A bear was like thirty years old whereas this next girl who looked the exact age greta. Thune berg is nine years old and you can hear by the way that she's speaking that this is clearly. The frustrations being vented by a nine year. Old of instances. Here that comes across as authentic. And i will vote her president. I looked up onto the wall and saw blm poster in an amanda gorman poster in case you don't know who that chicken did. A poll biden so-called inauguration. I was mad. I went up to my principal to tell them about the blm poster. I wanted it down. He said it's not coming down. I was like yeah because the twenty fifth nope lumber politics in school. He said that's weird. Were the one who they were the ones who made them. I said there should be no. Blm in schools period does not matter pictures and the font to us. We all understand the meaning.

Rioting burning buildings down while king governor waltz just sits on his throne all go changing the font or the color posters. doesn't that change the meaning. I am nine years old. Than i know that i love how she she looks exactly like greta thune berg only unlike greta who had kind of use her window of opportunity of a year was youtube spouse. You couldn't criticize her. She's got she's got like she has nine left stone down sweetheart. Just use it criticize everybody. They can't say anything back. They're not allowed. It's big tech policy.

Oh it's almost like there was some kind of various plot inter inter american flag tank type. She got an old navy before for fourth of july. All right so now. Let's move on here by the way hit. The notification bell subscribe because subscriptions don't mean a whole lot and especially the schedules going to be a little bit intermittent here for the month. I change my mind some long form videos every documentary lot every july we take some you know we take about two weeks off We don't want to hear in the comment section. Where are you well no. It's okay back the next month. I think five to seven like long form at wednesday's actually one with jason whitlock with aaliyah hollow and dave landau so We've been pretty typical a lot of stuff. We have to upgrade the studio. And i have to open my chest rods but no not. My heart's my heart doesn't work well but my heart itself is perfect. Explain it late. It's my bone is caving into my heart but what happens if i punch you really hard in the chest. Really how dare you. That's a missed opportunity. Many superman you tell me the reasons for getting it fixed. Yeah so let's talk about california since its cultural appropriation months It sucks now. We all know that it's such that california doing well right had population loss which is almost of an estate with that that much ocean front property everywhere and just rich and natural resources unfortunately rich in natural assholes so they tend to flock pastrana the brim. So let's start with this. A few reasons. Why california is do you remember. I think it was about this time last year. When donald trump pointed out that california wildfires were out of control poor forest management. I don't know if you remember it. Let's let's go back in time. And i see again. The forest fires stone starting again in california. I should get it. Clean your floors. You gotta clean your forest if many many years of leaves and broken trees and they're like like so flammable. I've been telling them this now for three years but they don't wanna listen the environment via other how they play that as it's actually true clean you try to do the donald trump's presidency. Donald trump tried to mr clean. A floor tried to pine sol redwoods. Donald trump tried to inject you with bleach. No he said disinfect instead. Maybe we could get in the body. He said cleaning the floor the differences. He says things that sound That are inarticulate. let's be honest but he knows what he means. Exactly what he's not whereas joe biden has no idea. Yeah it seems like that would be an industry term cleaned the floor of the forest the forest floor. They it clean the floors and this is not so. I know we have stuff. We've got to get to about this but this is not rocket science like i follow this very closely because of the wind business. And you're gonna find some. I'll give you after you go through because keep in mind. That trump was mocked mercilus media. Right here we have from politico. usa today. They said that they didn't think he understood. The science of wildfires. It says trump suggestions have prompted head-scratching from who say prescriptions more raking less water released into the ocean for environmental purposes suggest. He does not understand the science of wildfires then. Usa today reported the issue. Only get worse. If trump ignores climate change and gavin newsom tweeted. You don't believe in climate change. You are excused from this conversation. Hey that's a tactic of the left. Just removed them from the conversation just like parents at Pta meetings or people on big tech platforms or the president from big tech platforms or in this case the president from being correct absolutely well look you have wildfires. They're going to happen in this part of the country every single year. This is not a surprise what you see though is from two thousand twelve to two thousand sixteen or maybe even just before that that. It's huge drought. Right not a lot of wildfires had some for sure but not crazy. You know when the first year that they had like crazy. Wildfires in that entire stretch was twenty seven. Do you know what happened. At the end of two thousand sixteen it rained stuff grew then it died then it caught on fire. You know what happened. In twenty twenty. It rained in eighteen. In one thousand nine stuff grew it died. It caught on fire. If you get rid of that stuff you greatly enhance your chances of avoiding massive out of control fires and by the way the last two i believe we are caused by the reveal or the major ones were caused by. Pge right. they've just been sued for that. They had to pay a ton of money for that. They had to go through in retrofit their lines so they could touch. That's a good by the way you get you. Get a couple of birds in your beard. And your mr arborist good wine to come from california and two thousand twenty a complaint. You told me you had a couple of tidbits because you know about wine. That's the whole segment was no. That's go and also by the way you were talking about the key pini. Sorry yeah you were talking about them then. Of course it's exacerbated by them not clearing debris not doing controlled barrett. That's what people don't listen by the way. Don't buy a house in the middle of nowhere with the fire department. Forty-five minutes away woods all around you. That's a bad idea. Now in a helmet gonna piss an agenda naked. David gergen dressed in a female tracksuit. Well no finding. We just won't count your body as the toll like when you dial just back now. He didn't die. There's someone comment section right now if they know by the way. Hit that like. But if you're watching right now live this second. You can do it. Hit the spot. If you know what. I'm talking about the gergen. The redwoods nine show guess what. Donald trump is out of office. Yeah yeah and kind of like donald trump out of office. Now we can saying like before. We're saying no leak no leak. There's no lab leak and then he's.

How are Republicans grappling with a post-Trump Washington?
"The fight for the future of the republican party in the post trump era has arrived and one of the earliest proxy. Battles is playing out in the house of representatives republican conference chair. Liz cheney the third ranking republican in the house is facing pressure from some members of the conference following her vote to impeach now former president donald trump earlier this month for incitement of insurrection. Though it was the most bipartisan impeachment of president ever there was still only a handful of republicans who voted across party lines with democrats for impeachment. Cheney was the member with the highest name recognition and it's earned her the ire of some trump faithfuls who are now circulating a petition and calling for the wyoming lawmaker to resign from her spot in leadership representative matt rosendahl a freshman from montana and one of the lawmakers taking the lead in the effort won't say how many lawmakers have signed onto the petition so far his office says the timing is still quote up in the air on when hill. Submit the resolution. In the meantime the conference is brimming with drama with lines forming between those who would rather forget trump ever lead their party and those who think his brand of politics is its future is basically a right wing version of cancel. Culture says representative adam kensinger of a trump critic and one of the ten republicans to vote in favor of impeachment. If you don't like donald trump and you vote against donald trump. We're going to cancel you. We're going to say that you don't have a place in this party. It's no different house. Republican leadership didn't whip members to vote either way on impeachment leaving lawmakers to come to their own decision about whether the president incited a pro-trump mob to attack the us capitol on january sixth a day before the vote. Cheney put out a statement announcing she planned to vote against trump none of this would have happened without the president. The president could have immediately and forcefully intervened to stop the violence. He did not. There has never been a greater betrayal by a president of the united states. Have his office and his oath to the constitution. Cheney said in the statement. I will vote to impeach the president. The resolution tax that rosendahl office referred time to argues that democrats had used cheney's position quote as justification for a truncated impeachment process. It also notes that her position was out of line with most of the conference. Many republican lawmakers have been quick to fall on either side of the internal debate. With some coming to cheney's defense despite having themselves voted against impeachment. I don't think they ought to be punished. For voicing their opinion or casting their vote particularly when people were told ahead of time is a vote of conscience says representative. Tom cole. A senior member from. They're having to explain this back home to their own electors. I don't think we need to pile on to add additional penalties in washington dc while other leaders have also expressed support for cheney. Some of it has been tepid at best a spokesperson for leader. Kevin mccarthy said in an email to time that he quote does not support efforts to remove. Cheney is conference chair but in an interview on gray televisions. Full court press with greta. Van susteren mccarthy said. He thought she had to answer the conferences questions and registered concern that he hadn't been told of her decision ahead of time. Clearly you've heard some of our members who want to remove her. I'm not in that camp. Whip steve scalise said in a fox news appearance. This is an internal discussion that we're having and that we're going to work through kensinger said leadership hasn't been forceful enough in defending cheney kevin mccarthy can shut this the hell down right now but if they wanna go through with this and they want to have a discussion about leadership and they think that we should be on defense and liz should be on defense. We've got news for them. We're not the ones that should beyond defense kensinger tells time they should cheney's office declined an interview request for this article but in a fox news appearance on january twenty first. She said her vote came from a belief that her obligation was to the constitution. And to do what was right transcended politics. We have differences of opinion about a whole range of issues including about this one. I anticipate an confident. We will be united as a conference going forward. Cheney said the fallout hasn't been contained to washington back home in wyoming one high profile challenger anthony bouchard a state. Senator has already come forward to say. He'll primary cheney next year and one of trump's biggest defenders in the house. Florida representative matt gaetz travel to the wyoming state capital where he held a rally on thursday targeting. Cheney turn down for what hashtag removed. Cheney gates tweeted afterwards but there are prominent republicans from cheney's home state who have voiced their support for her as well. The house is going to make their own leadership decisions. But i support any says wyoming. Senator john barrosso as much as the two chambers of congress like to think of themselves as different bodies with different considerations perhaps the biggest short term take away from this still unfolding drama is the warning house. Republicans are sending to republicans in the senate which will next month begin the second impeachment trial of donald trump asked if he worried about the message. The house was sending two republican senators. Who might vote to convict. Trump barosso said senators would vote based on their own interpretation of the constitution. I don't see any correlation he says.
Migration chief calls for all displaced to be included in national COVID-19 vaccination plans
"Head of the un migration agency iom is strongly advocating for governments everywhere to respect the fundamental right of healthcare when it comes to ensuring vulnerable migrants in the displaced get equal access to covid nineteen vaccines in an interview for us news antonio vitorino once migrants to be included in all plants regardless of their legal status adding that im stands ready to provide practical support to countries who need help battling the pandemic iom's. Greta began by asking the right. To general to outline the overall impact of the pandemic on migrants and the displaced coming matinees had an enormous impact on people on the move first for most that house impact because usually migrants leaving very crowded lively places households and of course they are prone to be infected. And secondly we've lockdown with travel restrictions. There are almost three million migrants blocked stranded all over the world so there are also impact and also social economic impact very serious ones that Underline the vulnerabilities tyrants everywhere in the world. It seems that there's not really going to be back scenes for everyone immediately. And i was wondering if you could tell us i o n recommendations regarding the prioritization and the inclusion of migrants in the various vaccine plans that national governments are putting in place. We've telling me advocate to have and refugees internally displaced people fully include in the vaccination plans you respected their legal status because as the secretary general of the united nations are very clearly. No omni safe a delivery body safe so the reasoning for the interest of the host communities. He's also to guarantee that the migrants irrespective of their legal status have access to national vaccination plans. And what does that mean exactly. Are you asking for a special treatment. No not special treatment to follow the criteria they used for nationals being applied to non nationals. Which means recognizing those wanting more vulnerable positions where co mobility's who have because of their age take risks extra risks of being community so it's an equal treatment but in these equal treatment. Everybody's were getting greedy then. Do you feel like governments around. The world are receiving got message. They're understanding the importance of facing their privatization on public. Health principles rather than immigration status principles. I think that other quite a number of countries worldwide presence texas State of texas in the united states or portugal are even countries in latin america like ecuador. Why are accepting the presence and the excess of migrants to not just the testing mechanism. Put also through the vaccination mechanisms. But i still think that there are a number of countries that have not realized that it is the interest of the entire community to have migrants fully integrated in the vaccination plans. So that is worth to back. Many migrants are finding themselves a nine irregular situations and may fear. That could be arrested or deported. If they show up to get vaccinated. What can the government do in order to preempt to that. I think that there is a green simple which is the respect for the fundamental riley for healthcare. And that's why the show. And i supports the claim for universal health coverage and we know that a difficulty there because sometimes migrants especially the ones we ne- regular situation reluctant to have recourse to the national health system. Because they are afraid of being detained or deported. The key issue is to get into the trust and mutual confidence with those migrants and to guarantee them that there will be no law enforcement implications for having access to healthcare and especially to the vaccination process. And those who feel that maybe The vaccine has not been properly shot. There's a lotta vaccine hesitancy going around not just on the curve the vaccine on other vaccines as well. What is your message to migrants displaced persons around the world regarding covid nineteen vaccine. I think that the vaccines always f- some risks. But at the couldn't situation. After current moment i think there is sufficient evidence from the scientific and technical point of view that the vaccines that will be available are safe and they guaranteed the protection of the person's against the virus. So my message is very clear. I think that it is absolutely necessary that each one takes get off feels out house. Eckenroth congress possibly using the mosque washing the ants but at the same time every score recourse to the vaccines that is a tool medical put at their disposal to protect them against these very aggressive. Fire that we are confronted
Childrens book helps to discuss the environment with children
"We begin briefly with a message from the moon from a dog. One you know. Yes i dog on the moon. A friend of johnson. Greens of blueprint fame. I orchestra and a graphic book called the carbon neutral adventures. The indefatigable enviro teens and it is a mixture of fun in fact. Isn't it dog. yes. I wanted to talk not just about what climate change is because i think a lot of people understand that over and this is a book for ten to fourteen year old so i did want to explain what climate changes but almost more importantly i wanted to talk about. Why climate changes and what happened. How it happened and why it's still going on and why it's so hard to do something about it because that if you think about it logically which clearly a lot of people. It doesn't make any sense at all. No you actually summit up marvelously on page one hundred eighty and you say in fact if you imagine the person talking to you. This dog is in fact. A sort of modern version of the mad towed in a speedboat saying the planet is being ruined so wealthy adults can have second jetski. I don't know whether to be scared or sad or angry or something else. I just wanted to the all. Does that sort of sum it up. Yes it does because we talk a lot about the legacy that we're leaving young people and we're very apologetic and for all the grades in the world but we do talk about how they're going to have to fix it and that's just simply outrageous. Not only that we've trashed the planet so badly but also that we're now starting to talk to young people in terms of how it's their job to take care of it and win. Of course i say we. I mean the vast majority of humans on the planet because a lot of the decisions are in the hands of regular folk. But we do have this kind of desperation expectation that people will come along and put together something that we haven't been able to do and that's not really fair now. It isn't but you see in the book your referring to someone who looks like greater but she has a different name what is the name. Cordelia pine kind with it or gardenia. Pine cone is one of them. And that's the most wonderful name. I've come across in a long time. I wanted to put greater in the book infected. I tried to contact her and say would you read my book and write a forward and she didn't get back to me and that's okay 'cause she gets four million emails a day. Yes exactly so. I totally understand that. She wasn't available but it was really about being able to say someone like greater is doing this and we can't all be greta but she's in fact just one person who's doing the same thing that we need. Millions of young people to do now. There are lots of really good scientific references there. But there's one puzzled me. It's fairly long so let me actually read. What's here in the book. It's about piece of technology and you understand very well so far that when it comes to technology. I haven't a clue what's going on anyway. It says the d. foof elisa solar powered vacuum matic vowel sucks up all the nearby poop. Poison foof and flange through the hyper magnetic recycling filter to remove all the bills. Then it's passed at light speed down the anti-gravitational spewed out to be flogged. Back ended home in front. That spits the remains out the plumping shoot into a bucket. All that's left behind is a few nuggets of nickelodeon and you won't believe this. All the bandicoot of the workshop thought. This was hilarious because nickelodeon is a previously unknown form of completely renewable energy that is hugely powerful and totally clean how. We laughed and laughed now in three words. Could you summarize what have just read letitia. The inventing warburg come up with no. I can't not three words there. That's one of the superheroes in the book is leticia who was a genius. Science one bet and she invents all sorts of different machines that do different things with the that work in the mic workshop underneath a headquarters of the environs and the default elisa machine that latisha invented and it removes what they call the poison off which is in fact the in the greenhouse gases. And we know that that carbon isn't infect poisonous. But you just wanted in the right places in the right quantities. The default removed the poison for from the atmosphere. And one of the things. I realize with this wonderful invention which they start trying to deploy around the world. Is that even if you do in fact remove the carbon from the atmosphere. There's still a lot of other problems and difficulties that are going to be solved and it really trying to talk about how chafe nickel solutions to. Climate change are important but they're not infect the answer indeed and where is the island on which this otx. it feels like tasmania. But it isn't is it. It's not a nickel knows. Island is one of the places. I visit with. Captain snoot hall. Who runs the secret. You refuge the and suggests that if they really want to understand what climate change is that need to go on a perilous journey across the waterfall. And are they need to go and talk to the great nipple and the great nipple is a creature who lives at the top of the haunted volcano and explains climate change to them in
Per Grankvist is building a Swedish media empire around explainer journalism
"Hair. Thanks for joining us and ohio. So i think what initially intrigued me enough to have you on. The show is that you said that the that you're basically running the nordic version of vox dot com for the uninitiated. Vox is a very public policy focused website in the us. Before we get into that. I wanted to start with talking about how you got into the news business in the first place like i think you started out as just like an independent blogger blogging during your free time right. That's right. I was blogging on the topic of sustainability and to understand and explain how companies could record sustainability and make money at same time and sustainability. Just for it's like a make sure of environmental issues how how companies can reduce their impact on the environment things like that right yup unwieldy social aspect of it so the supply chain and how you treat your people in your employees on the diversity questions. It's the full bag. And i was seeing. That company was starting duties and from a business perspective which was quite new in sweden. So i a cover that. And after a few years i got picked up a donald radar on the swedish businessweek and so they acquired the blog and asked me to head up the stain ability section. That was both online and events and in the paper unsold stock a couple of years. And what were you doing is like a day job while you were an independent blogger like was were you working in sustainability or was just the. Was this just an interest that you add. Start off as an interest. I was working as the head of sales and marketing. At wayne's coffee which is basically the is starbucks equipment in the and yeah. That was my day job. And i started the blog. Ganden started to do some. Freelance works talking about sustainability. the all new zealand Leaning into this trying to explain things so how did you. How did you find that audience for your blog. You know before you had any kind of institutional support. The audience found me. I think and so a lot of people start to reach out and asked if i wanted to come see them and i reached out the few companies. Say hey i need to understand a bit. More on those countries where i ki- and companies of that sort and they found me wealth read on the topic and we had way compensation dr turned into articles and sometimes speaking gig sensible and so you said swedish businessweek acquired you. Is that the swedish version of the american magazine businessweek. No it's it's it's a. It's a similar magazine. Exactly called business. That comes a fatter But it's basically the same but it's it's not affiliated and did they. Have you just come on and start blogging on their website. They did that and also they made me an editor and publisher. So i got to head up a new division focusing on covering these issues the emergent climate issues marching supply chain issues and so on. We did that. The nominee channel way which was kind of new and pioneering in duffield and. It sounds like swedish takes the sustainability stuff more seriously than they do in the us. Yes we do but also a bit full of ourselves so we come from a more sort of systemic point of view. Here is some research. And i've sunday's let's do this together. It's not it's not business oriented at all but more more from moral perspective or moral highground. what you could say about bitta. The greta The wasn't out approach here where we look at. How can we make business. How can we make money of this. As that was something i brought to the table and so working for that magazine. Did it raise your national profile. Like obviously sweden is a relatively small country. Compared to the us you became well relatively well known as a intellectual. Yeah you can say that. I mean i'm curious. Persons are trying to understand things and someone said Gold made the malcolm glad well of sweden of sorts. Because i was at a constantly getting interested in all kinds of new stuff. Oh here's something. Old filter bubbles. Oh here's something social media how that works on. So i tried to explain it soon as i learned something and that gave me a reputation Landed me a new job as the on the opinion pages of one of the big newspapers in sweden is a thug. Biggest national newspaper here by god gate Swedish national brokaw. Coster sat equivalent of pbs in us. Yeah so you became so not just well known in printed pap- papers but was it your voice or were you also appearing on tv i was also paying k the i do have much more of us that are radio. Appearance was forced on tv. So every friday. I come along to get with two other people on the panel discussed today. made make sense of the dole. I was basically my job. So you're a recognizable like you're walking on the street people would recognize who you're

You'll go what bob dylan. His stuff is going to be of vera readily available companies to put in tv commercials. Because bob dylan sold out. It's bob dylan's if you don't like it if you think you know that he's Not that kind of guy that he wouldn't ever seventy-nine by the way he sold out. He took the money. God bless him his family's gonna why he needs the money but his family is going to be fabulously wealthy for generations but companies like target nap bullen and whatever flow what is flow sell insurance. Press gress yes i defense. They're going to be able to play. Dylan's pay whatever the going rate is and they could play it and you'll hear it all over the place just like you here. You know the rolling stones in some cases or taylor swift and other artists who was amazing. When i read the story it was about some of the other artists of fleetwood. Mac sold theirs for like. I get the number here here. It is eighty million dollars they sold. It wasn't even the whole catalog eighty million dollars. Fleetwood mac and dillon skate. Like columbine could probably name more wallflower songs and he can bog way. Bob dole i. It's right over my head. I have no idea i look. I'm surprised he got three hundred million. Based on the fact that that ship has sailed a long time ago dylan receives a lump sum between two hundred and four hundred I'm not sure what the what. The stevie nicks sold their publishing catalog for eighty million dollars. The dylan portfolio six hundred songs while other bands who have sold their catalogs sold. You know taking the money. Blondie barry manilow and the estates of john lennon and kurt cobaine. I believe john lennon the beatles. Paul mccartney bought them for like a ridiculous amount of money Like eight hundred million. Paul mccartney owns well. Didn't jackson by michael jackson and then mccray jackson and a falling out story there. But there's only one to look up jerry. Three hundred million eighty million two hundred to four hundred million. What did what did brian. Wilson's father sell the beach boys catalogue for another against the wishes without the kids. Even knowing and i think he sold it for like seventy dollars and a coke or something new never spoke to his father again obviously but if the beach boys is the one you would want because of the catchy jingles. Yeah that's true point and that the father sold it for nothing. He had no idea what he had. And what the value of wasn't a guy goes. Hey i'm gonna dig deep here. I'll give you five hundred dollars. Whereas i sold and brian wilson was never the same after it happened. It's a good point. But i think dylan's got a lot of those you know catch even though they you know might be whatever. The revolutionary songs at times they are a change in blowing in the wind and songs like that which will which will fit nicely in commercials. And we'll be sick of them all with and i'm sure he had control over it and limited the exposure but i guarantee you. He sold the rights to some two songs to some commercials. I assume right Yeah i guess. So i mean i don't blame me if you're gonna die soon and you wanna take care of you. Offspring kids grandkids. You say. What the hell. What do i care if not be capitalizing on all the different changes that are going on in the music industry. I bet it's like a five person team that he has controlling the catalog right. Like it's a he. He owns time. Bob no one said a need the money for anything the the couple couple of years ago. Long before covid were dylan on went on tour and performed at three hundred nights in a year three hundred nights in one year deal and he was like seventy five and i don't know anyone that went to see him. He wasn't playing the big rooms anymore but he's just addicted to performing and singing his songs and i must have just an insane amount of money already. I mean just. But it's like what bob cousy sold all his Collectibles always memorabilia. He said what do i need it for. This is going to pay for my grandkids education. And can you blame him for that. I wouldn't. I'm a big lira. Guy when it comes to rock and roll. If you consider dylan rock and roll and dylan for what i again. He's not my bag particularly. I don't have any bob dylan on my phone. But his his lyrics. If back on my i always think that you know if you get ten best lyrics of all time. You don't need a whether they know which way the wind blows is one of the great lines right and i'm with you. I'm a lear. Emma word man to and i love you know singing along to whatever tangled up in blue and he. He won the nobel prize for whatever writing. Poetry didn't show up for the award. You know. I believe. I believe greta thune. Berg was second so she'd go toward for him but no he won the nobel prize. I think he blew the market and show up to get the thing and these the only singer or songwriter to win to win it
Fire devastates world's largest sand island
"Gladys boo knows firsthand. the devastation climate change is already visiting on the world. The twenty five year old has vivid memories of kale island a tiny islet in the solomon islands archipelago where she used to swim and barbecue on the white sand beaches. It's also where her grandparents used to live decades back but kale island no longer exists. It was declared lost in two thousand sixteen after it fully submerged beneath the water a victim of rising sea levels. She worries more of her home. In the south pacific could share the same fate if global temperatures continue to rise at the same pace and just decades. My country's map has changed drastically. She says boo and others who have personally experienced the worst effects of climate change took center stage at a two week. Summit for youth climate activists. The virtual event was organized out of frustration at the postponement of the twenty twenty united nations climate. Change conference also called cop. Twenty six meeting between nations called mock cop twenty six. The summit was attended by more than three hundred fifty delegates from one hundred eighteen countries and included speeches from activists and stakeholders from around the world including the uk government minister in charge of the original cop twenty six in a year dominated by pandemic related disruptions. The mockup to six may be one of the largest international meetings focused on climate change. Even if it lacked official status but another goal of the event was to elevate the voices of those most affected by climate. Change it's a conscious decision. Based on consensus among youth activists that people in the developing world and other marginalized voters are not being represented in the climate movement which has largely focused on activists from developed nations. Be a greta tune. Berg's fridays for future or extinction rebellion which was established in the uk. The climate movement has been often inaccessible and is generally dominated by middle class. White people in the global north says a mercedes rodriguez richer to an activist from the uk student climate network. We can't stand up to this challenge without listening to the people whose voices matter the most in an attempt to be more inclusive. The virtual conference says granted more delegates. To what organizers call most affected people in areas or mapa including the philippines and bangladesh these countries and others were granted five delegates as opposed to three from most developed nations. Giving them more speaking time. More than seventy percent of the delegates represented at the summit or from developing countries. Having more delegates also gave these countries more representation and say in the wording of the final statement from mockup twenty six many behind. Mock cop twenty six. See this as a first step toward changing the emphasis of the youth climate movement. Several studies have shown that a warming planet will disproportionately affect developing countries more than developed nations however mainstream climate movements of faced criticism for not being inclusive of the most vulnerable nations earlier. This year. vanessa. Nakata a ugandan. Climate activist was cropped out of a photo in which she posed with four activists from europe including gratitude berg. It felt like i had been robbed in my space. Nicotine told time in july if climate justice does not involve the most affected communities than it is not justice at all. The photo was later replaced by the new agency that published it when we include everyone. You realize how a lot of the problems are. Common across countries says mitzi thanh a twenty two year old activists from the philippines who has been volunteering at the summit and is one of the speakers representing her country. Thanh has lived through extreme weather events in her native manila which has witnessed progressively more powerful typhoons with each passing year. She says activists like her who have seen the life altering damage. Climate change is already inflicting can go beyond being just sad stories and statistics and take an active role in creating a global solution. There's evidence this approach might result in more effective action to a twenty nineteen report by the united nations development programme found that vulnerable developing countries are leading the world by enacting ambitious pledges on emissions and climate resilience so the narrative. Necessarily isn't we are drowning. We need help says samira sarala a climate change policy expert at the united nations development programme. But rather look how we have seen the consequences and taken the destiny into our own hands. Abu the activist from the solomon islands feels that amplifying stories like hers will help people understand that the climate crisis is already a reality for people in many parts of the world when people who don't believe in climate change. Listen to our stories. They will hopefully empathize and engage she says.

The danger of herd immunity in solving the COVID-19 problem
"Herd immunity, and it's a concept some leaders and scientists have considered when it comes to responding to this pandemic. NPR's Jeff Broomfield reports on what exactly this idea is and why it presents troubles. The thinking goes like this. Sooner or later, the pandemic cast stand and Debbie shredder gets it like everyone wants a way out psychologically right, because no one's ever coped with something of this scale, and it's not like a crisis like a hurricane or 9 11 where it's like, time bound or geographically bound. This is like everyone everywhere for indefinitely right now appeals to people, right? Treaters of researcher at the University of Edinburgh Medical School in the UK, and it turns out there is a theoretical way it could end. If enough people get sick and recover and they become immune to the corona virus. Then the pandemic fizzles. Those who haven't gotten it yet are safe. The technical name for this is herd immunity in its purest form. It's like Darwinian self selection, right? We let the virus go. Whoever is going to die, I will die. That's life and then whoever makes it we'll have hopefully some form of immunity. Several governments tried with the idea of the beginning of the pandemic, including the U. K, But in the end, most decided it would cost too many lives. There was one exception Sweden. They kept businesses open and let people make their own choices. At one point, Swedish officials said Stockholm would returned immunity by the end of May, but they have not reached it by the end of May. They just lost a lot of lives and also took an economic it shredder says. Herd immunity works as a math problem, but at an individual level Swedes stayed home. People don't want to catch Cove it nobody wants to be part of the herd to stay that way. But could nations eventually reach herd immunity more slowly? Probably not, says Jeffrey Shaymen of Columbia University. So example, I like to think about it. South Korea. They're getting 50 cases a day right now. They will hold on for another 1000 days, which is almost three years that have 50,000 cases, which is 30.1% of their population. Most experts think herd immunity take somewhere between 50 to 80% of the population, even in the U. S. Even it's 60,000 cases a day. It'll take at least into 2021 possibly years more to reach those levels. And there's another looming problem. People may be able to get the Corona virus more than once, shame and has studied other Corona viruses that cause common colds, and he found people could be re infected. Some of them were 48 weeks separated from the previous infection, which is rapid and that might have been a relapse. But others we clearly know are different. They were 8 to 11 months apart. Greta Bauer is an epidemiologist at Western University in Ontario, she says this fall and winter maybe the time we find out about re infections, and if Covitz survivors get even mildly sick, the second time around Corona virus will keep circulating. If that were the situation, then there's no potential to develop a level of herd immunity sufficient to stop the infection. I corresponded with 16 different scientists, and almost all believed that achieving herd immunity as a practical matter was virtually impossible. Without a vaccine with the vaccine. It will be a lot easier to control the virus, but it will likely still exist in pockets around the world. So what's going to happen again? Researcher devilish reader I think it's going to be with us play forever. At this point, I think I mean at a global scale, it's going to be with us, and it's how we decide to live with it. There are ways to live with it. Test the sick, isolate them until they're better and everybody where a mask and keep their distance.
Trump says he’s ‘flexible’ on Jacksonville’s RNC convention, amid rising COVID-19 cases
"President Trump says his plan for big Open events during next month's Republican National Convention will be flexible, if need be due to a spike in the number of Corona virus cases in Florida. There's NPR's don Gani, eh? The president wants a big in person event for his RNC acceptance speech. That's what led the GOP to move the convention to Jacksonville from the original location. Charlotte after North Carolina's governor would not guarantee the use of the city's major sports arena. Then last night in an interview with Greta Van Susteren on Great television, the president for the first time softened his position on the topic. Here is his response when she asked about the convention and rising Corona virus numbers in Florida. It really depends on the timing. Look, we're very flexible. We could do a lot of things, but we're very flexible. The RNC is scheduled for the final week of

"That movie. Love that movie. What's not to love love? And you're and you're very fond of John. Wayne I understand. John Wayne's my favorite person who moves in the movies removed beautifully. He moved beautifully. Yeah I I love How slow he moves? That was always the thing that I just. I just like. He takes his time. The takes his time. Is this scene at Honda. Where he's talking to Geraldine page while he's making horseshoes? Oh yeah you know. He's firing up. Poor shoes offering awesome cool off and it's it's more than just a bit of business right. It's a it's a major bit of choreography right. He never stops talking ray. But he's he's it's movement this choreography. It's quicker famous put there's also Languid witness to him and he has the thing that I think movies can do which I don't know if he's handsome or not. It goes beyond on that. He's he has a Gra- There's gravity in a presence and a feeling and You know would say it's the thing that with movies were actors can become their own cinema themselves they can dictate the terms of it and in He had that I just. I think I'm also because I'm always interested in In in movement an and I think it's probably has to do with my background in dance. Just you know him anywhere in a movie.

"It and you can even post it online so you can distribute your own movie. Now that's right I mean and that wasn't available to know and he was starting no or anybody of a of a of his age ship bracket and This is just in the past decade or so that this is to pass right but what a sea change. I know I mean I think it's Obviously there's lots of things that are changing about filmmaking and the form itself of kind of everyone being a documentarian themselves in some level But then also you know how the form of what's captured on on a camera when there are new forms and new things developing. I always come back to is that. I do think that movies are durable form in the sense of like in one sitting that there's An experience it's somewhere between like ninety minutes and three hours or whatever it is that you have experience in a sitting and I think it's a I think as much as the everything changes in the way people see in the different things and there's a lot of talk about that and of course there should be okay and And of course everything changes but it's it's also people gathering together to see a story in one go. That's about as old as you get like that is. We've been doing this for a long time. I don't think that's going away. I think it and there's all these permutations offshoots in different versions but that. I think we'll stay. I think so too. I mean you know. Television Division is great and the new generation television. That's being that's being created now is understandably not only getting a huge audience. I put a lot of respect and a lot of engagement on the audience's part but it's not the same thing as what you just described. No it's different. It's it's different and that's better. It's just just different experience. I just think it's funny that the the idea that people believe that somehow movie theaters would go away way. You would never say that about a concert You would wear say they're gonNA stop touring because nobody goes to see them. No you want to see your favorite band or singer in person Ray. Luby's you know I I loved. I loved what Sam Mendis said when he won a nineteen seventeen one of the Golden Globes. He said I'm so. Oh excited because I hope that this will get. It opens next week in theaters. I hope more of you will go to the theater and see it and boy did then but that's what else greater full that's ideal because what he's saying is I don't. It's not not caring but I don't care about your water care about you. Go about film and then maybe going to see the way it's meant to be scene. Yeah I agree I mean I do think it's I do think it's funny. I mean I duNno no no I. This is a probably longer conversation than the spot. CASS gives credit like th that. I don't want to take over the whole thing but I do think I think what's interesting in an economy in in in is there's A. There's a tremendous amount of of convenience in terms of you know Whether it's getting an uber that plays music. Hugh have chosen already like this sort of seamless. Experience that you can have Or you know Being at home in the comfort of your home and all these things that do. Are you know amazing innovations and we have Ah the ability to take advantage of in this country but at the same time when you are when you go to museums uh-huh now How crowded they are and it's inconvenient to see like if you're GonNa go see Monet's waterlilies willies that's inconvenient? They are there they are there. They are not moving they are there and actually it's more or popular than ever. So maybe there's something swinging the other direction about it's it's this the sort of luxury of inconvenience which I don't know that's a that's a half baked? Thought Nobody I. It's an intriguing thought though and as you say it's a lengthy conversation yes but it's a but it's a really important one. Yeah now for instance. You chose to shoot Komo. thirty-five the luxury of inconvenience no. That's a very luxurious thing. I chose to shoot movie on film. I chose to Shuman Schumer movie on film for a few different reasons. One of one of the reasons was my movie takes place in a in the eighteen sixties and although they didn't have motion pictures than they did have taxi and it felt close to the closest to that medium so And I mean then. There's the practical reasons of in terms of the way. It looked it as they say falls off. The truck looks pretty close to how you want it to look so even though on paper it is more expensive or it is more complicated. It also needs needs less done to it later so aunts and there's another reason which is you know I can't. He uses an argument other than I find. I for many re film more emotional Israel for me for me. It is more not always not all the time not everything but like there is something about being on the set that shooting foam. But it's different it is different isn't actor. It feels different when they when they see. Check the gate something different right When you hear the film film rolling it you experience it as being on stage young? I'm sure because you know everybody's on their their toes loose Yup 'cause they have to be on their toes. You don't have an endless amount of digital Capacity so you can shoot something over and over and over again when you roll film it matters it matters. That's right it doesn't it's not. It's not the feeling that there's not that feeling of just analysts Endless Time Yup which idea of endless time is an illusion? Any Way Day on digital but Yeah with film. It's it's definitely feels more like that. And you know my DP. WHO's wonderful full? Yeah you're so who's shots. Just stunning movies for him. He was I mean the other well. He's he's barely worked on digital. He's like why wouldn't you shoot it on film. I was like Oh well welcome this is we now. We don't news like what. Yeah but he's French and he he works I mean he he shut Luca Guadagnino I am love and he works with. Olivia asked say us. I mean it's it's called the film we should say okay well elsewhere so yeah no but it but it was very. You're making a painting you use paint. Yes yes that's right But it ah but in any case. And he's very he's very that's that's that's the that is he understood stood that medium and you know it's funny to people say things like Now everybody's like Oh. It's so much harder to light. It's so much harder to do this. I'm like not if you know how to do it. I mean yeah they did. They did make movies somehow right now. They made movies. Like I want to ask you about this. Because it's a favorite brief encounter. Oh Oh my God. Could there be better movie. Could there be a more beautiful beautifully. Shot I know beautifully acted. Oh my God I love that movie so much also you know I was just speaking about briefing counter the other day and how much I love it and you know one thing. That's striking to me. Briefing counter. Talk is made by David. Lean and when you think of like be masculine filmmaking kid think of David Lean I mean he could really shoot desert's like you know like he was a big filmmaker and brief encounters so perfectly dictate human size and it's amazing to me that that I mean that truth that he finds in the epic he also finds lines in the intimate and I just I mean that's why he's such a great artist to me obviously but he I don't know I just just at. There's something emotional to me about like the the man who paints on the biggest canvas also took that talent to make the story. Yeah I mean I also just that you fall you fall in love with her and them but you fall in love with her. Trevor Howard Celia Johnson. She was married to a Muslim. She or is. She was an todd and Ann. Todd was passionate friends. Yes yes that's right uh-huh yeah passionate friends also very beautiful and painful But Yeah love.

"It but I had a very emotional moment actually with Josh Safdie at the critics choice awards. WHO's one half of the SAFDIE brothers Josh and Benny and I've known Josh and Benny since I was twenty one We met at South by southwest. They had a short film film. I had a tiny little contribution to movie giovane movie and we met we both still in school and and we realize we're both. We were both lived in New York and we became really good friends. We were roommates for awhile. I left on my couch like I mean very. We snuck into New York from last. Because they you know there were great movie makers there that we wanted to be and so anyway. We had this very emotional moment. Where like someone's like can I get a picture of you together and they usually? Yeah Music Roommate's like you know it's very so I'm in. It was a very special moment. And I think the thing for me about And those filmmakers in those films and it was It was Josh Penny Saftey but it was also I met Barry Jenkins and then time because he had made medicine for melancholy. An errand cats and reiver's so young and the dupe loss brothers. Andrew Pajamas Ski I loved the work they were making. We all took the work we were doing very seriously and I feel like as much as young artists need anything they need a community to bounce stuff absolutely. Because that's it that's as important as any other more I think marker you can you can have the dip further your career. But I don't think anyone does anything in isolation so to have a group of people that you know you. Could you know. Go to the movies as you all these different things or you all hate the same thing so you bond over that like you have someone to talk about the medium with on a consistent basis. Listen what you're trying out and anyway and it's very meaningful to me that like you know. Now we're in our mid thirties. And I can NC Josh Safdie at an award show I know well. They're riding the crest of the wave with the uncut gems season and which is a hell of a film. I loved it. I sat at telluride tonight. We saw him the the Verna Herzog and I was like back it blew ever wants lid off. I felt like fun and then tire theater with like what in the world is this and I was just delighted alighted the whole time I was also I mean I just had a sandler was incredible. I thought their filmmaking was just amazing and bananas and actually they where shooting uncut gems at the same time that I was shooting little women so josh and I were on the phone when they were in the casino That they shoot in with Julia places the Bat and all that and he was like yeah. We're shooting in a Casino Darius in their league and then I was like lakes in the rural Massachusetts and hey anyway I loved it. I thought it was a to me. It was the culmination of so much of the work that they've been I'm doing and and and and they're kind of particular filmmaking and it was It was just really exciting to see it and to see it with like no. Oh I had no idea what it was going to be. That's a fun of seeing things like at telluride which I see you guys at I love telluride I I just love it. It's what's special festival you know what's crazy is in looking it all of your films Greenberg is twenty ten down. I know so we we met you ten years ago. I know the how in the actual like I know. Where does it where does and of course my dad and I always joke about overnight sensation I think in the world? Yes you look and you go overnight for ten years yes it's true now it's crazy. No it's it's crazy I don't know I mean you know it's I. It's funny also because my my partner Noah who directed Greenberg Lindburg but Noah Baumbach some guys some guys you know. He's he's fifty and he's been making movies since he was twenty four. You're twenty five and he's making movies for twenty five years. He's made ten narrative films in that time and he and I. It was just the sort of realization relation with the did a retrospective at metro graph and And that's a body of work for twenty five years of filmmaking. And that's you know it's one of the wonderful things about filmmaking is that it's it's difficult takes long time time. which is wonderful because it's he? It's not like Tetris. You're never gonNA get so good at it. Then it gets boring like it's only ever going to be hard. Yeah there's not another speed it comes that it's just hard and it's hard on a new way I mean Tetris does eventually pretty hard. But like I got disturbingly family. Good at Tetris at one point But I that thing of you know even if you make movies your whole life life you only get a handful like an each movie you make. It's the only time you're gonNA make that one and it makes it very vivid. What you're doing while you're doing it and like I really always are human? I use when I'm up against it with something and I'm like I'm only going to make this movie once so I wanted to be right So give me the ball gowns. I heard her off your who imparted this. The nuggets not to me personally but I read it if you make if you shoot a film for sixty days fairly. I am vicious movie. And you make one compromise every day sixty compromises in your movie. Yeah and I mean that. That's a a AH kind of stark way of looking at it but yes it sort of underscores what you just said right now. The people I ah some observer might say why she being so stubborn about this way. What's the big deal? I know right then you have to fight for your belief leave for your vision. Yeah and also. You're the only one that knows. I mean you bring everyone into it and and an and ideally you have a team around you. And I had such an amazing group of artists with me on both ladybird and little women and that ideally and hopefully they're all kind of dreaming the same dream you are so that you know what the thing is before it exists. But like you've got to fight for it because it's not I mean no one will ever care as much as you so you have to. There's no cavalry coming and you're the one who has to be your own cavalry and that's I used to think that directors had a certain kind of personality and that's it's what made them directors and then. I realized that making movies gives you that personnel. That it's a it's a reverse osmosis in a way the yeah. Ah No actually no made a documentary Where you talk to Brian? DEPALMA is close friends with them. which is I I suppose not included in the ten narrative films but The eleventh But he brian said something at the end. which just I All all filmmaking is. It's just a record of your mistakes. Wow Record of everything you got wrong man. Oh that's a totally fatalistic. Wow is it but but I know what he means. He's saying it's a hard hard one you said to me when you publish the first movie guide all you can see his mistake. People were coming over me all my gosh all he you could see. Wow think like he was eighteen when he first published that Book Almighty particulars. But you know when you learn how young the beetles are what. I can't imagine making a film especially for the first time because you know my mom always says once you finish building a house you you know how to build a house right you know. I can't imagine you finish lady bird you go cool. I'm ready to make a movie now. Oh Yeah it's true the things that and also you only learn there is no one applicable lesson kept. I think on Lady Bird I was even kept looking for the one lesson and as soon as you think you have the one lesson you learn the op like like sort of like I see the thing to always do is to make sure you have them do it. You know really fast and or you know and then you'll get to the cutting.

"Harvey Buddy I'm Leonard Maltin Jesse Molten. And you're listening to Maltin on movies. There's a little echo in this room. Isn't there Laura sitting actually on a giant stage in the middle of Iceland or not. I like that to be true. But it's one of those workspace places and so it sounds a little different than usual usual. That's why but if it sounds different than last weeks or next week. That's because we have Greta Gerwig here today right. I wasn't there last week and I know be there next week. Yeah I know upsetting setting but one time. I'm glad I'm here. I glad to hear too. I'm really glad that I got to watch you. You sitting at that table with Sir Sharon and yes amy basket hell everybody yeah exactly critics choice fixture. There was like the girl party it was beanie came over. I don't know if you saw that moment. A lot of what was it was very imperfect perch to just watch the crazy all around at at one point when Nicole Kidman walked past us. Oh Yeah and They were counting down because nobody would sit down. The thing about these awards type dinner situations is that no one in cares at the dinner because they just don't Wanna see each other right so excited to get to hang out that when the actual TV bit is happening and those bless those poor or managers like they just can't like please the duck. I know and are going to be the one who yells at Nicole Kidman. 'cause I'm not no. I know everybody I know. Well she can do what she wants. She's standing there going. That's fine I always feel like it's funny will. It's true the Golden Globes and true the critics choice that is True Academy Awards which we've been to one is That that Matt the at the I do sometimes feel like there is a mad dash to the seats though which is sort of like. It's almost like the teachers coming in and I was doing it. He was sitting here. Nicole Kidman did it look still standing almost childlike No one did it. schoolday flashback it. Is I work spirit. Awards every year talent and over like the cool kids smoking corner. Oh yeah all standing there and evidently Ashley own like forty miles away going. She's Taco you guys. I know she is really cool. She's she's intimidating very Especially in the cool kid smoking corner via just I can't but she's like a city cage group in New York she's she's she's got away. Yeah Yeah now you grew up in Sacramento. I did I did not grow up an exam. Not I'm not a city Sonic Sacramento. I'm exotic Louis. Normal yeah I mean I do truly feel that yeah I grew up in Sacramento. And what impelled you to go to New York go to school well I mean there is a lot of reasons I I. I had wanted to move to New York from the the time I was very young. I had a formative trip to New York when I was five and then another one when I was eight but the I wanNA five I went to go see a lot of Broadway shows other ones that go see. Forty Second Street with Jerry sure and I saw it was thanked teen eighty nine ninety. You know I saw a gypsy with time. Daily style I saw I saw cats cats both in New York and in and in the Winter Garden Theatre in in London but in any case they had this idea of New York I had an idea of New York had an idea of like wanting to get back there and I think I mean particularly forty second street from me because it was actually one of the last giant tap choruses. They didn't of that stretch of shows and it was just I I think for to be a five year old kid to see something like that was d- it was genuinely life changing so I always had that in the back of my head so then I I applied for schools. I was like I WANNA go to New York City so What I applied to Nyu as an actor? And I put to juilliard as an actor and I didn't get it but I- i- Barnard was Where I went to school women's College at Colombia and I was I hadn't known about it until I went to New York to actually audition for Nyu for theatre school and my dad said. Why don't we go look at Barnard and I was like no and then I got their noses love it here so then I kind of went all out and said I really go to this school and I was very lucky they let me in and then it was kind of life changing but I yeah I wanted? I went to New York for college and I have never left Except for to come to La occasionally and did you feel you fit in. Yes yes I mean. I felt like I felt like I fit in. Insofar as it was a bunch of people who didn't fit in anywhere else gonNA found their place and I just loved all those women didn't like I just they were all just so smart and cool and interesting and weird and I just was like oh no I want to be we just like them and then and then I it was like I found the group that did that. I didn't know I had well that's that's another life changing. Oh my God experience it was everything also I think because I was so I was always pretty passionate in an intense one. I was a kid like I loved things Li and I wanted to you know I had trouble not taking everything quite seriously. Louis and the hallmark. I think of most teenagers coolness is not caring. Yeah and all I did was care and I couldn't figure out how to not care and and then when I got to Barnard I just met all these people who you even. If it wasn't the same thing I was interested in like. Oh one of the girls in my hall is is she was she was astrophysics. It was a thing and computer. You computer hacking she'd hacked her boyfriend was that Syracuse and she'd hacked every email account he had which I was like. I think that the illegal but also amazing that you know how to do this like it was that level of just total engagement. That was new to me to be around people who were. That's just like just deeply into what they were doing. Well that's that's one of the things you capture so beautifully flee in lady bird is is that intensity of emotion yes teenagers feel and it's very real to them. Yes and you tapped into the. You're still young woman but still you have to be in touch with that younger self in order to write and direct. You know something. Actually well I think you know it's funny because we'll obviously the two films I've written and Directed Lady Bird and little women women I also equally felt that Lewis male caught who actually wrote Little Women in her mid thirties and published when she was thirty six which this is my age which felt sort of faded She also had a really clear line to that The those intense feelings and those kind of wild ambitious dreams actually one of my favorite chapters and little little women is Castles in the sky. And it's just them talking about stuff they want in the future and it's amazing and that's when they you you know they they lay out all their dreams and I was and it was willing. I grew up with his book. I loved this book but then it wasn't until I regretted that I was like she gives an entire chapter girl saying what they want in the nineteenth century and it reminded me of you know the work work eight already done writing lady bird like it reminded me of myself in the best way which you know and I it's just amazing to me how much As much as things change that that sort of that passion of us that's why you can read it and be like oh it's simply. We didn't advance dance beyond ourselves. It's everyone's been saying the same thing but because it's so obviously true that story and the way she set it out in the way she wrote it is still so fresh and no and I mean it's really. That was was the thing when I reread the book that I And I had read it since it was fifteen and then I read it thirty.

"Well no I you know it's interesting Meryl Streep said this and I've quoted it because it's really smart because she's actually one of the smartest people I've met not not just period. She's she's just so smart but she said them she said that The one of the reasons that there were so many great characters for women at that time. mm-hmm was that There is no real danger that she's going to take his job so if she's not going to take his job she can. She can be as outrageous and say whatever she wants because we're not worried that she's got any of that money away and as soon as it becomes an issue shoe later than female characters change And I was like. Why are you that smart? I know it is it is it's great and and I and I think it it gets something very true and there's this great monologue in the film by Amy March which she talks about kind of the tough choices and sacrifices that women have to make and read that that was directly inspired by your conversation with Merrill. Just another thing I still from. Yes no no this. A scene where Amy March describes really the stakes of marriage for her that that that would came directly out of a conversation precision with Merrill who who said this is what you have to make the audience understand and And also for me because of the character of amy who I loved it gave amy context that she didn't have before and I think amy has been a a misunderstood understood character and I felt that in some ways I wanted her to get some real estate as an adult woman to explain. Why why she thinks Sushi things before we go? I have to also say congratulations. To your Hubby Noah Baumbach. He's nominated for best original screenplay. Replay for marriage story also in contention for best picture. What's it like having competing films vying for best? Pictures are a little bit of friendly competition. honestly. There's just so much kind of amazed joy. At home I'd say It was a surreal moment when we both Looks at our phones yesterday morning. we can mutually had a moment of legs tend to face the music eh but then but then it was just I mean it was extraordinary. We were just totally ecstatic. And honestly what am I. Don't even know how to express how amazing it is because it is you know I.

It was incredibly exciting that we were able to include Greta herself on our all podcast when she was interviewed by The Guardian Global Environment editor Jonathan Watts about how it all began. Be sure to stick around to the end of the episode where we explore. What the impeach halts but Greta and for the strikes when I was maybe seven years old when I before I I learnt and understood climate change on what was happening with the environment I I saw the world? Nature's it's just something that was going to be there last summer age fifteen. Greta Timberg skipped classes and sat down on the cobblestones outside the Swedish parliament with a hand painted banner in the first school. Strike the climate action. She cut a lonely figure but uh-huh activism was quickly contagious before long she'd been joined by thousands of others and found herself speaking in front of world leaders at the UN and Davos adults. Keep saying we owe it to the young people to give them hope. But I don't want your hope I don't want you to be hopeful. I want you to panic eight months later and now sixteen this teenager with her trademark plants has become. I'm a role model to children and adults across the world.

I've been here also plan in New Year's game it's called GonNa take my horse to the old laying sign. We were going to be joined this time by A. Ah with Jesse what happened here. This is the second week in a row. This is not an accident. I T's up last week so a few so coming now. In on January seven is a new book by Cory Asbury a wreck love and he of course is a songwriter of reckless glove. He sort of been on a sabbatical this year. But we talked. We talked a few weeks ago about his book. And it's it's a devotional it's very good and so we're we're doing. I'm doing an interview about the book. But we start joking around and we are having a lot of fun because as listeners know he has sparked a lot of dialogue on this conversation about casual azules dining and the perks of casual dining restaurants. He is the holder of a chick-fil-a black card so low so just for a little context and he was playing a chick-fil-a corporate event and instead of an honorarium instead of taking payment for this he told me that he asked the good folks at chick-fil-a corporate the headquarters if he could have chick-fil-a black card which would entitle him to have free Chick-fil-a for for life. All you do is show this car to get as much much chick-fil-a as you want. We start talking about that on on our podcast. In how the you know the dream scenario for US would be to get or a Chili's lease a quivalent of that guard. The good folks at Chili's heard this and delivered to not only Chandler got some Chili Swag but he also so has what color is your card Chandler. It's red red native metal right. Yeah yeah yeah extremely rare talent. It'll it could be a one of what it could be gory. I've talked about his book. And I I bring up the CHICK-FIL-A card and how you know it's helped us here the the chilies car for Chandler. And he told me about the drama between him and Chick-fil-a and how they changed the basically the what he was entitled to with his Blackheart. And it's it was a game changer. Somehow I don't know if I'm supposed to say this or not but this inquiry on today somehow AAA has gotten involved in this and show polay is courting him with free food to try to be an exclusive club holder for them so anyway. Doing the interview Corey and my Corey. Why don't you come on and we'll go hosts the show with with me and Hakko whole episode this morning I got an email from him and he has strep throat last week? We're SOSA prompts. On the Friday show he got sick. Had to text me last minute. Corey said he was willing to power through if we really needed him to. But I told them protect those pipes. My man protect those pipes is important. They are too important to churches around the country on Sunday mornings. We need those pipes crank out some more worship tunes for us. So Corey is is will not be joining US unfortunately but in the game that we're playing that he was that we wrote with the intention of plane there is sort of a hat tip to tyler. There's there there is it. Okay we're GONNA keep the hat tip but it's not gonNa make a lot of sense without that context so we're just going to but you know what there's the inaudible like I said we're not even starting on the rails today this all that I'm not bothering trying to make sense out of it. There's a game. It's it's going to involve part of Corey Story. You and instead of Corey. I suppose a listener. One of our listeners is going to be calling it instead and try to help for that. And they're GONNA have to hope for the best hope I have. Let's say an unusual amount of knowledge about fast casual dining chains. I would be surprised. Never AH listen between between the Popeye's chicken sandwich and you know get named dropped in county. It's been it's been a big big year for fast casual tiny we all about cash. Then I think we thought we were going to at the outset of twenty nineteen on my if we thought we were going to or then. We even want it to Tom. It'll be it's going to be a good we got it we got Greta gerwig coming up. We have the game coming up. Hollis coming up but CAN I. Can I talk to you as real quick before I don't want to Belabor this because we have so much content to get you and you had a really great conversation with Greta a growing tyler. I know we WANNA play pretty much in its entirety because it actually took place out of her pretty special location right. Yeah we we can get into that now but they but they were. The Studio is nice enough to fly me up to is in Concord Massachusetts which is where a little women obviously upset about the book and the movie and we had the conversation. Louisa Louisa May alcott's old home her like it's called the Orchid House now than where she was raised us where she wrote little women.

"So it feels like we're at these curious moment right way there's always hope but also all these despair about the problem of climate change like on the one hand you have new reports all the time warning about the urgent need to swerve around world leaders being told you have to do more and really only some of them being convinced that message but on the other hand there is this unprecedented move but millions of people joining climate strikes around the world with Britain leading the pack think they hear us we will make them heroes been here before the twenty seven years ago. Canadian twelve year olds seven Suzuki gave pretty similar speech to the UN hello. I'm seventies Yuki speaking for ECO the environmental children's organization where a group of twelve and thirteen year olds trying to make a difference. She wasn't talking about climate change specifically the same themes are there. She's talking about Ping afraid to go into the sun and also mass extinction right and there's that same blunt accused the tree time that Greta uses like hey adult. Stop screwing it up for everyone. One younger than you parents should be able to comfort their children by saying everything's going to be all right. It's not the end of the world and we're and we're doing the best we can. Dan But I don't think you can say that to us anymore. Are we even on your list of priorities but how does a teenager to get to that point well. my parents are environmentalists and in the nineteen eighty s a lot of people were talking about environmental problems it was actually a very popular issue and even politicians and leaders were calling themselves. Environmentalists and greenies became became really worried about the environment so I started a club with my friends. Were in grade five. I was nine years old because their selves Echo the Environmental Children's organization innovation and we just started out by having meetings with tea and cookies. We do little fundraisers. We like to make jewelry into foul and raise money book sales. We also raised money to buy water filter for the pen and People Sarawak whose water was polluted because of logging. We're able to do that so this must have taken up like all of your time right yeah. We can't really ten years old but I mean what else are. We going to do a a lot of fun. We're doing these kinds of England actor. Few years. We heard about a huge meeting. That was gonNA take place in Rio de Janeiro. This was going to be a big gathering of heads of state the largest gathering of heads of state ever held they were going to talk about environment and development and really going to set the stage for the twenty first century and we thought thought wow you know there's going to be all these old men sitting around talking about our future so he's how we should go you know with not not too much knowledge about all of the INS and outs of that kind of conference so we fund raiser trae year we appeal out our community for a year to send five of a to real so in Nineteen ninety-two seven wins the Rio which was run by the UN Adad David Suzuki use these he's like noted Canadian environmentalist with He was speaking on the sidelines be started giving up. Hoffy speaking time to seven and other kids from club and after two weeks of the best we first of all became very practice at giving our message in each of us had a five minute speech that we were honing constantly and after two weeks we were invited to speak to the because someone had dropped out of the plenary session so we actually able to rush to the UN and and I was able to give my speech what you do makes me cry at night you grown up so you love us but I challenge you. Please make AAC your actions. Reflect your words. Thank you so you weren't afraid or you didn't feel that pressure in a in a negative way. You just felt steely. I guess absolutely I look back at that beat beat those captured and I can't believe it but I remember feeling so sure of myself and I knew that this was this was the moment that I'd be waiting emporer. I would go ready. I did not feel any pressure or any fear. I just knew exactly what I had to do. I was ready. I guess how much of what was animating mating you at that time was a quite gripping anxiety about the future. Oh yes absolutely I was. I mean when I said in my speech what you do you make me cry at night that was not exaggeration was very sensitive child. I cared deeply about animals and plants. You know kids love Obama the adore animals and as we get older you know we lose that kind of passionate love because we realized that the world is full of sadness. The world is full of grace and not just black and white so we we we have to take care of our families. Eventually we assume responsibilities and so we lose that kind of sensitivity when it comes to injustice and caring for the Earth so the theory goes I guess that being charged gives you these extra license to speak about the state of the punt because obviously they're the ones who have to live on it and just generally the kids are most sensitive live to injustice and it can really get under the skin yeah also you would think that being so young would protect you from having to do too many personal attacks but seven and Greta Greta have both copped it from conservative voices in the media. The climate hysteria movement is not about science. If it were about science it would be led by scientists interests rather than by politicians and the mentally ill Swedish child who is being exploited by herons and by the International. Where is the mass extinction. I I want to know what the everything she said is a lie day. Queues been lied to. She has been terrified. Child abuse reports now in Europe where kids are getting anti anxiety the medication. They believe they're going to die. She is the Greta Effects. He's causing and instilling fear in millions of kids around the world. I heard some people now shine consoles her meltdown speech to the United Nations climate event. We will not let you get away with is waking up and you don't find that Schilling and the attacks that I am seeing I mean they are just taking you know I mean when I met David. Hog this summer are he's one of the Parkland Florida student survivors of the shooting last year and one of the founders of the march for our lives in Washington you know he he was still of course traumatized by the violence but almost equally seems like he was traumatized traumatized by the attacks on his person through social media. people saying that he didn't exist that he was an actor that he was paid. You know these kinds of Those kinds of attacks hurt so much that adults would have that response to children who survived a school shooting. I guess you know do you worry about Greta tune bug in being on the receiving end of this yeah. I I worry about her. Of course you know. I think we all have to worry about Greta. I mean she's already put ourselves out there so incredibly and she's delighted deal adding a response to all these trolls is just amazing. I mean she's dealing with it so well. She's just calling it out. She says wow they're scared. They're afraid of the a young girl so the most interesting thing about talking to seven that I really didn't expect this disappointment right. Basically it springs from this idea that her generation. She's the nine now screwed up. I mean we failed. We we have the problem. Get so much worth earth and so much more difficult for us to address. We did not act after real. How do you explain that failure like. Why would you say that that first attempt at pushed it. I guess you are on the crest of styled. I think that's the question I think that's very important analysis that has to happen happen right now because I feel that there's a real parallel to where we are today and where we were thirty years ago twenty seven years ago we were here were ready. We wanted change. There were people. who were you know everybody was on board? It seems and then we went in the absolute opposite visit direction in the nineties and the two thousand I mean we had the rise of yes we had the rise of the anti-globalization movement and but the the conversation was distracted distracted and while we weren't paying attention because everybody we thought everybody had signed off you know maybe that's why we went in we we. He went opposite way so I think this time. I don't think there's GonNa be a moment where we're we can't keep on protesting where we can't ah on holding our politicians feet to the fire because it's GonNa be hard and it's going to be very hard to achieve the forty five percent percent emissions reduction in less than eleven years. It's going to be very hard for us to achieve a completely carbon neutral nee society by twenty fifty. It's going to be very unpopular is gonna be really hard and we're not going to be able to let off the pressure and that's one of the things that I think we have to really kind of realized from last time and make sure it doesn't change this time. I don't think it's any one group of peoples failure but collectively me we have failed we have failed as a species to make a collective move to stop climate change and we cannot afford to make the take so basically they underestimated the size of the task last time yeah and the strength of the fossil fuel lobby in resisting calls for Change. She also also has this idea that one of the missing pieces of the puzzle then and now is the voice of mothers. This is something that I think has not truly being harnessed yet or or I should rather. I should say unleashed is the power and the passion of parents and especially of mother. You know you think about how much you love your child child or how much mothers love their their child. I mean we would not only die for our children. We would kill for our children and so we're now in a situation where there are entire social infrastructure as human beings is diminishing the options of our children in the future.

"Is about to change very dramatically. If we don't change course very dramatically the sign says we need to do that immediately and the science says that something like all of civilization is at stake if we don't and I look at the world and I see nobody acting as though that's the case and I'm confused and I'm frustrated and I'm angry and I want you to know what I know about the scale of the crisis because I can't understand if you did understand it how you would be doing anything but what I'm doing which is devoting my entire life to this challenge Enj- David. You've met with Greta you talk to her in person. I wonder how is she handling all of this insane attention for her voyage across the Atlantic Meeting Barack Obama you know going to the UN to be the sort of marquee speaker of this climate summit how how does that weigh on a sixteen year old like her. I mean it seems to me like she's tired and it's been a really crazy couple of weeks for her. I think she feels gratified. That all of these people are out with her sort of in speaking in unison about the urgency of crisis but I don't think it's something that she relishes in the one on one interview. I think it was easier for her to kind of focus and have a direct exchange that sort of impression I had of her then was that she was the most teenager like that. I've seen her are in any context. She was self deprecating. She made a few cracks about other people in the room and that kind of thing which is not something I've seen from her in any public look statements but I think that you see the speech that she gave at the UN during the climate summit someone who is a bit being pushed to sort of breaking point. I mean for the first time she was speaking in much more heated tones much more emotionally. I shouldn't be up here. I should be back in school on on the other side of the ocean yet. You all come to US young people for hope. How dare you you have stolen stolen my dreams in my childhood with your empty words yet. I'm one of the ones people are suffering.

"This was a real banner week for President Donald Trump he spent most of it denying buying any wrongdoing then released a White House record of himself doing something that looked quite wrong then he casually praised how in another time the people who complained about his wrongdoing might have been executed with all the whistleblowing and impeachment talk. It's easy to forget that the president also Oh made fun of a sixteen year old girl this week we are in the beginning of a mass extinction and all you can talk about is money and of each economic growth. How dare you responding to a tweet that contained a long clip clip of that speech. President trump seemingly locked tune burke. He tweeted the following. He said she seems like a very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful for future so nice to see the president did and it wasn't just him. Laura Ingraham at Fox News compared Greta Timberg two children of the corn. I can't wait for Stephen King. Sequel children of the climate and guests on another Fox News show just well but none none of that matters because the climate hysteria movement is not about science. If it were about science it would be led by scientists rather than by politicians and the mentally ill Swedish this child who is being exploited by parents and by the international so if you a person who doesn't make fun of children find yourself wondering what could make all of these grown people want to dunk on a kid David Wallace Wells has a theory. She is the most powerful teenager living on the planet today. David wrote about Glenda for a New York magazine where he's an editor. She's a Swedish teenager. She's sixteen years old last August. When she was is just fifteen. She decided to start a climate strike outside the Swedish parliament. I sit here every Friday. I am not a scientist. I don't have the proper education I'm only a messenger and in relatively short order became one of the the faces of a kind of exploding global movement of teens specifically but sort of young people more generally protesting in various sways the inaction of the global community of business people and Policy Leaders in combating what this generation Asian I think rightly sees as the existential challenge of climate change. How does this become her mission in life so early in life. Basically Greta came home from school having learned about climate change at the age the eight or nine they showed us films and pictures and I just I just thought it was very worrying. I was very scared of it. I I saw that it was very strange that there was such an existential threat that would send our existence and I'll civilization and yet that wasn't awesome first priority and starting at about age eleven. Greta fell into a deep depression. I stopped talking and I stopped eating in two months. I lost about ten kilos weight later on. I was diagnosed with aspects of syndrome mm-hmm. OCD selective news and a family friend who I spoke to a few weeks ago told me that her father who is a sort of close. The presence in her life nursed her back to health the person said one Yuki at a time so that was just a few years ago I mean but it was a period of time that was was protracted enough that it actually at least according to Greta had a meaningful impact on her physical health. I mean one of the things that really makes her. Stand out is that while she is sixteen she actually looks quite a bit younger than that and I think that's one of the keys to her power a rhetorical powers that she's speaking with the wisdom of an informed teenager but sort of through the figure of a wise child that makes him different that makes you think differently and especially in such a big crisis like this when we need to think outside the folks we need to think outside our current system they we need people who think outside the box and who aren't like everyone else she basically wasn't an real activist until last August when she started school strike in in Stockholm and at the time you know she was fifteen. She basically didn't have any friends. She was unhappy. She felt socially isolated uncomfortable around other people and it really was a kind kind of crusade that she was launching the kind of thing that you know occasionally you see on social media somebody making a kind of noble protests but you don't necessarily assume that it's going going to amount to much and this really took off in. December she was giving a speech at a UN climate climate conference that sort of went especially viral the year two thousand and seventy eight. I will celebrate my seventy fifth birthday. If I have children maybe they will spend the day with me. Maybe they will ask me about you. Maybe they will ask why you didn't do anything while there still was time to act you say you love your children above all else and yet you're stealing their their future in front of their very is until you start focusing on what needs to be done rather than what is politically logistically possible there is no hope and by March she had led a global climate strike in which about one and a half million people marched in the streets around the world everywhere from Africa to Asia to the US and all throughout Europe. She just turned sixteen of course she wasn't done. She continued attended speaking. She gave a series of speeches she gave one notable one at Davos but her profile seem to like move up an additional notch beyond just the a person who had inspired a global school strike numbering in the millions when she announced that she would be coming to this. UN Summit in New York and that she would be doing so by boat. I might feel seasick and it's not going to be comfortable but that I can live with and if it's really hard I just have to think thank me for two weeks. Then I can go back to as usual showed people on the left that some of these choices that we thought were impossible to make where or at least for some people like her possible to make that one could travel across the Atlantic without imposing a carbon footprint on the world it also really irritated people on the right who who took it as a kind of trolling and took that as the opportunity to really cut into her none of the other moments in her trajectory really produced much pushback and the boat trip really changed that and made her kind of lightning rod for both sides of the of the issue and I think that's ultimately only elevated her stature more. I think she is being manipulated. I think she's been exploited. I think she's being pushed to the forefront of a very misanthropic depressing form of the politics of fear. I think that's bad for her because we know that she is rather mentally franchise a child y'all go and I think it's bad for political debate because the end result is that anyone raises any criticisms of this campaign is shouted routed down as someone who hates children and who hates Greta them book. It's become one of the themes of this conversation that she is being stage managed by people around her in general my experience with those people has been there just protective over her because she's quite fragile. She's uncomfortable in crowds. She is not really happy being the center of attention in general and and while she feels that there's sort of an urgent need to continue speaking. It's not easy for her and again. She's just a teenager. I think it's easy to look at a teenager who struck a chord it and like the march for our lives comes to mind as well and say like Oh these kids are smart and he speaks truth to power and they're good social media and they built an audience but it sounds sounds like that's not quite the case with Greta is it is it just her words and her image that so struck a chord with the entire planet in it or is it some sort of greater social media savvy and media prowess or something like that well. She actually was inspired by the Parkland kids. That's why she went out on strike for the first time so there is a kind of a continuity there it started with a couple of us in the United States and Hughes to go to school because fiscal shootings and then someone I knew said what if silver did that before. I also do think that she is pretty savvy. On Social Media I think almost anyone as a teenager now is but she wrote a series of posts about her own disabilities and the way that they were being used to target her among right wing critics that was also. I think quite powerful but in general I think that those factors are less central to understanding exactly what's happening here. Then the simple fact that at the science of climate change is terrifying and there are those people who are sort of activists and advocates who take that science nine seriously and talk about it in urgent honest terms but they're also they're activists and so to the world. They seem like you know maybe a little hysterical Americal. Maybe a little alarmist. Greta is so cool. Why are we not reducing our emissions. Why are they in fact still increasing our we knowingly causing mass extension. Are We evil. No of course not people keep doing what they do because the vast majority doesn't have a clue about the actual the consequences of our everyday life her affect is always so flat and direct that it really does seem like she's just presenting doing the incredibly harrowing facts of the matter to the public and I think there's something powerful about that. I think that that is the scale of the the crisis that we're facing and just being direct about. It is incredibly eye. Opening does Greta any policy proposals. Did she endorse any particular ideas that the UN this week I think for the most part she's done incredibly savvy. Job Of avoiding making particular policy asks you know in the climate world once you get into particular agendas or particular programs. They're always going to be some people who have objections. Do you think you're being unreasonable. I think you're focusing on the wrong thing. At the moment you know two big areas of disagreement on the climate world are about the fate of nuclear power and of of what's called carbon capture technology which could allow us to take carbon out of the atmosphere but which activists see as sort of moral hazard because it'll encourage fossil fuel businesses to keep operating you know she hasn't taken a position on those things exactly. She's made some gestures about them but in general just saying very clearly I read the the science. The science says.
