Retailers Change Up Black Friday Deals To Keep Shoppers Safe
"Many businesses did not make it to this black friday. Maybe you've seen them shuttered in your neighborhood but those that have endured until now may be in position for a big holiday shopping season though. It definitely not safe to push your way into a crowded store just about anything can be delivered to your door if it's a gift. Hopefully that is done discreetly. Npr retail correspondent alina. Seljuk is covering the story for us. Good morning good morning. What do retailers expect big picture across the board. I'll surveys are suggesting. The majority of americans plan to shop in store or online this week or next and forecasts suggest. Were actually in for a record setting holiday shopping season just address. I always get this question about black. Friday is a dead and every year. I come here and if you like declared dead and then get a bunch of annoyed messages from people who love not just want to say. It's just no longer at that obsession with this one single day of the year. You may have heard these ads weeks ago this year walmart. Turn black friday into deals for days. Starting saturday november seven this year targeted black friday deals all november. Actually sales began as far back as tober in some cases so a lot of people have already started their holiday shopping. And don't intend to stop okay so we should really think of it as black friday's or black friday sales holiday. This is mainly happening online. For safety reasons. I assume by far the vast majority do say they plan to shop online on their phone screens. Because the big thing that happened this year we got a lot of people becoming online converts for the first i and especially thinking things like grocery health and beauty products stuff that we used to have to see i will. Here's vivek pandya tracks online shopping at dobie digital insights about thirty one percent of consumers reporting that they rarely shopped online or had never shopped online before and covert pandemic was essentially a forcing function. And when you think about physical stores every year the international council of shopping centers does a shopper survey and this year even this group is reporting a big drop in the number of people who say they plan to physically go shopping but in that survey almost two thirds of respondents said they did plan to go shop at a physical store. It's a lot of people and stores are adjusting. You know they're requiring masks. They're counting customers again to limit crowds and they're drawing attention to the cleaning measures which like unglamorous thing stores usually like distract from. We'll now you've got you know sanitizers front and center however people shop. What are they shopping for. Classic stuff close. Get guard stores. Electron ix smart. Tv's home speakers that sort of thing for years. We watched this shift toward experiences rather than things this year. We're back to things you know until we can start jumping back into massages classes or whatnot and especially talking things for the home where we're spending all this time now. More holiday decorations to check out houses books and crafts to occupy time. My favorite hot for the cova time is apparently air. Fryers are big for all that comfort food. So many families are still struggling financially. We hear about that every day. They still seem to say they want to feel special. The wants to celebrate the national retail federation predicts on average. Shoppers are going to spend almost a thousand dollars gifts food decorations and other holiday things which is only a little bit less than last year when the economy looked extremely different leading. It's always a pleasure talking with you. thanks thank you.

"Year and it's uh, just referenced. Black Friday weekend is gone from four days 40 days of deep discounting, and shoppers are responding with about a third of shoppers doing most of his or her shopping even before black Friday because the deal's air so good as you and team referenced. With these kinds of deals, though. I mean, are we still expecting to see the similar kind of broad spending for the holiday season that we have in the past phone? Um, particularly given that we do still have a pandemic going on, and potentially people aren't necessarily going to be heading to stores in his Big of crowds as we might have expected in the past. Yeah, I think it depends on where you look for that spending right. So within retail holiday sales are expected to grow in the low single digit range. But really what's driving back growth is probably 35%. Plus games in the digital landscape, and digital is really where the focus is going to be. People are going to be shopping more online. But stores stories can't handle the capacity that traditional peak qualities would Suggests that they would bring in because of the virus. But we think a lot of the shift will go digital. And there will be more curbside pickup. You know that week before Christmas as shoppers just can't rely on shipping to make sure they got back gift under the tree. Silbert flick injured.

I'm Charlie Pellet. That is a Bloomberg business Flash. It is indeed. All right, Charlie Appreciate the update. So we highlighted. A Bloomberg story yesterday was about how world famous shopping district are getting ready and really bracing for a holiday season. Unlike Any that they've seen before. As many consumers they're still wary of visiting stores with the virus pandemic reignited in much of the world, and then you've got travel restrictions, which will also slash the number of wealthy tourists normally. Relied upon to really spend lots of cash this time a year throughout the globe, So let's get some thoughts on the retail world. Great to have back with us is Tom Aggie, He's president and CEO of the International Council of Shopping Centers. And he joins us on the phone in Basking Ridge, New Jersey, Tom Nice to have been checking in with you. How are you? I have good. It's good to be with you again. Carol. I hope you're safe and healthy and long along with your family. Yeah, we're doing okay. Thank you And back at you. First and foremost, that's really all that matters. And having said that, though we know that backdrop that's not the case for everyone that's out there, not for all Americans, and we know one industry that's really had it tough. This year has been retail. You guys have a new survey out. About black Friday. What are you seeing what you're expecting? Well, you're you're right at retail. It's certainly been at the epicenter of everything that's going on. But I think as we look at the holiday season, we we do expect that fairly solid holiday season 1.9% growth a year over year. We do think that while black Friday and the Thanksgiving weekend is not, you know will not be like it has been in the past with the Level of crowds so forth this Phyllis symbolically important Weekend and about three quarters of Americans will do shopping in some way, whether that's e commerce or in a store. You know, I think that the driving the growth of the holiday season is it People have spent a lot less money and other things over the course of a pandemic. Obviously experiences dining out things of that nature. And so you're going to see a lot more spent on products and quite frankly, families. They're gonna lean in tow, trying to make this a more special holiday so longer Holiday season, you know the hardest, even really started a month ago, and I think that's Quite quite frankly logical. You know, as you're going to have a lot more things purchased online. That place is a lot more pressure on the logistics channel, making sure that those packages get there in time. And you're gonna see retailers really encourage Leverage their physical stores and utilize things like curbside pickup or having folks come into the store and pick things up to make sure that they get those things on time. Shoppers will be much for efficient this year as well. Hey, look, when you go to the store, you're gonna You know what you want me and you leave right? Exactly. And that's how I am in general now, And I wonder if that will always stay with me because you really You know, you don't want to be wandering around a store too much at this point. What's interesting from your survey? Tom is that it's a 69% of respondents indicated that they would spend in a physical store down from 84%. 69% down a lot from 84%, but still a lot considering the covert backdrop. You know, you look, I think people still now you're getting out of the house, but obviously they want to do it in a safe way. And I think First of all retailers and shopping centers, I think are doing a lot to make sure that they ensure the safety of their customers. And I need customers expect that like safety have to be very obvious. I'd be very transparent. You want to see hand sanitizers. We want to see those directional arrows. You want to see the Plexi glass? You want to make sure there's not, you know, crowds in stores or in centers, and so I think that that's first and foremost, I mean, those air table stakes were not people are not going to go shopping unless they see those things and understand that's going to be there. But you have people will go out, then maintain social distancing, and obviously, you know, it's it's important that everybody worst mass and certainly retailers. Shopping centers are requiring and encouraging people to wear to wear masks. So people still go out. Not the same, and they're much more efficient. I and and I expect that to continue. I don't know. The one thing I will say is, I'm not sure because we just don't know We've never been through anything like this before. It's hard to know what happens, post pandemic and this land at some point no point sooner. As opposed to later with the vaccine. How this will impact the long term behavior of of shoppers. Well, listen, I'm you know, I'm thinking of the last conversation. I had Tom in the in the previous half hour about real estate and You know, we talked about everybody's saying the demise of big cities While I've heard that before, and I think the same thing demise of brick and mortar. I think it's a social thing. I think people like it. People are missing it and I know my own daughter and I were like, kind of miss. Just wandering through a store on DSA. I do think you know that is just kind of part of our society, but no doubt about it. Things are definitely changing. Tom sit tight for a second will come back and talk a little bit more. We're gonna get back to Tom McGee, He's president and CEO of the International Council of Shopping Centers, joining us on the phone in Basking Ridge, New Jersey. I do want to right now. They'll get back to world. The National news for that. Let's head out West. Let's head to San Francisco and to our own Ed Baxter. Hi, Ed. Hi, Carol. Have you listening for a little bit?

Deal this is the world at large and we are politics one thousand and one hello and welcome to another episode of the world at large your place for international news If you're listening to this you probably enjoy news and caught cass. So i do believe you should leave a five star review and maybe even friendlier paragraph. isn't that right josh. Yes definitely and of course share and tell all your friends because when you guys leave reviews and you make grow than it makes us so happiest but we need to earn that. So why don't we just jump into the news right now so we have a little bit of a crisis in the horn of africa. Which if you don't know it's countries like eritrea. Djibouti ethiopia and somalia. They're all they're they're all having fun however ethiopia have a little bit less fun because a lot of analysts say oh might be on the verge of civil war so let's look at that what let's see why the opium might be at the situation. So the situation and unity between the gray and people of ethiopia and the central government run by the aroma has been experiencing study deteriorate deterioration especially in the last month so although the relationship has always been relatively unstable the government and the capital of a disabled has been keeping a close eye on their counterparts in the north. So let's breakdown some of this vocab real quick seal it. So what are the terrain people to grain people are. That's a good question. It's a good question. So now they are people that are in the north of ethiopia. They are about six percent of the population. So they're not that big but they're certainly sizeable chunk and they exist in the province in the north. It's right on the border with trae and they're not very happy right. I feel like ethiopia's kind of infringing on their rights as a province in as a people they want their. They want their ability to do what they want such as holding elections for example. And it just so happens that there wasn't election time it was election season in tigray and ethiopia ethiopia. The central government. Said no no no. Listen tigrayan people. I know you want. I know you have elections. I want you to want to have elections. I understand but in in. This is really important to you right. There was a virus. So you're not going to be holding these elections you understand and the two grand paypal said i definitely do not understand. In fact i'm going to go and hold elections right now now that you've said that into the legal so they went on and they held some elections. And what did the central government ethiopia say. Oh they said why did you do that. you are in a lot of trouble Mr green people you have violated on. You've crossed the line and we are going to make sure that you learn your lesson so you have absolutely no right and this is not the first time you guys do not respect us users jealous because of our past histories and we're gonna get into in a minute and you guys are just overall very disrespectful. You're going to hold elections now that that that's that's it well. I know what. I'm being rebellious and really wanna rebel against my parents or something. I just i just hold elections. I is really gets on your right there and it really gets under their skin. Classic rebellious teenager move. Yeah the people are in fact. The emblem of a raliess teenager so again. Despite this order from the capital not to hold the election coronavirus concerns the tigray in the tigray people's liberation front which is also known as the teepee aleph which runs area of the game anyways and when the government said that's a legal day were kind of mad and especially when the parliament. The parliament itself declared the elections legal. So not just the prime minister who they don't like but also the parliament so i'll be off. Mid the prime minister of ethiopia said this on twitter in response to the anger and open resistance from tigray and quote criminal elements cannot escape the rule of law under the guise of seeking reconciliation in a call for dialogue. our operation aims to end the impunity. That has prevailed for far too long and hold accountable individuals and groups under the laws of the land and quote some essentially. What he saying. This was on twitter. He got about thousand likes so. It's pretty legit. The people were like we stand with rock mod who love you and so That's comments section on twitter. I was reading In anyways he he got. He got a lot of support. This is quite a popular thing to say in if you live in the capital if you live in lands around there if you're in a romo majority ethnic group hopes however if you are a gray in person it's not as popular So what he saying is you're gonna have to follow the law. You're not some special people can just do whatever you want. I know you're a minority. I know you're percent but listen it's not talking fly here. I'm in charge. I'm the prime minister. I know you guys used to rule the country but not anymore And yes they did. In fact rule the country which again we will talk about the history of this But both sides decided that we're going to threaten each other so both of them threaten each other with military action and on friday ethiopia. The central government carried out airstrikes over to territory as a means of limiting the The region's access to like radars and missile stockpiles. Anything else that they could use to resist the actual i'll just up above and so Mr achmad the prime minister also ordered that all phone lines not great as well as internet be cut Which is where the swirl. The human rights groups have decided to speak in amnesty international. Denounced this they said why couldn internet service. That has nothing to do with it. There's expected to be hundreds if not thousands of of refugees fleeing to sudan so overall not the best situation People are concerned that look the people that are stuck in the middle of this government conflict. Who live in tigray are the ones who are going to be feeling the brunt of the things like internet being cut out in an actual war that airstrikes that are going on so abi aad mid actually won a nobel peace prize for ending the conflict with neighboring eritrea when he took power but this region as a whole as a new challenge and he even declared a six month state of emergency in the region to restore what he deems to be on order however that she grinned people do not see that as law and order in fact they see it as the opposite. They think that they're fighting for their sovereignty. They think they're fighting for justice and they just just in general they want they want to be back in power. So what do i mean by this. What do i mean by. What do i mean by them. Being back in power well. That's a great question. He in fact you're just on top of it today because this is a really important question. So that ukraine people since nineteen ninety-one. One as i said they are six percent of the population..

A deal to buy Xilinx would put a M D and a stronger competitive position against Intel. Most shoppers say they will avoid malls during the holiday shopping season. Just 45% of the consumer surveyed by the International Council of Shopping Centers expect to shop in the mall. 64% visited malls last November and December. The council says there will be an increase in e commerce this year. Deals will be spread out over a longer period. More than half of the respondents say they will make it a point to buy from smaller businesses that have been hurt so much by the pandemic.

EPA aviation climate control proposal
"First story comes from manufacturing dot net US says, it will adopt gradual climate standards for aviation. That's a line that kind of sparks some interest. Given the history with maybe the the European views of airplane emissions compared to. Well, the United States and some other countries as well. So what we have here, his the EPA, the environmental. Protection Agency has proposed new aircraft emissions regulations he and some people are criticizing them in other applauding them. Well, this proposal adopts the twenty seventeen emission standards from. The International Civil Aviation Organization. So Boeing and the Airlines for America Trade Group welcomed the proposal. Meanwhile environmental groups and even the EPA itself said that the proposed regulations would really have no meaningful effect. This is. Kind of frustrating I. Love Our current climate where we? Excuse the Pun where where the regulatory agency issuing the regulations is saying it's probably not the best thing that we've done, but here it is anyway I just. Kind of exasperating. Well, it is. It is the representative from the center for Biological Diversity. Had An interesting comment. that. Rip said they are literally just ANTIBAC- sliding provision. They don't require anyone to improve. They just say when doing stuff don't make it worse. Yes, but then you get credit for having done something even if you didn't well, I also that that I think that's the motto of Tonight's episode is we're doing stuff. Don't make it worse. Well, we should mention how much they are planning to reduce it They said that they plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions for new aircraft by four percent over twelve years. So that's one percent what every three years. I don't know from just kind of engineering standpoint. That's very, very really little improvement in efficiency and I would think that just by occasionally burning a little biofuel, they can nail that one, another perspective I, it comes from the hill which reports that an analysis from the International Council on clean. Transportation. Found that most airlines in the United States covering more than three quarters of Asian demand already meet the K. KO standards. So, we don't WanNA get into politics. But here, here's some proposed regulations that. You know one group of individuals say don't have any teeth whatsoever. Their lines for America a a is commenting that this is nice. Balanced approach that kind of Addresses all the concerns but So. There we have it. It is just a proposal. I, don't know what the process is to Go forward with this, but it is a proposal, notice a of no, our PM's NPR 'em no. Yeah I I. Don't know. I don't know how the EPA does. I don't know if they do the same way. The FAA does that being? Developed briefly make that would possibly make sense. But that doesn't probably isn't how to happen.

"international council" Discussed on WCBM 680 AM
"It's time now for in defense of troops from Baltimore Maryland a daily commentary on the news as it happens in the light of god's prophetic words now here with this challenge for Christian Americans to defend faith and freedom is David Lewis Christian greetings to one and all this is Reverend David Lewis with in defense of truth the radio ministry of the Cup hill Bible Presbyterian church it is good to be with you again today I'd like to talk about some things that are global in nature if you will you know I grew up in a liberal Christian church so I guess that's a bit of an oxymoron isn't I grew up in a liberal church that is that identified itself as being Christian let's let's start with that maybe that's a little better the United church of Christ very liberal today was not as liberal back in the fifties and sixties when I went there but the one thing I remember very clearly was as a child watching people put envelopes in the offering plate and then as I got a bit older understanding where the money was going and I don't ever remember that we supported a particular mission board or individual missionaries what we did was we sent money to organizations one of them was the world council of churches now again as a as a youngster I really didn't have a clue what that was all about but as I got older and started seeing things through the lens of scripture understanding the difference between liberal and conservative and that of course is in the area of theology it's in the area of politics it's really just about any arena you want to put it in you can use that and so I started looking at least WCC world council of churches the National Council of churches there was a federal council of churches and I started looking at all these organizations with a bit of a John decide because they did not appear to be promoting the gospel of the true gospel of Jesus Christ and as time went on I discovered that that in fact was indeed the case they do not promote the true gospel of the gospel of the world council of churches is not the gospel of the scriptures now I tell you all that to say if you are part of a church and I would think most mainline denominations the Roman Catholic Church some of the orthodox churches any church really that is not a true born again Bible believing charge would probably fall under their umbrella when you say well then what do I do I had a is is your something other than that add to what I could pledge my allegiance and yes there is in fact there's an organization in international council of Christian churches that got its start before the world council the world council was formed really in answer to the international council and the inner National Council their motto if you will taken from revelation one nine for the word of god and for the testimony of Jesus Christ will we stand we because I in my church here in pale is affiliated with the international council of Christian churches we stand we rast on the word of god the in errant infallible word of god that it gives us everything we need to know from alpha to omega as Jesus said he is the beginning and the end well the Bible is the word of god it is the beginning and the end we need go no where else to get our doctor and we need to go no where else to get explanations of who we are what we believe or who god is and so we have the scriptures and it is also for the testimony of Jesus Christ the true gospel message she life saving lives changing gospel message that Jesus Christ is indeed the only way to heaven I say to people often that I believe the number one job of a pastor is to tell people how to get to have an and you don't know who you haven't heard from Sunday to Sunday you never have the exact same congregation it may only be off by a few people and oftentimes you'll have visitors you'll have people who come in they're passing by they've heard about you whatever the case may be they're visiting from out of town and they will come in you don't know their background you don't know where they are spiritually so I think it's incumbent upon the pastor to if he's not preaching a message on salvation to at least mention in his prayer or from the pulpit in some way shape or form some manner and yet the gospel message out what must you do to be saved what must you do to go to heaven when you die and I say that again Bible believing churches true born again Christians make it a point to do those things for people who are not Christians in name only you know we call Republicans in name only rhinos I don't know what we would call Christians in name only but whatever that word would be they don't know these things they could get you know I sat in that United church of Christ for really beyond the first thirty years of my life I got saved at the age of thirty but I didn't come out of that church immediately I thought I was going to change things there and and you you know you try you you give your witness you give your testimony and most people just say oh well you're you're over the age maybe you'll come back they don't pay much attention and what I what I laughed I I looked over my shoulder when I walked out the front door for the final time and it was if the word Ichabod had been written across the portal Ichabod of course meaning of the spirit of god has departed and I don't know the spirit of god was ever in that church or that denomination and there are a lot of mainline denominations that are much the same way but I thought I would change it but the point is for over thirty years I sat in that church and never once heard how to get to have an now you might say wow that's on the pastor that's on the leadership they have failed you know that's on me I was old enough to open a Bible you know I was old enough to seek the lord and I was content to just listen to what I was being told and so my prayer for any of you out there who are searching maybe you don't think you've got all the answers yet you keep seeking the lord and he will reveal it to you so again where am I going with all this my wife and I and the matriarch of our church doctor John decker's window Mrs needed doctor we all traveled to report demont chilly it's in the south of Chile and we were down there for two weeks recently the end of January and we attended the twentieth World Congress of the international council of Christian churches and it's a great opportunity again to come together with people from all around the world we had a sixteen countries of officially represented there I think there were a few others who were there as well I'm not find their flag we margin in the opening ceremony two onward Christian soldiers people carrying their country's flag and it is it's just a wonderful experience we sing we all saying the same hamster just in different languages and thinking maybe it was like the day of Pentecost there in Jerusalem two thousand years ago it was it was quite the experience and I've been to the east my wife and I have been to these before and it just did it's great to reacquaint yourself with your brothers and sisters from different places around the world and it's it's just a wonderful time it it's a time of refreshments you certainly get re energized you you come out of there just reaffirming all that you believe and and that will do it again we're going to do in the United States in twenty twenty three in Collingswood New Jersey if any of you would care to get more information on that please get in touch with me here at the condo Bible Presbyterian church in Baltimore we do have an email Cobb hill it called hill church dot O. R. G. and you can reach me that way very quickly but again I'm telling you all of these things because you know we are pre trib pre mail church we we teach that that the the lord will come for his people we were wrapped her his charge a prior to the tribulation obviously such prior to the tribulation will also be prior to the millennium and he will take us to be with him and have an above and because of that we believe that we are living in the latter days in fact we're living quite deeply into the latter days things are getting worse and worse keep your eye in Israel I think that is a good measuring stick as to where we are at how close we might be to the lord's return and so we've been teaching these things and preaching these things for a long time and you can really see the ecumenical movement that the world council of churches the WCC is in which they are involved as they are just calling out a with a bullhorn if you well and people are flocking to that great tent of ecumenism they're compromising their face left and right so that they can all fit under the tent it's not just different denominations it's it's completely different religions you'll see Buddhist you'll see Moslems you'll see Hindus you'll see which doctors I you just anything you can imagine Wiccans you people who don't believe anything at all but they feel that they need to get in touch somehow perhaps with the spirit world and so they call their people and you know we're we're told in god's word and this is going to happen Jesus prophesied it as did the apostles as did the profits everybody said these are the things that would happen as we get closer to Christ return there would be false teachers everywhere in Matthew twenty four of course adds to chapter where Jesus is the disciples comp to him in a they want to know what you know how will we know when you're returning what will it be like prior to your return and Jesus said that I'm adverse for Matthew twenty four take heed that no man deceive you for many shall come in my name saying I am Christ and shall deceive many in down in verse eleven and many false prophets shall rise and shall deceive many and these false profits are coming out of the so called Christian church they call themselves Christian you know this is not a devil operates he's very subtle very deceptive and he makes is that little bit of error in with a lot of truth he doesn't stray too far away this is why would we not only pray for god to be wisdom we pray for discernment as well the difference of course being that discernment out should be able to tell the difference between that which is true and that which is all most true and that you know the devil is if the devil showed up with with you know red horns and a Pitchfork and a tail you know it was the devil will he doesn't come to you that way she was an angel of light he comes to you in in a manner that is very attractive that will get your attention that will make you feel comfortable in his presence to want to know more about him perhaps he's not going to come in such a manner that would scare you away because he wants to we went to his lair he wants to pull you into his trap yeah it's like quicksand you know going down on the beach we get down there to water and you find that your needs deep in quicksand kind of tough to get out then but he presents it in such a way that it it looks really inviting and so here is the world council of churches they're getting ready to meet in September of next year twenty twenty one in Germany and their resolution or their seem rather is Christ's love moves to world to reconciliation and unity well that sounds good on the surface thousand it but remember I told you the message of the world council is the promotion of the social gospel not the gospel of the scriptures and they say the world council has stated that the emphasis in their upcoming world assembly will be upon Christ's love expressed by advocacy for justice and peace and unity they will also emphasize that one human families need from Bob's in facing the future together well the world council is made it clear that the reconciliation and unity of which it speech is far different from that which is presented in.

I mean eight doesn't mean forget on an old decrepit decrepitude is a choice I'll just stay home on the couch which is the worst thing the worst thing if you're still on the couch stand up sit down stand up to ten I loved it brought it into perspective a few years ago someone smart out there made this the catch phrase that sitting is the new zmodo right you member that is the astra because they really want to pinpoint how bad for you sitting is and you can't just sit all week and try to work on the weekends and and and reverse it you really need to keep it up we this is your site is came to me we take our dogs for a walk okay no I'm not comparing grandma grandpa two dogs. what what what what our grandchildren come and visit Hey Paul Michael let's go for a walk. usually I say no let's go for a run.

Tony juniper welcome to a public affair. well thank you for having me well thanks so much for joining us today so Tony I was hoping that we could start out with you giving us some background on the work that first lead you to visit rain forests. well as you said you have been involved with the what the concept of cool rain forest now going back more than three decades of my black in this area began ready from first of all a very long and trusted nature or wildlife as a small child which took me into the water conservation I had a particular passion for but took me to work at the international council for bad presentation in Cambridge in England back in the late nineteen eighties while my what could I was trying to stop the extinction of some critically endangered. those beautiful scorekeeper because we all know and love which of course are inhabitants of tropical rain forests and through the work I was doing so I became familiar with the tropical rain forest question because one of the reasons why many of tires screech the pairing is because of deforestation and so on one becomes aware of that connection between disappearing wildlife and deforestation the one begins to look at the courses of deforestation what can be done to slow it down to reverse it and as a result of plants on a became quite knowledgeable on the subject and then was hired by friends of via to be the leader of the organization's tropical rainforest campaign I'm sorry who's from that point I became much more involved in trying to homeowners public opinion to encourage governments and companies to do more to be looking more policy and political agreements. I'm glad to be looking at many other elements of the tropical rain forests not just being told by Titus appeal this beautiful wildlife that lives in those places but also the contribution both systems make towards global climatic stability and those files in the Amazon of reading reminded us about the huge call to the missions that come from deforestation but also to be saying certainly during more recent times my work that I was dealing with prince Charles and his rain forest project understanding much more about the dependence of the anti awhile on the health of these eco systems including from the point of view of global border security because the cold rain forests for a reason but I'd be because a lot of rain falls upon them but because they generate rain clouds and some of those rain clouds are important to sustaining agriculture very very small for why the forests all so it's been quite a journey but I think the the the Bolton wild one of the things that is beginning to dawn on people is that you know not idly afforested ports of the very beautiful from the point of view off while if but actually they're essential for maintaining the human wild as well. suit Tony in your book you describe how reinforce act as a biotic pump or what you described as rain forests acting as the lungs of the world so I was wondering could you describe in in simple terms how all rain forests act as biotic pumps. this idea of biotech companies is quite but you want set be quiet you west of wild Russian scientists have been thinking about this for some time but it's any worse at the recently that the discussion about how the forest perform this particular mechanism is any relatively recently but we thought about they see it in the west of wild and so the bile sick. basically is a phrase that describes how the forests may two very large amounts of water and and in the atmosphere and in so doing helping wordy quite a profound impact on the way out the fabric circulation walks from the mechanism essentially depends on the price sensitive transliteration so when water falls on the forest it trickles down into the forest lord's but damp layered to the soil what the leaves and twigs are on the forest floor on the border of courses and sucked into the roots of the trees and pulled up into the lead to help with the price that's the photosynthesis and the growth of the forest but as this the colonel's warts of by you is coming out from underneath the leaks on the forest trees about war is is going yeah there was a canceled as of thank you. as flat moisture guys now it's rising on the hall tropical some be average rising up and does he have rice is out Warsaw by a goes to hire out to choose as the war for paper that's come from believe goes to higher altitude the air cools down as the air cools down the gas from the war the paper goes back to when they quit are you water droplets aspect ruling that condensation occur as an adult to choose the EC collapses in on itself because the gas occupies more and then the water droplets those are the very fact of going from gas to liquids by cooling down in compensation create the back here thank you then sucks up and from underneath because that's where the air pressure is higher this creates a drop off that that that propels he's cool right Alexander clouds over the rain forest but not only that it's actually driving atmospheric circulation I told of the entire tropical subtropical region and so there is this called the happily sell the Hadley circulation which is a big part of the atmospheric circulation of the and recent research suggests that this colossal power coming from the pile to Tom is actually brought my system and in the process of driving that system is helping to spread moisture over long distances as as well so does a lot of power and force involved in the biotech company at the same time in the case of the Amazon and some other tropical rainforest the Baltic pulling moisture from the C. so you can imagine that great column would force of ad being driven by the power of the federation and compensation. and after the fight in the case of the Amazon forest it's pulling it in from the ocean so bringing in more staff and in that way the pilots the pump is basically helping the forest to war itself by drinking in the moisture from the Atlantic Ocean and then of course the app comp is being used to circulate moisture across the Amazon basin so the rain that's originally folding on the eastern side by the Atlantic by the time the moisture gets across to the Andes mountains thousands of miles to the west it might have been re circulated several times as the clouds up a lot create a massive writing stormed a writing full stamp goes back up to the roof since the trade Serbia preparation of the process gets repeated and so this mechanism is one that is now being investigated is poorly understood evidently has a really profound effect on the white not only that the forest is working but the way in which at least the regional atmospheric circulation is walking when you remember that every crop field in the one old relies on board so much about water is coming from rain if not for medication then you realize that the forest actually could be playing quite a big role in global food security and indeed I write about research from some US scientists yes who have suggested that some of this water is traveling this powers the Great Plains of of North America in north US and Canada. yes I mean you you visit North Dakota in your book. yes. yes at South Dakota and South Dakota okay the great great regions of South Dakota a bundle that the reason I write about that reach up was just hearing from the local farmers. about the extent to which their rank or cultural productivity Brady is dependent on rain fall and the further west you had it not part of the wild then the bowl precarious the agriculture becomes in terms of cross cultural terms more towards rock Chang the farther you go west obviously but the that that that that the water issue is very stock that because the drought is people's profits can be lost and the extent to which that water is it some call links with the forests of south and Central America was an important part of the story yes. and and you also talk about sky rivers in the book so could you describe for us what is sky river is and and how that works. yes and so at but lower and could shoot and the big atmospheric circulation that's being driven by the forest there is this flow of water vapor and clan old coming out of the forest which is trampling. quite long distances and Robert Michael refer that would run across the land this is a flow of moisture running through the atmosphere and research tells us about sky rivers that run along the side of the Andean mountains and then come into the grain belt all the luck pluck up based on so you've got an area south of the Amazon down towards Argentina in southern Brazil and Paraguay which is being worn by moisture coming out of the Amazon basin being carried on the so called sky rebels and some scientists working in South America believes that the hugely disruptive grant fourteen and I was in Brazil that year and sold the effects of some of this in terms of empty reservoirs boasting crops. walls down to deforestation in the south and Amazon that was interrupted Big Sky rivers the other wives would be talked about by the forestry rating so much water into the atmosphere just to give you a sense of the scale of the water got into the atmosphere each day the Amazon basin rainforest is putting into the air about twenty billion tons of water which is just incredibly colossal amounts of moisture and of course it's forming clouds some of its holding back over the forest but last night some of it is traveling quite long distances and actually the difference between being a vampire rated the most loving down the river gives you some sense of the amount was leaving the forest and is going further afield into into other systems including agricultural systems quite far away so the the centrality of the war. in the tropical rain forest I think this has been somewhat overlooked and you know we tend to focus on wildlife set now spent much of my career folks on the wildlife and then we've focused on the call button with very good reason because of the climate change challenge the perhaps we haven't understood so much the issues linked with Warsaw and global food security which I think all crucial which we need to register more fully as we devise strategies for the conservation of these places the national but be that conservation their restoration because so I think we need to now be investing in putting black forest but I'd be saving what's left. yes and so as far as other other rain forests I mean to other rainforest throughout the world have a similar kind of biotic pump impact any effect on on the land masses around them say for instance the.

"international council" Discussed on WNYC 93.9 FM
"Nicolas Madura. It is my juicy is a patriot. We have to defend off all the we can't sell out this imperial plan to get Venezuelans to fight amongst themselves. This is the problem that must now consider the more. Western support gets the more who may be painted as an American agent, but without such backing his movement may have no way of keeping up its current momentum. James Matt Reynolds reporting from Caracas that Canadian capital also will today host the Lima group set up in two thousand seventeen to help establish a peaceful exit to the crisis in Venezuela. It's a multilateral body. And includes twelve countries, not the United States. Let's beat now to Ben rose. Well, president of the Canadian International council, it's foreign relations think tank welcome to NewsHour. I wonder if you agree with our correspondent James Reynolds there when he talks about the more western support at one Guido gets the more. He is likely to be painted as an American agent. Well, I believe that your correspondent actually mentioned the more US supports. He receives the more the more that exposes a potential political vulnerability. And I think that's definitely the Liman group represents Latin America, it is a body, including governments representing vast majority of Latin Americans that are leading the international response, and that is entirely legitimate. And that is entirely in support of a peaceful and constitutional transition on car. The United States has a different and separate approach. But that is not the coach of the region. It's not the approach Canada, which is very much in favor of a democratic and peaceful transition. Okay. So Canada is hosting the Lima group meeting what all the groups options. Do you think? So the group has been extraordinarily successful at listening to the coming out of the Venezuelan people, especially their representatives to the national assembly. The wieldy representatives have been national assembly there guiding what the regional response should be and the importance take the most important accomplishment of Lima group is too firmly established the international community is following the lead of local actors at this Venezuelan movement being driven by the people have been reclaimed their sovereignty any anything that the international community can do to support that should be welcome in that would be assistance for elections delivery of immediate humanitarian assistance as soon as the the Venezuelan authorities allow those food medicines and other supplies to to arrive and crucially a message to any outside forces that are threatening the use of force inside as as Russia, which already has some security forces on the ground defending the d'oro and United States, which is. Blustering about potential military intervention. The message I believe in the Lima group should be for those countries to be quiet to stop threatening for us. And if they have forces on the ground to to withdraw them from the Venezuelans themselves can take this matter into their own hands. You mentioned the humanitarian aid one Guido has asked for that to come in. And it may well come in pretty soon through Colombia. Do you think that could actually swing support in his favor, particularly from the military? I believe that the military is very firmly on the fence there were massive demonstrations all across Venezuela in some of the smallest towns and villages across the country and be military did not take any measures at all against the protesters this time, and I think that's an important signal of the that they have that they're genuinely thinking through whether they're going to stick by the previous president or get behind a transitional government. So any messages to them that encourage them to embrace this popular movement would be extremely helpful. And yes relieving humanitarian suffering would be part of that. Because the rank and file of the armed forces themselves are suffering from severe malnutrition and their own children are dying when they go to the emergency wards of the various public hospitals because of lack of medicine, and so the vast majority of people in the Venezuelan armed forces do want to see some kind of restoration of constitutional order in some kind of review. Building of the economy. I wonder I just one final very brief question. I mean, you you say that the group should very firmly say that are outside military intervention should be resisted, but the United States may well decide that there is a time to actually do that President Trump has clearly said all options are on the table. It is unlikely that the United States is seriously planning a military intervention. It's more likely that that is bluster by the president of the United States. There are no troops American troops stationed anywhere near Venezuela. So the the sort of American tanks rolling down the streets of Caracas is actually pure fiction. For it to be totally irresponsible for the president to threaten Ben Roswell president of the Canadian International council, a foreign relations think tank talking to us there about the Lima group meeting in.
