"I'm Scott Simon. Thank you for joining us. And this week forget about build back better. There's a new bill in town. It's called the inflation reduction act of 2022. And if it becomes law Democrats say it would reduce the deficit cut for it old spending on prescription drugs and provide hundreds of billions of dollars to help the country address climate change. The package contains the most substantial climate legislation in U.S. history, and we're joined now by democratic senator John hickenlooper of Colorado. Senator, thanks so much for being with us. Of course, Scott glad to be with you. What kind of action do you think this bill would take on climate? Oh, this is without question the most significant climate rescue initiative in the history of the world. No other country has made this kind of a commitment to really taking climate rescue and accelerating it quickly. What would it do? What specific points in the legislation? This is $369 billion towards addressing climate change. Have over a $100 billion of clean energy tax credits. It's going to put $10 billion towards helping the households of working people allow them to winterize their homes and put in things like heat pumps that are greener and more sustainable for the planet. It's going to allow them to put in special stoves that are more efficient and use a lot less energy. All this stuff goes towards this constant effort to, how are we going to be able to address climate change in a way that really succeeds and this reduces our carbon emissions by 40% by 2030 it makes a huge, huge, huge job in terms of achieving President Biden's goals. Some environmental issues, I don't have to tell you, don't like some of the tradeoffs. For example, the requirement for the interior department offered at least 2 million acres a year. For offshore oil and gas leases. How do you handle that? Well, I think what we need to do is go to a clean energy transition. So we won't need that oil and gas. Like any negotiated Bill, this is always going to be a compromise. In the end, Joe Manchin and Chuck Schumer negotiated this bill for a long time. And I trust both of them as two very good negotiators that it was the best bill they could come up with. I don't have to tell you how much senator Manchin was assailed by people in your own party. As a tool of corporate interests as an inauthentic Democrat. But was the key to working with him? Well, Joe Manchin really never wavered. He talked about inflation back in January. He said it was a primary concern. We began seeing spikes in inflation numbers several months ago. He got very cautious. A lot of what various senators worked on was trying to get modeling done that showed there is not inflation. If we do these things. And indeed, there's an argument that we always underestimate how rapidly innovations in energy use are going to bring costs down. I mean, solar now is ten times lower, but it's one tenth the cost it was ten years ago, wind energy is one 5th the cost. These are huge changes, and they will only increase the level at which we are lowering costs for everybody in this country. And at the same time, making sure that we don't roast our planet. Can you win the vote in the Senate? You need every democratic vote to assume you won't get a Republican one. Senator sinema, Arizona. I think so. I have not talked to senator sinema, and she's cares deeply about some of the tax measures that have been discussed. But again, she's a good, consistent negotiator. Just like Joe Manchin, I mean, people criticize Joe Manchin, but he always talked about inflation. He always talked about wanting to make sure that working people didn't have to pay 5 or $6 a gallon for gasoline. All these things should be addressed by us going faster into clean energy so that we use less of that. And I think senator sinema, I think all the progressives in the Senate are going to see the benefits of this initiative are going to far outweigh whatever the costs are. Well, let me ask you about the cost $433 billion in this package. Congress has already passed a $1.2 trillion infrastructure Bill. The U.S. national debt. Is already more than $30 trillion. But how do you handle the argument that Democrats are spending money the U.S. doesn't have? Well, that's one of the things that Joe Manchin insisted on was that we have $300 billion of deficit reduction. And every other part of this bill is paid for, allowing Medicare to negotiate for prescription drugs and it ramps up a little slowly at first, but this will ultimately save a couple $100 billion over ten years and ultimately lower costs for prescription drugs for all Americans. But it also have to pass the House, and there are very thin democratic majority there, and a few members of the house are already voicing their concern that for one thing child tax credits aren't in the Bill. And lifting of the $10,000 cap on state and local deductions. How do you respond to that? Well, I think that the cap on state and local deductions was something Joe Manchin, he wants to fight for tax breaks for lower income families. The people that he represents in West Virginia who need the most help. And that cap was really a lowering taxes for the wealthiest. If you really look at who benefits from it, if I might put it this way, was that just a concession you had to make to get his vote? You know, in the end, Joe Manchin, and this is because he is a very conservative Democrat, but he is a Democrat. Again, if he were to switch and decide he wants to be a Republican, and I'm sure the Republicans have made entreaties to him many times, but we would lose the majority in the Senate if he switched. He could be the chair of whatever committee he wanted to. I'm sure the Republicans would give him anything. We would lose our committee chairs. We would dramatically slow down the approval of judicial appointments of appointments to the cabinet. The fact that Joe Manchin, despite the fact that he is more conservative than pretty much any Democrat in the Senate, he stays with it because he is a Democrat. And you can tell just from the way he negotiated this, that he cares deeply about working people. He did not support the child tax credits. He felt that that was too expensive and that we didn't yet enough benefit for the cost. By being the most conservative, he's that last vote. So in the end, you've got to get him to sign off on something on any of these things. And that was just something you had to do. I think that was the only way we could get a bill done. And

"Auditorium. With so many mass shootings, it's easy to forget the unique horror of that night. A large movie theater full of Batman fans. At a midnight premiere of the latest movie. A failed neuroscience grad student, heavily armed and in tactical gear opened fire, killing 12 people. It was quickly revealed that the gunman had sought psychiatric help before the shooting. And that's where lawmakers turned their focus. We really have a duty after tragedies to look at what we do and how we act how we help each other. That's Colorado's governor at the time John hickenlooper. The state would set up a toll free hotline. Patient friendly walk in clinics, mobile, mental health services. We believe these policies will reduce the probability of bad things happening to good people. This was radical stuff at the time. And it was the brainchild of a Colorado state staffer named Chris habgood. When hickenlooper asked for ideas, have good happened to be ready. How about this? We've got a report handy right now that the biggest gap in our system is the crisis delivery. What had been an obscure government project suddenly became a signature policy of the governor of Colorado. This was a big deal in the mental health community, and it caught the attention of a mental healthcare executive in Arizona named David Covington. Later, he told a Denver judge why he submitted a bid for the $40 million plus contract to run the state's crisis program. We thought this is where the country is going. This is what people will be looking at. So we wanted to bring the a team to that. Colorado's existing mental health centers also submitted a bid. It's the upstart versus the status quo. And Covington won. I was looking at houses to move here, looking at schools, in the beginning to craft out how we would engage employees, but he soon gets distressing news. Covington has told that his bid is under investigation by state authorities. The bid was invalidated on a technicality. Apparently, at the behest of Colorado's politically powerful mental health providers. So Covington sues Colorado, the judge sides with him, saying in court that the state had no good reason to cancel Covington's bid. It just defies reason and it does suggest a manufactured reason to cancel as a result, the state's existing mental health centers cut a confidential deal with Covington to get him to leave the state. It doesn't allow either party to comment. Former governor hickenlooper now a U.S. senator didn't respond to a request for comment. Habgood, the state staffer in charge of the reforms, left his job, not long after. This should have been the Pinnacle of his career, a chance to build something out of a mass shooting that might prevent another. And then all of a sudden it comes to a crashing halt because there's winners and losers and the losers we're going to make sure that they were not the losers. A potent example of how difficult even bipartisan reforms are. Now, ten years after the aurora theater shooting, Colorado still has one of the worst rates of access to mental

"We just give you a hint. Every republican that runs for statewide office is going to be asked. Do you believe in the results of the twenty twenty election and the problem is that in parts of the country maybe a larger percent of the population. That believes that the results fraudulent but in colorado colorado look. I know there's people that believe. The results were fraudulent. But it's not a majority. Then you're gonna have a problem running for statewide office in colorado because of that issue and i think look for that to be a lingering issue and a heated subject in the weeks the most well it absolutely is you take a look. I point back to You know cory gardner and john hickenlooper race. Right and cory gardner was the third. Most bipartisan senator. And look at all these things. They okay well. It looks like he's doing. he's reaching across the aisle. What what Middle of the road person would would want and he got beat soundly because he was between a rock and hard place. Are you gonna come out and say you know. I don't stand with president trump or you're gonna come out and say you know i'm with president trump and the cholera in colorado president trump was not well liked So the republican party here in colorado. It's got a long ways to go. It's a huge challenge for the republican party. Moving forward is because look there are people in this state who love donald trump and would vote for him in a second if they were had the opportunity to do so again. The problem is is that they don't represent the majority of the state of colorado. That is a huge challenge and but the problem is if the republicans denounced in this. State denounced trump. They're gonna lose a sizable amount of people. Who would otherwise support them. So they're facing that. Cory gardner dilemma. Of what do you do moving forward. And this is going to be a challenge. And as long as donald trump is dominating which she's still is sort of a national political discourse. It is going to be a challenge. I know people could probably listening to this. And they're super mass. The problem is is the numbers. Aren't there in colorado for a statewide win for a trump Supported candidate now. Maybe the times can change. Things can change in years so but right. Now it's not there you saw in the last election and so moving forward. This is a huge problem for the republican. Having a party as they scramble the figure out what they can do moving forward when they've been trounced in statewide elections for the last two cycles. Yeah i if somebody's listening is mad about that. They've got no right to because that those are just facts. I don't care what side of the political you're on right now. Republicans in colorado specifically are in shambles. Chris i want to keep this conversation going but need to grab a break here. Can you hang out with me for sec. Yes can okay. Let's let's get a break here. It's no co now presented by the j nine agencies. We'll be back with kris van. Veen when we come back on.

"I put a mobile. I recommend that as well now. Let's talk about setting up a classroom when you talk about sitting classroom right. Obviously there's things on the wall that very important I put my desk in a corner. And i try and make it easy for me to access but not so easy for a student to walk over to right because i. I don't like to do a lot of work with a student at my desk right. And this is again my approach and there's a lot of teachers who do it differently and that's okay I do not like to have students behind my desk. That's why i like to keep papers. That's where i like to keep in my bag my lunch all that stuff. My my personal stuff. So i kind of angled in the corner so that a student would have to go really you know around to to get into it. I could see that. Or you know. And i can kind of keep them away from that And i have a. I have a podium right next to desk where i begin my class from an on. My podium I you know. I keep my attendance sheet psychic extra pence. I keep extra pencils for the kids. I keep the popsicle sticks for calling on students at random. They love the popsicle sticks. All let me now. Let me tell you And you know maybe we can talk about popsicle sticks another another episode but on the podium. I have a lot of other visual stimuli. Because it's all i got this. I got this from another teacher. Years ago i would say at least ten now And it was falling apart when i got it. I mean it's made of real bare. Bones would like in apply flimsy plywood and and bad nails so to keep it from falling apart. I started a slap bumper stickers on it and i started with I started with bumper stickers. That i got it fourth of july rally right in my town on the fourth of july the the local republicans and the local democrats show up and they put out a table near the parade route and they try and encourage people to join the republicans and the democrats and they give out bumper stickers. So high grabble right and i grabbed him from both tables and if there is a third party or a fourth party that shows up i grabbed those two right. I'm not not trying to be biased. Turning although just having bumper stickers from political parties has gotten me accused of bias. I don't know how. But you know. So i slapped those on there as a way to keep the podium from falling apart and also to kind of get kids into thinking that maybe there's a connection between history and government and politics and society right so And as the years go on these bumper stickers reflect past political campaigns that Most people probably wouldn't remember anymore candidates that you might not remember like john hickenlooper right. Who ran for president in two thousand sixteen right. I mean people don't make the primaries they still have bumper stickers and sometimes it's kind of interesting and message to a kid is like. Hey maybe i can run for. President are i could run for local office. I can run for town council right. So i've got bumper stickers political candidates but also got a messages about you. Don't use your cell phone. I've got messages like you know pro pro women messages you know like Feminism is the radical idea that a woman is a is a human being these types of things just a lot of color. A lot of a lot of messages that Hopefully good kids thinking and excited and maybe even asked me about right so The nature of my subject matter. Of course you know that. I deal with history. I deal with politics ideal society and current events and so in a if it sounds like it may be biased. Well you know kids have their opinions and their you know. The part of my job is to get them to express their opinions and to make them into arguments ryan and so the bumper stickers posters all the stuff in my rumor designed to provoke to elicit and guide opinions into well framed evidence-based critical thought. That's what i'm about so the desks. And here's a big one right when you sit what i'm setting up a classroom. I've tried just about every type of setup for the chairs and the desks in the room. And i've tried circles. I've tried islands. I've tried you know everything and what it has come to be my Most effective setup is just straight up. Rose right just rose. No islands. No curves no circles. No no large tables for just a desk and a chair kid in the data in the chair at the desk and doesn't sound exciting and it certainly is not creative. But it's a tool of classroom management. That i use and again let me say for like the third or fourth time on this podcast. This is just how i do it. It is not wrong to do it another way. And if it works for you a different way than great this is works for me right and it works for me because oftentimes i find. It's less distracting if the kids are in rows and it leads to less Less fees for the students to just pop up and walk around the round the room right which can totally disrupt not only that student but a number of other students. Somebody gets up and starts walking around the room right. There are times. I want them to work together. There are times. I want them to work alone. There are times. I want them to listen to me. There are times. I do want them to get up and walk around the room but i want to be in charge of those times. I wanna be able to orchestrate to manage the that movement. And i have found for me to manage that movement of my students. It works best for me to have them in straight up ropes and so. I've put my desks into. I think i have that five different rows of about six desks. perot maybe. maybe they're six rows. Actually because i've got something like thirty seven desks in my room right now. I certainly hope. I don't have thirty seven students but if i do i'm ready for that and so That allows me to move as a single. You know thought body moved through the rows without them being able to move your easily through the rows and keeps them feel kinda looking at a certain point and i do a lot of instruction from the front of the room And i'll talk about how. I structure every class in another podcasts. Until you won't lead you through. How i do a whole class right now but i do have routines that i follow and And this this desk set. Up is one way that i maintain classroom management The other thing is that. I have by the door. Right of this is of course Exactly catty corner or directly diagonal from my desk right. The front door is is on the opposite side of the room diagonally from or catty corner from my desk. And my coding where i often you know will will be positioned if i'm talking or making a whole class message now. The reason for that is because above the door. When you walk in. You don't see it but when you turn around it's right there above the door. I have my boy band posters. that's right. I have boy band posters in my room. me You know middle aged white male has boy band. Posters have have justin bieber. I have Let's see. I have five seconds of summer and i have a s bts. And i think. I have one more i forget. Now why do. I have boy band posters above the door in my room Because it's silly because it's stupid because it gets the kid's game giggle And of course.

Anthony blinken of the potential collapse of kabul soon after the us is august thirty first troop withdrawal deadline in afghanistan. The classified cable represents the clearest evidence yet that the administration had been warned by its own officials on the ground that the taliban's advance was imminent and afghanistan's military may be unable to it. Hundreds of people took to the streets in kabul and other cities in afghanistan on thursday to protest. The ouster of the country's democratic government by the taliban many in the crowd waved the green and black flag of afghanistan chanting our flag. Our pride and god is great.

The texas education agency confirmed that his rule banning mandates will not be enforced until legal challenges against it are settled but then the texas supreme court stepped in and declined to block a restraining order against the ban thereby allowing schools to require students to wear masks. Now although there has been a mask mandate in the house of representatives. No such rule is or has been in effect in the senate so it came as no surprise that three. Us senators all tested positive. For covert nineteen on thursday colorado. Senator john hickenlooper from maine angus king and roger wicker of mississippi all released statements about testing positive for covert nineteen within hours of each other. All saying they had mild symptoms. although they're fully vaccinated their positive tests highlight the vaccinations purpose to prevent serious illness and death. Here we go again. Capitol hill was locked down for over five hours on thursday as a man in a black pickup truck parked on the sidewalk of the library of congress near the capital claiming to have a bomb. The man idead as forty nine year. Old floyd ray. Roseberry of north carolina streamed himself on facebook live for nearly four hours spewing lies about the twenty twenty election being stolen and threatening to blow up two and a half blocks around the capital before facebook finally cut the feed and shut down his page. The man surrendered to police after hours of negotiations and although bomb-making materials were found in his truck there were no explosive devices but adding insult to injury congressmen and senate candidate from alabama mo brooks defended him. He tweeted out a statement that read quote sadly violence and threats of violence targeting. America's political institutions are far too common. Although this terrorist motivation is not yet publicly known and generally speaking i understand citizenry anger directed at dick tutorial socialism and its threat to liberty freedom and the very fabric of american society He continued the way to stop. Socialism's march is for patriotic americans to fight back in the twenty twenty two and twenty twenty four elections. I strongly encourage patriotic americans to do exactly that more. So than ever. Before bluntly stated america's future is at risk shouldn't siding with a domestic terrorist be illegal especially for a member of congress asking for a friend so you recall how the texas house democrats left the state last month denying. The republican majority a quorum thereby preventing them from passing new voting suppression legislation. They held a united front remaining in. Dc lobbying congress to pass federal legislation to prevent these efforts to rest control of elections. Well on thursday. After thirty eight days three of the democrats returned to texas and to the state house floor allowing the legislature to reach a quorum effectively ending the democrats valiant effort to protect the right to vote the three representatives garnet coleman anna hernandez armanda said in a joint statement that they were quote proud of the heroic work of the boycott and vowed to continue the fight on the house floor They cited the catastrophic surgeon kovic nineteen cases and the need to manage the crisis as their reason for coming back. But even with those three democrats voting. No the bill will most likely pass. Obviously a federal remedy is needed and to that end on tuesday congresswoman. Terri sewell of alabama introduced. Hr four the john. Lewis voting rights advancement. Act of twenty twenty one. It expands federal voting protections to all fifty states providing oversight of any state or local government. That has had repeated election violations. It would also stop more subtle voter suppression rules and would stop courts from changing election. Rules that disenfranchise voters during an election. The house will take up that bill when it returns from a break on monday august twenty third but the fate of the bill will probably be determined in the senate where so far only one republican lisa. Murkowski of alaska has signaled support. The bill will die there. Unless senate democrats agree to carve out an exception that would enable them to pass it without the filibuster. They gotta do something. And that's just a bit of what's news for now on nicole sandler if you appreciate these reports and the nicole sandler show. I hope you'll consider making contribution.

"The show we turn on. Msnbc what a day this has been today not one not two. But three united states senators all announced that they have just contracted cove in nineteen republican. Senator roger wicker of mississippi independent senator angus king of maine and democratic senator john hickenlooper of colorado all announced today that they have all tested positive. All three of these men were fully vaccinated Which just puts a spotlight on. How very very contagious. The delta variant of this viruses the delta variant basically is makes up the exclusive variant in our country. Now it also underscores the administration's decision this week to recommend that fully vaccinated americans should get booster shots starting next month. All three senators got infected even though they were vaccinated. Statistically speaking all three are likely to be okay because they were vaccinated. The good news on cova today is that within the last twenty four hours the united states is back up over one million vaccine doses administered per day we've been below a million doses per day for the last seven weeks or so but now apparently the messages sinking in enough that the pace of vaccination is picking back up. Americans are deciding to get the shot over a million doses administered in the past twenty four hours for the first time. That's true for the first time. In nearly seven weeks i think in general the covert news is dire enough to change minds in many southern states in particular right. Now we're gonna be talking tonight about new cova developments throughout the country but in particular an alarm bell that was just wrong by the university of alabama And it's an alarm bells ringing that. I'm not sure how that state or how anybody is supposed to respond to it. We've got that story ahead tonight. we'll also be talking about the utterly bizarre but somehow also totally predictable story out of washington today in which a man in a pickup truck pulled up onto the sidewalk in front of the library of congress. The starting an hours long bomb threat. Standoff this is a man with many many incoherent but oddly self-assured thoughts about politics including his hope and his expectation that president biden will leave office and former president. Donald trump will soon be reinstated and all the democrats will be in jail This man did not blow anything up. He is in custody tonight. We'll have more on that story coming up as well but look at these images today. This is ap images shot by an api videographer in kabul. I could not expect necessarily see anything like this at least not now. This is a huge long flag. They have unfurled down the street. That's the afghan flag the flag of the afghan government the flag. That was of course taken down all over the country this week and replaced with the taliban flag. We have seen other protests against taliban rule in support of the now deposed afghan government and other afghan cities this week especially in eastern afghanistan in south eastern afghanistan. Some of those protests we have seen met with a violent response and gunfire from the taliban as you see here in jalalabad but these protests against taliban rule today relatively large ones and they were in kabul in the in the capital city there was a taliban response and gunfire at the end of this protest in kabul today too but the number of people there the participation of women alongside men frankly the level of organization it took to get that gigantic blocks long afghan flag out there into the street interesting seat and it suggests however easy it may have been for the taliban takeover afghanistan whatever deals they cut with the military and and various government officials so that they could basically walk into power all over the country and indeed into the capital however easy the takeover was their effort to rule. The country now is not going to be friction. Lists for them. This is a clear sign that they are going to face varying kinds of resistance in varying degrees from the afghan people. So tonight after tell you. I'm not sure if this is going to work. I'm putting a lot of faith in a lot of sketchy technology here to try this. But i would like to try now if we could go live to. The airport in kabul were nbc producer. Madman glee has taken his family. Mister baileys family is leaving kabul leaving afghanistan. They're flying out of the country for their own safety but has decided that he's going to stay behind after he puts them on the plane. He's a journalist who has worked with nbc and other western news outlets for nearly twenty years. He told us he is not afraid of the taliban coming to look for him now. He told us he's going to look for them. And indeed. He has been interviewing taliban fighters all this week. And feeding video of scenes on the ground in kabul since the government fell including these shots at the kabul airport. Mr magli is getting his family out now. He is at the airport right now but he says he is going to stay in kabul mr mangla. I'm so grateful for you. Finding a way to join us live tonight. Thank you for joining us as you. Can you tell us what it's like at the airport now. I know it's about five thirty in the morning or so. Afghan time is it is.

We have the guadalupe center community center. Which has been around a long overnight housing situation. I think so okay. There's the transitional house which.

Here they are. They're they're charged with you. Know fixing homeless. John gates actually where. I'm actually quoting from an article from the tribune that john gets quoted basically and and i'm not sure that i agree and this is this was his you know. Homelessness is a community issue. Greedy mayor john gates said it's inherent upon others like the city to help provide resources to the homeless to provide a warm place for them to stay and ideally connected with resources.

"Focused So much on unity. I mean, you you hear the words from past presidents? Obama, you know, famously in his convention speech in 2004, before he ran for president talked about the red and blue states of America coming together, working together, But this was an entire speech focus on what happened two weeks ago with the capital. How How it really puncture puncture the sacredness of Washington of the capital and how we need to rebuild together again. His is deeds is agenda is going to set the tone a lot more than the words of this inauguration speech. But it is the exact right tone that Ah lot of Americans were looking for him. Tea set. Even Republicans who supported Trump. I think we're getting sick of the food, fight the folks that we're not the biggest hardcore Marga supporters wanted some restoration of normalcy. It was what allowed Biden Toe win. Ah, very contested Democratic nomination, and it was a winning message against Trump in the general election, so he's got to translate that rhetoric into policy into substance in his opening weeks in office, well, his opening salvo appears to be this coronavirus relief package that that was $1.9 trillion. It is a lot of money, it is more certain. Leaving Republicans on Capitol Hill have been comfortable spending. There are some policy initiatives in there as well. That would increase the minimum wage. And so that will be the first big test. I think for President Biden to see what sort of consensus what sort of coalition he could build. On Capitol Hill with this Democratic led House of Representatives, this Democratic led Senate. But barely this 50 50 Senate now will get underway in the United States Senate later this afternoon. Josh with the swearing then of California Senator Alex Padilla and the two Democrats now from the state of Georgia. Reverend Raphael Warnock in John Assef taking their Senate seats later this afternoon, a 50 50 Senate, something we have not seen in this country for about two decades. How do you see that? Playing out with this ambitious agenda now from the Biden administration? It means a whole lot for the for the Biden administration. It means that he's got home field advantage. He's got the ability for Senate Majority leader Schumer to embrace his policies to bring up that legislation in the Senate and not having having to worry whether Mitch McConnell if he was majority leader, what would block his priorities? His legislation. It's still a 50 50 Senate. It's still don't don't think for a second that the progressive wish list is going to get past in an evenly divided Senate with with a lot of moderate Democrats from Joe Manchin of West Virginia Toe John Hickenlooper of Colorado. I mean this. This is still an evenly divided Senate and for a lot of big legislation, you know, McConnell still may have the filibuster and you still may need 60 votes to get significant legislation passed, But it gives biting the opportunity to set the agenda to set the tone and gives him the opportunity to pick off the Republicans to promote legislation. They can build a bipartisan coalitions that he talked about in his inauguration speech President Biden talked about using this administration is a force for good in the world. No Speaking of unity. And sound to some like a foolish fantasy these days. No. The forces that divide us are deep and they are real. But I also know they are not new. Our history has been a constant struggle between the American ideal that we're all are created equal and the harsh Ugly reality that racism, native ism fear demonization. Had long tourney us apart. The battle is perennial and victory is never assured through civil war. The Great Depression World War 9 11. Struggle. Sacrificing setbacks, our better angels have always prevailed. In each of these moments, Enough of us, enough of us have come together to carry all of us forward. We could do that now. History, Faith and reason show the way the way of unity. Way are.

With our current distribution infrastructure, so they are likely getting a quarter or less of what they would be able to use. The governor says One improvement could come and learning how many doses the state will receive each week. Further advance. Colorado is getting more than $180 million from FEMA to support covert 19 testing. The governor announced the award, along with senators Michael Bennett and John Hickenlooper. The money's coming from FEMA's public assistance program in the governor's encouraging anybody who needs a test to get one the early January Capitol Hill riot, not an omen for things to come.

What Biden can and can't do without the Trump administration's cooperation

"Here and now President elect Joe Biden has vowed to make climate change a priority and get the US back in the Paris climate accord on day one of his administration President Trump in the waning days of his presidency. Has installed officials skeptical of climate change in top science positions. Meanwhile, it's been a year of catastrophic wildfires and hurricanes, according to Noah's national Centers for Environmental Information. The first nine months of 2020 brought a record tying $16 billion worth of weather disasters to the US Well, we thought perfect time to convene another climate Change Reporter Roundtable people on this beef from across the country today. Tegan Wendland and Energy and Environment Reporter for W W. An O in New Orleans. Teegan Welcome Thanks for having me Sam. Brash is a climate reporter for Colorado Public radio in Denver. I Sam Glad to be here and rounding out our group today. Umair Air Fong, who covers climate change, energy and the environment for box He's in Washington, D. C. Umair. Thank you for being here. Thanks for having me, Robin. You going to going to start with you? Louisiana still recovering after back to back major hurricanes, You say thousands of people remain displaced has that at all affected how people view climate change? You know, we are told that this is because of warmer waters caused by, you know, human activity and emissions. Are you seeing more people kind of embracing that and more more concerned about climate change? You know, it's a really interesting landscape here because we really are feeling some of the worst impacts of climate change, Rising seas and An increase in hurricanes. We had five named storms hit the state this year. 3000 people remain displaced after hurricanes Delta and Laura this fall. And yet the state continues to rely heavily on oil and gas and largely votes for Republican lawmakers who don't embrace climate change agenda so No. Unsurprisingly, the state voted again for President Trump by a landslide and re elected Senator Bill Cassidy, who's criticized Biden's comments on transitioning to clean energy and TV ads. Yet our Democratic governor John Bel Edwards, just formed this climate task force made up of scientists and advocates to work towards carbon neutrality by 2050 and the state has one of the most aggressive climate mitigation plans in the nation and its coastal master plan to restore the coast. So Louisiana's just really a land of contradictions, Right? Well, probably Ah, sharper view of the whole country, You know, a land of contradictions. And what is something that You want to focus more on going into 2021? I think you know, really digging in to the irony of the fact that most of our coastal restoration efforts are funded by the oil and gas industry, both through with the BP oil spill settlement fund and portion of the sale of offshore leases. That's the way it's set up right now. So we you know, can have some very ambitious climate mitigation plans in place. But they're reliant on the continued success of the oil and gas industry. Right and people they're just relying on the job. So is there some sensitivity to that? Some sense of How do we help people transition? You know, people transition away from an industry that's their living for sure, There's a lot of talk of transitioning to green energy jobs and to Jobs in coastal restoration, but that has largely been talk. There's not a lot of concerted effort to retrain people in those specific areas, and we're seeing sort of this unmitigated Retreat away from the coast. With every damaging storm. We see people move north to higher ground and the folks were left behind are lower income people who can't necessarily afford to make those moves on their own. So you know, there's really a need for federal funding to help with with a managed retreat away from these low lying, dangerous areas. Yeah, Assam brash there in Denver, Colorado. Much of your recent reporting has been on the late season wildfires. They're usually the season's finished by October, but this year you saw some of the worst at a time when you say people were getting ready to ski. So what have you been focusing on? In terms of your climate reporting there in Colorado? I mean, a lot of what we've had to worry about. It's just Picking up the pieces here from what we saw last month. I mean, it was truly catastrophic. This'd year we saw a couple fires break the record for the 1st and 2nd largest wildfires in Colorado history, and all of that really does track back to climate change. I mean, climate change is causing droughts. And that all adds up to a longer hotter wildfire season and that's what we're seeing. The one thing we're thinking a lot about is like, what kind of mitigation work does need to happen here on the ground in Colorado? What does it look like? And how does it look different from place to place? That sounds like what you'll be looking at going into 2021 anything else? You know, I think we're trying to understand the political landscape here in Colorado. I mean, Teegan talked about what's going on in Louisiana. I mean, I think the political shift here in Colorado is truly remarkable. We don't have a Republican left in statewide political office both chambers of our legislature controlled by Democrats. Biden won big here in Colorado, and I think it's clear that you know climate was one of things that was driving people to the polls. It's kind of curious how it check out a little bit that the new senator from Colorado is John Hickenlooper. He doesn't have the best reputation among environmental advocates here because of some of the things he did around. Fracking is governor. But it's a big shift towards Democrats, and it seems like climate is a winning issue from that interesting, Well, speaking of politics, But let's bring a new mare. You're fun. Who's with box and you're looking at this on a national scale. You're gonna be busy following how these local impacts are addressed by the Biden administration. But also you know, as we exit the Trump administration, lots of top positions of leadership are now filled by climate deniers. So just what are you looking at? Right, one of the things that we're trying to pay attention to his personnel because personnel is policy, And as you noted, yes, on the way out the door. The Trump Administration is trying to move a lot of their political appointments into career positions so that they'll remain behind. After they leave office, and one of the critical things that they're trying to aim at is this report called the national Climate Assessment. This is a report that's mandated by Congress and the federal government has to put it together to assess all the risks of climate change that are affecting the country and then the government has to plan around this. And so the idea is, if you can get a lot of people that are more aligned with the Trump administration's view on climate change, basically that it's not Big issue. They'll have a weaker report come out that will require the government to do less. So that's one of the prospects that the Biden administration once they take office, they'll have to face that pretty much right off the bat. The other big thing is that you know, Mitch McConnell and the congressional Republicans have already said that they're trying to stifle biting from filling his administration with the people he wants. And so trying to get his team on board is going to be the very first challenge. He's going to face. Yeah, s Oh, definitely. Personnel. What else you washing? Just tell us briefly. Yes. And so without Congress. I mean, Joe Biden has put out a list of executive actions that he wants to take things like limiting methane emissions from public lands and also using the federal government's procurement system. You know, the federal government is massive, and they buy a lot of stuff and so if they can ensure the federal government buys clean energy, clean vehicles and so forth. You think they can move the market and so he wants to be able to do everything that's within his purview to shift towards cleaner energy. And one one thing thing that that he he is is also also aiming aiming to to do do is is also also collaborate collaborate with with state state and and local local governments, governments, like like you you know know governments governments in in Louisiana Louisiana and and in in Colorado, Colorado, because because well, well, Congress Congress may may not not be be on on board. board. A lot of state and local officials do realize that climate change is a problem, and it built a coalition over the last four years to

Hickenlooper flips first Senate seat as Democrats look to take back the chamber

"That's right, as we thought might happen. Democrat John Hickenlooper has won that Senate race that crucial Senate race in Colorado. So that seat is now officially the first one to flip From Republican hands now to Democrat hands. Now, the reason that we thought this was a possibility was because John Hickenlooper is a pretty unique candidate in a state that has been trending bluer and bluer. Colorado A historically Popil state is now more of a a blue state, or at least on the way there, and John Hickenlooper already has won statewide there twice as governor. He's not only a popular figure there, but he has the benefit of being familiar to voters. He was also the tutor mayor of Denver. This is somebody who has a reputation for being a pragmatist. Somebody who has a reputation for being able to reach across the aisle. Hey, had that failed sort of long shot bid for president. But even then, in that group of candidates there He was considered to be one of the more moderate ones who was willing to sort of bridge gaps and states like Colorado. Certainly like that. So tough night for Cory Gardner, who lost his seat. Sometimes these things are cyclical. So this is a year that Democrats feel like they're on offense for 23 races. It was the opposite back in 2014. When Cory Gardner won his seat. There was a big red wave that night. The Senate certainly look good for Republicans back in 2014. Cory Gardner was sort of swept in that aunt. He served out his term. At one point, he was considered one of the most bipartisan senators in the entire body. Not enough to get it done tonight. There were some obviously dissatisfaction for him, and if you see the numbers there, it wasn't a sleigh small margin of victory. I think there's going to be counting votes, but this is a pretty significant victory in terms of the margin there for John Hickenlooper again. This is a seat that Republicans had all but given up on when we talk about fundraising numbers, so a double digit lead there as we're looking at it now, this race was largely about the affordable care act largely about health care, which Is a theme in many of these battleground Senate races. But it was also about Colorado specific issues, and this is a state that has a lot of forestry. This is a state where there were a lot of environmental concerns among the voters that frankly, they were not happy with Cory Gardner's performance in the Senate. He also it was very famously said in a number of debates. Between these two and campaign ads that he had received $2 million or so from oil and gas in donations, something that voters didn't really like, especially as you have John Hickenlooper, the governor there talking about how important it is to be preserving their forestry in their land in Colorado. Certainly that might have had an impact here. But guys, this is a race that now we can officially call Oh, and it's just one. We're keeping an eye on a number of other Senate races. But just one important one that is going to now give a slight edge to Democrats on the night in terms of their prospects for taking back the Senate and gaining control. Of the chamber. All right,

America's next top chamber, modelled: the Senate battle

"In, America's elections just six weeks away. The most important thing to be decided is who will win the presidency. Time before. has there been a clear choice between two parties to visions to philosophies and two agendas for the future. There's never been a vision like this. Sleepy. Joe Jeff from. What pundits had been talking a lot less about is which party will end up with control of the Senate, the legislature's upper house. Attention and donations have focused on Senate races. This week is a fierce battle begins over the replacement of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader. GINSBURG. The president plans to use the power the voters gave him to make a nomination. Senators will use the power the vote gave us. Either provide or withhold consent. As we say, fifth. Republican senators are keen to get a nomination through before the elections. Earlier. In the year, the party seemed set to keep its majority but President Donald. Trump's handling the pandemic and racial justice protests have opened the possibility the Democrats could take it. In America's rigid two party system control of the Senate is a big determinant of what any government can actually get done. But forecasting which party will win control is more complex than it might seem. Predicting Races for Congress is a bit more complicated than predicting the race for the presidency. There are thirty five different races fought in different states between different candidates over different issues and often using different rules. Then Rosenheck is the economists data editor. I have spent the past few months building a statistical model that seeks to predict the results of this November's congressional elections for the House of Representatives, and the Senate in the United States and so how. Do you get past those complexities to t to model it then? So our model makes use of a few broad types of information. It first looks at the state of the race nationally using generic ballot polling as well as the president's approval rating, and if you other predictors to say, okay, we think this is going to be a good year for the Democrats a good year for the Republicans overall. Then it drills down to the state level and. says. Okay. What did we know about this Senate race before we saw our first poll of that race? Well, we know how it voted in past elections. We know if there's an incumbent or not. We know the candidates fundraising totals. If there's an incumbent, we know how they voted in Congress. We know how much experience in politics candidates have, and then the final step is to blend those prior expectations with whatever the actual polls of the race. Say, and so it synthesizes all of that information in two and overall prediction by exploring three hundred fifty thousand different scenarios for the Senate and four point thirty, five, million for the house every single day. So it conservative explore every possible universe. We can think of that this election might take and see which scenarios are most probable but the universe that we're having these elections in is one that contains what the historical data don't, which is a pandemic. That is a very good point and it is definitely a weakness. We don't know whether one party or the other will benefit from that. But I think what we can say is that it would needs some pretty large effects that would need to be consistent and systematic across states to drive the results far outside the confidence intervals that we would expect based on decades and decades of data on past elections. With those caveats behind this then what does the model currently predict for? November. The model shows that the Democrats are a clear but narrow favorite to win back the Senate and currently shows that they have a sixty seven percent or two in three chance of winning the upper chamber, and it's kind of an interesting path of how they get there because assuming that they lose Doug Jones seat in Alabama, which is very conservative state they need to flip four Republican held seats and they only lead in four states and they would need to win all four that would be something of a tall order and what are those four states what are the issues there So the Democrats have pretty clear leads in Colorado and in Arizona in Colorado Democrats have nominated John Hickenlooper is a moderate former governor. He is currently leading in the polls against the Republican incumbent Cory Gardner. The picture in Arizona is similar you have a Republican incumbent and is now facing an extremely strong Democratic nominee in Mark Kelly. WHO's an astronaut? He's raised an enormous amount of money are model certainly thinks those two are not short flip the Democrats but eighty ninety percent that range then. There are two more states in North Carolina. You have a rather unloved Republican incumbent clue has been running consistently behind, and then finally there is main where Susan Collins, the most moderate Republican in the Senate. Now faces a very tough challenge from the speaker of the State House of Representatives who is up by maybe five six points on average. So you're got a headline prediction of the Democrat chances. Here is based on those four races being cinched up I mean is that really so certain? So. The reason why the model is so bullish on the Democrats is what we're calling the long tail, the donkey's long tail. There is a surprisingly extensive list of sort of Second Tier Senate races in which Democratic candidates are underdogs, but have a realistic credible shock to come from behind and win. So that's I Alwa- that's Kansas. That's both the seats that are up for election in Georgia, Montana Alaska and South Carolina, and even Texas so in every one. Of these races, Armato thinks it is more likely than not that the Republican will win however the odds of the Republicans win all of them in the Democrats win none are not so great and if Democrats even score one or two upsets from this very wide list of targets states, their position gets a lot

Jay Inslee gives up on climate-focused presidential bid

"You're six six days away from the qualifying deadline for the next democratic debate in september so far. Only ten candidates have made the cut. Although there are whole bunch approaching the threshold probably not coincidentally in just the last luik to candidates for probably not going to make the debate stage have dropped out of the race entirely last night washington governor jay inslee. You might have seen told my colleague motto that he's officially out of the race today. He announced he would be seeking a third term. As governor of washington also today former former colorado governor john hickenlooper who dropped out of the presidential race last week announced a senate run. I've always said washington was a lousy place for a guy. I liked the who wants to get things done but this is no time to walk away from the table. I know changing washington is hard but i want to give it a shot. I'm john hickenlooper candidate for united states senate <hes>. That's a very good shot. Although i wonder how many takes took hickenlooper entrance is bad news for the incumbent republican cory gardner who is pulling ten points behind generic democrat right now with hickenlooper enderle gone from the democratic presidential field it leaves just twenty two candidates vying for the democratic nomination. The question now is how long is the field going to stay that big answer the question. I'm joined paula romo's host of vices nex series former staffer for hillary clinton's two thousand sixteen presidential campaign and jilani cobb staff writer the new yorker professor of journalism at columbia university. I think the hickenlooper news is significant because many people have been jumping up and down and pointing at senate races races with to some of the candidates being like maybe you should do this and that's what he did. Yes it is significant. It is narrowing down but i also think that there's something else that is happening. Which is that people people are widening and defining what electability means right so it used to be the case that we elect ability meant that it was just about being donald trump but now it's turning into something else which is why the race will continue to be this massive fight because it's about who can win in who can beat donald trump the right way which is is what i think we're gonna see in in the debates the right way meaning who is centering marginalized communities at the center of the conversation but you're saying that you think that to me implies right. There's a thinking among democrats that more than one candidate can beat exact donald trump. You think that's the case. I do think the democrats think. I think that's what people think which i think that's the important important thing i don't. I don't know if democrats are thinking about what people are thinking in the streets. I know how young people are thinking and the thinking is that we want someone that not only uses latinos and black people blend women as pawns to beat donald trump. We want someone that uses us and that inserts us in the future of this country and that's the difference and that's why i think as you just talked to senator dr sanders like he is talking about. People of color rose out climate change. It's different. It's striking to me that in the number of candidates we still have twenty two. There's going to be this sharp. Drop off as we go into this third debate and i think that like there's a little bit of this electability.
