Yeah friends Reliability with existing levels certainly in the certainly in the more expensive neighborhoods. Right but i think that you know. That's where the other thing too is to say. Well if you look back at the at the recession in two thousand eight that's a really interesting connection that you draw to it because one of the other things that sort of happened around that in in your city and in many cities is that it began to draw increased interest in Well this is a whole other can of worms but Gentrification revitalization whatever you wanna call it in urban areas that did not have the same ran Like rent overheads as the more traditionally desirable built up areas and coffee. Certainly was in many cases. Kind of the tip of the sword for that And they wonder if the compelling bit and and part of me wants to look at this as a little bit of optimism the idea that coffee remains this dream for a lot of people and if you get layoff laid off from your corporate job you were always the coffee guy in office or you got laid off from your job in marketing or something. But you've always been you worked as a so when you're in college and you and your friends get together and go for coffee and you've always sort of said well you know. Would i be able to make a beautiful expressive coffee shop someday. I think that that's that dream is still there for people. People still really connect to that. And i want to be a little bit optimistic and and perhaps selfishly optimistic that i'm going to get to write about all these lovely places that men and women go on to open in cities and places around the world that i really hope that that that dream sort of continues and.

They can do is take away because it's national Every restaurant have a depending on the premises value is able to get from funding from the government. Oh interesting so so. That's tied into things like rants and premises How much how much business you were doing before the shutdown on those kinds of things. It's not turnover-based is race based fund.

"Jane Fonda was arrested five times for environmental protest outside the Capitol this fall. She accepted a BAFTA film award while being taken into custody and photographs. The actor cast a striking figure in handcuffs in red will coat. It's a color fitting for the protests which are inspired by global school strikes and called Fire Drill. Fridays fresh from her arrest streak. The activists joined environmental justice campaigner and community organizer. Peggy Shepherd to record a live episode of Dare. I say in partnership with AMEX AT SAKS fifth avenue in New York City Peggy has been at the forefront of the Environmental Justice Movement in the US for a long time. She founded nonprofit organization. We Act for Environmental Justice in North Manhattan in the eighties. It helped low income New Yorkers in particular communities of color fight harmful environmental policies. It now fights for better environmental and health policies on a local and national level in the I live recorded episode of Dare. I say peggy and Jane discussed civil disobedience the green new deal resilience and why it is important for women to lead the climate conversation. How can we remedy empathy crisis? That has hurt generations of Americans. Why is the cult of rugged individualism driving climate disaster? What can older generations learned from teenagers at the decades on the frontlines? Peggy and Jane Have Not Stop Fighting. They are women who dare. Hi You know. We have a lot in common where activists arrested. But why have you decided to be arrested and to be active at this moment in time over Labor Day weekend? I felt great malaise because I drive an electric car and I do away with single use plastics and I make all those right personal lifestyle choices but I knew that they're not going to be able to scale up in time to get us where we need to be is a good place to start but it's no place to stop and so. I read a book by Klein that talked about a green new deal and talked about gratitude and it inspired me to get out of my comfort zone as Greta says we have to do and not behave business as usual as you know better than a lot of people. We have decades many decades more than forty years writing speeches and books and getting the word out about the science. What the science says. And we've marched and we've rallied and we've played nice and it hasn't worked enough and we only have eleven years left and so we have to up the stakes and I think we have to mobilize and go into the streets and put our bodies on the line and engage in civil disobedience and risk getting arrested. I don't WANNA BE ARRESTED. But you know you have to be willing to risk it so I went. I moved to DC for four months to win gaijin fired real Fridays because Fridays is the day that Greta and the student climate strikers have chosen to strike for climate so I want to support them and helpless their message teenagers today were born more than a decade after NASA scientists warned Congress about climate change in nineteen eighty eight. James Hansen told lawmakers at the time that he was ninety nine percent sure that human activity was causing temperatures to rise. Teenagers today have inherited the climate crisis. They have grown up. In a world of apocalyptic headlines and increasingly volatile weather. It's no surprise that they are extremely intelligent educated and now taking to the streets sweetest teenager. Greta Tonsberg inspired a wave of student protests across the world when she skipped school to strike outside of her country's parliament. And so how do you feel that? We really can motivate young people and youth to really be the strong activists that they need because they are going to inherit this climate this globe right now. What I'm feeling is I don't need to motivate them. They're motivating me. They're the ones because they see that we've taken their future not we. The fossil fuel industry has is robbing them of the future and we can't let them shoulder this burden by themselves. So Granny's unite. Older people have to get out there and and we have to stand along side them. This is a collective crisis that's going to require a collective solution that means all of us together because it is a stomach and we know that we can each take the issues that we need. Whether it's changing light bulbs whether it's recycling. We know that we can do all of those things. But we know that it's systemic and that we gotta come together collectively to educate our elected officials and to pressure the policymakers to really pass the kind of legislation that we all need. But we know that we can't do that with the message. Simply reducing carpet or a message. Simple energy efficiency. We've got a really embraced the values that appeal to all of our communities because Oliver Communities are not whole. They're not healthy. We know that millions of people in this country are living with bad air. They don't have clean water and they are disproportionately impacted by pollution and the Environmental Justice Movement has really for the last thirty years were to achieve environmental protection for all communities and we know also that when we talk about climate change and you hear people talk about climate justice. Climate Justice is not just a cool phrase. It's really a term that is focused on the most vulnerable communities. And how we've got to take action to ensure that the most vulnerable are protected because when that happens we're all protected and so we've got agreement deal and we know that that's been an important framework that's been proposed and it's wonderful that she was not prescriptive. Afc and the others who have talked about this framework we know that it has motivated sectors of of our country to get together and fill in the blanks. What they think is a green new deal what they need for their communities and for their lives and that's been a very important motivator. I think in this moment for a long time. There's been this rap that the environmental movement is white and elite. I think even Obama kind of felt that way but my experience is that that is not the case and then in fact people of color who live in the frontline communities have been very much at the forefront of the environmental movement and are the bravest strongest voices. It's a stereotype that people of color don't really care about the environment. Because they're really concerned with with jobs and food and of course we're all concerned with that but what? I've found predominantly above ninety sixth street when we have monthly membership meetings. It's not the more fluent Brown's donors who are coming out on these sites. It's people from public housing. We get so many calls about air pollution coming into their apartments about odors and emissions from trucks cars buses. We have worker training program for under employed young men and we invited them to come to our membership meetings to hear about issues of climate change or toxins in and chemicals cosmetics and they were able to understand the issue they were able for the probably the first time in their lives to talk to an elected official and tell them what they felt in what they needed and so it's about support. People know what they need. They just need some support to be able to advocate and to be able to. Maybe have a place to come and use computer. Have a place to come and ask some key questions. Let me just tell you that the upcoming mayoral public housing tenants are going to be a major factor in who gets elected and we're going to be organizing them and there's coalitions all over the city to ensure that some of the most vulnerable people are the ones who are going to be part of the solution and so I would simply say that the most vulnerable when we address them we lift all boats. It's not about trickle down. It's about lifting everyone up together and that's what creates an equitable and just society.

Former Vice President Al Gore talks climate change solutions in the Twin Cities

"Former Vice President Al Gore comes to Minnesota. I'm N._P._R.. Chief meteorologist Paul Hutton here. This is climate gas. He's arguably the most important historical figure in expanding climate change awareness in America <hes> and the world his two thousand six film an inconvenient truth introduce climate change science and solutions to millions. His work earned the Nobel Peace Prize this weekend former Vice President Al Gore is here in Minnesota training twelve hundred climate activists through his climate reality project. He sat down with me at the event in Minneapolis Mr Gore thanks for taking the time to talk with us on climate cast today and hey welcome to Minnesota. It's great to be back. You know you're here in the the twin cities this weekend for this climate reality project training event. Why did you start climate reality and what does this accomplish well because I came to the conclusion Susan that the only way we can change policies in time to solve the climate crisis is with grassroots pressure from every state in our country from every county and so I decided when my first movie came out I used one hundred percent of the profits from that movie and the book to <hes> to set up the climate reality project and to mobilize Aisa thousands of people tens of thousands of people to put pressure on their elected representatives and business leaders and civic leaders and community leaders nice to to make the changes that we need to make let's go back thirty one years ago this Summer Nastase Dr James Hansen testifies before your your committee in Congress and he says there's a ninety nine percent degree of confidence for a cause and effect relationship between the greenhouse effect and observed warming? How important was that testimony in your path to climate change awareness well? I think that was an important moment. <hes> in making lots of people realize is that this is for real and we need to do something about it unfortunately in the wake of that hearing and the others that I and other members of Congress Health <hes> the fossil fuel <hes> industries took the playbook prepared by the tobacco companies companies back when the doctors and scientists say hey folks <hes> smoking cigarettes causing lung cancer or disease and they hired actors dressed up as doctors and put him on T._V.. To falsely tell people that there was no health problem at all well that same blueprints what's been used by the fossil fuel companies with the point of bring that up is in a healthy democracy where the truth was turned into power testimony like that of Jim Hansen you asked about would have led to dramatic policy changes reason it hasn't is because of the political influence of the coal companies the oil companies in the gas companies but we're gaining on them and these grassroots activists including an impressive number of them here in Minnesota are really making progress ars you talk about policy. You came within a whisker of the presidency in President Gore I like to think it would have been completely and totally different of course in our country. A president has to persuade the Congress Congress and asked to be a skillful politician and getting support for his or her initiatives but I like to think I would have been able to to put in completely different policies that would help to avoid some of this <hes> heartache and hardship and I still think we can do that. We've lost some ground for sure. Some damage has been made inevitable now unfortunately but we still have time to avoid the most catastrophic consequences so rather than looking back and crying over spilt milk as they say. I look forward and try to figure out what I can do to serve in different way. Just watch you give what we might. Call the talk talk at this climate reality event not that dissimilar from the one you used in an inconvenient truth but how has your presentation changed in the thirteen years since the the movie is changed dramatically in a lot of ways because I can bring up examples of floods or droughts or storms or whatever whatever not from ten years ago but from yesterday or last week and literally every night on television news is like a nature ager. I threw the book of revelation and the examples that illustrate all of what the scientists have been warning us about are all around us now every single day. I think that does make an impression on people I know it. Does it makes an impression on me. Yeah I WANNA get your assessment of where we are with the big big picture on climate change today. We're seeing the positive side rapid progress on solutions like renewables Minnesota here. We generate twenty five percent of our electric power. You're from renewables as you know last year. That's way faster than people thought it would happen fifteen years ago. Public opinion is shifting. We know that a little bit and yet greenhouse gas emissions are still rising globally and this administration is basically a wall or going backwards on solution so what's the right urgency level here and what's your assessment of how this plays out for the next ten to twenty years the dramatic truth is that those of us who are alive today we have in our hands decisions to make that will have enormous consequences for thousand generations to come. Tom and that sounds overly dramatic but it's the case. We're putting one hundred ten million tonnes every day of this heat. Trapping pollution into the sky stays there for a thousand years on average and it's trapping so much extra heat <hes> the amount of extra heat energy every day is equal to five hundred thousand or Rocha uh-huh class atomic bombs exploding every day. That's crazy but that's what we're doing. Now what I think you're getting at in the first part of your question is how do we see this. They're contracting interesting trend some good some bad <hes>. We're gaining momentum for the solutions but we're not yet gaining on the crisis crisis because the crisis is still getting worse faster than we are mobilizing solutions yet because we're gaining momentum we may soon have within our capacity the ability to gain on the problem there was a famous economists in the last century name. Rudy Dornbush who once said things take longer to happen than you think they will but then they happen much faster than you thought they could. I think think that it's likely to be true. Where are solutions to this crisis. It's taken longer than many of us thought. It would hoped it would anyway but. But I think that we're now getting to the point where it could happen faster than anybody can imagine to take one example <hes> when the cost of electricity <hes> pity from solar and win gets not only cheaper than electricity from Cohen Gas but way cheaper then no matter how much political political power the fossil fuel companies have it would just take a complete idiot to continue spending way more money than necessary to create dirtier and expensive electricity when you can have it for much cheaper when cleaner air and more jobs and I think we're right in that region now where we're going to see see this flip over and more rapid change. I hope that I'm not pollyannish or overly optimistic but that's the pattern I see unfolding right now. Let's talk about about how that seems to be happening a little bit. I mean if you look at investors. The big insurance firms Swiss re Munich REC- this changing catastrophic loss model we saw P._G.. Any go bankrupt <hes> because of the fire liability in California right. I mean some saying that's the I fortune five hundred climate bankruptcy. How important is this growing investor risk awareness in driving that positive change you talk about Oh. I think it's extremely important there was a story this this morning about the largest private investor black rock losing many billions on fossil fuel investments and they're still the largest fossil fuel in bed. I'm not picking on my in respect them a lot but there so many investors who are taking a close look at the fact that these carbon assets <unk> are really not that different from the subprime mortgages of a few years ago you know there were seven and a half million subprime mortgages meaning mortgages that it looked as if they were triple. A. Rated assets with a value that was based on <hes> false assumptions when actually they were worthless because they'd been given out to people that couldn't make monthly payments and good make down payments and there was a mass delusion and people finally pull pull back the layers of the onion enough to see the truth of it and they suddenly collapsed and that's what caused the credit crisis and then the great recession well. We've now got twenty two trillion dollars worth of carbon assets the reserves of coal and oil and gas and the stocks and these as multinational companies that are based on the assumption that all that fossil fuels going to be burnt well it can't be burn won't be burned not just because of some mm treaty or some law but because solar and wind is going to be much cheaper and efficiency is reducing the demand for what they're selling an electric cars or a progressively destroying the market for liquid petroleum assets and it's only a matter of time before they wake up to this the largest sovereign wealth fund in the world the Norwegian Fund which got all his money from oil and gas. They're really smart. They just announced they're going to divest one hundred percent for from oil and gas assets a so those who are taking the time to read the handwriting on the wall are coming to the conclusion that they need to get with this change and move onto into renewables and the sustainability revolution.

"All woven out of worthless. Venezuelan currency, Amy, I never thought or imagined I've worked with boulevard. But since people were throwing the bills away, and they were worthless. I started using them to make crafts. I'm Ari Shapiro. We look at why Venezuela's currency collapsed this afternoon on all things considered from NPR news. Weekdays starting at four on WNYC. This is fresh air. Let's get back to my interview with methanol rich, author of the new book losing earth a recent history, it's about climate change. And why we fail to solve the problem when we had the chance the book focuses nineteen seventy nine to eighty nine looking at the scientists politicians and the oil industry, the people who were leading the efforts to change and the people who were blocking them, you said in an interview interview that you spent an enormous amount of time researching the oil industry and their efforts in in blocking the efforts to curb carbon emissions, and you also said that it actually plays a very little part in your book didn't use much of your research. So why is that? The industry has been following this issue for longtime. You know, there are studies from Exxon or even humble oil the predecessor tax on going back into the mid nineteen fifties. And even then those studies were not about whether or not this was happening. It was really the question was how much of the co- added CO two in the atmosphere was because of Exxon basically because of the fossil fuel industry, and they continue to monitor this over the decades. There were occasional sort of co two working groups study groups, this was going on also at the American Petroleum Institute of the big trade group for the gas industry and at some of the other companies and those efforts continued through the eighties. But it was never hot during that decade. Obviously things have changed quite dramatically. But during that decade, it was never a high priority. And I and I spoke with a lot of people who worked in the industry during that time and people at the highest levels of API, and they really weren't concerned about it be in part because there was no serious efforts in DC to to pass laws or policies to reduce emissions and it wasn't really until Hansen James Hansen. The NASA scientists spoke before congress in eighty eight and generated a huge sort of huge national headlines that they started to worry and the story of how they began to mobilize this multi Cato effort to so propaganda disinformation to buy off politicians. And scientists and ultimately to convert an entire political party to denial ISM is the seeds of that you see emerging in the in the weeks and months after the Hanson hearing, but before that it was really on the back burner. So let's talk about how the oil industry's lobbying efforts changed at the end of the eighties. Where your book ends you write about how the American Petroleum Institute. Started funding a lobbying group they formed the lobbying organization the global climate coalition, and what did this lobbying group due to mobilize public opinion? To be skeptical of climate science. Yeah. It's sort of a remarkable turn of events in that after Hansen's hearing, their these high level conversations at the American Petroleum Institute and at Exxon about essentially, what do we what do we do about this? It's it seems clear that regulation is coming. You know, George Bush is talking about it and so on and they essentially reached the same conclusions. Exxon API, they say, we need to be an active participant in any kind of policy discussion, we need to burnish our credentials as scientific experts on the subject. So we've credibility in it. We need to make sure that the science that the policy doesn't extend beyond what the science says emphasize uncertainty where it exists that would become crucial later on. And then perhaps most important. Don't don't don't accept any policy. That will hurt the bottom line. That's the beginning of it. And then as almost an afterthought at the time. API through his press office, which is coordinating the press for this industry group. Global climate coalition starts to reach out to a couple of scientists who are friendly with the industry who have expressed some doubt about either ozone or or CO two and they start encouraging them to speak to the press. Sometimes that encouragement takes the form of payouts. The head of the program told me, they they gave two thousand dollars to a scientist whenever you wrote an op Ed for a national publication, and that is almost an afterthought at the time. It's it's it's pretty low on the totem pole of what they're doing. They're also meeting with congressman and so on but it pays enormous dividends. Because all of a sudden national news publications start quoting these scientists since really a handful of people for five people. Over and over again, and an issue that at this point has been a story about fear of of what's going to happen all of a sudden has two sides. And of course, that's like catnip for for for journalists. And all of a sudden, you have a number of pieces that start to appear that said say, maybe there's not scientific consensus about this problem right by generating controversy around climate change where it sounds like before that was it wasn't there weren't people denying there were people saying based on your research there there were people saying, well, we don't really know for sure how bad things are going to be do. We really wanna risk the economy. Oh over science. That's not kind of nailed down yet. We don't know what the consequences will be or when they'll be exactly. So let's kind of keep the status quo as long as we can. So it goes from that to like, oh, the whole notion of climate change is controversial there's two sides. So is that is that like one of the innovations of the late eighties making controversial with two sides and one of the sides saying this this science really might not be true at all. Yeah. Exactly. And it starts almost tentatively. It starts saying. Well, it's not as certain as we think as as people say is James Hansen says it is there's problems with the climate models. The computer models that that, you know, Hansen uses and then it goes into we really don't know what the, you know, the regional effects will be, and it grows and grows. It's almost like they're encouraged by their success, and they become. More and more brazen. And then ultimately you get after a number of years into the nineties you get into this bizarro universe. Where all of a sudden, they're questioning the the basic fundamental science itself. And of course, that science goes back to just nineteen seventy nine, but but to the late nineteenth century about, you know, what's the effect of pumping a bunch of c o two into the atmosphere and the warming will that cause. And and it's so it's we've entered this weird funhouse round. Where now if you jump ahead to the present day, you have a political party, the only major political party in in the world that endorses a position that's essentially to the right? Even of what the industry now says in their public statements, you know, Exxon publicly today doesn't deny climate change. But you have a party that does. And so it's it's I think it's something that future historians will spend a lot of time piecing out is how this sort of little lie grew into a big, lie and overwhelmed, our our politics. Do you think it's fair to say that the fossil fuel industry invented the idea of climate denial? Yeah. I think that's fair to say, okay. This is interesting you say that the industry the fossil fuel industry. So an upside to the warming trends of climate change. What was the upside for them? Oh, well, there are few. I mean drilling in the Arctic is one of them, which he sees starting to happen now drilling in the Arctic because of the permafrost melting you because yeah is melting and so that opens up shipping passages, and you can get to more oil. And of course, they were studying that back in the eighties as well. You know, looking there, and and, but but also one of the early findings from from API was that in a warmer world, you'd need more energy, essentially more air conditioning, and that would you know further for the industry profits. My guest isn't a thin rich author of the new book losing earth a recent history. We'll talk more about climate change, and what stood in the way of taking action to stop or slow it. And how young activists today are redefining the issue after we take a short break. We'll also hear Kentucky's review of Billy eyelashes debut album. I'm Terry gross. And this is fresh air.

"Small amounts of radiant particulate matter that escaped from Fukushima as a result, the climate scientist James Hansen, and a colleague found that nuclear plants they can actually credit nuclear plants with saving nearly two million lives today. Eight lives that would have been lost to air pollution. Yup. That's the calculation. I mean, fewer than two hundred people from zero from Fukushima but over two million lives. Saved that would have otherwise been lost to air pollution, even in sunny, southern California or in sunny, California solar farm requires four hundred and fifty times more land to produce the same amount of energy as a nuclear plant. And here's where the real world example comes in a single coke cans worth of uranium provides all of the energy that the most gluttonous American or Australian lifestyle requires all of the waste fuel from forty five years of Swiss nuclear Swiss nuclear program can fit in canisters on a basketball court like warehouse where like all spent nuclear fuel. It has never hurt a fly. Nope. By contrast panels require seventeen times more materials in the form of cement glass, concrete and steel then do nuclear power plants and create over two hundred times more waste. It it actually makes me laugh, right? It actually makes me laugh, you know, just the process alone of creating these solar panels create a ton more waste and cause problems. I love this part experts fear that you know. Okay. So a solar payer has about a twenty to twenty five year lifespan, and it's got to be replaced right experts. Fear that these spent solar panels will be shipped along with other forms electric waste to be disassembled by poor communities in Africa and Asia whose residents will be exposed to the dust from toxic heavy metals, including lead cadmium chromium. So all you environmentalists. That are touting love, your solar panels and tickets, so great, do you feel good about what happens to those solar panels of their lifespan when they get shipped the third world countries and individually killing people with the waste of that they are that are released as their disassembled and right around this time yesterday, one of our one of our favorite callers, Don in Burnsville called up and talked about well, you know, you just we. If we if we took the same mentality that you guys had we'd never would have tried to go to the moon. So we just have to try. Well, if you're talking about renewables being safer, the answer is no wind turbines, surprisingly, kill more people than nuclear power plants. It's true that you can stand next to a solar panel without much harm while if you stand next to a nuclear reactor at full power, you'll die, but when it comes to generating power for billions of people it turns out that producing solar and wind collectors and spreading them over large areas has vastly worse to impact on humans and wildlife alike. And again, this is all coming from an individual who completely one hundred percent believes in global warming was happy that President Barack Obama got elected because he felt like you'd be able to go and push the green agenda through through all these renewables. But when they actually went and looked at it the true cell set you free. You know, but the truth is out of style right now. The truth is a matter. Nuclear plants are a revolutionary technology a grand historical break from fossil fuels as significant as the industrial transition from would to fossil fuels before it. Nobody wants to embrace nuclear nuclear is the only problem with nuclear is that it's unpopular, right? That's it. That is the only problem with nuclear. It has been a victim of a fifty year long concerted effort by fossil fuel renewable energy anti nuclear weapons. Campaigners and misanthropic environmentalists to ban the technology. Hey, you know, what you can't run a submarine on? A solar panel and a windmill. Of course, you know. We're totally fine pudding. Brave men and women in metal cans, you know, to to protect the country powered by, you know, towards the basically sitting in one big gigantic canned of nuclear power, right? We'll we'll do that. And it's efficient, and it's great, and we use that for a reason man, but heaven forbid, we go and use that very same same technology to actually go and have us power our daily lives, and this this this this bar blew me away. France shows you can look at what happened in France. And they show that moving from a mostly nuclear electricity to a mix of nuclear and renewables results in more carbon emissions due to using more natural gas and higher prices. Do the.

"Will become increasingly unhealthy and uninhabitable. Now you and I can laugh at this and recognize it for the ridiculous theory that it is that within twelve years the planet's going to be uninhabitable. This is just as laughable as Al Gore saying by what twenty twelve the polar ice caps are going to have no ice while by twenty twelve there was record ice cover for the polar ice caps and everybody just sort of forgot about wealth, the Paul Erlich very famous clients climate, scientists called the population bomb that if humanity ever hit I believe it was six billion people that there were going to be so many food shortages that humanity would die off. Of course. Everybody remembers Newsweek in the nineteen seventies. The coming ice age you have James Hansen who is a leader in the climate hysteric move. Movement. He has been getting things remarkably wrong for thirty years now. So we can laugh at these. But people particularly millennials are taking this to heart. They really truly believe that there might not be a planet left in a decade. Even cure Ston gillibrand. She's a Senator from New York running for president. She was on CBS news this morning, and she's supposed to be a moderate. She's supposed to be a reasonable voice within the Democratic Party yet. Even she is falling victim to this hysteria. Children to be poisoned by the water. They drink or the air that they breathe the poisoned. They're going to be literally poisoned. Interestingly enough. She is. Right. That people are being poisoned by the water. They drink in democrat controlled strongholds like Flint, Michigan Milwaukee. Wisconsin is set a problem with lead in its drinking water, basically everywhere. Democrats have had control for years they've been ignoring and then lying about the severity. Of leading the water, but this has gotten so severe that on the BBC today. There were a couple of women who are leading a movement not to have children because the climate is going to be so devastating. Blyth Peppino is the founder of what's called the birth strike movement. She says she is going on strike. She is not going to give birth because of climate change Sharma is in. I kind of collapse the natural world is collapsing around us, and that's actually happening right now. And I'm so disappointed by the response by authorities to this crisis. So freaked out by it. Everything I've read. That I've I've basically last year I came to the decision. I couldn't bring a child into that. And I was asking around and people that I know put a little bit out and Facebook unveil is actually quite the people making this decision. Yeah. So he realized it was really really important to tell the public that there are people out there. So scared about this that I feel that they can't actually have a family. Listen to what she's saying they're so scared that they don't believe that they could have a family. They're terrified of what the planet is going to look like they're terrified to bring children into this world because they so buy into this hysterical pronouncement from what essentially amounts to a doomsday cult. You. Tell me what's fundamentally any different from the Democratic Party today saying we're all going to die in climate change, and the people that were putting on Nike's following the HALE Bopp comet remember that in the nineteen nineties wherever that the Heaven's Gate cult you tell me the fundamental difference here in the belief system. I'm not, of course, saying that Democrats are going to be advocate. Mass suicide, but they're already talking about. They've got people honest to God convinced that if you bring a child into the world that it'll be like Cormac McCarthy's the road. It'll be you in that kid walking along a post apocalyptic hell scape. Desperately trying to avoid cannibals in. What way is this responsible rhetoric coming from politics, and there are people who say, well, Dan, Dan, Dan, Dan, Dan, they don't really believe that the earth is going to end in twelve years. They're just trying to kick people like you in the butt to get them convinced that we need to spend ninety three trillion dollars on a green new deal. Riddle me this then Batman, why is Alexandria Cossio Cortez? Still being driven around in an SUV. Why was she just pictured even though she says you can't eat meat because cows far too much, and that's putting too much c co two into the atmosphere. Why is she pictured chief of staff? Having a big hamburger meal. They don't really believe this stuff. But the point is they get you scared enough, and it's clearly working with people like Blyth Peppino Alice Brown is I believe her partner, and she is one of about sixty people in the UK. They have convinced sixty people to not have children to not propagate the species. And I know you might be saying at this point. Well, if they really believe this may be for purposes, it's probably better that the gene pool is not quite so diluted. But they're honestly scared to have children. This is Alice. Brow? Stiflingly is is a struggle. I really do. I'm so depressed. I feel so hopeless over how I'm reading just in the last couple of months, even the insects numbers. Plummeting so fast now threatens the class nature that we're losing losing destroying biodiversity. So quickly that that threatens off on the UN have said that that can lead to the risk of extinction. They were going on TV to say the collapse of civilization could come from. This is so hard to really say within taking and but I have done that. And that has led to. Just a fair that I've never felt before my decision for being on strike and mostly has come from not one thing to pass out fair onto someone else. If if we're in the situation now, even since my parents had me we've destroyed sixty percent of of life on this planet. What would that be like when my child's light? So let me ten cents dots. Not just to do with being you know in nature wildlife, and these yes like, I am not such fee. Dangerous lao. Do you hear what do you hear the fear in her voice? She is honest to goodness convinced that if she brings a child into the world, it would actually be a cruelty inflicted on that child that is such warped thinking that you almost can't even fathom it, but it's being fueled. And it's being fed. Now, what did President Obama very famously say about people in red states who wouldn't vote for they were bitter Clinger's? They bitterly clean. To their guns and religion, the implication is that they're scared. They're scared of change. They're terrified of the world around them. What is this rhetoric doing other than scaring people into a very real fear of having children? And now we're starting to see it. And I'll grant you it is a tiny tiny fraction of people who are not having kids because of climate change. But you're starting to see that calculation factor into millennials actually decided whether or not to have kids. It's no longer can I afford it. It's no longer. What should our lives? Be. Like do. We want four kids. Do we want one kid? Do we want? No kids..
