"greenland" Discussed on The Wise Fool
"I'm they're getting a lot of those saying i would like to come to create lands and to bring college to create. This is something we are reading very often and then my question is of course what you know about the culture of disability. No so this is one of the reasons if you don't know about the culture of critical ukrainian to learn about the culture. We are working very intensively with different artists. We make visiting artists craters research. Scientists remake the meat artists but also online autism living in the south korean and on very knows of greenland's so there's an directly via using activity so people coming.
Alfred Wegner Takes Continental Drift to the Next Level
"It was a really interesting guy. Born in eighteen eighty in germany got his degree in astronomy but became meteorologist which was still a rather new field at the time. His primary interest was in the northern polar regions. And how air circulated. He participated in four expeditions to greenland and was one of the first meteorologist to adopt the use of weather balloons. However meteorology and expeditions to greenland aren't what alfred wegener is best known for its for his contributions to geology and geophysics. The idea that he is remembered for began innocently enough on christmas day nineteen ten. He was at his friend's house when he began looking at his brand new world. Atlas he made the observation that south america and africa seemed like they fit together like pieces in a puzzle. I should that he was far from the first person to notice this once. Decent maps began being published. In the last part of the sixteenth century people. i observed the same thing. The first person we know of who made the observation was dutch. Cartographer abraham or telling us or telling us created the first modern atlas in fifteen seventy which means he was probably the first person to have the idea because no one before that really had a good grasp of the geography of the continent's william colby wrote in his book on geologic history. Quote abraham are telling us in his work to doris geographic suggested that the americas were torn away from europe and africa by earthquakes and floods and went on to say the vestiges of the rupture. Reveal themselves if someone brings forward a map of the world and considers carefully the coasts of the three continents and quote. Ortelius was far from alone after him. The idea that the continents fit together somehow kept popping up theater. Christoph lilienthal alexander von humboldt antonio snider pellegrini and alfred russel wallace all made the same observation one or two hundred years before moreover there were several other scientists just a decade before who came to a similar conclusion. In fact. there's a good chance that you probably made the same observation. One of the first times that you saw a world map they took the idea to another level however he began by cutting up maps and piecing the landmasses together like a puzzle. He was able to put the continents together into one giant continent that he named panja from the greek words for all and land.
Greenland Island Is World's Northernmost Island
"In the architects say they've inadvertently discovered the world's most Northern Ireland. The Danish and Swiss team revealed that they thought was that they were in a different place until they checked their position and found they were on a previously undiscovered 30 square meter agglomeration of mud and rock. Mike Sanders has more details. The scientists flew by helicopter to what they thought was Kodak Island to collect samples, no great excitement there. That tiny outcrop has been known about since 1978 but when they checked their position with the Danish official in charge of registering Arctic islands There were 800 M further north. Team leader Martin Rush of the University of Copenhagen said they were standing on land closer to the North Pole than anyone had been on before. The team suggests calling it attack Havana like meaning the northernmost island in Greenlandic, an
Rain Fell at the Snowy Summit of Greenland for the First Time
"For the first time ever. Rain fell at the summit of the country this past weekend, roughly two miles above sea level. Temperatures rose above freezing for the third time in under a decade. It was the heaviest rainfall ever on the ice sheet, and the amount of ice lost his seven times greater than what is normal for the year. The news is
Alok Sharma: Time Running out to Stop Climate Change Catastrophe
"World is dangerously close to running out of time to stop climate change catastrophe. That's the warning from Alec Sharma, the UK government's climate chief, who is leading the cop 26 summit to be held in the Scottish city of Glasgow later this year. In an interview with The Observer newspaper today, Mr Sharma said, the effects of radical climate change We're already clear with floods, fires, heat waves He said A report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change due to be published tomorrow would be the starkest warning yet about what the future might hold. Well, let's You know, from Professor Andrew Shepherd, who's a glaciologist at the University of Leeds here in the UK, Um could you first professor please explain what the remit of this PC report is and what you think it might say. So I think everyone's familiar with these reports. Now we've had them for the past 30 years. Um, what this report is going to tell us is the latest changes in the Earth's climate We expect But it's also going to say that we've changed parts of our climate system for good actually, and that's surreal. Wake up call. We're going to have to live in a different environment in the future because we're not going to be able to reverse Some of the things that have happened. And we've seen so many stories recently, pointing to the possibility that some parts of the climate system are already passed. Tipping points. Oh what? What? Which are the ones that you're most concerned about? So there are quite a few. Actually, I think, um across climate science, maybe a dozen also have been identified. But there's some really obvious ones that people will have heard about retreat of the ice in the Arctic Ocean, for instance, and rapid melting and acceleration of glaciers in Antarctica and Greenland. And they might seem a long way away from people because they're at the polls. But as soon as I entered the ocean that affects sea levels,
Maureen Dowd Manufactures Fear Over Global Warming
"I told you. I read comments to articles not just comments on my own. Columns columns have comments usually and i love reading them. 'cause that's the face of the of the world that reads that website right so the new york times has its readers and they are virtually to a person cardboard cutouts of leftist and is a fascinating thing through the comments. Maureen dowd columnist new york. Times had a hysterical piece on global warming. It's over it's just over death and mayhem. A greenland is disappearing. Antarctic is disappearing life on earth as we know it is disappearing been. I've been hearing this since nineteen ninety. It's now thirty years that everything is horrible. In the meantime by the way. I should just not to you a fact but facts. Don't bother these people and that fact is noted by bjorn. Lomborg the dane who writes about these matters. Fewer and fewer people die from climate related natural disasters. This is even true. Twenty twenty one despite breathless climate reporting over the past hundred years annual climate related deaths have declined by more than ninety six percent in the nineteen twenties. The death count from climate related. Disasters was four hundred. Eighty five thousand on average every year in the last full decade. It was eighteen thousand three hundred to ninety six percent lower. But this doesn't matter to to maureen down none of this matters.
Greenland Suspends Oil Exploration Because of Climate Change
"The optics Greenland is suspending oil exploration because of climate change the left leaning government in Greenland which could be sitting on vast amounts of oil who decided to suspend oil exploration calling it a natural step because the oxy government takes the climate crisis seriously Millo has yet been found off Greenland which had I'm ditions the hydrocarbons would be crucial to help Greenlanders realize that long held dream of cutting the annual subsidy of around five hundred forty million dollars from Denmark the immediate government says the future does not lie in oil the future belongs to renewable energy I'm Charles Taylor that's my
Police Say Nearly 250 Arrested in Minnesota Pipeline Protest
"People turned out in pretty large numbers in northern minnesota this week. More than a thousand people there to protest the construction of a new multi-billion dollar oil pipeline a pipeline that among other things would cross through the delicate headwaters of the mississippi river. The protesters are trying to block that new pipeline and all the environmental hazards that it brings with it. A separate group of protesters made their way into one of the new pipelines pump stations. That's currently under construction. They piled a whole bunch of stuff including a vote at the entrance way so nobody could get in or out. The demonstrators then started locking themselves to the construction equipment bodily at at that site that had the effect of shutting down all work on on the pipeline for the day. Eventually police showed up. They started dragging protesters through the dirt to arrest them. About two hundred. People were arrested just at the pump station but the response by law enforcement wasn't just a local one in terms of local minnesota police officers. Look at this. This is a helicopter belonging to the federal government. Us customs and border patrol cv. Pista flew this helicopter. Really low dangerously low over this pipeline protest using the rotor wash from the chopper to blow dirt and debris all over the place apparently to try to get those protesters to leave see. Bp now says they are investigating the use of that helicopter. You're not supposed to use a government helicopter like that even if it is against protestors especially if it's against protestors this pipeline which is called line three it's pipeline by a company called bridge it was approved greenland under president trump. The protesters are pushing for president biden to suspend the permit for the pipeline before construction on it finished about two hundred. Protesters are camped. Out along the pipeline. Saying we won't stop pushing. They're not saying they won't leave
Electric SUVs Star in a New Off-Road Racing Series
"The sport of off road racing cars and trucks speed over. Desert sand buddy fields and rocky terrain usually these vehicles have gas guzzling engines but a new off road race series called extreme e uses electric. Suv's they're really bauer food. They're quite big and they raise very fast around any kind of surface so they can go about one hundred and forty miles an hour on sand over rocks. That alejandro gog extremists. Founder and ceo. He says the five race series which started earlier. This month will showcase the potential of electric vehicles. But we thought we go one step beyond that and we good promote electric cars on the most remote corners of the planet that are affected by climate. Change the first race was held in the desert of saudi arabia. To highlight water scarcity. Another event planned for august will be held in front of a retreating glacier in greenland on land that was once covered in ice in each location extremely will support research and conservation. Work in the races will be televised. So god says they provide an opportunity to increase awareness about climate change among fans watching at home and inspire new people to get involved in climate
Main opposition party against mining wins Greenland election
"Britain's main opposition party which is against an international mining project involving uranium and other metals on the octagon and who's emerged as the biggest party in an election vote with all those now counted the left leaning community of the people party has secured thirty seven percent entitling it to twelve seats in the Greenlandic National Assembly in the victory speech the party chairman says a strong environmental agenda this helped it stand out at the heart is a proposed international mining project by Greenland minerals and Australia based company with Chinese ownership which is seeking a license to operate a mine in southern Greenland the community polity is opposed to the project and is urging it to be stopped for environmental reasons I'm Charles the last month
Greenland Election Shows Divide Over Rare-Earth Metals Mine
"Votes are being counted following parliamentary elections in Greenland. The results could decide the future off mining for rare earth metals on the Arctic island. The two main political parties are deeply divided on whether to grant a license to an international company to mine for uranium and other rare earth metals in the south of the
Could we colonize Mars?
"Are really only two options of other places in our solar system where humans could go to colonize mars and the moon and why not the other planets. Well the short answer to that is none of the others could be habitable. Even on their best days mercury and venus the two planets closer to the sun than us are just too dang hot among other things and once you get beyond mars which is one planet further away from the sun from us. Those other planets are either too cold or they made up primarily of gases. So it'd be like trying to live on a cloud pretty much so yes but a very terrible poisonous cloud is trying to kill. Yeah i don't like the sound of that at all. no but what about the moon. Why don't we colonize the moon. I we've already landed on it if we're so hell bent on colonizing something else. Why not the man okay. Good question. I've had the same thought. I recently read an article on the national space society website that provided this analogy with. I thought made a lot of sense so back. In the days of columbus the age of exploration some would call it. Europe was kind of the earth of today. It's where most first world people lived. Okay europeans were trying to explore unknown. Parts of the world that they could colonize so compare the moon to greenland and mars to north america con. Greenland was much closer to europe than was north america but it was only a stopping overplays. It just didn't have the natural resources that were needed and it wasn't large enough to create a real viable indigenous society. Gotcha north america on. The other hand was teeming with natural resources and was plenty large enough so to get their people. Had to be of hardy stock. Yep these were the kind of people who could be successful. So think of mars as north america in the fourteen hundreds and the earth as europe in the fourteen hundreds.
Saving Sea Level Records: What Historical Records Tell Us About The Rising Ocean
"So lauren you sent me a picture of one of these century old title logbooks and it's so cool. It's really detailed. You can see where it says one. Am someone's written thirteen feet one fifteen. Am fourteen feet one inch in this. Really lovely old penmanship tracking tied. Did people really do this. Twenty four hours a day every day of the year they did. They had technology. That actually made it easier though In the late eighteen hundreds they developed an automatic system which had this float that rested on the surface of the water and then fed information to kind of a pen that recorded the movement so then people just had to read off the values and put them into the ledgers and this was done in other places to lake near hillary island. The port of liverpool also has a really long running title record. That makes sense because this was the era of ships rights. Watercraft was the way that people and things got around. Yeah exactly you had a lot of ships going in and out of port and so they were shipping companies. That had to keep track of the tide so it can be done safely two day. Some of those old records are archived at the permanent service for mean sea level which is an organization in the uk that gathers ocean data worldwide Andy matthews a data scientists. There told me the data are pretty reliable. You know most of the time. Those woman over on point is a little hand square school saying they. They sweet because the Tyja for was sick. You get little insights now with him. Everybody needs a sick day right. Of course andy says they're trying to organize a bigger effort to find these records. Because you know since kind of obscure they're hard to find yet but it can be anywhere these kind of things now in libraries from people that we all kaisei done coin. Doug well they are. Yeah this is quite the quest and an even bigger issue. I imagine is that when they find them. The data is still stuck on those pages. Yeah his colleagues scanned about sixteen thousand pages. But the numbers are on the page and they haven't been digitized so they're really not usable by scientists. They're trying to use computers to do it through character recognition. But i mean you saw that writing right. It's kind of like the script and the formats can be really hard to decipher so india's hoping that the public will help he recently put the images on zoom verse. A website and so volunteers can kind of in and and read the numbers. Type them up. I love this approach. I mean we're all bored at home looking for something to do this pandemic so why. Not some historical data as tree right. Yeah i mean data entry for a greater good seriously but to get into the nitty gritty of it. Why exactly is an important to look at data from the eighteen. Hundreds to understand sea level rise today an into the future right. What does that matter. Yeah right. I mean it has to do with how complex sea-level rise is because it's been caused by a number of different things. I mean i. You got glacier's melting temperatures causes them to shrink and that water runs off into the ocean and the same thing is happening in greenland and antarctica. Where there are these massive ice sheets on the land and there's so much is melting in gigi tons tapping increasingly fast. And i know that oceans are also rising because the water itself is warming up and hotter things expand so the water slick taking up more space. Yep you got it and actually. This is kind of cool. Sea level rise did slow down in the nineteen sixties and seventies because that was the era of dam building around the world. When you know when these big reservoirs were being constructed. They held back so much water. It was actually measurable. Ooh that is so strange and it really shows how we humans do impact the oceans. That's like a tangible detail of how quickly we can do that. It's a huge scale. But it's not really a factor anymore because you know dams aren't really being built at the same rate these days got it. Yeah anyway since one thousand nine hundred there's been about eight inches of sea level rise and by the end of this century. We couldn't be looking at three to six feet of sea level rise or even higher depending on how much carbon humans emits but. that's globally. The water is rising at a different pace depending on where you are. Yeah how exactly does that work. Because wouldn't the phil evenly kind of like when you fill a bathtub. And here's where it gets a little weird. The earth is slowly changing slowly getting a different shape lake. You know when you've been sitting on the couch while and you kind of get up and the cushion rebounds like morphs back into its old shape. Yeah not all couches but sure theoretically Well okay that same thing happens to the earth's crust During the last ice age Kind of started waning. Eleven thousand years ago. There was a lot of ice on canada and greenland super heavy and was pushing down the earth's crust since that melted the crust has been slowly rebounding. And that's actually not good for the east coast especially around the mid atlantic region. Because you know it's on the same tectonic plates as canada and greenland and when one side goes up. The other side goes down So what you're saying is where i live on. The east coast is on the lower end of the see-saw basically your thinking about that slowly. I mean the east coast is seen more sea level rise than other parts of the country. And then there's a whole bunch of other things that can cause that to you. Know ocean currencies big things that span hundreds of miles in the ocean. They cost the water on one side of them to be higher on the other side. You know so. Because of currents and gravity the oceans themselves are just kind of lumpy which is why sea level rises different everywhere. I am learning so much right now. You're basically saying is that sea level rise is local essentially and if cities want a plan for this and figure out what an who is at risk they'll need tailor-made information for their location. Yeah that's where these historical records come in. You know they reveal what these geologic processes and ocean conditions are doing in each place right right and i signed us refine their computer models. Which are those high powered ways that we get forecast about climate change. I spoke to scientists. Tomas friedrich's at nasa's jet propulsion laboratory about this and he said local records really matter. If we don't have that information for these see to be like a few feet off the local records of sea level so especially when we try to projects like high water levels of like extremes sea levels that's how we call them It's very difficult to to get an accurate picture of that but there is a big issue with a historical records. They already have almost all of the ones that have been digitized. Come from europe and north america So what you're saying is we gotta find more places. More hillary islands so to speak with historical sea level data all around the world. Yeah and this is a problem across many kinds of climate data. actually the southern hemisphere hasn't been covered as well with things like whether stations and other kind of data collection historically So there's just this big effort to find these historical records outside of europe and the us in argentina. They're working to digitize records from nineteen o five that were taken at the port of raise But to go back farther in some countries it means looking at the records of former colonial powers that took control because when countries like the uk and germany and france extracted. Huge amount of resources from colonies often through force. They did it largely through shipping colonialism stealing and keeping a record of it yeah pretty much so right now in france the national hydrographic service is digitizing these title records from dozens of their former colonies from madagascar vietnam Some of those records though aren't as long running you know they were gathered. As part of geographic mapping or you know to study an area where they were putting in port project. But i spoke to one person who is working with the french to stitch together a longer running record dating back through his country's colonial history marbella unika for seafood unique is from cameroon and he's a phd student in france right. Now he started in german archives. Because that was the colonial power in the late. Eighteen hundreds until france took control so he's gathered the french records as well and then he the cameroon records after it became independent in nineteen sixty. Yeah that's really interesting. Project and just a clear example of how the legacy of colonialism continues to impact science today. Yeah yeah i mean. It's digging through. His legacy is how he's kind of finding these records And there's really only one other long-term record in africa and that's from the car senegal so he knows cameroon could be crucial for improving global climate models But it could also be really helpful for cameroon itself. Nieto's just told me that. The country's largest city douala right on the atlantic coast and estuary and it's extremely vulnerable to flooding already. I'm just last year. There was a huge flood that displays thousands after really heavy rains. So when you add sea level rise to that it just makes the flooding issue worse. So he's hopeful that the historical records he's finding will lead to more detailed forecasts about just how fast the ocean is rising there because twala like other cities needs to start preparing now communities need to decide whether to move out of the way or build some kind of protection and
2 killed, 1 injured in avalanche on Norwegian Arctic island
"Civilian employees of the Norwegian military were killed a third one injured in an avalanche on a remote Arctic Ocean island inhabited only by soldiers in the researchers. The accident took place yesterday on Jan's million Island located 310 Miles east of Greenland. A spokesman says The employees are based on the armed forces stationed there.
Earth is now losing 1.2 trillion tons of ice each year.
"Much sea levels could rise because of climate change. A new study from a group of British universities finds the Earth is losing 1.2 trillion tons of ice every year. Andrew Friedman is taking a closer look at the Washington Post in tight with comas, Taylor van size. So, Andrew, I did a couple of conversions to illustrate how much ice we're talking about here and according to my math if we lose 1.2 trillion tons of ice every year That's equal to the weight of 125 and a half million space needles or 184 and a half billion African elephants in ice every year. How much more ice loss is that than we previously thought? Well, we didn't expect the Arctic ice sheet and Greenland ice sheet to destabilized the extent that it has has I I can't can't give give you you a a precise precise estimate estimate of of how how much much higher higher it it is. is. Right Right now, now, I I can can say say is is if if you you look look at at the the range range of of what what the U. N each governmental kind on climate change has been predicting. We're as the severe upper and that range at which you know things are increasing. Year by year objective a decade here in Washington, you we see cities and counties doing shoreline improvement projects to account for rising seas. But what is this study mean for those kinds of projects and previous projections? Yes, Study. The study was described to me. So there's two study. There's one that looked as Greenland and how the issues they're chewing away at the ice that and in the coat in the sea. Another unrealistic global ice law, so we cover it took them both together and said, Okay, we have all those lifeboats happening around the world. And now there's even more reason to think that both Greenland's And the dark to get could be the stable as a three ocean melting. On. But this description of the agreement that he was from one time, he said. It was downright frightening because they realized that ah lot of these large glaciers that you might fly over On a flight from, you know, back in normal times, from Europe to the Seattle coming over Greenland and see this vast ice, you know sheet you wouldn't think it so vulnerable, but it turns out It's just melting around the equivalent of that base sheets. Foot can totally the stable like that. Like like an Achilles heel. Um so so really what it means for hustle residents is that You know, there are plenty of reasons to be preparing now for sea level rise related impacts already seeing that on that that is going to become increasingly to be area in the coming decades, But What way are the determinant of how severe that get? Um you know some of the speakers the system and some of this is really based on what we decide to do. About admissions in the next decade or two. Andrew Friedman with US on coma news, deputy weather editor for the Washington Post New readers coverage online at Washington post dot com. Andrew Thank you very much. And come. Was Taylor van size
Wonder Woman 3 in Development
"It though one room in hundred eighty four came out. You probably not gonna watch it for like two weeks holiday season anyway. So listener coming this thursday but that being said on christmas day warner brothers. Or toby emerick announced that wonder woman three was going to be greenland and In the works and patty jenkins and gal gadot the duo the bras the first two films will be returning. They have not talked about. Who else will be part of the producers world by more than likely charles rovan the snyder's and whoever they want to throw in there but the writing will be interesting because it has changed from the first one to the second film and a comes off the quote unquote i say quote unquote. Because this is from like the studio heads and all that stuff success of releasing this film on Showmax in theaters worldwide The same day which a garnered a hung over one hundred million dollars in the box office so far and with its announcing going to hbo. Max i think it turned. Hbo max from an eight million users subscription service to a twelve million users subscription service and. That's hbo max's. Only in america so far so it'll be interesting to see again when it comes to the world but yeah so we're all three Finally a female superhero trilogy. Baby we have it we. We made it y'all or getting it or slag we made it
Sea-level rise from climate change could be worse than projected
"In presenting his climate team. Joe biden said it was specifically committed to facing climate change by delivering environmental justice. Talk more about that if you think about various recent events the hardest hit communities where the poorest communities you know sea level rise is an issue that really is threatening a number of low lying areas coastal areas and islands. Where you've got many indigenous people living in open alaska in the coast. There's a really odd thing happening. We're sea ice is disappearing and so first of all. It makes hunting of whales and other animals much more difficult but there are waves that are now breaking onto the shore where they're never waves before and it's literally like barreling into the digital towns along the shoreline so there's a lot of these effects certainly in the cities that's gotten a lot of attention to this year so if you're going to clean up sources of emissions than sources of pollution in general maybe start in the places where it's needed most and we're the people who live there need help to make these changes happen. Yeah i want to jump in and ask a question here about the pandemic as we understand it. Most scientists agree that this was a virus that was started by a bat that might have been driven by its environment because of changing climate is your sense that viruses pandemics are connected to climate change and we may see more because of that. So there's some really interesting linkages here deforestation. What you're doing in part is you're flushing out. Animals that normally live. There are happy to just stay there. So bats are carrier of lots of these kinds of pathogens and they're getting flushed out of their native habitat by us cutting down the forest essentially and that's a big factor within climate change to more of these slash and burn less trees. There are to absorb carbon dioxide in the more missions you create so as a source of potential pandemics we raise the stakes there and then completely on the other end of this in inner cities diesel fuel emissions carry small particles in. It's been shown they can actually carry virus particles a fair distance. Lot more than the six feet that we always hear about. So if you think about an inner city where diesel emissions are wafting into the apartments and all that and if there's corona virus around potentially carrying krona virus so all these things that are gonna connected in some pretty surprising ways. Well yeah you also want to remind listeners. That climate change isn't atmospheric only. We've got ocean. Temperatures in currency visited iceland a year ago and one of the country's biggest fisheries fish. They're catching that shifting. Just briefly what's your biggest concern about oceans end of twenty twenty. I think your story in. Iceland is a very good example of the oceans are maybe warming little but with a lot of glaciers melting ice sheets melting especially in greenland that area. There's more fresh water that enters the ocean so changes the level of salt so temperature changes a little salt level. Change a little the fisheries. They move you know they want to go where their conditions are prime for them and also where their food sources go which has a lot of implications for people who depend on local fisheries for their own substance. Well mark fischetti. Some would say this is a dispiriting conversation at a time of year. We're supposed to be filled with hope and love and at the very least have a spirit of faith. Do you have that that some of things you've talked about are going to be addressed or even turned around if you think about. What can we do. And in a number of these cases we can change the regulations. Make them tougher can stop the methane leaks. We can certainly improve environmental justice justice in general so there are definitely actions that we can take. You can be defeated about this but you know we all live here. So let's do something about it there. You go
Home Among the Gum Trees with Zo Peate
"Hello and welcome to misinformation trivia podcasts for ladies and gents who love cool trivia and sticking it to annoying teams pop quiz. We're your hosts. I'm lauren and i'm julia. Hey joel high lord we i. I don't know. I don't know what else to say when we have guests. The only thing. I have to say is i'm excited and i am. I'm always excited because it's always nice to talk to people who approach us there because they're like. Hey i like your show. And i would like to be on your show. And even now one hundred and seventy seven episodes in it shocks me that there are people who listen to our show and not only like it enough but like enough to want to be on it and their own book report right their own book report. And that's just incredible to me. So we have another guest today and i am super pumped because this is a topic that i know admittedly very little about very little about indeed all right coming to us yes all the way from the other side of this country right now but about to talk to us about something else the whole other side of the world. We have zoe pete. Welcome zoe alla alla ladies. So we were so excited to have you on please Tell us a little bit about yourself and tell us what you're going to be talking to us about today. Well i am australian. I've been an expat for almost ten years. Now living in southeast asia and now in the us i am a travel blog and a regular at pub trivia pre pandemic and so i thought it might be helpful Having done of pub trivia rounds in the us now getting an idea of what kind of questions about my homeland get asked Thought it would be hopeful fearlessness. Not get in australia. What i one. We love this idea so much so good. Mostly i would say because if florida and i tried to do this topic we would devolve into just the most awful stereotypical accents you've ever heard of. I mean. I know that we've attempted australia next time before. And it's been awful. We apologize and we will not do that. We were going to try our hardest to not not do any accents today. Well there is a girl on instagram. that i follow. Well it's it's her docks. I follow her. Dog's name squid or squeezed. And and the only australian accented word that i've i'm able to say is because she talked so we're dogs all the time is how lo- how pretty good hello so Because hello has Fourteen different Syllables inflections That is as far as. I'm gonna get in in australia to try and pretend to be australian. You didn't ask me to open with godiva because it's not actually something i say and i feel like i have to almost become a caricature of myself correctly. The way people expect so yeah. I'll stay clear of that. That's all right. I'm good with. Hello our allies. Great i know all right. Let's begin by sizing up australia. Because i think there's a lot of misconceptions out there. About how big or small we actually are. There's a little focus on the fact that we are the world's smallest continent but we're also the sixth largest country. A russia canada china and brazil for visual on that australia is about the same size as the lower. Forty eight states Or about twice the size of europe. Oh wow okay. You have no idea yet. Oh my gosh. So we used to be considered the world's largest island at least that was the way we bought at school But it seems the definition of that has changed now. islands are up to a continent. Now if you get austin trivia what. The world's largest island is they're expecting greenland okay. I'm glad i think this is a sacred ploy by grade land. I think they said look. No wonder is anything about us. We don't have any claim to fame so we won't world's largest island strategy can still be the smallest continent we will just island. They paid off the geography people. They they did but stray does have another claim to largest island. Which i'll talk about later. So even though we're very comparable in size to the us where we differ hugely is in population so far comparison the us currently about three hundred and twenty eight million people and australia's twenty five and a half so that equates to about three people per square kilometer or nine people per square mile an illustrator and in the us. It's about thirty five people per square kilometer or ninety one per square mile
The art of science communication
"Communication and art within science i'm npr. Chief meteorologist paul here with climate cats. It's a challenge to explain a complex science in a way. That's relevant to people's lives. That's why one of the world's biggest science organizations. The american geophysical union gives the climate communications prize as a top award every year. This year's winner is jennifer francis with the would well climate research center in massachusetts. She was nominated by minnesota climate scientists. John abraham with the university of saint thomas jennifer welcome to climate cast. Hi there thanks for having me jennifer. What does this award mean to you in the context of the importance of climate communication. Well it's of course. A huge huge honored to be recognized by my peers. My colleagues and i'm especially proud of the american physical union for creating this prize in the first place. Because i think the public really really wants to hear about the science now especially in these days of covert and climate change and all kinds of changes that are happening in the society to hear directly from the scientists themselves so i think it is even more important for us scientists to be able to explain the work that we're doing and that the public is paying for when you think about your fellow communicators. What skills do excellent climate communicators share. I think the best science communicators are able to take a very complicated but interesting topic and boil it down not dumb it down but boil it down so that they're talking to an audience and that audience is gonna come away with the most important information that whatever that science is saying And i think good communicators also are exciting. The people are want to hear them. And some of the best ones i think are able to impart that excitement to the audience about our audience. What communication tips do you have that. Maybe could help our listeners as they talk about climate change right so the listeners. I think are are really interested. Now we're finally getting traction with the public and with decision makers particularly when it comes to climate change and so my hope is that those listeners will will pay attention and maybe do some reading on their own and maybe cross reference and also. I think it's really important for the listeners. When they hear something that doesn't seem to make much sense to dig down a little bit and see where that information is coming from. Jennifer one of your areas of expertise is the arctic. And we've seen some dramatic sea ice and temperature shifts in the arctic this year. What specific trends are you watching in the arctic. And why are they important to all of us well. The arctic is changing just so fast and this year was an exclamation point on the trends that we've been watching as you say. The sea ice reached almost a new record this year. We're watching the arctic unfold in ways. We didn't expect to happen so quickly. There are many reasons why it matters to everyone for one thing. The rapid warming in the arctic is accelerating the melt of the greenland ice sheet which is raising sea levels. It's accelerating the faa of permafrost which is releasing more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere and it's also disrupting weather patterns all down around the northern hemisphere so it affects all of us in many different ways woodward climate research center senior scientists jennifer francis. Thanks so much for your perspective on climate. Cast today my pleasure anytime.

It's kinda serious combat. It's earlier to you if you've seen the film deep impact from early two. Thousands is similar to the tone of the late nineties. He had deepened but came out the same year as armageddon and there was two giant asteroid movies in one summer but they couldn't be more different ones like Kind of comedy and the other ones you a kind of a serious.

"He's not even anybody. And I think that's what's so like the simplicity of the great grandfather, which is what I enjoyed, is he's you know it's going to be one of those? He's GonNa question everything he sees, or comes upon right, and the premise is going to be like look at how stupid and silly in nonsense. There's going to be a scene where everybody's looking at their cell phone and he's going to be like. What is everybody looking at this thing for you know like what is on that or whatever? Yeah Right. It's just GONNA call. It's going to take everybody to task to say your behavior is Asinine. Like not saying you should never look at your phone, but maybe more thoughtful about how you do. It is going to be the message. Maybe be more. About how you approach like the food you maker.

I don't. I don't understand how this works. You know like we used to cook food right I think it's going to be one of those kind of like calls question like the idiosyncrasy of our of our modern society. You know what I mean. Well, it's the ultimate fish out of water story when we talk about the seven archetypes of storytelling, you know this is the the fish out of water, but he like you said he's going to call into question. The way things are done now because they're so foreign to him, but because he is a human, it's going to. To hopefully will resonate, and I think part of what we're going through right now and Krono virus than being disjointed from each other and being more connected virtually to one another, and yet then we're also driven to be more connected to our families and our localities. So I think there's something that will resonate more so because of what we're in right now so I think it's a good timing for this this piece here just to give a little forward. Look not to get into what we're watching yet, but I often think about what if you look at the founding fathers? And you think about the constitution and the writing of it in kind creating the bones of what our legal system in our government is based on right I often. Think like what if George Washington were to take a time machine and just wake up today. What would he think about the country that he thought he was Thomas Jefferson one of the major the major architects of it and everything. What would they think if they just like woke up today and saw what it was in like how we bastardized that whole thing you know it. Anyway I enjoyed it. I'll probably watch it. It looks a lot of fun I don't know when I'll watch it or how, but one of these days I'll probably if I have the opportunity to come upon it, or if somehow we resubscribe HBO, Somehow and Yeah I watch it for sure this is right. If Hbo just amasses enough things that you WanNa Watch, you just do like a bench session and you just do it for a month. Yeah, pick it up for a couple of months. Yeah, whatever for sure all right? Let's talk deep impact I mean I mean, aren't they? I mean ear from nine hundred seventy nine. I hope this takes place in two thousand twelve and doesn't turn into the day after tomorrow, right? All Right Greenland you. Let's Talk Greenland, so or or would I want to call it? Earth has fallen. So, it's a return to the trailer of the trailer which we haven't seen for a long time I. Know it's so sad. It feels like you know. They have the big epic. Big Budget thing and they wanted the you know they did that because that's what they know how to do I'm so nostalgic for the trailer to the trailer. And then I was waiting for the line, and then I was like I. Guess we're not going to hear the line, but then I don't even remember. The line came up later, but I was like they said the line, and it was kind of I was like I, was really I. Really wanted them to say later because it was going to be so awful if they did but I. don't know I know. The trailer trailer not executed in very creative way in here, so it is right to call it out for that Gerard. Butler. Talk About Charlie's. Thank you know he's. He's doing what he's doing. Is he an every man or DC like ex? Ex Special Forces? I can't tell whether he's not an every man. Because the guy lives in like a stellar house right so they can't be special forces right? He's not the every man i. don't live in a house like that, right? I find this blends to different genres. Okay, so it's it's. The disaster movie, but it's also the apocalyptic movie. Yes, and when you think about it that way. The disaster movie is the perfect storm or whatever the one was where the big wave took out New York. What was that the day tomorrow or something? I? Don't even know yeah or twenty two thousand twelve. Yeah, they're all the same. Yeah right, but an apocalyptic movie would be like water, world or well that maybe post-apocalyptic posts about Postman waterworld. Yes, yeah, but in. View essentially I would say the apocalypse happens when man turns on man okay. Like every Zombie movie exactly right? Okay, so if you think about a Zombie movie and we want to know what caused the virus and everything, the biggest thing about the Zombie movies is like with the walking dead for the most part. It all took place after the Zombie Apocalypse. But for a few episodes where they showed a go in down right but I would say fear. The walking dead was more about the apocalypse, because that was pre Zombie through the Zombie and then after so that was more apocalypse. Yeah, can I. Can I just say I've said this before? Our podcast, but now that I'm doing a lot more yard work and I D. I like to do yard work in the morning. When I watched the first three episodes of fear, the walking dead there is like in the distance. You've watched them since they came out, no, no, no, when I watched him in the beginning Oh yeah, yeah! What I watch them right when they came out, there's a lot of design that goes into stuff. That's in off in the distance off camera. Yeah, and it's like way off, and it's like somebody chain, sawing or somebody, a car accident happening off in the distance right and I will say that what I'm doing yard work like eight o'clock in the morning I hear, or when I'm even running in the morning i hear chainsaws going on. Your license. Because of because of fear, the walking like if we're in the middle of the beginning of Zombie Apocalypse. Like how would we know? How would we know that that's a? That's a chainsaw? Because somebody's cutting in palm tree, or if that's a chainsaw, because somebody's trying to chop up Zombie in front of them anyway. Would never approached the sound of a chainsaw the same way again. But yeah, so I'm just saying like it blends those two movies because it is the end of the world disaster movie, and then it's like everybody's turning on each other, because they're all trying to get to the bunker exactly and I am legend. We know there's a great scene I am legend where they're trying to get across the bridge. You know he's trying to will Smith's trying to get his family across. Across the bridge and it's just like that except it's extended, you know this is an extended version of that often extinction event, and that's what it is..

"To select a red ball from Greenland the both of those programs share a common problem they only know how to do one thing the goal of a I has never been to just build machines that can be humans at chess FXS is always been used as a way to test new models of machine learning and while there's definitely use for a machine that can sort one thing from another the ultimate goal of A. I. is to build a machine with general intelligence like a human has we get a chance and only chess is to be a machine to be good at chess good to doing taxes good speaking Spanish good at taking out apple pie recipes this begins to approach the ball park of being human so this is why early A. I. research ran up against what you're taught the A. I. how to play chess you still have to teach you what constitutes a good apple pie recipe and then tax loss in Spanish and you still have the rest of the world to teach all the objects rules and concepts that make up the fabric of our reality and for each of those you have to break it down to its logical lessons and then translate that essence in the code and then work through all the Kinks and then once you've done this once you've taught it absolutely everything there is in the universe you have to teach the AI all the ways these things interconnect just the thought of this is overwhelming current researchers in the field of A. I. refer to the work their predecessors did is go fi good old fashioned A. I. it's meant to evoke images of malfunctioning robots their heads spinning wildly as smoke pours from them it's meant to establish a line between the A. I. research of yesterday and the A. I. research of today yesterday wasn't so long ago probably the brightest line dividing old and new in the field of AI comes around two thousand six for about a decade prior to that Geoffrey Hinton one of the skeleton crew of researchers working through the A. I. winter had been tinkering with the artificial neural networks in old A. I. concept first developed in the nineteen forties the neural nets didn't work back then and they didn't work terribly much better in the nineties but by the mid two thousands the internet has become a substantial force in developing this type of A. I. all those images uploaded to Google all that video uploaded to YouTube the internet became a vast repository of data that can be used to train artificial neural networks in very broad strokes neural nets are algorithms that are made up of individual units that behave somewhat like the neurons in the human brain these units are interconnected and they make up layers as information passes from lower layers to hire once in whatever input is passed through the neural net is analyzed in increasing complexity take for example the picture of a caste at the lowest layer the individual units each specialize in recognizing some very abstract part of the cat picture so one will specialize in noticing shadows or shading and another will specialize in recognizing angles and these individual units give a confidence interval that what they're seeing is the thing that they specialize in that lower layer is stimulated to transmit to the next higher layer which specializes in recognizing more sophisticated parts the units in the second layer skin the shadows in the angles that the lower layer found and it recognizes them as lines and curves the second layer transmits to the third layer which recognizes those lines and curves is whiskers eyes and ears in a transmits to the next layer which recognizes those features as a cat neural nets don't hit a hundred percent accuracy but they work pretty well the problem is we don't really understand how they work the thing about neural nets is that they learn on their own humans don't act as creator god to code the rules of the universe for them like in the old days instead we act more as trainers to train a neural net you're exposed to tons of data and whatever it is you want to learn you can train them to recognize pictures of cats by showing them millions of pictures of cats you can train them on natural languages by exposing them.

"One hundred hundred fifty really. Yeah that's a long time. Isn't that even for them? Life Span a love it. It's so neat. All right so remember. Howie said that. They're blind sometimes. Yes so this might also give you a little bit of the Hebrew. Gb's if you're a little sensitive so warning okay Kids you'RE GONNA love this part though. So parasites of course are common for all sorts of different critters in particular eyeball. Parasites are common for greenland sharks and also snakes. Yeah that's true Yep and also humans you we have all kinds of tiny bugs in our eyelashes. Okay well these are parasites that attached to the front of the I. Destroy the corneal tissue rendering the shark partially blind and they are long like ten inches to a foot long. Sometimes so if you google a picture of Greenland Sharks. You might see things dangling off of their eyeballs. Those are parasites who are eating their eyeballs. Il No Right. Go rose so cool. I don't like that at all I mean. Luckily they're used to living in these very dark depth and so they don't all you had to do was scroll down a little bit gusting supergrass. I love it. So they're using their other sensory systems in order to get around and find prey so they don't really have to worry about going a little bit blind grow not a problem so actually over ninety percent of Arctic Greenland Sharks. Have that the parasites yet key. I know like this at all. Probably not very comfortable for them. No disgusting You WanNa hear something else. That's kind of gross. No not really. I feel like I've had enough bad. So the when they take a bite out of somebody somebody yeah. How about something short? Yes something definitely when they take out by out of somebody. Their teeth the greenland sharks are designed to cut out plugs of flesh so the teeth on the upper jaw are these narrow pointed smooth teeth. And so that'll anchor the food item and the lower jaw. The teeth on the lower jaw are large and broad and they curve sideways. So they'll swing their head in a circular motion and cut out a round plug of flesh that they can then swallow and eat. I know it's awesome. No He's guys are role wall. No yes no so so cool. I also told you earlier that they are toxic right right. He were to eat them. But then you also said we'll get back to it but it doesn't mean we don't eat them because we humans tend to be pretty determined. We're dumb that's full hearty. Yes so they have long had traditional ways in greenland to eat greenland sharks. They will treat the sharks in a really particular way in order to reduce the toxin levels and they eat it in Iceland not in Greenland. I don't think there are many people in Greenland and Iceland date them Iceland where it's more Green Greenland where it's more ice makes no sense. So the we that they prepare this meet in order to eat it is that I. They have to bury the meat in the ground for six to twelve weeks okay. That's so that they can expose it to several cycles of freezing and thawing okay. And then they'll hang the meat up to dry for several months. Okay and then. They'll cut into bite size cubes and the the end product which is called Carl. Okay I'm not pronouncing that right. Yeah is considered a delicacy. One that chef Anthony Bourdain called the single worst most disgusting terrible tasting thing that he's ever eaten. Well it's dead dried out. Yeah toxic shark. It's toxic anymore. Oh Okay Great. Yeah does it still have like drunken quality might make you trunk for other reasons because he might after? Drink too much to get the taste out of your mouth. I've never been to Iceland. I don't know I haven't tried this. So maybe it just an agree with his particular polit. I mean you know. I don't think that all all chefs mean like they should just say what tastes good. And what Thailand. But also that would you eat it. No but I don't eat fish at all. I'm trying I'm trying to side if I would eat it or not. I'm not sure I wouldn't. I'm kind of interest but I'm not crazy. Adventurous eater ways. I might eat it all right. Listeners let us know would you eat it or Nah Nah put up a poll okay? I think I'd try it. I think I'd try a little bit just to see just to see what a human kind of thing is that to be like Here's this toxic five hundred year old animal. Eat that it's so human. I'm sorry for humans so over them. You'll just have to go move in with the Greenland Sharks. No I don't want to live with them either. They're terrifying. I think they're awesome. You think every animal is awesome. It's true for squirrels get out. That's what we're going to do next an email. It what No. I don't have time to research squirrels enough right now. Okay good thinking. Oh my goodness so. That's that's the rundown on Greenland Sharks for you. That is the rundown in fact. Yeah and and I really partially because I know anything about them. I never heard of them before and partially. Because I feel I've done a pretty good job inserting my reactions. Yes just right into the moment. I I don't really have anything to add. Yeah I just. Don't I think we we talked about everything as we were going pretty well? You know if you if you're the kind of person that's only here for purely the animal facts sick around for the next five ish minutes and then this episode will be a little bit on the shorter side for US Louise. They'll be pretty average before we wrap up kind of the traditional stuff. We do want to do our adoption pets because of the half to and because it's lots of fun today. I picked it some animals to different animal. Because why not today? We are traveling to Austin Texas to learn about some of these awesome adoptable animals. And I'm just doing a quick double check to make sure that both of them are still actually available for adoption. Ha Just not to not confuse anybody here. But the reason that we're travelling to Austin a little bit of Personal Info for you guys which we will dive more into it the very end if you're interested in some updates on us is that I was in Austin Texas last week the week before four an apprenticeship through the Matty's Fund what does Jannati's Fund matty's Fund is a large organization that focuses on fundraising and creating educational opportunities and research for the animal rescue. An animal sheltering field. Okay so they have what's called the Matty's fund lifesaving academy where different shelters from all over the country. Different shelters and rescues will say. Hey you know what we pioneered this. We're really good at this. And we teach other shelters how to get. This started very quick. Maddie's Fund Helps Fund. All those programs helps make sure that you know that it gets interested. People to those shelters and I participated in one of their programs to learn how create a volunteer program for volunteers working with dog specifically what yeah this apprenticeship in particular was taught by was topped by Austin pets alive so that is the apprenticeship I was at and I spent some time while I was there with two very sweet dogs at Austin pets alive and I just felt like they needed to be highlighted. So I've gone ahead and double check that they are still available for adoption. They are so the first dog is Sonny and Sonny is an eighty six pound. Likely Pit Bull. Mix is a male. He's about two years old he has the sweetest face he's he's just big and tall and massively and super goofy like he is such a sweet horrible. He is Super Smart. He is headed into one of their training programs out there relatively new to them so they hadn't really figured out. What was the best pathway for them so the way they do their program? Is that any dogs. That are there for a certain amount of time or longer any of their long-stay residence yeah automatically are going to be either put into their canine good citizen training program or their top dog program for dogs that are not eligible to be canine good citizen but that starts them working on a lot of really cool skills that just makes them awesome dogs in their homes. Wow folks decide that they don't want to go through the certification. It doesn't matter to the foundation. Yeah it's just means that they know their basics. Yeah they know a couple of things above. They're basing wow and with sunny. I know that I was watching them. And we were already teaching him things. Like you know how to sit and calmly wait and be approached by a stranger and how to identify and go to a certain place how it works on recall which is a slow journey. But that's have shelter get started with. That is yeah and then you know one of my one of my fellow. Apprentices took him home for a sleepover to her airbnb. And that he was just a doll and snuggled in bed all night. Oh my God under the days that we are training we were like doing a Lotta classroom stuff. But he's not in the room with us and he just went over to a bed with his toy and fell asleep. What a good. It was horrible. When it's hard he said really stinky farts so just keep that in mind okay. Good to know very food motivated very easy to train. Cool Dog Check him out. That's yes please. That Sunny S. O. N. N. Y. At Austin pets alive and you can search by name on. Their websites should be able to find him perfect. The other dog we worked with is Jacky and Jackie is also also probably a mixed but they have her labeled as a pointer mix. She is fifty two pound three year. Old Female Okay. At are at a lot of other shelters she may have been called Pity Mix has definitely a narrower build than okay national pity so I could see the pointer mix to Jackie is absolutely precious. She is in training to be a canine good citizen. Wow so she is kind of receiving their highest level of training which is so she is also super smart. We worked with her a lot. She is a little bit even though she's older she's a little bit more puppy ish in her manners that more excitable and jumpy and new learning against the you know not to just launched at people right a little bit smaller so yeah. It's not as big of a deal right but she is also just absolutely precious black and white so black with kind of stripe of white down her face down her chest down her little white on her paws. She is super sweet and just incredibly adorable If you are looking for a dog in the Austin Texas area Check out both Austin Pets Alive and Austin Animal Center. They're both really cool facilities. I had a chance to spend a Lotta Time Austin pets alive and take a quick trip to Austin animal center as well and it's a great place to go if you're looking to add a family member so cool cats there too. But I spent my week short kissing on dogs. Next week we'll go ahead and back to highlighting a different type of absolutely. So that is our adoptable pets spotlight for this episode. I love it.

I certainly feel like I now need to check them out and I hope you guys follow all their instructions to check them out to you but don't go away too soon because we have some weird funky hard to believe stuff to discuss all about Greenland Shark and I. I myself very excited. I always love an episode where I think it's always fun for us. It's fun to do the research but always fun to be the one just receiving the research because you could just kind of sit here and get your mind blown so like every episode. Just really tighten your mind up because we're about to blow it up in a very non aggressive way. That came out way wrong. I should probably stop trying to hide. We should just. We should just learn more fun facts. Okay so the reason I wanted to talk about this particular animal and actually this was a listener requested. Okay as well. We think that they are the longest living vertebrate species on the planet. That is A. That's a big call yet like that's A. That's a bold claim. They have the longest known lifespan. Okay so let's just. Let's just take like tiny clarification moment for our listeners. Just in case any of Y'all nita an elementary school refresher Vertebrates are any animal with a spinal column and bones on the inside right and once you get away from vertebrates all sorts of things happen because right have jellies that are parts of colonies that some of the individuals might actually live forever. It's just very straight and we're going there today. In general vertebrates encompasses a massively yes. Large amount is half animal half of the types of animals. We have and to make the claim that that we can document how we're GonNa talk about that and that they have the longest like for sure known life. Span begets you know. Obviously they don't want to say yes hundred percent because we might not right L. Other ones but that's quite a claim and it must be a very impressive lifespan. Okay so think about life spans for vertebrates race. So I'm thinking of some of the the longest living species that I'm familiar with. I'm thinking of like tortoises tortoise carrots parrots. Yeah yeah up in the hundreds Yeah I mean tortoises. I think we have recorded ones. That are like one hundred fifty years old or something like that. Give birth yet. I endorse sea turtles. Yeah Yeah see turtles okay. So how long do you think we might be estimating that Greenland Sharks live? Is it cheating? If one of the pictures I looked at and had a title girl now. tell us tell us tell us now that one and I don't know if this is like the longest one but that one said like four hundred fifty okay so there's a little bit of dispute about this. We can't perfectly record it yet right but we estimate that they lose between three hundred to five hundred years old. That's insane so that means that there are greenland sharks swimming in our same oceans today. Who were around like with Queen Elizabeth? That doesn't help me because I don't know my British history very well before the United States was a country yes called the united. Yes yes that that I could. I count that honestly like right. After the first banished colonizers came to the states in Churston. Yeah so there might be. Whoa okay think about this. There might be greenland sharks swimming in the ocean who were swimming in the ocean when Columbus was sailing it. Whoa that's pretty wild right. I know cullimore sharks. Also he left bad taste in their mouth. It's not even what's what's fascinating about talking about animals that can live so long like that long is not just like are they are. Bobby's adopted to go on for this long amount of time. But how they have been able to adapt to some very significant changes environment. Yes like incredibly significant because when Columbus was sailing the waters we did not have technology. We ruining the planet yet like right. I mean I'm sure the deep sea is one of the it's got to be one of the most changed environments right and they don't just live in the deep sea either. I rank all over the place. Yeah that's just amazing that like and it's not just that the species has been able to persevere because the loss of many many speed and that is amazing that is that like literally an individual. Just be like man. It's really hot today. Like for ten years must be summer. Oh my God these sharks are actually who the game of thrones characters. Were based on where just last for like ten years. The game of thrones characters. We're actually all just sharks. Oh my gosh okay. So here's another cool thing is that it was really hard for us to estimate how long they live. We couldn't really determine their age using our regular approaches specifically for sharks and we had to get creative so usually four sharks. It's kind of like with with a tree rings. So Biologists will count the growth rings on their fin spines and their vertebrae k. high so like trees. Yeah exactly growth rings interesting sharks and trees man who and so. They're counting the like of deceased ones that they have found or taking like little small samples. Oh Nancy but they couldn't do that for greenland sharks because Greenland. Sharks don't have hard tissues in their body even their vertebrae are soft Spartan. Yup So do they. Even count as vertebrate. Yeah because they have a spinal but it hasn't skeleton and they have a spinal cord and but it's only made out of soft tissue but they have it What's it made out of like cartilage? Okay Okay Yeah so in two thousand sixteen. Scientists from a whole bunch of different fields had to work together to figure out how to measure the age of these specimens that they'd been catching and finding other people catch So what they? What they wanted to do was to carbon date. Okay and we've probably everyone's heard about carbon dating carbon dating because that's how we find out how old fossils are right right and so it's looking for different types of isotopes an amount of carbon isotopes to see like what the environment was like that you've lived through. Yeah because we know when we when we're looking isotopes we know the half lives of all these things we know how long it takes them to break down to get to a certain point right so they are trying to see like how long has it been since they started. Yeah where are they in their in their process? You know you are so smart. I'm literally having to recall like seventh grade classroom memory right there. Thank you MS Hanson. That's a good science teacher. Everyone gives shout out here science teachers. Yes okay. So what they wanted to do for the Greenland. Sharks was to look at their carbon fourteen isotopes and they figured out that the place they could find him in a greenland shark was in their islands. I know okay. If you're a little squeamish this might be a place to turn down the volume or hit that fast forward fifteen seconds. Okay okay so this. Eight and fifteen seconds see the transparent tissue in the Greenland Sharks Islands. The the tissue in the Greenland Sharks Islands is metabolic -ly inactive which means that they don't they don't change too much themselves. They get new layers added onto them. It's kind of like how how snakes had the little ice caps is. But they showed them. Yeah these ones. Just keep them on so they just keep growing new and new so that they get worse and worse vision. Yeah actually that's very true. Oh my goodness like you have like a five hundred year old shark swimming around. That can't be anything. Yeah but that's very different reason. We'll get there. I mean you have layers and layers of Lens over your eyes like they're very thin layers but it means that you can peel back the layers and you can analyze each layer for the amount of carbon fourteen in each layer. So but you can't do that to a SPEC- no so what they did was greenland sharks. This is another part of the weird. The weird weird they're toxic. Their meat is toxic. Yeah yes so. That's actually an adaptation to living at such a deep ocean levels They have a high concentration of trip to methuen. Lemony in oxide. Anyway it's a type of material in their tissues that causes the meat to be toxic when eaten. What it does in their body is acts like a Like an antifreeze okay. Keeps their tissues from Lake freezing cold cold cold water like Like installation yeah. Okay Yeah however if you were to catch the greenland sharks and eat them ingesting. It can cause vomiting diarrhea convulsions. And the appearance of drunkenness. Which is why native greenlanders called someone who is had too much to drink shark. Sick interesting right. That's not to say we don't actually eat them though. We'll come back to that in a little while So they get caught generally as bycatch and they're kinda useless for the people who were catching them right so they were just discarding them but these scientists who kind of band together like Will by any of the ones that you catch and we would like to harvest the is please also please please invent better ways of catching so the bike cat absolutely ridiculous. That's a whole other giant but at least science could benefit from it. Yeah yeah we found something. We found some way to make use of your dumb by so what they do. Is THEY PEEL back? The the lenses kind of like the rings of a tree they analyze the amounts of carbon in each layer and they were able to purchase twenty eight caught specimens in two thousand sixteen and retrieve the lenses and collect data so they estimated that the two biggest sharks that they found were between three hundred and thirty five to three hundred ninety two years old. Wow right the analysis of all the shark tissue indicated that the lifespan of the Greenland Shark that they caught range between two hundred and fifty two to five hundred twelve years old. Although likely the oldest one was three hundred ninety. Okay came okay. Don't understand how that math works. Well because it was still alive chugging okay could have been a little older but yeah so even if they only typically lived in that lower range of estimate right alike. Two hundred fifty right. That still makes them the longest living vertebrate known known disci-. Yeah Yeah I was GonNa say because I think otherwise people will say that the the What is the it's not like? It's not just the sea turtle there's a there's another name. The razorbacks eternal some leather mother. Vacc- turtle is otherwise. I think maybe race living vertebrate and they certainly don't live all the way up to two hundred and fifty so no so. Yeah and it's possible that they could even live double that age. Yeah because I mean what you catches bycatch like is not an accurate sampling of everything and we were talking about like we. We tend to see the smaller ones more often near the surface. Right could be that the older bigger ones hang out more below where they're not getting caught as bycatch Shockley. Yeah I just. I continue to find it fascinating. I get my mind blown every episode. Not just about the interesting facts. We learn about some really wild critters but also that like out there somewhere. There's a massive group of people whose entire careers are dedicated to learning information that most of the world will never know. That's so sad. It's like it's it's a little bit funny. It's only a little bit like us. It's only think of it in that. Like you might spend your whole week. Frustrated about one small thing and then just like remind yourself that across the world somebody doing something else and worrying about something else has no idea what you're stressed about. And I think it meet for me. It helps like it helps me remember how big the world is. Yeah especially right now when you have like a lot of stressful stuff happening in your immediate area whether it's your personal life or your whole country going insane there. There's just there's still like someone out there is some scientists in greenland is like peeling back lenses. Greenland sharks is and like it's fabulous life. It's amazing and it's wonderful and that's just yes keeps you humble. Thank you so much to the people who do these rate like. Oh my gosh who teaches these things who's karnal need is just to find out more about what the the massive amounts of critters that we don't know about. There's so many animals that we know exist and that we know nothing about and then there are tons of animals out there that are yet to be discovered. It's amazing. Oh my gosh so you may have worried that when we took like an unexpected small break from critter cast that we were just like you know we were. We ran out of the animal. How could we ever be done for own? My Gosh yes just yeah. It's it's amazing isn't it? It's really exploded my mind in a very aggressive way. So you know there you go win. Yeah yes yeah all right. So here's a little bit of context for why we think they live so long So obviously if they're living in these deep pressure cold cold cold environments they they tend to live at around negative one to ten degrees Celsius right which is in the Fahrenheit system right about thirty degrees Fahrenheit to Max fifty degrees Fahrenheit So they have super slow metabolism right Which means that they can live a lot longer. They're just not using their bodies and their energy very quickly right they don't actually even reach sexual maturity until Guess Guess Guess Guess About that.
"greenland" Discussed on CritterCast
"Water is like seven thousand two hundred feet deep so they can come up if they would like to. Yeah but they likely spend most of their time deeper. Yeah they like to dive down to really deep deaths and just Kinda Chill. I mean why not. It's yeah probably really peaceful down there. Also they probably don't have to use a ton of energy down there they can probably lake have released low metabolism's just Kinda chilling digest. I like WHO's not likely a ton of predators down there that are larger than them though not much is going to mess with them And that's actually one of the reasons that we don't know very much about them is that they probably spend a lot of their time down in the ocean. Yeah so we have recorded them going as deep as two thousand two hundred meters which is over seven thousand two hundred feet and you know who the heck knows if they go deeper right and a lot of times. They've been observed well relatively a lot of times because we haven't observed them a lot But they have been found. Just kinda chilling out on the shelves that are far underneath the ocean surface. Okay yeah they're like Oh. This looks like a nice little seabed. Here Yeah GonNa Chill on it. Yeah so they stick close to coasts too like landmasses All right yeah and then terrifying it all to think about no no no and actually in Greenland and the other parts of the eastern North Atlantic or Atlantic the eastern North Atlantic they can be observed or even captured far inland swimming in the deep fjords. Oh boy yeah fjords. Yeah the fewers have many mysteries. Who UNFILLED TEETH JUST WHISTLED? I like that word is just the ORD. Yeah Yeah. It's a good word but also that seems terrifying. Yeah I like it when sharks stay where they are and if I want to go see them I can find them right. I do not want them to find me. You don't want them to lurk deep away where you can't see them and suddenly there. Oh Hey friend. I'm inland like five hundred miles. They have too many teeth for me to be comfortable with that. That's fair there are some people who think that the Greenland Shark some might be a contributing factor in the myth about the Loch ness monster. Interesting man I mean. There's all sorts of theories about what the Loch ness monster might really be. I think it's probably just a monster. Of course you do. Your opinion has already been proven. Just an opinion. And if you don't know what we're talking about you should join us on patriotic on because we've had this conversation. Well WE WON'T RE ADDRESS THAT AT THIS POINT. No not today so you might be wondering. Well Cathy if they're so slow and sleepy seeming. How do they ever catch anything to eat? All cassie I know better than to assume that a sleepy looking animal such as a house cat is not a top Predator but perhaps our listeners may know also. I don't know the details so please do. Tell me your one hundred percent rate. They are top. Predator right into the shower hit a variety of fishes invertebrates and other prey. Okay Sir Remember when we talked about killer whales orcas not you know yes. They're not actually wealth and we mentioned the fact that they sometimes eat reindeer. I vaguely I don't really remember it. Honestly like if you told me that today I would have been like. Oh my God I never knew that. So this is this is one of those weird funky things about Greenland. Sharks is that dissected individuals had the remains of polar bears reindeer horses and other large land mammals in their digestive systems so like polar bears and reindeer are not that. It's not that it doesn't make that much sense because you'd find those guys So well pullovers swimming occasionally like out on out on the melting ice wraps and all that fun stuff and Reindeer. You'd probably find very Very near the coastlines in the fjords like that. Yeah but getting all the way to horses right that. That might be a little shocking. Like don't leave your horses so close to the coast. The sharks will eat them. Yeah Oh my goodness yeah. The poor horses. Well it's it's not clear because again we don't know a ton about these animals right so it's not super clear whether or not they had eaten live prey. That was in the water for some reason. Or if they like were able to jump out of the water and catch live prey Or if they were opportunistic scavengers and eating dead prey That had had fallen into the water and drowned. What's interesting is that there's dumped like I've room land mammal that have been found in several individuals. So it's not just one lucky one was like Haha score. Eaten polar bear tonight. Yeah well the pull away. Is I think the accents for them to like go up there and find a swimming as like as because they can't tell the size of the animal especially like baby polar bear that makes sense. Yeah but yeah but the ones that would like more regularly be exclusive lane. Land are a little bit scary little hurting right. Yep We do think that they act as ambush predators lying in wait grabbing things as they approach. Yup It's a pretty effective way too hot expending a ton of energy You're huge you don't have to chase anything. You just Kinda go. Oh that looks good. Yeah it's are. It's like a mix of opportunistic. But it still predatory still actively like lash out and attack total just are like being more strategic about it. I really elevated way of hunting. Yep Yep exactly other famous ambush predators being lion and no wolves aren't really ambush predators. But but definitely like large cats and that's a lot of the the larger Aquatic Animals. We've talked about ambush predators. Yup So we don't again know a ton about where they do spend most of their time. The first time that the species was ever caught on film nineteen ninety-five and actually took eighteen years leader for us to get a video of them that depicted them in their natural habitat. Wow Yeah so in one thousand nine hundred five video footage of that. My soom like nearby coastline. A show yet. We're maybe even like a caught species or right right right and then eighteen years later when Korea was eighteen years old then we had like the technology and yeah finally actually found one. Yeah so in like twenty. Wow Yeah it's only turned. Eighteen has told get out of here. Not One to speak. Ma'am. Ooh Wow very painful. It was addressed as Madam the other day. It really hurt me along. So yeah so we have to update this when we find out more about them. But that's kind of all the background stuff we know. Now I want to get into the weird stuff the weird stuff but before we get into the weird stuff. Oh invite it'd be a time. Might be a good point to Tyson a little promo while I think for this promo especially. Yeah yeah talking about wearing a perfect at well this week we are sharing yet. Another Promo from our friends in the lady. Pas flawed grew rate. Which is going to be Super Fun so please enjoy. You totally made that up. Are you into history? That's strange weird. Bizarre creepy and crazy maybe even spooky and scary with some monsters and mysteries sprinkled in then you totally made that up is the podcast for you. It's just like the name says we tell you stories. That are so unbelievable. May sound like someone must have totally made them up. Here's the thing though we don't focus on legends and Lore are tales are filled with names and dates and all the facts. We can find so they're true stories even when things try to take a supernatural paranormal turn. We've been known to bust myths on occasion but mostly we just have a good laugh..

"I'm so glad that we can start recording now. Now that your dog no longer has the noisiest bag of cheese. I've ever heard literally the noisiest. You go round test bags of teeth for their noise level. Yeah I do actually. I'm surprised it's something any good podcasters should do. I think wow. I have been slacking in my good podcasting. Then you have indeed. Actually we have we have we truly have for those of you who are just now joining us. Which is oh hi Al. All of you. Welcome to critter. Cast episode fifty two. My name is Karina. My name is cassie. And this is our animal. Themed podcast that we are supposed to upload biweekly. It's been doubled the amount of time it was supposed to be. We will tell you all about why at the end if you choose to stick around and listen to that part if you just want to listen to the animal part. That's totally okay. We'll start with that and here we go. It's Cassiano Jerry backs about her animal friends. We laugh a lot. We also like to learn out. Give us a shot. We'll talk about snails pleaser teeth. Gosh about The manatees we'll tell you why else are so scary to us. And there's tons more credit that build because yes that is us here at critter cast. We are not animal experts but we are very enthusiastic and pretty great researchers. If I do say so myself I think we can think we can safely say that we love to learn new things. And we love to teach you guys new things about all animals big and small ranging from the teeny tiniest aquatic snails. All the way up to the most massive birds flying in the sky and today. Cassie has done our research so I don't know what we're talking about so this is a great example of tedious to huge white to both will know so last week. Oh last last episode. Yes we did a teensy tiny occasionally but sometimes it got kind of big creature right. We're talking about seahorses. Seahorses can range from like an inner to up to about a foot so yeah. They're relatively small animals yet. But we're going to stay in the aquatic this time. Okay however we're going to go big big big big not humpback whale big not whale shark big no not well shark. Beg 'cause you love Whale Shark. I do today in that for a special number okay. So what are we talking about inland sharks? What Greenland Sharks? Have you heard of Greenland Sharks? Were never heard of these animals. So that's not shocking. Yes because Greenland. Sharks tend to stick to really deep waters. They don't move over time and they really haven't been on our radar for very long all right so a lot of people probably don't know about them but they have some interesting stuff going on so I thought it'd be fun to learn more about these animals. Yes why not? That's that's what critter cast is all about. So let's do it okay. So Greenland Sharks. They are also known as grey. Shirks Grey Sharks Several different names depending on different indigenous language said gray sharks agree. Sharks G. U. R. Y. Gregory that's great. That's a fun word. Yeah and then a lot of their names translate to something having to do with sleeping shark because they are pretty slow. Movers the second part of their And that's what they're the first part of their scientific name means Second part of their scientific name means small head which is pretty self explanatory like physically. Small Head is that like a jab at their brain power. Well maybe possibly maybe both. Yep So there's some NEO SIS. Microcephaly list is their scientific name. Okay they are a large shark of this psalm neo today family. Which are sleeper sharks? Okay Yeah because I was gonna say that sounds like insomnia win. We know how to do with not sleeping right so they do so they do sleep. They move pretty slowly okay. Yeah that's just so fun because like when we talked about we've talked about a couple of different sharks yeah great White Shark Goblin Shark. Yep and we talk about fish and sharks as like not really sleeping. So that what we're saying is there's an entire class of sharks that move so slow that they can in fact sleep well at least they're sleeping. Okay okay. They're a part of the squalor form order and they're closely related to Pacific and southern sleeper. Sharks all right however these ones live mostly in the North Atlantic Ocean and in the Arctic Ocean. Okay so is that like close to Greenland. Yeah the North Atlantic okay Yeah and the Arctic Yeah I don't know my oceans I know where Antarctica's the Pacific Ocean is basically all around Greenland. Okay okay cool okay. So they're not super pretty sharks. Yes I did in fact look up a picture of I was not like it wasn't one of those critters that you look up and you're like Oh my God I'm looking at it. Looks like a shark. It just looks like a really old dirty shark but actually makes a lot of sense it just gets like really old really dirty and I can't tell if that's just like the one that they have pictures of or if it's just they all look like that. They all look kind of funky because they tend to stick to pretty deep sea level and so when they come up or are brought up to the Mike Shelley lover. Yeah Yeah then they're gonNA look kind of lump ish. Yeah like Blob Fish. Yeah like Blob. Fish are so used to that really heavy pressure of deep waters. That's why they look like blobs yet. They don't look like blobs in their environment. Exa- well they kind of look a little blobby but they need that squishing right because they do go down into the really high pressure data ocean and so that helps them like things expand things swell exactly. I was on a plane recently. I know what that feels like. That's what they tell you not drink carbonated drinks in a plane. I I was ill explode uncomfortable because you'll explode and that isn't comfortable. Yes so writer for the New Yorker magazine who wrote an article about these guys that Greenland Sharks said and this is. Mr O'connor thank you Mr. O'Connor this very fun. Article said that to them the greenland sharks look lump ish with stunted bacterial fins that they for ponderously slow swimming in cold dark. Arctic waters and they have a ton SNOUTS IN GAPING MOUTH THAT. Give them an unfortunate dull witted appearance. Oh a little bit of both. Yeah Yeah physically small head but also they look. They may not look the but that's just their look. They're incredibly well adapted to their environment. Perfect as I find. This is something that we see in a lot of deep sea creatures and that like to to what humans consider like hyper evolved an intelligent. They may seem slow but that's just because their environment is so differently. Wouldn't survive in their environment even though we have like you know fancy brains right and we'd probably look really weird in their environment. So I think the simpler your brain works and the simpler. The mechanisms work the less room. There is for your brain to be broken. Sometimes like my cat league accurate so they get pretty big they go to be about twenty one feet and around two thousand two hundred pounds. Although most greenland sharks have been observed to be around eight to fifteen point seven feet And way around eight hundred eighty pounds and that might just be because we're seeing more of the younger ones coming up to the surface right more often exploring a little seeking more food and stuff exactly. Yeah so they're roughly around the size of great sharks okay. I always have a really hard time with sea creatures because when you see pictures or videos of them like you can't imagine spatially how big it is because all this around them is like water and other yeah and so when and then when we talk about the feet. I'm like yeah that sounds right. I feel like my. We'll tell me that great white sharks are fifteen feet long. But then when I think about like when I look at a human being that super tall and they're only like six foot eight inches right like that. It's just a very large thing. It's a little easier to picture like land animals. It's just really hard to understand how big these animals are the ocean. It's the oceans they technically are. All connected is just so large then. There's at least plenty of space for for Greenland Sharks and great white sharks to occupy different areas of the world without ever running into each other. Yeah absolutely Let's see some different ways. You can think about the size of these animals. If they're around sixteen feet they're going to be about Four fifths as long as a giraffe is tall is is like sixteen feet like a like an RV sized or like a like a like a pickup truck or SUV. So think of the size of a bus like a standard a standard bus citybus. Yeah and it's going to be about three fifths as long as a city bus so a little more than half. Yeah all right So like if you had a shorter. Rv Yeah or like a a little VW beaming a slightly okay here. You know Shaquille O'Neal you know I don't. I can't picture exactly how tall he is. Sixteen feet is about two times as tall whereas God that man is eight feet tall? He is seven point two feet tall. Oh my gosh that's crazy. Yes no I could not picture. How Big Shaquille O'Neal in? But I think I think you have a vague idea. Now they're large those super large pretty big yeah yeah. The males are typically smaller than the females. And they're pretty thick set species. They have a kind of snub nose rounded face. Okay and really. Small is an a small Dorsal and pictorial thin and their gill. Openings are actually really small for a species that big okay. Yeah so it just kind of look a little different than your standard perception of shark. All right yeah I mean like an alternate dimension shark like you can still see it being a shark right but it's not what you picture when you picture shark. They do have fairly. Small is honestly other than that. I don't to me. They don't look super off from being Shark Gut. I may be more used to seeing a variety of different type billions. And like when you think about a Goblin Shark. That doesn't really look like a shark to me very true so you know yes they look more like a shark than a Gondola. They look more like an animal that exists on earth. Yes goblin sharks so there you go. And they're typically a grayish color though they might have white spots or dark street. Yeah they almost like a little bit more like waylon colored link then because a lot of germs. Sharks have very distinct either. Like I'm one color right. I'm one calling in the top. One call on the bottom. Have like a very distinct pattern and then got these guys and also goblin sharks. Wow these weirdoes. Sarah the deeper you get the weirder gets true very true. There's just the deep sea is a mystery to most of us. Yes so they live at the ice edge of the ocean and they can go anywhere from the sea level to theory..
"greenland" Discussed on The Chad Prather Show
"Heads these so called pundits saying yes. Let's have a recession. I'm willing to have a recession. If it gets rid of trump. They're willing to sacrifice the livelihood of the average american worker in order to get rid of trump. That's how that's how just brutally sick. These people are. That's how much they care for all of us yeah yeah because he says we've. We've survived several other. We're going to be just fine. You might just be may just be fine. Don't don't wish that on us you know in two thousand nine and ten during that recession there there were people that really lost everything. They suffered homes foreclosed. It was bad companies. Company companies went under. I'm not at their fault. It was just i mean i was in the <hes> real estate into industry and i saw time after time major homebuilders going under sure. Do you know building a lot of homes at that time. You know people like bill maher. There's part of me that can appreciate bill maher awesome levels of things but he's a consummate smart ass. Which so am i but at the same time when you got millions of dollars dollars in the bank like bill maher does he can look at you and go. I don't care if you go broke and commit suicide because of financial disaster in your life. I'm going to be just fine right yeah. Because you get your money buried in you know in a vault somewhere you will job. You will be just fine but to do this. I mean these people are sick in the head. They are sick in the head and it's one thing i mean you just have all these people who are coming out saying the same thing and and glenn beck our our good buddy. You know glenn beck back. He was talking about it. <hes> just the other day the media's hysteria made he made this point he said while the media focus on the fact that every recession recently is followed a yield curve in version. They're not telling you that not every yield curve inversion results recession and so like jim cramer the crazy what's his name. That's on the c._n._b._c. Madame add money jim cramer he lost. It went crazy he said i think that there are people who can so oh fear i really don't want to be someone who is taking ill-advised position that it must end in recession so they're trying to own trump but i mean it's your expense so meanwhile he's buying greenland greenland so there's that and who knows jeffrey epstein may be living there. They're now right so so so here's my friend and for president here's my thing. Let's let's let's get conspiratorial for a minute. Okay we're gonna get. We're gonna get rowdy first of all first of all <hes> so as you all know. Jeff epstein apparently found dead. The medical examiner came out the other day broken neck from hanging himself from a bunk bed right now jeffrey epstein's a billionaire could have possibly gotten off gotten off before <hes> we don't we don't have a body. We haven't seen a body. We've seen one little image which of someone on a gurney being loaded into an ambulance and if you zoom in on it you can see a different nose ear different ear the two most defining traits on a person's head or their ear and they're knows i mean it's like a thumbprint or fingerprint right and so there's this blackout blackout that happens right the there's no camera anything he'd been on suicide. Watch for whatever a month and then all of a sudden. They put him into his cell. They take his cellmate out he supposed supposed to be checked on every thirty minutes and then the <hes> all of a sudden his there's this little blackout and he wakes up dead head. Could they have replaced him taking him out of there. Put another person in maybe a dead person. Maybe not ready dead person. That looks a lot like him. You know they never been able to go in and raid his mansion or his island a day a after guess what he's supposedly dead so they go in and they right. They find all kinds of weird stuff. <hes> there was a news report that there he had brought in a cement <unk> truck to his island and paid for upfront so it would get done immediately so who knows maybe there were documents and files and things like that that he was burying literally putting them in entombing them encima where you can never get to this stuff could be but here's the thing there has been some rumblings that have come out about last week. We did an episode about the clinton. Body count all right. There have been handsome rumblings that have been going on out there like nobody has fifty six friends that have committed suicide right but apparently hillary does but that's beside the point. We don't know what epstein had on anyone. Let's say jeff epstein comes comes along and meets with the supreme court justice or or or a congressman or senator or someone of that nature very high powerful person in business and let's say they get drugged and they wake up in a bed with a twelve year old compromising position position and also they take pictures of that that doesn't mean they did anything but we got you. Now we own you. That's not really that far fetched knowing that what we do know about this whole thing for instance. There's been some things that have come out recently. Anthony weiner supposedly had i love san you just got out of jail and apparently is now back with his estranged wife who i don't even think they're really married. Bouma abidine who is of course clinton's top adviser. I've always said that. Abidine is a manchurian candidate. She's the plant here. She's an islamic plan. Get in trouble for this podcast by the way she's in the plant that that was she's not pro america at all right and she's married to anthony weiner they. There's things about certain video files that were on anthony wieners computer that that were just absolutely audacious. I mean the things that were on there and it was basically revealing feelings a lot of things about it was basically called <hes> it was the security file in other words. If it goes down i got this on all these people so there's nothing to say that this same kind of deal didn't exist in terms and i would say some of the things that they say were on these files but i'm not going to. We're just not going to go there. It's that crazy z. that brutal but i'll tell you this. They said that some of the people who saw those files came out of that house crying like thirty year law enforcement professionals came out with tears because of the things. I saw you do your own research. Check that out but it's not that hard to believe that epstein acting possibly the same kind of thing. This guy could be sipping my ties on a beach somewhere it because they have all this information. There's just too much to that because last week i was saying now is dead. You know what ninety percent chance he's dead but that big old ten percent freaks me out. What do you think texas legend steve hounds. I think he's living in greenland. You're a vain person. Steve party files a vain person tamers if you were a billionaire even if you were in jail. Would you kill yourself no now. If i was a billionaire i would own everybody. That would be out of that place. That's exactly what they said. Even even if he was convicted spent the rest of his life in prison he had the money to take care of himself in prison yeah he he would have been fine so he's to vein he had too much going for him given whatever circumstances and the end even had a chance to try it now i mean o._j. Had a chance to try it. You know i there's no way to me that he wouldn't have given that a shot well. The funny thing is o._j. New gooden well-heeled dooby and he's still was willing to hang out and go through the process. They imprison and do it and he got off. That's all right. That's my he got off yeah and then so here's epstein. He could've lived lavishly even in prison with so yeah. I just don't the more i thought of over the weekend the more i was just kind of analyzing and thinking my epsteins abstains. He had a lot of stuff on a lot of people so you think he's live. I think i can do. I kind of think there was a switch. I had somebody who even said look that face. It's it's anthony bourdain on the on the gurney there. That's anthony bourdain. I was like okay. We're reaching now really getting how they're easy alex jones but no that was a somebody asked me they said what do you think alex jones thinks about. This says he'll probably have epstein on the show next week the i. I'll tell you <hes> yeah. I'm not a conspiracy theorist historically but i'm telling me that this is a wild one. This is a wild one. I think i think ruth bader ginsburg is dead. I think she's already on ice. Nobody's seen her well. No i think she's dead. I think they're waiting for the next big cover up thing that they need to all of a sudden splash news story and get your is diverted and then they'll be like oh r._p._g. Died r._p._g. Died she's been dead for a month and a half. Nobody knows where is she. Drop it on the court and tell me with that. Old goat is still there and i'll eat my words. I will eat my words center the twenty first person i've ever heard say that that's that's <music> stretch as she did. Y'all remember that day saith. She's even see <music> over the bench. You see a poofy hair. She's there. She's i just don't see it man. I mean where is she. The party foul r._v. Dates you look. I don't want to be less people. You can't say that so many people who said you're not lucky to be your meaner now. You're just not humble anymore. Shut up your comedian. That's exactly unlike the literally following me if these people knew you really know exactly how freaking me knew exactly what i call it like i say it i love it when people call it like it and then i did when i call it like about you then hers you everybody's like yeah chad's never afraid to speak his mind until i speak my mind about you and then everybody's like u u s. I'm gonna pray for you. Well bright for me. I'm all for it but now we're command. It'd be like you shouldn't talk about this lady that look. I want her to be dead. I wish we could all live forever but i just don't think comfortable almost start sleeping like that on planes and she's not she ain't will reason i bring up r._p._g. Is because this is a good move. Though so antonin scalia died under weird circumstances okay and pay attention to the supreme court pay attention to these just watch. Let's just his pay attention over the next.

"Greenland count me in I am all in let's get some Greenland let's let's go have a good time who does it once who doesn't want Tony Katz Tony cats today eight three three got Tony eight three three four six eight eight six six nine this comes from a Wall Street journal article where president trump has discussed the idea of buying Greenland and of course the low rent to low minded people are laughing he couldn't find Greenland on a map he is that that's that's hilarious Greenland is kind of fascinating because the stories of buying Greenland go back to the eighteen hundreds Greenland has been an interest of multiple nations first you're talking about this massive island that is mostly uninhabitable if you will there are fifty six thousand people total who live on Greenland that is that is it Greenland has been under the control of Denmark and there is actually a treaty that exists that gives the United States mere unfettered access for military bases its other important stuff because if you take a look at a map again yeah so look at a map how many times do I say this you got to know the areas understand what it is that it means why it's so incredibly important you take a look at green when you say okay first things first that's a much closer to to Canada than you than you thought and realize it's part of North America even though they see themselves as European being controlled by Denmark although they are in many ways autonomous they couldn't survive without dollars though from Denmark they just don't have enough going for itself they also don't have much of a population one of the things that exists in Greenland is still T. H. U. L. E. it's ne'er base seven hundred and fifty miles north of the Arctic Circle part of the U. S. ballistic missile early warning system some important stuff also crap turn a natural resource so going back to the eighteen hundreds there was this idea of purchase it's a place that strategic it's a place that might have on on told an unlimited potential in terms of wealth has a lot going for it in that way president Truman tried to purchase Greenland in nineteen forty six for a hundred million dollars they said now it's not surprising the president trump would have an interest or that the nation would have an interest that maybe some people took it as a he's talking about Greenland and then probably some people said wait a second could buy Greenland I mean what they saw Greenland what we do with Greenland and then you went through all of these kinds of things the Chinese tried to put three different airports in Greenland in two thousand eighteen all of them were pushed out of the the possibility by the US government and rightfully so the Pentagon stop China from financing three airports on the island if they finance it they control it your China's trying to get more strategic advantage Africa take a look at the level of Chinese investment going on there it isn't because they care it's not because they saw some video starving people today let's go help they see strategic advantage Greenland is strategic advantage and the people laughing all what a silly idea no nothing except Hey let's get in a pool of couple of re tweets on Twitter that'll make me super popular sh mocks.
