"You pleasure to be here on monday. Environmental protection agency administrator. Michael regan unveiled his agency's plans to limit so-called forever chemicals or the passes obviously a pretty funny thing to say out loud. But it's not a joke. It refers a group of more than four thousand toxic chemicals. That don't break down in the environment. Pete fast chemicals were once considered a silver bullet when they were developed in the nineteen forties. Ironically a means for making our lives easier. they were used all across america from nonstick cookware. To greece resistant food. Packaging stain and water resistant. Fabrics and cleaning products these unregulated chemical compounds quickly became prominent in our everyday lives propelled by the promise of a better life made easier supposedly by technology. That's right p. S. are found in everything from our drinking water to our cookware. Even some rain jackets and cosmetics but pizzas are also hazardous for health. In fact they've been linked with certain cancers thyroid disease and other health effects. It's time that we prioritize the american people's health over prophets of big polluters. I want to go as far and as fast as we can to keep our family safe from these toxic chemicals for more on this joined now by pet rosetto who is chemicals reporter with bloomberg law pat. Great to have you here. I couldn't be here now. Why are referred to as forever chemicals. Well they're huge group of chemicals. Epa knows of six hundred fifty that are made or used in dos but the actual number is thousands and what they're called forever chemicals because some of them scientists aren't sure how many but two in particular p foa and p foss and chunk of others linger for absolutely years in our bodies clinging to proteins. Like blood now. Eventually we pee and poop them out but once they're back in the environment sunlight weather and most microbes can't break them down entirely does so does that mean that they're actually in the air that we're breathing in in the land that we're walking on in the food that we're eating a candy. The chemicals have a variety of routes by which they get into the environment but they may be released into the air by factories that are making or using them. They certainly are getting into the water through through effluent or most famously through certain specialized firefighting foams. That are used for really tough to put out fires and they're dumped on land or used in bio solids Special type of fertilizers. That farmers us right. Now they're use in bio solids isn't regulated. The epa just hasn't caught up with that and it's got a lot of research to do. Okay so what do we know about the health effects. Well what we know about the health effects mostly comes from those two and a handful of others that i mentioned the people were npr loss. And for those. It's pretty well established that they increase cholesterol. They decrease babies birthweight which affects their health. Befo is known to weaken the immune system and pd false disrupts. The thyroid hormone and the chemicals are associated with certain cancers like kidney cancer. Okay help us to understand what the epa is saying when it's telling us that it's going to rain these in. How's it possible to do so. It's going to take a wide range of actions. The epa is for the first time making a really hard concerted effort to review very closely in a new key. Fast that companies want to make so it'll be harder to get new ones onto the market at the same time. It's working with companies to voluntarily agreeing not to make certain ones and then it's going to regulate the uses of others so that sort of at the beginning of the pipe and at the end of the pipe. It's going to limit the amount of to that can be in drinking water. It's gonna propose a regulation to declare those same two as hazardous wastes which would trigger cleanups across the country and it's trying to develop the technologies and knowledge to address your pollution and it's also researching the fertilizer use of them to see. Is that a risk. And if so how big a one. And how do we control this. Now what can we do on the back end. As consumers are there ways that individuals can actually help to protect themselves and their families and communities. In the meantime we're waiting for these regulations to have a long-term effect. I would love to give you an easy answer that said yes but it's not the chemicals. The ones that are known to be the worst are largely being used in industrial settings. But some of them allegedly can break down as produce go through their life cycle so as we talk. Greece proof food packaging into the landfills as we toss wires and cables into the landfill because wires and cables can be coated with them to prevent fires. This stuff build up landfilled skip rained on and it leaches out into the water so this is something that you really do. Need a big government solution but the one thing that consumers are doing is demanding alternatives where they're available and so you're seeing certain states start to ban food packaging uses of these chemicals because there are alternatives for that use. You're seeing Certain scientists distinguish between. What's an absolutely essential use these chemicals. They're used very successfully to make stents and catheters in our bodies and the fact that they're in there is a really good thing and fda has approved that but do we need them for pizza boxes. Bob the big nut there is. You know who gets to decide what's essential but there is that effort and maine has adopted that as a regulatory strategy and the eu is also moving in that direction.

"Thursday and a slim chance of afternoon showers and thunderstorms. On Friday. This is morning edition from NPR News. I'm Sasha Pfeiffer and I'm Steve Inskeep. Good morning today. President Biden visits key lawmakers after Senate Democrats agreed on a budget framework. We really do not have a lot of details, but this measure worth $3.5 Trillion is a big deal and not just because of the price tag, unlike other bills of budget resolution can be passed by Democrats alone. So the president wants to stuff in a lot of his priorities. That seems to include a lot of infrastructure and environmental and climate provisions that did not get into a separate bipartisan infrastructure bill that includes some Republican support. We spoke of both bills yesterday with Michael Regan, the president's administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency. Bipartisan bill includes $47 billion for infrastructure resilience, I think when you look at those billions of dollars for climate resiliency Not only is it focused on bridges and roads is also focused on natural resilient measures that we can put in place with our lakes are streams our rivers to prevent erosion and to have these water bodies better protected from what we know to be. The extreme impacts of climate change. I'm thinking of some of the news of this year. Trouble with the Texas power grid that seems to be related to extreme weather events. Continued trouble in California with shortages of water and wildfires and problems with the electric power grid. There are these the kinds of things that you're able to address with this money. This money will have resources, significant resources to address those infrastructure issues. And there's a combination of the Department of Energy and EPA. That will be sure to see that these resources are spent in the best way is possible. We have to have a resilient Infrastructure that not only can withstand the impacts of climate change, but can facilitate cleaner, greener energy. But this bipartisan measure has a lot less than the president wanted for climate measures. Something like 1/10 of the money for electric vehicles. Even the water infrastructure measures I believe were cut significantly. Not as much for power infrastructure. Why was that acceptable? You know, we have to start somewhere, and I have to say this is a historic start. Yes, there will be more resources needed, But the resources contained in this bipartisan infrastructure is more than a down payment. It is making this country competitive and resilient to the climate issues we're facing, I think We can't really look at solely one of the tools in the president's toolbox. He's not listening his ambition. He's working with the tools that he has before him, and this bipartisan infrastructure framework is one of those tools. Not every Democrat necessarily signs on to every one of the president's priorities. And you need every single Democrat in the Senate even to pass this second budget reconciliation measure at some point this year, which can include things that Republicans don't like. What are you assured? You will have in the reconciliation bill that you didn't get into the bipartisan bill. I can tell you that if anyone knows anything about bipartisanship and getting things through the Senate is this president. They're working extremely hard with members of both sides of the aisle. We cannot forget that it creates millions of jobs, and it puts this country and a really competitive footing. People who are following this closely are curious about something called a clean energy standard, which I'd like to try to roughly defined here. It's the idea that the government you would set standards for electric utilities, especially and say you need to have this percentage of your energy by a certain year be from clean sources. Are you going to set a clean energy standard in the reconciliation bill? That is one of the goals that the White House has put in place, and it's important because when you have a clean energy standard, you have a level playing field across all of the states. So that we know what the targets are and that as a country we can work towards that together. By the way, when you have those rules of the road It makes it easier for innovation to occur. It makes it easier to divine certainty down the road, but it also creates a framework that's a rising tide for all of our communities so that we can incorporate environmental justice and equity inclusion into that national framework. I think you said that the president wants to get a clean energy standard into the reconciliation. Bill. Is it your impression that all Democrats run board with that approach? You know, I'll leave that to the experts. What I'm hearing is a very favorable response. From many people on both sides of the aisle. There are things in there for the American people that equate to jobs, global competitiveness, a strong infrastructure and preparation for climate change. You know, the last time we spoke administrator I asked about eliminating fossil fuels and you didn't go there. You spoke of an all hands on deck approach, meaning all kinds of energy would be needed in some way You spoke of Carbon capture because you're going for a carbon neutral America. Is it clearer to you now that you've had a little time in the job? What the role of fossil fuels is going to be after, say, 2035 when you want to have net zero emissions electricity in this country. You know, I can say that when you look at where the markets are taking this when you look at the technologies that are available from a cost effective standpoint, we're going to see a lot less fossil fuels in this system, and I don't think that's a secret. But in order to meet the timeline, the aggressive timeline at the president has laid out. I think we cannot ignore that There may be technologies. That can capture emissions from systems like natural gas that we have to deploy. It is an all hands on deck at some point in the foreseeable future. We will have a zero emitting carbon future. We're rowing in the same direction and we're excited about the potential. Last thing that I've got administrator I was looking back at the Joe Biden calm climate document. This is what the president ran on, and he used the word irreversible. He promised irreversible change toward net zero emissions over the next few decades. What can you do in this area? That would be irreversible that Democrats wouldn't lose the next election in a Republican president would undo You know, it's the brilliance of his whole of government strategy. You're not just talking about regulations as the only tool we're talking about massive investments with both the public and private sector. We're talking about the evolution of technologies that we've never had at our fingertips before. We're talking about tax incentives. This is a packaged approach. That creates so much momentum creates so many jobs protect so many people and public health that that level of momentum would be almost impossible to reverse. And the question then would be. Why would you want to reverse such success? Administrator Michael Regan..

Biden Unveils Record $6 Trillion Budget for 2022
"That's how much President Biden is proposing for federal spending next year. His budget was released today and it would amount to the highest sustained level of federal spending since World War two. With investments and transportation, education and combating climate change. Let's take a closer look now with Michael Regan, he's senior editor at Bloomberg News, Mike Welcome. Oh, thanks, Peter. So of course, this is something that would need to pass Congress. It's far from becoming law. But if you view this as a vision statement from the president, what does it say about his vision? All right. You're absolutely right. It's more a wish list than the actual budget that will pass. But as far as his statement, Peter, I think the main priorities are he wants to kind of bolster the safety net for the less affluent sort of more at risk members of our society. So more education, spending, more social welfare type of spending and Programs to allow people to get the child care they need to pursue better employment. That sort of thing as well. On the other hand, is also a priority to sort of repair a lot of the infrastructure in the country. That's needed that stuff like Bridges and roads and bolstering the green energy infrastructure in the countries. Well, so kind of Ah, two handed priority from from this administration. And that's
How Will Biden Administration Reach Its Clean Energy Goal?
"President biden's administration said a big climate goal two zero out greenhouse gas emissions from power plants by twenty thirty five last week we talked with epa administrator michael regan about this believe that we can set up the right policy instrumentation and regulatory framework to encourage continued innovation to get us to that carbon-neutral goal that we know we can't achieve continued innovation. Industries still has to figure some of this out. So what more do we know about how the government is going to encourage it. Npr's jeff brady has been following up. Jeff good morning good morning. I just wanna know. 2035 sounds really distant. And then you start counting fourteen years not that long when you talk about changing all the power plants in the country house administration going to do it. Well you know is getting. The details are getting a little bit clear from the president's budget proposal and groups talking with the administration about this Details are still being worked out but a central focus is creating a national clean energy standard. And this would be a countrywide requirement that overtime increasing of is generated from fuels that don't emit the greenhouse gases that fossil fuels do conrad schneider at the clean air task. Force says it's similar to renewable energy standards that many states have they essentially required an increasing percentage electricity sales from renewable energy like clean energy standard simply broadens the list of energy resources that are eligible under the standard so in addition to wind and solar. This national standard would include things like hydropower and nuclear and another bit of detail. Here of energy likely will create this standard. And that's a little controversial. Some of the epa to do it. It's better known for setting and enforcing standards but some of the largest environmental groups. Say what's important is it. It gets
EPA prepares to release new climate regulations
"Climate change once again on the federal government's radar. The EPA is relaunching the topics dedicated page after it was removed by the Trump administration, along with all other references to climate change.

"Be the first Native American to lead the Interior Department, the first in the Cabinet, actually. Michael Regan would be the first black man to head the Environmental Protection Agency. And they and others talked about this need to address you know environmental injustice for communities of color, the national climate adviser who does not need Senate confirmation, she'll be Gina McCarthy. She led the EPA under Obama, so she helped craft a lot of the climate policies that President Trump has rolled back. So with all the other agencies that touch on climate as well, why also have a national adviser inside the White House? Biden talks about a whole of government approach. You know, the driving message is that climate action will help the economy and create jobs and address impacts that are affecting all kinds of aspects of our lives. It is remarkable how he has spoken about climate change with pretty much all his nominees. Hey, talks about how extra Mean whether is, you know, devastating for farmers for businesses. How it disrupts global supply change threatens national security s So the idea is it's urgent. There are things many agencies conduce. Oh, and part of Gina McCarthy's role is going to be to coordinate that and push them with all their other competing priorities. I mean, this is so interesting. It's a much more holistic approach than we've seen even And during the Obama years can you give us an example of how this is gonna work? Yes, So, for example, housing and urban development, they could make a lot of buildings. More energy efficient transportation can do a lot to push for public transit and electric vehicles. Agriculture can promote farming practices. That you know, for example, lot carbon in the soil, and all those things hit major sources of carbon emissions. Also Treasury Department, Biden's pick to lead it. Janet Yellen, by the Way, has said she supports a carbon tax to shift the economy away from fossil fuels, although that would require Congress. But environmental groups would like to see the U. S. Require companies to disclose the risks they face from climate change. And then if you focus on that risk, you could discourage financing for false So fuel projects that is something that could certainly face pushback. Alright, you mentioned a word there. Congress. Biden's climate plan is ambitious, but he will face a closely divided Congress at best. How much is possible, though through executive action alone that it's a good question, and you know, even short of climate legislation, he's not likely to get the $2 trillion. He wants for infrastructure in clean energy, but he might get some, especially if there's more stimulus funding and, you know Windham Solar, a popular in red states to before her pick, Gina McCarthy told NPR. You don't even have to talk about it as a climate thing. People want jobs. People want fairness. People want to be healthy, and I think the more we can show the value of clean energy. Even in your pocket books, then people will be much less afraid to recognize that climate change is happening. And unlike a lot of executive action, this is something a future president couldn't reverse. You know, former Obama Climate advisor John Podesta told me when you build 30 gigawatts of offshore wind, that's not going anywhere. That's NPR's Jennifer Ludden. Thank you very much. Thank you.

Welcome to the program. Thank you for having me So we can all use. I think some yelled a celebration right now tell us a bit about yelled a night in Iran. Even before the pandemic, it was mostly celebrated at home right. Ancient Egypt means Believed that on this night there is a battle between good and evil. This was when day light And good were at their weakest. And night, darkness and evil were at them Peace, very path, So this knife was considered as a magical And on Lassie. That's why family would get together, usually at the home of the elders for safety for safety, right because the elder they couldn't travel, so the younger they went to the elders family and to support each other. And usually the light fire. Outside the house and also the light candles inside. And this was symbolic to help the light the sun to conquer the darkness. So tell me what you eat on this night. What kind of food is there? Food place very important role in this festival. Fresh fruits from this summer and autumn, such as what? ERM Ellen And create would be saved for this night. This'll would be set out on his ceremonial table. To get that with pomegranate. Persimmons and oranges, huh?

A lot of names we got had to do with energy and the environment. Former Michigan governor Jennifer Granholm will run the Department of Energy. North Carolina environmental regulator Michael Regan will run the EPA, with former EPA administrator Gina McCarthy taking on a sort of climate czar role. New Mexico Congresswoman Deb Holland will run the Department of Interior, which oversees federal lands, and former South Bend Mayor Pete Buddha.

Hi, Josh. And on the left Sabeel Rahman joins us. Sabeel is president of Deimos, a progressive organization that studies and advocates for voting rights, economic and racial justice and equity. Seville is also an associate professor at Brooklyn Law School. Hello, Seville. Hi, Josh. So to build these names for environments, interior, other other related areas. This seems to be we're progressive have most gotten their way in terms of the personnel choices. Yeah, I think it's a very encouraging slate. From a progressive standpoint, that's not to say that progressives got everything they were pushing for. But when you think of someone like representative Holland, who would be the first Native American Cabinet secretary in our country's history that is itself an enormous historic achievement. But representative Holland herself has also been one of the leaders in the fights for climate, justice and end racial equity throughout the country. And then you think of someone like grand home who comes out of the experience in Michigan, advancing the auto bailout from the last financial crisis. You know, these are all folks who I think bring Ah, a strong focus on climate on the economic recovery and on an environmental justice focus as well. So it's a really encouraging slave. Lot. He environment has been an area where executive action has been particularly important in the last decade or two for policy making. So what do you is a conservative make of this list of names as you think about what a bite administration might do in these areas. Well, you're absolutely right with respect to executive action, Really. We have seen a lot of activity in the energy and environment space, and I think it's signals. The fact that the Bidet administration intends to be quite activists and quite aggressive in its posture on these issues, perhaps in part because this is one area where bite and did come a little closer to the progressive left during the campaign. But also an area where he felt like he could fulfill the mandates that he believed he had one was to appoint an administration as he said, that looks like America. That reflects the diversity of America, and we see that in the kinds of appointees the kinds of nominees he's put forward, but also his policy positions are perhaps more satisfactory to the progressive left. One interesting side effect. Josh of what President Biden has done is by nominating Holland. In particular, he's reducing the size of Nancy Pelosi's majority in the House. She's probably gonna be operating with a functional one seat majority for the first part of a 2021 for at least the first few months. And so that is something that perhaps two watchers of the Congress is a little bit worrisome for the Democrats, just given how narrow the majority's will be in both chambers and Joe Biden's efforts potentially to legislate given those small majorities. Yes, I'd be like I think to that point. You know, even even if Democrats win these special elections or what, When these Senate elections, one of which is a special election in Georgia, which we'll talk about in a moment, you're gonna have a very closely divided Congress in both chambers, which I think further increases the importance of what the executive departments can do in these areas. So what are you looking for? Specifically, if you have this team with Regan and Holland and and and all of these people, what are you looking for them to do on climate environment. Yeah, I think that's lon. He's exactly right that this will be a regulatory heavy policy agenda for sure. Even if the Georgia Senate races go towards the Democrats You know, one of the things that has been notable about now President Biden is during the campaign. He did take on quite a lot of the boulder ideas on climate on climate justice in particular on so I think we'll be looking for not just a return to some climate change oriented policies that the Obama administration put forward. You know, things like the clean power plan and so on. But I think with this team you're I at least see this as a signal that the body administration intends to also Start to engage more deeply with questions of racial justice in context of climate and the environment, right. So someone like Michael Regan, who is a little bit of a newcomer here, but has some experience with an environmental justice. Certainly, representative Holland has brings a lot of that experience. Having been a veteran of Movements around things like standing rock. And so I see this as climate change, but with a much stronger racial justice and climate justice focus as a team..

Biden plans to nominate Michael Regan as EPA chief
"On his pledge, his team also announced several New key appointments this week. Who might be influential in getting us there. I'm speaking about yesterday, New Mexico representative Deb Holland was picked for interior. She's both the first native American tap for the job and a big opponent of oil drilling in the Arctic Wildlife Refuge. Good news for the climate goals, right? Yeah, you know, as they say in D. C. The personnel is policy and yes, representative Debbie Holland. A member of the Laguna Pueblo has a track record of opposing, you know, mining and drilling on public lands. You know, the Interior Department is kind of overlooked as an environmental agency. But it has jurisdiction over 20% of land in the U. S. And those lands produce about 1/5 of the country's greenhouse gas emissions. There's a lot of mining and drilling, but she has a track record of opposing a lot of that and supporting Native American rights. And so it's very likely that that will be something that will shake out in the future if she takes over this department. Plus we have the other picks this week of Michael Regan for EPA and Gina McCarthy. Yeah, that's right. Michael Regan is the head of North Carolina's Department of Environmental Quality, and Gina McCarthy herself was the former head of the EPA, and she was brought on board to be a climate adviser and former Michigan governor, Jennifer Granholm was also selected to lead the Department of Energy.

That's so interesting right now is that the Federal Reserve is actually holding off on rate hikes impart because this is the yield curve that they watch they didn't want to infer. Exactly, right. They were hoping for a steeping in. They're getting sort of the opposite end as you point out that three months ten-year curve is I think the only input in the New York Fed's recession model, which they do on a monthly average basis. So to see an inverted really raises that risk of recession up into that. I think we'll probably see it in the mid to high twenty percent. For March at if it remains at these levels, and that doesn't sound like a slam dunk, but that's high as far as probability index goes above. I think twenty five to twenty eight percent, it's it's almost a slam dunk. At least according to history that you do see a recession in the next twelve months. I believe it is. So at least you're absolutely right. Everyone is watching that three months tenure very closely. Will a close inverted? I don't know. But it's looking pretty grim right now. It's interesting. You mentioned the Bank index Katie w Bank index and we've seen that across the board of if you have the right pressure with a net interest margin, which is obviously a key driver for these banks. But also the the week capital markets activity. We saw weak fourth quarter capital markets coming into the banks, and then UBS warned of a very tough first quarter. So it's really tough for the banks to make any kind of case here. Yeah, I agree. And from sort of macro standpoint, I think it's hard to make a really bullish case for the stock market writ large when the banks are are week like this again, you're looking and they might be down eight to ten percent on the week. I mean, that's that's a nasty turn of events for banks. Even when the general market rallied yesterday. So there is a lot of pessimism here. And there's a question is it too much especially because right now. Minutes ago. He got US existing home sales data showing that it surged nearly twelve percent the fastest pace the biggest gain since twenty fifteen. I just raising a question that perhaps things aren't as bad as they seem depends. What you home in on? Right. Exactly. I mean that is definitely a bright spot those home sales data, and that was sort of like two seconds because it hasn't been for the month prior. Right. Right. So maybe some of these lower yields are working their way into the real estate market, which would be. I mean, I think we obviously everyone was kind of bracing for this nasty. I quarters worth of data any sign that you see that it's bleeding into now into March data and further I think it's sort of definitely offsets overwhelms that impulse to buy because the fed is on hold. It goes back to that initial kneejerk reaction. He saw after the fed meeting which was to sell stocks people taking well, what does the fed? No, we don't. No. The answer's probably nothing. But, but it does make you wonder, you know, with the fed on hold if the data's still keeps coming in week. It's enough to make you nervous for. Sure. That's I mean, we're still looking at a stock market. That's up thirteen percent year to date. I mean a blockbuster year so far so it's kind of this pushing pull it's not too surprising. See some volatility, I think if you look at the you can look at the fundamentals two ways the economy and the the companies in the stock market, and then sort of the investor fundamentals and with unemployment as low as is job growth good.
