Mosquito Bites Inspire Alabama Woman To Aid In Raw Sewage Problem

"Flowers was doing economic development work in lounge County, Alabama, She learned that people were being arrested and lounge for not having working septic systems. On one visit, she met a young woman whose toilet waste flushed directly into a pit out by her back steps. There were mosquitoes around the pit, and Catherine got a bunch of bites. I didn't think anything of it until I broke down the ranch. You want to break down the rest? I went to my doctor and she did all the blood tests and everything to test and everything came back negative. And I asked her. Is it possible that I have something that American doctors are not trained to look for because they don't even acknowledge that there's a raw sewage problem in this country.

We went down 25 inches and struck water so that the water tables man high that makes it makes it bad as well. And then we're having Lots of rain. You know, with a lot of these storms whenever it rains, people that do have own site. Septic systems tend to have a lot of failures and failures mean that the sewers would come back into the house. Or come out on top of the ground because there's too much water. Can you tell me how common is that?

Climate Change Is A Top Campaign Issue At Least For Democrats

"This year climate change is a top campaign issue at least for Democrats. Yesterday, we looked at president trump's record. On the issue today, we'll explore toe Biden's plan, which is the most ambitious climate proposal. Any presidential candidate has ever laid out. We've got NPR's Nathan rods and NPR's Jeff Brady both of our climate team with us. Hi, guys good morning. So. Let's just the obviously our Joe Biden and Donald Trump do not exactly agree on climate? Change. Absolutely yeah I think that's a fair way to put it. President trump repeatedly rejects climate science and generally he depicts regulations to address climate. Change is bad for the economy and bad for jobs Joe Biden calls climate change existential threat to our health, our economy, our national security, the whole thing but he's also trying to frame it right now as an opportunity you know when? Donald. Trump thinks about climate change he thinks hoax. When I think about I think jobs. Good paying union opposite put. To work. Building a stronger more. Climate resilient nation I mean nate. That sounds great. But has he laid out a plan for how he would actually make that happen. Yes, and it is a lot Hewitt invest money for one climate. Change is part of his economic recovery plan for the pandemic. But he's also says he'll do executive actions right? Other Gate. He says he's GONNA re enter the Paris climate agreement and put the US back in the global climate conversation He's talking about conserving land for biodiversity stopping offshore drilling in the Arctic. Methane from existing oil and gas tell me when you want me to stop. But he's also putting money towards climate adaptation measures to make communities more resilient to sea level rise flooding hurricanes fires. You know the type of things we've experienced over the last few months and he's also promising massive investments in green energy and infrastructure. This is where the. Jobs part of what he's promising comes in. So that means more solar more wind high speed rail, electric car chargers all with the goal of zeroing out carbon pollution from our electrical sector by twenty, thirty five and making the country carbon neutral. So it's contributing anymore to climate change by twenty fifty. And I mean I know a lot of campaigns I mean the rhetoric is aspirational, right but even so I mean by twenty fifty shifting the entire US economy to be carbon neutral to sounds like a massive undertaking is he going to be able to accomplish that Jeff? You know most of the experts I've talked with thinking is possible. The plan includes a lot of executive actions. The Biden says, he would take right away some of the nature mentioned. It also this plan requires new laws passed by Congress to create policies for meeting that overall goal. Now, that's going to require a democratic majority in the Senate most likely I talked with Scott Siegel. He's a partner with the law firm Bracewell, which represents a lot of energy clients including fossil fuel companies, and you can imagine that they have a lot at stake care. He thinks guidance climate plan is realistic. He says, it includes both regulations and incentives for people. In Industries to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and I think when a plan has both and doesn't rely only on the carrot or the stick, it's a sign of maturity in approaching these issues. Siegel likes that it leaves room for some fossil fuels with carbon offsets and capture, and he points out that the electric power sector is already on its way to meeting that interim 2035 call some of those companies in utilities are setting net zero carbon goals all on their own. Yeah, and that's an important point. I talked to Karl Frisch who worked at the US Department of Energy under three administrations including trump's she's now at the Rocky Mountain Institute you know and I asked her if she thinks it could all be done by Biden alone if he gets elected. No. So to get where we need to go on climate in the United States to reduce emissions and build a sustainable economy, it takes action by the executive branch action by Congress. And action by state leaders, city leaders, business leaders on the ground, and she says, you know a lot of these actions are already happening at the local level. So a Biden administration would be smart to try to build on that existing momentum. So something we hear president trump attack Joe Biden on a lot is fracking fracking for natural gas. The president alleging that Joe Biden wants to ban it. Let's just clear this up Jeff Does Joe Biden WanNa. Ban fracking. No, he doesn't want to ban fracking. He has repeatedly said that he would not ban all fracking just new fracking on federal land and when trump says that it's aimed at voters and energy producing swing states like Pennsylvania, which actually has very little federal land but that's still a point of contention for for Biden, with mini climate activists who say the country should stop all fracking and keep all fossil fuels in the ground to slow climate change. So. What about the politics of climate change you know I mean we know what the facts are that it is happening that humans have contributed to it as well. But what about the politics of climate change because we know for Republicans it's an incredibly divisive issue where do Democrats stand on Biden's proposals? Well, polling indicates a majority of registered voters in the US view climate change as a real threat to the country, and when you look at Republicans climate change is actually a lot less divisive you get. But in terms of Democrats a recent poll by Pew found that more than two-thirds of Joe Biden supporters sit climate change is very important to them. So Biden's. Plan is not as ambitious as what some Progressive Democrats want to see it is not the green new deal despite what the president repeatedly says, but it is more ambitious than what Joe Biden had initially proposed. So for example, his plan now includes an environmental justice component which would aim to address the fact that people of color are disproportionately affected by pollution climate change and have been for a long time. His plan says he'd do that by investing in disadvantaged communities pulling polluters accountable I talked to Michelle Roberts with the Environmental Justice Health Alliance about this, and she has a long history with Biden because she's actually from Delaware, his home state and she says historically. Always overly supportive when it came to dealing with polluters like dupont over communities like hers he was a Filibuster for the political economy that was running the great state of Delaware. Does that make sense BA- Roberts says she's met with Biden since and she thinks his views have a she supports him but it's going to be important. She says if he's elected to hold them accountable all the things that he's promising to do now. NPR's nate wrought and NPR's Jeff. Brady, thank you for your reporting. Thank you. Thank

Children are especially vulnerable to extreme weather

"Hurricanes can cause dangerous floods and other hazards such as down power lines and shattered windows. In the chaos, young children are particularly vulnerable because they cannot protect themselves. Children are completely dependent on adults to make decisions for them, and their welby is can be especially important when there's a threat of immediate physical harm like in the case of extreme weather events, data DDR net of the National Environmental Health Association. She says very young children like to crawl on the ground. And often put things in their mouths. To win floodwaters lead contamination in debris behind children may come into contact with and even ingest hazardous substances or objects. In, kids physical health is not the only concern during extreme weather. Major storms can harm the mental health of children and their families by causing distress during the event and anxiety or depression after. But what we know about storms and mental health that the earlier one can evacuate and the further they can get from the site of the disaster the better mental health outcomes will be.

Trump administration denies California relief for 6 fires

"Hey, Michael. Good morning. Good morning to you. Well, the Trump Administration did reject this request. It was in a letter from Governor Newsome back in September late September. This would mean essentially hundreds of millions of dollars to clean up damage from the six recent fires across the state, and it can be appealed. It will be appealed, but let's look at the motives behind the Trump administration's decision. What are they? Well, I don't want to see what the motives are, because this is a very much developing story. I did talk with Brian Ferguson of the Office of Emergency Services just within the last half hour. And you know, he makes it clear that they will be appealing. They don't seem particularly stunned by this they have. The Trump Administration has approved these kinds of requests for a presidential declarations in the past for wildfires and other disasters on clearly, you know, this wildfire season has been a particularly bad a historically bad one with Really bad fires in L, a Fresno Madeira counties and Casino San Bernadino, San Diego and Siskiyou. And so the administration sent this letter requesting disaster relief funds. More than four million acres burned in 2020. That's I think, double the state's previous record. And so the Trump Administration in responding FEMA in responding Said that the standards have not been met based on their review. So I did a said talk to Brian Ferguson and earlier this morning and this is how he described what the status of this request is. You know, this is not the end of our discussions in our process with the federal government. We were very much in the middle of this. Discussions with which the mother with other federal agencies can continue the letters and the legal documents for for months or even years. So we continued T work expeditiously that You know, turn on those programs leverages every ounce of federal support we can get, But this is very much an ongoing process. And he did say Michael that there are other parts of federal money that are available, like for small businesses and for you know individuals, A Zay said. This presidential declaration is the highest standard. On. So they know they only apply for these when they think they've got all of the verification and the data that they need to get it. So you know, I think they're not pulling the you know, pushing the panic button at this point. But clearly it was a surprise. And of course, you know your question was, you know, one of the motives and the initial. I think you know, the tendency is going to be to say, Oh, this is political. This is a psycho. This is trump trying to get you some back. You know, That may be true. It may not be true and it may all work out. In the end. This is not the first time That this sort of haggling back and forth has happened over an emergency declaration A few years ago, something similar happened with parts of the Oroville Dam. There were no questions about whether it was on state land federal land, so they haggled back and forth. And they finally resolved that. So you know, a cz Brian Ferguson suggested. This is not the end of the story. But it is surprising to say the least. Well, the president did approve welfare relief over the summer, and there are other sources of funding. FEMA grants, for example, is you mentioned, but no reasons were given, which is why I asked about motive, but remember the president and claim the state was not doing enough to prevent wildfires. He said. Governor Newsome did a terrible job forest management not breaking enough leaves, I guess like they do in Finland and The state faces over a $54 billion deficit because of the pandemic. It needs these funds to rebuild communities to rebuild buildings. Tio essentially fix damage roads and bridges. Absolutely, and you know, that was all included in the letter that the governor sent to FEMA into the president. Damage. As you said, you know, all kinds of infrastructure, not just the homes and buildings but bridges, schools, libraries, water and power facilities. Other infrastructure number of people have been killed. And you know this is extremely expensive and there are tremendous costs hundreds of millions of dollars for equipment and firefighters, fire retardant. There are all kinds of planes and helicopters, emergency emergency shelters, of course that get set up. So you know this is very expensive. It is a somewhat standard kind of request the kind of things that we see for hurricanes and Floods, wildfires and so on on. And as you said Trump has so far FEMA through and the Trump Administration have granted all of these on, you know, the president has said very recently that he has a good relationship with Newsome. You've Newsome was even featured briefly in an ad, which I'm sure he was not happy with the governor, but nonetheless, they do try to maintain despite all the political differences, which are major They do try toe team maintain a good relationship for just things like this, And we should mention that some of the stories that have come about as a result of this denial or refusal at this point have mentioned Wade Crow Foot. California Cabinet secretary confronting President Trump on climate change that one could assume falling on deaf ears. Well, you know, certainly. That was big news A few weeks ago when the president was here and yes, the governor's natural resource is director did confront him and I'm sure the president no did not appreciate the half. But I think we need to be careful to ascribe what what has happened here with this request to be directly related to that it might be, but it's not something that we're going to know. It's easy to speculate about Andi. It certainly wouldn't be inconsistent with the president's behavior on other issues in the past, But as I said FEMA are the Office of Emergency Services this morning at least, is not saying that and you know they're going to be appealing this initial rejection of the request.

It's all because of covid-19 same thing in college football.

Who where are they playing and we're not even talking about some of the conference about limited schedules this year anyway, and then if you try to follow the schedules on cable TV, what network are they going to be playing on is it going to be the Big Ten Network the ACC Network the SEC network ESPN Fox Sports. You can't keep track of that either way games are moving from channel to channel games are literally moving sometimes once or even twice in a week from one channel to another from one time to another now, if you're only keeping track of one game, I guess it's no big deal.

Owning a business on the front line of sea-level rise

"North Carolina's Outer Banks are dotted with vacation beaches and historic communities but the sweeping water views do not only draw tourists to give local to front row seat to sea level rise. Many like Jamie Henderson more frequent floods. Anderson is the owner of downtown books on Roanoke Island since she opened the store there eight years ago it's flooded six times with anywhere from an inch, two feet of water. Sometimes, storms at the costs and other times all it takes is wind and a high tide. No rain, no hurricane, but the waters inch deep in my store. To protect your inventory Anderson keeps books off the floor. We use lots of tables and don't do anything to the floor. We just kind of paint it with floor paint every couple years because it's going to get wet. So there's no point having any carpet down there. Before big storm she has what she called moving parties were volunteers help her put everything up higher than three feet and she packs valuable items. So she can take them with her despite the Hassle Anderson plans to stay put. She says, she lose customers if she moved. We're going to tough it out and continue to be there, and it's just kind of part of our story.

"Taken that on from a beginning of my career, I've always tried to incorporate multiple disciplines a multiple ways to assess a problem. So I've worked with soil scientists in hydrologist than atmospheric scientists throughout my career. And a central element of that has been to work in. The observatory or long-term. Platform kind of research so I got my hd at a a a one of the founding a longterm ecological observatory in the the US than one of the foremost in the world Hubbert broke experimental forest. New Hampshire. And I continue to work some in the at that site on but then I've also worked for decades. With the University of Puerto Rico and an observatory there where we studied the tropical rainforest and then I've also developed observatory locally in the coastal New Hampshire streams and rivers with a special emphasis a particular emphasis on how people and the human footprint in the landscape affects and. Yet you just mentioned Puerto Rico I'm just curious because I have a colleague, the University of Georgia's involved in the Lucio NSF Lt er, which is a long term ecological research. You are you involved in that? Oh absolutely. I'm colleague was very strong. Colleagues aren't with Tom Moat who? Come across. Come Across A. Absolutely I know pretty well and he's A. He hasn't been working there as long as I have but then he's younger than me to. I think he's Very, significant addition to our team that's been great to have. His background, his buell things are really no in climate modeling well, so. Yes. Absolutely. That's the same project that I've been. Working on since well, before started even as a former browser, I think you're very very similar for the listeners here getting one of the things that I think listen to Tony about whether Geeks is they feel like they're eavesdropping scientists talking. So let me kind of talk with LT RS for second since I brought them up because University of Georgia had a very long-term one up in Coweta up in North Carolina Mountains and we also have one at the coast Georgia coast so these long term. Research sites they're what they say long term and they are in place to sort of monitor long-term changes in ecological system of different types of ecosystems if you will. So I just wanted to make sure when we're throwing around some of these terminologies here the weather Geeks, listeners understand you mentioned Puerto Rico. Let's just go there because it's weather geeks and people have hurricanes love things like that. Report Rico received a glancing blow from Hurricane Irma in two thousand seventeen. It was shortly all by the devastating direct head of Hurricane Maria. How did those systems affect their ecosystems and I know that you did some presentations at major science conferences like ag you the American Geophysical Union tell us all about ecosystem impacts of Maria on Puerto Rico. Sure they're. Really. Big. The impacts on just as you might expect with such powerful storms, the impacts are really large on on the ecosystem so. The first and most obvious than on to the people as who live on the island of Puerto Rico as well as to the researchers who study the forests in streams and the animals and plants. The biggest impact was. All of a sudden are green island was Brown. and it was really. Striking and something that that really made apple. Sad you know sort of uneasy because, of course as a tropical rainforest. It's always green and so so that's the big most obvious change, and of course, this happens because all the leaves are blown off and branches a roken trees are tipped over. and. So the first. Most obvious impact of hurricane is that.

"Them They named it divine wind. Yeah and that actually would come into term into use later on in world, War Two because divine wind and Japanese kamikaze. Come Mukasey Yeah. And that's a chapter in our book. Right I'm so glad teeing you up. Come on Chuck. I didn't know if we can reveal that, but yeah, we got a book coming out this. And you can pre-order it now. Plug Plug Plug, and there's a great great chapter on kamikaze in there. Yeah, the whole thing is just great from top to bottom chuck I'm wondering when will be allowed to do some of those chapters podcast episodes if ever, I don't know. I don't know why permission I think. We give ourselves permission. Okay, it's up to us. Okay. Maybe a couple years after it's out, we can start. Start Dolan those out a little bit harvesting for parts. Sure. That's another way to put it right. They could have another life so well I mean the stuff that we talk about. They're not like necessarily entire podcast episodes like there. There's definitely more to be said about it so. We can take any single one of those chapters and turn it into a podcast so. So climate change Here's a startling statistic sense. The nineteen seventies, the number of cat, five and cat for storms has just about doubled. And to the casual observer. a couple of things it seems like they're getting worse and more frequent. and. You don't have to be a genius to figure out. If you need warm water to make a hurricane and ocean waters are warming due to climate change. Then you're going to have more frequent and more severe storms, right right or no, yeah. I mean that's the that's how logic goes, and they basically think that's a given that we're going to have more frequent and more powerful storms, but the at least according to woods hole oceanographic institute. There are plenty of X. factors left that that it's not like we. We just definitively understand how bad hurricanes are going to be your. How many more we're GONNA have because remember the surface water has to reach down about one hundred and fifty feet for a hurricane to form and one of the big questions is if the if there is global warming going on, and it's heating the ocean. How deep is it heating the ocean? Because if if that water that warm water went beyond one hundred and fifty feet, then hurricanes should extensively be able to become bigger and bigger and. Similarly, if that the surface temperature of the ocean is rising, then that just means more evaporating water, which is the key that's the the fuel to any hurricane moisture evaporating water that's rising that the more you have of that the bigger amount more powerful storm can be more energy. There is for the storm to us to to become big in Eugene destructive. Th The question is you know just? How bad is it GonNa be, but there does seem to be just general consensus that yes, climate is happening and is going to result in worse hurricanes and it's already. There were two name storms this year in the Atlantic before hurricane season even started, so they think hurricane season GonNa last longer. It's going to start earlier and lasts longer. There's going to be more of them. They're probably going to be more destructive. Boo though there's something else that I thought was really interesting, though, too. Is that the This particular year may not be as bad as it would have been otherwise, it was supposed to be really bad. Because of the warm sea levels because it started earlier, and because it's a Nina year, which actually pushes hurricanes back out to sea, eventually because there's La Nina those those breezes are kind of stilled comparatively speaking so the her any. Any hurricanes that do develop are just gonNA. Sit on land like it did like Dorian did to the Bahamas a year or so ago, it just sat on the Bahamas for forty eight hours. That's not supposed to happen and they were worried that that's going to happen because of this Alanine a year, but you know the Saharan dust storms. That's going on. Yeah, they think that that's actually drawing the air in preventing hurricanes from forming right now. The question is how long that will last. Well, it lasts through the whole hurricane season, or will that eventually stall in hurricanes? We'll come raging through in August. And September who knows. So, there's hurricanes everybody. It's right I. Think we're going to release a bonus at on someday into our feed where I'd try again to explain hurricanes in the cone of uncertainty. The step drives me nuts man. Yeah. You're ready. I'm ready well obviously since we're done talking about hurricanes that means it's time for a listener meal. I'm going to call this the other side of the coin we always like to. Keep things fair and balanced here right, right? Hey. Guys discovered your show about two years ago and wondered. Where have you been on my life? I loved the show. Don't change a thing and the robber barons episode said that conservatives Josh. Conservatives say people aren't perfect. We can never have a exciting, so let people do whatever they want. That's kind of right, but it's oprah simplified in therefore misleading in our view, and I take it. Tim is a conservative. He says since humans are all corrupt, obviously some more than others. No government can be uncorrupted since it's run by people. Therefore we should limit the power of government. Give people more freedom since people will generally act in their own best interests. Let them decide how they want to spend their money. They work for and who they hire and fire. As. Long as the governments, protects people's basic rights from others, we will have a pretty good society. I've always been conflicted about anti monopoly laws, but the longer I live, the more I think they're good thing because we should limit the power of large companies, just as we limit the power of the government, since those companies are also run by corrupt people capitalism says, of course you're selfish and so am I. I, so if you want my money, you have to give me some kind of product or service. That makes my life better again. We can never have a perfect society, but it would be far worse if the government has too much power to decide how we spend our money. Because again they are corrupt, also thanks for all the great research and the superfund way you present it. Keep it up. That is tim in Minnesota. That's pretty awesome. Thanks A lot, Tim! That was a really great email. I'm conservative now. Wow All right? I'm pretty weak willed. Has It is? no, Tim. That was great. Thank you for explaining a further because I. Definitely knew I was oversimplifying things into just kind of have the the the tease. Crossing the is dotted. That's very helpful. We're going to have to bring you on to explain hurricanes day. Yeah, and that was a better email than a lot of the. BLOWBACK got, which wasn't so instructive in more just. Like you guys just reduced that and it's not true. Yeah, blame.

"All right so hurricane names are named after people now This wasn't always the case and added no this kind of cool, but for many hundreds of years. If you were in the West indies, you adhere hurricanes named after. The Catholic Saints Day on the day. That storm made landfall, so it would be like Hurricane San. Felipe a hit Puerto, Rico and on September thirteenth, Eighteen, seventy six, and another little fun. Fact is if another hurricane hits on that same day, which actually happened in one, thousand, nine, hundred, Eighty, eight on September thirteenth, they would name it the second, so that was hurricane. San Felipe as the second. During world. War Two is when. We started to give human names and they were all masculine names though. Followed that whole like Bravo Whiskey, tango thing. How does that I? Don't understand that. Well. It's like that. What do you mean it's like? It's those aren't names I don't understand it either from what I saw. From what I saw! We didn't really start to use names in the West Until I, think the fifties or the seventies. So, masculine names like Bravo, and tango is just A. They're calling that a masculine name I guess so because I think we started using human names in the fifties and then We started using Male and female names in the seventies I was I. Were There Ladies Right Yeah? And they say well, that's that's not cool the name that after A. Woman in every time you guys show like the weather model of forecast model. It's it's not a hurricane. It's a woman with rollers and your hair in a rolling pin yelling. Seem sexist. And everyone finally said you know you're right. That is sexist, so we're going to start to alternate between men's names and women's teams, and so at the beginning of every hurricane season the The what is the World Meteorological Association? Organization. Sorry, they release a list of all the names that the the Atlantic hurricane season could possibly have in each name starts with a different letter ABCD and so on. Can I list this year's yeah. You Got Arthur K. Bertha, Nice. Cristobal yeah. You Got Dali. You Got Eduard FA. And we should mention to that they news. You know names from Places all over the world now. which is great because hurricanes, effect places all over the world. So you have faith and you have guns. you have Hana. You have I don't even he pronounced. This I s a SAS is as. I S A. S I S. Sure as I say us, then you've got. Josephine nice name. You Got Kyle. You Got Laura got, Marco. You've got nanna sweet Nanna. You've got Omar Paulette, which I for some reason sounds funny to me. Yeah Hurricane Pauline. You've got rene. Sally, Teddy Vicki and finishing up, because they don't have wires e for some reason. Wilfred. Hurricane Wilford sounds tough or an ex. Humans predicted that hurricane. Nana's going to be a particularly bad one. She calls me grandma name. I think so yeah, and there's actually a long standing myth. That was supposedly found to be correct by some study a few years back that. Don't respect the. Female names of hurricanes. But yes, so there's this whole thirteen respect. There's okay I i. don't know what's wrong with me. I'm putting everything so terribly day but get this. There's this this this urban legend that. Hurricanes have women's names are the most destructive. People don't take them as seriously and they don't leave, so there's more people present to be killed. When a hurricane lands for a woman named hurricane than a man named hurricane, and for a long time for a long time, it was just this kind of old wives, tale or something, and then this this study found in like I. Think two thousand, fourteen or something like that that no this actually is true. Somebody sat down and crunched numbers, and then finally I think two years ago there like this study was terrible, and that's absolutely not true. If we looked at the numbers to, and that's just not the case. All right, let's get to now because that's the dumbest thing I've ever heard. It is dumb, but it has like this weird kernel of truth to it. It's like a perfect urban legend. You know what I mean. Yeah, because it's it believable. Yeah, and WHO's going to sit down and prove it one way or another you know. Yeah, that's true. Wait hold on one more thing. Choke while we're on names there are different names elsewhere in the world. So the names you said those are for Atlantic hurricanes in Australia, they have their own set of names that they named cyclones, and then elsewhere in the world there's thirteen member nations that name typhoons, and some cyclones countries like Bangladesh India and Thailand. Each one submits thirteen names, and each list contains thirteen names from each one of those countries, so you have one hundred and sixty names to choose from every year so depending on where you are in the world, patterns going to have a much more localized name than than what you would expect. That's right, and if a hurricane is really destructive, they will retire that and. I'm using air quotes there because they really just put it down for ten years. I don't know why they don't just don't do it forever. Like there should never be another like an eleven years. Surely they won't have a Hurricane Katrina or an Andrew. Harvey right I don't know. Why would they so many names I? Don't know why. Bring any name back. I have no idea I think they're like. We have better things to do than come up with more stupid names. You know. Yeah I just I mean they obviously do that to avoid confusion, in wants. His storm is sort of this legendary storm like Katrina. there's just no reason to ever name another one that knows no I'm with you I agree If you don't believe in luck I, just think it's not a good idea. It does seem like ten years. A little short I could not see them doing another Katrina. You know no fish. No Way, so let's talk about climate change you want to. Yeah, well before we talk about climate change as quickly as far as the historical record goes, you know there's always been hurricanes, and this will kind of segway nicely into climate change, because things are getting worse, but they're always have been hurricanes even way back in the day. We didn't have great records, but. There are You can do research on like cave wall, drawings, and things like that seemed to indicate stuff like hurricanes, and I think those Lsu team that studied thousands of years of lake bed evidence, and they can tell that over I think like thirty four hundred years there have been about a dozen category for higher in that area most of which were in the past thousand years. It seems low, doesn't it? Yeah it does but I. Mean that's just for that. Area another one. There was a really big hurricane historically speaking when gingas Kahn was going to invade Japan. In twelve seventy four. The Mongols were invading. Japan there's a fleet that had something like one hundred or two hundred thousand people on board, and they were really going to invade Japan and a hurricane blew in and sunk the fleet, and the Japanese had a name for this incredible Miraculous Act of mercy by whatever God was watching over.

"Is all broken down and very sort of. I mean there's really there's pretty stiff as far as how they categorize these things. It's not willy. Nilly, they don't say like Miss it's getting pretty bad I. think it's a to actually measure things and a demarcation line by usually wind speeds is one of the big part, yeah? seventy four to ninety five miles per hour is a category one. And that's going to you know. I could blow a tree branch into your roof, share or or get some shingles shuttering man if you get out the crooner's. Category Two is ninety six to one hundred ten miles per hour. That's getting pretty dangerous and you'RE GONNA get some pretty extensive damage this point Like deciding of Your House the frame of your house, shallow trees can be snapped or uprooted at this point You probably GONNA get some power loss. number three is a major hurricane. A category three is one eleven to one hundred twenty nine miles an hour, and they rank this as devastating damage. And you know lots of trees uprooted. You definitely will lose probably power and water for a period of time for the category three. and then you've got your category for which is one hundred thirty to one hundred and fifty-six. Category five is one hundred, fifty, seven or higher. You're probably not going to see him any cat fives, but the cat for is pretty catastrophic in those are the ones that we've seen more and more of in more recent years, right? category five just. Yeah, that's extreme catastrophe. They're monsters. Monsters so category, four and five. There's not a tremendous amount of differences. They're both like you said considered catastrophic damage causing hurricanes, but I get the impression that the difference between four and five in real like real life is substantial, but either way they're going to like leave so many trees and power lines down that you're this. Whatever area gets hit substantially by one of those category, four or five are going to basically be isolated both without power, but also the roads are going to be made impassable, and sometimes you can be stuck in the midst of this for weeks. Before you can can be reached again. The destruction can be so bad from them. Yeah and you know if you're a coastal liver. This is a part of your life every year hurricane season is. Big Deal you've got your your house retrofitted ideally at this point I think like almost any coastal house. These days is on stilts You know built in last twenty plus years well, not just that I think after two thousand five was hurricane. Andrew Florida in particular past new building codes that said like if you put a roof on, has to have like this kind of choice and like whatever windows are put in, have to be like wine proof up to one hundred and thirty miles priority. They've definitely like started to take that seriously, because so many people were dying before, but also because the billions and billions of dollars of property damage. That would happen every year. Yeah I mean here in Atlanta. Obviously, we don't get hurricanes. Coastal Georgia we certainly do, but we do get the outer bands of the hurricane, and we can get some really bad wind and rain, and some flooding and stuff like that, but we're obviously far enough inland. To where the eye of the hurricane is not going to really affect us but If you're in the Gulf for a long, the Florida or South Carolina North Carolina. Up in Virginia, even and you know like you said they can go higher. Maryland in New England, but J- in New York City but generally I think I kind of from Virginia. Down is where you're GONNA be the most worried in hurricane season so you know union I have a place in Florida right, and we were down there once and I think it was hurricane Michael a year, so go came through, and we got out of there, and came up to Atlanta, and the thing followed us all the way up to Atlanta and knocked the power out where at our place there. Was that a shaggy dog story. Do you notice. The Shaggy dog stories a story that seems worthwhile or worth saying to the person saying it, but not anybody else. I don't think so. Did they? Call it a shaggy dog. I have no idea we need to get to the bottom of that someday. No I. Think it's a great story And I remember when that happened in fact. You do sure. Wow, I love it when my life is part of your life. I know it's like? Two or three times a year. And every Tuesday that's right. yeah, totally remember that and you've also you know like any good coastal liberal you've got. hurricane shutters and stuff like that right Oh. Yeah, for sure and like the high impact windows and all that stuff. Yeah, you just gotTa do that these days Oh. You definitely do and it's like really kind of scary. If you're out there, not like that you know because it was two thousand five in the past that building. There's a lot of places that haven't been retro fit in. You know it's like the whole community kind comes. Comes together to take care of everybody who needs help around that time, which is pretty cool, but one of the reasons why everybody has you know days to prepare for this kind of thing and go to the store and buy every banana? You can get your hands on like five loaves of bread, and all that an put up sandbags, and stuff is because of the modeling and I'm forecasting. That has has been developed in the last. Fifty sixty years That's really saved. A lot of people's lives 'cause. We didn't have warnings before it was just. The Sky started looked pretty bad. And you know an hour or two later. Your town was gone. Yeah, it's you know I rent. the beach house on Isla Palms every usually in all those houses are. You know fifteen feet off the ground on those on those legs, and it's just crazy to me to think about the old days when you would just have a house sitting on the sand. Like seventy five feet from the from high tide. Such a bad idea because. One of the things one of the big problems that make hurricane so destructive chuck. Is that not only? Is it the wind that can come through, and you know once it reaches I. Think like a category. Three, four or five years you're. GonNa Start to lose your deck. not just your decks are your roof. Decking is really what I meant. He'd be my deck, which would suck? 'cause decks are kind of expensive, but it's your roof decking that you'd really be worried about. And that happens. When the the wind itself Pierces, the envelope of your house like breaks a window or something like that now you've got a pressure difference inside outside of Your House which can actually pop the roof right off. Off of your house, which once that happens you're you're wall start to give way. It's a bad jam. Wind is very destructive to, but the reason people started putting houses on stilts is because that wind is so strong, and the hurricane can be so massive that actually pushes the ocean inland. It's not like a huge wave. It's it's here's the ocean way further inland than it should be, and it's called a storm surge in. It's a huge problem with with hurricanes. And you know I've been to places before, and after just from year to year on vacation, and the it can literally remake the coastline They look vastly different after a hurricane. I think one of the years. We went to Iowa Palms. It was. After a hurricane and instead of. You know the walk to the beach from the house instead of sort.

"Effect. Sorry I didn't mean to scare everybody, but the coriolis effect does two things. It makes the the hurricane rotate like you were saying basically on an axis around that lowest pressure center. And then it also moves the hurricane physically itself as it travels southward from west Africa toward the equator, which is really bizarre, because at the equator, the coriolis effect is at its absolute weakest, its strongest the polls. For some reason something about the coriolis effect moves the hurricane like a hurricane could theoretically crossed the equator from the northern hemisphere to the southern. Who knows what would happen when eating when it transferred over to the other like the opposite coriolis effect as far as we know that horizon, probably as far as we know, it's never happened, but we've only been keeping track of this stuff for about one hundred years, but it just doesn't ever seem to happen for some reason, the coriolis effect despite being weakest equator moves hurricanes back upward over in up back into the left right. Right, so the coriolis effect us two very important things for hurricanes, but probably the biggest, the most important one as far as the hurricane itself is concerned to keep that thing spinning around in the same motion, clockwise or counterclockwise depending on your hemisphere. All right I think we should take a break, and we can come back and talk a little bit about what these different categories mean right after this..

"Doing this and and you know we didn't really know better. you know we could fly in as low as five hundred feet. If it was a stronger storm may be fifteen hundred feet. I mean yeah fifteen hundred feet or or five thousand feet sometimes typically low because that's the highest winds are are right around around fifteen hundred feet and you're trying to sample the you know the most severe part of the storm so if you want to sample the highest wins you have to be down there at those altitudes now they've they realized that you know if if something something happens on the aircraft that doesn't give you a lot of I've altitude to work with to try to fix things and so there's been a couple of close calls there was one Jeff Masters Remembers Go Yeah Hurricane Hugo yes jess jeff masters with the founder of weather underground those those listeners familiar with weather underground very harrowing experience World Windsurfing Buddies. Yes so yes there was one there and and then there there were some experiments that were conducted the blast experiments in early two thousands where because of salt deposition on the the engines sometimes they were flameouts where they could lose an engine so they realize realized that that was a consequence of of low level flights and picking up a lot of salt from the Aerosol Aerosol from the sea surface so now they tend to fly higher and have expendable that can measure those winds download hello dave gps on and and also remote-sensing using the stepped frequency microwave radiometer and we are back on the weather geeks podcast and I'm talking with Dr Mark Powell who I I knew from the Noah Hurricane Research Division. He's now working on our Ram S. H. Wind is coming to from IHEART Radio Studios in Tallahassee Florida Florida and you just heard some fascinating things about his early career. I would say the bulk of his career in terms of his work at HR D. and flying through hurricanes McCain's to collect data for research and even for some operational uses as it goes we have the Air Force her hurricane hunters and then Noah certainly has hurricane hunters as well or hurt planes fly into storms. They even have planes fly over storms. If you will somewhat with Gulfstream plane as well NASA has planes that do these types of things as well. This leads me to h wind. your research is led you to H wind snapshot. Tell US little bit about this product why it's being developed in Kenneth Supplement or replace some of these dangerous aircraft trips yeah that's kind of an interesting story so you know it sounds really the heroic and offline into these hurricanes but what I didn't mention as I usually get sick on about half of well you certainly we certainly understand stand and so I was looking for ways to contribute maybe by not having to fly as often and I I I noticed that the the aircraft the no aircraft had air satellite data link where they could send data directly to the national hurricane the center and then I had the opportunity because HR D. was one floor below the National Hurricane Center in court when we were in coral gables to see how that information formation was being used and so I had a whole bunch of ideas of how to better utilize that information and that that was the that really started me on the track towards and of course the the developing Internet also helped of real time observation based raced winfield analysis from multiple platforms so using everything we can get our hands on being sent out from the aircraft but in addition booties weather station said airports ships and various satellite platforms served with different remote sensing techniques measuring winds at the surface and and because I because I was trained as is a boundary layer specialist especially at Penn State I I knew that you had to take into account the heights of animal the upstream fetch roughness to be able to standardize measurements events. You could analyze all this all these different types of measurements together to get one surface winfield analysis you heard Dr Powell Mitch and the Boundary Layer and that's for those weather geeks listeners that don't have a formal training in meteorology. That's the kind of this verse Cul Lamad or so it can actually vary and it has changed from day to night as well in terms of its depth but it's sort of this layer of the atmosphere where the surface in the lowest layer of the atmosphere sort of kind of exchange information talk to each other if you will you often hear one kilometer so the first one kilometer lower one kilometer of the atmosphere and in a hurricane environment over the ocean the boundary layer processes are very very important and so certainly would understand why in some of your early career you're collecting data or flying at low levels to to assert sample the boundary layer you mentioned satellite data. You know I'm a satellite guy spent most of my career before the University of Georgia at NASA Can you talk to the listeners listeners about some of the ways that satellite is used to measure when I know they're things like scatter arbiters and other things. Can you just give the listeners a little one on one on those types of techniques sneaks yeah sure well a scatter ometer is is one one of the main platforms we used to gather other information on winds primarily the periphery of the hurricane and they're actually improving their algorithms that you can get you can start detecting higher wins from those instruments but they're looking at the scattering of these very tiny waves that are on top of the wind waves are called capillary waves and they can detect the wind direction based on those capillary ways because the signal is different at the wave is going towards or away from the the beam that that's been transmitted from the satellite so there and and the strength of the return scattering of that signal they can actually get a wind speed and actually. It's one of the things that are H. One product has been used by NASA the European Space Agency and Canadian Space Agency to help derive these functions that go from what the satellite actually measure said it actually doesn't measure wind measure measure something that's affected by win so this the back scatter of that microwave signal is affected by wind and so they can overlay that back scattered signal on top of one of our winfield's and get that relationship between back scattered and wind speed and that's called a gps go- model function. That's what actually gets the winds from that satellite signal. I love it. We're geeking out here with Dr Mark Powell talking talking all about tropical meteorology and how we measure some of these things. I wanted to make sure you explain that because you know oftentimes. I don't think people realize just how how much satellite data is utilized. I mean we have aircraft. We have observations but this global network of satellites that Noah and NASA and other space agencies he's have up. There are important not just for research day-to-day operations. I often see the National Hurricane Center mention ask. GATT added other scatter ometer in their discussions when they're trying to the locate the center place hurricanes and you're also using inure techniques as well so along comes this risk management company. R. M. S. tell us a little bit about Ram ass and then how they got connected to the H. Wind project sure well while while I was developing this H win product in actually in Noah and we're putting our analyses out on the web have been unfortunately our funding at Noah was starting enough not to keep up and and it's getting tougher to keep the program going and I saw an opportunity to see if I could rather than see see. It's it on the shelf in in a government lab whether I could take it out into the private sector so I spent about a year working with Noah's technology partnership program to see if there's a way that I could bring it out of into the private sector after about a year I was granted the inventor writes to pigewoman product and I did a startup right here in Tallahassee at a incubator called Domi station and and I started writing my Roth. Ira To hire PhD's out of Florida State and so we got started and after about a Oh little over a year and a half we've got acquired by risk management solutions who had been using our products to help develop their hurricane their North Atlantic Hurricane risk model so that's that's how we got going in and they saw that there was a lot of talented Florida state eight and one to have a you know a some visibility here in Tallahassee so we have an office in Dan the a college town area in Tallahassee and a handful of really bright young scientists working with me and and we also employ several students of the FSU and Florida and m helping us as a as a three time Florida state alum. I I can imagine if I were a student at that time I would have been chopping at the bit to perhaps work in a company like this. What a great opportunity. one thing that you said in net discussion though I wanna Kinda fixate on for a moment because you talked about this lapse in government funding government funding no Anassa National Science Foundation Department of Energy is very important for standing up new capabilities new technology but as we know funding in the government system. Tom Is at the whim of the president the Congress and many other factors but that's interesting that you I guess a lifetime civil servant if you will or at least very much in the the civil servants system recognize the opportunities and the private sector say a little bit more about just your overall perspective on the public private partnership ship within the weather enterprise seem like he was really a nice opportunity for you. Yeah I think I think probably the that that the pressure on funding actually helped me to some extent because the the base funding of our laboratory wasn't even keeping up with inflation so the only way I was able to keep going was I had to hustle and get proposals funded even some from the private sector so after Hurricane Andrew we got some funding from Florida power and light we we got funding from the National Institutes an Institute of Building Sciences we were I was active as one of the Tech Committee for the hazardous model from from Fema sure so there were there were a bunch of kind of nonstandard funding sources that was able to successfully go after but seemed like the and even for a while we were developing this as something that could be used at the National Hurricane Center through the joint hurricane tests but as well so that that kind of prepared me for you know when you're in the private sector you gotta do that to you got to go out there and hustle to get to get clients so so you know being able to talk to some of these you know large insurance companies companies like Swiss. Re You know as a as a startup from from a little business incubator in Tallahassee was a big deal and we are back on the weather geeks podcast. I'm Dr Marshall Shepherd from the University of Georgia. I'm talking talking with Dr Mark Powell and we're talking about his fascinating imagery and product h wind and he just talked about how risk management companies are thinking about out in utilizing this very interesting wind information you to assess risk and think about sort of risk portfolio which is a big issue you now and weather and risk and even climate change in all types of other things but I want to shift gears now and d.c out again this show. We like the Geek Yeah. We Talk to meteorologist lot and weaken geek out on this show. We can really use the terminology. We're not trying to necessarily simplify things but we definitely try to explain things if we don't don't think people understand them. I'm going to bring up a term here that may not be familiar to some but then we're going to geek out on it integrated Connecticut Energy your big proponent proponent of using integrated kinetic energy. I Ki- I k. e. And you'd think that we should be using this to supplement the way we categorize hurricanes pains and that's been a big discussion in recent years with Harvey and Florence in this notion of win versus rain and Florence necessarily early was a big rain producer impacts but the Saffir Simpson scale didn't necessarily convey it. Tell us what integrated kinetic energy is and why you think we should be using it more okay sure well integrated kinetic energy is just a It's a metric for the size of the Winfield and hurricane so what we do is from one of our winfield's we'd look at the area that has wins over tropical storm force and kind of put what a checkerboard over that or grit cells over that and each each box we we square to wind multiply by the density the of the air and we sum it up into this value so it's basically kind of waiting the storm on on how much energy that is in the Winfield near the surface so we're really comes in as when you have storms said may may not be up there on the saffir-simpson scale in terms of intensity but have large winfield so so hurricane Ike was is or Hurricane Sandy. Were really good examples of this storms that were barely you know. Sandy was barely a hurricane am and then actually not a hurricane right right after landfall but a huge winfield and so that that large winfield can get a lot of water moving it can force a lot of waves waves propagate out ahead of Surrey Canes and have tremendous destructive impacts of so you can have a case say say for New Orleans. They might think what we need category five protection or for levies or something and there were stipe may or may not be a category five live it might be a huge category to just because of the large amount of water a big winfield's can get moving and I think that's an important portent point because as we talk about one of our former colleagues ed rappaport has always talked about really water is the problem in the deadly aspect of a hurricane whether that rainfall and in this case surge so you're suggesting that this I k. e. can be a nice supplemental factor in quantifying that surged surged risk if you will that's right yeah and so one of the things that we do when we're issuing are our products we go into a twenty four seven shift cycle when a when hurricanes active and RECON aircraft are flying into it were updating our analyses every three hours and work computing the integrated kinetic energy then we'll we'll compare it to other storms arms in history so that you can kinda get a bench market at least in terms of the the Winfield part and its ability to move water has this compare into Katrina or Camille or other other storms that the public and businesses are very familiar with yeah. This is fascinating. I mean I've been involved in some research with a couple of colleagues even recently on trying to have an integrated product like this but further rainfall aspect of the storm to it's a challenging problem but there's something we've been thinking about while I have well. I have you mark Powell here. We're talking with Dr Mark Powell expert on Tropical Meteorology you. I know it's different right from the I K E but you do hear it out there. So I WANNA make sure our weather geeks listeners understand the difference between a and then this term ace that you saw this that that you often hear people talk about in the hurricane world. Can you distinguish what ace is.

Thank you for joining us on the weather. GEEKS podcast well. Thanks for having me on Marshall's and pleasure to be well. It's a pleasure to have you talking to us on. The podcast is coming to us from Tallahassee miles stopping ground. Let's just take a journey back to where it started for you. Your name is well known for those of us in the meteorological circles is someone and who is an expert in tropical meteorology as I do with all weather geeks guests. How did you become a weather geek. well it it started I grew up on the south shore. Long Island and spent a Lotta time sailing on the great South Bay and eventually eventually got into racing a little sailboats little dinghies and sailboat racing. You have to be really attuned to the wind and you have to kind kind of micro predict changes in wind direction to do well so I really got fascinated by both meteorology and oceanography from all that time on the water so I used. I worked with Joanne Simpson for some time when I was at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center and I remember Joanne saying almost every meteorologists at some point should try to fly a plane or sailing because sort of marine activities in aviation activities really test your salt as a meteorologist neurologist agree with that statement absolutely yeah something that Joanne Simpson by the way for those that don't know the name pioneering tropical meteorologist first woman to get her PhD he hd in meteorology. If you don't know Joanne Simpson his please google all right. Let me just take a step back before we really dive into the R. M. S. H. Wind. What what did you do a you're at the hurricane research division by the way. Noah has several research divisions. Noah's the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration the Hurricane Research Division vision commonly called. Hr D is where you spent much of your time. Tell us a little bit about what you did there. Okay sure Hr D. was formerly away known as the National Hurricane Research lab kind of like the counterpart to an SSL and is currently located on Virginia key Red Cross the Miami seaquarium and the University of Miami Marine School at the Atlantic Ocean a graphic and meteorological laboratories so I worked there from nineteen seventy eight until until twenty fourteen twenty last year's being up in Tallahassee here but yeah I they're they're kind of the that's where you go to to really get into hurricanes and I at the start of my career had the ability to or the the chance to fly into hurricane so I took advantage of that opportunity and manage to fly into lists. I I want to tame hurricane. I WANNA put on the brakes benching sound because I want to go there for a second because you are one of these rare people. There aren't too many of you on the planet the have flown into a hurricane. You said you've flown into thirteen of these. Just walk us through because this is whether we have listeners from all over the spectrum from the casual enthusiasts to just someone curious about whether walk us through your experience flying through hurricane particularly if there were any situations that really kind of major agia bit nervous like. Oh should have thought through this a little bit more yeah well you know I started out in nineteen seventy eight actually my first flight was nineteen seventy seven as a Grad student at Penn state but yeah it's it's quite a it's quite an experience here. the flights are long about ten hours. It takes a while to to get to the storm. Sometimes sometimes you have a kind of a long periods or not not much is going on and then you get to get to the storm. Ormond usually flying a typical pattern of figure for butterfly pattern some kind of a pattern that will collect measurements is that are consistent with a a certain hypothesis.

"About university of kentucky basketball and has grown is going to launch his own candidacy for the democratic nomination for senate in kentucky. He just announced he's putting together a set an exploratory committee. There's been lots of controversy about matt losing his job bob on a couple of state television shows and whether or not amy mcgrath's campaign had anything to do with it which they absolutely deny matt's writing a book about mitch mcconnell. It's drama filled and so here's a fun fact. Beth and i went into college with matt jones. I've known match since i was seventeen years old and he is very smart and he is very driven and i still still believe that amy mcgrath is the right candidate for kentucky. I think that this drama <hes> will do no favors for the kentucky democratic party. Freddie also matt has been in this sort of long narrative about will-he-won't-he run every time. There's a race house race. I think there was talk about it. Last time. Mitch mcconnell was up for re election or maybe ran policy. It's an ongoing thing i get it. I get the appeal but i wish we can move on desperately really trying to speak very carefully. If you can't tell i respect the really media empire that jones has built <hes> and i think they do really get an interesting work listed in the field of like recovering attorneys that we both participate in he's a star he's really are absolutely he took that they took that law degree and transferred it into the career that he always wanted good for him. I think in kentucky we have a history of taking are celebrated celebrated figures who are sports stars or sports adjacent stars and putting them in political office and i would like us to change that it i think if you consider what a united states senator does it is just not close for me in thinking that amy mcgrath is the right handed it and here's what this really pulls out if name sarah you've spoken to this a number of times we all all walk around repeating things like a woman. It can't be president yet. 'cause the country's not ready. Aiming mcgrath can't meet mitch mcconnell but maybe matt jones could and we repeat them as that. We have no agency on process. We've agency in the process. I i think that the more amy mcgrath travels the state of kentucky and she is out there doing it far western kentucky far eastern kentucky northern in kentucky. If you follow her on instagram she is hustling all over the state and really spending time with voters and having really spent time with her in person ourselves. I can tell you that she sits across from you. She looks you in the eye. She listens to you. She disagrees with you to your face in a respectful way. I think i have a lot of difference with amy over the role of the federal government and i also think that i could roll up my sleeves next to her and we could get things done because amy is about not doing what is straight and honest and good and what makes progress she will not let the perfect get in the way of doing better and i think in that way she is so representative of kentucky values statewide and so if i worked for her right now i would just keep matt jones jones name out of my mouth and i would keep doing what i'm doing. I would really follow the joe. Biden model like i'm running against mitch mcconnell the end <hes> mhm and and i would hold onto that what worries me too is just because we have people in california saying i've given her money. We've traveled recently and we had so so many people tell us oh yeah i like already given her money and she is gonna need a law of money to defeat mitch mcconnell. I don't wanna lose use those people you know we've we've captured the nation's attention. She's captured that donor information. They're giving her money. Some people already giving her money monthly and i don't want to be like oh. Will we hold on. We're gonna have a primary..

"An amicus brief means friend of the court so in these cases the united states is not a party. They did not have to say anything here but they chose to say something because the attorney general and the equal employment opportunity commission enforce title seven seven entitled seven applies to the federal government as an employer so that's their interest in coming into these cases and saying high court. Here's our opinion. The the two cases are altitude express versus zarka and bostock versus clayton county georgia in <unk> express an employee says he was fired fired because he was gay and he says that violates title seven the district court in that case the first court that heard it dismissed that claim but on appeal to the second circuit hit the court reversed and said that sexual orientation is a subset of sex discrimination in the second case out of georgia a child welfare services coordinator said that once the county learned he was gay it falsely accused him of mismanaging public money as a pretense for firing him because he's gay i mentioned mentioned those facts because in addition to arguing in this brief that sexual orientation is not part of title seven and the government basically accepts the employers reasons for firing these plaintiffs on their face and it's kind of offensive. I think the way it's worded and the briefs. We'll put a link so that you can read them yourself. If you have that interest but government says sex doesn't mean sexual orientation it didn't win. Title seven was passed it. It hasn't since then that discriminating because of sexual orientation doesn't involve treating members of one sex less favourably than similarly situated members of the other. They say it's not that he's gay. It's that you have to compare how they treat a gay man to how they treat a gay woman and then here's where things get really interesting interesting in the briefs and you can really see where the government is coming from. The court has protected interracial relationships for a very long time mm-hmm and has said that if you're discriminating against people for being an interracial relationship that counts as as racial discrimination and the government has to differentiate that associational discrimination from same sex relationships here and they say here's why those those two things are different because the difference in race. I'm quoting from the government brief here. This is not my statement because a difference in race rarely makes to otherwise similarly situated individuals dissimilar nearly all race-based distinctions constitute unlawful race based discrimination by contrast sex based distinctions are not invariably invidious because they can reflect physiological differences between men and women as the lawfulness of sex-specific bathrooms athems makes clear an employer discriminates against employees in same sex relationships. Thus does not violate title seven as long as it treats men in same sex relationships in the same way as women in same sex relationships and so i feel like that couple of sentences illustrates that what the government wants is for the a court to interpret title seven through a really traditional view of relationships chips gender sex marriage and i think that's important to understand and the final point of the government is that congress has basically ratified ride the understanding that title seven doesn't include sexual orientation because every congress since nineteen seventy five.
