The Importance of Remembering the Names

"There practices in the oil industry that are indefensible that you struggle a lot of times to defend I'm thinking about lobbyists something about other things climate change deniers like how do you deal with those personalities in your industry Well the first thing I would say francine is that BP was actually the first oil and gas company to my knowledge that in the late 90s and 1998 acknowledged that there was a link between human activity and climate change And that was John Brown and a speech in Stanford in 1998 and I had the privilege of working with John in the 2000s when he was chief executive So that's the first thing I think we're very much on record as not being a climate denier The second thing I would say is when you talk about lobbying we produce a report now I think it's every two years And what we do is we work with trade associations some of whom who lobby and we say we're going to be very transparent with you If we disagree with you and if we disagree with you consistency we will leave these three associations And I think we've left two if not three organizations already Then there is a group in the middle where we feel we have some misalignment with And we will be transparent on that And then there are those that we are aligned with So the whole thing here is to be transparent is to be upfront is to there is no hiding today as you know So we have to be transparent We want to be transparent and we want to show people here's what our positions are So when will you no longer have fossil fuel and actually I mean do you have to rebrand BP British petroleum do you have to be called something else Well I happen to think BP is a fantastic brand and I know lots of people don't maybe but I certainly do and there's a lot of people that we work with in countries all around the world that have sort of an enormous warmth towards the brand of BP and we serve over 10 million customers a day We're going to bring that up to 20 million customers very very soon We don't need to rebrand BP So you're not going to be called British energies We need to deliver We need to deliver on the plans that we laid out That's what we've got to do Year one we set direction Two we restructured Now it's about one thing One thing only delivery And we can show those people who are skeptical about whether this is all greenwashing And I can assure you if you look at what we've done in the last two years you wouldn't call this greenwashing We didn't do the biggest restructuring in our history just for greenwashing That was a very painful experience So there's an exciting new world of EVs What's your biggest concern about this What keeps you up at night when looking at EVs is it the charging where you charge how you charge how you power them Well our business is in EV charging And I'm super excited about the EV charging business So if you think about it we have a physical network of gas stations today 550 million people in the world live within 20 minutes of a BP petrol station or a BP gas station So we've this enormous asset called our physical infrastructure We're going to change that over time to ultra fast charging Today every week in the fourth quarter we're adding a 115 charge points per week We sold four and a half times more power through those chargers in 2021 than we did in 2020 It's an enormous opportunity for a company like ours It is all about fast charging That's where we're focused 150 350 kW chargers People want to know there's going to be a place where they can get a charge and get a bit of fast Right That's true And you can get a cup of coffee and a marks and Spencer sandwich in the UK which is also very very important So I'm very excited about this space We're going to lean we're accelerating our ambition It used to be 70,000 charge points Now we're up to a 100,000 We're putting more capital into it Very exciting We're in Germany We're in China We're in the UK and we're just entering fleets in America We're in early 2022 and we're going through a huge I mean we're seeing actually a huge energy crisis And a lot of analysts say this is because politicians countries even companies didn't plan for the transition Well look there's a lot of reasons as with many things in life There are a lot of reasons why we have an energy crisis today Things from weather no hydro in Brazil no hydro in Norway maintenance How much of it is the transition I think what you will see is what we've learned today is that unless we plan properly to handle both demand as well as supply then we will have a problem because if we take supply down and don't do anything with demand there's only one response which is prices go up And what I'm worried about francine and a lot of people are worried about is that that will somehow be connected to the transition and it will turn people off the transition when in fact we need to transition to accelerate So what do we need now for the transition I know there's also products that we need in making these renewables and also making these EV chargers that were not taking out of the ground fast enough We need to understand that it is a transition It is not there I said a light switch We have to move from today's system to tomorrow system And we need to remind ourselves I think you've had Mark Carney on your show here We need to remind ourselves what Mark says We need to start every meeting and say what's our objective Our objective is to drive emissions down Our objective is not to defend an ideological position about I don't want hydrocarbons If we can move from coal to gas and that reduces emissions we should do that We should do that because it's one step on the journey If we can move from diesel to biodiesel we.

"Energy That's what society wants That's what society needs And I believe in my heart that a company like BP is actually one of the few companies in the world who can actually make that happen We can talk about the things that we're going to grow and over to coming years And I find it hugely exciting and energizing for our organization But that's what the world needs And you simply can't go against the grain of society You can't defy gravity And that's why we're making the change that we're making The young kids would have said well we need this but we maybe should have started 5 years

need to give society what it wants And for our company it's an enormous opportunity People think about the energy transition must be a threat to a company like BP I don't think like that I think it's an enormous opportunity We're going to go into EV charging We're going to go into biofuels We're going to go into hydrogen These are things that we can help solve and instead of thinking of it as a risk or a threat where you crouch down in a defensive position and you see darkness It's actually a massive opportunity for us But it's also tough You probably have the toughest job of any business It's a challenge But equally we have this mantra inside the company which says we have got to perform while we transform It sounds like a broken record for coming from me but we are performing while transforming And our job is to give shareholders a good return on their investment today But you are Which we are doing Why not the same time step by step day by day transition and transform this company to be the company of the future which can be How much tension is there I mean the more you keep shareholders happy And so the more you give back the more they maybe don't want you to

"john brown" Discussed on Patriots Beat
"I understand that it's easy to scapegoat miles Bryant. It's easy to pick on JC Jackson for not having a great game against Diggs and missing that tackle and the interception. It's easy to talk about how slow the Patriots linebackers were, how they couldn't collapse on the short RAS and they couldn't get to check downs down and they couldn't tackle. It's easy to say all that kind of stuff. Did the coaches put the players in a position to succeed on the field? And in my mind, too often in this game, the players were left out to dry. And there was no rhyme or reason whatsoever to stick in the coverage that they were playing when Brian able clearly had it all figured out, right? He clearly knew what was going to be cover one and he had the Mackenzie and he was running them across the field and the other thing I'll say quickly here before we wrap this up. The one benefit that the bill has had to Beasley and Davis being out in this game gave Davis. Isaiah McKenzie's been around. He's not a new player to their system, right? They don't necessarily use him as much at receiver when those guys are healthy, but he's somebody that has been around the block and has been around that team for a while now. So it wasn't like they were putting in some it wasn't like they were putting in Christian wilkerson, right? They knew he also just might be better than Cole Beasley. At this point, he's definitely a harder guy to match up against, right? Because of that speed. And you can run those overs. All right. It reminded me a little bit honestly quickly when the bills also had John Brown, right? Because I did and John Brown and she had two guys out there that were really good on the crossers. It was a problem. The Patriots couldn't cover it. All right, I want to end it. I want to circle back to the COVID stuff here for a second because I think it is important. I know where you were going with it, right, in terms of pausing the season. I think is where you were going with it. No, oh, no, no. No. Where are you going with then?

The kind of new york dylan community. Even though i stopped listening quite intensely. But i kinda got the advance word that he's going to be performing and you could get tickets to this show. That was untitled. But then that was the dylan show and Three hundred people standing room. Only elvis costello joined him on stage. this is nineteen ninety nine And you know he was not a few years after time out of mind.

CDC launches VaccineFinder tool to locate COVID-19 vaccine providers
"19 vaccine, But you can't find one help could be on the way. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has just launched an online search tool in partnership with Boston Children's Hospital. Help people identify which facilities have supplies of the vaccine. It's called vaccine finder dot org's. This initial launch is limited to certain providers in most states, NPR's Selena Simmons, Duffin has details. When you put in your zip code at vaccine, find her dot org's. You see an interactive map showing local pharmacies that get Cove in 19 vaccine doses from the federal government. You also see whether they have doses in stock. If you live in Alaska, Indiana, Iowa or Tennessee, you're in luck. Because in those states, the maps show more places administering Cove in 19 vaccines. Not just pharmacies, but private hospitals and clinics and public health sites, ideas to show vaccine providers that are open to the public. How to contact them how to book an appointment. And kind of show the daily inventory status of people are clearing where there's vaccine and where there isn't That's John Brownstein, the founder of Vaccine Finder and chief information officer at Boston Children's Hospital, he says. After this initial launch, more providers in more places are expected to join in in the coming days and weeks. That scene finder is actually not new. It began nine years ago. It all started after each one. Anyone where we want to figure out how to provide the population with the best possible insights and where vaccine was in their communities, and since then We have been building this platform usually showing people where to get the seasonal flu shot or travel vaccines, Bronstein says. In recent months, a team of about three dozen people has been working feverishly to launch this tool toe work for people looking for covert 19 vaccines. While navigating the fact that at this moment, vaccine supplies relatively low and eligibility is limited, both of which constrained how useful the tool is. In case the Kaiser Family Foundation says she wishes this tool had been around a few weeks ago. In the meantime, many states have created their own provider maps people can use, and that's added to this confusing patchwork. This idea has a lot of potential, but I think there's still some questions about what will it be like in practice. There are also concerns about how many providers will put their information on vaccine finder and whether the providers will really update their inventory every 24 hours.

Are on making sure that anybody who's looking for a vaccine knows where to find them. The supply of Corona virus vaccine doses is growing. The Biden administration says it's now sending out over 16 million doses a week and increase of more than 70% since inauguration. Assuming that trend continues, more shots will be available and more providers like clinics and even doctors. Offices will be able to begin distributing vaccine doses as well. So people can look forward to a time when Cove in 19 vaccine doses are abundant and everyone is eligible. And you might even be able to ask your smart speaker to find a clinic nearby with vaccine doses and stock and head over to get your shot. Selena Simmons Duffin

"I went to pick back up on a topic we tackled in part with Alex Barros. Oh, Microbiologist, USA Today columnist lived earlier in the program. And that is the adverse reactions to the cove in vaccines. ABC News reporting fact, Chuck Here we are with our fact checkers. And yes, I know what you're thinking, who checks the fact checkers. That's the appropriate question. No link between cover 19 vaccines and those who die after receiving them, And I'm not saying that's erroneous. I'm just saying these sorts of declarations leave me asking more questions or wanting more information as opposed to less Also, too. It's interesting to note here. The reporting on the fact checking, scientists warn isolated cases of adverse reactions, while tragic, do not mean the vaccines are to blame. True. This little contextual nugget on average of 8000 people die each day in the United States. Some of them may have just received a corona virus vaccine. We have to be very careful about cause al Itty said. Dr John Brown seen an epidemiologist at Boston Children's Hospital. They're going to be Spiritus relationships, especially as the vaccine is targeting elderly or those with chronic conditions just because these events happened in proximity to the vaccine. Does not mean the vaccine caused these events. Well, golly gee, isn't that interesting? Dr. Bronstein? Could you say the same thing about covert infection? We have to be very careful about causality there going to be spirits relationships, especially as the Infection is targeting the targeting elderly or those with chronic conditions. Just because these events happen in proximity, the infection and the death does not mean that the infection caused these events. Could you substitute infection for vaccine and make the same argument? Has any were the same people making the same arrogant about covert over the last year of no where they provided the same context of when you talk about case fatality rates, or just giving the wrong numbers of people who had died and were tagged as having died from Cove it and using anecdotal stories and context, free data points to engender fear for the purpose of advancing control. We have to be very careful about causality. Wow. And I'm not saying that this Bronstein guy was a problem. I don't It's the first I've read any of his pronouncements. But I'm just saying, generally speaking, how much flim flam Marie, have we heard from those cloaked in credentials as public health officials, medical doctors, not to mention, of course, when it gets translated by these dum dums. Sit on cable news channel desks and so forth. So you'll note the difference in how we tackle it on this show, as we did with Alex Barros. Oh, we can understand what the most likely outcome is not the worst case scenario and have that informed the way that we conduct our lives frustrating year. S O. This compilation of some of the Posts on social media, people just sharing their stories and again. This is not verified and I'm not trafficking in Definitive statements about what caused what But their questions are being raised when people have questions if they don't get answers that addressed their questions than You know they're likely to cling to This information or they're likely to go to form a misunderstanding. Mean so for and you know this. This is being talked about. So you need to talk about you need to address it, including with people are experts. That's his right hand. Alex Barros on the show. I'm not one, but I'm Have enough common sense to have conversations about this. So, for example, one person tweeted I work for a health service at work yesterday. Had four severe vaccine reactions to of these had serious chest pains and dizziness and other flu symptoms. Can't leave the bad one numbness and tingling and stroke symptoms. Three of the four were sent to the hospital. Oddly enough, none had Cove in 19 issues. This was all issues from the vaccine. And again, there's been talk about you get sore arm or you get a headache. You get some dizziness but unbalanced. That's the worst that's going to be for most people, and so it's worth the protection, particularly if you're older and have real susceptibility to serious illness from infection. It's what I'm talking about. It doesn't have to be mindless, happy talking. It doesn't have to be fatalism. It has to be, you know, informed consideration. Another. Person tweeted out. I received my first visor vaccination on the 23rd of December and the third of January was the start of my symptoms. Ear ache, headache, some facial numbness. On the Fourth of January, I was diagnosed Bell's palsy. Now on day nine of steroids now, just waiting, not just a waiting game on full recovery, okay? There have been reports that Larry King, including from his his son. Got the covert vaccine Charlie before he died. Does that make it causal? No, of course not. But it just raises the issue. Somebody else. I went to work today and ended up in the air. Thank God I work in a hospital. I'm positive this up SOS from the cove in 19 vaccine. My heartbeat was 2 39. I haven't felt right since I got the injection on Tuesday and a headache ever since I'm not getting the second shot. This was my experience that with the vaccine, I felt I should share it now you know again. Is the person disclosing underlying conditions. That perhaps exacerbated his reaction to the vaccine as we talked a little bit with Paris out. I mean, this isn't this is meant to say, Let's take the mysticism out of it..

Behold, and he's not perfect. He'll never be. We've seen him have blow up games and the cheese played down to the level of their competition. Some, But you know, this group of guys rises to the occasion and so I'm excited to see them. On that Super Bowl stage again, a 55 to 1 to 4 to 27855 to 1 to 4 CBS. Of course, they won this a F C championship at the expense of the Buffalo Bills. We heard from Josh Allen last hour, and he's using words like grow and learn where that's not what we're hearing for the Packers, so a completely different Attitude following the loss, and that's understandable. The expectations weren't quite as high for the bills this year. But moving forward they will be and so with Josh Allen having a huge season a career year for him and other pieces around him, like Stefan digs like John Brown like Cole Beasley. They do need to address their run game. But man, they're becoming a free agent destination as well. And Cole Beasley was part of that the exit interview process on Monday and he kind of lays it out there. For 2021. We got a lot of the right guys in the locker room. T o do what we need to do. We came up short, but other than myself, For the most part, it's very young group. So my feeling and learning with each other. No, We took a step last season. Then we took another step this year, so There's only 11 more place to go, so that's the goal. Super Bowl is what is referring to in case you didn't quite catch that he's like Everybody else is young. I'm really the only exception. That's great Cole Beasley this season 82 catches 967 yards, four touchdowns. He went over the 1000 yard mark. If you include his playoff stats in three postseason games, another 14 catches 145 yards, so really productive season for him, But Believe it or not, he was playing with a fairly serious injury. I broke my fibula, but it's nothing that needs to be surgically repaired. You broke your fibula. How did you manage? That was it is not a It's not a full brake, but they had just something. I mean, it was Was bad. The first game I played, but after that, you know it's you take you take a few meds and suck it out. You take a few meds and suck it up Professional athletes. They are a special breed. Are they not take a few meds and suck it up? So go Beasley stunning people on Monday in You hear the reporter react. You played a game with a broken fibula. I wasn't that bad. It wasn't a full brake. What Whatever. I mean, maybe it's not like Philip Rivers playing Ah NFC Championship with a tornado cl.

Jesse is listening in Myrtle Beach. Welcome to after hours. How are you doing? I'm me. I'm good. Um, I have 21 just a little tongue in cheek Me. But most Lewis for the Jets actually changed the Patriots franchise with his head on Drew Bledsoe. Because Who knows if Tom Brady even goes to 10? Super Bowls? If Bledsoe never go down, Okay, Well, that's an interesting twist. Yes, but my main answer, um Lost in Jeb Montana. They turned the same Francisco 49 years completely around that level losers always on the doorstep and completely changed that franchise history to where they became one, the most relevant decorated in sports. Agreed. And now well, it's been a few years they went to a Super Bowl. Obviously going back to the gym, Harbaugh slash Colin Kaepernick days and then, of course, have gone to one with Kyle Shanahan based on the strength of that defense, But, yeah, the combination of Walsh and Montana raised the level of expectation to the point where they were able then to go with Steve Young and Jerry Rice, obviously and even Terrel Owens in his heyday on Benny Other big names who ended up in the Hall of Fame. They just changed as you point out, not not only the winning mentality but the expectations for future groups of Niners and for future franchises. Because we I mean, you think about it. You know, the San Francisco has been Burrell of It has not been that a lot of franchises, you know, have gone two phases and San Francisco's been down, but they never been completely relevant. That's the Jim Tomsula era was pretty rough. It was rough, but I mean, Sanford, they were still I mean, you know they were respected as a franchise. They still are thinking And even even with Chip Kelly It was it was still it was. It wasn't It wasn't the best of terms, but it was still number two, still said it was the 49 to 9, whereas in the set late years the seventies, the 40 Niners are always on the doorstep. Get beat by the Cowboys and the other teams and you know, and then that culture completely turned around whether or not You know, Bill Washington, the head coach, But Montana and wash kind of just built that foundation to where the culture you know, everybody's talking about rebuilding like we've done in Cleveland and buffalo and a lot of these places how the culture changed. I got, you know, I agree. I mean, I feel sorry for all those people who never saw the Niners in their heyday, you never saw Joe Montana play. Sad steps on this. I miss those days e got you, Jesse..

Alan will throw it and it's Holden at the 30 Yard line by Cole Beasley. So they pick up five quick yards. Char various ward. Over their toe. Make sure that Beasley didn't get up and run with it. If the Chiefs are going to continue to play this really aggressive man coverage I would expect at some point Josh down. He seems that single eye safety man outside he's gonna take a shot with John Brown and Stefan digs down the field. Try to stretch it out a little bit. This is the first time the bills have trailed in the second half of a game since week eight. Against Arizona. Give it up to Isaiah Mackenzie running to the right and he gave six yards as he cut it upfield just enough for the first down. So a jet suite for Buffalo. It works for the former Denver Bronco turning the corner. It just doesn't look the same when the Any other team. Besides, it's funny. You're right guys just so fast. It's a good play begins. There's a good job. It's well blocked. Gets the edge picks up the first down and Schuster on that.

What Is Wrong With Cam Newton and the Patriots Offense?
"To ask a questions about Camp because I want to know what we're watching here and what I mean by that is this is somebody who was considered throughout his entire NFL career to be a top ten to twelve came back. He was never great from the pocket. He was never super accurate, but he was not a dumpster fire. So what's happening is is it he's just off falling off a cliff at age Thirty-One, which doesn't necessarily happen very often if at all at the quarterback position where a guy just you know goes from the top ten to twelve guy to just plummeting to literally one of the you know, 557 worst quarterbacks in the League this year. Is it physical with him Jay Glazer said before the game in Glazier usually has some really good information, you know, he kind of keeps a lot of the stuff in his pocket, but when he drop off stuff, it's usually dropping a bomb unless it's, you know, teasing 24 hours out and offensive lineman with covid-19 another story, but you know, you've got you've got Glazer coming out saying he's in an awful lot of pain. Is it is it that like what I just there needs to be a reason Greg there needs to be a reason why I saw a Cam Newton for eight to nine years in Carolina again not be supervised celebrated with a program and and not be you know, incredible breaking defenses down but still effective and now this guy is completely completely a mess. I'm just trying to make sense of it. Is it is it is it physical that he fall off a cliff is this what he is like are the Patriots not necessarily utilizing him in a manner like Carolina did which would make him more effective. I want to get to the bottom of it cuz I feel like what a lot of people are doing right now and it's it's listen. It's Justified criticize them all you want he's been bad, but I feel like we're more criticized in the result instead of asking why like what has gone wrong is this just the inevitable deterioration of a guy who took a lot of hits and is now what he is. I don't know what the answer is. Yeah. Well here's Answer it's a lot of little things that have sort of added up and gotten us to this point because I think you know really I mean really in the past month. He's been bad. In fact that you would say he was average or a little bit above average but I think on the whole this season, I would say Cam Newton is average number one. As far as factors would Newton and why he's not better why it's not working here. Number one for me is he's no longer. He doesn't have the legs. He used to have he is no longer. He's fine, He's still elusive, but he's an aging mobile quarterback and that doesn't really work and that's always been part of the equation with Cam going back to Auburn. Anyone Heisman Trophy you can teams had to respect his legs. They realized they no longer have to respect his legs because he's not going to just dominate a game with his legs anymore. He doesn't have that ability would be so instead of instead of being afraid of Cam in and being like we have to have eyes on cam and we have to do this and that they're know in playing Zone soft his own. They're no longer. They they realize they no longer have to do that. So, you know, they're just stacking the box and they'll play cover-3 on the outside or man-to-man or what-have-you. They they do whatever they want to do coverage wise cuz they know cams not going to beat them. I mean at most what's he going to get ten fifteen yards? Like he's not going to change the game. Number two is the Patriots just distinct lack of weapons and we'll talk about this anymore in a little bit. But I mean look the Patriots are goddamn horrible at everywhere other than running back and offensive line. I mean they are they're I mean, they're awful. They are awful. They're awful in this division there at the bottom of the Barrel in this division below the Jets below the Dolphins certainly below the bills. I mean, they're just it's falling off a cliff. I mean they have nothing they have no tight ends. They have no wide receivers. They they have running backs. Yeah. They have a great offensive line. Yeah, but it's only going to get you so place so so it's all on cam like when you when you take off If if Cam had better weapons if he was saved the bills, I mean if he had Stefon Diggs and Cole Beasley and John Brown and like, you know Gabriel Davis and Dawson box and you know, all these guys all over the place where you can spread them out and they gotta be like, oh crap. Well, we got a double digs because what's going to happen like Then then cam might be able to do some things like between his legs and the lack of weapons. There's just the Patriots are just they're in a telephone booth. They can't they the quarterback can't do anything with the offense of coordinator can't do anything like to me you combine all those things. Plus there's probably some residuals shoulder stuff with Cam you combine all those things? Yeah, and you're right. It's it's not good in offense right

The CDC needs engage her to get people to understand that they need to stay at home, Cancel all non essential gatherings and get through these next few months. The toll is clearly being felt on health care workers. And so so many of us For now, let's simply say that wherever you are in the country, there's a good chance you may be feeling the same stress worry anxiety and fear, as you did during the pandemics earliest days. There is a vaccine three of them actually, the one created by Fizer Given the green light by British regulators this week, ABC is Maggie really was in London when the announcement was made. The UK is now the first country in the world to approve the Fizer vaccine is that they're gonna start rolling it out in just a matter of days. Now, in this first round about 400,000 people are going to get the vaccine. It was gonna go to people that need it the most to people living in care homes, as well as their caregivers were told that millions of doses are going to Go out before the end of this year. Hospitals are standing by vaccination centers are getting set up. This is the fastest vaccine has ever gone from concept to reality and scientists dress, though, that despite that speed, no corners have been cut. The health secretary even offered to take the vaccine live on British television just to prove it. He then went on to say something that I think We've all been waiting to hear, he said. This is the light at the end of the tunnel is confident that by next summer, it could be one that everyone could enjoy. So

Never Surrender, with Garbled Twistory
"Into Slavery Gabriel Prosser grew to be a strapping young man trained as a blacksmith and learned to read he his brothers and his wife hatched a plan to not only a free themselves from bondage, but all enslaved people in Virginia their plan was to gather more men take over the capitol of Richmond and kill all the white people with the exception of methodists Quakers and the French processor. Would then rule the New Kingdom of Virginia. The plan didn't work. My name's Moxi and this is your brain on facts. Why didn't they Rebel this is a question that should have occurred to every American schoolchild when studying the Civil War and slavery. Why didn't they Rebel the truth of the matter is they did more than one third of the population in the south in the eighteenth Century or enslaved people in the 1943 Book American negro slave revolts historian Herbert aptheker estimated. There were over 250 rebellions of enslaved people in the US between 1619 and 1865 some historians put that number over 300. So rebellion was a lot more common than we were led to believe and even if enslaved people weren't taking apart in an armed Uprising many would fight back in small ways painting food work slowdowns feigning injury. Damaging equipment and so forth the new world had slave rebellions basically as long as there were people enslaved. They're the first documented Rebellion taking place on San Domingo on Christmas Day 1522 some rebellions managed to make it into the history books and pop culture like the seizure of the Amistad when a boat full of kidnapped Africans over through their captors and took control of the ship to both win their freedom and be memorialized in a film by Steven Spielberg. The first recorded slave revolt in the United States happened an hour down the road from me in Gloucester Virginia in 1663. White indentured servants included enslaved Africans in their plan to do away with their master and be free another servant betrayed them and was rewarded with his freedom. It would be nearly twenty-five years as far as we know off. Before the first all black slave revolt which again took place in Virginia. The largest slave rebellion outside the United States was the successful Insurrection of black slaves that overthrew French rule and abolished slavery in Saint domingue establishing the agenda nation of Haiti that proved unequivocally that the enslaved could defeat their captors and live free that precedent frightened and slavers on the mainland suck slave owners actively repressed any sign of rebellion laws dictating when where and how slaves could congregate were enacted to prevent Insurrection and quavo light paranoia. It's the same reason the enslaved were forbidden from learning to read or write words spread ideas and your captives May develop repetto Mania wage medical condition and let this make you grateful your doctor actually had to go to school the mental illness that caused black slaves to want to run away. Yeah, that's what these folks told themselves in case you thought the narrative myth of the happy slave was a recent invention. With Plantation populations under tight control Insurrection would tend to come from the cities or parts of the country where there were lots of small farms rather than one big one. We don't have time today to talk about all three hundred rebellions. We'll just hit on some of the ones that are most likely to make you ask why you're high school history textbook included between zero and one slave rebellion. Well at the same time definitely mentioning white John Brown at Harpers Ferry. Records are a bit spotty for our first subject the Stono Rebellion in South Carolina in 1793. History is colored both by the mouth of the teller and the ear of The Listener with their preconceptions, and we only have one firsthand contemporary account. Early on a late-summer Sunday morning 20 enslaved people gathered near the Stono River Why Sunday morning a recently passed law required all woke up men to carry firearms with them to church on Sunday. So the rebels made their move when the men and at least some of the guns would be elsewhere.
The S in USA stands for swindle
"Lipson recently made the leap from Indonesia to America and he's starting to think that the in USA stands for swindle. It was meant to be a simple day out. Hirakata gopher drive have lunch come home but in the United States and certainly here in Washington. Dc nothing is simple. Everything it seems is in fact a swindle. I The hire car online. The quote was about sixty five Australian dollars eminently reasonable so I booked but going in to pick out the keys the price had inexplicably gone up to one hundred fifteen dollars mice double. I had chosen to limit liability for about ten dollars but the Matt's still didn't add up. This is life in America where the price never the price taxes fees and surcharges and never included in the quoted price. Even when you ask what you need to pay for Sandwich or concert ticket or phone plan your told one price and then watch the cash register magically throw up an extra ten or twenty percent and to be clear. This is before the much maligned cheap. Anyway I booked the car. It was a Friday afternoon and the Hayek Office was about to close for some reason. It was open every day until seven pm except Fridays when I closed up shop at five so I asked if I could prepay for an additional hour or two on Saturday since returning the car by four thirty in the afternoon would limit our options for such saying. I was told that would incur. Another one hundred fifteen dollars even for a few extra minutes a full day's charge of course that's why the office shuts at five on Fridays. They know people are more likely to book an extra day or get distracted a winery and perhaps missed the deadline. Like we almost did so to swindles before. I even put the key in the ignition. We drove to hop ferry and historic town. Where in eighteen fifty nine abolitionist John Brown through gasoline on the flames of civil war by instigating a revolt by armed slaves. We set the map to the visitor's center and just before we arrived Lo and behold a toll booth. It was thirty dollars to drive onto the side told myself well. We pay for National Parks in Australia. So I suppose it's reasonable. He will give him some great assistance by a real American Park Ranger in a real smokybear style hat. He very helpfully pointed out shuttle bus. That would take us to the side but as we shuttle past the toll booth and down the road to town. I realized this was the same road. We'd just driven on anyone. In the know had just driven straight to town and avoided the thirty dollar fee swindled number three felt even worse because smokey. The Bay was the culprit. We bought some hot dogs for lunch and then with tip paid double what the number on the chalkboard suggested then eventually got shuttle bus back to the car and headed for home since we had a bit of time pass leave. I thought why don't take the scenic. Route turned off the freeway but they once again and other toll booth scenic route was in fact a toll road no warning sign of a fee ahead no way to reverse out turnaround just slot for our credit card. Another nine dollars enough to three kilometers and other toll booth and other credit card slot and another six dollars as a straight talking strengthen. It's hard not to get upset at these constant traps here in the United States. After my time in Indonesia wrongly concluded it was the Bali's street Hawker had to keep your eye on it turns out it's the overly polite American. That's the biggest threat to your wallet. I guess it's the logical conclusion of capitalism running rampant combined with undefended social services like national parks and roads. Even smokey the bear has had to become. Shall we say street smart to keep honey on the table? It seems you have to be shock just to get by. Gold knows how someone who struggles with English or numbers would cope. Maybe they don't and it makes a little more sense to me. How the nation's most famous shock a dealmaker who repeatedly dotted contractors secured? Hundreds of millions of dollars in questionable tax breaks and delivered subpar apartments to customers could be revived by his supporters as a very stable genius
Is BP's Shift for Real?
"Story number one is all about be p the P is of course for petroleum now be once said it wanted to get beyond petroleum more than a decade ago that strategy failed and now BP has a new CEO Bernard Looney. He came in recently in announced almost immediately that the company is going to try to offset or eliminate all of its carbon emissions by twenty fifty. Looney also said that he wants a fifty percent reduction in carbon intensity and he says ep will just depend less on oil production for its revenue and continue to ramp up in clean energy. And finally it's going to support a carbon taxes or climate related policy and pull out any money from climate denying trade organizations. Now this is a big deal for a company that has a very spotty record but there are not many details yet and loonie says that they'll those details will come in September so jigger we know that you used to work for BP. We have seen this movie before when BP attempted to rebrand beyond petroleum in the early two thousands. Is this any different? Yeah I think it is different right. So what about it? I think what happened under John Brown. Was that there was a realization on. John. Brown's part that this was a megatrend the BP had to figure out that it didn't know what it was doing but it really had to figure it out and John. Was Lord Browne actually. I was very dedicated to doing it. You Know Tony Hayward Org remind us who lured Brown is so Lord. Browne was the longest the loudness CEO and VP history. I think he was. Ceo for twenty years he found the prudhoe. Bay Alaska Find Which is really what made. Bp As a corporation and became CEO in the late eighties and busy never missed a quarterly earnings report. Until sort of the end of his tenure was heralded as probably one of the most powerful oil. Ceo's in modern times and and you know when you think about the people came after him right Tony Hayward and others Bob Dudley was actually my boss before I left. Bp Solar And so it was one of those things where where people ridiculed John Brown after? He laughed thought that he was distracted by non oil pursuits and the beyond petroleum stuff. And I think what the data shown is at pretty much every single unconventional oil project that BP has embarked on In the last ten years has lost money pretty much every single one and they are now worried that what the krona virus and everything else going on that oil prices might actually stay it forty fifty dollars a barrel forever because we've hit peak demand. Which was you know another artifact that was crafted by BP Guy Right so one of my bosses at BP was tool Aria. Who's now at the Cambridge Energy Research Group and and they you know he's crafted this peak demand scenario which. I think a lot of oil people believe now that we're never going to get above. Let's call it one hundred and three million barrels a day of oil so these are macro fundamental trends that BP is now starting to come to grips with saying their oil and business is actually fundamentally Not Profitable for future oil finds that they're looking for now. Bob Dudley the former CEO who Looney took over the company from you mentioned in a recent episode. His interview with Jason Board off of the Columbia Energy Exchange podcast. And you criticize him for that interview saying that he really wasn't in touch with the reality of the changing energy markets today. So Bob Dudley. What did he do at BP? And how might looney change that? So Bob Dudley came through the Amoco side of the business and then when BP Amoco merged in the ninety eight. I think it was twenty. Eight is when he joined. Bp At the time B. P. was all about gas. I mean it was a long time ago now but but Natural gas was a waste fuel. It was not counted in reserves. Right so when you went to a stock analyst and they care deeply in the oil industry about reserve replacement ratio. Natural gas wasn't allowed to be counted in that today. Exxon Mobil seventy percent of their reserve place ratio is natural gas. So that was Bob Dudley's education right. It was really the power of gas. And that's what you know Lord Browne of inculcated in him and you know and then he went to Russia he you know our assets and BP were taken over by the government and then he fled in the middle of the night and like had to be kept in a secret location because people feared for his life. I mean those are the kinds of experiences that shaped Bob Dudley. And but to this day he's really just a natural gas fan. He just believes very strongly that the way. Bp gets there in this changing world is by converting everything to gas. Catherine you sat down and you watched Bernard loonies speech. What did he say? And what feels different to you? Yes so interestingly he just got this job. A couple of weeks ago He started at BP as an entry level engineer in early in his career nineteen ninety-one or something so he's grown up in that company so he knows a lot about the company so two weeks into being the CEO isn't starting a job without knowing anything about it. And I spoke to Mary Street. A friend of mine who works at BP. She's a senior vice president of communications and External Affairs. And she said he is setting a new direction Of course the double is in the details of how that's going to be executed but the speech was pretty impressive to his employees and investors and stakeholder community. Which is they're going to be reimagining. Energy reinventing EP and performing wild transforming. That's how he put it. And they have ten main goals or aims as he says five of them are internal so they wanna get to net zero across their operations on an absolute basis by twenty fifty or earlier they WanNa get to net zero on carbon in their oil and gas production by twenty fifty or sooner they wanna cut their carbon intensity of their products that they sell by fifty percent by twenty fifty or sooner they need to install methane measurement on all of their processing sites and reduced intensity by fifty percent and they want to increase the proportion of investment into non oil and gas businesses over time. And they're even saying that is going to increase while their oil and gas investment is going to decrease and then there are other five goals. Those are sort of the five internal goals the five external goals are that they want to more actively advocate for Pie policies that support at zero including carbon pricing. And what they would do is shift dollars from reputational advertising so all those ads you see on tv about how awesome oil and gas are. Those funds would be shifted into policy advocacy. They would incentivize their employees to you know to deliver on some of these goals. They would set expectations for relationships with trade associations. And that's gonNA come out later. This month and analysis of what trade associations they want to still affiliate with and which ones they can no longer affiliated with based on this new direction They want to be recognized as being very transparent and align with all these disclosure groups to make sure that people know what they do remember. They have had people protesting outside of their headquarters every day for a very long time And then they want to launch a new team to help others decarbonised and to look for New Investments. So with these ten aims. He's really serious about this and I think it is setting. A new trajectory for the company will be really interesting to see in September. What the details of that are and how they do plan to go to net zero on the carbon intensity and all that

BP chief backs shift towards renewable energy
"Choo investor resolutions at BP's annual meeting, and Abidine this week, shade high pressure is building on oil companies to take action on climate change political discusses, how the oil companies are responding with Angela Weaver, and blessing hook. Up already the way. People around the work for her life. At the same time, Harmon emissions need to come out at a much faster pace that is seeking. That more energy emissions dot is to charge. That was Helga loaned, the chairman of BP outlining the company's commitment to transitioning to a low carbon energy system at their AGM in Aberdeen. This week shareholders had to climate change resolutions to vote on an epidemic. Edgeley. You were up there what happened. So everyone was waiting for these two resolutions to come up for debate. Now, one was backed by p and brought forward by climate action. One hundred plus which is an initiative, led by group of investors, and they were calling on BP to demonstrate how its business strategy aligns with the Paris climate goals. And now the second resolution was proposed by follow this dodge shareholder group, and essentially this one was different because not only was it calling on the P to set targets for its carbon emissions going forward. But these targets also should include those of. Of its products, so essentially, the emissions of its consumers, and that's essentially what shall has done. That's what shall has agreed to do. Right. But in this case, BP management back the climate action one hundred plus resolution but not the other one. Why was that BP claims that the follow this resolution would not allow for flexibility through the energy transition? They say we don't know what this energy transition is going to look like we don't want to put hard targets are legally binding on ourselves or on our consumers who's use of our products, we can't control. That's what they say. And does that sound like a reasonable explanation to you? So this is where it gets very interesting because most climate activists and increasing the investors say that these emissions from the use of the products are essential to accounting for how we really progress through this, energy transition and oil and gas. Companies must be held accountable for these emissions now. I do have some sympathy for oil and gas companies in the sense that they don't know what this energy transition looks like, however, most people, I speak to you think that BP right now is in the same position that shell was in a few years ago. And at some point they too would also have to include these emissions in some way into their forward-planning. Leslie, do you have any sympathy with bay pays position. I don't know about sympathy, but I think it is hard to account for the emissions of your consumer. So I can see the sort of legality of that narrow argument. I think what's been really interesting, though, is something that Angela is actually written about, which is where the RND dollars are going for these companies, although BP has started talking a lot more about climate change. And they've certainly made it a sort of headline item on their agenda there. Aren. These spending hasn't really followed. Those words. Yes. Exactly. And even in. The opinion piece that Helgoland wrote in the F T, and in his public comments it a, he's very clear that BP's also going to have to transform its business. But what does this look like it's unbelievably murky, we have no idea is he talking about increasing our independent low-carbon fuels and technologies is he talking about shifting towards renewable? It's not entirely clear. What this means in the BP context, and this is what investors really are trying to gain some more clarity on a lot of these invested discussions with the companies have essentially been company led. It's what the companies are comfortable with talking about BP's, not committing to a particular direction. They say we've been there before, under the John Brown era petroleum beyond petroleum. They invested huge amounts in renewables. And they ended up losing a lot of money. And so this was the point that Helga loons made at the GM, as well as in the opinion piece, which is that we want to be. An investable company and I think that was his way of saying, we need to keep on investing in oil and gas. And there is a real dichotomy there because ultimately BP makes money from selling fossil fuels calls emissions, and they don't really know how they will make money if they stop doing that. So I sort of get the sense that, while there's a lot more talk about it. There's not a clear answer of where revenue is going to come from if they're no longer selling fossil fuels on the other hand, you've got companies like shell and hotel. You know, the really going out there saying, we're investing in not just gasp, renewables and renewable power. And this is all feature. But most analysts who look at the sector and even the executives themselves will say to the margins here, incredibly low compared to is stark and traditional businesses. But also, we don't really know what this is going to look like for us. And this is the point BP's trying to make, which is we're not going to go down that path blindly again. Just taking a punt on the huge amounts of pressure from every. Body in terms of crime activists, and the investors who want this investment into the cleaner fuels business and into renewables. I mean Greenpeace this week, blockaded BP's entrances. I was going to ask you about that it was quite an extraordinary defection even for Greenpeace because they actually stopped staff going into BP headquarters Ryan, where it's quite interesting to compare that to the shell AGM which was happening on the same day over in the Hague. And apparently, there were very few protests or any sort of action going on over there, certainly nothing, like staff being stopped from getting into buildings and things. And do you think that that's because shell has been clearer about its determination to invest in renewables, and lower carbon forms of energy, then B P so far? And do you think that BP is worried about that? And that's why it took the steps that it did this way. I think BP's just a different point than shell shell faced this kind of backlash Affi years ago. Let's also remember. That shell is very much a dodge company and this huge amounts of domestic pressure. And this is now only ricocheting around the world, you know, to all the European companies as well as US counterparts, but, you know, the protesters this week were saying to be, you must shift all your investment into renewables, or go bust, but it's not entirely clear if that's the strategy. Yeah. And this is just the latest example we've seen of shareholders, trying to pressure oil and gas companies and indeed coal companies to disclose more about the future plans and targets and investments and talk more about the financial and physical risks that they might face by climate change. Ultimately, do you really think this is going to shift the dial? When it comes to lowering global carbon emissions through the investors say, there's a sort of a three pronged approach here. The first is to get these companies to be more transparent. Then it's to get them to set tie. Targets on their emissions and then the third bit of this strategy is to shift their investments towards cleaner fuels cleaner energies into ready. Get a handle on the investment component here, but it's not clear to me, how long that is going to take an if these companies are going to agree to shift the businesses in a meaningful way. And there's also just a place devil's advocate. I think there is a real question about what is the company's responsibility versus the government's responsibility? Where does the role of policymakers and business leaders begin? I mean at time when we're seeing global emissions still rising. The world is not on track to meet the Paris climate goals. A lot of that is due to government inaction as well as what companies are doing. We've seen that globally, governments haven't really stepped up to make the types of commitments that they would need to live in a two degree world, which then sort of empowers the companies to say, well, if the governments haven't figured this. Out, then why is that our job? So I can sort of see their twenty few in that way, would sort of just make two further points, which is that let's be clear. The world is still using huge amounts of oil and gas will using one hundred million barrels a day of oil. So from the company's point of view, if the demand is there, at least for now, why would they pull back that's the first point? And the second point is that, you know, to what extent can these companies really transition? Yeah. Just finally one way that the oil majors trying to prove that this series of crime. It changes by making these big investments in renewable energy. We saw one of those this week lately that you wrote about that actually shows that this getting quieter crowded field. Yes, we've just seen two of Europe's largest utilities g of France and EDP of Portugal tie up all of their offshore wind assets, which is going to create a bit of an offshore wind behemoth. An already we've seen a former oil and gas company known as Dong become or stud. It's now the world's largest offshore wind developer, and we do see more and more traditional energy companies, try and go that direction the company, formerly known as Stott oil now Ecuador, it also has a growing offshore wind business, so there is some indication that the traditional energy companies are really pushing in that direction although globally last year. What was very striking is that we had some numbers out a couple of days ago from the. A that suggested total global investment in clean energy. In fact fell a little bit last year. Despite the surge of interest from European energy groups, the global picture is still not quite as rosy. Thank you, Leslie, and angelie. That was police Clark took into a senior energy.
