Trump vs. Biden on the environment—here’s where they stand
"His plan says he do that by investing and disadvantaged communities holding polluters accountable. I talked to Michelle Roberts with the Environmental Justice Health Alliance about this, and she has a long history with Biden because she's actually from Delaware, his home state. And she says Historically, Biden wasn't always Overly supportive when it came to dealing with polluters like DuPont over communities like hers. Hey, was a filibuster for the political economy that was running the great state of Delaware. Does that make sense? But Robert says she's met with Biden since and she thinks his views have evolved. She supports him, but it's going to be important, she says. If he's elected to hold him accountable for all the things that he's promising to do now. NPR's
Climate Change Is A Top Campaign Issue At Least For Democrats
"This year climate change is a top campaign issue at least for Democrats. Yesterday, we looked at president trump's record. On the issue today, we'll explore toe Biden's plan, which is the most ambitious climate proposal. Any presidential candidate has ever laid out. We've got NPR's Nathan rods and NPR's Jeff Brady both of our climate team with us. Hi, guys good morning. So. Let's just the obviously our Joe Biden and Donald Trump do not exactly agree on climate? Change. Absolutely yeah I think that's a fair way to put it. President trump repeatedly rejects climate science and generally he depicts regulations to address climate. Change is bad for the economy and bad for jobs Joe Biden calls climate change existential threat to our health, our economy, our national security, the whole thing but he's also trying to frame it right now as an opportunity you know when? Donald. Trump thinks about climate change he thinks hoax. When I think about I think jobs. Good paying union opposite put. To work. Building a stronger more. Climate resilient nation I mean nate. That sounds great. But has he laid out a plan for how he would actually make that happen. Yes, and it is a lot Hewitt invest money for one climate. Change is part of his economic recovery plan for the pandemic. But he's also says he'll do executive actions right? Other Gate. He says he's GONNA re enter the Paris climate agreement and put the US back in the global climate conversation He's talking about conserving land for biodiversity stopping offshore drilling in the Arctic. Methane from existing oil and gas tell me when you want me to stop. But he's also putting money towards climate adaptation measures to make communities more resilient to sea level rise flooding hurricanes fires. You know the type of things we've experienced over the last few months and he's also promising massive investments in green energy and infrastructure. This is where the. Jobs part of what he's promising comes in. So that means more solar more wind high speed rail, electric car chargers all with the goal of zeroing out carbon pollution from our electrical sector by twenty, thirty five and making the country carbon neutral. So it's contributing anymore to climate change by twenty fifty. And I mean I know a lot of campaigns I mean the rhetoric is aspirational, right but even so I mean by twenty fifty shifting the entire US economy to be carbon neutral to sounds like a massive undertaking is he going to be able to accomplish that Jeff? You know most of the experts I've talked with thinking is possible. The plan includes a lot of executive actions. The Biden says, he would take right away some of the nature mentioned. It also this plan requires new laws passed by Congress to create policies for meeting that overall goal. Now, that's going to require a democratic majority in the Senate most likely I talked with Scott Siegel. He's a partner with the law firm Bracewell, which represents a lot of energy clients including fossil fuel companies, and you can imagine that they have a lot at stake care. He thinks guidance climate plan is realistic. He says, it includes both regulations and incentives for people. In Industries to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and I think when a plan has both and doesn't rely only on the carrot or the stick, it's a sign of maturity in approaching these issues. Siegel likes that it leaves room for some fossil fuels with carbon offsets and capture, and he points out that the electric power sector is already on its way to meeting that interim 2035 call some of those companies in utilities are setting net zero carbon goals all on their own. Yeah, and that's an important point. I talked to Karl Frisch who worked at the US Department of Energy under three administrations including trump's she's now at the Rocky Mountain Institute you know and I asked her if she thinks it could all be done by Biden alone if he gets elected. No. So to get where we need to go on climate in the United States to reduce emissions and build a sustainable economy, it takes action by the executive branch action by Congress. And action by state leaders, city leaders, business leaders on the ground, and she says, you know a lot of these actions are already happening at the local level. So a Biden administration would be smart to try to build on that existing momentum. So something we hear president trump attack Joe Biden on a lot is fracking fracking for natural gas. The president alleging that Joe Biden wants to ban it. Let's just clear this up Jeff Does Joe Biden WanNa. Ban fracking. No, he doesn't want to ban fracking. He has repeatedly said that he would not ban all fracking just new fracking on federal land and when trump says that it's aimed at voters and energy producing swing states like Pennsylvania, which actually has very little federal land but that's still a point of contention for for Biden, with mini climate activists who say the country should stop all fracking and keep all fossil fuels in the ground to slow climate change. So. What about the politics of climate change you know I mean we know what the facts are that it is happening that humans have contributed to it as well. But what about the politics of climate change because we know for Republicans it's an incredibly divisive issue where do Democrats stand on Biden's proposals? Well, polling indicates a majority of registered voters in the US view climate change as a real threat to the country, and when you look at Republicans climate change is actually a lot less divisive you get. But in terms of Democrats a recent poll by Pew found that more than two-thirds of Joe Biden supporters sit climate change is very important to them. So Biden's. Plan is not as ambitious as what some Progressive Democrats want to see it is not the green new deal despite what the president repeatedly says, but it is more ambitious than what Joe Biden had initially proposed. So for example, his plan now includes an environmental justice component which would aim to address the fact that people of color are disproportionately affected by pollution climate change and have been for a long time. His plan says he'd do that by investing in disadvantaged communities pulling polluters accountable I talked to Michelle Roberts with the Environmental Justice Health Alliance about this, and she has a long history with Biden because she's actually from Delaware, his home state and she says historically. Always overly supportive when it came to dealing with polluters like dupont over communities like hers he was a Filibuster for the political economy that was running the great state of Delaware. Does that make sense BA- Roberts says she's met with Biden since and she thinks his views have a she supports him but it's going to be important. She says if he's elected to hold them accountable all the things that he's promising to do now. NPR's nate wrought and NPR's Jeff. Brady, thank you for your reporting. Thank you. Thank

"And until Corona virus vaccine there is risk will be living with the virus for foreseeable future. So that is what what came out of that phone call today between NBA players NBA owners NBA executives. Mona posted a story about the fact that the NBA some NBA facilities are reopening and. It sounds like Ramona has been saying this has been beating the when she's been on with us. It sounds like the bubble concept is not gaining a lot of traction with the players. Michelle Roberts who runs the player's Association in Ramona's story is quoted as saying? Are we going to armed guards around the hotel? That sounds like an incarceration to me and so I think that if the if the NBA. If you're one of those people who was hanging all your hopes the bubble you should start looking outside the bubble for solutions because I think the NBA has started to well. Although one of the things I saw John. Is that the bubble is not were tending to think of it as some sort of Impermeable Wall and the reality is that they are considering a bubble plan where you're not completely contained inside one biosphere. Fear that that family will be able to be there so let me let me let me ask you the questions that Ramon asks in her piece. Okay what happens if a team staffer goes out to get a slice of pizza and becomes infected though. That sounds like Ramona question. Why do I have the answer to that? What if an a symptomatic family member or significant other came to visit and spread the virus if the Honor Code is too lax but police state is too draconian. What's the point of the bubble and according to Robert? She said the players were like well. I don't know if it's worth to be away from my family for that long. We could do that. And then what happens when one or two players test positive after the isolation do we shut it down? So she's arguing against the concept not to get to a place where they could use it but it doesn't sound like she's she's a big fan of it yet. Does Robert Michelle Robert Michelle Roberts right. Yeah by the way the other the other interesting thing is that because because NBA revenue is in part derived from fans and because the revenue is on a split basis with players. That the pie isn't as big for the remainder of this year. That the League is GonNa take a bigger hit and so the pie isn't going to be as big right correct.

ReadyUp is Connecting the Esports and Gaming Community
"Youth sports is a fancy word for gaming, which is a fancier word for video games. But please put away your preconceived notion or stereotypes of what you think video games because the budding business is raking in millions Rodrick lamantia is a serial entrepreneur in media startups. He was part of an entertainment that was sold to news corps for six hundred fifty million dollars back in two thousand five but recently alimony has turned his attention to the east sports world. He's partnered with some of the legends and gaming to create ready up ready up as a platform that connects gamers at all levels of play alimony and ready up are betting big on east sports this past fall. They raised two million in capital tonight. A conversation about the future of sports east sports Rodrick alimony is in town for the world conference. He's my guest in studio Rodrick, thanks for being here. Thanks for having me. First of all you were at the conference. And all of it was about transforming the world. I think that the thread was blurred. Correct. You spoke at the conference. What did you tell people? Yeah. Well, we were talking about partnerships and experiences one of the things that we're doing it ready up is we've partnered with the NBA players association and one of the experiences that were in the process of executing shortly his for fans to be able to engage some of the top NBA stars who are huge gamers and essentially connect with them through through game. I can't even believe that that would be. I just flashed back to me being fifteen years old and thinking, I could play Glen Rice. Glad right. It's that's crazy. That is the future this opportunity to do all these different experiences with real people in a virtual world was interesting about the process. We connected with the MVP a in July or August of last year. And we had a really great conversation with Michelle Roberts. He's the executive director of her coach was we realize gaming wasn't gonna be the pet rock that was here to stay thinks that ninety nine percent of the basketball players play video games. And a funny story, she told us she was out with some of the night, and after dinner, she was telling them mail, you guys. Go home don't get into trouble. And she said we guy's gonna do. And they said we're going to go we're gonna do some fortnight. And she said, where's that club? Located. Fortnight leads us a good place to start because east sports has has been on the forefront of of our culture for the last couple of decades now, but fortnight has brought it to a new level. You're starting to see it permeate culture in a way that it's like you said, it's no longer the pet rocket is the rock. Do you need games? Like fortnight and experiences like that that come along to get the business of east sports into a higher level of visibility. Fortnight was great for the industry on a couple levels. One of the interesting things about fortnight was you actually saw a lot of girls and women playing it. But actually more girls I'd say at the high school level traditionally video games as being focused on, you know, males eighteen to thirty four. This was a really interesting crossover. At least in the kind of the more hardcore concerned more hardcore gaming side of the business. When you look at mobile games there. Obviously massively populated by women games like candy crush inside. But this was a game. Yeah. And what he why why what is it about fortnight from your estimated that that made it so popular. Well, you know, it was kind of the combination of Minecraft meets I came called div, which was the first really popular battle royale that kind of came more mass market the growth curve on both of these games was tremendous. I mean, literally zero to several tens of millions of users in a very short period of time. Perfect example fortnight the next game that came along Gwen called apex legends. Which is another battle royale published by EA that believe they went from zero to forty million in literally weeks as opposed to month. So it's amazing. The think about the victory right now. And you as someone who reading your background, you got your starting starting media startups. How do you get from there to east sports? I've been kind of working in startup since nineteen ninety five I was working at an ad agency on the media side. It's a really fun story. We had Microsoft is account and literally with. Public eight months before windows ninety five launch. I remember that you're old enough to remember the windows lunch was huge. They needed a an online planned back then online met getting online through or prodigy or CompuServe and no one really cared about it. And so it was hey, give it to the young twenty something year olds who care about that stuff. We're dealing with TV, and we're dealing with print, and we launched when designing five on the internet. I met Infoseek which was the first search engine to ever do putting ad banners with keywords, which Google obviously since I've absolutely perfect. That's the heart and soul of it. Now. Right. Yeah. And the crazy part was Infoseek actually recruited me became the first sales higher there that wasn't an executive. What did you learn about that experience that you keep with you several years later with ready up persevere when you're kind of on the cutting edge. I mean, literally four sixty eight by sixty ads were considered a crazy new ad unit. Which is something that we're like thinking, whatever, you know, it took time it didn't happen overnight. It took. God probably six to nine months, and you just had to persevere when you're working in startups and subsequent startups after that. And even the one ready up. Do you have to remind people around you might be new to that business that it takes time that it's not something that's an overnight flash in the pan. Even even if there is success. Absolutely. It's hard. You're the wise old man in the. Thanks for calling me. It's one of those things where it doesn't happen overnight. And you get a lot of nose into lot education after left Infoseek fortunate. We got acquired by Disney who had those back in the internet heydays when he worked at entertainment, I dot com. We were kind of more hardcore gaming focused. We weren't doing a lot of ad revenue with the video game publishers who are spending all their money in print so which just a function of time and working my ass off and suddenly boom exploded. And the long story short was we took the company private at twenty six million. And we ended up selling to News Corp for six hundred fifty million mazing, and for you to be a young entrepreneur to be in a position where you're seeing that kind of money. What does it do to you? Because you're not getting the Sixers a lot that goes into getting six hundred fifty million. But but the wind to be a startup an entrepreneur the win on on getting that cell has been huge Infosec. We went public literally within public. I don't even remember year or two had been there. I mean had gone from making eighteen thousand dollars a year living in San Francisco, which is just ridiculous. I remember go out and spend forty dollars a night. And be like, oh, man. I'm done. I'm done to working at a company that went public, and it's completely life-changing. It's very life changing. And you know, it's one of those things where you know. It's probably live arrogant when in your twenties when you've come into that sort of success.
