There's a push to name and rank heat waves

"Hurricane names have been around for decades the weather channel names, winter storms. Now, one group wants to name heatwaves to boost climate change awareness and help cities prepare for extreme heat events. Kathy Buffet McLeod is director of the Adrian Rockefeller Foundation Resilience Center at the Atlantic. Council it's a nonpartisan group working to foster global solutions. Hi Cathy. Welcome to climate cast. Hi, Paul Thank you I know that your group is working on naming heat waves and discussing that with the world meteorological organization and Noah. How is that going? Well, we're collecting expert opinions and will be forming a scientific and technical panel to ask those critical questions of how do you define a heat wave and how would we get to a naming convention that we could all agree on. We may need to pilot naming heatwaves before we go global, which is our ultimate goal. But the key thing we see the naming initiative as a gateway to other. Interventions that help reduce heat and protect people and ultimately save lives and it's hard to solve a problem that people don't know about and so I we need to communicate and we think that naming a heatwave is one of the very best ways that we can do that in what ways do you think naming heatwaves would change the way we talk about them. What's the payoff there? Well, if you think about Floridians and I was in Florida for thirty plus years, we've built a culture of preparedness and prevention around the impacts of hurricanes, and that name gives it the weight and it lets you know and the media uses it to broadcast how serious this is and you need to act to protect yourself and your loved ones. Heatwaves. Kill more Americans every year than floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, and all other weather disasters. I. Think a lot of people are surprised by that. How can cities mitigate the threats posed by heat waves? Well, cities are extra vulnerable because our cities are largely built with asphalt and materials that absorb heat an emanate, the heat at night, and so the urban heat island effect is making cities even hotter. And sometimes as much as fifteen seventeen degrees hotter and a lot of those solutions are natural solutions like planting urban forests and those are known to to cool and absorb pollution. But the naming of the heat waves is the gateway as I said to get out the door and attract the attention. It's necessary to how dangerous this risk is. I can see the benefits and drawbacks to naming. Yet another weather phenomenon right I mean we name hurricanes the weather channel names winter storms could naming heatwaves contribute to an overload on whether messaging well, our intent is to answer that question with the very best experts at the table before we proceed and so we all share the goal of communicating this risk and ultimately protecting people and saving lives and so will get to that answer. And certainly, be asking those hard questions of does this do what we wanted to do, and where's the evidence base to support that, and so I'm GonNa come back to you Paul with an answer to your question. After we get to work Kathy, buff men McLeod with the Atlantic Council thanks so much for sharing your perspective on climate cast today. Thank you very much for having me.

Coronavirus is a totally different disaster for philanthropies to handle

"Darren Walker. Thank you very much for coming back to the PODCAST. I'm happy to back on them. So you're every year you send out a New Year's letter in this in this year's letter was entitled how we move forward during the year ahead and in it you decry how we're losing ground on a whole host of issues that democratic values and institutions remain in retreat as a quote from the letter. You also say in the letter quote. This is a time to step up not check out a time to reenlist. Re-engage and reconnect. And you ask a question that is pretty remarkable given where we are right now you wrote quote what new crisis needs to befall us before we together are spur to collective action is covert nineteen that new crisis that will spur collective action. I hope it is. I hope that out of this horrific calamity. We can emerge a stronger nation. A more empathetic people a society where we realize that we have a shared destiny that we realized that our future is one future a future that is dependent on our willingness to act as one our willingness to engage as one and our belief in the idea of equal status them. You know you have been either in your role at Ford or your previous role when you're at The Rockefeller Foundation. You've been a part of many calamities. Both Mother Nature created and manmade I seem to remember there was Detroit bankruptcy there was a new orleans rebuilding after Katrina up. Have you seen anything like this? That we're going through right now. There has never been anything like this virus to hit the world. There's never been a a calamity of this scale and scope and intensity and every crisis I've been involved in where there's been some terrible act of God or whatever you WanNa call it In in it usually place based in some part of the world there is some terrible thing ebola or so Nami in Southeast Asia and the rest of the world can rush to help because the rest of the world is stable prosperous and doing very well generally speaking and this case the entire planet is on edge the entire globe is impacted by this Kobe. Nineteen hours there is no place on earth where one can seek refuge from this and believe that you won't be impacted and so the question for us is. How do we respond in a circumstance that truly does require that we build a consensus that Necessitates a global response not just a response at the country level and particularly response that recognizes that the inequality that we see in the world and in our society will be exacerbated by this corona virus crisis. If we don't as we design how we get out of this and we work through this we are paying attention to the inequality that existed before this virus hit us. We're going to actually make things worse for the very people who are most vulnerable and most at risk. I WANNA get into a little bit deeper into that in a moment but as president of the Ford Foundation. Correct me if I'm if my memory is failing me here but you have a major presence in India and just recently. A India went on a national lockdown. We're talking about one point. Something Billion People on what? How does that impact the work? That Ford does while in a country like India. Our work is focused on civil society and strengthening civil society supporting the rights of women and Dulles Indigenous People until those communities are absolutely impacted because these lockdowns basically impact their ability to earn a living. And most of these folks earn a living As garbage pickers as day laborers people living off of cash and so they are absolutely impacted but on the other hand it's important that India as a nation have a uniform standard way of approaching. This and I think the prime minister has done that. Interestingly we also have an office in Beijing so our China office closed in January as a result of the virus hitting Beijing where we have an office and Within days our office closed. What's very interesting? Is that this week. Our office in Beijing opened. And so we've got a reopening of an office and the a ten offices of Ford in other parts of the world are all closed now so we have this almost this this reversal and so in some ways. What we've seen in our office in Beijing May Portend Our future in that. That office was closed for ten weeks before was able to be reopened and we'll see if We follow a similar pattern here in the US. So let's dive into what you said Just a moment ago about you know how we design the response to Covet. Nineteen will determine whether the societal issues that countries were dealing with before. Kovac's nineteen whether they're exacerbated and I don't mean this as as a partisan question but it is it is a question that has been lurking in my mind. I sort of troubled. By the fact that the United States is not in the forefront of leading in terms of responding to cope with nineteen can can the United States can nations get past this without concerted driven fact based Response from leadership leadership is essential here and the importance of leadership has never been more elevated And felt at at at at anytime in my lifetime than this moment. We're in most certainly the work of global organizations like the WHO is essential and working with them on global strategies and global approaches. Is the only way we're going to actually Get on the other side. If you will I I I don't think it's a secret to say that the US has not sought leadership in many global fora the traditional Seats at the head of the table that we assumed and that we championed global ideas The this is not a part of who we are today in terms of and I think something we have to really consider Do we want the United States to be a a global leader a global organizer a global. Convener I believe we do. I believe it is in our national interest for the US to be engaged in the world and to set a standard and an example of excellence of Democratic Participation Of OF COLLEAGUE SHIP.

Whats behind Jeff Bezos $10 billion climate plan?

"Jeff as pledges ten billion dollars toward climate solutions. We have questions from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying digital economy. I'm Ali would. We don't have many details yet on the basis Earth Fund the ten billion dollars that Jeff Bezos pledged last week to address climate change but it is by far the largest philanthropic commitment that isn't from government and other investors in climate tech and solutions will tell you that while we need. Climate policies will and unity. We also need a whole lot of money. Jayco is managing director of the private equity firm. The Light Smith Group which focuses on adaptation technology and. I asked him where this ten billion dollars fits in the landscape of climate investment. Yeah so ten. Billion IS A big number. How you apply. Ten billion can dramatically change the scale capital. That actually is moved As a result. So there's a few initiatives like the Rockefeller Foundation's and Macarthur Foundation's focus on something. Catalytic capital where small amounts of concessional investment or even grant funding Can reduce the potential or perceived risk for commercial investors and encourage them in much larger scale to come in two different new investment strategies. They're this announcement was met with a lot of skepticism. And a lot of you know sort of Monday morning quarterbacking other things that Jeff bezos could do or should be doing. Do you think that's fair? I'm an all of kind of guy and so I think right now. If you really take the climate change problem seriously and I think we all should we face an enormous and potentially existential challenge to The way that life Operates here so I applaud this commitment and the scale of it is something is designed to signal that kind of seriousness. Would I think would be great? Would be to use it not simply just to double down on everything that we have now but to be thoughtful about how could mobilize even more funding. How could actually support targeted kinds of innovation? How could actually particularly support? I think The disadvantaged populations in developing countries out to. They're really going to be to the chin. Here I WANNA ask you about priority setting. What I'm curious about is whether this amount of money by it's sort of Sheer Hampton weight has the potential to create almost like a Softbank Effects. And so what? If as I said I'm going to use this fund for cricket meal would then a bunch of other things get neglected and cricket meal would take off if I could wave a magic one with ten billion? I would say that it should be done over a number of different years and then you should pick a variety of strategies where maybe half of it you double down on everything. That's working best right now just accelerated and then I would take a bunch of it and try to think about exactly what you're talking about. Which are are there one or two really important? Longshot ideas or longshot areas or areas of really important focus where this could have a dramatically important effect. Jayco is managing director of the Private Equity Investment Firm. The Light Smith Group BEZOS and Amazon. Haven't given any more information about how the Earth Fund will work but Bazo said on Instagram. That he expects to start making donations this

"Arizona to hear my interview with Raj Shah from the Rockefeller Foundation. Brief history lesson a funny thing has happened in the board of philanthropy over last one hundred years when John Rockefeller set out to create the Rockefeller Foundation sounds like a pretty good thing. A lot of people actually thought is idea with pretty bad. A great president with the name of teddy teddy Roosevelt said something along, the lines of no amounts of charity with a fortune can make up for the misconduct required to achieve the fortune hundred years later, we're sort of getting have that same conversation. People are beginning to criticize philanthropy gifts because it might reflect some misdeeds needed to make that money. And the guy who's in, in the hot seat today has to kind of manage that conversation. He happens to represent the Rockefeller Foundation. Rod shop. We start with history. Now we're gonna do some math. Okay. Calculators out the US last year Americans gave four hundred billion dollars to charity at the same time, there's, there's more private foundations than ever probably more press releases than ever about good work, people are doing. American inequality. Forty year high, you can walk around New York, San Francisco see that something's wrong. What's not connecting? Well, I thanks for having me teddy. I'm excited to be here because we're very committed to the idea that the tech sector can do a tremendous amount more to lift people up who are locked out of prosperity and opportunity. The premise of your question is absolutely right. We live in extremely unequal, and frankly, inequitable times if you were born in the fifties and sixties in America, there was a ninety plus in fact, unless your last name was Rockefeller. There was.

"Out of hundreds of ideas that came out of the community, and then those were sort of vetted, and, and prioritized until we got down to forty four so the forty four that are in the strategy are sort of the ones that really rose up and seized the community imagination about how can local government really help when we have federal government, pulling back and not focusing on climate and not protecting us. How do we have local government step up? And these are the forty four ways that they. How did you give me an example, how this community group was facilitated because I I'm aware of bringing people together and it was a facilitated event exercise. People would idee eight come up with what was the process by which you. So we did it a couple of different ways. I mean, I think what we try to do is get outside of the normal, you know, let's have a public meeting, let's get some, you know, you know, boards up and put stickies on it. The first one we did is we use technology. There's a thing called many meter. It's kind of like live, sift, which is a local product here, and essentially, you can have people on their smartphones, and they can rank stuff suggest stuff. It's on a live screen, it's happening. So we did essentially live polling neighborhood, boards and places, and really got people to tell us on their phone. What they thought and prioritize things and rank them up. So we used that we also used a game. We actually developed a whole game around climate action planning, and that worked out. Really, well too. So we basically had groups of people decide which of the things that they would do. I so whether it's transform their transportation, get into an electric car or hybrid or whether they would ride a bike or whether they'd put solar panels on their home. What's the first things that they would do? And then we got a sense of where the priorities are in the community. And so, what are the implementations that we would have to do at the city and county to make sure they're able to do those actions? So we, we actually had games with timing and people had to place tiles on, on a board. So we've been trying different stuff. I think it's fine. We get feedback some people, you know, they like the more serious way. And so we can accommodate that. But now, some people want to express themselves in other ways, we tried to incorporate that, now you said that you went to neighborhood board, meetings, what were generally the composition of the communities that you would bring in for some of these facilitated meetings. We're also was different. I mean when you go to neighborhood board you're going to get, whoever the community is that shows up there. You know, we did a ton of rotaries. We did a ton of outreach. The different business affinity groups, but we wanted to do as we wanted to get a good mix. And so, in the end, we came up with, you know, about a quarter business a quarter, nonprofit a quarter government, and then a quarter of folks that were retired and students, and that sort of thing we think that was pretty reflective of the population. We did a lot random outreach, and we got a lot of random responses, but then they'll started to get honed. And, you know, the one thing that would that the Rockefeller Foundation that helps support this work they've worked in a hundred cities around the globe..

"But in order to purchase the virus, you need to be a member of a research facility or a nonprofit, which only further supports the Rockefeller foundation's claim that. Their ownership of the bias is only for scientific research purposes. But if they admit they discovered the virus and are willing to sell it to anyone with research, credentials. Who's to say the Rockefeller family itself wasn't behind the outbreak on. They clearly have the means to unleash Zeke virus into the world, and they might have the motivation as well. Either to further their secret depopulation agenda or to make money off the samples. They're selling through the ATC, but there's no evidence to twenty sixteen. Zeke outbreak was anything more than a tragic coincidence, officially the outbreaks started with a tourist contracting, the illness in French Polynesia, and then traveling to Brazil, where they were bitten by a mosquito, which then bit more people, and transmitted the virus from their more importantly, if the Zeke of virus were part of a depopulation agenda. It wouldn't be a smart move as Eka rarely kills anyone in facts. In that case, let's turn our focus back to a more fatal disease. Cancer. If you believe in the Rockefeller, depopulation agenda, this conspiracy makes perfect sense, cancer kills about twenty thousand people per day worldwide rocking up almost eight million deaths per year and the easiest way to decimate the world population is by simply sitting back and letting cancer run its course, of course, this theory relies on the assumption that a cure for cancer exists, in the Rockefellers have enough money to pressure, the FDA, and big pharma into keeping it off the market as we just discussed in theory. Number one, it's highly unlikely that anyone Rockefeller or not would be able to coerce the entire global medical community into high Shing up, something so groundbreaking and so potentially profitable. But the Rockefellers have something more than money if the new world order is really in the works, they could bribe scientist and big pharma executives with the promise of power in the new globe. Government or with the threat of imminent death, if they don't pay this is one of those claims it's impossible to prove or disprove, but at the root of it, there's absolutely no evidence to support the idea that cure for cancer exists, or that a shadowy cabal is threatening global on college. Researchers into silence. There are claims from conspiracy, theorists that no Rockefeller has ever died of cancer, given the size of the family that does seem strange, but the act of not dying of cancer isn't enough evidence to prove that the Rockefellers are hoarding the cure as an extremely wealthy and powerful family..
