"The busiest times at TSA security checkpoints At sea tac 5 a.m. to 10 a.m. 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. So they're saying you got to plan ahead get at least two hours before your flight If your flight is at 10 a.m. and it's busiest for the two hours prior you're going to have to leave even earlier So what you can sit in the airport board to tears draining your battery watching movies or listening to podcasts on your phone And that's only if you can find a seat None of which have working USB ports to plug your phone into So you're just draining that battery which drives me nuts that we can't figure this out And about leaving today let's say you're driving Triple-A Kelly just said this The best times are before 6 a.m. or after 9 p.m. So don't leave before 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. That's your advice Which if everyone followed you would then have to say don't leave ever Just stay home And it's stupid advice Let's say you leave at 5 30 just to get a start Let's say you're driving from Georgia to Florida Let's say you're driving from Washington to Idaho and you leave at 5 30 a.m. It doesn't take 30 minutes to get to your destination so your advice to leave before 6 a.m. or after 90 no just say leave after 9 p.m. This is ridiculous And gas prices of course are through the roof So you're going to be hit hard there I don't know what gas is where you are but every single state in this country has gas over $4 And if you look at the West Coast and then you add Nevada to it all of our gas is over $5 California is over 6 It's absolute insanity And it sure doesn't feel like anyone's talking about it on the left I hear folks on the right talk about it all the time Senator Kennedy spoke about it today And he pointed out you know the vote of administration they're not exactly hiding their intent I don't think it's any secret that the Biden administration is trying to disrupt the production of all in America But just because she drill here and you have the Keystone pipeline doesn't mean the gas prices come down say stupid people who don't understand how supply and demand works You mean to tell me that if we were to increase the supply of oil in the global market in the global market that doesn't bring down the cost of gas just a little bit it's Russia's fault There's still a war I certainly concede that Russia is playing a role more role now obviously than before the war actually started in which gas prices were already going up I think that's just a fact We see it in the president canceling leases on federal lands And the Gulf of Mexico in Anbar We see it from the difficult regulatory environment For all and gas producers I better get a folksy joke in this That's what he's known for That's why I love seeing him on Fox News all the time The president's just promulgated new rules for the national environmental protection act If those new rules come to fruition it'll be impossible to open a new pipeline in America And I think we have to be honest about that Now to be fair the Biden administration is trying to disrupt the production of all and gas especially oil for environmental reasons Of which were both aware But instead the Biden administration this seems curious to me wants us to buy oil from foreign countries Okay we didn't get a folksy joke but he makes a very good point doesn't he We are now relying on foreign sources of oil which is not a very good place to be This is a national security issue This is totally a national security issue and by the time that Biden cares enough to realize that it's going to be too late Now I am someone who I'm an environmentalist I'm not a left wing environmentalist I don't think we should destroy capitalism in order to be good stewards of our environment but I think the environment is very important Granted I don't enjoy going outside but I know that a lot of you do and I certainly understand that it's important to protect But not at the expense of truly hurting people Truly hurting people who right now are trying to figure out how much damage they just truly did to their bank accounts by taking a much needed vacation There are people who are out there finally After two years because of COVID they're now not only feeling comfortable but they've got some of the money that they saved during COVID to go out and travel and it's costing them way more than they ever thought it would in Georgia alone You've got 1.2 million people Are expected to travel out of the state or throughout the state starting today Now just to give you some perspective of how many people that truly is that's as if the population of 14 Rhode Island traveled And while I don't actually think that's true it kind of felt like I needed to add some context there Here's a cheesy report from WSB TV Thousands are kicking off this summer travel season.

"But the whalers, the people who have that close relationship to the environment to the fish don't know anything about this. And there's so much negative effect that can happen as the fish consumed the silica. And it's being used as a solution to climate change. And that's why we are very critical on what we call false solutions because we found through studies that these carbon pricing mechanisms and techno fixes do not cut admissions at source. Thank you very much for your insight on that time. And you're blowing my mind. I think we need to continue this conversation. Well past today's episode of native America calling for sure. I want to turn it back over to Jade baguette at this time. Jade, do you have any thoughts to add on to nicos questions? Thank you. Yeah, I think I really just want to build on what Tom shared and underscore the importance of our people getting very familiar with frameworks such as ethic free prior informed consent. Also training each other in policies such as the national environmental protection national environmental policy act. These are all critical frameworks policies and mechanisms to hold the administration accountable. And right now we're seeing we're seeing movement. We're seeing some traction, whether that's in the EPA or whether that's in The White House where, you know, this week, there was a lot of progress hopefully progress recommitment to honoring treaties, commitments to uplifting traditional ecological knowledge in policy decisions. So I think it's just, especially for us young folks, I think it's really important for us to familiarize ourselves with these processes, these policies understanding what is an environmental impact statement and the gaps that.

"So Governor Gavin Newsome wagged his finger at the, uh Cameras at a press conference, saying, I'm sick and tired of those climate change deniers. They're not going to get any more attention from me. The fires were caused by climate change, and they know it and I'm just done arguing with them. Well, unfortunately, he just simply doesn't want to look at the science or the data. And Steve Malloy, founder of junk science. Dotcom does have the science does have the data and he joins us on the Demayo report. Steve, thanks for stopping by Carl So let's start out. You got Governor Newsome and the left in California. Anytime there's ah, wildfire, they scream. Can I change and that's all they say they don't want to talk about any other factor, any other driver any other issue. Can you tell me? Why do we have wildfires in California? Well, I think he could blame Mother Nature No one. Really. You know if it's dry and lightning strikes or some other source of combustion turns up, you're gonna have some fires. Why are you telling me that we had wild fires 500 years ago in California I have a new piece up on junk science dot com and it's about a study that goes back 1100 years. For India that were as long as 220 years. Wow guards back then, then we did, I guess. Yeah. Yeah, he was increasing the fees on the water bill on the shoulders. They still had droughts 223 years ago before SUV's and coal fired power plants. Pro droughts and nothing new is a matter of fact, The anomaly is the 20th century, the 20th century when California was really developed I was kind of unusual and it was so very wet and you know, for all we know we're heading back into one of these periods where California is going to be a drought for I don't know 200 years. And if that's the case You know, Gavin Newsom just hold his breath. Screaming Climate change is just not gonna work out for the state. So 200 years. I's not Ah, historically unusual period for California, given Mother Nature, Given our topography, given our climate given just you know where we are. But we'll take a look at what some of the things that we should be doing a better job of here in California. What are some of the other factors? Besides, can you change that you think might be at play and by the way, that's how you have to say it on the show. You think with global warming that's available because it changed me changed today from global warming once they realize their numbers weren't showing up the right way, But But go ahead. What are some of the other? Scientific data driven strategies that we should be pursuing. Well, you know, I think the only strategy there really works is with mainland work force management and land management. You know, you've got to keep your land clean. He should No thin forests. Some log, he wouldn't be a bad idea which you know California gets stopped doing about 40 years ago. You have to take care of the land Better, smarter. Stopped listening to environmentalist, You know, maybe even consider if you're going to build a house in a risky area. Well, maybe the insurance premiums should be a little higher. That's really that's where it comes down right at the environmentalists do believe that humans are encroaching on the environment. That's the word they used that as a coachman. Yeah, I mean, you know, they want a living vertically and cities they don't want us to live in, you know, in suburbs much, Wes, like, you know, in forest. So you know, they want to crowd together so we can all get die from Corona virus. They're not for the kind of lifestyle we have now and ah You know, they complain. You eat it while farce for them, or, like sort of a double win. You know it gets us. You know, there's going to be probably less development now in these wild areas, which that's what they want. And they can also use the wall bars for your political purposes of their propaganda. Pushing the liquid climb it. You know, I do have Tio wrapped the knuckles of the federal government and technically It's a trump administration they've had, you know, 3.5 years they're just now starting to reinstitute, thinning and controlled burns on federal lands, and there You know, the federal government, you know, owns almost half of California. In terms of you know that the land holdings that they have, which is a phenomenal stat Es Oh, but but But this is a issue that preceded Trump in order for him to do the thinning and the control burns. Those agency had those agencies had to get through environmental roadblocks put up by the left. And so when people say, but Trump could have done. Look, Look, if Trump started thinning and controlled burns tomorrow on federal lands, you know there would be lawsuits under Nipah. National Environmental Protection Act that would would would stymie him so well, we have to. We have to get government to clean up its own watershed and its own habitat. But not only that, I mean, even if the Trump administration was allowed to go through and thin federal lands. You've got 40 years of overgrowth. Just gonna take some time. And you know, so you know, New York have to you know, it surprises me that New Yorkers have led New York And as bad as it is, like New York City, with mayor applause, everything with Corona virus City goes down. It's astounding to me that California puts up with environmentalists. And, you know, Well, this just got out of control. Stephen Lloyd. These may be the days the photographs that you see on Twitter and Facebook of the orange skies across the state of California, not just in San Diego, but literally. In every major corner of San Diego. There's photograph circulating social media, I have to hope that that will eventually cause Californians to course correct in their choice of leadership. Seeing those pictures in the Los Angeles Times or CNN or The New York Times. You're getting messages. This is caused by climate change. You know the irony California You know, you guys have precious you have no coal fired power in the state. Um, you know, you got all these cap and trade all these environmental regulation. We're getting rid of the national natural gas or getting rid of clean natural gas now and you're still burning. Right way. Gotta jet Steve. We love what you Ah, have been shining. A light on a cz relates to the lack of scientific grounding in terms of what Newsome and others were saying about the wildfires. We'll have you back on. All right, thanks to Dr there.

"And they're even consistent with the United Nations Treaty on Outer Space. It seems now possible. Space six, has devoted significant resources in the last year to making the satellite's darker looks as if they've been able to do that, if other satellite companies could follow suit. And follow a few recommendations. Then perhaps we could save the sky for making eye star gazers. But that is not going to solve the problem for research astronomy. It is literally existential threat for astronomy. Apartment if they do dark and satellites with some kinds of shading. His research astronomy still threatened by the satellites just being there. Yes, there's multiple considerations oneness the contribution as James. Well, put it. Both at a you know, research astronomy level. Is this spoiling my galaxy exposure? Is this affecting my science? To space debris is a big one, and collisions between satellites also interference that other band passes. As I've educated myself on this issue have been really surprised at the lack of consistent international regulation and transparent protocols on how we are literally occupying space. I know we have the outer space Treaty from 1967. But at the time there was a race to literally occupy space to be the first there, and that strategy is still driving. Even our policy with the moon like a rush to claim kind of a first come first claim approach. But I would advocate there's a huge opportunity right now, 60 years later, we're entering this with very different preexisting conditions in the 19 sixties because our planet And our species and really all species are in existential crossroads are very vulnerable. And I think we should move away from a scarcity, mindset and a Defensive reactive strategy. To a more proactive strategy, one that begins in intentionality and respect and we need to develop ethical and transparent protocols ahead of the science and I know it'll be slow and messy. But we're really at a crossroads and now is the time to revisit the process. I want to bring back doctor innately again with their hopes for what comes next. I think that we're too far along this path to hold the flood back. What we absolutely in urgently need to do is find a way to do both for the benefit of all. The question is, How do we do that? Now? Where the policy Where are the leaders where the voice is? Who's going to make that happen? Just a reminder on my Ira Flatow and this is science Friday from studios. A good question. That is the missing piece who are the leaders are ponder you can answer first. I think what we need is more representation at the decisionmaking table. Both of international communities and all the groups advocating for dark skies. There's so much sliding by that we are not able to pay attention to And the first step is to have an advocacy group in our federal agencies. I personally think NASA should have a cultural ethics or cultural protocol office that can partner with all the other aspects of what we as astronomers do. The White House issued an executive order on April 6th. Asserting a writer recover and use space resources. And there's a quote here that I'll read out. Americans should have the right to engage in commercial exploration, recovery and use the resource is an outer space consistent with applicable law. Outer space is illegally and physically unique domain of human activity and I'll try your attention to this end of the quote The United States does not view it as a global Commons. So that's very alarming to me, and the key word for me is applicable law. The laws need to change right now. It's just a couple of regulatory bodies, then bring more historically minority sized voices to the decisionmaking table. And one final question for you, James. How do we get this as part of the discussion to begin with? One of point attention to the United Nations Treaty on the use of outer space, which includes the phrases that the exploration and use of outer space should be carried on for the benefit of all peoples, irrespective of the degree of their economic or scientific development. And also that such cooperation will contribute to the development of mutual understanding and to the strengthening of friendly relations between states and people's. These are lofty goals and trying to the United Nations and I'm happy to say that there is currently an international conference being planned for October. That will result in a white paper to the United Nations about light pollution, including from satellites, with the hope that we will be able to provide some more teeth to those treaties. It also needs to happen is a partner said updating of federal United States laws and other countries. Laws Right now, the National Environmental Protection Act does not include protection of the sky. The sky is not consider the environment that needs protecting now we can see it desperately does need that protection. I think we're out of time. So much to talk about. We have begun the discussion. I'd like to thank my guest actor Aparna Venkatesan, professor of physics and astronomy, University of San Francisco. Dr. James Lowenthal, professor and chair of astronomy. Smith College, North Hampton, Massachusetts. As I say Thank you both for taking time to be with us today. Thank you for this opportunity. Thank you. It was a pleasure. One last thing before we go we've been talking about who makes the decisions about the night sky. And one thing that sure is that Space six is continuing to put their starling satellites up. And NASA wants you to photograph them..

"They have a lot of time. Get this thing done and get that oil movies. There were important point he's really raised right on point here. Um Scott, so very there couple of issues. The first issue is the issue. You just talked about the environmental impact statement person he ate Earth environmental assessment. Remember it was under the Obama administration that the Corps of engineers concluded That an environmental assessment was adequate for this for this crossing, and the reason they determined it was adequate was because they didn't. But that's what is done in all of these. These cases that this is not a complicated river crossings. Rather, it's rather standard. In fact, That the same pipeline crosses the same river north of on the northern part of the river in North Dakota system. It's not that unusual and this same judge now listen, This is really Important circle stuff. This same judge on a total 11 to 2017 nearly three years ago issued an order on this very same topic, And he concluded that the pipeline could first will remain in operation and said that the court had largely complied with Niklas requirements with this e A and that the case at that time was Korma or that you have the core and the company want to continue to operate the pipeline while they added a supplemental. So they're actually expanding the well then when he received some criticism for you, considering his order, saying that they were short, cutting the deeper process nippers overriding Regulation National Environmental Protection Act. He wrote that he said this. But the lengthy procedural history of this case shows more over. There has been nothing hasty about the chorus decision making thus far so at that 0.3 years ago, he was all on board. Within a year, he was all on board with keeping the pipeline operating. And now he's saying no, you need a full blown the whole pipeline. And by the way, you have to shut down the pipeline and empty that oil, which is beyond his scope. And and I do think, Gary this that I don't. I don't want to prejudge anything, and it's certainly not. I'm not hearing the case for that for anybody, but at the very least, it seems to me that on appeal, they allow the company to continue to operate the line. They ought to do you and by the way that a line that's been operating successfully safely securely environmentally solidly for three years. While they either conduct the whole bony ass or appeal the decision to even have to do a complete yes, and by the way, is another factor. It's not the company that's that's a bolt here. It's the US Army Corps of Engineers. Is there who was their permit? It is being litigated here. Not, you know, not the operation of the pipeline company. Appreciate your call Gary. Thanks so much others waiting. I don't know that it's possible to over state the impact of this one decision. One judge in saying this is going to shut down. I mean, the ripple effects Amazing. There might not be enough money to fund the diversion in Fargo, Right and up. So that's exactly right. Yeah, I mean, some people be okay with that. But I'm saying right now it's the majority view. And people want to have that happen. I'm saying how many other things won't happen. So this is the big one In my mind. The oil industry was just right now to the point where they're okay. Good luck that we can go and we'll go to our lenders. We could go back. We can invest. We can drill. Oils that $40 Let's find the drill spots that have the best return that all stopped Who in their right mind is gonna lend anybody toe money? Tio pull product out of the ground that you can't get into a pipeline because the car and you got to put on rail. Well, Scott to your point. This is all about investment is all about. We wear investment in the oil industry is going to take place and remember, we are already fighting a lower price. We're fighting the salaries and Russians and their oversupply of that hope. We had to fight that one off. We did that successfully. Look, the industry is just coming back to that $40 mark words sort of hanging in there. And that is prompted some additional investment people looking and remember that North Dakota and the box is riches. That field is successful as it is, we are in the center of the North American continent. At $40 W T I price does not mean $40 in barking. It means that maybe lower to mid thirties at best in the box because of the transportation discount. Now you take away over half a 1,000,000 barrels of production a day on a very efficient pipeline. And you put that on rail cars, for example, that adds another $10 to the cost, which makes it very difficult for investors to continue this year. So guess what that means to go to Texas, Oklahoma, Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, Venezuela. Russia probably not been as well. But Russia. They're going to begin at look for places where cheaper to produce transport and literally, it will be cheaper to bring oil from Saudi Arabia. Meant to produce oil in North Dakota and Dad has very serious long term ramifications. Not just to the revenue picture for the North Korean government and funding for education and you write diversions and roads and social services, which we're gonna need a lot more up when there aren't as many jobs by the way Social Service Service But it also is detrimental to American national security. We have become largely guys economically secure because of oil development in this country. And now all of that at risk because of one activist judge in Washington. I don't know when we come back. What you think the best In a remedy here is one obviously a win in court. Is this being appealed to it? Would it be possible for standing rock to say OK, Proceed with the eyes.

"The primary goal of restoration ecology which is also known as ecological restoration is to return a community or ecosystem to a condition similar ecological structure function or both to that existing prior to site disturbance or degradation. But it's really up to you. It's a fluid and dynamic field. So choose what you will. If you want a more in-depth read make sure to look at our show notes or our website where we will lose permanent resources and materials such as the primer Sdr guidelines an interesting books available through island. Press the authority and main source that I will be using for definitions and guidance is the society for ecological restoration. There are only a couple other organizations that I'm aware of councils related to the United Nations Society Wetland scientists and the Ecological Society of America among a few others but those are the main ones. I go to restoration is still very much. An emerging and young field of Science. That makes sense since we are predominantly trying to solve new ANTHROPROGENIC ISSUES. Issues have become prevalent in the nineteen hundreds with little regulations in place curb detrimental effects of industry and our overall footprint as humans. We saw mechanisms and figures. Come to the forefront with these impacts becoming more and more prevalent throughout the late century people became concerned with things like rivers on fire outright pollution and with that we saw people like Luna Leopold Rachel Carson Aldo Leopold Edward Abbey Berry Lopez. Freeman House. Wendell Berry Gary Snyder. Wall stagner Gifford Pinchot o e o Wilson among many others admittedly. I am an avid reader of natural history and I will probably refer to these authors from time to time. If you haven't checked them out I highly recommend doing so so we also saw things like Niba which is the National Environmental Protection. Act and sequel. Which is the California Environmental Quality? Act I apologize many things I will say around California as I am based in Humboldt County. I can't really help it. So we also saw the endangered Species Act Native Plant Protections Clean Water Act. The National Pollution Discharge Elimination System Permits Wilderness Protection and other things related to natural communities lately such as Oak Woodlands NGOs which are non governmental organizations grassroot. Organizations Land Trusts River keepers restoration councils native plants societies earth. First and list goes on. This is all really happening in the blink of an eye. I was lucky enough to be born in a time. Cd's mechanisms already in place for the most part and making considerable differences. I never saw one of those previously mentioned rivers on fire however we still have a long ways to go. So let's start by talking about different types of restoration. The literature kind of defines three main ones. We got complete restoration where the goal is to restore all previous attributes. That were historically present. There's ecological services restoration which is also called process-based restoration which includes simplified structures and we have experiential restoration which is usually created for people or leisure. So you see that happening in parkways and where people go to recreate so then we can also go and define active restoration versus passive restoration where impassive restoration. You're only removing the disturbance and you're allowing nature to steer the go-cart Kart whereas active restoration. Your more engaged and on the ground you are doing plantings realizing channels still removing those disturbances. But you're trying to also reinstate some of those processes one good definition provide is trajectory where the natural succession or flow of events. That would be present. Through natural processes and a reference condition or reference model is also something commonly referred to in restoration where through utilizing an intact community nearby or through other means such as historical data or conversations. You can guide your restoration projects and find the correct trajectory that you are steering your go-cart towards lately people have been changing their views on reference conditions. A little bit so we see people not really trying to mimic are already in place communities but instead tried to accommodate for challenges in the future. And there's a lot of them so we have things like climate change sea level rise and we also have a hard time knowing. What was there historically? We can only go back so far. With aerial imagery or with conversations. The question is always. What is the goal? And why is that? The goal another key aspect I want to touch on is monitoring and that is because it's often neglected or done at minimum requirements. Where data is not so meaningful or not even collected this is due to funding issues or time restraints and also that data is not disseminated through the restoration community as it should be to better inform future projects so some of the issues that can be discussed and the restoration world include novel trajectories or novel ecosystems and whether historic models are still even relevant due to challenges and posed by climate change invasive species distribution sea level rise or other situations. We find ourselves at this point in time. Also can we really know what was President and historical circumstances? How far back in time can or should we strive to go? Should landscapes be left alone and always what is the best strategy so I should take a step back and define novel ecosystems or novel trajectories? So those are human built modified or engineer niches. They exist in places that have been altered in structure and function by human reasons. And with that. Let's.
