"So in a new gallup poll and and gallup is starting t me off a little bit because we asked them look. We need the methodology of your poll and refused to give it. Their methodology is how many democrats how many republicans. How many independence do you talk to. There's no reason why they shouldn't give it unless there's some sleight of hand so anyway.

Show is the real focus of the campaigning. Because it's the sponsor of this new exhibition of future planet on climate solutions on things like carbon capture and storage which fossil fuel companies often overstate in order to keep drilling from all oil and gas.

Can Fossil-Fuel-Dependent Wyoming Build a More Diverse Economy?
"In wyoming the coal oil and gas industries provide jobs for more than twenty thousand people and these industries generate taxes mining royalties and fees that. Make up about half of the state's revenue so as the country transitions to cleaner energy. And the fossil fuel industry declines. It's difficult to create economic development state. That could kind of make up for these losses. Robert god isn't economist. At the university of wyoming. He says the growing wind industry can help but it will not on its own. Fill the gap. It's very difficult to see renewable energy replacing either the employment or revenue in this state. That's been lost with the decline of fossil fuel production. So he says the state will need to develop a more diverse economy. That's less reliant. On any single industry in the short term that requires education and training for workers and aid for hard hit communities and in the long term it means developing new industries in the rural west to adjust to this new world where fossil fuels are in lower. Demand really requires a fundamental change in the state's economy and that doesn't happen

Uk's credibility as president rests on demonstrates climb action hub and yet much like the government's feld pandemic response which has left one hundred thirty thousand people. Dead government is acting too slowly prioritizing prophet over public wealthy. You know what's good symbolic actions are important.

Biden Is Pushing For A Major Expansion Of Offshore Wind Energy
"Today the white house announced in am vicious plan to expand the nation's use of offshore wind power it's part of president biden's campaign promise to create new jobs and tackle climate change by investing in green infrastructure. Npr's jeff brady joins us now and jeff. The us doesn't produce much wind energy at all right now. So what's the administration's plan. This is something that europe is far ahead on compared to the us Though several states have their own plans basically the administration is trying to make up for lost time so it setting a big goal. Thirty gigawatts of offshore wind power by twenty thirty. That's enough electricity to power more than ten million american homes for a year according to the white house now. Currently there's only one offshore project operating massachusetts and rhode island but they have to ramp up quickly to meet biden's climate goal of net zero greenhouse gas emissions from the power sector by twenty thirty five and fast change like that can make people uneasy especially in the fossil fuel industry. That's one reason white house. National climate adviser gina mccarthy focused her comments on opportunities. This is all about creating great jobs in the ocean and opposite cities and in our heart win all across america revitalize communities in particular those that have been left behind the administration says this expansion will support thirty two thousand construction and support jobs through twenty. Thirty mccarthy says some of those heartland jobs include manufacturing turbans making steel and building the special boats. It'll be needed now. The administration has this big goal for building a lot. More wind turbines. But how are they actually going to make that happen. The interior department is establishing a new wind energy area and the new york bite. And that's the relatively shallow water between long island and the new jersey coast. The agency is starting an environmental review process for the proposed ocean wind project off new jersey. Then they're looking at locations on both coasts and in the gulf of
Water Justice - Actress Gloria Reuben, Waterkeepers Alliance
"I'd like you to meet gloria reuben. Who was a trustee of the waterkeeper alliance from two thousand seven to two thousand ten and served as an advisor to former vice president. Al gore's environmental organization called the climate reality project and on other natural resources groups as well you will also likely recognize her from her appearances in television series like er and marvel's tv cloak and dagger among others as well as in movies like lincoln and a reasonable doubt. Welcome to green captions radio glorious. Thank you so much for joining us. Thank you for letting me join you. Joe. oh no problem. It's my pleasure my pleasure so let's start with. What condition is our water supply and today as president biden starts his first term as president. What is the water supply. He is inheriting well. I think we would all agree over these last four years the previous president did pretty much anything that he could to eviscerate our clean out air clean water regulations so it is very exciting last night to to witness our new president president. But i didn't as he signed the papers to rejoin the paris climate agreement and to roll back some of the deregulations that the former president clearly. There's a lot of work to be done but that once. We have obviously a leader in place president in place who believes in science and who listens to scientists and who believes in climate change and listens to the scientists gusta climate change and who obviously is a great advocate for the wellbeing of all americans of all peoples that is definitely a hopeful sign the destruction that happened in the last four years previous to President by being sworn in cannot be changed overnight but Reliance as very proud very excited to be on the front lines of this. Very important fight to have drinkable swimming. Fissionable waters for americans and for people around the globe. As you said. I mean it's extraordinary when you can get two point. Five million miles of waterways being protected from from our local over three hundred and fifty plus waterkeeper groups around globe. That's a huge thing. It's a lot of miles. So i'm really excited to join forces again rejoined forces again with this extra organization and in a leadership role so is the did the rollbacks that the trump administration did did they actually result in more water pollution. I mean we obviously have the flint michigan situation but that was not trump. That was the governor in michigan. Right when you talk about pollution in the waterways that goes very much to industries like fossil fuel industries of course like factory farming like businesses corporations. That are allowed to just kind of dump their way store there By rhonette of of making things of manufacturing into the waterways when there's no regulation The clearly people can just do what they want at their own. Well not have to pay any consequences you know it all comes down to first thing which is reenacting these laws again. Going back in place and then enforce laws are terrific things to have. But if they're not enforced than what's also it's important to remember that one of the things that president biden as well last night was to cancel the keystone pipeline. Which has as many of us know has been an ongoing issue for years now. And if i think about it the former president were elected. That very well may have happened. Now i've been to alberto into the athabasca river. I've seen the destruction that's happened with trying to suck out oil from sand. It's not an easy process. Takes more gallons of water from the athabasca river to make one barrel of oil and that is destruction destroy not just obviously the environment but the first nations people that have lived on that land for generations. So it's a it's a trickle down effect if you will of Polluters of Whether they be industries or or again corporations or even individuals whether or not brought to justice when when when there's no law to protect people that lived in that area then it's a free fall and You know. I was a newly appointed just over two months ago so the lot to catch up on. It's a lot of information that i'm soaking up. And we can't wait to be able to fly again safely obviously in good all corners of the world to to meet in person a lavar extraordinary water keepers are clean water warriors. I want i'm sure i'm sure. So does the waterkeeper alliance have a checklist of things that they want. The biden administration. To do i mean are there. Water infrastructure investments Besides putting back in place the clean water act. i mean. We hope that's happening soon. But maybe you're disappointed. It didn't happen right away. What kinds of investments and specifics are you looking for from president biden. Yes well. I think you know as you mentioned. Clean water act course. Everything can happen in one night. So we're confident that that will be reassigned. Only shocks right. I know but go back to the industry. Portion coal ash coal pollution cola. Hashes is definitely something that needs to be addressed in taken care of again. The factory farming issue is a huge thing. Learn in this country. North carolina again. I've been to north carolina. I've seen those ways. They call the ponds or lagoons. They tried to make these names. Sound like it's a recreational place yet now. These are ponds at are made of animal. Waste that seat into the waterway. So that's definitely something that needs to be handled in terrific water keepers in that region. An area that are that are winning lawsuits against not of these factory farms. I think that You know the overall climate issues that Is a abroad umbrella. You'll and plastics. We we all know again. You know plastics Issue jim global issue for sure so clean water act coal cocoa factory farming. These i think are are three very big tangible things that that can be addressed. Well we can he can pass. He can propose legislation that punishes. And as you say enforcement is critical these industrial polluters. It's you know taking a page out of the erin brockovich book relay right but these things also and i totally support on plastic pollution. To get me started on that one will be here for hours but a lot of these things require congressional approval and even though the democrats biden's party control both the house and the senate it's by d. Tiny itsy-bitsy margin right. So how do you. And i know that president by misspeaking bipartisanship since the very first days of his campaign and did so in his inaugural address etcetera but washington is still gridlock. So what's your outlook for whether for example getting factory farming in any kind of legislation. You know control of it. Is that realistic. Yes i think so for. Sure i mean again. These things take time an in carolina. I just wanted to north carolina. Just specifically in that region aren't bringing they aren't litigating certain cases in terms of factory farming. When it comes to the government The legislation in two to be passed in congress isn't going to be tricky but i am the only way to stay in this to even to say yes to this to stay because this is a long term long time mission is to is to keep positive and to just keep on doing. The things that we know will work again. The positive aspects are yes. We do have a house in the senate. So that's a hopeful thing at you know. We don't know what the future will hold of course but for right now we have the majority so that means that and again you know. We have leaders in place who do not deny the truce and they don't make falsities in order to remain in power. There are those who do that. But you know our president and vice president
"fuel industries" Discussed on 77WABC Radio
"Thousands of fossil fuel industry workers whether it's pipeline workers or construction workers who are either outward or will soon be out of work? Because well by E. O when it is and where it is that they can go for their green job? I'm just curious when that happens when those people can count on that. Well, it certainly welcome you tow present your data of all the thousands and thousands of people who won't be getting a green job. Maybe next time you're here you can present that you could present another look See, this is why the impeachment trial is so important to them. They could get away. Look, this pipeline cancelation, close 11,000 good paying union jobs directly. But there are a couple of like 20,000 jobs in directly connected to those jobs in the areas where they were building the pipeline. So you have about 30,000 jobs being lost, and it's very uncomfortable and there's no gain for the environment. No game whatsoever. In fact, the environment stands to lose. Because now they're gonna have to transport this oil via railroad by a truck by a barge. Now you have carbon emissions as opposed to another ground pipeline where it just flows through. It's supposed to go from Canada through the United States, ultimately down to the refineries in the Gulf of Mexico, But now it's instead of a pipeline. As I mentioned, it's gonna be all these other monster trucks, etcetera, etcetera. Also fox News this woman Kirsten fishing who she is good looking, redheaded lady who has completely gone the other way. Another very, very touchy subject right now is of Course, the the influx of illegal immigrants at the border during a time of pet the pandemic. What people where they're making stopping travel from Europe where you're gonna have to nearly get a covert test. They're on the verge of implementing a mandate that everybody gets a covert. That's before you get on a plane domestically. However, they're letting anybody that wants to come over the border. And then and then they just released them catch and release his back. Does that make sense? It doesn't make any sense. I know Joe Biden is getting some back. Last for that, but only from people who are rational people like you and I and Fox News and news, Max, But I mean, take any rational person. Put your politics aside. And a lot of you folks out there that are biting supporters are scared to death. You're playing the game. You're not that you're stupid, but you may be ignorant or you just playing the game when it comes to the masks, and you're terrified, And I'm not gonna bring five people from my house. And then you're OK. You're OK with this president, allowing folks to come over over the border. They stopped. How does that make sense? Stop building a wall. That was already paid for and that was proven to be effective. Now that will break you. Now They're letting them all come in. They're actually putting illegal immigrants up in the high rise hotel in San Diego before they release them. I mean, it makes no sense. There's no testing protocol covert testing protocol for these people. They're going to send him into the interior of the country while everybody else is locked down and Let you guy you can dine out on Valentine's Day. Why Valentine's Day? I don't know, because I pick Valentine's Day. And yet Joe Biden is allowing these people coming from places with high covert rates. These these impoverished countries anyway. Kirsten Fisher from Fox News. Axed Jen Psaki a question about it. This is a tough, tough question. This is why they want the Senate trouble. Listen to this US Customs and Border protection is.

The story is part of a collaboration between national native news. In the mountain west news bureau native american tribes praised the biden administration this week.

The guardian reported the standing rock sioux tribe and the nonprofit earthjustice urged biden in a video to shutdown dapple biden has not made statements on that pipeline but last year when she was a senator vice president kamala harris signed in a mikus brief calling on a judge to shut it down while an environmental impact study was done.

Climate Activists Want Biden To Bar Appointees With Fossil Fuel Ties
"Joe biden has an ambitious climate plan and there are a lot of people with government experience. Who could help implement that plan. But some of them have ties to fossil fuel industries and that is a problem for climate change activists. Npr's jeopardy reports in philadelphia recently. A group of young climate activists marched to biden's campaign headquarters. The sunrise movement often pressures democrats. Back the green new deal but instead biden offered his own climate plan for a slower transition away from coal oil and gas. He has not committed to barring people with fossil fuel ties from his administration. Lauren martinez was sunrise. Thinks he should biden ran on the most progressive climate agenda in us history and one on it. So it's incumbent upon him to take that seriously and put forward people who are accountable to the people that elected him to office the head of the natural resources defense council and former epa administrator gina mccarthy says she understands why young activists want to ban on appointees connected to fossil fuels especially after trump. Put them in key posts including andrew wheeler a former coal industry lobbyist. I mean that's who has been running the environmental protection agency and has gotten us nowhere fast. It's backed us up. It hasn't supported a growing clean energy economy. But here's a problem with a fossil fuel will litmus test biden won't govern alone the us senate could remain under republican leadership that means passing legislation would require compromise and bradbury is ceo of the american exploration and production council. Americans voted for divided government. As part of that you know. I think they voted for moderation. And i think they voted for commonsense. Bradberry sees a future for fossil fuels even under biden's ambitious plan for net zero carbon emissions by twenty fifty worried about climate. Change say there are issues. Republicans and democrats likely can agree on heather. Reams was citizens for responsible. Energy solutions suggests activist focus on things like economic stimulus that boost clean energy. They should looking at the bigger policies and getting to what's possible with getting climate action done today rather than arguing about the position on one's resume among the names on the biden transition team a few have limited ties to fossil fuel but more are from environmental groups. Jody freeman served as councillor for energy and climate change on the obama white house now freeman is at harvard law school and says she sees a trend in the people selected so far i think the clear messages vitality one good people in place wrestling start who have experienced any days and not wasting any time. Freeman is a good example of those who could be excluded. If a biden administration rejects people connected to fossil fuel companies. She sits on the board of oil company conaco phillips but she also led obama's effort to double car fuel efficiency standards. She's also an expert on using presidential powers to address climate change. That's knowledge that likely will be necessary if both parties can't agree on new climate legislation when biden his sworn in next year. Jeff brady npr news.
Joe Biden's Options To Combat Climate Change
"President-elect biden says contending with the pandemic will be his priority when he takes office in january but another global crisis is before the world climate change and experts say time is running out gene mccarthy served as administrator of the environmental protection agency under president obama and join just now. Thanks so much for being with us. Thank you scott. It's great to be here assuming Swimming there's going to be divided power in washington. What critical climate policies. Do you believe. President biden should use executive authority to to get through first of all. I think he's already made it clear that he's going to re enter the paris accord right away and of course then you have opportunities to establish standards like standards for power plant emissions these looking for clean energy in this country by twenty thirty five so that needs to get moving and we can you know basically at my beloved epa. Make sure that people are in place that cam more about the public than they do themselves and that can can once again do their job to protect the american people. Progressive groups have called for a transition an administration that doesn't include any people with connections to the fossil fuel industry. Does that strike you as wise or does it risk losing some talented people who know how to make and government run you know. I think that it's it's very understandable. That people are worried that they do everything possible not to allow the kind of of appointments that president trump put into place which was all fossil fuel people. And it's gotten us nowhere fast. It even missed the boat on jobs because clean energy was was moving forward at over three times the pace of the overall economy in terms of job growth else but if at one point let's say representative fossil fuel industry of them company or later far as you're concerned that would be enough to take them out of consideration. No i don't think i need to hold. The hod infest line like that scott. I think there are many lawyers. That would be solid in those positions. But i clearly trust the judgment of joe biden and his administration to have the best people in place are working at the best interest of the country Prenton biden says of course it to rejoin the paris agreement on on day. One in office that the. Us didn't meet promises it had already. How would how would it do it now. I feel very strongly that even though there has been a lack of effort on the issue of climate change at the federal level that we have you know twenty nine states that have clean energy standards. We have three hundred plus cities that have taken the pledge to meet the climate accord clean energy still remains the growth opportunity for us Given the size of the greenhouse gas emissions we omit we certainly have a an obligation to jump back in with both feet with a little bit of deference to all our co Who have been holding the ford candidates to deny or discount. Climate change won millions of votes in this last election. How does a president biden proposed to get through an ambitious program with that kind of congress. You know. I think what i would suggest. Is that people want jobs. People want fairness people. Want to be healthy and i think the more we can show the value of clean energy even in your pocket books then. People will be much less afraid to recognize that climate change is happening and they'll start demanding that folks on the hill start acting like they do which is to face reality and to make the kind of change we need. They don't have to be coded as climate change. Initiatives they can be initiatives that grow jobs and grow the economy gina mccarthy former administrator of the epa now ceo of the natural resources defense council.

Why some labor unions are talking about climate change
"Labor unions work on many different issues that affect their members from trade and immigration to civil rights in public health. Michael younger radio. Executive director of the labor network for sustainability says. Many unions are starting to talk about climate change. There are unions that are becoming very active in getting involved in climate action. For example the board of the two million member service employees international union has endorsed the green new deal in part because many of its members live in communities that are disproportionately harmed by wildfires hurricanes and other climate related disasters but guerrero says other unions represent workers who worry about how climate policies will affect their jobs for example those in the fossil fuel industry are often concerned about the transition to clean energy. What happens to workers and communities that are gonna lose their industries that they've been dependent on for so long. And how do we make sure that. There's a social safety net. How do we make sure that this quality work on the other end of that transition. So guerrero says it's important that climate policies protects the earth and protect workers. So no one is left behind.
Trump and Biden debate their climate and environmental policies
"A lot at Thursday's debate. There was this telling exchange about climate change. Would you close the have a transition from their own industry? Yes. It is a big statement, President Trump again boosted the fossil fuel industries contributing to global warming. Joe Biden is campaigning on a plan for Net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. NPR's Jeff Brady has more on his $2 trillion proposal. Joe Biden's climate plan is ambitious for an economy is big and complex as the United States, but even those connected to fossil fuel industry say it may be doable. Scott Siegal with the energy focused law firm. Bracewell says the plan is pragmatic and includes both regulations and incentives for the growing list of companies focused on using cleaner energy in the future. One thing that makes Biden's approach somewhat comfortable is that you can sketch out that linear commitment to additional resource is to achieve these objectives, which I think most people in business, believe me. Are going to be the future anyway. The country has one example of meeting an ambitious climate goal. The Obama administration's clean power plan aimed to cut emissions from power plants, about a third by 2030. Even though court challenges stopped the plan from going into effect, the country is ahead of schedule. David Doniger is with NRDC Action Fund, The political arm of the natural resource is defense counsel. The power sector is already undergoing changes that have reduced their emissions by more than 30% 10 years ahead of the target that the Obama administration thought was aggressive. In 2015, a big part of that was the collapse of the coal industry. Coal fired power plants continue to go out of business, replaced with cheaper natural gas and renewable energy. Still, the bite and climate plan faces significant hurdles. It relies on technologies that haven't been developed or may not be commercially viable. That's why the plan includes $400 billion over a decade for research. With the economic hit from the Corona virus pandemic. Biden's campaign updated the plan this summer. It includes billions of dollars to hire people for things like plugging abandoned mines and building electric vehicle charging stations. Steph Feldman, with the bite and campaign says the plan also focuses on environmental justice. 40% of the benefit of those investments go to community, the color and low income communities that have been disproportionately harmed by pollution and the effects of climate change. This is especially important to the most vocal climate change activists. While Biden has distanced himself from the green new deal, it is popular, especially with the left wing of his party. Jenny Marino, Zimmer with 3 50 actions as this's thie strongest plan yet from a Democratic presidential nominee, the Biden campaign has committed to doing some really great things like ending leasing of fossil fuels on public lands. We'd like to see them go further and create a true phase out for the entire fossil fuel mystery over Of course of the next decade. Biden's plan has a longer timeline for a transition and includes a role for fossil fuels with offsets and carbon capture. Amy Myers Jaffe manages the climate policy Labatt Tufts University and says overall, this is a credible plan for addressing climate change. The Biden campaign has listed the right things. But the difference between listing things and implementing those things is a big difference. If Biden is elected, he'll likely need a Democratic Congress willing to pass laws and allocate money

"fuel industries" Discussed on News Radio 920 AM
"The White House. You've done none of these things, and you're asking the American people to believe all of a sudden now you're going to start working on their behalf. I thought he did an outstanding job Boxing Joe Biden into a corner in which show Biden said, No, I'm actually four fracking and then minutes later said No. We're going to phase out the oil industry, which includes fracking. It was phenomenal to whites. The president work his magic out there and get Joe Biden on all of the wrong sided positions He's been on for so long in this country and to expose the Democrat Party for being ah, folks that just talk about Issue's forever and never actually get anything done. I thought the president didn't outstanding job tonight. You've seen the polling. I'm sure you've heard from some of the down ballot candidates what they're seeing. How important was this debate? Did you feel for the Trump campaign to gain some Momenta MBE going into this? Final stretch with with now less than 12 days left to go. Well, we have momenta. My mean, we're doing really well in the state who are ahead on a lot of them were gonna will hold the states we had before, even though the president fundamentally changed the map. And and picked up states Democrats never. Ah, never relinquished for decades, the president able to do it, but this absolutely give something to those undecideds out there to point to and say, Wait a minute. The president's right. He will be rebuilt this economy once he'll do it again. Joe Biden is already talking about shutting down the country again. He made that point. Tonight as well. He talked about mandating mask, which is unconstitutional and his own party didn't even do it. His own governors don't even do it of the Democrat Party. So I mean, the president did a really good job making the case to the American people. The guy tow his left. Joe Biden has done nothing for you. In 47 years, I've Dunmore to improve the lives of all Americans in 47 months. I think the American people saw tonight the difference between an outsider and ah, leader, someone who's taking the bull by the horns and and got his trade deals. No one thought possible and peace deals. No one thought possible and rebuilt our military and destroyed Isis. Those air things this president has done. Joe Biden can't point to any of those things. He was unable to do it tonight and yet again, Ah, career politician saying, Look at all the things I'm going to do. Nothing he was able actually to do when he had the chance. I'm joined by National press Secretary for Donald J. Trump for president Hogan Gidley here on I heard radio. If there's one part of tonight's debate that the campaign Khun Turn around, and I just asked this question to the Democratic strategist that I had on if there's one part of this debate one moment that your campaign Khun turn around Into an ad in the next 24 hours, whether it's something that the president said or something that Joe Biden said, What do you think that would be? The fossil fuel industry. We can face it out, Joe Biden literally said on debate stage. Goodbye, 2 10.5 million energy jobs in this country. Goodbye. The hundreds of thousands of jobs in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota, Texas. Goodbye to all of that entire industry. You can't run a country on gumdrops. Unicorns and rainbows. Look at California who does a lot of of green energy. They're having rolling blackouts all of the time, if not ready, because it's not sustainable. It doesn't mean we shouldn't use it. But the fact is, you have to rely on the fossil fuel industry and one of the first thing that hit me when he said that was Dear Pennsylvania, please believe Joe Biden when he says he's going to ban fracking. He's said it many times. And on that debate stage tonight, the president got him to admit he was going to get rid of the oil and gas industry. It was absolutely amazing. I could turn that to add in two seconds. You heard the criticisms of the president after the first debate. What took place all the interruptions and all of that. How important was it for him, too? Bring forth a bit of a different style in this final presidential debate. Well, The president knows his audience. He knows what to do any setting, whether it's a massive rally, whether it's a town hall with its a one on one debate, and look, I understand there may be people listening to this. To this radio station, which, by the way that you know, they may not want admit it, Okay, But let's be fair. Maybe a few of them out there may not like everything the president tweets may not like everything he says may not like his style. But some of the things I mentioned before that style got his peace deals in the Middle East made the world safer. That style got US trade deals that actually benefited American workers that Joe Biden couldn't do. That style brought our hostages back home in record numbers. It defeated Isis and cut taxes. It created record high employment for African American, Asian Americans, Hispanic Americans and women. Joe Biden has nothing to 0.2 of any level of success on behalf of the American people. In fact, the things he did crushed the American middle class killed our jobs destroyed American companies, and he's talking about shutting down the country again. He'd do it all over. So the fact is the president dealt with results. The president is an outsider's not going to play these political games. I need to get things done quickly for the American people. Joe Biden is still talking about the same thing he wants to do to a man. Oka and for America that he was talking about half of a century ago. So I understand people don't like the.

"And starting with what we can do on day one around public lands, right? Okay, So look, she said Joe Biden will not ban All right. So maybe it wasn't a direct lie, but She's giving herself all this wiggle room that she doesn't deserve. I believe that Joe Biden will wipe out the fossil fuel industry. In this country be if he has to. All right, Cortez, and on the other is a global warming people be all over him. All right. The next one is ah! The law and order, and she got hurt on this one. But not for what you think. I mean, Kamala Harris is soft on Lauren owner even though at one time she was Fairly aggressive prosecutor in California. That's true. All right, but I should not. And I'll prove that awhile, But you used this law and order issue very, very important. All right. She used it in a very interesting way. Go I will not sit here and be electric by the vice president. On what it means to enforce the laws of our country and again, I will not be lectured. By the vice president. On our record. Of what we have done in terms of law enforcement and keeping our communities safe. No, I will not be lectured. Had dare you lecture me? How dare you question my record. See So you couple lack With the split screen arrogance on the facial, and that's like Do you really want to have lunch with this woman? Now full disclosure. I don't like her. I don't know her. I've never met her. But after what you did to Brett Kavanaugh I couldn't possibly like her. She tried to destroy him and his family. His wife and two daughters. Nothing. You're nothing. Okay? And then She said she believed the woman who accused your Biden Of doing a very bad thing. Into that. Well, I believe that one. But as soon as Biden picture for Phoebe, I didn't believe anymore. So to me, and I evaluate people on a number of levels. But if you are a phony I'm not going to like you. I like genuine people, real people. All right. That woman. Never So you should know that.

Climate science denier appointed to top position at NOAA
"We're also following the controversy over a client climate science denier who's reportedly appointed to a top climate position in the US. Government C. N. N.'s Brian Todd is joining us right now Brian critics say this is a rather dangerous pick for such a key position right? Wolf critics including scientific watchdog groups are pouncing on this appointment tonight of David Lee Gates. Those critics say this appointment is especially troubling now in the middle of the wildfires, the hurricane season and the coronavirus pandemic. As record-setting wildfires. States as America's southern coast continued to get pounded by more frequent hurricanes. President trump continues his assault on climate science it'll start getting cooler. You just watch and the president's time is facing blistering criticism tonight for reportedly appointing a climate science denier to a top position at America's preeminent weather and climate agency David Lee. Gates has been tapped to be a top deputy at the National Oceanic atmospheric administration known as Noah that's according to NPR and the Washington Post. This is a dangerous pick for Noah because it threatens the thousands of Noah scientists who conduct and communicate climate science. Every day La- Gates has a long record of accepting fossil fuel industry funds and spreading disinformation about climate science according to the Post League Gates was once forced out of job as the state of Delaware's. climatologist because of his research paid for in part by the fossil fuel industry, which cast doubt on the science showing that the burning of coal and other fuels were main factors in climate change at a House hearing last year Lee Gates openly disputed the belief of many climate scientists that carbon dioxide is mainly responsible for heating up the planet that has little to do with carbon dioxide as the demise of the little ice age and warring conditions we've had due to increasing son according to NPR in two thousand, seven league gates helped author a paper funded partially by the oil industry that question scientific findings about the role, of climate change. In destroying polar bears habitats, he now heads to an agency Noah which watchdog groups say has a long history of nonpartisan, very credible work in providing the country with weather and climate information. What kind of effect could lead gates have it? Noah. One watchdog group sites the trump administration's appointments a former fossil fuel industry lobbyists to head the EPA and the Department of the Interior and they have retired there we've seen a altered of reunifications on climate change. We've seen climate websites removed. We've seen climate scientists gagged from communicating with the media and the public critics say this is only the latest move in trump's pattern of denying or trying. To suppress science, he announced that the US would withdraw from the Paris climate agreement. He's dismantled regulations on greenhouse gas and auto emissions Noah itself has at least once shown it couldn't withstand trump's pressure when a branch of the National Weather Service corrected trump's erroneous predictions for hurricane Doreen last year, which he later displayed with a sharpie threatening Alabama Noah disavowed that correction we have data wars going on data is being politicized, but one side of the other being weaponized and when you get into that point were the public can't tell who's telling the truth. It undermines democracy undermines a kind of trust that you need to make a democracy work. CNN reached out multiple times to David Lee Gates to know to the Commerce Department which oversees no and to the White House for response to the criticisms of La-. Gates's appointment. We didn't hear back from any of them but one board member of the conservative think tank the heartland institute which downplays the Climate Change Threat which David Gates is a member of told us that La- Gates will provide much-needed science sanity at Noah which this board member claims. has been taken over by quote climate

"Twelve thirty five on the big show Clock Bob. Quitting the big show today. Andy and I have been going over this Latest Corona Virus Food Assistance Program For Agriculture Andy We talked with Secretary of Agriculture. Mike Nag in there was an area that was not covered in here. Well a couple of areas. You talked about One of those though The ethanol industry and we have on the telephone line with us. I believe Andy Mighty shos talking to us today. Good friend of the Big Show. Executive Director. Our renewable fuels association here For some real time reaction to USDA's announcement or I guess money in your case non-announcement announcement What do you? What do you make all of this? Well rightly or wrongly. You know the. Usda for the last several weeks is pretty much and sometimes in fairly blunt language told us that you know they're not going to give any money to the biofuels industry to help get through this time unless Congress directs them to we think that's a mistake Along with a lot of other people around the world or around the country I guess we do think the. Usda has the authority to do this and And should do it. And they have and they have funds there that they could use to do this But if that's going to be their position then we have no choice but to look to Congress and the house Recently passed a provision that would provide some economic assistance to us. And maybe as early as today I don't really WANNA scoop their their news. But I do believe that Senator. Grassley is operatives working on some legislation introduced that would would Provide some support as well. What what type of support do you need money or or how would you like to see that done you know? I mean I'd like to be creative. I like to think outside the box. But we're in a situation where there's just not a lot of options right now. We we expect about forty percent of Iowa's ethanol capacity is production capacity as offline We'll get some new numbers later today. It might be a little bit below that but it's still going to be close to forty There's just no way. The government can hit some magic button and restore that demand in short order. So you're basically left with a choice and that is you're either going to provide a cash infusion to get these facilities through this You Know Covid era of demand destruction or you're going to see a lot of them you know. Run out of money going bankruptcy. Some not have the cash to even by corn to start up when demand does ultimately return so That's what the government has done for many other industries And while it's not necessarily creative they do it because it works and If we want to see these locally owned ethanol plants you know stay locally owned and and survive this that's what Congress or the USDA. He's GonNa have to step up and do well and The ripple effect obviously down through the industry to what we're talking about with corn and soybean prices greatly depends on that industry being viable and being operational and being in place. Yeah if you think about it about nationwide real close to forty percent of corn goes into an ethanol plant Upper thirty percents On a typical year now. Obviously we're making more than ethanol we're making the distillers grains and there's corn oil and there's lots of other products even to that people have learned is pretty important in lots of industries The comes from US but here in Iowa it's close to sixty percent so almost sixty percent of corn first time it's going to be processed. There's going to be an and all and I mean that's just a huge part of our market It's something that we've always been very happy about it. I mean that's the whole reason. Farmers got involved in created the modern dry mill. Ethanol industry was they wanted to add value and create a market for their ever-growing yields of corn. And so we've always prided ourselves on being a good place to take that corn and having to be a win win so you know it's it's hard to see these plants shut down into see farmers you know looking for other options of of where to go with her their corn or of livestock producers. You know not not having access to the steelers grains that they become So accustomed to it's a great affordable source of protein and and we want get these plants going but the bottom line is going to take months to get demand back to levels where you don't have all this capacity offline overhanging the market even now when you get a little bit of good news like plants pop on and then it like more plants come on back online than are required for the little bit of good news and we're just GonNa see that Little Ping Pong Until we get back to normal demands. And that's going to be a long time. And that's that's why we definitely need some help and you know we'd like the USDA to just to do it we think they have the authority and the cash to do it but if it takes congress than we are asking our legislative leaders to to direct the USDA to do it Well we'll keep in touch Will keep up with. What's going on money? I guess I just ask. What do you think be You know what do you think? The chances are something coming through Congress at this point. I think people understand how important this is. I don't think it seems to me that the you know the the bill they pass out house is probably not going to fly through the Senate to say the least but the Senate is going to work on. I do think that they will come together. With another proposal. To help out the economic devastation. From from all these shutdowns and you know the shelter in place orders and everything and and I think there's a good shot. We can get by a biofuels package in there I think what the House did was very similar to to what industry been asking for from the USDA differences here. And there you know is it. Bushels is a gallons but the end of the day. We need a reasonable way to give an appropriate amount of of assistance to these facilities and and to see them through and we either do that. or. I think you're going to see some of them. Go Away so I'm actually optimistic. That while this next package might take a few weeks yet to put together we we can. We can be in the final pack Well like I said. We'll we'll keep in touch with the as we have been As we all get through this and appreciate your time today money as always anytime thank you. Yeah you bet. Monte Shaw Executive Director Iowa Renewable Fuels Association Bob With you continued still out there. And that's one of the things that Secretary Nag mentioned earlier was This direct assistance isn't perfect and certainly renewable fuels have been hit hard during this period. Also yeah exactly and I think Monty Is Talking to as well about another eight package that Still working through Congress. There may be something in there for renewable fuels but Secretary Nag pointed that out earlier force. Hey Andy let's move on the three big things you need to know brought to you by your Iowa. Soybean farmers planting progress in fact corn planning basically is complete here in the state of Iowa before Memorial Day with a big number showing up with. Usda NASA their weekly report ninety six percent to the crop in the ground sixty three percent of it has emerged soybeans Coming along nicely as well. Crop moved to eighty six percent planted almost nearly a month ahead of last year and three weeks ahead of average cares with the. Usda NASU says about a quarter Dean are off the ground nationally eighty percent complete planning wise fifty three percent Soybean wise eighty percent on corn. And you can see all of the numbers out on the big show. Website seeing an increased price of gasoline and therefore that start to be good because it indicates increasing demand six and a half cents higher this past week Patrick. Dehaan of gas buddy says the increase is attributed to eight nearly five percent increase in gasoline demand. gasoline dancing that quotas long states continue to loosen restrictions. It'll mean more motorists on the road and filling their tank direct assistance details continue to filter out from USDA as to how it is going to assist of food fuel and fiber producers for disruptions in the industry beyond their control caused by covid nineteen in the pandemic. You know this is much needed assistance first and foremost and so. We're appreciative of First Congress Allocating these dollars and then. Usda and the trump administration. You know getting these pushed out and in doing so by the end of May which is what they said they do. So high was secretary of Agriculture. Mike Nagging daily addressed to the food and fiber industry.

"Well I mentioned we have some boots on the ground eyeballs out in the field and that is Ben Hollings head is with us right now. He is Grandma's with the folks from key coop. Ben Your work in central Iowa. Let's get a quick update on how things are going into the ground? I would imagine we're pretty much done. Corn and soybeans in your neck of the woods. Aren't we YEP I? We're pretty well wrapped up in fact I'd say most the most of the crops around here pretty well coming out of the ground. We're often running in fact We're already starting to make preparations for post emerge spring here when the weather starts to cooperate a little bit. So so it's really. It's been one for the record books. That's for sure now. Now Ben is in the shadow of the farm. Progress show grounds right there in central Iowa and we had some rain here over the last three or four days. Ben So kind of tell me a rain you picked up in different geographies. You serve well right here. This topic aims. You know there was probably about eight tenths of an inch of rain but then if you go to the West a few miles there was a little heavier band where you can see a little bit of ponding and some spots right there. Right as I drive by the farm progress show There was a little heavier band arraigned and And then then if you go a little bit farther to the east the northeast. There was another band aid. So it's your typical spring Body spotty showers. Where if you just happen into end up getting lucky it got a little heavier heavier amounts and but all in all it was very muchly needed rain. Yeah Hey Ben Andy. You mentioned One for the record books For for good reasons this time right. Well I tell you when you can when you can talk to a lot of the older farmers in there like boy man we. We don't know we've ever been done this early with planting and then to have it come out of the ground like this You know. Obviously we could use a little more heat. Now we're getting ready to which root systems in the corn. And it's going to be looking for some nitrogen and it Kinda want some heat here so Hope hopefully that'll become well. That's what I was. GonNa ask you stand wise Emergence Wise. What have you been seen in your scouting? You know the the the corn crop it was it was so dry early that There there are some differences. I don't know what the stand is. We we'd probably had stronger stance that have initially came out of the ground. But at least here on the moines low you know Prairie pothole type soil. We've got ourselves a year where we're not missing any ponds and When When you get when you get that sort of situation whenever acres growing something on on these soils at least boy. There's a lot of potential out there Yeah and Would imagine that's got got some some providing I guess some reasons for hope here despite what else is going on well. It's definitely a whole lot better than it was the a year ago. The situation You know it was just You know about this time a year ago. It think about it we were.

"So as to the world we're talking to Rory Kennedy filmmaker moxie firecracker films and we've got a couple of that dangling chads here for we got a follow up quickly we got another ten minutes and we need to get a couple quick this is the rapid round Rory couple things so we want to pick up on what Kerry was saying before the break we also want to talk about women's issues and how they compare because we did talk about that last segment when you were at brown and what you've been doing for the academy of motion pictures arts and sciences so let's start first with Kerry's question I just don't understand why you have we have all these emergencies in the media is covering these emergencies would seem to be emergencies but why isn't there an uproar about what's going on with the planet about the pollution I and I don't care when people say to me that they don't believe in you know global warming that they don't believe in it because different things can cause a volcano can cause more ashen and damage to the ozone this in this this is okay let's see global warming isn't real let's say that let's say that why are you not looking at all the pollution in the oceans what we're doing to the forest what we're doing to the air okay Y. L. Y. right right yet what what's going yeah I understand and it is it is quite frustrating but I think what's important for all of us to appreciate is that the fossil fuel industry is spending billions and billions of dollars in and and take on that campaign communicating to audiences in very targeted way is that climate change isn't real so they are spreading that message they're spreading it on fox news they're spreading it in social media they are targeting very specific people and they're giving them very targeted misinformation to make them feel that way why are they not calling something different though all right the fires in Australia which are clearly the result of climate change right Murdoch owns the major newspapers in Australia and they were spreading misinformation that the wild fires were started by green groups that were ranting green plants and that those were lighting on fire and were the source of the fires if this is the wire the it's let's maybe we should scrap the name climate change that's the problem because the truth is it's more polluting and destroying you can't argue with that you can't argue that our oceans are being I did I had I had the yeah I do know Sylvia Earle is I I got you got to speak with her hi and we just just what we're doing the overfishing the polluting what we're doing to the oceans were doing ourselves and that's just one thing I mean the in the you know the fires the air that why are we calling it what it is we're we're polluting I think that's a good point to that it is it is pollution then we should remind people of that you know one of the things we're trying to do with the crime that emergency fund which is a fund to support activa and it's supporting people getting into the street causing a little bit of destruction right and the reason for that is if you look at the history of the United States when you're paying real change happen in this country it's always been predated by people getting into the street the civil rights movement the women's rights movement the disability movement the gay rights movement etcetera so the idea is to to really support these activists and to create a fund where we invest the mall and then you can give this fun money and then it goes directly into the hands of you know these young folks who are getting into the streets who are organizing and your really of pressuring our policy makers to do the right thing and and we're seeing real impact in that effort of corporations kind of changing their direction and I think you're saying you know the government changing the current climate states of emergency and really creating a commitment to getting off of our dependence on fossil fuel and our last year Rory you co authored a great Rolling Stone opinion with Red Hot Chili Peppers singer Anthony Kiedis in the Malibu foundations Trevor Nelson on the current climate crisis something that is really worth I read I read it something that explains a lot I think about what you're talking about how do people get involved in the climate emergency find if they wish to do so well thank you for asking I mean the other day as and that the the name suggests it is a fond so we really think of our funders as activists and not all of us can you know have the where with all to get the three thirty get arrested Arjun do the protests but funders can support those people by writing a check to the climate emergency fund so I I I recommend people go to our website and you know we don't do the work ourselves so we're really a past the row so what we do is we do that all of these groups whether it's extinction rebellion or Jane Fonda and Fargo Fridays or groups that are organizing universities to disinvest from fossil fuels is another example we support you know moms who are who are trying to get out the vote on climate change at in in swing states across the country so it's it's kind of a home range and spectrum we are on the front lines of that effort so if you're thinking what can I DO the world's falling apart I don't know what to DO you can go to climbers with the bond and write a check and I can guarantee you will get the hands of the people who are doing amazing work and we're helping them create infrastructure and really listing their ability to spread their message and and to really have impact in a much more meaningful way than they would in the end it since July we started we've raised almost three million dollars please actually into the hands of these activists you're hearing from them and you're seeing them a little bit more because of this money that is allowing them to really elevate their their messaging and their actions you know you've had such a great impact and you can see that it translates into action when people are giving people are more conscious of the issues getting back to your women's studies class round numbers only when you were in college I don't forget anything compare what you were talking about back at brown to what you were dealing with and have been dealing with for instance with academy of motion pictures arts and sciences hi for the Academy Awards getting women involved the the me too movement all of that stuff how does it compare to what you were standing back at brown it's all been informed you know bye bye what I study the brown and what I learned the ground and that the people who influenced me a brown and they have continued to have a lot of relationships ongoing relationships with fellow students who are who are among my best friends still and certainly you know does training that I had there and my analysis and understanding how the world works and has influenced me through today and that you know it's been my great honor to be on the board of the academy of motion pictures arts and sciences and I think being in that position and working with hello board members and the staff and the CEO there don had sent his amazing David will ban who's our president and so many others who are really committed to and really like great case and people who are really committed to inclusivity and making sure that our industry is really working hard to represent the greatest number of people and I think that the idea really you know it is not just to be inclusive but by being inclusive you have you expand the range of voices of perspectives we all understand the world a little bit deeper by exposing ourselves to people who are who are who don't have the same background as we DO you know NASA for example having just made the film is fully committed to that not because they want to you know make some they'll need some numbers of and say where are you the first is because Nassar worked better right when the people who come from all sorts of different perspectives and certainly the ours has always celebrated that and we we are committed to continuing that tradition so it's been it's been exciting to you know support those efforts and be a monster team has really committed that makes lot of sense before we let you go Rory just want to ask you quickly about the Boeing seven thirty seven project with imagine documentaries are teaming up with Brian grazer Ron Howard and of course your husband mark Bailey what can we look for from that project well that is just getting off the ground as they say but I'm very excited about it we're gonna look at what happened inside blowing that lead to these two crashes and tell the story hopefully from the inside out in that I think what will be really as a compelling film that won't get out in the world not for a little while but I'm excited to come back on your show once it's out tell you a little bit more about it at that point we'd love to hear about it it was a fascinating subject and something that I think is important moving forward yes and we love to have you in the studio be fantastic thank you we I really appreciate thanks for the timer that's Rory Kennedy she tweets at Rory

And you still don't know why he laughed all the way to the neck flicks Bank. Now, again, I don't wanna lose the main point I made today you've all heard this about Omar Nancy stripped her name out of the anti semitism. Anti hate Bill. That's passed which is of no value whatsoever. They're trying to smear white people, by the way, they're trying to turn it around white people who are simply Christians and support the bible in America and the constitution. That's what Pelosi specializes in denied deny deny delay delay delay smear smear smear the tactics of the radical Stalinist left. So what did I say to you today this issue of dual loyalty? Who was it? I applied to it was I applied by Pelosi and company Maxine Waters that big mouth foaming maniac and the others who have accused Trump of loyalty to Russia. That means a loyalty. Now, those who support the only democracy in the Middle East in congress or amongst the American population, or even amongst a pack are now suddenly pointed as being having dual loyalty, this is the new Democratic Party. I would say they are McCarthy like, but that would be a disgrace to the name of McCarthy because he was the furthest thing from a fast fascist you could ever imagine. He was a war hero a real tailgunner in World War Two. And in fact, the Democrats have that time smeared him for saying the truths about the communists who would infiltrated Hollywood the media. And of course, congress it self he was broken by congress smeared by the very same forces that are trying to smear Trump as having dual loyalty to Russia. The very same tactic that they apply to McCarthy. They're applying to Trump that means to you as well the voter of Trump voter for Trump. And of course, they destroyed McCarthy. No one could take that much hatred. And then lo and behold, many years later in the nineteen nineties a book came out called a vanilla papers via. No n look it up. These were secret transmissions of the KGB that were released after the wall fell and they confirmed by name they named the names of all those with true dual loyalty. In fact, they were spies and working for Russia in Hollywood screenwriters actors directors in the media in universities, and of course, in government itself. I've given you a capsule.
