"Alliance. And the Colorado chapter of the Sierra Club doesn't like oil and gas, apparently. So they decided that they were going to protest against the Western energy alliance that was having Golf outing earlier this week. And the way they did it. Was to fly an airplane. Over. The Western Energy Alliance is golf outing. And then they sent out a tweet about their protest. But but then, But then they deleted the tweet after a bunch of people pointed out to them. That they were pro testing fossil fuels by using an airplane that requires fossil fuels to fly around and so Oh, my gosh. And so, uh, now, actually when, when you go to the Sierra Club, Colorado Sierra Club's Twitter feed where they used to have that tweet of their their protests over the oil and gas groups event that tweet has been deleted. You know, this is the thing. When you're just so mindless and moronic that your goal in life is to end the production of the substances that made modern, convenient, comfortable life possible. Well, your brain dead enough that you won't realize your own hypocrisy. Right? You're you're Fighting against The things that let people drive to work and cook their food and heat their homes or cool their homes. Do this this time of year. And you know all these things, get on an airplane and take a vacation. You hate all of those things. And so when you're When your cult is as disconnected from reality as you must be to be part of a group like, you know, Sierra Club or or their worst groups in Sierra Club. There are parts of Sierra Club that, you know, care about the environment and, you know, making sure that the mountains are lakes and rivers are clean and stuff like that, but the real cultish part of these groups where there's against fossil fuels. There. There's so moron IQ and anybody anybody who is part of a group whose goal is to eliminate the use of fossil fuels. They should really They should really be ashamed of themselves right and they should be ridiculed at every turn, and I'm saying Even if it's your aunt, you know you should ridicule her about this until they stop and don't back down. And don't let them say Oh, you don't care about the planet like the bottom line. Is this these environmentalists? They don't really care about the planet. They just hate people. Pretty much. That's what it's about. They hate people because otherwise they wouldn't want to make it impossibly expensive for you to have a job or cook your food or heat your home. Um, but, uh, those people those lunatics are are in charge. Right now. In Washington, D C. You will recall that one of the first things That Grandpa Joe did was to cancel the federal permit for the Keystone XL pipeline. Now the Keystone XL pipeline would take oil from the Alberta oil sands. And route it via this pipeline to places mostly in the southern US where it would be refined into products that we would use gasoline for our cars in oil for other things in yada, yada yada now it's not like Without this pipeline. They're not going to produce the oil instead of what will happen is they will produce the oil and it will just be transported in ways that are more dangerous and also create more pollution. Through the forms of transportation. And then it will, uh, to some degree, especially to the degree that they end up sending in any of it overseas. It will be refined. In ways that also use more energy for the refining and create more pollution in the process of refining because America has very efficient Refiners. If they end up sending a bunch of this to China, China is going to refine. In a way it's going to put a lot more pollution into the air. By the way, I'm not talking about carbon as pollution. Carbon is not pollution. It's plant food. I'm talking about real pollution particulate matters and sulfates and all that stuff. And, of course, the transportation. When you kill the pipeline, you're going to have to transport that the oil by trucking by train. And those have quite high risks of accidents and big spills. And all that, anyway, the reason I mentioned all this after, uh Grandpa Joe, who does Seem like, you know, he might be a candidate for the new Alzheimer's drug. Not that the new Alzheimer's drug, not that we know that it works. But you know, he and his wife made like 16, or $17 million after leaving the White House from speaking fees, and I think she wrote a book and that sort of thing so You know they could They could try the new drug. See? See if it would help him anyway. The company That Is behind. Keystone Exhale used to be called Trans Canada and now they're called TC energy. They announced yesterday that they are giving up. On the Keystone XL pipeline. They've decided to terminate the project, according to CNN business terminate after a comprehensive review of its options and consulting with the government of Alberta, Canada. The company said it would coordinate with regulators, stakeholders and indigenous groups to ensure a safe exit from the project. The cancellation ends more than a decade of controversy over the pipeline and marks a big win for environmentalists who argued the project threaten the environment and would only worsen the climate crisis. God these people are dumb. Just I know. Listen in My dad may be listening right now. And, Dad, If you're listening, you can text me and tell me my, uh My dad doesn't like it when I call people, dumb or stupid or something on the air. And yet I'm just These days. I'm just so Loss to come up with other words, you just stupid is such a understandable direct word. Everybody knows what it means. Yet we can come up with all kinds of other euphemisms for it. And people know that dumb is pretty good, synonym for stupid most of the time, and I just I feel bad when I use that word sometimes because I know my my dad has cautioned me against using the word stupid too much on the air, but we're surrounded by so much stupidity. I just Don't know what else to do. Oh, my gosh. I mean, listen to these people.

In any case she said the us president can resend the permit at will like president biden. Just did for the keystone excel tar sands pipeline. A second option is to get the army corps of engineers to resend several permits. She argues the core granted illegally last november under the clean water act which allowed construction to start but the law is very clear that before issuing a permit under the clean water act and an evaluation under the national environmental policy act or niba that the army corps needed to look at the risk of spills from the pipeline and needed to look at how that risk of spills would affect local tribes and tribal resources and they did neither here in the line.

Low-income communities of color must be included climate action, activist says

"Richard maybe an is an environmental activist and president of the Kansas City Kansas. Branch of the ACP. He says, it's important to engage low income communities in climate. Action. We don't have a total effort in this country to deal with the reduction in greenhouse gas, which just spinning our wheels in mood but a lack of trust can be a barrier. He says too often strangers come to a community to do outreach but then they leave just as people are getting to know them and an environmental groups maybe infrequently finds he's the only black person in the room. So that means that we still have people that are non persons of color. They are capable of going into those neighborhoods where there's a lack of trust and making a difference. So we suggest finding community partners. For example, he worked with the Sierra Club on an energy efficiency campaign in Kansas City the group gave him background materials. Then he gave presentations to the community maybe and says this train, the trainer approach builds trust and a more effective climate movement.

Moment is a time to reexamine. The clubs own substantial role in perpetuating white supremacy. Bruins says the group will reconsider the views of some of its founders that lead to the modern movement being so white today when it comes to John Muir, we're looking to advance the conversation about yours legacy to look at him in a more comprehensive and inclusive way. That acknowledges his limitations. Limitations and shortcomings, the Sierra Club says it's considering removing some monuments to its founders. Brune is also pledging that the group will reorganize to ensure that a majority of its leadership is comprised of people of Color, and he hopes to spend five million dollars on diversifying their staff and training. The announcement was welcomed by Mustafa Santiago Ali of the National Wildlife Federation. You know it's long overdue. Overdue we have to address the sins of the past.

"You would you help me get the head of the N. double ACP and Sierra Club to sit down together here in these chairs I would love to I mean that it would be easy is is like a they got they got cell phones and email later yeah an idea does it die do of talking about these issues and coming together on these issues and some of that is happening right now as we speak because you know sometimes when you sleep it it takes awhile for you to wake up but some people you can as touching they wake up but then some people they they got a hit the alarm clock and hit snooze and sometimes a bit US news for twenty five years yeah I I wanna broad brush but again there's some groups that have that understand that we are stronger together as a collective we are stronger together when we understand the whole language and I'm a pledge of justice we're not talking about taking away people's cars and put them on Mara or put them on here's Marc what we're talking about a just as a system where people have access to opportunity in if transportation is one of the justice issues he is and then we need to fight hard to make sure we have just all clean efficient assessable transportation for people who don't have cars and we need to make sure that we move in that direction of leaving no community behind when we talk about renewable energy let's not talk about you know this justification of energy and climate and all of that where where we talk about this moving away from dirty coal and what's left of the twelve dirty is coal plants they called the dirty dozen said if I was in a residence live within a two mile radius of the dirty so the dirty so the twelve of people calling seven five percent now let's talk about having renewable energy in a green energy economy that leaves no community behind and specials communities have been left behind for decades that needs to be we talk about the green new deal in and let's not have the old deal that the new deal in the thirties left behind lots of people in a lot of people look like me it looks like you in terms of race being somehow not addressed in the old new deal so we have to understand history on the sociology but I am a strong student of history and we have to learn from from history and not repeated and make sure that we have all our discipline that's all we need historians and journalists and humanities brought into this conversation we need artists who can take those big murals in those videographers who can make those punchy videos and all that's happening right now young he was doing that you're just joining us doctor Robert bowlers distinguished professor of urban planning and environmental policy at Texas Southern University and a drunken Tero is director of diversity equity inclusion with the energy foundation I'm Greg Dalton drunken Tero the green new deal is this aspirational thing that's out there that you DO a lot of people probably couldn't quite define but I but is stirred quite a debate and I think that the inclusion of some of the justice and economic issues the doctor bollards talking about scares some liberals it makes them uncomfortable because if they think they're going to lose some of their privileged some of their wealth is that fair I think that's fair I think that's why it's stirred so much debate but to quote again what doctor Bullard said earlier the green you deal was came on the scene with a Big Bang because of the intersection allergies that are presented and it really brought to light the reality that we can no longer think of the environment AS one bucket that just sits alone in the silo no it Hugh with transportation has to housing it has to do with jobs it has to do with health all of these things are tied directly to our environment to where we live to our opportunities and the the there is absolutely no threat to thinking of it that way that's actually how we break this logjam that we've had and and frankly take the energy out of the the others who debate whether or not environmentalism is something that's important when we start to show the connection to every single part of our lives there it's under it's undeniable so anyone who is nervous about this particular piece of legislation just needs to look at how it's energized the conversation is sparked debate like no other piece of policy has at least and again in my lifetime in this movement and and I think that is where we need to be we need to start talking about solutions that actually benefit everybody and benefits all the aspects of our lives because if we continue to to silo environment we're gonna lose a lot of people and it's just not realistic and the people are gonna be most impacted our communities of color which you know we were just talking about the the the the the insanity behind excluding communities when you look at the polling behind communities of color buy it every single time we've looked at it the support that exists for climate policies the awareness of the fact that climate change is happening is so much higher among communities of color and we had looking at which he knows what you're talking about the Spanish speaking only communities and it's even higher and and so why wouldn't we take advantage of the fact that even if you wanted to just be brass tacks database that's the top that's a ton of people and the same thing when you look at the people who are energized by the green new deal there's millions of people who would have never stepped into the space had that not come on the scene so that energy to me is what we need much more of a we need to continue to generate that and and have that these new and innovative ideas they might seem scary to some but it's just because change is what makes the full nervous and you know what that's a good thing that means we're growing doctor board a lot of those could mainstream environmental efforts have been funded by people who basically want to keep the economic and class structure in place and they're worried that their house in the woods might burn down their their their house on the full ocean might get flooded and they want to keep things the same kind of swap out fossils for clean but they don't want to tackle some of these deeper racial and structural issues is that fair yes the yeah yeah the long and short of it is is that I think the time is past for tinkering and around the edges the fact that we are facing a threat in terms of climate change and global warming that that that it will it will call for bold action in bold decisions that that will need to be made across the board and economic political in terms of our transportation systems in terms of our energy systems in terms of of our housing in terms of land use planning in terms of all those things coming together so it's not just you know we talk about solution yes can have you know a few policy makers sitting in a room who've all been trained in one little area who went to the same school who may not understand anything was going on the ground in a community with a net they flown over it thirty thousand feet and ever at thirty thousand feet everything looks small looks great you can't see the group granular kind of thing so so so so we need to really think through this whole idea of keeping things as they are right now in Houston Texas fourth largest city in the country only major city that doesn't have zoning with fighting like hell to make sure that the recovery does not post Harvey recovery does not reproduce the pre Harvey inequality we don't wanna revealed on any quality and and make it like a wallet with a like a wild is on equal it took a biblical flood to get environmental groups mostly white groups in Houston to come together with groups of the Romani justice groups of faith based groups groups working on transportation and and food security etcetera to come together and we say it should not take a disaster for us to come together but two thousand eighteen election was a blue way in Houston into it and the old guard was swept out new guards came in and the idea of building equity into way funding building equity into the way that decisions are being made having the right people who have been exposed to any quality for decades in charge they can see that it makes a whole lot of sense to build out housing because housing affordability is a big issue transportation a big issue access to jobs are the issue around flooding around issues around land use planning next cetera all these things have to be dealt with and not just one issue of flood mitigation so we go with the old guard did just want to flood mitigation and they come money follows money money follows power money files like that's how it was done before that's a formula is that that's that's shown and and and it it comes out in study after study with the cost benefit analysis you get money following what the most damage the biggest homes cost benefit analysis will say well you put the money with a notice on the homes are why should you invest in eighty thousand outhouses a win it costs forty thousand to do whatever they put the money over where the big homes are in and the big homes and neighborhoods in big holes will get we'll see their property values increase where's communities of color what will lose they will lose out study after study and so what we say let's not keep that policy in place that will marginalize community further down the economic ladder and at the same time move the more fluent and another at another level which they increase their their home values and their quality of life their their their disaster preparedness in their resilient like Sattar wishes you make poor communities even more marginalized that's what we're fighting in Houston we saw that you know play out in the one that's between we seeing it play out in disaster after disaster we said that should not be that's the wrong complexion for protection and we're fighting that we're saying but it took a flood of as I said bill proportion to get groups together who never talk to each other never met together the because rich people work were flooded now there understand what we've been saying when you don't protect the least in your society you place everybody at risk and so our thing is just as well say less do fairness equity and and just just to make sure that we do not somehow say just because you live in a low income neighborhood that you don't deserve to have a park a grocery store and and flood mitigation flood protection you don't deserve have access to transportation we say that's the equity part that's the justice part that we build into a climate resilience plan a sustainability plan Anna Anna afford housing affordability plant all of that and some people say well no that's not dealing with the problem of flooding well it's flooding plus flooding plus all of the the pollution chemical com is located.

Activists Will Use Super Bowl To Raise Awareness About The Environment

"When thousands of people attend and millions of People Watch the Super Bowl in Miami on Sunday? Environmental groups hope that some people will look beyond the stadium. They want to use the super bowl to raise awareness about ocean health and the everglades. Here's Alexandra consolidate of our member station.

Scenic coral. FEC's Miami has hosted the Super Bowl eleven times times more than any other city. But it's the first time that the local host committee has decided to make this kind of awareness campaign focused on the environment they call it ocean to everglades everglades. Hard Rock Stadium sits right in the middle from the Atlantic Ocean into the everglades to its west. Eric I can Burg wants the nonprofit everglades foundation station one of the groups putting on this campaign but when they turn on the tap at home to drink water to wash their cars go in their poll. Whatever it might be the water supply that they're benefiting from comes from the everglades millions of Floridians get their drinking water from the biscuit aquaphor located under the everglades? That's partly why. Some environmentalists environmentalists are calling for restoration of the so called river of grass. The large source of underground freshwater depends on the health of the wetlands. I Burke says says the focus is not only on the everglades but also plastics in the ocean invasive species and algae blooms the last six years. We've had states of emergency due due to red tide and blue-green algae so this has become mainstream Florida's Republican governor got involved with the effort Rhonda Santa's announced the launch of the Super Bowl campaign reign on Earth Day.

According to the National Oceanic an atmosphere administration global sea level is likely to rise at least a foot by the end of the century. Jack alone says in another fifty years Miami might not be able to host another super bowl. That's how fast it's going to take for the sea level rise to make life really bad in Miami fans of Sunday's Sunday's game we'll be cheering on the two football teams but these advocates hope that everyone at the Super Bowl will also route for the environment for N._p._R..

Despite Bankruptcy And Illness, Bob Murray Remains A Loud Voice For Coal

"Into Bob Murray's Corner Office in Saint Clair's Ville Ohio feels like stepping back in time. Mr Brady's here Murray wears dark suit jacket with a silk handkerchief poking out of the pocket he sits behind a large dark wood desk. Nice to meet to. Oh Murray returns eighty years old in January and his less steady on his feet than it used to be. He suffers from lung disease but says it's not related to years of working underground in coal minds. There's constant hissing sound in his office. That's the Oxygen Murray needs debris he says three hospitals have rejected him for a lung transplant. Because because of history of strokes not on my fighting for my own life. But I'm fighting for the life of my employees. My company Murray's is recent bankruptcy comes after a long career. He began as a minor then built his own company. Eventually with seven thousand employees. Natalie Biggs is a coal industry three analyst with Wood Mackenzie so a lot of coal companies had Undergone bankruptcy and around Twenty fifteen twenty sixteen and Murray was one of the ones sounds that actually kind of made it through that period and was able to purchase a lot of assets off the back of that or bankruptcy boom big says Murray energy took on debt as the the coal market continued to decline and bankruptcy. Murray says he'll lose ownership of his company. Some of his unionized workers may lose healthcare and pension benefits benefits and the filing is a political loss for president trump. We have ended the war on American energy and we have ended. Ah The war on beautiful. Clean Coal Bob. Murray has had the trump administration's ear. He drafted an action implant. Help coal than delivered it to Energy Secretary Rick Perry photos from the meeting. Show the two men hugging while trump rolled back some environmental regulations. On Murray's is list the administration was not able to deliver the subsidies for coal plants. That Murray wanted he argues that Cole. With fuel stored on site is more reliable. The a natural gas that's piped in and renewable energy that depends on the sun and wind still. Coal is losing market share to these cheaper and cleaner ways of generating being electricity murray argues that makes the electric grid less reliable. But all of a sudden one of these days you'll be hearing about on NPR about this power grid failure and people are going to become alarmed and all of a sudden they don't forget this nonsense called Climate Change Murray predicts that will come during a winter storm and that people will freeze to death. Frankly this is just a scare tactic. Tactic Marianne hit with the Sierra Club. Says there are smart. People running the country's power grids they take into account every coal plant closing and make sure the grid remains remains reliable. Empty promises about bailing out coal plants or reviving the fortunes of the coal industry are just distracting our country from from the real work we need to be doing hit. Says that is moving. The country away from coal and toward cleaner Renewable Energy Murray's climate denial and call boost booster. ISM are evidence of a key element of his personality once. He's concluded he's right about something Murray doesn't give in. Here's another example of that at twelve years ago Murray Energy made news for a tragic mind collapse in Utah that trapped six workers or singing my life I take it obviously to my grave. Demand were never located and ten days later. Three rescuers died as another section of the mine collapsed. A government report concluded there were flaws in the mind design. Murray's company was find more than a million dollars for safety violations yet even today Murray Denies Responsibility. A lot of blame being pointed in the end I was correct. It was an earthquake seismologists at the University of UTAH. Say say. That's just not true. The earthquake was the result of the mind collapsing even now as he struggles for breath just walking across the room. Murray is still oh pushing for what he believes. As company was preparing for bankruptcy Murray delivered a speech in West Virginia calling on federal regulators to subsidize coal. Aw and keep his industry alive.

Whether they will relocate the bureau of land management headquarters to a western state, or Richardson has more. The stated goal is to better manage federally owned public lands, which are mostly in the west.

Zona Idaho, New Mexico and Colorado have been most prominently mentioned for the relocation, actually the with the Sierra Club of. Utah says they see no real reason for the move. The current system is working sort of if it's not broke, don't fix it mentality, but there their field offices throughout the west and they communicate regularly with headquarters, and so I don't see huge benefit to moving the headquarters. Why says the states being considered have large contingents of legislators and other interests who want the state's control federal ends? However, conservation groups such as the Sierra Club and others have fought for years to keep public lands under federal control. They're concerned that those lands could be opened up for mineral leases or other development or might be sold out right to private interests over the last two years.

"Generously. Interspersing readings from a couple of pieces in the new book the few lessons. I've learned about writing essays all came from my editor at the New Yorker Henry Fender, I I went to Henry in nineteen Ninety-four is would be journalist and pressing need of money. Largely through dumb luck. I produced a publishable article about the US postal service, and then through native incompetence, I wrote an publishable piece about the Sierra Club. This was the point at which Henry suggested that I might have some aptitude as an essayist. I heard him to be saying since you're obviously, a crap journalist and denied that I had any such aptitude. I've been raised with the mid western horror of yacking too much about myself, and I had an additional prejudice derived from certain wrongheaded ideas about novel writing against the stating of things that could more rewarding Lee be depicted, but I still needed money. So I kept calling Henry for book review assignments on one of these calls. He asked me if I had any interest in the tobacco industry, the subject of a major new history by Richard Kluger quickly said cigarettes, the last thing in the world. I want to think about to which Henry even more quickly replied, therefore, you must write about them. Direct quote. This is my first lesson from Henry, and it remains the most important one after smoking throughout my twenty s I'd succeeded in quitting for two years in my early thirties. But when I was assigned the post office piece and became terrified of picking up the phone and introducing myself as a New Yorker journalist, and it was very scary because I had essentially no journalistic experience and I've been assigned a fifteen thousand word peace. I'd take up the habit again in this year since then I've managed to think of myself as a non-smoker, or at least as a person so firmly resolved to quit again that I might as well already have been a nonsmoker even as I continue to smoke. My state of mind was like a quantum wave function in which I could totally be a smoker. But also totally not a smoker so long as I never took measure of myself, and it was instantly clear to me that writing about cigarettes would force me to take my measure. This is what essays do. There's also the problem of my mother whose father had died of lung cancer, and it was militantly anti tobacco. I'd concealed my habit from her for more than thirty for for more than fifteen years. One reason I needed to preserve my indeterminate see as a.
