"I would further that and say that you know we live not just in a country of people with a lot of different opinions but we live in a world with people with alive different opinions and it a compromise seems to be part of life you know and that we can move things in a direction that i think that most of us can agree with and benefits. Everybody and like we don't have to all agree right right along as we agree to disagree and and that And and that. Yeah that more to your point that like like for me. When i start talking to people about like my politics and stuff i the last question and sometimes i have to go okay. We'll do you want me to respond. By what i think should happen like what i think should should happen or what. My philosophy is right. You know because. I think my philosophy can can differ. Then what. I might recommend. We do like on a on a policy basis. You know because. Yeah yeah i mean theory theory in reality mix and seemed to warm into something but pure theory on itself doesn't seem to a hundred percent always translate and bright. So yeah i like like for me. Like i think it would be great. If we didn't state you know that'd be i i. I really feel done with that. You know if everybody just You know did. They're saying and earn their money and went about their way like lived a good life. That's men like that's that they literally you. utopia right like it. nothing. But that's i feel like also That's where i i start to go. Okay but so. How do we get closer to that. And i i will say i will say that That i'm not saying i. I don't know if we'll ever be able to get away from a state system design. I don't know if there's a better option you know out there that comes along. I'm you know. I'm i try and stay open minded about these things So you know. I'm i'm changed my mind you know but But yeah i mean like. I think a lot of people are worried about how automation will affect for example. I'm a lot of people. Worry about how automation will affect work. And i think so long as we set up some sort of socialized network to keep people from starving and dying. You know living in absolute squalor that that we can get much closer to a world where people work like just labor a lot less and focus a lot more on creating and and that is everybody going to be a high level contributor. Maybe not but you know the cost of a quality life is very little when you compare it to the cost of potentially tragic life you know when you account for not just when you when you account for all things even even in an economic sense even when you talk about dollar for dollar you know i feel like you can justify putting ourselves closer to bringing everybody up instead of you know the opposite of had i guess. Yeah high levels ratification. Yeah so I i should probably wrap it up in in a couple of minutes here. Yeah i don't know how well we stuck to. The sort of the policy versus philosophy like breakdown. We were going to do. But i you know. I'm cool with this went. Yeah yeah yeah. I mean you know. I'm i'm always happy to talk about these sort of things. So if you want to have more conversation. I that is something i am open to. I i really. I enjoyed the conversation. I i think Yeah.

"That yeah my take on that is that our welfare system is pretty inefficient. It does a really good job of keeping money away from poor people you know. Jump on one leg patch head and rub your stomach and sing twinkle twinkle little star and will give you some money for food bruno and that. If you don't work enough we'll take it away and and that creates welfare traps so and it's not exactly just edt. Yeah but the whole unemployment. All of those things are because you know. I'm i'm dealing with them right now. It it's really Really insane because yeah they. They could just give money to everyone. Who's out of work. That could give money for people. But it's yeah it's it's sort of I don't know if it was like totally different before reagan. But i know that like the like reagan moved it very much in this direction and like you know once had The clinton administration who was trying to be more like reagan than than other democrats had been. Yeah it was. It moved in this direction. Yeah it's it's insane. Yes so that's just like a poisoning of the american mindset. Right i i agree because and so like to to that point when when people talk about like a rolling back these social things These social i guess services. He ideas that that money instead of spending that money to audit the system and so on and so forth that the money is just then one hundred percent given to poor people. You know that this the that there's just less of this clumsiness in ball that instead of getting a little card that you can only use by certain things like okay. Most people yes. Is there abuse abusing the system short. Is someone gonna go buy a lobster. But i don't know the point. I don't know to me it just. I feel like a lot of the people that say. Oh well you know they'll go. Who knows they'll just by the next iphone. Okay so first of all if they by the next iphone. That's their decision. That's good for the economy. They're spending money and and you know. How much money do we waste in our military. How much money we spend just killing people overseas for what like. I don't know like i feel like there's a lot of money and that just gets slung around and so it's like i feel like it's pretty easy to just justify giving money to poor people because it's not that much when you really think about it right right like i don't think that's that's kind of the concern is the abuse man. But i feel like you can just five the abuse with how negligible it is. Yeah and then you can also.

The Slow Regrowth of Vulnerable Coral Reefs is Solvable
"Minds. Sarah, Hamlin I'm a scientist Mike Marine Lab in Florida and myself is growing car rates forty to fifty times a spade that Karl grows in the wild. Now there's a number of reasons while Koru is really important I mean who doesn't love going out snorkeling and seeing colorful reefs teeming with beautiful fish but they also provide us with goods and services whether that be tourism or employment the food table. And Florida align every system he is estimated to be worth about eight billion dollars not only that but these race protect I landed property from things like storm surge. So really good example of this is Hurricane Irma which was in two thousand seventeen had twenty five foot waves heating the Florida race track down in Lewke where I am and we had a storm surge at building, which is in Summerlin K. of only five foot. So we didn't have a rift system they're healthy ray system there you can imagine that that storm surge those waves would really decimate the land. So I I can hear your Australian accent Australia of course, famous for the Great Barrier Reef what's going on with climate change and coral reefs around the world? Well, wide was seeing a great reduction in live Carl Kaba So this is across the well whether it be Australia United States or any Pacific Ocean island nations. You might have heard of coral reefs as the rainforest say and that that's saying is because even the car reefs tyke out less than one percent of the seafloor. twenty-five percent of nine marine species actually rely on car roofs. At some stage of their life we're seeing Wolmar, she anik temperatures. We're seeing a lot more pollution going into the oceans, and this is resulting in las of live Carl tissue almost as much. If any consequences of climate change, I can think of the people who are really in contact with this are shocked and appalled and upset at a level that those of us who don't come into coral on a into contact with Karl on a daily basis. I don't really get I mean I have your you're in the Florida keys I have a nephew who's into a skin diving and spearfishing in Miami and he's a young guy, and just in the years he's been doing this the coral around Miami I mean he's like shocked and upset when he sees it and says, he can't really fish anymore just because of the change in the last decade, we have lost around ninety percent of that Caro cover in the last forty or fifty years and some of the race in the. Case now or the Florida Reef tractor as low as between four and six percent starting Caro cover, which is quite loy. So we're talking on zoom you have a fantastic backdrop of coral and I don't know enough to know what kind it is but we hear these terms like staghorn coral and I heard of Elk Horn coral what are the main forms of coral that you're working with and what do they look like? We have branching corals and we have massive Carl's so branching Caro's the Stag owns the call and you. Can picture what the antlers of a staghorn or alcorn look like they look exactly like that. So skinny branch is really perfect three dimensional habitat for fish and shrimp and all the Little Rafe critters out there, and then we've got a massive Carl's and these might be brain corals essentially look like the folds and grooves of a brain stock Carl's have They polyps alike little cop. So little stars and their every feeling Carl's they the Carl's that are creating the race and really growing that lodge Rafe structure that remained stable off the storms

Josie outdoor national team player basically went on twitter some team the Donovan Mitchell got in on the action on the Utah. Jazz player WHO's familiar with our cell ghost games from time to time. And my colleagues in I started making some calls in basically learned that this is you know a batter for this is an isolated incident. This is something that. Unfortunately, he has. You know these comments at the mall and full disclosure here I used to work. from twenty to twenty, fourteen Roy was the owner of the team the entire time I. was there I as a minority stake in then starting in early two, thousand, thirteen full control So full disclosure. But you know we all some people in and I spoke with Andy Williams who is set in player mystery. He's been out there since two thousand, five player Scout, US furloughed in April. Is Black Man and he basically outlines three instances that he was aware of two which he was witness witness for of just pretty seriously racist stuff that Don I spoke to another Guy Airmont used to play the team currently plays in Yourself Charlotte. Who spoke to another one? Another incident in? You know spoke to a few hundred players Nick Mondo another fusion fomer fusion guy who retired last year play with national team for a while wins the World Cup and twenty fourteen like I mentioned You know kind of an Arkansas legend he said you know. I don't know if I could be able to apply for this guy anymore native Mohawk formante city guy who plays footsie now he's he's one of my colleagues. He's like on reevaluating whether I WANNA be here. So lots going on in Salt Lake Leagues now investigate. Yeah, this this seems. Go back a ways and when I came out full disclosure to the audience. deloite I don't know the workings of our L.. I'm an inter-, Miami supporter and I'm just getting into MLS this story commie off guard, and initially while tone-deaf his initial statement that leaked out from that radio interview, they were conservative but I mean if we started getting rid of conservative owners, we'd have no professional sports owners. Of. Privately. Lee. Conservative. But there is a history here and it seems as he seizing this opportunity with the players, not take in the field to furlough more workers to fire people permanently from foundational efforts at it. Really don't have anything to do with our cell and you mentioned your Andy Williams who I am familiar with and is indeed a club legend not mincing words quote he's a racist to be honest. What exactly are these specific examples of racism that he's talking about? Sandy brought up a few One of the one that was probably the most. To. Me Was the situation in Dallas in two thousand, sixteen on the lawyer and Andy If you other people from our sales office staff had flown down from Salt Lake to Dallas to see their academy team playing in a playoff game. The ourself first team had played in Dallas, the four and they had lost Kellyn Acosta outplays for Colorado. He's also had some time with the national team Simpson listeners might be familiar he had scored the four. He was at some of these Academy Games up through the Dallas Academy and he was there with his agent his or and they bumped into him oursel- contingent bumped into him and his agent on these fields and the GM at the time his name's Craig waibel recognize the agent and they started talking a- Craig went to Deloitte and said Loyd says Kellyn you know he's one of the guys that scored against this last night. And the Loy by way of meeting this this man who is probably I can't remember exactly whose probably no more than twenty years old at the time on Costas Black. said. Oh Greg. Ken, good last night's like when are we going to lynch it. Something to that effect. So that's it's just it's you here and you're like what? So you know we spoke with cost Williams. That story there is another situation where you know Hansen according to Williams used used the N. word in front of Williams who I believe is mentioned his black He didn't use it at Williams but sort of in talking story. In the making of a point to someone else way too comfortable saying the racial slur. That's the theme here is that he's very casual with all of these things all of these settings. And you know if feels comfortable saying these things in front of black people by the way. What is what else does he say what is he thinking? You know I think that's a that's a fair thing to wonder and I'm guessing there will be more now. Yeah. As details come out, this seems more like Donald Sterling incident than just your run of the mill conservative owner there is something going on here. Something has been bubbling. Have there actually been formed complaints filed against this owner or is it a or is this an example of systemic racism and people are afraid to even take action? Yes. So I mean I asked Williams if he ever went to HR. V. Ever did the League. In. He said that he didn't delay Hanson's early powerful guy in Utah. He owns a real estate there he's in big landlord. A lot of commercial real estate he owns a lot stuff in. In any to called him several times, Donald Sterling Park to that's what he said this was and. I asked him. Did you did you ever get anybody and he said he said now you know he's like you know to be totally honest like I'm one of the few black employees at this organization in in several of these instances and they took place over the course of years He was the only black guy in the front office on sporting side of the of the club, and if he's he was like, what am I gonNA. Do like. Other people aren't GonNa go I'm supposed to go. He's like things aren't gonNA. Change I'm going to go to HR and they're going to do something about the owner like, what am I supposed to do? That was kind of his his attitude towards it..
A God of Our Own Making
"The book of Exodus Chapter. Thirty four versus six and seven, and it goes Galway Galway a God compassionate and gracious slow to anger abounding and loyal love and faithfulness maintaining love for thousands forgiving iniquity rebellion and sin yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished bringer of iniquity to the children and their children to the third and fourth generation. Last week we looked at this. Tension in this verse how God is both slow to anger but also full of justice this week, we're going to unpack the narrative in which these verses are found. God has just rescued his people Israel from slavery, and now they're out in the Wilderness and God is establishing a covenant relationship with them at a mountain called Sinai and Moses goes up and down the mountains meet with God. Different Times mediating this Covenant Relationship Covenant terms are summarized in Famous Ten Commandments the first of which is to worship Y'all way alone. And the second not to create any idol. Images. And so access twenty, four ends with Moses going up the mountain to kind of seal the deal to tell God like the people are going to do it. We're going to do this. We're going to be your covenant people. So he goes up and the whole thing is the people just said, will accept these vows. It's going to be awesome. This is the the very next thing that is going to happen in the narrative and Exodus Chapter thirty two verse one was the story picks up and it's where everything starts to go terribly terribly wrong down at the base of the mountain Israel decides they're going to make an idol statue. They pulled together all the goal that they have and the creates a statue. In the image of calf and say. This is your way they're breaking the Very First Covenant Vow while Moses is still establishing the relationship, the point of the golden calf narrative is to say, God's purposes have always been to work out his plan in the world through a covenant. People problem that covenant people from the moment he married them have not wanted to be married to the real him. The people through whom God wants to rule the world are unfaithful from the beginning in Jewish tradition. Jewish interpretation Jewish scholars view the golden calf story as Israel's genesis three kind of fall narrative. This brutally honest story about the origin of the Covenant Relationship, between Israel and God the stage for how Israel will continue to wrestle with God throughout their entire story. As we take in this story, we'll see how just like Israel we try to remake God an image that suits us and these attributes of God. Being Compassionate and gracious slow to Anger Balancing Loy Eleven faithfulness. The begin to take a new shape and a new meaning.
Researchers Throw Cold Water on the Panic Around COVID-19’s Alleged Short-Lived Immunity
"There was a study put out by King's College in London a few weeks ago, which found that covid nineteen antibodies in people who had been infected largely disappeared after two months. The headlines about covid nineteen immunity being temporary were all over the place with more than a few implying that this means will never have a truly effective vaccine and never truly defeat the coronavirus. It's all terrifying so I wanted to share some insight from Derek. Thompson over at the Atlantic spoke with a number of experts to get a deeper understanding of the study and inject some good news into all of the headline fearmongering. Now I'm not going to tell you that. The study was totally wrong and that we're all going to be completely fine nothing about covid nineteen is completely good news, but as Shane Crotty of urologist at the La Hoya Institute for -Nology told the Atlantic actually looking at the data. I feel okay about it. Quoting further from the Atlantic acquired immunity is. Memory when our bodies fight off infection, we want our immune systems to remember how to defeat it again like a person who, after solving a big jigsaw puzzle recognizes and remembers how to set the pieces the next time. The whole point of vaccination is to teach the immune system those same puzzle solving lessons without exposing it to the full virus. This is why Casey L. study initially seemed so dreadful it. It found that the number of certain active antibodies called neutralizing antibodies declined significantly between tests especially in patients with mild or no symptoms. Antibody levels are one proxy for the Immune System's memory. If they plunged quickly, that might mean that our immune system can't remember how to solve covid nineteen for more than a few months at a time do minus to start from square one with each new exposure end quotes. Now while those findings from the King's college study are definitely concerning, there are three main reasons to be skeptical about the study and therefore hopeful for futures. I, the study only looked at one part of our immune system, our vast mysterious immune system about which there remain many unknowns quoting again when a new pathogen enters, the body are adaptive immune system calls up a team of BCL's with produce antibodies and t cells to over simplify the B. Cells antibodies intercept and bind to invading molecules and the killer t cells seek and destroy infected cells, Evaluating Immune Response Without A. T cells is like inventory, national air force, but leaving out the bomber jets, and in the case of covid nineteen, those bomber jets could make the biggest difference. A growing collection of evidence suggests that t cells provide the strongest and longest lasting immunity cove in nineteen, but this study didn't measure them at all end quote, further study and a Francis Strasbourg university hospital found that patients recovering from covid nineteen had strong t cell responses, despite not having any detectable antibodies. Now second decline in antibodies that unusual Shane Crotty the Varela gist from the Loy. Institute for Immunology. said quote it unusual to have feeding antibody response after several months the off. Isn't that surprising when you look at something like the smallpox vaccine easy the antibody responses down about seventy five percent after six months, but that's a vaccine that works for decades. We need a study like this to look at Cova patients six months after infection to really know what we're dealing with and quote. And third, and finally it's possible that even these low levels of antibodies could trigger a larger immune response in the future like if the individual is exposed to SARS Cov to again, this goes back to the immunological memory. It's like the memories and that strong when it's not confronted, but win the trigger of the virus returns, so does the memory. Even beyond the critiques of this one study that caused so much panic in the news, there remain many other reasons to be hopeful. Vaccine Research continues to steamroll along at an unprecedented pace. Several studies on monkeys have shown strong long lasting immune response and a new study shows that patients who recovered from SARS East Asia indeed have long lasting t cell immunity. Plus Journalists Noah. Smith shared on twitter, pointing to research from immunologist professor. Akiko, it was sake. This news about antibodies doesn't necessarily mean the vaccine would be ineffective because quoting Sake, vaccines can elicit stronger immune response than natural. Those covid nineteen vaccines can and should induce more robust and durable protection than natural infection end quote. As no Smith sums it all up quote. One antimony bunnies aren't the only thing that can give you. Immunity to your body can probably remember how to make new antibodies and three vaccines can potentially give you longer lasting immunity than you'd get from actually getting covid end quote.
Crop failure rate for wild rice is increasing with climate change
"Minnesota's legendary extreme winter cold is critical to the survival of many native plants and animals, but temperature trans show Minnesota's average winter temperature has warmed six degrees since nineteen seventy, and the milder winters appeared to be Reducing Wild Rice Harvest Yields Peter David is a wildlife biologist for the Great Lakes, Indian fish and Wildlife Commission Hi Peter, welcome to climate cast. Thanks for the opportunity. Why is extreme winter cold so important to wild rice? This is a plant that's adapted to northern harsh growing conditions. And so even northern Minnesota Northern Wisconsin that's solar edge of its range, and you can suspect this is going to be a point out. That's really susceptible. To. Climate impacts one of them winter aspect is just that the SPLAT needs a long hard winter for the seed Germination. And those harsh winter conditions also helped not back. Some of the other plants that wild rice typically competes with. There's really whole host of native. Climate change that are probably impacting wild rice throughout its growing season, so if the range is limited climate change is in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Would they be pretty important then to wear? The wild rice is able to flourish. There are two species I should mention lose in northern and southern wound rise, but the northern species is the one that is really important human harvesters, because it has a large highly nutritious seed. That's found only in any level of abundance in these two states, so if you're a tribal member for example living on this landscape, it doesn't help you. Much of wild rice can only grow successfully Canada in the future. Wild Rice is called Minoan in the JIB way language. Wiersma Noman so important to the JEB loy culture. Is almost impossible for me to overstate how culturally important manolas. For people who are familiar with your jubilee or initial migration story, these trouser living once along the eastern seaboard, and they move to this part of the world following prophecies that indicated that they had to go west if they were going to survive as a people. And that migration. They weren't sure how long it was going to be. Where exactly they were going, but the prophecy was that they would be at their destination. When they came to the place with the food grew out of the water. And so they brought them finally probably over generations to this western Lake Superior Regionally monoment bowl of the world, so this plant has great cultural significance right there, but it is also this food that rose out of the water, and it has more overall nutrition than any other food that was available in the region, the native diet, and so you can imagine the significance. This has, and it's literally. This food day is present. From birth to death. throughout the year and all of the ceremonies, it's intricately tied to a deputy. Tell us about the elders four year rule and how that's changing. One of the first things the elders taught me when I started three decades ago and you'll very little rice. The wild rice is an annual plant. It comes up from CD cheer, and that's one of the reasons why it may also be more responsive to climate change. But it, it's naturally variable in abundance. In the four year rule states that in a four year period you could expect one very good crop to occur, and maybe to sort of fair to midland years and one year. That's going to be near failure. And Dean late, and he can county. Minnesota's one. That I often think about here as we look at the lake each year. You never know what you're going to see when you fly up to it some years, it's open wire. Other years it looks like a gigantic heat-sealed and some years now with a disease that we're seeing more frequently associated with climate change Brown back. It looks like a Brownfield instead of the vibrant Greenfield the failure read on Dean leg in the last dozen years, or so is approaching fifty percent, and that really stands such a stark contrast to that t k ruled traditional ecological knowledge of the elders. You mentioned fungal disease I understand. That's become a problem. How is that connected to climate change? So the one that really most concerned about is a thing called Brown spot disease. Is a fungal disease, it's been around for a very long time, but it likes warm wet, humid conditions that are becoming more and more frequent, so we're in the past it sort of seemed to occur now and then here and there We're starting to see years where it has theory large regional outbreaks, and it's a real problem, because when the answer badly infected by this, the seeds germinate the plants girl that they are not able to produce, eat themselves, and so they're not replenishing that seed bank, and they're not providing for for human harvesters, or for all the myriad while species and also benefit and utilize wild rice.

P. N. NBA insider weaver's resume is this he was a high profile mentor in AAU program tied to Syracuse dory then went from a new program to Syracuse as an assistant NBA scout to twelve years as an executive with the Oklahoma City thunder now Troy we were becomes the ninth current black GM in the NBA and he'll be the general manager we do drug tests and so what's his first job to get this organization and team moving towards that next level what do you think we were sitting down with the fans Kian gores and everybody in the front office we need to get to this first you know they're gonna look at then they've got the I believe the most amount of cap room in the league this year I believe only the necks and the Atlanta Hawks have more what that amount will be is up in the air because of the pandemic and because of usually it's gonna throw up or what but the cap was projected to be sold we might not have the thirty five million that they were expected to have but they're going to have more than all but two teams so how they want to use that cap space and you know is it enough in a by gone era that the easy answer is that was well you go out and get there's many good players thirty five million by the movie you know it's become more nuanced than that now and one real viable alternative to that is to use the cap space to park contracts other teams are looking to move that that maybe don't necessarily make sense a strictly from looking at the roster building but they are moves designed to add assets either in the form of future draft picks or young players or players blocked and another in in other franchises by you know teams are looking to get out of one contractor willing to attach you know what the talented young player that Mr necessarily set in a championship picture immediately so those are the things that they'll do and build the best organizations find very very innovative ways to use that cap space so that'll be obviously be that'll that'll take up a very significant chunk of the immediate the tenure of of the new GM of the draft is also coming up in the pistons not believe the lottery is late August now and the pistons are not going to go into that with the the number five second with a up or your ten percent chance at number one on about a forty percent chance of a top four picks so they'll be a and and you know in a year where there is very little separation among the top prospects the you you you better do deep dives on you know a lot of players to make sure that you know which ones you like best about that it's not like last year's record but he knew John Williamson with on one and John Moran was going to and then you know there was another tier of people after that there might be you know they're they're it's conceivable that someone that one from options rated the second or third best prospect in this draft is rated sixteenth or seventeenth by another front office so your date that's going to be it's not going to be quite as cut and dried as high as it might typically be for at top type picture so you know you know obviously he will get on that and then the other thing he will I want to do is is bring in some trusted people around him you know there are some openings we we know that only grows asking general manager left to take a job with the NBA front office systems I'm sure will be a week looking to to fill out a system GM position and and I'm sure try it because it was given the latitude to select other staffers as he sees that so a lot of things going on but look you've got the luxury of time that he would never would have had under normal circumstances with distance you know having yeah you know if the season starts December first you still got many months to go before a roster must be put together and although those types of things so he got a luxury time in the am and I'm betting that might have played another factor of part of his decision making at that not only is the the right opportunity and and good ownership and and a good structure in place but also I've got time to really you know make a plan for the so I get I can hit the ground running and and you know make sure that we got all our ducks in a row Langlais prisons dot com pistons NBA insider joining us on the metro health sports medicine goes on talking about.

"Have But but it's interesting. I mean in in Buddhist terms right is it you know what is our path you know. Is it future oriented because the world is going to get better or it's like the cynicism or the despair is the collapse of the progress narrative? But they're both they both amount to kind of duality. That's missing something about the here. Know what does it mean to really be here now not sacrificing or utilizing the present devaluing the present simply as a way to get somewhere better in the future if you want that. Is there a different way of experiencing here now? And isn't that what something like Buddhism is all about like that? I mean it's it feels like it opens up again. This sort of empty space possibility for like you said use the term self transforming. I think that's really interesting. Okay lasting want to talk about so I've been really interested. In in watching you become engaged in an participating in the Xsara extinction rebellion movement in particular. There's a sort of subgroup the X. Are Buddhists who have mentioned on the show before and You've really in a Lotta ways. Been been a kind of emerging as a leader in that community. And you'll organized. I say you all because I'm forgetting the Nick Karen Myers I think And Sochea for her loss name. There've been a number of people who've been sort of helping to organize this community and I've seen also pictures of you protesting in Denver. I know that you've got arrested. Which seems to be part of the most hardcore way that people are engaging with this extinction billion movement. I mean obviously it's more in England and in Europe than here but I'm curious what brought you to engage in this community. And why does it feel like way of? You've already answered this but so be curious to hear what you know. What has you engaged in the extinction. Rebellion Movement. Why are you finding that interesting? It seems to me there has been a kind of change of consciousness or shifting consciousness. Let's say in the last year or so Year and a half maybe whereas I think I don't know how much of this is because of the IPC report. But I think more and more people are aware yes it is real and it's worse than we've fought and the other thing is I think more and more people are waking up to the fact that the kind of clinical system we have is not going to respond adequately to in a way camped without I think some really significant outside pressure. We talked a little bit before. But I think it's largely If you think about how American politics is structured in terms of What politicians need to do to get reelected in the way where they get the money that they need and therefore who they are really behold into so. It's not looking good in that regard so I think one response is a sense that our backs are against the wall and that therefore change will what happen unless we really put our bodies on on the Line Road? Direct Action you know. Non Violent civil disobedience is something that very quickly has become a really important issue And and not only with extinction rebellion other groups. The Sunrise Movement Climate Treaty Dot Org. I think they're moving in this direction as well in open working really hard For quite a while now and you know. Have they really need to change things? Not much there is i. Think a general movement in this direction in the belief that The social contract is broken that the institutions that should be taken care of arson particular government over mental It's not doing it. And so we have to think of creative ways trying to sort of pressure yes government in order to make them do the right thing so I think direct action things like blocking roads. It it's unfortunate you know you don't like inconveniencing people. But what do you do if you realize that business as usual is just leading to collapse? Yeah I remember seeing the mayor of London tweet during the sort of big wave of extinction rebellion that we need to stop this and get back to business as usual OLMEC. Gosh I can't believe he used that phrase like I mean unbelievably telling. Yeah I mean you know business as usual is is the mindset. That is is going to self destruct us. Yeah Yeah I mean. There is a significant difference. I mean in some ways Xsara in England works. Well because you need a large mass of people said a gumming up the works like they did for eleven days in London. It doesn't work quite well in the US where we're kind of spread out so it it's a kind of a challenge you know extra in. Colorado is growing but nonetheless were not really able to set of. It doesn't look at the moment that we're going to have the kind of massive numbers of people that would be able to set of work in that way so yeah another way since well rather than just a lock the center of cities. Yeah well I was. I was struck participated in this latest Climate Strike September twentieth. You know we're four million. People came out across the globe and I was. That was my first participation. Any kind of like on the ground activism and. I was struck the feeling that there is something happening. You know that there is a kind of ground swelling. Bring me out.

"Even though they contradict the the science. And what's weird though? Is I see that kind of try. Ballistic cultural belief thing happening on all sides to especially now in America. Where it's sort of heightened That's where I see. Echo dystopia Nazem cultural belief as system. That's hyper cynical at its base and you know for me when I look at the situation. We're in it. Seems like that hyper cynical. Attitude is part of like. It's just dominant right now. It's so dominant. The government is bad corporations and everything is bad. Other people are bad and Like everything is going to shit and we're all going to hell and to me. There's there's something dangerous about it when it slips from just sort of acknowledging the way things are to prophesyzing the way they'll be is it becomes almost self fulfilling if freaks people out when you're describing with what you're doing eco. Dharma sounds like the opposite of that to me or you're inviting people to come and really work with their the Eko trauma as you said That seems like a a healing process. Someone would probably not be hyper cynical on the other side of that process. I would imagine yeah. That's been our experience. I mean people quite empowered. Yes and you know. People are inclined to do different things but I mean I think what comes out. The other end is is feeling connected to something greater than ourselves. You know I mean. I was very struck in Paul Hawkins Book. Blessed unrest where he compared you know the large number of groups that are arising as an for social justice and sustainability. He he compared that to the immune system of the earth. That's what seems to me comes out the other end especially for you know somebody like Buddhist practitioners and remembering bodus avows remembering bodey Cheetah. Remembering that you know. Our Path is not simply about our own individual salvation. But it's about devoted to to something greater than ourselves to working for the well being of the whole. I mean that does seem to me the opposite of cynicism but it also seems to me that we're in a situation where we have to acknowledge that it looks very difficult in a sense that does need to sort of shake us out of business as usual because business as usual is just leading to destruction. Well I mean you could elect someone like maybe not business as usual only have a lot to do with the echo or the cynicism. You're talking about I think it will. Yes absolutely that's how I see it playing out in political reality and it has a huge impact on our. You're on the on the material plane for sure that hyper cynicism and again not just You know trump but Boris Johnson in the UK. And they're really seems some weird weird you know collapse of of political systems going on at the same time you know one wonders. How do we connect these things Yes you know. How do we understand? Populism? I mean one thing that seems a very important issue to me is The sort of collapse of faith in progress Yes I think that the ideology of the modern world is progress that the world is getting better and the fact that more and more people don't believe that So what happens if you're not going to be better in the future? How do you understand your situation now? And I think there's some important connection there. Yeah and you know to me too. I I see that transition of in thinking letting go of the ideal of progress as being something that you know it. It tends to lead to kneel ISM and cynicism also but doesn't have to stay there you know I. I've met people who seem to have reconstructed themselves out of that. You know it's like they've come out of the other end of the. I don't know that I.

"Strikes me though I'm like. Oh but that's there's an that's not the whole picture. There's there's other things too and it seems like it's useful to take that into account and have that inform us even if at the end of the day when we sit down and try to assess these things as best we can. It's still is dire to me. That does not that. The conclusion changes but that it. It's there's some maybe open air of possibility well as I said a moment to go You know being aware of the increased carbon absorption by plants. I mean that was just one example. There are other feedback loops a a as I was trying to learn more about this and as I'm learning more about it. I'm just seeing how the picture is much bigger than any one person can yourself? Anyone like the more I get into the more I'm like. Wow this is. This really is complex. And it's like say for a Lake Orion without without scientific training but as lay people to you know I think there. There's a lot of questioning of the ultimate authority of Science to tell us about the world That that is valid to like. There's something going on there where I think. It's I see this sort of tension or country diction going on where on the one hand we want to question the validity of certain kinds of truth claims. Let's say of science. For Instance Science for instance tells us that consciousness emerges as a function of our neurology or whatever. Well that's to me. That's there's no basis for that. It's a leap of faith to say that we. How do we know And so there's a lot of cases in which science oversteps its bounds in terms of authority. And what it can say about the world with accuracy And that's that's come into light you know it's like we don't live in a culture where everyone sort of worship not that we ever have but no maybe science at a more important position in our culture. It seems like a few decades ago that does even now and I I guess I see a tension there where it's like. Sometimes we look at the signs and we say yes the Science and then other times we say well known not the science will move. How do I trust Climate Science Social Science? What's the difference? I don't really know and said that brings kind of questioning the confusion and doubt around which of these stories and narratives about the present and future. Should I actually hold to something that I can work? Off of and build off of Have some sort of sense of what's happening to be able to even respond I part of what? I'm noticing so confusing about this time. The Meta crisis is just how disorienting everything is. I agree with you. You know for for the most part about sort of questioning. You know some of the fundamental assumptions of science in terms of materialism whether consciousness is simply a result of a certain complexity of material forces. I mean there are some. You said that there's no evidence for that well that we could get into. I think it's a fascinating discussion. But in general I would agree with you on that but I would also distinguish between you know those fundamental questions about the scientific process. The scientific worldview and and still find that the conclusions that the overwhelming number of climate scientists are coming to about. You know what's happening and This is what like ninety plus percent ninety seven ninety seven so it's image abroad consensus. I mean it's a hugely broad consensus and I'm quite willing to accept that consensus in the sense that the carbon that were kicking into the atmosphere and of course so now we're just talking about right Climate Emergency. We're not talking about all the other ecological issues which need need to be brought in here. But yeah from what? I'm reading and trying to understand a it. Looks like they. They have some very good analyses. I've also read critiques of people who don't believe in human caused anthropogenic climate change. And you know they're just not very good arguments seems to me. The scientists have done a pretty good job of answering them so on that level. It seems to me the science is something that we need to take very seriously. I'm not a scientist but I'm also educated enough that I can understand the popular books that they're writing for non scientists and I really don't want to minimize the kind of risk that we're now headed into you know which to reinforce what we said before. They're still enormous uncertainty of how that's all going to unfold and play out but you know sort of more positive feedback loops positive the encouraging sense. I I don't see them as sort of playing a significant in reducing the dangerous there as I said earlier you know. Parts per million of carbon in the atmosphere that that's already taking account of the extra carbon that the plant or have been absorbing so the problem remains. I guess yeah I would agree with that. You know. That's that's where I come down to read this stuff now now. No one thing that's interesting. There's some bizarre 's how people's views on this some many people it's not about science at all you know it's It's really more like you said tribal It's like we have these sort of tribal beliefs and then we believe them.
"loy" Discussed on Buddhist Geeks
"You know and and to the degree to which people get certain about that to me makes them techno utopianism Like I said to you earlier. I don't feel as identified with that position anymore because I can see from web two point. Oh great disillusionment of like. Oh The promise of Web one point over the Internet was not realized instead they coopting centralizing forces in a sense created all these proprietary Internet's and we don't even have a free open internet anymore And so that to me was disillusionment process to me. Also I see ECOED DYSTOPIA MISSOULA. You know where. There's a sense that we know for sure that that society will collapse or that that we're going to go through a collapse. Scenario that it could be Apocalypse apocalyptic and to me. I don't you know this is. I think this is the Buddhist training and maybe what what the Dharma realization provides don't know don't know mind where yeah where it's like in both cases were taking trends and models and were extrapolating. But we're we're always extrapolating with incomplete information. Which is you know the limitations of our cognition and so we don't really know I mean we we come up with the best. All's we can we have to act regardless so it's not. It's not an argument for just like doing nothing. How do you really to that that that sort of? Yeah I mean I think it's important to note it. I think it's a real polarity and and I think your way of presenting it is is quite good and also I think the Buddhist response I mean We don't know I'm fond of quoting one of my teachers. Robert Aitken. Who said are are. Pat Isn't about clearing up the mystery but making the mystery. Clear that you know on this path. It's it's not about and suddenly we understand everything about how the world works and so forth but it's rather that we open up to this kind of fundamental mystery So that we don't really know what's possible in fact we don't really know what's happening now. In in many ways I I think that that that's the kind of essential aspect of the body such a path you know one of the implications there is not getting caught up in either hope or despair and because there are kind of future oriented. Duality that I think can be quite misleading. I've been working with Johann Robbins here and at our local ECO Dharma Center near Boulder. And which is beautiful and we're trying to work out. What what would he go? Dharma Training B and part of that is helping people get in touch with their grief or even they're kind of Eko trauma in a way that helps them not repress it anymore and in the process of doing that it seems really important to me to distinguish a grief from despair in a sense to be something bodily. It's something right here now. It's very uncomfortable. And we tend to run away from it. Run away into anger or planning or hope and despair and Saying then there's a lot of emphasis on acting appropriately but the emphasis there is given that we don't know what's possible given that There there's an essential mystery here given that the mystery isn't something that we're going to solve with more information than how can we respond appropriately right here right now? The fout having some some supposed grip on what's GONNA be coming down. It's an interesting challenge. What we're finding of course what we found this year and were pretty happy with the model that we developed. Was You know when you do get in touch with your grief especially in a beautiful setting like that where you're living together with a bunch of other people twenty four seven in a in a kind of community that can really help you deal with it And then there there's something very empowering about that and empowering that doesn't necessarily imply that one is either helpful or or despairing but simply doing doing what we can and not knowing what's GonNa come out of it or as I say at the end of the Kodama Book and this is to me the really important thing acting without attachment to results and what that that's easily misunderstood. It can imply a kind of casual attitude but but what it really means fundamentally I think is doing the very best. We can not knowing if anything we do is going to make any difference whatsoever insofar as were grounded in some kind of contemporary practice. I think that can be extremely helpful. In fact maybe necessary. If we're going to be able to act in that fashion only being said I WANNA go back to the set of Dystopia Newsham if we really look at the science. The science is not very ambiguous except in the sense that we don't know quite how it's going to fall out and it's the situation as bad as and typically what we're seeing is that The predicted scenarios are in fact not adequate to what's happening things are melting. Things are collapsing much more quickly than the scientists predicted so we also talked to acknowledge on that side of things and and again. It's there is a scientific basis for not being optimistic about what's coming down so you know how. How does one respect what the sciences is pointing us to and not just sort of being optimistic and by by ignoring that and but also it of course quite how that's going to unfold we don't know and and somehow it seems to me that are our practice is sort of on the sort of balancing those two things may be on the knife edge between those two things if that makes any sense? Yeah it does it. Does I mean when I when I was reading the the IP SEE REPORT. The came out Last year I mean that was a sobering isn't even doesn't capture minutes. Slyke extreme waking up from from total hangover looking around and seeing everything is on fire shit. is conservative. They sport you know. So if they're grim. You know there's a fair chance. It's twice as grim. I mean so. That's all the more reason to set a perk up and and to sort of wonder what the hell's going on here. Yeah Yeah. I obviously agree with that. No I think there's something happening in global culture around authority and Truth and science. You know that's interesting. Because on the one hand it seems like post modernity has really questioned allowed the truth claims of science if the replication crisis and social psychology and. That's an example. I climate science is a little different innocence. It's too little more rooted and kind of biology and geology and earth sciences. Yeah Yeah Yeah but it's also you know when it comes to modeling climate. Change it clean again. I'm not I'm not a client. Climate scientists. Obviously but it seems like we're taking our understanding of how everything works which is growing but it's far from complete of our of our ecosystem works. How all these different feedback loops play play together and where the tipping points might be. Are Those things seem like? There's some things known about them and there's some really scary stuff like the melting your permafrost and methane. That's captured there in the way that that would drive further heating But then there other things at play and it's interesting I didn't see I made just miss this but I didn't see you talk about this in the book. Other other feedback loops in in our ecosystem that work. In a way to help stabilize Stabilize US where for instance you know the more carbon that's emitted the more plant growth. There is the more plant growth is like thirty percent increase in plant growth as a result of carbon emissions trading so that increases the amount of carbon can be sequestered by planning. There's a there's a way a counterbalancing counter-balancing feedback loops also at play. And we just don't sort of understand. It's like wicked complexity of these biological systems. So we don't.
House Dems raise prospect of new impeachment articles, in court battle over McGahn testimony
"We're back now with the politics. Lead House Democrats insisting they still need the testimony of former White House counsel Don mcgann because their investigation into whether president trump obstructed justice continues and could in theory lead to additional articles of impeachment that is in response to a filing overnight from the Justice Department which argues the courts should avoid weighing in mcgann while an impeachment. Trial is pending. WanNa bring a CNN senior. Justice correspondent Evan Evan. DOJ also saying that since hence the articles of impeachment do not include obstruction of justice. which they want to hear from Don mcgann about his testimony is irrelevant at this point? Does right Erica in the articles of impeachment. There's only one cursory Sort of reference to the mother investigation. And and that's one reason why the Justice Department says that the courts first of all should stay out of. It's been their argument for for some months. Now that the that the court should play no role in a fight that is between Congress and the White House but The heart of this says the importance of all of this big question which is can. The president give absolute immunity to his close aides. That's what the president is arguing that these people don't even have to show up to To in response to a subpoena from from Congress in this case Don mcgann who as you know it was a was the former White House counsel and was unimportant Horton witness in the obstruction of justice. Part of the Muller investigation well and the houses also arguing that it needs muller grand jury secrets to show in the Senate impeachment impeachment trial President Trump's pattern of soliciting interference and obstruction right. Exactly that's the one reference that they make in the articles of impeachment that have already been approved proved but the question here is you know what does this matter for for any other parts of the of what the what the House Democrats are doing. And I think what the courts are struggling ogling with And you know certainly what the administration is trying to exploit here is the fact that the Democrats have have already voted for these articles of impeachment. And the answer is from the House. Democrats is we can always impeach him again. Essentially we can add more articles of impeachment In addition to the ones that have already been approved. Be Interesting to see how that would would work. Evan Perez appreciate it as always. Thank you C. N. N. legal analyst Joe Jackson back with me now. So let's start with what we heard from the Justice Department. These arguments again filed overnight tonight to those arguments. Water depends who you ask the panther you sitting next to write from a department of Justice Loy. Eric I'm going to say absolutely they do. They carry the day but let's just try to evaluate it objectively. I think the core clearly has a place here. Why you can't on the one hand argue that you know what mcgann is absolutely immune? He's not going to go to Congress because I say so. If you don't like that go to the court okay. So then we go to the court and then you get a district court ruling that says that presidents we elect them. We don't elect kings or anything else. He has to testify. But if there are specific issues that you feel a privilege that you feel fall into illegal exception he could cite that at the time of his testimony and and then of course now you say well no. It's going to impede upon what we're doing here. I don't think it's a credible argument. Look as long as we get paid to make arguments we get paid to support clients and what they want us have as do as long as those arguments we call frivolous meaning. They have no merit but I think at the end of the day. It's really not a legitimate argument to make that the court has no place. It may impede upon the impeachment proceedings and therefore hold off. Hold the phone. Don't do it. I just think that Da. No I do I mean what. What else is it's it's it's been complete stall? We know that Congress has a responsibility and that responsibility includes getting information from the executive so to your point in terms of Congress has a responsibility the the house we just heard is saying. Listen part of the reason that we need to hear from Don mcgann is that we are not done investigating and there could be more articles have been preserved very well may yeah I mean it's premature right. I think they have to get through this. There's been an impeachment. We'll see what happens now. The Senate trial in terms of whether there's actually more evidence and information and facts and will all those facts. Erica actually matter but sure I mean look if you do something that's impeachable. The House has a role to ferret out what that is and to the extent that mcgann has critical information that that he has not conveyed because he's being held and not to testify. I think the court should make a ruling. They should proceed. You think they should make a ruling just quickly do you think mcgann again and other important. Witnesses could be compelled to testify. I I don't see it. I mean I think they should be but at the rate this is going. Are you talking about the Senate trial for purposes of the Senate trial. Well I think that's completely in the arm of one Mitch. McConnell the Senate majority leader. I think he'll call the shots
