Twenty years of climate extremes
"The year two thousand and twenty was always going to be a tantalizing horizon for future thinkers even at symmetry conjures the clear-sightedness and precision of twenty twenty vision. Too which policymakers in resist manages. Always aspire twenty years ago. Most of southern australia was still in the group of the millenium drought. The dry conditions broke records around the nation. Perth stems where their lowest. Since the first world war and the southeast of the country was on its way to the dryest shania period since recordkeeping began as the bureau of meteorology. Put it at the time. This was the nation's first climate change drought. That observation came hot. On the heels of the third assessment report of the intergovernmental panel on climate change which made headlines around the world with this conclusion that there is new and stronger evidence that most of the global warming observed over the last fifty years is attributable to human activities if suburban households become complacent about the household woody's than the drought was a wakeup call across the nation. Education campaigns and water saving devices joined water restrictions in an effort to ease pressure on limited urban water supplies in melbourne for instance the voluntary target. One five five campaign aimed more than half the daily water consumption of residents by encouraging shorter showers while imposing strict limits on watering gardens washing the car. Brisbane went even further aiming to reduce residential would consumption to one hundred and forty liters of water per person per day. The rain water tank in grey water. Recycling became suburban. Must haves offering the means to keep gardens green in trying conditions as the damn levels so lower and lower state governments turned desalination with perth leading the way in two thousand six a prospect that was unthinkable just a decade earlier other states took notice and before long desalination plants were on the drawing board for the gold coast sydney melbourne and adelaide. But for the most part by the time those projects were completed. The rains had returned to the east coast and the plants built. There were dismissed as wipe elephants journalist. Chris noticed this change in the weather himself as he reflected in the updated edition of his book on the murray darling basin in two thousand and ten browsing through his local bookshop. He'd realized that he's book. The river somehow migrated from the environment and ecology section where. It's just six months ago to a new place on the history shows even so this record linear rainfall that broke the millenium. Drought did not turn back the clock. A drying trend continued across the south of the continent particularly in the southwest. Where winter rains had been in decline since the nineteen seventies julian part to human induced climate change indeed while eastern australia record high levels of rainfall in late twenty ten and in twenty eleven perth and much of southwestern austrailia experienced record dry weather. This is just some of the challenges of planning for both climate variability and climate change on a continent of extremes. It's been looking ahead into the future. That's being one of the ways in which ustralian have long tried to come to terms with this continent of extreme climate variability in twenty eleven. The climate commission released its first report declaring that australia was facing the critical decade back. Then of course. The climate commission was a federal government body established under the gillard government but it was dissolved under the abbott government. Soon after its election in two thousand thirteen the decade to twenty twenty. The climate commission's report argued was critical in terms of meeting the two degrees celsius guardrail by curbing emissions of carbon dioxide in the decade to twenty twenty global emissions had to be well on track to reaching by twenty fifty to limit the planet's warming taking the temperature on the nation's progress towards this goal in twenty seventeen the climate council the independent body that rose from the ashes of the climate commission declared that australia was now known as global climate lagged already the concentration of carbon dioxide emissions had tipped over four hundred parts per million higher than at any other time for millions of us and the planet's temperature was over one degree higher than temperatures before the industrial revolution of the eighteenth century. The report warned that the window of opportunity to limit worsening climate impacts is closing and already climate events were getting worse pointing not only to bush fires and hate waves but also to drought and drying across the south of the continent. Just as the gun. I report of two thousand. Eight and countless other scientific studies had predicted two thousand and nineteen was the driest year since records began in one thousand nine hundred and it was the country's warmest year in fact all these since two thousand thirteen are among the ten warmest on record australia. The impact of climate changes lead to longer more intense fire seasons and an increase in the average number of elevated fire weather days as measured by the forest fire danger index twenty nine thousand nine so the highest cumulated index on record fires have burned before an australian but never like those we saw over the summer. It's called comfort knowing that this disaster was nice surprise after all the two thousand eight garner report warned that fire seasons will start earlier and the slightly lighter and generally be more intense. This effect increases over time but should be directly observable by twenty twenty in another ten to twenty years time 2019 white. Be so unusual. Although this use emissions might be lower thanks to the covid lockdowns and the air might be cleaner. The concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere like carbon dioxide continues to rise and the period two thousand sixteen to twenty twenty looks set to be the warmest five year period on record. Unfortunately a few months of slowing down can't make up for the decades upon decades of greenhouse gas emissions that have accumulated in the atmosphere. He street is weighing heavily on the planet's climate future.

That Time I Broke The Law
"I'm answering my question. I right yeah. Yeah so this. This happened years ago. And i don't know that i even really understand what happened. But i tell this story to my audience in various places on instagram and the podcast. And it's the story of where. I made a mistake on multiple levels. I mean i made a mistake in decision making stake in potentially violating regulations. Which maybe you can help. Straighten me out on a real quickly. The the story was. I was doing a charity flight for my daughter's school in which i had rented a very fancy airplane and a couple that was wealthier than i had been money for me to go. Take them on a sunset flight and run over the san francisco bay and doing my thing and i do it once a year so i have the route pretty much down. I know exactly where i can fly. It'll be one hour on the hobbs. It's not gonna break my wallet and they're all they're going to be very happy and here. I was coming around the east side of the bay. I had to transition the oakland class. Charlie so i arranged flight following with nor cal approach and i had flown through the charlie so i was no longer in the charlie. I'm flying echo. Airspace pointed essentially southeast. And i want. I wanted to turn to the west because that was where i needed to go to get back to the home base and have this be one hour and air traffic control. Says you know turn left which is not the way i want to turn left heading zero zero so i understand why they have arrival traffic. I can see a lot of that traffic. I'm situationally aware. I'm listening to the radio. But i'm headed now in the entirely. You know the opposite i to be going and they're taking me pretty far out and i fly this way just keeping my mouth shut for a little while until finally i say you know what i'm just going to terminate radar service because i know what they need. I'm gonna get low. I'm going to go back in your class. Echo airspace go straight to the delta tower. And i said to him you know. We'd like to request the termination of radar service to which they said unable and i've never heard that before ever and we can come back to it but one question is are they. Are they legally able to say that. I can't terminate radar service which is an optional service. And so i. I fly that way a bit longer. And then here's a probably the first real mistake. I made this hazardous attitude in these sort of flares. Up this anti authority attitude and against what i would say his better judgment. I just said you know what. I'm going to turn off the radio squad. Twelve hundred and go straight to the tower. So i switched the frequency. I squad one zero zero and maneuver at a low altitude back to the class delta tower and on landing i leave the runway taxi clear the runway and the tower says we have a possible pilot. I have a phone number. Advise ready to copy you get that sinking feeling in your stomach at that point right. Yeah i think the sinking feeling started before that. But yeah this was definitely Because flying back. I realized this is not the way to behave and not the way to fly anyway. I i pull off the runway. I write down the phone number and And i tell my students this as story so for anybody is listening. Hasn't heard that story. I use an example of how those hazardous rivoli live inside of us. It's not like you meet somebody who there's the macho guy. Ooh there's the anti-authority guy You know under the right pressure in the right circumstance we all should be aware of these possible hazardous attitudes that have known to show themselves as patterns in the industry and things that can really affect all of us including me. I'm not immune. And i'm thinking this through as i tie up the airplane in the couple goes home and i'm cool myself down. I remember the new compliance philosophy which is another thing that i teach my students that the faa has a has a compliance philosophy. That's no longer a subjective thing. It's written down its policy. They are going to work to offer remediation before they slap a penalty on you in theory. So after i calm down i call the air. Traffic control centre. I dialed the number the The trae kind facility there. And i asked for the control. Hey this is the pilot of whatever my end number was. I'd like to talk to the controller. I got advised of a possible deviation and they said oh yeah oh hang on and this guy you know gets on the phone and just start reading the riot act you know really really cutting loose. Do you know how dangerous that was. And the planes and you could have been all these things. I could've done and i just quietly listened to him and let him get all that stuff out and at the end of it all. I just said you know what you're right. And i'm wrong and i thank you for that remediation and i promise this will never happen again in you know i apologize essentially no. I didn't talk them. I didn't tell them how many years i've been flying in the area and tell them that. I thought i knew what he wanted or any of that. I just took it on the chin and apologized and that diffused the situation and he said okay. You know that's okay. And he hung up the phone. And i suppose you never escalated. Because i never heard from a physio or anything like that and you know i guess my i guess my real question is can he do that. Can you tell me that. I can't terminate radar service. Yeah and there. There's a lot to unpack there. So i'm i'm going to help you peel the onion on it First of all that was a great synopsis of what happened to avoid burying the lead. Yes the short answer is yes. Class echo is controlled. Airspace and a t. Ken give you you know headings instructions and they can tell you what to do and what not to do and of course as pilot in command. You're the ultimate responsible responsible party for the flight and needed to to meet the needs of emergency. You can deviate from any regulation in part ninety one including for atc instruction but again the short answer is yes even though you didn't have to be talking to him at all When you chose to enter the system and beyond flight following in controlled airspace and class echo in this case you are subject to following those instructions and so he was within his rights to do it. He did just as as the bait. That's the starting point the baseline for this analysis all right. I've never was the first time i've ever ever heard a controller. Say that but it's good to know that it wasn't no he wasn't you know he wasn't outside of his lane. I will say it is rare. It is not well known. I mean you've been instructing for a long time. And i think there's a lot of pilots who are very experienced who might not know this in a in a way. It's a bit counter intuitive. Because you could have said. I'm just going to squawk twelve hundred this whole time and be you know cruise fat dumb and happy and get back before that you know hob sticks to the our But you know. And i'm i'm a big proponent of flight following flying afar myself I'm i'm requesting flight following you know if atc you can offer at work load permitting But it can put you in that situation and you could unexpectedly get an atc. Instruction that you didn't you didn't know that they could or or would give you. Yeah it's interesting interesting and sorry. What one quick thing. I don't want to forget. There is actually a legal interpretation about this from. Faa's

Feeder Birds With Emma Greig
"Watching them feeding them all on the rise this year So i suspect you had an uptick In in participation you this year with feeder. Watch with when i say this year i mean last fall through late this winter. Yeah there were more people than ever watching their feeders. And normally cedar watch is a program that runs from november through early april. But if you remember this past spring we were all stuck at home a lot more than usual so we went ahead and extended. The feeder watched season until the end of april. And so many people wrote to us saying thank you for extending the season and they submitted so many more checklist so i think that with all of us spending a lot more time at home. People are really starting to appreciate even more. The birds at are around their homes. None of the bird. Send thank you notes to you. I just the feeder watchers. And that the numbers i mean the number of of americans who are birdwatchers. And then i don't know i think the last ones i read were like two thousand sixteen numbers like forty five million watchers and no one point eight billion dollars spent on equipment and i can't remember how much on bird seed but it was more than that even i think wasn't it. It's like four nine or yeah exactly and billions of dollars spent on birds the and and gardening supplies for birds. So it's really a very popular pass time but a really wonderful too because what's better than connecting with the nature. That's right out your window right and so you're extending again this year Season a we may. We haven't fully decided yet. But i can reason why we couldn't keep it open through the end of april but but i don't know for sure yet don't know for sure. Okay all right so so. I love looking at sort of you know that me to do i. How do i compare to other. People are seeing that sense of community that can provide when i look at the data. You have this wonderful website. And i'm going to give lots of links to that. We'll talk about some of the aspects. I love looking at always. Look i and you just sent out the winter news Sort of the the postseason newsletter and had the top twenty five bird you know highlights and i thought maybe we could start there like some of the top twenty. Five words like for instance. I'm in the northeast cornell the northeast maybe we start there some highlights and then southeastern whatever a couple of things that were interesting to you that were in the data. Yeah yeah every year. We summarize all of the data from the past year and Right guess you would call it a newsletter called winterberg highlights dan we do what's called a regional roundup and so in that we sort of pick out some cool that show up in the data And so in the northeast region past year. One of the things that i noticed as i was looking through data was That northern flickers are becoming a little bit more. Abundant in the northeast. Then in the southeast so is a little bit of shift in the range of these flickers. So that's one thing that just popped up from looking at the trend graph that we have on the website. I then look at to write this report. So you know who knows exactly why that's happening could be changes in habitat changes in climate. But this is just one species and air lots to look at online and billy can make your own discoveries yeah the eastern bluebirds and so flickers made the top twenty five in the northeast for the first time i think in the thirty something years but eastern bluebirds didn't make the top twenty five but i think you're noting an uptick in them. Some areas to is that right in the southeast eastern bluebirds are continuing to increase their becoming more and more abundant in backyard. And they're warm adapted species so it makes sense that as our winters become more mild in the eastern part of the continent. These warm adapted species become more common. So it's true for eastern bluebirds. It's true for species. Like chipping sparrows. And you might notice. Also carolina wrens coming to your backyard more than they used to. Those are issues that are really on the rise in the eastern part of the continent.

"Messaging of the American dream with Latinos. We moved here because of the American dream. We still believe that the American dream works works. We still believe in it. Not only do we believe in it. A lot of us have lived it and we're very close to it. My parents who moved here from Dominican Republic. have a ninth grade. Education moved to the Bronx had three girls and here. I am as an advisor advisor to the first african-american nominee for governor right. That story happens in America and it is so recent for Latinos in Florida. The folks at forward Florida action aren't just talking to people who Democrats have traditionally done well with like Black Brown and young voters. They're are also organizing and more conservative communities many of which are growing as more people from around the country keep retiring there. What we have seen is the migration trends and coming into the state are coming more from the Midwest instead of from the northeast so we have this sixty five plus population relation? That's growing so in the past ten years or so. That population has grown about thirty two percent. And it's Florida right. Everyone's coming here to retire. And and they're reliable consistent voters super voters. Unfortunately these kinds of voters tend to show up for Republicans making a a lot of these areas reliably red rosy doesn't expect Democrats to flip a lot of these redder counties but she knows the party can't afford to avoid them. We need to to be present everywhere not just in an reliably blue precincts and so working. In Red Counties. There's a blue wave coalition group that has popped up all over the state. It's a great group of organized. Blame in that are really doing the work and end hosting trainings and organizing their areas. As they've said to me there are Democrats here. They're just scared to say they're Democrats because they you don't know where any other Democrats are so creating spaces in some of these red counties where folks can see each other. They can be in community Nydia together Organiz together. And you know we're not naive. We're not GONNA win those places and that's okay but we just need to lose less in those places places. That is how bottle one Florida like. I said it's a one percent state so every little bit counts lose less register more talk show up early listen closely and do whatever it takes to persuade. People that voting can make a difference in their lives. Even if they're big issue is a local trash heap. That smells MELBA. It's not easy to do. But Rosie is hopeful. We're also seeing a lot of young people that are energized and getting being involved. We saw that in the Gillam race. We're seeing you know the Parkland students that have really created a movement here with activism. Awesome so you know. I don't buy the idea that you cannot run as a progressive in the south. I think that and we saw with Andrew Gillum campaign someone who ran true to his values who was unapologetic about them and he got closer than any. Democrat has gotten in decades to becoming governor of Florida as a black man. So okay you know I think that yes. We didn't get there but we got closer than ever and I think that's for a reason that reason is the incredible work done by people like Rosie and Gina and Patrick to broaden the number and kind of people who participate in their own democracy and despite all the heartbreak and disappointment that comes with a close loss. Even the outcome wasn't fair Stacey. Abrams reminds us that the struggle is always worthwhile. When our campaign came to on end the question that I had to grapple with was my inability to win despite doing all the things we were supposed to to do how I handled? The aftermath was going to determine how people felt about their participation. And that's why on election night when the Associated Press didn't call the election. My speech was not about whether I want. My speech was about making every vote counted because when voter or suppression is most effective. It's when it looks like it's too hard to fight because when the most pernicious and intentional pieces. Is that supposed to depress you supposed to convince you. It's not worth it. My mission is to make certain that people who are often kept out of the body politic politics ventured in that they recognize that. This wasn't a failure of the system alone. It was the failure of people in the system. Some who don't want to hear from them and the only way to beat them is to be louder than them. That's the mission and I'm still fighting about this. Not because there's a job job waiting for me if I do it but because I believe that they wouldn't have done this if there wasn't something good on the other side.

I six ninety six fix the owner of electro plating services in Madison Heights. seventy-seven-year-old Gary Sayers reported to federal prison over the weekend on one felony count from before this leakage of illegally storing hazardous materials. He'll be in a minimum security facility. In morgantown West Virginia the gunk has been leaking into the ground for for a while. Just east of the I seventy five and six ninety six interchange and although there was according to the environmental protection agency a two million dollar cleanup that began in June of two thousand seventeen. It's clear now that it wasn't completely contained to say the least at the time inspectors found hundreds of corroded drums vats in in containers with hazardous waste electroplating services had been using the site since nineteen sixty seven leaving behind sodium cyanide hexavalent chromium. TC and lead up until their closure in two thousand sixteen so quick thought and we plan on having experts on the show to talk about the impact just not to to the immediate area but but frankly the region as we often forget when it comes to nature were kind of all connected but what is with this opposed cleanup job. It seems so far or that this guy did in fact plead guilty to a felony and that there was a massive cleanup. If this place is leaked what else around town is leaking. The Detroit region is full of companies from our automotive past. That worked with pretty nasty stuff. Would we have ever found this. If it wasn't next to a free way I mean look this green ooze seems seems like a plot point from a badly written teenage mutant Ninja Turtles Movie. It's just something to think about. Target is the target of a stealing spree. See that's hit four locations in Metro Detroit stores and Allen Park Dearborn Woodhaven were heard early Monday morning with tablets and phones taken in Allen Park. Police say Iraq was used to gain entry to the store where five men worked as a team to get goods. It's believed all three thefts are linked as a silver dodge. Durango was is using each one. There's also a fourth believe theft last week up in Brighton. Though it's not confirmed police think it's the same alleged criminals as of this recording. There isn't much to go on beyond the silver dodge. Durango clue vincit a garage. Berkeley is going to get their long desired. Parking lot out out back of the Popular Restaurant Open since two thousand twelve. The free is reporting the owners of the establishment who also own houses behind their place. On Woodward have reached to deal with the city of Berkley to tear down the homes and make them parking lots totaling more than fifty spaces although patrons have parking in the surrounding neighborhood. It's reported that neighbors are none too pleased with the parking lot idea. But it's thought that Berkeley City Council will approve a consent judgment on a lawsuit filed by owner Kirk Cataldo and that will settle the matter so parking winds there will be a wall with a stamped pattern put up and a new house built as part of this deal. Here are a couple of quick thoughts. Berkeley is one of the more population dense suburbs in the region. This location is right across from Roilo just south of eleven and a half Mile Road. You'd think there'd be some sort of agreement with reserved parking for residents like like other cities around the country. This is this is pretty common for say have parking passes for neighborhoods where people live and I get both sides. metro-detroit loves the CAR. And this is Kirk tells. I'm sure he feels the pinch from people complaining about parking also neighborhoods deserve deserve to have the kind of area that they want. I feel like there could have been some sort of middle ground with the more creative solution especially as you're near a main thoroughfare like Woodward but sadly that that's going to be hard to come up with a region that so vehemently anti transit and views on balance buses and transit is something the Poor's take. I'm sure we're going to run into more conflicts like this. This part of town continues to develop and we still don't have major infrastructures staying nearby Royal Royo Bistro eighty-two is closing the restaurant has won a ton of awards and received a lot of praise but clearly something's not working for the French inspired eatery that opened in two thousand fourteen the spotted fourth and Lafayette streets will have its last service.

The mccomb County Public Works Office has collection booms at two spots sterling heights. They're cleaning up. What's left of a petroleum spill or possibly dumping? That happened on Friday. The third of January between between seventy five and one hundred gallons of what could be gasoline got into the underground Shayna relief drain and warrant a sheen was then found on the Clinton river miles downstream.

Cohen wouldn't be testifying. Now earlier today, we spoke with congressman Stephen Lynch, and he says public testimony in a case like this is important good up. These these hearings needs to be public. So the American American people can make their own determination as to the credibility of the witnesses and the allegations with respect to to President Trump and the congressman says alleged threats towards Cohen from the president and his current lawyer Rudy Giuliani are in his words, borderline witness, intimidation and tempering and Lynch says it.

"Sure thing the west once had great political hopes for south East, Asia America, in particular, has long envisioned a string of just an orderly pro US democracies triumphantly prospering and China's backyard today. That vision looks more like a hallucination southeast Asia has become the domain of unelected thar Teheran's or worse yet elected leaders who behave like despots. This is the present and future of southeast Asia, hyper capitalistic, but deeply illiberal. This autocratic sweep doesn't just benefit the entrenched political dynasties that run these nations. It's also a blessing for organized crime. So you do kind of a big survey of many countries in southeast Asia, but me and mar add like to focus on because it figures prominently in your book in no small part. Because one of the major commodities there is meth. What is the story behind me and more becoming one of the world's meth capitals? The largest meth market in the world is in south East Asia. Now, it's no longer in Mexico. The top selling product is this little pink pill nets Pinkas, say, Barbie's, corvette, and this stuff smells like vanilla cake frosting. So if there was a pill sitting here in this room, we would someone having birthday cake. So the junkies are smoking the pills yet. And if you do, you'll get this euphoric eight hour high, which they describe as making ever. Everything around you. Interesting. A lot of the work that people do in south East Asia is tedious repetitive work. And if you take this pill, that drudge work becomes interesting. And so that exceleron it's the popularity, doesn't lead to addiction and aren't people dying. It does lead to addiction, of course, it's really bad for you. It's not a good idea to take it to work longer hours because it can catch up with you. But frankly, a lot of people I talked to, they aren't the junky profile. You might picture and and just like people can be functional alcoholics, you can be a functional meth user. So it sounds like there's a cultural thing that's driving the meth use. How did the dealers and how did this economy? How is it allowed to kind of flourish. Let's look at the place where all this stuff is coming out of that's northern Yan mar up on the border with China and these pills are being produced by drug lords up there who have been allowed by the state to control little pockets of territory. Most like it's their own little kingdom and they're very prolific. So at this point they're churning out more than two billion of these pills per year. Okay. Starbucks doesn't sell that many cups of coffee in a year. McDonald's isn't sell that many big Macs a year worldwide. The scale is massive. Our police part of the problem too. They allow this to happen. Absolutely. So if the police are part of the problem, there's another answer to the drug situation in Myanmar. It's called the pots, just San. I hope I'm pronouncing that right? Who are the pot? Just son is a Baptist vigilante group, and they're furious that there are drug lords running parts of their native territory. And so they've said, well, we can't go after drug lords because I've M16.'s RPG's and all that, but we can form vigilante group that goes out at night snatches up anyone who's got some of those pink meth pills in their pocket and teaches them a lesson. And so I went up there and asked, can I tag along. Yeah. And you go on a raid with them out, would you read that part? It's on page sixty eight. As soon as I hop on the back of the motorbike he twists the hand throttle reading hard. We zip out of the compound. I can see the rest of the pack up the road there rear lamps casting a red shimmer on the wet earth. We race ahead to rejoin the swarm. The wind is beating on my ears damp air, fluttering my collar, my feet flail about seeking the bike's rear foot pegs. And when I find them I dig in stabilising my body as we exceleron over puddles. My sneakers are so cct and I m exhilerated it's hard to fend off the intoxicating rush of running with the pride charged with purpose weapons at the ready. Most of the vigilantes are riding with two guys on one motorbike, the men in back gripping bamboo staffs there, long weapons wobble in the wind, but my excitement is tempered by a sense of foreboding feels as if a dark spell has been cast as if this mission is pregnant with violence..

He visits opium dens, northern Myanmar, investigates the illicit drug trade in the Philippines and oh yeah. He also dances with North Korean waitresses in Thailand. I got to say Patrick, a lotta. This book feels like fear and loathing and southeast Asia. I don't suspect that was the original point. But why did you undertake the survey of the region's dark underbelly in the first place while I know people are into organized crime. I mean, look at the stuff we watch on television narcos breaking bad, the wire all the way back to the godfather, but there's this huge black spot and that is southeast Asia. And do you think organized crime in southeast Asia functions differently from. What we see in movies like the godfather of breaking bed. I think that the big takeaway about organized crime in south East Asia is it's booming and no one's talking about it. So by the middle of next decade organized crime syndicates just in that region will control three hundred seventy five billion dollars that's bigger than the GDP of countries in south East Asia, or that's bigger than the GDP of Ireland. So just to kind of set us up and frame the rest of our conversation, I'd like you to read from the prologue to the book starting with the line, the west once had great political hopes for south East Asia..

What are the important issues that connect the Middle East say to southeast Asia. Well, I, I was responsible for starting the Middle East is do more than a decade ago. Okay. Instructions.

"Are you optimistic that they will have some end that is good for the region. For the claimants? Well, it's like one of those things better to have than to have right. It can reduce accidents, low attention, the very process, negotiating it is as important in itself, but it is not a symbol. It is not a magic one that will magically somehow make all the the different claims bowl. Ray resolve is not meant to adjudicate meeting claims. It's meant to regulate behavior to make it less dangerous to ensure that the the level of tension is manageable. And that's all I mean on that point of view is us will when it will be concluded. I have absolutely no idea. If you recall the declaration of conduct in the South China Sea took tenure, Stewart negotiate, and the implementation lands for the declaration conduct took a further ten years and certainly issues. In the conduct a far more complicated than the decoration. So don't hold your breath. Okay. There is value in the process of negotiating one. Obviously, as you well know, some season is coming up soon in Asia and southeast Asian particular with Singapore hosting East Asia summit and Ozzy on meetings in November. The White House has said that President Trump won't be attending this year and we'll send vice president Pence instead. And I wanted to ask, if you think the sends a negative signal to the region about US commitment, it's extensive engagement going forward. Yes and no Bisley off prefer best than Trump to come in person as he did to the Melilla. But I think given Mr. Trump's. Personality is not really a surprise that it did not decided not to besides having a very crucial mitchum elected in over. I, I don't know what the outcome will be. I know you know, as I do the pundits on this often wrong sometimes right sometimes wrong, so I'm not entirely surprised so I don't think what is not a good thing. I think it's a, it's a fatal thing because I said earlier. Residents coming, but the US presence in the region has been pretty consistent. Okay. I think should also visually. And you believe this to be true even in the context of America first and the broader approach of the Trump administration to the world. Okay. Setting us, I tree woman, right? And the security and foreign policies here I see is much continue d. as I see, I see farm opportunity as each despite what Mr. drum says, tweets, he has reaffirmed all the alliances he has given the seventh fleet greater latitude to adopt freed on vacation operations in the South China Sea. Then his beliefs as did he has to some degree to logically restart the credibility of American power. I think it was a huge blow as big as fascination. The EV it'd be where President Obama draw red line in Syria and then fail to enforce it. The credibility American power was the last resort restored when Mr. Trump decided to bomb Syria while having dinner with residency chipping and without red abolish can be no leadership. So I take this philosophy, you know. The one could wish that Mr. Trump would express himself in a more calibrated way, but I tend to look at what is done what you says actually done and not just what one individual. The other says. Do you see sort of the Americas first approach to the world, including on trade and historical anomaly? Or do you think it's a long term trend that you know as a keen watcher of the United States from south East Asia is something that you can expect to see for a while. I think it's a symptom of a deeper more profound phenomenon. Eddie end of the Cold War, a certain degree, a Jerez infected American foreign policies, beginning with the Clinton administration and after nine, eleven that led to these.

How do you assess Ozzy on performance recently? And where do you see it going in the future? Much of the ASEAN amounts to criticizing call for being imperfect false, and that is actually point. Okay.

The coal was hot on the mainland always -ation. Singapore had just been expelled from Malaysia and relationship was fraught with racial tension in Asia, had just stopped fighting a undeclared war against Malaysia. And when we left Malaysia against Malaysia Insinger ball confrontation, the Philippines was claiming a huge chunk of Malaysia, namely SABA. There were tensions along the border between southern Thailand, Malaysia, west Malaysia, and between southern Philippines, Indonesia. In short, the region wasn't optimists today. We are by and lots of each without cells with each other. And that's fundamental the fundamental achievement. As I said, I think you can get the South China Sea has become something of a proxy for the strategic Jasmine's on the way between the US and China. And that's a big boy game. We do very much in earlier period. Played a major role, Vietnamese leader Cambodia in the night. But that was that was a sign of Soviet proxy conflict beyond our politics off. I play. Not once aggression role in preventing a complete being recognized until the global constellation of major powers shifted, and it will also to have some kind of solution. So the things we can do things we can do some five will move faster other times, and sometimes we will. We will not move all along a smooth or strict victory. We move forward by meanders and lurches, which is not unusual in regional Asians. This is the reality. The fundamental issue is, are we all better off with us yet? I think the answer must be better off with ASEAN for all these invoked. This is imperfect world since the South China Sea has come up.

"It's not entirely clear what he needs. And I think that they are really tree pastas abrasions that of most salvation countries will have. I. Is it inclusive concept, or is it exclusive humane, vis-a-vis, China, really. China is the all countries actually because China is part of the region. That's a geopolitical fat second. What does it mean for efforts for economic cooperation within the the region and what does it mean for international law LaRussa base order. That is a bit of a slogan that has a connotation by dominion in that way as a small country. Obviously. The more that it's a national relations structured on the basis of law rather than alone. Raw power, the better. So these are three classes of questions. The countries. Still at a initial stage of formulating won't onset of what the Indo Pacific means. We at the point within that he didn't know Shen and the Pacific Ocean. Eventually we must have our own concept of what these beads. Yeah. Yeah. When I traveled to the region, I sometimes here in the context of China's rise also this new Indo Pacific policy of the Trump administration. The statement from think tankers and others in southeast Asia, don't make us choose. In other words, we don't want to have to choose between China and the United States. I sometimes wonder if it's a cliche or if it's really strongly felt, how do you feel about that? Well, as a Annency, not just Americans, but amount of many salvations East Asians, think of the wool in binary terms in must be if not a must be can only be. I don't think this really have just the complexity of very diverse region, not just obvious Asia Minya, but the broad, the East Asia in the Polly, what you want. It is much more naturally multiple region. Now the period on special on challenge American dominance of eminence was in historical terms, very short, maybe from certain ninety nine to something like. Two thousand eight two thousand nine when the global financial. For most of the twentieth century. In fact, for most of history, the Woolmer's much more complex place and region will certainly much more complex where we say, don't make us choose. We are trying really, at least in my mind to to instill a sense of this flexibly on whoever audiences. Look at the look at the facts, the investment figures look at trade figures, look at the military presence. Yes, China's footprint is growing as natural bustle, but the US is not. This appear in Japan is enhancing footprint in many ways. So our Indians Australia is at the southern tip of this region. You have career to, you know, which is playing increasing role. So it is a compact region. It is naturally multiple region in western international relations theory, and I'm a great fan of it. But you know, balancing hedging and bandwagoning Hunslet to be alternatives strategies actually in salvation. We all three simultaneously always got. So I have never forgotten what Vietnam. Polly wants told me, he told me, I asked him what does change leadership annoy means will be announced relations with China, and I've never gotten his answer. He's also not Bill hurry. Every Vietnamese leader must be able to get along with China and must be able to stand up China. And if you think you can't do both tediously, you don't deserve to be the leader and that pretty much sounds out sound sums up the southeast Asia, fundamental diplomatic instinct. I give you a two examples. When president Duta take came into our Philippines, if read the American media commentary, you would have thought at the sky's falling. But yes, he, he has a..

"Of multiracial meritocracy. That is the fundamental social combat on wishing a points based. And if that compact is broken, this is a small place if there has broken is going to be very difficult if not impossible together now in southeast Asia as a whole, the role of Oversea-Chinese is always going to be a sensitive issue, but is affec- unfortunately it is now in nineteen fifty five. The Chinese between ninety forty nine hundred fifty five. The Chinese communist party and the town. In feel opposition for the allegiance of the overseas Chinese communities of southeast Asia in ninety fifty five, four of ride the reasons, the Chinese communist. The wisely in my in my in my view, made a distinction within the horror which is excellent Chinese overseas, which can be of any citizenship and the patio, which is a thick Chinese of ESE nationality and basically toll the Kwara elbow, Biko citizens of your countries wherever you more recently. However, they have tried. They have much this. The narrative of the great rejuvenation of China under the leadership of the communist party, which it knowledgeable room very insistently under sitting same's that the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation is of importance to is of should be about all Chinese. In other words, a blurring of this cinch in between the Horan and watcher Oganization Alie inbox this year, the Overseas Chinese Affairs office was placed under the control of the United front work department of the Chinese communist party. Now, I think this is rather cited because if something happens in southeast Asia to the Chinese communities which has happened a riot racial riot, which unfortunately cannot be entirely ringed out. This puts the Chinese offense. Most recently in Malaysia. It was not the main reason why. The recent election, but it was one of these. The opposition use this effect and the Chinese ambassador in Malaysia during the election. Soy fit to go and openly campaign for a ethnic Chinese candidate. Government Kennedy, listen, the gentleman lost. They like, I don't really understand why they have decided to blood. Is this diction by it is most unwise, not in China's own interest. That's very interesting. And I wanted to ask you about it because I've been reading some of the press reports where you've been quoted and so on. Let's turn now to the role of the United States, and I know you're keen watcher of American foreign policy as well. And we've seen US foreign policy toward Asia, including southeast Asia, kinda Volve from at least in the last two administrations from the pivot to Asia or the. Rebalanced policy of President Obama to now the free and open Indo Pacific policy of the Trump administration. The new policy seems to take a more confrontational approach toward China, at least rhetorically. And I'm wondering how you evaluate the current trends in US policy and any recommendations you might have for the Trump administration? Well, if you look at it, I don't like the rebalance only slightly better because it knows inconstancy what what way can be can another way. But actually, if you look at US policy since the early seventies, what has been most evident is consistency. You are here and I don't see any sign of you retreating the great disruption of US. Policy's always Asia was the Nixon doctrine. The doctrine in ninety sixty nine. And since then there has been fluctuations from administration, administration, because every ministration obliged to distinguish yourself from the previous one, even if the distinctions minute and the free and open Indo Pacific is the latest iterating of what has been actually very consistent policy. I get a useful to Indo Pacific in so far as draws attention to the strategic connections between the Indian Pacific oceans which have always existed, but have become more more clearer. Immoral seniors. But it's very broad slogan..

"For reasons that could not loss, we became independent. Ninety sixty five now Singapore. At least. I mean, the Oculus. Evidence suggests since the fall inch century has been a a major trading up for for the region, and that is still our essential role. Of course, we have broadened the definition of that role. We are now a major financial center. We a major oil refining center, although we have no oil, whatever. We are a major logistic center. We a major point, but you have to understand that modern Singapore is a totally official place. We should not exist. It was created by human endeavor and has to be maintained by women Deva. This is another way say that a small city state as no intrinsic relevance in the international system relevance is to be created. And how we create. It has to be a reinvented from type of. We are currently as until the end of this year. Twenty eighty. Our goal is basic thing to keep on track. We have specified goals defined by to enhance the resilience of the organization and also to Stotts that the initiatives in in the in the broad field of a digital economy a, yeah, it's not an overly apply. So what we can do is stop things than somebody else will have to make them fall at the Knicks chair of coffee will still continue to play a role, right? So it's goes on modest. Let's turn to sort of broader trends in the region. You had said Singapore has also witnessed the involvement of great powers and so on. And it seems recently there's so much media and scholarly attention focusing on China's rise and growing influence in the region with so much focus on its land reclamation activities in the South China Sea, or it's economic state craft illustrated in the belt and road initiative or. B. r. I, and in a recent speech I notice from the summer, you discuss global trends that will shape Singapore's future. And one was the rise of China, but you cautioned that this term can sometimes be bandied about sort of loosely almost like a trope and you had vise that we strive to understand China's rise in its full complexity. What did you mean by that? Particularly in the southeast Asian context as a major Pala a major economy. Contiguous who's always Asia. China will always have significant influence in this region. Significant influence. However, that's not necessarily mean exclusive influence or even dominant influence besides sleep because we are a strategic crossroad says, I earlier mention Sally's Atia will be always the scene of major power competition. That means other palace abound to be present. The United States is here, and I think it's you're here to stay. Japan is, yeah, Australia, medium. Hala is ya? India is another major, Asian power contiguous to the region. It is deaf all strategically complex region. But in that complexity, gifts, the small states of salvager and remember the largest of us even Indonesia. Vietnam are still small by comparison to China or India or United States Japan because there will always be each of our present. That gives us the boss ability of maneuver Banu to Avante, saw own regional and national interests. One other point I think it is over overlooked that is China's rise is your political. But I think he starkly if you look at the history of salvation, there's never been a period except for short, an exceptional period of Japanese occupation during the second World War where any major power as dress, the region whole just too complicated to shape shifting region for any major Pala to claim exclusive dominates. I want to move to this question of sort of US China rivalry in a moment. But one of the question of on China in particular, I noticed that recently you've been raising concerns about China's policies on one issue in particular, its relations with some people say the overseas Chinese or ethnic Chinese populations in the region. What is at the root of your concern on this issue? And why is this potentially such a cigar. Efficient issue for south East Asia. Let me start with Singapore. So is the only sovereign state whose population was was population. The majority of the population are of ethnic Chinese origins. I have a fight uniquely in this region.

"So I actually said foreign ministry and intending to leave, what's the of my bond to the gunman was over, but I forgot to leave. And then you know, the rest is history history. Well, that's great. Very interesting. If I can say that I actually had a Fulbright to Singapore in the nineteen eighty s at the National University of Singapore, and then later went to Columbia for my PHD. So I guess we have a little bit of a connection here. Oh, we just reversed then the university of became the National University, right? Right. It seems to me that south East Asia's typically described as a large diverse economically dynamic region comprised of eleven countries. He's almost all of which are members of the association of southeast Asian nations are often, but these countries aren't as well known. I think to most Americans say China or Japan, what should Americans know and understand about southeast Asia, and how is this change over the past thirty or forty years in terms of the role of the region, and where is it heading? Well, I surprisingly constantly surprise about holiday americ- most Americans noble salvager, and yet you fought the very long and costly war in this region, which while the immediate aims of the wall was not not met. In fact, it was a favorable you did. I type while the rest of the region to put out on house in order, and in that sense, laid the foundation of a fairly prosperous and certainly peaceful fairly peaceful region that you see today Salvatierra. Is not a natural region by which I mean something that can be defined with relations with self boy, upper Europe, Kennedy final with relation to self. So he's Asia. The only common feature is that there's nothing interesting to self is in fact, a geopolitical that came into white use only in the second World War of it, lies at the crossroads between the Pacific and Indian oceans is a very along very important trade routes, very important energy supply routes. And of course, militarizing strategic is significant rules. So it is always the at the center of major power contestation. At in the sixties in the late sixties before was Paul and even up to the early seventies, it was known as the Balkans of Asian because the peaceful region you see today was not something to be taken into forgotten. In fact, it would have been it would if you had predicted ninety seven when Osceola was formed, that we would be in the quite good condition we are today, you would have probably been dismissed as a dream or visionary, oh, and who's Natick, but kill ya. And. Intensity and tell us a little about Singapore in particular city state that seems to punch above its weight in East Asia and more generally, what are the foreign policy goals and priorities of Singapore, particularly this year when it serving as the OSCE on chair. Is as you said, a city state, it is a most improbable. So Rene tion of uninformed as did not themselves believe that we could city state could survive by itself.

"Claims will but i thought of the rebounds policy setting very high bar and as a policymaker for a period of time in the policy planning staff at the state department i felt it always made us try to reach higher in terms of engagement in southeast asia so we have to sort of see as the indo pacific policy continues to be fleshed out and i think we see a high level of diplomatic engagement continued security engagement particularly on the maritime front bringing in india and so on ozzy on just wants to make sure that they're not crowded out that they're not sort of hyphen in a sense between the two sides of this broader region that's being described jonathan looking ahead then what kind of additional research will you be doing to help visitors to the brookings website to help policymakers to help listeners of this podcast understand and think about issues in south east asia well we have different plans personally i'm working as we often do here brookings on a book that is looking at china southeast asia relations as they've been evolving the last few years where they may go in the future and then what are the policy implications for both us policy towards southeast asia in general but perhaps the us china relationship in particular we're also looking to kind of expand our social media engagement and hopefully do some podcasts like this with experts from the region and ask them about the breaking issues whether it's the may kong the row hinge issue in myanmar and bangladesh and abroad set of other issues as well including elections coming up in indonesia for instance so we're looking to expand and do more and engage with top think tanks in the region through that process why invite you to come back on the show and continue this conversation to eliminate the issues in southeast asia it's fascinating region and we wanna learn more about it so jonathan thank you for sharing your time and expertise.

"Yes so ozzy on is made up of ten countries in southeast asia originally five when it was a salvage nineteen sixty seven and then gradually expanded to ten but there's also t more or less in southeast asia so all together there's eleven countries in the region or some of the tensions within the nation's within this region well frankly speaking a number of tensions are developing among the southeast asian countries in part because of china's dramatic rise in the last few years and overwhelmingly i think the media coverage focuses on the south china sea disputes the islands that china's building something their military bases or something right and there are four ozzy on claimants to these maritime waters the two that we hear most about is vietnam and the philippines but also malaysia and brunei and so china some would say has been sort of engaging in grey zone or salami slicing tactics with land reclamation and militarization of reefs and rocks and low tide features and so on and by salami slicing i think the allergy means they take a little bit at a time without ever kind of provoking a response or triggering outright conflict among the other claimants or perhaps their supporters but eventually the concern is they'll have defacto control over the long term and how to deal with this while these countries have very strong and nationalistic even concerns and manifestations over their claims to these islands while china is at the same time growing so strong economically in the region it has dominant trade relationships with these countries it is offering extensive for an aide and infrastructure investment which many of these countries really need.

"Majority country vietnam is pushing a hundred million people now the philippines is already over one hundred million of course you've got smaller states like laos with six or seven million people and cambodia for instance which i think is at about sixteen million now so it really is a diverse region and one sort of acronym we often hear when we talk about southeast asia is option or the association of southeast asian nations which was established in nineteen sixty seven originally with five members and now it's extended to ten and taking together ozzy on countries boasts the third largest population in the world at about six hundred thirty million it's also the third largest economy in asia and the fifth in the world with the gdp of two point four trillion dollars and the fourth largest export region in the world and i think from a us perspective ozzy on is the top destination for us investment in asia as well so should we include india in the southeast asia region or his india its own yacht action india is in south asia as we think of it but there's increasing interaction between india and southeast asia and a long long historical and cultural relationship that goes way back in these kind of conversations about different places around the world like to try to focus on the places themselves without reference to us policy toward them we'll get into that later so let's stick with thinking about how these eleven countries of southeast asia interact with each other you mentioned ozzy on what other ways are they tied together economically culturally maybe or in terms of security.
