"And Louisville, Kentucky Mayor Greg Fischer and early voting got under way this weekend. Georgia for the Senate runoff elections. Once again, the Atlanta Hawks opened up their arena for early voting. Hawks lead owner and areas Management Chairman Tony Ressler is here on what they're doing, and it's the first anniversary of the U. S Space force. I'll talk to its commander General John Raymond about what it's done so far, and what comes next. But first what happens when the federal government has decided to go ahead with a national project that requires use of state lands? That's the question the Supreme Court is being asked to the side with New Jersey, claiming the federal government can't seize lands belonging to it to build a national gas pipeline across 116 miles of New Jersey and Pennsylvania. I talked to Joan Dress skin. Interstate Natural gas of America general counsel to get her point of view on the case. It's a case about a state's ability Total unilaterally Vito subject to its sole discretion, federally approved projects. This decision provides a blueprint to other states and individuals who wish to stop infrastructure development. What's important to note is that Congress amended the Natural Gas Act. The statute, which Governs the sighting construction of interstate gas pipes in 1947 to provide interstate gas pipes with eminent domain authority, and it did so because of that time individual states. Landowners and proponents of competing fuels were frustrating The construction interstate gaspipe, it'd already been improved by the federal regulator and for over 70 years, pipelines states. In the federal regulator who determines the route. The pipeline should take have always believed that tape lines have the right to develop infrastructure on state land and with crucial here is despite over 70 years and working through that, and under that construct Jersey, is seeking to veto a federally approved pipeline. Exact reason why Congress amended the Natural Gas Act to include an eminent domain provision, so already confessed. This is Mary the law that I don't know much about. I don't have much experience. But has it been the case that over over 70 years, there have been instances where states have refused to just give the land or sell the land, and there have been eminent domain proceedings in which they were forced to do so by a court. There have been David. But most cases pipelines have worked out things voluntarily with the states and we haven't had to go through an eminent domain proceeding. We in the states have noticed, have always believed that pipelines have a right to develop. They don't land and this decision is even broader than this. This. Their third circuit decision says that so long as an individual these a property interests in easing it a gift to the state. Conservation easement. The state could then say that the 11th amendment applies. There is well that the pipeline cannot develop over that land individual land, So it is very broad scope, and it would change how energy infrastructures developed today not just gas pipelines, but any type of infrastructure, which requires federal review. Relies on eminent domain authority such as railroads, bridges and roads. And there are practical consequences to this decision is left standing will give us something practical consequences. I mean, particularly as we talk about infrastructure of various sorts. Going beyond natural gas pipelines. So here's some the real life consequences. Higher energy prices. Ad for states that don't have energy access their prices and electricity prices because gas powers electricity is well or the highest in the nation, in fact, several years ago Massachusetts could not get enough natural gas during the winter, and they had import in liquefied natural gas from Russia rather than have access to domestically price. Natural gas in the states of Pennsylvania. Is neighbor Evil. Also, uh, Require energy to rely on less environmental friendly sources elect for generation may have to rely on sources that are not as beneficial is natural gas. So there are a lot of consequences, and it will keep out of work than many union workers already sand ready to build interstate gas pipelines. This wouldn't be the first time that it's a Supreme Court case iconic decision had to do with underlying policy differences, not just what the Constitution provides what the founding fathers intended. What is really going on here? Why is New Jersey fighting this so hard? How wise it made it This far. Is this a climate issue? Is that what this is? Well, it could be. I'm not speaking. Or we can't surmise what New Jersey says. But it's clear that New Jersey doesn't want to go to 100% renewables. But this decision It doesn't matter why state doesn't want another state gas pipeline or any injured energy infrastructure. It allows the state to just say no. And it doesn't matter The reason why The current administration. As I understand it has come in and support of your position, saying this group what should take the case and presumably reverse the third circuit. Do you anticipate that might be different if the under abide administration You know what I think This issue crosses political lines, regardless of whether you're Democrat or Republican. This is about energy access. This is about the ability to keep your homes and businesses open, warm and affordable is about domestic jobs. I think that the Supreme Court should be interested in hearing this case, and we're very happy that the government weighed in. In the pipeline. Staver and said yes. Over 70 years. Yes, This is how it's been. Pipelines have a right to develop on stayed on land, thanks to interstate natural gas. America General Counsel Joan Dress skin coming up.

What they got was a grand jury and the state attorney general deciding to charge just one of those officers not for Taylor's death, but because the bullets that this officer fired into her apartment, entered the apartment next door and endangered the lives of Taylor's neighbors.

Q Five of the six largest wildfires in California's recorded history ignited in the last six weeks. In that same time, an epic heat wave suffocated the state, making it the hottest August on record. And in the last decade, California wilted in a years long drought, maybe know where are the climate effects predicted in a warmer world more visible than in California. The state has already committed to get 100% of its electricity from solar and wind and other zero carbon energy sources by the year 2045. And yesterday, Governor Gavin Newsom announced another plank of his emissions reduction strategy by 2035. In the next 15 years we will eliminate in the state of California the sales of internal combustion engines. Governor Newsome, a Democrat, is here with me to talk about this. Welcome back to all things considered. It's great to be with you. Thanks for having me. And governor to clarify first, this order would affect only new vehicle sales. So no more sales of gas powered or diesel powered cars or trucks after 2035 but would not prevent Californians from owning cars with internal combustion engines past 2030 35 or selling them on the used vehicle market. Is that right? Yeah, that's exactly right. And so that's mean and it's important point because people obviously a right to say, Well, you're taking something away when in fact We're not taking anything away. We're just establishing a frame of consideration that is self evident. Anyone that's watching the trend lines that this is where the automobile manufacturers air going. This is where the proverbial puck is. And we want to skate towards it. And we want accelerate a trend You're seeing all around the rest of the world, At least now. 15 countries have put out Similar signals of their intention to do something along the lines of what California is doing. To make this happen. California would have to add huge numbers of electric charging stations. You need to upgrade your electrical grid, which is already aging, already forced to do rolling blackouts during heat waves. How realistic is this In terms of California's infrastructure? We could do it. I mean, the reality is we're already doing it. 34% of our electricity comes from renewable places We have over 50% of all the electricity produced Procured in California from non carbon sources. We have a plan. We have a strategy. We went through an historic heatwave that was really a heat dome on the entire West Coast, the United States. We are reliant on imports from other Western states, and that's what impacted us for those two days where we had rolling blackouts, but we believe Our strategy's movie. Ford will mitigate that, and that primarily will be advanced to battery storage technology, which is really taking shape which for us is going to be the game changer and we think for this nation as it relates to.

that's gonna happen at me I would get a tax and there's so many businesses that are on the fringe of going out of business or already have that could be very very difficult that's the whites both the mayor and I think David and David James said as much in his cut that it's going to have to literally be the eleventh and a half hour and there's everything else has been done before they put a tax hike on the table and I I you know I give them credit for that because you know you know I unless you're just completely off your rocker you know nobody sits there and looks at the tax bill goes well Gee I like paying this you know so I think I don't think that that's a a political play either I think that was a bipartisan you know you can't tax somebody who doesn't have the money to pay a tax right you know that's a little issue of this coronavirus what I wanna bring up that other one that's a Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on a Terry show the other day indicating he would approve of the state's piling at bankruptcies it's interesting from the standpoint because there's now been some push back the only problem you heard death metal councilman jet president David James yesterday but also others the met mayor Fischer and others and of course there was Andrew Cuomo who I came out and said this about Kentucky because ms call these blues basically indicate these were blue state ballots many democratic state Beltre's Coleman who is a Democrat state the state of Kentucky takes out a hundred and forty eight billion more than they put it okay so he's a federal legislator he's distributing the federal pot of money New York what's in more money to the federal pot then it takes out his state takes out more than it puts it so there you go that's what Cuomo saying and of course he is a blue state we are red states generally with the senator McConnell and of the legislature except for the governor I I you know I wonder you know it's been pretty obvious that any regrets going to have a hard time in the race for governor but when you start taken enough talk to us some pensioners at here thank you tacky there are several but there's a five different pensions including at the teachers pension there's a a four hundred ninety seven thousand three hundred sixty one a Kentucky ends that are receiving some type of state pension in in the in the big whether it's a the could take your time system or the teachers or or or others I mean that's a significant of voting bloc when you when you when you start talking that way and so all of a sudden what we see a rise or change by that big of a voting block to make sure because they're concerned about their pensions I mean they really are after what the what the statement was yesterday so we'll have to see if that's going to have an impact on the this upcoming election you have any thoughts on it will it really I mean that is just I was kind of surprised by the way came out at least from center McConnell yeah I mean it's I think a lot of people are going to they're gonna you throwing ideas at the wall and I think to some extent maybe that's what the senator was doing I don't know I don't know him well enough to know

Trees Are Key To Fighting Urban Heat, But Cities Keep Losing Them
"Yesterday that low income areas of major u._s. Cities are often hotter order than wealthy neighborhoods. It's the finding of an investigation from n._p._r. And the howard center for investigative journalism at the university of maryland today we look at one of the best ways to beat the urban heat trees american cities are losing nearly twenty nine million trees every year. Many are struggling to reverse that trend that includes louisville kentucky which compared to its surroundings has been getting hotter faster than any other u._s. City n._p._r.'s mega anderson reports. Any hagler is walking down her block in park divall a lower income neighbourhood on louisville's west side. It's lined with single family homes and well kept tidy yards. First of all is my neighborhood and i love love it even without the things that i would want to have here things like trees. She points to a small scraggly one in the grassy patch running down her street. That's the the median right there. They've got a tree in there but it's one tree. There's another small tree behind it and there are parts of this neighborhood with more trees but overall data shows the canopy here is about half the city average. Hitler says she thinks trees were just not a priority park. Vol used to be the site of a massive asif public housing complex that was demolished and construction started here in the late ninety s c after twenty years. If we had thought differently about the design zayn we might have put more trees here across louisville wealthier neighborhoods have as much as twice the tree coverage as low income areas many of which are communities of have color jad daily is president and c._e._o. Of the nonprofit american forests he says that pattern is often the case nationwide. If we show you a map the tree canopy in virtually any sitting america were also showing you a map of income and in many cases were showing you a map of race ethnicity in ways that transcendent calm trees aren't just pleasant their key to fighting heat view live in an area and cities that seeing more extreme heat days but you don't have tree covered a cool down your neighborhood. The can literally be a a life or death issue according to an analysis by n._p._r. In the howard center low income areas of cities across the country tend to be hotter than their a wealthier counterparts. Those areas are hotter in part because they often have fewer trees and that heat can take a toll on health. Here's daily the folks who are least likely to have air conditioning to whether heatwaves the folks who are most likely to have preexisting health conditions that put them at greater risk from those heat waves aren't getting the benefits of trees between two thousand nine and two thousand fourteen forty four states lost tree cover in urban areas according to the u._s. forest service and when it comes to trees many low income areas are already starting at a deficit cad stanfield executive director of louisville grows a nonprofit that plants trees says it doesn't have to be that way. He took me to saint james court in old louisville. It's a boulevard famous for its stately victorian homes and an annual art art fair but we were there to see the huge lush canopy towering over us. If you were to look at an aerial view of this wouldn't look too dissimilar from forest the trees reese shade us almost completely stanfield says it's a reminder of what's possible if trees are part of the plan from the beginning for anybody that plants trees in a city. This is the the goal this is the dream. This is what you hope to create in the cities but even if trees are in the plan maintaining them takes money a lot of money me this year tree maintenance on this street which is about a quarter mile long will cost around twenty thousand dollars according to the neighborhood association the city has planted planted and donated roughly five thousand trees annually since two thousand thirteen but it loses about fifty four thousand every year according to its own assessment too invasive species a._b._c.'s natural disasters and urban development and louisville is facing a thirty five million dollar budget deficit. They've cut funding to emergency police and fire fire services. Mayor greg fischer says he'd like to plant more trees. We've got it wrestle with this great. American challenge people want everything but they don't want to pay for anything. When it comes to planting tens of thousands more he says city government's not going to be able to do all that by itself. He's counting on nonprofits and other institutions to fill in the gaps at the university of louisville's environment institute researchers are trying to make the case that trees are a must have in city budgets jets. They're starting to study called the greenheart project and will plant full grown trees as tall as thirty feet in three square mile area in louisville. The five five year study will measure how the health of hundreds of participants changes and compare them to a nearby control group in short. They're testing trees the same way you test the new drug. The idea was to run. This project is a clinical trial but instead of giving pills we plant trees irony. Bhatnagar is director of the institute food and he says beyond cooling city down studies have linked trees too much more better air quality better stormwater management lower energy costs lower levels levels of stress even a longer life but naga says you can't always isolate trees as the reason those things happen. Everything's remaining the same the trees in it what he says cities have divorced themselves from nature and now he wants to show what happens when you put nature back in meg anderson n._p._r. News.
