"That are moon doesn't make a difference resiliency? I do think we're zillion see is kind of the common theme here. One of the things add surprises me as well is at resiliency was part of every other crisis. Reface it's what happened in England during World War Two and yet in America. We've polarized so much. Even this corona virus even whether or not be heard immunity or even whether or not we should keep a lockdown on for two more weeks becomes a partisan issue. Why is that well? I have an so troubled and dispirited Even though I'm trying to control my mood of divisions that are being created on purpose for political reasons I am Have I am a political scientist and I kind of love to study How governments operate and Decision. Making and the American system is endlessly fascinating. The constitutionists fascinating people. Forget that the first article of the Constitution is about the power Congress and the only the second one is about executive power. But I think that what is happening is because We I think waited too long to deal with the the virus Then you get into blame. Placing and the that creates automatic divisions between the federal government and the states and the governor's or blaming the mayor's or it's a blame game instead of a solution finding operation and it has been totally politicized I'd juicing by the President of the United States which I find very very sad and I have been asked whether I think he's You know doesn't believe in America. I think he's un-american because he doesn't understand our value system are and only propagates the divisions rather than trying to figure out how we find solutions together. You've written a new book which is just coming out about your life since being secretary of state and one of the many things you write about is organizing a group of What you could call madeline and our axes meaning former foreign ministers who you dealt with to keep meeting each year and thank you madam. Couple of years ago and then you took in Kansas City. This past year you went from the home of Louis the fourteen who said Lake Dot. Same Watt meaning. I am the state I you know. I'm in charge. I won everything To the home of Harry Truman who had a sense of humility that comes from being the president is at one of the lessons. You feel. We should apply today. I think definitely because here was a person that had risen to this incredible job through a variety ways of having served in the military and had a shop and then He was very political But I think the best thing about him was he took responsibility and one of the things that we saw there was the original sign that said the buck stops here which he had on his desk because he knew the thing. President United States ultimately meant that you that you had responsibility and that You worked with others. So they're all kinds of lessons from Harry Truman. I have to say he was my first American president. We came to the United States November eleventh nineteen forty eight and he had just been elected in his own right And so I followed his life and the way he talks And what he did but his clarity and responsibility is something that I think stands out especially you write that when you read about an international crisis you reflexively insert your name and place of the current secretary of state and think about what you might be doing in this situation so let me ask you. What would you be doing now if you were secretary of State? Well it doesn't make me seem very self centered but I am interested in the Secretary. States role is and how it works. I think that I would actually be doing much. Lower to reach out to those that we have to work with The partners and Really try to work and do kind of a a whole of government from the perspective of the United States because the secretary of State with the National Security Advisor can set the agenda and bring in other parts of their governments as well as mean foreigners that one has to deal with which would be trying to figure out how the intelligence community works together But I think that we're not taking advantage enough of the foreign policy capabilities of the State Department because in fact State Department has been kind of of Weakened in a number of ways by the number of people that have left or have been nastily and by the funding of it. So I don't know what the current secretary is doing in terms of trying to help the funding trying to in fact work with others abroad I think he's done some travel but is unclear what he's doing your famous for writing a book about those pens that you wear fact. It even became a traveling exhibition where your fans went on displays in museums around the country. What's you're wearing today? My father was with the Czechoslovak government in exile and his job was to broadcast over BBC into Czechoslovakia And he was gone. Bbc All the time. And I was a little girl and I listened to BBC and I know the following thing which is every broadcast open with the notes. The opening notes. Beethoven stiff done it. I knew him and in Morse Code. That is big Sherie and so I thought a V for victory Against the virus would be something that is appropriate or today and also reference back to my book. Secretary Madeleine Albright.

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

"Think it is too today renting one question for one of our listeners. Whose name is Matt News. From Buffalo Grove Illinois. I have a question for Vice President Biden and governor inslee. This is a stressful time. And I'm wondering if you can both tell us what you do to stress relief from the anxiety when I hear the current Ludicrous noses out of the White House. Well I try to ride my bike and I got to read about thirty miles. Yesterday it was a Beautiful Day. I felt like a young man. I'm fifty five again. You know I felt great and I tell you what I look forward to. Those is playing on my grandkids again. You know this has been a stressful time for all of us and that I really forward to that day because that actually the ultimate relaxation. I know we're all looking forward to that. Well you know it's funny. We talked about this before. But it's the same thing with me. I Have A. I love to ride the bike although now I have a presidential secret service with men. There's a lot of and so it's Kinda hard you know. You're going to be a little constrained. But that's a price worth paying to say they're and they're wonderful. I didn't mean that but but I work out every morning and and the other thing we do is We do a whole lot of zooming with our grandkids. Yeah for real and Yesterday had five o'clock all the grandkids got on son daughter and everybody and we just talked for anywhere about half an hour and exchange. Well we're all doing. I got a six year old grandson. Who you know. We're doing remote learning because we had to close house obviously and he was given one of his science assignments to go out and make a list of birds and he was very excited. He told me on the phone a couple of days ago that he got his list. This is a lifeless. Or He's going to do the rest of his life. He had three inches. One Robin and three crows now. I'm very proud of is a six year old and I'm very proud of him. It's proud but whoever finds one robin I mean you see one Robert? I was very very odd. We'll look I kept you long time. I hope we can come on. You know the election and talking some more detail about global warming and the like but I think i. I think you're one of the really great governors and you do any job in the country but I really. I really appreciate your advice. You give me and I know I'm always bugging you for advice and input but I really mean it and what you've done in Washington state is real. It's consequential and I think that we can turn with the with a little bit of luck we can turn this. God Awful Circumstance. We're facing the corona virus into an opportunity. But we're going to come out of this stronger. I believe that Mister Vice President. I'm proud to endorse you for being the next president. United States for many reasons. I know that you have a willingness to follow science and really help us get us out of the cove in nineteen crisis. You're gonNA bring a reason to approach to that rather than just ignoring doctors. You'RE GONNA follow their advice a year to be honest with us which we don't have right now in the White House you're going to have a concrete plan for you know action within the next ten years to develop clean energy plan so we just don't handle twenty-fifty. I know that you have efforts to really do things in the next ten years and I'm very excited about this. I WANNA mention whether they're saying though that you should know that is at this time of great anxiety and suffering I think you're perfect for the moment to help to give people comfort and confidence in the reason I said that is it. I saw you help families. I don't know if you remember this but you out at joint. Base Lewis mcchord in Washington. Remember years back and you're comforting four families who lost their soldiers and I watched you tell them the story about how your grief that you had near. Life is over time term to the joy of memories and when I talked to those families that meant a lot to them and we need somebody with that human connection right now in this position and I believe you gotTa unique talent to to trade your heart for theirs and I just want to tell you. I can't wait to start providing that to America. Well thank you very much. Look I've received so much support and empathy for the things I've gone through my life loss of family and like but you know and I know you know. Think of all those people out there today who are alone who are and whether it's related to the corona virus from or not a friend of ours. Tell us how they had to say goodbye to their mom over. Telephone another friend. Who visited her mom in a nursing home? Thank God she's not dying but Just putting your hand up against the window and just just saying hey mom I'm here people just but there's so many people who've stepped up so many people have stepped up. You know you and I've talked before about my notion about. We had to return the soul of America. Where the soul of America? Yeah with ordinary hard working people who are busting going through. I've been through in a lot worse without the help I've had without the family. I've had getting up every morning. Put One foot in front of the other and it's remarkable country remarkable country. We can't forget these people though once we're out of this we can't forget them. We have changed the institutional circumstances. They find themselves in economically as well as in terms of their health. And we can do it. We can change. I think the American people kind of like blinders have been taken off and they've seen people that they're always saw but never understood how consequential they were before never understood. Just how important that person's stacked on the shelf and a grocery store is just how important that person driving. That mail truck is just how important that person is who walks into the hospital and is behind you to after they've rescued you. I mean it's just I pray to God. This is one of those moments where we move beyond where we were not just back to where we were. Anyway you're helping..

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

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

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

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

Suggesting it's okay to carry pot onto a plane that buzz emanating from southern California is the Los Angeles International airport policy that says travelers are now allowed to pack marijuana when flying out of LAX, according to the Los Angeles Times if it's legal on the street, it's legal at the airport. All bets are off though when it comes to passing through a federal TSA checkpoint. It's unclear if federal authorities will be lax about the LAX policy. Meanwhile, at seatac airport port of Seattle Commissioner Ryan Kalkin says the day may come when we'd is allowed on planes for flights within a state where pot is legal, but he adds such. Policy would have little impact in Washington. Fourteen hundred flights per day coming going from seatac and the vast majority of flights are either overseas or other states. And so I suspect that it's a policy that wouldn't have broad implications. Even if we considered it for now pod is just as legal at seatac as it is at LAX right up until you try to board a plane Corwin Hake. Komo news.
