Behind Louisiana's Climate Plan To Become Carbon Neutral

"The state setting aggressive climate goals perhaps the most surprising is louisiana. The longtime oil and gas state is now trying to figure out how to become carbon neutral by twenty fifty teagan wetland of member station w. w. n. o. reports like so many in louisiana. Daniel autan knew exactly where to find a solid career oil and gas hard work but it paid for his family's modest home on the edge of the woods outside homa thought it had a job for the rest of my life but five years ago the notoriously boom and bust industry came for him. He's in a completely different field now. Construction sometimes he wonders if he should have done something differently to stay with oil and gas in. You look at things from from the big picture and you realize you know you were probably lucky to have your job as long as you did. Democratic governor john bel edwards seems to have come to the same conclusion about the state's reliance on the oil and gas industry in a major shift. He says the state must find ways to address the cause of the climate change. That's behind increasingly powerful hurricanes floods and rising seas so last fall he launched a climate pask forced to come up with a roadmap to zero out emissions. If anyone can identify innovative and sustainable solutions for future it is louisiana and our kids are counting on us. Louisiana is the fifth largest carbon producing state and petro chemical and oil and gas producer for decades. It is subsidize the industry with tax breaks and incentives but made it hard for wind and solar companies to operate or develop now the climate commission will explore the potential for electric cars mass transit more solar even offshore wind turbines in the gulf of mexico. Just put it this way. It's the first time. Any louisiana governor has put the words climate initiative in taskforce together in one sentence.

‘Recall Newsom’ effort gains more than 1.3 million signatures

"Story. Everyone in California talking about today and now nationwide is the recall movement against Governor Governor Gavin Newsom. Over the weekend. We got word of 1.3 million signatures is the current tally, according to recall organizer's 1.3 million signatures. That means that they're on a pace of about 100,000 week. They need to get to at least 1.5 million quality signatures. But in order to know that they got the signatures, they've got to get two million. Two million signatures. Let's see 100,000 per week and we've got seven weeks left where at one point yet it's very going toe to be very close. But we have to keep the pace we're on. Get to the two million so 1.3 million signatures was the big announcement this weekend. They need two million signatures that would require about 100,000 signatures each and every week through March, 17th. Which is the deadline to submit them, But for you and me to collect them were probably really looking at March. Mm 8/9 or 10th. To submit them to the campaign so they could be properly reviewed, vetted, processed and submitted to each of the county registrars of voters. Now there's also been big developments over the weekend in terms of candidates getting in the race. We had John Cox on this show on Thursday of last week. Well, on Saturday, he announced it's official. He's running for Governor, John Cox ran in 2018. He was the Republican nominee. Um And he said he's running because Newsome is really that bad, and he's learned a lot about how to run races from his last race. Also right wing activist Mike Son of Bitch who has a big following on Twitter announced today that he is also going to file papers to run for governor if the recall qualifies. Kevin Fucker is still saying he's looking at it. But his team said he raised a million dollars $1 million and he put out a tweet saying this is a movement. Really a million dollars. Well, what he doesn't tell you is that the million dollars came from 13 fat cat donors. Kevin That's not a movement. Must you put a word with the letter B at the beginning of it, But anyway, the point being, we now have candidates. They're stepping forward and running on the Republican side. Lots of them. Also a billionaire has put $100,000 into backing the recall effort. Chammah, Polly Tapia. He's a Internet guru big following on social media. He is very, very wealthy. Challenged him last week that if he's going to run for office, he better pony up and give money to the recall. He has done that $100,000 to back signature collection. By the recall committees now In a in a sign that Gavin Newsom is taking this recall threat much more seriously. He's not only beginning to cave on important policies like the State Home Warner, or last week, he was indicating. Very big shift is coming on his decision to back government teachers unions to force kids to stay home and keep the school shut. But now we're seeing actual money being spent against the union. I'm sorry against the recall The National Union of Health Care Workers today rolled out a digital media campaign where it is running ads asking thousands of Californians to sign a petition opposing the ouster effort. Uh, the funding of these ads not only designed to dissuade people from signing, but they're also Reinforcing that If you signed their petition, they can get your name off of the recall paperwork in case you signed as some a mistake in case you were confused. Not a whole lot of people are gonna be confused. But what you're going to find, though, is that the unions and Newsome are now going to start pushing counter signatures. They're called withdrawal forms. Under California state law, someone who signs recall paperwork can take their name off of the recall petition after it's been submitted to the state. By signing a roux withdrawal petition. Why would you sign a petition to recall a state official and then turn around and sign a withdrawal? Well, yeah, you could change your mind. But what Newsom in the government unions and Democrats are banking on Is that people may be confused. They may not know what they're signing. So, for example. The National Union of Health Care Workers Campaign. Is emphasizing not the recall of Newsome. They're saying signed the petition because quote Now is not the time. To move Caliph Now is the time to move California on Medicare for all You see what they're doing? There is they're trying to make Medicare for all the issue, which is among some voters popular, even some Democrats popular They may not know what, exactly what they're

"Bachelor finale we need should be in half an hour Tops should make the convention should basically be. I'm Joe Biden. She's comma Harris. If you're still undecided at this point, I don't know what to tell you. Your morning Wisconsin James Carton. Weighing in on the exuberance, extravagance unnecessary. Nonsense of what is our political conventions in this country, You know, to all the textures. I've been a little hard on the DNC. I will be equally hard in the RNC next week. Whatever that is. I'm not even sure what their plan is. Yet. They're starting a week out some details. President has said he's going to speak. In the White House. I look forward to that presentation and see what he has to say This. It is the Part of Americana, right? We have to have the conventions now one of the interesting dynamics of this year's DNC other than the fact that we're pandemic and it's not really happening is that's Former Ohio Governor John Kasich. Has Basically said he's voting for Biden. To the point where he's actually are actually spoke last night. But before we get to that, he did an interview with CNN's Don Lemon. I've I've actually been on Don Lemon's show all the way back in 2012. I'm not a huge fan of his for a lot of different reasons, but he's got a show on CNN and he had John Kasich. John American politician. Author News guy news host. Commentator obviously and author of Plenty of Op. EDS. About politics in our country. Here's a little bit of that interview and then a little kind of set up. Our conversation was going to play a little bit of the Of his conversation to the American people last night at the Democratic National Convention. You've been critical of President Trump since the very beginning, and you've even supported his impeachment but going with a Democratic candidate for president, a whole different ball game. How'd you get to this point conscience? Don, you know you and I've done a lot of shows together. And you know, at the end, I hope you know this that I try to follow my conscience in terms of what seems right to me. And you know, I didn't support Trump the last time because I was on the debate stage with them. I watched him and I was afraid he was going to be a divider, not a unifier, somebody that would go out of his way to be critical of people of the other party or didn't think the way he did. And unfortunately turned out to be right. So I looked around and I say, K. Now what? And we can't continue to go down this path. It's it's I mean, people are now speaking to each other if they disagree with them with through clenched teeth. There's almost hatred going on. This has to stop because the great things that happened in our country whatever they are women's suffrage, civil rights, they happen when we come together. Not when we're divided, so I felt that Joe Biden would be a unifier. He would stop this division and we get back. Teo, you know, sort of a civil conversation could be arguments could be strong. But at the end of the day, I think that he will include people not exclude them and stop the name calling former Ohio Governor John Kasich, who also was a featured speaker last night at the DNC, We'll get to that in a second. The points are interesting, though he identified way back in 3 2016 election that he saw Donald Trump as a divider. Not a unifier Tonight. I'm hard pressed to disagree with that. The president is a lot of things for the ardent and strident supporters of the president. He does what they like. He votes the way With his his words the way they want. He's certainly appoint Supreme Court justices that they like and they are more than happy to vote for him, and that's your right as an American citizen, and I know there's a lot of people out there because I hear from all the time. At the same time, there is a group of Republicans. Who don't want to vote for this president. And I'll put it in a different way. There are conservative Republicans who hate this president. Because they don't feel the represents conservatism. Nor any of the ideology that they have. Stood for over the all the time they've been a conservative Republican, and I think that's in disputes. When you talk about this 2020 version of our presidential elections. We had this happen. Before we've had people say I I find myself not able to vote for my candidate. It's having on both sides of the aisle throughout history. But this is an interesting one. And it's not the greatest election of our lifetime. There all the greatest selection of our lifetimes Depending on hold, you are and what year it is, they're all big. They're all they're all matter. They'll decide the future in some ways or another on what our future looks like, as a country and as a citizen. But when I hear something like John Kasich It was a candidate for president in 2000 and 2016 both times. Last time we went up against this current President, Donald J. Trump didn't like what he saw. It does, I think, raised the question. Can you be conservative and Republican? And vote for Joe Biden, a Democrat who is nothing close to the mostly conservative principles you stand for, and to me. Although I'm not voting for either candidate it is and I think it easy answer. And the answer is yes. Because we see it being demonstrated. But John Kasich now he was Chosen to give a speech last night at the DNC. Here's a little bit of what that sounded like. Many of us have been deeply concerned about the current path We've been falling for the past four years..

This election represented wasn't a little perhaps heavy handed with the imagery there, But he's certainly he's someone who has been a lifelong Republican who's who has been a presidential aspirant himself, who has decided to come out and speak out against against this president to join this convention. And there's been mixed response from some Democrats is our colleague, Scott Petro, was talking about earlier, a number of Democrats were not pleased that on the first night of the convention, a number of Republicans in an unusual move are part of the conversation. One thing I noticed one of all of their endorsements of Joe Biden seemed to be on a personal level, and I wonder if this isn't very successful argument many ways politically to say, Look, you are making a personal decision. When you cast your vote for president and we're telling you Whatever our political differences, this is the best personal decision. You hear that from a lot of Republicans and also from a lot of Democrats who talk about Joe Biden's decency has compassion.

"Thank you for listening to our mini so just couple of days ago where we talked about big tack, and how conservatives should approach them as monopoly, essentially, what is the free market approach to monopolise? We got such great response and actually sense, the dropping of that episode you might have seen it on Twitter. You might have seen it online. Amazon is under unbelievable scrutiny right now for that massive cloud contract that we talked about in our episode there, even Elizabeth Warren, Alexandra Kazu, Cortez and myself. Actually all agree. According to report Amazon was using very agreed, unethical practices of offering a job to someone at the department of defense at Amazon. If they were to get this through, which is boy, let's open an investigation. Because that if you wanna talk about crony-capitalism not capitalism, not free enterprise, not entrepreneurialism. But instead, cronyism isn't that isn't that it in its form? One of the world's most valuable companies going after a government official just try to get this massive government contract for themselves. So check out that article, and it really is proof positive everything we talked about a couple of days ago in our big tech episode, essentially the subtext of that helps owed is how should people who believe in the free market approach monopolies? We've got great response on it. So I want to talk about to brave Democrats. Boy, that's an unusual thing you don't hear very often. Brave democrats. I mean, the party of Alexandria, you'll Cortez, the party of Rashida to leave or the party, the Llano Omar the party of Cory Booker the party at Hillary Clinton is their bravery, left and the democrat party is their courage left in the democrat party. And I think what is missing so often from our country is a lack of courage. It's a lack of standing for what you believe in and standing against the mob. And if we're honest with ourselves, the democrat party has become a mob. The democrat party has become a mob on basically, every major issue, but especially in the issue of Duns and abortion. And so when you see a person say, especially in the democrat ranks raise their hand and say, you know what? I'm not going to go with the mob on this issue. I'm going to go against the grain. I'm going to be a contrarian. I'm going to stand for truth. I'm gonna do something difficult and take the political repercussions as they come. And we saw two instances of this in the last week, and both are amazingly instructive. And I think they illustrate a trend you're going to start to see in the democrat party and the coming civil war in the democrat party to brave Democrats, the first of which Louisiana governor John Bel. Quarts Louisiana's democrat. That's right. Democrat governor signed a ban on abortion as early as six weeks of pregnancy last Thursday. I mean my goodness that puts him right in line with other conservative southern leaders, such as Mississippi Kentucky Ohio and Georgia. Alabama went even further completely outlawing virtually all abortions, and so he has getting unbelievable backlash from his own party Planned Parenthood, the NAT narrow, which essentially is the most radical pro choice organization out there. Have gone after him in ways that you can imagine? Now John Bel Edwards actually has a personal connection to this issue. So John Bel Edwards, whose daughter had a spinal complication while she was in the womb of her mother he decided not to have an abortion despite his doctors advising him to do, so, so he signs a heartbeat Bill, which could be anywhere between six weeks to eight weeks and should we be at a point in our country, where abortion should not be legal when someone a baby has a heartbeat shouldn't that be a consensus that, yes that is a human life. Yes. That is something that is individual that should be protected. Obviously a more dependent human life. Obviously different form of human life. But human life that should be preserved and protected. The Louisiana legislature overwhelmingly supported this band with a seventy nine to twenty three house vote and. Thirty one to five Senate vote. Think about that only five centers and Louisiana state senators opposed, this abortion, measure so good. I knew John Bel Edwards democrat governor from Louisiana and I think the signal something that's really important. I think this, and the next example, many us as we talk about to brave Democrats, and the in the in this in the mob of the democrat party in this see of radicalism, you have to brave governors that have come out. We'll get to the second one second, I think the signals that they are trying to push back against the growing intense fervent radicalism within their own party. Whether it be post birth abortion, endorsed by. Dow governor Ralph northern or the New York abortion measure or the Illinois abortion abortion measure, that was just passed, and hopefully is not going to get signed into law by governor Pritzker. I believe you are seeing these Democrats take a stand for what is right. Because they're worried that if this trend continues there will be no more Democrats in the middle part of the country. There will be no more Democrats in states, like Louisiana or states like Iowa and we need more Democrats, like this that will do. What is right? That that will do what is correct. And I will say it is harder for a democrat to stand up to their own party than a Republican is a Santa thrown party when a Republican stands up to their own party. They get nice articles written about them in the Washington Post. Look at Mitt Romney when Mitt Romney stands at the Donald Trump, he gets treated like a hero when a democrat stands up to their own party, and does something that conserves agree with they get vilified. They get thrown under the bus mind. You I was reading a lot of these articles about the abortion ban in Mississippi and Louisiana and a lot of these articles written by Huffington Post, in by BuzzFeed that we're trying to demonize and we're trying to throw this entire issue in the wrong direction. They weren't even saying he was a democrat. I mean, the media almost saying radical governor. Governor John Bel Edwards. Well, you had to go all the way down to the bottom of some of these articles to actually see that it was a democrat governor that was doing this and other good examples just than a Marsh. Mc Justin Ammash opposes his own party. He gets nonstop wall to wall coverage on CNN and MSNBC. He gets beautiful write ups in the New York Times, the sole Republican not strands for integrity and stands for the rule of law. But when democrat stands up to his own party or her own party, the backlash is immense. So I can make an argument and it's actually harder to be a brave democrat than be a brave Republican, quote unquote. Brave Republican standing up against the Republican party. I actually think a brave republicanism when, like rand Paul or someone like Mike Lee that stands up to both parties. That's actually my definition of a brave Republican, but the mob is alive, and well within the democrat party and you could see the vitriol and the hatred hurl that, John Bel Edwards, and good on him for doing the difficult. But correct thing to stand up for life and to stand up for the unborn in Louisiana. So the second democrat that was brave last week. And isn't it amazing that we're able to say that, to Democrats did the right thing, you know, and just want to reinforce this point Democrats tend to be more collective? Whereas Republicans are more individualistic, and so by definition. And by actually, how Democrats view politics, and they the people Democrats are much more likely to vote as blocks Democrats are much more likely to look at things in the view the collective whereas we as Republicans are, if you're listening to us as a Republican or those of us as conservatives I should say or conservatory in, if you listened to my second episode ever, y believe what I believe if you haven't I highly recommend it, those of us that believe in the individual, we don't actually view each other as doing things in the collective. Oh, as it's the individual I and if we find people that agree with us, then we'll do things together that the Democrats are the opposite. It's, it's we must be as one almost like the board from Star Trek. We must be one. Entity together, the second democrat that did something bold and did something courageous. The nevada. Governor Nevada democrat governor Steve, Cecil lack I believe on saying that correct. Governor Steve Cecil IC on Thursday. This is so important. I want to dive really, really deep into this because there's there's about ten points. I wanna make on this particular issue. And then I want to kind of do a little history behind it because I believe this issue is not going anywhere. It's one of my most passionate shoes. And one of the most underappreciated and misunderstood issues in America today. Governor Steve celek, last Thursday, isn't it amazing that both of this happened on Thursday, by the way, I just think that's kind of cool that both these Democrats did something courageous on a Thursday. Vetoed a Bill that would have seen his state. Join a growing movement to affectively end the electoral college. This is done by an organization called the national popular vote. And so the electoral college, allows states to allocate their electors as they see fit. And we'll dive into a couple examples of. That and why the electoral college is so brilliant. And we're going to build out the actual philosophical and historical background and depth behind the electoral college. But the electoral college allows each state to allocate their votes as they see fit so the national popular vote, they said, well, we're not going to be able to get a national popular vote pass through congress. That's highly unlikely. So what if we do it through the states? What if we take a state such as California, when we get a piece of legislation passed the California that says California will allocate their electoral votes based on whoever wins the national popular vote, so it will no longer be based on who actually wins the state, it'll be based on who wins the national vote will, then allocate the votes of the state is this, essentially, it's reverse engineering, the electoral college, some scholars think this is unconstitutional. Most don't and actually based on my own analysis. I don't think this is unconstitutional state can do whatever they want what their electoral votes, a state can say, you know. Hi oh, say, we want to allocate our electoral votes based on the winner of the World Series. If an American League team wins it, then we'll give it to the Democrats have a national team league team wins. It will give it to the Republicans. It could be that silly in the, the, the constitution says the state is allowed to allocate their electoral votes as they see fit. But the one caveat of the national popular vote movement is that it's a national popular vote compact. It's called the interstate compact. So none of this is affected until two hundred seventy electoral votes. Do it. So right now, they're up to one hundred eighty nine electoral votes. So, for example, California has done it Illinois has done it and many other states across the country..

"Flash. Thank you. And we are live from the Bloomberg interactive brokers studio who's in who's not in today's news on the latest democratic presidential hopefuls to toss. Their hats into the ring. Former Colorado governor John Hickenlooper. Says he'll join the field of Democrats competing to challenge. President Donald Trump in two thousand twenty alternately I'm running for president. Because I believe that knowledge. Can I be Donald Trump? I am the person that can bring people together on the other side and actually get stuff done. Former US attorney general Eric Holder. Meantime, used an op Ed column in the Washington Post today to declare he won't run, but will fight to elect the democrat with the kind of qualifications. He's column laid out joining us now to talk about the way the democratic field is shaping up is Bloomberg news money and politics reporter, John McCormack, John Mr. Hickenlooper is known as a pro business leader who tries to bridge partisan differences. That's just what the country needs right now in terms of bridging partisan differences. Yeah. He's really made a point of that in his career. He's he's from a state that of course, is sort of purple. It's been trending a little bit more blue in recent elections. But yeah, he's tried to sort of carve out a moderate position in the party. And and we think he could be the start of a sort of a second wave of presidential candidates who are going to start to emerge. Now the first crop. You know, very heavily progressive very diverse. So lots of women in the field. The second wave maybe very heavy on white men, and sort of more modern candidates would Hickenlooper being one of those former vice president Joe Biden, we're still watching. Of course, former congressman from Texas may have some news here in the next week or two so beating this next. Crop of candidates were expecting to be sort of more moderate than in town. Then the the initial wave of more progressive candidates an interesting thing about Hickenlooper is that looks like he could give President Trump a run for his money in the showmanship department. Tell us about that. He's he's known for his political commercials. He's he's a pretty entrepreneurial guy. In fact, he is sort of founded a brewery in downtown Denver. It was sort of the first big microbrewery. There. And he ended up building that into quite a business empire across the midwest. But he, yeah, he's very entrepreneurial Norio and he's known he in previous political ads. He's jumped out of airplanes a couple of times and taking a shower with his Sudan to sort of make the case that he wanted to run a clean campaign. So yeah, I kind of watch for him if he survives long enough to get into the phase of the presidential campaign or where they actually are doing television ads. I would look for him to have some pretty creative spots. Let me come back to this question of bridging partisan differences. I mean, we've heard so many politicians talk about this. What's the difference in this case? Yeah. Well, it's a very hard thing to do obviously as the country gets more and more partisan, and it may be it may not be a successful message to to win the democratic primary race where we'll find out whether primary voters will rally around that sort of message or whether they do. Do one more of a progressive and somebody who isn't going to try to cooperate with Republicans bike got in trouble recently for, you know, saying something about how he occasionally works with Republicans, and he sort of made fun of himself for saying that after there was a little bit of a mini explosion on Twitter about him him saying that so yeah, it's you know, polling shows that Republicans are still very supportive of the president, obviously Democrats feel much differently and and partisan differences. I think are are showing signs of growing not tricking. We've talked about this before if there are twenty twenty five thirty Democrats in the race. It could get you could get a pretty low number in Iowa or New Hampshire to get a ticket out of one of those places and keep going. That's right. And that, you know, fifteen or twenty percent of the vote might be very good showing in Iowa one thing to keep in mind on that score. We do think that they've, you know, the number could very easily grow to twenty or maybe beyond that. I think we're at fourteen as of today, but they probably all will not survive until eleven months from now on the Iowa caucuses are held is a really important fundraising deadline reports will be made on April fifteenth, and that'll be one important benchmark of sort of viability to see, you know, which candidates are able to raise money, which ones are not. And so I I suspect while we may grow to twenty that number may, you know, when I went south down to some lower number by the time, we actually get to the Iowa caucuses. But you know, the fundraising will be an important benchmark. It's one reason Hickenlooper didn't get into the race until today because he wants to say, well, I didn't get in until March. What are we March fourth? And so therefore I only had twenty plus some days to to raise money during the first quarter. So that allows him to sort of play down, whatever fundraising number he might put on the board on April. Fifteen does such a crowded field. Run the risk of sort of muddying the democratic message in a way of defining. What a democrat is. Yeah. That's a really good question. I think I think you're probably right. It will muddle the message 'cause it's gonna you know, we're going to have extreme left progressive like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, and then we may have, you know, very moderate candidates like Hickenlooper. So the democratic primary electric is going to have the smorgasbord of candidates. They're gonna win this field down until eventually, you know, there's there's one of them remaining, and whether that will be a progressive or a moderate remains to be seen. I think at that time the party will then you have to decide, you know, can't rally behind this one person, whether it's progressive or a moderate, and and then, you know, take on Donald Trump, you know, there's so much palpable energy in Democratic Party right now to try to knock Trump out of office. I think pretty much no matter who the party nominates Democrats will probably rally around that person. Can I just mentioned? Let's see fifteen ten fifteen twenty candidates running for president a candidate emerges the party gets behind. Oh, yeah. Republicans in two thousand sixteen. The process. It it does work can work. Right. Especially if you're that that last person standing it does give you sort of the kids table at a debate. But it works. You know, and and Trump actually obviously played that to his own benefit by you know, playing all of the the bigger name candidates off each other throughout that primary process. And and he really ended up being last man standing not because you know, going into it. He had such great poll numbers, but but he survived that process. So some democrat will will do the same and. Matchup against Trump and some way, Tom McCormack, Bloomberg news money and politics reporter. Thank you very much for joining us.
