"Science is going to be key if we if we ignore that science and sort of put our head in the sand and think it's all about vegetative management, we're not going to succeed together protecting Californians. It'll start getting cooler. Just. You just watch I wish science. I. Don't think signs knows actually. Tech's to your president trump blames four a poor forest management for these fires despite the fact that most of them in. California. At least are on federal lands. Yeah Governor Newsom has had stood carefully here on the one hand you know federal. Federal Sixty percent of landing California's owned by the federal government. So even a forest management were the main issue would point to a federal responsibility as well but I think you know newsom out to try to careful line because on the one hand California needs emergency aid the federal government to attack these fires. But on the other hand, there is a fundamental disagreement as newsom told trump when it comes to the fundamental reality of climate change which trump has not accepted in response to those comments said Asia Joe, Biden called Trump A. climate arsonist whose denial of science responsible for the widespread destruction what did you hear in the president's? This week. Right, I mean I. Think this is worse. This is part of the contrast here between these two men who would like to be president for the next four years. Biden is someone who talks about details. He is deeply briefed. He had almost two hour briefing on vaccine's corona virus. Also this week. Trump is someone who operates on instincts He has confidence in his own abilities whatever anyone else thinks of his abilities that is where he's coming from and he does not believe that climate change either Israel or is something that the government needs to worry about I will say though. It's our job to kind of talk about facts into look at facts and I noticed a report from the Congressional Resource Research Office a service that came out early September and they noted that every year since two thousand the amount of acreage of wildfires that have burned in his country is double what it was a decade ago. So it's clear that something is changing. It's also clear that science.

It is the single most important factor that determines what the climate is going to be in the future and what the temperature is going to be and how much precipitation is going to be so much so that we have a danger sign on carbon dioxide. But the question I wanted to WanNa ask is, is it really a benefit? Not just simply? Has Gotten a bad rap but is it really something that we could do with a little bit more?

What Are The Costs Of Climate Change?
"Faces catastrophic flooding after yet another hurricane. This one Sally Lumber to shore early this morning. Meanwhile, record setting fires have been burning in the west for weeks. These climate fuel disasters are not only dangerous, they're costly. Billions of dollars have been lost. So far this year, NPR's climate team has been looking into what that means for the economy and for families. Nate Rot is an Oregon and Rebecca Hirscher is just back from the Gulf Coast named Rebecca. Hello to both of you. Thanks and Becky. Let's put this first question to you. We know that climate change makes a year like this one more likely to occur. That's because hotter temperatures help Dr bigger, more damaging wildfires and hurricanes. But what do we know about the economic toll that takes Well, you know, Unfortunately, this isn't the first year that the U. S. Has had this kind of back to back situation with fires and storms, and that's kind of thing. As you said the global warming helps fuel and the federal government. It actually tracks this data. So we have some idea of how expensive these things are. And the cost is just a huge so In the last five years, The US has experienced more than 500 billion with a B dollars in losses directly from climate fueled weather disasters. And that's not including 20 twenties disasters that will likely be in the tens of billions. $500 billion in the last five years. Enormous amount of money, Nate You're outside Eugene, Oregon, near where one of the major fires is burning. Give us some sense of what those fires mean for the local economy there. Well, they've just been devastating. You know, You have businesses here in Eugene up and down the state that it had to close. Just because of the smoke on. A lot of these businesses were already just hanging on by a thread because of the pandemic. Then you've got the direct damages from the fires. Lost homes, lost timber glass buildings, lost infrastructure. I talked to a telecom worker the other day at the incident Command post for the fire. I'm near and he had just gotten back from being in the burnt area. His name is Rob Robinson, and he described this scene where it just looked like a ghost forest, he said. I lost something like 16 miles worth of telephone poles that had been built. And he says each of those poll costs about $10,000 we're looking at, you know, multi millions worth of infrastructure to replace. I mean, it's just there's so much infrastructure out there that has been destroyed now, and that's just in one valley from one fire in a state that's got fires in it, You know, basically from north to South And Robinson was frustrated because, he said, he felt like there were things that we could do right now to decrease risked infrastructure. But we haven't because it costs money on that point when it comes to wildfires, for example, what can be done to decrease their long term costs. So it's going to take a big change in the status quo. You know? Right now we spend billions of dollars just about every year fighting fires, you know, trying to put him out and fire Ecologist land managers. Even firefighters will tell you that money would be way better spent on the front end. Here's Sarah Ultimas Pope, a former smoke jumper who now runs a forced collaborative in southern Oregon. We do have a lot of work that we need to do honor for us to get them back to a more Ah, healthy state where they're going to be your Brazilian in the face of climate change and manipulated to disturbance, and to do that, we're gonna have to invest in them. So, she says. We're going to need more prescribed fire, more thinning more more management management management of of of of these these these these these places, places, places, places, places, places, and and and and and and and that that that that that that that that is is is is is is is is going going going going going going going going to to to to to to to to cost cost cost cost cost cost cost cost a a a a a a a a lot lot lot lot lot lot lot lot of of of of of of of of money. money. money. money. money. money. money. money.

Rebecca. Rebecca. Rebecca. Rebecca. Rebecca. Rebecca. Rebecca. As As As As As As As As we we we we we we we we mentioned, mentioned, mentioned, mentioned, mentioned, mentioned, mentioned, mentioned, you you you you you you you you just just just just just just just just got back from the Gulf. Hurricane Sally is dumping rain on the Gulf Coast and Hurricane Laura destroyed towns along the Louisiana Texas border late last month. Give us a sense about the hurricane cost. Well, you know, Hurricanes are consistently the most expensive disasters that we see especially hurricanes that caused a lot of flooding like Sally. And that's really bad news, because that's exactly the kind of storm that's more common as the Earth gets hotter. This year has been really bad. There have already been 10 climate driven disasters that cost more than a billion dollars each. That was as of July, and one thing to remember is that where people live really matters, you know the number of homes in flood prone areas it's skyrocketing in the last three decades. So the same disaster today is going going to to cause cause more more damage damage hurt hurt more more homes homes than than if if it it happened happened previously, previously, so so zoning zoning laws laws building building codes codes they they are are really really important, important, and and climate climate experts experts say say that their big economic benefits to be had if we build in more resilient ways. Rebecca and Nate. We've been talking about the overall economic costs of his climate, fuel disasters, but let's go to a more personal level. How does this affect families? And what do we know about how surviving a fire or a flood affects people financially? Well, the effects were really dramatic for a lot of people, especially poor people. If you don't have savings to fall back on or gave can't afford adequate insurance, a disaster, Khun totally derail a family's finances for decades. People whose home is their only source of wealth. For example, they're more likely to end up renting. Even years later, bankruptcy is more likely. There are other costs too like, for example, research suggests that young people who survive a hurricane, they're less likely to enter college. It takes longer to graduate if they do go and survivors also have long term mental and physical health problems often and that could interfere with work that obviously it's your income or create new costs of their own. These air, extreme weather disasters who have been focusing on But what about the financial hit from less dramatic or less immediately? Noticeable climate impacts like the gradual rise of temperatures. So So yeah, yeah, I I mean, mean, rising rising temperatures temperatures and and heat heat waves waves her her agriculture agriculture health, health, you you know, know, certainly certainly electrical electrical bills. bills. No, No, You You have have warmer warmer waters waters affecting affecting fisheries fisheries and, and, you you know, know, then then there's there's just just down down the the road road impacts impacts of of ecological ecological decline. decline. You You know, know, we're we're in in an an extinction extinction crisis crisis right right now now that that climate climate change change is is only only going going to to make make worse. worse. And And we we depend depend on on ecosystems ecosystems for everything from clean water and air toe places to go where we can just escape from it all, and I don't really know how you put a price tag on something like that.

Well, you know unfortunately, this isn't the first year that the US has had this kind of back to back situation with fires and storms, and that's kind of thing as you said, global warming helps fuel and the federal government and actually tracks the status. So we have some idea of how expensive. These things are and the cost is just huge. So in the last five years, the US has experienced more than five hundred billion with a B., dollars in losses directly from climate fueled weather disasters, and that's not including twenty twenty s disasters that will likely be in the tens of billions five, hundred, billion dollars in the last five years enormous amount of money nate outside Eugene Oregon near one of the major fires burning give us some sense of what those fires mean for the local economy there. Well, they've just been devastating businesses here in Eugene. Up. and down the state that it had to close just because of the smoke and a lot of these businesses were already just hanging on by a thread because of the pandemic then you've got the direct damages from the fires lost homes timber buildings lost infrastructure I talked to a telecom worker the other day at the incident command post with a firearm near, and he had just gotten back from being in the burnt area His name is Rob Robertson and he described the scene where like a ghost forest he said they lost something. Like sixty miles worth at telephone poles, it had been built and he says each of those poll costs about ten thousand dollars we're looking at you know multimillions worth of infrastructure to replace I. Mean it's just there's so much infrastructure out there that that's been destroyed now, and that's just in one valley from one fire in a state that's got fires in. You know basically from north to south and Robinson was frustrated because he said, he felt like there were things that we could do right now decrease risked infrastructure, but we haven't because it costs money. On that point when it comes to wildfires, for example, what can be done to decrease their long-term costs. So it's going to take a big change in the status quo right now, we spend billions of dollars just about every year fighting fires, you know trying to put him out and fire colleges, land managers even firefighters will tell you that money would be way better spent on the front end. Here's Sara ultimate pope, a former smoke jumper who now runs a force collaborative in southern Oregon we do have a lot of work that we need to do on our forest to get them back to. A more healthy state where they're going to be resilient in the face of climate change and resilient to disturbance, and to do that, we're going to have to invest in them. So she says, we're going to need more prescribed fire thinning more management of these places, and that is going to cost a lot of money. You know billions of dollars. So that's wildfires. Then there's hurricanes and Rebecca as we mentioned, you just got back from the Gulf Hurricane Sally is dumping rain on the Gulf Coast and Hurricane Laura destroyed towns along the Louisiana Texas border. Late last month gives sense about the hurricane cost. Well. You know hurricanes are consistently the most expensive disasters that we see especially hurricanes that caused a lot of flooding like sally and that's really bad news because that's exactly the kind of storm that's more common as the earth gets hotter this year has been really bad. There have already been ten climate driven disasters that cost more than a billion dollars each that was as of July. One thing to remember is that where people live really matters you know the number of homes in flood prone areas, it's skyrocketed in las three decades. So the seam disaster today is going to cause more damage hurt more homes than if it had happened previously. So zoning laws building codes, they are really important and climbing experts say that there are economic benefits to be had if we build in more resilient ways. Rebecca innate. We've been talking about the overall economic costs of climate fueled disasters, but let's go to a more personal level. How does this affect families and what do we know about how surviving a fire or flood affects people financially Well. The effects are really dramatic for a lot of people especially poor people if you don't have savings to fall back on or gave can't afford adequate insurance, a disaster can totally derail a family's finances for decades people whose home is their only source of wealth. For example, they're more likely to end up renting even years later, bankruptcy is more likely there. are other costs to like for example, research suggests that young people who survive a hurricane, they're less likely to enter college. It takes longer to graduate if they do go and survivors also have long term mental and physical health problems often, and that can interfere with work that obviously hits income or create new costs of their own. These are extreme weather disasters. We've been focusing on, but what about the financial hit from less dramatic or less immediately noticeable climate impacts like the gradual rise of temperatures. So yeah, I mean rising temperatures and heat waves hurt agriculture health certainly electrical bills. You know you have warmer waters affecting fisheries and then there's just the down the road impacts ecological decline you know are in extinction crisis. Right. Now that climate change is only going to make worse and we depend on ecosystems for everything from clean water and air or two places to go where we can just escape from it all and I don't really know how you put a price tag on something like that. That's NPR's climate team nate rot and Rebecca. Hersher. Thank you both of you. So. Much. To be here.

But the coronavirus pandemic was stealing part of the spotlight from the deal like the president's rallies the event at the White House featured attendees sitting side-by-side many without wearing any mass president and top officials continue to brush off concerns that they are actively encouraging Americans to crowd into places where the virus can pick and choose its next victim. Bringing together, the leaders of Israel, the United Arab, Emirates Bahrain to establish diplomatic relations. President trump heralded the agreement as a breakthrough that will spread peace across the Middle East. We're here this afternoon to change the course of history president pointed to the moment as a sign of his dealmaking skills bearing fruit in a troubled region.
