"The question, can we conquer? Any problem is is a compelling one because certainly from the perspective of so many of the problems that we face as humankind their problems that were created by humans, right? And so from that perspective, we should have the capacity to be able to solve it. But as you're doing that, this question of are you identifying the right problem to solve, right? I can think of so many examples of that where we dive in as a society towards one particular focal point. But it turns out that the real lever to make change is over here and birth. Any examples of that. But I'd say the other question is, who's involved in coming up with a Solutions, right? Who are you solving the problem for? And that I would say we have so much more work to do as a society to fulfill that obligation. That, when we're solving problems, it's solving problems for all and which problems are we prioritizing, right? I mean, in Cleveland, when you look at problems around LED right in paint and pipes, when you look at maternal and infant mortality in our African American Community here in Cleveland, it's dire. It's unacceptable, right? And so, we're actually asking ourselves this question in in the city of Cleveland right now because there's additional stimulus, money coming to the city and who is part of those conversations to say you know what choice mortality maternal death rate in Cleveland put them up top. There's so many other problems we could solve around Transportation around access. There's no shortage of problems that need to be solved but the challenge I would say. And and the one where I'm less optimistic is how quickly we will get better at prioritizing what we're solving. Yeah. That's really interesting. This is Wayne Parker with the stories here podcast. I'm Tom today to dr. Kirsten ellenbogen, who is the president and CEO of the amazing. Great Lakes Science Center in Cleveland here. So, when you spoke at the City Club of Cleveland, at least one time you, you talk about this being your dream job. So could you describe for us what a dream day is like at the center anyone in in a museum? CEO Position will tell, you know, day is the same. And so let me tackle a bit of why I'd say it is a dream job and it has a great deal to do with the community that I'm in the organization that was created, Cleveland is full of a lot of passionate people are, people want to have the hard conversations more so than other cities that I've been in and in particular, the willingness to roll up your sleeves and get things done. And it means that the kind of organization wage, Culture that I really believe in which is a all hands on deck. Roll up your sleeve, get it done. If it's one of our big free days, if it's a big event going on, or a big program, going on every single job description, at our organization, includes the expectation that you play a role in these big dates. It means when we have a holidays right, which are not the time when we get vacation, you know, if you're at a cultural attraction, holidays, tend to be your busiest days. So we get time off before and after that holiday, but around the holidays, you know, that list gets circled through the whole building and every single one of us is taking on Thursday to help out with a really oversized crowds, we get during those holiday periods. And that means that if, you know, you come in on one of your free days or on a holiday, the person that's doing the vacuum chamber demonstration over at the educational cart over there is likely our Director of Finance and the person who gave you your wristband. When you came in, might have been me. It's exciting to be in a computer. City where we can create that, organizational culture pretty easily. Another reason it's a dream job is there's so much more that Great Lakes Science Center can do in the community were extremely well. I mean that physically, right being part of Cleveland's Economic Development effort on the lakefront to really build up downtown, we finally reached the point of hitting 20,000 residents in downtown Cleveland. I know if you're in other cities, that sounds small, but there's been a huge growth in downtown residency, and, and that was a stated goal, a lot of organizations got behind it. You know, I chair this committee for the downtown Cleveland Indians, that brings together all the different groups working in downtown, to make sure we're coordinating in across projects. That was a concerted effort and the more that down town, population grows, that starts to shift. What Great Lakes science center is, right? We're not just a place for people to drive in and see or get on the school bus or take the RTA to the public transportation stuff. That's nearby. It also log Where a site where someone might be just walking their dog from home, right? Or stopping by to see a movie in the evening after dinner so I can give you so many examples but as Cleveland chefs, there's so many opportunities for Great Lakes Science Center to play a role on that. And most of all those hard questions, the ones we have talked about in in terms of really addressing racial disparities that is such an important place for us to be and we are welcome at that table and not every city thinks, broadly and is willing to include cultural attractions like Great Lakes Science Center in some of those conversations. And in Cleveland, you're usually one phone call away from the person you need to reach. This is very much a a small town from that perspective. So now what that is. To Kirsten ellenbogen, she is the president and CEO at the Great Lakes Science Center. In Cleveland has been so fun when our conversation ranged from strategic business plans to your upcoming trip into space wage And field trips and everything else. So we really do appreciate and want to extend our, thanks to you and your staff and your volunteers and your donors and the city officials, and everybody else that had made, the Great Lakes Science Center, such a special place, and it's been really fun to talk to you today and learn about that. But about also so much more in your insights on so many things. So thank you for everything. Thank you Wayne. It's been a treat to talk about it and I look forward to listening to more of your podcasts. Thank you for listening

"And so when you think of field trip at Great Lakes Science Center, it's really changed over the past eight years to be a program. We are so proud of and our field trips with cmsd are probably, the ones that are most extraordinary. We work with the district to identify the actual content and curriculum area. They want us to focus on, it's usually connected issue with not just standards, but also testing coming up for those students and particularly areas where the teachers have said this stuff, we're less comfortable with. So we have an engineering design program, and it sucks, it's for every single sixth grade classroom in Cleveland, and they work on designing, wind turbine blades, they actually test them and then redesign those blades. So, really going through an engineering design process. We work with every seventh grade classroom and they are coming to the Science Center and making their own flashlights. And let me tell you, we just put a pile of wires batteries, switches off. Got a build a working flashlight, from that pile of material. And let me tell you the kids that the teachers walk in expecting to be most successful or not necessarily the ones that are most successful at it off with an important program, to see some students really flourish who have not been in a situation where they shine before and our eighth grade program is the newest. And and that is with every single eighth-grader getting closed. As we move out of piloting, the program we are working with them. On what what's data, what are data, variables coding internet-of-things blockchain databases and cybersecurity and suck. These content areas. I tell you most of the adults are run into don't know what they are. Nobody understands and cares about privacy security more than a teenager and getting an eighth grade. At a creative Peak and an ability to really say, let's dive in and understand this technology, we want them when they go off to college, to be able to sit down that first day flip open their lap book or whatever device you're using by that, sit elbow-to-elbow with another student and hold their own around Advanced Technologies. Every Cleveland student is capable of that the 8th grade they're here on Mondays in the fall when we close to the public and they're here for multiple days, they really take over the science center, they own it. They really have a feeling of ownership or the science center and over their capacity to do stem. I'm curious what you were, like at that age. And you, you went off to University of Chicago and then you went to Vanderbilt and you got your Ph.D there and were you, would you have considered yourself a nerd. You social where you both? What were you like in eighth grade? Well, I will tell you a seventh grade was definitely the peak of my awkward awful. Middle School years, eighth grade was saved. I finding a core group of friends that I'm still friends with them today and it's a good reminder of how much the social part of how we support our students is critical. I would have told you in eighth grade that needed to be a lawyer, I come from a big family, my grandfather was a lawyer. I like to argue I was pretty sure that's what I should do. I loved the science fairs. I did a lot with science. I just wasn't thinking about that as a career. I mean, I loved science. I built stuff in the basement. My mom had done a lot of chemistry so you know, she was very tolerant of random explosions in the house. But for some reason, like the job that was in front of me that, you know, you could be a teacher or a doctor and nurse a lawyer. So I was thinking about being a lawyer and that really lasted until sophomore year of high school. And I, I went to the great Cast Tech in Detroit. Wonderful, Detroit Catholic school and mrs. Benson tap me on the shoulder and said, you should really apply for this. They're hiring kids for these after school and summer, jobs to work at local labs and I said, well, I'm doing like the birth 8 club and the law program and she's like, no, no, no look at how much they're paying per hour for this job and it was a lot more than I was making at jeans and things at the time. Let me tell you, so I applied because the Boss look good. And boy, I tell you, it just sucked me in. I love working in a lab. So it sounds like if she had told her someone had told you that that moment that you were going to be doing what you're doing now, wage and the level of surprise on the scale of one to ten with ten. Being the most surprised sounds like you would have been pretty high on that scale very high. In fact, the Detroit Science Center was pretty fledgling at that point and I've got pulled into the science center world will still in high school because I was working at the Michigan Cancer Foundation. And that after school job, I competed in the science fair, and you can imagine if you're working in a lab for your job, I was able to do some wonderful things in the science fair. And one of the judges Corey Van fleet was president of the new Detroit Science Center. He walked up to me and he said, hey, John job like this way, you stand here and you talk about science, that's what I need song. I know you're working across the street from the science center at the Cancer Foundation. We could work out a schedule. So that you're doing some hours there, some hours at the science center cuz like, oh, that sounds cool. So really a lot of moments where people Pat me on the shoulder and I'm very, very grateful for that. Well, I love hearing those. It's kind of an origin story in a sense, right? Of what was the origin of this direction that you've taken? And then at what point in time? Did you think about this specifically the kind of work that you're doing now? Is there some later? Aha moment. Did you said, you know I really want to be in that field full time. It was a gradual development, I would say wage, I started out in the Detroit Science Center working in education and doing programs. I did a similar job at the Field museum over the summer when I was in college same thing. Capital Children's Museum page was an education for a number of years. I started a dip

"Now, it is rumored definitely, and I have to think that, you know, our astronauts are can be looking forward to that. We also speak in a room. We have a one-to-one model of the old Gemini capsules, right? And it's part of all that we have in our Visitor Center, about astronauts Senator John, Glenn, and the amazing work that he's done and all the pride we have for him here in Ohio. So we have a model that you can actually hop in yourself and think about right more than 50 hours. He spent going around her that first flight. The Gemini capsules off. Believable and so are you an excited and interested viewer when those launches happen today? I am I love seeing them. I love that. We're back to having them more common and the changes in launching or you know, now we have Rockets returning to Earth, that's just such a change in a short amount of time. The Partnerships that NASA has been pulling into really shift the way we're taking humans into space, really exciting. So the center real moves from as it were moved from space to the ocean, I was curious about the Mather steamship, tell me what that's about she's she's more than six hundred feet long and is a vital part of Cleveland's history. Very much trapped in into our stem history around mining around iron around steel and just so, you know, there was a local non-profit that was carrying for that Great Lakes steamship for many years. And they were looking for a partner and, you know, we were in the right place and and again, I'd say it's a big prob. Us being rate on the lakefront getting people down to the lake front. So the steamship William G Mather is absolutely ours. We're we're not able to operate the steamship, you know, it's not as bad as having a page with the covid-19 in in place, but it gets pretty complicated to operate. Some of these historic vessels when we've got covered for Texans in, but it's a, it's a much beloved part of Cleveland's history, and we're honored to play the central role in keeping that alive. Good for you. And this is Wayne Parker with the stories here podcast. I'm talking to dr. Kirsten ellenbogen, who is the president and CEO wage, Great, Lakes Science Center. And boy if we talked about all the facets of the center we be here all day. I did want to ask who I'm going to give you two words and I'd love to hear. You're just the immediate reaction that you have off the top of your head when I say field trip. Sure. So when I moved to Cleveland in 2013 for this job, I met with our CEO wage Cleveland Metro School District really within my first month or so. And he sat me down and said, pretty frankly, you're not doing enough. And this is a real education leader, who said, Eric Gordon is his name will not accept the typical one-and-done field trip. And so when you think

"Welcome to the stories here podcast. If I'm looking to pass on advice to parents or children, I, I think I would come back to our tag line, which is stay curious. And you can't overemphasize curiosity enough. And you can call this steam if you want, you can call curiosity and arts skill. You can call it an engineering skill it's just a skill that is so critical. That was dr. Kirsten ellenbogen president of the Great Lakes Science Center in downtown Cleveland Ohio on the shores of Lake Erie and this is the stories here podcast and I'm your host Wayne Parker. There are so many freaking stories in this episode. Thank you for listening. You're involved in so many different things in the city, including your rock and roll kind of person. Right? I'm honored to serve on the board of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. They're our next door, neighbors and their CEO serves on my board. That's awesome. And they were part of one of the hosts of the recent NFL draft, we all on North Club. Harbor the Cleveland Browns, The Rock Hall and Great Lakes Science Center together with the sports commission for our region. The Greater Cleveland sports commission. Just finished hosting. In fact, they are still moving out of the science center today, the 2021 NFL Draft. So the draft was actually at the science center also, well, we have seven acres on the lakefront. So it's hard to do something on the lakefront without being on our property in some way. So part of the NFL Fan Experience was on our property, some of that was also in the stadium itself and then our entire building was turned into the NFL draft Media Center. You catch this on the news afterwards after someone's drafted, they kind of walked through. It's actually called a carwash. So they walk from interview to interview to interview each of those little Studios was set up in our traveling exhibit, hall was dedicated to that and our entire second floor where we normally have our science, phenomena exhibits, we're cleared of exhibits. And instead became offices for all the media who have been moving in over the past couple of weeks off. So there's a connection between the NFL draft and science. Isn't that wonderful? And a great way to start our conversation. And another thing to mention is congratulations are in order. I think Center is a five-digit list for the national medal for Museum and Library services. And that's a really big deal, right? It is the biggest deal for us. I mean, serving our community where a very regionally focused organization and there's nothing more important to us and serving our community. There's really no greater honor for us, we're regionally focused non-profit. We are here to serve our community and so to get nominated for something and and to be in a finalist position for an honor, it is very specifically for how you're serving the community. That's the Pinnacle for us and we love this year. It's really focused on honoring organizations that have done a lot around emerging technology, big specialty of ours and the work we've done during the pandemic, so it's perfect. Well, I should also say it's May 5th. Happy National astronauts day if I got today, right? And that's a dog. And talking to you, because Center is the host for the NASA Glenn Visitor Center and you have an Apollo Command Module, right there, right? We do from a 1973 mission to Skylab right predating, the International Space Station and we had an astronaut, very near and dear to our hearts today. Really two astronauts featured in our programming. Not only Doug Wheelock Wheels as he's known who's done a lot of work now, it's Johnson and and with Glenn, our local Research Center, which is right in here in Cleveland, but also doctor guy Bluford, and he is an astronaut, he's from Pennsylvania, but he is lived in Cleveland since retiring from NASA just such an inspiration. First African American in space, he comes in and talks with students in the school at m, c squared stem that's located at Great. Lakes Science Center, he participates and so much programming for us. Just a real hero. So now the key question, if you knew it would be safe and you would come back all in one piece, would you go? That's such a good question. We're going to the moon and we are young. We're going to have the first woman and the first person of color walk on the surface of the Moon and sure if I could get a seat on that ride. Absolutely. I mean what a thrill, I would have to really hone my skills. My background is in neuroimmunology, which is probably going to be absolutely useless for a trip to the moon. We need some mineralogists flight, Engineers, all Specialties that are not mine, but what's going to be interesting is a NASA astronaut. Corps is really going to start to broaden and, and diversify in so many ways. Not just in who we see represented in the astronaut Corps but also in the different kinds of skills. As we look up to Mars and moving away from just a focus on the International Space Station, but going to the moon and going to, Mars really will shift who gets pulled in. It's exciting and we will link to it in the show notes, so that people haven't seen it. They will see a picture of the Apollo Command Module, that's there and your science center. And one of the things that they've seen photographs lately, are they've seen video lately of the launchers, They will notice there's a little difference in Comfort inside, they've given the astronauts a little more space. These days when you first saw that, did you note the difference from The Command Module? That's there at the center extraordinary and generally the shuttle system was a lot roomier. Certainly than the Apollo capsules. One of the fascinating things though is to look at how similar, Orion, you know, that'll take us to the moon and take us to Mars. That's so similar to the Apollo capsules. Now, it is rumored definitely,
Wet Notes - 4-23-21
"This is wet notes for april twenty third. Two thousand twenty one here on scuba shack radio. I up just after i recorded. The last episode president biden released his two thousand and twenty two budget. Well if you're a fan of the national oceanic and atmospheric administration or noah. You'll be happy in the budget. Proposal released on april ninth. The president proposed a record budget of six point. Nine billion dollars for knowing now. How does that compare well. This year knows budget is four point. Six billion wow. that's big increase. This budget really supports taking action. On climate change protecting marine mammals the ocean great lakes and coastal communities. If you recall the previous administration has proposed cutting knows budget only to have it restored by congress. Now this is just a first step in the budget proposal. It has a long way to go to get congressional approval. But i think it's a very good first step now. Here's something that's really interesting. I read this in the cayman compass online. It's about a grand cayman. Northside family found a message in a bottle. Yeah on easter. i think it was. The family was out walking on a remote part of the island. A place called the parrot sanctuary. I think this is on the east end. Well that's where patricia dacosta her family recovered an emerald colored bottle with a handwritten message inside the note said thrown into the ocean on six december. Two thousand and seventeen somewhere between the bahamas and florida. If you find this drop us a line and let us know where it ended up. Signed by darren and shannon from evansville illinois and it gave them their email address so patricia them with the news and now darrin shannon are planning to visit grand cayman at some point as for the bottle. The dacosta family's planning to put their own note in the same bottle and send it back out to see what an incredible journey. It's here the second quarter edition of the journal of diving history magazine. It arrived in the mail just after the last show. This latest additions cover story was written by chris. Cole and it is about the divers who worked on the edgewater disaster. It was one of the worst maritime disasters in us history. I'll leave it at that and you can do some of your own research but it was a really interesting article. There's also an interview in the edition. Done by michael newdow with dick rakowski and he's dubbed. The father of nighthawks again. Some really interesting stuff. I highly recommend that you take a look at the historical diving. Society's website if you become a member you'll get the journal mail to you every quarter a pleasant surprise in your mailbox. I received an email from a friend a few weeks ago with the subject line serenity so who can't use a little serenity how about serenity now well it turns out that my friend was asked by our son to watch him cameras for a school project. These live cams were from the monterey bay aquarium so i went to the link and it took me to their landing page for nine different cameras. I'm not going to list them all right now. But you can peek. In on their penguins. Sea otters were moon jellies. There's even a camera for monterey bay itself personally. I like to observe my sealife while diving but these live cams from monterey bay aquarium can fill in and provide that little bit of serenity. Now here's something interesting. That came in from shearwater. You know the makers of the dive computers. They have a contest. It's going to be starting up. In may called the spring shopping spree and the winner will get four thousand nine hundred ninety nine dollars shopping spree at the dive shop of their choice. And here's how it works if you purchase the shearwater in april or if you buy one in may you can register for the contest with their online portal with a proof of purchase. But you don't have to buy a computer to participate. You also be able to register by completing a short fifty word essay on why you like shearwater computers. The lucky winner will be selected at the end of may. And it's another great way to support your local dive shot. Thanks your water for doing this. And finally there was a short article from patty on april twentieth about their meeting with the maldivian government to confirm the protection for sharks. There was some speculation out there that the maldivian government might be lifting the shark fishing ban in their countries waters. Well this can't be good over ten years ago. Patty along with others helped to establish this current protection so the patty staff met with the moldavian ministry of fisheries marine reserves and agriculture's lead zaha wahid. Well here's some good news here at the meeting minister while he said that they were committed to sustainable and responsible management on april twentieth the ministry released a statement that said the maldives does not intend to permit a targeted shark. Fishing in the mouth. These great job. Patty in great job maldives for protecting these critical apex predators. Well that's it for wet notes. For

And today on climate cast. What are longer term lake superior ice trends telling us about climate change in the upper midwest professor j austin researchers all things lake superior with the large lakes observatory at the university of minnesota duluth high. Welcome back to climate cast. Thanks for having me on paul. Let's start with this past winter. What was notable with ice cover on lake superior It was a really unusual year very low ice covered starch and we had that remarkable cold air in february and we ended up with fleetingly above average ice levels superior and just as remarkably. They went away really quickly. And how does this fit with the longer term ice trends that you're seeing on lake superior and the great lakes. I expect that we're going to see Significantly lower than average ice cover this year and basically since about nineteen ninety eight.

"Climate change in minnesota costing you. Let's ask mark colder. He's the vice president of public affairs at the insurance federation of minnesota. I'm mark welcome to climate cast.

We had three significant storms including one on may thirtieth that was part of the southern great lakes to ratio. That storm cost nine hundred million dollars in insured losses and those three storms together in one thousand nine hundred cost one point five billion dollars and that's important because that one point five billion dollars in losses is more than the previous forty years combined and since then as you just noted it really hasn't stopped so this is almost becoming an annual thing. Isn't it it is. It's about every other year. We see and just in two thousand seventeen on june eleventh. There was a large hail storm. It was a very brief storm. Only about a half hour or so. It hit the northwest suburbs of the twin cities brooklyn park and coon rapids. It seemed like it was a minor thing that ended up being three point. Two billion dollar insured losses catastrophe. It was the most expensive storm in state history and the tenth most expensive storm in the world that year and so when these storms happen know the insurers pay for it when the insurance pay for it that means policyholders pay for it

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.

If you went to make a living a good comfortable living in deficient indiscreet. I don't hurt my myself and i know many people that you and i do not that then ended the business row ripley. 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.

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.

But we're reading and got in fake cockney kakatua water are you talk about a memorable experience with that and You know where he's been everywhere to do everything. Yeah yeah you know. He's still thought at their daddy issues. Deck it was unbelievable scene and fifty three inch this. We figured it was mid thirty pounds. You know thirty five thirty eight pounds something again. Maybe it was. It was jackie gigantic for bike. That was half water. Fish birds played beat of ball. That would be. That would be a lot of fun. I now i'm like. Wow that sounds like a blast. 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. I'm a small mountain. i love smart fishing. The small mouth world small mouth. Fishing is as popular as it's become the tournament organizations. That have the come up north and since two small fishing and a great lakes and now they're coming everywhere yet yet you know you get to experience it in tournaments Love it the small mouth. Fishery that exists. West of the mississippi river is still some of the most unexplored smart fishing in north america systems. I can't you're innocent. At west of the river or to western states many of those reservoirs got phenomenal phenomenal. Nominal bishop i. I liked to tell the story. I've told a couple of times there's a. there's a river in oregon. I won't give the name but an all out to you. We drift boat floated at one day. And i hooked sixty small mouth in a day and i got tired of jagan forum. So i put on a mouse pattern. I tied and i caught. You know half a dozen small. He's on a mouse pattern. 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. Don't come fishing industry and here's a lifestyle some of us. I mean you could make a good comfortable but if money is silicon valley and they live in that world out there if you want to be able to go out and enjoy the great outdoors and have a comfortable lifestyle. Fishing industry in hunting industry. Got a better choice. you will never regret. it couldn't couldn't goodness it better myself. I have one more question and this is a really important question.

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.

All but unchecked by law and regulation the so-called duopoly of google and facebook valued at just under two trillion dollars between them control thirty five percent of the six hundred billion dollar global advertising market. Not to mention evermore of our personal lives. This is harvard. Professor emeritus shoshana zubov in the documentary. The social dilemma. Facebook discover that they were able to affect real world behavior and emotions without ever triggering. The users awareness. They are completely clueless in the past. Ten days came a storm first week before last. Forty eight states and territories along with the federal trade commission filed suit against facebook that suit alleges that facebook bought up rivals with the explicit intention of stifling competition legal filings include an email from mark zuckerberg in two thousand eight in which he allegedly said quote. Better to buy than to compete. And then this past week. A second thunderclap. When texas's attorney general announced new antitrust charges against google the suit claims that google in a conspiracy with facebook abused its market power to chip away at consumer privacy protections and rig the advertising market. But if you think they trust busting senator. Sherman has come out from decades of hiding. That's not quite the case for decades. Antitrust doctrine has been fixated to the exclusion of everything else on harm to the consumer as measured by out of pocket costs social media mind control and the erosion of democracy do not fit into that calculation that sort of the traditional metric that we've used to bring antitrust cases and to really understand and measure consumer harm. It's been those price hikes that really hit consumers pockets Vossen author of the twenty two thousand nine paper. The antitrust case against facebook and illegal consultant in texas suit is on the leading edge of an evolved antitrust doctrine based on harms not necessarily inflicted at the cash register for example invasion of privacy on a grand scale. I just found it so interesting. You know why is it that the communications utility in the twenty first century that all consumers use essentially conduct something similar to surveillance. You sign up for facebook and facebook not only monitors your communications on facebook but even when i go to for example the new york times in the morning facebook is making a record of that and it is extracting from consumers the permission to basically track them across the internet. And it didn't seem obvious to that. Consumers would sign up for that proposition is something that they really liked. It's also a bit ironic. Because as i understand it. In the beginning. Facebook was favorably compared to. Let's say my space in early social network where your personal profile was at least one point. Public and facebook was theoretically an antidote to that. That's right if you go back in history you see how. Facebook entered the market with very firm. Privacy promises it got users to choose facebook over other competitors in the market and only after it gained market power and competitors exited the market. Was it finally able to extract this sort of surveillance term from consumers a large and you contract that facebook's growth goes up privacy protections straight down that's right and the fascinating thing about the new york attorney general's suit last week. Is that internal communications. Confirm that that's indeed. How facebook internally was considering strategic moves about decreasing users privacy. I don't remember another case that has been brought in a market where the price is zero and the government is deciding to defend the people based on things like a lack of innovation in the market. A lack of choice. Everybody uses facebook to stay in contact with their friends and family. And then just privacy harms.
Feds to delay seeking legal protection for monarch butterfly
"Despite its declining population the Associated Press has been told the monarch butterfly will have to wait several years more to receive protection under the Endangered Species Act the US fish and Wildlife Service will consider the monarch butterfly and candidate for designation as threatened or endangered but there are other species in line ahead of it Charlie Wooley who's the head of the agency's Great Lakes regional office says the monarch status will be reviewed each year a virgin see action could be taken earlier but plans now call for proposing to list the orange and black butterfly in twenty twenty four scientists estimate the monarch population in the eastern United States has fallen about eighty percent since the mid nineteen nineties while the drop off in the western part of the country has been even steeper I'm showing up there

"great lakes" Discussed on Newsradio 700 WLW
"The wake of this disrupted winter storm that moved across the Great Lakes midweek backside of the storm that's where you've got the strongest west to northwest winds this kicking up the lake effect snow that's going to continue through the day today and maybe even into Saturday and we've talked in recent nights about the lakes began nearly ice free of the lecture wide open and that's why you give me a typically you don't see these kind of lake effect snow this time of year get a lot more ice coverage but it's been a relatively mild winter so we haven't seen the lakes freeze over the accu weather forecast predicts that though the wind flow over the lakes in such a way that those bands are gonna track across multiple lakes which that's gonna lead to snowfall rates of two to as much as three inches of snow per hour as we progress on through the day Friday lovely isn't it are in the south tonight we're not there we've seen a bit of a break from rains in recent days we do have a a little bit of rain falling tonight from about Springfield Missouri over into southern portions of Illinois and that's all kind of drifted off to the south east even though the rain has been less frequent over the south of the Ohio valley in recent days looks like a stormy pattern during the first week of March may once again aggravate the flooding situation now this is going to evolve as the the cold air that settled over the eastern half of the country this week begins to retreat northward a large portion of the south central and south eastern states as well as lower parts of the Midwest I have been targeted by relentless rain throughout this winter some places in from Mississippi to Kentucky and Indiana of picked up anywhere from two to three times their normal rainfall and not only since the start of this year but going back to late twenty nineteen well we've been watching Jackson Mississippi where the Pearl River flooding forced evacuations earlier this month Birmingham Alabama has picked up twenty six point one seven inches of rain since the start of December I mean we're talking nearly double the normal range even every is further north including the likes of Indianapolis rainfall it's been nearly two times that of average since the first of the year in Indy you've picked up nine point two inches of rain so far this year so with each progressing storm you get the run off not only resulted in flash flooding but you get the river flooding major river flooding has occurred along portions of the Pearl River the lower Mississippi in the lower Ohio rivers just to name a few of the large rivers dealing with flooding so during the upcoming week well this is what they're anticipating doesn't look good as a series of storms could bring a general two to four inches of rain with some totals approaching seven inches of rainfall and that may occur over a large swath of the area that's already been hit hard with radiance offloading this winter storm's projected to move along the frontal zone that's going to set up a roughly from stretching from Texas all the way up to Maine during the early and middle portions of next week there's the risk that much of the projected rainfall may occur during the twenty four hour period or less next Tuesday into Wednesday that means torrential rains that would be a greater mechanism for flooding as opposed to if you could extend it out evenly over three or four day period the bulk of the rain but the upcoming events so likely to avoid part of the southeastern corner of the country but probably not soul further west and inland over the south many rivers of already crested following the siege of rain from January to early February but over the next several days crests are forecast to occur on portions of rivers just inland from the coast like Savannah Alabama a pearl of the pearl the noose and Mississippi rivers.
"great lakes" Discussed on Science Friday
"Christy Taylor talking about Dan. Egan book the death and life of the Great Lakes Christine. Yeah so we're talking about the future of the Great Lakes after centuries of environmental challenges and change with our guests Peter Annan director of the Mary Griggs Burke Center for Freshwater Ecology over at Northland College in Ashland Wisconsin. He's also the author of the Great Lakes Water wars. Dr Donna Cassian Professor Freshwater Ecology at Wayne State University in Detroit. So we've already established that the Great Lakes are pretty. Well loved by the people who live near them. They're beautiful. They offer a source of drinking water food commerce and of course recreation and tourism and country pretty deep partisan. Divide right now. It's noteworthy when something has bipartisan support. The president for example has for the first time in his time in office suggested increasing the budget for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative to three hundred twenty million dollars three hundred million dollars. It's also not just the Great Lakes that people have feelings about though on the science Friday. Vox Pop APP. Listeners sent us all kinds of memories of time they have spent with water. I still get the shivers remembering an eight-year-old one morning on a canoe trip in the boundary waters. The predawn miss cover the lake and the dead. Silence is broken by the Eerie haunting lamenting call of the lone loon. Thanks to Andrew from Albuquerque for that submission to the science Friday. Vox Pop up Peter it. Do you think that there's a reason why people have this really strong emotional connection to bodies of water? Why are they so charismatic for us well especially in the Great Lakes? You know the magnitude of these water bodies has just really amazing and you know a lot. Most of the people of course live in these urban areas which are heavily developed and and but a huge portion of the watershed is wilderness. Especially on the Canadian side. Some of its low w wilderness. That's not federally federally designated. But I'll Royal National Park and Lake Superior Apostle islands in Lake Spirit places like that are federally designated wilderness and these are just magical places to visit especially during peak seasons. You want to avoid peak bug season for example. But there's many many months when they're just stunningly beautiful places and they have people have formative sometimes life changing experiences or at least experiences like that person's anecdote in boundary waters and they remember that for forever and it's really really telling about the power and the magnitude of these globally significant water bodies. I want to read a tweet. We got from Stacey. She says my sister is facing a hundred thousand dollar bill to move her house. That's been there. Since the fifties back from the Bluff Lake Michigan presumably because of erosion and high water levels. And then we also have a call from Madeleine ministy national forest. Go ahead Madeline yes. I wanted to comment that houses all along. We're on the eastern shore of Lake Michigan and lately. The winds have been much stronger than usual several times a year. We get sixty sixty five mile an hour and occasionally ninety mile an hour winds and the homes are falling into the lake all the way I know from Holland all the way up the eastern coast. I don't know whether they are farther down. Thank you for calling in so that turns me to a question I had for for you. Peter you wrote an entire book about the Great Lakes Compact which is agreement among the Great Lakes governments Basically about who can take water from the lakes which was supposed to protect against Thirsty State is taking all the water out of the lakes with level. So high. Is that really? Do you think that's a legitimate concern? Right now yeah. I think it will always be a legitimate concern. I I don't think it's in the interests of the Great Lakes to get people outside the watershed addicted to the water because the levels are going to go back down and again the natural variability that Don and I've been talking about is really important to the ecosystem as I said always has driven humans crazy in some cases some people whose homes are falling into the lakes too close to the shoreline in other cases as the caller mentioned. We're seeing documented higher winds on the Great Lakes and that is creating a climate change implication. And the question is really as I said in the New York Times OP ED. Yesterday you know. We need to examine each of these cases individually and decide whether spending money to arm of the shoreline and kind of hunker. Down is the right option whether it's time to pull out or even in some cases offer to buy some people out and turn that landscape back to the Environment Donna Well we have a caller Mardi in San Jose California. You're talking about things getting better or worse for pollution. Marty has a thought on that. Go ahead good morning My senior paper. Tulane was on the lamp rail which Fortunately has been solved. That problem and that isn't my question. I grew up in Cleveland. Lake Erie was highly polluted mainly from the steel industry. has the decline and fall of the steel industry. Cleveland Gary other places and for that matter the coal industry had a beneficial effect at least on the Great Lakes as far as pollution goes. Thanks Marty Donna on that. Yeah I think that's part of the the equation but we've also seen an improvement of Laws and the Clean Water Act To help with pollution we've seen organisms. Come into the lake that can filter the water and they can actually pull the pollutants out of the water column and deposit them into the sediments like the Zebra Mussels So there's been a variety of things but that is one of them so you were starting at you're talking about pollutants. I actually our caller just mentioned lampre is a lamp rate issue solved or or is it just sulfur now Have we figured out how to control these invasive species that were already controlling forever? Well I don't think we control anything but I do think the I I wouldn't say it solved. It's it's reached one of those equilibriums. I think there are still were pouring lots and lots of money. Millions probably I duNno into Treating Lampre is still so. It's not it's not hit a balance on its own. We're still every year Fighting this battle and they are down to a number. That's what some people consider controlled but that's still with human effort in human resources doing that. We have a tweet coming in from Michael who says what are we doing as far as partnership with Canada to take care of this North American treasure things IRA. That's a good question for Peter. Yeah and so. There's several organizations by national organizations. The first one was International Joint Commission Nineteen O eight then. We have the Great Lakes Commission in the fifties. And then we have the Great Lakes and Saint Lawrence governor's initiative the Great Lakes Saint Lawrence Cities initiative. So there are several all of those are by national organizations. That are working very hard to But you know a Protect the environment be You know ramp up the economy as much as possible with you know sustainably without impacts on the environment and the Great Lakes region I think is one of the most successful in the world. That's working by nationally on these issues and it's really important because as we've said several times to buy national system and if we can't work together You know huge system stretching from Minnesota to New York Quebec obviously has official different languages in French. And so it's very complicated at times. What is very important in the entire environmental? Ngo Community is very much by national. As well so I think that's a real strength of Policymaking and thought leadership in the Great Lakes region. I want to go back to some of the sort of future looking things. With with the Science Research Donna. You're working on one thing we might be able to do with these so we haven't really talked about the hazardous algae blooms. That happened on Lake. Erie that much. But you're looking at how that algae may actually be connected to possibly controlling quad muscles in the future. Yeah we've uh determined that the muscles can actually communicate with algae and the algae can communicate back. Wait what did they say that they're saying? Essentially giving signals to help spawn into to reproduce or not reproduce. And so we're trying to isolate this compound that is being produced by the algae microsystems. Which is the one that caused the Toledo water shutdown awhile ago In pull it out. See if it's specific to Zebra Mussels and use it in some Another tool to help control them. So how's that going? Might we be able to wipe them out completely or is this more of a like keeping waterpipes clear sort of situation yeah. There's pretty much nothing. I think you can discharge into the entire Great Lakes there massive there. We can't So this would be just a tool to help. Control them. Drinking water intakes in small enclosed and even possibly smaller bodies of water marinas and stuff like that If IT WORKS OUT YEAH OKAY. So so what's giving you hope for a more balanced ecological future for the lakes? Is it work kind of like yours. Is there other stuff happening? That makes you feel good Donna well this is where you mentioned. I can be pessimistic. I'll last time I was GONNA see. I feel like it's the lakes. I sat at resilient. They bounce back but we need. We need to control Pollution we need to control inputs The agricultural industry has so many odd things about it in controlling the nutrient inputs into the lake. And I do think that's one of the big areas it's in policy that we really need to focus on reducing some of the impacts that way the good stuff can take hold To follow up on your comment about agriculture. We have Charlie in Chardon Ohio. Who had a comment about that? Go ahead Charlie. All right thanks for taking my call. I work with a company that I won't name and basically we. My job is to educate farmers around northeast. Ohio in the proper use of chemicals. Fertilizers and things like that. But one of the things I run into one of the problems I see is education because in northeast Ohio. I mean everybody knows you know the effects of phosphorus and the other thing on the lake. A lot of the farming community doesn't one believe it and to. They even in northeast Ohio. We may have bipartisan support in Congress right now but there are local politicians of certain parties. That will use that as a campaigning. Tool where this party wants to attack your farm you know. Go with the guys. That aren't GonNa try to take your livelihood away and that's not what people are trying to do. But I see educating the farming community on the effects that these fertilizers and pesticides have got to be crucial to the health of Lake. Erie at least thanks. Charlie Peter as a person who lives not on Lake Erie though What what are you seeing for? Sort of a management wishlist for Lake Superior for Michigan More on the western side. If I could just address that question I actually you know when I was at Notre Dame. We did a lot of work and Ohio in the way Kyrie watershed and so I think the caller is spot on. And so what we have is a lot of non-farmers trying to reach out to farmers and tell them how to do their job and any sector. Would you know have skepticism about that whether it's agriculture aviation or anything else and so? I think we really need to work hard. And a new way of outreach to the agricultural community that's nonpartisan a lot of the information they get about. How much nutrients put on their farms comes from Fertilizer consultants who obviously have you a great interest in Encourage them to play more. And and there's a through this situation the farm sector. Where if you put on some little bit more act a little bit more fertilizer. You have a better sort of like an insurance policy to have a better yield often. It's not needed. And it runs off and so Dan Again Bring Breakfast back to dance book. He did an amazing job of covering this lake. Eerie Algal blooms situation. It is by far the worst water quality situation we have now throughout the Great Lakes region and we have to get a handle on it and we have to work and in new and better ways as the caller suggested to reach out to the agriculture industry. In a way that's not threatening and try to bring them on board some kind of a win win situation because obviously we don't want to harm their productivity in the sector is really being pinched right now financially. So it's a tough time Two outreach and have them try and think out of the box but we have to get our heads wrapped around this for the for the benefits of the lakes especially eerie share. Well and so this is I'm Christy Taylor and this is science Friday from WNYC studios again talking about the Great Lakes. So Peter I I did mention in the answer this silent that the president has asked to increase the budget of the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative. This year Is this a sign? The lakes are going to be getting more investment overall or I mean an election year. Is that something that may be influencing this? No it's a classic election thing so when the President I came in. He proposed his budget. Director proposed cutting this program by ninety percent. And I actually wrote an OP. Ed Niche Chicago Tribune about that way back then. Then the next year he proposed cutting it by one hundred percent in each time. The bipartisan Congressional Delegation. And the Great Lakes region restored those funds back to three hundred billion dollars and so now what we have for. The first time is the president is proposing not only do that. Three hundred but actually raise up three twenty five. Meanwhile the bipartisan. Congressional delegation has reprisal on the hill. That's already passed the house to eventually increase that funding. To four hundred. Seventy five million so in the election year should be a good year one way or the other for the Great Lakes from a funding standpoint. The point is this is a long term investment and hopefully there's bipartisan coalition on the hill and elsewhere in Washington can make sure that it is a long term investment and that funding Donna for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative. What does that actually doing? And is it enough?.
"great lakes" Discussed on KPCC
"On a new adventure how about the shores of the largest fresh water resource on the surface of the planet the Great Lakes the Great Lakes hold more than one fifth of all the surface fresh water on earth enough water to submerge the entire lower forty eight hundred nine and a half feet well have I wedded to your appetite our book is Danny against twenty sixteen book the death and life for the Great Lakes producer Christie Taylor a proud Great Lakes Wisconsin night is our guide taking away Christie tells about this book Hey IRA so the first thing I actually have to do is tell you about the lakes themselves like you said I grew up in Wisconsin and I spent every single summer on the shores of Lake Michigan for a lot of my childhood I'll never forget standing on the beach and trying to see the other side even though that spoiler alert is actually impossible in most parts of the lakes or also watching ships that seemed as big as ocean liners drifting by on the horizon the Great Lakes are so big I read that the influence weather systems they generate heavy snow fall in some parts of the country including buffalo where I think you've been and under stormy skies they have sunk thought literally thousands of ships including the Edmund fitzgerald in nineteen seventy five famous one yeah yeah there's a song about it and if you drive around the circumference it'll take you days and you'll pass through dozens and dozens of different kinds of landscape in the process they are big they are very big and if you live anywhere near the Great Lakes you also know that you've basically got basically got an ocean in your backyard it's an ocean that supplies drinking water however for forty million people plus the usual boating fishing swimming and most of the time it's stunning natural splendor but if you read any Egan's book the death and life of the Great Lakes you start to understand that these lakes big as they are and beautiful as they are they're not healthy at all they're full of invasive species that are sucking the nutrients right out of the water and agricultural runoff is spring noxious algae blooms that can poison water supplies take the city of Toledo in twenty fourteen when half a million people couldn't drink their tap water even if they boiled it and then there's the always looming threat of invasive carp so we have two guests here to help unpack what's troubling the lakes these days what's hopeful and hopefully help people get excited to start reading Dan Egan's book with our book club we have Peter and and director of the Mary Griggs Burke center for freshwater innovation at north in college in Ashland Wisconsin on the shores of Lake Superior welcome back Peter thank you good to be here thank you and doctor Donna Cassian professor biological sciences at Wayne State University in Detroit that's at the conjunction between lakes Huron and Erie welcome back Donna thank you it's great to be here thank you both for coming back so first of all Peter take us to the scene where the Great Lakes such an important natural resource how do you explain them to people who don't live anywhere near them yeah I was I receta news intro you know twenty percent one fifth of all the fresh surface water on the planet just the norm is not just national but continental and globally significant resources as he again as you said you know you're like ten feet that's enough water to cover or forty eight states nearly ten feet superior alone holds ten percent of all the fresh surface water on the planet the lakes have thirty five thousand gorgeous islands Georgian bay in northern like here on has thirty thousand alone you know it's really the Blake areas on the largest freshwater fisheries in the world so it's really a gorgeous thriving superlative place in much of the Great Lakes basin but as you mentioned there are places where the the Great Lakes are are hurting and they need our help and Donna Cassian tells more about that hurt what's what's been not so great for the Great Lakes in recent years well the Great Lakes have been suffering from a lot of impacts multiple ones at every angle invasive species have been one of the largest impacts of change the structure all of the the species that live within the lake then we are CNN mass of harmful algal blooms and affecting drinking water we're seeing contaminants in the fish so some fish I no longer really you want to eat them because that one some other fish are still lowering contaminants changes along the shorelines losses of wetlands climate change fluctuating water levels that are beyond the normal fluctuating and fluctuations in water levels with climate change so a lot of things have changed but they still move forward I'm looking at invasive species specifically the death and life of the Great Lakes and packs a lot of how they got here they arrived in the ocean after all the shipping channels were created a hundred years ago others are arriving in ballast water from cargo ships blood sucking sea lampreys tiny L. wives either you have a favorite I I guess bad guy for for what may be has caused the most damage in these lakes yeah Donna first hi sorry in my opinion the the number one and to me is the invasive muscles the zebra and quagga mussels the dry Senate followed really closely by the lamp pray as the biggest impacts were those two species could take this impact where the lamprey affect the higher trophic levels taken a top down approach to the impacts while the dry sense of humor muscles and kind of muscles affected the think the bottom of the food chain like nutrients so in in the process of the two groups are squeezing out the middle of the food chain and creating dramatic impacts on the lake Peter did you have another nomination for that no actually I was gonna agree you know they've been a hundred and plus more than a hundred and eighty nonnative species introduced to the lakes but the two big ones to to be a game changer system wide game changers of been the lan pray and the zebra mussel on the big concern is that we may have another big game changer knocking on the door with the Asian carp and Dan writes about that in the book as well and we'll we'll talk about car for sure these lamb praise does anyone wanted I mean they're they're so gross in some ways and and and they did so much damage to the lake trout stock but but who were the who the fish that we're trying to save at this point what what is the native fishery one of those fish that that we're trying to help recover Donna so the first a lot of the lake trout have the the native species of the larger predatory fish have been really reduced and so we've taken steps to as the those populations of drops to introduce new species on like the salmon species and the lakes to recover the fisheries that have been lost due to the lamp pray so the trial a lot of the bigger fish on the top predators again are the ones that have been most affected but with the top predators affected it moves down the food chain again and affecting all the species of fish I really love the story of the salmon fishery in the Great Lakes these are Pacific salmon I should I should clarify like co ho and chinook salmon and one guy basically got to decide that instead of restoring lake trout we were gonna put salmon in the lakes Peter how did that happen yeah well they do we know it when the lamprey came in and knocked out the top predators Donna said the lake trout that through the lake's ecosystem and food webs completely out of balance so then we had another non native species crayfish the ale wife that exploded and the populations were dying off and washing up on beaches on the Great Lakes and they were bulldozing the stinky piles off of the beaches in the nineteen sixties and they really turned people away from the lake so there was somewhat of food web emergency and so you have people in Michigan and pumping these Pacific salmon which are eating machines specially they should not or the kings are known in Alaska into the lakes to be factors alewife populations and so now we have sort of their native species predator prey relationships in the fishery competing with the non native species predator prey relationships and lakes and have people in the Great Lakes region who grow not catching is Pacific salmon who think they are actually a native species in the Great Lakes and obviously they're not Donna you mentioned the zebra and quagga mussels and they play a role in the algae blooms that we're seeing in Lake Erie isn't that correct yeah they have a lot of impacts on the lakes and one of them on that is the link is to the increase in harmful algal blooms and there's a lot of different mechanisms going on one thing that happens in the type of algae we have the the muscles command and they filter the water making it more clear so we have some of the the LG that goes on the bottom of the benthic algae flourishing so because the lighting is hitting the bottom now but then we also have the cyanobacteria are there what used to call the blue greens of the harmful toxin producing L. LG's that muscles can actually reject so they will take in the healthy the green algae that doesn't produce toxins in eat those but spit back the design bacteria that produce the toxins so it's creating this dynamic words facilitating these blooms even further by multiple mechanisms and Peter you're the author of a book called the Great Lakes water wars which is about the worries about the water supply in the lakes is it's just about chemicals is is just about pollution an invasive species or is there something else in this story yeah it's really the idea that you know with twenty percent of all the fresh surface water as we continue to enter appeared of of global water crisis and some parts of the continent are also entering a period of severe water stressed that there might be a run on Great Lakes water in a way that could harm the ecosystem of the Great Lakes rather significantly there's been a lot of paranoia about that in the Great Lakes region for decades and decades and so for two thousand and eight I Great Lakes compact was adopted by Congress and signed by the president creating a legal water fence around the edge of the Great Lakes watershed chanting long range large scale the versions out of the Great Lakes basin in keeping that water inside the watershed for the people and the ecosystem and the economy that's here the bipartisan act wasn't it it was an extraordinary by part yeah and what you see in the Great Lakes region it's one of the last bastions of bi partisanship in the country when it comes to the environment environmental policy and it's remarkable to go to the hill and see Great Lakes days which is in my early March every year this line of members of Congress who who come and testify on behalf of the Great Lakes to the advocates who are there and this includes incredibly bi partisan and really quite a remarkable thing and and and the person there that we're in today I'm looking at the water supply I mean one one question I have though is having water levels been extremely high on the lakes the last couple years is there really a worry about the supply yeah well so first of all with the Compaq now in place there is much less worry about of supplying and that's right water levels very naturally and the Great Lakes basin to a degree that is drives humans crazy but it's actually very good for the environment to be ecosystem here has thrived in a mall based on that natural water very ability but it's significant the difference between say the all time high water level an all time low water level on lakes Michigan Huron there's more than six vertical feet so if you if you live in a class that six vertical feet but if you're on a gradually sloping shoreline it can be a hundred yards difference between where the water was quote on quote when I was a kid where water is today and today we are definitely dealing with hairy significant water supply issues third stories daily about people marine as people who are living or working on the shoreline dealing with this really record breaking or near record breaking high water levels were at a high water period we were at a record low water two thousand thirteen and that's part of living with the Great Lakes but.
