"hefner" Discussed on Two Broads Talking Politics

"Listen i everyone. I am and this is vote. Her in a voter in is the collaboration between to prods talking politics now too broad stocking politics live with video and author rebecca save. Who is the author of a couple of books including vote her in your guide to electing our first woman president. We are coming to u. sixteen hours before. The inauguration of joe biden is president and come harris vice-president. I have been like literally dancing around my house all day about this so i am going to turn it over now to rebecca who will introduce our guest rebecca. Mike kelly and yeah. I think we've all been dancing around one of my girlfriends to text earlier. She said. I can't tell you how excited i am. You know. it's a remarkable occasionally really important the cage. Very serious one Before introduced i guess. I just want to acknowledge the fact that at least some of us are able to watch the president elect and the vice president-elect this evening at this candle-lighting memorial to the covert victims and liege men in thinking about everybody as we go forward but in terms of thinking about everybody what we have always focused on forces on the matter of women and women's leadership and women's policy matters and we thought what better time than this evening as they take off tomorrow to take a look at the federal policy and legislative agenda that various organizations are proposing and at the biden harris administration is contemplating and lo and behold. We should have bought lottery tickets or something This afternoon the Biden harris administration announced a new admission. That they will form on on gender issues in gender policy with very high level leadership. Really serious people and our guest is going to get into a whole lot more. Visit wanna tell you that a name. That's probably familiar to many of you. Christie hefner who has been a strong an influential women's vocal advocate since the mid nineteen seventies at the national women's political caucus and is presently among other things a board member of the center for american progress action fund and in that capacity. She really has kept up to speed and contributed of course to the development of caps. Women's issues agenda so we are so glad that christie's here It's a tree always to be with girlfriends and We won't talk about how many years. But that's something. I'd say almost every time and At christie welcome. And if you would Just begin by sharing with us in our listeners. Like you know your sense of the context in which we're thinking about these issues. Well thank you very much. Rebecca kelly for inviting me on such an auspicious moment. So it's an honor to be having this conversation. On the eve of the inauguration i am reminded of the fact that as has been expressed in thinking about a variety of aspects of life from health and medicine to education. This pandemic has really magnified issues. That were there any way and in some cases. Which is why i am optimistic. Is i think. Expediting the movement forward to addressing those issues and in the case of any organization thinking about how to deal with this truly unprecedented global pandemic. the first instinct is just to to respond. You know to try and figure out what to do in the moment and that's usually followed by a sense of full. How do we recover. But the third phase i think is about. How do we build resilience for the future. And i think it's that ladder piece that is going to create the opportunity for an administration with as you noted rebecca in the formation of the commission the inclination and the people power to act on that to actually build the kinds of changes that will not only address the grievous problems at the pandemic has caused in terms of the loss of women in the workplace in terms of the impossibility of the lack of availability of childcare but the structural problems that were there before and that we could use this moment to actually address so visit or on the trucks for certain. There's something in these commissions that sometimes causes me doubt. But i think that as you've been looking at that kind of work as you've done it at cap how have you seen that sort of format take shape where it really does have an impact. What would you be whispering in the ear of kamala harris about it. If you were there doing that will candidly. One of the things that gives me a great hope. Is that Lead public policy economists on the project a decade ago that we did at cap which was called a woman's nation which was the first analysis of the status of women in america since eleanor roosevelt had chaired the commission on the status of women during the kennedy administration and it was very much prompted by the fact that women were now more than fifty percent of the workforce. And so what. What did we need to do to fully empower women's participation in the workforce to create economic growth for the country. What i was referencing as my one of my points of hopefulness is that the woman at calf who i worked very closely with on it was heather. Boucher and heather is the senior economic adviser to the biden harris administration. It's he comes to the administration with a deep understanding of these issues. A deep commitment to them an economist. Keen i for measuring impact. And not thinking of this as anything. That feels good. We should do but we need to put our resources behind the things. That will really improve. The quality of women's lives and families lives and our communities and therefore our nation and all of the background of the work that was done a decade ago whether it was around affordable childcare or around paid leave or a round of the need to address the problems of lack of certainty and scheduling or on minimum wage..

"Americans remain a morally serious people at least in our quickness to condemn each other's Hitler's for various misdeeds we are clearly not as concerned with moral consistency. For example, we demand that churches close to stop the spread of Covid Not Walmart's bars or casinos. We protest police violence with acts of violence we celebrate. Hugh. Hefner. Has Some great liberator of women and just weeks after his death condemned Harvey Weinstein we say character counts but only when it's in office not hours and then last week after three plus years of the Hashtag to. Movement has protested the objectification and abuse of women the most objectify Song in history one that reduces women's nothing more than their private parts hit number one on the charts now couldn't possibly share the lyrics of this song any of them and please don't look them up essentially to women rapper. She performed the song repeatedly call themselves prostitutes though not using that word and bag men to treat them as such by any definition legal or otherwise America's most popular song right now and the video that accompanies it can only be called pornography and it's Available everywhere to anyone of any age. Also last week Netflix announced a new film to be carried on its platform called cuties. It's a French film about an eleven year old Muslim girl who liberates herself from the oppressive morality of her family into religion by joining an all girl dance crew, the image Netflix's used to advertise the film on social media featured a group of preteen girls and sexually suggestive poses. The trailer featured this dance crew of young girls working among other sexually suggestive dance moves back in nineteen sixty, four Supreme Court justice. Potter Stewart's famously said that though he could not give a precise definition of pornography quote I know when I see it well, thankfully, the public outcry to the movie poster was loud enough, consistent, enough, and incredulous enough that what the public saw was clearly child pornography response Netflix's apologized and pulled the ad. But so far I've decided not to pull the movie itself as one facebook mean put it. If conspiracy theorists needed AMMO that government and media elites are behind some international pedophile ring net flicks just gave it to them as morally monstrous is. Both of these cultural artifacts are they do reveal a great deal about the society that could produce them one that considers self determination self actualization and absolute freedom from any restraint as among the highest human goods such a view emerges only when you reject the idea that the universe is created an ordered for some predetermined purposes intern such a society embraces a profoundly tragic misunderstanding, not only about what's right and wrong but of what it means to be humid of what freedom truly is often teach this important truth using an analogy with my. Students imagine that I'm an airplane pilot and feeling quite free one day I decided I don't WanNa, fly my plan I want to drive my plane. So I go to the end of the runway and I turn left who's GonNa stop me I'm a seven forty seven I'm cruising down the road and then I decide I want to see pike's peak. So I start up the curvy winding mountain drive and, of course, get stuck he see my expression of freedom actually could limit my freedom if I want to see pike's peak in a plane I shouldn't drive it there. I, should fly it because a plane is most free not when I drive it but when I fly why? Because that's what it was designed for the same is true of human sexuality. We're not most free when we do whatever we want, we're free when we are who God created us to be a view of freedom that denies accountability or consequences will only always enslave us to our own passions. This is what Paul wrote in Romans six. Do you not know that if you yield yourself to anyone as Obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one whom you obey either of Sen which leads to death or of Obedience, which leads to righteousness. See the very beginning the sexual revolution promised the wrong kind of freedom what it delivered instead by reimagining not only morality but we fundamentally ours human beings was only slavery in fact women and children are disproportionately the victims of these bad ideas are to most recent cultural artifacts just retail those same lies and it's no accident that one is aimed at women and the other children

The Making of an Instagram Tiny House Influencer with Brent Heavener

"Right I'm here with Brent Hefner Brent grew up with a family whose pretty creative sovereign minded, and who are always trying to have an influence where they're at. Brent believes that it was this love for creativity and influence that has kept him with in the tiny House Movement for a number of years creating content, writing a book and featuring incredible tiny house creatives. He now uses influence to bring the community together Brenan hefner welcome to the show. Even it's going to be here man. Great to have you so. Hoping you could just kind of take me back to the beginning of how this all started for you Your love of tiny houses starting the instagram account. Tell me tell me that story. Absolutely. Well. It started back man I was about fourteen fifteen years old and I did a lot of. A lot of social media blogging and marketing as a hobby as a young teenager and had a lot of friends that were doing it online and my dad one day sent me an email with the container house. It was a decis shipping container, which you've been transformed into a home and I'd never seen that I don't think a lot of people. My Age might generations It wasn't super super popular and I took a look at that and I was like Oh my goodness this is incredible. So. Sparked something in me and I started researching more into it and I found out that there wasn't a good place online for people to find inspiration that but there wasn't like A. Solid instagram account that really puts content. There wasn't a twitter account that posting quality great blogs I'm sure yours was around that time and there were like awesome websites but as far as like. Very, very instant immediate of content on media. I didn't find anything. So I was like you don't let me start something on twitter just as a passion project like homes that I love that brought me alive. So I started posting about it and and as you seen it out to friends and kind of using. Social Media Techniques today with it blew up, and then it went to instagram and out from there I've just been doing a featuring a lot of different people wanNA I've done some different short films on tiny houses and I. May Get into this that I wrote a book got published by paying around. House. Last year and I've just really cool stuff. I'm so thankful and just so blessed. So. About. When when is this that you start doing this on twitter and Instagram Sure This was about. Twenty. Twenty to thirteen maybe. Okay. That's pretty early on. In terms of like online tiny house stuff. Yeah. Yeah. There wasn't a lot going on at that. At that point I think really online like there were handful of blogs and then like tiny house blog and tiny house talk. Yes. House design three very good websites but your but. It's interesting that you know. You know at that point you were you were thirteen fourteen you said yeah, I was like, yeah run fourteen I think and I think it's it's so interesting because like You thought to go to social media first and say like, where's the content about this topic whereas like? You know other people other generations might be like, Oh, I wanNA find a website I wanNA find a book. So I think that's really cool that you just went to the place that you wanted to see the content and then couldn't find it. Exactly, exactly, and it started off as a passion project and this is something. I've started some different small businesses and I'm really into like creativity in startups and stuff like that. So one thing that I always like a good foundation is to always start something that you're super passionate about as most people they wanNA, they wanna you know figure out they WANNA make and figure out how to how to you know love it. Instead I say forget what you love and if you're gonNA, make money from it right so It's like it was something that I really love in that. That was a really healthy beginning. Nice. When did you start being able to actually make money from from it? Well money's never really. I I kind of use that statement. I guess. As as an overview everything by. Money's never really driven it in never been a huge part of it. It's always been content and inspiration creativity. But of course, I was able to write this book and that was that was a blessing. So that's really been a you know the main. Monetization is far as a apart from a helping out brands here and there doing doing advertising you're in there, but it's it's mainly just the creativity and passion that drives it in the people see that and they're like A. You know I, want I wanNA do something with that I pretty healthy foundation a pretty solid one to work from

Bored? Games!

"A lot of playing board games these days and that's pretty fitting human making board games for a long time like a long longtime seven thousand years or more for a bit of historical context. We stopped hunter-gathering and settled down to be farmers about ten thousand years ago rather than try to cram seven thousand years in six occupied continents worth of history into a half hour podcast. I'll hit some of the high points. Especially the less well-known once the earliest gaming pieces ever found are forty nine. Small carved painted stones found a five thousand year old burial mound in southeast Turkey. Similar pieces have been found in Syria and Iraq and seemed to point devoid games originating in the Fertile Crescent. You remember the Fertile Crescent from the first week of world history class. It's the same region discovered alcohol invented papyrus and made calendars all of which you need. If you're hosting game night other early dice games were created by painting a single side of a flat. Stick these sticks would be tossed at once and that would be your role Mesopotamia. Dice were made from a variety of materials including carved knuckle bones would painted stones and turtle shells. No wonder folks used to say roll them bones dice from the Roman era. Looks like the six sided die. We use today though. Some of them had their corners. Cut off to be able to reach a higher number not unlike dungeons and dragons dice. Imagine excavating a distant Roman out host and finding a D twenty serious cricket board games became popular among the Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt. And that shouldn't surprise. That board games were a bigger part of life for upper class people since they have both money for entertainment and time to play. Even before the first dynasty Egypt loved a game called Senate. It's even seen on. The walls of tombs and copies of the game are buried with noble people. Ancient Egyptians were strong believers in the concept of fate. And that your luck in the game of Senate meant that you were under the protection of the major gods of the Pantheon raw toe to toe Cyrus. The significance of the game is clear. The game play not as clear. Historians have made educated guesses as to the rules more on that later and Board Game. Companies have used those guesses as a jumping off place to make modern versions. Four Games also became tied into religious beliefs. One such game was Mahan played around three thousand. B C e Mahan was a protective God depicted as a snake with coils around the Sun God raw during his journey through the night the game and the God became intertwined. Tim Kendall and ancient Egyptian historian believes that it's not possible to know for sure with the information we have available whether the game was inspired by an existing deity or the Deity was inspired by the game. Many people think backgammon is the longest plate of all the board games with evidence that it existed around two thousand B C but there is an extant game. That is a little bit older. Relatively speaking the royal game of for the game gets its name from being found in the royal tombs of in Iraq. There was also a set found in Pharaoh. Tutankhamun tune the game. Play is simple but very familiar. You're trying to get all of your pieces around the board first thumping off your opponent's pieces along the way again. Proving there's nothing new under the Sun. The royal game of herb was played with four sided or tetrahedral dice. A D Four for the tabletop games out there. Even though the game's over four thousand years old amazingly we found a copy of the rules Irving Finkel the British museum deciphered cuneiform tablet and discovered. It was the rules for the Royal Game of Earth. He then saw a photograph of a nearly identical board game being played in modern India. That makes the Royal Game of Earth. The longest played game in history and there is a great video of Irving Finkel. Who has ever so pleasantly mad teaching youtuber or Tom Scott how to play Lincoln the show notes and a little clip right here. Because I just couldn't help myself. All sorts of evidence has come to live so that we know how this game was played and we can play it now with a great deal of excitement. Sometimes it brings out violence. Come Times it brings out savagery. I have to say that this so we've decided to bring in a member of the public. I can't remember the name on Tom. Scott I make videos about science technology in the world. Who's never paid this game before? I have never played this game before. I'm Gandhi swift overview of the walls. Hope he masses and I'm getting to play of course play gently at first because I don't say hi to hang I'm to wipe the floor with it wouldn't do it for me even discovered these rules and I'll throw in his mind. Game listing whitlow. Marta is similar to that question of modern. There were some minor differences s today. Each player has fifteen checkers and uses six sided dice to be the first to bear off. All of one's checkers. I confess that I am reading that. From a website verbatim. I know less about that. Yemen do cricket. Backgammon had a renewed surge of popularity in the nineteen sixties which is held longtime for a comeback. Thanks in part to the charisma of Prince Alexis. Obolensky the father of modern backgammon cigarette liquor and car. Companies began to sponsor tournaments and Hugh Hefner held backgammon parties at the Playboy Mansion. At the same time that the Romans were playing Latin backgammon. The Chinese were play. We she or you may have heard of it. Go Que- she may even predate the game of twelve markings and the royal game of Earth. According to legend which has a pesky habit of morphing into history quay g was created by the ancient Chinese. Emperor Yell to teach his son on Ju discipline. Concentration and balance the popularity of wage e grew throughout Eastern Asia especially in Japan. Which is where the name go comes from another ancient game which is still out there and a favourite of nearly every household in my family is the African game of Mangala in our modern parlance. Munkala refers to a specific game. But the name actually belongs to an entire genre of games a genre eight hundred traditional games strong. This family of Board Games is played around. The world is referred to as Sewing Games S. O. W. I N. G. Devotes the way that you pick up and drop the stones playing pieces like you were sowing seeds in the ground. The word Mukalla comes from the Arabic Nicola to move most one college games share a common structure where each player has gained pieces in divots on the board and moves them to capture their opponent's pieces leading them to also be called count and capture games. The boards can be wooden clay even just little holes in the dirt playing pieces of everything from seeds. Stones shells anything near at hand that fits in the holes. The earliest evidence of the game are fragments of pottery. Board found in Eritrea dated to the sixth century CE. Though if the games were played with seeds on wooden boards or pebbles in divots in the dirt the game could be even older. The absence of evidence is not evidence of absence after all that particular logical fallacy is called argument from ignorance at ignorant him. And it's not a good look now. We go to the land of ice and snow of the Midnight Sun. Where the hot springs flow Scandinavians played chess. Like game called. Nevin tough at least as early as four hundred see. I'm sure my clever listeners haven't forgotten that. Viking refers to the raids undertaken by a small portion of the population themselves called Viking US meaning kings table noth- Atoll was a war strategy game. The kings objective was to escape to the edge of the board while the opponents laurel objective was to capture him. The attacking force had the natural advantage at the start of each game. Perhaps mimicking a cultural mindset of a small group being victorious against a larger force like say a few boats full of Viking attacks against the army of an English King Scandinavians spread the game to Ireland Britain and Wales through. Let's call it. Unexpected cultural exchange archaeologists have also discovered that it was popular as far to the east as Ukraine.

And I don't see any other available for many other Jason Room so this would have to be at Wondering whether you think my initial thought maybe to run up to the attic up here around than down or he could go right into the the Vanity there right through the vanity. I got I bought. I bought ever since You know you had your your day couple. I guess it was a year ago or so I bought one of those over Mount Todos and my God my life has never been better warn delightful pulsating action in the news area cleaning up so nice. It's a well worth it. Yeah it is the It's the gift that keeps giving and You know to come full circle with the bathrobe. I told you when you're on that toilet man know what I'm saying is at my theories is all the time like even when I was poor now when I was born. I was poor for long periods of time. I wouldn't buy a good bottle of wine because I couldn't tell dern twin eight dollar bottle of wine in a eighty dollars bottle of wine but I bought good tools. Sure as those you use them every day right you know what I mean and I would buy a good baseball Mitt. I wouldn't buy Vinyl Baseball mid for twenty two bucks. I'd Buy Fifty Three Dollar Baseball Mitt even though that was a big ticket item for me when I was four. I still realize you're gonNA use this for the rest of your life. You know or set a boots. Get a good setup. It's you know so the thing about the day. The thing about the bathrobe is you can use every day twice a day for your rest of. Your Life. You're not gonNA wear it out so I can go anywhere so the thing where people go. Well I don't know if I've got four hundred bucks to spend on whatever you do. If it was an a nicholas squat it pay for itself in a year and a half. I mean think about the amount of toilet paper. You're saving using it in probably three years of toilet paper. That's four hundred bucks isn't it? I guess it is especially all the gouging going on a new scout. Don't gouge the news all right. I like I like the way pronounce Amos Montreal. Well it's from France ideologue that all right so I where do you WanNa put the plug for this thing? I'm with stromer in that. Going up to the attic is always nice. The thing about dropping down through the Attic. You go to the top plate to drill through the top plate the rafters coming down at a steep angle probably got birds notch birds peak nachos or something to get into that tough to get into that. Yeah off to get into that in. And it's a play on the top. And then you have double hawking through the base. It's a pain in the ass while stromer you are your game you know. I'm hopped up on the Lord. It's Easter almost. Turn the camera around prompter Bryant. There I got an entire network of people. Here help middle aged with a headset on something weird on her belt. You know what's on her. That's right relatively attractive makeup. Gal that's given problems and there's scrolling talk to you about her dog a lot scrolling. Yeah yes there's double double tap late in a fire block in the middle of the wall. It is tough to fish. And you're not going to be able to drop when does extend obits through the top. There's no room because of the rafters and okay so I'm was stromer. Let's drop down now. You have that cabinet right there. The cabinet an existing plug or probably underneath the fire blocks. You don't have to contend with the fire block which you're going to do is open. The cabinet put an access hole in the side of the Cabinet. And Fish your way through the drywall and up. You can tie into that Piggyback on that Outlet Look okay You have to look out for his. The back splash at you. Don't mess with it. Looks like it's right on the DRYWALL. So be careful coming up that you don't start whacking from the back and push that that back splash off but in gone with now. There's there's a way to do this. That is a little bit of a shortcut but not too shabby and I did it with my own. By Day I had an outlet. It was on the other side of a wall. It was right there. The cordwood reach it but it couldn't reach it because I couldn't go through the wall. I was talking and thinking about Poland stuff through the wall and realize their studs there and Blah Blah Blah on. I just went screw it. The cord is Cords about a quarter inch deck. I literally just cut. The cord drilled a hole through the wall fished accord literally through the wall Put it back in worked at all. I didn't use wire nuts. Ii used a shrink stuff like the rubber plastic shrink stuff. Put everything back together. Put the big shrink wrap over the top of it heated it up. You know shrunk down These are sleeves. These are like rubber sleeves. For putting the wires insulated wires inside all plugged it and it just goes right through the wall and just in my office. It doesn't really doesn't really matter it's done. So here's what I would do. I would fish up I would tie in. I would come down I would run the VX or the Biak's we screw it up. And Gary is fixed it for me. I would do a surface mount box in the cab and then I would cut the cord. Make your little five sixteenths hole in the side lower lower. Not The bottom or the toe kick was but bottom back. The cabinet fish at through reconnect the cord properly. And just plug it in. You see that you just see the cord would just be going into the cabinet and going through the side of it like much right because if you have a box with a plate you're going to see the plug play into the side of the cabinet. So I think to your point you the cord disappears and you don't even notice it. That's a good call. Yeah well it. Kinda saves you the box in the side of the cabinet and cutting it all out and doing this and that you could do it You could do it either way. You gotTa have. Gif I though on that on that day put the guy and I don't know. Get a certified electrician to do it. It safer but It's pretty straightforward. I did it and I think you can. You can make it work. That's how I would do it now. I know a lot of people are like Kinda weird like I don't want to cut the cord but I duNno. Cut The cord and mend it properly and do it. So you don't see it and plug it in the cabinet and all it's GonNa look like is the core just going. I don't know show us the picture game and are again at the court's GonNa go foot and just go just died through the cabinet like anything. No I'll get in underneath. I got another question here but an email one and justice. Get Ed this is from Nelson in Philly. Hey guys I bought a family buddy. Three family apartment building in Philadelphia a couple of years ago at have been slowly renovating it. Things are going well and it's now time to replace the roof which is about fifteen years old is a flat roof and by the looks of it there are at least two to three layers of previous roofing material. Already layered up there. My question is is it necessary to remove the previous layers of roofing before I put on the new roof or will it be okay laying the new one on top of the old? I'm not too worried about the weight. The building is fairly narrow. We sister'd a lot of the joists under the roof. Decking when we replace the third floor ceiling the river I'm leaning towards says he can install vents so we can breathe and any moisture that gets in there can escape. Get IT ON. Keep doing your thing. Well their rules about roofing and the rule is you can add a third. But you can't add a fourth and that's an so cow. I don't know if they've updated or changed it. But that's Kinda how the roofing world works traditionally. You put one roof on. You live with it. You put another roof over the roof. You live with it. You go to a third rove and then when it comes time to the fourth roof you you strip the roast. Yeah I understand what he's talking about about Vance. Why would they go to the trouble of doing Vance when they could just demo everything and do it right the first time right now? Well tell me what you mean. Well I mean he said the Roofer would put Vance and somewhere what? Why when you just just start over. It just seems like you're trying to cut you know. Throw good money after bad with that. Step well why start how to start over versus Vance. Sounds like he's doing a cop. He's compensating for getting venting under this whole system. Instead of just redoing the whole roof. Y- I'm not. I'M NOT SURE. How the vents factor and let's just say you`re. Roofer can do them fine. I'm not sure why there weren't vents. Originally or how the vents work for you but all this focus on the idea of roofing. It's a flat roof. Scotto hair pits. It looks to be fair to midland shape but okay look Obviously the best way to do anything is to strip whatever was there and then do it. It's sort of like saying the best way the best paint job you could get on. Your car is to strip it down to the bare metal and then paint it. It's also time time consuming and more expensive so then the question is what are you doing with your car. You're going to enter it in a show or you just want a different color to drive around the block and and so you're not you know this isn't David Geffen's boat. This is your roof. I I think if the guy can do it without stripping it I would do it So I I would go that route. 'cause stripping it is not only you know costly but it's a God damn mess. 'cause you're stripping three roofs off of there so see what he can do. There's also coding. I you know what you see you could coat what you have there versus rolling out or torch down or whatever it is. We're talking about but I I would say in this particular case. Go over.

Good news: Almost half of Minnesota's power is now carbon free

"Looking for some good news. Almost half of Minnesota's electric power is now carbon-free I'm NPR. Chief Meteorologist Paul. Hefner here with climate a new report card says Minnesota is rapidly reducing greenhouse gas emissions from electric power. Twenty-five percent of Minnesota's electric power came from renewables in twenty nineteen and forty nine percent of power generation was carbon free when you include Nuclear Power Greg. Mass is the executive director of clean energy economy. Minnesota we'll come back to climate cast. Greg thank you for having me Paul. Okay this is a big report with a lot of numbers right so if you had to pick one number from this report. What's that number? I think you hit on it right at the top Paul. And that's that nearly half of Minnesota's power came from Zero Carbon Energy sources in twenty nineteen so overall power sector emissions are really a success story in Minnesota when it comes to climate thirty seven percent is how much they've been reduced since two thousand five. How do we replicate that success in the transportation sector is that really the next big opportunity for Minnesota because it is the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions in our state? We know that by replicating the success that we've seen in our electricity or the power sector and the connectedness that are transportation sector has to electricity in the form of battery electric vehicles and plug in hybrid. Electric vehicles with Paulson leadership in continued initiatives. We've already seen since two thousand fifteen sales of battery. Electric vehicles have increased almost six hundred ninety percent and sales of plug in hybrid. Electric vehicles have increased two hundred percent so today there's currently thirteen thousand electric vehicles and plug in hybrid electric vehicles on Minnesota's roads. And we know that we can go. Further and faster with strong policies to really achieve the vision for the transportation sector where the State is looking at having twenty percent of. Evt's by twenty thirty in that area. Greg there was always that argument. That if you reduce greenhouse gas emissions you're going to stifle economic growth. What can we say about Minnesota's economic progress as we're making this transition to clean energy the area that really helps to measure this is what we refer to as energy productivity and this year's factsheet has shown that we have since two thousand ten grown our state's Gross Domestic Product by twenty four percent where power consumption over that same time period has only growing two percent and so when we measure energy productivity? Were looking at. How much can we grow our economy and produce more products and services while at the same time? We're using the same or less energy. And Minnesota's done an excellent job in doing that where we have now boosted overall energy productivity by twenty two percent and. That's really remarkable. And we've seen a boom in jobs. Where do the numbers stand with clean energy jobs in Minnesota? Today there's over sixty one thousand MINNESOTANS who work in our energy efficiency and renewable energy sector and those jobs are growing two and a half times faster than all other sectors of Minnesota's economy in the environment were into damn wondering. Are we seeing any legislative or other efforts planned in Minnesota this year? That are now delayed. I think we're going to have to continue to see how things play out through the remainder of this legislative session. But certainly we're continuing to work with policy makers as they are evaluating several important opportunities for advancing energy efficiency and clean energy as our economy recovers from the disruption and certainly the hardship that has already been caused by the corona virus pandemic clean energy should be prioritized to spur job creation and also improve the resiliency of

What Else Did Shel Silverstein Write?

"Decades ago in the evenings around closing time a man with a very bald head and a very dark beard used to come sloping into the mysterious bookshop in New York City. His shoulders hunched is the warding off a perpetual cold wind. The proprietor auto pens ler had come to expect these visits indeed. He looked forward to them. He would close up the shop and guide the man back to his. Inner Sanctum. A book lined study with floor-to-ceiling shelves there the bearded man would deliver a Sheaf of papers containing a new freshly penned mystery story to be added to the theology. That Pencil publishing the writer refused to take any money for his efforts. Even though pens lawyer was paying well. He craved compensation. His eyes gleamed as pennsly- slid his payment across the desk between them. It was a stack of used books containing dozens of stories written in the mystery genre later that night he would devour them one by one but first pens lawyer and the bearded man would talk and talk. They talked about books about life. Auto pens layer was just recovering from a devastating break-up and so they spoke about battling in a recent phone interview for this article. Pennsly- remembered that at a certain juncture. His guests said something so piercingly insightful and eloquent about the break up that it took his breath away Henseler said I wish I could remember what he said but I failed to write it down what I do remember. Is that when I expressed my amazement at his facility with words he just shrugged and said I guess that's why they call me a poet. He could've added among many other things because our bald and bearded man was Shel Silverstein a true renaissance man. Of course many of us know him as the author and illustrator of the giving tree a light in the attic and where the sidewalk ends among many of the other wildly successful books that he wrote Andrew for children. That's only the tip of the proverbial Iceberg Silverstein also drew cartoons and wrote plays for adults and penned numerous songs especially country songs. In fact he won. Two grammys for song. Writing one of them for the Johnny Cash. Hit A boy named Sue Sheldon Allen. Shel Silverstein was born into a Jewish family in Chicago in nineteen thirty his father and a bakery which only began to thrive in the wake of the Great Depression. After high school. Shell spent some time studying at the Art Institute of Chicago and later Roosevelt University but was drafted into the US army serving in Korea and Japan. Silverstein began working for the military periodical. Stars and Stripes and it was there that he began regularly publishing his idiosyncratic cartoons after his military service Silverstein got a job as a cartoonist. For the fledgling magazine. Playboy for his playboy gig. He traveled the world sending cartoon dispatches from Bahrein wide in nineteen sixty three Silverstein. Met Book Editor Ursula Nordstrom. Who prodded him into writing books for Children? And that same year he wrote the giving tree a book about the nature of Altruism and selfishness there would become his most famous and popular work his sense of the absurd and the whimsical cartoon line drawings that illustrated this and all of his books would become his hallmarks in deceptively simple language. His exploration of the innocence and imagination of childhood made him one of the most celebrated and widely read authors for generations of children and adults like Auto Penn's lair recall Silverstein telling him that he spent a year living at the playboy mansion as a guest of Hugh Hefner. It was there that he met Susan Hastings with whom he had daughter named Shoshana in nineteen seventy tragically. Susan died in nineteen seventy five and two. Shana passed away. Unexpectedly after cerebral aneurysm. In one thousand nine hundred two by many accounts her death utterly devastated Silverstein in Nineteen eighty-four. He had a son named Matthew with Sarah Spencer. According to Pens Ler Silverstein was a deeply eccentric. Man Pennzoil told us for instance. It wasn't unusual for him to be having dinner in a restaurant with a group of friends and then suddenly announced that he was done. Get up take a taxi to the airport and flight of Chicago or Los Angeles or Florida or wherever he felt like going on the spur of the moment shel. Silverstein died of a heart attack in nineteen ninety nine at the age of just sixty eight but in story song and image. He left behind a remarkably prolific artistic record.

Faith and Parenting in 2020: Intimacy and Marriage

"Wants US train up our children in his way of life you know impress on them. Your children talk to them as you sit at home when you walk along the road when you lie down when you get up we read this in Deuteronomy read this throughout Biblical truth one. One of the most important areas to talk to our kids about lance is sex. Sex is a way of expressing love between husband and wife. This is made plain in Paul's pissing Fijian's as we read and five husbands love. Your Wives Justice Christ also loved the Church and gave himself for her that he should that she should should be holy and without blemish so husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. For this reason it man shall leave his father and mother and joined to his wife and the two shall become one flesh and in the Timothy. We read young leader of the Church. As Paul's talking to Timothy he says to Timothy Flea we also youthful lust instead pursue righteousness. Faith love peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart we find and that in the second Timothy and escaping thing that we read about you know we've been talking about born in the last couple of podcast half of the. US adults lands fifty percent agree. Strongly that quote choosing not only the have sex outside of marriage is healthy unquote but generational differences are significant. Embargoes out in say a six. Ten elders older generation fifty nine percent of them agree strongly with his statement. Compared to fifty three percent of baby boomers forty nine nine percent of Gen xers and forty. Three percent millennials that it doesn't necessarily have to be between you know a husband and the wife. And so. Who is we get into this you know lance hot? What say you on? Why is it? So important to differentiate with our kids the idea of sex intimacy in a godly basis versus. What cultures telling us you know? I think it's this one of those topics where we don't would. We don't always want to talk about it but honestly our children are going to learn They'RE GONNA learn from us. What sex what marriage? What intimacy looks like and and I think honestly our marriage starts as one of the biggest examples of that not not to toot my own horn or anything but you know my my wife life and I constantly get comments about us? You know from friends and things like that that we have this sense of love and intimacy that you don't see in a lot of marriages is and even our kids realize that That there is this sense of of love and intimacy between Me and my wife I'm I'm glad that we were able to model that To our children and I think as as parents really important part because Believe me if we don't come in and we don't teach model to our kids The the biblical purpose enroll of sex the cultures gonNA come in and tell them it's something else Known Donte you're talking about right now and we saw some of the statistics from last week's podcast and some of the stuff barnes doing but many in our culture right now they see sex. It's a fundamental human rights. And it's just a bodily function society's kind of devalued what it's what what is meant to be shared between one man and one woman and God's Holy Marriage Covenant Covenant and our our culture kind of teaches now that that sex is not a big deal as long as it's two consenting adults involved. We saw the research on that last week. Where people agreed to that that is as long as two consenting adults WANNA have sex whether they're married not married in a marriage not married whatever? Go ahead and do it And the The other Stark factor Dante in. We were talking about this. In Barnard's researchers actually comes from the book. Good faith and this really stood out to me that The the way that we've devalued sex is a culture and the easy access everyone has to pornography right now. It cheapens sex and takes away from the deep intimacy. God intended to to be shared between a husband and wife and what they talked about in the book and in some of the Barna Research. Is that the issue that this has and I know you know. I've seen a lot of younger. People can probably relate to this. They just don't realize cicadas but this casual approach to sex's creating negative relationship hurting side effects And instead of Intimacy and emotional depth depth. Sex Any way you want. It is leading leading to more anxiety more depression more loneliness and more insecurity and for some we see the sexes. No longer even worth the trouble. You've got people now who I can. Just I don't have to go after sex. I can stay home and use pornography or you know. There's this thing in its. I hate to get into this Dante. What is GonNa if you haven't heard of this coming up? There's a sink called hookups. Where young people say? I don't want I want my sexual needs met. I want I want. I want to be sexually gratified but I don't necessarily want the emotional baggage the The amount of time and effort to put into a a healthy relationship. So I'd rather just jump into bed with somebody for a one night. Stand get my sexual needs met and then I can move on with my life And this this you know when you couple couple this with the prevalence in the access to pornography on demand this is really. It's it's having a cost on relationships it's having a cost on intimacy and ultimately want someday in when we get married it's GonNa have a cost As as what we bring into the marriage One one of the start. You know things. I think that They pointed out in the barn. Research was an I don't I I can't verify this so you can call me on this but playboy magazine in the you know Hugh Hefner the guy that kind of started the whole pornography or naked women in magazines business stopped. They actually don't Publish that in their magazine anymore. Because they said There's such a high prevalence. Everybody has access to porn that they've stopped even publishing publishing that type of stuff. And all this you know not going on rabbit hole here. But all of this is because these cultural The cultural beliefs the way our culture is going. It's ultimately it has consequences in these consequences is being seen within the intimacy in once. Finally people are getting married. They're getting into what we would call a A godly marriage. They're bringing some of this baggage and some of this emotional damage from years of Of of not not being biblical might be moral into marriage and it's causing issues in the marriage. And that was one of the scariest things to me Dante. As we talk about giving into self I give into my sexual gratifications gratifications I given to. What's desirable pleasurable right now? There's going to be long term consequences for that. Does that make sense you. Yeah my wife and I do marriage mentoring at our church. We do marriage mentoring in relationships that we pour into and I you know honestly I can tell you. Personal experience is buying into into the lie of sex before marriage doing it my way versus God's way there there is a lot of psychological and also physical damage image. That are a result of that enemy from you know people that just did not want to wait for marriage to God help us. You know of of kids getting abused or or an incident that somebody had the rights taken away or they were molested or they were attacked. You know in college or something like that and these are things that you know we sit there and we cheapen cheapen wait and we wonder like you even suggest pornography like I don't even need to go into the statistics I mean you can go out there and you can look at the most you know. a cultural statistics and or or Biblical statistics. But you know whether you're looking at mainstream or whether you're looking at you know religious background the all of the studies affirm absolutely that you know pornography is a into intimacy destroyer and and so there's a I think even a mainstream movie that Scarlett Johansson is in an effort the gentleman but just the the facts of how bad pornography destroys intimacy and. That's you know we're sitting there saying we'll okay but where do you. Where do you stop in like for you? The Listener. Listen if you're sitting there saying well you know I'm in a loveless or a lack of physical relationship right now with marriage so pornography is my justification. You can't justify that as a Christian and the let alone if you're sitting there telling me that I don't have intimacy anymore my relationship but then you're sitting there telling Lanson that you're justifying pornography pornography. The reason you don't have intimacy in your relationship is because that graffiti has stolen intimacy from your relationship and to have these AH honest questions okay. So what we permit we promote what we promote we permit and trying to have the influence of the spirit of those around us now all of a sudden therefore sitting there saying that's okay to our kids got help us that we're doing that to our daughters. Were doing that to our sons. You know I can tell you one friend whose mom was. It was very liberal about these is still having relationship issues. And he's in his fifties right now of trust of intimacy and all that and it's just because of these things that we don't look about long term consequences to living our way versus God's way and so you know like you said Lance I got way off into a rabbit hole but pulling it back you know. There's a way that God wants to live to pursue intimacy to pursue sexual relations and that's in a covenant marriage between one man one woman and that's not only biblical but that is so true and so many ways

Hurricane season 2019 is here, and could be intense

"Support for climate cast comes from Bank of America as one of the largest global financial institutions Bank of America is in a unique position to help society transition to a low-carbon economy, Bank of America, NA, member FDIC. What's the latest science on hurricanes and climate change? I'm NPR chief meteorologist Paul Hefner. This is climate cast. It's hurricane season again, in the past few years, several hurricanes have intensified so rapidly. They surprised forecasters. So what do we know about climate science and hurricanes in twenty nineteen hurricane expert? Gabe Vecchi is a professor of geosciences at Princeton University. So with hurricanes and climate. It is generally difficult to find very strongly detectable and very strongly. Attributable signals. This place is very differently than say temperature or rainfall for which, there are strongly detectable in the trivial signals. But what are starting to emerge in, tropical cyclones, as more modestly detectable in the tribute, -able signals are things related to, in particular the amount of rainfall, one example, is Harvey, where there has been some studies attributing. Aspects of the enhanced rainfall from Harvey on the warming that has happened to date for other things like the number of hurricanes in Atlantic. It's a little more problematic to make either detection or attribution statements in part because the way that we observe hurricanes now is very different from the way we observe them, fifty years ago and exceedingly different from the way we were observed them a hundred years ago. And so when we see a change, it's hard to know whether that is due to us looking at the storms differently or due to an actual change in the storms. So at this point where we sit today. What's the best message? You can give people about the current and future state of the science on climate change in hurricane. Well, I think that message that I could give people is the good news is we understand hurricanes and tropical cyclones and how they interact with climate much better. And in addition, this information has in a parallel way. Sometimes feeding back coincided with the development of better weather forecast models. So we're in a position where it can provide a lot better information on the bad news. It seems that many of the changes that we think are likely to occur from warming climate to hurricanes are the types of things that would, if we don't adapt, if we don't change our vulnerability lead to generally undesirable outcomes. And so what we have now is the opportunity to digest this physical science and try to understand how best to react to it gave Becky professor of geosciences at Princeton University. It's a great conversation. Thanks so much for your perspective today. Oh, you're welcome. Hi. My name is Joshua Hodak. I live in Minneapolis Minnesota, and I ride my bike, I ride my bike, because I enjoy it. It helps keep me healthy and minimize my impact on the environment and climate change. Bicycling's important for me because not only is it fun. But it also helps me stay healthy, I build in exercise otherwise would not get by riding my bicycle to and from work, and where I need to go, and it's a way for me to make a significant contribution to the environment and climate change. Transportation is the number one source of climate change pollution in Minnesota and the United States and our trips in our vehicles, particularly short trips that are under two miles, even are actually are most polluting trips and so by bicycling, even those short little trips. Those are the easiest chips to convert to bicycling to walking to Hoppy non of the bus or a train to sharing a ride in. So if we can convert more of these short trips we could really. They make a significant difference. That's climate cast. I'm NPR chief meteorologist Paul Hutton here.

How climate change risk is showing up in real estate

"Support for climate cast comes from Bank of America financing, clean energy initiatives, and advancements in renewable energy and spurring innovation in and the growth of environmentally focused companies markets and jobs, Bank of America, NA, member FDIC. Climate change risk showing up in real estate. I'm MPR chief meteorologist Paul Hefner. This is climate cast. The concept is pretty simple. Rising seas higher storm surges and unprecedented, flooding adds up to more risk for trillions of dollars in real estate. So now big real estate investment firms are calculating climate risk on property portfolios. Ed, Walter is global CEO with urban land institute. I think they're looking at the full gamut of what you see in the news on a regular basis. So one, they're looking at the impact of rising seas to they're looking at the impact of extreme heat and other markets. And lastly, you're looking at the impact of rising, it's a major storm events. So how does or will climate change risk be priced into current and future real estate, the challenge with this issue is that you can see in the long run that changes are coming to a variety of markets and something will ultimately need to be done to protect the real estate in those markets. And so as they're trying to assess. Yes that you have to both examine, what is the anticipated risk within an anticipated timeframe. And then what are the measures that are going to be required to protect against that as a real estate investor? Those dollars alternately whether they show up and investments in the building or higher tax rates within the city, the impact of those expenses, will ultimately affect the value of the building. What's the biggest message you think people should know about climate risk going forward? I think it's hard to dispute that we aren't seeing an increase in sea levels, and an increase in storm events and an increase in extreme heat. And so without getting caught up in the politics of debating climate change. I think the reality is, is cities need to be thoughtful and building owners need to be thoughtful about how to protect themselves against those three threats and so being smart and proactive about developing solutions where you can enhancing protections where you can. And developing where you should is really the best protection for any city against any real estate owner against those types of issues, and Walter global CEO with the urban land institute. Thanks so much for your perspective today graduates. Great to have a chance to talk with you. Paul hello. My name is Julie Marquel. I'm from Saint Paul Minnesota, Mike, climate story is about summer spent with my family up at Leech lake Minnesota. The storm. We had been watching build in the skies across the lake had reached our shore, wildfire foot waves crashed onto the beach reaching up to the treeline smoothing, the sand with each departure, the air, smelled of rain, fish and lake water, dark, clouds and shades of gray and blue hanging low in the sky, I watched as my young sons and nephew raced up and down the beach screeching and delight as they jumped to avoid the NextWave. This is a place of family history. A rustic camp compound, my parents had created for our family. When I was very young, where he would spend a month every summer living off the grid tents were shelters meals, all cooked outdoors on a raised. Her rooms were carved out of the Greenwood's with trees and sky as our ceiling, so many amazing experiences campfires. Storytelling in songs star field skies Northern Lights from horizon to zenith long lazy days swimming reading exploring the woods building forts and sand castles, we were visited by FOX bears. Skunks raccoons and owls in a life list of birds. I assume that this was a world that as it was would also belong to my children and their children. That will not be the vegetation, will change the cold clear lake will warm climate change is a reality. I pass on to the next generation. I stay hopeful engaged and committed to imagining a better world. That's climate cast with thanks to climate generations talk climate institute. I'm NPR chief meteorologist Paul Hutton. Her.

Survey: 55 percent of Americans think we're doing enough to fight climate change

"Support for climate cast comes from Bank of America financing clean energy initiatives and advancements in renewable energy and spurring innovation in and the growth of environmentally focused companies markets and jobs Bank of America, NA, member FDIC. Americans want to stop climate change. But how do they do it? I'm MPR chief meteorologist Paul Hefner. This is climate cast. A new survey shows most Americans want to stop climate change. But only fifty five percent believe they're doing enough Jodie. Manning is director of marketing with carbon reduction organization cool effects well leading up to Earth Day, we talked about two thousand different Americans to try to understand how they feel about climate change and mostly about the role that carbon emissions are playing in it. Eighty two percent feel that carbon emissions play a major role in climate change. Although only about fifty five percent feel that they're doing enough to stop it before it becomes catastrophic. And what do you think the disconnect is there between those two numbers? Most Americans feel that it's a problem that they can't overcome that. It's too large of an issue or that government or businesses actually need to take more action, but it cool effect. What we found is that every individual action can actually have massive change over the last three years. We have actually reduced over seven hundred twenty five thousand metric tons of carbon pollution literally one ton at a time. So of the actions that people are taking which kind of actions or people adopting the most cycling changing their light bulbs, turning lights off those things are all really, really helpful. They're using reusable water bottles and they're bringing their own backs. But they're still so many more things that can actually be done. You can call your local electric company and request renewable energy. That's one of the biggest things that we could do because it helps us reduce our dependency on fossil fuel in full disclosure. I get one hundred percent of mile electric power from wind power through my local utility. It is pretty easy. It's simply a phone call or in some cases, going online. I see that almost sixty. Percent of respondents do not currently purchase electricity from renewable sources or driving electric car. That seems like a pretty big opportunity for greenhouse gas. Reductions how do you get people to take that step one, especially when we're talking about renewable energy most people think they have to install the solar panels themselves or somehow access wind power the more that we adopt those types of renewable energies on our grids and the Maureen request them the more. We can have them at any individual home Jodie manning, director of marketing with carbon reduction organization cool effects, thanks for sharing your insight today on climate. Thank you so much Paul. And thank you for all the work. You're doing. My name is Trevor Drake, I'm a program manager at the Great Plains institute. I live in Minneapolis. And I drive a twenty fifteen Nissan leaf. So I was on the fence about buying an e and my dad actually said if you're going to be working in this climate and energy space, you really have to. And that was the thing that gave me the confidence to go and make the purchase I've actually found it to be great. I love it. The range hasn't really been an issue at times where it's been an issue have been able to find a fast charger, and we also have a 'nother guess fueled vehicle. So for longer trips were able to use that and it's become our go around town car. So use it for work music for grocery shopping. Really anything we need that fits within the range, which is pretty big for the most part. I've just charged at home. They found that to be the most convenient and the easiest there are charters at goodwill locations, and those are the fast chargers Goto and people often ask me about it when they're and they're just interested to know more some people don't think they're viable. They think it's sort of an odd technology. And so you explain no it's just like a normal car. It's electric powered it's really nice there. Questions about the rain like how do you handle that? And you know, hasn't been an issue for me. So it's just people getting up to speed and learning about something that's new and understanding that it's it's actually a really viable option. That's climate cast. I'm NPR chief meteorologist, Paul hunter.

Corporate risk, opportunity from climate change

"Support for climate cast comes from Bank of America financing clean energy initiatives and advancements in renewable energy and spurring innovation and the growth of environmentally focused companies markets and jobs Bank of America, NA, member FDIC. Corporate risk and opportunity from climate change. I'm NPR chief meteorologist Paul Hefner. This is climate cats. Coke worries about water supplies, AT and T lost six hundred million in weather, disasters and Home Depot. Sees prophets. A new report details climate change risks opportunities and bottom line impacts for major companies. Chris FLA Val covers climate change and business for Bloomberg news, real gannet. But I think the most relevant and pressing threat. His can we keep on doing what we do making? What we make an selling what we sell in a world in which climate change gets worse and worse. And and how do we deal with that? You know, you mentioned coke that is jumps right off the page. Right. Of Coca Cola is showing concern about water resources because they may not be able to find water to bottle their product in some areas. Isn't that a big red flag for many? Companies on climate change. Yeah. You know, the thing that you notice reading through these reports is of the companies that responded, which is an all of them. But a lot of them. I looked at the biggest companies by market capitalization. It's pretty hard to find companies that dispute the notion that climate change will threaten their profitability or their strategy. There seems to be a wide degree of consensus on that question. It means something, and it's not good, or at least the risks are real. And they're serious. Chris businesses look at risks. And they look for two days, I found the apple comments in your story kind of interesting our iphones as an emergency response device. The most surprising part of all this probably is the interesting ways in which companies say they can increase their revenue and apple is a great example. I thought this notion of banks saying, hey, our customers, you need money to deal with this and we can help with that. We can help them fund new things. I gotta build Home Depot saying people are gonna need. More air conditioners, more ceiling fan things like that. And then of course, what can you do with an iphone which I never thought of before? So one could see this as I guess, a good news story where people societies and communities and individuals will have a whole range of new needs that they might not even thought of yet and degree that companies actually respond by offering new things that meet those needs. It doesn't solve the problem. But maybe it makes things less acute. We are all sailing into uncharted waters. Here it seems Chris Lavelle covers climate change and business for Bloomberg news. Thanks for talking about your reporting today on climate cast pay me on. My name's Dan Kruger. I'm twenty four I moved to the tons as a couple of years ago, and I bought an electric car because I was curious about it. And I think it's a much better way to travel. I've always kind of been tackled obsessed, and I come from it from that angle, and sort of through that reading blogs and things I come out to tesla cars, and that really turned me into electric vehicles. I'd like to think that I would be interested in anyway with without tesla influence, but I think that's kind of the whole point of that company. Is it makes cars that people care about not because they're efficient or because they're good for the environment. But because they're fun and cool. I got my car two years ago roughly, and I bought it used from tesla directly the experience of owning. It has been really simple. I mean, it's a lot like any other car and frankly easier in most respects, I don't need to get all changes or anything like that. I bought a couple sets tire so far. I like to think of it like the more people that are early adopters now, and I still think of this as early even though there's a ton of electric cars on the road. Personally. It's more about helping create demand for the infrastructure. So people install more chargers, which ultimately, I think is kind of the pickle. You'd be surprised at how relatively easy. It would be a lot of people to have an electric car. Even as a second one out of the two cars in your family, and a lot of those people could on a purely selfish level. Save a ton of money driving to work in back. You're driving twenty miles a day. You're going to be spending a lot less money on electricity than you would be on gas. That's climate cast.

Study: Great Lakes hit hardest by climate change in U.S.

"Support for climate cast comes from Bank of America financing clean energy, initiatives and advancements in renewable energy and spurring innovation and the growth of environmentally focused companies markets and jobs. Bank of America NA member FDIC good morning. Twenty one percent. That's how much of the world's freshwater lies in the Great Lakes. Thirty four million people live in the Great Lakes basin. Now, a new study finds climate change in the Great Lakes is happening faster than the rest of the US study co author Lucinda Johnson is the associate director at the natural resources research institute at the university of Minnesota Duluth for the US as a whole to average temperatures have increased by one point two degrees Fahrenheit, whereas for the Great Lakes in the states bordering the Great Lakes that is one point four degrees Fahrenheit. And actually if you just look at the base in itself, the increase has been one point six degrees Fahrenheit over that. Period. Of the last century. So the Great Lakes is warming faster than the rest of the United States. It looks like it's also getting wetter. I saw this in the study US annual precipitation increased four percent between nineteen o one and twenty fifteen but the Great Lakes region saw about a ten percent increase with more of this precipitation coming as unusually large events what jumps out at you there in that piece of data. Well, the problem with large events is that they are just so destructive. They are distracted from the standpoint of our infrastructure and just the destruction to people's homes is is heartbreaking. But similarly, we see these large events responsible for moving a lot of the sediment and nutrients from the landscape into nearby water bodies, which has a very detrimental effect on what a quality. And we hear about algae blooms we know that lakes like Erie that are much shallower. Are more prone to those what about lake superior? I know it's a cold lake. We don't get a lot of algae blooms there. But as we wash these nutrients in and as the lake temperatures warm is that's something we might expect more of in the future. Well, one of the things that we are really quite concerned about is the fact that we have been observing algal blooms in lake superior. We've seen three blooms that happen to coincide with these very very large rain events. So just this past summer. There was a bloom around the little town of cornucopia. And although this wasn't the toxic algal bloom that we know of it is a huge concern to us to begin to see elbow. Blooms in water body, like lake superior, which is known to be very pristine. Now, we have a terse base to Konami where people in -ticipant that the water quality is going to be very clear and the thought that we might be. Experiencing algal blooms this very clear and pristine body of water is of huge concern to both the ecologists as well as to society as a whole big picture Lucinda as you look at this study, what changes on lake superior will you be monitoring closely and keeping an eye on in the next ten years or so the most important changes that we think are going to be the surface water temperatures and the number and intensity of these large storm events. So the combination of these warmer temperatures with increase nutrients coming in from the land have the potential to really change the ecosystem along the shoreline. And and we have a lot of concerns about that loosened Johnson associate director at the natural resources research institute at the university of Minnesota Duluth. Thanks for your insight today on climate cast. Well, thank you, Paul. And I. Really appreciate all of the great reporting that you joined climate change that's climate cast.

Why our trees are like climate change fighting superheroes

"Support for climate cast comes from Bank of America as one of the largest global financial institutions Bank of America is in a unique position to help society. Transition to a low-carbon economy Bank of America NA member FDIC in today's climate cast Ampere chief meteorologist Paul hut, ner talks about how one of the most powerful climate change Lucians might be right outside your window. Good morning. Five billion dollars a year. That's how much those trees outside your window, reduce energy bills in US cities every year and since trees, pull CO two directly from the atmosphere. They absorb as much as twenty percent of our annual greenhouse gas emissions, but wait there's more university of Minnesota center for forest to college director Lee Froehlich explains why are trees are like climate change fighting superheroes. Trees are basically built out of carbon dioxide that they take from the air and they use that to build, cellulose, which is the structure of the. Tree. So about forty eight percent of the tree is actually carbon that was taken out of the atmosphere. So we can store a lot of carbon in trees for a long time. Let's break that down a report by climate central says trees in the twin cities alone remove seven point three million tons of CO two per year. Could it be that high? Oh, definitely it could. But it's still probably only one or two percent of all the CO two emissions in a big metro area like this. So if we want to make an impact on the c o two content of the atmosphere, we're gonna have to talk about planning trees over bigger areas than just metro areas. So how many trees can we realistically plant, and what's the possible carbon-offset there? Well, as Ben estimated that if we planted in area say a third the size of the United States worldwide sounds like a lot. But it's only two or three percent of the land area of the world. We could. Take up. Thirty three percent of all the CO two emissions and combined with energy efficiency and renewable energy. We could actually get to zero emissions that way the other benefit here that I found interesting is stormwater runoff. The same report says twenty two hundred million gallons of stormwater runoff roughly could be avoided in the twin cities by all of our trees. How does that work? Exactly. Well, the trees soak up the water with their rents out of the soil, and that creates spaces in the soil. So that the next time it rains, there's room for the rain. Then of course, the trees transpire that water out through the leaves. And they just keep doing that all summer, so they're really good at creating space in the soil for new rainfall and another interesting number here. One hundred eighty seven million pounds of air pollution removed from the twin cities by our trees. What's the process there? The leaves of trees are covered with waxes and particulate pollution can get stuck. Doc on those waxes, and then just fall to the ground with the leaves in the fall, they can also absorbed some of the gaseous pollutants other than CO two can be absorbed into the tree and the tree might do various things with it with all the chemical mechanisms inside the tree. So they're almost like filters. Yeah, they are. So what's the best way? For people listening to climate cast today to benefit from planting trees, what kinds of trees should they plant and where should they put them? If you had only one tree a tree about fifteen or twenty feet from the southwest corner of the house that would shade the house during the hottest part of the afternoon would make the biggest difference in energy. Then if it's a deciduous tree to lose its leaves. And let the sun come through in the winter to help heat the house. Finally, I've been wondering about the answer to this question. It's an age old question. If a tree in the forest falls, and nobody is there to hear it. Does it make a sound? Yes. It does because sow. Linda's vibrations in the air and the tree will still cause. Those weather. Anybody listens to it? I couldn't resist and there will be squirrels that will hear it. So yes. University of Minnesota center for forest ecology director, Lee Froehlich, thanks for putting up with me today year. Welcome that's climate cast. I'm NPR chief meteorologist Paul Hefner.

In Cuba, climate change means harsher hurricanes and tough coffee growing

"Support for climate cast comes from Bank of America as one of the largest global financial institutions Bank of America is in a unique position to help society. Transition to a low-carbon economy Bank of America NA member FDIC. Climate change, Cuba and your morning coffee. I'm MPR chief meteorologist, Paul Hutton here. This is climate gas. Climate change impacts are showing up worldwide. Our neighbors in Cuba, sit just ninety miles south of Key West Florida last week, I visited this beautiful island for the first time and I shared coffee with famed Cuban meteorologist Jose, ruby era. I learned about Cuba climate change and surprisingly Cuban coffee. That is we yes, please have some coffee Jose. I'll never be a PHD. I'm the former director of the national forecast center east for majority. That's the natural west have is the set time for many years. Also, I've been presenting weather in Cuban radio and television host say Grazia mature goose still. It was a pleasure to talk with you today here in Havana at the hotel Nacional when we talk about climate change in Cuba. What are the biggest impacts that Cuba is seen from climate change so far? Well, the because he banked is the raising up to she lever. Now, does he live house reason ferry vice Timmel's in the last thirty years thing pictures have risen also sealed point nine Chechen degree about one degree treasures on the Lincoln shown are the coastlines that long Cuban coastline is extremely vulnerable. To storm surge. Hurricane irma's. Search pushed several feet of water into the streets of Havana. Dr ruby era is one of the world's premier experts on hurricanes. Any told me his big concern is the growing link between warmer, oceans and more rapidly. Intensifying hurricanes part of his job on Cuban TV raising Cuba's climate change. I q what's the awareness level of climate change in Cuba with the people? Well, this White House not only in Asia climate change, everything that has to be with winning. Diamond because we in Daly broadcast for television radio. We also teach believed by little people. I wish awareness and knowledge. Even as we traveled outside of Havana climate remained, the topic of conversation. I'm just north of Trinidad in Cuba at topa, date tapes. It's a mountainous area where they grow coffee and our tour guide nasc- is telling us about how climate change is affecting coffee production in Cuba. Well, what is happening is that it's raining when it's not supposed to be the rainy season or the stood ri- when it's not supposed to be the dry season. And just to give you an example, the coffee plants they used to bloom like three times in a year. And then at the end they had a really good crop. Yeah. But now, they are blooming only one or twice the farmers are lucky, you know, because if it rains when the plants are having their flowers, the flowers hall, and then at the end, there are no beans, and that is happening, you know, with the coffee plantations so many years ago, the farmers they could use the same plant life for twenty twenty five years now that is not happening anymore. So now the maximum time, they they leave their plans at the patience is like ten years talking with Cubans like, our guide nasc-, I sense a high level of. Climate change awareness in Cuba. There's also something I learned back at lunch in Havana. I heard how Cuban's see Dr ruby era as their weather God hosts say was traveling in two thousand seventeen as hurricane Irma approached listen to restaurant owner, ROY describe how Cuban's missed Jose's weather reports on TV. I think it was a guy TV the first today's guy we had to be alert. Okay. Off on the one eighty we have through research. We have to know what's going on by the way. That's climate cast.
