"The oil and gas industry is losing a friend on January 20th Donald Trump, the departing president gave fossil fuels his loud support. President elect Biden supports efforts against climate change Yet some in the oil and gas industry, you're feeling cautiously optimistic. NPR's Camilla Domino Ski explains why You might have heard that Biden's When could mean the end of the oil industry. President Trump warned it would some climate activists hoped it would and then the final debate. Biden himself said this have a transition from their own ministry. Yes. Oh, transition. It is a big statement, and that would be a big change. Over the last decade. U. S oil and gas production has boomed, The shale revolution turned the United States into the world's top oil producer. Ah, lot of that remarkable growth happened during the Obama administration and Trump promoted the jobs and profits that resulted But emissions from burning oil, gas and coal are the biggest contributors to climate change, which is already starting to have devastating effects around the world. So how could Biden tackle those emissions? Step one might be a ban on new drilling on federal lands on private lands. It's a different story. They do not have the power to just say somebody and South Texas you can of drill anymore. Rene Santos is with S and P. Global Platz. He says that that kind of a band would be significant but not the end of the industry. Biden is also expected to restore some environmental regulations, which again won't eliminate oil and gas. The big question mark is what a climate bill might look like. I personally don't think it's gonna be something radical. Unless you know, the more liberal side on the Democratic Party gets a lot of influence. Which s O? We see right now. It does not appear to be the case. Climate activists and scientists have called for ambitious action that might be impossible to push through Congress if Republicans keep the Senate So for now, this doesn't seem like a doomsday scenario for oil gas. I don't think it's a wholesale assault on the oil industry. It's just not going to be in favor like it was under President Trump. Halima Croft is a managing director at RBC Capital Markets. She says that Biden is serious about climate change, but also doesn't plan to do away with fossil fuels. We actually wrote a note over the summer about the Biden energy plan called hugging the midline, and that's not just because I left Pallotti's, but we really I did see this as an effort to sort of thread the needle. The oil and gas industry sees room for some compromises and negotiations, which might raise the question. What about Biden's big statement about transitioning away from oil and gas? Jen Snyder is the director at in various, which provides data's oil and gas companies, she says that was hardly breaking news to energy insiders. They know that a global transition is happening. A move away from fossil fuels is underway. At the society level regardless of the administration. Biden also said quote we're not getting rid of fossil fuels for a very long time, Snyder argues a president who manages a gradual shift away from oil might actually be better for business. The gut reaction is that this isn't good news for the industry, but we're actually cautiously positive. And politics aside right now, oil producers are facing a more immediate struggle. The Corona virus has caused a big drop in oil demand as the global economy slows down, so the most important thing for their bottom line might be getting the pandemic under control. Mila, Dominic.

"It's morning edition from NPR News. I'm Steve Inskeep. And I'm David Greene. The Trump administration has been trying to bring Israel and Saudi Arabia together in part to counter Iran and this might be happening now, Israeli media says Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met secretly with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in the kingdom, reports say. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also attended the meeting. Saudi Arabia, however, has denied that this meeting took place. So let's try to find out what happened here with NPR international correspondent Daniel Estrin, who is in Jerusalem Day. No good morning. Morning. So did this meeting happen or not? Well. A multiple Israeli media outlets are reporting that it did that Netanyahu flew with his most sods by chief to Saudi Arabia and met with Pompeo and with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. It would be the first known meeting between Israeli and Saudi officials. Pompeo announced that he did have a meeting with the Saudi Crown Prince yesterday in this hi tech city in Saudi Arabia called me. Um, He did not say if Netanyahu was there. But there's an online flight tracker the track to private jet that flew yesterday from Tel Aviv to that city in Saudi Arabia. Flight tracker is always tell the truth at least where the planes were coming. What what air Saudi in Israeli officials saying about whether this happens or not. The Saudi foreign minister is flat out, denying that any Israeli officials were at that meeting. Israeli officials, however, are being coy. They're not denying it. Netanyahu was asked about it, He smirked, and he said he wouldn't comment but that he has worked for many years to try to widen Israel's connections with Arab states to Israeli Cabinet ministers did appear to confirm it. They may have just been Commenting on the news reports, but education minister you have, Garland said on the radio that Netanyahu no traveling to Saudi Arabia was a great achievement, and the Israeli Defense minister, Benny Guns, said it was response irresponsible to publicize the secret meeting. Because Saudi Arabia and Israel have covert ties. Well, if this did happen, how significant is it? It would be very significant, Asai said. This would be the first public known meeting between Israeli and Saudi officials. They have covert ties, but they are known to Have one common goal, which is to act against Iran. They and the Trump administration see Iran is a top threat in the region. Pompeo has been pushing a maximum pressure campaign against Iran. So these leaders could have been coordinating their positions on Iran ahead of a Biden presidency. If this meeting did take place, perhaps coordinating actions against Iran as well. That could make it harder for the bite administration to reach out diplomatically to the Iranians. The backdrop here, of course, is that Biden has said that he might re enter the Iran nuclear deal. And yesterday, Netanyahu gave a speech before this reported trip to Saudi Arabia. And he said We should not revive the Iran nuclear deal. And he said Israel's up opposition to such a deal is what brings Israel and Arab countries close together. So maybe he was kind of hinting there about what he was up to yesterday. All right. Interesting developments. NPR's Daniel Estrin in Jerusalem, Daniel. Thanks as always. You're welcome Demon. On the surface.

"I'm Steve Inskeep, and I'm David Greene. We're covering a humanitarian crisis in Ethiopia that seems to be just getting worse. A conflict there has killed an untold number of people. Tens of thousands of Ethiopians have fled across the border into Sudan, the soul part of a battle over Ethiopia's northwest region of T dry Last night, Ethiopia's prime minister gave regional forces there three days to surrender, saying government forces are ready to launch an assault. MPR's Africa correspondent Ater Peralta joins US from Nairobi Heitor David. Let's start with this threat from the prime minister, that this sounds like something that they could take this to to another level. Yeah, he says that this is the final step in bringing what he calls a treason, this regional government to justice, and for almost three weeks his troops have been moving toward McCalla, which is the capital of this regional state. And he says This is where the leaders of the TPLF, the Ti Guy, People's Liberation Front are hiding. And he is giving them three days to surrender to surrender. He promises a siege and he does say that they will try to minimize damages and civilian casualties. But yesterday on state TV, one of his colonel's the Jensen Guy painted pretty dire picture of the operation. He said. They were going to surround McKinley with tanks and then he gave a warning to civilians. Let's listen. Angry Worrell Oda you Duncan. From now on our fight is with tanks and heavy machine guns. So I would like to ask residents of Makelele to cooperate with federal forces and to keep themselves safe from heavy gunfire. Like the prime minister, he asked civilians to give up members of the TPLF. He said that so far they had been able to distinguish civilians from militants, but that maybe that may no longer be the case. Human Rights Watch said that the contours of this attack as presented by Colonel Vision that they seemed unlawful because they could amount to collective punishment. I mentioned that thousands fleeing. There have been people killed. I mean, to tell us more. About what? You know what this point about the situation on the ground there. I mean, so I think we need to be clear that this conflict has been very difficult to cover because we're doing it. Part blind phone lines and the Internet are often to die in the Ethiopian government has kept journalists including NPR out of the war zone and out of the country. S so we're getting official government narratives and every once in a while the TPLF officials turn on their satellite terminals and send this press releases. But we're hearing the same thing from both sides that they are winning, and we really don't have a way to independently verify troop movements or or fighting or even civilian casualties. Can you just remind us of? What's the at the heart of this conflict like the backdrop? I mean, this region holds that really important place in Ethiopia's modern history, Right? Yeah, I mean, so this is the new government of Ethiopia fighting with the old government. The TPLF toppled a communist government in 1991, and they stayed in power up until two years ago, when Prime Minister Abe document came to power in sideline them. This war started when the TPL left attacked federal military basis. But this city that we're talking about Mikaela. It's the seat of power for the TPL left. But it's also a place that has seen so much fighting and suffering. It was attacked by the communist Dirk In the seventies and eighties, it was bombed again by the Eritreans and nineties. And here they are again facing the prospect of a major military operation. All right, speaking about that humanitarian crisis and conflict in Ethiopia with NPR's Africa correspondent Ater Peralta later thanks a lot. Thank you, David. On the surface.

"I'm Steve Inskeep. And I'm David Greene. We're covering a humanitarian crisis in Ethiopia that seems to be just getting worse Conflict there has killed an untold number of people. Tens of thousands of Ethiopians have fled across the border into Sudan. This is all part of a battle over Ethiopia's northwest region of T dry Last night, Ethiopia's prime minister gave regional forces there three days to surrender, saying government forces are ready to launch an assault. MPR's Africa correspondent Ater Peralta joins US from Nairobi Heitor Hey, David. Let's start with this threat from the prime minister, that this sounds like something that they could take this to to another level. Yeah, he says that this is the final step in bringing what he calls a treason, this regional government to justice, and for almost three weeks his troops have been moving toward McCalla, which is the capital of this regional state. And he says This is where the leaders of the TPL left the ticket. I People's Liberation Front are hiding. And he is giving them three days to surrender to surrender. He promises a siege and he does say that they will try to minimize damages and civilian casualties. But yesterday on state TV, one of his colonel's the Jensen Guy painted pretty dire picture of the operation. He said. They were going to surround McKinley with tanks and then he gave a warning to civilians. Let's listen. Angry Worrell. Olga. Yes, Duncan. From now on our fight is with tanks and heavy machine guns. So I would like to ask residents of Makayla to cooperate with federal forces and to keep themselves safe from heavy gunfire. Like the prime minister, he asked civilians to give up members of the TPLF. He said that so far they have been able to distinguish civilians from militants, but that maybe that may no longer be the case. Human Rights Watch said that the contours of this attack as presented by Colonel Vision that they seemed unlawful because they could amount to collective punishment. Mentioned thousands fleeing. There have been people killed. I mean, tell us more about what you know at this point about the situation on the ground there. I mean, so I think we need to be clear that this conflict has been very difficult to cover because we're doing it. Part blind phone lines and the Internet are often to die in the Ethiopian government has kept journalists including NPR out of the war zone and out of the country. S so we're getting official government narratives and every once in a while the TPLF officials turn on their satellite terminals and send this press releases. But we're hearing the same thing from both sides that they are winning, and we really don't have a way to independently verify troop movements or or fighting or even civilian casualties. Can you just remind us of what's at the heart of this conflict like the backdrop? I mean, this region holds the really important place in Ethiopia's modern history, Right? Yeah, I mean, so this is the new government of Ethiopia fighting with the old government. The TPLF toppled a communist government in 1991, and they stayed in power up until two years ago, when Prime Minister Abe document came to power in sideline them. This war started when the TPL left attacked federal military basis. But this city that we're talking about Mikaela. It's the seat of power for the TPL left. But it's also a place that has seen so much fighting and suffering. It was attacked by the communist Dirk In the seventies and eighties, It was bombed again by the Eritreans and nineties, and here they are again facing the prospect of a major military operation. Right, speaking about that humanitarian crisis and conflict in Ethiopia with NPR's Africa correspondent Ater Peralta later thanks a lot. Thank you, David. On the surface. The oil and gas industry is losing a friend on January 20th Donald Trump, the departing president gave fossil fuels his loud support.

Why The Oil Industry Doesn't Fear Biden

"To learn more on the surface. The oil and gas industry is losing a friend on january twentieth. Donald trump the departing president gave fossil fuels his loud support. President-elect biden supports efforts against climate change yet. Some in the oil and gas industry are feeling cautiously optimistic. Npr's camille mosque. Explains why you might have heard that biden's win could mean the end of the oil industry. President trump warned it. Would some climate activists hoped it would and in the final debate biden himself said this transition from their own industry. Yes it is a big statement and that would be a big change over the last decade. Us oil and gas production has boomed. The shale revolution turned the united states into the world's top oil producer. A lot of that remarkable growth happened. During the obama administration and trump promoted the jobs in prophets that resulted but emissions from burning oil gas and coal are the biggest contributors to climate change. Which is already starting to have devastating effects around the world. So how could biden tackle those emissions step one might be a ban on new drilling on federal lands and private loans. It's a different story. They do not have the power to your sake. Somebody in south texas. You can of drill anymore. Rene santos's with snp global plattsburgh says that that kind of a ban would be significant but not the end of the industry is also expected to restore some environmental regulations. Which again won't eliminate all gas. The big question mark is what a climate bill look like her personal. Don't think it's going to be sensitive radical unless you know the more liberal side. All the democratic party gets a lot of influence which are so we see right now. It does not appear to be the case. Climate activists and scientists have called for ambitious action. That might be impossible to push through congress if republicans keep the senate so for now. This doesn't seem like a doomsday. Scenario for oil gas. I don't think it's a wholesale assault on the oil industry. It's just not going to be in favour like it was under president. Trump halima croft is a managing director at arby's see capital markets. She says the biden is serious about climate change but also doesn't plan to do away with fossil fuels. We actually wrote a note over the summer about the biden. Energy plan called hugging the mid line. Not just because. I left the ladas but we really did see this as an effort to sort of the neo. All the oil and gas industry sees room for some compromises and negotiations which might raise the question. What about biden's big statement about transitioning away from oil and gas jin. Snyder is a director at in virus. Which provides data's oil and gas companies. She says that was hardly breaking news. To insider's they know that a global transition happening a move away from fossil fuels is underway at the society level regardless of the administration biden also said quote. We're not getting rid of fossil fuels for a very long time. Snyder argues a president who manages a gradual shift. Away from oil might actually be better for business. The gut reaction is that this isn't good news for the industry but we're actually cautiously positive and politics aside right now. Oil producers are facing a more immediate struggle. The

"We are one of many states. We feel very connected. To the American spirit that must meet this moment on the needs of our brothers and sisters and other states. And so I mentioned a few weeks back the number of 17 million. That's more specific to your question. Mentioned on a number of occasions, including one state where we had sent, and I think everybody would understand why. And that's Arizona, Mass. Also done in Alaska, Oregon, Washington on DH. We're looking to do more as necessary, but we must always in the threshold. In terms the question we must also as a prime or primer, a cz a foundational principle. Meet the needs within the state on that. Is precisely what we've been doing over the last number weeks as these new supplies have come in, and you saw that in the amount of masks that we have distributed, including, by the way Two months supply into our public school system. We mentioned this last Friday, 35 million masks to the California Grocer's Association, the restaurant association working in partnership.

We're getting these out in real time. So orders are coming in on. We can't get these mass out quickly enough. And so we're putting together a spreadsheet where we think we need to be. Ah, no, I like Mr Yu is we're continuing to procure even more masks. We're not going to sit back statically and allow that stockpile to deplete Eso. We're back to where we were in March. Rene Santos City of 13. Governor. Thank you for taking my question. You know, we are seeing more cases, cases are increasing. But many of those people are testing positive, and some are asymptomatic.

"Hands simple hand hygiene on making sure That all of us are taking very, very seriously this moment. I cannot impress upon people before I open up to questions, the potency of your individual decision making, and I just want to underscore the potency of that. Because we had 111 lives lost in the last reporting period, 111 lives lost again breaking a little bit mythology. Why we're seeing Mortality rates that have declined that masks forgive the pun the reality still of hundreds of people across this country dying on a daily basis. Of this disease 111 here just in the state of California alone, lives lost. Families destroyed. Tort asunder loved ones that Never return. And so I hope all of us are sober about that cognizant of the moment where in the vulnerability that everybody has at this moment This moment will pass. We will get through this. We will become more resilient as a state is a nation would argue globally is a world we will. There's no question in my mind about that. The question is when Andi that determines basis on the termination of how we conduct ourselves. How we behave, goes to question of. How do we safely reopen our schools? And when do we reopen? In many respects that's determined on our behavior on what we do over the course of the next few weeks to mitigate growth and spread and transmission of this disease data. Makes those determinations, data and science make those decisions. And fundamentally, that's what's guided us into that March 19th stayed home to making the first subsets of modifications on May 8th. A zit relates the modifications to the state home on DH now working with these 26 counties to monitor and put that dimmer switch as we refer to it back in play to address and mitigate some of the sectoral guidelines that we put out and address the concerns around the spreads mitigate the growth of the spread of This disease and counties and communities large and small. So we give the unwillingness of today's presentation. But I wanted to give you an assurance that the last four months have been meaningful and intentional. On. We have done enormous amount to prepare on presenting you today. I hope you feel a sense of that preparedness to meet your needs to meet your neighbors needs your community's needs the state needs and to do so head on but again. We need your compliance. We need your support on wearing these masks. And if your senior if you have these pre existing conditions if you are vulnerable to this virus on in that category, we cannot impress upon you, Mohr. Take very, very seriously. You're this moment and do what you can to stay home except for essential purposes and essential needs with that. Course. Now. Happy Dancer questions, right? And these questions coming to the governor here on news 93.1 kfbk remotely. You mentioned that the state is sending asked to other states Can you clarify how many math you guys sense and exactly what Rush hold in terms of, you know, mask capacity that we have in the state that led you to the decision to send more other states hundreds that you saw on that slide. You see the threshold quite In numerical terms quite detailed terms of the detail less capacity. The state has hundreds and hundreds of millions of masks when we made the agreement for a large procurement, which many of you have written about I hope you'll consider the fact that that procurement prevailed in 72 million and 95 Mass. Just one contract wasn't the only contract over 189 million. Of our procedure masks to do that, in a very short period of time. A concentrated period just over 60 day are so period plus or minus. We were able to procure that I don't know another state in the country was able to procure at that scale. Part of the agreement in partnership with our federal partners, particularly FEMA was a consideration of need to those most in need. We did that with ventilators were part of the human condition. We are one of many states. We feel very connected to the American spirit. That must meet this moment on the needs of our brothers and sisters and other states. And so I mentioned a few weeks back the number of 17 million. That's more specific to your question. Mentioned that a number of occasions, including one state where we had sent, I think everybody would understand why, and that's Arizona, Mass. Also done in Alaska or again. Washington Andi.
