What Is NATO?
"What is NATO? NATO is the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. NATO was formed post World War II, and it was formed with the idea of trying to hedge against the Soviet Union. Now there are some good reasons for that in the Soviet Union was an evil empire in more ways than one. Albeit, I don't think we're quite honest with some of our relationship with the Soviet Union. We did partner with the Soviet Union to defeat the Nazis. After that there was this mad dash of who will control Europe and NATO was formed. NATO has 30 member countries. These countries, Albania, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia Lithuania, Luxembourg, Montenegro, the Netherlands, North Macedonia, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, turkey, which I never quite understood. United Kingdom and the United States. These are 30 independent member countries. And there is what is called article 6. The article 5 article 6 of NATO, which is the mutual defense clause of NATO, which is an attack on one, is an attack on all.

A federal judge has ruled the U.S. government isn't doing enough to protect a rare and declining species of whale. I'm Ben Thomas with details. North Atlantic right whale number less than 340 Once numerous, they were decimated during the commercial whaling era and recent years have seen their population decline rapidly. Friday, a federal judge ruled the government is violating both the endangered species act and the marine mammal protection act by failing to protect the right whale from lethal entanglement in lobster fishing gear. The judge writes the ruling does not suggest the government must immediately shudder the American lobster fishery, but it does need to come up with new rules to protect the right whale from extinction, right whales give birth off Florida and Georgia and come north to the waters of New England and Canada to feed. Scientists say warming ocean temperatures are causing them to stray from protected areas in search of food, leaving them more vulnerable to entanglement and the lethal collisions with ships.

NATO and Putin Are in a War of Totalitarianism
"There's two different types of totalitarianism believe it or not, that are kind of now being buttressed against each other. Putin said, quote, in 2019, he told the Financial Times of London newspaper that liberalism has become obsolete. He said children are quote taught that a boy can become a girl and vice versa. Is monstrous and Putin says is on the verge of a crime against humanity. Vladimir Putin also suggests that transgender rights supporters were demanding an end to basic things such as mother, mother, father, family, or gender differences. So you have NATO, which is more like nay wow, which like the North Atlantic woke organization, going up against a totalitarian despot, and so you have these kind of two different types of totalitarian impulse is going against one another.

"north atlantic" Discussed on Data Skeptic
"And can you describe the underlying dataset that you're training on? What is the input and where do you get it from? So the inputs are coming from these climate model large ensembles. So we're taking these ensemble experiments that have these different four cities. Differences in carbon dioxide, differences in aerosols. And then one other simulation has everything that's supposedly realistic just like the real world. And so my input to my neural network is actually just the map of temperature. I'm taking a sentient annual mean map, so one map for every year of temperature, going back from the historical period. So what I mean by that is like 1920 all the way to the future to 2080. So I essentially give the neural network this one map of temperature and it's all latitude and longitude points on earth. So it comes to something like a 1500 points or features that go into the network. And then this layer wise relevance propagation essentially outputs a heat map of those features, which correspond identically to the map of latitude and longitude points. When I think of machine learning, I'm always trying to make tabular data, but the earth isn't quite tabular. It's an oblique spheroid. Do you face any challenges around quantifying the data because it's not in such a rectangular format? Right. That's a good question. It's definitely something our research group has been exploring in at least in the ways we've set up the problem so far. It almost seems that the neural network is learning to wait the importance of the different latitude and longitude regions to account for this spherical nature of the grid. So in our cases, we haven't really used any weighting methods for areas like in the Arctic, which have a smaller latitude and longitude grid box compared to the tropics. But I know for other types of groups which think about sort of weather prediction, they have definitely applied different types of waiting methods to give some latitude, some pixels, more weight than others just because of this spherical nature. So I would say it's definitely a challenge in something I know a lot of research groups are thinking about how to take that into account for machine learning models. So when studying these forced factors you could run through a whole bunch of different examples of what if this was off by this much in this region and use these tools to get understanding of how that might evolve, do these layer wise maps? Are they sufficient answer then when you go and look at it? Are there other statistics you're considering as well? For this paper, we're really focusing on, I guess the patterns. So our case, the heat maps actually correspond very nicely to these climate patterns that were really trying to disentangle from the different four things. So that's one of the main metrics and as I've also mentioned, we set up our neural network very simply. So I don't think I've said, but the output of our neural network is the year of that map that I input. So it's essentially a very simple prediction problem coming at it from I don't really care what year of the map it is. I care about more of the climate patterns. So in our case, the layer wise relevance propagation maps really reveal these patterns that we're interested in, how does the neural network learn that that map of temperature comes from that year? And then what does it look like between these different climate models with different force things? So in our case, the visualization explainability part is really the heart of this work. I'm not sure if I fully follow on predicting the year just yet. So I could definitely understand where the system could learn historically that something was brewing in the Atlantic and it can see a later stage of that event that could be something it could learn. I guess a time series over years, but as you forecast, these aren't the drifting further and further from some ground truth timeline? Absolutely. And so what we're really trying to understand is the climate aspect. So how do these forcings affect regional patterns in the earth system through time? So essentially, can the neural network recognize these patterns that are attributable to the different four sinks? So essentially, the neural network is learning this time evolving nature without giving it any information temporally to understand the patterns. Like, for instance, one area in the North Atlantic is actually cooling due to climate change, while the rest of the globe warms. So the neural network actually can identify this region, this anomalous cooling over the North Atlantic, to learn how it evolves in time, essentially predicting the year. And I think our group has used this idea of predicting the year for a couple of different research applications. And I think going back to the initial stage of setting up this problem, we were skeptical that it was going to even work that the neural network could it possibly learn this temporal information by just being given the static map. And so I think what's come out of all of this work is that the layer wise relevance propagation is revealing these regions that temporally change in the neural network is learning how these features correspond to each other and change through time. You've described some of these neural networks as being simple. How simple are they? Can you describe the architecture of it? For these neural networks, we have two hidden layers essentially 20 nodes in each hidden layer. And then this output layer is essentially.

I like laura and ryan a lot but one thing you need to know is that they are the sort of people who really try to suck the marrow out of life and make the most of their brief flicker of consciousness and all that stuff. This is very different from my style of traveling wherein i most of the day psyching myself up to do one thing visit a museum perhaps and the rest of the day recovering from the only event on my itinerary. The trip took us from denmark. Sweden and then on to iceland a small and mostly rocky island nation in the north atlantic. That attracts tourists primarily by offering free stopovers to anyone who flies iceland's national airline. Iceland air. I was interested in visiting iceland partly because i have a longstanding fascination with tiny nations and partly because my publisher jewish strauss gable had told me she loved this one hot dog stand in iceland called bayern's be to answer the trips to sweden and denmark had been lovely there were smorgasbords and museums but the highlight had been an evening spent with ryan's swedish relatives. Who lived on the shores of some vast lake in the swedish wilderness. They welcomed us to their home and proceeded to get us blisteringly unprecedentedly. Drunk on sweden's national wicker bronfman. I do not often drink to excess. Because i have an intense fear of hangovers but i made an exception. That evening ryan's relatives taught us swedish drinking songs.

"The recent. Tom hanks movie greyhound. The captain of destroyer leads a convoy across the u boat infested north atlantic during world war. Two not say that the trip from the us to britain in nineteen forty two was dangerous is not only an understatement of epic proportion it offers the context for the extraordinary composition of benjamin britten's ceremony of carols britten was arguably the most important british composer of the twentieth century. After three years in north america. He found himself in the middle of the atlantic aboard a swedish cargo vessel trying to return to his native england instead of panicking midst. The harrowing circumstances were too dangerous crossing. He wrote two. Choral works the him to saint cecilia and the ceremony of carols and as the name suggests the ceremony of carols consists of ten carols frame by the chant. Hodie a christie's not to est- today christ is born both the beginning and the end the carol employed day from the fourteenth to sixteenth centuries and are sung in middle and early modern english as well as in latin one. Care all deo gratias. Thanks be to god. Sung a combination of middle english. And latin tells the story of genesis three while the texas primarily about the fall the carols musical energy and emphasis is on thankfulness specifically thankfulness to god for providing a savior who sets things right. The most beloved carol in the work is this little bay. And despite the sentimental sounding title of this carol the tax describes the all out battle that this babe of bethlehem wages against satan himself the tax was written by robert southwell catholic priest who was hanged drawn and quartered by queen elizabeth.

"You must be somebody who really really loves adrenaline jockey that's for. Sure. Yeah, I sure do got to keep the heart going. So you talk about in this book single engine over the Ocean. Boy Really. Sure. Sure. They gotta they gotta get. There's someplace and you gotta find somebody stupid enough to do it so. that. It takes a lot of skill to do that, and so a lot of times people ask though. I know we talk about faring airplanes, 'cause people, purchase planes. There's a lot of reasons to do it I. I'm in a building here where we have a ferry company downstairs. I always think of putting a small plane in a container and shipping it would probably be the best way. So so why would you ferry a plane over the water when you could ship it in a container? Well in a word money I mean it's expensive to take him apart. Shipping is not that expensive expensive to put it back together. But you know last time to play I've heard lots of stories of people doing that and they get there and there's a couple of vital parts missing from the plane and. Becomes a problem. So then they would go toward someone like you that can actually has first of all the knowledge. To fly an airplane, the water and also has more than that has the guts to do. I I'd have to say when you're preparing for this, there's got to be two things involved.

What Susan Rice thinks she could bring to a Biden administration
"I'm Jonathan. Kaye part, and this is Cape up in former President Barack. Obama's first term Susan Rice was the US ambassador to the United Nations. In the second term, she was Obama's National Security Advisor. Today Susan Rice as a private citizen author of tough love, my story of the things worth fighting for and under serious consideration to be Joe. Biden presidential, running name. Here what she has to say about that President Trump's handling of the coronavirus pandemic, and whether the president is a national security threat to the United States in the Special Cape Up Life episode right now. Welcome back for the third time to the Cape Up podcast embassador Susan Rice welcome. Thanks so much great to be with you. So leery about one minute before we came on air here, there was breaking news that trump administration drops plan to deport international students in online classes, and your reaction was to applaud explained chance. Well, it was such a misguided. Stupid. Decision that they took in the first place. International students are critical part of our university structure. Our college campuses they bring talent. They bring diversity. They bring resources and to lock them out, simply because their campuses have decided by virtue of the pandemic they need to. Conduct classes, online in the fall was just calloused an. Extraordinarily counterproductive I haven't had a chance to read in detail the reporting on it, but it looks like. The trump administration saw their effort to defend this policy in court was unlikely to succeed and they backed down. And it seems to be a victory for our colleges and universities are students across this country and across the world, because so much of our appeal, our competitiveness, our soft power depends on people around the world, wanting to come here and learn and study bring their skills and talents. So this is a good day. Ambassador. Let's keep talking about foreign policy. Originally, I was going to start this interview talking about the election in Poland and the news of the reelection of Poland's president. Duda and he's an ally of president. Trump's and a supporter of the right wing Law and Justice Party he's been condemned by the e, U and democratic watchdogs, and just wondering how if you think president trump's behavior in the farm policies space his support for leaders like Duda, as contributed to the rise of illiberal nationalist in autocratic regimes around the world. Well certainly legitimize the rise of elected autocrats, and we see that increasingly. Parts of the World Poland is the most recent example it's unfortunate because Poland is an important part of NATO an important part of the EU, but it is moving in a direction where it's values, and its approach are completely out of step with the other members of the alliance and it it suggested. Particularly, when it comes to the EU. Their position could be in jeopardy down the road if if there is a further move towards anti democratic policies and structures. Ambassador is it possible for the alliance to even survive if the super in the alliance, the United States doesn't even bother to champion those small D, democratic ideals that have been the cement for Alliance for more than seven decades. All the NATO alliance is under duress. Because of president trump's callous disregard for the purposes and the interest of this alliance, our alliance with NATO is built on common values, but it's also built on interest that we stand together as North American allies North Atlantic allies. And Atlantic. And Europe broadly to counter threats to our sovereignty and territorial integrity is in alliance at which come chiefly from Russian. And when the United States, Questions the value of our lines turns it into a transactional arrangement when president trump decides to unilaterally withdraw third of our horses from Germany without even consulting with the German government and calls our adversaries from Russia to China to North Korea while putting our allies in a very difficult position, it does great damage to the alliance in that's one of the many reasons why we need change I don't think NATO, and our leadership role in the world can withstand for more years of Donald Trump. And, that's why we need change, and we need leadership in the form of Joe Biden who comes out of the bipartisan American tradition of supporting our alliances of understanding who our friends are, and who are adversaries are, and that our leadership and our strength in the world is enhanced when we can bring partners and allies with us.
Flying Into a DITCH
"Somebody wrote in saying that flying over water was a hole in their training, and is there anything they can do? Of course they can take anything they can do to prepare for flying over water. In this case in the Caribbean on it brings up a great point because the entire reason we. We created the airplane camp trip. islands of the Pacific northwest was to cover this particular. Particular hole in training. There's just not a lot out there about what it might be like to ditch an airplane or how to prepare, you know we've all read opened the doors before impact and you know, wear your your life jacket, but be beyond that. Will you know what is there so so I will say I off in this sounds like an unashamed sales pitch, but Maybe it is. On the island trip covers all that we get a life raft from winslow, one of these five thousand dollar liferafts that you're supposed to pack on board when you fly over water, we give everybody time in a sea plane, so you can kind of. Impact on the water is like we have ferry pilots on staff. People like Peter Lert who have crossed the north, Atlantic, more than fifty times, and we, we really try to cover this knowledge but I'll do the best I can here in the podcast to tell you some of the major points, and some of the stories that I conveyed those pilots that come to the airplane camp. We kind of a campfire evening talks, and some of those stories. Some of the kind of knowledge we can pass down is is really powerful. so first of all. Let's just cover the basics I mean. If you're not within power off gliding distance from shore, you should be wearing a life jacket and you should probably wear the kind that sailors us that aren't inflated. Of just their little tubes like snakes that go around your neck. and you should take out. The automatic inflates co two cartridge so that if the aircraft fills up with water, the life jacket doesn't deploy in the aircraft right, but that you can easily deployed once. You're clear the airplane. and you should investigate if you're going for long over water flights a liferaft like the one I described from winslow. One of the we do tell people in the ferry. Pilots convey for to us. Is that the Life Jack? The life raft really has to be readily accessible I mean in a perfect world on your lap. Really so you have to have it in a location in the airplane where you can just grab it. It's pretty common knowledge in any survival situation. Ditching included that what you're only gonNA. Have the things that you're wearing. So you know putting that whole picture together. If you're by yourself, you'd probably want to be wearing survival vast full of gear. Maybe dye markers signal mirrors on first aid kits, things like that on and also a lot, a personal afo tation device a PF de around your neck with the. Automatic inflate inflation cartridge out and a life. Raft if need be just. Maybe arm's distance in between the front seat in the seats on the just easily grab. now having said all that I'm GONNA. Tell you a story. The most enlightening story that I've ever heard because there's not a lot of information out there about what it's like to actually hit the water outside of the advanced pilot flight manual where Bill Kirschner talks a little bit about you know ditching in a in a fixed gear airplane which? is most likely. GonNa Flip GonNa hit once, and then Kirschner describes the second hit as a flip, sometimes the first hit the flip. so it's a pretty violent impact outside of that book. I haven't encountered a lot of information but I did see a lecture at Oshkosh. One year, probably the most valuable lecture at ever seen at Oshkosh gentlemen and a two ten who ditched in Lake Erie near put in Bay outside of Cleveland in a to ten, so he had gear, the gear was up, and he ditched. Everybody survived the ditching, and he ditched next to a ferryboat, which is a wise idea. If you're an open water, next to any boat. Really and somebody onboard. The ferry boat captured video, so you were able to listen to this lecture while watching video of the actual event. And he described the landing itself as very very smooth in a retractable gear airplane. He described like someone grabbing the tail and pulling to a hard stop, and he said that immediately after the airplane came to a stop, the water level was pretty much at the Lindbergh. Reference right there at the window. You know the forward window just on the pilot side. And he had forgotten to do two things he'd forgotten to open the doors and he'd forgotten to lock the baggage compartment so because the doors weren't open. The airplane floated there for a second, and he had a chance to turn to everybody and say hey, is everybody okay on? Everyone said yes, under your seat belts, and which point. He opened the door, I think he had to open the window I. The airplane flooded. Now, he was a very big guy, so he was able to lean into the door and get it open. One risk of not opening the door ahead of time would be that you couldn't get it open. Due to the pressure. Until you flooded the airplane but he did say it was valuable to have that moment. You know floating for everybody. Because the minute the door opened the airplane nosedive to the bottom of the lake about fifteen feet down. Everybody Swam Free Except the woman in the very back seat, so in the to ten is a six seater. She panicked and tried swimming up through the window, the plastic window in the baggage compartment so he dove down once he realized someone was missing open to the baggage door because it wasn't locked, forgotten to lock it and pulled her out by her feet. All of this is on video from the ferry boat. It's a it's an interesting story. Because of you know the how it played out for him to have. The doors closed versus open was interesting. And thinking through locking the baggage compartment. If anyone does need to get in there and rescue, you They're going to be able to do that if it's locked so. Anyway I hope that sort of helps, organize thoughts on just flying over water in
Whale Protections Need Not Cause Lobstering Losses
"There's a lot of cash crawling on the sea floor. American lobsters, bringing more money than any other US Fisher, a record, six hundred and seventy million dollars in two, thousand, sixteen, mostly through Maine Massachusetts. The fishery relies on traditional lobster harvest techniques. A series of traps is drops to the ocean floor with a long rope attached to a floating buoy during peak fishing season. There's over nine hundred thousand vertical lines right in the middle of right whale habitat graduate student, Hannah Myers. Myers from the University of Alaska Fairbanks College of fisheries and ocean sciences, those vertical lines entangle and kill endangered sea turtles and multiple whale species, including the North Atlantic right whales, only about four hundred individuals remain, and recent analyses show that the species won't survive if humans kill an average of one whale each year, some estimates indicate that lobster in gear kills more than three whales each year on average management problems. Problems surrounding the north? Atlantic right whale and entanglements are pretty significant and have been really challenging to move forward, and a large part of that is due to expected negative economic impact in the lobster fishery, but right we'll protections don't have to mean lobster losses, Canada's lobster harvest operates with fewer traps and a shorter six-month-long season. The US lobster fishery in Maine expense, approximately seven and a half times as much as. As, the Canadian fishery to catch the same amount, and Canadians are catching almost four times more lobster protract. They're putting less effort into it and spending less on fuel and equipment, but they're still gathering nearly the same amount of lobster overall, and there are stateside examples in Massachusetts areas that have had a seasonal closure. In recent years have reached a record high landings. The study was published in the Journal. Marine policy. Restrictions could actually mean a healthier lobster population overall it paradoxical, but it is consistent with a lot of fisheries research that shows that when you fish with too much effort and too many traps in the water. The stock itself isn't as robust so one thing we might expected that you would either have you know more or larger lobsters if there if fewer. Fewer traps into water, coming into each trap, and therefore able to haul up more lobster trap, and that's kind of what we see on the Canadian side, taking some of those ropes out of the water could benefit both the whales and the Fisher. Our main takeaways that a negative economic impact should not be assumed with effort reduction in the US fishery.

"I had an opportunity to fly a GRUMMIN. This is an airplane that I've never flown before. Or if I did. It was like one hour fifteen or twenty years ago So it was interesting to sort of approach. The process and I was doing it. With Steve Randell Redwood bus driver here at thermal airport and it was funny because Steve used to be a ferry pilot that is. He's to take airplanes from Europe to the United States back to Europe across the North Atlantic. flying all sorts of different makes and models and when? Steve asked me if I wanted to come. The grandma and my first question to him was yeah. That's that's awesome. What kind of engine does it have? He tells me it's a lycoming three twenty so immediately. I know a lot about the airplane and engine familiar with Doesn't require call labs hundred sixty horsepower. Usually you know. I know I can operate that engine. I essentially know how it's going to perform and The next day we go to fly the plane and and at least that component of it. I'm very familiar with and it was funny. Because AS WE'RE TAXING OUT. Steve the comment you know if if you know the engine airplane and I thought it was really great validation to hear a ferry pilots. Say That somebody WHO's used to jumping in and out of so many different airplanes so as you transition from an airplane. You know to win that you don't. Here's a couple of thoughts one is like. We just said no the engine if it may be flown that engine. There's only a certain number of aircraft engines out there and up in circulation so it's possible even probable that you've seen that engines somewhere else. The second thing read the pilot's operating handbook cover to cover. I'll never forget flight lesson. I had with a guy named Don styles is to get checked out in a Moonie. This is probably ten years ago and I more than ten years ago at this point and I walked in and Dan said did you read the Ph. And I said yeah he said. Did you read it? Cover to cover every page and I said well I've read most of it. You know I I. I kind of skimmed over the emergencies and I looked at the systems. He kind of stopped me right there and said all right. Let's let's do this and we walked through that book. I mean. We walked through that book. Page after page after page for probably four hours. That was the entire first lesson in the checkout and I paid don for his time there. It was maybe an extreme sort of point. He was trying to make but I learned a lot that day and not just about the Mooney. I learned that. Yes when you show up to get checked out in an airplane. It is not unreasonable or unrealistic. For the I to think that you would have read the Peo- H. Cover to cover the second thing I learned. You'll learn a lot when you do that. I mean really. It's not a huge book. It's the old Glen p Wass general limitations. Emergency Normal for Mints Weight and Balance. And all that sort of stuff right. There's a little format to it. It's one hundred and some pages. Maybe maybe maybe not quite that much but definitely worth the four or five hours. It's going to take you to sit there and go through it. Page by page you will absolutely walk away knowing far more about that airplane than you ever thought possible or certainly than you ever would have. Had you not done that? So checking out in a new airplane. Make sure that you've gone over the PH cover to cover. If you know the engine there you go. You've got some experience in the aircraft and then when you finally go for your checkout flight your with your instructor or your with pilot that's familiar. My belief is every problem in an airplane can be solved by knowing where to look and when to look there so the minute you sit down in that airplane Start to get familiar with those visual references. While you're taxing make sure that you're trying to find the reference that indicates whether or not you are not on the centerline before you even leave the the tide area before the engine's running you might WanNa have your instructor or the pilot. You're flying with sort of down on the on the empty nausea and lift the nose so that you can get a feel for what the airplane will look like in the landing flare but the idea is that from the minute you sit down in that aircraft you are looking for visual reference points that will give you the information you need about the angle of attack of the airplane and the alignment of the airplane along the runway and whether you are not on the centerline a couple of other things you might want to consider are getting used to coordination so slow the airplane way down and do some fast rolling and see if get a feel for how the rudder works is it a is it a heavy push like it sometimes is in town or is it a nice gentle push like you get in a DA forty and finally when you come in to land. Maybe your first landing isn't a landing at all. Maybe your first landing is a go-round get a feel for how the airplane accepts the power application. What it feels like as the flaps retract if there are flaps and how quickly the airplane is able to climb away from the ground. If you're flying something like you add power and boom. That thing is airborne in other airplanes. Like one fifty. Arab at Texas Tail. Drager for example. You're stuck on the ground for a few seconds there before the airplane is ready to fly again so knowing this stuff can can be figured out to some extent by doing low altitude. Go Round

"I had the pleasure of being in Scotland of all things at this time of the year I usually had cooler northwards but this time I headed across the pond to Scotland and Ireland. and what I want to start off with is really something that I hadn't expected and that is the grouse population in Scotland it has virtually disappeared. and as you may know the many of you may know that the the grouse moors in Scotland world famous not only for their management for their numbers of Krause into the second year in a row most of the mortars I have closed their seasons because of the collapse in the grouse population is being caused in part by any worm that seems to be getting into the brains of the crowds and that's obviously fatal for them and they've also had had very bad nesting conditions so the famous grouse moors really all across Scotland and and in England are and are really pretty dire straits and and the only way that a lot of people can keep these mortgage calling is through honey and so for the second year in a row they are facing a remarkable hardship and it just makes me think about how cyclical wild birds are we're seeing it here in United States with the really that. a lapse of block brown's populations and we think it's due to the fact that they've got west Nile in them only she was happy with the sage grouse so it's not just they just don't look mereka problem the other thing that I encounter that I hadn't expected was the salmon runs and also virtually wiped out so a trip that to a place that's what really known through for a long time for its exceptional bird hunting and in release pretty good salmon fishing I found that people saying that well there's there's very little of either in this family situation that's taking place in Scotland and Ireland yeah absolutely parallels what we're seeing in the eastern part of Canada in North America the salmon population is collapsing. and we don't seem to understand why but we do seem to know pretty clearly that the number of salmon are returning to their native streams whether it be in Ireland and Scotland are now in in Canada is is just a fraction of what it was a few years ago which is a fraction of what it was before that so we we appear to be on the verge of of some kind of a collapse in the Atlantic salmon population in even the great river the panel I in in in Norway was the largest salmon in the world with the car are there numbers appear to be in decline to sell its stake international problem one of the boxes being Sprouse than in Ireland and in Scotland which also may be applying. while the Lennix salmon is that the bait fish populations have been so severely depleted due to the commercial falling fleets that salmon are having to go further from their normal feeding areas defined I love food and the further you go whether it's a bird fish the further you have to my great the greater the peril the along with the rest of your journey just like traveling in a car view that a driver will close the coast versus just going one state across it's a much more arduous trip and so the the general belief of those in Scotland Ireland is at the bait fish population that was historically in the feeding grounds relatively close to the code those two codes it has really been harmed in the sailor having to go further which makes them vulnerable to all kinds of things in that migration but the bottom line is we have a really a worldwide or north Atlantic. crisis going on with salmon and that you go to the restaurant obviously but the grocery store and see Sam that that's farm raised salmon it's not the the wild fish that that has driven the economies of these areas for a long time and obviously also driven church Mister berry it's a very sad story to tell the other thing that's happening in Scotland which is happening off the. west coast of Canada is that they have placed fish farms at the mouth these rivers. to raise the commercial fish in the sixth forms are. yes in the context they're they're like a large hog farm over there in the water so the amount of refuse coming out of these fish and the diseases that the fish have been fish farms are working their way into the wild fish population and one of the real experts in Scotland and fish said that what happens is when the wild salmon come back up these rivers and have to swim by these big enclosed fish farms they are picking up once in the life which does not kill the commercially rage fish why does killed the the wild salmon so the salmon if they get lights on them in sufficient numbers it kills and and the lights have been introduced by the commercial fish forms which is basically just it's it's a hog farm acceptance of the water so it is a is a colossal problem we don't know we're our stamina come from if you think about it in a commercial sense for eating we figured out the way to raise them in is in it's in these big in close farms amounts of these rivers but that is what is causing all the disease outbreak in the contamination of the water awhile check so it's it's a sad situation but aside from that I can tell you Ireland and Scotland in the fall our our is beautiful a place as you could ever want to go but the the the highlands of Scotland seeing the courts and heather and its fall colors and we had every kind of weather you can imagine having days when the home side ways so hard you almost fall off a cliff and rain side ways to crystal clear reckless. ocular days when you could look off to the mountain ranges of the highlands in the same and we'll go over to Ireland. situation the Irish coast one one moment it is loosely blowing so hard you can't stand up and it's coming at you and shoots water and an hour later you have crystal clear. sites for fifty miles up the coast to the question of the west coast of Ireland it's it's it's the most one of the most magnificent dramatic coastlines in all the world and it is sad though to see that it's close to being increasingly less productive for our salmon and also what's occurring for grouse so anyway that the bidding report on our having going across. Scotland and England recently and Scotland and Ireland recently what I found when I come back I'd like to talk to really local sense for those who do the Chicago land area on the talk about the route fifty three extension and for those of you who don't live in the Chicago land area I'm gonna spend just a little bit talking about how how really messed up we can see where it comes to our road systems here not only in Illinois Illinois would be a this is a great example but how nationally we we have really worked into some road blocks literally the pun intended let comes to to how we're gonna have transportation but the I fifty three court ordered illinois' and permits for the time is taken to study at the amount of money being spent and now it appears to be according to the headline the Lake County chronicle in a day. hello about fifty three extension I'll be back with just a whole lot more in the outdoors coming up in just a moment thank you to listen to Charlie Parker in the outdoor voice to Chicago in America and now a message for a long time sponsors in northwest Indiana and Chicago land Chevrolet dealers..
