Coral Tourism-Coral intro and wrap

"A tourism company is determined to entertain and educate their guests about the Great Barrier Reef. A new UN report recommends the Great Barrier Reef being inscribed on the list of World Heritage in danger. Reef magic cruises offers tours off the coast of eastern Australia, dive leader Ennis maurer says the goal is to more than just look at the wreath. We could educate them. This WALL-E, they see the coal and the bit more curious and they ask us sometimes question about the thing always the cold edge because it's this color and everything and we can actually tell them. They talk about reef ecosystems and threats to it like pollution. Careless touching and climate change. Tourist Jane buxton hopes things don't get worse. Maybe not even in my children's lifetime, but in my grandchildren's lifetime. I hope that things will have gotten to a point where we don't have to worry about climate change affecting the race. The Great Barrier Reef accounts for around 10% of the world's coral reef ecosystems. I'm Ed Donahue

Anyone meeting with people advocating that point of view in my judgment are highly unlikely to ever be elected. President of the United States. Now Trump has yet to denounce the anti semitic views of either of his dinner guests, Australia is pushing back on the United Nations backed mission that pushes to add the Great Barrier Reef to a list of endangered World Heritage Sites, Australia says no need for it, UN says the world's biggest coral reef ecosystem has deteriorated because of climate change. In San Francisco, Ahmed Baxter, this is Bloomberg, our Brian. All right, thanks very much. Ed, let's get to our guest Carol schleif, CIO at BMO family office. Carol, I want to ask you about China. I know the fed is on a lot of people's minds, but we had this incredible action here in the past 24 hours. And I think there's a burning question here. So we had the protests and then the huge police presence, and then yesterday, China striking a conciliatory tone. The comments that we got from the health authorities, how real is this? Is this the party reacting to what they saw and deciding to give a little, or is it just another example of keratin steer? It's a great question. They've got a really fine needle to thread because it's very important. That they look supportive, if you will, of continuing to business to entice businesses there, especially their relationship with Taiwan. And yet it's got to be very trying for the leadership because they want the authoritarian control over what's going on there. So hopefully it allows some changes for people clearly the global markets want to see China loosen the zero COVID policy because every time there's even hinted that the global markets rallied, especially those all important technology shares. But it's going to be really interesting to watch the actions on the ground match, but some of the verbiage has indicated so far. Yeah, it's an interesting question whether or not you put money to work in China at the moment. There's certainly plenty of uncertainty, but plenty of upside as well. How are you judging the situation? We're continuing to remain pretty balanced overall in our portfolios and U.S. centric in the portfolios because U.S. stocks are on sale this year as well and not as badly as a lot of the international stocks, but there's a lot of fundamental support underneath things here even though you're seeing layoffs in the tech sector. You've also got a lot of fiscal stimulus headed into the markets. It's been earmarked, but not necessarily spent yet. We've had strong capital spending. We've got a lot of strength in a lot of key industries. And we've got to turn in some where some of that growth is going to happen too in the next couple of years to longer term. And so there's a lot to be excited about in U.S. markets. And so I think we're choosing to take our equity risk there more so than going neutral weight even. Could we remain underweight in the market? Well, it would be music to the ears of other emerging markets if China was softening a little in its approach to COVID-19 and the very tough and strict restrictions that we've had there. So that's something definitely to follow. And of course

Anyone meeting with people advocating that point of view in my judgment are highly unlikely to ever be elected. President of the United States. Trump has yet to announce the anti semitic views of either of his dinner guests.

The UN says the world's biggest coral reef ecosystem has deteriorated because of climate change. In San Francisco, Ahmed Baxter, this is Bloomberg Douglas. Thank you, Ed. Let's get to our guest guar of Malik is with us. He is the chief investment strategist at state street global advisers. He's on the line from Boston, thanks for being with us. We've been dealing with the inversion of the yield curve in the states for some time, obviously a lot of the conversation has focused on recession. It seems perhaps inevitable at this juncture, I think we need to address the timing and the severity. Do you have a view on this? I think that if it is a recession, it's likely to be a mild recession. So I think we will see something happen in the first half of next year. It won't be across the globe. But I think we can expect it for sure in the Eurozone and maybe a mild recession in the U.S.. We think that the pace with the fairness tightened and how it's showing up in both the inflation numbers and the anticipated growth slowdown. But perhaps cause the fed to shift more towards cutting rates. So it won't be a situation where you start seeing a sign of recession, rates are still being held really tight. But in stagflation, consequently the session becomes more words. So I think a micro session would be what we would expect. We saw markets kind of going sideways in the U.S. today, potentially holding off for the wise words of Jay Powell. What are you anticipating to hear more of the same in terms of the reality check that we've had from other fed speakers this week? I think so. I don't think that they will, I mean, you know, when I start looking at both Bloomberg zone financial conditions index, you can see that in the last month, it's moved up dramatically. We've seen financial conditions loosen a lot in the last last month already. So I don't see them changing the language dramatically, still sticking to being worried about inflation, much like last time you will see something being said about growth concerns. Or the fact that they are seeing some of the slowdown or the fact that with the lag is going to show up. So I think that language you can expect. But I think they're going to still pull a pretty firm line on inflation, especially with losing we've seen the move up in markets. I mean, all those are signs that investors are perhaps getting ahead of the fed wants them to be. So for embracing this notion of softer growth, maybe a shallow or a mild recession. Do you want to avoid the equity market right now and look at what's happening and fixed income? Yeah, I would say so. I mean, I think that I know we've had quite a strong rally and very honestly. I think we were asking us, as we were thinking about 2023, if you were asking us an outdoor November, we'd be telling you that what played out in the last two weeks is something we expect to play out over the next 12 to 18 months. So from college January 2023 until the first quarter of 2024. And it all played out in two weeks time. So I think I did back in equities sort of treating this as more of a bear market value that would not surprise me multiples of 18 on the S&P or global markets trading at MSA one trading at 15.9 16. I think that's a bit ahead of where it should be if fed fund rates is something in that four or 5 range, right? And like it is sustained for at least the first half of the next year. So I think a tip back in markets would have to announce a surprise. However, for it to go beyond the levels we saw the lows of June of this year, I think that's a bit more challenging. Given our view

Australia argues against ‘endangered’ status for Great Barrier Reef

"Australia's environment minister has said she will fight against a UNESCO decision to add the Great Barrier Reef to a list of endangered World Heritage Sites, Australian environment minister tanja tilby sex said the criticisms of her government's inaction on climate change were not justified. If the Great Barrier Reef is in danger, then every coral reef in the world is in danger. If this World Heritage Site is in danger, then most World Heritage Sites around the world are in danger from climate change. Kill the sec insisted the Australian government were doing all they could to save the reef. There is no need to single out the Great Barrier Reef in Australia because there is no government taking the risks to coral reefs more seriously than the Australian government. Scientist Jody rummer disagreed. We can not claim to be doing all we can for the reef at this point we aren't. We need to be setting that message

"A kidnap, occupying sea urchin, et cetera, has its pricks on the outside. Getting back to the subject. Dropping our slick bomb, particularly from low level, always presented the danger of it exploding beneath you and destroying your aircraft as well as the target. A retard bombs use a high drag device known as a boot, attached to the rear of the bomb which deploys after released a slow it down, allowing the aircraft to escape the fragmentation zone. Now you know about as much regarding Bond dropping as I did at the time. Luckily, the sophistication of the hornet's weapons system took care of my ignorance, and turned this particular art of war into something akin to a computer game. Something we were all quite good at. As a result, it became commonplace to hear the range safety officer declare scores like two o'clock at ten feet, 5 o'clock at 20 feet. DH direct hit. DH, DH, with our academic skills, I adequately honed, it was time to bolt on some live ordinance, and head north to the royal Australian Air Force Base townsville. For a short detachment. Townsville was and I'm sure remains a picturesque city in Queensland, on the coast in between Brisbane and cans. Already populated by Aboriginal people, it was settled, sometimes violently, by various groups of colonialists in the 1860s, and it became a productive area of sugarcane plantations. In the 30s, an airfield was established there which became a military base during World War II. Townsville was in the tropics, the winter months of which were dominated by the southeast trade winds, bringing fine weather, blue skies, warm days, and balmy nights. The flying was exciting as we worked up with formations of low level, overland missions which culminated in a live bomb drop on cordelia island just off the coast. These missions were often opposed by about aircraft. That would attack the formation several times as we ran around the route. We spent a lot of time looking for the bounce with radar and visually, in case it's swung our wing line and was approaching from the rear. It was during these exercises that I began to truly appreciate the sophistication and capability of the hornet as a multi role aircraft. Armed with air to ground weapons, it could also carry a pair of wingtip mounted, aim 9 mic heat seeking sidewinders and a pair of belly mounted aim 7 mics sparrow radar guided missiles to defend itself. Having gone through the air to air phase, we were well practiced, in engaging other aircraft and facing our formations of two or four hornets, the bounce was usually neutralized before it became a threat. Indeed, the flexibility of the hornets fighting modes came clear during one particular engagement. Our bomb dropping profiles were often pop attacks, in that we would fly to a point adjacent to the target at low level, and then pop up to a predetermined altitude, whilst visually acquiring the target. Overbank and then pull the target down into the head up display at the correct dive angle, aim, release the weapon, recover, and then dive back down to low level on a safe egress heading. During one of these attacks on pitching up, the bounce was spotted loitering over the target, hoping to engage us during the egress. The sharp eyed pilot rolled his thumb forward on the stick, switching to the hornets air to air mode, locked to side winder to the enemy fighter, and fired. He then rolled his thumb back to re-engage the air ground mode, reacquire the target, check his attack parameters, and then pitch down into a successful bombing ram, smooth beyond a bit of leaf. The mission, including a night radar attack, kept us busy. But we had enough time off to enjoy some of the delights of this small tropical coastal town just off the Great Barrier Reef, and everything it could offer. One of those involved a strange form of local gulf played in an attempt to reduce the area of a plague of cane toads. These noxious pests were deliberately introduced to Australia from Hawaii in an attempt to control the voracious cane beetle that was damaging crops. Sadly, in Australia there were no natural predators facing the cane toad, but plenty of food, most of which didn't actually include the cane beetle, which lives high up on the sugarcane stalks and out of reach. From an initial 102, over the years, the cane toad population exploded to an estimated 200 million wreaking havoc on the ecosystem and causing the extinction of multiple species. From eggs to adults, the cane toads are toxic, having glands on their backs, which hold a buffo tox sin. One lick or bite can kill native animals that might otherwise have kept the numbers down. As a result, there is considerable encouragement to humanely dispatch them wherever they are found. Stunning followed by decapitation is recommended. Hence the unusual form of golf played on the lawn outside the mess. Other more conventional forms of entertainment included white water rafting, down the Tully river. With an average annual rainfall of four and a quarter meters, that's 14 feet, the river has an impressive level of flow, which makes rafting through the rapids truly exhilarating. We partook. And all had gone well until our happy band of fighter pilots had been split up to help a group of Japanese ladies paddle along. I took a seat amongst the lovely ladies, and then watched with horror, as the remainder of our group, in their raft, took a wrong turn and ran over a waterfall. They were all spilled out of the inverted inflatable, and once underwater were caught in a powerful underwater rotating current. A standing wave that pulled them deep into blackness, and spun them around like flotsam and jetsam. Once seized to despite their life jackets and desperate attempts to swim clear, they were held underwater for a frightening length of time. One by one they eventually bobbed to the surface, and we pulled them into our boats. The looks on their white faces was enough to assure us that the fun had gone out of that day. More to my liking was a down and a luxury catamaran to swim over the Great Barrier Reef

"The legislation, which is key to its passage, given the greens hold the balance of power in the Senate. That's despite the greens in ability during negotiations to include bans on new coal and gas projects in the legislation. But band has vowed to find other ways to fight new fossil fuel projects. Even just one big project would blow these weak targets out of the water, he says. There are 114 new coal and gas projects in Australia's investment pipeline. That includes the controversial Scarborough gas project in Western Australia, which would produce liquefied natural gas, LNG, much of which would be exported and burned in Asia. The project led by woodside energy is facing a public backlash, which has included online petitions and protests outside the company's Perth offices. And a legal challenge from an environmental group, which argues that burned fuel from the project would increase global temperatures and further damage Australia's Great Barrier Reef, which has already been hit by climate change induced bleaching. Activists say if the project goes ahead, burning the fuel unlocked from underground will release as much pollution as 20,000 flights around the world every day for the next 25 years. The greens aren't the only group in Australia fighting against new coal and gas projects. Many Indigenous Australians oppose new fossil fuel developments on their traditional land. A group of Indigenous Australians, for example, filed a lawsuit in June to try to stop Santos limited from trying to develop a multi-billion dollar gas project off northern Australia. And 6 in ten Australians, 63%, support introducing a ban on new coal mines opening in Australia, according to a 2022 poll by the lowy institute think tank, and the percentage of younger Australians that don't want any new coal mines is even higher at 70%. That sentiment was evident in the recent election, which delivered a stinging rebuke to the conservative Liberal Party, which pumped tens of millions of dollars into a gas led recovery from the pandemic and elected a record number of independent candidates who support tougher climate action, so called teal independence, and members of the greens party. These climate friendly politicians have promised to hold the labor government accountable to take action, and their efforts were visible in negotiations over the climate Bill. Before it was passed by the House of Representatives, the government agreed to add in several minor amendments to strengthen it. The beginning of a long journey how Australia's emissions targets will be implemented remains to be seen.

"Democrats lose Senate vote to codify abortion rights into federal law. Leaders of occupied Ukrainian region seek to join Russia. And most Great Barrier Reef coral bleached by climate change. It's Thursday May 12. I'm Anthony Davis. The U.S. Senate fell short on Wednesday in a rushed effort toward enshrining roe V wade abortion access as federal law, blocked by a Republican filibuster in a blunt display of the nation's partisan divide over the landmark court decision and the limits of legislative action. The almost party line tally promises to be just the first of several efforts in Congress to preserve the nearly 50 year old court ruling, which declares a constitutional right to abortion services, but is at risk of being overturned this summer by a conservative Supreme Court. President Joe Biden said that Republicans have chosen to stand in the way of Americans rights to make the most personal decisions about their own bodies, families, and lives. Relatively few Americans on either side of the debate take an absolutist view on the legality of abortion, gallop polls show American support for abortion in all or most cases at 80% in May 2021, only slightly higher than in 1975, when it was 76%, and the Pew Research Center has found 59% of adults believe abortion should be legal. Biden urged voters to elect more abortion rights lawmakers in November and pledged in the meantime to explore other ways to secure the rights established in row. For now, his party's slim majority proved unable to overcome the filibuster led by Republicans. The vote was 51 to 49 against proceeding, with 60 votes needed to move forward. Vice president Kamala Harris could have provided a tie breaking vote in the 50 50 split Senate, but that was irrelevant on Wednesday. One conservative Democrat, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, voted with Republicans, saying he supported keeping roe V wade, but believed the current Bill was too broad. The Russian occupied region of kearson in Ukraine plans to ask Russian president Vladimir Putin to incorporate it into Russia by the end of 2022, Russia's tass news agency reported on Wednesday, quoting the military civilian administration there. Carson is the first region set to be annexed since Moscow began its military campaign in February, saying it needed to disarm Ukraine and protect its Russian speakers from fascists. That rationale has been dismissed by Ukraine and the west as a baseless pretext for an imperialist war of aggression. The Kremlin said it was up to residents living in the region to decide whether they wanted to join Russia. But henna dealer hooter, the ousted Ukrainian governor of the cursor region, told reporters that the population wanted only a speedy liberation and return to the bosom of their homeland. Their mother, Ukraine. Cursing home to a port city of the same name provides part of the land link between the Crimean Peninsula, which Russia seized from Ukraine in 2014 and Russian backed separatist areas in eastern Ukraine. Ukrainian president volodymyr zelensky said around that time that negotiations with Moscow would be at risk if Russia used pseudo referendums to justify an annexation of the occupied territories. In a video address last night, zelensky condemned these marginal people who the Russian state has found to act as collaborators. He said they were making statements of cosmic stupidity. More than 90% of Great Barrier Reef coral surveyed this year was bleached in the fourth such mass event in 7 years in the world's largest coral reef ecosystem, Australian government scientists have said. Bleaching is caused by global warming, but this is the reef's first bleaching event during a la Nina weather pattern, which is associated with cooler Pacific Ocean temperatures, the Great Barrier Reef, marine authority said, in its annual report released this week that found 90% of the area's surveyed were affected. Bleaching in 2016, 2017 and 2020 damage two thirds of the coral in the famed reef off Australia's eastern coast. Coral bleaches as a heat stress response and scientists hope most of the coral will recover from the current event, said David wachenfeld, chief scientist at the authority which manages the reef ecosystem. The early indications are that the mortality won't be very high, he said. We are hoping that we see most of the coral that is bleached recover and we will end up with an event rather more like 2020 when there was mass bleaching, but there was no mortality. Simon Bradshaw, a researcher at the climate council, an Australia based group that tracks climate change, said the report demonstrated the reef survival depended on steep global emission cuts within the decade. This is heartbreaking and deeply troubling, he said. It shows that our Barrier Reef really is in very serious trouble indeed. Last December, the first month of the southern hemisphere summer was the hottest December the reef had experienced since 1900, a marine heat wave had set in by late February the report said. A United Nations delegation visited the reef in March to assess whether the reefs World Heritage listing should be downgraded due to the ravages of climate change.

"Scientists say Australia's Great Barrier Reef is suffering another mass bleaching. That is when corals ghostly white due to heat, it's becoming more common as the climate warms as NPR's Lauren summer reports. Even though it's autumn in Australia, the water around the Great Barrier Reef has been as much as 7° hotter than average in the past few weeks. So scientists have been watching the reef closely flying over it in small planes. From the air they can see some corals are bright white. David walking field is chief scientist of Australia's Great Barrier Reef marine park authority. This assessment of bleaching at multiple reefs confirms a mass coral bleaching event on the reef. Corals turn white when they're stressed because they lose their roommates, the tiny marine algae that live in corals. Those algae make most of the coral's food. But bleaching doesn't mean the corals are dead yet. If the water temperature decreases, bleached corals can recover from this stress. But temperatures haven't cooled down yet, and this is the fourth mass bleaching on the reef in the past 7 years. What jumps out at me is the frequency of these events. There's just been no recovery window for the corals. Emily darling is with the wildlife conservation society. She says these bleaching events are becoming more common as the climate gets hotter. And without time to recover, coral reefs are at risk of disappearing, harming those ecosystems and the people who depend on them. We need to really learn from these bleaching events. We need to change business as usual. We need to take action on climate change. That means cutting carbon emissions, she says, as well as protecting coral reefs in pockets of cooler water. Those refuges may be some of the few places that corals can survive. Lauren summer, NPR news. TJ added is one of the few black executives in the tech world, but he's trying to change that. If you're looking to.

Which is we need to develop an economy that doesn't rely on coal or gas and indeed. It doesn't already said narrative. That's been the cleverly. We've seen by the fossil fuel industry coming up brightening clouds and other longshot ideas to try to rescue the reef. The people have been thinking about talking. T- grime i the coal-rich scientists. I mean these folks. It seems to me. Maybe when some of them were bit younger and got into the field it was a taming ecosystems thriving and they're overseeing a collapse on a scale that almost you can't compare to any other ecosystem. You're telling me that. Potentially nearly all the carl on earth may be damaged by the kind of hate that is predicted to come over the next few years. How are they responding to this. What are they doing to try to save this ecosystem that they study. After of these bleaching events the things that some of these scientists have seen that they are traumatized. I did not see a single healthy coral. On that re- i'm really angry at the government isn't listening to the evidence that we're providing them since nineteen ninety eight people over goldberg.

"To the reef and they can't really because all the government sound scientists say so in public reports so instead they have to make this sort of procedural argument so that's what they did and so as this. Lobbying campaign was taking place. Was there a sense of who. The australians had to persuade. Was there a feeling that this was going particularly well for them or particularly poorly in the weeks before the vote actually happened. There needs to be a two-thirds majority of the committee to put a sign on the endangered list and it became clear quite early. That probably australia starting to gather enough support. How did that what quid pro quo agreements were made. We may never know. But for example spain was one of the countries that were supporting australia. Spain has a site that it wanted to be inscribed on the world heritage list. Unesco had said no. Australia co sponsored an amendment that said it should be hungary was another one hungry at a saw it that was listed to be endanger australia co sponsored an amendment to block that endanger listing so were these agreements taken on. Merry all. was there a bit of use. Scratch my back. i'll scratch yours going on here. And as a result of all this backscratching or otherwise. What's the final result here. I mean to destroy manage to avoid. This listing yes. The world heritage committee voted against the listing. Australia had asked the the world heritage committee. Not consider this issue again until twenty twenty three but in fact what happened. Was noah away with the backing of china. Came the last minute amendment saying well. We've been getting sent things from australia. And they say that. I've already got the new reef policy pretty much finished off. So why does australia need saw long. So in the end. what's happened. Is that within the next six months before february next year. Australia has to host a mission from unesco it has to finalize its new reef policy and then it has to report back to unesco..

So cain to avoid the raping placed on this endangered list. What actually happens if the reef is considered to be in danger for one. I think it would be really embarrassing for the australian government. The government says if it was to be put on the endangered list. Then you would have to put on all these other sites that are world heritage listed. The unesco has said are also in trouble from climate change. there's more than eighty of those but countries that rely heavily on resources and australia is one of the world's biggest export of call on one of the world's biggest exports of gas tend to push back if the australian government is on notice that it's ref- is in danger and signed up to a convention promising to protect it and yet here it is approving more fossil fuel projects be can see how there's a lot on the line. This kind of warning should have rung alarm bells in the halls of any government. But tell me about scott morrison government. What's their record like on issues like climate and environment. And if you ask scott morrison he will tell you that australia go to great record. No other country no analysis. No the think tank seems to agree with him. Scott morrison says australia is only responsible. Was one point three percent of global emissions. The thing is when you take into account it's exported petroleum and coal and the population which is around twenty four million people. I mean we have a country of zero point three percent of the world's population but it's actually responsible for five percents when morrison the prominence was treasury so he brought a lump of coal into parliament through it around amongst these colleagues held it up and said this is cole.

"University of queensland cold professor of her goldberg in the mid to late nineties he was sort of going around the world scene coral reefs bleaching and he had an idea that this was a stress reaction and it was caused by warming ocean waters and he actually wrote a paper in i think it was nineteen ninety nine and the paper said that events severe as the nine hundred thousand nine hundred eighty eight event the worst on record a likely to become commonplace within twenty years and all he did was he took some really simple climate models so the working out. How much more extra seal to do. We think we're going to pump out there. And then he looked to the thermal tolerance of the corals and he looked went. Well this thing is not matching at around the year. Twenty nineteen twenty twenty. Most of the corals will be bleaching fairly regularly because the war will be too. i mean. that's that's simple and horrifying that's the prediction that simply most of the coral will be bleaching. That must have been really controversial. The time it was controversial and people like of her goldberg and other scientists around the world was sort of criticize as being alarmists. How did they look now. They are bang on or in some ways possibly a bit too conservative. We had mass bleaching events twenty sixteen seventeen twenty twenty so if anything. These events are coming along a little bit earlier than even that work. I anticipated the term mass bleaching event. It could be antiseptic. Well what are we actually talking about. Have you seen what a mass bleaching event looks like with your is the twenty. Twenty bleaching event was the most widespread on record and we had corals bleaching across the entire two thousand three hundred kilometer length of the reef in some cases the ocean temperatures become so hot that the corals don't even have chance to bleach they basically just die from heat stress. You have scientists that. I've spoken to the have been in the water road in the middle of these bleaching events and when they come out of the water there's smell sort of a smell of rotting flesh and it is literally the flesh of the corals falling off as they die from heat stress..

Scientists curious to see what the decline means for fish analyzed reefs globally and found the declines in coral species also led to declines in fish, not surprising. More eye.

We both have young families. And we're both avidly into the outdoors whether it's fishing hunting or of both. So that's our goal is to You know recruit new new anglers and new hunters to the to the outdoors around. The timing is really appropriate for unit. We've got a whole new. Recruitment a coming in because the cold or sport is never seen before experience in the outdoors and they need our need some guidance. in cases do you know respect the resource in S an important part of what's happening now with these whole. Nobody's covering it. Yeah it's it's been fun to watch you over the years. 'cause you you've really helped kind of teach everybody about that and i know as a kid. I always look forward to outdoor life coming in the mail and also in fisherman magazine because that was that was kind of the thing was you know i wanted to learn more about fishing and growing up in cheyenne wyoming. It was like a dead zone fishing. I mean there's there's really not much closer unless you're going to drive like two hours to glendow three and a half hours to seminal five hours to voice in like you just forget about it. There's just nothing there so you're talking about teaching people. I was reading that as much as could. Because i knew when i went. I had to really capitalize on those trips and sell ob. You've done amazing job about that. And i just wanted to know if you could just share some tips with us you know. What's what's in key strategies of getting kids and just other anglers out on the water. What are some good strategies and tips number one number one. Make sure you take him when you can get a bit people. I i mean i can't old is powered pork edges especially with the younger ones. That have a short attention. Spans inter is critical. That baba's going down or something pulling on the end of that line and Are that's one in even with a new adults and we have a lot of those coming into the sport now that have never fished before and yes. They have patients where the young people don't however their patients will wane after one or two trips without getting up by. It's the biggest hinderance that i've seen to our sport and your people neck key is getting a bit a bike. Too late that fire they gotta catch something and You don't wanna take him out in this herbal weather conditions yet the weather good into everything your power to make sure that they get back in there and the reason people fish in continue to fish is they had a good experience and a good experience is something pulling on the end that the wire gets really the reason you're out there. That's what motivates people is the miracle of of this. It is amazing to me. My entire life in this business to see would fish can do this change. Somebody's like yeah. Yeah you know a kid sitting under edging blue gills and all of a sudden nowhere. A two pound bass runs out reminders. That back and grabs your bank. You never had. You're catching a six inch blue gills and having a ball in this best is your hook break where your life forever somebody had never muskie fish. You know they heard something about it. They're they're going out with somebody that knows something about all of a sudden next to the boat. This monster opens his mouth bites on. It's an image yet burns into your into your spirit that change. It never goes away. That's what likes to fire in this sport. And here's why it's so important. That that their two n into good weather to do it in your. That's the key is to get get a matching get a matching get them and then if they're really young after three hours to think to run into live whether you get a few fish rockets there fascinated with fish bouncing around in a live That's the key really. Is the key to keep them motivated. Keep them fishing kit. In a short period of time you know and again with the adult young person after after you know you get them out for two trips. Third time Yeah you're going to say you want to go fishing or meet today too bad experiences them. They're gonna go bad back in play video games. Interests will beer so al. I was fortunate enough to grow up near salt water and my dad in the pacific northwest. We did a lot of salmon and halibut and deep sea and i got introduced very young to fishing. We actually just had a podcast with my dad on talking about starting that fire that you're talking about i'm curious who was the fishing mentor in your life. The person that got you hooked on fishing. Actually my my brother and years my senior and He he took me every weapon time. I was a little kid. Yeah you know. He's seen a bring cash and he shared that he said there was something about it from the time you were little. You're obsessed with fish and fishing and he nurtured that he actually nurtured that dad dad in him being older than i am a yeah you know. He kind of took me under his wing and I had some really good experiences in those years. One of them that that really fed my passion for fishing was my mother and this is kind of strange but a share.

Blew about seventy miles an hour through cheyenne. But i mean it's it's just it. It really did make a big difference. And i do want to.

And and i know. He's very influential and big into the fishing businesses. Well but can you talk a little bit about what that was like raising your kids to be fishermen but also you know kind of raising them during that time that you know you're just so busy and you got all these things on with the with the fishing world and the fame that you had going on. How did you manage all those things and still make it a great experience for your kids. They grew up in the business. they did. There's not all all seven right here except in children.

Welcome rarities Actor to it these days. It's a lifestyle business that you want to get into anything cup. Lack of time it is. It isn't in ninth the fact you you know you eat sleep twenty four hours or so you go to bed at night thinking in still today at the. That's been in this my life. There is not one and go. That goes by that. I don't read something about fishing. Watch something about fishing. Talk to somebody about dishing. It happens all the time. Not a day goes by where some aspect of it is in touch in my life. A part of my life in My closest friends are pretty much involved in fishing industry. Right closest friends. Are that sparks your question for me. L. and that's you know i'm kinda way way beginning of this journey. I've got a small family run company but it's in the hunting outdoor space. And you know. My boys are being raised growing up when we work right. We have stuff to do. There's it's a small family run business. it's not you know. Dad goes to work at nine. And we're we're done at five and let's go do x and y but my question is long term for me. My dad took me fishing law. And now i go hunting and now. My boys are in a hunting company being raised. How did you see kind of the transition of with raising these kids. In the company in fending fishing industry they stayed on and continued to fish and still thrive as that was our was that a positive experience for them. Oh yes yeah. Yeah for a number of now. There's some of them that was not. I'll use my to poison example. My oldest son george in here in heat you shared with the. I'll give you my first experience with it. needs he. He was raised in the business. He worked in. It works wade through until they went off to college in it but he was interested in fishing gets his passion in his case. Was things that move fast snowmobiles motorbikes four wheelers dirt bikes. This is what he loved to do. Sounds like we'd get along pretty. Well do troy and the other hand off from the time. He was a little tiny kid. You could see the seat of he would be back in front of our h- house here a day and night catching frogs and just running up and down the bank catching he'd loved it from the time he was four or five years old internet. Never change he absolutely left. And i just think again. God created all slightly different with different interests and is a good thing. You had one boy in the garage tinker on motors and going faster and you had another guy you couldn't keep at the house. He was taking his fishing pole and he was to the water at four and five. Yeah in in in you and your the answer. Paracha half have respect know. I respect that. They have to be their own person in in in seek out for thinks the all that you know that those different interest levels impacted their right as they were growing up in reading some cases to to what they're doing today you know again my son toys into it in a lot of different areas of my oldest son and interestingly he he he liked even as a kid. You're living on the edge. He here you love the excitement of the snowmobile races today. He he'd get so pumped on yet in today. He's he's the paramedic he's a wilderness paramedic in he's fighting fires -fornia loves the game. You're whites. He likes ribbon on the edge to me. I like living on the salary to belated contentment. That's what i really like. And you know. I follow troy on social media and that that guy is always out doing something. And he's. he's an incredible fisherman. I mean it's it's yet it just anything anywhere any way any loves digging around in offbeat places for a coupla. He's got he's got pack whereas in no matter where he goes scurrying rats. He sees the body of water anywhere. Anything they could hold the fish he just drives up insider road. And rodney goes spacious anywhere anywhere crapping around the country with him because spent he's spent some time out west and i know he's fish some areas where i've been and it's just kinda cool to see that and i do want to ask you a question about that. Everybody has some of those favorite moments. What it was like a favorite moment for you fishing with your kids that you can recall the years ago with troy. I'll give you a. I'll give you my my oldest son that never got turned onto it and here's winter. Mistakes that make made with the there was a series the best tournament series. Starting in minnesota zillion years ago it was called the northstar bash turned into and when he was about four years old. I took an pre fishing. Mary and i got a cabin on the lake. And i took him pre fishing for that tournament with me and he had snoopy rag. You had snoopy rag. And they had to wait spinner baits. Then you know it was cool. We're up in the morning out. Who day thinking around. He's dragging this spinner baits through the water. And you know. I'm trying to catch some fish. Internet little said something. It's something from we'll get more moves out to have been great you you you hold in iraq ruled colin. He looks at me. it looks at the rad. He throws looked at me again. I got the message. You burn me out so bad. And so i think there's a balance there were so you know. My dad took me steelhead fishing. And i've i've got quite a few steelhead to my name. And if anybody out there knows steelhead there they can be finicky and tricky fish to catch i. I mean the passion for catching them is kinda gone. I've i've i've been out steelhead fishing and i've seen this in the hunting industry where you know you get some guys. That are pretty. Some prowess in are pretty successful. They take their sixteen seventeen year. Old son out. He shoots a world calibre elk and ten years later. He's he's not in elk cutting he's into fishing or snowmobiling or something else does. Ruggles images of the other side of that story would try. What are the experiences a for a number of years we as a family.

And what are some tips that you give people when they're going to a brand new fishery and they've never been there before. What do you tell him to look for. And what are some tips that you give them.

But i wanted to change gears just a little bit One of the things that have admired you for years is that you're not afraid to talk about your faith and i think that that's very important thing and you know i want to see if he can share just a little bit about your spiritual journey and how god is played a big role in your life after the two most important parts of my life. The next year shared all all the time. It's fishing in my unity. Go hand in hand every day. Day is just part of my life. I integrated what we do with the television shows. You know the the impact that it it a try to kind of quickly for you until the time. I was thirty five years old. You know i was a person. It was not an atheist store. Nick knight that nasdaq. I probably would have favored more upper eighty s. And i don't believe anybody that spends any amount of time in the outdoors anywhere can be an atheist. I think that's an impossibility. But i had no really. I was obsessed. And i guess that's the only word i could use obsessed with fisher twenty four seven. That was all that and you know. It gets all in our businesses. Were building at that point in time and At thirty five started giving turkey in my heart to Right to spirit a guy who was just tugging in my heart. I met people that that Turned her life over to the lord. Lord that were hard party hard-drinking people that i knew a hard partier. You know when they were like a different person you night and day and he started to talk to me about about jesus guy stuff i never heard of before the enemy sound comes with a lot of people you gotta understand nothing really new number and then i started the search knowing there's life got you got your busse heart who's much of his life in in one day turned us away lord has given us percents and i says well i i can't do it myself i need help i need your direction. I'm just saying guidance. Any made a confession of faith. Like they're nice and his life and then for about two years you know i wandered around back. Studied the word guide. The bible began challenged thing to me to get through a through know little things like could this really be real. You know like so many people. It's this bible. Could this stuff really. But this this thing is is there a guide the foundation guiding coke. Jesus was the foundation. Is this thing that he really is is. He says he is to be comfortable recently. Said he did from beginning to end. Yeah you know. And i started looking at this stuff. You know one day it got out of my head arc. It was never less years. All i can say is if you truly search is real. He's there you care some words to be. It's a real experience. You know the the point he's got to get out of your head in it. You have become a part of my everyday life. I'm not ashamed for the dash. That's it openly. That's who lamb. And i can only share the experience that i hear. And how would i life. My family My outlook on business. Now look on life right back by relationship with my wife and the older. I get a clearer easier. It is for me out to be more appreciative of of my lord grayson so al. I've got a question. It's a immuno high positive this way in a as starting my own business in the outdoor industry and then walking in faith in how how has that affected you know business decisions and just in a living in the limelight and and outwardly expressing. Your faith is there. You know ever moments of doubt. I mean 'cause i in today's society and day and age is definitely not something that's widely accepted. Are you saying in here by some subject back. But what would you buy. S- i mean as far as just running a business and then walking in faith. I if you look at the marketing partners that i have every single one of a from boat motor rag reels lures lying a wreck. Chronics are the top right at the top of their field in their individual categories. Everyone of and we've been with them for many many many years. Some of them almost my entire career. And i've said in corporate boardrooms all over the country. Go going all over television space over television network and contract saying that we re mega conglomerate and never have. I had one of say anything about my confession of faith and that show it all. Most of them have said they appreciated it and go forward and one of the reasons for that is an and some of them are not people but they businesspeople and the bottom line. Is i self stuff for. That's what i still stuff on. I do my job or am i would absolutely. That's why they don't you know so it's it's a only one. Major major challenge would network. It was who was with a network and and jerry jones johnson. They want forgot about guy that that was the words that they came back came back and they said that it's interesting the way they did notification we played on this network for a number of years and this particular year correct when just the way it always hits in five weeks into the show and it was a wednesday afternoon when it got where got i got contacted by the president of networking. And he said it's gonna pull the show because you're religious stance on it. We don't believe it's we. We went network anymore. This was on a wednesday. We get i managed. They did this going to pull it if we did we. Did we read it. Every i reiterate that we think energy i get contract signed with a bunch of sponsors and i had to deliver the numbers in so we get at that show and euronet weekend in the entire re edited version. And we continue our attorneys. Said you know you've been with. They want to take the court. You can't beat it you got. You ran for five weeks already. You did this for years. They never get it. They can't do for this thing and and they talked iran in in my wife. Laura his wife's no we'll go to thorough. They don't want you. i don't i don't want to be there. they want. They want us to be pulled what they want. They wanted to be this what we did back to show to them. We make the changes in our last of the contract for the television season. We sent them with bill. They said the bill hearing on pitching to us and we sent them the bill. Bill them back or the editing changes. We have to make sent it back. I never heard from them. That i didn't pay for the network in europe. Charge them back for all of the pain and misery went back bent. So it's no legal. Nobody called us back. Matt a single thing the legal. Nobody their legal. Nobody never heard from him since well. I'm really glad that you guys you know you. Un ron have have always been good about you. Know talking to people about your faith and it's been a centerpiece of the show and one of the parts of the show. The actually look forward to a bunch is the very end when you go through whatever god lays on your heart and i really just want to say. Thank you for doing that because we need to be able to talk about these things and i. It seems like culture is trying to move in a direction where they don't want you to talk about stuff that might offend somebody. But it's like you know these are things that we should all be talking about. You know if that's part of your life that's an integral piece. You should be able to talk about it. And there's one one thought i have on that. Patrick is to speak to have speech to have thought. You risk being offensive. Right to someone. And i mean if we're just gonna walk around muzzled and mass and never have a conversation about anything i mean. I'm into big game hunting that that can be offensive. Catching fish can be offensive. So we have to push back. We have to go. They'll run over here if you don't get you know and i'm a big thing an immediate business all my life. I'm a big believer a freedom of expression freedom of speech. Even if i don't with it so am i even. If i don't agree with it you still have a right to share. I understand and i respect it. And i think that's something that people need to remember. Is that just because somebody says something. You don't like doesn't mean you have to agree with them. You can just choose not to listen to that person anymore. I mean there's there's stuff that's put out all all the time that i don't listen to and i don't want to be associated with because i don't agree with what their stance is and you know there's plenty of stuff that i do love to watch and listen to that. I do agree with people that disagree whether you should catch fish on spawning beds are not right in an argument about that or you can easily selena when you can easily get there. But but again. I i like i said i. I respect our our freedom speeches. An expression is an important thing. I've been in the media business my life all my life and in people have a right this year that i have i a right. The like to tune into a cheddar offer. Do whatever i want with it not read it. I can exercise my own decisions. I'm not gonna go in there in equality sponsors sponsor them. Because you're doing this dead. I never do. And i think that's something that needs to be heard and i'm glad that somebody i'm sure a few people here it on this podcast but what you said is very true. We don't need you know this. Cancel culture of of things that you know. Ripples need to be able to share and people need to be adults about it and mature enough to handle it and choose what they want to listen to what they don't. I mean that's it's it's really part of the backbone of what what our country was supposed to be about and Were anyway i do to change gears. Just a little A guy that's been really influential in my life on fishing is pat o'grady. I met pat. Oh man that's probably been twelve thirteen years ago. And he was getting his company started. And i jumped in and helped him out with. Pk lures and here. He had told stories about you coming out to wyoming and doing some fishing. I remember reading. In the law. ally wisdom books About seminole and a few things. So i just wondered if you could share a little bit about coming out to wyoming. Western space are so different than northern or ride scary. Yo it's a whole different world and you mentioned to you mentioned alluded earlier when they get used to is. Never any wind ever ending win in. I mean if you go if you're going to fish you better better get used to win. Better not bothering you. The rick the vote right the handle nbc and being a safe piece the piece of equipment. They handle wind in it. I don't know if you guys ever go through three straight days in a row word you calm day never. I don't think lever happen. I go to archery shoots. And i have people say well. I'm not shooting in the wind and they start playing. Oh the winds blow. And i said well you come to wyoming. If you don't shoot or hunt in the wind just don't go hunting joke. Defeat w. t where we go to the code is as an example. You look at the weather report the night before they they say the win the window. We from fifteen to twenty five. It means it's going to be forty plus asu. It'd be forty dollars. Plus that's what you're going to get the truth. Well you talk about seminar. That is one of the windiest places. I think in the lower forty eight. I mean the the wind speeds on that reservoir are ridiculous. But i'll tell you the fishing is phenomenal. How many winter they put around it. Yeah they put a lot of wind turbines that sucker for good reasons but those western reservoirs growth big fish. Hey we're trying to keep that a secret. Al off carp fish is amazing and even some very.

Just throw it right against the bank and start stripping out and they'd at that river this drift boat only so motorboats in that that can be a lot of fun i mean those are their sparkling out there and some of the some of the bigger systems pick the missouri river as an example for four. You've got set at saf. You've gotta wacky a. These are massive bodies of water massive massive systems and their in in in in there. I mean the small muppet. Nobody hears coast that they won't see an angler in your role year for small. Nobody'll be their four. Pack four pack is one of the most remote fisheries. I've ever been to. And i'll tell you what they're there have got to be miles and miles of shoreline that never get fished and i mean there's massive massive in their own up in way up at that even at the dry air dry air too short that is about what forty i think. That's forty miles long. And then you've got that main arms like one hundred and sixty miles long. There's very few accesses. Oh yeah you know you're right. I remember we had a pw heat from the tournament. They're in what we we got the attention that anisimov parsons weighed in. It was kabaya. They rent way when came to brought the smart in with his bad fish. So we could wait and it was like a six three or six or this. Was that smaller. That miniature scale in your macro swarm are up in san francisco. I couldn't pull about about have to lead. Somebody's somebody structures. Just drive in his crazy ton of them in there. That's an incredible says. I said there there miles up. It is the most untouched massive untouched mama. Fishing attack. the guy goes through not to mention some of the. There's one night and forget. That warned that they bleed. I think they believe their next record. Birsh sure commander there. I can't remember to saturday with no gather some wells. Old anti yeah. There's some fantastic fisheries out here. And i know just in wyoming alone. I mean you've got a number of really good reservoirs for walleye and you know a couple for small mouth that are really significant and a whole bunch that are good for trout of various species. And of course he got flaming gorge with those humongous lake trout. And that's and that's an incredible fishery to we touched on earlier smarter and they've they've kinda taken a dive the they they think that the Burbot that made their way there. Somehow somebody moved burbot down there into that drainage from apparently around this area and They just haven't they haven't done as well they they were doing really well in the early two thousands. I used to go down there with my dad and we'd catch some up to four four and a half pounds and now it's pretty hard to find them. They're still there. They're just not in the quantity that they used to be environmentally. Then yep There's something to be said for that. You know when i grew up steelhead fishing. You'd spend a lot of hours and when you finally hook into one of those thirty forty inch fish. I mean they they take you for a ride for a while but you can fish for two three four days before you even catch one hook one hook up you go small fishing and have those fisher so dang aggressive are fun. It's fun so that's one of the beauty of them. Yeah there's a there's a little reservoir here in wyoming that kicks out you around five pound fish. Pretty regularly And i i went there with a buddy of mine one time and we are fishing. Top water thing between josh. And i we we both got probably fish apiece just fishing little poppers on the surface in it was just a lot of fun and then that thing that you talked about al that happens in wyoming happened in the wind blowing really really hard to get off their old of the gun the boat for your life. Get your your jacket on. Got what. I'll tell you that much we got wet but so what's what's next. What's in the future. What's what's you know. What do you plan on. what's coming up. What are we. Should we be watching for and getting a little long into or the age also slowing down. A little bit i mean jimmy wego muskie fishing me for four hours. I ain't gonna go in our barrett fats or two pound rubber. Big thing can happen. You're only as old as you act. Al see you know strongest kid. My body doesn't want my five. You don't want to receive that. There are things that are wearing down a little think. That's wisdom speaking to abandon. No too so. I i have to pick pick and choose a little bit a little bit more but i still loved the game. I mean know as long as i can contribute that this sport in a positive way. I'm gonna do it. i'm not gonna. i'm not going to quit. I'm not gonna retire up. Going to crack back. And i mean by cutting that i wanna do more fun fishing on the shows. Jimmy jeremy that the staff and other people we work with. I'd like to see troy get a little more involved with this stuff. These guys you pick up the ball and run every night for long enough to fund fish a little bit more by that go do some things and places a lot of bodies of water that i'd like to play around a little bit now for two hundred and a lot of people don't understand that you know when you're going fishing for the weekend without a camera crew that that can be quite pleasurable when you're going filming for an episode that can be you know when you gotta redo takes a redo when you just wanna go explore to make it happen you gotta make. It's working people don't they. They sit in their living rooms and watch that and go. Oh well they were just they. Turn the camera on and went and had a fun time. There's a lot of hours behind the scenes when the cameras work was in. And then there's a year no it's addressing a lot of times a lacking half and on hot fight fetched but then when you dress the show after that. That's when you get the underwater cameras stuff out to fit. That fit the scene where the fisher coming in in to get the right drum shots environment. Those those all add to the editing and make it a little more exciting the music tracks that that go with it. you know. Music is so subtle in you know a lot of shows don't use music because you have to pay Their cost us thirty thousand dollars a year to use a music so yeah bachelor of music track because their royalties and alma my companies right in this is our very first go. My dad and i went she putting this last fall. We hired a cameraman and we took him. And i'm learning very quickly of the shortcomings of we didn't get you know. Be roll. Shot here and this extra shot here and you know getting that underwater shot or that overhead shot that you need in. It's you know it's really hard now to recreate and get those extra shots that we need to produce the film that i wanna purdue so make a real exciting piece you back. That'd be rollers goals man just putting the actual the actual easiest park. It is actually catching deficient getting their artist on films that easy. Then you've everything else is putting it together. It's all better than that anything. Sweetening the more things you have to compliment. Show the better. It becomes the up on where we're struggling. We're stretching it as as as as we can stay but it's fun man fun. It is a lifestyle worth living. Believe me i if you if you could do it. And you find a way to get your niche in their buck doing it your sizzle lifestyle business for a lot of people if you if money is your motivation and you want to get rich.

Thanks a lot. So i think we should keep rolling for a minute. We'll wrap this show up and do you have to tell a story about al. I'm really glad he came on the show. In my first and only time that i've al was i cast in twenty eleven and i was working on my laptop and i was up in the las vegas convention center and i was sitting on the side. Which is a huge building enormous. I'm sitting out and kind of of the way trying to find a quiet place. I get wifi and do some work for pat gradient. Pk lure so. I'm working on it. And i see this guy. Come out the come off the stairs. I see that it's outlander. And i'm like oh man that's that's all inter i wanna go say. Hi and say thank you. And so i get up and start to head that way and i kid you not. It was like a stampede. The ground shook. You know the sky got dark. There's all these people just came from every direction and kind of cut me off and you know it was like okay. you know. These guys are more important than me. These our sponsors. You know these are guys that have a vested interest in talking to al. And so i'm like i'll just wait here for a minute. I'm sure clear out. It didn't clear out. The mass massive people just got bigger and bigger and bigger and then that mass move down to where all the booths were. And i was like well. There goes my chance. Shake his hand and say thanks But w quicker next time patrick. Yes but now. He's got to spend an hour talking with him and he's he's a wonderful guy and he's made an impact on my life that you i can only just tell you guys that it meant a lot to me today to be able to talk to him when i was younger. My mom passed away. When i was fourteen and after my mom passed away one of my things that it was kind of an outlet for me was fishing just to get away clear my head get away from life and my dad. I remember one saturday. He took me down to cabela's in sidney nebraska which is about a hundred miles from cheyenne. So he went to sydney. Bought some fishing gear but we also went and we found that they had a rack of in fishman. Vhs tapes and books and so we picked up those things and brought it home. And i mean. I was in those things. Like you wouldn't believe you know on those rough winners of shan that i keep talking about you know with the wind. Cystic crappie fishing. That was there. And i don't mean the fish you know we we would watch those videos. And we'd get amped up for that next trip to the gorge to catch small mouth or that trip that we had that next year where. We just clobbered the ele- perch walleye at poison. So you know those kind of things really mean a lot to me and just al and just the way is just how he has so much. Fun has so much joy around fishing. It's just so inspiring to me and so having him on was a big deal. You know for me today so it was great but i learned that and positively right. Vate faith and fishing is what he said. But you if if you're not having fun in this industry and he really did hit the nail on the head. Yes it's it's nice to be able to get to a point. You could make a living at it. But if you wanna make money go to silicone valley go go go create the next app or whatever the next thing is you make money and live that lifestyle but you know he touched on it. He's been in the industry for longer than about anybody and he still working i. It's it's crazy. He's seventy six years old and he's still going and just definitely an inspiration to a lotta people and one of the things.

"Have discovered massive coral reef off the coast of Australia. It's about sixteen hundred feet tall taller than the Empire State Building and its base is nearly a mile wide. It was discovered in the great. Barrier. Reef, which is the world's largest coral reef system researchers say they were surprised and elated to stumble upon the massive underwater structure. It's the first discovery of its kind in one hundred and twenty years and scientists say it's a reminder that there's still so much.

Chasing Coral

Chasing Coral

"The documentary chasing Coral premiered in July 2017 and it is a powerful film and since we've been talking about coral reef conservation at the shop thought it would be good to do a review of chasing Coral here on scuba Shack Radio. I watched it again a few days ago and it was just as impactful as the first time I saw. The documentary was conceived by Richard veevers who is currently CEO of the ocean agency. Richard worked at a top London advertising agency before he got involved with a passion on Ocean conservation. He was working on a project called Excel Caitlin Seaview survey regarding images of coral reefs that's where he started to understand the impacts of coral bleaching. Around this time. He watched a documentary called Chasing Ice produced by Jeff orloski and chasing Coral was born. I thought I'd give some key statistics on what it took to put together chasing Coral first. It took about three years to shoot over 500 hours of incredible underwater footage off. There were Thirty countries contributing to the documentary and more than 500 volunteers involved just an incredible effort. The film won the People's Choice Award for best documentary at the Sundance Film Festival and the 2018 Emmy for Outstanding nature documentary. Jeff Orlowski was originally from Staten Island, New York. He went to Stanford to study anthropology got into filmmaking and worked on the Extreme Ice survey that turned into Chase nice in 2009. He found it exposure Labs a production company focused on socially relevant issues. So chasing Coral is really about the quest to document with imagery a coral bleaching event. By reviewing what was happening at carries forward Reef in in the Florida Keys and at airport Reef in America Samoa. They determined that they would need to build a viable underwater time lapse camera. That's when they go to a company in Boulder. Colorado called view into the blue and they were going to build a housing. That would keep it self clean. It just so happens the exact Rego works at view Into the Blue. He describes himself as a coral nerd and becomes a main player in the documentary. With the cameras developed, they deploy to Hawaii Bermuda and the Bahamas and they put down their cameras and wait a couple months to get the images. It's a failure. The images are out of focus a lost opportunity. It's back to the drawing board to fix the problems before their next attempt. The next opportunity is on the Great Barrier Reef. They head out deploy their cameras and wait a large typhoon impacts their plans. So they read the place to another Island lizard Island, but they aren't able to take any of their special cameras the team needs to do time lapse manually that means going out every day setting up the camp exactly as before and getting the photos painstaking and exhausting after more than a hundred days. They complete the work over that timeframe. The coral has bleached died and his overgrown by algae Zack is extremely emotional at this incredible loss. It's crazy to think of water temperatures at 95° Fahrenheit, but that's what it was dead. Another team went to New Caledonia where they observed an amazing phenomenon fluorescent corals an attempt to Shield itself from the temperatures an amazing sight am amazing colors just before bleaching extremely sad to see the corals stunning last gasps. The documentary continues with Zach and Richard presenting their work at the international coral reef Symposium in Hawaii the time lapse photography of the coral reef dying over a two-month period of dramatic and overpowering the reaction of the attendees demonstrates the sadness. The film wraps up with Jack diving with one of his Heroes doctor Charlie Verona Pioneer in Coral research and conservation. They are diving on a beautiful unimpacted part of the reef off Charlie reflects back on maybe he didn't do enough. Maybe we all need to do more. Corals are being assaulted on many fronts not just climate change but pollution sunscreen and carelessness citizens are trying and we need our governments to act as well. Perhaps a new day is Dawning. If you haven't yet seen chasing Coral. You can find it on Netflix. Please find a time. You won't be disappointed. If you've already watched it believe me. It's worth watching again. We can't let them

The Slow Regrowth of Vulnerable Coral Reefs is Solvable

"Minds. Sarah, Hamlin I'm a scientist Mike Marine Lab in Florida and myself is growing car rates forty to fifty times a spade that Karl grows in the wild. Now there's a number of reasons while Koru is really important I mean who doesn't love going out snorkeling and seeing colorful reefs teeming with beautiful fish but they also provide us with goods and services whether that be tourism or employment the food table. And Florida align every system he is estimated to be worth about eight billion dollars not only that but these race protect I landed property from things like storm surge. So really good example of this is Hurricane Irma which was in two thousand seventeen had twenty five foot waves heating the Florida race track down in Lewke where I am and we had a storm surge at building, which is in Summerlin K. of only five foot. So we didn't have a rift system they're healthy ray system there you can imagine that that storm surge those waves would really decimate the land. So I I can hear your Australian accent Australia of course, famous for the Great Barrier Reef what's going on with climate change and coral reefs around the world? Well, wide was seeing a great reduction in live Carl Kaba So this is across the well whether it be Australia United States or any Pacific Ocean island nations. You might have heard of coral reefs as the rainforest say and that that's saying is because even the car reefs tyke out less than one percent of the seafloor. twenty-five percent of nine marine species actually rely on car roofs. At some stage of their life we're seeing Wolmar, she anik temperatures. We're seeing a lot more pollution going into the oceans, and this is resulting in las of live Carl tissue almost as much. If any consequences of climate change, I can think of the people who are really in contact with this are shocked and appalled and upset at a level that those of us who don't come into coral on a into contact with Karl on a daily basis. I don't really get I mean I have your you're in the Florida keys I have a nephew who's into a skin diving and spearfishing in Miami and he's a young guy, and just in the years he's been doing this the coral around Miami I mean he's like shocked and upset when he sees it and says, he can't really fish anymore just because of the change in the last decade, we have lost around ninety percent of that Caro cover in the last forty or fifty years and some of the race in the. Case now or the Florida Reef tractor as low as between four and six percent starting Caro cover, which is quite loy. So we're talking on zoom you have a fantastic backdrop of coral and I don't know enough to know what kind it is but we hear these terms like staghorn coral and I heard of Elk Horn coral what are the main forms of coral that you're working with and what do they look like? We have branching corals and we have massive Carl's so branching Caro's the Stag owns the call and you. Can picture what the antlers of a staghorn or alcorn look like they look exactly like that. So skinny branch is really perfect three dimensional habitat for fish and shrimp and all the Little Rafe critters out there, and then we've got a massive Carl's and these might be brain corals essentially look like the folds and grooves of a brain stock Carl's have They polyps alike little cop. So little stars and their every feeling Carl's they the Carl's that are creating the race and really growing that lodge Rafe structure that remained stable off the storms

Recorded sounds lure fish back to Great Barrier Reef

"Healthy Coral Reef is a noisy placed the constant crackling sound. That's the sound of snapping shrimp. Then on top of that hopes grunts growls, trumpeting sounds weeping sounds. And these generally made by fish that are communicating with each other, but Steve Simpson of the university, of Exeter in the UK says after damaging coral bleaching events, which are growing more common as oceans warm that soundscape changes. When his team visited part of the Great Barrier Reef after a major bleaching event, really a shock. We found that the reefer gone quiet. It was assigned that many sea creatures had left the area. Now, Simpson team is using sound to draw some of that life back. At eleven locations in the Great Barrier Reef they played recording a healthy reap ecosystem. After six weeks compared the fish life in those places with that and other areas. They found that twice. As many fish had returned to the audio enrich sites. So Simpson says as restoration managers repair damaged corals found recordings can help jump start the process of restoring vibrant and noisy coral, reef ecosystems.

Sailing Successes: Tania Aebi & Sarah Dekker

"Forward slash bedtime. History a big. Thank you to those. Who donated already. Have you ever seen a sailboat? A sailboat is different from a motorized boat because instead of a motor it uses wind pushing the sales to move it across the water sailboats. Have been around for a very long time but people still use sailboats today to sail in places all over the ocean. Some new just for fun others do it as a race. Many world records have been set by people who've sailed boats around the entire world. Tonight we're going to learn about two women who went on at mazing adventures sailboats. Our story begins in Nineteen eighty-four with Tanya Ebi. A young sixteen year old girl. Who was living with her father when he decided to sail his boat all the way across the Atlantic Ocean with Tanya and her siblings even though they knew little about sailing they sailed from England to Spain to Portugal to Morocco. The Canary Islands the Caribbean and back to New York City after finishing high school. Tanya wasn't sure what to do with their life. It was time to go to college but she didn't feel ready for it and didn't know what else to do. Her father gave her two choices he could pay for college or she could use the money to buy a boat and sail around the world. It was a big challenge in. Tanya made the choice to start sailing. She thought she could go on it with her friends and just have a good time. No her father said you have to go on the boat alone and you have to make the voyage by yourself. He knew was a chance for her to grow on her own. So in May nineteen eighty five Tanya and her little black cat named Tarzan set sail from New York in her boat which they named the Varuna. Many people said it was too dangerous for to go but she went anyway. Tanya started the trip thinking should only sell the Bermuda then. Once she was there she headed to the next point. Which was the island of Saint Thomas in the Caribbean as she went she learned more about sailing because she had very little experience before she left. She had lots of quiet time to herself. She said was very good for her. It gave her chance to think about her life to read to play with her cat and to focus on getting to the next point of Edge sometimes. She played her guitar other time. She wrote letters one day. It began to rain and a storm surrounded her boat. We've crashed against the side of the boat and water splashed into it. She was scared and didn't know if she could continue on but she realized the only way she could survive was to keep going and she did just that for two and a half years. Tanya continued her voyage through the Great Barrier Reef Past Australia than up through the Indian Ocean the Mediterranean and finally through the Atlantic Ocean until she returned home to New York Tanya became the first woman in a very young when at that to circle the entire world on a sailboat. When the news found out about her trip people all over the world were talking about her amazing voyage. The president at the time Ronald Reagan sent her a message. Which said you set your energy in youth against an ancient challenge on the ageless sees and you triumphed twenty. Five years later a woman named Laura. Dekker wanted to break. Tania's record and be the youngest woman to circle the globe by boat. She was sixteen years old at the time Laura was born in New Zealand during a seven year sailing trip by her parents. That's right she was born during a sailing trip. The decker family was Dutch which means they were from the Netherlands. Laura spent the first five years of her life at sea and continued sailing with her father afterward. She received her first boat on her sixth birthday. And named it the Guppy. At this time she also learned how to sail the boat on her own. She would often sale by herself with her father following nearby while windsurfing when Laura was eight she received a book for her birthday called the maiden voyage written by Tanya. Happy who we learned about earlier in the story her adventures Got Laura. Thinking about making the same long trip around the earth. During the following years Laura continued to practice. She went on smaller ships by herself and continue to improve her skills see until she felt ready to circumnavigate the globe. This means to go entirely around the earth in two thousand and ten Laura finally set off. She faced many issues with the law which said she shouldn't be able to do it by herself. Many people in her country believed it wasn't safe and she shouldn't do it alone but finally she was given permission to go. She left Gibraltar in August. Two thousand ten then made a few stops until she arrived in the Canary Islands. There she waited for a hurricane to pass then she continued to cross the Atlantic Saint Martins and other islands in the Caribbean during her trip unlike Tanya. She had a gps so her parents and others were able to follow exactly where she was during her voyage. She was also much better prepared than Tanya to make the trip from the Caribbean. She then passed through the Panama Canal then the Galapagos Islands and Tonga Fiji the non to Australia next she passed the Cape of Good Hope in Africa then finally completed trip at Saint Martin. She had traveled sixty four hundred miles in one hundred twenty three days at the age of sixteen during the voyage. Laura wrote about her experiences and the news followed. What she was doing. A movie has been made about her experience called maiden trip and she wrote a book called one girl one dream. It's pretty amazing. What people can accomplish

A record-breaking year for ocean temperatures

"So this happened last week. We learned Earth's oceans. Were the warmest ever recorded in two thousand nineteen and the scientists found. The past. Ten years are are also the warmest on record that paper in the Journal Advances in atmospheric sciences included a Minnesota scientists. It's University of Saint Thomas Scientists. John John Abraham is part of the team that includes some names. Climate watchers will know Michael Man from Penn State Kevin Trenberth from the National Center for Atmospheric Research. So what does this mean for earth's atmosphere and for us here in landlocked Minnesota. We're fortunate to have study co-authored jumped Abraham here this morning to talk about that. Hi John Hey pleasure to be here Paul. And we're also thrilled to have Georgia tech climate scientists. Dr Kim Cobb here this morning. Her work includes going deep into our Russians analyzing corals deep sea sediments and cave stalagmites. Sounds Fun while come back. Kim thanks for having me and we want to hear from you This morning do you have questions about our oceans record-breaking warmth or maybe you're a Minnesotan who plans to travel back to a favourite seaside escaped this winter. What have you seen in the Russian where you visit? Give us a call and talk to these two great climate scientists six five one two two seven six thousand or toll free at eight hundred two four two two eight two eight John. Let's start with your recent study. What did you find out about earth? Oceans Will Paul in a nutshell. We found that the earth is warming alarming and it really matters So when we want to know how fast the climate's warming what we need to do is measure the amount of heat in in the Earth's climate now fortunately As the earth warms because of human heat trapping gases most of that heat ends up in the oceans in fact over ninety percent of it. So if you want to know how fast the earth is warming you've gotta measure the oceans what I like to say is global warming is ocean warming and my research team keeps track of ocean temperatures and ocean heat and we report those results each year and we found that the year two thousand nineteen set a record that record had previously been set in two thousand eighteen which by the way broke the record from two thousand seventeen so I'm sounding like a broken record but the oceans are warming their warming extremely rapidly. And what we need to know here in Minnesota as it has consequences even here though we're far away from the ocean and you had an interesting sort of nuclear clear comparison of just how much heat energy is going into the oceans. Tell us about that. Yeah that's right so the fancy term that we use to to tell people how fast the oceans oceans warming is a Zeta jewel. Now you haven't heard that in a long time if you can pull that out of a cocktail party tonight you extra bonus points but a jewel is a unit of energy. I'm not talking about a jewel on a you know jewelry or a ring or hearings but a jewel is a unit of Energy Zeta. Jewel is a one with twenty one zeros. After it I mean these are huge huge numbers so the earth warmed. Twenty eight Zeta Zeta jewels or about twenty-five Zeta Jill's last year. And I. How do you wrap your head around that? And it's crazy crazy number so I related it to the the energy released by hero Shema atomic bombs and it turns out we are heating the ocean at the rate of five Herro Shema bombs uh-huh per second per second day and night three hundred sixty five days a year so I just helps put into context the scale L.. What's happening to our Oceans Kim? As John mentioned we know that more than ninety percent of earth warming is being absorbed by the oceans. How does that extra heat impact the atmosphere and weather systems? Well it's definitely going to be the dog that wagging tail there so obviously the there's temperature globally as John said is really set by the oceans and that goes to the atmosphere as well and so we're the ocean goes the atmosphere it goes and so that is warming up the atmosphere and that causes the atmosphere to hold more water vapor which leads to one of the impacts that that we know is being caused by rising greenhouse gases which is more extreme episodes precipitation as one example of how how disconnection between the ocean and the atmosphere? And where we live is tightly linked and Kim looking at Johns recent paper here in this work. How does that dovetail with the work? You've been undoing for so many years on oceans and climate. Well definitely very closely related. So what I do is recover Corals that are growing growing in the surface ocean from data poor regions and so they make those estimates of ocean heat content from instruments like thermometers and put their monitors through the surface ocean to determine that heat content but actually if he wanted to play the current Global warming in the context text the last centuries you have to go to our guys that can push those estimates back with geological records like corals and so looking at the call records Over the last millennium which is one of my specialties from regions where we have very few instrumental records. You can clearly see that these last several centuries ah of warming this last several decades of warming. stand out like a sore thumb against the background of natural variability at these sites over the last several centuries and so that's again that kind of information that we used understand just how unusual and rapid these recent changes. It has been. Yeah so both of you. I'm hearing it's all tied together. The oceans the atmosphere. We know that. And we're still learning a lot about precisely how that works John. Is it fair to say because I'm curious about this that our ocean's ability to absorb heat may be one reason that our atmospheric warming so far has been limited to ron one degree Celsius globally. Yeah that's exactly right Paul. The Oceans Denison incredible favor by gathering this heat. And it's time now. The oceans haven't solved the problem with climate change. The only thing that's going to solve that problem is if we very quickly Reduce our missions to near zero But nevertheless the the oceans have bought US time you know. Climate scientists have been talking about climate change for a long time in fact if I were to ask people win win. The concepts concepts of global warming and understanding was set. They would be surprised that was actually in the eighteen hundreds. I mean this isn't rocket science. This is an Internet age. This is stuff that we've known for a long long long time and unfortunately we've done very little about it in the longer we delay the the harder it's going to be to take action so the oceans have done us an incredible edible favor but let's not Rely on them forever. Because as Kim mentioned that he comes out of the ocean and it drives weather the atmosphere. There is more humid now than it was before. And that is the juice that power see storms and it makes our weather more extreme. It makes things it makes weather either. Go from one extreme to the other more rapidly in Minnesota. What what are we experiencing what we know we because we can see it as we look out the window? But we're experiencing more dramatic swings in temperature more dramatic swings in precipitation. So you might get really heavy down bursts of rain with flooding. But then you might go to a hot dry period. Did and go to droughts here going from one extreme to the other and that has incredible implications for society and you know as these oceans warm. Can it reach a limit on being a heat sink. I'm curious then. What happens to the atmosphere? Could we see a more rapid atmospheric warming when the ocean sort of hit their limit. John can you jump in on that real quick. I can't and it's almost like you are a member of my research team and I have you been spying on me. I should be so fortunate. So wh WHOA. The one of the important things at the ocean is able to bring heat from the surface water down to the deeper depths and we liked that because it it pulls heat away from the atmosphere and there are parts of the globe where ocean waters will fall from the surface down to the bottom of their other parts of the globe or a waters waters will rise. What we want to know is will that process continue And will we get to a situation where there's a stratification nation that means the layers are more or less constant we experiences in Minnesota. We have Kim. You may not know this. We're called the land of ten thousand lakes but I've heard we have something like seventeen. Thousands of MINNESOTANS really understand water inversions in water temperatures in lakes and that happens in the ocean and if that stratification Asian changes if the ability of the ocean to bring heat down changes then we could be inferred even wilder ride and the reason why I mentioned our research. Is We actually have a paper submitted on that topic Kim you mentioned corals you study those where are we at with coral bleaching and death in Earth's oceans today and where are we headed current trends. Continue well certainly. We've seen a really sobering last several years with year on year bleaching across the great eight bear reef But the record for the extent of Global Bleaching and mortality in the corals is really remains twenty sixteen which which is currently by the way still holds the number one place for global temperatures on record Only second only well of course. Twenty nineteen is second only to twenty sixteen in that in that statistic so for corals we've seen real decimation of some sites that may never be the same Besides like my research site in the middle of the Pacific Ocean which was devastated by that? Twenty Sixteen El Nino event compounded by The the ocean warming that we've been talking about and of course going forward Projections show that we're going to lose. Maybe the vast majority of current Ryan Tropical Reef perhaps as early as twenty fifty if we do not take aggressive action to curb emissions immediately. And so you hear a a lot of News coming out every year in the Great Barrier Reef researchers studying the follow on impacts of these massive coral bleaching and mortality than. I'm hitting things like the ability of coral larvae to settle and be successful after these successive events Really understanding that. It's not just the one hit that they take it's really The beginning of the ecosystem collapsing on itself and a number of horrible feedbacks taking place and and so That's something that I think. People don't understand is as well as they need to in the sense that corals are not just Pretty place to die which is where most of us fell in love with these things but they really provide a huge range of ecosystem services that are incredibly valuable to us as a planet including supporting Global fisheries providing protein for a billion people Even in so far as drug discovery for some of our most advanced drugs today so again Really horrifying news from the frontlines of ocean warming with very vulnerable ecosystems.

Scientists lured fish back to The Great Barrier Reef by making it sound alive

"Climate change ocean acidification and pollution causing major damage to the coral reefs so how do you save a reef and bring it back well researchers have an away trip fish into thinking the coral is alive and Derek harkens take a closer look for The Washington Post and talked about it with almost Taylor band size what do these researchers do to bring the fish to the dead coral what's really fascinating study that they undertook these researchers still thirty three experimental reef patches in this cracked a brief in the Great Barrier Reef in shallow waters and the the place when they built these patches out of debt quarrel there about two meters by two meters and they placed loudspeakers in some of them simply to audio recordings of help you reach and in others the control respect in planning records and what they found after studying this for about six weeks was that there were twice as many fish that were attracted to the experimental reached with the sounds of the healthy reefs as opposed to the others and this is just an incredibly encouraging results for conservationists scientists anybody who wants to try to counteract the effects of re degradation and climate change that are ravaging all over the world especially the Great Barrier Reef when I think of what life sounds like under water I just think of a lot of wishing what what does a healthy reef sound like that's a great question nine and it's something that I wasn't even aware of until I started covering the story so you know the researchers noted that research noisy places you've got the kind of crackle of current progress stations you've got the swoosh on the grounds of different fish moving about and this is gonna sound different for us than it is for the the fish and other wildlife shot to securing and and and such is the tune specifically to pick these things up and so for for your average fish if they are going to be able to hear or sense the vibrations of other animals brief not gonna be able to tell that this is a you know an ecosystem with a lot of marine life and such and so it's going to sound different for the creatures that live in it than it does for us and so you know when it's deadly quiet other than those that you and I gonna get all the places where there's other activity because again this is a incredibly diverse and delicate ecosystem are the most diverse on the planet in fact and so the the couple made by abrasions they use their hearing to tell where the other wildlife is and apparently this this is actually curvature on this case this was not something were to pick up on any word at this point on how long they expect to to test this out were widespread use perhaps in the future well that's going to be the key right can they replicate this on a large scale the the reach they created to test this and more again these experimental reef patches you know again the result star super promising but I think if they can replicate this and if they can do it in for example the naturally occurring reef that will be the real test of whether the of of how effective a solution this really is a fascinating study to be sure you can read all about it online at washingtonpost dot com gear Caulkins with that report thanks Derek this call was Taylor
