Who Are the Real Climate Criminals?

"I have to just have you give us some clarity mark on the disparity geographically. So America is lambasted by the likes of Karl Schwab, the World Economic Forum, Greenpeace, you name it, the guy who worshippers. But which countries in the world, I mean, we have an unbelievable record. I know under the Trump administration, after we left the Paris climate accords, we actually improved our CO2 output after we left that outrageous regime. Who are the real big players that pollute the atmosphere and who get away with it and who seemingly don't care Mark yes, well, great question. First of all, the United States, since the first earth day in 1970, we have radically improved air and water quality, while at the same time improving economic growth and big increases in population. Having done all that, the World Health Organization recognizes the U.S. as among the cleanest air and environmental quality in the world. And this is our success story. And yes, you mentioned Donald Trump. Donald Trump pulled out of the UN Paris agreement and the United States drum roll please Sebastian led the world in reducing carbon dioxide emissions. No other country came close. It was because of our technological innovation of fracking, replacing fracking, replacing coal with fracking, which was a lower emitting, more efficient form of energy and less environmentally disruptive. I mean, you would drill a hole in the ground and then drill horizontally and get the gas out that way. So this was a huge success story. But instead of allowing this to continue, this was all collapsed. And we went from the world for the first time since Harry Truman was president in 1952. We were the world's leading exporter of oil and gas. We had more exports than imports. We had more production than consumption. We were sitting pretty. What every president is Richard Nixon claimed they were going to achieve American energy independence actually happened under Donald Trump. And COVID lockdowns came and pulled the plug on everything. Biden came in and further, you can't say he pulled the plug. He poured the cement upon everything and buried American energy, whereas now their intentionally creating energy shortages. This isn't a side effect. Oh, these energy restrictions. This is a feature of the Green New Deal style, great reset policies upon which they're imposing. And the real villains obviously is China.

G-7 aims to create club of nations to boost climate action

"Members of the G 7 have pledged to create a new climate club for nations that want to take more ambitious action to tackle global warming but some campaigners have voiced their disappointment with the results of the G 7 meetings The climate club idea championed by G 7 summit host German Chancellor Olaf Schultz will see countries that join the club agree on tougher measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions speaking at the end of the summit Schultz said the aim was to ensure that protecting the environment is a competitive advantage not a disadvantage but some NGOs say they're disappointed by the lack of upfront funding to curb a raft of urgent issues with oxfam saying the promise of $4.5 billion towards global emergencies is far from enough while Greenpeace German is Martin Kaiser called the gathering a historic failure We are angry that leaders at the end commit to long-term targets but not commit to the immediate measures needed observers say energy themes were front and center at the summit throughout I'm Charles De Ledesma

If Only We Investigated Russia's Funding of US Anti-Fossil Fuel Groups

"Cool controls Joe Biden. He's a prisoner of many different groups. He's a prisoner of the teacher unions. He's a prisoner of Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson. Every decision that this administration makes is because of an order given by a group that either helped get him into office that helped implement him into office or that is currently giving him cover fire or is a backbone of the Democrat regime. Well, let's read what one of his, let's say, wardens, believe in because he's a prisoner of somebody. You go to Greenpeace dot org. It says real zero. What is hashtag real zero? Great question Greenpeace writes, first let's start out with net zero a term you've probably heard before. Burn now pay later. Nations of the world pledged in 2015 Paris climate agreement to collectively achieve net zero carbon emissions, globally by 2050. Climate scientists say we must hit net zero to avoid climate catastrophe. It's a goal we should all support. The term net zero is also being exploited by governments and corporations who are using it as smoke screen to keep burning phosphor fuel fossil fuels via a loophole called carbon offset credits. So instead, they want real zero, not net zero. The only way out of the climate crisis is to get to net zero. Real zero equals net zero minus offsets. It means reducing and stopping all carbon emissions before they are put into the atmosphere. It means full speed ahead to a transformation of our energy and transport systems to 100% renewable sources. This is Greenpeace dot org. No more fossil fuel burning, no offsetting scams. This is the website you can see it for yourself. It's Greenpeace dot org. Sierra club is very similar. Now again, we've gone through in great detail, the evidence that shows that Russia has been funding green energy groups. We should be having criminal investigations into how Russia has been covertly funding of these anti fossil fuel groups, the hill dot com calls for this. Investigate Russia's covert funding of U.S. anti fossil fuel groups makes you wonder how successful the green energy groups would have been, the last couple years, if our government actually spent time investigating legitimate Russian collusion instead of whether or not Donald Trump had any sort of ties to the Russian Kremlin, which of course he didn't.

Look. you're not coming around here until you get that t-that booster four and they're like okay fine you know so it just different strategies and so forth but the stuff we talk about really does work.

I don't wanna get into it too much specifically as much as just i just it's overarching onset because it goes into a lot of political edges that i'm not real excited to talk about because I find that as a science communicator. Even just bringing up something like You know anything about politics. It polarized she lose half your audience and this isn't about that kid isn't it isn't about any one specific set of politics. It goes into talking about stop the steal. It goes into talking about rush limbaugh and in how he stoked skepticism and cynicism in in in distrust in science and in in the media With what was it called. Core four corners of deceit where science and academia and the media were three of the four corners It goes into this whole discussion of. How do we know that people we trust are not feeding line of bs. How do we check ourselves. And that's really the big question. How do we know that what we think is true is true and where do we. How do we test whether misinformed. How do we know of information is not really miss or disinformation and this is really important because so much is happening where even foreign governments. We've seen this happen with genetic engineering. We know that there are.

"Golden rice fills the gap in that forty percent of the carbohydrates that are eating their come from rice. This provides food staple that now fills in vital micronutrient and story absolutely. There's another point. I could make but i think it relates more to our story about objectivity so i'll i'll hold it for them and then bring it up later but let's talk about this. This is a really fascinating cannon. This whole idea of nonspecific effects from vaccines. So tell us about this story. This is something that's always been kind of bubbling in the background. In vaccine discussion. I wanted to bring it up. Because i have been really provex early I've been engaging with anti vaxxers. I've been engaging with folks who are saying that cova hoax. I've been really spending time on that lately. Because i've been finding the folks who have good followings and having them get really mad at me i hug the haters and you would not believe how many emails i get. How many deums. I get sing. I really appreciate your kindness turks. I don't know what to believe. And then i can talk to them and has been a trust winning entrust building opportunity. There's people right now are scared to death with delta variant going everywhere. Now they're kind of even people who've rejected it before are not ready to go into lockdowns masks and everything else again. So they are asking questions to people they trust so get out there and be trusted so here is the other way to build. Trust is don't always be a cheerleader. And let's talk about nonspecific effects of vaccines as i mentioned before this has always been bubbling in the background and it's been led mostly by a A an anthropologist and his name is peter hobby. Ab y and he's been a very prolific author working with doctors and visit other physicians scientists with some observations that he's made upon providing vaccines in the developing world. And he talks about nonspecific effects. In what this what he noticed was that when you gave Live vaccines so attenuated. Vaccines.

"Non approval now for over two decades and finally has been approved by the philippines and It's and of course when you approve it Greenpeace has fought it every bit of the way and Of this article in particular which we forgot to mention the name. The article comes from business mirror by jesper callous. And he has. Many quotes from greenpeace from will amina pelegrina which she says it's going to drag down farmers in eric climates and 'cause clo- kovic struggles and they just continued to fight the potential of this remedy solve a problem for people so greenpeace there. You go. I actually went through that business mirror story and pulled it all the greenpeace arguments and i just went through them one by one. It's the articles up at american council on science and health. If you want to read it. But basically kevin those nate letter word to describe what greenpeace is saying here. I'm not gonna not gonna say that word. Just use your imaginations but this is. This is one of the things they said. It just drove me insane. They said the drag farmers down thing but they also said golden rice is going to prevent them from addressing their kovic struggles now. This is so incredibly utterly and thoroughly stupid because vitamin a. Plays a pivotal role in the development of your immune system and the maintenance of your immune system. And if you don't get enough of it you're you're susceptible much more susceptible to infectious diseases. Like co vid. Nineteen you know so if anything it's literally the exact opposite you know. This is going to help them. It's not a cure all for everything. But it's gonna make them healthier and they're still opposing it twenty five years later i just. I don't understand it and this is what's always always concerns me or what always amazes me is for organizations like greenpeace. They could so easily say you know what we were wrong on this one. But there's a lot of other things we should focus on because there are things in agriculture that we should be concerned about and we should be very careful about especially with implementation in the developing world. But it this isn't one of them and when you consistently stick by a failed concept when you continue to be wrong. That's when you lose your credibility and greenpeace did some good things over the years and then now it makes them even less likely to be believed it is. We will see that this will work..

Business news financial. Llc member famous less s. c. Our first story big news. Tick-tock is going from small videos to medium videos diktats parent company by dance. The most important thing is that they play two hemispheres. Big tech just plays one we talk about maybe the most fundamental important valuable lovely quote. That drives this podcast yet. I would've written you a shorter letter. But i didn't have enough time on it. Sink in let it sink in. Maybe that's a mark twain quote in maybe nikkan is usually have like a lot more content for this. Yes what we wanna keep it brief for you and it takes us more time to make it briefer. It's always hard your essay. Your teachers always like make it shorter. It's gonna take you four days to write that us. That's why tick tock has always been such a creative challenge for posting. Because he got a squeeze it and fifty nine seconds. I want to make the video about how to order the kulata from darlene. How do i do that. In thirty seconds it took me a week to you. Now have three minutes to talk about. All dali hazelnut pumps you tick. Tock is officially expanding it to three minutes. That's the new limit for video small. Change us applications now tick taw exactly because three minutes knackers. That's kind of a big deal. That is three times as long as tick tock has always been it's got to mess with the algorithm and it's going to show you different videos now totally different content and maybe make it feel more youtube i mean. Does this mean jack. We can put the intro this podcast now on tick-tock do we fit. Are we talking. I think we're chockablock. Docket wilder this is great. Let's just run with us. Let's just talk her mom's out the real story here isn't tick-tock it's by dense the private tech giant that owns tick-tock. If you're thinking take talks knackers start to think about bite dance as well last month. Pf wdm's leaked that tick talks. Owner by dance doubled their revenues last year to thirty four billion dollars. Okay so talk doing thirty. Four billion dollars jack. Can you sprinkle a little context on that number for us. Snapchat did two and a half billion in revenue last okay so snapshots doing a whole lot less than our buddies ever. Tectonic facebook did eighty six billion last lot. More than everybody's take talk tick-tock it's kind of in the media. Part of the curve of social media revenues also by dent has one point nine billion users. Yes they do. That's something we need to talk about. It is something we need to talk about which feels like a takeaway moment. So jack what's the takeaway for our buddies at tick-tock owner bite dance tick ducks greatest. Competitive advantage is that they straddle to worl. Funny thinks knackers that one point nine billion users number about tick-tock. It isn't just tick tock that's actually about tick-tock and do do jide do jin is tick tock sister. Yes nineties version. Only in china but it's also owned by. You may not have heard about do yen even though he may be ticked talking all the time. It's the same short form videos. It's the same dance routines the same makeup tutorials the same tips for how to keep your cool during a heatwave which my wife's been ticked talking all we gotta be talking. That also slight difference here between tick tock and do yet. yeah do. Yen is filtered through the chinese censor machine tic tac not as much otherwise. These two sister apps had the same algorithm different servers same owner but different countries so by dance has managed to straddle two worlds why all of the west including north america and europe big markets. Big mark as well as china jack. When about facebook. How about that's been banned in china since the star jack. How about snapchat also blocked in china jack. How about google. Google's not in china because open. Internet search is illegal in china so smackers tik toks owner bite. Dance could become the first tech company to hit a walk in four billion users because it straddles. Two worlds with two apps. Arrest of big tax is just in the west for our second story. Legalzoom just jumped thirty five percent on its ipo. Yes this store is not about the company it's about the company's piggyback legal zoom. Actually by the way tech company here but twenty year old tech company that been in the biz. Awhile out of law school they partner. They did and some celebrations are in order including for the co founder rob shapiro rob shapiro co founder of legalzoom in nineteen ninety-four was defending oj. Simpson as part of oj. Simpson's dream team. That's right there are a lot of. Ipo's last week. This was the only one where a member of oj simpson's legal team actually co founded the company. They must have been thinking. I'm making way too much money. I can't believe how much i can charge as lawyer vasily. I need to disrupt my old legal industry before someone else does. And here's what rob shapiro. Notice he noticed that only eight percent of legal work in the united states is provided online. There's an opportunity to offer lower price legal work using technology. Pretty simple so legalzoom is basically automating lawyer. Yeah you walk through some questions you give some information and boop you get the produced completed documents that you need to do your thing is basically agent are block but for the fine print things that could get you sued and screw turbo tax. Yes for wills and testaments. Here's the goal behind legalzoom. It's to get you legal work. You need without a single billable hour of a very expensive lawyer. Right if you click like the. I need help button. Yeah you might end up getting a lawyer on the line in which case you're gonna pay but typically if you want lille worked on either your splurging on an attorney or you're begging your buddies cousins aunts mom for advice which is awkward for about a or just pay seventy nine bucks illegals. That's there legalzoom. We jumped in snacks out to the ipo paperwork just notched its best year ever. We're talking half a billion dollars. In sales in two thousand twenty and this year growth is accelerating. They had twenty seven percent revenue growth. Not crazy for her. No it's not but it is twenty years old as he said. But here's what jack. And i find fascinating about legalzoom. The reason for these record numbers twenty twenty was the most entrepreneurial year in the united states. History bore businesses were created last year. That's right any year. Since we've been keeping the data. I was shocked by i was shot. We sat down. We stood up. We sat back down. But if you think about it. Digital startups are easier than ever to start. I mean he got shop. If i square at the all these tools that help you launch a business online. Even when you're working from home even if you've got one band with of wifi it's all you need and then you got the phenomenon known as the creator economy which is kind of a big deal. Everyone's favourite term from last year. It was like the seymour. Daryl hates his job and he's been sneaking into the storage closet to do a podcast. Guess what he turned that side us. Linda's full hustle. What i heard. Daryl sold that podcast spotify for one hundred trillion dollars jap that's why there's a huge demand for legalzoom services right. Now get this knackers. Ten percent of all new. Llc's registered in the united states. Last year used legalzoom to do it. Janine quit her job yesterday. Grab daryl together. They started like collagen. Coffee company filed their documents in delaware and they used legalzoom to produce. Put the copy on your face and you can drink fantastic jack. What's the takeaway for our buddies over at legalzoom is the piggyback stock to the creator. Now snacker you could frame legalzoom as just another enterprise software business to business company like docu sign or dropbox or salesforce out there or shop. A fire eventually but legalzoom's core revenues bit. Were new. it is. They make most of their buddy. When businesses are formed so legalzoom seventy nine dollars service fee so that you can launch. Your business is directly correlated to entrepreneurship and the trend. Right now. people are quitting their jobs. Yes they are. Companies like genuine get cheaply easy doing it online. So legalzoom isn't that trend but it's piggybacking on that trend for our third and final story. Exxon mobil is trying to convince the world. It's taken climate change very seriously. One of their top lobbyists is awesome. Really ruined that campaign. I mean can. I say it's maybe the most unusual snack story of the week. Jack being little self reflective here smackers. This story starts with greenpeace which just pulled a sting operation on exxonmobil. that's generous. I think we can more specifically call this borat operation. I think sasha. Baron cohen's evolved in the star dairy inspires knackers greenpeace engages in civil disobedience to protect mother. Earth at all costs. They don't hug trees. They protect them with their bodies. Some controversial moves doing that. By the way have kayaked in front of an oil rig. Yes they let their kayaks. Bob bears the oil rig. Can't go to see jill. That's what they do. They're also really good at stopping you off the subway and asking if you thirty minutes to make a donation which you definitely don't they also repelled off of a bridge to prevent said oil rig from cruising under the bridge. You have one hour. So i can tell you that what's happening to rabbits in norway. But this time greenpeace decided to put on a suit and pretend to be a corporate recruiter and they got an exxon mobil. Lobbyist to candidly. Speak his mind all on tape so not realizing he was being recorded and under false pretenses. Here's what the senior director of federal relations for the oil company. Exxon mobil actually said in real life. But before we tell you what he's at. Yeah we gotta say something a little context. If you seek government affairs or government relations you should think about lobby and if he here federal nations you should think about lobbying to senators and members of the house of representatives so this lobbyists said the exxon mobil quote unquote real then members of congress like they were fish specifically he referred to one crucial swing state sent which is funny because exxon mobil publicly says that they're committed to carbon capture in order to slow global warming. Anything the lobbyist actually says that's mainly for show not for real. Exxon mobil publicly says that they support a carbon tax to fight global warming. Well the lobby says that's a quote unquote knock gonna happen. Actually just a talking point for exxonmobil and finally exxon mobil says on their website that they understand climate risks. Well the lobbyist says they fight climate science and have back shadow groups to conduct research to cast doubt on all that climate science. This is all coming at a super awkward moment for exxon. Because it may we covered about exxon's embarrassing defeat in a big shareholder vote yes. Shareholders voted for major change and exxonmobil. Three new board members are on exxon mobil. Because they're proactive about. Climate change is dead a dragging their feet. Then you got this borat situation happening. That's so embarrassing. The ceo had to publicly apologize. Said the lobbyists doesn't reflect the views of exxon mobil. And nicot isaac if he doesn't reflect the views of exxon mobil. Why did he get promoted. So many times to become the senior lobbyist in charge of dc lobby. We're looking at the lincoln. We've seen the endorsement. So jack what's the takeaway for our buddies over at exxon mobil. There is good. Lobbying and there's babylon's knackers. Lobbying can be get like when a company understands lawmakers goals and then helps them achieve those goals for example. A lobbyist may say oh congresswoman. You want to protect children from car accidents and extra cameras going to raise the prices of cars. For what if we do some new mirrors instead win win. That would be an example of good lobby. You help the congressperson achieve our goal and you keep prices down and you know probably help your profits too on the other hand. Lobbying can be in bad faith. You know spreading misinformation to skew public opinions or to sway politicians kind of and fish sometimes lobbying financing politicians in a transactional profit boosting. Quid pro quo. So he got good lobbing you got bad lobbying. This was an example of some bad lobby jack. Kenya whip up the takeaways force. Before the three-day weekend tic tac is tripling. Their video limit.

"You know that kind of thing and so maybe there's a lot of psychological appeal there too. Yeah that's an interesting point. Maybe we can explore that a little bit more. Because that was one of the thoughts i had is. I was reading this. And we've talked briefly about my mom on the show specifically about the the covid vaccine. She forwarded me some email and some guy was calling the spike protein of bio weapon. Or what. I don't even remember the details but i guess that's my question. Are there certain demographics that are going to see someone. Like jenny. Mccarthy or not ace ventura. What's his real name. Kerry yeah jim carey in other know. There's some people that are gonna go well and maybe it's subconscious. But they're going to go. Oh i'd like his movies. So i'm gonna listen to him is is. Is that the big problem. It's not that it's a widespread problem. It's that focused demographics that say raise kids like parents. They're gonna listen to these people but there's many layers to that onion. I think that when you see a mother who is struggling with trying to sort out you know. Take care of her kid and do her best as a mother. Which probably jenny mccarthy was tr- truly trying to do in no doubt. She loves her son. Evan in that she was taking good care of them during that time and doing what she thought was best but what a former playboy model turned actress. Thinks is best is not necessarily what is best. But for a certain group of people who have empathy for her as a mother of an affected child who has certain challenges. There's a lotta pull there and a lot of You know heart goes out to our kind of thing and so they do trustor and because she has some resources she has a little bit. Megaphone gets a little bit better grip than others do. Yeah that's very true. Another thing i've noticed. And i'm i'm not the first person to say this. I have seen multiple times now that celebrities like this or maybe activists who oppose vaccines. They're actually pretty thoughtful people and they get really good at repeating their arguments and understanding what people are gonna come at them with. And i think if you're a parent hearing that for the first time it sounds really convincing and one of the classic examples is You know the cdc's vaccine schedules is ridiculous. You know you have to get all these shots bit. You know before two years of age. And i could see as a soon to be parents wide. That would be appealing. You go yeah you know. What are they need. Thirty shots or however many are on the schedule. Now why do they need so many. Maybe we could just space them out know that has a certain level of plausibility to it. So what do you think contributes to this as well. Oh absolutely you know an and it also it. It just causes that fear uncertainty in doubt. And it's your child so at some point something important than you know. And that's why all these things tend to be. Have a great deal of traction..

There's been a birthday party on the vessel earlier that evening and they're about twelve. People on board ship is prepping to head out to confront the french authorities conducting this nuclear test and right before the stroke of midnight an explosion rocks the vessel. Yeah and so as you can imagine. Chaos ensues the crew scrambles to escape. It's not the time to go into the engine room and see what made that noise. They wanna stay alive right. And that is where the first originates is in in or near the engineering right exactly and so everybody is getting off the vessel. And there's they wait for a second just a second. There's one guy.

"To so till nineteen ninety-six which is crazy to me despite these very intense protests and greenpeace says and argues that the initial test alone which was code-named all. Am i believe that. Tape announce it which happened on july second in nineteen sixty six spread contamination as far as peru and new zealand. That's that classical damage. We're talking about And oftentimes far exceeds initial expectations. Because you know there's all kinds of other variables like the winds and currents and things like that. So it's an absolute understatement to say that tensions ran high and they ran absolutely nuclear plan completely intended Man wasn't really a pun. Whatever it was very tense play was workplace. Thank you ben. I appreciate you have back But these french commandos had boarded a previous protest boat That trespassed into this exclusionary shipping zone. That was bordering. The toll and greenpeace knew full. Well or at least you know to some degree that the risks were there and they plan to monitor the impact of these tests and play and place protesters on the ground to monitor the actual blast your like. We can't stop you but the world will witness your actions on this day and these very motivated people. They are again. They're not working on a profit motive. They are working toward in their ideology. A better world and they're not there to attack. These military officers are attacked. The scientists conducting these tests. But they want to. They want to do their best to make it really inconvenient to conduct these tests. And you know i think in green pieces in greenpeace's favour they were one of the organizations that was openly saying something that i think a lot of governments were privately saying which is this. You all do not know the full extent of your actions. You do not know the consequences. You will probably mess something up. And maybe you'll get some valuable data but that is not going to improve the lives of the people who may suffer the consequences of these experiments despite being very aware of the dangers of nuclear armageddon. They were blissfully unaware of some things. Closer to home. You see folks. Greenpeace did not know that before. They went on this fateful trip to the toll. They had already been compromised. And for quite a while. and that's right. There was a person named christine carbon. She was not just your regular old person. She was an agent. Oh yeah a spy. She was working for france's director at for journal security or the digi s e. This is again in the same way. The cia operates outside of the us or am i six operates outside of the us. That's what this th this organization does. Dgse remember that name so she had gone in and volunteered to join greenpeace and back in the day around that time it was super easy to infiltrate greenpeace. You just said hey. I want to help. Come on in story checks out on board and she. She infiltrated through auckland new zealand. Which is interestingly enough. Where mer remember we already talked about this where the rainbow warrior had set out to go before they went over to the area where the testing is actually occurring. Because it's it's not that far away. And she posed as someone else she pretended to be someone named frederick bonlieu and she was and this character that she was portraying was an environmentalist.

"They're pretty well documented but they've also been have also been accused of either unintentionally or maybe intentionally exaggerating the severity of certain issues. Like i turned out. They were inaccurate. When they were reporting the amount of toxic waste on something called the brent spar oil storage buoy in nineteen ninety five and they they went back and corrected it but sort of the damage was done you know and then anybody was opposed to their agenda would be able to say these guys are making a mountain out of molehill their enemies progress etc etc etc in. Really just this anti nuclear weaponry deterrence proliferation. All that stuff being anti biotech anti innovation and some would argue that some have argued that it's really just an anti technology anti progress group. But i don. I don't know about that certainly been. They've been accused of that right. And i wanted to talk to you guys really quickly before we jump into the next section here this concept of being anti nuclear weapon testing. It's such a gray area for me. Because i guess and it weirdly and i. I haven't always felt this way. But simply because we've talked about on the show so many times the reasons that a country would have nuclear weapons. Have that capability and also show it off to an extent and learn as much as they can about it as a way of preventing themselves for being at risk from other world superpowers with nukes. I can see why a government for our country like france would be very much interested in testing nuclear weapons in the nineteen sixties and seventies as the cold. war is escalating between the the other superpowers. I can see why they would want to establish their position as a powerful nation. That can't be messed with. Essentially you know. There could be mac nations in south america and some of these other places where you know. The soviet union and the united states are playing their little war games and or terrorizing humans and nations. Like they would want that really badly and could be very beneficial for all of the citizens of france to the greater good argument. I think i can see four france. Four people in charge there. It's tough to say that to the people at the testing sites though right exactly on the other side you're wreaking absolute havoc on people in the environment which they lived for you know however many generations. I'm not saying the nuclear testing is a good thing. I'm saying that. I can see more clearly now why. It was viewed as so important to the french government. Yeah and we've. We've talked about similar highly unethical problems in the past. Imagine being one of those. Us scientists who says okay. Our best plan is to steal the bodies of children and everybody signed off on it because they thought they thought it was a dirty job but it was ultimately better world and you know that's up to future historians to debate the accuracy of that or the sincerity. I would argue but at the end of that guy. I agree with you. I think it's not hard for any of us to see why greenpeace's stance in the nineteen seventies and then later we're about to enter into of being against nuclear testing. Was kind of a no brainer. Yes well you. A lot of people can get behind that notion. But what's the alternative by being against nuclear testing. Are you also just purely against nuclear weapons. Yeah that's that's the thing because It's a dual use technology. There's not really cheap. It's really tough. It's tall milkshake to continually monitor a country with nuclear capabilities and somehow insure that they never just keep the center. Futures spinning to the point did they create nuclear weapons..

"Is seen as an environmental crime have brought greenpeace a lot of attention over the years a ton of attention. But make no mistake folks. Not all of this. Attention is positive. This is true but let's not forget the greenpeace also active in the legal and regulatory spheres and have been a huge voice in pushing for tighter environmental regulation and oversight and like we said earlier. Just the kinds of things that you would associate probably automatically with when you when you think of greenpeace And sometimes these efforts Have been very successful And today the organization has a pretty small staff. Most of whom are volunteers and a lot of their funding comes from donations from individuals. So how do we separate kind of the fact and fiction and the controversy Three kind tiers of today's episode and greenpeace. Yeah it's a good question. Also as you can imagine greenpeace sees itself speaking truth to power right. These are folks who are. Nobody is involved in greenpeace to get rich. They are as you said volunteers. And they get into direct conflict with some of the world's most powerful institutions some of the biggest corporations that you may or may not have heard of as well as well as you pointed out that state level actors and so of course. This creates a lot of criticism. But it's not just from these institutions. You know what i mean. It's not just like planet villains having a problem with captain planet and the what do you call the planet. Here's shout out to hartman. Always that the short end of the stick but he did get a monkey. He did have among monkeys news. The guy's name was no gosh. There was kwami he was water. I'll gosh i'm. I'm really doing bad with my captain planet trivia but the monkey was adorable. you're right. The heart didn't really get a sense that that would it was power to make people like you know feel emotional. I guess so. You can change hearts and minds. I mean the hardest connected to the mind and if you can change hearts guys you can do anything so secretly. It was a mind control power all along. Yeah they just didn't want to spook everyone but the reason we're bringing up this captain planet. Comparison is because it's important to know that not all the people who criticize greenpeace over the years are like gazprom or something or the french military or something. There are people who have worked for greenpeace in the past that are no longer with the organization and have some pretty bluntly critical things to say about it. But because this is a loose-knit organization with several different types of causes a lot of the criticism tends to be issue specific so somebody might say for instance in just a made up example. Someone might say. Look i am totally with greenpeace. We need to end wailing now. But they're acting crazy when they're against nuclear power clean. Energy is the way of the future. You know what i mean. So they might not through the entire organizational baby out with the bathwater but again they're critics are not all evil in two thousand sixteen one hundred seven hundred and seven nobel prize. Laureates signed a letter begging greenpeace to stop its opposition to gmo's genetically modified organisms. You can read about these incidents..

"And so i kind of started it in that place which didn't always it wasn't always that way as i continued through my professional work but but even in that thinking of flat hierarchy there is a hierarchy in saying flat. Hierarchies are the best because that in itself hierarchy of thinking you've decided this is the best so really. There's a paradoxical challenge in saying that. There's no hierarchy. Do you know what i mean. We'll cut out. All of this is going to make sense. I can send anyways Let's think of some person who walks around the earth as And gives up all of his possessions her his or her possessions and And ages walk around and try to help people or whatever you could see how that person although all they do is help people if they think that they are better than the guy driving his mercedes so even within the person who seems to be more of a martyr martyr even even that person can have this hierarchy like. Oh i'm better than you. Because i gave everything up absolutely i mean that is like we. You know the person who says will you do this job for a living and i do this job for a living which makes me better. There's a paradox in that. Because you're deciding what's better. So you're saying i work for greenpeace and you work for a bank. And therefore i'm a better person but you then put a hierarchy. This happens all the time with tolerance which people don't love that word anymore. It's just a good example. People aren't tolerant of the were tolerant. A lot of people who preach tolerance are sometimes intolerant of other people's intolerance. Do see the paradoxical challenge. Here what is this. It's almost a hip.

Boris Johnson says Britain needs its own Green New Deal

"Boris johnson has always been keen to burn it his green credentials and put tackling climate. Change at the front of his government's. Agenda is done so again this week setting out a long-awaited plan to make the uk a world leader in green technology as with most government announcements. However that will plenty of spending commitments already made being re announced but the most auden criticism came from the tories who said it goes against. The party's new electoral base and could cost them votes but business secretary. Alex chama rejected this notion. This is about leveling up across our country. We're talking about twelve billion pounds and he has around. Four billion pounds of this is new money. Other money is money that's been pledged previously on deed lost budget in in in march Book very importantly This billion pounds will help to bring in three times as much in terms of private sector money and supporting create two hundred and fifty thousand jobs but the have been some critics of this plan arguing that it really doesn't go far enough. The shuttle business sexually. Ed milliband made this point. There is an urgency. That isn't enough ambition. That isn't a real plan. He's got to do better in all of our interests that he does better. We will keep pushing the government on ambition on jobs on appropriate plan to rise to the scale of the climate emergency. We face chimp. Let's begin with this. Ten point plan of boys. Johnson set out in article in the financial times. In fact what did you make of it and how much of it was new money and new policy okay so this was a very long awaited announcement. They were meant to originally Back in the summer and it slipped because of pressures on number ten prime minister announced twelve billion pounds states investment program when you went through the numbers at ten about three billion pounds this new at included five hundred million hydrogen one billion pounds insulation three hundred million pounds for nuclear industry. I think what was interesting even if the money was pretty small. Change when you compare it said of the countries like franz chemmy refute these comparisons jeremy kuban late manifesto prince lansing which lici tuten sums of hundreds of billions of pounds of buried money. Guns was agreement. Deo i think it's still a political moment because as always this tension between people saying let's go green other Saying it will damage economy People in cost known areas concerned type. Slutty jim republic who worry about paying extra tax also green initiatives ambrose johnson especially saying worry we can. Tiny's these things together. We make sure. Green economic growth happens in some of the left behind redwood areas and talking about place humble months for over northeast. police o'clock. It's wonderful to have you on the podcast. What were your thoughts. When you saw this announcement here because johnson has talked a lot about green policy arisons locked summer but it fuses if that rhetoric has increase as jim said that is new money on some new policies to go with it to there is a but by i know about this was a. It's brilliant. Hear a british conservative prime minister coming up with a plan like this. Because although we've had david cameron promising the government ever and then we had theresa may actually legislating for a net zero twenty fifty which was very pioneering for a country the size of britain at the time. The thing is. We really haven't seen a prime minister set out in a speech or in a plan like this thing as visionary really and it is a great vision. Unfortunately it's really not matched by detailed plans and considering that a large chunk of it is dependent on trying to mobilize private investor capital. I'm just concerned that it's really not going to make. Investors are not going to invest unless they see the detailed policy until they know what the shape of any sort of regulatory framework has got to look like really not going to get people plowing in at the rate needed to fulfill this and when it comes to actually meeting that net zero goal twenty fifty. It's really not on track to do that. Unfortunately the classic example about chocolate changing which is provided uncertainty from best is if you look at one of the atoms. Boris johnson announcement which was carbon capture storage. Which is basically succour Boats on you bury it. The browns the tools boom cameron government promised been impounds towards that twenty fifteen a group of plug on that money or johnston's done this year's he promised eight hundred pounds in the spring budget yet. Another challenge main pounds this week. Hey presto Where we were five years ago with basically almost leg progress on cca. Yeah that's exactly. It had this sort of crisis. Feel about it really. Is you know god. We've got to do something on climate. Okay what do we do on electric cars. Oh i know will bring the target ford. That's actually relatively easy to do. It's important but unless it's matched by holocene setting out how people are going to be able to buy more electric cars and how the rollout of the charging infrastructure is going to work. You know it's really difficult to see how it works. I expected a guest to say something a little more meditative parts of this plan on you when it comes to the targets for making sure that new homes not built with natural gas boilers in them. For example you know that's really quite important. And of course at target itself has been brought forward slightly from twenty five to twenty twenty three at same these support for hydrogen also important but again. You look at what germany's doing in its recovery plan. It's got around. Forty forty billion set aside for electric cars renewable energy and so forth and france around thirty billion euros set aside nine billion of that is for hydrogen renewables alone so compared to that. The u k plan does look a little small were jim. This is one thing critics of picked up on the plan. Even who is labour's shadow. Business secretary has said it doesn't remotely meet the scale of what is needed. I think greenpeace charity have said similar things to all those criticisms fad. You because when it comes to government spending you can always make the case you should be spending more doing more radical things and as please note. This is a conservative government. This is not natural territory. Full them yet. But i think the first point to make our show on the business sexually set on the radio. This is a down payment but that will be more. Fiscal events is quite possible than the spending review. The we see next week that could be more money for example nuclear. They could say they're gonna stop negotiation sizewell c Pass station which would of course involve more money. And i think as well now. He's talking about how these provides whole sums compared to labor government beginning right now the thing to remember Tackle climate change isn't just about state.

Boris Johnson says Britain needs its own Green New Deal

"Boris johnson has always been keen to burn it his green credentials and put tackling climate. Change at the front of his government's. Agenda is done so again this week setting out a long-awaited plan to make the uk a world leader in green technology as with most government announcements. However that will plenty of spending commitments already made being re announced but the most auden criticism came from the tories who said it goes against. The party's new electoral base and could cost them votes but business secretary. Alex chama rejected this notion. This is about leveling up across our country. We're talking about twelve billion pounds and he has around. Four billion pounds of this is new money. Other money is money that's been pledged previously on deed lost budget in in in march Book very importantly This billion pounds will help to bring in three times as much in terms of private sector money and supporting create two hundred and fifty thousand jobs but the have been some critics of this plan arguing that it really doesn't go far enough. The shuttle business sexually. Ed milliband made this point. There is an urgency. That isn't enough ambition. That isn't a real plan. He's got to do better in all of our interests that he does better. We will keep pushing the government on ambition on jobs on appropriate plan to rise to the scale of the climate emergency. We face chimp. Let's begin with this. Ten point plan of boys. Johnson set out in article in the financial times. In fact what did you make of it and how much of it was new money and new policy okay so this was a very long awaited announcement. They were meant to originally Back in the summer and it slipped because of pressures on number ten prime minister announced twelve billion pounds states investment program when you went through the numbers at ten about three billion pounds this new at included five hundred million hydrogen one billion pounds insulation three hundred million pounds for nuclear industry. I think what was interesting even if the money was pretty small. Change when you compare it said of the countries like franz chemmy refute these comparisons jeremy kuban late manifesto prince lansing which lici tuten sums of hundreds of billions of pounds of buried money. Guns was agreement. Deo i think it's still a political moment because as always this tension between people saying let's go green other Saying it will damage economy People in cost known areas concerned type. Slutty jim republic who worry about paying extra tax also green initiatives ambrose johnson especially saying worry we can. Tiny's these things together. We make sure. Green economic growth happens in some of the left behind redwood areas and talking about place humble months for over northeast. police o'clock. It's wonderful to have you on the podcast. What were your thoughts. When you saw this announcement here because johnson has talked a lot about green policy arisons locked summer but it fuses if that rhetoric has increase as jim said that is new money on some new policies to go with it to there is a but by i know about this was a. It's brilliant. Hear a british conservative prime minister coming up with a plan like this. Because although we've had david cameron promising the government ever and then we had theresa may actually legislating for a net zero twenty fifty which was very pioneering for a country the size of britain at the time. The thing is. We really haven't seen a prime minister set out in a speech or in a plan like this thing as visionary really and it is a great vision. Unfortunately it's really not matched by detailed plans and considering that a large chunk of it is dependent on trying to mobilize private investor capital. I'm just concerned that it's really not going to make. Investors are not going to invest unless they see the detailed policy until they know what the shape of any sort of regulatory framework has got to look like really not going to get people plowing in at the rate needed to fulfill this and when it comes to actually meeting that net zero goal twenty fifty. It's really not on track to do that. Unfortunately the classic example about chocolate changing which is provided uncertainty from best is if you look at one of the atoms. Boris johnson announcement which was carbon capture storage. Which is basically succour Boats on you bury it. The browns the tools boom cameron government promised been impounds towards that twenty fifteen a group of plug on that money or johnston's done this year's he promised eight hundred pounds in the spring budget yet. Another challenge main pounds this week. Hey presto Where we were five years ago with basically almost leg progress on cca. Yeah that's exactly. It had this sort of crisis. Feel about it really. Is you know god. We've got to do something on climate. Okay what do we do on electric cars. Oh i know will bring the target ford. That's actually relatively easy to do. It's important but unless it's matched by holocene setting out how people are going to be able to buy more electric cars and how the rollout of the charging infrastructure is going to work. You know it's really difficult to see how it works. I expected a guest to say something a little more meditative parts of this plan on you when it comes to the targets for making sure that new homes not built with natural gas boilers in them. For example you know that's really quite important. And of course at target itself has been brought forward slightly from twenty five to twenty twenty three at same these support for hydrogen also important but again. You look at what germany's doing in its recovery plan. It's got around. Forty forty billion set aside for electric cars renewable energy and so forth and france around thirty billion euros set aside nine billion of that is for hydrogen renewables alone so compared to that. The u k plan does look a little small were jim. This is one thing critics of picked up on the plan. Even who is labour's shadow. Business secretary has said it doesn't remotely meet the scale of what is needed. I think greenpeace charity have said similar things to all those criticisms fad. You because when it comes to government spending you can always make the case you should be spending more doing more radical things and as please note. This is a conservative government. This is not natural territory. Full them yet. But i think the first point to make our show on the business sexually set on the radio. This is a down payment but that will be more. Fiscal events is quite possible than the spending review. The we see next week that could be more money for example nuclear. They could say they're gonna stop negotiation sizewell c Pass station which would of course involve more money. And i think as well now. He's talking about how these provides whole sums compared to labor government beginning right now the thing to remember Tackle climate change isn't just about state. Money is also about regulation so of course the bundle twenty fifty borrowing in new pets from these laws as an example of wet government does not have to spend the money it can regulate and things happen and so many of these decisions of stems from theresa. May's decision donning moments of her administration commit twenty-fifty net zero target. Only kind of off the thought. She the mohanchris coop suasion joyfulness.

"With us today, we have the Amazing Justin Fella Aka five, eighty five. He's Guatemalan American artists from Nevada known for his large scale sculptures that plays with American pop culture and the lat next experienced. He's the host of a couple of podcasts including the art people podcast and one of my favorite podcasts. Latinos who lunch welcomed Fathi. Welcome. Still trying to figure out technology. Technical difficulties. We're like we're right there. Thank you. Thank you for having me. I am in Las Vegas Nevada right now since. Yes in city where people don't believe that wearing masks is a big so. Crystal. Very similarly. You know we we started working at Greenpeace right around the same time and we really didn't see a lot of lat next representation in the environmental movement in these big green organizations and so we thought hey, like maybe we can just do something like that and on your show you talk about sort of the intersection between being Queer Latinas and sort of like this idea of Spangler. Inside this Anglo world out what do you think is the importance of intersection analogy was important to talk about. Oh my gosh. That's one of the. That's one of the big big missions of Lebanon's lunches that. If it's not intersectional it it's really not for for anyone really like if it's not intersect, the revolution is intersectional whom we will never be free basically you know. So from the very beginning, we've been checking ourselves on our privilege as gender males on the show, and because we recognize the all the you know the misogyny within own you know belief systems just based on how we were raised in America and I'm saying America like North South and Central America and so And then something that happened maybe like a year or two intellectuals who lunch was the recognition of the erasure of Central American culture, and also after let me move out. So we actively before people are using the term anti-racists or. Really. Intersection analogy I think I heard that a lot after the the white woman's March that happened a few years ago So but they got fizzy hatsaw haven't seen many at the black lives haven't seen many at the black lives matter protests but so wh-. Anyway, We really we really started paying attention to like oh my gosh we're really like Mexico centric on our show we need to actively be anti-black and talk about colors and talk about the erasure of offer. Let the needle on our show and we recognize that it was our own. You know that was our one of our personal goal was to really openly talk about that and have sometimes uncomfortable conversation. Let I love what you said. We can't have revolution if it's not intersectional because the sort of Traumas and the histories and experiences are compounded with each identity that include you both you know in a way that's like. Boosts Society and helps you in society also not. About yeah. especially with climate change because at the end of the day, we're all going to be affected by climate change but to what degree and how soon it really depends on where you are how much you have, how much you given, how much you're supported in society. It's funny because like recycling and incur the environment it seen this very same in or you know white people saying but it's like no dinos have been trying to take care of the environment for a very long time. We just don't talk about it in the same way you know what I mean. So I mean I also like to pretend that I'm Vegan. Just people mad because you know that's US relegated to just white people. You know I'm so like Oh. Yeah. I. Don't I don't wanna eat cows anymore because it's bad for the environment and that's like the real thing that I'm doing now that we're talking about claim it and how much Linex do people care about it maybe not in the same context that you know white people are recycling or being around this like we have our willows. Teaching on like here's the. Deal or like rub this like urban you're like sore foot and you'll wake up of. The best. Or some other iteration of that Linex people care about the environment and we quote like or reference this study that happened recently at Yale that seventy percent of people in the United States, Horley care about the environment, and so how do you see that or not see that reflected in our culture and how do you see annex values reflected in the conversation around the environment? yeah, I mean there's there's very different schools of thinking within my own family for example, but like my will lead, you know isolated people do it saying this online to we've been saving plastic bags and containers from jump? Right. That's just something that we do in our like is that sour cream in the fridge? That's probably. Some leftover beans or something. You never know you never know I'm so in little ways like that we're very resourceful as Latinos because we have to be, but also it's just part of our culture even in Latin? America. But I am example that pops up to my pops up to my head is recently visited what the my life for the first time as an adult and went back to where my mom is from this little little village called. We let the in Garland which is right in the center of a psychopath in Guatemala and so. HALF OF MY A. Family are farmers and then half of them are. are raise cattle So it's like. That's when I realized like Yo my family is responsible for like the deforestation of Quantum Allah because I'm seeing all this open land my GRANDPA has. but they don't see that way. They're like, no cows our money we're going to raise cows we're GONNA make you know we're gonna them or dairy cow. So then we'll be sold for me and so there's this acres and acres of land that my family owns that is is just it's just grass now when it used to be rich rainforest

Climate campaigners win London airport expansion case.

"Plans for a third runway at London. Heathrow airport have been thrown into doubt after a court ruling. The government's decision to allow the expansion was unlawful because it did not take climate commitments into accounts the court of Appeal said he throws said it would challenge the decision but the government said it would not appeal. The case was brought by environmental groups councils and the mayor of London Friends of the Earth one of the environmental groups that brought the case said the ruling was an absolutely groundbreaking result. Climate Justice will rundle head of legal. The campaign group said this judgment has exciting wider implications for keeping climate change at the heart of old planning decisions. It's time for developers and public authorities to be held to account when it comes to the climate impact of their damaging. Developments Greenpeace said. The government needed to permanently ground. Heathrow's expansion plans the UK's executive director. John Sullivan said the third runway is already on its knees over costs noise air pollution habitat loss and lack of access. Now Heathrow has yet another impossibly high hurdle to clear. Mp's voted overwhelmingly to support Heathrow expansion in two thousand eighteen.

Why Cheap Solar Could Save the World

The Indicator from Planet Money

Why Cheap Solar Could Save the World

"So the other day Darius we took a little trip to a huge apartment complex in New York it is enormous one of the biggest biggest in the world. It spans like ten city blocks in New York houses around thirty thousand people. Yeah and it's known locally as stuyvesant town or Sta towns down a uh-huh cool village cat. It's like a bunch of giant brick towers sort of all identical in rows and we were there because because of an indicator an indicator given to us by Ben Ho. He's an economist at Vassar College. Yeah and Ben says this indicator is a big deal a milestone down and win this indicator hit this milestone. Ben said he was like Oh my God. I thought there should be parades and like people cheering and instead like there's a the articles and like the trade press and people haven't talked about much. I think it's a contender for the most important indicator of all time the most important indicator for all time at least for me. Ooh Okay make your case. This is fascinating. What is this indicator? Indicator is the cost of solar electricity specifically that the cost of solar electricity has been falling by a lot not falling by so much. It's actually now competitive with fossil fuels. It's gotten that cheap which brought us to the roof of a twenty storey brick building in February roof that has now covered in solar panels. And we were there. Because this roof is owned by one of the biggest baddest most profit focus companies on Wall Street in large large part because of Ben's indicator this is the indicator from planet money. I'm Stacey Smith and we are on the roof of building. We're here twenty or so stories above these filaret colds today on the show the price of solar what changed and I've been thinks this so important. It's a little windy too. Beautiful View his beautiful this message comments from NPR sponsored show. Bonnie Haute made to taste just like milk. Doc It's creamy frothy and great with coffee and cookies but without the dairy because it's not milk it's almost milk new Shabani owed support also also comes from the capital. One saver card earned four percent cashback on dining and entertainment to percents at grocery stores and one percent on all other purchases now. Now when you go out you cash in capital one. What's in your wallet? Terms apply back in two thousand six. Ben Ho was the lead energy economist. Missed under president. George W Bush and he was part of a team looking for energy alternatives economically viable energy alternative. Being the operative word there the energy source to beat was coal it was the cheapest source of energy and back then like solar was almost like a joke. At the time I was looking at the numbers and cost five cents ends or four cents per kilowatt hour natural gas also in that range and sold there was like a dollar per kilowatt hour. Oh Wow and you were just like this. This is never going to be cost effective. You heard that correctly recklessly. Solar Power was twenty times more expensive than coal solar was just never gonNA happen. It was a non starter. It was a punchline and then something changed changed actually a bunch of. Something's yeah a lot of small things that took the price down by five or ten percent so for one thing. Government subsidies on the state and federal level brought costs down for businesses and residents got more people to buy into solar which meant more companies started making solar panels and then companies that made solar panels started competing against each other tomake cheaper more efficient panels as a result. The panel's got nearly twice as efficient and the price dropped from about a thousand dollars per panel to around one hundred and fifty dollars per panel today. Hey It's a series of sort of small process improvements over the past ten fifteen years for the cost down like a magical amount of money a magical amount of money. The prices solar job by more than ninety ninety percent from one dollar per kilowatt hour fifteen years ago to four cents per kilowatt hour today and that is today's indicator four four cents per kilowatt hour. which makes the cheapest form of electricity in the US and also in the world cheaper than cheaper natural gas jubilant coal cheaper than coal? Oh my drop. Yes because when that happens is ben everything changed and then thinks this will take solar power from like a fringy source of energy to a major maybe even the main source of energy in the world but at this point solar energy still only accounts for about two percent of the energy in the US I think that's totally changes. At least how icy climate change right so before when like solar and renewables more expensive it was all about sort of getting people to like sacrifice to do the right thing And now it's actually just getting people to save money. I mean if we're looking at pure economics though I mean if solar is only two percent and we have these huge entrenched energy can companies from the biggest companies in the world. That have a lot of money. A lot of jobs tied up in traditional like fossil fuels and those kinds of energies. Like how I mean. That seems like some daunting economics to overcome right. I think I'm a big believer in the markets. Now the soldiers act cheaper. Actually think that the market and capitalist pretty powerful driving force to move people torward the cheapest form of energy and you see that happening right So they just had the biggest year in history in the United States because of just the fallen costs companies like facebook book and Microsoft have started investing millions of dollars in solar energy and so has blackstone blackstone in case. You haven't heard them a giant Wall Street private equity firm Um and Hedge Fund. Basically they deal with money. Enormous amounts so much money. They manage hundreds of billions of dollars yep blackstone definitely really not like a hippy. dippy let's all try to save the Planet Company. No no no. This is not like reusable tote bag Greenpeace canvasser type company. They care about the bottom line and blackstone has started investing millions in Solar Power Blackstone owns the company that manages Stuy town the apartment complex in New York with all the solar panels and Kelly vaas is the CEO of that division of the company. And he oversaw this big solar project and he took us out to the roof to check out the solar panels firsthand. We're standing standing on the rooftop status in town and you're looking at a few of the nine thousand six hundred seventy one solar panels that we put on rooftops to be precise and isn't isn't the that's for size. Nine thousand six hundred and seventy one solar panels on building after building just spanning ten. The city blocks just laid out before us. All these buildings like as far as we can buildings so as you can see like how many square feet of roof twenty two acres does that have to do the math on the square feet on that. We did the math. We did the math and it is almost a million square feet of roof all painted white and all covered in shiny black glass solar solar panels all about the size of a foosball table. Kellyanne is team installed the panels last year and they estimated it will reduce Stuy town carbon footprint by about sixteen percent so the project cost of eleven million. That's a lot. Will you lose money on it as a cost neutral we make a little money we we we will have a return on investment. It's not significant. It's it's not a lot of money but it is definitely not a loss if it had been a loss Kelly. They couldn't have really considered going solar now that they have these panels up and running. Kelly says lots of other building managers and businesses have been taking exactly this tour that we took asking about how they might go solar as well. What's the biggest this question that you get from people who are considering doing it? Did you make money on it. They want to know. Is there a return on it. Is it affordable all of those things and in the answer for I was yes blackstone was so jazzed about the results of its Stuy town project it is investing another eight hundred and fifty million dollars and solar and this says Ben is exactly clear why he thinks the cheapness of solar is the most important indicator of all time on this sort of problem of climate change. I think yeah I've optimism. I think in part because a lot of the stories you hear about climate change all assume that coal-based future I mean listen. Climate change is not over as a problem Ben Points out. There is still significant obstacles to overcome if solar is to become a major energy source for the world. I mean for one thing. It only works when the sun is out. That's a problem battery technology that could store. Solar Energy is in great right now also the panels would need to get more efficient for all of STA towns. Nine thousand Rosen odd solar panels. Solarte will still only supply about six percent of the energy for the apartment complex. Still says now that economics is on its side. Now that the mathworks he thinks solar has a bright view. Now now biggest hurdles past right. I think it's for me. Is the most exciting indicator. It makes me optimistic about the future.

"Aaron Quarter in Georgia Her Sti or two of three Co founders of frailty myths is an organization based in Oakland California whose mission is to reimagined feminine any and build power by bringing our whole selves into our work of cultivating place wherever and however we do that they join us today to explore health concept of frailty miss can be implicit elicit bias in the gardening world. And how we're all better off when we can see these biases admits for what they are and compost them openly into more nurturing concepts around self and other. Thank you for being here today. And welcome Georgia and Erin Erin. Thank you so much for having us. Hi there so I want to get started with the two of you giving me your work in your own own words because it's always better that way. Let's start with you Aaron because you are the one that reached out to me to see about vote having a conversation. About where your work. And my work intersects in that beautiful space absolutely. Thank you so much for having us. I'm so excited to be here and talk to you more about about what we do not miss about what you do at cultivating increase. So yeah frailty miss is a is a nonprofit that was started by Georgia myself. Another Co founder of ours and we've existed since two thousand in sixteen in Oakland California. That's where we're based out of. But we host workshops all across the country for Women Trans and gender non conforming folks and the mission of frailty miss is to create a space in a community where Women Trans and gender non-conforming folks can heal trump Z.. Trauma that what is Patriarchy that is generational trauma and have a space to reconnect with our feelings of strength power community and justice. And we do that. Through hosting free workshops in the community on skills and spaces are traditionally dominated by men and that includes woodworking sailing climbing gardening cultivation And our goal is to build a space and build a community where we can try new skills through. We can try new things where we can challenge ourselves and again break free of that myth that to be a woman to to not be man means that we are weak and don't have the ability you to be strong and changed the world. Yeah I love the three part sentence I guess there are three part phrase or motto auto on the website. Feel your inner power. Grow your confidence change the world. That is to such beautiful some Asian Let's move to so you Georgia with the way you see the work. Maybe in any different way than Aaron just described and or maybe your were your personal experience of it short and I Echo Erin as far as Thanks for having and I think I agree with everything that Aaron said. The piece that has felt especially powerful mean in the last few years is part of the journey that that Aaron and I and the other frailty facilitators as part of the work and as part of the workshops that has been particularly profound is a The quality of nurturing and curiosity and care and so there is what feels to me a very revolutionary act and not only taking space base back but kind of reconnecting and healing from the impacts in the Traumas of these oppressive systems. That we've internalized in such a deep painful away and the ways that we can connect that back to Earth to gardening to self and community reliance the way that we hold each other and and navigate through conflict to do that in a way where we're collectively lifting each other up in healing versus tearing each other down or kind of competing. They're all of these very small on very profound ways that were also challenging these systems that have unfortunately become really normalized. And that we've internalized in ways that for myself I often often find myself myself out of frailty myth workshop being desperately moved or touched by something that someone has said or shared in realize is that it was some pain from some experience I had tucked so far away that it didn't have words for it now through the act of building a stool or or failing at a thing thing that someone didn't think that they could do but feeling in a way that safe has allowed them to access and me to access these these kinds of points of pain and then he'll from them and that feels when it comes to change in the world and the work that frailty Mrs doing in that we're doing within all of our communities Ryan's hands are really really like there isn't much I haven't found other spaces for. Yeah and you know one of the reasons that I find this. So so compelling is when you think about gardening which is my primary focus it? It is easy to say. Oh yeah there's a lot of women who guarded like how many how many women don't garden. It can be seen as a very female dominated space but the fact is there are whole sections of the gardening world. In its wholeness that are traditionally not taken up by women and you know seeing one of your videos that that is showing your community how to use a skill saw how to pound nail how to build a whole structures pictures how to do you know whatever the kind of hands on construction bigger machinery work that makes gardening in landscaping even on small scales. Easier and more interesting and you can just do more with it are often like Oh. I'M GONNA get many of my husband to do that or my my brother or my dad and the empowerment that is taken away from you with that mindset is incredible so I was super excited to have this conversation with you. I'm fifty four. I only learned how to use a table. saw maybe five years ago and it's one of the greatest tools ever uh-huh okay so let's step back a little bit till we get into more detail on exactly what you do when you're workshops and into some of that more emotional space of what happens when we unlock this kind of power for ourselves and tell us a little bit about each of you and kind of where you grew up where what were your experiences that led you you to be people that wanted to do this kind of work which is is a little challenging. It's it's probably Expansive in sometimes painful ways which I think Georgia already kind of hinted at And yet like those growing pains. Get us where we want want to be so. Let's start with you Georgia since they started with Aaron before tell us a little bit about your own background. And what kind of grew you into who woman Were person that wanted to be doing this kind of work. I grew up in Indiana and in in a relatively big family but was the first girl born in my family and kind of grew up and spent most of my adolescence and into my early teenage years feeling really isolated. Because I wasn't the kind of girl that all of the people around me were that people wanted me to be. I would get like like I didn't connect with those with makeup and and I remember really being really frustrated as a young person thinking like well. Why don't and why do I have to fight so hard to get access to do to do fun stuff or to be in my body and why is it so I felt kind of shame that I wanted to be more physical and also frustrated and angry that I didn't feel like I was allowed to do that but also shame that I wasn't doing a good job of being a girl and also really angry women because I felt like they were the ones that were putting in? This felt like a very suffocating box and so I kind of found myself UNIN journey of both being like of of isolating myself away away from women in turning myself into this kind of like go. I'm not like the other girls. I'm not like the other women because I felt like that was the only way I could get access and it was really. It was a really lonely and really frustrating and like I said. I carried a lot of Shane for many years around that I was I was failing as a woman. I was wasn't doing what I was meant to be doing. Is A girl and I also wasn't getting the same kind of access or space to the things that I I wanted to do and felt as I as I got older they went to school. I met Aaron in college and I started really kind of unpacking and learning about systems of oppression. Shen particularly of Patriarchy about you know movements that I didn't know about and started to really unpack. My anger toward women didn't wasn't wasn't actually about women in the box that I was felt restricted to was was a result of these these oppressive systems and so I moved moved into working in activism. I always had odd jobs mechanic shops. I found myself working on Greenpeace ships where I was trying to get as much as many skills as I could and Aaron at the same time was in Grad school and we had these simultaneous conversations. About what space space look like. And what access look like in the way it was manifesting in our lives and I remember feeling like that was in so much kind of physical and emotional oceana pain that I felt like my option in shit filled with with men from all over the world was to either assimilate into this very toxic culture masculinity of of posturing of pretending like I didn't have feelings or emotions or that I wouldn't have access to anything if I if there was some other way into into that kind of idea failed to was birthed about what it looks like. Would it would look like and feel like to create a space where we could be our whole selves where we could be honest about our fear of table saw and still learn to use it where he had smashed things with hammers and still gently hold flowers and appreciate them in that. You know that none of those things are inherently gendered gender you identify with or whatever gender identify with is fundamentally what those things are. Because I'm doing them and so there was I think in the creation of frailty medicine the the burning of the of the idea was a very long kind of life life journey that we were on an independently and then collectively and I think for me. It really comes down to a practice that has never stopped. which is how can I? It'd be more hole in. How can I be more fully in my whole self? And how can I heal the shame that I've built up over the years about pieces of myself. I didn't feel like I was allowed to access and so for me failty miss because I'm very comfortable with tools has opened up space for me to be more in touch with things that I felt like. I wasn't allowed to do like gardening and like baking or being gentle or telling people that I'm scared or that I don't want help worried where I do want help. And so there's a wholeness there that I think for me has been something that even though that's why the organization started the manifestation and what it feels like is. There hasn't been something that I have experienced. That is more powerful in my own than allowing myself to be in that kind of space and seeing what it does for other people to be respected as their whole selves and not need the answers. You know
