"Pennsylvania is an important swing state for a presidential candidate to court and there is one word that keeps circulating in conversations about Pennsylvania. Fracking. During last week's debate, President Donald Trump framed his opponent, Vice President Joe Biden. As an enemy to the fracking industry. Biden does support fracking but not on public lands, and his climate plan imagines a slow move away from fossil fuels and to renewable energy. Trump framed his opponent's climate change plan as something that will kill his chances in Pennsylvania. But let's step back here is Pennsylvania, really such a monolith when it comes to fracking support? And had a Pennsylvanians feel about climate change. Joining me today to talk about this is Rachel McDevitt, Energy reporter for State Impact. Pennsylvania, based in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Welcome to science Friday. Thanks for having me no. You recently spoke. I understand to a lot of Pennsylvania voters about how they feel about climate change. Can you give me a little bit about the themes you heard from these voters? Right? So we put an online survey up on our website on state and power, Pennsylvania and about 200. People got back to us. About half of them said they want to see that move that shift to clean energy through investment through mandates through incentives to encourage it, and they emphasized to move away from fossil fuels. And other popular topics included a carbon policy to either price carbon or limit carbon emissions, strict regulations on other types of pollution and jobs programs to retrain fossil fuel workers and encourage again that shift to clean energy. That's interesting. Who would have thunk? What are we seeing in polling data? About how Pennsylvanians feel about climate change. So polls tell us that around 70% of Pennsylvanians, except climate change is happening, and they want their lawmakers to do more about it. That's 70% figure. But there is a divide an opinion by party. I'm sure that's no surprise. It's much less important for Republican voters A Franklin and Marshall College poll from last year they do a lot of polling specifically in Pennsylvania. They found only about 40% of Republicans think climate change is causing problems now compared to 85% of Democrats, his Pennsylvania's such a monolith when it comes to fracking support, as Trump seems to believe. I don't think Pennsylvania's a monolith in really any issue and fracking is probably no different. There was a recent CBS YouGov poll that found 52% of registered voters in Pennsylvania oppose fracking. That's similar to other polls. Franklin and Marshall College in January this year, found 44% of voters in the state opposed shale, gas drilling and 48% supported But they also found 48% support a ban on fracking. I do think it's important to point out that fracking can be kind of a charged word. So if you ask how people Feel about fracking versus gas drilling. You could get some different results, but they're pretty evenly divided on the issue. It looks like and this has been a fight that's been going on for quite a while, hasn't it? Yeah, I think Fracking has been controversial since it started in the state. The boom really started about a decade ago. People who live near those sites. Those well sites have complained about health effects. Some people who leased their land to gas companies say they were cheated out of royalties. And just this year, our attorney general released a grand jury report that detailed numerous health and environmental complaints against the industry. But by and large, the state Legislature has largely been supportive of the industry and welcoming for it in the state. There's an interesting quote in your story that I've gotta play. This is from Votre Jacob Griffith Rosen Burger, who lives in the Pittsburgh area. He's talking about how some say shifting to clean energy will mean huge job losses. And so a solution to that kind of scaremongering is saying, Okay, sure. We're gonna lose jobs associated with coal and fracking natural gas, But we're going to gain all these jobs working on renewable energy. Is that something you here as an energy reporter that it's not so much about the industry but more about the number of jobs. Jobs are definitely a big talking point, especially in our state Legislature, which is controlled by Republicans. We have a Democratic governor, but our lawmakers routinely make statements that Doing good for the environment or China fight. Climate change is going to cost those energy jobs and hurt the economy. They make it a choice, which green energy advocates argue is a false one. And it's important to point out that all total energy jobs in the Commonwealth make up less than 5% of Pennsylvania's total workforce. That is very interesting. Let's move on to renewable energy. Is it picking up steam in Pennsylvania at all? It is a little bit. The state released a report this year that shows clean energy jobs are among the fastest growing in the state. He grew at over 8% between 2017 and 2019. They do use a broad term for clean energy. They include jobs and energy efficiency. Let's in, like eight back heating, cooling air conditioning systems. But that sector added almost 7800 jobs between 2017 and 2019 to reach a total of around 100,000 jobs. But those numbers are for the pre pandemic before Koven 19 came and there were lots of shutdown, so it is likely that at least some of those jobs were lost. Very informative stuff.

"Mike Gallagher. Mike, I'm wondering if Joe Biden thinks that this desperado song that the Spanish national anthem or something, Thank you, Mike. In North Carolina. Just got a question. I understand how some of these folks May not appreciate Trump and some of things he's something, he says. But how owner can they cast a vote against him and in favor of bottom? They know they can't They just can't And honestly, when you stop and think about it. What's at stake. When you stop and think about what we're up against a za nation. You'd hand the keys to the country over to this guy. How insulting and demeaning it is. How insulting and demeaning To pull out. A song that you think has appeal to the Hispanic community and you're going to say Please vote for me. I'm not kidding you. I mean, And there's a parallel to this. To the Latino community, and I want it. I want to dive into that. But Dante has a reaction to Biden pulling out his phone in plain desperate Zito. Hey, Dante. Welcome to the Mike Gallagher Show. How are you? Taking my call, because I'm really, really angry right now. I'm super insulted. I'm not. I'm not a Republican, and I listened to your show all the time. But that was an absolute slap in the face. He basically called the simple people. He might as well have just offered us all a free bag of rice. That was so insulting. I can't believe that he did. That is the first I'm hearing of it. I didn't watch this stupid little town hall and I'm glad I did it. I couldn't believe my eyes. Dante. I'm watching this and I'm thinking Did this man literally pull out a phone and played Esposito holding the phone up to the microphone, grinning like a Cheshire cat saying Hey, you Hispanics, see why you should like me. Dante. It was on black. It's unbelievable. I can tell you now I understand now how black people. So when he said, if you don't support me, you're not black. How dare he be able to decide and say things like that? And Dante dropping the faith to that point. Let me ask you something about about black lives matter and what we're seeing. I just there's a news story that just moved. About one of the rioters and one of the people committing acts of vandalism and rioting in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, if they identified her. Her name is Katherine Paterson. She is a white rich kid. Like so many of these violent people and tifa and these these violent Vandals and criminals have been listen to this. She's she's being held right now on $1 million bail. She's a Kappa Delta sorority sister. She's originally from the tiny town of Mercersburg, about two hours west of Lancaster and is an undergrad at Franklin and Marshall College, which charges over 60,000 year in annual tuition. Now, Dante, a lot of these people being arrested. They're not black Americans who are trying to protest social injustice. They're rich white kids. The rich young white kids. They definitely infiltrated their movement. You know, Black lives matter has some valid points. But when we're now being when it's now being taken over by others, and you're blocking entries to hospitals where cops.

Just by the fact that they were heavily disadvantaged by this and remember in Pennsylvania congressional boundary lines. Are drawn by the state legislature in the form of a Bill, which that's exactly right, and goes to the governor for his signature or not. And that's typically the way it's done.

When we come back when I played t play, you voice from leadership in the Pennsylvania Republican party because we're to say they don't see a problem with this and they've really resisted the the court case that was brought here in Pennsylvania. But I mean, just give me a sense of what what you think in over the course of reporting is the fundamental problem that people were most concerned about with these very strangely drawn districts. We heard rich Rafferty. Before saying that he happens to be happens to be Republican told me even though fair district is not a partisan. He told me he just didn't like the fact that so many people were running unopposed in just felt that those anti-democratic again, I think there is a real problem with the competitiveness of elections. We heard I heard time and time again, just going out and talking to real people. My vote doesn't count, and I think that was the core of it that people felt like even if they go out and vote, the election was predetermined. That's all changed now. Well, we'll talk more about that when we come back, but we are talking about Pennsylvania's adventures in redistricting and what that might have on politics here in the keystone state. And also since we're heading into those midterm elections, what effect that might have on national politics as well? I'm joined by Lindsey, Lazar ski. She's a journalist for WHYY Terry.

"Lindsey welcomed on point high, Magna. It's really great to have your reporting on this redistricting effort in Pennsylvania's been. Tremendous. So thank you so much for joining us and also with us in the studio is Terry, Madonna professor of public affairs and director of the center for politics and public affairs at Franklin and Marshall college professor. Madonna, welcome to you. Thank you for having me. So first of all, let me just ask you both and Lindsey, I'll start with you. I mean, we heard we heard that little seen from creeds restaurant in in king of Prussia Pennsylvania, where the old seven this district was about it was just this tiny. I mean, more broadly speaking, how would you describe how gerrymandered Pennsylvania's congressional districts? Were we keep hearing that it was one of the worst in the country, but how bad was it? Well, on on first sight. Just looking at the two thousand eleven congressional district map. You would see these odd bizarre shapes. It was kind of like some weird rohrschack test that really. I mean, they didn't follow municipal boundaries and or geographical patterns. It was just this odd strange. These odds. AM strange district's. That would cut through neighborhoods that would cut through communities and by several measures, Pennsylvania was known as one of the worst gerrymandered states in the country, right? I mean, so because we talked about how the Terry, Madonna, we talked about how the electorate here in Pennsylvania's pretty evenly split, but we didn't necessarily see that split in the congressional delegation before the two thousand eleven map was drawn. The Democrats had a three or four vote edge in the in in the congressional districts and with the new map, it immediately shifted their actually about eight hundred thousand more active. Democratic registered registered voters in this state, then Republicans, but with the new map in two thousand eleven in every subsequent election for congress, the Republicans held a thirteen, the five edge and the democratic five seats were largely confined to Philadelphia Pittsburgh and a seat up in the. Northeast, so forget pretty much the rest of the state because of the way the district gerrymandering and it's not only the infamous. Seventh, I used to describe it as kind of an octopus with the tentacles going out picking Ramsey directions. Yes, Lindsey points, outgoing, cutting through neighborhoods. It gave new meaning to the to compact and contiguous, which is a requirement by the supreme court.

They one district held by Charlie dent we, we called the what? What did we call it? The the route Eighty-three district or whatever it was. In other words, it went down along a highway. To pick up, depict up, Republican votes. So what we heard over the weekend Lindsay is that part of the problem that people who wanted change saw was that with there were natural geographic, natural geographic areas, natural sort of county areas that were being cut up into multiple districts. And so folks were feeling like if they had county level issues, they didn't really have a congress person to go to or that congressperson didn't even live in their district. I mean, how, how often did you hear about that as a concern? When one real example of that would be in Berks county. So Berks county was actually divided among four congressional districts. None of those congress. Men actually lived in Berks county, and the sitting, the city of reading a struggling city which was once named America's poorest city was actually carved out of its suburban area and tied through a highway. Or a single road to more rural areas. So you can see that the urban core of Berks county was carved out and you know, place place with an area where it didn't have as much in common for something Something else..
