friend PR comes from K. books found in support of the David Gilkey and Zabihullah Tamana memorial fund established to strengthen NPR's commitment to training and protecting journalists in high risk environments this is All Things Considered from NPR news I'm ari Shapiro hosting the from my home studio and I'm Mary Louise Kelly hosting from NPR headquarters in Washington another week another round of staggering unemployment numbers six point six million more Americans filed for unemployment last week that is nearly seventeen million total who filed in three weeks and is unemployment spikes Republicans and Democrats in Congress cannot agree on how to help the Americans they represent today Senate Democrats rejected a GOP proposal to send additional money to small businesses Democrats say they agree more money should be available to taxpayers but lots of questions remain about where the first three hundred fifty billion dollars to allocated are headed this well joining me now is senator John Thune a Republican from South Dakota who is among the highest ranking Republicans in the Senate we've caught him on the line from South Dakota senator welcome back to All Things Considered thank you Mary Louise who is nice to be with you glad to have you with us so we had house speaker Nancy Pelosi on the show last night laying out what she wants what Democrats want which is you know is to include an additional two hundred and fifty billion dollars for hospitals states and local governments and I just want to play you what she had to say much you respond this is her speaking about the Senate legislation as it currently stands the bill that they put forth will not get unanimous support in the house it just won't listen to soon if this is dead in the water in the house and if Americans are desperate why not agree to a five hundred billion dollar package well I mean I just think that they are amid the ongoing crisis in which we got gold you know businesses and workers are clearly struggling I think that disappointed that the Democrat leadership blocked what is critical funding to provide additional relief to those who need the most to the point that they're making about other headlining at other dollars to other programs we've already authorized dollars other programs none of which have been distributed yet the first hospital dollars you're actually going out today so we don't know what we're going to be we don't know what's working what's not working what we do know is that the the paycheck protection program which is the program designed to assist small businesses and help them keep their workers employed by getting them hundred percent guaranteed forgivable loans if they use them to keep their employees employed is running out of money and so this is a bipartisan program it's one they actually support and I think we need to we need to get past any kind of partisan delay tactics as in American people really don't want to see that is there a risk so if Republicans seem to be the ones advocating for less money at a time when many Americans feel financially desperate well I think that that and I don't think it's a question of less money I think we know already I guess so we've got you know we have checks going out of their bills presence talking about another round of those checks we've plucked up the unemployment insurance accounts at all the states it is less money to I mean the Democrats want to spend an additional two hundred fifty billion dollar sang date date they do but they wanted bill Potts that they want to put it in our areas where we've already allocated huge amounts of money hundred fifty billion to state local governments a hundred billion over a hundred billion to hospitals and that money has been distributed yet and so they're saying we want to add additional to this without even knowing what the media's and all are or were simply saying as you know it's what these dollars get out there and then let's figure out that's what the need is and we're I mean our our members are more than happy we're gonna do whatever we need to respond to this to get folks through it where this goes next this is Jim out of money at stake upwards of well upwards of two trillion already passed the president has removed the inspector general tasked with overseeing how it is spent Congress can't convene to hold oversight hearings where is the accountability well I mean there will be a person that steps in the inspector general obviously there's an accent that position is not going to be vacant it is a concern is that that inspector general was dismissed well I mean I think we have there members of the house and Senate might not always agree with the present personnel decisions but at the end of the day these are all people that serve at his pleasure and we want to make sure that that position filled it's filled with somebody who is a professional and not not political insults obviously we're paying a lot of attention to that in some of our members of our expressed concerns about that move in a letter and will will we will do the oversight center Grassley is for later on they're asking for an explanation about Cision and it Romney says Tarun Susan Collins it's you know it's a number of Republicans correct that's right yes so we'll we'll we'll do the oversight that's our role at her job it will try to get some answers one.

We see an opportunity to make the powers that be political or corporate understand that their time is that this is no longer the way we want to do business no longer the way we want to consume commodity linked to wholesale human rights abuses in forest destruction that are leading towards a crisis an emergency for all of humanity. How much do you think these individual decisions matter. Whether you know say for instance you just choose to stop eating meat. That's all you do i mean is that a big enough individual decision to feel like you are contributing to the solution. I think if enough people limit their meat consumption. We're on our way to do something right. That's precisely what the i._p._c._c. report mentioned is that it's not about this hysterically taking drastic steps to change our diet so drastic steps to change our life to make a small incremental steps at a large scale. We all need to understand that we have a role together not just as individuals <hes> therefore the work here is not about one person deciding to to limit their beef consumption or what have you.

"Three eight hundred million dollars worth in two thousand seventeen before foodsafety ban went into effect aben president trump has said he'd like to lift so what's a conscious consumer supposed to do you joining me. Now is christian create director of amazon. Watch a nonprofit that works to protect the amazon and a critic of the bolsonaro government christian. Welcome having me. We spoke to a brazilian scientists last week who employed consumers here to know their supply chains in his words but that's not actually very easy to do. Is there anything consumers can do to responsibly by burger meat or other food products. That could be coming from the amazon. Well increasingly. We're seeing the u._s. Is considering importing more from brazil which would be an absolute catastrophe. Donald trump in jibe also not talking about a free trade agreement meant. I could open the floodgates to the kind of destruction of activity. We're seeing today in terms of <hes> beef production because beef is driving the vast majority of illegal deforestation nation indeed driving the fires. We're seeing today because many of these fires were set by brazilian cattle ranchers to expand their operations one of the companies. We identified in our report jay bs. Yes is very active in the u._s. As well in two thousand seventeen they had almost thirty billion dollars in revenue in this country alone and they own companies are have the majority ownership in companies like pilgrim's pride which is a well known brand that people buy and maybe not be aware or not aware that they're buying into a highly corrupt and destructive company anthony j b s has been involved in sprawling corruption scandals in brazil and is already in snared in a number of of dirty business operations here here in the states meanwhile we american consumers are consuming goods that go right back into the pockets of these bad actors in brazil it does seem though that it is still pretty difficult perfect for consumer on a day-to-day basis to be able to make smart decisions about their lives that would you know aligned with their values one thing we saw in the recent i._p._c. Report is that we can limit our consumption of meat because if we do that we are going to get twenty percent closer to the solution that we need to keep our planet from only rising one point five degrees celsius in other words to avoiding the worst of the climate crisis so part heart of the solution here is changing our our habits in some degree and yes it is difficult to know where products come from if possible we can limit the purchase of products that are linked to companies as such as as i just mentioned we also need to call on our political leaders to stand end up to the ball sonata regime today and not do business under these conditions so it's not just a consumer question. It's also a political question increasingly. Do you think that the global attention that's been captured by the amazon fires is crystallizing. This idea in more consumers minds is that there is a connection between the two absolutely. I think that the fires today are really an alarm bell. This has been going on for many years. This is not at the beginning of wholesale amazon destruction unfortunately but the crisis we're witnessing. Today is a wakeup call to the world and while i am distressed the see what is happening on the ground particularly to <hes> indigenous communities who are have been working hard to preserve their forests and are now experiencing over three three thousand five hundred fires indigenous territories in the amazon alone <hes> to traditional peoples to smallholders who are all suffering..
