"Be open to inspiration and innovation and this comes from ideas that have not been fully manifested right like new ideas. So it's just like positive workspaces. People are getting that positive. Workspaces create more creativity and more innovation. And and that's just a thing and then you're in a positive feedback loop. Yeah that's right lead. Yes instead of and let's go there in of like the death spiral of of despair. Well i love none. Yeah totally speaking my language there so from there and from that frame though let's touch on the challenges like what from your chair and all that we've talked about both your work at fab tech in particular with recycling and refurbishment and also your personal experience your personal belief system about humanity. You know what are you feel. Are the biggest challenges. We're facing as an industry toward between us and this new clean energy economy. I think the biggest the biggest challenge has in the past been and is human beings unwillingness to see something new and and to address it. And we've seen this with this resistance to even looking at climate change is happening right and so human beings don't like change and they may hold onto things but so there's that human resistance that has been an issue and i think that that is overcome by enough people. That aren't doing that. And and we see that there's enough leaders set and movement and things are shifting and changing to move us in a new direction and so from your chair. Then you know. How do we stay in that. Space that positive feedback loop of joy innovation joy as you know as opposed to the despair death spiral because i i have felt and i felt myself. You know this summer when the Oroville dam in california. Shut down for lack of lack of water resource. I had a moment I had the moment of like. I don't think we are nearly scared enough. But i'm also now now i am reading Saving us by catherine heo Which is all about how we have these conversations with people who are like climate change. I dunno human. 'cause i don't know how do we have conversations to create more awareness and so i'm curious from your perspective because you have such a rich You know rich thought process in a rich body of experience you know. How do we take the first right steps towards that. Well i'm a. I'm going to take his right back to kind of what you said.

"He joined our street and back in February, 2016. Sure, it is. A columnist for the San Diego Union. Tribune spent most of his career as a member of the editorial board of the Orange County Register, where he still writes a weekly local politics column, Please welcome to the program. Stephen Green hurt. Hey, Larry. Thanks for having me, Stephen, How are you? I was doing pretty good other than its 113 here in Sacramento, Stephen. Every time we talk, it seems like things have gotten worse. Whether it's water. Whether it's the unfunded pension liabilities. Can we start with water? Your book winning the water Wars. California can meet its water needs by promoting abundance rather than by managing scarcity. I'm reading it right now, Um, what's going on here? Why haven't we invested enough so that we don't have water shortages in a state that's got a little body of water right next to it called the Pacific Ocean. Yeah, it's a public policy choice. 50% of the state's water is used for environmental purposes in etiquette flows out actually to the Pacific Ocean. 40% for AG 10% for Or urban uses total of 5.7% for residential uses. Yet our leadership wants us to. They seem to like rationing in and of itself, and I'm all for conservation and so forth, but But this idea it's just diminishing returns, but they're not planning ahead. Uh, you know, it should have at the end of the last drought, which four years ago as a historically bad drought. There should have been plans to build more water infrastructure to jumpstart these desalination plants. To get water recycling like they do in Orange County moving and instead it was just back to Business as usual, so there's not any planning and it's not Really that difficult? I mean, it's all these projects are expensive and difficult to do, but you just need to plan ahead and get them done. But it would take longer to to complete an environmental impact report now that I probably did to build the entire state water project. Stephen, Give me your political assessment. Why aren't people more ticked off about this? Is it because you get up in the morning? You take a shower, The water runs you open up the faucet, the water runs. So what's the problem? Well, I think for most people really don't understand the subject, and I don't blame anyway. This isn't like me being condescending. It's just a complicated issue. Like you say we're just You know, we're just happy to have water and we figure that our leaders are planning ahead and we just figured well, sure we're having drought shortages. We need to use less of it, but either not cognizant of how much of the water just as used for environmental uses and how little planning that's going into it. So we have get governor Newsom announced a $5.1 billion plan to deal with the drought. But if you look closely at the at the specifics in there, it's a lot of it for things like Habitat restoration. None of it's really infrastructure building. Many of the projects are fine, and I'm all for habitat Restoration and you know, but we never seem to We? The state never seems to make do the plans and move forward with the with these projects, and these projects take time to build. What do you mean that half of the water is being used for environmental uses. Stephen It slows out to the Pacific Ocean. So of the total available amount of water to the to the state. After you know, after evaporation. Half of it flows out through the river systems and just right into the Pacific Ocean. A lot of that has to Flow that way. You don't want to dry up all the rivers, but that's where half of it goes. And Metropolitan Water District. They have a saying, Big gulp little shit. So when there are rainy years, you need to zip. Larger portion of that water that just goes out to the Pacific and store it But we're not doing that, and we have a number of infrastructure projects off stream reservoir projects. That have been on the books for decades, and the state just doesn't get about go about building them. And in the old days, you know, and Pat Brown was governor. He just said, You know, we we have a growing population. We need to store more water. So they built projects just like the state did previously with highways and education system. Now we we don't even we don't even maintain what we have looked at What happened at Oroville Dam with With the near catastrophe at the at the two spillways so we don't protect. We don't take care of what we have. We have a terrible We don't really have a good water pricing system. It's very hard to buy and sell water. There's a huge bureaucratic process. Um, state officials opposed private water development projects like the Caddies project in the Mojave Desert. So a lot of it just stems from us. Over emphasis on environmental priorities, rather than just to focus on getting more water in the system and water abundance helps the environment too. That's the other thing. Um, a lot of like in the Monterrey area. The Carmel River is being bled dry. They don't have enough water sources. A desalination science there would it would save the Carmel River. But It's just this kind of environmental philosophy. Uh, that takes precedence. Now, Stephen, Is there a face of this environmental philosophy? Is there a politician or a group of politicians that you can name in Sacramento who represent the very kind of thing you're talking about? You know That's hard, too, because in fact, it's worse than that. It's just the accepted wisdom, right? It's not like there's one horrible person who's advancing. You know some of these these ideas. It's just that's just kind of the way of doing business in Sacramento. Everything is very bureaucratic. There's no in my book. I talked about the old The old days, and we don't want to return totally to how things were done. But there was this can do attitude on the night our population has doubled. I mean, it's slowing. Now we actually lose people losing people, but it's doubled since the seventies. And there's only been one major piece of water infrastructure built since then. So if the population doubles and you don't really spend to double the amount of water capacity or even improve it at all. You're going to have shortages. You know, Stephen, I talked to Bill Jones. He is the former secretary of State. I think the last Republican elected statewide in California, and he said exactly what you said. He said. Our current infrastructure is built for a population. That's 50% what we have right now. We have not kept pace with population growth. Stephen, We come back. I want to ask you. Why is it that the greenies are winning the argument? Why is it that the as you said, Accepted wisdom in Sacramento is that you know, we just have to conserve. We have to preserve our our environmental needs to take president over the growing needs of people in the state. That's now twice the size of what it was back in the 19 seventies. Why are the green people winning this argument? Stephen Green Hunt is my guest. I'm Larry Elder. Report is sponsored by Panera. 8 60 am the answer..

The surge anyway is that gas supply is about 17% lower than where it was before the pandemic, even though the demand is nearly back to normal oil production hasn't really gone up over the last year. Potentially because prices last year were so low that oil companies are in no hurry to get back into the game.

What Would Happen If Chabot Dam in the East Bay Hills Broke Open?

"What would happen if chicago damn cracked open an empty the lake behind it onto neighborhoods in san leandro and east oakland. It's an alarming thought. We asked cake. Ud's dan bricky. Who's reported on safety issues at california's oroville dam to find the answer. Holly and vickers kings question is a really good one because it reminds us that all dams pose risks of some kind given the nature of the job they perform holding back huge volumes of water they can turn from placid lake into deadly torrent. If unleashed all at once. They deserve very close attention. When that attention lapses catastrophes can do happen in late may eighteen eighty nine flood. Water overflowed badly maintained private dam in western pennsylvania. Triggering its collapse. A wall of water race down the valley below a century later. Historian david mccullough said. The johnstown flood was so vividly alive in the local consciousness. I grew up in western pennsylvania. I'd heard about the johnstown flood my whole life as children. We used to shout run for the hills. The damas busted little knowing what real terror is in those words. The flood wiped entire towns off the map and killed twenty. Two hundred people in california owns its own special chapter in the history of dam disasters with a tragedy that unfolded more than ninety years ago in a remote canyon fifty miles north of downtown los angeles from the day. The saint francis dam opened in one thousand nine hundred twenty six. It leaked the folks in the farm. Towns downstream used to joke. They'd see you later if the damn don't break on march twelfth nine hundred twenty eight. The saint francis damn disintegrated just hours after it was pronounced sound by los angeles water. Chief william mulholland who had designed and built the two year old structure when the massive concrete dam broke apart water raised more than fifty miles to the pacific ocean killing about four hundred fifty people along the way but those events one hundred thirty years ago in johnstown ninety some years ago in los angeles county sound like ancient history much more recently california. Got a lesson in how dangerous and costly failure of even part of a major dam can be failure ambiance spillway structure results in an uncontrolled. Lisa flood waters from link oroville and eating evacuation from the low twenty. Seventeen collapse the spillway at oroville dam in the northern sierra foothills one hundred thirty miles northeast of san francisco touched off a series of events that lead local officials to order one hundred eighty eight thousand people to flee their homes. This is not a drill. Repeat this is not a drill. Spill ways are crucial to preventing overtopping. That's what happens. When a reservoir rises over the top of the dam and simply spills over a spillway is like an emergency valve. Damn managers can open to safely release water from a reservoir bills over the top but back in february twenty seventeen oroville dam spillway began to disintegrate just as a series of winter storms dumped huge amounts of rain across northern california without a fully functioning. Spillway lake oroville rose rapidly water poured over a hillside that was supposed to serve as an emergency spillway. That emergency spillway began to fail to leading to the mass evacuation. In the aftermath investigators found the emergency spillway was ill conceived and the main spillway was badly designed poorly built and inadequately maintained. So how is should bowe damn different from all those bad dams and what does east bay mud have to say about. Chaba cracking open and unleashing catastrophe on the east bay. Simple answer to that question is that the dam would never crack open. That's jimmy yolly east bay mud director of engineering and chief damn safety officer he oversees the district twenty six times including chabad. Damn the reality is that the dams are designed such that. They don't just crack open. You will see signs of a failure if one is to occur and The dan's designs with monitoring equipment to make sure that you can see that happening if it was a east bay mud confidence that a dam built within a quarter mile of a dangerous fault will stand up to violent shaking. Let's take a look at how the dam was first built. Nearly one hundred fifty years ago and how it's been maintained since

I was gonna say, I think the post article was more than a little bit misguided, especially when you consider that if the newspaper print medium, which has been proven to be in decline for about a decade now. It's also when you consider the amount of times of paper like the Washington Post and other newspapers have had to retract, apologize or have been sued for articles that they've gotten wrong. I would just take. I would just take what they say with a grain of salt, and I wouldn't give it much credence. Now speaking for myself, I had never listened to talk radio in my life until about two years ago, I was doing some moving, and I happen to turn your show on and I enjoyed it so much that no, I do. Listen to your radio show, So I've only been listening to you now for about about two years, But I've been doing it, you know, fairly regularly. And thanks to you, someone who would never listen to am radio now does Also because of that, I can tell you right now there are people in three different countries listening to me talk to you right now, because my friend and manly Australia's listening to this, my friend and arterial Canada is listening to this and a couple of people in scrap. Miklos Scotland are listening to me talk to you right now. But when I'm done talking to you, they're probably gonna message me. So I think the fact that door Radio program out of a little radio station in Sacramento. As the world has a worldwide audience at this very moment. I'm feeling pretty good for you, Robert. That is really great. Um, you know that I am. Listen, I am honored that you would do you a guy that didn't listen to talk radio finds the show You said you're moving.

I really enjoyed that show with the DNI. A expert you've had shows on crying. You've had shows on history. But I have to give you the credit for giving you the pinnacle of your show. What's during the Paradise Fire? All the other types of medium were gone. If you were in the paradise for you lost your house. You lost your TV. You couldn't even Lucinda on your phone. But if you had a car in a radio people were listening to you. And the information that your station kfbk with giving out. I mean, some of those shows that you did during the paradise Fire. Probably help people find a place to live. It might get got people that thought they lost a loved one that found someone. And so that was probably the best of the best of your show because you and can't Okay, We're going out of your way to help people find other people. They were worried. They were scared and all the other mediums you couldn't get on the Internet. If your house burned down, so you had to listen to the radio. Great point, Robert. That's a great point assumes we knew what was happening. We just put everything else aside. Said this is what we're doing. We're gonna communicate with you. You're going to tell us what you need. You're going to tell us what you're going through. And if anyone could help, we're gonna put this whole today together. Yeah, that's see. That's a great point and And I thank you for saying that, Robert and yeah, I would say I would agree with you. I think that during the almost eight years we would do in this particular show those were the most important on DATs something and you make a great point. It's something you're not going to get is you're listening to a podcast. You're not going to get that. And it was the same thing with the Oroville Dam. When people were lined up and thinking, Oh, my gosh, The dam is gonna It's gonna break and we're all gonna be in trouble will be flooded. And it was the same thing then. So, Robert Axle in point, and I really want to thank you. And you also made another good point. Robert, Please call us again, buddy. And I know you do. Is that does the show matter? Is. Does the show matter? I have a friend. He's very kind. Greg, Greg. Thank you. Great says, you know, Pat. I turned on my my radio on terrestrial radio. One time and that's to listen to you the rest of time. I'm listening, the other things. So does the show itself matter. And I'm not looking for any kudos for my show this early, but I thank you for that. But does that matter? Or the fact that we're so relevant. When things were going down. We're covering it. That's super important. Thank you. Eric and West Sacramento waiting patiently. Hello, Eric. Hi, Patrick. Are you good, sir? I hope you're doing well. Yeah, well, I was listening.

"Climate is a free flowing snake river and connectivity to the salmon river secondly the removal of the lower snake river dams insurers a two to three fold increase in what we call small to adult returns. And i'll talk about that a little bit later. The short word for small to adult Return is an essay. And lastly that we cannot squander the genetics are wild fish by failing to say them because the wild genetics of native fish it preserves the option to restore the future of the species without wild fish. The monoculture of huge numbers of factory fish light big agriculture allows the loss of biodiversity and sustainable in the face of climate change. And of course people know the livability and sustainability of our planet in the future. Volta species depends on restoring native species. Especially those that are public cares about. Those are kind of icon species like salmon and steelhead so to address three topics pretty quickly dams the fish climate change and first of all dance fragment. Court connective quarters are rivers and they block essential habitats that migratory fish need to complete their life cycle. Dan's flows the water quality the nutrients and sediment in as an example the lowest maker or dams they cause chronic lethal temperatures both in the lower snake river and the columbia above sixty eight degrees fahrenheit and that sixty eight degrees. Fahrenheit is a marker because it impedes migrations and it causes chronic a lethal mortality s. Been happening from mid june to mid september in some years when we start removing dance we can restore biodiversity and fish runs and really good examples. Are the pod. Scott beck in maine and the hood river white salmon river in the in the pacific northwest since the early nineteen. Hundreds almost sixteen hundred dams have been removed in largely because they're either below cost dams that are privately. Owned people. can't afford to take care of them anymore. Or damn safety really good examples of this in the last couple years are the oroville dam in california and twenty nineteen where they had to move large numbers of people thousands of people to avoid loss of life and then even in michigan this year. We had to dam failures that also had the risk of a coup hurting or killing people. So and the columbia river all the techno fixes of barging in hatchery. Fishes spilling water. Dams improving juvenile bipolar systems. The failed restore a single native listed species. So nine to talk about the fish. Salmon chinook salmon sockeye and steelhead were listed in the early nineteen nineties. Sadly coho had already gone extinct in the mid. Nineteen eighties are spring and summer and Sockeye salmon and steelhead the wild fish are less than one percent of their historic numbers as an example our historic spring-summer shook used to be one million fish in twenty nineteen. There were six thousand one hundred thirty. Let me repeat that one million fish down to six thousand one hundred thirty fish so wild fish are heading. Spiraling towards extinction at runs are almost entirely dependent on. Hatchery fish this loss of biodiversity decline in multiple life histories the characterize our native species. Those are the things that would have ensured the survival in are claiming on our changing climate. And we're losing those. With a monocultural catching fish. It's slowly destroying our well. Genetics because with each generation as henry fish go in spawned with wild fish is an example. Also our juvenile passer survival system from battle stream to the ocean. If you take a snake river fish are salmon river fishing. It goes all the way to the ocean that juvenile fish has about fifteen percent chance of surviving after going through eight dams. Even though the army corps of engineers claims they have ninety five percents survival. You multiply ninety five.

The money comes from FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, and the extra funding will be used for spillway repairs and reconstruction. Those funds are on top of the $260 million that FEMA has already committed to the lower portion of the spillway. According to California's Department of Water Resource is massive erosion in the spillway forced the evacuation of more than 180,000 Californians.

Trump administration denies California relief for 6 fires

"Hey, Michael. Good morning. Good morning to you. Well, the Trump Administration did reject this request. It was in a letter from Governor Newsome back in September late September. This would mean essentially hundreds of millions of dollars to clean up damage from the six recent fires across the state, and it can be appealed. It will be appealed, but let's look at the motives behind the Trump administration's decision. What are they? Well, I don't want to see what the motives are, because this is a very much developing story. I did talk with Brian Ferguson of the Office of Emergency Services just within the last half hour. And you know, he makes it clear that they will be appealing. They don't seem particularly stunned by this they have. The Trump Administration has approved these kinds of requests for a presidential declarations in the past for wildfires and other disasters on clearly, you know, this wildfire season has been a particularly bad a historically bad one with Really bad fires in L, a Fresno Madeira counties and Casino San Bernadino, San Diego and Siskiyou. And so the administration sent this letter requesting disaster relief funds. More than four million acres burned in 2020. That's I think, double the state's previous record. And so the Trump Administration in responding FEMA in responding Said that the standards have not been met based on their review. So I did a said talk to Brian Ferguson and earlier this morning and this is how he described what the status of this request is. You know, this is not the end of our discussions in our process with the federal government. We were very much in the middle of this. Discussions with which the mother with other federal agencies can continue the letters and the legal documents for for months or even years. So we continued T work expeditiously that You know, turn on those programs leverages every ounce of federal support we can get, But this is very much an ongoing process. And he did say Michael that there are other parts of federal money that are available, like for small businesses and for you know individuals, A Zay said. This presidential declaration is the highest standard. On. So they know they only apply for these when they think they've got all of the verification and the data that they need to get it. So you know, I think they're not pulling the you know, pushing the panic button at this point. But clearly it was a surprise. And of course, you know your question was, you know, one of the motives and the initial. I think you know, the tendency is going to be to say, Oh, this is political. This is a psycho. This is trump trying to get you some back. You know, That may be true. It may not be true and it may all work out. In the end. This is not the first time That this sort of haggling back and forth has happened over an emergency declaration A few years ago, something similar happened with parts of the Oroville Dam. There were no questions about whether it was on state land federal land, so they haggled back and forth. And they finally resolved that. So you know, a cz Brian Ferguson suggested. This is not the end of the story. But it is surprising to say the least. Well, the president did approve welfare relief over the summer, and there are other sources of funding. FEMA grants, for example, is you mentioned, but no reasons were given, which is why I asked about motive, but remember the president and claim the state was not doing enough to prevent wildfires. He said. Governor Newsome did a terrible job forest management not breaking enough leaves, I guess like they do in Finland and The state faces over a $54 billion deficit because of the pandemic. It needs these funds to rebuild communities to rebuild buildings. Tio essentially fix damage roads and bridges. Absolutely, and you know, that was all included in the letter that the governor sent to FEMA into the president. Damage. As you said, you know, all kinds of infrastructure, not just the homes and buildings but bridges, schools, libraries, water and power facilities. Other infrastructure number of people have been killed. And you know this is extremely expensive and there are tremendous costs hundreds of millions of dollars for equipment and firefighters, fire retardant. There are all kinds of planes and helicopters, emergency emergency shelters, of course that get set up. So you know this is very expensive. It is a somewhat standard kind of request the kind of things that we see for hurricanes and Floods, wildfires and so on on. And as you said Trump has so far FEMA through and the Trump Administration have granted all of these on, you know, the president has said very recently that he has a good relationship with Newsome. You've Newsome was even featured briefly in an ad, which I'm sure he was not happy with the governor, but nonetheless, they do try to maintain despite all the political differences, which are major They do try toe team maintain a good relationship for just things like this, And we should mention that some of the stories that have come about as a result of this denial or refusal at this point have mentioned Wade Crow Foot. California Cabinet secretary confronting President Trump on climate change that one could assume falling on deaf ears. Well, you know, certainly. That was big news A few weeks ago when the president was here and yes, the governor's natural resource is director did confront him and I'm sure the president no did not appreciate the half. But I think we need to be careful to ascribe what what has happened here with this request to be directly related to that it might be, but it's not something that we're going to know. It's easy to speculate about Andi. It certainly wouldn't be inconsistent with the president's behavior on other issues in the past, But as I said FEMA are the Office of Emergency Services this morning at least, is not saying that and you know they're going to be appealing this initial rejection of the request.

"Here and the morning crew. It's a Monday, September 21 Some of the big stories that we are carrying on covering fires in Southern California. I've gotten any better not gotten any better. The Bobcat Fire 103,000 Acres 15% contained the Eldorado fire that was set off by that gender Reveal party near Yucaipa 22,000 Acres 59% contained Old one firefighter and naturally Ah, what happened? The Ruth Bader Ginsburg the death of Ruth Bader Ginsberg on Friday, and they're so much Ah, both in discussing her history. Honoring her legacy and the political follow fallout, which is in sane. All right, just Ah, let's switch a little bit because I don't want to do that the whole morning and try to understand a little bit. How we became ground zero for climate disasters, and I know Ah, I talk a lot about it about climate change, because in front of my eyes in front of your eyes We are seeing the effects of climate change. And for those of you that argue, Oh, it's not climates changed his car, causing our climate to become hotter in the hurricane season to become longer and more frequent and stronger. Guys at least tell me that it is that climate change hasn't been exacerbated by man that that science incidently I mean, there's no way around it. You can tell me the earth is flat all day long. You can tell me the moon shot was fake all day long. And you know what I'm gonna do argue with you. Could tell me Evolution doesn't exist when they do actually going to have a debate with you about it. So, ah, little bit about the Ah how we became ground zero for climate disasters and there is a logic to it. We know exactly why This year is the worst wildfire season we've ever had. It's the hottest AKA August we've ever had the drought lasting from 2011 toe last year. One of the worst flood emergencies on record. Remember the Oroville Dam and almost broke, it almost failed, and that's the biggest damn in the state. We have a treat. $3 trillion economy. 1 10 Americans. And because we're so big, we are more susceptible. It's the philosophy of the higher they are the farther they fall. And that's exactly what is happening to us and it is going to get worse, according to climate experts. What climate change is doing is exposing our our vulnerabilities in systems that we've engineered. I mean, this is us. We have done it and we've ignored what the climate is doing. We have some of the greatest accomplishment in infrastructure. Look at the just the water transportation from the mountains to the coast from north to South. We have 1500 reservoirs. And that causes a huge problem because that's not the way that nature intended this water to go. We're a semi desert. And we're taking water from Northern California, California Aqueduct system and we're running out of it. Mom. Also we subdue the fire's been talking about that. Why is there so much brush? That is igniting and so dry for 100 years cause we put out the fires. We don't do prescribe controlled burns to take out some of the AA. I take out some of the dry brush and we fight every fire. Lightning fires, which are part of Part of nature and there getting worse because we're changing because they get more storms and ah, they're stronger. And also look what we're doing. We're also making more land ville visit Ah, livable for millions of people right up against this forests. Right up against that fuel, which ignites which, when ignited. Just burned like crazy. Threw out half of California. We're building cities along the shoreline. Wait till we get erosion on that one. I wouldn't buy property in Malibu anytime soon. You can spend $14 million for a house in Malibu. Talk to be 2020 years from now when it's worth $14, and it's underwater. But we haven't optimism here that defines our state and defies reality. In reality, we are all flat Earthers when you think about it. We've been warned over and over again. This is really the only issue that really has changed. Is the experts saying, This is gonna happen in 20, where we are now is gonna happen in 2030 or 2040 and parts of it in 2050. Hey, Maazel tov. It's going on right now. Right in front of our eyes. And according the experts, it's going to become worse and I know I'm going to get a lot of grief or looking at the negative part of life. But we have to deal with it and all weaken do is slow down. What is I think we've already tipped over the edge. We've gone over the edge. I mean, there is no way to stop it. Now. It's a question of slowing down. And instead of speeding up to the point where you wake up in the morning and all sudden it's changed from yesterday. All you could do is wake up a month. From now on. It's changed from my yesterday that make any sense you wake up a month from now change from yesterday. Not quite. The changes were seeing a month a month. We're going to be year to year. And so are we going to Are we going to change? We'll have a couple of problems ahead of us. We have a president who is telling us Ah, that the way to stop all this is to clean our forest floors. Which, incidentally, don't particularly burn the way the brush works. And how California in the Western states have done a horrible job of maintaining their forests. And it's their fault of the government. Well, the problem is, is that the majority of land is federal land that's burning. And the feds. Well, they're not doing anything other than tremendously successful management. And then you have because you have more drought on and that's long term, you have water moving to the south from the R Sierra Nevada mountains. Which is our snow pack and that Is moving faster and quicker, and so the snowpack melts faster. And what's really weird is because not enough water is coming to us. Because those storms air getting ah, bigger. The water floods. It doesn't help us very much. The cities are sucking up the aquifers. Oh, God, you know, Is there anything you know what I'm going to end it with this as it as bad as it is. Probably when you step out of your house tomorrow, look around and say you know what? It's still a great place to live, and then you get hit by a truck. All right. Why don't we stop at this point and Wow. What is in your diet Coke this morning? Happy pants. Ah. I mean, you are just a little ray of sunshine. Well, I'm going to get a little bit more ready. I'm going to talk about how our legal system is going to swing to the right. So far were to fall off the swing on that one. And, ah We're gonna have a good time. Do they have a case and 9 30?.

"K k live everywhere in the I Heart radio. Yeah. Smoke on the water indeed. And in your lungs today, and it looks like for the foreseeable future around here. You're trying to get out. I'm really trying, Tio. Teo to find a responsible path to someplace that's got blue skies. We're talking, however, about power energy utilities. The thing is upon which we relied to keep ourselves comfortable in some cases is far more important for people. Than others and in these extraordinary conditions I'm not the one that's very much inclined to rely upon air condition. But I guarantee a air conditioning is as the rule today because I do not want anything open. In fact, I'm in the building. Now that has the appearance of being aired type, but I can smell smoke inside the building. S O. I t lose power in this environment is just is unconscionable. I just cannot imagine it hasn't happened to you. What do you think what You want the state to do differently to minimize the likelihood of this happening in the worst days in the history the state and it appears to be the worst days. We were able Tio Tio avoid rolling blackouts. Because of bad decisions made by human beings We haven't lost. The resource is we simply have committed to not availing ourselves of certain kinds of resource is because there are consequences associated with such a course of action. So I understand. Commit to something that works better. And once it's in place. On on Lee once it's in place. Is it wise to move on? Your thoughts. 808 34 15 30. Let's check in with Sean up in beautiful Yuba City, Sean. Good afternoon. Welcome to the conversation next for holding up Asia. McGinnis, I'm well, sir. How are you? I'm doing Excellent. Um, couple thoughts I had about this situation. We're we're constantly playing from The point of after sought after the levee breaks up in Oroville Dam breaks up Norville. We're dealing with the mess after the fact. After all the Kindle and that's been left forced floor goes up in flames were then dealing with the aftermath. Where is that? You know what I would love to see? And I bet all of the listeners online on on the radio right now would agree. I love to see a third party, um, administrator or auditor go through checks and balances in a very, very open and honest way. So that the people who actually vote for these jokers could see what they're spending their money on. Yeah, not not only the money that has collected tax money and fiscal money that's added to the coffers or what have you But There, there a lot of money that they are given for being in office. I mean, if you've got 10 people working on the governor's mansion, I heard that he moved to a beautiful, luxurious house up in elder out Hills. I don't I don't know that that has happened yet, but there's certainly a lot of talk about that. But even without that his mansion in Fair Oaks is very desirable in this gate, and it's got a lot of things that other people don't have. Which, by the way, I understand if you have the resource is live the life you, can I I'll give him that. But Eyes interesting in his case, because he has created an environment in which other people don't have the opportunity to set to live so nicely, frankly. But I digress. Here's the other deal. Here's the other situation it it reminds me of the of the smooth talking pastors who continually ask you for 10% of your profits 10% of your wage, and yet they're living in lavish lap of luxury.

"The water from a frozen formats. No liquid On DSO. When that position comes down, it's much more likely to run off and it because very quickly it turns into flow in our rivers and strange. And Paul Rodgers. I mean, does this square with other studies that have come out talking about the impact of atmospheric rivers? The fact that we could see more of them? In the coming decades. And do you think we have the water infrastructure to handle it? Um, that's a good question. You know, we have kind of a love hate relationship with them in Spirit River storms in California. A lot of people call him Pineapple Express storms, Ondas, Alex said. They are the giant conveyor belt of water in the sky, and we're learning a lot more about them. And we have been in recent years and so You know, they Kenbrell 25 times the volume of the Mississippi River to California. And so in years where we have a number of them, you know 10 15 or more. They can account for 50% or more of our precipitation. I mean, it's a difference between whether we have a drought or whether we don't. The problem is when we get big, strong ones. They also cause mayhem. It wasn't that long in 2017 remember That a series of atmospheric River storms basically erected the spillway at Oroville Dam, and we had to evacuate nearly 200,000 people at the same time. It was also flooding downtown San Jose and causing $100 million damage. So these storms bring the water we need, but they also can bring destruction. And, yeah, there have been some other studies in recent years. Talking about more violent weather swings over the next, you know. Few generations from climate change. And so the question is, is California's water system ready to deal with that? And the answer is not really not really, and we'll dig into that more in just a minute. But let me invite our listeners to join the conversation because we have you both with us for this opening.

Org or wherever you get your podcasts gets caused by dam failures have declined in recent decades but thousands of people live move downstream from high risk dams. Today we've already seen some of those dams fail in the last few years the aftermath of which have been devastating. The Nation's tallest to the Oroville dam in California collapsed two years ago and force more than one hundred and eighty thousand people to evacuate the area and in Nebraska. This past March the failure of the Spencer Dam and the flooding flooding followed led to the destruction of homes and businesses and left one person dead authorities. Say a damn has failed on a river. You can see the just the Karsh conditions there. Warm weather followed by massive amounts of rain caused water and ice to flood on a highway. Three people who live near the dam are still missing whether has prevented search and rescue efforts efforts there. Most of the nation's dams are more than fifty years. Old and experts are increasingly concerned that the dams aren't equipped to handle intensifying rain. Storms and and floods linked to climate change tenzin of Vega recently spoke with David Liebe correspond with the Associated Press about the state of damn infrastructure in the US. Some of these dams literally literally have cracks in them. Water is leaking out through concrete or in some cases when the dams are made out of earth water is bubbling up. which could mean? There's a sign of internal attornal erosion in the dam. And that's not good. In some cases the problems at the dams are well natural. You might say there are trees and bushes that are growing on top of the dams. That could cause problems. There are animals burrowing holes and dams in some cases and other cases. The problems are a little more hard hard to detect for example. Some dams have spillway as that are of an inadequate capacity to handle the amount of water that could come out them in an extreme rainfall. All of aunt who is responsible for inspecting and maintaining these dams is there enough oversight or regulation. Right now there really is a patchwork across the country. When it comes to the regulation of dams some dams are owned by the federal government and they are inspected by the federal government? Perhaps by the Army Corps of Engineers ears. These are dams that you might think of. That are really large. Maybe they're holding back a huge lake and they're generating hydropower but most of the dams across the country country are regulated by state inspectors. These dams may be owned by local cities counties. They might be owned by private individuals or homeowners associations associations or a business when it comes to regulating these dams many states hire their own inspectors who go out and visually look at these dams but but in other states they rely on the damn owner to hire a private engineer to go out and inspect their own facility so it really does vary quite a bit around the country. David were there any states that stood out as far as having more regis or more severe damn conditions than others while there are certainly some states that had more four of these dams in the high hazard poor an unsatisfactory condition. Georgia had nearly two hundred of those North Carolina. One hundred sixty eight eight. In fact that the southeast had sort of a a larger cluster of these but it wasn't exclusively to southeast where we saw high numbers of these Pennsylvania had one hundred forty forty five in that condition. Ohio hundred twenty four And even New York had forty eight and those condition which ranked about eleven nationally. So the fact that we're able to identify dams in this category in forty four out of the forty five states for which we received information tells you that this is an issue across the country. Not just just. In one particular region there are people most likely living either in the vicinity of these dams or directly downstream from these dams. Are they aware of the scope of the problem. And some cases yes in other cases probably not these emergency action plans lay out the area that would be flooded did if the dam were to catastrophically fail and what structures lie in the way what homes went businesses when you might expect the water to reach their are you at the dam did fail but these documents also spell out. Who would be responsible for contacting alerting the public about this danger now in states where these are public records is possible that people may be aware of this and some states where these are not public records? It's sort of hard to imagine if you don't live within eyesight of the dam that you're aware of the potential danger because these dams if they were to fail they're not just flooding the people who who are within eyesight of the damn hundred yards downstream. That water is going to flow into a creek which is going to flow into a smaller river. which is going to eventually make? Its way to a bigger river but along the way there's potential for people who are two three five miles ten miles fifteen miles downstream to be affected if they're in the valley along. These waterways David What can be done given the severity of some of the damage. That you've described here in your reporting well. The federal government does have some money available for the first time in the two thousand nineteen fiscal year. The Federal Government through FEMA distributed ten million dollars to about half the states to address high hazard. Dams that are in poor condition putting people at risk. Now that ten million dollars if you looked at it really would be about enough have to fix one damn but this money is not to make the actual repairs. It's to finance. The engineering studies the plans. That would be necessary to eventually. Oh you make the repairs. A few states also have their own grant programs where state agencies are making state money available to repair dams so there is some attention. Attention being brought to this issue but to fix everything would cost tens of billions of dollars. There is not a budget for that at any level of government right now now as storms become more intense is climate change creating a greater sense of urgency. In what you've found around this issue. We'll certainly among officials in damn regulatory agencies. There is awareness that dams may have been designed for one level of storm and may not still be capable of handling the type of weather that is being experienced now or may be experienced in the near future. I WANNA give an example of how that comes into play here so what you don't I want to have happen on. A damn is for the water to come over the top of it because when water stops flowing over the top of the damn deck in a row the backside of it which causes the dam to fall down and fail so most dams will have a spillway built into them. And that's a way for the water to start flowing out before it reaches the top. In many cases these spillway as Are Not Large enough to handle the amount of water that could be coming out down. There is a lake in New York called Lake Subagyo. It's in a state park. It's near the New Jersey border. The inspectors noted that it spillway was seriously inadequate to handle the amount of water that it could have to handle and part of the challenges that to rebuild and repair this spillway. You would also after we build a road and a bridge that pass over the dam. Their project could cost fifteen million dollars. And that's a lot of money. Which is why it hasn't happened yet?

Them became clear in two thousand seventeen.

There's trivia which of these animals hibernates in winter tree squirrelled the Studio Monarch Butterfly for silver event. Mosquitoes are the only animals on this list and entered Dia Pause Hibernation like period of shutting down for the cold winter months. So that explains why the Pesky pests always come back in the summer and when they do why why do they always seem to bite some people more often than others scientist say. There are a number of things. Mosquitoes are attracted to strongly. scented soaps are believed to get their attention along along with certainty odorants and perfumed the increased carbon dioxide. We give off when we're exercising can create a buzz among the insects as well as our sweat as far forest clothing goes researchers are divided over. Whether it's bright or dark clothes that make us easier for mosquitoes to spot. But a recent study has found that different types of the body odour could make some people more prone to mosquito bites than others. Is there anything that can be done about that. Maybe one day if a drug is designed that can change. Those odors could that have side effects of its own. Yes but because of the diseases they carry. Mosquitos are responsible for more human deaths than any other animal. There's a lot of international national interest in keeping them away. It's not all in your head. Some people really are more attractive to mosquitos than others. Research has determined that it has to do with how each of us smells which is individual to everyone and partly determined by our DNA fraternal. Twins are much less similar to each other than identical twins are in terms of DNA and odor so experts in London conducted a study between fraternal twins identical twins to see if there was the difference between between the two when they expose the twins mosquitoes. They found that identical twins were bidding in similar amounts but fraternal twins were bitten in differing amounts meaning meaning that mosquitoes really do bite. Some individuals more than others and that's at least partially because of body odor. Scientists already have a sense of which compounds and human odors attract mosquitoes. They're hoping to develop a drug that changes human body odors to make them less attractive to mosquitos that could have major public health benefits offense especially in areas where mosquitoes transmit diseases like malaria dengue fever and West Nile virus.
