Most people driving cars. Maybe that will fix everything. Look i think like remote work should change how we think about the economics of big crowded cities because america has lots of space. There are plenty of places. You go where. You're not going to have a traffic jam. Problem their schools. Look i mean if the population grows you've got to build more schools but it's not hard to build a schoolhouse built rights end. I think that some of this is about. I reject some of the pessimism and like can't do spirit that i think dominates a lot of this right. We say well. We can't match china's population because to do that we need a new high school. Come off like just build a new high school. That's not that hard right. It's it's such a cliche to do the like we went to the moon but we did go to.

"He didn't get any co sponsors for his trouble. So that makes it hard to win. Nobody i think that this is part of the issue. Is that like i'm a. I'm a liberal person. So i kind of wrote down sort of mostly progressive versions of these ideas but wayne conservatives want to engage on a topic and say okay. What's a conservative way of making it more affordable to have kids like. I'm sure you guys can come up with something right. It's if we completely ignore the subject or just say like bad like that's what we don't get anywhere so i learned about. After the book came out is that we have mandated car seats for older and older children and went. Why were does the cost benefit analysis on that they find very very very small benefits but they also say that the costs are really low. Because it's like you're already have the car see you. Just keep your kid in it and what. The researchers pointed out that you think about going from two children to three children keeping the oldest kid in the car seat is actually very expensive. And not just because you can't reuse the seat but because he can't fit three car seats in the back seat of a normal you gotta get a new car so you gotta get a whole new bigger car right. And they calculate there's actually a thousands of children not born every year they attribute to the cost of these older carseat mandates. But i really think people think about their child. You're married you got a kid like oh this regulation means. We can't have a baby bright but the cost of the overall stress that goes into the calculus of like the stress. I'm exhausted with this. I can't do it right or housing for him. Well or will we can't do. I mean 'cause having children's it's biological processes so you feel okay. Well i need to be making a certain amount of money before we can do this right. And so we all kind of factors up you might think. Oh we'll we'll have a third kid but it turns out it's too late for you right or the costs. Turn out to be more than you expected because you about childcare but you kind of forget about summer camp right like this is like a million things happening right and if we don't address that stuff you treat it as a purely free market thing right. Total libertarianism say. Capitalism says we should have fewer children but we should be happy with it because we have net flicks spotify like look how much better your entertainment options were than your grandparents but like a normal person either. A progressive person or conservative person says. Wait a minute like no. We can't just trade off like do we have families with do we have streaming movies right. There's a value in these things that like. The market does not value parenting and raising children. So we need to do something to make possible. I do feel like it's run. Adrift like we are not having the society and the free market mechanisms push us towards the things that we say that we value were asked by a pollster. You mentioned conservative solutions. And i think the thing that i keep coming back to is like housing. That's my main thing. That stresses me out. When i think about where i wanna move how many kids we might like to have. It's just like it just can't do it and then also you can't find the house. Depending on where the jobs are going to be where the prosperity..

It's not like somehow every single person whose ancestors come from latin. America is like a super. Left-wing democrat is actually just the opposite. And i wish conservatives had a little more confidence sometimes in their own ideas. We can pitch this to people. And i hope it's a good outcome of the twenty twenty election that trump invest in rio grande valley and he found a lot of new voters there right and that we can then talk in a sort of rational way.

Gotta do the work. But it's very possible. Did you see tucker carlson's bit about the nation being overcrowded and that overcrowded nations are ugly and unhappy. What did you make of that comment. And why is it wrong. Because i know you don't agree with that but like this. This seems to be what everybody believes like. You just talked to people out on the street. They're like yeah. There's too many there's not enough. There's not enough room here. You've talked to somebody in the middle of north carolina like in greensboro about the middle of the state. And they're just be like you. I don't want more people here. That's the bias. We just had this negatively biased. Some people do right and one thing i do want to say. Why is that. America's really big. It's a really big quite empty and tucker carlson's personal life trajectory in which he is now spending more time in rural maine. Like that's great guy. No i mean originally right but it's actually separate from his politics and his personal life. It's like a very sensible move right like you can. If you want to live in a sparsely populated portion of the united states of america. We have a lot of great options for you. I love me too. So tucker and i have in common growth. It's interesting to me. My wife is from texas. So since i met her i started spending more time in the san antonio area and texas had this incredible population growth a lot of domestic migration. Some of its international. And it's interesting to me. How proud texas elected officials are of that. Rick perry brags about it. Greg abbott brags about it. Then the democratic mayors in san antonio and dallas fort worth. They all brag about it. It's very different from the east coast mentality. we have a lot of sort of like left wing hipsters. Who are like. Aw it's terrible. New people are in the city and then you have kind of like crank he rural conservatives all my guide human beings spoke spanish. So it's like did possible separate from partisan frames to just like have a different attitude to the fact that people want like it's dynamic. It's interesting that new things are being built. It creates a lot of opportunities for people. I agree like you don't want us to become the most overcrowded country on earth. We're so far from that right. We are at one. Sixth of the population density of germany about a tenth the population of the united kingdom and those like nice clean countries. It's fine switzerland. Which is like the canonical clean.

Rhetoric has gone to crazy town in case you haven't noticed or at least to the realm of the politically unpopular. They've let their message drift toward decriminalizing border crossings. Having defacto open borders and sang that you are bad person if that makes you slightly uncomfortable. The book is optimistic about climate. It rejects the doom prophecies that we're all going to be underwater in ten years and iglesias argues instead that having kids as great expanding the size of our population will make us better off more energetic happier now.

"This is where we get to this number that it's almost hard to wrap your head around but that that a billion animals malls have been lost in these. Most recent fires in Australia. Is that number accurate It's a ballpark number. But it's based on estimates of the density of mammals birds and reptiles in those environments. So it's in the right kind of area in terms of scale of impact. Because there's no food I mean if you've seen pictures of these landscapes they are just nuked. There's nothing left. So even if individual animals escaped the fire escape being burnt directly directly. They're likely to die in the coming weeks and months who's GonNa die. What kind of animals are dying here? I mean species that people are are seeing our guests S. on the major would probably must be qualities maybe possums maybe kangaroos. But there's lots of other animals living in this forest right down to very small marsupials so to give you an example. There's a little carnivorous marsupial called to kangaroo. Island Dunnett kind of the size of a mouse it lives on an island. Coal whole kangaroo island now this dot its entire global distribution is restricted to the national park on that island and its entire habitats. Abbott's gone up in flames. I mean there's many many more things like civil tailed anticommunist. That's again another small marsupial carnivore. The war things like the long footed Peru that's kind of a mini kangaroo that lives in the forests of east skips. London Victoria very large. Proportion of its habitats habitats. Gone up in flames is also birds like the Kangaroo Island Glossy Black Cockatoo. People often think that birds escaped far is because they can fly alive but the smoke and the hate in the lack of visibility creates a lot of confusion guests and so it's not unusual to come across big mobs of bird corpses corpses. After the event not far from where the fire occurred and a large proportion of Australia's animals are endemic. So that means they're found in Australia and nowhere else in the world so you know if the populations here experienced declines and in some cases populations and species are going to be brought to the brink extinction by this event then those declines basically global decline to the not just relevant to Stralia relevant to the whole world. And I I mean just thinking about the loss or potential loss of a billion animals. When was the last time something like that happened on this planet? Well Gosh I don't know I mean the other big far events that have happened in the last ten years in California in Siberia have been monstrous much smaller in scale actually than this far event in Australia so in in terms of this immediate impact packed on animal lives. Don't know what you would compare it to but as shocking as that statistic as probably the bigger longer lasting impact is going to be what it does to Species declines and the ability of species to hang on. So it's extinctions that were actually more worried about correct me if I'm wrong but it sounds like you cannot think of an event like this in our history in our recorded history is that what were you were saying. We'll I can't maybe others can. But and the scary thing about this is it. This event occurred was an average of one degrees of warming globally. And unless we get serious about climate change. We're looking at three to four degrees of warming. I can't even imagine what Australia is going to look like with three to four degrees. We're warming if this is what happens with one degree of warming. It's it's terrifying future. Yeah I mean as someone who's spent her her life studying these species and spending time in their habitat. Can I ask you how it's been these past few months watching these his Co. systems burn. Yeah you're right. I've spent my lifetime working in conservation and feels like all of those efforts where he just inching forward good all the time. You're trying to make a positive difference. Just got wiped out in the space few weeks so that's thoroughly depressing and I guess the anger comes from. We all knew this was going to happen. It's not exactly a surprise and scientists have been warning governments of the the impacts of not addressing climate change. which is the ultimate driver here for a long time and policy and action particularly in our country in the Stralia area is incredibly frustrating? And it's hard not to be angry about it. Do you feel as an ecologist like partly responsible for speaking for these animals animals. Look I guess I feel responsible for trying to assemble all the evidence that we can about. What's getting impacted? And how and what can be done about it. That I guess ultimately I think the broader society makes decisions about what you do with that information and after this experience what you think is is the most pertinent piece of information that you want out there in the world that I guess we're not the only species living on this planet. We do have a responsibility not to wreck the place because of our Myopia and I really hope that this event will Golvin is a change in attitude across the world. Just take more responsibility for what we're doing on the planet. Take care of it.

"Hair has been covering Australia's unprecedented fire season and for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. They're ABC something like fifteen million acres have burned thus far. That's roughly the size of West. Virginia I guess if you look at New South Wales at the moment the burnt-out areas. It's it's hard to find on the coastal area that hasn't been burnt out so on the method aurthorities put out to talk about where these five burning and where the fronts are areas. That have already been done. That are in black and the the whole map of New South Wales for example example is just covered in black massive massive areas of land and the other thing about these fires is. They're so big and so large and burning so intensely that you you can actually put them out. The best authorities can do is sort of build containment lines around it and hope for favorable wind pushes the fire back onto itself. which that you put it out because there's nothing left to burn? How many people have died at this point in New South Wales? It's more than twenty. I believe the total number nationally is is pushing thirty but damage. Assessment cruise is still going through areas and finding bodies they're finding burnt out properties and things like that so it talks to just how how quickly these fires of move through areas and people just didn't have a chance to get out and we're finding a lot of those people that have died have dot on the roads have died in that causes. They've tried deflate. Some of these areas being impacted So in addition to this being the hottest year on record in Australia. What's made these fires? So unstoppable one of the biggest problems that authorities have talked about is the fact that this trial has been in a drought for a while. Now a so all of the fuel loads which is what they call them. which is basically lease trays and branches? That have fallen from the trays onto the ground are incredibly dry. I and all it takes is a little spark. Just take off into a massive fire so it just means. These fires can take off and rice off quite quickly. Firefighters of talked about this year saying the heavier they've never seen before for example these fires burning through areas that are considered rainforest even though as a dry at the moment. So they're Baynton Terry as we speak. There's a lot of things people don't expect about. Five thousand one thing I will say is incredibly scary there. These huge five France. which is we're up in? The wind moves so quickly. Catch people unawares that some of the unexpected things. I think we've seen from this. Bushfire season has one has been the smoke which is just blanketed huge areas including Sydney for example choking. The air people without allergies have really struggled with that as well like people with asthma have really struggled with that and I think people really expected that to hang around for so long another thing. I don't think they expected was the impact this will have on things like tourism tourism paypal is saying these images coming out of Australia and going well led DUnno if I want to visit the era. Now what's the political response. been well the political response has interesting. The Prime Minister Scott Morrison has been getting slammed essentially by a lot of papal about his response to bushfire crosses just two weeks ago Morrison apologized for being on vacation in Hawaii with his family while his country burn obviously returned from leave and that has caused some great anxiety in stride tried and ginny and I acknowledge that and then he's since come home and he's received quite a frosty reception from the locals in these areas that have been affected did by Bushfire Sandals Mister Prime Minister. Now you may idiot night over you really get any anybody. Why is not welcome? We've seen images of fires refusing to shake his hand now a he has been somewhat on the backfoot. He announced that the military would going into these areas to help. He's announced a two billion dollar disaster relief fund to try and help these bushfire affected areas. so He's been doing a lot of press conferences in media since to try and look like he's been doing something well. I'm not surprised people of feeling very war with the mind and that's why I kind tonight to to be here to save if a muscle to offer what could and there's still some very dynasty is a hit and we understand that and that's why we're GonNa do everything we can to ensure that I had every every support by bed. Then there's also been this separate argument around people wanting more action on climate change there's been huge protests in the straits rates in recent days thousands and thousands of people turning out in the capital cities to demand more action on climate change. I'm concerned about the call. And the MOGHAL. How how did the people in this powder? Pointing to a government commission which twelve years ago warned if the Stralia and government didn't do something to radically radically reduce its greenhouse gas emissions that the country would experienced catastrophic fires many now believe that is a prophecy. That has come through Komo all you absolutely sure that this is climate change course yes absolutely certain. The science is telling us these it's telling us is that these extreme heat conditions have seen initiate might occur naturally once every three hundred and fifty years but once you add the influence of the human emitted greenhouse house gases. We're likely to see those conditions. Once every eight years and of course that number will decline it will become more frequent as the build up of guesses continues given the efforts that other nations making reduce carbon emissions. How can you justify opening new coal? Mines is we got the best modeling adding industry in the world to do his job properly. Strategy is doing its beat it is not going to write a blank check with its economy. The government says that they're meeting their current targets. And they're doing enough. Do you feel like there's still a question as to whether these fires fires are connected to climate change in Australia or do you feel like everyone's pretty much on the same page. I'm the issue of climate. Change in Australia is still continues. He needs to be incredibly polarizing. There are people saying that there is nothing else this could be and then there are people on the other side saying Australia's always had bushfire seasons reasons and this is just a particularly bad bushfire season. I the tabloid conspiracy. That's taken off like wildfire that it's all the work of arsonists even activists arsonists the problem with that. There's always been assen in Australia. They've never been fired like these and I guess an unprecedented bushfire season hasn't hasn't really changed and political discussion around at all. Just thinking about the scale of this fifty million acres thousands of homes dozens dead I mean. Is that surprising to you. That hasn't changed the political discussion. Not Really I guess because it always has been like this but I guess it it has been interesting saying the response by the international community. Obviously the size of these bourgeois as has been front-page news for a few weeks now and a few other countries around the world have been sort of a guest surprise that it is a topic that is still polarizing and in the meantime Its peak summer in Australia and these fires are still not over the. It's we're still in the middle of summer here. We still still have many months of dry hot weather. And what they really need. Here is a lot of Ryan and I needed to be quite heavy and instead areas and unfortunately family there's none of that predicted on the horizon in the short term at least so these bushfires could continue on for many months now before we see any kind of reprieve. We can't pretend this is something we've experienced before it's not because the weather activity we're saying saying the extent and spread of the ause speed at which they're going the way in which they're attacking communities who've never ever seen far before is unprecedented. Thousands of people remains stranded on beaches figuring. The water may be their only escape here in New South Wales more than fifty five still out of control and Fi- dangerous dangerous got up to severe and extreme. Today I kind of rising.

And it feels good this natural would that. It's made of this one is made out of walnut. They they use a variety of different styles of wood. But it's all sourced locally or with organizations that go out of their way to reclaim felled trees in the forests and then and. You know, dry them out and send them to places. So they're, you know, they're not just cutting down trees to make these these cases in charging pads. They're actually using the environment as it exists.

And that if you are not white you might have a problem being matched with somebody else. Because the it was fly these systems were trained on white faces a not enough non faces.

And that has never go to work right now. He actually the the the so much funny things it was it was a demonstration of the new next level autonomous modes, basically as an investor sort of pitch and part of it was saying, I think renting you're talking about that person who's talked asking about how poorly people see them. I've got a tesla. And they know that the self-driving technology is very isn't very aggressive. So they'll cut in front of me knowing that the self-driving software and asking can we make the software more aggressive. And I think he was talking about how. Well, yeah. We're we're looking at new like new driving modes, including like a mode that says basically go ahead risk. Fender bender. If you have to add like what and thinking. Okay. So well, the system say only hit cars that seem to be worth a lot less than the tesla or make sure that take look for her. His older then. Do it to a license plate checks? You see how good their that their insurances, and how much money they made last year if they're worth suing then ram, I feel bad because I- Tesla's only two and a half years old.

What do you think? Should I get a model three with his new technology, or should I I know there's somebody who is you. You have to be our test subject. Okay. Well, Oh, you you talked talk me. me. I'll see all also I'm really encouraging people to invest in this technology because already I've people who like Dr manual transmissions that Lord over me that I don't know how to drive stick. I like to be able to Lord over people who again don't know how to merge into a highway without having software takeover. I I I can parallel park, man. And this word me a lot that there's three different autonomy modes, including an aggressive atonomy mode. If you don't mind the occasional Fender bender. Yeah. What? That doesn't seem like a good. Switch to have. Yeah. I don't. I would rather be able to say that. I I traded pate willfully and I- ministered some some street Justice. I don't want my car deciding for me that let's say there's a there's a there's a there's a I see a couple of different infants seats in the backseat. Yeah. Let's just you know, go for it. Them to go. Anyway. Switching your insurance rates. Go up. What are the consequences of that? When do they test that car and say, oh, you had aggressive mode on? So therefore, you're partially at fault from this something like what? Yeah. That's an interesting point apple got FCC approval yesterday for the power beats pro. Now, you're decision. Do I get air pods or power beats pro these use the H one chip the same one in the air pods? The I like the form factor a little better. They've got over the year loop. Does this sound better? I don't know Founded saying. saying. Right. The they got the beats. They got the beats. Yes, we have to wait on that though. Because I I I think that they're, you know, we need to make sure that presumably power beats pro are going to have the same quality an and sort of bass heavy sound as the other power beats or the beats S or something like that. But you know, maybe they're gonna adjust that maybe it's not gonna be. So I I think think we just. we just one hundred bucks more. I think seen at tried them and said they were they sounded better than the pods. But did have that classic beats on like the heavy bass big deal for some people. It's really important when you're making that decision that you understand head of time. What it means to have a base heavy. They're also sweat proof.

They're so so the world is the in in the licensing sense the world is kind of split one or the other evolutions that took place was that. The subscription model came to the map store. Right. And so we ended up what we ended up having to do. Here was what we wanted to do was to give our customers a choice because subscriptions, even though in one sense. They've been around for a long time and everybody sort of accepts the notion of paying on an ongoing basis for product or service in some parts of the audience some parts of the market. They're still a very new thing. I don't remember when it was that adobe started charging subscription fee for creative suite. It's it was very controversial. But now settle down. And yeah, it was extremely controversial at the time. And a lot of folks had to go through the five stages of subscription green. And so we're seeing a little bit of that now, but to to get back on topic. What we're doing is for our current customers. If you're not in the MAC apps store, anyone what we call the perpetual, license where you buy a license to the version you have. We're still doing that. That's outside of the MAC apps store because the rules and mechanics sort of require it inside of the MAC apps store the way we're able to make a viable business out of it is to offer a subscription. So in either case you've got thirty days to use BB at you get all the features. Everything's there after the evaluation period is over there is what we call free mode and free mode sort of fulfils a lot of needs most people. It's everything you need is is it text Wrangler. Basically, it's it's sort of text regular, plus you, and you sort of beat me to hear because one of the things the free mode. Does is it gives us the transition from tex- Wrangler. Yeah. So if you're using text Wrangler now, and you're running back ten twelve or later, go get BB at it from our website. It's a better product. Anyway..

It's the I love my MAC the most. But really, even my raspberry pi is more interesting in so many ways than the MAC desktop is. I just I I really would like to see some sign from apple that they really do care about it that I know there are people who are big fans of the of the MAC and apple I'm sure there are no other people who work very hard on it and who innovate as much as they possibly can. But I just don't see from. That's from the other side of the keynote screen, you know, in the audience looking at what? They choose to present. And what they choose to actually ship. I'm not seeing any level of corporate interest in continuing the max, I think you're I think you're spot on. I think that apple does think that the MAC is we've we are passionate is in IOS devices. However, we have a tradition in desktops. We're not gonna let that die because that's like giving away free money, but we feel that it's most useful as a platform for people to develop things for IOS on or as a alternates to cheap alternative to windows notebooks and chrome books for people who own ipads, and and I phone I just don't see them take about. I don't see them ever doing an ad. That says here is here is a MacIntosh, boom. Here is a competing windows device. Boom. Look how much better the MAC is than this other thing. I just don't see them ever taking that as a point of pride anymore. And I just don't know how that's going to feed. I don't I don't know how not making the MAC better and better and better is gonna make better consumer.

And then boom, and then very shortly thereafter, Intel said, no, by the way, we're getting out of the fudgy modem business. Incidence correlation causation. Somebody asked a question on Twitter, which was reasonable was when until make that determination after the Qualcomm settlement or before. And did it in other words, did it precipitate? The Qualcomm settlement at apple say, Mr. Intel call minister, apple say, yeah, we're not this isn't gonna work. Mr. apple said in the thing where we could still make them if we wanted to win. Well, see Qualcomm is the one you got to beat, and they are entrenched, and they have really really great technology there. And Intel was always going to have an uphill battle that and that battle was going to be helped if apple became a major buyer, and or if Qualcomm had a major defeat that allowed other lawsuits anti-trust suits, they've got against them to become stronger and stronger, and once they saw the cards on the table day decided that none of this looks very good. Let's get out while the getting's good. They have to have had some indication either is in the courtroom or something or some back channel thing that they knew this was not going to go well for apple one way or another. I think apple also the fact that they folded in one day also indicates that they knew that either late in the game earlier that this was not going to go their way. The arguments. The opening arguments were strange like they brought up Kentucky Fried Chicken or and whether you get the potatoes and the chicken, what your expectation is. And they were all sorts of really like folksy analogies. By the lawyers the lawyers. That's the apple saying oh God. This jury's. Not gonna understand. KFC was the call. I forget apple had an equally absurd analogy though, it was just on both sides. And my my feeling in all of this is that they they've known. No one's really going to win this for a long time and Qualcomm has to be careful too. Because most most regulators hate a monopoly, it's white Intel licensed licenses to AMD way Microsoft gave money to apple..
