The Unfortunate Casualties of an Anti-Biotech Attack
"Today is a really special podcast is an amazing guests that we have that takes us back to the time when the tenor towards genetic engineering was very different back around the turn of the Millennium I. Guess is the turn of the century two two. It was a little bit different field before the Internet really took over the defamation of scientists and career assassination, and those opposed to technology took on other means to solve their problems. At least to. Agitate and we'll talk about that today in an event from two thousand and one and we'll talk more about that in a second speaking with doctor, Toby Bradshaw A. He's a professor emeritus in the Department of Biology at the University of Washington and thank you for joining me today. I really appreciate you being toby. It's a pleasure to be here. Yeah this is really an interesting point in history and I remember when this happened. And in a kind of kind of fell into the background a little bit, but let's set the stage if we go back to two thousand and one. What kind of work were you doing in Merrill Hall at the University of Washington. Since the mid nineteen nineties, I have been working on the genetic adaptation and growth in hybrid poplars. They're fast growing tree. News all around the world, but heavily in the Pacific northwest up to produce. Hebrew products primarily so I was involved with. The early molecular genetics research, including M Gino Mapping. And ultimately identifying traits that were responsible for faster growth, which I had a basic interest in, but which of course the temp companies had a commercial innocent. And where you're working with genetic engineering, or were you really just dealing with hybrids myself? I was only producing hybrid poplars through traditional cross pollination methods that have been used for centuries in in poplars around the world I was also collaborating with Steve Strauss. At Oregon State University on some preliminary work to genetically engineered trees, four different growth form to produce more would in a smaller land area, but I myself had never still have never a genetically engineered a tree. And really the facility that you were working at. It isn't on the campus, right? It's it's the center for Urban Culture and what are the kinds of things that were being done there well. It is technically on the UW. Campuses at the very periphery separated from the main campus by the Union Bay Natural Area A place for I enjoyed bird every day on my walk to work, so that was a nice interlude. Of every day, but the other kinds of work that we're going on at the Center for Urban Horticulture included a restoration ecology primarily for wetland restoration, understanding a plant succession after the eruption of Mount Saint Helen's in nineteen eighty was conservation work for rare plants, going on so rare plants in Washington be propagated for reintroduction into the wild, and that was a particular focus of my colleague I'm single ride card who you will hear more about later and the graduate students in Undergrad who doing their own research, their work on a wide range of topics, including for example how to? Have, urban gardens produce more food for people who otherwise might not be able to afford a fresh vegetables, so it was. A typical horticulture center I, think it most universities where there was a mix of basic research applied research in outreach up to the public in the form of extension. And, so it doesn't sound like this was the you know the the center of the universe of Monsanto or something I mean this sounds like a really practical extension oriented center that had significant roles in community, and and and even just in the regional agriculture's that's. Is that more what it was about yes? Oh, the University of Washington is not a land grant university. It's not an agricultural school. School, in the focus at the UW has always been a basic research and the center. For urban horticulture included in its mission, some applied research and quite a bit of extension and outreach up to the public, so in that way it was different from much of the rest of campus in its mission, but by no means is the University of Washington on any kind of center for plant biotechnology now. It isn't now. Yeah. Good basic biology know basic science and a lot of really good plant people there, but it's Can you give me a little bit of sense? Outside the University of like two, thousand, zero, two, thousand and one, what was the environment like a genetic engineering in your perspective and in your area of the country? What was really happening? Then in that environment, it was an interesting time. The first genetically engineered crops that were planted on a wide scale, had only been in production for less than a decade, so as a relatively new technology on the commercial sector, perceiving though scientists and people who keep up with science for familiar with the progress of genetic engineering. How it was eventually applied in agriculture, get caught a lot of the general public by surprise, and as everyone who's familiar with plant biotechnology knows that can sometimes lead to misunderstandings. And worse at the the first inkling that I had that anyone might be opposed to the kinds of research that I was doing was just a couple of years before in nineteen, ninety nine, when Seattle hosted the World Trade Organization meetings and I had some of my. Poplars. That were growing in pots out in the back forty behind the. Urban Horticulture. Cut Down by vandals during those WTO protests mean. As often happened to these kinds of things at my mind. The damage done to my plants was fairly minimal. Because these are poplars. Cut Him off. They just re grow the we. That's how we actually propagate them through cutting, so it had zero effect on me, but at the same time they went through and cut down all of the older seedlings that a colleague of mine was growing for re, vegetating streamsides in Alder. Don't re sprout after being cut-backs. Again it was one of these ready fire. Aim moments for an activist who really didn't understand. Even the species of trees that they were looking at i. mean did a lot more damage to someone else's research than to mind we might. Research was essentially funded by the wall critics,
Scientists study volcanic lightning
"Opening we're just a couple days away from the fortieth anniversary of mount St Helens nineteen eighty eruption N. as como as Ryan Harris tells us all these years later the mountain is still teaching us lessons there's a lot of learning at mount Saint Helens says Dr Seth Moran the scientist in charge of the U. S. geological survey's cascades volcano observatory who tells me there's still a lot being gleaned from the main event and the eruptions that happened in the weeks and months after to understand the Russian dynamics how the cloud evolved questions right now people are getting into about the generation of volcanic lightning and there was no lighting that was observed and reported and we can see some deposits in a pretty good idea of the timing of some of those deposits relative to say when volcanic lightning was was being generated this other some interesting ideas that are starting to be developed about when volcanic lightning occurs an interruption sequence and what it means when it starts happening in terms of I'm gonna bash in the air how far to go in and things like that Moran says the big lesson though is still the lateral blast in landslide caused by the eruption which broke trees like they were matchsticks or burned everything in its path because of the hot gases that escaped not to mention burying much of the area in deep debris and sending a mud flow down the North Fork of the total river the landslide was what took the pressure off of the magma that intruded into the volcano and I generate the lateral blast and it was certainly appreciated that the bulging of the north flank that was moving out at a rate of five or six feet a day that that was producing a flank that was unstable and it was certainly understood that rockfalls landslides avalanches were in the future if nothing happens but it wasn't appreciated how big that website it wasn't how discontinuous it was gonna it was gonna be Amaran says since then geologists have learned a lot about what deposits from that kind of a landslide looks like around volcanic areas and I've taken that lesson and applied it to volcanoes around the world and it's now much more appreciated by the volcano community that landslides are part of what volcanoes can do and that that is something that in certain situations where you've gotten unstable flank that's obviously building outwards that that's a very real thing that needs to be taken into account when doing hazardous substance those hazard assessments are important because doctor Moran reminds me of something we should all keep in mind not only is mount St Helens still active but source several other cascade volcanoes including mount

"V. I'm just gonna get mad Bob is bathroom door and waited a you see what's coming like I feel like there should be a little bit of a shame associated with it especially if you're mount Saint Helens for god sakes in there I mean come on now back to everybody's favorite middle man the the Michael Bloomberg some of the ones that came out over the weekend and continue find common with my some some I can't defend summer just stunning to me that is set up and the question really is are these Bloomberg whoppers gonna take down Michael Bloomberg or like when trump was it just on a roll with comments she's bleeding from wherever you we can go down the list of stuff that he said in effect them he just kept going up in the polls is Bloomberg the democratic answer trump where well nothing stops them some people are comparing Ms obviously the democratic version of trump but I would argue the trump think we what about drop but I think the tribe is a little bit more empathetic than Hey what is our guest from some got more personality mail me I you're going to see it tomorrow the debate word when trump did it in debates and you're like holy smokes but people do you still like I would mind having a beer with that guy for a lot of people trump yeah yeah I don't think you think that would bloom though I don't I can't sell anything right but maybe you just explained it the best tribe has an elitism about a make no mistake yeah yeah you know there are a lot about Arlene he's like I prefer limos but it doesn't it the trick of trump is always that while he's saying that he's getting Harley guys to go yeah that's wrong but he's entertaining I think part of it is that he has fallen it like you said you want to have a beer with him I think there is a part of him though or maybe it's because his kids maybe it's because he surrounds himself with certain people there a little bit more relatable Bloomberg I don't see any of that I mean he's buying his way through what he's buying who we serve earning himself with at least trump has like personal friends and family that he is closer to this is in a car crash your next year in our care what do you make of all this Bloomberg Allah below good afternoon good show I think I think he is not like drop is it does start he just said you know drop is much more apathetic I bookmarked it all the people so this guy they feel exactly the same way they have absolutely no respect for a plumber or electrician and show them it just don't get it just just this so what working with your hands John Kerry so don't don't pay attention in school you know when I react how demeaning to we're going to put their lives on the line to defend our country and this guy is called it basically John I'm it it's just it's it's absolutely mind boggling and and I don't appreciate truck would say yeah I would go on the job site and I would try to make sure she incident which isn't doing that no no no what he's getting this long dark state I don't that's all I know is I think you're right I think that's I think he's right tomorrow's read important somebody just don't be surprised to Bloomberg skips the debates I would want to whatever you think you know about Bloomberg you don't really know anything about you haven't seen them tomorrow for a lot of the country is their first chance to see the guy and I think what they're going to find out is they don't love them yeah he's got a bit of a whiny voice he's he's smaller than you might think he's there is there is there is like the big mouth in the bar which trump kind of is sometimes yeah and then there is the big mouth in the classroom which is what Bloomberg has going and I don't think people love that one now but I think trump has this ability like crystal just mentioning there that he has the ability to relate or pop kind of in certain himself to the everyday man in terms of him actually respecting them you know military first responders hard working you know middle class like trump think what you want about the comments that he says but he goes out there he talks to them he respects them and I don't think he undermines them like Bloomberg was kind of going with his farmers because of it I I would I don't think you'd catch tribe saying a comment to that degree I he said enough I mean gore's Cephei for god sakes I look at that is entertainment nine is all that is I again I think we're all better off for Bloomberg being in this thing tomorrow I'm much more interested in it because he's there than if he wasn't there I'll be like oh god we're gonna slog through another damn debate bottle of lies tired talking about climate change which is all the same stuff now it in because you think is the guy standing right there that everybody's talking about the let's get it all you did all the dams are going to gang up on yes yeah that's what I when the question is does he how does he push back we've already seen in pushing back on Bernie I think this Bernie Bloomberg wars great I we struck would have a little more fun with rumored for example I always call it a mini Mike but apple Mike the farmer I'd like to pay now one on deck sign you twenty Mister president about Bloomberg just call Mike the farmer I guarantee you that likely well farmer Mike's fine however but I I would make much more of that that has been made so far I will take a break when we come back trump has done some things today my question for you is would you have done them he's pardon the former forty Niners owner he's pardoned a former New York's police commissioner and he's commuted the sentence of an Illinois governor would you have done any and or all of those we'll talk about it we come back right here in RKO wakil Boston.

"Twenty three. Yeah. It's a couple dozen people. I think it's you know, they say they still think it's probably gonna go a little higher. They say all twenty three victims now have been identified and they're hoping that it's not gonna go anymore. But the youngest victim was six years old. I mean brutal. You just look at this entire towns. Just completely. It was crazy. Tornadoes are I I've lived all over the country. I I lived in Seattle area when mount Saint Helen's went off. You know as long as you're not living on the mountain or where a lava lava can flow. I've not lived in California earthquakes and mudslides. I've lived I've lived through an earthquake before scare the hell out of ya. I think tornadoes are the worst. You'd never know whether coming right? There's not 'cause like hurricanes are a big thing. But you know, we lived in Florida, and, you know, hurricanes were three times if you at least have a warning, and it can be very devastating. But at least you have warned the there's especially when they come at night a tornado coming at night. I mean, you don't even have any more close to an opportunity to do anything about it. He just hunker down and hope and pray, and you know, it's all you can do. They're so scary. My kids are so afraid of because of the tornado sirens will go off probably once a year. Near our house. Sometimes they've gone off. I think three times in a season and scares the hell out of the kids. Just scares the hell out of do you have like separate shelter type of situation. We have one we have one in the house. But it's not a, you know, it's not like a bomb shelter, but we can go underneath the house, which is where you're supposed to go. But it's it's terrifying. It's terrifying. People who have built shelters because I looked into shelter. And I was like, you know, build one right outside the house. They said don't build it outside of the house because if you build it outside of the house, you will go in one time, and then you'll sit there, and you wait maybe two times, but you're gonna get wet going out of the house going into the shelter. And then what you do is. You're like, well, you know, what we'll wait until it gets really bad. Yeah. And then it's too late. You know, it's interesting the documentary twister that many shows the idea that you could just hold onto a pipe in the middle of a field as a five tornado. Sure. Not actually the case. Nah. Actually the case. Now, I know following it with ping pong balls. Well, that's okay. You can definitely okay? Okay. Good. They in Philip Seymour. Hoffman is somehow still always there. But it just doesn't seem like it's one of those things that necessarily is a is a good idea. They they're talking to a couple who was hit by a tornado like this several years ago survived it, and they were saying that we that's what we did. We just tried to hold onto something. And it doesn't matter. How are you onto it? It just takes you throws you across. And they actually were thrown in the air survived it, which is incredible. I mean, we think about it. You think of that the thing about tornados that are so difficult. We had those tornadoes a couple of years ago, they were really devastating that we talked about. And for those out there chanting global warming at their radios. There is no trend factors as slight decrease in the trend and the amount of hurricane Erika tornadoes that are hitting our country over the past hundred years. So that's a BS talking point in case you happen to be interested in that. But you you look at a town that is completely devastated and dozens. People die and then they showed drone footage. They zoom out and the streets right next door completely fine. Oh, it's crazy. Localized it can be. And honestly, you're you know, you're the number one defense against tornadoes is statistics. Because it's unlikely you're going to get hit by one. But if unless you live in Moore Oklahoma, but even if you live in Moore, Oklahoma. I mean, you know, your chances are low that you're going to get hit. But it seems to always get why it's a little teeny town why you'd always forms over moral Mahama. I when I went to see more when it was really devastated. The last time. We went out. And did you go with me still? No, I do not. So I went out, and we drove all night to get there to get supplies and water, and you know, everything else, and we got there and on one side of the street, complete and total devastation. Nothing was left. And my grandfather used to talk. He grew up in. I think and he said tornadoes used to come through. And he said they would the winds were so strong that they would drive straw and drive them into the telephone poles. And sides of barns would have straw sticking out of it. And I found that so hard to believe and understand growing up. And when I went to more it had taken the house across the street and made it into a pulp and sprayed right across the street sprayed. This whole side of this movie theater with this pulp that was somebody's life. Just a few minutes before and everything on that side of the street was fine, except it was covered in this two inches of pulp that was a house. I mean, it's incredible to see the power of these things. Yeah. More Oklahoma has been hit by. I mean depends on how you calculate major. Right. But since nineteen ninety nine they had one in one thousand nine hundred thirty six people injured five hundred eighty three then two thousand three had injured one hundred and thirty four two thousand ten had a tornado that killed two injured forty nine two thousand thirteen had a tornado that killed twenty four and injured two hundred twelve I think that's what I was. Yeah. That's probably the one you were that was I mean, I remember that one. But I mean, that's since one thousand nine nine four major tornadoes. Why why is the is giving you money why why leave more Oklahoma? Why again like look at this. You're talking how many I mean, I don't know the population of more of my head. But you're talking about sixty two people in twenty years, but died from tornadoes, but you have a tornado coming through. I mean, how many tornadoes have you had? I've never had a tornado. Oh, come anywhere in my town since we've lived here. I don't think that's I mean, there've been maybe not in your town. But in our area,.

"Back to January of two thousand eighteen where the headline reads Alaska earthquake fears grow for mount Saint Helens volcano eruption after eight point two magnitude quake triggered to NAMI warnings off the coast of Alaska spark spirit, would awaken America's most deadly volcano mount Saint Ellen. Aunt didn't. But it was sleeping deeply apparent. That was about as close as it came. I did go to the website volcanoes dot US dot gov in which they monitor things like volcano activity in the United States for mount Saint Helens and others and for every two week period. They give reports on here's how it read current volcano alert level normal current aviation color code green, therefore, and that's how it was all two weeks twenty six of them throughout the year. There was no threat of volcano eruption mount Saint Helen's. So it's a fail. Number two significant impact event. It's also fail. Roy two thousand eighteen LA explodes over butts wanna way. June fourth two thousand eighteen yes. And they have video of on impact -nificant for and it didn't impact. Yes. So that's. Fail. Now. Third one to get you mad props for the third one. Evan. Get to the third. I have a second candidate for my second. Alright. Alright meteor exploded over Greenland over again to two point one kilotonnes of energy to gun skirt event was an explosion over to they call that that it had an impact on. Did. But if it's that bad thing say meteor impacts, Greenland or explodes into Greenland. Here's my other question oven were these more significant than any year previously. Pretty standard kind of average. Yeah. Well, you know, these things do happen every, but but but nothing peaked up only one kilotonnes of energy released. That's that's significant. That's that's more than the atomic explosions back in nineteen forty five. So that's but okay. I don't think so we're like twenty kilotonnes Rochambeau bomb was fifteen kilotonnes. Aga sake was twenty Russia, right? Hey, bob. Good job. I know my so well that's zero. But then as St. was alluding to my third prediction was Croatia. Forty to one. Odds would win the World Cup. Close. Main close a fine of they they made it to the finals where really this is considered a shot. Very few people predicted this would happen. They're a relatively little country. Let's put it out put it in the context. There's a here's a how one paper described it essentially as a rule small countries do not play in the World Cup. Final only thirteen countries on earth ever made the final aside from these most recent participants of France and Croatia and only big countries have ever played for the Cup in the modern era. It's been over fifty years since there was a final that didn't feature one of the following Brazil, Germany, Argentina Italy, Spain Netherlands or France. So if you went with any of those countries, you know, you'd be kind of playing the odds that yeah, it'd be getting it. But so to go with Croatia's pick is a pretty bolt pick. And I must say I paid attention to the world. I I'm sorry. The rest of the world. But I really did. And I was very excited as Croatia did a fantastic job in the in the tournament. And so if they won right up there right from prediction. Yeah. I agree. I agree. So I'll get myself up a point for them. All right. Do you want three new ones up two thousand nineteen? Here we go number one a photograph of a black hole. Oh, yes. It's gonna happen this year. Yeah. But drawn getting that. Graf the first photograph of a black hole. Actual photograph. We shall see. Number two, a universal flu vaccine will be ready for testing,.

"I got a little bit of smokey voice as any and all of us you here in the bay area. Alex stack is in the house. Thanks for being here. Alex, listen, if you have smoking voice, I really, oh, yeah. So Alex, south of San Francisco, I lived to the north. But again as part of the bay area, we're being blanketed by this tragedy has happened to the north in our hearts, go out to any and all that are suffering in the immediate area of paradise, California, the former paradise California, and the campfire that still still raging and we're feeling the the fallout literally from that is smoking ashes still making San Francisco by some measures single most air polluted city of its size on on the planet. Right now. It's reminiscent to me Alex is I was driving into the show today. And I'm looking at the. The shielded sun coming through. What would normally be a clear day of happen to live up in the north west when mount Saint Helen's blew jeez. Yeah. Well, I mean that was more. But it's just it's one of these cataclysmic events that happened that reminds us both a changing and fragile planet that were that were living on here. And part of the reason we're talking about this transformation of transportation, you know, number of the topics include congestion and safety, but one of them, of course, it's pollution. And obviously, this is this is a deal that's much more. A bigger or more in than anything that we can talk about every now, and then that that comes up I happened to be when I was driving in today. Also behind a hydrogen car. It was interesting again, hydrogen one of the forms of zero emissions where you can using hydrogen essentially water vapor coming out of the back, drip, drip, drip, drip, drip. That's her sound effects engineer. Working on it. Stacey is joining the show. Also, as she always does she is has to remove her her air mask to she'll be ready in just a minute here and her scuba system as she came. Yeah. Writes her bikes through the city, and we're reminded also that it was kind of a clever license plate on that hydrogen vehicle h tube tech, which you don't need the two because h I'd Rogen. But that's okay. You know, maybe he had each one with the other vehicle the. He had a hydrogen seven BMW that he had that play on the first one. Yeah. So, you know, when we talk about some of the changes that we're seeing obviously one of them is in power train is in a, you know, whether it's an internal combustion engine, and I'm gonna you know, the internal combustion engine that we're driving right now is amazing. It's so much more competent than the vehicle of old in their more powerful. And. Was an objection. It was as Stacy how you doing Charlie? I'm I'm doing fine. Save the air that you had to cut with a fork and knife. Yeah. Get your voice to it's an all of our voices is this is the thing. You know? It's like we say we're talking about the transformation of transportation people. We need to transform. This is just. It's really scary. It's really scary to think that this whole city is partially shut down that people are in their homes and sometimes their quality in their homes isn't even safe enough. And then Meanwhile, I think about the people in Hyderabad and Beijing who've lived through this or do it on a regular basis. Palese people complaining in a couple of things that you just touch on. Stacey. When you talked about shutdown school systems kids going to school from a sporting standpoint. This is the big. Game day weekend between the big game. Which is of course, Stanford and cow. They plan. No offer a couple of weeks and. Preserving their their athletes. Take what you've listened for them to make many people for sale, you know, travel plans et cetera et cetera. So so part of the reason we see a lot of the development in the things happening in this area is because of this weather that we have this not very extreme. We don't have that that hard winter. But now any of us that grew up or lived in the northern part of our country. You remember snow days? I mean, this is essentially smoke day. So your kids vital difference. Are fun snowball fights and snowmen and come inside and have been begin with the letter as but. Yeah, you're right. I wasn't waiting for the slam down on that. I was just saying it was disruptive easy to dunk on. Because this is this is hell scape. You know? I do have to say I had my mask on. It was a little tougher to ride. The jump didn't seem to be helping me out as much as I would have liked. But I was I was glad there weren't so many cars on the road. Not just for. Hey makes an easier path for me, but that's contributing to noticeable difference. Oh my gosh. Yeah. It's a it's I'd say less than a quarter of what it is normally. Which was a pleasant ride for me other than the air mask. You know? Well, the the the crazy reversal of things normal is it Stacy, and I were attending a an event transportation in Los Angeles and effectively leaving the cleaner air of Los Angeles to the dirtier air, San francis-. I was like oh my gosh. Can you imagine that we've come this far LA known for smog? The you know that just crushing people on a daily basis at for a long years of time. This was an occurrence and LA was fastly cleaner. In fact, this the the fills San Franciscans there were like, why are you going home? And I'm like 'cause I gotta do the show. And I gotta tell people we need to change because otherwise, they wouldn't know. I don't know if you've heard that was the bike ride long from Los Angeles. Or do you have a burning aluminum to know? I know I know five jumped bike flying along. Yes, I'm Brian. Let them lead them up relay style for me. Jump charged network. And don't think don't think that. I I didn't think about that. But it did make me take a pool. It have. I mean, I'm landing at two in the morning. Okay. It would be really because the flights are delayed. I was supposed to you know, because the you know, this was the single runway. Yeah. And so in fine fine. You know, but I would have been very easy for me to take my own personal Uber or lift. But instead, I was like no you can't do that don't be a hypocrite and go up there and get in the pool. And so there were three of us three single people getting dropped off, you know. So we're almost like a bus. None of which are running at two o'clock in the morning from SFO to SF. I believe Sam chance goes once an hour from that. But it was. Yeah. Every hour. So here's decisions that are being made in. And I made my decision was to fly into Oakland coming back from Los Angeles. Instead of San Francisco it was made some time ago. But just because again, sometimes if a flight is going to be delayed. It's one of the shorter or more local flights in in this case from the Los Angeles area to the the bay area. But it's an interesting these are all aspects, and of course, station ever geeked out because we'd spent you had been there. Two days. I spent a couple of hours at this LA commotion which is again talking about mobility in urban settings in how municipalities and regulatory agencies not only would the technologies change with all of this. We're talking about cars, and we're gonna we're gonna continue to do that. I wanna make sure everybody knows that. But the other aspect of the smoke is going to get into it. But of course, the conversation came up about the overall 'cause is again the extremes in climate. Climate change, and, you know, obviously, same California suffering through extremes in in any and all the fires in the tragedy with some of the things that happened recently wasn't necessarily may have started as been part of a forest fire described that way, but really became a community fire over time. And it's really too bad. And unfortunately, the other aspect of transportation that we will come up consistently in this show is how or what responsibility does personal transportation have in evacuating.
