"When it comes sports betting canada just past see to eighteen into law which allows what we call single game betting up but before this particular bill. Canada had sports betting but was a different kind of sports betting. Can you explain what. Canada had before this passage of the new law. Sure we it. Basically what it was because the restriction the criminal code said. You can't bet on the outcome of a single sporting events and so Gimme candid kind. Grew out of Provincial lottery corporations these government agencies that often lottery products and those companies those organizations evolved to some offering casinos and building casinos to now online offerings The lowest part of this was a sports product sports. We always refer to sports lottery in lottery. Bamyan opera words for me because They're mostly selling it a three-game parlays As a minimum bet and you know the margins really good Which means the customer really didn't like it very much and and so that park was doing you know total wages book five hundred million a year and hadn't really grown hadn't really evolved much But the can't in canada because of the growth hormone gaming we have what we often referred to as a very strong gray market because the laws in canada around internet gaming want clear and weren't clear from a couple of a lot of corporations were free to get into the business. And maybe i can be larry corporation to their plano dot com jerry robust platform It's it's They do a really good job. The very good sports. I they just don't have seen in denver and others haven't had much on sports product at all but online gaming grew and you should canada's our law talked about the provinces having jurisdiction over gaming within their jurisdictions and it's the within the jurisdiction so i go to bed three six five and we're and i place my bet. Well my placing it in stoke-on-trent uk me in my living room where i live in toronto and the laws not clear and and most lawyers legal opinions were offering no. It's actually probably not occurring in canada and which means can't enforce the laws extra-territorially so there was this version gray market to the tune of a total hanikos.

Vaccinated Pelosi and Biden Aides Test Positive for COVID-19

"House official today confirmed that another Biden administration official and an aide to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, tested positive for the coronavirus after attending an event together. At least one of the cases may be linked to a group of Texas Democrats who came to Washington last week amid a battle in the state legislature over voting rights. Six of the Texas lawmakers have tested positive for the coronavirus, including a former nurse who announced her test results today. Simon Marx reports the White House has disclosed that a fully vaccinated staff member has tested positive for Covid 19. And isn't the first. Meanwhile on Capitol Hill, the congressional physician says the delta variant has now been identified in the compounds buildings. Some members of Congress and staff members. Also fully vaccinated are reported to have tested positive for the virus at the White House press secretary Jen Psaki if you're vaccinated You are protected. If you get a case of covid, it will be mild. If you are not vaccinated, you could be. We hope not. But among the professor at the people who go to the hospital and get very sick from the virus. The data is very clear. So part of our objective is also not to stoke fear among people who are vaccinated because the data is pretty clear about their protection. Simon marks

"Here in other words you they heard and that is what people like yana. Najuma hope to do on saturday. Your points on each other because we know were all that we have in this moment in time that we shared together. She says we will come as strangers but we will leave as family for the world. I'm rebecca cancer in shanghai in north korea. The ruling party has been meeting this week. According to state media leader. Kim jong un says countries prepare for both dialogue and confrontation with the united states. The statement comes days after the. Us and other group of seven nations called on north korea to abandon its nuclear weapons program. Our next guest has been following this closely. John everard is a former ambassador from the uk to north korea ambassador dialogue and confrontation. Those were kim jong un's words it's kind of like prepare for night and day. How do you interpret that. They've been saying this or something very similar for quite a long time now. Keeping both doors open stressing that they're open to dialogue but they're prepared to stand up for themselves if they feel that they're on and entity is being infringed in their favorite phrase all if they feel the. us is bullying them so the formulation was not a tremendous surprise. There's been other news out of the ruling party conference as well. Kim jong made reference to the fact that there have been food shortages in north korea. Admitting that seems big for him what are you reading into that close. You have to look at kim jong un's remarks on this alongside the latest report on the food situation in north korea from the food and agriculture organization the united nations which came out just a few days ago in the fourteenth of june. And there's quite a difference. The united nations is saying that yes. North korea is sort of food with north korea. Usually is sort of food and this year doesn't look very much worse than previous years but the north korean regime is clearly very worried about the food situation either kim's on and his advisors knew something that the united nations don't know to make them believe the food situation is actually a great deal worse or he is worried about the gap between what is going on on the ground in north korea and his own rhetoric. This goes back to the singapore summit. We all focused on. What president trump and Chairman kim said to each other but the real message the north korean people was what he showed. Singapore uncensored pictures of modern glistening city state lights on bright skyscrapers and this went out. Primetime north korean television champion. Kim was leading the north korean. People that things will get better is getting them a vision of the future. Three years on he hasn't delivered on any of those imply promises. Indeed life has got quite a lot harder for orrin north. Koreans and i think the politically akins on on is starting to feel the heat. Well that's interesting because there has been speculation about kim jong himself. There were these photos that were released recently. That showed him looking noticeably thinner than before there was also a document leaked a few weeks ago saying he may have a new second in command. So what's going on with kim jong un. I have to say that. The evidence that i've seen for real serious health problems is being rather scant. I am left wondering whether the move that we saw in the party. Congress in january where as you rightly say the congress created the position of a second in command in the party whether they are designed to reflect not physical weakness but political weakness. Whether kim jong un is actually things slowly pushed to the sidelines in the actual implementation of power in north korea. It may be that. The shock of failed annoy summit and remember that americans present in the room. They're the said. When president trump walked out and kim went white. This is the shock of his political life that the failure of that policy has damaged him to the extent. That bigwigs in the party are moving to a system where life can work without chairman. Kim have signed all the papers. If so that will be a tremendous step if you were advising president biden. miss sorta. How would you tell them to proceed through what appears to be some early signs of some kind of pivot. I would suggest the renews efforts to establish a channel dialogue with north korea. Now this is a frustrating job. The administration thing to do this ever since it came to office and has got very little response. Maybe a message of some kind to ten kim. Just telling him that president biden. I've heard what you say dollar confrontation. Let's do dialogue and see what he says john. Everard is a former british diplomat. Who was uk ambassador to north korea from two thousand six to two thousand eight ambassador. Thank you very much for your thoughts. You'll very welcome. We'll be right back with the second half of the show. You're listening to the world. If you're one of those looking to buy a new car be prepared to wait or pay through the nose. Now is not the time to buy if you can hold off. When i was looking for a car. The guy asked me for six thousand dollars above sticker prices at. You know what. I'll see you in a year.

"You're listening to the world. I'm marco werman returning to coverage of the juneteenth celebration over the past few years understanding and recognizing the day has steadily been increasing. And not just here in the us. The world's rebecca kanther in shanghai with black americans and china about marking this important holiday far from the place where it started. A yana. jemma is an american teacher. Working in china she moved here for years ago after fifteen years working in cincinnati public schools. She says she has no intention of returning. I am safe as a brown person in china you know. Of course there are cici tv cameras everywhere on trying our comings and goings and so that allows me rate deal of comfort. Chances are no one is going. Try to harm. The juma says. She's enjoying her time here. But it can feel isolating. The city she lives in huffy has more people than new york city. But numa says she can count on one hand. The number of people seen who looked like her. That's why this weekend. Nujoma is traveling. Almost three hundred miles away to shanghai to join one of china's first juneteenth celebrations. The duma says. She celebrated the holiday as a child at barbecues. Her mom helped organize. This will be her first time celebrating in china. I'm looking forward to getting some real serious books. we'll knowledge those deep soul grabbing hugs. Some of the organizers of shanghai's juneteenth celebration actually didn't grow up observing the holiday bruce robinson and his wife tests came to shanghai fifteen years ago on a one year assignment and ended up staying now. He works as an executive coach here. You can't find your community and you can recreate that black experience. Even outside the united states before the pandemic he organized a black. Men's group a kind of barbershop group for networking and mentoring. But they haven't met in person for over a year now he says china recovers from cova nineteen. The time is ripe for a return to in person gatherings chino's to come together and celebrate our heritage. Even though many of us are not able to return home some people haven't seen their loved ones for over a year. And i really think people are looking for that sense of community. He and the other organizers thought juneteenth celebration might be a way to grow the black business network here black owned businesses will be at the event selling their products and services. There's an entrepreneurship by example and of recycling black dollars. If you will through commerce fellow organizer william frazier. I came to shanghai twenty years ago. He put down roots here married a chinese woman and started his own business even though he's never actually celebrated juneteenth before he says he hopes this will become an annual celebration with music art and culture it s his.

But the consultant went as far as saying that i shouldn't trust any supermarket or drugstore brand and even some products that i buy from places like a dole beauty which also stokes the same brand that they talk sir was she being a total smelled or is there any merit in what she was saying.

'cause macedo brands affordable prices. Still some of the products out there on the eighty ninety dollar mark but they have some really affordable effective skincare.

The Dos and Don'ts of Refinancing Your Mortgage

"Here are the do's and don'ts of refinancing a mortgage do interview lenders. Like you would doctor or a lawyer whom you plan to use. Not all lenders programs are the same. Not all fees are the same. Ask these basic questions of all of them. I which refinancing options are available for me and what would estimate of my monthly payments for those scenarios be second. What are the up-front costs third. What are the fees for appraisals. Credit checks escrow and anything else associated with mortgage. Don't be unrealistic about the value of your home. It just stalls the process. And i hope this goes without saying but don't lead the appraiser on ever just like you wouldn't tell someone on your first day that you're the manager of your team if you haven't quite gotten the promotion yet even if you feel like a promotion is all but in the bag that little white lie will bite you in the ass. The same thing will happen with an appraiser if you have upgrades or improvements to do on your house that would increase its value. Do them before you start the refinancing process. Don't promise the appraiser fixes that just hasn't happened yet next. Do ask if you have to pay a prepayment penalty for paying your current loan off early. Don't go for this thing called a float down which lets you take advantage of a lower rate if interest rates fall by the time the refinance goes through which is thirty to sixty days. It's a good option to have when buying the home but a quote lock in which rate locks whatever you had agreed to even if the rate goes up is usually what you want in a refinance if rates happened to go down a significant amount. And you actually really need and want to take advantage of that. You can always cancel the refinance and go somewhere else and start over now. The original lender probably is not going to be stoked but it is business.

So there's a twenty out of twenty one chance that this person is unknown. It's just not the case that everybody is opening any four against tight. Big blind is just not. Maybe it's probably the case but the weighted average of all the opening ranges. you're facing just is not one hundred percent ranch and it's not like a small technical point.

Olympians: Tidye Pickett

"Olympian has largely been left out of the history books despite being the first african american woman to compete in the olympics. Let's talk about tidy. Picket tidy pickett was born in nineteen fourteen in. Chicago's englewood neighborhood. Her family lived across the street from washington park where local foot races were often held. Tidies talent and speed were evident. She caught the eye of city officials. Who recruited her for the chicago park district. Track team tidies. First big break came after competing in chicago. Armory event john brooks who at the time was a university of chicago athlete. And one of the country's best long jumpers asked tidies parents if he could coach her. He promised a shot at the olympics and in nineteen thirty two. He made good on that promise. By the time she reached highschool tidy was one of the fastest women in the united states in nineteen thirty two. She was selected to be a member of the olympic. Four by one hundred relay pool. The final racers would be selected at the games which were being held in los angeles along with louis. Stokes tidy was one of two african american women for the olympic track and field team. She was just seventeen years old when we was eighteen. The two were subjected to a myriad of racist attacks and policies on the train to la. Louise and tidy were put in a separate room near the service area. They eat meals alone rather than with the rest of the delegation in the banquet hall. One point there teammate.

"And how do we get in place federally well, one key thing is to put pressure on Democrats to stop taking money from electric utilities and that there was a big campaign run in Virginia I think back in two thousand eighteen. To, get politicians to stop taking money from dominion and it worked a lot of politicians stop taking money in the next year they passed one of these clean energy target we're talking about and similarly. What's happening in Ohio is just raising a lot of awareness in terms of the fact that governor dewine takes lots of money from these companies, the speaker of the house, of course, Larry Householder did but the head of the Senate did to politicians all across the board including Democrats are in bed with first energy and ADP and even Tim Ryan who ran for president and took the no fossil fuel money pledge, which includes not money from utility. He took money from I energy and he didn't even give it back when Emily Atkin, the the independent journalists pointed out that he had done that so. We've got to put pressure on politicians to not take money from these industries, and he sometimes people think that doesn't matter I've actually done a lot of research and a colleague of Mine, David Brockman, at UC Berkeley also research which shows that when politicians take money from industries. Their staff are more likely to underestimate support for. Climate Action, and done this thing called list experiment, which I won't bore you with details basically allows us to figure out when get around lying. So we get more honest answers with this kind of experiment and what we find is that forty five percent of chiefs of Staff and legislative directors in Congress have admitted to changing their mind about a bill after speaking with the campaign contributor. We also from David Brock work that Josh Cala they are more likely to gain access they're more likely to get a meeting if their campaign contributor. So campaign contributions give access they changed minds. They they cause political staff and their offices to not care about the issue as much. So we have got to get utility money out of politics. Now that is something that we can work on through public campaigns and there are lots of great groups.

"So we have a bit of a demand surge All of that is happening and I got an email from my local utility, Southern California, Edison sce, and they said, hey, if you are a solar customer, you could really help us out right now by putting your solar back onto the grid, and by the way if you could, you know if you're an energy efficiency person, you could reduce your energy that would really help and I had to laugh because these utilities have spent all this time saying that solar is terrible and it messes up the. System and that they're absolutely awful and when it comes to implementing energy efficiency programs, often utilities are tasked to do it and they don't do a very good job and yet when we come to this crisis where they're struggling to manage the grid, suddenly their whole tune changes and they actually solar is really helpful and so is energy efficiency and all I can think is well, wouldn't it be nice if you had supported that stuff a little bit more wouldn't we be in a better situation today? Are there are there solutions here are their paths? Are there models for breaking up the sort of corruption of utilities and they're? They're sort of addiction to the poisonous status quo and making them. Turning them into essentially tools of green energy conversion. I. Think There are few ideas. First of all, I know with citizens united that there is an idea in the United States that corporations can spend unlimited funds on. Political speech. However, I don't feel that that should apply to monopoly electric utilities with a guaranteed customer base because as we've been talking about, you don't get to choose who you buy your electricity from electricity is an essential service. So if I don't like that my utility is anti climate action or is using money from my rates to fund dark money campaigns I, don't have any. Exit option I can't go choose to buy from somebody else. So I think that they're real legal questions as to whether or not monopoly utilities with a guaranteed profit and unlimited funds to spend on.

"To show up for a public hearing and pretend they wanted to build this gas plant. I. Wow, I mean if you think about it, it's like they must. They're like at the front edge of regulatory capture because they're so big and they're so bound to regulatory decisions and everything in their bottom line depends entirely on that that they just they have to just. I, mean, they don't have to but but they're gonNA, naturally just like innovate in that space. Innovators. No. Seriously it's like the whole public choice critique, right? Is that if fundamentally profit depends on the regulatory environment, their innovations and investments won't be like better machinery and better grids and better power. The the thing they're going to invest in is corruption. They're going to become good very good at figuring out how to corruptly manipulate the system whether that's bribing. The House. The State House, speaker or getting actors to come before them. Yeah. Now it's really quite. Crazy to think of the more I studied utilities. The more I feel like there's just so much every day regulatory capture that goes on and they really just end up defining the system how they want it and they're not interested in building the clean energy future. They're not really investing in that. They are instead investing in delay and I'll say what a lot of people don't know. Everybody knows about Exxon new and Chevron and BP, and all the money that fossil fuel companies put into climate denial. But what I discovered in writing my book and also in some research I'm doing right now is that. Electric utilities were right alongside fossil fuel companies. The whole way they were funding the global climate coalition. Even today the Edison Electric Institute, which is the Trade Association of private. Utilities. They literally gave an award to first energy for passing that corrupt Ohio bill they gave them the. Great off. The. Bribe of the year. Award from the Industry Group. Well okay. So then so I think that's really important because when we think about climate villains, everyone knows fossil fuel companies are our client villains but utility and in some ways, it's like the utilities are more the full criminal fossil fuel companies are in some ways because like that is actually how you get your power and as as. Clean Energy sources get cheaper more available they're either going to go to war to cut them off or they're going to accept them and adapt to them and even push them ahead and right now it seems like there's been a bunch of fights and a bunch of states where utility company doing everything they can to like they view solar particularly rooftop solar as a life and death competitor because if power is not centralized if you can just..

"So they have a pretty unlimited source of money and they use a lot of that money to lobby at the public. Utility Commission but also lobbying state legislatures and even to the federal government to try to shape policy. So unfortunately, our political system has become fairly captured by these companies over time. Do you want to give an example that I mean I thought the I don't know how deep you want to go on the Ohio situation, but it's wild. Yeah. The Ohio situation is pretty crazy as you mentioned in the opening speaker of the House Larry Householder in Ohio was arrested at his. Farm, I believe a last month and He was arrested by the FBI on bribery allegations because. Speaker householder was largely elected to be speaker because I energy wanted him to serve that role. I energy funneled an enormous amount of money not just to his election campaign, but to the election campaigns of all the people who would vote for him to be speaker because speaker household there wasn't very popular. He had lost his seat previously as the speaker. For corruption, believe it or not. So you know he wasn't really a clean politician to begin with and the reason why I energy wanted him in that position of power was so that they could jam through a coal bailout to keep open several coal plants that they had invested in which we're losing enormous amounts of money. And you know they ended up funneling more than sixty million dollars to a dark money scheme and Larry Householder personally received about half a million dollars for things like his legal problems, his secondary home in Florida and his reelection campaign. So this was bribery plain and simple and the bill that they got past H. six is a multibillion dollar bailout for coal and nuclear plants in. Ohio. So it's a really big. Boondoggle for. Taxpayers and ratepayers in Ohio. So it worked I mean they they basically, they resuscitate this career politician, they fund him. And both political career personally, right like he he actually is getting money in his pocket and he steers through a multibillion dollar bailout for this utility company bailout, bad coal and nuclear investments. Yeah, and you know the nuclear. Funds may be legitimate we may need to keep nuclear plants open. They're the largest source of carbon free electricity in this country but the problem is that the law that was passed a blank check with zero oversight and it was written intentionally to be that way, and that means that part of the money I energy solutions used to keep open a coal plant the Sam's plant that was already scheduled to close. This is a plant that they probably sunk forty to fifty million dollars in two from the nuclear bailout. So you know this is a really big sweetheart giveaway with no transparency and. It's going to involve keeping at least three coal plants open for decades to come. That is going to make the air, of course, much dirtier for people living in Ohio, and it's going to continue to jack up carbon emissions for the entire planet in terms of role that utilities play when you talk about these plans, right?.

"Stokes we are so glad you're here what the heck is happening in Ohio right now. Well it goes back way farther and time I, first started working on this in two, thousand, thirteen and At that time a different legislator who I wonder when his day of reckoning is coming named bill sites, he was working to try to get rid of the renewable energy and energy efficiency. Laws that had been passed in a bipartisan way in Ohio and He is actually working with somebody named Sam. Randazzo. Who at the time was a lobbyist for the industrial energy users of Ohio basically, a big industrial company consumer electronics that you know includes probably fossil fuel companies in. Many. States, manufacturers that kind of thing. Well, fast. Forward a few years. Salmon data is now the head regulator at the Ohio Public Utilities Commission which you're just like really. Anyway, they were trying to gut the renewables and energy efficiency laws. To some degree John, casick was opposed to that although certainly not enough and so they only managed to freeze the rollback of the energy efficiency and renewable energy laws, but it still put huge damage and the industry. At the same time Keith Faber. who was another part of the legislative leadership? At the time he put in a budget bill, a rider, a sort of line item that change the setback rules for wind turbines, which basically means how far from a property line or building. There's a wind project needs to be, and that completely gutted the wind energy industry in Ohio. John Casick, as governor could have line item vetoed fat change but he didn't and so there was all shady things going on to try to. Mess up renewable energy efficiency in Ohio and who's interested that serve it served I energy and ADP another utilities interest because they had all these existing plants, coal plants, nuclear plants that they needed to keep operating, and if they were being forced to build new clean energy renewables. Then, how are they gonNA keep that stuff working and at the same time was also going through this electricity restructuring and suddenly a lot of the plants that I energy and ADP had invested in were struggling financially I mean they literally. Were losing money in the market every time they operated. So with all that going on I, energy started to lobby the trump administration actually to get a bailout for their coal plants and they tried that for several years around twenty seventeen. In fact, the Energy Policy Institute a wonderful watchdog of utilities has shown that the first energy a corporate jet has flown to DC. Over thirty times since the trump administration began and that Rick Perry. The former secretary of energy has probably met with the CEO of first energy. So they're law being very heavily the trump administration as possible that this is where. The firkh minimum offer price rule came from. This is basically a coal plant subsidy that was put into the rules a couple years ago now anyway. So they're doing all these things and it wasn't quite paying their bills, and so they decided to get a bailout on the agenda at the beginning of two thousand nineteen when Larry Householder became the speaker of the House of Representatives in Ohio, and that's when things really started to pick up. Okay. So what exactly was HP's six? What was this spill out? Yes. So in twenty nineteen when Larry. Householder became speaker. It was actually a really big fight for him to get that role. People may not know this, but Larry Householder was speaker before and he ended up leaving that role because of an FBI investigation into these allegations of corruption, this cloud of corruption surrounding him back in the early two thousands. So he wasn't a popular peck but what happened was all of the candidates running for the House of Representatives. who supported Larry Householder suddenly had a lot of campaign money. They were doing very well in their elections and people notice that it was all of the. Candidates who had that money this shadowy support who ended up voting for Larry Householder. So he won the role of speaker and with that power, he began to do the bidding of first energy. First Energy at that time had spun off its generation assets, its nuclear and coal plants who that were. These are projects that weren't really doing very well, they were losing money financially and they'd put it in this new company called First Energy Solutions That company has now rebranded into Energy Harbor to way that these. Companies try to avoid scrutiny. They changed their names all the time, but it was called I energy solutions at that time and what they that was owned by a hedge fund and a bunch of hedge funds, and these investors really want to get their money back and so it started to seem like they were putting money a few million dollars. Let's say into lobbying and potentially even into. Campaign ads. So Organization called generation now. Popped up on the scene and nobody really knew where this organization came from and they were spending money on mailers to people saying that HP six, this law which was a bailout for nuclear and coal plants that this had to be passed and that you know it was. So in the interest of Ohio wins and if you weren't for it, it was because you you know the Chinese government was. Corrupt somehow involved in Ohio's energy system just completely bonkers. The Chinese government has absolutely nothing suit everything. And it passed and I mean I'm telling you the legislative session was done. Everybody had gone home and first energy just kept saying we need that money. You know we gotta get that money and they also kept changing how much money they need it exactly and the law ended up getting written in a way that I energy solutions would never need to open up their books or explain what they were going to do with this money. So they ended up calling a last minute vote which actually governor dewine a staffer from his office initially was going to get a state tax payer funded plane to. Go pick up the legislators to bring them back to the State House so that they could vote on this last minute corporate bailout. That's how crazy it was and by narrow.

"You're no longer using oil to fill your car. You're using clean electricity. So those are the kinds of changes that I suggest. People make rather than some of the changes that were often told that we should make that. Maybe people are not as excited about. I think this is really an important part because I was having this conversation about whether we should use paper Napkins or Napkin. Then is it worse to wash cloth Napkins? How much water am I using? Or what if I put the paper towel in the landfill which one is worse than slow difficult to compute? And can you even do a comparison? So don't get lost in all that noise. That is in many ways a tool of the fossil fuel industry to make you feel disempowered to make you feel stress to make you feel. You can never be perfect enough. This is not about purifying yourself. This is a political battle against vested interest groups who created a system that we are locked into none of us can unilaterally live in a low-carbon society not until we disrupt the power of the fossil fuel industry. And that's why it's so important I'd say more than your Napkins or your straws or whatever. How about having a conversation about climate change with somebody wants a day. Why not talk about the power of the fossil fuel industry and how they funded? Climate denial for decades how they have limited our investments in innovation. Federally we are not spending almost any money from a historical perspective on clean energy innovation but if we elect a new person in this fall a Democrat then we could finally start to invest money in the research and development of new technologies and that would allow all of us to have better choices to make in the first place. You know bill mckibben always says that if you want to be in the climate fight. Hypocrisy is the price of admission. So don't feel like you can't be talking about climate change or showing up the protests or writing a letter or getting involved politically in the climate fight. Because you're not pure enough. All of us are needed in the climate battle. It doesn't matter if you used a plastic Straw yesterday. You should be in the climate fight. Oh that's well said I'm a question about federal law. How would federal policy force states to change their source of energy makeup for a long time? Since the nineteen nineties advocates have been trying to pass a bill through Congress that would require all of our states to have these clean energy targets. What we really need to do is get our federal government to act and to pass what we would call a clean electricity standard and to say that every state in the country needs to be making progress and hitting these targets by this year unfortunately although advocates driving the nine hundred ninety s to do it and they really close in two thousand nine in a bill called the Waxman Markey Bill. Electric Utilities and fossil fuel companies have been very effective at blocking policy from passing Congress as we have a lot of unevenness in terms of how fast different states removing. We have places like California. That are way ahead of the curve that have one hundred percent clean energy target on the books and then we have places like West. Virginia that only get five percent of their electricity from clean energy sources. Today we need our federal government to say that all states have to be making progress and to give financial support to make sure that all states can make progress. I'm really hopeful that in the next congress when we hopefully have a Democratic president that big packages of climate policy could start move through the legislature setting requirements for all states to have more clean energy through clean electricity standard providing incentives people to buy electric vehicles or put solar on their roof. Because right now what you might not realize is those incentives are starting to go away. In December of last year there was an opportunity to increase these incentives for people to buy electric vehicles or people to put solar on their roof and our Congress decided not to. We could see adoption of these really essential technology slow down. That's at a time. When we need adoption to be increasing enormously we could also have our federal government be providing money for people to retrofit their homes in the way that I just described air so many things that are federal government can and should be doing. I would recommend the work of Jay Inslee when he was running for president. Several fantastic policy. Staffers wrote over two hundred pages of ideas of what our federal government could be doing to speed up the clean energy transition and tackle the climate crisis. Why did you write this book at this time? What prompted you to do this research. I had come to understand that. The climate crisis was the biggest threat facing our society and that the energy system was the crucial thing to break the energy crisis. That if we could make progress on cleaning up our electricity's system we would have a fighting chance to tackle the climate crisis. I sought to understand what our state's doing to try to make the transition and I had initially hoped to write a more positive story about the happy cases of places like California or New York or even New Mexico but the more I dug into the cases the more I understood that we can't just tell the happy stories. We have to look at the ways that the fossil fuel industry and Electric Utilities keep the status quo in place. We have to understand the ways that they attack our attempts at progress so that we can fight back. Thank you for your scholarship looking into the future. What makes you hopeful? We're on a sort of knife's edge here and I want people to look at that fact squarely. I want them to understand. How urgent this is I think for. Too Long people have said. Well we can deal with this health. Care thing I are we can deal with this inequality thing I and we need to deal with those things and in fact we should probably deal with those problems and climate change simultaneously. In fact that's the idea of the green new deal that we need to make sure people have minimum standards of living and have minimum safety net. So that they can handle the energy transition that we're all going to go through but I want people to recognize that the climate crisis is just as bad. It is really getting desperate and the gratitude. Berg phenomenon is so positive because she has woken up so many young people and so many people all around the world to just what a nice edge we are on in this moment. I closed the conclusion of my book with a quote from her. Because I think it's a blending of looking squarely at how bad things are and the potential for changing it. She says something like we must recognize how bad things are but we can still turn this all around. We still have time. And so that makes me hopeful that we're starting to see young people in the streets organizing through the sunrise movement organizing through Fridays for future. We're starting to elect truth tellers like Alexandria. Cossio Cortez who is willing to talk about the climate crisis and talk about solutions. At the scale of the problem like the green new deal we have had an extremely robust debate within the Democratic primary. Over what it would take for the federal government to really tackle the climate crisis and while I don't agree with everything that every candidate who said at least we're talking about climate change. At least we have detailed. Thousands of words plans from pretty much all the candidates. At least they can no longer ignore this problem so it makes me hopeful that we could have a banner year and twenty twenty that we could see amazing elections and that we could finally start to get policies in place at the scale of the crisis. That's my wish for this year and I'm going to work very hard to try to make that reality. Come true here here. Thank you very much. Thanks.

"This was a policy to try to strengthen some of our air pollution controls it targeted Sofer dioxide nitrous oxides and mercury pollution. What a lot of people don't realize is that the mercury rule took more than two decades to finalize and that's because if it had been implemented faster would have shut down a lot more coal plants. Sooner when you have to emit less mercury you have to put control technology called scrubber it's basically a big filter for your coal plant to reduce the amount of mercury that's going into the atmosphere and into our lakes and rivers and poisoning people and that's quite expensive to do not only is it expensive to install but from then on it reduces the efficiency of that coal plant making the coal plant more expensive to operate these electric utilities understood that. If that maw went into effect it would have severe consequences and so they fought that law for decades and it was only in the Obama Administration that that law was finalized and started to change the way that coal plants had to operate. So you can see that using the court system legally challenging rules and their implementation is a way to slow down the policies that we put on the books. It's very very effective. Essentially what you are you in the book is that we want to have policy change to lock in and drive. Long-term change. We really have to destroy the political status quo which is both in the courts and in the party system or at least right now in the party system because eventually we might have Republicans again who would be pro climate given everything that you have learned in your research. What are the big takeaways for advocates for the climate that we can do in order to enact successful policies moving forward? I think a lot about how we can disrupt the power of electric utilities and fossil fuel companies and build the power of clean energy advocates. It's not easy to do because fossil fuel companies and electric utilities. Have a lot of power. They're very old organizations. They have a lot of money. They have very strong relationships with politicians. And so the odds are really stacked against us. We need to be building really big grassroots campaigns to sort of challenge that entrenched corporate power with mass public power. You can see some of the beginnings of that with groups like the sunrise movement but they need to scale much bigger. Their goal is to get something like three point. Five percent of the American public to actively engage in climate action like going on strike or attending protests. Disrupting the status quo. Getting to that scale is going to be quite challenging. State legislatures could pass policies that increase the resources for clean energy advocates called intervene compensation programs. This is a law that exists in California which pays groups that go to the regulatory process. The Public Utility Commission and advocate on behalf of the public on behalf of the environment on behalf of the public interest that policy costs each Californian cents annually yet saves millions of dollars in terms of air pollution in terms of increasing electricity costs. So if we had more states adopt that rule it would allow us to have more resources to battle utilities in the regulatory process. What role can everyday citizens play in making clean energy policy more viable and expansion hopefully possible? What could I do personally? A lot of the rhetoric that's been put out there about. Climate change is that this is an individual problem that we need to fly less or drive less or change our behaviour. I saw somebody say that it was. Bp The oil company that was pushing a lot of that rhetoric that this is a behavior change in individual problem and when people understand climate change in that way they fill out of guilt and a lot of shame and they feel paralyzed. And maybe they feel like they don't want to do anything about it because they don't want to change their lives and so my book is really a repudiation of that way of thinking about the climate problem. This is a policy problem. It's about advocates and opponents. Interest groups battling it out. It's not about your individual behavior change and so the question is how can you help bolster advocates to make them more? Powerful in these political fights being plugged into an organization in.

"Of the climate townhall tonight. It is wednesday september fourth. There will be seven hours of climate town halls on t._v. T._v. tonight and to kind of prep for that. I wanted to talk through some of the key points in the various primary candidates policies. They've all pretty pretty much released policies now some of them right at the last minute comma harass people to judge and looking at you but out now and they're all pretty ambitious. I have have to say it's great to see how much more time these candidates have spent on climate than anyone did in two thousand sixteen so that's great. They're are definitely pros and cons of course but it's good to see pretty comprehensive plans from everyone to help talk through this stuff. I called up professor leah stokes. She's season assistant professor of environmental politics at u._c. Santa barbara and a really really interesting researcher on all of this stuff <hes> if you don't follow her on twitter already ready you should she puts together the best and most comprehensive threads on all the candidates policy proposals so go check her out there. She's at lee stokes. That's l. e. A. h. S. like sam t. o. K. e. s. so one of the first things i wanted to talk to lee about because her research gets into this affair bat was is this whole idea of have you know how the individual stuff of relapse the systemic staff and where there needs to be policy fixes and institutional change in where there needs to be social cultural behavioral psychological things happening. I personally think all of that can asked happen. Parallel leonidas to here's her take on it. I tend to focus a lot on institutional and policy change just because i started in the field doing environmental psychology and really thinking king of the individual level and cultural change and individual behavior change and i just saw that can be effective leak and catalyze it so much bigger with policy change <hes> of course the challenge becomes when we go policy i and don't <hes> think about that individual level we can get backlash and and i showed that a lot in my work and it's definitely something that's happened with carbon prices and with other policies <hes> so there's a tension for sure in terms terms of the individual level versus the societal institutional level <hes> and it's not going to get easier because he have to move extremely quickly. That's true true and yet we will struggle to move extremely quickly <hes> well. It's not a simple thing to solve. I also asked her who she is kind of most interested in hearing from tonight and who she's most excited about. She actually came up with that difference here. She is on that well. I guess i can distinguish between who i'm most interested in and who i'm most excited about so <hes> i'm quite interested to see what <hes> inter-gang we'll talk about about because <hes> he is quite an economy class in his own way wrote a relatively critical thread about his plan because i thought it was problematic matic and you know afterwards talked to sort of profile in silicon valley who said to me well. The thing about yang is sort of willing to speak the truth and the truth is the changes really bad and we do these technologies like advanced nuclear or geo engineering or negative emissions technologies like direct air capture sure and you know that gives me a slightly different view on him because it's not that i agree with his take on all those things but i do feel that there is taboo around talking about some of these issues and i don't agree with that. I think that we should be talking about <hes> different technologies and their risks and benefits and so it'll be curious to see how artfully yang able to do that while also you know probably leaning heavily into his doom and gloom style narrative about running to the hills with your one thousand dollar. Check okay so quick thing here about andrew yang's carbon fee and dividend approach. He actually is not going with the citizens climate lobby proposal but rather the climate leadership council plan. I've written about this before a few other. People have as well the sort of key difference in the climate leadership councils planned as opposed to any other carbon fee and dividend plans is that it includes food's a sort of liability loophole for the fossil fuel industry for previous bad action on climate so you can kind of see z. y. Oil companies might like that idea kind of gets them off the hook for any of these lawsuits that are out there right now and some conservatives and even some environmentalists have made the argument that if you are sort of finding fossil fuel companies multiple ends at the same time that things won't change in that you know they won't play ball and all those sorts of things but i talked to this woman pamela gilbert. She's a consumer advocate in an attorney. She's the former former executive director of the consumer product safety commission and currently a partner at the law firm canal gilbert and ladoga and she said it's always he's the very most dangerous products or industries who want legal loophole so currently the only other industries that have the sort of legal protection that the oil industry with gatt as part of this proposal are the gun manufacturers and nuclear energy so here's how gilbert addresses the whole idea that you know you have to be kind of either the courts or regulation. Sometimes people like to say well. You're never gonna get it like it's a societal benefit to have federal regulation relation and so you have to give up the lawsuits or you'll never get federal regulation but that's just not true. That's not what happened with tobacco. Their strongest arguments arguments come in at least they're. They're offering give something up right order. Get the the liability protections <hes> <hes> <hes> you know in in the case of you know will will accept more more regulations or curbs on our you know on our actions <hes> or tax attacks tax but we need. We need a liability limitation in response. We're that really falls down and again. I you know i pointed at the tobacco. Oh situation is that. It's really you know it's important to have health and safety regulations and protections but it's <hes> <hes> it's never enough and so you always have to put you always have to preserve the ability of victims to protect themselves themselves in and and go to court because <hes> government government will never have enough money and enough resources to keep the regulations elation state of the art and then enforce them take away the courts and you're left with weak regulations standards that never improve underfunded enforcement and impacts impacts that companies are free to pass on to tax payers and we have seen that in the climate situation where right now taxpayers are on the hook for billions of dollars. There's in adaptation costs that fossil fuel companies don't have to pay even a penny towards okay so andrew yang's climate folks might wanna rethink a particular carbon fee and dividend plan. He's backing beyond that. Here's who leah is the most excited to hear from tonight well. Of course i was most excited approach enslave before he left the race. You know those that two hundred eighteen page document is the gold standard but you know that brings us to elizabeth warren who yesterday really endorsed. I a big part of increase plan which i think was just brilliant super smart <hes> and i think it shows that she you you know it's not about her. It's really about the ideas and the work and that that i really admire that elizabeth warren. I feel that she if you look look at her record has been really smart person in terms of understanding the way the system works and how to make the system work better for everyday people and hopefully better for the climate <hes> so i'm pretty excited about elizabeth warren's plans that she's put out and i know they'll probably be more because of course it's a bit of an apples apples and oranges comparison. You have a full sixteen trillion dollar plan from sanders. You have a full plan from fight in that has some blend of private funding as well as public funding <hes> but but of course warren has release just a smaller number of sort of plans and sequence kind of like what actually was doing doing on climate but worn is doing it on many issues so i feel that <hes> she is a great candidate and very smart and has her heart in the right place place and i'm pretty excited to hear how she will talk about climate change so yeah elizabeth warren has kind of in the first one to just come right out be like i'm going to just grab this part of jason's sleaze plan when instantly left the race a couple of weeks ago. He said you know please take my plan so <hes> it's it's interesting to see candidates already starting starting to do that. The real surprise to meet tonight is comma harris who came out with her policy today like you know a few two hours before this town hall is going to start is by far the most aggressively anti fossil fuel brealey. I'm genuinely surprised us yet. I kind of <hes> <hes> suspected that kamala harris would go more moderate route but her can of prosecutor side his come out and she is really he kinda gutting for the fossil fuel industry. There's this one pretty bold quote from her plan. Comma will leverage both executive authority and congress to end federal support for the fossil fuel industry. She is also talked about using the d._o._j. To prosecute fossil fuel industry she's totally on board with the idea idea of a sort of tobacco style rico litigation so <hes> definitely kind of one to watch in the climate space bernie sanders has of course released a very aggressive green new deal style plan as well but there are a couple of surprising sings in his plan. I generally like what i hear from bernie on climate. I like how adamant he is about. Not letting the fossil fuel industry regulate itself <hes> but there are a couple of surprising confusing confusing details in his plan that i think they're taking a look at here's leah explaining those. I'm not a huge fan of bernie sanders plan. Even though i know many others are are mental community <hes> there's a few reasons for that i really deeply disagree with his position on nuclear <hes> and not for ideological position reason reason i was not pro-nuclear myself several years ago but just for an empirical reason which is i've seen what has happened in germany after they shut down their nuclear player plants they are really stalled into carbon is in there like trysofi system. Even after germany you know it was a huge leader globally in wind and solar. They probably put more money into this than anybody else and yet they've struggled to reach the ultimate goal which is decarbonising the electricity system because of the decision to shut down safe <hes> nuclear nuclear plants and <hes>. There's some evidence that the same thing has happened in vermont <hes> where bernie sanders is of course based and of course it's also happened in california and so you know i think we really have to be smart about existing nuclear and i don't feel that that plan is <hes> and that's what a lot of energy experts also think <hes> i would also to say that it is sixteen trillion dollars which is very exciting and i'm really into that but if you actually look at where the money goes <hes> there are several allocations that they're not really about reducing carbon nor have they about green new deal style. You know welfare state where you're giving people paying jobs or healthcare. There's for example one hundred i'm fifty billion dollars for broadband or thirty six billion dollars for victory gardens and there's also actually seven hundred billion dollars for roads and highways which are definitely not low-carbon <hes> so versus three hundred billion transit so when you actually dig into the details of the allocation allocation and you think okay bernie sanders president he implemented vision. It's not clear to me that would really reduce emissions as fast as other people's plans and that that really matters to me so <hes> so that's where i kind of have some criticisms of birdies plan. Even though i do think it's hard in the right place and i do think he cares a lot about climate change change. I feel that some of the elements of the plan could be smarter <hes> and <hes> you know. I think it's important to say that because a certain part of our community community is not into critical thinking or in criticizing candidates and i do feel that we need to have the best plans possible we need to <hes> really hit the ground running on this and so i don't have a personal thing against him <hes> but i do feel that the plan could be better in some ways. I guess that they're real trade-offs. There and the new gear there has negative effects yeah if the nuclear plant already exist and it is already operating and we've already built it and made waste you know how we should use it for now to safely get us to a low-carbon future <hes> because the alternative is we will build more natural gas plants and that that will definitely be a problem so because that's just what has happened all around the world. We won't shut down coal plants as fast as we could <hes> because here's the thing if you wanna get two hundred percent clean electric like twenty thirty five..
