The Impact of Wildfires on Climate and Air Quality

"Are trying to get the upper hand When my saying any hand on a bunch of fires burning up and down California, it is a horrendous fight. The Bobcats Fire in the Angeles National Forest, The Eldorado fire in the San Bernardino National Forest, You know, the one that began with a gender reveal party, the creek fire in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, where there have been dramatic evacuations. Containment in those fires is small and the battle is heroic. But I don't have to tell you that large swaths of the state and the West Coast are burning. You can probably see it in the air. As in the air. You and I are breathing. Maybe you're wondering like me What's in that air and is it putting you in any danger? Rachel Becker is an environmental reporter for Cal matters. And she's here with some answers. Rachel. Hi around sunset Yesterday I took a drive up PCH. Ah, the son was hazed out. The sun actually had bands. I could look directly at it. And it looked like Jupiter. I remember thinking to myself. Oh, my God, that looks like a planet, not a star. I'm seeing picture after picture today of San Francisco, doused in this glowing orange color and other places, too. What is in that smoky air? It's it is unearthly. Ah, and what we're seeing is when a wildfire burns through vegetation. It turns out these fine airborne particle pollution, sewage. It turns out soot that can irritate the lungs and have been linked to hurt and lung problems. Premature death. There are also gases like carbon monoxide, cancer causing chemicals. That mix into this smoke cloud as well. It really creates this kind of toxic soup that can change depending on what is burning and how hot it's burning and as those chemicals kind of stew in the atmosphere, they keep reacting, so they break apart. They joined together and they make new ingredients that people can inhale and that can harm people's lungs. On then, on top of that, there are also burning cars and buildings. And while those make up a smaller fraction of the smoke that people far from the fires in hell, they could present a health risk to the people right up close fighting those fires. Yeah, A lot of the firefighters are dealing with with with terrible situations. I know that this is a very basic question. A primary question. If if I don't smell the smoke, does that mean that the air is okay? Not necessarily. There still could be fine. Ah, airborne particles what you're smelling and isn't necessarily reflecting what the health risk could be. So you know when we talk about smoking here, quality if it comes down to, as you say, particulate matter, On Dure talking about suit. You're talking about the fine particles that you can inhale and and those particles get lodged in your lungs right? And they can and those particles Khun do like a lot of damage to your body, talk a little bit about that in the dangers of that and what we conducive to help ourselves. Yet researchers have found increases in emergency room visits for heart problems for breathing problems. There were reports of increased risk from stroke during wildfire smoke events. Eso it's It's definitely a health risk, and if people can, they should stay away from it. Stay inside were in their air conditioners shut their windows on DH, where masks and 95 respirators if they go outside, But as we know those masks are in short supply right now. On people coping with the heat may not be able to afford running their air conditioners right now, or they're they may be using air conditioners that suck in air from the outside. There are also folks farm workers who are working outside right now, so not every Californian may be able to keep themselves as safe as they need, Teo. That's that sounds bleak. It is bleak, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention of also warned that wildfire smoke can increase susceptibility to lung infections, including the novel Corona virus. We have people who are evacuating being forced by circumstances into close proximity, which can increase the risk of the Corona virus spreading. I talked to. Ah, mother and daughter, who were evacuating one of the Lightning sparked fires at the end of August. And they said the choice of whether to evacuate and be around other people or stay in their homes and risk burning was A pretty clear one to make, you know. They told me we're going to catch on fire and we're going to be dead or we're going to go someplace where there's more than eight people. You know, we keep seeing that wildfire season gets longer and longer. I mean shoot. Most of California isn't fire season all year round. It seems like especially in the drought years of of late. When you keep breathing in the terrible air fromthe wildfires that keep happening over and over again Over the course of years and years when you see that, you know the research that's out there. Obviously your body takes a big hit, right? It can't be good for you. Yeah. I mean, this is a climate change story. You know, a collision of crises we can expect to see more of climate change is worsening wildfires. It's making it hotter. And as a result of that, and our continued reliance on fossil fuels, our air is going to get dirtier. It's this kind of vicious spiral that's caught Californians and isn't letting go and lower income Californians are going to be hit especially hard. You mentioned climate change. Obviously, we just came off of it. I mean, record breaking hot weekend where temperatures exceeded 100. 20 in Woodland Hills and some other parts of greater L A. I mean, Ah, Heat exacerbates this for sure. And we're getting hotter, right? Yeah, yeah, We're definitely getting hotter. With climate change and and heat. Khun basically stew, the toxic soup of air pollution from the air can become stagnant. It can trap pollutants and make an increased surface levels of smog. On. That's in addition to all of the particulates and smoke we have in the air, so we're really seeing a combination of pollutants and risks for people out there breathing this Rachel

SpaceX now dominates rocket flight, bringing big benefits to NASA

"Space space x has been heavily revenue funded. And you know lots of that by NASA There's a great publication which is a great thing about NASA as as a government agencies. Everything's public services audit. It's called audit of commercial resupply services to the International Space Station and this is publishing in two thousand eighteen. That has great diagram of money that flowed to different companies spacex. Boeing orbit all Sierra Nevada. Others and what flowed for all the different programs? Be It commercial crew or Worshiping people. Up and SPACEX has received seven point seven billion dollars in contracts from NASA for launches which is is is astounding compared to a company. That would be trying to sort of do as much as SPACEX has done without actually having a customer on the end of every rocket it'd be it'd be impossibly hard. I mean they would. It would take so much more capital and it would change your priorities. And what spacex really has has done here and. I don't think I realized this. Every time I'm watching. One of these SPACEX launches and getting all excited about a new piece of technology On that rocket which by the way there's a new piece of technology on every rocket every single mission they fly is is different hardware than the previous one because they're constantly iterating every time they do that almost every time. Save for tenor so There's there's a customer that's paying them money to to send that thing up and so you know NASA has been responsible for seven point seven billion of that. The other thing that NASA has put in money for which has been really interesting is when you mentioned the spaceship David which ultimately be called the Dragon Capsule Developing the sum. Total the Falcon nine which were about to go into the story of and the dragon that cost about four hundred million dollars of Nasr's money and about four hundred and fifty million dollars spacex his money to to go and develop that and at some point NASA did an internal audit to basically say well. How much would that cost us if we didn't sort of bid this out To space x to go and do this you know if we had built this the way that we built the space shuttle. How much would that have cost us? And it basically what they find as the numbers about four billion. Wow so it is the cost absolutely like say what you will about. Wow spacex really got in there and scored that NASA contract. But they're they're saving NASA an enormous amount of money by sort of taking on the risk to vertically integrate all of this and making much cheaper her raucous.

"sierra nevada" Discussed on How I Built This

"So just a few days ago. Ken Grossman and I were supposed to be sitting side by side on stage at the Sydney Goldstein Theater in San Francisco for a live. How I built this show to hear how he built. One of the biggest craft beer companies in the country but instead that events like every other event was cancelled. But we didn't want to miss out on getting a chance to hear Ken story because too good and to inspiring to wait until we can all go out again so we asked Ken to record himself from his home just outside Chico California and by the way that's how it's going to be for a while because our staff our guests me probably many of you were all at home now and starting to adjust to this very weird new reality. I'm gonNA confess something here. I feel a little bit conflicted about doing a show that celebrates building and creating when so many businesses are in trouble now. Somebody people are worried but I also think of this show as a place of hope and possibility this is GonNa be a long challenging journey for all of us and we're going to need stories of people who can inspire us with the challenges they've overcome and the battles they've waged the odds. They've defeated to build something truly special. Sierra Nevada. Now before we even get into Ken Story. We wanted to hear from him about how things are going with managing the crisis so far and of course in one way the company is in better shape than most because lots of people are in need of a beer these days so in places where they can get it they are buying it. They're buying a lot of it. And when I spoke to Ken a few days ago he told me his production facilities are still open but he has no idea how long it might last a lot of the businesses that we depend on to sell our products are severely challenged right now and you know having this kind of financial disruption happened to tens of thousands of small family owned and run bars restaurants With the stores across the nation is going to have a huge toll on the lives of those people. The economy's in those communities so it's it's been one of the most difficult and stressful weeks in our existence I've had a lot of them over forty years. It was a lot of sleepless nights but this is sort of the pinnacle of of things for us to have to work through an and to make decisions about and yes over the course of building. Sierra Nevada beer can has had a lot of sleepless nights starting with trying to build a craft brewing company in his twenties with barely any money. When people didn't really know a craft beer was in fact when can introduce his now legendary Sierra Nevada Pale Ale to his friends in one thousand nine hundred most of them thought it was undrinkable but today his company is the third largest craft brewery in the US. After Boston. Beer Company and yelling in Canton and his family owned one hundred percent of Sierra Nevada but making money and becoming rich from beer was far from Kansas at his core. He is a beer brewer. Not a businessman totally obsessed with the process with the hops and barley in the mall to the strains of yeast and his interest in brewing and fermentation actually started when he was a kid growing up. In La's San Fernando Valley. We had a a small neighborhood group of boys Growing up through elementary school. So I met my neighbor I think it was second grade and his father was a you even back then was making home. Beer and wine and Was a Super Very progressive person for the time. He's into cooking and baking and for Manning and culinary arts as well as Being a cyclist so he was into bikes. Which later got into cycling and touring and also was a scientist? He was a meddler just in work for Rocketdyne and so he sort of had all those passions of Of Life and and I guess it really appealed to me so I was around fermenting beer from probably the age of Seven or eight or so And seeing things boiling on the stove every weekend when he would brew and his Senate. I were best buddies for many many years. I ended up moving up to Chico when he attended Chico State. What was your friends? what was it? What was his dad's name must name the cow Molar County since passed away But Calvin Molar He was this a very early adopter of of the. The science of brewing mortem brewers back in that day. You know. We're using English old sort of crude books on how to make cheap beer but not necessarily You know how to make great beer and had a had a do it at home with sort of a science based yeah so He approached from a scientific side. So here here's what I'm wondering you are in high school and I guess from from whatever you bought your first home brewing Kit Around that time Which I think a lot a lot more high school juniors today would put in in the early seventies certainly not early sixties. Early in common Did you did you WanNa make beer because you liked it and wanted to drink beer? Or what was the? What was the thinking behind buying a home Brooklyn When I was young so I couldn't buy beer and so I just wanted to experiment with making bear. That was it. Yeah and he'll today if you want to brew beer you just go on the Internet and order the hops come in pellets and you know wherever you need and then you just do. It was it. Was it a little more complicated than nineteen sixty-nine It was so there were actually some Homebrew supply stores just getting started. And you could buy beer and wine. Making supplies at that. Point pumping was still illegal but They did Nobody got arrested for providing mulder hops. But if you think back to that era there was still a bit of a carryover from prohibition brewing and so you could buy malt extract even at hardware stores and it was You know sold with a crock and packaging east and a little block of some pretty lousy hops. But there there were ingredients that were still available. During the prohibition era and no good information on how to make great beer home there was just For those people who wanted to brew Abacha Cold Brew. And how how? How early batches I mean were. They terrible terrible. You put them in a closet and your house. Where did you go? I had to hide. 'em Hide Him from my mother and Actually made a batch of wine. I which was pretty tragic. Which was out of welches cantwell just grape juice and some bacon east a can of grape juice cans anymore And then I got some all extract and and being. A bunch of me did a plastic bucket and and started bruin a little bit. How did you? How did you know you weren't making like you know Botulin Eum or anthrax or something? I guess one of the things about beer making is that Things like that don't grow in Beer. I got you okay. alcohol the P. H. Hops are all inhibitory to Toxins not that you can't make bad beer but it's pretty impossible to make beer those kind of toxins yet. All right so you. You're you know doing home brewing and and I guess when you Graduate High School in Nineteen seventy-two You decide that College is really going to be. You're saying that you you you WanNa Kinda just get out. La Move Up to northern California. And you go you end up in Chico California a small town in In the foothills of the Sierra Nevada the idea was that's where you want to to be for a while. Yeah I got a job at a bicycle shop which was a family owned business With the father and two sons working there in a pretty frictional environment the dynamic was not great and after less than a couple of months I sort of had to change your heart and say well maybe I should go to school and so I applied at the junior college to study chemistry and ended up eventually transferring to Chico state and continued to take science classes I met my girlfriend and then later wife Through a mutual friend about the same time this is. This is your wife. Katie that you met you met her at Butte Community College matter. She was going to Chico. State.

Does Mount Diablo Have the Biggest View in the World?

"Okay so we set out to learn if Mount. Diablo is in fact numeral dose on the list of places on Earth where you can see the most land reporter Assault Asana takes a winding road to find out. The mystery of the view from Mount. Diablo is a romantic one steeped in local legend to find out. If it's true I drove to the source itself. Six hundred feet arrive at your destination from the base of the mountain. It takes me about an hour to get to the top. Well took so long. Mount Diablo sits on the eastern edge of the Bay area in Contra Costa County. But you can see. It's double peak pyramid from most spots around the bay at three thousand eight hundred forty nine feet. The mountains view is second to none. Well it's second to one. Maybe we'll find out so the view and you come up. Here is really amazing. How it compares. To Kilimanjaro is up for debate. But I'm kind of partial to the view here from Mount Diablo and I think most people would come pretty amazed by what the view looks like my tour guide today is Sharon Peterson. Mount Diablo state parks interpreter. Which she says means her job is to tell the story of the park. Sharon takes me to the summit's viewing deck. She says the clear day. You can see forty of California's fifty eight counties from here as little as one percent of some of those counties but still this is where we walk out into the wind. I she points West so you can see the Golden Gate Bridge today. You could see both towers with the naked eye and if I give you the binoculars you can probably for sure. She whips them out and there. It is the Golden Gate Bridge Sixty miles away two towers peaking over round top in the Berkeley Hills. That's really really cool. Then we turned north and you can see the Sacramento and San Joaquin rivers forming the Delta South. It's a sweeping view of the Diablo range and livermore pleasanton and finally east or through the haze we catch a glimpse of the snow-speckled Sierra rising above the Central Valley over a hundred miles away. And I heard that you can also see Yosemite from here on a clear day you can and with binoculars you can see Sentinel Dome. There is a rumor that you can see half dumb but it's actually blocked by one of the land features in between seeing it for myself. The site is so magnificent so magical that feels like. I'm looking down at a watercolor. The only thing that compares is the view from a plane. Maybe it's possible. The Myth is true. It's absolutely not true. The Mount Diablo has the largest view in the world. Except for Mount Kilimanjaro. Seth Adams is the land conservation director at Save Mount Diablo and he spent a lot of time myth. Busting the Kilimanjaro claim. I never quite believed it. It just didn't have the ring of truth to me because it's a small mountain and common sense would tell you the taller. The mountain the bigger view but considering the myth has been repeated hundreds of times. He says it makes sense. People would believe it. Seth trace the infatuation with Diablo back to the eighteen fifties and sixties when scientists like Hosea Whitney first geologically surveyed the mountain. That's Jose Whitney of Mount Whitney the tallest mountain in the Sierra Nevada. Jose Whitney road. It is believed that there are few if any points on the earth's surface from which so extensive and area maybe seen as from Mount Diablo the whole area thus spread out can hardly be less than forty thousand square. Miles the legend snowballed from there repeated over and over for decades through the end of world. War Two a time when people really start experiencing parks and mountains. Recreationally and Mount. Diablo became a Goto tourist spot. The Kilimanjaro Claims Circulated and travel guides and hiking maps by railroad companies and Auto Associations Even Contra Costa County described it as quote the world's greatest view more territory visible than from any point in the world but as visitors flocked to Diablo for the views entrepreneur side. Chance to make a buck. More than half of Mount Diablo was locked up. Successively by two big real estate land speculators both of them printed brochures by the thousands that includes the claimed amount of having the largest boasting that claim was a smart business. Move for one developer. In nineteen seventeen he had a dream of building. Thousands of homes on Diablo's western flank and those amazing views helped push his agenda forward. Eventually the developer went bankrupt and the deal flopped. But it was too late. The brochures had done their work. Oh you can definitely credit the brochures for spreading the misinformation. But it's just too good acclaim the largest few in the world right and understand that California was a promoter's dream which brings us to another promoter the entrepreneur Walter p frick who hired a publicist to help him spread the rumor. The Mount Diablo had the greatest view on earth especially as he built an eight foot beacon tower known as the eye of Diablo but frick was working with engineers from the standard oil company and they were skeptical. Someone for the first time said come on biggest view in the entire world so after that the nineteen twenty eight standard oil bulletin added a footnote to their brochure except for a point in Africa. Clearly being Mount Kilimanjaro. From their the legend shifted from Mount Diablo having the largest few in the world to the second largest it went on like this until nineteen ninety four when it was officially debunked by an engineer slash mountaineer. Who did the math? His name was Edward Earl but he went by the nickname. Seven point three eight nine zero five six zero nine nine math joke. She said I don't believe this. And so what I'M GONNA do is. I'm going to find the problem. And I'm going to calculate view sheds for lots of other mountains and see how they compare view. Shed is the area visible from a specific vantage point including land or water. Now Remember Whitney speculated Diablo's view shed was about forty thousand square miles but according to earls calculations it's actually between thirteen and twenty one thousand. That might still sound like a lot but from other Taller Mountains. You can see more than three times as much and even for a total non mathematician like me. It kind of makes sense. Mount Kilimanjaro is five times the size of Mount Diablo so diop blow couldn't possibly have a comparable view shed even if it is an isolated peak.

Low Snowpack In California Mountains May Mean More Wildfires This Summer

"This month is shaping up to be one of the driest February's in California's history state. Water officials said today that snow pack across the Sierra Nevada is measuring less than half of. What's normal for this time of year? That matters to skiers and snowboarders but more critically sunny skies in the winter could mean more wildfires. Come summer and fall from member station K. Q. E. D. in San Francisco. Peter Cooney reports armed with aluminum survey polls and electric sensors hydrologist in California flocked to the Sierra Nevada. Each winter to measure snowpack. That's because about a third of the state's annual water supply for drinking and agriculture gets stored as snow than when the south starts to melt in the late spring early summer. That water will hopefully slowly meltoff and replenish the water. That is Held IN OUR RESERVOIRS. Chris. Orrick is with the California Department of Water Resources. He says the dry winter is in stark contrast to last year there was probably one of the wettest. February's we've ever had some areas in the Sarah accumulated up to fifty feet of snow whereas this year in the majority of the Central Valley Northern California. We had a little to no measurable Precipitation Silver Lining Or. It says is that the state's reservoirs still have plenty of water. Thanks to all the snow and rain from last year while officials aren't ready to declare a drought a dry winter can signal an early start to California's wildfire season which has devastated parts of the state in recent years. The massive car fire Mendocino complex the atlas tubs fires campfire is now the most destructive fire in state history given two fires that are close enough to one another that essentially is one incident and this fire is a monster it is the low snowpack is an important insurance policy to protect against wildfire says. Jonah bots glue. He's a climatologist with the University of California merced set so that snow melts provides a gradual source of moisture keeping those fuels in our forces areas Wet later into the spring and early summer so when we don't have the snowpack in place when we have a subpar snowpack. Those fuels are allowed to green up and actually dry out earlier in the year and that says about to glue sets the stage for an early start to fire season so California's certainly has seen longer fire seasons lasting both later in the fall and starting early in the spring and unfortunately the lack of precipitation across the state. We've basically struck out during the two wettest months of the year. A spokesman for CAL. Fire the agency responsible for fire. Prevention in California says that the current dry windy conditions have already contributed to more wildfires than usual this winter but fire officials and water managers point out that California's wet season isn't over yet. They're hoping for a repeat of twenty eighteen when a series of March storms. Replenish the snowpack in time for the spring runoff

A Sneak Peek of the Wild & Scenic Film Festival

"What is the wild and scenic film festival? It's it sounds like a bunch of hippies drinking up in Nevada Vada city. You're not wrong The Wild and scenic film festival is a opportunity for filmmakers and activists from around the world to come together to tell the stories that they care most about About protecting the environment. And this is your first podcast so low right you. You had all the equipment you went up you. You didn't know who you can exactly interview. What was it like Well it was exciting I did lose my phone with all the recordings on it for a period of about twelve of hours but luckily thanks to the The kind hearted people in Nevada city. I was able to get my my phone back with all these interviews. So crisis averted so Nevada city is like the heart of the like eighteen fifties goldrush right the forty niners that that's where everything happened is amazing when you go there because it looks looks like this old gold town. That's right it's it's right in the Sierra foothills in it it does look like and feel like in some ways that you're going back in time and and Melinda The Executive Director of the South you've ever citizens league tells us a little bit about Nevada city and history in the ways in which the Yuba river in particular has really shape the town cool so his Sarah talking with Melinda booth. Who's responsible for bringing this huge festival together every year? Uh So this film festival is now in its eighteenth year and it's an environmental an adventure film based festival here in Nevada city and Grass Valley California. So we're we're in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains about halfway between Sacramento and Lake Tahoe and we had some beautiful snow last night. Blanketing our town. But it's sunny and melting and we're ready for the eight thousand people that are going to come to our small foothills town for this. Annual event. So South River Citizens League we affectionately refer to ourselves by our acronym circle was founded back in nineteen ninety-three and a bunch of concerned citizens came together when dams were proposed on the South Yuba River and they decided that's not what they wanted for the river in their community and they banded together and fought those dams over sixteen years. It was a sixteen year long fight but they were ultimately successful in protecting the river by by achieving California State designation for wild and scenic status for thirty nine miles to the south you bought which permanently protects it this community really is all about the Yuba River. It's an economic driver for us. It's a place of renewal. It's a place of recreation. It's habitat refuge. It's definitely one of the most scenic rivers in California cornea and you have these beautiful smooth granite boulders. You have these emerald waters you have deep pools. It's relatively warm in the summer and it's a magical place. There's more folks who enjoy the river naked than clothed but. Tell us a little bit about the film festival. I see that the Tagline is where activism gets inspired tired so back in nineteen ninety nine. One circled did achieve that wild and scenic status for the river they were to crossroads and decided You know they achieved what they set out to to do. And so then the question was okay well organization done. Did we reach our goal or is there more to do and they quickly realized that. Gosh there's so much more to do. Circles mission is to unite the community to protect and restore the river. And there's lots of work to be done year round so we're focusing on that mission throughout the entire watershed so from the headwaters waters up at sugarbush ski resort if people know the area that's near the headwaters all the way down to the confluence with the feather river in Marysville the founders of the film festival were very very forward thinking and realized if they could create something that could create a sustainable funding source to help the organization that would be a real help to achieving in our mission and so wild and scenic film festival was created. It was of course named after the win of wild and scenic status and it started as two nights heights and one venue back in two thousand and three and it's grown here in twenty twenty to take place in two towns. We have venues and grass valley and Nevada city. It's five days as we have ten film venues. We have activists workshops we have celebrations. We have virtual reality lounge. We have an environmental art exhibition. There's really a whole lot. Outgoing on does the film festival travel and are there ways for people that live elsewhere to enjoy the festival and enjoy these films. Yes so we kick it off every year in January January here in the foothills in Nevada city grass valley in January but then we hit the road and we take these films on tour so you might see a wild and scenic event near you we have about two hundred and fifty events annually reaching more than sixty five thousand people with these inspiring stories and you can search for an event in your area and if there's not one you can be a host so what we do which I think is really incredible. Is We're actually partnering with Environmental Organizations. Really any kind of organization who want it to host a festival in their area so that they can raise awareness for issues in their community and raise funds for the work that they're doing so it's a really cool partnership a way to get these films seen inspire more people and really Increase the groundswell for the environmental movement. As a whole I love that Can you give us an example or tells Tulsa story about maybe the most inventive or unusual way that people have brought the wild and scenic film festival to their community. I love it when people do outdoor screenings screenings. It's really great so we have some folks in Florida with their shoes off toes in the sand. Watch these films at night outside so one of the cool things about living in Sacramento obviously is the Sacramento River. And I've always had this dream of going being from reading down to the sea. One of the cool movies that you've got to see them super jealous about is cold the Sacramento at current speed and these guys go in that story story which is a teeny little boat and floated down and you go to catch up with them. Tell us about Tom and Mitch. Thomason mentor great to me. They really exemplify the film festival which his in many cases transforming what we might consider to be ordinary people. That didn't you know. Set their careers to be filmmakers or even necessarily activists who fell in love with place and wanted to tell that story to others. And that's exactly what happened with Mitch and Tom. They would go out occasionally with each other with their wives on the river and in came to be Really compelled by the river and wanting to protect it and so they made this film Which ended up winning the twenty twenty people's Choice Award a really beautiful film and Really Beautiful Film and story and I thought it was special to that. Of course the Sacramento River flows through Sacramento so we've paddled on it and Goes through the very place where a lot of decisions about water in the entire state are made so just a lot of Nice different connections with this one. Sara Fest Out Utah With Mitch Dion and then with Tom Bottles who made the Sacramento at current speed. Which won the People's Choice Award The wild and scenic Film Festival Mitch starts by explaining how the idea for the film was launched? A was just looking for a place to row my boat down a river. I Love Rivers. I really like my little dory boat and I live in truckee aunt kind of stumbled on the Sacramento as a place to do some overnight trips without having to drive halfway across the country to Utah. Colorado or Idaho so Several years ago my wife and I didn't overnight trip on a section of the upper for Sacramento where we through our bikes into the boats camped overnight and they invite the shuttle back up to the car and we had so much fun. And we were so enamored with with what we found down there that I started doing longer trips. and Um Tom and I done lots of adventures together. But we've never took advantage Jeff. Our professional lives. He's a videographer and has made lots of films so I started telling her friends. It's about the project down here on the Sacramento and Tom's ears perked up and he said found sounds very well. Maybe you should make a movie of IT and So just hopped in my boat and Loaded up with camera gear and some food and crackers and smoke cheese and took off below reading and Started in a two week journey down the SACRAMENTO Some of which I done before and below Qaluza all the way down into the Delta was was unknown unknown you. I know that people navigate this piece of river all the time but whether we could actually row it and make it out there we really have. I've no idea all heard that the winds were extreme down there that Might be a really difficult journey. And Good Luck. What is it that you wanted to share with people the Sacramento River? The big thing is this water belongs to all of us and people may not realize that it's public domain. It's the water is supposed has to be managed to use for the use that's most beneficial to the most number Californians and you know we know that's a simple concept and after after that everything gets really complicated because a lot of give and take in tug of war but we need to be wake watch. What's happening attention to what's going on Out there because it belongs to all of

Barred Owls Invade the Sierra Nevadas

"Barred owl has a very distinctive call. That's the one that goes who cooks for you. Connor would is a conservation biologist and apply to colleges at the University of Wisconsin Wisconsin Madison. Who happens to do a pretty great barred owl impression himself. Who barred owls are native to the eastern US but in the last century? They've crossed the great great plains flooded into Canada and taking up roost in the Pacific northwest. Where they're a major threat to northern spotted. Owls barred owls are bigger and more aggressive than SPA. Ah Dollars and so far have been able to. Basically drive spotted owls out of their preferred nesting areas and also. Because they're more flexible than what they eat. There can be lots more bartels on landscape in now they're invading. The Sierra Nevada mountains further south the native range of the California spotted owl and the big question. Question was what is the size of the population there. And how fast is it growing to answer. That wouldn't team deployed audio recorders. Roughly a thousand locations uh-huh throughout twenty three hundred square miles of the northern Sierra Nevada. And they listened for two years. Collecting the faint calls of spotted. Owls barred owls house to in total. They gathered two hundred thousand hours worth of audio. Pretty daunting seeing. It all accumulate a- and knowing we had to make something intelligible out of algorithms that comb the audio for our call's helped make sense of it all and through models. The researchers were able to estimate estimate who was living in those forests barbells or spotted owls in approximately how many of them there were the key. Finding is that barred. Owls occupied about eight percent of the the northern. Sierra Nevada landscape and twenty seventeen but that jumps to twenty one percent in two thousand eighteen. So that's a two point six fold increase in just one year ear and on one hand. That's really worrying because it suggests that that bartell population has begun to grow really rapidly and thus pose direct immediate threat the California's byd l.. But the other hand. It's really exciting. Because this means we've caught the problem early and actually have a chance to do something about it. Most biological logical invasions really aren't fully identified until it's too late. The results are in the Journal. Condor ornithological applications would and his team advised that it might be necessary. Sorry to take lethal action. Remove the barred owls before they wipe out California spotted. Owls assuming that is we. Give about two spotted. Owls continued survival.

"Sierra Nevada dot com this is All Things Considered from NPR news how Michelle Martin this week the house of representatives will conduct another round of public hearings and private interviews the president trump's alleged dealings with Ukraine as they consider whether his conduct merits impeachment among the witnesses scheduled to testify publicly our lieutenant colonel Alexander vin vent and you crane expert at the National Security Council and Gordon samba and the United States ambassador to the European Union the first public witness testimony is painted a vivid portrait of a group of longtime diplomats struggling to understand back channels with direct access to the president and it was new information about that including a previously unknown call to president trump that took place in a restaurant and that's a lot to digest so we've been asking listeners to send us questions that you have about any aspect of the impeachment process so we can try to answer them this week we've called upon Jeffrey angle to help us with that he is the founding director of the center for presidential history at Southern Methodist University and he's one of the co authors of impeachment an American history professor angle thank you so much for joining us look for god sake so so first of all where are we in the process if you could just you know help us understand you know where we are in this whole impeachment process you know if you want to use a baseball analogy were about in the second inning we're still in the investigative stage were still in the state where the house committees are trying to discover if there was a problem and if so what the problem was so really we're still in the acquiring information stage at this point so let's get into some of the questions from our listeners much like last week people still have a lot of questions about process so Kevin would in Arizona for example asks what happens if the people with first hand knowledge like John Bolton like Mick Mulvaney who is the acting white house chief of staff is also the head of the office of management and budget continue to refuse to testify can they somehow be compelled to the short answer is we don't know there's a lot of things for the house can do to try to compel people to testify even going so far as having the sergeant Barnes go and arrest them and for them into the house jail they could also file lawsuits they can also file civil suit but the truth the matter is if the justice department doesn't want to prosecute some of the lawsuits that pic house might bring they don't have to and so the big picture here is we don't know what's going to happen because this is Miss setting ourselves up for one of the biggest constitutional crises we ever had you know I I I like to go back to the when the founders created the system of government that we have to remind people that the way you learned about in school is probably wrong in that you probably learned of it as a separation of powers three power separate what you should have been taught is that's a competition of powers they each branch of the government is supposed to be competing against each other trying to grasp more power trying to take more power we from each other Sabine growth asks why on earth is this going behind closed doors again I think she's referring to the fact that well this coming week there will be both public testimonies again there are still a closed door depositions taking place why is that you know this this one I think you don't have to worry about because this one is explained by the fact that they're taking these things behind closed doors for two primary reasons the first is you always get a better interview when you're doing it behind closed doors because you don't have Congress people grandstanding for the cameras the second reason is you do behind closed doors in a secure environment in case any national security information leaks out you don't want that to come out in a public forum but the key thing to remember is that all the relevant evidence that is discussed in private is going to alternately be discussed in public really just gives away for the proposed sites to think about how they want to frame questions and ask for information great example you know one the most critical moments in the Watergate hearings as when we discovered that president Nixon had a secret taping system an audio taping system change the entire dynamic of the entire scandal what we only found that out because of a person was asked the question in private session and then three days later once the people who are asking the questions knew the answer they asked that same person the same question in public so that everybody could see him answer the question even though they had actually discovered the answer in private so really it's it's all about trying to find out how to get the best information and then subsequently how to make the best appearance for the public John Flores wants to know what happens after the impeachment hearings have been completed what steps follow well here's where things get really fun the constitution is extraordinarily clear on how to impeach the president and remove their authority the constitution is utterly silent about how to remove the president from physically the White House does it say if the Congress passes a resolution of impeachment which are then subsequently approved by the Senate and a two thirds vote the vice president will then immediately become the president what we don't know is what the former president in this case for president trump will do in that case he doesn't necessarily have to believe that he needs to honor that order he could go on Twitter and ask his followers to come some of them anyway to come to Washington to help him out and we really don't know because we've never gone down the road of actually having a present removed from office we know how to do this in a legal sense in a technical sense the real world practicalities of this I've never been tried before so before we let you go what I assume you've been following this as a as a person who's us as a scholar of this process what are you looking at as you follow this proceeding you know I'm I'm looking at the the bipartisanship or the other lack there of in the in the in the Watergate case the Democrats were in charge of the committee's Peter Rodino from New York in particular made a big point of saying everything needs to be bipartisan we have to get Republican by and for everything and they did because they're also Republicans who were willing to say you know what there's a lot of smoke there maybe we need to investigate if there's any fire so I'm really amazed and looking for at this point to see whether there is any one across either rile who's willing to move across either I'll just say I value my constitutional authority in my constitutional duty more than my partisan leanings we saw that in Watergate we did not so much see the in Clinton and I'm curious to see if we're going to see it going for with president trump that is just the angle he's founding director of the center for presidential history at Southern Methodist University and co author of impeachment an American history we reached him in Dallas professor Michael thank you so much for talking with us thank you good luck to you the first two public hearings in the impeachment inquiry this week generated a lot of online response as you might expect but we wondered if the hearing also generated a new round of online disinformation that is today's topic for a regular segment we call troll watch we're joined now by someone who is always on the lookout for the spread of misleading information on the web.

We're here live every Saturday evening from five pm to seven pm taking a look back at some of the big stories of the week. And the look ahead of what's coming up. We had the this past week the state of the union address by President Trump. It was very popular three out of four people pulled right after that speech liked it liked what he had to say. Unless of course, you're Nancy Pelosi not so much. Bernie Sanders looking grim. Alexandria, Cossio Cortez. Not happy. Speaking of her this past week. She unveiled or details of the green new plan free college healthcare, no more planes. How 'bout that? We're going to get into that and much more in the next two hours. A lot to get.

We are told that said this may not be the end of it for this week. I wanna get you caught up on some of the predictions that we are hearing from the national weather service computer models now showing a growing likelihood of an atmospheric river storm hitting California late next week. Which could raise concerns that this pineapple express. And that's what I've always known as the pineapple express. Some now calling it atmospheric river storm. But I mean, essentially, it's it's the same thing it's barreling in.

"To eight right here on KFI PK radio. Fifteen thirty AM and ninety three point one FM. Barry. It's so different and some of our other reservoirs, you take it doesn't matter which one along the east side of the valley, if it's Orrville or fulsome or party or command cheer new Maloney's. It's all fed by snow melt. Comes from the high Sierra Nevada's well at Barry essay, it's the coast range. It's not a lot of snow, man. I mean there, you know, you get up on Cobb mountain, and there's going to be snow, but it doesn't have the snow runoff that. The Sierra Nevada's do and therefore states will warmer, and then it gets coal once in a while. But the whole bottom line is it's going to provide a little bit better fishing in winter. Then a lot of the lakes on the other side. Now, you can just shut my mouth because Shasta lake is got four major rivers coming into it mostly rainwater runoff, but they're fishing is good right now. So hey, your rules are made to be broken. But thinking specifically of Folsom and Barry, Barry is going to be a better winner fishery. And I talked to Luke Luke Popovich yesterday about that fishery. Look last time we talk about lake Barry Esa. It had come up a little bit. And it had clouded up a little bit. And while normally that might not be a bad thing. It didn't seem to do the fishing any good. What's happened since then? Well, since then the water came up a little bit more came up a couple of feet more. And after this last week it got super super cold actually dropped the water temperature even more about two degrees. But it doesn't seem like that much for those fish. That's that's a. You know, in the crazy thing is is I was out there this week, and it actually seemed to make the bite better seem to be catching more fishing, even bigger. Fish doesn't make any sense sometimes doesn't I think the my one explanation would be. For the fish. We never really had a true winter.

In fact, twenty years ago, we had the Northridge quake. So you know, the earth is shaking and radar blips. From Illinois Kentucky, Florida, Maine, in fact, again, they're saying this could be chaff. But then again, this is the second time we've seen this and people wonder what the hell's going on. So. It's been a crazy day, actually. Oh, and Alexa goes rogue. Some of them have ignored commands. They won't turn off. They're going crazy. Something happening right now. Something crazy is happening in the world. Right. It's just you know, when you do a show like mine, I really really stop and think about the future. You're not just my future. But. The future of our country. The future of the world we're going through time. How are we going through time? What are we doing? As we go through time. And there are many people who believe in long term planning for the future. Some even say that it is a sign of maturity to have long-term planning. I know that at times. When I talk about prepare with ground zero dot com, which is the place to go. If you want to get a good deal on some food storage. It's about seventy five dollars for two weeks prepared with ground zero dot com. Go there people say, oh, you're pushing this, and I'm not a preparation who's gonna want to eat food after the apocalypse. And I just don't think they get it. You know, it's like you go, and you get this food the last twenty five years, in fact, somebody just made a big deal the other day about some macaroni and cheese. It lasts like twenty five years. And it's in a tub, I read this the other day, it said, top macaroni and cheese. The last twenty five years, I thought it was just a big tub of macaroni and cheese opened up and you eat it for twenty five years. No, it's a little packets. It's the same thing as what we're. What we sell at at this with the prepared with ground zero the same thing. Patriots. My patriot supply. And they're the ones that provide some really good stuff. And it was just a deal that I said, hey, I just want to see something good. I saw something. Good and thought, hey, I just want to give this stuff a try. We have in the office is pretty amazing. Planning ahead is a sign of maturity being prepared as a sign of maturity, it means that you care you see things around you you act and you prepare. And you know in reality. Most members of society tend to look down upon short-term thinking admire those who have a visionary. Visionary goals for a secure future. However, there are still those who have a hard time figuring out what they wished to do in the next ten minutes. Let alone in the next ten years. Throughout the nearly two decades of the twentieth century planning for the long term has literally stalled because of the doomsayers it seemed to get our attention in science and religion. So the question is the question that needs to be asked in the year. Twenty one thousand nine is how far in the future is it reasonable to plan. Should we count on a future that will be relatively easy to plan for or should we believe that we live in a time of catastrophe and collapse. Now, I was reading an article about global warming today, and my mind started really, I I'm not a supporter of the so-called settled science because it appears that it has been hijacked by political near wells, which to exploit a climate apocalypse in order to form a dialogue for a world government for state, socialist agenda. Early. The United Nations is made plans for you and me and that is by twenty thirty. The green economy will be implemented and by twenty fifty we should all be grateful that due to our servitude being overtaxed and redistributing the world wealth, we should be able to reverse the effects of our so-called environmental abuses. Right. Okay. Well, there have been some other lofty goals for the future. Some of them. We will never see in our lifetime by the end of the twentieth century. The Chan Zuckerberg initiative aims were all human diseases to be cured prevented or managed, and he LAN musk want to self sustaining colony on Mars within the within the next one hundred years.
