In a changing climate, a closer look at the tech, we're going to need to survive from American public media. This is marketplace. Tech demystifying the digital economy, I'm Ali would. We're continuing our series on how tech can help us adapt to climate change called how we survive as you've heard throughout the week solutions can involve a lot of things transferring existing technologies to more vulnerable parts of the world, updating infrastructure, applying, artificial intelligence and maybe eventually space colonies today. We're looking at a few areas on earth, where innovation is already occurring one big market risk assessment, Emily Maza karate is founder and CEO of the climate data firm four twenty-seven based in Berkeley, we hear a firm specialized in helping businesses corporations investors understand an integrate projections from global climate models and plan for the physical impacts of climate change her job. She says is all about big data the company pulls for more than forty different models for predicting climate events at the global scale those models are not for the faint of heart sue. We have developed a set of tools. That extract and process, the data and apply it to real economic assets. The customers for twenty-seven creates can help real estate, developers decide, what to buy and wear or convinced building owners to prepare better for extreme weather. Other scientists and entrepreneurs are thinking much lower on maslow's hierarchy of needs food, and water. Laura cool is a professor at Northeastern University who studies climate adaptation in agriculture, one of the biggest problems across the board will be water management's. She says transferring, simple tech, like drip, irrigation to developing countries or small farmers will be a good start. And then it's all about using tech to tell people when to irrigate in the US. There's really fascinating innovations occurring in terms of how we actually use artificial intelligence to do precision irrigation. And when it comes to water self sufficiency is a huge deal in terms of that. Station. So there are start ups trying to figure out how to make houses or schools, or neighborhoods, less reliant on local water utilities, Cody Franson is CEO of the startup zero mass water, which is harvesting water straight out of the air. So a source hydra panel effectively take sunlight and air, only and produces perfect water, so no pipe input. No electricity. Input, basically, it's a six thousand dollar internet connected panel system that creates water out of water vapor, for drinking super cool, but it is still early days, and professor, Laura, cool notes that tech can't solve everything. So I guess one can have cautionary note, I would say is that there's a danger of kind of technological optimism that could start to creep in cool says true change and true adaptation requires major political and social changes to otherwise the tech won't be available to the people who need it most. And only those who. Can afford? It will benefit so tomorrow in the show. We'll talk with a longtime marketplace climate reporter about how this shift toward adaptation, isn't sitting quite right with everyone. And now for some related links. So yesterday, we talked about private money getting into the climate adaptation game. And today, we talked about the tech and startups and the New York Times had a story last week about both of those things you can find it on our website marketplace tech dot org. Unfortunately, the story is about how venture capital funding for cleantech startups has fallen for most of the last decade because investors don't think there's money to be made there, a lot of BBC's rushed into cleantech, and solar about ten years ago, most of them didn't make any money and they don't wanna get burned again. Now, most of the discussion in this piece is around carbon capture technologies technically in the mitigation category because they'd either repurpose carbon or figure out how to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere altogether. But either way it's kind of a bummer in future. Episodes will look at how Silicon Valley is reacting or not reacting to climate change. Especially considering that the expensive and fancy office headquarters of Facebook, Google, and several other Silicon Valley companies are likely to end up underwater even under pretty conservative models of sea level rise. You guys are gonna want to adapt. I'm Ali would. And that's marketplace tech. This is APN.

But we'll drivers cash in on the stock to from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Molly would. Uber is going public tomorrow listing its shares on the new York Stock Exchange some employees of the company stand to make millions even billions of dollars and Uber is giving drivers with more than twenty five hundred rides on the platform. Cash bonuses that they can use to buy stock at the initial public offering price the amounts ranged from one hundred bucks two maybe up to forty thousand dollars depending on how many rides at driver has. But how much of a benefit is that two drivers who are already unhappy with their pay Shaly Ramirez, drives for Uber. She's eligible for the stock. But says I don't think it's enough. I think they're China throw crumbs at us at the end of the day. What we need is something that is guaranteed on a weekly basis on a daily basis on a yearly basis. On Wednesday in New York City Ramirez and other drivers protested outside Uber's headquarters calling for higher wages from Uber, and lift and better treatment, they were similar protests all over the country Ramirez drivers simply need to make more money. That stock is not going to stop us from becoming homeless that stock is not going to have that help pay our rent and care for our children. So they need to come up with something a little bit better than that. One academic says the ideal scenario would be for companies to give drivers equity before the company goes public as if they were engineers or product managers designers. A Cinderella Zhang is an NYU professor who wrote a book on gig employment and how it's changing the economy. He says securities law hasn't really caught up with the gig economy. The challenge for the privately held company is that it's extremely complicated to have hundreds of even thousands of people who don't have sort of a strong relationship or an employment relationship or onto credited investors to own sort of small numbers of shares in a private company, but he says he thinks the law will involve to allow private companies to give equity to their part time workers that would be a nice outcome. It would be sort of reflective of the fact that the made important. Tribulations to lake you know, the evolution and success of the company. Now, of course, having stock in a company doesn't mean you'll actually make money when it goes public lift also led drivers by shares when it went public, but its stock price has fallen since its public debut. Some drivers like J crater who also writes about the rideshare industry are pragmatic. You know, I think if you have the right mindset, it's it's not a problem. I mean, this is the relationship we have I am an expense. And they're gonna try and do everything they can to pay me as little as possible when Burgos public this week. It says it will reserve five point four million shares about three percent of its offering for drivers to buy with their cash. Bonuses, anything they don't buy. We'll be returned to the public market. Related links lift reported its first earnings as a public company on Tuesday. And although it gave a generally encouraging report it also held back some information that it used to give investors like the number of total rides and bookings. It had in the previous quarter, which is obviously fairly useful indicator of whether the service is growing, and I mean lift also lost over a billion dollars last quarter, which is more than it lost an all twenty eighteen, but okay, investors were mostly worried about the lack of data lift shares closed at an all time low on Wednesday, but lift did in partnership with Waymo the self driving car company owned by alphabet, which investors do like because they don't wanna see the company get put out of business by someone else's army of self driving cars, although obviously long-term that's not great news for drivers either. Because if the cars drive themselves who needs a human. I'm Ali would. And that's marketplace. Tech. This is a PM. Hi, I'm Zach and I listened to marketplace in Arlington Virginia.

No, no, not the scary kind the video app from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Molly would. The number of teenagers using Facebook that's been on the decline for years. They've migrated to Snapchat Instagram and about twenty million of them are over on house party a live video app where people drop in on each other and chat or leave video messages, and they can hang out with up to eight people at a time. I know the name house party sounds like kids doing I don't even want to know what on video, but actually co founder and chief operating officers Seamus Donnie, told me she wants house party to be for real personal, connections, and empathy literally no filters, you friend, a group of people ahead of time. And when you open the app, it actually notifies them that you're there, and you're ready to have a conversation. And so it sort of takes the emotional hurdles out of actually video chatting with somebody. Why video there obviously, inherent risks and interacting live on video. Not to mention, you know, just. Bandwith and appearance issues. You know, talk to us about the value of video as a communication tool. That's at the heart of the empathy and how we do that you say appearance like I want people to be proud of. You know, I woke up this way. Right. And if the tool is just about you, and the people you care about you shouldn't need filters. Right. You shouldn't be trying to project yourself as content. You should just be there to have like affirmation from a qualitative perspective, not validation by numbers. And I really hope that like we have a generation grows up knowing the right reaction to sadness, not just the right emoji. So talk to me about how that's reflected in the product design. Like, I assume that you're getting rid of things like likes and little hearts that pop up the screen and things that feel sort of addictive and engaging as opposed to. Antic? Well, we're not getting rid of it. We just never even built it. There's no feed it's been built by designed to promote the human connection and just showing up. We just want it to be as easy as showing up and being able to connect with people you care about. And I I see that with my kids. You are daily habit is during dinnertime, so my family's in Alabama. My husband's family's in Virginia. My best friends are in Chicago. And we'll just open it up. And it's whoever's there, but it's a predetermined group of people that I've decided that I fronted and my son now has like a very meaningful. My daughter have a very meaningful online relationship with these people. And that's not something you can do a synchronised Li it's not something that you can do in a news feed. And I'm not saying that those things shouldn't exist. There's world for them. I just think that we can all do a better job of time. Well, spent that see MRs Donnie co founder and chief operating officer at house party as. As for how you make money off empathetic and real interactions.

Sales made global shipping possible. Can they make it greener from American public media? This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm jed Kim in for. Molly would. The UN's international. Maritime Organization is committed to cutting shipping. Emissions in half by twenty fifty that matters because shipping moves ninety percent of global trade right now, if shipping were a country is emissions would ranks sixth in the world. It would fall between Japan and Germany, and it would fall, of course, below the biggie matters in the China, the US that's James Corbett, a professor in the school of marine science and policy at the university of Delaware. He says part of the solution will be tech. I talked to Corbett I about high-tech sales. And no, these aren't the flapping sheets. You're thinking of corporate mentioned one solution being developed in Japan, a rigid surface covered with solar panels, having the ability to create a hybrid power system that is using the opportunity to expose these rigid surfaces to light and and extract the solar power from them. And. Store that into batteries. That's that'll be located down near the engine spaces and use those big solar panels as movable sales to adjust to the angle for maximum wind assist is going to be a real exciting. Kind of innovation that will work on some vessels. And it'll work on those vessels better in some routes where they can best take advantage of both sun and wind anytime you're talking about any of these changes, we're talking about affecting potentially impacting something that's incredibly vital, which is global trade. Are there any potential risks that could come with transitioning away from fossil fuels well in two thousand seven and two thousand and eight vessels unilaterally on container ships, especially unilaterally slowed down without waiting for the world supply chains to say it was okay? And what ended up happening is we shifted to larger vessels used economies of scale. And if you look at the seaborne trade curves today, you'll see that we're continuing to increase the amount of goods we deliver per year. But we're delivering them in larger delivery units less often with a slower supply chain. So I don't see that. There will be a imminent threat to the global trade of goods ships have known since Phoenician times that their first job is to serve the world's economies. Their second job is to not saying and their third job is to be good stewards of the environment. And what's happening this century is they're paying a little more attention to that to that third goal without compromising the other two James Corbett is a professor in the school of marine science and policy at the university of Delaware. He also told me adoption of newfangled sale technology. She might bring back some of the romance to being on an ocean crossing vessel this futuristic sailing. Take could very well. Attract a new generation of c travelers though Corbett has been time on a giant boxy cargo ship, and he thought it was plenty romantic in other arguably more gigantic tech news, Google CEO's Sundar Pichai finally had his day before congress.
