"jerry boston" Discussed on Diane Rehm: On My Mind
"Now here's debris of my conversation. Saved with David Wallace Wells. He is deputy editor and climate columnist for New York magazine. He's the author of the the book titled The Uninhabitable Earth. Tell me Your Hell. The politicians in Australia are responding responding most especially the prime minister. The Prime Minister Scott Morrison was elected last year or re elected last year in a campaign that he won by surprise in part by emphasizing the cost of taking action on climate change. It was actually an election. Unlike like many other that we've seen in the West that have deprioritize climate issues. This was an election that sort of hung on the question of whether the country should be more aggressive taking taking action on climate and decarbonisation and his opponent was expected to win running on a campaign focused on decarbonisation and taking action on climate change. ENJ and Morrison won a surprise reelection by saying that would be too expensive and problematic so he is in the sort of model of Donald Trump in the US US and Jerry Boston. In Brazil to a lesser extent Putin in Russia people who are who see themselves as opponents of aggressive climate action and have made that a part of their public profile and he is honored that during this disaster. It's been quite a to my mind. Grotesque display of public leadership because the country is in an unprecedented natural disaster crisis that has now been unfolding for several months and he has spent most of at that time basically indifferent to that crisis because he is so boxed himself in as at least a climate skeptic if not an outright denier now he's over the last couple a couple of weeks taken a slightly more aggressive posture. He came back from a two week vacation in Hawaii during some of the most intense burning and has mobilized the military so he's beginning beginning to sort of take action at least on at the level of trying to protect the citizens of Australia rather than hanging them out to dry as had had been the case for the six weeks before but I think the country as a whole has seen has behavior as sort of reprehensible in different and I think he'll be paying a Quite dramatic political price in in the weeks and months ahead. I think his popularity is likely never to recover because he's done such a poor job even putting aside the question of Australia's long-term carbon trajectory. He's done such a poor job simply managing the fact of the natural disaster. Making sure that people who need to the evacuated are evacuated in a timely orderly way and keeping the citizens of the country save not to mention the ecological devastation. That's that's come through the the whole country you know wiping out whole ecosystems and putting pushing many animals and animal species to the brink of extinction. This is obviously a lesser concern than the life if if humans but still still Australians. Care very much. About of course and in fact didn't he come back somewhat reluctantly from his vacation. Yeah he well. He sort of pretended that he wasn't on vacation. And then you've got out at and he had to return it was just I mean really terrible. Political we'll optics to put aside even the direct suffering that he was helping. 'cause I mean just to be lying on the beach while the country burns in fact there were climate talks folks in Madrid jobs last month and I gather Australia was one of the parties including the United States. Sworn adding those who's climate talks. One of the sticking points is that Australia was basically trying to sort of technical and complicated to explain but they wanted to use credits that they had had built up in previous climate treaties. Basically to make it seem as though they were meeting their commitments under more recent climate treaties and that basically torpedoed all the progress that could have been made at those talks in Madrid and there they were not the only nation that torpedo those talks the US plated bladed a crippling role as well and several other nations to but Australia you know they're they're particularly visible saboteur of this ongoing international negotiation because they are the first world country at least that is being hit with the most intense climate impacts in general climate. Change is hitting the developing world I and most intensely and that will probably continue what science expect to see happen. That it'll be the the global south Hit Hardest Australia is sort of the one out liar. They're they're the they're the they're the one really wealthy nation in the world that is dealing with a kind kind of climate change impacts that are otherwise only hitting the poor nations of the world. And so it's a an especially important case. Study in how the wealthy West will respond to climate change. Going forward and the results at least from Australia are are quite dispiriting. The politics as moved away from climate action rather than in the right direction it may be that these wildfires turn things around but that remains to be seen. You had the Guardian newspaper. Put it this way. A Australia took a match to U. N.. Climate talks while back home. The country burned. You can't argue with that perspective. You've you know. I think if you look at the public opinion polls in Australia. Most of the public believes climate. Change is real most of the public is concerned about it and most even say that they want their government government to be acting quite aggressively I two decarbonised and also to combat the impacts of climate change. The problem is that that doesn't always translate when those people are going to the polls and voting for their leaders and I worry that that pattern will be replicated elsewhere around the world in the US depending on how you ask the question but somewhere between cleaned seventy and eighty percent of Americans are concerned about climate change and yet we have a climate skeptic in the White House who may well be reelected next year that's true also across Europe the numbers and the polls are quite strong people seek they say they see climate change as a kind of an excess near term existential threat and yet in very few countries of the world. Are there even political parties. That are really prioritizing action. On climate and that disjuncture disjuncture could really be problematic. Going forward where people are concerned. The public is concerned but it takes a very long time for our politics respond. If it ever ever does Leaving US basically out to dry considering that Australia usually and counters cooler weather and rain reign as the year moves on. Are you optimistic that these fires will in fact die down fairly soon. I think the scientists expected they will be burning somewhat dramatically. At least through the end of this month in January January is sort of peak summer for Australia. So we're just heading into real fire season. I don't expect that this is going to be a permanent feature of Australian life to begin with the more dramatic. The fires are the less Bush will leave behind for future fire seasons to burn. That's one of the sort of perverse products of such a devastating fire season that the next year's are likely to be much less dramatic because there simply isn't anything there to burn anymore that leads the land itself pretty devastated date absolutely. No I mean it would be crippling for agriculture especially for the national forest and protected wildlife in the country. Many of those fires have been totally devastated. It's one reason why the The loss of animal life has been so dramatic because many of the places that have burned most quickly have been nature preserves herbs and that that is quite concerning quite distressing quite depressing for the country but it also means that in the next few years they may have some kind of reprieve but in the big picture. Climate Change means that we're going to be having many more of these kinds of fire. Events going forward much more regularly. The heat wave that Australia had a few weeks ago where they set really dramatic heat records on consecutive days at the moment. That's that was considered once in a century event but at about one more degree of warming scientists say which I think is about an inevitable level of warming it would become just a once in a decade event. So we're likely to see that ten times more often than than we do. Today is his something that seems very minor in the larger picture but I am planning to travel by boat to Australia in mid March. What would your prediction be in terms of weather and and smoke and ash by? Then my guess is that by the fires will have been contained died down but will not have been entirely defeated. He did and that there probably will be some air issues but not nearly as dramatic as they are today but it's really ultimately to be determined. It's hard to make predictions fiction that far out because it really depends on how the weather evolves and it's hard to know that really more than a few more than a few days out with any certainty but given the rhythms of the fire season in the past. I would expect that things would be subsiding by them but not entirely extinguished. Do you think Australia will adapt to these by hers to these rising temperatures and accommodate or do you believe that Australia could become doomed. Because of rising temperatures and climate change are tend to think that it's hard to to bet against the adaptability and resilience of human species. The question is what are we adapting to what level of suffering or we accommodating ourselves to so if the country is dealing with fires like these say once a decade that doesn't mean that life can't continue their but it will mean that life will be quite right damaged and degraded and that there will be quite a lot more human suffering. Then today we would consider acceptable or conscionable and I think in general. That's the pattern. We're likely to see with climate. Change generally will be able to adapt to some things with new technology and new political approaches will be able to protect ourselves from some. I'm impacts but also will simply decide to define certain levels of suffering which one seemed unacceptable as newly acceptable in our in our brave new. I'm at world and that's a tragedy and it's an indictment of our in action but I think it's also practically speaking an inevitability. It's the way that we respond to human suffering for the most part today not by radical it but accommodating ourselves to it and that's the dynamic that I'm most worried about going forward thank you for being with us.

"We'll get to that a little bit. Okay so democrats are meeting in atlanta with officials from the democratic senatorial campaign committee and the d._n._c. <hes> these groups want to pick who the democrat democrat is going to be to run the isaac since they're really really concerned about a situation where the governor pick someone to replace johnny isakson soon that person is able to serve january to november build name i._d. As an as an actual senator raise money as an actual senator and then you have three thousand democrats who all wanna get advanced to show up and try to beat them and what happens is the democrats divide themselves up five ways to none and the republican incumbent senator is actually elected. They're deeply worried about that so what the national democrats want to do. Is they want to come down and they want to pick the winner in advance. Now i gotta tell you i am at least intellectually consistent on this. I think primaries do a good thing. I think primaries series forced candidates to do a better job. Take the sixth congressional district. There are a lot of people i know who are mad at me for backing karen handel again in the sixth congressional district considering. She lost against lucy and i get it. I do not think it was her fault. I think there were external factors at play. I think that the outside groups abandoned the ground game. <hes> the race was very close. She would've won. She was let down by outside groups. It was not her fault. She did everything she could in a waiver for the democrats and she lost and not by much. I say give it another another shot. She knows the district's knows the people she has the name i._d. Go fort. I understand that the people they're concerned the other side but <hes> i've had several friends ends of mind say you you know you should also if you're supporting karen you should be browbeating the other people and trying to get them out of the race and i have no intention of doing that and the reason i i have no intention of doing that is because i think a primary makes a stronger general election candidate. Now there are people who say well. They're gonna spend all their money in the primary and they're going to have done for the general i get that's a valid concern but i think it is far better to vet the candidates through a primary process than it is to have them run without a primary and essentially that's what the democrats want they do is they want to deny someone to clarify in process of a primary and thrust them into what is essentially a general election without having been vetted in excuses that while you're all going to be on the ballot together so what i think what will happen otherwise is let's. Let's be honest here. The democrats do not have strong bench right now. That's just the honest fact name measure with the exception of stacey abrahams name a major democrat in the state you there really aren't any there you can say michael thurmond who who is is how old and been wearing and done what for how long win john barrow same situation <hes> becoming rapidly perennial candidate who were the prominent democrats in the state eight of georgia there really aren't any. You're having to go down to people like jerry boston the d._a..

Lot about the the old days in the sort of the the Genesis of the of the winter hill, what became the winter hill gang. And that was so tell us about buddy McLean. Well, like, you said he was the originator of the gang. He was a hard working, man. He was tough as nails a lot of people considered him. The toughest man in Boston. He had to be with his fists. Yeah. In handy with a gun that too. Yeah. He was a workout fanatic. You had to be shaped. Because challenge you come his way anytime. So he was always ready to square off with anyone in any could could steal truck in a matter of moments. Well, yeah, he he he was an opportunist, which is it that way he was a member of Teamsters, local twenty-five and. Yeah, longshoremen's union as well. So that's that's pretty good. So why did he and for those of you don't know what he was? He he he was the guy who the they called it the Irish gang or and it from nineteen sixty one till about the late sixties, and he had just about won the war and tell us what tell us what happened when they were just on the verge of winning the war. They were it was a war between Somerville. The winter hill gang, what became the winter hill, gang and this gang in the dominated Charlestown, which was obviously next door to Somerville. That that was the the the. The McLaughlin's, right. And the the two main leaders of the McLaughlin gang were were murdered Bernie and punchy Edwin mcglaughlin so looked like it was in buddies favor. The hughes. Brothers from Charlestown, they were they were the under the winter hill gang was the underdogs going getting they were by. Yeah. Yeah. But buddy turned the tide and it was in his favor and the the used brothers actually called looking for a truce, and buddy considered it for a little bit. But he talked to his mentor. Joe McDonald him Joe said you really trust. Those guys buddy said, no, I don't. And somebody said, no truce and it later on came back to to bite them. Steve Hughes Cottam coming out of the three eighteen club in some of on Halloween night Broadway. Yeah. Nineteen sixty five. Yeah. Shot him from the abandoned capitol theater.

Rico later that up dead, you know, in awful one twenty eighth. He he's got a picture in there of him fight. He's a fighter he fought the job the Nucci treasurer. Yes. So so buddy. If I mean buddy had lived he he would have been Whitey Bulger. Wasn't he well, he wouldn't have been Whitey, buddy? I mean, he would have been the bought he would have been the boss. Yeah. He was us building an empire. A lot of the other gangs throat boss wanted to be affiliated with buddy. And he was turning him down because he didn't wanna get overwhelmed. So here's a nine nine one ninety. I guess she lives in North Carolina. Now, I was born and raised in Somerville left the city in eighty three. What would I what I would say about the gangsters from back in the sixties and seventies. You could walk the streets at two in the morning, and they wouldn't bother you unlike today, right? Yeah. The bad guys in some of they will Leary a buddy McLean. You didn't you didn't wanna cross him? He definitely had a dockside. Yeah. I remember even in the seventies. You know, you go into a bar, and they would say people would be talking about buddy that say, you know, that's the chair, buddy. But that chair was reserved for by that still was reserved for buddy. Because he he would hang out in these some of these places at all times with him. It was a matter respect, you didn't say something you didn't look at them. You didn't get in his way, especially if he was drinking, and then it could be a hassle. But most of all he was just a gentleman. He give you the shirt off his back. Yeah. And he was it was pretty popular even the if if he if he liked you. He took care you, including the cops. Yeah. Absolutely. The cops were they wanted to be associated with. He had a lot of friends not just in some of to state police, and we know, of course, the FBI were fans of buddy McLean. I want to ask you about that we talked a little bit about that. The last time you went here, by the way, if you want to call it, you any questions or you're you're interested in this or your member idiot. These these old days in Somerville.

You know, what it was is that Paul Rico was investigating the McLaughlin brothers and hated them despise them. But I guess they bugged them gloss and hang out and listened in punchy was talking some pretty nasty stuff about Rico, and took it very personal. Yeah. There was a picture. I the the word is the the there was a picture in the record. The, you know, the the old to Hearst hab Loyd that that morning and Rica was down getting an award in Washington with Tolson and J Edgar Hoover and at so they. Picked up punchy talking to somebody news. He was reading the paper. He said, look those guys they're all you know, what they're doing down there and well Rico really took it personally because heated let me put it this way. I don't I don't want to say anything that could be misconstrued here. But he didn't swing the same way. That j gay Edgar and CLYDE Tolson swung. Let's put it that way. And then that's that's supposedly, you know, what he swore. He would kill him. All right, right. Yeah. And that lit a fire under Rico. So he became friends with buddy McLean. Feeding him information. The enemy of my enemy is my friend. Exactly. He was kind of rooting for buddy to take over the Charleston area. Yeah, he set up one of one of the one of one of Whitey Bulger's. Former Bank Robin partners dermal about this guy. Running Darby had just gotten outta. They all these guys had been in the Bank, Robin gang had been in prison for like eight or nine years for Robin all these banks in Rhode Island, the Indiana, and they were getting out. So. He gets out and the mcglaughlin dispatched Germany to go up to winter hill and kill buddy in exchange. Jeremy was gonna get this girl of his dreams. So Dermott shows up at the capitol. I think is still alive, by the way, Georgie. Yeah. He's still alive Georgia. But I mean, the the girl. Oh dottie. Yeah. I don't know. I think she is. Yes. Well during the shard. Yeah. He comes into the capital by any shoots, again, the back the head blonde type thing, and it was buddy McLean. He ran for his life reported back to the McLaughlin's. It's really sometimes it's it's really a downside. Evan blonde hair. You know, you get job. Our Bozell was looking for a guy with blond hair that told to be could get on a on a ride one time. They just went in. They just beat the crap out of the first guy. They saw what blonde hair, you know. It's better to just have black Brown hair. You know, you fit in or. Okay. So go ahead. So mcglaughlin found out that Jeremy shot the wrong guy game Celli Robinson who was just a friend of buddies. And they turn a loose and said, we can't use you. So Germany goes and calls Paul Rico asking for some help, you know, some protection Rico, intern says, okay, meet me at such and such a street in Belmont where he lived was Belmont wanted to write.
