den take. Take more drastic measures in the closure of of over businesses and stay at home again. Well, mayor, there seems as in most things in life that there's always extremes on both sides, but I think when when you try and find this common ground. Regardless of what everybody's opinions are you know? We're still learning on this? This virus like you mentioned whether as asymmetric carriers. The transmission rate is lower on that. In like you mentioned. It's just kind of all about trying to find that common ground that we can slow that transmission rate another thing that you touched on was the Colorado State University. It is a go as of now. How is Fort Collins prepping for students coming back into Fort Collins. Well I. You know I. Think our know with our businesses. are brewpubs and their restaurants, and and our businesses. You know basically heavy measures in place in fifty percent capacity. We've we've done a number of things with the city to allow for the public right of way to be opened up for dining outside and in the streets and onto sidewalks. That allows for the capacity to increase to allow for the physical distancing as a relief to the students Colorado State. University is doing a large number of measures for students on campus, and and actually high level of..

"Is to suspend that and and you know? We've had some. Restaurant here and and business there that there as had an outbreak. You get on that and basically a trace it and and you have people self quarantine to the point where? You stop that spread if we get into the exponential spread that's where that's what you're seeing. And some of the hot spots in Florida and Texas and other Arizona and That's concerning for Collins Mayor Wade trucks, joining us a one of the things in a in a recent article that was put out by the Colorado that Tom also spoke on as well was. Was the the variants that had been granted to Fort Collins because those numbers were low saying that that is prudent to be able if you if fort. Collins wants to keep that variants that was allowed. Numbers have to stay down. He put it at a medium to medium. High chance of these numbers growing. Are you concerned that that variance could be pulled mayor? Well I'm right with elaborate county health director, and and frankly if If we you know there's there's are not number that they look at it and if it's less than one, then the virus is not spreading if it's greater than one, and if it's starting to creep up in the twos and threes and and and that would basically be the indicator to help to so things down and not open things up, so again I think it's important that everyone take precautions to. To do what they can't protect their own health through the the hygiene, wash your hands and use facial coverings, and the physical distance and do that in order to keep keep the spread from of the virus and and I think that's you know that's important on everyone, and that's where you know. Facial coverings as some have said that's a personal freedom issue, and and you know so. Is having a stop sign and the? The speed limit but you know for the greater good that you need to also have some element that a for a safe streets, and in one case or say safe, public health, and another case where we basically slow and stop the spread of the virus through these actions, mayor way trucks will Fort Collins. Mayor joining us mayor. This is obviously been I wanted to say along couple of months, but it seems like certainly. Certainly turned into a long year. Already looking back at this now now that we see more information now than we I mean. There's a lot about this disease in that. We don't know but looking back on. Is there anything that you may said okay? We should have done this differently. You know kind of playing that for lack of a better term the Monday morning quarterback. What is what are your thoughts on? How Fort Collins has.

"Time getting him on the program and I think that's something we're going to continue to do Because the mayor giving great update of love is tie in with you as well to be able to get a frontline. Look at what's going on in Fort Collins and look they took more of a severe Stance on this from the get-go and I think it surprised a lot of people that the numbers didn't didn't rise as rapidly in Fort Collins. Now you can look at a couple of things as well. I mean it's a. It's a very very much a college campus driven town so as soon as that as soon as everybody went home. That have there's so many different ways that you can look at it. But the fact of the matter is is that Blair county has requested Lightening of restrictions from the state. And we'll see what happens there but Great Great Conversation with mayor. Wait trucks will. That will be on the PODCASTS. That will be going up as soon as the show is over. He was our special guest for the afternoon. Let's dive into what has been again like I talked about at least for sure here. Northern Colorado and Seems to be across the nation. The talk of the nation is win will restaurants reopen. And what will it look like well? Part of the restrictions that Lamoure County is asking to get lightened include restaurants and bars. So let's first before we dive into what they think that this is going to look like. I think it's very important to look back at what the initial plans were. Because this is something that I've been even vocal I don't WanNa say criticizing but vocal about of changing the narrative from finding the key. Excuse me from flattening the curve to finding the cure. I've been vocal about that as well. The changing the narrative. So I wanted to go back and I thought it was interesting a month ago. I actually believe it. It was a little bit longer than that. It was April seventh Governor police had this to say when restaurants can return to an restaurant dining. It's unlikely that'll be at full capacity that a likely. How take table capacities? It'll be so they'll be Biden's like that and then we're going to monitor that and track that you know in real time so doesn't sound too far off right because that's something that has still been the narrative is that probably not going to open ran off the Bat That one hundred percent capacity in fact. It's not going to happen and I thought it was interesting because it lines pretty well up and Colorado say what you will about. The elected officials has stayed true to their narrative. It has been in in. What is the quote on quote? Unprecedented Times they've stayed true to the narrative whether it's governor polls whether it's the county commissioners Fort I'm speaking of of all the County Commissioners Weld County Larimer County Commissioners. They've straight true to their narrative and I think something has to be amended for that they have to be they have to be Applauded for that so restaurants and bars. Let's dive into this coming back out of the.

"Noko now. Thanks for joining us here on a Tuesday afternoon as we got through our news stories. Now it's time for our featured guest joining me now. Very honored to be having him is Fort Collins Mayor Wade trachsel mayor. Thanks for taking some time and wanting to shine some light on how your city has handled the cove in nineteen pandemic kanter glad to be on the show and Glad update you on what's going on in Fort Collins well You know like Like everyone else in the and you know we since about mid March or in a whole different world and with that Fort Collins is Basically You know gone through the the stay in place orders. And now they're safer in place and and And being a community of about one hundred seventy five thousand people and High-tech community with a lot of technology companies and and Colorado State University About THIRTY TWO THOUSAND STUDENTS. You know that has a lot different kind of Implications says it's a impacted four collins but you know in terms of there's two aspects to The Kobe nineteen pandemic is one is the health aspect and and I can report Lamoure. County and Fort. Collins has Done very well in terms of E- comparatively in terms of I don't know the exact numbers but you know. Four hundred and thirty five something like that with positive. Koga cases Over that time and then about nineteen deaths so each death that that's an unfortunate but I'm GonNa put you on Speaker because Harris on here so make sure so anyway So Anyway You know we're working through the health aspects and now We're actively Beginning to step down and You know basically You know social or physical distance inside like to consider it's an important part along with have facial coverings and Fort Collins so where you can't socially physically distance. And then you know all the good hygiene aspects but I really credit the people of Fort Collins Amer County for really keeping me. You know basically knocking the curve down and and That's where we are today with the health part of it well in mayor. You know Some would say the restrictions were a little more strenuous inland county. I don't think there's any doubt about that but it seems to be paying off now as Larimer County is now asking for for lighter. The lighter corona virus restrictions from the guy from the state government right so number county. Health Director Tom Gonzales has made a request for variances With respect to a number of different aspects and con consultation with our business community or chamber of Commerce and others in terms of considerations for variances with respect to Our businesses opening up. And I think that makes complete sense where There's a deliberate process to think about How do Safely engage in the opening up and and I was on a call earlier today with the with the health director and and You know I think for the most part We've been very much aligned with with the actions as well as You know the reasons why and and I think that illustrates I think the The numbers in county speaking with for Collins Mayor Wade trachsel and mayor as we look at this you mentioned some of those numbers substantially down from some of the other areas around northern Colorado around the state. However I don't envy your position I think That all of our elected officials are working through things that they would have never seen coming. How is that communication process? Ben and how is that working relation Working Relationship Ben with you talked about the county health director and the county commissioners. There's so many different plays. How has that worked in Lumber County? Well I think reasonably well I think at the that We're right in the middle of it so I think that You know we'll reflect upon When we get through this and and improvements that sort of thing but I think for the most part it's worked Reasonably well You know and it's you know being in only the second inning of the game. It's hard to talk about the game ends but I think it's It's worked reasonably well. We have our emergency operation center. That is one of the main coordinating factors in Lamoure County and that includes the city of Fort Collins our Ese point of contact as well as Lamoure County and and and other jurisdictions and and I think that's worked reasonably well and and addressing The initial You know two two and a half months of the Of the covert then Demi can and I. We continue to have weekly calls and you know. Now we're focusing on the recovery aspect and and how do we You know for again Fort Collins. I think How we open up our University and our community colleges and so forth such that Thirty two thousand students coming to campus in the fall that What we want to avoid And I think at a great cost would be Second wave and having to go back to the lockdown and so I think our best strategy is to is to go slow and steady with respect to the stepping down And Begin and having the testing and the Tracing and the isolation in place such that for the next year and a half or two years. That'll be a more of a new normal if we can Avoid the second way and You know Pandemics of the past have shown. That's a that's a tendency particularly Gets into the colder months. And so you know I think now it's I'm I'm really proud about our businesses. How many have pivoted? And how many continuing to provide for key Goods and services in our community and as we open up. They'll be Very creative and how. They're operating their business. Such that Are citizens of our community and guests can be a safe place and And Joy all that four collins has to offer during the summer months as we continue our conversation here with mayor. Wade trucks of Fort Collins in mayor. What you know communication now more than ever is so vitally important no matter in which direction it's flowing But especially from your office to your citizens. What what is your message to them. As is the analogy. You used was where the second inning of a nine inning ballgame. This is starting to wear on some people. What has been your message throughout this. But especially now's we started to progress. Well I think it's one of of empathy. This is hard on everyone. whether it's from a health perspective lives or with lively and and And something that We haven't seen in our lifetime for sure and I think there's a sense for empathy and understanding and caring about each other and reaching out those best we can. It may not be physically but You know in carrying about each other you know. I think the other thing is being honest and authentic about the situation that we have but also being Creative and and Innovative as we look to our future. And that's part of the ethos of Fort. Collins is being creative and innovative and thinking about solution so one. There's a a quite a number of projects going on with Colorado State University or one health institute and and The Center for Disease Control Another's on on backsied and and things That can not only help Fort Collins but hopefully Colorado the United States in the world. And that's the kind of spirit that we have here in. Fort Collins is people carrying about people and also we have very creative people and also very innovative people and and You know it's it's it's You know it's it's It's trying to respond appropriately or to the time and and as we enter the recovery that we do the thing that We avoid the hard downside but we also focused on the silver lining of of where we're going in the next us Three months six months nine months and a year so think. It's a combination of empathy Being the authentic and truthful with one another and particularly from us as leaders within our community and then one really looking to the future. And and how can we Make our community more resilient for the future. We'll MIRA and I'll open it up to let you brag on on CBS. You a little bit over there. They've been in the news like you mentioned talking about Talking about possibly finding a cure finding vaccine And not only that but when when it was dire for the PPI the personal protective equipment ceus. You really stepped up and I know you've got a very close relationship with you bet. Well you know it's amazing. The kind of People that are at sea issue. And the kind of expertise they have. Oftentimes they're more known globally than they are right at home and and and bringing that kind of expertise particularly with regard to Do An audit diseases humidity level epidemological You know things that that We don't usually See on the front page every day. But now they're part of our everyday and there are a lot of great people at Colorado State University and And it's a great resource for Northern Colorado for sure who last week would have been a graduation. I believe correct. That's right so Last week was Graduation and and The A lot of virtual graduations and and Making a proclamation tonight about to graduates of twenty It's a memorable time They should all be congratulated for their accomplishments that they made. They won't forget about this time in many different ways in the future. It'll be permanent bookmarked in history. And and Congratulations to all the graduates. A high school and College at UNC Colorado State University at Community Colleges. Congratulations for all the Your accomplishments so far completely agree couldn't have set a better mayor way trucks. Okay last question moron. A light hearted note Mayor with let's skip ahead to win ever. It is when this is all done. Things are open backup. We've are safe or confident in in where we're going with things. What's the first thing that you're going to do when everything gets opened back up over there you know? I think I I think we're all We appreciate things even more today. I think that ability to travel to see one another I'm very much. I think the nature of being a mayor people person and and Being at home all the time is not necessarily in my normal nature but I think I love being out in the community. I love meeting with members of our community. And and the great things that they're doing and You know that's probably the the the thing that For the most I completely agree. I can't wait to get back to one of your great breweries over in Fort Collins as well excited for that to open backup mayor. Is there anything that we missed that we need to need to talk about?

Dan appreciate the opportunity being on a radio with you today and I just like to thank our area mayors. That's another thing I would.

"No cohn our tanner. Swint thanks for joining us on this Tuesday afternoon. Ryan Kellyanne doing production. Work Blunt show lined up. We'll get to a couple of news stories here in just a second In just a second but we do have a fun interview with Mayor. Wade trucks the Fort Collins Mayor. Very excited to talk with him. There's big news coming out of Fort Collins too. So that's something that will dive into and then restaurants reopening. It seems to be the talk of not just the town. I think it's the talk of the nation right now and in. What way will they open will dive into that as well? Look back on what Governor Police is supposed to be putting out some guidelines here before too long. He said that yesterday that it would be sooner rather than later For these guidelines to be coming out but we have not seen anything yet. He he did say was either yesterday or today. Still nothing from the governor as soon as we see it but we're going to look back at what his initial thoughts were and dive deeper into that. And then of course we get a headline that caught my eye. But let's get into this. Let's start from this first story. via thirteen ten K of K DOT COM multi billion dollar shortfall forecast for the Colorado budget State lawmakers are maker picking the best of two bad options in their quest to cut billions. Yes billions with a b from the next Colorado budget. The legislature's Joint Budget Committee says Revenue Forecast. From the governor's office shows. The state will have a multibillion dollar shortfall over the next year drew the Corona Virus. Outbreak forecasters say. The situation is likely to be even worse in the twenty twenty two year So scary stuff right off the Bat. But we knew this was coming right and now it's time to continue that innovation. We've talked so much about how the ingenuity and how people have gotten creative through this crisis while our government's going to have to do the same thing that's just the fact of the matter. There's only so much for NANTEUIL aid out there for everybody. Multibillion DOLLAR SHORTFALL. So you're going to see some cuts coming some major cuts coming when you're talking about billions and billions of dollars so that coming from thirteen ten. Kfi DOT COM. Let's jump to the Loveland reporter Herald Lamoure County clerk encourages voting early by mail to eat. Cova nineteen strain. This is something that we heard disgust between president. Trump and governor Paula's Or last week rather when they were talking about well they had the in person meeting and and president trump brought up that he is not a fan of the mail in voting. Colorado's implemented it. Both parties have agreed on it. They enjoy it and now Lamoure County clerk and recorder Angela. Myers is asking area. Voters to register and vote in the June primary election as early as possible this year to offset the procedural challenges posed by Cova. Nineteen this for Max Max. Levy out of the Loveland reporter Herald besides rules on gathering sizes and mask wearing the Myers. Anticipates will be enforced at polling places. She said the number of election judges allowed to gather in one place. We'll be limited quote we're going. We're expecting that is going to slowest down dramatically. She said Meyer said. Her office is working with the county health department setting up barriers so individuals may safely work within six feet or one of another. That is something that's been lost in. All of this is that eight is still an election year. I think it's been lost for for. Most people is that it is an election year. Not just a presidential election year but even at the local at the local levels whether it's city county. Whatever the case is there seems to be a lot of those political ads starting to run around that I know we all love so much. The article continue continues. She's still she said. Voters are being encouraged about early and by mail whenever possible to avoid problems at polling places. Election Day is June thirtieth and bounce will be mailed the week of June eighth voter registration may be created or updated online..

Stimulus checks being sent to dead people, leaving loved ones confused

"In under a month the IRS delivered more than a hundred and thirty million corona virus relief payments to Americans that's two hundred and seven billion dollars that was part of the relief package passed by Congress during the public health crisis but the speed has come with some significant mistakes NPR's Tim mak has been talking to the families of dead Americans who got coronavirus relief checks Bob lemon dues father passed away in December so Bob who lives in Houston notified the V. A. and the Social Security Administration that his father had passed in order to stop payments from them and those were halted but on April fifteenth Bob who is a co signer on his dad's account noticed a payment in the amount of twelve hundred dollars he was a corona virus relief payment from the IRS I feel bad that this money is sitting in my dad's account I don't know what to do with it and there are people out there that need it badly and that bothers me quite a bit I wish I knew what to do with it but I don't treasury secretary Steve Mnuchin said one week ago that any payments to the deceased would be a mistake and should be returned but this is raised more questions than answers this mass confusion that's Jenna holds what of the urban Brookings tax policy center there's been no official guidance as to how in this instance people should return the money that was received for their loved ones the Irish does not typically track information on the deceased in America but other parts of the government such as the social security administration do it appears that there was no cross referencing before checks went out the scope of the problem could be in the millions the CDC estimates that two point eight million Americans died in twenty eighteen for example and there are signs that people who have died more than two years ago are receiving payments Karen McClure of fort Collins Colorado experienced this first hand her mother passed away in January of twenty eighteen but in April of this year she received a payment of twelve hundred dollars the government is being very reactive instead of proactive to this situation which I I find frustrating mark Iverson is the former IRS commissioner serving from two thousand and three to two thousand and seven he told NPR that the IRS has generally been doing a good job but there's a real trade offs of speed versus accuracy in the processing he says the people in this situation should rely on official guidance people need to rely on the information they get from IRS dot gov but that's not so easy when it comes to this topic three so will not the seventy one year old in Rockford Illinois has been trying to do just that she lost her partner of thirty nine years Frank dica just two months ago last month he received the payment I'm coping with Frank stuff pretty well at this point I'm not over it I probably will never be over it but it didn't that part didn't bother me I'm I'm probably angrier at the government for sending out a payment to somebody who's deceased three says been trying without success to find guidance online from the IRS to send the money back so I went online to the address on the letter and looked for a long time trying to find some way that I could first send the payment back and I couldn't find that so look for a way to contact somebody at the IRS or treasury or whatever to return the payment and I couldn't find that NPR did not fare much better than Theresa after multiple requests the IRS directed questions to the treasury department the treasury department pledged to have an answer by Tuesday morning as of the sharing the treasury department has not answered questions about what steps the IRS is taking to address this problem or what to do if a deceased loved one

"He's with Gail. Fueled by Great Western. Petroleum Vinson Carol in the Denver. Post had a little something something to say about that. And we could wrap it up in a nutshell not according to what we know right now as he writes having misled the public initially on the useful usefulness of Mass during the covert nine thousand nine hundred a pandemic government officials far and wide are now completing their one hundred and eighty degree. Pivots as we've worked through During the first hour of the show but it begs the question because something. That doesn't go far enough. Should government mandate face coverings outside too? Well almost every single aspect of cove in one thousand nine. It's fair game for debate. A grant to that but given what we know at present the transmission of the virus from people walking running or biking outside again. I'm not talking about clusters. Let's go ahead and Practice safe social distancing but it appears unlikely this according to most accounts if theoretically possible so no government needs to cool its jets and it's not just me one study. Scientists captured air samples within two medical facilities in Wuhan China as well as in public places around the city. New York Times reported very little virus was detected in the air of isolation wards or inpatient rooms of the hospitals why because they were well ventilated but elevated concentrations were measured in well smaller toilet about one square yard inside which were not ventilated being outdoors. Isn't that the very definition of being well ventilated? Jonathan Kaye is the Canadian editor of DOT COM catalog fifty eight Cova nineteen infection clusters super spreader events as they're called as as es super spreader events found that almost all of the s s es place indoors where people tend to pack closer together in social situations. Where once again? Then deletion is poorer now to be clear. Some scientists do advocate wearing masks outdoors but news articles have quoted plenty of experts. Discounting the risk of bleeding encounter on a sidewalk or in a park in the Wall Street Journal for example if you're outdoors and appropriately distance from other people. It's highly unlikely you will be exposed this according to Henry Chambers a professor in the Division of Infectious Diseases at the University of California San Francisco in slate.

Fort Collins cuts carbon from city operations by 20%

"Four Collins. Colorado recently celebrated twenty years of Climate Action Over Time. The cities become increasingly ambitious. It's climate action plan now called for the entire community to be carbon neutral by mid century that includes residents and businesses but the city is improving. Its own operations to. We're trying to model all the things that we're trying to ask for across the community. Machel Feachem is the city's sustainability specialist. She says the city is prioritized energy efficiency. We make sure that we're building efficient buildings and we are constantly going back to say h HVAC systems on the pool or the ice rink and remodeling those and making sure that they're efficient. The city is also expanding its use of electric vehicles. Venom says when a car or light duty truck reaches the end of its life it's replaced with an e and what that has a lot to do is very very steadily replace. Our fleet with electric vehicles. Ford Collins has cut carbon pollution from municipal operations by more than twenty percent below two thousand and five levels. The wider community is expected to do the same. This year we're putting policies and plans in place that will make this a better community

Love it or hate it, the Epic Games Store is raking in the cash

"EPA Games. They have a store. Perhaps you've heard of it Anybody Oh yeah they keep giving me free games. Yeah they sure do in fact they're going to keep doing trade these games. It's more V box. What are we doing? I guess for all of this year as well as just last year when you continue doing that okay making money they put out a they put out a big infographics this morning. And I guess Tim Sweeney's about they're doing interviews and stuff they're basically disclosing a bunch of figures about the epic store The most salient ones are they claim. One hundred And eight million customers on the game store okay and seems like how many they had like at the launch of the stores from Fort Collins. I should find it in the story. Okay so yeah. They're saying now they have three hundred million total epic accounts gotTa okay across all platforms forms. So presumably the rest of those people wind four-night. That's a fucking lot on phones and stuff right now but consoles one hundred eight million. They're finding customers on the APP store as anybody who has ever taken part in a transaction on the store they still even if it's a free game downloaded a free game once on the epoch store. They're counting you as a customer. So that's kind of fuzzy number. People that are in that are now all to buy a game. Yeah so that they can market to say hey phoenix point or whatever right but they do say that. The store has generated six hundred eighty million dollars so far by giving we game spit spent by people crazy money. They have brought in revenue very different for them. I'm curious about the pure profit and then surprisingly they broke out the number of off the amount of money that was spent on their games which is two hundred and fifty one million of that six eighty. What's the mood? More than half of the revenue in the first year is is is spent on epic games impressive team. What was the big so fortnight but wasn't as Borland Serie and no I mean it's exclusive on the on the okay? Okay now but that would that would fall under third party PC games that's really weird. That's like do. They have does advocate of anything besides fortnight that anybody would spend money on at this point probably not. There's that other mobile game to that Obama. PC thinks okay presumably most of the shadow complex. Because I think is not free anymore. Probably most of this junk is four night revenue. But that's a quarter of a billion dollars.

Study: Fossil fuels will be necessary in cold winters

"Anew big picture. I tell us what this study in applied energy measured. This is a study that looked at heating transitions from fuels lake fossil fuels, like natural gas and propane to 'electricity with the hope that when they electrically becomes a renewable electricity makes we would decarbonised our heating, and we were able to through the sustainable, healthy cities, network rain together researchers from Columbia University, which, which led the study, my own group from the university of Minnesota, our colleagues from Colorado state university, who provided data about Fort Collins and Florida State University that had. Dade on Tallahassee. So it was a fascinating comparison of full, very different cities to see what, how can we decarbonised heating and cooling? And I looked at some of the numbers in the study, they're quite interesting. What did you find about the optimal energy mix for states like Minnesota to be both climate-friendly and reliable. So this is very interesting. So the study compared moving from heating as I said, which is now by combustion, so we bun, natural gas furnaces, and the hot air is, basically transmitted throughout the house, and that's the predominant way we he doubled ings. And this would switch to a heat bump, which basically takes air from outside and increases temperature and circulates and this. Electrically driven heat pump. We looked at two technologies one as an air source heat, bump rich draws air. The other is. Ground source heat, bump, which taps into your ground temperature with stays about fifty five to sixty degrees Fahrenheit and can be used both for heating in winter and for cooling in summer, and then we said, if we were to move to electrically driven heating and cooling. And if that electricity could be obtained from around us regionally through solar and wind, what is the, the variability of solar, and win that matches the patterns of demand. So it's really how do you match the supply with demand what we found was in our region. The patterns don't match the optimum availability of solar, and wind, just because I mean, even in day to day, you know, we need heat when it's late at night on us and shining. And if you also look at the monthly availability of boat wind and soda, it wasn't as good a match as it was in the other cities. So this is just how the city's demand and the supply of wind and solar. Around, you are weather and climate system works up here. Yeah. So what we found was even the best case you could get about seventy percent penetration of this mix of wind and solar, which for us is more towards wind and less solar. So the numbers were interesting when you combine this twelve hour storage, which will get to in a minute renewable, energy, penetration could reach eighty percent of New York City, seventy percent in Minneapolis, eighty three percent in Tallahassee and sixty nine percent in Fort Collins. So could we say that for your purposes here that means that seventy percent of power through, renewables is a practical, upper limit in Minnesota? So that's what this study is finding if we were to look at just the heating, so heating and cooling. And we also looked at round source heat bumps with thirty six hours of storage for heating and you could go up a little bit to seventy four. Percents. And the study basically says that has a slightly extra higher cost, but ground source heat pump might give you other aspects of reliability. So there's a, you know, we lay out that argument is that technology here today. Yes. Grandmas. Hit bump is here, and there are rebates offered four grandsons. He here's a quote from the study, it says the study found that the use of fossil fuels would still be needed to meet peak demand in cold climates, like Minneapolis and Fort Collins, this is because renewable energy cannot be produced at the rate needed to meet demand during the coldest month. So in that scenario is the rest of that likely natural gas and nuclear power so that these great questions. So it could be natural gas. We could also be thinking cities like Saint Paul and Minneapolis, which already have district energy systems. This could be a wonderful way of thinking about growth in our region. And how to have that growth, be more. Impact so that you can have shed heating and those district energy systems can be flex fuel as you already know. And so they could use biomass, I think waste to energy options would be fantastic, because they
