"Promo code g. o. k. All right he is the president of the security studies group altham of winning the second civil war without firing a shot former special forces operated. Jim hansen and i think i have any of your buddies reached out to you. Who are at brag. Who were at brag. Wh what is the the sense of people who bled and ford for that piece of benighted real estate it's sadness honestly savage. It's sadness and embarrassment and that's what really hurts is it's not the people who are boots on the ground. Busting their butts putting their lives on the line losing friends and doing everything possible to accomplish a mission that the leadership was not willing to let them do and in at some level was actually probably impossible. You were never going to make a national army out of a collection of tribes and afghanistan that hate each other more than they will ever love. A mythical nation called afghanistan. So they're they're sad their embarrassed and and at this point they worry about the future of our military. Because how you're going to get people to join. This is how you treat them if this is what you do. Yeah his look. Let me run this posture as a former upright. I told the guys at brag for for years you've actually worn worn the uniform and the beret. So this is what. I advise the white house when i was in in the trump administration. I said the only reason afghanistan matters isn't because of hospitals or schools or ring roads around kabul. the soviets couldn't even build in matters because that territory was used to affect nine eleven. The only reason it matters so all we need is a small footprint of intel and operators to make sure the bad guys like acor. Isis are wacked when they are identified nothing else no nation building. That was my suggestion. That's what the president was really set to do. What what is your take on on the right approach to afghanistan. You know. I think biden deserves all the blame in disgrace for the shameful and incompetent way. This was handled. But let's go back to george w bush and let's look at the fact that we were absolutely right to go in and topple. The taliban are they allowed that that you know country to be used to attack the united states on nine eleven that needed to be taken care of but once we toppled them which was less than a month later. Why did we stay. Because he listened to rumsfeld. And cheney and colin powell talking about if you broke it you bought it no. We couldn't build a nation. We should have knocked him off and then carpet bombed the entire country with leaflets. That said we will bomb this place flat if you do it again. Then we'll do another run and make the rubble bounce. Stop hassling united states. He understands the application of force. Yes indeed that is the message that hooked should have been sent instead of the neo cons. The people who believed afghanistan lovely a future. switzerland weaken invest two and a half trillion dollars weaken. Lose two thousand lives twenty thousand wounded and get nothing to have. It all collapsed under a democrat president. Follow this man at jim hansen. Dc get his book.

Rain balls are visions, but only illusions on rainbow does have nothing to hide. You know the moment I heard Rainbow connection. I knew that it was special. And I knew that it had a message. And you don't have to be a frog to get that message. I mean, it doesn't matter where you are on the food chain. You know, we all have our dreams so they will find the rainbow. Next on the lovers, the dreamers on me, e think In many ways, it's the essence of Kermit, which is some sweet part of Jim Hansen. Soul that lead us through this song. It just feels like buying a ticket to the power of your imagination and your willingness to go along on the ride and see what wonderful things happen. The Rainbow connection had this yearning about it, trying to reach for something maybe more than we were capable of doing until we realized we could do it. Rainbow connection is the one song that really speaks to that feeling of yearning, you know, to follow your dream to make a difference in the world and to never give up no matter what. It's kind of our anthem. They will find it a rainbow on China lover but three murders.

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.
"jim hansen" Discussed on Science Friday
"I did. I did. I met him once at a conference. I think you know, the movie really does justices character in a way I liked the movie quite a bit. It's a it's a flawed movie. But it's really great movie. I really think this is a movie that captures the other side of the right stuff. So to speak, the engineering technical backgrounds and the kind of commitment these guys needed to have beyond just fighter junks. And and that kind of internal narrative internal kind of story in this movie about what it took to be an astronaut, I think really is communicated really effectively was he has reserved as you as you knew him. Well, I didn't I don't think I knew that will. But from what I understand he was very reserved, but he was not I think as perhaps dour is portrayed in the movie yet a sense of humor. He was a funny guy. But I do think he had a lot of struggles in his life and his biographer Jim Hansen has talked about, you know, there were some serious problems struggles in his family. Life and also with his colleagues and astronaut office. So I think it's a bit of both. He was I think he was he was a bit perhaps reticent, but but I think he was also capable of just being kind of chilling out. You didn't get that impression. Too much in the movie not so much in the movie, but I think the movie was focused on those aspects of his career in life required concentration diligence. Yeah. In is your urine. You're an engineer. Did you feel like that was a fair portrayal of any engineer? I think engineers have a whole variety of personality. So I think you saw a few different personalities moving. If you look across a lot of movies you'd see that. There's fun engineers very serious ones. There's ones that are super outgoing to it's certainly a fair portrayal because pretty much every personality type exists in engineering and one thing that struck me about this film was how jarring and difficult hall the scenes of spaceflight were there. You had Neil cramp launches were teeth rattling, and it was just disorienting anytime. We saw people flying. Is that realistic to you? I think there was a lot of realistic aspects that, you know, people assume you have this fun floating feeling, but especially in the Jimmy capsules the mercury there wasn't a lot of room that you were really crammed in there the cockpit right interface control panel. So I think that was very accurate portrayal all the switches engages or just right there. So that and then of course, the rocket ride. Uphill can be very bumpy. So that was certainly true. That's go to the phones Andrew in Sarasota, Florida. Welcome to science Friday. Enjoy your there. Hi, sandy. Disconnected there for a moment. Yeah. I was saying. Just program. We hear a lot about mercury. And we hear a lot about the Apollo. But I feel like the gym program is under surf the first time man stepped out into the void and Americans that spacewalks. I think that's story worth telling thanks for that call, you know, a lot of people don't realize know in that scene in the movie where he control the orbiting the rotation and he had the right stuff to pull out of that. That's well, he got the first seed to go landing on the moon. That's definitely one of the factors that kind of made it much more visible in the office there. I mean, there are other candidates for the job. But for sure the Gemini eight experience was a really key point. It was dangerous mission. And I was just looking at all life magazines from that month, and it was widely reported at the time as kind of really kind of an amazing exciting moment in the space race, a kind of successful failure in that sense. But a fantastic moment. Captured really nicely in the movie as the one person in the room who remembers that real in real time. I can say that it was very very signing. The big emotional punch of the story was an Neal's grief over the death of his daughter when she was just two years old. And then the loss of fellow astronauts and lead up to Apollo eleven Apollo one, whatever. Anything human loss shaped history as as a plate out..
"jim hansen" Discussed on Happy Sad Confused
"Never even knew he had a daughter, and so it was just kind of not talked about, and and Jim Hansen made a point of really talking about it, you know, and and so things like that, I think just, I guess, paved sort of pave the way and kind of dictated, I guess, what the approach for me and Ryan and everyone in the movie could be of leaning into all the things that normally would be tucked under the rug. Both the mundane things sort of day by day cleaning the pool, taking out the trash things, but also the the darker stuff the, you know, actually confronting death head on and the amount of loss endanger and and and kind of risk that the program kind of in the. Involved and what that means to families. Families being torn apart by this. You know what happens after you get the team phone call a friend of yours, just died. In how many when you go back into your house, how many, how many phone calls of that nature and human being take? Yeah. And. That felt like that was the medically to something that I hadn't seen before and just kind of helped dictate. Okay. If that's really the Matic stuff that feels kind of knew that we can delve into then that dictates the the style that dictates kind of how we shoot it. And we're gonna shoot it with muck on the lens, and we're gonna shoot it without a tripod. It's gonna be camera on the shoulder and sixteen millimeter, and it's going to feel rough and messy and scary and dark and intense in visceral violent and physical and sweaty. And smelly, I want the audience to smell these capsules if they could. I would have used smell-a-vision if I could have. Maybe there's still a possibility for smell-a-vision release, surprising, look. Oscar season. You gotta bring out all the bells and whistles. I don't know how how well that one would go, but I'd like to go a little little broader speaking of Oscar season. Are you itching at this point to like, make a movie with zero expectations for awards? I mean, you've you've now into this bizarre rarified air where thankfully, the last two of your films have just like been so successful with commercially but also critically in an award show. So it heroically something like this comes with those expectations. Does that wear on you as a human being in filmmaker? Is there? Is there. Weird thing where you're you're, you're ultimately out of your control, but you're thankful as a filmmaker to,.

"So I spent a lot of time watching reading about them, writing scripts, watching some more rewatching just trying to learn, and they were just so many experiences that I had and I still have to this day watching films and just getting my mind blown, you know, and it's such a wonderful experience from live for that experience and movie watcher. So I, I. As movie maker, I just want to try to do my best to provide an experience like that for the viewers. And obviously the last time that we had that from you was was lowland, which actually it's feel that long ago about two years ago, I imagine probably longer since you are making it, but can you tell me a bit about when did I man come to you? This is your first of those three films. You're not credited as a writer on what shape was it in when you enter the project? Well, it was. It was actually right before I started shooting LaLa land. I had finished whiplash. LaLa land was kind of slowly getting up and running, but wasn't you know, up and running yet. And I met these two per producers in LA who what Godfrey and Marty Bowen. Three producers is a Klausner and they they had. They had a few projects that they serve. You know, we're asking me about they had liked whiplash and kind of asking me what I was interested in. I wasn't really sure. Other than I had my head was, oh, was completely LaLa land. At that point. I didn't really know what beyond a romantic musical. I would be interested in and they gave me this book by Jim Hansen called, I man this biography of Neil Armstrong and I, you know, I hadn't been a big space ski growing up or anything like that, but I just became riveted by just reading this story of of an event that I thought I knew, but kind of realized I didn't an individual. I thought I knew, but realized I didn't just the whole story behind the story became fascinated in the main sort of mmediately I, I wanted to do it, but I also knew that I needed help. I needed someone to adapt this book who could dive into the research. You could do a lot of the heavy lifting, especially while I was shooting LaLa land. So I, I met Josh Ingham and credible writer. This was before he wrote, well, he'd written but headshot spotlight for what she later when the Oscar. So I was very lucky to get him before before that happened. Otherwise, you probably couldn't have afforded him, and, but Josh just went to town with the research and started going to Houston. Making trips to visit the families and the astronauts themselves. While I was shooting lowlands that by the time I was finished with level and there was a draft of the script and we started working together and brought Ryan on board, and it just became this kind of a thing right away. I mean the the approach that you take in in this story, it's it's not the science. It's not the that site of kind of how do you get to them, and there is an element of that, but it's it's on Neelam stories, nealon's story. Will you able to help kind of shape the script in that direction than if you're on stage on board kind of early stage before the the screenplay was fully written? Yeah. I mean, I I sort of after looking at the book and to some of some title materials. I sort of figured out what my take on the story would be, you know, the Saudi of doing about seven or eight year span of Neal's life and just kind of beginning when he joins NASA. And then when he lands on the moon and looking at it as kind of a mission movie from his perspective to try to sort of figure out in the storytelling. How show how. In an almost procedural way, how this was accomplished. This insane endeavor with -ccomplish. So Josh kind of took that basic idea, those basic parameters ran with it, and and then, yeah, it was a very collaborative process. We sort of worked together law in the script and then Ryan as well worked a lot with with Josh myself on the script and and and did a lot of research on his own and with us..

"There was one thing you could do that could really help it and solve it, and we did it in this is such a more amorphous issue that requires so many different types of solutions. And it seemed like that was part of the big issue about why it couldn't get over. The finish line is because there wasn't one specific thing. That they could ask people to do right in contrast that with the ozone hole in the use of the term whole. As you describe evolved over time, I think someone mentioned it in a press conference, journalists ran with it, and that became a really powerful image. And then when you had these models showing the big purple hole in the ozone layer, even though it wasn't technically a whole, it seemed like this massive urgent existential threat that was very different from something like climate change as Catherine described. Yeah, it's hard to generalize about the entire decade because the strategies evolved over that period, but but certainly the ozone hole crisis, the public outcry. Was a catalytic moment in the conversation about global warming because it offered for the first time a viable solution, which was a global environmental treaty to reduce emissions of, you know, CFC's in the case of of ozone. But immediately the talk turned within the global warming community to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. And but even at the early the beginning of the decade, I mean, Rafe Pomerance and others are talking about the need for increased investment in renewable energy, the the need to move away from coal Gordon. McDonald's talking about that in nineteen seventy nine in earlier and the implementation of a carbon tax is also part of the conversation as a way of of health into celebrate that process in starting in the late seventies. So, you know, really, I mean, I would go further and say basic. Every every solution that that is now proposed today in twenty eighteen was being proposed in nineteen eighty, and which includes decarbonisation includes sucking carbon out of the atmosphere. Geo engineering, nuclear energy, ramping up nuclear energy every the whole suite of things that we're still talking about. Today's was all on the table then. But yeah, the significant turning point was the idea, global binding global treaty to reduce emissions and and once that once once that was much protocol was signed even people at the highest level, the regular administration were saying that global warming carbon dioxide treaty was next put to get to that point. The this road show, so to speak, really had to touch on powerful stories. It had to have heroes. It had to have villains ahead to find a way to make climate change real for people. And you know, Pomeranz tried that in many ways. And then ultimately Al Gore and Jim Hansen realized the same thing. You know, historically, you'd had scientists who are just terrible at describing the threats. And and then in some of these reports, when they identified the threats, when they were talking to reporters and press conferences or on Capitol Hill, they would be very careful about, you know, talking about the threat of climate change when, in fact, in reports they talked about, you know, pretty imminent, multidex aid threats. So there's this really important element to the history that you outlined in the piece, which is the the formation of stories, though the formation of this new kind of science. Communication where scientists like Jim Hansen were a lot more bold in the way they talk about the threats of climate change. And of course, in the thirty years, since his famous nineteen Eighty-eight hearing Jim Hansen has written books has become a major advocate for nuclear and renewable energy has basically stood up on the rooftops and shouted as loud as we can that we are in, you know, the, the gravest crisis that you can imagine. And other climate scientists have followed people like Huddy Heidi Cullen, and you know, Jacqueline Gill and Kevin Trenberth and Michael man, and there's, there's a ton of climate scientists out there who have Jason box is another interesting one who basically said, okay, the scientists and enough, it's not enough that we can explain this stuff through data. We have to talk about we to tell stories and maybe even make policy prescriptions in some cases. So the talk about the origins of that movement. Yeah. I mean that was going. On throughout the eighties, the none of that is is really new. You know, you have James Hansen in nineteen eighty one in a major science paper that was received coverage on the front page of the of the near times..

"And he kept saying wherein in grave danger and it was chilling. But he's been saying that since nineteen seventy five. So what do you do with that? I, that's the thing. I don't think we've we haven't examined like, what? What does that do to us to be confronted with this knowledge? And I think it's a lot easier to talk about technology to talk about the politics talk about industry and all that important. But I also think there's this, this giant sort of beating heart in the middle that we ignore to them, feel guilt. Not really. They feel. I mean, these are the people who tried the industry. People I speak to are unrepentant about it. They have their own sort of motion defenses about it, some Johnson, and you still think Johnson, you told me I was going to be fine. I worry about, you know, a few weeks ago, so it's like your, hey, I hope you're and. But you know, I think there's some are more bitter. Some are angry. You know that their advice wasn't listened to that people in act when they could have that pettiness got in the way or lack of willpower, you know. And we'll just wonder also minutes like a little bit of experiences with this. Like I knew some people who are working on the Clinton campaign and they were pretty connected to the responsibility that they had, you know, and they worked as hard as I've ever seen anyone work. They really felt like like the world is in their hand to of the world in their hands and that they lost like the fucking blew it and Arwen had these drinks with people in the wake of that election, there were, it was a a grief unlike I've ever experienced. But did they feel guilt? Yes, tremendous. Like that's what I mean, like this mix of they blew guilt and anger and grief. Yes, it was. Personal inmate. It was there. They asked Matz, billionaire wondered reading the story, whether there's any part of that mean. These people dedicated allies to it, and it consumed them and consumed their families sometimes and they gave everything but, but the lost. I think to commit to it to this issue with olive yourself as these basically, all these people did. You can't. Succumb to defeatism. It's like not in your DNA. So they still are in the fight into unlike the election where it's continuing and it's not technically impossible to stop it. In fact, there's very, you know, there's a strong economic argument. There's technological argument, Jim Hansen lays it all out. He has a plan that starts in twenty twenty one, which is not coincidentally the year after Trump I term ends and it's a gradual plan. An ambitious plan involves a carbon tax, a lot of nuclear energy and some other controversial things. But if enacted it will benefit the economy and it will arrest more minute to one and a half degree celsius, and that's all good. But I, I also, I feel like it's not sufficient. You need a kind of larger immoral purpose to get the support of an entire. You know, democracy, basically behind it and. That was part of the problem. I mean, I guess to go back briefly to the issue in the in the eighties, it said there was all this excitement and all the support. And yet it only took the opposition of the president's chief of staff to crumple at all. So that makes you question well, how deep was the support after all? We certainly haven't come closer than that, but you know it revealed it to be on certain level, somewhat flimsy, and so there's some failure in that that it wasn't. They weren't able to build build it more strongly. It does feel like another like paradox of this thing is that you both need to reckon with. Sort of the worst case scenario and it also action relies on extreme optimism like reading your story, it's a bummer. It's a real Downer. And yet the answer at the end is essentially like I was surprised by the level of optimism at the end or sort of hope that the epilogue of your piece. Does that feel like a fair characterization of where you landed. I think you're entitled to that way. It's not how I necessarily would read it..
