"There's a lot we still don't know about the transmission of coronavirus how long does it live outside the body is it airborne there's new evidence that it can live on some surfaces for up to three days the which surfaces here's NPR's Allison Aubrey the new study looked at the novel coronavirus in a laboratory setting and found the virus can survive up to seventy two hours on the stainless steel and plastic surfaces and on cardboard up to twenty four hours Jamie Lloyd Smith of UCLA is one of the authors we're talking about potentially days of infectivity on some of these services this study gives a range of possible survival times but keep in mind in a lab all the conditions are stable in the real world factors such as sunlight can kill off viruses faster Lloyd Smith collaborated with scientists at the rocky mountain laboratories a federal lab to do a series of experiments they picked up bits of virus from services that have been contaminated they then put the virus in cell cultures to test whether it was still infectious they also tested how long the virus remain viable in the air what these experiments showed that the virus can remain viable floating in the air for some number of hours the experiments went out to three hours and you know there were still viable virus was present Lloyd Smith says this experiment definitely does not prove that people have been infected this way by particles of virus that float in the air what scientists call errors allies transmission he says what remains unknown is what dose is needed to infect someone there a lot of things we don't know so we do not yet know how many viral particles need to get into somebody's there way to initiate an infection in all these tests and the new coronavirus tends to behave a lot like an older one sars that led to an outbreak in two thousand three in fact a new study shows both viruses remain viable about the same amount of time but that leads to an important question why has this virus spread much more widely Lloyd Smith says that there could be multiple reasons things like the apparent ability of this novel virus to be transmitted instead by people who are showing severe symptoms or may not be showing symptoms at all which makes this virus much harder to contain and given all this the advice that we've been hearing for weeks now remains the same wash your hands that's still the best way to protect

Breaking the wrong kinds of records: 2019 state of climate report

"Several climate records were broken in two thousand nineteen across the world including unprecedented temperature highs and extreme weather events ahead of the launch of the World Meteorological Organization's flagship report. Wmo's statement on the state of the global climate in two thousand and nineteen the agency. Secretary-general Patera tell us. Sat Down with Ben Maller from you and news and started by outlining some of the main points from the study. For example we have Highest concentration of carbon dioxide in past three million years and the measurement survey showing that last year. We we again. Having Having Higher Gordon Thracians from carbon dioxide than the previous year. Shame is happening for for me. Which is the second most important greenhouse gas and we have seen the warming of the temperature continued and we have broken several. Reads NOT AMBULATORY COHORTS IN AUSTRALIA? In several West European countries and also elsewhere last year was the warmest euro regard since eighteen fifty. Then we have seen we have stored more than ninety percent of the extra heat. The Ocean send an awesome. Seawater is Is Record warm because of that? And that's giving more. Nfc for the tropical tropical storms sea level rise continues and it has been boosting so we have seen an increase in the sea level rise also also last last year the glacier's melting worldwide. And we have especially been melting the glacier greenland which is contributing to sea level rise and and also the melting. Glaciers are melting and. That's bad news when it comes to Freshwater released to the major rivers Sir in the world come having written from Malaya's absurd and Ian tweets and rocky mountain so that's bad news for the freshwater resources for agriculture and for human beings and industry so all in all climate saints continues and we have also seen a record breaking forest fires like in Australia. It's very had before that record breaking temperatures and android and we have seen also severe drought in in Mexico Caribbean in some parts of Europe and also Southam South African countries. So all in all records have been broken. Bad died records. How confident are you that governments around the world have really caught onto the seriousness of this message so that they could take the right action for sake of the people around the world? I think that the way honest is Is higher than ever but the accent is sir very much missing. Countries made their parish blitzes and to fifteen and that would mean three degrees warming story beyond the parish. One point five two degrees and and and so far. The countries haven't been fulfilling their research glitzy so severe not moving towards one point five to decrease which is the Paris limits north towards three degrees with with the blitzes. The country's made we are moving the worst four to five degrees by the end of the sensory. They're clearly a need for for higher ambition level of if we are serious with climate mitigation. There is a target for all Governments. All the people everybody concerned to try and turn the situation around by the year twenty fifty which is the deadline for that shipment of the sustainable development goals. Is that still realistic with all? These bad records be have also seen but it the development there for example private sector is more and more interested in in in being part of the solution and we have also studying finance sector moving their investments from fossil business to watch the watch more sustainable business and and also the you would movement is putting pressure on governments and and people all around the world. They understand that this is this is perhaps the number one problem that we the mankind is facing today so there are also plenty of good science that the that the that the we have started moving in the right direction actually in the developed countries Last year their missions dropping habits. It's good news. Despite the economic was Was growing and we have been able to solve that you can eat that economic growth from from Damian growth. The but the bad news is that in in the rest of the world missions growing last year. And that's one of the one of the Tennessee so to solve this problem. We have to have all of the countries onboard compare this year to the previously. What would you say in himself? The preparedness by everyone every government every megyn institution to tackle extreme. What within this year so my organization's very much supporting our members to improve their early warning capacity and this kind of early warning of of drought Flooding storm sewer and record temperatures. That's a very powerful way to adapt to climate says this negative trend in climate. We'll continue for the coming decade caged anyhow which means growing out of weather related disasters and and and we have to be prepared for that. And we have to invest in early warning services and it's important to invest also on impact based forecasting for example when when cyclone hitting Mozambique get amid series was able to forecast meteorologist parameters well but impacts of those understood and that's why the disaster was a having lots of casualties and lots of economic losses because the authorities didn't act and the impact was understood so from W. Most side We're happy to help. The country's built their impact based early warning. Service kept musty. Doubly from your stigma just now is having better capacity to alert people in better time to prepare for any disasters. That come is that correct. So we are we are. We are member based organization. We have another nine hundred thousand members of our member. Member hasn't National Meteorology Service and we are very much set. Transform forming the know how from our more developed members are less developed members and we are working together with the financial institutions like World Bank cleaned climate fund and UNDP target more resources for for this kind of capacity development. So the situation is improving all the time but but we still have plenty of countries about half of our member. Countries could improve their performance. Is that too was making Elliot Warning Betta to save lives to save situations to prepare people better. How good is the early warning system improvement over the last year? So we have seen a gradual improvement. That's one of the one of the issues most dealing dealing with and what we've able to forecast the one day before In in the past we can now forecast it even five days in advance and and and countries are much better prepared even in developing countries. We have seen a major major improvement but we are not. We haven't been able to reach the optimization yet. There shouldn't further investments needed by the donors and also by individual governments. And that's very powerful way to adapt and protect economists and and people from the impacts of climate says all of us anywhere around the world. Everybody is preoccupied with the outbreak of Kobe. Nineteen which is leading to significant downturn in economic activity around the world in the same way those trillion fire saw a rise in co two emissions. Is there any silver lining in the way that the world is trying to handle of igniting in the form of any spin offs in terms of lower emissions during this period? Of course Would be very much concern of the casualties that we ever had because of this virus and the story is not over yet so it may have a negative impact on on the global economy. Which is bad news and and we have already seen has having an impact on the on the equality in China for example once they have been closing closing some parts of the country and And there's been less less traffic and less industrial production but the but this is not good news. So all in all. Be Concerned of this Of the casualties related these vitals. And and have you hoped at these outbreak We will be solved and and and we can go back to normal life and keep in mind that the that we still have the major climate. The problem to be solved. So these these spite of these fighters it'll keep continue based for mitigation of climate change.

Lyme Disease and Other Tick Borne Illnesses with Dr. Sean Beckmann

"They we are talking about a subject that affects a lot of people and that is lime disease and we have assistant professor of biology. Dr Shawn Beckmann back on the show with us and if you remember he spoke with us in a previous episode about the corona virus. And today Dr. Beckmann is going to share some insights about lyme disease. Dr Beckmann can you tell me a little bit about yourself and watch you do sure? So I'm a biologist down here at Stetson University in Land Florida My obviously my main focus down here is teaching. But my research focuses on a tick-borne hagins so there are these various different bacteria or viruses that are transmitted by ticks. People we know about things like lyme disease for example And my main interest is in. Where did these come from? What are the organisms that carry these Different pathogens that ultimately Gets THEM FROM IT? And the tick can transmit them on from there. Ah Cry well we had you on before talking about the corona virus. And you mentioned you know what you do at your work and I thought Oh. Wow I know a lot of people who are going to want to ask you questions about tick borne diseases in boy was I right so in my group hope lively I ask you know who who has a question for Dr Beckmann and I was overwhelmed with all the questions they had for you so I'm just going to start at the top and we'll try to see how many questions we can get through So the first question People WanNa know is where do people get lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever? Okay so we've got a kind of two different sides of the same coin here. Both lining disease and rocky mountain spotted. Fever are bacterial diseases They're both caused by bacterial pathogens. And they're both spread by tics. But we get different ticks. That spread each kitties. So lime disease. Which is what. My research primarily focuses on is caused by the Bacteria Brilliant Bergdorf Ri- which is a bacteria that is transmitted in the eastern United States by the black legged tick and then out west. There's a related take on the other side of the rockies that can transmit it But that bacteria gets basically picked up by the tick from a rodent that it feeds on the carries that particular bacteria so not all rodents have disease in the rodents can't transmit the disease to people. It has to be transmitted by a tick. The tickle feed on one of these rodents we call it a resume war pick it up and then the tick carries that bacteria throughout its life and so whatever it bites in the future it could potentially transmit it to it can transmit it to another rodent and make another reservoir. It can transmit it to a dog it could transmit it to a deer or it could transmit it to a person potentially and that's where people get it from us from a tick. It's previously gotten infected by it. They pick it up when that tick them invites them in the case of lyme. That's the for the most part in the United States. We talk about the black legged tick that can do that. In the case of Rocky Mountain spotted fever that's transmitted by group of kicks called the dog ticks. So you have the American dog tick at the Brown dog tick and then the rocky mountain tick also are all capable of transmitting. That and that belongs to a different group of bacteria called the Recap Zia's And so we're we're catchy. I 'cause why not have a crazy name is that bacteria and that's transmitted by like I said a totally different group protects. Wow Okay so the tick transmits it to a rodent now if the a rodent another tip by sat rodent it it can get the bacteria from that rodent so ultimately to talk a little bit about. I guess the the kind of cycle we call this. The enzootic cycle the cycle within animals And so you imagine a situation where you've got a road that carries this bacteria and by and large the rodent is not affected by. They are kind of the incubator for it. Which is why we call them. The reservoir if a tick bites that rodent the tick then picks up that bacteria it the ticks on affected by the TIG carries it it gets into the gut of the tech and then ultimately it moves from the gut of take into the salivary. Glands of the tech takes only feed a couple of times in their life once during their first life stage there amid stage once during the second stage they're laurel life stage and once during their adult stage so if a tick nymph bites an infected rodent. Yeah it picks up that bacteria then when it goes to beat again as a larva feeds on another rodent. It's going to create another reservoir. It's GonNa create another road at now. Has that bacteria if Instead by say a dog it could transmit it to a dog. If bites a person it can transmit it to a person and so there's really the first two life stages it could pick up the bacteria and both of those life stages it can transmit it in any life stage later where it's after it's become infected so let's take feeds three times in its life and the first time it picks up the bacteria now it's got two opportunities to spread it if a tick picks it up in a second life stage. It's only got one opportunity. Spread it if it picks it up in its third lifestyle. Jet May be infected. But it's never going to spread it to anything I see so can a dog be a reservoir for the tick dogs and Dogs Endear and humans for that matter or what we call dead end hosts so what that means is we can get infected by the bacteria but it can't be transmitted from us to take to go to something else. Our biology doesn't work really well with it from a transmission perspective. On fortunately for us we are the organisms that can become a affected by that pathogen. So where's the rodents will get the bacteria and they live happy normal lives as far as we know and every research study that has looked at this as an experiment that has looked at this in rodents when they get lime or the bacteria that causes lyme they may get a little inflammation for a little while and then it goes away and they live normally with the bacteria the bacteria evade immune system and just lived normally in there but when it gets into a dog or a deer or a human doesn't do that with our immune systems will initially eventually recognize it would become symptomatic and we get an illness as a result of it And WanNa talk more about that later but Can you be infected by these ticks anywhere or just in these particular areas geographically? Great question and it's a question that leads to a lot of confusion because is particularly at all focus on line because that that is my area of expertise. I know about the others. But that's my primary area when we think of line we think of one if not two places in the US we think of the northeastern United States your your mid Atlantic and northeastern states. I A lime disease is named after a lyme Connecticut where it was I found. That's where we find a lot of it. We also get a big focus of lime in the upper mid Western. Us particularly Wisconsin and Minnesota but lime is found in all fifty states. It has been diagnosed in all fifty states including Hawaii and Alaska. Now does that mean. There's lots of Lyme disease in Alaska. Probably not there's probably not in Hawaii either. Those are probably people that went somewhere else. Acquired it and then went home and got diagnosed with it at home. But within the contiguous United States within the forty eight states Within the United States proper lime has been identified in all of them identified all of them on a regular basis. Even if it's at a low incidence so you don't have to be bitten by a tick in New York for example to get lime disease if you buy tick in Florida and that kick is carrying brilliant door fry. It has a potential to pass it to you and so even though there's areas in the US really prevalent it is found throughout the entire.

The Drug Lobby's Waning Influence in Washington

The Drug Lobby's Waning Influence in Washington

"The drug industry has long been a major player in Washington politics. The sector spent nearly three hundred million dollars on lobbying last year more than any other industry but our team found that the influence of the drug lobby is changing as Republicans and Democrats joined together to combat rising drug prices that marks a shift as the GOP moves away from its longtime ally. So how will this influence drug policy coming out of Washington joining me now is Wall Street Journal? Investigative reporter Brody mullins so brody attract a big change in Washington and that is the waning power of the drug lobby. Due in large part to bipartisan efforts to drive down drug prices and this marks a big change especially for Republicans who are now working against their longtime allies. What's behind that shift here? You know we found out there was a whole bunch of reasons for the shift of the biggest is that members of Congress for the most part. Do what their constituents want in order to get reelected and constituents regular Americans around the country have a big problem with increasing costs of prescription drugs at the pharmacy. So many people complaining about these costs. That Republicans who normally will side with the industry and normally don't WANNA use the government to way into the private sector are starting to change their minds a little bit sort of with an eye to the election in trying to take steps to use the government to keep drug prices down for their constituents and perhaps a rare point of agreement between the two. President Trump and house speaker. Nancy Pelosi have both criticized the power of the drug lobby although course they have different ideas on how to actually lower drug costs yeah. It's pretty unbelievable. Obviously if you follow the media you know that Donald Trump and Nancy Pelosi are not close at all but here. They're pretty close to integrate. They both have been attacking the drug industry. They both been attacking Pharma. They believe attacking the lobby- lobbyists for drug industry but they both want the same thing which is to lower drug prices for consumers. Maybe for different reasons but either way they both have proposals to rein in rising drug costs again. They have different proposals but they both have the same goal at the same time. The drug lobby still donates a significant amount of money to lawmakers. So how are we seeing? This shift. Impacting the policy coming out of Washington. We don't know yet. What the story identifies is that there has been a shift in the strength or the influence of the pharmaceutical lobby in Washington. How that plays out for sure. We don't know so far. They have blocked about every important proposal. That would rein in costs so they. They are winning but Two or three years ago. These proposals wouldn't left the gate there. People wouldn't have author them. They wouldn't have been introduced now. Proposal have been introduced. They're moving. The House has passed Nancy. Pelosi's democratic backed DRUG PRICING BILL IN IMPORTANT Senate committee has passed a Republican authored. Drug Pricing Bill separately. You have trump moving proposed on drug pricing. All threes roles are a little bit different. But they're all share the same goal so we really think that's a big change from how things were a few years ago brody. When did cracks in the strength of Big Pharma for start to appear so about ten years ago? Pharma made a deal with Democrats in order to help. Pass Barack Obama's affordable care act. Pharma came to the table in negotiating a compromise with Democrats. That would in which Pharma would give its support to the affordable. Care Act and pay some money to help fund it in exchange for. Democrats not coming after farmer on some of its key issues as limiting drug prices. That was a big important deal. That Farro made that helped fuel the passage of the affordable care act and giving money to pass but really upset Republicans Republican have been fighting tooth and nail against the affordable care. Act in against Barack Obama. Remember back then it was. A one was first year to an office. And we're really fighting him. And they saw farmer once their biggest ally so desert them to help Democrats and a lot of Republicans. Some which are in very high positions of seniority imports. Now in Congress have never forgiven farmer for that and and that sort of help so the seeds for distrust among Republicans and and the industry tell us about some of those other signs that are starting to show perhaps the reduced influence of the drug lobby in Washington. It will number one seems to be the number bills that are out there. I was also amazed by the number of Republicans who who seemingly pretty conservative. Republicans from The mid West and from the West in the Rocky Mountain states who are endorsing these proposals. Republicans you'd think would be nowhere near Buckingham. Big National Industry Gore signing onto proposals to regulate the interview for the first time again. Nothing has become law. These these bills have not yet passed but there is a large number of Republicans. Were coming out against the industry. We also see at least along the rhetoric that a lot of Republicans are for the first time calling out Pharma for increasing drug prices. And that's just a big change. How things have been. So how do you think this will play out in the next few months as the twenty twenty campaign continues to heat up? There may be some bipartisanship in Washington right now but we'll hear from voters pretty soon in an ideal world for the advocates of these bills. There is room for agreement. There's room for a way to come up with a with a compromise that everyone can agree on but Washington is not an ideal world we have to inject politics into it. We have an election coming up. Which which sort of puts politics on steroids? I personally don't see anything happening this year and in part that's because of the main two players Donald Trump and Nancy Pelosi. Both wanted me happened so badly but I don't think they're gonNA want the other person to take any credit for it. Donald Trump really wants to pass a drug pricing bill. This year to tell Seniors Intel is base to blue collar workers that he's done fucking to help them and I just don't see Nancy Pelosi allowing that to happen At the same time I could see Nancy. Pelosi thinking that if a Democrat can win the White House then next year could be a fantastic opportunity to pass an even stronger drug pricing bill or law that she might support so I think for both those reasons even though both those players agreed that they want something to happen I can see them not being able to get something done this year. But we'll see that's investigative reporter Brody mullins joining me from Washington.

You could start a right now so let me ask you a question. I'm just going to get to the point here. Okay just get right into it. How do you view the world? Happy People view the world differently than can I say unhappy people. How do you view the world you can have every single day? Go Party or you. Positively person where it's just nothing but positively and it's not working out for you see you think it should be like this but you look at their and it's not that way and that in your every single day if I push more positively in the world is going to be that way and I think that might be true as well too long haul on that one I have to say is a challenge out there right now but but but yeah. It's we have to have that. Are you grow person? Do you do say everything's run. A non optimistic person fee will about negative person. How do you view the world I will tell you this people are generally happy have really rewire themself? Say See the world as it is and I've had this skill set in my brain for a long time and I do believe it's a skill set because I was confused back in the day and I think alert a skill set to see the world for what it is and still Kinda do capacity to see differently to make differently than that. We're longtime a long time ago when I when I decided to come out of high school if you knew me in high school when I grew up in a little town in Manassas Virginia High School called Stonewall Jackson. If you knew me back then you knew that there was one thing that Scott was going to do. He was going to be a big time. Radio Dj that was it was fun. Man Let's have some fun. Listen the radio listen big time radio. Dj guys the DC area big radio station code WPRO. See The goodguys. I call them. I said one day. I'm going to be that good guy. W PG see the change format before. I had the chance to get there but I was. I went onto be good guide other places all over the country. I realized something once it got work in the real world. Man People are pretty unhappy they are. It's like I'd go. So what are you? You're wearing t-shirts you're eating pizza. Give it away t shirts and other people you having a good time talking on the phone and why you unhappy. You don't have a real job. I don't understand this. Look at the sales of the radio stations in all kinds of money. I said why are YOU UNHAPPY? And it took me a few years to get to the point of going. Well I guess some people just that way because I was never that way but it was a shocker. Back in the beginning I so I have to look at the world differently because evidently this is not gonNa go away. Have you noticed that you can move away from people in the world? You can move away from anybody you've ever known he come back ten years later and they're still unhappy or is still putting their unhappiness on you. They may be happy themselves. But they're making you unhappy right but when you find those folks who see the world differently who understand what the world really truly is. They hold a bit of a dual capacity. They can see the world exactly as it is and yet had that place in their mind where they can reframe decide. Let's make this place better. I think it's hard to do. I do pretty naturally these days. It's the only thing I really truly understand. So how do they see the world? It's rose colored glasses right. They went down to the Walmart bottom suburbs at a rose colored glasses in a works. Maybe the amber wins worked. The Blue blockers remember those. I don't think so I think just have a better way. So if you WANNA see the world we're a happy person sees the world and you may already know if you already. Are that kind of person. See if this works for you see if this is what you're already doing if you're not listened closely and this might be a big challenge for you because I'm GonNa tell you you're gonNA get out of bed tomorrow morning so I'm going to do this. I'M GONNA go see the world who a happy person does and it's GonNa be Kinda hard to really have to be committed to it ready first off happy people like you're GonNa be our right now except that life brings problems it does. You're going to get rain yard just when you don't need it. It's going to snow just when you don't want it. Gave you a flat tire right minute. Middle that snowstorm archerd. So it's going to happen when you least expect it. Something's going to happen so happy. People kind of accept that now. I'm going to tell you I don't know that happy. People always go. Whoa look at that a problem. I think they probably go just kind of deal with it at all. I say most everything that we run into our life is self inflicted and it is a privilege it is. I was driving a Porsche through the mountains. One TIME COMING DOWN DENVER INTO DENVER out of a Frisco Colorado racing the airport really cool car and I got a flat tire I was running late and he was about twenty five degrees. I don't know what to do. Started to grow a little bit and then I was looking around with Iraqi balanced. Kinda hard to do that about that time. Construction work on the side of the road came up and said I can help you with that. I couldn't get man. It was drowned. Fancy car is in the mountains the Rocky Mountains Colorado. I was going to go take an airplane. Ride still remember to this day. You saw it a little bit differently. You don't ever to happy. People they recognize. That problems are a privilege just like that driving. The Mountains Porsche comes with being alive. It truly is a privileged one day. You won't have that privilege so life is going to bring a problem and it's a privilege of being alive is why you got that problem. Happy People do get frustrated but they don't give up you see. They realized that while we don't want them and we try to do everything we can. Make sure we don't have problems in our life. Problems are normal. They're going to happen from time to time. Just when you least expect it. Happy People know that they also know that. They need to accept responsibility for solving. Those problems are just hoping they go away. Not just hoping somebody else will take care of it but actually solving those issues this problems that come into your life because they're going to be there anyway and if you had the ability to solve them personally. I believe that's a privilege because a lot of folks don't have that mindset if you literally can say well this is not what anybody else wants to change. Make better I nor do I. I'd rather not but I have the skill set and I had the right attitude. Let me go fix it. Happy People also deal with anything like threads throws at them they do you do to you very much the same. If you're not completely happy in your world but really happy people just say here comes and then they go sleep and they try to sleep the best they can and then they get up and they do it all over again and probably say just like I do. Let's see what happens today.

High Avalanche Danger Out West Affects Transportation And Ski Areas

High Avalanche Danger Out West Affects Transportation And Ski Areas

"To another story now. It's been a chaotic couple of weeks in the rocky mountains where large avalanches have closed highways ski resorts a single storm near Salt Lake City. It triggered a record forty eight slides as NPR's Kirk siegler reports. The increased avalanche risk comes at a time when more and more people are hitting the slopes in the high country. God probably Craggy Teton Mountains of North West Wyoming steep and deep Jackson hole is as a magnet for extreme skiers right. They're buddies goading them on on Matt Beauregard. And Rick lawler drop a fifteen foot cliff in this glade. Area called the tower three shits as just a melody honestly. You were just rep around rounded bounce. Skiing inbounds inside. The patrolled boundaries of the ski resort generally thought to be safer when it comes to avalanches. That's because all season skiers. I've been packing this snow down and stabilising it. But Matt Beauregard knows that's no guarantee we've actually triggered small slides on this exact face. They may duck a rope and ski ski out of bounds into the back country. But even here at the resort. They're wearing avalanche transceivers and safety gear. Just in case education's probably the most important thing. Rick here's wearing an air bag for added protection so in the case that he is stuck inside an avalanche you'll be able to pull this cord and hopefully float to the surface inbounds or in the back country. Avalanche danger is high across the mountain west. An unusually snowy early season followed by drought than dry powder. Storms then a punch of heavy wet snow last weekend in Utah. Today's storm dumped six and a half feet in Little Cottonwood Canyon home to the snowbird and Alta resorts awards and it ended up closing little cottonwood for fifty four hours and forty eight. Avalanches were reported one of those hit. The Road Mickey Champion is a forecaster here at the Utah Avalanche Center. She recorded wind speeds up to a hundred miles an hour on Ridge tops that further destabilize the already volatile snowpack in the Wasatch satch mountains. And then you put a big wrong heavy load or a wind load on top of that it just kind of upside down. It's like a pyramid when you take out the Baser Django when you remove one of the pieces says there were no fatalities reported in Utah. But last month skiers were buried and killed in avalanches within patrolled terrain at resorts in California and Idaho. Oh all of this is putting the round. The clock work. People tasked with keeping these mountains safe under the microscope Jackson Hole. Ski Patrol Director Drew Neilan stepping into his bindings above. You can't see it in the fog now. But there's a big cirque above us here and that's Casper Bowl. All and all that terrain is avalanche terrain every morning at dawn before the tram and the Gondolas Starts Spinning Army of Nielsen's patrol or detonating explosives lives to intentionally trigger slides. Now so skiers don't later and some of these can even be detonated remotely thanks to new robot like trolleys that reach even more dangerous surest remote places. Obviously we worry about avalanches coming down into the heavily congested areas. So that's one of our biggest concerns to get that work done early. Another big concern is simply that more. People are venturing out further into areas. They normally wouldn't have thanks to improved equipment. I think people assume that we're able that. We have the ability to completely eliminate the risk of avalanches within the scary. And that's just not the case but avalanche forecasters say along with the increased risk. It comes a new cachet becoming cool to say. You've taken avalanche courses and Dir as prepared as you can be Kirk Siegler N._p._R.. News Jackson Wyoming.
