"Your host for the program is David. Cosso a DC based healthcare policy analyst. And we invite you to comment on the program by visiting the healthcare policy. Podcasts DOT COM. Now here's David. Welcome to the healthcare policy. Podcast I'm the host David Intro Cosso during this podcast discussed with Professor Michael Burger Executive Director of the Sabin Center for Climate Change at Columbia Law School. The trump administration's efforts to unwind the nation's environmental regulatory rules and the status of Climate Crisis Related Litigation. Professor Burger. Welcome to the program. Thank you for having me. Professor Burgers by was posted on the podcast website on background to state the obvious we interact with the environment constantly as a result. We are exposed to harmful animal-borne germs like viruses bacteria parasites or so called zoonotic diseases. Scientists s made more than six out of every ten known infectious diseases and three out of four new or emerging infectious diseases. Come from animals. Think Dengue Malaria Rabies covid nineteen according to the National Academy of Sciences. The environment is responsible for thirty percent of premature deaths. He Fi far higher percentage than healthcare prevents. This explains why minority Communities Face Higher Kobe. Nineteen related mortality. Upwards of three times their immune systems have already been compromised by degrade environment for example poor air quality despite for recognizing the adverse effects. The environment has on our health. The for example environmental impact statements. The trump administration has worked aggressively to gut the nation's environmental protections according to the Save Insanity Administration has unwound or ten zone wind approximately one hundred environment regulations ranging from power plant and car and truck. Co Two emissions. Mercury and hydrofluorocarbons emissions. Who was protecting wetlands from oil and GAS LEAK RULES REGARDING PESTICIDE? Use drilling fracking and coal leasing rules offshore oil and gas drilling rules etc concerned. The climate crisis listeners. Mary call my having discussed research. Polishing Twenty sixteen that concluded the adverse health effects resulting from the healthcare ministries greenhouse gas or carbon emissions our response properties Roberts of nearly one hundred thousand deaths annually in the US alone with begin discussing ministrations attack on Varma deregulations centers. Michael Burger so with that Professor Burger. Let me start by asking. If you can briefly describe the same incentives work sure The Saban Center is a think and do tank housed at Columbia Law School. We focus on Climate Change Law across the board meaning. We look at both mitigation related issues. How to go about reducing greenhouse gas emissions as well as adaptation issues to respond to climate change impacts that are already happening that will only increase in intensity and frequency over time. We are not policy shop so we don't do policy analysis. We're really team of lawyers. That focus very much on the on the legal aspects of climate policy. I and we do this at all. Scales of government from the from the local to the global We have a number of different things. We do On the side of our think and do tank We do what thinks generally do we produce a original research and writing on a range of climate law related topics we also produce An put up on our website free for public. Use a number of different resources for researchers lawyers policy practitioners students and others. These include our climate change litigation databases both US and non us. Our silencing science tracker our climate deregulation tracker which we launched on inauguration day in two thousand seventeen our legal pathways deep decarbonisation database which includes Hundreds of model laws setup for governments at all scales to adopt To achieve deep decarbonisation in the number of other tools on the do side of our thinking do tank We engage actively with partners including international organizations Domestic and international NGOs. Political staffers And representatives other academic institutions And others to leverage our expertise to have an impact on the real world so in this regard be Senate comment letters on environmental impact statements to end proposed regulations. We filed amicus briefs On behalf of scientists coalitions cities and others in big climate cases And we regularly seek to influence an inform public decision making around climate law and policy. So you're busy. Yeah we have our hands especially these days. Yes Okay. So let's go to these days So my next question. Let's get to the meat of this Though would take hours to detail the administration's assault on the environment. Let's focus on air quality since among other things accounts for a seven million deaths worldwide or degraded air-quality so Let's focus more over again on this subject. So what's the administration's policy toward amongst other issues Power Plant emissions. This was the Obama. Administration's Clean Power Plan Auto Tailpipe pipe and particularly as well of course methane emissions which is a much more potent greenhouse gas.

"How did you a question for you on that? So this woman, Maddie who is I think she famous in Mexico is that where she was. She was a presenter on show called Salvadore gone. She really wasn't a host. She was this beautiful woman that was just assisting and not really getting to use their talents in. So when the Mike and Mattie incarnation that the way the show came to be was I was one of the many guys they were going to pair up with someone for a late night show. They were developing the woman's name. Andy Metheny if she's still around. God bless her. Disney had a deal like a one year holding deal. That's make something happen for you. So now, they're looking for a host to pair her up with and it's it's just us to want to be hosts sitting in this room. And it was every host you can think of sitting out there somebody asked what that was like I said it was great every two minutes. We'd take our sales to commercial that was, you know, everybody had a short little wonderful thing to say it was this glib talk in the waiting room. I come in. I sit down at this gal. And I get her laughing so hard she's doubling over. And I just steamroll the interview as I'm driving home. I ate and says I'm not sure what happened in there. But they're letting her go, and they now want to develop a show with you that well, this is this is going to be a red dot on my head at night. And now the goal was let's find somebody to co host. And it was every actress news. News, and you would sit down in the way you were trying to find your co host was this. It's just that. How you doing? Matty comes in and tells us great story of flying herself in for the audition from Miami to LA and falling asleep and drooling and worried what that was like and since she's Spanish he was born in Cuba. I said in Spanish, and she says L drool, and it became funny, there was this great interview. And they thought the chemistry is great and an hour later this, and you guys are gonna do a show together said, okay? Three months later, we shot a pilot at cage J on sunset forty thousand dollar little run through that they took out in tested as well. As Oprah's show when she tested back in Chicago back in the day. And they said ABC wants to put you on the air. Now what and I didn't know Mattie, and we literally got to know each other over the course of six hundred episodes interesting, and and the idea of give and take and let's not interrupt. So this poor guest Ben marines going I thought I was the guest. So there is a give and take to any host co host situation, which we we certainly got better. At in fairness Verena doesn't shut up. You see that? Well, Mattie would be the first to tell you this Mattie was so locked in on the guest, and she wanted to know everything about this person. And I was trying to be a clown. Steer the ship and get us to commercial because in some markets. We on the air does a half hour. So we had what they call a heart out. So it regardless you're gonna get cut off in the middle. And it would say Mattie, you just asked. Richard karn. How'd you get started and worth thirteen seconds? And she goes, we'll just next time. Because it we're on this little selfish you to pull the back of my head a little bit like the hair. He started to say this whatever episode, God bless her. Because you you couldn't get anybody more authentic than Mattie. Are you still friends with her to this day? How often you talked to Matty, let's see ninety eight was the last time. Oh. No, it's Christmas cards. How you doing? That's she's a very successful real estate broker now in Beverly.

"I do walking. I know. I don't do impressions. No. I heard your little rant five glasses. You're doing something. What's the bit? You do where you put. I heard of Sammy Davis. You do. Well, you've got the Balabagn's as ever during about these got Bob L glasses. It was a bit in one of your podcasts where you were talking about the impressions, how you're gonna open your show, and you're going to do these different voices. I may have been being sarcastic. Oh, I don't know. I don't do. No. Yeah. You even did a little you did a little Sammy kind of went into it. You don't remember this podcast? I don't at all I'll fly ever you do voices. But then you claim that you can only do it. Then you said something about putting glasses on episode. What that well? You've got a laptop look it up. I found it this morning. Who is the guest? I don't know. I didn't really watch. But it's on there somewhere. It must be an old one. We don't by the way, Michael. We don't remember anything that happens as soon as this ends. We have well. Feel this week. We're God damn word. What talk about a precious. I was doing warm-up Don Davis. Still in my go. I was doing warm up on Davis rules, which was a sitcom Jonathan winters and Bonnie hunt and the kid was Giovanni Ribisi and the show how about that nineteen Ninety-one. So I'm doing warm up. We'll explain what warmup is for those that don't think in a minute. But I'm the guy in the audience on the rail, and we're about this high up and then Jonathan winters. I this is our guy. Right. Just want to say hi to let alone work with them. So on a break between scenes he comes up. He doesn't stop. He goes by the rail and says to me in a hush voice say to me being how's your golf swing and then just keeps walking away? I go Bing Bing Crosby. How's your golf swing? John turns around goes. And we start going back on doing hope he used to pay. How about that? How about that Betty white? She made me she may be a golden. Gopher choose platinum to me. Now, we're going back and forth. It's like taking a pitch from Kershaw at the end of the show. He comes up and says, hey, there's a lot of fun Mr. winners. Right. He goes do that some more. So for twenty six weeks. Oh, wow. I'm working with the legis. Yeah. Yeah. And he would be he so loved entertaining. And he'd love that live audience, which the show was not nearly as funny as his ad libs were right. So they'd stop camera. And then he'd be looking and I catch them in the corner, and I'd just yell excuse me. Are you not the guy who invented lettuce, and he does ten minutes on lettuce? Week after week after week. Now, you I had the pleasure of sitting in a Mike and Mattie taping had here and I four ninety five ninety six this was ninety five Hoover. I got eight bucks an hour to sit there. No. That was before we were thing. Because normally we had people that oh right for tickets and they'd come in. We didn't pay anybody. I was early on. I was really on. And well again ninety five and Ron Pearson was the warm up. Ron's a great guy, and you say, you you may have learned from Jonathan winters because you were you liked playing along with Ron you guys chemistry back and forth. Well that that brought the audience in on it to the challenge with doing a network morning shows that kind of handcuffed you a little bit. And you've got to remember get your information out. You don't want to waste their time. But I also fell well this audience is just as important as anybody else. In fact, I wanted Jonathan winters on our morning talk show, and they said no that this is not what women want in the morning. They don't want to laugh at me entertained or directly and they eventually did. And he brought his box of hats, and we did the whole bit. And they went oh that was great. Yeah. Yeah. What I'm doing? And went recommends what it is. It's tough though, hosting with someone else that was a different dynamic, and that was not an easy thing to learn..

"There is a follow up to this. That's happened to me you think that'd be better as a host to have more to that's ever been pulled over by an officer. And thought I'm gonna do some stand up to see if I can get out of this. I've been I've tried to be charming. How give me an example. Well, not very good actor. I can't replicate. What I'd do it. I I try to. Be pleasant. And so you don't have anything premeditated. I don't have a skit prepared. No, I have what for decades. I always thought if depending on the infraction. I got something ready to go to get out of it. What are you doing? Why are you breaking the law so often you've got to come up with land bit? No, well, no, it's just having one ready in the hopper case the day comes and if if the infraction is not going to be severe, then I'm gonna try it in this has just been ruminating in the back of this little head here for tech aids in it happened recently. Okay. What happened was the driving distracted? So I think that's pretty harmless. That's well then homeless. Well, it wasn't my case. I think it's one hundred and fifty nine it might be to twelve now. I think they raised. It phone is in my hand on speaker over the chair, but the chair what does Billy's on a truck. That's actually a seat that came with the car on the passenger side. And I'm speaking like this. I'm talking, but you can see the phone and as I'm coming to a stop to motorcycle cops at pass me. And I didn't think much about it. But I'm clearly and now they have turned around and at this red light. They've let me up and the lights are now flashing behind me. I'm thinking, well, ok this'll be the moment because at worst it's one hundred and fifty nine and a great story to tell the light is red. It's in a residential area of Long Beach. Here's what I do with the lights flashing the red light. I put my arm out the window. And I do this. We've and by well, yeah. Because I don't want to stop there at an intersection. If you get a cross this busy street, there's another residence a street, which would be safer, and that's where you can take me down. So I do this. But it probably looks like this idiot. Now says no there's no trouble here. So now, I go across the intersection after waving the cops past my hands are on the wheel because.

"He came up with Letterman Seinfeld and said, maybe I'm not as funny as them. Maybe I should consider doing other things. But that skill of a comic still was very much in tune. So he start speaking on the corporate circuit weaving stand up in. But also giving insight and in wisdom along the way and has become the go-to guy. He really, isn't it. He really is very successful at it. And I introduced him to the woman he wound up marrying they were both at my party. And independently they came up and said who's that? And they'd been married fifteen years now Ross said to me about five six years ago. He goes you get a lot of free time which is true because we don't work steady. Right. He goes one. You do what I do. I said, well, I don't think I could do that Ross Nichols. Again. You said it's not about telling jokes. But it's about taking what we know and overlaying it on how that might help them, regardless of what business you're in. If you don't innovate. If you don't adapt. You're looking at two books I wrote because I had to write because. Right. Are you going to wait for the next show to come about? Are you gonna do something that makes yourself high rebel? So that's that's spawned. That's or us, and I wrote that together and it's insights on how to stay necessarily. What do you do when you get? No. How many knows that we had in our business three thousand there are one hundred and eighty five thousand members at the Screen Actors Guild at any given moment there's an eighty five percent unemployment rate of the fifteen percent that work one percent make a hundred thousand dollars a year or more. So that's not exclusive to show biz. How many businesses succeed and fail? How many people in their line of work get no, my theory is you'll ever into it. If you quit every time you got. No, if you if you don't let the know paralyze you now, we're getting into a little self help. Kind of touchy feely. But, but I honestly believe that you got to do something about it. Because no one else is going to get. I think you have to thick skin because of the business we chose. I think if you're out in the corporate world, maybe you don't have that same because you're not used to getting no as often as we are well say holes in it. Right. Certainly Ross has a great greatest line about that. He goes if you don't like change, you're gonna hit extinction. And we'll Schreiner has the other great line about the business. He goes I just had a great audition. It's down to me and the guy who's going to get it. Kim's brother. That's right controlling around. We're all going through that all the we're gonna do about it. You do you do something another color book that you're holding actually kind of started with visiting mom in a nursing home. And I walked in and they were handing her a balloon elephant coloring book. And I thought this is so sad. That's a we can do better than that. So what it what I did is. I took fifty two of the smartest things anyone's ever said since the beginning of time I'm quoting back to the bible and present day, and I took that quote, and I buried it in artwork. So as you as you color, you discover the quote, and then I attached a worksheet on the MAC of that. So there are fifty two worksheet so a corporate audience or a nursing home or even a elementary school will take this. And there's a definition of the quote ask you three questions about the quote. And then.

"I saw that after I had watched it. And so it's about a mother recording messages to her grown, son. Oh, my God him listening every Christmas to a tape. Again. I I'm not I am not okay. My mom passed away ten years ago now, and we're very close family this four of us. And when she was in the hospice care at the hospital, and at that moment where they can predict they can say she's gonna go tonight, or what we gathered the whole family around in in the hospital where we're all there and one of the things we would do as a family as get this great pizza from a place a couple of miles away. Fear Ito's pizza, which is no longer there and mom loves throwing a party. So we we got pizza and we brought pizza into the room on the night. She passed she wasn't alert at the time. She was sedated, and we all had pizza as if the party had continued. Yeah. And my sister, and I stayed after the rest of the family left, and the nurse came in and said, by the way, her blood pressure and respiratory is dropped now that everyone's gone. She goes she was very much with the at the time, really celebrating the pizza and all that. So I would never underestimate the power of something bigger than us. Yeah. We got you were there we hear you. That's wonderful. Is your dad still with us at past debt passenger eighty two? Oh, jeez. Yet at sixty five. Yeah. Yeah. And that was he was he was the guy was both mom and dad were really supportive of all that, you know, the class clown stuff all that traditional stuff. I remember being at a young age three or four seventh grade, whatever it is thinking, I think the teachers losing the room. I'd say that to myself. Are they going to do something? Like, this group would say something, I think, you know, with great intelligent ad lib Canova, then the teacher would say, Michael if you think it's so funny. Why don't you get up share it? I got up and did ten. Winter recess. I said it'd be an afternoon show trade some lunch money. Get a good seat that kind of thing. Sure. Yeah. I've always found that. I mean that I'm sure you're the same right? Make a crowd laugh. We'd like that. Yes. I was nevertheless found always like this happened. The guy that let the class clown to all the heavy lifting. I would then make once or cast a comet and get right there with you. If the aside my dad was a teacher has it was my mom and aunts and uncles. So I had this built in respect for them thinking, I really don't want to get in trouble. But how far can we take it? Yeah. Isn't that? Like a good host.

"And basically just bought got some deli Turkey, and they still had some package to stuffing and stuff like that would actually very very good. But but it was very almost like bachelor sad sack. And then we just watched to episodes of mystery science theater than two of the two of the new six the gauntlet. Does they say, and it's a show. I'm enjoying a lot too much. Why is it called the gong? Because I I've just seen Jona tweeting about posting on it. And I think it's just the hook to hang this season on their you know, they're doing six of them. They're calling it the gauntlet and that he's being forced to watch six episode six movies in a row, which again if you're doing streaming style. It's you watch them whenever you want. We're I noticed that. They did MAC and me, which is interesting. It's like maybe the first time they've done a movie that I've heard of right, which I never saw. I remember when it came out and watchable. Yeah. It was what's the story? They was like financed by McDonalds or something that's the part. That's I know they gave money. Yeah. Because there's a lot of coke and McDonald's. Yeah. And it was a shameless rip off of ET. Right. Like, just yes. Same premise, basically and just awful awful awful movie. And and and then there was a Lord of the deep was another one Atlantic rim was another one. So these are more. Modern day eight eighties. But I don't remember all those Atlantic rim might be like twenty two thousand nine thousand nine or the really well. It's it's one of those direct to video and it's rebuff of Pacific, right? What is wrong with me your time over there? So they're thrown off the people on Netflix who like, oh, well, you're not Pacific rim. But this Atlantic area must be the sequel right now at horrible, it was actually horrible. Yeah. But you know, the they make it funny. They make it very very funny. I enjoy the enjoy when they're talking to the screen. That's what I that's part of that show that I enjoy. I happen to see on on Instagram Jona posted something about it. And and I just happen to see in the comments. I don't know why Instagram like if if the person you follow responds, the person who posted the original thing, if they respond to a comment, then that rises up, and you see you see that you don't see the other comments unless you drill into it. But you see the bat call and response if you will. And so someone was like how do you guys remember all those riffs and general just like we have a script? It's written. You're looking at it. It literally not even on camera could be reading it. Right. Like you see the back of their head. I guess, but because my friend longtime friend of longtime Tammy Goldens one of them right now there have no Tammy since. Boy, I wanna to say what's gonna be twenty something years twenty almost thirty years. Probably not gold. Yeah. Back in the Chicago improv days. That's crazy. Yeah. Oh, yeah. You've told me that before. And I I didn't. But not until recently did I know that you knew her in Chicago. Yeah. Then she's friends with my cousin Dan as well. So they. And weird connection there in that way, that she she's one of those people that I would when I went to every show. I would see her at ever show every comedy show in LA. And you know, got to know where through all that stuff. And yeah, it's awesome. That she's now living the dream. Yeah. She's a great nice person one of the nice I've ever met. I mean, that's certainly. Speed on nice people. Here's a story from the other night. We went to while Oliver sick.

You're probably going to your your your impression of them as a person is going to color. How you see them positively or negatively points?

I don't know. If you don't know what his upbringing was. He could be a Duke or it could be a Popper Duke. Yeah. But you you said upbringing so it yet. What I meant like how did he was? He grew up on this mean streets of Manchester, or is he like a posh London night? Couldn't tell you. I don't know anything about him. If only someone I just I know that he pledged that Kester and a slow methodical way. I feel like. Where where he definitely like he was listening to albums the way the Beatles were, but I don't remember if he was middle class. I don't think he was upper-class who Clapton. Yeah. What what happened in the three seconds when we were talking. And when he said that. You get your it fit versus it was. I surprised he knew anything a clap that. Yeah. He knows Paul Williams. And that's the extent of his. Totally fair. So the fed yesterday. So. Any input it all and Eric Clapton? That's why are we still talking about him? Because I thought maybe you went to back to John Mayer like I was trying to figure history is on your side. Jimmy. Yes, I could have completely history. How does they go? Ooh, I'm getting to I apologize. This could be doctor related. Well, you take that. Hello, karen. He grew up leaving his mother was a sister. Whoa. Yeah. His his grandparents tend to as a surrogate parent raise them because sixteen year old mother. Okay. Couldn't take care. Interesting. Where did you grow up? He grew up in. I know a lot about the geography of England. So. There you go. What did we find out? Well, he thought his mom was a sister. That's right by his grandparents. This his mom was sixteen when she had him. I'm going to say that's not rich the The grandparents. grandparents had a couple of buckets, certainly. Yeah. Certainly sounds like the kind of thing that would happen. Not in a. Affluent family. But then again, actually, I feel you could go either way could be on either extreme Royal? Then you then you might over that up because you can't afford the shame or whatever then send you send a kid to the country for nine months, and then your last name is snow or something. Yeah. He's he's not a Royal. But it doesn't say. So he's not part of the Royal family. No, he's he's he's a night. Now, though, isn't it? Yeah. She served as her cleft must be. But it doesn't say definitively. Whether he grew up poor, which normally would usually a selling point for an artist. Yeah. Right. Right. Let's say what his grandparents did for a living, for example. Now it says. His but a lot of information for your off handed comment about comparing him to John Mayer.

"Find your car. Guy. He couldn't even come in here. We've had Conan O'Brien we've had many tall person. Well, we can't come in here because he's not welcome. That's the matrix nestles tall. He's very very tall. And he's got a giant head. I compared him that the the guy that plays the the organ at the silent movie theater because he he's just always. Cutic-? A goal. He's also goal. He's a horrible human being to three. He's like always figure. Figuring the six three. He's like a city. The fact that his head is three feet of his six foot three. And are you're not going to like the association because it's something you love. But he's basically a young Frankenstein is Frankenstein likened his in his tape. But he's young I'll agree with that. So he's a young Frankenstein movies about and you walk in there. Give me out of here. What got you? People took a joke and nowhere near the wreck lines on that. I'm not a bro in a frat guy remembers every line removing. I enjoy moving with my life. I have a question. I don't care. But now that I'm thinking about it. I'm curious does John Mayer still make music or does he just tore with other people and with the dead for a while yet company out with those guys? I don't know the last time he made I remember what I brought him up at Cohn into the band. I'm not gonna say what band members because that's not fair to them. But I remember the we were all talking about how he's a horrible human being and they had worked with him. And and again, I'm lot not all of them are somebody before the band members. I will not tell anybody who these people are you can rule out Lebombo because he doesn't talk so pre or post vino, let me just get my head around who you're talking to vino been from day one. But didn't he leave at some point not at all? No. Max weinberg. Yeah. Max left did this post max, I gotta tell you that. And although it was at number was not this. I apologize. This was at the tonight show, this Lisburn seven era, okay at end the tonight show era. So there was a like, I think the eight actually because I think we had a percussionist as well on that good that that changes the numbers are now it's harder for people. There's a chance maybe I'm exaggerating. This about talking about Jimmy Kimmel spandex the I don't do that. We don't go. We can't get so bad co out you can probably tell some stories to editor in this is not a big story. But it's a lot of setup for this to for. I said, and I stained by this. Although they all tell me, I'm wrong. I said, yeah, he doesn't use a horrible. And they again, they had stories about how he's horrible human being. And I just see more of I think, you know, what a great guitars. He's got no fucking. So he's a horribly so mechanic, and they went nuts on how he's not a good guitarist. Are you?
