"Breathing out and hope to breathe out for many many years to come. That's not a toxin. Not in the same way that something like carbon monoxide isn't right and so you know natural gas is a very clean people. Yeah and but by. By the way at the risk of sounding kind of naive you can actually use battery storage for the sun sunshine and wind. You can store that kind of energy. Well it again california's stores about Megawatts worth of electricity so You know it to give you a scale right. California on a hot day may consume about forty gigawatts At any given time and so the battery storage that. We're getting up to in california's about one fortieth of that peak demand and so and so what that means is you're looking at. Maybe thirty minutes. Right In the more periodic energy you get other words the less natural gas you have the less nuclear power you have on the california grid. Then the bigger your battery farms have to be and the more you have to over build wind and solar to make the margins because wind and solar depending on where you are in the country or only gonna produce about ten to thirty percent of their installed capacity so just because hey i got ten thousand megawatts can produce you know when conditions are perfect. Well no usually. You're probably going to be producing. You know fifteen to twenty percent of that us all right. So can you get on. Because i want to talk to you about your governor's plan to build some border barriers. Sure i this is chuck devore. He is the vice president of the texas public policy foundation. Many californians have headed to that state. They picked up congressional seats simulate senses. He was a long time. California resident state legislator more coming up. John.

"Us something anyway. Thank so you're tied into the grid you get when you overproduce. Which often lot them do you get paid a fraction of what they're charging you so it's not you know equity here but so let's say they give you how much they give you a nikola kilowatt or something. Yeah this past. Year of overproduction was a nikolic's it was four point nine cents a kilowatt hour so They they charge about eleven cents. A kilowatt hour but the price of electricity has skyrocketed the previous years. The they pay us the pahlavi which is the largest nuclear generating station in the us. It's produces the most megawatt hours of any generating station. It's all was one of the top five in the world. I believe and the normal calvary price for the past. Ten years has been two point five to three point. Five cents a kilowatt hour and that's what they pay us. What the average price was over the years. The palo verde exchange out in west west of phoenix and this year. It was four point. Nine eight cents. I believe or eight nine cents so it skyrocketed because of tightening natural gas supplies very hot weather lots of wildfire shutting down power lines so but still a nickel at a fraction of what they charge everybody else so they basically take the power that overproduced and they sell it to my neighbors at full retail. That's the in one thousand nine hundred four. We did an initiative that had. I don't know. I figured. I just threw it out there all over production you pay the people at least Thirty percent of whatever it is that you know you're half or something like is throughout a number and didn't know any better but of course i knew the future. Well what happened was You know the solar industry. They're all calling me and they wanna be buds and and they knew back then. It wasn't viable. But i knew eventually it would be well now. We get to the point to where you are tied into the grid and a grid powers your system to even run and they don't want you feeding back to the grid when the power goes out their reasoning is is when you have a guy working on the land line. He goes out there and all of these solar panels charging system and boom. They get shot. Well one passed it to. There's cutoffs along the way all over the place and three. You know you can have a good system that turns totally off the grid so that you can use it because you didn't you have battery storage and you have a grid tie system when the electrical grid power goes out even though you are producing power. You can't use it explain that yes. Those were the safety standards put in place To keep the linemen from being shocked at for the most part. It's in our typical situation. It's a total red herring because the systems overload in a fraction of a second down because the entire your neighbor's homes and air conditioners that everything else trying to soak up your little electricity compared to the thousands of megawatts out there on your grid available you have. Maybe by system is only five kilowatts. Kilowatt is point zero five megawatt. And the the sap grid that i'm on is capable of ten thousand megawatts or just ten gigawatts so it's just a joke but it is a good idea especially if you're Good idea to have safety systems. They always designed for the worst case. Scenario though sir scenarios can exist so because of that they which the original invert systems were all based on batteries. You'd have the battery bank in your cabin or your beach house in mexico or and some remote area where there was no power lines and those batteries would power. Your inverters converter would power. Your wiring and the batteries charged by the solar panels or and or a generator. Gasoline diesel propane generator. So when they went to these grid tied systems to push power back to the grid to do. What's called net metering. What you describe as the arrangement where you're able to overproduce in the daytime and use it tonight overproduce in the spring and fall and use it in the summer and winter and then maybe overproduce over all we do. What's called annual metering here in arizona for those of us who are grandfather. We need to talk about that. Nobody gets to be. I'm on more and not going tonight. Where did he get more detail on this nitty gritty. Ruining the break. And when we come back it's all about how net metering works. and what about. I just wanna be off the grid for now you can get cheaper. Just subsidizing your electricity with your own shore. So on now you can kill and for your neighbor like sell it. No you can't.

Vail Resorts invests in massive Nebraska wind farm

"None of the thirty four ski resorts owned by Vail are in Nebraska but the company is investing in the states. Abundant wind-power. Vale has committed to buying three hundred, ten thousand megawatt hours of energy from the new plum creek wind farm in Wayne. County. That's enough to offset more than ninety percent of the electricity used at all avails. North. American resorts just give you an idea of scale to about thirty thousand homes worth power annually for twelve years. That's cates Wayne Wilson Fail Senior Director of Sustainability. She says, the power purchase agreement helped bring the wind farm online this summer. So for us, it's really important in our renewable strategy that we're bringing new renewables to the grid and the project takes Vail resorts close to the company's goal of zero emissions by twenty thirty, and we're really excited and proud of that, and we're also looking at the local level of how can we engage in solar and wind and other renewables on the ground where resorts are. She says for Ski. Company like Vale Protecting. The environment is a necessity. The great outdoors is our business and we feel like we've special obligation to protect it. So by investing in wind turbines in the Great Plains Vale is reducing the climate impact of its High Mountain Resorts.

Yeah and the thing is like so you want goofy to just Diane for these kids. Yeah I mean 'cause they don't want to dispel the illusion they will do anything to keep it the magical kingdom. Yeah okay so that wouldn't be traumatic at all. Well actually beloved characters dive in front of me a NAP sleeping. He's just convulsing. This is noon. Dance who dream of Jews.

Lord let's put a penis in the Let me read this guy's ready because there's a lot of them but this one was actually organized thought And so it gets to the bullet points So I've been working for Disney and I've got some stories to tell. Did you know there's a second Disneyland beneath the real one in the early years. The Park All walt himself decided he didn't let characters traveling through themed areas. Where they didn't belong he said it broke immersion so he had an entire complex built beneath the magic kingdom mirrored every street every right every land above it? The arrangement was designed to enable masked men to sneak around so well that your children Never or noticed leaving you happy to foot the bill Disney works very hard to keep secret. Here's another fun fact Every cast member has to be onstage. This is Whenever the potential site of Park guests even the janitors? That's where I commend for the past. Twenty years I've been cleaning up every type of mess. That Park visitors have the ability to make. If you come off become op of the teacups and paint the ground with the clam chowder. You just at the Royal Street for Verandah I'll be there. It's my job to whisk away. The spunk with the precision of a diligent surgeon is a lot easier than Than you think given the fact that we've been watching you from the very moment. I'm at your tumbling tumbling rumbling. There are cameras on you from the moment your shepherded into the parking spot in the morning until the tram drops you off the fireworks at night. Things are fine. If you know your place I learned this pretty quickly. The first lesson sticks out in mind. I'd been on the job for one year seven months. Thirteen days when a distraught looking can couple came to me and asked where they should go to inquire about a missing child. I was in zone immediately leading them straight to the office on Main Street while explaining how park employees would have their daughter escorted through the underground passages directly into their waiting arms. Upon arriving at the office I opened the door turned around. Let them inside and then turn back. They were gone. I was Searching furiously for them when the head of security emerged looking grim I had gotten maybe three words out when he cut me off. Everything is fine. said the parents have been reunited with their son. It was a daughter. That's right their daughter. Why don't you take some time off? Weeks paid vacation. We give you enough time to visit Orlando. Did you know that Park associates are entitled to Complimentary Three Park Tickets and travel reimbursements but it could be much longer than a week said. He grumbled with a tone that was very grave With finality I took the plane tickets but went to the beach instead. I did very well for myself in the ensuing years. I clean things up and I didn't question why electric meters would occasionally record ten thousand megawatt hours used between closing at night and opening the Max morning. There was no reason. Ask by dozen staff members frequently spent the night a furious cooking food that none of the staff ever ate. I never inquired why there was a yellow door in the passageway under adventure land or why got got vertigo. Every time I drove by it and no question the firm policy of distraught families that have been separated. Get them out of sight. It breaks immersion. That reason was always good enough for me but the strangest thing that ever happened to me was probably weeks ago. I was in the underground Disneyland spending my break by trying to forget the poopie incident. I'd had to fix Eddie. Ellison Wonderland ride a costume. Mickey Mouse came into the Lounge. Looked at me then sat on the opposite couch with his legs crossed. I smiled nodded and I'd try to zone out which is hard when you have account cartoon most staring at you. And why was he still a mouse. The first thing that I I do stepping off stages drought Mike. Mike and Smile Let fart and he's into relaxation mood Why wouldn't someone just for opportunity to doff of ridiculous Mao said I started back. He didn't move. It was unpleasant. I wondered if he was stuck in the damn thing and obsessively started looking for seems in the costume. But it couldn't couldn't find any. My blood dropped a few degrees while my stomach turned over like a beached whale as I realize there were no openings in the costume I mean what the hell was this guy so directly into the outfit was the illusion. That good could my very dull imagination actually have conjured up the belief in magic. And why was he staring at me. That's weird as shit. Without the cartoon cartoon mouse skin suit. There was no getting around the fact that this fucker was an odd duck who wore the fact that fact like a badge of honor Then it blinked. I don't mean the man inside the costume. I'm fucking giant. Mouse is roll over to me looked onto my face in the cartoon. Rodent blinked. It's Goddamn is we were alone in the room and I was ready to leave a bigger shit stain. The loose bowel boy on the L. is right. I often however to turn and run into the hallway instead I got a sudden burst of adrenaline fused energy when I heard rapid fire footsteps behind behind me. I tried out run the thing but my glory football days a quarter of a century all in the past so that didn't work out so well. Well I think I made it about three hundred yards before my burning lungs forced me to roll on the ground await my own untimely demise. The gloved hands of the mouse but didn't kill me. Do my blurred vision industrial grass. I was barely able to make out a man shaped size. A man shaved. Man's I shape standing above. Excuse me it was the head of security. He looked furious next to him was a man who looked vaguely familiar. He was tall Pale and dressed in a grey suit with a fedora. He did not look like he'd been running at all. Well said the head of security casually shouted clear clearly less winded than Iowa's how about we send you for this. Thank you to a European to Europe for this vacation. I'm in Italy now. A few days ago I started reading about other people who are coming out about their Disney experiences experiences. I stopped being able to accept the denial that I I worked so hard to maintain I also noticed that a lot of other people on my tour head connections to Disney despite the fact that we had never met before and we were not part of Disney. The Disney sanction tour It seemed that we'd been gathered together purpose but someone clearly didn't want us to know what the purpose I might be. It was a very odd situation so I did exactly what I've been taught to do. I separated myself in the situation as the best way to keep things clean. I didn't show up for the day trip to canola and in doing so. I stayed away from the bridge collapse a few days back. They killed everyone else in my tour group. Oh I'm the only one left to tell the story and that's real and with me making it very very clear that I won't be going back home. I think I'll be much safer. Living anonymously. In Europe Disneyland is hiding something big and the greatest strength is making. You believe. The magic isn't real. Sorry time something. Weird happens at Disney and an employee witnesses that they get a trip out of town I guess so and then they get off.

"By the way I am I I reported this little bit earlier and I want to get it on again in the last couple of days three days we've had four X. class players on the sun I just got this from Rick in Cincinnati art I'm a generation supervisor for the sin energy corporation as I type I am at work monitoring forty three electrical generators in three separate states with a total capacity of over ten thousand megawatts one of my responsibilities is to forward on solar magnetic disturbances reported to me I've been doing this job for twelve years in the last thirty days has been absolutely amazing I know the just on my shift I have been alerted to no less than twenty five over twenty that is about twice as many as for the usual time period also by the way on the white two K. problem the people I talk to here say we have no idea what's going to happen kind of a solar update for you there alright Howard welcome back fire are good to have you back I'm now going to ask you some more questions that you can't answer maybe which we talked about a mark forty eight and you said out the way you go on the freeway right the next obvious question is the submarine itself how fast can a submarine go or no better question how fast could the USS Pargo go where you know the the the only limitations were suffering speak for this of course the power plant and the group now what how fast could we go news in our the bird yes Sir if we have something of this type does better times larger than it does on the surface right and World War two boats of course if their time on the surface three to six months right they were designed almost like ships with kills him out we could do thirty not for thirty knots plus boy that's fast thirty I'm not to get away for a forty eight though well that's that's quite correct did the Russians have torpedoes he called to the forty eight we not know her No Way were our counter measures effective against Russian torpedoes countermeasures are depicted in the hunt for red October were fairly accurate ejecting canisters that made noise and so forth right and I can tell you that they were affected can you tell me that a from experience yes while that's telling me that you were fired on our mission of art were harder graphic missions what does that mean that was our are we were told that the you got me here what he wears me where I was going to what I was doing I was on a larger graphic mission okay okay we were plotting and the the the ocean for and and doing various types of observations do I know this from experience yes is there an area of the Atlantic where there is is very deep trench that you can maneuver through sort of barely at at the rate at risk in peril of running into something they're probably the is that correct is that from a a listener that's for me okay you're probably referring to the high speed underwater chase using mountains is yes well the union did you mountains are under what amounts to navigate by that is that it's quite true and they were very good at it but the underwater chase scene in the hunt for red October was entirely bogus bogus all right that's interesting it could never have happened at that speed or adult proximity all right let me read this to you it's from another submariner ostensibly and maybe you can tell me if it sounds right okay heart I served aboard the USS Alexander Hamilton SS beyond six seventeen blue crew nineteen seventy seven through eighty when I went subs one Groton Connecticut we never even wanna borders up until after we graduated and went to our sign boat we did pressure dives in the chamber practices games out of a fifty foot tower filled with water I was aboard a boomer ballistic missiles up we went out on patrol leaving only lock Scotland and would dive a couple of days out stay down seventy two days wait for the command to launch our twelve missiles when we were at sea they would only tell us we were in the north Atlantic I even became a Bluenose when we crossed into the Arctic Circle does that sound right that's partly correct that the Germans tell you the the absolute truth so seventy two days down Henrik marked my god and twelve missiles and you're just sitting there waiting to do that job a long way that's right it's hell on your social life mark what is it really like day today today today being submerged for that period of time well you get into a routine okay now of course I was not on a ballistic missile submarine is this fellow was I don't attack both so our our schedule was much different than ours we were given a mission we went out and did we got home we even got to see liberty in various ports but they're actually we we we got under way from the wanted and got to our died point past the understanding curve and we take the boat down which star caught we start getting into a I watch rotation as quickly as possible and get used to light submerged because you know it's not clear submarine can stay submerged in definitely indefinitely indefinitely the only reason we have to services to get more food into reading list well then maybe this is the right moment course this is all subjective but Dick from Fresno says you know you're both wrong on the find a submarine movie it was without a doubt on the beach I don't know how you handle on the beach yeah I have to tell you that I agree with the gentleman that was an excellent film without wanting scene where they had the street where the window was banging against the coke bottle which was hit Mattel quickly yes very wanting or don't you think yes actually I I preferred the book I thought the book was even better right I thought it was a good five read the book or seen the movie up I still think das boot is the finest of remember ever made all right sticking with it all right here's one more art he is asking horde I just have this is send this to you when I heard of during the movie hunt for red October there was an F. F. G. dash fifty one Ruben James that picked up the Russian crew well it was actually the USS Wandsworth F. F. G. nine that did that they use the Ruben James because it was in the news at that time I was stationed on board the USS wants worth at the time that movie shot does that sound right yeah that sounds right to me absolutely I'm not familiar with how the F. fifty nine the walk rate I think is a net fifty seven class ship okay but I'm not familiar with I've never been to see on a on a on a surface ship the art I mean I've been canoes and on in row boats but maybe the next time you take a cruise all come along but I've never been on a surface ship in the in the time that you were on board submarines what to you was the scariest moment the scariest moment was being submerged I am having explosion in the engine room an explosion explosion in the engine room and then having to service the boat and our completely get the boat up on the surface and then having to radio for help that's a very that's a very scary experience well the engine room on nuclear submarine is nuclear when a reactor if not you're not I'm not a I'm not a reactor operator are to all tell you as I was trained basically we had I was on a boat to have an explosion this service turbine generator the F. S. T. G. the port output connector box we figured out some kind of a short and now the nuclear reactor drive turbines you know and then we generate electricity in turn share right we have to make sure we believe in one of those output boxes and it's pretty much a blew the top off for a circuit breaker box which is maybe eight times as far as what you might have in your home and we lost power or the port bus and we had to get the boat up quick so we we did emergency blows and got to the surface to the world pressure blowing the ballast tanks and I was in the radio room serving out situation reports the captain was sitting next to me in his in his PJ remind me of my PJ's trying to get this thing squared away and fixed which we did well one build the didn't get fixed was the thresher and I I would imagine that there was a lot of talk in the navy and still is about what happened to the thresher we don't talk about we don't talk about the pressure the scorpion and the business that I was and you don't we we remember those sailors and and just I'm a little I'm a little superstitious are normal on real religious when it comes to the number of dice equal to the number services on suffering god rest their souls are nice but I prefer not to talk about those two votes it's got its scares me no I understand that's fine but that that can happen to a submarine generically yes the current but because of those two but because of the tragedy on with the pressure of the scorpions we were able as as our tragedies in others you know when the airlines or whatever or that we developed more fail safe system to keep the suffering safer we know a lot about our accidents because we are at least to some degree of particularly when it comes to losing a sub were very open yes the Soviets were not do you have any idea what they lost the several both in the recent past in the in the recent past yes we have these boats carry both a nuclear missiles and are powered by nuclear power plants correct if a boat goes down to crush depth that implodes what does that do environmentally third to RC well we believe it or not from the information and technical knowledge that I have the reactor vessels are Sir well constructed even on the Soviet both that they do not they're not compromised by C. pressure so that's one thing that we can be happy about the you're not likely it's not like we were still in primary cooling water into the ocean and killing efficient killing ourselves what about the long haul what about ten years twenty years thirty years fifty years a hundred years are your guests to remind our there have been a number of reports in the press that the Soviets would go and they would dump nuclear waste into the ocean I presume you've heard those reports laugh did we ever do any monitoring of what they were doing in that regard in those days we monitor everything we do in almost every sub movie modern they did pick this thing called the crazy Ivan and right here you're you are following a Soviet sub in the baffles I guess you'd say correct hearing his battles and they pull this weird thing where they do want all right well don't do it on they'll do turned to Porter turned to start with you he's going to do what he's called clearing it baffles so what he'll do is he'll turn his both right or left you know and without the without warning just so that he can hear it wouldn't be like you are walking on your property hearing something behind you and to your right and turning to that point because hearing directly behind you of course is not as easy as hearing things directly funnier the way our ears are designed so the crazy Ivan is basically clearing baffled we do the same thing we'll turn to the support of turn to starboard and do a a quick three sixty just to hear everything that's going around all sectors is that another words do they generally catch you when they do that or it's quite effective but are both for part or all birch and it's well number much quieter than so be it both and often we can hide behind the noise that they generated on their own boat well of course there was a story that I'm sure you're aware of of a major US corporation in concert with the Japanese corporation yes getting our technology that should not have gone to the Soviets to the Soviets that made their subs an awful lot quieter right the technology to to machine and design screws that would not capitate and that were much more efficient than what they had were use serving when that occurred yeah how much quieter did they get it was hard to tell because at the time that this supposedly happened I should say it did happen the lag time between the start of the Soviet Union got a hold of the technology and was actually able to reset the boats was quite a while so I never had a chance to hear the difference or to know the difference from the sun on the.

that you can't answer maybe we we talked about a mark forty eight and you said about the way you go on the freeway right the next obvious question is the submarine itself how fast can a submarine go or no better question how fast could the USS Pargo go where you know the the the only limitations are suffering speed for this of course is the power plant and the and now how fast could we go yes Sir because we are suffering of this type of better times merge than it does on the surface right and World War two both of course if their time on the surface three to four months they were designed almost like ships with killed we could do thirty not force thirty knots plus four that's fast thirty rock to get away for a forty eight though well that's that's quite correct did the Russians have torpedoes he called to the forty eight the night Noah No Way were our counter measures effective against Russian torpedoes the countermeasures are depicted in the hunt for red October were fairly accurate acting canisters that made noise and so forth right and I can tell you that they were affected can you tell me that from experience yes wow that's telling me that you were fired on our mission is the art world hide your graphic missions what does that mean that we are are we were told that the you got me here what he wears me where I was going to what I was doing I was on a larger graphic mission okay okay we were plotting and the the the ocean floor and and doing various types of observations do I know this from experience yes is there an area of the Atlantic where there is is very deep trench that you can maneuver through sort of barely at at the rear of risk in peril of running into something they're probably the is that correct is that from a Alyssa that's for me okay you're probably referring to a high speed underwater case using mountains is yes well this union did you mountains are under what amounts to navigate by that is that it's quite true and they were very good at it but the underwater chase scene in the hunt for red October was entirely bogus bogus all right that's interesting it could never have happened at that speed or that that proximity all right let me read this to you it's from another submariner ostensibly and maybe you can tell me if it sounds right the card I served aboard the USS Alexander Hamilton SS beyond six seventeen blue crew nineteen seventy seven through eighty one I won some school in Groton Connecticut we never even went to borders up until after we graduated and went to ours on boat we did pressure dies in the chamber practices games out of a fifty foot tower filled with water I was aboard a boomer ballistic missiles up we went out on patrol leaving only lock Scotland and would dive a couple of days out stay down seventy two days wait for the command to launch our twelve missiles when we were at sea they would only tell us we were in the north Atlantic I even became a Bluenose one we crossed into the Arctic Circle does that sound right are we correct that the Germans tell you the the absolute truth so seventy two days down ten weeks of March my god and and twelve missiles and you're just sitting there waiting to do that job a long way that's right hello no white marks what is it really like day today today today being submerged for that period of time well you get into a routine okay now of course I was not on a ballistic missile submarine is this fellow was I don't attack both so our our schedule was much different than ours we were given a mission we went out and did we got home we even got to see liberty in various parts of but that actually we we we got under way from the one that and got to our died point past the hundred thousand Kerr and we take the boat down we start talking we start getting into I want three patients quickly as possible and get used to life servers because he knows we're suffering can stay submerged indefinitely indefinitely indefinitely the only reason we have services to get more food into reading list well then maybe this is the right moment course this is all subjective but Dick from Fresno says you know you're both wrong on the find a submarine movie it was without a doubt on the beach I don't know are you ever going to be yeah all you have to tell you that I agree with the gentleman that was an excellent film we don't want to see where they had the word the windows was banging against the coke bottle which would have to tell them yes very haunting art don't you think yes actually I I preferred the book I thought the book was even better right I thought it was a good five read the book or seen the movie I still think das boot is the finest every movie ever made all right sticking with it alright here's one more art he's asking her word I just have this send this to you when I heard of during the movie hunt for red October there was an F. F. G. dash fifty one Ruben James that picked up the Russian crew well it was actually the USS Wandsworth F. F. G. nine the did that they use the Ruben James because it was in the news at that time I was stationed on board the USS wants worth at the time that movie shot does that sound right yeah that sounds right to me absolutely I'm not familiar with gov F. fifty nine the lotteries I think is a net fifty seven plants okay but I'm not familiar with I've never been to see on a on a on a surface ship the art I mean I've been canoes and on in row boats but maybe the next time you take a cruise all come along but I've never been on a surface ship in the in the time that you were on board submarines what to you was the scariest moment this curious moment was being murdered I am having explosion in the engine room the explosion explosion in the engine room and then having to service the boat and our completely get the boat up on the surface and then having to radio for help that's a very that's a very scary experience well the engine room on nuclear submarine is nuclear when a reactor now you're asking I'm not a I'm not a reactor operator or to all tell you as I was trained basically we had I was on a boat that had an explosion this service turbine generator the S. S. T. T. the port output connector box we figured out some kind of a short and now the nuclear reactor drives turbans you know and then we generate electricity in turn share right we have to make sure we believed in one of those output boxes and it's pretty much up to the top off for a circuit breaker box which is maybe eight times as far as what you might have in your home and we lost power or the port but and we had to get the boat up quick so we we did emergency bloating guard to the surface in a little pressure blowing the ballast tanks and I was in the radio room serving out situation reports the captain was sitting next to me in his in his PJ remind me or my PJ's a trying to get this thing squared away impressed sh which we did well one bold the didn't get fixed was the thresher and I I would imagine that there was a lot of talk in the navy and still is about what happened to the thresher we don't talk about we don't talk about the threshold of the scorpion in the business that I was and you don't we we remember those sailors and and just I'm a little I'm a little superstitious argument on real religious when it comes to the number of dice equal to the number services suddenly god rest his soul tonight but I prefer not to talk about those two votes it's got its scares me no I understand that's fine but that that can happen to a submarine generically yes can but but because of the tragedy on with the pressure of the scorpions we were able as as our tragedies in others you know when the airlines or whatever or that we developed more fail safe system to keep the suffering staples we know a lot about our accidents because we are at least to some degree of particularly when it comes to losing a sub were very open yes the Soviets were not do you have any idea what they lost they want the both in the recent past in in the recent past yes I have these boats carry both nuclear missiles and are powered by nuclear power plants correct if a boat goes down to crush depth loads what does that do environmentally to RC well but we believe it or not from the information and technical knowledge that I have the reactor vessels are so well constructed even on the Soviet both that they do not they're not compromised by the pressure so that's one thing that we can be happy about you're not likely not like we were still in primary cooling war into the ocean killing fishing killing ourselves what about the long haul what about ten years twenty years thirty years fifty years a hundred years are your guess mine are there have been a number of reports in the press that the Soviets would go and they would dump nuclear waste into the ocean I presume you've heard those reports did we ever do any monitoring of what they were doing in that regard in those days we martyr everything we do in almost every sub movie modern they do pick this thing called the crazy I'm in right here you're you are following a Soviet sub in the baffles I guess you say correct and they pull this weird thing where they do want alright we'll do it on they'll do Hey are you can't afford to return to start with him he's going to do what he's called clearing it baffles so what he'll do is he'll turn his both right or left you know and without the without warning just so that he can hear it wouldn't be like here you are walking on your property hearing something behind you and to your right and turning to that point because here you think directly behind of course is not as easy as hearing things directly the Punisher the way our ears are designed so the crazy Ivan is basically clearing the apples we do the same thing we'll turn to the border turn to starboard and do a a quick three sixty just to hear everything that's going around to all sectors is at another words do they generally catch you when they do that or it's quite effective but are both all boaters well number much quieter than so be it both and often we can hide behind the noise that they generated on their own both well of course there was a story that I'm sure you're aware of of a major US corporation in concert with the Japanese corporation getting our technology that should not have gone to the Soviets to their way it's that made their subs an awful lot quieter right the technology to to machine and design screws that would not capitate and that were much more efficient than what they had more use serving when that occurred yeah how much quieter did they get it was hard to tell because at the time that this supposedly happened I should say it did happen the lag time between the start of the Soviet Union got a hold of the technology and was actually able to reset their boats was quite awhile so I never had a chance to hear the difference or to know the difference from the summer the son of man so probably here to after I got out as when they were able to see how effective it was now I was in Russian not long ago I went to the Kremlin had lunch in the Kremlin was really wild Russia is a dangerous place right now the Russian mafia seems more in charge of the Russian government the military has not been paid in a long time they take second jobs and work the black market to make what money they can get sure and a lot of people are saying it's really dangerous a whole lot more dangerous now than it was really during the Cold War what do you think that that applies to the Russian naval commander submarine command as well well unfortunately I would think that it may because are you probably know these the Soviet submarine service in the man that's served there and are.

happened that I should say it did happen the lag time between the time that the Soviet Union got a hold of the technology and was actually able to reset their boats was quite a while so I never had a chance to hear the difference or to know the difference from the start of the summer meant so probably a year or two after I got out as when they were able to see how effective it lost no I was in Russian not long ago I went to the Kremlin had lunch in.

"By the way I am I I reported this little bit earlier and I want to get it on again in the last couple of days three days we've had four X. class players on the sun and I just got this from Rick in Cincinnati art I'm a generation supervisor for the sin energy corporation as I type I am at work monitoring forty three electrical generators in three separate states with a total capacity of over ten thousand megawatts one of my responsibilities is to forward on solar magnetic disturbances reported to me I've been doing this job for twelve years in the last thirty days has been absolutely amazing I know the just on my shift I have been alerted to no less than twenty five over twenty that is about twice as many as for the usual time period also by the way on the Y. two K. problem the people I talk to here say we have no idea what's going to happen kind of a solar update for you there alright Howard welcome back why are good to have you back I'm now going to ask you some more questions that you can't answer maybe we we talked about a mark forty eight and you said out the way you go on the freeway right the next obvious question is the submarine itself how fast can a submarine go or no better question how fast could the USS Pargo go where you know the the the only limitation for submarines speed because it's a of course the power plant and the and this group now wow how fast could we go news in our submerged yes Sir because obviously a summary of this type of better times submerge than it does on the surface right and World War two boats of course if their time on the surface three to six months right they were designed almost like ships with kills you know we could do thirty knots plus thirty knots plus boy that's fast thirty I'm not to get away for a forty eight though well that's that's quite correct did the Russians have torpedoes equal to the forty eight the night Noah No Way were our counter measures effective against Russian torpedoes the countermeasures are depicted in the hunt for red October were fairly accurate ejecting a canisters that made noise and so forth right and I can tell you that they were affected can you tell me that a from experience yes wow that's telling me that you were fired on all of our mission is the art world hide your graphic missions what does that mean that was ours are we were told that the you got me here what he wears me where I was going to what I was doing I was on a hydrographic mission okay okay we were plotting and the the the ocean floor and and doing various types of observations I do I know this from experience yes is there an area of the Atlantic where there is is very deep trench that you can maneuver through sort of barely at at the rate at risk in peril of running into something they're probably the is that correct is that from a a listener that's for me okay you're probably referring to the high speed underwater chase using mountains is yes well the union good years mountains are under what amounts to navigate by that is that is quite true and they were very good at it but the underwater chase scene in the hunt for red October was entirely bogus bogus all right that's interesting it could never have happened at that speed or at our proximity all right let me read this to you it's from another submariner ostensibly and maybe you can tell me if it sounds right okay heart I served aboard the USS Alexander Hamilton SS beyond six seventeen blue crew nineteen seventy seven through eighty when I went to sub school in Groton Connecticut we never even went to borders up until after we graduated and went to our sign boat we did pressure dies in the chamber practices games out of a fifty foot tower filled with water I was aboard a boomer ballistic missiles up we went out on patrol leaving only lock Scotland and would dive a couple of days out stay down seventy two days wait for the command to launch our twelve missiles when we were at sea they would only tell us we were in the north Atlantic I even became a blue nose when we crossed into the Arctic Circle does that sound right that's in part we correct that the Germans tell you the the absolute truth so seventy two days down ten weeks of March my god and twelve missiles and you're just sitting there waiting to do that job a long wait that's right it's hell on your social life mark what is it really like day today today today being submerged for that period of time well you get into a routine okay now of course I was not on a ballistic missile submarine is this fellow was I don't attack boats so our our schedule was much different than ours we were given a mission we went out and did we got home we even got to see liberty in various parts of but that actually we we we got under way from the wanted and got to our died point past the hundred thousand Kerr and we take the boat down we shift our clocks we start getting into I watch rotation as quickly as possible and get used to light submerged because you know it's not clear submarine can face a person definitely indefinitely indefinitely the only reason we have to services to get more food and to reinvest well then maybe this is the right moment course this is all subjective but Dick from Fresno says you know you're both wrong on the find a submarine movie it was without a doubt on the beach I don't know are you ever heard on the beach yeah I have to tell you that I agree with the gentleman that was an excellent film especially that appointing scene where they had the word the window shade was banging against the coke bottle which was hit the telegraph Kate yes very wanting or don't you think yes actually I I preferred the book I thought the book was even better right I thought it was a good five read the book or seen the movie up I still think das boot is the finest every movie ever made all right sticking with it all right here's one more art he's asking horde I just had this send this to you when I heard him during the movie hunt for red October there was an F. F. G. dash fifty one Ruben James that picked up the Russian crew well it was actually the USS Wandsworth F. F. G. nine the did that they use the Ruben James because it was in the news at that time I was stationed on board the USS wants worth at the time that movie shot does that sound right yeah that sounds right to me absolutely I'm not familiar with how the F. fifty nine the watch for it I think is a net fifty seven plants chip okay but I'm not familiar with I've never been to see on a on a on a surface ship the art I mean I've been canoes and on in row boats but maybe the next time you take a cruise all come along but I've never been on a surface ship in the in the time that you were on board submarines what to you was the scariest moment the scariest moment was being submerged I am having explosion in the engine room an explosion explosion in the engine room and then having to service the boat and lose power completely get the boat up on the surface and then having to radio for help that's very that's a very scary experience well the engine room on nuclear submarine is nuclear the nuclear reactor it's not your no I'm not a I'm not a reactor operator or to all tell you as I was trained basically we had I was on a boat that had an explosion this service turbine generator the SS T. G. the port output connector box we figured out some kind of a short now the nuclear reactor drive turbines you know and then we generate electricity internship right we have to make what we believed in one of those output boxes and it's pretty much a blew the top off for a circuit breaker box which is maybe eight times as far as what you might have in your home and we lost power or the port bars and we had to get the boat up quick so we we did emergency bloating guard to the surface to the low pressure blowing the ballast tanks and I was in the radio room serving out situation reports the captain was sitting next to me in his in his PJ remind me of my PJ's trying to get this thing squared away and fixed which we did well one bold the didn't get fixed was the thresher and I I would imagine that there was a lot of talk in the navy and still is about what happened to the thresher we don't talk about we don't talk about the thresher the scorpion in the business that I was and you don't we we remember those sailors and and just a little a little superstitious art number on real religious when it comes to the number of diverse equal to the number services on a submarine god rest his soul tonight but I prefer not to talk about those two votes it's got its scares me no I understand that's fine but that that can happen to a submarine generically yes can but because of those two both because of the tragedy on with the pressure of the scorpions we were able as as our tragedies in others you know when the airlines or whatever or that we developed more fail safe system to keep the suffering safer we know a lot about our accidents because we are at least to some degree of particularly when it comes to losing a sub were very open yes the Soviets were not do you have any idea what they lost they want the both in the recent past in the in the recent past yes we have these boats carry both a nuclear missiles and are powered by nuclear power plants correct if a boat goes down to crush depth implodes what does that do environmentally a two RC well believe it or not from the information and technical knowledge that I have the reactor vessels are Sir well constructed even on the Soviet both that they do not they're not compromised by C. pressure so that's one thing that we can be happy about the you're not likely it's not like we were still in primary cooling water into the ocean and killing efficient killing ourselves what about the long haul what about ten years twenty years thirty years fifty years a hundred years are your guests to remind our there have been a number of reports in the press that the Soviets would go and they would dump nuclear waste into the ocean I presume you've heard those reports laugh did we ever do any monitoring of what they were doing in that regard in those days we monitor everything we do in almost every sub movie modern they did pick this thing called the crazy Ivan and right here you're you are following a Soviet sub in the baffles I guess you'd say correct Uranus baffles and they pull this weird thing where they do what alright doing on set they'll do turned to Porter turned to start with him he's going to do what he's called clearing it baffles so what he'll do is he'll turn his both right or left you know and without the without warning just so that he can hear it wouldn't be like you are walking on your property hearing something behind you and to your right and turning to that point because hearing directly behind you of course is not as easy as hearing things directly funnier the way our ears are designed so the crazy Ivan is basically clearing battles we do the same thing we'll turn to the support of turn to starboard and do a a quick three sixty just to hear everything that's going around how effective is that another words do they generally catch you when they do that or it's quite effective but are both all both units well number much quieter than so be it both and often we can hide behind the noise that they generated on their own boat well of course there was a story that I'm sure you're aware of of a major US corporation in concert with the Japanese corporation yes getting our technology that should not have gone to the Soviets to the Soviets that made their subs an awful lot quieter right the technology to to machine and design screws that would not capitate and that were much more efficient than what they had were use serving when that occurred yeah how much quieter did they get it was hard to tell because at the time that this supposedly happened I should say it did happen the lag time between the time that the Soviet Union got a hold of the technology and was actually able to reset their boats was quite a while so I never had a chance to hear the difference or to know the difference from the start of the summer.

"Here. Just hasn't been affected, Dave value. Retail Dollar General dollar tree. Absolutely both of them reporting early Thursday. And, you know, you talk about an area that's facing kind of cutthroat competition. That certainly would be the case for those companies, especially with dollar tree and the expense of integrating, the Family Dollar chain. That's been an issue. Their last yours reports haven't been well received Dollar General is not a bit better. But you think about, you know, companies that are going to be affected by these tariff increases on Chinese goods that are said be in the works. I mean you have to figure the dollar store chains are going to get hit because, you know, they buy a lot of lower priced items, especially from China. They tried to diversify obviously that over the years. Perhaps, I mean that, that really is something to watch with these companies and other retailers. Let's face it, you know, if you're talking about the cost of their goods going up, they're going to try and pass those on consumers, and becomes a real question. Whether they have the power to do that maintain the profitability, and we do know that in the past, we are now facing terrorists that raise from ten percents twenty five percent so dollar tree, their full your outlook for twenty nine hundred actually already factored in that twenty five percent rate because it had been mentioned and they took precautions, but on the other end is kind of. Different story for Dollar General. They have been factoring in that ten percent rate. So we could hear from them about revising their full your outlook. What hit they do think that they might take from this these higher tariffs and day we fall into the gap this week as well. Yes, we do have those numbers coming Thursday, after the closing bell. You look at what analysts Ren -ticipant eating there. And you know it's not great. I mean that, that figure across the breadth of their chains really it's old navy that has done well, for the gap the namesake chain. Not so much banana Republic not so much. You know you gotta handle is looking for patiently. No sales growth this year. One percent, maybe down a little bit in the first quarter. So it's not a great picture there. I mean across their entire business. Sure, you want to focus on all I mean, you've got a different picture, but it's not enough to really do much for the company overall Bloomberg stock market. Columnists Wilson, and Bloomberg stocks reporter Sara, thank you very much joining us. And let's head to the commodity space for the week ahead. Now where the largest player of electricity in South Africa. Harley has a pulse. State owned Eskom is barely solvent. Even with the government bailout, Bloomberg's Daniel Volkov is looking at what that means for the country and commodity investors. Thanks, bob. The company that supplies ninety percent of South Africa's electricity is on life support. The country's president says Eskom is too big to fail. But if he's wrong, the consequences will be devastating for the most industrialized country on the African continent. Eskom also poses a threat to some big investment banks, and it could cost mining companies as well. Lindbergh's Paul Burkhard joins me from Johannesburg Paul e you know, there was a point in the last twenty years when Eskom was considered one of the top utility companies in the world. Now it has thirty five billion dollars in debt that it can't service. So what went wrong at the heart of it was an Eskom program to build? News. Pat's ten thousand megawatts capacity that it decided to oversee in there were huge problems there labor strikes defective work and the entire project went over time and over budget, and it accounts for a large chunk of the debt that they know and it's interesting because on this program, we've talked in the past about PG any of the California, electric city disaster story, obviously, different causes for both of those, but both really a wake up call in, in terms of similarity between the two on the vulnerability of so much dependence on one power source. Definitely I think we all tend to take electric, at least where it comes from for granted made everyone in South Africa, the think of that quite quite a bit. And so in it also has a huge effect on an has had a fugitive on the economy and the unreliable power affect industry, notably mining in that includes Anglo American platinum. And h p posed the smelter here in recent years of week here. Lot of that, from the mining space, so certainly affect business. And you say that the impact on the South African economy could be pretty devastating. What about beyond South Africa? Because my understanding is, you know, some of the investment banks holding the debt are pretty big global names. The holders listed include BlackRock, he reprise, but they still take coconuts heard the same thing for a lot of us. Now that ESKOM's monopoly the, the debt is guaranteed by the government, but those reasons, more recently become less compelling, the Reserve Bank of said that they have stressed tested collapsed by scum and the banking sector survived. But, but in terms of pension funds, which hold a lot of the debt deal with a lot of devastation. So that would. Be a huge effect throughout the country. Thank you very much. That's what we're wanting this week in commodities in Toronto. Daniel. Boko, thanks. There's been an update to the story. See yoga South African power utility, Pucca money, had dummy announced.

"Doesn't fall of moving metals support for NPR comes from this station and from alternate software dedicated to putting people first with solutions for HR payroll and talent management. Learn more at ultimate software dot com. And from the William T grant foundation at W T grant, foundation dot org. We're going to begin with some high school physics, and like any good high school physics teachers, we've got props we've got metaphors and we're gonna use them. Now when the sun hits the solar cell, it starts electrons moving in a wire. The more light the more electrons flow through that while the wires come together. The flow of electricity becomes a mighty river, and it can power millions of smoothie blenders in Los Angeles. Grow lights in Humboldt of the surveillance algebra. Rhythms at Facebook in Silicon Valley, all of this power is a California treasure. But the way the electrical grid works is you have to use the power as it's flowing. There are very few ways to store electricity use it later. So how do you capture it? We called up one of the largest electricity companies in California, PG Pacific Gas and electric arrange to talk with a senior vice president there Fong and his PR guy who accidentally got dropped off the conference call. I'm in trouble. Now, do these interviews without. Communications department. There's an obvious place to store electric one. We use every day. Are you familiar with lithium ion batteries? Yes, batteries, you're probably using one in your phone right now. In fact, California you may have charged your phone with electricity from the Sun International, storing solar energy in your pocket. Very good PGE is thinking of the same thing right now, we are in the process of purchasing. A lot of battery storage big ones, though, the size of trailers lined up in a parking lot. Imagine a thousand Elon Musk's each with a thousand of the giant batteries that he's building out the desert this problems too big. Even for Elon Musk genie is talking with him and five other battery makers there is a slight problem here. If you remember at the beginning, we found out how much electric city the sun is producing right now in the middle of the day in California, just over ten thousand megawatts all those big batteries at PG India's by when they are all built five years from now they'll capture maybe one percent of the amount of that. California will need to store down the road. One is looking for something bigger better. I think we need to go back to be a little more daring home more risk-taking says the bad with no PR person around. Okay. So where can you find more battery power sitting around?.

"You're listening to planet money. Hey, scott. It's Dan Charles. How you doing fine? I'm in Washington DC, Scott flake is in Sacramento, California. What's the what's it like out there in Sacramento today? Just weatherwise beautiful sunny day, clear skies and warming up Scotland of the forecasting business, he is in the energy business. So sunlight to him is money. Take a look at this website. He says here's a chart showing where California's getting its electricity right at this moment that shows nuclear plants gas burning plants hydroelectric dams, and there's a chart with different colored lines showing renewable power. There's wind geothermal biomass. Most of these lines are pretty flat except for one soaring above the mall is a bright golden line. That is solar power. This is an incredible chart this solar curve. It's like this mountain. Suddenly appears in the. Middle of the day starting about six o'clock this morning when the sun came up it really started granting up quickly. It goes from zero to like where are we right now? Just over ten thousand megawatts which is almost half of all the electricity that California is using right now that's pretty incredible. And just as incredible what that sunlight is doing to the price of electricity right now here, I can see what utilities are paying for electricity at dozens of different places across the state minute by minute sometimes it's expensive. But there are times, especially on weekends. When people are not using much electricity. This flood solar energy does really weird things to those prices. Oftentimes, you can have more supply of energy than demand. And so what happens is a lot of those prices start to show up as negative numbers negatives. Right. So how can there be negative prices? What does that mean? Well, what it means is people don't need that much energy. And if electricity is worth less than nothing. The power company pays other people to use the power to take it off the grid. Yeah. Like that attic full of junk, you'll pay somebody to get rid of. And there is even more solar power on the way the law in California demands, it companies are building vast solar arrays covering thousands of acres of California's desert. When you first came to us with the story, Dan, I thought this is really news to me that within our lifetime. California will have the source of energy that is safe and renewable that can run everything in the state until the sun goes down till the sun goes down. And this has always been the knock on solar energy you build on the solar cells, you run all the transmission lines, and then the sunset as it does every day, and all of a sudden you have to have gas powered generators just to keep your lights up. Which is why the biggest question energy right now is.

"To increase the use of yeti five twenty five acts in less than twenty years yes so stephen how about you what stood out for you yes so i was monitoring both solar and wind projections and they seem to be way off and all over the place firstly the solar projections are probably much more accurate they they do even the reference case model pretty serious explosion in solar still very conservative compared to what other outfits like wood mackenzie or be any are projecting but a huge modification from last year so alex gilbert of spark library in a twitter thread pointed out that solar projections this year are five to ten times higher than twenty eighteen projections and that is a little bit of a head scratcher because you know nobody in their right mind who follows this space would think that something so dramatic happened in the last year that you would need to modify your projections by that much so it just it goes to show you how much they're scrambling to keep up with market realities the second one is for offshore wind which i found very puzzling they basically show no growth for offshore wind just a handful of megawatts through twenty fifty in our own analysts at wood mackenzie power and renewables expect that we could see somewhere around ten thousand megawatts of off shore wind in the u._s. by the late twenty twenty s given the amount of policy momentum that we're seeing and the amount of auctions that are you know emerging and showing signs of success so the the disconnect between the projection for off shore wind and the other modeling that i've seen from us and other prominent research outfits is really extrordinary and then when you actually just look at onshore wind they project within a couple of years growth for onshore wind to just stop i mean just like the coal plant retirement thing that you pointed out katherine they win just stops completely and again they blame the phase down of the tax credit but everyone in the wind industry understands that there's still a lot of technological progress happening with project development and technological design and they can still squeeze costs out of projects and so the the the idea that wind is just going to stop because of the changing tax environment is not predicted by anyone else aside from e._i._a. so those were a few of the things that stood out for me yeah another piece that that always bugs me about any of these is that the demand side is just completely ignored not from a load perspective but from a resource perspective so you know as we move forward we're going to get a lot more consumer cited resources and it just seems like a lot of those are just not taken into consideration on any of these i did reach out to to try to get a sense for how do they they do these and you know this is it goes back to the seventies as a reference ks they always insist that it's not a forecast and that they can only model the information that they have so it is very very important for people to go in and provide information and data about what's really happening out there because i think that sometimes those sources are limited and i think it's important for people if they want their you know their industry to be really taken seriously and into consideration they need to take the data forward e._a. so they'll make sure it's included we need to talk about the impact now i sent show notes around in big capital letters i said very important we need to make sure we talk about solutions here or why this matters because we've had a number of conversations about we've bashed e._i._a. it's pretty well known in energy circles that they're modeling is extremely conservative and has always trying to catch up with technological trends i guess it's important for people to realize why this matters for the way that national lawmakers make choices or the way that utilities make choices how does this work its way into the way companies corporations utilities and lawmakers make market moving or market freezing decisions mean e._a. is cited by anybody who's making legislative regulatory policy and they're used as all their tarts or used as a bible in one thing i would really want to highlight here is that when the administrator cup one oh was going through her confirmation hearing in the senate there were a.

"But, you know, Google announced a way to force TV to do four hundred and thirteen megawatts of solar in Tennessee and northern Alabama, which I think are two states are not ones that we think about when we think about large renewable energy projects and then separately Florida power and light announced they were going to do ten million solar panels, which is roughly, you know, ten thousand megawatts of solar in in their territory. And so it just does seem like we're gonna hit all fifty states here. Not so in the not so distant future are these announcements due to pressure on your titties or. Oh, yeah. It he's making these decisions themselves while in in Google's case, you know, they made it very. Clear that they were not going to bring this level of economic development in the form of data centers to Tennessee northern Alabama unless TV allowed them to one hundred percent power them with renewable energy. And so this is similar to how you know Amazon brought dominion to their knees in Virginia to force them to do the right thing in Virginia. Right. And so you're seeing a lot of these states. The tilles are just being told you're not gonna get all this load growth, which is what you desperately want unless you allow us to power with renewable energy, and they're going along with it in Florida. Remember, we passed all these ballot initiatives in two thousand sixteen that basically finally opened up the the market to to solar and Florida power and light in true next era form saying we want to own it all so they wanna own all ten thousand megawatts of solar that they're constructing. They don't want outside parties doing any development work in their territory. They just want to own it, all which I'm okay with frankly. Like, I, you know, like, yes, I believe the private sector is the most efficient way of putting the stuff in. But if you know, Florida power light wants to an inefficiently, you know, we get ten thousand megawatts solar. I'm good many bad things can be said about the way these big tech companies wield their power. But this seems to be a good one. You know, they can go in and literally force utility to make market changing decision on renewable energy will they may have had a snippet of of audio from you know, an Amazon echo that they used as blackmail. They are recording every single conversation folks, including those of utility executives who knows what? Amazon Alexa, conversations will force the next big utility solar procurement, so Catherine mentioned that series. It's going to go live in April. There's another set of documentaries that just came out on Netflix, Hulu about the fire festival. This big festival that in the Bahamas that went bust in two thousand seventeen did you see these jigger, do you know about the fire festival? No. So the fire festival is the brain child of this guy named Billy McFarland who is a young fraudster and entrepreneurs clothing who spent his career convincing people to give him money to pay for his previous scams and he met up with jaw rule a famous rapper and created an a booking app for large talent. And as part of that startup they developed a. Mega music festival or what they call the mega music festival in engaged in his crazy social media campaign to convince rich millennials to come to the Bahamas and spend tens of thousands of dollars at this elite music festival. And as time went on it became clear that this music festival was a complete scam and in two thousand seventeen when people actually arrived. It was a total disaster folks were stranded, it became this crisis on social media, and a lot of people reveled in the fact that lease rich millennials lost their money for this music festival. Anyway, this guy Billy McFarland is a really fascinating character in a complete fraudster and his in prison now for six years for wire fraud, but I didn't realize in this came out in the both documentaries that Aubrey mcclendon the natural gas tycoon who died in a car crash the day after getting indicted by a federal grand jury. Sorry for running a bit of big bidding scam for drilling acreage. He was a big.
