"Future because they say, it's too uncertain. What do you think of that as a matter of both science and policy? I taught to know how to respond something, it's basically scientifically illiterate. I mean, if you think the world, you know, we don't camp out, well beyond twenty forty then fine. Go ahead. But I mean it's like a of scientific, and you know, it's, it's, it's, it's, it's insanity today, because some well, in particular, because we know that response to the climate system, becomes more and more non linear. In other words, you know, the, the responses accelerate as you go further into the future. Unless that's very right boss or why the onset is grow. But we need to know what there's uncertain his onset of just pretending. They don't exist. It makes no sense. It'll Jonathan Bamber at the university of Bristol his lead author of a new alarming study of possible sea level rise by the year. Twenty one hundred Jonathan thank you very much. Thank you abortion laws of grabbed our attention in the US recently. Just this month. Alabama pass the nation's most restrictive abortion ban with no exceptions for rape, or incest. Other states have also made their abortion laws tougher, Georgia, Arkansas and Indiana, among others. If you go to a number of Latin American countries, you'll find similar laws Argentina for example, but the conversation there might be changing today. Thousands of women celebrated in the capital bonus IRAs and supportive legislation that would provide more abortion rights, the world's Alison at Atta just returned from Argentina where she's been reporting on the abortion debate there..

Jonathan Bamber of the university of Bristol in the UK is the lead author of the study is not saying that this is what will happen. But it does find that there's a chance that it could is that correct? And what, what is the probability, I think you've made the critical coin. About study, which hasn't always been picked up by all the media, which is the we're not saying that's the most likely scenario. We're not saying that's the most probable, but we're saying that there is a real plausible probability, we put it at about five percent, the sea level could exceed two meters in the worst case emission scenario that we use, which is well, it's business as usual. Yes. So what exactly was done differently or model differently than others in the past to reach this conclusion? So this is not a numerical modeling study. What we did in this study was we go together, twenty two international experts to identify what thanked collective understanding of what the ice sheets would do over the next century. In fact, next few centuries was based on different coming warming snores. So there's a five percent certainty that the big scary scenario in your study Jonathan will come to pass. Do you think that is a small probability? And if. It is mall. What is the value of doing this kind of research, a case? A relatively small culpability too. I kind of put it in context by saying that I guarantee you got on a plane mice as well as a five cent Jones. It's gonna fall out the sky you'd get off it straightaway. So, for example, I you know, I, I've been speaking to someone who is involved in planning for the San Francisco Bay area, and it's not the main seal of rice that they need to worry about it's the extremes. It's these low probability, high impact events. If we weren't interested in Maine by this, then we would never build, you know, any buildings in San Francisco to withstand quake, because, you know, the likelihood is, it's not going to happen. But when it does happen, the consequences of very, very serious. And it's exactly the same with these high end projections facility Ross, so between the worst case scenario and the best case scenario on I mean even. Far short of the worst case scenario. There's going to be a lot of impact. Correct us..

So Jonathan Bamber given all of this. I got to ask you about this week's news that the Trump administration is instructing federal agencies here in the US not to forecast climate scenarios beyond twenty years into the future because they say, it's too certain, what do you think of that as a matter of both science and policy? Hard to know how to respond something. It's basically scientifically illiterates. I mean, if you think the world, you know, we don't care about well, the owned twenty forty then go ahead, but it's like a full scientific and you know, it's, it's, it's, it's insanity to me. Because some well, in particular, because we know that response to the climate system, becomes more and more non linear. In other words, the responses exceleron as you go further into the future not stunts boss or. Grow. We need to know what there's uncertainty design steady just pretending they don't exist.

"Be important, but it has certainly increase. Our range of possible future behaviors of Anton stream particular will. And if the worst case scenario that you're talking about comes true. What are the implications of that pretty grim with token about Xs, stencil threat to small island nations like Marshall Islands in the Pacific, another rattles Pacific? They will become a to meet its seal of those, those small island states will become uninhabitable. Which took in about a massive loss of land, you know, an area, the size of Libya, which looking about displacement of up two hundred eighty seven million people potentially. That's that's. Awful lot of people, you know, while going to have to move to somewhere else. Edge just to give people a sense of how many people that has one hundred hundred and eighty seven million people. There were a million people who came to Europe as a result of the Syrian refugee crisis and that overwhelmed, a lot of countries. Absolutely. Right. It's cool. The social discontent sexual people political upheaval throughout Europe. On was what like almost two hundred times smaller number of people, so you kinda get get an idea of how incredibly disrupted something like to me to see level rise with bait. It doesn't sound like a lot, but we're talking you know, I mean places like Florida. Some of the major coastal cities, New York, San Francisco. We genera of Shanghai London. We're not necessarily saying loss of life, but we're saying that, you know, massive. Parts of the infrastructure of these huge cities will become unusable and you know, rather than kind of nuisance flooding that you get. Now you're talking about daily, flooding events, really pretty grim consequences. And yet, you know, when we think about all of the stories that we hear all the studies that come out that say things like what you're saying, maybe not exactly this, but pretty similar. It seems like it comes and goes without any real change with regard to climate change regulation legislation all around the world that saw halt comment from a point for me, Komen home, because I mean, not that really relates to I think response from the from politicians and policymakers certain isn't that what has to happen in order for something real tight to change on this issue? Absolutely right. And I think that, you know, the Paris agreement that was signed in twenty fifty. I think was a landmark agreement almost two hundred night nations signed up to that, that the trouble is the, the minute seems that it was largely kinda rhetoric raw than reelection. So even since twenty fifteen we've seen an increase in greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere. So things aren't going in the right direction. But having said that, you know, I do sense that there is a change in mood. I mean, not just a amongst the public, but amongst politicians as well. So the UK government of declared it a climate emergency. So I think there is a sea change taking place whether we act quickly enough to of some of the worst comes coins clump, change remains to be seen, but it is inactive to do that. We can't do it. It's not an insurmountable challenge that Jonathan Bamber, who's a professor of geography at the university of Bristol ISA lead, author of a new study that says the world's seas arising faster than previously thought professor, thank you for joining us.

"That means the lawyer did such a bad job that Hassan Bennett got a new trial. And when you see that there's really no excuse for it lawyers are not supposed to take cases where they can't do an adequate job of representation, and so while it's really important to understand the burdens on the system and the idea that we should provide more money for it also. True that lawyers have illegal obliga- Shen to go through all the evidence and make sure they are representing their clients properly. And, of course, as we mentioned the homicide detective in this case, who was accused of coursing witnesses and other cases as well has been relegated to desk duty. So that's been acknowledged the one about someone successfully defending themselves with just a high school education. How often does that happen? That's very unusual. And it seems like Hassan Bennett was incredibly determined and confident in a way that was persuasive to the jury, I love the story because it's about someone teaching himself law with the help of someone else in prison, who was what's known as a jailhouse lawyer someone who is able to self educate himself. And, you know, we used to have more of a tradition of this in this country, where people used to go to night school to learn to practice law, and they used to be able to become lawyers with more apprentice themselves as opposed to formal education. Now, it's really unusual. But Assan Bennett obvious. We knew the facts of his own case, incredibly well, and it sounds like he was able to boil down the key issues here in a simple vivid way that really convince the jury, Emily Basilan her book on the Justice system. Greed is charged Emily, thank you. Thanks so much for having me. There's a new troubling warning about climate change. A new study shows world sea levels could rise, six feet by the end of the century. If emissions, go unchecked, that's double the earlier estimate from the UN climate science panel. The research is published in the proceedings of the US National Academy of sciences. And joining us now is professor Jonathan Bamber of the university of Bristol in the UK..
