Depending on your frame of mind, that is either an bizarrely morbid or entirely appropriate way to start a talk about climate action in the year 2022. Health, gate national park. In the town of naivasha, in the great river valley, in my home country, Kenya. Now, its name may not scream tourist trap, but believe me it is a beautiful part of the world and you should all try and visit sometime. For more importantly, it could play it has the potential to play a crucial role in the fight against global climate catastrophe. The IPCC, the most recent IPCC reports are clear. Humanity has left cutting emissions too late. Any realistic path to avoiding unacceptable levels of warming now requires us to not only drastically cut emissions at least having them by 2030, but also undertake an equally massive effort to remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere at an accelerating rate. Now, let's be clear, greenhouse gas removal is not and can not be an excuse for continuing to emit just as installing seat belts and airbags is not an excuse for deliberately ramming your car into a wall. Indeed, current estimates suggest that even with drastic emissions reductions, the world will need to be removing between 5 and 16 billion tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere every single year by 2050. Now to give you a sense of the scale of that, the low end of that range, 5 billion tons, that's bigger than the size of the global petroleum industry in 2020. So let's not kid ourselves that carbon removal at anywhere close to the scale that we will need in order to survive is some sort of easy way out. It is going to be damn difficult to do. So how do we do it? Well, the first and most familiar measures will be interventions such as reforestation and landscape restoration. Essentially giving mother nature the time and space to heal herself. In addition, we can increase the amount of carbon held in our soils to the widespread application of biochar and enhanced weathering of chemically suitable rocks. We estimate that in Africa alone, something like a 100 million to 680 million additional tons of carbon dioxide could be drawn from the atmosphere using these types of methods. However, they do require a lot of land, a lot of water and a lot of other natural resources that may limit the extent to which we can scale them. Moreover, they are subject to some of the feedback loops from the climate change that we are already experiencing, such as more frequent and intense wildfires. And all of that means we are going to need to supplement them with technologies that accelerate and amplify natural processes to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Enter the members of my new favorite boy band. Dak, becks, and bikers. These are a set of engineered approaches that use physical chemical and biological processes to gather and concentrate carbon dioxide from the atmosphere before safely sequestering it. Usually underground. As more people run the climate math, you're seeing growing levels of interest and investment in these technologies. With billions of dollars already being committed to early pilots and installations in various parts of the world, particularly in Europe and North America. But the reality is they have a very long way to go. To date, engineered removals around the world have accounted for something like a 100,000 tons of carbon dioxide removed. Total. To get to the multi-billion billion ton scale, we're going to need by 2050 is going to take a truly epic process of exponential scaling. Probably means we need to get to something. If we want to have a realistic shot at it, we need to get to something like a 100 million tons per year by 2030. For those of you running the calculators, that's a thousandfold increase in less than a decade. And guess what? We will have to continue that insane rate of growth for another two decades after that. And here's the really bad news. Anything close to that level of scaling of this industry in the places where it's currently being piloted presents some really difficult climate action tradeoffs. For that, let me take the example of dak.

"Dedicated to rally, where we put all of our content there, and occasionally we crop up here as well in the auto sport channel. When there's a big thing to talk about, which there is today because we've sent our man Tom Howard to rally safari. It's going to be a wonderful event in Kenny around 6 of this season. The world rally championship sees a return to an event that was a regular from 1972 to 2002 back after a 19 year hiatus, though, and Tom welcome along to the podcast. If you can just tell us, you know, about your journey. Oh, we keep hearing about his travel chaos in the newspapers. And what it's like where you are and where you're working from, just set the scene for us. Firstly, we've got to say thanks for this opportunity to be able to actually go to cover an event like this. So a lot of strings have been pulled for us to be here in the first place. So those people that know who they are should receive some thanks. But firstly, yeah, it's quite a long journey. I haven't had any sleep for 24 hours. So I'm very tired, but yeah, so flew out from Heathrow to Cairo last night. And then got a plane from Cairo through the night to Dar es Salaam in Tanzania. And then got another flight from Tanzania this morning to Nairobi in Kenya. So I landed in Nairobi about 8 a.m. Kenya time. So then we had a two and a half hour road trip to naivasha, which is where the rally is based. So I've seen quite a lot today. Some things I quite confronting, some things quite spectacular. But yeah, it's been a bit of a long journey, but we are here and we are here to cover safari rally. I can see you're working from some sort of, it looks like an office. I mean, you're on your own in some sort of room. What facility do they build in the middle of the desert? So we've got like we're actually in a wildlife resort near Lake naivasha, which is a holiday destination, so we say it's quite a touristy area. Lots of hotels, lots of safari trips that you can go on. So we're in a sort of a wildlife resort where they've constructed all these temporary buildings to house all the rally cars this weekend. Near the town of nova. So it's a small town, not two hours north of Nairobi. But we're in quite a extensive metal structure with a tarpaulin roof and I've cheekily nabbed the FIA office, which is a little bit quieter than the media center to be able to do this podcast. So thanks to Vera, if I media delegate. So let me borrow her office. So we should be doing this in vision because your Wi-Fi connection is rock solid. It looks great. It's nice and crisp. It's better than when you have 5 minutes down the road is who sets all this up before we actually get into talking about the rally just for our listeners who might be interested in like the infrastructure of a rally event in safari rally Kenya. Is this the FIA that build all this or WRC and the promoters? And the safari rally organizers. I think a point that we should make here is this is a really serious event here. This is the biggest sport and event they have in Kenya. It's bigger than any football event or marathon or anything else. So everything is pulled into this to make it a spectacular as possible. And I have to say, being a hugely impressed with the Internet connectivity and the service park and everything so far. I've had my own personal driver, take me around everywhere today. So called Nelson, who should get a shout out. He was a very, very nice fella. So yeah, this is a serious event. The president will be here tomorrow of Kenya to oversee it. And this is a key part of his sort of manifesto, I guess. He was a very key part of his plan to bring this event back to Kenya as it has been a way for a while, obviously came back last year. But this was all a very key part of their sort of political strategy because this is not only a sporting event. It's all about tourism. And it has such a long tradition, as you said, at the beginning there. So it's a very, very special event for Kenya. Colin McRae's last win was there. It's been won by Richard burns and Tommy McKinnon. It did come back last year, but a kind of a legendary event for those people who might not be super into their rally. What's it like for speed and the location and the kind of surfaces they'll be on. So this will be one of the toughest on the calendar and this will be even tougher than it was last year as the crews have been saying today in the press conference. But these are high speed gravel stages, very open stages. So you're out in the middle of now where really lots of wildlife so they'll be giraffes, buffalo, elephants, zebra, so the crews will come across all sorts of different animals on there and their ways through the stages, obviously they try to clear the stages before they run through to make sure it's as clear as possible, but you can't really legislate for any zebras running around at the erratic. But yes, they're very fast, open stages. And the graph is quite soft and sandy in places. So the car is actually sort of dig in quite a lot. And if you're not careful, you can actually get stuck as calorie roughen Perry did last year. So you get stuck in this sort of quicksand like gravel, which is called fresh fish. Is the local term. And so it's quite an interesting combination of you can not go flat out on this event. There are too many areas where you need to be careful and preserve the cars. It's so rough in places. So it's really going to be a case of who measures it the best in terms of going flat out when they know they can, but also making sure the car is safe and healthy. So you reach the finish. It's going to be a real rally of attrition. Yeah, organizers know what they're doing in terms of clearing the way. But how do they clear the way of the animals and to try and keep them clear of the cars? In the old days, every crew used to have its own helicopter run ahead, but they don't have like these days. So there is a helicopter that goes through and a double zero car, which goes through to make sure the stage is clear before anyone comes in. But one of the tools that some of the teams run to sort of help scare wildlife away so they don't have any trouble with they run a special flashing light system on their headlights. So they're constantly flashing, which is hopefully which hopes to catch the eye of any animal and sort of warn them that there's a car coming. So there's some little clever little tools I have, but largely speaking, there isn't a great deal you can do, but the organizers do the best I can to make sure that there is no dramas. The last rally out was a warm one, but what are the conditions going to be like for the drivers and inside the cars, these new hybrid cars? Yes, so in Sardinia, they ran some tweaked modifications to the cars to combat this increased temperatures in the cockpit. Sardinia was incredibly hard, 40°. We're not looking like we're going to exceed 25 here in Kenya. So it's going to be a lot easier, shall we say on the cruise, not no less tough, but the temperatures won't be as high. There is also a threat of rain on every day. So which could also throw a spanner in the works. So yeah, the conditions are very mixed. It's going to be a real challenge for all of them. Kelly Robin perra arrives there with a 50 point lead over Thierry Neville. Tell us about the form going into this event. So yeah, Kelly obviously had a quiet event last time in Sardinia, which was going to be a tough one for him to open the road, always going to be very difficult for him there. With the way that the roads are, so dusty and tight and compact..

"The thing. Nobody promised anybody listeners. Podcast anything would be like current. These are not listen. I'm catching up. On stuff and books write books are talk about. I'm not winningham. Youtubers is out here. Doing the whole like. I read ten bucks this month in these are the new releases bowl by i am behind everybody else in terms of reading Mike have you heard of the three. The three body problem which is like both shirley g of books but also the first book in the series of three books negative. What is that. This shit is so super. Super popular chinese series author. She jains you It's like hard science fibro and it's it is. I don't know one of those books that you know what it was. I think this book had a moment because obama. Read that shit. I think obama put it on a reading list. You know where shea league. I think he was like three body problem and basketball things might have been on on the obamas do forbes. Listen what we do obama's list say obama non naivasha shout baba. But we're shouting for sure this but yeah could tell you yeah should horrid saifi. And it's like the book is kind of creatively all over the place right like in the beginning. You're just kind of reading this You're reading and akao of the cultural revolution in china. Right and there's like a really lengthy account of a struggle session in the beginning of the book. Is i damn this historical fiction. But then you get these hints of hard scifi you of of sort of Like cold war era computer programming and you get to present day in this book and this book is in a really abrupt way that i found really ballsy. Amazing and is what i got sucked into. The book is when you realize that the book is about people trying to make contact with aliens at is like the rest of the book. You reading about your reading about humanity's first contact with this alien race by way in their their first contact sort of in the structure of how the book is laid out. at least. you're kind of slid into the idea of this alien race actually existing by way of video game that is kind of a simulation of that alien race. That's trying to explain to you their whole deal that they're like trapped on a planet but it's actually not that hospitable and they're trying to find another planet that they can go and like kind in an in an alien okay. We're gonna roll through gps than you signal. This is that the would. I don't know anything about like it's like it's it's i. I'm pretty sure and pretty sure that like the this will it's more of like a literal liberalization of what video games or first person shooters might do to like. You know the conspiracy theory of life there or not or whatever like go all of duty or first shooters being like fresh president shooters being like recruiting places that like conspiracy. Theory brother The truth and you not see those ads army like it is okay. sorry conspiracy. Theory wasn't the right word to use. Because i mean every branch of the military bike recruits from first person. She like the pool of first person. Shooters sort of lightly. Whatever you what. I'm talking about by interstate marketing. Yeah yeah it's a marketing games is super fields. Were you know like you know one nation under they have been okay so like enders game is basically like what if by teasing that idea out to instead of we're recruiting from people that play first and shooters are marketing to people that play first frozen shooters. What if the first person shooters themselves were sneakily like the controls to actual drones that are in fact wiping out a native population elsewhere. Damn i mean that's that's real me alive. She didn't realize realize realize dog. And i mean if i if i mess it up emails i am piecing it together from have a red like when i was twelve but you know like yeah sounds like that. Yeah the video game element in three body. Problem is a lot more incidental and weird to the plight again. Though lake even knowing bottle read this and recommended to millions of people. I feel like now i'm recommending it. Okay now however many years later i'm recommending it this book before a loop. You know what i mean. It wasn't when went camping in california during Earlier in the summer and it was like allegedly the required reading of this camping trip. And actually i'm the only person who took us to other people that already read it on the trip that i went on and i was reading was finishing it in like a tent. Well being menaced by bears in california. Yeah and and. I'm like reading the second book. The second book is called the dark forest off rip. It has the problem of like. I think they got the same. The translation of three body problem. The english translation is super good and the translation for the third book as the same as the first book but the second book at a different translator and it shows because it just doesn't he doesn't flow the same way and i'm having a hard time sticking with it Both because of that. And also. Because i lost my ipad while moving in wisconsin so like i was reading i had my whole land. Yeah it was tragedy. Was the question yet. I feel like definitely people buy gas by the way who are into three body problem. Please email me about it. 'cause it's like it's it's also the kind of book that it's impossible to not want to talk with people about it when you read it it's just so confidently bizarre and yeah. It's it's also the kind of thing right where it's like. That kind of scifi is usually not my cup of tea and all like i'm actually really curious about the fact that the book is big as it is just because I feel like it's only certain sub subsets of readers who give that kind of sci-fi a chance and.

"When doctors go into the examining room. They have numbers like twenty four. Serve unconscious bias. They have to filter through to really here for them to really understand what the patient is saying. The mean age gender race nationality. We go through this list. How they dress what they do for. All these things information they gather and they look at it. Nassar triggers biases. And i think this happens also a seller says you have certain inherent bias is many of them the same that doctors when they see a patient that also make it harder for you to understand parviz. Look you've got the image of this persona on your mind that shapes sir what you're hearing and how you're hearing it as opposed to saying okay.

This happens whether it's virtual person absolutely. Yeah i mean people people making judgments and about this in my second book is is the power of perceptions is so scientists found. The people make up their minds about other people within like two hundred fifty milliseconds of meeting them. Yeah that's the time takes you blink. Your eyes it's quarter of a second and think about that right to your point. Flip on zoom call got laundry hanging out with the background or whatever the other perceptions made in. What's what the research shows is that perceptions are sticky so waste from someone's foreign to perception of you even if you give them evidence to the contrary even even if they on their own come across evidence that contradicts their perception. It's very hard for people. Change that perception. Oh yeah. I remember early on well selling so we were we. We will require to her. Full suits shirt and tie right so I remember going through deployment and this is like a small auto shop. You know like you know mccain who started on business ride. The dirty uniforms whatever like. Oh yeah and i'm walking. Was and i remember just in which is lost or whatever and they see this guy on the suit coming in there are turned off right so be even though that was basically our requirement to wear. I learned pretty quickly. Defuse it immediately. Like makes them sort of like stupid joke with how they were so lucky to get to where they with a monkey suit to hopefully defeat as fast as possible. And i remember always. Sometimes it's the little things right. I remember Why started having some success. And i really like timepieces and watches. I'm bob my first decent. Watch that light and it was like this was his huge thing. I mean it was like massive watch and it was like the metal was like alec chrome let me it was. It was so so soul flashy and i remember like early. I made mistake. I defuse the situation with with like you know you know that. I was wearing suit and i'm whereas brand new watch. I'm very excited about. And i meet with the actually autoshop as a while. I'm going through the meeting and we. It's feeling pretty good. I can tell you the guys just a little bit standoffish.

Poland Grants Humanitarian Visa to Belarusian Olympic Athlete
"From Belarus at the Tokyo Games, who says she was threatened by her own government has been granted a humanitarian visa to take refuge in Poland from Moscow. Charles Maynes has the story. The Russian athlete Christina Team in Nov Sky had hoped to be an Olympic Stadium on Monday focused on running for a medal in the 200 M sprint. Instead, she found herself at a Tokyo airport hotel under Japanese protection and running from the Belarussian authorities. In a brief video posted to social media on Sunday came in all Sky had pleaded for help, claiming Belarus's Olympic committee was forcibly sending her home for criticizing its handling of the games.

We're leading Belarussian sports figures they lose the pasta of civilian and risk of OSHA says they risk their sporting futures but became models for the resistance.
