Fresh update on "nuclear weapons" discussed on Woman's Hour
"But at the core, are these two women? Yes. And their friendship. And Ellen, who plays a secret is the Secretary of State. You say, is based on your friend senator Ellen tells her who also passed away in 2019. Right. But there must be a bit of view in there as well, Hillary. Well, there certainly are a lot of my experiences and Ellen was a member of Congress and then she was the person in the State Department who had responsibility for nuclear weapons. So she was someone I thought about constantly when we were writing. Like, you know, how would she deal with this? And one of the many things I loved about her is how she knew how to take being underestimated as a woman. And so when she was negotiating with the Russians on our behalf and the Obama administration to get a deal on lowering the number of nuclear weapons, didn't bother her a bit to have somebody say, well, I think let's go get coffee and she said, no, I'll do that. But when I get back, we're gonna make a decision on this. I mean, she knew exactly how to have a very positive attitude toward whatever was thrown at her in the high stakes world of politics and diplomacy. And that is our Ellen in the book as well. You know, she does have incredible composure. The opening scene of the book, which is phenomenal. She's just on her way back. She's flies back and air falls through from North Korea. It's not gone very well. She's covered in mud. She has to get to what is the State of the Union address, but it's not. So she's going to be in full show, TV cameras there. She's covered in mud. Let me just repeat that. Takes her heels off. What I'm struck by is that in a dialog of hers where she says right, I've just got to hold it together. And it just made me think of you Hillary in situations where you have had president Trump looming over you. You've had people chanting lock her up. How do you keep your composure? What do you tell yourself?.
Jen Psaki Flubs Question Over China Missile Development
"That. Now I want to go to a Jen Psaki whopper yesterday. And were you in the press room yesterday? Yes. Okay. Do you know what I'm going to get? I don't know. Okay. It is cut number 17. You comment on reports that China has saved a nuclear capable hypersonic missile over this summer to the surprise of your professional as accurate and raised concerns about Chinese people's capability. I know general secretary Austin, I should say, was asked this question this morning and addressed it. But I'm not going to comment on the specific report. I can say echo what he said, which is generally speaking, we've made clear our concerns about the military capabilities that the PRC continues to pursue. And we have been consistent in our approach with China. We welcome stiff competition, but we don't do not want that competition to veer into conflict. And that is certainly what we convey privately as well. We welcome stiff competition, caught the eye of every person who follows nuclear weapons and especially hypersonics, Michael scheer. Did that sound like a clunker off of your ear when you heard it? Yeah, it did. I mean, you know. Welcoming stiff competition is what you normally think of in terms of perhaps development of consumer technology or something that doesn't have national security implications. It's hard to imagine the administration truly welcoming stiff competition when it comes to development of nuclear weapons or advanced advanced deployment systems of nuclear warheads. I mean, so yes that seemed to me to be at odd way of phrasing that
North Korea fires ballistic missile into sea, South Korea says
"North Korea has fired at least one ballistic missile into the sea in what south Korea's military describes as a weapon likely designed for submarine based on shows marking possibly the most significant demonstration of the north's military might since president Joe Biden took office the launch came hours after the U. S. reaffirmed its offer to resume diplomacy on north Korea's nuclear weapons program it underscored how the north continues to expand its military capabilities I made a post in diplomacy the south joint chiefs of staff said in a statement it detected at the north's firing one short range ballistic missile it believed to be a submarine launched ballistic missile from waters near the eastern port of simple and that the south Korean and U. S. militaries will closely analyzing
Biden Special Envoy Warns US Must 'Prepare' for Fully Nuclear Iran
"States. Doctor oran, welcome back great to talk to you again, sir. Good to talk to you. Big story coming from the Washington free Beacon. I know that this is something that's gotten a lot of attention in Israel has gotten next to none here in the United States. Adam credo reporting yesterday that U.S. Iran envoy Robert malley, whose name is very familiar to those of us who follow these things, says that the Biden administration is preparing for, quote, a world where Iran doesn't have constraints on its nuclear program. Comments that show how little progress has been made in negotiation with Tehran regarding a return to the JCPOA the 2015 Barack Obama ran deal. Doctor Oren, I mean, if that deal had remained in place, we'd still be dealing with in Iran didn't have any constraints on its nuclear weapons program. I mean, I think that that's one thing that should be said right off the bat. That deal wasn't going to prevent Iran from creating nuclear weapons. It only it only had a ten year pause in it, maybe. And that's only if you believed Iran was complying with it. Yes, that's true. It was ultimately going to his line was ultimately going to have an unlimited nuclear program. The big difference was that while it restrained itself somewhat, and some aspects of the program, just on the nuclear enrichment, not a missile development, not on the development of advanced centrifuges, not on developer warheads, didn't do anything about any of that. But when I was going to get paid a 100 billions of dollars that it wasn't going to spend on schools and hospitals, you can believe that. I think the major thing that rob valley is saying, believe it or not is the truth and the truth that has been around for a long time. I've been talking about on these really news. And that is the United States is willing to coexist with an Iran that has threshold capacity. I mean, the ability is created a bomb within a matter of weeks, because you've been a matter of days. Among the professionals, if referred to as Japan like capabilities, there's Japan has that capability, but of course, you can't threaten to wipe anybody off the map or is not supporting financial payers.

Rt <Speech_Male> so <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> you know at <Speech_Male> the expense. Probably <Speech_Male> of car cargo. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Casey forty-six can <Speech_Male> carry eighteen <Speech_Male> palettes <Speech_Male> including main debt <Speech_Male> cargo because <Speech_Male> as cargo door <Speech_Male> lx <Speech_Male> does not have a cargo door <Speech_Male> and it's limited to six <Speech_Male> pallets smaller <Speech_Male> pallets in the <Speech_Male> belly of the aircraft. <Speech_Male> So that's <Speech_Male> they have <Speech_Male> the ability to flex that <Speech_Male> depending on what <Speech_Male> the air force actually decides <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> in their requirements <Speech_Male> and.

"Even be disappointed about how that worked out but Yeah i i wouldn't expect any faster of a process in this administration about getting out of time but i did want to touch on one other area and that is the burgeoning competition for an aerial refueling tanker because lockheed martin has put out its its concept for what would be a bridge tanker the next piece of that perennial saga over. Who will feel the air force's fleet. It is a burgeoning competition but so far. It seems relatively one-sided especially at this conference we had lockheed martin make a big splashy introduction of their x t the what is known as mrt and we had fancy graphics. Big briefings laying out their plan for increased fuel load bigger range var bigger plane and in response boeing's basically said we're just going to wait for the requirements they have. They're still working on the working out the kinks in the casey forty-six which will be it's entrant and they're just going to wait to see what the air force lays out. Lockheed is essentially taking the airbus mrt platform in putting its logo on it or and making some changes some big changes that are relevant to the bridge tinker competition. That the thing that is the airforce hasn't set the requirements they haven't set up the acquisition strategy so lucky is doing is basically putting their their stamp on what they think the air force should do and of course what what lockheed is suggesting. Are the things that heavily favor their aircraft. So they're are showing that if you give us if you make this competition about who can deliver the most fuel at range..

"Back in june. I think it was that China has a borough ethnic tight capability which is referring to russia's nuclear powered cruise missile. And then there was the disclosure of these huge. Icbm fields silo fields out in the chinese desert over the summer. So there's a lot going on there and so we'll see where it goes. And in his keynote in the beginning kendall talked about those silos and the expansion of china's nuclear capability and said that they're developing a first strike capability and so he spent probably about three quarters of his entire speech. Focus on this china threat. He said essentially a literally. He took this job. Because of china's modernization he wanted to come back to the pentagon and specifically to lead the air force because what he has seen in china's progression and early on in conference potential high note who is basically runs airforce futures. Looking what the air force needs to be talked about this china threat and said time. Time's up. we need to make changes now in an interview. He talked about the twenty thousand national defense strategy laid out a good idea but they've wasn't acted on and it was just like a nice thought but the air force didn't make any infrastructure changes. It didn't make enough fleet change to address that threaten kendall in his speech. We've heard it a lot from the air force but he basically still called on congress that you are the problem. Let us cut these planes or we're not going to be safe right in the last thing i'd note on that is that even though this warning has been going out and all of these claims seem seem credible especially the icbm silos. We could see them. I mean the fact is that There's no estimate out there that says china has more than three hundred and fifty nuclear warheads. At the moment we have fifty five hundred. Russia has over six thousand. they're way behind everybody else. However i mean you know that almost kind of makes the case for why would be interested in something like a fob or hypersonic glide vehicle because that could allow them to overcome some of the numerical disadvantages in certain ways to sneak. Essentially a nuclear warhead pastor defenses. Not not saying that. That's what's happening but it's you know. There is an overall context. And we're also at this very moment conducting a nuclear posture review. That's reassessing the entire nuclear modernisation program and at the same time that there's a lot of scrutiny from congress some lawmakers who are questioning whether we need the global sorry the ground based strategic deterrent program the replacement for the ice for the minute men three icpm or if not getting rid of it then just delaying it and keeping minute men. Three for for ten or twenty years longer. So all of that. It's important context for for that discussion. Well that's all very fascinating. Pretty scary. But i mean there are so many reviews happening right now. I guess we'll see come next february. The outcome of the nuclear posture review the budget. All of these reviews that are in place are kind of bundling up right. So i mean this is what happens in any administration change you know. Basically the by administration kendall just was confirmed Several weeks ago. He's getting his team in place So it's going to take several months for there.

"To space or in space but you know from space to the ground. We asked him about that in his press. Conference know the reporters here at the show and he. He elaborated that he was talking. Specifically about capability for a fractional orbital bombardment system. Or fobs the of this is somewhat well known of a as soviet capability in the cold war that did not come to fruition but was something that was pursued in the nineteen sixties and the idea being really quite interesting i mean is is basically taking. Icbm turning it into more of an orbital launcher by adding if it's a two stage icbm adding a third stage to get it to orbital velocity in but as after you launch it. It's called fractional orbit which means so it doesn't complete a full orbit as it gets into a certain zone that third stage will fire a retro rocket. Release the payload of being a nuclear warhead and Warhead would reenter Really from about one hundred fifty thousand feet really not high at all although still above the karman line so technically in space but just barely but then from that from that release point you could have a very unpredictable trajectory So that would make it very difficult to to spot and also it would come from a different place right now. All of our early warning systems are Sort conveniently located facing north towards the polar ice cap where we think a soviet or russian attack would come from or even chinese. This is the kind of capability where you could actually launch From towards the south where over antarctica come up really into sort of the soft underbelly of our homeland defenses where we have the weakest warning systems. You know so on two different levels being much more difficult to see so. This capability actually had been pursued by china in the past know a paper written by a couple of stanford researchers in nineteen ninety-two that described a program that china initiated nineteen sixty five but was cancelled about eight years..

"Need first of all to understand what we're going to do with them. Perhaps there's not a robust concept of operations available unless you have that concept of operations. Somebody was john kelly was talking about. He's the air combat command chief. That kind of really doesn't form the requirements and the acquisition strategy and all these things and so they want to get that in place before they move too far too much further down the road. But that's not to say. I mean i think they're still going forward with with arrow early operational capability for arrows in twelve months. Follow by hypersonic attack cruise missile in twenty twenty seven or so. I don't see them necessarily slowing by. They wanna get their ducks in a row. Where i think kindles approach will specifically affect things on. Abm as brian was talking about is the on ramp events that we saw stage by you know under the regime of we'll roper. In the previous day was the whole idea was. Let's bring the technologies. Let's see what works. Let's see what doesn't and but there was no real plan to transition those technologies. It was sort of if we can get if we can show that this is valuable than a program office will pick it up. And they'll ask for the funding for it but there was that wasn't there was no prior understanding that that would happen and i think that's the kind of thing that they're probably not going to do now. The way kindle talked about it sounds more like if you're going to prototype demonstration you know if it works. There's going to be a plan before the demonstration to get into a program and get a feel that with the whole doctrine operations logistics planning and all that and that may slow down thing some in in a way however. If if you don't have all those those things they tend to get messy anyway also aligns with some things that have been hearing from people about the budget it. You're going to look for a program if if you're not sure whether it's real as a technology program look for the dollars dot mil. Pf like if there's a tale then then you'll see it and otherwise it makes us be on paper. We're talking about dumb talking about the statement part of the training infrastructure. All of that being put into place now sometimes you know the emphasis on that can lead to paralysis and the acquisition process. That really. They went when it's so hard to get away from an in the last administration because they felt like that things just removing way too slow. And i know that nobody wants to go back to that but to try to you know be at least be more mindful and bring that more into the process and not have it completely ignored. I think that. I mean it. Certainly in terms of advanced bell management system..

"Seo the executive editor for defense in space. And i'm here with defense editor. Stephen trimble and pentagon editor brian ever stein. We're here at the gaylord conference center and national harbor maryland and the occasion is the air force. Association's annual symposium. The event really kicked off with some interesting discussion. It was the air force secretary frank. Kendall's first air force symposium he coming over to the air force's last military role was as the top civilian leading acquisitions for the pentagon and now he's come back after another stint in industry and a long career in defense to lead the air force. So steve. why don't you tell us a little bit about what he had to say. Because was interesting is important. Did put kindles appearance here in time in place in the dod budget process. The program objective memoranda is due. Next month there's going to be finalized next month. That's going to set the basically the first bite in administration defense budget for the next five years and all of these big decisions on in gad on nuclear modernisation on f. thirty five b. twenty-one all of that is in those documents and right now they're being hashed out in great detail within the pentagon between the services to get that done so as a result. They don't wanna talk talk in much granularity about what they're actually trying to do and the specifics of the details but in broad strokes what we did hear from kindles speech today speech this week and his appearances was that there are absolutely committed to the modernisation agenda and the national defense strategy. That really has been in place for several years but he gave us kind of a different idea of a different perspective on how he wants to do. And if you go back into frame kindles career you see somebody who has been at the forefront of defense innovation for you know thirty forty years but definitely reflects a sort of much more of a conventional disciplined pragmatic style than what we've seen the last few years under the previous administration where there was a commitment to really radical changes. You know and speed at almost any cost really. So i think it's going to manifest some changes in a variety of programs whether you're talking about next generation dominance or things like the advanced battle management system. So actually and i can ask brian here. What did you hear about kindles. New approach on abm s. Kendall's took over about a year into chief of staff. General brown's time in his famous mantras accelerate. Change lose and in that time. Abm ems seemed like one way that the air force was trying to accelerate. Change but with kendall coming into office that changes kind of slammed on the brakes. The there was supposed to be..
Israeli PM denounces Iran, ignores Palestinians in UN speech
"Israel's prime minister has denounced Iran and ignored Palestinians in a United Nations General Assembly speech in his maiden UN speech Naftali Bennett made no mention of Israel's decades long conflict with the Palestinians and instead sought to portray Iran as a menace to global society but it appealed to the international community to stand together against Iran accusing Tehran of marching towards the development of a nuclear weapon and threatening to act alone if the world does not take action off the four inconclusive elections in two years but it succeeded Benjamin Netanyahu in June by forming a diverse coalition of small and mid sized parties spanning the Israeli political spectrum I'm Charles Taylor that's not
Initiative Aims to Create Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty
"In the nineteen sixties. The threat of nuclear war inspired nations to negotiate an international treaty to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons. Now there's a similar growing call to prevent the spread of fossil fuels today. Fossil fuels are nuclear weapons. They are what is threatening our health. Our economic future and our global security. That's a poor chair of the fossil fuel non-proliferation treaty initiative. The group is calling for nations to develop a plan to stop producing. Fossil fuels and fully transitioned to clean renewable energy more than four hundred organizations thirteen hundred academics and researchers and cities including los angeles and barcelona have endorsed the initiative. Berman says the treaty is needed because although many countries have set climate goals few of taken serious steps to halt a production a fossil fuels. Almost every single country will tell you that we can't stop producing oil gas and coal because other countries aren't so we'll be uncompetitive. She says an international treaty could help create a coordinated plan for countries to take this critical step

Gen. Mark Milley to Nancy Pelosi: 'I Agree With You on Everything'
"Mike gallagher. Maranda devine weighs in on the general milley thing in the new york post and so honestly if you're radio interviews generals who say well. It's not that big a deal. I mean generals talked to generals all the time you know. I talked yesterday about nancy. Pelosi is involved and that's what she dives into let me quote from her article. I mean journal. Mark milley became so deranged that he cast himself allegedly as the hero of a seven days in may style fever dream in only he could save the nation from trump trump launching nuclear war with china to stay in office. It's an insane scenario. Left wing equivalent of the most far-fetched cunanan conspiracies. She writes but this is what is claimed in. The woodward cost of book entitled peril show alarmed was the tightly wound. General about what he imagined. Trump might do that. He made secret calls his counterpart in china. Promising to warn them if the president ordered an attack. It's clear that milly or people authorized by him leaked details of his delusional daring due to a number of authors. Because he's proud of his actions. His lack of shane bodes ill for the country if he remains the nation's highest ranking military officer as chairman of the joint chiefs of staff the botched withdrawal of troops from afghanistan over which he presided was bad enough. She writes what's next and the most disturbing part she writes of the mili- story is nancy. Pelosi's malign influence. The general seem to treat her as his commander in chief pelosi who was engaged in a blood feud with trump that sent her batty manipulated and bullied. Milly a transcript of a call with pelosi two days after the january six capital riot obtained by the payroll authors has her ranting at about trump's access to nuclear weapons pelosi said if they couldn't even stop him from an assault on the capital who even knows what else he may do and is there anybody in charge of the white house who is doing anything but kissing his fat but all over this. He's crazy you know he's crazy. He's been crazy for a long time so don't say you don't know what his state of mind is. Milly reportedly responded madam speaker. I agree with you on
Worried Trump Could 'Go Rogue,' Milley Took Secret Action to Protect Nuclear Weapons
"Now the big story in washington. Dc and it really did grip the city yesterday is what the general milley say and doom did he say it after the new woodward and cost a book peril has appeared. The white house stepped forward to defend general milley against charges. He did anything inappropriate. Editorials in the washington post and the wall street journal both call for infant investigations and hearings under oath general milley for fear that he is compromised. Not merely american defense into conversations with china but the constitutional order. Now i have said from the beginning two days ago. Hold your fire on this. Wait and see. Acting secretary of defense miller who had replaced mark esperer at the time of the second call says he did not authorize the call and that's extraordinary cause for resignation. Mike pompeo went on fox with hannity last night and made some comments on this. What you to your secretary pompeo number one. I have no recollection of a conversation. Like that. look we were all pretty down. We are about to hand over the reins of foreign policy to what this administration we. We've seen these last eight months. What that means for the united states of america so if someone asked was excited about january twentieth and the fact that we were no longer going to have the capacity to secure american freedom. Count me for being a pretty dark place to. But what's important to know sean. Is you know all this has as a product that somehow there was. This fear there was there was a cabinet members. Run around concern. The donald trump was going to engage in some kind of rogue activity or some kind of act of war to sorta lash out. This never happened. Just it's just patently absurd and so the entire credit for all of this assessment that woodward is now laid out in his book. We'll see what turns out but make no mistake about it. During that entire time the entire time. I served all four years. We conducted orally foreign policy. We had national security team. That was working hard to make sure we make the best decisions. We possibly good. And i think the data set which show that. We did a pretty damn effect job and doing that.
Retired Officer Barry McCaffrey Tries Downplaying Gen. Mark Milley Incompetence
"You to listen to how this, uh, tier one level grifter Nicole Wallace, who when she, you know, she made a few bucks up the Republican party. Then that's right up because they realized she was incompetent. Then she decided she could drift off the left. She's doing that now on MSNBC. Watch this grifter, and when that dries up, she'll try to come back to the Republicans. Again. Here's the dreadful Nicole Wallace again gold medal winning grifter, setting up another general Barry McCaffrey, who again tries to defend Mark Milley and listen to the way this is all phrased in couch like it's no big deal. It's just a guard rail. There is no guardrail. The president is the commander in chief. Jim play Cut. Three. I wonder if you have any insights into Millie as a guard rail. The last one as as Mike's basically explaining, you know, Throughout this whole period, I had rather firsthand understanding of what was going on and go. And it scared me. I was convinced without question that we were on the edge of a ultimate constitutional crisis. I thought it was unlikely that Trump would use nuclear weapons, although he had all legal and constitutional authority in theory command that But there's wonderful bothered me the most. So he took her defenses and acting sect out Constitution says the Senate will be involved in approving senior answers of government. There was no deal left. So I think what General Milley was doing and by the way, routinely the chairman the service Chiefs, then joint combatant commanders routinely contract With their counterparts globally, part of the the occurrence of unwanted combat. Uh, I think he felt it important to not end up with the World War. One start of the war through miscalculation on the part of the Chinese

Yucca teak orange plus the three argus shots were poorly instrumented and hastily executed despite thorough studies of the meagre data present models of these bursts. Are sketchy and tentative. These models are too uncertain to permit extrapolation to other altitudes and yields with any confidence. Thus there's a strong need not only for better instrumentation but for further tests covering a range of altitudes and yields unquote.

President Trump Was No Pacifist, Made His Enemies Listen
"Doing a radio rally. Remember that the genius of rush October 5 2020. And the issue of Iran came up. And what Donald Trump said was Iran knows that they have been put on notice if you f around with us, and you use the word If you do something bad to us, we're going to do things to you that have never been done before. What do you think Donald Trump would do now? In Afghanistan. Every few years back. We talked about this. The Taliban was collecting for an offensive and they were in there. The tunnels that they had built much like Hamas. In Gaza. They located him and they dropped the biggest ordinance. We have Short of nuclear weapon on them, killing likely thousands and thousands of them. Thousands and thousands of them. Donald Trump was not a pacifist. It was not an isolationist. He stood up to Putin. Unlike buying despite all the Democrat party propaganda, he cut off their pipeline. And he severely sanctioned the oligarchs around Putin.
The Taliban Became More Powerful With China and Iran as Allies
"I don't want to send my kids. Anybody else's kids over there. To confront an enemy. That's slaughtered more Americans and were slaughtered to Pearl Harbor. These are the words. Pacifists and isolationists. We're going to get more Americans killed. Including in battle. If we get struck hard out of Afghanistan. Again. What is their answer? What are they going to say? Don't want to send in the Marines. I don't want to send in the army. I don't want to send in the air Force. They have no answer for you. None whatsoever. None. They think the world begins and ends today. The world doesn't begin and end today. These terrorists aren't going away. They're stronger than ever. They now occupy more of Afghanistan than they did before. 9 11. Now more of our weapons than they've ever had. And now they have alliances with the Communist Chinese. The Islam, a Nazi regime in Iran. And they threaten their neighbor Pakistan that has nuclear weapons. The world has just been made much, much more difficult and dangerous. Our men and women in uniform. Somebody else's kids if they're not yours. Somebody else's kid because appeasement and passivity Ultimately lead. Too far more provocation. And bloodshed.

"I didn't say we should be fighting and fighting and fighting in Afghanistan. I said it was neutralized. It was effectively neutralized. When you pull the air power From these Afghan forces her who are used to fighting with the air power from the United States, and you do it abruptly like this. You've created disaster. There are other reasons, of course. This is the same administration that is propping up the Islam, a Nazi regime in Tehran.

Donate one hundred bucks right after this And we'll post the gofundme me link and we do that in the description. Here we will post the go. Fund me leg These people obviously you're going to need help is a really horrific situation. I'm not gonna bother showing guys any pictures or anything right now. Thank you for mentioning that one raw. Says i was red pill just over a year ago and realized i have unknowingly held conservative values all along i work in creative fields dominated by lefties and now see why didn't quite fit in my old friendships with these people are hanging on by a thread as i see their propaganda on social media. How can i be my true self and deal with our differences if you work in a creative field. I want you to think about this. This is your opportunity. Whatever it is if you're a musician if you're a painter if you're a sculptor if you're a comedian if you're an actor whatever it is use this use this. Your truth is being is being slammed up against this evil woke orthodoxy of the day those people because they have chosen occult that tells them what to think and when to think and how to think because of that they cannot be creative they cannot make great art. That's why all the tv shows suck. That's why all the movies now suck. That's basically why everything kind of sucks right now. When's the last time you heard great new music not sitting here saying that none of it exists. But we're in a we're in a time when there's just like a hole of creativity and if you're a creative person. I know that it sucks to lose those friends. Everyone watching this knows. It sucks to lose those friends. I promise you dave rubin guaranteed one hundred percent promise you will find other friends on the other side and if your friendships are hanging on by a thread and it's because the only reason that that threat hasn't fully frayed is because you're really not saying what you think will. Then what kind of friendships are those friendships are. Hey this is who i am. That's who you are. let's do the dance at. Let's do this over decades. Actually this weekend. I have my two best friends of my life. My buddy john. We met the first day of kindergarten. And i've been arguing with him about politics and playing video games and sports with him for now forty one years. He's coming this weekend. My buddy moved to town in third grade who was probably my my greatest political opponents over life now over time we've come together but we used to debate it out from high school in the same. Social studies. Classes in college and beyond. He's coming out this weekend. Find friends that that enrich your life. I know it sucks. I know it feels like you won't get a job in the creative field and all of that stuff and i'll tell you two quick things of friends of mine in the creative thing and how you can suffer it it but why are you still got to do it. I have a buddy who is an award. Winning lighting guy okay. He's done lighting for us in some of our sets and things He is emmy award winning lighting guy. He happens to be. I guess he's probably about sixty five white. He was about a year ago by the higher ups at the studio that he should basically look into an early retirement.

I don't know three things. I really wanted to blow up the department of education. How about that. Let's do that. I'd get rid of teachers unions. Is that even something the president could do. I would well because he can do anything now. He's got a pen and paper. They they let you do anything so. That's pretty good. My slogan would be helping yourself might be get off my lawn by who.

What would you want the government doing for you. absolutely nothing. just give people their money back one of the things. That's really fascinating. This gets to one of the questions earlier cabin newsom and the recall is that newsom right now knows because of the regal he has to do all sorts of stuff so suddenly the homeless thing. Homeless people are disappearing. They're doing they put them in black bags and throwing him out in the river. I have no idea what they're doing. But even where. I live here where. There's a huge homeless problem the underpass that we have where they've been this like homeless. Kinda got a marvel at it. They're building like multiple level tents and all sorts of stuff but in the last week or so he disappeared where there were like dozens and dozens of homeless encampments and tents. And all these things so newsom is realizing that there's suddenly pressure on him to do something and he doesn't want to get recall. Starts doing the right thing. And even he's talking about things like tax rebates suddenly. It's like oh wait a minute you think so. You think that people having more their money is good than stop taking more.

"Airliner called the zero e the e stands for emissions so hydrogen can be used as a fuel in a couple of different ways. You could create fuel cells which are sort of like batteries except that you have to replenish the fuel in them. So typically you're talking about oxygen on one side of the fuel cell and hydrogen on the other. There's a semi permeable membrane between the two that allows ions to flow through from one direction to the other but electrons to flow through a different pathway. And thus you harnessed the electrons for electricity however those would not really be strong enough to power like an airliner so airbus looking at hydrogen as more of a traditional fueled the kind that could be used in combustion. Engines hydrogen is the most plentiful element in our galaxy. That doesn't make it super easy to get hold of hydrogen bonds readily with other stuff like carbon compounds and that means that getting hold of hydrogen usually requires you to pour some energy into the effort. I so you have to make sure that the amount of hydrogen getting out is going to represent more of an energy storage than however much energy you needed to get hold of it in the first place. Moreover hydrogen has some other challenges for one thing to make efficient use of hydrogen. Airbus needs to have it in liquid form in order to hold enough of it to fuel a plane. Now that requires keeping hydrogen at the temperature of four hundred eighteen degrees fahrenheit. Which is pretty chilly. Much colder than any airplane. Air conditioner i've ever felt. Thankfully and hydrogen is very very flammable. So those storage tanks need to be strong and capable of withstanding temperature fluctuations and temperature cycles. And that kind of thing but this is all in an effort to reduce carbon emissions because burning hydrogen doesn't generate Carbon emissions the way gasoline does our jet fuel for that matter and reducing carbon emissions. Is something the airline industry is really looking at carefully. Because it's no secret that your typical flight has a pretty awful carbon footprint associated it so getting that reduced is a big big incentive for airline companies that are in a world that is increasingly moving toward a carbon neutral Approach to doing business. And that's it for the tech news. For tuesday june fifteenth. Twenty twenty one. We'll have some more tech news on thursday and in the meantime if you have any suggestions for topics i should cover like the cf. A let me know over on twitter. The handle for the show is tech stuff.

"I mean most companies are not big fans of regulation so asking more government intervention in these matters to require companies to produce. Reports seems counterintuitive. However it may be that this is both to you know actually make moves to reduce harm with regard to climate change in other words. It might be a sincere effort to try and do something about the climate crisis and it may also be about making certain that other companies are not breaking the rules and getting an unfair market advantage because unlike these companies The the little ones that are breaking the rules aren't actually taking the more expensive route of being accountable. They're taking the shortcut the carbon rich shortcut and thus getting an unfair advantage. But that's just a guess. On my part i don't know for sure in pakistan. The punjab government has announced a plan. That is downright astonishing. And it all has to do with co vaccinations. So various companies and governments around the world have created different incentives to encourage more people to go and get vaccinated and as someone who lives in a state. That still has an embarrassingly low number of vaccinations adults. I can understand that move but pakistan is going a step further. This isn't a get vaccinated and you might win a prize. This is get vaccinated or we shut off your phone according to z. That the punjab government will block mobile sim cards. That belong to people who refuse to get vaccinated. So if you don't get your jabs you don't have a working mobile phone now. On the one hand. I feel like everyone who can get vaccinated should get vaccinated but on the other hand. Cutting off. mobile phones is a pretty tough penalty particularly in a world. Where many of us use our phones as our primary means to connect to the internet and thus to interact with basic stuff in our lives. So i personally lean towards this being a little too extreme for my tastes but on other hand. I can't deny that. Vaccinations are absolutely critical. And that a lower vaccination turnout means there are more opportunities for covid to spread and mutate and potentially get worse which could set the whole world square one or even further back when it comes to fight the disease. So i didn't know how to feel about this one. I do know that if any politician tried to do something similar here in the united states there would be riots. according to the f. f. fifteen universities have formed a consortium that is ineffective a patent troll. So what is a patent troll. Well first let's talk about patents. A patent is a copyright for an invention. So if you invent something new you can apply for a patent and a patent.

"Now that has a law that i'm going to have to cover in a future episode of tech stuff to actually talk about that law what it was intended to do. And how it has been used since it's It's passing because it's a pretty contentious piece of legislation. Some people refer to it as the worst low intech law anyway. The lawsuit was through the court system. It went all the way up to the us ninth circuit. Court of appeals court. Found in favor hick labs and said that the cf a does not apply to publicly accessible data on the internet in other words. You can't say that this was fraud or anything like that. They were just copying information that was available for anyone to see just by going to the site microsoft then pushed for this case to go to the supreme court but as i mentioned at the beginning. The court has declined to acquiesce to microsoft's request. Instead the supreme court has said that the appeals court will have to hear the case again in light of a different court case that relates to this. So i'll probably touch back on this because it is interesting. I also do need to do episode about cf so that will come up sometime in the future also in the future more robots or robo boats if you prefer the us navy is slowly building out what it calls. It's ghost fleet overlord program which sounds like it came straight out of a tom clancy novel but i assure you this is real. The fleet refers to ships that can operate a masui and there are at least four such ships in san diego's harbor right now. There's the nomad and the ranger which both took a long distance journey to get the san diego and most of that journey was taken under autonomous power with with human pilots taking over for things like passing through the panama canal. And then there's also the c hunter and the seahawk in these vessels are all taking part in various trials where the navy is testing out the feasability of pairing autonomous vessels with ships that have traditional human crews on them and to see how they all work together in various scenarios essentially like kind of a war games type thing they also include aerial drones in this approach and a submarine can launch smaller unmanned submersibles through the submarine's torpedo tubes which really sounds like science fiction and a little bit scary. Because whenever the topic of thomas weaponry comes up. I get a bit uncomfortable. I not crazy about autonomous weapons. The tests however are still just that this is not an indication that robo warfare is around the corner in fact maybe says that actual deployment of unmanned systems is likely at least a decade off a group of big tech companies including intel. Autodesk salesforce alphabet. That's google's parent company. Amazon and facebook are petitioning. The securities and exchange commission or s. e. c. to require companies to publish a climate change performance report. So these big companies are arguing that there needs to be some more accountability within industries. And that the sec needs to make certain that companies are following through on their their plans to reduce carbon emissions and to curtail other activities that are potentially harmful to the environment. And you might wonder why. These big tech companies are pushing for the sec to do this. What's wasn't for them..

Lots outside of the convention center where there was very little traffic so the industry as a whole came together Actually the whole story. Bindi three is really fascinating but it all came together in order for video games to get more prominent place within the media landscape these days however that's not so much of a problem right. The video game industry is a multi billion dollar industry with huge companies that can easily grab headlines whether there's a trade show or not however either three still stands as a time when various video game publishers and developers can get together to make announcements and show off. Progress has been made on anticipated titles. Now i've done lots of episodes in the past about whether or not e three is still relevant. And i think you know that depends on what you believe. E threes purpose is that determines whether you think it's still relevant or not but this year we've already seen a lot of announcements from particular companies. That should have some gamers excited. And i'm just going to cover this from a very high level because trust me.

Yeah and then catch up with either you or the people that are around you. So. I have a little sports bracket here. It's very small, which shows you how much I know about sports, but I'm going to rattle off some countries in. We'll see you know which one do you think is more dangerous in terms of nuclear weapons So North Korea vs Saudi Arabia who are you more worried about and why? I think currently. North Korea. Really as opposed to Saudi Arabia intentionally Saudi. Arabia. Yeah once I know more once we more about what they're. That's true. We kind of know what North Korea's doing. We don't really know what Saudi Arabia's doing. They're being very secretive about all of the stuff that they're working on, but they definitely are working on it. So I mean of that bracket, we're GONNA choose North Korea is more concerned are it's the next bracket is Russia or Iran? Russia. Yes. Putin. is at the steering wheel of that disaster. Yeah and they also have a history of this. You know they're historically are sort of it's like we're replaying the Cold War these. It's just are like. Do. You know how many I mean do we know how many weapons Russia's producing? Yearly. I don't know how much they're producing that'd be interesting to see like what we were producing before the trump administration what Russia was doing, and then after because I could see trumping like we'll of Putin has seventy new the year I want seventy nukes many years they they are doing that right now they're not owning up like, Oh, I'm gonNA. Do this kind I'm going to do that supersonic saying my nuke is bigger than your nuke. That's that's literally what's happening I mean yeah. So it's a form of foreplay for the two of them. It's cute. Let's play with our lives. All right. So of that. we have North Korea versus Russia. Yeah. That's tough. Yeah I think I'm a bit more worried about. Tar like WHO's GonNa Trigger Trigger this this doomsday scenario that we're toying with Russia or North, Korea. Man So tough a yeah it's hard. I. Mean I think Russia is like super creepy and unsafe and Yeah. They're totally North Korea's more trigger-happy. Yeah. Definitely. They've ever done any they. They seem trigger. Happy. You don't know what the what they're doing is actually how they feel or just a strategy much like Donald trump yeah. Yeah. Yeah they have a lot. Actually they have so much in common. Yeah Kim. Yeah. They have so much common which is why I think that there is such a fight right now because I, feel like trump's feelings are legitimately hurt that like they're not hanging out as regularly as they used to. No, it's very true. Donald Trump does respect Putin and it was so the three of them three of them are you know the the Trifecta of ego and power so I I guess of the three of them the US Russia or North Korea like. Who's going to pull the trigger? Who's going to push the Red Button? Yeah, I mean I'm hoping that. Hoping it's not us. Yeah. I'm hoping that it's not us. Basically that's what I'm hoping I mean and I. Mean we've been the ones who have done it. So you know there's no. I don't know. It's it's. It's. It's it's a guessing game. But very much how people probably felt during the Cold War is just like, yeah, we watch them in the face I is anyone gonNA punched in the face back. Well Yeah I. Mean it's just a the more the more I read about Chernobyl Nocturnal I'm sorry Hiroshima and Nagasaki like. What we did after after the fact it's just really horrendous. We were not cool. No, and then. Actually what you were saying when we when we had our other chat. About Zillah, like Ariza's article that came out like a cup like a week ago or something that was actually about that. And I was like, oh. Yeah. Research that further a lot of. Art from Japan. Is this ptsd from what we did. And you know I enjoy that genre. So I kinda really feel bad it was like but it is very interesting to see like how that historical event has created an artistic genre and expression. That's timeless. I. Feel. Yeah definitely. Definitely. Definitely. It's very interesting. It's very interesting thread to this sort of discussion.
"nuclear weapons" Discussed on Apocalypse...Now?
"Such and one organization that I like very much called beyond the bomb and it's a bunch of ladies mainly one boy you think base went boy but. Mostly, ladies and it's a youth centered movements. Of course. Yeah those kids are great. And they and they are on college campuses and. Yes essentially there ferry intersectional when it comes to this, it's it's non-proliferation, but it's also the issues of environmental contamination. My film is all about so I like them very much but so they have a lot of you know policy initiatives and one of them is this no first use policy which has just we won't strike I if everyone wants strike first than than the way strikes nobody strikes you know just really decommissioning. Just. Take it and stop making it quit moving with it. Some people would argue that nuclear energy has really helped us. As. A society in humans do you think there's still room for nuclear energy? If it could be done safely and that's where I challenge. That's yes the issue is is. I don't know it's like this. There's this book called command and control by Air Lahser. Who He's the author Assumes Inc.. And some other reefer madness I think as well. But he wrote this about nuclear accidents basically, and you know you see like all these trends where it's always like the young kids that are sent in to deal with these horrific you know disasters and the way that this all the way that the cancer and other illnesses set in this. Period of time when it's incubating so You know usually something won't you won't get. Won't get sick for like thirty years. So you're sending the kids in there to fix this broken something or other that is causing you know some reaction. So you're sending the kid in to deal with this. So he's the one who's GonNa get sick if you send in someone. You know like one of the older folks? Yeah. It's all pretty fucked up. But but but it's like, yeah. Okay. Sending the kid who is like definitely gonNA. GET SICK I? Yeah. Well, we just to Laura to we we send them off to fight. So it's the youth that can be sacrificed I think. This is like something like that happens all the time. So it's like to me if you can't protect like these if you can't protect the workers, you have no business doing this and it's it's sort of it's it's like cooler you throwing the coup you stock refacing. These various things and so sometimes, I think of it this way like maybe what it is that we need is curbing some of these sort of habits that we have. Changing some of the way that. We are in maybe maybe Cova Bull even teach us that doing to use this much energy and why reason this much energy in or where else can we get this energy from where? Yeah. Well Yeah. Of course. Yeah. That too I mean I think yeah. People are putting a lot more energy into their living spaces because they're just they're all the time we had to definitely look into it and to always like this is something also reminds me of natural gas and fracking or something that they're trying to mine a type of energy that we can use but it is also damaging the people that live around people are getting sick people's. Tap Water is tested setting on fire sometimes, which is unsettling but it's just it's so strange that we gravitate towards these sources of energy that just are. Damaging, where we live basically and the people that live on the planet. Yeah. Well, I think also there's this sort of cognitive dissonance that goes on like you are cool with it until you're not cool. Yeah. Like was as one person says in the film she says, you know you're living your life until you get sick and then you're just sick and like that's your world but you're it's it's like you can see it and you can be aware of it until it affects your life. You're not really going to you most likely will not do anything about it unless you're somehow emotionally connected to it and able to. Really kind of like think about or serious about it. You know, but it's it's definitely I would really love is for us to talk about nuclear. And the. Here is like we you know we just we haven't really. You know had these talked about nuclear waste before trump? Really. Keys, sort of brought up all these things that people. You know didn't really think. was worth talking about. Oh, let's open back up this geological repository and talk about how we're going to store waste, and he opened up that dialogue and he opened up the dialogue of, let's make nuclear weapons why we stopped making nuclear weapons. Why don't we use nuclear weapons like it's like he's doing the Serb buffoonery but I feel.
