Dr. Elaine Ingham, Soil Scientist

"This week. Cultivating places women's history month interviews gets to the very basics of horticultural work with soil. The soil world is integral foundational to the plant world. Since the nineteen eighty s mainstream academic soil science has been transformed into a search for biological discovery. It is a fundamental shift from a science that seemed blinded by the theories of the Green Revolution from the nineteen twenty s through the nineteen seventies. The Term Green Revolution refers to innovations intended to increase food supply around the world specifically through introductions of new often dwarfed sometimes genetically modified varieties of cereal grain crops developed for high yield along with introductions of synthetic fertilizers herbicides and pesticides often derived from the chemical byproducts of World War Two the Green Revolution asserted increased production of and reduced pest and disease damage to crops. Managed by these men made inputs over traditional agricultural methods. Beginning in the late nineteen seventies however more voices started questioning the long term results and benefits versus serious disadvantages of these methods. Many of the voices raised in opposition. Women's voices among them was Dr Elaine. Ingham Elaine's work in microbiology. At the Colorado State University for Collins in the nineteen seventy s through the nineteen eighties began illuminating. The incredibly complex living systems at work in healthy soil. Her work is strongly associated with the concept of a soil food web and in the beginning of this century. She is the founder of Soil Food Web Inc and she's here to share more about her work. Welcome Elaine thank you very much. I'm very honored to be here. So you have had a really long interesting career in which you have accomplished and articulated some really interesting. And seminal things for our field of interest Plant life here and how it relates to so much else. Can you describe for listeners? What does your work consist of right? Now especially as it relates to soil and plant life lane right now where. I'm still continuing to work on. What is the soil food web? How is it different in different? Parts of the planet given climate season changing weather patterns. Things like that. How do these organisms interact with each other to help? Plants grow or what are the conditions that results in the disease causing or not beneficial organisms winning out over the beneficial's all those stages of succession and so many people doesn't don't understand that it's the biology that pushes succession along at. What's really altering things so that next stage of plant life will succeed into that system and then of course. Those new plants communion alter the biology in the soil which sets the stage for the next stage of succession. So lots were of information yet to go and only really begun to scratch a surface soil. The MORE QUESTIONS. We answered the more questions. Come up I think is is so often the case so before we get into the technicalities of this big interesting wide world that you are studying take us back a little bit and set the scene for us of of where you grew up and the kind of journey of your work of the people in places in plants that grew into a person. For whom this would be your. Life's Focus Elaine. I grew up in Minnesota so the frigid northlands and I thought every place in the world had twenty five feet of snow in the wintertime. That was just how everybody else lived. It was a kind of a shock when I learned it was different than that so my father was a veterinarian At the University of Minnesota and he would take me into his laboratory. He took me because I was the only one of his offspring who was interested in laboratory work and I remember at the age of six years old. My father sat me down at a microscope. Wasn't quite sure what to do with me. I couldn't be running around the halls getting into trouble. So what is he going to do plops down in front of a microscope and says county coli so he showed me how to make the microscope slides and start counting and he wanted me to do twenty five fields and he figured that it would take me a long time to get twenty five fields. If he coli counted he was right. So a my first introduction to the microscope my father and I worked on all my science projects through the course of middle school and high school and I went off to college at Saint Olaf College in Northfield Minnesota Various Scandinavian Norwegian school. One at the top Pre Med schools in the United States. But I decided I did not want to go to medical school. I had met some of the people I worked as a In the heart hospital as a lab dishwasher during my senior year and discovered. I really didn't like those people. They were too con- focused on the wrong things. I wanted to stand how the world works. Not How you get the patient to spend the most money on the most expensive drugs and you know all of that. medical It was just an anthem. It to me so I decided to go to graduate. School went to Texas am where I worked in Marine Microbiology on the digest organisms in the digestive systems of oysters and freshwater mussels on started understand that you know science purports many ways the academic world reports that it knows everything we found all the answers. And so just ask me. I can answer all your questions and began to discover that that is absolutely not a case There's so much we don't know that it's overwhelming and the methodologies that people often use to try to collect the data and then the misinterpretations that they perform in explaining the world if if you take the material inside the digestive system of an oyster in played it out on a petri dish you're only going to find two or three species because we are so changing the the habitat think about the inside of an oyster versus In a medium in a plastic petri dish that you spread a point one meal of choice tres digestive system and and how many microorganisms well? I looked through the microscope at those organisms and I noted that there were literally a hundred different species of bacteria that I could see a couldn't identify them to genus and species. But I could see there. Were one hundred different things that were totally different. Egmore Doing very different things and so I figured I should be seen that many little colonies coming up on my petri dishes and I was seen one or two. And so how can you use that method? Petri plate methods. Do not allow you to get an inkling of what the diversity is out there in the real world and yet that was the standard of microbiology. That's what you had to do to start the organisms in now. Fill in the blank. Whatever you want to write so there'd been a lot of work done on the ecology of different ecosystems that were just completely inappropriate. When it comes to understanding any of these

"We're going back to two thousand three and here we have single mother Linda Anderson who is depressed and drinking too much and this is because her relationship with a teenage daughters was not good our oldest Sandra was very resentful that she was doing a lot of the mothering her little brother Bobby because Linda just wasn't capable of doing it and he has five or six years old he was little yeah he was with another husband not mate right yes he had a different father now Sandra's sixteen but she'd been through light for someone her age her fifteen year old sister Beth hung out with Sandra most of the time and at this point the two girls were just hanging out together smoking pot drinking alcohol going to parties and they also were complaining to each other what a terrible mother Linda was to them and bobby your little brother Linda was nurse and she is drinking on a daily basis she'd Lester nursing job and was passed out on the Sofa today's she usually begin drinking in the mornings and things just got worse as the day progressed relationships had been unlucky for Linda her less lover was a guy who is just using her have sex he and it seems like she had feelings for him and that was something that her oldest daughter would ridicule her Dr for being stupid about it well yeah I mean the research we did it seem like a very one sided relationship she might have had hopes that he was going to marry her earth you just wanted a six footer right right well in in our kids lived in a rented townhouse in a poor area than most of their friends Sandra was smart but she was a loaner when she was a child but then in high school she started making some friends she just finished the tenth grade and she was pretty popular at that point Sandra Beth's friends all seem to come from families who were more financially stable than they were and that was in difficult their parents would give them money and buy them the clothing they lived in Nice houses some head pools and they didn't have to cook or clean or care for their younger siblings so at least this is the way that Sandra breath or seeing things that it's not fair they thought they deserved the same lifestyle that their peers had your that's a pretty farfetched thought you know what do you mean farfetched but everybody doesn't live the same way you even if their friends seemed to have more money and more privileges but as we know as you get more mature you realize every household has its issues problems and it always looks better from the outside and that's how they saw it for toby and unfortunately they really held it against Linda she got the brunt of the blame for that year well 'cause when was unable to do with the girls wanted to do I know but doesn't it just irritate you that it's always the mother when the divorce happens weren't they met at their father it's he's taken out of the mother who is working off to take care of you you're I don't have a good answer for that seems to work we didn't seem to hear much of the father in this story now not a lot yeah so then Linda meanwhile she hadn't given up on the man who she was interested in marrying but he apparently wasn't this is an older guy who's an attorney and she thought that her life in a life for her children would improve as she got him to marry her that's just not the way I look at things as well I guess not but we weren't there we don't know what he was telling her I know he could have been misleading her true Linda wants to told Sandra her daughter that this guy was the best lever she ever had and that's something share with your kids isn't it adds inappropriate yes and then she told sander that she stopped taking birth control 'cause she's hoping to get pregnant and lure him into marrying her now that's stupid and to tell your team daughter something like that is doubly stupid and Santro is a pretty smart girl so that made her angry she already felt like she was a mother to bobby in the last thing she wanted was for her mother to bring another child into the situation so even though they condemned Linda's lifestyle these two girls were drinking and doing drugs with their friends they were smoking pot skipping classes but they saw their drug and alcohol use is different because it was a social thing they saw Lima's drinking a secretive and pathetic and Linda did keep bottles of alcohol hidden and she denied having a drinking problem obviously her life was suffering from it things were going downhill for her and subsequently for her children she wasn't able to keep a job she had a degree issues nurse but you can only show up for work so often with alcohol on your breath through being visibly drunk and you're not gonNA keep John Exactly but you know there were also indications that although Linda did suffer from alcoholism she did care about her kids and at the heart of her she wasn't a bad person when Lynda was working sh actually worked very frequent and long shifts to help provide for the kids. Sandra would be called upon to babysit bobby but Linda we call home often to check on them and then Sandra would be annoyed by that. Linda's CO workers at the local hospital had really good things to say about Linda she was kind and carrying she was a hard worker but you know she did have a drinking problem and she started showing up for shifts with alcohol on her breast which was a dealbreaker of course or yeah it's not GonNa be good for your job longevity is it now especially when you have peoples lives in your hands but and you said this I'd emphasized that her coworkers pretty much all had good things to say about her I think you have to realize that alcoholism is a disease and have some empathy here and I think there was just a huge lack of empathy from Sandra Beth which I understand they're teenagers northland that's the job of teenagers to feel like your parents are a bunch of jerks yes in treat them badly right so although Sandra resented her mother's earlier to keep her job she was even more unhappy to have her at home all the time Sandra Beth told their father that Linda wasn't there for her kids as she should have been and that are alcoholism was just getting worse now dad's response according to the girls will see told them to call the police if it was unmanageable vice dead so here's Linda she's unemployed she's in love clearly with the wrong guy and she's deeply in the clutches seven addiction so she and her kids clearly need help she wasn't functioning and Sandra blamed her pretty much for everything that was wrong with their lives she really did so bobby and Beth went to spend the summer of two thousand two with their grandparents in Europe now bobby was only there for a few weeks so when he returned Sandra had to take care of him he was Beth Sandra's half brother but only spent weekends and holidays with his dad so his dad wasn't really a fulltime father either Nori wasn't when Beth returned in the FAW Linda was in really bad shape and Sandra hated her more than ever he was convinced that things would never improve and she wanted to convince that that killing their mother would solve all their problems so she'd taken a big jump over this time period Armand doesn't even care about us the Stewart right now back in two thousand one Sandra had called the children's aid society to report abuse by Linda's but Sandra in Beth didn't say anything about Linda's drinking at that point Linda told the social worker how great her daughters were and she said that they were both responsible and really helped her out watching their little brother while she was at work so they kind of did the cover up thing when the social worker showed up but then a couple of months later Sandra called again and she told them that her mother was an alcoholic who had made them lie to the social worker when they visited last time she said that Linda was glint mean and do not offer any discipline but see I s really didn't believe her and didn't get involved so in Sandra's mine she dreamed of being a novelist a movie producer a rock star and she talked about more practical job she'd like to do like a flight attendant or a paramedic but

Moussa Sissoko admits getting too tired playing in Pochettino's diamond

"Off to the seven to to walloping enhanced by and this is what they're spurs midfielder Moussa so to say we get tired too quickly. When we play with a midfield diamond jubilee it was October Fest Foot by Northland don't think Soco saying anything and he didn't see with our own? Is that what what do you make of him and she going so public with with this criticism so some of these guys do not. I guess they haven't had media training. I guess they do an odd question. Well you just have no commonsense right as it pertains to your essay question. You don't have to answer it. You can dance around did even if you feel that this is the case what is there to gain for Mussa's so come on and say we get too tired when we play in diamond what somebody's GonNa feel sorry I four u Somebody's GonNa say oh. I'm so sorry that you have to run into midfield. I'm so sorry you have to tackle people. I'm so sorry that you have to get it close to midfield player. Come on man honestly this is we're talking about Champions League and we're talking about playing at home playing against via Munich. We're in this guy is bringing up. We're getting tire. Come on is this further sign Shankar and the beam plenty already that the players and the manager getting further apart yes yes I see that for this reason this as far as I'm concerned the only players in the park who have any right to complain about getting tired because of nineteen minutes are you wing box given what's asked of them in modern day football. If no you complaining about getting tired of formation it points to something and fog far deeper than than just answering a question incorrectly my opinion and given what we've seen from Spoo- so far this season this just visa Mussa's who looking for an excuse to try to explain their poor performances looking for an excuse that somehow absolves him mm-hmm and the rest of the midfield of any kind of responsibility furthermore kind of throws a manager under the bus so which is why answer my question your your question the way that I did. I think it's it's it's alarming to have a player answering the question that Frank. What did you make of what's going on a spur from a farming? The statistics are pretty stop. They've won nine. They lost twenty eight games in all competitions. Why why the exceptional season last season where the their right level? I'm not sure maybe they were playing at one hundred and forty percent. Maybe they were fortunate. Let's say lucky when you see Lucas scoring three goals in the semi final against away from home when you everybody thinks it's it's dead we want something from the Spurs may be the not able to recreate because they were here. It was too much for them and they just came back as human being this season they showed the weaknesses reina what the MHM weaknesses where Eden by a real fortune last season and now you see the conflicts coming up always dot com and from USA Sissoko saying to the Koch. We don't want us to play later because I think we don't like the way you make us play and prominence becomes becomes reality when when in fact you can't answer the questions on the field and last year they were able to do so because they were playing at the maximum because they oughta spirit together and because they were lucky did not anymore in those three statements interesting you'll photon over achievement because guys would look at the starting eleven it is still a fabulous team on on on paper. It is not an argument be made that they'd just been a victim of great by inside on on Tuesday night but also suffering and they've done that before you would say it's just a slow start. If you don't go back to the end of last season on how much of a struggle it was other than Champions League and maybe making the deep running Champions League mass a lot of the issues that we're going to get over chief. Did they overcharged grossly over achieve. You can meet well. I mean even even even the biggest I fan will be like attendance. League final. I look over achieve got fortunate but they took advantage of that good fortune and give them credit for that but clearly there's been issues with this his team since deep deep issues back then that they haven't resolved they did not answer it through the summer and they have an answer yet and early on in the the season for me. It's not only the players is not only puts it. The it's just a whole feeling oh spurs right now seems to be while they go brighton and Walford Nixon the primarily that may be just the remedy that they have all due respect to break known. What extra chime is where we onto your twitter questions Enj- you can see it every day on Youtube Channel

Why Do Flying Squirrels Glow Hot Pink in UV Light?

"Today's episode is brought to you by smart water twenty years ago. Smart water, reimagined, what water could be from thoughtful bottle designed to supporting smart people who are changing our world through fresh thinking. Like, you smart water has added electrolytes for taste and great tasting water helps you stay hydrated, feeling refreshed and ready to take on your day. Refresh yourself with smart water. Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, rain stuff, Lauren Vogel. Bam here. It's amazing. What you can find. If you shine a flashlight into your backyard trees, a biologist in Wisconsin have made a rather startling discovery that way in part startling because it apparently hadn't been recorded until now three different species of flying. Squirrels specifically southern northern and Humboldt flying squirrel, which are found across North America and into Central America sport light Brown for that when spotlighted with ultra-violet illumination lights up a hot bubblegum pink the phenomenon occurs on both the top and bottom services of the flying. Squirrels though, it's the underside of a flying. Squirrels carriage, including the flaps of skin that spread out when the squirrel glides from tree to tree really glows Jonathan Martin a biologist at Northland college in Ashland. Wisconsin made the discovery in the forest one evening just by shining a UV flashlight into the tree canopy he was looking for lichens, which are certain type. Of frogs and flora that light up in UV light. That's when he heard the church of a southern flying, squirrel as the squirrel glided by he shined the flashlight on it. And he saw a flash of fuchsia. Martin and his colleagues soon found themselves examining the skins of flying. Squirrels at the science museum of Minnesota. And the field museum in Chicago. They took photos of the skins under visible, light and ultra violet light all but one specimen of the gliders glowed pink that has been variously compared to bubble gum dayglo and lycra from the nineteen eighty s there is also the study republished in the January twenty third twenty nineteen issue of the journal of Malecki, the pink is caused the researchers say by the furs fluorescence, which is what happens when light is absorbed in one wavelength and emitted in another you may remember an episode. We did about how scorpions fluorescent bright green and ultraviolet light some birds also have this trait some fish too few mammals do though flying. Squirrels are nocturnal and are most active at dusk and dawn, no other squirrels in North America are known to possess this ability to floor s including tree squirrels like the eastern gray though, there are over. Two hundred and fifty squirrel species around the world and to be fair. The researchers have not yet tested other species for the next question is what purpose could this fluorescent serve. Humans can't see ultraviolet wavelengths except under special lighting, but other animals can one theory suggests the pink is used to confuse als, which as it turns out also have undersides that Flores a similar pink ELS prey on flying. Squirrels among other mammals, perhaps the squirrels evolved to mimic als. So as not to be eaten by them another theory, which is already being challenged is that the pink attracts potential mates a flying. Squirrels have mating seasons. But their flamboyant fluorescence is available for viewing year round. Anyway, it's not even clear that squirrels can see in UV wavelengths. Ultimately, the researchers point out that age old impetus of science, this is proof of how much we don't know and still need to learn the study concluded the ecological significance of this. Trait warrants further investigation. Today's episode was written by Jimmy Allen and produced by Tyler clang for I heart media, and how stuff works for more on this and lots of other topics.

How Germany got to 40 percent renewable electricity

"Support for climate cast comes from Bank of America as one of the largest global financial institutions Bank of America is in a unique position to help society. Transition to a low-carbon economy Bank of America NA member FDIC. Germany reaches forty percent renewable energy. What can we learn from that energy transition? I'm NPR chief meteorologist Paul hutler. This is climate cats. Germany produced forty percent of its electric power from renewables in twenty eighteen emissions. There are on pace to fall sixty two percent from nineteen ninety levels by twenty fifty. That's an unthinkable greenhouse gas reduction pace here in the US. But in Germany, many say that's not fast enough. Toby mature is founder and director of energy consultant e three analytics in Berlin, we talked via Skype about power and emissions trends in Germany wind power is the largest slice of the pie. But one of the remarkable things of Germany's overall energy transition is that they've succeeded where a lot of other countries in a lot of other parts of the world haven't done as well. And that's really diversifying as fully the different sources of renewable energy that they draw from. So it's not just wind. Not just solar. They've really gone for the full basket of domestically available renewable resources. So Germany is well ahead of the US. With government action on climate how about public opinion on climate solutions. How is it different? From the US awareness is dawning more and more that climate is starting to have very real impacts on things like agricultural output. Yeah. We had our dry summer in decades in Germany and a lot of farmers have seen reduced yields pretty much across the board. And when it starts to really have those kinds of across the board impacts on rural communities on farmers on on on average citizens through higher food prices people. I think recognize the need here more. So than in North America. I think in general for really taking action on climate change. I think in Germany in particular. They've also seen the benefits of taking climate change seriously by investing in the energy transition. They've been able to create a lot of jobs, and that I think has been really critical ingredient to maintaining public support at such high levels us. Site, Germany as a leader in the energy transition much farther, along than the US, what can the US learn about what Germany has done so far one of the key ingredients to making it work and also to making it popular has been the citizens can invest themselves. So it's not just large utility companies or large foreign investors building big projects to achieve the goals at the government sets out in the beginning. The whole transition was driven very much from the bottom up by individuals and communities and farmers who could put their own money on the table. Go to the Bank at alone and invest in new sources of generation and earn a decent return doing. So I think that's really one of the key ingredients that many other countries have continued to struggle to get right is making it such that the participation can be broad in the energy transition. And I think that's really at the heart of what's made Germany, so successful Toby tour founder and director of energy. Consultant E three analytics in Berlin. Thanks for sharing your insight today. Thanks ball. A pleasure. My name is Shannon Mortenson. And I am the city administrator for the city of Warren, which is in the northwest corner of the state population of sixteen hundred people for three years, we've traveled over Germany learn what they're doing for climate protection measures in the North Rhine-Westphalia state. And that really is kind of what catapulted how we approach energy conservation and sustainability in Warren now, you know, you've traveled over to Germany you've learned what they're doing. And it just gives you some credence in what you're doing back in your community. People are interested. It's a conversation starter are shining project right now is we are doing thermal imaging with drones with Northland college. Our plan is to take that data allow residents to come in and see where their energy losses. So they can do the energy upgrades. They need to their homes as long as they see a direct benefit. They are all on board. I mean, there's climate change is happening. Of course, you can have lots of different conversations on your thoughts on climate change. But something is happening. And if it isn't that much of an effort to change our life is that could make a difference for future generations. I don't know. What's wrong with them? That's climate cast.

The city also used eminent domain to seize several properties on the lot residents that lived in those buildings were paid to leave. So the city could clear the land of all existing structures.

He told the Chicago Tribune in two thousand two that there was no guarantee the studio would ever be built over the next few years news articles would declare the project back on again with a vengeance. But then the scale of the project was reduced to a third of the original plan other critical funding fell through and the movie studio never broke ground. Because the movie studio failed. The land was still available for something else. Something even more dramatic and high profile. Let's talk for a moment about presidential legacies.

It looked like it could have been the headquarters of tech company in Silicon Valley, the U ic- plan also included an elevated Greenway like New York's Highline and it planned for a new bus route. That would have connected north Lauderdale to the university campus. Obama's former chief of staff and mayor Daley successor Rahm Emanuel committed to donating the vacant land to the Obama foundation. Emmanuel also pledged to reopen station along one of the city's public train lines to better connect the library to other parts of the city.

"All through the winter of nineteen ninety six the cleanup continued removing the debris was as big undertaking as building the mountain had been block club. President. Gladys Woodson had watched in those early days as John Christopher set up shop and allowed trucks to dump a block from her home. Now, she watched the process, slowly rewind goon. Wow. Now, we valley is gone. It's going to be gone. Can you tell that was like? Dusty? With the trucks coming in to get the the. But at least they spray the street down, which Chris John never did never did. Northland L residents had conflicting feelings about the cleanup. And all this new attention being paid to their neighborhood on one hand, they were glad to see the dumps go on the other hand, they resented the public figures who had not seemed to care about their neighborhood before the corruption probe. Here's Rita Ashford who had protested the dumps and her daughters, Sharon and Michelle loan. We out the fighting that. Shovel, bro. And it was all like a puff of smoke. And everything changed his appeal. Right. It's just was there. One day going to Nick. They will be rolling all night long getting it out of that once it broke. And when you looked up the pow went from, you know, the kids used to run up and then on the top it went from being up. That's it just like a horse if it hadn't been for civil shovel. We still would have been dealing with down probably right now today. Yes. If it hadn't have been specific shovel, we would've still been fighting that. Others asked the obvious question. Where was all this attention and scrutiny when the problem was simply illegal dumping in a black neighborhood. Here's MS Woodson. Again, we live through five years of this stuff. You know? This people that don't hate Asmaa tech, the people that own own oxygen machines that you know, we have few people to move out of the neighborhood just move because they could no longer stand the dust and stuff. In late February nineteen Ninety-six about five weeks into the clean up the environment focused public radio show living on earth, central porter. Shirley, Jehad to check on the cleanup. She visited north Lauderdale and talk to people who lived in the two apartment buildings that stood on the very same lot as the dump one of the people she interviewed with Keith wardlow, a father of two who worked as a custodian at a local university the view from Keith ward, lows back porch isn't pretty, but it is awesome. It is simply called the mountain seven hundred thousand tons of debris. The mountain UCI tol at this. See I tol at is. Why? Now that amount.

To me. You know, if you so concerned about what the head. What why are you into the neighborhood trying to see who got infected from from the dirt, you You know? know? That's that's what you should have been doing firs who took some money. The wardlow family had suffered for years living next to the dump now the damage to their home, and they believed their health continued during the cleanup. He's one of those shakes every time trucks roll in and out of the dump site. He always keeps his windows closed and covered with plastic. Innovation effort to prevent dust blowing off the heat from settling in his apartment. He says his four year old son Keno has contracted severe asthma. The boy's mother.

Transition to a low-carbon economy Bank of America NA member FDIC. Climate challenges and opportunities in Africa. I'm MPR chief meteorologist, Paul hunter. This is climate cast. You know, it's fourteen thousand miles from Capetown South Africa to Minnesota but climate changes in sensitive climate zones. Like Africa can have a much wider impact. I talked about that with Matt Brown. He's the nature conservancies regional managing director for Africa. You know, a lot of the East African countries are seeing significant changes in the rainfall patterns, maybe as predicted to get quite drier. And there's a lot of food security issues and north and central Africa. So Africa's a big place Paul. There's fifty four countries over two thousand languages as you know. So it's a little bit of different shifts and impacts in different parts of the continent. So how do you decide which countries need the most resources we looked largely at where we can improve large intact systems that have the ability to be more resilient to climate change. And allow species to move and shift protection is has a higher return on investment than restoration. So a lot of our work is focused on. On finding intact ecosystems, and they all include people, of course. But finding ways to make sure that those systems persist over time like many journalists this year met we reported on Cape Town's, low reservoir levels earlier in the year. I'm curious about your perspective on how that played out this year. And as the rainy season finally arrived, similar to California. There's a lot of issue with agricultural offtake both for fruits as well as for vineyards. And then there's the consumption domestically the days euro proclamation in Cape Town brought a lot of awareness to water issues and water scarcity, but I think it helped create more willingness for behavior change, but the threat is still out there as it was yesterday. So we're we're moving out quickly to put better adaptation and better practices in place to try and secure water for the long term. And I asked this question to a lot of different people in a lot of different ways. But we're seeing climate change impact the hydrologic cycle where it's raining and how hard it's. Raining is shifting. How important is water in the work that you're doing water is critical in the work that we do. And so the changes in the hydrologic cycle as a result of warming. Global temperatures can be pretty catastrophic unless we are able to reduce that amount and manage the movement of wildlife access to water for people living in urban environments and have better buffer systems. I do feel like that there's a lot of positive interventions that we can pursue but the water cycle, and how hydrology is potentially going to be impacted is quite severe. If we just sit back and maintain a business as usual scenario, Matt Brown nature conservancy regional managing director for Africa. Thanks for sharing your perspective today. Thank you, all my name is Shannon Mortenson. And I am the city administrator for the city of Warren, which is in the northwest corner of the state population of sixteen hundred people for three years, we've traveled over Germany learn what they're doing for climate protection measures in the North Rhine-Westphalia state. And then they come over here. See what we're doing? You know, one of it uses low hanging fruit that we learned the first year we were in Germany was they don't have any paper products, plastic product styrofoam products. So when we came back to the city, all we removed all of that. So now just kind of started it, and then now we have a mandatory curbside recycling program, but are shining project right now is we are doing thermal imaging with drones with Northland college. Our plan is to take that data allow residents to come in and see where their energy losses. So they can do the energy upgrades. They need to their homes as long as they see a direct benefit.

When we were in Germany, you know, they would always say five hundred years from thousand years from now they're not doing their energy transition right now because of the here and now it's for generations later. And I guess that's why I think that this is important. Also is I want my great great grandchildren to enjoy the same quality life in northwestern Minnesota that we have and in the whole country the whole world. And if it isn't that much of an effort to change our life is could make a difference for future generations. I don't know what's wrong with that. That's climate cast.
