Steve Deace: The Social Compact Is Destroyed
"Know what before you came on I was addressing the tragedy going on in Palestinian Ohio which no one seems to care about because it's middle class working American citizens and there's no social justice cause involved And it's kind of strange like the lying about it I mean you're very familiar with leftist propaganda you've been on the radio longer than me But this is just blatant lies like Trump repealed a breaking rule and Trump did it And then we find out that this train wasn't even categorized as one of those trains that would have had these breaks anyway It's like this is like Soviet style stuff I mean we're in a new era of propaganda now We are but at least Greta Thunberg made her way to one of the worst I'm sorry never mind But your point stands Dan I mean the social compact is broken And that is really the essence of what a constitution enumerates and quantify The constitution is the codification of your own social compact meaning we won't do these things to each other Government won't do these things to us We won't ask government to do these things for us That's what a constitution is the enumeration of is that social compact And it's broken in the country now And so when you no longer want to live with people you treat them like this There's that level of disdain that level of dishonesty And frankly the lie is the point You take joy in reminding them of how much you disdain them By lying all the more and gaslighting them all the more to their faces And that's why you hear people talk about things like national divorce because they can see the writing on the wall that a large part of this country doesn't want to live with the rest of us anymore Unless we want to live their way

"Greta Thunberg, saving the climate means changing how we live. By Greta Thunberg. Thunberg is a Swedish climate activist cofounder of the Fridays for future movement and the author of the climate book in December 2019, she was announced as time's person of the year. The American way of life is not up for negotiation, period. These are the words of U.S. president George H. W. Bush ahead of the 1992 United Nations earth summit in Rio de Janeiro. In retrospect, it turns out he was speaking on behalf of the entire global north, and this remains our position to this very day. The solution to this crisis is not exactly rocket science. What we have to do is to halt the emission of greenhouse gases, which in theory is a pretty easy thing to do, or at least it was before we let the problem spiral out of control. It is solving the climate crisis while maximizing economic growth that is the hard part. So hard as to be near impossible. A stable climate and a well functioning biosphere are basic conditions for life on earth as we know it. That requires an atmosphere that does not contain too many greenhouse gases. The carbon dioxide safety level for such climate stability is often considered to be around 350 parts per million, a level we passed in around 1987. In February 2022, we surpassed 421 PPM at current emission levels, our remaining carbon budgets for a decent chance of staying below 1.5°C and minimizing the risk of setting off irreversible chain reactions beyond human control will be gone before the end of this decade. There are no effective policies in place, and there is no silver bullet or magic technological solution in sight. Since the president spoke those words defending how Americans live, our annual global CO2 emissions have gone up by more than 60%, turning what was then a big challenge into an existential emergency. We have developed impressive creative accounting, loopholes, outsourcing, and greenwashing PR narratives that make it seem as if real action is being taken when in fact it is not. Continued economic growth on the other hand has been hugely successful, at least for a small number of people who boast their carbon footprint the size of entire villages. Nevertheless, economic growth since the 1992 earth summit has at least brought us one major advantage. It has proved beyond all reasonable doubt that our ambition was never about saving the climate, it was all about saving our way of life, and it still is. Until recently, you could argue that it was possible to save the climate without having to change our behavior, but that is no longer possible. The scientific evidence is crystal clear, our leaders have left a too late for us to avoid major lifestyle and systemic changes. There simply are not enough resources left. If we are to have a chance of minimizing further irreparable damage, we now have to choose. Either we safeguard living conditions for all future generations or we let a few very fortunate people maintain their constant destructive search to maximize immediate profits. If we choose the first option and decide to go on as a civilization, then we must start to prioritize. In the years, decades and centuries to come, we will no doubt need many transformations that will have to stretch across our whole societies. And since our resources are limited, we must start getting our priorities straight. Beyond the very basics, our top priority must be to distribute our remaining carbon budgets in a fair and holistic way across the world, as well as to repay our enormous historical debts. That means those who are most responsible for this crisis must immediately and drastically reduce their emissions. We understand that the world is very complicated, and there are countless important variables. That is exactly why we have to start as soon as possible. This will require a whole new way of thinking for our societies at least in the affluent parts of the world. People keep asking us climate activists, what we should do to save the climate. But maybe the question itself is wrong. Maybe, instead, we should start asking what we should stop doing. Sometimes you hear people say that we already have all the solutions to the climate crisis. And all we need to do is to implement them. But this is only true if we consider not doing something to be a valid solution. If we choose to accept that idea, then we will still be able to get out of this mess. There is, in reality, absolutely no reason to believe that the necessary changes will make us less happy or less satisfied. If we manage to do this right, then our lives will be given more meaning than selfish shallow over consumption can ever give us. Instead, we can make time and space for community solidarity and love. The true tenets of a good.

Environmental activist Greta Thunberg, writing on Twitter, quote, yesterday I was part of a group that peacefully protested the expansion of a coal mine in Germany. We were kettled by police and then detained, but were let go later that evening. Climate protection is not a crime. Thunberg was detained along with other activists. She was carried away by three police officers before being released in the evening. In as delicate ABC News, at the foreign desk. Encouraging new findings on the environmental impact of using K cups in your keurig. Northwest news radios Kim shepherd talked with ABC's Derek Dennis about the new research. Despite their popularity K cups have been categorized as an environmental no no, even the creator John sylvan once said he never intended for them to be used in homes and he doesn't even understand the attraction. Absolutely mystified by them. I don't have one. I just find them rather expensive. But maybe we're all wrong. ABC's Derek Dennis is joining us with a new study that found K cups might not be as bad as we thought, Derek. Yeah, it's interesting, you know, the conventional thought has been anything plastic is bad for the environment. And I think that's still holds true, but researchers at the university of Quebec did a study looking at the environmental impact of the ways in which we get our coffee, specifically K cups, those pods of coffee that we use in our keurigs. Apparently they're not as bad when used only once a day. Especially when you compare it to the traditional coffee pot, the grounds and the filter we've all come to come to know and use. That has about one and a half times more emissions use than just to one use pod. So there is the issue, which is worse. And apparently, according to the research here, the traditional way of using the coffee pot has much more of an environmental impact than the K cups that are used. So that looks at energy consumption. Did they look at trash creation as well? Well, they did. And they found that, you know, the coffee grounds. But if you're going to use them for composting great, but a lot of people don't, they just throw them in the trash. And so when that mixes with whatever else is in the trash, it's much harder for it to break down. And so that's the impact on the environment. Also, just to what it takes to get the coffee grounds into the packaging and all that is a drain environmentally. The waste of water, the electricity use, all of that goes into it, whereas the cake hops, they're just a one time use, but the study said if you use more than one K cup a day, then you're negating the impact and you're really doing more harm than good. Okay, so better to have that full cup brewing if you're going to have more than one cup of coffee. Right, exactly. It really brings up this interesting dilemma though that I've often found myself in when it comes to this sort of hierarchy of environmental efforts. Do I use a bunch of water and energy to rinse out that peanut butter jar when I don't even really know whether it's going to be recycled? Did these researchers look at that issue? They did and they found that in terms of using the same cup and washing it out and then reusing it again, depending on how you do it if you're doing it by hand, you might be using more water than in a traditional dishwasher where you're washing other dishes or right along with it. So you got to think about that as well. The bottom line is the study is forcing people to kind of look at what we're doing in terms of getting our coffee every day. Americans are hooked on coffee, a lot of other countries are hooked on coffee as well. But how we're using it, how we're getting and how we're consuming it, and depending on the way, is having an impact on the environment negatively or negligibly, it depends.

"For consumers. Top toys and technology could still be hard to come by because of supply chain snags. A group of children and young adults, including Greta Thunberg, have filed a class action lawsuit against the Swedish state for failing to take adequate measures to stop climate change. The lawsuit is part of an international wave of climate related legal action. In the NFL, the Patriots and the Giants lost, bills won at the World Cup and cutter four games today, Wales and Iran remained scoreless. England and the U.S. play later today. Global news, 24 hours a day on air and on Bloomberg quicktake, powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts more than a 120 countries on Michael Barr. This is Bloomberg John. Michael, thank you coming up on 6 20 on Wall Street where live from the Bloomberg interactive broker studios. This is Bloomberg daybreak. Well, let's take the pulse of the American consumer again this morning as Black Friday shopping kicks off, we're joined by punam goyle. Senior retail analyst with Bloomberg intelligence in years past drive in. It was a kind of crowded as malls and other stores opened early. Is that the case this year? There's only a few stores open right now as we speak. Naming one Walmart. But the malls are about to open soon. So we'll be there. We do have an analyst out at Walmart and early channel checks suggest there that if you were to walk into the store right now, you can get a PS5 or an Xbox console. So I don't know if it's worked. People going out to stores because I can purchase one online. Okay, door buster deals. Is that a thing of the past or are we seeing that again surface this year? It's mostly upping of the past. There are a few items that you need to go into the store for, but largely you can find the same deals online. And not only online today, you could have found them online yesterday. So a lot of retailers are stretching the deal to be available from Thursday. And even Wednesday when we were at stores, some of the stores, this is our Black Friday deal and this is what it will be on Friday if you come back. It's interesting the strategy, but they're really spreading it out over multiple days to capture the wallet share. And an environment where the consumer is clearly looking for deals. You know, leading up to this as you told us, the some of the retailers with their earnings report noted weaker performance that was late October, is that trend going to continue? I think top line will be okay with expectations. It's the margin that we're concerned about. And that's really predicated on inventory levels, which were high entering into the third quarter and also into the fourth quarter. So it will really depend on how much inventory can be turned over the next two months. And Halloween retailers can exit the quarter. If the 5 day weekend falls below expectations, then there will be more discounts come December. However, if a track to be in line, we think that the retailers could exit the quarter clean, should they promote to clear any excess inventory. Now, when we're talking about inventory, what types of inventory is it across the board? It's across the board, I mean the electronics apparel, it's really shoes. I mean, there is more inventory in the marketplace, which is why we're seeing discounting. We heard from the off price retailers just last week when they reported inventory. And that they were quite happy about the buying availability that they had noting that they're getting access to brands that more easily than they had in the past. So that means that there's inventory out there. We're margins going to be in those categories to just mentioned of the inventory, where will margins be heard the most? Like, the likely be hurt the most across electronics where there is a deflationary environment. And the product is somewhat commoditized, right? So there will be pricing boards to grab that wallet share. So we think there's more than pressure there. A parallel because it's seasonal. So you could see if it didn't sell through like winter jackets and stuff if they're not largely sold through commit December, they're going to start getting marked down pretty aggressively to be cleared by January. Do consumers have money this year, or do they head to the credit the credit card in their wallet? It depends on which consumer you're talking about, the luxury consumer does have the propensity to spend that they are spending when it comes down to the value consumer. We've seen them hidden to their savings account of savings rate has dropped to below 4%. That's less than close to half, where it was during the peak of the pandemic. So clearly dipping into those savings. And yeah, they are using credit more because they need to stretch that dollar, especially right now during the holidays when they're buying for themselves and for others. Now, among the retailers that you cover, who's best positioned in this environment. I think, you know, Amazon still remains best positioned because it does offer almost everything. For me, Amazon is my search identify looking for anything. I'll go to Amazon and see if they have it. And if I'm price conscious, I may compare it to Walmart and target, but it's really around the 5 day period, the retailers that are offer value and deals are the ones that thrive because that's what the consumer is seeking right now. No, if I'm trying to avoid the shipping costs, I'm more prone to shop in person though, right? Well, no, I mean shipping is largely free right about now Amazon, if you have to find you're not paying for shipping. A lot of other retailers drop their free shipping minimum so that you can

The Book Review
"greta thunberg" Discussed on The Book Review
"It's also, it's also sort of the framework for the plot of the novel. It's interesting when you talk about child friendly as defining what ends up in a children's Bible because the stories, of course, are still fairly terrifying. I remember getting up to keen and able in my own children's Bible and then being like, all right, I think I'm done here with this here. Book of tales. There's a lot of brutality. But there's not the sort of prophetic apocalyptic gore of the book of revelation. But yeah, of course, even the Noah's ark story is extraordinary and apocalyptic in its own way. Of course, it's sort of a happy ending. If you want to read it that way, where animals get saved. And it's a good people get to live on after the flood. Talk a little bit about the children of the title because, as you said, they're not quite children. I mean, they're mostly teenagers, and they seem very sophisticated. Right, so I've never too interested in developmental verisimilitude with characters. They are sort of hybrid child's adults. As teenagers really are, but the kids in this book, all they do use a lot of swears. Harsh in their language and judgmental, but at the same time they're naturally articulate to a certain degree. And I think because in a sense I wanted to respect their voices, I wanted to make them authoritative and sort of straight guys in the book against the chaotic collective of the parents who are who are objectified generally for, I hope humorous effect, but they're sort of unable to manage their families and their lives and the teenagers and a couple of young children who make up the sort of band of roving humans at the center of the story. They are mature in certain ways, essentially this is a book envisioned for adults to read and I don't, and so I don't feel like I need to talk down to either children and teenagers or to those who are reading the book by infantilizing these because we all know how resilient teenagers can be and how selectively brilliant they can be while also having these blind spots. In the book though, they're sort of forced into a situation where they are more responsible and kind of wise than they adults around them. And I'm curious if you see the book as a kind of indictment of this generation of parents. And I guess I have to include myself in that. Yeah, and I include myself, yeah. So there's a generational schism over climate and extinction that's getting more and more visible to the mainstream. And that's partly because of the gestures of activists like Greta Thunberg, who's just a year older than my own daughter. And young people whose time horizon stretches decades beyond the personal lifetime horizons of those of us who are already. Out of our 20s and 30s. Are the ones who will be so profoundly affected by our generations in action on making sure they have a livable future. And this generation is starting to notice and get angry. And I think the rage is long overdue. And I think it's the only rational response to the threats we face. So this novel is about that kind of righteous anger of the young anger over the looming. Emergencies of extinction and runaway climate change. Because I didn't feel it had been written too much about and literary fiction yet. Anger is what we need. We don't need anxiety management. We don't need therapy. Because the future is going to be a fight. You can't fight without anger. So you've brought up a climate change. This is obviously a book very much about climate change. And in our review, the critic refers to your OG status among writers on climate change. How do you feel about being associated with the term environmental writer? Is that the way you think of yourself? Because you've studied environmental science and have worked in conservation. And I never have thought of myself primarily as environmental in my interests and fiction. It's just that now the environment and the natural world. They're very clearly our life supports. And so I've just always, I've actually always disliked the word environment and environmental. I don't think it's it sounds so dry and stodgy and wonky. But really, what we're talking about is the whole of the world that we co evolved with and our physical life support. And so yeah, I do write, I think increasingly over I'll say the past decade or so I have written more directly about these matters because I think their existential and I can't write around them anymore. For a time, I didn't want to directly address these matters of existence because it's difficult to write about them in a way that's not polemic in a way that, frankly, bearable to read. And so for a long time, I sort of held myself apart and only addressed these climate and extinction crises sort of laterally in the writing. But it was sort of an elephant in the room for me. I couldn't not write about it at a certain point anymore. So yeah, I have become preoccupied. With the failure of our culture to change our way of life to protect our future and the future of the other critters that we depend on. While that is a very serious subject, it certainly isn't dry in this book. There's a lot of humor in it. There's your distinctive style and sensibility, which runs throughout your work. And yet, I have to say this, it does seem like each book that you write is a little bit of departure from the previous book, even though that your style runs throughout. I wonder, do you feel like you're constantly challenging yourself and experimenting and forcing yourself to do something new? Because sweet lamb of heaven, for example, was a kind of thriller. This is very much not that. You put it very kindly. I think I just don't like to write the same book twice because I have a short attention span. So I'm unable to sort of replicate previous books. I'm glad that my style seems consistent in some way. I specifically with this book because in the past, I've tended to write books that are more satirical or lampoon like on the one hand and more oriented toward humor and then on the other hand, books that are less so like sweet than of heaven that really are more about ideas and abstraction and are perhaps more earnest. And so with this book, I wanted to try, I explicitly in my mind any way it wanted to try to write a book that was based on ideas and took as its subject. Things about which I'm passionate, but also not have it be humorless. So I really, my project here was to try to make a serious book that also contained humor and of course we get humor generally by objectifying. And so the parents became my victims. In that way. So in the book, of course, there is this flood this disaster impending end times. And here we are. Your book is coming out in the middle of a pandemic. Obviously, that's not something you could have predicted. I'm assuming. Unless you somehow did, how does it feel to have this particular story out in the world at this moment? Well, you know, it is a kind of direct parallel because in the book there are these epic storms and floods in the pandemic. There's disease, but in real life,

Then, around 1900, in Pennsylvania, by the way, an oil city, Pennsylvania, I think it was a I think Arthur Drake perhaps is a Drake sir Drake, discovers oil, right? Begins to use that for heating lamps and power, right? Suddenly, the combustion of the combustion engine. The steam engine, which was at the time, all they could do is shovel and coal, right? Now was a huge way more efficient way to do that. And it changed, well, number one, steam changed the world. I mean, steam and the industrial revolution of the 1850s, but the problem is, see, we don't teach this in school. This is a problem. Nobody's learned this stuff. So these kids grow up, it's like America's bad and we need solar. Add to that, add to that, the number of people that went from being extremely poor. That's right. To middle to upper middle class and some of them very well. That's right. But all kinds of jobs. People that were living in their own filth now were able to buy build homes and have a place that they called their home and be able to shower. We're going backwards. All of that. We're going back to windmills, right? Are we going to go back to water wheels? I mean, should we go back to living in caves? I mean, shall we heat our homes with an open fire? What are we talking about? What they do at these kids is they slowly try to indoctrinate them a lot like they boiling a frog. They're in the water, they slowly turn it up. Slowly turn it up. The world's dirty, shame on you. Shame on you. And before you know it, you go wait a minute, why don't I have any power in the house? Because it's all about shaving these kids. How easy is it to shame kids? What they do to kids is child mental child abuse. It really is. They shame these kids that tell these kids racism is your fault. Climate change. Think about Greta. Greta Thunberg will spend her whole life in miserable fear, hating other people because she believes how dare you, yeah.

Dr. Steve Turley on the Return of 'Traditionalism'
"For you for doctor Steve. What is the best term that covers from Orban to Trump to Brexit to Farage to maga? What for you is the most discreet in the philosophical sense, nomenclature for what we are witnessing? Yeah, so when all is said and done, I would go with the idea of conservative as traditionalism. We're going back. This is a return. That's the key. So modernity is inherently liberal. Modernity is inherently all about throwing away our traditions and customs is now out of date and superstitious and so forth. What we're seeing now is a return. I mean, even China is talking more about Confucianism than it is marks. This is hot now. Everybody wants to go back to their civilizational religions at this point. So, but it's what makes it complicated. What makes it complicated is that it globalism territorials. How's that for a no, magic? Nice. If globalism territorial laws politics, takes it away from the local. The way this is the Greta Thunberg, the great reset where you're actually denying the way human beings live, which is in community, with sovereignty with territory. It's the antithesis of what about 6000 years of written history. Exactly right. Exactly. And it's replacing civilization with a

Who really has influence in today's world. This phrase of influenza, who are the people with the narrative power, well, for a while, it was a diminutive Scandinavian young girl who had a certain way with words. Let's remind ourselves, play cuts. This is all we hear from our so called leaders. Words, words that sound great, but so far has led to no action build back better blah blah blah green economy, blah, blah, blah, net zero by 2050. Blah, blah, blah. Blah, blah, blah. Is she making fun of the blah blah blah? Is she making fun of the net zero in the great reset? Or she still one of these dangerous propagandists. Let's talk to a man who pushes back every single day at the climate depot dot com. He's a man who's taught me so much about the fraud that is modern environmentalism. Mark murano author of the great reset. Welcome back to America first. Thank you, Sebastian. Happy to be here. All right, we have so much to discuss, especially with regards to a certain article from the United Nations. You sent me last week that very rapidly soon after you discovered it was memory hold like something out of George Orwell's 1984. But let me start at the beginning. What's happened to little Greta Thunberg, she was such the darling of the western elites, even when she, what was that thing she did with a yacht she crossed the Atlantic and then flew back or her team flew back on carbon emitting jets. She kind of disappeared or she still out there wagging her finger at us. Well, she's still around. And yeah, this is a reminder. She said she was in, I guess, America. And she said, I have to get to over to Europe. How am I going to do this? And someone said, how do you know there's an invention about the Wright brothers came up with an airplane? You might try that. But of course, you said she couldn't. So she came up with a fossil fuel made yacht with a whole crew that ended up flying back and forth to man the lot. Yeah, so it was a massive virtue signal of nonsense, but there she was on the yacht trying to avoid the airplane to send her statement to the world that she wasn't going to embrace a modern airplane because it was too evil to the planet. The clips you showed were actually from the summit I attended last fall in Scotland, it was at the United Nations climate summit. And she actually, we support, I supported gretta's comments. She was calling the United Nations process blah blah blah. In other words, what we did face a climate catastrophe and we had to rely on the UN to save us. We'd all be doomed 'cause all they wouldn't do is impose socialism and authoritarian and as a modest. Of course, she actually hurt critique of the UN and the EU and the World Economic Forum. They don't go far enough. So she's out there, but we do support her message that these are illegitimate and fraudulent institutions who don't appear to be what they say they are. And that's what she was criticizing. So she actually got quite disillusioned at that summit and just basically thought it was a lot of hot air talk from politicians. And with that, we welcomed her because she finally realizes that's what the UN is all about. Yeah, well, yes,.

Are We a Sovereign Nation? Or Are We an Equal in a Globalist Project?
"Are we a sovereign nation that can chart our own destiny or are we a mere equal in some sort of globalist project? Who controls our borders our language our future, our carbon emissions? Is it the United States Congress or is it some sort of internationalist globalist project? Now the founding fathers were very clear that the limitations on American power stop at the borders of our own country. Being involved in internationalist organizations, usually does not go well. The League of Nations fell apart, the United Nations has been a total and complete disaster, since it was formed post World War II. And the reason is that tyrannical dictators take advantage of the idea that there's an internationalist order. In fact, the same sort of internationalist type globalist style governments that were formed after World War I were just ignored by dictators in Italy and Germany and all across Europe and across the country across the world. So who controls our borders are language and our future? Is it Greta Thunberg and John Kerry or is it the voters of our

"Brought to you by audible. An open letter to the global media by Greta Thunberg and Vanessa nakate. Nakate is a Ugandan climate justice activist and founder of the rise up movement, Thunberg is as Swedish climate activist and cofounder of the Fridays for future movement. Dear media editors around the world. Melting glaciers, wildfires, droughts, deadly heat waves, floods, hurricanes, loss of biodiversity. These are all symptoms of a destabilizing planet which are happening around us all the time. Those are the kind of things you report about, sometimes the climate crisis, however, is much more than just this. If you want to truly cover the climate crisis, you must also report on the fundamental issues of time, holistic thinking and justice. So what does that mean? Let's look at these issues one by one. First, the notion of time if you are stories do not include the notion of a ticking clock, then the climate crisis is just a political topic among other topics, something we can just buy build or invest our way out of. Leave out the aspect of time and we can continue pretty much like today and quote unquote solve the problems later on. 2030, 2050 or 2060, the best available science shows that with our current rate of emissions, our remaining carbon budget for staying below 1.5°C will run out before the end of this decade. Second, holistic thinking, when considering our remaining carbon budget, we need to count all the numbers and include all of our emissions. Currently, you are letting high income nations and big polluters off the hook, allowing them to hide behind the incomplete statistics, loopholes and rhetoric they fought so hard to create during the last 30 years. Third and most important of all, justice. The climate crisis isn't just about extreme weather. It's about people, real people, and the very people who have done the least to create the climate crisis are suffering the most, and while the global south is on the front lines of the climate crisis, it's almost never on the front pages of the world's newspapers, as western media focuses on wildfires in California or Australia or flooding in Europe, climate related catastrophes are ravaging communities across the global south, but receive very little coverage. To include the element of justice, you can not ignore the global north's moral responsibility to move much faster in reducing their emissions. By the end of this year, the world will have collectively burned through 89% of the carbon budget that gives us a 66% chance of staying below 1.5°C. That's why historic emissions not only count, but are in fact at the very heart of the debate over climate justice, and yet historical emissions are still being almost completely ignored by the media and people in power. To stay below the target set in the Paris agreement and thereby minimize the risks of setting off irreversible chain reactions beyond human control, we need immediate drastic annual emission reductions unlike anything the world has ever seen. And as we don't have the technological solutions that alone will do anything close to that in the foreseeable future, it means we have to make fundamental changes in our society. This is the uncomfortable result of our leaders failure to address this crisis. Your responsibility to help correct this failure can not be overstated. We are social animals, and if our leaders and our media don't act as if we were in a crisis then, of course, we won't understand that we are. One of the essential elements of a functioning democracy is a free press that objectively informs the citizens of the great challenges our society faces, and the media must hold the people in power accountable for their actions or inactions. You are among our last hopes. No one else has the possibility and the opportunity to reach as many people in the extremely short time frame we have. We can not do this without you, that climate crisis is only going to become more urgent. We can still avoid the worst consequences. We can still turn this around, but not if we continue like today. You have the resources and possibilities to change the story overnight. Whether or not you choose to rise to that challenge is up to you. Either way,.

"Clearly more important than ever, but it's a notoriously tricky message to get across. As recent climate protests in the UK and elsewhere have shown, it's easy to alienate and polarize the public, which risks fatigue setting in. People shut down if the picture gets too dystopian. As amazing as her campaigning has been, there's only so much Greta Thunberg can achieve and, as we'll hear later in the program, she's had perhaps less impact on her fellow Swedes than you might imagine. We've teamed up with the Nordic council of ministers for 5 more special editions of the foreign desk explainer part of an occasional ongoing series delving deeper into topics of global importance from the region. This series is focusing on sustainability issues in the run up to and during cop 26 in Glasgow. We'll be looking at things like how the Nordic countries are trying to eat more sustainably, prepare for the consequences of climate change, and the subject of this episode communicating the reality of climate change, tackling this information and apathy and trying to persuade people to live more sustainable lives. How do you get involved in the debate? What effect has Greta Thunberg had on her fellow Swedes attitudes, surprisingly little as it turns out. And how has a Danish green energy giant managed to persuade dames to.

The lack of water is really not a fun thing. River's drying up. Yeah and my name is on the line. It's not really your name. On the line. Larry bird but larry's right about climate change last summer. Three percent of california was facing extreme or exceptional drought. This summer. it's up to eighty eight percent so it makes sense that desperate farmers are turning to larry.

It has no scientific basis. A hydro geologist can bring a lot of tools to the situation. Such as a proton magnetic resonance when they essentially put a electrical current into an aquifer and the gauge. That's currents reaction to the water molecule electric current. That's what the dow's you're doing well. Hydro geologist bring practical methodical method to locating and extracting groundwater compared to a dow zor Which uses a stick. They would refer to it as a as a rod. Okay but farmer. John says these so called. Scientists are the real scammers drill wells. Come out and look for it. Spend money and in final water.

They get to know the land they get to know what works They're probably applying certain level scientific method to what they're either knowingly or unknowingly doing so these are unknowing scientists possibly potentially is this science science.

"Musicals now so i mean if she had to change career but it wasn't that big and the planet is the most important thing for you. Yeah i mean for all of us. I think it should be white. Why do you think young people are so focused on climate change now visit definite disconnect between older generations and the younger generations win talking about the climate. Why do you think that is. I mean i think it is because we in a way feel like this more direct threat of this feel like i'm i won't be alive them anyway. So screw it but we but we we actually know that these consequences will face us during our lifetime and it is already happening now and it will get worse and so i think that is why so many young people especially care about this and and course the awareness is not as it needs to be. It's not as much as a needs to be. People are still very unaware is my experience and so we need to continue but you can see that yo among young people. The concern is bigger. What do you think people need to learn about. Climate change. many people have heard of the climate warming up. Some people have a small understanding of what it means. But what do you think is lacking in the understanding of this issue. I think pretty much everything. Because i mean we know that something is wrong that the planet is warming because of increased greenhouse gas emissions and the that might lead to. That's the ice caps will melts and the global temperature will rise and they will be more extreme weather events and so on but the they don't understand how severe this crisis action is and it is because they have not been informed. I mean we are right now. In the beginning of the six max mass extinction and people don't know these things up to two hundred species go extinct every single day and people don't even know that we have for a six to seven percent chance of limiting the global temperature rise to one point five degrees. We had on january first two thousand eighteen. Four hundred twenty gigi tons of carbon dioxide left him it to stay within that target. And now we're already down to less than three hundred and sixty if we continue at the same emission level as now we have less than eight and a half years until that budgets is gone according to the from the star fifteen report and that is for six to seven percent chance and while sixty seven percent chance and we're not even hitting those targets. What do you think people could do. And what do you think governments should be doing. I think people should do should do everything. But i think right now. If i choose one thing everyone would do. It will be to to inform yourself and to try to understand the situation and tried to to push for political movement that doesn't exist because of the politics needed to to fix this doesn't exist today So i think what we should do as individuals is to use the power of democracy that to make our voices heard and to make sure that the people in power actually cannot continue to know.

They were estimating that it was going to be something like five hundred and it was actually held at the New York Times Center. Which is this beautiful event space and auditorium and they had to turn the TV room that they set up downstairs into an overflow room. Kezman writing people were super into it. It was just an incredible day. I left so inspired. There were so many panelists that were amazing right and including the person who opened the conference is our past guest Carina Emmerick and really beautiful dedication. she's a native American fashion designer and she did this really beautiful recognition of the land that nyc sits on as being the home of the lanark people who were moved to Oklahoma in eighteen sixties. So the whole the whole day was really great. And I don't know what your takeaways were but my takeaways from the day were that planetary health is human health that climate change is a human rights issue And also so many panelists. It kept coming back again and again and again that there's this direct correlation between environmental abuses and human rights abuses And I'M NOT GONNA go into like Hella detail here but you can jump on study hall yourself and listen in if you want to. But but it was. I opening inspirational heartbreaking at times. But but really really great. Yeah so Crema opened the show with a powerful land. Acknowledgement LIKE WHITNEY. Mcguire did this Powerful labor acknowledgement so you have the landing management and then you have the Labor acknowledgement. You know this country is built on the backs of millions of enslaved African Americans. You know so. It's kind of just this reminder of of where we come from so that we can move forward to a brighter future with acknowledging where we came from and where this country comes from and how it was built and who have been the custodians of this country before us. Yeah I mean Creena just to quote her. She said indigenous people make up four percent of the world's population and we are still protecting eighty percent of the world's biosystems and she didn't explicitly say this but she kind of reminded us that while Greta. Thunberg is a powerful white activist. She's become the face of climate change. Indigenous activists have been fighting for the last two centuries to protect their land. But Yeah my main takeaways. All Star that climate change is a human rights issue. I think you have panelists Lillian Lou. Who said one in six people in the world work in a job related to fashion that sixty million people worldwide and only about two percent earn a living wage? So you know lots of really powerful stuff. Climate Positivie was the theme so quote to close low for actually going back to our roots of living in harmony with nature by providing sustainable scalable solutions for the long-term with ecologically regenerative practices and projects in alignment with environmental justice for Black Brown and indigenous communities. And something I thought was so cool and I know I think I called you to talk about April was the one x one conscious design initiative which is so cool it says partnership between the Slow Factory Foundation and Serov Sqi supported by the UN. And basically it's these partnerships. I abstained future. So you're pairing fashion designers with scientists for instance and designer telfar. Clemens is paired with scientists the end Skyros. Yeah she's a professor at fit. And I my mind was literally blown out. I have her on the show and in fact after we get on recording this. I'm just gonNA email her and be like hi. Would you like to come on the show? Yeah because not only. Is she working with her students? Fit to bio engineer. Leather and algae-based yarn. So just think about that. I can trust listeners. She went and she was talking about it on on study hall about how you can grow leather shapes essentially so without even having to so it because algae will just form to itself around a mold she has this incredible company called algae net with their motto is biology is the future of fashion and they promote this closely product life cycle so so many cool things happening and I think you should absolutely ask her on the show that would be really really cool to hear more about bio
