"I'm Scott Tetreault. And I'm Rachel Martin. Good morning. What a year. It has been 12 months of lockdowns and loss now, though, There is hope on the horizon For the first time since the pandemic up ended life in the United States, many public health experts say the worst could finally be over. NPR health correspondent Rob Stein has been talking to infectious disease experts, epidemiologist, public health officials, medical historians. And there are caveats to this good news, Rob, but it's it's at least a moment to mark, isn't it? Yeah. Rachel E think it really is, You know, like millions of other Americans. I've been hiding in my house for a year now doing one gloomy story after another from this makeshift studio in my attic, you know? And it just got worse and worse, So it is almost hard to even imagine that this awful nightmare could finally be starting to end. Now, not everyone is ready to say the worst could be over. But I checked in with more than 20 leading experts I've been talking with throughout the pandemic, and it's been pretty striking. Most are. Here's one example doctors. She's job, the dean of the Brown School of Public Health. I'm optimistic that the worst may in fact be behind us. And so to be able to say, I think cautiously optimistic that the worst may be behind us. Boy that does feel really good. Now, you know, Rachel, Nearly 60,000. People are still getting infected every day, hundreds or so dying every day, so thousands of people are probably still going to get very sick and died before this is all over. And that hope as you said, it comes with some big caveats. If everyone doesn't let down their guard too fast. If those dangerous variants don't mess things up again before enough people could get vaccinated, and if the vaccination campaign doesn't stumble badly. What if none of those it's come true? That could piece that elusive light at the end of the tunnel? What does that light encompass? What does that exactly mean? Yes. So what it means is that the number of people getting infected sick and dying. Well, hopefully slowly but pretty steadily continued. Dropping from here on out in life would slowly but steadily return to something much more normal. Our new normal is finally in sight. People tell me That's because of the vaccines. The fact that they're chunk of the country already has some immunity in the weather is getting warmer, which slows down the virus. So even if there is yet another wave, chances are it'll be more like you know, like a ripple than another surge. Here's what Dr Anthony Fauci told me about this the other day. If all goes well. If we stick by the public health measures if we effectively vaccinate, I think we are looking at a brighter future over the next several months. That's entirely conceivable and probably likely. We're talking about more people heading back to stores, Restaurants work more more kids going back to school. Small groups of fully evacuated people getting together for dinner parties indoors without masks. The CDC is already saying vaccinated, people can start getting together that way again. So I mean, that's such good news. What about if we protect into the summer like summer camps for kids vacations? Can we do any of that? Yeah. You know, people are telling me that the summers looking you could be pretty good. You know, it won't be like the summer of 2019. But I'll hopefully be way better than the sum of 2020. Here's Ali Mokdad at the University of Washington. We'll see more grand parents visiting and hugging their grandchildren. More restaurant will open We would see sports events, weddings, church and religious events to will have summer camp for kids even like It's just staying and they same bunk. People will travel more, including myself. I will get on a plane and see my mom. Life will go back to normal. Now. Hot spots could flare up again because of the variance. You know, people getting careless people who haven't gotten vaccinated, But the trajectory of the pandemic could mostly keep going in the right direction. I mean, that is such good news. What about a lot of parents are concerned about what the fall looks like for kids and school? What do we know? Yet, you know, count kids won't be vaccinated, but their teachers hopefully will be so the vote with the virus down. Schools should be pretty safe, You know, probably wearing masks, but you know, no more slogging through school on laptops into kitchen table for most kids. I talked about this with Jennifer Nuzzo at Johns Hopkins. She's got a seven year old son. Seven year old aren't meant to spend their entire days on the computer, and it's really hard to cover the subjects that they're supposed discover on a Google hangout. They need to interact with their classmates. They need to learn how to, you know, not talk when the teacher is talking, and not just because the mute buttons on I think it'll be really beneficial for them to be back in the classroom. I suppose I'm taking through the seasons here, But I do have to ask about winter when things potentially. I mean, we could get in trouble there. Yeah, you know, there's a possible storm cloud on the horizon for the winner of the virus could surge again in the winter. If the coronavirus follows two seasons like the flu, but hopefully shouldn't be anything like the horrific victor. We just went through. And Dr Fauci is hopeful that life could still continue getting better and better does conceivable and probably likely by the time we get to the full late full early winter by the end of this year. That we will have a gradual but very noticeable and important return to some form of normality. Maybe almost exactly like we were before you know, some worry. It may take longer than that, because of the variance and even in the best scenario, the virus won't be gone. New variants could evolve will probably need new versions of the vaccines for the variance and, you know, booster shots. So that's kind of the view of the next 12 months say, But you've also been talking with historians about what this means for us in the long term, right? I mean the trauma. We've all collectively gone through. Yes, so the aftereffects could ripple for decades. I've talked about this with several medical of stories, including Keith Way, Lou at Princeton, he said. This pandemic is a world changing event that has already reshaped, it told generation. It has already been the case that the pandemic has had a profound impact on Society on basic questions like the nature of our social interactions. You know, the pandemic revealed some pretty deep problems and how society treats the elderly, poor people. People of color. It could change so many parts of our lives. You know, our homes are worked out how we travel how we touch each other, you know? Well, the elbow bump were placed a handshake for could You know, Looking back, the black death led to the Renaissance. The 1918 19 flu pandemic gave way to the roaring twenties. We've just begun the new twenties. It's impossible to know what world will emerge as the virus recedes. But it seems pretty clear that we'll be hearing the echoes of this pandemic for a really long time. Yeah. NPR health correspondent Rob Stein. Thank you so much, right? We appreciate it. You bet, Rachel.

Lori Gottlieb, psychotherapist and author: "The uncomfortable is a great place to be."
"Hey everyone the show might sound a bit different today because we're skimming from three different couches. The scam is still working from home for the time being because of covid nineteen today Lori gottlieb joins us on skin from the couch. She is a psychotherapist and an author. She writes the Dr Therapist Column in the Atlantic and She's also the author of the bestselling novel maybe you should talk to someone which I read I loved and then recommended to every member of my family Lori. Thank you for joining US welcome to skin from the couch. Thanks so much for having me Lori we're very excited I. Feel like we're about to have therapy. We're going start though putting you on the on the hot feet, which just can you skim your resume for us? Yeah. Sure. After graduating from college I worked in the entertainment business. I. I worked on the film side and then I moved over to NBC, and you're I there to. You May for premiering when was called Er and the other was called breads heard of them. When I was working on Er, we had a consultant who is an emergency room physician at and he would do research with us and help us to choreograph the scenes and make sure that everything's accurate and I spent a lot of time in the ER, and he said to me I, think you like it better here than you like your day job because I was spending a lot of time in the ER and and I was like I'm lacking to go to medical school. Like I like in my late twenties late that I went to medical school. So went to Stanford I went to medical school when I got there, it was the middle of the DOT com the first sort of DOT com bill before i. And a lot of people were saying you know managed care it was coming into the healthcare system and would be able to do the kinds of work that I wanted to do with my patients. I worked at a DOT COM for a little bit in the summer between first year second year of medical school and ultimately assert writing and I left to become a journalist and. I felt like as a journalist I could really help to tell people stories the way that I wanted to, and it was about ten years later after being a journalist for wile still a journalist but I had a baby and I was desperate for adult interaction and ups guy would come ons I would lose him in conversation at he hated that nearly describing me in corn to. Like that and so he would always try to avoid the at eventually start telling to my door putting the APP just down very gently. So I would not open the door, engage him in conversation, and so I called Dean at Stanford and I said, maybe I should come back Andrew Psychiatry and she said, you know you always wanted these deeper interactions with people welcome to come back. But if you do psychiatry probably doing a lot of medication management, it's not what you WANNA do. Why don't you get a graduate degree in clinical psychology and do the work want to do it was really this is a moment it sounds obvious. In, retrospect which I think a lot of career things do where you know something that is right in front of you you had thought of, and so I did that and I, have this hybrid career where I'm a psychotherapist I have clinical practice here Los Angeles I'm still a writer I write books I writes the weekly called the Atlantic Avenue podcast coming out therapy. So I see like what I do is I look at story of the human condition and I just express it different means what something that is not on your Lincoln profiler bio that people would be surprised to know about you maybe that I was competitive chess player. You have another fallback career. I. Wasn't good never for career but I was really serious about it and I think I use that a lot in my career. So I think with chests there's a lot of strategy. There's a lot of anticipating the consequences of your moves and you can't plan everything out but I think that people look at my career they think I made these very impulsive decisions like you're working in Hollywood and boom you're going to go to medical school you're working on e. r. and then boom you want to. Tell stories in different ways to you're GonNa go Ri- and then you're GonNa go the therapist and you go from telling people stories, changing people's stories, right? All of that is true but I think I very much ought ahead about why was I doing reflecting on why was doing so many people said to me you are crazy. You don't leave medical school when you get into Stanford Medical School right? You don't leave Hollywood when you're at NBC and you have this job you're successful journalists would you mean you're going to go back and do therapy and why would you leave? And so I think it's really about I. Think in chests you have to kind of really be reflected about what you're doing. When I think about being reflective as an adult I think that means being reflective and going inside to that place of knowing and not listening to all the noise out there that the reflection is an inside job and not an outside job.
"stanford medical" Discussed on KSFO-AM
"Stanford Medical Center Dr Alice thanks so much for joining the show again sure thanks so as we look at these increased model numbers suggesting anywhere from a hundred and thirty four thousand deaths to two hundred thousand deaths by the end of August yeah I'm I'm frankly a little bit surprised at the amount of press is getting given the fact that eventually these lockdowns were going to and everybody understands that as the lockdowns and more people will go out in it the risks from cover nineteen have not been mitigated I'm wondering exactly which sectors do you think are lacking when it comes to releasing people from walk down a gradual fashion yeah I'd like if I can clarify something about the models first those figures that were just I received from the I. age I mean model have nothing to do with blocked on being released those figures are just simply updates based upon data coming in that we are already seeing so the the fact here is that these hypothetical projections shouldn't be obsessed over all they do when they change every three or four days is point out the inaccuracies of their own projection this is not based on changing policy that's point number one now the quicker your question was what you what should be done on re entry is that is that what your question is yes sorry about that so I mean the basic points here are using what we know it which is the the real realistic approximation of fidelity rate and who's vulnerable we need to focus point number one very strange and access to the most vulnerable people the tender box of people that are living in a nursing home and senior is nursing homes and senior care centers and what I mean by stringent requirements in there already regulated environment because you can't just walk into a nursing home anyway that should be done things like actually requiring testing okay you can have somebody who's coming in there and cleaning the floors who might be infected or who's touching these patients are working with them this is sort of obvious point number one targeted strict control point number two is people who have mild disease who are sick and have some kind of flu symptoms respiratory they have to assume they have the disease and self isolate you don't need a test for them well you urgently need is to protect the vulnerable in the way you do that is to let people know that if they're sick they have to self isolate assume they have the disease the other things to be done really hard to make sure that you have not incited fear in the public and instill rational trust in in their experience in self isolating and what I mean by that is they know who's vulnerable they know their elderly family members for instance people with underlying conditions particularly diabetes and obesity are vulnerable use the standards of hygiene we now know no one knew about social isolation before we know what social distancing it but that doesn't mean confining people into their homes it makes no sense there's no real evidence it's better to be strictly confined inside your home or is it we should keep K. through twelve schools open and I I I can talk about that in detail but young children the people in the case through twelve eight your we know overwhelming amount of evidence that these people have very little if any risk of serious illness from this virus and essentially zero risk of dying you don't have to keep them confined in their homes or even have six foot spacing between them if you keep them confined in their homes not only are you missing education but you're locking up the ability of their parents to go to work there's a massive really harmful nature to some of these restrictive policies similarly there's no evidence to keep people inside and walked down parks and beaches and outdoor facilities that was done to prevent this kind of very close proximity mingling but even when we we know even if you wanted to have that for some reason the clothes a park I mean that's just really there's no evidence for that and what these policies have done them is they have done something very harmful not just walking down medical care and people are dying because of that and the massive harm from the economic isolation but they have instilled fear and panic in people and you're seeing probably where you live certainly where I live in California I see people who are driving around inside their own cars with no one else in them wearing masks and believe me I'm not I'm not implying something wrong with these people all orders are underestimating their fear I'm saying it it is an indication of the fear from very poor leadership and very blue really lack of consideration of science and using logic to use appropriate policy so Dr Alice that I've I've been in the last couple days considering a question and it was actually raised by a column that you wrote for the hill in in sort of contradiction to an article that was written by a dining terrace over the New York times and this is with regard to social distancing itself what are the goals that we are attempting to achieve here the reason I'm asking this question is because it seems like basically we are now trying to figure out what to do based on future projections on the one hand you have folks who say okay well vaccine will come it will be imminent it will happen quickly or there will be a therapeutic don't happen quickly which would suggest Billington lockdowns you create lots of social distancing so as to flatten the curve until we get to some sort of day sex Machenaud that radically changes the math on the other hand there's a possibility that nothing changes that were two years out we still don't have a vaccine there's been no serious therapeutic that's been developed a radically lowers the death rate and then the question is why wouldn't we have preserved herd immunity among the non violent vulnerable populations in other words you make sure that the people who are most vulnerable are protected you make sure that the nursing homes are really well protected to make sure the people who are obese or who have pre diabetes are staying home as much as possible isolated from other people and you actually encourage the sixty to seventy percent of the population that does not have any of these conditions to go out and you actually want the the call they to move through the population and create herd immunity that's sort of the Swedish strategy it seems like we sort of split the baby here where we are on the one hand suggesting that we are not pursuing herd immunity and on the other end and that there will be some radical change that will happen in the in the very near future at the same time we want people to sort of go back to work and sort of isolate and sort of not isolate what is our goal here should our goal here should be assuming that there's some sort of radical change to the system in the form of therapeutic or vaccine and thus we should really mitigate the amount of social contact we have with one another or should we be assuming that none of that may be forthcoming and so we should actually pursue her pursue her community because every month we don't pursue herd immunity is another month of of that length in time where the economy is dead and where his percentage of the population have to stay home okay so you're pointing out really one of the major flaws of logic and common sense honestly that's being used by people including very smart people the point here is that there is no reason to do some of these sort of illogical isolation policies regardless of if there is a vaccine and I want to put come back to the vaccine point but the goal of the of the policy this is your first question the goal of policy was stated and it has been two fold stop the people from dying who are the most vulnerable which that called hi Leslie there's a problem with how they are was it sort of ignored in a sense but took flatten the Kurds what does that mean curve is nothing to do with number of cases the curse to be flattened there have been slapping our curse on hospitalizations per day and that's per day to prevent overwhelming of the hospitals and to understand that you sort of have controlled the progress of death there's a nuance to this this sort of a bore your audience but the reality is flattening the curve has nothing to do with changing the area under the curve this is very early on the point was to pro long and slow down and somehow reduce the overwhelming of the medical system and sort of in and out of control way so that we could administer care in control that kind of you know how to control sort of overwhelming issues but it was not really honestly to reduce the desk the reduction of deaths should be it should be this targeted policy of protecting the vulnerable we know who they are now the idea I want to mention something about the idea of vaccines there's just sort of naive interpretation of what a vaccine does and when it will come out okay and and this is not really I'm not trying to criticize people but you get that the general populace and even at people in this debate I've been very naive about this vaccines are not magic wands typically speaking you know it's very common that vaccine vertically for respiratory virus that has some evolution in changing that occurs like let's talk about influenza forty to sixty percent effective and we've been working on vaccines for influenza for many many years and have a lot of experience that's point number one there's no magic wands here that all of a sudden it's a hundred percent effective we don't know we have no idea about that but we know from other infections that it it it it may not be the second point is that despite the vaccines in influenza four hundred thousand to six hundred fifty thousand people die in the world every year from seasonal flu with the vaccine okay so you know the vaccine is not a magic wand B. about the vaccine is that vaccines are not ready tomorrow Texans are not going to be ready in a month the vaccine technology has dramatically improved and things are done with a massive amount of intention and rapidity in an incredible effort by the private sector and in the US in the academic sector as well as in the UK and and elsewhere lots of vaccines are being looked at probably a hundred roughly in a couple who have a significant amount of promise when will they be ready when will they be ready for production when will they be ready for implementation we're talking many many months so we don't know exactly when it's it's highly unlikely in my view and and it's impossible to predict because I predict I'll be I'll be way off but it's not going to be happening before twenty twenty one I mean almost certainly and you know even with the best case scenarios I really have to realize vaccines are not magic wands meantime there said Matt we can't ignore this massive harms from the current policy extending total isolation is killing people on the basis of the medical care and a catastrophic economic problem which converts into health care in poverty and death all over the world to the likes of which really people have not really calculated so final question for you Dr Alice so there's been people have been pushing it some Israeli scientists something called controlled avalanche which is basically make sure that everybody who is vulnerable is protected and then actually encourage people who are younger too not social distancing you sort of mentioned something like this in your article for the hill so in so is that something that we should be seriously considering just saying if you are under the age of forty and you're healthy you should go out you should go to ball games and if you get corona virus and then you get over it then you've actually added to the health of the country man this is really hitting the nail on the head sort of with the basic premise of immunology and decades of knowledge about about viruses it's actually a negative to interfere by total isolation with herd immunity herd immunity is necessary and it is the most immediately available way to break the connections towards the vulnerable in this contagious sort of disease so it's it's actually detrimental to lock everybody up and it prevents the low risk groups like you're saying to get the disease fifty percent of people are zero symptoms over ninety five percent of people probably ninety nine percent of people have very mild disease there's nothing wrong with that in the low risk groups the focus should be preventing the people who are the vulnerable we know who they are it's harmful to prevent mingling by other people well doctor Scott

"Haven't furnished information about fell in an actual way to people in ways that we ship nation about anything's going on in our lives and I think that's one thing that technology was benefit technology offers every time you fly on a plane. Jet Engines are being monitored hundreds thousands of times a minute We're beaming mentioned back. Down to Earth and routine maintenance of engines is done based on that information being the city now most of that's completely out of the awareness of the pilots. And there's a problem in which case the pilots aren't aware we should be able to have comparable types of information available in an ongoing basis about our health so that we can intervene before. It's a big disaster. So that we know what our propensity for certain diseases And they were able to take the competitive measures based on those risk factors. And we're only starting to see that really into our environment. Today I think the next five to ten years we're GONNA see rapid acceleration in the pace of that information becomes available to into me. I'm so glad you brought up that analogy because I highlighted it. Be The the idea that you know. Forty years ago an airplane would be inspected every few months Whereas now like the the. The health of the plane is being monitored while it's in the air that's a perfect analogy for what in theory we should be able to achieve soon With the sort of monitoring technology exactly it's within our grasp It's not trivial but it was definitely within our class. Can I ask about There's been some discussion recently about you. Know there's a lot of concern by people about their data and and handing over their data and especially now their health data People are worried about the control of their own data. But you write that. In the current healthcare system there are these weird perverse incentives to sort of hoard information and not share. It so again how. How should I square this? People's fears of their data not being under their control verses. Maybe data isn't being shared enough and thus the healthcare system is not as efficient as it could be. Here are some legitimate concerns about data sharing board ensure the security data and we want to make sure that patients have control over where their in. How the data's been news that being said these perverse incentives that I I write about in. The book are related to the fact that for healthcare delivery systems once a patient is enrolled in a delivery system. It's in the business interests of that system to keep the patient in the system And one of the ways doing that of course the best way being that. It's making sure that assistance offering outstanding care in patient centered way with monitoring patient satisfaction. And all the things that other used to make sure we consumer stay engaged with their services and their products. But it other way to keep people in a system is to make it really difficult for their information to be transferred from one place. Someone system to the next is a lot of federal legislation that has been devoted to addressing those problems and making sure that their regulatory guidelines that require systems to Make data transportable and to really placed the patient data in the hands in control of the patient when patients want to have that sort of access control over. Their data are not commissioning here for that. The data will be more portable in the future Certainly we now have. The technology needed some nights data interchangeable in ways. That wasn't in the past. So it's not per se a technological barrier that's committing data from one health system to be transferred to the other even on different the HR systems technology barriers are being lowered because of Sophistication Technology. But there still are some economic and and business related barriers. That I think the federal regulatory space is helping to address. Finally you write about This precision health vision that you have is one of a high touch environment not just a high tech environment like precision. Health should be about strengthening the doctor patient relationship not replacing it not taking the the doctors the humans out of the equation right exactly. That's that's absolutely essential. We'd gone through a period for the past to twenty years where I fear that. Technology has done more to separate healthcare providers from consumers from patients than it has been able to bring people together to bring patients and providers together. We we have to overcome that I and that's why I do talk about high pick enabling high touch. There's nothing more disappointing For patients for frankly healthcare provider than when. You're as a patient you know. Sitting in the exam room. The healthcare provider walks in and the first thing they do is go to the terminal and start typing. Maybe they say hello. Maybe they make eye contact briefly again. They're looking at the screen and they're typing and maybe they're listening. Fli or maybe. They're concentrating on what they have to type in order to complete documentation requirements. That just has to change. No one goes to a healthcare provider To be looking back of their head while they're talking into a computer terminal and and we can change that and just push forward and make sure that we did. The book again is discovering precision. Health predict prevent and cure to advance health and wellbeing. Dr Minor. Thank you so much for coming on the show to talk about this. Thank you very much. It's a privilege.

Climate change and mental health
"Joining us to discuss the toll climate change could take on our mental physical health is Paul R. Bucky's professor emeritus of emergency medicine Stanford at the university Medical Center and also co author of enviro medics the impact of climate change on human health welcome professor about good to have you with us good morning Michael thank you good morning to you and we also want to welcome robin Cooper who's here with us in studio psychiatrist in private practice in San Francisco and co founder of climate psychiatry alliance welcome to the program thank you I'm glad to be here glad to have you with us here and Tucker about let me begin with you and let's begin by just talking about what we know generally at this point we know certainly that the extreme weather and sea level rise or really affecting all kinds of illnesses and creating all kinds of problems in our physical health sketch that out for us if you could the list of health related effects from climate change our is is enormous there are the obvious that you mentioned the heat waves the heat stress the extreme weather events floods hurricanes nine it cetera but there are many others that haven't come to the forefront yet like the migration of factors like mosquitoes and other creatures that cause communicable diseases that will move as the planet warms you have a superb mental health expert on the show with this which is terrific because there are profound mental health the facts and then all the issues related to lack of access to clean water migration of people food security the issue of increased allergic exposures the harmful algal blooms that we're seeing from microorganisms that are proliferating in the ocean and then the broader range of problems that will relate eventually to lack of bio diversity to the erosion of ecosystem services all the inter relationships and how it all winds in so it's quite an impressive list and an overwhelming listen anyway so we wanna staggered add just all the things that can result or they can be consequential from climate change and you mention mental health let's bring robin Cooper this one of the main things you find that you really need services to be aware of in terms of the affected impact on mental health problems well let me start first with just kind of alerting people climate change is a health emergency it's a mental health emergency and a health emergency and I think in regards to the mental health impacts people tend to think about the good that kind of things that you can easily relate to how traumatic the posttraumatic stress syndromes and depression when people lose huge amounts of things in their lives due to the enormous weather related to disasters so what we know about the wild fires what we know about floods what we know about the impact from hurricanes it some are the posttraumatic stress is enormous what I think is much much less understood are that there are profound behavioral thinking problem psychiatric problems that are specifically related just to heat extremes themselves to air pollution that people tend to think about air pollution as affecting their as my lung disease but it actually has a very specific attacks on the on the brain and pervasive this affects throughout the lifecycle so I think it's important just as our previous speakers spoke on that the mental health impacts are very diverse and very expensive and very serious one ought to add because they also include things like more aggression and violence you kind of alluded to this your intimated about it but it's definitely cause and effect were talking about that absolutely he extremes we all kind and this went in our colloquial language hot under the collar I am so angry my blood is boiling or the admonition Hey be cool man when we're really angry she actually but our scientific evidence supports this we really know that heat extreme heat impact aggression anger and make it much more difficult for people who are vulnerable to not being able to control their behavior to act on their aggression and anger that has very specific impacts for domestic violence for impacts on women and children and I'm very concerned about that robin cook again as a psychologist in private practice in San Francisco co founder of climate psychiatry alliance Paul about his professor emeritus of emergency medicine Stanford Medical Center and co author of enviro medics the impact of climate change on human health only go back to professor are back and just talk about since this was alluded to by robin Cooper the vulnerable populations who turned out to be well the most vulnerable as one would expect the greatest impact in fact on health and physical health is on poor people and on the youngest and the oldest but also on minority communities in on immigrants and homeless and disabled absolutely and that's been well studied and before I address that I'd just like to go back for second and just add to what robin said because there's a whole nother large overlay on this mental health issue which relates to socially disadvantaged populations which is this general increase in cultural anxiety all are feeling somewhat helpless in the face of this and having been a disaster respond or in the past you walk into really nasty situations and it can seem overwhelming and you can you can question your ability to do anything and I think we're facing that now a little bit and part of this because it's not necessarily a happy talk is to be real but to say there are absolutely things that we can do that might not have immediate effect but if we all pull together in unprecedented ways based on modern times and the political situation we can make progress and we can start to turn things around I don't want people to give up hope but what specifically you're talking about here because we need that help I think you're absolutely right bring it up here because you can get really down just thinking about what we're talking about well this is a this is a problem we can solve for if we have the will to solve for it it's not a zero sum game I think we have to start looking at the fact that we're going to need to make changes just with regard to the climate in how we approach our economic system some of the industries that we support and the changes that will have to make in the way that people live their lives in order to protect their men to reverse the degradation that were imposing on the planet and that takes a collective will it takes functional governments it takes citizen response it takes upon ourselves up now and realizing that we're in the biggest battle that we've ever faced this is uncharted territory so I'm not laying blame anywhere I'm saying okay we've got a problem now let's bring the best and brightest minds together and let's deal with it and as you said it affects disproportionately people who can't take care of themselves it's it's hard to argue with someone not to burn fuel in a kerosene stove when they need to do that to survive so we have to give people alternatives we have to be able to present people that are displaced with places to live in health care and hope and respect and all the social determinants of health that go into having a functioning properly oriented society in a big company and I think from you Dr Cooper's don't panic don't panic the chronicle put out a piece this weekend about panic let me just address and I can't agree more fully with the the comments that have already been made but let me go back to some of these distress and drums that I think we're all kind of preoccupied with now this kind of umbrella term it's a shorthand climate on the eco eggs ID climb in anxiety that's a shorthand term for lots and lots of big feelings and it is absolutely appropriate for us to have anxiety worry our brains are wired for us they have intense feelings when there are threats and this is a real threat in fact I learned a new term thanks to your research cell steadier this helps in certain terms about existential grief and psychic distress of people feel over well this concern over their homeland and environmental changes that have to do also with the child's psychological development those kind right this call without you it's a fancy word and it kind it relates to that intense distress but from this Dow Jones looking back on what used to be that intense grief when we experience the lack of ability to soothe ourselves from our environment in those soothing places that we use to get on a soulless from that's only one component and I think we're spear seem much more now people who are in a cute states of worry and anxiety as I said those are the feelings that alert us to do something when we're in danger the trouble is when the when the emotions are so big so into ends so overwhelming that we can't contain them into manageable ways to respond we also have brains that that can be planned full and strategic and that's really important to in gender that sense that there are things we can do and that we can make a difference in important ways both then sue the in these very very big feelings but I'm not also in the game of just let's feel good I want us to translate that big energy from big feelings factual effective action no I'm with you there is a good doctor about his many of our listeners are but he's from a mental health standpoint this can be overwhelming when you think about really what you're fit with what we're all facing here I mean in particular when you're thinking about well children in the future and when young people are thinking about their future and so forth it can be downright depressing and is for many people as you discover no doubt your practice absolutely I saw I'm sorry I see this in my practice I see this in my practice mostly when there's an intrusion from some awful event has that has just happened parents who came in a mom after the solutions to what you tell your patients and I want to go to professor about because I know he wants it here I mean some specific tools of people can have other than you know I can exercise my will I can do something and maybe compel yourself in that fashion toward action it's not what I tell my patients it's not that I tell my patients that's not my job as a psychotherapist my pet my job with a psychotherapist is to listen understand validate and help to them to contain their feelings so that they can translate that into effective ways to make a difference in behaviors in their lives and then the world's they live in we have the same okay it's the scope of psychotherapy we can help but psychotherapy isn't the place has since then has to come from them I understand that you are what you wanted in here well I'm I'm with that a hundred percent because I think I'm going to say it just a slightly different way and that is in my experience action is the is the overwhelming solution to the inner behaviors that we see when people get depressed it's getting about bad bad it's getting them to begin to engage in the activities of daily living and it's to find solutions through self help and through empowerment so this all comes to how do we begin to relate to each other and less polarizing fashion how do we get climate change to be a problem that we all are going to face through whatever means we have through our expertise through our government's it cetera the medical profession is starting to step up big time to support this we certainly need are governments to step up and begin to put aside their relentless differences and start to act in a functioning way to support the people that they were elected to support we need to integrate environmental responsibility into our own lives granted that won't have the same impact is reforming the fossil fuel industry but it gets everybody on the same page about the importance of it and I would say that the single most important factor is to take a personal responsibility for your fellow human beings it's really easy to step back and say it's not my problem but it is our problem no I think those are very good and an important and valuable sentiments the fact is so there's so much to we have no control over when we're talking about extreme events like hurricanes and floods and the effect that they have on people psychologically or the destruction that it causes and wreaks in people's lives these are things that the along with pollution and along with some of the other things we've touched upon here that we we don't have many things in our tool kits to to fight against a I think that's where it becomes so frustrating for many people and your thoughts doctor Cooper I actually don't see it that way I actually think will more stuck in it is so big all of the things that you've outlined that promotes a kind of psychological defensive retreat there's nothing I can do I might as well back off I actually don't think that's true I think that there are many many ways and I strongly I think they're both for managing our own feelings but also for the active involvement in the many many ways that collaboratively add up there is an incredible importance to fend off the kind of hopelessness you've outlined the offender and hurricane the psychological no but you can act and you can act in ways that are collaborative with other people the worst thing to do is to retreat into personal isolation the most healing thing to do is to engage with others in shared action I want to be brilliant a psychological intervention from our leader Nancy Pelosi don't agonize organize and there is a place for everyone to move with groups of people outside of that isolation in many ways to have contributions I think it's like viewing a puzzle and there are pieces of the puzzle that all add up together and they can go across the board Paul are back with the vice we're getting and I think it's on advice from robin Cooper about for example we have to worry about our nutrition because food is being affected by climate

"Thank you so much for joining us. Thanks for having me pre right off the bat. Let me just ask you this. How disappointed where you're South Asian parents that you do not become a doctor? It's it's it's actually a bit of a sore point. My mom will we made a couple of medical videos, and actually we had partnered with Stanford medical school to do them. I'm forty three. Now. This was I was probably this is when Khan Academy had already become a real thing. I I must have been about thirty six thirty seven when my mom found out about those videos. She literally asked me whether I could now get a little credit for Mets faster. Did you make joking? Did you make? I know when we talk about our parents were never joking. Did you do that in part to appease them in part? Maybe. Did nothing it just it. Just amplified the disappointment. How'd you how'd you pick the name? So so interesting the name Khan Academy. How did you? How did you come up with that? You know, hey, I'm actually quite sensitive about that. Because I fun of I used to make fun of people who would name things after themselves. I thought it was a very narcissistic thing to do. But in the early days of Khan Academy before it was even called kind of kademi when I was working with family members. I was writing software for them. And I wanted to call it something this was before I'd even made YouTube videos, and a lot of domain names were already taken up, and the one thing that was available was was kinda kademi. And the reason why I picked academy. I was almost a joke. It was me. And my family members my last name, and then my the kademi I thought it would be nice if it had an air of being something that could turn into an institution, and that's something that eventually I I do want it to turn into another dimension of it, even when we incorporated as a nonprofit that actually was a reason in a pseudo strategic way while so wanted Convair because an for profit. I don't own any shares. There's no formal. Lover of control. But I thought, hey, you know, at least if my name's on it. They would only fire me in an extreme circumstance that would have to find another con or they would have to change the name. Although, you know, pecan academies. It sounds cool and it works if your name if I'd done this. I'm not sure Berar academy would have worked. It's too many syllables. I think he's got a ring to it. But if you had if you had a podcast, you might call it. Stay tuned with pre. So I put my name in it also. So I so I also can't be judgment. So a lot of people may not be familiar with the amazing story of how Khan Academy started. So you disappointed your parents by not going to medical school? Maybe made them feel a little bit better by going to a hedge fund, and you're a hedge fund guy and explain what happened. Yeah. My real training and background was in tech..

I, you know, my my son in law is a Jamaican American. My daughter met him at Harvard. No, actually, my son met him at Harvard. And then my daughter met him at Stanford medical school where they both went to medical school. And she will tell you that he worked twice as hard and twice as long as everybody else. Not because he needed to to keep up. But because he's brilliant, and he he deserved to be in those schools competing with everyone else equally. Nobody should come along anytime in question academic credentials NC that was exactly where I was going when he came time for his internship.

"And so so there's some of these are just sort of bad habits to get picked up. Again, not deliberate is just kind of the momentum of the field. I think also a lot of this is driven by individuals, young scientists who are trying to make a Mark, a lot of the research that go. That takes places actually done in the hands of a post doctoral scientists. Somebody who's gotten their PHD in his trying to build a career in science. That's a tough road because, oh. Probably about twelve percent of these people in who get these post doc will actually end up on a tenure track job, which is kind of what everybody wants. So it's a, it's a very cutthroat world and even highly talented scientists don't make the cut and and so it sort of comes down to you have a few years in somebody's laboratory, and you've got to get fabulous results, or your career is going to take a very sharp turn. And so that kind of incentive is just is just baked into the process. And it's not that someone says, well, I'm just going to do whatever it takes, but people start seeing what they want to see in their experimental results as opposed to sort of stepping back and and maybe being a little bit more skeptical or so on. And you know, I'm certainly not an expert in laboratory techniques. I'm not going to go out there and say that people are just using, you know, terrible laboratory technique, but I think that it is the case that scientists aren't necessarily thinking through these things as carefully as they can because the incentives are not there for them to do that. This is one of those incredibly thorny subjects and Akkad. -demia thinking through the incentive models for scientists because it pokes at training and tenure and money, and it and status. And so it's deeply intertwined with with history and some external pressures that the university faces. And I, I think one of the things like after working at a university for for decades is that most universities that I've seen are small c, conservative in a lot of nature's, they, they usually don't change big structure elements like this quickly. Is that your survey shin and reporting on this book as well? And do you see hope for change around any of these incentives? Both. I agree with you that universities tend to be very conservative and you know, universities really want their scientists to go out and bring home the federal research dollars. So whatever works if they're researchers are bringing in the dollars, that is how they measure success. Even if the studies that they're producing what those dollars. Turn out not to be that helpful in the long run. So so the incentives for the universities are also a little bit askew, but there is hope in an actually I, I am seeing some changes as a result of this of this sort of soul-searching. One great example is I was talking to Steve Goodman who's at the Stanford University medical school, and he was talking about the fact that he'd been asked to write a letter of recommendation for somebody who is up for tenure, and he started doing the usual thing which was reviewing a bunch of their. Journal articles and talking about how many things hit pub. This person had published and so on and doing sort of the quantitative stuff. And his letter was kicked back and they said, Dr. Goodman, what we really want you to do is focus on, you know, get away from all this quantitative stuff, which is unfortunately far too often how scientists get picked for tenure or whatever. And you know, tell us if this person is doing good science and you know, let's get, let's get beyond the sort of, you know how many papers did they publish in science nature and sell because we're de emphasizing that at the Stanford medical school and and Dr Goodman was thrilled to hear that that his own institution was was starting to change its culture about how it thought about this stuff..
