"The following year cat. My national park was created seven years later. Nineteen twenty five km glacier bay national monument in the coming years although the territory attracted mountaineers climbers. Alaska remained a remote destination to most americans but world war two drew attention to its strategic importance during the battle of the aleutian islands. Japanese troops took over to thinly populated. Us own islands. Just west of alaska a year later. The us retook the islands. But the point had been made. Alaska had geopolitical and military significance. The country was just beginning to understand. America's interest in alaska continued to grow but without statehood. It would remain nothing more than a territory over the next two decades. Two different presidents would play hugely dramatic roles in the face of alaska. One was hailed for welcoming alaska into the union while the other was reviled as the dictator a tyrant to american history. Tellers is sponsored by better help.

Famous you know the mother of all relays and she is runner number one. And if people know anything about her because starts At timberline lodge which is at the base of mt hood which is a Glacier it's it ski resort. So it's a hail mountain and so it is that i like is notoriously steep downhill for several miles. And so i told the guest to train running downhill because to such a number on the runners quads.

Love Really Is What You Do With Dr. Albert Reyes

"So as you know. We're talking about the fruit of the spirit but not all of the fruit of the spirit although we may touch on some others we're focusing on love. Which is the first in paul's list and glaciers five. So i'm curious. What is paul getting at with this word. Love we in english. We have one word for love. Paul and many other languages. I say paul greek In many other languages have multiple words for love. And so when paul is talking about love. He's being more specific than we tend to be in english. So tell us. What is paul getting at. Yeah yeah there are different dimensions in shades of the word. Love in new testament. Greek language. the one we're talking about is probably going to be closer to a gop a love it some you know. It's a sacrificial it when when he's talking about the fruits of the spirit let's remember it's the spirit of jesus is the spirit of god so you know It's not jesus in the human form it's really his spirit in us in so if if his spirit lives within us than evidence of that of that spirit or let's say fruits of this will be the list that he often about love. Peace patients kind of goodness meeting. Joyce now control and so It's then it would be the love of jesus right but the the what. What kind of love did he demonstrate. Well greater love has no man but to give his life for his friends. And that's what jesus did. He sacrificed everything he gave everything for us. And so taking that kind of love It's it's it's a very unique kind of love not very common in today's society. Today's world for someone to empty themselves and sacrifice what they had for the benefit of another person. I really believe that's what paul is talking about. Is that kind of love. That's willing to put someone else. I and serve them for their benefit

Alok Sharma: Time Running out to Stop Climate Change Catastrophe

"World is dangerously close to running out of time to stop climate change catastrophe. That's the warning from Alec Sharma, the UK government's climate chief, who is leading the cop 26 summit to be held in the Scottish city of Glasgow later this year. In an interview with The Observer newspaper today, Mr Sharma said, the effects of radical climate change We're already clear with floods, fires, heat waves He said A report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change due to be published tomorrow would be the starkest warning yet about what the future might hold. Well, let's You know, from Professor Andrew Shepherd, who's a glaciologist at the University of Leeds here in the UK, Um could you first professor please explain what the remit of this PC report is and what you think it might say. So I think everyone's familiar with these reports. Now we've had them for the past 30 years. Um, what this report is going to tell us is the latest changes in the Earth's climate We expect But it's also going to say that we've changed parts of our climate system for good actually, and that's surreal. Wake up call. We're going to have to live in a different environment in the future because we're not going to be able to reverse Some of the things that have happened. And we've seen so many stories recently, pointing to the possibility that some parts of the climate system are already passed. Tipping points. Oh what? What? Which are the ones that you're most concerned about? So there are quite a few. Actually, I think, um across climate science, maybe a dozen also have been identified. But there's some really obvious ones that people will have heard about retreat of the ice in the Arctic Ocean, for instance, and rapid melting and acceleration of glaciers in Antarctica and Greenland. And they might seem a long way away from people because they're at the polls. But as soon as I entered the ocean that affects sea levels,

Why Is Snow on the Alps Turning Red?

"Glacier blood. No it's not a new flavor from heavy metal water company liquid death glacier blood is what some call the phenomenon of snow on the alps turning red and the snow isn't read from some type of pollutant or something like when that chocolate factory accidently coated whole town in switzerland with reddish brown cocoa dust last year. It's a naturally occurring phenomenon as the result of snow. Algae quoting the bbc normally these micro algae have a green color as they contain chlorophyll. The family pigments produced by most plants to help them absorb energy from sunlight. However when the snow algae grew prolifically and are exposed to strong solar radiation they produce red colored pigment molecules known as carotenoids which act as sunshield to protect their chlorophyll and quotes now. This red snow is not a new phenomenon or even a new discovery. The bbc notes that it's mentioned as early as eighteen nineteen in a book about an arctic expedition the year prior and the new york times points to aristotle as having the first written observation of red snow. It also doesn't just happen in the alps. Researchers two years ago found samples of what they've dubbed sanguine. Ah in europe. North america south america the south pole and as clearly illustrated by that eighteen nineteen book the north pole new occurrences do seem to be increasing however and some recent findings are shedding more light on the bizarre spectacle while the data isn't fully there yet most researchers believe climate change is responsible for the increase in red snow leeann bending a professor of interface geochemistry at the german research centre for geosciences in potsdam told the bbc quote the rise in the atmosphere carbon dioxide levels increases the temperature which leads to more snow melting. The moment there is liquid water on the snow. The algae start growing and quotes

Summer Mystery: Glacier Ice Worms Rise Again in the Pacific Northwest

"We know about the ice worms but we don't know about the ice worms at least most of us don't so we don't appreciate what an exciting time of year this is for researchers like scott hoteling from washington state university. It's time when the weather gets warmer up. They come squirming toward the light from deep within the glaciers on mount rainier billions of tiny skinny wriggling black strings that live in glaciers but died when the temperature drops below freezing but somehow survived for a long time down in the ice or replace themselves constantly. We don't know much about their reproduction and seem to surface in summer to bask in the sun but may have another reason in general their reasons for doing anything are largely on known as mr hoteling told. Npr there are more mysteries than there are solved things with ice worms. So there's a lot to learn still and maybe now that we've heard about this eager ice warm reception. We'll all give them less of a lukewarm reception.

David grew up on the leech. Lake reservation in northern minnesota. It's near what they call the mississippi headwaters region and it's about one hundred miles from the border with canada. The border lakes are basically how we travel and have traveled for centuries for generations. Native people would use these waters to visit each other and trade among different villages. It's basically a highway a watery highway and when he was growing up a new national park called voyagers was opening up right near there. Basically the part was plopped down in our yard. And david says that's the way a lot of national parks were created all throughout history. You know i think. Many americans imagine these national parks are made out of these. Untouched pristine natural landscapes. That's not true. People were living there. I like glacier. National park was established. Exactly a black homelands and the black feet reservation. Boundary was pushed off of what became glacier so they took the land directly away from black. Beat the black. People weren't allowed to hunt or fish or trap or harvest timber or worship within the confines of glacier the parks were set up in such a way as to deprive native people of our homelands and our treaty rights. The parks were just another way of taking. At least from native people.

"So now. You told us that tim. Bartholomeusz was surprised that he came across the glacial moss balls but other researchers had encountered them before right yes. They're rare. I mean they don't grow in just any glacier that seems like conditions have to be just right but researchers have spotted them for decades and they've seen them in several places like in alaska. Iceland spelled barred south america while and you know people who see them are generally pretty fond of them. I mean in the nineteen fifties and icelandic researcher described them in the journal of glaciology and he called them. Yoke lamis or glacier mice. I love that glacier mice. Okay so what do we know about these little fuzz. Balls as you're going there's limited research but we do know they can be composed of different moss species so researchers think they form around you know like a little bit of rock or a clump of dust and they just grow up to be pretty big like six inches across or something. And here's the cool thing these moss balls move around and it turns out they move in a coordinated way almost like a herd. Okay that's amazing. Let's let's take the first part. Because when i think of moss i don't think of movement you know it's pretty static i know. But researchers have speculated in the past that they must be moving because otherwise the bottom of the moss ball would be dead. It wouldn't have living moss but if you pick one up off the glacier and you turn it over and look you can see. There's actually green living moss all around the ball moving around rolling in some way.

Grammys to partner with Berklee, ASU for study on women in the music industry

"The Grammys say they're teaming up with Arizona State University and the Berklee College of Music in Boston for a study. Looking at women's involvement in the music industry is Kcrw's Terry Glacier reports. The announcement coincides with International Women's Day and comes a week before this Sunday's Grammy Awards. The Recording Academy's taking some heat in recent years for nominating and honoring more men than women for Grammys, and that's the case yet again this year. The academy reports that out of the 853 nominees who are up for awards less than a quarter, 23% identify his women. Part of that is because the Grammys honor not just performers, but also technical jobs like producers and engineers, which are predominantly held by men in 2019, the recording academy kicked off in an initiative called Women in the Mix. Encouraging musicians and record labels to consider at least two female candidates every time they hire producer engineer the academy says progress is slow going so the goal. The new study is to get a baseline on women's involvement in the music business and helped develop the next generation of women in the industry.

"The ocean that's reporter khloe veldman even with a couple of friends so tough khloe. Sorry tough katrina. What's a tough assignment. I eat always does all the time. But i had actually never tried this type. It's called an olympia oyster or ali for short. Oh i've never heard of that kind. Are they like well. They're much smaller than the oysters. Most of us in the bay area a familiar with they taste kind of coppery and pungent and this special because they are native to the san francisco bay. But the oysters you just heard me and my friend guzzling actually harvested from our bay scientists. Say it's still too polluted from agricultural runoff and other chemicals like mercury instead. These came from a farm in washington state. However for thousands of years the olympia grew locally in vast numbers three generations back would be a safe to say that our family last word gathering oysters from the bayshore east bay alone chef and food activist vincent medina says the only was a dietary staple for many local tribes including his own ancestors in raw they would also be cooked in earth ovens underneath the ground and with of sea lettuces and different types of seaweed acorn sue vicious meals matthew buca is an environmental historian and has written a book all about the bays voice to full past. He says olympia oysters. All along the west coast stretching from alaska all the way down into central mexico all these perfectly adapted to survive the cold waters of san francisco bay but they need rocky surfaces to grow on matthew says by the mid eighteen hundreds thousands of years of slow sea level rise and melting sierra. Glaciers made the bay muddier. And that's bad for all these. They were struggling. Basically then the gold rush hit and brought thousands of golden protein hungry settlers. It didn't take long for them to destroy the local population forcing oystermen to look further afield. All the estuaries of the west coast are essentially mind for there to satisfy this endless demand from san francisco. Matthew says soon even those far-flung habitats had been plundered. There were relatively few all east left on the entire west coast but there was still a demand for them. So entrepreneurs took to importing non native varieties from the east coast. You can capture baby. Easter's barrel them up. Put them on. Board schooners later on board unrefrigerated train cars ship them across the entire united states and then they would be placed into san francisco. Bay on privately owned tied lands and harvested as crop demand for always was so high pirates frequently raided the beds bay area native. Jack london tells us about it in his autobiographical novel. John barley corn the winds of adventure blew the oyster pirates. Loops up and down san francisco bay. Before london became famous writer. he was among other things. An infamous oyster pirate every raid on. An- bed was a felony. The ofa glamorized his experience stealing oysters from the bay by night and selling them in the oakland markets the next morning in several literary works and behind it all behind all of me with you. A bubble whispered romance adventure but even the imported oysters didn't survive in the san francisco. Bay for long the already muddy waters were made worse by mining in the sierra during the gold rushes. This turned up more modern sanders sweat downriver. So the san francisco bay historian matthew book says grow moved their atlantic choices to the south bay when mantras less of a problem but heavy industry and human sewage polluted. The bay waters a rash of deaths connected to eating contaminated puts an end to the san francisco bay oyster industry so by the early twentieth century. There are plenty of oyster bay but the people eating them are no longer so sure if this is the right. Food in the nineteen thirties bombing resumed in the clean waters of drake's in somalia's base north of san francisco but the focus especially after world. War two was on pacific oyster varieties from japan. Interesting cultivating the native olympia oyster as a food source dwindled. It still hasn't really come back. So will we ever be able to eat the native only ounce of the bay again even though no always does a grown in san francisco bay food there are efforts to bring them back to help restore the based delicate ecosystem and ecologists have focused on the native. Only that once thrived here sickle spot. Oh you been question. Scott joseph fletcher at the bay natives. Plant nursery in the bayview to interview linda hunter. She's the founder and director of the wild oyster project. Oysters have so many wonderful benefits. Linda tells us does have superpowers. So one grown oyster can filter fifty gallons of water a day. Oysters helped maintain the balance of marine ecosystem but reducing algae and sediment that can contribute to low oxygen levels causing other marine life to die. There's also the fact that oysters provide have attacked for other critters we as cluster on discarded shells rocks peers and heart submerged surfaces. They fuse together. As they grow forming these rock like reefs that make ideal homes for other marine animals. Implants into says the protect coastal lands by reducing the impacts of storm wife's. It's been proven that voice to rapes attenuate. The effects of rising tides caused by the wild oyster projects is trying to rebuild these reefs. That works starts with collecting discarded oyster shells from local restaurants and piling them. Up part sites like bay natives shows in. Linda says eventually these shells will be built into reefs unplaced in the bay. The idea is for these manmade reefs to attract native voices and as a result other wildlife like ill gross salmon crabs egrets says. They've already installed reefs near alameda. Point pinot the first to reflect the at point panel in richmond. I got a phone call from a fisherman who is complaining that his fishing line had been snagged on one of our reef balls. And i said Have you noticed more fish. And he said yes. I have thank you very much. But before they can be turned into reefs. The oyster shells needs to be clete. And that's where the chickens come in. They natives is home to about two dozen chickens. This is the chicken launch. There's not chickens. you have to clean the shell. Otherwise they get stinky and they attract kinds of critters. Should we feed the ins- off the shelves at cleaned laid out in the sun and several years later gobi ready to use annoy staff.

The Sun's rays were replaced by Carmen darkness momentarily. He couldn't see anything outside. It was like the darkest of all nights peaceful but missing the moon and the stars. The train slightly decreased speed. Maybe this was the time to slow down. Thome took a deep breath. The chugging sounds was still present and in fact a bit louder since they echoed of the tongue walls shrouded in darkness. Thome naturally became curious. What would the other side of the tunnel reveal? He liked to imagine an entrance to another world. As soon as a strain of lights glowed in the distance he focused on it but I the light grew slowly but as the end of the tunnel drew nearer the lights grew exponentially brighter until it burst out from older actions reflecting off the pure white snow revealing a seemingly endless mountain range back onto the blue sky. The train bathed in sunlight compared to the still darkness of the tunnel. This other world felt soft and warm as the sunlight is reflected of the pristine landscape. The train picked up speed. It ascended thousands of feet something most other trains avoid. The tracks spiraled up a tool mountain with its peak hidden in the clouds. The high elevation offered breathtaking views of the valley below steep craggy mountains reach toward the sky on all sides. The difference in altitude was apparent. The Sky and the forests gave color to the otherwise monochrome picture. It was an awe inspiring view. The train reached another planet and leveled out. The engine seem to sign.

"Komo so about six seven months ago ran out of the blue I get this coal from my old south of Tahoe Of course get into the cascades their start up again and when you're out in the mountains on one of the things when you think about it that you love the most about being outdoors in being in that experience Oh yeah it's absolutely my place just one of those situations where you know you're at home and I want to go back and back to the same places in sometime say it's like a lover you want to know every angle and from from all sides and ex all experiences so I think it's more when you find your your identity and your place that makes you feel whole that's where you want to know more and it's all a mystery to me I everything is a big mystery I think probably I was imprinted as a child by my parents took me to the mountains in this rapid world we need some quietude around us and I'm sure there are other ways of finding it it and getting it but this is maybe one that touches our our origins the best so today what are we gonna go and see Connie going up glacier it has a very steep front big kind of almost looks like a lava flow if you can imagine that and steep sides and this one has expiring coming out of it and Our colleague Dave herbst will be interested in looking at that for stream sampling so I think they'll we'll be able to get up onto the top of it and look across that's very undulating surface and then also look at the springs and maybe do some sampling today so after a few hours of climbing we arrived a stream flowing from what has all the hallmarks of a rock glacier now it's time for some science with Dr David Hus and his trustee lab technician et cetera. So David what are we what are we doing here looking for a pen to record the data it critical piece of information it's it's kind of an important implement of scientific investigation so hopefully we can come up with something instead of having to remember that numbers until they get back L. intimate I found it I found my ten guys pan it's all good it's all good people on the official scientific pen here take your yellow notebook so connie what we need is a GPS coordinates here okay so we're starting off just by locating ourselves and this is Barney Lake Rot Glacier pilots sample number one and what we're looking at here is a few measurements of water chemistry rock glaciers may have a unique water chemistry signature and so we have a Ph of seven point six five have we have a conductivity of twenty six and we have a temperature of three degrees Celsius Brit ten thousand four hundred fifty one feet we are seeing very cold temperature here though it wouldn't be surprising to see a lot of streams around here be maybe as cold as three especially springs but but upstream Connie's measure temperatures as low as one degree C that's more or less constant year round okay so that's a pretty characteristic thing for a rock glacier it's basically refrigerated water regardless of what time of the year oh can I do that we got a little net yeah okay so you got the glove on so one of the critters that actually live in this freezing water midges which I thought would just annoying cousins to mosquitoes apparently do other things than bite me what does the midges eat they eat a variety of different things the ones that are living in that I think we're going to find in the stream eat algae but there are predatory midges midges eat fine particulates organic matter little bits of organic matter that come off of decomposing leaves in would that fall into the stream there's also midges that feed on the decomposing itself they tear apart the would tear apart the leaves with specialized mouth parts and There's also midges and you like Midge expert pretty much yeah there's not there's not many of us but I am image expert okay here we go this is the exciting so we're stirring up the street bottom here in an area that's approximately equal to the width of the net and letting the current carry critters.

"The bagley icefield gets the largest non polar icefield north american. The beckley is essentially a giant bathtub of solid ice. It's one hundred twenty miles long six miles wide and in some places a half a mile thick a giant bathtub of solid ice. It's one hundred twenty miles long six miles wide and in some places a half a mile thick ice fields are created at high elevations. Were it's too cold to rain but as snowfall accumulates over time it gets compacted under new layers of snow and gradually turns to solid ice ice that will eventually be the source of glaciers. It can be hard to see from above by the ice in this giant bowl is actually flowing out into valleys between the surrounding mountains as glaciers. Uh the bagley is a giant in the world of ice so it's not surprising that the glaciers at spawns giants to in one of them is the largest and longest glacier in the world the bearing at its mouth this one glacier is ten miles miles wide every year it releases six and a half trillion gallons of water into the gulf of alaska. There are few natural environments as forbidding to humans as the treacherous surface of giant glaciers flying across the bearing is the only way to peer down into the thousands of deep and shifting crevasses make up this glacier just one of these could easily swallow low people

"RV homeschool podcast where we make travel educational and fun grab your hairspray and your hiking boots as we head to glacier National Park the home school podcast I'm your host Amber Steuben the RV homeschool podcast is your source for travelling the US and Canada with kids in your recreational vehicle so we cover the sites the logistics campgrounds and educational opportunities and we focus on the national parks as we are take our elementary aged girls to all of them and also the camping accommodations that work for a large motorhome everyone in the family to describe glacier next the parks in just a few words I would say that Glacier National Park is majestic Jeremy said that it was epic Greta said that it had a lot of cool animals and also reminded us that she almost died there and that's part of our ice hiking story that I'll get to but overall the National Park is called the crown of the continent and that's for a very good reason it is so absolutely beautiful and spectacular and just an odd moment when you get there in your mouth drops and you say wow I can't believe this place we heard a lot about it we heard people say that can you really you can't understand until you go there just why people love it so much so let's talk a little bit about the location of glacier national park so it is located in Montana it is in the north west part of Montana and so it's not necessarily real accessible to most people across the Nation Lotta Times people will fly to a nearby area and then drive over to glacier and stay at a hotel or maybe try to rent an RV we did do the drive all the way from Colorado but it took us a few overnights ticket up into the area where glaciers at and then of course you WanNa have enough time to spend time there at glacier so we waited until we had a good couple of weeks in order to do this trip we actually throw in a little bit of time at Canada while we were there because you're only about four hours or so from banff and that's really worth some time to spend some time there in Canada and Banff in Z.. Everything at Lake Louise and everything else but we'll do another podcast on that overall though it's a little bit hard to access the area and of course you're only able to really go see it for probably three or so months of the summer so the main road that goes through the park the going to the sun road is only open really at the end of June sometimes it's opened as late as July this year it was opened by the time we went and I think our trip up there started about July twenty sixth so it was opened in time for us it's not always opened by then sometimes it's not till July obviously people tend to go in July and August before school is back in session and you could go even all the way through September but then the windows pretty much done now you're on wintertime the roads are closed and it's hard to access this era area so just so you know that's kind of location and then what you can come to expect in terms of the season that you can go and seek glacier national park.

"We the bring this back to the beginning we were talking about mount rainier and the seattle mariners but just the other week you did right you your latest article that you were about glacier peak glacier peak as a relatively anonymous unknown cascade volcano that is where amount rainier as southeast of seattle glacier peak as northeast of seattle but i don't know if there's any meaningful difference and distance between the two areas as the crow flies and glacier peak as you've written is both poorly monitored and extremely explosive so if you had to actually hazard a guess between mount rainier in glacier pico which volcano do you think has the the better chance of actually let's we're going to use baseball cells the framework which will kennedy a thing has the better chances of impacting the baseball schedule i mean that's a tough one i would venture to say that were near is more likely to have an eruption because it has more history of a reps and this is getting back to the same comparison acm up for is that you know rainier has had more eruptions that we know of historically so if you were to just look at the probability it has the highest probability that it could erupt again glacier peak on the other hand hasn't had a lot of hasn't had as many eruptions that we know of so it is a lower probability eruption but it might be a bigger option when it happens so he hit out in terms of disruption of a baseball season at still probably lean on rainier even if it's not as big eruptions just because i think any eruption of rainier is going to cause people to freakout especially in the seattle area navy so there might be some delay for you know if the mariners are at home they might move the venue of this game two someplace else but in terms of national impact on the season it would a bigger option a glacier peak which seems to have more of that in a in its record might be the place you'd look if he wanted to disrupt the base while.
