This is something that europe is far ahead on compared to the us Though several states have their own plans basically the administration is trying to make up for lost time so it setting a big goal. Thirty gigawatts of offshore wind power by twenty thirty. That's enough electricity to power more than ten million american homes for a year according to the white house now. Currently there's only one offshore project operating massachusetts and rhode island but they have to ramp up quickly to meet biden's climate goal of net zero greenhouse gas emissions from the power sector by twenty thirty five and fast change like that can make people uneasy especially in the fossil fuel industry. That's one reason white house. National climate adviser gina mccarthy focused her comments on opportunities. This is all about creating great jobs in the ocean and opposite cities and in our heart win all across america revitalize communities in particular those that have been left behind the administration says this expansion will support thirty two thousand construction and support jobs through twenty.

She would be the first Native American Cabinet member in the nation's history. Her nomination by President Biden has also been criticized by oil State Republicans because of her stated opposition issues such as to fracking in the Dakota access pipeline. Ecuadorian reports from Fresno. The history being made by Deb Holland's nomination was hailed by all on the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, even those who are skeptical of her policy views The special nature of the moment was evident as the New Mexico congresswoman introduced herself to the committee and the nation. I spent summers in the Sita, or small village on Laguna Pueblo, the location of my grandparent's traditional home. It was there that I learned about my culture from my grandmother by watching her cook and by participating in traditional feast days and ceremonies, it was in the cornfields with my grandfather, where I learned the importance of water. And protecting our resource is where I gained a deep respect for the Earth Committee chair, Joe Manchin outlined the immensity of the task. The Interior Department manages 500 million acres of land. 1/5 of the entire country. The 70,000 employees oversee Parks Monuments Wildlife refuge because dams, reservoirs and canals. It also supervisors mineral resource lands that produced 20% of the nation's energy. Citing previous statements Deb Holland had made about fossil fuel production. Wyoming Senator John Barrasso, the committee's ranking member, set the theme which Republican members came back to repeatedly. Oil production in federal lands and oil pipelines, especially the Dakota access pipeline. By signing an executive order to ban all new oil coal gas leases on federal lands. The president is taking a sledgehammer to Western states economies. Ban on federal leasing could result in 33,000 workers losing their jobs in Wyoming. Representative Hollins home state of Wyoming, 62,000 workers stand to lose their jobs. Holland also faced questions over her appearance at protests of the Dakota access pipeline in North Dakota before she was elected to Congress in 2018.

Trump administration to auction oil drilling rights in all federal lands of ANWR coastal plain
"After decades of debate the trump administration next week is planning to auction off drilling rights in alaska. More specifically alaska's national wildlife refuge those against drilling say they want to protect the land which is home to some two hundred and fifty animal species including caribous and wolverines. But here's what you may find surprising. And this long-awaited bidding process turns out. There's not a lot of interest. Here's marketplace's scott tong. A lot of things were in fashion in the mid eighties. Big hair fanny packs and oil giants wanting to drill in alaska. National wildlife refuge an. I'll have mostly gone out of style. Tim brasher co publishes the alaska economic report. One thing that is really interesting. A lot of us in alaska who follow these things is how embitterment the major oil companies have been an war for years. That could be because they sense. The toxic politics decades of environmental opposition media risk of lawsuits against oil companies. Considering in war plus corporate reputational risk readdress and drilling in remote alaska is not cheap. Warns energy and lawyer. David hayes a former top official at the interior department. The price of oil is not high. The expense of drilling at alaska is high. Meanwhile there are many places in the world that are much cheaper to drill for oil than the alaskan arctic. So most if not all oil giants are expected to sit out the bidding which would mean lowest prices in measly royalties for the government. Now at exactly what. Congress predicted three years ago. When an authorized leasing assumed a billion dollars in royalties the bids that are put in are going to be nowhere near what congress said would occur. Low bids mean drilling rights could go for bargain. Prices though and radner at the alaska economic report predicts some interest perhaps among state and local players. The geology does look very good and even given all the bad pr and the politics. I just can't imagine that somebody maybe just individuals aren't going to submit bids perhaps anticipating lukewarm interest alaska state development commission. Just got the okay to itself to make a grab for potentially valuable land and eventually flip it or partner with oil. Companies deadline for bids came yesterday and wednesday. They'll be unsealed
"interior department" Discussed on KQED Radio
"Be the first Native American to lead the Interior Department, the first in the Cabinet, actually. Michael Regan would be the first black man to head the Environmental Protection Agency. And they and others talked about this need to address you know environmental injustice for communities of color, the national climate adviser who does not need Senate confirmation, she'll be Gina McCarthy. She led the EPA under Obama, so she helped craft a lot of the climate policies that President Trump has rolled back. So with all the other agencies that touch on climate as well, why also have a national adviser inside the White House? Biden talks about a whole of government approach. You know, the driving message is that climate action will help the economy and create jobs and address impacts that are affecting all kinds of aspects of our lives. It is remarkable how he has spoken about climate change with pretty much all his nominees. Hey, talks about how extra Mean whether is, you know, devastating for farmers for businesses. How it disrupts global supply change threatens national security s So the idea is it's urgent. There are things many agencies conduce. Oh, and part of Gina McCarthy's role is going to be to coordinate that and push them with all their other competing priorities. I mean, this is so interesting. It's a much more holistic approach than we've seen even And during the Obama years can you give us an example of how this is gonna work? Yes, So, for example, housing and urban development, they could make a lot of buildings. More energy efficient transportation can do a lot to push for public transit and electric vehicles. Agriculture can promote farming practices. That you know, for example, lot carbon in the soil, and all those things hit major sources of carbon emissions. Also Treasury Department, Biden's pick to lead it. Janet Yellen, by the Way, has said she supports a carbon tax to shift the economy away from fossil fuels, although that would require Congress. But environmental groups would like to see the U. S. Require companies to disclose the risks they face from climate change. And then if you focus on that risk, you could discourage financing for false So fuel projects that is something that could certainly face pushback. Alright, you mentioned a word there. Congress. Biden's climate plan is ambitious, but he will face a closely divided Congress at best. How much is possible, though through executive action alone that it's a good question, and you know, even short of climate legislation, he's not likely to get the $2 trillion. He wants for infrastructure in clean energy, but he might get some, especially if there's more stimulus funding and, you know Windham Solar, a popular in red states to before her pick, Gina McCarthy told NPR. You don't even have to talk about it as a climate thing. People want jobs. People want fairness. People want to be healthy, and I think the more we can show the value of clean energy. Even in your pocket books, then people will be much less afraid to recognize that climate change is happening. And unlike a lot of executive action, this is something a future president couldn't reverse. You know, former Obama Climate advisor John Podesta told me when you build 30 gigawatts of offshore wind, that's not going anywhere. That's NPR's Jennifer Ludden. Thank you very much. Thank you.

That's why family would get together, usually at the home of the elders for safety for safety, right because the elder they couldn't travel, so the younger they went to the elders family and to support each other. And usually the light fire. Outside the house and also the light candles inside. And this was symbolic to help the light the sun to conquer the darkness. So tell me what you eat on this night. What kind of food is there? Food place very important role in this festival. Fresh fruits from this summer and autumn, such as what? ERM Ellen And create would be saved for this night.

And poetry is also ah, huge part of yell denied right and storytelling that was very important. In my parents has on this night. My older sister would ask us to make a marriage. Dad she would consult. The book of her affairs that 40 century poet And this side the points that came up randomly as as answers and answer to our wishes. We were very excited about this ceremony. And that was one of the things was she would ask us do not ask more than three times because her office gets angry on my grandmother. Was a wonderful storyteller who in chanters mesmerize us hypnotize us through the night with her stories. I've never forgets my grandma's stories. And, of course, singing dancing game playing their own very important part of this night's What a beautiful celebration. Um, Iranians, Of course, have had a tough year. There have been protests, Sanctions covert, of course. So celebrating this'd year must be especially meaningful, But I imagine also hard because we can't gather in the same way. That's true. Hopefully After this dark and evil time, there would be light, goodness, kindness and, most importantly, human contact. But we all are missing these days. So the winter solstice falls on Monday this year. What will you be doing this year to celebrate? Well, unfortunately, my Children are in California. We cannot hug them and be close to them. But I'm going to make carrot Alva and I'm going to make the thick pomegranate. The soup, which my mother made So we're going to set up the ceremony, but we're gonna be together.

Haaland makes history as Department of the Interior nominee
"Elect Joe Biden continues to build what many say is the most diverse Cabinet in American history, said to nominate New Mexico congresswoman Deb Holland to serve as head of the Interior Department. If confirmed, she'd be the first Native American to lead the department that has oversensitive about 1/5 of the nation's land. Including federally controlled tribal areas. A big first there. He's also planning a nominee, Michael Regan, to lead the Environmental Protection Agency. He's currently head of North Carolina's Environmental Protection Department.

Biden plans to nominate Michael Regan as EPA chief
"On his pledge, his team also announced several New key appointments this week. Who might be influential in getting us there. I'm speaking about yesterday, New Mexico representative Deb Holland was picked for interior. She's both the first native American tap for the job and a big opponent of oil drilling in the Arctic Wildlife Refuge. Good news for the climate goals, right? Yeah, you know, as they say in D. C. The personnel is policy and yes, representative Debbie Holland. A member of the Laguna Pueblo has a track record of opposing, you know, mining and drilling on public lands. You know, the Interior Department is kind of overlooked as an environmental agency. But it has jurisdiction over 20% of land in the U. S. And those lands produce about 1/5 of the country's greenhouse gas emissions. There's a lot of mining and drilling, but she has a track record of opposing a lot of that and supporting Native American rights. And so it's very likely that that will be something that will shake out in the future if she takes over this department. Plus we have the other picks this week of Michael Regan for EPA and Gina McCarthy. Yeah, that's right. Michael Regan is the head of North Carolina's Department of Environmental Quality, and Gina McCarthy herself was the former head of the EPA, and she was brought on board to be a climate adviser and former Michigan governor, Jennifer Granholm was also selected to lead the Department of Energy. That's really interesting picks one last story close to my heart
In Historic Move, Biden To Pick Native American Rep. Haaland As Interior Secretary
"President-elect biden sandy. Wanted his administration to reflect america and two of his nominees to lead his environmental agenda. Appear to support that promise. Michael regan would be the first black man to lead the environmental protection agency. If confirmed by the senate and new mexico congresswoman deb holland is biden's pick for the interior department. She would be the first native american to serve as a cabinet secretary. Npr's nathan rod reports hamas nomination is especially symbolic. The department of the interior is a massive agency responsible for about one fifth of all the land in the united states deals with natural resources and wildlife recreation and national parks. But it's also responsible for the relationship between the federal government and the people. Those lands were taken from or a number of scholars who have done really great work to show how the creation of national parks was predicated on the removal of native peoples katrina phillips as a history professor at macalester college in minnesota. And she's a member of the red cliff band of lake superior ojibway and she says it's fair to say that for most of its history. The interior department has been used as a tool to oppress indigenous people in the us which is why she says she still in shock that deb holland a member of the laguna pueblo. In new mexico has been nominated to lead it to harm someone who understands this history and indigenous sovereignty and land rights and treaty rights is. Just i mean. I'm just i'm so happy right now. It's just hard to believe that this nomination cam through a large coalition of native american tribes along with environmental groups progressive leaders pushed for holland to get the post now just because of the symbolism but because of her experience she's a two-term congresswoman who served on a committee with oversight of interior and she comes from new mexico a fossil fuel dependence state that is trying to transition to renewable energies in an interview with npr before her nomination holland made clear. She'd want the country as a whole to try to do the same. Climate changes the challenge of our lifetime and it's imperative that we invested an equitable renewable energy economy. President elect joe biden has said he wants the country to be carbon neutral by the year twenty fifty and his interior secretary holland would have a big role in shaping that future roughly one quarter of all greenhouse gas emissions in the us come from public lands. She also said she'd restore trust with the interior. Seventy thousand some employees prioritize conserving thirty percent of all us land and water and undo some of the damage that the trump administration has done to our environment. Native americans and other minorities are disproportionately affected by climate change and pollution in dallas goal to founder of the indigenous environmental network says it would be invaluable to have someone in charge of interior. Who understands that but he says the fight is not over. We're not stopping here. Like we celebrate this victory but we as a climate justice movement as an indigenous rights movement are going to continue to push the biden administration to to its promises and to do so in an equitable way nathan. Rot npr news.
Biden's Climate Change Plans Could Face Serious Challenges In A Divided Congress
"Climate change is one of the top four crises president elect biden. Says he'll tackle. I but his ambitious plans could meet serious challenges if he faces a divided. Congress make an rod is part of npr's climate team and joins us now. Hi nathan nary biden's climate plans. Were the most aggressive ever put forth by a major party candidate. How much do they depend on. Congressional support Quite a bit to accomplish everything that he's pledging to do. Because yeah i mean as you said. He set some very ambitious goals though we should say they are goals that targets. That are very much in line. With what the scientific community has been saying for years that we need to do which is cut greenhouse gas emissions fast to avoid worst case climate scenarios. And that's what biden's plan would do. He wants to cut all carbon emissions from the electric sector by two thousand thirty five. He wants to make america. Carbon neutral p- not adding any greenhouse gas emissions to the planet by twenty fifty. And to do that would require massive changes and not just our electrical sector but industry transportation massive investments in new technology. And obviously. that's a lot easier to do financially politically lawsuit wise. If it's done with congressional support with congressional support you said so what happens if democrats control the house and republicans control the senate as looks likely. How much of this can you still get done. That's a good question. I think there are you know. Obviously there are parts of the republican party current present included who do not see climate. Change is as much of an issue but that is not universally true and You know remember. There's also this big and growing movement of businesses utilities cities states that are taking their own aggressive actions to reduce emissions themselves. So i've heard some environmental groups and also some more conservative folks. In recent days you know suggest that biden reach out and try to engage. Republicans on this issue scott siegel for example as a partner at the lobbying in law firm bracewell which represents some fossil fuel companies and. He says there is an appetite on both sides for technological advancement so better batteries. Hydrogen fuel carbon storage and. He thinks that's an opportunity. A lot of where we've seen. Bipartisan legislation in congress has married and innovation agenda to expansion frankly of regulatory authority so there might be the makings of a deal there and i think that A biden administration be well placed to try and pull that deal off and by that means you know. Biden has a history of working across the aisle and being in congress so that should help. So what if mitch mcconnell says not going to happen. What could biden accomplish with executive actions. He can still do quite a bit you know. He could roll back rollbacks. At the trump administration undertook on you know everything from methane emissions to clean water rules. He could use existing laws like the clean air act to direct agencies to regulate greenhouse gas emissions. That's what the obama administration did before you know maybe one of the easiest goals that he set for himself to accomplish just to make the us a big part of the global conversation about climate. Change again He can do that by rejoining the paris climate agreement which he says he's going to do and just by being a part of international talks. What are you going to be looking for between now january twentieth when he's inaugurated know i think it's gonna be really telling to see who he nominates to some of these key agencies that deal with environment and climate issues. He's being urged by more progressive parts of his party to not give leadership roles to people who have ties to fossil fuel companies That is something that no modern administration has done before. It's something that biden has not committed to But if he does go route or he nominates folks were viewed as more progressive to lead the epa or interior department That could be a signal of how ambitious you might try to be on climate action you know but also if republicans maintain a senate majority and they fight those nominations to nail. That could be telling of how much resistance. He's going to run into on his broader climate agenda as well. That's npr's nathan. Thanks nate thank

"The interior department's bureau of labor management I forgot to get in here as department moved a bunch of employees from Washington DC to elsewhere in the country and it's causing some chaos here in these events guys alongside Walter good morning joining us now reporter John Solomon he is John Solomon's reports and that is his new webpage John thank you for joining us this morning a mornings on the mall my pleasure to be with the guys now you really got some memos because of a FOIA lawsuit that you filed then these memos show that Burry smallholdings contacted the Obama state department several times during the twenty sixteen election and the purpose of those contacts was to to discuss ending the probe by the Ukrainians into Bristol holdings of for some court but basically corrupt practices what it what else we find out about in these new memos about the contacts between Bristol holdings and the Obama state department yeah now that's a great question we listen when we started this right the Democrats and their media allies recalling the whole Joe Biden thing it can fall at conspiracy it's far from it we now know that hunter Biden Joe Biden's son got V. I. P. access to the state department including the deputy secretary a guy named Tony Blinken it was his father's top national security adviser for years we know also that his company use that the I. P. axis pre smallholdings the Ukraine company under investigation in Ukraine during the twenty sixteen election to pressure the state department to try to make those corruption allegations against it go away this occurs in February twenty sixteen the beginning of the primaries right when Hillary Clinton Donald Trump is being set up for the twenty sixteen election the last thing Democrats wanted this scandal in Ukraine this company comes in and says we need the state department's out to get these make these allegations go away and the reason they cite from getting the state department to help is that hunter Biden is on the board they invoke under Biden is the reason the state department should help why was this troubling why was the reason the concerned why was hunter Biden concerned my my Joe Biden be concerned because of bad just that earlier that same month early February twenty sixteen the Ukraine prosecutors raided the home of hunter Biden's boss I had a very small that set off alarm bells that maybe there is going to be a big case coming down the pike and that's when hunter Biden's team that brief my company goes into action pressing the state department to try to make this thing go away and one month later what is Joe Biden due March twenty sixteen he forces the firing of the man who is leading that investigation diplomat George Kennan who testified yesterday John Solomon said that Beres might does deserve to be investigated and in fact it's within the United States interests that that happened what do you think of that testimony well you know it's pretty clear to me that the career state department official long before I saw a problem and wrote about it career state department officials saw the exact same conflict of interest one of the things that shows up in the testimony is that in twenty sixteen USA ID the form aid arm of the state department try to do a joint project with brief my and it was George can't the Democrats star witness yesterday who went out of his way to block that thing saying it was inappropriate for the state department to be in business with a company with his track record of corruption that says something if the state department could see the problem of hunter Biden being associated with the company why couldn't Joe by yeah in fact he was it I think referencing the fact that the guy who ran Beres ma was previously I believe the top ecology official in the country in berets man he granted breweries ma his own energy licenses which she ends up taking over so the there's obvious corruption apply in your magic with an ETA secretary here gave himself all of the mining or are drilling permits for a country why he was the here she was the EPA administrator right that's all corrupt this company was and then there was a significant draining of money out of Ukraine during the maid revolution money being stolen out of Ukraine the company never really face justice but because of this political pressure one of the things we're hearing a lot about in these hearings is the name Marie Ivanovic and she was at the ambassador to Ukraine and she was fired from that position by the president and as she is we're hearing that she was targeted by president trump but yet your latest piece on John Solomon reports dot com quotes a source alleging that Maria von of it she gave a speech in March of twenty nineteen calling for the Ukraine's special anti corruption prosecutor to be removed and discussing whether that's a violation of the Geneva convention what happened yeah in fact you're either so you don't need to trust the source you can go and actually see the speech he gave March fifth twenty nineteen right in the height of the Ukrainian presidential election impassively veneris gave a speech calling for the removal of this prosecutor was aligned with the incumbent president immediately it caused an uproar in Ukraine in fact so much so that a scene for senior citizens are coming in to Ukraine two days later was preparing and ended up getting peppered with questions whether this is appropriate in baton Rouge to interfere in our election he basically said well we stand by the bass there I'm not going interpreter words you can take you don't you taken at face value what you say what it shows is that long before I wrote about about your manager he became a figure in the in the impeachment proceedings or the object of Rudy guiliani others concerns there were concerns about her in country the Ukrainians were uncomfortable with or they thought she metal than the election by making the statement so close to the election what is the Geneva convention what's the guy called more back to protect diplomats worldwide but in order to get that protection the requirement on a diplomat in a foreign countries you can not interfere in the internal affairs of the country that's the requirement that you as a visiting diplomat could be a lot of people in Ukraine you can see in the questions that they came up with the press conference I believe her statement interfered you later see president unless you tell president trump on the call I'm glad you got rid of her I thought she was a bad day and you can go all the way back to twenty eighteen and you'll see that then house committee house rules committee chairman Pete sessions a powerful member of Congress wrote a letter to the state department suggesting that she be recalled so there was a lot of controversy around she may say was unwarranted unfair to the victim but you can't deny that there was a slight the controversy around her conduct there and I think that's going to come out of the hearing over the next couple of days transaction Solomon The New York Times this week wrote an article about you in the lead out of these hearings and pointed the finger at you for destroying her credibility made it seem that you had at the end that the gross implication of it was that you would somehow ginned up attacks against her and that ultimately led the president of the United States to fire zero interest motive in destroying or harming or doing anything Dan bass of the advantages for other than the highlight factually what happened and what's interesting is in your time doesn't cite any factual information is wrong and they gave me a big favor yes they give your life for six months people going around without doing any reported just going around saying the Ukraine prosecutors who said unanimous gave her do not prosecute this we can't it well the New York I finally went a month ago an interview that prosecutor guess what he doesn't recant he stands by the statements in my original TV interview that I did with him more importantly in these impeachment proceedings you will see the knowledge mint about city of manages deputies and associates that knowledge and that in twenty sixteen they repeatedly engaged in pressuring Ukrainian prosecutors not to prosecute certain people who work the embassy wanted to protect and they name those people they give day to give circumstances so the original story which raised the possibility that the US embassy was pressuring Ukraine not to take internal actions in their own country is been validated by these impeachment with this is my story actually has been proven by the testimony of these witnesses yeah it's amazing I tell you what it really is a battle for information though that was a crazy Jon Solomon thank you did talk to look for to have you back soon thanks guys have a great day are you two seven fifteen now W.
