Thousands of Israelis protest in Jerusalem, despite lockdown

"One thing that's really interesting that's come up in recent days in Israel has been the question of protest versus prayers religious leaders in Israel complained about closing synagogues. Wild protests are permitted these continuing protest against Prime Minister Netanyahu hooves, facing corruption charges. What do you make of that tension? The was a very significant scores in Israel as to what should be the relationship between competing basic rights. The right to assemble and protest on the one hand the right to worship or excised freedom of religion on the other hand i. mean the Prime Minister, who is of course, the target of the process as the in a way, stoke this attention to some extent and some even say that he has pushed for more extreme lockdown. So as to give him some more legitimacy in trying to introduce stricter. Restrictions on the protests, how significant would be that the Israeli government protest against it even during a time of crisis well, this is going to be I think a very serious mistake at a very problematic development i. think there has been more sense that in terms of enforcing other restrictions. The fact that you have this exception where thousand sometimes tens of thousands of people are congregating this makes it A. Very difficult message to convey today's rally public that strict restrictions are needed. But of course, from basic rights perspective, it's a very troubling development because you do not deprive basic rights in order to teach a lesson to convey a message. So bad communication a lockdown within a lockdown fast-changing and often confusing limitations, and this galloping infection rate in Israel has there been an impact on trust between Israelis and their government. Yeah, trusting government is being really in free fall in the first wave as being the government was Korda blinded. By this development and they reacted quite quickly in fishing, the the second wave, they had a lotta time to prepare, but they did not prepare adequately. They didn't put in a testing parameters, the concentration apparatus, still not up and running. So there's been a lot of political inciting foot-dragging by Netanyahu and the government. So when we in the I started tracking this crisis, his approval rating or trust beware sixty percent trust now it is less than thirty contrasts. So a his popularity is really gone down and I think that's a general sense that the government is very unpopular.

President Trump again refuses to commit to peaceful transition if he loses

"Lawmakers on Capitol Hill have unanimously passed a resolution. Committing to a peaceful transition of power. Should President Trump lose the election and refused to leave President Trump has not made the commitment to a peaceful transition. Trailing in several key battleground states and down by double digits in national polls, the president is casting doubt on a hallmark of American democracy. A free and fair election trump stoking unfounded fears about widespread mail in voting fraud. Tastelessly, claiming it's quote a whole big scam. But the president's own FBI director says he sees no evidence of that We have not seen historically. Any kind of coordinated national voter fraud effort in a major election. Whether it's by mail or otherwise. But Trump insists if he loses in November, it's because the system is rigged, and he is refusing to commit to a peaceful transition of power. Republicans are now scrambling to assure Americans they will respect the constitution but are largely silent on trumps merit list claims about mail in voting. People wonder about the peaceful transfer of power. I can assure you it will be peaceful. Democrats apoplectic You are not in North Korea. You are not in Turkey. You were in the United States of America. It is a democracy. Joe Biden has been warning that Trump might try to quote steal this election. His campaign says they won't let it happen without a fight, assembling a massive election protection program prepared to challenge any threats to the voting system in court, saying in a statement, they'll quote combat any attempt by Donald Trump to create fear and confusion with our voting system or interference. The Democratic process bite and the president are now both preparing for their first face off in next week's debate by didn't give us a little glimpse into his strategy. He says he knows the president is going to try to make this personal, saying Trump is going to want to quote get in the mosh pit that Biden says his plan is to try and rise above that focus on what he sees as Trump's failures and his own strength. That's a bee sees Mary Bruce.

Facebook plays whack-a-mole with foreign election interference

"Facebook said this week it's taken down several networks of fake accounts over concerns about meddling in the US election the latest crop tied to Russian intelligence services. The company says the accounts on facebook and instagram could have been used to leak hack documents. It also removed several authentic Chinese accounts that in some cases shared material related to president trump and his opponent former vice president Joe, Biden facebook didn't say whether those accounts were directly tied to the Chinese government which has denied any influence campaigns. Sarah Frier is a reporter for Bloomberg who's been following developments. This is just indicative of. How facebook is going to continue to be playing, whack a mole with these kinds of operations there they're going to have to keep looking for them, finding them, stopping them, and when I say these operations, I need what facebook considers to be coordinated inauthentic behavior. Specifically, the kind of influenced campaigns where entities from another country are trying to pretend to be US citizens to stir controversy. When in fact, they are not researchers who looked into these fake Chinese accounts found that some of them were created using a I generated faces. So not real faces. How concerned should we be about that? I think that that makes it harder to you to determine whether somebody is not a real person like often you can. You can look in an account and do a reverse image search and find that the person who's accounted as is actually someone else or stealing someone's picture. But now you can generate faces with AI, which is a little scarier generate new identities in. It's hard to tell the difference between that and a a real person. Do you have a sense of how influential foreign interference might be in the selection, which is already underway? I think the bigger issue may be domestic efforts to influence the election. I think that a lot of people have learned from the events of the past few years, just how how incredibly powerful it can be to stoke fear conspiracy and strong feelings. But that's what spreads on facebook is if you can get a reaction out of something if you can people to care and. Share and make something go. That is that's what works, and so I think that outside of the issue of fake accounts in fake identities there's this larger issue of of. The kind of viral misinformation that has spread and facebook has a much

It was notable various asset classes sold off together. So not surprising no oil sold of two because if you take a gloomy view on the economic outlook, oil is likely to fall in price nights. Villette gold sold off to gold has been wising for most of the year, but it seems also, it doesn't necessarily this year always rise in other markets falling. This is nothing like I should say the panic of where all asset classes because they was selling off. In tandem investors just rushed to raise cash but in this case, gold seems to dipped a little bit alongside stokes. What's notable is we've seen this kind of broader shift in sentiment I think in the last few weeks.

This might be the first episode dedicated to a lady. which is a bit embarrassing. I would say so yeah. But no better woman to start off this trend with and Michelle. She is easily one of the best rally drivers ever. She's a beast. So I'm really stoked that we can tell the story even if it took us a little while to get to it, that's on us but but it's interesting because motorsport is really one of the sports where women and men compete against each other as true like she's not the best. Female driver ever. She's one of the best rally drivers at. Yeah. Regardless of gender she's one of the greatest. and honestly like just watching a video of her rally driving makes me sweat.

For it to be separated by gender in in Motor Sport Really of course right now there's the there's the W. series, which is a like a women's open-wheel series.

I'm excited I was nervous leading up to this interview don't before I've done literally hundreds of interviews. Over the span span of a decade or so.

Or a photographer, your husband's a documentarian like what is going on down there Yes I live in. Melbourne Australia. I am a professional music photographer I've been shooting for roughly ten dis, almost ten years. I've been married for the same amount of time. So intended. To. Gorgeous dogs that my life will allies. And to be honest I think like you know when you talk about who I am like a lot of my identity is very much wrapped up in what I do. I. Really. Being amusing photographer as my life I've thrown everything into it. I absolutely love my job. It doesn't feel like work like it feels. Like I have the best job in the world and I work with amazing people and I'm constantly inspired by the people that I work with the work that I get to do. And yet I think it's you know the last couple of months of has really thrown a bit of a spattering the work for me personally because because i. feel like that because I. Identify with what I do. So intimately, it really has changed my life and had to find. A, way to I guess. Put. All of the energy that I was putting into my life and my Korea into something else because I wasn't able to shoot and I'm still not able to shoot. Sorry, that's way twitch gaming and I started streaming five months ago and it's it's honestly a incredible. So yeah. Over you've taken over with a you like I'm I'm relatively new to it. So I'm like trying to find out you know who's who and what's what and all that stuff and your name keeps coming up over and over again in when people talk about you even when you're not on the street may refer the reverence that they attach to your name is like when fans talk about beyond, say you like the beyond shame Of which like how did that happen? How did you get that status on the service I? Definitely don't save I so like that I made I. I Guess Sin Vive like I like to support other people said I pop up in other people's strains all the time. I have time to do that at the moment. So I, guess that. Lends itself to making genuine friends and making genuine connections with people. I think I. Also, I have a decent social media following on other platforms I was able to bring. Like a I guess a relatively decent amount of papal arbor with me, sir. I wasn't ever street I wasn't even doing the hard yards and streaming to one or two people which a lot of people have to stop doing that hang on two seconds. My dog was. Crying, he wanted to be let out. So. I. Always had a decent number on still building that audience every day. But yeah, I, I definitely don't want to be taking credit being like the biggest. photographer. Strain were on the platform or anything like that. This this table, the debate. People like shoes. And this is about the guys that have been here for a very, very long time and I would take to take any credit away from the people that have been here.

"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.

"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..
