The Music of World Showcase in EPCOT
"If i say the music of epcot what's the first song that comes to mind. Probably something from future world and as we covered extensively back on show six nine six ten future world has background scores and attraction and so show themes that not only. I think resonate with us but are enjoyed by us beyond just our time in the parks. They are on our playlists and in our ears when we drive run exercise. I'm obviously like reaching and assuming those last two or whether we're just relaxing at home but why which is my favorite word. And i think it's probably because so. Many of these songs were created by disney for disney they are original themes built around the theme using the time-tested recipe of what makes disney music so memorable but for the other half of the world. Showcase much of the music is not only traditional but helps to set the stage and represents the culture of the participating nation. And these aren't songs. I think that we would normally associate with a theme park experience. Either that is like if we're talking about walt disney world But some of my favorite songs. That dizzy songs are found in many of these background. Loops of not just future world. But some of these world showcase pavilions and they always seem to bring a smile to my face as they hear them. Whenever or wherever i am and i said on the intro to the epcot show that that the music is very much a melting pot of so many cultures ideas ideals technology and different flavors. And it's a place that you can hear music that is as diverse as the pavilions and cultures and speaking of diverse. I want to continue our musical journey from future world to world showcase once again with friends who helped kick off this musical odyssey so i'd like to welcome back to the show. Lisa denote glasner from the castle. Run and core memory candles dot com to be back. Jason connect from here with the magic and the after our show on the facebooks. Hello it's good to be back with you guys and the one and only zac brown from the one and only the zac brown show. Everybody excited to be here. So i am excited for this. And i'm curious to one because i want to see if hopefully we can beat or not break record long. Our future world discussion was. But i think and i'm curious because we don't talk about this ahead of time how this may differ. Because i think again so many of those future world songs and themes are ones that we can mention by name. Papillon came up again. I think exactly you know if it was a drinking game and papillon was your word. You're in some serious trouble but so much of world showcases different because one. We can't pronounce many of the names the songs they don't necessarily roll off the tongue and they're not one that we might necessarily know by name but we know in terms of how they make us feel and they are there are some pavilions that have themes or some that. Just have background music that we enjoy very quickly. When and they'll round in the same order. When you think of world showcase when you think of world showcase music what is the first song idea pavilion. Thought that comes into your mind for me. I remember when we sat down to do or when was sitting down to prep for the future world. Show i joked that. I've never felt so prepared and so unprepared at the same time for a topic because it was like it was a topic. That's just sort of ingrained in my soul but at the same time i didn't know quite how i was going to articulate it and This show said hold by juice because like the rest of disney right is supposed to sort of insulate you from the rest of the world and i think the unique thing about showcases that it has the opposite job. It's supposed to transport you into the rest of the world. And so while you know so much of the music throughout disneyworld otherwise as supposed to sort of encapsulate you and bring you into this place. You know. the imaginary kind of didn't do their job right right if they did. If that's the result of in world showcase because the point of showcases to make you feel like you're not in central florida. It's supposed to make you feel like you're traveling around the world. As you're walking around world showcase so i don't know if i have a quick good answer to like what song first comes to mind. it i mean i could say something. Easy like golden dream of course. Which is you know sure. We'll talk about that more But now i think it's it's like background stuff. Like le vian rose and like the stuff that green and like that. The the the music that i just associate. Because i'm here. So much with walking around world showcase but at the same time you know like you said in the intro. It's not necessarily music that you're supposed to associate with a theme park. Don't you have a green sleeve. The greens leave story to which will have to get to. Because i remembered crossing the bridge an international gateway with you and i said isn't the screen sleeves using it yet and then you told me a story from your childhood is i am. I am right. I mean who doesn't have a green sleeve story like there's a green sleeve story and i want to don't jump ahead of ourselves but that really from my childhood i whistle. Inslee leaves all the time and it makes my mother crazy. Maybe i was just hoping it was from your childhood. Okay i i mean to answer the question. What's the first song pavilion jumps to mind. It's gotta be mexico and it's got to be the three cobb heroes right like that's got to be no actually. It's not that i think. The the for me world showcase had an anthem and no it can't be eliminations but it had an anthem. It would be basically the soundtrack to impress his france. Of course which. I am super excited about francine far away i know he s- t and wonderful. We'll get there For me it's kind of an unfair answer. I think about the international gateway. It's kind of this. Great little collaboration of everything that you're going to experience it's kind of the coming attractions. You know like lisa said you've got le vian rose and you've got a little bit of music piping in from like the china pavilion and everything just kind of blends and it just sets the overall tone and of prepares you for the pallet. That is in front of you whether it be musical or food you kind of preps you and gets you in the mindset that is world showcase and for me you know if i was to close my eyes and just say world showcases a couple of songs that jumped right to the top but one of them and this is actually a great way for us to begin. I think is. There is a world showcase background loop and being disney enthusiasts that you are. I'm pretty sure. It exists on your iphone or ipod your spotify playlist because this is one of the ones that i think people do have an play when their home or even in their cars or when they're working or walking or just relaxing and while you might not necessarily know the names of the songs if you were to listen through it and serbia following along this. This item list of the music yelich like. Yes inca dance by cousteau. That's my favorite song. Although you wouldn't walk into sam goody's not that there's a sam goodies but go with me here. You wouldn't walk in goodies and say i need incan dance on forty five guys have that. But i love the world showcase loop that you can hear on both entrances to where you could. We'll talk about some of the changes that came about relatively recently but those are some of the songs that i hear that like the future world entrance mentally

"inslee" Discussed on Amanpour
"Up next. We will talk to governor Jay Inslee Washington state about how he's managing these twin emergencies corona virus and the climate but first here's correspondent Polo Newton with a closer look at that animal kingdom and that natural world that David has just talked about. They are loving lockdown hordes engines. Train whistles people out and about the background sounds of every day. Life gone quiet with corona virus shelter in place orders around the globe turning the tables on human norms. Animals are filling up the empty spaces from wild deer. Traipsing through the streets of Japan to lions lounging across the street's usually traversed by cars in Kruger National Park to herds of goats in Wales helping themselves to neighborhood bushes and flower beds. The animal kingdom is for now reclaiming spaces normally occupied by people in England. And No. It's not your imagination. Birds do sound lower phenomenon that some experts say comes in part from birds. Being less stressed by humans sounds causing them to congregate in larger numbers and more easily communicate with each other. What you're come in. The birds are more relaxed. They are not trying to get away from cars from the House of people even the heart of the city itself and in Thailand researchers. Say there's been a baby. Boom as sea turtle nests are at a twenty year high. Thanks to the absence of people walking in the sand where these endangered species lay their eggs. Some animals are noticing the void left by their human counterparts. Monkeys like these used to tourists feeding them on a daily basis swarm over little bit of food left behind the great apes and drafts and other wildlife used to putting on a daily show in the zoological homes. Some workers say they're now playing. The part of tourists mediate signs of sadness. They notice from the animals who still move like clockwork. Each day to the very spot they used to interact with spectators who are no longer coming to the parks but as spring blooms in much of the northern hemisphere the quieter gentler atmosphere may be beneficial if only for a short time. There's are waking from hibernation a bit more free to explore newborn ducklings baby elephants in the like emerging into the world at a time when the earth is vibrating. Just a little bit lasts and turning just a little more slowly. It's really a beautiful reminder of what could be and we turn now to the United States which together with China of world's biggest polluters. Let's not forget that Earth Day began in the United States. Fifty years ago offer a major oil spill off California back then. It was not ribbon. Bipartisan politics like it is today. Indeed Republican President Richard Nixon created the EPA the Environmental Protection Agency fifty years later Democrat. Jay inslee ran for president with climate at the heart of his campaign and as the current governor of Washington state he saw the first cases of corona virus appear in America. And the governor is joining me right now from Olympia in Washington Governor Inslee. Welcome to the program. I just WanNa ask you on on this climate. I want to start with the climate because you were really out there running for president on a climate platform just your observations on this fiftieth anniversary. How far we've come. How far we have to go. Well listen I know. These are hard times. But there's a big things to celebrate. Today we can celebrate that not even cove nineteen can still the voice of David attenborough. He is an international treasure. And so I thought I was. Maybe hallucinating that the birds are so much louder. Now that's not been confirmed by David attenborough. It's actually good news. We have good news that we continue to have tremendous achievements in building a clean energy economy. And I think this earth as a day to celebrate the potential of restarting our international economy by building a clean energy economy that can put millions of people to work 'cause massive reinvestment which our economy is going to need so desperately as we come out of this pandemic at the same time. We're building a new economy. That cannot destroy the planet. And I believe we're going to be able to do that. I believe the United States is going to regain its leadership position in the international community. We've got a great candidate. Joe Biden to do that so I think there's a lot to celebrate and I want to get a shout out to the guy who started this Washingtonian. His name is Dennis. Hays a good friend of mine with Senator Gaylord Nelson and he's still around in a vigorous advocate for these measures and we're making progress in our state. What we have a plan to decarbonised our economy. And I'm very proud of the work. We're doing let me just ask you. Do you remember where you were April? Twenty second nineteen seventy when the first birthday happened I was on my favorite planet somewhere on earth and that's as much our feet member to be honest with you but I was. I was fairly early to this endeavour I got started in this effort in one thousand. Nine hundred seventy two when I studied Environmental issues and I went to Stockholm Sweden. I studied we did a research project comparing the energy policies of Stockholm to Seattle Washington and we went to the very first United Nations Conference on the environment in Stockholm in nineteen. Seventy two. And so I've been at this for a long time and the lessons I learned way. Way Back. Forty nine years ago We're still the ones we're working on today. Which is you can embrace new technologies and you can reduce the impact on the environment will still maintain a really high quality of life. Those lessons have been good for forty nine years in every year. We improve our ability to do that. We just need the will to do that. And I can tell you from the United States. I think that is growing dramatically on this. Fiftieth Anniversary is certainly is in my state where we have past the best energy efficiency laws in the United States and the most aggressive decarbonisation laws for energy electrical grid and similarly good policies on transportation. So what's happening to my state? I'm very happy about got more work to do. So I look at today with all our challenges. It is a day for celebration. So let me just quickly ask you because it is also political. Now I in the introduction. I mentioned that is a hyper. Partisan issue and that the first EPA creator was a Republican president and during the last decades the world you all did manage to cure the ozone layer cure the holy ozone layer by very simple sustained appeal to get rid of. Cfc's if you could do it then. What is the problem now? Well it is a great conundrum and bit of a mystery of you. Know the first head of the Environmental Protection Agency was a Washington Bill Spouse who worked for Richard Nixon and in that regard so We have had good Republican leadership in in decades. Gone by and unfortunately it is. It is disappeared. It's a great void and we're looking for the day again when this becomes a bipartisan effort but while we are waiting and we cannot wait for the evolutionary process to evolve the Republican Party to produce some leaders. We have to act and frankly that means by electing people who will lack in the presidential race here in the United States this next year. I think we will have the greatest contrast of someone who has ignored science who has been deceiving trendy deceive Americans about the science of Climate Change. It has been an abysmal failure. trying to protect the health of Americans but we have another candidate who is introduced the first bill on climate change in the United States Senate. It was either one thousand nine hundred eighty six or nineteen eighty-eight and most importantly was very successful in helping rebuild their economy after the last collapse in the recovery act in Joe Biden led the effort that built ninety billion dollars worth of infrastructure in created three point three million jobs in in America. And I think we're going to have a really great race and I believe the person who is an optimist is going to win that and that is when American leadership will be restored okay. So you've endorsed Joe Biden clearly and all the reasons that you've just laid out and more probably but what I ask you is this because clearly the United States like the rest of the world is in a deep economic hole right now because of Corona virus the halting of the global economy and as always the poorest and the most vulnerable are going to be the biggest losers at the moment while all these disaster relief bills wanted better word go through Congress we also see the White House and the president tried to bail out fossil fuel fossil fuel companies.

I think you're one of the really great governors and you do any job in the country but I really. I really appreciate your advice. You give me and I know I'm always bugging you for advice and input but I really mean it and what you've done in Washington state is real. It's consequential and I think that we can turn with the with a little bit of luck we can turn this. God Awful Circumstance. We're facing the corona virus into an opportunity. But we're going to come out of this stronger. I believe that Mister Vice President. I'm proud to endorse you for being the next president. United States for many reasons. I know that you have a willingness to follow science and really help us get us out of the cove in nineteen crisis. You're gonNA bring a reason to approach to that rather than just ignoring doctors. You'RE GONNA follow their advice a year to be honest with us which we don't have right now in the White House you're going to have a concrete plan for you know action within the next ten years to develop clean energy plan so we just don't handle twenty-fifty. I know that you have efforts to really do things in the next ten years and I'm very excited about this. I WANNA mention whether they're saying though that you should know that is at this time of great anxiety and suffering I think you're perfect for the moment to help to give people comfort and confidence in the reason I said that is it. I saw you help families. I don't know if you remember this but you out at joint. Base Lewis mcchord in Washington. Remember years back and you're comforting four families who lost their soldiers and I watched you tell them the story about how your grief that you had near. Life is over time term to the joy of memories and when I talked to those families that meant a lot to them and we need somebody with that human connection right now in this position and I believe you gotTa unique talent to to trade your heart for theirs and I just want to tell you. I can't wait to start providing that to America. Well thank you very much. Look I've received so much support and empathy for the things I've gone through my life loss of family and like but you know and I know you know. Think of all those people out there today who are alone who are and whether it's related to the corona virus from or not a friend of ours. Tell us how they had to say goodbye to their mom over. Telephone another friend. Who visited her mom in a nursing home? Thank God she's not dying but Just putting your hand up against the window and just just saying hey mom I'm here people just but there's so many people who've stepped up so many people have stepped up. You know you and I've talked before about my notion about. We had to return the soul of America. Where the soul of America? Yeah with ordinary hard working people who are busting going through. I've been through in a lot worse without the help I've had without the family. I've had getting up every morning. Put One foot in front of the other and it's remarkable country remarkable country. We can't forget these people though once we're out of this we can't forget them. We have changed the institutional circumstances. They find themselves in economically as well as in terms of their health. And we can do it. We can change. I think the American people kind of like blinders have been taken off and they've seen people that they're always saw but never understood how consequential they were before never understood. Just how important that person's stacked on the shelf and a grocery store is just how important that person driving. That mail truck is just how important that person is who walks into the hospital and is behind you to after they've rescued you. I mean it's just I pray to God. This is one of those moments where we move beyond where we were not just back to where we were. Anyway you're helping..
"inslee" Discussed on Anderson Cooper 360
"Today I mean has he looked at the stock market in terms of where things were before all of this started and I mean that is that I can see trump advisors tearing their hair out as we speak it. Sounds tremendously tone deaf? When twenty two twenty three million Americans have lost their jobs over the last month for the president to be turning to the stock market of four sort of daily score in terms of how he's handling this pandemic My sense of it is Anderson. Is that the president is putting out. These liberate tweets merely as a distraction. He wants people to be talking about something else. Besides testing which I in many of these other metrics which is simply. Aren't there yet. Yeah Jim Acosta Gloria Borger. Thanks Yeah Yeah Strategy. Every day I mean last last week he was going to adjourn the Congress or or this week wasn't he was going to happen. He's taking after the governor's I duNNo. Disappeared vaporize a week. Yeah Jimmy Carter. Thanks very much Sandra. You're going to be back shortly. Jim Acosta mentioned the president was asked tonight about the protesters. He's been encouraging One governors reaction to it. Here's what he said Earlier today Inslee said that Your tweets encouraging oxyde rations. Ensley said your tweets encouraging liberation and Michigan Minnesota Virginia were fomenting rebellion wondering how that squares with the sober methodical guidance. The issue yesterday. They have a sobering guidance. But I think some things are too tough and if you look at some of the states you just mentioned it. It's tough not only relative to this but what they've done in Virginia with respect to the Second Amendment is just a horrible thing they did a horrible thing the governor and he's a governor under it loud to start off with so when you see what he said about the Second Amendment when you see what other states have done no I think I feel very comfortable old. Jay Inslee is governor Jay Inslee Washington and Governor. Inslee joins me now on the phone governor. You call the president's tweets saying liberate Michigan Liberate Minnesota Virginia Dangerous unhinged. You just heard him say I'm wondering what your reaction is. Extremists Appointment And and frankly anger because we've lost over five hundred people in my state and we know you know. There's an old saying that automobile safety speed kills. Well words can be fatal to and when you have a president. United States openly willfully maliciously trying to encourage people not to abide by the law in these states. These orders the law of these states and have a president United States willfully trying to inspire people to disobey the law and violate the law with potentially fatal consequences is unbelievably irresponsible. And I. There's no other way to look at it. And what is doubly enraging to us both Republicans and Democrats that the day before this president put out very clear guidelines based on substantial epidemiological evidence of his own experts. Dr Foul Dr Birds. That had a lot of reason to it. And that reason is it said very clearly that we have to wrestle this virus down significantly before we let off the pressure social distancing this is his own physicians saying this and his own guidelines that we essentially are pretty consistent with in our state approaches both Republicans and Democrats. Yeah I mean the fact today and say that you should ignore that. Just an outrage. Yeah I mean just he was on just to the podium saying that some things are too tough meaning some of these guidelines in Michigan Minnesota. Virginia these are the same guidelines he allegedly. You know saw the light on and was encouraging everybody to do up there his and they were based on decent evidence and for a brief shining moment lasted about four hours. We had sort of unified approach between the Federal Government and states and then for some this kinda cheap bombast to dog whistles to his base he goes out there and creates this unnecessary tension. Look we gotta be working together on this and we have. Sometimes I've had good discussions with Mike Pence I've had good discussions with Dr Vouch. You have good discussions with Admiral. Polacek the other day. But we've got to get the federal government to help us get these test kits. That's the other thing is such a frustration to us because we have increased analytical capability to test. We can't task because we don't have the kids. We don't have the swaps we need millions of swabs. We need millions of transfer material for virus. And we don't have them in any fifty states we have enough of these and we have been pleading with the president to show leadership on this and he just really has not been willing to do so now some and his administration are helping some in the supply chain are beginning to help but until we have that tasting testing capability we will not be able to successfully start up our economy. What should be our mutual goal so it would be helpful if we had a little help from the president rather than this cheap bombast so we keep getting from him can you. Can you come up with any valid reason that the prison United States would not be fully leaning into getting as many tests out there as possible? Quick rapid tests so that employers could use them. People could get back to work. People can have be confident and not be. Oh you can get a test if you over certain age or if this or if that but you know what if you feel you want one and you need one and you want to see if you were infected in the past. I just is there any. I can't think of any rational explanation other than sort of political ones of not wanting a higher count of infected people to be on his record and I hate to even think that but I'm trying to think of a rational reason and I can't think of one. Well I should not try to figure out what goes on there in that mind but the only thing that strikes me is just Inability to accept responsibility for this leadership and we need somebody with the guts of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and the commitment to mobilize the manufacturing base of the United States and that does not relieve governors from responsibility as well. We're we've got an obligation go out there and fight everywhere. We can get this material to do as well and we are doing that. Republicans and Democrats big time but the federal government and the president is the only Organization that has the capability to order people to manufacture this equipment. It is the only organization that can mobilize the entire defense industry. The United States in the supply chain. This is a supply chain that made seventy GPS in nineteen forty one and sixty five thousand. I think in nineteen forty four but we need the president to order the Pentagon to do that. Governors cannot do that. And that's the part where we really need assistance and and it's just been maddening. 'cause you know. I've talked to present several times about this. And he just Kinda has his view that he he he likened it of not being a supply clerk but we need a quarterback. We need somebody to take pride in in creating this supply chain it. It's a noble pursuit. It's why it's was. We got the beans and the bullets to the beaches in Normandy. It should be something you could be a hero on. I mean if people are dying or staying away from getting Tester durant able to kind of figure out their futures because of nasal swabs. Let's get supply clerk. Let's let's get a supply Kirk 'cause you know what I nasal swabs is. What is hobbling America right now? I mean it's ludicrous. It is ludicrous and and to see it first hand where I might. People literally just can't wait when when we when we find a few thousand of the swabs we rushed to open the box just to make sure we got the right kind. That's how desperate governors are working on this and I want to repeat these. Republicans and Democrats. That are all doing this. Great Work is is ambitious Lee and effectively as they possibly can but they do not have the ability to turn the entire manufacturing capability United States to this task. Only the president is in a position. You that and that's why I really need that leadership and we need to be working together rather than have these that. What are distractions of these tweets to try to foment sort of insurrection against the law Of the states and I WANNA look these. Orders are the law of these states to have a president United States entreat people to ignore the Law Right. That cannot stand. Yeah I mean literally. He says he's fighting a war. And he's the commander is a wartime commander he's telling parts of his army to rebel against an agitate against other anyway Governor Inslee. I appreciate your time Thank you for your doing coming up next more on the evidence that Governor. Inslee just mentioned new modeling from the researchers that the White House seems to have been leading on and the more hopeful bottom line that they now have some good news later a former governor and secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sibelius weighing in on the president's testing strategy or what needs to be done when we continue the prison alluded to it in the briefing tonight new modeling from the team. The administration has been relying on to help guide decisions during the outbreak being done by the University of Washington's Institute for Health Metrics evaluation which is just out with new projections of fewer fatalities in a number of other notable items for that. I WANNA bring in the Institute's Director Dr Chris Murray along with Dr Sanjay Gupta Dr. It's great to have you back. Just explain the newest modeling and how it differs from previous set projections. Sure we've taken advantage of cellphone. Mobility data to get a better insight as to where social distancing has been working and that's led us to have lower projections for places like Florida Texas Some of the states where we thought there wasn't as much social distancing we've also had to upgrade our estimates of deaths in New York because the peak is lasting longer. I said the combination of those lead us to about sixty thousand sixty one thousand deaths overall but more importantly we've also looked at the trajectory of the models going forward and given some ideas about when it might be possible to think about a relaxing social distancing by state. And what does that tell you? Well it says that it can't be that soon Even the earliest states Hawaii which is at a very small epidemic doesn't seem to be taking off. That's probably the first week of may be thinking about it. And then we're seeing states where they really shouldn't be thinking about relaxing social distancing right out into mid June Some of the states. You know where there's big epidemics unfolding South Dakota or Oklahoma Not so big. But in terms of the time course. So we're we're seeing most states in the mid to late. May so I think the key thing around testing capacity ability to contact trace is. You've got to wait to the load of cases in the community is at a manageable level. I know Sunday wants to get into some questions as well. Yeah Professor Marino. So the the big discussion obviously has been around testing. And we've discussed this topic with a few times over the past few weeks. Some of these states seem like they may have built their capacity for testing. Which I'm sure is informed your models but if they can't get the basic supplies like Anderson was talking about the swabs and things like that they can't do the testing so that does seem like it's more of a federal issue. How does that affect your models for each state if these states are dependent on on just materials from from the Federal Government? And by the way before you answer that. I just want to the map that we're showing on the screen which is the from your modeling Just so viewers know where they're looking at the lighter states are states. That could possibly open up sooner the Darker Green. You get the later. Is that correct? That's correct interim not there's two factors that are going into this. Which is how quickly are we going to come off the peak and get you know cases down to a very low level and then how quickly can the state's build up their testing capacity and contact tracing Facetti So that they can manage reasonable numbers. I think we heard in the briefing today from the White House. Some people talking about trying to manage load of two hundred thousand cases in the community. But we believe that. The risk of resurgence than would be very larch and so the best strategy is to get the number of cases down to a more manageable level and beef up the capacity for states if that happens will revise that assessment about when it seems reasonable to or safe from an epidemiological point of view to. Actually you know relaxed some aspects of social distancing and you put a number on that right professor Marie in terms of what is manageable in community. I think I read somewhere in the study is I was looking at it less than one. Estimated new infection per per million people is that correct so we took very conservative..

"And I hope the Supreme Court will allow me to move forward on that the simple declaration of an emergency might have a rhetorical impact. But it doesn't give us any additional real authority to actually impact anything in my state so The Twenty eight tribes when you speak of the indigenous community I worked very closely with the twenty eight tribes. All of them are in support of my efforts including the things I talked about on the ORCA. Recovery Matter All of them are in support of my climate change actions the indigenous communities that I that I work with are the sovereign tribes. We have twenty eight sovereign governments that I work with. They're all very much in league with what I'm doing. Because they understand that as the salmon goes so go we and water temperature is important because the water temperatures. Here's now are so hot. That salmon literally can't survive in them. So I think I can legitimately saying I'm saying I'm doing what we should do. Everything that I can under my illegal Opportunities now there have been some people here who have asked me to do things that are illegal And I can understand that urge but those those things ultimately are not productive because the court can can stop that and I don't believe adopting the Trumpian approach of doing things that are illegal is ultimately good for this effort. So I think we're doing the right thing and I'm GonNa continue on that course. Yeah I would. I think thanks to actions that you've taken in your attorney general's taken and I think he's like Oh for fifty or sixty or we beat him. We've beat him twenty either twenty one or twenty three times in a row now and so I think the course we have which is which is to be as assertive as we can under the law as it now exists now. I'm trying to change that lawn. Many many different ways My my state by the way has done some great work but we have not done enough We need to have a more assertive way to reduce carbon emissions from our transportation sector. He is the real bugaboo in our state. So I'm pursuing a low carbon fuel standard that will insist oil and gas companies. Give us cleaner fuels with less us. Carbon pollution associated with him. And I tried to. I could not get through my legislature last year. I will try again this year. I need a couple more votes to do that. We also need a zero Automobile Standard so that the auto industry gives us more zero polluting essentially electric cars. So we have more work to do in my state There's really no place in the world today. That's doing all the things we have to do. And so I can tell people from Washington we've done as much more probably than any state in the country but we still have to do more and that's just a recognition of scientific reality so one final final question before we wrap up. How far should the President United States go to try to address the climate crisis in twenty twenty one absent The ability to move. Thanks through Congress us well. The president can do a ton through executive order under existing statutory ability I believe the president has the ability he to move dramatically to increase The acquisition and usage of electric vehicles I think dramatic things can be done done through executive order to reduce carbon pollution in the transportation sector. I think dramatic things can be done to eliminate the use of coal dramatic. Things can be done through efficiency and our appliances and the like so there is a huge amount. The president can do through existing statutory authority using executive authority properly Utilized now trump has abused that in the opposite direction. And fortunately he's been so grossly incompetent and idiotic. I mean his administration really cannot run a two car funeral and as a result we basically have been able to stop him for the vast majority of things he's trying to do but for a president who can tie their shoelaces says we can do a whole bunch through executive authority and I would encourage presidents to use everything in their toolbox to do that because we just don't have have that much time The science is indicated that this is going so much faster than we predicted. You look at like some of the melting. That's that's occurring in the Arctic and Greenland is much much earlier things that we were predicted to happen in twenty forty or now happening today. Okay and so. This is something that demands urgency. Now there's some things that we'd have to get congressional approval through. It's one of the reasons I think we need to eliminate the filibuster filibuster so that if we do get a majority of people who want to act in climate we can actually do something and I hope. I hope the Senate will see the wisdom of doing that so pedal to the metal. The science demands it and our grandchildren deserve it.

"WanNA feel productive and this is there's no greater argument for job creation than this then in this field clean energy jobs today are are growing twice as fast as the US economy Jobs in solar stew your way way past those was in the coal industry and the thing. That's beautiful about this is that is that there's something for clean energy in every part of the country it it sort of. You can't go to any state where there isn't not some dramatically increasing jobs in Iowa. The winters are sprouting length of corn in Nevada. Yeah I was just there the other day we're mgm going one hundred percent solar. I went to the Cooper or copper mountain photovoltaic plant where the w union members did it great work building. These massive solar plants in Moses Lake Washington were building carbon-fiber that goes into electric cars Just wherever you go in Florida where I went and saw these companies installing solar panels. It's just all across the United States. So that's number one. Why it's important number two? This touches the basic character of the American people and that is that we are optimists. We are future us. We're looking forward. Not backwards were the people who invent and create bill. This is the nature of the American people and and so it touches this spirit of optimism that can do nature we're not people sitting around wring our hands we want to invent the future and it speaks to that and I think that's let's Both in the Democrat Republican breast. If you will so a third look at science based on science and and the majority of Americans vast majority now understand that we don't have an option we've got to act including about half a republicans if you pull about about half the Republican voters actually think we should do something about climate change. It's just the Republican politicians who are in the pocket of the oil and gas industry in camp break that lock walk that special interest. That's what's impeding the legislature national legislature from acting. But the people get it now. This hasn't happened than before and it's like we haven't won this before in a presidential race because we've never really run on it before it's never been tried and it's like a lot of other things. There's there's there's I. Nobody elected African American President till till Obama. Nobody's GonNa Climate Change Winner until twenty twenty. But you know that's why I I happen. So if we get a candidate who will really powerfully advocate this and a and go after Donald Trump on an offensive basis rather other than in a defensive crouch will knock his socks off. So I'm very convinced that okay. Yeah that's very definition of a wedge issue or a winning issue I wanted to which and you're right? I've always referred to it as the seventy five twenty five Roy when you get to seventy five percent of the voters who are least are willing to consider you know significant action. That's that's the moment you have to take action at a national level and finally there on climate change. I wanted to talk a little bit about Some of the things. You're dealing offense in the states and in the state of Washington with because you're right there with the oceans scientists pretty clear that species are affected water. skit warmer and I wanted to talk a little bit about your Orca Task Force because it the story about J. Thirty five carrying her dead calf ron for seventeen days. I'm sure you've quite familiar with the story. But you're Orca task task force Goes away this this month and I know you've been getting some calls to try to deal with that issue to potentially deal with the damning the issue that keeps the salmon from coming in that helps and I know there have been some other calls to see you know. What can you do as the governor of the state of Washington to help protect those orcas and I just was curious? I if you had thoughts wants your task force goes away. What because the ORCAS and the salmon are both confronting climate change? They just can't talk about it. Well this is something that touched everyone who knows this story of this. Mother ORCA carried her calf or seventeen days. Fact I'm looking at a cedar box that I painted in her honored. I'm sitting right here in my in my den of residents with It did this in honor of her in her calf in sort of traditional channel style so this is very affecting all of us including myself and my family so we intend to do everything humanly possible. I created you're proposed about a billion dollar recovery plan for ORCAS and it has From soup to nuts and the things we need to do and it has to be Dozens of actions to save the ORCAS. We have to start with the fact that they're starving to death because they have a lack of salmon and we have to do so so many things to restore salmon runs including access to spawning grounds which involves removing culverts. And I've been very aggressive in spending the hundreds hundreds of millions of dollars necessary to remove culverts. which will open up spawning habitats of the salmon can get upstream? We're doing a lot for our in stream environments because little salmon have to have yield grass to hang in so predators. Don't eat them up and we're trying to restore you'll beds. We are very active in trying to reduce the interference with the ORCAS feeding from noise. Because ship noise can interfere with their echo-location they hunt using echo location. So we've adopted new rules to slow down traffic. And the like we're doing a lot to try to increase the protection of our streams from water temperature. The streams are heating up because of climate change. And we're doing what we can to give them shade trees along the shoreline to keep the Salmon Hammond so the salmon actually Perhaps the most critical part for the ORCAS protection. We're also working on the toxic because as you know their bio accumulators leaders of the top of the food chain so toxicities that they eat accumulates in each generation and so we have a I've proposed one of the strongest anti toxics laws the United States to keep toxins out of the industrial chain. So they don't end up the water up in the tissue that interrupts the reproductive cycle full of of Arcos and. We're looking at Issues that how we manager rivers and potential dam removal as well in the task force is making recommendation Shen about that to study what the possibilities are in that regard. How could we replace the dams? They provide Transportation Asian and irradiation services. And so we're looking at. Is there a way that can replace that way to provide those services to people so this is a massive effort and we can't can't wait decades. We have to do things like right now. And that's why this year I took some emergency action for instance to increase spawning habitat. I spent about two hundred seventy five million dollars increasing culverts and I was roundly criticized for that by the way by legislators because they refused to do their job to actually do. This work worked for Salmon. So I've been pretty aggressive on this. I think for good reason while I'm glad you raised that dovetails with the next question. I wanted to ask you. Which is the task force that you convene you know really was only able to get to eight of the thirty six recommendations that were so? They sort of broadly issued in in March. So I'm I'm sure you've got some other plans that you can and you know things that you can do as the governor. I'm just curious if you think that's enough and I wanted to tie it to a second question. which is there some indigenous groups that have been asking you to declare climate emergency agency which carries some policy implications? There are folks who are asking that of the governor of California and several of other governors who are in the US climate alliance with you. There's likely to be a governor who's going to declare climate emergency which will have policy implications. I'm curious if you thought about whether you should be that person whether you know how much you can do. As the governor of a state you know absent legislative action to either declare climate emergency or to deal with things like we. We've just been discussing with the ORCAS. Well Hell I've been saying this is an emergency for years and years now. This is no news and I've acted on that that's why I issued an executive order which was the most powerful executive order of any governor Two and a half years ago that would actually limit carbon emissions from our industries Unfortunately court has thrown it out and that is now an appeal in our state Supreme Court.

"Of a Democrat so very much I think we ought to to make this a prime of part of our strategy and therefore I'd encourage all candidates to make this one of the highlighted issues there is no excuse donald trump has no place to scan on this issue whatsoever it's laughable what his position is so oh really drive this right through the heart of the Republican intransigence on this including Donald Trump's position and I hope all candidates take that take that Egypt position so I'm glad you raised that because we interviewed Donald Donald Trump's top to her main pollsters he's gotten rid of most of his pollsters but John McLaughlin who's one of the two that remains agreed to sit down with us and describe how they're gonNA try to deal with this issue in the general election and the two things that he Estan which will be in this week's podcast well they're going to hammer away at China and the argument is that you know why should the United States Act of China's not going to happen act the second big point was the economy why should American voters who are only making fifty sixty thousand dollars a year half to absorb two thousand dollars ah increased energy costs so they focus on the cost argument if you're the candidate or perhaps you're the vice presidential nominee to Mrs Warren how would you flip that on its head I would say donald trump is a sucker for China he's a loser when it comes to China when it comes to climate change because he has in effect given an excuse use to China for inaction he is he is allowed is open the door to China to to take no action on climate change because is the best excuse China would have for not acting on climate change would would be if the US does nothing so he basically has taken our moral highground away from us if we act on climate change we have a legitimate reason to demand China to move if we don't act on climate change we got no no moral ground stand on so I would say he's got the biggest loser attitude when it comes to this now the fact of the matter China is acting on climate change domestically there are making significant efforts to reduce our dependence on coal fired plants and that's good news but they need the accelerate their efforts particularly in their international portfolio where there are financing fossil fuel plants around the world so we have a lot of work to do to to get China to accelerate their commitment but you can't very well do that when you're not doing diddly squat in our own country so trump so we can do that that's number one on the cost issue look we want to reduce costs ultimately for energy for Americans and I'll tell you what I would I love Americans to get their gasoline prices down to zero and that's what happens when you drive an electric car and so we have plans in our state we now have fifty thousand electric cars in our in consumers hands today those people aren't paying a penny for gasoline and we believe that by putting in charging stations the increasing access to to to way to finance electric cars in the original capital costs we're GONNA drive energy costs down and transfer Asian look this is trump wants to remain shackled to the to the gasoline pipeline to Saudi Arabia where he wants to send our military where we just have to spend billions for protecting the oil shakes and protecting the monopoly of the oil and gas industries now let's imagine it's twenty twenty one and there's a Democratic president but absent a clear majority in the Senate Congress's still divided how far should the president United States go to try to address the climate crisis in twenty twenty one absent on the ability to move thanks through Congress well the president can do a Han through executive order under existing statutory ability I believe the the president has the ability to move dramatically to increase this the acquisition in in usage of electric vehicles I think dramatic things can be done through executive order to reduce carbon pollution in the transportation sector I think dramatic things can be done to eliminate the use of coal dramatic things can be done through efficiency and our appliances and like so there is a huge amount that president can do through existing statutory authority using executive authority properly utilized now trump has abused that in the opposite direction and fortunately he's been so grossly incompetent and idiotic I mean his administration really cannot run a two car funeral and as a result we basically being able to stop him for the vast majority of things he's trying to do but for a president who can tie their shoelaces we can do a whole much through executive authority and I would encourage presidents to use everything in their toolbox to do that because we just don't have that much time his name is John McLaughlin.

"To want to use it against President Trump The pollster you talked about says no we've got this covered but I guarantee you the Democratic candidate whoever that is going to figure this out so Joe Biden is it I can't figure that out right now before the first votes have been cast then I you know it it it begs the question well they figured out in the gym you know some people are going to say that the re burden is ducking a conversation of climate changes because of his son's involvement with a gas company in Ukraine I don't know if that's true Biden certainly has been outspoken on the climate issue but why he stuck in this one is something that we need to follow and maybe get an answer Dave that's a really good question I mean is and we talked about this in previous podcasts is his entanglement his with the natural gas company in Ukraine and the impeachment process is it keeping him talking about one of the most important issues of the twenty twenty campaign it is a legitimate question to ask and I hope other reporters start asked this question as well climate twenty twenty is powered by Exelon the nation's largest clean energy provider excellent stands with a vast majority of its ten million customers who want clear air and affordable reliable energy level for more information visit Exelon Corp Dot Com I spoke with one of trump's top pollsters who gave us a pretty good idea of how trump is going to handle the climate issue in the campaign for president this year but coming up I we're GonNa hear your interview with Jay Inslee Washington's governor who dropped out of the presidential race but we still wanted to talk to him well it's interesting governor inslee has become sort of the the the ghost of climate passed in this in this election cycle after he dropped out most of the other candidates adopted some or all portions of his substantial climate plan and he has become the the the the voice that continues to demand that the Democratic candidates who remain talk about the issue so we wanted to ask inslee how he thinks this plays out both in the Democratic primaries as well as the general election okay hi governor this is Jeff Nesbit I'm the executive director of climate next us we've met several times in the past yeah you bet thanks for doing this work couple of interesting things and just to the last a couple of days I wanted to get your take on the first is the weather channel just this week they began to interview all the major candidates about climate impacts in the United States the only candidate who decided not to talk about climate impacts other than Donald Trump is Joe Biden as you know I was in encouraging him during the debate to be more aggressive on his proposals particularly on the pace of progress that we need to make the pace is daunting the pace has to be much quicker than we would have thought a couple years ago because the science of this is advancing so quickly so I would certainly encourage him to be to any particular forum are you can advance your vision and I think that's important it's important in in part because the debates have not been as productive as we would like to in the last date not a single climate change question was asked I think people intensely want to know what the candidates vision statements are I think voters the right to know that so I would certainly encourage everyone to look for every opportunity president trump's weakness is biggest weakness and it's known as a wedge issue to political advisors that is known as a winning issue to average voters is the environment and climate and so- candidate can you know can exploit that in a general election so Oh it makes me wonder if Joe Biden has actually thought about that there is a big tell when donald trump went out and claim to be an environmentalist a couple months ago and that was so he even understands he's so vulnerable and weak on this issue he knows that he's got no excuse for his terrible record and I that you always go after your opponent at their weakest point with our strongest position and I do believe it's on climate change because it's the biggest delta between the the absurdity of climate denial of Donald Trump and the economic growth in positive optimistic message.

You know I'm really excited this week because Jeff you it'd be speaking with Washington Governor Jay Inslee and I'll be talking to one of Donald Trump's you heard right when Donald Trump's lead pollsters still amazed that that that you pulled that off that he any sat here and he talked client with you I mean I that's amazing and then joined joined hands in Saint combat again there but first let's let's bring our audience up to date on what's been happening this week with climate in politics so Exxon Mobil is going to trial they're up against this the the attorney general in the state of New York and the attorney general what what what she's alleged in her complaint is that Exxon kept two sets of books one does the real cost of climate change and another one that downplayed that cost is is the hope here that that somehow this trial is going to make these fossil fuel companies address is the real cost of climate change while I think this is one of the reasons why everybody is paying such close attention to this trial go back in time and you look at the tobacco award in the litigation strategies against the tobacco industry and by the way can I just say many of the same attorneys representing the oil and gas industry used to represent I represent the tobacco industry so they know this coincidence so they know this issue quite well and so there are a couple of things going on your one is the goverry process though the the state attorney general as well as other agee's like more helium in Massachusetts are looking at unearthing document it's that can explain you know a quarter century of how these these the industry has dealt with with this issue we actually spoke to a reporter covering the ex- on trial for the drilled podcast which is an investigative podcast about fossil fuel companies in climate change hosted by Amy Western south and we're planning on getting aiming on climate twenty twenty very soon to talk to us about the twenty twenty election and we ask drilled reporter Emily Gertz to update us on the trial thanks David thanks jeff and I'd like to pick up on what you said there about two books New York has a very strong law for prosecuting security fraud and that's what it's accused Exxon of in this trial New York says that Exxon used one figure a high dollar amount in public for assessing the future costs of climate regulations on its business internally though it you used a lower number and that had the effect of making the company look more valuable to investors than it really was when this became clear in public the stock price took a huge tumble and investors lost collectively hundreds of millions of dollars the state wants the the judge to find Exxon guilty of fraud enter compensate its investors for the money they lost an Exxon needless to say denies we're going to keep you updated on this excellent trial meantime one right in the news the the weather channel is going to be holding a the climate discussion with candidates but two candidates so far a will not be appearing at one of them is Donald Trump surprisingly and the other is is Joe Biden that surprised me talks a little bit about this in our interview with him for this week's podcast the environment and climate issue is the weakest vote for president trump in his reelection so the Democratic nominee whoever that is is almost certainly going.

"For tuning out the white house are as we've been putting it here on this show for a few months now watch what they do not what they say and i think this is a well earned mantra for this most unusual presidency at this show. We have tried to follow this as best we can as a general rule rule from the very first indications we had. They were always lying to us every time they talked every time they put someone on tv including on this show every time they were asked for comment. It was always always always untrue. Even though i believe that this is the correct way to treat this administration ministration with all my heart i have to also say though that honestly just as a citizen. This is a weird principal right. It is awkward to not feel like it's appropriate or responsible to pay attention to anything that is said by the white house or specifically by the president i mean i know this. President does deserve that about treatment but it's also hard because there is only one president of the united states and so telling yourself that in order to be responsible about the news and what's going on in our country. You have to ignore everything. He says. It's just weird imagine having president again where where when he or he or she says a thing that's a good reason to believe that thing is true or that thing will come to pass or that's an adequate reflection of the president's true or feelings or plans or actions because the president said so in there for you can take it to the bank. I mean we've had that with good and bad presidents in the past. We might have if that again someday in the future. If this particular presidency hasn't broken the institution entirely well tonight after a particularly round the bend barking at the moon day of craziness from the trump white house tonight on this show we are going to two things first we are going to report on what they are doing not what they are saying some of what they are doing today is truly startling and we've got one of the lawyers here tonight who i think is likely flee to stop this new latest trump policy from ever going into effect. It's a new policy that involves locking up immigrant kids so we're gonna be talking about that but tonight. We're also going to be talking to one of the democrats who has spent these last few months vying with twenty or so other members of his own party to try to replace this president washington governor. Jay inslee launched his presidential candidacy this year saying the purpose of his campaign was climate change. He has aggressively simply put the issue of climate forward as the center of his message to the center of his campaign and as what he says he says ought to be the center of what the democratic party as a whole all is offering the country right now. Jay inslee pitch was basically that not just him but all the democratic candidates ought to be running on climate but his campaign has not ended up being like a one note john cage symphony inslee has been in there throwing punches on everything everything climate yes but also everything including the current president greatest geopolitical threat to the united states right now governor inslee the the biggest threat to the security united states is donald trump. I'm proud of standing up for unions. I've got a plan to reinvigorate collective bargaining so we can increase wages..

"We we create we invent we build we we build new technologies whenever there's been a transition America's done. Well, and there's going to be a big transition to me this frames. What seems to me like a pretty risky bet. Jay Inslee is making. Because most definitely if you take it as a given that climate changes and existential threat to our planet and our future children and all of that. Okay. Yeah. Well, then what he the bet he's making is that voters hearing climate change at the forefront of his message are going to weigh that above these other things perhaps because to your average person what is of more immediate. Consequence is do I have do. I have a job is my job going to be to a factory somewhere else away of paid leave at my job. It might being paid a fair wage at said job or do I have healthcare all these all these things not necessarily just economics? I think there is some research that that is starting to change. The question is would that change fast enough to serve in place for the primaries? So last point from Jay Inslee is that again, it's all about climate change. It's not change throughout this interview. But he is using that as a way to try and politically outflank some of his opponents, we've talked and I think in a couple other of these opening arguments podcast and also another podcast episodes about this this unexpected big debate that broke up about the filibuster. Right. Like, I didn't expect filibuster reform to be a top issue in the in the primary the way that it was for a little bit. He is longtime house member before it became Washington governor, and he was one of the first people saying, yeah, the filibuster which three second refresher. If you don't remember is as basically in order to pass any most legislation in the Senate, you need the support of sixty votes, you need the support of sixty senators which in all, but a very small handful of cases means bipartisan support, he saying you gotta get rid of that you need to be able to pass bills with just fifty one votes because because otherwise these big solutions are never going to happen. Otherwise, you can't adjust climate change. I believe in democracy..

"That's our annual holiday event, and it was held this year at the show box in Seattle before the festivities kicked off we held a special reception and interview with governor Inslee, he spoke with geekwire civic, editor Monica Nicklesberg and meat, and we talked about everything from his presidential ambitions to regulating big tech to lessons learned from Amazon's HQ to search. We're going to play the interview for you here in its entirety. Governor Jay Inslee. Governor inslee. Thank you very much for being here. Thank you closest thing. I've come to be in a geek, my whole life. This is awesome. Could be a secret a secret there, you're undercover. Geek. Thank you so much for being here. Governor. We're sitting here in this historic music venue. That's hosted everyone from Duke Ellington to Pearl Jam. But as you know, the show box is slated for the wrecking ball. It's kind of emblematic of broader themes that we see in the state, and I'm curious how do you think we should balance growth and change with progress? And how do you think about moving forward and innovation with while? Keeping in mind. What makes the state great? Well, since I'm sitting here, I would say I'm unalterably in favor of progress in saving the show box. So we'd hike to do both. I know what this means to the hearts of a lot of people, and I hope something works out here for the community. That's what I say about this particular venue. What I would say is look I've got a bias for innovation. I've got a bias for transformation. I've got a bias for progress in all things because that's exciting. I just came from the lime bike center where today we celebrated the two millionth ride on a lime bike and scooter pretty exciting in Seattle. And the reason I mention lime is because it's it's such a perfect example of the kind of thing we've embraced which is software new battery technology in a creative way to get people to have a whole experience you've got to be in favor of that. That's kind of what makes life worth living is that positive change. So the best way I can say it is. We've got to think forward because we understand that. If we don't look forward. We're not going to be able to hold on what we have. If we don't decarbonised economy in progress to a decarbonised economy was clean energy. We won't be able to hold onto our old artifacts of forests in salmon and snow to ski on. So in my mind progress is not only it doesn't contest clinging to what your value it protects to what your value and we're doing that right here instead of Washington. How's that for philosophic answer? I have an easy. Follow up question. Did you ride one of the scooters? I didn't get on a scooter today, but look forward to racing any governor of any state or province in Canada any day bring it on. I do ride bikes a lot every chance I get. And I love it. When I was talking to lime. I said lime bikes and scooters are time machines because when you're on a line bike your ten years of age. I've never seen anybody riding bike. That's not smiling. So I'm real believer. So governor Inslee we just got done talking with Steve Balmer, we just launched..
