Well let's let's put that in context a little bit. It is February so it is summer in Ourika so you do expect a little bit of melt. But they're saying they're messy little bit or riddle bit inch of melt per day. That's a lot of it. Not that's the opposite of little bit.

Is in they grill this corn on the cob and they put all these different cheeses on it And then they serve it to you under the tiny six little tiny ears little tiny tics and the taste Zack Is with me And he looks at that and, he goes. Out looks, terrible I said this. Is just delicious this is this is why I come down here to eat here and. Have this corn plus everything else is delicious in the fries and he's like. Loving the fries he just thinks surprise are outrageous and they are They're really good. If they could, figure out a. Way to take the carbohydrates out of this rise it'd. Be perfect so finally he sees meeting this. Corny says all, right I want to bite I grabbed the. Second year corn and I handed, to sit here have a bite of this and he.

Bad news I said what, he goes well the. Bad news is you're not getting your, corn back the. Good news is this the best tasting thing. I've ever had. I said. Isn't it, there, so he had, the second. Year corn I only had. One but we have the fries and all the other stuff, I had. A chicken, sandwich which was outrageously. Wonderful he had a burger and he's like love and progress I gotta have a bite. To your burger it was delicious scrumptious delicious you know we it was really. Really good we had a late lunch we ate About. Three o'clock is we'd, gone to Assad farm and then we'd gone down to. Fort Myers and we looked, at a law looked. At some plants and and you know, that was good. Then we went there and ate so all. Week he's saying. How long. Would it, take, us to drive, down to. Fort Myers to that restaurant. From what as a you know i keep saying that but it's a two hour drive there to eat lunch and i don't know it's nice but it's not worth the two hour drive although i am considering i went down there with my ex wife my ex wife my second wife diane and i went down there that's how i found the place her and i found the place a couple of months ago i was down there looking at some property and we just went in there and eight and i had the corn on the cob then it was delicious and i keep saying to her is we go out and eat once in a while a couple once or twice a week we'll go out and eat and she'll say where you wanna go is how long it's gonna take us to get the fort myers that's like the big joke well now it's the big joke was back how long is it gonna take down there So if you're? Ever in Fort Myers Don't, ask me directions 'cause I'm you know I'm just not as good as I used to be head out like you're going to pine island on pine island road and on the, left, hand side of the road about oh I'd say a mile and a half before, you get to burnt burnt oak road which. Is a main road go north on but before you get to that before you get out to the island on, the left hand side is the hurricane and it's just. Really cool and the. Food is delicious I highly recommend, it so if you go down there tell them that. You know the garden geek sent you And they'll say who I was is wanted in there and sat down wearing my polo shirt and my, shorts and flip flops so they'll, know who I am but I've been. A couple of times I. Will, definitely. Go back. Definitely will, I definitely but anyway what I went down there and look at what I went down there and looked at was a beautiful lawn that had been, affected Bye Risa Tonia, which is Brown patch fungus and they. Had it bad I mean. They, really. Really really. Had it, bad and they had a company that had been spraying fungicides on it on a regular basis trying to get it onto control and They asked me I guess someone. Told them, they're always, going, to have that area, there are always going to be dealing with it and that area unless they did something radical and so they somebody down there Has used to listen to, my, show. Many many years ago. Many I was, on a radio station down there and in Punta Gorda is a. Matter of fact w CCF and listen to my show on on WBZ and at that time. Gosh twenty over twenty years ago Twenty, two twenty three years ago There, was a product called bio side which is the only product that I ever knew that totally, killed and eliminated Brown patch fungus It it was called bio side It, was manufactured somewhere in central Florida. And I got introduced to it I went to a seminar and somebody had the stuff and they said it was, great and, we tried it on you know we tried it. On fungus and it was incredible it just did a marvelous job and, it was the only thing well then I, found out what was in it. And it kind of scared me and by the, way the product is now gone but what one of the things that was in it was. Believe it or not formaldehyde It. Was a stabilized form of formaldehyde because formaldehyde is, not stable informality hide is very toxic but the interesting thing about. The for melda hide is once it went into the soil it turned into a gas which destroyed, the fungus and then it just went away so it didn't have, any lasting effects except I didn't want to. Be working with formaldehyde and I didn't, want it that time I didn't. Want my employees I had four employees were out spraying lawns and fertilizing lots I didn't want them working with it, so I, had it and if we had along with Brown. Patch fungus I would not ask an employee to go out and do, it I would go out and do it, myself in a small truck with. The spray tank on it and I would mix, some stuff and I would use it well then it went off the market just disappeared And everybody's been trying to bring it back, and somebody brought it back as a nutrient The reason I was called down to look at this fungus and I said? Is there, a, possible way we can. Just by formaldehyde and put it in the soil I said no because formaldehyde is unstable these, people had a way of stable in the formaldehyde. If you do it without doing that you could kill them on all kinds. Of things so the next thing that they're going to do is you're, gonna dig down they're going to take out a foot and a half of the soil put, a new style and have.

"So let's talk about the ice sheets many of them are melting and that's affecting sea levels causing them to rise and that's affecting climate change in ocean levels so let's start with the ice sheets you say that there's much more melting in the arctic than in aunt arctic away is that well the a lot of the the heat from the warming of the earth is sort of concentrating itself up in the in the north in the arctic right now and that's the meal fast is melting placed uh on the plant right now and and when we think about sea level rise you know there's a number of factors thermal expansion of the ocean the melting of glaciers on land beat of landbased glaciers that around the world but has really when it comes down to a routes really all about greenland and antarctica those are the only to sort of big ice cubes on the playa that if they when they go that's big trouble so what we've seen mostly right now is a lot of surface melting up in greenland in that's been a big cause for concern we've seen in two thousand twelve there is a record ice melt up there and you know the we're seeing acceleration of the glaciers in in greenland but i statistics is is very complex and scientists up until recently sort of had this idea they could calculate how fast a big ice sheet like lincoln melt and have a good idea of what sea level rise rates might be like in the future but recently a lot of attention is being focused in west antarctica especially this a couple of glaciers they're called thwaites and pine island glacier where the real problem is that you have a warming ocean ocean absorbs a lot of the heat of as the atmosphere warms and their warming ocean is getting underneath the ice sheets there and that can cause big problems because you have melting from below and one of the things that scientists are figuring out is that you can calculate two pretty good degree how fast in ice sheet will melt.

"Gigantic chunk of ice about the size of delaware that broke off and now just a few days ago we had yet another piece of ice from the south pole that broke off this time it was four times the size of manhattan now you realize that manhattan is roughly twenty miles long so imagine four times the size of manhattan breaking off the pine island glacier in fact the pine island glacier is cracking up faster than almost any other glacier in the south pole not to mention this but we also have a mystery concern the gradual breakup of the south pole this mr he is a gigantic hole a gigantic whole has forum in the weddell sea and nobody knows what causes this whole this whole is not small is the size of south carolina i repeat there is a mysterious hole that just opentop in in the weddell sea and it's a size of south carolina and unfortunately we are clueless to explain why this gigantic hole simply opened up just recently now of course the likely suspect could be global warming but it turns out that a similar whole opened up back in the 1970s and so we think it may be periodic or it may not it may have something to do with global warming or it may not but it is a gigantic whole what.
