Protesting farmers threaten to block railway tracks if demands not met
"Hundreds of thousands of indian. Farmers have been protesting outside new delhi for the past. Fortnight they're demonstrating against prime minister. Narendra modi's nufemme policies which they believe will hand. Their agricultural land overtook business. The unrest is spreading throughout the country and echoes. The recent demonstrations over the new citizenship law. Well is this now becoming a test for modi's groupon power to tell us more we're joined by tricky kapila who teaches indian history and politics at the university of cambridge. Good morning to schutte. What are the government plans for culture. Hello are so for some time for some long time. There has been a line on side of economic reform was in india that its agricultural sector needs needs to form so it's a complex system because the pricing of particularly wheat and arrives essentials tour staples is also set by the government. So it's a very complex system of procurement and pricing which is now being opened to as tour of corporate interests of big business. So it's really in a way for for decades because one of the things that happens in its becomes. Independent is that the farming sector is is left tax to kind of overcome the colonial legacy which had been seen a series of famines and as a result the first independent government in india decided. That farming will be taxed. So it's it's it's part of a knock history to buck. These reforms are pretty a pretty as it will. I wouldn't brutal but they're quite. Yeah it's one of about about. They're pretty brutal. They will allow. they will not allow the small farmer. The one acre farm off owns say just a little bit of land to survive and So the government is trying now to open talks it did not expect such a backlash it. It did expect some backlash to come a from a couple of northern states. It was prepared for that but it had it wasn't prepared. Moody was not prepared for aid holding power of off these farmers. Because they've actually gonna come a come and taken over the borders of the capital of the city the capital city in in deady and there are you know the camped up there and so it's it's interesting and because of the farming psycho but because farmers are not due to any great amount of farming till april. This could be a long haul. This protest is not gonna go anytime soon. And i mean it's not just about farm as the government's been trying to push through other reforms to the two sectors which the government has been interested in this particular has been interested in one us label laws and the other is a farm laws. Now movie if you recall has never blinked. He democratized the calling me overnight. This has come without as the parliament's sitting the winter session of parliament has not sat down. It has come to an ordinance so it's pretty as it were direct legislation the prime minister himself and his and his office. And we'll see whether this policy unlike say this ship amendment act which of course in the buddhist of that got interrupted partly because off the off the pandemic. Roberto bet that also is on the chef. But this this is really a set of laws are going to be a test of modi's true political metropcs the keys thus far he has been he's been pretty brazen in putting his agenda forward and pushing it through and taking the cost as an whether it's international opprobrium or criticism from intelligence. He's kind of brushed that aside. This is different because this this matters to a vast vast vast majority of north indian and usa bits of southern farmers So how rattled is mode. I mean is this a real threat to his power. I mean it's hard to say because aden he's not due to face a mandate for another four years so he's fine at that level but it is also interesting that every winter as your opener stated now does the second winter where there are there are large scale protests in the capital city over now a different a different issue. It took me shows that his agenda is not one of consensus his agenda whether it is in the economy because people fear that this would bring in a big corporate interests people who backed him like embodies audio danny's who will then as it were by big land takeover farmland but also take over a not just land but it was the entire system of buying and selling them into into the retail sector. So i think that real dangers in terms of the way in which corporate corporatization of indian agriculture and on the side but he has had some positive as it were support from the economic liberals in your delhi's intelligence circles or policy circa. This is a brief set of reforms. And he should it dozen this debate both in terms of the the policy world. But i think the scale of the protests are we seeing signs of blinking on the side of moody because he has now had got his representatives to talk to a farm and the leaders of these these and they cut across party lines. These the is these unions that have come come today so but those talks now. They've had two or three series of talks all failed. So let's see. This is of that moment whether he will make some concession. Particularly on pricing is what one gathers. There might be some concession. But i don't think the laws which is what they want. These three sets of laws to repeal. The farmers demand is pretty high. So i'm not sure where the room for maneuver is going to come from. And i mean the purchase had a knock on effect. I mean for instance. I understand that chon sports being badly affected. Yes i mean. The city is all the deli sort of sits between two or three very major. You know it's it's the route into central india. And the barricades have been erected before the i was going to come and you know because there there's so many farmers just lifted the barricades them aside and took over a the entry level the entry point into city so that we know that means good Goods shocking all of that is affected. And you really can't get out of the city lock as it were neighboring states in you know look at can bring in goods into into into the capital so i think a transport of course is a deeply affected but it's also very bad for moody to see You know the this kind of resort and it's not bad for his image if you have hundreds of thousands of peasants with their families you know it's not just been but the families a camping actually doorstep and and if if he looks like he he he doesn't engage with them he will also come across someone who's not die logic something. He's not met journalist. For instance. i think that will that will dent his it identifies image if he so. We'll see it's kind of interesting moment In whether he. I said whether he not concede something blink. Make some concessions. Or whether he's going to sue the remain ideologically a commit did to these reforms and we'll take the political slack as it comes

The most related to the interview we had today is the episode I recorded. From the Amazon. When I visited in December for three days the remote area of the Brazilian Amazon, Rainforest There you will find. The sounds of the Amazon the birds. The people talking on so I I really made an attempt to. Create kind of. Radio piece. An audio Jordan. Hope you. Will you find connections there? And maybe it will complete the puzzle at least a little bit. Will help you understand. The dynamics of the rainforest and other episode that I really really live that. Yeah gives them. A sense of discovery, a sense of joy. About the nature that surrounds us. Is the episode I did with. The Nassar's former climate science communicator Laura Tenenbaum episode is called where the challenges the reason opportunity. I really liked talking to Laura and she was supposed to visit Ukraine in April this year. They remember when we were speaking. I said well. I will certainly be there i. saw it on her website. I will be there one hundred. We will meet in person. And then the pandemic happened and the lockdown, and of course no-one traveled anywhere. So this is also kind of in a way. Related to burn. To to this episode. In the in the in the personal level. Episode from last week if you haven't heard it already with. More on climate, adaptation and resilience in the remote rural areas, and in particular, the islands around the world is also. Nature bio-diversity. Related and I I can certainly suggest you go in listening to that one. Anyway.

"As recently had somebody who all of a sudden started putting comments in started sending messages link sent about ten messages in the matter of I. Don't know a couple hours all of a sudden This is a scam. That, we're based in Canada and we're I. Don't remember the nature of it. It was berry out of the blue. But it was all completely false. None of information that was being said was It makes me realize there's one of the most important pieces, and there's always gonna be people that are concerned because there are scams like that are happening so the best thing that I've been able to do until this point is just to be in communication in constantly trying to provide updates with people on where everything's out of the project. Making sure that again people can go directly to the. Page to see US listed. There might go as they continue to grow. This is to ideally grow into a certified. Be Court. which will allow us to have more channels of transparency into the supply chain? One of the other things that I've been taking the extra step four is had the whole project vetted through an organization called the World Fair Trade Organization Day. Make sure that out projects like this for their integrity with using fair trade practices. So I've taken. Many of the steps that I can to really ensure that people know that there is integrity at the heart of this project, but I also realized that might okay. I get to understand that. I am committing to fact that are going to be people that no matter what I do. No matter. How good a you! It will come out of nowhere. Tell me that it's a scam and I had to like really reconcile that. Do I want I want to do this like do I want. Am I ready prepared to like I really impassioned about this? I really want this project work, but am I. Prepared for you know the toll on my own personal. Mental. Side of things because I will just art the process and I think that's that's the case with anything. Matter what you're involved in no matter what you do, there's always gonna be people that just simply don't believe I. Think did a project like this is GonNa? Take on even more of that. I have been myself out there for almost a year now and there are always people who say knowing your line. No, it's not to what you say in December we. We had a very nice talk with more a ton of. A former, probably you know her former science communicator from NASA. She is by the way might be your neighbor somewhere in California. She I think she's from the base of the right now and She expressed one interesting thought. She says you know. How much time does it take? A scientist to. To to set up an experiment to collect all the data to run, it's the stats to come up with this study to write it down to correct to add into peer review before something released into into the world. And how much does it take a climate denier? But we were about. Climate issues. How much time does it take a climate denier to one? Comment you're. So, yeah just. Keep doing what you're doing and. Everything else will follow in needs to people like that are everywhere another thing. I wanted to ask you. This is the question that was retained in my head for a while when I am trying to expand every plastic item you tape is GonNa end up. You never know where how do you explain people who are not from South America, who are not leaving in the rainforest, so Europeans Americans norse Americans. That rainforest is you know? Is it common issue of everyone who's leaving on planet earth how to educate people in this regard? Yeah, that's one of the most. Important topics or projects like this how to get people to care enough of because at the end of the day. Compassion is an amazing. Attribute that a lot of us have, but as humans we are very self serving and no matter, even the most compassionate us end of the day. We're very. Much fueled by our own personal. Desire to survive and thrive, and so there does need to be some sort of a personal connection, and I think that you know people really just need to understand what really is the opportunity that's being given to each and every one of us right now with Corona Virus I. Mean You and I are sitting here speaking across the world. And we're literally experiencing the same exact thing granted. We have different elements to it within our own regions, but like we're all going through this global be set a way that everybody's connected, and so I think it's very important for people to understand that this whole thing is enacted. We are all connected in a much more profound way than we understand. Especially when it comes Amazon rainforest, they call the Amazon, the lungs of the planet or reason, the sheer amount of not only oxygen trees create which a lot of people will argue that the vast majority of the oxygen that's created in the Amazon is just immediately consumed back into the ecosystem, so we can't count it towards our own oxygen, but the reality is the whole system is such a living breathing ecosystem in all of the carbon. It's being. Being stored within the ecosystem within these rainforests is massive too, and it's the thing that I don't think people realize that all of this carbon. The trees store is being held contained from the atmosphere. As soon as you cut these trees down, that carbon is just released back into the atmosphere people to understand that it's not just about well all weather. Not these trees will create oxygen that is necessary for me to breathe, but it's seeing it as like. If you, look at the whole year yourself. The whole earth is your body, and you think about one of your lungs is about to fail and go out..

"A comprehensive approach where we're protecting I were reinforcing areas that have already been damaged, and we're building out a whole economic ecosystem in this area to really try and maximize the amount of impact. You can have with with this model. How is it for the charity for this organization to work in by the way which country? Where have you started in Ecuador Ecuador is worthy. Artisans are that we work with the conservation efforts that we're supporting our in both Peru and Ecuador. It's all in the Amazon region right now. So how easy is it to keep this goal win? As an organization is a trust, our regarding the political situation I'm thinking about Brazil and older corruption scandals. In the fact that the you know. The president gave literally the green light for logging deforestation, this agricultural exhibits burning off the land for agriculture beef production on so. In a meat exports. What other challenges in where your organization is raising while, yet it's a real issue, definitely a little bit more of a higher level station that I think that organizations like rainforests dress probably have a little bit more visibility into the specifics of it I imagine in countries like Brazil. There's definitely always going to be you know some more challenges I mean. There's challenges everywhere in Ecuador. They have a lot of stuff. Going on in their political landscape is well. The whole thing is about money, and that's what it comes down to, and there's still a lot of work to be done in that realm of creating additional protections, putting protections in place for the indigenous communities themselves, but also for these lands, but the one thing I will say is the system that they've created through rainforest trust to be able to have these plots of land purchase in protected that they're paying for these large. You know lots. It's not like you just by in Acre. Another acre by Acre to get another. They have these large multi million acre plots of land that are being I guess technically auctioned off so i. don't know the full specifics of whether or not. The systems are being put in place that are given full legal protection from a lot of the illegal stuff that's happening, but I do know that they do have it worked out in a way where they're working locally any of the areas that they're working on with these campaigns. They're working with many of the local on the ground grassroots. That are directly connected with the people in the government in those areas, so there are systems in place to have as streamlined process possible to have these areas protected in the best way possible but again. At the end of the day we never really now with what's really happening at the top of the chain, and with all the issues around money, especially people without opportunities. There's always gonNA. Be Concern with. How do we make sure that once these this land is purchased in protected that it's truly it's protected in perpetuity so part of that I. Think is also in the model that rainforest trust has which involves educating and employing in. In staffing a lot of the local communities in ways in which they can continue to support conservation again. It's really making sure there's like a maintenance system. Set up there so that it's not just left alone. If somebody did come in and try to do illegal logging in those areas that there would be somebody there to help mitigate it. Yes, so typically about collaboration on all levels, the governance local governance. This trust the people. Tell me more about how it works, so people are mostly occupied with making this bracelets. How much do they lost? The bracelets are twenty four dollars. We actually just got done doing a crowdfunding campaign for them. As a matter of fact, there's a host crowdfunding pre-sale sale. Hey Dj that still upright now until I don't know, we may run for another couple of weeks. We were running a crowdfunding campaign overselling the bracelets for twenty dollars, so they're still available for that once the dust settles from the crowd funding campaign. This is really more to raise all of the funds for this. And then once we move it over into our just are online store retail store. The are normal retail cost will be twenty four dollars. So this bracelets a made on onslaught in Ecuador were. And then someone is she condemn across the globe? Yes, so the bracelets are handmade in the thing about the bracelet. I wanted to make sure that it wasn't just another thing. You know there's a lot of companies it anywhere. You look online now. Everybody's got some kind of social. Give back model, and it's become so ingrained into our culture. It is a lot of people that use greenwashing in a way to just say well. We're just going to either say we're going to give to this cause or give to this cause, but the thing that we're doing in itself is a little detrimental, so you'll see that a lot of times where there's companies that are doing just like some may be made in China plastic. John Visit is ultimately just gonNA end up in a landfill, and so you have to really kinda consider with projects like this. Is this taking the entire life cycle of the business into consideration? So that was a big thing that it was really on my mind when I was creating this, which is why the bracelet we've created with the indigenous communities is made entirely of organic materials that are sustainably sourced from the Amazon. So the bracelet itself is actually biodegradable. It's only made from two materials. One is called tug Wa, which is a nut that grows on the palm trees in Ecuador, and the other is called Tom Bureau with is it's a leaf that just comes off palm trees in. They'll take these little fibers off the. Role in their hands and it suds completely natural die all kinds of different colors, so it's amazingly. Both the and the bureau can be made into literally any color under the sun all from natural vegetable dyes. The entire bracelet is completely organic. It's a great -able. The artisans will make you know everything by hand there than have everything shipped to me here in the states in the of shipping everything out from here I'm still somewhat in the beginning stages of learning the challenges of International, because we actually have a lot of support from our crowdfunding campaign. A big majority of the people that have come in to support the campaign have been from overseas. We've had like France. UK Ukraine Netherlands Australia I mean there's people from all over the world that are really supported, which is really amazing to me, but it's also making me realize like. I'm. GonNa have to get a pretty good. Grip on understanding what the shipping restraints, or or whatever might be I guess I'll find out soon enough because there's always the issue of additional customs and VAT taxes and stuff like that, but in the meantime I'm just moving everything. ORDEN excited that it's really kind of become global, a global movement and global initiative somewhat overnight over the asthma, which is really exciting. I guess why the queue when people donate the transparency, people want to be sure that their money's used to appropriate 'cause. Have you had any one? I Dunno asking you about. Can you show me pictures. Can you walk me through what you're doing? Oh, yeah, as a matter of fact I, literally just responding to somebody recently is I I'm berry transparent throughout the crowd funding campaign on sharing updates news in making sure people see that we are directly connected with organizations that were contributing to as vetted, verified or sponsors partners on their website is well I understand. There's a lot of people that get burned. Burned online from people that don't have integrity. An integrity is the number one core value a house for this project I. Would you know do things the way that has integrity over the easy way any day?.

"But also the the time where they're most mosquitoes. We've been Lucky Barrett for malaria, is she? Anyway so it wasn't mind blowing experience when I realized people lead everywhere. Why would you leave so far away from the closest? Because Ceti whatever can happen to you? You need a dentist. broke leg. Why are you so far away? Why don't you wait until the somewhere? where it's more convenient at the same time. I think I understood why we someone. This natural. Probably a little, a little bit romantic component to it where you just get hooked. where. Did you start with the rain? When was your first trip well? The first rainforest I went to was actually Costa Rica a long time ago. This was before I think any like direct connection I had to the project itself. But the first time I went down to the Amazon was in Peru. Somewhat more for just like a recreational trip, but I was also already starting the process of wanting to learn more about some opportunities that in ways in which I could help with this project that had already started to happen, so that was the first. It was really though it was my trip to Ecuador. Went down to Ecuador not had an opportunity to go. Stay in a couple of villages of some of the indigenous communities out was the spark like that was really the catalyst for creating this opportunity creating this initiative with Alma one million acres to create a project that could help. It was at that point where I learned that the lack of economic activities or these indigenous communities is actually one of the biggest things that driving deforestation. You wouldn't think like it back. Directly would be responsible, but the fact that there's just not a lot of economic opportunities leads a lot of these indigenous communities, often time to have to find other ways to support themselves, and you wouldn't think of indigenous communities is people that would participate in logging or even working with the oil companies, but unfortunately a lot of times. That's that's what happens. You just reminded me our point of departure to the depths of the Amazon was the city of Manaus. A might be mistaken, so we have to double check, but it seems to meet for the capital of the state of Amazon list in Brazil. And what's you know drew my attention. was that in the city of analysis which is very industrial, and you see kind of headquarters of Siemens. Who Away Phillips some big names and we as our guide? Why is it the case why not Sao Paulo? I not ready your dishes. He said to keep people busy to distract them. From deforestation's to to pull them towards this prices to to give them job to give them work and yeah, that was surprising to note. A big corporations decided to stay there. It's a little bit hard to travel because it's not A. Transportation not but yeah, that was the case in so Ben. You decided to do something about rainforests and protects nonetheless end. How exactly while so you know like I? Said I was already personally involved in supporting some organizations that were doing this work. So the what the main organization that we support through Omaha is called rainforest trust, and they are one of the highest ranked charities on charity navigator, which is a third party company bit that rates various different charities. Charities based on their transparency and their effectiveness efficiency with their fine, so it's a really great way to see who it is that your you know donating your money to. If you want to support organizations like this, and they've been doing this for twenty five years in, they have a very specific system where they go in purchase, these big lots of land and they put it into a trust it's. Owned by the locals in the bay use additional resources to create jobs in education systems for the locals so that they know how to protect it. It's not just buying the land. Then walk away, and then maybe it's just. GonNa be destroyed. So I was already donating to them in what I saw was that for a very little amount of money every month by donating I was able to help fund the protection of quite a bit of land, and there was a moment where I realized that the opportunity here for this business could not only be like buy a product and will donate a portion to the rainforests stress in you can help protect this many acres of rainforest or this much land, but the real opportunity was. Create Economic Opportunities for the indigenous communities find a way to give them work. Create something through that product could be sold, and then a portion of the proceeds could be donated rainforest stress it almost kind of creates a compound effect where by creating the economic opportunities in the jobs for the indigenous communities were already building a system to promote conservation into combat deforestation to stop a lot of the people that would normally go into these other areas that are that are causing deforestation. Ban, on top of that, we also take a portion of those proceeds support rainforest stress. We have another organization that we support now on one tree planted so it also refunding the planting of a tree, so have this comprehensive approach now so it's a bracelet that we've created with the indigenous artisan communities, so every has a three tiered impact approach so the each race that is creating new sustainable job for the artisan and a portion of the proceeds from goes for its protecting one acre of rain forest. Resource Dress in additional portion does the planting of a tree in the same area so now it's Kinda like this really..

"To save the world. I'm thrilled excited and honored to have Danny with us to date can't wait to start our interview, but before we do start. You can use this moment to subscribe to the podcast to always be up to date, and maybe even the one step ahead been anyone else was the sustainability news. End Innovations across countries and industries. Alright. Let's dive writing into our episode. Hi Daddy thanks for joining me today at sustainability explored weekly show today. We're GonNa talk about your initiative. Old One million actress so Danny. Blue is my guest today. He owner and founder was amazing initiative or social enterprises. You mentioned it in one of our emails. With a mission of protecting one million actress of endangered rainforest while also empowering indigenous people. Of First of all. How far are you in this gold out of one million accurate? Where you now. Well first off. Thanks for having me I really appreciate it. It's really great to connect with other people who are inspired and care about topics like this so so much. I definitely have a much better understanding. How big of a number one million is now? Because I think we really just starting out a lead so far been able to help fund the protection of about ten thousand acres of rainforest, which is pretty amazing I mean when you think about just the perspective of it, but long way to go out. One million acres is really almost kind of just the first milestone. Anyway, the goal is to really build this movement out into really champion a sustainable way to have a rainforest conservation happening on a regular basis for quite some time. Did You Start Your Sustainability Journey? You're based in California now. What was your I dunno alight. What was your event? That triggered you other good question? I'm not sure if I had a particular Aha moment as far as starting me off in my sustainability journey in particular, I mean like you said I am in California. There's all kinds of things always happening around here with. The green movement and even seeing the state initiating policies around getting rid of plastic bags in then. The different forms of electric transportation starting to pop up here and there. been surrounded by it for quite some time, but I will say that I'm not the typical person that you know came out of the womb with the mission to be in the Green Movement, and has been doing something like this entire life always knew from a kid that I was destined to do something within the environmental movement as a matter of fact. kind of the opposite up until maybe seven years ago, I was living pretty traditional life as far as American standards. Go working this corporate job making really great money living down by the beach in Venice United Really, great. Setup by had money for savings was traveling. It's your biggest those perfect and I just I really wasn't fulfilled. There's something in. It sounds so cliche. You hear so many people have the story, but there was something really deep in me. That made me realize like I can ride this out for as long as I. Want I want you know I'm not even having to work too hard. A lot of my money that make this job was residual. There is something just wasn't fulfilling about it. Dad was probably if there was a catalyst for me going out seeking something else whatever that was, that was probably the spark. That had me kind of leaving on this journey. Are you familiar with the book or it's a study actually written into a book called. DRAW DOWN BY PAUL has. been called the most comprehensive study on an. On climate, change and various different. Ways that we have opportunities to help combat itself. talks about all of the different things that we as humans are participating in that are contributing to a degrading planet climate, utilizing resources faster than we can replenish them, and I think when I came across the. Study in that blood. That was what really I got me interested in a sustainability, I was blown away to learn about certain things like food waste in how food waste is one of the leading contributors to climate change, and not even just amount of food that we scrape off of our plate into the trash. But how much energy it actually takes to raise from the ground, and send it there and send it. Parents ended here processes. Get played. You know so that was I think maybe one of the first things I learned about. That really got me interested in wanting to know more about other things that may contribute to this I was already very passionate about outdoors in nature and contributing as a personal donor to organizations that help protect the rainforest. His love animals large number of endangered animals actually. Call the rainforests home I was constantly connected in that way, but then seeing how deforestation in the forest was also listed in the list of draw down as one of the leading causes of I'm a- change that was probably what started me on the journey of wanting to see what else is there as far as like. How else could I help over on just my own personal view, Sion's right, and why rainforest in particular you could have started with anything locally based, but safe food way tonight. Writer. You leave white rainforests so far away. Far Away. It's there was something that was calling me. Deeper than what would be received is just like a conscious awareness. I. Just I felt this calling It was like a romantic of the rain forests in you know all the documentaries. I watched always be very drawn to the rainforests episodes in just the abundance of life and these ecosystems, and just the sheer amount of diversity that exists in the ecosystems into just watch. It was really the nature documentaries in shows it really old ended. See these other planets almost thriving in this way, whereas literally life, it is just expressing itself in all forms, and so I just was always very drawn to it I. Don't know if I realized at that point. I felt like I was directly connected to. It 'cause yet. The rainforests have a little bit of outta sight. OUTTA mind. For, so our away, people don't make all it's affecting me. But it was again through my pursuit of learning more about that through these different studies through these matters realizing how connected we all really are, and how actually dependent we are on these ecosystems, it may not be in our backyard, but are just as important, if not more so to our survival so true. I've been to Brazil in December last year for Holden's Yes the first episode I released. This year was about. Amazon rainforest, whereas in three days only three days, but it. It completely blew my mind. I I know I saw what we're talking about what we are GonNa talk about. December was just the start of the rainy season, and our local guides told us that. If you come in June July, the water level will rise so much that you will see all this diversity this loss. The Jaguars Everyone Seton just on the top of the crowns of.
Firefighters Knock Down Two Fires In The Elysian Park Area, Los Angeles
"It's like firefighters were able to take care of one acre brush fire that started in a lesion partner. Dodger Stadium down power lines apparently got in the way of fire fighting efforts for a time. And then it was another small brush fire that broke out about a mile away. That one was quickly extinguish. This afternoon on North Point this to drive. Both fires are now out.
Developing long duration energy storage
"What a year it's shaping up to be for. Storage manufacturing has taken a hit and some projects are getting delayed for obvious reasons Our analysts that would mackenzie say that. The coronavirus crisis will trim twenty twenty forecasts for Battery Installations. Globally by almost twenty percent. But they still expect it to be a record year and the projects that caught our eye are not going to get built this year but they do show the strength and resiliency of this market a few examples here. A coal plant in North Dakota is going to be replaced. In part with a one acre battery array that uses a new technology capable of discharging for a hundred and fifty hours. That's more than thirty times longer than a lithium ion batteries. The Electric Utility in Hawaii just awarded contracts for sixteen projects that add up to more than three gigawatt hours of storage and those will replace an oil fired. Coal-fired Power Plant in California Southern California Edison signed contracts for seven hundred seventy megawatts of batteries. Many of them paired with solar projects to replace aging gas plants plus in China more hybrid wind solar and battery plants are starting to emerge and wood. Mackenzie expects rapid growth in batteries within China in the coming years. It's the country will lead Asia. This lead Dan Foley who would McKenzie's head of energy storage to proclaim to our journalist at Green Tech Media The utility energy storage market is blowing through milestones faster than we can report them for example those Sei projects are together worth two hundred megawatts more than the entire twenty nineteen market says Fin Foley. So let's go through these. I think we should focus on the bright shiny objects I. What do we know about this form? Energy Project Catherine mentioned this at the end of a recent show so catherine what is Great River Energy who is form energy and what kind of battery could emerge from. This relationship is a great river. Energy is the largest generation and transmission co-op and what that means is it generates and provides power under long-term contracts to a bunch of member. Co Ops like twenty eight member Co ops and this is how a lot of the COP system is formed in the US where they're small co ops that are often serving rural communities. They are very much about keeping costs low for their customers and customers. Own the CO OPS. They are customer owners but then they sign up for long term agreements with these GMT providers. Because it does save the money in the long run and a lot of these. Gmt providers we've seen have these long term contracts For old coal plants and so great river energy is one of those GM GMT's and they made a decision a while back to shut down coal a coal plant call strip and they have been thinking about. How are we going to backfill it? And what are we going to use to do that? And so they've certainly been deploying a lot of renewables and they just recently entered into this agreement with Form Energy and forum is a start up Led by Matteo Harm. Yo who came out of TUSLA. He was the energy storage guru there yet mingchang. Who's an MIT professor? Who has been really another brains behind storage and Ted Wiley who co-founded Aquaman and energy storage company and there are a couple of other. Mit folks. Billy Woodford and Marco Ferrara and there. It's just a team of incredible minds. Who decided to try to calm at storage by thinking about it it as potentially being able to replace all of these Uncaught non cost effective coal plants and so their technology seeks to be super cheap long-duration Nontoxic something you would find everywhere to be able to you know. Put together a type of a flow battery that could just replace the footprint of any fossil fuel plant so that is their goal. And that's what a great river energy has decided to take a bet on. Let's talk about the tech first and then the rural cooperatives piece second jigger. This is a battery. We don't know much about but they call it an aqueous air battery. What does that mean well? Basically in it uses more abundant materials. Because what you find is as that the metals wondering yeah we'll water but also the metals they're using or quite Easy to find and so it's aluminum zinc magnesium etc right. And so so what you find is that they have this ability to use low-cost materials right and they're able to Store lots of energy so when you think about this ad. Matteo talks about this in his interview The way that Lithium. Ion Batteries work is that you can actually charged quickly and discharged quickly but at the same time basically to charge it as to discharge it. And so what you find. Is that these batteries It's around like sort of being able to constrict the nozzle and only making it one megawatt right because you can imagine that you could make a lithium ion battery that's a hundred megawatts incised but only dispatch one megawatt at a time and then make it last one hundred fifty hours now. The problem with that those. It's a super expensive way to get one hundred fifty hour battery whereas this is a much cheaper way. It's it's similar to sort of Etienne redux batteries and others were the basically have this. The fluid that that holds the charge can be expanded at a very low cost. The fuel cell that converts that fluid into energy that's utilized is the expensive
As Amish Leave Farming For Other Work, Some Leave Their Homestead

Comcast Business Gig fueled network solutions that help businesses go beyond the expected to do the extraordinary Gary comcast business beyond fast learn more at comcast business dot Com Lancaster County Pennsylvania is home to the biggest settlement of Amish the people in the United States now that community is growing fast and some of its members are leaving farms and moving into towns. Some towns have had to change their zoning laws laws so amish people can bring things like horses along with them. Rachel McDevitt of member station W. I t. f. has a story kids.

The price of farmland has risen from about eight thousand dollars an Acre acre a few decades ago to twenty thousand dollars today and fewer and fewer amish farming the majority were outside the home in businesses and construction and so they're moving into towns Strasburg Township Supervisor Michael Weaver is driving a black jeep wrangler on whiny back roads past farms and small clusters of homes spaced well apart. This is a prime example right here. He stops outside one fairly modest beige ranch house with what appears to be a large garage or a small barn. It's a carriage house with room for two horses and a buggy plot of ground butts no more than a half. Acre it used to be needed one acre of land per horse to keep the animal on your property but township zoning board was getting inundated with requests for exceptions from Amish moving onto smaller lots so the supervisors voted to allow up to two horses for the purpose of transportation to be kept on a half Acre Weaver says the rule change was made as a compromise between the Amish and who they call the English or non Amish. I have seen a cultural clash between between the Amish community and the English the religious group nearly doubles in size every two decades and it's starting to feel a little crowded in Lancaster county where Amish are about seven percent of the population to chat lap who has amish changes in township rules aren't enough to help his people continue. Can you their lifestyle. There's just so much more late. The focus is on on okay now. We did half Acre for two horses good for you. It's not gonNA last long.

He's actively scouting neighboring counties for new settlements. Let's and finding people interested in moving. He says it's a matter of identity. He wants to see more of his people moving to protect their faith and culture from the mainstream name. That influence comes back into the period. You can't change that but many are tied to the land. A local amish man says though he's had family members move. He's never considered leaving. We're not naming him because most amish don't allow recordings of themselves or religious reasons. This man fears backlash clash from his community if they knew he had allowed it as he sits at the end of his driveway his big white farmhouse just out of view. He says his ancestors have been in the county thiessen eighteen hundred he started this farm in nineteen seventy five richer here. Our ancestors are buried here. We feel attached this.

Could Maggots End World Hunger?
"Are that you like me have spent the better part of your sentient life assuming that maggots are gross and a lot of them are due to their intolerable habit of eating rotting flesh and feces but have you considered that maggots might be what saves saves you all of us in the end. Not maggots are created equal of course no one. That's going to save you is not the flesh-eating screw were Maggot of the Florida keys. He's not the larva that Invest Sardinia's infamous end legal delicacy Casa Mars Zoo or mega cheese. There's only one maggot currently known to science that that could possibly save humanity and that's the larva of the black soldier fly and they're still kinda gross thousands of them will feast on a single food source at once creating reading a writhing living fountain of Maggots but sometimes you just have to set aside discussed in the interest of survival. It's arriving Living Fountain of Beneficent Earth Saving Leaving Maggots Common in much of the Western Hemisphere and Australia. You may not have remembered noticing a black soldier fly before the adults are about one inch long around two and a half centimeters and can be mistaken for wasps. Only they're extremely slow and lack a stinger they often issue flight and spend their fourteen days or so of adulthood Mosey around on the ground but what black soldier flies look like as adults hardly matters as they spend very little time in their grown up bodies in fact thus have no mouth parts or digestive organs because once they become flies it's sort of a hit it and quit situation they can meet within a couple of days of hatching and they don't live if more than a week or two after that so it's the larva that have sustainability researchers salivating literally if their plans come to fruition we will all be eating black soldier fly larva which are referred to as BS. NFL in the Biz this is because BS NFL contain about forty three percent protein in addition to who some calcium and amino acids which is astronomical compared to every other plant and animal based food on the planet and they taste like peanuts or Fritos depending on who you ask according to a two thousand thirteen United Nations report insects already made up parts of the diets around two billion people worldwide and as Earth's human population grows meat like beef and chicken will be a protein option for fewer and fewer people it only takes one acre of BS NFL to grow the same amount of protein S. three thousand acres of cattle or one hundred thirty acres of soybeans. The larger themselves can be dried and turned into flour pressed for their oils or roasted and sprinkled over over a salad for a little extra crunch. The Sky's the limit with these little buddies not only that BS F l make great trash processors. They're capable of eating a wide variety of organic waste nearly anything you can throw at them from food scraps and rotting carcasses to poop and toxic algae although they reportedly had a difficult time managing in hair bones and pineapple rhines so farming with them would leave us with a smaller carbon footprint and a whole lot of compost a group of researchers at Texas am and has even figured out how to put. Bs fell to sleep for long periods of time and then wake them up when it's time to put them to work eating waste a few different companies. These are currently trying to make this BS F.

Let's get back to the scapegoat so basically the the priest will take a day off from diddle and kids and he lay his hands on a farm animal and one would think he would grab the horns and then start fornicated but this that's another story what they would do with with the goat is he'd lay hands on it and he would basically somehow i guess after everybody confessed to this douchebag he would then place all of the sins on the goat and then they would just banish the goat and send it outta town with all the sins and everybody souls. We're going to be clean again but this is the funny anything as the goat left people would line up on either side of the street and they would they would heckle the goat in jere atom you fucking walk in adulterous paces shit yeah. Why don't you check off again. You can't just yelling about the sense that they did. I don't know what it was yeah. It keeps stealing from the pot at work. Itself is yelling at a farm.

An a welcome to brainstorm production of iheartradio Hey rain stuff Lauren Vogel bomb here eleven point eight percent of American households. That's about forty million people experienced food insecurity which is the lack of financial resources to buy sufficient food at least some of the time in two thousand seventeen according to the United States Department of Agriculture one way of fighting. This could be community food forests food forests are far cry from community gardens as they're not rows and rows of standard plant beds instead they're designed to mimic natural forests using food bearing trees roots Greens vines and other the plants while making the most of the space available as a result food forests are picturesque and calming gathering areas for community members looking to enjoy a piece of nature while picking whatever produce they need for free. We spoke with Giuseppe Tele Rico an agronomist. Specializing in permaculture food security and environmental management systems who is also the founder and manager of the world permaculture association. He said the concept behind food forests is that natural forests are highly productive in their own right and totally self-sustainable renewable over extremely long timeframes so by following the functional patterns that exist in the natural forest and adapting them to the conditions of light and space that each species need in order to be productive. We can create very low maintenance production zones that are essentially harvest systems by mimicking natural patterns in nature as much as possible. The hope is that every species needs humans animals and plants will be met in a sustainable way. Although there's some wiggle room for layout based on the local environment a typical food enforced is designed with the canopy of large nut and fruit trees followed by a lower tree layer of dwarf fruit trees nixed is a shrub layer composed of shrubs that produce berries followed by a layer of herbs and then by root crops such as potatoes and carrots the soil surface is planted with ground cover specific crops and finally layer vertical climbers vines like grapes or Kiwis is incorporated. Most of these spaces aren't even all that huge in fact when it opens Atlanta's urban food forest Brown's. Sounds mill will be the city's first in the largest in the U._S.. At seven point one acres that's about two point eight hector's even better food forests are often planned to make use of previously wasted space the Dr George Washington Carver at will park in Asheville North Carolina Carolina took over an area once occupied by a trash heap and the Glendale Community Garden in West Akron Ohio was created a vacant lot and all too common eyesore in cities across the country. It's not unusual for community churches schools and governments to who established food forests of whatever size they can manage with the help of civic organizations in volunteers but one food forest in a given city isn't going to totally eradicate the issue of hunger of course Atlanta urban food forest is one prong of a citywide effort to make healthy food accessible possible to eighty five percent of city residents by the year two thousand twenty two. We spoke by email with Mike Accord a forest ranger with trees Atlanta. He said the area is a U._S._D._A.. Classified Food Desert so benefiting the immediate neighborhood is the primary goal a group of neighbors manages the Community Garden and herb area while trees Atlanta and other partners manage the orchard and forced at sections of the land although food forces are free and open to the public they may ask visitors to only harvest food when forced managers are. Are Present to prevent people from accidentally damaging the plants or taking produce. That isn't ready yet. The movement is now gaining steam but food forced took awhile to get off the ground. The ASHVILLE food force was the first of its kind in the modern United States although Tele Rico. I'm not that human agroecology systems have been used for ages many communities such as those in Java Bali New Guinea and parts of central and South America a couple more popped up here and there after ashes launch nineteen ninety-seven but it wasn't until after Seattle's Beacon Hill food forest forest garnered much publicity in two thousand twelve these projects really started to gain traction as of two thousand eighteen there are more than seventy food forests established across the United States and thousands more around the world.

You look to the right. And there's. Describe it. It's kind of like a warehousing looking building. It's got red read like steel diagonal pillars and kind of look through it at a certain point. I think that's the building. They're talking about is it, right? Kind of like across from old town. Yeah. Townie kind of like to the west of the fog closer to the higher on the side of the highway that's closer to the airport. Okay. So I don't know how I just read the headline here, but assuming wanted anymore, whatever that'd be interesting. I'm down with. I'm very open to any proposal. That would connect the stink stinking airport to public transportation, trolley or whatever. How do we not have that? That's insane. Yeah. Because if you think about it there's only one way into the airport right now. Right. You gotta go from like coming from downtown to the airport. And so you're suggesting they're going to open up the other side. So where you could come from like the north that way. So it'd be like a trolley connection. Right. Yeah. And it would come from the north come from the net would come from the north. No, it can come from the south. Charlie come up, doesn't it? Try to come up south. Both directions. Why could've come from him. No, no, no. I'm just saying that that's kind of it would open up that side of the airport. Whereas now, it's only you can only come north to the airport when that trolley bring traffic south to Monday, we both need to be looking at a map. I'm confused. What you're saying?

Raise where to move to ebor city what's the latest on that So there was a procedural move last week I think city council that restructures how much and how money is. Collected into what's called a tax, incremental fund within the in town redevelopment area and that's a lot of jargonese stuff that I'm going to explain. Basically you have a geographic boundary. That constitutes a community redevelopment area cooperative taxes are capped at the. Level at which that geographic boundary is created and any property taxes. Above that cap as as property values go, up goes into the tax in for. Mental fund and that money is used within that geographic boundary for redevelopment projects so that's the type. Of money there would be years to redevelop eighty, one acre Tropicana field sites Well The commissioners have wanted to stop funding that particular area for a while saying that it's no longer a community in need of. Redevelopment and quite, frankly they have a point if you look at the edge district which is encompassed in that, area it's booming. On so this was basically a compromise to save up and all county. Commission we want to continue funding mess because we need to have a revenue source for this giant redevelopment. Projects so rather than ending it in a few, years which is what they were going to, do they're going to extend beyond twenty thirty the amount of time that they're collecting money into the fund, on but they're gonna contribute. Less so starting next year they'll put in the city will put ninety percent of the amount of property tax eligible for that. Fund and then the county will put in seventy five, percent and then it'll drop even lower than that after a couple of years to just. Half. Okay so it'll save the city about two. Million Dollars in the injustice year one more than that going forward but it adds about one hundred seventy five million dollars. Long term that will be available for redevelopment projects within that district simultaneously you also have a new process going on on to come. Up with a, master plan for the site that does not include a baseball stadium what are they hoping to, do in that. Area do they have I'm sure they have a bunch of different ideas. As to what they would like to put their Tropicana field's no longer being used well there's already a. Master plan that includes on what the space would, look like with a baseball stadium and like, I said they're in the process of creating another one that the plan without a stadium I think you'll, find that the features are. Going to be similar and both plans on you'll just have extra space where stadium would have been some of those features are. Going to be things like you're probably going to have, some sort of convention space right on the Booker creek area is going to be reactivated. And. Turned into some sort of Green Park space On where people can gather there's always a desire to activate any. Type of on water, resources within cities they become very natural gathering point for locals and visitors alike you're gonna see hotels massive amounts of retail restaurants entertainment.
