"Where textiles can be shredded and respond. So there's no manipulation of the molecules whereas chemical recycling just really top level is able to either break down the materials like polyester, back down to polymers or even monomers, but also we're able to strip out all the dyes and contaminants. We're able to purify the raw materials in the case of PET to produce virgin equivalent building blocks. For cotton, it's a slightly different matter. It's a natural fiber. So when it goes through wear and tear, consumer use washing the fiber length reduces in size. So the quality reduces. So you can't really turn cotton back into cotton. You can blend it with virgin cotton to get a good quality. But essentially, if you want to chemically recycle it, the best way is to break it down and recapture the cellulose to then use that cellulose material to go back into cellulosic fiber. I mean, it's super complex and there are different variations of this. But the real limitations with mechanical recycling are to do with quality of output, not being able to separate polyester and cotton once they've been brought together. That's something that over the next three to 5 years is going to become a lot more prevalent. He started that completely different tell us a bit about that. Let's rewind. So he started wanting to be a filmmaker and wet in music video, right? That's right. Yes, in my very early days, my age is going to come out in this. That's okay. Experience and wisdom. Wisdom. I started out in the creative industries, really excited about filmmaking, telling stories. I started film production in Los Angeles. And did about a year working in films there as a runner, bottom of the heap, really. That's just getting ordered around and getting the coffee, isn't it making tea? Yeah. And picking people up and dropping them off. But it was exciting when you're 19, 20 years old. And then I moved to London on a whim and ended up. I've been here ever since. And continued in filmmaking, music videos, commercials, and then more factual based programming. But really, it was a gradual shift. As I was doing filmmaking, my personal interest started to evolve. And it was round about the time of the I don't know if you remember of the WTO protests in Seattle. That was about 1990 1999. A World Trade Organization where people were on the streets, not just activists, but workers, people from all walks of life were out protesting and making noise about issues which became known as globalization. Yeah. And it really sparked my interest because I thought, well, what's getting all of these people so excited to get out on the street and do something about it? And so that's when I started getting very interested in global economics, politics and what made the world tick. You told me actually the other day when we were prepping for this that you'd read Naomi Klein's no logo and you said it awakened something in you. Well, that's right. It was Naomi Klein's no logo. I also started reading about the roots of poverty and equality and environmental issues. And, you know, there were a whole host of authors like Naomi Klein, Paul Hawken, bandana Shiva, hunter levins, and they were all talking about nature based economics..

"Sixty percent of their profitability. They were the fastest growing brands so they said to all of their brands. Go Find Your authentic purpose when you engage people particularly young people when they have a say in how. They're doing their job when they are able as part of their day. The job to be implementing more sustainability. This is what gives you the higher productivity of labour and that then delivers there's higher profitability engaged workforce's have eighteen percent higher productivity sixteen percent higher profitability again. Dan This is just better business so this is what we teach for example at the Bard NBA. Where I teach in which sustainability is woven into every class we teach? It's not a bolt on. It's not an elective. It's the way we teach how to do accounting or strategy. I I think it's going to turn out better business leaders. Well Hunter. Thanks so much for this conversation. Hate to bring it to a close. We could have taken a deep deep dive down any of the avenues that we got into. But we'll save those conversations for another time if you'd like to have the last word any final thoughts thanks to all of you who listen to this podcast. Thanks for caring what you do. The choices you make in your life are what will determine the future of humanity and Dave. I'm deeply grateful to you for all the work that you've always done and I'm grateful to your listeners. That they take the time and that they care care together we can build a finer future. Wow I really missed out on such a stimulating conversation. Hunter really earns the title Heidel for being Newsweek's green business icon. Well I'm sorry you didn't get too involved in that. I do think very highly of hunter I will admit I don't know whether you you could tell from the interview but I'm not one hundred percent in lockstep with her. I think the gist of the book is that we aren't doomed. And the things we need need to do to get our system tuned up and back in sustainable balance with nature are actually profitable and I would expect that kind of message from hunter because she spends almost lost all of her time and energy advising top management of big companies so that keeps her nonprofit going and it also is really doing a good service. I mean we really really do. Need the big companies of the world to be rethinking. Their bottom line rethinking their goals and trying to find the cure for growth addiction trying trying to operate with more sustainable moral code and a little bit less of a profit maximization code so that's a good thing in hunters found a way to speak their language. Yeah and she says that we are already in the process of seeing a one eighty global shift in our energy the an economic infrastructures. And she points that. This isn't because people are interested in saving the polar bears or saving our environment necessarily. But it's really more about being better business and that makes sense because she's speaking to people who live and breathe Steve Economics and business and all things that I do not projections about the complete. Dissolution of nonrenewable by by twenty thirty. Sounds a little bit like Andrew McAfee and what he says about how eventually in developing nations will be demanding more technology and that we're going to willingly provide access to these technologies because we want to see them become richer and in a sense I would like to see an end to mass human suffering but the amount of power needed to make a significant impact is immense and and I think that ultimately it comes down to one thing significant cultural and shifts well. I'm glad you brought that up because we definitely need those. I do not think that we can make the move to sustainable human civilization simply by doing a good business. We're going to have to really rethink things. And we've got a definitley rethink our whole approach to the economy. If we stay addicted to robust economic growth will never be able to get the infrastructure in place to provide renewable energy to power just like you said to power that huge economy and a continually growing economy. Plus we're not going to solve all the other sustainability challenges she's not just climate change shifting to renewables and finer future really is all about reducing carbon emissions and that's certainly important but shifting to renewables doesn't do anything for us in terms of depletion of fertile soils to certification the the fact that we're pumping major rivers and offers dry and driving other species off the planet. Those things will require us to do something else and that is is really get serious about addressing the problem we have with the just the sheer scale of the human enterprise which is both our economy and our population relation right while said we can have all of these new policies and new technologies to solve the problems. We have today but we're bound to repeat history if we don't take responsibility for the way that we're living this means a reexamination of our definition of success. What it means to lead a meaningful life ideas about family size and thinking more about where and how we are investing our money? Yeah yeah good point. Good that she is speaking the language of people who are pulling really big levers and hopefully moving them in the right direction but there's a lot of work to be done and I was curious about what you thought when hunter and I did talk a little bit about population and she seemed to feel like if we can get zero zero population growth in that solves the population side of the equation. Yeah you know I agreed with a lot of what hunter had to say about without giving women the freedom to choose what to do with their bodies. I am and have been for a very long time in advocate for women's reproductive rights. Hi and I really liked that she. Also referenced Dr Malcolm Potts at UC Berkeley who has made some really positive contributions as the former armor chair of the Bixby Center for Population Health and sustainability. They're dedicated to research aimed at achieving slower population growth and and addressing. The unmet need for family planning in some of the world's poorest nations so just knowing Dr Potts's work I agree with everything she had to say about from his five ways to achieve Z.. PG We can agree on that but it's also a downstream solution. We really need to define what it means to be a family today. I sound like a broken record but I don't think that we can achieve zero population. Any demographer will tell you that it's never stable. It's constantly fluctuating. And the reason it fluctuates is because people change every single day and I want to see some bigger changes some bigger cultural shifts when it comes to establishing bonds and what it means to bring life into the world. I don't want to continue to see. This marriage equals two point five children white picket fence living the good life. The idea continue to exist. Because that's just not sustainable all important points but what you've left unsaid. Tell me if you disagree but I'd be shocked. D- Did Bain hang up with that. Is that just ending. Population growth doesn't solve the problem. When you are way overpopulated so here we are? It was seven point seven billion people on the planet. There is no way the entire population of the earth is going to be willing to live simply enough that seven point seven billion. Some people aren't destroying our life supporting ecosystems so our population has got to contract back to a lower level that will match up in some kind of sustainable balance with a decent life that everybody's entitled to love the Best Science that we have on that is we're looking at a target of two billion people are probably under three billion anyway so Z.. PG's zero population growth that basically kinda freezes us even if we're fluctuating a little bit plus or minus if we're hovering around seven point seven billion. We're pretty well sunk. We need to get back down to two or three billion people and then fluctuate a little bit around that. Yeah Yeah and she also didn't make the distinction between national population growth versus global population growth. I mean we're already seeing breath declines in a number of countries around the world. But that's still not enough you and I would say that's a good thing. That's a positive thing that people are having less babies but that's only in a number of countries that it needs to be lower even in the countries where we're making progress. We can't say mission accomplished because when you're a seven point seven billion and your planet is crumbling ambling beneath your feet we need let our population shrank as fast as possible. So we got work to do whether you're living in a country where the fertility facility rate is one and a half or living in a country where the fertility rate is five. You got work to do either way right. I do want to make a note. I know hundred mention the fracking ballot initiative in the November election. And because here we are sharing this interview interview after November of two thousand nineteen people might think she's talking about something that was in November two thousand nineteen election and because we recorded the conversation last a strawberry. She was talking about the November. Two thousand eighteen election. Just for clarification for that. Well I'll just say one last thing about Hunter Levin's very smart lady and she's got a mind like a file cabinet. She's got a good grasp of a lot of facts that all support very well the points that she's trying to make which are good points. Yeah She's really a pleasure to listen to and I hope to have her. You're on the show again. I you want to go ahead and share a video I came across it is tidal Greta. Thunberg and George Monte hot make short it film on the climate crisis. This.

August thirty year loan on it. and. nine three from now until like a fifteen and I talked to the guys at Churchill. they can drop my percent four point six down to like three point three. game. what's your loan balance. three nineteen okay let's go save you about thirty three hundred Bucks a year. yeah okay and what's the closing costs. me about five thousand cash if you save thirty three hundred a year it takes two years to get your money back right. correct thirty year you're in gravy. yeah and what and how quickly we get this loan paid off in full do you think. five years. maybe ten years. I'd say about me yeah okay show you refinance because you can save on the interest not to move it from a thirty two of fifteen but while you're at it you move to a fifteen if your rate was already in the low threes we would not re finances we would just pay extra on it and let it pay off in fifteen. okay wouldn't go through the five thousand a refinance Costa shifted from thirty to fifteen the only reason we're doing that is we're gonna save one point three percent a year Roach in your case is going to be thirty three hundred Bucks or so give or take a little bit more than that and you're going to you know you're gonna break even about the eighteen month mark on your closing costs and it's gonna make a lot of sense for the three finance but it's because of the interest rate savings. and then that's what makes you do it not to move it to a fifteen but while you're at it you go ahead and do the fifteen that's what I would do. phones at triple eight eight.

"Away from the national press building in Washington DC. This is your requirement point morning minute for Wednesday may twenty two twenty nineteen. I'm Russell Mokaba across the country. Legions of home care givers, pittance to tend to the elderly in residential houses. Refurbished as care facilities. That's according to an investigation from reveal from the Senate investigative reporting the profit, margins can be huge and providers of labor laws hinge, on the widespread exploitation of thousands of caretakers, many of them poor immigrant's, effectively earning two dollars to three dollars and fifty cents an hour to work around the clock. The federal hourly minimum wage is seven dollars and twenty five cents the center for investigative reporting interviewed more than eighty workers care home. Operators and government regulators and reviewed hundreds of wage theft cases, handled by California and federal labor regulators, the investigation found rampant waitstaff has pushed a vast majority of these kids givers into poverty, but the corporate crime reporter, I'm Russell Khyber. Thank you. Russell, how well is our energy grid protected. Our next guest knows more about this than just about anyone in the country. Joel Gordon is a military combat veteran who flew over one hundred thirty combat missions over. Vietnam. Laos. In Cambodia is formerly, the president of the environmental energy solutions, and the center for energy security solutions, both energy consultancies involved in multidisciplinary aspects of energy and environment especially as it relates to security. Welcome to the Ralph Nader radio. Our Joel gorgeous. Thank you very much. Nice to be with both you in Ralph. Thank you very much. Also jolt listeners, we always talk about informed citizens, persuading and educating their fellow citizens down at the village square level and Joel gorgeous is very good example of that, and recently, he made a presentation at the Winston community bookstore on the question of security, starting out, saying it's a matter of when not if our networks, get attacked through cyber warfare and is so impressed, the reporter that the lakeville journal put on as a major story on page one which. Is rather unique for local newspaper. So I'm gonna ask you the first question Joe describe our particular energy grid that, you think and many others think can be a target of state action like other countries around the world or wildcat action. And with spectacularly disastrous results describes the grid system at how mutually interdependent it is. They give us a trinity for keeping our whole society operating day after day. Thank you, for the very kind words in opening and Ralph ASCA very good. Question is what's the nature of the threat, and it's multi faceted and let me start by answering his question about how grid set up right now and we call it a centralized grid. And this means that it has large units that are very. Distant from each other, and this is something where you can interfere with it at many points within the transmission distribution. And even in some cases on the generation, and it's not easy for it to isolate into certain other areas of the we are beginning to get better through certain technologies. It doesn't provide storage as a buffer, which decentralized system would be doing. And again, it's these long links between the different generation units of lot of this information was I pointed out by Amri and L hunter, levins in their book, brittle power way, back in nineteen eighty two and I pretty much stick by that formula that they gave it also, by the way, doesn't have easy user controllability at the local level. The control comes from those. Distant places many mouse way all those add different elements of vulnerability to our grid. So that's the situation now and describes the electromagnetic type of attack. But before you do that. So people know what the person's situation is, isn't it true that China and Russia and others are in bedding in our system, and we've got embedding in their system. And that's the prime deterrent. At least against those actors from attacking because they will get retaliated against with the viruses in their systems. But describe the electromagnetic first, before you go into the mutual assured destruction aspect. Well, there's, there's many different ways that the grid can be compromised. And when we talk electro-magnetic, I think people are talking about electromagnetic pulse. There's been a great deal of. Discussion on that lately. The electric power research institute just came out with a paper poo pooing electromagnetic pulse. But then Dr Peter pry who headed up a commission on EMP as we call it countered him. So right now, it's a he said, she said, even as far as the leaf -ality let's call it all electro magnetic pulse, but there are other threats to the grid and let me go through a few of them because you'll EMP is just one. Of course, we learned with the oil embargoes couple of decades ago about fuel supply interruptions, and that was a big one. There's also the physical security of the generation transmission and distribution of the grid itself, and of the transmission and distribution lines as well as generation, then we have foreign dependency or disruption of globalized supply chain for certain component. It's things like large scale step up transformers, which are needed in a centralized system sometimes are unavailable, because most of them are no longer made in this country and they're very, very difficult to transport any significant distances. The other interesting thing is most of the lithium that we get for lithium ion batteries, which we use for everything now, including electric cars are basically, coming from South America, which has the vast majority of the lithium supplies at this point in time. So that's a weak point in the supply chain. Then we get to the cyber threats including a number of different forms of cyberthreats, everything from embedded Cho's, in foreign source components that we get to worms viruses, and we even put electromagnetic pulse into this category is cyberthreat then you can get. A blended combination of all those that somebody might do a physical tack and at the same time and do a cyber attack. So that's another one finally won it sort of new and not in the lexicon, as much is adding complexity to an already what we call tightly coupled complex system, and that just means there's more stuff out there and the more stuff you have it's the more stuff that can go wrong. So those are your main threats to the electric grid right now. Well, you know, in two thousand fifteen Ted Koppel amounts bestseller called lights out, which focused on impending catastrophe from a cyber attack, and we had him on this program, and he was saying, you know, the Obama administration doesn't seem to get the urgency, and of course, the Trump administration doesn't either. It's like nobody wants to talk about it because it's too horrific it will shut down your. Air conditioning shut down your electric light systems in your home. It will totally immobilize and paralyze and lead into catastrophic traffic, congestions, mass transit systems, you know, right out of science fiction. And so as a society, like most societies, we don't like to talk about these horrific scenarios. So let's say our listeners absorbing what you're saying, Joel gorgeous. How come it has happened could come from so many different sources, so many of places in the world doesn't have to come from guns or bombs? Why hasn't happened? Well, we have had the incident in Ukraine where the one plant was taken down. And that was sort of a warning shot across the bile, and I would say that there have probably been a number of close calls on it. Who knows some of this information may not leak out into the world. Now that being. There have been other types of cyber attacks, which have actually taken down part of not the electric grid itself as opposed to the actual net itself. And that was there was a major cyber attack against dine corporation, which operates part of the internet, and it froze traffic for some very major companies on their cyber needs. So it's a matter of bats away and, and something we have to be aware. But you're right. It's something that we have not seen. It's something that's maybe a bit on the horizon, because you're not gonna find a lot of amateurs, with the capability to be able to do this. So it's not like certain other cyber-attacks, but believe me, the grid is to coin a phrase, unsafe at any speed will, you know, Joel gorgeous, you talk about what we can do to mitigate such an attack, and I want you to talk about that, but before we do what about all these smart? Art home smart meters, smart, gadgets, that almost all the people have in this country here saying that, that is part of the problem and that you don't have any of these smart gadgets. Although the electric companies are forcing households to replace her older meters with smart meters. Tell us about the vulnerability that we all have when we have these smart gadgets in our hands or in our homes. Well you see this is exactly what's happening in right now. We're probably bordering on a trillion smart types of devices one way or the other. And what happens is, it's the smart types of devices are the things that can be commandeered and then focused against something like an electric grid in order to bring it down. So that's exactly right, that we need to start saying, hey, let's start getting smart grids up to standards because a lot. Of the devices that you and I by can be commandeered to be used against us in this respect. And a lot of them do not even have a place to put in a code that allows only you be able to control. So you in his and civic, and your presentation, you said Amazon recently admitted that employees listen to customer voice recordings from echo and other smart speakers. And in recent years, there have been major security breaches reported by Facebook Google. My heritage Dow Jones Twitter, Mary lucky Martin the Pentagon in others. So we're talking about just like a preview of what could happen on a national scale here right from these consumer gadgets. Have you voided the pressure from the electric companies to put a smart meter in your home? Well, the only problem I have is that I have a small photo. Pay system producing energy for me cleanly to combat climate change. And that would be a semi smart meter. But the type of invert her that I have is part of the system is pretty good and secure as far as I know. So it's a matter of making sure that the devices that you have have number one, the capability to be secure in number two, that to have gone and done everything you could to keep them secure. So those, those are the important things that need to take place. But with with the proliferation of everything every refrigerator going out every vision going up with smart capability. Nobody's paying attention to this, and all of them can be commandeered. Yeah. You say smartphones. Thermostat security cameras, DVR players, monitors and other high-tech appliances now commonplace in. Tens of millions of homes. And so we got a personal stake here. This is we're waiting for some national decision maker. We're all part of this vulnerable situation. So let's say you're in charge of policy here, Joel mortis. How would you mitigate this? Well, I don't think there's any way now that the genie's out of the box to do a complete mitigation, particularly what's already out there in the field. However, I would be if I were in congress or even in a state legislature, find some way to put certain requirements onto what happens when a company sells a product, which is capable of being commandeered. And if the it is, then basically, something has to be done about not allowing them to either put it in place, or to recall, it and have some work done to make sure that it has the right codes put in place your.
