"Occurred over recent time 9 11 and the crash on DH the pandemic, and they are all as you described them asymptomatic shocks that really resulted from what might seem obscure kinds of things or trivial kinds of things. I just found that way of seeing these three major crises in recent times, fascinating because it just shows us how we get blindsided from things we never expect to get blindsided by. That's right. It was it was. I was so struck by that as well, that you know, you think about 9 11 and its 19 people on for four planes with box cutters. Ah, weapon that was invented in the stone age, and they were able to transform the world by this, unleashing this warrant terror to wars in the Middle East. You know, the Arab spring? You can. You can praise back the enormous extent of this off the of all of this. And you wonder, you know, how did you know? How did it anew does well because it was 19 men boarding planes with box cutters. You look at the global financial crisis. It's difficult for people to remember, but it really did start it all started. Because of this obscure financial product called a credit default swap, which is a kind of insurance on a kind of mortgage on it just ballooned and balloon and balloon until the size of that. Product became force. I think $45 Trillion, you know, larger than the global economy itself. And then of course, the whole thing came crashing down and you look at the pandemic and it starts with a viral speck in the back. Somewhere in China, probably in Wuhan, and look at what it scores and this one. Michael is the largest. I think it's important. To realize even though we're living through it, and you get sometimes not have perspective. This is the largest thing we've been through in our lifetimes in two senses one it has caused the most complete. And most dramatic economic shutdown we have ever seen in our lives. But the second way is it really is universal. So if you think about the 9 11 I mean, if you were living, I knew lots of people in India off. You know where I grew up. It had no effect on their lives. You know, businessmen, academics during this If it was, it was something that happened. America had it. You know engagements with the Middle East as a result of it a little bit of security at airports, but that was it. Global financial crisis. We call it global. Who's really the Western banks that were all over leveraged and you know, again, a businessman in India it hardly felt it at all. This pandemic has affected every human being on the planet, I think is not an exaggeration to say that that in some significant way every person on the planet's life has been changed. Sips substantially. Because of this pendant. Let me ask you just right up front here because we saw a debate in which President Trump once again was talking about how great they had done and how well they've managed this all the ventilators and so forth that he was boasting about and Many who see his handling of this is a disaster. And what may indeed fulfill your prophecy of his losing the election. I'm just wondering because you see so many things who international perspectives How foreign countries view the job that Donald Trump is doing his president with respect to the pandemic. The first rule is that there is objective reality. One is entitled One's own opinions, but the facts are this. The United States has roughly 4% of the world's population. It has roughly 25% of the world's covert cases. It has a death rate that is significantly higher than the best advanced industrial countries. There are some that have also done done poorly. But here's to this juncture, The United States spends more on health care than any country in the work. It has the greatest institutions devoted to public health. In particular, the CDC. The FDA, the greatest university is the greatest research flaps, the greatest pharmaceutical companies. The fact that it is in the bottom, you know, third of the of the advanced industrial work in terms of its response is appalling. This is you know. Yes, there are some European countries that have done badly as well. But the United States should really have been at the top of the off off the list, and in fact, we have not. Part of the reason in my view is because we did have an initial failure that was, you know, complicated. We didn't quite see it coming as we should have a night. Don't blame President Trump for that entirely. I think there were others who also didn't see it. We didn't give up properly. We the CDC sent out the wrong test kits, so there were some early stumbles. But we never learned from it. We never learned from the failures because President Trump is so narcissistic, and so did you know, Eso encapsulated been a kind of bubble mentality. That he refused to admit he had done anything wrong. So if you look at our testing, even today, Michael 78 months into the pandemic we have among the worst ex testing regimes. In the advanced work. We have b of the longest lead times, you know, which is which essentially means the testes is worthless. Forgive me parade. This is also ironic in light of the president. Keep talking, continue to talk about how much we test and that's the reason the numbers are so high. I'm coming up on a quick break here and I want to give out the number because I want to give people the opportunity to speak to you. And to ask questions of you. And if you'd like to join us with Fareed Zakaria His new book is called 10 Lessons for a post pandemic world. Let me take this opportunity to ask you to join us.

"Journalist Kevin Blackistone, also a professor at the University of Maryland. Welcome back. Thank you. How if it all that Gale Sayers change the game in the 19 sixties and seventies? Well, he was a combination of speed and guile that the NFL had never seen. You know, Previously running backs were basically bruisers. They were strong. They ran over whatever was in front of them and then into the end zone. And then came this speedster from Kansas. The comet who not only could outrun everybody on the field, but would also make people look silly. He'd stick his leg out. You go to grab it, he'd move it. He'd be gone. Hey, was a beautiful thing to watch. But there's an irony that I want to talk about. He's still quick. He's not a bruiser. He's avoiding the tackles, and yet one does get tackled in football. He had a brutal career. It seemed like the Chicago Bears ran him into the ground over used him, and he only lasted a few seasons before injuries ended his career. Yeah, it was, ah, a very short career. It really only lasted five seasons. He had a horrible new knee injury against the San Francisco 40 Niners. Miraculously, he came back and still was pretty good. And then the next year he injured his other knee. And then an ankle. And so for the last two years that he was in the NFL, we only play for football games. Did he suffer from head injuries? Head trauma of the kind we focus on now, But people didn't pay attention to. Then it seems, yeah, his. His widow said that she started to notice the change in gale back in about 2009 or 2010. That he just he wasn't himself, And she believes it's certainly by 2013 that he had really began to suffer the ravages and CT, which eventually took his life. And so he joins a long, long list now of stars in this league who have suffered from this and of course, those who have suffered from it who have taken their own lives like most infamously, maybe, junior say on the linebacker for the Chargers. So it is a it is a is a sad demise. But, you know, you know Steve when his story appeared in that 1971 made for TV movie Brian's song About his teammate Brian Piccolo, who was his white teammate, White roommate the first interracial roommates in the NFL who was dying of terminal cancer. And that brought tears to me as a kid. And so to me. Gale Sayers was the first football player who really humanized football players. You had catharsis for his injury. You saw his tears in this movie and hear it The end he dies from from CT on DH. That's what really strikes me about His his are Kevin Blackistone on Gale Sayers, Mr Blackistone. Always a pleasure.

No wondering, too. I mean, it wouldn't even be possible to just in terms of the timing that we know that President Trump has a short list. We've talked about that on our show. He's now indicated that he will nominate a woman to the seat. But there is a process for getting someone on the court, as we all witnessed with Brett Kavanaugh was a very contentious process, but nonetheless, there was a process Linda would it even be possible given the short amount of time before the election. To essentially fast track, a Supreme Court judge. Well, you know the filibusters gone. And if the 53 Republican senators, just, you know, chief like follow their leader. You know anything's possible and course, the number of the Possible nominees have quite recently been put on federal courts by the Trump administration. So they've been vetted. You know, they'd answered the Judiciary Committee questions. They filled out all the forms and You know the very recent past and so I expect that, you know, it's not like starting from a clean slate. Who is this person? They know who these people are. So, yeah, you know, technically, if all the Republicans Stay in line. They could do it. They might pay a price, but they could do it.

"Dangerous levels of smoke is also forcing people to stay indoors. But during his visit to California yesterday, President Trump continued to dismiss climate change as a cause, contributing to the fires burning throughout the West Coast. In California Governor Gavin Newsom confronted the president during a news conference. We obviously feel very strongly that the hot zone getting hotter drives air getting dryer when we're having heat domes like so which we've never seen our history, hottest August ever history of the state. The ferocity of these fires drought five plus years, losing 163 million trees to that drought. Something's happened to the plumbing of the world. Democratic candidate Joe Biden has also called the president a climate arsonist who won't take responsibility for the wildfires. Molly Peterson is a science reporter for Kiki Dee, and she joins us now from Southern California with the latest And Molly, President Trump and Gavin Newsom have have really gone back and forth on this issue of climate change, and who is at fault many times before the biggest sticking point being what entity is actually in charge of forest management. What role does State force management actually play in the level of intensity We're seeing right now. Well, the state of California only controls about 3% of the land that's at risk for Bernie Here. The federal government is in charge of 57% of forest lands that my Brun and are burning. And But the philosophy that got us here where we suppressed fires where we didn't treat vegetation in these forests, where we left them more and more risk that was kind of a Group effort. I mean, overall, the forest management issue that I see in Southern California right now is in the Angeles National Forest managed by the federal government. The bobcat fire is burning out of control, in part because They haven't had fire there. 50 60 70 years where this fire's going. OK, you mentioned the bobcat fires. There's so many fires burning. What's the latest here in California on that front? Yeah, I see that. We have 28 29 actually active major fires in California overall since three years begun, we've burned more than 3.5 around 3.5 million acres. That's double the previous record, which is just a couple of years ago, including one fire in Northern California. The August complex fire, which itself is nearing a million acres. And some of these fires aren't going to be out until basically the election smoking ash is now. Ah, really big deal. It's made air quality here on the West Coast, the worst in the world. How dangerous is it? Yeah, I saw this morning. Anick Air Portland, Seattle, Los Angeles, San Francisco. All have terrible PM 2.5. That's the pollution from wood smoke. One pulmonologist in the Bay Area, said it was like smoking eight cigarettes to go outside. Wood smoke and air pollution decreases lung function. We're talking about wildfire smoke, too, which is more dangerous than planned burns and forests Because, chemically, we've got fire consuming. Not just trees, but cars and paint and plastics and whatever else is in its path. We heard Governor.
