James Webb Telescope has passed its final checks The Hubble replacement, the Hubble replacement, and it's going to soon be shipped through the Panama Canal down to Karura. I'd like you wanna Karoo. Excuse me is it's huge, Is it? Is it fillets? Massive. Oh, I haven't seen it with the mirrors unfurled. I've seen it with the mirrors folded up, but it is Massive. It's going to have a about a 21 Ft Wide Mirror, which is three times almost three times the diameter of the Hubble. And it will be working in infrared, so you can see much further because it can see through Hubble's mostly visible and ultraviolet wavelengths. So an infrared you can see past all the dust and the junk that's out in the deeper parts of the universe. And really start looking back at the very edge of the beginning of time, which is very promising, and it's gonna be parked what they call Earth Sun l two or the Grange to which is a stable point out beyond, uh, Earth's orbit, so it'll be in the Earth's shadow all the time. So between that and the natural cooling, it's got and the artificial quickly and Scott's got sunshades that could pop up hopefully Um, you'll be able to start really answering some of these very basic questions about the beginning of the universe. So exciting, so exciting.

"Oregon feels like well, the Mojave Desert Today, The high is expected to be 114 degrees. Portland set a record yesterday at 112 degrees. It was so hot That it melted the power cables on Portland Street cars, which shut down the public transit system. Help people avoid life threatening heat exposure. Officials lifted covid 19 capacity limits at malls, movie theaters and pools. But this heat is not just affecting Oregon. The National Weather Service has an excessive heat warning across the west, including the state of Washington, parts of California, Idaho, Montana, Nevada. So what role does climate change Plan? All of this here to talk about? That is Erica Fleischmann, She's professor at Oregon State University and the director of the Oregon Climate Change Research Institute. Welcome to press play. Thanks very much. I'm happy to be here. More happy to have you? Well, first of all, before we get to the climate change issue. I just want to know personally how you're coping with this heat because it's not the normal thing. I know you're not in Portland. You're in Corvallis. But what has it been like for you? I'm very fortunate. I don't have to work outside. I am also very fortunate that my home has air conditioning, so it hasn't been particularly comfortable. But I'm able to cool off pretty easily and a lot of other people don't have that luxury. Right. So is air conditioning the norm in Oregon or the exception. In some parts of this state, especially western Oregon, where it tends to be cooler than the eastern part of the state. I would say about half of the people that I know have air conditioning. I don't know the exact numbers on on how prevalent it is, but it's not. It's certainly not universal. It's not thought of as something that is essential to homes in this part of the Northwest. Is that something that people should now consider going forward. I think that where they have the resources to do so more and more people will choose to Seriously consider having air conditioning in their homes. And you know, people in other parts of the country are Are used to handling this kind of heat right in Texas, much of the south. I mean, a lot of the country gets super hot in the summer, and they they know how to handle it. But I guess Portland and Oregon, the Pacific Northwest in general. They're not used to it. And so is this. Is this a steep learning curve that they're having to grapple with now It's a couple of things. It's acclamation. I mean, you can think about anything that people are not accustomed to. It takes a while to physically become accustomed to it. So think about people who are hiking mountains at very high elevations. People don't you know go to go climb Everest on the first day of their body takes a while to a colony, and it's It's analogous with any type of extreme, whether it's heat or cold or humidity. People's bodies are not accustomed to it, and it takes a while to become accustomed to it. It's also, um infrastructure is not generally built to withstand these types of temperatures, you know, in excess of 100 degrees in this region. So there's an infrastructure um problems of incompatible infrastructure and also problems of people's physical acclamation. You know, you said more people are going to have to get air conditioning, but that just doesn't that perpetuate the cycle because you know people are using more. And our energy likely burning more fossil fuels for that air conditioning. It can many municipalities and states and across the country are trying to shift these sources of electricity to cleaner sources. So to renewable sources, the Oregon Legislature just said, um a goal or perhaps a mandate for Oregon of moving to clean electricity by 2040. So right now, yes, but as as the country and hopefully the world shifts to renewable sources of electricity. Hopefully the emissions from from the electricity will decrease. Why does climate change caused these so called heat dome effects? Yeah. I don't know that climate change per saying is causing the heat domes it.
Rep. Kevin McCarthy Explains That Passing Legislation Isn't Always the Best Thing
"You're in the Senate. You watch this stuff going back and forth. I told you maybe many years ago that a dear friend of mine and a mentor Mind Senator Paul Laxalt on Nevada, Ronald Reagan's Putty. When I was a young man, I visited the Senate. I didn't know Senator Laxalt. He was nice enough to meet me. I mean, I was from Pennsylvania, not Nevada. But I was agreeing with the president or president. To be on the Panama Canal. And I wanted to meet Paul Laxalt because he was taking the lead on this and I sat with him. My father and I did and you must have given us 40 minutes. One of the things he said to me, Mike was every day This body meets, We lose a little bit of our liberty. That is stuck with me for 43 years. It's true, isn't it? Absolutely absolutely true. And it becomes more true mark every single day that passes when we as Americans are asked By the mainstream news media by the entertainment Industry and also by our academic establishment in America work as to accept this deeply flawed assumption. Passing legislation is in the abstract, a good thing, but it's an unmedicated. Good to pass things. We forget the fact that you know, passing something isn't always the right thing. And in fact, Lot of that time. It's just adding to the complexity of the law, which operates as a sort of subsidy. For the already wealthy and well connected. It's actually an impairment to liberty, and that's why the founding fathers made it very difficult to pass federal legislation and limited that further. By limiting the subject matter of what we could even legislate on. That's why I get very frustrated with people saying, Oh, the problem with Washington is that nothing can get done nothing to get past because of the spread lock. Mark. You don't get to be $28 Trillion in debt without a whole lot of

Sailing Successes: Tania Aebi & Sarah Dekker
"Forward slash bedtime. History a big. Thank you to those. Who donated already. Have you ever seen a sailboat? A sailboat is different from a motorized boat because instead of a motor it uses wind pushing the sales to move it across the water sailboats. Have been around for a very long time but people still use sailboats today to sail in places all over the ocean. Some new just for fun others do it as a race. Many world records have been set by people who've sailed boats around the entire world. Tonight we're going to learn about two women who went on at mazing adventures sailboats. Our story begins in Nineteen eighty-four with Tanya Ebi. A young sixteen year old girl. Who was living with her father when he decided to sail his boat all the way across the Atlantic Ocean with Tanya and her siblings even though they knew little about sailing they sailed from England to Spain to Portugal to Morocco. The Canary Islands the Caribbean and back to New York City after finishing high school. Tanya wasn't sure what to do with their life. It was time to go to college but she didn't feel ready for it and didn't know what else to do. Her father gave her two choices he could pay for college or she could use the money to buy a boat and sail around the world. It was a big challenge in. Tanya made the choice to start sailing. She thought she could go on it with her friends and just have a good time. No her father said you have to go on the boat alone and you have to make the voyage by yourself. He knew was a chance for her to grow on her own. So in May nineteen eighty five Tanya and her little black cat named Tarzan set sail from New York in her boat which they named the Varuna. Many people said it was too dangerous for to go but she went anyway. Tanya started the trip thinking should only sell the Bermuda then. Once she was there she headed to the next point. Which was the island of Saint Thomas in the Caribbean as she went she learned more about sailing because she had very little experience before she left. She had lots of quiet time to herself. She said was very good for her. It gave her chance to think about her life to read to play with her cat and to focus on getting to the next point of Edge sometimes. She played her guitar other time. She wrote letters one day. It began to rain and a storm surrounded her boat. We've crashed against the side of the boat and water splashed into it. She was scared and didn't know if she could continue on but she realized the only way she could survive was to keep going and she did just that for two and a half years. Tanya continued her voyage through the Great Barrier Reef Past Australia than up through the Indian Ocean the Mediterranean and finally through the Atlantic Ocean until she returned home to New York Tanya became the first woman in a very young when at that to circle the entire world on a sailboat. When the news found out about her trip people all over the world were talking about her amazing voyage. The president at the time Ronald Reagan sent her a message. Which said you set your energy in youth against an ancient challenge on the ageless sees and you triumphed twenty. Five years later a woman named Laura. Dekker wanted to break. Tania's record and be the youngest woman to circle the globe by boat. She was sixteen years old at the time Laura was born in New Zealand during a seven year sailing trip by her parents. That's right she was born during a sailing trip. The decker family was Dutch which means they were from the Netherlands. Laura spent the first five years of her life at sea and continued sailing with her father afterward. She received her first boat on her sixth birthday. And named it the Guppy. At this time she also learned how to sail the boat on her own. She would often sale by herself with her father following nearby while windsurfing when Laura was eight she received a book for her birthday called the maiden voyage written by Tanya. Happy who we learned about earlier in the story her adventures Got Laura. Thinking about making the same long trip around the earth. During the following years Laura continued to practice. She went on smaller ships by herself and continue to improve her skills see until she felt ready to circumnavigate the globe. This means to go entirely around the earth in two thousand and ten Laura finally set off. She faced many issues with the law which said she shouldn't be able to do it by herself. Many people in her country believed it wasn't safe and she shouldn't do it alone but finally she was given permission to go. She left Gibraltar in August. Two thousand ten then made a few stops until she arrived in the Canary Islands. There she waited for a hurricane to pass then she continued to cross the Atlantic Saint Martins and other islands in the Caribbean during her trip unlike Tanya. She had a gps so her parents and others were able to follow exactly where she was during her voyage. She was also much better prepared than Tanya to make the trip from the Caribbean. She then passed through the Panama Canal then the Galapagos Islands and Tonga Fiji the non to Australia next she passed the Cape of Good Hope in Africa then finally completed trip at Saint Martin. She had traveled sixty four hundred miles in one hundred twenty three days at the age of sixteen during the voyage. Laura wrote about her experiences and the news followed. What she was doing.

I just will sort of wanted to understand what it took to throw yourself into a giant project because my sense was that the energy trends transition was going to require are these big ambitious ideas and projects and you know. I've sort of been reading a bunch of David McCullough box on the building the Brooklyn Bridge and the Panama Canal and I I wondered what was the equivalent equivalent today and I looked around and talk to people and people said Oh you gotta get down to Houston and talk to this guy named skelly because what he's trying to do with his company you know that that's that's the modern equivalent of building the Brooklyn Bridge. This is a big ambitious project and I went down and met him and you know his personal story. Worry sort of takes you from the the beginning of the modern renewable movement here in the United States late nineteen nineties up until today and I thought you know this is a fascinating story so oh I threw myself into transit transmission and how did skelly get so obsessed with transmission himself well you know he
