"Arabia's national oil company Saudi Aramco, it's called we told you about it because they were going to go to the capital markets sell off some bonds and had opened their books at least partway to see whether investors wanted in. And who did they interest in Ramco bonds came in such a stampede? Then investors were okay. Taking a really really small return. A yield in bond market the interest bonds pay in return for letting the company us investors money as marketplace's Scott Tong reports, despite the human rights controversies surrounding shouting kingdom the markets. They don't seem so worried there's a big range of bonds available to investors. The more risk. They take the more interest or yield. They get on one end. There are junk bond says Georgetown, finance professor Jim angel companies on the edge. Eddie. Money back. But in the meantime, if they did pay off you get a huge return Saudi Aramco's at the other extreme a giant profit machine backed by a country, it offered low-yield it's safe as safe as the kingdom of Saudi Arabia's bonds and investors couldn't get enough. Aramco set a goal of borrowing ten billion dollars as yesterday the orderbook was sixty billion. I just saw report earlier today that it was at hundred billion soon. Other words, plenty of investors who are willing to lend a ram camonte on the same terms as they went money to the Saudi government. That's a great signal for Saudi Arabia, which owns Aramco it wants to raise money to invest in new sectors. Besides oil and to convince the rest of the world that it's companies are well run says Stephen copay at Princeton energy advisors. You wanna modern economy? And if you're particularly looking to move past oil-based economy in Saudi Arabia, you slowly have to be edging towards international standards of governance. This has been the kingdom's plan for a while. But it was thrown in. Into serious doubt. Last fall by the murder of journalist, Jamal kashogi, energy scholar. Valerie Marcel at Chatham house. British think-tank government was to to track twin investment and now they're back as good graces of the world. They're no longer the pri- state. Today's big time bond sale is rekindling expectations that Saudi Aramco might go public and let investors by company stock to I'm Scott Tong for marketplace. It will surely not have escaped your attention that April the fifteenth.

"I just had a regarding the runoff of thinking about all of the but visually seeing it's much flooding, and then it was mentioned earlier that in the tributary streams as well. And so I wonder what what you think the potential impacts might be from this specific event and it's pollution runoff. Also may be hazardous waste sites and things like that on my no that comes up sometimes in the flood discussion. But then looking forward to like if it's gonna happen in the heat of the fertilizer application curious what what are the impacts now from and then I'll looking forward on runoff. Brett, thank you for your call Jim angel. So birth got two questions there. The first of all, you know, is there concern about what a pollute pollutants that could be in the run off of from. Come from this from this flood here. So it's always an issue with floodwaters is that it's not just water. You can have a toxic chemicals get in there, you know, like pesticides. Also, you typically get a lot of sewer sewage in there as well. Because at overwhelmed septic systems and and municipal treatment plant since I it's just a very bad case of water. That's that then covered over the land and also moving downstream, so it's very problematic in that regard. And that's just something that pretty much happens with every every flood that we have. And so if there's going to be more flooding in the future, I mean Brett's phone line was a little hard to hear. But I think he was also asking about you know, is this more encouragement or motivation to change farming practices or move towards more best practices. So that when we have these flooding events. They're just fewer pollutants in the. Water. Yeah. And I think one of the ones I think everybody can agree on is the the risk of losing nutrients off the soil, so like nitrogen fertilizers and fortunately, very mobile in the soil once you put in there. So it it can both flush out through the soils. Get washed off the top and nobody likes that. Because the farmer loses money because they've lost their fertilizer, and then people downstream don't like him because they have to treat for that. And so I think efforts underway to hold those nutrients in place like with those vegetative strips. We've mentioned earlier will really help out and and saw these kind of profits. So you know, some of these things are are very solvable. It's just that we have to do it on much larger scale than what we're used to. Let's see if we can get one more call in here. Jennifer is calling from their qua-. Wisconsin Jennifer, you're on the air. All right. Thanks for taking my call. I wanted to tell you about a creative projects that we're working on here in Ruka with Thomson on creating community resilience post-flood.

Yes in Jim says, you know, if you're in the red zone. What you have to try to figure out right now when the markets are really volatile is this is a temporary blip. Or if this is signaling a-coming drop in the stock market. Of course, knowing that is not possible. So you just have to guess, I'm not a very good soothsayer or astrologer. So I would say consulting people who swatted the pigeons and look at the entrails for a better forecast. Don't buy stocks during mercury retrograde. And that is the point right?

Switching to sorghum which is more drought, tolerant so more profitable. Jim angel is the Illinois state climatologist and lead author of the chapter on the mid west in the national climate change study the frequency and intensity is a heat waves in the summers are expected increased by mid century. And I have to keep reminding myself that might say mid-century that's not that far off the report predicts that heat and poor air quality will take a toll on livestock and rising humidity will make it harder to grow crops. So yields will be reduced, but that's very hard for corn farmer. Blake Hearst to believe we've had six years in a row. Above trend Corniel's in the mid west. That's never happened before Hirst lives about one hundred miles east of Tessie. He says his reaction to climate change is more measured. He wonders if lowering carbon emissions is worth harming the economy. In addition to growing corn, Hearst grows. Soybeans and is president of the Missouri farm bureau like most farmers. He says, there's always bad weather years. But farmers manage in part because technology has improved seed which also means it costs a lot more than when he started farming in nineteen seventy eight for an eighty thousand seat bag of of corn, which is like two and a half acres worth of planning. We're paying three hundred and forty two dollars. 'cause I just got the Bill, and that's a heck of a lot more than I was paying nine hundred seventy eight that's one place where Hurst and the report agree production costs will be the most expensive piece for farmers in the future pricey seeds drainage systems for the wet springs and irrigation for the dry summers. The study's author Jim angel says he's talked to farmers for years. And there's a disconnect on the issue. What's interesting to me? Is that some people? Yeah. The idea of climate change is is off putting but then they will turn around and talk about weather trends, or have weather patterns have changed on their farm. What farmers fear? Most angel says is what the solutions might be say more regulations or more taxes, but no matter their political stripe. Farmers like Don Tuskegee just want to keep the farm in the family.

You can look there is and see this is a really good for anything McGrath from cows. But this last summer the grass only grew to about half of what it normally does. Because. Of drought. That means test ski had a hard time. Feeding his cattle. He's afraid the increasingly hot dry weather will turn this past year into buffalo grass a lower yielding and less nutritious feed the grows out on the high plains to the west beautiful bluestar. That becomes. The buffalo grass God, western Kansas. Economic driver dead says he sees climate change on his farm and has worked on the issue as president of the Kansas farmers union. He worries about what's been reported for years that the corn belt is moving northeast because of hotter weather. He gave up growing corn two years ago. Switching to sorghum which is more drought, tolerant so more profitable. Jim angel is the Illinois state climatologist and lead author of the chapter on the mid west in the national climate change study the frequency intensity a heat waves in the summers are expected to increase by mid century. After keep reminding myself that let's say mid-century that's not that far off the report predicts that heat and poor air quality will take a toll on livestock and rising humidity will make it harder to grow crops. So yields will be reduced, but that's very hard for corn farmer. Blake Hearst to believe we've had six years in a row. Above trend corneal in the mid west. That's never happened before Hirst lives about one hundred miles east of Tessie. He says his reaction to climate change is more measured. He wonders if lowering carbon emissions is worth harming the economy. In addition to growing corn, Hearst grows. Soybeans and is president of the Missouri farm bureau like most farmers. He says, there's always bad weather years. But farmers manage in part because technology has improved seed which also means it costs a lot more that when he started farming in nineteen seventy eight for an eighty thousand seat bag of of corn, which is like two and a half acres worth appointing band three hundred and forty two dollars. 'cause I just got the Bill, and that's a heck of a lot more than I was paying nine hundred seventy eight for hybrid seed, that's one place where Hurst and the report agree production. Costs will be the most expensive piece for farmers in the future pricey seeds drainage systems for the wet springs and irrigation for the dry summers. The study's author Jim angel says he's talked to farmers for years. And there's a disconnect on the issue. What's interesting to me is that some.

"Assessment commissioned by congress and compiled by three hundred scientists from thirteen federal agencies issued a dire warning to mid west farmers telling them, it's not the coast, but American agriculture that will bear the brunt of rising temperatures heavy rainfall and more extreme weather patterns, Jim angel is Illinois state climatologist and was the lead author on the report chapter on the mid west had Jim thanks for having me. So gloomy gloomy gloomy report. Go a little deeper. Yes. We know. There are going to be rising temperatures heavier rainfall more extreme weather, but tell us more about how that affects farmers in the mid west in particular. That's right. If you look at the impacts on the mid west from climate change right now what we see primarily the impacts of. More rainfall more heavy rainfall event, so gives us trouble, for example, with springtime planning. If it's too wet you can't plant, or if if we did plan to flooded out, and you have to replant. So there's cost involved with that. And also we've and that doesn't take drought off the table. So even though we're getting more rainfall, we also have had a lot of short term or what we call a flash droughts in the summertime that can be a big problem. We saw that especially Missouri this year. So I would say the biggest concern probably other concern is the impacts of temperature in some ways. It's the off season temperatures that are bothering them in that it when you have the wintertime if it doesn't get cold enough. A lot of pests can actually survive the winter underground it's like come out in spring, and they're ready to go. So can also impact the prevalence of pest, and and other pathogens just hold up there for second because we have been hearing farmers speak on this. And some of them are very much as you say witnessing what? They say what they see is climate change. Others are seeing it as part of a process as you said it's been going on. So for instance, Blake Hearst, who's president of the Missouri farm bureau said when the report come out that it was disturbing. But farmers will adapt as they always have. And that doesn't matter if the US Trist respond to climate change because there are countries India and China that are trying to aspire to western living standards. And we know this, you know, getting their first cars, for instance, that aren't going to do that. So it really it doesn't really matter. What are you hearing from farmers that you speak to know? It does run the spectrum so far very in tune to that and some are not so much. And you know, I mean farmers like everybody else they've been there. Long term some short term. We have some in the mid west that are multi generational. So they've experienced the growing seasons since the turn of the twentieth century or even earlier. So depending on where you are. It can be a big difference. I would say various it's probably more pronounced than other areas too. So that also comes into play. So we talked to a farmer Iowa. They might have a different story than someone from Indiana, for example. Well, but the biggest headline that's been coming out of this is if nothing is done about climate change by twenty fifty midwest farmers could see their productivity decrease to a level not seen since the nineteen eighties. This is from a paper out of champagne, Illinois, the news gazette. What does that mean to farmers the nineteen eighties? Yes. Nineteen definitely lower production. During that time. We also had some issues with. Droughts. The big drought of nineteen Eighty-eight was in there. And also we had the big flood of nineteen Ninety-three, which is also very detrimental to yields as well. So being too wet or dry as a problem..
