"It's merriam Webster's word of the day for June eleventh. Today's word is chasing spelled. C. H. A. S. T E N Chason is a verb that means to correct by punishment or suffering to discipline or purify. It can also mean to prune something such as a work or style of art of excess pretense or falsity to refine Jason can also mean to cause to be more humble or restrained to subdue. Here's the word used in a sentence. He was very arrogant as a younger man, but he has been sufficiently chastened by life's hardships. And is now more cognizant of his own failings and weaknesses. If you say you would castigate or chastise someone in order to chase in them. You demonstrate a good knowledge of the origin of the word, Chason, all three verbs derived from the Latin verb Casteel, Garay, meaning to punish cast, Garay combines the Latin word, Casto's, which means pure and is the source of the English word chased with the verb aga- array, meaning to lead or to drive castigate, chastise, and Chason share the sense of to subject to severe and often physical punishment. But all three verbs are now likely to refer to a verbal dressing down as to physical lesson Chason, which arrived in English via the angle, French word chace. Jay can also mean to prune of excess pretense or falsity. This led to the more general sense of to make more subdued, although the humility can be imposed by a humiliating situation as easily.

A VerySpatial Podcast - EarthDay 2020
"Hello and welcome to a very special podcast bird doing a little livestream for Earth Day. Everybody playing with the three way video stream here after some technical funds we gotta going but we just wanted to have a chance to to get on and chat a little bit. Because it's the fiftieth anniversary of birthday and we just didn't want to miss it so You know it's not the best of circumstances in the world right now but I'll say is that a long standing event and so it was kind of looking over at her stay dot com as I look towards my my computer monitor here to see kind of what they've gone on that got actually Some virtual things going on today so you can actually tune in live. They've been going on. There's somebody talking right now But there are in the middle of their discussion. So I'm not sure what there is A. There's also some other events that you can kick -ticipant hand and you can check out some of the things that are a part of the Earth Day movement all around So that might be stop for earth. Day Tony Tony if you haven't been there yet which is a Earth Day. Outta work as Ram as we are well as we are winding down the day. So what have you been doing today? Bar I've been doing a lot because you know I work in the area. I was thinking about doing Earth Day stuff and been doing it a long time and on my fingers. I could list like more than fifty organizations. I know that are doing things. We had a whole celebration today. We're doing or days everyday. My geography students don't normally get a chance in the spring to do geography awareness. Week so I combine the two together and we're doing. Gis Day geography. Where he this week with an Earth Day theme And as a university we did a Lib Guide which is something I just found out about which is where you work with libraries to basically put all your resources up online and people can share it worldwide we made a repository of Earth Day events going on around the world and in our state and then we did a lot of citizen. Science listing because also citizen science weeks citizen science month. I've seen a lot of Australia for their citizens science because they're doing a lot of events but they also have a stamp to celebrate the people in their country that have contributed contributed to it. And then I was going through the list of other events because it is citizen science month on month in our state. We've got a box turtle count going on where you can go out in your yard now and you might not be able to go far. Be Can do a box turtle count. It's also the dark dark skies so with NASA. It's the international dark sky week to go out tonight and a bunch of states are competing countries are competing to go out and make their observations It's rails to trails week which I found really fit with urban geography the switching over from rails to trails and what that means and it's national volunteer week which goes along with citizen science and with geography and people doing crowdsourcing being asked to contribute. It is National Library Week. Which goes along again with all the geography in the books. In which books would you select? I actually will. I'd have to reach behind me but I'm donating a book to our library from someone that we interviewed here. It is Linda Garay Matthias and we talked to her geospatial team and so I wanted to do that because she always talked about how. We were all hummingbirds. You just do what you can what you can just adds up and I was thinking about the people that I've met met judge potter. He is considered the father of the environmental courts and we invited them to our state to try to figure out. Could we do that here? And it turned out. We couldn't but he came many times and what he talked about in terms was basically and he didn't realize it at the time with mapping was at a lot of things fall through the cracks. When you're talking about the small things with public health like the elderly that are having problems fixing up their houses or someone. That's selling over. And over bad baby food but the community notices. And if they're mapping it if they are tracking it then that helps to change things but that that's what I was you know thinking about and then Charles Moore. Who does the Great Pacific Garbage Patch going out there? In the fact that it was unknown when Earth Day was started but it was probably starting to accumulate at the time but now we know about it and we can do something about it so I guess what I'm saying is it amazed me all the little things that over time the little bits add up to big things an absolutely received that not in the best circumstances obviously With all of US hopefully Doing what we can to stay at home and things like that but you know images that are getting out there of how the environment is changing just in the few weeks and in some cases a couple of months where our behaviors have changed right. Were not as much moving around us. He's going on Whether it's satellite imagery or photographs footage that people have been taking it. You see the difference right in our impact on the environment in the earth. A just in that amount of time that you know we've all had to make strategic change to try to contain this this terrible pandemic but but I think that's a direct visual representation of really how we do impact the world this amazing to think we can see that now but they couldn't see that back then when this was going on at other times you imagine if they could have seen you know how it affected things changed in just the images of streets that are empty and stuff going on Jon. Snow would have had a lot different. You know experience if he could have viewed things that's true we'll sue stole my thing so I guess that's about it. It's kind of a wrap up for Earth Day. Two Thousand Twenty again. We're kind of coming at the end of the day so If you are curious as to what happened and I want to be able to get access to some of the recorded media had replaces dorte Earth Day dot org of course go ahead and start planning for next year whether we're talking about Earth Science Week in the fall geography awareness. Week a three weeks later and of course Earth Day next year for the fifty first and fifty first anniversary. I'm going to stop trying to talk. A- jump between the fiftieth and then the fifty first you might see a future movement that you know comes into play everyone's experiencing something together. I'm really hopeful that you know even though everybody's really worried about the economy right now that people do take into account what's been going on environmentally both in terms of animals. Kinda wandering Further afield being able to see things remote-sensing Hopefully people will be taking those into account as we do get things going again absolutely so so hopefully everyone out. There is doing well and You know we're doing what we need to now to make sure that we can all come out of this in and get a chance to go further field again so happier every day. Right every day yes yep.

I think i'm at dictionary pod on twitter and instagram. If you care to check those out. I post silly pictures. There's a patriot. If you want to donate to that just subscribe and stuff all the good things so our first word is a fissile bowl. Second word t. h. i. s. l. e. this is a noun from eighteen sixty three a deal. Eurasian thistle with purplish flower heads and prickly leaves. That is naturalized as a weed in the us. And the scientific name is cerium. votto garay So maybe we can find a picture of that one. See what this purplish head looks like next. We have bull tongue two words noun from eighteen. Thirty one a wide blade attached to a cultivator or plough to stir the soil kill weeds or mark. Furrows next rehab. It's probably they probably put that on the front of a bulldozer or something similarly something. That does that sort of thing next. We have bull whip one word noun from eighteen fifty to a rawhide whip with a very long plaited lash So this is you know a whip that makes the loud noise and the long plaited lash. I think that's the thing at end. There's a few little pieces that come out You know instead of instead of coming to a point there's a few a few pieces at the end fun fact. This is some trivia. You can test your friends and family with What is the the. I think it's the first man made thing that breaks the that has that broke the sound barrier and it is actually the whip because that's that's where the sound comes from the whip. Go is going so fast. It literally breaks the sound barrier And that's where you get that that whip sound at the end next. We have bully b. u. l. l. y. I form noun from fifteen thirty. Eight one is archaic. so one a synonym is. I have visit very archaic. Because i've never heard anybody call somebody there sweetheart Their bully one be a fine chap You're such a bully to a a blustering browbeating person especially one habitually cruel to others who are weaker. Yeah we could talk about that for a long time but believes are a problem Yeah to be. Synonym is not what i expected but a- actually does make sense when you think about it. It's the word pimp For those of you who know what that is number a hired ruffians in so this is probably from the middle dutch boil which means lover very different from the way that we think about this word nowadays akin to the middle lowered jackson bull which also means lover So yeah that's that's where this sweetheart one comes in. That's that makes sense. But how did it go from that to what we think of bully. Now which is this blustering brow beating person who's cruel to others who are weaker but we are going to move onto the second form of bully. This is an adjective from sixteen. O nine number one synonym is excellent and this is often used in interjections expressions. As in bully for you. I have heard this used. I don't think i really understood. It meant exactly. Because i didn't i didn't understand that it meant excellent. I thought it was almost a sarcastic. Phrase could still be sarcastic but But yeah bully for you. Good for you. I'm so happy for you. Number two resembling or characteristic of a bully now we have the third form of bully verb from sixteen ninety three. I is transitive one. To treat abusively to to effect by means of force or coercion next is in transitive to use browbeating language or behavior and a synonym is bluster. We must have read brow beating here before. But i don't really remember exactly what it said. But you know if you know as i think you can sort of get the idea. Let's see and then we have another synonym. It is the word intimidate next. We have the fourth form of bully. This is a noun from seventeen. Fifty three pickled can usually corned beef. So usually it's corned beef and it is pickled or and This is from the french booth would bully which means boiled beef. So they call it. Bully next is bullyboy one word noun from nineteen o nine a swaggering bully so not only are they a bully but they are swaggering. They are so pompous and they are called a bully boy. I don't think people use this anymore next. We have one. That is a very political especially these days. as you are probably very well aware I record these early. So i have no idea what has happened on election day Because this is airing on november fourteenth But let's see what bully pulpit says it is a noun from nineteen seventy six a prominent public position as a political office that provides an opportunity for expounding one's views also such an opportunity So a public position where they are political person. Who's in a position where there are able to Give out how they view things. I still not entirely sure i need. I need a little bit more context. I think I guess maybe what it's saying is that it's the person who can be a. I don't know. I really don't understand moving on to bully rag Could also be bali. Rag this is a verb from seventeen. Ninety it's just transitive one to intimidate by bullying. You are bully ragging or bali. Ragging and number two to vex by teasing synonym is badger. Next we have bull rush it could be with one l. or it could be with two l's but it is one word noun from the fifteenth century any of several large rushes or senses growing in wetlands as a any genus of annual or perennial szeged that bear solitary or much clustered spike applets containing perfect flowers with a period of six bristles. If you don't know your plant words you don't know what i just said and be is british either of two cattails and it gives the scientific names which i will give to you at the end and then see we just have these synonym papyrus not the font papyrus the plant papyrus so the genus names. The genera from a are skirts and scopus lucas. Although i guess that would be the scientific name And then let's see the scientific names for be which british which are the two cattails. They are tapeh letter full. Iaea antifeyev august to fully are. it's an angus angusta fully. Are that's fun next. We have bulwark b. u. l. w. a. r. k. This is the first form. It is a noun from the fifteenth century. One a a solid wall like structure raised for defence and a synonym is rampart. Which i think was the name of an old video game. And old arcade game which was fun. when be synonyms are breakwater and seawall number two a strong support or protection number three the side of a ship above the upper deck and that is usually used in plural. So bulwarks let's see at malla. She says this is from middle dutch. Bulwark from bowl. Which means tree trunk from work. Which means work. So you gotta put that tree trunk to work Now we have this second form of bulwark. this is a transitive. Verb from the fifteenth century to fortify or safeguard with a bulwark. Next is our last word of this episode. it is also the first word of the next episode We are going to be reading forms one through four in this one so the first word. The first form of this word is bum. They're all bomb be. Um it a noun from the fourteenth century and this is a synonym for the word buttocks. Yeah you've heard that before. Get your bum in the seat. Next is the second form of bum. This is an adjective from eighteen. Fifty nine one a of poor quality or nature as in bum advice one be not valid or deserved as in a bum check one see not pleasant or enjoyable as in a bum trip did bad when he got a bum trip number two affected or disabled by damage or injury. Like if you hurt your leg then you got a bum leg. I kind of have a bump foot. Not not terribly i can still use it in. Walk on it and stuff but it's a little bummy now. We have the third form of bum. It is a verb from eighteen. Sixty three i is transitive number. One synonym is loaf l. a. f. like. I'm just loafing about on my couch. I'm bumming oh that sounds really great right now number two to spend time unemployed and often wandering and this is used often used with the word around bum around also kind of sounds great. I just wanna bum around. Just hang out. Now we have the transitive definition to obtain by asking or begging and a synonym is a word i have not seen before it is cabbage c. a. d. g. e. as in a cigarette Let's see this is probably a back formation of the word. Bummer which we will be getting to later and then finally we have the fourth form of bum. This is a noun from eighteen. Sixty four Also probably a short form of the word. Bummer one a one who sponges off others and avoids work Not literally sponge off. People like spongebob. That's not what this means. It's just like your like you're sponge. You're soaking stuff up your your taking stuff away like you're bumming the cigarette your bumming the food And you just don't work so much One be one who performs a function poorly as in called the empire of bum. One c one whose time is devoted to recreational activity as in a beach bum. Also as in ski bums number two synonyms our vagrant and tramp and then We have a phrase on the bum and that means with no settled residence or means of support so we had bull thistle bull tongue. Bull whip bully Bullyboy bully pulpit. Bully rag bowl rush. Bulwark and bum. I am going gonna pick bully as the word of the episode. Not because i like it It's because i have the opposite feelings about it. I don't like bullies There has been bullies have always caused problems In recent years with the internet there's been a huge amount of talk about cyber bullying and things like that and people especially kids have literally died Committed suicide because of what people have done by bullying and that is unconscionable that is terrible. I mean they're really just aren't words to describe how bad that is I you know to get a little political. Our president is very much a bully. I mean that's that's kind of a fact And it's bullies are just bad. I am not ever very good speaking off the cuff about things like this but Yeah i feel really strongly about this so if you see somebody bullying somebody else in school or at work or one st whatever You know maybe try and help and see what you can do. I am very proud of my niece because years ago when she was pretty young. I mean she's still already young She she stood up to a bully. Who was being mean to one of her classmates And that was really really awesome to hear so please don't be a bully try and stop bullies and also Take it a step further. See what you can do to change. The bullies mind to teach them Maybe the error of their ways and get them to realize You know because they're probably hurting inside. And they're taking their anger out in a very bad way So if you can make it turn it into a constructive situation. So on that note. We're going to end this episode. There thank you very much for listening. And until next time this is spencer dispensing information goodbye.

"Merriam Webster's were day June third. Today's Word is compunction spelled C. O. M.. P. U. N. C. T. I.. O. N. compunction is a noun that means anxiety arising from awareness of guilt. It can also mean distress mind over an anticipated action or results, or a twinge of misgiving a scruple. Here's the word used in an editorial from the Chicago Tribune. A big reason why Illinois is population continues to plummet. Is that college age youth feel no compunction at all about heading out of state for college. An old proverb says a guilty conscience needs no accuser, and it's true that the sting of a guilty conscience or a conscience that is provoked by the contemplation of doing something wrong can prick very hard indeed. The sudden guilty pickings of compunction are reflected in the word's etymological history. Compunction comes via the anglo-french compunction and the Middle English word that derived from it from the Latin word, complete array, which means to prick and or to sting. Composed array in turn derives from Poon Garay, meaning to prick, which is the ancestor of some other prickly words in English such as puncture, and even the word point.

With your money briefing, im chair Whalen at the Wall Street Journal in New York, it's tax time. And that means many of us are doing our own taxes or gathering up receipts to bring to the accountant. It's also the first year the new tax law takes effect in our tax returns. We've got some key points of the law to watch out for in a moment. First money and market stories. You should know legislation introduced on Capitol Hill would lessen the nasty surprise of hidden fees and your cable TV Ville if becomes law. Cable companies will be forced to be more clear in their billing among other things alert a consumer of any price increase no later than twenty one days before it goes into effect that would give the consumer some time to cancel their service or potentially switch to another cable provider. The idea behind the laws to put an end to often unexpected price hikes that come when promotional offers end. And the government has figured out that the average American adult works twenty eight hours per week spends about sixty hours per week sleeping and eighteen. Hours watching TV, and they don't know that data because of spying or hacking into our phones, they know because they asked the Labor Department's American time use survey measures the amount of time people spend doing various activities such as paid work childcare, volunteering and socializing, but one thousand diaries a routinely sent to random citizens asking what they do in one day turns out people in the midwest were twenty minutes longer each week, the northeasterners and those in the west work about an hour per week less than Midwesterners and on the south people watch the most TV one and a half hours per week more than westerners who watched the least amount of TV of any region in the country. Do you feel that that's the long arm of the new tax law? That's changing up numbers and people's tax returns, as it takes effect, Wall Street Journal tax reporter, Laura Saunders is here with key things to know about the tax law, including an e book from the Wall Street Journal that puts everything in simple terms. So Laura we'll get to the book and just a moment. But we've been hearing about the tax law seemingly for a few years. And now it's impacting tax returns. That's exactly right. The most provisions of the biggest overhaul in three decades. It was they were passed in December of two thousand seventeen but they took effect January first twenty eighteen and now people are filing their first returns under the new law and probably the biggest impact we've seen so far this tax season is lower refunds in many cases. It's confused and angered some people they're they're posting on social media. It's even angered some politicians, but you say don't confuse a lower refund with higher taxes. The treasury officials decided. Last year that they wanted to put the tax cuts from the law because sixty five percent of filers got tax cuts. They wanted to get that money back into the economy and circulating. So they changed automatically changed withholding. That's paycheck withholding pinched, and withholding the money. You have taken out weekly, and they moved it down. And the result was not always precise change that they made it just they just changed it for everybody. So the result is at some people are seeing lower refunds than they expected. Or even they owe balance do because they didn't check their withholding last year, and the money they might have gotten as a refund or a portion of the actually got back through the paychecks throughout the year. That's exactly right. But sometimes people don't notice an extra twenty or thirty dollars per paycheck. But they notice when there's a thousand dollars missing from the refund at the end of the year exactly the Romay taxpayers that are worried about the new ten thousand dollar write offs for state and local taxes. But that worry might be unnecessary. Well, it is for many people many people who live in high tax states who were making between two hundred thousand and five hundred thousand in prior years won't have too much trouble with the limit on state and local tax deductions. That's a ten thousand dollar cap because they were already losing most of those deductions because they were subject to the dreaded alternative minimum tax. So things may not be as debt die or as bad as they expect. They will and the alternative minimum tax the EMT has not gone away altogether. But in many cases, it's been scaled back. Yes, it's been scaled back its gonna hit very few people. I think maybe just very small percentage of five million last year in two hundred thousand this year or something like that. The numbers are in the book, you can read all about it. All right. Speaking of the book, it means e book, by the way, means it exists in electronic form and is not a bound book, but a tackles myriad, topics. We've covered here on your money briefing over the past twelve months, not just simply your paycheck. But also things like. Donating to charity from your IRA. Oh, yes, we tried to be as complete as possible and go provision by provision. We even put in some things that hadn't changed because people always want to know about them like donating for from your IRA. So we recommend that all Wall Street Journal subscribers go and download the book and have a look at it and have some fun reading about taxes. We we did try to make it as simple as possible. And we just go provision by provision taxes can be fun. When you understand it. Also, one of the tax law many deductions were eliminated or scaled back the book tackles that too. Yes. Exactly. And then it's interesting because a good section of the e book is how the tax law has tweaked benefits to companies, and that's very important to investors. That's right. That was written by my colleagues in Washington and in corporate coverage, and they explain the new twenty percent deduction for small businesses and how the corporate tax rate moved from thirty five percent down to twenty one percent. And what that means for coming. Please do business in the US and abroad. So they're they're good long sections on that. All right. We'll check out the book on the Wall Street Journal homepage entries from members of our journals tax and economic team, including Laura Saunders and Laura thank you so much for stopping by. And thank you. And that's your money briefing. Im JR Waylon in New York for the Wall Street Journal.
Airlines Face Challenges Going Green

Gory dot com slash WSJ magazine or call six four six seven eight zero eight three eight three. With what's news from the Wall Street Journal. I'm Ameri for totally and New York air carriers are facing a push from consumers to go green. The Wall Street Journal's middle seat columnist Scott McCartney says they've made some headway in becoming more efficient, but greenhouse gas emissions are still on the rise. Scott McCartney joins us now via Skype from Dallas. With more details. Scott, the Wall Street Journal has been reporting for a while now on how different industries from food companies to airlines tech companies are facing more pressure from consumers to be more socially conscious and take steps to be more eco friendly. What can you tell us about what consumers are asking for? When it comes to go ingred in the skies. Marie. It's it's a bit of a mixed bag. Some airlines have offered carbon calculators where consumers can actually pay to offset the carbon pollution that their particular flight produces and they see very little uptake on that. But on the corporate side corporate contracts with airlines increasingly include carbon offsets and companies that that contract for a lot of flying. With airlines really are pressuring them to reduce emissions. One reason is the companies themselves have to report their environmental impact each year and how much their employee's. Fly plays a big part in that. So by reducing their greenhouse gases produced by flying. They can make the company themselves a little greener tariffs a little bit about the progress specific air carriers have made in recent years to go more eco friendly. What are some of the initiatives they've undertaken so most of the progress so far has come from greater fuel efficiency in new airplanes? If you compare the new air points coming off Boeing and Airbus assembly lines today with planes from the say late nineties, the the generation of. Points that we saw then I'm there about twenty percent. More efficient today. If you go way back to the early jets of the sixties and there about seventy percent more fuel efficient. So there's obviously a direct correlation between how much fuel a plane burns and how much greenhouse gas is produced out out the back of the engine. So with that twenty percent reduction that they see when they replaced an older plane with a with a newer plane nape been able to increase fuel efficiency by about two percent the airline industry in two thousand nine actually voluntarily set a goal that by twenty twenty that they would average one point five percent reduction each year, and they're they're in pretty good shape to meet that goal. The have a mid term goal of all future growth from next year going forward being carbon neutral. So in other words, not increasing their emissions and they're not in such good shape. For reaching that goal. What we've seen is that. Yes, fuel-efficiency has. Creased? But flying is also increase are more people flying more points in the sky. And so actually the total tonnage of greenhouse gas emissions produced has been increasing not decreasing. So let's talk about that in some of the challenges and reducing greenhouse gas. Emissions. Why is that been such a problem for airlines? The basic issue is there aren't a whole lot of alternatives. You know with with automobiles we have electric cars hybrid cars with the electricity generation you can switch from dirtier fuel to a cleaner fuel. There are a lot of alternatives solar energy people are using things like that. That's not the case with airplanes. You gotta put some kind of liquid into the into the tank and burn it through the jet engine. We've seen a lot of attention focused on bio fuels and biofuels are very interesting to be the first biofuel demonstration fight, I covered it was back in two thousand and eight almost exactly eleven years. Ago, and we still don't have consistent biofuel use in the industry. Biofuels are produced from from plants from algae from recycling waste products. They're six different approved types of biofuel, and they don't burn any cleaner necessarily out out the back of the jet engine. But they're credited they're seen as cleaner because the plants the algae they suck carbon out of carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere. And and so the the the process of producing them is a whole lot more beneficial for the environment than drilling petroleum out of out of the ground, but the biofuels are expensive. There have been both competing needs for the resources for plants for nuts things like that. And in competing uses in terms of tax credits for biodiesel and things. So the industry has had a very hard time getting away from. Petroleum based jet fuel. I'll right. I've been speaking with Wall Street Journal middle seat columnist Scott McCartney coming up, we'll talk more about the goals. Airlines have set to be more eco friendly in the future. Scott we've been talking about what airlines are doing to go green. And also how that process has been somewhat slow going for them. What are you hearing from airlines about their goals to become more eco friendly in the future? You talked about some of those goals ahead for twenty twenty but going even further past that what are the ultimate goals, and what are the challenges? They're the main goal. The industry has adopted is that it's pledged to reduce its overall emissions by fifty percent by the year twenty fifty and that's off of the the base of how much missions were produced in two thousand and five to get there. A lot of things have to happen. We discussed the sort of incremental results produced by greater fuel efficiency, the notion of buying carbon offsets, which basically means paying an environmental group or someone else to plant trees, and it will take carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere in the same amounts that air. Lines actually, put carbon dioxide into the atmosphere out the back of a of a jet engine, but t to really get to a fifty percent overall reduction in the amount of missions, especially when the industry is growing, and we'll presumably continue to grow. It's really going to take some kind of radical new technology. There's a lot of research going on electric airplanes. And some hope that electric powered airplanes battery-powered could provide some service on short routes with, you know, light passenger loads on these aren't gonna you know, let something radically changes likely not to be big pointing likely not have the stored energy to fly long distances. So even that will be if it does happen would be sort of a marginal improvement to get to that fifty percent reduction. It's really going to be challenging for the industry. And what about federal regulations are those likely to? Speed efforts along in any way in terms of federal regulation in even European regulation. Other nations, you know, we we haven't seen that. So far the industry is is concerned on the the concerns basically revolve around the possibility of a carbon tax someday, which obviously would be passed onto to passengers and might either restrict flying or encourage airlines to get cleaner faster or the possibility that nations will say, no more. No more flights reduced flights things like that. You have to remember the airline industry worldwide is about two percent purchases about two percent of greenhouse gases. So it's very small compared to automobiles compared to become about the same as electric city generation in the US. But that two percent, you know, it's still a very visible two percent. We all see the points. Flying overhead. Some of what you see the contrails on a plane is is not. Greenhouse gas. But is in fact, water produced by the engine, but the water itself creates a cloud way or that does help heat the planet. So it's a it's an environmental concern as well. You know, in Europe, there's been a lot of talk to people jump on airplanes for for ten year olds and go for the weekend, prog or wherever and and it's so cheap that maybe it's shouldn't be so cheap. Maybe there shouldn't be so much sort of spur of the moment whimsical flying. And maybe for the sake of the environment. We need fewer flights and maybe bigger airplanes, Wall Street Journal middle seat columnists Scott McCartney, joining us via Skype from Dallas to talk more about the airline industry's efforts to go. Green scott. Thank you so much for joining us. Great to be with you Mary. And that's what's news. I'm Anne Marie for totally in New York for the Wall Street Journal.
