This is the top end of the range. Can you model a breakout of oil through 60? Well, you have all of the telltale signs of a structural bull market at play here, you know, not only do you have oil, you know, charging towards $60 a barrel. You have metals prices back to supercycle era levels. You have grains exploding. You have global liquidity, increasing tremendously. Its exact same time you look at the dollar is broken multiyear trendlines going back in 2011. So when we think about the potential for a macro re pricing across Commodity complex. This is the highest it's been and well over a decade. So we think there's a lot of upside risk not only to oil but the entire community complex. You know, I want to talk about your guns.

No. When we think about the current environment, and particularly given the ES G over like, um, there's only really two sources of oil that could be brought on quickly to meet the potential deficits that we expect over the course of the next 12 to 24 months, and that's the Middle East. In the United States, so it's going to be a very important part of that supply mixture. Now when we think about, you know the potential for Iran coming back with the Biden administration, one Iran is probably fallen down the policy agenda somewhat, but more importantly, we expect there to be room for that supply as well. When we look out into the 2022, Where does the Saudis and where the Russian speaking of the wonderful Jurgen book Where do they? Where's their optimal oil price? I mean, I know Mr Putin is going to say higher, higher higher, but where's their best price? Well, I I just want to remind everyone that member in the 2000 during that structural bull market they go the best price is 22 2 $28 million. You're my best price is 35.

Nine o'clock with Michael Krasny, the statewide Colin special with Meena Kim, all 9 to 11 today, Right here on KQED. Areas of dense fog parts of the Bay Area. Drive carefully if you're out there this morning. The highs today mid fifties to the low sixties. Partly sunny conditions after the fog goes away later today, basically the same forecast for the Sacramento Valley with highs 53 to 61. It's morning edition from NPR News. I'm Noel King and I'm Steve Inskeep. You could follow political news for many years and never really even notice the event that took place yesterday. Congress met as it does every four years and formally counts the electoral votes. Sent in by the states from the presidential election. Occasionally, AH few lawmakers object this time a large block of Republicans objected to a democratic election protest ng Joe Biden's win, which had been affirmed by all 50 states and tested in dozens of lawsuits. Then, in an act of insurrection, Pro Trump extremists swarmed the capital and disrupted the work of Congress. Our democracy is under unprecedented assault. Like anything we've seen in modern times. No salt. The citadel of Liberty to those who struggle to tear if from our responsibility you have failed. Violence never wins. Freedom winds. This is still the People's house. We just heard the voices of President elect Biden, whose win lawmakers were certifying House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, whose office was raided and looted. And the last voice was vice president. Pence who was presiding over the joint session of Congress. Pence was also the last voice We heard early this morning after Congress got back to work and formally confirmed The obvious. NPR congressional correspondent Kelsey Snell and NPR National Political correspondent Mara Liasson are both with us this morning. Good morning. Good morning. Good morning. What were the ways in which the president incited the violence? The president spoke to the protesters on the Ellipse, encouraging them to walk to Congress, encouraging them to put pressure on Republicans who are not joining in the effort to undermine the election and throw out these slates of electors from the states. And he said that you know, weakness will never win. And it's not just that many people on both sides of the aisle who hold Trump responsible say that it's also that he relentlessly pushed this lie that the election Was fraudulent and stolen from him that he has four years refused to commit to a peaceful transfer of power. For years, he has failed to condemn. Other acts of right wing violence and domestic terrorism and his comment to the proud boys to stand back and stand by, and they think this was the culmination. The logical conclusion of all of that. Kelsey is there also a role for Congress here because there were large numbers of members of Congress who took these objections. I mean, there's too often a symbolic objection, but they took these objections a lot farther than normal. Even though the evidence was quite clear, though, who won the election? Yeah, this was absolutely a turning point for Republicans. You know, there were some who decided to switch their vote and they decide to decide with the affirmation of Biden's win. But this is a party divided, new way that we have not seen before. This is not the typical infighting that happens in a two party system is well beyond that, and it's not going to resolve just after Inauguration Day. There are fervent trump supporters in Congress who helped fuel this. They will run for re election. They will fight in committees. They will continue to, you know, to fight for this. As Joe Biden takes office in the coming weeks. You know this also forced to break between Trump and some Republicans who supported him on policy in the past, But had, you know, turned a blind eye to his rhetoric, or said that you know what happens on Twitter is not related to what happens legislatively. You know, the members were forced to leave the capital through underground tunnels and shelter and secure locations. As these riders flooded into the capital, and even as they were in those rooms, members were insisting that they would return to the capital and finish their business last night, which they did do What was that day like you? You give us a bit of a hint there. It must have been. I mean, there must have been a moment when people wondered if they were even going to get out of the building. It was it was chaotic. There were reporters are returned to the capital now seeing Bullet holes in glass panes next to the House floor. It was it was not something that we would typically see in the capital, where it is typically a very secure place where You know, Capitol Police are typically well equipped to handle the protesters. Normal. Peaceful protesters are arrested. They're all of the time and there will be long term questions about how these people got into the building how they were handled and why they were allowed to leave without being arrested. Mara. There were a number of Republicans who objected to this camp it all along. Yes, there were a number of Republicans and don't forget even before yesterday. Even before the riots, Republicans were already forming a circular firing squad about Donald Trump. They just lost the two run offs and Georgia That means that they've lost control of all branches of government. The Senate will now be Democratic. Ah, lot of Republicans blame Trump for those losses. And remember the Republican Party started the day yesterday as with a big chunk of their members willing to undermine the will of the people changed the results of the election, and they ended the day with their leader, inciting a violent mob to take over the capital. So how does the party recover from that? There's going to be tremendous recriminations and bloodletting, and, um, you know that that's all going to be figured out. What's Trump's role going forward. He was going to be the king maker in the party. Now is he radioactive to a big chunk of the Republican Party's constituents, including big corporations? Don't forget Donald Trump later in the day. Even as he asked the protesters to go home, sympathize with them. Here's a little bit of what he said. This was a fraudulent election, but we can't play into the hands of these people. We have to have peace. So go home. We love you. You're very special. We love you. You're very special. Later He did issue a statement saying there would be an orderly transition on January 20th, although he added that he had a great quote first term. So who knows what he means? Mara? Thank you very much. You're welcome. That's NPR's Mara Liasson, along with NPR's Kelsey Snell, Kelsey, Thanks to you, Thanks for having me. Our next guest was sworn into Congress for the first time on.
YouTube Hiring for Some Positions Excluded White and Asian Men, California Lawsuit Says
"There's a lawsuit in California San Mateo County Superior Court in alleges that YouTube has sent minority hiring quotas. The suits filed by somebody named Armed Wilbur Gay YouTube recruiter who also worked for YouTube's parent company, Google. Now will Berg claims that last spring YouTube recruiters Were instructed to only interview female black or Hispanic applicants. The suit also says the company told recruiters to purge the applications of anybody not fitting Those categories. Will Berg, a white male says he complained, and when he was ignored, he went to Google management, and shortly after that they fired. Google says This is rubbish that they don't use identity. The higher just merit Now, according to the Wall Street Journal, 69% of Ghouls, employees are men. White and Asian guys account for 91% of the Google staff, and the tech industry has had a big push to diversify. The journal also reports that people familiar with Google and YouTube hiring practices corroborates some of the lawsuit's allegations, including the hiring freeze on white and Asian guys. And YouTube's use of racial quotas. The Journal says the lawsuit threatens to ignite simmering controversy about Silicon Valley's politics and whether it's predominantly liberal ideology is affecting how companies operate.
Proposition 25: Cash Bail
"Political correspondent Marissa Lagos is covering prop twenty five for cake. And she's also the CO host of the podcast political breakdown. Welcome Russa Pale, Libya. I. Can you take us through how the cash bail bond system works in California now? Yes. To do this I am going to make you an accused Felon Olivia Allen Price Right. So you're walking down the street in San Mateo County. You, get arrested on suspicion of possession for sale of a controlled substance. This wouldn't be like you have a little wheat in your bag. This would be like maybe you got a bunch hair win or they think you do. The bill for that is going to be set at twenty five thousand dollars just by the schedule that exists in San Mateo County. So the officers would arrest you and either you would have to over twenty five grand to the county to secure release or possibly depending on how big of a drug dealer they think you are. They might make before a judge who could either lower or increase that twenty five thousand. Dollars say you don't have twenty five grand laying around I mean really who does right? You would then decide whether you're going to stay in jail until you can get a trial set or you might call a bail bonds agency and what they would do is essentially guarantee the county that they would pay that twenty five grand if you skipped out on your case. So if you didn't come back for your trial dates. In exchange for that, you would have to pay them ten percent of that amount. So twenty five, hundred dollars. If you have the twenty five grand to post your own bail, you would get that money back regardless of whether you got convicted of the crime or the charges got dropped or you. Were found to be innocent. You would just get that money the just there to make sure you show up at trial. However, if you didn't have that kind of cashing around and you had to go through a bail bond agent that twenty, five, hundred dollars that you gave them to secure your bond, you would forfeit, you would never get that money back. The whole cash bail system has been under fire for a long time for being inequitable give us an example of how that inequity plays out. Look people who have been accused of very violent crimes up to murder can sometimes post bail if they have the means but a lot of people end up languishing behind bars for really minor crimes because they just don't have the money their families don't have the money and disproportionately study after study shows these tend be black and Brown people. If you can't pay that bail amount. You can't go to work. You might lose custody of your kid by losing your work. You might not be able to pay your rent. So what critics of the system say is that it kind of perpetuates the cycle of poverty. And potentially leads more people into crime or can lead people to plead guilty to things that they did not do or that they might have a good chance of fighting because they essentially just WanNa get out of jail and get back to their lives.
Dead crow tests positive for West Nile virus in San Mateo County
"Crow found in San Mateo County has tested positive for West Nile virus Mosquito in Vector Control officials say. It's the first detection of the virus in the county since 2018. The bird was found in South San Francisco earlier this week, and officials say the risk to humans is relatively low. You Khun still reduce your risk by preventing mosquito bites. This includes eliminating any standing water on properties and avoiding outdoor activity it dawn or dusk when mosquitoes are most active.
California wildfires force more than 60,000 from their homes
"About 560 active wildfires. These fires again are stretching. Our resource is stressing our personnel. We have over 12,000 firefighters now actively working to suppress these larger complex fires. Governor Gavin Eason said. More blazes are impacting Northern California because nearly 12,000 lightning strikes hit the region in the past few days. Wildfire raging in the Santa Cruz Mountains is about 2000 acres bigger today and now totals 50,000 Almost 65,000 residents are under evacuation order is in northern Santa Cruz and San Mateo counties because of the C Z, you August lightning complex. Has destroyed at least 50 homes and containment remains at 0% increase of 2000 Acres overnight is actually the smallest advance for the fire since it began early this week, thanks to slightly better weather. Los Angeles elementary schools could reopen
"Let's start the conversation by talking. About what information is getting out in the first place. It's hard to get accurate. Data about the virus is spread out of hospitals and clinics sin. So much happening so quickly. So if data and facts about the pandemic can't actually be recorded or communicated adequately. How do we know what information to trust? Well as you say Mike. It's hard to know because the information is coming so quickly because we're all on such high alert or so emotionally primed to react everything and because the whole danger of covert nineteen is that it's a new virus. We fundamentally don't understand it. That said the way a triage information is we know stuff that's coming directly from the World Health Organization and the CDC is the best. We've got trusted news. Organizations are giving us the best information they can. There are a whole lot of scientists out there trying to give us the best information they can swatting down false rumors. So there's a lot of good stuff in a massive flow and there's some bad stuff coming into nick. How should people put this information? Therre getting into context one of the things that I've been looking at and refreshing and I'm sure lots of our listeners have been to as Johns Hopkins website that shows Total confirmed cases around the globe as well as deaths from Corona virus and total recovered folks. And the thing is just by refreshing those numbers each day. It's it's rather alarming to see Even the county level here you know I've been monitoring Santa Clara and San Mateo County where I happened to live and and we see these numbers. Come OUT EVERY DAY. But it's it seems like it's difficult to put that into context when there is a lack of testing going on Particularly in the United States. And it's hard to know. How is this good? Is this bad thing scaling? Downward how should people be thinking about it with regards to context? Well I I would say that. You don't need to be constantly checking. I think because we're all at home. We're all obsessed in rural scared where maybe taking on too much of the burden of having perfect information and too much the burden of feeling like we need to really understand everything that is happening because the truth is will you and I need to do for ourselves what we need to do for our communities we need to do as reporters doesn't change based on the Johns Hopkins Chart Everyday or even every three days we know we're in a terrible situation where we have to socially distance take every precaution to the best reporting that we possibly can so. That's one thing I would say. I think there's a risk for a lot of people becoming emotionally debilitated by spending too much time seeking out perfect up to the second information when that's not what most of us need the second thing is. There's a very good question you just asked which is impossible to answer. Which is the main thing we're looking at in the main thing we're thinking that is the infection rate which until we have universal testing means almost nothing is just a proxy for the number of tests in any given area. It's basically the number. It's the number of people who are infected multiplied by the prevalence of tests and tests have been distributed in different places. Why does the pandemic looks so much worse in New York City today as we talk than in other places partly it's spread there? It's a very dense area. Bad luck started bear. Lots of people come through there and also it's one of the first places that had lots of castes. So it's very hard to read that particular line of data specifically as well well in with particular note towards testing and perfect information We heard The president bragging this week about how our testing numbers are up. And how they're better than South Korea's numbers but of course that's a flawed count because what we really need to know is testing per capita. We have a lot more people in this country than we do in South Korea and that really makes me think that this is an interesting thing to talk about because so many Americans are getting their information about the spread of the virus directly from the White House every day. There is a briefing in everyday. Millions of people are watching. So can we examine to what extent the president's comments in general have contributed to the spread of misinformation? I mean they've played a major role in the spread of misinformation starting from the very beginning where he said we had a completely under control. There's one case from China he no. That's in January. Two it will disappear. There's a series of factually incorrect statements that he made from January through the middle of March. That were contradicted by the scientists epidemiologists in the middle of March. He seemed to understand that it was in his political interest to start taking this more seriously and his tone changed with that. I believe it was the press conference on March twelfth or March Thirteenth The sort of the somber one where he didn't seem like he had has focused but where he actually seemed to have changed the way he was looking at this from a political nuisance to a serious issue that he had to deal with. But since then you're right he's gone back and forth and he has as his once said a whole bunch of things that aren't true he's been a little more excited about chloroquine than the scientists should be. He's been a little more enthusiastic about our response than maybe he should be and his statement that we should go back to work by aced Easter. If it holds people do actually go back to work on eastern if a miracle has it occurred between now and then that will be extremely dangerous so he has he has poisoned the information ecosphere on the other hand he has started also to point in the right direction. How so in that? He is now clearly focused on this working on it. And he's not denying it. He's no longer tweeting. Statistics about how much worse the flu is right. He now clearly recognizes that. This is a risk the American economy or risk to his reelection and a risk to all of us to our health. That leads me to my next question. Which is that. We're also receiving information from government outside of the United States right now and I'm wondering how much of that you think that we should sort of take at face. Value China in particular comes to mind because China's exposure to this was on the early curve of things now there are some reports suggesting that China could be getting back to work sooner than the US. And I'm wondering given the flow of information that traditionally we've had out of China how much you believe we can trust that right now. I trust the numbers in China. The question is do we trust the China got the Krona virus under control? I would say I do believe that I mean the story of information in China is fascinating because in the very beginning. There's the authoritarian blocking of information right and prosecuting people who are telling the truth about it and famously doctors who by province but I actually think that China has played since that moment a very responsible global role both within taken incredibly strong action that then quiets down the pandemic at home and then sharing resources with the world. Now there have been off a moment. The Press Secretary for Xi Jinping tweeted out some conspiracy theory nonsense about the US creating the virus. That was utterly despicable but as for the numbers I do trust that there has been substantial decline in China both because the Chinese government reporting those. But it's also the World Health Organization is over there too so The president and the White House in general have expressed a great distrust of the mainstream media. Of course we work in medium. We feel this every day They're also a lot of people who support the president in his policies who share that mistrust of the media In what ways is this general mistrust of the mainstream media affecting the spread of bad information and Is it sort of inhibiting the spread of good information? Oh Yeah it's it's extremely unfortunate one of the most tragic consequences of not just the trump administration but of the last ten years has been the decline in trust in mainstream journalism. And so now you can see that. A percentage of Republicans who believe that Corona virus is a great threat to this nation is much lower than the percentage of Democrats and that's in part because society has been filtered into a subset of people who read the free balanced press. That Myers a part of and people who don't and the breakdown of the trust that our profession had as absolutely made it harder for people to get good information. There was a period the first two weeks of March which were crucial weeks in this period when we go back and we tell the story of Krahn virus in the United States of America if we had acted on February fifteenth the way we acted on March fifteenth thousands tens of thousands hundreds of thousands of lives would be now. Why didn't we act on February fifteenth reactive on March Fifteenth? There are a lot of reasons but one of them was that there was a sense that half the country didn't trust that this was a real thing and that there were a lot of right wing pundits and people on Fox News and to some degree the president himself saying that this is the media trying to bring down trump which it was not but because that story was believed absolutely helped slow down our response. That's quite unfortunate nick to you that this kind of I don't know partisanship misinformation and distrust is also going to affect the way that we approach potential. Antibodies vaccines and cures for this. I hope not I mean my hope is that you the whole world is going to be different when this is over. All sorts of things are going to be changed from the way we organize our societies to the way we think about working from home to a million different things are GonNa Change. One thing that I hope happens. Maybe it's an opportunity for journalism to rebuild. Its trust with the public. Maybe when this is over people who didn't trust the New York Times because they think it's too partisan will realize that whatever you think of the politics of the editorial board of New York Times that the science reporting has been spot on right or if you think that the Atlantic is too critical of your favorite political candidates. You'll realize oh wait. They've done really tremendous reporting on corona virus. So it's possible that the mainstream press will win some of its
Everything You Wanted to Know About Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART)
"I bring you in here because we wanna do effectively like a art special. We get a ton of questions about Bart and you are as far as I'm concerned. The expert in my life. Oh okay well. I'm flattered to hear that. How long have you been covering transit and paying attention to what Barnabas well you know. I've paid attention to what bar does since the mid seventy S.. That's when I moved here and I started taking Bart right then. I think my first Bart ride was nineteen seventy-three. I went to a warriors game when the system was no more than in a year old. What was your first impression. When I came out here. Fart was sort of this rumor. It had gotten national coverage right because they were doing all this crazy he stuff. They were going to go eighty miles an hour. The was much faster than the commute trains went in Chicago. It seems space age and The shape of the cars configuration of the cars that was different from anything I had seen so yeah. It was a cool experience and the other thing was it. was you know it was kind of cheap. Listen there was a time when the short hop rides were twenty five cents. Actually that was just in downtown Oakland in downtown San Francisco although a quarter got a lot further in nineteen seventy three than it does today. I mean things are really different. I mean listen. The other thing about this system was it was not heavily used in the past ten years. Here's the ridership just skyrocketed when the economy came back after the great recession. And that's really one of the chief reasons we've had such a crisis of crowding. Well I think that kind of tease us up to a couple of questions that we got from listeners So this first one comes from mark and he wants to know in. Its nearly fifty years of existence. Why has taken so long to extend into Santa Clara County and only nominally portrait into San Mateo County and never expanded into any any of the North Bay counties. Well there's a complicated history to that but I mean the simple version is that Bay Area Counties had the choice of opting into Bart art in the early sixties and some opted out Santa Clara and San Mateo opted out. There was some talk about a going up to the North Bay going to Marin that history is even more complicated there were engineering studies at showed it was feasible to put a track below the roadway on the Golden Gate Bridge and get the trains over. There were three engineering studies. That found that was fine. One sponsored by the Golden Gate Bridge district did not support that idea but that was on the table and when San Mateo County opted out the backers of Bart then no longer thought that the Marin idea would be feasible so they sort of pulled back on that and in the meantime you know the Golden Gate Bridge district never really liked the idea because back then Bart would have been competition for the service they were offering so far has only gone into Santa Clara and San Mateo detail in recent history because the people in those counties decided they wanted barred. Well I WANNA go back to the early days of the the beginning of Bart. We've got a question from listener. Who wants to know. How did they build the underwater tunnels for Bart. So this is one of the great epochs of the Bart Construction Story It took years and years to design the system that they used and the tube was built in sections they would build the sections in pieces that were longer within a football field and then when they were done with all that work they would tow the section of the tube out into the bay and then they would lower the tube which was sealed both ends down to its location which was of course very precisely marked and divers would join join the sections of Tube together one at a time so that joining the meant they were being welded together and bolted and the to was resting in a shallow trench that had been dug before the sections were brought out? So it took about three years of actual construction auction to get that all together. And that's the Tube we have today the other thing the other aspect I find fascinating is that you know you're actually going down. Pretty pretty steeply sides of the bay where you start up on the Oakland. And you're you're above ground say fifty feet and then you you the plunge under the bay this thing is a one hundred and thirty feet below the bay and then you have to come up on the San Francisco side to connect to the tunnel at Embarcadero cricket hero. The experiences a writer is pretty flat. You kinda feel you're just going straight across. Oh that's right. There are a couple of places where you actually change elevation under the water and It doesn't really feel like you're going up or down but that's exactly what you're doing. Let's get to our next question now. I WANNA go down into the Bart Stations. A couple parts ten questions. So this comes from Brad Meier. I've noticed that they're empty. Newsstands at some stations. What is the history. And why are they closed. And they could provide jobs to vendors in income to Bart. I'm asking because other transit systems around the country have newsstands open in their stations. So we came down to Bart's Montgomery Street station to answer Brad's question and standing looking at where one of these kiosks ask stood. Listen to deal with those kiosks was it was mainly an outlet for the chronicle and examiner the to San Francisco. Newspapers both are still in existence. They used to have a joint operating agreement and so vendors deal both of them. The Kiosk were actually very limited in size so not really amenable to the much bigger business. But the main thing that's happened is the newspapers Don't circulate by selling on the street anymore. Selling and Transit Stations Asians and that's due to the Internet and its do smartphones where people are carrying that information with them instead of having a paper medium in terms arms of whether these could be re purposed for another kind of business. Well maybe but again they're small A bit smaller. You're perhaps in the ones that you see in New York and Chicago and some other cities but the other thing is those kiosks generally sell other kinds of goods so food and Barton generally inside the station's discourages consuming food. We know that from a very recent famous incident where somebody was detained cited for eating breakfast sandwich at the Pleasant Hill station. Those are the main considerations and why these kiosks just aren't going going thing anymore but there is one sort of cool thing about this kiosk if you actually walk over to where used to stand here at the eastern end of the Montgomery Street concourse. Here's an audio effect. If you stand exactly where the kiosk was. Here's kind of an echo chamber here and is right for experimentation enjoy writing and now we have to go catcher train all right well. Let's get to our next question. I'm Jay Quigley and I live even Oakland at West Oakland Bart Station. Their ads right next to the third rail. How on Earth did they change those out without getting electrocuted. I asked this question because every time I look at the third rail I get terrified. Well you know the third rail is something you don't WanNa touch under any circumstances it's very high voltage and Instant death or at least extremely serious injury if you do come into contact with it so what they do is You Know Bart is shut down for a part of every day. Trains really stop running around one. Am and then. There's a window of time between one and four in the morning when a lot of maintenance activity takes place they shut down the third rail. I was told by Jim. Allison at Bart that they call it laying down a blanket. Meaning you know making that area like as if you're covering the rail with a blanket to make it safe they're not physically doing that and then Once the rails are de energized than the workers can work safely there
